The Art of Michael Bedard

There are circumstances in history that justify ethnic cleansing. I know that this term is completely negative in the discourse of the 21st century, but when the choice is between ethnic cleansing and genocide - the annihilation of your people - I prefer ethnic cleansing. Pine Forest in Snow Photo by Ansel Adams 22.996d 01h 15mSurvival of the fittestFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.Survival of the fittest is a concept relating to competition for survival or predominance. It codifies the observance of zoologists and animal breeders that that individuals having the highest level of fitness for a particular environment tend to survive longer in it. Moveover, the longer they survive, the more territory they dominate and the more offspring they have -- tending to crowd out competitors. The phrase is essentially a metaphor and is often felt to be unhelpful: it is very close to a tautology, since if fitness is measured in the obvious objective terms - survival - the phrase becomes survival of the survivors .Gardeners and plant scientists noticed the same thing with hardier varieties of crops, flowers, grass and other plants. Everyone is familiar with the need for weeding a garden or crop field, to prevent the unwanted plants from spoiling the desired harvest.The concept has also been stretched to cover free market economics. Companies which offer better goods and services survive better in the marketplace and tend to accumulate an ever-growing market share. Poorly-adapting companies will be forced out by better-adapting ones: killed by the competition.The term survival of the fittest was first used by Herbert Spencer in his 1851 work Social Statics. It was used by Charles Darwin in the 6th edition of The Origin of Species, in a secondary header of Chapter 4 about natural selection [1] ( bartleby /11/4001 l) and at several places in the text, mostly using the phrase Natural Selection, or the Survival of the Fittest . He gave full cedit to Spencer, writing I have called this principle, by which each slight variation, if useful, is preserved, by the term natural selection, in order to mark its relation to man's power of selection. But the expression often used by Mr. Herbert Spencer, of the Survival of the Fittest, is more accurate, and is sometimes equally convenient. . At this time the word fittest would have primarily meant most suitable or most appropriate rather than in the best physical shape . In the first five editions of The Origin of Species, Darwin used the phrase natural selection [2] ( 216.239.59.104/search?q=cache:3sDItKUzLPwJ: uni-kassel /fb19/plantphysiology/wallace.pdf+%22survival+of+the+fittest%22&hl=en).In modern times, however, the phrase is widely used in popular literature as a catchphrase for any topic related or analogous to evolution and natural selection. It has thus been applied to principles of unrestrained competition, and it has been used extensively by both proponents and opponents of Social Darwinism.Many evolutionary biologists criticize how the term is used by non-scientists and the connotations that have grown around the term in pop culture. The phrase also fails to convey the complex nature of natural selection and modern biologists prefer and almost exclusively use the term natural selection in preference.Update InformationYou may report errors and omissions on this page to the IMDb database managers.

I know that this stuns the Arabs and the liberals and the politically correct types. But my feeling is that this place would be quieter and know less suffering if the matter had been resolved once and for all. If Ben-Gurion had carried out a large expulsion and cleansed the whole country - the whole Land of Israel, as far as the Jordan River. It may yet turn out that this was his fatal mistake. If he had carried out a full expulsion - rather than a partial one - he would have stabilized the State of Israel for generations. Publisher Comments:Imagine you're an alligator. You work in a factory that processes ducks. And you live in a town filled with other alligators who dine exclusively on nice, plump, juicy ducks for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. So what do you do when an innocent duckling waddles into your life? Eat him or become friends? This is best-selling poster artist Michael Bedard's first book for children. In Hopper-esque paintings, his googly-eyed gators and yellow-billed quackers take center stage in an offbeat story about a decidedly odd couple -- and the friendship they make in an alligator-eat-duck world.*Review: It is good to see a duck tinkering with destiny, and it is grand to see him turn a potentially depressing ending into a happy one Kirkus, 09/15/1998*Synopsis:When an alligator befriends a lonely duck he faces the wrath of his fellow alligators who think that ducks are for one thing only: eating. Illustrated with color paintings.*Synopsis:A sympathetic alligator befriends a lonely duck and becomes alienated from the rest of the town's alligators who think of ducks only as food.*back to top* 1995-2004 Muze Inc.
