Kaleidoscope View



Kaleidoscope View
Buiilding a kaleidoscope, need advice?

This is for a school project. Specifically, what I could use for the mirrored interior surfaces that would be cheap and easy to use. Actual glass mirrors are probably out, since I don’t have a class cutter, and i’d like to avoid sharp edges. Any general tips would be appreciated as well, such as how I could attach a viewing chamber and have it rotate freely without letting in too much light.

I’m not sure what kind of items you can use but one with lots of color would be tiny beads you can find them at craft stores and maybe other items as well the mirror in the size you need~~there are so many things in a craft store ~~Perhaps go on line to the mechanics of how to etc.

This award winning and tragically timely book examines religion’s strained and often violent role in some fourteen countries around the globe, ranging from Brazil and Guatemala to Poland, Northern Ireland, Sweden, Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan, Indonesia, Israel, India, Thailand, Japan, China and the United States. It offers both a personal account of the author’s travels to each of these nations and bold new observations on issues such as globalization, fundamentalism, terrorism, and secularization, now vexing scholars and policy-makers alike. Jay Demerath describes how each world religion differs in its various national contexts by, for example, depicting Islams in no less than six countries. He argues that the crucial factor in religion’s relation to violence is its relation to power, but draws a careful distinction between religion’s unavoidable involvement in politics and its unjustifiable involvement in the state. Finally, he views America’s claim as the world’s most religion nation through a comparative kaleidoscope. The result is a country that is not more religious but differently religious, with its unique combination of congregational religion, religious pluralism, civil religion, and the separation of church and state. In short, this is a uniquely valuable work, especially in a post-9/11 world.

From Man Booker-shortlisted, IMPAC Award-winning author Nicola Barker comes an exuberant, multi-voiced new novel mapping the extraordinary life and legacy of a 19th-century Hindu saintHe is only four years older, but still I call him Uncle, and when I am with Uncle I have complete faith in him. I would die for Uncle. I have an indescribable attraction towards Uncle. . It was ever thus. To the world, he is Sri Ramakrishna-godly avatar, esteemed spiritual master, beloved guru (who would prefer not to be called a guru), irresistible charmer. To Rani Rashmoni, she of low caste and large inheritance, he is the brahmin fated to defy tradition and preside over the temple she dares to build, six miles north of Calcutta, along the banks of the Hooghly for Ma Kali, goddess of destruction. But to Hriday, his nephew and longtime caretaker, he is just Uncle-maddening, bewildering Uncle, prone to entering ecstatic trances at the most inconvenient of times, known to sneak out to the forest at midnight to perform dangerous acts of self-effacement, who must be vigilantly safeguarded not only against jealous enemies and devotees with ulterior motives, but also against that most treasured yet insidious of sulfur-rich vegetables: the cauliflower. Rather than puzzling the shards of history and legend together, Barker shatters the mirror again and rearranges the pieces. The result is a biographical novel viewed through a kaleidoscope. Dazzlingly inventive and brilliantly comic, irreverent and mischievous, The Cauliflower delivers us into the divine playfulness of a 21st-century literary master.
