Summary

What is a cultural error? What causes it? What are the consequences of such an error?

This volume enables the reader to identify cultural errors and to understand how they are produced. Sometimes they come about because of the gap between the source culture and the target culture, on other occasions they are the result of the cultural inadequacies of the translator, or perhaps the ambiguity arises because of errors in the reception of the translated text. The meta-translational problem of the cultural error is explored in great detail in this book. The authors address the fundamental theoretical issues that underpin the term. The essays examine a variety of topics ranging from the deliberate political manipulation of cultural sources in Russia to the colonial translations at the heart of Edward FitzGerald’s famous translation The Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám. Adopting a resolutely transdisciplinary approach, the seventeen contributors to this volume come from a variety of academic backgrounds in music, art, literature, and linguistics. They provide an innovative reading of a key term in translation studies today.

After her execution, her half sister, Elizabeth takes over the throne and promises to bring religious tolerance. Elizabeth is a Protestant, which turns all of Europe against England. Meanwhile, Ned Willard desperately wants to marry Margery Fitzgerald. Unfortunately, Ned is a Protestant while Margery is a Catholic, dooming their relationship.

    The Longevity Diet: Discover the New Science Behind Stem Cell Activation and Regeneration to Slow Aging, Fight Disease, and Optimize Weight is the culmination of 25 years of research on nutrition, aging, and diseases across the globe. Valter Longo’s unique program shows a simple solution to healthy living through nutrition. Longo says that the key is the combination of an everyday healthy eating plan and avoiding negative stressors such as low energy and sleeplessness. In the book, Longo outlines the diet plan with the scientifically engineered FMD or fasting-mimicking diet. FMD is only done for just 3-4 times a year. This does away with the starvation and the misery that most individuals experience when they are fasting. This then allows you to reap all the good and beneficial health effects of a restrictive diet.
