Three years ago I published my first fiction, The Silver Cord . I worked on it for 11 years! At 464 oversized pages, this huge book was fan-funded, the result of a successful Kickstarter-funded campaign. It is now available on Amazon . The Silver Cord contains two volumes of an epic story about angels and robots and a girl hero who must save the humans in between. The craftsmanship of the printing, including a 6-page fold out, is stunning. It has to be seen to be believed. If you like the graphic novel let me know, and we’ll do the next story.
The founder of the ‘new’ determinism was Friedrich Ratzel. He supplemented ‘classical’ geographical determinism with elements of ‘Social Darwinism’ and developed a theory of the state as an organism which owed its life to the earth and which was ever striving to seize more and more territory. In the opinion of Ratzel, “similar locations lead to similar mode of life”. He cited the example of British Isles and Japan and asserted that both these countries have insular locations, which provide natural defence against the invaders. Consequently, the people of these countries have been making rapid progress.

Production has developed most intensively in the areas of technology that contribute to the technical re-equipment of the leading branches of heavy industry; these include machine building for the manufacture of power machinery, electrical equipment, machine tools, mining and chemical machine building, instrumentation, and production of automation, construction, hoisting, and transportation equipment. Production in agricultural technology is also characterized by high growth rates, for example, in the production of tractors, harvesters, fodder-processing machinery, transplanting machinery, and self-propelled chassis. The production of electrical household appliances also shows high growth rates.
