Liberman, who was also elected Fellow of the Dictionary Society of North America last fall, spent a week in Russia at St. Petersburg University and the Moscow State University for the Humanities. He gave a cycle of eight lectures on the Middle Ages, Shakespeare's sonnets, phonology, and English as a second language.

Author, Gregory Waselkov tells the story of the Fort Mims Massacre and how the battle marked the transition from a civil war within the Creek Tribe (Muskogee) to a war between the United States and the Red Stick warriors of the Upper Creek. The Fort Mims battle occurred on August 30, 1813 during the Creek War (1813-1814), when a force of Creek Indians, belonging to the "Red Sticks" stormed the fort and defeated the militia garrison.
After the defeat of the garrison, there ensued a massacre and almost all of the remaining Lower Creek, white settlers, and militia at Fort Mims were killed. The Red Sticks' victory at Fort Mims spread panic throughout the Southeastern United States frontier, and settlers demanded governmental action and fled to surrounding areas, including Mobile, Alabama. The Red Stick victory was one of the greatest achieved by Native Americans. Fort Mims is now a State Historic site located about 35 miles north of present-day Mobile, Alabama.

Holding Space Films is a boutique production company based in Toronto, founded by director, editor and cinematographer, Patricia Marcoccia in 2017. With a focus on documentary films, we grapple with difficult, socially relevant topics that challenge stale thinking and promote meaningful conversations through timeless human stories.
The company's name derives from the concept of "holding space," which is central to its filmmaking process. To hold space for someone is to metaphorically walk with them amidst their experience using genuine presence and deep listening to enable authenticity to emerge. This provides building blocks for the most powerful and honest documentary films.
Its first film, SHUT HIM DOWN: The Rise of Jordan Peterson (44 mins), was released on Canadian television in late 2018, topping the CBC Docs POV charts and receiving two Golden Sheaf Award nominations.
Building on this success, Holding Space Films strives to continue producing thoughtful and thought-provoking content that transcends ideological agendas through honest human stories.

Dr. Peter Plichta can probably be counted among the most important scientists of the present. As a specialist in the fields of mathematics, chemistry, biology and nuclear physics, he has acquired revolutionary insights during 40 years of independent research and also written in books. If revolution is always linked to a collapse of the well-tried and rebuilt, there is also the question of whether the established sciences can afford such a collapse. And if then Dr. Peter Plichta is discovering errors in some areas of expertise, that is quite a remarkable event. If you read Plichta's books, you will find with astonishment that actually many textbooks would have to be rewritten.
While Giordano Bruno, a priest, poet, philosopher and astronomer (burned as a heretic in Rome in 1600), said back then that the universe was infinite and there was an infinite number of centers in an infinite space, today we are still talking about the Big Bang. Dr. Peter Plichta has proven mathematically that Giordano Bruno already knew this. An infinite space is thus "grained" and does not consist of infinitely small particles, because otherwise they would not exist at all. They consist of protons, neutrons and electrons, of a trinity and these smallest particles are therefore no longer to smash. Therefore, the nuclear research center CERN did not get any further in Geneva, which is - according to Plichta - a money-squandering machine.
Dr. Plichta has shown that atomic nuclei obey mathematical laws and he also has the four-dimensional space with the Plichta is the first chemist to produce so-called higher silanes, proving that these oils are no longer self-igniting and are considered to be the fuel of the future, silanes are in contradiction to each other to alkanes (hydrocarbons), silicon chains with attached hydrogen, as o silanes.
The technical advantages are revolutionary. But - do we want the revolution? Dr. Plichta has also discovered that oxygen in the blood binds magnetically to hemoglobin rather than, as anyone who studies biology, learning it at academies today. Dr. Plichta has some patents. His theses and proofs are revolutionary! They turn everything upside down.
