Posthumus and Imogen by John Faed Cymbeline, the Roman Empire ‘s vassal king of Britain, once had two sons, Guiderius and Arvirargus, but they were stolen twenty years earlier as infants by an exiled traitor named Belarius. Cymbeline now discovers that his only child left, his daughter Imogen or Innogen , has secretly married her lover Posthumus Leonatus, an otherwise honourable man of Cymbeline’s court. The lovers have exchanged jewellery as tokens: Imogen now with a bracelet, and Posthumus with a ring. Cymbeline dismisses the marriage and banishes Posthumus, since Imogen, as Cymbeline’s only child, must produce a fully royal-blooded heir to succeed to the British throne. In the meantime, Cymbeline’s Queen is conspiring to have Cloten, her cloddish and arrogant son by an earlier marriage, married to Imogen, to secure her bloodline. The Queen is also plotting to murder both Imogen and Cymbeline, procuring what she believes to be deadly poison from the court doctor, Cornelius, who, suspicious, switches the poison with a harmless sleeping potion. The Queen passes the “poison” along to Pisanio, Posthumus and Imogen’s loving servant, who is led to believe it is a medicinal drug. No longer able to be with her banished Posthumus, Imogen secludes herself in her chambers, away from Cloten’s aggressive advances.

Wedgwood As we recently posted , Minton majolica used a complex series if marks including a date code symbol to mark its earthenware. However it was not the only pottery to date code its majolica. Wedgwood, which began potting majolica in , used a simple letter system to mark its earthenware and pearlware. Like Minton, Wedgwood was quite fastidious about marking their wares.
The entire word may not be visible but enough should be there to make out. The three letter impressed mark that accompanies the Wedgwood mark tells the story of where and when the piece was made.

Total weekly, minutes. Or 5 hours and 40 minutes weekly, which multiplied by 50 working weeks in the year allowing two for holidays and occasional stoppages is equal to 27 working-days. The less business there is, the more profit has to be made on the business done. The less time spent in work, the more of that time has to be turned into surplus labour-time. I continue, however, to receive about the usual number of complaints that half, or three-quarters of an hour in the day, are snatched from the workers by encroaching upon the times professedly allowed for rest and refreshment.
But, if the hands remain in a factory after the machinery has ceased to revolve Now, let us cast a glance at certain branches of production in which the exploitation of labour is either free from fetters to this day, or was so yesterday.

A telephoto lens is made physically shorter than its nominal focal length by pairing a front positive imaging cell with a rear magnifying negative cell. The powerful front group over-refracts the image, the rear restores the focal plane, thereby greatly shortening the back-focus length. The Barlow lens, a negative achromat magnifier invented by Peter Barlow in , is still sold to increase the eyepiece magnification of amateur telescopes. Primacy was never established and no patent was ever granted for the first telephoto lens.
