  Burning Man: What is Burning Man?
Trying to explain what Burning Man is to someone who has never been to the event is a bit like trying to explain what a particular color looks like to someone who is blind.
This site serves to try to paint a picture of the Burning Man experience to those who are new to the project, as well as to give those participants looking to keep the fire burning in their daily lives an environment in which to connect to their fellow community members.
Art is an unavoidable part of this experience, and in fact, is such a part of the experience that Larry Harvey, founder of the Burning Man project, gives a theme to each year, to encourage a common bond to help tie each individual's contribution together in a meaningful way.

  The Burning Man - Feature of Worthy News
The Burning Man is a no-holds-barred New Age "Woodstock" style festival, where neo-pagans, wiccans, transvestitie entertainers, and back-slidden Christians go to trance, perform rituals, burn sacrifices to pagan gods and goddesses, dance in the nude, engage in sex, and otherwise "express" themselves and become one with Gaia.
The Burning Man itself is a 40-foot-high effigy of the "Spirit Cave Man" (sacred to local Indians and New Agers) which is torched, together with just about everything else, at the close of the festivities.
From Burning Man festivals to public school Environmental Education to faddish television good-guys, today’s generation is bombarded with a New Age Occultianity (western Christian beliefs mixed with occultism) that popularize the supernatural.

  Execution by burning - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Execution by burning has a long history as a method of punishment for crimes such as treason and for other unpopular acts such as heresy and the practice of witchcraft.
In 1184, the Synod of Verona legislated that burning was to be the official punishment for heresy.
Executions by burning (from modern witchhunts) have occurred as recently as 1999 in South Africa and 2000 in India and Kenya.

 Burning Man - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Burning Man is a week-long festival with international draw, held annually on the week prior to and including Labor Day weekend (in early September) in the United States.
Burning Man takes place in the middle of a normally uninhabited desert environment known as a playa, which is deep in the middle of a large, prehistoric dry lake bed.
Burning Man participants often call themselves "burners." Although this usage may vary with region, a burner is an annual denizen of Black Rock City, and anyone who embraces Burning Man as an expression in sync with their own identity is a burner.

 The Burning (1981)
A former summer camp caretaker, horribly burned from a prank gone wrong, lurks around an upstate New York summer camp bent on killing the teenagers responsible for his disfigurement.
Burned so badly he turns into something of a freak, he returns to the area armed with a trusty set of garden shears, ready to give Jason Voorhees some stiff competition.
On the whole, "The Burning" may follow a familiar pattern, and at its core is designed basically to cash in on the then-popular slasher craze, but it's a highly entertaining film of its type.

 VRMAG - BURNING MAN FESTIVAL, ONE MAN'S EXPERIENCE
Burning Man, the annual arts festival and bacchanal held in the Nevada desert, has reached mythical status, and the uninitiated are curious.
Contrast this with the experience at Burning Man. At Burning Man next to a piece of art you might see a bucket of wet paint, a paint brush, and a sign that reads "Please do not paint the art." At Burning Man art is not an object art is the infrastructure.
The burning of the Man means something different to everyone but in general it serves the same function as the burning of effigies in old pagan rituals.

 EO Library: Biomass Burning Fact Sheet
Biomass burning is the burning of living and dead vegetation.
Scientists estimate that humans are responsible for about 90% of biomass burning with only a small percentage of natural fires contributing to the total amount of vegetation burned.
Burning also will permanently destroy an important sink for carbon dioxide if the vegetation is not replaced.

They claim they want to "protect the flag," but the reason most flag-burnings protestors burn the flag is to protest flag-burning laws.

 Mississippi Burning Trial: The Movie (1988)
This story was savaged, it seems, in service of a clearly reactionary and outmoded idea: that white Americans would shudder at the idea of heroes not cast in their images.
Mississippi Burning is rooted as firmly in film history as it is in social history.
Mississippi Burning was patently based on the murder of three civil rights workers in June 1964 -- a local fl, James Chaney, and two white Northerners, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner.

 Burning Wood -- EQ Atlas
The Burning Wood is like many of the outdoor areas in Kunark, a vast open area that is crisscrossed by many wandering monsters.
Most of the outer edges of the area are fairly heavily forested and hilly, making visibility of these monsters even worse, and given that they will frequently travel and even spawn on the edges of the zone, makes hunting the zone edges more dangerous than elsewhere.
Burning Wood can be reached through several zones.

 Book Burning | A True Christian® Tradition
In the early days of Christianity, when new believers in Christ were converted, they were naturally moved by the Holy Spirit to grab as many books as they could and pitch them into a fire.
The truth is, burning a book is one of the most loving things a Christian could do for a person they really care about.
Burning books just like the first Christians did in New Testament is a great way to say "no" to Satan and "yes" to Jesus.

 the burning
Quite the grim and nasty movie, The Burning is. Oh, it has its share of goofing around -- it's set (like Friday the 13th) at a summer camp, so there are many scenes of camper hijinks that feel like padding -- but it has a memorably ugly undercurrent.
You can bet Sam Raimi took a long look at The Burning before getting started on his Darkman: Cropsy is like Peyton Westlake without the artificial-skin formula and with a heaping plate of bitter, homicidal rage.
I first saw The Burning at age 12 or so, on cable, very early in the morning; I actually got up to watch the damn thing, rather than staying up late (which I also did regularly, in those dim days before VCRs).

 1904: The burning question of trades unionism
That the Trades Union Question is a burning one is obvious from the space it fills in the public mind, the acrimony of the discussion and the wide divergence of opinion on the subject.
We have seen that the pure and simple trades union belongs to the latter category, the category of “traps,” and we have seen the reason why”it is merely a jobs-securing machine; consequently, it inevitably rends the working class in twain and, on the whole, has the love and affection of the capitalist exploiter.
The trades union question is, accordingly, not only a burning one, it presents the most trying aspect of the Socialist movement.
