The second story-part tells the tale of Mars Colony, their growth and survival against great odds, and their eventual encounter with the devils loosed by Mrin when she opened her "Pandora's Box." The third is the tale of the storyteller himself, and is a story of the liberation of a slave.
The fourth and last tale is that of the Confederacy, a distant group of human colonies sent out ages before, and is the tale of their encounter with the NAD and the Stoics of Mars during the darkest hour of the Confederacy's history.

 Pandora
Pandora was created to bring peril to mankind, but was also created as a beautiful image to tempt her way into the home of Epimetheus.
"Pandora is as much her raiment as she is her clay construction, which not only carried no intrinsic worth, but was tantamount to and empty vessel to be filled in pregnancy." [7] Until the containers were filled with something or used for some purpose they were simply barren decorations.
Pandora is associated with earth and mother goddess, giver of gifts, life maker as well as a consumer of life.

 Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow for PC Review - PC Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow Review
In fact, both the single-player and multiplayer portions of Pandora Tomorrow are highly impressive in their own right and add up to an experience that will surely appeal to fans of the first Splinter Cell, let alone anyone remotely interested in a game about high-tech stealth, subterfuge, and sabotage.
Pandora Tomorrow's storyline is somewhat more cohesive than that of its predecessor, and some of the gameplay elements are thankfully a bit more transparent this time around.
Pandora Tomorrow at least makes it clear that this is always necessary, and a helpful blip on your stealth meter (which indicates how camouflaged you are in the darkness) lets you know where it's safe to dump a body so no one will notice.

 Steve Krause : Blog: Pandora and Last.fm: Nature vs. Nurture in Music Recommenders
Pandora and Last.fm are both about helping people discover new music, so let's consider their approaches in terms of discovering truly "new" music—that is, artists who are just appearing on the music scene.
Still, Pandora partially redeemed itself with an inspired connection: "Out of Control" by Ric Ocasek (former leader of the Cars), an obscure cut from an artist that is far from obvious as a connection for Gary Numan.
Pandora, however, has built its service on a fixed taxonomy, and, if "lyrical style" is not in their taxonomy, you'll probably not get to filter on that attribute.

 Stage Review: Mixed goods in Pandora's Box   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
But at Pandora's Box, the new company making its ambitious debut with an alternating rep of condensed, 75-minute versions of "Titus" and of Moliere's comedy "Amphitryon," the audience kept a pretty straight face, thereby missing some of the fun.
The result is pretty dour -- dutiful in sketching in the u-turn cataclysms of the plot, in which bitter enemies become allies and then enemies, and unflinching in cataloging all the violence, but lacking zest.
Pandora's Box is onto something with this unusual pairing.
