 Top XML : SOAP4VB
I decided to call it Kafka since a piece of software without a catchy name isn't as much fun, and I just can't think of any more SOAP puns.
For the record, I want to give credit for this idea to Don Box, who proved that you could build an XSL endpoint about a year ago.
Five days and little sleep later, I had what looked like the first cut of an XSLT framework for writing SOAP endpoints.

Many historical figures, though not citizens of Germany in the modern sense, were important and influential figures in German culture, such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Kafka and Stefan Zweig.

 Jerry Lewis, Jerry's Orphans and the Telethon: Disability Rag Classics
In 1990, MDA had spent $34.6 million on salaries and benefits; its executive Robert Ross received nearly $285,000, making him one of the top paid of all the nation's charity executives.
It's precisely because they have such an impact on public perception, says Kafka, that the MDA is the target of activist criticism.
Though MDA tries to convince the public that its detractors are simply jealous of the fundraising group's success, says Kafka, activists' real anger, he thinks, is at the group's success in projecting images into mainstream America -- images activists hate.

Williamson was voted Tucson's top songwriter and upcoming artist (even though she has been performing since the 1970s) while her recent album, Love Is Best of All, got the nod as top new release.
Although Williamson spent much of the '70s and '80s as a folk-jazz guitarist and singer-songwriter in Jerome, Ariz., and various locales overseas, Williamson's day gig now is as a criminal defense attorney, and she keeps her office in a guesthouse in the backyard at the couple's home.

 TIME Asia Magazine: It's Raining Sardines -- Feb. 07, 2005
Haruki Murakami's novel Kafka on the Shore is a sublimely weird, compulsively readable blockbuster
Also present is Johnnie Walker (of whisky fame, in tails and top hat), who kills felines to make flutes from their souls, and Colonel Sanders (the fried-chicken guy, in white suit and string tie), who moonlights as a back-alley pimp and supernatural fixer.
More than previous Murakami novels, Kafka embraces nearly the entire Western canon, with learned digressions on Beethoven, Schubert, Chekhov, T.S. Eliot and pantheons of ancient Greeks.

The film pits an incredulous, almost self-righteous individual against the absurdist machinations of an institutionalised (in)justice system gone mad, and grounds events in authentic Prague locations and 1912 period detail, yet the result boxes in the parameters of Kafka's imagination.
A cavalcade of top British thesps do, however, come up with the goods (Hopkins' oppressive priest, Stevenson as K's enigmatic neighbour).

 Windows on the World - Frédéric Beigbeder
Unfortunately, Beigbeder has chosen to intersperse this intriguing narrative with something more risky: an imaginative re-creation of the events at the top of the north tower.
Beigbeder, perhaps understandably, treads warily; regrettably he appears to have gone so far as to tone down the English-language version.
Beigbeder doesn't help matters with his father-figure, the improbably named (though the explanation eventually provided does excuse the choice) Carthew Yorston.

Beigbeder doesn't help matters with his father-figure, the improbably named (though the explanation eventually provided does excuse the choice) Carthew Yorston.
One of the problems with writing such a fiction is, as the author points out in his opening sentence: "You know how it ends: everybody dies." It's not so much a problem for the reader, who isn't expecting anything else, but it is for the novelist, who is working with the inevitable.

David O. Russell really goes over the top in this one, and despite what you might hear elsewhere, he manages to make it all work.
There are quite a few inside jokes with regards to the writings of Kafka, Hegel, Freud, Plato, Sartre, and Lacan that I found simply hilarious.
Jason Schwartzman plays an environmental activist, loosely based on a young O. Russell, and Mark Whalberg plays his 9/11 inspired Other, a petroleum obsessed firefighter who upon arriving on the scene of a fire decides to take to watering a neglected lawn rather than putting out the fire.

 Boston.com / A&E / Theater/Arts / Williamstown director search nears end
They are eagerly, if not anxiously, seeking a replacement for the producing director, Michael Ritchie, who announced last October that he would leave his full-time festival duties at the end of this summer, and would take over the top job at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles in January 2005.
Instead of "Three Sisters," the ART will mount "Amerika," associate artistic director Gideon Lester's translation and adaptation of the Franz Kafka novel, in association with Théâtre de la Jeune Lune, the Minneapolis-based physical theater company that co-produced "The Miser" with the ART last season.
The ART, whose 2004-2005 season opens Nov. 27 with "The Provok'd Wife," directed by Mark Wing -Davey, has moved its production of "Three Sisters," scheduled to wrap up the company lineup late next spring, to the 2005-2006 season.

 Sinding Paper
Dante's allegory relies on the Christian mythology that has already mapped out the universe as a scale from hell and damnation at the bottom up to heaven and salvation at the top, and populated it with resident spirits and souls of the dead.
I expect there would be broad consensus that core allegories have allegorical protagonists, a full roster of allegorical characters, and scenes of fully allegorical landscapes, "props", talk and events, (insured against misprision by topical nametags), all the way through the narrative (in narrative forms), with systematic correspondences to a single dominant topic space.
This fits one of the defining facts of allegory, that language, imagery and inferential structure are not transferred from source to target, but rather may come from any of the blend's spaces (with a bias for contributions from the topic space).
