Writing for Art: The Aesthetics of Ekphrasis

Writing for art is a concise introduction to the subject of ekphrasis, and the first study to offer a useful general survey of the larger philosophical and theoretical questions arising from the encounter of literary texts and artworks.Stephen Cheeke offers close readings of poems and prose from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries alongside a generous amount of illustrations, covering a broad range of writing and theory about the relation of literary texts to the visual arts, and extending the subject of ekphrasis to include literary works on photography, as well as celebrated prose descriptions of artworks.

"Writing for art is an exigent text, is lucidly and engagingly written. Cheeke makes one want to read the books and poems and look at the pictures again."

Jessica Pidsley 39:s Imoerfections: A Perfectionist 39:s Guide To Becoming Imoerfect eBook: Jessica Pidsley, Super Mega Action Plus

A comical self-help book for anyone who's ever worried that they weren't enough just as they are. Part diary, part biography, part self-help manual, part literary experiment. Jessica Pidsley is the perfectly imperfect author for this book and shares her journey into the heart of her perfectionism to help you feel that bit more normal. Becoming imoerfect is about allowing what "is" rather than constantly pursuing what "should be" and is a celebration of our inherent contradiction, our essential humanness.

That message that she's been sending all along...

Give Us ONE Day and We'll Hand You the Keys to Her Mind

And we'll do it for less than the cost of a cosmopolitan. Even if you've never heard a single fact about body language before, you'll find out in this book what a powerful tool it can be both for you and for her.

Knowing Whether She's Interested or Not in Just a Few Moments IS Possible, Even if You're a Complete Beginner

You'll learn how to spot the most important signals and weigh them up in the right context to tell what she's trying to say.

Within this guide, you'll discover:

This Guide Will Save You Over $500 on a Useless Course

You'll find plenty of courses out there for people who want to learn body language, but why would you risk wasting at least $500 and hours upon hours of your time on something that may or may not work? It's a no brainer - This proven guide to understanding female body language has EVERYTHING you need, for a fraction of the cost.

Don't Just Take Our Word for It...

We've been sharing our knowledge about body language for years. Here's what just a couple of people who have read this book had to say:

"It is concise, well-structured, and gives valid information that a purchaser of this book would be looking for. There is no wool over the eyes here - my smile says I like it, my lips say it is a must read! A++"

"I would highly recommend every guy reading this book so they can understand their girlfriend, wife, or any women in their life"

Wonderland: A Year of Britain 39:s Wildlife, Day by Day

'Vibrant, fascinating, poetic - a year in living things: all the things we love, all the things we wish we could, all the little things we step over and never know - the best of British wildlife from two superb naturalists and writers' CHRIS PACKHAM

From blackbirds, beavers and beetles to tawny owls, natterjack toads and lemon slugs. Every day of the year, winter or summer, in every corner of the British Isles, there's plenty to see if you know where - and how - to look.

From encounters with the curious black redstart, which winters on our rocky coasts, to the tiny green snowdrop shoots that are the first sign that spring might be round the corner. And from the blossom-time and dawn choruses of April and May into the abundant noisiness of summer, where days start with hawker dragonflies and drowsy bumblebees and end with glow-worms and ghost moths: to autumn when in the early morning mist of London's Richmond Park male red deer lock horns in competition for a mate.

Nature is always full of surprises - whether it's the strange behaviour of clothes moths or the gruesome larder of the strike. Distilling two lifetimes' knowledge, expert insight and enthusiasm, award-winning authors and passionate naturalists Brett Westwood and Stephen Moss take us through the year, day by day, sharing the unexpected delights that we can experience in our skies, beaches, rivers, fields, forests and back gardens. There are all kinds of adventures waiting on your doorstep, any day of the year, all you need is Wonderland.

Vibrant, fascinating, informative . . . A brilliant bouquet of the best of British wildlife from two superb naturalists and writers . . . A poetic treasury that charts a year in living things, all the things we love, all the things we wish we could, all the little things we step over and never know (Chris Packham)A beautifully written love letter to the astonishing variety of Britain's wildlife, animal, vegetable and fungal . . . Although such an elegantly written book can be read cover to cover, it could also function as a day-to-day reference. A nice one to keep by your bedside, suggesting what to look out for tomorrow (Sunday Times)Westwood and Moss are the perfect guides for a seasonal tour of nature's Wonderland. Inspired, friendly and blessed with apparently limitless knowledge, they reveal the when, where and how of nature. But more than that they offer the here, the gift of making you feel present, sharing the wonder and energy of life all around us, from the mountaintops to the city park (Peter Marren)This uplifting nature diary highlights natural wonders to experience every day of the year. The expert naturalists behind it are passionate about re-engaging with our wildlife. And, encouragingly, many of the adventures detailed start in our own back gardens (Saga)An essential companion for all wildlife lovers, taking the reader on a day by day exploration of the wonders of nature across the period of a year (Choice magazine)Drawn from their personal experiences and vast knowledge, Brett Westwood and Stephen Moss have detailed a whole year (including a leap day, just to be safe). Each date covers a different species and provides a tantalising glimpse into the natural world . . . The evocative writing will bring to mind the times the reader has seen various species. For those not yet seen, the reader can't help but be inspired, and start to wistfully daydream about seeing them (Countryfile)I thought I was pretty knowledgeable about wild flowers and Britain's wildlife, but Wonderland has taught me a lot about what to watch out for. I like the way it's written in the form of a diary instead of a guide, which makes it more engaging and accessible . . . Fascinating stuff, and it will open your eyes about how rich in wildlife this island is (Horse & Countryside)An uplifting book that reminds readers how benevolent and hospitable even the most apparently insalubrious landscapes can be . . . absorbing enough to read cover to cover (OLDIE)They write with the deep authority of personal, first-hand experience . . . clear, evocative and straightforward, never overwritten or pretentious, but always informative, enjoyable and stimulating (BIRDWATCH)

It's a sound I should be hearing regularly, as I plan on wrapping up more than a few of these gems."

Mediterranean Gardening: A Waterwise Approach

Gardening in harmony with a Mediterranean climate means taking advantage of winter rain and allowing the garden to rest over hot summers. In this beautifully illustrated, practical handbook, Heidi Gildemeister provides both novice and experienced gardeners with a comprehensive guide for waterwise gardening, with over one thousand drought-tolerant Mediterranean plants chosen both for their beauty and for their easygoing ways. Well indexed with common and botanical names, "Mediterranean Gardening" will be indispensable not only for gardeners in California, the Mediterranean basin, and Mediterranean climate areas in South America, Australia, and Africa, but for anyone living in a region that experiences drought. Gildemeister explains how drought-tolerant plants that are suitably matched with a site and carefully planted and mulched can live on winter rain and, once established, do not need additional summer water - as in nature. The Plant Selection lists over one thousand plants from nearly five hundred genera, including their preferred growing conditions, propagation, best use, and maintenance. Guidelines in eight steps describe the planning of waterwise gardens, such as for the establishment of dappled shade to conserve precious soil moisture. Successful alternatives to the water-intensive lawn offer attractive design ideas. "Mediterranean Gardening" offers a wealth of information: 'easy' plants for the beginner, new choices for the garden architect, and for botanists the latest findings on minimum temperatures plants can endure. An extensive bibliography covering drought tolerance and a list of useful addresses make this book as helpful to people converting to water-, labor-, and ecology-conscious gardening as to those starting from scratch.
--This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

"This is no ordinary book on drought-tolerant plants, but the accumulated wisdom of twenty years spent learning about the Mediterranean climate, and its plants and soils. The learning was not the casual process of one warned by municipal authorities that water is becoming scarce, but the urgent seeking for knowledge of an intelligent gardener entirely dependent on rainfall. . . . The pictures, too, are delightfully different from those we have come to expect in books on waterwise gardening."--"Pacific Horticulture" --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Cognitive Assessment for Clinicians (Oxford Medical Publications)

This remarkable new book provides a unique, practical guide to cognitive testing for clinicians.Incorporating the enormous advances in the understanding of cognitive function over the past decade, the author - himself a practising behavioural neurologist - presents the theory behind cognitive assessment and advocates a practical approach to testing.Twelve case histories illustrate this pragmatic approach and tips on physical examination are presented making this an invaluable aid to bedside assessment. A useful appendix including standardized mental test schedules supplements the text. This unique guide will be invaluable to every clinician who wishes to enhance standards of cognitive assessment.

This is an excellent book, bringing the experience of a specialist clinician, and a little of the mystery of the neuropsychological assessment into the reach of general clinicians with an interest in cognitive assessment. It has useful practical advice, and I particularly found the illustrative cases helpful. Highly recommended. (Amazon Customer Reviews,)This is an excellent introduction to cognitive assessment for clinicians who need more than the rudimentary tests they apply, to understand the underlying principles and disorders which affect cognitive functions and to have a working knowledge of more specialist tests that specialists like clinical psychologists use. An essential read for anyone working in geriatric medicine or old age psychiatry or neuropsychiatry. (Amazon Customer Reviews,)In the UK core medical training, there is virtually no mention of cognitive neurology. It hardly appears in the MRCP(UK) either. This is staggering given the increasing prevalence and dementia of dementia, worldwide and specifically in the UK. Prof. Hodges' brief guide will therefore be enormously useful to junior physicians who wish to have a sound overview of the cognitive assessment, written by one of the most well respected experts in the world. Unlike other guides, it is written in easily accessible language, and does not have an undue emphasis on mnemonic functions subserved by the medial temporal lobe (notwithstanding the incredible importance of Alzheimer's disease in this area). This guide is a joy to read, and will also be of use to other health professionals. (Amazon Customer Reviews,) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Who Thought This Was a Good Idea?: And Other Questions You Should Have Answers to When You Work in the White House

Alyssa Mastromonaco worked for Barack Obama long before he began his campaign for president. As director of campaign operations, she made Hope and Change happen through blood, sweat, tears, and lots of briefing binders. But for every historic occasion-meeting the Queen of England, tussling with President Karzai's guards, or eating chicken tenders at Houlihan's as Obama was elected President-there were many less than perfect moments when it was up to Alyssa to save the day. Here Alyssa shares the strategies that made her successful in politics and the White House-including the importance of confidence, the value of not being a jerk, and why ultimately everything comes down to hard work (and always carrying a spare tampon). Full of hilarious, never-before-told stories, Who Thought This Was a Good Idea? is an intimate and admiring portrait of a president, a candid book of advice for young women, and a promising debut from a savvy political star.

"I've often wondered how a woman can be so many things wrapped up in one dynamic package.

The Nazi Dictatorship and the Deutsche Bank

Examines the role of Deutsche Bank, Germany's largest commercial bank, during the Nazi dictatorship, and asks how the bank changed and accommodated to a transition from democracy and a market economy to dictatorship and a planned economy. Set against the background of the world depression and the German banking crisis of 1931, the book looks at the restructuring of German banking and offers material on the bank's expansion in central and eastern Europe. As well as summarizing research on the bank's controversial role in gold transactions and the financing of the construction of Auschwitz, the book also examines the role played by particular personalities in the development of the bank, such as Emil Georg von Strauss and Hermann Abs.

'James' monograph is well researched and documented. By drawing together the most important elements of his two previous publications, James' monograph of Deutsche Bank is more readily accessible to readers. We are left with the image of a bank that reluctantly became involved in the racist and expansionary policies of the Third Reich, whose powers were subordinated to the state.' Business History

The Origins of Greek Religion

Dietrich starts from the premises that beliefs and their associated rites are inherently conservative and that, even where populations change, they tend to do so gradually, creating fusions rather than wholesale disruptions in ritual practice. An understanding of classical Greek religion thus, necessarily, depends on appreciation of its forerunners in the Bronze Age: and they, in turn, on evidence from the better documented religions of the Middle East. Dietrich's four main chapters deal first with those eastern links: then with the old traditions of Minoan Crete: next with the interplay of pre-Greek Minoan and Greek Mycenaean cultures: and finally he attempts to bridge the commonly assumed divide between bronze-age and archaic Greece.

Bernard C. Dietrich was Professor of Greek in the University of Wales, Aberystwyth. .

So You Have to Have a Portfolio: A Teacher 39:s Guide to Preparation and Presentation

The purpose of So You Have to Have a Portfolio? A Teacher's Guide to Preparation and Presentation is to offer universities, colleges, professors, teachers, applicants for National Certification and students a book for a practical approach for portfolio preparation. The book may be used for individualized professional development, in teacher assessment for tenure and advancement, and in teacher preparation courses. Disciplinary fields to help those who have to present a portfolio to know both the theory and good practices for individual fields of study may also easily adapt it. The authors have defined a portfolio, given the theoretical base for the various kinds of portfolios, and shown how to collect data for an appropriate portfolio presentation. This theoretical and definitional material is contained in the first four chapters of the book with an acronym the authors have coined CORP: collection, organization, reflection, and presentation. These chapters deal with the importance of using creativity in the collection, organization, reflection, and presentation of the assessment portfolio. They offer several tools for each of the processes and compare the portfolio process approach with the other disciplinary processes.

"This practical, yet thoughtfully prepared book is a worthwhile text and an excellent primer for teacher educators involved in familiarizing teacher candidates about portfolio development and assessment." (Orest Cap, Professor of Education)"Portfolios are used more and more in the education field. This book is user-friendly for anyone, whether starting a new portfolio, or updating an older one. A portfolio truly has to reflect the owner and this book helps to show how that can be done." (Karen K. Coblentz, Principal)

Key Challenges in Biomass Gasification Processes: Model and Experiment based Investigation of Potential of Biomass Gasification Processes

Biomass gasification is a developing technology that can be used to achieve an increased use of biomass by generating a syngas rich in H2 and CO. However, biomass gasification still holds many research and development challenges. One of the main operational problems is tar production, which is also an environmental one. This book focuses on homogeneous and heterogeneous tar cracking studies of a newly formed wood pyrolysis tar with reaction conditions similar to gasification and combustion. Operating conditions have been identified by sensitivity analysis to reduce the tar to maximum possible extent. The results are very useful for the design of robust tar cracking gasifier. This book is suitable for students in all engineering discipline. It will also be helpful to research scientists and practising engineers.

Sons of His Purpose: The interview of the ministry of Reg Layzell, and his son, Hugh, during a season of revival

SONS OF HIS PURPOSE is BOOK 1 of a trilogy, which chronicles the ministry of a father and his son – who, with their wives, were co-workers with God in His purpose for the Church and the world He loves.The principle account describes the conversion of a declared young atheist in 1932 and his remarkable spiritual journey of 52 years - first as a successful Christian businessman - then as Pastor/Founder of Glad Tidings Missionary Society, Vancouver, BC, during a restoration revival movement in 1948. Reg Layzell was instrumental in training and thrusting out a significant number of young adults as pioneer missionaries to various nations.This vision was sustained in a congregation imbued with a passion to pray and give liberally to fulfill the purpose of God.A companion account describes our heritageand up-bringing in Ontario, Bible College, wedding in 1948, and subsequent ministry with Hugh’s father during the early years of the outpouring at Glad Tidings, and four years of church planting in the U.S. and Canada, prior to our call to Africa in 1956.

The Four Wise Men

Displaying his characteristic penchant for the macabre, the tender and the comic, Michael Tournier presents the traditional Magi describing their personal odysseys to Bethlehem-and audaciously imagines a fourth, "the eternal latecomer"' whose story of hardship and redemption is the most moving and instructive of all. Prince of Mangalore and son of an Indian maharajah, Taor has tasted an exquisite confection, rachat loukoum, and is so taken by the flavor that he sets out to recover the recipe. His quest takes him across Western Asia and finally lands him in Sodom, where he is imprisoned in a salt mine. There, this fourth wise man learns the recipe from a fellow prisoner, and learns of the existence and meaning of Jesus.

Pointers from Ramesh Balsekar

Gautam Sachdeva first visited the Advaita sage Ramesh Balsekar in February 2000, and has been attending his talks ever since. Over a period of eight years, he also found himself taking on the role of a publisher, working intimately with Ramesh in the process of publishing some of his books.In May 2007, Gautam wrote an article in Life Positive, India's leading spiritual magazine, as a tribute to Ramesh on his 90th birthday. With the heartwarming response from readers to this article, and Ramesh's suggestion to make it into a booklet, he then put down what he considered the core of the teaching as presented by Ramesh - to seekers from all over the world - in his morning talks.Most of Ramesh's books have been published from his original hand-written notes, or are transcripts of dialogues with seekers. This book is a summation of the core concepts in the "spoken word" of Ramesh, as if he were walking the seeker through his entire teaching in one morning talk.This is what Pointers from Ramesh Balsekar is about - pointers to dealing with life's situations, its pleasures and pains, with equanimity and peace of mind - from one of the world's leading Advaita sages.

Gautam Sachdeva With a background in advertising, Gautam Sachdeva sought to self-publish his mother`s books on her spiritual journey, and founded Yogi Impressions in the year 2000. Little did he know that Yogi Impressions would be publishing works by other spiritual masters in the years ahead. Gautam started his spiritual journey under Justice M. L. Dudhat and over the years has been under the specific influence of masters of non-duality like Ramesh Balsekar and Eckhart Tolle. He has spent eight years in close association with Ramesh Balsekar, which included working together closely in the publishing of quite a few books of one of the world’s leading Advaita sages. Gautam writes articles regularly for Life Positive, India`s leading spiritual magazine. He lives in South Mumbai. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Piaget 39:s Theory: Prospects and Possibilities (Jean Piaget Symposia Series)

This volume marks the 20th Anniversary Symposium of the Jean Piaget Society. Some of the American contributors were among the first to introduce Piaget to developmental and educational psychology in the United States, while some of the international contributors worked with Piaget to develop his program of genetic epistemology and continue to make significant contributions to it.

Within this volume the possibility of Piaget's paradigm is reviewed not only as the stuff of normal science, yielding fascinating empirical questions that linger within it, but also, and more importantly, as the stuff of revolutionary science, with continuing potential to comprehensively structure our thinking about developmental theory.

The constructive contribution Piaget's theory has for developmental theory emerges as four central themes in the volume:

Harmony in Beethoven

David Damschroder's ongoing reformulation of harmonic theory continues with a dynamic exploration of how Beethoven molded and arranged chords to convey bold conceptions. This book's introductory chapters are organized in the manner of a nineteenth-century Harmonielehre, with individual considerations of the tonal system's key features illustrated by easy-to-comprehend block-chord examples derived from Beethoven's piano sonatas. In the masterworks section that follows, Damschroder presents detailed analyses of movements from the symphonies, piano and violin sonatas, and string quartets, and compares his outcomes with those of other analysts, including William E. Caplin, Robert Gauldin, Nicholas Marston, William J. Mitchell, Frank Samarotto, and Janet Schmalfeldt. Expanding upon analytical practices from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and strongly influenced by Schenkerian principles, this fresh perspective offers a stark contrast to conventional harmonic analysis – both in terms of how Roman numerals are deployed and how musical processes are described in words.

David Damschroder's ongoing reformulation of harmonic theory continues with a dynamic exploration of how Beethoven molded and arranged chords to convey bold conceptions. The early chapters guide readers in establishing a broad and penetrating perspective on harmony, while the later chapters extend into the realm of Schenkerian analysis.

Out of the Dark

Life for Linda Caine should hold no fears. As a contented wife and mother, she should have everything to live for. Yet a blackness has started to leak into her thoughts. Images flash through her head leaving her stunned and breathless. On the face of it there is no rational explanation for the way she feels. Linda believes there is something malign inside her. But in the back of her mind a voice tells her over and over again that everything will be OK. When it finally gets too much, she can always simply die. 'How shall I die if that time comes? I need to know these things. They have to be planned.' It must look like an accident. She will deliberately drive off the road on her way home from her weekly shopping trip. After all, who commits suicide with a load of groceries in their car?

The raw and powerful journey Linda takes with her psychotherapist Robin Royston to discover what lies at the heart of her deptression will leave you shocked. The secrets in her African childhood and adolescence are buried so deep that to reveal them may destroy her completely. Together Linda and Robin race to unravel the clues, before it is too late.

OUT OF THE DARK is Linda Caine's remarkable and uplifting story from the agonies of mental breakdown to the painful piecing together of the past that was vital for her survival. Both her courage and Robin's persistence during the process show the power of the human spirit at its most indomitable and inspiring.

"'Reads like a psychological detective story...Linda's passage back to health and sanity makes for compulsive reading'" (Mail on Sunday)

Earth Summit Ethics: Toward a Reconstructive Postmodern Philosophy of Environmental Education (SUNY series in Constructive Postmodern Thought)

On the eve of the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Fernando J. R. da Rocha challenged environmental philosophers to suggest and develop effective ways in which universities might engender ecological literacy and environmental ethics. The result was a preconference held in Porto Alegre, Brazil, whose aim was to put the summit in philosophical perspective, influence its outcome, and chart a new course, linking environment and ethics through university education.

This book is an outgrowth of the Porto Alegre conference, and the international environmental philosophers and educators represented here inaugurate a constructive dialogue that will continue well into the twenty-first century. Among the contributors to the volume are environmental philosophers Andrew Brennan, J. Baird Callicott, Fernando J. R. da Rocha, and Holmes Ralston, III, and education theorists Peter Madsen and John Lemons. In addition, the book introduces English-language readers to the work of French philosopher Catherine Larrere, Spanish philosopher Nicholas Sosa, and Brazil's radical former Secretary for the Environment and deep ecologist Jose Lutzenberger.

"With scientists laying the genetic basis for a re-emergent sociobiology and others promoting the globalization of artificial intelligence, it is a welcome relief to read this collection of essays by some of the most prominent environmental philosophers. Representing Atlantic Rim countries, these philosophers address the conceptual and moral double binds that characterize modernity's relationship to the environment. Their essays not only represent powerful critiques but also equally important guidelines for a constructivist approach to the cultural transitions now being dictated by the environmental crisis." --C. A. Bowers, author of Educating for an Ecologically Sustainable Culture

Calculations of quantitative chemical analysis

Not illustrated. 1922 Excerpt: ...volume of acid required is a measure of the total alkaline strength of the sample and of the actual weight of Na2C03 present. In calculating, the equivalent weight of the Na2C03 would be taken as one-half of the molecular weight. On the other hand, if phenolphthalein were used as the indicator and the titration were carried out in the cold, the color change from pink to colorless would occur when the carbonate had been changed to bicarbonate: Na2C03 + H+-NaHC03 + Na+. The volume of standard acid required to titrate sodium carbonate to an end point with methyl orange as the indicator, is twice that required if phenolphthalein were used as the indicator, since twice the number of hydrogen-ion equivalents are involved. The equivalent weight of the Na2C03 is identical in the latter case to the whole molecular weight, NaCO and the calculated weight of Na2C03 present is the same in the two cases. It is important to note that if, with phenolphthalein as the indicator, an excess of standard acid is added to the carbonate solution and the carbon dioxide is expelled by boiling, the sodium carbonate will be completely neutralized. Neutralization of the excess acid with standard alkali will give a net volume of acid which will be the same as that used with methyl orange as the indicator. If a solution contains sodium bicarbonate and inactive impurities,-the NaHCOamay be titrated with standard acid using methyl orange as the indicator or in boiling solution using phenolphthalcirH NalR3 + H+-»Na+ + H20 + C02. The equivalent weight of the NaHC03 in either case is identical to the molecular weight. As stated above, a cold solution of pure sodium bicarbonate is inert to phenolphthalein and cannot be titrated when phenolphthalein is used as the indicator. There now rema...


A groundbreaking and always controversial musician, M.I.A. is an influential artist and an important cultural figure of the last decade. Here is a documentation of her entire visual output and a telling of her story in collages, photos, and prints from her early years in art school at Central Saint Martins London through to her hugely successful three albums, mixtapes, and live performances at PS1 MoMA, Coachella, various exhibitions, installations, and music video shoots. The artwork is comprised of a wide variety of materials and media: video stills turned to stencils pieced back together to make animated installations: spray-painted canvasses scanned then made into digital collages: photographs videotaped, then run through bad computer connections to create graphic prints: artwork on nails, walls, prints for T-shirts, handmade stage costumes—anything she could find while she was touring. Also included are assorted lyrics and portions of an exclusive interview in which she discusses candidly the personal events and themes which informed her art and music at the time of each campaign. Includes foreword by Steve Loveridge, friend since her art school days and frequent creative collaborator with M.I.A.

Der Kirchenrechtsprofessor nimmt Vernunft an, wird mit mir glücklich und stirbt (German Edition) eBook: Ursula Neumann

Oktober 1977: Der Kirchenrechtsprofessor Johannes Neumann schmeißt hin und gibt seine kirchliche Lehrerlaubnis zurück. Bis dahin hatte er an der Katholisch-Theologischen Fakultät der Universität Tübingen gelehrt, deren Rektor er 1972 war. Von seinen Kollegen wurde einer Papst (Joseph Ratzinger), einer Kardinal (Walter Kasper) und einem wurde von seiner Kirche der Stuhl vor die Tür gesetzt (Hans Küng) - allerdings erst, nachdem er nicht mehr dessen juristischer Berater war.
Er war einer der renommiertesten Vertreter "der Progressiven", bis kein Weg mehr an der Einsicht vorbeiführte: Der Kampf für eine menschenfreundliche Kirche ist zwecklos. Den Weg vom engagierten, aber immer kritischen katholischen Priester und Theologen zum Agnostiker und Kirchenkritiker zeichnet seine Frau nach. Die "gelernte Theologin" wurde Psychoanalytikerin. Die vollständig erhaltenen Briefe, Tagebücher, Dokumente jener Zeit geben ein authentisches Bild: ein Blick hinter die Kulissen und ein Blick in die Herzen. Es ist eine sehr persönlich und schonungslos ehrlich erzählte Geschichte von Liebe und Tod, Sex and Crime, Freundschaft und Intrige, Treue und Verrat. Sie zeigt, wie Angst, große Angst überwunden werden kann, überwunden worden ist.

Fam, Cairo University, Egypt <br /><br /> Soils are unique materials. Analogous to all other particulate materials, their properties depend on environmental parameters, such as confinement and fluid characteristics. While their behavior is complex, simple micromechanical analyses at the particle level provide unparalleled insight. Furthermore, elastic and electromagnetic waves can be effectively used to gain complementary information about the particulate medium, leading to unique possibilities for studies in engineering and science, including field applications for site assessment and process monitoring. <br /><br /> This book is divided into five parts. The first part dwells on the problem of scale and includes a general introduction to materials. In the second part, the behavior of particulate materials is reviewed, with emphasis on the microscale interpretation of macroscale behavior. Fundamental differences between fine and coarse particulate materials are highlighted. The third and fourth parts center on the propagation of mechanical and electromagnetic waves in particulate materials, addressing phenomena such as stiffness, polarization and losses. These two units include laboratory techniques to measure the elastic and electromagnetic spectral response of particulate materials, and an extensive compilation of experimental data. Finally, the fifth part applies elastic and electromagnetic waves to monitoring process in soils. <br /><br /> Emphasis is placed on clear, simple analyses and explanations of complex physical phenomena, making this book ideal for self–study. Furthermore, no other book provides such an in–depth description of soils and their behavior and the interaction of elastic and electromagnetic waves and particulate materials (including material data and experimental methods).

Show me a child who hasn't clapped their hands to keep Tinkerbell's fluttering heart from fading away or watched in delight as Disney's fairies flit across a woodland glade. But this pretty pastel world of gauzy winged things who grant wishes and make dreams come true is predated by a darker, denser world of gorgons, goblins and gellos: the ancient antecedents of Shakespeare's mischievous Puck or J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan. For, as Diana Purkiss explains in this engrossing history, ancient fairies were born of fear: fear of the dark, of death, and of the other great rites of passage, birth and sex. To understand the importance of these early fairies to pre-industrial peoples, we need to recover that sense of dread. "Troublesome Things" begins with the earliest manifestations of fairies in the ancient civilizations of the Mediterannean. The child-killing demons and nymphs of these cultures are the joint ancestors of the mediaeval fairies of nothern Europe, when fairy figures provided a bridge between the secular and the sacred. Fairies abducted babies and virgins, spirited away young men who were seduced by fairy queens and remained suspended in liminal states. Tamed by Shakespeare's view of the spirit world, Victorian fairies fluttered across the theatre stage and the pages of children's books to reappear a century later as detergent trade marks and alien abductors. Steeped in folklore and fantasy, "Troublesome Things" is a rich and diverse account of the part that fairies and fairy stories have played in culture and society. And in learning about these often strange and mysterious creatures, we learn something about ourselves too - our fears and our desires. For while few of us may actually believe that there are fairies at the bottom of our gardens, who can resist clapping their hands just in case?</div><em></em><p>Diane Purkiss was formerly Professor of English at Exeter University and is now Fellow and Tutor at Keeble College, Oxford. </p> </p> <p> <a href="" > Whatever You Do Don 39:t Smile: Pathways to Personal Growth </a> </p><p> Sorry, description is temporarily unavailable.<p>Who else wants to be happier?

Many cheers to Kathleen Shelby Boyett for her great job of research!”David W. MorganJohn Markham operated a mercantile business in Alexandria, Virginia from the 1680s through the early part of the eighteenth century. To fill his coffers, he traded back and forth with his native England for goods that the Colonies needed and vice-versa. He was said to be a daring, greedy rascal who did not mind hurting others to get what he wanted. Handsome and dashing, he was also popular with the ladies of the period. Then one day in March of 1683, he turned a corner in his privateering career, a turn that led him into outright piracy. Yet, there are those who say John Markham never existed. Who is telling the truth? Here for the first time, the traditional family stories are told and analyzed so as to get as close to the truth as is possible. Was Lewis Markham, respectable sheriff and associate of the Washington family, the father of Elizabeth Markham?

The Gratitude Journal (2nd Edition) by Natalie Fox was both beautiful and exciting, but it has also become much more than that for me.For a long time, I lived with a glass-half empty mindset. It was safer. It meant that rather than being disappointed, I was sometimes pleasantly surprised. It also meant that I trained my mind to look for the negative, rather than the positive in life.... .....So, how does the Gratitude Journal fit into this picture?Natalie Fox's meaningful creation has guided me to create a beautiful gratitude practice, where I sit down each day and write about some of the things I'm grateful to have in my life. This journal has taken the simple practice of writing down three things you're grateful for a big step further. Each day, you'll explore how you want to feel, what you're most grateful for, who you would like to thank, and more! And then, there are the fun and surprising gratitude practices sprinkled throughout the journal, such as finding meaningful gratitude quotes online and acknowledging why you love your body."Rachael Kable, Mindfulness Expert -"I have had a few months now of a life change .... had a heart attack and a stroke since September ...

There is so much negativity in the the news and the media, and it is easily to let that overcome your feelings of gratitude.

Even the Yogasutra itself is an "approach," a voice articulating an other-- a silent, beyond-speech yogin. Author Yohanan Grinshpon presents Patanjali as a Sankhya-philosopher, who interprets silence in accordance with his own dualist metaphysics and Buddhistic sensibilities. The Yogasutra represents an intellectual's conceptualization of utter otherness rather than the yogin's verbalization of silence. Silence Unheard focuses on the yogin's supra-normal experiences (siddhis) as well as on the classification of silences and the ultimate goal of disintegration through guna balance. The book provides a translation of the Yogasutra divided into two sections: an essential text, concerning the yoga practitioner, and a secondary text, concerning the philosopher. Grinshpon also surveys the encounters of intellectuals, scholars, seekers, devotees, and outsiders with the Yogasutra.</div><em></em><p>this concise but well documented and densely argued study sheds a new light on the Yogasutra and its commentaries, disclosing an unfamiliar and striking landscape to the reader. Indologica Taurinensia "This is a beautifully written book that breaks from the usual scholarly conventions in order to struggle deeply and honestly with the sheer 'otherness' of a classical Indian text, Patanjali's Yogasutra. Grinshpon does not 'look away' from the psychological realities of the text. He does not explain the difficulties away or try to tame the text through some socialized or moral assumption--he lets it stand as a symbol of silence and death and unconscious samadhi, all radically 'other' to any socialized reader. Nor does he artificially separate the text, censor it, or ignore it by halves: instead, he insists on its wholeness, on the integrity of the yogic universe, and on the impossibility of entering that universe through anything other than a great sacrifice." -- Jeffrey J.

This approach provides a unified theoretical and computational framework for the most commonly used statistical methods:regression, analysis of variance and covariance, logistic regression, log-linear models for contingency tables and several more specialized techniques. More advanced expositions of the subject are given by McCullagh and NeIder(1983) and Andersen (1980). The emphasis is on the use of statistical models to investigate substantive questions rather than to produce mathematical descriptions of the data. Therefore parameter estimation and hypothesistesting are stressed. I have assumed that the reader is familiar with the most commonly used statistical concepts and methods and has some basic knowledge of calculus and matrix algebra. Short numerical examples are used toillustrate the main points. In writing this book I have been helped greatly by the comments and criticism of my students and colleagues, especially Anne Young. However, the choice of material, and the obscurities and errorsare my responsibility and I apologize to the reader for any irritation caused by them.

In its first two decades of existence, the Congress failed to inspire sacrifices from its members or to attract Muslims or Indians without an English education. The author explains this early stagnation in terms of developments within the Congress as well as outside in Indian society. Originally published in 1978.

This second edition has an additional chapter written by the author's wife about what it is like to be in a relationship with someone with Asperger's Syndrome where she shares the positives, and the challenges.</p> <p>As a small child Dan knew he was different to other children, they would want to play football and interact with each other, he would want to crawl around searching for snails keeping himself to himself. Dan found his own coping strategies to manage his anxieties, discovering <i>meditation</i> as an eight year old, and <i>hypnosis</i> as a teenager.</p> <h2>A helpful and insightful read for parents of children with Asperger's</h2> <p>This book offers a rare insight into what it is like to live with Asperger's. Dan has a unique perspective: not only does he have Asperger's, but a large part of his professional life has been spent working with people with autism and their carers.</p><p>Through this book you will be taken into Dan's world, from birth to adulthood, through his experiences of the world around him, exploring what has been helpful, and what hasn't. Dan is open and honest about both the positive and negative aspects of himself, and shares how Asperger’s has impacted on all areas of his life & what he has done to address the challenges he faces.</p><p>Asperger's wasn't used as a diagnostic term until the mid-1990's, by which time Dan was leaving school and moving into the world of work. Until recent years Dan disliked diagnostic labels because of the way people would take the label and turn it into an identity which would dis-empower them. He also saw parents and carers do this with their children where they wouldn't address things, instead they would blame the label for undesirable aspects of their child's behaviours. What changed for Dan was his experience of being discriminated against. He realised that having a diagnosis may help him challenge the way he was being treated by giving him access to occupational health support. Following his diagnosis he started to reflect on his life and realised many things could have gone differently had he been diagnosed sooner.</p><p><i>"Having Asperger’s can be overwhelming. Every moment can be a sensory overload. I can be walking through a town centre and I will be hearing jarring sounds of machines, and cars, and the chaos of hundreds of different voices, and movement coming from everywhere, having to dodge people, constantly having to try to adapt to people stopping and starting, darting my attention from face to face, and to dogs people are walking, and to movement of signs, and flashes of sunlight off windows, and objects people are carrying. Normally my only escape is to go into my mind and shut out as much as possible. I have tried to convey this chaos and sensory assault through my writing."</i></p><h2>The magic of learning hypnosis</h2><p>The event which transformed Dan's life the most growing up was watching Paul McKenna on TV. This triggered a lifelong interest in hypnosis - the study of communication skills. Dan shares the impact hypnosis has had on his life and what it is that hypnosis has taught him.</p> <p>Dan wrote this book with the aim of giving hope to parents of those with Asperger's, and to those with Asperger's, and the two new chapters have been written to further help achieve this goal</p></div><em></em><p></p> </p> <p> <a href="" > A Biographical Sketch of the Life of the Late Captain Michael Cresap </a> </p><p> <div> A Biographical Sketch of the Life of the Late Captain Michael Cresap is an unchanged, high-quality reprint of the original edition of 1866.

On the day of the crime a disaster of epic proportion occurred in Northeastern Pennsylvania as the Susquehanna River plunged through the ceiling of the Knox Coal Mine, leading to the collapse of the region’s only major industry. Young Antonio flees his hometown before he learns of the disaster. While away he builds a new life for himself and gains a family in the process. When once again the river upends the lives of those living along its banks, it also calls Antonio back home to his people, only now as a respected and generous business owner. In serving his community, he seeks to restore the broken relationships of his past but finds only awkwardness and absurd conflict because he refuses to confess to the crime which drove him away.</p> <p>Like the flow of water, the events surrounding the generations of Antonio’s family are at once under their control and in control of them.

In the days following Antonio's death, his true legacy is revealed as his wife, his son, and his very clever grandchildren Tony and Olivia discover long forgotten secrets of what happened fifty years earlier on the day of the mine disaster.

This process of predicting the future is crucial to many aspects of the company - from next month's production schedule, to market estimates for drugs in the next decade. The pharmaceutical forecaster needs to strike a delicate balance between over-engineering the forecast - including rafts of data and complex ’black box’ equations that few stakeholders understand and even fewer buy into - and an overly simplistic approach that relies too heavily on anecdotal information and opinion.Arthur G. Cook's highly pragmatic guide explains the basis of a successful balanced forecast for products in development as well as currently marketed products. The author explores the pharmaceutical forecasting process: the varied tools and methods for new product and in-market forecasting: how they can be used to communicate market dynamics to the various stakeholders: and the strengths and weaknesses of different forecast approaches. The text is liberally illustrated with tables, diagrams and examples. The final extended case study provides the reader with an opportunity to test out their knowledge.The second edition has been updated throughout and includes a brand new chapter focusing on specialized topics such as forecasting for orphan drugs and biosimilars.</div><em></em><p>Arthur G.

This book offers distinct and credible reasons for believing in a relationship among the three men, who were "kinsmen" as their contemporaries understood the term.Klause uncovers signs of a secret but continued "conversation" among them about the religious politics of their time, reading the evidence for it, with plausible speculation, out of the literary and biographical remains of the conversants, and founding his argument securely on the discovery that Shakespeare's writing is influenced in a major way by Southwell's. The Jesuit's influence is pervasive, but most especially when the poet/playwright takes up in his own work issues of special concern to the earl in a crucial decade (1593-1604), after Southwell's death, through the religious and political crises faced by the young nobleman during that time.</div><em></em> </p> <p> <a href="" > Once Upon a Time - A Prince 39:s Fantastic Journey </a> </p><p> <div> In this book, a nice, but none too bright prince is sent out into the world by his father to prove that he is brave and smart, and to find a future queen.
