Tales of a Tiller Girl Part 1 of 3

A heart-warming nostalgia memoir from a member of the world famous dance troupe, The Tiller Girls. Based in London in the 1930s, 40s and 50s, Irene's story will transport readers back to a more innocent, simple way of life.

This is the story of a little girl who loved to dance. Growing up in London in the 1930s, dancing was so much more to Irene than just a hobby. It was her escape and it took her off into another world away from the harsh realities of life. A fairytale world away from the horrors of WW2, from the grief of losing her father and missing her mother who she didn't see for three years while she was drafted to help with the war effort. And far away from her cold-hearted grandparents who treated her like an inconvenience.

Finally it led to her winning a place as a Tiller Girl; the world's most famous dance troupe known for their 32-and-a-half high kicks a minute and precise, symmetrical routines. For four years she opened and closed the show at the prestigious London Palladium and performed on stage alongside huge stars such as Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Judy Garland.

It was a strange mixture of glamour and bloody hard work but it was certainly never dull. And being a Tiller Girl also gave Irene the opportunity to see firsthand the devastating effects of WW2, both here and abroad.

Heart-warming, enlightening and wonderfully uplifting, Irene's evocative story will transport readers back to a time when every town and holiday resort had several theatres and when dance troupes like The Tiller Girls were the epitome of glitz and glamour.

Billionaire Baby Secret Book One: A Curvy, Secret Pregnancy Romance

His eyes tell me every last, dirty detail of what he'll to do to me.

It was supposed to just be karaoke for my birthday. But the way that sexy stranger at the bar is looking at me, I'm afraid I'll be singing twice tonight - first on stage. And then in his bedroom.

Maybe it's his gorgeous English accent. Or those sizzling eyes that undress me right here in the bar. Well, my good-for-nothing cheating boyfriend has just broken up with me, so I'm going to let the stranger buy me a drink.

Not that I'd be brave enough to actually follow through. I'm not the type of girl that just goes out and sleeps around. Even when those lips make me tremble. Even when all I want to do is rip that million dollar suit off his smoking hot body and take him right here in the bar.

He shouldn't be interested in a girl like me. Guys don't go for curvy and intelligent - or at least, that's what my ex-boyfriend kept telling me.

But that stranger - he keeps looking at me like like I'm the only one in the room. I don't know what to do - I mean, how long do you have to wait after you've broken up with somebody?

And what happens if my ex-boyfriend wants me back?

Warning: Billionaire Baby Secret Book 1 is a short, steamy romance so hot it will have you fanning yourself (and looking for your closest karaoke bar). It contains smoking hot action between a curvy BBW and a gorgeous Billionaire, and includes sizzling scenes which are for adults only.

This is the first book in the Billionaire Baby Secret Series by Nikki Steele, the mistress of billionaire romance sagas.

The charming natural landscapes: of the Austrian artist Alois Arnegger

Alois Arnegger - Austrian landscape painter, master of everyday genre, portraitist. He was born in Vienna and studied art at the Academy of Fine Arts there in the Vienna Academy of Arts from R. Ras and A. Aizenmenger, from 1916 - a member of the Vienna Academy, as well as the society of Albrecht Durer. He made an educational trip to Austria and the Swiss Alps.

At the beginning of his career, Arnegger focused on the image of Austrian scenes. He became known as a landscape painter. In the 1920s Arnegger visited Italy and was fascinated by its coastal views. Since then he has painted bright and colorful views of Capri, Lake Como and Naples. However, later Arnegger returned to Austria, where he returned to painting alpine landscapes with dramatic lighting.

Alpine villages in bloom, dense centuries-old forests, rushing mountain rivers. It seems that everyone draws the foothills of the Alps just like that, but Alois Arnegger has got completely alive pictures. Without any pink shepherdesses and glamorous cowherd boys. Therefore, the paintings are simply interesting to watch - there is no sense of the artificiality of plots. His son Gottfried Arnegger was also an artist.

Alois Arnegger died in Vienna in 1963.

He describes why he can never be scripted, remembers some of his famous putdowns in the boardroom and cringes at a lead balloon moment.

Best of Both Worlds: Museums, Libraries, and Archives in the Digital Age

Wayne Clough, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, asks "How can we prepare ourselves to reach the generation of digital natives who bring a huge appetite--and aptitude--for the digital world?" He explains how the Smithsonian is tackling this issue in Best of Both Worlds: Museums, Libraries, and Archives in a Digital Age.

Libraries and archives have already made many documents available through the Internet. The digital world presents a bigger challenge for museums; producing images of 3D objects is more complicated, and collections are built with exhibitions in mind rather than open access on computers.

In 2009, the Smithsonian began digitizing its vast collections to make them accessible to the millions of people who do not visit the museums in person. "Digital access can provide limitless opportunities for engagement and lifelong learning." Clough sees museums gradually moving beyond showcasing collections to engaging the public online so "visitors" can access the objects they find most interesting.

Education has always been at the core of the Smithsonian. Today, the Smithsonian offers materials and lesson plans that meet state standards for K-12 curricula; online summits on many diverse subjects; the Collections Search Center website; and apps. The Smithsonian's website, www.seriouslyamazing.com, draws people in with fun questions and then takes them deeper into the subject. The question "What European colonizer is still invading the U.S. today?" reveals not only the answer--earthworms--but also in-depth info on worms from environmental researchers.

Clough concludes with this thought: "While digital technology poses great challenges, it also offers great possibilities."

Travels In Arizona - Sedona Revisited

Approximately 67 pages with about 64 color photographs. This work is ENTIRELY pictorial.

Sedona, also called 'Red Rock Country' after the distinctive red sandstone permeating the region. The rock was formed in the Permian geological period approximately 250 to 300 million years ago and has been a favorite location for photographers for decades. Early morning and late evening are ideal times for photography as the morning and evening sunlight make the rocks appear to glow a brilliant red.

The town has become a favorite tourist destination with a large number of hotels, resorts, and four-wheel drive tours able to accommodate considerable numbers. For Arizona the average temperature is considered moderate as the town's elevation is approximately 4,500 feet allowing for moderate winters and summers.

The author began photography and photo-journalism in early 1963 when he accepted an offer from his local newspaper to write about and photograph sports events at the Arizona high school where he was a junior. After a stint in the service, he had an opportunity to study photography and printing techniques with Bernard Hoffman, a true gentleman and scholar, and one of the earliest staff photographers for Life Magazine.

Since that time he has had thousands of photographs and hundreds of articles published by more than 60 national and international periodicals. He was also a contributing editor for one of them for more than ten years. Topics ran the gamut from professional sports, medicine, archeology, and photography to science.

After twenty years away from Arizona he returned in 1985 and it has been the base from which all his photographic excursions are launched. Along with many others he has embraced digital photography but can still be seen, from time to time, peering through the ground glass of a large format camera, hoisting a large medium format 6x7, or indeed still using a 35mm film camera.

The photographer currently has fine art photography on exhibit at The Center for Fine Arts in Globe, Arizona, and is currently represented by more than ten stock photo agencies where he has more than 13,000 photographs available for commercial use.

So Lonesome: Hank Williams and the Creation of Country Music (Chicago Shorts)



Hank Williams (1923-53) was an American singer-songwriter and musician regarded as the most important country music artist of all time, creator of an unforgettable sound and persona that helped to define the genre from its infancy and beyond. Though unable to read or notate music to any substantive degree, Williams recorded 11 number one hits between 1948 and 1953, which carried him to music's mainstream and left an enduring legacy. In So Lonesome, Richard A. Peterson captures the free-wheeling entrepreneurial spirit of an era gone by, when the Grand Ole Opry put Nashville's star on the map, while detailing how Williams came to fame and helped launch country music both during his life and after his death. More than just a history of the music and one of its most celebrated performers, So Lonesome explores what it means to live an authentic life within the confines of marketing popular culture.

French neo-impressionist Henri Cross: 120+ best masterpieces of the painter (Impressionism Book 13)

Henri Edmond Cross (Delacroix) is a French artist, one of the largest representatives of neo-impressionism. Born in 1856 in the town of Douai, located in the north of France. In 1865 the family moved to the city of Lille. The artist's talent was manifested early in the boy, and his father's cousin financed his training in drawing and painting from the artist Carolus-Durant. In 1875 Henri came to Paris and for some time studied at the Higher National School of Fine Arts. In 1878 he entered the Lille School of Design and Architecture and studied for three years under the guidance of professor of painting Alfons Cola. In 1881 Henri Delacroix returned to Paris and exhibited his paintings in the Salon. In order that he was not confused with Eugene Delacroix, he chose the pseudonym Cross.

The artist's early works - portraits and still lifes, were executed in a realistic manner with a predominance of dark colors. In 1883, Kross met with Claude Monet and Paul Signac, who had a great influence on the creative manner of the artist. In May 1884 Henri Cross took part in the first exhibition of Independent Artists, which in late June of the same year created the Society of Independent Artists. In 1891 Cross was elected his vice-president. By the time he became one of the leading artists of neo-impressionism. His canvases were bright, full of light and attracted attention by pictures. The first personal exhibition of Henri Edmond Cross was held in 1894 in the Paris gallery of Eugene Drueta, which featured 30 paintings and 30 watercolors of the painter. In 1896 the artist held his exhibitions in the galleries of Bing and Durand-Ruel, and later participated in the exhibitions of the "Secession" in Berlin and Dresden.

May 16, 1910 Henri Edmond Cross (Delacroix) died at the age of 55 in Saint Clair, where he was buried.

The name of this artist is mentioned in rows with the names of such grandees of painting as Georges Cera, Paul Signac. It can not be said that Cross paintings constantly participate in major auctions, and his name attracts a large number of buyers, but, for example, his painting "Vendanges" in 2005 was sold for almost 3 million pounds ($5,410,909).

Designing Worlds: National Design Histories in an Age of Globalization (Making Sense of History)



From consumer products to architecture to advertising to digital technology, design is an undeniably global phenomenon. Yet despite their professed transnational perspective, historical studies of design have all too often succumbed to a bias toward Western, industrialized nations. This diverse but rigorously curated collection recalibrates our understanding of design history, reassessing regional and national cultures while situating them within an international context. Here, contributors from five continents offer nuanced studies that range from South Africa to the Czech Republic, all the while sensitive to the complexities of local variation and the role of nation-states in identity construction.

Renewing City Renewal: A call for strong design

Between 1970 and 1990 the prewar districts of Dutch cities underwent an unparalleled process of renewal. What began as 'building for the neighbourhood' in protest against extensive demolition has now come to be known as 'city renewal'. Large numbers of affordable dwellings and social facilities were created. However, businesses often disappeared, the quality of public space did not always improve and districts sometimes became isolated from the rest of the city. Since 1990 some of the old city renewal districts have taken off again and become popular (and expensive) housing districts. But others still have problems despite the renewal.

The design studies in this book show how economic activity, infrastructure and public space can be the keys to new strategies for improving city districts. Four 'problem districts' have been chosen as testing grounds: Leiden's Havenkwartier, The Hague's Schilderswijk, Rotterdam's Feijenoord and Amsterdam's Indische Buurt. Three essays describe the history of city renewal, the future of urban renewal and the role of spatial design in changing the existing city. The book ends with a call for meaningful new roles and instruments for architects and urban designers at a time when large-scale urban development has come to a standstill.

It's Alive!: The Science of B-Movie Monsters (Chicago Shorts)



The B-movie monster--be it gap-toothed gorilla, ripped-from-time dinosaur, overstretched arachnid, or another outrageous anthropomorphic fantasy--has thrilled moviegoers for decades, and firmly sunk its claws into popular culture. In It's Alive!, Michael LaBarbera delves into the science behind these characters' construction, from the biology surrounding tyrannosaurid postures in Jurassic Park and King Kong to the questionable physics employed by The Incredible Shrinking Man. Accompanied by a treasure trove of images from old movie posters and stills, and ranging from the 1930s to such recent films as The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the latest installments of the Alien franchise, It's Alive! cleverly uses science to remind us that the best parts of moviemaking might indeed be magic-for all creatures, great and small.

It traces the path from his earlier years drawing and painting birds, then changing his tools and medium to reach where he is today as a carver.

Terry briefly covers the evolution he went through with variations in the design of his unique "Naturebox" before specialising in the product that he crafts nowadays. He includes a short, but nevertheless, easy to follow "work in progress" piece which details the process of carving birds from wood.

If you are an experienced wildlife wood carver already or have always hankered over picking up some sharp instruments, Terry's book will inspire you. It's a great hobby to have.

A Little History of Photography Criticism; or, Why Do Photography Critics Hate Photography? (Chicago Shorts)

In A Short History of Photography Criticism; or, Why Do Photography Critics Hate Photography?, Susie Linfield contends that by looking at images of political violence and learning to see the people in them, we engage in an ethically and politically necessary act that connects us to our modern history of violence. For many years, Linfield's acute analysis of photographs--from events as wide-ranging as the Holocaust, the Chinese Cultural Revolution, and recent acts of terrorism--has explored a complex connection between the practices of photojournalism and the rise of human rights ideals. By asking how photography should respond to the darker shadows of modern life, Linfield insists on the continuing moral relevance of photojournalism, while urging us not to avert our eyes from what James Agee once labeled "the cruel radiance of what is."

King In the Mirror: The Reflection of Michael Jackson Vol.1

Born into an impoverished large family in Gary, Indiana, a boy was to become the youngest singer to have a #1 hit in the United States as a member of The Jackson 5 and the first to inscribe his name in music history. Later, he made Thriller, the highest selling album on the planet. His music crossed all borders, achieving many unprecedented feats one after the other. This book is a fictionalized true story, a type of self-help book, and aims to discover truths about our own life from that of the legendary King of Pop, Michael Jackson. This work is the first half of a book originally published by PHP Institute in Japan in 2010 and rewritten for English readers in 2012.

Ebert's Bests (Chicago Shorts)

Roger Ebert is a name synonymous with the movies. In Ebert's Bests, he takes readers through the journey of how he became a film critic, from his days at a student-run cinema club to his rise as a television commentator in At the Movies and Siskel & Ebert. Recounting the influence of the French New Wave, his friendships with Werner Herzog and Martin Scorsese, as well as travels to Sweden and Rome to visit Ingrid Bergman and Federico Fellini, Ebert never loses sight of film as a key component of our cultural identity. In considering the ethics of film criticism--why we should take all film seriously, without prejudgment or condescension--he argues that film critics ought always to engage in open-minded dialogue with a movie. Extending this to his accompanying selection of "10 Bests," he reminds us that hearts and minds--and even rankings--are bound to change.

Strategic investment of embodied energy during the architectural planning process

This year's fifth issue of A+BE outlines the relevance of the building substance as factor for the overall sustainable performance of the built environment. It wants to sensibilize the designer for the ecological dimension of planning decisions and to show how to optimize them. Design and construction of buildings include harvesting resources and producing emissions and stating a burden to nature. This can be perceived equivalent to a financial investment where the monetary value has to express adequately the real one. The planning decision has an ecological value which must justify its relevance by function and has to be optimized within its scope. Environmental impact and desired building quality must be alanced in order to establish a sustainable solution. All means to optimize need to be evaluated. In order to do so the designer needs to be aware of his impact and has to strategically invest embodied energy during the architectural planning process.

Transformations of Urbanising Delta Landscape: An Historic Examination of Dealing with the Impacts of Climate Change for the Kaoping River Delta in Taiwan

This book argues that the floods following extreme precipitation result not only from very heavy rainfall but also from the significant impact of human activities on natural water systems. While most literature emphasises that the increasing magnitude of storm rainfall extends beyond the original protection standards of hydrologic facilities in highly populated delta cities. Based on the knowledge of urban morphology, this study analyses how human systems have affected the transformation of natural water processes in the Kaoping River Delta. The relationship between human environments and natural landscape is illustrated via a 3-layer analytical framework which consists of a natural landscape layer, an infrastructure layer and an occupation layer. This layer-based approach views landscapes as a whole system in which each element interacts with the others.

Magic of Colors

Inspiration for this book was the Colombian fashion designer Adriana Santacruz, who was chosen to be Colombian fashion Ambassadeur and is representing her country at the Paris Fashion Week 2014.

Her thoughts and philosophy of creation of the new design and preservation of good old traditions, followed by the photos of D.A.Stauer wearing Adriana Santacruz Pret-a-porter and haute-couture collection garments at Design Week events and performances, appear in the special chapters of the book "Magic of Colors & the Visual Art of Adriana Santacruz".

Nixon and the Silver Screen (Chicago Shorts)

Richard Nixon and the film industry arrived in Southern California in the same year, 1913. In Nixon and the Silver Screen, Mark Feeney offers a new and often revelatory way of thinking about one of our most controversial presidents: by looking not just at Nixon's career--but Hollywood's. Nixon viewed more movies while in office than any other president, and Feeney argues that Nixon's story, both in politics and in his personal life, is nothing if not quintessentially American. Bearing in mind the events that shaped his presidency from 1969 to 1974, Feeney sees aspects of Nixon's character--and the nation's--refracted and reimagined in the more than 500 films Nixon watched during his tenure in the White House. The verdict? Nixon's legacy, for better or worse, is forever representative of the "Silver Age" in Hollywood, shaping and being shaped by that flickering silver screen.

Painting China Now: Artists' Book: Painting China Now (MAM - Museum of Modern Art – Rio de Janeiro – Brasil) by Brody & Paetau

This is an "artists' eBook" made in parallel to the exhibition of Ondrej Brody & Kristofer Paetau at the MAM - Museum of Modern Art - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This eBook is not an exhibition catalogue - it is an independent work: a collaboration between the artists and the curator of the exhibition, Luiz Camillo Osorio who wrote the text of this book to accompany details of the 30 paintings commissioned in China by Ondrej Brody & Kristofer Paetau (an installation of 30 paintings in oil on canvas - 30 x 40 cm - which can be presented in different ways, according to the space). At the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro, the installation was accompanied by the text of the curator and formed a layout.

Are You Just Braaaiiinnnsss or Something More?: A Pre-release Sample Chapter from The Walking Dead and Philosophy: v. 1

In Are You Just Braaaiiinnnsss or Something More?, British Columbia-based philosopher Gordon Hawkes compares the zombies of The Walking Dead with the zombies philosophers argue about. Debate about whether zombies could possibly exist has been a hot topic in philosophy of mind over the last thirty years, though as Hawkes points out, these are not quite the same as the walkers in Robert Kirkman's epic tale. Philosophical zombies, or P-zombies for short, are beings who look and behave exactly like humans but have no inner mental life?no consciousness. Philosophers have lined up on both sides of this disputed proposition, and no agreement is yet in sight. A related question is how much consciousness is possessed by the walkers of The Walking Dead, and whether these shambling walkers are entitled to any moral consideration. Hawkes's piece is one of twenty chapters in The Walking Dead and Philosophy, edited by Wayne Yuen, in which philosophers draw fascinating and disturbing conclusions from The Walking Dead comics and TV show. The Walking Dead and Philosophy explores not only the nature of zombies, but the nature of human society as revealed by the impact of a zombie apocalypse.

Blood Sex & Scooby Snacks

HORROR MOVIE OR SCOOBY DOO CARTOON?

When the main characters are The Hero/Leader, The Damsel In Distress, The Nerd and The Stoner, it's hard to tell the difference.

From the author of Midnight Movie Madness comes everything you ever wanted to know (but were too afraid to ask) about Scooby's influence on modern horror films. Which Slasher Movie was written by Joseph Barbera's son? Which Wes Craven film has the same ending as an episode of A Pup Named Scooby Doo? And how do you take Freddy Vs Jason's Sheriff seriously when he was also in Scooby Doo The Mystery Begins?

So come on get involved until the mystery is solved, and hang around for a few words from Michael Bay (not the filmmaker, the fast food employee).

The White Slave

The young filmmaker Rene Daalder and the architecture student Rem Koolhaas wrote the screenplay to Daalder's 1969 film De blanke slavin (The White Slave) in 1967/68. Taking inspiration from B-movies and Luis Bunuel, it is a hall of mirrors that toys with cliches and inverts them into campy provocations. A few years after the Eichmann trial, a man named Gunther Unrat arrives in the Netherlands looking for "good Germans" who helped fight the Nazi occupation. He quickly gets mixed up in a nefarious organization that inspires him to follow in the footsteps of the consummate "good German" Albert Schweitzer by setting up a camp for young Dutch women who think they are training to work in Africa as nurses. Blinded by idealism, he fails to see that his shady partners are scheming to sell them into sexual slavery. The screenplay soon develops into an absurd morality play, challenging all notions of political correctness, then and now. It has been translated from the Dutch by Laura Martz, while Rene Daalder has contributed a preface about the origins and background of the film.

Spiral Jetta Summer: Swimming in the Great Salt Lake (Chicago Shorts)



Erin Hogan hit the road in her Volkswagen Jetta and headed west from Chicago in search of the monuments of American land art: a salty coil of rocks, four hundred stainless steel poles, a gash in a mesa, four concrete tubes, and military sheds filled with cubes. Her completed journey took her through the states of Utah, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas. It also took her through the states of anxiety, drunkenness, disorientation, and heat exhaustion. Spiral Jetta Summer is a chronicle of this adventure, and it reveals Hogan's unpretentious and boisterous narrative flair on the roads of middle-of-nowhere Utah in pursuit of Robert Smithson's classic work Spiral Jetty. Along the way, Hogan writes about venturing outside of her urban comfort zone; who she encounters; and most importantly, how she found most of what she was looking for and then some.

Reception of music in cross-cultural perspective

Music is created to be performed, in most cases for an audience, whether in a concert hall, at a street fair or through a radio. But how those listeners receive a piece or style of music influences future music production. This unit explores how audience reception, changing social situations and technology impact musical performance.

Hour Glass

Hayden and Persephone Caulwell have been married for twenty-two years. Constantly referred to as "the perfect couple," they have found themselves hiding the discord in their marriage from their family and friends. After a dinner party, they engage in a volatile confrontation and years of affairs, secrets, and emotions begin to surface. Realizing their marriage has ended, husband and wife lash out at each other until the dining room - and their lives - are left in shards. This one-act play was inspired equally by the short story 'Bliss' by Katherine Mansfield and the Greek myth of Persephone.

'We Never Made it to Paris' is a creative fusion of language, music, movement, dance, photography, and light. The story spans over the course of eighteen years in the lives of two men: Eros, a former model, and Bird, a former actor.

Synopsis on Da Vinci’s ‘31’ re: Dresden Codex

Does the 'Dresden Codex' contain secrets in its artwork? Yes. This peculiar astronomy manual regarding Venus, with its colorful caricatures of warriors mutating into dragons and trees (while mixing alchemical potions and traveling on journeys), had contained secrets that delight and stump the very elite of the world's craftiest codebreakers.

This picture-based book is a synopsis of evidence that we have amassed in regard to the meaning of a number '31' that we had found hidden in Leonardo Da Vinci's work. With that number in hand, we explore the secrets of the Transformation Process of turning Mercury to Gold inside of the Philosophers' Stone alchemy texts through their rebus picture words. We then search for parallel evidence within the 'Dresden Codex.' This book examines how the hidden number '31' is embedded in not only the 'Dresden Codex,' but is widespread in science and geometry. Had there really been rebus picture word puzzles pointing to the number '31' in the artwork of the 'Dresden Codex'? Step aboard the enchanted mystery ship for a journey through the basics of the 'Dresden Codex'--a famous Maya writing which no one has ever been able to fully crack. The author provides a tight evidentiary argument for the 'Dresden Codex' being a version of the Philosophers' Stone genre of texts. Utilizing an extravaganza of vibrant illustrations from history's most eminent artists, this book first highlights the fine points of the 'Dresden Codex's fundamentals and then moves on to acquaint the readers with the history and overall canons of the Philosophers' Stone. The readers embark upon a tour through widely varying perspectives on the 'Dresden Codex'--as a fine example of Mesoamerican art. Readers will then learn the intricacies of the Art of alchemy, but what is even more important--by carefully piecing together the scattered clues, they will be brought nearer to the closely guarded message hidden deep inside the deliberately obscured texts. There is a message hidden in the picture word puzzles. Only this author exposes the true intent of the ancient alchemists, fishing out the actual concealed message from the muddy pond of hints and innuendo. The Art had been used for a very specific purpose--and readers are guaranteed to be surprised with the deciphered end result. This book is a fast paced thriller that decrypts real clues in the artwork and riddles of the Masters. Upending the apple cart on what should be found within the alchemy riddles, the author has ferreted the secret message out from the picture word puzzles. The message isn't what anyone expected. In effect, the end result creates a paradigm shift on how these ancient works should be considered. Surprisingly, there had been hidden secrets pointing to the '31' in the artwork of the 'Dresden Codex.'

Isolation Is Overrated - 8 Steps to Stress-Free Living With Roommates

Ask anyone that's ever lived with roommates if they have any horror stories, and they'll likely have their fair share.

We've all got a horror story or two - from moving in with friends or relatives, to sharing an apartment with people that started out as complete strangers, there always seemed to be some level of craziness that we found ourselves living with at one point or another.

The main reason why I wrote this eBook is because I know that a great many of the bad experiences people have had while living with roommates could have easily been avoided had they just done some things a little differently. Just in the small ways we interact (or don't interact) with the people we live with can, many times, be the very root of all those roommate horror stories we've come away with.

So like most bad experiences in life, we can learn new ways and ideas on how to deal with them or even prevent them from happening again. That's what we're going to do here.

Abstract Coloring Book

Actors and the Art of Performance: Under Exposure (Performance Philosophy)

Actors and the Art of Performance: Under Exposure combines the author's two main biographical paths: her professional commitment to the fi elds of both theater and philosophy. The art of acting on stage is analyzed here not only from the theoretical perspective of a spectator but also from the perspective of the actor. The author draws on her experience as both a theater actor and a university professor whose teachings in the art of acting rely heavily on her own experience and also on her philosophical knowledge. The book is unique not only in terms of its content but also in terms of its style. Written in a multiplicity of voices, the text oscillates between philosophical reasoning and narrative forms of writing, including micronarratives, fables, parables, and inter alia by Carroll, Hoff mann, and Kleist. Hence the book claims that a transdisciplinary dialogue between the art of acting and the art of philosophical thinking calls for an aesthetic study that questions and begins to seek alternatives to traditionally established and ingrained formats of philosophy.

A Galileo Forgery (Galileo's O)

In this work, historians in various fields revise the results presented in the first two volumes of the series, which analyzed the New York copy of Sidereus Nuncius. While many of their findings remain valid, the subject of analysis proved to be a forgery. Volume III describes how the discovery of forgery was made - a watershed moment in the continuing struggle between forgers and those who seek to apprehend them.

The Symbolic Order: A Contemporary Reader On The Arts Debate (Falmer Press Library on Aesthetic Education)

Alongside "Living Powers" and "A is for Aesthetic" this book is intended to establish a conceptual frame for the Arts in Education series. The first and primary aim of this symposium is to put teachers of all the arts in touch with some of the most recent and the best writing on the nature of art by art-makers, educationalists and seminal critics. This in itself is to foster generative conceptions and to promote a sense of connection between the arts. Such an intellectual forum is vital, particularly at the present time when, with the waning of Modernism, there is a real need for new formulations, more comprehensive critiques, a greater awareness of the plurality of artistic conventions and, hence, of expressive possibilities. Each essay both stands alone and belongs to a structured sequential argument uniting the collection.

Migration in the Southern Balkans: From Ottoman Territory to Globalized Nation States (IMISCOE Research Series)

This volume collects ten essays that look at intra-regional migration in the Southern Balkans from the late Ottoman period to the present. It examines forced as well as voluntary migrations and places these movements within their historical context, including ethnic cleansing, population exchanges, and demographic engineering in the service of nation-building as well as more recent labor migration due to globalization. Inside, readers will find the work of international experts that cuts across national and disciplinary lines. This cross-cultural, comparative approach fully captures the complexity of this highly fractured, yet interconnected, region. Coverage explores the role of population exchanges in the process of nation-building and irredentist policies in interwar Bulgaria, the story of Thracian refugees and their organizations in Bulgaria, the changing waves of migration from the Balkans to Turkey, Albanian immigrants in Greece, and the diminished importance of ethnic migration after the 1990s. In addition, the collection looks at such under-researched aspects of migration as memory, gender, and religion. The field of migration studies in the Southern Balkans is still fragmented along national and disciplinary lines. Moreover, the study of forced and voluntary migrations is often separate with few interconnections. The essays collected in this book bring these different traditions together. This complete portrait will help readers gain deep insight and better understanding into the diverse migration flows and intercultural exchanges that have occurred in the Southern Balkans in the last two centuries.
