What would you do if you only had only thirty days to live? What if that time was shortened to twenty-four hours—or even one hour? You can’t control the amount of time you have left, but you can control how you spend that time. Timothy J. Brill, a pilot, philosopher, and adventure seeker, examines the nature of existence and humanity in a series of essays, considering how you can prevent fear from dominating your life, avoid being a victim by seeking answers, recognize the detrimental nature of feelings of entitlement, and stand up for what is right. We live in a world of increasing isolation, self-delusion and hatred, where any moral voice is labeled as a freak. We only live an illusion of freedom, and we need a new worldview that promotes the dignity of every person and all of creation. Join Tim as he explores how to create this new worldview with a spirit of charity, love, and, most importantly, a whole new attitude.

The Moving Universe is designed for the student of astrology, and is the only book on transits that deals with both the mundane and spiritual interpretations. It is as much a spiritual teaching as it is an astrology book. The mundane (worldly) interpretation shows what is likely happening in the outer life. The spiritual perspective gives the interior lessons and challenges that the transits are bringing. Understanding these issues gives the student a deeper perspective on what’s going on in the client’s (or their own) life. Many students of astrology are on a spiritual path, and understanding the spiritual perspective will help them.

The future belongs to a different kind of person with a different kind of mind: artists, inventors, storytellers-creative and holistic "right-brain" thinkers whose abilities mark the fault line between who gets ahead and who doesn't. Drawing on research from around the world, Pink (author of To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Motivating Others) outlines the six fundamentally human abilities that are absolute essentials for professional success and personal fulfillment--and reveals how to master them. A Whole New Mind takes readers to a daring new place, and a provocative and necessary new way of thinking about a future that's already here.

John Blackwell’s insights into transformation and togetherness will help you find your way into an astounding new world. What would it mean for me to live in a new way—with a new outlook, with completely new methods? What would this mean for my relationships? What would this mean for the ways in which I conduct myself? What manners would I change? What kinds of things would I stop saying? What kinds of things would I begin to say? Mark’s Gospel brings us right into the mystery of what it means to live as a member of God’s family. He raises the most important questions for us to ponder: What would it mean to be willing to lose my life and to take up my cross? How might I go about implementing this vision? The Gospel of Mark, the second book in the A Whole New World series, leads us into the heart of a whole new world of insight and transformation—right where we are. “This book was ministry, a gift, and a soul-tugging read. I challenge you to read this book and become spiritually transformed.” —Kyra Phillips, CNN anchor

In her bestselling autobiography Bedsit Disco Queen, Tracey Thorn recalled the highs and lows of a thirty-year career in pop music. But with the touring, recording and extraordinary anecdotes, there wasn't time for an in-depth look at what she actually did for all those years: sing. She sang with warmth and emotional honesty, sometimes while battling acute stage-fright. Part memoir, part wide-ranging exploration of the art, mechanics and spellbinding power of singing, NAKED AT THE ALBERT HALL takes in Dusty Springfield, Dennis Potter and George Eliot; Auto-tune, the microphone and stage presence; The Streets and The X Factor. Including interviews with fellow artists such as Alison Moyet, Romy Madley-Croft and Green Gartside of Scritti Politti, and portraits of singers in fiction as well as Tracey's real-life experiences, it offers a unique, witty and sharply observed insider's perspective on the exhilarating joy and occasional heartache of singing.

I got the idea to write this biography of my husband about 1 year after he died. I was awake in the middle of the night and the idea came to me out of the blue. I knew immediately that I wanted to tell others what a wonderful person I had the privilege to be married to for 40 years and how his illness and death affected our lives. Since he had become ill, I was with him and able to use my nursing skills from far back when i was in training at Charity Hospital School of Nursing. It was difficult but I was so glad that I could take care of him and not depend on others. I was well qualified as an RN to meet his needs and I did it with caring and love. I am a native Louisianan and have lived in a small rural town called Gramercy for all of my life. I love music and am an accomplished pianist, vocalist and songwriter., I have been active also in community theater and have had several lead roles, the best of which I think was Dolly Levi, in the title production of "Hello Dolly" I am also the choir director at my church and am the cantor and sometimes also the organist. Music holds a special place in my heart as it can express feelings that sometimes are unable to be spoken. In fact, I sang at my parents' funeral, and at Ray's funeral. It was my way to give closure to some of my grief. I plan to retire from nursing after 45 years and hope to be able to spend more time with my grandchildren, whom I love dearly, my daughter who lives with me and my two canine companions, Zoe, a 10 year old Maltipoo and Honeybunn, a 4 year old Bichon Frise. An added note about this book is that some of the proceeds will go to Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center in Baton Rouge, La. where my mother and husband were patients and where I am now a patient.

Unfortunately, Mom's idea of the perfect summer holiday is different from mine. This summer, a beach holiday isn't on the cards, and Greg's mom's vision of 'family togetherness' really doesn't sound a whole lot of fun.

Armed with cheap digital technologies and a fiercely independent spirit, millions of young people from around the world have taken cultural production into their own hands, crafting their own clothing lines, launching their own record labels, and forging a vast, collaborative network of impassioned amateurs more interested in making than consuming. DIY Style tells the story of this international do-it-yourself (DIY) movement through a major case study of one of its biggest, but least known contingents: the "indie" music and fashion scene of the predominantly Muslim Southeast Asian island nation of Indonesia. Through rich ethnographic detail, in-depth historical analysis, and cutting-edge social theory, the book chronicles the rise of DIY culture in Indonesia, and also explores the phenomenon in Europe and the United States, painting an evocative portrait of vibrant communities who are not only making and distributing popular culture on their own terms, but working to tear down the barriers between production and consumption, third and first world, global and local. What emerges from the book is a cautiously optimistic view of the future of global capitalism - a creative, collectivist alternative built from the ground up. This exciting and original study is essential reading for students and scholars of anthropology, fashion, media studies, cultural studies and sociology.

"Play ball!" yelled the umpires as the teams of the AAGPBL took the field in the tense, war-torn days of 1943. Like all professional baseball players, these athletes scrambled to their positions, tossed balls across diamonds, and filled the air with chatter. But there was something different about them--they all wore skirts, went to charm school, and continually had to answer one question: "What is a woman doing playing baseball?" What were they doing? Having a great time, playing top-notch ball, and showing that a woman's place was at home only when she was at bat, behind the plate, or scoring a run. For twelve seasons, from 1943 to 1954, some of America's best female athletes earned their livings by playing baseball. This is their story in their own words, a tale of no-hitters and chaperones, stolen bases and practical jokes, home runs and run-ins with fans. Life in the league, however, was not all fun. Born out of a wartime "manpower" shortage, the AAGPBL ended with the growth of television and the ideal of the suburban home. Here, too, is the story of America's changing attitudes toward men and women and the roles we expect each to play. Author Sue Macy spent eleven years tracking down the women of the AAGPBL, interviewing them, and looking at their scrapbooks. Along the way she found that their odyssey did not end with the collapse of the league. The same courage and spunk the players displayed on the field led them to get back in touch with each other in the 1980s, to remind the world of what they had achieved, and to take their rightful places in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Balancing the voices of the women of the league with a lively, insightful overview of the changing patterns of American life, A Whole New Ball Game is a sports story full of telling insights about who we expect to be at home and how women can get back to first base.

Adventure and experiences through which the reader can get an idea of how life in the open and on the move can get into ones psyche to the point that wondering becomes solace to a wayward spirit. Some experiences in life we pursue and acquire, others just come along and happen to us when we put ourselves in their paths. Either way experiences and adventures are elements in life that give substance to our memories. We may not be able to experience all we wish, but we can, visit some experiences lived by others. You, reader may not be able to wander in the fi rst person but here you can sit back and do some arm-chair wandering and have a look at some other tid-bits of life. Also you may get a little look into what can happen sometimes when one just casts his way into the winds of chance. Meynardie
