Download or read book The Hopewell Journey written by Kathleen Van Nuys and published by AuthorHouse. This book was released on 2006 with total page 684 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Relationships can be mind boggling difficult for the intellect to comprehend. Why does love have to hurt? Why can't we seem to choose a mate that best suits our innermost desires, needs, and longings? Well, if we listen to Spirit perhaps love stands a chance. If we apply spiritual principles to our expectations, then deliverance from the torment that comes from "love gone sour" is rightfully ours. Historically, in woman's desire to have equal rights to men, we may have lost some elements that are essential to her survival, existence, and ability to flourish. Our government has produced many proclamations and documents for quality living of its citizens. Our forefathers wrote with irrefutable, God-given authority, wisdom, and foresight. Since early history, many amendments have been offered in order to seek full protection for the innocent, blameless the pure. Women's rights require special treatment. It's more than fair pay and voting privileges. Within the pages of this book, an illumination of brighter light appears. The seven divine rights revealed no longer lie dormant. They are being exposed as a guidepost to pursue new personal happiness and intimacy in woman's love relations. The feminine spirit will find them familiar. Her head will nod with affirmation. She will call up things within that had no name. Questions will begin to form answers. Ladies, being the "givers of life" through the process of birth, His Majesty speaks specifically to us. Here, you will get a glimpse of the revelation that He has provided us. We have divine rights in relationship. These rights, ordained by God, can take us from pain to sheer pleasure and delight. Let No Man Put Asunder: 7 Divine Rights for Every Woman holds the keys to a newer freedom. Let us embrace them. Protect them. Demand them knowing nothing less will suffice.
Download or read book Being Scioto Hopewell written by Christopher Carr and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2021 with total page 1564 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book, in two volumes, breathes fresh air empirically, methodologically, and theoretically into understanding the rich ceremonial lives, the philosophical-religious knowledge, and the impressive material feats and labor organization that distinguish Hopewell Indians of central Ohio and neighboring regions during the first centuries CE. The first volume defines cross-culturally, for the first time, the "ritual drama" as a genre of social performance. It reconstructs and compares parts of 14 such dramas that Hopewellian and other Woodland-period peoples performed in their ceremonial centers to help the soul-like essences of their deceased make the journey to an afterlife. The second volume builds and critiques ten formal cross-cultural models of "personhood" and the "self" and infers the nature of Scioto Hopewell peoples ontology. Two facets of their ontology are found to have been instrumental in their creating the intercommunity alliances and cooperation and gathering the labor required to construct their huge, multicommunity ceremonial centers: a relational, collective concept of the self defined by the ethical quality of the relationships one has with other beings, and a concept of multiple soul-like essences that compose a human being and can be harnessed strategically to create familial-like ethical bonds of cooperation among individuals and communities. The archaeological reconstructions of Hopewellian ritual dramas and concepts of personhood and the self, and of Hopewell peoples strategic uses of these, are informed by three large surveys of historic Woodland and Plains Indians narratives, ideas, and rites about journeys to afterlives, the creatures who inhabit the cosmos, and the nature and functions of soul-like essences, coupled with rich contextual archaeological and bioarchaeological-taphonomic analyses. The bioarchaeological-taphonomic method of lanthropologie de terrain, new to North American archaeology, is introduced and applied. In all, the research in this book vitalizes a vision of an anthropology committed to native logic and motivation and skeptical of the imposition of Western world views and categories onto native peoples.

Download or read book Radiohead and the Journey Beyond Genre written by Julia Ehmann and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2019-11-14 with total page 180 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Radiohead and the Journey Beyond Genre traces the uses and transgressions of genre in the music of Radiohead and studies the band’s varied reception in online and offline media. Radiohead’s work combines traditional rock sounds with a unique and experimental approach towards genre that sets the band apart from the contemporary mainstream. A play with diverse styles and audience expectations has shaped Radiohead’s musical output and opened up debates about genre amongst critics, fans, and academics alike. Interpretations speak of a music that is referential of the past but also alludes to the future. Applying both music- and discourse-analytical methods, the book discusses how genre manifests in Radiohead’s work and how it is interpreted amongst different audience groups. It explores how genre and generic flexibility affect the listeners’ search for musical meaning and ways of discussion. This results in the development of a theoretical framework for the study of genre in individual popular music oeuvres that explores the equal validity of widely differing forms of reception as a multidimensional network of meaning. While Radiohead’s music is the product of an eclectic mixture of musical influences and styles, the book also shows how the band’s experimental stance has increasingly fostered debates about Radiohead’s generic novelty and independence. It asks what remains of genre in light of its past or imminent transgression. Offering new perspectives on popular music genre, transgression, and the music and reception of Radiohead, the book will appeal to academics, students, and those interested in Radiohead and matters of genre. It contributes to scholarship in musicology, popular music, media, and cultural studies.

Download or read book Attack Surface written by Cory Doctorow and published by Tor Books. This book was released on 2020-10-13 with total page 386 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Cory Doctorow's Attack Surface is a standalone novel set in the world of New York Times bestsellers Little Brother and Homeland. Most days, Masha Maximow was sure she'd chosen the winning side. In her day job as a counterterrorism wizard for an transnational cybersecurity firm, she made the hacks that allowed repressive regimes to spy on dissidents, and manipulate their every move. The perks were fantastic, and the pay was obscene. Just for fun, and to piss off her masters, Masha sometimes used her mad skills to help those same troublemakers evade detection, if their cause was just. It was a dangerous game and a hell of a rush. But seriously self-destructive. And unsustainable. When her targets were strangers in faraway police states, it was easy to compartmentalize, to ignore the collateral damage of murder, rape, and torture. But when it hits close to home, and the hacks and exploits she’s devised are directed at her friends and family--including boy wonder Marcus Yallow, her old crush and archrival, and his entourage of naïve idealists--Masha realizes she has to choose. And whatever choice she makes, someone is going to get hurt. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
Download or read book SOE in Denmark written by and published by Frontline Books. This book was released on 2021-09-30 with total page 208 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From a small number of clandestine activities against the German occupation of Denmark in 1940, a sophisticated resistance movement developed which by 1944, with the support of Special Operations Executive, had become a highly effective intelligence gathering and sabotage organisation. Denmark is composed of a mainland and more than 500 islands, a fifth of which are inhabited, and the countryside is devoid of any inaccessible or mountainous region. Together this made communication between resistance cells difficult and meant that there were no natural bases from which guerrilla operations could be mounted. Nevertheless, thanks to supply drops of explosives, weapons and ammunition arranged by SOE, the Danes harassed the Germans and raised the moral of the Danish people in the latter, and most brutal, stages of the war. This largely forgotten story of SOE and its agents in Denmark, the latter facing extremely hazardous conditions, was written immediately after the war by a SOE staff member and read and validated by the Director of SOE, Major General Colin Gubbins. A very large number of documents were burned at SOE’s London headquarters in Baker Street when the organisation was wound down in 1946 making this history of the Danish Section an invaluable and irreplaceable study. SOE in Denmark was written at a time when SOE was still largely unknown to the general public and its operations a closely guarded secret. It was expected that its activities would never be officially acknowledged and the study of its actions in Denmark was compiled with the aim of provide a lasting record of its achievement. Within its pages we read of the dangers the agents faced, the logistical mountains they had to overcome, and the successes achieved in the face of a ruthless enemy. Completed with unique photographs from the Danish archives, SOE in Denmark is an essential addition to the SOE literature.

Download or read book AIMING FOR THE STARS written by Dr Sphumelele Ndlovu and published by Sphumelele Ndlovu. This book was released on 2018-07-13 with total page 196 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: AIMING FOR THE STARS is a memoir of Dr Sphumelele Ndlovu and his life of hardship, which led him to becoming a Scientist. His mother sold chickens to provide for her children, never considering himself worse off than others. The family was poor. Sphumelele’s life was also derailed when strikes caused 24 out of the 28 teachers at his school to abandon their posts in his matric year. Education was Ndlovu’s ticket to a better future, and he knew at a young age, that he wasn’t going to give it up without a fight. Ndlovu’s PhD placed him to be part of a team of scientists set out to measure the distance between the Earth and Moon using lasers. It is the sixth-ever such venture, but the first to be carried out by an African team. A man whose horizon was once confined to the perimeter of a chicken coop now handled tools that allowed his eyes to glide over galaxies.

Download or read book The Starday Story written by Nathan D. Gibson and published by Univ. Press of Mississippi. This book was released on 2011-06-30 with total page 282 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Starday Story: The House That Country Music Built is the first book entirely dedicated to one of the most influential music labels of the twentieth century. In addition to creating the largest bluegrass catalogue throughout the 1950s and '60s, Starday was also known for its legendary rockabilly catalogue, an extensive Texas honky-tonk outpouring, classic gospel and sacred recordings, and as a Nashville independent powerhouse studio and label. Written with label president and co-founder Don Pierce, this book traces the label's origins in 1953 through the 1968 Starday-King merger. Interviews with artists and their families, employees, and Pierce contribute to the stories behind famous hit songs, including "Y'all Come," "A Satisfied Mind," "Why Baby Why," "Giddy-up Go," "Alabam," and many others. Gibson's research and interviews also shed new light on the musical careers of George Jones, Arlie Duff, Willie Nelson, Roger Miller, the Stanley Brothers, Cowboy Copas, Red Sovine, and countless other Starday artists. Conversations with the children of Pappy Daily and Jack Starns provide a unique perspective on the early days of Starday, and extensive interviews with Pierce offer an insider glance at the country music industry during its golden era. Weathering through the storm of rock and roll and, later, the Nashville Sound, Starday was a home to traditional country musicians and became one of the most successful independent labels in American history. Ultimately, The Starday Story is the definitive record of a country music label that played an integral role in preserving our nation's musical heritage.

Download or read book The Cygnus Mystery written by Andrew Collines and published by Watkins Media Limited. This book was released on 2012-01-01 with total page 244 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Cygnus Constellation holds the key to proving that life originated in the heavens—and will ultimately return there. Best-selling author Andrew Collins has uncovered an astronomy that is about 17,000 years old, with standing stones, temples, and monuments across the globe oriented towards Cygnus’s stars. He also found that the use of deep caves by Palaeolithic man led to the rise of religious thought and the belief in life’s stellar origins. Now modern-day technology has confirmed that high-energy particles come from a binary star known as Cygnus X3. Ancient people knew what science is finally verifying: that the DNA of life came originally from deep space.
