Sociology celebrates the popular arts!

Drawing on narratological and feminist theory, Susan Sniader Lanser explores patterns of narration in a wide range of novels by women of England, France, and the United States from the 1740s to the present. She sheds light on the history of "voice" as a narrative strategy and as a means of attaining social power. She considers the dynamics in personal voice in authors such as Mary Shelley, Charlotte Brontë, Zora Neale Hurston, and Jamaica Kincaid. In writers who attempt a "communal voice" -- including Mary Wollstonecraft, Elizabeth Gaskell, Joan Chase, and Monique Wittig -- she finds innovative strategies that challenge the conventions of Western narrative.

You Are 1-Click Away From Discovering How To Prepare Mouthwatering Fried Foods!
Most of us love fried foods. I mean sinking your teeth into well-fried chicken that is crispy on the outside and soft and succulent in the inside is just an amazing mouthwatering experience.
Despite most well-fried food tasting great, the greatest downside of such foods is that you have to use a lot of oil to get that crispy coating outside.
You will agree with me that using that much oil is not only wasteful but is not the healthiest way to prepare food.
I know you are wondering...
Is there another way?
What is this other way?
And will you have produce the same, if not better quality, fried dishes using this other method?
The answer is a simple YES!
And this secret is the air fryer!
Thanks to air fryers, you can still enjoy fried food without all the unhealthy fat/oil and wastage!
With an air fryer, fry chips, chicken, fish, veggies and just anything you can imagine without using as much oil ...
When his classic Pontiac is abducted by a deity who lives in the depths of Lake Michigan, Petronius Jablonski is offered Enlightenment in compensation. To obtain it he must decipher the coded features of an odyssey. He neglects to share these minor details with his longsuffering girlfriend, Sandy, who accompanies him. Home-schooled by an eccentric father, Petronius holds the modern world in contempt, the demise of polytheism and eighteenth century English in general, the plague of democracy and "internets" in particular.
Despairing of his ability to understand the journey and rarely paying attention, he engages the Reader's assistance. His propensity for digressions complicates the search for a solution while making a mockery of first person narration. He anticipates absurd questions and adds chapters in response, he accuses the Reader of being smitten with Sandy and makes her less attractive, and he revolutionizes Philosophy by superseding Occam's overrated Razor and Plato's ...
In Gender and Genre in the Folklore of Middle India, Joyce Burkhalter Flueckiger analyzes six representative Indian folklore genres from a single regional repertoire to show the influence of their intertextual relations on the composition and interpretation of artistic performance. Placing special emphasis on women's rituals, she looks at the relationship between the framework and organization of indigenous genres and the reception of folklore performance. The regional repertoire under examination presents a strikingly female-centered world. Female performers and characters are active, articulate, and frequently challenge or defy expectations of gender. Men also confound traditional gender roles. Flueckiger includes the translations of two full performance texts of narratives sung by female and male storytellers respectively.

The United States Constitution is like a new musical composition that contains familiar notes and chords but nonetheless strikes the ear as highly original and fresh. Rather than a new creation, however, our Constitution is an amalgam of ideas and traditions that date back to the ancients. Its blend of six important principles renders it one of the most unique and exceptional creations in the annals of human history. In this engaging volume, professors from the Morris Family Center for Law & Liberty at Houston Baptist University explain the historical, philosophical, legal, and theological influences on our nation's founding principles and why they create a constitutional culture that is worth preserving. This accessible book, written for a general audience, will be of interest to anyone interested in learning more about the origins of our system of government.Topics include: 1. Athenian Democracy 2. The Fall of Rome 3. The Medieval Period 4. The English Civil War and the Glorious ...
Tiffany Cuthbert has just moved into her dream home and to top it all, she bought the house with the love-of-her-life and long-term boyfriend, Joe Frey.
So what could possibly go wrong?
As the young couple settle into their new home, on the outskirts of town, they begin to meet the neighbours, one by one.
Tiffany soon realises that things are not as they might have first appeared in Sycamore Close as she unwittingly gets drawn into strange situations with even stranger characters.
Will Tiffany and Joe's new house be home-sweet-home or will it turn out to be the pressure point where everything falls apart?
In this groundbreaking book David Roberts sets out to demonstrate the centrality of the total work of art to European modernism since the French Revolution. The total work of art is usually understood as the intention to reunite the arts into the one integrated whole, but it is also tied from the beginning to the desire to recover and renew the public function of art. The synthesis of the arts in the service of social and cultural regeneration was a particularly German dream, which made Wagner and Nietzsche the other center of aesthetic modernism alongside Baudelaire and Mallarmé.
The history and theory of the total work of art pose a whole series of questions not only to aesthetic modernism and its utopias but also to the whole epoch from the French Revolution to the totalitarian revolutions of the twentieth century. The total work of art indicates the need to revisit key assumptions of modernism, such as the foregrounding of the autonomy and separation of the arts at the expense ...

Michael Green expected many things from his 38th year: to redeem a failed acting/music/writing career, to build upon friendships and church relationships, and most of all, to finally meet someone. He'd been looking -- and waiting -- a long time.
What he didn't expect was to get arrested for a DUI, driving home from a church dinner. That changed everything.
It was a shame, too. Two weeks earlier, he had met someone.
ARRESTING GRACE is the story of Michael Green's DUI arrest, as well as his long distance relationship with Jessie, a woman from the Bay Area. Thoughtfully written, with unflinching honesty, Arresting Grace recalls such works as Donald Miller's BLUE LIKE JAZZ and Anne LaMott's GRACE (EVENTUALLY). A man searches for answers most earnestly when he's brought low. This is the story of a man, fallen lower than imaginable, searching for God in the midst... and finding grace in the most unexpected places.

Activities performed in organizations are coordinated via communication
between the people involved. The sentences used to communicate are naturally structured by subject, verb, and object. The subject describes the actor, the verb the action and the object what is affected by the action. Subject-oriented Business Process Management (S-BPM) as presented in this book is based on this simple structure which enables process-oriented thinking and process modeling.
S-BPM puts the subject of a process at the center of attention and thus
deals with business processes and their organizational environment from a new perspective, meeting organizational requirements in a much better way than traditional approaches. Subjects represent agents of an action in a process, which can be either technical or human (e.g. a thread in an IT system or a clerk). A process structures the actions of each subject and coordinates the required communication among the subjects. S-BPM provides a coherent ...
In "A Tramp Abroad", Mark Twain's unofficial sequel to "The Innocents Abroad", the author records his hilarious and diverse observations and insights while on a fifteen-month walking trip through Central Europe and the Alps.
"A Tramp Abroad" is a work of non-fiction travel literature by American author Mark Twain, published in 1880. The book details a journey by the author, with his friend Harris (a character created for the book, and based on his closest friend, Joseph Twichell), through central and southern Europe. While the stated goal of the journey is to walk most of the way, the men find themselves using other forms of transport as they traverse the continent.
As the two men make their way through Germany, the Alps, and Italy, they encounter situations made all the more humorous by their reactions to them. The narrator (Twain) plays the part of the American tourist of the time, believing that he understands all that he sees, but in reality understanding none of it.

There are many books written detailing the job search process covering everything from skills assessments and resume writing to interviewing and salary negotiations, but there is nothing available for the job seeker looking for something to sustain themselves mentally and spiritually. Being unable to sustain themselves mentally and spiritually many job seekers soon grow weary of the daunting job search journey and simply quit looking before they reach their goal.
The "Job Seeker's Faithful Guide" targets everybody involved in a career transition regardless whether they are unemployed, underemployed, seeking a new opportunity or launching a new business on their own. In fact, anyone in career transition is a job seeker.
One of the most difficult tasks a job seeker faces is how to sustain the mental and spiritual strength to make it through the complete journey. When a job seeker's mental and spiritual strength wanes the chances for success in the job search are drastically reduced, ...
Some Chinese characters are very simple and are made of just a few strokes, while others are made of other simpler characters, which are called radicals. Radicals are simple characters that combine to create compound Chinese characters. They have various meanings and can usually help you to understand the meaning and the pronunciation of compound characters. There are around 200 radicals in the Chinese language; therefore some people compare those radicals with letters or the roots of words.
This book focuses on the above-mentioned idea. Here, all the characters are broken into radicals to help you perceive Chinese characters as logical compounds, each representing a part of Chinese history, culture, and philosophy. The book will also show you how each character is used in sentences and phrases. Some characters come along with short grammatical explanations and cultural facts. Most of the character associations in this book have no etymological value, that is, they do not show how ...

Fasting has been a practice throughout human evolution. Ancient hunter-gatherers didn't have supermarkets, refrigerators or food available year-round. Sometimes they couldn't find anything to eat. As a result, humans evolved to be able to function without food for extended periods of time. In fact, fasting from time to time is more natural than always eating 3-4 (or more) meals per day.
Here are some changes that occur in your body when you fast:

While Homer's existence as a historical person is still a topic of debate, the writings attributed to the name have made their mark not only on Greek history and literature, but upon western civilization itself. Homer's epic poems, The Iliad and The Odyssey, laid the foundation upon which Ancient Greece developed not only its culture, but its societal values, religious beliefs, and practice of warfare as well.

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D. (The Complete Unabridged Edition in 6 Volumes)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Life of Samuel Johnson, LL.D. (1791) is a biography of Dr. Samuel Johnson written by James Boswell. It is regarded as an important stage in the development of the modern genre of biography; many have claimed it as the greatest biography written in English. While Boswell's personal acquaintance with his subject only began in 1763, when Johnson was 54 years old, Boswell covered the entirety of Johnson's life by means of additional research. The biography takes many critical liberties with Johnson's life, as Boswell makes various changes to Johnson's quotations and even censors many comments. Regardless of these actions, modern biographers have found Boswell's biography as an important source of information. The work was popular among early audiences and with modern critics, but some of the ...

This is a salutary tale of the 'adventures' of a pair of extremely innocent backpackers (one a debutante in this form of vacational masochism) as they embark on two, climatically very different, trips on the near continent. Seeking shelter each night sometimes in their tiny tent and at other times in accommodation of a very dubious kind (the names of these establishments have been changed to protect the guilty) they set about exploring some of Western Europe's major cities. Their routes take in the delights, and dangers, to be found in, amongst others- Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, Lisbon, Bordeaux, Amsterdam, Lyon, Salamanca, Geneva etc. You name it... and they had a traumatic 'arthropod-related experience' there. They also managed to be the victims of two successful robberies in the space of one, extremely uncomfortable, evening and also contracted most of the holiday ailments known to modern medicine... Oh yes, and they had to witness a totally gratuitous display of 'fancy dress ...
The world is primed for radical changes in government where each of us has an equal voice and all are held accountable. In Architecture of a Technodemocracy, Hanania provides a detailed blueprint on how to leverage current government processes, communications systems, and blockchain security to take the next step in the evolution of human government. By harnessing technology that already exists, we can nonviolently reshape our respective governments.
The cooperation of modern politicians is not a requirement. A technodemocracy can be created without spending any tax dollars, passing any new laws, or otherwise turning to career politicians for leadership. Like Bitcoin, technodemocracy uses readily available technologies to decentralize power from the 1% to the 100%. Its principles can be applied to any nation.
Despite being drafted more than 200 years ago, the Constitution enables a U.S. technodemocratic republic. No nation in history has ever had such an absolute straightaway to a ...

Goodreads Choice Nominee Ralph Webster tells the true story of his grandmother's desperate journey from her life at the Pensione Alexandra in Naples to America - after Mussolini and the Fascists join with Hitler - and as countries across the world close their doors to Jewish refugees fleeing the spread of Nazi evil.
In 1934, at age fifty-one, Elsa's comfortable life in Mussolini's Fascist Italy changes remarkably when she and her husband, Paul, purchase the Pensione Alexandria overlooking the Mediterranean in Naples. Though German Jews, they are embraced by their Italian neighbors, and for the next several years, the pensione flourishes and becomes their perch to observe the world's events. Travelers from across Europe and America come to the door, each with their own story, mystery, or surprise. Nearly all have been touched in some way by the ominous changes occurring to the north, in Nazi-controlled Germany.
When war breaks out in Europe and Italy sides with Germany, Elsa and her ...

In 2006, vaquita, a diminutive porpoise making its home in the Upper Gulf of California, inherited the dubious title of world's most endangered marine mammal. Nicknamed "panda of the sea" for their small size and beguiling facial markings, vaquitas have been in decline for decades, dying by the hundreds in gillnets intended for commercially valuable fish, as well as for an endangered fish called totoaba. When international crime cartels discovered a lucrative trade in the swim bladders of totoaba, illegal gillnetting went rampant, and now the lives of the few remaining vaquitas hang in the balance.

Detailing various methods from ancient Roman mnemonic techniques to scheduled pharmaceutical substances to brain-machine interfaces, Mr. Simola has produced a convincing treatise on the timely topic of cognitive enhancement.

The reduction of suffering deserves special priority. Many ethical views support this claim, yet so far these have not been presented in a single place. Suffering-Focused Ethics provides the most comprehensive presentation of suffering-focused arguments and views to date, including a moral realist case for minimizing extreme suffering. The book then explores the all-important issue of how we can best reduce suffering in practice, and outlines a coherent and pragmatic path forward.
"An inspiring book on the world's most important issue. Magnus Vinding makes a compelling case for suffering-focused ethics. Highly recommended."

Hint. It's not what you think. It's a recipe for persecution, corruption and heresy. America's founding fathers understood that government must protect freedom, including the freedom to practice all religions. But they also understood that not all religions teach men how to be good citizens and make their countries prosper. The truth isn't out there somewhere, unfindable and unknowable. It's right here.
