Now in paperback and fully updated, Matt Goss recounts his unbelievable life story in emotional detail. From financially deprived but emotionally rich beginnings, Matt sees his fortunes literally turned upside-down, with all the fame, glamour and money he could hope for violently snatched away from him. Matt Goss has been a staple part of British tabloid life for years - yet, the general public has had no idea of the astounding life that he has led - and still lives - behind the headlines and sound-bites. Here, for the first time, he takes them into his confidence and reveals the true extent of his own astounding tale. Matt was brought up in a proudly close but financially frustrated south London family with twin brother Luke and his mother. Fortunes changed rapidly for Matt when, alongside his brother Luke and school friend Craig, he created Bros - a band that sold sixteen million records in an intensely chaotic and record-breaking reign over the world's pop charts. By the end of his teens, Matt could boast eleven Top 40 hits, number ones in nineteen countries, a Brit Award and the record for being the youngest band to headline Wembley Stadium. Bros became a by-word for mercurial celebrity extravagance, hysterical fan stories, financial scandal, personal tragedy, tortuous upset and glorious triumph. Yet after those bizarre and insane times, Matt's life became even more tempestuous, crammed with inner fear, personal revelation and unforeseen challenges. He is now back with a vengeance after a spell on TV's Hell's Kitchen, finding a new audience through his acclaimed solo music career, which has already included chart-topping soundtracks and further Top 40 hits. Here he will finally tell the true story of his life, promising to reveal a litany of private torment, personal revelations and celebrity anecdotes. With the most up-to-date information available on going to press, this is the account of a man who can truly say that he has experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows, to have held the world in his hand and seen it snatched away from him in the blink of an eye, yet has the strength of character and personal insight to continue to claim to be 'truly blessed'.

Excerpt: The following is a list of Chinese painters and Calligraphers: Chua Ek Kay (simplified Chinese: ; pinyin: Cŕi Yěxi) (21 November 1947 - 8 February 2008) was a Singaporean artist hailed as the "bridge between Asian and Western art" with a unique painting style using Chinese ink on paper that demonstrated an ingenious blend of traditional Chinese painting forms with Western art theories and techniques. Most of his works were themed of Chinatown street scenes, lotuses, and abstract works inspired by Australian aboriginal cave paintings. Chua Ek Kay was born in Guangdong, China, on 21 November 1947, the eldest of seven children. In the 1950s, his family migrated to Singapore, and settled in Liang Seah Street. Chinese cultural influences were very much a part of his daily life and art, and as a child Chua picked up Chinese literature and poetry, and practised writing Chinese characters with his father. Even in school, he often took part in calligraphy and classical poetry activities as a student at the Catholic High School. He excelled in both areas, writing his own poems and becoming known in school for his excellent poetic calligraphy. This reputation soon spread to local calligraphy and poetic circles. In 1975, the 28-year-old Chua became a student of Chinese brush painting and seal-carving of Singaporean master ink painter, Fan Chang Tien. Though he was deeply passionate about art, Chua continued to make his living by taking on a variety of jobs. Finally, in 1985, he resigned his post as a manager of a garment factory to become a full-time artist. At the age of 38 he embarked on his artistic journey, supplementing his income as a lecturer with the Extramural Studies Department of the National University of Singapore.

Perfect Distance PHOENIX
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Steve Ovett and Sebastian Coe presided over the golden era of British athletics. Between them they won three Olympic gold medals, two silvers, one bronze and broke a total of twelve middle-distance records. They were part of the landscape of the late seventies and early eighties -- both household names, their exploits were watched by millions. As far apart as possible in terms of class and upbringing -- Ovett is the art student, the long-haired son of a market-trader from Brighton, a natural athlete; Coe's formative years were spent under the rigorous training routine of Peter Coe, a self-taught trainer who referred to his son as 'my athlete' -- their rivalry burned as intense on the track as away from it. The pendulum swung between the pair of them -- each breaking the other's records, and, memorably, triumphing in each other's events in Moscow in 1980 -- for the best part of a decade, until the final showdown at the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984 ...The Perfect Distance is both a detailed re-creation and a fitting celebration of the greatest era of British athletics.
Beyond Media Literacy Five Rivers Chapmanry
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
This handbook is for anyone interested in breaking away from the antiquated models of media literacy that are promoted in school curriculums everywhere. It attempts to flip the script by explaining that young people may have more to teach us about media literacy than we do them. Young people are hungry to explore, understand, and repurpose media to make it relevant to their lives and their understanding of the world. As parents, teachers, community workers, and allies, we need to change the way we approach media education by working with young people rather than talking at them. The first seven chapters lay out the need for a paradigm shift in media literacy and suggest an alternative approach. The next section provides twenty possible activities to facilitate students working together, where the development of student leadership and group cohesion are outcomes as important as the acquisition of key media skills. The final section suggests nine options for long-term culminating projects. Altogether, the handbook provides a complete orientation and practical program for anyone wishing to work with youth to achieve a more comprehensive, active, and socially responsible media literacy .
