Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

An erotic new game in the "must-read" (Fresh Fiction) Play-By-Play series from the New York Times bestselling author of The Perfect Play, Jaci Burton. Perfect for fans of Lori Foster, Maya Banks and Jill Shalvis. Someone's going to have to let down their guard...Football star Cole Riley is notorious for doing as he pleases-on the field and off. He parties hard and fights harder, but if he doesn't clean up his act, his career is over-so Cole reluctantly agrees to work with image makeover consultant Savannah Brooks. He's not used to being told what to do, especially by some (admittedly hot) Southern belle. As for Savannah, she's not convinced she can transform this cocky (and aggressively sexy) force of nature. But she's determined to give it her best shot. When the sparks start to fly, Savannah lays down the ground rules: no personal complications. If she can turn off the tingle she feels every time Cole gives her a hot stare with his gorgeous baby blues, he can turn off his desire as well. But for two people determined to have it all, a hands-off policy can only last so long before one of them yields. Keep to the field with the next in Jaci Burton's Play-By-Play series or get off the beaten track in small town Oklahoma with Hope Flames, the first in Burton's new contemporary romance series.

Voices of the Mind: a Sociocultural Approach to Mediated Act HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In "Voices of the Mind," James Wertsch outlines an approach to mental functioning that stresses its inherent cultural, historical, and institutional context. A critical aspect of this approach is the cultural tools or "mediational means" that shape both social and individual processes. In considering how these mediational means--in particular, language--emerge in social history and the role they play in organizing the settings in which human beings are socialized, Wertsch achieves fresh insights into essential areas of human mental functioning that are typically unexplored or misunderstood. Although Wertsch's discussion draws on the work of a variety of scholars in the social sciences and the humanities, the writings of two Soviet theorists, L. S. Vygotsky (1896-1934) and Mikhail Bakhtin (1895-1975), are of particular significance. "Voices of the Mind" breaks new ground in reviewing and integrating some of their major theoretical ideas and in demonstrating how these ideas can be extended to address a series of contemporary issues in psychology and related fields. A case in point is Wertsch's analysis of "voice," which exemplifies the collaborative nature of his effort. Although some have viewed abstract linguistic entities, such as isolated words and sentences, as the mechanism shaping human thought, Wertsch turns to Bakhtin, who demonstrated the need to analyze speech in terms of how it "appropriates" the voices of others in concrete sociocultural settings. These appropriated voices may be those of specific speakers, such as one's parents, or they may take the form of "social languages" characteristic of a category of speakers, such as an ethnic or national community. Speaking and thinking thus involve the inherent process of "ventriloquating" through the voices of other socioculturally situated speakers. "Voices of the Mind" attempts to build upon this theoretical foundation, persuasively arguing for the essential bond between cognition and culture.

The ground-breaking book that gives women the practical skills they need to begin Playing Big. Five years ago, Tara Mohr began to see a pattern in her work as an expert in leadership: women with tremendous talent, ideas and aspiration were not recognising their own brilliance. These were women who felt they were 'playing small' in their lives and careers, who were frustrated by it, and wanted to 'play bigger', but didn't know how. And so Tara devised a step-by-step programme for playing big from the inside out: this book is the result. Sheryl Sandberg's Lean In gave many women new awareness about the kinds of changes they need to make to become more successful; yet most women need help implementing them. Not every woman aspires to be a CEO, but every woman aspires to something - more influence at work or fulfilment at home; more opportunity to make their ideas a reality; more confidence to find out what's important and act upon it. Here, Tara Mohr shows every woman how to play bigger - whether they are a graduate, manager, volunteer, creative, stay-at-home mum or an entrepreneur with a great idea for a start-up. Playing Big is a new kind of personal development book - one that provides real, practical tools to help women trust their instincts; identify and pursue their callings; detach from praise and criticism; leave good girl habits behind; become their own mentor; and begin to take bold action using their unique strengths and resources. Tara has already helped thousands of women across the world to play bigger according to what playing big truly means to them. And when women play big, we make things happen.

Egzamin na tłumacza przysięgłego. Przewodnik po prawie cywilnym. Język angielski. Prawo rzeczowe i spadkowe C.H. Beck

Dla tłumaczy

Przewodnik po prawie cywilnym. Prawo rzeczowe i spadkowe zawiera: - Hasła związane z polskim i angloamerykańskim prawem rzeczowym i spadkowym, - Definicje oparte na regulacjach ustawowych, orzecznictwie i dorobku doktryny, - Uwagi dotyczące etymologii wybranych terminów, - Omówienie anglosaskich konstrukcji prawnych niewystępujących w prawie polskim, - Porównanie wybranych instytucji prawa rzymskiego, polskiego i anglosaskiego, - Angielskie odpowiedniki kluczowych terminów związanych z definiowanym hasłem, - Dwa indeksy alfabetyczno-tematyczne terminów w języku polskim i angielskim.   W książce przedstawiono również pojęcia i terminologię, którymi posługują się ustawodawcy państw reprezentujących tzw. mieszane systemy prawa  (mixed legal systems). Należą do nich Filipiny, Malta, Portoryko, Quebec, RPA oraz Szkocja. Przewodnik jest adresowany do: - Tłumaczy przysięgłych, - Osób przygotowujących się do egzaminu na tłumacza przysięgłego, - Studentów prawa i europeistyki, - Radców prawnych, - Notariuszy, - Adwokatów, - Nauczycieli angielskiego języka prawniczego, - Osób prowadzących badania z zakresu juryslingwistyki i komparatystyki prawniczej. WSTĘP: Książka oddawana w ręce Czytelników stanowi przewodnik po prawie cywilnym, ze szczególnym uwzględnieniem terminologii prawa rzeczowego i spadkowego. Przewodnik ten został napisany w formie słownika encyklopedycznego, co powinno ułatwić Czytelnikom odszukiwanie informacji, a także ich przyswojenie. Wszystkie hasła opatrzono definicjami opartymi na regulacjach ustawowych, orzecznictwie i dorobku doktryny. Dodatkowo w definicjach podano - jako novum w tego rodzaju publikacjach leksykograficznych - angielskie odpowiedniki kluczowych, zdaniem autorki, terminów związanych z definiowanym hasłem. Publikację zamykają dwa szczegółowe indeksy rzeczowe. Pierwszy z nich zawiera hasła w języku polskim, a drugi - w języku angielskim. W przewodniku omówiono instytucje prawa polskiego i anglosaskiego. Przy wyszukiwaniu ekwiwalentów polskich figur prawnych korzystano ze źródeł związanych nie tylko z prawem angielskim i walijskim, ale również z prawem cywilnym innych państw anglojęzycznych. Część z nich zaliczana jest do tzw. mieszanych systemów prawa (mixed legal systems). Reprezentują je Filipiny, Malta, Portoryko, Quebec, RPA oraz Szkocja. Wymienione systemy są multikulturowe i zawierają elementy pochodzące z co najmniej dwóch tradycji prawnych: romańsko-germańskiej (civil law) i anglo-amerykańskiej (common law). Stosowanie ekwiwalentów polskich instytucji prawa cywilnego zaczerpniętych z języka prawa stosowanego przez systemy mieszane może w wielu przypadkach okazać się trafnym rozwiązaniem terminologicznym. Należy jednak przy tym wystrzegać się nadmiernych uproszczeń. Aby ich uniknąć, w książce starano się zasygnalizować poważniejsze różnice występujące pomiędzy omawianymi pojęciami, a część haseł opatrzono dodatkowym komentarzem zatytułowanym: "uwaga terminologiczna". Ponadto, w celu podkreślenia obcości pewnych konstrukcji prawnych niewystępujących w prawie polskim i niemających ustalonych odpowiedników terminologicznych, pozostawiono je w wersji oryginalnej w przypadku, gdy pojawiały się jako wyrazy hasłowe (np. entailed interest, fee, manor, negative pledge). Przewodnik adresowany jest do szerokiego grona czytelników: tłumaczy przysięgłych, osób przygotowujących się do egzaminu na tłumacza przysięgłego, studentów prawa i europeistyki, radców prawnych, notariuszy, adwokatów, a także nauczycieli angielskiego języka prawniczego. Publikacja może się również okazać przydatna osobom prowadzącym badania z zakresu juryslingwistyki i komparatystyki prawniczej.

'Only with the greatest of simplifications, for the sake of convenience, can we say Africa. In reality, except as a geographical term, Africa doesn't exist'. Ryszard Kapuscinski has been writing about the people of Africa throughout his career. In a study that avoids the official routes, palaces and big politics, he sets out to create an account of post-colonial Africa seen at once as a whole and as a location that wholly defies generalised explanations. It is both a sustained meditation on the mosaic of peoples and practises we call 'Africa', and an impassioned attempt to come to terms with humanity itself as it struggles to escape from foreign domination, from the intoxications of freedom, from war and from politics as theft. The Beginning: Collision, Ghana 1958 More than anything, one is struck by the light. Light everywhere. Brightness everywhere. Everywhere, the sun. Just yesterday, an autumnal London was drenched in rain. The airplane drenched in rain. A cold, wind, darkness. But here, from the morning

Playing the Deck With your horde of warriors, shamans, and wild beasts, your goal is to put your opponents on the back foot, then smash through their defenses. This deck lets you take the offensive, dominating the battle and denying your enemy time to execute a strategy. Your game plan is to attack early and often. Ideally, you'll start by playing a couple of creatures in the first three turns. If your opponent summons some early blockers, clear them away with Shock and Flames of the Firebrand rather than trade them for your creatures in combat. Your cards are at their best when you're attacking, so it's important to keep some creatures on the battlefield. Once your creature assault begins, your other cards provide support for the offensive. This deck makes great use of the Gatecrash set's bloodrush mechanic, which can help your attacking creatures barrel over your opponent's blockers. When boosting your creatures in combat, your first priority should be to keep your attackers alive. Unless you can finish off your opponent this turn, it's almost always better to pump up a blocked creature than it is to deal more damage to your opponent. Ghor-Clan Rampager is particularly awesome because it lets you do both by granting +4/+4 and trample. One of the most powerful tricks this deck can do involves Wild Beastmaster plus a bloodrush card. You can attack with Wild Beastmaster and discard a bloodrush card from your hand to boost its power before Wild Beastmaster's ability takes effect. The result? The bonus from the bloodrush ability is effectively passed on to all of your attacking creatures for a bone-crushing combat phase. Armed/Dangerous can also set up a huge attack when you use its fuse ability to cast both halves of the card. By choosing two different targets, you can force your opponent to block a small creature, leaving the path clear for your double-striking monstrosity to connect. Your sideboard offers options to counter your opponent's strategy and give you the advantage. If your opponent is gaining lots of life, respond with Skullcrack to put a stop to it. Annihilating Fire helps permanently burn away creatures that come back from the graveyard or have effects when they die. Against other decks with big creatures, Act of Treason and Enlarge are trump cards that let you turn combat dramatically in your favor. Gruul Charm comes in handy against decks with flying creatures or lots of blockers. Savage Summoning is a powerful weapon against counterspells. An aggressive strategy is among the most satisfying routes to victory in Magic

Opis - Jakie są poglądy młodych Europejczyków na swoją przyszłość? Jakie kwestie ich niepokoją, a do czego są nastawieni optymistycznie? Gdzie znajdują informacje i idee odnoszące się do różnych zagadnień i wydarzeń? Jaka, według nich, będzie ich rola w kształtowaniu własnej przyszłości? To prekursorskie studium porównuje nadzieje i obawy młodych ludzi (pomiędzy 11. a 17. rokiem życia) w czterech bardzo odmiennych krajach Europy i znajduje między nimi wiele podobieństw. Badania zostały wsparte przez Europejską Fundację Naukową - Program ECRP, polskie Ministerstwo Nauki i Szkolnictwa Wyższego, hiszpański międzyministerialny Komitet Nauki i Technologii (CICYT), turecką Radę Turcji ds. Badań Naukowych i Technologicznych (TUBITAK) i Akademię Brytyjską. Książka podejmuje bardzo aktualne i ważne problemy dotyczące przyszłości młodych ludzi jako obywateli swoich państw, Europy i świata. Publikacja ma wyraźną strukturę, opartą na trzech głównych tematach ? nadzieje i obawy młodych ludzi, pytanie o optymizm w kwestiach społecznych oraz działania młodzieży. Podsumowując, jest to praca bardzo wartościowa. Jestem przekonany, że spotka się ona z pozytywnym odbiorem i będzie miała znaczny wpływ na badaczy, studentów i rzeczywistych twórców polityki europejskiej. Profesor Ian Menter, Uniwersytet w Glasgow (z recenzji) Trudno przecenić poznawczą wartość tej książki. W mojej opinii jest to książka ważna, użyteczna dla teoretyków i praktyków, ponieważ stanowiąca rzetelne i aktualne źródło wiedzy o nastolatkach w czterech krajach Europy. Profesor Anna Kwiatkowska, Wyższa Szkoła Zarządzania i Prawa w Warszawie (z recenzji) What are young Europeans? views of their future? What issues concern them, and what are they optimistic about? Where do they find out information and ideas about issues and events? What role do they think they will play in shaping their own futures? This groundbreaking study compares the hopes and fears of young people (between 11 and 17) in four very different European countries, and identifies much common ground between them. The study was supported by the European Science Foundation ECRP programme, the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education, the Spanish Inter-ministerial Committee on Science and Technology (CICYT), the Turkish Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TŰBITAK) and the British Academy. It addresses a very topical and important set of issues concerning young people and their future as citizens of their nations, of Europe and of the world. The structure of the book is sound, being based around three major themes ? the hopes and fears of the young people; the question of optimism about social issues; the young people?s activities. Overall, this is an extremely valuable collection. It will, I am sure, be well received and have considerable influence on researchers, students and indeed European policy makers. Professor Ian Menter, Glasgow University (from review) One can hardly overestimate the cognitive value of this book. In my opinion, the book is important, useful for theorists and practitioners as it constitutes a reliable and up-to-date source of knowledge about adolescents in four European countries.

Opis - A parade through Bangkok"s outposts of good food, design, retail, and more, this definitive travel guide will make you feel like a local no matter where you are from. Bangkok is a city that welcomes visitors but is complex in both history and layout. There"s a reason that people come back time and time again: this is not a place you can fully comprehend with just one trip. The Thai capital is both socially tolerant and deeply conservative; its businesses are often friendly but difficult to find. It"s a city where both an old monarchy and a young creative class find common ground. In helping you navigate Bangkok"s streets, Monocle will show you a city where business and design is thriving. Hidden in plain sight are great parks for running, architectural masterpieces designed by Thai firms, and hidden bars playing music you"ve never heard before. And, of course, Monocle will tell you where to head for the city"s famous street food, spa treatments, and hotels for both business and leisure (or a mix of the two). Even if you have been to Bangkok before, you"re about to find out why there"s so much more to discover.

Gregg Barrios captures the heady times of living and loving in Los Angeles in the 1980s in his play I-DJ. The play is a coming of age story of a gay Mexican-American dance club DJ Amado Guerrero Paz (aka Warren Peace). This two-act play takes place in one evening even though the story covers the decades of the 1960s to the '80s. DJ Warren Peace sets the audience straight right away: "Tonight's ground rules are simple. Play original A&M Record vinyl releases-Nada más." I-DJ is scored with the strategically placed music of A&M recording artists Herb Alpert & Tijuana Brass (The Lonely Bull and Whipped Cream) The Carpenters (Yesterday Once More, One Fine Day, and Fun, Fun, Fun) Chris Montez (Call Me), Cat Stevens (Peace Train), Procol Harum (Conquistador) Humble Pie (I Don't Need a Doctor). DJ Warren Peace's life journey captures the turmoil of his times, the struggle for gay identity, the Chicano civil rights movement, and the AIDS crisis in a dramatic and personal way.

We normally hear the word premeditated in conjunction with murder. One has deliberated for a long time, covered every option, thought about every detail in taking another's life. Premeditated mercy is the parallel opposite of premeditated murder. It implies a deliberate, thoughtful and willful act to give life: to forgive, to be reconciled, to live at peace with others, even those who have betrayed us, forsaken us, abandoned us, threatened us. In Premeditated Mercy Father Joe Nassal outlines a comprehensive and transformative spirituality of reconciliation. He offers a recipe for preparing a meal of mercy in the pattern of the Gospels. Jesus' challenge is clear enough: We are to reconcile with one another before bringing our gifts to the altar, for that table reflects God's desire that we live in a holy communion with all people. Premeditated mercy suggests that in our silent prayer before the altar we ponder the breach in relationship and plot a strategy that will lead to reconciliation. Includes: 1.Revolutionary recipes for communal as well as one-on-one reconciliation 2.Scripturally sound, freshly creative ways to set the table for forgiveness and communion 3.How to find room at the table for all--the beloved as well as the betrayer 4.How to find common ground amidst the variety of values and wounds we bring to the table 5.How we can make sacred connections within ourselves and in our relationships 6.Helps us see our shadows on Mercy Street 7.Helps us learn prayer from the crawl space 8.Helps us find our footing in the shadow of the cross Employing engaging stories from a variety of faith traditions, from real life as well as original tales, this poetic manual for becoming a minister of reconciliation brings a radically challenging spiritual work within the reach of each of us. A fresh Lenten resource for pastoral ministers, for disciples of the Preacher of the Sermon on the Mount and all who seek to live more fully the way of reconciliation.

Inne 1

Is America the new world empire? Presidents from Lincoln to Bush may have denied it but, as Niall Ferguson's brilliant and provocative book shows, the US is the greatest military and economic colossus of all time. What's more, it always has been an empire, with its founding fathers battling westwards for territory and their successors spreading freedom across the world - at gunpoint if necessary. Yet is the US really equipped to play Atlas, bearing the weight of the world on its shoulders? America, Ferguson reveals, is now an empire running on empty, backing away from the crucial imperial commitments of time, money and manpower - and resting on perilous financial foundations. When the New Rome falls, its collapse may come from within. Unlike the majority of European writers who have written on this subject, I am fundamentally in favor of empire. Indeed, I believe that empire is more necessary in the twenty-first century than ever before. The threats we face are not in themselves new ones. But advances in technology make them more dangerous than ever before. Thanks to the speed and regularity of modern air travel, infectious diseases can be transmitted to us with terrifying swiftness. And thanks to the relative cheapness and destructiveness of modern weaponry, tyrants and terrorists can realistically think of devastating our cities. The old, post-1945 system of sovereign states, bound loosely together by an evolving system of international law, cannot easily deal with these threats because there are too many nation-states where the writ of the "international community" simply does not run. What is required is an agency capable of intervening in the affairs of such states to contain epidemics, depose tyrants, end local wars and eradicate terrorist organizations. This is the self-interested argument for empire. But there is also a complementary altruistic argument. Even if they did not pose a direct threat to the security of the United States, economic and social conditions in a number of countries in the world would justify some kind of intervention. The poverty of a country like Liberia is explicable not in terms of resource endowment; otherwise (for example) Botswana would be just as poor. The problem in Liberia, as in so many sub-Saharan African states, is simply misgovernment: corrupt and lawless dictators whose conduct makes economic development impossible and encourages political opposition to take the form of civil war. Countries in this condition will not correct themselves. They require the imposition of some kind of external authority. There are those who would insist that an empire is by definition incapable of playing such a role; in their eyes, all empires are exploitative in character. Yet there can be

Life Descending/Ascending is a significant work of lyrical, cerebral poetry that reveals seven universal experiences in life, from crime, politics and death to nature, ephemera, creativity, and love. From a clandestine attempt at theft to a final acceptance of life's convoluted and challenging path, in a burst of "Song," Life: Descending / Ascending covers much ground with thistle and wildflowers. Shapiro's second collection of poems is a rare volume that is both celebratory and somberly thought-provoking. It takes a poet, painter or musician to point out the minutiae of details in our human experience, those impressions that most strongly influence us, even in our unawareness of them. Shapiro's poems, in an esoteric but accessible fashion, are signals, symbols, hints at who we really are in this life. PRAISE "In this new volume of poems, Alice Shapiro finds countless ways to show us how we live now. She transforms the present moment into vivid art, blends down-to-earth voices with a poet's sense of sound deftly, and meets the challenge of writing originally about big subjects like politics, death, disease, loneliness, and love. In Crime, Shapiro is guilty of great writing, and her poetry descends into life itself and ascends into rare achievement." --Hans Ostrom, author of The Coast Starlight: Collected Poems 1976-2006 Alice Shapiro's far-reaching second collection of poems, Crime, investigates the lesson that "has no end" and seeks-out philosophical clues that make up our lives during a time of war: an ink-black ocean, paisley dress, chocolate, a door ajar, cup of joe... Where "arguments / lose their salt" fact becomes the closed spaces in a "mind exiled from its mental country" because, as the speaker says, "your truth is my oblivion". Seen from "the pit of a heart" and "heard within our own adventure," Crime journeys forward trying to solve the endless, personal mystery of another day on Earth. Listen: the breath, the yelp, the distant roar, "the future?" --Elena Karina Byrne "I can feel the shiver / of love" in these poems. --Mary Harwell Sayler ALICE SHAPIRO's first collection of poems, CRACKED Timeless Topics of Nature, Courage and Endurance, was published by TotalRecall Press (2009) with a preface by Suffolk L.I. Poet Laureate David Axelrod, and was nominated for a 2010 Pushcart Prize and a GAYA Award (Georgia Author of the Year). Her second collection, LIFE Descending / Ascending published by TotalRecall Press (2010) and a third volume in 2011. She is author of a chapbook, Seasons of the Heart published by Scars Publications (2007). Shapiro is also winner of the Bill C. Davis Drama Award for a one-act verse play (Four Voices) that was produced in New York. It will again be produced by StageWorks, Virginia in 2010. She was judge for Poetry Out Loud 2010 at the regional level. INTERVIEW WITH ALICE SHAPIRO Q: Explain your passion for poetry. A: Writing poetry is a fulfilling activity, like work. With the barest essentials - a pen and paper - I can create a dream world that is stimulating, exciting, sometimes dangerous, always nurturing, and filled with a sense of unconditional love. Poetry is a gift from God that I may share with others. Q: What's the t
