Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

We are living in a .com world. The old rules are changing, but it is not yet clear what the new rules are. Everything is in flux, and the speed and complexity of the changes are difficult for many of us to absorb. Futurists, historians, and social scientists tell us the transition to a networked economy is the biggest shift in the way the world functions since the Industrial Revolution. The people working today are the bridge generation, spanning the gap between the old and new ways of doing business. The business and professional world is working feverishly to learn how to change its business strategies to capitalize on this .com world. A great deal of attention is directed at the external business issues of designing, marketing, selling, and delivering goods and services in the networked environment. But the internal infrastructure and culture changes that are needed to deliver on those new business strategies have received very little attention so far. Culture.com tackles the question of how to create a corporate culture that matches the new .com business strategy. It explains how a company' s internal culture must adapt to complement, support, and be properly aligned with the organization's external business strategy. And it shows how failure to adapt can undermine, or even destroy, a company's ability to carry out its objectives. Culture.com is a highly practical guide to the pressing corporate culture issues that face every e--business, from .com start--ups to traditional organizations making the transition into the clicks--and--mortar world. * Explains the 9 key characteristics of a .com culture that are vital for all organizations. * Offers practical tips and strategies to ensure that your corporate culture can be a competitive advantage, rather than a liability, in the .com world. * Provides hands--on advice on changing your corporate culture to reflect the new realities of e--business: debugging on the fly, rapid risk taking and decision making, developing a culture of collaboration, building corporate culture in virtual organizations, and much more. * Shows how to break old organizational habits that no longer fit in the world of e--business, and how to learn now ways to think, believe, and behave. * Features examples and interviews from a wide range of companies, government settings, and not--for--profits. Praise for Culture.com "What a simple, yet profound, understanding of culture! This is a wise, practical and important guide in navigating todaya s a dot coma whitewater world." -- Dr. Stephen R. Covey, the author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People "At last someone has paid attention to that most powerful force called a culturea at just the right time. As has always been the case, either we manage culture or it manages us. As we go deeper into this new world of bricks and clicks, it is imperative that we rededicate ourselves to the creation and survival of exceptional business cultures." -- Jim Hammock, CEO and Chairman, Hire.com "Fast--paced and readable, Culture.com combines examples from successful .com companies with practical tips to guide executives struggling to build lasting corporations in the virtual settings of the global economy. The authors are well ahead of most business school research." -- David O. Porter, Professor of Management and former Dean, School of Management, University of Alaska, Fairbanks; Founding Director of the Idaho Department of Commerce "Competing in the e--business world requires companies to shape their corporate culture to implement their business strategies. The authors of Culture.com have recognized this reality and provide practical tips, real--world stories, and smart guidance vital to executives, managers, and employees alike." -- J.W. Marriott, Jr., Chairman and CEO, Marriott International "Culture.com is a much--needed, practical, and complete guide to help companies make the transition in todaya s workplace in order to survive and succeed. Focusing on the use of every individuala s creative power, talents, and experience has been lacking, is needed, and this book shows the way." -- John D. Baker, President, John D. Baker & Associates, and retired Vice President, Commercial, Mars, Inc. "With the speed and complexity of the business environment today, Culture.com is a lighthouse beacon offering direction out of the fog and uncertainty. It provides all of us who are journeying to new places a solid bearing and sage advice to chart a safe course." -- Janice Wismer, Vice President, Human Resources, Canadian Tire Retail "No matter where you are in an organization, or who you work for, having a a livinga corporate culture in place that supports the values of what you believe in--and is demonstrated every day in your actions--is key to the degree of your success.

It requires continuous learning and change. Culture.com can help you with this." -- Bruce Freeman, Vice President and Information Officer, Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway

Alain de Botton, best-selling author of How Proust can Change Your Life, has set six of the finest minds in the history of philosophy to work on the problems of everyday life.

Photoshop CC and Lightroom rocky nook
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom are central to almost all photographic workflows. Each new version of the software is a milestone in the development of these vital imaging tools, and the 2014 releases are no exception. Photographers often feel overwhelmed when starting with Photoshop; the sheer number of tools and options make it difficult for the novice and intermediate user alike. There is no shortage of instructional books, yet very few direct the user to the most significant aspects of the program in a way that reflects a real workflow for the photographer. Adobe Certified Instructor Steve Laskevitch has leveraged his experience as a teacher and practitioner to create a guide that provides a clear and effective workflow for editing photographs in the 2014 release of Photoshop CC and its companions Bridge, Camera Raw, and Lightroom 5. Focusing on the critical elements of a workflow rather than covering every arcane feature, this book is designed to get you working quickly in these applications. Along the way, the various applications are presented side-by-side so that a user of one may learn how to use the other: a kind of workflow Rosetta Stone. Or, if you're new to it all, this book will be your roadmap, helping you decide which way to go. In addition to the essential features of these programs, Laskevitch covers new features specific to the new releases, including: Lightroom mobile Dramatically improved RAW image processing, including the new Radial Filter and retouching of irregular shapes Photoshop's Improved Blur Gallery (Tilt-Shift, Iris, Field. and Radial Blur tools), Add selective focus, and bokeh effects Recomposing or retouching photos with even more content-aware editing and retouching tools Automatic straightening of image content Camera shake reduction Improved perspective correction Broader video support
XXXXX - Xxxxx Mute Publishing Ltd
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
xxxxx proposes a radical, new space for artistic exploration, with essential contributions from a diverse range of artists, theorists, and scientists. Combining intense background material, code listings, screenshots, new translation, [the] xxxxx [reader] functions as both guide and manifesto for a thought movement which is radically opposed to entropic contemporary economies. xxxxx traces a clear line across eccentric and wide ranging texts under the rubric of life coding which can well be contrasted with the death drive of cynical economy with roots in rationalism and enlightenment thought. Such philosophy, world as machine, informs its own deadly flipside embedded within language and technology. xxxxx totally unpicks this hiroshimic engraving, offering an dandyish alternative by way of deep examination of software and substance. Life coding is primarily active, subsuming deprecated psychogeography in favour of acute wonderland technology, wary of any assumed transparency. Texts such as Endonomadology, a text from celebrated biochemist and chaos theory pioneer Otto E. Roessler, who features heavily throughout this intense volume, make plain the sadistic nature and active legacy of rationalist thought. At the same time, through the science of endophysics, a physics from the inside elaborated here, a delicate theory of the world as interface is proposed. xxxxx is very much concerned with the joyful elaboration of a new real; software-led propositions which are active and constructive in eviscerating contemporary economic culture. xxxxx embeds Perl Routines to Manipulate London, by way of software artist and Mongrel Graham Harwood, a Universal Dovetailer in the Lisp language from AI researcher Bruno Marchal rewriting the universe as code, and self explanatory Pornographic Coding from plagiarist and author Stewart Home and code art guru Florian Cramer. Software is treated as magical, electromystical, contrasting with the tedious GUI desktop applications and user-led drudgery expressed within a vast ghost-authored literature which merely serves to rehearse again and again the demands of industry and economy. Key texts, which well explain the magic and sheer art of programming for the absolute beginner are published here. Software subjugation is made plain within the very title of media theorist Friedrich Kittler's essay Protected Mode, published in this volume. Media, technology and destruction are further elaborated across this work in texts such as War.pl, Media and Drugs in Pynchon's Second World War, again from Kittler, and Simon Ford's elegant take on J.G Ballard's crashed cars exhibition of 1970, A Psychopathic Hymn. Software and its expansion stand in obvious relation to language. Attacking transparency means examining the prison cell or virus of language; life coding as William Burrough's cutup. And perhaps the most substantial and thorough-going examination is put forward by daring Vienna actionist Oswald Wiener in his Notes on the Concept of the Bio-adapter which has been thankfully unearthed here. Equally, Olga Goriunova's extensive examination of a new Russian literary trend, the online male literature of udaff.com provides both a reexamination of culture and language, and an example of the diversity of xxxxx; a diversity well reflected in background texts ranging across subjects such as Leibniz' monadology, the ur-crash of supreme flaneur Thomas de Quincey and several rewritings of the forensic model of Jack the Ripper thanks to Stewart Home and Martin Howse. xxxxx liberates software from the machinic, and questions the transparency of language, proposing a new world view, a sheer electromysticism which is well explained with reference to the works of Thomas Pynchon in Friedrich Kittler's essay, translated for the first time into English, which closes xxxxx. Further contributors include Hal Abelson, Leif Elggren, Jonathan Kemp, Aymeric Mansoux, and socialfiction.org.
