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.

Silvia Vajente, Adriano Sebastiani - Rossini: Ariettes italiannes for voice and guitar

Książki & Multimedia > Muzyka

Opis - The embodiment of grace and refinement, the Huit Ariettes for soprano from Rossini"s Soirées musicales are late pieces written after his enormous success in Paris with Guillaume Tell, and are the fruit of delightful musical evenings " or soirées "" held by the composer in his Parisian house during the 1820s. Contained within these beautiful melodies are deeper meanings and inspirations: each aria is like a personal meditation stimulated by states of mind, memories and emotions; reflections full of brilliant touches and effects. Based on texts by Pietro Metastasio and Count Carlo Pepoli, a variety of topics are covered " including a gondola ride and an orgy " often characterised by the irony and sarcasm befitting a composer retired from the highs and lows of the operatic stage. This is salon music at its most sophisticated. The Douze Ariettes italiennes are the perfect companion pieces to Rossini"s Soirées musicales. With many also based on texts by Metastasio, these pieces are arrangements of the most famous themes from Rossini"s operas, made by the Neapolitan composer and virtuoso guitarist Ferdinando Carulli. Distinctly Italian in feel, the simple melodic lines are elegant and graceful, with an intimate atmosphere fostered through the sensitive and expressive guitar accompaniment. Adriano Sebastiani made his recording debut on Brilliant Classics with the songs for voice and guitar of Louis Spohr (BC94274); here Adrian accompanies the soprano Silvia Vajente in her Brilliant Classics debut. A seasoned performer of this repertoire, Vajente is a past winner of the first Concorso Internazionale di Canto Barocco "Francesco Provenzale" (held in Naples) and the 10th Premio Bonporti International Early Music Competition (in Rovereto, Italy). The Ariettes Italiennes are 8 pieces taken from the Soirées Musicales, a collection of songs and arias written by the "pensioned" Rossini after his retirement as a highly successful opera composer. They are pure delight, each one written on a certain topic or emotion, full of humour, wit, nostalgia and old age irony and wisdom. The Douze Ariettes Italiennes are written by guitar composer and virtuoso Ferdinando Carulli, on popular and famous themes from Rossini?s operas, elegant and charming, salon music of high distinction and entertainment. Sung by soprano Silvia Vajente, with the right touch of beauty, sentiment and tongue-in-cheek, guitarist Adriano Sebastiani supplying the perfect instrumental foundation. Booklet contains full original song texts, liner notes and biographies.

Excerpt from Oil Lands in Indian Territory and Territory of Oklahoma: Hearings Before the Secretary of the Interior on Leasing of Oil Lands and Natural-Gas, Wells in Indian Territory and Territory of Oklahoma; May 8, 24, 25, and 29 and June 7 and 19, 1906 My Dear Mr. President: While talking with you in relation to the oil producers in Oklahoma and Indian Territory on Saturday evening you suggested that I write you on the subject on account of the limited time which we had for a discussion of the matter. Permit me to state first that I have no personal investments in oil or gas properties in Oklahoma or Indian Territory. I nevertheless am familiar with the subject of the development of the oil-producing sections of our country, as I have spent nearly all my life in the oil belt. Oil production, like every form of mining, necessarily involves large elements of risk. If it did not it could be handled on the same basis that most other legitimate undertakings are handled. It is not necessary for me to state that we are all interested in the largest development possible of the natural resources of our country. This can only be done by pursuing a liberal policy with the oil producer. I understand that my friend, Mr. Theodore N. Barnsdall, of Pittsburg, Pa., has been one of the principal developers of the oil and gas sections of the southwest. He organized the Kansas Natural Gas Company, which is now supplying about 350,000 people with gas at prices ranging from 25 to 30 cents per thousand. In the places where artificial gas was used it was sold at from $1 to $1.25 per thousand previous to the building of Mr. Barnsdall's line. The lower price enables the masses of the people, both rich and poor alike, to avail themselves of this luxury - and it certainly is a luxury, as I know from twenty-five years experience. The leases from which this gas is taken come down to the lines of Kansas and the Cherokee, and the average rental for gas wells paid to the landowners is about $125 per year. The company has large wells within one quarter of a mile of the Cherokee lines. The Union Natural Gas Company has over 200,000 acres of land in Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania, and pays an average annual rental of $100 per year. Mr. Barnsdall desires to build a line to St. Louis, Mo., to supply at least 150,000 consumers. Artificial gas there now costs 80 cents, containing only about 60 per cent of the heat units of natural gas. Of course you will readily understand that gas lines can not be financed for a city as large as St. Louis unless the company absolutely owns or controls from 150,000 to 200,000 acres of gas rights. The Secretary of the Interior has asked that 2ż per cent of the gas receipts be given to the Indians and that a meter be put on ever well. A reliable meter for a good gas well will cost $1,500.

Constitutional Principles of EU External Relations - 2826660371

Constitutional Principles of EU External Relations Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The volume explores the marked differences between the complex and rapidly changing legal organization of EU external relations and the EU's 'internal' constitutional order. The European Union is unique as a polity organized along federal lines but with fully fledged States as its component political entities. The tension between the self-conscious Member States and their constitutional relationship within the EU is especially pronounced in the foreign policy field, where they remain determined to assert their status as full subjects of the international order. This book explores how foreign policy fits within the constitutional structure of the EU, characterized by the division of external relations competences between the EU and the Member States ('the vertical axis'), and between the 'pillars' of which the Union is composed, in particular the division between the Community competences of the first pillar and the common foreign and security competences of the second pillar ('the horizontal axis').This is a study of the extent to which foreign policy is legally sui generis within the sui generis constitutional order of the EU, and of how the common foreign and security policy is in turn sui generis within the foreign policy structure of the Union. It provides both an exploration of the constitutional reality of EU foreign policy and theoretical analysis which suggests possibilities for reform.

Opus Dei Penguin

Literatura faktu

Opus Dei is the most controversial - and unknown - force in the Catholic Church.  Here, John L. Allen uncovers its real nature.  Accused of promoting a right-wing political agenda, of cult-like practices, and immortalized forever in the pages of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, Opus Dei is the most notorious, most talked about - but least known - religious organization of our time.  Granted unlimited access to those within its ranks, and with an investigative eye intent on uncovering closely guarded secrets, John L. Allen finally separates the myths from the facts:  the actual use of the cilice; the reason men and women remain separate; the true extent of Opus Dei's funds.  Built around a wealth of interviews with the heads of Opus Dei in the Vatican and in centres around the world, comparing the attitudes of current members with those of highly critical members and outsiders, Opus Dei is a portrait of a remarkably powerful organization, both inside and outside the Church. One of the most mysterious and controversial religious forces today, and immortalized in Dan Brown

Filthy Thirteen BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Since World War II, the American public has become fully aware of the exploits of the 101st Airborne Division, the paratroopers who led the Allied invasions into Nazi-held Europe. But within the ranks of the 101st, a sub-unit attained legendary status at the time, its reputation persisting among veterans over the decades. Primarily products of the Dustbowl and the Depression, the Filthy 13 grew notorious, even within the ranks of the elite 101st. Never ones to salute an officer, or take a bath, this squad became singular within the Screaming Eagles for its hard drinking, and savage fighting skill-and that was only in training. Just prior to the invasion of Normandy, a "Stars and Stripes" photographer caught U.S. paratroopers with heads shaved into Mohawks, applying war paint to their faces. Unknown to the American public at the time, these men were the Filthy 13. After parachuting behind enemy lines in the dark hours before D-Day, the Germans got a taste of the reckless courage of this unit - except now the men were fighting with Tommy guns and explosives, not just bare knuckles. In its spearhead role, the 13 suffered heavy casualties, some men wounded and others blown to bits. By the end of the war 30 men had passed through the squad. Throughout the war, however, the heart and soul of the Filthy 13 remained a survivor named Jake McNiece, a half-breed Indian from Oklahoma - the toughest man in the squad and the one who formed its character. McNiece made four combat jumps, was in the forefront of every fight in northern Europe, yet somehow never made the rank of PFC. The survivors of the Filthy 13 stayed intact as a unit until the Allies finally conquered Nazi Germany. Over 20,000 copiessold of the hardcover edition.

Professional K2 Łblackpearl] Wiley

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

K2 blackpearl and the K2 platform is a large, powerful, 'game-changing' application platform built on Microsoft technologies. Understanding it from top to bottom would be a great task for a single person, which is why we have gathered more than a dozen authors to supply you with the information to successfully transform your company into a process-oriented, efficient business that can grow with the K2 platform. Since this is the first book on K2 blackpearl, you will find a broad range of topics in this book, from the market in which K2 blackpearl is aimed to the architecture of the platform, from how to approach process design to developing your own custom user manager. The first part of the book is meant for everyone and provides an understanding of K2 blackpearl and where it fits in the marketplace. It is included to provide a framework for thinking about various aspects of process-driven applications, including how they differ from business process management techniques; identifying processes in your company to automate, the different pieces that make up a process; measuring the success of your efforts; and finally shifting your company's culture in the direction of process efficiency. This section may be the only section you need to read if you are sponsoring a process improvement effort in your company. If you are responsible for leading the effort, make sure to read Chapters 3 and 4. The other parts are meant to provide details on how to effectively deploy and use K2 blackpearl and include a broad range of topics. Read what you are most interested in, but also make sure to read Chapter 8, which will give you a great foundation to start designing processes with K2 blackpearl. Chapter 14 is also recommended for everyone because it provides an overview of the available K2 Designers and how you can share projects among them. If you are a developer, you may be tempted to flip through the book looking for code, and you will find some, but we also recommend reading much of the rest of the book to learn how the API and the K2 platform extensions fit within the overall process-driven application environment. Pay particular attention to Chapter 22 and the Appendix, which may save you hours of coding or give you a no-code solution to something that you may have thought would take hundreds of lines of code to accomplish. If you are an administrators, focus on Parts II and IV, but also take a look at the other chapters to gain an understanding of how your users will be using K2. K2 blackpearl is the main subject of this book, although we devote an entire chapter, Chapter 23, to the add-on product K2 connect to give you an understanding of how to bring SAP data into your processes. We also talk a bit about K2 blackpoint, particularly in the SharePoint chapters. Since K2 blackpoint is built on the K2 blackpearl foundation, many of the same concepts apply to that product as well, but we do not point out the differences between K2 blackpearl and K2 blackpoint. We recommend that you approach this book in parts and perhaps read or reference each part differently. If you are working on a team, each member of the team may find one part more interesting to them than the other sections; that is expected and is how we designed the book. Part I, 'Introduction to K2 blackpearl and Process-Driven Applications': The first four chapters discuss what K2 blackpearl is, how the applications you can design may or may not fit the business process management (BPM) model, how to go about identifying and designing processes, and last how to measure results and shift the culture of your company to a more process-oriented business. Part II, 'Architecture and Installation Options for K2 blackpearl': Chapters 5 and 6 will get you started. Installing the K2 blackpearl components is a necessary step before you can start designing processes, so in these two chapters you will gain an understanding of all of the pieces of the platform, the architecture, and the supporting technology, as well as ideas on how to plan out your development, QA/staging, and production environments. Part III, 'K2 blackpearl Process Planning and Design Essentials': Chapters 7 through 14 give you a ton of information about how to design, build, extend, and generally work with the main pieces of the platform. From a step-by-step tutorial on building your first process to how to share processes across the different K2 Designers, you'll learn all of what you need to really get ramped up. Pay particular attention to Chapters 8 and 11, which cover the basic things you need to know about process planning and the various concepts of process design with K2 blackpearl and then provide an in-depth view of the available forms technologies that you can use for user interaction with your processes. If you are particularly interested in SharePoint, make sure to read Chapters 12 and 13. Part IV, 'Administration of K2 blackpearl': Chapters 15 through 20 offer an administrator's view into the platform. Things like disaster recovery, logging, security, and using the K2 Workspace for notifications, reports, assigning process permissions, and recovering from errors are all key aspects of the platform that you or someone in your company will have to understand. This section gives you everything you need to know and probably more, including how to build your own user manager to plug into the K2 platform. Part V, 'Advanced K2 blackpearl Concepts and Platform Extensions': The last part includes Chapters 21 through 23, and these chapters are there to round out the discussion of the platform. You'll find information about using the Event Bus to surface outside events to the K2 server and a discussion of tailoring the platform and your processes to your particular needs by going beyond the default settings of the components that you learned about in Chapter 8. Finally you'll learn about the K2 connect platform extension, which allows data from SAP (and eventually any system for which a WCF LOB adapter is released) to be used within your processes. There are some pieces of this book that you can sit down and read without needing a computer or access to K2 blackpearl at all, but much of this book requires you to have access to K2 blackpearl and the supporting applications as well. Whenever we talk about designing processes, we do so in the context of the K2 Designer for Visual Studio. To install this component you will need Visual Studio 2005. For the server pieces of the platform, you will need a Windows Server 2003 environment (virtual or otherwise) and the additional components required by the K2 server.

EU Human Rights Policies - 2834691422

EU Human Rights Policies Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Despite recent constitutional arrangements, human rights remain an ambiguous and complex subject in the European Union. Human rights issues may have become increasingly relevant to the life of the EU over the past thirty years but there has been an institutional reluctance to mould a unified human rights policy worthy of the name. Nevertheless, the EU's practices have not been constructed randomly: they have evolved within discrete policy realms along coherent narrative lines. From the arguably mythical basis that the EU was founded upon a general principle of respect for human rights; policies and practices have developed along two distinct paths. Internally, within the EU, human rights are contingent. Scrutiny is erratic and even casual, and enforcement is left to the courts and independent agencies. Externally, in the EU's interactions with non-members, however, the story is very different: human rights are broad in concept. Collective notions of rights are accepted and promoted. Scrutiny can be intrusive and effective, and systems of enforcement, increasingly severe in scope and strength, have been applied. This bifurcation has direct implications for the EU's constitutional structure and its future human rights activities. It suggests that, through human rights language, conditions for conflict rather than integration have arisen, and that a system of double standards has been instituted. Williams therefore argues that the EU's claims to a credible human rights policy are suspect. This book examines the nature and scope of the bifurcation and explains its origins and development. In doing so it questions orthodox interpretations and provides a radical new reading of the EU's human rights law and practice. At its heart, the book claims that without a fundamental reappraisal of the basis upon which the EU responds to human rights, it will remain plagued by this ironical condition.

ABC of the English Opening. A Complete Repertoire for White, DVD-ROM ChessBase

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

It is easy to understand why the English opening is very popular at all levels, from club player up to Grandmaster level. The variations are less forcing and superior chess skill is required to outwit your opponents in the middlegame. In the English, white plays 1.c4 and fianchettos the white kings bishop to g2. Like all good chess openings, this fights for control of the centre and posts the English Bishop on the long diagonal g2-a8. Many people view the opening as rather dull, but this is a misnomer-in fact, there are many sharp pawn sacrifices and attacking lines which have been found in recent times which give the opening some bite. As such, the English Opening is an opening that can suit a wide range of playing styles. Success in the English is based upon understanding the plans and ideas available within this interesting opening. The games in this DVD will provide with exactly that-the armoury to play the English Opening as white with confidence!

Andy Goldsworthy BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

ANDY GOLDSWORTHY: POCKET GUIDE A pocket-sized guide to the art of Andy Goldsworthy, Britian's foremost sculptor of the natural world. This book tells you everything you need to know about Andy Goldsworthy and his artworks. EXTRACT FROM CHAPTER 5 Andy Goldsworthy works with the natural world, and within nature. He uses natural materials in natural shapes and forms set in natural contexts. Goldsworthy takes his cue from nature: as Jan Dibbets put it in 1969: 'I realized that if you want to use nature, you have to derive the appropriate structure from nature too'. Nature may be the starting-point but, as we'll see, the endpoint - art - is entirely cultural and not something you'll ever find in the natural world. Andy Goldsworthy seems to be a particularly gentle and sensitive artist, compared to many sculptors and land artists: he stitches together leaves to form lines (which're often placed in water, or over branches), or makes circular slabs of snow, or entwines twigs in an arc. He creates a delicate spiral of chestnut leaves, called Autumn Horn (1986); he pins bright yellow dandelions on willowherb stalks in a circle, on bluebells (1987); he makes lines and cairns of pebbles; a horizontal line of red sumach leaves was pinned to a willow (at Storm King Art Center in 1998); he rubs red stones to stain rockpools; he pins leaves to tree trunks; he fashions a zigzag line of hogweed stalks along a fallen elm tree (2002); he makes hollow, circular structures, recalling igloos, from slate, leaves, driftwood and bracken; he creates long wavy ridges in Arizonan and Australian desert sand; he throws sand and sticks in the air and photographs the moment; he builds arches, globes, hollow spheres, slabs, spires, spirals and star-shapes out of snow and ice. Very impressive it all is. The sculptures made of sticks, for instance, stuck together in an arch, or a line, reflected in the mirror-like water of Derwent Water in Cumbria in 1988, are indeed wonderful. The sculptures exude tranquillity, an early morning calm. AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY William Malpas has written books on Richard Long and land art, as well as three books on Andy Goldsworthy, including the forthcoming Andy Goldsworthy In America. Malpas's books on Richard Long and Andy Goldsworthy are the only full-length studies of these artists available.

Earth Features and Their Meaning Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Earth Features and Their Meaning: An Introduction to Geology for the Student and the General Reader The series of readings contained in the present volume give in somewhat expanded form the substance of a course of illustrated lectures which has now for several years been delivered each semester at the University of Michigan. The keynote of the course may be found in the dominant characteristics of the different earth features and the geological processes which have been betrayed in the shaping of them. Such a geological examination of landscape is replete with fascinating revelations, and it lends to the study of Nature a deep meaning which cannot but enhance the enjoyment of her varied aspects. That there is a real place for such a cultural study of geology within the University is believed to be shown by the increasing number of students who have elected the work. Even more than in former years the American travels afar by car or steamship, and the earths surface features in all their manifold diversity are thus one after the other unrolled before him. The thousands who each year cross the Atlantic to roam over European countries may by historical, literary, or artistic studies prepare themselves to derive an exquisite pleasure as they visit places identified with past achievement of one form or another. Yet the Channel coast, the gorge of the Ehine, the glaciers of Switzerland, and the wild scenery of Norway or Scotland have each their fascinating story to tell of a history far more remote and varied. To read this history, the runic characters in which it is written must first of all be mastered; for in every landscape there are strong individual lines of character such as the pen artist would skillfully extract for an outline sketch. Such character profiles are often many times repeated in each landscape, and in them we have a key to the historical record. An object of the present readings has thus been to enable the student to himself pick out in each landscape these more significant lines and so read directly from Nature.

ANDY GOLDSWORTHY IN AMERICA This study looks at the contemporary British artist, Andy Goldsworthy, and his work in the United States of America. Goldsworthy's presence in America grew steadily with a series of exhibitions beginning in the late Nineties with the Storm King Wall and show. This was followed by: Cornell University in 2000; the Three Cairns show and installations in 2002-03; Austin Museum in 2003; the Garden of Stone and Stone Houses in New York City in 2003-04; and Roof in Washington in 2005. There are a number of essential sites to visit for Andy Goldsworthy's art in America: (1) the slate mounds in Washington's National Gallery of Art; (2) Garden of Stones in New York's Museum of Jewish Heritage; (3) the cracked stones at the de Young Museum in San Francisco; (4) the Storm King Wall in New York; and (5) Three Cairns in Des Moines, Iowa. Fully illustrated, including images of the American landscape, and Goldsworthy's contemporaries. Includes photographs taken by the author of Andy Goldsworthy's works in America, including in Washington, DC, San Francisco, New York State and Iowa. Bibliography and notes.

He creates a delicate spiral of chestnut leaves, called Autumn Horn (1986); he pins bright yellow dandelions on willowherb stalks in a circle, on bluebells (1987); he makes lines and cairns of pebbles; a horizontal line of red sumach leaves was pinned to a willow (at Storm King in 1998); he rubs red stones to stain rockpools; he pins leaves to tree trunks; he fashions a zigzag line of hogweed stalks along a fallen elm tree (2002); he makes hollow, circular structures, recalling igloos, from slate, leaves, driftwood and bracken; he creates long wavy ridges in Arizonan and Australian desert sand; he throws sand and sticks in the air and photographs the moment.

Excerpt: Bijelo dugme (trans. White Button) is a highly influential former Yugoslav rock band, based in Sarajevo. Active between 1974 and 1989, it is widely considered to have been the most popular band ever to exist in former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and one of the most important acts of the Yugoslav rock scene. The band history begins in 1969. At the time, the future leader of Bijelo dugme, Goran Bregovic was the bass guitarist for the band BeStije. He was spotted by the Kodeksi (trans. Codexes) vocalist Zeljko Bebek. As Kodeksi needed a bass guitarist, on Bebek's suggestion Bregovic became the member of the band. The band's lineup consisted of Ismeta Dervoz (vocals), Edo Bogeljic (guitar), Zeljko Bebek (rhythm guitar) and vocals), Goran Bregovic (bass guitar), and Luciano Paganotto (drums). After performing in Dubrovnik (before these performances the only female member, Ismeta Dervoz left the band) Kodeksi were hired to perform in a club in Naples. After two months the band's guitarist Edo Bogeljic returned to Sarajevo, and Bregovic switched to guitar. Local Italian musician was brought in to play the bass, but after he quit too, Bebek called up old friend Zoran Redzic. Redzic in turn brought along Milic VukaSinovic as replacement on drums for Paganotto who also quit in the meantime. VukaSinovic brought new musical influences along the lines of what Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath were doing at the time. Additionally, he convinced the rest of the band on incorporating the new sound into their set. Within two weeks of his arrival, Kodeksi were fired from all the places they were playing. The foursome of Bebek, Bregovic, Redzic and VukaSinovic stayed on the island of Capri. In 1970 they relocated back to Naples. At this time the other three members made Bebek stop playing the rhythm guitar reasoning that it is not fashionable any longer. Bebek also h...
