The Crew

The Crew is Dougie Brimson's first novel, following a series of books on the subject of football hooliganism written with his brother Eddy. Once again, the territory covered relates to the violence that surrounds football. This time, however, things aren't for real--still, the characters and story line seem real enough, especially for those familiar with any of the tales told in the author's factual volumes. Marrying the football violence theme with a well-established genre, Brimson turns his tale into a thriller. Using the master hooligan and the police detective as counterpoints, he weaves a believable and gripping story line, truly guaranteed to keep the pages turning. With the villain of the piece painted black from the word go, the chase is always on. What follows is well thought out, though the ending does not necessarily deliver all the promise of earlier chapters. Perhaps Brimson is just waiting to launch a sequel. Nonetheless, even if a tale of a group of hooligans travelling to watch England in Rome might cut a little close to the bone, The Crew will undoubtedly provide much enjoyment for fans of suspense, albeit in a new context, as well as those whose somewhat more macabre interest has been held by the author's previous books. --Trevor Crowe

How to Meet a Project Deadline with Scrum in 7 Simple Steps for the Business, Agile Project Manager, Scrum Master, Product Owner, and Development Team

The scrum framework is a simple framework for delivering projects. Although it is targeted towards complex projects, its principles can be used to ensure that any project or task is delivered on time. In scrum, delivering a project "on-time" means that those involved commit to and deliver a set of features by the end of a defined period called a sprint. When the product owner is happy that enough "sprints-worth" of features have been delivered he or she can make a decision to release the product. Delivering on commitments regularly gives confidence that a release is on track.

The challenge in delivering each sprint "on-time" comes from the fact that each team and individual comes with their own characteristics and each sprint comes with its own challenges. Therefore, there is a high degree of unpredictability involved in meeting sprint commitments.

KILLER FAMILIES: TRUE CRIME: MURDER BY DADS, MOMS, KIDS & SPOUSES (MURDER IN THE FAMILY Book 1)

KILLER FAMILIES

MURDER IN THE FAMILY

The family home is supposed to be a place where family members find a safe haven from the stress of outside life. A place where they feel protected and loved. Yet for many this is simply not the case.

The true stories in this short book demonstrate that the family environment can be a very dangerous place indeed. Not just for children suffering from child abuse, but also for mothers, fathers, wives and husbands. In the United States, one of the most treacherous places for a woman is in her own home. Women may be afraid of strangers, but it's a husband, a lover, a boyfriend, or someone they know who is most likely to hurt them and they are at the highest risk of suffering violence or murder when they are divorcing or separating from a partner. Men too can suffer abuse from their wife or partner but the difference in physical size and strength puts a woman at greater risk than a man.

For children, the greatest danger is not an unknown stranger, but their immediate families.

Is your family safe?

Lesbian: Seducing the Tomboy

It was an insanely busy day at the lingerie shop. The kind that made Taylor consider quitting. First, she had to deal with an annoying customer who took forever to decide on a color of the bustier she wanted, then it was a rush of customers who came in seconds before closing.

"I need something in hot pink that makes my hips look slimmer," one customer demanded.

Another said, "This teddy you sold me makes my butt look big."

A third customer loudly chimed in, "Do you have anything that will make me look like Jennifer Lawrence?"

In the middle of the mad rush, the phone rang.

"Sandy's Sweet Shop, can I help you?" she answered.

"Yes, you can help me," the man answered. "You can hurry up. I've been waiting five minutes for you outside."

It was Brad, Taylor's fiance. His impatient groan was the last thing she needed in the middle of crazy day. "Sorry, honey. I got a rush just before closing. It could take five or maybe ten minutes for me to finish."

He sighed. "Fine. I just hope dinner at my parents' house hasn't gotten cold."

"I'm sure it'll be fine, I just - "

Jude the Obscure

Our Mutual Friend (Everyman's Library Classics)

In his last completed novel, published in 1864-5, Dicens confirmed his reputation as a story-teller of genius while extending the sphere of his imagination to new worlds. Like all Dickens' novels, OUR MUTUAL FRIEND weaves together many stories, uniting them in the bizarre symbolism of the wealth which derives from a rubbish tip. With all the energy of his earlier novels, this one has an extra resonance and depth of shade.

Introducing consciousness

Empathy

Our society functions by separating us from each other: almost as soon as we're born, we are taught to divide people into groups and see some as more deserving (and more human) than others. Everything from massive inequality to war depends on this process of categorisation and dehumanisation.

In this provocative, inspiring piece of writing, Raoul Martinez asks how and why our empathy is controlled, and argues for a very different world - one of deeper understanding and indiscriminate compassion.

The Simple Case For Going Vegan

This essay aims to show that we are morally obliged to go vegan by our own core values. The essay is divided into two parts, where the first part presents a simple argument for veganism based on an ethical principle that we all hold valid, while the second part argues that the only reason we are not vegan is that we are speciesists, and that this is no more justifiable than supporting other forms of discrimination such as racism or sexism.

Conflict, Security and the Reshaping of Society (Open Access): The Civilization of War (Routledge Studies in Liberty and Security)

Examines the effect of contemporary wars (such as the 'War on Terror') on civil life at a global level. This title shows how 'war' and 'security' tend to exchange targets and forms of action as well as personnel (for instance, the use of private contractors in wars and of military experts in the 'struggle for security') in modern society.

Putin's Russia: How It Rose, How It Is Maintained, and How It Might End

In this groundbreaking collection, nine of Russia's leading scholars and experts describe and analyze some of the Vladimir Putin regime's key structural strengths and weaknesses and look at their implications for both the present and the future. As far as the regime's fault lines are concerned, the evidence presented by the authors shows no reversal, or even narrowing, of these structural dysfunctions in Putin's third presidential term.

Topics covered here include Russia's political economy, political geography, and politics of federalism; the regime, ideology, public opinion, and legitimacy; and potential defeat and radicalization of civil society. Emerging in these pages is a finely textured portrait of a society rife in complexities, contradictions, and postponed but looming crises.

This book is about how and who is telling stories in the digital age. It's an educational resource and a brief introduction into various topics.

The first couple of chapters deal with some of the history and the reasoning behind mankind's hunger for stories. The next three chapters discuss online communities and storytellers (podcasters, YouTubers, Viners and writers). The book finishes off with a couple chapters on memes, storytelling techniques, transmedia storytelling and ways to monetize content online.

The Awakening (Wisehouse Pocket Classics - Original Authoritative Edition 1899)

The Awakening, originally titled A Solitary Soul, is a novel by Kate Chopin, first published in 1899. Set in New Orleans and on the Louisiana Gulf coast at the end of the 19th century, the plot centers on Edna Pontellier and her struggle to reconcile her increasingly unorthodox views on femininity and motherhood with the prevailing social attitudes of the turn-of-the-century American South. It is one of the earliest American novels that focuses on women's issues without condescension. It is also widely seen as a landmark work of early feminism, generating a mixed reaction from contemporary readers and critics.

The novel's blend of realistic narrative, incisive social commentary, and psycho?logical complexity makes The Awakening a precursor of American modernist literature; it prefigures the works of American novelists such as William Faulkner and Ernest Hemingway and echoes the works of contemporaries such as Edith Wharton and Henry James. It can also be considered among the first Southern works in a tradition that would culminate with the modern master?pieces of Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Eudora Welty, Katherine Anne Porter, and Tennessee Williams.

President Barack Obama: The Kindle Singles Interview (Kindle Single)

In this Kindle Singles Interview, President Barack Obama decried the "change in culture" that has changed our view of the American Dream. "There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous," the President said. "Kids weren't monitoring everyday what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success." He addressed the jobs issue from a personal perspective, reflecting on how his own life might have been different had he not experienced success in politics. "I could picture myself being a good teacher," the President mused.



In the interview, which took place on July 30, 2013, at an Amazon facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Obama discussed the increasing need for government programs that can actually make a difference. Sticking close to his standard message, he spoke frankly about the increasing polarization of American politics since the Great Recession and Republican Party intransigence over his agenda. On a personal note, he reflected that he and First Lady Michelle Obama are constantly reminding their daughters of the "slightly unreal environment that they're in," as children of privilege in a world constrained by unemployment and recession.



The interview was conducted by David Blum. Blum works for Amazon as the editor of Kindle Singles. He began his career as a staff reporter for The Wall Street Journal, and has been the editor-in-chief of The Village Voice, the New York Press and 02138 Magazine. He was previously a writer and editor at The New York Times Magazine, and a contributing editor at New York and Esquire magazines. He has written two books: "Flash in the Pan: The Life and Death of an American Restaurant" (1992), and "Tick...Tick...Tick...: The Long Life & Turbulent Times of 60 Minutes" (2004). He received his B.A. degree in English literature at the University of Chicago.

Inner Calm Buddha Pt1: My Chakra Journal

There was a point in my life when I used to feel like I would forever be a victim. I was also dealing with separation anxiety. My traumatic experiences caused me to do inappropriate things to others and allowing others to do inappropriate things to me. I once thought that I have moved on by burying my past and my pain.



I did not realize that I was feeling resentful, grieving, regretful, guilty and ashamed of myself. I used to feel like I was full of sin, I felt like God was disappointed in me and that later on, I would eventually go to hell. No matter what I did, I could not fill in my empty hole that was in my heart. Ignoring my past and my pain caused me to be the enemy to myself.



The journey inwards or looking at my reflection helped me see that I was living my life in fear and in denial. I thought it was everyone else outside of me that was causing hell in my life; I wanted to get out of bad karma. So I asked myself who is the enemy then? How does a person get out of self-hate, regret, pain and suffering?



If heaven is real then I will find it on earth? Can I ever truly heal and let go to experience self-liberation? I began to invest in self growth by many years of eternal self-actualization. This is how I began to see that inner peace is attainable. I realized that I had to take responsibility for my own happiness.

British Muslim Soldier

It isn't nice but you're an animal, so you can do it, dressed in green and brown and black waiting to be attacked and smiling because you had bullets for teeth.

Adnan Sarwar, a Pakistani boy from Burnley, joined the British Army - the White Man's Army. Why did he do it? To prove he was as white as his friends? For Queen and Country? Or to work out who he was - British, Muslim or a Soldier? Perhaps he could be all three.

'British Muslim Soldier' is Adnan's journey through the battlegrounds of war, race and identity, facing up to the often brutal realities of these fraught warzones. There is racism, family ties, tedious routine, enemies and torture. But what Adnan's story really comes down to is love - love for his family, for his fellow squaddies - and a deep-rooted sense of identity and belonging.

...when did these clothes fit so well? When did Corporal become an older brother and when did the army become a mother? When did I become a British soldier?

The Writings of Thomas Paine: Collected and Edited by Moncure Daniel Conway: Volume 2

WHEN Thomas Paine sailed from America for France, in April, 1787, he was perhaps as happy a man as any in the world. His most intimate friend, Jefferson, was Minister at Paris, and his friend Lafayette was the idol of France. His fame had preceded him, and he at once became, in Paris, the centre of the same circle of savants and philosophers that had surrounded Franklin. His main reason for proceeding at once to Paris was that he might submit to the Academy of Sciences his invention of an iron bridge, and with its favorable verdict he came to England, in September. He at once went to his aged mother at Thetford, leaving with a publisher (Ridgway), his " Prospects on the Rubicon." He next made arrangements to patent his bridge, and to construct at Rotherham the large model of it exhibited on Paddington Green, London. He was welcomed in England by leading statesmen, such as Lansdowne and Fox, and above all by Edmund Burke, who for some time had him as a guest at Beaconsfield, and drove him about in various parts of the country. He had not the slightest revolutionary purpose, either as regarded England or France. Towards Louis XVI. he felt only gratitude for the services he had rendered America, and towards George III. he felt no animosity whatever. His four months' sojourn in Paris had convinced him that there was approaching a reform of that country after the American model, except that the Crown would be preserved, a compromise he approved, provided the throne should not be hereditary. Events in France travelled more swiftly than he had anticipated, and Paine was summoned by Lafayette, Condorcet, and others, as an adviser in the formation of a new constitution.

The Works of Hrotsvit of Gandersheim (Women in Print)

Historical assessments of Hrotsvit of Gandersheim are liberally adorned with the word "first." After all, she was the first major medieval woman author, the first German woman writer in print, the first post-classical playwright, as well as the first German to write a literary work on the Faust-theme, and she is sometimes said to have been the first woman historian.

These are landmarks to be sure. Yet Hrotsvit's place in cultural history is even more significant than such an impressive number of firsts might indicate, for she has reemerged to become a living part of European literature, a singular phenomenon for a tenth-century author. She is not only the earliest writer, of either gender, to have a secure place in the German literary canon, but also the only author from her period whose literary works continue to inspire generation after generation of fascinated readers from disparate cultures. Although her writings did not circulate widely in the Middle Ages, they became a sensation from the moment they were discovered in 1493. Her plays and poetic narratives began to attract widespread attention in the twentieth century and are now prominent fixtures in the American college curriculum. Her very name, which she confidently and aptly translated as "the powerful sound from Gandersheim" ("clamor validus Gandeshemensis"), portended her literary success.

Disappointingly few aspects of Hrotsvit's life are known. Apart from comments scattered among the introductions to her poetry, there are no reliable documentary sources for reconstructing her biography. Occasionally, this has provided license for odd, sometimes sexist and even misogynist, suggestions, especially in older scholarship, about her life experiences. Most famously, a nineteenth-century scholar argued that Hrotsvit never actually existed but was a literary hoax perpetrated by Conrad Celtis, Johannes Reuchlin, and other early humanists. Although this dubious charge was taken seriously for many decades, it has been definitively (and repeatedly) debunked. In fact, intensive scholarship over the last two centuries has pieced together a secure, albeit sparse, account of the likely circumstance of her life. Her floruit dates--ca. 935 until ca. 973--have excellent evidence. She identifies herself as a canoness of Abbey of Gandersheim (Saxony, Germany) during the rule of Abbess Gerberga II (940-1001; abbess as of 959), a niece of Emperor Otto I. Hrotsvit also helpfully observes that her abbess is younger than she, thus allowing scholars to place her birth approximately in 935. Several of her works mention well-documented historical events, such as the papal coronation of Emperor Otto I in 962 and the coronation of Otto II, as co-emperor, in 967. Her final work, a brief epic on the history of Abbey of Gandersheim, was completed while Otto I was still alive, thereby indicating that her literary activity, at least as far as the surviving works are concerned, ended before his death in 973.

A Categorised List of 800 Books about Irish Women (Irish Reading Lists Book 3)

This is a bare bones categorised list of approximately 800 books about Irish women. Also included is a list of articles about Irish women. The author/compiler hopes the book will be useful for academics and journalists, as well as the general public. The book is divided into 25 categories, such as "Education" and "Medicine/Health/Science". Moreover, many of the categories are divided into subcategories.

The list is not complete. The compiler intends to keep adding to it over the coming months and years.

There are also appendices with information about various other resources relating to Irish women.

The compiler has put together three further Irish-related bibliographical lists.

Some Reflections upon Marriage

Throughout her life, in her personal relationships as well as in her role as a public intellectual, the English thinker Mary Astell (1666-1731) supported women, wrote to and for women, and, to the greatest extent possible, moved from advocacy to action on their behalf. In Some Reflections upon Marriage (London, 1700), Astell focused her attention on the institution of marriage. For Astell, marriage is a divinely ordained state, a "Christian institution," the only way to perpetuate humankind. But, she asks, "if marriage be such a blessed state, how comes it . . . there are so few happy marriages?" When her analysis is complete, there is not much to recommend the institution, at least from a woman's perspective. Marriage is necessary since it represents "the only honorable way of continuing mankind." But, as Astell observes, the woman who marries "ought to lay it down for an indisputable maxim that her husband must govern absolutely and entirely and that she has nothing else to do but to please and obey." Her radical conclusion? If she cannot accept marriage "as it truly is," then a woman might choose not to marry: perhaps, Astell suggests, "it is not good for a woman to marry." Despite the importance of Some Reflections upon Marriage, no previous edition has addressed the complications of Astell's prose style, and none has added the kind of glossing and notes that will assist student readers in their engagement with her distinctive voice. This edition, designed for classroom use, provides an ample introduction, a carefully modernized text, helpful glosses and notes, and a useful bibliography with references for further reading.

Focusing on place across health, literary and historical studies, art history, communications, media studies, sociology, and education allows for investigations of how girlhood is positioned in relation to interdisciplinary and transnational research methodologies, media environments, geographic locations, historical and social spaces. This book offers a comprehensive reading on how girlhood scholars construct and deploy research frameworks that directly engage girls in the research process.

World War 2 Sailor Stories: Tales from Our Warriors at Sea: Volume 33 (The Stories of WW2)

So much time is spent discussing the heroics and battles fought on the ground and in the air during World War II and the battles fought in the water are nearly forgotten. They were real and they were brutal, often resulting in the loss of thousands of lives in a matter of minutes. The battles on the high seas were just another front that we had to win in order to win the war. .First take a look into the merchant marines. Contrary to their name, they were not military men but they gave their lives throughout the war just the same. Find out who they were and why so many lives depended on the precious cargo they carried. In a time when racism was not only prevalent but accepted as part of life, read about two of the African American men who rose to the challenge and went beyond the ordinary. Find out what was done, and what wasn't, to honor these heroes. Were their acts of bravery downplayed because of the color of their skin or were they given their due reward? Finally, venture into the true horrors that await some sailors at sea. Drowning isn't the only worry. Death come slowly to some or is a quick mercy for others. Read about the nightmarish horrors that the men on the USS Indianapolis endured. Immortalized in pop culture, this ship's disaster is a true story steeped in some of the greatest horrors that you can imagine. Find out what happened to the beleaguered Captain. Why did a ship that started with 1,196 men only bring home 317? From high adventure to the depths of horror, the sailors of World War II have a story to tell. Pick up this book today and see what it is for yourself. Comments From Other Readers "This book really takes me back to my childhood. I was in grammar school when the war broke out.
