Planeta Terra, 15.000 anos atrás. Uma portentosa missão estelar, vinda de um longínquo sistema, aterrissa na Terra, com um grande projeto de mineração. Durante os trabalhos, ao mesmo tempo em que se encanta com a exuberante fauna, flora e estabelece relações com os habitantes locais, os homo sapiens, também contraria interesses dos primeiros visitantes e reais descobridores do planeta, estabelecidos há pelo menos 500.000 anos, e que não ficaram nem um pouco satisfeitos com aquela intromissão. As coisas mudam drasticamente com a chegada de uma terceira civilização, cujo propósito de colonização, leva a uma guerra de proporções nucleares contra os segundos visitantes, por quem são duramente derrotados e expulsos do planeta. Então, vem o Grande Dilúvio que destrói tudo, e todos. Evento natural, divino ou criminoso? O fato é que, a partir deste cataclismo trágico, uma federação planetária é criada, e passa a impor, com mão de ferro, lei e ordem na Via Láctea. As civilizações mais fracas estavam enfim protegidas e, entre elas, a humanidade; que por conta desta proteção, passa a evoluir por conta própria e sem mais nenhuma interferência externa. A vigilância era efetiva e a punição, implacável. No entanto, as civilizações subjugadas juntam forças, e conseguem, finalmente, quebrar o jugo federativo. E agora, até que um dos lados prevaleça, não haverá mais paz na galáxia. E a Terra, em perigo, está no epicentro desta, que será a mais mortal e definitiva guerra dos mundos.

A edição definitiva do único romance de Otto Lara Resende. Inclui posfácio de Ana Miranda. Laurindo Flores é o zelador do Asilo da Misericórdia, na fictícia Lagedo, pequena cidade em Minas Gerais. Em seu diário, ele descreve seu dia a dia num casarão condenado, prestes a desabar, cuidando de crianças órfãs. Ao mesmo tempo que é capaz de praticar gestos covardes, e até mesmo atrozes, o protagonista alimenta o sonho de apagar seus erros e alcançar a redenção. "Poderoso e estranho", com linguagem "habilmente construída pelo romancista", nas palavras do professor Antonio Candido, O braço direito é um romance magistral. Otto Lara Resende convida o leitor a mergulhar nos pensamentos de um personagem tacanho e conhecer um universo engenhosamente lapidado, feito de ressentimento e insignificância. O volume inclui posfácio da escritora Ana Miranda, que trabalhou arduamente, junto com o autor, na revisão final do livro.
Anina Toskani erzählt die wahre Geschichte der dramatischen Ereignisse um ihre Mutter Deli, die glaubt, sie müsse sich umbringen. Seit einer OP in Vollnarkose ist dieser merkwürdige Ohrwurm aufgetaucht. Verzweifelt im Kampf gegen Alzheimer Dämonen auf der alten grünen Velourcouch im Wohnzimmer, gerät Anina in soziale Isolation und Burnout. Jede Hilfe wird von den unsichtbaren und heimtückischen Gegnern aus dem Feld geschlagen: Pflegedienst & Putzfrau werfen das Handtuch, Ärzte, Ambulanz & Psychiater sind machtlos. Anina verliert durch Lungenentzündung täglich Gewicht und zuletzt ihren Job. Sie erforscht alles, was irgendwie nützen könnte, greift nach jedem Strohhalm. Zu guter Letzt, stößt sie im Internet auf Braco aus Zagreb. Fasziniert von seinem 'magnetischen Blick', spürt sie, dass darin etwas wirkt, wo menschliche Mittel versagen. Trotz allem versuchen die Alzheimer Dämonen weiterhin, nicht nur Deli's, sondern auch ihr Leben zu zerstören - wie schwarze Magie. Anina bleibt nichts, als den Himmel um Beistand anzuflehen und auf Bracos Blick zu vertrauen. Zu Ivicas Geburtstag fliegt sie mit Deli überraschend nach Zagreb. Von da an geschehen Zeichen und Wunder, bis Deli, erlöst, die Reise ins Jenseits antritt.
Women remain woefully underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Negative stereotypes about women in these fields are pervasive, rooted in the debunked claim that women have less aptitude than men in science and math. While some TV series present portrayals that challenge this generalization, others reinforce troubling biases—sometimes even as writers and producers attempt to champion women in STEM. This collection of new essays examines numerous popular series, from children’s programs to primetime shows, and discusses the ways in which these narratives inform cultural ideas about women in STEM.

Em 1993 Ana foi baleada e declarada morta por trinta minutos. Nestes trinta minutos Ana foi ao paraíso, conheceu Deus e pediu para voltar à terra para mudar sua vida e contar sua história. Uma incrível história de vida, morte e superação. ———— Meu nome é Ana. Em 1993 fui baleada e morri por trinta minutos. Trinta minutos que mudaram minha vida completamente. Fui ao paraíso, conheci Deus, e pude escolher se queria voltar à Terra ou ficar no céu com meu Pai. Escolhi voltar para cuidar dos meus filhos, mudar minha vida e contar minha história. Minha experiência mostra que há vida após a morte, e prova que Deus existe e nos ama, cuida e se importa com cada um de nós. "Um extraordinário relato que tocou meu coração de inúmeras formas." — Eric Williams "Ana, cientificamente não há explicação. Foi um milagre! Deus tem um propósito para sua vida." — Dra. Maria José
The pricing of goods, services, intangible property and financial instruments within a multi-divisional organization, particularly in regard to cross-border transactions, has emerged as one of the most contentious areas of international tax law. This is due in no small measure to the rise of transfer pricing regulations as governments seek to stem the flow of their tax revenue from their jurisdictions. This thoroughly practical work provides guidance on an array of critical transfer pricing issues. The guide’s relevance is further enhanced by the inclusion of country chapters covering domestic transfer pricing issues in a variety of key national jurisdictions.

The study of New Religious Movements (NRMs) is one of the fastest-growing areas of religious studies, and since the release of the first edition of The Oxford Handbook of New Religious Movements in 2003, the field has continued to expand and break new ground. In this all-new volume, James R. Lewis and Inga B. Tøllefsen bring together established and rising scholars to address an expanded range of topics, covering traditional religious studies topics such as "scripture," "charisma," and "ritual," while also applying new theoretical approaches to NRM topics. Other chapters cover understudied topics in the field, such as the developmental patterns of NRMs and subcultural considerations in the study of NRMs. The first part of this book examines NRMs from a social-scientific perspective, particularly that of sociology. In the second section, the primary factors that have put the study of NRMs on the map, controversy and conflict, are considered. The third section investigates common themes within the field of NRMs, while the fourth examines the approaches that religious studies researchers have taken to NRMs. As NRM Studies has grown, subfields such as Esotericism, New Age Studies, and neo-Pagan Studies have grown as distinct and individual areas of study, and the final section of the book investigates these emergent fields.

To make great animation, you need to know how to control a whole world: how to make a character, how to make that character live and be happy or sad. You need to create four walls around them, a landscape, the sun and moon - a whole life for them. You have to get inside that puppet and first make it live, then make it perform. Susannah Shaw provides the first truly practical introduction to the craft skills of model animation. This is a vital book in the development of model animation which, following the success of Aardman's first full-length film, Chicken Run, is now at the forefront of modern animation. Illustrated in full colour throughout you are shown step by step how to create successful model animation. Starting with some basic exercises, you will learn about developing a story, making models, creating set and props, the mechanics of movement, filming, postproduction and how to set about finding that elusive first job in a modern studio. Susannah Shaw is Programme Development Manager for the Animated Exeter festival. She was head of the Bristol Animation Course from 1996 to 2000 at the University of the West of England and former camera assistant at Aardman (working on 'A Close Shave' among other films).
The study of G-quadruplexes has emerged in recent years as an important focus of research in nucleic acids. This is now a rapidly growing area, not least because of its potential as a novel approach to cancer therapeutics, and there is much current activity on the design of quadruplex-selective small-molecule ligands and the study of their cellular effects. This timely publication gives a uniquely integrated view of quadruplex nucleic acids that will be a major resource in future drug-discovery strategies. Therapeutic Applications of Quadruplex Nucleic Acids provides a single comprehensive survey that describes and assesses recent advances in quadruplex therapeutics and targeting strategies. It also covers the underlying fundamentals of such topics as quadruplex structure, small-molecule recognition, biological roles of genomic quadruplexes, and quadruplex informatics. Written by a world leader in this field, this book is a vital resource for researchers in medicinal chemistry, chemical biology, structural biology, drug discovery, and pharmacology in cancer and other therapeutic areas, as well as for chemists and biologists working on nucleic acids, and will be useful for both active researchers and students in these areas.

“Tantalizingly irreverent; Camner’s work smacks of the deliciously absurd with a point. He is a brilliantly bizarre poet and master of the surreal.” - Lenny DellaRocca The Poetry Museum “Camner defies the traditional aesthetic concepts of poetry. He targets a world of ideas in a rather active way as opposed to the more passive, meditative aspects found in most poetry. There is a linguistic simplicity to his poems, an almost transparent quality, over a rather complex web of experience and thought. His poetry is life... ‘All you have to do is look’ – The obvious and not so obvious.” - Marta Braunstein, editor Cambio Literary Journal “Camner writes in terse, stark, real verse that would make Hemingway raise his scotch glass in honor.” - New Times Newspaper “Camner’s poetic style is reminiscent of Raymond Chandler’s detective writing; descriptive and terse with interesting plot lines. His characters are certainly the product of a vivid imagination.” - The Comstock Review “Camner’s ‘humour noir’ is apparent in his poetics, his spirited voice and unabashed freedom – so alive, even in his earliest poems.” - Peter Hargitai “A literary detour, and well worth the trip.” - Village Voice
In Performance and Politics in Tanzania, Laura Edmondson examines how politics, social values, and gender are expressed on stage. Now a disappearing tradition, Tanzanian popular theatre integrates comic sketches, acrobatics, melodrama, song, and dance to produce lively commentaries on what it means to be Tanzanian. These dynamic shows invite improvisation and spontaneous and raucous audience participation as they explore popular sentiments. Edmondson asserts that these performances overturn the boundary between official and popular art and offer a new way of thinking about African popular culture. She discusses how the blurring of state agendas and local desires presents a charged environment for the exploration of Tanzanian political and social realities: What is the meaning of democracy and who gets to define it? Who is in power, and how is power exposed or concealed? What is the role of tradition in a postsocialist state? How will the future of the nation be negotiated? This engaging book provides important insight into the complexity of popular forms of expression during a time of political and social change in East Africa.

Tiro o braço da minha frente e vou passar quando sua mão se fecha em um punho cerrado. Como isso é possível, me viro e começo a correr, mas é tarde. Vejo estupefato que vários corpos se levantam, seus lençóis caem. Paro agora um homem em pé esta na minha frente seu peito tem um corte que vai da garganta até o umbigo, costurado rusticamente, eu o empurro ele cai, passo rápido, agora são vários levantando, uma criança com metade da cabeça faltando, uma mulher de uns vinte anos tenta me puxar pelo braço, eu pego uma maca vazia e a empurro direto para ela, e a uso de proteção, agora são muitos, todos levantando querendo me pegar, ouço barulho vindo de dentro das portas da geladeira até aqueles estão vivos novamente, não sei o que acontece más preciso fugir..........

The first modern history of Scottish woodlands, this highly illustrated volume explores the changing relationship between trees and people from the time of Scotland's first settlement, focusing on the period 1500 to 1920. Drawing on work in natural science, geography and history, as well as on the authors' own research, it presents an accessible and readable account that balances social, economic and environmental factors. Two opening chapters describe the early history of the woodlands. The book is then divided into chapters that consider traditional uses and management, the impact of outsiders on the pine woods and the oakwoods in the first phase of exploitation, and the effect of industrialization. Separate chapters are devoted to case studies of management at Strathcarron, Glenorchy, Rothiemurchus, and on Skye.
From the author of "Celestial Sleuth" (2014), yet more mysteries in art, history, and literature are solved by calculating phases of the Moon, determining the positions of the planets and stars, and identifying celestial objects in paintings. In addition to helping to crack difficult cases, these studies spark our imagination and provide a better understanding of the skies. Weather archives, vintage maps, tides, historical letters and diaries, military records and the assistance of experts in related fields help with this work. For each historical event influenced by astronomy, there is a different kind of mystery to be solved. How did the changing tides affect an army's battle plans? How did the phases of the moon affect how an artist painted a landscape? Follow these exciting investigations with a master “celestial sleuth” as he tracks down the truth and helps unravel mysteries as far back as the Middle Ages and as recent as the iconic 1945 photograph of a kiss in Times Square on VJ Day. Topics or "cases" pursued were chosen for their wide public recognition and intrigue and involve artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet; historical events such as the campaigns of Braveheart in Scotland and battles in World War II and the Korean War; and literary authors such as Chaucer, Cervantes, Shakespeare, Byron, and Edgar Allan Poe.
ÔVolume Two of the International Handbook on the Economics of Corruption presents a comprehensive, detailed, and in-depth analysis of corruption as well as its economic and policy implications. . . It will be a valuable resource not only for experts and students of corruption studies, but also for public officials, NGO employees, and scholars of economic and political development throughout the world.Õ Ð Ararat L. Osipian, Journal of Economic Issues A companion volume to the International Handbook on the Economics of Corruption published in 2006, the specially commissioned papers in Volume Two present some of the best policy-oriented research in the field. They stress the institutional roots of corruption and include new research on topics ranging from corruption in regulation and procurement to vote buying and private firm payoffs. Understanding the consequences of corrupt transactions requires one to know what is being bought with a bribe and how the behavior of public and private actors has been affected. The contributors therefore emphasize how the economic analysis of corruption must take account of the broader context within which bribery and self-dealing operate. Several chapters offer new approaches to empirical research on corruption that range from individual-level data to the macro-economy. Chapters with an explicit policy focus deal with the efficacy of anti-corruption agencies, multi-stakeholder initiatives, red flag warning systems and international conventions. This cutting-edge work will be an unmatched resource for scholars and students of corruption, professionals in international aid and finance organizations, and scholars and professionals with more general interests in economic and political development.

The study of the creation of canine breeds in early modern Europe, especially Spain, illustrates the different constructs against which notions of human identity were forged. This book is the first comprehensive history of early modern Spanish dogs and it evaluates how two of Spain’s most celebrated and canonical cultural figures of this period, the artist Diego Velázquez and the author Miguel de Cervantes, radically question humankind’s sixteenth-century anthropocentric self-fashioning. In general, this study illuminates how Animal Studies can offer new perspectives to understanding Hispanism, giving readers a fresh approach to the historical, literary and artistic complexity of early modern Spain.

Zlata Filipovic was given a diary shortly before her tenth birthday and began to write in it regularly. She was an ordinary, if unusuallyintelligent and articulate little girl, and her preoccupations include whether or not to join the Madonna fan club, her piano lessons, her friends andher new skis. But the distant murmur of war draws closer to her Sarajevo home. Her father starts to wear military uniform and herfriends begin to leave the city. One day, school is closed and the next day bombardments begin. The pathos and power of Zlata's diary comes from watching the destruction of a childhood. Her circle of friends isincreasingly replaced by international journalists who come to hear of this little girl's courage and resilience. But the reality is that, as they flyoff with the latest story of Zlata, she remains behind, writing her deepest feelings to 'Mimmy', her diary, and her last remaining friend.
In the 1990s Svetlana Broz, granddaughter of former Yugoslav head of state Marshal Tito, volunteered her services as a physician in war-torn Bosnia. She discovered that her patients were not only in need of medical care, but that they urgently had a story to tell, a story suppressed by nationalist politicians and the mainstream media. What Broz heard compelled her to devote herself over the next several years to the collection of firsthand testimonies from the war. These testimonies show that ordinary people can and do resist the murderous ideology of genocide even under the most terrible historical circumstances. We are introduced to Mile Plakalovic, a magnificent humanist, who drove his taxi through the streets of Sarajevo, picking the wounded up off the sidewalk and delivering food and clothing to young and old, even when the bombing was at its worst. We meet Velimir Milosevic, poet, who traveled with an actor and entertained children as they hid in basements to avoid the bombing and gunfire, and we hear the stories of countless others who put themselves in grave danger to help others, regardless of ethnic background. Faced with a world in which unspeakable crimes not only went unpunished but were rewarded with glory, profit, and power, the Bosnians of all faiths who testify in this book were starkly confronted with the limits and possibilities of their own ethical choices. Here, in their own words they describe how people helped one another across ethnic lines and refused the myths promoted by the engineers of genocide. This book refutes the stereotype of inevitable natural enmities in the Balkans and reveals the responsibility of individual actions and political manipulations for the genocide; it is a searing portrait of the experience of war as well as a provocative study of the possibilities of resistance and solidarity. The testimonies reverberate far beyond the frontiers of the former Yugoslavia. This compelling book is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the reality on the ground of the ethnic conflicts of the late twentieth and the twenty-first centuries.
