A Digit of the Moon - A Hindu Love Story - Taschenbuch

2015, ISBN: 9781443722230

Gebundene Ausgabe, ID: 585645534

Authorhouse. Paperback. New. Paperback. 336 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.9in. x 0.9in.Sixteen-year-old Rebecca Middleton and best friend Jasmine Meens make their trip of a lifetime to the Queens Jewel in the Atlantic, oblivious to secrets beneath the islands idyllic guise and to the horrors that await them on the dark side of Paradise. Sunny days and teal surf welcome the Canadian teenagers as they roam the twenty square miles of the seemingly pristine British territory. But on this searing July night, a full moon, an unusual storm, a cancelled cruise, absent taxis, and chance meetings end in the gruesome kidnap, rape, torture, and murder of Rebecca Middleton. Emotions left over from long-standing racial inequities impact Beckys case from the moment of her slaughter--especially the hangings of two black men for the murders of five white men during those racially charged 1970s--a matter many still prefer not to discuss. Repercussions from the young Canadian tourists death and its investigative and judicial failures create international uproar that catches the attention of famed U. S. forensic scientists Dr. Michael Baden and Dr. Henry Lee. During an inquiry brought about by a tourist boycott of Bermuda, advocate LeYoni Junos exposes truths behind this tangled web of deceit. But it wont be long before LeYoni Junos suffers those consequences typically experienced by those who fail to lie in the tide. Then, almost eight years after Rebeccas murder, the case catches the attention of British human rights lawyer Cherie Booth, QC, wife of former Prime Minister Tony Blair, who terms Bermudas responses repugnant to justice. Meanwhile, despite responsibility for territories good governance, Britain treads lightly. This is a true story of murder, collusion, conspiracy, and cover-up designed to protect the secrets of privilege, and hide the poverty, violence and drugs that darken Bermudas tranquil pastels, a third-world setting of mysterious beauty and international influence incongruent with its size.

Dimensions: 11.0in. x 8.2in. x 0.4in.Politano has this to say about his poetry. This collection of poems is strictly my own work, without aid or assistance from anyone. I am grateful of course, in a general way, to the professors in the schools, colleges, and universities I have attended, as both student and lecturer, who helped provide me with a breadth and depth of knowledge without which this little book would not have been possible. I am grateful also to the many authors, both good and bad (or merely forgettable), whose work has helped to give me a sense of balance in my poetry. But I am most grateful for the fact that I have lived long enough and participated sufficiently in the business of life to make some sense of certain matters concerning the human condition, about which in my earlier years I was absolutely mystified, and at times even terrified. Diane Wakowski, author of more than sixteen volumes of poetry and Michigan State University Professor and Writer-in-Residence said this: Pascal R. Politanos poetry offers gracefully presented traditional language, is well-ordered, rhythmic and concise. . . . It avoids prosy explanations, poeticized cliches, and the mundane sentimental phrases that can often mar a poems possible elegance. This item ships from multiple locations.

ReviewAir Con demonstrates, with hundreds of scientific references, that global warming was not, is not, and will not be a global crisis; that, even if per impossibile it might be, it is far more cost-effective to adapt as and if needed than to attempt to mitigate global warming by cutting emissions of carbon dioxide; and that all attempts at mitigation would serve only to imprison the very poorest in their poverty, thereby perversely increasing world population and consequently the carbon footprint of humankind, achieving an outcome precisely the opposite of that which was (however piously) intended. The UN, Mikhail Gorbachev, Jacques Chirac, and other world-government wannabes are plotting to establish nothing less than a global, bureaucratic-centralist dictatorship under the pretext that it is necessary to Save The Planet. Ian Wisharts book demonstrates that there is not the slightest scientific reason for the new, quasi-religious belief that The Planet needs Saving. The new religion is merely an excuse for world government. World government will not, repeat not, be democratic government. The global warming debate is not really a debate about climatology - it is a debate about freedom. It is the aim of the growing world-government faction among the international classe politique to take away our hard-won freedom and democracy forever. I commend this timely book, which makes the scientific arguments comprehensible to the layman. Those who read it will help to forestall the new Fascists and so to keep us free. --Lord Christopher Monckton, Viscount of Brenchley, former scientific advisor to Margaret Thatcher --Christopher Monckton, Viscount of BrenchleyI started reading this book with an intensely critical eye, expecting that a mere journalist could not possibly cope with the complexities of climate science . . . But He gives chapter and verse for almost everything he says. The book is brilliant. The best I have seen which deals with the news item side of it as well as the science. He has done a very thorough job and I have no hesitation in unreserved commendation. It has come along at the time we most need it and I hope it is published and publicized widely. --Dr Vincent Gray, UN IPCC expert reviewer This book by New Zealand journalist Ian Wishart a 1 bestselling author four times, surprised me by the completeness with which he reviewed and presents alternatives to the plethora of IPCC inspired spin and publicity which floods our media today. His sixteen chapters examining aspects of the debate are meticulously footnoted and thus are a valuable reference resource for those wishing to dig deeper or keep up to speed with the unfolding global warming carbon reduction political drama in years to come. --Dr Warwick Hughes, climatologist ExcellentIan Wisharts book Air Con ismore approachable for the non-scientific reader, and whilst including enough essential science to gain a good understanding of the issues, concentrates more on the political aspects of the global warming debate, including how the global warming industry has tried (unsuccessfully) to shut down any criticism of the consensus, and exposes the scientific skulduggery that often goes on to perpetuate global warming alarmism. ACM highly recommendsessential reading - Australian Climate Madness --Australian Climate MadnessIan Wisharts AIR CON is another masterpiece of scientific reason, letting the thinking world know that so-called man-made global warming is the greatest scam ever aimed at humanity.

Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN., Howling at the Moon Pub., Bison Books. Paperback. New. Paperback. 272 pages. Dimensions: 3.3in. x 3.2in. x 0.8in.Near the end of the Apollo 15 mission, David Scott and fellow moonwalker James Irwin conducted a secret ceremony unsanctioned by NASA: they placed on the lunar soil a small tin figurine called The Fallen Astronaut, along with a plaque bearing a list of names. This book enriches the saga of mankinds greatest scientific undertaking, Project Apollo, and conveys the human cost of the space raceby telling the stories of those sixteen astronauts and cosmonauts who died reaching for the moon. Many people are aware of the Apollo launch pad disaster in which three men lost their lives, but few know of the other five fallen astronauts whose stories this book tells as well: among them, Ted Freeman and C. C. Williams, who died in the crashes of their -38 jets; the Gemini Twins, Charlie Bassett and Elliot See, killed when their jet slammed into the building where their Gemini capsule was undergoing final construction; and Ed Givens, whose fatal car crash has until now been obscured by rumors. The extraordinary lives and accomplishments of these and other fallen astronauts including eight Russian cosmonauts who lost their lives during training unfold here in intimate and compelling detail, supported by extensive interviews and archival material. Their stories return us to a stirring time in the history of our nation and remind us of the cost of fulfilling our dreams. This item ships from multiple locations.

A ring of ice and steel turning around a moon of Saturn, and home to a mining colony supplying a resource-hungry Earth. It's a bad place to grow up. The colony has been plagued by problems. Maybe it's just gremlins, just bad luck. But the equipment failures and thefts of resources have been increasing, and there have been stories among the children of mysterious creatures glimpsed aboard the Wheel. Many of the younger workers refuse to go down the warren-like mines anymore. And then sixteen-year-old Phee Laws, surfing Saturn's rings, saves an enigmatic blue box from destruction. Aboard the Wheel, the Doctor, Jamie and Zoe find a critical situation - and they are suspected by some as the source of the sabotage. They soon find themselves caught in a mystery that goes right back to the creation of the solar system. A mystery that could kill them all. 8 CDs. 9 hrs 46 mins., Independent Pub Group, 2014.

Heading to New Guinea to spend the summer holidays with her absentee father, sixteen-year-old Julie has no idea what to expect or that the trip will be an unforgettable one.SKU: MM-26111888; EAN: 9781743315033, Independent Pub Group, 2014, Penguin Group USA, 2015. Paperback. New. From the acclaimed author of Pack Up the Moon comes a poignant and beautiful novel about love, loss, and the unbreakable bonds of family-particularly those between mothers, daughters, and sisters. Ten years ago, Nora Glass started writing essays about being a single mother of a six-year-old daughter. Her weekly column made her a household name, and over the years, her fans have watched Ellie grow from a toddler to a teenager. But now Nora is facing a problem that can't be overcome. Diagnosed with a devastating disease that will eventually take away who she is, she is scared for herself, but even more frightened about what this will mean for her sixteen-year-old daughter. Now Nora has no choice but to let go of her hard-won image as a competent, self-assured woman, and turn to the one person who has always relied on her: her twin sister, Mariana. Nora and Mariana couldn't be more different from one another, and they've always had a complicated relationship. But now the two sisters will have to summon the strength to help them all get through a future none of them could have ever imagined, while uncovering the joy and beauty that was always underneath"--SKU: MM-22499109; EAN: 9780451468611, Penguin Group USA, 2015, Hesperides Press.

But we lose, la a literal prose version, the reverbera-tion, and the echo of the Sea, which undertones themeaning of the words like the accompaniment to a song.

PREFACE TO FIRST EDITION: A DIGIT OF THE MOON is the sixteenth part of a muchlonger work, entitled The Churning of the Ocean ofTime A well-known Hindoo legend recounts how thegods and antigods assembled to churn the ocean of milk bfor the nectar of immortality. After throwing in herbsofvarious kinds, they churned it with Mount Mandara, andobtained the nectar, with certain other things, one ofwhich was the MOON, who by the way is often called the Lord of Herbs. But in Sanskrit, the Moon, like the Sun, is a male. Hindoo poets get over this difficulty, when they want afemale Moon, by personifying his attributes, or makinga part do duty for the whole. Thus, his disc is dividedinto sixteen parts, called streaks or digits and abeautiful woman is a digit of the moon Sansampra-sdgara-manthanam For milk the author has substituted a technical word whichmeans the world considered as the scene of never-ending transmigrations. (0 world! O life! O time!) By this he impliesthat the nectar of his work is the residuum of much churningof life and experience of the world, and that it is destinedto be immortal.

[ED: Hardcover], [PU: Hesperides Press], Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Hesperides Press are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork. PREFATORY NOTE TO SECONDEDITION: THE better to Illustrate how, in Hindoo mythology,the ideas of a beautiful woman, the Moon, and the Seagtdissolve and disappear into one another, I have placedon the fly-leaf of this edition a single stanza, drawnfrom another part of my MS., which characteristically.exemplifies that dissolving mew: subjoining here, fordie benefit of the uninitiated, a literal translation :O thou lovely Incarnation of the Nectar-droppingMoon come down from Heaven to lighten our Dark-ness : Delight of the Race of Man retaining in thyWomanhood the dancing Play of the Waves of that Seaof Milk out of which thou wert originally churned bythe Gods: we the Three Worlds of Childhood Man-hood) and Age) do worship the Orb of thy Bosom thatpossesses for us a Threefold Mystical Feminine Energy*:being a Pitcher of Milk for us% when we are Born : The last lines contain recondite philosophical allusions tothe Creation, Preservation, and Destruction of the World, andother matters, in technical terms which defy translation. Lifein Hindoo philosophy, as in that of the Middle Ages, carriesabout with it a perfume of death: there is in its atmospheresomething melancholy, and even a little morbid, like the slowtoiling of a bell. the Middle of the Path of Life: anda Shrine in 'which we take refuge to die at the last.But we lose, la a literal prose version, the reverbera-tion, and the echo of the Sea, which undertones themeaning of the words like the accompaniment to a song.This sound we might make some attempt to preserve,without doing violence to the sense, as followsLike a New Moon's exquisite Incarnation,,In the Ebb and Flow of a Surging SeaWave-breasted Beauty, the whole CreationWanes, and waxes, and rocks on thee IFor we rise and fall on thy Bosom's BillowWhose heavimg Swell is our Home DivineOur Chalice at Dawn and our hot Noon's Pillow,Our Evening's Shrine. PREFACE TO FIRST EDITION: A DIGIT OF THE MOON is the sixteenth part of a muchlonger work, entitled The Churning of the Ocean ofTime A well-known Hindoo legend recounts how thegods and antigods assembled to churn the ocean of milk bfor the nectar of immortality. After throwing in herbs'ofvarious kinds, they churned it with Mount Mandara,andobtained the nectar, with certain other things, one ofwhich was the MOON, who by the way is often called* the Lord of Herbs.'But in Sanskrit, the Moon, like the Sun, is a male.Hindoo poets get over this difficulty, when they want afemale Moon, by personifying his attributes, or makinga part do duty for the whole. Thus, his disc is dividedinto sixteen parts, called 'streaks' or 'digits? and abeautiful woman is 'a digit of the moon?* Sansampra-sdgara-manthanam* For milk the author has substituted a technical word whichmeans the world considered as the scene of never-ending trans*migrations. ('0 world! O life! O time!) By this he impliesthat the nectar of his work is the residuum of much churningof life and experience of the world, and that it is destinedto be immortal.Versandfertig in 3-5 Tagen, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot
