Speaking frankly, not peddling fantasy, and writing honestly and sharply, in About Black Women, My Grandmother Told Me: Worthy Advice for Future Generations, Narcisse Nguema offers 791 bits of time-tested advice for everyone, but especially for African American women. Women are the core of society, and the black woman’s authenticity is not a matter of negotiation or discomfort—the black authenticity is pride, and shall remain immaculate. The blacker women accept themselves in their entirety, the better the black community will be. With Nguema’s firm but clear guidance, readers of About Black Women will again claim the feminine behaviors that civilized culture before the actions that built up ethics, morals and rules, and law and wealth.
Imagine you find a chicken coop full of orphaned puppies in the middle of bone-chilling winter. You already have a house full of rescue dogs. Your resources are already at their breaking point. You know the shelter is no place for puppies. It’s a death sentence. Do you close your heart to them, and leave them for dead? Do you turn them away and deny their cries for help? Or, do you have the strength to do the right thing? What would Beth and her husband do when faced with such a life-changing decision?Standing on the edge of a slippery slope, would they save themselves, or fall head first into rescue? Would they walk away, or take the path of leashed resistance? This book is a hilarious and heartbreaking look into the life of a remarkable family that fell into canine rescue completely by accident, but now lives to protect and care for their dogs absolutely on purpose. An awe-inspiring read for anyone who loves dogs! When Robert and Beth Hading-Yostlot rescued Buddy Lee, they had no idea what they had started. How one dog would spark such compassion in them for abused and abandoned animals. But that spark turned into a blazing fire that burned brighter and hotter than they could have ever imagined. Fueled by destroyed furniture, food follies, bizarre accidents, and near death experiences, the fire spread to every corner of their lives. They experienced both the pleasure of seeing damaged dogs be healed by the courage of a loving family and the love of other amazing dogs, as well as the hardships of having to make such great sacrifices to give them what they needed to grow in strength and joy. They also experienced the triumph of watching a dog’s spirit be lit up by life, along with agony when it was extinguished by death. Beth Hading-Yostlot gives us a glimpse into their adventures, their pragmatic existence, and explains why forty-plus dogs later, they’re still living a life devoted to canine rescue and what it means to live by the Buddy System. The only thing she can’t predict, is who’s going to need their help next…
He likes his vodka martinis shaken, not stirred. He drives one of the most recognizable cars in film history, and his Walther PPK has become legendary too. Very few have ever looked better in a tuxedo.
His name is Bond … James Bond.
He’s chased villains — and women — on screen for decades. His fictional world and movie run have been threatened, but he is never defeated … because His World Never Dies.
In his book debut, Dave Holcomb takes a fresh look at how the 007 film series has persevered through multiple generations. He follows Bond from his birth on screen in 1962 through the early stages of Bond 25, detailing how the series has evolved its portrayal of masculinity, femininity, race, and humor over the course of its history.
Through the use of nostalgia, timeless musical themes and fan theories, Holcomb explains how 007 remains contemporary, relevant, and most importantly, popular, through the first two decades of the 21st century.
Economic Solutions to Current Social and Political Issues in the U.S.
Poverty is a structural problem created by economic thinking errors and institutional poverty traps, revealed and discussed in detail in this book. Neff argues that America is a welfare state.
The working poor are a social problem created by politics. The low minimum wage does not support a most basic lifestyle and as a result, food stamps, free medical services and other social programs become necessary to cover the gap. Half of the Federal budget supports the poor and the elderly across the country. Americans, mostly the middle class, subsidize this insufficient minimum wage with their taxes and unknowingly and indirectly support the bottom line of companies that underpay their employees. Economic thinking errors are the source of our entitlement society.
Democratic principles are distorted. The current political system allows the wealthy and large corporations to covertly influence legislation and bend economic laws in their favor.
Too many Americans are blinded by dreams of success and vote against their real interests and values. This is the American voting paradox, institutionally supported by gerrymandering and voting restrictions that favor the libertarian ideology.
RESTORE TRUST is an invitation to take a fresh look at the current socio-economic reality. Neff discusses economic solutions to dysfunctional politics and offers a conclusive call to action to help Americans restore trust and defend their needs and core values. He offers opportunities to create a shift to strengthen our democracy.
Indian mythology is filled with ancient tales and legends of karma and how it affected people’s current lives and beyond. Does karma also affect the mythological Gods, or is it only reserved for mortals?
This book contains ten stories of karma and how even the smallest of actions can result in lives being changed, including lives of the Gods. The lessons range from the effects of stealing a sacred cow to allowing an animal to keep its life and many more. In these stories, battles rage on earth and in the heavens, animals and plants can change one’s destiny, and both honor and betrayal are featured prominently. All of these themes come together as foundations for these legends passed down through generations to teach the lesson of karma.
After reading these stories, you can’t help but examine your own life and wonder what effects the decisions you have made and actions you have taken will have on your future.
