<b>Norse Mythology</b><br /><br />When we think of Norse mythology, we might think of armored breastplates and plaited beards in horned helmets, and we are naturally drawn to stories of fierce warriors and Viking raids. But Norse mythology is more than that. It’s about the gods and goddesses who controlled the lives of men and woman, their crops, their battles and their fates. It’s about the Nine Worlds of the Gods and Giants who began the world the Norsemen knew, and the poets and coders (writers) who documented that world for us.<br /><br />While Norse mythology includes the tales and adventures of those who later became known as the Vikings, it begins with the religious and traditional ancestral stories that were handed down among generations, all of which revolved around the complex deities of the peoples of Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Sweden.<br /><br />The Norsemen were essentially heathens by today’s standards, a name coined because they lived in the “heaths”, people who later converted to Christianity during the Middle Ages, but who fought against it and the onslaught of the English realm for hundreds of years. And like any religious broad narrative, their deities allowed them to make sense of the world they lived in; it gave meaning to their lives and strength in battle, among other things.<br /><br />Yet the history of the Norsemen, and the gods and goddesses they believed in and built their world around, never loses its capacity to captivate us. This newest publication by University Press represents a delightful look at an inventive, highly religious, superstitious, and formidable culture.<br /><br /><b>Norse Mythology</b>

Public utilities play an important role in National development. Industries classified as public utilities are electricity, national gas, water and telephone. Management of ensuring increased electricity supplies contributes to economic growth. It’s reducing the production costs, enabling economic activities, increasing investment and improving agricultural and industrial productivity. <br />Among all public utilities electricity has important role in National development and increased supply of electricity can be ensured only when it’s utilized and saved from misuses. <br /> Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Limited (UPPCL) is one of the biggest Corporations in Uttar Pradesh which is situated in Northern part of India. Despite of decades of operations this UPPCL even today could not able to provide complete electric meter instrument to its consumer and unable to bill properly. A corporation whose having important role in National Development unable to control the misuse electricity consumption due to corruption and might this is main cause of poor development of Uttar Pradesh and 50% of its residents are compel to migrate to other states and countries in search of livelihood. <br />UPPCL’s main source of income is to sell and distribute the electricity and generate the profit to increase supply of electricity and help the nation and progress and development for that ensuring to raise the correct monthly bills to the consumers. But the fact is that UPPCL is known for issuance of incorrect and delayed bills, almost time this delay is in years, when after years they are issuing the bills, these bills includes with high penalties of late payment and compounding interest on it, that is one of the main causes of disputes and corruption. This has been done intentionally to get the bribe for rectification of bills. <br />In this book, I am trying to highlight the main causes of failure of UPPCL in the development of the state and nation. <br />Uttar Pradesh Power Corporation Limited (UPPCL) is Uttar Pradesh State Government undertaking engaged in electricity transmission and distribution within the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.<br />UPPCL is known as one of the most corrupt, mismanaged organization and service provider. It’s malpractices towards its consumers have made it one of the biggest Organization in the world known for its strange policies and procedure in practical. This not means that this organization is having lack of policies and procedures but in fact these policies and procedures have not been effective in practical. There are black holes made for corruption either its matter of procurement or stealing the power and selling it out by taking few bucks as bribe.<br />Government flexible policies have made its employees to completely misuse the UPPCL for personal benefit. This is matter of research that despite of millions of complaints and court cases every year against incorrect billing, this Organization is never putting responsible for harassment of its consumer. Since decades of unlawful practices have encouraged the consumers to use the electricity from back doors with the consent of UPPCL employees which benefiting both corrupt consumers and UPPCL’s corrupt employees. Those consumers spending their lives honestly being tortured and compel to run behind courts / forum against injustice and harassment. <br />UPPCL’s employees said to be public servant and in words they are serving to the public but in real this organizations has become the boon for these public servant to loot the poor consumers and public properties and in return receiving best facilities and excellent salaries throughout the service period and after retirement till the lifetime of both spouse. <br />An UPPCL employee is enjoying approximate 70 years of free electricity (approx. 30 years during service period and 40 years after retirement (till the death of retired employee and his wife) by paying minimum charges that is not even 0.01 percent of their actual consumption.

<b>The Crime of the Decade in Wisconsin...and covered nationally by CNN News. Interviews by Barbara Walters on 20/20, Oprah Winfrey and in April 2017, Dr. Oz.</b><br /> <br /><b>WITH PHOTOS</b><br />Teri Jendusa never dreamed she would marry a violent, malignant narcissist like David Larsen. But she did. Why? Simple. Larsen cleverly concealed his true nature until the marriage vows were final. David, an eventual church council president and model citizen, rapidly began to morph into a monster and sociopath, telling Teri on their wedding day, “Now, I own you.” <br /><br />Beaten and Left For Dead is a book about extreme marital violence, dominant control and psychological torment through the mind of the out-of-control David Larsen. It's also about survival, faith and a mother’s will to live for her children’s sake...as she faces death, face to face.<br /><br />This is an ideal book for women’s studies and book clubs as it looks inside a large women’s shelter, giving the reader a glimpse of a support network. The author also interviews a counselor who works with violent men with surprising results.<br /><br />Teri Jendusa-Nicolai continues to crusade for women’s issues to this day and currently works with a Wisconsin commission on domestic violence.<br /><br /><b>EDITORIAL PRAISE</b><br />"Teri Jendusa-Nicolai's story is a powerful example of the horrific lengths of barbarism a man can go to when he considers a woman his personal property. And it is, equally, an inspiring, riveting story of a woman's courage and clear thinking under the absolute worst of conditions, and of her tenacious hold to life...I am so grateful to Teri Jendusa-Nicolai and to Dave Alfvin for getting this story out to us. Don't miss it." <br /><b>--Lundy Bancroft, best-selling author on domestic violence, trainer, and activist on male violence against women</b><br /><br />"This book is important because it gets our message out as to what we do to help abusers change their value systems."<br /><b>--Maureen Manning-Rosenfeld, Clinical Professional Counselor</b>

Are members of the LGBTQ community all victims of hate, or are many becoming practiced haters themselves? <br /><br />Light years beyond basic civil rights we once shared in peace, gay extremists now demand special favors and legislative booty. It’s piling up at their feet, along with the heads of their perceived enemies. These include religious people, free-thinkers, concerned parents and the merely unenthusiastic.<br /><br />This book fearlessly probes the dark intersection of gay history and contemporary politics. It proves, that in many ways, the contemporary “gay rights” movement is driven by hatred of conservatism and religion. A virtual compendium of gay venom, Marisa concludes that homosexuality is nothing to be particularly proud of (but such feelings are illegal to publish or speak in many of the world’s outposts already).<br /> <br />“Gay Hate” critically re-evaluates homosexuality, its rage, anti-family venom, and destructive assaults on the world and the church today. Marisa also offers suggestions on how to stand your ground, refuse to grovel and, if necessary, to fight back.<br /><br />Marisa tells all, so this is not for children or faint of heart. <br />

Ces articles avaient pour objet de déterminer les principales « catégories » comiques, de grouper le plus grand nombre possible de faits et d’en dégager les lois : ils excluaient, par leur forme même, les discussions théoriques et la critique des systèmes. Devions-nous, en les rééditant, y joindre un examen des travaux relatifs au même sujet et comparer nos conclusions à celles de nos devanciers ? Notre thèse y eût gagné en solidité peut-être ; mais notre exposition se fût compliquer démesurément, en même temps qu’elle eût donner un volume hors de proportion avec l’importance du sujet traité. Nous nous décidons, en conséquence, à reproduire les articles tels qu’ils ont paru. Nous y joignons simplement l’indication des principales recherches entreprises sur la question du comique dans les trente dernières années.<br />

Product Description

L'alternativa neo-contadina: una dimensione complessiva di vita, una concezione di cosa sia il lavoro diversa da quella convenzionale, un'economia di decrescita che è anche una possibilità praticabile oggi come risposta 'dal basso' alla crisi economica. <br />Tale risposta è altrettanto una dissociazione sia dal modello economico-culturale dominante che dai movimenti che gli si contrappongono in chiave antagonista: la via qui proposta - e che muove dall'esperienza vissuta -  è quella della costruzione di un'alternativa integrale a partire non solo dalla terra ma, più ampiamente, dalla Natura.<br />Ciò implica un cambiamento profondo nella visione del mondo: ripercorrendo il filo delle riflessioni che hanno accompagnato l'autore in questa scelta di vita giungiamo infatti ad una messa in discussione radicale degli stessi presupposti filosofici della Modernità Occidentale e della convinzione diffusa per cui "non ci sono alternative" al suo modello. <br />La via neo-contadina può essere invece quella di un'evoluzione autenticamente umana a partire da ogni individuo con la sua facoltà di scegliere; attraverso un recupero dell'empirico; dell'esperienza diretta; attraverso il superamento della centralità (e dei limiti) del Logos - tratto distintivo dell'Occidente - attingendo anche a tradizioni che, come il Buddhismo, possono indicarci strade altre, divergenti da quelle che ci hanno portato al preoccupante punto di crisi complessiva in cui siamo oggi.<br />

<P>The newest volume in the Elections in Israel series focuses on the twentieth Knesset elections held in March 2015 following the collapse of the third Netanyahu government. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s main opposition party, the Zionist Camp, ran a negative personalized election campaign, assuming that Israelis had grown tired of him. Netanyahu, however, achieved a surprising and dramatic victory by enhancing and radicalizing the same identity politics strategies that helped him win in 1996. </P><I><br /><P>The Elections in Israel 2015 </I>dissects these and other campaigns, from the perspective of the voters, the media and opinion polls, the political parties, and electoral competition. Several contributors delve into the Left and Arab fear mongering Likud campaign, which produced <I>strategic identity voting</I>. Other contributions analyze in-depth the Israeli party and electoral systems, highlighting the exceptional decline of the mainstream parties and the adoption of a higher electoral threshold. Providing a close analysis of electoral competition, legitimacy struggles, stability and change in the voting behavior of various groups, partisanship, personalization and political polarization, this volume is a crucial record of Israeli political history.</P>
