Lyla McAfee kann die Klassenfahrt nach Florida kaum erwarten: Sommer, Sonne und Boyfriend Derrick. Mit dem sie „das erste Mal“ in Angriff nehmen will. Aber dann läuft rein gar nichts wie geplant. Erst muss sie mit Bad Boy Beckett zum Flughafen fahren, dann liefert sie sich einen schlimmen Streit mit Derrick und stellt nach der Ankunft fest, dass sie ein Zimmer mit Aven und Quinn teilt, ihren ehemals besten, inzwischen entfremdeten Freundinnen. Als Lyla dann noch eine E-Mail von sich selbst erhält, mit der Botschaft: „Lerne zu vertrauen!“, kommt sie ins Grübeln. Nicht nur über Aven und Quinn, sondern auch über Beckett ...

"In the Moment" is a modern Romeo and Juliet in two different time dimensions. In this unusual love story, Dutch author Hanco Kolk and Flemish author Kim Duchateau have found a particular way of working together, in which each of them draws one time dimension. Rafael Falstaff falls hopelessly in love with Sylvia, a chronowoman. He can see her, but he doesn't see her move, nor can he touch her, because they would both die if he did. But he's happy with just seeing her, until he realizes her life is in danger. He then decides to take action, with all that it entails... A story in two parts.

One of the attractions of painting outdoors is the challenge of capturing the spirit of a place - changing light, weather and transient conditions demand particular painting skills if they are to be interpreted effectively. Leading painter David Curtis works on location, in all weathers, observing and capturing the subtle effects of light and mood. Oil paint is as good for painting on site as it is for large-scale painting in the studio; it is remarkably responsive; can be applied in many different ways; and it allows time to assess and modify work in progress. In this fascinating book, David Curtis shows how he achieves such expressive and original results using drawings, paintings and stage-by-stage examples. He gives detailed explanations of his two main working methods - for plein-air paintings and for studio compositions - as well as plenty of helpful guidance and advice on choosing materials, exploring techniques, selecting ideas, composition, colour and tone and associated topics. Drawing skills and interpreting the qualities of light are other key issues that he deals with, while his wonderfully evocative landscapes, coastal scenes, interiors and figure compositions provide much inspiration.

How to warm up to the clients that stop you cold. Have you experienced the anger, fear, doubt, and frustration that most clinicians feel but rarely put words to? Have you ever overreacted to a client in session or found yourself overwhelmed by the work with that client in your caseload? Are you looking for tools to manage your most “difficult” clients? Chances are, you’re like all other clinicians: At times you play “tug-of-war” with those in your care. The Heat of the Moment in Treatment is for clinicians looking to explore, reassess, and transform the way they treat their most difficult clients. With carefully designed mindfulness-based exercises, self-assessments, and skill development activities, this workbook helps clinicians understand their own role in therapeutic interactions, as well as how to proactively respond to tough client behavior in ways that improve the prospects for successful treatment. Author Mitch Abblett acts as a sensitive, expert guide, laying out a roadmap for the toughest of clinical encounters that almost all therapists face, whether seasoned or just starting out. His use of relatable metaphors, rhetorical questions, and stories from his own experience allows readers to reflect upon their own psychotherapy practice without feeling like there is one right way to deal with challenging clients. The Heat of the Moment in Treatment will help clinicians move beyond assumptions and reactive impulses to their “difficult” clients. Readers will gain proactive clinical leadership skills, while learning how to expand mindful awareness of self and others to access compassion and empathy for any client—even when the “heat” of moment-to-moment interaction in session is hard to tolerate.

Time and the Moment in Victorian Literature and Society

Sudden changes, opportunities, or revelations have always carried a special significance in Western culture, from the Greek and later the Christian kairos to Evangelical experiences of conversion. This fascinating book explores the ways in which England, under the influence of industrializing forces and increased precision in assessing the passing of time, attached importance to moments, events that compress great significance into small units of time. Sue Zemka questions the importance that modernity invests in momentary events, from religion to aesthetics and philosophy. She argues for a strain in Victorian and early modern novels critical of the values the age invested in moments of time, and suggests that such novels also offer a correction to contemporary culture and criticism, with its emphasis on the momentary event as an agency of change.

In ›Anatomie eines Augenblicks‹ schildert Javier Cercas den entscheidenden Augenblick am 23. Februar 1981, als das Schicksal der noch jungen Demokratie Spaniens auf der Kippe stand: Das Parlament war umstellt, die Putschisten in den Startlöchern, aber der damalige Präsident und der junge König blieben unerschütterlich. Wie in einem Thriller entfaltet Cercas diesen Moment und analysiert ihn. Mit dem Gespür für Spannung und dem Auge des Romanautors schuf Javier Cercas das bewegte Standbild einer dramatischen Episode, die Spaniens Geschichte hätte auf den Kopf stellen können. »Wir werden ... zu Zeugen einer grandiosen Tat des Widerstands gegen die sich ständig wiederholende Infamie der Geschichte«, schrieb Alberto Manguel. El País wählte es zu seinem Buch des Jahres, und ganz Spanien machte es zum Bestseller.

Dieser Moment, das Jetzt, das Hier, der Körper...so einfach ist der Fokus, und in der Einfachheit - welcher Reichtum!

Denn: wenn nicht jetzt, wann dann?

When Archimedes, while bathing, suddenly hit upon the principle of buoyancy, he ran wildly through the streets of Syracuse, stark naked, crying "eureka!" In The Moment of Proof, Donald Benson attempts to convey to general readers the feeling of eureka--the joy of discovery--that mathematicians feel when they first encounter an elegant proof. This is not an introduction to mathematics so much as an introduction to the pleasures of mathematical thinking. And indeed the delights of this book are many and varied. The book is packed with intriguing conundrums--Loyd's Fifteen Puzzle, the Petersburg Paradox, the Chaos Game, the Monty Hall Problem, the Prisoners' Dilemma--as well as many mathematical curiosities. We learn how to perform the arithmetical proof called "casting out nines" and are introduced to Russian peasant multiplication, a bizarre way to multiply numbers that actually works. The book shows us how to calculate the number of ways a chef can combine ten or fewer spices to flavor his soup (1,024) and how many people we would have to gather in a room to have a 50-50 chance of two having the same birthday (23 people). But most important, Benson takes us step by step through these many mathematical wonders, so that we arrive at the solution much the way a working scientist would--and with much the same feeling of surprise. Every fan of mathematical puzzles will be enthralled by The Moment of Proof. Indeed, anyone interested in mathematics or in scientific discovery in general will want to own this book.

On an autumn day in 1998, college student Laura Hanson is in the prime of her life. One moment she is driving home after a hayride; the next moment she is paralyzed, deaf, and comatose after her car strikes a tree. Shared through the eyes of a mother's heart, this poignant memoir of a traumatic journey into the little known world of brain injury is an incredible story of love lost and love endured-of heroes determined to overcome insurmountable obstacles-and of a family as it struggles to cope with the loss of their daughter. Mary Hanson chronicles her searing personal experience from the moment her daughter is carried on to the flight-for-life helicopter at the accident scene through a hospital's trauma center to the brain injury units of two others, and finally to a group home. In this amazing story of how a young woman and her family survived incredible odds, there is one clear message-that through faith, hope, and love the human spirit will triumph over the most difficult of circumstances.

This book is a systematic history of one of the oldest problems in the philosophy of space and time: How is the change from one state to its opposite to be described? To my knowledge it is the first comprehensive book providing information about and analysis of texts on this topic throughout the ages. The target audience I envisaged are advanced students and scholars of analytic philosophy and the history of philosophy who are interested in the philosophy of space and time. Authors treated in this book range from Plato, Aristotle, the logicians of the late Middle Ages, Kant, Brentano and Russell to contemporary authors such as Chisholm, Hamblin, Sorabji or Graham Priest, taking into account such theories as interval semantics or paraconsistent logic. For the first time, two main questions about the moment of change are explicitly kept apart: Which (if any) of the opposite states does the moment of change belong to? And does it contain an instantaneous event? The texts are discussed within a clear framework of the main systematic options for describing the moment of change, sometimes using predicate logic extended by newly introduced logical prefixes. The last part contains a new suggestion of how to solve the problem of the moment of change. It is centred around a theory of instantaneous states which provides a new solution to Zeno's Flying Arrow Paradox.
