Intelligence work is a great deal like flying. While flying is hours of sheer boredom with moments of stark terror, intelligence work is weeks of sheer boredom with moments of stark panic. Ben Jourdon works an analyst at the National Security Agency, specializing in the Middle East. He hadn't sought the job, and he isnt sure he even wants it. As with many of the things in life, though, Ben has little choicethe job is an excellent cover. The only thing he ever really wanted was to be a career Air Force flying officer, but that was not to be. After six years of flying, he had been medically grounded, courtesy of a bullet in Vietnam, and had to seek a new direction. The next six years saw him working as a Signals Intelligence Officer, but that came to an end on a dark street in Athens some eight years before. As for his true avocation, though, he was a professional assassin. What a surprise it would be for the security people at the NSA to find out about this other job

While books on pedagogy in a theoretical mode have proliferated in recent years, there have been few that offer practical, specific ideas for teaching particular biblical texts. To address this need, Teaching the Bible, a collection of ideas and activities written by dozens of innovative college and seminary professors, outlines effective classroom strategies—with a focus on active learning—for the new teacher and veteran professor alike. It includes everything from ways to incorporate film, literature, art, and music to classroom writing assignments and exercises for groups and individuals. The book assumes an academic approach to the Bible but represents a wide range of methodological, theological, and ideological perspectives. This volume is an indispensable resource for anyone who teaches classes on the Bible.

How to deal with a stalker

...and other assaults on person or property

Stalking is an increasingly prevalent and disturbing problem in today’s society, made worse and more frightening by the internet and the increasing amount of legal and illegal surveillance that is happening. Cyberstalking has become such a problem that it has had to be enshrined in law as a distinct crime. It is, therefore, important that potential innocent victims are able to spot the signs that they are being, or about to be, stalked, what to do to prevent and dissuade the stalker and what rights and resort they have against the perpetrators. This compilation covers all this as well as looking at self-defence as a means of protection – and its legal implications and the increasingly relevant issue of surveillance and ‘gang stalking.’ You have the right to protection– and informing yourself is the first step in this process.

Other People's Stories

Entitlement Claims and the Critique of Empathy
Author: Amy Shuman
Publisher: University of Illinois Press
ISBN: 0252077741
Category: Language Arts & Disciplines
Page: 200
View: 3468
In Other People's Stories, Amy Shuman examines the social relations embedded in stories and the complex ethical and social tensions that surround their telling. Drawing on innovative research and contemporary theory, she describes what happens when one person's story becomes another person's source of inspiration, or when entitlement and empathy collide. The resulting analyses are wonderfully diverse, integrating narrative studies, sociolinguistics, communications, folklore, and ethnographic studies to examine the everyday, conversational stories told by cultural groups including Latinas, Jews, African Americans, Italians, and Puerto Ricans. Shuman offers a nuanced and clear theoretical perspective derived from the Frankfurt school, life history research, disability research, feminist studies, trauma studies, and cultural studies. Without compromising complexity, she makes narrative inquiry accessible to a broad population.

Thermidor is just another way of saying Inquisition. At a point in time, the structure is in trouble. You either fix the structure, or you start shooting the people in the life of a complex group called a society. The shooting of people in a complex group, randomly constituted on account of the structure is what we call an Inquisition.

For thirty-five years and through thirteen editions, Jim Henslin's Down to Earth Sociology has opened new windows onto the social realities that shape our world. Now in its fourteenth edition, the most popular anthology in sociology includes new articles on our changing world while also retaining its classic must-read essays. Focusing on social interaction in everyday life, the forty-six selections bring students face-to-face with the twin projects of contemporary sociology: understanding the individual's experience of society and analyzing social structure. The fourteenth edition's exceptional new readings include selections on the role of sympathy in everyday life, mistaken perceptions of the American family, the effects of a criminal record on getting a job, and the major social trends affecting our future. Together with these essential new articles, the selections by Peter Berger, Herbert Gans, Erving Goffman, Donna Eder, Zella Luria, C. Wright Mills, Deborah Tannen, Barrie Thorne, Sidney Katz, Philip Zimbardo, and many others provide firsthand reporting that gives students a sense of "being there." Henslin also explains basic methods of social research, providing insight into how sociologists explore the social world. The selections in Down to Earth Sociology highlight the most significant themes of contemporary sociology, ranging from the sociology of gender, power, politics, and religion to the contemporary crises of racial tension, crime, rape, poverty, and homelessness.

Discussion questions and sidebars are included.

Listen to the Voice

Introduced by Douglas Gifford.This collection of the best of Iain Crichton Smiths short fiction brings together not one but many voices, both public and private. Ranging from inner promptings towards self-discovery, through the unconscious comedy of everyday speech, to the rantings of near madness, these stories display the peaks of Smiths wry, surrealistic humour, and his confessional mode in re-telling the past.The longer stories, illustrative of Smiths novels, are represented by Murdo and the seminal The Black and the Red. There are also outstanding short pieces such as Listen to the Voice and the poignant vignette, The Dying.These sensitive stories focus on the ambiguities of the inner voice, whose promptings can lead to self-discovery or repression and madness. Each juxtaposes the minutiae of everyday life with moments of searing emotion. Independent on SundayHe has a dry pungent humour, a gift for comic invention and a welcome ability to laugh at himself and his background while making a serious point and taking us to conclusions that are anything but obvious.
