A legkövérebb magyar ember az egészséges táplálkozásról és a méregtelenítés csodájáról beszél, miközben sűrűn öblögeti torkát a saját Bt.-je által forgalmazott "csodaszerrel", az Emese Acapulco Diabetikus Gyógyíróval. Az ő abszurd monológja ez a hamisítatlan Parti Nagy Lajos szöveg, melyben csak úgy röpködnek a csodás szókreálmányok és frenetikus mondatok. Közben, még ha akár amúgy kákabélűek is volnánk, úgy érezzük: reng a tokánk és rázkódik a hasunk a nevetéstől.
Drawn from great speeches, constitutional documents, philosophy, private letters and diaries, religious works, and histories, the 300 extracts in this collection mark defining moments in the progress of humankind through four millennia on its path to political, religious, and intellectual freedom. This volume affirms human achievement on every page. Among its many and diverse voices are Anne Frank, Plato, Lillian Hellman, William Wordsworth, John F. Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, Tom Paine, Sir Walter Raleigh, Demosthenes, Florence Nightingale, Winston Churchill, St. Francis, and Jesus. Their words find the sense in the variable course of human events, and their truths survive the vicissitudes of history. Arranged chronologically, the documents present centuries of truths that have set men and women free. Among the anthology's highlights are the last speech of Socrates, on his condemnation to death in 399 B.C; Nelson Mandela's 1964 speech from the dock; Emile Zola's "J'accuse," Peter Millar on the tearing down of the Berlin Wall; Thomas Paine's "The Rights of Man"; Mary Wollstonecraft's "Vindication of the Rights of Women"; former slave Frederick Douglass's open letter to his former master; Lion Feuchtwanger's letter to X, on the Nazi confiscation of his house; and Abelard writing to Heloise on eternal love.
"Un biglietto d'entrata nella memoria costa solo 13 dollari. Basta trovarsi nei pressi della cittadina di Bethel, un'ora di macchina a nord di New York, e sarete attirati da cartelli che indicano una direzione e un nome che dopo quarant'anni manda ancora inaspettate scariche elettriche: Woodstock. Anzi per l'esattezza: Woodstock Museum. Una cosa del genere poteva accadere solo in America. A chi altri poteva venire in mente di costruire un museo dedicato a un concerto? Un concerto ...
Un oggetto immateriale, intangibile, esistito solo nel flusso spazio-temporale di tre giorni.
Come è possibile? E, soprattutto, cosa è stato davvero Woodstock? Di sicuro molto di più che un semplice festival di musica. Diciamo una singolarità della storia, un monumento costruito in tempo reale a una rivoluzione che si stava sbriciolando nello spazio di un sogno, e quindi necessariamente un'opera immateriale, di cui non sarebbe rimasta nessuna traccia fisica, un'idea, un concetto. È stata una singolarità? Ovvero un evento estremo, nel quale le normali leggi dello spazio-tempo subiscono alterazioni unìche? O più semplicemente il climax, l'inevitabile orgasmo di un'eccitazione generazionale durata qualche anno?"
CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE I couldn’t believe him, acting so cheeky and full of himself in class. When I’m sitting here doing all of the hard work, Asher Zane is off playing drinking games with all his other hooky-participating buddies. It isn’t easy being a college student, and Asher makes it even harder for me. Not only do I envy his easy life, but he’s terribly good looking as well. I want to hate him, but for some reason… I just can’t. And now he’s gone on and invited me to go to some game night party at a friend’s house. Just what was I thinking when I accepted? This can only spell out trouble for the both of us…and probably everyone else involved... BONUS: Special free bonus story inside! ♥ Warning: This story contains mature themes and language. It is intended to be enjoyed by an 18+ audience only. FREE for Kindle Unlimited Readers!
More than 11,000 babies are born every day in the United States. Their parents prepare the room, buy all the equipment and diapers, go to birthing classes, find a pediatrician and anxiously await their arrival. Rarely do these parents have any preparation for the sleep deprivation before them. Kim West, author of "Good Night, Sleep Tight" and nationally known as "The SleepLady (tm)" has written 52 Sleep Secrets for Babies" to help new parents learn what they need to do to get their babies - and themselves - the sleep they need. The Sleep Lady(R)approach is founded on my general beliefs as a family therapist: I'm a proponent of parents developing and maintaining a secure attachment with their child while creating a family life where everyone is happy, healthy and well-rested. My sleep approach builds on step-by-step changes in bedtime, napping and overnight routines so that a child can develop sleep independence and sleep more soundly and longer while feeling confident that Mom and Dad will be nearby and responsive. It's a gentler alternative for families who can't stomach the idea of letting their babies cry it out; for families who have tried Ferber without success; and for families who had success earlier on with crying it out but find that it isn't working now. I have also worked with families who believe in co-sleeping but whose babies don't really sleep all that well, even nestled snugly with Mom and Dad. And I've guided many families who did co-sleep for a few months or a few years but now want the family bed to revert to a marital one. 52 Sleep Secrets for Babies summarizes much of what I have learned from working with hundreds of families and that I now teach to the new parents I see in my practice and through my website. So many have asked me for a quick and easy to follow guide to helping their babies learn to sleep and to help them prevent problems down the road, I have put together this little book that you can carry with you anywhere and refer to before and after sleep problems arise.
It is the year 1262. After saving Ciri from the Brokilon dryads, Geralt ventures north. At the same time a war breaks out with Nilfgaard, a war that would end with the battle of Sodden Hill, which would supposedly claim the life of Yennefer of Vengerberg. The realms of the extreme North remained neutral, and the land is relatively peaceful. The Principality of Malleore, where this story is set, lies on the banks of the Braa river in the foothills of the Dragon Mountains. The small, heavily fortified castle of House Creigiau is located on the bank of the Crea, one of the Braa’s inlets. The mountainous region was ideal for shepherding, so the Barons of Creigiau spent centuries trading in wool. However, around 1251, the castellan Lazare convinced his Baron to switch to logging instead. This industry fuels the busy shipyards of neighboring Kovir. Esterad Thyssen, the king of Kovir, and his wife Zuleyka are the followers of the “Good Book” and its author, the prophet Lebioda. It is likely that trade relations with Kovir brought the cult to Creigiau. As it is often the case, the peasants did not abandon their worship of older, pagan deities, like the locally revered leshy.
