El indie es un estilo musical de los 90 que, ya bien entrado el siglo XXI, se ha convertido en una forma de vida. Ser indie es vivir de manera relajada, amar la naturaleza a la vez que las nuevas tecnologías, identificarse con lo retro y ser un adicto a los festivales.
En estas páginas encontraremos todos los iconos que conforman la cultura de los indie –música, ropa, arte, literatura…– pasados por el filtro de las explosivas ilustraciones de Ricardo Cavolo y del sentido del humor de Mario Suárez.
Paul Robeson was a towering figure in American culture, conquering many disparate venues--from football and film to law to Shakespeare. An extraordinary athlete-scholar-actor-singer, Robeson also became a crusader for human rights. And though he was admired by many, his controversial support of the Soviet Union during the Cold War and the era of McCarthyism led to ostracism and his declining health. In Robeson: An American Ballad, Arnold H. Lubasch chronicles the remarkable life of this twentieth-century original. In this concise and readable account, Lubasch--a New York Times veteran for almost 40 years--reports on Robeson's life story more accurately and clearly than any previous books. In addition to detailing the highs and lows of Robeson's life and career, Lubasch offers several personal anecdotes about this American icon, and includes commentary on the 100th-anniversary celebration of Robeson's birth. This engaging work will be of interest to virtually everyone, but especially to scholars and students of U.S. and African American history and culture.
Writing together with Timothy Wyllie, the angel Georgia details the events of Earth’s ancient history from 16,500 BC to 8,000 BC • Chronicles the disappearance of Lemuria, the rise of Atlantean technology and piracy, and the first wave of rebel angels incarnating as Atlantean slaves • Explains the 3 eras of Atlantis and how the island was finally destroyed in 1198 BC • Interwoven throughout with observations about Timothy Wyllie’s current and previous lives, such as his years of involvement with the Process Church After 200 millennia of celestial quarantine in the wake of Lucifer’s angelic revolt, Earth and the rebel angels isolated here are being welcomed back into the benevolent and caring Multiverse. Writing together with Timothy Wyllie, Georgia--a rebel angel who took on the role of Watcher after the rebellion--provides her personal account of Earth from 16,500 BC to 8,000 BC, a period that encompasses the first two eras of Atlantis. Georgia shares her experiences being present for the final disappearance of Lemuria and the loss of their spiritual system. She describes advanced Lemurian technology that was designed for the betterment of the Earth and its people, and was then lost, and the aggressive piracy of the Atlanteans, who preyed on the Lemurian survivors. Detailing the three eras of Atlantis and how the island’s final destruction was in 1198 BC, she explains the rise of Atlantis as a technological power.
She reveals the quarrels between the Pleiadians and the Sirians during this period and explores the myths of the Anunnaki, reputed to have arrived on Earth to mine for gold. Georgia interweaves her story with observations about Timothy Wyllie’s current and previous lives, focusing here on his involvement with the Process Church as well as his experiences with bizarrely orchestrated orgies, psychometrics, and psychedelic culture in Europe in the 1970s. Georgia shares her words, in part, to awaken some of the more than 100 million rebel angels currently living their human lives, most unaware of their angelic heritage and struggling with their sense of being different. She reveals how a mortal incarnation for a rebel angel is an opportunity to redeem the past and help prepare the way for the transformation of global consciousness now beginning as the rebel-held planets, including Earth, are being welcomed back into the Multiverse.

Διαβάζοντας Παπαδιαμάντη στις μέρες μας, γνωρίζουμε όχι μόνο έναν κόσμο που φεύγει, αν δεν έχει κιόλας φύγει, αλλά προπάντων μια στάση ζωής, έναν τρόπο ένα βλέπουμε γεγονότα, ανθρώπους και καταστάσεις στην κάθε φορά επίκαιρη πραγματικότητα. Πώς βιώνεται π.χ. η μετοχή στην ανθρώπινη κοινότητα, η συμπάθεια στη σχέση των ανθρώπων με τα ποικίλα δεινά τους, η διάκριση και επιλογή ανάμεσα στο αληθινό και στο ψεύτικο. Μια στάση ζωής σμιλεμένη μέσα από αιώνες παράδοσης και πολιτισμού, στέρεη και πάντα πολύτιμη. Θησαυρός που μπορούν να τον ανακαλύψουν και οι καινούριες γενιές μέσα στις ιστορίες του μεγάλου μας συγγραφέα και να χαρούν την κριτική και ποιητική συνάμα σκέψη του, το χιούμορ και την απαράμιλλη εκφραστική του τέχνη.
A terrible darkness has fallen upon Jacob Weisz's beloved Germany. The Nazi regime, under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, has surged to power and now hold Germany by the throat. All non-Aryans -- especially Jews like Jacob and his family -- are treated like dogs.When tragedy strikes during one terrible night of violence, Jacob flees and joins rebel forces working to undermine the regime. But after a raid goes horribly wrong, Jacob finds himself in a living nightmare -- trapped in a crowded, stinking car on the train to the Auschwitz death camp. As World War II rages and Hitler begins implementing his "final solution" to systematically and ruthly exterminate the Jewish people, Jacob must rely on his wits and a God he's not sure he believes in to somehow escape from Auschwitz and alert the world to the Nazi's atrocities before Fascism overtakes all of Europe. The fate of millions hangs in the balance.
It’s no surprise that sugar has been on our minds for millennia. First cultivated in New Guinea around 8,000 B.C.E., this addictive sweetener has since come to dominate our appetites—whether in candy, desserts, soft drinks, or even pasta sauces—for better and for worse. In this book, Andrew F. Smith offers a fascinating history of this simultaneously beloved and reviled ingredient, holding its incredible value as a global commodity up against its darker legacies of slavery and widespread obesity.
As Smith demonstrates, sugar’s past is chockfull of determined adventurers: relent sugar barons and plantation owners who worked alongside plant breeders, food processors, distributors, and politicians to build a business based on our cravings. Exploring both the sugarcane and sugar beet industries, he tells story after story of those who have made fortunes and those who have met demise all because of sugar’s simple but profound hold on our palates. Delightful and surprisingly action-packed, this book offers a layered and definitive tale of sugar and the many people who have been caught in its spell—from barons to slaves, from chefs to the count among us born with that insatiable devil, the sweet tooth.
