What’s the Use?
amazon.co.uk
Have you ever felt as if the world was closing in on you? Do you feel squeezed by the pressures and stress of life? Whats The Use is a personal testimony focusing on these very issues. It deals with the hopelessness of feeling like you are trying to swim against the tide. Life throws us all some curves at times. But when they come with such frequency and unyielding ferocity that we feel incapable of dealing with it, a definite decision has to be made. We ask the question, God, why are you doing this to me? Are you trying to tell me something? Often the answer is yes, as this author found out.  read more

What’s in a name? Naming in the T.V.-series LOST
amazon.co.uk
Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 2,0, University of Cologne (Philosophische Fakultt / Englische Seminar 1), course: Onomastics, language: English, abstract: 1Intro2Names of theotechny2.1Benjamin Linus2.2James (Sawyer) Ford2.3Jacob2.4Desmond and Penelope2.5Dharma2.6Christian Shephard3Famous names3.1Henry Gale3.2Daniel Faraday3.3Desmond David Hume3.4Danielle Rousseau3.5Further references4Reference to literature4.1The adventures of Tom Sawyer4.2The Wizard of Oz4.3Lord of the flies4.4Addendum5Anagrams5.1Ethan Rome5.2Mittelos Bioscience5.3Herarat Aviation5.3.1Amelia Earhart5.3.2A variation earth5.4Further Anagrams6Mixed patterns6.1Gale Island6.2Linus6.3Sayid Jarrah6.4Claire Littelton6.5Jacks Tattoo6.6Literal meaning of names7ConclusionUntil the ninth century it was not likely to have a first and a last name, but by that time things started to change. In Venice the indication of surnames began in this time period, France (10th/11th century) and the German-speaking area (12th century) followed this example (Kohlheim 1996: 1280), so the common practice of naming changed and thenceforth people were called by both, forename and surname. This giving of names led to the science of onomastics representing a separate discipline (Wittkowski 1995: 289) -, whose purpose basically is "die Geschichte und den Gebrauch eines Namens zu klren und mgliche Schlsse daraus zu ziehen" (Hansack 2004: 51), as the character of naming had caused people to think about the meaning of personal names for centuries (Eichler 1995: 2). Such name-interpreting can also take the role of a poetic device and by this means as literary onomastic (Hansack 2004: 51) function as a link between linguistic and literary studies bearing on "the study of the way names function in fiction" (Ashley 1989: 198). The following term paper will take up this and consequently concentrate on the names of the characters in the TV series LOST. This idea came up after reading an article by Matthew Gilbert, who quoted Damon Lindelof - one of the makers of LOST - mentioning that not one name of the islands inhabitants was chosen incidentally but that every single name had a special meaning concerning the storyline (Gilbert 2005). Lindelof and co-producer J. J. Abrahams used "names that gesture outward from the series" in a way that "name[s] assists [the] definition of character[s], suggesting clues of [] personality" and are an "entrance to that what [they] represent[s]; direction; past, current or future position" (Rowden 2000: 115) and therefore played "the name game quite shrewdly" (Gilbert 2005).  read more

What’s the Score Mate?
amazon.co.uk
This is a true story about two guys, both Fly Fishermen who lived half a world apart and had never met each other before, until they were thrown together on a saltwater fly-fishing trip out of Bamaga which is a rather isolated part of Northern Queensland up near the top of Cape York on the Gulf of Carpentaria about 80 kilometres from Indonesia. John Giacon who instigated this story came from New Zealand where he was a Director of New Zealand Angling Limited and the organiser of this particular trip; Chris was a Practicing Solicitor from Durban in South Africa. John formed a personal opinion that Chris needed all the practise he could get! So this tale was born out of several incidents, which has scoring as the common denominator. Please be aware that the sport of Fly-fishing is renowned for the camaraderie it generates between the participants, it is very often called The Brotherhood of the Angle. Despite the Fellowship angle (yes a pun), even camaraderie can generate opportunities for fly-fishing adherents to score off each other.For example, who catches the first fish, the biggest or the most, the species and even technicalities such as the lightest weight leader materials, the rods or the reels, the better caster, or indeed the difficulty of the cast. These are all scoring points and they are all well used.But as this tale progresses, you will see there was quite a bit more to the camaraderie between John and Chris. They were both passionate followers of rugby and of course New Zealand and South Africa are traditional foes, and to exacerbate the rivalry, both nations were embroiled in the Super 12 competition of 2005, and if that was not enough fuel for the fire they were also locked in the Tri Nations competition with Australia. So dear readers Scoring is a prime factor you will need to be aware of as you join the protagonists and their mates in this true and epic tale.Like most rugby games, this book has two halves, which has been necessitated by the length of time the story took to tell. The first half spans from 2005 to 2008, and the second half from 2009 to 2014. To be honest the one up-manship is still happening, but I have chosen to end the second half in 2013 simply because the All Blacks were undefeated Champions in that year and you might think I am quitting while I am ahead! How good that feels!  read more

Sex! What’s the Point?
amazon.co.uk
The idea foe this book started when I was talking to a friend of mine. She was an attractive, sweet, funny nurse who always seemed to have guys flirting with her anytime she went out. It was my impression that she could have any guy she wanted. And, I really do think I was right. However, she is one of those girls that constantly has to have a man in her life; doesn't matter what kind of man, cute or ugly, good or bad, just as long as there's a man around. She would go on a date with anyone who asked her out, and I mean anyone. After the date, she would bring him home with her, have sex with him, then the guy would basically move in that night. Oh sure, they'd live in bliss for a few weeks during they honeymoon phase, then she'd spend the next few months of her life miserable, supporting some bum who didn't work, cheated on her and, and times, was abusive. She would finally break it off with that guy and then the next man that asked her out...the whole cycle would start again. I asked her why she continued to do this, and she replied by saying that she just gets lonely. When I asked about joining a group or getting together with friends, then her story changed to "I miss the kissing and cuddling and just laying next to someone". I then asked why she doesn't just cuddle with them, why go all the way to having sex. Then, the truth came out! "Because I like sex. It feels good. It's hard to stop once you get going". Ah...now we are getting somewhere!So this got me thinking, what is the point of sex? Is it only to achieve that brief moment of utter bliss? Or, are we trying to feel emotionally close to someone? Are we trying to fill some other void in our life? Is it strictly to pro-create?  read more

Teenage Parenthood: What’s the Problem?
amazon.co.uk
Teenage parenting may be more of an opportunity than a catastrophe.Policy makers and media claim that teenage parenthood ruins young peoples lives and those of their children, as well as threatening wider social and moral breakdown. Yet research increasingly shows that parenthood is not necessarily a disaster for young women and young men, and indeed can sometimes improve their lives. Why is that becoming a mother or father can make sense for and be valued by some young people? And why is that policy makers ignore the research evidence that teenage parenthood is not an inevitable catastrophe?Teenage Parenting Whats the Problem? presents recent quantitative and qualitative research on teenage motherhood and fatherhood, in an accessible manner. Contributors look at:the relationship between age, pre-existing disadvantage and social outcomes for mothers and their childrenthe gulf between government policy assumptions and the understandings of teenage parents and their familiesthe variable ways in which young mothers and fathers ethnic identification articulates with gender, class and agehow young parents see themselves as just another mum or dad when it comes to parenting, education and employmentcommonalities in resilience and family support for teenage parents between and over generations, links between experiences of parenting and self-identity, and how these can be affected by support from family and friends, and by formal service delivery.These issues are placed in the context of a wide-ranging review of research evidence on teenage parenting, and a consideration of why government policy seems to ignore this evidence.This book will appeal to academics, policymakers and professionals with an interest in new and challenging perspectives on policies around teenage parenthood and on young mothers and fathers experiences.  read more

What’s Wrong with the World
amazon.co.uk
In this important book, G.K. Chesterton offers a remarkably perceptive analysis of social and moral issues, even more relevant today than in his own time. With a light, humorous tone but a deadly serious philosophy, he comments on errors in education, on feminism vs. true womanhood, on the importance of the child, and other issues, using incisive arguments against the trendsetters' assaults on the common man and the family.Chesterton possessed the genius to foresee the dangers of implementing modernist proposals. He knew that lax moral standards would lead to the dehumanization of man. In this book, he staunchly defends the family against those ideas and institutions that would subvert it and thereby deliver man into the hands of the servile state. In addressing what is wrong, he also shows clearly what is right, and how to change things in that direction.  read more

What’s Whole in Whole Language in the 21st Century?
amazon.co.uk
Whats Whole in Whole Language in the 21st Century? includes a new introduction by Ken Goodman, commentary by Michael Rosen, and excerpts from a series of never published interviews conducted in 1992-1993 by Denny Taylor of renowned reading scholars who knew Ken and Yetta Goodman, and who spoke freely about their lives together as well as their research and teaching.The insights of these scholars, who include Frank Smith and Jeanne Chall, are profound. They shift the political discourse of reading research and teaching young children to read. Ousting the propaganda, they shed light on what really happened to progressive educators and whole language teachers at the end of the 20th century.The original version of Goodmans best-selling book sold two hundred and fifty thousand copies, became a worldwide phenomenon, and was translated into French, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese and Chinese. It became the handbook for the revolution for equality and justice for all children that occurred in classrooms around the world. Teachers were inspired to put aside commercial materials that were based on very limited understandings of reading and writing, and instead placed children and their very natural curiosity about language and learning at the center of classroom activity.In the 1990s, the agenda for public education shifted away from developmentally appropriate teaching and learning and prominently featured the goals of curriculum standardization, test-based accountability, and a reward-and-punish policy toward school performance. Although conservative ideology and the thirst for profit were factors at play, the real motive was to ensure that U.S. corporations would remain competitive in the 21st century global market. They would achieve this by turning schools into workforce development systems that would produce future workers with very narrowly defined literacy proficiencies and a predilection for passivity and compliance. This is the experience of most public school children today, whose lives and academic development are so negatively impacted by the Common Core.There has never been a more critical time for teachers to read Whats Whole in Whole Language in the 21st Century? It is as prescient today as it was when Goodman first wrote it.  read more
