Jill stepped into the nightclub ready to relieve the stress shed collected after a busy day. A couple of handsome men caught her eye and activated her sexual imagination. It had, after all, been over a year since shed had a relationship with a man. She wondered what some of those good-looking guys could do to her and for a split second her imagination drifted to someplace dangerous. But in the end those naughty thoughts were interrupted by her friend, Mina, waving her over to a booth in the rear. With her olive-skin and long black hair, she would have been hard to miss. Jill stepped over and plopped herself into a seat. Glad I finally found you, Jill said. I forgot how crowded this place gets on a Friday night. Yeah, this is the night the horny frat boys come out to play. As a matter of fact, Ive been hit on three times just in the ten minutes Ive been waiting for you. Glad I got here when I did. Me too, Mina said. Oh, Ive taken the liberty of ordering for you. I know rum and coke is what settles you down after a stressful day. Yeah, and I could definitely use some settling down today.

Its enough to make want to put my fist through somebodys - Excuse me, maam, a man interrupted, stepping up to Jill. His boyish face seemed stretched with worry...
Searching for Chipeta:The Story of a Ute and Her People Vickie Leigh Krudwig
A memoir of Tom´s journey around the world to discover the complete story of Oskar Schindler and those on his now-famous list.In 1980, Tom Keneally walked into a store in Beverly Hills owned by Polish Jew Leopold Pfefferberg Page to buy a new briefcase. For the next few years, Tom´s life was taken over by this charismatic and driven man, known as Poldek, and the story he wanted shared. The resulting book was Schindler´s Ark, which went on to win the Booker Prize and ultimately became the Oscar-award-winning film Schindler´s List.Tom and Poldek travelled across the US, Germany, Israel, Austria and Poland, interviewing survivors and discovering their extraordinary stories. Searching for Schindler is very much Tom´s journey; he reflects on his early days as a successful but less than confident writer, and how this book, the film it became and the people he met, changed his and his family´s lives forever. 1.

Still Searching for Pipe Dreams is the second in a series following Rick Newcombe´s first book, the best-selling In Search of Pipe Dreams. Why would anyone still smoke a pipe in the 21st century when all forms of smoking are being banned around the world? Why are so many young people drawn to pipe collecting and artistic pipemaking with such intensity and passion? And why are pipe shows suddenly sold out, with waiting lists for tables? These young pipe enthusiasts are from America, Germany, Russia, Japan, China, Italy, Denmark and all over the world. Unlike mass-marketed cigarettes, pipe smoking has a rich tradition that goes back many centuries, and the author predicts it is the only form of smoking that will last many centuries into the future. He contends that moderate pipe smoking, without inhaling, promotes relaxation and clear thinking, and it serves as an ideal antidote to stress that is much safer than the tranquilizers that are so freely dispensed today. Unlike cigar and cigarette smokers, pipe collectors actually save their pipes. They clean and polish them and put them in racks or display cabinets. If they are broken, they have them repaired. Most pipe smokers remember when they bought each pipe in their collection, and every time they take a pipe out, it is a reminder of the past, to be enjoyed in the present, for many years into the future. This book also is inspiring because of Rick Newcombe´s enthusiasm and optimism, which shine through in every chapter and make it a fast-paced and enjoyable listen. 1. Language: English.

How does a certain place influence the self? Could one argue that Pauls territoriality and mission strategies are Jerusalem-centered? Does the letter to the Romans, as an insight into Pauls mission strategy, reveal the apostles central territorial paradigm and offer explanations for the creation of Pauls theology as it affects his mission? In dealing with these questions, Ksenija Magda analyzes if and how spatial theories developed by the geographer Robert D. Sack can be utilized for the clarification of long-standing questions in Pauline theology, for example his motivation to evangelize the Gentiles, the center of Pauls theology, the relationship to his own people and the origin of his doctrines on justification. In doing so, the author also shows how conflicting issues can be resolved.
