الأولاد المشاغبون

by سو كولي

كافئي نفسك

by دانيال ستيل جودي صفير

كان صباحا هادئا ومشمسا من شهر نوفمبر عندما أبعدت كارول باربر نظرها عن شاشة الكمبيوتر وحد قت إلى حديقة منزلها في بيل - آير. كان منزلا حجريا كبيرا عاشت فيه طوال خمس عشرة سنة. الغرفة الزجاجية المشمسة التي تستعملها بمثابة مكتب تطل على شجيرات الورود التي زرعتها والنافورة والبركة الصغيرة التي تعكس صورة السماء. المشهد هادئ والمنزل صامت. بالكاد تحركت يداها فوق لوحة مفاتيح الكمبيوتر خلال الساعة الأخيرة. الأمر محبط فعلا . فعلى الرغم من مسيرتها الطويلة والناجحة في الأفلام كانت تحاول تأليف كتابها الأول. لقد كتبت العديد من القصص القصيرة على مر السنوات لكنها لم تنشر أبدا أيا منها. لقد حاولت ذات مرة المشاركة في تأليف سيناريو فيلم. طوال فترة زواجها تحدثت هي وزوجها المرحوم شون عن إعداد فيلم سينمائي معا لكنهما لم يحققا أبدا ذلك. كانا مشغولين كثيرا في إنجاز أمور أخرى كل في مجال عمله الأساسي. كان شون منتجا ومخرجا بينما كانت هي ممثلة. لكنها لم تكن مجرد ممثلة عادية. كارول باربر نجمة كبيرة وقد حققت النجومية منذ كانت في الثامنة عشرة. أصبح عمرها الآن خمسين سنة واحتفلت بذكرى ميلادها منذ شهرين. وبمحض إرادتها لم تشارك في أي فيلم سينمائي منذ ثلاث سنوات. ففي عمرها وحتى مع جمالها الذي لا يزال مميزا أصبحت الأدوار الجيدة نادرة.

مخاطر العولمة

by روبرت إسحاق سعيد الحسنية

ظهر "الرجل العادي" في أوائل القرن العشرين بعقل عادي وكان شخصا راضيا بالرخاء المادي والكسل بدلا من الكفاح من أجل التفو ق أو امتلاك السلطة . أما في نهاية القرن العشرين المنصرم فقد تميزت بما يمكن تسميته بـ "ثورة الأثرياء" ضد هذه المفاهيم سواء كانت بالمفهوم البرجوازي أم الاشتراكي. رو جت هذه الردة المحافظة التي تزعمتها رئيسة الوزراء البريطانية مارغريت تاتشر والرئيس الأميركي رونالد ريغان في الثمانينيات مقولة أن الأسواق الرأسمالية الحرة هي مثال مجر د لأنها محر ك المرونة الفردية والحرية.

100 Words Every High School Graduate Should Know

by The Editors of the American Heritage Dictionaries

In addition to carefully choosing a well-balanced mix of terms from A to Z, the book balances straightforward vocabulary entries, such as bellicose, loquacious, and vehement, with words chosen directly from the disciplines of learning, such as parabola and hypotenuse from mathematics, gerrymander and enfranchise from civics, and photosynthesis and hemoglobin from biology. As a result, students often have an easier time with the list than adults, especially if they've been paying attention in their classes! The book also offers exercises at the end of the text to assist in the incorporation of the words into one's active vocabulary.

13 Days Of Midnight

by Leo Hunt

In a devilishly dark and funny debut, a teen finds himself the unwitting beneficiary of eight enslaved and angry ghosts seeking bloody vengeance. When Luke Manchett's estranged father dies unexpectedly, he leaves his son a dark inheritance: a collection of eight restless spirits, known as his Host, who want revenge for their long enslavement. Once they figure out that Luke has no clue how to manage them, they become increasingly belligerent, and eventually mutiny. Halloween (the night when ghosts reach the height of their power) is fast approaching, and Luke knows his Host is planning something far more trick than treat. Armed with only his father's indecipherable notes, a locked copy of The Book of Eight, and help from school outcast Elza Moss, Luke has just thirteen days to uncover the closely guarded secrets of black magic and send his unquiet spirits to their eternal rest--or join their ghostly ranks himself.

1650-1850: Ideas, Aesthetics, and Inquiries in the Early Modern Era (Volume 24) (1650-1850 Ser. #Vol. 4)

by Kevin L. Cope

1650-1850 publishes essays and reviews from and about a wide range of academic disciplines—literature (both in English and other languages), philosophy, art history, history, religion, and science. Interdisciplinary in scope and approach, 1650-1850 emphasizes aesthetic manifestations and applications of ideas, and encourages studies that move between the arts and the sciences—between the “hard” and the “humane” disciplines. The editors encourage proposals for “special features” that bring together five to seven essays on focused themes within its historical range, from the Interregnum to the end of the first generation of Romantic writers. While also being open to more specialized or particular studies that match up with the general themes and goals of the journal, 1650-1850 is in the first instance a journal about the artful presentation of ideas that welcomes good writing from its contributors. First published in 1994, 1650-1850 is currently in its 24th volume. ISSN 1065-3112. Published by Bucknell University Press. Distributed worldwide by Rutgers University Press.
