by Gareth Evans

Hay una introducción a los acordes de potencia y a los acordes de cejilla, en los que los acordes de cejilla se muestran como versiones más sencillas de las formas de los acordes de cejilla completa. En la parte posterior de Acordes de guitarra para principiantes hay una lista de canciones sugeridas que contienen acordes del libro. ¡Consigue tu copia hoy! "Se ve muy bien. Me gustan especialmente las diferentes formas de tocar el acorde de A. Los ejercicios de calentamiento para la flexibilidad también son buenos.

Across the Sahara: Tracks, Trade and Cross-Cultural Exchange in Libya

by Klaus Braun Jacqueline Passon

This open access book provides a multi-perspective approach to the caravan trade in the Sahara during the 19th century. Based on travelogues from European travelers, recently found Arab sources, historical maps and results from several expeditions, the book gives an overview of the historical periods of the caravan trade as well as detailed information about the infrastructure which was necessary to establish those trade networks. Included are a variety of unique historical and recent maps as well as remote sensing images of the important trade routes and the corresponding historic oases. To give a deeper understanding of how those trading networks work, aspects such as culturally influenced concepts of spatial orientation are discussed. The book aims to be a useful reference for the caravan trade in the Sahara, that can be recommended both to students and to specialists and researchers in the field of Geography, History and African Studies.

Acsquidentally In Love (Sucker For Love Mysteries #1)

by K.L. Hiers

A Sucker For Love MysteryNothing brings two men—or one man and an ancient god—together like revenge. Private investigator Sloane sacrificed his career in law enforcement in pursuit of his parents’ murderer. Like them, he is a follower of long-forgotten gods, practicing their magic and offering them his prayers… not that he’s ever gotten a response. Until now. Azaethoth the Lesser might be the patron of thieves and tricksters, but he takes care of his followers. He’s come to earth to avenge the killing of one of his favorites, and maybe charm the pants off the cute detective Fate has placed in his path. If he has his way, they’ll do much more than bring a killer to justice. In fact, he’s sure he’s found the man he’ll spend his immortal life with. Sloane’s resolve is crumbling under Azaethoth’s surprising sweetness, and the tentacles he sometimes glimpses escaping the god’s mortal form set his imagination alight. But their investigation gets stranger and deadlier with every turn. To survive, they’ll need a little faith… and a lot of mystical firepower.

Fox’s entourage of political handlers may lie for a living, but Demarkian has a way of ferreting out the truth, and he will nab the killer before the last firework sounds.

William Esper, one of the most celebrated acting teachers of our time, takes us through his step-by-step approach to the central challenge of advanced acting work: creating and playing a character.

Esper's training builds on Sanford Meisner's legendary exercises, a world-renowned technique that Esper further developed through his long association with Meisner and the decades he has spent training a host of distinguished actors. His approach is flexible enough to apply to any role, helping actors to create characters with truthful and compelling inner lives.

Add Value: Discover Your Values, Find Your Worth, Gain Fulfillment in Your Personal and Professional Life

by Mark Carter

Why truly knowing what we value—and why—is the real basis of success Listen closely: you’ll notice that words like ’value’ lie at the heart of many of the important conversations taking place around you. Whether they’re about personal development, business or government, value is everywhere. In business, we hear about ’adding value’, in our personal lives, we’re told about the importance of ’self-worth’. But how many of us know what these concepts truly mean—and how do we know when we’re getting them right? Mark Carter is a sought-after speaker—including for TEDx—and professional trainer for blue-chip companies all over the world. His passion for understanding what makes us do the things we do have convinced him that what makes or breaks all of our ventures is having a full moral understanding of what we value and why—and living up to it. When we bias towards one set of values—for example the win-at-all-costs sagas of the Banking Royal Commission and Belle Gibson—we alienate others and lose out overall. Develop your skills of self-reflection and awareness Build your personal and business legacy Know how to cultivate lasting relationships Discover why human skills are even more necessary for success in the age of AI No person is an island and living in accordance with our values has real-world effects. Whatever your ambition, the wisdom found in Add Value will help you ignite the human potential within—and help us all to build a better world.

Addicted to Outrage: How Thinking Like a Recovering Addict Can Heal the Country

by Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck—author of thirteen #1 New York Times bestsellers—issues a startling challenge to people on both sides of the aisle to give up our addiction to outrage. <P><P>America is addicted to outrage, we’re at the height of a twenty-year bender, and we need an intervention. In Addicted to Outrage, New York Times bestselling author Glenn Beck addresses how America has become more and more divided—both politically and socially. Americans are now less accepting, less forgiving, and have lost faith in many of the country’s signature ideals, he says. We are quick to point a judgmental finger at the opposing party, are unwilling to doubt their own ideologies, and refuse to have any self-awareness whatsoever. <P><P>Beck states that our current downward spiral will ultimately lead to the destruction of everything America has fought so hard to preserve. This is not simply a Republican problem. This is not simply a Democratic problem. This is everyone’s burden, and we need to think like recovering addicts and change. With a nod to a traditional twelve-step program, each chapter encourages self-reflection and growth and shows us the way to a more hopeful, happy future. <P><P>Beck draws from his own life experiences and includes relevant examples for each step, from families who learned to forgive killers to remembering to believe in something greater than ourselves to understanding the importance of humility. Addicted to Outrage is a timely and necessary guide for how Americans, right and left, must change to survive. <P><b>A New York Times Bestseller</b>

Addition and Subtraction: A Cognitive Perspective (Psychology Revivals)

by Thomas P. Carpenter; James M. Moser; Thomas A. Romberg

A hallmark of much of the research on children’s thinking in the 1970s had been the focus on explicit content domains. Much of this research had been represented by an eclectic collection of studies sampled from a variety of disciplines and content areas. However, in the few years before this publication, research in several content domains has begun to coalesce into a coherent body of knowledge. Originally published in 1982, the chapters in this work represent one of the first attempts to bring together the perspectives of a variety of different researchers investigating a specific, well defined content domain. This book presents theoretical views and research findings of a group of international scholars who are investigating the early acquisition of addition and subtraction skills by young children. Together, the contributors bring a blend of psychology, educational psychology, and mathematics education to this topic. Fields of interest such as information processing, artificial intelligence, early childhood, and classroom teaching and learning are included in this blend.

Addressing Race-Based Stress in Therapy with Black Clients: Using Multicultural and Dialectical Behavior Therapy Techniques

by Monica M. Johnson Michelle L. Melton

Despite Black Americans being at high risk for negative mental health symptoms due to racism and other chronic stresses, disparities persist in the provision of mental health services to this population. This book addresses that gap in clinical practice by explicitly calling attention to the experience of race-based stress in the Black community. Johnson and Melton urge mental health practitioners to action in promoting societal understanding, affirmation, and appreciation of multiculturalism against the damaging effects of individual, institutional, and societal racism, prejudice, and all forms of oppression based on stereotyping and discrimination. Chapters include worksheets, vignettes, and case studies to provide a practical framework for implementing an effective, nonpathological approach to ameliorating the damaging effects of race-based trauma and stress. This book will give tools and strategies for mental health professionals to responsibly use scientific and professional knowledge to improve the condition of individuals, communities, and, by extension, society.
