Wave Archive

by Emmalea Russo

Is it possible to archive the invisible symptoms of an illness? Is the archive emotional? Emmalea Russo's Wave Archive moves between essay and poetry while also pondering the mind-body connection and the unreliability of thought patterns and histories. Here, Russo invokes her own experiences with seizures, photographs and art-making, archival and indexical processes, brain waves, and the very personal need to document and store while simultaneously questioning the reliability of memory and language. Drawing upon the history of epilepsy in both ancient and modern brain treatments, Wave Archive disrupts and restores the archive over and over again, exploring the very edges of consciousness.

Topics in Clifford Analysis: Special Volume in Honor of Wolfgang Sprößig (Trends in Mathematics)

by Swanhild Bernstein

Quaternionic and Clifford analysis are an extension of complex analysis into higher dimensions. The unique starting point of Wolfgang Sprößig’s work was the application of quaternionic analysis to elliptic differential equations and boundary value problems. Over the years, Clifford analysis has become a broad-based theory with a variety of applications both inside and outside of mathematics, such as higher-dimensional function theory, algebraic structures, generalized polynomials, applications of elliptic boundary value problems, wavelets, image processing, numerical and discrete analysis. The aim of this volume is to provide an essential overview of modern topics in Clifford analysis, presented by specialists in the field, and to honor the valued contributions to Clifford analysis made by Wolfgang Sprößig throughout his career.

Extreme Weather Events and Human Health: International Case Studies

by Rais Akhtar

This edited book assesses the impacts of various extreme weather events on human health and development from a global perspective, and includes several case studies in various geographical regions around the globe. Covering all continents, it describes the impact of extreme weather conditions such as flash floods, heatwaves, cold waves, droughts, forest fires, strong winds and storms in both developing and developed countries. The contributing authors also investigate the spread of diseases and the risk to food security caused by drought and flooding. Further, the book discusses the economic damage resulting from natural disasters including hurricanes. It has been estimated that in 2017 natural disasters and climate change resulted in economic losses of 309 billion US dollars. Scientists also predict that if nothing is done to curb the effects of climate change, in Europe the death toll due to weather disasters could rise 50-fold by the end of the 21st century, with extreme heat alone causing more than 150,000 deaths a year, as the report on global warming of 1.5°C warns that China, Russia and Canada’s current climate policies would steer the world above a catastrophic 5°C of warming by the end of 2100. As such, the book highlights how the wellbeing of different populations is threatened by extreme events now and in the foreseeable future.

Instructional Leadership and Leadership for Learning in Schools: Understanding Theories of Leading (Palgrave Studies on Leadership and Learning in Teacher Education)

by Tony Townsend

This book offers a nuanced understanding of how two different theories of leadership can be applied to achieve better results within schools. These leadership theories – Instructional Leadership and Leadership for Learning – have assisted our recent understanding of school leadership. This book interrogates the theories themselves as well as their impact on education systems around the world. It also looks at how they can be practically applied to educate school leaders within their schools and beyond, building partnerships with families, schools and other community agencies serving students. In doing so, the book considers the possibility that these theories are not opposed, but two sides of the same coin. Both are underpinned by the question ‘how do we provide the best educational experience for students?’. The answer to this question will determine the way leaders go about the task of leading schools. This important book will be of interest and value to students and scholars of educational leadership, as well as educational leaders themselves.

Un cadeau de la famille

by Marta Girón

Le premier roman qui traite des répercussions de notre héritage énergétique Très souvent il nous arrive des choses que nous ne savons expliquer, des situations qui nous font souffrir parce que nous ne les comprenons pas. Nous en arrivons même à accuser le destin de notre malheur ou notre tristesse, de notre maladie ou celle d'un être cher, de nos carences ou limitations. Mais, que se passerait-il si tout cela était un cadeau qui se transmet de génération en génération pour soigner quelqu'un d'autre pour nos ancêtres ? Que se passerait-il si nos expériences étaient le fruit d'expériences passées, de notre mémoire transgénérationnelle ? Que se passerait-il si les troubles physiques apportaient un message qui peut être biodécodé ? Que se passerait-il si nous devenions conscient de toutes ces expériences et si nous soignions nos problèmes? Nous sentirions-nous libres ? Récupérerions-nous notre santé ? Reconduirions-nous notre chemin et trouverions-nous de nouveaux objectifs ? Ce livre est basé sur une histoire réelle, sur les expériences de l'auteure elle-même par rapport aux circonstances de sa vie qu'elle ne réussissait pas à comprendre mais dont elle savait qu'elles n'étaient pas fortuites. Avec elle, vous pourrez voir comment elle a avancé sur un chemin que jamais elle n'aurait imaginé, entourée et conditionnée par les influences des schémas hérités de l'énergie ancestrale de son clan.

Un Ange à mon Portail: Poésie

by Miguel D'Addario

Ce petit chef d’œuvre, réunissant près de quatre-vingts poèmes, est à ce jour le livre le plus traduit de Miguel D’Addario. Écrit en espagnol à l’origine, il est désormais traduit en italien, anglais, portugais, grec et français. Nous sommes plongés dans un voyage intérieur à travers des thèmes universels comme l’amour, la vie, la mort, les obstacles, les bonheurs, Dieu, notre existence à travers notre recherche intérieure, notre réveil, notre évolution... Parfois l’auteur nous interpelle, nous secoue, souhaitant nous faire prendre conscience qu’il est temps de s’éveiller. L’aspect social est un thème de prédilection, car inconsciemment, nous sommes sous l’influence de la société. Mais sans le moindre questionnement, ne risquons-nous pas de passer à côté de l’essentiel ? L’adversité pourrait-elle être perçue de manière positive, comme une expérience nécessaire permettant le réveil puis l’évolution ? Les éléments perturbateurs apparaitraient alors comme des médiateurs entre le monde tangible et intangible. Et finalement l’amour apparait aussi comme une réponse, poème Limites : « (…) Embrasse comme si tu perdais ton corps demain et aime comme si c’était le dernier jour de ta vie. » Un recueil de poésie qui permet de faire face aux déboires de la vie de manière positive et de croître en se recentrant sur notre essentialité.

Uma questão de confiança

by Deb Stover

Gordon fechou a porta e caminhou cambaleando para a cama. Ele queria perdoar Taylor. Desesperadamente! Mas não podia confiar nela. Se se permitisse confiar, saberia que ela ficaria com o poder de o magoar novamente. Independentemente de tudo, ele não poderia mais dar-lhe esse poder. O chão rangeu logo após a porta de Gordon, e ele prendeu a respiração quando a maçaneta da porta se virou. O chão rangeu bem por trás da porta do quarto de Gordon e ele susteve a sua respiração à medida em que a maçaneta da porta ia rodando. O seu coração acelerou de tal forma e ele queria desesperadamente chamar por ela. A porta abriu devagarinho e Taylor apareceu como um vulto iluminado pela luz da lareira. "Meu Deus!" pensou ele. O seu olhar percorreu todo o seu corpo, saboreando cada centímetro de cada perna nua…O seu corpo brotou para a vida mesmo que a sua boca tenha começado a dizer as palavras: "Taylor, não..." "Tenho estado deitado e acordado e não consigo parar de me lembrar." Ela foi até à sua cama descalça. "Olha para mim, Gordon." disse Taylor. Ele abriu as pestanas e deparou-se com o seu olhar. Algo brilhante, caloroso e perigoso queimava dentro dos olhos dela. "Sabes..." disse. Ela colocou o seu joelho na cama e acarinhou-o, colocando a mão gentilmente na sua cara, depois colocou o outro joelho na sua cama e agarrou a cara dele com as suas mãos. "Apenas sei de uma coisa..." sussurrou, encostando cada vez mais a sua boca à dele.Gordon fechou a porta e caminhou cambaleando para a cama. Ele queria perdoar Taylor. Desesperadamente!

Uma namorada grávida

by Amaya Evans

Tempo presente: Cloe Holland é uma modelo de revistas que está feliz com seu estilo de vida, cheia de luxos e viagens. Ela sente falta apenas de uma coisa: um homem que a valorize e que queira ter algo sério com ela. Ela está cansada dos homens com cabeça vazia que a rodeiam. Todos preocupados com seu físico, mas sem sentimentos, nem conversas inteligentes. Certo dia, ela foi com algumas amigas a um bar e todas concordaram em ir a uma agência de casamentos para conhecer um homem que valesse a pena, pois todas estão na mesma, procurando um relacionamento amoroso que não durasse apenas um suspiro. Os meses se passaram e ela se esqueceu do assunto, até que um dia ela é procurada por uma agência de casamentos, no exato momento em que tinha acabado de terminar com seu namorado e descoberto que aquela relação tinha deixado consequências. 1886: Charles Doyle é o xerife do vilarejo. Um homem trabalhador, que não tem sorte com as mulheres. Seu tamanho e uma cicatriz feia no rosto, resultado de uma briga intensa com um bandido, faz com que as pessoas se sintam intimidadas e se afastem quando ele passa. Ele começou a desistir de encontrar uma boa mulher, que o aceitasse como ele é, e foi por isso que seus dois bons amigos, Mathias e Derek, o aconselharam a procurar uma esposa por correspondência. Após algum tempo, enquanto cavalga em direção ao vilarejo, escutou alguns gritos e correu para ajudar uma mulher que gritava como louca e ao vê-lo ela desmaiou. A mulher carregava uma carta direcionada a ele, onde diziam que aquela era a esposa que ele tinha pedido e não davam muitos detalhes. Ele, como todo cavalheiro, levou-a até sua casa, esperando não ter cometido um erro ao escrever para aquela agência, pois a mulher não se parecia em nada com o que ele queria em uma dama e, além disso, ele ainda não sabia o que estava por vir.

Uma espécie de mulher

by Verdiana Nobile

Londres. Um homem encontra uma mulher. Mas esta não é uma história de amor. Não uma daquelas tradicionais, pelo menos. Ela tem os cabelos cor-petróleo, é um pouco extravagante, tagarela, invasiva. Ele, um jovem e brilhante jornalista aprisionado em um trabalho pouco gratificante. Juntos, jogam-se na redescoberta da cidade deles, transformando cada encontro em uma pequena aventura, aprendendo a se conhecerem e fantasiando sobre o futuro. Mas, uma manhã, ela desaparece. Não tem um bilhete, uma explicação. Cada objeto ligado a ela parece ter evaporado magicamente. Reencontrá-la, para ele, torna-se uma obsessão que o levará a duvidar de si mesmo, a afrontar verdades incômodas, a reavaliar todas as suas escolhas, as relações com outros e a inteira concepção que sempre teve de si e do seu mundo. Quem realmente Leila é? O quanto é real?
