Gosnell: The Untold Story of America's Most Prolific Serial Killer

by Phelim Mcaleer Ann Mcelhinney

He is America’s most prolific serial killer. And yet Kermit Gosnell was no obvious criminal. The abortion doctor was a pillar of his community, an advocate for women’s “reproductive health,” and a respected member of Philadelphia’s professional elite. His Women’s Medical Society Clinic looked like admirable community outreach by a brave doctor committed to upholding women’s rights. Meanwhile, inside the filthy building, Gosnell was casually murdering born-alive infants, butchering women, and making a macabre collection of severed babies’ feet. His accomplices in crime were a staff of dropouts, drug addicts, and unlicensed medical professionals posing as doctors. But even more important to his decades-long crime spree were his enablers in the outside world—from the state bureaucrats who had copious evidence that Gosnell was breaking the law but did nothing to the politicians whose fervent support for abortion rights kept health inspectors away. The “pro-choice” political, bureaucratic, and media establishment smiled on Gosnell—and gave him carte blanche to kill. Even law enforcement seemed to not care. Philadelphia Police Homicide Unit received a complaint about Gosnell years before he was caught, gave it a cursory look, and ignored the evidence. Two women and hundreds of babies died after they closed the case. Luckily, Detective Jim Wood—a narcotics detective—opened a drug case against Gosnell. What he found when he served his warrant left even the most grizzled members of the police force stunned. Now Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer, the veteran investigative journalists and filmmakers behind FrackNation, dig into Gosnell’s crimes. A record-breaking crowdfunding campaign financed their Gosnell movie starring young Superman Dean Cain, but in the research for the film, McElhinney and McAleer uncovered fascinating and previously unreported revelations that couldn’t be included in the film. Gosnell: The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer contains the full results of their investigation.

His most-recent ex-lover said "sayonara" and headed for Japan despite a week of Hindy begging him to stay. The man before that bid Hindy "namaste" before heading for Nepal seeking salvation. Hindy will accept advice from anywhere, even a tacky Cupid music box which only plays Cher's "Believe," and vivid dreams that compel him to leave NYC and head for the Adirondacks. Cupid leads Hindy straight to a leather bar in the mountains and an exotic drag queen named Patrice O'Malley. For Patrice, whose near-perfect beauty belies his lack of confidence, it's lust at first sight, but Hindy has doubts born of his recent run of bad luck in romance. But when Patrice saves Hindy from death by a falling chunk of airplane blue ice, Cupid slams into Hindy's heart, and Hindy begins to believe in miracles again. Dangers and challenges arise, involving, among other things, crazy ex-lovers, rampaging mosquitoes, and a phantom moose. But life together awaits back in NYC, if they can survive, trust in each other, and believe in life after love.

Gospel Truth

by John Dominic Crossan Russell Shorto

Russell Shorto delves into one of the most controversial and age-old questions: Who was Jesus Christ?For roughly two thousand years, the world has known only the Biblical depiction of Jesus: the virgin birth, miraculous life, and resurrection. Recently, scholars have pursued the historical Jesus Christ by poring through texts, examining ancient documents, and even holding votes. They make a fresh attempt to answer some of history's greatest questions: Who was he? Where did he live? What did he think? And was the Bible's account true?In Gospel Truth, bestselling author Russell Shorto brings a journalist's eye to the life of Jesus Christ. Shorto looks into the Jesus Seminar, where historians seek and analyze evidence of the world's most famous carpenter's son. He compiles their research and ideas to create a composite biographical portrait of Yeshu, a man of ordinary beginnings who changed the world in extraordinary ways. The result will fascinate believers and non-believers alike.

Governing Nonprofit Organizations: Federal and State Law and Regulation

by Marion R. Fremont-Smith

The nonprofit sector is a vital component of our society and is allowed the greatest freedom to operate. The public understandably assumes that since nonprofit organizations are established to do good, the people who run nonprofits are altruistic, and the laws governing nonprofits have reflected this assumption. But as Marion Fremont-Smith argues, the rules that govern how nonprofits operate are inadequate, and the regulatory mechanisms designed to enforce the rules need improvement. Despite repeated instances of negligent management, self-interest at the expense of the charity, and outright fraud, nonprofits continue to receive minimal government regulation. In this time of increased demand for corporate accountability, the need to strengthen regulation of nonprofits is obvious. Fremont-Smith addresses this need from a historical, legal, and organizational perspective. She combines summaries and analysis of the substantive legal rules governing the behavior of charitable officers, directors, and trustees with descriptions of the federal and state regulatory schemes designed to enforce these rules. Her unique and exhaustive historical survey of the law of nonprofit organizations provides a foundation for her analysis of the effectiveness of current law and proposals for its improvement.

Grab Bag

by Charlotte Macleod

Seventeen priceless stories from the author often referred to as "America's Agatha Christie"Charlotte MacLeod's heroes were men and women like Peter Shandy and Sarah Kelling--genteel sleuths who fight crime with brains, not brawn--and her settings were the drawing rooms and servants' quarters of New England and beyond. With a keen wit and a strong eye for detail, she crafted some of the most memorable victims, murderers, and innocent bystanders of twentieth-century detective novels. In this volume, she proves herself a master of the short story as well. Here is the original Peter Shandy story, featuring the school that would eventually metamorphose into Balaclava Agricultural College. Here is peculiar Cousin Claude, who strangles himself with his own necktie. And here is the tale that answers the question "What does Max Bittersohn do when his wife is not around?" Whether the characters are familiar or not, the style is irresistible, and the mysteries are as delightfully puzzling as ever.

Grace and Grit

by Lilly Ledbetter

The courageous story of the woman at the center of the historic discrimination case that inspired the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act--her fight for equal rights in the workplace, and how her determination became a victory for the nation. Lilly Ledbetter was born in a house with no running water or electricity in the small town of Possum Trot, Alabama. She knew that she was destined for something more, and in 1979, Lilly applied for her dream job at the Goodyear tire factory. Even though the only women she'd seen there were secretaries in the front offices where she'd submitted her application, she got the job--one of the first women hired at the management level. Though she faced daily discrimination and sexual harassment, Lilly pressed onward, believing that eventually things would change. Until, nineteen years later, Lilly received an anonymous note revealing that she was making thousands less per year than the men in her position. Devastated, she filed a sex discrimination case against Goodyear, which she won--and then heartbreakingly lost on appeal. Over the next eight years, her case made it all the way to the Supreme Court, where she lost again: the court ruled that she should have filed suit within 180 days of her first unequal paycheck--despite the fact that she had no way of knowing that she was being paid unfairly all those years. In a dramatic moment, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg read her dissent from the bench, urging Lilly to fight back. And fight Lilly did, becoming the namesake of President Barack Obama's first official piece of legislation. Today, she is a tireless advocate for change, traveling the country to urge women and minorities to claim their civil rights. Both a deeply inspiring memoir and a powerful call to arms, Grace and Grit is the story of a true American icon.

El gran dolor del mundo: Diarios (1944-1975)

by Francisco Candel

El gran dolor del mundo reúne una amplia selección de los diarios inéditos de Francisco Candel, quien llevó constancia de su día a día desde 1944 hasta pocas semanas antes de morir, en 2007. En la cubierta del primer volumen de sus diarios, Francisco Candel escribió: «Quien quiera que seas, si por casualidad tropiezas con este cuaderno, no cometas la indiscreción de leerlo». Sin embargo, con el tiempo cobró conciencia de su interés como testimonio incalculable de una época y de sí mismo. Candel fue un hombre de frontera, entre el precario mundo que le vio nacer, al que sería fiel en su obra toda la vida, y el mundo letrado catalán, al que se incorporaría contando solo con su intensa vocación por la literatura. Este volumen se cierra con la muerte de Franco, un hecho que se convertiría en una obsesión para él, pues significaba el fin del autoritarismo político. A lo largo de su obra, Candel recorrió ampliamente su propia biografía, pero los diarios, escritos con una minuciosidad conmovedora, ponen de manifiesto la coherencia entre vida y obra; la creencia en la responsabilidad universal a la manera en que la sintieron los escritores rusos: cada uno de nosotros es responsable ante los demás por todo lo que ocurre. Tal pensamiento le condujo a una estética de un realismo radical, donde solo tenía cabida la verdad de lo observado por él. Los diarios recogen la épica cotidiana de la gente que sufre, a la que acecha la miseria y a la que Candel dota de una particular elevación moral. El gran dolor del mundo también da cuenta de sus preocupaciones, de su lucha por ser un escritor, más allá de la precariedad de sus orígenes, sus problemas con la censura, sus angustias metafísicas, la vida cotidiana bajo el franquismo o la difícil felicidad conyugal.

On September 1, 2011, TJ Klune wrote, "...it&apos;s not about the ending, it&apos;s about the journey..." in a review of Eric Arvin&apos;s Woke Up in a Strange Place. With those words, two men began a journey of love and invited us to ride along. TJ and Eric have shared so much with us: their wonderful books, their smiles, their humor, their lives, and their inspiring devotion to each other. In December of 2013, their journey took a detour when Eric was taken to the emergency room. He survived the surgery to remove a cavernous hemangioma from his brain stem, but the challenges TJ and Eric face are far from over. The authors in this anthology donated their talent as a way to support Eric&apos;s continued recovery, to help bring strength to TJ, and to show both of them just how much love surrounds them. Grand Adventures is a diverse range of stories about the journey of love. We're going on some grand adventures for a great cause. Thank you for joining us.Foreword by S.A.
