Heart Bones

by Colleen Hoover

Life and a dismal last name are the only two things Beyah Grim's parents ever gave her. After carving her path all on her own, Beyah is well on her way to bigger and better things, thanks to no one but herself. With only two short months separating her from the future she's built and the past she desperately wants to leave behind, an unexpected death leaves Beyah with no place to go during the interim. Forced to reach out to her last resort, Beyah has to spend the remainder of her summer on a peninsula in Texas with a father she barely knows. Beyah's plan is to keep her head down and let the summer slip by seamlessly, but her new neighbor Samson throws a wrench in that plan. Samson and Beyah have nothing in common on the surface. She comes from a life of poverty and neglect; he comes from a family of wealth and privilege. But one thing they do have in common is that they're both drawn to sad things. Which means they're drawn to each other. With an almost immediate connection too intense for them to continue denying, Beyah and Samson agree to stay in the shallow end of a summer fling. What Beyah doesn't realize is that a rip current is coming, and it's about to drag her heart out to sea. "This book deserves a whole galaxy of stars, but alas, five is all I can give." -Shades of Rebecca

Against Oneness Pentecostalism: An Exegetical-Theological Critique

by Michael Burgos

Oneness Pentecostalism constitutes one of the world's largest non-trinitarian expressions of Christianity. While many studies have been written to provide a critique of other heterodox Christian groups (e.g., Jehovah's Witnesses, the LDS Church), there is a general lack of careful scholarship examining the theological claims of Oneness Pentecostals. <p><p> Now revised, updated, and expanded, Against Oneness Pentecostalism (3rd Edition) is a thoroughly researched critique of Oneness Pentecostalism. With scholarly precision, Michael Burgos has provided an incisive evaluation of Oneness exegesis and theology while accurately representing the teachings of Oneness Pentecostals.

On Air: My 50-year Love Affair With Radio

by Stephen White Peter Casey Jordan Rich

In his book, ON AIR: My 50-Year Love Affair with Radio, Jordan Rich talks candidly about his experiences behind the microphone, from his college days to his years with WBZ. We meet those who mentored him as he touches on his love of theatre and music, the mercurial world of radio employment (and unemployment), the support and love of his family, and one key friendship as rock-solid as Mt. Rushmore. He talks about creating a small voice-over recording business, entertaining for years on the road, and valuable life lessons learned in and out of the studio. There is also a revealing look at what it’s been like to interview some of the biggest stars to come through Boston over the years. At times, the story becomes personal. Jordan shares insight into the demons that nearly derailed his career, as well as personal tragedies he was forced to overcome. But in the end, those challenges only helped to strengthen his love affair with radio that still exists today. He hopes this short memoir will offer a lesson or two and some inspiration for any up and coming broadcaster out there!

The challenge of scaling the highest mountain, exploring the deepest ocean, crossing the hottest desert, or swimming in near-freezing water is irresistible to many people. Life at the Extremes is an engrossing exploration of what happens to our bodies in these seemingly uninhabitable environments. Frances Ashcroft weaves stories of extraordinary feats of endurance with historical material and the latest scientific findings as she investigates the limits of human survival and the remarkable adaptations that enable us to withstand extreme conditions. What causes mountain sickness? How is it possible to reach the top of Everest without supplementary oxygen, when passengers in an airplane that depressurized at the same altitude would lose consciousness in seconds? Why do divers get the bends but sperm whales do not? How long you can survive immersion in freezing water? Why don't penguins get frostbite? Will men always be faster runners than women? How far into deep space can a body travel?

El ladrón de mapas: El saqueo a las bibliotecas de Uruguay, Argentina, España e Italia

by Andrés López Reilly

Una crónica real sobre un hecho que parece ficción: un ladrón uruguayo que robó mapas de inestimable valor, perteneciente a una organización especializada en el tráfico de obras de arte. Una trincheta escondida en un estuche de lentes, un falso carné de investigador y una cara de piedra fueron los artilugios para concretar un robo de mapas incunables -impresos entre 1453 y 1500- de inestimable valor. El monto del atropello en la Biblioteca Nacional de España en 2007 y el modo sin precedentes en que se concretó destaparon una red delictiva con ramificaciones en varios continentes y vinculación con la mafia que se extiende al día de hoy. ¿El ladrón? Un uruguayo que perpetró sus artes también en su tierra y, pese a todo, sigue descansando en un country bonaerense. La trama parece de novela, pero es tan real como vertiginosa, y la cuenta magistralmente el periodista Andrés López Reilly. La investigación, que le llevó años de labor, comenzó con la visita de un misterioso informante. De allí en más, el cronista persiguió las huellas del usurpador de mapas por el Río de la Plata, se encontró con que los cerebros de la organización habían desfilado por Montevideo incluso con acreditaciones del Vaticano, se topó con inescrupulosos libreros y falsos directores de museos, para comprobar finalmente la escasa protección de ese acervo tan rico y que en parte se perdió para siempre.

El cronista y la historia

by Julio María Sanguinetti

Este libro compila la trayectoria de Julio María Sanguinetti en su rol de periodista, durante más de sesenta años de trabajo. ¿Cómo se veía Cuba en 1959 cuando Fidel asumía personalmente el gobierno? ¿Y Checoslovaquia al borde de la invasión de 1968? ¿Y la Corea del Norte de Kim Il Sung, hoy considerado divinidad por su nieto?Julio María Sanguinetti, en su rol de periodista, estuvo en esos lugares, en aquel tiempo lejano, y escribió crónicas que hoy son historia. También lo son las que publicó en el momento mismo del golpe de Estado uruguayo, en 1973, que no vieron nunca la luz en Uruguay y que fueran publicadas en Argentina, México y también Brasil, donde sufrió la proscripción para escribir de asuntos políticos, tal como le ocurriría luego en nuestro país.En sesenta años de periodismo no ha cesado de mantener su mirada histórica, a través de artículos generalmente # de combate #, referidos al abuso de la memoria, la politización de la historia, la leyenda del # Estado tapón #, la denigración de Rivera, los equívocos en nuestra celebración de la independencia, la laicidad republicana y otros temas que no son pasado congelado sino historia viva.Como dice Marc Bloch, fundador de la historiografía moderna, # la incomprensión del presente nace fatalmente de la ignorancia del pasado #.
