""Moral Divorce" and Other Stories is a collection of short stories by Jacinto Octavio Picon y Bouchet (1852-1923), a member of Spain's Generation of 1868. A bibliophile and a Francophile (his mother was French); a native of Madrid who loved Paris; a member of the Royal Spanish Academy (of the Spanish language) and the San Fernando Royal Academy of Fine Arts (he published a volume of art criticism entitled the Life and Works of Don Diego Velazquez); a novelist, short story writer, and journalist; a liberal (in politics, religion, social philosophy); a Spaniard steeped in his own literature (from Cervantes to Galdos) but knowledgeable about others; an aesthete whose appreciation of French cooking prompted Emilia Pardo Bazan (probably tongue in cheek) to provide a recipe for a "Jacinto Octavio Omelette" in her Modern Spanish Cuisine; a friend of literary greats of his time (Clarin, Galdos, Palacio Valdes, Pardo Bazan, Valera, etc.); and a loving father whose son's premature death at the age of forty nearly drove him to despair, Picon deserves to be read anew, for in his stories he deals with timeless and universal themes - freedom, justice, equality, compassion, suffering, love, and hope."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Ständige Ablenkung ist heute das Hindernis Nummer eins für ein effizienteres Arbeiten. Sei es aufgrund lauter Großraumbüros, vieler paralleler Kommunikationskanäle, dauerhaftem Online-Sein oder der Schwierigkeit zu entscheiden, was davon nun unsere Aufmerksamkeit am meisten benötigt. Sich ganz auf eine Sache konzentrieren zu können wird damit zu einer raren, aber wertvollen und entscheidenden Fähigkeit im Arbeitsalltag. Cal Newport prägte hierfür den Begriff "Deep Work", der einen Zustand völlig konzentrierter und fokussierter Arbeit beschreibt, und begann die Regeln und Denkweisen zu erforschen, die solch fokussiertes Arbeiten fördern. Mit seiner Deep-Work-Methode verrät Newport, wie man sich systematisch darauf trainiert, zu fokussieren, und wie wir unser Arbeitsleben nach den Regeln der Deep-Work-Methode neu organisieren können. Wer in unserer schnelllebigen und sprunghaften Zeit nicht untergehen will, für den ist dieses Konzept unerlässlich. Kurz gesagt: Die Entscheidung für Deep Work ist eine der besten, die man in einer Welt voller Ablenkungen treffen kann.

The Taxi Dance Hall

Author: Paul Goalby Cressey
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
ISBN: 0226120546
Release Date: 2008-09-15
Genre: Social Science

First published in 1932, The Taxi-Dance Hall is Paul Goalby Cressey’s fascinating study of Chicago’s urban nightlife—as seen through the eyes of the patrons, owners, and dancers-for-hire who frequented the city’s notoriously seedy “taxi-dance” halls. Taxi-dance halls, as the introduction notes, were social centers where men could come and pay to dance with “a bevy of pretty, vivacious, and often mercenary” women. Ten cents per dance was the usual fee, with half the proceeds going to the dancer and the other half to the owner of the taxi-hall. Cressey’s study includes detailed maps of the taxi-dance districts, illuminating interviews with dancers, patrons, and owners, and vivid analyses of local attempts to reform the taxi-dance hall and its attendees. Cressey’s study reveals these halls to be the distinctive urban consequence of tensions between a young, diverse, and economically independent population at odds with the restrictive regulations of Prohibition America. Thick with sexual vice, ethnic clashes, and powerful undercurrents of class, The Taxi-Dance Hall is a landmark example of Chicago sociology, perfect for scholars and history buffs alike.

Divine Correction for Distraction Volume 1

Author: Given O. Blakely
Publisher: Xlibris Corporation
ISBN: 1450002447
Release Date: 2010-01-26
Genre: Religion

This is volume one of the book "Divine Correction for Distraction." Owing to the fact that this is a commentary on the book of Colossians, we recommend the books (volumes one and two) be purchased as a set. For the Christian, this is the day of distraction. Many voices are calling out for our allegiance. For those en route to heaven, this circumstance is most dangerous, for dwelling in the house of the Lord requires a singular and consistent focus. This book is an exposition of the remedial effects of proper focus. It is a commentary on the Biblical book of Colossians. The particular church to whom this letter is directed was experiencing distracting influences. The spiritual rationale of maintaining a proper focus is declared with great power. It is also an expose of the erroneous "how-to" approach to "the Christian life" that is being hawked by religious opportunists. For the believer, a completeness is found in Christ that cannot be augmented. There is no such thing as something that assists in the improvement of spiritual life that is not directly related to Christ, being revealed in the Scriptutres -- particularly by means of apostolic doctrine. This book is dedicated by my dear wife, June Ellen. As of 2009, we have been married for twenty-nine pleasant and profitable years. After I was widowed in 1979, I doubted that I would ever enjoy the benefits of marriage again. This was compounded by the loneliness that attends being widowed after twenty-five years. I asked the Lord for mercy to live above my own circumstances, never realizing how marvelously He would answer my prayer. Through His loving providence, He crossed my path with a fine Christian lady, and we soon were married. Sister June is an excellent wife and mother, bearing four children to us: Adah Lael, Jonathan David and Benjamin Seth (twins), and Eva Christine. From 1993 through their graduation from high school, she homeschooled them in a most excellent way. While they were young, she also fulfilled the role of a nurse, as one of our twin sons, Benjamin, had brain cancer. At the age of nine, a massive tumor (4" x 5") was removed from the front left lobe of his brain. At that time, there was no medical guarantee of his continuance in the body. June was trained to care for him, and she nursed him through a very critical period, administering medication, taking blood samples, and a host of other things associated with the kind of care Benjamin required. Today, 2009, he is a fine young man and is cancer free. From the practical point of view, this is largely owing to the faithful care of his mother. In addition to the key role she plays in our home, Sister June is also an excellent minister of the Word of God. She teaches frequently in our various assemblies and is an indispensable companion in the good fight of faith as we journey together to the glory. She has an extraordinary grasp of the truth and has been gifted by the Lord to effectively communicate what she has been given to comprehend. She is also the proofreader of most of my writing and is a most profitable minister to my own spirit. Because of my love and respect for her, owing to her indispensable contribution to my own faith, and in gratefulness to our great God, I dedicate this volume to her.
