The only man that Melany Starks ever loved was dying-quickly he was disintegrating before her eyes. Why did she care? He ignored her and watched from among the shadows while she crumbled under the stress and strain of loving only him. He stood by as a spectator while she held on with dear life to what was left of their family long after he walked out in a dramatic and twisted turn of events. It was neither he nor his love that saved her; though it was he and his deceit that pushed her to rock-bottom. Jalen and Melany Starks lived a fairytale life, in the eyes of many. Alas, secrets lurked behind the doors of their mansion, and sick skeletons lived in the closets of his unlikely partners in infidelity. As each part of Jalen's front falls to pieces, so does Melany's life and her ability to cope. Nevertheless, the darkest part of the night is just before the break of day. Only after seeking God does she manage to renew her life and the lives of every one affected by the life and death of Jalen Starks.

Everest. If they can make it there, they can make it anywhere. Maybe even New York, where Ruthie Knox takes her charming rom-com style to new heights. Beneath her whole “classic English beauty” appearance is an indomitable spirit that has turned Rosemary Chamberlain into something of a celebrity mountain climber. But after an Everest excursion takes a deadly turn, Rosemary is rescued by her quick-thinking guide, New York native Kal Beckett. Rosemary’s brush with death brings out a primal need to celebrate life—and inspires a night of steamy sex with the rather gorgeous man who saved her. The son of a famous female climber with a scandalous past, Kal Beckett is still trying to find himself. In the Zen state of mind where Kal spends most of his time, anything can happen—like making love to a fascinating stranger and setting off across the world with her the next morning. But as their lives collide in the whirlwind of passion that is New York City, the real adventure is clearly just beginning. . . .

Genre: Mathematics

A real matrix is positive semidefinite if it can be decomposed as A=BB′. In some applications the matrix B has to be elementwise nonnegative. If such a matrix exists, A is called completely positive. The smallest number of columns of a nonnegative matrix B such that A=BB′ is known as the cp-rank of A. This invaluable book focuses on necessary conditions and sufficient conditions for complete positivity, as well as bounds for the cp-rank. The methods are combinatorial, geometric and algebraic. The required background on nonnegative matrices, cones, graphs and Schur complements is outlined.

This book, written primarily as a training guide for law enforcement personnel, demonstrates how easily police officers can get sucked in by professional con artists. Secondly, the book was written to alert potential victims of the lack of police protection.

It was evident these openly brazen career criminals, who primarily target children these days, account for several million dollars annually in Michigan alone, while they proclaim that their good-natured fraud and gambling enterprises are not crimes at all, but merely "games of skill."

Genre: Fiction

A GoodReads Reader's Choice Bridget Jones—one of the most beloved characters in modern literature (v.g.)—is back! In Helen Fielding's wildly funny, hotly anticipated new novel, Bridget faces a few rather pressing questions: What do you do when your girlfriend’s sixtieth birthday party is the same day as your boyfriend’s thirtieth? Is it better to die of Botox or die of loneliness because you’re so wrinkly? Is it wrong to lie about your age when online dating? Is it morally wrong to have a blow-dry when one of your children has head lice? Is it normal to be too vain to put on your reading glasses when checking your toy boy for head lice? Does the Dalai Lama actually tweet or is it his assistant? Is it normal to get fewer followers the more you tweet? Is technology now the fifth element? Or is that wood? If you put lip plumper on your hands do you get plump hands? Is sleeping with someone after two dates and six weeks of texting the same as getting married after two meetings and six months of letter writing in Jane Austen’s day? Pondering these and other modern dilemmas, Bridget Jones stumbles through the challenges of loss, single motherhood, tweeting, texting, technology, and rediscovering her sexuality in—Warning! Bad, outdated phrase approaching!—middle age. In a triumphant return after fourteen years of silence, Bridget Jones: Mad About the Boy is timely, tender, touching, page-turning, witty, wise, outrageous, and bloody hilarious.

The Pietist Impulse in Christianity

Author: Christian T. Collins Winn
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
ISBN: 9781621890621
Release Date: 2011-07-01
Genre: Religion

From intellectual inquiry to spiritual practice to social reform, Pietism has exerted an enormous influence on various forms of Christianity and on Western culture more generally. However, this contribution remains largely unacknowledged or misunderstood in Anglo-American contexts because negative stereotypes--some undeserved, others deserved--tend to cast Pietism as a quietistic and sectarian form of religion interested in a narrow set of individualistic and spiritual concerns. In this volume, scholars from a variety of disciplines offer a corrective to this misunderstanding, highlighting the profound theological, cultural, and spiritual contribution of Pietism and what they term the pietist impulse. The essays in this volume demonstrate that Pietism was a movement of great depth and originality that was not merely concerned with the pious soul and its God. Rather, Pietists were from the beginning concerned with issues of social and ecclesial reform, the nature of history and historical inquiry, the shape and purpose of theology and theological education, the missional task of the church, and social justice and political engagement. In addition, the essays collected here fruitfully raise the question of the ongoing relevance of Pietism and the pietist impulse for contemporary problems and questions across disciplines and in the church at large.

Looking for Learning

Release Date: 2007-01
Genre: Education

Neuroscience is one field of the natural sciences that has produced millions of items of experimental data. It has provided a lot of knowledge about the basic physical and chemical processes in and between nerve cells. However, neuroscience has provided little understanding of the functional principles that make our brain what it is: an organ with a huge memory, which finds relationships between the contents of memory, which is able to learn functions, even for those for which it was not constructed, e.g. reading. This book deals with the diagnosis of deficits and the effects training (i.e. repetition of specified tasks) in the domain of auditory and visual perception as well as in the control of eye movements. Not only are the diagnostic aspects covered but also the therapeutic possibilities are described insofar as they are already established and evaluated. It will also be shown that successful training of functional deficits transfers to learning at school.

In the days following 9/11 Europe was placid on the surface, but underneath, it was tense and preparing to deal with an expanding network of terrorists already in place and planning to strike. France had the best preparations in place, having been tested constantly by terrorist organizations aligned with Muslim radicals associated with a myriad of causes dating back to the late 1950s, when its colonial empire in northern Africa began to give way. The attacks on New York City and Washington, DC were just the beginning. In Paris, two Pakistani agents were activated and tasked to assassinate the First Lady of France and the U.S. Ambassador. Tony Chase, a New York attorney and investment banker, who through happenstance escaped being in the North Tower of the World Trade Center on the morning of 9/11, was traveling through Paris on business, when a personal excursion to Bordeaux placed him close to the center of this sinister plot. This thriller takes you through sectors of Paris not frequented by tourists, ventures through its vast and efficient Metro system, travels to Bordeaux on the TGV France's high-speed train, and wanders through this beautiful city and the surrounding wine producing areas as a team of terrorists works to outwit the French internal security apparatus.
