Maxed Out: Hard Times, Easy Credit:ePub edition James D. Scurlock
When Pueblo Indians say, ?The first white man our people saw was a black man,? they are referring to Esteban, who came to New Mexico in 1539. After centuries of negative portrayals, this book highlights Esteban?s importance in America?s early history.Books about the history of the American West have ignored Esteban or belittled his importance, often using his slave nickname, Estebanico. What little we know about Esteban comes from Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca and other Spanish chroniclers, whose condescension toward the African slave has carried over into most history books. In this work Herrick dispels the myths and outright lies about Esteban. His biography emphasizes Esteban rather than the Spaniards whose exploits are often exaggerated and jingoistic in the sixteenth-century chronicles. He gives Esteban full credit for his courage and his skill as a linguist and cultural intermediary who was trusted and respected by Indians from many tribes across the continent.
Emma, by Jane Austen, is a novel about youthful hubris and the perils of misconstrued romance. As in her other novels, Austen explores the concerns and difficulties of genteel women living in Georgian-Regency England; she also creates a lively comedy of manners among her characters. Before she began the novel, Austen wrote, ´´I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like.´´ In the very first sentence she introduces the title character as ´´Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich.´´ Emma, however, is also rather spoiled, headstrong, and self-satisfied; she greatly overestimates her own matchmaking abilities; she is blind to the dangers of meddling in other people´s lives; and her imagination and perceptions often lead her astray. Emma Woodhouse, aged 20 at the start of the novel, is a young, beautiful, witty, and privileged woman in Regency England. She lives on the fictional estate of Hartfield in Surrey in the village of Highbury with her elderly widowed father, a valetudinarian who is excessively concerned for the health and safety of his loved ones. Emma´s friend and only critic is the gentlemanly George Knightley, her neighbor from the adjacent estate of Donwell, and the brother of her elder sister Isabella´s husband, John. As the novel opens, Emma has just attended the wedding of Miss Taylor, her best friend and former governess. Having introduced Miss Taylor to her future husband, Mr. Weston, Emma takes credit for their marriage, and decides that she rather likes matchmaking.
In diesem Buch kommen Szenen und Dialoge vor, die nie für die Öffentlichkeit gedacht waren, über die sich aber eine öffentliche Diskussion lohnt. In jeder Sonntagsrede wird die Bildung zum wichtigsten deutschen Rohstoff erklärt ? doch in den Hörsälen und Seminarräumen sieht die Welt ganz anders aus: Debattierunlust, Stromlinienförmigkeit, permanenter Performancezwang und der Wunsch der Studenten nach eindeutigen Antworten prägen das Bild. Feedback und Vorgaben kommen gut an, Diskurse hingegen stehen im Verdacht, irgendetwas Rückständiges zu sein. Zwischen Studenten, Dozenten und Professoren herrscht eine Art Gleichgewicht des Schreckens: Wenn meine Fehler im Raum bleiben, verlassen auch deine nicht den Raum. Provokant und mitreißend wirft Christiane Florin einen Blick hinter die Kulissen des Uni-Alltags und beschreibt, was zwischen Credit Points und PowerPoint-Präsentation im Argen liegt ? und warum uns das nicht egal sein kann.
The story of an engineering marvel of the twenty-first century, from Britain´s bestselling railway writer. In autumn 2019, Europe´s biggest infrastructure project ? a state-of-the-art cross-London railway ? will finally come to fruition. From Reading and Heathrow in the west, the Elizabeth line will extend to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east, including 42 kilometres of new tunnels dug under central London. Crossrail, first conceived just after the Second World War in the era of Attlee and Churchill, has cost more than £15bn and is expected to serve 200 million passengers annually. The author sets out the complex and highly political reasons for Crossrail´s lengthy gestation, tracing the troubled progress of the concept from the rejection of the first Crossrail bill in the 1990s through the tortuous parliamentary processes that led to the passing of the Crossrail Act of 2008. He also recounts in detail the construction of this astonishing new railway, describing how immense tunnel boring machines cut through a subterranean world of rock and mud with unparalleled accuracy that ensured none of the buildings overhead were affected. A shrewdly incisive observer of postwar transport policy, Wolmar pays due credit to the remarkable achievement of Crossrail, while analysing in clear-eyed fashion the many setbacks it encountered en route to completion.
At age 90 Jack Smiley wasn´t thrilled with the community in which he retired, so he built his own. Today it provides him with a net income of $40,000 each month. Famously, KFC´s 65-year-old Kentucky Colonel Harlan Sanders supplemented a paltry Social Security check by franchising his unique recipe for fried poultry. Past 50, McDonald´s Ray Kroc made a similar trek in multiplying by many thousands a few popular, golden-arched hamburger stands from San Bernardino, California. Contrary to popular mythology, entrepreneurship is not spearheaded mostly by baby-faced, technology-savvy postadolescents whose brands include Facebook and Apple. According to a recent study, fully 80 percent of all businesses are started up by people over 35. Amy Groth of Business Insider cites these reasons that fortune favors the old: First, older entrepreneurs have more life and work experience. In some cases they have decades of industry expertise - and a better understanding of what it truly takes to compete and succeed,in the business world. Second, they also have much broader and vaster networks. Even if older entrepreneurs are seeking to start businesses in entirely different industries, they have deep connections from all walks of life - for example, a brother-in-law could be the perfect COO. Third, those over 50 have acquired more wealth and better credit histories (which helps with securing loans) and are smarter with their finances. In this book from best-selling author Gary Goodman you´ll discover: Supporters are everywhere: Your age cohort is the wealthiest! Now is the time to cash in your wisdom. Overcoming false beliefs and self-sabotage: why the only person holding you back is you. The Giraffe Syndrome: why the first step is the scariest. Busting age myths: ´´Nobody will work with me at my age!´´, ´´My best years are behind me´´, ´´It takes money to make money´´, and more.
Fantasized about quitting the 9-5? Walking away from credit card debt and student loans? Think living in the South Pacific for two years sounds like a perfect solution and perhaps even a winning idea for your first novel? Maarten Troost does just that, setting up as a devil-may-care islander while his girlfriend, Sylvia, gets to work on saving the planet, or at least a little part of it on an end-of-the-world atoll, Tarawa. Life on Tarawa resembles not so much paradise as a theatre of the absurd where planes fly with the aid of masking tape, Coconut Stalinism prevails as national government and Sylvia is co-opted by the CIA to spy on the Chinese. But abandoning continental hang-ups like barbequeing the local dogs and watching on as international industrial fishing trawlers plunder the world´s richest tuna supply aren´t so easy. Perhaps only by following the locals and letting go, one just might find a better way to live...
