Chase Payne is a walking contradiction. He's the most powerful psychic in the Community, but the least respected. He's the son of the Community's founder, but with his tattoo sleeves and abrasive attitude, he's nothing like his charismatic family. No one knows what to make of him, which is how he wound up locked in a cell on the Farm yet again. But this time, the only man he's ever loved is there too. Elijah Estrella was used to being the sassy sidekick who fooled around with Chase for fun. But that was before he realized the Community wasn't the haven he'd believed in and Chase was the only person who'd ever truly tried to protect him. Now they're surrounded by people who want to turn them against their friends, and the only way out is to pretend the brainwashing works. With Chase playing the role of a tyrant's second-in-command, and Elijah acting like Chase's mindless sex toy, they risk everything by plotting a daring escape. In the end, it's only their psychic abilities, fueled by their growing love for each other, that will allow them to take the Community down once and for all.

Three Keys to Affordable Communities

Award-winning author and leading green thinker Alan Durning takes a hard look at the pinch of expensive urban housing and sees what many others have missed. Hidden in city regulations is a set of simple but powerful barriers to housing for all. These rules criminalize history’s answers to affordable dwellings: the rooming house, the roommate, the in-law apartment, and the backyard cottage. In effect, cities have banned what used to be the bottom end of the private housing market. They’ve made urban quarters expensive and scarce. In Unlocking Home: Three Keys to Affordable Communities, Durning details how to revive inexpensive housing in walkable neighborhoods—at no cost to the public—by striking a few lines from municipal law books.

Zwei Frauen im Rachefieber ... Die junge Comedian Dana Diaz begegnet nach einem missglückten Auftritt der IT-Spezialistin Amanda.

Lange haben sie dies einfach erduldet, jetzt wollen sie selbst für Gerechtigkeit sorgen. Sie schließen einen Pakt: Jede soll sich an den Gewalttätern der anderen rächen. Nach kurzer Zeit übertrumpfen sich die beiden Frauen in ihren Rachespielen, geraten in eine Spirale aus Gewalt, Betrug und Täuschung. Bis sich Dana irgendwann fragt, ob sie ihrer neuen Freundin eigentlich wirklich blind vertrauen kann. Und was, wenn nicht? Wäre es dann für einen Absprung aus dem teuflischen Spiel nicht schon viel zu spät...?

Der ganz normale Wahnsinn Wer behaupten wollte, David Sedaris schreibe und veröffentliche Tagebücher, um seinen Lebensunterhalt zu verdienen, müsste Michelangelo einen Anstreicher nennen. Niemand versteht es besser als Sedaris, Erlebtes in Lesbares zu verwandeln – seit seinem Debüt mit »Nackt« lässt er seine weltumspannende Fangemeinde daran teilhaben, wie er die schmerzlichste Erinnerung in subtile Komik und die banalste Begebenheit in zeitlose Weisheit kleidet. Er ist sein eigener Inquisitor und Hofnarr zugleich – „der herausragende Vertreter des Mein-Leben-als-David-Sedaris-Genres“ (BRIGITTE). In seinem neuesten Band mit absurden Alltagsgeschichten entführt uns Sedaris unter anderem in den australischen Busch, wo allerlei Getier verborgene Ängste und längst verdrängte Erfahrungen in ihm aufleben lässt; er erzählt von einer durchzechten Nacht mit wildfremden Alkoholikern im Zug von Chicago nach New York, weiht uns ein in die Geheimnisse der französischen Kieferchirurgie und in die Abgründe des britischen Handwerkertums, verrät uns und seinem präpotenten Patenkind, wie Tagebuchschreiben funktioniert und wozu es gut ist, und lehrt uns, Eulen zu verstehen. Es gibt kaum ein besseres Mittel gegen schlechte Laune als die Komik von David Sedaris – in 26 Geschichten und einem Gedicht macht er voller Scharfsinn aus den kleinen und großen Dramen des Lebens einen guten Witz.

Nature Pictorialized

"the View" in Landscape History

Author: Gina Crandell

Publisher: N.A


Category: Architecture

Page: 196

"For centuries landscape designers have been influenced - often unknowingly - by the conventions of painting and poetry. In Nature Pictorialized, Gina Crandell offers an introduction to the basic concepts of art and literary history as they relate to the discipline of landscape architecture." "Beginning with the earliest known encounters between artist and landscape, Crandell traces the process of pictorializing nature through the art of ancient Greece, Rome, the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance. She devotes special attention to seventeenth-century European landscape painting, which provides the model for the eighteenth-century landscape garden. She shows how the "naturalistic" images of these art forms surpassed the mere imitation of the seen world, transforming it instead into a pastoral ideal in which nature is green, attractive, and yielding." "By the late nineteenth century, painters had largely abandoned naturalistic portrayal. But the pictorial conception of nature persists to the present day, Crandell contends, in part because the landscape itself has become the repository of pictorial conventions, and landscape architecture the perpetuator of the painter's vision. Nature Pictorialized is the first book to stress the importance of art and literature as forces that have helped shape landscape architecture."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
