Within the Frame is a book about finding and expressing your photographic vision, specifically where people, places, and cultures are concerned. A personal book full of real-world wisdom and incredible images, author David duChemin (of pixelatedimage.com) shows you both the how and the why of finding, chasing, and expressing your vision with a camera to your eye. Vision leads to passion, and passion is a cornerstone of great photography. With it, photographs draw the eye in and create an emotional experience. Without it, a photograph is often not worth—and can’t capture—a viewer’s attention. Both instructional and inspirational, Within the Frame helps you on your photographic journey to make better images of the places and people you love, whether they are around the world or in your own backyard. duChemin covers how to tell stories, and the technology and tools we have at our disposal in order to tell those narratives. Most importantly, he stresses the crucial theme of vision when it comes to photographing people, places, and cultures—and he helps you cultivate and find your own vision, and then fit it within the frame.

Storytelling in African-American Studies

The book explores the written representation of African-American oral storytelling from Charles Chesnutt, Zora Neale Hurston and Ralph Ellison to James Alan McPherson, Toni Cade Bambara and John Edgar Wideman. At its core, the book compares the relationship of the "frame tale"-an inside-the-text storyteller telling a tale to an inside-the-text listener-with the relationship between the outside-the-text writer and reader. The progression is from Chesnutt's 1899 frame texts, in which the black spoken voice is contained by a white narrator/listener, to Bambara's sixties-era example of a "frameless" spoken voice text, to Wideman's neo-frame text of the late 20th century.

It comes in the mail-a beautiful invitation that promises humiliation and horror. Unless Maggie Smiley, former child celebrity and now overweight recluse, gets her courage and motivation in check, along with her health. The phone call offering fitness expert Lance Denton a chance to work with Maggie Smiley promises retribution. He messed up a lot as a punk kid on the too-fast road to stardom, and how he treated his co-star never left him. It is that-and a long list of secrets she doesn't need to know-that has him show up at Maggie's doorstep.

They are viewed in a more timely fashion. The Internet presents the map user with both a faster method of map distribution and different forms of mapping. This book provides an international perspective on this growing area of information dissemination.

Ever since the first generation of man, whereby our first patriarch, Adam, and matriarch, Eve, were commanded by God on what to do if they were to live and enjoy a happy life of perpetual peace and prosperity (Genesis 2: 1617) right up to our own generation today (2014), numerous prophets, prophetesses, philosophers, statesmen, scientists, and jurists alike have also arisen echoing the same. These include, for example, Hosea, Isaiah, Micah, Samuel, Jeremiah,etc. (prophets); Miriam, Deborah, Anna, etc. (prophetesses); Confucious, Socrates, Zeno, Thomas Hobbes, Jeremy Bentham, John Stuart Mill, John Locke, etc. (philosophers); Ur-Num, Hammurabi, Marcus Tullis Cicero, Woodrow Wilson, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Marcus Garvey, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Kwame Nkrumah, Patrice Lumumba, Nelson Madiba Mandela, etc. (statesmen); Hugo Grotius, L. Oppenheim, H. Lauterpacht, Hans Kelsen, Louis B. Sohn, etc (jurists); Albert Einstein, Inis L. Claude Jr., Robert J. Oppenheimer, Sir Norman Angell, Raymond Aron, Henri Saint-Simon, Immanuel Kant, David Easton, etc (scientists); and more so, the Founding Fathers of The United Nations in 1945. But like Gods effort, all their efforts also have fallen on mans deaf ears, leading humanity to a perpetual perish (Hosea 4:6). Using a case study methodology, this book has established that various forms of conflict perennially scourging the international community are influenced by obsessive self-seeking political passions for national interest defined in terms of power; that these passions are cunningly packaged in dangerous principles of sovereign equality and domestic jurisdiction and the doctrine of survival of the fittest; that it is these viruses that have always undermined and consequently retarded the United Nations efforts to realize fully its mandate as the chief custodian of world peace and security as was intended by its Founding Fathers in 1945 when all nation-states had already proved totally incapable of achieving this elusive goal, thus leading to the eruption of both World War I and II; that this tragedy is a function of mans paradoxical nature, his appetite for both peace and war; that although man is endowed with a unique natural ability to listen and understand better than all other members of the animal kingdom, unfortunately, like Adam and Eve, man is a perpetual hostage to his own double standard nature, which consequently does not allow him to pass an acid test on the virtue of pacta sunt servanda (honesty); and finally that this is why the wishes of the Founding Fathers of the United Nations contained in both the preamble and entire charter have always failed to bear fruit in full since its inception. Hence, an urgent need for an emergency revival of the original concept of this world bodys role by depreciating the existing dangerous supremacy of nation-states sovereignty and legitimacy in appreciation of the sovereignty and legitimacy of the United Nations as a panacea. This pragmatic innovation is cost-effective and, therefore, extremely necessary. Like a nation-states effectively authoritative responsibility over its intercitizen interaction within its respective nation-state jurisdiction, this newly revitalized world body could similarly possess an effectively authoritative responsibility over its interstate interaction, including acts of all nonstate actors within its international jurisdiction. Also, it would be able to contain both those viruses stated above and pathological tendencies of certain temporary insane actor(s) from emotionally resorting to thermonuclear, biological, or any other means of suicide mass terrorism/ genocide as ones payoff option to the source(s) of ones long helpless frustration and suffering that could consequently lead humanity to an automatic global Doomsday simply because of absence of such a needed world body to serve as an umpire for all in conformity with the wishes of the UN Founding Fathers.

Gothic Stories Within Stories

Frame Narratives and Realism in the Genre, 1790–1900

Frame narratives—stories within stories—are featured in nearly every canonical Gothic novel. Sometimes dismissed as a shopworn convention of the genre, frame narratives in fact function as a dynamic basis for imaginative variation and are vital to evaluating the diverse Gothic tradition. The juxtaposition between the everyday “frame world” of the story and the disturbing embedded narrative allows the monstrous to escape textual confines, forcing the reader to experience the reassurance of the ordinary alongside the horror of the uncanny.

Planting Your Family Tree Online is designed to take you step-by-step through the process of creating a genealogy Web site. When people begin their genealogical adventure, they usually interview elderly members of the family and contact other family members. The next step is usually one of organization of the information collected. The third step is usually to share this information with other family members, traditionally by publishing research in a book. However, a family Web site has numerous advantages: It is interactive so others can contribute their stories and pictures. It will help you find long-lost relatives. It is an ideal way to preserve research for the entire family. It will break down the walls that have stumped you in your research. It recognizes that family research is an ongoing process, This book is written by Cyndi Howells, owner and webmaster of Cyndi's List, a Web site of more than 130,000 online genealogical resources. Cyndi points out, "This book is loaded with URLs to Web sites that will give you everything you need to create a beautiful family tree online." However, Web site URLs change daily and some may no longer work. She has created web pages as part of Cyndi's List that correspond to the features of the book so that the URLs will be kept up-to-date.

Jay Maisel has been hailed as one of the most brilliant and gifted photographers of all time. But he is also much more than that–he is a mentor, teacher, and trailblazer to many photographers, and a hero to those who feel Jay’s teaching has changed the way they see and create their own photography. He is a living legend whose work is studied around the world, and whose teaching style and presentation garner standing ovations and critical acclaim every time he takes the stage. In his first educational book, Light, Gesture, and Color, Jay put his amazing insights and learning moments from a lifetime behind the lens into a book that communicated the three most important aspects of street photography: light, gesture, and color. Here, in It’s Not About the F-Stop, Jay builds on that success to take you beyond the buttons and dials on your camera to continue to teach you how to “see” like a photographer, and how to capture the world around you in a way that delights, intrigues, and challenges the viewer. Each page unveils something new and inspires you to rethink everything you know about the bigger picture of photography. This isn’t a book about f-stops or ISOs. It’s about seeing. And nobody communicates this, visually or through the written word, like Jay Maisel.

The story is about how the author overcame the challenges in his life. Since he was a child he has already seen the cruelty and injustices of man. He has lived in poverty in the third world (Philippines) and he knows how it looks like to live under privileged and being suppressed. Many people who went through the hardship he experienced have just given up and made no attempt to improve their situation. He did not loss hope. Instead he strived to overcome all those challenges. He acquired his education on his own to improve his livelihood. And he overcame suppression by his own method. When he was young he would usually react violent each time someone shows disrespect of his rights or his friend’s or fellow-men’s rights. But he has developed a more constructive and effective way of correcting or improving the situation. He learned to communicate his likes and dislikes and he and many others have benefited from it.
