What if Questlove threw a potluck dinner, and everybody came? He picked the guests. The guests picked the recipes. The result is the ultimate potluck cookbook Questlove is best known for his achievements in the music world, but his interest in food runs a close second. He has hosted a series of renowned Food Salons and conversations with some of America's most prominent chefs. Now he is turning his hand to creating a cookbook. In Mixtape Potluck Cookbook , Questlove imagines the ultimate potluck dinner party, inviting more than fifty chefs, entertainers, and musicians-such as Eric Ripert, Natalie Portman, and Q-Tip-and asking them to bring along their favorite recipes. He also pairs each cook with a song that he feels best captures their unique creative energy.

No way, blue jay, and never again. That's the vow Linney Van Horn has made regarding single dads and their adorable children. After all, that's why she's tucked tail and hauled herself and her beloved Arabian horse clear across the country from New Jersey to the small town of Venture, Colorado. To mend her bruised heart - and ego - and start over. However, the good Lord has a different "do-over" in mind for Linney. She finds herself living next door to Stonewall "Stone" Wheeler, the frustratingly stubborn, but oh, so ruggedly hand-some farrier, and his seven-year-old son, Beau. A widower, Stone has buried himself in his work to avoid the grief of losing his wife. Determined to grow his horse-shoeing business and raise his child, falling in love is the last thing on his mind. Until an equally stubborn - but pretty as a daisy - teacher moves into the cottage besides his, and charms both him and his son. Divine intervention. Yup, it's a beautiful thing. It's going to take one adorable little boy, a pair of spirited horses, and a near-fatal accident to convince Linney and Stone a second chance at a grace-filled forever is theirs for the asking. 1.

I’ve been asked to speak at a few schools on tips for succeeding in residency. Rather than give them a few tips in a PowerPoint or hand them one of the books I’d already written, I asked myself: At the moment a student gets the very first interview email, what is their next best step?For one student, it was impossible to identify a misstep, and that misstep is why I authored this book. He applied to a residency site on time and because he dutifully didn’t check email during rotation, he missed not only an email, but an email that had a phone appointment set for that day.He then immediately emailed back apologizing for the miss and asked to reschedule. As soon as that second email went out, his phone rang. On the other line was a three person panel starting the phone interview - now.This flash interview was clearly meant to screen applicants by asking tough questions that one could not look up quickly. While I will talk more about that type of interview in this book, what I realized was there is no “In case of interview invitation, break glass”, where students know exactly where to start once they do get an invitation.This audiobook is that first step - a quick run-through of do's and don’ts, so you don’t get blindsided. Hopefully, you’ll optimistically listen to it ahead of that first interview email. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tony Guerra.

Reflection - a novel about humor and cruelty; about evil, lust, and loss; about strength of family; about the power to overcome pain; about the power to laugh; and, above all, about the power to be human. When Mark is about 11 years old, he is found by Harry - drunk, homeless, and wandering. Harry adopts the child, and together they build for themselves a perfect world. A world where nothing is missing. One day, however, Harry discovers that Mark is not who he thought he was, and the picture is completely reversed. Who is Mark? What is Mark? Noah grew up without a father in a completely normal town, but at the age of 16, someone or something tries to kill her. Something unknown saves her life and takes care to preserve it at all costs. Why? What is it? What is the connection between her and her missing father? Fat is a brilliant police inspector who solves puzzles with grace. One day he encounters a mystery whose solution could change his life, the lives of those around him, and the world. Will Fat accept the challenge? Archie has the best restaurant in the world. The whole point of his life is to cook and feed his guests. One day someone enters the restaurant. Meeting her will change his life forever. Norman Milo is a warden in a prison that no one ever escaped from. But one day Norman comes to his watch and discovers, to his horror, that the most dangerous prisoner escaped. All of these people, with a variety of other characters - and quite a few cats - find themselves in a bizarre adventure across borders and limits, with horror and humor, which are used interchangeably. And thus they are forced to answer fateful questions: Is our world really as simple as it seems? Are the unknown forces around us playing with us - or asking that we extend them a helping hand? Reflection is Kobi (Jacob) Kamin's second book . He is an avid book lover and owner of the oldest bookshop, East of Eden (Kidmat Eden). /p 1. Hebrew.

Anyone that has watched, read or listened to the news these last years can testify to the fact that the world is a most dangerous place. And yet, there are people who, like the proverbial fireman, walk into the danger risking their life in order to make a difference in the lives of those that are indigenous that live in constant threat for their life. Humanitarians and missionaries are some of these people who valiantly and voluntarily walk into the burning building of third world cultures that often are at war and are the hot spots of terrorism. In these last years, we have received the news of many of these "Good Samaritans" who have been kidnapped, raped and murdered. The author of this work has been to some of these fields and countries. He has questioned how can he can help with the trauma that these helpers of others have experienced first hand and second hand. This work focuses on one particular organization and its work in Sudan. This study uses the Myers Briggs Personality Type Indicator as a baseline asking if it can be used to predict a "Good Samaritan's" response to the stress of such work. This work divulges the struggle for those who work as "Good Samaritans".

Paul Joseph Schrader (born July 22, 1946) is an American screenwriter and film director. Despite his credentials as a director, Schrader has received more recognition for his screenplays for others, especially Martin Scorsese''s Taxi Driver. He is often called one of the best screenwriters never to be nominated for an Academy Award. Schrader was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the son of Joan (née Fisher) and Charles A. Schrader, an executive. Schrader''s family practiced in the Calvinist Dutch Reformed Church, and his early life was based upon the religion''s strict principles and parental education. When he disobeyed his mother, she would stab his hand with a pin, asking, "You think that felt bad? Hell is like that, only every second and all over your body". He did not see a film until he was eighteen years old, and was able to sneak away from home, in an interview he stated that The Absent-Minded Professor was the first film he saw, and according to Peter Biskind''s Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, he had a full blown panic attack right before he saw it.

Civil war has been a recurring feature of human societies throughout history - and an essential catalyst for major international conflict. And since 1945 the number of civil wars in the world has grown steadily, bringing devastation on a scale more traditionally associated with international wars.In spite of this, there is no classic treatise on civil war to compare with the classic works we have on war, revolution, or peace. On the one hand, historians have tended to treat the 'big' civil wars such as the American and the Spanish in isolation. On the other, social scientists have concentrated on identifying common patterns, without looking in too much detail at the specifics of any given conflict.Focusing on the numerous civil conflicts that have occurred throughout the world since the Second World War, Bill Kissane bridges this gap, asking what the recent social science literature adds to what we already know about civil war, but also how insights from the historical literature, from the ancient Greeks onwards, can help explain the violent experience of so many parts of the world since 1945.At its heart is the question of what makes the contemporary challenge posed by civil war so different to that of past periods - and what, if anything, is new about the contemporary experience of civil war at the dawn of the twenty-first century.
