Book Description
This hot-headed rookie needs discipline—on and off the field. Pitcher Nico Agresta is desperate to live up to his family’s baseball legacy. Since he was a teenager crushing on his big brother’s teammate, he’s known he can’t act on his desires. His father’s made it clear there should be no queers on the field, but if Nico can win Rookie of the Year like his dad and brother did, maybe he can prove he’s worthy after all. At 34, veteran catcher Jake Fitzgerald just wants to finish out his contract and retire. His team doesn't have a prayer of making the playoffs, but who needs the stress? Jake lost his passion for the game—and life—after driving away the man he loved, and he swore he’d never risk his heart again. Then he’s traded to a team that wants a vet behind the plate to tame their new star pitcher. Jake is shocked to find the gangly kid he once knew has grown into a gorgeous young man. But tightly wound Nico’s having trouble controlling his temper in his quest for perfection, and Jake needs to teach him patience and restraint on the mound. When their push and pull explodes into the bedroom, Nico and Jake will both learn how much they’ll risk for love. This gay sports romance from Keira Andrews features men who have been repressing their feelings far too long, light BDSM, an age difference, sweaty locker rooms, and of course a happy ending.

Reading the Signs PDF Book Detail Author: Mohammad Hashim Kamali
Publisher: International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT)
ISBN: 1642052345

Pages : 36

Book Description
Advanced in this paper is a Qur’anic perspective on thinking, rationality, and critical reason, which in its critical and goal-oriented dimensions provides a set of guidelines that ensures its purity and purpose from negative reductionist influences. The guidelines so provided are also rich in advancing a spiritual dimension with the understanding that thinking which is not informed by morality and faith can lose its direction and purpose and can even become harmful to human welfare. The paper begins with a discussion of the divine signs, the ayat, and the prominent profile that they take in the Qur’anic conception of thinking. Other topics discussed include an identification of the sources of knowledge in the Qur’an, factors that impede rational thinking, and a historical sketch of the golden age of scientific creativity and its eventual decline. A brief section is also devoted to ijtihad and where it fits into the scheme of our analysis on thinking, followed by a short comparison of Islamic and Western philosophical perceptions of rationality.

Book Description
The purpose of this book is to provide student affairs professionals who work at Catholic colleges and universities a tool for reflection and dialogue on difficult issues they face in their campuses. It is intended to be used in staff development sessions, in training sessions with student leaders and resident assistants, and in master’s level student affairs preparation programs at Catholic colleges and universities. This book is the next step in a series of projects that began in the early 1990s after the publication by the Vatican of the apostolic constitution. This book is a collection of case studies that focus on particular issues related to Catholic identity that are faced by student affairs professionals who work at Catholic colleges and universities. By its very nature, the focus on the difficult issues we face is a limitation. The editors in no way wish to imply that Catholic identity is only about problems. Previous research and experience clearly indicates those who work at Catholic institutions understand and embrace the opportunities that this environment provides for them. But as Schaller and Boyle (2006) indicated, there is a need for dialogue around the difficult issues that we face. The editors believe that a book of case studies is particularly helpful because it allows a staff to discuss problems at fictionalized universities and then ask themselves, “What would we do here?” The editors solicited cases using a mailing list provided by the ASACCU; thus, the cases included in this book represent the real concerns of those practicing in the field. Some of the cases that are included are true stories of situations that actually happened, some are fictional, and some are hybrid stories based on actual events but changed to illustrate an issue. To protect the privacy of those who were kind enough to share their difficult issues with their colleagues, the names of case contributors are listed at the beginning of the book in alphabetical order, rather than being listed with the cases they contributed.

Book Description
In September 1982, Aleida said four things to me, three of which were predictions. ‘You will go into healing’ ‘Do you know green is really red?’ ‘You will write a book one day’ ‘Your legs will be all right.’ The last after trying to hide her shocked expression. In January 1983, a month before her 63rd birthday, Aleida died. Now, twenty years later, I look back and realise what this great lady saw then, how my life was to unfold. This book is all about my journey to healing. From the moment her mother-in-law predicted she would suffer problems with her legs, Marjolyn explored different methods to prepare herself for an unknown physical challenge and healing. Born in the East Indies, now known as Indonesia, Marjolyn worked as a teacher and raised four children in Australia. Despite the demands of being a working mum she also made time to learn many healing modalities. She was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 1994. Over the next decade, it became increasingly difficult to manage. It became so bad that she wished she could die until… Marjolyn realised, as time went on, that the predictions her mother-in-law had made a decade earlier were starting to come to fruition. The last one being: ‘Your legs will be all right.’

Languages : en
Pages : 144

Book Description
This helpful workbook functions as a companion and supplement to Anna Mindess's earlier book, Reading Between the Signs: A Cultural Guide for Sign Language Interpreters, a recognized classic text for sign language interpreters and ASL students. It is arranged to correspond with the theory presented in the book and expands its focus to the relativity of politeness and the distinction between direct and indirect communication styles, both of which are important elements in comparing Deaf and mainstream cultures. Hands-on exercises allow students to better comprehend the sometimes-puzzling differences of culturally appropriate behavior. The book also helps students explore their own culture as well as the American Deaf culture in ways that reveal the differences between the two. Role play, discussion topics and critical incidents increase first-hand understanding of the relationship between the Deaf and Hearing communities.

Reading the Signs - The Meaning from a Single Perspective 'We live in a time which encapsulates a strange mixture of knowing and unknowing. The wealth of what has become known through advances in the sciences is considerable, and increases all the time. But in some ways this has served to distract us from the wider questions concerning the meaning of our lives: we are busy with our new toys, and we seem more than happy to settle for blurry, inconsistent and half-hearted attempts to understand the human condition. But it won't go away, and this paucity of meaning has come to cause problems both in the way that we relate to each other and in the way that we interact with the environment that we are living in...' 60,000 wds.

Powers of Imagining

Powers of Imagining PDF Book Detail Author: Antonio T. de Nicolas
Publisher: SUNY Press
ISBN: 9780887061103
Category : Religion
Languages : en
Pages : 390

Book Description
This book presents a new translation of the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius de Loyola, of his Spiritual Diary, of his Autobiography, and some of his letters. These translations are introduced by a hermeneutical commentary laying out the theory and practices of the decision-making power of imagining. Ignatius proposed in his Spiritual Exercises a form of decision-oriented mysticism, and through their use, gathered around him a group of associates who became the firs members of the Jesuit Order. Under the control of later, doctrinally oriented theologians, the practical, decision-oriented mystical character of the original Exercises was gradually replaced by a more theoretical and devotional character. Antonio T. de Nicolas recovers in his translations and through his critical apparatus, the original decision-oriented thrust of Ignatius.
