Book Description
A RECOMMENDED SUMMER READ BY THE NEW YORK TIMES, USA TODAY, TIME, AND NEWSWEEK Longtime Jeopardy! host and television icon Alex Trebek reflects on his life and career. Since debuting as the host of Jeopardy! in 1984, Alex Trebek has been something like a family member to millions of television viewers, bringing entertainment and education into their homes five nights a week. Last year, he made the stunning announcement that he had been diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. What followed was an incredible outpouring of love and kindness. Social media was flooded with messages of support, and the Jeopardy! studio received boxes of cards and letters offering guidance, encouragement, and prayers. For over three decades, Trebek had resisted countless appeals to write a book about his life. Yet he was moved so much by all the goodwill, he felt compelled to finally share his story. “I want people to know a little more about the person they have been cheering on for the past year,” he writes in The Answer Is…: Reflections on My Life. The book combines illuminating personal anecdotes with Trebek’s thoughts on a range of topics, including marriage, parenthood, education, success, spirituality, and philanthropy. Trebek also addresses the questions he gets asked most often by Jeopardy! fans, such as what prompted him to shave his signature mustache, his insights on legendary players like Ken Jennings and James Holzhauer, and his opinion of Will Ferrell’s Saturday Night Live impersonation. The book uses a novel structure inspired by Jeopardy!, with each chapter title in the form of a question, and features dozens of never-before-seen photos that candidly capture Trebek over the years. This wise, charming, and inspiring book is further evidence why Trebek has long been considered one of the most beloved and respected figures in entertainment.

Book Description
Reflections: My Life, My Country Seven Years after 9/11, aims to capture the thoughts and feelings of people across America about how their lives have been affected, directly or indirectly, by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. There is a strong sense that something changed not just on that day but in the weeks, months and years since the attacks. Many of us also find ourselves unable to quantify what that change has been. This feeling has inspired Citizens for Global Solutions to try and capture that feeling in a collective way. It is our hope that these essays, taken together, will give us all a better idea of exactly what this change has been, and what it means to Americans across the country.

Cross Cultural Reflections on Chinese Aesthetics Gender Embodiment and Learning

Cross Cultural Reflections on Chinese Aesthetics  Gender  Embodiment and Learning PDF Book Detail Author: Eva Kit Wah Man
Publisher: Springer Nature
ISBN: 9811502102
Category : Philosophy
Languages : en
Pages : 178

Book Description
​This book gathers research and writings that reflect on traditional and current global issues related to art and aesthetics, gender perspectives, body theories, knowledge and learning. It illustrates these core dimensions, which are bringing together philosophy, tradition and cultural studies and laying the groundwork for comparative research and dialogues between aesthetics, Chinese philosophies, Western feminist studies and cross-cultural thought. Pursuing an interdisciplinary approach, the book also integrates philosophical enquiries with cultural anthropology and contextual studies. As implied in the title, the main methodologies are cross-cultural and comparative studies, which touch on performances in art and aesthetics, social existence and education, and show that philosophical enquiries, aesthetical representation and gender politics are simultaneously historical, living and contextual. The book gathers a wealth of cross-cultural reflections on philosophical aesthetics, gender existence and cultural traditions. The critical thinking within will benefit undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in the area of comparative philosophies. It blends academic rigor with personal reflection, which is a critical practice in feminist philosophy itself.

Meaning

Meaning PDF Book Detail Author: David E. Cooper
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 1317489314
Category : Philosophy
Languages : en
Pages : 137

Book Description
Meaning is one of our most central and most ubiquitous concepts. Anything at all may, in suitable contexts, have meaning ascribed to it. In this wide-ranging book, David Cooper departs from the usual focus on linguistic meaning to discuss how works of art, ceremony, social action, bodily gesture, and the purpose of life can all be meaningful. He argues that the notion of meaning is best approached by considering what we accept as explanations of meaning in everyday practice and shows that in these situations we are explaining the appropriate fit of an item - whether a word or an artwork - with something larger than or outside of itself. This fuller account of meaning explores questions of the meaning of meaning and tackles issues such as whether meaning is just a misleading 'folk' term for something more basic, whether there really is meaning at all, and whether we should strive for meaning or let our lives 'just be' rather than mean. By taking the problem of meaning out of the technical philosophy of language and providing a more general account, Cooper is able to offer new insights into the import, function, and status of meaning that will be of interest not only to philosophers of language but to students and philosophers working in areas such as epistemology and metaphysics.

Mary s Prayer

Mary s Prayer PDF Book Detail Author: Mary McGuinness
Publisher: Archway Publishing
ISBN: 1452520712
Category : Biography & Autobiography
Languages : en
Pages : 179

Book Description
This memoir of Mary's spiritual journey of self-discovery to find inner peace spans a period of fourteen years in which she was unable to find work due to illness. Throughout this period, she began to search for answers herself, which resulted in studying for a degree in psychology. The music of John Lennon and The Beatles has always been important to Mary, and it was through this music that the healing process began. John Lennon's character had inspired her throughout her life, particularly in his work for peace with his wife, Yoko Ono. Music in general was very important to the journey that Mary travelled. Mary's faith was paramount to the healing process, and she visited the Shrine of Lourdes in France, which was a turning point in her life. In the Church of Frauenkirche in Munich, Mary also felt as though she had received a blessing. The support of Mary's family was very important to her recovery. The psychology studies, in particular those of social psychology, impacted on Mary's understanding of the illness and motivated her to engage in her own personal research. This has ultimately influenced this book. Similar to John Lennon's song, "In My Life," the people that Mary met and the places that she visited along the journey were essential to initiate changes in her life. Social Construction Theory and the New Thought Movement were pivotal in changing Mary's attitudes and promoted a new way of thinking, which impacted on her recovery. Finally, visiting Liverpool, England, re-energized Mary, and it was critical in changing her life. It is hoped that this story would inspire others who are hoping to make similar changes in their own lives.

Category : Self-Help
Languages : en
Pages : 196

Book Description
LIT CANDLES We keep candles in our homes in case of power failures, for prayer or to create a cozy atmosphere or simply for their beauty. Their real purpose is and has always been to dispel darkness and in doing so bring comfort and reassurance to us in physical darkness. We are all familiar with the Christophers motto. It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. In South Africa before apartheid was abolished, people would light a candle and place it in a window as a sign of hope, that one day this evil would be overcome. It soon was declared illegal, as illegal as carrying a gun. The village children would laugh and say, The government is afraid of candles. Things did get better for them as a people with the end of apartheid after the long years of darkness. It is an appalling sense of darkness we encounter whenever there is a diagnosis of illness that completely re-directs our lives and wipes out our plans for our lives as well as our future. If ever there is a time in our lives we need this darkness dispelled it is in this bewildering place. So many of us have given up our loved ones to cancer, but there is a candle lit and it was lit by a doctor at a cancer facility and there is light in his words:
