Essays of Warren Buffett Lessons for Investors and Managers
Essays of Warren Buffett Lessons for Investors and Managers
This is an excellent book which is a collection of excerpts from the annual letter to shareholders from Berkshire. Cunningham has done an superb job of collating this material and extracting the most important sections which give detailed and in depth view of the workings of Buffett and Charlie Munger and lay out his philosophy and his strategies and his evolution as an investor, which I found particularly fascinating. His move from being a Graham clone to his adoption of Fisher's approach and his fine tuning of his criteria for investmnet.He deals with the amazing successes and the numerous failures and mistakes. For anyone interested in improving their investment expertise and learning about Buffett's approach this is an absolute must. A book that I shall revisit time and again.The Essays of Warren Buffett: Lessons for Investors and Managers

The Business Wisdom of Steve Jobs: 250 Quotes from the Innovator Who Changed the World
This book provides many quotes from Steve Jobs. Most of us look to him as an innovator and a smart business person. The quotes were taken from some of his presentations in life or interviews. Some are more thought provoking than others. Overall, because I knew he was an intellect and a techie, it would not be like a quote book of Voltaire or Jack Prelutsky. It is a different genre of quotes fit for business. Enjoy!

This cd is a very good compilation. Featuring some of Aretha's biggest hits. Chain of Fools, and Respect are known the world round. This cd also features such classics as Baby, I love you and I Never Loved a Man The Way that I Love You. I personally enjoy Aretha's version of te Smokey Robinson and The Miracle's classic Tears of A Clown and the Band's anthem The Wait. This cd shows the Queen in all her glory.

Shadows and Fog
Shadows and Fog
Woody Allen's 1991 film Shadows and Fog is undoubtedly a very intriguing film, with strong technical links back to German Expressionism, but, for me, the bold visual impression does not lift it above a relatively middling entry in Allen's diverse filmography.

The film is based on Allen's single act play Death and takes the form of a Kafka-esque story with Allen playing paranoid clerk Max Kleinman, who is one of a number of suspects in a recent spate of murders taking place in a Transylvania-like landscape, beautifully filmed by one of Allen's regular cinematographer's Carlo Di Palma (best known for his work with Antonioni). As the film title suggests, the action takes place in a dark, shadowy, foggy backdrop which creates a creepy atmosphere, visually reminiscent of German Expressionist films such as those of F.W.Murnau and Fritz Lang and, more recently, the early films of David Lynch, such as Eraserhead and The Elephant Man. In Kleinman's attempts to evade his pursuing vigilante gang and to understand why he is the subject of their pursuit, he comes across Irmy (played by Mia Farrow), a sword swallower, part of a travelling circus in the area, who has deserted her erstwhile circus clown boyfriend (John Malkovich). Kleinman and Irmy embark on a series of a misadventures, including an hilarious sequence in which Irmy finds herself in the local brothel, where she is finally tempted (for $700) to sleep with John Cusack's rich and philosophical beatnik student Jack.

Allen has certainly assembled an all-star cast for the film, with impressive turns by Donald Pleasance as the doctor, Lily Tomlin as one of the whores, and Allen regular Julie Kavner, as the unfortunate Alma, who Kleinman stood up at the marriage altar, for which Alma has clearly not forgiven him. Also appearing are Madonna, Jodie Foster (as another whore), John C Reilly, William H Macey, Kathy Bates and many other well-known names, but, for me, the presence of such an enormous cast merely serves to illustrate the rather disjointed nature of the film.

The main themes of the film are the typical Allen preoccupations of death, God, illusion, nihilism and paranoia, with the mob scenes in pursuit of the elusive murderer also seeming to suggest potential Nazi anti-semitic elements. Allen includes some elements of fantasy, such as when he and the magician disappear into a mirror (shades here of the classic The Purple Rose Of Cairo). But overall the film does not quite work for me, and though the likes of the ever-dependable Mia Farrow put in a sterling effort, there is a shortage of audience empathy (and even high quality one-liners) which characterises Allen's classic films.

Certainly worth seeing, however, for the plus points mentioned above.
Core Java Volume I--Fundamentals (11th Edition) (Core Series)
Core Java Volume I--Fundamentals (11th Edition) (Core Series)
The book is overall very good in that the writing is concise, informative, and even largely fun to read for a programming language book. But this series is very strangely organized, and you should be aware of this.

This is Core Java, Volume I: Fundamentals, with a sister book named Core Java, Volume II: Advanced Features. But those title are very misleading. Many pages in the Fundamentals volume properly belong in the Advanced Features volume, and vice versa. For example, in the Fundamentals book the author includes many pages covering such topics as Reflection, Proxies & the Class Loader, and so forth. These are advanced topics if you ask me, and it would seem the author himself would agree! In not just one but in many places he says, "Application programmers can safely skip this section". I agree, because these sections have no place in book about fundamentals. But meanwhile very important topics which I would consider to be Java fundamentals are not covered in the Fundamentals volume, but in the Advanced Topics. Basic File I/O is in the Advanced Topics book, Reflection is in the Fundamentals book. That's exactly backwards!

Both Basic File I/O and Networking are in the Advanced Topics book. At the end of the Fundamentals book, you won't be able write useful programs because the very basic essentials of how to get data into them will have never been presented to you. You might be able to create some very basic GUI applications from the Fundamentals book, but what they might be doing besides looking pretty I don't know. Again, refer to the Advanced Topics book to read/write files to connect to anything on a network, etc. and generally having anything interesting to operate upon.

These books in tandem might do you well, but know that going in. The Fundamentals book by itself is really not sufficient to stand alone usefully.

These are really sturdy glasses of medium size. not too large or delicate. Great if you're looking for something a bit sturdier than the usual martini glass. Really like these. They're not fancy so not really "giftable" unless you want to give a sturdy glass as a gift. The height is a bit shorter than usual which i like because it hangs nice from the bar without interfering too much with other things. I recommend!
Fables: Legends in Exile, Vol. 1
Fables: Legends in Exile, Vol. 1
I haven't read many graphic novels.

It's not that I dislike them . . . at least not at this point--I don't have enough experience to definitively state my feelings one way or another. *shrugs awkwardly*

BUT. I've been curious for awhile, and this seemed like a good place to start. I <i>do</i> like pretty pictures, and, hello, <i>fables</i>, so practically guaranteed to like it.

So I one-clicked, then I read the whole thing in a couple hours. I loved it. A LOT.

In this first volume, there was Snow White and Rose Red (one of my childhood favorites), a sword-wielding Cinderella, Prince Charming (at least twice divorced, and a frat boy, dumb dumb, besides), Beauty and the Beast (bickering like an old married couple), a typically creeptastic Bluebeard, Jack of magic beans fame (and a schmoe), a reformed . . . <i>ish</i> Big Bad Wolf, one of the three little pigs (who doesn't like country life), and an understandably angsty Pinocchio (b/c three-hundred+ years old, and stuck in the body of a pre-pubescent boy).

And that's just off the top of my head.

ALSO, this series predates <b><a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1843230" target="_blank">Once Upon a Time</a></b> and all the bandwagoners that followed by a decade. So no copycats here, FYI.

BUT.

After 120ish pages of pretty pictures and dialogue that rarely crossed over the line from basic to clever (or one of a myriad of other adjectives that can be used to describe writing that isn't BLAH), there were a handful of full text pages that gave a rather fantastical accounting of how the two MCs met.

Those six or eight pages were by far my favorite part of the book.

That's not to say that I didn't enjoy the rest of it--I did. But WORDS, man, WORDS. I don't know what it says about me that words are the more effective communicators, but yeah, all of that <i>"a picture is worth a thousand words,"</i> nonsense is . . . nonsense.

Despite an overt admission of attraction from one of the characters to another, and the various illustrations that accompanied it, it was the subtle longing revealed through words that made me feel the agony of unrequited love more potently than any drawing ever could. The possibility that a beast decided to take human form in order to be closer to the girl whose scent he couldn't forget . . .

*swoons*

<i>Maybe</i>. Then again, maybe he was just sick of running around in the forest and eating the boring humans who were stupid enough to wander the woods of his lackluster new home. #thatwouldsuck

I guess I'll see. <------b/c it's a given that I'll be reading the next one. *winks* Highly recommended, especially to graphic novels noobs who love fairytales.

<b>UPDATE:</b> since finishing Volume 1, I've devoured an embarrassing number of additional installments, and the dialogue has <i>significantly</i> improved. Sometimes it's punny, sometimes it's slyly clever (especially on the social commentary front), but it's rarely BLAH. FYI.

This my second Ulefone, I had the X5 and picked up this new X7 and love it! The form factor (size) is a little tighter and fits much better in my pockets than the X5 since it is a little bit shorter. The camera is much improved over the X5 and takes pictures that are sharper and able to focus on close objects much better than the X5. The battery is only 4000mah but it will still last almost 3 days for me using mostly email and text messages and taking pictures. I have used the x5 and now this x7 out hiking and backpacking in the so calif deserts in extreme heat and dirt/sand conditions and it has never failed me.

The camera takes great pictures and the underwater photos are easy to get good results with, I took a photo of my water fountain and then dunked it into the water and took a picture of the lights down at the bottom. You can see they are sharp and the colors are vibrant and clean.

I use T-mobile and in the past I could only get wifi calling with t-mobile brand phones but the X7 works perfectly with the t-mobile wifi calling so I can still make and receive calls while at work in difficult IT rooms that have no cellular service!

It also a fingerprint reader that allows you to gently touch the phone in a natural hand position to unlock it. I have tried it and it works as advertised but I prefer to manually use a PIN but am sure there are lots of people will love the fingerprint reader.

I don't think you can find a better phone at a price even close to this one, don't look any further...buy it!

MiSiBao Retractable Ballpoint Pens Black Ink 1mm Medium Point Work Pen Smooth Writing for Men Women Office Business (12-Pack)
I rather like these pens. The point looks fine and writes a little finer than 1 mm but it isnt a true fine pen, which is good because I dont like fine pens. But so far, they havent been gloppy or skipped when writing. I like the feel of the rubber grip and that the pen is a smidge thicker than a normal pen. The colors are nice and that they come in a multicolored pack is nice.
I probably missed it in the description but I didn't know they came with 2 refills so that was a nice surprise! Could probably be refilled with another retractable refill that is thin.
Would love to see these in blue ink. I rarely buy black ink pens because it seems that's all there ever is anywhere. I just prefer blue.
Overall, I am happy with the purchase and if I used all the ink, would probably try to find refills if I still have them and they aren't all scratched up. Was thinking possibly might make a good gift.

Ballon Hund – große – Indigo – Tier Figur – Art Skulptur
Sadly after literally only a few weeks it has faded in places, which helps at least that I know I'm not going mad because I can still see bits of the original colour. It was a bright blue and now its got many patches of lighter scruffy colour. I loved it out of the box but it is a WASTE of your money. Not remotely a quality product and NO it wasn't in any sunlight at all or polished with anything detrimental - its just sadly rubbish.
Captain America
Captain America
Thats right. This lame late 70s TV movie has about an hour of boredom and then the guy finally puts on the Captain America costume and fights. Up until that point the film is tedious beyond explanation. Directed by Ron Holcomb who did shows like A-Team, Battlestar Galactica, Fantasy Island, and Quincy. Cap is like a boring Quincy episode until the action starts an hour later, then its like A Team. This is extremely small budget and corny, but not in a good way. Captain America does have a cool motorcycle and a van, but most people did in the 70s. 6'3" Reb Brown fits the role physically, but he can't act and is more like a football player than Captain America. Look out for Steve Forrest from the 70s show SWAT. There is actually a sequel called "Death too soon" which pulled out the acting talents of Connie Selleca (TVs HOTEL! Woopee!) and horror legend Christopher Lee who is awesome, but no stranger to camp/cheese. I can't speak for the sequel because after this first one, I didn't bother. This one is 2 hours long with maybe 20 minutes of Captain America in costume. What? Still, in comparison to the other film version of Captain America from 1991...what a disaster, the 70s version isn't so bad. Still this '79 movie is mostly boring and slow until Captain America appears and even then its like "thats it?".
Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers Season 1
Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers Season 1
This isn't your cable cartoon animation. The focus is on Loki and his success, failure and the one thing he thought he wanted. The voice acting is good and the world created by the artists is almost spot on. I'm a long time comic book reader so yes, it isn't quite the same but it is a slightly different medium.

There are points that strain credibility. Loki gains power over Asgard and there isn't a on-going civil war? Asgard is more than Oden and Thor so I'd think that there would be more of an continuous turmoil in the land. This is a minor quibble.

The ending I do have an issue with it. I think that there must has been a pressure to quickly end the project. It was abrupt. I'd say that if you have a lazy Sunday afternoon this is an interesting time-passer for Thor comic book fans. If your fan experience comes from the movie you might not understand or like this style of narrative motion graphic animation.
Rubie's Costume Men's Marvel Classic Adult Deluxe Thor Costume
Rubie's Costume Men's Marvel Classic Adult Deluxe Thor Costume
I'm well within the specifications.

That said the velcro along the back did not want to stay done, especially when I leaned forward, you need to be very thin to use this. That ended up being okay for the night because the cape hide it.

At 5'10, when I sat down with this the feet covers were at mid shin.

The padding was so maybe 10x more full in one bicep than the other, and they don't line up well with your arms muscles making it look weird.

If you're extremely thin and under 5'9 this might work for you anyways

Nora Roberts CD Collection 2: Hidden Riches, True Betrayals, Homeport, The Reef
I love Nora Roberts’ books. I bought this CD collection because I was going on a long driving trip and wanted to listen to her books. Imagine my surprise when I was listening to the books that the chapters are mixed up. The recordings jump from a scene late in the book to one earlier. Impossible to follow. And - totally my fault - the books are abridged! First huge disappointment from Amazon.
Considering Kate (Stanislaskis Book 6)
Considering Kate (Stanislaskis Book 6)
Considering Kate is the last of six books in Norah Roberts' fine and fascinating series on the Stanislaski Family. It's NOT a new series of books, so if you've been reading Nora for a couple of decades, as I have, you've probably already read all six and enjoyed them once. They're worth another read and these e-versions definitely belong on the Kindles of Nora's devoted fans. Just be careful and try to read them in order; Amazon doesn't make this easy because on the KINDLE Bookstore site, if you search for "Stanislaski series" you'll be taken to a page that has the first two (or maybe three) in the order in which they were written, but gets the others all mixed up! To help you out, here is the chronological order of the series (and a couple of words on the relationship with Natasha of each protagonist):
1. Taming Natasha
2. Luring a Lady, featuring Mikhail, Natasha's brother.
3. Falling for Rachel, featuring Rachel, Natasha's sister.
4. Convincing Alex, featuring Alexi, Natasha's brother.
5. Waiting for Nick, featuring Natasha's brother-in-law's brother!!
6. Considering Kate, featuring Natasha' s daughter.
In all of the books, you'll also meet or renew your relationship with Mama (Nadia) and Papa (Yuri) Stanislaski. Enjoy!

HOLD THE PRESSES. AN UPDATE: As of Jan. 15, 2014, Amazon's Kindle Store is offering, for a great price, the ebook Stanislaski's Bundle 1 of 2: Considering Kate\Convincing Alex\Falling for Rachel. Note, however, that once again, the publisher managed to mess up the order in which the books should be read for the best reader enjoyment! Amazing!!
Eugene Onegin: A Novel in Verse (Oxford World's Classics)
Eugene Onegin: A Novel in Verse (Oxford World's Classics)
Eugene Onegin, a classic of world literature, comparable in stature to King Lear in the UK, the Divine Comedy in Italy and Don Quixote in Spain, need not be commented on. The real question is, which translation should you buy? The brief answer is either the Falen translation or Anthony Briggs' translation, and preferably both.

The five-star rating of this article refers to James Falen's Oxford World's Classics translation (but Briggs' translation deserves five stars too). In chronological order, it is the 8th translation of the poem into English. Its chief merit is the unforced fluency of the verse, and this is the most important point to make. Where liberties are taken with the feminine rhymes, the translator's success is mixed. 'Adherents/interference' is acceptable because of the shared long vowel sound; whereas, 'worry/necessary', at least to my ear, is rather strained. This is really my only criticism of Falen's translation, and it is not sufficiently problematic to dock a star.

To turn to the Briggs translation, again the verse runs smoothly. An obvious difference is that Briggs uses feminine half-rhymes more frequently. Often these are inventive and original (e.g. 'probity/nobody' and 'patience/Ancients'). You will not find any 'worry/necessary'-like pairings in the Briggs translation. Also, Briggs has a particularly good introduction.

Without wishing to criticize too harshly the Mitchell translation, my advice is to steer clear of it. This is because the approximate rhyming, whilst good in places (e.g. 'service/impervious') falls down too often (e.g. 'live/love').

I should also avoid the Charles Johnston translation (despite the fact that Vikram Seth thinks highly of it). This is because he makes too frequent recourse to feminine rhymes ending in -tion, which becomes monotonous, and to present participle rhymes, which has the same unfortunate effect.

If, after reading Eugene Onegin in either the Falen or the Briggs translation or both, you wish to read a contemporary Onegin stanza novel, I recommend Vikram Seth's 'The Golden Gate' (published 1986) and Brad Walker's 'Adam and Rosamond' (published 2019). The former is far better known; however, the latter, it seems to me, is more accomplished.

He always has colorful characters and he has traveled the land he writes about.
And lets face it He has had John Wayne in a couple of movies based on his books. Not to forget Sam Elliot and Tom Selleck

Child's Play: The Berenstain Baby Boom, 1946-1964
Child's Play: The Berenstain Baby Boom, 1946-1964
Stan and Jan Berenstain, husband and wife, are both known as the creators of the wildly successful Berenstain Bears series of children's books. However, I first knew them as the creators of a series of clever and insightful cartoons they created from the 1940s through the 1960s as both cartoon features in magazines like the Saturday Evening Post and McCall's and in separately published books about the foibles of childhood and domestic American life.

I first learned about the Berenstains when I was a 10 year old crazy about dinosaurs and some neighbors gave me a copy of one of the Berenstain's "It's All in the Family" features from McCall's which was about a little boy who was crazy about dinosaurs! They caught me and my hobby (and its effects on the other members of my family) to a T!

Even at that age, I became a fan and began collecting what Berenstain cartoons and books I could find. I particularly liked the cartoons because while they were always extremely funny, they were also totally realistic, with no exaggeration for comic effect like you would get in other domestic cartoons like "Hi and Lois," "Blondie" or "Zits." They were doing what Lynn Johnston does now with "For Better or For Worse" long before she did.

Unfortunately, the Berenstain's success with their "Bears" seemed to put an end to their creation of cartoons for adults. When I became an adult, I was delighted when the internet came along and I was able to find copies of their early books that I had missed.

Now I am delighted to find that one of their children has produced a retrospective collection of their early work. Any fan of theirs ought to get a copy.

I have to admit I haven't gotten mine yet, but I have leafed through it at a bookstore and my main complaint is this--not enough! A book like this ought to be virtually nothing but wall-to-wall Berenstain cartoons with as little commentary as possible. However, I observe that this volume shorts the reader in this respect. There is an awful lot of dead space in the volume. For example, often a single cartoon, which would have originally been one of a half dozen set in an issue of McCalls, is presented as the only thing on a single page surrounded by nothing by blank space. Even keeping the cartoon the same size, another three cartoons could have easily shared the same page with it.

So, please, Mr. Berenstain--give us more! Another volume with nothing but cartoons in it, maybe complete runs of all the Berenstain cartoons from each of the magazines in which they appeared. Or maybe omnibus volumes containing several of their short humorous books like MR. DIRTY & MRS. CLEAN or FLIPSVILLE/SQUARESVILLE.

Please!

新・平家物語 (7) (六興版吉川英治代表作品)
この巻は、後鳥羽上皇を幽居させ、頼盛を処罰した(と言っても謹慎程度)1179年から始まる。

そして治承4年(1180年)、安徳天皇即位。以仁王、源頼政が平家に反旗を翻すが宇治で敗死。
舞台は頼朝のいる東へと移る。以仁王は死ぬ前に令旨を発していた。それを受け取った頼朝が遂に行動を起こす。

著書が描く、頼朝はかなり冷淡である。人を疑うところがあり、政子もその背後の北条家がいるからこそ口説いたような書き方である。
『どんな身近な者にでも、心はゆるせない、信じきれない、という冷たい処世観を、ほとんど、人生の鉄則みたいに持っていた』とか、
『かれが人を観る眼はかならずその細くて冷たい心配の網を通っていた』とか。

また、北条義時の描きかたもまた冷淡である。
『鉄のごとく緊密な思慮と容易に熱しない理理智で構成されている若さ』『自我と打算こそかれの信条』とか。

これに比べると、清盛の方が余程人間味溢るる好熱漢として描いている。

An impressive debut novel first published in 1950. Catherine Cookson was a natural storyteller and the characters she created feel very authentic in the storyline and I thoroughly enjoyed the book. She writes about ordinary working class people living in the North industrial area of Jarrow and Shields and it gives a good account of British working class life around World War 1 period.
Family Affair (A Nero Wolfe Mystery Book 46)
Family Affair (A Nero Wolfe Mystery Book 46)
I have read a lot of mysteries in my 56 years, and not ONCE have I ever guessed right whodunit. This book was particularly annoying because Archie understands who did it, and for at least a chapter keeps telling "you" (the reader) that we probably guessed it a while back, but he didn't, because he was living through it. I didn't get it even when they spelled it out in Saul's apartment. Didn't really understand what was going on until they found the second little bomb. So in that respect I found it particularly unsatisfying.

Plus a character that I really liked (more than I liked Archie or Wolfe) died in this book, so that was annoying.

I found the prose to be a bit sloppy in this one, also. There are times when multiple men are in a room, or multiple men are under discussion, and either Archie (if narrating) or someone speaking refers to "him," and sometimes a few different "hims" are being discussed in the same discussion without clarifying which man it refers to. This is particularly bad in a scene where Lily is speaking to Archie about "him" (clearly referring to Wolfe) and then Archie makes a comment and Lily says, "Stop that! I can't stand him!" and their subsequent discussion. I stopped reading and tried to puzzle this out for a good ten minutes before realizing that Archie's comment was probably some famous Nixon phrase. Then if you go back and say "Wolfe" for the first "him" and "Nixon" for the second, it does make sense.

Another place where this is bad: after Archie figures out who the perp is, he's combing through a room for clues and Saul Panzer shows up, and Saul's commentary is all about how "he" thought Archie would "kill him." I'm still not sure whether this means WOLFE thought Archie would kill the perp, or the perp thought it. It's just sloppy writing, especially, as I say, for a reader who had no clue what was going on. I didn't understand what was happening until the powwow, when Archie and Saul tell Fred who did it, and he says he knew. I don't really think any reader could have guessed this from what had preceded in the book.

Anyway, I'm glad I reached the end of the series. Now back to Decius Metellus for something more lighthearted and understandable.
Consolation: A Novel
Consolation: A Novel
My mother recommended this novel to me not long before she died, so it will have a bittersweet memory to it as long as I live. Neither she nor I have ever been to the mighty city it illuminates so gravely, Toronto, but maybe that fact added to the childlike wonder and mystery with which poet Michael Redhill has composed his story. There is something Oz like, something Byzantian, to the life history of any great city, and Redhill piles this sense on thick, at the same exact time as his narrative becomes literally a place of deconstruction. This leads to a peculiar sense of being given something wonderful, and of losing something equivalent, as the novel's plot seesaws back and forth between the present day and the world of early Ontario, back in the 1850s when a hardy band of winterized pioneers were making a mini-England out of a cursed and chilblained landscape. Not to mention that it was the early days of photography, an infant art that, in recent years, has seen a huge market constructed around it, so that everyday photographs, not only "art" photography, of a certain era has been widly prized behind its makers' wildest dreams.

On top of which, CONSOLATION has the rich characters and the exotic spectrum of histories churning that animated Pasternak's DOCTOR ZHIVAGO or indeed Tolstoy's ANNA KARENINA. If i turn to Russian models to get at my experience of living through CONSOLATION, maybe it is because Redhill's novel has a moral authority that haunts the reader long after he or she has finished the very last page. Up until then we have been anxiously awaiting the results of a mystery--so the photos exist, the photos that researcher David Hollis staked his professional reputation on? A ring of photos that, laid end to end, would represent the old city of Toronto, circa 1850, like the mirrors on the edge of a revolving music box? Marianne, his widow, thinks she has it figured out, and she's waiting grimly as one of those mariners wives of the 19th century, stalking her widow's walk from her hotel room overlooking the construction of a new civic area. She's a fascinating character, but from one perspective more than a little mad. In this she is a true daughter of Canada, as we see from the grand, operatic switch to the daily life of Jem Hallam, the man who might have taken the photos.

Hallam is a brilliantly drawn character, vulnerable, talented, generous, superstitious, given to strange bouts of obsession and drawn to all the "wrong" elements in life. He is the exemplar of the early settlers of Canada, the men and women whom fate drew together to form a city. His relationship with the master photographer under whom he serves as apprentice, and with the master's assistant, the beautiful Claudia, serve as wheels to propel his story closer and closer to what seems like an inevitable heartbreak. I was just about four fifths through with the story when I realized where I had heard the name of the author, Michael Redhill, before. He is one of the editors of BRICK magazine in Canada, and I had had some e-mail dealings with him about fifteen months ago. Why did he not mention he had CONSOLATION coming up around the corner? You know how US authors don't miss a trick, and they'll turn their e-mail "signatures" into living, Vegas, adverts for their novels! I thought of CONSOLATION also while looking at Edweard Muybridge's panoramic photos of San Francisco (1877-1878), of course a far later epoch of photography than the one Redhill handles. I won't spoil the ending for you but be prepared, you're in for one of those grand, satisfying finales.
Pushing Daisies: Season 1 [Blu-ray]
Pushing Daisies: Season 1 [Blu-ray]
I am a retired Hollywood sound editor—I did M*A*S*H for 6 years—so I know quality television. PUSHING DAISIES blew me away from from the first 12 minutes. It was feature-film quality all the way around. Those first 12 minutes set the tone for the whole show—superb cast, excellent script, laugh-out-loud funny, pathos, cinematography, art direction, editing, visual effects, even stop-frame animation! As I kept watching I was thinking, “there’s no way they can keep this quality going on a weekly basis”—but they did. The clever (and at time tongue-twisting) dialogue. The sets—the carpets match the drapes—AND the bedspreads!—and the Technicolor brilliance of the color!—the almost non-stop music which adds enormously to the charm, and of course the beautiful chaste romance in the middle of a very black comedy! There are so many excellent details that are only revealed on repeated viewings—why are there bees? Why are there circles everywhere? Why are the double names—The Darling Mermaid Darlings, Charles Charles, Travel Boutique Boutique Travel? The odd mix of cars, from a Toyota Prius to a 1940’s sedan on the same street? A key character “who is the only detective named after a poet and a fish.” And I love the coroner.....who seldom says more than “Hmmmmmmmm.....” There are so many delights in this show that you can watch it over and over and over.

Plus, speaking as a filmmaker/editor, it’s the ONLY TIME I’ve EVER seen a key plot point and a key joke being a CAMERA MOVEMENT! I just about fell out of my chair on that one!

Everything about this show is truly top drawer, and it was like getting to watch a screwball comedy each week with delightfully odd characters in a universe that, as one reviewer said, “is a Technicolor world at right angles to our own.”

Really frustrated. The picture posted is not the item i received. At first I noticed when it shipped that the picture on my shipping status didn’t match the item i purchased but I hoped it was an error. However when my package arrived, It was evident that they are using the wrong picture in the listing itself. I’m returning it because it’s not at all what I wanted.
Half-Blood Blues: A Novel
Half-Blood Blues: A Novel
It is such a terrible time. It is war time in Germany, Poland and Paris. It is a time when one man ruled as dictator. It is his, Hitler's, decision to destroy certain groups of people. In "Half-Blood Blues" by Esi Edugyan, a German American band is the focus. We meet guys who love Jazz along with their lady friend, Delilah. There are many hardships. Their race becomes a thing of danger. One in the group, Chip, is German and Black. Sid is Black, etc. All of a sudden ethnicity becomes an intricate thing of beauty, and it is realized race mixtures are as different as cake batters. If you are open to racial harmony, you will see the novel in one way. If not, you will see it in another way. It is your call, your decision.

Within the pages, there is the one and only Louis Armstrong. Ultimately, he will leave Europe and go back to America because of the fast movement of troops throughout Europe. However, he does not leave before trying to make a disc or record with the group. Louis Armstrong becomes more than just a famous face and name. He becomes a man born with a special talent to hear who can play an instrument and who is off and going down another path where the group does not want or need to go. Louis Armstrong's special love for one race of people is unforgettable. Their kindness is always remembered by him. To keep them ever in his mind he eats their food and wears their symbolic jewelry.

It is a wonderful Historical novel about friendship, music, romance, jealousy and unfortunately, brutality. There are men who act as gentle as a woman. One friend will not leave another friend while he is near death's door. There is also the woman, Delilah called Lilah. She finds a hiding place for the guys when it is most needed. In order to leave the country, they need specific papers. She fights to get them. Each one in the band knows she will never leave Louis Armstrong. She becomes like Ruth with Naomi. She will follow him wherever he goes.

All of these people whether they must go to a concentration camp or hear their racial name defamed or just totally disappear due to the men in boots show war time too can become a time of growth and bonds between men and women can deepen while their country is under siege. In the end, love is as powerful as water. It can overcome evil.

If I had to stay on a deserted island and needed to take only a few books, this is one I would take with me. I feel each character is layered. I only had time to peel back one layer. It is also another view of World War II. It is seen through the eyes of those who love music, in this case, Jazz. canwwrfrom1950.org/biographies/esi_edugyan
R. E. Lee: Volume Two
R. E. Lee: Volume Two
The story is well told how Douglas Southall Freeman went on to write this four volume magnum opus. Born in 1886, the son of Confederate veteran Walker Burford Freeman, young Douglas grew up in the sunny remembrances of Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia. He received his Ph.D in history at the tender age of 22 and earned an early reputation as a Confederae scholar with Calendar of Confederate Papers. Then followed Lee's Dispatches, which he edited. He wrote an introduction to Lee's Dispatches that was so brilliant, Scribner's signed him on to write a biography of Lee. Freeman believed he could complete the job in two years.
20 years later, he was finished. In that time, America fought in a world war, women won the right to vote, and the original editor who signed Freeman on died and left the legendary Maxwell Perkins in charge.
All through it, Freeman labored on the biography like a demon. He discovered early on that most of the major sources were either never consulted or only skimmed over. He searched far and wide. He carried on a schedule that would have killed a lesser man. He awoke at 2:30 every morning, put a full day in at the Richmond Newspaper where he was an editor at, delivered two radio addresses each day, then back home to work on the biography.
After twenty years and four massive volumes, he was done. Unanimous praise was heaped on his book and rightly so. It was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in biography in 1935. It was and still remains the most thorough biography of Lee ever done and will probably never be surpassed.
Readers looking for a book that will take R. E. Lee to task will be disappointed. Freeman is an unabashed admirer of Lee. Longstreet admirers will find Freeman's highly critical remarks of him in volume 3 during the Gettysburg Campaign aggravating. Freeman's Lee is a great man. Plus, why spend 20 years of your life reading and writing about a man you loathe?
I never believed Lee was the saint certain Confederate veterans painted him to be. He was a human being and he had his share of flaws. But he was a good man who did what he thought was right and a great general. Freeman's research is awesome and his writing style (which Shelby Foote once described as a sort of "jog trot prose") while dated in some aspects (Freeman loves to use "whither" and "tither" whereas "where" and "there" would have been better), and the Freeman's overly critical treatment of Longstreet not withstanding, it is still an awesome book. Lee's campaigns are exhaustively detailed, and the maps are profuse and always keep the reader informed as to what the Army of Northern Virginia was doing at any given time.
I would strongly recommend readers use Ezra Warner's "Generals in Gray" in conjunction with this work. I did and when Freeman parades the various personalities of the Army of Northern Virgina in front of the reader, the names can be confusing. Warner's book will give you illustrations of the men of Lee's command, and you will glad you got it. The book will come alive which is the purpose of all biographies.
Lastly, Thomas Connelly's "The Marble Man" will give the reader a good counterbalance to Freeman. Still even Connelly admitted to someone once that "R. E. Lee" was still "the greatest biography ever written." I have to agree. At four volumes, I didn't want to stop. Give Freeman a chance, you'll be glad you did.
One last note. You might also wish to start with "Lee" a one volume abridgement. Freeman's understudy, Richard Harwell did a painstaking abridgement and it is a wonderful one volume work. Of course, the superb maps that went with the 4 volume set are gone and replaced by more general maps, still it's a good bet in case 4 volumes are too daunting.
Stephen Dodson Ramseur: Lee's Gallant General
Stephen Dodson Ramseur: Lee's Gallant General
Stephen Dodson Ramseur: Lee's Gallant General, by Gary Gallagher, is the most encompassing and complete biography on one of the South’s most competent generals. However, most notably, the book showcases that men like Stephen D. Ramseur were young and ambitious, and were often willing to expose themselves to danger to win acclaim and praise. Like many Civil War officers Ramseur ascended the ranks quickly by way of attrition and skill alike, both of which are showcased in grand design in this particular work. I am fairly positive that there is not another book that will offer the in-depth look at Ramseur’s life—both personal and militarily speaking, and it’s all delivered in Gallagher’s traditional free-flowing and easy to read style of writing.

Gallagher’s book on Stephen Dodson Ramseur begins with the general’s birth in Lincolnton, North Carolina, in 1837, and runs all the way through Ramseur’s death at Cedar Creek in 1864. The book provides a detailed look at Ramseur’s adolescence and pre-war education at Davidson University in North Carolina, but quickly shows that the man was already entertaining thoughts about a military career at a young age. Gallagher then covers Ramseur’s career at West Point and his time in the “old army,” while explaining a burgeoning aggressive streak that would serve the general well in the coming years.

When the young Confederacy was being formed, but before North Carolina seceded from the Union, Ramseur offered his services to the cause and was commissioned an officer of artillery. Soon, however, the need for experienced infantry officers outweighed the need for artillerists and Ramseur was given command of the 3rd regiment of North Carolina infantry. Ramseur would go on to compile a fairly solid record as a brigadier and then major general in the Army of Northern Virginia, but his time in command was not without its downsides. Several times, and probably most specifically at Gettysburg, Ramseur’s leadership and ability came into question by scholars. Though Ramseur launched the final assault that broke the Union back at Oak Ridge and Hill, many accuse Ramseur of being too lackadaisical in the subsequent parts of the battle. I feel as though Gallagher’s book acquits the general well, and fairly objectively, but it does show that Ramseur was not perfect in any way.

The book then winds its way through the following campaigns of the Army of Northern Virginia and its attempts to win southern independence, and quite nicely incorporates personal letters and accounts of Ramseur in conveying this story. Ramseur was then commissioned a major general the day after his twenty-seventh birthday, becoming the youngest West Pointer to achieve that rank in the Confederate army. He displayed charisma and intrepidity on fields like Spotsylvania (his shining achievement in my own opinion) and Cedar Creek, and showed amazing skill as a divisional leader until his death in the 1864 Shenandoah Valley campaign. This loss, again, deprived Robert E. Lee of another qualified and distinguished military leader late in the war. It was through losses such as Ramseur that hopes of a Confederate victory were dashed in late 1864.

I have always been a Stephen D. Ramseur fan and felt that he has often been overlooked for his abilities and contributions to the South during the Civil War. While already a fan of the general and his bravery, Gary Gallagher’s book made me an even bigger admirer of Ramseur. I recommend the work highly for all fans of the Civil War, but reading the letters that Ramseur wrote to his wife and friends brought a very human element to a conflict that I believe is so often forgotten in Civil War writings. Overall just a great read and interesting addition to any Civil War fan’s collection.

It is much faster than my old Lg and the battery life is great but the option for not using locks was kind of hard to find. Going to Help in settings is very useful for that. The side buttons for on/off and volume are rather stiff to use. And you cannot just double tap the screen to turn it on and off. Have to press the side on/off button once. Updated Review: Well I've pretty much made friends with this phone. I don't really mind the different turn on/off feature that much. And we got some silicone cases for it that you just pop on. They have these awesome raised buttons that go over the phones ones that make it Much easier to turn on and off and adjust the volume.
Be a Changemaker: How to Start Something That Matters
Be a Changemaker: How to Start Something That Matters
This book provides 18 chapters that profile how young people became change makers and made a difference. There are dozens of very practical strategies in this book that will be useful to individuals of any age whether you want to make positive change happen or not. What follows are two examples.

In the chapter titled Pairing Up for Perfect Partnerships, the mind mapping approach is described. It is a way to "organize your brainstorming and associate related ideas together." This technique is a powerful way to engage your creativity and then organize the ideas you have come up with in a way that increases the likelihood that you will move forward effectively. Another chapter deals with how to identify the difference you want to make. The exercise that you are taken through begins with identifying your passion, then your skills and ends with what needs to be done. Very logical, very helpful. Other topics that are covered are how to build your dream team, how to sell, how to work with the media and many more.

This valuable book ends with a resource section that provides website information for most of the chapters, additional resources by and for youth, and general business tips. Although the book tells stories about the success of young people, you do not have to be a young person to benefit from it since it touches on multiple topics about organizing an effort of personal interest, no matter what your age.

I’m only giving this three stars because I experience an intermittent problem while charging. During the night, sometimes my phone will start going back and forth with the charging. One minute it will say it’s charging and the next minute it will go off and then back in again. There have been times when my phone doesn’t charge at all. Not sure why it fluctuates, but I double checked to make sure that it’s seated properly. It’s been hit or miss at times. The AirPod case charging design doesn’t allow for a case so you have to either remove the case every time or in my case, I was able to cut out the bottom portion of the case so it can sit all the way down onto the port. Otherwise, it just isn’t long enough to make proper contact. Also, the breathing light feature while cool look at, is absolutely unnecessary. It’s too bright during the night when you’re trying to get some shuteye. You can turn it off but you have to remember to do so every time you put your devices on it. It’s a cool design overall but just wished it was more reliable.

Michael Kors Jet Set - Bolso bandolera de viaje grande
Love this bag! So I am one of those who only buys MK! I just love the quality and price range! I normally buy from Macy’s, but thought I would give this a try because it was a great deal! I love the fact that it is a crossbody. I didn’t expect it to be as large as it is as it is quite a bit longer than expected(I’m 5’3 for reference), but after putting all of my items into it, it works perfectly! I buy enough of these bags to know counterfeit and this is real! Keeping in mind this is an older style so it does not have the additional MK logos as newer versions. Just touching the bag you can tell the quality! If you are hesitant try it because it won’t disappoint. I read some of the bad reviews and with all products bought on Amazon not everyone has a great experience but you won’t know unless you try it yourself. Happy camper over here!
The Holy Bible: Containing the Old and New Testaments - King James Version
The Holy Bible: Containing the Old and New Testaments - King James Version
I was looking for an inexpensive New King James Version to have on my kindle, but if you look closely (as I found when it downloaded) it is just the standard King James Version, despite the misleading title on Amazon.

So although it didn't cost much, it was not what I wanted and there does not seem to be a means to return it as not as described.

Nothing against the King James Version, but not what I needed for the application I had in mind.

Poor description by Amazon. Hence 1 star for Amazon, not the item itself.

Update: Amazon seem to have amended the item description now the King James Version and not New King James Version as it was previously. So they do listen!

Nouvelle Legende Faux Fur Sheepskin Premium Rug Quattro (43 in. X 73 in.) Tan
This was a great purchase! I have this in the bedroom in front of the dog beds at night and on top of the dog trundle bed during the day for decoration. The pets love it and I like the way it feels underfoot. I have been more than pleased with the quality of this rug/throw. I wash it every week and it still looks new, hasn't shed or matted down, and does not collect dirt in the fur like others that I've owned and had to toss. I wash it on cold, hang to dry, and when fully dry I fluff a few minutes in the dryer on low. Looks like new again. I would definitely buy more and am thinking about getting the ivory one for my bathroom.
Spigen Quartz Hybrid Designed for iPhone 12 Pro Max Case (2020) - Crystal Clear
Spigen Quartz Hybrid Designed for iPhone 12 Pro Max Case (2020) - Crystal Clear
I ordered this case along with the Casekoo Crystal Clear case designed for iPhone 12 Pro Max Case, ASIN# B08CXNS295.

Long story short, both look nearly exactly identical. However, I have to say that this Spigen brand one is lower quality.

This Spigen case is a tad more stiff in the back cover, which I think is a turn off. I prefer one that's more flexible, so it's less likely to scratch the back of the iPhone. The Spigen case has very loose side edging. It would be easy for dust and dirt to get into the case and further scratch the iPhone. I'm able to pull the sides away from the phone without much effort. The TPU material covering the power button and volume buttons is very thin; feel like I could easily puncture it. Also, the TPU material around the power cord plug in port is also very thin.

The Casekoo case is pretty much the opposite for almost everything I listed regarding the Spigen case. This case has stronger sides that are harder to pull away. The TPU material is thicker around the buttons and plug in port. Still easy to push the buttons. One difference is that the back of this Casekoo case is more flexible, but still sturdy.

Another difference I saw is that the Spigen case had a less clear look. It seemed more cloudy in some areas. The Casekoo case was crystal clear all around.

It keep getting hung if you are continuously watching one episode after another. You will need to restart everything when it is hung. There is no way you can contact support other than sending them a mail. All they respond is generic step on how to close everything and start again. There is some serious problem with hotstar on Fire tv. The contents are no doubt good but tech is mediocre to poor. I wouldn’t recommend anyone their services unless they resolve thier tech and tech support.

Apple iPhone 11 (64GB) - (Product) RED
Apple iPhone 11 (64GB) - (Product) RED
The iPhone design is good and the camera quality is awesome. You can also take pictures in wide angles and the image quality is awesome.

Phone got delivered at 9am on 28th September (I pre-order it on 27th September at 3am in the morning), I got my phone before the delivery date with nice and secured packaging.

The overall look of the phone is premium and face unlocking is fast. I grabbed this phone with HDFC 6K Instant Discount Offer at Just 64K (128 GB Variant).

Cons:

1. The phone is great but if you use "in the box" accessories like "EarPods with Lighting Connector", then you might feel a little pain in your ears.

2. The phone comes with 5W charger which charge your phone slowly. I recommend you to prefer using 18W charger.

Well, I've never tried the iPhone before and I'm using this for the first time (Yes, I'm already using other apple products like MacBook Air & Pro).

But the product is great and I'm just lovin it.

Loads Windows 10 (s-mode) quickly , about 25 seconds. Set screen brightness at 75% and tilt slightly back a little further than normal to correct washed out appearance. Battery life is running at about 7 hrs. with intermittent use. I did shut down all unnecessary apps from running in the background in the settings. I'm not a fan of Windows 10 s-mode which limits the user to apps from the Microsoft Store. You can switch to win. 10 home for free which does not require this limitation, however I have a 250 gb ssd in my unit so I have not switched and I'm trying to work with the S-mode, I may switch sometime in the future. I do recommend this laptop for general use around the home, my only complaint is that the graphics could be better., Ok I used this laptop for about 2 more weeks and I would add that I have switched it out of the Windows 10 s-mode without any problems. There was no significant issue or change to the amount of used space on the 250 gb hard drive and it is operating normally in the Win 10 standard (home) mode which is a free switch so it will now accept apps from outside the windows store.

Me ha gustado mucho, tengo la certeza que funciona porque desde que lo tomo tengo mucha más apetencia por beber agua y desde luego voy al baño mucho más. Debo estar drenando estupendamente, llevo tomándolo casi 1 semana y me noto un poco menos hinchada. Cuando termine el bote a ver qué resultado final obtengo, pero contenta porque además 1 día que se me olvidó y es verdad que bebí bastante menos y casi no fui al baño. Así que su efecto hace.
