The King'S Lion … Bound for Home!

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-king-s-lion-bound-for-h...
Trent Jonah (T.J.) Bolesky was a silly goofball, classic prankster, and overall happy kid. From the moment of his birth until the tragic accident that took his life at age sixteen, he lived life with passion and gusto. No one knew T.J. better than his best friend and father. As he shares the true heartwarming story of his sons journey through life, his father provides a glimpse into T.J.s lively spirit as he chronicles his antics that included teaching himself to growl like the little lion cub in the movie, The Lion King, at just six months, allegedly riding a notorious outlaw rooster like a horse, puffing cigars with his Uncle Andy, and barraging his family with mischievous pranks as a teenager. While commemorating T.J.s short yet joyous life with entertaining anecdotes and insight into his sons earth-shattering premonition, his father illustrates that his son, who shined a bright light until the day he died, was truly one of Gods angels and a kings lion bound for home. In this true story, a father celebrates the life of his son through joyous and poignant remembrances that serve as a gentle reminder to never take life for granted and always have faith in Gods plan.

Bound to be His

Opposites attract…Pro Pitcher Matt Archer is untouchable. Even after an injury threatened to end his career forever, he manages to make everyone smile and laugh-everyone, that is, except his sister's no-nonsense best friend who doesn't have the time or patience for his shenanigans…or his playboy tendencies. When his sister's wedding forces them to work together, though, neither Matt nor Shay anticipates the potentially catastrophic consequences of their chemistry. Shay Meyers didn't sign on for this. Yes, she agreed to be Andy's maid of honor, but she never agreed to be Matt's keeper, too. Still, the more time she spends wrangling the infamous player, the more she realizes there's more the Matt Archer than meets the eye. And the worst part? She's starting to like what she sees…

The Jelly Effect

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-jelly-effect-1...
How effective is the communication you experience every day? How often have you been bored during a presentation? Failed to win a piece of business that, deep down, you know you should have won? Had a tedious, pointless networking conversation? Countless times, no doubt. Too much information and not enough relevance is a problem that pervades almost all business communication.

The Jelly Effect teaches you simple, memorable and costless ways to win more attention and more business.

Conchies

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/conchies...
On the centenary of the Great War, we hear and read of valiant and heroic stories. There is another story, one less spoken of. The story of the people who refused to fight for their country. Today, the individuals mentioned in this book would be the focus of internet trolls. In their own day they elicited an equally vehement reaction from their communities. These were the people who refused to fight for their country, and they were known as 'Conscientious Objectors'. This book provides a remarkable testimony about the experiences of conscientious objectors and their treatment at the hands of the state. It contradicts the received view that these objectors were treated universally brutally by the army, the prison system and the government, and is bound to lead to a modification of the orthodox view. Andy Ward was given access to 300 letters that had been discovered in a local family's attic. They record a correspondence from 1916 to the end of the war between Leonard and Roland Payne, two brothers who chose to become conscientious objectors, and their friends and family. The letters follow their journey as the authorities attempted to dissuade them from their course of action, through punishment, until finally they were placed in a situation where they could be useful. Conchies is not a work of purely local history. Rather, it is a case study: local history in a national context and national history in a local context. It is also a very human story, treated with balance and thought. It will appeal to those interested in the First World War, civilian experiences of the War, British social history, the evolving nature of public opinion and the ethical and moral issues of conscience.

Supersizing the Mind

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/supersizing-the-mind-embodi...
When historian Charles Weiner found pages of Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman's notes, he saw it as a "record" of Feynman's work. Feynman himself, however, insisted that the notes were not a record but the work itself. In Supersizing the Mind, Andy Clark argues that our thinking doesn't happen only in our heads but that "certain forms of human cognizing include inextricable tangles of feedback, feed-forward and feed-around loops: loops that promiscuously criss-cross the boundaries of brain, body and world." The pen and paper of Feynman's thought are just such feedback loops, physical machinery that shape the flow of thought and enlarge the boundaries of mind. Drawing upon recent work in psychology, linguistics, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, robotics, human-computer systems, and beyond, Supersizing the Mind offers both a tour of the emerging cognitive landscape and a sustained argument in favor of a conception of mind that is extended rather than "brain-bound." The importance of this new perspective is profound. If our minds themselves can include aspects of our social and physical environments, then the kinds of social and physical environments we create can reconfigure our minds and our capacity for thought and reason.

Silent One

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/silent-one-3...
The Everi, derisively known as fairies, are a people on the edge: despised or feared by other races, poised precariously between the mundane and the magical, between the People and the Enemy. Born into slavery, orphaned like all her Everi sisters, Sarah is forced on a journey that takes her from one edge to another: from the wild lands to the cities, from the clutches of the Enemy to the safety of the convent, from a life of lowly servitude to the very highest echelons of the world she knows, where she challenges the Queen. Throughout it all she struggles with the meaning of what it is to be Everi: stubborn and proud, even in poverty, bound to the People by passion and necessity, and bound by the needs of their daughters, who the Everi cannot raise themselves. Sarah. A child and a sister, a lover and a wife, a mother and a queen. Through trials that threaten to break her body and her mind, she rises to become a leader who imagines a new kind of future for the Everi, where they are in the middle instead of on the edges, where they are respected and honored. To achieve her dream she will have to fight in every way she can, make allies out of antagonists, and defeat the Enemy that has dogged her whole life- an Enemy who threatens to destroy everything she has achieved.

'Whither regional studies?'

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/whither-regional-studies-pi...
Regional studies are at a vibrant conjuncture. 'Regions' continue to provide a conceptual and analytical focus for often overlapping concerns with economic, social, political, cultural and ecological change. In the context of increased interest in inter- and multi-disciplinary approaches, 'regions' remain an arena in which synthesis across disciplines - economics, geography, planning, politics and sociology - can take place. Yet recent work has raised fundamental questions about how we think about and research 'regions' and regional change, 'development', governance and regulation. First, emergent conceptual ideas have introduced new thinking about space, place and scale that interprets 'regions' as 'unbounded', relational spaces. This work has disturbed notions of 'regions' as bounded territories and questioned hierarchical systems of scale through more complex, multi-scalar approaches. Second, research methodology has grown in sophistication and sensitivity but remains somewhat polarised between the binaries of positivist, often quantitative, and more theoretically diverse, typically qualitative, approaches. Last, regional governance, policy and politics are wrestling with the conceptual, methodological and political complexities of new modes and geographies of governance and emergent multi-agent and multi-level institutional architectures. This book brings together important voices in regional studies to contribute to and reflect upon these current issues and debates. While we are at an early stage in beginning to think through what such conceptual, theoretical, methodological, governance, policy and political innovations and developments mean for regional studies, the magnitude and resonance of such issues underpin the vitality of research on the region. This book was published as a special issue of Regional Studies.

The Endless Battle

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-endless-battle...
Near the end of October 1941, a few hundred soldiers from New Brunswick were among the 1,975 Canadian troops who set sail from Vancouver to reinforce the British Colony of Hong Kong. Within two short months, after a hard-fought but disastrous battle against the Imperial Japanese Army, the island fell to the invaders on Christmas Day, and its defenders were ordered to surrender by the governor of Hong Kong. The survivors were taken captive. Based on the first-hand accounts of the author's father, Andrew "Ando" Flanagan, a rifleman from Jacquet River, NB, The Endless Battle explores the Battle of Hong Kong and its long aftermath, through the eyes of the soldiers. During their captivity, the POWs endured starvation, forced labour, and brutal beatings. They lived in deplorable conditions and many died from illness. But the soldiers stuck together, bound by their camaraderie, loyalty to King and Country, and collective desire to sabotage the Japanese war effort. Writing intimately and sensitively about the lingering effects of the trauma of the soldiers held in captivity, Andy Flanagan shows both the heroism of individual soldiers and the terrible costs of war.

Winter Money

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/winter-money...
The ten stories in Winter Money are set in rural Kentucky and West Virginia, in dim horse racing and river towns. The men in Andy Plattner's stories are tough and uncertain, the women independent and disappointed, but they are strong-willed and high-spirited, always believing there's a better life, just over the horizon, after the next race. The title story depicts the life of a jockey agent who has seen some bad breaks but knows in his heart he can turn things around if he can just get some "winter money" to make a fresh start in Florida. In "Chandelier," a bankrupt horse breeder risks everything again in an attempt to save a friend's farm. "Eldorado" is the story of a young horse groom convinced an old car will be good luck for him, even though it could break down over the next hill. Life at a race track is as desperately unpredictable as the next race, but the people bound to this life live only when they are taking chances. The lies they tell themselves and others run with reality to create new truths. The men and women of Winter Money live in motel rooms that rent by the week, where strangers can change the course of lives. Love and compassion come from unexpected sources, and, as a result, dreams and desired are nurtured and sometimes, against the odds, sustained.

Christian Funerals

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/christian-funerals...
Unlike weddings, funerals rarely take place after extensive planning. Often the deceased is not someone the pastor has known well, and preparations for the service of death and resurrection take place in the midst of pastoral care of the grieving, writing the funeral sermon, and the pastor's regular duties. These circumstances make it especially hard to plan an appropriate and meaningful order of worship for the funeral service. Christian Funerals will help pastors as they attend to this crucial ministry of the church. Drawing on the books of worship from a number of denominations and traditions, it provides several options for each of the elements of the funeral service, from gathering texts to opening prayers to scripture lessons to final prayers. The book is bound in a way that makes it suitable for use at church services and at the grave side.
