BOOK EXCERPT:

Real love . . . as seen on TV. A plus-size bachelorette brings a fresh look to a reality show in this delightful, razor-sharp debut. “Relatable, incredibly smart . . . an extraordinary debut.”—Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Date and The Proposal Bea Schumacher is a devastatingly stylish plus-size fashion blogger who has amazing friends, a devoted family, legions of Insta followers—and a massively broken heart. Like the rest of America, Bea indulges in her weekly obsession: the hit reality show Main Squeeze. The fantasy dates! The kiss-off rejections! The surprising amount of guys named Chad! But Bea is sick and tired of the lack of body diversity on the show. Since when is being a size zero a prerequisite for getting engaged on television? Just when Bea has sworn off dating altogether, she gets an intriguing call: Main Squeeze wants her to be its next star, surrounded by men vying for her affections. Bea agrees, on one condition—under no circumstances will she actually fall in love. She’s in this to supercharge her career, subvert harmful beauty standards, inspire women across America, and get a free hot air balloon ride. That’s it. But when the cameras start rolling, Bea realizes things are more complicated than she anticipated. She’s in a whirlwind of sumptuous couture, Internet culture wars, sexy suitors, and an opportunity (or two, or five) to find messy, real-life love in the midst of a made-for-TV fairy tale. In this joyful, wickedly observant debut, Bea has to decide whether it might just be worth trusting these men—and herself—for a chance to live happily ever after.

BOOK EXCERPT:

"A fine primer on the four gospels by a deacon and former professor of New Testament. Her spring-board is the prayer many of learned as children: 'Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John/Guard the bed I lie upon...' showing the evangelists as true guardian angels or messengers of good news." -- The Living Church The words of the child's prayer, "One to watch, one to pray, and two to keep me till the day," reminds us of the special message of each gospel. This book sketches the shape of the Gospels, the four stories of Jesus. It reveals their similarities and differences and how they relate to one another. All the evangelists have distinctive roles as messengers of the good news and guardian angels of our faith. With Mark we watch; he alerts us to the urgency of the good news. With John we pray, and from him we learn the signs of God at work in the world about us. Matthew is the teacher, who leads us forward to teach others, while Luke reveals Jesus the healer, who brings reconciliation and justice to all creation. Clear, concise, and free of technical language, this introduction to gospel "basics" includes the spiritual and devotional aspects of each gospel as well as critical study tools. It can be used for inquirer's classes, adult study groups, and prayer groups who wish the evangelists to illuminate their faith journey.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The combination of the new information and communication technologies (ICTs) and radio is opening up a range of possibilities for communication in the developing world. Broadcasters who used to have to travel for hours to find a public library to research a programme, now have instant access to the internet, whilst national, regional and global radio news agencies are making world news and alternative perspectives available to even the most remote communities. These developments are also helping to keep communities together, despite the distances imposed by migration trends. The case studies in this book demonstrate the value of converging radio and new ITCs for development and suggest that radio will have even greater significance and value in the future. The book is based on the findings of a FAO international workshop, held in February 2001.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Examines social and cultural phenomena through the lens of different television shows We all have opinions about the television shows we watch, but television criticism is about much more than simply evaluating the merits of a particular show and deeming it ‘good’ or ‘bad.’ Rather, criticism uses the close examination of a television program to explore that program’s cultural significance, creative strategies, and its place in a broader social context. How to Watch Television brings together forty original essays from today’s leading scholars on television culture, writing about the programs they care (and think) the most about. Each essay focuses on a particular television show, demonstrating one way to read the program and, through it, our media culture. The essays model how to practice media criticism in accessible language, providing critical insights through analysis—suggesting a way of looking at TV that students and interested viewers might emulate. The contributors discuss a wide range of television programs past and present, covering many formats and genres, spanning fiction and non-fiction, broadcast and cable, providing a broad representation of the programs that are likely to be covered in a media studies course. While the book primarily focuses on American television, important programs with international origins and transnational circulation are also covered. Addressing television series from the medium’s earliest days to contemporary online transformations of television, How to Watch Television is designed to engender classroom discussion among television critics of all backgrounds.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Who’s Going To Watch My Kids? is the true story of working mom Rachel Levy Lesser’s struggles to find and hold on to a nanny for her two young children. It also includes the stories of 15 other working moms and their humorous and heartfelt nanny tales. Each mother longs to employ the modern day Mary Poppins - that perfect nanny who they soon learn doesn't exist. This book explores the unique relationships that develop between working mothers (and fathers) and the nannies and the kids they care for. These relationships are more than professional yet not as intimate as familial ones (or sometimes even more so!) The working mothers in this book, Rachel included, put up with more issues from their nannies than they ever would with their employees in their offices, but in turn they also learn many lessons from their nannies and grow closer than they ever imagined. Rachel includes her own nanny rules based off of lessons learned from her experiences and those of the other mothers in the book.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This 15-page report highlights a recent surge in ethnic violence and the failure of the government of Southern Sudan and the United Nations Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) to protect civilians. In March and April 2009, armed civilians from the Lou Nuer and Murle ethnic groups in Southern Sudan's Jonglei state killed an estimated 1,000 men, women, and children, and abducted about 150 women and children in vicious attacks and counter-attacks. Government officials knew the conflict was brewing but did not take steps to prevent it or protect civilians, nor did the UN mission address the impending violence, said Human Rights Watch.--Publisher description.
