CRUSH: Writers Reflect on Love, Longing and the...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A star-studded collection of essays from acclaimed and best-selling authors and celebrities that illuminates the lasting power of desire and longing and celebrates our initiation into the euphoria, pain, and mystery that is our first celebrity crush. You never forget your first crush.... CRUSH brings together stories of heartbreak, humiliation, and hilarity from a roster of popular luminaries, including James Franco, Carrie Fisher, Stephen King, Roxane Gay, Jodi Picoult, Emily Gould, and Hanna Rosin, who share intimate memories of that first intense taste of love. Here are funny, whimsical, sometimes cringeworthy tales of falling head over heels for River Phoenix, Mary Tyler Moore, Howard Cosell, Jared Leto, and a host of other pop culture icons. A few contributors channeled their devotion into obsessively writing embarrassing fan letters. Some taped pics in school lockers. Others decorated their bedroom walls with posters. For tweenaged Karin Tanabe, it was discovering bad boy Andy Garcia playing the gun-loving mobster Vincent Corleone in The Godfather III. Barbara Graham unsuccessfully staked out an apartment on Park Avenue for a glimpse of her blue-eyed soul mate, Paul Newman. There was only one puppy for six-year-old Jodi Picoult - Donny Osmond - while Jamie Brisick's preteen addiction was Speed Racer. Swoon-worthy and unforgettable, the essays in CRUSH will leave you laughing, make you cry, and keep you enthralled - just like your first celebrity crush. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kaleo Griffith, Lynde Houck. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/harp/005082/bk_harp_005082_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Seriously, why do guys on dating apps think I want a picture of what's in their pants? I could open an art gallery with the collection I've got. Zoe really doesn't want to die alone and surrounded by cats. But it's not looking good: she's had sex precisely twice in the last year, and her feline friend isn't the kind of male company she wants in bed… Her top dating disasters include: The guy who kissed her hand, took out a violin and serenaded her in public.The guy who force-fed her oysters (she can confirm that they're not an aphrodisiac).The guy who was so hungover he turned up with his t-shirt on inside out, sweating sambuca.The guy who brought his actual kid on a dinner date.And don't even get her started on the dick pics, or how on earth you're supposed to know whether a total stranger is an axe murderer or not. She's ready to give up on the search for love, until her friend has an idea. Robbie lives by his horoscope, and he's sure she's got this dating stuff all wrong. He dares her to work her way through the zodiac until she finds The One. Usually Zoe would laugh at such a suggestion, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Could love be written in the stars? Or is she destined to end up alone, eating take-out in bed and watching endless re-runs of Friends? A feel-good, fresh and fabulous page-turner for anyone who has torn their hair out over their love life, drunk their weight in wine to survive an awful date, or stared at their phone, willing it to ring. Fans of rom-coms by Sophie Kinsella and Lindsey Kelk and TV shows like Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Jane the Virgin will absolutely love this laugh-out-loud tale. Readers totally love Sophie Ranald:'Absolutely brilliant!... After months of struggling to find another author I love as much as I love Sophie Kinsella I have found her!… I devoured this book in a few hours because it was impossible to put down… Packed full of laughs… Had me laughing all the way through.' Goodreads Reviewer, ¿¿¿¿¿ 'You know it's a good book when you want to be friends with the main character and I want to be BEST friends with this one!!… Such a beautiful and heartwarming story that had me laughing, and sometimes crying! I just adored this book!!' Goodreads Reviewer, ¿¿¿¿¿ 'Totally brilliant!… Funny and heartwarming… I read it over 2 nights during lockdown and loved every page of it…

Sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) is an ancient oil crop that belongs to the family Pedaliaceae. Ten Simple Sequence Repeats (SSRs) markers were used to study patterns of genetic variation within and among 50 sesame populations representing the existing Ethiopian collections. The Polymorphism Information Contents (PICs) of the markers ranged from 0.393 to 0.820.The established SSR markers will be very useful for further diversity analyses among a large landrace collection of Ethiopian sesame and in the establishment of a core collection. Moreover, existence of great genetic variability between the landraces is a good starting point of sesame crop improvement programs in Ethiopia.

99 Nights with The 99 Percent (2016 Reissue)
37,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

ORIGINAL MARCH 2012 ANNOUNCEMENT: Occupy Wall Street was the biggest news story of 2011. Among those who followed the movement like a storm chaser, Boston Phoenix Staff Writer Chris Faraone is one of the few who blogged about daily Occupy minutiae, but also stepped back to investigate and analyze the protest, and deliver weekly features. Starting in September, Faraone published a series of deep Occupy portraits, traveling to more than a dozen cities from Boston to Seattle. His work illustrates day-to-day Occupy operations, as well the characters who make the movement tick. In the process, he also landed nationwide exclusives, like a scoop on an underground legion of cops who support Occupy. 99 Nights with the 99 Percent is a collection of Faraone's published posts and articles on Occupy, streamlined into a sleek 224-page edition that also packs unpublished pieces and a number of bonus features. In addition to pics and illustrations, a series of haikus run throughout the book, taking readers through a timeline of the first 100 days of the movement. There are other books on Occupy, and by this time next year there will be countless tomes, apps, Occu-mentaries, and oral histories to choose from. But even then, 99 Nights will remain in a class of its own, as Faraone's story-and the way he tells it, packed with humor and emotion-is wholly unique. FROM THE NEW FOREWORD: With the fifth anniversary of Occupy Wall Street and its franchises all across the country upon us, it's interesting to consider that both widespread agitation and mass grassroots momentum come in waves-from the anti-nuclear proliferation front in the 1980s to the emerging post-Bernie for President movement today. These magic moments are all worth extensive study, because while the faux-populists who cheered on the extinction of Occupy like to pitch some version or another of the same question-What ever happened to those losers?-but aren't interested in waiting for responses, the actual answer is omnipresent.

Tourism in Pacific Islands
50,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Pacific Island Countries have been shown to be especially vulnerable to such external influences as natural disasters, political unrest and downturns in the global economy and their tourism industries have been notably affected. In particular, they typically have a narrow resource base and a fragile and often vulnerable natural environment. While there is some research on islands and small states, there is a dearth of information on the South Pacific and very little research is being undertaken in the region compared to other geographical regions in the world. This volume brings together current work in Pacific Island tourism. In this collection, three main themes arise: Images of the South Pacific; Socio-economic Impacts of Tourism; and Pacific Island Countries and the Outside World. The first focus is on the question of image, namely, stereotypes of a destination held by tourists and potential tourists, the extent to which residents, for their part, really welcome visitors, and the role tourism might play in changing pre-established images. The second theme is tourism's impacts, notably the economic and socio-cultural effects of international tourism's intrusion in the region which, though often hotly debated, have attracted relatively little empirical research. The third focus is on the challenges of how PICs articulate with their external geo-political and physical environment. These involve existing relations with formal colonial centres, geographical isolation, the need for greater air access to the outside world and for more tourists, and the continuing threat to several PICs of global warming, which increased air travel will inevitably exacerbate. This text will be of interest to tourism students, researchers and academics in the fields of tourism, development studies and cultural studies.
