Faking Death

Canadian Art Photography and the Canadian Imagination

Author: Penny Cousineau-Levine

In "Faking Death" Penny Cousineau-Levine examines the work of over 120 Canadian photographers, revealing important aspects of Canadian identity and imagination. Contrasting Canadian photography with American and European traditions, she shows that Canadian photographers are often preoccupied with a place that is "elsewhere," a doubling and duality that also occurs in Canadian literature, film, and political life. Subverting the documentary tradition and other stylistic idioms for their own distinctive ends, Canadian photographers exhibit an ambivalent preoccupation with death and dying, bondage, and entrapment. Cousineau-Levine argues that this is characteristically a "faked" death that expresses a collective Canadian wish for a symbolic passage to national maturity.

Es ist unsere Unvollkommenheit, die uns mit uns selbst und anderen verbindet und das Leben vollkommen macht.

This is the personal story of the obstacles she surmounted and the successes she encountered. This book also tells the unconventional love story of Harriet Rossetto and her husband, Rabbi Mark Borovitz.

Practical Grace

How to Find God in the Everyday

Page: N.A

Robert Hudnut combines depth, grace, and practical faith to bring us one of the most moving devotionals of the decade. Using scripture as a starting point, Hudnut creates engaging readings that bring faith near while carefully mining biblical principles to provide readers with tools for addressing everyday problems, helping them gain insight, and live lives of practical grace. For readers of classic devotionals like Oswald Chamber’s My Utmost for His Highest, Hudnut now offers a contemporary counterpart for this generation. In an astonishing dearth of quality day-books, this reader shines with both depth and substance. Rather than the anthology devotionals or treacly clichéd 365s of the past, Hudnut brings scripture to the fore, where each scripture serves, in effect, as the topic sentence, the starting point—and the ending point—for grace to enter our lives.

Presents fresh research and powerful stories to give voice to a new generation of women driven by challenge and change Offers compelling advice on how to make wandering a life strategy, not just a series of unplanned events Includes probing questions and thought-provoking exercises to help readers find peace in life's chaos and confusion 2011 Axiom Award Gold Medal winner in the category of Women in Business There’s a new generation of high-achieving women today—confident, ambitious, accomplished, driven. And yet, as master coach Marcia Reynolds discovered, many of them are also anxious, discontented, and frustrated. They’re constantly questioning their purpose, juggling multiple roles, and reevaluating their goals. As a result they’re restless—they move from job to job, from challenge to challenge, almost on impulse. They’re wander women. Existing personal growth books, so focused on empowerment and encouragement, can’t help these women. They don’t need to find their voice—they know how to roar. They don’t expect balance in their lives—but they long to find peace in the chaos. They aren’t necessarily focused on gaining a seat in the boardroom—they want projects that mean something or businesses they run on their own. Reynolds helps wander women understand the roots of their restlessness and make their wandering a conscious strategy, not a reaction. Drawing on extensive research and interviews she illuminates the needs that drive their decisions and the core assumptions that lock them into rigid perfectionist patterns. She offers a wealth of exercises and practices that will enable wander women to reset their mental programming, discover new ways of finding direction, and thoughtfully choose and plan their futures, whether they climb the corporate ladder, find satisfaction below the glass ceiling, or set out on their own. For every woman plagued by frustration and self-doubt—“Will what I’ve done ever feel good enough?”—Wander Woman sets the stage to uncover the answers to life’s tough questions about meaning and purpose, significance and value, and the legacy you can leave from a life lived well.
