Faking Death

Canadian Art Photography and the Canadian Imagination

Author: Penny Cousineau-Levine

Category: Photography

Page: 324

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.

Missional: Impossible!

Mainline Christianity in the West is dying. Addiction to hierarchical and bureaucratic power is killing it. A management-god and a mission-god have usurped the Way of Christ. In the midst of decline the missional movement is attempting to reboot the church. Its goal is to remake a New Christian West through mission, leadership, mapping, and planning. Yet it is trapped in the language and methods of modernity. Its final solution is a polarizing vision of cultural domination by one social group, the Christians. The Way of Life and Truth has been forgotten. Christ is not a conquering King, a written Word, or an absolute Idea, but a divine Human Being. Social wholeness can only be realized through a rediscovery of Conversation, Reconciliation, and Empowerment. These reflect Christ's practices of eternal dialogue and reciprocal giving in small communities. Through this mutual Way of Life people of all faiths (and none) can discover deep within themselves Our Un/Known G-d. A gentle voice is whispering in the heart of all humanity, I am . . . the Way.

Auf ihrer Agenda: die weltweit zunehmende Fettleibigkeit. Ihre Sorge: Immer häufiger werden industriell hergestellte Lebensmittel mit ihren Unmengen an Salz, Zucker und Fett für die Gewichtsprobleme der Menschen verantwortlich gemacht. Ein Vorstandsmitglied von Kraft appelliert an das Gewissen seiner Kollegen. Doch unvermittelt ist das Treffen zu Ende ... Fünfzehn Jahre später ist nicht nur die Anzahl der Fettleibigen massiv angestiegen, immer öfter werden auch Krankheiten wie Diabetes, Bluthochdruck, Arthrose, Brust- und Darmkrebs mit unserem immensen Konsum von industriell erzeugten Nahrungsmitteln in Zusammenhang gebracht. Milliarden werden investiert, um die perfekte Mischung an Salz, Zucker und Fett zu finden, die uns süchtig macht nach immer mehr. Michael Moss öffnet uns die Augen für die skrupellosen Geschäftsmethoden der Nahrungsmittel-Multis. Alarmierend, spannend, zukunftsweisend: Sein Buch wird unseren Blick auf unsere Essgewohnheiten für immer verändern.

In einer Londoner Schule wird ein Computerspiel herumgereicht - Erebos. Als Raubkopie geht es von Hand zu Hand und wer es spielt, kommt nicht mehr davon los. Dabei sind die Spielregeln äußerst streng: Jeder hat nur eine Chance, Erebos zu spielen. Er darf mit niemandem darüber reden und muss immer allein spielen. Und - wer gegen die Spielregeln verstößt oder seine Aufgaben nicht erfüllt, fliegt raus und kann das Spiel auch nicht mehr starten. Merkwürdig ist aber, dass die Aufgaben, die Erebos stellt, nicht in der Welt von Erebos, sondern in der Wirklichkeit ausgeführt werden müssen. Die Fiktion des Spiels und die Realität verschwimmen auf irritierende Weise. Auch Nick ist süchtig nach Erebos, bis das Spiel ihm befiehlt, einen Menschen umzubringen. Natürlich führt er diesen Auftrag nicht aus und wird prompt vom Spiel ausgeschlossen. Als auch noch sein bester Freund Jamie schwer verunglückt, begreift Nick: Erebos ist weitaus mehr als nur ein harmloses Computerspiel!

Entstanden ist ein fesselnder und spannender Unterhaltungsroman, sogartig wie das beschriebene Computerspiel und dessen Fantasy-Setting, der sich mit den Gefahren der virtuellen Welten und deren Suchtpotenzial auseinandersetzt.

Practical Grace

How to Find God in the Everyday

ISBN: 1426770693

Category: Religion

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.

Many women today wonder: what will it take to get that seat atthe boardroom table? Earn that coveted promotion? Or simply havetheir voices heard? Taking the Stage provides acomprehensive, proven approach that enables women to come forwardinto the spotlight and speak up, stand out, and succeed. Based on a program from the Humphrey Group that has beendelivered to over 400,000 women worldwide, Taking the Stageshows women—no matter their age, rank, orprofession—how to communicate with courage and confidence inevery situation, from formal speeches to brief hallwayconversations. Judith Humphrey provides the inspiration andpractical advice for women to “take the stage”mentally, verbally, vocally, and physically. Women can make themost of every opportunity by understanding how best to: Speak up confidently, even when others don’t agree; Convey their accomplishments without self-doubt; Be assertive but not aggressive; Deliver clear and convincing messages; Move beyond “minimizing” language and apology; Find their own powerful and authentic voice; Achieve confident body language and a leadership presence. By applying these techniques and others to everycommunication— whether making a presentation, speaking atmeetings, conducting an elevator conversation, or sellingthemselves in job interviews—women will be recognized as theleaders they are and attain positions of influence. For women at all stages of their career, and for managers andexecutives committed to supporting and guiding women on theirleadership journeys, Taking the Stage is the practical,broad-based solution that will allow women to speak up confidently,gain respect, earn the promotions they deserve, and secure theirplaces at the boardroom table.
