People are not disturbed by things; they are disturbed by their view of things."" Epictetus Emotional intelligence (EI) refers to the ability to perceive, control, and evaluate emotions. Some researchers suggest that emotional intelligence can be learned and strengthened, while others claim it is an inborn characteristic. EI has been defined as, ""the subset of social intelligence that involves the ability to monitor one's own and others' feelings and emotions, to discriminate among them and to use this information to guide one's thinking and actions."" ""Go Suck A Lemon"" hopes to provide readers with methods for improving emotional intelligence by offering cognitive skill building techniques, thereby helping to create a less self-defeating and more enriching experience when experiencing emotion.
The bestselling author of Blindsided, Richard M. Cohen spent three years chronicling the lives of five diverse "citizens of sickness": Denise, who suffers from ALS; Buzz, whose Christian faith helps him deal with his non-Hodgkin's lymphoma; Sarah, a determined young woman with Crohn's disease; Ben, a college student with muscular dystrophy; and Larry, whose bipolar disorder is hidden within. Differing in age and gender, race and economic status, all five are determined to live life on their own terms. In Strong at the Broken Places, Cohen shares these inspirational and revealing stories, which offer lessons for us all—–on self-determination, on courage in the face of adversity and public ignorance, on keeping hope alive. We are all strong at the broken places—stronger than we think.
"New Orleans Noir explores the dark corners of our city in eighteen stories, set both pre- and post-Katrina...In Julie Smith, Temple found a perfect editor for the New Orleans volume, for she is one who knows and loves the city and its writers and knows how to bring out the best in both...It's harrowing reading, to be sure, but it's pure page-turning pleasure, too." --Times-Picayune "New Orleans Noir is a vivid series of impressions of the city in moments that brought out either the best or worst in people. As part of the first wave of fiction to arrive in the wake of the storm, it's a thrilling read and a harbinger of what should be an interesting stream of works." --Gambit Weekly "Don't expect the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce to put its seal of approval on New Orleans Noir, because these eighteen stories describe a city where serial killers and philosophers live side by side...Yet when you've waded through these anguished pages, you can begin to understand why--as corrupt as it is, as broken as it is--so many of New Orleans's refugees still long to go home." --Mystery Scene "The excellent twelfth entry in Akashic's city-specific noir series illustrates the diversity of the chosen locale...Appropriately, Smith divides the book into pre- and post- Katrina sections, and many of the more powerful tales describe the disaster's hellish aftermath." --Publishers Weekly "Alongside San Francisco and Las Vegas, few American cities are simultaneously beloved and loathed by so many, which makes New Orleans a particularly promising and logical addition to Akashic's noir series...this is a strong and extremely entertaining collection that leaves you satisfied in a straight-up-Jameson, unfiltered-cigarette, pretty-gal-on-the-arm kind of way." --L. Magazine "New Orleans Noir digs below the surface and into the social fabric of a city that had its troubles long before Hurricane Katrina...Despite the fact that this collection is gritty, often bloody and frequently depressing, it's a fascinating portrayal of a city that has always had social troubles ignored by the rest of the country. In that it is a call to action." --Feminist Review Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original noir anthologies, launched in 2004 with Brooklyn Noir. Each story is set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the city of the book. Brand-new stories by: Ace Atkins, Laura Lippman, Patty Friedmann, Barbara Hambly, Tim McLoughlin, Olympia Vernon, David Fulmer, Jervey Tervalon, James Nolan, Kalamu ya Salaam, Maureen Tan, Thomas Adcock, Jeri Cain Rossi, Christine Wiltz, Greg Herren, Julie Smith, Eric Overmyer, and Ted O'Brien.
My name is John Dunne, first son of Alison Dunne, the first person to ‘cross’ in our family. In fact the only person to ‘cross’ in our family, that is until I, John ‘crossed’ over to the other side of this world and what a world it is, this ‘other’ side. Terrifying? Yes sometimes. Beautiful . . . yes sometimes. Beautiful terrifying and exhilarating and deadly all at the same time? Yes. Yes. Yes. We in this family are only a few of the many thousands that can cross over. Some of us however have that extra gift that allows us to go that one step further than most. I can and so can my half brother Michael Mac Coy. He is in fact only four years old and can do almost anything he sets his mind to. Of course being so young my mother Ali, his father Jason and I and our many friends have to keep a close eye on him at all times as he can disappear and reappear at will. To be totally honest that kid is a right old pain in the ass, every time one turns around he is in your face. We fight evil wherever we find it even it is within ourselves. I have met many a poor soul from this world and the other and I have stored their stories in a room somewhere at the back of my mind. Most of the time they stay there and are very scary and off putting but every now and then like one or two of the funnier ones suddenly spring to mind. Just to show you that it is not always doom and gloom but life as you well know can be quite hilarious at times. I would like to pass one of these stories on to you if I may? You may or not be interested but I have got to tell them to someone and sure it might as well be you.
My book is about helping people to be more informed about their everyday lives doing every day things. It's mostly common sense and advice. I've written about the many things that I have encountered in my life of eighty plus years. We all have good times and bad times, and we must accept them, adjust to them, and go on. There's always hope. Remember, the sun is always shining somewhere. I hope this book will help you to improve your life. Please enjoy reading it.
Published in association with Lyndhurst Books of the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. Remembering Jim Crow: African Americans Tell About Life in the Segregated South is the "viscerally powerful... compilation of firsthand accounts of the Jim Crow era" (Publisher's Weekly). Based on interviews collected by the Behind the Veil Project at Duke University's Center for Documentary Studies, this remarkable book presents for the first time the most extensive oral history ever compiled of African American life under segregation. Men and women from all walks of life tell how their most ordinary activities were subjected to profound and unrelenting racial oppression. Yet Remembering Jim Crow is also a testament to how black southerners fought back against the system--raising children, building churches and schools, running businesses, and struggling for respect in a society that denied them the most basic rights. The result is a powerful story of individual and community survival. Praise for Remembering Jim Crow "A 'landmark book.'" —Publisher's Weekly, "The Year in Books" "This is not just an oral history for the South, but for us all. It is a sobering reminder of the mistakes this nation has made, a hopeful reflection on how far we have come." —Kansas City Star
