Sibling rivalry has crossed many an ocean.... When Constance Wright arrives at her family's summerhouse on the Mediterranean island of Santerre for her father Ross's memorial, she hopes that boyfriend Jim, the New York investment banker on her arm, will boost her status in the family. Between her ravishing sister, Isabelle; her ageless French stepmother, Odette; and her English stepsisters, former model Lucy and famous artist Jane, there's a lot of competition for attention -- not to mention double beds. ...Now it's time to sink or swim. What she hadn't counted on is the attraction Jim develops for one of the other women in the house...and the affinity she feels for the mysterious writer who moves in next door. As liaisons shift and tension soars, Constance finds that she's not the only one in the house whose love life is in turmoil. Complicating matters is the discovery of a Swiss bank account that Ross left behind. Now, the women of this eclectic family are about to learn more than they ever wanted to know about each other, their father, and themselves.

‘The Summer of Going Topless’ reminded me to love myself a little more. Can there be anything better than that? Trails of Tails Candice Summerville is fast approaching fifty-years-old and wonders if she might be invisible. No one seems to notice her - not really. Heck, she often doesn’t notice herself, except for her monthly scrutiny in the mirror to check on her body’s steady slide towards middle age. But when her ancient, practical estate car is consigned to the scrap heap, Candice falls in love with a cute, purple convertible, and from that moment on her life begins to take on a whole new meaning. Strangers wave at her and people stop to talk, and suddenly she isn’t invisible any longer. Life seems to be looking up, especially when she meets silver fox and handy-man, Paul. There’s just one fly in the ointment, one thing that has her second-guessing herself. Is it the car that Paul sees - or is it her?

Fundamental to understanding human sexual expression is reliable and valid measurement and assessment. Many instruments have been developed to measure a myriad of sexuality-related states, traits, behaviors, and outcomes. Few are easily accessible and the information is limited concerning appropriate use and psychometric properties. In Handbook of Sexuality-Related Measures, more than 200 instruments are reproduced, accompanied by the necessary information for their use in research, as well as educational and clinical settings. Measures relating to more than 50 topics are included. Examples are abortion, aging, arousal, general and specific attitudes and behavior, contraception, dysfunctions, education, experience, gender identity, homosexuality, ideology, jealousy, knowledge, masturbation, orgasm, rape, and sexually transmitted diseases. Each chapter describes the development and appropriate use of each instrument, giving information on timing, scoring, and interpretation. Reliability and validity data are,summarized and completely referenced. Nearly all articles include the entire instrument; others provide illustrative content from the instrument and give all necessary information to obtain the instrument.

So, what are you waiting for? Let the valet take your car and step inside, let your eyes adjust to the light, and then prepare to have hem opened wide by the sights, sounds, and sensations found within the seductive realm of the modern gentleman's club.

A Guiri's Adventure

View: 748

A Guiri's Adventure: Barcelona through the eyes of an American is a shamelessly honest chronicle of Greta Paa-Kerner's experiences living in Barcelona, Spain. Spiced up with cynicism, self-deprecation and dry humor, it is a recount of the history, geography, economics, and cultural euphemisms of the region. It's an armchair adventure about an American during her first year of living abroad. With the disputed U.S. presidential elections, the terrorist attacks of September 11 and Europe's transition to the Euro monetary system, it was an eventful time to live in Europe. Every chapter in A Guiri's Adventure captures this unique period in history. Through the highs and the lows of settling into a new culture Greta learned that being a foreigner, a "Guiri" meant more than speaking with an accent. For her it also meant taking a personal journey beyond one's self-made limits and stretching beyond what was comfortable. She wants you to take that journey with her. Barcelona, home of the ancient Roman settlements, the Modernist art movement and the 1992 Olympics is a story unto itself. Famous architects like Antoni Gaudy and artists like Joan Miry have shaped this fascinating city and provide a colorful mosaic backdrop for this foreigner's adventures.

Alan's true story picks up after his parole from Trenton State Prison where he served 27 months of a 3 to 5 year sentence for possession and sale of drugs. He thought he had his drug addiction problems beaten. He felt that alcohol without drugs would provide him the relief that he needed from his anxiety and depression. He started becoming more and more reliant on alcohol as the days passed. His social anxiety was so great that he could not participate in conversations in a group context. His alcoholic life was a whirlwind of brief sexual encounters and drinking at bars in Greenwich Village. His sexual identity was non-existent. He had no sexual preference of a female over a male or vice-versa. Alan was just getting started on his academic career as a free man. He had taken his first 4 college courses in prison and was determined to earn at least a bachelor's degree. In no time at all he was consuming alcohol before every social gathering whether it was at home, at work or on the university campus. Alan appeared aloof to many acquaintances, but his quiet nature was due to his intense anxiety levels and sporadic depression. The years advance and Alan chronicles the huge impact alcoholism has on his life and his urgent attempts to work towards solutions to his inner turmoil. As his alcoholism progresses, he gets closer and closer to losing everything he's worked and strived for. His personal relationships are falling apart. His work on the job is suffering and his relationships with co-workers are becoming stressed. He needs a solution and he needs it now.

A Theory of Legal Sentences

Page: 194

View: 596

Legal statements are, according to the authors, the most basic elements of the law. Nevertheless they must be considered not only as the pieces of a puzzle, but also as the components of a dynamic and highly complex reality: the law of contemporary society. The book presents an analysis of the different types of legal statements (mandatory rules, principles, power-conferring rules, definitions, permissions, values and the rule of recognition) from a threeefold perspective, that is, considering their logical structure, their function in legal reasoning as reasons for action, and their connections with the interests and power relationships among the individuals and the social groups. The result is conceived as a first step in the building of a general theory of law designed not as an isolated discourse but as a decisive element for the dynamization of the legal culture.
