According to researchers, the vast majority - a whopping 75-98 percent - of the illnesses that plague us today are a direct result of our thought life. What we think about truly affects us both physically and emotionally. In fact, fear alone triggers more than 1,400 known physical and chemical responses in our bodies, activating more than 30 different hormones! Today our culture is undergoing an epidemic of toxic thoughts that, left unchecked, create ideal conditions for illnesses.Supported by current scientific and medical research, Dr. Caroline Leaf gives listeners a prescription for better health and wholeness through correct thinking patterns, declaring that we are not victims of our biology. She shares with listeners the "switch" in our brains that enables us to live happier, healthier, more enjoyable lives where we achieve our goals, maintain our weight, and even become more intelligent. She shows us how to choose life, get our minds under control, and reap the benefits of a detoxed thought life.Full production copyright: Brilliance Audio, all rights reserved.

Some of the deepest questions of women's hearts are about beauty: an innate desire to decorate ourselves and our surroundings, and the struggle to feel beautiful. But these desires are often in direct conflict with values and beliefs that tell us fashion (or any form of creativity) is frivolous and vain, and may actually be a sin. Jeanette Johnson, founder of popular style blog J's Everyday Fashion, shares her personal journey and the stories of other women, examining how we can best explore our quest for beauty while still honoring our faith and personal values and being responsible consumers. Jeanette delves into topics that many women grapple with: Is fashion selfish? Is it necessary? Does it dishonor our faith? With an in-depth look at issues like healthy self-esteem, modesty, and how fashion fits into the big picture, Jeanette offers practical, thoughtful insight, guiding every woman to conquer her fashion guilt and achieve "personal style with purpose."The full copyright information can be found below:Scripture taken from the New King James Version®. © 1982 by Thomas Nelson.

In Jesus on Trial, New York Times bestselling author David Limbaugh applies his lifetime of legal experience to a unique new undertaking: making a case for the gospels as hard evidence of the life and work of Jesus Christ. Limbaugh, a practicing attorney and former professor of law, approaches the canonical gospels with the same level of scrutiny he would apply to any legal document and asks all the necessary questions about the story of Jesus told through Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. His analysis of the texts becomes profoundly personal as he reflects on his own spiritual and intellectual odyssey from determined skeptic to devout Christian. Ultimately, Limbaugh concludes that the words Christians have treasured for centuries stand up to his exhaustive enquiry - including his examination of historical and religious evidence beyond the gospels - and thereby affirms Christian faith, spirituality, and tradition.

Quotation Extraction consists of identifying quotations from a text and associating them to their authors. In this work, we present a Quotation Extraction system for Portuguese. Quotation Extraction has been previously approached using di erent techniques and for several languages. Our proposal di ers from previous work since we use Machine Learning to automatically build specialized rules instead of human-derived rules. Machine Learning models usually present stronger generalization power compared to human-derived models. In addition, we are able to easily adapt our model to other languages, needing only a list of verbs of speech for a given language. The previously proposed systems would probably need a rule set adaptation to correctly classify the quotations, which would be time consuming. We tackle the Quotation Extraction task using one model for the Entropy Guided Transformation Learning algorithm and another one for the Structured Perceptron algorithm. In order to train and evaluate the system, we have build the GloboQuotes corpus, with news extracted from the globo.com portal.
This study aims to explore how the phenomenon of "honour killing" is reported in British newspapers by looking at the different linguistic and discursive strategies used in the news coverage of two victims among Muslim immigrants in the UK. The multidisciplinary approach of Critical Discourse Analysis, in particular van Dijk's framework (1991, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2006, 2008 and 2009) provides the theoretical backdrop for the study. The description, interpretation and explanation of the linguistic and discursive mechanisms - lexical choice, implicit meanings, semantic strategies, sources and quotations - unveil the ideological constructions underlying the texts. The study also addresses questions such as whether or not the press associates "honour killings" with Islam and Muslims or with cultural tribal custom, whether or not news reports reinforce the reproduction of popular stereotypes, and whether or not they express a reinforcement of prejudice against immigrant Muslim communities. The study thus intends to assess how the British press tackles the concepts of identity and difference in the UK's growing multicultural and multifaith society.
Eisenstein's adaptation of Karl Marx's Capital (1927-1928) is a phantom in a double sense: although never realized, it has nonetheless haunted the imagination of many filmmakers, historians, and writers to the present day, most recently with Alexander Kluge's News from Ideological Antiquity: Marx - Eisenstein - Capital. Furthermore, its first public 'materialization' - a ten-page fragment of the director's work diaries - was marked by what remained absent: Eisenstein's images and working materials. Dance of Values aims to conjure the phantom of Capital once again - only this time on the basis of the full scope of Capital's archival body. This "visual instruction in the dialectical method," as Eisenstein himself called it, comprises over 500 pages of notes, drawings, press clippings, expression diagrams, plans for articles, negatives from October, theoretical reflections and extensive quotations. Dance of Values explores the internal formal necessity underlying Eisenstein's choices in Capital, arguing that its visual complexity as well as its epistemic efficacy reside precisely within the state of its material: the dance of heterogeneous themes and disparate fragments, a non-linear, provisory, and non-articulated flow.Sequences from archival materials, published here for the first time, are constructed not as mere illustrations, but as visual arguments of their own leading to a more concrete understanding of Eisenstein's stake in Capital: a visual theorization of value. A close reading of Eisenstein's archive in its formal necessity allows not only for the reconstruction of morphological elements present in Marx's theory of value but also for the theorization of a more fundamental crisis of the political-medial representation, a present that extends from its contemporary context to today. Employing an unambiguously morphological procedure, Eisenstein's montage sequences produce a kind of surplus value entirely their own: a semiotic excess, which stirs the materials and represented bodies into a dance analogous to Marx's "dance" of "petrified conditions." It is in this polymorphic and "diffuse" language - associated with the stream of consciousness of Joyce's Ulysses - that Eisenstein saw the strongest critical and affective potential for the future cinema.
Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Paderborn (Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: T. C. Boyle, language: English, abstract: 1 Introduction This paper is about the stereotypes that Asians and Americans have of each other. Therefore quotations from Boyle's book: 'East is East' are listed. Though it was not part of the presentation, you will also find the quotations on the Asians' ideas about Americans here in order to give a statement on each nation's representative's awareness on those matters. After that there is a chapter on coping with prejudices, and the terms of assimilation and acculturation are defined. Last there is an overview of our presentation explaining the different phases, their contents and aims. The transcript of the news-show is given and a short reflection on the presentation and working on this topic can be found. Before you read on, I would like to explain three terms here which are used simultaneously during this paper. Often it is not possible to distinguish between a cliché, a stereotype or a prejudice because the definitions of those terms are very similar and the choice of the right term depends on everyone's individual experiences with regard to the certain subject. Nevertheless I want to show that there are certain differences, by giving the definitions here: . Cliché: A phrase or opinion that is overused and shows a lack of original thought. . Stereotype: An image or idea of a particular type of person or thing that has become fixed through being widely held. . Prejudice: Pre-assumption, pre-conceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience. 2 Quotes: The Asians' Ideas about Americans Actually this chapter on the Asian's ideas about Americans was not part of our presentation. But when reading the book I marked all of those in order to compare the stereotypes both nations have of each other. 2.1 Words used for Americans in the Book . long nose . hakujin . butter stinker . keto (p.267) . for Saxby: big hairy boifurendo 2.2 Hiro's Grandma describing his Father p.15 ..(he always was dirty and hairy, no matter the version)... 2.3 Hiro's View of Americans- Adopted from Films and Books p.17f But if Japanes were a pure race, intolerant of misgenation to the point of fanaticism, the Americans, he knew, were a polyglot tribe, mutts and mulattos and worse- or better, depending on your point of view. In America you could be one part Negro, two parts Serbo-Croatian and three parts Eskimo and walk down the street with your head held high. I
