              Starch Work Done by Experts: Chinese Laundries in Aotearoa New Zealand (Paperback)

              Chinese laundries first opened in the 1880s and were an integral part of New Zealand's social fabric until at least the 1950s. How did they develop in towns from Southland to the far north before slowly disappearing after the 1940s? Who ran them and how did they fit into their co...mmunities? Starch Work by Experts: Chinese Laundries in Aotearoa New Zealand tells the story of the laundrymen, their families and customers. Hand laundries were one of four main occupations for early Chinese settlers, along with mining, market gardening and storekeeping. They provided a low-cost stepping stone to a new life through hard work, skill and long hours. This book counters the stereotype of Chinese laundry work as menial and unskilled. While Chinese laundries were humble establishments, Chinese laundrymen (and women) were experts in starching, particularly men's shirts and detachable collars. Blending documentary research, personal stories and fascinating images, Starch Work by Experts goes beyond the grille to step inside the world of steaming coppers, hissing irons and perfectly starched collars.

This year's participants were given the op...ening and closing lines of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, so every story in this anthology starts and ends exactly the same way--and yet the stories themselves are nothing alike! From a cheerful cannibal to a transhuman plastivore, from a lovesick angel to a text-messaging devil, from a lonely teen with intimacy issues to a sultry virago who literally sets her bed afire--you've never read a collection of stories like this one! Mystery, suspense, horror, crypto-mythology, science fiction, poetry, teen strife, erotica, humor. These stories are as different from one another as the 21 savvy authors who dreamt them up. So grab a copy now! Meet this year's finalists. These are all stories with pleasure to burn! Learn more about literary taxidermy, as well as future contests, by visiting literarytaxidermy.com.

              Return to Red River--a beautiful mountain town in the southern Rockies, where the nights are cool and the romance is hot--one last time in this wonderful holiday romance that has as much heart as it does heat. Maybe some wishes aren't meant to come true. Christmas is a hot button... for Kimberly Perez, and not in a good way. Having grown up in the foster system, she's as frugal as she is smart and can't abide the materialism of the holidays. In an effort to use precious funds to help children in need instead of wasting money on meaningless commercialism, she pitches a new city ordinance to Red River's town council that would cut all holiday decorations and festivities from the budget. Ross Armstrong is determined to honor his late sister's memory by continuing her love of all things Christmas in Red River. But to do so, he's got to block the passing of a silly new law-and the person behind it-which would essentially ban Christmas altogether. When their disagreement pits them against each other at a public town council meeting and splits Red River in half, the council chairperson forces them to work together on a new Red River holiday tradition-the Wishing Tree. Can they work together in the true spirit of the holidays, not only to reunite the town they love but to also cultivate the burgeoning feelings they have for each other. Or will their differences turn them into enemies and divide Red River forever? A SPECIAL NOTE TO SHELLY'S READERS Hello, my lovelies. As this--my first published series--comes to a close, I'm both excited to start new books set in a different location and sad that the wonderfully quirky characters who make up the heart of Red River will no longer be my focus when I sit down to write every day. Thank you for following this series from start to finish. It's been a fantastic journey, and just like the characters in the books, there has been ups and there has been downs. But you all have stayed with me every step of the way, and for that I am eterna

              To become a good guitarist means that you need to know at least some basics of the music theory. Now, you will know even more than just the basics terms! But before we start uncovering the secrets of music, we would like to point out a few things about practicing and its importan...ce. .Firstly, we would like to point out that the amount of time will not help you improve unless you have a good plan and a clear goal. You need to combine these two things to achieve the level of playing that you aim for. Every fine musician nurtures its skills; he or she develops them patiently and uses patterns that are both comprehensive and systematic. That is the best way to correct your flaws while keeping your virtuosity.

              Vatican II was largely, and perhaps most famously, about Deicide - a massive media campaign blitzed the Council Fathers to promote a change in Catholic teaching - nothing less than the exoneration of the Jews of complicity in the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. This is the story of ...the struggle and failure by Jewish groups, and of Bishop Luigi Carli, chairman of the commission which reworked the rejected Declaration on the Jews for Pope Paul VI. Bishop Carli's articles written while the Council was on-going were lost until finally located by Professor von Peters and translated into English. This work showcases Bishop Carli's articles, giving the good Bishop's own thoughts, research and reasons for rejecting the original Declaration. Carli, later an Archbishop, was Pope Paul VI's man to settle the questions of deicide, rejection of the Jews, etc. Supplementary materials highlight the struggle.

              From Miniskirt to Hijab: A Girl in Revolutionary Iran
               

              From Miniskirt to Hijab: A Girl in Revolutionary Iran (EPUB ebook)

              By Saper, Jacqueline

              <span >Jacqueline Saper, named after Jacqueline 'Kennedy, was born in Tehran to Iranian and British parents. At eighteen she witnessed the civil unrest of the 1979 Iranian revolution and continued to live in the Islamic Republic during its most volatile times, including the Iran-...Iraq War. In a deeply intimate and personal story, Saper recounts her privileged childhood in prerevolutionary Iran and how she gradually became aware of the paradoxes in her life and community&mdash;primarily the disparate religions and cultures. In 1979 under the Ayatollah regime, Iran became increasingly unfamiliar and hostile to Saper. Seemingly overnight she went from living a carefree life of wearing miniskirts and attending high school to listening to fanatic diatribes, forced to wear the hijab, and hiding in the basement as Iraqi bombs fell over the city. She eventually fled to the United States in 1987 with her husband and children after, in part, witnessing her six-year-old daughter&rsquo;s indoctrination into radical Islamic politics at school. At the heart of Saper&rsquo;s story is a harrowing and instructive tale of how extremist ideologies seized a Westernized, affluent country and transformed it into a fundamentalist Islamic society. '
