Babies are often symbolic and so can marriage be in a dream. I would ask God to show you if there is anything in your life that you are partnering with that might be hurting you or stopping something God wants you to fulfill. God will show you. The first room, a beautiful house, with lots of trees, on a hill but in a suburb.
Was with someone who appeared to be Scott but it was not Scott. Seemed very real. There was a storm and I could see looking out the window a truck parked in a driveway rolling down into our yard from the winds. The spirit that was impersonating Scott ran out to move his truck.
I think it was then I realized I was in a dream because the house was no longer a house but a room with wooden floors and I would run into another room that looked like a small kitchen and a door to the outside. As I ran outside there was a large brown object almost like a giant bur and it absorbed me and I could not get out of it, I would move and it would get bigger and absorb more of me. I was trapped. There were so many, only documenting the ones I remember after waking up.
Next room I remember, I was me but in a body I did not know, felt like me but different, the room was dirty, nothing in it, just dirt floor like a hut almost. All I had on was a white gown, dirty, filthy, animal like and I got up from the floor and went to the door.
At the door I all I could see was a hallway and men all around, men that were evil. I did not know them, had no knowledge of them, like I had just woken up there. I was seized with fear and started grunting like an animal something I have done for many years when I have demonic dreams because my body responds that way — have no idea why. In my dream I am scaring the demons away but while lying in bed Scott says it sounds like a pig snorting.
They departed from me when I started acting like an animal and I woke up to a different place. Next room, was in a dark hallway, running, just running.
Evil was all around, lashing at me, grabbing at me, mocking me, taunting me constantly. I would try to speak and could not, again I knew I was in a dream and was trying to wake up, just wake up and I could not. Next room — was not there long. I wanted to wake up so bad and could not. I wanted out of the room and could not get out. Once I began trying to recite that I was moved to another room.
This happened several times and each time was awful. Next room, woke up in a bed, going to sound so unbelievable but it is dream. I woke up, two small children around me but their faces were grey while the rest of them was in color.
A man who looked like John Stamos walked out of the bathroom in shorts holding a cup of coffee and climbed in bed with me. He was beautiful but like my children, his face was grey while the rest of him was in color.
Again, I began to pray in my head and nothing changed. I began to speak out loud and tried quoting Gods Word and the children and the man who was lying with me changed and I knew what they were.
In my dream though I could not get the any scriptures right, I could not remember verses just bits and pieces of Gods Word. Nothing would get me awake and the scripture I was finally able to get out was from Romans, regarding those who are in Christ Jesus there is no condemnation.
When I spoke His word I was moved to another room. Next room — Again, this time I thought I was possibly awake. I woke up and Scott was over me saying it was okay, to wake up.
I was in a hospital bed, had been in a coma. Had tubes all in me. My niece was there, and she was in the hospital too and had just had a baby.
She was laying beside me holding her baby. All of my family was there and were crying and rejoicing because I had woken up and I began crying asking what happened I knew I had been asleep for a long time if my niece had a baby. I was confused, upset and doctors and nurses came rushing in and I sensed in that moment they were not who they said they were and I did not speak but only had a thought and they knew what I was thinking as if I had said it and they responded. It was then I knew I was still sleeping.
Again, I kept trying to wake up and the sensation of being held down happened again. Next room, chaos all around, I had been shot, was being rushed into the ER via a gurney. I really believed I had finally woken up and had been unconscious for a bit. Did not take me long to realize I was still asleep. I tried to sit up and it was like something was pressing me down, I could not move because I was being held down.
Not by hands I could see but I was being held down. Was finally able to quote a verse and I moved again. Next room — again woke up in the hospital. It was my distant cousin Josh and his daughter and son who surrounded me. They were claiming they were my immediate family. I recognized their faces and remembered Scott in my dream and knew immediately I was still asleep. Again, I tried to wake up, wanted to wake up so bad.
Interesting it was Josh and his children as they are agnostic. Quoted scripture, only thing that would work and woke up in another room. I was dying, heart was needing to be shocked and it was not until the third time of being shocked and me quoting scripture did I wake up. Rose up immediately, out of breath, like I had just actually been through something physical. I had to get up and document the dream.
I am going through a spiritual battle right now — a big one, as a stronghold is being torn down that has had a tight grip on me for many years. I am constantly having to give it back to God. My flesh wants to justify what God has already convicted me of. It is the ultimate defense. Hey Brandy. Praying for you and for God to show you what this dream was. I am so glad that you are able to combat with the Word of God.
That is super powerful. When I was little I dreamt that me and my mom where in a river and there was fire all around and we kept Trying to swim through holes under water but gave up and rested on wooden doors or something and then the devil would pull my mom under and she was gone and I remember waking up in a panic. God loves to speak to us and we can always take all of our dreams to Him and ask Him if there is anything in them we should know.
I am in a new country in California. I start my new job today. Last night I dreamt God lifting high so high in the air my stomach was upside down. It felt so real. Once in the clouds I turn my body around as to see who had pulled me and at the same moment I was let free falling al.
Growing spiritually, trusting god and in need of peace is exactly what my heart says. Thank you for ur website. I dream of a scene, almost magical, where multiple rainbows were tossed in the air. All I remember saying is, here is another one, oh wow! Another one! It was magical. I dreamt that someone gave me a bunch of fresh eggplant before eating it a pastor begged me and I gave them to him. My dream was about we were going on a field trip and there was a bus in the swimming pool.
We had to grab bags that include towels and stuff. I kept falling and she would tell me to stay safe. A little bit later I told her I was going to tell my mum something. She decided to compare my mum with my dad, I just ignored her. When I went to my mum I saw this boy in the swimming pool his hat came off so I asked if he wanted it back he said yes.

Hey Audrey, most of the time pregnancy and baby dreams are not a literal dream but are symbolic. You can read more about what Doug says about pregnancy dreams in this blog post.

I had multiple drams last night. One was that me and my friend who was crying over a orange clock were running from scouse gunmen and hiding in a plastic child house. We also had to bury our phone chargers in a hole in the ground.
The other dream was that me and my friend the same friend were being framed for murder by weather forecasters. Last night I dreamt my sister and I was both naked, I was abit confused, my sister prays more powerful than I am. Am usually the weak one. I dreamt of my church and an explosion of water came in and the walls of the church shattered. I have a question. If a person dreams of meeting different people but they all sound the same. They all sound like someone you know.
What does that mean? He said nothing just smiling. We go through restaurant and have dinner. Why I see this and I realized that when I wear a ring on my left hand index finger then this both dreams comees out.
Doug has some great product s on understanding dreams that will really help you grow in dream interpretation though. Hi i had a dreamlast night that was so real, i was in a plane i saw the engine be blown off ,i was inside the plane then i saw it crashing towards the ground. Hey Sue!

One of the best is the Dream Crash Course. Hi I was driving and my car died and an old man appeared from and he said we must go to his house to get somethings to fix my car and we were walking in the forest with barefoot and when arrived at his home his wife was extremely angry saying I am dating and the old man instead that i sleep over at his house but I refused because his wife was angry at us.
Hey Olivia! She ask me to go to Virginia with her because she had to go there with my great grandmother. Then my mom said something about a ministry. I said okay but we have to drive up there. Next to me were two bags full of bread. And I was eating some and it was really good. What does Virginia mean? Hey Erin! No matter what relationship I am in, I tend to have a dream about this same ex boyfriend, now that I am married, I just had a dream about him again, this time, I was laying in the bed with him and my husband was in another bed sleep next to my niece, but were all in the same room.
My ex did have his hand on my hip though. You may want to pray to break off any soul-ties with your ex-boyfriend. You can google and find some good resources on this. I was fishing in what seamed to be a hole in the ice and snow. I lowered my line and soon felt a strong pull. Struggling to pull up what I thought was a big fish, a lobster of the Australian crayfish kindcame out.
He took out a knife and gave it a smack which stunned it. I went to eat some of the meat but blood oozed out of it and I was turned off of eating it. Then I woke up………. Hey Chelsea! I am sorry but we do not have a team in place to interpret dreams sent in. And if i remember clearly it was two headed snake.
Hey Ambrose! Snakes can often mean deception. You can want to pray and decree these Bible verses over the next few weeks and see what God shows you:. Invite the Spirt of Truth But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
John NIV1. Jeremiah NLT. I remember that i had a dream last night of a mother mouse or rat im All Around Us - M. Persson: Sounds - Strange Skies MMXIV (File sure but she was a gray or light black color and she was putting newly born white mice in a pouch of some sort in her stomach…i then made her a container to release them into when she was ready but in the same container lay my black lab dog who was put down a few years ago …he was alive in my dream though and i wasnt scared of him hurting them or anything…oh and it was alot like between ten or fifteen baby white mice.
What does this mean please. His wife reminded her of her promise to see Bernard at 5. She saw him also in the dream. Hey Marie! What is the meaning of me being in a car with a pastor and he takes you to a unknown but familiar place.
Once you ask where are you he ignores you. The pastor then starts driving in a rage around the neighborhood and almost drives off a cliff, then stops after the sharp turn. I am nor scared for my life as I was screaming he slow down while driving so crazy.
Once the car stopped I got out and ran. He chases me. I was running until I ran into a unknown group of men for help. The men seemed friendly until the pastor caught up to me and they turned out to be servants of his and friend to take me by the pastors demands. I ran so fast from them fearing my life as they all chased me. Once of the men told them it was not right and that I was just looking for help and they should help us this was before I ran off,while Iwas asking for help and the pastor was convincing them not to believe me.
They guy who originally wanted to help is the only one who stood behind as I ran off and they all including the pastor chased me. I was screaming for help running through the neighborhood that had not a single soul around. The guy who stayed behind was my savior. He started running once he wanted to help me. By then I was about 2 blocked ahead of everyone and almost caught by the little short man who was running toe for toe behind me.
As the short guy was still on my toes I began to follow the guys lead who had come to help. It seemed like he was there to challenge me to run faster but without holding my hand. I had to do it myself at the toughest part when I thought I was going to he caught.
But I did nor get to find out because as soon as I went to follow him I heard a knock at the door and woke up out of my dream. What does this possible mean??? Hi, I dreamed that someone was blowing in my left ear. Then speaking loudly in the same ear. Also it was like I could feel this happening to me. And I was screaming to my husband telling him to wake me up cause I was so scared. What does this mean?? Hey Biance!

Hey Lily! Hi there! Please help me to interpret my dream last night. I cannot recall completely my dream but I can remember that there was a date of November 21 and I said to the people who were there that the World will end on this date.
By the way, only me and my sister are saved in my family and we are 7 in all which I keep claiming Acts for salvation of my entire household. Back to the dream, I then I prepared my Mother by pouring water in her entire body and then I gave her 1 piece of gold. As I prayed this morning, my spirit disagreed on the End of the World because as the Bible says no one knows when exactly Jesus is coming back.
But I believe the date is pointing to my Mother because last night when I read the Bible, God brought me to the favorite chapter of my Mother which is Psalm 41 then the word sickbed caught my attention. Then i have this urge to call my Mother as soon as possible which I did this morning and lead her the Salvation Prayer. Please help me interpret this dream. Many thanks in advance. God bless! Hey Fe! Sounds like God is speaking to you in your dreams.
I love how you are able to look symbolically at the dream rather than literally because often as we see in the Bible, dreams are symbolic.

Hello Sylvia! My dream was very abstract, so it is hard to describe. I was in a classroom setting think grade school desks in rows. At some point, the other students in the room one by one began to transform into bizarre creatures. Their bodies peeled back at the torso to reveal the top half of giant fish and I sensed a strong evil presence. I remember the fish creatures started throwing bloody fish at the different people who had not transformed, including myself. Even now, I can remember the sensation in the dream of being held down by an invisible presence.
Hey Frankie! I love how you yelled out Jesus and the force holding you down left. You are growing stronger in the Lord! Today when i was sleeping in the day at pm.

Hi, I woke up last night around 3am from a dream I did not like which goes like this…. I was in some place foreign to me, I saw different people whom I know.
Then got to the point that hit me, was that I saw my husband coming into my parents house with a woman of a different nationality both wearing white. I got so angry, and i cried to my husband as i was sure by her evil looks that she MUST have something going with my husband. As I tried, he swung for the third time an even fatter stick, which now seems like a log.
At that point i saw this friend of mine who was surprised to see what was happening, i asked her to please take me away…and I woke up, feeling shocked and confused.

I had a dream last night of me and someone else was with me but I dont know and another person female perhaps standing in front of a house maybe a cabin. It was dark out with just a little hint of light. A dark shadow appeared on the porch and moved towards us real fast. Then when it was upon me, it turned into a man with no face but facial indicators. He put me in the mind of Thomas Jefferson.
I have no clue. So I started quoting Psalm 23 in my head and then I woke up immediately. I had such a realistic nightmare of being and dying in a burning building. Finally escaping to a safe spot and that happened to be a shooting spot for something and I was shot while 3 people 2 men and a women.
The woman was pale. Asian and short black hair. She had on a red shirt, black leather jacket with jeans and boots. The men were more casual like t-shirt and jeans with boots. They both had shades on and one had a tattoo of a skull or snake on his right arm. The other had more hairy arms. They all smiled at us and gave us something it was in a tiny black box I was killed after so I never knew what was inside it besides when it fell.

In my dreams, I saw him inside my room, sitting in front of the drawing table. Yet power is never single-edged, and the story of hip hop diplomacy is deeply fraught. Drawing fromnearly interviews with hip hop artists, diplomats, and others in more than 30 countries, Build explores the inescapable tensions and ambiguities in the relationship between art and the state, revealing the ethical complexities that lurk behind what might seem mere goodwill tours.
Author MarkKatz makes the case that hip hop, at its best, can promote positive, productive international relations between people and nations. In the pulsating moments after she has been murdered and left in a dumpster outside Istanbul, Tequila Leila enters a state of heightened awareness. Her heart has stopped beating but her brain is still active--for 10 minutes 38 seconds.
While the Turkish sun rises and her friends sleep soundly nearby, she remembers her life--and the lives of others, outcasts like her.
Tequila Leila's memories bring us back to her childhood in the provinces, a highly oppressive milieu with religion and traditions, shaped by a polygamous family with two mothers and an increasingly authoritarian father. Escaping to Istanbul, Leila makes her way into the sordid industry of sex trafficking, finding a home in the city's historic Street of Brothels. This is a dark, violent world, but Leila is tough and open to beauty, light, and the essential bonds of friendship.
In Tequila Leila's death, the secrets and wonders of modern Istanbul come to life, painted vividly by the captivating tales of how Leila came to know and be loved by her friends.
As her epic journey to the afterlife comes to an end, it is her chosen family who brings her story to a buoyant and breathtaking conclusion. Ahead of the German Blitz during World War II, English parents from every social class sent their children to the countryside for safety, displacing more than three million young offspring.
InThe Secret Guests, the British royal family takes this evacuation a step further, secretly moving the princesses to the estate of the Duke of Edenmore in "neutral" Ireland. But the Irish stable hand, the housemaid, the formidable housekeeper, the Duke himself, and other Irish townspeople, some of whom lost family to English gunshots during the War of Independence, go freely about their business in and around the great house.
Soon suspicions about the guests' true identities percolate, a dangerous boredom sets in for the princesses, and, within and without Clonmillis acreage, passions as well as stakes rise. Benjamin Black, who has good information that the princesses were indeed in Ireland for a time during the Blitz, draws readers into a novel as fascinating as the nascent career of Miss Nashe, as tender as the homesickness of the sisters, as intriguing as Irish-English relations during WWII, and as suspenseful and ultimately action-packed as war itself.
Dispensing with the rules of genre, he takes what he needs from every available form or discipline--be it theology, historiography, fiction, reportage, or memoir--and fuses it under the pressure of an inimitable combination of passion, curiosity, intellect, and wit. Spanning continents, histories, and personal relationships, and treating everything from American heroin addicts to the writing of In Cold Blood, from the philosophy of Philip K.
Dick to a single haunting sentence in a minor story by H. Who is Allah? What makes Him unique? And what does He ask of those who submit to His teachings? In the spirit of his Pulitzer Prize-winning God, a trailblazing "biography" of the protagonist of the Old Testament, and Christ, his brilliant portrait of biblical Jesus, acclaimed religious scholar Jack Miles undertakes to answer these questions with his characteristic perspicacity, intelligence, and command of the subject.
Miles depicts a "character" less mercurial than Yahweh, less ready to forgive than Christ, and yet emphatically part of their traditions. The God of the Qur'an revises and perfects- His purpose is to make whole what had been corrupted or lost from the practices and scriptures of the earlier Abrahamic religions.
Setting passages from the Hebrew Bible, the New Testament, and the Qur'an side by side, Miles illuminates what is unique about Allah, His teachings and His temperament, and in doing so revises that which is false, distorted, or simply absent from our conception of the heart of Islam.
Miles writes, "I hope that by reading this book you may find it a little easier to trust the Muslim next door, thinking of him as someone whose religion, after all, may not be so wildly unreasonable that someone holding to it could not be a trusted friend.
A major American intellectual makes the historical case that the reforms of the s, reforms intended to make the nation more just and humane, instead left many Americans feeling alienated, despised, misled--and ready to put an adventurer in the White House. Christopher Caldwell has spent years studying the liberal uprising of the s and its unforeseen consequences. Even the reforms that Americans love best have come with costs that are staggeringly high--in wealth, freedom, and social stability--and that have been spread unevenly among classes and generations.
Caldwell reveals the real political turning points of the past half century, taking readers on a roller-coaster ride through Playboy magazine, affirmative action, CB radio, leveraged buyouts, iPhones, Oxycontin, Black Lives Matter, and internet cookies. In doing so, he shows that attempts to redress the injustices of the past have left Americans living under two different ideas of what it means to play by the rules.
Essential, timely, hard to put down, The Age of Entitlement is a brilliant and ambitious argument about how the reforms of the past fifty years gave the country two incompatible political systems--and drove it toward conflict. The mayor of New York has a daughter who's missing and in danger. Detective Michael Bennett has a son who's in prison.
The two strike a deal. Bennett and the mayor have always had a tense relationship, but now the mayor sees in Bennett a discreet investigator with family worries of his own.
Just one father helping another. The detective leaps into the case and sources lead him to a homicide in the Bronx. The victim has ties to a sophisticated hacking operation -- and also to the mayor's missing daughter, Natalie, a twenty-one-year-old computer prodigy. The murder is part of a serial killing spree, one with national security implications.
Michael Bennett has always been an honorable man, but sometimes -- when the lives of innocents are at stake -- honor has to take a back seat. Survival comes first. Masterfully written and psychologically penetrating, Kaplan's book underscores Berlin's continued relevance in American popular culture.

And for far too many students, that fear is realized. Research has shown that by the time they graduate, as many as one in three women and almost one in six men will have been sexually assaulted.
But why is sexual assault such a common feature of college life? And what can be done to prevent it? Sexual Citizens provides answers. Hirsch and Shamus Khan present an entirely new framework that emphasizes sexual assault's social roots, transcending current debates about consent, predators in a "hunting ground," and the dangers of hooking up. Sexual Citizens is based on years of research interviewing and observing college life--with students of different races, genders, sexual orientations, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Hirsch and Khan's landmark study reveals the social ecosystem that makes sexual assault so predictable, explaining how physical spaces, alcohol, peer groups, and cultural norms influence young people's experiences and interpretations of both sex and sexual assault.
Through the powerful concepts of "sexual projects," "sexual citizenship," and "sexual geographies," the authors offer a new and widely-accessible language for understanding the forces that shape young people's sexual relationships. Empathetic, insightful, and far-ranging, Sexual Citizens transforms our understanding of sexual assault and offers a roadmap for how to address it.

Thick "transforms narrative moments into analyses of whiteness, black misogyny, and status-signaling as means of survival for black women" Los Angeles Review of Books with "writing that is as deft as it is amusing" Darnell L.

What exactly is goodness? Where is it found in the literary imagination? Toni Morrison, one of American letters' greatest voices, pondered these perplexing questions in her celebrated Ingersoll Lecture, delivered at Harvard University in and published now for the first time in book form. Perhaps because it is overshadowed by the more easily defined evil, goodness often escapes our attention. Recalling many literary examples, from Ahab to Coetzee's Michael K, Morrison seeks the essence of goodness and ponders its significant place in her writing.
She considers the concept in relation to unforgettable characters from her own works of fiction and arrives at conclusions that are both eloquent and edifying.
In a lively interview conducted for this book, Morrison further elaborates on her lecture's ideas, discussing goodness not only in literature but in society and history--particularly black history, which has responded to centuries of brutality with profound creativity. Morrison's essay is followed by a series of responses by scholars in the fields of religion, ethics, history, and literature to her thoughts on goodness and evil, mercy and love, racism and self-destruction, language and liberation, together with close examination of literary and theoretical expressions from her works.
Each of these contributions, written by a scholar of religion, considers the legacy of slavery and how it continues to shape our memories, our complicities, our outcries, our lives, our communities, our literature, and our faith. In addition, the contributors engage the religious orientation in Morrison's novels so that readers who encounter her many memorable characters such as Sula, Beloved, or Frank Money will learn and appreciate how Morrison's notions of goodness and mercy also reflect her understanding of the sacred and the human spirit.
Contemporary neuroscience has made remarkable strides in our understanding of the developing adolescent brain - an area of study previously reserved for developmental psychologists and pediatric endocrinologists. With an eye toward the history and future of the field, Album), Coming of Age takes alook at the research that brought about this paradigm shift.
Current advances in neuroscience have changed the way we think about everything - from how drugs and stress influence adolescent development to how hormones cause differing developmental trajectories among females and males. Sisk and Romeo guide students and non-specialist researchers alike through the basic science of brain and behavioral development.
Important social and ethical questions are raised including: Why does puberty continue to occur at a younger age? Why does teenage behavior embrace risk and volatility? When does adolescent development end? And how should our understanding of adolescent development affect the juvenile justice system? Pop music surrounds us - in our cars, over supermarket speakers, even when we are laid out at the dentist - but how often do we really hear what's playing?

Replete with engaging discussions and eye-catching illustrations, Switched on Pop brings to life the musical qualities that catapult songs into the pop pantheon.

This exciting new edition of The Philosophy of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy CBT demonstrates how techniques and concepts from Socratic philosophy, especially Stoicism, can be integrated into the practice of CBT and other forms of psychotherapy. What can we learn about psychological therapy from ancient philosophers? Psychotherapy and philosophy were not always separate disciplines. Here, Donald Robertson explores the relationship between ancient Greek philosophy and modern cognitive-behavioural psychotherapy.
The founders of CBT described Stoicism as providing the "philosophical origins" of their approach and many parallels can be found between Stoicism and CBT, in terms of both theory and practice. Starting with hypnotism and early 20th century rational psychotherapy and continuing through early behaviour therapy, rational-emotive behaviour therapy REBTand cognitive-behavioural therapy CBTthe links between Stoic philosophy and modern psychotherapy are identified and explained.
This book is the first detailed account of the influence of Stoic philosophy upon modern psychotherapy. It provides a fascinating insight into the revival of interest in ancient Western philosophy as a guide to modern living. It includes many concepts and techniques, which can be readily applied in modern psychotherapy or self-help.

Focus: Popular Music in Contemporary Indiaexamines India's musical soundscape beyond the classical and folk traditions of old to consider the culturally, socially, and politically rich contemporary music that is All Around Us - M. Persson: Sounds - Strange Skies MMXIV (File and energizing an Indian youth culture on the precipice of a major identity shift.
From Bollywood film songs and Indo-jazz to bhangra hip-hop and Indian death metal, the book situates Indian popular music within critical and historical frameworks, highlighting the unprecedented changes the region's music has undergone in recent decades. This critical approach provides readers with a foundation for understanding an Indian musical culture that is as diverse and complex as the region itself.
Included are case studies featuring song notations, first-person narratives, and interviews of well-known artists and emerging musicians alike. Illuminated are issues of great import in India today--as reflected through its music--addressing questions of a "national" aesthetic, the effects of Western music, and identity politics as they relate to class, caste, LGBTQ perspectives, and other marginalized voices.

Spanning over a century of sweeping changes, from women's rights to the Great Depression to World War II to the rise of the digital era, this book unpacks the ways in which the world has been--and continues to be--remade according to the principles of the once-obscure discipline of user-experience design.
In this essential text, Kuang and Fabricant map the hidden rules of the designed world and shed light on how those rules have caused our world to change--an underappreciated but essential history that's pieced together for the first time. Combining the expertise and insight of a leading journalist and a pioneering designer, User Friendly provides a definitive, thoughtful, and practical perspective on a topic that has rapidly gone from arcane to urgent to inescapable.

It doesn't matter that he is twice her age, that there is no love between them. Their marriage is an opportunity for her entire close-knit family to eventually immigrate. So on New Year's Day,Ana leaves behind everything she knows and becomes Ana Ruiz, a wife confined to a cold six-floor walk-up in Washington Heights.
Lonely and miserable, Ana hatches a reckless plan to escape. But at the bus terminal, she is stopped by Cesar, Juan's free-spirited younger brother, who convinces her to stay. As the Dominican Republic slides into political turmoil, Juan returns to protect his family's assets, leaving Cesar to take care of Ana. Suddenly, Ana is free to take English lessons at a local church, lie on the beach at Coney Island, see a movie at Radio City Music Hall, go dancing with Cesar, and imagine the possibility of a different kind of life in America.
When Juan returns, Ana must decide once again between her heart and her duty to her family. In bright, musical prose that reflects the energy of New York City, Angie Cruz's Dominicana is a vital portrait of the immigrant experience and the timeless coming-of-age story of a young woman finding her voice in the world. Listening is a social process. Even apparently trivial acts of listening are expert performances of acquired cognitive and bodily habits.
Contemporary scholars acknowledge this fact with the notion that there are "auditory cultures. This approachable and elegantly written book tells the story of how music became a vital topic for understanding the senses and their role in the creation of knowledge.
Focussing in particular on discussions of music and sensation in Plato and Aristoxenus, Sean Gurd explores a crucial early chapter in the history of hearing and gently raises critical questions about how aesthetic traditionalism and sensory certainty can be joined together in a mutually reinforcing symbiosis. If ever someone knew how to put a genuinely irresistible book together, it's Jacobs in Still Here. Rollicking but intimate, it tracks one of Broadway's great personalities from her upbringing in Detroit during the Great Depression to her fateful move to New York City, where she studied alongside Marlon Brando, Bea Arthur, and Harry Belafonte.
We accompany Elaine through her jagged rise to fame, to Hollywood and London, and across her later years, when she enjoyed a stunning renaissance, punctuated by a turn on the popular television show 30 Rock. And we see the entertainer triumphing over personal turmoil with the development of her Tony Award-winning one-woman show, Elaine Stritch at Liberty, which established her as an emblem of spiky independence and Manhattan life for an entirely new generation of admirers.
In Still Here, Alexandra Jacobs conveys the full force of Stritch's sardonic wit and brassy charm while acknowledging her many dark complexities. Following years of meticulous research and interviews, this is a portrait of a powerful, vulnerable, honest, and humorous figure who continues to reverberate in the public consciousness.
A Juilliard-trained musician and professor of history explores the fascinating entanglement of classical music with American foreign relations. The work of renowned conductors, instrumentalists, and singers? Jonathan Rosenberg recovers the politics behind classical music, showing how German musicians were dismissed or imprisoned as the country's music was swept from American auditoriums during World War I?
An argument that the movement for network neutrality was of a piece with its neoliberal environment, solidifying the continued existence of a commercially driven internet. Media reform activists rejoiced in when the FCC codified network neutrality, approving a set of Open Internet rules that prohibitedproviders from favoring some content and applications over others--only to have their hopes dashed two years later when the agency reversed itself.
In this book, Russell Newman offers a unique perspective on these events, arguing that the movement for network neutrality was of a piece with its neoliberal environment rather than counter to it; perversely, it served to solidify the continued existence of a commercially dominant internet and even emergent modes of surveillance and platform capitalism. Going beyond the usual policy narrative of open versus closed networks, or public interest versus corporate power, Newman uses network neutrality as a lens through which to examine the ways that neoliberalism renews and reconstitutes itself, the limits of particular forms of activism, and the shaping of future regulatory processes and policies.
Newman explores the debate's roots in the s movement for open access, the transition to network neutrality battles in the s, and the terms in which these battles were fought.
Bythe debate had become unmoored from its own origins, and an emerging struggle against "neoliberal sincerity" points to a need to rethink activism surrounding media policy reform itself. An engaging and unsettling contemporary history of the FBI, and a bold call for reform, told by a long-time counter-terrorism undercover agent who has become a widely admired whistleblower and a critic for civil liberties and accountable government.
The Performative Power of Vocality offers a fresh perspective on voice as a subject of critical inquiry by employing an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural approach. Conventional treatment of voice in theatre and performance studies too often regards it as a subcategory of actor training, associated with the established methods that have shaped voice pedagogy within Western theatre schools, conservatories, and universities. This monograph significantly deviates from these dominant models through its investigation of the non-discursive, material, and affective efficacy of vocality, with a focus on orally transmitted vocal traditions.
Drawing from her performance training, research collaborations, and commitment to cultural diversity, Magnat proposes a dialogical approach to vocality. Inclusive of established, current, and emerging research perspectives, this approach sheds light on the role of vocality as a vital source of embodied knowledge, creativity, and well-being grounded in process, practice, and place, as well as a form of social and political agency.
An excellent resource for qualitative researchers, artist-scholars, and activists committed to decolonization, cultural revitalization, and social justice, The Performative Power of Vocality opens up new avenues of understanding across Indigenous and Western philosophy, performance studies, musicology, ethnomusicology, sound and voice studies, anthropology, sociology, phenomenology, cognitive science, physics, ecology, and biomedicine.
A contributing source for the Warner Bros. It's a story with no winners - except for readers of this terrific book. Minutes later, the bomb detonated amid a crowd of fifty thousand people. But thanks to Jewell, it only wounded and killed two, not the untold scores who would have otherwise died. With the eyes of the world on Atlanta, the Games continued. But the pressure to find the bomber was intense. Within seventy-two hours, Jewell went from the hero to the FBI's main suspect.
The news leaked and the intense focus on the guard forever changed his life. The worst part: It let the true bomber roam free to strike again. The attack left a mark on American history, but most of what we remember is wrong.
In a triumph of reporting and access in the tradition of the best investigative journalism, former U. Attorney Kent Alexander and former Wall Street Journal reporter Kevin Salwen reconstruct all the events leading up to, during, and after the Olympic bombing from mountains of law enforcement evidence and the extensive personal records of key players, including Richard himself. Protecting and promoting health is inherently a political endeavor that requires a sophisticated understanding of the distribution and use of power.
Yet while the global nature of health is widely recognized, its political nature is less well understood. In recent decades, theinterdisciplinary field of global health politics has emerged to demonstrate the interconnections of health and core political topics, including foreign and security policy, trade, economics, and development. Today a growing body of scholarship examines how the global health landscape has bothshaped and been shaped by political actors and structures.
The Oxford Handbook of Global Health Politics provides an authoritative overview and assessment of research on this important and complicated subject. The volume is motivated by two arguments. First, health is not simply a technical subject, requiring evidence-based solutions to real-world problems,but an arena of political contestation where norms, values, and interests also compete and collide. Second, globalization has fundamentally changed the nature of health politics in terms of the ideas, interests, and institutions involved.
The volume comprises more than 30 chapters by leading experts in global health and politics. Each chaper provides an overview of the state of the art on a given theoretical perspective, major actor, or global health issue. The Handbook offers both an excellent introduction to scholars new to thefield and also an invaluable teaching and research resource for experts seeking to understand global health politics and its future directions.
Collectively, the handbook's 56 contributors argue that music education benefits all students only if educators activelywork to broaden diversity in the profession and consistently include diverse learning strategies, experiences, and perspectives in the classroom. In this handbook, contributors encourage music education faculty, researchers, and graduate students to take up that challenge. Throughout the handbook, contributors provide a look at ways music teacher educators prepare teachers to enter the music education profession and offer suggestions for ways in which preservice teachers can advocate for and adapt to changes in contemporary school settings.
For example, educators canexpand the types of music groups offered to students, from choir to jazz ensemble. Building upon students' available resources, contributors use research-based approaches to identify the ways in which educational methods and practices must transform in order to successfully challenge existing musiceducation boundaries.

In this book, Russell Powell investigates whether we can use the patterns and processes of convergent evolution to make inferences about universal laws of life, on Earth and elsewhere.
Weaving together disparate philosophical and empirical threads, Powell offers the first detailed analysis of the interplay between contingency and convergence in macroevolution, as it relates to both complex life in general and cognitively complex life in particular. If the evolution of mind is not a historical accident, the product of convergence rather than contingency, then, Powell asks, is mind likely to be an evolutionarily important feature of any living world?
Stephen Jay Gould argued for the primacy of contingency in evolution. Gould's "radical contingency thesis" RCT has been challenged, but critics have largely failed to engage with its core claims and theoretical commitments.
Powell fills this gap. He first examines convergent regularities at both temporal and phylogenetic depths, finding evidence that both vindicates and rebuffs Gould's argument for contingency.
