Die Superkraft in uns. Jeder Mensch hat Zugang zu einem unbegrenzten Potenzial an Kraft. Je mehr davon er sich erschließt, desto höher seine Lebensqualität. Phil Stutz und Barry Michels, Autoren des Bestsellers »The Tools«, zeigen eindringlich, was wir an Glück, Erfolg und gelingenden Beziehungen erreichen können, wenn wir uns entscheiden »The Force« zu aktivieren. Doch erstaunlich viele Menschen geben sich mit wenig zufrieden. Sie überlassen sich dem inneren Verhinderer, der jeden von uns herausfordert. Er speist sich aus Energielosigkeit, falschen Hoffnungen, verletzten Gefühlen und unguten Belohnungsstrategien. Vier Power-Tools helfen, sich aus seinen Fängen zu befreien und Meister unseres Lebens zu werden.

Das neue, große Kriminal-Epos des amerikanischen Bestseller-Autors Don Winslow. In den Straßenschluchten von New York lässt der internationale Star-Autor Don Winslow ein alptraumhaft realistisches Szenario von Drogen, Menschenhandel, Mord entstehen. Er zeichnet die todbringende Allianz von staatlichen Stellen und organisiertem Verbrechen: Sie sehen sich als Elitetruppe der Polizei, eine verschworene Einheit, ausgestattet mit weitreichenden technischen und rechtlichen Möglichkeiten. Gemeinsam sollen sie für Ruhe und Ordnung in ihrem Revier sorgen, dem nördlichen Manhattan. Und genau das tun sie. Hier gelten ihre Spielregeln, hier geschieht nichts ohne ihr Wissen. Doch die Truppe ist extremem Stress ebenso ausgesetzt wie extremen Risiken ... und extremen Verlockungen ... Don Winslows neues Meisterwerk – erschütternd, brutal und unnachgiebig. "Don Winslows "Corruption" ist faszinierend, eine echter Wurf. Stellen Sie sich "Der Pate" vor, aber mit Cops. So gut ist es." – Stephen King "Mit eindringlicher Menschlichkeit in den tragischen Details und mit einer epischen Monumentalität, die geradezu an Shakespeare erinnert – vermutlich der beste Cop-Roman aller Zeiten." – Lee Child "In diesem epischen Roman voll niederschmetternder moralischer Komplexität blickt Don Winslow durch die Augen eines höchst erfahrenen und korrupten Polizisten tief in die Seele des modernen Amerika. Leser von modernen Meistern wie Don DeLillo, Richard Price und Geroge Pelecanons werden reichlich belohnt werden." – Publishers Weekly "Don Winslow hat das kreiert, was wahrscheinlich zum Inbegriff des Polizei-Romans werden wird." – Booklist

Magisterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Filmwissenschaft, Note: 1,0, Freie Universität Berlin (Seminar für Filmwissenschaft), 68 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Das Imperium lebt und prosperiert. Mit dem Filmstart von Episode III – The Revenge of the Sith, dem am 19. Mai 2005 angelaufenen dritten und letzten Teil der zweiten Star Wars-Trilogie, ist mitnichten etwas zum Ende gekommen. Die zahlreichen Kommentatoren, die größtenteils erleichtert festhielten, jetzt sei „die Geschichte zuende erzählt“, irren. In den Homing Beacon-Newslettern des internationalen Star Wars-Fanclubs etwa ist bereits die Rede von einer Fernsehserie, mit der die Geschichte von Luke und Anakin Skywalker und ihren Gefährten Han Solo, Prinzessin Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, C3-PO und R2-D2 fortgesetzt werden soll. Zudem hat George Lucas eine 3D-Neufassung der Filme angekündigt, und regelmäßig wird über Bücher und Computerspiele aus dem von George Lucas geschaffenen Zeichenuniversum berichtet, die Verlängerungen der bisherigen filmischen Erzählung sind und in der Vergangenheit bereits die folgenden filmischen Diskurse mit vorbereitet haben.

The Force of Symmetry gives an elementary introduction to the spectacular interplay among the three great themes of contemporary physics: quantum behavior, relativity, and symmetry. In clear, nontechnical language, it explores many fascinating aspects of modern physics, discussing the nature and interaction of force and matter. All these themes are drawn together toward the end of the book to describe the most successful physics theory in history, the "standard model" of subatomic particles. The book is suitable for undergraduate students in physics and mathematics.

Taking as her subjects migrant Filipina domestic workers in Rome and Los Angeles, transnational migrant families in the Philippines, and Filipina migrant entertainers in Tokyo, Parreñas documents the social, cultural, and political pressures that maintain women’s domesticity in migration, as well as the ways migrant women and their children negotiate these adversities. Parreñas examines the underlying constructions of gender in neoliberal state regimes, export-oriented economies such as that of the Philippines, protective migration laws, and the actions and decisions of migrant Filipino women in maintaining families and communities, raising questions about gender relations, the status of women in globalization, and the meanings of greater consumptive power that migration garners for women. The Force of Domesticity starkly illustrates how the operation of globalization enforces notions of women’s domesticity and creates contradictory messages about women’s place in society, simultaneously pushing women inside and outside the home.

During the twentieth century, the view that assertions and norms are valid insofar as they respond to principles independent of all local and temporal contexts came under attack from two perspectives: the partiality of translation and the intersubjective constitution of the self, understood as responsive to recognition. Defenses of universalism have by and large taken the form of a thinning out of substantive universalism into various forms of proceduralism. Alessandro Ferrara instead launches an entirely different strategy for transcending the particularity of context without contradicting our pluralistic intuitions: a strategy centered on the exemplary universalism of judgment. Whereas exemplarity has long been thought to belong to the domain of aesthetics, this book explores the other uses to which it can be put in our philosophical predicament, especially in the field of politics. After defining exemplarity and describing how something unique can possess universal significance, Ferrara addresses the force exerted by exemplarity, the nature of the judgment that discloses exemplarity, and the way in which the force of the example can bridge the difference between various contexts. Drawing not only on Kant's Critique of the Power of Judgment but also on the work of Hannah Arendt, John Rawls, Ronald Dworkin, and Jürgen Habermas, Ferrara outlines a view of exemplary validity that is applicable to today's central philosophical issues, including public reason, human rights, radical evil, sovereignty, republicanism and liberalism, and religion in the public sphere.

Movies and TV have conditioned people to believe that a Catholic priest is required to exorcise demons who have taken control of a person. Is this true, or is it a devilishly clever scheme by Satan to make the people rely more and more on their priest for protection and cost them their souls? The answer contains many surprises. This comic reveals how the Vatican is using its occult force to deceive millions. It's the "habitation of devils" described in Rev. 18:2.

Have you ever read a legal opinion and come across an odd term like the fallacy of denying the antecedent, the fallacy of the undistributed middle, or the fallacy of the illicit process and wondered how you missed that in law school? You’re not alone: every day, lawyers make arguments that fatally trespass the rules of formal logic—without realizing it—because traditional legal education often overlooks imparting the practical wisdom of ancient philosophy as it teaches students how to “think like a lawyer.” In his book, The Force of Logic: Using Formal Logic as a Tool in the Craft of Legal Argument, lawyer and law professor Stephen M. Rice guides you to develop your powers of legal reasoning in a new way, through effective tips and tactics that will forever change the way you argue your cases. Rice contends that formal logic provides tools that help lawyers distinguish good arguments from bad ones and, moreover, that they are simple to learn and use. When you know how to recognize logical fallacies, you will not only strengthen your own arguments, but you will also be able to punch holes in your opponent’s—and that can make the difference between winning and losing. In this book, Rice builds on the theoretical foundation of formal logic by demonstrating logical fallacies through the use of anecdotes, examples, graphical illustrations, and exercises for you to try that are derived from common case documents. It is a hands-on primer that presents a practical approach for understanding and mastering the place of formal logic in the art of legal reasoning. Whether you are a lawyer, a judge, a scholar, or a student, The Force of Logic will inspire you to love legal argument, and appreciate its beauty and complexity in a brand new way.

Over the course of more than a decade, the Haida Nation triumphantly returned home all known Haida ancestral remains from North American museums. In the summer of 2010, they achieved what many thought was impossible: the repatriation of ancestral remains from the Pitt Rivers Museum at the University of Oxford. The Force of Family is an ethnography of those efforts to repatriate ancestral remains from museums around the world. Focusing on objects made to honour the ancestors, Cara Krmpotich explores how memory, objects, and kinship connect and form a cultural archive. Since the mid-1990s, Haidas have been making button blankets and bentwood boxes with clan crest designs, hosting feasts for hundreds of people, and composing and choreographing new songs and dances in the service of repatriation. The book comes to understand how shared experiences of sewing, weaving, dancing, cooking and feasting lead to the Haida notion of “respect,” the creation of kinship and collective memory, and the production of a cultural archive.

Events: The Force of International Law presents an analysis of international law, centred upon those historical and recent events in which international law has exerted, or acquired, its force. From Spanish colonization and the Peace of Westphalia, through the release of Nelson Mandela and the Rwandan genocide, and to recent international trade negotiations and the 'torture memos', each chapter in this book focuses on a specific international legal event. Short and accessible to the non-specialist reader, these chapters consider what forces are put into play when international law is invoked, as it is so frequently today, by lawyers, laypeople, or leaders. At the same time, they also reflect on what is entailed in naming these ‘events’ of international law and how international law grapples with their disruptive potential. Engaging economic, military, cultural, political, philosophical and technical fields, Events: The Force of International Law will be of interest to international lawyers and scholars of international relations, legal history, diplomatic history, war and/or peace studies, and legal theory. It is also intended to be read and appreciated by anyone familiar with appeals to international law from the general media, and curious about the limits and possibilities occasioned, or the forces mobilised, by that appeal.

The Force of LOVE, Gives life to all things, It can be seen in all of creation. The force of love, Causes us to care for each other, Forgive one another, And love without fear. The force of love, Embrace all colours, Young and old, Rich or poor; It is beautiful.(Title Poem). This is Worrel's third publication of poetry. In his previous two works, "Worth Contemplating" and "Thoughtful Reflections, "he focused broadly on the love of God, toward us and how it is, or should be emulated by children of God, whose lives reflect the attributes of the God they serve. Hedivulgedhisobservationofconsequencesforthelackofloveaswellasthepleasantrewardsorbenefitsthatarederivedfromactivelysharingloveeven(asGodcommands)withyourenemyorsomeonethatishardtolove.Thispublication," The Force of Love," is described in the paragraph above which is the title poem. In This publication, Worrel addresses more circumstantially, the injustice, prejudice, blind sightedness or ignorance; and painful consequences of the absences of love in our life situations. He also declared the bold hope which all of us can have in the assurance of God's unconditional love especially when facing challenges and uncertainties. Finally, as far as humanity is concerned, Worrel broadly distinguishes the dearest of all expressed love: The love of a mother. This privileged expression is widely recognized and honoured in this collection of poetry. An encouraging look into the exploration of love as it is expressed this time in a raw, candid and personal revelation.
