Ajahn Sumedho suggests that if life seems stressful, then it's time to look at it with a new attitude. The talks collected in The Sound of Silence explore ways to do just that. These insightful teachings cover familiar Buddhist themes such as awareness, consciousness, identity, relief from suffering, and mindfulness of the body, and help everyone from beginning and advanced meditators to the casual reader slow down, become grounded in the present, and experience a more meaningful life. All reflect two modes of Sumedho's expositions -? Dharma teachings for monastics as well as for the lay Buddhist community ?- allowing the reader to move between the two realms with ease. Like Ajahn Chah's Food for the Heart, this is a Dharma book that defies boundaries, expressing the Dharma's universality through an important teacher known for his singular, welcoming, and affirming voice.

Marion Shilling began her career as a silent film ingenue for MGM and went on to play heroines in Westerns of the 1930s. Stage actress Esther Muir made the transition from Broadway to Hollywood just as talkies became popular. Hugh Allan was a leading man in the last years of the silents only to leave the film business in 1930 because of the uncertainty surrounding his transition to sound films and his disgust with studio politics. These three performers and thirteen others (Barbara Barondess, Thomas Beck, Mary Brian, Pauline Curley, Billie Dove, Edith Fellows, Rose Hobart, William Janney, Marcia Mae Jones, Barbara Kent, Anita Page, Lupita Tovar, and Barbara Weeks) reminisce here about Hollywood and the movie business as it made the transition.

There is a wide field of tasks left that can only be satisfyingly attacked with the help of old-fashioned analogue technology, and one of the most important are amplifiers for analogue signals. The strongly expanded content of the second edition of "the sound of silence" leads to affordable amplifier design approaches which will end up in lowest-noise solutions not far away from the edge of physical boundaries set by room temperature and given cartridges - thus, fully compatible with very expensive so called "high-end" or "state-of-the-art" offers on today markets - and, from a noise point of view in most cases outperforming them! With easy to follow mathematical treatment it is demonstrated as well that theory is not far away from reality. Measured SNs will be found within 1dB off the calculated ones and deviations from the exact amplifier transfer won't cross the ± 0.1dB tolerance lines. Additionally, the book presents measurement set-ups and results. Consequently, comparisons with measurement results of test magazine will soon become easier to perform. This new edition includes a new chapters about reference levels, Noise in Amp Input sections, Humming Problems, and much more.

Amazon Top 100 Bestselling Author, Dakota Willink, brings an emotionally gripping, dark romantic suspense to the Leave Me Breathless World that is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat! Gianna There’s a common expression I remind myself of every day: that which does not kill us, makes us stronger. People think I live an idyllic life with my perfect husband, but they don’t know what lies beneath the façade. Like the delicate petals of the daisies he loved to give, I was easily crushed—broken, just as he wanted me to be. I’ve learned to accept what is, but I won’t let it destroy me. Instead, I do the only thing I can to survive—I run. Derek I knew she had a story. I knew it most likely contained violence. But never did I imagine the horrors she’d been though. I’d waited so long and she’d experienced so much. She was perfectly imperfect, her scars more than skin deep. It was near impossible to separate truths from lies but I knew her secret. And yet, I couldn’t help wanting to get closer. She was strong and there was beauty in strength. I was drawn to it—drawn to her. I wanted to erase her horrors and give her something new to dream about. *** TRIGGER WARNING: This story contains situations of domestic violence and abuse. Some aspects may be sensitive for some readers. ***

Colonial encounters between indigenous peoples and European state powers are overarching themes in the historical archaeology of the modern era, and postcolonial historical archaeology has repeatedly emphasized the complex two-way nature of colonial encounters. The volume examines common trajectories in indigenous colonial histories, and explores new ways to understand cultural contact, hybridization and power relations between indigenous peoples and colonial powers from the indigenous point of view. By bringing together a wide geographical range and combining multiple sources such as oral histories, historical record, and contemporary discourses with archaeological data, the volume finds new multivocal interpretations of colonial histories.

A Bridge Across Two Worlds "Nan Umrigar's astonishing and well-illustrated story will certainly open up many minds. It asks many questions and provides some answers that give new insights of life's greatest mysteries." - Reincarnation International Magazine, U. K. "I had absolutely no leanings towards spirituality or spiritualism for that matter," says Nan Umrigar. "And I must admit that the space for God remained restricted to simple visits to the Zoroastrian fire temple on birthdays and auspicious occasions. But all of this changed with the death of my son Karl, a champion jockey, whose accident on the race track of Mumbai cut short a brilliant career. After Karl's death, we felt betrayed and gave up God and religion and the belief that if you were good, kind and truthful, nothing would go wrong. My grieving family questioned the unjust hand of fate, and nothing could fill the void, till the time I met some people who communicated with their loved ones from the spirit world." Soon, Nan also began communicating with her son and received messages that were to change her life forever. Karl was determined to show his mother the way to happiness. Sounds came in from the silence - conquering the great divide and proving that there is something far beyond the life we live. Sounds of Silence traces in moving detail her joy at coming in touch with Karl once again, and her gradual introduction to Meher Baba, her son's guru in the afterlife. In Sounds of Silence Nan bares her soul, reflecting her own initial scepticism and doubts, until the weight of the evidence left her in no doubt about the reality of the messages. This is a book that challenges many concepts about life and death and particularly life after death. Originally self-published, Sounds of Silence fast became an 'underground' bestseller, and a tremendous source of strength for thousands who were drawn to it. This is a story of a mother's unrelenting hope, and of a love that never dies.
