This sequel to Marilyn Gardner's Between Worlds probes deeply into the journey that forms a third culture kid’s identity. Gardner weaves together memories of joy and pain, close friendships and loneliness in a compelling portrait of an international childhood. From the close quarters of boarding school, to the strangeness of furloughs in her parents’ native Massachusetts, Worlds Apart is an honest and moving portrayal of a young girl’s struggles with faith, friendship, and belonging. The book offers an inspiring model for other third culture kids seeking to make sense of their unique experience, and the final chapter brings together many practical resources to help TCKs navigate their own journey. "This is a book that shows the complications of a challenging childhood, the healing power of a faithful life, and the precious gifts Third Culture Kids are to the world." Rachel Pieh Jones, from the Foreword"Part spiritual reflection, part childhood reminiscence and part travelogue, Marilyn’s book will be especially welcomed by those trying to make sense of their own personal stories, especially if they involve transitions across multiple cultures and geographic locations."

Cari Z. Changing Worlds

2nd EditionTheir love will either inspire change in the world or tear it apart. Former starship captain Jason Kim and his lover, Ferran, are starting a life together on Ferran’s native planet. The Perel matriarchs reluctantly allowed their marriage in the hopes of securing better diplomatic relations with humanity, even though the decision ignites anger from traditionalists. Ferran’s family accepts Jason and the love the two men have found, but other influential families are less accommodating and much less willing to welcome an outsider to their isolated, subterranean world. Some of their enemies are willing to go as far as eliminating Jason permanently. Tensions are quickly building toward a breaking point that might push Perelan into a bloody civil war. If Jason and Ferran have any hope of surviving the coming conflict, they’ll have to rely on their devotion to each other more than ever before. But that won’t be easy when a figure from Jason’s past reappears to make them question everything. First Edition of Opening Worlds published by Storm Moon Press, 2011.First Edition of Changing Worlds published by Storm Moon Press, 2012.

Johan Rudolph The Tax Deductibility of Expenditure Incurred in Virtual Worlds

The rapid development of virtual worlds has made virtual currency and virtual property big business. Virtual currency from almost every game and social virtual world can be exchanged for real world currency. It is this type of exchanges from virtual currency to real world currency, generally at a profit, that caught the attention of tax authorities.The study concluded that where income from virtual worlds form part of a resident's gross income, the expenditure incurred in generating this income, by means of a trading activity, qualify for a deduction in terms of the general deduction formula, contained in section 11(a) of the Income Tax Act of South Africa.

Nicolas Berdyaev, Donald Attwater Dostoievsky. An Interpretation

"So great is the worth of Dostoevsky that to have produced him is by itself sufficient justification for the existence of the Russian people in the world." This is Nikolai Berdyaev's assessment of Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881), the great Russian novelist, religious thinker, and prophet. Berdyaev's aim in this book is to examine Dostoevsky's spiritual side, to explore in all its depth the way in which Dostoevsky perceived the universe and to reconstruct out of these elements his entire world-view. Dostoevsky shows us new worlds, worlds in motion, by which alone human destinies can be made intelligible; and these worlds and these destinies can only be grasped by a spiritual analysis. Berdyaev provides such an analysis.

Zeman Rene Marketing of virtual collectibles

With the rise of online multiplayer games and worlds, collecting virtual goods has become an increasing social activity and therefore established the virtual good's subset of virtual collectibles as a relevant category. The corresponding emergence of virtual markets leads to increasing economic and social relevance for virtual collectibles. This is not only true for the obvious markets in virtual worlds where operators try to maximize the economic impact for them and develop sustainable business models. It is also true for many activities in real and virtual worlds where virtual collectibles provide value to people and enhance their overall experience with and within the worlds. Understanding the specifics of virtual collectibles when it comes to marketing them, their value creation chain and the interaction with real and virtual worlds is a major challenge in a vastly unresearched business environment. A major aspect in identifying this is to understand the drivers behind collecting behavior, how they translate to the non-materiality of virtual goods, what can be done to overcome corresponding obstacles and use opportunities and what are the prerequisites and frameworks so that it is accomplished successfully. All this will lead to a dualism in attributes for virtual and real in many goods which increases the potential for virtual or partly virtual collectibles in many ways.

Immanuel Velikovsky Worlds in Collision

With this book Immanuel Velikovsky first presented the revolutionary results of his 10-year-long interdisciplinary research to the public, founded modern catastrophism - based on eyewitness reports by our ancestors - shook the doctrine of uniformity of geology as well as Darwin's theory of evolution, put our view of the history of our solar system, of the Earth and of humanity on a completely new basis - and caused an uproar that is still going on today. Worlds in Collision - written in a brilliant, easily understandable and entertaining style and full to the brim with precise information - can be considered one of the most important and most challenging books in the history of science. Not without reason was this book found open on Einstein's desk after his death. For all those who have ever wondered about the evolution of the earth, the history of mankind, traditions, religions, mythology or just the world as it is today, Worlds in Collision is an absolute MUST-READ!

Immanuel Velikovsky Ages in Chaos I. From the Exodus to King Akhnaton

This is the first volume of the series Ages in Chaos, in which Immanuel Velikovsky undertakes a reconstruction of the history of antiquity. With utmost precision and the exciting style of a presentation that's typical for him he shows, beyond doubt, what nobody would consider possible: in the conventional history of Egypt - and therefore also of many neighboring cultures - a span of 600 years is described, which has never happened! This assertion is as unbelievable and outrageous as the assertions in Worlds in Collision or Earth in Upheaval. But Velikovsky takes us on a detailed and highly interesting journey through the - corrected - history and makes us a witness to how many question marks disappear, doubts vanish and corresponding facts from the entire Near East furnish a picture of overall conformity and correctness. You will meet an Egyptian eyewitness of the biblical plagues and the mysterious Queen of Sheba. You will find out to where her legendary visit led her. You will, moreover, learn surprising details about the temple of Solomon and learn who was behind its sacking. In the end you do not only wonder how conventional historiography has come into existence, but why it is still taught and published. Just as Velikovsky became the father of "neo-catastrophism" by Worlds in Collision, he became the father of "new chronology" by Ages in Chaos.

Doris Dier The Motifs of Utopia and Dystopia in Aldous Huxley.s Brave New World

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1, University of Vienna, course: Science Fiction: The Classics, language: English, abstract: One of the many features of science fiction is the creation of alternative worlds and societies. The utopia-motif has been a very creative one in doing so, constantly inspiring authors to pursuit the goal of imagining a perfect world. The motif is also productive in a sense of redevelopment, since it serves to lay out the points of criticism that occur when looking at the "real" world at times. These approaches have resulted in the formation of new motifs such as dystopia. Aldous Huxley's Brave New World is an ambiguous masterpiece that allows the reader to reveal various levels of meaning. Researchers mainly suggest it to be read as a satire, but it is also considered to be a key work of dystopian literature. This paper points out the elements that allow us to identify Brave New World as both a utopian and dystopian narrative. It concentrates on the points of view because in my opinion they determine the motif. The thesis is that depending on the viewpoint of the different characters the two worlds Huxley presents us can be either interpreted as a utopia or dystopia. The paper aims to introduce the major terms Utopia and Dystopia, but also outline the two different worlds Huxley describes in his novel.

On a suburban London street in the mid-1970s, a young man collapses and later in hospital dies, only to find himself travelling in an entirely different dimension. There, he encounters unimaginable worlds of horror and bliss on a journey that takes him to the very source of life itself. As doctors resuscitate him, he returns to the living, but with a desperate need to reconcile his experience with a world that is no longer familiar. This leads him down unexpected paths on his search for an understanding of the nature and, most of all, the location of the uncharted worlds beyond this life. Based on a true story.

Horror Madame Horror, Doodlemonkie Sockmosis. When Worlds Collide

WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE documents the criminal acts of troublesome sock thieves known as DOLDRITES that travel from a land called THE DOLDRUMS to terrorize our homes and steal our beloved socks. Do not be fooled into thinking this is a work of fiction with a happy ending; we do not wish to soften the blow with a story about a cute little SOCK HORROR on a rescue mission to free his kind. This is a harrowing read that sets out to reveal the truth behind your ever growing odd sock pile. SOCKMOSIS - WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE contains many illustrations, as well as special appendices including The Secret World of Sockmosis (facts you never knew you knew about doldrites); The Garden of Mislaid Garments (bizarre creatures that inhabit The Doldrums); Excerpts from the Book of Brutality (how they see us - and maybe why they despise us so much!); Maps of the strange world of the doldrites; a Dust Bunny Snuff cartoon, and more!

Dorothy Rowe Breaking the Bonds

Depression: the imprisoning experience of isolation and fear which comes when we realise that there is a serious discrepancy between what we thought our life to be and what it actually is.From birth onwards we create our own secure worlds of meaning. Challenged seriously enough, these worlds can crumble, leaving us despairing, frightened, isolated, helpless. But we are not helpless. We can resolve to save ourselves by embarking on a journey of understanding and self-acceptance, and finally and for ever break free of the bonds of depression.Dorothy Rowe, the internationally renowned psychologist and expert on depression, brings together in this book what twenty-five years of research have shown her about depression, and shows us how every one of us can take charge of our life and find the way to happiness, hope and freedom.

But then something totally unexpected happens; and we are taken to new places and meet new characters Ð some lovely, some loathsome, and some in between; but all very colourful (even if they are not).

G. Shelling, J. Fraser-Smith In Love But Worlds Apart. Insights, questions, and tips for the intercultural couple

In love but worlds apart is a self-help workbook for today's adult man and woman from two different cultural backgrounds who are considering, or who have already begun, a marriage partnership with each other. To make such a relationship successful, the authors maintain that a feeling of love is not enough. They show how various aspects of cultural differences can be problematic and sometimes fatal to the relationship, unless certain conditions are met. The conditions are, among some, that the partners become reasonably more and more mature (according to the specific definition of maturity offered in this book), willing and able to think and to talk about their cultural differences (such as in manners, values, worldview, holidays and other customs), learn to understand and respect those differences, find solutions to their conflicts and discover enough things they can celebrate and enjoy together. The book helps partners think through vital topics of differences they must face eventually, such as their differing family backgrounds, expectations, tastes, values, worldview, as well as their future country or place of residence. The pervading metaphor throughout the book is of two artists who commit to producing a life-time project of artwork together, using their differing skills, communication styles, colors, craft paint, tools, and canvas. Just as these artists bring their various backgrounds and supplies to the task, each partner in a committed marriage relationship contr...
