The HypLern project has been creating word-for-word translated language material since 2006. The aim of our project is to allow students to start reading the language of their choice immediately, and expand their vocabulary fast. This book is based on three elements to expand your mastery of the language fast and easy. A lot of vocabulary in original non-artificial stories, immediate availability of meaning in immersive interlinear format, and memorizing efficiency through repetition and association by story. Use the following method to attain new vocabulary fast: 1. Read the stories and re-read them until you know most of the words. This is a fast process because there's no lookup time with the unique word-for-word literal plus idiomatic translations, and most words or their root forms occur more than once, so you'll start recognizing them already after the first read. If looking at (yes, not up) our word-for-word translation costs one second, and looking up a word in a dictionary costs a minute, it means our method is a lot faster. 2. Then focus on the remaining words that you still don't know by marking them in the text. Rereading only the paragraphs with difficult words will help you memorize them both by repetition and by association. Where a google or dictionary translation might be missing or misplaced, the manually added literal word-for-word translation is in context and correct conjugation. This means that on top of being much faster, you're learning much more efficiently than with any other method.

The Wolves of Trapper's Bluff is a story of desires, sacrifices, persistency and challenges intertwined within the disharmonized tonalities of life. Moments of desperation conflict with episodes of triumph. Heart-melting emotional outpours succumb under the cold steeliness of grief. Fear-the constant sojourner-permeates throughout and love as a sublime universal bond underpins all the hopes. A soul warming "aha" triumphs at the end-as a testimony to an unbridled courage in faith.

Digha Lodge presents a fairly true rendering of the extraordinary events surrounding the Jamil family, particularly its patriarch, Sayed Jamil Ahmad. When Sayed was just two, he lost his father but remained steadfast to face the challenges of a fatherless childhood. His is the story of a self-made man who gave his children the best a father can givewithout compromising his principles or succumbing to social pressures. Written by Ahmads son, Syed Sabir Jamil, Digha Lodge is the story not only of one family, but also of a nation. It captures decisive moments in both histories, from the creation of Pakistan to its tragic dismemberment and the impact these life-changing events had on the family. They bravely faced the many difficulties and challenges of migration together. It is a story of prides and prejudices, fears and fulfillments, and commendations and condemnations. Psychic and mystical, the stories shared in Digha Lodge are captivating, entertaining, and enlightening, framing a bold narrative of true, untold stories of the Jamil familys lives, losses, and loves.

It is known that poetry makes immortal all that is the best and the most beautiful in the world. Writing poetry is a diligent effort and happiness. During writing poetry I share my vision, emotions, intellect, and express my feelings. Simple words and rhymes as echoes evoke uncanny melody in my heart; different poemsdifferent melodies. Happiness, if a reader likes it. It means that we have the same emotional experience, we think together about the most beautiful and the most poignant moments in our life. Many of poems have been written during the visits definite places and connected with following emotions. Poetry is vocal painting, as painting is silent poetry. In this book I presented verses and related pictures. So the pictures are not silent, they speak. Drawings give opportunity to read by eyesight; poetry for pleasure, beauty of words and thoughts. Most photos and pictures I did myself.

Every day, there are treasures to be discovered by anyone who will honestly come to hear the voice of the Savior in his Word. The Lord Jesus indicates that there is an added blessing for those who will write down the insights he gives by his instruction: Every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old (Matthew 13:52). The poems in this book are the result of going to the Bible each day with an expectation that God has something very valuable to say. That expectation has NEVER been disappointed. Our risen Lord said, I stand at the door and knock. If any man hears My voice and opens the door, I will come into him and will sup with him, and he with Me (Revelation 3:20). This intimate, two-way communion with God is offered to all those who have received the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:12) and thereby have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is of God, that we might know the things that are freely given to us by God (1 Corinthians 2:12). My prayer is that God may use this book for his glory, for the encouragement of his own children, and for the persuasion of those who may yet be awakened to their need of our Savior. Blessed is the man that heareth Me, watching daily at My gates, waiting at the post of My doors (Proverbs 8:34). Heaven is waiting. Dont miss it for the world.

Born in Taiwan, Ang Lee is one of cinema's most versatile and daring directors. His ability to cut across cultural, national, and sexual boundaries has given him recognition in all corners of the world, the ability to work with complete artistic freedom whether inside or outside of Hollywood, and two Academy Awards for Best Director. He has won astounding critical acclaim for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000), which transformed the status of martial arts films across the globe, Brokeback Mountain (2005), which challenged the reception and presentation of homosexuality in mainstream cinema, and Life of Pi (2012), Lee's first use of groundbreaking 3D technology and his first foray into complex spiritual themes. In this volume, the only full-length study of Lee's work, Whitney Crothers Dilley analyzes all of his career to date: Lee's early Chinese trilogy films (including The Wedding Banquet, 1993, and Eat Drink Man Woman, 1994), period drama (Sense and Sensibility, 1995), martial arts (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, 2000), blockbusters (Hulk, 2003), and intimate portraits of wartime psychology, from the Confederate side of the Civil War (Ride with the Devil, 1999) to Japanese-occupied Shanghai (Lust/Caution, 2007). Dilley examines Lee's favored themes such as father/son relationships and intergenerational conflict in The Ice Storm (1997) and Taking Woodstock (2009). By looking at the beginnings of Lee's career, Dilley positions the filmmaker's work within the roots of the Taiwan New Cinema movement, as well as the larger context of world cinema. Using suggestive readings of both gender and identity, this new study not only provides a valuable academic resource but also an enjoyable read that uncovers the enormous appeal of this acclaimed director.
