Ukiah Oregon is quickly becoming one of the greatest trackers in the country. Some call it luck—those closest to him call it instinct. Abandoned as a child, he was found running with a wolf pack. Now, in his job as a private investigator, he puts his nose to the ground to track down missing persons and fugitives from the law. A heightened sense of smell and taste—plus a photographic memory—make him an invaluable asset to his partner. But when Ukiah kills a crazed young woman in self-defense, he draws the attention of the FBI’s most wanted: a violent and elusive gang known as the Pack. And it won’t be long before Ukiah discovers just how much he has in common with the Pack: a bond of brotherhood, blood...and destiny.

Nutrition and Sensation explores how sensations can impact nutrition. It unravels the hidden sensory universe acting to control our appetite and nutritional desires. The sensory influence on food choice is ubiquitous. Whether it is the color of soda, the viscosity of maple syrup, or the aroma of chocolate, the sensory experience fuels consumption. The book covers the impact of olfaction, gustation, retronasal olfaction, vision, vestibular function, hearing, and somatosensory and tactile nature on nutrition. It also discusses the use of the sensory system to treat nutritional disorders including obesity. Special attention is given to the mechanisms surrounding smell and taste and how they can influence satiety and weight. This book is a fascinating read for anyone looking for deeper understanding of the link between the sensory system and nutrition.

By piecing the lives of selected individuals into a grand mosaic, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Daniel J. Boorstin explores the development of artistic innovation over 3,000 years. A hugely ambitious chronicle of the arts that Boorstin delivers with the scope that made his Discoverers a national bestseller. Even as he tells the stories of such individual creators as Homer, Joyce, Giotto, Picasso, Handel, Wagner, and Virginia Woolf, Boorstin assembles them into a grand mosaic of aesthetic and intellectual invention. In the process he tells us not only how great art (and great architecture and philosophy) is created, but where it comes from and how it has shaped and mirrored societies from Vedic India to the twentieth-century United States.

Alien Hearts was the last book that Guy de Maupassant finished before his death at the early age of forty-three. It is the most original and psychologically penetrating of his several novels, and the one in which he attains a truly tragic perception of the wounded human heart. André Mariolle is a rich, handsome, gifted young man who cannot settle on what to do with himself. Madame de Burne, a glacially dazzling beauty, wants Mariolle to attend her exclusive salon for artists, composers, writers, and other intellectuals. At first Mariolle keeps his distance, but then he hits on the solution to all his problems: caring for nothing in particular, he will devote himself to being in love; Madame de Burne will be his everything. Soon lover and beloved are equally lost within a hall of mirrors of their common devising. Richard Howard’s new English translation of this complex and brooding novel—the first in more than a hundred years—reveals the final, unexpected flowering of a great French realist’s art.

“Rebecca West’s magnum opus . . . one of the great books of our time.” —The New Yorker Written on the brink of World War II, Rebecca West’s classic examination of the history, people, and politics of Yugoslavia illuminates a region that is still a focus of international concern. A magnificent blend of travel journal, cultural commentary, and historical insight, Black Lamb and Grey Falcon probes the troubled history of the Balkans and the uneasy relationships among its ethnic groups. The landscape and the people of Yugoslavia are brilliantly observed as West untangles the tensions that rule the country’s history as well as its daily life.

Ukiah’s abilities are put to the test when police request his assistance in tracking a missing boy who has a habit of getting lost and being found in unusual places. The authorities fear that the kid’s latest disappearance may be linked to a series of kidnappings. Then suddenly, Ukiah finds himself under scrutiny by Homeland Defense. Agents found a member of the cult known as the Temple of New Reason with photographs of Ukiah. The government suspects that a connection exists between the sect and Ukiah, one even he can’t identify. But before Ukiah can investigate the cult’s interest in him, his own son is abducted. Now, with government agents watching his every move, he must track down the kidnappers—and pray that they’re not the alien Ontongard looking for revenge.

The Preacher as Liturgical Artist

Reads: 7215663


Trygve Johnson invites us to consider a new metaphor of identity of The Preacher as Liturgical Artist. This identity draws on a theology of communion and the doctrine of the vicarious humanity of Christ to relocate the preacher's identity in the creative and ongoing ministry of Jesus Christ. Johnson argues the metaphorical association of the preacher and artist understood within the artistic ministry of Jesus Christ frees the full range of human capacities, including the imagination to bear upon the arts of Christian proclamation. The Preacher as Liturgical Artist connects preachers to the person and work of Jesus Christ, whose own double ministry took the raw materials of the human condition and offered them back to the Father in a redemptive and imaginative fashion through the Holy Spirit. It is in the large creative ministry of Jesus Christ that preachers find their creativity freed to proclaim the gospel bodily within the context of the liturgical work of God's people.

Usually someone’s life story starts with chapter 1, but not in this case. When many women become slaves in the world even before they were born and they are raped before they have a chance to become a young woman and are uprooted the day the age of a teen ends to become a full grown-up, they will not have any chapter. Especially in the third world, for them, chapter 0 comes to life before their life starts and stays with them until they are old and vanish from this world. But sometimes it takes only one hero to come in your dream to pull you out of your hurtful childhood and help you to find a way to the healing future, and you decide to fully immune your soul and spirit and protect the childhood of many other children. That is when you know that you are on the path to be able to start your chapter with number 1—a chapter that you can write about, even if it hurts to write. You can tell the world that you have your own head to write your own destiny you are proud to have. That is when you are determined to go extra miles to write the history of your lost childhood. The word destiny in Farsi means “head wrote.” How do you write one’s own destiny if there is nothing to put in the head in the first place, I wonder? In many countries, the practice of raising slaves is still active in some villages and even in some cities. And that gives birth to ill society. Ill society doesn’t stay still; it wanders around the globe to collapse on noble society. That’s when victimization claws women back over and over again, even when you are in a civilized country. Because the mind and the body both are equally damaged. Perhaps the reason for me to become a volunteer for a woman who was running for election in 2007 was born in my heart when I was seven years old and my grandma gave me a pen for a New Year’s present and said, “You too can write!” And I kept the dream of writing about women in my mind since I was a little child who stood up to walk and was trained to walk a few steps behind the brothers. So I think starting to write my side of story with chapter 1 will be a little confusing for everyone. And I know it is impossible for a civilized world to imagine not having rights. But even in civilized countries, still many people think there is no such thing as an invisible chapter, or if they hear of it, they will say, “Who cares, let it be, it is on the other side of the earth, not our problem.” So they decide to see this system of women slavery as an invisible society that is not a great threat to the society of our future generation.
