Silvery tones of a scented garden designed for moonlight can add new dimensions to summer evenings on your patio. And careful choices of herbs can yield shades of burnished bronzes and mauves in the garden throughout the rigors of winter. These are just two samples of the information contained in more than fifty plans for novice and professional gardener alike. Herbs are already well known for their abilities to flavor, scent, dye, and medicate; in addition, when properly integrated with their surroundings they can greatly enhance the landscape. The plans offered here represent a wide range of possibilities--historic and private, large and small, modest and elaborate--that are easily adapted to one's needs. Designs created by landscape architects and members of the Herb Society of America were redrafted especially for this book. Each plan offers dimensions, structural details for paths, walls, hedges, and decorating elements in addition to full commentary and a plant list. A selection of the Garden Book Club and the Architects and Planners Book Club.
After her return from a few days off-world, Jane finds that things are not quite the way she left them.
Corporate managers have hired zombies to fill open positions (They work for nearly nothing and they don't need healthcare, because they're dead.) But zombies are the least of Jane's problems! Dorrie signs her up for a lesbian soccer league, Jane's vintage VW van is haunted by her dead uncle, Dorothy has a near death experience and Jill gets waylaid by a psychoactive toad!
This classic of fencing literature is not just a how-to manual designed to teach the routine movements of the sport. Written by a master swordsman who competed professionally and whose credentials include teaching at Rome's Italian Fencing Masters' School and Vienna's Austro-Hungarian Central Fencing School, as well as private instruction in Paris, the book divulges the reasons behind every aspect of positioning, invitation, engagement, thrusting, parrying, counterparrying, tempo, feints, and ripostes. Inherent in every word is the author's great love of the sport and his appreciation for the artistry of the foil. In the last section of this book, first published in English in 1933, Barbasetti presents a short history of fencing--from the heroic times of Homer to the Middle Ages--and a useful glossary of fencing terms in English, Italian, French, and German. Clear b&w line drawings illustrate correct stances and actions while several plates capture the drama of the sport as depicted by other artists.
Cuando tenía 18 años, fuerzas militares irrumpieron en su casa y se llevaron a sus padres. Luego, secuestraron a su hermana de 15 años y a su cuñada. Su hermano Sergio estaba haciendo la conscripción en la ESMA y nunca más volvió. En una noche, la del 15 de julio de 1976, Daniel Tarnopolsky perdió a toda su familia y se convirtió en un sobreviviente. Se exilió primero en Chile, después en Francia y en Israel hasta que el regreso de la democracia le ofreció garantías y fuerzas para volver al país. Su búsqueda nunca cesó. Su lucha lo llevó a ganar un juicio sin precedentes en el 2004, por el cual el ex almirante Emilio Massera debió pagarle una indemnización. Nada de esto le devolvió a su familia.
Tardó en encontrar algo de paz. Buscó, como muchos, en la religión un lugar de contención y de alivio; buscó también en videntes y médiums alguna respuesta para poder recrear la historia de aquella noche en la que la violencia lo dejó solo. Necesitaba entender, reconstruir desde las ruinas. Este libro reproduce todas las búsquedas de Daniel Tarnopolsky: la búsqueda de justicia, la de su propia identidad y la de sus desaparecidos. Betina sin aparecer es la historia de una familia forzada a la ausencia y es también el relato de la reconstrucción de la vida del único sobreviviente de esta tragedia. Y es, sobre todo, un grito de esperanza para comprender dónde está Betina.
Red Thunder is a stand-alone, SAS style, action-packed adventure thriller designed to become Book One of a proposed trilogy. Warning: This Special Forces, SAS themed action and adventure thriller does contain scenes of violence, torture and some bad language from the outset and is designed for an adult audience. Introducing Jack Regan, the brand new character for the modern age. Jack is a six-foot-two, thirty-five-year-old, blond-haired, blue-eyed former member of the SAS and British Parachute Regiment, now recruited to the British Secret Intelligence Service, MI6 (SIS). Plot: Sent to North Korea to deliver a package to one of MI6's moles, what is supposed to be an easy job suddenly turns into a complete nightmare. Jack is bumped by the Secret Police, his contact ruthly murdered, and now faces imminent execution by the Korean authorities.
Only his handler back in London can save him. With London denying any knowledge of Jack Regan, their agent is abandoned and left to fend for himself in the political concentration camps, torture chambers and law gulags. With London believing their man is dead, Red Thunder can continue uninterrupted.
Little does London know, Jack Regan is still alive. Worse, Jack Regan has escaped.
After six years of being held in a North Korean rat-hole, Jack is heading home, and he wants some answers. While incarcerated at the hands of his cruel communist masters, Jack has discovered SIS's dirty secret. He was always meant to die! Answers alone though, are not enough for a man who has been tortured, betrayed and left to die by his own people. Jack also wants revenge. He wants those responsible to pay. SIS wants him dead before Red Thunder is compromised. Many lives hang in the balance and political alliances are at risk of collapse if Regan manages to get home. SIS will stop at nothing to eliminate the problem. Regan will stop at nothing to find out the truth. In the murky world of espionage, secrets are guarded jealously, and Red Thunder guarded more jealously than most.
