Biuro kotów znalezionych to opowieść o życiu i rozterkach współczesnej kociary - od pierwszego stopnia zakocenia do założenia własnego domu tymczasowego.
Autorka, u zarania tego przedsięwzięcia, nie była kocim ekspertem. Owszem, koty lubiła i była wrażliwa na ich niedolę – nie miała jednak pojęcia jak funkcjonują schroniska, fundacje czy azyle dla zwierząt. Wiele musiała się nauczyć. Za sprawą innych, bardziej doświadczonych wolontariuszy, kociąt „na odchowanie” oraz Szarej, Ośki i Artura zostaje wprowadzona w tajniki bycia łapaczką, karmicielką, kocią opiekunką, zastępczą mamą. I pomyśleć, że wszystko zaczęło się od kichnięcia...
Chicago, 1899. A city known for vice and violence welcomes a new show to town: the Daughters of Aphrodite Lyric Opera. Despite being branded "obscene" by the press and civic leaders - or perhaps partly because of it - their performances are a hit. Almost 18 and not yet married, Constance defies the will of her parents and sneaks out to see for herself what all the fuss is about. She will come to discover that the troupe's leader, the fear, gifted and enigmatic Victoria da Vinci, is a woman with big ideas, big secrets and a complex past. Constance soon finds herself immersed in a world of danger and mystery . . . and must make a choice. 50% historical fiction, 25% sci-fi and 25% adventure-fantasy, Dicing Time for Gladness captures the conflicted spirit of turn-of-the-century America in a time of bound optimism and deep uncertainty.
Al-Qur’aan, the main source of the Islamic faith, is a book believed by Muslims, to be of completely Divine origin. Muslims also believe that it contains guidance for all mankind. Since the message of the Qur’aan is believed to be for all times, it should be relevant to every age. Does the Qur’aan pass this test? In this booklet, I intend to give an objective analysis of the Muslim belief regarding the Divine origin of the Qur’aan, in the light of established scientific discoveries.

Between 1880 and 1915, thirteen million Italians left their homeland, launching the largest emigration from any country in recorded world history.
As the young Italian state struggled to adapt to the exodus, it pioneered the establishment of a "global nation"--an Italy abroad cemented by ties of culture, religion, ethnicity, and economics. In this wide-ranging work, Mark Choate examines the relationship between the Italian emigrants, their new communities, and their home country. The state maintained that emigrants were linked to Italy and to one another through a shared culture. Officials established a variety of programs to coordinate Italian communities worldwide. They fostered identity through schools, athletic groups, the Dante Alighieri Society, the Italian Geographic Society, the Catholic Church, Chambers of Commerce, and special banks to handle emigrant remittances. But the projects aimed at binding Italians together also raised intense debates over priorities and the emigrants' best interests. Did encouraging loyalty to Italy make the emigrants successful at integrating? Were funds better spent on supporting the home nation rather than sustaining overseas connections? In its probing discussion of immigrant culture, transnational identities, and international politics, this fascinating book not only narrates the grand story of Italian emigration but also provides important background to immigration debates that continue to this day.
