This Is Just My Face

by Gabourey Sidibe, This Is Just My Face Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download This Is Just My Face books, The Oscar-nominated Precious star and Empire actress delivers a much-awaited memoir which is wise, complex, smart and funny. This Is Just My Face is the whirlwind tour of Gabourey Sidibe’s life so far. In it, we meet her polygamous father, her gifted mother who fed the family by busking on the subway, and the psychic who told her she’d one day be ‘famous like Oprah’. Gabby shows us round the Harlem studio apartment where she grew up, relives the debilitating depression that hit her at college, and reminisces about her first ever job as a phone sex ‘talker’ (less creepy than you’d think). With exhilaratingly honest (and often hilarious) dispatches on friendship, depression, celebrity, haters, fashion, race, and weight, This Is Just My Face will resonate with anyone who has ever felt different - and with anyone who has ever felt inspired to make a dream come true.

Download Der Fall Maurizius books, Dieses eBook: "Der Fall Maurizius" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Ausgelöst wird die Haupthandlung durch die Versuche des ehemaligen Ökonomen und Gutsbesitzers Peter Paul Maurizius aus Hanau, den Staatsanwalt, der im Prozess auf Todesstrafe plädierte, für die Begnadigung seines Sohnes zu gewinnen. Dadurch erfährt Etzel von dem Fall. Der zu lebenslanger Haft Verurteilte sitzt seit mehr als 18 Jahren im Zuchthaus Kressa, weil er seine Ehefrau Elli erschossen haben soll. Da Etzel vom Vater keine Informationen erhält und dadurch, in einer Phase der Auflehnung gegen den autoritären Erziehungsstil, der Anreiz entsteht, einem Geheimnis nachzugehen, nimmt er mit dem alten Maurizius Kontakt auf und fährt heimlich nach Hanau. Dieser erzählt ihm die Vorgeschichte des Mordes: Sein lebenslustiger und verschuldeter 23-jähriger Sohn heiratete die vermögende 38-jährige Witwe Elli Hensolt, geborene Jahn - in Erwartung von achtzigtausend Mark geerbtem Vermögen. Jakob Wassermann (1873-1934) war ein deutsch-jüdischer Schriftsteller. Er zählte zu den produktivsten und populärsten Erzählern seiner Zeit.

Resist And Persist

by Erin Wathen, Resist And Persist Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Resist And Persist books, Over the past few decades, the roles women play in public life have evolved significantly, as have the pressures that come with needing to do it all, have it all, and be all things to all people. And with this progress, misogyny has evolved as well. Today's discrimination is more subtle and indirect, expressed in double standards, microaggressions, and impossible expectations. In other ways, sexism has gotten more brash and repulsive as women have gained power and voice in the mainstream culture. Patriarchy is still sanctioned by every institution: capitalism, government, and evenâ€"maybe especiallyâ€"the church itself. This is perhaps the ultimate ironyâ€"that a religion based on the radical justice and liberation of Jesus' teachings has been the most complicit part of the narrative against women's equality. If we are going to dial back the harmful rhetoric against women and their bodies, the community of faith is going to have to be a big part of the solution. Erin Wathen navigates the complex layers of what it means to be a woman in our time and placeâ€"from the language we use to the clothes that we wear to the unseen and unspoken assumptions that challenge our full personhood at every turn. Resist and Persist reframes the challenges to women's equality in light of our current culture and political climate, providing a new language of resistance that can free women and men from the pernicious power of patriarchy.

Download Sebastian Und Das Grosse Geld books, Erst nach dem Tod Graf von Ludins erfährt Astrid Schumann, dass sie mit ihm verwandt gewesen ist. Zur Testamentseröffnung wird sie auf sein Schloss nach Berchtesgaden gebeten. Außer Astrid gibt es noch weitere Verwandte. Von Anfang an sind sie der jungen Frau unsympathisch. Dagegen befreundet sie sich sofort mit dem Bernhardiner des Verstorbenen, den die anderen am liebsten ins nächste Tierheim stecken würden.Graf von Ludin hat in seinem Testament bestimmt, dass sich Sebastian sein neues Herrchen oder Frauchen selbst aussuchen darf. Außer seiner Dienerschaft, die mit reichlichen Legaten von ihm bedacht wurde, hat der Graf für Sebastians Unterhalt fünfzigtausend Euro festgesetzt. Astrid soll das Schloss und einen Teil des Vermögens erben. Das restliche Vermögen hat der Verstorbene auf seinem Besitz versteckt und bestimmt, daß der Schatz dem Finder zufällt. Einzig und allein Sebastian kennt das Versteck.Kurz nach der Testamentseröffnung trifft ein weiterer Erbe ein, Richard von Ludin. Astrid und er verlieben sich Hals über Kopf ineinander. Beide sind mehr darauf erpicht, so viel Zeit wie möglich miteinander zu verbringen, als den Schatz zu finden. Die übrigen Erben schlagen sich bei der Suche nach dem versteckten Vermögen allerdings fast die Köpfe ein. Jeder von ihnen umschmeichelt Sebastian und hofft, durch ihn ans Ziel zu gelangen.Als auch noch Astrids früherer Freund auf Schloss Ludin auftaucht, beginnt die Situation zu eskalieren.Das Buch enthält Informationen über das Tierpflegennest Backnang e.V.L e s e p r o b e...Von meinen Verwandten hat mich bis jetzt einzig und allein Astrid Schumann nicht enttäuscht. Auch wenn ich es bewusst unterlassen habe, mich mit ihr in Verbindung zu setzen, so habe ich sie doch aus der Ferne beobachtet. Ich bin mit ihr sehr zufrieden und ich weiß, dass Schloss Ludin bei ihr in den besten Händen sein wird. Sie besitzt, was scheinbar den männlichen Mitgliedern meiner Familie zu fehlen scheint, nicht nur gesunden Menschenverstand, sondern auch Stil und Mitgefühl mit anderen. Sie...""Das gibt es nicht! Das ist empörend!" Bernhard von Ludin sprang auf und wollte sich auf den Anwalt stürzen, stolperte aber über seinen Stock, den er in der Aufregung total vergessen hatte. Er schlug hart mit dem Ellbogen auf dem Schreibtisch auf. "Verdammt noch mal!" stieß er hervor und ließ sich mit schmerzverzerrtem Gesicht in den Sessel fallen.Astrid saß wie betäubt da. Sie hatte keine Sekunde damit gerechnet, das Schloss zu erben. Fassungslos blickte sie den Anwalt an, hörte kaum, dass er noch vorlas, was für Ländereien zum Schloss gehörten und wie viel Geld ihr hinterlassen wurde."Jetzt frage ich mich, was da noch für uns bleibt", sagte Mark-Anton verbittert."Ich bin noch nicht fertig, Herr Weingärtner!" Dr. Kronwald ließ den Blick wieder über die Erben gleiten. "Wenn Graf Ludin nicht an Sie und die übrigen männlichen Nachkommen gedacht hätte, wären Sie nicht zur Testamentseröffnung geladen worden.""Ihnen dürfte klar sein, daß ich dieses Testament anfechten lasse." Bernhard von Ludin kam auf seinen Stock gestützt aus dem Sessel hoch. "Es ist...""Dürfte ich das Testament weiter verlesen?" fragte Dr. Kronwald eisig. Er richtete seine Augen so streng auf den alten Herrn, dass dieser im Sessel regelrecht zusammensackte. ""...Da ich, wie ich schon sagte, soviel Freude an meinen Verwandten hatte, habe ich mir etwas ausgedacht, um auch sie zu erfreuen", las er weiter vor. "Den habgierigen Augen meines lieben Bernhards wird es nicht entgangen sein, dass die Goldfiguren aus der Vitrine im Arbeitszimmer fehlen, auch sonst habe ich mir die Freiheit genommen, die wertvollsten Dinge von ihren angestammten Plätzen zu entfernen und an einem geheimen Ort zu verstecken. Desgleichen ist mit dem größten Teil meines Vermögens geschehen. Ich habe fast meinen ganzen geldlichen Besitz, bis auf die Summe, die ich Astrid Schumann hinterlasse und die übrigen Legate, in Gold angelegt.

Trouble Is A Friend Of Mine

by Stephanie Tromly, Trouble Is A Friend Of Mine Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Trouble Is A Friend Of Mine books, Shortlisted for the Peters Book of the Year. Preparing to survive a typical day of being Digby's friend wasn't that different from preparing to survive the Apocalypse When Digby first shows up on her doorstep, Zoe Webster is not impressed. He's rude, he's smart, and he doesn't take 'no' for an answer. But before she knows it, Digby has dragged her into a series of hilarious and dangerous situations all related to an investigation into the kidnapping of a girl from their high school. A kidnapping that may be connected to the tragic disappearance of his own sister eight years ago. Peppered with razor-sharp dialogue, this is a romance that is decidedly unromantic, a crime novel where catching the crook isn't the only hook, and a debut novel you won't forget.

Believe Me

by Yolanda Hadid, Believe Me Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Believe Me books, From the star of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills comes an emotional and eye opening behind-the-scenes look at her descent into uncovering the mystery of chronic Lyme disease. In early 2011, Yolanda was struck by mysterious symptoms including brain fog, severe exhaustion, migraines and more. Over the months and years that followed, she went from being an outspoken, multi-tasking, hands-on mother of three, reality TV star, and social butterfly, to a woman who spent most of her time in bed. Yolanda was turned inside out by some of the country’s top hospitals and doctors, but due to the lack of definitive diagnostic testing, she landed in a dark maze of conflicting medical opinions, where many were quick to treat her symptoms but could never provide clear answers to their possible causes. In this moving, behind the scenes memoir, Yolanda Hadid opens up in a way she has never been able to in the media before. Suffering from late stage Lyme, a disease that is an undeniable epidemic and more debilitating than anyone realizes, Yolanda had to fight with everything she had to hold onto her life. While her struggle was lived publicly, it impacted her privately in every aspect of her existence, affecting her family, friends and professional prospects. Her perfect marriage became strained and led to divorce. It was the strong bond with her children, Gigi, Bella and Anwar, that provided her greatest motivation to fight through the darkest days of her life. Hers is an emotional narrative and all-important read for anyone unseated by an unexpected catastrophe. With candor, authenticity and an unwavering inner strength, Yolanda reveals intimate details of her journey crisscrossing the world to find answers for herself and two of her children who suffer from Lyme and shares her tireless research into eastern and western medicine. Believe Me is an inspiring lesson in the importance of having courage and hope, even in those moments when you think you can’t go on.

Their answers are inspiring human stories of success and courage, love and pain, redemption and generosity. From well-known activists, artists, and innovators to everyday women whose lives are no less exceptional for that, each woman shares her unique replies to questions like "What really matters to you?" and "What would you change in the world if you could?" Interviewees include conservation and animal welfare activist Jane Goodall, actor and human rights advocate Alfre Woodard, and Nobel Peace laureate Rigoberta Menchu, along with those who are making a difference behind the scenes around the world, such as Marion Wright Edelman, head of the Children's Defense Fund. Each interview is accompanied by a photographic portrait, resulting in a volume that is compelling in word and image—and global in its scope and resonance. This landmark book is published to coincide with an immersive traveling exhibition and an interactive website, building on this remarkable, ever-evolving project. With responses ranging from uplifting to heartbreaking, these women offer gifts of empowerment and strength—inviting us to bring positive change at a time when so many are fighting for basic freedom and equality.
