Man should examine with his eyes for what and whom he likes to be used. The night whispers soothingly until early morning, this with all, what is needed for life and threatens it. Therefore, take the early morning view over the open fields. The fresh seed will greet you from the grooves. After the view take the path and way in the twilight that the spicy smell of the wet soil can touch you. There will be many hot summers with the days of testing for meaning and value. Put the foot firmly on the ground and into life, ask yourself what the new day desires. Then send your ear to the singing birds and hear from their songs the timeless song that accompanies you on your walk. The beauty of the shapes you see are the young people from the villages countryside. With the years the skin gets wrinkled, it affects not only the foreheads and the hands. The word you said in the first view scored the meaning fully and met the mind. The untold story goes further, it brings the trodden-down tracks together. Go the way you have started and let you be taught from what you see. The time will come and the year will end before you reach the way back with half the load. Der Mensch prüfe es mit eigenem Auge, für was und wen er sich verbrauchen will. Gärend raunt die Nacht zum frühen Morgen mit dem, was das Leben braucht und es bedroht. Drum nimm den frühen Morgenblick über Feld und Flur, dass dich aus den Furchen grüßt die frische Saat. Nach dem Blick nimm Weg und Pfad im Dämmerschein, lass dich berühren vom Gewürz der nassen Scholle. Es wird noch viele heiße Sommer geben mit den Tagen der Prüfung nach Sinn und Wert. Setz den Fuß fest auf den Boden und ins Leben, stell dir die Frage, was der neue Tag begehrt. Dann schick dein Ohr den singenden Vögeln entgegen und hör aus ihren Gesängen das zeitlose Lied, das dich bei deinem Flurgang begleiten will. Die Schönheit der Gestalten, die du siehst, sind die jungen Menschen aus den Dörfern. Faltig legt sich mit den Jahren die Haut nicht nur an den Stirnen und den Händen. Das Wort, das du beim Anblick sagtest, griff die Bedeutung und ergriff das Gemüt. Die Geschichte geht unerzählt noch weiter, wie sie die ausgetretenen Wege zusammenführt. So geh den Weg, den du begonnen hast, und lass dich von dem, was du siehst, belehren. Die Zeit wird kommen, und das Jahr wird enden, bevor du auf den Rückweg triffst mit halber Last.
Since the Stonewall Riots in 1969, the politics of sexual identity in America have drastically transformed. It’s almost old news that recent generations of Americans have grown up in a culture more accepting of out lesbians and gay men, seen the proliferation of LGBTQ media representation, and witnessed the attainment of a range of legal rights for same-sex couples. But the changes wrought by a so-called “post-closeted culture” have not just affected the queer community—heterosexuals are also in the midst of a sea change in how their sexuality plays out in everyday life. In Straights, James Joseph Dean argues that heterosexuals can neither assume the invisibility of gays and lesbians, nor count on the assumption that their own heterosexuality will go unchallenged. The presumption that we are all heterosexual, or that there is such a thing as ‘compulsory heterosexuality,’ he claims, has vanished. Based on 60 in-depth interviews with a diverse group of straight men and women, Straights explores how straight Americans make sense of their sexual and gendered selves in this new landscape, particularly with an understanding of how race does and does not play a role in these conceptions. Dean provides a historical understanding of heterosexuality and how it was first established, then moves on to examine the changing nature of masculinity and femininity and, most importantly, the emergence of a new kind of heterosexuality—notably, for men, the metrosexual, and for women, the emergence of a more fluid sexuality. The book also documents the way heterosexuals interact and form relationships with their LGBTQ family members, friends, acquaintances, and coworkers. Although homophobia persists among straight individuals, Dean shows that being gay-friendly or against homophobic expressions is also increasingly common among straight Americans. A fascinating study, Straights provides an in-depth look at the changing nature of sexual expression in America.

The authors concentrate on masculinities in contemporary film, literature and diverse forms of popular culture and argue that the subversion of traditional images of masculinity is both a source of gender contestation and may equally be susceptible to assimilation by new hegemonic configurations of masculinity.
Recent years have seen a dramatic upsurge of interest in the connections between sexualities, space and place. Drawing established and 'founding' figures of the field together with emerging authors, this innovative volume offers a broad, interdisciplinary and international overview of the geographies of sexualities. Incorporating a discussion of queer geographies, Geographies of Sexualities engages with cutting edge agendas and challenges the orthodoxies within geography regarding spatialities and sexualities. It contains original and previously unpublished material that spans the often separated areas of theory, practices and politics. This innovative volume offers a trans-disciplinary engagement with the spatialities of sexualities, intersecting discussions of sexualities with issues such as development, race, gender and other forms of social difference.
This work by the French mathematician Henri Poincaré, translated into English in 1913, elegantly expounds his philosophy of science.
A leading Washington journalist argues that gay marriage is the best way to preserve and protect society's most essential institution Two people meet and fall in love. They get married, they become upstanding members of their community, they care for each other when one falls ill, they grow old together. What's wrong with this picture? Nothing, says Jonathan Rauch, and that's the point. If the two people are of the same sex, why should this chain of events be any less desirable? Marriage is more than a bond between individuals; it also links them to the community at large. Excluding some people from the prospect of marriage not only is harmful to them, but is also corrosive of the institution itself. The controversy over gay marriage has reached a critical point in American political life as liberals and conservatives have begun to mobilize around this issue, pro and con. But no one has come forward with a compelling, comprehensive, and readable case for gay marriage-until now. Jonathan Rauch, one of our most original and incisive social commentators, has written a clear and honest manifesto explaining why gay marriage is important-even crucial-to the health of marriage in America today. Rauch grounds his argument in commonsense, mainstream values and confronting the social conservatives on their own turf. Gay marriage, he shows, is a "win-win-win" for strengthening the bonds that tie us together and for remaining true to our national heritage of fairness and humaneness toward all.

Poker is serious – and big – business these days. Just take a look at the number of gaming and gambling sites offering variants on the game and the amount of media coverage and airtime it gets. It seems to be a game where you can get rich quick – but you can easily lose a considerable amount of money in a short time also; especially if you are not experienced and don’t really understand what you are doing. This compilation takes a look at the history of poker and the different variations of the game that can be played for money or pleasure. It also features more serious analysis of strategies in playing and betting on poker including the mathematical and psychological aspects of a game that is highly susceptible to both of these approaches. If you are considering taking up poker as a hobby or as gambling – this is as good a starting point as any to get you up to speed on the sorts of information and knowledge you will need to participate with even a modicum of success.
Encamped within the limits of experience and "authenticity," critics today often stake out their positions according to race and ethnicity, sexuality and gender, and vigilantly guard the boundaries against any incursions into their privileged territory. In this book, Michael Awkward raids the borders of contemporary criticism to show how debilitating such "protectionist" stances can be and how much might be gained by crossing our cultural boundaries. From Spike Lee's She's Gotta Have It to Michael Jackson's physical transmutations, from Toni Morrison's Song of Solomon to August Wilson's Fences, from male scholars' investments in feminism to white scholars' in black texts—Awkward explores cultural moments that challenge the exclusive critical authority of race and gender. In each instance he confronts the question: What do artists, scholars, and others concerned with representations of Afro-American life make of the view that gender, race, and sexuality circumscribe their own and others' lives and narratives? Throughout he demonstrates the perils and merits of the sort of "boundary crossing" this book ultimately makes: a black male feminism. In pursuing a black male feminist criticism, Awkward's study acknowledges the complexities of interpretation in an age when a variety of powerful discourses have proliferated on the subject of racial, gendered, and sexual difference; at the same time, it identifies this proliferation as an opportunity to negotiate seemingly fixed cultural and critical positions.
A form of poker that continues to grow in popularity is Omaha eight-or-better high-low split, which is often abbreviated as "Omaha/8" in print. You?ll find an Omaha/8 game in virtually every cardroom--brick and mortar or on the Internet. Yet, Omaha/8 is widely misunderstood. As a result, better players stand to make a significant profit in the game. This book provides a much needed and useful tool for poker players interested in improving their game.
Drug use by adolescents is usually viewed as the result of personal vulnerability to peer pressures and drug pushers. This book provides a new perspective, which is sociological rather than epidemiological, understanding patterns of drug taking in the context of ordinary social interaction. In this social worlds analysis, adolescents' own concerns with boredom, depression, social identity, friendship, access to drugs, self-control and folk pharmacology replace the professionals' focus on deviant behaviour.
