An Act to Incorporate the London and Canadian Loan and Agency Company (Limited) (Classic Reprint): Allan Napier Macnab
This volume, using multiple methods, seeks to bring together the best scholarship and insightâJewish and Christian, past and presentâthat has contributed to our understanding and appreciation of the biblical book of Ruth. As a feminist commentary, it is particularly sensitive to issues of relationship and inclusion, power and agency. In addition to the voices of the primary co-authors, Alice Laffey and Mahri Leonard-Fleckman, the volume incorporates and integrates important contributing voices from diverse contemporary social contexts and geographical locations. In sum, the commentary seeks to allow Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz to speak again for the first time.
Glasgow-based creative agency Goodd Ltd. joined forces with some of the most talented artists and designers in Scotland to create Visual Objects for the Home, a collection of made-to-order designs intended to engage whatever context they may eventually call home. For Goodd’s VOFH project, Scottish-born designers Dean Brown and Callum Brown contributed Shrines, a “micro-furniture” series that invites users to incorporate and venerate objects of personal significance—a book, a flower, a bottle of wine—in everyday rituals. The Shrine Cabinet includes an oak frame, a blown glass lamp, a mini-pedestal, and an enclosed storage space, accented with hand-painted graphics by UK-based art director Namyoung An in navy, turquoise, and yellow.
Dick Thornby is not Hollywood´s idea of a spy. In his rough and tumble job there are no tailored Italian suits, no bimbos eager to please, and no massive underground fortresses built by evil overlords seeking world domination - just an endless series of sinister threats to the safety and security of the billions of mundane citizens of the planet. Sure, Dick´s tough and he knows a few tricks to help him get out of a tight spot, even if his boss accuses him of over-reliance on an abundance of explosives. But he´s also got a mortgage, a wife upset by his frequent absences on ´´business´´ trips, and an increasingly alienated teen-age son who spends way too much time playing in gaming worlds on the computer. When a young computer expert back at the Philadelphia headquarters for The Subsidiary, an international espionage agency created in the aftermath of 9/11, discovers that bad guys are involved in a vast conspiracy, Dick is forced to partner with the espionage neophyte to battle evil on multiple fronts, leading to a final confrontation that incorporates real-world conspiracy theories and cutting-edge technology. In the end, Dick can save his partner, save his marriage, save his son, or save the world, but he can´t do it all. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bruce Pilkenton.
