«Tout le monde se demande si la poule fut là avant l'oeuf ou l'oeuf avant la poule, mais Suzie s'en souvient très bien, il y eut d'abord l'oeuf, qu'elle mangea avec de la mayonnaise, puis la poule, qui fut servie avec des frites. Comme dessert, elle prendra une glace.»
I do not know what your definition of a man is, but without exploration, neither do you. We are taught what it is to be a man, sometimes by women or grown boys. We are shown what we should act like every time we turn on the TV or listen to music. We follow the same grown boys who follow the same messages. We are taught to believe we’re becoming men based off how well we emulate others who mirror what they see. The Earth was once said to be flat, and everyone alive knew that to be true.
The Earth being flat was not an opinion, it was a fact. Further examination, research and thought proved that, and count other “facts” to be wrong. Similarly, we all think things to be true, and live by them without considering that we have been taught wrong. This is an opportunity for that consideration. There are 52 different topics presented. Each topic shows an example of how a boy might behave, VS a man in the same situation. This book is designed in a way unlike most books. It is designed in a way where you have the power. Insight given in this book welcomes criticism and invites readers to come to their own conclusions, instead of traditional readings that present theories or opinions as fact. This is not an attempt to have you agree with me, but rather have you become more secure in what your definition of a man is.
كتاب أشعاري الرابع اسمه "أنا خائف". أخاف فيه من أصدقائي وأعدائي والمرض والماضي وصباح غد ونفسي أنا نفسي ومن كل العالم. لي خمسة كتب وأخاف، لا أزال، من الكتابة. لا أعرف كيف استطعت أن أضم الحرف للحرف
O Bitcoin é uma forma de dinheiro, assim como o real, dólar ou euro, com a diferença de ser puramente digital e não ser emitido por nenhum governo. O seu valor é determinado livremente pelos indivíduos no mercado. Você lembra como a internet e o e-mail revolucionaram a comunicação? Antes, para enviar uma mensagem a uma pessoa do outro lado da Terra, era necessário fazer isso pelos correios. Nada mais antiquado.
Você dependia de um intermediário para, fisicamente, entregar uma mensagem. Pois é, retornar a essa realidade é inimaginável. O que o e-mail fez com a informação, o Bitcoin fará com o dinheiro. Com o Bitcoin você pode transferir fundos de A para B em qualquer parte do mundo sem jamais precisar confiar em um terceiro para essa simples tarefa. O Bitcoin é a maior inovação tecnológica desde a internet, é revolucionário, sem precedentes e tem o potencial de mudar o mundo de uma forma jamais vista. À moeda, ele é o futuro. Ao avanço da liberdade individual, é uma esperança e uma grata novidade.
Today, there are more than 100,000 Lithuanians in Chicago, making the city home to the greatest concentration of Lithuanians outside of the country itself. Their presence in Chicago began in 1834 and drastically increased during the 20th century as immigrants and their descendants sought work in the stockyards and other industries. Lithuanians in Chicago were dedicated to celebrating and preserving their unique culture, evident in its churches, schools, museums, and community centers in neighborhoods such as Bridgeport and Marquette Park. They also maintained ties to the homeland and played an important role in Lithuania’s struggles for independence throughout the 20th century. Many prominent Lithuanian Americans are from the “City of the Big Shoulders,” including football great Dick Butkus, actor John C. Reilly, and director Robert Zemeckis. The former president of Lithuania, Valdas Adamkus, was a resident of Chicagoland for nearly 50 years.

This deeply insightful ethnography explores the healing power of caring and intimacy in a small, closely bonded Apostolic congregation during Botswana's HIV/AIDS pandemic.
"Death in a Church of Life" paints a vivid picture of how members of the Baitshepi Church make strenuous efforts to sustain loving relationships amid widespread illness and death. Over the course of long-term fieldwork, Frederick Klaits discovered Baitshepi's distinctly maternal ethos and the "spiritual" kinship embodied in the church's nurturing fellowship practice. Klaits shows that for Baitshepi members, Christian faith is a form of moral passion that counters practices of divination and witchcraft with redemptive hymn singing, prayer, and the use of therapeutic substances. An online audio annex makes available examples of the church members' preaching and song.
