Omnipotence for the Millions is best described as a weeping man's bedroom farce, a tale of infuriatingly ineluctable agape and abortive misanthropy, of a love-hate triangle of rivalrous comrades and wives, of human intersubjectivity conceived as a world wherein everyone is constantly enacting exasperatingly ambiguous atrocities on everyone else and everyone's kind of pissed off about it probably but nobody's quite sure. It is the story of a certain Mr. Smithers and his close associate and rival Mr. Smith, and their unfortunate intertwining in the fast-paced back-slappingly fulfilling industry of late night self-help infomercial production. Smithers’ mercy-begging detestation of his putative buddy is, it would seem, no match for the latter's obliviously cheerful ability to just not get it. At various points Smithers is called upon to serve not only as Smith's best friend, his employer, his wife’s lover, his business partner and his archrival, but also as his teacher (in a formal classroom setting) and as his valet. The two men, like all two men, are tacitly struggling for the same quantum of virtual space--job, money, status, women, existential authenticity, all of which are in limited supply. And yet, by dint of some sadistically neutral cosmic conspiracy, they're forced to stand around talking to each other all the time. The subject of this book, broadly speaking, is that old-time sideshow favorite formerly known as The Human Condition, in this case construed as an elaboration of what's so bad about ever having to be in the same room with anyone else.

Bei den fünf Buchstaben L-O-T-T-O wird bei der Mehrheit der Menschen in vielen Sprachen eine Hoffnung wachgerufen: Der Traum von Reichtum, Glück und vor allem der Traum davon, nicht mehr arbeiten zu müssen. In Deutschland hat die nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg neu ins Leben gerufene staatliche Lotterie im Laufe der Jahrzehnte mittlerweile rund 1.500 Lotto-Millionäre hervorgebracht; doch hat es sich rückblickend auf die weitere Lebensgeschichte der Lotto-Millionäre für manche als fatal erwiesen, sofort nach dem Erhalt eines Lottogewinns den Job zu kündigen – die größte aller Hoffnungen, die an einem Lottogewinn hängt, ist somit tatsächlich eine Illusion. Die Leere und Sinnsuche, die durch Übermut entsteht, kann also nicht durch den Kauf eines Lamborghinis, Maseratis oder Porsches, von einem Penthouse in London, Barcelona, am New Yorker Central Park und evtl. der Anschaffung einer eigenen Yacht, wenn man den Jackpot geknackt hat, gefüllt werden. Viel Geld führt also nicht gleich zu einem besseren Leben – wohl aber zu einem sehr viel Geldsorgen-freieren Leben. Es ist sehr befreiend und beruhigend, nicht mehr daran denken zu müssen, wie man Wohnungsmiete oder Kredite und Rechnungen begleicht, falls es mit dem Job mal nicht mehr so gut läuft. Deshalb wird es Sie sicherlich interessieren zu erfahren, dass Sie in diesem Ebook viel Hintergrundwissen über das deutsche Lotto und über die europäische Variante, die EuroMillions, vermittelt bekommen. Sie erfahren, welche unterschiedlichen Varianten und Erfolgsquoten es im Lotto gibt und wie Sie in Zukunft erfolgreicher Lotto spielen – Immer den Jackpot vor Augen.

Millions of Women Are Waiting to Meet You is a poignant, hilarious and gloriously indiscreet diary of the dates, good and bad.

American Art and Culture Between the Wars

Looking behind the scenes at the personalities and policies of such venerable institutions as the Federal Arts Project and the Museum of Modern Art, A. Joan Saab discerns a broad-based democratic modernism inspired by and engaged with the social life of the period. In the summer of 1935 President Franklin Delano Roosevelt established the Federal Arts Project under the aegis of the Works Progress Administration. The project's goal was, in the words of its director Holger Cahill, to "get people all over the United States interested in art as an everyday part of living and working." In addition to this endeavor, the project would also provide work for artists who, as a project press release stated, "had been hit just as hard by unemployment as any other producing worker." Meanwhile, as director of the newly opened Museum of Modern Art, Alfred Barr was instituting his philosophy of "democracy in design" through a series of ambitious exhibits that focused on informed consumption in the marketplace. The idea of treating the artist as a "producing worker" and art as an "everyday part of living and working" was a novel one in 1935 and illustrated a broad shift in the social roles of both. Prior to the 1930s, art in America had resided principally in the domain of the cultural elite. The upheaval of the Depression era, however, challenged this authority. Throughout the decade, government officials, museum professionals, educators, and artists worked together to determine not only what role artists would play in society but also what forms democratic art would take and how widely it would be disseminated, thus fundamentally redefining the relationship between art and society. This egalitarian artistic movement of the 1930s stands as a significant moment in the ongoing dialogue over the relationship of art and public life that continues today.

China's Millions

Banner-carrying Salvation Army marchers, stone-silent Quakers, jumpy Midwestern revivalists, closed-fellowship Brethren, and Prayer-book Anglicans all made up the mixed multitude sent to the Middle Kingdom by the China Inland Mission (CIM). In China's Millions, the newest volume of the acclaimed Studies in the History of Christian Missions series, veteran historian Alvyn Austin crafts a compelling narrative of the sprawling history of the China Inland Mission. Austin explores two questions: How did British evangelicalism feed into American fundamentalism, eventually becoming global Protestantism, and how did evangelical Christianity become Chinese? Along the way he introduces readers to a remarkable array of sights, from the visionary, charismatic sect-leader Pastor Hsi, to the wordless book, a missionary teaching device that fit perfectly with Chinese color cosmology, to the opium-soaked aftermath of the North China Famine of 1877-79. Clear, readable, and well researched, China's Millions digs deeply into the Chinese and Western past to tell a story that no one would think to tell, the strange yet hopeful result of two cultures colliding.
