According to a female friend of mine show me a woman in her early 40's or younger who has never been married, and says that she does not want to get married and I will show you a liar. Unfortunately many of these women are in what they think are dead end relationships. These women are characterized as bitter and angry because of their relationship situations. This book will give you some insight into the habits you develop, things you do, and attitude that you portray that will only give the man in your life a serious moment of pause when the discussion of marriage arises. Admittedly the issues presented are from a decidedly male point of view, but the author believes that it was important that women got a clear idea into how the male mind works.

For all intent, virtually all accepted mainstream Catholic Christian tenets remain untouched for the past two millennia. It follows then that we take for evident truths¿for example, our views on the Creator and creation¿s sexuality, gender issues, and human relationship concerns¿may in fact be nothing but establishment dogmas gleaned from wrong interpretation or translation of the original text and intent of Jesus Christ and the Bible authors. Now, isn¿t the mere chance of that being true too scary? The Sex Texts: Sexuality, Gender, and Relationships in the Bible by L. Robert Arthur raises just that possibility, despite the strong likelihood of facing stiff criticism from many sectors, mostly of the established Catholic persuasion. Yet those inclined to know the true message of Jesus Christ and his closest disciples may well take heed to scrutinize, at the very least, what Robert is trying to point out in his work. The Sex Texts: Sexuality, Gender, and Relationships in the Bible promises to raise a storm, but the public debate it could engender may yet start a new direction for the rest of humanity.

Now, Voyager, Stella Dallas, Leaver Her to Heaven, Imitation of Life, Mildred Pierce, Gilda…these are only a few of the hundreds of “women’s films” that poured out of Hollywood during the thirties, forties, and fifties. The films were widely disparate in subject, sentiment, and technique, they nonetheless shared one dual purpose: to provide the audience (of women, primarily) with temporary liberation into a screen dream—of romance, sexuality, luxury, suffering, or even wickedness—and then send it home reminded of, reassured by, and resigned to the fact that no matter what else she might do, a woman’s most important job was…to be a woman. Now, with boundless knowledge and infectious enthusiasm, Jeanine Basinger illuminates the various surprising and subversive ways in which women’s films delivered their message. Basinger examines dozens of films, exploring the seemingly intractable contradictions at the convoluted heart of the woman’s genre—among them, the dilemma of the strong and glamorous woman who cedes her power when she feels it threatening her personal happiness, and the self-abnegating woman whose selflessness is not always as “noble” as it appears. Basinger looks at the stars who played these women and helps us understand the qualities—the right off-screen personae, the right on-screen attitudes, the right faces—that made them personify the woman’s film and equipped them to make believable drama or comedy out of the crackpot plots, the conflicting ideas, and the exaggerations of real behavior that characterize these movies. In each of the films the author discusses—whether melodrama, screwball comedy, musical, film noir, western, or biopic—a woman occupies the center of her particular universe. Her story—in its endless variations of rags to riches, boy meets girl, battle of the sexes, mother love, doomed romance—inevitably sends a highly potent mixed message: Yes, you women belong in your “proper place” (that is, content with the Big Three of the women’s film world—men, marriage, and motherhood), but meanwhile, and paradoxically, see what fun, glamour, and power you can enjoy along the way. A Woman’s View deepens our understanding of the times and circumstances and attitudes out of which these movies were created.

Most of us begins to read the bible trying to understand our creator God and find out the way to escape from this troublesome world while struggling to cope with this fast running modern society and survive. But, reading through the bible alone would take a year, and yet finding out what it says is still another story. So, many of us close the bible before flipping over several pages and come back to wandering again for the same reason of enormous amount of scriptures and the difficulty to understand. Simply, we are trapped in this busy world of devil and the devil does not allow us to think about where we come from, where we go to and why we live in this world. That was stated in the bible as dead, saying 'And another of his disciples said unto him, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead. (Matthew8-22)' As the result, we just go to church for self-relief and follow the instructions of the church for no reason and say we obey to God. Yet, still we do not know what God says. Leaving every teaching of religious people and traditional religious idea behind, I tried to hear from God directly through the bible based upon solid rock foundation of common sense that the truth never changes. I did not hesitate to go to the extreme to stand on that foundation and I believe that extreme faith gave me understanding divine only God who is in extreme high place. As the bible says, 'No one can come to Me, unless the Father who sent Me draws him: and I will raise him up on the last day. (John 6-44)', this book is not intended to draw people into belief but to guide God's people that are lost. In other words, it is only for Sons of God. It doesn't necessarily mean that my way is the best way. So anybody who knows the way should follow own way.

 Fourth wave feminism has entered the national conversation and established a highly visible presence in popular media, especially in cutting-edge science fiction and fantasy films and television series. Wonder Woman, the Wasp, and Captain Marvel headline superhero films while Black Panther celebrates nonwestern power. Disney princesses value sisterhood over conventional marriage. This first of two companion volumes addresses cinema, exploring how, since 2012, such films as the Hunger Games trilogy, Mad Max: Fury Road, and recent Star Wars installments have showcased women of action. The true innovation is a product of the Internet age. Though the web has accelerated fan engagement to the point that progressivism and backlash happen simultaneously, new films increasingly emphasize diversity over toxic masculinity. They defy net trolls to provide stunning role models for viewers across the spectrum of age, gender, and nationality.

IT'S MY SOUL, MY MOVEMENT, MY WAY! The Afro-American has a strong culture of soul that goes far back past our enslavement in America. It is that spirit that keeps us strong. Poet Jeffrey Perry speaks as an ex-slave (descendant) who realizes the true impact that slavery, Jim Crow laws and all our struggles had and continue to have on the Black psyche and nature. These trials have been circumvented by an understanding of the soul of African people. It has been faith, love of God or just life itself that keeps us keeping on! Conversations with a Soul Brother is a calling to embrace our past, present and future with a love of our spirit. It is Jeffrey's soul that is heard in his words.

Who am I and what is the world? Where do I come from? Where do I go? Does God exist? If it exists, where it can be found? What is he like? How does he look? Is God perfect, and does he love me unconditionally? Is it true that I can’t have a partner, live sexuality, have money eat and sleep well if I want to achieve happiness and God? If I love to live and to indulge my desires, does that mean that I’m sinful and that God doesn't like me? Does it have the sense to condemn people, you, God? Does it have the sense to love oneself, people, God? What’s my path and what’s my purpose? If I’m unhappy, how can I cure that? If I’m discontented, how much good is that? How much are self-respect, self-worth, and dignity important? What is the real knowledge, and how to recognize it? There are much more questions like this. This book deals with them. This book is not offering just mere answers to questions asked previously. It also offers guidance to the reader, who on its own, by perusing this book can consciously experience the truth presented in this book. The book 'Return to God' is composed of 3 parts, which together form a whole. Each part deals with the certain secret of life. The first part, called 'Men and Women', gives us an insight into similarities and differences between the sexes. The modern men and women have their desires and their misconceptions. The first part of the book aims at helping the reader to separate the positive desires, to destroy hidden self-destruction and a bad course, to avoid mistakes, and to fulfill wishes and achieve happiness. This book helps a man gain fundamental and minimal dignity that is essential for happiness in love relationships and marriage. Therefore, it is essential to understand laws of the first part of trilogy 'Return to God', called 'Man and Women' as the prerequisite for marriage, love, and sexual relationships’ happiness. Pay close attention to things you consider impossible. Biljana Obradovic, poetess and the writer of several novels from Valjevo will tell us more about the book: - Vladimir Zivkovic is a man dedicated to the lifelong study of the soul. His writing reveals calmness, consistency in his path to God, as the only light that sustains the inner being. I really like his voice which pays special respect to everyone, especially to girls and women. By reading his works related to the faith in God, and therefore in you, I realized that the path of knowledge is difficult but fruitful. I realized that badly directed ego might destroy even the greatest minds, as well as biggest believers. Vladimir talks about the modesty life and balanced desires. Thus he shares his knowledge with others, to make them deeply think about the life they live nowadays, in the modern times. I hope he will publish more books to shed light on the path of the just and truly believing men. With due respect of this writing, I wish you success and a large number of readers! Maja Djolovic, translator and writer say about the book: - If you’ve just been searching for self-help reading and an easy and quick fix for your problems, there is no such advice in this book. Vladimir’s trilogy 'Return to God' is an authentic collection of real life stories and situations which were created by the author as the result of his personal spiritual journaling. His stories offer great insights into the modern life of man and women, their inner struggle, and problems they face in their search for meaning and true spirituality. The external influences of the corrupted individuals and society, as well as main reasons and internal sources of corruption, could be found in our closest surroundings. These stories, in a nutshell, deal with the current lack of morality, truth, and spiritual guidance in everyday life, as well in male-female relationships. Vladimir sheds the light on possible underlying problems and their true origin in human misconceptions, blurred moral vision, and false beliefs.

Names of Nihil

Names of Nihil

In this book, probably for the first time in Western philosophy, an attempt has been made to point out and systematically explicate the problem scope of the Nothing (which is called Nihil in the book) and to try to explain the springhead of the excessive negativity, inherent only in the human being, or in other words, the springhead of the human’s natural nihilism. Nihilism is treated here not as a posture, pose, or an ideological attitude, but as the spread of the human metaphysical nucleus, of Nihil. Nihilistic annihilation, manifesting itself as the road of the naming of Nihil and of the production of thingly crystals (artificial world) as a result of that naming, usually is called “history”. Names of Nihil (language phenomena), being the antithesis of Nihil, falsify and cover up Nihil itself, turning it into “supreme” being, e.g. into “the One”, “God”, “Substance”, “Matter”, “Spirit”, ad infinitum. This book should be interesting not only to philosophers or humanitarians, but also to all those who concern themselves with the total human condition.

Are we years away from the end of time, or perhaps months? The prophetic signs of this world clearly indicate the second coming of Christ. As in the days of Noah, the marriages of the day are an indicator of this event. When God created the marriage institution, He installed spiritual roles for the man and woman. When these "roles" would reverse themselves, intervention from God always followed. This has been an established pattern all through the Bible. It first manifested with Adam and Eve in the garden. It followed the downfall of the sons of God right before the flood. And it brought judgment to Solomon shortly after he began to worship the gods of his wives. The New Testament is full of warnings to the churches about following the spiritual authority given to the man and woman. These warnings are basically ignored today. The marriage relationship, when spiritually understood, clearly prophesies that we will experience the end times during our lifetime.

Gender studies has maintained its status as a heavily researched field. However, women and their role in cinema is a vastly understudied topic that deals with various aspects of feminism and sexism. The function of women in the film industry has evolved over time and proven to be an interesting area of research regarding the transition from sexual icons to respected professionals. Feminism is a widely researched subject, yet its specific application within cinema is an area that has yet to be studied. International Perspectives on Feminism and Sexism in the Film Industry is an essential reference source that examines the representation of women in cinema and provides a feminist approach to various aspects of the film industry including labor, production, and the cultural impact of women in motion pictures. Featuring research on topics such as violence against women, feminist film theory, and psychoanalysis, this book is ideally designed for directors, industry professionals, writers, screenwriters, activists, professors, students, administrators, and researchers in fields that include film studies, gender studies, mass media, and communications.
