As the first black female television journalist in the western United States, Belva Davis overcame the obstacles of racism and sexism, and helped change the face and focus of television news. Now she is sharing the story of her extraordinary life in her poignantly honest memoir, Never in My Wildest Dreams. A reporter for almost five decades, Davis is no stranger to adversity. Born to a fifteen-year-old Louisiana laundress during the Great Depression, and raised in the overcrowded projects of Oakland, California, Davis suffered abuse, battled rejection, and persevered to achieve a career beyond her imagination. Davis has seen the world change in ways she never could have envisioned, from being verbally and physically attacked while reporting on the 1964 Republican National Convention in San Francisco to witnessing the historic election of Barack Obama in 2008. Davis worked her way up to reporting on many of the most explosive stories of recent times, including the Vietnam War protests, the rise and fall of the Black Panthers, the Peoples Temple cult mass suicides at Jonestown, the assassinations of San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk, the onset of the AIDS epidemic, and the aftermath of the terrorist attacks that first put Osama bin Laden on the FBI’s Most Wanted List. She encountered a cavalcade of cultural icons: Malcolm X, Frank Sinatra, James Brown, Ronald Reagan, Huey Newton, Muhammad Ali, Alex Haley, Fidel Castro, Dianne Feinstein, Condoleezza Rice, and others. Throughout her career Davis soldiered in the trenches in the battle for racial equality and brought stories of black Americans out of the shadows and into the light of day. Still active in her seventies, Davis, the “Walter Cronkite of the Bay Area,” now hosts a weekly news roundtable and special reports at KQED, one of the nation’s leading PBS stations,. In this way she has remained relevant and engaged in the stories of today, while offering her anecdote-rich perspective on the decades that have shaped us. “No people can say they understand the times in which they have lived unless they have read this book.” — Dr. Maya Angelou

From Barnardo boy to original virgin soldier; from apprentice journalist in London's Fleet Street to famous novelist... At times funny, at times sad, but always honest and utterly compulsive, Leslie Thomas's story is straight out of fiction. As an orphan, he picked his way through the rubble of post-war Britain and was sent on national service to the Far East. Later he became a Fleet Street reporter, with hilarious experiences to relate, and then became the bestselling author of The Virgin Soldiers - the novel that, although scandalous in its day, is now recognised as a classic of its kind. He is also the creator of Dangerous Davies: The Last Detective, which has been adapted into a popular television series. In 2005, Leslie Thomas was awarded an OBE for services to literature. With a new introduction for this edition, this is an amazing story, and Leslie Thomas's magic touch brings it crackling to life with warmth, wit and humour.

A Mormon in the White House?

10 Things Every Conservative Should Know About Mitt Romney

According to author and radio personality Hewitt, Mitt Romney-billionaire venture capitalist, consummate family man, gifted and media-savvy politician-would be unstoppable in the coming presidential race were it not for one niggling line on his resumé: he's a Mormon. Hewitt attempts to refute the claim that no Mormon could get elected President (along with any other claim that might be made against Romney) while analyzing the former Massachusetts governor's biography and burnishing his conservative and leadership credentials. Hewitt is an agreeable writer, wise enough to take detours (such as an edifying primer on Mormon history and thought) that stave off tedium. He spends far more time extolling Romney than excoriating his Republican and Democratic opponents.

At the height of the bush war, (Chimurenga II), without a word to his wife Leocardia, Kufa absconds over the border one night to join the Comrades only to return years later to die in the arms of his beloved. After years of procrastinating, Gavin finally agrees to adopt a child called Topaz Nyasha, but he does so on the proviso that no one ever discovers the identity of the infants biological mother. Because of this Shirley is convinced that her husband is the father, and for years she hides the details of his own birth from him, but will Monica, the maid, reveal the facts surrounding Gavins roots before the wind song blows the truth through the small fishing village on Lake Kariba? After Topaz turns 18, Dominic is astonished to learn that she is in fact the great granddaughter of tracker Elias Siamkwari and ivory hunter Sebastian LEstrange, but why should she inherit the gold Huguenot cross with its definitive pearl that symbolizes the Holy Spirit? In this suspense-filled saga set in the mystical Zambezi Valley, against Zimbabwes political background, the legacy of the Zambezi Wind Song is ultimately fulfilled.

By no means am I saying this is a bad thing, but it is not a choice that I made. By no means did we settle on anything. By no means does he think children need to go through terrible times to be better people. By no means is he guaranteed to win. By no means is this fight over or even anywhere near under control. By no means let him dominate the conversation. By no means should individuals or groups be allowed to go that building. By no means should we be complacent with being second. LITTLE Meaning: Small [Little + Auxiliary Verb + Subject] Little do managers and executives realize that delay is in itself a decision! Little do they know that she is better qualified than any of them in survival skills. Little do they know that the journey ahead is not going to be easy. Little do they know that their loss is actually a win for all of us, including for them. Little do we realize the exact meaning or the appropriate use of many terms. BUT NOT But not for a minute did he make me feel angry. Embassy shutdowns happen, but not usually on this scale. Gender equality is still a goal, but not a present reality, for university campuses around the world. He could be right, but not for the reason he thinks. He has time for sports but not for family. He is clearly the strongest but not superhuman. He looks comfortable but not great. NEVER Meaning: Not At Any Time/Not On Any Occasion Contractor left the work midway and never came back to finish it. He gave a press conference explaining he never did anything wrong in his career. He had to come clean but he never did. He never does anything for us. He never does anything truly charitable. He never went to class. He said he would text me after the weekend but never did. He thought he was never in with a chance of becoming a mayor last year. His wife is soft-spoken and never hurt anyone. I am ashamed that I saw injustice and never did anything about it. I am not sure he will even make the team, never mind have a big role. I am sure I will never forget this moment. I could never go back.

Once you open the pages of my journal, you will step into the most exciting summer--I will never forget it, and I doubt you will either. Never in my wildest dreams did I think things would turn out the way they did, but wow, what a great summer. If you are an inventor like me, it helps to be smart, but it really helps to have a genius for a grandfather. Most kids our age only dream of flying over their neighborhood five hundred feet in the air, but I did it. My first landing was not so good, but my last one made me the hometown hero. I also learned that summer the value of standing up for yourself and being a loyal friend. To say I had a couple of near death experiences would be an understatement, but in the end I lived to see the sixth grade. Did I mention that my best friend was a girl?
