Expressionism in the Cinema

One of the most visually striking traditions in cinema, for too long Expressionism has been a neglected critical category of research in film history and aesthetics. The fifteen essays in this anthology remedies this by revisiting key German films like The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) and Nosferatu (1922), and also provide original critical research into more obscure titles like Nerven (1919) and The Phantom Carriage (1921), films that were produced in the silent and early sound era in countries ranging from France, Sweden and Hungary, to the United States and Mexico. An innovative and wide-ranging collection, Expressionism in the Cinema re-canonizes the classical Expressionist aesthetic, extending the critical and historical discussion beyond pre-existing scholarship into comparative and interdisciplinary areas of film research that reach across national boundaries.

Over the course of her life, Bina Abraham can recall countless times when she would ask, "Why me, God?" It was when both of her children were diagnosed with Ichthyosis skin conditions; it was when she struggled to find happiness in an arranged marriage; it was when she just wanted her life to be in the light instead of the dark. Yet in her new semi-autobiography, Pressed For Fragrance, Bina learned with each life-changing experience that she was being refined in Christ through trials, in order to become a victor in Christ. Born in South India, Bina had dreams of love and education; yet God had another path in mind with husband Abraham and her children. In the midst of her discouragement, she discovered the goodness of God in her family's faith and love, depending on Jesus to help her forgive the past and realize anything is possible with God.

July 24, 1915. Chicagos deadliest day, far worse than the Great Fire. The SS Eastland - a poorly-designed, overcrowded lake steamer - capsized without warning in the heart of downtown Chicago, killing 844 people preparing for a company picnic. The victims - mostly young immigrants who toiled long hours in Western Electrics Hawthorne Works - and the disaster itself were largely forgotten to the mists of time. But on the 100th anniversary of the tragedy, a quake strikes below Chicago, a purple flash emanates from a mystery hole in the Chicago River and an inexplicable hazmat event strikes a Chinatown diner. Thus begins Chicagos shocking reintroduction to the horror of July 24, 1915, and a commemoration of the victims. The Eastland Water Spirits is a parable about memories and stories which refuse to disappear. It explores our ancestors impact on each of us, like it or not. It celebrates our connectedness over time and space, using water and spirits to tell the tale.

Praise is not worship, unless it is accepted by God! Most modern church services focus on praise and worship, yet the power of God's presence rarely graces the altars. Sadly, few believers are filled with the baptism of the Holy Ghost, and even fewer have experienced the physical touch of God. In today's spiritual drought, seekers of salvation, healing, and Spirit baptism must have access to God's power. "Creating a Glory Atmosphere" demonstrates how true worship builds an atmosphere saturated with praise which issues an irresistible invitation for the glory of God to work among His people. If you need the benefits of a Glory Atmosphere, this book is a must read. The Deeper Life Series - Book 1

This textbook offers readers an introduction to fracture mechanics, equipping them to grasp the basic ideas of the presented approaches to modeling in applied mechanics In the first part, the book reviews and expands on the classical theory of elastic and elasto-plastic material behavior. A solid understanding of these two topics is the essential prerequisite to advancing to damage and fracture mechanics. Thus, the second part of this course provides an introduction to the treatment of damage and fractures in the context of applied mechanics Wherever possible, the one-dimensional case is first introduced and then generalized in a following step. This departs somewhat from the more classical approach, where first the most general case is derived and then simplified to special cases. In general, the required mathematics background is kept to a minimum Tutorials are included at the end of each chapter, presenting the major steps for the solution and offering valuable tips and tricks.

The "Tales from the Future" collection consists of several true stories, which are yet to come to pass, each representing a specific projection of the world's future. The tales were taken from chapters in the "Ringing Cedars of Russia" book series by Vladimir Megre. The collection's chapters speak to us of the power of man's dreams, of love, of the perfection of man, and of the wonderful future which is possible for everyone. These are not ordinary stories: the amazingly striking images that the storyteller has embedded in this given picture of a future life contain an all-mighty healing power that inspires the reader to dream, to change himself, and to transform the world around him. What lies at the foundation of the stories is the idea of "family homesteads," which is capable of returning man to the promised land around him, of reanimating creativity and dreams, and of giving new meaning to one's everyday life. The collection includes tales from the following chapters: Vladimir Megre, the book "Co-creation" chapter "School, or Lesson of the Gods" Vladimir Megre, the book "Who Are We?" chapters "May There Be Good on Earth," "The Disarmament Race" Vladimir Megre, the book "Who Are We?" chapter "Horsewoman from the Future" Vladimir Megre, the book "Who Are We?" chapter "City on the Neva" Vladimir Megre, the book "The Energy of Life" chapter "Give Children a Homeland" Vladimir Megre, the book "The New Civilization" chapter "I Will Give Birth to You, My Angel" Vladimir Megre, the book "The New Civilization" chapter "A Love That Creates Worlds" Vladimir Megre, the book "The New Civilization" chapter "The Billionaire" Vladimir Megre, the book "The New Civilization II - Rites of Love" chapter "A Meeting Millennia Later"

What happens when the provider, protector, and priest is gone? What happens when the head of the home does not know his true identity? What are the consequences of a fatherless home? What happens when a dad is no longer a father? Essie Day was born in Abbeville S.C. At the age of eighteen months old, she relocated to Brooklyn, New York with her mother. As a child, she felt incomplete and lost with no real purpose. Growing up, she struggled with the question, "where is my father?" Until one day, at the young age of twenty one, she came into the knowledge of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It was then she knew she had a Heavenly Father all the time. The pain of being a fatherless child compelled her to pick up a pen and write A HOUSE WITHOUT A COVERING."

Scoop Baby is a one of a kind read encapsulating the importance of faith for miraculous wonders-specifically in the context of family. Following the surge of unwed mothers' children being adopted circa 1940s through early 70s and the aftermath of treatment, Hailey T. Sawyer pens the impact this separation has on children, but, most importantly, the influence God has had on the regeneration of wholeness. Scoop Baby is fearlessly written with a delicate attunement to characters' anger, hurt and hopes and is not for the faint of heart, as she exposes Shirley's vulnerabilities throughout her spiritual and personal growth. Readers will find Sawyer's book both enlightening and informative, as they bear witness to God's undying power.

In recent decades there has been a notable renewal of interest in St Isaac the Syrian, a seventh-century master of the ascetic life. This selection of short sayings is part of Dr Brock’s work on a fuller, long-neglected manuscript which he is making available to English readers. Each sentence holds the mind steadily in the light of a truth about the spiritual life. St Isaac’s vivid images drawn directly from nature, husbandry and general human experience speak for themselves and draw us to penitence and prayer.
