Black Flag were the pioneers of American Hardcore, and this is their blood-spattered story. Formed in Hermosa Beach, California, in 1978, they made and played brilliant, ugly, no-holds-barred music for eight brutal years on a self-appointed touring circuit of America’s clubs, squats, and community halls. They fought with everybody—the police, the record industry, and even their own fans—and they toured overseas on pennies a day in beat-up trucks and vans. This history tells Black Flag’s story from the inside, drawing on exclusive interviews with the group’s members, their contemporaries, and the bands they inspired. It depicts the rise of Henry Rollins, the iconic front man, and Greg Ginn, who turned his electronics company into one of the world’s most influential independent record labels while leading Black Flag from punk’s three-chord frenzy into heavy metal and free jazz.

Thirteen-year-old Bani, though born in Jerusalem, has lived from infancy with his uncle in beautiful Susa, the city of the Persian King Artaxerxes. Now, his Uncle Nehemiah wants to leave his position of high honor as Cupbearer to the King to return to Jerusalem, a city in ruins and beset by every kind of trouble! Nehemiah's request of the king, permission to return to help his own people, could so easily—in an empire riddled with political intrigue—be misconstrued as treasonous scheming. Bani himself is given an unexpected part to play, the outcome of which is to forever change his life. Seen through the eyes of Bani, this novel dramatizes a turning-point of history, in 445 BC, when—through confrontation and daring risks—Judaism was re-established in the Promised Land, and purified for her unfolding mission.

The American classic - soon to be a major motion picture from Steven Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment, starring Cate Blanchett, Jack Black and Kyle MacLachlan Lewis Barnavelt doesn't have time on his side... When Lewis Barnavelt, an orphan, comes to stay with his uncle Jonathan, he expects to meet an ordinary person. But he is wrong. Uncle Jonathan and his next-door neighbour, Mrs Zimmermann, are both witches! Lewis couldn't be happier. What's not to like about seeing his uncle practise spells and eating Mrs Zimmermann's delicious cookies? At first, watching magic is enough. Then Lewis experiments with magic himself and unknowingly resurrects the former owner of the house: a woman named Selenna Izard. It seems that evil Selenna and her husband built a timepiece into the walls - a clock that could obliterate humankind. As the clock can be heard ticking away in the house all the time, sometimes louder, sometimes quieter, sometimes faster, sometimes slower, it is up to the Barnavelts to find where it is hidden in the walls - and stop it. A true race against time...

The Age of Walls

How Barriers Between Nations Are Changing Our World

Tim Marshall, the New York Times bestselling author of Prisoners of Geography, analyzes the most urgent and tenacious topics in global politics and international relations by examining the borders, walls, and boundaries that divide countries and their populations. The globe has always been a world of walls, from the Great Wall of China to Hadrian’s Wall to the Berlin Wall. But a new age of isolationism and economic nationalism is upon us, visible not just in Trump’s obsession with building a wall on the Mexico border or in Britain’s Brexit vote but in many other places as well. China has the great Firewall, holding back Western culture. Europe’s countries are walling themselves against immigrants, terrorism, and currency issues. South Africa has heavily gated communities, and massive walls or fences separate people in the Middle East, Korea, Sudan, India, and other places around the world. In fact, at least sixty-five countries, more than a third of the world’s nation-states, have barriers along their borders. There are many reasons why walls go up, because we are divided in many ways: wealth, race, religion, and politics, to name a few. Understanding what is behind these divisions is essential to understanding much of what’s going on in the world today. As with Marshall’s first two books, The Age of Walls is a brisk read, divided by geographic region. He provides an engaging context that is often missing from political discussion and draws on his real life experiences as a reporter from hotspots around the globe. He examines how walls (which Marshall calls “monuments to the failure of politics”), borders, and barriers have been shaping our political landscape for hundreds of years, and especially since 2001, and how they figure in the diplomatic relations and geo-political events of today.

The father is incarcerated; the mother of his children is working two jobs to provide shelter, food, and clothing to the children. Partly as a result of his incarceration, she has grown as a person, due to the obstacles and choices she has had to make, while he has become less confident because of the lack of decisions he is allowed to make. Add to that situation children who have grown up without a father role model in their lives, who are angry and embarrassed over the situations they have been placed in. Throw in the standard judgment of “free world” people. He is there for a reason. Do we even realize that the whole family is “doing time” together? The only catch is, the kids and wife are doing time for crimes they did not commit. Where is the “hope” in such situations?

Hope for the Hopeless Carl Carlson started life with two strikes against him, and it didn’t take long for him to strike out. Bounced from an orphanage to a small town in Florida to reform school to his first taste of jail, Carl was one of those kids “we don’t want around here,” exactly what the town’s respected football coach told him. By the time he was sixteen he found himself sitting in one of the toughest youth prisons in America, bitter and filled with hatred. Carl went on to lead Men of Valor, a ministry he founded to give men in prison hope and a chance to get out and stay out. Nationally, 70 percent of those in prison return after they are released. With MOV, that rate drops to less than 15 percent. In addition to providing a comprehensive mentoring and discipleship program for offenders, MOV serves the families and children of the men—the forgotten victims of crime. Beyond the Walls shares the miraculous story of how a dead-end kid was transformed by God’s love and led back to the place he most hated: prison. It highlights the dedicated work of hundreds of Nashville-area volunteers who are quietly rebuilding the lives of men and their families. But most of all, Beyond the Walls demonstrates what can happen in society when ordinary people live out their faith and carry the love of Jesus to the least of these.

Everything but the walls

Author: Jasper Morrison

Publisher: Lars Muller Publishers


Category: Design

Page: 189

Jasper Morrison's name is not associated with spectacular consumer design products. Instead, he has chosen to align himself from the start with an approach that designers often return to after careers spent otherwise: simple and durable forms that remain functional and true to their materials, and retain an unmistakable and exciting modern formal language. His success in the European design landscape over the past decade is without parallel, perhaps because his first furniture and interior designs appeared at a time when the overwhelming nature of flashy decor had become underwhelming. Arguing against Uselessism and for Utilism, Morrison equates the decorative content of a design with a lack of understanding of design's utilitarian purpose. Likewise, he continues to apply himself to doorhandles and doors, bottles of beer and busstops, regarding no aspect of daily life as unworthy of consideration as a design problem. Everything But the Walls provides a much needed survey of Morrison's working methods and their results, as well as an exploration of the sources of his inspirations and ideas.

From indie horror author and bestselling sensation Ania Ahlborn, this brand-new supernatural thriller questions: how far would you go for success, and what would you be capable of if the promise of forever was real? With his marriage on the rocks and his life in shambles, washed up crime writer Lucas Graham is desperate for a comeback. So when he's promised exclusive access to notorious cult leader and death row inmate Jeffrey Halcomb, the opportunity is too good to pass up. Lucas leaves New York for the scene of the crime—a split-level farmhouse on the gray-sanded beach of Washington State—a house whose foundation is steeped in the blood of Halcomb's diviners; runaways who, thirty years prior, were drawn to his message of family, unity, and unconditional love. Lucas wants to tell the real story of Halcomb's faithful departed, but when Halcomb goes back on his promise of granting Lucas exclusive information on the case, he's left to put the story together on his own. Except he is not alone. For Jeffrey Halcomb promised his devout eternal life…and within these walls, they're far from dead.
