Santege Male Enhancement Reviews: Benefits & Side Effects, Aminno Cent

aminno cent

Like females, men have their very own concerns that develop as they get older. One of one of the most usual and pushing problems that many males face with age is a lack of ability to experience the room lifestyle that they are familiar with. That is to claim, the aging process typically takes a toll on men's testosterone levels and also in turn, they are unable to carry out well in the room or to also experience the size as well as capacities that they use to have. The bright side is that there are natural solutions available ...

Historic Acadia National Park, Catherine Schmitt Apr 2016

Historic Acadia National Park, Catherine Schmitt

Catherine Schmitt

Historic Acadia National Park is a collection of true stories about the natural and human history of Acadia National Park, including some new and unfamiliar tales of one of America’s most popular parks. For centuries, Acadia’s mountain summits, rocky shores, and wooded valleys have drawn native residents, explorers, settlers, scientists, and visitors in search of beauty and inspiration. These stories of Acadia–from its geologic origins, unique flora, and engaging wildlife to its close relationship with surrounding communities like Bar Harbor, Isle au Haut, and Winter Harbor–reveal how and why Acadia became the national treasure it is ...


The Akron Offering: A Ladies' Literary Magazine, 1849-1850, Jon Miller Aug 2015

The Akron Offering: A Ladies' Literary Magazine, 1849-1850, Jon Miller

Jon Miller

FREE FULL-TEXT PDF DOWNLOAD From 1849 to 1850, Calista Cummings edited and published Akron's first literary magazine, The Akron Offering. At the time, Akron was a booming canal town on the verge of even greater prosperity. By turns religious, comic, romantic, and political, this extraordinary collection of early midwestern creative literature expresses a wide range of sometimes contradictory opinions on both the important questions of its day and the important questions of today: historical events such as the California Gold Rush of 1849 and the 1848 revolutions in Europe are considered alongside more timeless contemplations on truth, justice, and ...

The Sharpness Of What Lies Behind, Jennifer Lynn Johnson Jun 2015

The Sharpness Of What Lies Behind, Jennifer Lynn Johnson

Jennifer L. Johnson

The essays in this collection are not wholly concerned with family relationships, but they all treat, on some level, ideas of loss and difficulty, whether in the destruction and recreation of native prairie, the struggle to understand the spiritual in the absence of faith, or the small, persistent sense of disorientation that comes with hearing loss. They are about what it means to live in a place, fully, whether that place is geographical, spiritual, or remembered, and to ground ourselves in the smallest mysteries.

An anthology of essays by Jennifer Lynn Johnson.


Forum Introduction: Writing The Global Family: International Perspectives On Disability Studies And Family Narratives, Janet Sauer, Philip Ferguson Jun 2015

Forum Introduction: Writing The Global Family: International Perspectives On Disability Studies And Family Narratives, Janet Sauer, Philip Ferguson

Philip M. Ferguson

"We live in the Golden Age of the memoir. Everyone has a story to tell, and a growing number are finding their way to publication. The disability memoir has certainly been a part of this growth. It is refreshing to note how many of these recent narrative accounts of living with a disability have been written from what might be broadly termed a "disability studies perspective" taking on a more critical, socio-cultural orientation than the traditional 'inspiration in the face of personal tragedy' motif."

Mothers Of Sparta, Dawn D. Tyrrell Jan 2015

Mothers Of Sparta, Dawn D. Tyrrell

Dawn D Tyrrell

Mothers of Sparta is a collection of thirteen personal essays that examine place—knowing one’s place, and finding one’s place in the world. The narrative arc chronicles the narrator’s childhood, young adulthood, marriage and child rearing years, ultimately encompassing the difficulties of raising a child who, due to brain damage, faces an uncertain future. As the narrator grows older, place shifts from a concrete knowledge of the physical world around her, to learning her place within gendered and regional social constructs, and defining her place through roles such as wife, mother, student and writer. These essays are ...

Navigating With Harriet Quimby, Rachael Peckham Nov 2014

Navigating With Harriet Quimby, Rachael Peckham

Rachael Peckham

My maternal grandmother Ruth never missed an episode of the game show Jeopardy! One night in 2008, while I was working on my dissertation about a long-forgotten aviatrix with whom my family and I share connections, Grandma Ruth called to tell me about a Jeopardy! clue she had just heard: "The first woman to fly across the English Channel." My grandmother was reserved and soft-spoken, but I imagine her slapping the armrests of the recliner, disturbing the outstretched cat at her side, and beating all three contestants to the buzzer: "Who is Harriet Quimby?"--the subject of my dissertation.


Apple, Daydream, Memory, Rachael Peckham Nov 2014

Apple, Daydream, Memory, Rachael Peckham

Rachael Peckham

My older sister, Sarah, is the mother of an eighteen-month old girl, a precocious curly-haired toddler who shows less interest in carving a pumpkin than she does lying down in the grass beneath an apple tree. Claire was definitely showing signs of her Aunt Rachael this afternoon, Sarah debriefed in an email last week. She was in her own world. I remember my own worlds, my daydreams. They appeared on the way to school, to weekly piano lessons, church every Sunday. Always in the car, because we lived in southern Michigan, Amish country, landlocked by corn and twenty miles of ...


Disillusionment In War Literature, Esmeralda Kleinreesink Oct 2014

Disillusionment In War Literature, Esmeralda Kleinreesink

Esmeralda Kleinreesink

After the First World War, disillusionment is the idea that is most commonly associated with the experience of being a soldier. The romantic ideal of war as a glorious, honourable event, that will turn you into a man is shattered due to the gruesome nature of modern warfare. Or so it is often said. But is it true? Did this feeling of disillusionment start only after the First World War, or are there indications for an earlier start? Is it a country-dependent phenomenon, or one that can be found all over the Western world? And if so, is this feeling ...

Wild Rides And Wildflowers: Philosophy And Botany With Bikes, Scott Abbott, Sam Rushforth Mar 2014

Wild Rides And Wildflowers: Philosophy And Botany With Bikes, Scott Abbott, Sam Rushforth

Scott Abbott

This book bears only passing resemblance to any book we have read to date. We hope it is comical, perhaps in ways that will remind readers of NPR’s “Car Talk,” where listeners share the good natured and sometimes acidic banter between brothers who also know a lot about cars. We hope it is moving, not in the extended ways Terry Tempest Williams often achieves, but through surprising comments and stories that accompany the bike rides and that, over the course of four years, add up to a larger picture. We hope it is informative, not in the comprehensive way ...
