Through an examination of the experience of transsexuals, this book
enhances understanding of how gender can and does function in
powerful, complex and subtle ways. The author, who has herself been
surgically reassigned, has conducted extensive interviews with
transsexuals from many walks of life. Her personal experiences,
which inform this book, have given her an access to her subjects
that others would likely be denied. While highlighting how the
gender identity of transsexuals relates to hormonal and surgical
changes in the body as well as to changes in dress, the book
investigates the pressures and motivations to conform to expected
gender roles, and the ways in which these are affected by social,
educational, and professional status. Differences in the
experiences of those who change from male to female and those who
change from female to male are also examined.
CITIES: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR SUSTAINABILITY BRANTLEY LIDDLE AND FRED MOAVENZADEH OR at least 4000 years, cities have been centers of cultural, social, technological Fand economic innovation, inventions and their application, and political power. Only in the last 200 years, the industrial era, have urban areas grown so rapidly, and their populations increased so dramatically that their impacts on the natural environ- ment are being felt beyond their immediate geographic surroundings. As the 21" cen- tury dawns, megacities-great and far-reaching concentrations of power and influ- ence-have become centers of the phenomena of globalization and information ex- change. These concentrations of people and activity are placing stress on the natural environment so great that it is beginning to have extensive regional, and even global impacts. However, asconcentrations ofpower-political, economic, andintellectual- these great urban centers share with the ancestral cities of past millennia the resources to consciously shape the future. The management of these megacities (those having populations of over eight million) in their current formative stages so taxing to natural systems,paradoxicallypresents theopportunity torestoresustainableregional and global environments. Environmental problems consequent to urban growth have two sources: pov- erty and affluence. These two conditions often coexist in dramatic contrast within the same city, particularly in developing countries. In terms of environmental impact, poverty-based problems tend to have local effects, while affluence-based problems usually have transboundary and/or global effects.
Auf ihre unglaublich ehrliche, humorvolle und genaue Erzahlweise nimmt Lone dich mit auf die Reise zu ihrem Herzen. Es geht um die Sehnsucht nach Antworten von einem Mann, der nie Antwortet. Es geht um Fragen an denselben Mann, die sie ihm nie direkt gestellt hat und es geht dabei auch um Fragen die sie dem lieben Gott stellt. Auf dem Hohepunkt der Liebesgeschichte ist sie versucht, Gott ganz nahe zu sein und will sich von hochsten Punkt in Norddeutschland, der NOK-Hochbrucke herabsturzen. In der heimlichen Hoffnung dabei in die Arme ihres Herzensmannes zu fallen. Nur wegen der Aussicht einer sich verschlechternden Gesundheitsversorgung verzichtet sie auf diesen Hoheflug. Diese Story basiert auf einer wahren Liebesgeschichte. Und wie so viele andere Geschichten endet diese in einer himmlischen Begegnung zweier Liebender, die sich nach einer schier endlosen, manchmal sehr einseitigen Beziehungspflege mithilfe freundlicher Hellseher letztendlich glucklich, endet.
Kelly Carmichael can't seem to find her niche in life. Her father pushes her in one direction while her mother pulls her in another. Now almost thirty, she grows weary of pursuing someone else's happiness. But just when she believes she has found the perfect career and the love of her life in Memphis, her father dies. Now she is forced to give up her dream job to take care of the mother she doesn't understand and deal with the harsh reality of a father she thought she knew. When she is finally ready to resume her life in Memphis, she is set back once again, this time with ulcerative colitis and the horrible changes in her body she must deal with as she fights to keep her boyfriend, gets to know her mother, and adjusts to her changing life in a small southern town. With this humorous and honest novel, Tracy Lea Carnes offers up an inspiring glimpse at ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease through the eyes of a thirty-year-old woman dealing with her diagnosis, its treatment and the complications it brings into her life. Today, 1.4 million people live with some form of IBD (irritable bowl disease) in the U.S. and an estimated 750,000 live with an ostomy. Like the heroine in "Excess Baggage," Kelly Carmichael, most people on average are diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease in their early to mid-30s, though the disease can strike at any age. Despite its extensive impact on the lives of many young adult Americans, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease is low on our radar. Focusing our attention by drawing from her own experience, Tracy Lea Carnes has written a story that needs to be told. A groundbreaking novel, "Excess Baggage" shatters convention bringing colitis and Crohn's disease awareness into the national spotlight.
