An almost universal occurrence takes place when people’s lives reach a midpoint. They look back at what they’ve done and what they haven’t. They begin asking themselves questions. Have they led the lives they dreamed of living? Given the chance, would they change the past? Given the chance, would they plot a new course for the future? Given the chance, would they be willing to toss their security blankets aside and venture into the unknown? The Will is about such a person, Guy Treadwell, a man wallowing in mediocrity. He could be any man, or woman. He is about to turn forty and sees his life as tortuously uneventful, but is lost in apathy. He recognizes the need for change but is discouraged by previous failures to take the risks needed to send his life in a new direction. The average person, like Guy, is the victim of a ritualistic lifestyle. Man is a creature of habit and not easily persuaded to depart from comfort zones. Luckily for some, unforeseeable things happen that force change: death, divorce, economic disaster, a lottery ticket worth millions, and so on. Guy’s unpredictable occurrence is a phone call. On the other end of the line is a lawyer who informs Guy Treadwell that he is the designee of a previously unknown relative’s will. This relative suffers from a terminal illness. However, there are stipulations. If Guy does not conform to these stipulations, he will forfeit the inheritance. In other words, change is not going to be an easy thing to manage. He must do his part and do it right. Will he be able to hold up his end of the bargain? Two old women, a pretty nurse, and a host of other people who mean well put him to the test.

Questions can be dangerous. . . Seventeen-year-old Alysse's senior year was stressful enough with exams, a harpy teacher, and a long time crush falling for her best friend Tori. Then she starts questioning what she's taught about the enemy living right outside the city walls. Alysse soon finds herself dealing with guerillas, a seismic bomb, and a genocidal plot that could spark a war. Alysse must decide who to trust as she and her friend Pete ask questions everyone else avoids. Probably because everyone else is afraid of the answers. And they should be... "Inside the Wall by A. Tebbs is a fun and action-filled dystopian YA novel that really packs a punch! If you enjoyed The Hunger Games or The Divergent Series, you will love this one!" --Erica, Robyn Reads "(Desert) is a futuristic picture of a society segregated by stations of wealth and privilege will make you think. In many ways (Alysse's) world is chillingly familiar." --Peter H., N.Y. "Made the mistake of starting this book in the middle of the day and was unable to accomplish anything because I couldn't put it down! CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT ONE!!" --Kristi, Goodreads

The history of courtesans and slave girls in the medieval Arab world transcends traditional boundaries of study and opens up new fields of sociological and cultural enquiry. In the process it offers a remarkably rich source of historical and cultural information on medieval Islam. 'The Slave Girls of Baghdad' explores the origins, education and art of the ‘qiyan’ - indentured girls and women who entertained and entranced the caliphs and aristocrats who worked the labyinths of power throughout the Abbasid Empire. In a detailed analysis of Islamic law, historical sources and poetry, F. Matthew Caswell examines the qiyans’ unique place in the society of ninth-century Baghdad, providing a comprehensive cultural overview of an elusive and little understood institution Rigorously trained from the age of nine, the qiyan had a profound impact on the development of elegiac-erotic poetry as well as on trends in art and fashion. For the first time a substantial part of their work is reproduced in translation, showing the bulk of it to consist of clever, often risqué, epigrams bearing the hallmarks of artistic virtuosity and a keen eye for social commentary. A parallel review of the music these women produced reveals their influence on the emergence of popular and unconventional forms of song from Baghdad to Basra. Through a study of contemporary Islamic law and academic literature, Caswell examines the qiyans’ unique place in Abbasid society and their contested moral standing. The qiyan occupied a privileged position which set them apart from the general body of female slaves, as well as the population of free-born women. Caswell traces their long-lasting effect on Arab society and follows the moral criticism that surrounded their social popularity and sexual patronage. This important history will be essential reading for all those concerned with the history of slavery, and its place within both the context of medieval Islam and across the Abbasid Empire.

In May 1985 the University of Massachusetts held the first conference on the parameter setting model of grammar and acquisition. The conference was conceived in the belief that there is a new possibility of tightly connecting grammatical studies and language acquisition studies, and that this new possibility has grown out of the new generation of ideas about the relation of Universal Grammar to the grammar of particular languages. The papers in this volume are all concerned in one way or another with the 'parametric' model of grammar, and with its role in explaining the acquisition of language. Before summarizing the accompanying papers, I would like to sketch the intellectual background of these new ideas. It has long been the acknowledged goal of grammatical theorists to explicate the relation between the experience of the child and the knowledge of the adult. Somehow, the child selects a unique grammar (by assumption) compatible with a random partially unreliable sample of some language. In the earliest work in generative grammar, starting with Chomsky's Aspects, and extending to such works as Jackendoffs Lexicalist Syntax (1977), the model of this account was the formal evaluation metric, accompanied by a general rule writing system. The model of acquisition was the following: the child composed a grammar by writing rules in the rule writing system, under the constraint that the rules must be compatible with the data, and that the grammar must be the one most highly valued by the evaluation metric.

This is the true story of a Londoner who gives up his job as an estate agent in the city, moves to the wilds of Exmoor, starts a smallholding and becomes self-sufficient, with a few bumps along the way. Simon's journey from urbanite to self-sufficient smallholder is brimming with incidents - some funny and some tragic - leading him to question Mother Nature, himself, the food he eats, and his role in it all. Which makes the transition from city life to self-sufficient smallholder slow, emotional and, for him, often confusing, but it is also beautiful, warming and laugh-out-loud funny. So if you would like to spend time with an accidental smallholder who completely changed one drunken night in Devon, then join Simon, his wife and their extended family as they learn the truth of what it takes to live a self-sufficient life, before eventually becoming as happy as the proverbial pigs in clover.

I'm supposed to be made of sugar and spice and all things nice. But I'm sweet and sour and not a little flower. I am a girl! I am a girl! I am a girl! The girl in this book likes to win, she likes to be spontaneous, fast and strong, and because she also likes to dress in t-shirt and shorts, she is forever getting mistaken for a boy. And when she meets a boy who likes wearing princess dresses and playing dolls, they both quickly discover that they share interests that are wide and varied. I am a Girl! is a wonderful celebration of being who we are and not being pigeon-holed or restricted by gender stereotypes. Most of all it is full of energy and laugh-out-loud funny. Who says that pink is for girls and blue is for boys?
