The Little Tokyo Informant Andrew Rosenheim 2014-11-04 An FBI agent scours LA’s criminal underground “in a noirish World War II–era thriller that’s rich in atmosphere” by the acclaimed author of Fear Itself (Kirkus Reviews). Autumn, 1941. Special Agent Jimmy Nessheim is in Hollywood for two reasons: to consult on a movie being made about the Bureau, and to investigate a suspicious Russian payment to a Japanese bank. Jimmy taps his trusted informant, Billy Osaka, to look into the matter. But when Billy disappears, Jimmy’s California vacation turns into a dangerous chase with no time to lose. His frantic search takes him through the dangerous streets of Little Tokyo and into a risky undercover gambit in Hawaii, just hours before the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. The Little Tokyo Informant is another well-researched historical thriller from “a stirring successor to Frederick Forsyth” (The Independent). “Rosenheim is even better this time out at melding interesting leads with a thrilling story line and vivid descriptions of such locales as L.A.’s Little Tokyo.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) “The ghosts of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler loom large.” —Kirkus Reviews

The Handbook of Ordinary Heroes Jigme Rinpoche 2019-09-03 Buddhism is said to be universal because it transcends all notions of time and culture. A French shepherd from the Middle Ages can apply it just as easily as a Singaporean businessman from the twenty-first century. The Buddha's teachings offer a method for understanding how to be and how to act--in other words, how to live our humanity while taking care of ourselves and others. The heroes referred to in this book are ordinary beings like us who choose to develop as individuals through their understanding and application of kindness and compassion. These heroes are bodhisattvas who wish for all beings to meet with lasting happiness and to experience protection from all causes for unhappiness. This handbook provides accessible explanations of what it means to live like a bodhisattva and offers a series of simple exercises directly related to daily life. It gives us key points for facing the difficulties we encounter in a new way and perceiving our lives according to altruistic values. Born in Tibet in 1949, Lama Jigme Rinpoche grew up and received his education with the principal teachers of the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. The Sixteenth Karmapa named Lama Jigme Rinpoche as his official representative and the spiritual director of Dhagpo Kagyu Ling in France. Ever since, Lama Jigme Rinpoche has filled this role. Strengthened by many years of experience in the West, his unique and modern approach renders the Buddha's millennia-old wisdom accessible and allows students to apply it concretely in daily twenty-first- century life.

Living Life Consciously Lana Tracy Lewis 2009-03-01 Living Life Consciously Living Life Consciously shares with you, your soul purpose, soul lesson and life lesson, each components of what constitutes your purpose in life. It reflects on your gifts and lessons, and how to actively and consciously implement them in your life in order to experience personal and spiritual enlightenment. As the ego and the soul come face to face on this earth plane, they become intertwined, and must learn to experience life holistically and from a common viewpoint. Thus begins the battle for both personal and soul growth. As you learn to love, appreciate and acknowledge every facet of who you are, you begin to experience your absolute potential through your innate power and uniqueness, which brings fulfillment, happiness and inner contentment. Together, the ego and the soul dance symbiotically to the rhythm of life. Living Life Consciously assists you to expand your awareness and thus encounter the blessings that life has to offer. Instead of battling to swim upstream you learn how to consciously manoeuvre your way downstream, going with the flow of life, rather than against it. You will learn how to interact with others and the dynamics of your relationships that either help or hinder you in your development towards self-growth and self-acceptance. Living Life Consciously teaches you that your purpose in life is not only to share your unique talents and abilities with others, but more importantly how to use your strengths to develop and embrace those aspects of yourself that you reject, thereby creating a 'whole' individual. Ultimately the ego and the soul are transformed and unite through the knowledge that they are inextricably interconnected. Together they create a harmonious, creative and constructive foundation needed to experience the joy and abundance ava

Sequential Drawings Richard McGuire 2016-11-01 From the author of the widely acclaimed graphic novel Here, awarded the 2016 Prix D'or for best graphic album at Angoulême, a new graphic work that celebrates another aspect of his incomparable genius. Sequential Drawings gathers together more than a decade of McGuire's witty and endlessly inventive spots—a veritable short-story collection—each drawing given its own spread, which, in turn, assures for the reader the experience of surprise and delight that the drawings unfailingly deliver. Richard McGuire's first series of "spot" drawings debuted in The New Yorker in February 2005 for the magazine's 80th anniversary issue. Spot drawings, scattered among the magazine's text, had been a long-running feature of The New Yorker, and over the years, many artists had contributed them. But McGuire was the first to conceive them as a sequence, and his drawings were something altogether new: deceptively simple images that imbued the series with movement and narrative, telling their own unexpected stories. (In a 3-7/8 x 5-7/8 trim size. With illustrations throughout and an introduction by Luc Sante)

Lost Boston Jane Holtz Kay 2006 At once a fascinating narrative and a visual delight, Lost Boston brings the city's past to life. This updated edition includes a new section illustrating the latest gains and losses in the struggle to preserve Boston 's architectural heritage. With an engaging text and more than 350 seldom-seen photographs and prints, Lost Boston offers a chance to see the city as it once was, revealing architectural gems lost long ago. An eminently readable history of the city's physical development, the book also makes an eloquent appeal for its preservation. Jane Holtz Kay traces the evolution of Boston from the barren, swampy peninsula of colonial times to the booming metropolis of today. In the process, she creates a family album for the city, infusing the text with the flavor and energy that makes Boston distinct. Amid the grand landmarks she finds the telling details of city life: the neon signs, bygone amusement parks, storefronts, and windows plastered with images of campaigning politicians-sights common in their time but even more meaningful in their absence today. Kay also brings to life the people who created Boston-architects like Charles Bulfinch and H. H. Richardson, landscape architect and master park-maker Frederick Law Olmsted, and such colorful political figures as Mayors John Honey Fitz Fitzgerald and James Michael Curley. The new epilogue brings Boston's story to the end of the twentieth century, showing elements of the city's architecture that were lost in recent years as well as those that were saved and others threatened as the city continues to evolve.

Rare Breeds Lawrence Alderson 2008-03-04 Breeds of livestock on British farms are changing constantly. New breeds emerge, foreign breeds are imported, while some native breeds lose popularity and become endangered. More than half the native breeds in Britain are rare and potentially threatened with extinction, yet they are an integral part of our history and heritage. Many of them are distinctive animals, and some possess special characteristics that could be of value to the livestock industry. A return to more traditional values was seen towards the end of the twentieth century, and this will serve to enhance the value of native breeds.
Anti-nuclear Protest in Post-Fukushima Tokyo Alexander James Brown 2018-04-19 This book explores the politics of anti-nuclear activism in Tokyo after the Fukushima nuclear disaster of March 2011. Analyzing the protests in the context of a longer history of citizen activism in Tokyo, it also situates the movement within the framework of a global struggle for democracy, from the Arab Spring to Occupy Wall Street. By examining the anti-nuclear movement at both urban and transnational scales, the book also reveals the complex geography of today’s globally connected social movements. It emphasizes the contestation of urban space by anti-nuclear activists in Tokyo and the weaving together of urban and cyber space in their praxis. By focusing on the cultural life of the movement—from its characteristic demonstration style to its blogs, zines and pamphlets—this book communicates activists’ voices in their own words. Based on excellent ethnographic research, it concludes that the anti-nuclear protests in Tokyo after the Fukushima disaster have redefined social movement politics for a new era. Providing an analysis of a unique period in Japan’s contemporary urban history from the perspective of eyewitness observations, this book will be useful to students and scholars of Japanese Politics, Sociology and Japanese Studies in general.

Structures & Architecture Paulo J. da Sousa Cruz 2010-07-02 Although Architecture and Structural Engineering have both had their own historical development, their interaction has led to many fascinating and delightful structures over time. To bring this interaction to a higher level, there is the need to stimulate the inventive and creative design of architectural structures and to persuade architects and structural engineers to work together in this process, exploiting constructive principles and aesthetic and static values. Structures and architecture presents over 250 selected contributions and addresses all major aspects of structures and architecture, including comprehension of complex forms, computer and experimental methods, concrete and masonry structures, emerging technologies, glass structures, innovative architectural and structural design, lightweight and membrane structures, special structures, steel and composite structures, the borderline between architecture and structural engineering, the tectonic of new solutions, the use of new materials, timber structures, the history of the relationship between architects and structural engineers, among others. This book of abstracts and the searchable CD-ROM with full papers contain the contributions presented at the 1st International Conference on Structures and Architecture (ICSA2010). This event was organized by the School of Architecture of the University of Minho, Guimarães, Portugal (July 2010), to promote the synergy between both disciplines. The contributions on creative and scientific aspects in the conception and construction of structures, on advanced technologies and on complex architectural and structural applications represent a fine blend of scientific, technical and practical novelties in both fields. This set is intended for both researchers and practitioners, including architects, structural and construction engineers, builders and building consultants, constructors, material suppliers, product manufacturers and other experts and professionals involved in the design and realization of architectural, structural and infrastructural projects.
Creaselightning Mark Bolitho 2020-11-13 Creaselightning was my third collection of models. It followed from Origami Projects and More Origami projects. The premise of the book was to develop a book around folding techniques rather than what the model was. The project explores folding techniques and different styles of folding. Central to the book is the question "How do I fold?" rather than, "What am I folding?". For most of the projects the folding journey should be as interesting as the destination. I have tried to avoid complexity and kept all the models as simple and elegant as possible. My main consideration is producing models that are enjoyable to make.The next section starts to explore some of the themes in the book and gives a bit more background to the models themselves and why I have included them. Most of all, if you have got this far, I hope you enjoy the origami. It took several years to develop the models and ideas in Creaselightning. If you have any thoughts or comments, do let me know.In 2004 I embarked on working full time as an origami designer. This has given me many more opportunities to write and develop origami books. Although many of these were commissions and designed in conjunction with the respective publishers.
