Then, one evening, you open your front door to find a distraught Hollywood starlet standing in front of you. This is what happens to Arthur Dreyfuss in the village of Long, population 687 inhabitants. But although feigning an American accent, this woman is not all that she seems. For her name is Jeanine Foucamprez, and her story is very different from the glamorous life of a star. Arthur is not all he seems, either; a lover of poetry with a darker past than one might imagine, he has learnt to see beauty in the mundane. THE FIRST THING YOU SEE is a warm, witty novel about two fragile souls learning to look beyond the surface - for the first thing you see isn't always what you get!

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: New York Times Bestselling Author BARBARA DELINSKY FIRST THINGS FIRST From America's beloved storyteller, Barbara Delinsky, comes a classic novel of a woman on the hunt, a man on the run, and one thrillingly romantic hideaway... Chelsea Ross is renowned for her success at locating missing children. But when a wealthy Boston socialite asks her to track down her 40-year-old son, Chelsea is thrown for a loop. The runaway "child" in question, Samuel Prescott London, is a powerful executive who's apparently gone AWOL south of the border. Posing as a tourist, Chelsea manages to find Sam in the outskirts of Cancun—hot, handsome, and happy to be far from the corporate rat race. Chelsea promised Sam's mother she'd bring him back home. But after a few days of playing tourist by his side—and spending nights in his arms—she's not so sure she's ready to give him up...
Download or read book in PDF First Things written by Mary Jacobus and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2020-06-30 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In First Things Mary Jacobus combines close readings with theoretical concerns in an examination of the many forms taken by the mythic or phantasmic mother in literary, psychoanalytic and artistic representations. She carefully explores the ways in which the maternal imaginary informs both unconscious processes and signifying practices at all levels. Her fierce analysis of specific texts and paintings raises questions about the the symbolic and biological maternal body and how they relate to each other in literary and psychoanalytic terms. The invocation of writings by Kleist, Wollstonecraft, Mary Shelley, Malthus and de Sade, along with analysis of French revolutionary iconography and Realist and Impressionist paintings by Eakins and Morisot, make this wide-ranging text a truly interdisciplinary study. First Things sees literary theory and psychoanalysis as mutually illuminating practices. The work of Freud, Klein, Kristeva and Bion shape an inquiry into such topics as population discourse, surrogate motherhood, AIDS, mastectomy and psychoanalysis itself. In addition, Jacobus elaborates on Freud's oedipal preconceptions, Klein's missing theory of signs, memory, melancholia, narcissism and maternal reverie.

Download or read book in PDF First Things First! written by Ruby Takanishi and published by Teachers College Press. This book was released on 2016 with total page 196 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Challenging policymakers, educators, reformers, and citizens to replace piecemeal reforms with fundamental redesign, First Things First! calls for a different way of organizing the American primary school. Ruby Takanishi outlines a new framework for integrating early education with primary education (pre-K–5), including both short- and long-term strategies, that starts with 3- and 4-year-olds. Featuring portraits of primary schools that have successfully integrated pre–K, the book includes resources on dual-language learners, dual-generation family engagement, effective philanthropy, rethinking advocacy, and more. The book centers on four basic questions: Why should the United States design a new primary school as children’s first, widely shared educational experience? How can the educators of the new primary school use new knowledge about how children learn to improve their practice? What will it take to create a new primary school that educates all children well? How can the design of the new primary school reflect demographic, social, linguistic, and cultural changes and adapt to the requirements of a global economy? First Things First! reframes the basic structure of traditional primary education, challenging us to get the early years of a 21st-century public education system off to a new and stronger start. “The vision of a new primary school model in this book should be studied by all workers in the fields of education, human development, and social policy. The scholarship in this book is impeccable and the arguments advanced by this leading scholar are most convincing. Further, the book is beautifully written.” —Edward Zigler, Sterling Professor of Psychology Emeritus, Yale University “Takanishi makes a compelling case that enabling all American children to achieve their potential requires both expansion of high-quality preschool and fundamental changes in how our public elementary schools serve young students.” —Sara Mead, Bellwether Education Partners “Dr. Takanishi has laid out a vision and approach to schooling that is comprehensive, forward-looking, and versed in strong evidence. This is must-reading for educators, leaders, policymakers, and researchers.” —Arthur Reynolds, University of Minnesota

Download or read book in PDF First Things First written by Ken Kamau and published by Zondervan. This book was released on 2016-05-31 with total page 57 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As the young Ken Kamau devoured books on leadership, he became increasingly aware that they were written by and for people who were way ahead of where he was in his life and ministry. He needed to know how one begins to be a leader, not how one continues to lead a large and successful ministry. He has now written the book he would have wanted to read as a young pastor. His key thesis is that if you want to be a blessing to the kingdom, you have to get the basics right. Before you step into the spotlight of ministry life, you need to work on the backstage of your life. So he writes about learning from mistakes and from successes, learning how to be led as well as how to lead, and building and safeguarding a strong marriage. He also deals with the practical issues involved in building and nurturing a strong support team, even in a small church with few resources. The book is infused with humour and practical wisdom acquired the hard way, and also with a passion to fulfil the Great Commission. It thus speaks even to those who are not pastors, for we too are called to serve God faithfully, listen to his word, and use the lessons God has been teaching us to reach out to those who need to hear the message of God's love. We too need to live out that message with integrity in our day-to-day lives.

Book excerpt: All proceeds (100%) from the sale of First Things First go to hunger relief organizations, and organizations that rehabilitate wounded veterans. To see a list of these organizations, or to buy hardcopies of First Things First, visit: www.tomiselin.com.Lined with bold messages and practical advice, First Things First (Pelican Lake Press, $25.00, 223 pp.) takes readers on an insightful journey of how to build a high-performance nonprofit. "Too often early stage nonprofits want to do what's convenient, not what's important," says Iselin, who has spent the last 20 years building some of the nation's most innovative nonprofits. "The nonprofit world is filled with passionate people eager to make a difference. Their intentions are noble, but most leaders of early stage nonprofits lack the experience needed to build a quality organization. They tend to take short cuts, penny pinch, and make hasty decisions. The result is costly disruptions, operational migraines, and in some cases, failure."First Things First is a guidebook for leaders of early stage nonprofits (0-6 years old) and small nonprofits (budgets less than $3 million). It focuses on a set of governing principles, operational structures, and practical tactics board members, executives, and managers should adopt and apply early on in their business lifecycle if they are serious about fulfilling their missions and building sustainable nonprofits of superior quality. Each chapter provides a case study example that relates chapter topics to experiences Iselin had during the five years he spent as chief executive at SVAS. Readers see how the SVAS staff and board overcame a host of challenging situations to create a pathway for the organization to develop pioneering programming and effective operations that propelled SVAS to national recognition and acclaim.What makes First Things First different from other "getting started" and "growing your nonprofit" books is that the principles and tactics found in this book are often overlooked and understated, or leaders wait too long to adopt and apply them. Iselin notes, "Seasoned leaders know costly mistakes made early on can have long-term consequences that can derail the dreams and momentum of fulfilling a worthy mission. First Things First shows leaders how to avoid common mistakes and how critical it is to make important decisions early on that might not seem obvious or intuitive."In the book, readers learn how to hire the best staff and nominate the best board members by identifying a set of uncommon attributes. They learn how to efficiently leverage their human capital, how to unravel the mysteries of developing a healthy relationship between board members and a chief executive, how to develop an engaging culture, how to build a brand that captures the attention of national media, how to raise big money from major donors using rarely applied fundraising techniques, how to dodge the traps of "lip service" passion, and much, much more. The book provides dozens of practical tactics and tips that leaders can quickly put into practice. Most importantly, First Things First teaches leaders how to think about the process of building and operating a high-performance nonprofit. They learn how they do what they do is more important than what they do, and just because they can do something doesn't mean they should do it. First Things First is receiving praise for its hard-hitting, yet inspiring analysis. Iselin says what many in the nonprofit industry are too afraid to say. He addresses sensitive issues such as personal accountability and moral obligations, yet his encouraging words and useful advice give readers hope that their nonprofits can become triumphant successes if they are willing to do the right things, right from the start.
