The Skin Between Us – A Memoir of Race, Beauty and Belonging
Fans of Marian Keyes will love "The Space Between Us", a heart-breaking story of friendship from award-nominated author, Anna McPartlin. From babyhood Eve and Lily were best friends. But one huge fight and 17 years later Eve wakes up from a horrific accident to find her old friend nursing her. At first, their reunion is tentative but during Eve's many months in hospital they confront both the lies of the past and their present failures. And each clearly sees how the other needs to change her life: Lily must get out of an impossible marriage and Eve has to face up to the pain she has caused others. The crisis that brought Eve and Lily together again seems like a blessing that has given them a second chance to be there for each other when they most need someone to lean on. Little do they suspect that their friendship is under a threat that will change the future forever..."Anna McPartlin can make you feel despair and sadness but she can also make you see the light at the end of the tunnel. It's quite an impressive feat. If you haven't already tried Anna McPartlin then you are definitely missing out. She is one of the finest writers around and "The Space Between Us" is one of the best tales of friendship". (Chicklitreviewsandnews.com). "Anna's warmth and humour shine through as she takes the reader on a journey through laughter and tears". ("U Magazine"). Anna McPartlin believes that even the darkest times have their lighter moments and she tells tales that are authentic, deeply emotional and yet often deeply funny. "The Space Between Us" is Anna McPartlin at the height of her storytelling powers. Before her writing career took off Anna was, among other things, a stand-up comedian and a claims adjuster. Her first novel "Pack Up The Moon" was shortlisted as Newcomer of the Year in the Irish Book Awards and her writing has gone from strength to strength ever since. Her other titles include "No Way to Say Goodbye", "The One I Love", and "The Truth Will Out".
BFFs Olivia and Piper star in this fun snapshot of middle grade friendship told in a sweet journal-style book packed with engaging art. This is a follow-up to The Pages Between Us, by beloved middle grade authors Lindsey Leavitt and Robin Mellom. It’s time for the Battle of the Books! When no one from their school signs up for the annual competition, BFFs Piper (The Drama Lover) and Olivia (The Bookworm) decide to put their talents to good use by creating a video to get their classmates excited about the contest. Only things don’t go exactly as planned… The video goes viral, thrusting Olivia into a spotlight she never wanted, while no one seems to remember that Piper wrote, produced and directed the video. And on top of everything, while their video motivated a lot of people to sign up to participate in Battle of the Books, no one seems to have any interest in doing the reading. With the tournament approaching will Piper and Olivia be able to work together to save the day yet again?
This is the first major book to study English architecture between 1945 and 1975 in its entirety. Challenging previous scholarship on the subject and uncovering vast amounts of new material at the boundaries between architectural and social history, Elain Harwood structures the book around building types to reveal why the architecture takes the form it does. Buildings of all budgets and styles are examined, from major universities to the modest cafe. The book is illustrated with stunning new photography that reveals the logic, aspirations and beauty of hundreds of buildings throughout England, at the point where many are disappearing or are being mutilated. "Space, Hope and Brutalism" offers a convincing and lively overview of a subject and period that fascinates younger scholars and appeals to those who were witnesses to this history.
It is an account of this unconditional support from the world’s major power that it is enjoying cutting edge over its Arab neighbours who are reluctant to accept what they perceive an unfriendly Jewish state in their midst. The strategic ties between both countries have affected and are still affecting the regional stability in the Middle East. Israel’s rivalry with the Arab countries marked by several border skirmishes and full-blown regular conventional wars. Israel has always emerged victorious and unharmed in these wars. The US assistance played a critical role in Israel’s superiority over the rest of the region which she exhibits every now and then. The stability of the region is greatly contingent on the relations between Israel and the US and the Arab countries and the future shape of the region is going to be determined by this strategic equation between both countries.
As her well-organised life begins to unravel in the most unexpected ways, Annie Lester, a single mother to three boys (two of them teenagers), has to make some difficult decisions, and question where her loyalties lie. Are her sons defined by who they are, or by what they do? And can a British woman ever really be at home in the Middle East?
The spectroscopic analysis shows that the elements emit a set of characteristic wavelengths called atomic spectrum. Lighter elements have relatively simple spectra with a few characteristic spectral lines but for heavier atoms the spectra contain a large number of lines. Scattered radiations do contain faint radiations with frequencies greater as well as less than the incident frequency. This scattering effect is known as Raman Effect. According to big-bang theory the universe was dense; fire ball at the time of explosion. The luminous band of light scattering from horizon to horizon called Milky Way. Inter stellar medium means space between stars contains atoms & molecules of hydrogen (90%). The space between stars is mainly filled with hydrogen & other molecules as well as dust particles. The space between stars cannot be entirely empty. According to stellar evolution, Sun is formed by condensation of interstellar gas & dust, so also plants. Average distance of Mars from sun is 227 million km. Graduate and Senior undergraduate students in atomic and Space Physics, or engineering students, who intend to do research in Atomic and Space Physics should find this book useful.
In a Minkowski three dimensional space we define a semi-inner-product based on the so-called cosine-Minkowski function. We also construct an orthogonal 3D frame in Birkhoff sense, which is canonically adapted to ruled surfaces: beginning with the generator direction we complete this frame using the strictly convex and centrally symmetric unit ball B, which is described either by supporting function or vector representation. Based on the left-orthogonality defined by ball B, the striction curve of a ruled surface in a Minkowski 3-space can be declared in analogy to the Euclidean case. We define the new vector called “Deformation vector” which helps us to find the Frenet-Serret formulae of the ruled surface in the Minkowski three dimension spaces. In these formulae we insert the M-curvatures and M-Torsions with respect to the Minkowski frame. We also can define a covariant differentiation in a Minkowski 3-space, with this can declare geometric M-parallelity of the vector field of the generator of a skew ruled surface along its Minkowski striction curve. Using the second fundamental form the relation between Euclidean and Minkowski normal vectors is given.
