Frankfurt in One Day
6,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Frankfurt, metropolis at the crossroads of European commerce, is a modern city with international flair and an imposing skyline of high-rises. Yet there is more to Frankfurt than its stock exchange, banks, trade fairs and airport. Walking through the city, the visitor will come across numerous reminders of a rich past dating back to the earliest documentary reference in 794 and even beyond. It was here that German kings were elected in the Middle Ages, and later, Holy Roman Emperors crowned. Until 1866 Frankfurt was an autonomous city where civic spirit could grow unrestricted by the whims of an overlord, and for all its down-to-earth mentality, still produce outstanding cultural achievements. Traces of its great Jewish tradition have also survived. And despite its standing as an international hub, Frankfurt has retained its friendly and approachable atmosphere. In just one day, this self-guided walking tour allows the visitor to experience Frankfurt's more than 1200-year-old history in a way that is both informative and entertaining.

The Ogre in the Basement: And Other Strange Tal...
9,95 € *

If you grew up in the late 60s and 70s, you need to read this book.  It follows the life of a baby boomer who was raised by hard-working World War II era parents who are still not convinced he has learned to wipe himself. He has gone to college, dated, gotten jobs, gotten married, become a father, lost jobs, gotten divorced, learned how to use a computer, and tried to fulfill his civic responsibilities.  Like many others in his generation, he followed the time-honored steps which were supposed to guarantee a successful career, a happy marriage, and a comfortable retirement. Instead, he is struggling to keep the wolf from the door. He is checking out online dating sites, and praying Walmart will have an opening for a geriatric greeter when his arthritic fingers can no longer pound a keyboard. Looking back over his life, he is unsure where it all went wrong, or even if it did.  His wife and kids turned him into the Ogre in the Basement, but even there he has his doubts. Was he mean like Shrek, or was he more like the whiney snot-nosed kid everybody liked to laugh at in the third grade when he threw a crying fit. Is it any wonder Katharine Hepburn said, “Life is hard? After all, it kills you.” If you are not careful, life will kill you. Or, turn you into the Ogre in the Basement.  Read the Ogre in the Basement. Laugh, cry, and get a new perspective on life, the Universe, and everything else. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sonny Dufault. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/101474/bk_acx0_101474_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Pentecostal and Charismatic Spiritualities and ...
88,98 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

For the past sixty years, the Pentecostal and Charismatic movement has played a major role in Zambia. In this book, Naar Mfundisi-Holloway explains the history of this development and its impact on civic engagement. She opens a discussion on church-state relations and explains how the church presented a channel of hope in the wake of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, despite having a history that eschewed civic engagement. In fact, the pandemic propelled the church to work alongside the state in the fight against the disease. Using interviews and historical analysis, this book provides valuable insight into how Pentecostal and Charismatic churches have effectively engaged matters of civic concern in Zambia dating from colonial times.

38,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Hamden is nicknamed 'the Land of the Sleeping Giant' after the series of hills within its bounds that resemble a recumbent giant. But Hamden is much more than the resting place of the legendary 'Hobbomock.' The town's history is illustrated here in Hamden, which contains photographs dating from the 1840s through the late 1900s. These vintage images depict the contours of community life in Hamden. The collection highlights famous residents, including Eli Whitney and Thornton Wilder; local eccentrics, including the wandering Leatherman and William Beamish, a female printer who lived as a man; changes in the land from forest to farmland to suburbia; businesses, institutions, civic organizations, and churches; and people at play-from skaters on Lake Whitney to hikers on the Sleeping Giant.

The game of marbles has been around since the beginning of play. Archeological sites around the world have yielded small round objects of stone, clay, and wood. Many of the sites were graves of children, indicating they were of value to their owners. During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, marbles grew in popularity. Marbles was a game that transcended economic, ethnic, and gender lines. While generally regarded as a 'boys' game,' girls and boys played together on playgrounds and empty lots. It didn't require much equipment-only a few marbles, an open place, and a child's imagination. It could be played outdoors or indoors. Rules and the games played were determined locally by the children playing the game. Any disagreements about either were settled by the players. No formal rules existed until the twentieth century. In the United States, marbles were impacted by the Industrial Revolution. As families moved from farms to cities, the children took their marbles with them. Children of factory workers and factory owners could be found in the same game. Organized marble tournaments began popping up in cities across the United States in the 1920s, sponsored by local newspapers, civic organizations, or recreation departments. In 1922, the first National Marble Tournament was organized in Wildwood, New Jersey. By 1925, the national tournament hosted representatives from more than forty cities across the country. The popularity of marbles continued to grow through the 1930s. World War II led to a suspension of national marble tournaments. The national Veterans of Foreign Wars decided to make local and national marble tournaments one of their national youth programs in 1947. Several social factors may have contributed to the program development: Troops returning from World War II. The marble tournament offered a chance for the returning servicemen to integrate into local society upon their return. Offering a positive male influence to postwar boys. Many boys born after 1930 had grown up without a positive male influence in their lives. Organized marble tournaments at local and city levels provided the youth with that positive male role model. Familiarity with the game. The game of marbles had a long history in the United States dating back to the early 1800s. Many VFW members had played marbles as children, and it easily translated to a popular national activity. Charles Ralls, the VFW commander-in-chief in 1951, addressed the reasons for the marble program. He wrote: The game of marbles helps teach the important requirements for good citizenship. It might be well if a lot of grownups learned to play the game. To reach the marble championship class one has to develop persistence and calm judgement. One has to have skill and a determination to do the job well. Also, the game of marbles calls for fair play and right attitudes. Every player is as good as his shooting. A good loser always comes up smiling… Every boy should be given the right to prove his best qualities-regardless of religious, racial or social status. Local, state, and national VFW members spent many hours sponsoring, organizing, and conducting marble tournaments so young men could learn sportsmanship, persistence, calm judgment, determination, fair play, and good attitudes when facing adversity.
