Unser Tipp
55,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Odin New York konnte mit insgesamt 11 Kreationen die Welt der Düfte erobern. Jeder einzelne Duft aus dem Hause Odin versprüht eine ganz eigene und unverkennbare Textur, die sich von anderen Düften abhebt und fortan sogar abseits von klassischen Parfums erhältlich ist. Mit der Accessoires Kerzen Kollektion begeht die New Yorker Marke neue Wege und vermarktet die Kreationen nun auch als praktische Duftkerze - darunter natürlich auch 03 Century. Das Wachs der Kerze wurde mit den angenehmen Duftstoffen versetzt, wodurch es die lieblichen Nuancen sofort versprüht, wenn der Docht der Kerze angezündet wird. Perfekt für das Wohnzimmer, die Terrasse, den Balkon oder das Gästezimmer.Eleganter Duft aus dem Jahr 2009Die Odin New York 03 Century Duftkerze ist stark von der Zypresse inspiriert, welche vor allem in den prominenteren Nuancen stark hervorsticht. Dennoch ist der Duft keinesfalls schwermütig oder melancholisch, denn Brisen der frischen Pfefferminze sorgen stets für ein sehr belebendes und animierendes Duftbild, welches in den Sommer ebenso gut wie in den Winter passt. Die Accessoires Kerzen geben sich mit diesen zwei Duftstoffen aber keinesfalls zufrieden, denn auch Nuancen von Patchouli, Myrrhe und Vetiver können ausgemacht werden, sobald die Kerze mindestens 10 Minuten am Stück brennt. Sehr natürliche Nuancen, die direkt aus den großen Wäldern dieser Welt stammen könnten, runden den Duft ab. Darunter finden sich zum Beispiel Ambra, Moos und auch Moschus.Optischer Blickfang und Verwöhnprogramm für den GeruchssinnDie 03 Century Duftkerze der Marke Odin New York ist aber nicht nur von ihrem Duft her ein unschlagbarer Faktor für Wohnlichkeit und eine gelungene Atmosphäre. Selbst die Optik dieser feinen Accessoires Kerzen weiß absolut zu überzeugen. Die New Yorker Marke kombiniert eine sehr klassische Gestaltung mit einigen modernen und sogar orientalischen Einflüssen. Insgesamt macht die feine Optik der Kerze einen absolut gelungenen Eindruck.

How I Got Moral Courage - And You Can, Too: A S...

What is moral courage? Put simply, it's the willingness to be original, unique, and different from everyone else in your group. And it's one of the hardest things to do. Because you'll have to take criticism from parents, friends, preachers, teachers and bosses who want you to conform. Here's what Bobby Kennedy said about moral courage. He was speaking to South African students in 1966 - the heyday of apartheid: "Few are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change." That's why Irshad Manji founded the Moral Courage Project at New York University's Wagner School of Public Service. The Moral Courage Project teaches young leaders to break silences for the sake of a greater good. Her focus is to teach, mentor, and engage undergraduates. In this brave and thought provoking speech, Irshad Manji addresses New York University students on how to find the courage to live by a bright moral compass. A must listen for students, teachers, parents, future leaders, and anyone seeking the courage to take the road less-traveled, How I Got Moral Courage - And You Can, Too is full of concrete suggestions, food for thought, and an uplifting sense of possibility and social responsibility. Here, Irshad Manji does more than inspire hope for a brighter tomorrow: she gives us the tools and the confidence to begin changing the world today. 1. Language: English.

Looking for Lorraine

Winner of the 2019 PEN/Jacqueline Bograd Weld Award for Biography Winner of the Lambda Literary Award for LGBTQ Nonfiction Winner of the Shilts-Grahn Triangle Award for Lesbian Nonfiction Winner of the 2019 Phi Beta Kappa Christian Gauss Award A New York Times Notable Book of 2018 A revealing portrait of one of the most gifted and charismatic, yet least understood, Black artists and intellectuals of the twentieth century. Lorraine Hansberry, who died at thirty-four, was by all accounts a force of nature. Although best-known for her work A Raisin in the Sun, her short life was full of extraordinary experiences and achievements, and she had an unflinching commitment to social justice, which brought her under FBI surveillance when she was barely in her twenties. While her close friends and contemporaries, like James Baldwin and Nina Simone, have been rightly celebrated, her story has been diminished and relegated to one work-until now. In 2018, Hansberry will get the recognition she deserves with the PBS American Masters documentary "Lorraine Hansberry: Sighted Eyes/Feeling Heart" and Imani Perry's multi-dimensional, illuminating biography, Looking for Lorraine. After the success of A Raisin in the Sun, Hansberry used her prominence in myriad ways: challenging President Kennedy and his brother to take bolder stances on Civil Rights, supporting African anti-colonial leaders, and confronting the romantic racism of the Beat poets and Village hipsters. Though she married a man, she identified as lesbian and, risking censure and the prospect of being outed, joined one of the nation's first lesbian organizations. Hansberry associated with many activists, writers, and musicians, including Malcolm X, Langston Hughes, Duke Ellington, Paul Robeson, W.E.B. Du Bois, among others. Looking for Lorraine is a powerful insight into Hansberry's extraordinary life-a life that was tragically cut far too short.

Ode Consciousness
76,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Ode Consciousness examines a preeminent literary form in its three-thousand-year history, navigating between philosophy and literature, offering cross-cultural perspectives on a poetic logic informed by polar intensities of sensuous cognition. Making a double incision on the corpus, Robert Eisenhauer interprets works by Henry Vaughan and the modernist Frank O'Hara, foregrounding the text, but also the text(-ile) message, and the dialogical weave of enunciation. The ancient Chinese ode, translated by Karlgren and estranged by Pound, anchors sentience in the flora and fauna of physical nature, and the I Jing or Book of Changes offers insights on poetry, psychoanalysis, and aleatoriness per se.The rise of the ode in the West is contemporary with that of a philosophical discourse concerning clarity and obscurity of thought. While Milton widens the esoteric scope, Lovelace concretizes ode consciousness through the image of a frozen grasshopper ("green ice"), whose non-longevity is contrasted with the human capacity for survival through friendship. Translating the "Polish Horace" (Sarbiewski), Coleridge prepares the ground for the lyricism of Keats and Shelley, raising the neural stakes through passages of lingering, delay, and intoxication. A negative capability inclusive of desire as well as nihilation inhabits Jalal al-Din Rumi and the Arabic qasida.Affliction, a key concept for the Baroque, is discussed in the context of film noir, while Hegel's privileging in the Aesthetics of Schiller's "Song of the Bell" is seen as part of a larger attempt to censure the radical re-Pindarization and revolutionary retexting of the ode, most notably in Klopstock and Hölderlin. The author analyzes the role played by impersonality in Yeats's attempt to recrystallize Keatsian and Confucian sensibility through "annotated seeing" and the opening of windows of clairvoyant perception. Eisenhauer also suggests parallels between O'Hara's autumnal glimpses of New York City at the height of modernism and Keatsian sensibility. Ode Consciousness concludes by examining the return of the repressed in the graphic novels of Osamu Tezuka, thereby enriching our understanding of the ode's perennial relevance.

This open access monograph argues established democratic norms for freedom of expression should be implemented on the internet. Moderating policies of tech companies as Facebook, Twitter and Google have resulted in posts being removed on an industrial scale. While this moderation is often encouraged by governments - on the pretext that terrorism, bullying, pornography, "hate speech" and "fake news" will slowly disappear from the internet - it enables tech companies to censure our society. It is the social media companies who define what is blacklisted in their community standards. And given the dominance of social media in our information society, we run the risk of outsourcing the definition of our principles for discussion in the public domain to private companies. Instead of leaving it to social media companies only to take action, the authors argue democratic institutions should take an active role in moderating criminal content on the internet. To make this possible, tech companies should be analyzed whether they are approaching a monopoly. Antitrust legislation should be applied to bring those monopolies within democratic governmental oversight.Despite being in different stages in their lives, Anne Mette is in the startup phase of her research career, while Frederik is one of the most prolific philosophers in Denmark, the authors found each other in their concern about Free Speech on the internet.The book was originally published in Danish as Dit opslag er blevet fjernet - techgiganter & ytringsfrihed.Praise for 'Your Post has been Removed'"From my perspective both as a politician and as private book collector, this is the most important non-fiction book of the 21st Century. It should be disseminated to all European citizens. The learnings of this book and the use we make of them today are crucial for every man, woman and child on earth. Now and in the future."Jens Rohde, member of the European Parliament for the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe"This timely book compellingly presents an impressive array of information and analysis about the urgent threats the tech giants pose to the robust freedom of speech and access to information that are essential for individual liberty and democratic self-government. It constructively explores potential strategies for restoring individual control over information flows to and about us. Policymakers worldwide should take heed!"Nadine Strossen, Professor, New York Law School. Author, HATE: Why We Should Resist It with Free Speech, Not Censorship

'This book deals with a form of public discourse that also occurs in everyday interaction: image restoration. When one encounters certain messages (criticism, complaints, accusations, blame, censure, condemnation, rebukes, reproaches, objections) or is suspected of wrongdoing, failed obligations, mistakes, or embarrassments, one needs to know how to respond, both mentally and behaviorally. The author is very thorough in his list of situations that lead to image restoration and his list of responses is the most extensive I've seen. We all know bits and pieces about image restoration, but Benoit pulls it all together in a comprehensive work on the subject.'--Dudley D. Cahn, State University of New York at New Paltz

Now available from Thomas Wolfe’s original publisher, the final novel by the literary legend, that “will stand apart from everything else that he wrote” ( The New York Times Book Review)—first published in 1940 and long considered a classic of twentieth century literature. A twentieth-century classic, Thomas Wolfe’s magnificent novel is both the story of a young writer longing to make his mark upon the world and a sweeping portrait of America and Europe from the Great Depression through the years leading up to World War II. Driven by dreams of literary success, George Webber has left his provincial hometown to make his name as a writer in New York City. When his first novel is published, it brings him the fame he has sought, but it also brings the censure of his neighbors back home, who are outraged by his depiction of them. Unsettled by their reaction and unsure of himself and his future, Webber begins a search for a greater understanding of his artistic identity that takes him deep into New York’s hectic social whirl; to London with an uninhibited group of expatriates; and to Berlin, lying cold and sinister under Hitler’s shadow. He discovers a world plagued by political uncertainty and on the brink of transformation, yet he finds within himself the capacity to meet it with optimism and a renewed love for his birthplace. He is a changed man yet a hopeful one, awake to the knowledge that one can never fully “go back home to your family, back home to your childhood…away from all the strife and conflict of the world…back home to the old forms and systems of things which once seemed everlasting but which are changing all the time.”
