Books Description:

Dubbed the 'man in black', it’s time to look beyond the myth and the rumours of this most charismatic but misunderstood of rock Guitarists. Ritchie Blackmore's early days saw him mixing with colourful characters like Screaming Lord Sutch, Joe Meek and Jerry Lee Lewis. Then he became a defining member of Seventies legends Deep Purple, creating the rock anthems 'Black Night' and 'Smoke On The Water'. Over the years Blackmore's moodiness and eccentric behaviour, his three marriages and his clashes with the law have earned him a reputation as one of rock's most abrasive figures. Yet there are many unexpected sides to this complex man. Black Knight has been written and researched by Jerry Bloom, a fan who first met Ritchie more than twenty years ago and has followed his varied career ever since. The result is a biography rich in detail and full of surprising insights.

Books Description:

Within Tibetan Buddhism has arisen a system of education and a curriculum designed to enable the student to develop a path of reasoning—a consciousness trained in reasoned analysis until capable of understanding first the meaning of religious texts and eventually the true nature of reality. An important aspect of Tibetan logic is that it is used to develop new and valid knowledge about oneself and the world. Included here is a translation of a text by Pur-bu-jok, the Thirteenth Dalai Lama's philosophy tutor on the topic of Signs and Reasonings—a manual introducing beginners to the principles, vocabulary, and concepts of the system of logic. The purpose of Pur-bu-jok's text is to lay a foundation for understanding how valid cognition is acquired. What is validity? How is valid knowledge acquired? What can be known? Further, what knowledge can be acquired through reasoning that will lead one to spiritual development and even to buddhahood? Katherine Rogers has enriched the translation with commentary by several eminent scholars of the Ge-luk-pa order, revealing a marvelous path that draws one into the heart of the Tibetan approach to knowledge and self-transformation. It is fundamental to Tibetan thought that true knowledge is practical, useful, and ultimately transforming and liberating. Such knowledge is far from obvious, but it can be attained through correct reasoning. Thus, logic is an important tool—a part of the spiritual path leading ultimately to complete self-transformation.

Books Description:

Today's parents are increasingly replacing nursery rhymes with the latest pop songs, and fairy tales - now thought too scary for little ones - with cute stories about farmyard animals and talking trains.Until recently, weird tales of fairy curses and flesh-eating ogres were considered suitable bedtime reading. And the strange-sounding and sometimes violent rhymes we learned by rote were often taught to us in school. But have you ever asked yourself what on earth they were about? And what exactly were the morals and lessons we were meant to learn from them?Here Comes a Chopper to Chop Off Your Head delves into the origins of the best-known rhymes and tales to uncover a legacy of folk superstition, rotten royal families, execution, child marriage, cannibalism, and the multitude of other random acts of cruelty that make up any classic treasury.You'll learn about the bloody history of Mary,Mary, Quite Contrary; why Margery Daw, the subject of an innocent-seeming seesaw game, was accused of being a 'dirty slut'; and how pretending to decapitate your little friends to the tune of Oranges and Lemons became an acceptable pastime.You'll also find out about the terrifying events that befell the first Sleeping Beauty when she finally woke up; how Snow White's stepmother really died; and just who the wolf was in Little Red Riding Hood.

When I decided to walk across the bed of a sea; stupidly easy of course; the avatar did not drown. Then I discovered the always run button with regard to other avatars, and hence ended my anxiety at being unable to operate the communicate box. I never heard from the virtual friend I had earlier made and sent second life to the waste bin after I signed off or escaped.

The anthology follows a similar format to the BBC series itself, while also offering paper chains of poems about the landscape and nature of Britain, transcripts of contemporary poet interviews, and a short introduction to each lead poem.

Books Description:

It is March 2020. I am working at a sales agent in the roof industry and I have decent income. It’s risky because I have to climb old buildings roofs but I like it. Suddenly due to COVID-19 my county dictates a state an emergency and I have no other choice but to stay with my kids at home. My wife is working in the medical system so it’s her duty to help by going to work. Because she had a greater risk to be infected by the new virus I had to stay alone with my kids to protect my older parents that were helping me before, prior the COVID era… I love my kids, a boy, age five and a girl age two so I’ve made everything possible to take care of them while keeping them entertained. I’ve cooked, sang, played with them in every possible way and from time to time we’ve watched an animation movie. One of those movies watched together was Frozen 2. After we’ve watched the movie, with the kids enjoying it some ideas engulfed my mind. I wrote my ideas into a word document called Frozen 3 script. John Steinbeck said "Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen." My rabbits multiplied therefore after one month of writing and watching over my kids the script was ready… It wasn’t perfect as it had many spelling and expression problems as I am not a native English writer but the ideas inside and the actual story were in my opinion at least great… You see I wrote before, self-published a book on Amazon and I have an YouTube Channel where I wrote stories and amazingly 33k subscribers enjoyed the way I write despite in English the imperfect style. I know when a story has a lot of potential that’s why I’ve decided to share the story to Disney, the legal owners of Frozen. God knows I’ve tried every possible way to contact them but I’ve always received the same answer “It’s our policy not to accept any unsolicited creative ideas and submissions” and other similar replies. After one and a half month of trying and failing to contact anyone from Disney I am tired so I’ve decided to publish the script because I love it and I don’t want to die buried deep inside my computer’s bits. I don’t have time to correct it thoroughly or adapt it from a script to a literal form because the state of emergency ended fourteen days ago and I’ve returned to my job. I have to work to sustain my family. I want to share this story/script to everyone interested to read it… I want objective and honest answers about the actual story. I won’t mind if you criticize me for not using the best expression to describe the story or because of my misspelling yet the scope of this writing is to deliver an amazing story. I wanted to imprint a Disney Frozen style logical, not violent, funny, interesting, dramatic and musical while maintaining everything we loved in Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf and Sven including their personalities in a logical no nonsense story. I also wanted to deliver a reason for Elsa’s powers, why was she born with the ability to create ice. You will tell me if I’ve succeeded or not !
