From the legendary frontman of the Sex Pistols, comes the complete, unvarnished story of his life in his own words. John Lydon is an icon—one of the most recognizable and influential cultural figures of the last forty years. As Johnny Rotten, he was the lead singer of the Sex Pistols-the world´s most notorious band. The Pistols shot to fame in the mid-1970s with songs such as ´´Anarchy in the UK” and ´´God Save the Queen.” So incendiary was their impact at the time that in their native England, the Houses of Parliament questioned whether they violated the Traitors and Treasons Act, a crime that carries the death penalty to this day. The Pistols would inspire the formation of numerous other groundbreaking groups and Lydon would become the unlikely champion of a generation clamoring for change. Following on the heels of the Pistols, Lydon formed Public Image Ltd (PiL), expressing an equally urgent impulse in his character: the constant need to reinvent himself, to keep moving. From their beginnings in 1978 PiL set the groundbreaking template for a band that continues to challenge and thrive to this day, while also recording one of the eighties most powerful anthems, ´´Rise.” Lydon also found time for making innovative dance records with the likes of Afrika Bambaataa and Leftfield. By the nineties he´d broadened his reach into other media while always maintaining his trademark invective and wit, most memorably hosting Rotten TV on VH1. John Lydon remains a captivating and dynamic figure to this day—both as a musician, and, thanks to his outspoken, controversial, and from-the-hip opinions, as a cultural commentator. In Anger is an Energy , he looks back on a life full of incident, from his beginnings as a sickly child of immigrant Irish parents growing up in post-war London to his present status as a vibrant, alternative hero. The book includes 70 black-and-white and color photos, many which are rare or never-before-seen.
Many Americans associate the House of David with its bearded barnstorming baseball teams of the 1920s and 30s. Others may recall the sex scandal associated with the group, a scandal that gave newspapers during the first years after World War I some added spice. Still, others may know it as a religious communal society founded in 1903, which has a few adherents today. What is this strange group and how can these diverse images be reconciled? In the first in-depth study of the House of David, originally published in 1981, Robert S. Fogarty places the sect in the Anglo-Israelite millennial tradition that goes back to 17th-century England, which produced prophets like the mystic Joanna Southcott and from which arose sects in England, Australia, and the United States. Their reading of the Book of Revelation promised the saving of a righteous remnant of humanity who would gather in one place to await the millennium. Evangelist Benjamin Purnell became the seventh prophet in the line of this tradition and, with his bigamous wife, Mary, established a community for its followers in Benton Harbor, Michigan. The House of David was a celibate communal society controlled by the Purnells, and it attracted members who exchanged their worldly goods for the security of salvation. At its height, the community had more than 700 members and prospered by running farms, a canning company, and an amusement park and hosting popular touring bands and the traveling baseball teams. But there were defectors, and from them emerged rumors of oppressive conditions, sexual misconduct on the part of the prophet himself, hastily arranged group marriages, and financial wrongdoing that led to a series of civil suits. The allegations drove Purnell into hiding, and the State of Michigan launched an elaborate trial against the colony. The book is published by The Kent State University Press. 1. Language: English.

Website design with Wordpress - plus real-world tips & tricks to save you time & energy This audiobook will save you a lot of time - and time is money! Here’s my quick story and why I wrote this book: As an entrepreneur in real estate originally, I had set up on my own HTML website way back in 2006 that kept growing with property profiles and images. I had so much media and pages that I was losing track of URLs and menus, seeing as it was a static HTML site, all changes had to be done manually then ´´FTP’d” up to the hosting account, and the site had no CMS (content management system). This was very time-consuming and stressful! Thankfully we have CMSs now. Once I discovered Wordpress in 2012, it changed my online presence forever; in fact, I went wild with it and created up to 30 awesome dynamic websites using various themes and cloned pages for various online businesses I have that made life so much simpler, and the sites looked way better that the old HTML sites. You can even get Wordpress applications that manage all of your Wordpress sites in one dashboard! If you’re a newbie entrepreneur, you have to have a dynamic website today with the ability to make funnel pages and quick text or post changes. The digital economy is growing super-fast and you have to keep up with a fast dynamic website. Unless you are a programmer, you don’t have time to code pages and scripts. With Wordpress you don’t need to know programming; it is so simple to use, in one day you can have a website up and the basics live. I’m going to show you how to set up your own domain and hosted account with Wordpress that you 100% fully control and own. Having a self-hosted domain and website increases the credibility of your business. It saves you money and it helps showcase your work to a wider market. It serves as your online brochure and increases your business value. Wordpress changed the blogging and web design 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Fleming.

Georgina Castle is a successful San Francisco antiques dealer with more than a passing acquaintance with the supernatural. Her fear of again encountering an entity has altered her life and ruined her marriage. But life goes on. One day, while hosting an estate sale for a friend, she purchases a matching pair of early 18th-century French mirrors for her collection. She knows that the owner of the mirrors disappeared without a trace many years ago, but she is curious about their earlier origins. She researches their marks and finds that the maker is Raphaël Verrier, a controversial man about whom her grandfather, a mirror expert, wrote a short book. But just as she begins to read the book, she realizes that something is not right with one of the mirrors. Not only does the image of a woman appear within the glass, it also speaks and begs for help. And as Georgina and her friends encounter the woman´s reflection and try to communicate with her and free her spirit, the story of Raphaël and his relationship with her unfolds on the pages of Georgina´s grandfather´s book. 1.

This program is read by the author.Like Fire & Fury, the gossipy real-life soap opera behind a serious show. When Barbara Walters launched The View, network executives told her that hosting it would tarnish her reputation. Instead, within 10 years, she’d revolutionized morning TV and made household names of her cohosts: Joy Behar, Star Jones, Meredith Vieira, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck. But the daily chat fest didn’t just comment on the news. It became the news. And the headlines barely scratched the surface. Based on unprecedented access, including stunning interviews with nearly every host, award-winning journalist Ramin Setoodeh takes you backstage where the stars really spoke their minds. Here´s the full story of how Star, then Rosie, then Whoopi tried to take over the show, while Barbara struggled to maintain control of it all, a modern-day Lear with her media-savvy daughters. You´ll hear about how so many cohosts had a tough time fitting in, suffered humiliations at the table, then pushed themselves away, feeling betrayed - one nearly quitting during a commercial. Meanwhile, the director was being driven insane, especially by Rosie. Setoodeh uncovers the truth about Star’s weight loss and wedding madness. Rosie’s feud with Trump. Whoopi’s toxic relationship with Rosie. Barbara’s difficulty stepping away. Plus, all the unseen hugs, snubs, tears - and one dead rodent. Ladies Who Punch shows why The View can be mimicked and mocked, but it can never be matched. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ramin Setoodeh.

Make your websites more dynamic by adding a feedback form, creating a private area where members can upload images that are automatically resized, or perhaps storing all your content in a database. David Powers has updated his definitive book to incorporate the latest techniques and changes to PHP, including the arrival of PHP 7. New features include the spaceship and null coalesce operators, generators, using array shorthand syntax for list(), array dereferencing, and array unpacking with the splat operator.

In contrast, this book gives you real value right away through a series of practical examples that you can incorporate directly into your sites, optimizing performance and adding functionality such as file uploading, email feedback forms, image galleries, content management systems, and much more. Each solution is created with not only functionality in mind, but also visual design.

Stunning full-color photographs of every dish make browsing the pages as delightful as cooking the recipes, and beautiful party images provide approachable and creative entertaining ideas.

Danielle has transformed her most cherished family traditions into trustworthy recipes you can feel confident serving, whether you´re hosting a special guest with food allergies, or cooking for a crowd of regular grain-eaters.
