The Diary of President Barack Obama The White House May 19, 2010 I was going to write about tonight’s state dinner for Mexico and the amnesty plan, but we’ve got a national crisis here! I think somebody’s been snooping in this diary! The pages are all wrinkled! And the most personal entries are dog-eared! WHAT THE HELL’S GOING ON HERE? (WASHINGTON, D.C.) On May 20, 2010, Laura Ingraham received a package from an anonymous source that will change the history of the United States and the legacy of President Barack Obama. While retrieving her automobile from the underground garage at the Watergate complex (where she had just enjoyed her weekly pedicure), Ingraham discovered a manila envelope on the hood of her car. When she picked it up, a deep baritone voice called out from a nearby stairwell: "Just read it. You’ll know what to do." The shadowy figure then disappeared into the darkness without another word. The envelope contained copies of what appeared to be diary entries written by President Barack Obama, his family, and high-ranking administration officials. Because the "diaries" are so revealing, Ingraham felt compelled to release them to the American public and the citizens of the world. Major media outlets love to describe the president as "no drama Obama," but The Obama Diaries tells a different tale. Through these "diary entries," readers will see past the carefully constructed Obama façade to the administration’s true plans to "remake America." In The Obama Diaries, Ingraham hilariously skewers the president and his minions. She takes aim at: •the cynical "razzle-dazzle" marketing of Obama’s radical agenda •the use of the Obama "brand" and family to obscure Obama’s true aims •Michelle Obama’s gardening and anti-obesity initiative; and much more. Informative and hugely entertaining, The Obama Diaries will inspire both laughter and critical thinking about the future of the nation and the man currently at the helm. •the use of the Obama "brand" and family to obscure Obama’s true aims •Michelle Obama’s gardening and anti-obesity initiative; and much more.

Excerpts from Laura Ingraham’s The Obama Diaries Obama on Sarah Palin: "Hell, doesn’t Palin have anything better to do than criticize me? Shouldn’t she be back home shooting some endangered wolf species from a helicopter?" (April 9, 2010) Michelle on being First Lady: "I’ll be damned if all this fabulosity is going to go to waste reading Dr. Seuss to snot-nosed kids all day." (January 23, 2009) Vice President Joe Biden on Michelle Obama: "She’s kind of like a black Hillary Clinton. I mean that in a good way." (May 5, 2009) Obama on his visit to the Vatican: "If I can ingratiate myself with a few more of these red-hats, the pope thing might not be a bad follow-up to the presidency." (July 10, 2009)

Gender Inequality in Our Changing World: A Comparative Approach focuses on the contemporary United States but places it in historical and global context. Written for sociology of gender courses, this textbook identifies conditions that encourage greater or lesser gender inequality, explains how gender and gender inequality change over time, and explores how gender intersects with other hierarchies, especially those related to race, social class, and sexual identity. The authors integrate historical and international materials as they help students think both theoretically and empirically about the causes and consequences of gender inequality, both in their own lives and in the lives of others worldwide.

Einer der größten Unterhaltungsromane der deutschen Literatur mit einer Gesamtauflage von über 2,8 Millionen Exemplaren»Ich glaube, eine Frau kann viel leichter bei einem Mann etwas erreichen, wenn sie einen runden Busen hat. Deshalb habe ich mir vorgenommen, mir morgen vier Taschentücher in den Ausschnitt zu stopfen...«So beginnt Annemarie Selinkos großer historischer Roman, das fiktive Tagebuch der Désirée Clary, Seidenhändler-Tochter aus Marseille, die es tatsächlich zu etwas bringen und in die Weltgeschichte eingehen sollte. Sie war die erste Verlobte Napoleons, heiratete später den französischen Marschall Bernadotte, lebte in der Gunst des Kaisers in Paris und verließ Frankreich schließlich mit ihrem Mann, als der den schwedischen Thron bestieg. Das Buch erreichte in kurzer Zeit Millionenauflagen und wurde in mehr als 25 Sprachen übersetzt. Der Hollywood-Film mit Jean Simmons als Désirée und und Marlon Brando als Napoleon wurde ebenfalls ein Welterfolg, und auch heute noch hat dieser historische Liebesroman nichts von seinem Zauber verloren.

Hannes Strobel entwickelt eine arbeitssoziologische Perspektive auf Erreichbarkeit im Arbeitsleben. Der Wandel des Arbeitslebens in vier Dimensionen zwingt Arbeitende zunehmend, Aushandlungsprozesse um ihre Erreichbarkeit zu führen, um eigene Interessen gegenüber den Anforderungen der Arbeitsorganisation zu behaupten. Ein Analysekonzept ermöglicht es, diese Aushandlungsprozesse anhand vieler empirischer Beispiele aus der Automobilindustrie zu untersuchen. Mit dem Begriff der grundlegenden Erreichbarkeit wird eine Kontrastfolie eingeführt, vor deren Hintergrund von einer erweiterten Erreichbarkeit gesprochen werden kann.

Tait and White provide a much-needed introduction to the complex field of critical care nursing for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Covering the essential aspects of critical care nursing, students are asked to consider the biopsychosocial triggers of critical illness, and are walked through a number of different patient scenarios. Reacting to the Francis Report and other inquiries into standards of care, Tait and White’s humanising approach to critical care places equal emphasis on the 'head, hand and heart' knowledge; evidence, technical and ethical. The book’s depth of clinical knowledge is built and cemented through extended case studies of critically ill patients with a variety of needs. This breadth, along with the author’s unique approach prepares students for courses and assignments in critical care, as well as preparing critical care nurses for clinical decision making and practice. A must-have for anyone studying or working in critical care nursing.
