A cattle drive turns bloody in this western in the USA Today bestselling Ralph Compton series... Luke Deal and his gang are murderers many times over. And Owen, the foreman of the Bar 40 ranch, has interrupted their depravities one time too many. Now a business representative for some British cattle ranchers is buying one of the Bar 40’s best longhorns, and driving it from Texas to Wyoming. Owen and three of the Bar 40’s toughest cowhands are escorting the English tenderfoot on this snake-infested, rustler ambush-laden, hell-for-leather trip. For the greenhorn, it will be the adventure of a lifetime. For the cowboys, it’s what they do. But for Luke Deal’s pack of rabid human wolves, it will be the chance to settle a very old score...

“When Sheila Bair took over as head of the U.S. Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. in 2006, the agency was probably better known for the ‘FDIC’ logo on the doors of the nation’s banks than for anything it did. Now Bair is at the center of the financial crisis, speeding the takeover of failing banks and pressing the mortgage industry to ease loan terms . . . winning praise from Democrats and Republicans.” —BLOOMBERG NEWS, October 3, 2008 Sheila Bair is widely acknowledged in government circles and the media as one of the first people to identify and accurately assess the subprime crisis. Appointed by George W. Bush as the chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in 2006, she witnessed the origins of the financial crisis and in 2008 became—along with Hank Paulson, Ben Bernanke, and Timothy Geithner—one of the key players trying to repair the damage to our economy. Bull by the Horns is her remarkable and refreshingly honest account of that contentious time and the struggle for reform that followed and continues to this day. A level-headed, pragmatic figure with a clear focus on serving the public good, Bair was often one of the few women in the room during heated discussions about the economy. Despite her years of experience and her determination to rein in the private banks and Wall Street, she frequently found herself at odds with Geithner. She is withering in her assessment of some of Wall Street’s finest, and her narrative of Citibank’s attempted takeover of Wachovia is a stinging indictment of how regulators and the banks worked against the public interest at times to serve their own needs. Bair is steadfast in her belief that the American public needs to fully understand the crisis in order to bring it to an end. Critical of the bank bailouts and the Can. $29.99 lax regulation that led to the economic crash, she provides a sober analysis as well as a practical plan for how we should move forward. She helps clear away the myths and half-truths about how we ran our economic engine into the ditch and tells us how we can help get our financial and regulatory systems back on track. As The New Yorker said, “Bair has consistently stood out for her skepticism of Wall Street and for her eagerness to confront the big banks. A Kansas Republican, she has become an unlikely hero to economic liberals, who see her as the counterweight to the more Wall Street–centric view often ascribed to Timothy Geithner, the Treasury Secretary” (July 6, 2009).

Agneta Horn war eine bedeutende schwedische Grafin des 17. Jahrhunderts. Die bislang in der Literaturwissenschaft unterschatzte Niederschrift ihres Lebens mit dem Kurztitel "Agneta Horns leverne "zahlt zu den wertvollsten skandinavischen Selbstzeugnissen dieser Zeit. Der Autor skizziert in seiner Arbeit den Inhalt ihrer Aufzeichnungen, arbeitet die Intentionen der Schriftstellerin heraus und setzt sich mit der Frage auseinander, inwieweit sich ihr Werk einem Genre zuordnen lasst. Wie sich herausstellt, hatte Agneta Horn offensichtlich mehrere Grunde ihr Leben niederzuschreiben. Die Art und Weise, wie sie das im 17. Jahrhundert tat, muss als fortschrittlich, beinahe modern, bezeichnet werden. Daruber hinaus ist es nicht moglich, das untersuchte Selbstzeugnis einer einzelnen Gattung zuzuordnen. Es hat sich gezeigt, dass ihr Werk in diesem Punkt keine Ausnahme bildet."

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 1999 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Linguistik, Note: 1, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat Munchen, Veranstaltung: Wortbedeutung und Pragmatik, 4 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In seinem Aufsatz Logic and Conversation" von 1975 beschaftigt sich H. Paul Grice mit dem Phanomen der Differenz zwischen Gesagtem und Gemeintem. Einen Teil solcher Falle beschreibt er als sogenannte Implikaturen, wobei er sein Augenmerk v.a. auf die conversational implicatures" (Grice 1975, S.307) richtet. Er geht dabei von der Existenz eines Kooperationsprinzips und bestimmter Maximen fur die Gesprachsfuhrung aus, deren Beachtung durch den Sprecher der Horer grundsatzlich voraussetzt. Falls eine Ausserung durch den Sprecher nun auf den ersten Blick gegen diese Prinzipien verstosst oder sie nur massig erfullt, interpretiert der Horer Grice zufolge diese Ausserung in einer Weise um, so dass zumindest das Gemeinte mit den Prinzipien in Einklang ist. Diese Uminterpretierung uber das wortlich Gesagte, die Semantik der Ausserung hinaus, ist das, was Grice als konversationelle Implikatur bezeichnet. Grice und in seiner Nachfolge und Weiterfuhrung auch Stephen Levinson (in dem Kapitel Conversational implicature" seines Grundlagenbuches Pragmatics" von 1983, deutsch 1994) teilen die konversationellen Implikaturen in dreierlei Hinsicht ein: Zum einen nehmen sie eine Einteilung der Implikaturen nach der jeweiligen Gesprachsmaxime vor, die fur das Zustandekommen der Implikatur verantwortlich ist, d.h. also z. B. der Quantitatsmaxime, der Maxime der Art und Weise, etc.. Zum zweiten unterteilt Levinson die konversationellen Implikaturen in Standardimplikaturen, bei denen der Sprecher die Maximen grundsatzlich beachtet, und in Implikaturen, die entstehen, wenn der Sprecher eine oder mehrere der Maximen bewusst missachtet, verletzt oder ausschopft. Als dritte Einteilungskategorie dient Grice und Levinson die Frage, ob die entstandene konversationelle Implika"

Now a major Hollywood film starring Daniel Radcliffe: read it first, if you dare ... Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with one hell of a hangover, a raging headache ... and a pair of horns growing from his temples. Once, Ig lived the life of the blessed: born into privilege, the second son of a renowned American musician, and the younger brother of a rising late-night TV star, Ig had security and wealth and a place in his community. Ig had it all, and more - he had the love of Merrin Williams, a love founded on shared daydreams, mutual daring, and unlikely midsummer magic. Then beautiful, vivacious Merrin was gone - raped and murdered, under inexplicable circumstances - with Ig the only suspect. He was never tried for the crime, but in the court of public opinion, Ig was and always would be guilty. Now Ig is possessed with a terrible new power - with just a touch he can see people's darkest desires - to go with his terrible new look, and he means to use it to find the man who killed Merrin and destroyed his life. Being good and praying for the best got him nowhere. It's time for a little revenge; it's time the devil had his due.

“Hard to put down. From the compelling opening sentence to the last, The Horns of Ruin is much like its protagonist: powerful, relentless and impossible to ignore.”—Miami Herald When humanity ascended, there were three gods. Three became two. Then two became one... Eva Forge is the last of her kind—a Paladin of the dead god Morgan, whose might is slowly waning. Trained for a life of combat in the city of Ash, she remains ever wary of the scions of the other gods, who have their own beliefs and agendas. So when Eva accompanies her lifelong mentor to retrieve a strange young girl of a rival faith, she is both curious and suspicious. And above all, she is ready for a fight. But nothing could have prepared her for an ambush by armored, machine-driven corpses. When the smoke clears both her mentor and the girl are gone—taken captive or worse. Though ordered to stand down and let the authorities handle the investigation, Eva cannot let such a disgrace go unpunished by the power of Morgan. Soon, her initial desire for bloody vengeance becomes a quest for answers. Because the more Eva learns in her search for the truth, the less she realizes she truly knows about her city, her destiny, and the gods themselves. And what Eva uncovers will either transform the world or leave it in ruins... Tim Akers, author of the acclaimed Burn Cycle series, introduces readers to a mystical world where men can become gods, and gods can become murderers... “A complex steampunk world.”— Publishers Weekly “A solidly created world, populated with magic, action and adventure...we haven’t come across such a refreshing take on multiple sci-fi and fantasy forms in a while.”—Sci Fi Now “Establishes itself as a unique fantasy adventure in a world all it’ own...should be at the top of your list.”—Examiner.com
