In this collection, founding members of the organization and contemporary activists reflect on the legacy of its contributions to black feminism and its impact on today's struggles.

Remember that thing you just can't get over? Betrayal, tragedy, rejection—we've all experienced loss and injustice on a magnitude God never designed us for. Now that we've faced it, we're older, wiser . . . and rightly on guard against this fallen world. Or are we? Could it be that our cranky moods and critical words aren't just momentary lapses but evidence of a fatal poison creeping into our spiritual root system? Bitterness—the word no one wants to say—has taken hold. From her own experience getting free, Tracey Bickle honestly walks us through recognizing and overcoming the bitterness lurking within and its resulting chaos. Offenses will come; will they ruin us or will we emerge tender, victorious, and joyful? How should we treat those who have sinned against us, and how can we be healed from the pain of heart injuries? Join Tracey and discover the wise counsel of God to free us from the chaos of bitterness and release us into peace.

Shelley Seale and Keith Hajovsky are self-professed world nomads, who travel just about any time and place they have the opportunity - and usually for free, or very close to it. Between the two of them, they have visited more than 50 countries and logged millions of miles. Are you tired of the conventional wisdom which says that you have to spend a lot of money to travel the world? Do you want to learn how two well-traveled vagabonds have managed to do it for decades, as well as the travel-cheap insights they have accumulated over many years of gallivanting around the globe? There are many travel resources and guidebooks out there that tell you how to travel on the cheap, how to save money, how to get the best airfares. The authors have read and used many of them, and there are lots of good ones around. How To Travel For Free (or pretty damn near it!) is different in that in these pages, Seale and Hajovsky share their own personal resources and experiences to show ways in which you can travel not just cheaply, but for free - or damn close to it! If you or someone you know wants to learn how to see and experience the world without the need to have or to spend large amounts of money like so many in the travel industry will have you believe, then buy this book now and start your own personal journey toward your dreams of independent travel freedom!

The purpose of this book is to explain Free Cash Flow and how to use it to increase investor return. The author explains the differences between Free Cash Flow and GAAP earnings and lays out the disadvantages of GAAP EPS as well as the advantages of Free Cash Flow. After taking the reader step-by-step through the author's Free Cash Flow statement, the book illustrates with formulas how each of the four deployments of Free Cash Flow can enhance or diminish shareholder return. The book applies the conceptual building blocks of Free Cash Flow and investor return to an actual company: McDonald's. The reader is taken line-by-line through the author's investor return spreadsheet model: (1) three years of McDonald's historical financial statements are modeled; (2) a one-year projection of McDonald's Free Cash Flow and investor return is modeled. Five other restaurant companies are compared to McDonald's and each other using both Free Cash Flow and GAAP metrics.

Every day we seem to make and act upon all kinds of free choices - some of them trivial, and some so consequential that they may change the course of our life, or even the course of history. But are these choices really free? Or are we compelled to act the way we do by factors beyond our control? Is the feeling that we could have made different decisions just an illusion? And if our choices are not free, why should we be held morally responsible for our actions? This Very Short Introduction, written by a leading authority on the subject, looks at a range of issues surrounding this fundamental philosophical question, exploring it from the ideas of the Greek and medieval philosophers through to the thoughts of present-day thinkers. It provides a interesting and incisive introduction to this perennially fascinating subject. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

No mortal has ever sailed to the end of the world and returned to tell the tale. Legend says that the southern seas are full of monsters, lethal storms, and monstrous entities even the gods cannot conceive. Only a brave hero or a reckless fool would ever willingly venture into these deadly waters. Prince Tojas Malock travels to the southern seas in response to the summons from a goddess he has never met. To conquer these seas, Malock recruits the finest crew money can buy: An intelligent but haughty mage, an old fisherman with a mysterious past, a young female assassin, and a woman who knows far more than she lets on. With his ragtag crew of sailors behind him, Malock heads to the end of the world, ready for whatever the seas have to throw at him. But with mortal-eating gods, murderous pirates, and a traitor within the crew itself, Malock's voyage may end in tragedy.

Publisher: Morgan James Publishing
Ten principles to overcome adversity from a former South African special forces soldier who survived 13 years as a prisoner of war. Reon Schutte has led a remarkable life. A South African solider captured in a cross border raid into Zimbabwe in 1990, he spent nearly thirteen years in that country’s infamously brutal Chikurubi prison. Since his pardon and release, he has presented his triumphant story of survival and transformation to one million people around the world, from business executives to students, prisoners to cancer survivors, war veterans to government leaders. Now in his highly anticipated first book—written with award-winning author, journalist and certified life coach, Maggie Kuhn Jacobus—Reon shares his epic personal life journey, holding readers spellbound with an inspiring recounting of overcoming inconceivable adversity. The keys to his resiliency are The 10 Principles: the major lessons he learned that allowed him to be free, even while imprisoned. With concrete exercises to put the Principles into practice, readers are given tools to break out of their own personal prisons of fear, hate, anger, lack of forgiveness and more, in order to experience a life of happiness and peace, regardless of circumstances. Reon’s journey demonstrates the potential for all humans to overcome adversity, while The 10 Principles illustrate the soul’s resourcefulness to use trying circumstances for transformation. “Reon has a fantastic story and message. You’ll emerge . . . enlightened, enthusiastic and empowered to take control of your destiny.” —Matt Stewart, business owner/former Global Chair, Entrepreneur’s Organization

Author: Paul Butler
Publisher: The New Press
Drawing on his personal fascinating story as a prosecutor, a defendant, and an observer of the legal process, Paul Butler offers a sharp and engaging critique of our criminal justice system. He argues against discriminatory drug laws and excessive police power and shows how our policy of mass incarceration erodes communities and perpetuates crime. Controversially, he supports jury nullification—or voting “not guilty” out of principle—as a way for everyday people to take a stand against unfair laws, and he joins with the “Stop Snitching” movement, arguing that the reliance on informants leads to shoddy police work and distrust within communities. Butler offers instead a “hip hop theory of justice,” parsing the messages about crime and punishment found in urban music and culture. Butler’s argument is powerful, edgy, and incisive.

In these economically constrained times, the Bible's emphasis on freedom and love offers both relief from the burdens we carry and a radical new way to live. The release from slavery and debt that lay at the heart of Israel's cycle of Jubilee celebrations reveals that the whole of the Law and Prophets, as fulfilled by Christ, is about loving God and loving our neighbour. But in practice it's difficult not to be influenced by consumerism and individualism. How do we guard against this? How can we apply our faith in practical ways? What disciplines may we put in place to help us worship God in every area of our lives?

Free Play is about the inner sources of spontaneous creation. It is about where art in the widest sense comes from. It is about why we create and what we learn when we do. It is about the flow of unhindered creative energy: the joy of making art in all its varied forms. Free Play is directed toward people in any field who want to contact, honor, and strengthen their own creative powers. It integrates material from a wide variety of sources among the arts, sciences, and spiritual traditions of humanity. Filled with unusual quotes, amusing and illuminating anecdotes, and original metaphors, it reveals how inspiration arises within us, how that inspiration may be blocked, derailed or obscured by certain unavoidable facts of life, and how finally it can be liberated - how we can be liberated - to speak or sing, write or paint, dance or play, with our own authentic voice. The whole enterprise of improvisation in life and art, of recovering free play and awakening creativity, is about being true to ourselves and our visions. It brings us into direct, active contact with boundless creative energies that we may not even know we had.
