Unsere Galaxie. Wunderschön und vielfältig, in jedweder Hinsicht. So viele Orte, Geschöpfe und Möglichkeiten, dass sie kein Verstand jemals wirklich erfassen kann. Doch dass alles beinhaltet auch eine Wahrheit, die grausame, aber ungelogene Wahrheit - unsere Galaxie ist kalt und unbarmherzig. Ein Leben vergeht und sie merkt es nicht. Eine Zivilisation wird ausgelöscht und es kümmert sie nicht. Die Galaxie lässt die Zeit ohne Unterlass fließen, in eine Periode, in der die Menschheit die Sterne erreicht hat und sie bereist, um sich ihren Platz in den dunklen Weiten zu sichern. Alleine ist sie dabei allerdings nicht, denn es gibt noch andere, ambitionierte Spezies und viele davon sind schon sehr viel länger auf dieser Reise als die Menschheit. Inmitten dieser galaktischen Gemeinschaft, die sich noch immer vom schrecklichsten aller Kriege erholt, lebt Elaine Kysaek. Eine junge Frau, die ihr Dasein fristet und ihren Platz scheinbar gefunden hat. Dass hält sie jedoch nicht von gelegentlichen Träumen ab und dem Wunsch nach mehr, auch wenn sie nicht mehr wirklich daran glaubt, dass sie jemals etwas besonders sein oder mehr haben wird, doch sie kennt die nahe Zukunft nicht. Bald schon wird Kysaeks Leben eine drastische Wendung nehmen, die weder sie noch irgendwer jemals hätte erahnen können. Ihr steht eine lange Reise bevor, bei der sie nicht nur sich, sondern viele andere verändern und beeinflussen wird. Sie wird sich gezwungen sehen Entscheidungen zu treffen, denn dass ist was alles Leben ausmacht - Entscheidungen und sind manche davon groß und ohne Wirkung, können kleine das größte Übel nach sich ziehen. Kysaek wird Hoffnung geben, genauso wie Leid verursachen, Bewunderung ernten und Hass auf sich ziehen. Das ist ihre Geschichte. Das sind die unerzählten Geschichten einer Galaxie ...

Memories and Lives of Victorian Kooris

'I'm your half-brother and I'm here to stay. This is my home.' With these words Wilmot Abraham sought refuge with his white relations. Wilmot was the best-known Aboriginal in the Warrnambool district of Victoria, a man who maintained the old way of life long after his people were dispossessed. Local farmers spoke of him as 'the last of his tribe'. Few were aware that his father had been a white lad working as a boundary rider on the Western District frontier; and only the Aboriginal community knew that Wilmot had barely escaped with his life from the violent seizure of his mother's people's country. In Untold Stories, Jan Critchett presents a series of moving Aboriginal biographies from the Western District of Victoria, drawing both on the oral tradition of local Koori Elders and on official records. Wilmot's is one of the many untold stories that appear here for the first time. Untold Stories opens our eyes to a number of remarkable individuals who managed to make a life for themselves in the interstices of the society that had dispossessed them. Their long-running battle to maintain their culture and their connection to country, in the face of a regime that seemed bent on denying their humanity, is both humbling and inspiring.

Las Vegas, the Untold Stories

...That Made Sin City the Entertainment Capital of the World

Youre about to enter a city that has no equal. It was built by extraordinary people with imaginative minds. Did they drink? Not sure, but why else would they build it in a Nevada desert? Some say you can go anywhere in the world and discover that people not only know about Las Vegas--theyd give anything to get there. True. As soon as I graduated from college I took an all-night bus to reach a city Id heard of, but never seen. I stayed 30 years. Damn good years, too. And the mystique of the entertainers and the film stars and the elaborate restaurants and 24-hour-a-day casinos never wore off. I spent 20 of my years at the Sahara, on the Strip, got inside the gambling business in the 60s and loved it. Helped it, too, with my writing and my inventions. The Mob was still around in those days. They were the first venture capitalists and owned a piece of every casino in town. Did that stop anyone from having a good time? Of course not. Gradually the Mob faded away--which is what happens when an FBI office with 15 agents sets up shop in town. But the gaiety didnt stop for a second, even when corporations realized they were the big guys now. Our Sahara entertainment director stunned us in 1964 when he made a deal with The Beatles to play two shows. I met the boys after dark at a small Las Vegas airport, rode with them to the Sahara and helped get them to their suite before teen age girls tore their clothes off. So take a chance, have a seat and enjoy that drink in front of you. Its time to start the show. --John Romero

Aids Sutra

Untold Stories from India

Author: N.A

Publisher: Random House

ISBN: 1409079759

Category: Literary Collections

Page: 352

View: 1478

India is home to almost three million HIV cases. But AIDS is still a disease stigmatized and shrouded in denial. It is stigma that prevents people from openly discussing the facts around HIV, and keeps them from getting treatment. Stigma leads to discrimination against HIV positive people in hospitals, schools and even among families. In this ground-breaking anthology, sixteen of India's well-known writers go on the road to tell the human story behind the epidemic. William Dalrymple meets the devadasis ('temple women'), many of whom have become victims of HIV; Kiran Desai travels to the coast of Andhra where the sex workers are considered the most desirable and Salman Rushdie spends a day with Mumbai's transgenders. These writers travel the country to talk to housewives, vigilantes, homosexuals, police and sex-workers and together they create a complex and gripping picture of AIDS in India: who it is affecting, how and why. Eye-opening, hard-hitting and moving, AIDS Sutra will show you a side to India rarely seen before. This anthology was produced in collaboration with Avahan, the India AIDS Initiative of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Proceeds will be used to support programs for children affected by HIV in India.

Women Vietnam Veterans

Our Untold Stories

Author: Donna A. Lowery

Publisher: AuthorHouse

ISBN: 1504913981

Category: History

Page: 750

View: 9642

Women Vietnam Veterans: Our Untold Stories, by Donna Lowery, a Vietnam veteran, chronicles the participation of American military women during the Vietnam War. This little-known group of an estimated 1,000 women from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force left its mark in Vietnam from 1962 to 1973. They served in a myriad of duties from intelligence analysts, flight controllers, clerk-typists, translators, physical therapists, dietitians and communications specialists among many others. Our Untold Stories allows the women to speak for themselves about their experiences, and, for the first time ever, brings names, facts and figures together in one literary work. The purpose of the book is to be historically significant to future researchers. The history of the military women in Vietnam began in 1962 with Army Major Anne Marie Doering. She was born in what became North Vietnam. Her father was a French officer, her mother a German citizen. When her father died, her mother married an American businessman. Her service in Vietnam as a Combat Intelligence Officer is a compelling story of the US military women in a war zone. It was not until 1965 that the US Women’s Army Corps (WAC) sent two women as advisors to assist the newly formed Vietnam Women’s Armed Forces Corps. The following year, the Army authorized the establishment of a WAC Detachment in Vietnam. Soon, thereafter, the Air Force, Marine Corps and Navy also sent women to serve in various capacities. In March 1973, under the Paris Peace Accords, the last women left Vietnam along with the remaining men. The impact they had in Vietnam set the stage for the expansion and integration of women into additional roles in the military. Today, women serve in areas of active combat, demonstrating their abilities and dedication to the mission.

Iraqi Women

Untold Stories From 1948 to the Present

Author: Nadje Sadig Al-Ali

Publisher: Zed Books

ISBN: 9781842777459

Category: History

Page: 292

View: 6338

Nadje al-Ali challenges the myths and misconceptions which have dominated debates about Iraqi women, bringing a much needed gender perspective to bear on a central political issue of our time. She traces the political history of Iraq from post-colonial independence, to the emergence of a women's movement in the 1950s and Saddam Hussein's early policy of state feminism. The book also discusses the increases in social conservatism, domestic violence and prostitution, and shows that, far from being passive victims, Iraqi women have been, and continue to be, key political actors. The impact of Islam on women's lives is analysed in the context of the recent invasion and occupation, and it is argued that US-led calls for liberation may in the long term serve to oppress the women of Iraq further.
