"This book compares the refugee status determination (RSD) regimes of three popular asylum seeker destinations. Despite similarly high levels of political resistance to accepting asylum seekers, because administrative justice is conceptualized and organized differently in every state, they vary in how they draw the line between refugee and non-refugee"--

Writing has a way of helping me express things as I dwell. Bits and pieces of general realizations as I grow. Spiritually and mentally through the years I bloomed. Like a beautiful peacock my life was filled with time warps of knowledge that unveiled my life. Each feather represents a place, people ,or an event. These things became very precious to me. I felt a need to share the things I knew .people would know that someone experienced the things they have gone through. The participation ,my growth , the fall and ,the rise are the overall picture of the beauty and, the glory of those that honors God everyday with their life.

A letter, from Pope Urban, is sent to Anne Mercer, Sicari Ductus of the Templar Nuns, prophesying the second coming, but before this great event, Armageddon must occur. Anne is also told that the Lord has unleashed his Mighty Hunter to cleanse the earth in preparation. The Hunter will be born as man and will precede Christ’s return. The task is placed upon her and her Templar Nuns to find and guide the Hunter before anyone else does. She sends out her assassins to search the world for signs. She finds him and names him Mark Baal. She and her order are forced to do unspeakable acts to protect him and the rest of humanity. Saint Michael, the archangel and the Lord’s commander, has also sent his messengers to find the Hunter, but his purposes clash with the Templars. He wishes to use the Hunter in the greater battle between heaven and hell regardless of the damage it does to humanity. Anne is forced into hiding with the child, but she knows it will only be a matter of time before they are found. Saint Michael finds them on Baal’s 30th birthday and the Archangel attempts to undo Anne’s training, searching for ways to release the Hunter’s burning fire from within and begin Apocalypse. Saint Michael and the Templars are each consumed by their own agendas and fail to realize that Baal has his own vision. The nuclear rapture signals the beginning of the Apocalypse, and few understand that this is all part of the Baal divine plan. Baal is forced into a deadly strategy as he attempts to outwit the Templars and Saint Michael in the war against Lucifer. None fully understand his abilities and they soon realize that he is beyond their control. The Templars have one last hope: Lucia, a nun chosen from birth to fall in love with Baal. Will her love be enough to stay his hand from destroying the world and to free humanity from the shadow of Lucifer?

Rich in historical events and colorfully written, this fascinating account of women in the church spans nearly two thousand years of church history. It tells of events and aspirations, determination and disappointment, patience and achievement that mark the history of daughters of the church from the time of Jesus to the present. The authors have endeavored to present an objective story. The very fact that readers may find themselves surprised now and again by the prominent role of women in certain events and movements proves an inequality that historical narrative has often been guilty of. This is a book about women. It is a setting straight off the record -- a restoring of balance to history that has repeatedly played down the significance of the contributions of women to the theology, the witness, the movements, and the growth of the church. An exegetical study of relevant Scripture passages offers stimulating thought for discussion and for serious reevaluation of historical givens. This volume is enriched by pictures, appendixes, bibliography, and indexes. Like many of the women whose stories it tells, this book has a subdued strength that should not be underestimated.

This volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture reflects the dramatic increase in research on the topic of gender over the past thirty years, revealing that even the most familiar subjects take on new significance when viewed through the lens of gender. The wide range of entries explores how people have experienced, understood, and used concepts of womanhood and manhood in all sorts of obvious and subtle ways. The volume features 113 articles, 65 of which are entirely new for this edition. Thematic articles address subjects such as sexuality, respectability, and paternalism and investigate the role of gender in broader subjects, including the civil rights movement, country music, and sports. Topical entries highlight individuals such as Oprah Winfrey, the Grimke sisters, and Dale Earnhardt, as well as historical events such as the capture of Jefferson Davis in a woman's dress, the Supreme Court's decision in Loving v. Virginia, and the Memphis sanitation workers' strike, with its slogan, "I AM A MAN." Bringing together scholarship on gender and the body, sexuality, labor, race, and politics, this volume offers new ways to view big questions in southern history and culture.

Richard Ford returns with four deftly linked Christmas stories narrated by the iconic Frank Bascombe. Now sixty-eight, Frank resides again in the New Jersey suburb of Haddam, and has thrived – seemingly but not utterly – amidst the devastations of Hurricane Sandy. The desolations of Sandy, which left countless lives unmoored, are the perfect backdrop for Ford – and Bascombe. With a flawless comedic sensibility and unblinking intelligence, these stories range over the full complement of universal subjects: ageing, race, loss, faith, marriage, the real estate debacle – the tumult of the world we live in.
