Itasca - Unmoored by the Wind
Folk | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 41:51 min | 102 MB + 5% Recovery
Label: New Images | Tracks: 11 | Rls.date: 28-10-2014

2014 release from Folk guitarist and songwriter Kayla Cohen AKA Itasca. Where 2012's GRACE RIDERS ON THE ROAD reveled in homemade intimacy, UNMOORED BY THE WIND opens to the world, reaching a timeless, near-baroque yearning; each of these 11 tracks burns with a unique vision. At once soft-spoken and virtuosic, Cohen's mesmerizing finger-picking lays gauzy groundwork for vocal work More than ever before, though, Cohen's confident singing is laid bare; vocals ride on top of arrangements, taking their rightful place in the forefront. The effect is arresting, while at the same time staying true to the seductive ghostliness that has come to characterize her sound.

The Cambridge Companion to the Hellenistic World (Cambridge Companions to the Ancient World) (repost)

Glenn R. Bugh, "The Cambridge Companion to the Hellenistic World (Cambridge Companions to the Ancient World)"
English | 2006 | ISBN 0521535700 | PDF | 402 pages | 5,7 MB

This Companion volume offers fifteen original essays on the Hellenistic world and is intended to complement and supplement general histories of the period from Alexander the Great to Kleopatra VII of Egypt. Each chapter treats a different aspect of the Hellenistic world - religion, philosophy, family, economy, material culture, and military campaigns, among other topics. The essays address key questions about this period: To what extent were Alexander's conquests responsible for the creation of this new 'Hellenistic' age? What is the essence of this world and how does it differ from its Classical predecessor? What continuities and discontinuities can be identified? Collectively, the essays provide an in-depth view of a complex world. The volume also provides the most recent bibliography on the topics along with recommendations for further reading.
Daily Lives of Civilians in Wartime Early America: From the Colonial Era to the Civil War.

David S. Heidler, "Daily Lives of Civilians in Wartime Early America: From the Colonial Era to the Civil War".
Publisher: Greenwood | ISBN: 0313335265 | 2007 edition | PDF | 280 Pages | 2,90 MB

While soldiers were off fighting on the fields of war, civilians on the home front fought their own daily struggles, sometimes removed from the violence but often enough from deep within the maelstrom of conflict. Chapters provide readers with an excellent, detailed description of how women, children, slaves, and Native Americans coped with privation and looming threat, and how they often used, or tried to use, periods of turmoil to their own advantage. While it is the soldiers who are often remembered for their strength, honor, and courage, it is the civilians who keep life going during wartime. This volume presents the lives of these brave citizens during the early colonial era, the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Mexican War, and the Civil War.

HH the Dalai Lama - The Art of Happiness at Work

HH the Dalai Lama & Howard C Cutler, «The Art of Happiness at Work»
Audiobook | ISBN-10: 1573222615 | English | Mp3 (92kb/s) | 210 MB

The Art of Happiness at Work is a modern-day Socratic dialogue in which Cutler asks the Dalai Lama about the difficulties and rewards we might encounter in the workplace. The authors explore issues such as work and identity, making money, the Buddhist concept of "right livelihood," and transforming dissatisfaction at work. The discussion appears simple, if not obvious, at first, but upon closer scrutiny, the Dalai Lama's profound wisdom and sensitivity emerges.
