SHOOT ME, IM ALREADY DEAD (EBOOK)
Fecha Lanzamiento: 04/09/2014
NAVARRO JULIA

Resumen del eBook

The gripping storyof two families whofollow their dreams andstruggle to overcometheir own destiny.Marian Miller, a NGO aid worker, is asked to write a report on the illegal Jewish settlements in Palestinian territory. In order to do so, she wants to listen to the two versions of the story, what leads her to a meeting in Is rael with Ezaquiel Zucker, an old man who, like many others, has a lot to tell and also, a secret to hide... Ezequiel will narrate his story like it were a massive jigsaw puzzle of many complex pieces and Marian will tell him the Arabic version. At the twilight of the 19th century, the Zuckers, banned from their country during the last tsarist period because of their Jewish identity, live horror and injustice in the flesh. They set out for the Promised Land and buy the lands of the Ziads, an Arabic family headed by Ahmed.The two men, Ahmed Ziad and Samuel Zucker, will establish a strong bond, a friendship that can overcome the religious and political differences, and that will be perpetuated throughout generations.With a background of threats, unleashed betrayals, and thirst for vengeance, the lives of the Zuckers and the Ziads weave a story full of stories in a great novel that hides many novels inside; a novel that offers a historical frieze that starts off at the end of the 19th century and culminates in 1948. A mosaic of treachery and revenge, of possible and impossibleloves and of the great adventure that is living and surviving in a land marked by intolerance and outrage. A deep and moving chronicleof a family saga, Shoot, Im already dead is not only Julia Navarros best and most ambitious novel, but it is also,and above all, a novel filled with real people who are responsible for their own destinies, who will follow their dreams and fight for their lives. ...

LO QUE NO EXISTE, 2012

Resumen del eBook

You Can Do It! es el resultado de la observación, durante numerosos años, de los fallos más frecuentes fundamentalmente en el ámbito de la pronunciación- que cometen los españoles cuando hablan en inglés. Su autora, Helena Kurçab, bajo el sello de The English Coach (Jacci), ha dedicado años a la identificación de estos erro res y a la plasmación de trucos para que las personas hispanohablantes adquieran la soltura que necesitan para hablar y pronunciar bien en inglés. El libro incluye un CD con audio grabado por la propia autora.En You Can Do It!, la profesora y coach- ofrece una serie de sencillas reglas que ilustra con frases llamativas y fáciles de recordar. La palabra umbrella (paraguas) es una de las que más se vale la autora para enseñar su método. Casi todas las personas la dicen bien. Sin embargo, cuando utilizan la letra u en otros contextos la pronuncian mal. ¿Por qué? Según la autora, porque nunca han dedicado tiempo a pensar y extrapolar los sonidos de las vocales.Todo estudiante de inglés y así lo plasma y explica la autora en el primer capítulo de su libro (y primer paso de su método)- debe estar animado para conseguir su objetivo y asegurarse de:-Conocerse a sí mismo y ser capaz de verbalizar el auténtico objetivo y motivo por el que quiere aprender inglés.-Creerse y autoconvencerse de que lo puede conseguir.-Conocer lo que realmente va a necesitar para alcanzar el objetivo marcado. Teniendo en cuenta criterios siempre claros y específicos.El segundo capítulo del libro se centra en los trucos para aprender a pronunciar bien. El tercer paso del método se centra en las claves para identificar nuestros errores, asimilarlos y poder subsanarlos.La autoraNacida en Escocia, de padre polaco y madre escocesa, Heléna Kurçab (The English Coach) creció en un hogar en el que el inglés no era la lengua nativa de sus dos padres ni de algunos de sus amigos. Siendo aún una niña su familia se trasladó a vivir a Australia, donde la autora siguió conviviendo con inmigrantes de numerosos países europeos que deseaban aprender el lenguaje de su nuevo país de adopción. Estas vivencias crearon en ella una compresión y empatía innata sobre el modo en el que se aprenden los idiomas, que creció junto a la pasión personal de Heléna Kurçab por el inglés. En el año 2005 la autora decidió cerrar el negocio de consultoría que tenía en Australia y se trasladó a vivir a España (Madrid). Desde ese momento ha centrado su vida profesional en ayudar a todos aquellos que desean llegar al punto más alto de su nivel de inglés, ayudándoles a dar el salto que realmente necesitan para que hablen bien inglés. La gente y su potencial son mi pasión. Así resume Heléna Kurçab su anhelo y particular forma de vida.Incluye enlace descargable audio formato MP3 ... Leer resumen completo

Gregorio del Amo who led an extraordinary life in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. The story of Gregorio Del Amo and his wife and children played out against a panorama of two centuries of history as California passed from Spain to Mexico to independence to the United States.

UNTIL THE LAST BREATH, JOHN PAUL II, THE SAINT WHO CHANGED HISTORY (EBOOK)
Fecha Lanzamiento: 22/10/2013
CARLOS ALBERTO MARMELADA

Resumen del eBook

Few men have had in their hands the privilege of being able to change the course of history, and the few who have, have done it through war, sowing their time with death, destruction and pain their time. John Paul II, however, was a saint who changed history with the force of the love that emanates from a deep and sincere f aith in God. A faith that led him to surrender himself to others until the last breath of his strength.The story begins in the days before his death and in the hand of an entire group of characters (such as: Benedict XVI, cardinals: Dziwisz, Oder, Ruini and others, his childhood friends and those who accompanied him along his ministerial exercise) we will be able to follow the spiritual journey that led John Paul II to become a priest, a bishop, an archbishop, a holy Pope and finally a saint, through the major historic events of our time: the interwar period, World War II, the Cold War, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain, among others.No doubt, that for believers John Paul II is a saint and for those who do not profess the Catholic religion the man who changed modern history, and for both a role model to follow today.In short, this book presents the life of John Paul II, showing us his personality, his feelings and emotions through the eyes of those who where around him, in such a way that they show us how sanctity was forged in the soul of the man who was Karol Wojtyla. ...

THE OLIVE OIL&HONEY COOKBOOK (EBOOK)
MUÑOZ MENDOZA FRANCISCA

Resumen del eBook

This cookbook is the result of a collaborative work carried out by the students from the elementary and the intermediate levels of English from the Language Schoolof Jerez (the land of sherry) and framed within the European Socrates program, which has one specific action named Grundtvig, centered on adult education.From 201 0 to 2012, the EOI Jerez participated as a coordinator in a Grundtvig project called Working languages for European encounters with two other European partners: A Swedish vocational school, Sjöviks Folkhögskola (Avesta, Dalarna) and a primary and secondary school in Turkey, Özel Gebze Egitim Kurumlari (Gebze, Kocaeli ). One of the goals of this project was to promote the regional identity, which we wanted to enhance with the publication of this cookbook.During the academic year 2010-2011, students from the elementary level visited a monument, the Alcázar, famous for the location of an oil mill inside it, very important fruit crop until the mid-nineteenth century in this location. Based on this visit, students contributed with a recipe which has, as one of its main ingredients, olive oil.The following academic year 2011-2012, the visit took place at the Bee and Honey Museum, where the intermediate level students had the chance to learn about the amazing world of bees, beekeeping in history and bee products. This time the ingredient for the recipe was honey.Both recipes had to be written in English, be typical from the area of Jerez and be accompanied by a photo taken by the students themselves after its elaboration.After two years of compilation and correction, this cookbook was brought to light. It contains the most representative dishes (starters, main courses and desserts) of this Andalusian town.The recipes are written in an enjoyable way, simple and easy to understand and to elaborate even by the most inexperienced and beginner chefs, since one of our intentions was to bring closer and show these easy to make dishes to foreign audiences and, at the same time, to improve learning and understanding of the English language among students of English language as a foreign language. ...

He used images, objects and their means of production to draw parallels with cult ural processes. By means of a variety of techniques, but principally through choice of images, repetition, isolation and use of colour, Warhol makes us aware of contemporary materialism, political manipulation, economic exploitation, conspicuous consumption, media hero-worship and the creation of artificially induced needs and aspirations. ...

South is the story of the most important trip undertaken by Sir Ernest Shackleton as told by himself: the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Feeling that the pride of his homeland, Great Britain, was lost as it had not been the first country to reach the Geographic South Pole the Norwegian Roald Amundsen had conquered it in 1911 Shackleton planned an extremely ambitious adventure that had not yet been accomplished: Not only did he intend to reach the South Pole but he also dreamt of crossing the vast white continent, from the Weddell Sea to the Ross Sea, a total distance of more than 1800 miles. At the beginning of World War I in 1914, the expedition left on board the Endurance. However, weather conditions that year were more severe than usual, and his powerful ship was trapped in the implacable pressure of the ice packs. Unable to do anything to save their ship, the brave crew abandoned her and witnessed her destruction in the unbreakable clutches of the immense frozen mass.  From that moment on, Shackleton and his men had to fight against the hostile weather and find a way to be rescued as soon as possible. Shackleton showed his courage and resolution his name is invoked even today as an example of great leadership as he dared undertake dangerous exploits such as navigating furious seas in a 23 feet long boat and walking nonstop for 36 hours through the challenging mountains and glaciers in South Georgia Island.  ...

ERNEST SHACKLETON

Resumen del eBook

Sur es la historia del viaje más importante de Sir Ernest Shackleton, narrada por él mismo: la Expedición Imperial Transantártica. Sintiendo que el orgullo de su patria, Gran Bretaña, estaba perdido al no haber sido el primer país en alcanzar el Polo Sur geográfico el noruego Roald Amundsen lo había conquistado en 1911, Sha ckleton planificó un nuevo viaje con grandes ambiciones. No sólo se proponía llegar al Polo Sur, sino que soñaba con atravesar a pie el vasto continente blanco, desde el mar de Weddell hasta el mar de Ross, una distancia total de 2900 kilómetros.En los albores de la Primera Guerra Mundial, en 1914, zarpó la expedición a bordo del Endurance. Las condiciones climáticas ese año fueron más rigurosas que nunca, y su poderoso barco quedó atrapado en la inconmensurable presión de los packs de hielo. Sin poder hacer nada para salvarlo, los valientes tripulantes debieron abandonarlo y verlo morir aplastado en el abrazo implacable de las grandes masas heladas.Desde ese momento, Shackleton y sus hombres debieron luchar contra el clima hostil y resolver la forma de ser rescatados lo antes posible. Shackleton dio significativas muestras de coraje y de resolución al enfrentarse a hazañas tan peligrosas como la navegación de un mar embravecido con un pequeño bote de siete metros de eslora y a la marcha ininterrumpida de 36 horas a través de las amenazantes montañas y glaciares de la isla Georgia del Sur.Sur no es una simple crónica; este libro es el testimonio de una de las más grandes historias de supervivencia de todos los tiempos. ...
