In 1941, Rob Coram is six. The war feels far removed from his world of aunties and cousins and the beautiful, dry landscape of Geraldton in Western Australia. But when his favourite, older cousin, Rick, leaves to join the army, the war takes a step closer. When Rick returns from the war several years later, he has changed and Rob feels betrayed. The old merry-go-round that represents Rob's dream of utopia (the security of his family and of the land that is his home) begins to disintegrate before his eyes.

Picture a small, mixed group of people, chosen because of their interest in music, to attend an address by, of all things, an amazing inanimate object which has somehow, rather miraculously, acquired the ability to, not only communicate, but be articulate and glib too!

Even the brightest places have shadows. Stevie is sweet and shy—the only hint of an independent spirit comes from his lilac hair. For years he's harboured a crush on his best friend, Adam, who is everything Stevie isn't. The problem? When it comes to love, Adam is a bit slow on the uptake. On top of that, Stevie fears the escaped killer known as Harlequin is targeting his friends, and clings to his role managing the merry-go-round for some semblance of normality. But someone is watching from shadows even the summer sun can't penetrate. Realising that life can be all too short, Adam takes steps to ensure that Stevie will be his. All his protective instincts kick in when Stevie attracts some unwanted—and very dangerous—attention, but he can't take care of him alone. The group of friends needs to band together because the bright lights and whirling horses of the merry-go-round won't be enough to keep Stevie alive. Some killers are far too good at hiding in plain sight. Reader advisory: This book contains a brief scene of sexual assault.

"A snapshot of the civil-rights movement in one city provides insight into the important role of individual communities as change moved through the country…a case study of how citizens of one city both precipitated and responded to the whirlwind of social change around them."—Kirkus Reviews "A profoundly moving tribute to the intrepid unsung heroes who risked their lives to help bring an end to Baltimore's Jim Crow Era."—Kam Williams, syndicated columnist On August 28, 1963—the day of Martin Luther King Jr.'s famous "I Have a Dream" speech—segregation ended finally at Baltimore's Gwynn Oak Amusement Park, after nearly a decade of bitter protests. Eleven-month-old Sharon Langley was the first African American child to go on a ride there that day, taking a spin on the park's merry-go-round, which since 1981 has been located on the National Mall in front of the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. Round and Round Together weaves the story of the struggle to integrate that Baltimore amusement park into the story of the civil rights movement as a whole. Round and Round Together is illustrated with archival photos from newspapers and other sources, as well as personal photos from family albums of individuals interviewed for the book. There is a timeline of major Civil Rights events. "Amy Nathan's book deftly describes the courageous struggle by blacks and whites to end discrimination in the park, the city, and the nation. Readers will walk away with a clearer understanding of segregation and the valiant Americans who fought against this injustice."—Debra Newman Ham, Professor of History, Morgan State University "Round and Round Together tells the inspiring story of how a generation of college and high school students provided the energy and enthusiasm that ended racial segregation in Baltimore's Gwynn Oak Amusement Park and changed the direction of Maryland's history."—James Henretta, Professor Emeritus, University of Maryland "With clarity and passion, Amy Nathan portrays the struggle of everyday citizens to end racial segregation in Baltimore. This compelling history, for and about young people, is simple but profound like freedom itself."—Taylor Branch, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of the trilogy America in the King Years

When he is diagnosed with cancer, in the silence of the hospital room broken only by the swish of cars outside, Italian writer Tiziano Terzani realizes that his whole life has been one long ride on a merry-go-round where he has always journeyed without a ticket. Now, for the first time, the ticket collector has come to demand his dues. At first, Terzani turns to Western medicine for a cure, but a question soon begins to haunt him: is cancer, as the doctors say, an enemy that needs to be destroyed, or is it a friend one can talk to? Travelling had always been a way of life for him, so he decides to make another trip, in search of a solution - to India. This final ride turns out to be very different though. And more difficult. Because every step, every choice - often between reason and faith, between science and magic - is inextricably linked to his own survival. As he crisscrosses the country from an ashram in Coimbatore to a hut in Almora, the external journey in search of a cure transforms into an inner journey and a return to the divine roots of man. Then, one day, as he looks at the sun rising over the mountains, he stumbles upon the one truth that has eluded him: death is as desirable and eternal as life itself. A bestseller in Europe, this is a book about modern medicine and alternative cures, and the quest to understand the true meaning of mortality.

The Merry-Go-Round Principle is filled with good solid values that teach children the importance of kindness, goodness, patience, and honesty. It teaches children the dangers of selfishness, unkindness, and insincerity and that when they do bad, they are only hurting themselves. It also teaches that when a person is good to someone else, they immediately reap a reward that will eventually come back to them in the form of the goodness they gave to another. Because our society has been compromised with many shades of gray, this book is a must-have if you want a resource that helps to reinforce rock-solid values that are rooted in truth and goodness to your children in a practical and fun way. The book tells the story of twelve different children who have varying personality traits, and these personality traits both help and harm the children depending on how they exercise these traits. First, you will be introduced to Sassy Sally, who has a really sassy mouth. She doesnt mean to be disrespectful when she speaks, but oftentimes she is. Sally learns the Merry-Go-Round Principle the hard waythat the sassy things you say to others will eventually work their way back around to you. Next, you will meet Grateful Gladys. She is a grateful giver. Gladys learns through experience that giving is good because when you give, it creates space in your own life to receive more good. Greedy Greg is the next character introduced to the reader. Greg is always seeking to get more than what he has. Hes a natural competitor, but he uses his competitive nature in not-so-good ways. Other characters you will meet through your reading include Polite Polly, Selfish Fred, Sincere Sam, Sneaky Pete, Mean Mike, Helpful Hannah, Hopeful Hope, Truthful Tray, and Shy Samantha. They are all beautiful children who are growing and developing in life, but they need positive parenting in order to prevent negative habits and patterns from forming in their early lives.

People live at least two lives; the one in front of the family and the one outside of that. Now I can say that my more dominant personality is the only life. As a professional, it makes me feel good to know that people look upon me as someone competent, and possessing leadership qualities. Earning the Bachelors and Masters degrees have provided a different level of confidence; however, my development is attributed to a major portion of life in which I call the human services era or the stripping and male prostitution era. For the past 6 years, teaching and training have been at the forefront. Why tell this story now? Am I worried about what people think? People always compliment the man that I am, so it is necessary to know that mistakes made me into this man. There is not a day that goes by that my thoughts don't rewind to the days of easy money, and frequent sexual encounters. Every time I open a check or check my bank account, my mind takes me to a place where there was no working 8 hours a day to earn minimal money or money being taken from the check to pay taxes. Going back is not an option because of a life fulfilled now. I touch people now, but differently: with my words.

Example in this ebook CHAPTER I All her life Miss Elizabeth Dwarris had been a sore trial to her relations. A woman of means, she ruled tyrannously over a large number of impecunious cousins, using her bank-balance like the scorpions of Rehoboam to chastise them, and, like many another pious creature, for their soul’s good making all and sundry excessively miserable. Nurtured in the evangelical ways current in her youth, she insisted that her connections should seek salvation according to her own lights; and, with harsh tongue and with bitter gibe, made it her constant business to persuade them of their extreme unworthiness. She arranged lives as she thought fit, and ventured not only to order the costume and habits, but even the inner thought of those about her: the Last Judgment could have no terrors for any that had faced her searching examination. She invited to stay with her in succession various poor ladies who presumed on a distant tie to call her Aunt Eliza, and they accepted her summons, more imperious than a royal command, with gratitude by no means unmixed with fear, bearing the servitude meekly as a cross which in the future would meet due testamentary reward. Miss Dwarris loved to feel her power. During these long visits—for, in a way, the old lady was very hospitable—she made it her especial object to break the spirit of her guests; and it entertained her hugely to see the mildness with which were borne her extravagant demands, the humility with which every inclination was crushed. She took a malicious pleasure in publicly affronting persons, ostensibly to bend a sinful pride, or in obliging them to do things which they particularly disliked. With a singular quickness for discovering the points on which they were most sensitive, she attacked every weakness with blind invective till the sufferer writhed before her, raw and bleeding: no defect, physical or mental, was protected from her raillery, and she could pardon as little an excess of avoirdupois as a want of memory. Yet, with all her heart, she despised her victims, she flung in their face insolently their mercenary spirit, vowing that she would never leave a penny to such a pack of weak fools; it delighted her to ask for advice in the distribution of her property among charitable societies, and she heard, with unconcealed hilarity, their unwilling and confused suggestions. With one of her relations only, Miss Dwarris found it needful to observe a certain restraint, for Miss Ley, perhaps the most distant of her cousins, was as plain-spoken as herself, and had, besides, a far keener wit whereby she could turn rash statements to the utter ridicule of the speaker. Nor did Miss Dwarris precisely dislike this independent spirit; she looked upon her in fact with a certain degree of affection and not a little fear. Miss Ley, seldom lacking a repartee, appeared really to enjoy the verbal contests, from which, by her greater urbanity, readiness, and knowledge, she usually emerged victorious: it confounded, but at the same time almost amused, the elder lady that a woman so much poorer than herself, with no smaller claims than others to the coveted inheritance, should venture not only to be facetious at her expense, but even to carry war into her very camp. Miss Ley, really not grieved to find some one to whom without prickings of conscience she could speak her whole mind, took a grim pleasure in pointing out to her cousin the poor logic of her observations or the foolish unreason of her acts. No cherished opinion of Miss Dwarris was safe from satire—even her evangelicism was laughed at, and the rich old woman, unused to argument, was easily driven into self-contradiction; and then—for the victor took no pains to conceal her triumph—she grew pale and speechless with rage.

The Merry-Go-Round of Sexual Abuse is a valuable guide to identifying, treating, and breaking the cycle of sexual abuse. Based on 30 years of professional experience in treating offenders and survivors of sexual assault and sexual molestation, Dr. Prendergast provides step-by-step guidelines and specialized treatment techniques most effective in producing change in this group of clients. Each technique is illustrated with pertinent case studies. This is a much-needed guide for professionals who often lack specific training in the identification and treatment of both offenders and survivors of sexual abuse. Prendergast identifies the survivors of sexual abuse, explores the “why sex” inquiry and discusses the characteristics of the abuser. Each topic is treated by first presenting a fact or principle which is then illustrated with a case study that exhibits the principle in practice. A broad range of topics essential to the treatment of offenders and survivors of sexual abuse are clearly explained in this book including: 18 factors to consider when working with survivors of sexual abuse behavioral effects of unresolved but consciously remembered sexual abuse and unidentified sexual trauma specialized interviewing techniques for survivors of sexual abuse specific treatment techniques for 4 different categories of sexual abuse--homosexual abuse (both seductive and assaultive), assaultive sexual abuse, incest, and long-term seductive sexual child abuse “self-confrontation” as a new therapy approach for survivors aftercare continuation and consistency therapist qualifications and cautions This book is an in-depth exploration of the topic, usually only touched on in college courses and graduate programs. It features treatment techniques that are not taught in schools or universities. Psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and counselors who are untrained in working with this specific group will benefit from these insightful discussions and specific case studies. The Merry-Go-Round of Sexual Abuse can easily be used as a complete training manual for practicing therapists as well as interns, trainees, and graduate students in the field of sexual abuse. In addition, police investigators, parents of either victims or abusers, significant others of survivors, survivors themselves, and the public in general will benefit from the understanding Prendergast offers on the problem of sexual abuse.
