This was a great idea. All cookbooks should be comic books. Now if only this thing would lay flat so I didn't have to keep propping it open! I love Korean BBW. I think you mean BBQ.
Yeah, well, that too. I also love knowing what all the cool kids are talking about when they call each other "bae" nowadays. Huh? What do you mean? "Bae" is Korean for Asian pear. The more you know. I dig Kimchi and these kimchi recipes are Asian pears. That didn't sound right. Are we sure kids these days aren't just dumb?
An old evil has awakened. A chance encounter by a group of unlikely friends could be the only chance of salvation. Classic fantasy adventure in the style of Robert Jordan and J.R.R. Tolkien..
A group of unlikely friends get much more than they bargain for while on what they believed would be an uneventful journey. "Son, if you are capable of great deeds, then for greatness you must strive; for where would we be if such men sat idle?" - Olam O'lamb. War made Moyathair. For centuries it is all its people had known.
Wars of greed and power, never of justice or freedom.
The North fought for the mines, the Islands fought for trade, and the South for gold.
Only the Dragons fought for honour - and then not all of them. But for all the threat of war, a generation of peace had come to Moyathair. As fragile as it was, the farmers returned to their fields, the cities healed their wounds, and the common folk looked to a brighter future. But nobody was 'really' watching. An old evil had returned, moving silently while the cities slept. The Kel'madden were stronger than ever, strong and vengeful, eager to right on old defeat at the hands of the Surabhan..
Only a chance encounter by a group of unlikely friends could warn Moyathair of things to come - if they can stay alive long enough to tell anybody. A wise man, his 'giant' companion, two old soldiers and three mismatched teenagers, are Moyathair's only hope for peace.
Can they unravel the mystery of the Kel! And if so, reach help in time to make a difference?
A landmark in the conversation about race and religion in America. "They put him to death by hanging him on a tree." Acts 10:39 The cross and the lynching tree are the two most emotionally charged symbols in the history of the African American community. In this powerful new work, theologian James H. Cone explores these symbols and their interconnection in the history and souls of black folk. Both the cross and the lynching tree represent the worst in human beings and at the same time a thirst for life that refuses to let the worst determine our final meaning. While the lynching tree symbolized white power and black death, the cross symbolizes divine power and black life, God overcoming the power of sin and death. For African Americans, the image of Jesus, hung on a tree to die, powerfully grounded their faith that God was with them, even in the suffering of the lynching era. In a work that spans social history, theology, and cultural studies, Cone explores the message of the spirituals and the power of the blues; the passion and the engaged vision of Martin Luther King, Jr.; he invokes the spirits of Billie Holiday and Langston Hughes, Fannie Lou Hamer and Ida B. Wells, and the witness of black artists, writers, preachers, and fighters for justice.
And he remembers the victims, especially the 5,000 who perished during the lynching period. Through their witness he contemplates the greatest challenge of any Christian theology to explain how life can be made meaningful in the face of death and injustice.

In this profound and profoundly controversial work, a landmark of 20th-century thought originally published in 1971, B. F. Skinner makes his definitive statement about humankind and society. Insisting that the problems of the world today can be solved only by dealing much more effectively with human behavior, Skinner argues that our traditional concepts of freedom and dignity must be sharply revised. They have played an important historical role in our struggle against many kinds of tyranny, he acknowledges, but they are now responsible for the futile defense of a presumed free and autonomous individual; they are perpetuating our use of punishment and blocking the development of more effective cultural practices.
Basing his arguments on the massive results of the experimental analysis of behavior he pioneered, Skinner rejects traditional explanations of behavior in terms of states of mind, feelings, and other mental attributes in favor of explanations to be sought in the interaction between genetic endowment and personal history. He argues that instead of promoting freedom and dignity as personal attributes, we should direct our attention to the physical and social environments in which people live. It is the environment rather than humankind itself that must be changed if the traditional goals of the struggle for freedom and dignity are to be reached. Beyond Freedom and Dignity urges us to reexamine the ideals we have taken for granted and to consider the possibility of a radically behaviorist approach to human problems--one that has appeared to some incompatible with those ideals, but which envisions the building of a world in which humankind can attain its greatest possible achievements.
