You know Ruth’s story. Now meet her in person. And prepare to be changed. Walk with Ruth as she travels from Moab to Bethlehem, certain of her calling, yet uncertain of her future. Hold Naomi’s hand and watch love put the pieces of her broken life back together. And hang out with Boaz, their kinsman-redeemer, who blesses both women and honors God, big time. With best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs by your side, you’ll tarry in the corners of their ancient houses, listen to their conversations, and consider every word of every verse until you can say, “I totally get the book of Ruth. And I see what God is trying to teach me through this rags-to-riches redemption story—he has a plan for my life.” Girl, does he ever! Think of it as time travel without gimmicks, gizmos, or a DeLorean: a novel approach to Bible study that leaps from past to present, gleaning timeless truths that speak to the heart.

In my fourth book, In it for the Long Run, one of the most popular chapters with the readers was ‘You can call me Al.’ It was all about my good friend Al Barker, the only person I’ve ever met who brakes with his left foot. Wanting to capitalize on the popularity of using titles of Paul Simon songs, I reviewed his repertoire for an applicable title for this book. Since the book is about my last year on earth before turning 60 years of age, I initially considered ‘Slip Slidin’ Away’ but thought that might project a negative connotation towards getting older. Instead I chose one of Simon’s more popular songs and gave it my own slant as I wanted to do 50 things I’d never done before in the 12 months leading up to becoming a sexagenarian (don’t get the wrong idea--it just means a person between 60 and 69 years of age). On my 60th birthday (December 10, 2014) someone asked me how I felt. I said ‘just like I did when I was 59. Heck, it was only yesterday’ (although my grandson calls it ‘lasterday’ which if you really think about it makes a lot more sense). As for the 50 things I’d never done before. don’t expect anything outrageous (jumping out of an airplane), dangerous (wrestling an alligator) or spectacular (making a dinosaur appear--but if I could my grandson would be SO impressed). Just 50 things pretty much anyone could long as they have the right attitude. And by ‘right attitude’ I mean ‘sometimes you just have to say what the ___.’ Just because I turned 60 doesn’t mean I reached maturity overnight. After all, maturity is for old people.

Women Scientists In Fifties Science Fiction Films

In the 1950s, science was rapidly advancing, and so were scientific opportunities for women. Modern science fiction films reflected these simultaneous social developments. This book proposes that the social ideology of the 1950s, which was partly concerned with gender issues, saturated the B science fiction films of that era and inspired a new appreciation for the role of women in scientific advancements and other social achievements. Drawing on feminist literary and cultural theory, the author argues that the emergence of the modern American science fiction film in 1950 and the situation of post–World War II female scientists together created a film genre. That genre was explicitly amenable to exploring the tension between a woman's place in her home and her place in the work force, particularly in scientific fields. Early chapters provide a general introduction to the science fiction genre and specifically describe 1950s B science fiction films as they resonate with concerns proper to feminist theory. Subsequent chapters offer detailed, historically situated readings of 10 B science fiction films from the 1950s that feature women in science. The cinematic representations of female scientists are compared and contrasted with real female professionals of the time, illuminating the changing gender dynamics reflected in popular film in the 1950s. Films analyzed include Rocketship X-M, It Came from Beneath the Sea, Them!, Tarantula, The Deadly Mantis, Beginning of the End, Kronos, Cat-Women of the Moon, World Without End, and Queen of Outer Space.

Front Stoops In The Fifties

Front Stoops in the Fifties recounts the stories of some of Baltimore's most famous personalities as they grew up during the "decade of conformity." Such familiar names as Jerry Leiber, Nancy Pelosi, Thurgood Marshall, and Barry Levinson figure prominently in Michael Olesker’s gripping account, which draws on personal interviews and journalistic digging. Olesker marks the end of the fifties with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. "It’s as if millions will suddenly decide to act out their anxieties and their rage, as if Kennedy’s murder exposed some hypocrisy at the heart of the American dream," he writes. Focusing on the period leading up to this turning point in U.S. history, Olesker looks to the individuals living through the changes that were just beginning to surface and would later come to prominence in the sixties. The fifties are often remembered with longing as a more innocent time. But it was also a suffocating time for many. Alongside innocence was ignorance. Olesker tells the story of Nancy D’Alesandro Pelosi, daughter of the mayor, who grew up in a political home and eventually became the first woman Speaker of the House. Thurgood Marshall, schooled in a racially segregated classroom, went on to argue Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka before the U.S. Supreme Court and rewrite race-relations law. Even the music changed. Olesker’s doo-wop portrait of Baltimore is nostalgic, but it has a hard edge.

This is a personal memoir of good times in Chicago back in the days when candy bars and White Castles cost a mere 5 cents.

I have completed this manuscript Just Remember This, or as American Pop Singers 1900-1950+, about music before the 1950s in America. It perhaps offers knowledge and insights not previously found in other musical reference books. I have moreover been working on this book very meticulously over the past twelve-plus years. It started as a bit of fun and gradually became serious as I began to listen along with the vocalists of popular music, of the era before 1950, essentially just before the dawn of rock and roll. If you can call it that! Indeed genre and labeling of American music started here, and then from everywhere. While the old adage of always starting from somewhere could be noted in every century, the 1900s had produced the technology. Understanding the necessity, more so, finds a curiosity on the part of a general public hungry for entertainment, despite 6 day work weeks, World War I, the Great Depression, and World War II.

There is a cultural and socioeconomic phenomenon happening with Baby Boomers today. Theyre redefining retirement by transitioning into mid-life careers or finding work that fulfills their hearts, if not their wallets. These 50, 60 and even 70ish people cant really see themselves hanging up the old spurs because theyve still got another 20 or more good years in them. This generation is caught between a cycle where careers have either peaked, their jobs have evaporated, or theyre just ready to do something else. Theres still plenty of energy and drive to do more. This has created a category called the tweener years. Tweeners are somewhere between the end of a long career and the beginning of a new one, or a new avocation. This book discusses how we came to this stage and how career changes are being made at a point when, in previous generations, people were handed their gold watch and then they contemplated old age. The energy is still there for most of us, and so is the drive to create and grow. Were looking for new thrills and a way to fulfill our dreams which usually correspond with our interests and occasionally our financial abilities. As this book reveals, there are many people who have become Tweeners in the last few years, we just dont see them as a group. Many of us have encountered an occasional person weve met at a neighborhood barbeque, or maybe while we were vacationing, or perhaps weve just heard about the stories of these Tweeners from a friend of a friend. We just havent seen them en masse enough to realize that this is a cultural and economic phenomenon occurring around us. Changing careers and lifestyles after several decades of habit and routine is not easy, but it has happened and is happening to millions of people all over the world. Some of the things that provoke change are myriad; loss of a job, health problems, a personal or family crisis. Some are not so obvious like boredom, routine; that insidious sameness that casts a gray gloom on your entire personality and you may not even know its there. You just know you feel like a hamster in a cage walking on one of those wheels that go nowhere.
