In season four of Darren Star’s hit TV Land series Younger, the editors at Empirical Press are shocked and deeply moved when they read Marriage Vacation, an autobiographical novel by the publisher’s estranged wife, Pauline Turner Brooks. Knowing the book will cause a sensation, they decide they must publish it. Now you can read what the hype is about—including page 58 that had everyone buzzing (...and blushing). Marriage Vacation is for anyone who has ever fantasized about what it would be like to run away from it all. By all appearances, Kate Carmichael has the perfect life: two adorable daughters, a prewar townhouse on the Upper East Side, and a husband who runs one of the most successful publishing companies in New York. But when Kate attends a wedding and reconnects with successful friends from graduate school, she suddenly sees her life in a different light: the career she didn’t pursue, the dreams she’s locked away, the empty veneer of her privilege. When the wedding weekend ends, instead of heading home to her husband and family, Kate gets on a plane and flies halfway around the world. She claims it’s just going to be for a week—two max—just so she can clear her head and reconnect with her lost dreams. But the adventure doesn't go quite as planned. This provocative and gripping novel asks: Is a wife and mother allowed to have a midlife crisis? And, if she does, can she ever be forgiven? PRAISE FOR Marriage Vacation “Marriage Vacation has everything you want an in a novel: fascinating characters, drama, secrets, emotional reckonings, and far-flung adventure. If you love Younger, you’ll love this book. If you’ve never watched an episode of Younger (you should change that), you’ll still love this book. And just wait until you read page 58!” —Darren Star, creator of Sex and The City and Younger “This brilliant romp helps us understand why Liza was so excited to discover the manuscript, how any woman could leave the dreamy Charles, and what exactly Pauline—by way of her fictional alter ego, Kate Carmichael—did on that mysterious Marriage Vacation. Pack this heartfelt, insightful, funny, sexy book when you take a vacation of your own.” —Pamela Redmond Satran, author of Younger

This book covers five key areas which will determine if a marriage has the greatest potential of being rewarding. Marriage is a balance of these factors which will either add or detract from the relationship. The better these areas function together the more rewarding the relationship can be. Although these five areas are typically common to books on marriage, the author seeks to look at the core issues behind each topic. For example, communication is more than just talking. Communication must include being willing to hear your partner rather than just listening to them. The goal is to maintain a positive attitude while understanding that no couple will have a marriage free of problems. With this foundation, the couple can better understand the weakest areas in their marriage and work on improving them.

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: The Thesis The level of protection provided by Chinese labour law compared to German labour law as a stimuli for western investment in the People s Republic of China describes the Chinese Labour Law and traces back the sources of the Chinese Labour Law regulations. In the first section the German Labour Law and some of the most important clauses are explained. In further sections the Chinese Labour Law itself and its coherent development, the main landmarks and the similarities to the German Labour Law, with its Romanist Tradition, are reflected. In particular the situation of the unions and their influence on management polices are named. In further sections, this thesis displays the current situation in the Chinese corporate world and its relation towards the Chinese Labour Law. With the elaboration of three chosen cases, this thesis highlights the enforcement level and the core aspects of Chinese Labour Law that are frequently violated within Chinese joint-ventures and their partners from abroad, either from Asian and Western developed nations. In addition to that, this thesis focuses on the situation in Taiwan and Hong Kong in respect to their Labour Law systems and gives a brief overview about their core aspects and its future perspective and likelihood to keep its sovereignty under the increasing influence of China mainland. One of the main aspects of this thesis is discussed in the sections dealing with the New Chinese Labour Law of 2007 and its upcoming implementation on the 1st of January 2008. Issues concerning the development and core improvements are evaluated and precisely explained. Furthermore, it will be discussed about the ramifications and main changes that are probably to emerge in the near future. This thesis will also shed some light on the reactions of the work force in China and multinationals in general. The fears and hopes that go hand in hand with implementation of the new draft. Last but not least, this thesis will give proposals and suggestion to German and Western companies how to deal with labour law related issues that are planning to enter this viable and fast growing market. Moreover, this dissertation will give an overview about the main aspects in terms of Chinese Labour Law regulations that should be considered in order to establish a successful business in the People s Republic of China.

Award-winning couples therapist Peter Fraenkel argues that most relationship problems can be traced to partners being out of sync on the powerful but mostly hidden dimension of time. Differences in daily rhythms, personal pace, punctuality, time perspective, and priorities about how time is allocated can all lead to couple conflict. Yet the fascinating fact is that these polarizing time differences play a potent role in attracting lovers in the first place. In this trailblazing new book, he draws on his original research to show how a clearer understanding of these forces can improve the health of your relationship and even rescue a failing one.

The legendary Hollywood star blazes a fiery trail in this enthralling portrait of a brilliant actress and the movies her talent elevated to greatness She was magnificent and exasperating in equal measure. Jack Warner called her "an explosive little broad with a sharp left." Humphrey Bogart once remarked, "Unless you're very big she can knock you down." Bette Davis was a force of nature—an idiosyncratic talent who nevertheless defined the words "movie star" for more than half a century and who created an extraordinary body of work filled with unforgettable performances. In Dark Victory, the noted film critic and biographer Ed Sikov paints the most detailed picture ever delivered of this intelligent, opinionated, and unusual woman who was—in the words of a close friend—"one of the major events of the twentieth century." Drawing on new interviews with friends, directors, and admirers, as well as archival research and a fresh look at the films, this stylish, intimate biography reveals Davis's personal as well as professional life in a way that is both revealing and sympathetic. With his wise and well-informed take on the production and accomplishments of such movie milestones as Jezebel, All About Eve, and Now, Voyager, as well as the turbulent life and complicated personality of the actress who made them, Sikov's Dark Victory brings to life the two-time Academy Award–winning actress's unmistakable screen style, and shows the reader how Davis's art was her own dark victory.

One common attribute we all share as humans is the fact that whenever there is an important future event, we always make necessary preparations in anticipation of an outcome from the event. We do this with childbirth, graduation from school, marriage, vacation, and death. But when it comes to the second visit of Jesus Christ leading to the End of the Age, we seem to care less about the need for some serious preparations. Before death, we will all come to a point in life when we subconsciously without notice start to briefly analyze our path; where we came from, where we are, and where we honestly think we are going after death. After this unprecedented brief moment, our next step is largely determined by the analysis obtained from the pause. That you accepted Jesus Christ as the son of God is not enough to save you from hell; you must repent and live by God’s law to enter His Paradise in Heaven. Anybody can believe in Jesus Christ; but not everybody can live for Jesus Christ. God made you for a specific unique supernatural divine purpose beyond your imaginable dreams. This book will guide you, restore you, energize you, and move you to that place where you seriously start to prepare to have your salvation completely sealed through him as you successfully live to please God through Jesus Christ. This book is a sequel to “Face to Face Meetings with Jesus Christ”.
