READING: Shattering the glass ceiling in revealing new things, new innovations, and recreating a world globe, calendars, and the most accurate magnetic compass ever. Most people are unaware of what’s going on around them, but a few will envision or maybe discern what lies ahead. Mankind should eliminate all the negatives and replace them with positive things, in order to save humanity from self-destruction. Mankind has to build a narrow pathway to friendship, love, cooperation around the globe, and cease building obstacles. Honesty is by choice—it is not something that you can purchase in a bookstore. Sacrificing most of my adult life to a higher cause has paid off. It was not for gain, lust, money, power, or control. I can attest that serving humanity and by contributing to society has made life most enjoyable and complete. Trusting in God is unshakeable and solid as a rock. Unbelievers should recognize that animals do not endure excruciating pain in giving birth, only women. So there is a God. Eliminating spirituality from the schools and replacing the human mind with new technology is creating robots in the generations to come, and it will be controlling the minds of the populace. Every human spirit from the time of conception grows and continues to develop in journeying through a cathartic period every step of the way until exhaling the last breath.

READING: Weergaloze, zeer lovend ontvangen roman van Laurent Binet, auteur van HhhH Parijs, 1980. De beroemde filosoof Roland Barthes wordt in het Quartier Latin door een vrachtwagen overreden en overlijdt. Politiecommissaris Bayard krijgt opdracht de zaak te onderzoeken. Hij is er al snel van overtuigd dat Barthes vermoord is: de filosoof heeft een manuscript nagelaten waarin hij beschrijft wat de zevende functie is van taal en meerdere mensen zitten erachteraan. Het onderzoek voert Bayard langs alle grote Franse schrijvers, denkers en politici. Met veel humor en vaart speelt Binet in deze weergaloze roman zijn bekende spel met feit en fictie, tegen de achtergrond van de veelbewogen jaren tachtig, toen intellectueel Parijs nog het centrum van de wereld was. De pers over De zevende functie van taal ‘Een weergaloos misdaadverhaal.’ Elsevier ‘De zevende functie van taal is een spannende taalkundige thriller, een wervelende avonturenroman, een vermakelijke satire en een metaroman ineen, waarin een ragfijn spel wordt gespeeld met waarheid en fictie.’ **** De Standaard ‘Een literaire James Bond en tegelijkertijd een hilarisch portret van de grote Franse intellectuelen uit die tijd.’ NRC Handelsblad

READING: INSIDE THE MOB. INSIDE THE NYPD. THE LAST GREAT MAFIA BOOK OF OUR TIME. The Brotherhoods is the chilling chronicle of the shocking crimes of NYPD detectives Stephen Caracappa and Louis Eppolito, notorious rogue cops found guilty in April 2006 of the ultimate form of police corruption -- shielding their criminal deeds behind their badges while they worked for the mafia. Their crimes include participation in the murders of at least eight men, kidnapping, and the betrayal of an entire generation of New York City detectives, federal agents, and prosecutors. "One of the most spectacular police corruption scandals in the city's history," proclaimed the New York Times in its front-page coverage of the jury's verdict. This gripping, true-life detective story is remarkable for its psychological intrigue, criminal audacity, and paranoid, blood-soaked fury. Written by prize-winning journalist Guy Lawson and William Oldham, the brilliant detective who quietly and relentlessly investigated the rogue cops for seven years, The Brotherhoods provides unparalleled access to the secretive workings of both the NYPD and organized crime -- their hierarchies, rituals, and codes of conduct. Sprawling from Manhattan to Las Vegas to Hollywood, this incredible story features wiseguys, hit men on the lam, snitches, cops on the take, girlfriends who should know better, a crooked accountant, corrupt jewelers, streetwise detectives, flamboyant defense attorneys, ice-cool prosecutors, a distinguished federal judge, and a gallery of other unforgettable characters, many hiding secrets they are afraid to reveal. In yet another turn of events, in June 2006 a federal judge vacated the convictions on statute of limitations grounds, even as he cited overwhelming evidence that Caracappa and Eppolito had committed "heinous and violent crimes." The U.S. Attorney's Office, which had won the convictions, has appealed the ruling. The conviction of the two men by a jury and the judge's reiteration of their guilt underscore the amazing story of The Brotherhoods. Destined to rank with such modern crime classics as Serpico, Donnie Brasco, and Wiseguy, this quintessential American mob tale goes to the hearts of two brotherhoods -- the police and the mafia -- and the two cops who belonged to both.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Van Facebooks COO en een van de tophoogleraren van de universiteit van Pennsylvania, auteurs van respectievelijk Lean In en Originals, beide #1 New York Times-bestsellers: een sterk, inspirerend en praktisch boek over het kweken van veerkracht en doorgaan na de onvermijdelijke tegenslagen in het leven. Sheryl Sandberg was er na de plotselinge dood van haar echtgenoot vast van overtuigd dat echte vreugde voor haar en haar kinderen voortaan verleden tijd zou zijn. ‘Ik bevond me in “de leegte”,’ schrijft ze, ‘een enorme holte die je hart en longen opvult en een rem vormt op je vermogen om te denken of zelfs maar adem te halen.’ Haar vriend Adam Grant, psycholoog aan de Wharton School van de universiteit van Pennsylvania, vertelde haar dat mensen concrete stappen kunnen zetten om zich te herpakken na een schokkende ervaring. We komen niet met een vaste hoeveelheid veerkracht ter wereld. Veerkracht is een spier en ieder mens is in staat deze te trainen. Optie B combineert Sheryls persoonlijke ervaringen met Adams verrassende onderzoek naar overleven in tijden van tegenspoed. Sheryl opent haar hart – en haar dagboek – vanaf het hartverscheurende moment dat zij haar man, Dave Goldberg, in elkaar gezakt in het fitnesscentrum aantreft. Ze beschrijft het acute verdriet en het isolement dat ze na zijn dood ervoer. Optie B gaat echter over meer dan Sheryls verlies: het laat ook zien hoe allerlei verschillende mensen hun persoonlijke leed – zoals ziekte, werkloosheid, aanranding en verkrachting, natuurrampen en oorlogsgeweld – te boven zijn gekomen. Hun verhalen tonen aan dat de menselijke geest het vermogen heeft om door te gaan, en opnieuw vreugde te ontdekken. Veerkracht komt uit ons binnenste, maar we danken die kracht ook aan steun van buitenaf. Wie een diepere zin vindt in zijn bestaan en zich gewaardeerd voelt, is zelfs na de meest verpletterende gebeurtenissen in staat om te groeien. Optie B leert ons hoe we anderen in een crisisperiode kunnen helpen, hoe we mededogen met onszelf kunnen ontwikkelen, hoe we sterke kinderen kunnen opvoeden om een veerkrachtig gezin te vormen, zodat we alles wat er op ons pad komt de baas kunnen. Twee weken na de dood van haar man wilde Sheryl dat haar kind een vader-kindactiviteit zou ondernemen. ‘Ik wil Dave,’ huilde ze. Haar vriend antwoordde: ‘Optie A is niet beschikbaar’, waarop hij haar beloofde te helpen het beste te maken van optie B. Ieder van ons heeft op de een of andere manier wel te maken met een optie B. Dit boek helpt ons er het beste van te maken.

READING: “The Marines’ campaign to secure Anbar Province in Iraq will rank as one of the Corps’ historic battle achievements. Dick Shultz's brilliant account of that campaign is rich in lessons learned and examples of adaptability. The Marines Take Anbar will be a classic study in counter insurgency."" - Gen. Anthony C. Zinni, USMC (Ret.) The U.S. Marine Corps’ four-year campaign against al Qaeda in Anbar is a fight certain to take its place next to such legendary clashes as Belleau Wood, Guadalcanal, Peleliu, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, Chosin, and Khe Sanh. Its success, the author contends, constituted a major turning point in the Iraq War and helped alter the course of events and set the stage for the Surge in Baghdad a year later. This book brings to light all the decisive details of how the Marines, between 2004 and 2008, adapted and improvised as they applied the hard lessons of past mistakes. In March 2004, when part of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Force (I MEF) was deployed to Anbar Province in the heart of the Sunni triangle, the Marines quickly found themselves locked in a bloody test of wills with al Qaeda, and a burgeoning violent insurgency. By the spring of 2006, according to all accounts, enemy violence was skyrocketing, while predictions for any U.S. success were plummeting. But at that same time new counterinsurgency initiatives were put in place when I MEF returned for its second tour in Anbar, and the Marines began to gain control. By September 2008 the fight was over. Richard Shultz, a well-known author and international security studies expert, has thoroughly researched this subject. His book effectively argues the case for the Marines changing the course of the war at Anbar, which is contrary to the conventional wisdom that the Surge was the turning point.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: A “touching and heartfelt” true story about loss, memory, and a remarkable bond between an English teacher and one of her former students (Booklist). One morning, a box was delivered to Elizabeth Stone’s door. It held ten years of personal diaries and a letter that began: Dear Elizabeth, You must be wondering why I left you my diaries in my will. After all, we have not seen each other in over twenty years . . . What followed was an extraordinary year in Elizabeth’s life as she read Vincent’s diaries and began to learn about the high school student she had taught in Brooklyn twenty-five years before. A Boy I Once Knew is the story of the man Vincent had become and one woman’s journey to understanding him more deeply—and along the way, understanding herself. With his diaries, Vincent becomes a constant presence in Elizabeth’s household. She follows his daily life in San Francisco and his travels abroad. She watches him deal with the deaths of friends in the gay community during the AIDS epidemic. She judges him. She gets angry with him. She develops affection and compassion for him. In some ways, she brings him back to life. And in doing so, she becomes the student, and Vincent the teacher. He forces her to examine her life as well as his, challenges her feelings and fears about death—and ultimately, proves to her that relationships between two people can deepen even after one of them is gone. “A meditation on memory and how a story can be a form of immortality.” —Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club
