Fashion, Style and Elegance in Women Over 60Patrizia Molechino, Alessia Barucchi & Anina Net
Fashion, Style, and Elegance in Women Over 60 by Patrizia Molechino The Oracle on Buying This is a book about women over 60. Its purpose is to help women to maintain or achieve fashion sense and personal style by taking inspiration from the subjects depicted throughout, women reflecting a self-assured elegance with a total awareness of their age. The issue of age has always been a major concern for women in a world which has clearly always favored permanent youth as the ultimate, unreachable goal, and in particular when youth has passed away...clearly a male diktat, for women are bound to age as much as men themselves are. So, in a way, this book is also, if not above all, a statement on how women who are no longer young should pride themselves of their positive, elegant image and take a stand against the prevailing trends of youth forever at any price...namely, old can be and IS, as beautiful as young (just a little bit older).

Rise of the Monkey KingJeff Pepper & Xiao Hui Wang
"The Rise of the Monkey King" is the first book in the "Journey to the West" series of stories by Jeff Pepper and Xiao Hui Wang. We learn how the little stone monkey is born, becomes king of his troop of monkeys, leaves his home to pursue enlightenment, receives the name Sun Wukong (literally, "ape seeking the void") from his teacher, and returns home to defend his subjects from a ravenous monster. Sun Wukong, the Handsome Monkey King, is one of most famous characters in Chinese literature and culture. His legendary bravery, his foolish mistakes, his sharp-tongued commentary and his yearning for immortality and spiritual knowledge have inspired hundreds of books, television shows, graphic novels, video games and films. This book is based on Journey to The West (西游记, xī yóu jì), an epic novel written in the 16th Century by Wu Chen'en. The novel is loosely based on an actual journey by the Buddhist monk Tangseng (called Xuanzang and Sanzang in earlier books), who traveled from the Chinese city of Chang'an westward to India in 629 A.D. and returned 17 years later with priceless knowledge and texts of Buddhism. Over the course of the book the band of travelers face the 81 tribulations that Tangseng had to endure to attain Buddhahood. All of the stories in this series are all written in simple language suitable for intermediate Chinese learners. Our core vocabulary is the 600 words of HSK-3. All these words are in the glossary at the back of the book. Whenever we introduce a new word or phrase, it's defined in a footnote on the page where it first appears, and it also appears in the glossary. In the main body of the book, each page of Chinese characters is matched with a facing page of pinyin. This is unusual for Chinese novels but we feel it's important. By including the pinyin, as well as a full English version and glossary at the end, we hope that every reader, no matter what level of mastery they have of the Chinese language, will be able to understand and enjoy the story we tell here. Audio versions of all books in this series are available on YouTube, on the Imagin8 Press channel.

Campbell read studies that helped him make the connection between protein consumption, the carcinogen aflatoxin, and liver cancer. Plant proteins were significantly less correlated to liver cancer growth after aflatoxin exposure… This companion to The China Study includes: • Overview of the book • Important People • Key Takeaways • Analysis of Key Takeaways • and much more!

Books can guide what we do and our lives. Many of us love books while reading them and maybe they will echo with us a few weeks after but 2 years later we can’t remember if we have read it or not. And that’s a shame. We remember that at that time, the book meant a lot to us. Why is it that 2 years later we have forgotten everything? That’s not good. This summary is taken from the most important themes of the original book. Most people don’t like books. People just want to know what the book says they have to do. If you trust the source you don’t need the arguments. So much of a book is arguing its points, but often you don’t need the argument if you trust the source you can just get the point. This summary takes the effort to distill the blahs into themes for the people who are just not going to read the whole book. All this information is in the original book.

Cynical Theories: How Activist Scholarship Made Everything about Race, Gender, and Identity-and Why This Harms Everybody by Helen Pluckrose & James Lindsay Cynical Theories: How Activist Scholarship Made Everything about Race, Gender, and Identity―and Why This Harms Everybody by Helen Pluckrose and James Lindsay is a nonfiction book that deconstructs Critical Theory and challenges the objectives of Social Justice Theory. It examines today’s “woke” mentality and how it has developed a culture that retracts rather than benefits society. Pluckrose and Lindsay explore the genesis of several critical identity theories, explain their evolution, and present them as the root of today’s most pressing arguments in social justice. From French postmodernism to its expansion within activist academic fields, Cynical Theories enlightens its readers on how this all led to modern phenomena like “cultural appropriation” and “cancel culture.” The notion that science is sexist and language is dangerous are proliferated in streets and institutions. Social media brims with posts promoting obesity as “healthy,” and antiracist movements claim that only Whites can be racist. Pluckrose and Lindsay breakdown all these theories into several components. They deliver a strong argument as to why activist scholarship does more harm than good, even to the marginalized communities it’s supposed to defend. Cynical Theories is a USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly Bestseller. It received a 4.4-star rating in Goodreads and praises from human rights activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali and The End of Gender author Debra Soh.
