Web of Life: Folklore and Midrash in Rabbinic Literature (Contraversions: Jews and Other Differences) by Batya Stein
Web of Life weaves its suggestive interpretation of Jewish culture in the Palestine of late antiquity on the warp of a singular, breathtakingly tragic, and sublime rabbinic text, Lamentations Rabbah. The textual analyses that form the core of the book are informed by a range of theoretical paradigms rarely brought to bear on rabbinic literature: structural analysis of mythologies and folktales, performative approaches to textual production, feminist theory, psychoanalytical analysis of culture, cultural criticism, and folk narrative genre analysis.

The concept of context as the hermeneutic basis for literary interpretation reactivates the written text and subverts the hierarchical structures with which it has been traditionally identified. This book reinterprets rabbinic culture as an arena of multiple dialogues that traverse traditional concepts of identity regarding gender, nation, religion, and territory. The author's approach is permeated by the idea that scholarly writing about ancient texts is invigorated by an existential hermeneutic rooted in the universality of human experience. She thus resorts to personal experience as an idiom of communication between author and reader and between human beings of our time and of the past. This research acknowledges the overlap of poetic and analytical language as well as the language of analysis and everyday life.

In eliciting folk narrative discourses inside the rabbinic text, the book challenges traditional views about the social basis that engendered these texts. It suggests the subversive potential of the constitutive texts of Jewish culture from late antiquity to the present by pointing out the inherent multi-vocality of the text, adding to the conventionally acknowledged synagogue and academy the home, the marketplace, and other private and public socializing institutions.

Email Marketing Madness!: How To Compel Your Subscribers to Open Your Emails And Take Action Now by Dan Lok

The results from every email mini-course, every email newsletter, every autoresponder message, every solo mailing I.E. Any email you send are completely at the mercy of that singular set of two options.

Email Marketing Madness!: How To Compel Your Subscribers to Open Your Emails And Take Action Now
Opened or not opened.

If your mailing is not opened by your subscriber, then you have absolutely zero chance of getting that subscriber to respond to whatever is inside. Ouch.

If your mailing is opened, then it's up to the message inside to get the subscriber to respond as you desire and take action. (Hint: This is the better of the two options :-)

Your success or failure as a email marketer is dependent firstly upon getting your subscribers to open your emails.

The magic ratio for email marketing is simple

"The number of subscribers who RESPOND to your mailings is directly proportional to the number of subscribers who READ your mailings."

It's a numbers game.

* If you have 1,000 subscribers and 5% open your email (50 subs) and 10% of those actually take action (5 subs), you have a total of 5 responses / 1,000 subscribers.

* If you have 1,000 subscribers and 10% open your email (100 subs) and the response rate (10%) stays the same, then you'll have 10 responses / 1,000 subscribers.

The more people who OPEN your emails, the more people who RESPOND to your emails.

Of course, getting your subscribers to open your emails can, in itself, be a bit of a tricky proposition these days.

You don't have to look very hard to realize that email results aren't what they used to be.

The good news is I have put together a list of the top 40 subject line archetypes you can "swipe and deploy" to make your opening rates soar.

All you have to do is fill in the blanks, and out pops a subject line that is guaranteed to compel your subscribers to open your emails and take immediate action!

Elliptic Mixed, Transmission and Singular Crack Problems

FREEDownload : Elliptic Mixed, Transmission and Singular Crack Problems

Elliptic Mixed, Transmission and Singular Crack Problems By Gohar Harutyunyan, B.-Wolfgang Schulze
2007 | 777 Pages | ISBN: 303719040X | PDF | 6 MB

Elliptic Mixed, Transmission and Singular Crack Problems
Mixed, transmission, or crack problems belong to the analysis of boundary value problems on manifolds with singularities. The Zaremba problem with a jump between Dirichlet and Neumann conditions along an interface on the boundary is a classical example. The central theme of this book is to study mixed problems in standard Sobolev spaces as well as in weighted edge spaces where the interfaces are interpreted as edges. Parametrices and regularity of solutions are obtained within a systematic calculus of boundary value problems on manifolds with conical or edge singularities. This calculus allows singularities on the interface and homotopies between mixed and crack problems. Additional edge conditions are computed in terms of relative index results. In a detailed final chapter, the intuitive ideas of the approach are illustrated, and there is a discussion of future challenges. A special feature of the text is the inclusion of many worked-out examples which help the reader to appreciate the scope of the theory and to treat new cases of practical interest. This book is addressed to mathematicians and physicists interested in models with singularities, associated boundary value problems, and their solvability strategies based on pseudo-differential operators. The material is also useful for students in higher semesters and young researchers, as well as for experienced specialists working in analysis on manifolds with geometric singularities, the applications of index theory and spectral theory, operator algebras with symbolic structures, quantisation, and asymptotic analysis.

Like a Bomb Going Off: Leonid Yakobson and Ballet as Resistance in Soviet Russia

Like a Bomb Going Off: Leonid Yakobson and Ballet as Resistance in Soviet Russia by Ms. Lynn Garafola
English | Jan 13, 2015 | ISBN: 0300207638 | 536 Pages | EPUB/MOBI/AZW/PDF (Converted) | 15 MB
Everyone has heard of George Balanchine. Few outside Russia know of Leonid Yakobson, Balanchine's contemporary, who remained in Lenin's Russia and survived censorship during the darkest days of Stalin.

Like a Bomb Going Off: Leonid Yakobson and Ballet as Resistance in Soviet Russia
Like Shostakovich, Yakobson suffered for his art and yet managed to create a singular body of revolutionary dances that spoke to the Soviet condition. His work was often considered so culturally explosive that it was described as "like a bomb going off."

Based on untapped archival collections of photographs, films, and writings about Yakobson's work in Moscow and St. Petersburg for the Bolshoi and Kirov ballets, as well as interviews with former dancers, family, and audience members, this illuminating and beautifully written biography brings to life a hidden history of artistic resistance in the USSR through this brave artist, who struggled against officially sanctioned anti-Semitism while offering a vista of hope.

Roads to Utopia: The Walking Stories of the Zohar

Roads to Utopia: The Walking Stories of the Zohar by David Greenstein
2014 | ISBN: 0804788332 | English | 328 pages | PDF | 3 MB

Roads to Utopia: The Walking Stories of the Zohar
As the greatest book of Jewish mysticism, the Zohar is a revered and much-studied work. Yet, surprisingly, scholarship on the Zohar has yet to pay attention to its most unique literary device-the presentation of its insights while its teachers walk on the road. In these pages, rabbi and scholar David Greenstein offers the first examination of the "walking on the road" motif.

Greenstein's original approach hones in on how this motif expresses the struggles with spatiality and the everyday presented in the Zohar. He argues that the walking theme is not a metaphor for realms to be collapsed into or transcended by the holy, as conventional interpretations would have it. Rather, it conveys us into those quotidian spaces that are obdurately present alongside the realm of the sacred. By embracing the reality of mundane existence, and recognizing the prosaic dimensions of the worldly path, the Zohar is an especially exceptional mystical treatise. In this volume, Greenstein makes visible a singular, though previously unstudied, achievement of the Zohar.

Discrete Inverse and State Estimation Problems: With Geophysical Fluid Applications
English | Geophysics | 29. June 2006 | ISBN-10: 0521854245 | 384 pages | Pdf | 6 mb
The problems of making inferences about the natural world from noisy observations and imperfect theories occur in almost all scientific disciplines. This 2006 book addresses these problems using examples taken from geophysical fluid dynamics.

Discrete Inverse and State Estimation Problems: With Geophysical Fluid Applications
It focuses on discrete formulations, both static and time-varying, known variously as inverse, state estimation or data assimilation problems. Starting with fundamental algebraic and statistical ideas, the book guides the reader through a range of inference tools including the singular value decomposition, Gauss-Markov and minimum variance estimates, Kalman filters and related smoothers, and adjoint (Lagrange multiplier) methods. The final chapters discuss a variety of practical applications to geophysical flow problems. Discrete Inverse and State Estimation Problems is an ideal introduction to the topic for graduate students and researchers in oceanography, meteorology, climate dynamics, and geophysical fluid dynamics. It is also accessible to a wider scientific audience; the only prerequisite is an understanding of linear algebra.

I’ll Be Here in the Morning: The Songwriting Legacy of Townes Van Zandt

FREEDownload : I’ll Be Here in the Morning: The Songwriting Legacy of Townes Van Zandt

I'll Be Here in the Morning: The Songwriting Legacy of Townes Van Zandt (John and Robin Dickson Series in Texas Music, sponsored by the Center for Texas) by Cowboy" Jack Clements
English | Nov 28, 2011 | ISBN: 1603445269 | 272 Pages | PDF | 126 MB

I’ll Be Here in the Morning: The Songwriting Legacy of Townes Van Zandt
In this tightly woven, intelligently written book, Brian T. Atkinson interviews both well-known musicians and up-and-coming artists to reveal, in the performers' own words, how their creative careers have been shaped by the life and work of Townes Van Zandt. Kris Kristofferson, Guy Clark, Billy Joe Shaver, Rodney Crowell, Lucinda Williams, and Lyle Lovett are just a few of the established musicians who share their impressions of the breathtakingly beautiful tunes and lyrics he created, along with their humorous, poignant, painful, and indelible memories of witnessing Van Zandt's rise and fall.

Atkinson balances the reminiscences of seasoned veterans with the observations of relative newcomers to the international music scene, such as Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Josh Ritter, and Scott Avett (the Avett Brothers), presenting a nuanced view of Van Zandt's singular body of work, his reckless lifestyle, and his long-lasting influence. Forewords by "Cowboy" Jack Clement and longtime Van Zandt manager and friend Harold F. Eggers Jr. open the book, and each chapter begins with an introduction in which Atkinson provides context and background, linking each interviewee to Van Zandt's legacy.

The Idea of Hegel’s Science of Logic

The Idea of Hegel's Science of Logic By Stanley Rosen
2013 | 518 Pages | ISBN: 022606588X | PDF | 1 MB

The Idea of Hegel’s Science of Logic
Although Hegel considered Science of Logic essential to his philosophy, it has received scant commentary compared with the other three books he published in his lifetime. Here philosopher Stanley Rosen rescues the Science of Logic from obscurity, arguing that its neglect is responsible for contemporary philosophy's fracture into many different and opposed schools of thought. Through deep and careful analysis, Rosen sheds new light on the precise problems that animate Hegel's overlooked book and their tremendous significance to philosophical conceptions of logic and reason. Rosen's overarching question is how, if at all, rationalism can overcome the split between monism and dualism. Monism – which claims a singular essence for all things – ultimately leads to nihilism, while dualism, which claims multiple, irreducible essences, leads to what Rosen calls "the endless chatter of the history of philosophy." The Science of Logic, he argues, is the fundamental text to offer a new conception of rationalism that might overcome this philosophical split. Leading readers through Hegel's book from beginning to end, Rosen's argument culminates in a masterful chapter on the Idea in Hegel. By fully appreciating the Science of Logic and situating it properly within Hegel's oeuvre, Rosen in turn provides new tools for wrangling with the conceptual puzzles that have brought so many other philosophers to disaster.
