Through palmistry we learn how to time major life events. When it is best to act, and when to wait ... when to plant crops in our lives, and when to leave the fields fallow. Palmistry shows you who you are and what your purpose is here on earth ... and how best to achieve that purpose. T Stokes, holistic palmist in the United Kingdom, has compiled 50 of his case histories that have been published in magazines from all over the world, in several languages, over the past half-century. Among the case histories chosen are the palm readings of several well known celebrities, including Princess Diana, Margaret Thatcher, Hugo Chavez, Robin Williams, the Dalai Lama, Peter O'Toole, Ravi Shankar and Michael Jackson ... just to mention a few. Palmistry is the ideal base tool for any counseling CBT, Acupuncture, Homeopathy and German New Medicine - in fact, all types of "people"-centered medicine. The present trends of Reductionism (where a person is seen as a Colon or a Liver) is passing ... and returning at last to Whole Person Medicine. Philosophy, Metaphysics, Psychic Anatomy, Alternative Medicine, Psychology with Psychiatry, Spirituality, Diet and just plain GOOD ADVICE are all to be found in this book, as well as how to tell and avoid fakes and scammers. As spiritual leader Krishnamurti said, "The whole world is in your hands." As you learn and begin to read for others, remember the Healer's Motto: "Do No Harm." Shakespeare put it best when he said: "Love all, trust very few, do wrong to none."

Sheriff Pat Garrett and Deputy Leigh McCracken think finding a child's bones stuffed into one of Alma's precious dolls is bad enough, but then all billy hell breaks loose in Croysant. They'd had very little sheriffing to do in this quiet little town since the Biedermann case, but suddenly, they find themselves running around like chickens with their heads cut off, dealing with fires, more skeletons, and mobs of PETA people protesting a chicken factory farm that no one seems able to locate. Worse yet, Jenny Threewinds might be up to no good. Garrett has never been able to admit to himself that he loves her, and now she seems to have taken up with a handsome stranger. Garrett thinks this is just one more example of his bad luck with women until he learns that Jenny is searching frantically for a mysterious lost doll. This is the sequel to Karen Gallob's popular cozy mystery, All the Bad Stuff Comes in Threes.
The Sciences of Homosexuality in Early Modern Europe investigates early modern scientific accounts of same-sex desires and the shapes they assumed in everyday life. It explores the significance of those representations and interpretations from around 1450 to 1750, long before the term homosexuality was coined and accrued its current range of cultural meanings. This collection establishes that efforts to produce scientific explanations for same-sex desires and sexual behaviours are not a modern invention, but have long been characteristic of European thought. The sciences of antiquity had posited various types of same-sexual affinities rooted in singular natures. These concepts were renewed, elaborated, and reassessed from the late medieval scientific revival to the early Enlightenment. The deviance of such persons seemed outwardly inscribed upon their bodies, documented in treatises and case studies. It was attributed to diverse inborn causes such as distinctive anatomies or physiologies, and embryological, astrological, or temperamental factors. This original book freshly illuminates many of the questions that are current today about the nature of homosexual activity and reveals how the early modern period and its scientific interpretations of same-sex relationships are fundamental to understanding the conceptual development of contemporary sexuality.
The hands of colonized subjects - South Asian craftsmen, Egyptian mummies, harem women, and Congolese children - were at the crux of Victorian discussions of the body that tried to come to terms with the limits of racial identification. While religious, scientific, and literary discourses privileged hands as sites of physiognomic information, none of these found plausible explanations for what these body parts could convey about ethnicity. As compensation for this absence, which might betray the fact that race was not actually inscribed on the body, fin-de-siècle narratives sought to generate models for how non-white hands might offer crucial means of identifying and theorizing racial identity. They removed hands from a holistic corporeal context and allowed them to circulate independently from the body to which they originally belonged. Severed hands consequently served as 'human tools' that could be put to use in a number of political, aesthetic, and ideological contexts.
