Empty Sleeve - "der leere Ärmel" - augenscheinlichstes Merkmal des Arm-amputierten Pianisten. Paul Wittgenstein verlor im Ersten Weltkrieg seinen rechten Arm und begann eine beispiellose Karriere als Pianist und Produzent. Erst im Dezember 2004 wurde das letzte seiner 17 in Auftrag gegebenen Klavierkonzerte uraufgeführt, jenes von Paul Hindemith. An dem von ihm initiierten Oeuvre an Klavierkonzert-, Solo- und Kammermusikliteratur arbeiteten die Großen der europäischen Musikgeschichte; es reicht von Ravel bis Richard Strauss, von Prokofjew bis Franz Schmidt, von Britten bis Tansman. Paul Wittgensteins Wirken stand bislang im Schatten seines Bruders Ludwig. Seine Geschichte ist auch die einer berühmten Familie, die Österreichs Wirtschaft und Kunstszene geprägt hat; sie ist eine ganz besondere des Exils, der Flucht vor den Nazis, des Freikaufes und der Restitution; sie ist ein Brennspiegel der österreichischen Geschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts und in weiterer Folge Teil der US-amerikanischen Musikszene. Und sie ist eine kaum vergangene: Wittgensteins Witwe, die in Wien geborene und mit ihm ins Exil gegangene Hilde Schania, starb erst 2002; der Nachlass im Ausmaß von dreieinhalb Tonnen kam fast gänzlich in ein Privatarchiv nach Hongkong.

How often do we tend to skip the houses without planets when looking at one's birth chart for the very first time? Interpreting Empty Houses provides a detailed account of these houses that are most often overlooked when delineating horoscopes as they, like houses holding planets, provide valuable insight pertaining to the department of life they each rule. The author explains the meanings of each of the twelve houses when empty as determined by the condition of its planetary ruler as it may be positioned throughout the remaining eleven houses of the horoscope. About the Author: Ana Ruiz was born in Spain and resides in Canada. She has been contributing columns and articles on astrology since she began her path down this road of stellar wisdom during the mid-eighties. Her writings have appeared in various newspapers and magazines such as American Astrology and Dell Horoscope. She has also contributed many articles to the American Federation of Astrologers bulletin; Today's Astrologer, as well as a monthly Sun sign column to their Web site. She is also the author of The Spirit of Ancient Egypt, Daily Life in Ancient Egypt, Prediction Techniques Regarding Romance and The Soul of Andalusia. The author's interest in this area of astrology arose from the fact that she has five planets in the 7th house, leaving exactly half of her natal chart with empty houses. The lack of information on this subject, or books for that matter, further inspired Ruiz to study these houses and share her research with the hopes of filling this gap.

A dystopic look at what happens to one American town when all the fossil fuels run out... It's the near future - the very near future - and the fossil fuels are running out. No gas. No oil. Which means no driving. No heat. Supermarkets are empty. Malls have shut down. Life has just become more local than we ever knew it could be. Nobody expected the end to come this fast. And in the small town of Spring Valley, decisions that once seemed easy are quickly becoming matters of life and death. There is hope - there has to be hope - just there are also sacrifices that need to be made, and a whole society that needs to be rethought.

Critics and readers loved Lisa Scottoline's first collection of true-life stories, which only encouraged her—now she's back with these all-new, exciting adventures. She's farther down the road now, and the scenery has changed—ex-husbands Thing One and Thing Two are in her rear-view mirror, daughter Francesca has moved into an apartment, and Lisa's finding the silver lining in her empty nest, which has lots more room for her shoes. And some things have stayed the same—Mother Mary is still the feistiest octogenarian on the planet, who won't part with her recipe for tomato sauce or her thirty-year old bra. In this book Lisa and Francesca spill all their family secrets—which sound a lot like yours, if you understand that three generations of women is the formula for spontaneous combustion. Inspired by her weekly column entitled, "Chick Wit" for The Philadelphia Inquirer, this is a book you'll have to put down—just to stop laughing.

When Bush came to office in 2001, the 10-year budget balance was officially projected to be at a surplus of $5.6 trillion. But after three big tax cuts, the bursting of the stock-market bubble, and the devastating effects of 9/11on the economy, the surplus has evaporated, and the deficit is expected to grow to $ 5-trillion over the next decade. The domestic deficit is only the half of it. Given our $500 billion trade deficit and our anemic savings rate, we depend on an unprecedented $2 billion of foreign capital every working day. If foreign confidence were to wane, this could lead to the dreaded hard landing. Peter G. Peterson--a lifelong Republican, chairman of the Blackstone Group, and former secretary of commerce under Nixon--shatters the myths with hard facts and a harrowing view of the twin deficit's real impact. Republicans and Democrats alike have mortgaged America's future through reckless tax cuts, out-of-control spending and Enron-style accounting in Congress. And the situation will only get worse as the Baby Boom generation begins to retire, making unprecedented demands on entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare. Despite what Bush says, we are on a path that could end in economic meltdown, and we simply cannot grow out of the deficit. In Running On Empty, Peterson sounds the warning bell and prescribes a set of detailed solutions which, if implemented early, will prevent the need for draconian measures later. He takes us behind the politicians' smoke-and-mirror games, and forcefully explains what we must do to rescue the future of our country.

The level of discourse in campaigns and elections ideally should elevate citizens' knowledge about the candidates and the issues that face the polity. But elections today are often beset by negative campaigns and an emphasis on the 'horse race' over issues of substance. Running on Empty? looks at sixteen carefully selected, highly competitive races in the House and Senate during the 2002 midterm elections. Measuring various aspects of campaign discourse throughout a wide variety of paid and unpaid media coverage—including radio, TV, newspapers, direct mail, and the Internet—the authors arrive at some arresting conclusions about the quality of the messages conveyed, whether positive or negative. In all, this impressive set of original essays by political experts provides a timely assessment of the effectiveness of media reform and the democratization of campaign discourse in theory compared to practice.

Audience, this books speaks out from the mind, body and soul, spiritually, romantically, and common-down to earth real sermons. ‘Sermons from my head’, I once said, our thoughts and our experiences. Others may’ve even fantasized. They’re spoken words, thoughts that reach you, speak to you; spoken words in letting you know that you’re not alone with what you’ve gone through; once thought; and in what you’re experiencing and thinking now. Sermons to help you stand strong. It’s often said that someone else is experiencing a much worse situation than another, which is true. Contrary, others could’ve had a better situation than another. Anyways, when people are in their ordeals, wouldn’t you like to know? Also, to know what they’re thinking? To know another’s thoughts, can give anyone who is concerned with the individual(s), time to intervene with helping to resolve the situation; to help support him or her. And when there are two or more, in a Jesus gathering, he is there to listen first, and second to answer prayer, how and when he decides, to. A couple of words, strong and vivid, can tell the whole story and get you to think of the outcome; to change what you would do or what you did, in the case of. Hearts with Empty Spots are poetic, short sermons of love, hurt, patience, pain, concerns, wantings, desires, caring, wondering, praying, learning, living, growing up, getting strong, realizing, talking to God, asking, giving up, who else feels like this? From self, others, life happenings, experiences, ordeals, pressures, repetitions, wisdom, understandings, independence, loneliness, happiness, waiting on God; Sermons from our hearts that causes us to think, worry, and concentrate on the case. Once from our hearts, later on paper- you’re not the only who thought or preached to yourself THESE in your head.

"Here's to Col's numpty maw and paw for leaving him home alone and expecting everything to stay the way it was. Suckas!" When you're only sixteen, could the events of one night really shape the course of your life? Divert you from becoming the man you might have become, stunt you, burden you, trap you, destroy you, change the very core of you? Leave you empty. Cathy Forde is a leading Scottish novelist (Fat Boy Swim, Skarrs) and this is her first play. It's fast, furious, and like a piece of music, grows and swells to a mind-altering crescendo. The colloquial and dialogue-driven writing, explores themes eminently relevant to teenagers: fitting in with demanding mates, desiring the undesirable and the unobtainable, and severely fractured relations with parents. Cathy Forde's novels are translated into several languages are studied as part of English curriculums throughout the UK. Commissioned by the National Theatre of Scotland as an initiative to encourage younger audiences into the theatre, the play will be produced on tour in Scotland and at a number of exclusive performances for schools, youth groups and colleges March -April 2010.

A Critique of Analytic Philosophy

Peter Unger's provocative new book poses a serious challenge to contemporary analytic philosophy, arguing that to its detriment it focuses the predominance of its energy on "empty ideas." In the mid-twentieth century, philosophers generally agreed that, by contrast with science, philosophy should offer no substantial thoughts about the general nature of concrete reality. Leading philosophers were concerned with little more than the semantics of ordinary words. For example: Our word "perceives" differs from our word "believes" in that the first word is used more strictly than the second. While someone may be correct in saying "I believe there's a table before me" whether or not there is a table before her, she will be correct in saying "I perceive there's a table before me" only if there is a table there. Though just a parochial idea, whether or not it is correct does make a difference to how things are with concrete reality. In Unger's terms, it is a concretely substantial idea. Alongside each such parochial substantial idea, there is an analytic or conceptual thought, as with the thought that someone may believe there is a table before her whether or not there is one, but she will perceive there is a table before her only if there is a table there. Empty of import as to how things are with concrete reality, those thoughts are what Unger calls concretely empty ideas. It is widely assumed that, since about 1970, things had changed thanks to the advent of such thoughts as the content externalism championed by Hilary Putnam and Donald Davidson, various essentialist thoughts offered by Saul Kripke, and so on. Against that assumption, Unger argues that, with hardly any exceptions aside from David Lewis's theory of a plurality of concrete worlds, all of these recent offerings are concretely empty ideas. Except when offering parochial ideas, Peter Unger maintains that mainstream philosophy still offers hardly anything beyond concretely empty ideas.
