Everything You Need to Know About Wicca, from Best-Selling Wicca Author Lisa Chamberlain It is estimated that there are over 1 million practicing Wiccans around the world today. But what is it that has made these people turn their back on the formal, structured religions that encompass the majority of the Western world? In our modern, high-pressured world, many of us fail to take notice the sheer beauty of the natural world surrounding us. In many ways, this is a travesty: the world we live in today seems so completely distant from the one our ancestors lived in, a world where humans and nature were at one, their existence intertwined in the natural cycles of life. Wicca is a new way of life, a religion that takes you back to a more simple time, before the invention of the high-tech gadgetry we see all around us. You will learn to live and appreciate the natural world that surrounds you, celebrating the intricate changes in the seasons and everything they bring — from the bounties of the Summer harvest, to the cold and darkness of the Winter months, as Mother Nature rests in preparation for the next explosive cycle of life that Spring brings. Wicca is a re-incarnation of the very earliest religions, long pre-dating Christianity.
Wiccans celebrate and share many of the same beliefs that these early people held, and try to embrace their way of life, all while remaining fully-functional in today's modern world. Getting Started as a Wiccan If you’re sold on this new, exciting, peaceful way of life, that’s great! Good to have you on-board. Unfortunately, and despite this commitment, this is where many people get stumped. One of the biggest questions I hear would-be Wiccans ask: “how do I start practicing Wicca?” The truth is, there is no right answer. If you endeavour to learn as much as possible about this religion, follow the core principles (for example, the Threefold Law), and revere the natural world surrounding you, as far as I’m concerned, you’re a Wiccan. If you’re just starting out, I’m sure this vague answer is of little help to you! That’s why I set out to write this mini-series of books, titled Practicing the Craft. In this particular book, you’ll learn everything you need to know about Wicca Book of Shadows – what they are, their history, and what to include in your own Book of Shadows. Wicca Book of Shadows Practicing magic isn’t compulsory for Wiccans, however many people are inevitably attracted to the religion by the potential to positively change their lives for the better. As such, spellwork is one of the most discussed parts of being Wiccan. For those wanting to start practicing magic, keeping a Book of Shadows is a good starting point. A Book of Shadows is the ideal place to document your Wiccan journey, write down detailed spell outlines, and write any other information that may help you going forward. Because it contains all of your spells, many Wiccans will take their Book of Shadows into the circle during spellwork, too. Having a beautiful, leather-bound book will make the spell crafting process far more authentic – though you can use any book you like for constructing your own book. Due to the contents, many Wiccans are very private about their Book of Shadows. As such, you will probably want to take proactive steps towards protecting your book. This guide includes several privacy tips, as well as a dedicated spell for protecting your book.

In "Lovebook", il primo romanzo, è quello di una bambina di otto anni che vede un ragazzo e capisce che lo amerà per tutta la vita. In "Il teorema del tempo perso" è quello di un uomo in carriera che sniffa cocaina e passa da un'amante all'altra finché non arriva una donna a ridare colore e significato alla sua esistenza. Simona Sparaco racconta storie come queste, storie del nostro tempo. Il tempo veloce di "Lovebook" e dell'amore nell'epoca di internet, in cui, nonostante tutto si consumi in modo rapido e bulimico, può sbocciare lo stesso un sentimento intenso e sofferto, capace di attraversare gli oceani.
E poi ci sono la concitazione e la follia di "Il teorema del tempo perso", in cui la frenesia spazza via ogni cosa, e solo lo sguardo di una sconosciuta può far battere il cuore al ritmo giusto. Per la prima volta raccolte in un unico volume due romanzi, due storie vere, semplici e complicate come l'amore, che non smetteranno mai di farci sognare.
"Il teorema del tempo perso" è stato precedentemente pubblicato nella collana "Anagramma" con il titolo "Bastardi senza amore".
The FUNDAMENTALS OF MATHEMATICS, 9th Edition offers a comprehensive review of all basic mathematics concepts and prepares students for further coursework. The clear exposition and the consistency of presentation make learning arithmetic accessible for all. Key concepts are presented in section objectives and further defined within the context of How and Why; providing a strong foundation for learning. The predominant emphasis of the book focuses on problem-solving, skills, concepts, and applications based on "real world" data, with some introductory algebra integrated throughout. The authors feel strongly about making the connection between mathematics and the modern, day-to-day activities of students. This textbook is suitable for individual study or for a variety of course formats: lab, self-paced, lecture, group or combined formats.
Though the mathematical content of FUNDAMENTALS OF MATHEMATICS is elementary, students using this textbook are often mature adults, bringing with them adult attitudes and experiences and a broad range of abilities. Teaching elementary content to these students, therefore, is effective when it accounts for their distinct and diverse adult needs. Using Fundamentals of Math meets three needs of students which are: students must establish good study habits and overcome math anxiety; students must see connections between mathematics and the modern day-to-day world of adult activities; and students must be paced and challenged according to their individual level of understanding.

Practical Project Management for Agile Nonprofits introduces the reader to the basic concepts of project management. It provides dozens of approaches and templates to help nonprofit managers quickly implement practices to help them manage their limited resources, both financial and volunteer. The book emphasizes using appropriate project management practices, those that are not burdensome but rather agile in their approach. In keeping with this theme, the book explores how social media can be used to assist in the management of time-sensitive projects. Readers will learn how to apply just enough project management to: • Be an active leader and a superior project manager • Respond with agility to change and the unexpected • Focus your efforts on what truly matters • Recruit and engage a new generation of volunteers • Build a framework that ensures project success • Keep all stakeholders involved with the project satisfied The book also addresses nonprofit governance and shows how project portfolio management can be used to assist in communicating with boards of directors and other governing entities when crucial resource decisions need to be made. Development office managers can easily implement portfolio management to facilitate the assignment of volunteers and to visually portray project activities to stakeholders. Finally, real-world case studies on project planning, portfolio management, and volunteer-managed projects will demonstrate how others have achieved project success.
