Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain, 1942: Reproduced from the original typescript, War Department, Washington, DC (Instructions for Servicemen)
I bought this book mainly as part of my living history impression of a World War II American paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne Division. Though it is educational from a historical point of view, and an excellent glimpse into the lives of the Americans that were in Britain in 1943-44 to prepare for the invasion of the continent, I personally didn't learn anything knew from it, just because I've been studying the war and wartime Great Britain for such a long time. It did, however, give me a firmer concept of how the American brass of the period thought of life in Great Britain, and of the how American were used to living. It also gives an idea of how American servicemen at the time thought of themselves and others, based on the way the book communicates its points.

It's also very amusing, as many reviewers have pointed out, and I imagine more amusing to current Brit readers than Americans. Unless an American reader is interested in history, I don't think they would understand a good portion of the content, and certainly not the importance of it. Without jets and the internet in those days, people in every country were more isolated then than we are now. Europeans had an advantage, because the countries are smaller (hence, easier to cross), and so many are so close together. They were/are more likely to have contact with people from other cultures. Americans didn't have that opportunity unless they were wealthy and could travel. Therefore, your average Joe from a mid-size city in the Midwest never considered the fact that English, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh people had a culture that was very different from ours. I could go on and on about that, but that wouldn't be a review of this book if I did.

Suffice it to say that this was an important guide for us Yanks at the time, and it represents a surprising amount of awareness on the part of someone in the American military with a significant enough amount of influence to get this book created. It had to take a fair amount of observation to include everything that's in it. Before I traveled to London for the first (and so far only) time back in 2012, I made sure to look up a lot of things, especially the differences in our common language. That was eye-opening!

I was a little annoyed a couple of years after I bought this book to learn that it's not in the original format. I got a copy of an original, which is in paperback, and which I can bring to living history events without being guilty of having modern or modernized items. The contents of the original lists four more chapters than this version, and is 37 pages long, not 7. The 7-page printing must have been on full-size sheets. The booklet I have has 4 1/2" x 5" pages. I'll post a couple of images for you to see.
Paul's Glory-Christology: Tradition and Rhetoric (Novum Testamentum, Supplements)
Paul's Glory-Christology: Tradition and Rhetoric (Novum Testamentum, Supplements)
This reprint of a yet-to-be-appreciated book provides a scholarly treatment of the particular topic that I believe will soon be recognized as the most important one in all theology, namely, the relationship between the Old Testament Glory Tradition and the New Testament Jesus. I must confess to a strong personal bias: I myself have written a book, as yet unpublished, that makes full use of Newman's research but goes much further. It pursues the topic into and through the entire history of Jewish mysticism and then on to a most unexpected and startling conclusion. Carey C. Newman read a typescript of my book and found it "impressive," but admitted that some of my work, "falls outside of [his] area of expertise," before wishing me "all the best" with my book. So, stay tuned all of you who are interested in cutting-edge developments in Christian apocalypticism and Jewish mysticism---with major implications for comparative religion.
The 100 Best Stocks to Buy in 2020
The 100 Best Stocks to Buy in 2020
I'm deeply disappointed that they've gutted this book series.

Gone are all the charts at the beginning that highlighted certain segments of the market. Gone is all the analysis at the beginning of the book that helped contextualize all their picks. Gone is all the explanations for why they picked 17 new stocks this year.

And most importantly, they don't say how their picks matched up to the success of the S&P 500 last year, which was the benchmark they measured themselves against every single year. With the intellectual dishonesty of refusing to compare their picks to the broader index, it reinforces that they are very poor stock pickers, and I shouldn't spend my money on their book, because I'd earn more investing in an index.

This book has been reduced to a glorified blog post. I will never buy it again.
Dividend Investing Made Easy
Dividend Investing Made Easy
I purchased this book thinking that there might be some content of interest to a person when considering investing in stocks for their dividend yield. Unfortunately, what I found was some extremely basic investment advice that was simplified to the point of being misleading (e.g., attributing dividend returns to the growth in value of a portfolio that was almost certainly driven quite substantially by capital appreciation). There was almost no discussion at all of portfolio construction beyond picking either an ETF or a handful of the "dividend aristocrats". The author explains some basic investing concepts like dollar cost averaging, but there is nothing in this book which makes it worth the price tag. The Investopedia page on "Introduction to Dividends" actually contains more information about how dividends work than this book. If your investing knowledge is at the level where this book is actually helpful for you, you would be better served with a general book on investing rather than one targeted specifically toward dividend stocks.

On top of all this, the author uses large font with lots of white space on the page in order to inflate the page count (as well as a large section full of ads for other books). It took me about 30-45 minutes to read through the whole thing, and I'm usually a slow reader.

The Complete Guide to Hunting, Butchering, and Cooking Wild Game: Volume 2: Small Game and Fowl
I am a fan of Rinella's from watching "Meateater" and listening to his "Meateater" podcast. I bought his first book "Meateater: Adventures in the Life of an American Hunter" and was hooked.

I bought this book via Kindle but after a once-through reading decided to buy the paperback version of it so my other family members could read and reference it too. Once I got the book in hand I re-read it and I'm glad I did. For whatever reason I picked up a lot more from the paperback than I ever did from the Kindle version. I guess it probably has something to do with the reference-book feel this book has and the ability to skip around and gather in the whole picture of what this book offers up. The Kindle format works really well for a novel or a mono-formatted book like a historical non-fiction.......this book is neither.

One thing I want to point out about Rinella..........his style of writing (and talking) and his methods, tools and attitudes towards the animals and pursuit really make sense to me. As a transplanted Mid-westerner now living and hunting in the West myself I can really identify where he's coming from on having to evolve from Midwestern traditions and methods about hunting to the Western US approach to the critters out here in the West. Until I'd read Rinella I hadn't stumbled across anyone that eloquently and accurately describes this transition.
University Of Michigan Vault Wolverine Winter Warm Slouchy Beanie
University Of Michigan Vault Wolverine Winter Warm Slouchy Beanie
The item I received looked nothing like what I ordered. It said it was a warm knit beanie, but it is made of t shirt material. The stitching is poor quality and there is a peice of fabric sticking out of one seam. The mascot in the picture is large and nearly covers the whole beanie, but what I received had a very small mascot on it that looks ridiculous. It is very poor quality and not as pictured. Very unsatisfied!!!
Everyday Africa: 30 Photographers Re-Picturing a Continent
Everyday Africa: 30 Photographers Re-Picturing a Continent
The book is a collection of photographs taken of Africa by African photographers (imagine that!) and avoids many of the tropes of exoticism and fetishism that too many European and American's fall into. Everyday Africa shows the continent in all her brilliance, and, while not shying away from poverty, also celebrates the beauty and diversity of the many lands, cultures and societies which make up all the countries of Africa.
Gorgeously printed in lush color, and carefully designed, the physical object of the book is a joy to hold as well. Everyday Africa is a refreshing and exciting book, and is currently being poured over by my children!
Shot Of Love
Shot Of Love
"I’m still carrying the gift you gave
It’s a part of me now, it’s been cherished and saved
It’ll be with me unto the grave
And then unto eternity"

of all Bob Dylan albums ”Shot of Love” holds 2nd place behind only one album”Saved” this is not to say that you should think”Shot of Love” is a bad album – may God forbid -. Many things here are similar. The Early 80's seemed for him the perfect era to once and for all open up both his heart and soul for the listener, and attempt to be None Other than his Personal Self. We who have followed through all his stages of soul searching remember songs like ”Knocking On Heavens Door” 1973 ”Sara” 1976 or ”I Believe in You” 1979. Shot of Love like it's predecessor "Saved" sees Dylan openly breaking the ties with "staple food" protest songs, but here he truly finds himself and he is attempting a more whole-hearted, or should I say open-hearted approach - more so than on any of this 60's or 70's albums.

Shot of Love may not be his most iconic LP but content wise it is one of his best. Listen again to the brave heroics of "Propety of Jesus", this is not just a dynamite song, in the content lays an important reflection of a certain aspect of life: - to be brave enough to have faith and at the same time to keep this faith alive no matter what.
Vocally Dylan is at his most hearfelt here, and could we have suspected it to be otherwise? On "Shot of Love" Bob Dylan delievers some of the best songs he ever wrote and the way he delievers them as I said is very heartfelt and true. The main theme of the album has to do with faith and findning new ways of learning something about life. the content is full of experiences of the body and the soul and is about communicating about this with other people. All tracks stand out in a personal way, but if I must choose highlights my three track picks for making a compilation CD from my favourite Dylan Albums I choose ”Property of Jesus” which deserves an extra star for it's pathos and carisma "Watered down Love", for rewarding the listener with a fine display what love really means to humanity. The epic ”Every Grain of Sand” also touches on this subject and transmits a special feeling about the Wonders of Creation and The Creator.
other than that I would like to make an honourable mention of a few more:"Heart of Mine” which on the other hand tells us "You can't do the time - don't do the crime." It is a witty reflection of something quite serious - the negative sides of desire -, and it seems no one can handle composing of songs on these themes with the same calibre and in the same way as Bob Dylan does. All I am saying is listen to the lines cited above from "In the Summer Time" one more time feel the earthbound ethereal feel of the poem an rustic musical texture. This is Dylan in his own comfort zone and he opens up his inner soul to anyone with a will to listen. Nothing other than a masterpiece.
If Not for You
If Not for You
1970年発表の『新しい夜明け』の冒頭を飾る、If Not For You。多くの有名なカバーは初期バージョンの歌詞で歌われていますが、この絵本では、ディラン本人の最終バージョンが一字一句変えずに、そのまま使われています(正確に言えば、My sky would fallで始まる繰り返しの部分は省いていますが)。

にもかかわらず、ページを繰れば、この絵本は、ディランのIf Not For Youの、最も大胆で斬新なカバーであることがすぐに分かります。なぜかと言えば、男性が歌えば彼女への、女性が歌えば彼氏への想いを歌っていると聴こえるこの歌を、なんとこの絵本作家は、親の子どもに向ける深い想いを歌った歌になるように、絵を描いているのですから。

絵はとにかくキュートです。特に表紙をめくった瞬間目に入る、子犬の可愛らしさには瞬殺です。しかし、この絵本はただキュートなだけではない。絵本作家の意匠がそこここに見え隠れします。例えば、主役の犬の親子。親子とも、性別がどちらともとれるように描かれています。お父さんでもお母さんでもいい「親」と、男の子でも女の子でもいい「子ども」。そして、親子は似ているのだけれど、毛色が違う。君がいるからこその「新しい夜明け」もちゃんと絵になっています。

というわけで、可愛いのが苦手でなければ、特にお父さん・お母さんにはお勧めの一冊です。ディランらしい、君がいないとwinter would have no springとかanyway it wouldn’t ring trueといったシンプルで誌的な表現もたっぷり味わえます。これを日本語にするのは、アーサー・ビナードさんでないと無理かな?

Tarzan the Terrible
Tarzan the Terrible
What an exciting conclusion to a two part story. Truly well written! In this story Tarzan is once again thrown into an epic adventure as he searches of Jane. In his search he discovers a lost world a prehistoric world, completely untouched by the civilized world. With peril at every turn and danger with each step, Tarzan once again faces unspeakable odd`s. Then to top it off, he is actually being tracked by someone from his past...friend or foe? You won't know until the exciting conclusion of the book. Who is it...? Read and find out.

I know I say this all the time, but I mean it, Burroughs is truly a master at imagination. This was truly one of his best Tarzan adventures yet.

Paquete de licencia de cámara IP Synology para 4 (CLP4)
Paquete de licencia de cámara IP Synology para 4 (CLP4)
So I have become pretty disappointed in Synology. Once own two of their nas drives and wanted home security cameras to record to them. I bought the drives before realizing IU had to pay an additional $200 dollars to get them to activate and record to the nas. OK fine, if it works and its supported then it may be worth it. So total investment between the nas drives and camera fee cars purchased on amazon over a thousand dollars.So the cameras need their surveillance station client to run and to view from an offsite location where I work. Their surveillance station client software to do this just never opens and lets you successfully log in. It is a known problem to them but they keep selling all the camera activation fee cards despite it. Its dishonest. . We appealed to synology tech support which occurs via email and it takes several days for them to respond. They respond with a request to provide a whole bunch of different details including screen shots and data files and etc. When I sent that in they responded again a few days later suggesting the same things they had already suggested and asking for the same data files as if they never bothered to look at your return email. after about 2 weeks of unhelpful advice they said that they just wont support surveillance station anymore. So I am out the cost of the nas, the camera activation fees and time! Thanks for nothing synology! It was so frustrating dealing with them I thru the nas away. I will never purchase a synology product again.
