Cardiff by the Sea

Cardiff by the Sea By Michael Hemmingson
Corporal Eugene Bell returns from Iraq where he was taken hostage for two weeks by Syrian terrorists, and finds home more confusing and dangerous than the war zone: the woman he had a one night stand with before shipping out, Erin, has a small baby girl that Eugene is convinced is his daughter; Erin is being stalked by a obsessive cop who will do anything to possess her.
Great story. Having been involved from a different vantage point I find experiences unique and inspiring.
I found Cardiff by the Sea to be very informative. I chose this book because I want to be as knowledgeable as possible on the subject of my What I might expect in the future.

Stumbling Over Truth The Inside Story and the Sexed Up Dossier

Stumbling Over Truth The Inside Story and the Sexed Up Dossier By Kevin Marsh
The 2004 report of the Hutton Inquiry created today’s BBC. It cost the corporation its Chairman and Director General and seemed to many to usher in an age of self-doubt and caution. It was also the end of the most extraordinary experiment in news management Britain has ever seen – the decade of Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair’s spin doctor, charged with delivering what Peter Mandelson described as New Labour’s mission to ‘create the truth’. But Lord Hutton condemned the BBC and its journalism without hearing a single word from the man who put the ‘sexed up’ dossier story on the air: Today editor Kevin Marsh. Had Hutton done so, his conclusions would surely have been very different. Now outside the BBC, Marsh can tell for the first time the inside story of Andrew Gilligan’s notorious 6.07 broadcast on the Today programme. He explains how he was certain the story of the ‘sexed up’ dossier was true, but also how Gilligan’s ‘flawed reporting’ fatally damaged the BBC’s case. And he tells of his growing disillusionment with the British media’s aptitude and appetite for holding power to account – or even telling the truth. Stumbling Over Truth is an important book for anyone who wants to understand the toe-to-toe confrontations between Tony Blair’s government and the BBC, and the fight to resist unremitting government attempts to manipulate the media.
Stumbling Over Truth The Inside Story and the Sexed Up Dossier was very good. I didn’t want to put this book down when I read it. The ending really left me hanging though. I wish I could know what happens.
Stumbling Over Truth The Inside Story and the Sexed Up Dossier a good read. It is really different. It causes you to think about the concepts presented. I enjoyed the book.

1ed Un unico Dios Analisis de La Biblia El motivo de ser del By Alberto Canen Sr
EL PORQUÉ DE LA CREACIÓN DEL PUEBLO JUDÍO La tarea trascendental del pueblo elegido. Las políticas de la Iglesia Católica. El fin del politeísmo El pueblo elegido, ¿elegido para qué? Adán y Eva, ¿los primeros de la humanidad o simplemente los primeros del pueblo hebreo? Los judíos, ¿fueron el ejército de Dios? Si hay un sólo Dios, ¿qué pasó con los otros dioses de la antigüedad? Jesús: ¿es Dios o un profeta? ¿Para qué un Mesías? ¿Llegó el Mesías? ¿De qué libera Jesús a la humanidad? La Biblia ¿de qué habla? Alberto Canen encontró respuestas a estas y otras preguntas que muchas veces nos han inquietado y que no hemos podido resolver. Al avanzar con el autor por los textos de la Biblia, el lector percibirá que ante sus ojos se devela una trama encerrada entre sus páginas. Sentirá la misma atracción y curiosidad que vive un detective mientras desentraña un misterio o un arqueólogo ante un descubrimiento. Al encontrar el hilo conductor de esta crónica sagrada, se atan cabos, se unen relatos, se buscan piezas para lograr entender una de las historias más conocidas y -tal vez- menos comprendidas de la Humanidad. En el texto se fusionan citas bíblicas con interpretaciones que surgen de manera espontánea y cautivante, por eso su lectura atrapa. Alberto Canen nos invita a realizar este descubrimiento. A través de una conversación con su hijo menor -en un estilo directo, sencillo y didáctico-,comparte de manera cómplice con el lector sus metódicas reflexiones y sus originales conclusiones.
Now I’m gonna have to go back and read his previous works, and I can’t wait!
