Joint Ventures; Inside America’s almost legal Marijuana industry by Trish Regan
Requirements: any PDF reader, 1.14MB
Overview: CNBC anchor Trish Regan takes you behind the scenes of America’s thriving pot industry, to show readers things only drug dealers know about this secret world. Forget amber waves of grain. Today, it’s marijuana plants that blanket the nation from sea to shining sea in homes, in backyards, and even in our national parks. In Joint Ventures, Trish Regan takes you behind the scenes to explore every aspect of this flourishing underground economy. Her focus is the so-called Emerald Triangle Northern California’s Mendocino, Humboldt and Trinity counties where many small-time, part-time marijuana growers contribute to a trade that generates roughly a billion dollars a year.
A fascinating investigation into the inner workings of today’s exploding American marijuana industry
Based on extensive research and interviews by Trish Regan, whose Emmy nominated documentary Marijuana, Inc. attracted more viewers than any documentary in CNBC’s history
Regan examines all aspects of this new culture. She reveals how small time growers get their start, make (or lose) a fortune, struggle with violence, try to keep up with constantly changing laws and regulations all while walking an increasingly fine line with the Feds
Regan reports on the current and potential impact of legalized marijuana on local economies, uncovers the link between marijuana and violent Mexican cartels, questions whether decriminalization would work on a national scale, as it has in Portugal since 2001
As the decriminalization and legalization debates gather steam, Joint Ventures arms you with the facts on both sides of the issue.

Download The Present and the Past by Ivy Compton-Burnett (.MOBI)

The Present and the Past by Ivy Compton-Burnett
Requirements: MOBI Reader, 296 KB
Overview: Nine years after her divorce from Cassius Clare, Catherine decides to re-enter his life. Her decision causes a dramatic upheaval in the Clare family and its implications are analysed and redefined, not only in the drawing-room, but in the children’s nursery and the servants’ quarters. At first, Flavia, Cassius’s second wife, feels resentment, fearing that she may be usurped. But as a friendship develops between the two women, it is Cassius who is excluded and whose self-pity intensifies, erupting in a shocking, unexpected way….

Ivy Compton-Burnett (1884-1969) was a contemporary of Virginia Woolf, who wrote in her diary of how her own writing was "much inferior to the bitter truth and intense originality of Miss Compton-Burnett." Ivy Compton Burnett’s own tragic experiences of family life provided some of the material drew on as a novelist. Her books are about money, power, status, incest, adultery, murder, homosexuality, about which she was years ahead of her time, and all the passions and stresses of family life, described with brilliant wit and perception.

Download Weimar Cinema and After by Thomas Elsaesser (.ePUB)

Weimar Cinema and After: Germany’s Historical Imaginary by Thomas Elsaesser
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 3,82 MB
Overview: German cinema of the 1920s is still regarded as one of the ‘golden ages’ of world cinema. Films such as The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, Dr Mabuse the Gambler, Nosferatu, Metropolis, Pandora’s Box and The Blue Angel have long been canonised as classics, but they are also among the key films defining an image of Germany as a nation uneasy with itself. The work of directors like Fritz Lang, F.W. Murnau and G.W. Pabst, which having apparently announced the horrors of fascism, while testifying to the traumas of a defeated nation, still casts a long shadow over cinema in Germany, leaving film history and political history permanently intertwined.

Weimar Cinema and After offers a fresh perspective on this most ‘national’ of national cinemas, re-evaluating the arguments which view genres and movements such as ‘films of the fantastic’, ‘Nazi Cinema’, ‘film noir’ and ‘New German Cinema’ as typically German contributions to twentieth century visual culture. Thomas Elsaesser questions conventional readings which link these genres to romanticism and expressionism, and offers new approaches to analysing the function of national cinema in an advanced ‘culture industry’ and in a Germany constantly reinventing itself both geographically and politically.

Download Mushotoku Mind by Taisen Deshimaru (.ePUB)(.MOBI)

Mushotoku Mind: The Heart of the Heart Sutra by Taisen Deshimaru
Requirements: ePUB or MOBI Reader, 2 MB
Overview: Mushotoku mind means an attitude of no profit, no gain. It is the core of Taisen Deshimaru’s Zen. This respected master, the head of Japanese Soto Zen for all of Europe, moved from Japan in 1967 and brought this work to Paris, from where it was disseminated throughout the West. This book presents his brilliant commentary on the most renowned of Buddhist texts, the Heart Sutra, known in Japanese as Hannya Shingyo-a philosophical investigation on the futility of philosophical investigation.

Deshimaru’s work fills a great gap in the interpretations of this seminal text in that he emphasizes “mind-emptiness” (ku) as the foundation of Zen practice, in contrast to the usual “mindfulness” focus of other Zen approaches. This “emptiness” and “purpose of no purpose” is one of the most difficult ideas for Westerners to understand. Yet we know that our most cherished values are based on mushotoku mind when it comes to love. We value the unselfish love of family or country that is based not on what we can get from the relationship but on what we can give. We know, too, that these virtues are not accomplished directly through our will but indirectly through dropping our expectations.

In his lectures on this subject, gathered here into one volume by translator and Zen teacher Richard Collins, Deshimaru returns to a chorus: Mushotoku mind is the key attitude characterizing the way of the Buddha, the way of the bodhisattva, the way of Zen and zazen, and the way of all sutras (teachings).

The written word has a checkered past in the history of Zen, which offers mind-to-mind transmission of wisdom without scripture and without words. Still, it is difficult to imagine Zen without its literature. Poems, koans, anecdotes, autobiographies, commentaries, sutras, all play a role in the transmission of Zen from the fifth century to the present. Ultimately, these written records can always be only fingers pointing at the moon of zazen.

Interpretations of the Heart Sutra abound, from as early as the T’ang dynasty. Deshimaru’s contribution to this wealth is colored by his Japanese heritage, his knowledge of Western philosophy, the cross-fertilization received from Parisian students of the 1960-70s, and above all by the central place he gives to mushotoku, which Richard Collins translator calls “the heart of the Heart Sutra.”
