Charitable Getting

By: Sam Starbuck

Charity in the twenty-first century is a game. The players are artists, salesmen, and idealists, all working together to get something for nothing. At the center of the game stands Bo Sparks, charismatic CEO of SparkVISION Consulting, which runs campaigns for the charities under its care. Surrounded by the wealthy and the desperate, Sparks just wants to do a little good in the world. But this holiday season he has more than his fair share of worries, between a secretive blogger who might be one of his staff, a journalist determined to uncover who it is, and a client who not only doesn’t want to pay their fee, but wants to sue Sparks for telling the truth. Sex scandals, embezzlement, gossip, clandestine love affairs, and one misplaced cake: it’s all in a day’s work for SparkVISION.

Impresii Si Expresii (Reviews and Expressions)

By: Florentin Smarandache; Gheorge Niculescu

A book of poems, short stories, and sayings in Romanian.

Aşa precum poetul Tagore glăsuieşte, „Nimic nu este veşnic, nimic nu dăinuieşte!” Oricât de rău ne este sau bun de ne e traiul, Aicea este Iadul şi tot aici şi Raiul. Nu vrăjmăşiţi, nu faceţi păcate, nici în gând! Iubiţi-vă, că Raiul i-aicea, pe Pământ! Făceţi-vă prieteni, iertaţi-i pe duşmani! Nu fiţi robii averii. Dă-i dracului de bani! Trăieşte în decenţă, fii vesel şi curat; De ură şi prostie, nu fi încătuşat! Trăieşte-ţi viaţa sfântă, în fiecare zi; Gândeşte-te că mâine tu poţi a nu mai fi. C-aşa a zis Tagore: „Nimic nu dăinuieşte, Deci ţine minte asta şi te veseleşte!”. Just as the poet Tagore expresses itself, "Nothing is forever, nothing lasts!" No matter how bad or good we are we're living, And here is where is Hell and Heaven. No enemies do not unfortunately either way! Love you, that heaven is where I on earth! Do your friends, forgive his enemies! Do not be slaves of wealth. Fuck them money! He lives in decency, be cheerful and clean Hateful and stupid, do not be handcuffed! Live your life holy, every day; Just think that tomorrow you can not be. C-as Tagore said: "Nothing endures, So remembe...

Rivals, The

By: Richard Brinsley Sheridan

The play is set in Bath in the 18th century, a town legendary for conspicuous consumption and fashion at the time. Wealthy, fashionable people went there to take the waters, which were believed to have healing properties. The plot centres on the two young lovers, Lydia and Jack. Lydia, who reads a lot of popular novels of the time, wants a purely romantic love affair. To court her, Jack pretends to be Ensign Beverley, a poor officer. Lydia is enthralled with the idea of eloping with a poor soldier in spite of her guardian, Mrs. Malaprop, a moralistic widow. Mrs. Malaprop is the chief comic figure of the play, thanks to her continual misuse of words that sound like the words she intends but mean something completely different. (The term malapropism was coined in reference to the character.) Lydia has two other suitors: Bob Acres (a somewhat buffoonish country gentleman), and Sir Lucius O'Trigger, an impoverished and combative Irish gentleman. Sir Lucius pays Lucy to carry love notes between him and Lydia (who uses the name Delia), but Lucy is swindling him: Delia is actually Mrs. Malaprop....
