Spirit Rock is not a New Age Center, per se. Located in San Francisco´s Bay Area (Marin County´s Woodacre), Spirit Rock is home to Buddhists. They are not Zen Buddhists, as they emphasized. They are Theravada, as is one of their founding members the teacher and popular writer Jack Kornfield. Where it is located, Marin County, many find Spirit Rock a refreshing and spiritual place to visit and take for a retreat. Marin County, and in specific Southern Marin, is not a place for Christian worship. So says a study on religious practice in Marin. One anecdotal piece of evidence indicates religious interest in San Francisco´s Bay Area Marin County. One librarian at the Tiburon library says most spiritual and religious books in their library are New Age. Christian reading isn´t of interest. Jack Kornfield, the Buddhist teacher, is a popular writer and many read his books here in San Francisco Bay Area and the United States. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ralph Morocco.

In englischer Sprache Drei gewaltige Stürme, 10 Windsurfer und der gesamte Planet als Arena. Das waren die atemberaubenden Zutaten für den härtesten Windsurfing Event, der je stattgefunden hat: Red Bull Storm Chase. Vier Monate waren geplant, doch am Ende dauerte die weltweite Sturmjagd fast zwei Jahre. Irland, Tasmanien und Cornwall waren die Austragungsorte, ausgewählt von drei gewaltigen Stürmen. Zehn Weltklasse Windsurfer aus acht Ländern, darunter vier Weltmeister (Thomas Traversa, Marcilio Browne, Victor Fernandez, Josh Angulo), stellten sich den gigantischen Wellen und dem orkanartigem Wind von über 100 km/h. Ob Wettkampf Windsurfen in solchen Stürmen überhaupt möglich ist, wurde selbst von Experten bezweifelt. Der Beweis sind einmalige Bilder vom extremsten Windsurf-Contest aller Zeiten. Bereiche wie Organisation, Sicherheit und Wettervorhersage, die erfolgsentscheidend für den globalen Stand-By Event waren, spielen eine weitere Hauptrolle. Ein tiefer Blick in die Seelen der Weltklasse Sportler verdeutlicht, dass hier ein ganz neues Kapitel des Sports aufgeschlagen wurde. Robby Naish - Windsurf Legende: ´´Der Red Bull Storm Chase lässt ein paar der weltbesten Windsurfer gegen Wellen und Wind antreten, vor denen die meisten von uns bei klarem Verstand so schnell wie möglich wegrennen würden. Das Resultat ist ein einzigartiger Wettkampf. Gefilmt und geschnitten in erstklassiger Qualität zeigt er Windsurfen wie nie zuvor. Dieser Film ist ein absolutes Muss!´´ Teilnehmer: Thomas Traversa (France), Dany Bruch (Germany), Julien Taboulet (France), Marcilio Browne (Brazil), Victor Fernandez (Spain), Robby Swift (United Kingdom), Boujmaa Guilloul (Morocco), Josh Angulo (USA), Leon Jamaer (Germany), Kenneth Danielsen (Denmark)

A madman bent on carving a new nation out of the southwestern United States and Mexico, Halcon´s scheme hinges on Nina´s recent discovery involving Christopher Columbus, and a priceless pre-Columbian antiquity buried in the battered remains of the sunken Italian luxury liner ´´Andrea Doria.´´ Only Kurt Austin and his crack NUMA team stand between Halcon and the ´´Andrea Doria´s´´ silent steel hull -- and if their deadly mission fails, Halcon will ride to power on a wave of death and destruction.
As late as the 1960s, tacos were virtually unknown outside Mexico and the American Southwest. Within fifty years the United States had shipped taco shells everywhere from Alaska to Australia, Morocco to Mongolia. But how did this tasty hand-held food - and Mexican food more broadly - become so ubiquitous? In Planet Taco, Jeffrey Pilcher traces the historical origins and evolution of Mexico´s national cuisine, explores its incarnation as a Mexican American fast-food, shows how surfers became global pioneers of Mexican food, and how Corona beer conquered the world. Pilcher is particularly enlightening on what the history of Mexican food reveals about the uneasy relationship between globalization and authenticity.The burritos and taco shells that many people think of as Mexican were actually created in the United States. But Pilcher argues that the contemporary struggle between globalization and national sovereignty to determine the authenticity of Mexican food goes back hundreds of years. During the nineteenth century, Mexicans searching for a national cuisine were torn between nostalgic ´´Creole´´ Hispanic dishes of the past and French haute cuisine, the global food of the day. Indigenous foods were scorned as unfit for civilized tables. Only when Mexican American dishes were appropriated by the fast food industry and carried around the world did Mexican elites rediscover the foods of the ancient Maya and Aztecs and embrace the indigenous roots of their national cuisine. From a taco cart in Hermosillo, Mexico to the ´´Chili Queens´´ of San Antonio and tamale vendors in L.A., Jeffrey Pilcher follows this highly adaptable cuisine, paying special attention to the people too often overlooked in the battle to define authentic Mexican food: Indigenous Mexicans and Mexican Americans.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.

Jimmy Creech, a United Methodist pastor in North Carolina, was visited one morning in 1984 by Adam, a longtime parishioner whom he liked and respected. Adam said that he was gay, and that he was leaving The United Methodist Church, which had just pronounced that ´´self-avowed practicing homosexuals´´ could not be ordained. He would not be part of a community that excluded him. Creech found himself instinctively supporting Adam, telling him that he was sure that God loved and accepted him as he was. Adam´s Gift is Creech´s inspiring first-person account of how that conversation transformed his life and ministry. Adam´s visit prompted Creech to re-evaluate his belief that homosexuality was a sin, and to research the scriptural basis for the church´s position. He determined that the church was mistaken, that scriptural translations and interpretations had been botched and dangerously distorted. As a Christian, Creech came to believe that discriminating against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people was morally wrong. This understanding compelled him to perform same-gender commitment ceremonies, which conflicted with church directives. Creech was tried twice by The United Methodist Church, and, after the second trial, his ordination credentials were revoked. Adam´s Gift is a moving story and an important chapter in the unfinished struggle for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender civil and human rights.The book is published by Duke University Press. 1.
