The Ash Wednesday Supper: A New Translation by way of Giordano Bruno, Hilary Gatti (Editor)
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3.Three MB
Overview: Giordano Bruno’s The Ash Wednesday Supper is the primary of six philosophical dialogues in Italian that he wrote and printed in London between 1584 and 1585. It gifts a modern cosmology based at the new Copernican astronomy that Bruno extends to limitless dimensions, filling it with an never-ending choice of planetary methods. As neatly as opening up the standard closed universe and decreasing earth to a tiny speck in an overwhelmingly immense cosmos, Bruno provides a full of life description of his conflict of critiques with the conservative lecturers and theologians he argued with in Oxford and London.
This quantity, containing what has lately been claimed as the general model of Bruno’s Ash Wednesday Supper, gifts a brand new translation in response to a newly edited textual content, with crucial remark that takes account of probably the most present dialogue of the textual, ancient, cosmological and philosophical problems raised on this discussion. It considers Bruno’s paintings as a seminal textual content of the overdue European renaissance.

Requirements: .MP3 reader, 305 MB
Overview: In the new edge-of-your-seat adventure from national best-selling author Nick Petrie, Peter Ash pursues one case – and stumbles into another – in the City of the Blues.
Iraq war veteran Peter Ash is restless in the home he shares with June Cassidy in Washington State. June knows Peter needs to be on the move, so she sends him to Memphis to help her friend Wanda Wyatt, a photographer and war correspondent who’s been receiving peculiar threats. When Peter arrives in Memphis, however, he finds the situation has gone downhill fast – someone has just driven a dump truck into Wanda’s living room. But neither Wanda nor Peter can figure out why.
At the same time, a young, homeless street musician finds himself roped into a plan to rob a jewelry store. The heist doesn’t go as planned, and the young man finds himself holding a sack full of Rolexes and running for his life. When his getaway car breaks down, he steals a new one at gunpoint – Peter’s 1968 green Chevrolet pickup truck.
Peter likes the skinny kid’s smarts and attitude, but he soon discovers the desperate musician is in far worse trouble than he knows. And Wanda’s troubles are only beginning.
Peter finds himself stuck between Memphis gangsters – looking for Rolexes and revenge – and a Mississippi ex-con and his hog-butcher brother looking for a valuable piece of family history that goes all the way back to the Civil War.
