Covering the Body (the title refers to the charge given journalists to follow a president) is a powerful reassessment of the media's role in shaping our collective memory of the assassination--at the same time as it used the assassination coverage to legitimize its own role as official interpreter of American reality. Of the more than fifty reporters covering Kennedy in Dallas, no one actually saw the assassination. And faced with a monumentally important story that was continuously breaking, most journalists had no time to verify leads or substantiate reports. Rather, they took discrete moments of their stories and turned them into one coherent narrative, blurring what was and was not "professional" about their coverage.

"An exhilarating read that could easily be a blockbuster on the screen." - Kirkus Reviews And she thought facing a firing squad was bad… When archaeologist Mara Garrett traveled to North Korea to retrieve the remains of GIs lost in combat, she never imagined she’d be arrested, convicted of spying, and sentenced to death. Her only hope is Curt Dominick, the powerful, ambitious, and infuriatingly sexy US attorney prosecuting her uncle, a former vice president of the United States. What starts off as a rescue mission quickly morphs into a race across the Pacific. Someone is after Mara, and they’ll risk everything to stop her from reaching Washington DC. With betrayal around every corner, Curt and Mara have little reason to trust each other and every reason to deny the sparks between them that blaze hotter than the Hawaiian sun. Still, desire clashes with loyalty when they discover a conspiracy that threatens not only their lives but the national security of the United States. Topics: military thriller, political thriller, political romance, contemporary romance, romantic suspense, thriller, mystery, legal thriller, hot romance, women's romance, action and adventure, mercenaries, alpha hero, strong heroine, scientist heroine, military archaeologist heroine, US Attorney hero, biological warfare, Washington DC, international, North Korea, enemies to lovers, love on the run, Rachel Grant, Evidence Series.

In opposition to an essentialist conceptualization, the social construct of the human body in literature can be analyzed and described by means of effective methodologies that are based on Discourse Theory, Theory of Cultural Transmission and Ecology, System Theory, and Media Theory. In this perspective, the body is perceived as a complex arrangement of substantiation, substitution, and omission depending on demands, expectations, and prohibitions of the dominant discourse network. The term Body-Dialectics stands for the attempt to decipher – and for a moment freeze – the web of such discursive arrangements that constitute the fictitious notion of the body in the framework of a specific historic environment, here in the Age of Goethe.

Every year, thousands of young people die, leaving in their wake circles of grieving friends in need of support. Many look to how clergy understand loss but few religious traditions have a defined mourning process--or even a role in mourning--for non-family members. Faith Unravels speaks to the profound pain experienced by a forgotten mourner, not by making an argument about God or by offering a recipe of rituals, but by sharing a profound story of faith lost and regained anew.

Read People Like a Book--7 ESSENTIAL SKILLS for getting exactly what you want The most important 90% of communication is nonverbal. It's silent--but not hidden. It's instinctual--but you can control it. This book shows you how. You'll learn how to: * Read the nonverbal signs that tell you exactly what people are thinking, feeling, and planning. * Control your own nonverbal communication so you deliver the right message and get the right results. * Decipher gestures and read minds. * Stop sending signals that undercut your words. * Communicate more successfully with friends, family, colleagues, customers, strangers...everyone! Are you trustworthy? Likable? Interesting? Are you the right person to hire? To buy from? People start judging you the instant they meet you--and they never stop. You do the same for them. Based on what? Not just words: 90% of the information people present about themselves is nonverbal. Body Language is about understanding that 90%--and making the most of it. It's about learning to consciously read the silent messages other people are sending...so you know what they're really feeling, thinking, and intending to do. It's about learning to control your own body language so that you communicate more powerfully and successfully with everyone in your life. Need an edge? Ever worry that you're not getting your message across? Then these are the most important communication skills you will ever learn. * Recognize lies, fears, and how people are responding to you Sharpen your intuitions and perceptions and use them to communicate more effectively * Overcome bad body language habits that convey the wrong impression Stop making the innocent mistakes that turn people off * Read people through "context, congruence, and clusters" Use body language together with everything else you know, hear, and see * Gain the charisma that comes with effective listening People want to be heard--learn how to give them what they want
