Instrument : fluteNombre de Pages : 80Marcel Moyse has become one of the legendary great flautists of the 20th century. As a pupil of Tannanel and successor to Gaubert at the Conservatoire National de Paris, he stands in the direct tradition of the ´French School´. How I Stayed in Shape is his last book of studies (1974), presented here for the first time in a trilingual edition (French, German, English). His pedagogic and artistic experiences are set out in their entirety with the aim of helping professional flute players who have little time to practise, and also ‘everyone who loves the flute, while not forgetting the music’. This volume aims to improve the basic aspects of flute playing (formation of tone, intonation, articulation, phrasing) using examples from the repertoire and Moyse´s own detailed comments.Content : Tägliche Übungen, Etüden sowie Stücke und Werkausschnitte verschiedener Komponisten
This sleep learning program was designed to assist the listener in enhancing self-thoughts related to increased self-love, confidence, passion for life, fulfillment and taking good care of oneself. Some say that we are the sum of what we surround ourselves with. For example: What we watch on television What we listen to on the radio Who we choose to surround ourselves with Even the thoughts we think All of the above affect our overall perceptions and thought patterns. Just like the food we eat creates our bodies over time, our thoughts shape who we are and, ultimately, what types of situations we manifest in our lives. Sleep learning can benefit a listener in powerful ways. The mind stays active even while we are sleeping. For example, a mother may sleep soundly through thunderstorms and barking dogs, yet the sound of her baby stirring in the next room will often instantly awaken her. Why not use this time (while you are asleep) to realize your potential? In addition to therapeutic hypnotic techniques and meditative affirmations, this program is further enhanced by the use of brainwave entrainment such as solfeggio tones, isochronic tones, bilateral stimulation, and white noise. Listening at a very low volume while drifting off to sleep is ideal and won´t diminish your results. Accomplish your goals and create the life you´ve always wanted starting today. 1.

Sexual content has certainly received a disproportionate amount of the attention paid to the Internet. What sometimes gets overlooked in the discussions, however, is that the Net has indeed provided an outlet--if not exactly a market--for writers attempting artistic and literary treatments of erotic themes. One writer who earned online celebrity status for her posts of literary erotic fiction is Mary Anne Mohanraj--a writer of powerful voice and impressive range. Her fiction takes many forms and frequently strays from traditional narrative. There are letters, stories told in e-mail exchanges, poems, and stream-of-consciousness musings. The selections, though, are always well-defined characters, no matter how short the writing. Although Mohanraj may take the voice of man or woman, and portrays a variety of sexual orientations, her characters come across as believable individuals, with true-to-life thoughts and--in most cases--behaving in likely ways. Even the exceptions to believability are clearly intentional, as in a comical tale of passion between a beautiful professor and her handsome jock student, which is as much satire of erotica as it is erotica itself. Also worthy of note is that the publisher sought out this book as part of the battle against Internet censorship. Portions of the profits are being contributed to organizations working to protect free speech. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sita Monroe.

What´s your impression of the CIA? A bumbling agency that can´t protect its own spies? A rogue organization prone to covert operations and assassinations? Or a dedicated public service that advances the interests of the United States? Astute TV and movie viewers may have noticed that the CIA´s image in popular media has spanned this entire range, with a decided shift to more positive portrayals in recent years. But what very few people know is that the Central Intelligence Agency has been actively engaged in shaping the content of film and television, especially since it established an entertainment industry liaison program in the mid-1990s. The CIA in Hollywood offers the first full-scale investigation of the relationship between the Agency and the film and television industries. Tricia Jenkins draws on numerous interviews with the CIA´s public affairs staff, operations officers, and historians, as well as with Hollywood technical consultants, producers, and screenwriters who have worked with the Agency, to uncover the nature of the CIA´s role in Hollywood. In particular, she delves into the Agency´s and its officers´ involvement in the production of The Agency, In the Company of Spies, Alias, The Recruit, The Sum of All Fears, Enemy of the State, Syriana, The Good Shepherd, and more. Her research reveals the significant influence that the CIA now wields in Hollywood and raises important and troubling questions about the ethics and legality of a government agency using popular media to manipulate its public image.The book is published by University of Texas Press. 1.
