Født Klog. En bog, som gør os alle klogere på børn Alle børn er født kloge. Vi gør som forældre alt, hvad der står i vores magt, for at tilfredsstille det lille væsens behov, og alligevel glemmer mange at lytte til og tale med barnet. Børn forstår, hvad vi siger og mærker, hvordan vi har det – helt fra fødslen. Det er derfor vigtigt at lytte til barnets udtryk, tale med barnet og bruge hele vores sanseapparat for at forstå barnets ønsker og behov. Hvis børn og forældre forstår hinanden bedre, vil de sammen kunne skabe noget helt enestående – et herligt liv for både barnet og forældrene, mener forfatteren til Født klog, sundhedsplejerske Lena Dyhrberg. I den ånd er bogen Født klog blevet til – i ønsket om at give forældre en god forståelse af deres unikke barn. Som sundhedsplejerske gennem mange år er Lena Dyhrberg blevet bekræftet i det spæde barns klogskab: Det nyfødte barn forstår, hvad du siger. Hvis du taler til barnet, så bringer du bare en meddelelse. Hvis du taler med barnet, så kigger du på dit barn, får kontakt og vil kunne se, du får et svar. Svaret kan være, at barnet ændrer mimik. Måske pludrer barnet eller er helt stille.
Det kan også være, at dit barn spræller med hele kroppen og viser dig, at nu skal I have det sjovt. Derfor ændrer barnet kropssprog. Dette og meget andet handler Født klog om – i håbet om, at forældrerollen kan blive lettere at håndtere, når den voksne lytter og taler med barnet.

Who or what the enemy was, Lucky Starr didn't know. but one thing was certain.
The deadly force was not human...not even remotely human!

The Velvet Underground, among the most influential bands of all time, are credited with creating a streetwise, pre-punk sensibility that has become inseparable from the popular image of downtown New York. "Discovered" by Andy Warhol in 1966, the VU - with their original line-up of Lou Reed, John Cale, Sterling Morrison, and Mo Tucker - would soon become the house band of the avantgarde, composing songs simultaneously furious in their abrasiveness and beautiful in their pathos, standing in striking contrast to the prevailing flower power of the era. All Yesterdays' Parties gathers for the first time almost all of the published writings contemporary with the band's existence-from sources as mainstream as the New York Times to vanished voices of the counterculture like Oz, Fusion, and Crawdaddy! The book is a revealing snapshot of an era by trailblazing rock writers such as Lester Bangs, Robert Greenfield, and Paul Williams. With photographs, posters, and other visual evocations of the period throughout, All Yesterdays' Parties is an invaluable resource, a trove of lore for anyone interested in the VU, their roots, and legacy.
*Includes pictures *Discusses the Sunni-Shia divide, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Syrian civil war, the history of the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic State, and al-Qaeda, and more. *Includes footnotes and bibliographies for further reading *Includes a table of contents The Middle East has been a troubled region for centuries, and it is perhaps the most notorious hotspot in the early 21st century, as longstanding political and religious issues continue to roil the region.
As a result, countries across the region have uneasy alliances against each other, open conflicts with some, and an ongoing civil war in Syria that has Iranian and Syrian proxies fighting against other groups supported by different nations.
Throw in substate terrorist groups and militias like the Islamic State, and the mix has become even deadlier of late. Today, the most important religious split is between the Sunnis and the Shias (Shiites) within Islam. Unlike divisions in other faiths - between Conservative and Orthodox Jews or Catholic and Protestant Christians - the split between the Sunnis and Shia has existed almost as long as the faith itself, and it quickly emerged out of tensions created by the political crisis after the death of the Prophet Muhammad. In a sense, what are now two different forms of Islam essentially started as political factions within the unified body of Muslim believers. Over the past few centuries, Christians have mostly been able to live alongside their co-religionists, but the split between the Sunnis and Shias is still so pronounced that many adherents of each branch view each other with disdain if not as outright apostates or non-believers. The religious divide is perhaps the most important fault line in the turbulent Middle East today, with Sunni nations like Egypt and Saudi Arabia at odds with Shiite nations like Iran. At lower levels, non-state groups like the Islamic State and Hezbollah are fighting each other in ways that cross state lines in places like Lebanon, Iraq, and Syria.
Although it is technically a split in religion, the divide has had substantial global ramifications for decades, and there seems to be no end in sight. While the religious divides have spawned groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, and others, the controversial conflict between Israel and the Palestinians continues to be perhaps the most contentious foreign policy issue not just across the Middle East but much of the world, as Western powers have constantly tried to help broker peace over the last several decades. The conflict is also one of the most historically complex, making it all the more important to understand it. The Fault Lines of the Middle East traces the origins of the Sunni-Shia split and the historic effects of the main divide within Islam, which continues to wreak havoc in places like Iraq and Syria today. It also discusses the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Syrian civil war, the historic Iranian Revolution, and the history and beliefs of influential groups like the Muslim Brotherhood. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about the history of the Middle East like never before.
