Resist or not 1
Coucher avec lui ? Jamais ! *** – Je crois que vous avez appuyé sur l’arrêt d’urgence, me dit-il d’un ton calme, d’une voix grave et chaude. – Oh, mon Dieu ! Je me retourne, constate qu’en effet, le bouton scintille d’un rouge vif. Alors que je m’apprête à annuler l’arrêt, sa main se pose sur mon poignet pour me stopper dans mon élan. Je perçois avec acuité la chaleur qui se dégage de sa paume, chaleur qui parcourt tout mon corps, jusqu’au creux de mon ventre. Je me tourne vers lui, interrogative, et suis de nouveau happée par le magnétisme qui se dégage de cet homme. Mon cœur tressaute, cabriole : il se tient vraiment près de moi. Très près. Trop près. Je peux sentir des effluves de son parfum, des notes de citron et de verveine, je crois bien, mêlées à une odeur plus masculine, virile. Tout en plissant les yeux et avec un sourire malicieux, il me dit : – Si j’étais vous, avant de relancer l’ascenseur, je réajusterais les boutons de mon chemisier correctement. Il lâche mon poignet et me désigne mon haut. Je ne comprends pas tout de suite ce qu’il me dit. Décidément… Je reste hypnotisée par son visage si gracieux quelques instants – une éternité ? – puis mon regard descend vérifier que c’est une blague. Hein, c’est une blague ? Ça ne peut qu’être une blague ! Sans réfléchir, je fourre mes affaires dans les mains de l’homme qui me regarde d’un air indéchiffrable. Ni une ni deux, je déboutonne mon chemisier, l’ajuste et le reboutonne aussitôt. Puis je réalise que je viens d’offrir une vue pour le moins explicite à un inconnu. Je relève lentement les yeux de mon vêtement pendant que mes joues s’enflamment et croise un regard amusé. L’homme que j’ai encombré de mes affaires laisse échapper un petit rire en reculant. Un petit rire enchanteur, communicatif, qui résonne entre nous et qui a, outre le fait de me toucher en plein cœur, le pouvoir de me faire sourire moi aussi. – Oh ! Je suis désolée ! Je… n’ai pas réfléchi. Et le record du nombre de Oh stupides prononcés aujourd’hui revient à… Eva Scott ! – Pas de problème, répond-il d’une voix rauque. – Euh… si, quand même ! – Je vous assure, tout va bien, insiste-t-il en me tendant mes affaires. J’ai vu pire, croyez-moi. *** Eva est prête à conquérir New York, à remporter haut la main le concours de création d’une prestigieuse joaillerie, Eva est… en retard pour cette épreuve ! Dans une course contre la montre effrénée, elle se retrouve coincée dans un ascenseur avec un inconnu aussi mystérieux que sexy… et forcément, elle enchaîne les maladresses ! Et l’apothéose, c’est de découvrir que cet homme sorti de ses fantasmes… pourrait devenir son patron. Leur attirance est aussi irrépressible qu’interdite, et à tout désirer, ils pourraient tout perdre ! *** Resist… or not ? de Clara Oz, volume 1 sur 6 Cadeau : à la fin de ce livre, découvrez gratuitement l’extrait d’une autre romance.
This thought-provoking book is divided into two parts, each of which contains four chapters. In Part I, titled "Rethinking Resistance", contributors assert that "resistance" continues to hold utility as both an analytic concept and mode of action in the world, and therefore demands renewed engagement. Part II contains essays that offer novel frames for addressing progressive social change that might serve to replace "resistance" entirely, and thus is entitled "Thinking Beyond".

Resistance to Change
Resistance is at the heart of the change process, yet it is often overlooked or perceived as a negative force. This book explores resistance as a natural, positive, and necessary component of change. Twenty discrete resistance factors_likely to be found in a variety of circumstances_are described. The short vignettes that accompany each make the resistance factors come alive. Beyond gaining greater insights into the nature of these sources of resistance, the reader is provided with specific strategies, or antidotes, to harness the power of resistance, transforming it from a negative to a positive force. An included survey tool, built based on questions presented at the end of each chapter, will assist leaders in assessing potential sources of resistance to change events. An eight-step resistance-based change model_transactional in nature and simple in application_supports the reader in successfully moving nearly any change project toward a positive outcome.

Lex Talionis in Early Judaism and the Exhortation of Jesus in Matthew 5 38 42
In Matthew 5:38-42, Jesus overrides the Old Testament teaching of 'an eye for eye and a tooth for a tooth' - the Lex Talionis law - and commands his disciples to turn the other cheek. James Davis asks how Jesus' teaching in this instance relates to the Old Testament talionic commands, how it relates to New Testament era Judaism and what Jesus required from his disciples and the church. Based on the Old Testament texts such as Leviticus 24, Exodus 22 and Deuteronomy 19, a strong case can be made that the Lex Talionis law was understood to have a literal application there are several texts that text of Leviticus 24 provides the strongest case that a literal and judicial application. However, by the second century AD and later, Jewish rabbinic leadership was essentially unified that the OT did not require a literal talion, but that financial penalties could be substituted in court matters. Yet there is evidence from Philo, Rabbi Eliezer and Josephus that in the first century AD the application of literal talion in judicial matters was a major and viable Jewish viewpoint at the time of Jesus. Jesus instruction represents a different perspective from the OT lex talionis texts and also, possibly, from the Judaism of his time. Jesus commands the general principle of not retaliation against the evil person and intended this teaching to be concretely applied, as borne out in his own life. JSNTS
Handbook of Printed Circuit Manufacturing
Of all the components that go into electronic equipment, the printed circuit probably requires more manufacturing operations-each of which must be per formed by a skilled person-than any other. As a shift supervisor early in my printed circuit career, I had to hire and train personnel for all job functions. The amount of responsibility delegated to my subordinates depended strictly on how well I had been able to train them. Training people can be a trying experience and is always a time-consuming one. It behooved me to help my workers obtain the highest degree of job under standing and skill that they and I were capable of. One hindrance to effective teaching is poor continuity of thought, for example, having to say to a trainee, "Wait a minute; forget what I just told you. We have to go back and do some thing else first. " It was in trying to avoid pitfalls such as this that I undertook a detailed examination of the processes involved, what I thought each trainee had to know, and what questions they would most frequently ask. From this analysis I developed the various process procedures. Only after I had done so was I able to train effectively and with the confidence that I was doing the best possible job. Answers had to be at hand for all of their questions and in what ever detail they needed to know.

William Tyndale (1494-1536) was the first person to translate the Bible into English from its original Greek and Hebrew and the first to print the Bible in English, which he did in exile. Giving the laity access to the word of God outraged the clerical establishment in England: he was condemned, hunted, and eventually murdered. However, his masterly translation formed the basis of all English bibles--including the "King James Bible," many of whose finest passages were taken unchanged, though unacknowledged, from Tyndale's work. This important book, published in the quincentenary year of his birth, is the first major biography of Tyndale in sixty years. It sets the story of his life in the intellectual and literary contexts of his immense achievement and explores his influence on the theology, literature, and humanism of Renaissance and Reformation Europe. David Daniell, editor of Tyndale's New Testament and Tyndale's Old Testament, eloquently describes the dramatic turns in Tyndale's life. Born in England and educated at Oxford, Tyndale was ordained as a priest. When he decided to translate the Bible into English, he realized that it was impossible to do that work in England and moved to Germany, living in exile there and in the Low Countries while he translated and printed first the New Testament and then half of the Old Testament. These were widely circulated—and denounced—in England. Yet Tyndale continued to write from abroad, publishing polemics in defense of the principles of the English reformation. He was seized in Antwerp, imprisoned in Vilvoorde Castle near Brussels, and burnt at the stake for heresy in 1536. Daniell discusses Tyndale's achievement as biblical translator and expositor, analyzes his writing, examines his stylistic influence on writers from Shakespeare to those of the twentieth century, and explores the reasons why he has not been more highly regarded. His book brings to life one of the great geniuses of the age.
