A fascinating look at compulsive hoarding by a woman whose mother suffers from the disease. To be the child of a compulsive hoarder is to live in a permanent state of unease. Because if my mother is one of those crazy junk-house people, then what does that make me? When her divorced mother was diagnosed with cancer, New York City writer Jessie Sholl returned to her hometown of Minneapolis to help her prepare for her upcoming surgery and get her affairs in order. While a daunting task for any adult dealing with an aging parent, it’s compounded for Sholl by one lifelong, complex, and confounding truth: her mother is a compulsive hoarder. Dirty Secret is a daughter’s powerful memoir of confronting her mother’s disorder, of searching for the normalcy that was never hers as a child, and, finally, cleaning out the clutter of her mother’s home in the hopes of salvaging the true heart of their relationship—before it’s too late. Growing up, young Jessie knew her mother wasn’t like other mothers: chronically disorganized, she might forgo picking Jessie up from kindergarten to spend the afternoon thrift store shopping. Now, tracing the downward spiral in her mother’s hoarding behavior to the death of a long-time boyfriend, she bravely wades into a pathological sea of stuff: broken appliances, moldy cowboy boots, twenty identical pairs of graying bargain-bin sneakers, abandoned arts and crafts, newspapers, magazines, a dresser drawer crammed with discarded eyeglasses, shovelfuls of junk mail . . . the things that become a hoarder’s “treasures.” With candor, wit, and not a drop of sentimentality, Jessie Sholl explores the many personal and psychological ramifications of hoarding while telling an unforgettable mother-daughter tale.

As our world seems to be spinning out of control, where should we turn for insight into the end times? End Times and the Secret of the Mahdi is an action plan for living confidently in these turbulent and uncertain times. In this exciting new book, Dr. Michael Youssef examines current events in light of end times prophecies, revealing: * Striking parallels between the Antichrist of Revelation and the Mahdi of Islam * The rise of ISIS and other events leading to the end times * The movement toward a one-world government * Insights into the events of the Great Tribulation Though most of Revelation deals with future events, this book is not primarily about the future. It's about the present -- your present. As you read these pages, you will be encouraged to stand for truth without compromise as God moves human events toward a dramatic and triumphant conclusion. And even when it appears that evil is winning, you will be assured by God's promises and filled with eager expectation for our Lord's return.

En 1953, James Watson et Francis Crick, deux très jeunes scientifiques encore inconnus, font une découverte exceptionnelle : la double hélice. Elle leur vaut le prix Nobel. James Watson offre dans ce nouveau livre sa vision de ce qu'a été la révolution génétique. Il donne les clés des mécanismes moléculaires à la base de ce qu'est le vivant. Il montre combien nos connaissances en génétique affectent ce qu'il faut penser de nos origines et de notre identité. Et lui qui, durant toutes ces années, est resté au cœur des recherches les plus avancées nous ouvre au monde nouveau qui s'offre à nous en s'interrogeant sur les enjeux des conséquences majeures de la révolution génétique (OGM, thérapies géniques, clonage, empreintes génétiques).
