About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Operation Car Wash began in March 2014 and went on to become the largest operation against corruption in Brazil s history. It brought to light the fact that Petrobras, that at one point was the fifth most valuable company in the world, had been bled for many years at the hands of criminals. Since the scheme was funding politicians and parties, it is possible to say that this was not just a corruption scandal, but also a real attack on democracy, promoted by parties in power and in the opposition, both in the current government and the previous ones. At first glance, Brazil s Criminal Justice system seems to be undergoing a drastic change with Car Wash. A senator in office was arrested in precautionary custody. Dozens of business owners and executives at the highest levels were also taken into custody and continue being the targets of investigations and criminal proceedings. Finally, it appears that justice became effective for everyone. However, despite the evolution of anti-corruption promoted by Car Wash, the operation is target of severe criticism. Many believe it disrespects civil principles of criminal procedure, leaving fundamental rights in the background. The dubiousness of opinions in relation to the operation, coupled with the political scenario of struggle for power, resulted in Car Wash being politically appropriated by two different narratives. In one, it is propagated that the Workers Party (PT) is responsible for the corruption in Brazil and that it would be enough to remove the party from power to resume the path of economic growth. In another, the operation is accused of being selective, directing investigations at crimes involving the Workers Party (PT) as a way of taking over power through a coup and removing former president Lula from the political scenario. In this context, Lula was charged in the Operation. Paradoxically, the investigations may, however unwittingly, have favored him, who went on to articulate the facts in his favor and capitalize on popular support, sharply reducing his rejection levels, rising in the opinion polls and presenting himself as the strongest candidate for the presidency in 2018. The huge amount of detail in the midst of countless legal controversies generated a series of questions, for example: - Is there any legal reason why Car Wash is only investigating corruption during the government of the Workers Party (PT)? - Could there be a connection between precautionary custody and plea bargains? - Although people say Dilma Roussef s impeachment was a coup, could it somehow have benefited the Worker s Party (PT)? - Was the bench warrant deposition of Lula legal? Was Judge Moro allowed to release the wiretap recordings of Lula? - Who is actually affected by the Supreme Court s (STF) decision that the sentence should be enforced after a conviction is upheld by a Court of Appeals? - Could Car Wash, even involuntarily, have contributed to former president Lula becoming favorite in polls for the presidential election of 2018? These and other questions will be answered here. To facilitate the understanding of the operation, each chapter corresponds to the respective stage of the police investigation and the main legal issues related to each stage will be presented in a simple and straightforward way, at the end of each chapter. In matters involving controversial discussions, legal arguments for and against them will be presented in an impartial, pluralistic and non-partisan manner, at least as far as possible in such a polarized country, so that readers can come to their own conclusions. It is not, therefore, a scientific study of each legal subject, since, due to the complexity of the issues, it would be contrary to the main objective of this book: to synthesize Operation Car Wash, clarifying its main legal controversies and contributing to everyone s informed views on the power struggles in the Brazilian democracy.

About this Item: del Nuevo Extremo, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: Spanish . Brand New Book. This book tries to give tools to women near 40 so they can make knowledgeable decisions, taking into consideration various aspects of pregnancy. It includes sections on the pros and cons of science, realities of postpartum, common fears and prejudices, medical treatments, and many other topics. Deciding to become pregnant at a later age- and being aware of risks- allows potential mothers to continue on a path towards their dreams, but with their feet steadily placed on the ground. Este libro trata de dar herramientas para que una mujer cercana a los 40 pueda tomar decisiones con el mayor conocimiento posible, para eso se consideraran: los pros y los contras desde el lado de la ciencia, los tabues psicologicos, los controles previos, simultaneos y posteriores al embarazo, los tratamientos medicos y sus condicionantes, las alternativas para procrear con diversidad (bancos de ovulos/esperma, alquiler de vientres, etc.), los temores comunes y los prejuicios reales e infundados que impone el marco social y se estudian las muchas veces olvidada presencia paterna en este tipo de crianza, las realidades a enfrentar en el posparto, incluyendo las particularidades de criar con dos generaciones de diferencia y la vuelta al ruedo como mujer, profesional y pareja luego de ser mama a esa edad. Tal vez el mejor avance que ha dado la explosion feminista de decadas pasadas haya sido la de construir el poder de decision de las mujeres. Para lograrlo con sabiduria, el proyecto de vida debe contar con un plan que evalue todas las alternativas involucradas. Decidir con seguridad -aun con riesgos, pero conociendolos- permite un camino garantizado a traves de la senda que se suena, pero con los pies sobre la tierra. Seller Inventory # AAC9789876096683

About this Item: München, Zürich: Piper Verlag, 1989. Taschenbuch. Kartoniert. Condition: Wie neu. Erste Auflage dieser Ausgabe.. 227 (9) Seiten. 19 cm. Guter Zustand. Seiten papierbedingt leicht gebräunt. Mängelstrich auf dem Fußschnitt. In kurzen, imaginären Gesprächen unterhält sich Mrs. Caldwell mit ihrem im Krieg gefallenen einzigen Sohn. Ihre Erinnerungen an unzählige Details aus seinem Leben verbinden sich zu einem geschlossenen Bild. - Camilo José Cela (Camilo José Manuel Juan Ramón Francisco de Jerónimo Cela Trulock, * 11. Mai 1916 in Iria Flavia, Gemeinde Padrón, Provinz A Coruña; † 17. Januar 2002 in Madrid) war ein spanischer Schriftsteller und erhielt 1989 den Nobelpreis für Literatur. Sein Stil wurde als „dunkler Realismus" oder auch „Tremendismo" bezeichnet. Leben: Camilo José Cela wurde als Sohn eines Spaniers und einer Engländerin geboren. Sein Großvater, John Trulock, war Chef der ersten Eisenbahn in Galicien gewesen. 1925 übersiedelte die gesamte Familie nach Madrid. Während seiner Schulzeit erkrankte Camilo an Tuberkulose, so dass er sich in ein Sanatorium begeben musste (1931-1932), wo er viel Gelegenheit zu lesen hatte. 1934 begann er ein Medizinstudium an der Universidad Complutense de Madrid, das er bald aufgab. Statt dessen besuchte er Vorlesungen über Lyrik bei Pedro Salinas, dem er erste Gedichte zeigte und der ihn zum Schreiben ermunterte. Im Spanischen Bürgerkrieg kämpfte er auf der Seite der Frankisten und wurde an der Front verwundet. 1940 begann ein Jurastudium (das er ebenfalls bald abbrach) und veröffentlichte erste Werke. Nach dem Krieg widmete er sich dem Journalismus und arbeitete in der spanischen Zensurbehörde „Cuerpo de Investigación y Vigilancia", der er sich selbst 1938 als Denunziant angeboten hatte.[1] Er veröffentlichte im Alter von 26 Jahren seinen ersten Roman La familia de Pascual Duarte (1942), der wegen der ungewöhnlich realitätsnahen Schilderung von brutalen Gewalttaten einen Skandal hervorrief und zeitweise von der Zensur verboten wurde. Damit wurde Cela schlagartig bekannt und begründete die Richtung des so genannten „tremendismo" in Spanien. 1944 heiratete er María del Rosario Conde Picavea, die ihm zwei Jahre später einen Sohn schenkte, der nach ihm Camilo José getauft wurde. 1954 übersiedelt er auf die Insel Mallorca, die sein Hauptwohnsitz wurde. 1956 gründete er die Zeitschrift Papeles de Son Armadans. Das bekannteste seiner über 70 Werke ist La Colmena (Der Bienenkorb), ein in zahlreichen Erzählfragmenten angeordneter Roman über das Madrid der Nachkriegsjahre. Auch hier warf ihm die Zensur Unmoral und Pornographie vor, weswegen die Erstausgabe 1951 in Buenos Aires erschien; erst 1955 konnte der Roman in einer veränderten Fassung in Barcelona herauskommen. 1982 wurde es unter der Regie von Mario Camus verfilmt (Drehbuch J.L. Dibildos) und 1983 mit dem Goldenen Bären der Berliner Filmfestspiele ausgezeichnet. Seit 1957 war Cela Mitglied der Real Academia de la Lengua Española (Königlichen Spanischen Akademie). Von König Juan Carlos wurde er bald nach dem Übergang zur Demokratie als Parlamentsabgeordneter berufen; von 1977 bis 1979 wirkte er als Senator an der Redaktion der spanischen Verfassung mit. Am 10. März 1991 heiratete er Marina Castaño. 1996 verlieh ihm der spanische König den Titel Marqués de Iria Flavia. Auszeichnungen: 1987 wurde Cela der Príncipe de Asturias de las Letras verliehen. 1989 erhielt er den Nobelpreis für Literatur für seine „reiche und eindringliche Prosa, in der mit verhaltenem Mitgefühl eine herausfordernde Vision der Ausgesetztheit des Menschen gestaltet wird".[2] 1994 erhielt er den Premio Planeta für La Cruz de San Andrés; dabei entfachte sich eine Polemik wegen Plagiats, da eine Autorin angab, Cela habe weite Teile ihres Romans kopiert. 1995 wurde ihm der renommierte Premio Cervantes zugesprochen.

About this Item: Createspace, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. large type edition. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This premium quality large print edition includes the complete, unabridged text of Anthony Hope s classic tale in a freshly edited and newly typeset edition. With a generous 6 x 9 page size, this large print edition is printed on heavyweight 60# bright white paper with a fully laminated cover featuring an original full color design, and includes footnoted annotations, added sparingly, to aid the modern reader with particularly obscure terms and usages. The Prisoner of Zenda follows the adventures of Rudolf Rassendyll, an honorable but idle descendant of a rumored wrong side of the blanket lineage resulting from a dalliance between a visiting King of Ruritania and a very married English countess. Faced with the prospect of actually commencing employment as a diplomatic attache, Rudolf plans to spend time vacationing on the continent, and decides on a visit to Ruritania. A chance encounter with the Crown Prince on the eve of his coronation as king reveals that the two, while not identical, are enough alike to fool most people. A fortunate coincidence, because political intrigue waylays the Prince, the situation demands that the coronation take place as scheduled, and Rassendyll is persuaded by the Prince s aides to stand in for the ceremony. But the deception is immediately complicated by the kidnapping of the real king by his enemies, led by his half-brother, Prince Michael, and the romantic attachment which springs up between Rassendyll and Princess Flavia, the real king s intended bride. Written with a broad, but dry, sense of humor, the story twists and turns through the maneuverings of the opposing factions, a fast-paced adventure story and poignant romance with chases, narrow escapes, duels, deceptions, and unexpected complications. Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins (1863-1933), who published during his lifetime as Anthony Hope, was an English novelist and playwright. Called to the bar by the Middle Temple in 1887, he gave up what was by all accounts a very promising legal career to pursue writing. The author of over thirty novels and several plays, he enjoyed a wide popular following in his time, but is known today primarily for only two of his books: The Prisoner of Zenda (1894) and Rupert of Hentzau (1898), a true sequel. Sometimes identified as a minor classic of English literature, The Prisoner of Zenda received high praise from other writers such as Robert Louis Stevenson and A.E.W. Mason and was a phenomenal success when published, inspiring an entire genre in adventure fiction, the Ruritanian Romance. The high-water mark of Hope s career, the novel has been adapted for film many times, and has also been produced on the stage. Seller Inventory # APC9781492861607

About this Item: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Large Print. Language: Portuguese . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Krausin nasceu e cresceu no Leblon, na Zona Sul do Rio de Janeiro. Campeao em Remo pelo Clube de Regatas Flamengo, Krausin acabou sendo eleito pelos cronistas sociais como o homem mais bonito da Zona Sul do Rio de Janeiro. Todo aquele assedio da imprensa a Krausin indignava a sua mae, Lucy Krausin, a vice-presidente da maior construtora e incorporadora Krausins Engenharia, considerada pelos concorrentes como a dama de ferro, responsavel pela grandiosidade da Krausins Engenharia. Quando Krausin se formou em Arquitetura, ele foi mandado para os Estados Unidos, onde ficou um ano estudando no MIT - Massachusetts Institute of Tecnology, tornando-se overqualified. Ao voltar para o Brasil, ele passou a trabalhar ao lado da mae e do pai, os quais depositavam nele toda confianca de ele vir substitui-los nos negocios da Krausins Engenharia, quando eles nao tiverem mais forcas para trabalharem. Krausin tornou-se um executivo qualificado que trabalhava a frente do marketing da empresa. Isso facilitou continuar tendo contato com a imprensa. A imprensa ja nao o via como o playboy da zona zul carioca, mas como um grande empreendedor da construcao civil. A fama o perseguia, e ele nao se fazia de arrogado com os jornalistas que o acompanhavam, mantendo-o de bracos com a fama, como se ele ainda ostentasse o titulo de campeao de Remo do clube de Regatas Flamengo. Rico, bonito, era comum ve-lo circulando nas mais altas rodas da sociedade carioca, vivendo aquela vida de ostentacao e glamour, como grande empresario, sem, contudo, fugir daquela vida de socialite no circuito da sociedade carioca. Quando conheceu a socialite Flavia Sminolli, filha do rio empresario da siderurgia, Leonardo Sminolli, foi amor a primeira vista. Krausin abdicou do seu trono de playboy da zona sul carioca para mergulhar naquele amor bonito e sensual e se entregar ao amor daquela linda mulher. Ela era o braco direito do pai nos negocios. O que ninguem sabia, nem o pai dela, e que ela usava de vez em quando usava os seus poderes mediunicos para ajudar o pai acumular os milhoes que ele ganhava com as suas negociatas de alto risco, aumentando a sua vasta fortuna. Krausin desconhecia aquele lado mistico da esposa. Ela nunca o disse, e muito menos aos seus pais sobre os seus poderes mediunicos que a permitia ver o que ia acontecer dali a alguns dias. Ela so nao via o que pudesse acontecer com ela. Mas, certa tarde ela teve uma visao que o seu filho ia morrer. E ela pediu que os anjos intercedesse e impedisse que o seu filho sofresse acidente e morresse, e ela morreu na queda do aviao bi-motor da familia, quando eles voltavam de Angra dos Reis. Krausin ficou viuvo. E toda a fortuna dos Sminolli passou para o seu filho, por ser o unico parente dos sminolli. Krausin se ve envolto com uma verdadeira fortuna de seu unico filho com Flavia Sminolli. Ele resolve nao misturar as fortunas. E elege o irmao do finado Leonardo Sminolli para o cargo de executivo da siderurgia. Nao tinha nem um ano e Krausin se casa novamente, desda vez com Kelly Frias, uma promotora de justica do Ministerio Publico do Rio de Janeiro. E com ela tem 3 filhos. Mas, Kelly morre num acidente com o seu carro, no aterro do Flamengo, no Rio de Janeiro. Ele jurou que nao se casara mais. Mas, aquela promessa durou somente ate conhecer jovem musa do volei, Silvia Granero, verdadeira sosia da antiga namorada de Krausin, Flavia Sminolli. Krausin torna-se socio de Flavia. Ele montou a loja Musa do Volei da praia de Ipanema. Ela nao precisou exigir compromisso serio, Krausin leva Sivio para morar de com ele. O sonho de Sivia era engravidar e ter uma filha. Como ela nao engravidava, numa de suas viagens, Krausin trouxe uma crianca recem-nascida para Silvia cria-la como filha. Milagre a parte, tempos depois que Silvia tinha registrada a crianca no cartorio, ela engravida; e da a luz a um casal de gemeos - um menino e uma menina. Krausin viv.
