Between Now And Then. Between now (today) and then (your last day), you will be asked certain questions, for which there are no easy or one-word answers. What do you want your Will to say? What do you want your money to do for you? What arrangements do you want for your funeral? What kinds of treatment do you want in an extreme (terminal) medical situation? Each question requires thought, conversations, and planning. The information in this book will prepare you for those times when you are faced with these and similar questions and when there is no time left for thinking.

Caught Between Then And Now. When Nicholas Beems and Jared Gruesbeck moved from Chicago to Denver Colorado, they both were looking forward to starting a new life together in a city full of possibilities. Nicholas had been put in charge of running the Denver branch of his family's real estate company Beems Realty, by his father Gregory. Gregory knew that if anyone could get the division back on it's feet and into the local market, his son could. Two years into their relationship, and over one year under their belt in the Mile High City, Nolan Moran was the last person on Nicholas' mind... That all changed, however, one morning when Nicholas received an email... Nolan had been granted early parole... Nicholas' life would never be the same. With his ex-lover and partner of nearly fifteen years now back on the outside, Nicholas is forced to deal with Nolan once again and face the affair that had ended their relationship nearly seven years prior. Feelings that Nicholas had buried and chosen to forget come rushing to the surface as he realizes that avoiding situations only compounds their effects when they come to light a second time. Caught Between Then and Now is the story of one man's struggle to try and put his past behind him while focusing on his future. For Nicolas Beems....nothing could be more complicated...

Discourse Markers. Discourse markers - the particles oh, well, now, then, you know and I mean, and the connectives so, because, and, but and or - perform important functions in conversation. Dr Schiffrin's approach is firmly interdisciplinary, within linguistics and sociology, and her rigourous analysis clearly demonstrates that neither the markers, nor the discourse within which they function, can be understood from one point of view alone, but only as an integration of structural, semantic, pragmatic, and social factors. The core of the book is a comparative analysis of markers within conversational discourse collected by Dr Schiffrin during sociolinguistic fieldwork. The study concludes that markers provide contextual coordinates which aid in the production and interpretation of coherent conversation at both local and global levels of organization. It raises a wide range of theoretical and methodological issues important to discourse analysis - including the relationship between meaning and use, the role of qualitative and quantitative analyses - and the insights it offers will be of particular value to readers confronting the very substantial problems presented by the search for a model of discourse which is based on what people actually say, mean, and do with words in everyday social interaction.

Tuberculosis Then And Now. In Tuberculosis Then and Now leading scholars and new researchers in the field reflect on the changing medical, social, and cultural understanding of the disease and engage in a wider debate about the role of narrative in the social history of medicine and how it informs current debates and issues surrounding the treatment of tuberculosis and other infectious diseases. Through a case study of the history of tuberculosis and its treatment, this collection examines medicine and health care from the perspectives of class, race, and gender, providing a challenging and refreshing addition to the field of bacteria-centred accounts of the history of medicine.

Theory Now And Then. Theory Now and Then contains the more overtly theoretical essays by J. Hillis Miller published between 1966 and 1989. These essays trace the trajectory of theory over the last thirty years in the United States: from the “Continental Shift” announced in the Yale Colloquium of 1965, through Miller’s assimilation of the work of the Geneva Critics, to the shift to that “deconstruction in America” in which Miller played a conspicuous role. Included here are review essays on other theorists’ work: the Geneva Circle including Georges Poulet; Joseph Riddel, Edward Said, Meyer Abrams; and the critics of the “Yale School,” such as Jacques Derrida and others, Paul De Man, Geoffrey Hartman, and Harold Bloom, with whom Miller was associated. Exemplary readings of the theorists themselves, and of texts by Milton, Shelley, Wordsworth, Emerson, George Eliot, Nietzsche, Wallace Stevens, and William Carlos Williams punctuate these essays.

Natives And Settlers Now And Then. “Natives and Settlers provides a beginning to what should be (and should have been) a continuing, respectful discussion.” —Blanca Schorcht, Associate Professor, University of Northern British Columbia. Is Canada truly postcolonial? Burdened by a past that remains ‘refracted’ in its understanding and treatment of Native peoples, this collection reinterprets treaty making and land claims from Aboriginal perspectives. These five essays not only provide fresh insights to the interpretations of treaties and treaty-making processes, but also examine land claims still under negotiation. Natives and Settlers reclaims the vitality of Aboriginal laws and paradigms in Canada, a country new to decolonization.
