In Where You Once Belonged, the best-selling and award-winning novelist of Eventide, Kent Haruf, tells of a small-town hero who is dealt an enviable hand - and cheats with all of the cards. Deftly plotted, defiantly honest, Where You Once Belonged sings the song of a wounded prairie community in a narrative with the earmarks of a modern American classic. In prose as lean and supple as a spring switch, Haruf describes a high school football star who wins the heart of the loveliest girl in the county and the admiration of men twice his age. Fun-loving, independent, Burdette engages in the occasional prank. But when he turns into a man, his high jinks turn into crimes - with unspeakable consequences. Now, eight years later, Burdette has returned to commit his greatest trespass of all. And the people of Holt may not be able to stop him. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kirby Heyborne.

Sugar substitutes have been a part of American life since saccharin was introduced at the 1893 World's Fair. In Empty Pleasures, the first history of artificial sweeteners in America, Carolyn de la Pena blends popular culture with business and women's history, examining the invention, production, marketing, regulation, and consumption of sugar substitutes such as saccharin, Sucaryl, NutraSweet, and Splenda. She describes how saccharin, an accidental laboratory by-product, was transformed from a perceived adulterant into a healthy ingredient. As food producers and pharmaceutical companies worked together to create diet products, savvy women's magazine writers and editors promoted artificially sweetened foods as ideal, modern weight-loss aids, and early diet-plan entrepreneurs built menus and fortunes around pleasurable dieting made possible by artificial sweeteners .NutraSweet, Splenda, and their predecessors have enjoyed enormous success by promising that Americans, especially women, can "have their cake and eat it too," but Empty Pleasures argues that these "sweet cheats" have fostered troubling and unsustainable eating habits and that the promises of artificial sweeteners are ultimately too good to be true. 1.

“The opening pages of Ayana's debut took my breath away. I can't remember when I read anything that moved me quite this way, besides the work of Toni Morrison.”Oprah Winfrey.Fifteen years old and blazing with the hope of a better life, Hattie Shepherd fled the horror of the American South on a dawn train bound for Philadelphia. Hattie’s is a tale of strength, of resilience and heartbreak that spans six decades. Her American dream is shattered time and again: a husband who lies and cheats and nine children raised in a cramped little house that was only ever supposed to be temporary. She keeps the children alive with sheer will and not an ounce of the affection they crave. She knows they don’t think her a kind woman — but how could they understand that all the love she had was used up in feeding them and clothing them. How do you prepare your children for a world you know is cruel?The lives of this unforgettable family form a searing portrait of 20th century America. From the revivalist tents of Alabama to Vietnam, to the black middle-class enclave in the heart of the city, to a filthy bar in the ghetto, The Twelve Tribes of Hattie is an extraordinary, distinctive novel about the guilt, sacrifice, responsibility and heartbreak that are an intrinsic part of ferocious love. 1.

Electronic Gaming Monthly (often abbreviated to EGM) is an American video game magazine being re-launched by EGM Media, LLC. It was previously published by Ziff Davis as part of the 1UP Network and released 12 issues a year (and an occasional extra "13th" issue for the Christmas season, also known as the "Smarch" issue, a reference to an episode of The Simpsons). EGM has concentrated on news regarding current video game consoles (see magazine content for detailed information). The December 2006 issue introduced new sections, expanded reviews, and more focus on the acronym of the magazine's title in a redesign. This was the first issue redesign since June 2003. EGM has said that the reason for the design shift was to keep more in line with the site layout of their once-owned website, 1up.com. In 1994, EGM spawned EGM2. EGM2 focused on expanded cheats and tricks (i.e. with maps and guides). The spin-off publication eventually became Expert Gamer, and finally the defunct GameNOW
Carrie Marie Underwood (born March 10, 1983) is an American country singer and songwriter from Checotah, Oklahoma. She rose to fame as the winner of the fourth season of American Idol. She has since become a multi-platinum selling recording artist, a multiple Grammy Award winner, was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, is a two-time Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Female Vocalist winner, and was the entertainer of the year.

Her second album, Carnival Ride, was released on October 23, 2007. It has so far sold over 3 million copies, and produced five number one country hits on the country charts, "So Small", "All-American Girl", "Last Name" , "Just a Dream" and "I Told You So". Underwood released her third album, Play On, on November 3, 2009.
A tale of good and evil, of corruption and deceit, of prejudice, politics, and power, this compelling account scrutinizes the immensely lucrative Nevada gambling industry's struggle to maintain legitimacy--or at least the appearance of it. Ronald A. Farrell and Carole Case tell how state regulators created the 'Black Book' in the 1960s, a list of 'notorious and unsavory' persons banned forever from owning, managing, or even entering casinos in the state. The regulators dramatically pursued and publicly denounced former lieutenants of Al Capone, alleged overlords of the American Mafia, nationally known professional gamblers, and major casino owners, as well as small-time bookies and hoods, reputed sports fixers, and gambling cheats. To date, thirty-eight names have been entered in the Black Book, including Sam Giancana, Anthony Spilotro, and Frank 'Lefty' Rosenthal. Farrell and Case contend, however, that the denunciations were a melodrama, meant to show that the government was cleansing the city of corruption. Through the Black Book, the regulators focus public attention on 'the Mob,' rather than on a multitude of competing criminal interests already in the gaming industry. The authors uncover evidence of ethnic discrimination by the regulators, including selective prosecution of Italian Americans whose notoriety fit popular Mafia stereotypes. 'The Black Book and the Mob' records hearings of the regulatory commission and the voices of lawyers, government officials, casino owners, and the people named in the Black Book itself. This Las Vegas story is a rebuke to the gaming industry and a cautionary tale for many states and communities now weighing the legalization of casino gambling.
'At age sixteen, in March 1938 Vienna, Austria, I stood trembling and frozen in fear among a cheering mob, ten feet away from Adolph Hitler.' Hilda, in desperation, hope and some 'Chutzpah', cheats Hitler by finding an ingenious way to escape. She miraculously obtains affidavits of support from total strangers in America. Deportation to a concentration camp is near. She forces her way into the office of the American Chief Consul, and his friend takes Hilda to London two days later. She lives in England with foster families. They help her parents flee Nazi-Vienna on the last train before World War II. In 1939, on a ship, chased and attacked by German submarines, Hilda lands in New York and meets her benefactors. In Chicago, at age seventeen, she proposes to, and marries a stranger twice her age to help her parents flee Isle of Man Internment camps. Four years later, the family is happily reunited in Chicago. Hilda returns to Austria to study with the great German Expressionist painter, Oskar Kokoschka, in 1962. Her art career blossoms. The odyssey of this gutsy girl continues in California. Hers is the saga of great trauma and living the American Dream.
