How did powder and paint, once scorned as immoral, become indispensable to millions of respectable women? How did a "kitchen physic," as homemade cosmetics were once called, become a multibillion-dollar industry? And how did men finally take over that rarest of institutions, a woman's business? In Hope in a Jar, historian Kathy Peiss gives us the first full-scale social history of America's beauty culture, from the buttermilk and rice powder recommended by Victorian recipe books to the mass-produced products of our contemporary consumer age. She shows how women, far from being pawns and victims, used makeup to declare their freedom, identity, and sexual allure as they flocked to enter public life. And she highlights the leading role of white and black women—Helena Rubenstein and Annie Turnbo Malone, Elizabeth Arden and Madame C. J. Walker—in shaping a unique industry that relied less on advertising than on women's customs of visiting and conversation. Replete with the voices and experiences of ordinary women, Hope in a Jar is a richly textured account of the ways women created the cosmetics industry and cosmetics created the modern woman.

One man goes on a quest to find his lost love facing not only the gods themselves but also humanity and the forces of nature. In a spiritual adventure the man inspires not only the gods but also the people of the earth to save the world from global warming, war, famine, disease, and abuse. Together the gods and mankind join hands to call forth the evils of the world back into Pandora’s box, which was once released into the world by the mighty Zeus because Prometheus stole fire from Mount Olympus and gave it to man. I wish not to overwhelm the readers by stretching their consciousness beyond the boundaries of their own reason. But for you to gain the most out of your reading experience of The Fallows, you must know that I have worked hard to speak to its readers on three different intellectual levels. And I hope that you will enjoy this book, for in truth I cried tears with every line of poetry that was written, and it’s no lie: The Fallows was truly a remarkably healing experience for me as I hope that it will be as much a healing experience for you. The first intellectual level in which The Fallows speaks is primarily a poetic story. It is a tale about a man who was born into the world without knowing his true family, and after his quest to find them, he comes home to find he has lost the only woman that he loves. In metaphorical language, the man goes into the forest to call upon the birds of the air for love, symbolically representing humanity as John the Baptist in the Bible was once weeping in the wilderness. In the forest he is met by the great phoenix, and he is sent out on a quest to save the earth, and if he accomplishes the phoenix’s quest, the birds of the air will gather to find his love. Left alone and hungry after the phoenix and his kin fly away, the man eats a poisonous flower and perishes, representing the fall of humanity, as Adam and Eve once ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, bringing death and sin into the world. From this point on of this great story, you are left on your own to discover The Fallows; it is a great story about man’s love for woman and woman’s love for man and the love they have for their child and the gods, but most importantly it is about their love for the earth. I do not wish to ruin the rest of the story before you have had the chance to read it yourself, so I will not reveal any more of its major themes. The second intellectual level in which the book speaks is found in the allegorical messages written in the poem that are in reference to my walk across America for love, inspiring the people of the world to unite their strengths, hearts, and resources to heal the earth, which provides for us all. When the sunset rises in New York from the east, early in the morning I will fill a jar with water from the Atlantic Ocean to be carried across America in my backpack to be dumped into the Pacific Ocean in California exactly while the sun is setting over the west. The jar poetically represents Pandora’s box of evils that have been released into the world. What most people don’t know is that it was not Pandora’s box at all which was opened but a jar that was opened because of her curiosity. Thus Pandora’s jar is what was opened to release the evils into the world; the only spiritual force left in the jar was hope. The ancient poems written about Pandora in the past speak of a clay jar that was opened, not a box. Pandora’s box does sound better than Pandora’ jar, but in all actuality there is still a debate over the issue because there are also references to a box. Which one is the truth, we unfortunately may never know. I am walking across America for love and for all lovers that ever were and for all lovers that will ever be to add more emotional charge to the words of love in this poem for all times dedicated to lovers forever and eternal. Because actions will forever speak louder than words. I have read that great writers in the past would go on walks through the e

Everyone, at some time, learns how life can change in a moment: with the crossing of the center line on a highway or the reading of a blood test; a telephone's knell in the still of night or a spouse's hesitation before the unspeakable is spoken. Occasionally, out of the turmoil emerges a work of exceptional wisdom and beauty. Gifts from the Broken Jar is one such work. Psychotherapist PJ Long's life-altering moment came when the bolt of a terrified horse left her brain-injured. She became a stranger to herself, unable to drive a car, prepare a meal, or carry on a conversation. But when PJ began to write, pen and ink acted as needle and thread, mending her torn mind and stitching together a new life. Lessons she had gleaned over years of helping others returned to guide her. And as PJ wrote, she gained profound insight into the resilience of the spirit and the unexpected joys of everyday life.

With no recent publications discussing Prometheus at length, this book provides a much-needed introduction to the Promethean myth of this rebellious god who defied Zeus to steal fire for mankind. Seeking to locate the nature of this compelling tale’s continuing relevance throughout history, Carol Dougherty traces a history of the myth of Prometheus from its origins in ancient Greece, to its resurgence in the works of the Romantic era and beyond. Offering a comparative approach that includes visual material and film, the book reveals a Prometheus who was a rebel against Zeus’ tyranny to Aeschylus, a defender of political and artistic integrity to Percy Bysshe Shelley, and a symbol of technological innovation during the industrial revolution; his resilience and adaptability illuminating his power and importance in Western culture. Prometheus is an essential introduction to the Promethean myth for all readers of classics, the arts and literature alike.

Tin-glazed earthenware had been known in the Middle East from around 1000BC. However, it only became common in northern Europe during the 16th century when it was known as majolica or Delftware as a consequence of the large quantity manufactured in Delft, Holland. Delftware soon became widely used by apothecaries for the storage of powders, ointments, syrups, oils and confections and such drug jars were often highly decorated or labelled to indicate their contents or commemorate events. Manufacture of Delftware drug jars began at certain locations in London in about 1570 until about 1780 by which time tin-glazed earthenware began to be replaced by creamware, the forerunner of our modern white earthenware. English Delftware drug jars were expensive, highly prized objects, and because of their cost largely remained the property of London-based apothecaries. However, in the British Isles, Delftware drug jars were also produced in Liverpool, Glasgow, Dublin and Limerick Today, English Delftware drug jars are highly collectable and rare. Fine examples often sell on the open market for in excess of [pound]10,000. Most of the ceramics are highly decorated with blue-coloured designs.However, multicoloured jars are also known though are very rare. Several museums and individuals hold collections of Delftware drug jars though the collection in the museum of the RPSGB is regarded as the finest in the UK and is of international significance. Until relatively recently, the RPSGB collection had not been fully photographed and catalogued. A comprehensive survey or catalogue of the collection has not previously been published This new title will include an introductory chapter by the Editor, along with a chapter on the history of English Delftware Drug jars by William Jackson a pharmacist historian noted as one of the UK's leading authorities on drug jars. An additional chapter from archaeologists at the Museum of London will give an overview of Delftware manufacture in London. Since fragments of Delftware are readily identifiable and datable the importance of Delftware in dating archaeological excavations will also be described. These three chapters will be illustrated with 220 individual colour photos of drug jars from the RPSGB collection. Each photograph will be systematically captioned with relevant text describing the drug jar, its manufacture, date, etc.

An inspirational success story that shows how anyone can be a champion, overcome challenges and create a better world for yourself and others 65 Roses and a Trunki: Defying the Odds in Life and Business, is the extraordinary success story of entrepreneur Rob Law, designer and inventor of Trunki, the award-winning children's ride-on suitcase that’s sold millions of units worldwide. Born with cystic fibrosis, Rob watched his twin sister die from the same illness at sixteen. Told he could not expect to live into his twenties, he made a promise that he was going to defy the odds and live a long and successful life. Despite being humiliated in Dragons Den where his business was described as “worthless”, Rob went on to create a new category of consumer product, build a global business brand, become an accomplished athlete, get an MBE from the Queen, bring joy to millions of children all over the world and become a father to three children after being told he would die childless. After beating overwhelming odds on the road to success in his personal and professional life, Rob wrote this memoir to help anyone facing difficult challenges in life and business. From brand-building and harnessing your creativity to managing a chronic health condition and facing your demons, you’ll learn how to defy the odds, follow your passion, keep fighting when experts are telling you to quit and overcome every challenge you face. 65 Roses and a Trunki is a life-affirming book.
