Real love . . . as seen on TV. A plus-size bachelorette brings a fresh look to a reality show in this razor-sharp, "thoroughly charming" (Hillary Clinton) debut. "Relatable, incredibly smart . . . an extraordinary debut."-Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Date and The Proposal Bea Schumacher is a devastatingly stylish plus-size fashion blogger who has amazing friends, a devoted family, legions of Insta followers-and a massively broken heart. Like the rest of America, Bea indulges in her weekly obsession: the hit reality show Main Squeeze. The fantasy dates! The kiss-off rejections! The surprising amount of guys named Chad! But Bea is sick and tired of the lack of body diversity on the show. Since when is being a size zero a prerequisite for getting engaged on television? Just when Bea has sworn off dating altogether, she gets an intriguing call: Main Squeeze wants her to be its next star, surrounded by men vying for her affections. Bea agrees, on one condition-under no circumstances will she actually fall in love. She's in this to supercharge her career, subvert harmful beauty standards, inspire women across America, and get a free hot air balloon ride. That's it. But when the cameras start rolling, Bea realizes things are more complicated than she anticipated. She's in a whirlwind of sumptuous couture, Internet culture wars, sexy suitors, and an opportunity (or two, or five) to find messy, real-life love in the midst of a made-for-TV fairy tale. In this joyful, wickedly observant debut, Bea has to decide whether it might just be worth trusting these men-and herself-for a chance to live happily ever after.

The Setup: A True Story of Dirty Cops, Soccer M...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The pitch went like this: Chris Butler, a retired cop, ran a private investigator firm in Concord, California. His business had a fascinating angle - his firm was staffed entirely by soccer moms.  In fact, Butler employed PI Super Moms: attractive, organized, smart, and trained in investigative techniques, self-defense, and weaponry. This American Life host Ira Glass described them as "MILF: Charlie's Angels."  When this story came across Pete Crooks's desk when he was working at Diablo magazine in 2010, he was instantly hooked. He'd heard a little bit about Butler and his super moms in the news; they'd been featured in People magazine and on Dr. Phil. What Butler's publicist was offering was too tantalizing to pass up: an opportunity to ride along with Butler and a few of his sexy PIs as they prepared to start filming a reality TV show.  But after the ride-along-and after he started receiving mysterious emails from one of Butler's employees - Crooks started to realize something didn't seem right. After doing a little digging, he discovered the "sting" he'd seen only had one real victim...him. The PI bust had been a setup.  Crooks wasn't a hard-boiled crime reporter. He did lifestyle pieces for a regional magazine. The more he learned about Butler's operation, the more he realized he was in far over his head. But swallowing his fears, he decided he was going to write an expose on Butler and his entire organization. He soon found himself deep in the underbelly of fake sting operations, wannabe celebrities, police corruption, drug-dealing, reality television, double-crossing employees, and more twists and turns than a dozen crime thrillers. 1.

Why Men Are Suspicious of Yoga: And Other Very,...

We live in a world where smart fridges are more articulate than most politicians, where the leaders of two nuclear powers engage in a battle of elementary school wits, and where every fact can be dismissed as fake news. Sometimes it seems like the only humor left is tinged with bitterness and despair. Robert Isenberg doesn’t believe that’s true. He knows it’s possible to find humor - true humor - everywhere. Why is it that a politician’s choice of food makes or breaks his or her career, and why should we care? How important is it to attend a funeral if it means canceling your regular Sunday tennis game? What drives a man’s suspicions of yoga, and, perhaps more importantly, why are wives so determined to overcome such reservations? Robert, aka “robear”, has two wives. Esther is his real-life wife. Esther doesn’t want to have anything to do with his imaginary wife, Dana, who is featured in his essays. Robert created Dana to do and say what he wants, but Dana says and does whatever pleases Dana. Isenberg is an affable guy - the kind of man who tries to get along with automated help systems. From his obsession with “As seen on TV!” products to his exploration of the differences between the sexes, he’s instantly recognizable to listeners. We all have a Robert Isenberg in our life, and that’s a good thing - because we need to laugh. Judge this book by its cover! We all have a Robert Isenberg in our lives. He's the one who sees things a little differently than the rest of us. He's the one who makes you laugh when he tells you what he's thinking. Robert actually asserts that elections are won and lost once the public discovers what the candidates are eating. He insists that had Hillary Clinton had said, "Hold the kale and bring on the iceberg," she would definitely have won by a landslide! 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Ashton Nickerson.

On the Physical Security of Cryptographic Imple...
76,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In modern cryptography, an encryption system is usually studied in the so-called black-box model. In this model, the cryptosystem is seen as an oracle replying to message encryption (and/or decryption) queries according to a secret value: the key. The security of the cryptosystem is then defined following a simple game. An adversary questions the oracle about the encryption (and/or decryption) of messages of its choice and, depending on the answers, attempts to recover the value of the secret key (or to encrypt/decrypt a message for which he did not query the oracle). If by following an optimal strategy the adversary only has a negligible chance of winning, the system is considered as secure. Several cryptosystems have been proved secure in the black-box model. However, this model is not always sufficient to ensure the security of a cryptosystem in practice. Let us consider the example of smart cards which are used as platforms for cryptosystems in various applications such as banking, access control, mobile telephony, pay TV, or electronic passport. By the very nature of these applications, a cryptosystem embedded on a smart card is physically accessible [...]

'Great Adaptations: Screenwriting and Global Storytelling, by Alexis Krasilovsky, is a brilliant exploration of the genesis of some of the most potent ideas and stories from around the globe that have influenced countless film and television narratives – past and present. It’s inspirational and motivates the screenwriter to ideate on new narrative avenues that can explore the myths, legends, fables, fine ideas and literature that have fascinated mankind since the beginning of time. Krasilovsky explores global influences that have shaped the 'male' story and the 'female' story, emphasizes the importance of setting, time and place, and includes a multitude of supporting examples. This book must be included in every academic study on Adaptation and is a 'must have' in every screenwriter’s toolbox.' —Jule Selbo, Screenwriter, Author of Screenplay: Building Story through Character and Film Genre for the Screenwriter; Co-editor of Women Screenwriters, An International Guide. 'Krasilovsky’s book provides a motherlode of broad-ranging insights into the art of adaptation, illuminating an essential truth about the sea of stories in which we all swim. It’s a book every screenwriter should read.' —Robin Swicord, Writer/Director, Wakefield; Screenwriter, Matilda, Little Women, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button 'Alexis Krasilovsky blew me away with her encyclopedic knowledge of movies, books, and theater. She's read and seen everything it seems, and applies the wisdom gained in her analyses of classic adaptations as well as contemporary classics to be. She explores stories from around the globe and how they have found their way into film (and vice versa!). There are helpful hints, too, on how to approach an adaptation for the neophyte screenwriter, and a treasure trove of suggestions for source material. Here's where to start if you want to adapt a book, play, magazine article, or true story into a film.' —Paul Chitlik, Clinical Associate Professor, Screenwriting, Loyola Marymount University 'To my knowledge, there are no other screenwriting books on adaptation that are as global or as inclusive of women and minorities. Professor Krasilovsky inspires both screenwriters and students alike to broaden their world and their perspectives.' —Georgia Jeffries, Emmy-winning Writer/Producer; Associate Professor, USC School of Cinematic Arts 'This book exhibits Professor Krasilovsky's customary diligent scholarship, her clarity of expression, her impassioned defense of quality writing and her original approach to what has, up until now, been a demagogically barren, or at best banal landscape.' —Robert B. Taylor, Screenwriter, Muggers (2000); Screenwriting Lecturer, Bath Spa University, UK 'Great Adaptations: Screenwriting and Global Storytelling, by Alexis Krasilovsky is a great book for any writer. There are so many ideas on every page. In fact, reading about the life of Mary Shelley and how it informed Frankenstein made me want to write a screenplay about her right now. If you want practical advice or just to spark your imagination and consider other ways of storytelling that are fresh to the tired Western view of storytelling, pick up Great Adaptations today.' —Autumn Doerr, Writer/Producer; Author of Baker's Dozen: A Lexi Fagan Mystery 'Great Adaptations is a writer's ultimate toolkit for adapting a wide variety of work for film, TV, and other forms of media. Krasilovsky’s educational background, professional experience, and status as a ‘world citizen’ gives her a unique perspective and ability to share her knowledge about this most challenging literary puzzle. Well done!' —Ken Lee, Vice President, Michael Wiese Productions 'I would highly recommend this book to anyone considering adapting a book into a screenplay— in fact, there's so much insight into the screenwriting process in general, it would be a good idea for any screenwriter to read it. An incredibly smart book, written with an awareness of the readers' needs, and absolutely eye-opening for writers who are looking to expand their knowledge of international cinema as well. This is a remarkable book.' —Anna

Perfect Credit: 7 Steps to a Great Credit Rating

zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

If you have negative marks in your credit history, you already know what a pain it is living with bad credit: you get turned down for credit cards and loans, you pay sky-high interest rates when you do get approved, or you have to go (hat in hand) asking family or friends to co-sign for you or loan you money. The list of indignities you suffer with poor credit goes on and on. Lately, amid the ongoing credit crunch, even people with 'good' credit histories and respectable credit scores are having a tough time. Banks have imposed new fees, raised interest rates, slashed credit lines and even closed accounts of customers with so-called 'good' credit. Which is why, even if you have a fair-to-good credit rating, you need to learn how to achieve 'perfect credit.' Perfect Credit is the definitive guide to getting and keeping outstanding credit. Think of this book as a roadmap for anyone hoping to establish picture-perfect credit, make improvements to have stellar credit, or simply maintain a fantastic credit standing. Right now, roughly 220 million Americans have credit files maintained by the 'Big Three' credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. Of those individuals, about 40 million Americans (roughly 1 out of 5), have very poor credit, or 'deep subprime scores,' according to Experian. Another 50 million adults in the U.S. have no credit files - either because they've never used traditional forms of credit, or because their credit files are 'too thin' to generate a credit score. Perfect Credit offers all these consumers an easy-to-follow blueprint on how to get superb credit - and how to sidestep numerous credit traps and pitfalls along the way. About the Author Lynnette Khalfani-Cox, The Money Coach, is a personal finance expert, television and radio personality and the author of numerous books, including the New York Times bestseller Zero Debt: The Ultimate Guide to Financial Freedom.
