Olympic rowers Gary and Paul O’Donovan may be the face of Irish rowing and Skibbereen Rowing Club, and have enormously increased the popularity of rowing in Ireland, but they're just one piece of a much larger jigsaw. Without their club and the people behind the scenes, they wouldn’t be Olympic silver medalists, 2018 world champions, former European champions and, in Paul's case, a three-time world champion. Almost one hundred Skibbereen Rowing Club athletes have represented Ireland at various regattas over the years; a staggering figure when viewed in light of the size of the club. Founded in 1970, it is now the undisputed most successful rowing club in the country, producing five Olympic rowers since 2000 and four world champions between 2016 and 2018. It is the characters involved in the club, the coaches, members and the athletes themselves, who come together to make Skibbereen Rowing Club what it is. Something in the Water reveals what goes on behind the scenes to create an environment that allows locals to excel on the national and international stages. The story is told through the people and families involved, showing how relatable they are to people around the country.

Willoughby's Wildlife Story Books Series This book of short stories is part of an educational project designed to facilitate 'kids teaching kids' about local wildlife in the Willoughby area. Year 5 classes at each primary school in the Willoughby City LGA were asked to focus on their local 'water catchment' and the wildlife that depends on it. Then they shared their knowledge by writing a short story on a particular animal and reading it to a younger student. Every school that participated in the project has short stories and or artwork published in this compilation book, which is part of a collection of story books held at local and school libraries across Willoughby. This year Willoughby's stories on catchments and wildlife will go to schools and libraries across the Sydney region with the help of special funding from The Greater Sydney Local Land Services. Thus spreading the conservation message further.

Go-getter Ariel Anderson is back in Bliss, West Virginia. She's got to shoot a TV spot, and undo her (undeserved) wild-child reputation. But there's something downright sexy happening in Bliss. And inexplicably, Ariel aches to be more naughty than nice. Especially after colliding with Rex Houston, the hottest CDC virus-chasing "cowboy" this side of the mountains. He's testing the local spring for a love bug dubbed "Romeo" that's reputed to cause sexual mayhem for seven straight days. For the first time in sixty years, Bliss is going "buggy." Romantic songs on the radio. Restaurant breakfast specials for two. The whole town is under some spell. Now Rex and Ariel are testing some steamy waters of their own. Maybe this myth was never meant to be debugged.

While vacationing in Maine, Professor Peter Shandy confronts a poisonous potpie. Massachusetts horticulturalist Peter Shandy is famous for his rutabagas, but he comes to Maine with a loftier plant in mind. Specifically, he wants to size up the world-renowned lupines of Frances Rondel, a nonagenarian whose legendary flowers are even more beautiful in life than they are in myth. Shandy is bitterly jealous, but finds a major distraction in the dining room of the country inn where he's staying. He may grow wretched lupines, but no gardener can solve a murder like Peter Shandy. The corpse belongs to the late Jasper Flodge, a local loudmouth with a toupee and a sizeable gut. Shoveling down the last bites of a chicken potpie, Flodge clutches his chest and falls dead. Suddenly with more to do than stopping to smell the lupines, Shandy must ask himself: Which Maine cook has the bad taste to flavor chicken with cyanide? Review Quotes.

Gregor Demarkian returns in a mindbending case of death and disappearance amongst the wealthy suburban elite. In Waldorf Pines, a very rich, gated suburb of Philadelphia, ostentation and pretension are the order of the day. But even by the local standards, Martha Heydrich is a stone cold pain. She's the stay-at-home wife of a very rich husband, drives a pink sports car everywhere and is on all the prominent local committees. She's fake, into everybody's business and is rumored to be having an affair with a local teenager, Michael Platte. One morning she seemingly vanishes from her house and later that night her husband Arthur returns home to find the pool house ablaze. Once the fire is extinguished, the police discover two bodies—one is Michael Platte and the other, too damaged to be recognizable, is presumed to be Martha Heydrich. The police think they know what happened—that Arthur killed his wife and her lover over the affair. But then the DNA results come back and the second body isn't Martha's at all, it is an unknown man. With their theory in tatters, and Martha nowhere to be found, the police to turn to ex-FBI agent Gregor Demarkian to help them unravel this most puzzling of cases.

Author: Avery Novitch
Since the early nineteenth century Saratoga Springs, New York has been regarded as a preeminent watering-place. While it has not remained steadfastly en vogue, Saratoga has always had a unique relationship to fashion. What has distinguished Saratoga from similar resort communities is the value assigned to both the leisure class and the aspirational class. For the past two centuries, the city has developed a variety of institutions and cultural fixtures that garnered publicity and enormous waves of tourism. Scholars, however, have generally neglected to analyze the city using economic and social class-based theory. Examining Saratoga and the innumerable ways that its visitors engaged in meaningful consumption reveals valuable information about the relationship between resorts, leisure, and fashion. This paper aims to provide a cultural study of Saratoga Springs, New York from 1875 to 1925. Many historians fail to explore this period, due to the misconception that the value of the city’s history lessened after the Civil War, as it altered the course of domestic tourism. The first chapter of this paper will analyze the social scene around the mineral springs in relation to wellness and inconspicuous consumption. The second chapter will interrogate the relationship between Saratoga’s hotel scene, the culture of the Race Course, and conspicuous consumption and conspicuous leisure. This qualifying paper aims to analyze this prolific watering-place through the lens of Thorstein Veblen’s 1899 Theory of the Leisure Class and Elizabeth Currid-Halkett’s 2017 theory of the aspirational class, and in doing so, engage in crucial discussions regarding resort culture, social and economic hierarchies, and American ideology.

“The latest hot Swedish import.”—Entertainment Weekly “One of those books that will keep you up throughout the night...Make room on your shelf—and calendar—for this one.”—Bookreporter.com Police superintendent Malin Fors returns in this chilling third novel from the critically acclaimed author of Midwinter Blood, the first in the series and “a splendid representative of the Swedish crime novel, in all its elegance and eeriness” (Booklist, starred review). Autumn rains are pouring down on the Swedish countryside, but it’s the discovery of a brutally stabbed body floating facedown in the moat of Skogså Castle that chills one town to the bone. Jerry Petersson, the castle’s new owner and a notoriously ruthless lawyer and entrepreneur, is now, shall we say, permanently out of business. Meanwhile, Malin Fors, the brilliant but flawed star of the local police force, is already struggling to keep her life together following the recent murder attempt on her teenage daughter, Tove. Now, as the Petersson case forces Malin to delve deep into her town’s history and her own family’s past, the secrets she uncovers threaten to drown her, too.

To be oneself was a supreme, gleaming triumph of infinity This is the insight that flashes upon Ursula as she struggles to assert her individuality and to stand separate from her family and her surroundings on the brink of womanhood and the modern world. In The Rainbow (1915) Lawrence challenged the customary limitations of language and convention to carry into the structure of his prose the fascination with boundaries and space that characterize the entire novel. Condemned and suppressed on its first publication for its open treatment of sexuality and its `unpatriotic' spirit, the novel chronicles the lives of three generations of the Brangwen family over a period of more than 60 years, setting them against the emergence of modern England. The central figure of ursula becomes the focus of Lawrence's examination of relationships and the conflicts they bring, and the inextricable mingling of the physical and the spiritual. Suffused with biblical imagery, The Rainbow addresses searching human issues in a setting of precise and vivid detail. In her introduction to this edition Kate Flint illuminates Lawrence's aims and achievements against the background of the burgeoning century. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.
