" von Nicola Yoon Bereits "Du neben mir" von Nicola Yoon hat mir unheimlich gut gefallen, von daher war ich sehr gespannt auf ihr neuestes Werk. Der Klappentext verspricht eine ganz besondere Liebesgeschichte zwischen zwei Menschen die unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten. Doch in Wahrheit ist es noch so viel mehr als das. Was mir von Anfang wirklich positiv aufgefallen ist, ist das die Autorin wirklich wunderschön mit der Atmosphäre arbeitet.

The Woman Who Gave Mexico to the Conquistadors

Malinali, also known as Malintzín, "Doña Marina" or most commonly as "Malinche," was a native Mexican woman who was given to conquistador Hernan Cortes as a slave in 1519. Malinche soon proved herself very useful to Cortes, as she was able to help him interpret Nahuatl, the language of the mighty Aztec Empire. She was an invaluable asset for Cortes, as she not only translated, but also helped him understand local cultures and politics. She became his mistress as well and bore Cortes a son. Many modern Mexicans see Malinche as a great traitor who betrayed her native cultures to the bloodthirsty Spanish invaders.

Around the world there are hundreds of millions of discarded mobile phones lying around in drawers and boxes, displaced by the bigger screen or better camera of the latest version. But truth be told, even if we were talking about hundreds ofbillionsit would be unlikely to elicit a much different response, because ridiculously big numbers are ridiculously big numbers, right? Seattle-based photographer and activist Chris Jordan is on a mission to make these measures of consumerism manifest through visual art and, as he explained to Gizmag, bridge the disconnect between our mass consumption and its largely invisible consequences.

‘Ordinary’ Ahmed Isah: Meet the fiery man who is shaking Abuja up with ‘Brekete’ (YNaija Long Read)

by Eromo Egbejule One man and his select army of fellow minded people are shaking things up in Abuja. It is 8:35am on a dusty Friday morning in Mpape Hills, Abuja and a restive crowd—all men—from the Apo Mechanic community gathers outside the premises of Crowther Love FM, 104. 5. They look nervous but resolute as they protest the 72-hour ultimatum given by the Federal Capital Territory administration to move out ahead of a planned demolition exercise. They are seeking audience with the Brekete Family Show crew. It is a statement of the level of trust they and thousands of other residents of Abuja and its environs, have reposed in the brand (which claims to be Nigeria’s only reality radio talk magazine show) who have taken it upon themselves to champion the cause of the oppressed in society, or to be as their motto screams, ‘the voice of the voiceless”.

Biography of Elijah, Old Testament Prophet

Elijah was an important Israelite prophet whose name in Hebrew means “my Lord is Jehovah. ” Accounts of Elijah’s life and actions are recorded through 1 and 2 Kings. Aside from coming from the village of Tosabe in Gilead (about which nothing is known), nothing is recorded about his background before he appears suddenly to promote traditional, orthodox Jewish beliefs. When Did Elijah Live?Elijah is described as having lived during the reigns of Israelite kings Ahab, Ahaziah, and Jehoram, so during the first half of the 9th century BCE. His first appearance is about half way through the reign of king Ahab, son of Omri (who founded the northern kingdom in Samaria), which would put him at about 864 BCE.
