From the start of the new Australian nation in 1901, to the use of the female contraceptive pill in 1961, Let’s Talk About Sex explores the ways sexuality has been constructed, understood and experienced in Australia. Far from being something hidden and private, this work brings sexuality out into the open, and explains why sex is of social, cultural, political and economic importance. Let’s Talk About Sex is an inclusive history, surveying multiple and interwoven forms of sexuality, desire, pleasure, regulation and resistance. It begins with the long Victorian period: the hidden desires of women and the “hydraulic” sexual needs of men, both in the cities and on the frontier. It moves across the decades, considering heterosexuality, homosexuality, lesbians and nascent ideas about queer and sexual difference. Lisa Featherstone highlights the tensions of the ages: venereal disease, homophobia, birth control, rape and child sexual assault. She analyses the ways non-normative sexuality was constructed as evil and perverse, but also how men and women responded to this pathologising of their desires. Let’s Talk About Sex provides a fascinating account of sex, gender, age and race, across the formative years of Australian society.

For his 2007 critically acclaimed 33 1/3 series title, Let's Talk About Love, Carl Wilson went on a quest to find his inner Céline Dion fan and explore how we define ourselves by what we call good and bad, what we love and what we hate. At once among the most widely beloved and most reviled and lampooned pop stars of the past few decades, Céline Dion's critics call her mawkish and overblown while millions of fans around the world adore her "huge pipes�? and even bigger feelings. How can anyone say which side is right? This new, expanded edition goes even further, calling on thirteen prominent writers and musicians to respond to themes ranging from sentiment and kitsch to cultural capital and musical snobbery. The original text is followed by lively arguments and stories from Nick Hornby, Krist Novoselic, Ann Powers, Mary Gaitskill, James Franco, Sheila Heti and others. In a new afterword, Carl Wilson examines recent cultural changes in love and hate, including the impact of technology and social media on how taste works (or doesn't) in the 21st century.

A revolutionary and hopeful look at depression as a silent epidemic in men that manifests as workaholism, alcoholism, rage, difficulty with intimacy, and abusive behavior by the cofounder of Harvard’s Gender Research Project. Twenty years of experience treating men and their families has convinced psychotherapist Terrence Real that depression is a silent epidemic in men—that men hide their condition from family, friends, and themselves to avoid the stigma of depression’s “un-manliness.” Problems that we think of as typically male—difficulty with intimacy, workaholism, alcoholism, abusive behavior, and rage—are really attempts to escape depression. And these escape attempts only hurt the people men love and pass their condition on to their children. This groundbreaking book is the “pathway out of darkness” that these men and their families seek. Real reveals how men can unearth their pain, heal themselves, restore relationships, and break the legacy of abuse. He mixes penetrating analysis with compelling tales of his patients and even his own experiences with depression as the son of a violent, depressed father and the father of two young sons.

Wovon ich rede, wenn ich vom Laufen rede

Für Läufer und Leser: Murakamis persönlichstes Buch Zwei Leidenschaften bestimmen Haruki Murakamis Leben: Schreiben und Laufen. Eines verbindet beide Tätigkeiten – ihre Intensität. Für Haruki Murakami bedeutet das Laufen ein zweites Leben, in dem er sich Kraft, Inspiration, vor allem aber die Zähigkeit zum Schreiben holt. Der Einfall und Entschluss, Romanautor zu werden, kam ihm beim Sport. Das Sitzen am Schreibtisch gleicht er mit dem Laufen aus. Nach langsamen ersten Schritten hat er sich in den vergangenen dreißig Jahren professionalisiert: Längst sind zu den jährlichen Marathons auch Triathlonwettbewerbe und Ultralangläufe von 100 Kilometern hinzugekommen. Haruki Murakami erzählt eindringlich und komisch von seinen Frustrationen und vom Kampf gegen das stets lauernde Versagen und wie er es überwindet. Denn für ihn bleibt das Laufen ein großes, wortloses Glück. Für seinen Grabstein wünscht er sich die Inschrift: „Haruki Murakami 1949-20**, Schriftsteller (und Läufer) – Wenigstens ist er nie gegangen".

That neither nature nor nurture bears exclusive responsibility for a child's character is self-evident. But generalizations about genes are likely to provide cold comfort if it's your own child who just opened fire on his feellow algebra students and whose class photograph—with its unseemly grin—is shown on the evening news coast-to-coast. If the question of who's to blame for teenage atrocity intrigues news-watching voyeurs, it tortures our narrator, Eva Khatchadourian. Two years before the opening of the novel, her son, Kevin, murdered seven of his fellow high school students, a cafeteria worker, and the much-beloved teacher who had tried to befriend him. Because his sixteenth birthday arrived two days after the killings, he received a lenient sentence and is currently in a prison for young offenders in upstate New York. In relating the story of Kevin's upbringing, Eva addresses her estranged husband, Frank, through a series of startingly direct letters. Fearing that her own shortcomings may have shaped what her son became, she confesses to a deep, long-standing ambivalence about both motherhood in general—and Kevin in particular. How much is her fault? We Need To Talk About Kevin offers no at explanations for why so many white, well-to-do adolescents—whether in Pearl, Paducah, Springfield, or Littleton—have gone nihilistically off the rails while growing up in the most prosperous country in history. Instead, Lionel Shriver tells a compelling, absorbing, and resonant story with an explosive, haunting ending. She considers motherhood, marriage, family, career—while framing these horrifying tableaus of teenage carnage as metaphors for the larger tragedy of a country where everything works, nobody starves, and anything can be bought but a sense of purpose.

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Journalismus, Publizistik, Note: 2,0, Hochschule Darmstadt, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Tatsache, dass Radio heute in aller Regel „nebenbei“ genutzt wird und man die Hörer mit der Musik gewinnt, hat zu einer weitgehenden ‚Entwortung‘ vieler Programme geführt. Da heute auch ein Großteil der öffentlich-rechtlichen Sender formatierte (Tages-) Begleitwellen sind, stellt sich jedoch die Frage, ob der öffentlich-rechtliche Rundfunk seinem Programmauftrag in all seinen Wellen überhaupt noch ausreichend gerecht wird – bezieht sich der gesellschaftlich-relevante Auftrag doch schließlich auch auf die Popsender der öffentlich-rechtlichen Rundfunkanstalten. Dieser Frage geht vorliegende Diplomarbeit nach, in deren Mittelpunkt Fallstudien über drei öffentlich-rechtliche Popsender stehen, die den Anteil musikjournalistischer Inhalte an deren Gesamtprogramm aufzeigen sollen. Es geht um die Umsetzung der Frage nach der „musikjournalistischen Präsenz“ in den öffentlich-rechtlichen Popwellen in Form dieser Diplomarbeit. Darüber hinaus fließt der Aspekt der Musik als (wichtigstes) Programmelement sowie der Musikprogrammgestaltung als Teilgebiet musikredaktioneller Tätigkeit, mit in diese Arbeit ein.

Business as usual ist vorbei! Das wissen wir längst. Und deshalb gibt es kaum noch Unternehmen, in denen das Thema Change nicht ganz oben auf der Tagesordnung steht. Aber wie nachhaltige Veränderung wirklich funktioniert, das weiß so recht keiner. Dabei gibt es in Zeiten permanenter Disruption nur zwei Alternativen: Wir können auf den Zug des Wandels aufspringen oder wir bleiben am Bahnsteig stehen. Wir können uns entweder verändern oder wir werden vom Markt verschwinden. In seinem Motivations-Manifest versorgt Sie Ilja Grzeskowitz mit dem dazu notwendigen Brainfood. In 77 1/7 inspirierenden Impulsen zeigt er auf, wie es gelingt, eine Change-Kultur zu kreieren, die von Offenheit, Innovation und dem Mut zu neuen Wegen gekennzeichnet ist. Denn nur wenn wir als Persönlichkeit wachsen, können wir bessere Unternehmer, Führungskräfte oder Mitarbeiter werden.
