Noel Coward's celebration of the strength and humour of the British working class in times of crisis struck a resounding impact with viewing audiences when first released, and still does to this day. Chronicling the trials and tribulations of the Gibbons family from the end of World War One, Coward's anthem to British resilience became the most successful film of 1944. This Happy Breed was David Lean's first credit as a solo director and was the first in a succession of worldwide hits for him and his distinctive visual style. Both Robert Newton and Celia Johnson preside over the ups and downs of their family with great humour and patience, ably supported by John Mills and Stanley Holloway. This is a High Definition digital restoration from the original film elements.
Ian Carmichael and Janette Scott star in this sparkling, utterly irresistible romantic comedy – a major project for Roy Boulting, who with twin brother John formed one of post-war Britain's most successful and influential film partnerships. Also featuring comedy greats Terry-Thomas, Joyce Grenfell, Irene Handl and John Le Mesurier, Happy Is the Bride is featured in a brand-new transfer from original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio. David proposes to Janet in the middle of a cricket match, a prospect less-than-enthusiastically received by Janet's prosperous father. The thought of his daughter's marriage to a young man of unimpressive means and hazy future is accepted with dubious grace, and the two lovebirds find romance being replaced by a regiment of interfering relatives!

In an early lead role, Robert Newton stars in a compelling murder melodrama charting a struggling novelist's desperate bid to start life anew - in a dead man's clothes... Released in 1939, Dead Men Are Dangerous captures the richly talented British stage star at a point of transition, as West End acclaim gave way to burgeoning film success; Newton's pre-War achievements would be consolidated with iconic portrayals of Bill Sikes and Long John Silver in the 1940s and '50s. This rare, London-set thriller is presented here in a brand-new digital transfer from the original film elements. Aylmer Franklyn, an unsuccessful writer saddled with debts, seizes the chance to change his identity after discovering a corpse under a fallen branch. Faking his own death, he swaps his clothes for those of the dead man, and even attends his own inquest. But the events that result make him only too happy to resume his own identity...

The largest and most detailed Total War: THREE KINGDOMS DLC to dateBegin a campaign in 182 CE just before the Yellow Turban rebellion……Then play through the conflict and deep into the Three Kingdoms periodNew characters and six new playable warlords including the Zhang brothers and Emperor LingUnique new campaign mechanics, events and objectives40 new battlefield units and new unit abilitiesPlay the origin stories of legendary characters such as Cao Cao and Liu BeiThe year is 182CE. The Han Empire is in turmoil, and China is slipping towards chaos. The Emperor’s court is paralysed by corruption, and a great famine has ravaged the north. In the eyes of the people, Emperor Ling has lost the Mandate of Heaven – and with it, the right to rule.Across the land, the people band together in opposition. Led by the three Taoist brothers Zhang Jue, Zhang Liang and Zhang Bao, they don yellow turbans and take up arms. Their aim: to tear down the unjust Han and replace it with their own dynasty of harmony and peace. They are thousands strong, with more flocking to their cause by the day.Warlords sworn to the emperor rally to his banner; warriors of great influence and fierce ability. Yet the wiser, more ambitious of them harbour their own desires… if the Han becomes too weak, who then will take the reins of power?The Total War: THREE KINGDOMS – Mandate of Heaven Chapter Pack depicts the events of the Yellow Turban Rebellion, enabling players to engage in the conflict from either rebel or loyalist perspectives. Introducing a number of new characters and playable faction leaders, the campaign begins in 182CE, but players can choose to continue well into the Three Kingdoms period, with familiar characters entering the campaign as the timeline progresses.The Han DynastyAs part of the free Total War: THREE KINGDOMS game update for all players which activates when Mandate of Heaven launches, Han Chinese factions may adopt the new Empire government style (Emperor Ling of course has this from the outset of the campaign).The Emperor and his allies are in an alliance where the Emperor holds total power. The Emperor has mandated powers to prevent his allies from voting on diplomatic deals such as war and peace. However, as this is effectively an abuse of power, such actions may cause schisms in the alliance…In Mandate of Heaven, Liu Hong (Emperor Ling) has a unique form of this Empire government style, in that he must request these mandated powers from his imperial allies in order to battle the Yellow Turban threat. In addition, he may also construct the Imperial Palace, a grand undertaking in both time and resources, which delivers powerful factionwide bonuses to the Emperor, and houses the single most powerful garrison in the game!Victory ConditionsThe victory conditions of all Han factions match those of the 190CE campaign. Timing in this period is crucial however, given the power-blocs in play. It’s very much about picking your moment to start your race for the throne and finding rebel-held commanderies to attack opportunistically. The only exception is Liu Hong (Emperor Ling), whose victory conditions will change depending on how he reforms his government.Han FactionsLiu Hong (Emperor Ling)Liu Hong is Emperor of the Han Empire, and presides over a swiftly deteriorating situation. Rebellions are rising and there is discontent amongst his own vassal warlords. His court is controlled by corrupt and self-serving eunuchs who are quick to silence any who question them. The formidable Empress, his wife, fights tooth-and-nail against the eunuchs’ power-grab, but her efforts are hindered by the Emperor's inaction. The vast Han vassal lands are Liu Hong’s to maintain, but the situation is rapidly falling apart, and controlling all of them may be impossible as discontent and open warfare erupt…Unique Faction Mechanic: The Imperial CourtWithin the Imperial Court, three factions vie for supremacy.The Bureaucrats: Led by the eunuchs, their supporters seek to centralise power into the hands of the politicians.The Warlords: Supporters of this group seek a decentralised government where each local leader controls their own lands, answering only to the emperor.The Dynasts: This group seeks all power to come from the imperial family itself.The Emperor sits in the middle, trying to balance these power blocks. He can wield his Political Influence to enact changes within a court that has been all but crippled by the eunuchs’ power-grab…Political influence grows over time and is generated by administrative court buildings within the player’s major settlementsPolitical influence can be used to remove corrupt ministers from the courtVery high levels of political influence can be expended to annex entire factions within the Empire.Liu ChongLiu Chong is the Emperor's kin, but not heir to the throne. Unlike his family, he is happy to focus on managing his land. The people he governs love him, due to a combination of his own bold personality and his skill in battle. He is determined to make his holdings a place of peace and prosperity for any and all who wish to seek haven there. He feels confident that his imperial kin will get the situation under control, and whilst he will defend them, he is more concerned with keeping his people and his territory safe. Owners of Mandate of Heaven will also be able to begin a campaign in 190 CE as Liu Chong, and his historical conflict with Yuan Shu.Unique resource: FortitudeLiu Chong has a unique resource called fortitude. This rises as he fights battles, and confers a suite of increasingly powerful military bonuses for his troops.Unique Faction Mechanic: TrophiesBy achieving a proscribed series of feats in battle, Liu Chong can unlock trophies which grant unique bonus effects. Liu Chong can choose a limited set of trophies to display in order to gain these bonuses.Lu ZhiOne of the most preeminent scholars of the Han Dynasty, Lu Zhi made a name for himself as an excellent teacher, with such students as Liu Bei and Gongsun Zan studying under him. He was a pivotal figure during the Yellow Turban rebellion, leading many successful assaults against the rebels. While a master of scholarship and the sword, he was less prepared to compete with the Eunuchs.Unique Faction Mechanic: The Great LibraryBy achieving a prescribed series of civic feats, Lu Zhi can collect a range of unique works to populate the library. Up to five works can be displayed at any one time with each work offering unique bonuses. Some works belong to sets and offer further bonuses if displayed together.Yellow Turban RebellionUnique MechanicsThe three Zhang brothers, architects of the Yellow Turban Rebellion, each get unique missions to energise the movement. Some of these missions will improve their own factions, whilst others will enhance their allies. A few missions may even bring you into contact with faces old and new...Unique resources and effects: Zeal and FervourZeal represents the flames of rebellion, which must be stoked for the rebellion to succeed. This resource is shared across all three Zhang brothers’ factions, but depletes over time. As Zeal falls, the rebellion can falter, causing your counties to rise up in favour of the Han cause. Zeal is maintained by capturing counties and fighting battles.Fervour represents the rising support of the common people for the rebellion, and the growing instability this causes the Han. Fervour increases in a region due to the presence of Yellow Turbans forces and buildings, causing increasingly punitive public order penalties for Han factions. At high levels, fervour begins to cross boundaries and affect adjacent regions. Han factions can mitigate the Yellow Turbans’ Fervour by improving their public order infrastructure and capturing nearby Yellow Turbans counties.Victory ConditionsAll followers of the Way of Supreme Peace are united in a common goal: overthrowing the Han Empire. The flames of rebellion will not be quenched until this goal is achieved!Some turns into the campaign the Mandate War will commence in earnest, driving the Yellow Turbans and the Han into relentless conflict. Victory in this war is the ultimate victory for the Yellow Turbans, and they must capture 50 regions or Luoyang itself.ReformsAll Yellow Turban factions have access to the new Yellow Turbans reforms tree. The tree contains four major branches, reflecting:Infrastructure & EconomyPhilosophy & TradeMilitary PowerMilitary DoctrinesYellow Turbans FactionsZhang JueA renowned healer in his native Julu commandery, Zhang Jue is known as the General of Heaven. His discovery of the Scriptures of Great Peace, detailing the connection between heaven and earth, have set him on the path to raising a righteous rebellion against the corrupt Han Dynasty. Zhang Jue has mustered his brothers and their followers to his cause and sparked a flame in the hearts of the people.Zhang LiangZhang Liang, the General of the People, is an artisan of defensive strategies. As such, his aim is to build an impregnable defence against the Han as they attempt to stamp out the rebellion. In fact, the Han warlord Lu Zhi has been dispatched with precisely this directive, and Zhang Liang has been tasked with defending against him. The result of this clash could dramatically shift the balance of power!Zhang BaoKnown as the General of the Land, Zhang Bao hones naked aggression into a force for change. He forms the spear-tip of the rebellion, hurling himself boldly into the fray. He seeks to rapidly expand the rebels' sphere of influence and is in the best position to achieve this.Other Factions also playable in Mandate of HeavenYou can also play this campaign from the perspective of several notable Three Kingdoms characters, each of whom has unique start-positions and missions reflecting their early (and in one case, deeply humble!) beginnings:Cao CaoLiu BeiSun JianDong ZhuoNew campaign features:Regionless RecruitmentIn the Mandate campaign, a faction’s armies may now recruit troops when in non-hostile territory, even if they own no regions. Units and retinues may be recruited, but new armies may not be formed.Emergent AI factionsAs time passes in the Mandate of Heaven campaign, notable factions from the 190 CE campaign will begin to emerge according to key historical conditions. For example, Yuan Shao may appear, but only if The Emperor is deposed, while Zheng Jiang will begin to terrorise the northern Commanderies around 189 CE.New battlefield units (highlights)With 40 new units available, playable factions get a range of new options for recruitment. Here you’ll find a list of some of the most notable elite units.Han EmpireImperial Conscripts (Liu Hong)The elite Imperial Army of the Han Empire, these units represent all five elements of the Wu Xing, and are all heavily armoured. All Imperial units have a unique ability granting them increasing armour and damage bonuses while fighting as long as another Imperial unit is nearby.Chen Peacekeepers (Liu Chong)The finest melee cavalry of Prince Liu Chong’s army, clad in heavy golden armour and also armed with crossbows.Chen Royal Guard (Liu Chong)Heavily armoured Crossbow Infantry, ready to switch to shield and spear in defence of their emperor.Destroyer of Traitors (Lu Zhi)A very effective Shock Cavalry unit with splash-damage attacks.Yellow TurbansMessengers of Heaven (Zhang Jue)Zhang Jue's messengers bear forth his prophecies and instructions. These very fast, unarmoured, fear-causing melee cavalry have good morale and are Ideal for chasing missile infantry down, killing them swiftly and moving on before others arrive.Zealots of the Way (Zhang Bao)Zhang Bao’s all-purpose infantry, equipped with two-handed polearms. Their unique ability improves their combat prowess over time at the front of the unit, though they become more vulnerable to the flanks and rear.Yaoguai Hunters (Zhang Bao)Zhang Bao’s Archers, armed with poisoned arrows. They can be deployed outside of the regular deployment zone before battle commences, and can only be detected from up close. They are deadly while they remain hidden, but the enemy must be kept at arm’s length as they will fall swiftly in melee.Tyrant Slayers (Zhang Liang)Zhang Liang’s Shock Cavalry, they have a very hard-hitting charge, and a unique damage bonus when fighting heroes and generals.

If this is the picture that represents your life, then it is time to enact an alternative to the repeated efforts of trying to make him or her quit this behavior. What if it were possible to alter your reaction to your loved one's drinking? Thus, by doing so, you made it a more positive experience to skip the drinking altogether? That being said, the final outcome could be no drink, no complaining, no ensuing arguments and the quality of life could be far greater.

It was a time and a place when a boy of imagination seeking glory [and I was such a boy] could spin a summer of stolen freedoms into such high jinks, such high adventure that such a boy might be in danger of losing some vital part of himself when he cut the strings and moved on. Over the years, I have revisited that magic summer in stops and starts, shared it with friends, then again with my children, then again with my grandchildren. Shook out a sleeve. Emptied some pocket of its boyhood treasures. Anecdotes. Patches. Now something in me wants to see that ragged coat whole against the sky, like some renegade kite caught in a whip of a Kansas wind.

Darius Jax is a senior officer and hero of the Marine Corps, veteran of countless battles fought throughout occupied space.

The fighting on Tombstone is brutal and deadly, and Jax must find his inner strength if he is to survive. As he struggles through an unwinnable war he learns to rely on himself as he never has before, and he begins to understand just what he is - and is not - fighting for. Tombstone is a novella of approximately 24,000 words, and prequel to the best-selling Crimson Worlds series, set in the years just before the Third Frontier War and the events described in Crimson Worlds Book I: Marines.

Ike was in the White House. The world was as sensible as Pat Nixon's cloth coat. It was the '50s, and every teen was a Wally Cleaver or a Betty Anderson. Then something happened. Those submissive students of Miss Brooks and Mr. Peepers became rowdy rebels. Ed Sullivan had to dump the opera stars and Chinese acrobats and give them Elvis. What caused the change? Rock-'n'-roll and the men who brought it over the airwaves into homes and cars. In The Pied Pipers of Rock 'n' Roll, Wes Smith examines the phenomenon of the AM deejays who captivated a generation and helped define the counterculture that has forever changed the landscape of American youth. Broadcasting on signals that often reached across half the continent, these men - Alan Freed, Dick Biondi, Hunter Hancock, Zenas Sears, Jocko Henderson, John R. Richbourg, Gene Nobles, Hoss Allen, and Wolfman Jack - developed followings as devoted as those of the stars whose records they played. Their loyal listeners would lie in darkened bedrooms for hours each night, transported from rural isolation, urban frustration, adolescent awkwardness to a place spun from the heady power of music and mesmerizing deejay lingo. Wally greased his hair, Betty started smoking, and Woodstock was only a decade away. Smith takes a close look at nine of the men who made this happen and explores the reasons for their influence and its lasting effects on the generation whose lives still unfold to the soundtrack laid down by these platter-spinners of their youth.

With colorful stories and sometimes frightening anecdotes, Dr. Thomas Dormandy describes a checkered progression of breakthroughs, haphazard experiments, ignorant attitudes, and surprising developments in human efforts to control pain. Attitudes toward pain and its perception have changed, as have the means of pain relief and scientific understanding. Dr. Dormandy offers a thoroughly fascinating, multicultural history that culminates with a discussion of today's successes - and failures - in the struggle against pain. The book's exploration is fused with accounts of the development of specific methods of pain relief, including the use of alcohol, plants, hypnosis, religious faith, stoic attitudes, local anesthesia, general anesthesia, and modern analgesics. Dr. Dormandy also looks at the most recent advances in pain clinics and palliative care for patients with terminal disease, as well as the prospects for loosening pain's grip in the future.

Studies find only a weak relationship between public school funding and educational outcomes. In The Money Myth, W. Norton Grubb proposes a powerful paradigm shift in the way we think about why some schools thrive and others fail. The greatest inequalities in America's schools lie in factors other than fiscal support. Fundamental differences in resources other than money - for example, in leadership, instruction, and tracking policies - explain the deepening divide in the success of our nation's schoolchildren. The Money Myth establishes several principles for a bold new approach to education reform. Drawing on a national longitudinal dataset collected over 12 years, Grubb makes a crucial distinction between simple" resources and those "compound", "complex", and "abstract" resources that cannot be readily bought. Money can buy simple resources - such as higher teacher salaries and smaller class sizes - but these resources are actually some of the weakest predictors of educational outcomes. On the other hand, complex resources pertaining to school practices are astonishingly strong predictors of success. Grubb finds that tracking policies have the most profound and consistent impact on student outcomes over time. Schools often relegate low-performing students - particularly minorities - to vocational, remedial, and special education tracks. So even in well-funded schools, resources may never reach the students who need them most. Grubb also finds that innovation in the classroom has a critical impact on student success. Here, too, America's schools are stratified. Teachers in underperforming schools tend to devote significant amounts of time to administration and discipline, while instructors in highly ranked schools dedicate the bulk of their time to "engaged learning" using varied pedagogical approaches. Effective schools distribute leadership among many instructors and administ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Elsie Escobar.

The first biography in English of the Japanese artist who was a central figure in the dazzling artistic milieu of 1920s Paris When we think of expatriates in Paris during the early decades of the twentieth century, certain names come to mind: Hemingway, Picasso, Modigliani--and Foujita, the Japanese artist whose distinctive works, bringing elements of Japanese art to Western oil painting, made him a major cultural figure in 1920s Montparnasse. Foujita was the only Japanese artist to be considered part of the 'School of Paris,' which also counted among its members such prominent artists as Picasso and Modigliani. Noteworthy, too, was Foujita's personal style, flamboyant even for those flamboyant times. He was best known for his drawings of female nudes and cats, and for his special white color upon which he could draw a masterful line--one that seemed to outline a woman's whole body in a single unbroken stroke. With the advent of the Second World War, Foujita returned to Japan, where he allied himself with the ruling Japanese mili-tarists and painted canvases in support of the war effort. After Japan's defeat, he was scorned for his devotion to the military cause and returned to France, where he remained until his death in 1968. Acclaimed writer and translator Phyllis Birnbaum not only explores Foujita's fascinating, tumultuous life but also assesses the appeal of his paintings, which, in their mixture of Eastern and Western traditions, are memorable for their vibrancy of form and purity of line. Phyllis Birnbaum is a novelist, biographer, journalist, and translator. Her work has appeared in 'The New Yorker,' 'The Times Literary Supplement,' and other publications. 'Modern Girls, Shining Stars, the Skies of Tokyo: Five Japanese Women' is a collection of her biographical essays. She lives near Boston.
