SUMMARY:

"Delicious . . . richly riveting . . . The Vacationers offers all the delights of a fluffy, read-it-with-sunglasses-on-the-beach read, made substantial by the exceptional wit, insight, intelligence and talents of its author.”—People (four stars) An irresistible, deftly observed novel from the New York Times-bestselling author of Modern Lovers, about the secrets, joys, and jealousies that rise to the surface over the course of an American family’s two-week stay in Mallorca. For the Posts, a two-week trip to the Balearic island of Mallorca with their extended family and friends is a celebration: Franny and Jim are observing their thirty-fifth wedding anniversary, and their daughter, Sylvia, has graduated from high school. The sunlit island, its mountains and beaches, its tapas and tennis courts, also promise an escape from the tensions simmering at home in Manhattan. But all does not go according to plan: over the course of the vacation, secrets come to light, old and new humiliations are experienced, childhood rivalries resurface, and ancient wounds are exacerbated. This is a story of the sides of ourselves that we choose to show and those we try to conceal, of the ways we tear each other down and build each other up again, and the bonds that ultimately hold us together. With wry humor and tremendous heart, Emma Straub delivers a richly satisfying story of a family in the midst of a maelstrom of change, emerging irrevocably altered yet whole.

Vacation Decision Making

Vacation Decision Making

Download

SUMMARY:

The focus of this book is on holiday planning and decision making, which is the cornerstone of tourist behaviour and tourism marketing. The first three chapters deal with the basics, including an overview of decision-making paradigms and variables (chapter 1), a critical review of existing tourist behaviour models (chapter 2) and a description of the methods that may be used for studying holiday decision making (chapter 3). The chapters that follow relate the findings of an in-depth qualitative and interpretative study that followed the decision making process of 25 Belgian households during a whole year. Chapter 4 discusses the context in which holiday decisions are made. In the next two chapters, the focus is on the decision-making process in itself both at the generic and holiday levels (chapter 5) and at the destination level (chapter 6). Post-experience processes are investigated in chapter 7, whereas group processes are the particular focus of chapter 8. Chapter 9 presents the integrative and conclusive part of the book where a new typology of holidaymakers is proposed. The book has a subject index.

Join Stormy the Cat Along With Christie Jamieson and Quinn Armstrong on Their First Three Mysteries in Vancouver, British Columbia Stormy the Cat has a secret . . . BOOK 1: The Cat Came Back - Young mother Christy Jamieson just learned her husband, Frank, embezzled his trust fund, sold their Vancouver mansion, and ran off with a socialite. Worse, Frank's trustees are telling Christy to let them handle it. But they aren't doing anything, and Frank's enemies are coming after her and her daughter. Desperate to find Frank and fend off his enemies, Christy asks Quinn for help. His price: the dirt on Frank. But the closer Christy and Quinn get to the dangerous truth, the more convinced they become that only the one who knows where Frank is at, is Stormy the Cat. BOOK 2: The Cat's Paw - Christy Jamieson has just confronted the person who murdered her husband Frank, when Frank's wealthy Aunt Ellen arrives unexpectedly, suitcase in-hand. Ellen's home has become a crime scene and she intends to stay with Christy. No one is happy, but the most furious member of the Jamieson household is Stormy the Cat. Wanting the woman out of her hair, Christy investigates with journalist-friend Quinn, only to discover the body on Aunt Ellen's terrace was the woman who alibied the person complicit in Frank's murder. But the deeper Christy and Quinn dig into the connection between the dead woman and Aunt Ellen, the clearer it becomes that the only one who can unravel the truth is Stormy the Cat. BOOK 3: Cat Got Your Tongue - When the rock concert Christy and Quinn are enjoying ends in a murder, the sleuthing couple are pulled into the case. Hot on the trail of a primary suspect, they discover the band's manager has also been found dead. Are the two murders connected, or are there two killers? Unfortunately, the only eye-witness--Stormy the Cat--is holding his tongue.

During that time, he created a family pecking order that left Louise on top and her youngest child on the bottom (just below the guinea pig), regularly tried to eat all his sister’s food (he was a very large cat), and learned the joys of travel through a cross continent road trip. The 9 Lives Cozy Mystery Series—as well as the single title mystery, A Recipe For Trouble, are all set in her hometown of Vancouver, British Columbia.

SUMMARY:

A self-contained text for an introductory course, this volume places strong emphasis on physical applications. Key elements of differential equations and linear algebra are introduced early and are consistently referenced, all theorems are proved using elementary methods, and numerous worked-out examples appear throughout. The highly readable text approaches calculus from the student's viewpoint and points out potential stumbling blocks before they develop. A collection of more than 1,600 problems ranges from exercise material to exploration of new points of theory — many of the answers are found at the end of the book; some of them worked out fully so that the entire process can be followed. This well-organized, unified text is copiously illustrated, amply cross-referenced, and fully indexed.
