The European tradition of making bittersweet liqueurs--called amari in Italian--has been around for centuries. But it is only recently that these herbaceous digestifs have moved from the dusty back bar to center stage in the United States, and become a key ingredient on cocktail lists in the country’s best bars and restaurants. Lucky for us, today there is a dizzying range of amaro available—from familiar favorites like Averna and Fernet-Branca, to the growing category of regional, American-made amaro. Amaro is the first book to demystify this ever-expanding, bittersweet world, and a must-have for any home cocktail enthusiast or industry professional. Starting with a rip-roaring tour of bars, cafés, and distilleries in Italy, amaro’s spiritual home, Brad Thomas Parsons—author of the James Beard and IACP Award–winner Bitters—will open your eyes to the rich history and vibrant culture of amaro today. With more than 100 recipes for amaro-centric cocktails, DIY amaro, and even amaro-spiked desserts, you’ll be living (and drinking) la dolce vita.

Corporate finance is the area of finance that studies the determinants of firms' values, including capital structure, financing, and investment decisions. Although there are several excellent texts in corporate finance, this is the first to focus on the theoretical foundations of the subject in a consistent and integrated way at the Ph.D. level. In addition to a textbook for advanced graduate students, it can also serve as a general reference to researchers and sophisticated practitioners. The material presented is carefully selected with an eye to what is essential to understanding the underlying theory, ensuring that this text will remain useful for years to come. The book is divided into three parts. The first section presents the basic principles of valuation based on the absence of arbitrage, including a discussion of the determinants of the optimal capital structure based on the seminal results of Modigliani and Miller. The second section discusses the implications of agency problems and information asymmetries to capital structure, giving particular attention to payout policy and to debt contract design. The concluding portion presents different ways of restructuring capital, including going public, going private using stock repurchases or leveraged buyouts, and mergers and acquisitions. Each chapter includes exercises that vary in difficulty, with suggested solutions provided in an appendix. This book will assuredly be the standard doctoral- and professional-level explication of corporate finance theory and its appropriate applications.

The Crime of Father Amaro by José Maria de Eça de Queirós

The Crime Of Father Amaro
  • Author : José Maria de Eça de Queirós
  • Publisher : New Directions Publishing
  • Release Date : 2003
  • Categories : Fiction
  • ISBN : 0811215326

Eça de Queirós's novelThe Crime of Father Amaro is a lurid satire of clerical corruption in a town in Portugal (Leira) during the period before and after the 1871 Paris Commune. At the start, a priest physically explodes after a fish supper while guests at a birthday celebration are "wildly dancing a polka." Young Father Amaro (whose name means "bitter" in Portuguese) arrives in Leira and soon lusts after--and is lusted after by--budding Amelia, dewy-lipped, devout daughter of Sao Joaneira who has taken in Father Amaro as a lodger. What ensues is a secret love affair amidst a host of compelling minor characters: Canon Dias, glutton and Sao Joaneira's lover; Dona Maria da Assuncao, a wealthy widow with a roomful of religious images, agog at any hint of sex; Joao Eduardo, repressed atheist, free-thinker and suitor to Amelia; Father Brito, "the strongest and most stupid priest in the diocese;" the administrator of the municipal council who spies at a neighbor's wife through binoculars for hours every day. Eça's incisive critique flies like a shattering mirror, jabbing everything from the hypocrisy of a rich and powerful Church, to the provincialism of men and women in Portuguese society of the time, to the ineptness of politics or science as antidotes to the town's ills. What lurks within Eça's narrative is a religion of tolerance, wisdom, and equality nearly forgotten. Margaret Jull Costa has rendered an exquisite translation and provides an informative introduction to a story that truly spans all ages.

En una lucha poco usual con la muerte, y sin que ella se dé cuenta le roba la ficha. Con este acto el anciano esta privado de morir, pues ha adquirido el don de la eternidad. El saber que es eterno lo obligó a meditar profundamente en su actual forma de vida, pero sobre todo, en la forma que él debería de morir. Fue tanto el pesar que el anciano padeció al final de su vida, que parecía que el destino se había vuelto implacablemente hostil, y buscó a la muerte como última alternativa para poner fin a su sufrimiento. E ignorado por la muerte, y revolcándose de dolor se resignó a seguir viviendo. Entonces, él tuvo que aceptar los fenómenos sobrenaturales que acontecían a su alrededor como parte de su vida cotidiana. Y comenzó a ver la figura terrible de la muerte como algo cotidiano y familiar pues debido al don de la eternidad, él pronto se iba a convertir también en muerte, una raza especial de seres que no mueren.

After enduring two broken marriages, a failed suicide attempt, and adulterous affairs, author R. Renee Amaro sets out to discover the true purpose of her life. In August 2000, she pulls up roots in America and spreads her wings across five continents-from Africa to Asia and Europe to Australia. Odd Woman Out: Black Girl Abroad is a fish-out-of-water tale about life outside of the United States as experienced by an African American woman, specifically in Taiwan where Amaro teaches English as a second language. During her adaptation to her new life and her new self, Amaro rises and falls several times but is continually able to pick up the pieces and move on. Through self-love, determination, and a long walk with God, Amaro overcomes her past life of promiscuity, adultery, self-hatred, and fear. From dancing with Zulu warriors and sitting in the prison cell of Nelson Mandela to living, loving, and learning in Taiwan, Odd Woman Out will stimulate thought, provoke change, and challenge the status quo in the minds of individuals-especially young African Americans.

Teohua Minister of Uitzilopochtli god described in twenty-seven chapters the experiences of the soul of an Aztec boy, his education and his training as an assassin Aztec priest in his different reincarnations through time in the Aztec Empire. This story talks about the daily life and bloody festivities of the Aztecs, but mainly describes the abuses committed by the Aztec priests by sacrificing hundreds of thousands of people at the time of Teotihuacan and the great Tenochtitlan. In the Twentieth century and by a twist of fate, this Aztec soul reincarnated in the body of a Mexican child of Jewish descent. The boys' father was one of the wealthiest landowners in the region of the Popocatepetl and Itztaccihuatl volcanoes. On the other hand, the house that belonged to the child's father was built five hundred years before and had been inherited from generation to generation until the twentieth century. The house was constructed with the ruins of an Aztec temple dedicated to Omacatl reptile god, and for the Jewish boy, being born among those ruins tied him a course. Because during the Aztec Empire, children born only inside a temple could be Aztec priests. The reason reincarnation was to continue with the most feared and respected profession of the Aztec Empire, that was to be an assassin Aztec priest. Weeks before the fall of the Aztec Empire, the Aztec chief priests gathered in the Birds' Hall in the house of Emperor Moctezuma II. They had an agreement to keep secret the real existence of their Aztec reptilian gods and continue the sacrifices regardless of the historical era in which the descendants of the Aztecs lived. In that meeting, they promised, continued with the traditions of human sacrifices. Then, it seems that the future of the Jewish boy without being descendent of the Aztec race was marked to be an assassin who was at the services of the Aztec reptilian gods.
