Red Ant House: Stories

Denis Johnson meets Flannery O’Connor in this luminous collection of short stories about the collision of cultures, genders, and generations in the American Southwest. Set mainly amid Indian reservations and uranium mills, these twelve stories create a kaleidoscopic view of family, myth, love, landscape, and loss in a place where infinite skies and endless roads suggest a world of possibility, yet dreams are deceiving, like an oasis, just beyond reach. Whether it’s a young woman pushed quite literally to the edge on a desolate mountain pass, an orphaned brother and sister trying to patch together an existence one stitch at a time, a cop who suspects his kleptomaniac wife is stealing from other people — materially and emotionally — or a wily roadside hypnotist whose alleged power is both wonderful and strange, Ann Cummins’s characters want to transcend the circumstances of their lives, to believe in the eventuality of change.
Again and again, Ann Cummins generates imagery of white-hot intensity and pushes the limits of both the human spirit and the short story form. Gritty, seductive, and always daring, this unforgettable debut collection puts forth a haunting new vision of hope and heartache in contemporary America and confirms the arrival of an important new voice.

Kleptomania: The Compulsion to Steal - What Can Be Done?

The Compulsion to Steal — What Can Be Done?

by Marcus Goldman, M.D.

This groundbreaking book lifts the veil of secrecy from one of the most misunderstood compulsive disorders which drives people to steal objects they don't need and often don't use, for reasons they can't explain. Using research and his own case studies, Dr. Goldman provides insights into this disorder and the many myths that surround it, including the fact that almost 80% of all diagnosed kleptomaniacs are women. Most importantly, he explores treatment options and offers practical, compassionate information that can be found nowhere else.

"A fascinating exploration of a destructive disorder."

What an incredible variety of stories M has written, from scifi to murder mystery to love lit to south asiana. Her voice is fun, wry, smart, even for the stories I didn't care for as much.

Screen image to text - Kleptomania utility

Kleptomania Kleptomania – screen image to text

Kleptomania converts screen image to text. You may OCR text anywhere on the screen, including areas that you cannot highlight with your mouse, such as columns of data from a word processor or error messages from any Windows program.

Getting text from screen: Taken for Granted? With dozens of screen grabbers on the market, we cannot copy part of the screen and paste it as a text. even if it is a text for our human eye. While the eye converts the image to text on the fly, the grabber actually grabs a bunch of pixels. Applications support the copy-pasting for some window areas only. We all use text, much more than graphics, so where is a place on every PC for the utility that copies the uncopyable.

Kleptomania uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology to let you capture image from anywhere on the screen and then convert this image to text. This includes database lists, forms and reports, error messages, dialog boxes, status lines, folder trees and file lists. Kleptomania keeps track of all of your Windows fonts. It can convert to text all areas of your screen. The program can recognize underlined text including web and e-mail addresses. It works well for lines of text containing mixed fonts, font sizes, styles, and colors. Kleptomania can place the captured text onto the clipboard as plain text or Rich Text Format (RTF). You can copy and paste text into any editor or word processor, sum numbers in a column of copied data, count the number of words and characters that you’ve highlighted, and discover the properties of the font that is on your screen: font face, size and color (RGB).

History Decoded: The Ten Greatest Conspiracies of All Time, ISBN 9780761177456 - Better Read Than Dead Bookstore Newtown

History Decoded: The Ten Greatest Conspiracies of All Time
Overview

Everyone loves a good mystery. And the only thing people love more than a good mystery? A real mystery. History Decoded, based on the popular History Channel show Brad Meltzer's Decoded, explores history's ten greatest conspiracies. In each chapter, a famous historical mystery will be explored in depth - like 'Was Lincoln's Assassin Apprehended?' Unanswered Questions of the Kennedy Assassination, 'The Spear of Destiny', 'Lost Confederate Gold', UFO's' and 'Da Vinci' among others. Sometimes the mystery proves to be true, sometimes a hoax-and sometimes not quite provable. Each chapter is profusely illustrated in colour and includes an envelope containing removable facsimile documents (like John Wilkes Booth's alleged unsigned will!)-all keys to unravelling the mystery in question.

Online Etymology Dictionary

kleptomania (n.) also cleptomania. 1830, formed from mania + Greek kleptes "thief, a cheater," from kleptein "to steal, act secretly," from PIE *klep- "to steal," an extention of root *kel- (2) "to cover, conceal" (see cell ; cognate with Latin clepere "to steal, listen secretly to," Old Prussian au-klipts "hidden," Old Church Slavonic poklopu "cover, wrapping," Gothic hlifan "to steal," hliftus "thief"). Much-derided 19c. as a fancy term for old-fashioned thievery and an opportunity for the privileged to claim a psychological motive for criminal misbehavior. There is a popular belief that some of the criminal laws under which the poor are rigorously punished are susceptible of remarkable elasticity when the peccadilloes of the rich are brought under judgment, and that there is some truth in the old adage which declares that "one man may steal a horse where another dare not look over the hedge." This unwholesome distrust is not likely to diminish if, in cases of criminal prosecutions where so-called respectable persons commit theft without sufficiently obvious motive for the act, they have their crime extenuated on the plea of kleptomania, as has recently occurred in several notable instances. ["Kleptomania," "The Lancet," Nov. 16, 1861]
