This volume explores linguistic identity construction across online and offline contexts. The contributors focus on ‘clusivity’ as an overarching aspect and offer a multifaceted operationalisation of the linguistic processes of identity construction. The studies address three major strands of human identity, each of which can be thought of as an aggregative abstraction with its own complexities: personal identity, group identity and collective identity. The contributions pay special attention to the interplay between the public and private dimensions of the interactions and audiences, as well as the potential impact of social and technical affordances of different communicative settings and online and offline modes of identity construction. The volume is aimed at all researchers concerned with the complex notion of identity, both in linguistics and in neighbouring disciplines.

At some point in their lives, millions of people have waited tables. And many remain haunted by nightmare scenarios where they are the sole server in a packed restaurant. For all those disenchanted current and former food service employees, Darron Cardosa (a.k.a. the Bitchy Waiter) has your back. Since 2008 he s vented his frustrations about everything from entitled has-beens to what "really" goes on in that fancy restaurant in a popular blog. A snarky mix of Sedaris, Bourdain, Bombeck, and Mo Rocca, Cardosa distills 30 years of food service into dark, funny tales that anyone who worked in the industry will relate to."

Three years after giving up drink, Jowita Bydlowska found herself throwing back a glass of champagne like it was ginger ale. "It's a special occasion," she said to her boyfriend. And indeed it was. It was a party celebrating the birth of their first child. It also marked Jowita's immediate, full-blown return to alcoholism and all that entails for a new mother who is at first determined to keep her problem a secret. Her trips to liquor stores are in-and-out missions. Perhaps she's being paranoid, but she thinks people tend to notice the stroller. Walking home, she stays behind buildings, in alleyways, taking discreet sips from a bottle she's stored in the diaper bag. She know she's become a villain: a mother who drinks; a mother who endangers her child. She drinks to forget this. And then the trouble really starts. Jowita Bydlowska's memoir of her relapse into addiction is an extraordinary achievement. The writing is raw and immediate. It places you in the moment--saddened, appalled, nerve-wracked, but never able to look away or stop turning the pages. With brutal honesty, Bydlowska takes us through the binges and blackouts, the self-deception and less successful attempts to deceive others, the humiliations and extraordinary risk-taking. She shines a light on the endless hunger of wanting just one more drink, and one more again, while dealing with motherhood, anxiety, depression--and rehab. Her struggle to regain her sobriety is recorded in the same unsentimental, unsparing, sometimes grimly comic way. But the happy outcome is evidenced by the existence of this brilliant book: she has lived to tell the tale.

An incendiary work of science journalism debunking the myths that dominate the American diet and showing readers how to stop feeling guilty and start loving their food again—sure to ignite controversy over our obsession with what it means to eat right. FREE YOURSELF FROM ANXIETY ABOUT WHAT YOU EAT Gluten. Salt. Sugar. Fat. These are the villains of the American diet—or so a host of doctors and nutritionists would have you believe. But the science is far from settled and we are racing to eliminate wheat and corn syrup from our diets because we’ve been lied to. The truth is that almost all of us can put the buns back on our burgers and be just fine. Remember when butter was the enemy? Now it’s good for you. You may have lived through times when the Atkins Diet was good, then bad, then good again; you may have wondered why all your friends cut down on salt or went Paleo; and you might even be thinking about cutting out wheat products from your own diet. For readers suffering from dietary whiplash, The Gluten Lie is the answer. Scientists and physicians know shockingly little about proper nutrition that they didn’t know a thousand years ago, even though Americans spend billions of dollars and countless hours obsessing over “eating right.” In this groundbreaking work, Alan Levinovitz takes on bestselling physicians and dietitians, exposing the myths behind how we come to believe which foods are good and which are bad—and pointing the way to a truly healthful life, free from anxiety about what we eat.

The phone call begins before we touch a phone. It begins before the prospect lands on a vehicle. Before we write up a prospect and before the prospect leaves. At the point when the prospect first eyeballs a vehicle on our lot, finds his strength to pull off the roadway, builds up his courage to approach a window sticker, this is when we start our phone call. It begins within our introduction. We plant seeds before we sow them. It is during the handshake that the prospectâÂÂs walls are strongest. They come up to us, or we approach them, and they have their preconceived thoughts of what we are about to do. It is this time when we need to begin to plan where we will be at the end of this deal. Hopefully, we plan to become a friend. We want to know our new friend and sell him every car he will ever buy. We want him to rely on us for his automotive needs. There is no point in selling him only one car. Our relationship will begin with us giving ground to get ground.

A 1975 classic, this highly readable, in-depth study examines a familiar female role in contemporary American society. The authors apply fieldwork methods to the study of social behavior in a college baras viewed from the perspective of cocktail waitresses. They describe in detail the day-to-day lives of women and the meaning of work for women in a mans world. Not a feminist tract, their book provides a wealth of empirical data on the nature of being female in our culture. The Cocktail Waitress examines female/male relationships as well as patterns of male dominance in social interaction, and shows how these are linked to more general issues in anthropology. The work teaches important social science concepts while always dealing with the college students own world. Its objective presentation of the waitress casts light on significant social issues and the role of women in todays society, together with the manner in which female-male roles are interlocked.

Axe doesn’t suffer from addiction. He relishes it. Ever since an open heart surgery tested his metal, everyday challenges just haven’t been enough. Despite living the good life in Texas, his girlfriend, Sunshine, knows as well as he does that no matter how happy Axe might be, he’ll always have demons inside to battle. He trades his current ride, the Goat, for its steroid-pumped younger cousin, the Cadillaxe. After equipping the triple black beauty with mirror-mounted radar detection and thermal vision, he takes a test run to Colorado and back. Next he finishes building the most exotic chopper of his career and rides this chrome steed to Daytona Beach. But neither of these vehicles or trips are enough for his insatiable need for adrenaline. Finally, the idea of riding his BMW S1000RR motorcycle from the Pacific to the Atlantic consumes his twisted mind. Axe prepares by modifying the BMW, installing the latest gadgetry, and training. Eventually, brains pass the torch to balls as it becomes clear the task is not intended for the weak or sensible. Through pure determination, the leather-clad biker shatters the record for the fastest motorcycle ride across America.
