FUNDAMENTALS OF PUBLIC INTERNATIONAL LAW

The author acknowledges the realistic approaching of the legal rule as guidance and mandate, but also the weakness of its structure and content regarding its mandatory fulfillment. He is separated from the utopic point of view and does not fall for the cynical attitude of the irrational power in the world. It is observed in his proposals the balance between the weakness and strength of International Law into the pursuit of individuals and nations in a new world order, based on liberty and justice not only in the national community but also in the world system.
Nowadays, the world has experienced major changes in the legal structure of Public International Law. In fact, when it comes to the internal laws of each State, those changes rise themselves indirectly as a result of an internal legislative body. On the other hand, the situation is different about Public International Law, since the influence of major changes creates new points of view on the political, economic, geographic and cultural matter, which are transferred to the legal international structure.

THE MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS OF PROGRESSIVE ROCK

Using the theme of musical instruments as a conducting thread, Gerard Bassols takes us on a journey through the history of progressive rock and shares with us a multitude of anecdotes and curiosities, both of the instruments themselves and of the bands and musicians of the genre, and of the music they have left us for posterity. From the birth of the Mellotron in 1962 to the most recent keyboard instruments, from the beginnings of solid-body guitars to carbon-fibre ones, passing through drums and percussions, harps, saxes and sound effects, Bassols makes an exhaustive review of all the musical instruments of the modern history of rock music, and especially of those profusely used by the most legendary progressive rock bands like King Crimson, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Yes, Genesis, Rush, Pink Floyd, Dream Theater and many more. With more than 500 photographs and illustrations, this is a unique work of its kind, without a doubt the most comprehensive treatise ever published about rock musical instruments. Bassols achieves a perfect balance by deepening on the topics he touches, but always in an accessible language, so this book will undoubtedly be liked by both professional and amateur musicians, as well as rock music enthusiasts, without having to have any previous knowledge of music theory or technology.

SURELY THERE IS AN END

SURELY THERE IS AN END

Do you know those problems in your life have an expiration date? Have you ever experienced a problem and wondered when it will come to an end? Do you find yourself dealing with complex situations you feel inadequate or incapacitated to solve? You are not alone. Everyone has felt this way at some point in life. However, remember the will of God for mankind has always been a good and perfect one. The story of creation in Genesis chapter 1 and 2; and the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ (through Him, we have redemption, restoration, and salvation for our souls) are testaments to God?s perfect will for mankind. Everyone who receives the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ will still deal with problems on earth. Nevertheless, those problems can no longer overcome them because God has printed expiration dates on all the problems they will ever deal with. Jesus has provided an escape route to all those who put their trust in Him. Yes, as a child of God you will go through problems but God will be by your side to walk you through them, so that they do not overwhelm you; so that they do not prevent you from reaching your destiny (Isaiah 43:1-2). Surely there is an End presents God?s heart concerning you in times of trouble. It points you to God?s incomparable promises for your life. I pray it will empower you to face troubles with a champion attitude knowing that in Christ Jesus, you are ?more than a conqueror? (Romans 8:37)

THE RETURN OF THE MENORAH

THE RETURN OF THE MENORAH

In the year 70 A.D., after destroying Jerusalem and its temple, Emperor Vespasian and his Roman army stole the menorah and the rest of the temple?s treasures. Immediately after this war, Vespasian started construction of the Colosseum of Rome and issued a series of gold coins, aurei, with his image on the front and the image of a captured woman, representing Palestine, and the inscription Judea Capta on the back. Recently, a marble plaque was discovered, buried next to the walls of the Colosseum of Rome, with the following words written in Latin: This great building was financed by the spoils of the war with Palestine. With great certainty, this shows us that Emperor Vespasian used the gold of the menorah and the rest of the treasures from the Temple in Jerusalem to mint gold coins, aurei, with his image and the inscription Judea Capta, to commemorate his victory over Palestine. In this historical fiction novel, the museum in Jerusalem, with the help of a wise rabbi and the country?s authorities, began a worldwide search to purchase these Vespasian coins with the inscription Judea Capta to return the menorah with its gold from Israel?s history to Jerusalem. The recovery of the menorah, with its original gold, and the destruction of Vespasian?s images, which were on the coins, would fulfil ancient prophecies about the menorah?s return and the destruction of the emperor?s images.

THE WOMAN GOD USES

THE WOMAN GOD USES

When I say the woman God uses, I am referring to every woman in every domain of life that has allowed God to use her in any capacity. I am referring to the woman who has yielded her life to God and is allowing Him, to reach out to others through her. Every day, The Almighty God uses women irrespective of their age, profession, race, education, marital status and social background to fulfil His divine purpose. God used fallen women like Rahab to hide and protect His servants from death. Who, in return received protection for her entire family thereafter. Possessed women like Mary Magdalene received deliverance and ministered to Jesus and His disciples. Humble women like the slave girl in Naaman?s household became instrumental to introducing the God of Israel to her masters. An encounter that ultimately led to the healing of Naaman?s leprosy and the salvation of his entire family. God used royal women like Queen Esther to bring about great deliverance to His people, Israel. As you ponder over the pages of this book, I encourage you to open your heart to receive from the Lord. Allow Him to minister to you and grant you deeper understanding and revelation of your relevance in His kingdom. I pray that your vision be broadened, your strength multiplied, and your zeal inspired to walk in the path of your calling. I also pray this book will inspire you to take up new responsibilities for the advancement of the kingdom of God. Our Lord and Master, Who has called you, will empower you to fulfl His purpose in Jesus Name. Amen!

UNIVERSAL THEORY OF LIFE

UNIVERSAL THEORY OF LIFE

It is time for human beings to awaken from their unconsciousness. It is time for each human being to recognize, understand and accept the Truth?your own Truth. The Truth that you carry from birth to death?this Truth that everyone suspects and intuits, but that nobody dares to say or accept because our brains are conditioned to not accept or recognize it. Every human being is a Divine Being?a God as well a creator. The human being possesses and uses his or her divine qualities every moment, but is not fully aware of the responsibility that this implies. As a result, we live in a chaotic world. Universal Theory of Life offers you the opportunity to understand and accept this great Truth. In its pages you will be able to understand how your mind and brain have been shaped from birth so that you ca not recognize the Truth. And you will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free.” “Roberto Riviera”s examination of the most fundamental concepts embraced by religious doctrine provides a courageous inquiry worthy of consideration by us all.” Traci Medford-Rosow, USAToday bestselling author of Unblinded: One Man”s Courageous Journey through Darkness to Sight. “
