Anna J. is back with a riveting novel depicting the devastation caused by cocaine use in a Southwest Philadelphia community. You have to use what you got to get what you want. For Journey Clayton, this statement rings more than true as she struggles under the weight of her mother's cocaine addiction. It's not until she befriends Khalid, the son of a neighbourhood drug dealer, who is trying to stay above the struggle himself, that she starts to believe there might just be hope...even for little girls in the ghetto.
"It's impossible to think of the Louisiana bayou without conjuring up James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux books" ("Chicago Tribune"), including this early masterwork that pits the Cajun police detective against one of the New South's most twisted and powerful forces. Oil speculator Weldon Sonnier is the patriarch of a troubled family intimately bound to the CIA, the Mob, and the Klan. Now, the murder of a cop and a bizarre assassination attempt pull Robicheaux into the Sonniers' hellish world of madness, murder, and incest. But Robicheaux has devils of his own-- and they may just destroy the tormented investigator and the two people he holds most dear.
Guidance on good governance in the Quran is enthralling. Over and over again the Quran states that good governance stakeholders must beware of leaders like Pharaoh, and policies must not be like those of the people of Noah, the people of Lot and exploiters of the land. Decision making too must be based on mutual consent and overall welfare of the community - upholding justice, rule of law, sharing community resources, promotion of fair trading and ridding off corruption and economic injustice. In a nutshell good governance is allowing only sincere persons use their common sense to decide on policies and in the implementation of those policies because they have nothing to hide thus there will little barriers to being transparent in the process of decision making and their execution. They are humble enough to submit to God's decrees wholeheartedly without any notions of their creed and custom ways are superior to people of other creed. Just refer to verses Q2:42 and Q5:48 of the Quran. This White Paper on Norms for Good Governance in the Quran is intended to be an introduction to how government departments, public and private organizations as well as individuals can apply Islamic principles to enhance work ethics, increase productivity and service levels, prosper the local community and the nation as a whole through higher standards of living. Diagnostic studies on the specific measures needed for each unit must of course be tailored fit to encompass each unit's unique situation and circumstances. Good governance is about getting priorities right for the nation and specific communities with regards to policies for their security, welfare and economic and non-economic activities as well as to how they may conduct personal inter-relationships and use of personal liberties. To a certain extent policies based on Islamic principles surpasses any welfare state configurations because there would be no free-loaders, lesser demand on public funding to all cooked-up causes and less room for unscrupulous corrupt practitioners to flourish. There are enablers to promote better governance of society and to make the economic system more equitable. This is covered in Section E of this white paper. Section D will address work ethics, fair business practices and what constitutes exploitation
