Summary

I have worked for four different cruise lines in many different positions over a period of 18 years.  I started at the bottom and worked my way up to being part of the Senior Management Team and being involved in the hiring process.  This is a detailed guideline written from my own experience that you will benefit from.  Working on a cruise ship is a FANTASTIC experience and a completely different LIFESTYLE.   Discover how you too can have the opportunity to go places most people can only dream of.  This booklet aims to help you obtain a position on board a ship by giving you the best advice I possibly can, taken from my personal experience and the guidance I have given countless people over the years.   I give you the details, the links to the right websites, examples and so much more.  What you will also find here, is the honest truth.  No rosy picture painted... the naked truth. If you are prepared for the good and the bad, you will be more likely to succeed. I don’t want to be one of those people who tells you all the pretty stuff to get you there. I’m not out to get you… what I am out to do is ensure you are prepared and that if this is really your dream, to help guide you to achieve that.

    “Perfectly captures the spirit of Music City . . . An incredible collection of recipes that makes you want to spend as much time as possible in Nashville” (Sean Brock, chef and author of Heritage).   If it seems like Nashville is everywhere these days—that’s because it is. GQ recently declared it “Nowville,” and it has become the music hotspot for both country and rock. But as hot as the music scene is, the food scene is even hotter.   In Nashville Eats, more than one hundred mouthwatering recipes reveal why food lovers are headed south for Nashville’s hot chicken, buttermilk biscuits, pulled pork sandwiches, cornmeal-crusted catfish, chowchow, fried green tomatoes, and chess pie. Author Jennifer Justus whips up the classics—such as pimento cheese and fried chicken—but also includes dishes with a twist on traditional Southern fare—such as Curried Black Chickpeas or Catfish Tacos. And alongside the recipes, Jennifer shares her stories of Nashville—the people, music, history, and food that make it so special.   “A love letter to the working-class cooking of Nashville . . . Nashville Eats by Jennifer Justus is a well-honed cultural passkey to one of America’s great culinary cities.” —John T. Edge, coeditor, The Southern Foodways Alliance Community Cookbook

    While most books about the Amish focus on the Pennsylvania settlements or on the religious history of the sect, this book is a cultural history of one Indiana Amish community and its success in resisting assimilation into the larger culture. Amish culture has persisted relatively unchanged primarily because the Amish view the world around them through the prism of their belief in collective salvation based on purity, separation, and perseverance. Would anything new add or detract from the community's long-term purpose? Seen through this prism, most innovation has been found wanting.Founded in 1841, Shipshewana benefited from LaGrange County's relative isolation. As Dorothy O. Pratt shows, this isolation was key to the community's success. The Amish were able to develop a stable farming economy and a social structure based on their own terms. During the years of crisis, 1917–1945, the Amish worked out ways to protect their boundaries that would not conflict with their basic religious principles. As conscientious objectors, they bore the traumas of World War I, struggled against the Compulsory School Act of 1921, negotiated the labyrinth of New Deal bureaucracy, and labored in Alternative Service during World War II. The story Pratt tells of the postwar years is one of continuing difficulties with federal and state regulations and challenges to the conscientious objector status of the Amish. The necessity of presenting a united front to such intrusions led to the creation of the Amish Steering Committee. Still, Pratt notes that the committee's effect has been limited. Crisis and abuse from the outer world have tended only to confirm the desire of the Amish to remain a people apart, and lends a special poignancy to this engrossing tale of resistance to the modern world.

    At the Lightning Field

    The Lightning Field is a singular artwork: it can only be experienced in person, with reservations made months in advance and a trip to New Mexico, where caretakers leave you overnight to commune with De Maria's masterpiece and the landscape. It's a site of fascination for many, especially because it can be seen by so few. Raicovich's access to the site (she was previously the deputy director of DIA) makes her essay the rare deep engagement with the work, and allows each visit to refract the ones previous, reconsidering how memory changes her idea of the work, and opening up larger questions of how we interact with art and memory more broadly.At the Lightning Field takes the site as its center, but spins off into calculus, chaos theory, phenomenology, John Cage, weather, and land and conceptual art. Readers with an affection for Barthes and the personal inflection of his thinking should be fans of Raicovich. The author's position as the head of the Queen's Museum (and her previous position at DIA) give her access to unusual resources, both in placing the book in museum stores and in reaching art world media, broadening the base of support for the book.
