Just ordered this. A book I absolutely MUST have
To Write Like a Woman: Essays in Feminism and Science Fiction - Joanna Russ

The collection contains her wonderful essay on gothic romances, "Someone is trying to kill me and I think it's my husband."

 

I have a couple of her other non-fiction books, but oddly have never read any of her fiction.  I suppose that's another gap in my reading experience I need to fill!

Why Lenders Bring Installment Loans with No Credit Check?

 

The shortage of lending options is not what you see at the US marketplace because lenders are now quite sharp to their lending policies and the assistance of the brokers is always there. But the problem is that the people are not still aware of this and as a result, they struggle while handling the pressure of financial turmoil. Thus, the problem is not the lack of financial sources, but the problem is the lack of knowledge among the people. Same thing happens with installment loans no credit check claim.

 

Despite not counted among the standard loans, these loans are gaining importance on an instant basis because people get the easy repayment options to utilize. In particular, the people with bad credit scores find these loans more in their favour because they get a chance to repay the funds on their convenience. It would be easy for them to improve their credit scores too.

 

The question may arise that why lenders feel it necessary to bring installment loans with no credit check option? Here may be the reasons:

 

The figures are increasing of people with bad credit scores

 

Increasing debts or no repayment of the credit card or loan creates a problem of bad credit scores. The worst thing is that the numbers are increasing on rapid pace of those individuals, who are having the problem of bad credit scores. Banks or traditional lending institutions generally reject the loan applications of those borrowers, who are not good in maintaining their credit scores up to the satisfactory level. But it is not the solution because people are facing such problem in a huge way. However, options are very less but still hope is not ended because installment loans with no credit check are available to use.

 

The inclusion of online tool in the application procedure

 

Nowadays, everyone looks for the convenience and so do the lenders and the brokers. For the borrowers’ point of view, submitting loan applications early is essential because they need funds and quickly and the long application procedure won’t them at all. The online application procedure allows them to submit their loan request as early as possible and without too many formalities. Besides that, the lenders also find easy with the online tool, as they can approve multiple loan applications in a single day. It would be good to their business and borrowers have funds in their hands much quickly as they wanted.

 

Borrowers can get guaranteed loan approval

 

Few years back, people had several obligations to follow in order to apply for the loans. Providing the guarantor or placing the collateral was mandatory and if the borrowers miss even a single obligation, their loan applications were rejected on an instant. However, such obligations are also prevailing, but the major difference is the flexible lending policies. You should ask your broker to find out only those loan deals, where the loans can be applied without much condition to fulfil. It is really important if you are aiming for bad credit personal loans guaranteed approval.

 

Brokers make easy for both lenders and borrowers

 

Since the lending policies have turned more in favour of the borrowers, one should not forget the role of the loan brokers. These specialists have much bigger role to play because they work as a mediator between the borrowers and the lenders. In the USA, the loan brokers are known for their professionalism, such as the Loan Land US, where they first analyze the situation of the borrowers and then start searching for the suitable loan deals for them. As far as the lenders are concerned, the brokers are also useful for them in bringing more clients to use their loan products that will increase their business.

What's real . . . and what isn't . . . and I'm not just talking about rape
Real Rape - Susan Estrich

Disclosure:  I make no apologies for being a radical feminist.  Deal with it.  I hold a BA degree from Arizona State University West in women's studies.  Deal with it.  I earned my master's degree in sociology and interdisciplinary studies from ASU-West in 2003.  Deal with it.

 

Too often, the word "rape" is taken to mean forcible sexual assault by a stranger.  Far more often the act is something very different, and is therefore just assumed to be not rape at all.

 

One of the undergrad classes I took was titled "Women, Crime, and Justice."  Our instructor was Dr. Marie Griffin, an attractive, petite blonde in her mid 30s.  About half the students in the class were male police and/or parole officers working toward either Administration of Justice degrees or planning to go on to law school.  Only about one-fourth the students were female.

 

The course covered various aspects of women and the American justice system - women as police officers and judges, women as lawyers,  women as criminals and victims of crime.

 

At the end of the semester, we had to give the usual presentations, and I chose to do mine on rape:  No means no, and what part of No don't you get?  Because rape is more than just physical force -- as we've seen far too graphically in the latest revelations regarding Harvey Weinstein. 

 

Women are threatened into "consenting" to sexual activity, and many people think that this means it's not rape.  Threats can involve the threat of physical harm, threats of financial harm such as loss of job or income, threats to children or pets or other loved ones, threats of self-harm.  These threats do not have to be explicitly articulated; they can be implied, especially by circumstances.

 

After I had given my presentation, one of the police officer students took issue with some of the things I had said.  His argument went something like this:

 

"So, okay.  If I take a woman out, like to dinner and a show, and I spend a couple hundred bucks on her, don't I have the right to expect something in return?"

 

The gasp from the rest of the class was clearly audible.

 

This was in the year 2000.  The guy was a police officer.

5 sad but bloody amazing stars
Man - Charmaine Pauls
I was gifted my copy direct from the author, that I write a review was not required but I darn well gotta!! Book 9 in this series, and you really REALLY should read all the other books, in order, to get the full picture. You need to know what Godfrey has book up to and what has happened to Cain's team along the way. Much is referenced to from previous books, and you need to know what happened. AND because I bloody well said so!! She captures his attention in a way no woman has for years. There has been no one since his wife died. Too bad that Olivia is the wife of Godfrey, the man Cain and his team have been after for some time. He'll use her to get what he wants, and kill her if she steps in his way. Won't he? When I start a series, I find there is one character who needs to have a story, one who piques my curiosity and I wait, sometimes patiently, sometimes not, for their story. Cain was probably that character right from the start. And he did NOT disappoint me! As leader of the Forbidden Arts task force, its come down to Cain getting Godfrey. And its done in such a way that I was .... say what now?? I had to double back, an several points along the way to check I hadn't missed anything. Because let me tell ya, this book took so many twists and turns, that had I not been glued to the sofa to get this book finished, I would have been dizzy!! We get what Godfrey has been doing to keep his wife in check. We get what he has done to himself to become immortal. And it ain't pretty, no ma'am! Godfrey is a bad, bad man and he does finally run out of those nine lives he had! Well, sorta, kinda, maybe. Bit of a spoiler so not gonna elaborate but did NOT see that coming! We catch up with everyone here. Every team member and their other half takes part in bringing Godfrey down. They aren't all in the same place, but they all pop up at some point and I loved that. Cain is, quite possibly, the dirtiest man in his team! Oh my, yes indeed! And I would say, his story is the steamiest of the whole series! So much steam! Steamed up glasses!! Phew!! But boy oh boy, so darn good!!! But I'm sad! Because this is the LAST book in this series, a series I loved from the time Bono dropped Josselin out the helicopter in front of Clelia, all the way back in the beginning. I'm gonna miss these people, I really am. Maybe, Ms Pauls, there could be a catch up book, a few years from now, just to see how everyone is, and oh! all the babies! Oh pleeeeeeeeeeeeze??? If you are finding this series now, at the last book, go back to the beginning, go right back to the beginning, with the prequel, Loving the Enemy. You won't be disappointed! I don't wanna end my review, because I don't want to say goodbye! 5 sad, but bloody amazing stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
