Short Ghost & Horror Collections - Book 21 Title: Short Ghost and Horror Story Collections Overview: Thousands of short ghost and horror stories are available through our Short Ghost and Horror Story Collections series from classic authors Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H. P. Lovecraft, Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, Washington Irving, Bram Stoker, Lewis Carroll, Gertrude Atherton, Mark Twain, H. G. Wells, Rudyard Kipling, Oscar Wilde, Joseph Conrad, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and many other classic authors. A ghost story is any piece of fiction, or drama, that includes a ghost, or simply takes as a premise the possibility of ghosts or characters' belief in them. The "ghost" may appear of its own accord or be summoned by magic. Linked to the ghost is the idea of a "haunting", where a supernatural entity is tied to a place, object, or person. Colloquially, the term "ghost story" can refer to any kind of scary story. In a narrower sense, the ghost story has been developed as a short story format, within genre fiction. It is a form of supernatural fiction and specifically weird fiction and is often a horror story. Horror is a genre of speculative fiction that is intended to frighten, scare, or disgust. Literary historian J. A. Cuddon defined the horror story as "a piece of fiction in prose of variable length... which shocks, or even frightens the reader, or perhaps induces a feeling of repulsion or loathing". Horror intends to create an eerie and frightening atmosphere for the reader. Horror is often divided into the psychological horror and supernatural horror sub-genres. Often the central menace of a work of horror fiction can be interpreted as a metaphor for larger fears of a society. While ghost stories are often explicitly meant to scare, they have been written to serve all sorts of purposes, from comedy to morality tales while horror stories encompass societal fears. Some of these stories are centuries old, with varying versions across multiple cultures.

Cuddon defined the horror story as "a piece of fiction in prose of variable length... which shocks, or even frightens the reader, or perhaps induces a feeling of repulsion or loathing". Horror intends to create an eerie and frightening atmosphere for the reader. Horror is often divided into the psychological horror and supernatural horror sub-genres. Often the central menace of a work of horror fiction can be interpreted as a metaphor for larger fears of a society. While ghost stories are often explicitly meant to scare, they have been written to serve all sorts of purposes, from comedy to morality tales while horror stories encompass societal fears. Some of these stories are centuries old, with varying versions across multiple cultures.

P. Lovecraft, Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, Washington Irving, Bram Stoker, Lewis Carroll, Gertrude Atherton, Mark Twain, H. G.

A ghost story is any piece of fiction, or drama, that includes a ghost, or simply takes as a premise the possibility of ghosts or characters' belief in them. The "ghost" may appear of its own accord or be summoned by magic. Linked to the ghost is the idea of a "haunting", where a supernatural entity is tied to a place, object, or person. Colloquially, the term "ghost story" can refer to any kind of scary story. In a narrower sense, the ghost story has been developed as a short story format, within genre fiction.

Americans in the 1950s, yearning to return to normalcy after the Great Depression and World War II, got married, had lots of kids, and used their newly middle-class status to buy cookie-cutter houses in the suburbs. But not everyone conformed to the white middle class American Dream. Black Americans were largely excluded from suburban housing and the benefits of the GI Bill; girls who became pregnant out of wedlock were hidden from sight; children with developmental disabilities were sent to institutions; and gay men hid their homosexual attractions for fear of ostracization, harassment, and even legal consequences. The secrets they kept took a toll on the families who kept them. Joining me to discuss the secrets of the 1950s is Dr. Margaret K. Nelson, Hepburn Professor Emerita of Sociology at Middlebury College and author of Keeping Family Secrets: Shame and Silence in Memoirs from the 1950s.

The "Red Wave" that was trumped up as a red tsunami never materialized... it barely lapped the shore (I am keeping with the wave analogy here). So what happened? Did we Americans essentially fear the instability that election deniers pose to our democratic systems? If so, we must have feared this so much that we voted for the very party that most of us seem to blame for high inflation, which has always been the death knell for political parties in power in the U.S. This is a story of geography, demography, money & minority rule. My guest in this episode is Dr. David Schultz, a Distinguished Hamline University Professor of Political Science and Legal Studies. He is also a professor of law at Hamline as well as the University of Minnesota Schools of Law, where he teaches election law. In this conversation, he tells me about what he believes to be the most important election in U.S. history: the presidential election of 1800. Why is this election important? Because it set the precedent for the losing political party to relinquish power. At the end of the day, Adams conceded his loss (hint, Mr. Trump). Dr. Schultz explains how polarization has increased in America's politics over the last 50 years, and why polarization will decrease in the next decade (I know, I was surprised too). We also talk about a subject that has baffled and then angered me for years: Super PACs. Don't they threaten our democracy? We end our conversation with another intriguing realization - that America's election winners are receiving only a minority of the votes. This is a crazy idea in a democracy. Yet, it is happening in ours. To learn more about Dr. Schultz, you can visit his academic homepage. In addition, below are links to other interesting episodes: S1E40: The Real Story of Thanksgiving, Dr. David Silverman S2E27: America's Election Disputes & Violence, Prof. Edward Foley S2E38: Chile's History of Polarized Politics, Dr. Claudio Fuentes I hope you enjoy these episodes.

Short Ghost & Horror Collections - Book 6, Part 2 Title: Short Ghost and Horror Story Collections Overview: Thousands of short ghost and horror stories are available through our Short Ghost and Horror Story Collections series from classic authors Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H. P. Lovecraft, Mary Shelley, Edgar Allan Poe, Washington Irving, Bram Stoker, Lewis Carroll, Gertrude Atherton, Mark Twain, H. G. Wells, Rudyard Kipling, Oscar Wilde, Joseph Conrad, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and many other classic authors. A ghost story is any piece of fiction, or drama, that includes a ghost, or simply takes as a premise the possibility of ghosts or characters' belief in them. The "ghost" may appear of its own accord or be summoned by magic. Linked to the ghost is the idea of a "haunting", where a supernatural entity is tied to a place, object, or person. Colloquially, the term "ghost story" can refer to any kind of scary story. In a narrower sense, the ghost story has been developed as a short story format, within genre fiction. It is a form of supernatural fiction and specifically weird fiction and is often a horror story. Horror is a genre of speculative fiction that is intended to frighten, scare, or disgust. Literary historian J. A. Cuddon defined the horror story as "a piece of fiction in prose of variable length... which shocks, or even frightens the reader, or perhaps induces a feeling of repulsion or loathing". Horror intends to create an eerie and frightening atmosphere for the reader. Horror is often divided into the psychological horror and supernatural horror sub-genres. Often the central menace of a work of horror fiction can be interpreted as a metaphor for larger fears of a society. While ghost stories are often explicitly meant to scare, they have been written to serve all sorts of purposes, from comedy to morality tales while horror stories encompass societal fears. Some of these stories are centuries old, with varying versions across multiple cultures.

S2E38: Chile's History of Polarized Politics - a timely conversation after U.S. midterm elections…

History Behind News

Play Episode Listen Later Nov 11, 2022 65:14


Before the CIA-supported 1973 coup that placed Pinochet in power, Chile enjoyed democracy for several decades. Remarkably, after less than a decade of Pinochet's brutal repression of his people, Chileans were able to slowly introduce changes that lay the foundation for the eventual return of democracy. This is a huge national accomplishment. In this episode, Dr. Claudio Fuentes takes us through the history of Chile's polarized politics from prior to 1973 to 2022. Despite this polarization, Chile's democracy has survived. Perhaps the reason is that Chileans have experienced the alternative to democracy: Pinochet's years. As our politics become more polarized here in the U.S., we can learn quite a lot from Chile, in how fragile democracy is, in how polarization can destroy democracy. Dr. Fuentes is a professor at the School of Political Science at Diego Portales University in Chile. His academic interests focus on the study of political processes in Chile and Latin America, and in recent years on the study of the dynamics of institutional change. Among his many other recognitions, Dr. Fuentes won the award for the best doctoral thesis awarded by the American Political Science Association (APSA) and is a Luksic Fellow at Harvard University (2011). In Chile, was a member of the Presidential Anti-Corruption Advisory Council (2015). He is an associate researcher at the Center for Intercultural and Indigenous Studies (CIIR) and coordinates the Constitutional Laboratory at Diego Portales University. To learn more about Dr. Fuentes, you can visit his academic homepage. In addition, below are links to other episodes about U.S. interests, interference and even occupation of countries and nations in the Americas: S2E35: Puerto Rico, Dr. Jorge Duany S1E24: Cuba's History, Dr. Lillian Guerra S1E23: Haiti's History, Dr. Robert Fatton I hope you enjoy these episodes.

A ghost story is any piece of fiction, or drama, that includes a ghost, or simply takes as a premise the possibility of ghosts or characters' belief in them. The "ghost" may appear of its own accord or be summoned by magic. Linked to the ghost is the idea of a "haunting", where a supernatural entity is tied to a place, object, or person. Colloquially, the term "ghost story" can refer to any kind of scary story. In a narrower sense, the ghost story has been developed as a short story format, within genre fiction. It is a form of supernatural fiction and specifically weird fiction and is often a horror story. Horror is a genre of speculative fiction that is intended to frighten, scare, or disgust. Literary historian J. A. Cuddon defined the horror story as "a piece of fiction in prose of variable length... which shocks, or even frightens the reader, or perhaps induces a feeling of repulsion or loathing". Horror intends to create an eerie and frightening atmosphere for the reader. Horror is often divided into the psychological horror and supernatural horror sub-genres. Often the central menace of a work of horror fiction can be interpreted as a metaphor for larger fears of a society. While ghost stories are often explicitly meant to scare, they have been written to serve all sorts of purposes, from comedy to morality tales while horror stories encompass societal fears. Some of these stories are centuries old, with varying versions across multiple cultures.

This is Renegade Files Episode 33, The Betz Sphere.In late March of 1974 the Betz family was dealing with an afternoon brush fire on their wooded, 88 acre, Fort George Island estate at the north-east corner of Florida.Among the ashes 20 year-old son Terry Betz found a most out of place object. There, amid the still-smoking grass, was a gleaming metallic sphere the size of a bowling ball, unmarked and cool to the touch.He brought it home as a curiosity where soon it started to vibrate, roll around the house on it's own, display intelligent control, follow people, and cause the family dog to cower. So what exactly is the Betz Sphere? Where did it come from? And who has it now?

As a girl born in 1883 to a family who couldn't afford to send her to college, Elsie Robinson had limited options. To escape the drudgery of small-town life and then a stifling marriage, Elsie wrote. And wrote. And wrote. When her asthmatic son was home sick from school, she wrote and illustrated stories to entertain him. When she needed to make money to support herself and her son after her divorce, she wrote again. Eventually, her prolific writing caught the attention of the Hearst media empire, and Elsie became the most-read woman writer in America and the highest-paid woman writer in the Hearst organization. But today, few people remember Elsie Robinson or her writing. Joining me to help us learn more about Elsie Robinson is writer Allison Gilbert, co-author of Listen, World!: How the Intrepid Elsie Robinson Became America's Most-Read Woman.

Can a U.S. president declassify a document by merely thinking about it? My guest is Heidi Kitrosser, Professor of Law at Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law. Professor Kitrosser is an expert on the constitutional law of federal government secrecy and on separation of powers and free speech law… more broadly. She is the author of the following book: Reclaiming Accountability: Transparency, Executive Power, and the U.S. Constitution, which was awarded the 2014 Chicago-Kent College of Law / Roy C. Palmer Civil Liberties Prize. She is on the steering committee of a new initiative – the Free Expression Legal Network (FELN) spearheaded by Yale's Media Freedom and Information Access Clinic and the Reporter's Committee for Freedom of the Press She not only tackles the above question head-on, but she also gets into the history of classified information (e.g., Nixon's executive orders), and analyzes the culpability of the Judicial and Legislative branches of our government in giving the Executive branch more or less a free rein when it comes to classified information. To learn more about Professor Kitrosser, you can visit her academic homepage.
