The "beautiful ruins" of this affecting story include not only its physical setting, in a tiny coastal village destined for extinction (Porto Vergogna or the Port of Shame), but also the larger than life characters, including a "real" Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, who appear as supporting actors to the main story of the more ordinary cast: the arrestingly beautiful blonde starlet Dee Moray and the young innkeeper who falls for her, Pasquale Tursi, and many many other memorable characters, their children, their friends, their colleagues.
The novel moves back and forth in time between 1962 and a somewhat vaguely defined "recently." The juxtaposition made possible by this slippage in time serves to remind the reader that all things beautiful eventually become ruins and that many ruins (conversely) were once things of beauty. That double-focus is the source of much of the book's poignancy. The novel's many other, mostly youthful comic characters, associated with its second setting in contemporary Hollywood, do help to balance the book's almost unbearable sadness and lend it a sense of the future that keep it from tipping into tragedy. One character, the "dead-gazed" geriatric Michael Deane, miracle of plastic surgery, tells the haunting cautionary tale of what happens if one rejects the embrace of time.
The result is a beautifully composed, highly entertaining philosophical novel, tightly unified despite its wide-ranging plot. I think the point of the final (title) chapter, which attempts to wrap up all the loose ends, is that, despite the pleasure such storytelling brings, it is finally impossible to harmonize all the notes, to make public all the private losses and gains. As the epigraph of that chapter, taken from Milan Kundera, reflects, nothing is "more obvious, more tangible, than the present moment. And yet it eludes us completely. All the sadness of life lies in that fact." I actually had to stop reading parts of the end of this book because I was crying so much I was having trouble seeing the print. A powerful, moving, but still very funny book.
I wholeheartedly agree with David henderson's thorough, positive and bottom-line assessment of the nutribullet unit.
I'll expand on the reasons why this is a very smart product from a biological and mechanical standpoint.
It is a very very healthy food source, as healthy as the ingredients you put in the blender (unless you grind pits, which would make you sick), and it is a tough, easy-to-use (15 seconds to clean two parts),user-friendly smart product.
The claim of increased bioavailability is certainly true, you eat more plant parts (stems, seeds) and get Way more of the plant broken down for biouse than chewing, before swallowing. But most importantly, and undeniably -- you get ALL the fiber, and that is the single most important aspect of this product -- the amount of uncooked, pulverized, fresh soluble and insoluble fiber that is easily delivered, ingested and tolerated.
Bioavailability -- it delivers a high level of compounds. It can be made too strong, I put too much raw garlic and or onion in the first or second time and my kidneys hurt for a few hours, so I learned to tone the ingredients down, and the message was clear; like taking too many vitamins/supplements at the same time, I had put a lot of compunds in my bloodstream.
That's really all you need to know -- you drink EVERYTHING, no wasting the pulp and all the vital fiber like a juicer, and the contents really are smashed into tiny tiny fragments, way better than anyone can come close to chewing.
MECHANICAL: I checked my blender before I bought Nutri-Bullet at Wal-Malt for $100, and it was only 250 watts, vs NB at 600 Watts. I have owned one year, and it is a SOLID WELL MADE MOTOR UNIT. It looks and feels commercial-grade.
Cleaning -- twice I resorted to this, although a damp towel each use is all that's usually needed --so I unplugged (obviously) and run it under water to clean -- it's just a plastic case around a beefy electric motor, no electronics, LET IT DRY COMPLETELY, and a day later it was good as new. That is the worst-case scenario. It's heavy, and quality. I regularly run it for over a minute, and it tolerates getting heated up well. Runs and sounds like the day I bought it.
The Nutribullet cup screws easily into the the other one of the two parts you have to clean, the blades. The blade assembly gasket appears to be silicone based and can take a torquing. Here is what I have to say about preventing leaks SCREW BLADES TIGHT ENOUGH AND IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW FULL IT IS -- BUT DON'T DO THAT, BLEND, ADD MORE, BLEND, YOU GET MORE LIFE OUT OF BLADES, but the unit is so beefy I have crushed tomatoes down with the blades screwing on the blade unit and then it just tears through it without hesitation.
But at my only cost: Today I seized the bearing in the blending blade unit after about 100 uses. It lists for $11 shipped, so I used the flat blade today -- and it's doing great.
Bottom line: Very well-made machine that will dramatically boost your fiber intake and the best kind of natural nutrient intake. A complete win-win.
Today I used the other blade with good results to blend a banana, apple (cored) handful blueberries,1/2 cup strawberries, 1/2 cup baby carrots, cup of swiss chard and avacado with water into a super smoothie!
How many of you have gotten this much fiber today, or even close to these ntrients and health compunds? It's difficult with our busy lives to eat a fruit and veggie salad everyday, but this takes me 5-10 minutes including clean up and I have a meal to go.
My experience -- I think it should be used every day. I have used several days a week for a year and think it will add years to my life. That simple. MY BP Cholesterol (fantastic with high HDL) BMI Fasting Blood Sugar all normal. Have been good always so i can't say a miracle... but slightly improved BP, it was trending the wrong way. And weight the same, lean. And transit time is about 12 hours, being regular is a blessing and healthy and almost no gas, it digests very easily. I feel great, my physical abilities are superior to most my age -- I'm running races and doing martial arts in my mid 40s. And I'm a pilot and I practice medicine and I'm in the military, so I have many opportunities to see my numbers viewed and reviewed and do objective performance measurements.
I bought units for friends, especially appealing to a friend with Crohn's, and the elderly. It has also inspired me to grow more in my garden.
I hope this helps.
Thannk godnes bic mad this nu pen. growing up i nevr lerned to rite becuse mi smal woman hands culd'nt handel tha big man pens. but now with the bic cristal for her ball pen i can finaly praktis riteing. i'ts stil a litle confousing, but im' geting beter evry day. i feel lik iv'e ben born agen. at 23 yers old i finley understand the world of riten comunikashun. i tryd to rite bic a thank yu leter but the maleman returned it becuse he sed the adres did'nt work. so if yu reed this bic thank yu so much for giving me this butiful opertunity!!!
I needed a large backup and I thought this one was the best buy for the 4TB and brand name.
It comes with software to setup a "Dashboard", also backs up to a cloud, and you can purchase 2yrs. or 3yrs. additional Product Protection and Data Recovery Service. Hopefully I won't need the additional protection and recovery service, but you never know.
At present, it's working great. I'll check back in if anything changes.
I've used Quicken since 1984, typically upgrading every time I get a major new version of Microsoft Windows. This time, however, I upgraded from Quicken 2012 Premier to Quicken 2013 Deluxe, primarily to use the new Quicken iPhone app. (I settled for Deluxe rather than Premier because I haven't found myself needing the extra features of Premier.)
Like last year, the upgrade and registration was easy and mostly automatic. It noticed and removed my previous version, and restored its data, saving a safety copy as it upgraded the data format for 2013. I also had no trouble setting up a new cloud account for use with the iPhone app. However, I did trigger an error message (org.hibernate.exception.LockAcquisitionException : An unexpected exception occurred.) when I asked to also have my budget synced to the cloud. So far as I can tell, the error was harmless, as I still see budget info on my iPhone 4 that matches what I see in the desktop app in Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit.)
The mobile app shows the accounts I've chosen to sync with the cloud, some of which also automatically update themselves with the associated financial institution, and others of which are intentionally not set up to talk directly to their associated financial institution. (I particularly appreciate the latter group, as it's my impression that Quicken's Mint Web site only works with accounts that can be linked with the associated institution, and some of mine cannot be so linked.)
The mobile app gives me a quick overview of my current situation, both overall and in relation to my budget (which it automatically updates as my spending changes.) It also shows me the alerts I've selected, such as when spending in a particular category exceeds its budget by a specified amount, or when I'm charged a bank fee of $1 or more. (I wish there were an option to show bank fees above a penny, as I try very hard never to incur such fees.)
Overall, two hours into using the new version, I'm happy to have upgraded, and will update this later if I notice any thing else important about the new version. [Update: Still no further problems after another week of use. A Quicken survey this week asked me to check the accuracy of my Quicken Mobile data, and it even correctly caught that I'd incorrectly-entered the associated account of a recent check in my Windows version of Quicken. Be sure you are fully updated (to R6 at the moment), as that may be why my experience has been more successful than that of some earlier reviewers.]
Recommended, especially for mobile smartphone and tablet users.
Update: As of January 24, 2013, R10 is the latest update, and still working well for me.
