Therapy (1995) is a novel by British author David Lodge.
The story concerns a successful sitcom writer, Laurence Passmore, plagued by middle-age neuroses and a failed marriage. His only problem seems to be an "internal derangement of the knee" but a mid-life crisis has struck and he is discovering angst. His familiar doses of cognitive therapy, aromatherapy, and acupuncture all offer no help, and he becomes obsessed with the philosophy of Kierkegaard. Moreover, Tubby, as Passmore is nicknamed, and referred to by several characters in the novel, undertakes a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in order to find his first love.
Structure of the novel
The novel is divided into four parts. The first part is written as a journal, the second part is written in dramatic monologues, the third part consists of journal entries and a memoir and the fourth part is a narrative written after the events happened and Tubby has returned to London.
In the first part, Tubby starts writing a journal triggered by a description he had to write for his cognitive behavior therapist. Before that Tubby wrote only screenplays but no narrative texts. During the writing Tubby reflects upon his problems and depression.
Therapy is the debut album from English musician Jim Lea, best known as songwriter, producer, bassist and multi-instrumentalist for the rock group Slade.
"Therapy" is Lea's first full album of solo material although Lea has released other material under various names since the early 1980s. After twenty-five years in Slade, lead vocalist Noddy Holder had become weary of constantly touring and effectively managing the day-to-day running of the band, leaving to pursue other career paths. Rather than take on another singer, Lea effectively retired from Slade, preferring to work alone in the studio as he believed that Slade had to consist of all four members. The two remaining members both guitarist Dave Hill and drummer Don Powell remained in the music business, performing as Slade II.
Since the band's split, Lea had released a few singles of new material and in 1992, Lea's side-project band The Dummies from the early 1980s, released an album of all recorded material titled "A Day in the Life of The Dummies". Although not a Lea solo album, the songs feature lead vocal from Lea.
.Africa is the proposed Internet generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) for the African and Pan African communities and users wherever they may reside. The .africa gTLD serves as a regional domain for individuals and entities based in and out of Africa.
The .Africa gTLD has not yet been delegated to any organization as registry operator. The .Africa application that was submitted by DotConnectAfrica Trust is now the subject of an unresolved disagreement with ICANN (DCA Trust vs ICANN) following an Independent Review Panel (IRP) Process that was invoked by DCA Trust under ICANN’s accountability mechanism in October 2013. The IRP was administrated by the International Center for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) New York, US.
DCA Trust had passed all the new gTLD applicant evaluation criteria, but before the Initial Evaluation (IE) result was issued, a Governmental Advisory Committee GAC Objection Advice that had been issued in Beijing in April 2013 was later accepted by the ICANN Board in early June 2013 which caused the ICANN Board to instruct ICANN staff that DCA Trust’s .Africa new gTLD application will not be approved. This had caused the non-completion of the evaluation of DCA Trust’s application; which then led DCA Trust to challenge the ICANN Board decision through a series of accountability mechanism.
Africa and De viris illustribus were partially inspired by Petrarch's visit to Rome in 1337. According to Bergin and Wilson (p. ix). It seems very likely that the inspirational vision of the Eternal City must have been the immediate spur to the design of the Africa and probably De viris illustribus as well. After returning from his grand tour, the first sections of Africa were written in the valley of Vaucluse. Petrarch recalls
The fact that he abandoned it early on is not entirely correct since it was far along when he received two invitations (from Rome and from Paris) in September 1340 each asking him to accept the crown as poet laureate. A preliminary form of the poem was completed in time for the laurel coronation April 8, 1341 (Easter Sunday).
Africa is the first official single by Lebanese Canadian singer Karl Wolf from his second studio album Bite The Bullet. The album version of the song features rapper/reggae artist Culture. The song is inspired by the worldwide hit "Africa" by Toto and samples music and covers lyrics from the chorus from the original version, providing new lyrics in place of the original's verses.
Despite the African title of the song, the music video was actually shot off the shore of Dibba, Oman. The music video for "Africa" starts off with Wolf at his secret island resort on his laptop. He gets a call with the ringtone for "Desensitize" (an earlier hit by Karl Wolf featuring Culture). Culture is on the phone informing Wolf that he is on a boat and heading toward shore to meet up with Wolf.
In the next scene, Wolf sees a sexy woman in a bikini on the beach and starts talking to her. Some other scenes in the video also take place at nighttime with Wolf, Culture, and the same sexy woman in a yellow bikini around a fireplace.
