Brass Ring Pillow

Heidi Staples Stash Books ePub

Brass Ring

PILLOW SIZE: 18˝ × 18˝

BLOCK SIZE: 14˝ × 14˝

A traditional Wedding Ring block, also known as a Crown of Thorns block, looks surprisingly modern when transformed into a pillow made of low-volume prints or enlarged to make a lap quilt. “Going for the brass ring” is an old American saying that dates to the turn of the twentieth century, when carousel riders used to reach for brass rings as they straddled horses on the outer ring of the ride. Today the phrase refers to those who are willing to do their utmost to achieve their dreams. It’s a lovely thought to accompany a gift for someone special who may be embarking on a new life adventure.

Favorite scraps or charm squares (5˝ squares) can be put to use in this miniature version of the original block, embellished with an extra row of piecing on each side. Low-contrast prints and a tight color scheme make a quiet statement with big impact.

10. Ed Brown

Corey Recko University of North Texas Press PDF


Ed Brown

After arriving in Socorro, William Sayers learned that Maximiano

Griego, the man Miller claimed Brown would hire to kill McDonald, was in jail at the time of the Fountain murder. This information originated from a man named Doherty, who also stated that Brown allegedly had said that he could find the bodies. Sayers reported,

“Mr. Doherty is quite positive that Brown did not kill Fountain, but he is equally certain that Brown knows all about the affair.”

From Doherty and Elfego Baca, Sayers learned that Green

Scott had left the C. N. ranch to, as he claimed, attend court in

Lincoln, and returned after the murder of Fountain. Doherty and

Baca were both in Lincoln at that time and did not see Scott there.

Baca said he spoke to Scott once about the killing and “Scott said he was glad of it and wished to God they had gotten the rest of the family.” Sayers learned that a man named Punch Williams was the main witness against Scott in a cattle rustling charge, but Williams had since disappeared and was said to have been killed by Scott.

14. The Evidential Argument from Evil: A Second Look

Edited by Daniel HowardSnyder Indiana University Press ePub


It is as misleading to speak of the evidential argument from evil as it is to speak of the cosmological argument. Just as there are distinct arguments that qualify as cosmological arguments, there are distinct arguments that qualify as evidential arguments from evil.1 My purpose here is to look again at an evidential argument from evil that I first presented in 1979.2 Since that time I have made several changes in that argument in an effort to make it clearer and to patch up weaknesses in earlier statements of it. Starting with the latest published account of the argument, I will discuss some important criticisms of it and will continue my efforts to clarify, simplify, and strengthen the argument.

The latest formulation I have given of the evidential problem of evil goes something like this.3 (E1 is the case of a fawn trapped in a forest fire and undergoing several days of terrible agony before dying. E2 is the case of the rape, beating, and murder by strangulation of a five-year-old girl.)4

8. Transference

Karnac Books ePub

We have attempted to describe in some detail the way in which Freud’s theories during the second phase of psychoanalysis can be organized into a topographical frame of reference. In view of its complexity we are supplementing the essentially theoretical accounts by more detailed descriptions of the way the apparatus functions. This chapter considers some aspects of the clinical phenomenon of transference as it can be understood within the topographical frame of reference.

The concept of transference was introduced by Freud during the first phase, in Studies on Hysteria (Freud, 1895d), but it received its most extensive and coherent formulation in the second phase of psychoanalysis, 1897-1923. There is an intimate link between the important clinical concept of transference and the topographical model as it was elaborated and modified during this phase. Transference is a concept whose range of use and span of meaning continues to represent a central aspect of the psychoanalytic theory of the therapeutic process in particular, and of the psychoanalytic psychology of interpersonal relationships in general.
