Diamonds in the Rough explores the lives of African laborers on Angola’s diamond mines from the commencement of operations in 1917 to the colony’s independence from Portugal in 1975. The mines were owned and operated by the Diamond Company of Angola, or Diamang, which enjoyed exclusive mining and labor concessions granted by the colonial government. Through these monopolies, the company became the most profitable enterprise in Portugal’s African empire. After a tumultuous initial period, the company’s mines and mining encampments experienced a remarkable degree of stability, in striking contrast to the labor unrest and ethnic conflicts that flared in other regions. Even during the Angolan war for independence (1961–75), Diamang’s zone of influence remained comparatively untroubled. Todd Cleveland explains that this unparalleled level of quietude was a product of three factors: African workers’ high levels of social and occupational commitment, or “professionalism”; the extreme isolation of the mining installations; and efforts by Diamang to attract and retain scarce laborers through a calculated paternalism. The company’s offer of decent accommodations and recreational activities, as well as the presence of women and children, induced reciprocal behavior on the part of the miners, a professionalism that pervaded both the social and the workplace environments. This disparity between the harshness of the colonial labor regime elsewhere and the relatively agreeable conditions and attendant professionalism of employees at Diamang opens up new ways of thinking about how Africans in colonial contexts engaged with forced labor, mining capital, and ultimately, each other.

To all the diamonds in the rough in this world, I dedicate this book. Shine on and sparkle in your own unique way. Dont run with the crowd or feel the need to blend. Just be you! Its not always the ones with the glam and glitter who try to outshine everyone else but the silent, the subdued, the peaceful ones comfortable in their own skin who are the true diamonds in the rough. My first poem, Diamonds in the Rough, is all about finding out your true grit. To quote a few lines from my poem, Youre the gems that dont glitter, / youre the gems that dont shine. / One day youll be discovered hidden in the mine.

QUANTUM COMPUTERS IN COMBAT FOR THE WORLD! This book is the second in a series, picking up from the harrowing action within COVERT CATASTROPHE. Oakland Paramedic Jim Sanderson continues with the Navy Seals, his father Dr. Kepple, Physicist Judy and Justine, and his new bride Laura. Traveling beneath the world's oceans aboard a sentient, artificially intelligent submarine in the form of a 300-foot manta ray, they continue their quest to destroy a group of AQCs (Adiabatic Quantum Computers) networked into CERN and the LHC (Large Hadron Collider). New secret technologies of their own design along with improvised tactics are merged with Jim and Laura’s newly realized quantum entanglement. Each now linked to their personal quantum computers, they must destroy the AQCs before the LHC opens a portal into another dimension, an act designed to terraform planet Earth for a new race of beings hell-bent upon entering our world.

God used the lives of His Old Testament servants to advance history toward His planned revelation of His Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As He did, He also provided a written record for us to study and use as warnings, exhortations, and boundaries for our own lives. Although our circumstances have changed since ancient biblical times, the people represented in them still look much the same as you and I! This study provides women with a unique approach to learning and applying God's principles for daily living, by examining some of the key lessons that are to be seen from the lives of many Old Testament characters. As we see their attributes and flaws, and study how God interacted with them, we can appreciate how His own standards of holiness are never compromised, although His guidance is tempered with great love and mercy. Join Cindy Lasiter in this seventeen-week study, which can be used for personal study or dynamic group discussion. You too will gain great hope and direction as you see how even God's most incredible servants in the Bible were, at best, diamonds in the rough! Author's Cover Bio Cindy Lasiter has taught God's Word to children, youth, and women for many years. She was a class administrator and women's discussion leader for Bible Study Fellowship International, as well as the director of women's ministry for her church. She currently teaches a Bible study for women at RockPointe Church in Flower Mound, Texas. Her greatest desire is to teach women how to apply God's Word to their lives in order to know Him better and live out His plan and purpose on earth.
