Fifty Shades of Black and White: Anatomy of the Lawsuit behind a Publishing Phenomenon by Mike FarrisWhen four women first banded together to form The Writer’s Coffee Shop publishing house, little did they know they would publish one of the most successful book series in history: Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed. Although they never formalized a written partnership agreement, the four operated The Writer’s Coffee Shop as a partnership, but that lack of a written agreement was a portent of things to come. After selling publishing rights to the Fifty Shades trilogy to Random House, one of them claimed no partnership ever existed and made off with more than $40,000,000 in royalties from the sale.
It was against this backdrop that Jennifer Pedroza retained attorney Mike Farris to file a lawsuit in Fort Worth, Texas, to establish that The Writers Coffee Shop had been, and still was, a partnership; that she was a still-existing partner in that partnership; and that she was entitled to her share of partnership profits.
Fifty Shades of Black and White provides an insider’s look at the sordid story of the rise and fall of The Writer’s Coffee Shop, as well as a study of the litigation it spawned. Mike Farris explains how the case developed and proceeded in the courtroom while Jennifer Pedroza tells her personal story of how she was victimized by someone she thought was a friend. In the end, this is a cautionary tale of what happens when money comes between comrades and of the importance of “getting it in writing.” It is an illustration of why greed is one of the seven deadly sins.

And I hope that, like me, it might change how you interpret information in your practice. Since writing this in draft and sending it round to the team for review, this brilliant post was published today at PulmCrit , which covers a lot of the same ground. Please check that superbly written post out as well — but I promise that the overlap is total coincidence — the two have been written independently. Outside of medicine, one of my biggest interests is music. I play the piano — badly — but I enjoy it nonetheless. Imagine I walked into a music shop.
I haven't seen such unabashed coverage of wild sex acts in mainstream media since the opening of the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie in February. I'm no prude but I made it a point not to see the movie despite the hype. Actually, the hype kinda turned me off. The only climax I would pay to see on the big screen is superheroes fighting robots in an orgy of CGI mayhem. Fifty Shades Of Grey has been labelled as "mummy porn", although I've yet to catch my mother guiltily reading the E.

He brings people and poverty to our attention in an artistic way and at the touch of a 'click. Black and white allow for a more direct but also deeper reading of the image, It's almost like connecting in a sacred dimension with it, at least I do. I first realized the power of black and white when I was photographing wildlife a couple years ago, I didn't want these animals to look real, I wanted them to look sacred, only black and white did that for me. Pineros was raised in a middle-class family but he often found himself surrounded by poverty while growing up in Colombia. His images have a timelessness about them and the dark and mysterious photographic shades intimately lead our eyes to focus on the story rather than the colors. The people inside the pictures seem as though they are inviting us to explore their scars, the lines, memories and the emotions of things we may never know anything about.
For the first time women can claim — some without shame — that they read sexually explicit material and enjoy it. The researchers point out that even newer forms of erotica, including that written by women for women, tend to perpetuate patriarchal values. A growing school of thought, called technofeminism, is working to address the digital gender gap and make a sphere traditionally associated with the masculine more balanced.
