  • Bouki's Honey: Based on the Creole Folktales: "Compaire Bouki and Compaire Lapin"

    Come share in the rich, Creole Culture of Louisiana, cher! Learn (French Creole) and laugh -- with the humorous, Creole characters "Bouki and Lapin" "The Creole Folktales of Compaire Bouki and Compaire Lapin" have a rich and fascinating history, hundreds of years old. The tales originated from Senegal, Africa and according to the historical, Louisiana Creole Plantation 'Laura', they were first recorded in the United States - in Laura Plantation's 150-year-old cabins. Lapin's adventures ('Lapin' means "rabbit" in French) soon went on to become the popular American Tales known as 'Br'er (Brother) Rabbit' - only 'Compaire Bouki and Compaire Lapin' retain the original, unique French Creole 'flavor'. (In French folklore, 'compaire/compair' means brother.) In various Louisiana stories Bouki is pictured as a donkey, raccoon or wolf. You'll get to meet 'Bouki the donkey', in "Bouki's Honey." Bouki was a 'hyena' in the original African folktales. The name 'Bouki' is a 'wolof ' word - 'wolof ' being both the language and the people of Senegal, Africa - and is said to mean, "stupid hyena." Some even say 'Bouki' is a play on words meaning, "bookish" (something the character never is). It is believed that the Senegal slaves brought to Louisiana, actually told the African-based stories of 'Bouki and Lapin' as code, to illustrate victory over the conditions of slavery - with Lapin humorously outwitting plantation owner, 'Bouki'. Thus we have 'a bit of history and a lot of humor', with the colorful tales of 'Lapin' - the clever, trickster rabbit, and 'Bouki', the slow-witted donkey. Today, 'Compaire Bouki and Compaire Lapin' continue to be popular, French Creole folktales passed from generation to generation -- and enjoyed by ages one to 101. *Note: Coming in late 2007- Bouki and Lapin merchandise - t-shirts, coffee mugs and more at BoukiandLapin.com

  • Just Snap Your Fingers and . . . Bingo You're Sober!: As Memory Serves Me

    In his book, "Just Snap Your Fingers and . . . Bingo You're Sober" author Maurice Murray provides recovering alcoholics with an extensive guide to overcoming alcoholism by tapping into their thought processes and spirituality. His workbook is arranged in five chapters: Recovery Your Way (how alcohol works on the mind, accepting responsibility, and understanding the meaning of love as it applies to objects, people, and God) God Fixes Cracked Pots (relationships between the thought process and attitude) The Chair's Fixed, Relax and Sit in It (self-realization, self awareness, one's personal relationship with God) Swat That Bee on Your Recovery Doorknob (how feelings are connected to our thought processes and behavior, learning to listen, feel, and visualize to achieve a new emotional balance) and Bingo You're Sober (self hypnosis as a tool for instilling spiritual and mental recovery skills) The book is peppered with spiritual and philosophical anecdotes intended to provide positive reinforcement and hope. Murray draws on a lifetime of experience to present relevant stories in the form of thoughtful and sometimes comical anecdotes meant to inspire recovering alcoholics to stay on the healing path. The main message of the book is that alcoholism is a disease that can be defeated. Part of recovery entails understanding how your thought processes work, changing them, and recognizing the power spirituality plays in the recovery process. One essential message Murray imparts: Your life isn't hopeless. It is your negative thoughts that have led you to believe it is hopeless. As Murray states, "Recovery requires conscious and continuous positive actions" Written from a heartfelt struggle with alcoholism, Murray candidly shares his wisdom on recovering from the disease. I highly recommend Bingo You're Sober to those seeking clarity, the resolve to recover, and finding peace during a difficult period of one's life. Tr

    Includes an extensive Note to Parents and Caregivers with more information about talking to children about death, guidelines for answering a child's questions, advice for attending funerals and visiting cemeteries, and ideas for commemorating the loved one.

  • The Nu Collitch Dickshunary

    The Nu Collitch Dickshunary is a humorous collection of words that appeared on essays written over a 20-year period by college students in the author's class on Contemporary Social Problems. The purpose of the essays, which were meant to be an exercise in critical thinking, was to give the students an opportunity to comment on particular problems as they were discussed in the reading assignments, lectures or in film/video presentations. The essays not only illustrate the ingenuity and creativity of today's young people in finding the right words to fit a particular situation, but they also reveal a high degree of originality in their spelling practices. In order to preserve some of these "gems" for posterity the author noted them on 3x5 cards, and over the years compiled a fairly extensive collection (or collation as one of his students might write); and in this small volume he has brought them together for your edification and possible amusement.

  • Mapping My Day

    Flora loves drawing, especially drawing maps! Follow Flora and her zany family as she takes us through her day with a series of vibrant and interactive maps.

    In our current GPS-ruled world, map-reading is something of a dying art. But learning to read, understand, and draw maps is a fun and active way for children to develop spatial thinking skills-- how we think about and understand the world around us and use concepts of space for problem solving. Early exposure to maps concepts can help foster this type of cognitive development in children and boost their math and science learning as they progress through school.

    Each hand-drawn, kid-friendly map highlights key map concepts in the context of a story or puzzle. Figure out which route to school is the fastest, how to find Flora's buried treasure, and even how to complete a dog agility course!

    Includes a Note to Parents, Caregivers, and Professionals with more information about maps and spatial concepts, as well as questions, games, and activities designed to encourage children to map their own days!

    From the Note to Parents, Caregivers, and Professionals:

    For readers of all ages, the three goals of this book are to:

    1) show readers that maps can convey many types of information. Maps can tell all sorts of stories, sometimes more easily than with words.

    2) inspire kids to draw their own maps and diagrams. Drawing spatial relationships is an excellent way to develop this spatial skill, and understanding spatial relationships is important for many aspects of life, including math and science learning.

    3) introduce basic map concepts and vocabulary, and demonstrate why they are important. Each map in the story highlights just one or two map concepts at a time (compass rose, scale bar, legend, etc.), which are necessary for understanding that particular map.

  • Moving Beyond Prejudice Reduction: Pathways to Positive Intergroup Relations

    This edited volume moves beyond social psychology's traditional focus on prejudice reduction, to explore novel approaches to improving relations and fostering empathy between members of socially dominant "ingroups" and oppressed/victimized "outgroups."

    The contributors to this volume explore these issues across three theoretical and conceptual dimensions: reconceptualizing how we think about intergroup attitudes, examining motivations and expectations across group boundaries, and promoting closeness and inclusion in cross-group relationships. The book's final grouping of chapters applies these concepts to forgiveness, reparation, and reconciliation among different ethnopolitical groups in postconflict societies.

  • Selling Fashion: The Digital Photographer Peers into the Shop Window

    I was in Lille, France, with my wife, Liz, just after the Millennium, and saw an attractive window of a store selling wedding outfits. I saw that Liz's head and shoulders fitted neatly into the window, and photographed the composition. That image is not in this book, but that occasion stirred my imagination to notice windows in shopping-streets, and particularly the ones in which human life was reflected - namely those involved in fashion, peopled with display models. In 2004, I paid a visit to The London Eye, also with Liz, and, having taken a number of shots on that wet February morning, went home to discover how the use of filters in Photoshop can add excitement and interest to images which otherwise might be totally without merit. Some of the results of that venture are due to appear in a later volume, 'Painting with a Camera'. The use of filters is employed in the images in this book. Later in 2004, I visited my local city of Brighton, and spent a morning, exploring the Western Road shopping area, and had my first big haul of Fashion images. I had also been thrown out of Marks and Spencer for attempting to pursue my quarry off the street into the inner sanctum. Since that first morning, until 2007, in whatever city or town I found myself, I would have an eye open to capture the images available from brightly-designed windows. My favourite photography is that of wildlife, so the project may be quite complete, but I throroughly enjoyed the hunt during the four years when it was on.

  • A Slip of the Lip: Words of Wisdom from African American Grandparents

    This is a book that contains words of wisdom, more specifically- "sayings", handed down by African American grandparents, great-grandparents, and even great-great-grandparents. It is to be enjoyed by all ethnic groups because for generations grandparents, great-grandparents, and those adopted as grandparents played important roles in the lives of countless grandchildren. For this book , the term grandparents will be used for great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents and others we have adopted as our grandparents.. Many of us remember the hours, days, months, and often years in the presence of grandparents who seemed to have all the answers to life and living. If you or someone you know had such an experience, you would probably remember or be told of the warnings or encouragement given by those affectionately called (just to name a few) , Grandmother, Grandfather, Big Mama, Big Daddy, Granddaddy, Paw Paw, Gramma, Grampa, or Ma'Dea. They were wise and earnestly attempted to guide us in making the best decisions for our lives. There were times when we listened and times when the words went right over our heads but somehow, when we came of age, we understood, repeated, and more often than not, followed their advice. Some "sayings" in this book will be familiar and bring back memories. Others will be unfamiliar. Today, some may appear to be negative. That shouldn't stop you from enjoying each chapter and at the end of the last chapter please add your own words of wisdom.

Inspired to reinvent herself and forge a way that worked for her, Whispers of the Goddess became the scaffold she needed to build to continue on her creative writing path. "There are soft, subtle voices that ask us to listen for our own messages and sift through our own feelings and beliefs to see what it is we are faithful to and grateful for. We can cultivate, through writing, this communication with the whole universe in a sacred and centered way. The words will come to save you, to help you!" Whispers of the Goddess reveals thoughts sculpted by the love of so much in and of this universe. Carole shares an interesting view of the world around her, spiritually, emotionally, and genuinely. Her work has been described as inspiring, deep and raw with truth. "The muse is always there, waiting to be heard, a voice so silent with power. The words that come through will be universally understood. Inspiration walks hand in hand with the animated leaf that scurries alongside us. The peculiar feeling of sadness on the spray of the sea. The way the full moon lights up the face of the ocean, reminding us how very small we really are. We want to do what we love without the fear of being judged. Everything springs forward from there."

  • Varieties of Anomalous Experience: Examining the Scientific Evidence

    In this revised and updated edition of a classic text, contributors present a wide range of research on anomalous experiences, from commonly documented sensations like synesthesia, lucid dreaming, out-of-body experiences and auditory and visual hallucinations, to rarer and more seemingly inexplicable experiences such as anomalous healing, past-lives, near-death experiences, mystical experiences, and even alien abductions.

  • Triplanetary

    "TRIPLANETARY is the first of the six classic 'Lensman' books, long recognized as the greatest space opera ever written." -- John Clute

    "The Lensman books . . . are the books I cut my teeth on as a fan, and together they comprise one of the true milestones in science fiction literature." -- J. Michael Straczynski

  • Six Poems of Joseph Smith

    Like the prophet Isaiah, Joseph Smith was a poet, and in Six Poems by Joseph Smith, author and poet Colin B. Douglas has selected and formatted six sections of the Doctrine and Covenants as poetry, for, in fact, these particular sections (93, 76, 88, 1, 133, and 121-22) are poetry. As he explains, "These selections from the Doctrine and Covenants are impressive poems, and to be fully understood they must be read as such. That is, they mean presentationally as well as discursively, by 'how they say' as well as by 'what they say.' Though their didactic purposes cannot be ignored, I do not propose a mere 'appreciation' of them as 'literature' in addition to those extraliterary values. The so-called 'literary' aspects of these works are essential aspects of the thought; they are among the means by which the works 'mean'; and to ignore them is to ignore a dimension of meaning, for Joseph Smith was a poet-prophet--a poet whose 'matter' was his revelatory experiences, and a prophet who articulated--constituted--his experiences through the process of poetic creation. In him, the functions of poet and prophet are inseparable." After each poem, Douglas goes on to provide penetrating analysis, some of the most insightful commentary ever written on the revelations of Joseph Smith, including observations on meaning, structure, voice, and presentation. In summary, he writes, "The 'poetic achievement' of Joseph Smith (in its totality, not only in these few texts) is the main current of nineteenth-century American literature, indeed of world literature, from its beginning to its imminent end. Although readers outside the faith have some excuse for not taking Joseph Smith seriously as a poet, the Latter-day Saints have none."

  • 2012 and the Ring of Light: When Mankind Finally Grows up

    Will 2012 signal the end of the Fourth World-our current world-and the beginning of the Fifth, a world in which all races live in peace and harmony? Author Nancy Shaffron weaves a riveting and hypnotic tapestry from the threads of Hopi and Mayan legends to which she brings thoughtful discussions of catastrophic geological events and mysterious worldwide DNA changes.The Hopi Indian Fifth World legend and speculation about the ancient Mayan calendar's abrupt end at the winter solstice of our year 2012 provide the backdrop as DNA researcher Dr. Jason Towne and his colleague, geologist and parapsychologist Greg Sutherland, seek to understand the changes in their families and the rumblings of Mother Earth. Shaffron's haunting words transport us into dark and ancient Druid ceremonies and paint deeply moving stories of conception and birth and a heart-wrenching scene of loss. We hear the strange music of the ages and the words of the Light Beings as they guide and watch our tiny blue planet struggle through its transformation.

In her youth and early twenties, she explores numerous religions, but none speak to her soul. She can't accept the idea that one group has the whole truth and everyone else is wrong, or confused, or infidels, or a cult, or going to burn in hell for all time. To limit her thinking for religious purposes is like living in a cubicle and not being allowed to look over the wall and see what is going on outside. She wants to think for herself, to study, to analyze and to practice without inhibitions. Why would God only accept the practices and prayers of one particular group and not others? An omniscient God can't be that petty, can he-or she? She finally concludes that she just doesn't know and flounders in a spiritual void for a time. But when she is diagnosed with a serious illness and haunted by inner demons of her past, she cracks and falls apart. Deep, buried emotions erupt to the surface, shaking her to her core. Propelled to seek answers and find inner peace, she cries out to the heavens for help. Consequently, she tumbles into a spiritual adventure that explodes her concepts of reality and opens her to a brave new world where souls talk, trees emit energy fields, rocks have life, and God is everywhere.

  • Single with Breast Cancer: My Journey

    I was so healthy, so young and so happy at age 55. I did not expect a call from the hospital informing me I had breast cancer. I didn't want to deal with this. It seems that God had finally found a way to sit me still long enough to figure out my life. I would learn why this disease entered my life at this time. I would learn to love myself. I would learn to give up the things that took me off my journey in life and notice the gifts God gave me to keep me on my true journey. I learned to be grateful everyday of my life. I learned to change the things I hated waking up to and making my dreams happen for me. With God's help of course. I managed to bring a puppy in my life that would take me on a journey of its own. I knew on my journey with breast cancer I would overcome this disease and it would be just another bump in the road. It was my detour as I was on a path I should not be on. I took breast cancer for what it was. God was making his statement and it was loud and clear to me. I was given the chance to re-evaluate my life and start living it. I was given the chance to take hold of what I really wanted in this lifetime and make it happen. There is no good time and no good reason to put things off. You are the holder to that key. However it needs to be, you allow your desires to come in to you life. This is one life, one chance and no one should leave this show with a desire. No one should have to utter the words "I wish I did" - "I wish I could." I had made myself too busy to listen to what God was telling me for years. I was not able to give it all up to God. I felt I needed to control my life to make things happen myself. How foolish was I? Did I really think I could accomplish anything in life without God's help?

  • A History of Platt National Park

    Sulphur Springs, Chickasaw Nation, Indian Territory, was established about 1890 in the foothills of the Arbuckle Mountain range of southern Oklahoma. The community was situated around thirty natural springs of mineral and fresh water. The town quickly became known as a place of "healing waters" and tourist flocked in from around the country. By 1900 there were enough boarding houses and hotels to accommodate one thousand tourists. The little frontier town had electric light and telephone companies. In preparation for statehood and the allotments of Indian land, Congress passed the Curtis Act in 1898. One of the provisions of this act was that each town of two hundred people or more were to be surveyed and withheld from allotments. Each survey team was supervised by an Indian Inspector to assure that no more land was taken for the town than was necessary. The Indian Inspector assigned to survey Sulphur Springs was named Joseph Swords. He fell in love with the area and petitioned his uncle, U. S. Senator Orville H. Platt to sponsor a bill in Congress to reserve the springs and create a Federal Reservation for the protection of the springs. After a two- year battle, on July 1, 1902, Congress passed the necessary legislation to create the Sulphur Springs Reservation. Joseph Swords was appointed superintendent of the new park and was ordered to remove the town of 1,100 people and the buildings from inside the park boundary. Nine house moving companies began removing the buildings from the reservation in 1903 and the new park was ready to develop. In 1906, the name of the Reservation was changed to Platt National Park in honor of the recently deceased Senator Orville H. Platt. This book tells the true story of the growing pains of the new town of Sulphur Springs and the development of the resources of Platt National Park.

  • Partial Verdicts: Essays on Law and Life

    In these illuminating and often eloquent essays, a practicing lawyer with almost thirty-five years of experience explores various aspects of his profession. But this book is not for lawyers only. It does for law what Lewis Thomas's Lives of a Cell did for biology. It uses a particular discipline as a springboard for provocative and entertaining musings of a general nature. Rather than narrow, technical discussions, these delightfully written essays are a free play of the imagination - by turns serious, whimsical, meditative, witty - that allows our minds to dance with ideas about law and its links with many other subjects. Kornstein's four previous books have drawn warm praise. The Wall Street Journal called one "a book that deftly and lovingly discusses the law and those who build their careers on it." "Thorough and lucid," said the Times Literary Supplement of another. The Journal of Legal History described how the author's "enthusiasm positively leaps from the page." According to Choice, Kornstein's influential book about Shakespeare and the law (Kill All the Lawyers?) "stands as a testimonial to cultural literacy at its best. To have a [book] as carefully researched and gracefully written as this emerge from a literate lawyer's pen is modestly reassuring about the future of culture itself." Daniel J. Kornstein is a founding partner of Kornstein Veisz Wexler & Pollard, LLP, a law firm in New York City. In addition to a busy law practice, he writes frequently on law-related topics with, according to the Yale Journal of Law and Humanities, "the distinctive voice of an American lawyer [who] speaks to our era in the polished cadences of an experienced advocate."

    What critics say about "... Geese vs. Swans...""... corporate America is being denied the potential benefits of public relations, of which they may be unaware, because of the travesties committed in its name by communicators who euphemistically see themselves as counselors, arousing the ire of a wise and experienced John Budd who challenges CEOs to raise the bar on advisors, introducing the role of corporate public diplomacy."Chester Burger, founder/chairman, PRSA's College of Fellows*;Founder/chairman, Chester Burger Co."In crisp and forceful and pungent language John Budd contrasts the proper goals of the craft of PR with the realities of current performance... and urges communication consigliores to change their ways and avoid even the appearance of spin... but he's not sanguine this is either feasible or possible."Robert Hogan, former chairman, psychology department, University of Tulsa; author of Personality and the Fate of Organizations"This brief book is bold, iconoclastic, and on the mark.

  • Ethical Dilemmas in Psychotherapy: Positive Approaches to Decision Making

    New and experienced psychotherapists alike can find themselves overwhelmed by an ethical quandary where there doesn't seem to be an easy solution. This book presents positive ethics as a means to overcome such ethical challenges. The positive approach focuses on not just avoiding negative consequences, but reaching the best possible outcomes for both the psychotherapist and the client.

    The authors outline a clear decision-making process that is based on three practical strategies:

    -ethical decision-making models to make the most ethical decision in a situation where two ethical principles conflict,
    -the quality enhancement model for reducing the risk of treatment failure, and
    - ethics acculturation model to help therapists incorporate personal ethics into their professional roles.

    Throughout the decision-making process, psychotherapists are encouraged to follow four basic guidelines:

    -Focus on overarching ethical principles
    -Consider intuitive, emotional, and other nonrational factors
    -Accept that some problems have elusive solutions
    -Solicit input from colleagues and consultation groups

    Numerous vignettes illustrate how to apply positive ethics to many different ethical challenges that psychotherapists will likely encounter in practice.

    A contemporary novel inspired by a true story, it depicts the life of Kate, from the unusual circumstances surrounding her birth through her painful childhood days of sibling rejection. As time passes, she experiences her glance with first-love only to have it quickly removed from her by an older brother who insists that the object of her affection, an-eighteen-year-old gentleman, is "just too old for her." While trying to cope with this loss, Kate experiences another loss that devastates her. Out of rebellion and anger, Kate sets out to make better memories that'll help her forget the bad ones. This pursuit sends her into the waiting arms of a forty-year-old married man working for her school. Concluding she deserves nothing better, she yields to his advances while secretly looking forward to shocking her brother. She imagines how he'll feel when he discovers her hot romance in progress. Certainly, since he thought eighteen was "too old," he'd say a forty-year-old was "an antique." Before long their torrid affair is well known throughout the community. It becomes the town talk and an even hotter topic once Kate becomes pregnant and drops out of school. Only her quick-thinking abilities provide maneuvers keeping her lover out of prison and allowing the affair to continue as it climbs the heights of raw passion and experiences the gambit of turmoil. The story traces Kate's return to school and the hostilies she face while struggling to graduate and go on to college. A gifted learner, Kate excels academically and in her involvement in school activities, which acts as a catalyst for a less hostile environment as she continues her role of sterling student by day, mother and lover by night. The work reveals how Kate successfully transfers her reputation from scandalous to a repected professional woman.

  • Pedalling to Panama

    Clive quit his job as an accountant to fulfil a dream of cycling through Mexico and Central America. Pedalling through impressive scenery he ran out of water, suffered eye injury and had to get the bike fixed after a breakdown. In the heat of Mexico he frequently needed to stop for refreshment. This created ideal opportunities to chat to local people. He found the charm of Mexicans arresting, and their tales add spice to a colourful portrait of life in Mexico today. He chronicles the build up to a festival in San Crist?bal, where he spent nearly three weeks. At times Clive had doubts about his ability to carry on. A strand of optimism runs through the narrative, which helps him see problems not as obstacles but as something waiting for a solution. From Mexico he continued cycling through Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama. Civil wars made Central America a no-go area for tourists for twenty years. There is eye-arresting poverty seldom seen in Europe. Now it is changing. Clive's story tells of warm and hospitable people who are happy to talk about their experiences and views of the world. Even the police buck the popular image, as he finally arrived on the banks of the Panama Canal with a police escort, concluding in style a 7,000 kilometre journey through a little known but fascinating part of the world."

  • Modern Art

    There are many different kinds of art. The very definition of art is to cause or create a reaction. Modern Art is not exactly the most conventional, ethical, or down right moral way of presenting one's expression--that particular expression being the use of the human form. The bone structure, the pearlescent gleam of the spine, the spattering swirl of intestines pink and blue, glittering ivory teeth when pulled out one by one makes for an exemplary piece of unique design, all created by the sheer genius behind the blade. You say mutilation? No, it is creation! Skin looks good on one's body, yes, but it looks even better as a lamp shade, or a coaster. Now that's putting your heart into your work. And when someone decides to use the human body for display, an eye ball here, a muscle there, all sorts of creativity can come about! Art causes a reaction, yes? Fear no art.

You know, that horrible 'sinking' feeling when the remainder of last week's wages disappeared at the turn of a card or the drop of a ball on the roulette wheel.Or maybe it didn't happen at the casino - maybe you lost it at the bookies' shop. It was all looking so good at one point; the horse you backed had what seemed to be an unassailable lead going into the final furlong, and you were beginning to count your winnings. Then, from nowhere, an outside shot comes steaming home and pips your horse right on the line. BANG!! Gone, just like that - not just what would have been a handsome win, but with it the stake money that you could barely afford to lay out in the first instance. You had sworn in earnest that you weren't going to go through that whole palaver yet again, the one where excuses have to be thought up. And fast. Excuses and lies to the wife as to why you can't afford to take her out to that smart restaurant for a treat. Excuses and lies to explain away the unpaid phone bill. When all is said and done, is it all really worth it? Ask yourself seriously. I am a regular kind of guy who got caught up in precisely this kind of struggle to quit. My story initially charts how I got in with a group of people, in my late teens and early twenties, who were quite simply addicted to gambling, and how I soon fell into the same trap. I then go on to explain how I went about 'Slaying The Devil' ! And it wasn't easy. . not by any stretch of the imagination.

  • Letters to Kaia: Adventures of A Danish Boy In England During WWII and After

    A grandfather describes his boyhood experiences of World War II Britain - with its bombs and rationing, evacuation and separation, "doodle-bugs" and rockets - to a grand-daughter currently of the same age (ten years), as he was at the end of the war in 1945, the midpoint of the decade spanned by this book. The story begins with the author on vacation by the Danish seaside with his mother and infant brother in September 1939 as War was being declared by Britain and France on Nazi Germany. They escape by flying back to England just before the German invasion of Denmark. The family endures the London Blitz until he, his mother and brother are evacuated to a village in northern England to escape more bombing (which, it turns out, they fail to do). Throughout, young Michael has many adventures, which "Grandpa" Michael relates to his granddaughter Kaia in England. Brought together as a continuous narrative, we see that Michael regarded his environment as "normal" - that children brought up in a war zone accept the state of war as normal! Immediate post-war Britain in its grey, austere disillusion is accepted by the growing child who is more intrigued by the experiences of his Danish cousins during the German Occupation with secret agents and the Resistance. Why is Denmark awash in dairy products and ample meats when people in Britain - supposedly a victor of the war - struggle on with niggardly food allowances? This account is unique, not so much in it's description of a child's memories of the violence of war in England (and his acceptance of it), but with the counter-point of his cousins' experiences in a Denmark subject not to bombs but to the presence of an inimical, occupying force.

  • Cuantas Piscas?: A Latino's Lonely Journey to Success

    The book is a very candid and personal account of a Latino's journey out of poverty. In the book the author shares wonderful stories of his growing -up days as well as stories of his clients after he began his career as a human service worker. He joyously shares his family with the reader and vividly describes the people that had an influence on his life. The book includes pictures as well as poems which contribute greatly to our understanding of the author's thoughts and feelings. He begins by explaining the title to the book. Cuantas Piscas?, he tells us, was a line that young men used to start a conversation with girls picking cotton in the same field. The words have a double meaning to him as they also express how much one is capable of accomplishing, or what is one's potential? It begs the character question, what kind of a person are you? Born to Mexican immigrant parents, the author describes the obstacles that he faced as he chased the illusive American Dream and as he attempted to assimilate into a culture that was not yet ready to welcome him. He describes his academic as well as his spiritual journey and the challenges that he faced as he tried to make sense of a world full of contradictions and confusion. Because of this, Noe Lara shares with us that he gained a better appreciation for his rich Mexican culture and his family's religious beliefs. This, he explains, had a great deal of influence on the way he pursued success.

  • One Solitary Life: Book III ? The Christ Epoch

    In the ever recurring passage of the ages, as life, civilizations, cultures and humanity's awareness have evolved, a message has been eternally whispered in man's ear; a continuum of Divine Revelation has unfolded essential to the next pending chapter in the Book of Life and bearing a profound vision of mankind's spiritual heritage. The message contained in this Ageless Wisdom has been one of promise and hope, of a future fulfillment and the possibility of attaining an ecstatic, unified state called Heaven, Nirvana, Mecca or Paradise awaiting mankind at the end of his journey. The Divine Knowledge (Gnosis) explored in the trilogy, One Solitary Life, embodies the coordinates of the path of man's evolution toward divinity, leading to the attainment of man's Spiritual Legacy; union with the Divine.In the first two books of this trilogy we have explored our origins and the nature of the universe we share. Now we turn to the ultimate quest for the enlightened awareness of the Christ nature dormant within each of us. Using the New Testament as allegory for this quest we live the story of Jesus with him, examining the journey through his eyes. What is the meaning of the virgin birth and the visit of the three Magi? Why three temptations in the wilderness and what were the real tests involved? Why did Jesus bring Peter James and John with him to the mount of the Transfiguration? What were the underlying meanings of the mantras spoken on the cross? Did he really die for our sins, or live to show us the "way"? The answers will surprise you and they could transform the meaning of this scripture for all time in the hearts of men and women of faith everywhere."The Christ Epoch" is the quintessential exploration of the mystical Path of Light personified by Christ. It delves deep into the symbolic meanings of the events depicted in the gospel accounts of the New Testament, revealing the nature of the path before each human being and the perfected state of human consciousness.

  • A Maverick's Odyssey: One Doctor's Quest to Conquer Disease

    Can we quickly alter our health care system so that we can discover new medical breakthrough therapies and make them rapidly available to patients? The answer to this critical question is a resounding "Yes!" Dr. Stephen L. DeFelice has put forth his creative solution to this critical problem through conferences, talks, articles, books and the efforts of his Foundation for Innovation in Medicine, FIM. His solution has yet to catch on so its tremendous promise remains to be fulfilled. But things may be about to change dramatically. Dr. DeFelice's answer seems simple at first-perhaps too simple. It's called "Doctornauts," the term he coined to describe physicians who can more easily volunteer for clinical studies than the rest of us. These physician-volunteers can be the subjects in clinical trials that the general public cannot participate in because of legal and ethical concerns. Doctornauts has the potential to help patients all over America--immediately and immensely. This book tells the story of Dr. DeFelice and of his life-long passion, not only to prevent and treat illness, but also, to conquer disease through his innovative approach to increasing medical discovery and improving medical treatment. Perhaps the single most important aspect of the Doctornaut concept becomes evident when it is understood who it will most help-you!

  • Y Pensabamos que Eramos los mas Arrechos!: Como Hacernos Ricos O Ahogarnos En El Petroleo

    Y pensabamos que eramos los mas arrechos!: como hacernos ricos o ahogarnos en el petroleo es una afrenta explosiva que desafia la esencia y la responsabilidad de la sociedad venezolana. Un controversial paseo por la Venezuela que muchos no se molestan en ver, bien sea porque no ofrece ninguna ganancia politica o porque resulta dolorosa, bochornosa y dificil de procesar. Cuenta la historia de un capitalismo fallido y sus consecuencias, la inherente ineficiencia y mediocridad criolla; revelando la mentalidad conservadora que arropa la mente y los corazones de los venezolanos. Un llamado critico en un mar de ovejas ideologicas que van desde la extrema izquierda hasta la extrema derecha, idolatrando individualidades, en vez de brindar proyectos concretos de desarrollo. Vasquez engloba cada consejo en su libro, desafiando cualquier ideologia establecida. El libro posee una mentalidad abierta y flexible, mientras exhibe un estilo y analisis maleducado, burlista y vulgar; hacia tipicos puntos de vistas observados diariamente en el discurso politico contemporaneo venezolano.

Capitulos de lectura esencial, incluyen: Marx como un critico anti-venezolano de Bolivar, sorprendentes revelaciones sobre la pobreza en el imperio norteamericano, Japon, Francia y Alemania, la "fuga de cerebros" tanto de paises subdesarrollados como de naciones desarrolladas, las verdaderas razones detras del exito popular del dictador bielorruso Aleksandr Lukashenko, la discusion sobre la educacion y las libertades sexuales en Venezuela, asi como la predisposicion que posee el venezolano promedio a ser cochino y a "chulearse" al Estado, en vez de convertirse en una fuerza productiva a tono con otras economias, no solamente de naciones industrializadas, pero tambien economias emergentes, que salieron de la pobreza ejecutando medidas economicas y sociales no convencionales, en un mundo rapidamente globalizado.

  • Teaching Dance: The Spectrum of Styles

    Teaching dance is an activity that is both a rigorous discipline which involves many years of study and a deeply personal expression. Throughout the years, from the time I first encountered the Spectrum, I've realized more and more what an amazing pedagogical tool it is for dance as an art form. The Spectrum will help dance teachers address many issues, including the following:. For the beginning teacher, "Did I meet my objectives? How can I judge how well I did?". For the advanced teacher, "How can I encourage initiative and make students more self-motivated?". For the college or university teacher, "How do I help my colleagues in other disciplines (and administration) understand dance as an academic discipline? What do I put in my tenure and promotion portfolio?". For teachers with adult beginner classes, "How do I introduce my adult learners to basic movement material without 'teaching down' to them, to recognize their cognitive level and maturity?". For teachers in private studios, "How can I teach so that I reach every student, keep students coming back for more classes, and thus keep enrollment (and my business) up?". When teaching large classes, "How can I provide feedback for every student in the class and still keep the class moving?" Whether you are facing a class of students for the first time or are an experienced teacher, whether you teach children or adults, whether in a recreational setting or college, you will find useful information here. Supported by illustrations, examples, sample lesson plans, criteria sheets, activity suggestions and discussion questions, this work is designed for use as a textbook for student teachers and a resource for the professional teacher. It includes practical tips and application suggestions, with additional material downloadable from the author's website.

    "I am proud to know Dr. E. Bruce Heilman as a Marine, educator and friend. He is a man of great character and the embodiment of our Core Values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. Drawing "inspiration" from his rural upbringing and his Marine Corps service as a sergeant during World War II, Dr. Heilman's career in higher education and his successes as president and chancellor of a college and university are testimony to what determination and motivation can do. His leadership as a member and chairman of the boards for both the Marine Corps University and the Marine Military Academy, combined with his service on the boards of the Marine Heritage Foundation and the Marine Association have dramatically improved our Corps and speak volumes to his legacy as a leader, educator and Marine Corps visionary. He is a founder and member of the Commandant's Circle in the Museum of the Marines, and remains active in Marine Corps aff airs. In summary, I can offer Dr. Heilman no greater compliment than to say he is a great American, a tremendous family man, and an outstanding Marine!

  • African-American Men and Their Daughters: Living Out the Father-Daughter Drama

    This book traces the lives of the author and other African-American women she interviewed about their African-American fathers. The author states that the most powerful relationship an African-American woman will ever have with a male is the one she has or doesn?t have with her father. Whether present or absent Houston-Little asserts: fathers impact their daughter?s lives in ways that sometimes defy description. If young African-American girls grow up with a loving, involved father in her life, the young girl seems to do well and lead a balanced life. She doesn?t appear to be haunted by serious emotional and physical illnesses. While on the other hand, when a young girl does not have any relationship with her father or one that she perceives is less than adequate, serious issues may arise. Often a relationship that is perceived as less than adequate is as devastating as not having a relationship with her father at all. If a young girl?s relationship with her father is non-existent or less than adequate, it is at this point that the ?drama? appears to begin. ?Drama? refers to a series of actions, reactions that the young girl, adolescent, soon to be adult female initiates and responds to a result of her perception. Perceptions that lead to ?drama? are that the young girl in question believes her father does not care/love her. She may also believe that she can?t trust anyone, especially men. No matter how hard she tries, she may also believe she?ll never be good enough in any tasks she undertakes. These different ?scenes?, frames of reference affect the young girl and all those with whom she interacts. It?s almost as though the young girl has a script from which she takes her cues. Often no one with whom she interacts even has a clue that a script even exists. This kind of miscuing or absence of cues for the unsuspecting participants, friend, husband, lover, son, professional associate, more often than not, leads to conflictual

  • The Words of Jesus

    The following are selected more especially as "Words for the Weary" -- healing leaves for the wounded spirit falling from the Tree of Life. Jesus was divinely qualified for this special office of speaking "many and comfortable words." "The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I might know how to speak a Word in Season to him that is weary."

    Let us, like the disciple of Patmos, turn to hear the voice that speaks to us, saying, "I wait for the Lord, my soul doth wait, and in His Word do I hope." Eighteen hundred years have elapsed since these "words" were uttered. With tones of unaltered and unchanged affection, they are still echoed from the inner sanctuary -- they come this day fresh as they were spoken, from the lips of Him whose memorial to all time is this: "that same Jesus."

    Reader, seek to realise, in meditating on them, the simple but solemn truth -- "Christ speaks to me!" Surely nothing can be more soothing with which to close your eyes on your nightly pillow, or to carry with you in the morning out to the duties (or, it may be, the trials and sorrows) of the day, than -- "A WORD OF JESUS."

  • Nuclear Iran: A Prelude to WWIII

    In a world where humanity has so far failed to learn any positive lessons from two devastating world wars, where trillions of US dollars are being spent on armaments and new inventions to kill, where terrorism has been gaining control over reason, constructive dialogue and diplomacy, sheer madness seeks to control and run international relations.While a group of states attempt through globalization, international organizations, democratic theories and practices to establish an international order based on repudiating warfare as the mean to resolve conflicts whether economic, social, political or ideological, others have enlisted themselves in fundamentalist, fanatic and terrorist armies, to establish their new world order. They call their ideology divine and sacred, led by God himself, who, at this time is filled with anger and vengeance against His creation because it opted to follow a secular and democratic way of life. He is willing through terror, fear and unlimited oppression to destroy two-thirds of that creation. This cultural-religious conflict has become a reality formed of scattered groups of fundamentalists led by Iranian claims, that God is sending His messenger, Al-Mahdi, to perform the task and impose a divinely run world order.

  • Demystifying Wall Street: Shedding a Little Light on the Bull!

    This is the book that Wall Street doesn't want you to read. It's a book about my experiences, my insights, and my take on the brokerage business. As a top-producing Wall Street stockbroker for 20 years at some of its largest firms, I had the opportunity to see everything - the junkets, the incentives, the sales strategies, the product preferences, and most of all how customers are treated. Demystifying Wall Street begins with some of my personal experiences, how I went from being a car salesman (and musician) to joining one of Wall Street's biggest brokerages. And then it explains how I discovered that car dealerships and brokerages operate in very much the same way: by incentives. More compelling, the book reveals a perspective that is often lost on consumers: Salesmen, whether of stocks or cars, are paid to sell products. They work, at the end of the day, for the manufacturers of those products and therefore their interests are never aligned with buyers. Those buyers on Wall Street are you. This is the flaw in the Wall Street business model that is at the crux of Demystifying Wall Street. Despite the bull, the advertisements, and all of the lip service, stockbrokers can never be the trusted advisers they portend to be. If they were, and put clients' interests ahead of their own, they'd be broke. Yet, the average income of stockbrokers is several hundred thousand dollars and can stretch up into millions of dollars. I explain how this then translates into a lifestyle trap for Wall Street stockbrokers, how they have to produce, produce, produce, to keep up their means. It shows how bigger and better EVERYTHING is rewarded by brokerage firm management. Managers want brokers to get nicer cars, buy bigger houses. They hold out carrots at the office too - corner offices, secretaries, and trips - all in a design to keep brokers in the firm's nest. Rife with information, including charts, tables, and graphs, Demystifying Wall Street is meant to be used as resource guide, a resource guide, mind you, that tells a story. My personal experiences and anecdotes are meant to grab readers' attention and engage them. But the book itself is full of easy-to-understand financial lessons.

  • Male, Female: The Evolution of Human Sex Differences

    Why do girls tend to earn better grades in school than boys? Why are men still far more likely than women to earn degrees in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics? And why are men on average more likely to be injured in accidents and fights than women? These and many other questions are the subject of both informal investigation in the media and formal investigation in academic and scientific circles. In his landmark book Male, Female: The Evolution of Human Sex Differences, author David Geary provided the first comprehensive evolutionary model to explain human sex differences. Using the principles of sexual selection such as female choice and male-male competition, the author systematically reviewed and discussed the evolution of sex differences and their expression throughout the animal kingdom, as a means of not just describing but explaining the same process in Homo sapiens. Now, over ten years since the first edition, Geary has completed a massive update, expansion and theoretical revision of his classic text.

  • Fear God and the Shadow of the Muslim Sword

    Fear God and the Shadow of the Muslim Sword" is a study of Islam and the men leading it in the twenty-first century. I am neither a preacher nor a politician. I am an author caught up in a sensitive subject most secular societies are unfamiliar with. This book is a rational explanation without bias. It is based on both historical fact and books written by modern Muslim leaders themselves, it is not an attack on the religion based on personal agenda.

    My research told a different story than what has become common on the editorial pages of American newspapers and contradictory to what the leaders of the American Muslim community are saying. The fact however is, that, with limited exceptions, the term moderate is not compatible when used in a sentence with the word Islam, except to describe what Islam is not!

    Challenge me if you will, but put rhetoric aside and research your own beliefs first.

    "Islam is a revolutionary doctrine and system that overturns governments. It seeks to overturn the whole universal social order ___ and to establish its structure anew ___ Islam seeks the world. It is not satisfied by a piece of land but demands the whole universe ___ Jihad is at the same time offensive and defensive ___ The Islamic party does not hesitate to utilize the means of war to implement its goal."

  • Work Ethics and the Generation Gap!: Which Ethical Track Are You On?

    Work Ethics And The Generation Gap! Many employers are noticing a pessimistic difference in today's generation. We are all asking what happened to responsibility, motivation, having positive values, and integrity along with wanting and expecting more of today's youth and ourselves. Of course, there are many who have that excellent work ethic already. There are those who are workaholics and may need more balance in their lives, and maybe manage their time more wisely, which is also covered in this book. It sounds like there may be some questions.

  • Why Am I Blue?: A Story About Being Yourself

    The Blue Frog looked at his reflection in the water and asked, "Why am I blue?"
    The Green Frog didn't know.
    Dandelion had no answer.
    And Fish? No idea either!


    Being different from one's peers can be hard. We all want to be part of a group and to be accepted and loved by others. We might struggle with whether to embrace our differences or hide them in order to fit in.

    In this story, the Blue Frog wonders why he is blue, and not green like other frogs. He feels confused, sad, and different, and seeks to answer the question "why am I blue?" Eventually hearing a simple, but profound explanation, the Blue Frog begins to embrace his blueness and accept being different than his friends.

    Includes a Note to Parents and Caregivers by Gayle E. Pitman, PhD, that discusses how children experience differences throughout childhood and how adults can guide children toward an understanding and acceptance of differences and similarities they will face throughout life.

    From the Note to Parents and Caregivers:

    Some differences can be a source of positive self-esteem for children. They could have qualities that are cool, quirky, and respected by others. For example, if a child is especially talented at something, like art, music, or athletics, they might feel respected by their peers, even though their talent sets them apart to some extent. Moreover, if this quality is nurtured by family members and teachers and through extracurricular activities, these differences can enhance self-esteem in a powerful way.

    Differences don't always work that way, though. Some differences involve characteristics like disability, gender identity, or race, qualities that have been used throughout history to justify inequality and mistreatment. If differences aren't valued by the individual or by society, a few things can happen...

  • Gender Differences in Prenatal Substance Exposure

    Adverse effects of prenatal exposure to neurotoxins, including cocaine, alcohol, marijuana, and lead, are well documented and range from initial growth deficits to later cognitive and behavioral problems. Exciting new research has found that there are gender differences in these sequelae resulting in different outcomes for males and females.

  • What to Do When Mistakes Make You Quake: A Kid's Guide to Accepting Imperfection

    2015 ForeWord Indies Finalist, Juvenile Nonfiction

    "This empowering book will kids help kids build confidence in their abilities and increase their willingness to try new things and challenge themselves. Highly recommended."--A Mighty Girl Pick of the Day

    Explorers investigate places they have never been before. These explorers might take a while to make their discoveries. They might have trouble understanding their maps. They might make wrong turns. They might need to start their expedition all over again!

    If explorers could not accept their mistakes and keep going, they might never make any discoveries! Does this sound like you? If you have trouble accepting mistakes, if you try to be right all the time, or if you worry about being less than the best, this book is for you!

    It's natural to be afraid of making mistakes. You may be afraid of saying the wrong thing during a meeting or getting lost when traveling in a new city, for example. Kids can think this way, too. In fact, some kids are so afraid of making mistakes that they may hold back from challenges and blame others for their errors. A kid may forgo an activity for fear of not excelling. Or, a student may fail to complete assignments on time due to erasing too much, rewriting, or overdoing the task in some way. Kids who worry about being wrong or making mistakes may try to control situations to ensure their success, blame others for their failings, see themselves in a negative light, or be critical in general. They may have trouble making decisions for fear of making the wrong one. It's exhausting trying to avoid mistakes--for you and for your child.

    What to Do When Mistakes Make You Quake guides children and their parents through the emotions underlying a fear of making mistakes using strategies and techniques based on cognitive-behavioral principles. This interactive self-help book is the complete resource for educating, motivating, and empowering children to cope with mistakes -- so they can explore new territory without fear! Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind:

    • Emphasize effort more than outcome.
    • Let your child make mistakes--don't do your child's work for him.
    • Model self-acceptance and lose gracefully.
    • Comment on why you're okay when you make a mistake.
    • Demonstrate a sense of humor.
    • Balance work with play.
    • Let your child's achievement be his own--don't measure yourself by your child's accomplishments (or mistakes).

    This book is part of the Magination Press What-to-Do Guides for Kids(R) series and includes an "Introduction to Parents and Caregivers." What-to-Guides for Kids(R) are interactive self-help books designed to guide 6-12 year olds and their parents through the cognitive-behavioral techniques most often used in the treatment of various psychological concerns. Engaging, encouraging, and easy to follow, these books educate, motivate, and empower children to work towards change.

  • A Diary from Dixie

    Mary Chesnut kept her diary from early in 1861, just before the Civil War began, to shortly after the end of the war, in 1865. Though not a day-by-day account of the conflict, the diary gives an up-close-and-personal view of this critical period in American history. Her commentary on the conversations and events of her day reveals a keen awareness of the oppression to which women--lack or white, slave or free--were subjected during that period. While she would not consider herself a feminist, her diary reveals sensibilities and concerns that place her far ahead of her time. The wife of a Confederate general, Mary Chesnut moved in the elite circles of Southern society and had a keen interest in politics. Her diary is an important historic document and, because of her sharp wit and often irreverent attitude, a fascinating window into Southern society of the time.

  • The Boys' Life of Abraham Lincoln

    Abraham Lincoln's forefathers were pioneers--men who left their homes to open up the wilderness and make the way plain for others to follow them. For one hundred and seventy years ever since the first American Lincoln came from England to Massachusetts in 1638 they had been moving slowly westward as new settlements were made in the forest.

  • Lud-In-The-Mist

    "The single most beautiful, solid, unearthly, and unjustifiably forgotten novel of the twentieth century ... a little golden miracle of a book."--Neal Gaiman

    Hope Mirrlees penned Lud-in-the-Mist--a classic fantasy novel--in 1926. When the town of Lud severs its ties to a Faerie land, an illegal trade in fairy fruit develops. But eating the fruit has horrible and wondrous effects.

    "Helen Hope Mirrlees was born in England in 1887. Mirrlees was a close friend of such literary lights as Walter de la Mare, T.S. Eliot, Andre Gide, Katharine Mansfield, Lady Ottoline Morrell, Bertrand Russell, Gertrude Stein, Virginia Woolf, and William Butler Yeats. Under her own name, she published three novels: Madeleine -- One of Life's Jansenists (1921); The Counterplot (1924); and her 1926 classic fantasy Lud-in-the-Mist, which has acknowledged inspiration to the likes of Neil Gaiman, Mary Gentle, Elizabeth Hand, Johanna Russ, and Tim Powers."--SF Site

    "Hope Mirrlees' writing, usually underrated, moves between gently crazy humour, poetic snatches, real menace, and real poignancy."--The Encyclopedia of Fantasy

  • In the City of David: A Story of the First Christmas

    In the City of David is the story of Samuel, a wealthy innkeeper whose life is dominated by selfishness and greed. His material blessings cannot take away the anger and resentment born of personal tragedies, and he lives in fear of future misfortunes. It is also the story of Nathan, a shepherd whose poverty and physical shortcomings cause him to doubt the value and meaning of his own life. And it is the story of Hannah, the beautiful young daughter of a shepherd whose happy life is disrupted by her engagement to a man she doesn't even like, much less love. Through the eyes of these and other characters ancient Bethlehem comes to life. As the story unfolds we see the daily struggles of the people, some unique to that time but others similar to the struggles we ourselves face today. But in the midst of suffering and fear an amazing event occurs. "I have come to bring you glad tidings," the angel said. "Today in the city of David a savior, the Messiah, has been born. You will find an infant lying in a manger." With those words God's messenger proclaims the fulfillment of His promise to Israel. The birth of that child changed Bethlehem and the people living there. In time it would change the world.

  • Case Formulation in Emotion-Focused Therapy: Co-Creating Clinical Maps for Change

    This book presents a step-by-step process for constructing an emotion-focused case formulation, ready for use with clients. Emotion-focused therapy case formulation focuses on the client's narrative content (the stories they tell) as well as emotional processing (how the client feels). By attending to the interaction between these two things and paying particular attention to the painful emotion underlying the presenting problem, therapists can make moment-to-moment decisions about how to proceed in therapy. Case examples apply the case formulation method to a cross-section of clinical disorders, including depression, anxiety, trauma, and eating disorders.

    Features:

    -An approach for understanding client problems and planning interventions.

    -Case studies representing a cross-section of clinical disorders, including depression, anxiety, trauma, and eating disorders.

  • APA Handbook of Behavior Analysis

    Behavior analysis emerged from the nonhuman laboratories of B. F. Skinner, Fred Keller, Nate Schoenfeld, Murray Sidman, James Dinsmoor, Richard Herrnstein, Nate Azrin, and others who pioneered experimental preparations designed to do one thing -- find orderly relations between environment and behavior. This bottom-up approach to a natural science of behavior yielded a set of behavioral principles that proved orderly and replicable across subjects, laboratories, and species. By the 1960s, behavior analysts began translating these principles into interventions for institutionalized humans characterized by impoverished repertoires of adaptive behavior. When these interventions proved successful in replacing problem- with adaptive-behavior, the field of Applied Behavior Analysis was born. Over the last 50 years the field of behavior analysis has grown substantially both in the number of practicing behavior analysts and the range of behavior to which behavioral principles have been applied. Today the laboratory study of basic principles of behavior continues to expand our understanding of behavior and to inform the treatment of disorders ranging from autism to substance abuse. The present volumes continue this inductive translational approach to the science of behavior analysis by providing overview and in- depth chapters spanning the breadth of behavior analysis. Volume I provides comprehensive coverage of the logic, clinical utility, and methods of single-case research designs. Chapters walk the reader through the design, data collection, and data analysis phases and are appropriate for students, researchers, and clinicians concerned with best practice. Volume I also provides an overview of the experimental analysis of behavior, and chapters reviewing some of the most important areas of contemporary laboratory research in behavior analysis. Topics covered include memory, attention, choice, behavioral neuroscience, and behavioral pharmacolo

  • The Illusion of Time

    Could the Big Bang Theory be flawed? Berossa's Illusion of Time is driven by the question of why gravity affects time. In a model that shows the rate of time evolving with the age of an atom, the author shows that purely physical changes in atoms will account for red shifts seen in distant cosmological objects. This is based simply on differences between clock rates then and now, and such red shifts are virtually indistinguishable from those associated with galaxies receding in bulk flows in a Doppler expansion. In short, Berossa's thesis suggests that "Doppler velocities" of galaxies found in the Big Bang Theory may be largely an illusion. Berossa's extended thought-experiment also produces an elegant explanation of how the atom might work. It eliminates the need for the atomic strong and weak forces to explain how naturally repelling particles co-exist within atoms. Time and gravity are linked fundamentally to light and mass. He offers the reader an intellectual ride through the realm of physics that is not for the faint-hearted.

  • The Expert Expert Witness: More Maxims and Guidelines for Testifying in Court

    Psychologists, psychiatrists, and other mental health professionals may be experts in their respective fields, but this expertise does not easily translate to effective courtroom testimony. Even veteran expert witnesses can encounter new challenges in these high-pressure situations, especially during a cross-examination where every statement and gesture can be scrutinized by an attorney searching for ways to dispute the expert's credibility and opinions.

    For more than two decades, Stanley L. Brodsky has taught expert witnesses simple and practical strategies they can use to negotiate challenges in the courtroom and give strong, effective testimony. In this thorough update to his classic guide, Brodsky and his equally prolific coauthor, Thomas G. Gutheil, continue to provide sage, humorous advice that will put expert witnesses at ease and allow them to comport themselves with poise and confidence throughout direct and cross-examination. Short chapters punctuated by memorable maxims draw from the authors' expansive personal experiences, as well as research and stories from other expert expert witnesses, to create this must-have resource that will inform and entertain expert witnesses for many years.

  • Friday's Heroes: Willie Pep Remembers...

    This book is about some ghetto kids of the 1930's and 40's who became famous because they learned how to fight better than anyone else. We call them boxers and they came from the neighborhoods of New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit and other cities. The popularity of Television in America began to grow in the late 1940's and the televised Friday Night fights played a big part in that growth. Boxers became superstars on television. The Friday Night fights were broadcast weekly by Gillete and Pabst Blue Ribbon from the late 1940's into the early 1960's. Along with "The Milton Berle Show" the Friday Night fights helped to sell millions of television sets during this time as families and friends gathered together to watch their heroes. FRIDAY'S HEROES is also about a young man from the Italian section of Hartford, Connecticut who went on to become "One of the Greatest Fighters" in the history of the sport. His name was Willie Pep. This "Will O' the Wisp" was World Featherweight Champion from 1942-1951 and campaigned for twenty-six years.Finally, this is a book about such people as Sugar Ray Robinson, Rocky Graziano, Chico Vejar, Kid Gavilan, Joey Giardello, Billy Graham, Rocky Marciano, Ezzard Charles, Joe Louis, Jake LaMotta, and others who are no longer the ghetto kids making a living from boxing, but middle-aged men with the "roar of the crowd" behind them. Today, the athlete - never to be confused with a boxer - is a celebrated figure. Yet as boxers these men seemed to have a different kind of respectability in our society, perhaps because they had to fight for a living. Nevertheless, no warrior that stalked the arena was more gallant than these kids. Willie Pep Remembers...Friday's Heroes is a book about people, these people.

  • Phileas's Fortune: A Story About Self-Expression

    Nautilus Gold Award Winner, Children's Illustrated

    Cherry...Ruby...Chimes. How can such simple words mean so much?

    Phileas' Fortune is a book about values, about the important things we want our children to learn: what really matters in life. This book is unique because its lessons sit softly on the beauty of the text and illustrations in a story about the power of words and self-expression. On one level, it is a poetic evocation of how "less is more" and how what is in a child's heart is more valuable than anything money can buy. Phileas demonstrates that heartfelt communication and human openness is more meaningful than showing off or bullying. Values education is most effective at younger ages and this book speaks to the young child directly and simply, without lecture. On its deeper level, therefore, Phileas' Fortune is about positive developmental characteristics we can teach our children -- of caring for others, of being honest, of being modest.

    Phileas's Fortune is a sweet tale that reveals the power of words and of caring for others, of being honest and modest. What Phileas says is not nearly as important as how he says it. When Phileas expresses his love for Cybele, his humble words carry more weight than the more expensive, fancy words of a rich bully. And in the end, when Phileas expresses himself with sincerity and heart, Phileas finds more fortune than money could ever buy.

  • The Gardener

  • Who Goes to the Door and Then What

    This book is the first and only comprehensive work designed and written for organizations that may face the daunting task of notifying and supporting families if a person dies, is seriously injured or is missing. The book is highly useful for companies, government agencies, police and fire departments, schools and universities, hospitals, clergy, social workers and even as a supplement for military service notification teams. In their research, the authors found that most organizations are ill-prepared to competently and compassionately carry out this sad but important responsibility. Most people don't like to talk about the subject. That's natural and understandable. What is neither understandable nor acceptable is an organization ignoring or paying little attention to the potential of such an event. How bad news is delivered and received can have a deep and enduring impact on both the organization's messenger, the organization itself and the loved ones. The consequences can be devastating or can serve as the beginning of a healthy grieving process. This book is full of useful tools and tips that will help your organization and its people prepare for a potential event, which in turn will make notification less difficult, expedite the notification process, reduce anxiety and stress, prepare for the unexpected, minimize hurtful and costly mistakes and protect an organization's reputation. We encourage you to take advantage of the wealth of information in this book so that if and when the time comes, you and your organization can handle this tough duty skillfully and with care.

  • Deal By Me: A Golden Opportunity Blown

    This book begins with my day of sentencing. I had been practicing law in Henderson, North Carolina for ten years and on this day I am in court for armed bank robbery. I share what this day was like as well as prison life. While confined, I came to the realization that I was a compulsive gambler. I share my background of growing up in a small rural area in Eastern North Carolina and the details of how my gambling began and more specifically the card game of poker. Recounting and sharing many aspects of my life were painful but then there were other aspects that were a joy. Sharing my mental hospital experience and the sharing of the crime were difficult. But sharing where I am now and how blessed I have been were moments of joy. It is about this thirty-six year old lawyer who had been practicing law for ten years but because of unwise choices, flawed judgment, terrible foresight and bad habits, eventually ends up in prison. I end this book by attempting to show that in the face of adversities, one can still overcome and be successful, if he has the determination, perseverance and faith. The book in not intended to be a detailed autobiography but rather a life of gambling; especially, the card game of poker.

  • All Mine!

    Ava, Kai, and JoJo are playing with their toys at school, but they aren't ready to share and take turns. Can the teacher help them out?

    JoJo wants Ava's carrot. JoJo grabs one end of the carrot.
    Ava holds tight to the other end. They both shriek!

    Here comes the teacher to help.
    "I see you both want that carrot. But Ava's not done yet. JoJo, here's the asparagus--let's make a stew with Ava."

    JoJo does not want to make stew. She still wants the carrot.
    "Ava, tell JoJo, 'You can have it when I'm done, '" the teacher says.
    Ava says, "When I done!"


    All Mine! is about toddlers' need to feel ownership, so they can better navigate this tricky time in their development when everything is "All Mine!" Includes a Note to Parents and Caregivers written by the authors about supporting toddlers' needs for ownership.

    Written with simple language and reflective of children's realities, the Terrific Toddlers series is based on understanding of the developmental level of young toddlers. Titles include All Mine!, Boo-Boo!, and Bye-Bye!.

    From the Note to Parents and Caregivers:

    "Sharing" is simply not a concept that a young toddler can grasp...yet. It may seem counterintuitive, but in fact, encouraging full ownership, as the teacher does for JoJo in All Mine!, can actually hasten the development of generosity, since allowing the toddler to fully be in this phase of development hastens her mastery of the lessons about self that it provides.

    It is not until at least age three--when young children are developmentally ready to want acceptance from peers and have a firm understanding of the concept of self--that they can begin to want to share.

  • Fear God and the Shadow of the Muslim Sword

    Fear God and the Shadow of the Muslim Sword is a study of Islam and the men leading it in the twenty-first century. I am neither a preacher nor a politician. I am an author caught up in a sensitive subject most secular societies are unfamiliar with. This book is a rational explanation without bias. It is based on both historical fact and books written by modern Muslim leaders themselves, it is not an attack on the religion based on personal agenda.My research told a different story than what has become common on the editorial pages of American newspapers and contradictory to what the leaders of the American Muslim community are saying. The fact however is, that, with limited exceptions, the term moderate is not compatible when used in a sentence with the word Islam, except to describe what Islam is not!Challenge me if you will, but put rhetoric aside and research your own beliefs first. "Islam is a revolutionary doctrine and system that overturns governments. It seeks to overturn the whole universal social order ___ and to establish its structure anew ___ Islam seeks the world. It is not satisfied by a piece of land but demands the whole universe ___ Jihad is at the same time offensive and defensive ___ The Islamic party does not hesitate to utilize the means of war to implement its goal."

  • Internet Sex Offenders

    One of the most chilling aspects of our technological age is the seeming ease with which perpetrators can use the internet to commit sexual offenses. Fears of internet predators have led to unprecedented media attention and the mobilization of legal and investigative resources toward identifying and prosecuting child pornography and solicitation offenders, as well as a great deal of research into all aspects of online sexual offending in hopes of clarifying, reducing, and eliminating these kinds of offenses. In this comprehensive, state-of-the science work, Michael C. Seto examines a wealth of research conducted over the last decade regarding the use and contribution of the internet to sexual crimes including the creation and dissemination of child pornography, and online and offline solicitation efforts leading to contact offenses such as rape and sexual assault. He examines the etiology and characteristics of online offenders, the relation between online and offline offending, and provides practical information relevant to risk assessment and as well as clinical and legal intervention. He also investigates the impact of the internet on related issues such as statutory offending, "grooming" tactics, "sexting," as well as the truth about "stranger danger" and the real risk to children of assault and abduction.

  • Visiting Feelings

    Gold Medal, 2013 Mom's Choice Awards

    Silver Medal, 2014 Nautilus Awards

    Do you have a feeling that's visiting today?
    Can you open your door and invite it to play?

    Visiting Feelings harnesses a young child's innate capacity to fully experience the present moment. Rather than labeling or defining specific emotions and feelings, Visiting Feelings invites children to sense, explore, and befriend any feeling with acceptance and equanimity. Children can explore their emotions with their senses and gain an understanding of how feelings can lodge in the body, as conveyed by common expressions like "a pit in the stomach" or "lump in the throat."

    Children can cultivate this emotional intelligence and nurture a sense of mindfulness. In essence, mindfulness is tuning into yourself and paying attention to the present moment without judging or analyzing what you are thinking or feeling. Practicing mindfulness can enhance many aspects of a person's well-being, help develop insight and empathy, and enhance resiliency.

    Taking the time to practice mindfulness as a family is a remarkable gift for parents to give to their children, and will help children as they navigate the teen years and adulthood.

    Includes a "Note to Parents" to provide more information about emotional awareness, and suggests ways to seamlessly incorporate mindfulness practices into your child and family's daily routines.

  • Teaching Ethically: Challenges and Opportunities

    Educators work within a fluid academic and social landscape that requires frequent examination and re-examination of what constitutes ethical practice. In this book, editors R. Eric Landrum and Maureen McCarthy identify four broad areas of concern in the ethical teaching of undergraduate psychology: pedagogy, student behaviour, faculty behaviour toward students, and considerations in the diverse classroom. Together with their team of experts, they provide evidence-based advice and case studies that illustrate the application of relevant ethical principles.

    Ethical teachers need to reflect on commonly accepted practices and make individual decisions about responsible teaching behaviours, such as honouring individual differences and respectfully challenging beliefs. Other challenges examined in this book include grading, textbook adoption, honour systems, online instruction, and conducting and using research on pedagogy to improve classroom practice. Infusing the undergraduate experience with ethics is the focus of chapters on supervising student internships, coauthoring research with students, and modelling appropriate professional boundaries.

    Readers will find a host of practical suggestions for approaching ethics proactively in both traditional and virtual classrooms. This book will become an instant resource for all teachers in the social and behavioural sciences who care about ethical interactions between faculty members and students.

  • Mentalization-Based Treatment for Children: A Time-Limited Approach

    Mentalization--based treatment (MBT) promotes clients' ability to interpret the meaning of others' behavior by considering their underlying mental states and intentions, as well as clients' capacity to understand the impact of their own behaviors on others. This book is the first comprehensive clinical introduction to using this approach with children, 5--12 years old, who experience emotional and behavioral problems including anxiety, depression, and relational difficulties. Written by an international team of clinician--researchers who are pioneering the MBT model with children, the authors begin by exploring the significance of mentalization and then devote the core chapters to the process of conducting short-term (9--12 sessions) MBT for children, including problem assessment and case formulation in terms of mentalizing techniques, the therapist's stance, and treatment termination. The approach draws on traditional psychodynamic principles, but integrates them with findings from attachment theory, the empirical study of mentalization, and features of other evidence--based approaches. This book includes a chapter--length case illustration and an appendix that lists measures of reflective functioning in children and their parents, as well as validation articles.

  • The Military Wedding

    As a wedding consultant, who specializes in military weddings, I hear brides, who are trying to plan military weddings, lament about the lack of information available about military weddings. Brides are marrying later and are better educated. Even if they are hiring a wedding consultant to plan a military wedding, the brides still want to know as much as possible. Most wedding planning and etiquette books briefly address military weddings, but not to the satisfaction of most military brides. There are situations that face the bride or groom marrying a military person that a civilian couple doesn't always have to face. In addition to embarking on a new journey as a married couple, the military wedding is the beginning of a whole new way of life and culture. A severe case of culture shock may manifest once the new military spouse arrives at the spouse's duty location. Welcome to the brave new world of military jargon, acronyms, ID cards, wives' clubs, customs and courtesies, personnel reassignments, deployments and on and on. Becoming a military spouse is also an exciting adventure--full of new and exotic places, as well as challenges that will test the foundation of your marriage. Or, it will strengthen your partnership as husband and wife, bound by the fondest memories of shared experiences, adventures and challenges conquered. It's enough to make a strong person weak in the knees. It's not a life for the faint of heart. So, this book, The Military Wedding, has been written to make the experience less harrowing and more enjoyable. This book is mainly written for the civilian bride marrying a military groom, but I will try not to overlook the civilian groom marrying a military woman and the military bride and groom. A few paragraphs, as found in most books, won't answer your questions.

  • From Slave to College President: The Life Story of Booker T. Washington

    Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) was an American educator, orator, author and leader of the African-American community. He was freed from slavery as a child, and after working at several menial jobs in West Virginia, earned his way through an education at Hampton Institute and Wayland Seminary. Upon recommendation of Hampton founder Sam Armstrong, as a young man, he was appointed as the first leader of the new Tuskegee Institute, then a teachers' college for blacks. Washington believed that education was a crucial key to African American citizens rising within the social and economic structure of the United States. He rose into a nationally prominent role as spokesman and leader for them. Although his non-confrontational approach was criticized by some blacks (notably W.E.B.

  • How To Maximize Your Manhood: What every red-blooded male needs to know

    'Does Size Matter?' Reference to surveys, coupled with views expressed by women in magazines and TV shows, are made. Man's own raison d'etre is considered; his needs explained. Genitalia described and illustrated; their function explained. How penile growth can be achieved by natural means - what the exercises actually do. The reader can see where he stands. Thanks to the Internet, hundreds of thousands are experimenting with routines - with maybe millions more curious to learn - sharing their experiences with each other, but there are only a handful of reliable and experienced practitioners amongst them. Over a period of 5 years the author identified these men and exchanged views, experiences, and advice from that select few. It became apparent that each had become an expert in a particular aspect of penile enlargement (PE). The routines and exercises described are drawn from those few. All methods reported in detail with added confirmation provided by the active participation of the author - and his medically qualified mentor. Using only his hands, the reader can follow the step-by-step exercises. Cautionary notes guide the student through to advanced routines. Human nature leads many men to seek mechanical help to achieve their aims more quickly or more easily. That industry is identified; guidance is given on the use of weights, vacuum pumps and cylinders, lubricants, traction devices, pills, potions and patches, and much more besides. Internet forums are rife; not all are responsibly run. The book helps identify such 'meeting places' where the reader can further his interest in this very private practice. Survey results amongst PE students and research results reproduced in the book show gains made in penile growth by a volunteer group over a 3 month period. Women surveyed report opinions and preferences between length and thickness of a man's penis.

  • Crazy Love: Overwhelmed by a Relentless God

    Revised & Updated Edition! God is love. Crazy, relentless, all-powerful love. Have you ever wondered if we're missing it?

    It's crazy, if you think about it. The God of the universe--the Creator of nitrogen and pine needles, galaxies and E-minor--loves us with a radical, unconditional, self-sacrificing love. And what is our typical response? We go to church, sing songs, and try not to cuss. Whether you've verbalized it yet or not, we all know something's wrong.

    Does something deep inside your heart long to break free from the status quo? Are you hungry for an authentic faith that addresses the problems of our world with tangible, even radical, solutions? God is calling you to a passionate love relationship with Himself. Because the answer to religious complacency isn't working harder at a list of do's and don'ts--it's falling in love with God. And once you encounter His love, as Francis describes it, you will never be the same. Because when you're wildly in love with someone, it changes everything.

  • From Small Island to Big World: An Autobiography

    When Susanne finally decided to write this book, she was resolved that it would not contain just extractions from her personal diary of globetrotting notes. Rather it would be a chronicle of the highlights of her life over the past forty years. She felt that the writings should emphasise her own personal makeover from a small island girl into an international traveller, as well as to showcase some of the developments in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and in the wider Caribbean region, leading to the transformation of both, into modern-day developing entities which are now attracting the interest and respect of the world at large.This book will include chapters about- Susanne Desiree Erica, the petite lady from St. Vincent and the Grenadines, that small island state in the developing world. Who by commitment to hard work, uncompromising integrity and a home-grown characteristic for organization and tenacity, was able to enhance her personal on-the-job performance, earn the respect and friendship of many of her work colleagues, and over time, gain the confidence and admiration of her supervisors, wherever she served.This book therefore, will also be about her family life and love for her parents; about love for and devotion to her siblings. It speaks to the distraught and anguish caused by death in the family; about picking up the pieces of shattered emotions following a failed marriage; and moving on to greater successes. It is about finding new love and discovering a soul mate, and in general, understanding and appreciating the seemingly small but very important things in her life. The stories herein which touch upon her very early life were told to her by her father and co-author.

  • Violent Offenders: Appraising and Managing Risk

    Predicting future violence among criminal offenders is notoriously difficult. In the previous editions of this popular book, the authors argued that community risk management is best done with actuarial assessment. Combining what is known about violence prediction, clinical decision making, and the literature on treatment outcome and program evaluation, they introduced and chronicled the development of their landmark assessment instruments, the Violence Risk Appraisal Guide (VRAG) and Sex Offender Risk Appraisal Guide. These have become go-to resources for forensic psychologists in the trenches today.

    In this third edition, the authors review the major changes in the risk assessment field, which include a much larger and richer empirical literature, a focus on dynamic risk management among supervised offenders, and commentaries on the use and effectiveness of expert clinical judgment in determining risk. Perhaps most important, they also introduce the VRAG-R, a new actuarial tool that is easier to score than the VRAG and the SORAG while delivering equally accurate results. Written with the authors' usual clarity and keen insight, this book is a must-read for legal professionals and forensic psychologists, policymakers, and all those working with offender populations who hope to eliminate recidivism.

  • Steam Cooking: Healthy Foods With Natural Taste

    Steam cooking, pan searing, stir-frying and deep-frying are the four most common techniques of Chinese cooking. Each one produces a different result, even though for the same material. The selection of which cooking method to use is based upon whether it is the one to help bring out the best of the ingredients. While there are many recipes available for Chinese cooking, this book is dedicated to steam cooking. Steam cooking is healthy because it uses steam instead of oil to cook. The ingredients must be fresh. Otherwise they would not be tasty as there is no flour batter per se to cover up. Steam cooking is a relatively simple method as it can be done either using a wok or while cooking rice. While the choice of materials and the right amount of steamed time are crucial to make a tasty dish, culinary skill requirement is not so demanding. Steam cooking is also energy conserving because for most seafood or light meat dishes, cooking takes less than 10 minutes, compared with at least 30 minutes while using a conventional oven. Best of all, multiple servings can be cooked at the same time by stacking up the steamer baskets and cooked in the same wok! This book covers the basics of steam cooking, from how to flavour a dish, water level and general rules to determine cooking time for various ingredients. It talks about some finishing techniques that can enhance the flavour of a dish. There are illustrative examples of utensils, common sauces, herbs, seasoning, and pantry items that can be used with steam cooking. There are recipes for meat, fish, vegetable and dim sum dishes. They are easy to follow and illustrated with full-colour photography.

  • The Innsmouth Tabernacle Choir Hymnal

    Here gathered in one place are many of the most celebrated and moving hymns of the Great Old Ones, certain to summon winged horrors down from the sky, or nameless things from out of the Earth's depths. These are the authentic liturgies celebrated at Dagon Hall in Innsmouth, Massachusetts. Also suitable for picnics and parties.

    Brother Darrell Schweitzer has provided hymns for Cthulhu Prayer Breakfasts at the Necronomicon convention for some years, where he has also conducted Lovecraft tours in the College Hill area of Providence. While he has shambed among us for less than three quarters of a century, and therefore has not yet begun the "change" characteristic of Dagon's hierophants, he nevertheless, as the Rev. J. Apocalypse Gibber, Jr. notes in the introduction, has "the look." He co-edited "Weird Tales" magazine for many years ans is the author of numerous fantasy and horror stories.

    "Inspirational. My mother used to sing me to sleep with these. Sometimes my father did too." -- Wilbur Whateley

    "I will always support faith-based initiatives of this sort." -- George W. Bush

    "I would sing along if I could carry a tune in a bucket. Unfortunately, I don't have a bucket." -- Lee Weinstein

    "Far out! I can dig it!" -- Franz Kafka

    "Searchers after horror haunt strange, far places. For them are the catacombs of Ptolemais, and the carven mausolea of the nightmare countries. They climb to the moonlit towers of ruined Rhine castles, and falter down black cobwebbed steps beneath the scattered stones of forgotten cities in Asia. But actually, they need look no farther than this book." -- H.P. Lovecraft

  • When You Look Out the Window: How Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin Built a Community

    When You Look Out the Window tells the story of Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin, one of San Francisco's most well-known and politically active lesbian couples. Describing the view from Phyllis and Del's window, this book shows how one couple's activism transformed their community -- and had ripple effects throughout the world.

    Includes a Reading Guide that provides helpful historical context, and a Note to Parents, Caregivers, and Educators about the importance of teaching LGBTQ history and culture to children.

    This is a unique way to introduce children to untold stories in history while also being a clever tribute to two notable women.

    From the Reading Guide:


    Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin were one of San Francisco's most well-known and politically active lesbian couples. They met in 1950, and moved in together on February 14, 1953 (Valentine's Day!). The house they shared for 53 years--and where Phyllis still lives today--located at the top of Castro Street, has a big picture window that overlooks the entire city. Each of the landmarks described in the story is part of the view from their house. Phyllis and Del left their mark on each of these sites, and they are described below.

    From the Note to Parents, Caregivers, and Educators:

    People who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or queer (LGBTQ) are more visible and accepted in our society than ever before. However, anyone who wants to learn about LGBTQ history and culture will probably have to search for that information on their own. Many students have never learned anything about LGBTQ history. They may not have realized that some of the authors whose works they read (or whose works were read to them) were LGBTQ. They may not know that major discoveries and contributions to the fields of science, mathematics, and technology were made by LGBTQ people. And they may not be aware of the ways in which LGBTQ people have been oppressed, and what they did to fight back against it.

  • Method Mania: Activities to Teach Written Expression Skills & Strategies

    Success in school, in work, and in life can be greatly enhanced by the ability to write effectively. And due to the writing process revolution we are gradually improving the quality of writing. The writing process focuses on exploring metacognitively what writers actually do throughout a writing task; how real writers go about constructing texts. Teachers work closely with students, helping them to understand writing as a communication and learning process. The importance of the creation, expression, and comprehension of meaning is emphasized throughout the process. Because writing is a complex process, students need to progress through a number of levels, not necessarily in a linear fashion, to experience the process. Too often students approach writing with a "one and done" mentality, failing to recognize that complex writing cannot be accomplished in a single sitting, in a single draft. We need to help them realize that successful writers are reflective about their writing processes and habits, learning what procedures work best and adapting them to suit particular situations. The best forum for implementing the writing process into the classroom is through a writer's workshop. A typical writer's workshop is a block of time scheduled each day for students to work through the steps in the process. It is important to remember that writing should extend across the curriculum. If a block of writing time can't be scheduled for one day it should be integrated into another subject. Writing should be viewed as a means of communicating and emerge naturally out of other activities. Teachers should make writing so integral to each lesson that the flow of the class is smooth from mental to verbal to written communication. Teachers using the workshop approach do not ignore the product and parts of language. Instead, the product is considered within the process. Grammar and mechanics are taught in the context of use. In the past, the teaching of formal grammar usually displaced some instruction and practice in actual composition. Unfortunately, with our overcrowded curriculum, teachers can't afford to spend excessive class time on decontexualized grammar exercises that involve little or no actual composition. Students should be given daily opportunities to explore writing and create written text for various purposes. We know that writing is a powerful tool that can influence others and clarify one's own thoughts. Teaching the writing process through the workshop approach can give students the key to unlocking this powerful tool. And the activities in this book are designed to help make the process easier for teachers to pick up and implement today. You will find over 200 mini lessons designed to stimulate critical and creative thinking that can be applied to written composition in all phases of the writing process. Students will continue to recognize that adults who use these activities in the context of authentic literacy lessons are those who are committed to facilitating and promoting only the very best of writers.

  • 101 Helps for Helpers

    We were created to care for each other. Some such as social workers, counselors, pastors, chaplains, seminarians, doctors, nurses, teachers, missionaries, and many others have experienced a calling and have pursued education and training that equipped them to be professional helpers. Others have sensed a calling, and out of love, passion, and compassion help and care for others. Still others just help because we are called to bear one another's burdens and to lend a helping hand along life's journey. And others took on the task of being a caregiver because that was the thing to do. This book is written for helpers and caregivers-thus everyone. Sometimes helpers become burdened with the load of caring; sometimes they need something to lift their spirits; sometimes they need a source of new insights and new ideas. Yet, sometimes, they need the comfort that comes from spending time in God's Word, meditating on God's promises, and seeing how biblical characters found help from God. I hope this book will be one that you turn to time and again; one that you will share with others. As you go along each day, use the book as a source for daily meditation, reflection, and inspiration. Or, take a break; turn to a page; or let the book fall open to a page; and anticipate how God will send the right message and encouragement that you need for a moment of disappointment, discouragement, or when you need a word of discernment. Better yet, find a happy story to make you laugh, reminisce, and celebrate. Be blessed as you help and care for others as well as yourselves.

Now, more than ever, psychologists' expertise is employed on a day-to-day basis by members of the military and national intelligence communities.

    Okay, time for a little confession. Three things: 1. I spent about forty years writing ads and commercials for various advertising agencies, and for about 85% of that time I absolutely loved it.2. For the other 15% of the time, I absolutely hated it.3. But in spite of the disasters involved in that 15%, I wouldn't have traded jobs with anyone. Not even the President of the United States. But why in the world had I chosen to do it all in Minneapolis? Beats me. Minneapolis, as you probably know, is in Minnesota. And Minnesota means unusual weather, to say the least. In June-which is when I decided to take the job-there are several wonderful days. Maybe four or five. But the rest of the time it's mostly winter. With snow up to your ears and the thermometer plunging helplessly. And that was only the beginning of the problems . . .

  • A Missing Link in Leadership: The Trial of Ltc Allen West

    What is Leadership? Dr. Richard Berry presents a thought-provoking depiction of current leadership theories as myths because of the effort to exclude or conceal the meaning and value of emotion. This would suggest that current leadership theory is incomplete due not only to the absence of emotions but independent thought and intuition as well. Lieutenant Colonel Allen West-a husband, father of two, and a military officer with an impeccable service record including a previous award for valor-had his military career ended prematurely when he undertook extraordinary measures to protect the lives of his men. He was serving in Tikrit, Iraq, the home of the late Sadaam Hussein and dead center of what we all know today as the Sunni Triangle. He was not wounded, killed in action, or taken prisoner, but instead charged with felony offenses by the United States Army for mistreating an Iraqi detainee, who was believed to have information that was going to kill American soldiers. This book documents what the effects of leadership can be when the power of the human spirit is allowed to flourish at the individual, group and organizational levels.

  • The Final Empire: The Collapse of Civilization and the Seed of the Future

    In spite of its tough message, there is much compassion and humanity in The Final Empire. Right away as you begin to read this work, you sense increasingly the grand perspective in K?tke's words. He is not speaking of anarchy. He is offering vital common sense. It's just that his meaning is so unavoidably political. And so much against what we have been taught all our lives: The materialistic values of civilization teach us that the accumulation of wealth is progress. The material wealth of the civilization is derived from the death of the earth, the soils, the forests, the fish stocks, the 'free resources' of flora and fauna. The ultimate end of this is for all human species to live in giant parasitical cities of cement and metal while surrounded by deserts of exhausted soils. The simple polar opposites are: the richness and wealth of the natural life of earth versus the material wealth of people living out their lives in artificial environments. This amounts to a direct challenge to humankind. A demand for radical change. A re-envisioning of our part in the community of life and the precepts of individuality. And Mr. K?tke provides a strong argument for this case. He traces the environmental scars of civilization through the ages. Empire after empire, desertification of the top soil winds its way around the globe in an erosive helix from China to India to Mesopotamia to Italy to North America. As radical as it may seem at first glance, The Final Empire is a necessary and sensible primer for the recovery of the planet. It blends a critical statistical analysis of our deteriorating environment with a positivism of hope for a post-empire age and a new whole-human relation to the living community of Earth. Dan Armstrong, Author of the Novels, Prairie Fire and Taming the Dragon

  • A Root Cause to Why Our "Children" Cannot Read: And How to Prevent It

    This book is written to enhance the possibilities of uncovering new ways to teach reading. This book, is addressing how teachers, college professors, community leaders, community business owners, officials and parent's should encourage and challenge their local school and local board of education to utilize the absolute best methods available to teach our children how to read. In the United States alone our children are completing Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd Grade and some even 3rd Grade, and these children are not able to read. Parents are expected to present inquiries to their child's teachers, school officials, and educational experts to design a learning method to improve our current system of teaching reading. The message, research and the structure of this book was written to encourage all parents, educators and school officials to think about "What If" there was a better and more effective way to teach a child how to read? Would you take on that challenge of giving a child the "Gift" of learning how to read? No matter the cost! Do you spend your days working with students who struggle to comprehend reading in literacy and content classes? Are you looking for a better way to establish comprehensive literacy of instruction in your school, classroom or home so all students receive support in becoming a competent and confident reader? Hopefully, some readers will have more use for the practical strategies and/or perhaps some educators will want to have this book for their classroom and personal use.

  • Midnight Ballerina

    Midnight Ballerina is not only a one person experience, yet it is about one girl whose father took advantage of her. This story was given to help those who have suffered and will suffer such detestable and ugly experiences so that there may be closure in their lives. This horrific experience left a bitter taste, with residue of hate, resentment, discomfort, depression and distrust. This demonic spirit, through the incest father transferred generational curses to his daughter. The incest demon spirit of lust attempted to destroy this ballerina, to prevent her from reaching her destiny in Christ Jesus. Because she was chosen from the foundation of the world to be one of the saints of God, the demonic spirit was sent on an assignment to assure that it would not be fulfilled. Her destiny of salvation was prepared and laid before she entered the womb of her mother. Therefore, the devil/demon spirit through the father could not totally destroy her. In the upcoming sequel to Midnight Ballerina, her life was change for the better. She touched the lives of many, (including those of like experiences) causing them to hope again and regain control of their lives. Because Satan could not kill the chosen ones, he intimidate, harass and interrupt some of the saints in their daily endeavors, causing pain, afflictions, emotional, physical and mental distress. The central focus of Midnight Ballerina also reveals the aforementioned emotional stress with the others characters in this book. Their personal ordeals may have not been as grievous and gruesome as the Ballerina, nevertheless, the pain of afflictions, resentment, abuse and rejection also created great discomfort in their personal lives.

Benumbed, I lay there sensing; no savoring in the rain; drenched, and with the raindrops splattering, spreading their translucent colors to have me rhyme, 'Debbie Debbie weighing sounds round and round her womb, womb.

  • Transcendent Mind: Rethinking the Science of Consciousness

    Everyone knows that consciousness resides in the brain. Or does it?

    In this book, Imants Baruss and Julia Mossbridge utilize findings from quantum mechanics, special relativity, philosophy, and paranormal psychology to build a rigorous, scientific investigation into the origins and nature of human consciousness. Along the way, they examine the scientific literature on concepts such as mediumship, out-of-body and near-death experiences, telekinesis, "apparent" vs. "deep time," and mind-to-mind communication, and introduce eye-opening ideas about our shared reality. The result is a revelatory tour of the "post-materialist" world--and a roadmap for consciousness research in the twenty-first century.

    Charles Hoy Fort (1874-1932) was an American writer and researcher into anomalous phenomena. Jerome Clark writes that Fort was "Essentially a satirist hugely skeptical of human beings' -- especially scientists' claims to ultimate knowledge." Clark describes Fort's writing style as a "distinctive blend of mocking humor, penetrating insight, and calculated outrageousness." Writer Colin Wilson describes Fort as "a kind of patron saint of cranks" and also argues that running through Fort's work is "the feeling that no matter how honest scientists think they are, they are still influenced by various unconscious assumptions that prevent them from attaining true objectivity. Today, the term Fortean or Forteana is used to describe various anomalous phenomena.

  • A Second Look: Native Americans In Children's Books

    Four-hundred-twenty-five books are reviewed in this superb collection. A Second Look, Native Americans in Children's Books gives a thorough examination of the books as a guide for parents, teachers, librarians, and administrators interested in books for children. Anyone involved in selecting books will find this guide useful in working through the maze of available materials. Andie Peterson, one of the few women to be awarded an Eagle Feather, has provided a meaningful criteria to help in judging books. She outlines ways for objectively studying books to draw conclusions as to the suitability for the reader. She writes candidly about books filled with stereotypes, hurtful images, and damaging text and illustrations. She writes eloquent, glowing reviews of the books that "are real treasures" She writes: "On a daily basis, children must face the hidden curriculum that lets them know where they fit in, whether they can achieve their goals, whether they even dare to dream. An overwhelming part of that hidden curriculum begins with books that are more narrative and illustrations; they are books that carry a message of politics and values" Andie advises that in selecting Native American books, the non-Native child must be considered, also. She counsels that hurtful books "set in motion attitudes of prejudice that persist for years" She states that she has reviewed books with older copyrights because they are still on the shelves in libraries and available via the Internet. She says reading the older books helps "to understand how adults have formed ideas about Native people" She says: "After all, if it's in a book in the library, people believe it to be true. It's time to disturb the peace and end the ritual of damage" A Second Look, Native Americans in Children's BooksBy Andie Peterson

  • Depression: A Teen’s Guide to Survive and Thrive

    "Readers looking for help for themselves or a friend will find that this slim volume is chock-full of easy-to-implement ideas for those living with depression."--School Library Journal

    Teens get a great deal of information and guidance on many things from study skills to college admissions to test taking...and the list goes on. But many teens get no direct instruction about how to manage difficult emotions. This lack of direction can be hard because teens are at an age vulnerable to depression. While people often use the word "depression" to describe a momentary mood, the same term is also used to label a more serious and long-lasting problem that can interfere with many aspects of a person's life. It's that second definition that is the focus of this book.

    Depression: A Teen's Guide to Survive and Thrive is a guidebook for teenagers who are depressed or at risk for depression. This guide discusses depression and provides guidance on cognitive--behavioral therapy principles to help teens take a problem-solving, strategy-based approach to deal with depressed moods, thoughts, and behavior. Intended to serve as an adjunct to therapy, this is a very practical and easy-to-read book that is not overwhelming for teens.

  • My Home Renovation: What you should know before you hire a home improvement contractor

    The whole idea for this book was born out of frustration from my own horror stories with contractors, as well as everybody else's that I have learned about. Plenty of people have told me about a bad incident they have experienced with a contractor, which could have been avoided if the customer had been more informed. Trashing home improvement contractors is not the intention of this book. In the construction business, you have some good contractors as well as bad. The main goal of this book is to educate homeowners on some of the finer points of hiring a home improvement contractor. Ask the average homeowner what he or she knows about blueprints, building codes, or home improvement contracts, and I am sure you will not get a lot of answers. This would be similar to someone asking me-an electrician-about investment banking or bond trading. If you're not in the business, then how would you know? Whether I am buying a car or planning to travel, I always do my research prior to making a decision. There is no such thing as getting too much information. Home renovation guides are very popular and ubiquitous. What distinguishes my book from all the others is the amount of detailed information I provide on the do's and don't's as well as the strategies to use and the pitfalls to avoid when hiring a home improvement contractor. The readers of my book will become educated about the tools needed to successfully hire a contractor, while attempting to minimize the aggravation and disappointment that frequently accompanies a great number of home renovations. When a homeowner decides to renovate his or her home, he or she can always find plenty of books on home renovations. Most of these books detail a lot of information on the ideas and designs, with very few details on hiring and working with a contractor. Another popular source for hiring a contractor is through recommendations. Once again, you hire the contractor, and

  • So Many Smarts!

    Gold medal, Mom's Choice Awards

    Finalist, 2017 INIDIES (Foreword Reviews)

    Did you know there's more than one kind of Smart?
    In fact, there are many! Where do we start?
    No two people show their Smarts the same way.
    Each of us is different, and that's a-okay!


    You have lots of different Smarts.
    Some louder, some quieter.
    Each plays a part.
    And no one Smart is better than another.
    So let's read on. There are plenty to discover!

    So Many Smarts! introduces kids to a variety of "smarts" and teaches that them there is more than one way to be smart. It encourages readers to look at their own combination of brain power and skills to determine how they might learn best, excel, and be themselves. Based on the theory of multiple intelligences, this book shows kids that all of the different skills they have require various types of smarts as well as how they can celebrate their differences.

    A Note to Parents, Caregivers, and Educators offers more information about the different smarts outlined in the book and ways to support children exploring their unique strengths.

  • Webster's 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language

    Language is an expression of ideas, and as ideas change over time, words take on new meanings. Hence, Noah Webster's monumental 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language is a work of great importance to modern readers who care about traditional values. The founding documents of the United States of America are contemporary with this 1828 dictionary, as are many other important books and documents of that time. The 1828 dictionary defines the language of these materials in the context of their era and thus becomes a valuable reference tool to enhance understanding. In addition, Noah Webster based his work extensively on the King James Version of the Bible, so that not only the words but also the values of the early nineteenth century are reflected in the definitions. As Webster wrote, "In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed. . . . No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people." To make Webster's monumental work available at a more affordable price, this new edition has been carefully prepared in a proprietary compact format: All of the words, definitions, and examples have been preserved, but the explanations of word origins have been omitted to save space, as has Webster's lengthy technical introduction. Scripture references have been standardized in modern format, and many abbreviations have been spelled out for greater understanding. Also, for the first time since the book's original publication, the text has been newly typeset; the clear and sturdy Charter typeface makes the text highly readable in spite of its small size. In addition, the book has been printed on acid-free, archival-quality paper, ensuring many years of useful service. This new, compact edition is published with the same hope expressed by Webster himself: "I present it to my fellow citizens, not with frigid indifference, but with my ardent wishes for their improvement and their happiness; and for the continued increase of the wealth, the learning, the moral and religious elevation of character, and the glory of my country."

  • Salt Seeker: When There Is Life, There Is a Will to Survive

    Introduction: After the Khmer Rouge, led by Pol Pot, ousted the democratic Lon Nol's government and took complete control of Cambodia on April 17th, 1975, the jubilation lasted for less than 12 hours. That afternoon, 3:00 p.m., Khmer Rouge started to empty the city of Phnom Pehn and the city went into chaos. The Khmer Rouge announced, "Everyone must leave the city immediately for three days so that we can clean up the city. Then you would be allowed to return to your home. You must pack just enough stuff to use for three days. Leave the city immediately." Once all the people who had no political ties with the communist Khmer Rouge arrived at the country sides; the farm, they turned everyone into farmers and peasants. Then the killing began. Salt Seeker is an extraordinary story about a courageous young boy who journeyed through hell on earth and back from April 17, 1975 to January 7, 1979. Hope and strength of will kept him alive!

  • Blood, Sand and Betrayal: Struggles and Triumphs

    Viet Nam took it's toll on those who fought and came home. The realization that something was very wrong came years later . Men turned to drugs and alcahol to numb the paim of reliving the memories that like a movie ran endlessly day in and day out. Night time brought out the demons lodged in our subconcious. Wives and children would suffer, marriages would break up, men lost all respect from the communities where they made and called home. Everybody became a threat an enemy to the Veteran. Trying to sleep knowing that any noice would demand constance vigilence. Post Tramatic Stress Disorder or PTSD was not even heard about after 30 plus years of suffering and humilation disgraced disfuncitional families were created and nobody would pin point the cause of why Veterans were rapidly becoming victums. We were never accepted by our country for doing a job that was called by our own government. We have paid a heavy price trying to bring freedon to a country that cared less. In my book I tried to bring some answers to the fanilies of Veterans who were shut out and suffered at the hands of those who wanted to reach out but who would not yet begun to trust the people around them. Maybe from a Veteran who has gone through the same troubles at home and work and the fear of dying will bring some answers.

  • Discover The Roots To Your Anger

    Anger is one of our most dynamic and forceful emotions moving us very powerfully. Emotions are not good or bad; they are simply part of life. What we choose to do with these emotions indicates whether they become positive or negative. If angry feelings are suppressed they may never become recognized or named. This could lead to mental health problems. Anger turned inwards is the cause of many relationship problems. Anger may trigger anxiety. Anxiety may in turn produce anger. Just because you are angry does not necessarily imply that you have a problem. Anger is after all, part of a natural response that aids in our survival and helps us to protect others. Anger, can therefore give one the courage to protect our loved ones; it may warn others not to take advantage of us and in some instances confirm our own individuality. Anger can also be a healthy emotion, as it can lead us to take appropriate action. It can also help us to ?make right the wrongs? in our lives and to face up to our personal issues. Facing up to your anger and wanting to make changes, leads to the contribution of positive self-esteem and enhanced feelings of self-worth. Anger does not always lead to devastating circumstances. However, left untreated, it can lead to psychological problems or can actually ?exacerbate? existing ones. As medical intervention can be an effective antidote for infectious diseases, similarly applying anger management strategies can be an effective antidote to dysfunctional anger and recurring resentments. Serious physical wounds need serious medicine and require the skill of a physician to detect the source of the problem. Serious deep-rooted anger may also require the attention and skill of a health care professional.

  • Writing Fantasy and Science Fiction

    Although the problems of writing fantasy and science fiction include all those pertaining to the writing of any kind of fiction, particular problems arise in stories in which unprecedented things can and do happen, as well as stories that often involve unhuman characters of various sorts, and that might require the elaborate design of entire imaginary worlds. This book provides an elementary introduction to problems of those kinds, and the ways in which they modify the general problems of writing fiction. It also suggests strategies that might enable the problems to be handled constructively and productively. The author has published more than seventy novels in the field, more than twenty short story collections, and more than twenty related works of non-fiction; he has, as the saying goes, been there, done that, and chewed his t-shirt in relevant frustration. Robert Reginald says: "An absolutely first-rate guide to writing fantastic literature. Stableford has much to say that potential writers of ALL fiction might find valuable, interesting, and highly illuminating. His reasonable discussion and dissection of the basic issues facing authors of creative fiction--and the solutions to be found to each problem--are dollops of solid gold advice, in this editor's humble opinion. Every would-be author should read this book--and more than once!"

  • Bye-bye!

    It's hard for toddlers to say goodbye sometimes, especially to Mom and Dad!

    Sometimes JoJo cries.
    "I want my mommy!"
    Her mommy says,
    "I see you're sad.
    I'll miss you too,
    but I'll be back...

    ...right after you go to the park.


    Even if it's for a short amount of time, Mom and Dad reassure them not to worry because they will always come back. Includes a Note to Parents and Caregivers about helping toddlers with saying goodbye.

    Written with simple language and reflective of children's realities, the Terrific Toddlers series is based on understanding of the developmental level of young toddlers. Titles include All Mine!, Boo-Boo!, and Bye-Bye!.

    From the Note to Parents and Caregivers:

    Unfortunately, what to do during leave-taking is not at all obvious. In fact, it's counterintuitive. We adults are conditioned to "soothe" by saying, "It's OK. Don't worry. It's not a big deal." But your departure is a big deal to your toddler, and saying it isn't actually adds insult to injury. Anxious feelings don't go away by avoiding them or distracting from them. While this approach may be more comfortable in the moment, it amounts to telling your toddler that these feelings aren't authentic--which only adds your toddler's feeling misunderstood to the good-bye experience!

He challenges them to adopt a much-needed optometric model in the Cognitive Neurosciences, in order to effectively address the burgeoning fields of Autism, various Neurological Dysfunctions and Learning Disabilities. According to Dr. Brelvi, the frontiers of scientific discovery are defined as much by the tools available for clinical observation and monitoring as by conceptual innovation. Optometrists or Optometric physicians have historically studied the visual system in toto to understand the subtle nuances associated with a spectrum of learning disabilities. Dr. Brelvi feels that the time is now ripe for Optometry to broaden its scientific horizons and venture into the Cognitive realm of neurological dysfunctions. By introducing the new discipline of Cognitive Optometry, Dr. Brelvi envisions fellow clinicians to recognize the key role played by the visual system in the complex process of cognition, which gives rise to the gift of sentience in modern Homo sapiens. In his view, what marks Cognitive Optometry as an emerging discipline in the Neuro-Clinical Sciences is the study of anomalous mental activity as a visual information-processing problem. It rests on the premise that our perceptions, thoughts and social behavior depend on the ability of the visual system to evaluate and collate sensory information correctly. Perceptual representations taking place in various regions of the brain need to be "translated" into successful goal-oriented behavior in afflicted "patients" to help lead more productive and rewarding lifestyles.

  • Discover the Roots to Your Anger

    Anger is one of our most dynamic and forceful emotions moving us very powerfully. Emotions are not good or bad; they are simply part of life. What we choose to do with these emotions indicates whether they become positive or negative. If angry feelings are suppressed they may never become recognized or named. This could lead to mental health problems. Anger turned inwards is the cause of many relationship problems. Anger may trigger anxiety. Anxiety may in turn produce anger. Just because you are angry does not necessarily imply that you have a problem. Anger is after all, part of a natural response that aids in our survival and helps us to protect others. Anger, can therefore give one the courage to protect our loved ones; it may warn others not to take advantage of us and in some instances confirm our own individuality. Anger can also be a healthy emotion, as it can lead us to take appropriate action. Anger can also help us to make right the wrongs in our lives and to face up to our personal issues. Facing up to your anger can also lead to the contribution of positive self-esteem and enhanced feelings of self-worth. Anger does not always lead to devastating circumstances. However, left untreated, it can lead to psychological problems or can actually exacerbate existing ones. As medical intervention can be an effective antidote for infectious diseases, similarly applying anger management strategies can be an effective antidote to dysfunctional anger and recurring resentments. Serious physical wounds need serious medicine and require the skill of a physician to detect the source of the problem. Serious deep-rooted anger also requires the attention and skill of a health care professional.

  • Business Plans - How to Prepare and Implement Them

    On what basis do companies prepare their business plans? How do they know that they are maximising their opportunities as well as limiting their risks with their existing or planned resource base? How can they plan revenue generation if the market mix does not have a foundation in relation to macro environmental factors? The intent of the book is to remove some of the complex specific marketing criteria alluded to by text book authors. One can then appreciate how a marketing plan can be used for the creation of a business plan. Major benefits are associated with this title, these are: - A. It provides a more simplified corporate management tool. A subject that attracts limited text book coverage by marketing strategy authors. A. It allows readers to gauge the importance of their own positions within a company environment and the overall impact their actions may have. A. It is most useful as tool to gauge more effectively training requirements within a given company environment. A. It is of paramount importance for SME's who may not employ a sales person. A. Last but not least is the importance placed upon research journal authors to limit their "Micro" environmental focus and to concentrate more on "Macro" environments. The book consists of a 10 stage marketing plan (see page 32). Each stage has its own chapter that is both chronological and iterative in terms of its impact upon a company's profit and loss (P and L) statement. The company's P and L is that which states the revenue one can expect to generate by way of the business plans proposed by way of each marketing plan activity. Added to this is cash flow and the manner in which is corresponds directly with the P and L."

  • IN COMMUNICATION WITH THE DECEASED

    This book is based on real life experiences where the possibility of the living being able to communicate with the deceased is investigated.The belief in reincarnation and life after death raises a tantalising question: Can the living communicate with the dead? Most churchmen and scientists are sceptical, but many people, including churchmen and scientists, believe such a thing is possible.The belief in the immortal soul is a dogma of Christianity (resurrection), Hinduism (reincarnation or samsara), Islam (Day of Judgement), Judaism (sheol), and the Shona (NyikaDzimu). Moreover, man has been familiar with the concept of life after death since time immemorial.Immortality has been rejected by those who feel its only basis is wishful thinking - that when the body dies, the personality dies with it because it is part of the physical body. Believers can cite the resurrection of Jesus, and maintain that since life on earth is not completely fulfilled an afterlife is necessary for completion.Another argument in favour of an afterlife is that since matter and energy may be transformed but not destroyed, neither can personality, which exists just as do the elements in nature, be destroyed.In many of the ancient societies, including Egypt and Greece, dreaming was considered a supernatural communication or a means of divine intervention, whose message could be unravelled by those with certain powers. In modern times, various schools of psychology have offered theories about the meaning of dreams.In Communication with the Deceased is meant to serve only as a basis for reflection in order for the reader to examine all the clues and then derive further meaning from specific circumstances of his/her own dreams. To be able to interpret a dream, one does not need to have an academic degree in psychology. What is important is to use one's instinct and common sense. Try to develop your own personal insights into what the common symbols in your dreams mean.When it comes to dream symbol

Will they forget you? Will they visit? Do they know about new arrivals? Special events? Do they have fun? You may just find the answers here. All the pieces and poems are the words of those in the Spirit World. I don't know the answers, but they do. As one child put it "...it isn't the end - it's our beginning..." They learn, they love, they have fun, and they are safe. They are also as mischievous, as bright and lively and as adorable as children the world over. Come and read their stories, their journeys to the Spirit World. Some of them did not have easy lives, some had illnesses, some accidents. All were met with love, with patience and with any help they needed at that time and later. Not all are children, but the majority are. I ask no questions, give no demands, I simply accept what I am told and write it down. I have learned to be very careful how I phrase any comments I make to them, or any requests. If I wake at three in the morning, I am likely to find myself with company. I have been known to say, "Hi sweetheart, could you please come back when I get up?" It isn't then the child's fault if I visit the bathroom at four in the morning is it? I am up......... and I don't have the heart to turn them away again. So at four in the morning I have been known to get out pad and pen, or turn on the pc .

  • Will You (or Someone You Love) Get Prostate Cancer?: A Survivor Sheds Some Light

    John Sias is a prostate cancer survivor, president of the New Hampshire Prostate Cancer Coalition and author of six published books. When he was diagnosed for prostate cancer in 2001, he immediately purchased or borrowed every available book, video and news article he could find on the subject of prostate cancer. Then he and his wife, Marie, devoured all this material, made notes, underlined books, and interviewed survivors, urologists and oncologists. Finally he made his treatment decision. He had already written two successful books in the Question and Answer format, one on religion, now in its ninth printing, and another about ice hockey containing 650 questions and answers.There are many books about prostate cancer but probably few written by a survivor, an author and a president of a state prostate cancer coalition. In addition to all men over 50, those who might find value in this book include public speakers, wives, sons, daughters, news media, and leaders in the nation's fight against state prostate cancer.

  • Divining the Future: Human Intellectual Evolution

    What is Human Intellectual Evolution? Could Darwin's concept of evolution be incomplete? Darwin's theory just might be insufficient, mainly because Darwin didn't apply his theory to the most complex organism of all; the human intellect. There is no question that in the past, numerous civilizations have ascended and then receded in terms of military power, influence and economic clout. Why? Will it happen to us? Human Intellectual Evolution accurately explains the past and greatly enhances the odds of successfully predicting the future. Human Intellectual Evolution drives the process of history forward and illuminates the path ahead. Understanding the three variables that affect the rate of intellectual development is critical to predicting the future and more profitably directing our time, energy and money. The future of the United States, what happens next in China, and the stability of the Middle East are all critical questions with global consequences. Profit and success will accrue to individuals who best grasp the concept of Human Intellectual Evolution and have the courage and fortitude to act upon their convictions.

  • The Long Watch

    How much patience do you have with those around you? Try to imagine if they didn't know that you were even there. When you're a ghost, on a different plane of existence, there's little you can do but observe. To some, life is so precious that as their children grow and face ordeals, decades pass. And while an ancient resolve waits and watches for an evil force that feeds on innocent death in a benevolent disguise, centuries pass. When marriage becomes so intolerable that only death can grant peace in a haunted house, the only refuge found by the troubled spirit is in the seat of wealth and power, covered with cobwebs and infested with a demon. What happens to young children after they're taken away in unspeakable ways beyond their comprehension? Do they just fly away on the wings of angels, or are the living around them so important that death blooms hope for another chance for life? How much love would a mother's spirit need for a daughter to follow her own murderer into a new country, just to be stuck outside in the snow, waiting for a school bus and the smile of a living angel? For a dispatched warrior who hides in the dark to remember what life had once been, when will his tortured spirit find release, transform his grief and rage to revenge, and free him from what imprisoned him for so long? There's a distorted predator on the road, experienced and motivated. Another child has been abducted, and the end of the journey means more than death if the monster has his way. There's also a man who walks alone in despair, who finds a means for redemption along the infinite highway. Art, music, and religion have always had a way of enlightening our lives, but also to keep the spirits alive. The question is what will it take to save a young boy from the hands of fate and the designs of a murderer?

  • Leave People Alone

    This book is about how the Bush administration used September 11 to get away with anything it said or did. It is also about how September 11 became a turning point in the relations between the United States of America and the whole world. It is about how this administration went to war against Iraq and pretended that war was urgent as Iraq was an eminent threat and had weapons of mass destruction. It is about how this adminstration worsened the ecomony of the United States by its practices as well as the ecomony of the world. This book also shows how this adminstration helped increasing the tension between Americans and other races, especially Muslims and Arabs. The book also deals with other incidents like taking 400 girls from their mothers in Texas ploygamist ranch, which the author sees as an act of discrimination and injustice.In his book, the author mentioned that politicians usually lie about most of the things they say. For example, Is it ture that the former White House Secretary did not know the whole truth about the lies concerning Iraq? It does not sound reasonble that he just found out about that at this time. This book was written and published before knowing anything about the former Press Secretary's book.

  • How To Love People, Regardless Of Race, Creed Or Color

    The aftereffect of the book is the enhanced capacity for diversity, which comes from examining and redefining key parts of popular history, language and perceptions learned since childhood. Written with an impartial view of the past, this text shows how current ideas, perspectives, fears and realities came to be. By examining common global human attitudes and emotions in specific survival situations over time, it shows how groups and individuals have become who they are. The standard premises used to solve contemporary social problems have lacked insight. In studying the terms that we use to define our world we find clarity by understanding the mindsets that created them. The resulting new understanding can socially bring us into the 21st century. This is my planet where I live with my people. Thoughts From Our Readers:"This book is clearly about why a divided America does not get along and how it can." -A. Cottingham, Program Manager andTeen Life Coach for Student Services; a character development and self-esteem program for resident teens in Northeast Ohio.

  • Two Pharoahs: Hatshepsut and Tuthmose III

    She was the daughter of a pharaoh, beautiful, feminine, intelligent and a talented woman and the favorite of her father the reigning pharaoh. She was also married to her younger brother, whom she loved, but only as younger sibling. He was the logical successor to their father, but he died of some mysterious disease leaving his sister/wife to continue his rule. So when it came time for her to ascend the pharaoh's throne she assumed the guise of a male including a false beard, that to satisfy a population whom she felt were suspicious of her and she assumed they wanted a male pharaoh. Before her brother/husband passed away he consorted with a 'harem wife' who in turn had a son, and an heir, who should logically have the necessary qualifications to be a pharaoh. She, also, had a lover, a great Egyptian architect and builder, who built many monuments and mortuary temples, many of which stand today, thirty-five hundred years later. But what of the female pharaoh, who preceeded Cleopatra by over fifteen hundred years, and her ambitious step-son, and thus the intrigue begins.

Such activities will have the desirable effect of increasing ELL students' understanding and maturity in written expression, as well as their increased metalinguistic awareness and the use of rubrics, particularly those that target the conventions of writing.

  • A Lifelong Love: How to Have Lasting Intimacy, Friendship, and Purpose in Your Marriage

    Gary Thomas believes couples often settle for too little when it comes to marriage. We fail to understand how deeply God cares about our spouse. We diminish our need to not only understand what biblical love really is, but also to become a people who excel at it. We let ourselves drift apart instead of making the daily choices to grow closer together.

    Whether your marriage needs a complete makeover, a touch up, or just a new purpose, A Lifelong Love promises to set your relationship on an entirely new dimension. You will never look at worship or your spouse in the same way again. You will understand how living for that day will so radically transform the decisions you make this day. And Gary will guide you through the power shifts and seasonal mine fields that blow up so many marriages so that you can grow in your love instead of in your disappointment.

    Thirty years of study and two decades of working with couples has led Gary Thomas to his most significant book yet on the relationship between husband and wife. Find out for yourself what all the fuss is about--and why A Lifelong Love is sure to challenge the way the church talks about marriage.

  • Confidentiality Limits in Psychotherapy: Ethics Checklists for Mental Health Professionals

  • Tantra of the Great Liberation: Mahanirvana Tantra

    The Indian Tantras, which are numerous, constitute the Scripture (Shastra) of the Kaliyuga, and as such are the voluminous source of present and practical orthodox "Hinduism." To the Tantra we must therefore look if we would understand both ritual, yoga, and sadhana of all kinds, as also the general principles of which these practices are but the objective expression. Of all the forms of Hindu Shastra, the Tantra is that which is least known and understood, a circumstance in part due to the difficulties of its subject-matter and to the fact that the key to much of its terminology and method rest with the initiate. The present translation is, in fact, the first published in Europe of any Indian Tantra.

  • Last Full Measure of Devotion: A Tribute to America's Heroes of the Vietnam War

    There were no marching bands welcoming home returning troops from Vietnam, no ticker-tape parades for its heroes and no celebrations in Time Square. Instead, returning Vets were confronted with a range of reactions, not the least of which were indifference, silent disapproval, criticism, hostility and even contempt, in some quarters, for their lack of cleverness in not avoiding service in a war zone.Most returning Vietnam warriors were bewildered by the reactions of their fellow countrymen; but, then how could they possibly comprehend the psychological phenomenon which was only beginning to take hold and would later be named the "Vietnam Syndrome", a phenomenon which, at its extremes, was manifested in a revulsion to all things military? Even those who were proud of the returning servicemen and women were hardly effusive in their praise and greeted them with only muted enthusiasm.Most of these young veterans of an undeclared war had been shaped and molded in their formative years by the patriotic fervor which seized America during World War II and continued for perhaps a decade and a half after V. J. day. But, American society had profoundly changed in the 1960s with a shift in emphasis away from national goals to more individual ones such as civil rights, sexual liberation, pacifism, academic freedom, consciousness raising and a reaction against the excesses of the "military industrial complex", ironically named by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.The cataclysmic cultural revolution of the 1960s collided violently with the more nationalistic goals of containing the spread of international communism and curbing the expansionist policies of the Soviet Union and Red China. Those who actually fought the Vietnam War became collateral victims of a wrenching cultural war, not of their own making; for the core values of these young men and women had, for the most part, not changed. Just as the World War II generation was imbued with traditional values of patriotism, loyalty

    While working as a Nursery assistant a child sadly lost his father in a tragic car accident on Christmas eve. The child was only two years old, after searching the shops we could not find a book that came down to the level of understanding of a two year old to help him grieve and cope with such a loss. After discussing this in the staff room we thought we should write our own book. I was given the challenge, so after a few ideas put down between us I proceeded to create Special Treasure. As the story is read Special Treasure helps a child talk about their loss, in their own way. The attached work book enables them to keep their own Special Treasure. The story was inspired by my own pets Cheeko an Amazon parrot, and Star my Border collie, and their playful antics.

  • Chicken or Egg: Who Comes First?

    Chicken and Egg are best friends who love playing together but don't like losing. In the end, Chicken and Egg learn to appreciate having fun -- no matter who wins!

    With minimal words and vibrant illustrations, Chicken or Egg is a sweet and simple introduction to the concepts of good sportsmanship and losing gracefully.

    Also included is a Note to Parents, Caregivers, Teachers, and Coaches with strategies to encourage children to focus on fun, not who comes first.

    From the Note to Parents, Caregivers, Teachers, and Coaches:

    We all feel some degree of competitiveness. It's part of being human (or a chicken...or an egg!). And while competing for food may not be as critical now as it was before the advent of grocery stores, modern-day sporting events are big business--proof positive that our competitive spirit is thriving. Children feel competitive, too, although natural variations mean some children feel more competitive than others. That competitiveness may also appear with some playmates more than others, and siblings usually top the list!

    Competitiveness itself is not a bad thing, but extreme negative reactions to loss can be disruptive and upsetting when everyone is trying to have fun. Children in particular may find losing tough. Part of the reason involves their brains, which continue to grow and develop until early adulthood. Until their brains are fully mature, children don't think about and process things the way we do as adults. For one thing, they often engage in "all-or-none" thinking, which is more concrete or black and white than adult thought. So there are winners or losers, there is first or last, and there is good or bad with little understanding of any middle ground or more abstract concepts like luck. Children sometimes struggle to understand other people's viewpoints, too, so they may not appreciate how a victor might feel about a tantrum displayed by an opponent. Children may also lack the vocabulary to fully express frustration, so disappointment may surface as anger or tears instead.

    Learning to lose gracefully takes some time. But with support and practice, children can and do get better at it! Here are some strategies to help you get started.

  • Laughter: An Essay on the Meaning of Comic

    What does laughter mean? What common ground can we find between the grimace of a merry-andrew, a play upon words, an equivocal situation in a burlesque and a scene of high comedy? What method of distillation will yield us invariably the same essence from which so many different products borrow either their obtrusive odour or their delicate perfume? The greatest of thinkers, from Aristotle downwards, have tackled this little problem, which has a knack of baffling every effort, of slipping away and escaping only to bob up again, a pert challenge flung at philosophic speculation. Our excuse for attacking the problem in our turn must lie in the fact that we shall not aim at imprisoning the comic spirit within a definition. We regard it, above all, as a living thing. However trivial it may be, we shall treat it with the respect due to life. We shall confine ourselves to watching it grow and expand.

  • Sewing the Rainbow: A Story About Gilbert Baker and the Rainbow Flag

    5th-6th grade Finalist in 2019 Children's Choice Book Awards

    2019 ALA GLBT Round Table Rainbow Book List


    National Parenting Product Award Winner (NAPPA)

    Gilbert loved visiting his grandmother's clothing store. He'd sit next to her while she sewed and draw beautiful gowns and costumes. Gilbert dreamed of someday bringing these drawings to life. But one day, his father took away his art supplies and tore up his drawings. Surrounded by building blocks and Erector sets, sports gear and slingshots, Gilbert's colorful, sparkly, glittery personality started to fade, and he, too, became gray and dull and flat, just like the Kansas landscape. "When I grow up," he dreamed, "I'll go somewhere that's filled with color."

    Gilbert Baker always knew he wanted a life full of color and sparkle. In his small, gray, flat Kansas hometown, he helped his grandma sew and created his own art whenever he could. It wasn't easy; life tried over and over again to make Gilbert conform. But his sparkle always shone through. He dreamed of someday going somewhere as vibrant and colorful as he was.

    Set against the backdrop of San Francisco during the gay rights movement of the 1970s, Gilbert's story unfolds just like the flag he created: in a riot of color, joy, and pride. Today the flag is everywhere, even in the small town where Gilbert grew up!

    Includes a Reader Note that provides more in-depth discussion of the beginnings of the gay rights movement and a more detailed look into Gilbert Baker's place in our shared history.

  • Are You Guys Brothers?

    Same-sex intimacy, particularly between males, can be a challenge to maintain for gay and bisexual men, and extremely threatening to heterosexual men. Are You Guys Brothers? A question asked of male couples throughout the world, is a very personal and candid look at the topic through the lens of an immensely happy and successful 32-year relationship. Brian McNaught and Ray Struble, both Irish Catholic, Midwestern children of seven, met in Boston in their twenties as one was beginning a career as a "gay activist" and the other was entering the world of commercial banking. Their love became the envy of their families and friends, marked by open communication, good humor, patience, and spirituality. They would need all four to navigate the mine-filled waters of childhood sexual abuse, alcoholism, intense religious and political opposition, dramatically-disparate incomes, a sexually-open relationship, aging, erectile dysfunction, and an often unsupportive and frequently dysfunctional gay community. Today, they are officially married, and the "gay activist" is now educating his spouse's former Wall Street colleagues on gay issues in offices around the world. This book is funny, deeply moving, and highly instructive, of particular interest to gay men and women who seek guidance in building and maintaining their relationships, and to heterosexual men and women worldwide who want to better understand not only gay people but also how to get past the roadblocks to intimacy in their own relationships.

  • I Was A Waif And Child Servant . . .: No Regrets

    Joyce Ann Burke had a family like all others. She found herself at age seven suddenly without any family. Her parents separated in 1942 and divorced (rare for that era). Her mother had custody and left the children alone (abandoned). Joyce Ann was awarded to the court, and they in turn incorporated her into the Hendricks County, Indiana Welfare system. She was a welfare child, no parents, no love and no home. She was a textbook waif. She was placed in the country farm home of a sixty one year old widow lady who owned a 110 acre working dairy farm. You see the picture. She was tiny for seven with snow white blond hair and blue eyes. A total stranger she called Grandma would be her new mother, of sorts. Joyce Ann would be the little running legs for this sixty one year old guardian, and essentially a child servant. The white frame farm house was typical of a 1940's farm home without electricity, plumbing, and central heat. This household was totally self-supporting from the farm. Foods were grown there and preserved for winter. Animals were butchered, cows were milked, hogs were slopped and fields were tended. The days were not programmed for play. Totally unaware, she learned life's lessons, and, although sometimes reluctantly, developed a 'powerful' work ethic. Fourteen years with Grandma produced a young woman who became her own person. It was not easy and decisions she had to make many times were difficult and unfair for a child. Joyce Ann could not afford to make mistakes. Why? She had no one and no where to go.

  • Raising Abraham

    It all began with a chance meeting on an airplane. Her name was never mentioned; she was finishing up law school and we began to converse about her education and her desire to succeed as a lawyer. She was an impressive young woman and her drive and charisma were inspirational to me.As I reflected on that chance meeting in the following days, I contemplated the qualities that take someone on the path to success and contribution. I thought afresh about the caliber of person who leaves their mark on their generation, who passes on a legacy of experience, education, self-sacrifice and character. And in the process of that time of reflection, I found myself compelled to sit at the computer and develop the story of 'Mary', a woman driven to developing a better life for herself and her young son in the wake of the murder of her husband. The odds against her are overwhelming; she is young, uneducated, a black mother struggling against the on-going tide of racism in rural Mississippi in the final salvos of World War II. Segregation is still the norm, prejudice still the birthright. But human spirit, drive and desire for legacy and contribution can overcome the darkest of blights. And so the story of Raising Abraham was born, a recipe mixed from a real-life unsolved murder of a sharecropper in my home county and a chance meeting on an airplane six decades later.

    The aims of this study of Nature Mysticism, and the methods adopted for attaining them, are described in the introductory chapter.

Moreover, he tries to be abreast of the latest critical and scientific conclusions. -from the Preface

  • Space Exploration: The Impact of Science and Technology

    Humans have explored Earth, its Moon, and its atmosphere, but people have traveled hardly any distance into space. The vast distances between stars and galaxies mean that scientists on Earth study most of the universe from far away. Exploring space offers its own unique challenges and rewards.

This book goes beyond the science to explore the pros and cons of each new development, and examines the ways in which space exploration has changed our society and the world.

  • Lincoln's Use of the Bible

    In a log cabin at Nolin's Creek, Hardin County, Kentucky, the boy Abraham Lincoln breathed the first breath of life. Hope's anchor hung on a slender string, if we are to measure by the child's home surroundings. But his birthplace possessed a soul; for a home with a good book in it has a soul. This book was the Bible. It mastered his manners, molded his mind, made mighty his manhood, and gave to America the matchless man. In the Bible he found the truth for the ills of men, the secret for the solution of life's perplexing problems, the boon for the best beaten path, the succor for the suffering, the calmest comforts for the dying, and the faithful friend.

  • From Warrior to Sage: A Guide for Moving Beyond the Ego

    We each have to learn the lessons of the elders, and usually we do so the hard way; by having to go through the same phases of life that others who came before and tried to warn us about life. As a young, assistant professor I assumed I knew it all. I was going to work hard, do a lot of research, publish well, and meet my responsibilities as a teacher. Some where along this path I realized I was incomplete. I needed something more that the scientific method to guide my life. By now I was a father and deeply involved in my career. I did accept the Headship as I knew I could do it, and I knew it had to be done. Yet, the job is very hard, and is filled with lots of inter-personal conflicts with staff and faculty. I was glad to shed that role while I was young enough to have time to do some deep explorations of my life. I believe my first step in this direction began with a newly formed Unitarian Church in West Knoxville and with our minister, Dillman Sorrells. I next credit Carol Pearson for opening up an entire new area to me. I got her first book, contacted her, and joined her seminar titled Journey Guides. I was introduced to Carl Jung anew and in a form I had not encountered in my earlier studies. Pearson's use of archetypes was fascinating to me and I began to see how they worked in my life. By now I had begun to move out of the ego stage into the inter-mediate stage of the soul that later leads us to be archetype of the sage. I believe that my teaching improved in the latter years of my career, and I feel that I learned a great deal from my students. One of the first lessons I learned was to allow my intuition to work for me. My personality tends toward the sensing and thinking type, rather than the intuitive and feeling type. But, I learned how to work against my type. About this time I first learned of the Meyers-Briggs Type Test at a leadership school run for Unitarians. Things seemed to be coming together for me. Then I chanced upon the work by Carol Gilligan, Anne Schaef, and James Hillman. I began to get the idea for this book. I began my thinking about the women's movement and what appeared to be a counter movement by men but abandoned that approach as the men's movement lost its way. By now I was moving into the role of the magician who could offer by example things in a way that students could use them in the daily life. As I write in Chapter 5, I asked my students to write a brief reaction to the course, and I got so much pleasure from the comments made by my students. By now I was not teaching only facts, and was not evaluating the students in the traditional way. I often think about all the stuff I learned in graduate school that I never had reason to use in my later life. Just as it was in preflight training, we had to learn how to navigate by the stars, sun, and moon. We never did that later as we navigated by electronic instruments. It is rather like a psychiatrist having to learn all the bones of the human foot, to be able to earn the M. D. and enter a residency in psychiatry. But, that is the way it works. I think of my book as a road map for persons who are interested in reaching the level of the sage and magician. Not all will do that, and many will not even understand what it is about. But for the sage, that does not matter. If only a few can profit from my work, I have fulfilled my calling.

  • Discovering Gurdjieff

    "This book is very valuable. Today, there are too many books on the Work that are either deliberately impersonal and as a result are just a re-explaining of basic ideas which are already there in Ouspensky. Or else, the purely subjective 'what I felt, what I experienced'. Dorothy strikes a good balance, because the subjective experience in this context is the ground through which precious memories of the Work in its early and soon-to-be forgotten period can be shared." Peter Brook (Author, Film and Theatre Director, and a student of Gurdjieff himself)

  • Grumpy Young Man: the incoherent mutterings of a humanitarian misanthrope

    "People look at me, with my eclectic tastes, and eccentricity, and think, There goes a weird bastard. Admittedly I dress like a country squire, and have the oddest accent you will ever encounter. I would describe myself more as a 'bohemian gentleman'..." Also sprachen Vaughan Humphries - aka the Irascible Kiwi - whose valiant attempts to live up to the iconic status of New Zealand's Grumpy Young Man are continuously subverted by a fatal and irredeemably cheerful optimism. From grumpy to cheerful and back again. If only life was that simple ... but things are not quite as they seem ... It was only not until he finished his undergraduate studies that he had an epiphany, when he started to make sense of a lot of things in his life that had never quite added up. Vaughan was raised for a society that no longer exists. He is a man out of time with his generation, putting the world to right with peers that are old enough to be his parents and grandparents. From his childhood in the suburbs of NaeNae in Lower Hutt, New Zealand, through to his arrival in England at the age of 22, Grumpy Young Man covers his curious life and times throughout all points of the globe. Before you read on, a few words of caution ... The first rule of Grumpy Young Man is that it never quite sticks to the point - it's funny, irreverent, discursive, usually politically incorrect and definitely written from a male point of view. The second rule of Grumpy Young Man is that it never even begins to stick to the point, so if you're looking for a pointy sticky rulebook, don't even think of reading any further.

  • Cultural Humility: Engaging Diverse Identities in Therapy

    This book describes how therapists can combine multicultural theory with their own lived experience to meaningfully engage clients in issues of culture. Many mental health practitioners (MHPs) today recognize and affirm the importance of cultural background--race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, et al--in their clients' lives. But many MHPs struggle to address cultural issues in practice, whether because of unfamiliarity, or fear of giving offense, or because the presence of cultural differences or similarities between client and therapist that can make it difficult to view the client objectively.

    The authors of this book recommend that MHPs focus not on what they have learned in previous clinical or educational settings, but on what they don't know about the client who sits across from them. They discuss practical strategies for engaging with clients and their cultural identities, including repairing mistakes that threaten the therapeutic relationship. Through a wide range of case examples and hands-on exercises, the authors demonstrate how therapists can learn to acknowledge their limitations, and view them as opportunities to connect with clients at a deeper level.

  • Modern Parliamentary Procedure

    In 1971, Ray Keesey developed a guidebook that revolutionized parliamentary procedure. By eliminating misleading terminology and simplifying many of the complex and overly technical aspects of the traditional parliamentary process, Keesey's book offered clear rules of order for efficient democratic action in deliberative meetings. Thanks to its accessibility and lack of jargon, the Keesey System has become widely used by large deliberative bodies and small associations alike, allowing readers to quickly comprehend and implement the rules without needing to be experts on parliamentary process.

    Revised and updated with the expertise of the American Institute of Parliamentarians, this second edition includes rules that relate to technological innovations such as electronic voting and offsite attendees. Key features include a more logical classification of parliamentary motions, the elimination of superfluous motions, and key recommendations for preventing and managing disruptions. This book is an essential reference for associations, clubs, student groups, and larger deliberative bodies seeking clear and effective procedural rules.

  • Frustrations Teaching Math

    Having the opportunity to teach math for over 25 years, I have found many days when you hit a brick wall. Whether it was in middle school, junior or senior high school, or at the community college, there were days when the new topic was not understood by the students. I could see it in their reaction (faces) to my explanation. Sometimes, I was the culprit. Knowing full well that the homework is a review of that day?s topic, it must be delayed. As an educator teaching math, the crescendo of each day builds, as we go further into the school calendar. Someone, who missed out and could not grasp the idea, needed to be tutored. That luxury is not available. FRUSTRATIONS TEACHING MATH, gives the student an opportunity to see how basic math ideas are solved. Sometimes, I give two scenarios in solving a problem. Other times, a ?cheating way? is shown, so that math can be understood and also be fun. Some of the topics covered are the various ways to factor a binomial, trinomial, or polynomial. Another favorite is grasping the concept of greatest common factor or least common multiple. Right triangle trigonometry for the middle school student is explained using boating as the source of frustration. How much to tip at a restaurant? What does a half-off sale really mean? Let us not forget the ?story? or word problems that really cause concerns. Distance! Rate! Time! All these ideas plus games and many more mathematical topics are reviewed on my 45 day road trip from Delaware to Florida. Coming back, with several stops on the way home, we?ll explore these ?frustrations?.

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Clinical Guide for General Practitioners

    During the Second World War Britain was so short of vital coal supplies and coal miners that the authorities offered ex miners in the armed forces the opportunity to return to mining. This offer was a failure, so conscription was introduced. At 18, fit young men, chosen by ballot, were conscripted for underground coal mining and became what were known as Bevin Boys, named after Ernest Bevin the Minister of Labour whose scheme it was.Most of the conscripts had never seen a coal mine.

  • Eye of the Storm: Inside City Hall During Katrina

    When Hurricane Katrina, the worst natural disaster in the history of the United States, hit the Gulf Coast on August 29, 2005, few people could believe the horror and destruction that would unfold in the days that followed. As Communications Director for the City of New Orleans, Sally Forman went to work two days before the storm approached with no indication that she or the city were in harm's way. But within 72 hours, hurricane force winds were shattering windows throughout the downtown hotel where she had bunkered down with other members of the City Hall Executive Staff. The next ten days, chronicled here, became an unforgettable time in our nation's history. With almost 2,000 deaths, destruction covering four states and a million and a half people needing shelter, the world responded quickly and fiercely. Over 75 countries and 80 percent of Americans contributed to the relief of hurricane survivors and aid workers. Throughout the world, Katrina raised questions of humanity and exposed the vulnerabilities we still face as a nation. Through this personal and historical journal, Forman offers an insider's view of life in a disaster zone where communications and resources were practically non-existent. She also examines her own role and the role of other officials as wide-ranging disaster struck a major American city.

The kitchen, of course. Now, I'm sure you know your way around the other rooms, especially the one with the queen-sized you-know-what, but as I'm prone to mention from time to time, one of the ways to a man's heart is through his stomach, which means you'll have to spend some time in the kitchen cooking!"

  • Methodological Approaches to Community-Based Research

    A prevailing paradigm in social research and community-based interventions involves examining individual problems within various contexts from the interpersonal to the community at large. Yet the research methodologies used to support these interventions typically lack the ability to consider data from this multilevel, systemic perspective.

    Methodological Approaches to Community-Based Research presents a range of innovative research methodologies that address this basic problem in community-based research frameworks, thereby facilitating more encompassing and more nuanced analyses and interventions. Contributors to this groundbreaking volume offer appropriate methodologies for addressing specific, community-based problems that are relevant to both researchers and practitioners involved in designing, implementing, and evaluating social, health, and education programs from a variety of perspectives, including community psychology, developmental psychology and ageing, health and rehabilitation psychology, neuropsychology, industrial/organisational psychology, and consumer psychology, among them.

    Part I presents chapters on the implications of mixed-methods research for the producers and consumers of such research. Parts IIIV present chapters on methodologies that involve the grouping of data (such as cluster analysis and meta-analysis), change over time (such as time series analysis and survival analysis), and the context of behaviour and community-wide interventions (such as multilevel modelling, epidemiological approaches, and geographic information systems).

    A special feature of Methodological Approaches to Community-Based Research are Web Appendixes that include a variety of research applications (e.g., SPSS, SAS, Mplus, GIS) and detailed guidelines on how to run the applications for analysing the accompanying data sets.

  • The Impossible Dream

    Build an agricultural school in the driest desert in the world? That was what the Chilean Methodist Church asked of veteran agricultural/rural development missionary Stanley Moore. He arrived with his wife, Beryl, and youngest son Andrew, in the northern Chilean port city of Iquique in September of 1988, questioning the logic of the task to which he had been assigned. But soon it became apparent why he was being asked to undertake this seemingly senseless assignment. The livelihood of the 14,000 Aymara Indians who lived in the northern Andes depended on agriculture. Their very lives were reliant on what crops they could grow in the areas where sufficient water from precipitation in the high elevations made cultivation possible. Yet there was no agricultural school within a thousand miles for the youth to learn modern technology that, combined with time-tested traditional practices, could help improve production and consequently improve their lives. He soon found, however, that for this project, there was no budget, no office, not even a typewriter or a sheet of paper. Worse yet, he was handed a $23,000 debt resulting from the purchase of a bus three years prior to his arrival, intended for a similar program that never got off the ground. The task seemed impossible. This is the story of how that "Impossible Dream" became a reality.

  • The Final Empire: The Collapse of Civilization and the Seed of the Future

    In spite of its tough message, there is much compassion and humanity in The Final Empire. Right away as you begin to read this work, you sense increasingly the grand perspective in Kotke's words. He is not speaking of anarchy. He is offering vital common sense. It's just that his meaning is so unavoidably political. And so much against what we have been taught all our lives: The materialistic values of civilization teach us that the accumulation of wealth is progress. The material wealth of the civilization is derived from the death of the earth, the soils, the forests, the fish stocks, the 'free resources' of flora and fauna. The ultimate end of this is for all human species to live in giant parasitical cities of cement and metal while surrounded by deserts of exhausted soils. The simple polar opposites are: the richness and wealth of the natural life of earth versus the material wealth of people living out their lives in artificial environments. This amounts to a direct challenge to humankind. A demand for radical change. A re-envisioning of our part in the community of life and the precepts of individuality. And Mr. Kotke provides a strong argument for this case. He traces the environmental scars of civilization through the ages. Empire after empire, desertification of the top soil winds its way around the globe in an erosive helix from China to India to Mesopotamia to Italy to North America. As radical as it may seem at first glance, The Final Empire is a necessary and sensible primer for the recovery of the planet. It blends a critical statistical analysis of our deteriorating environment with a positivism of hope for a post-empire age and a new whole-human relation to the living community of Earth. Dan Armstrong, Author of the Novels, Prairie Fire and Taming the Dragon

  • The Nephiad: An Epic Poem in XII Books

    Constructed around a key episode in the Book of Mormon, The Nephiad blends the rigidly-defined structures and grand style of Renaissance epic with modern-day scripture to re-create a genre that is at once uplifting and compelling. From readers of The Nephiad: "The epic is an ancient literary genre, but many Mormon writings have attempted to write within this genre because of its grand scope and lofty intentions for communicating vital components of a given culture or belief system. Indeed, the Book of Mormon itself has been called an epic, and it shares many components of the epic genre. Most notably, many Mormon poets have attempted to compose epics, including Orson F. Whitney, Paul Cracroft, and Michael Collings.... The Nephiad is very enjoyable to this fan of Milton, blank verse, and LDS efforts to fulfill Orson Whitney's prophecy for Miltons and Shakespeares of our own.... The way [Collings blends] the standard literary canon with our sacred canon and our cultural history is a unique contribution to Mormon literature." - Gideon Burton, Professor of English, Brigham Young University

  • The Heart and Soul of Change: Delivering What Works in Therapy

    Updating the classic first edition of The Heart and Soul of Change, editors Duncan, Miller, Wampold, and Hubble, have created a new and enriched volume that presents the most recent research on what works in therapeutic practice, a thorough analysis of this research, and practical guidance on how a therapist can truly 'deliver what works in therapy'.

The second edition of The Heart and Soul of Change also demonstrates the power of systematic client feedback to improve effectiveness and efficiency and legitimize psychotherapy services to third party payers. In this way, psychotherapy is implemented one person at a time, based on that unique individual's perceptions of the progress and fit of the therapy and therapist. Readers familiar with the first edition will encounter the same pragmatic focus but with a larger breadth of coverage - this edition adds chapters on both youth psychotherapy and substance abuse treatment.

  • So You Want To Be A Cartoonist?!!

    Ralph, Jr. was a very prolific poet, writer, editor and cartoonist. In 2001, he had a serious auto accident in which he suffered a torn aorta.

We are pleased to publish this book in memory of our beloved son, Ralph, Jr. We thank the many friends and relatives who contributed to the publishing fund.

To make such a relationship successful, the authors maintain that a feeling of love is not enough. They show how various aspects of cultural differences can be problematic and sometimes fatal to the relationship, unless certain conditions are met. The conditions are, among some, that the partners become reasonably more and more mature (according to the specific definition of maturity offered in this book), willing and able to think and to talk about their cultural differences (such as in manners, values, worldview, holidays and other customs), learn to understand and respect those differences, find solutions to their conflicts and discover enough things they can celebrate and enjoy together. The book helps partners think through vital topics of differences they must face eventually, such as their differing family backgrounds, expectations, tastes, values, worldview, as well as their future country or place of residence. The pervading metaphor throughout the book is of two artists who commit to producing a life-time project of artwork together, using their differing skills, communication styles, colors, craft paint, tools, and canvas. Just as these artists bring their various backgrounds and supplies to the task, each partner in a committed marriage relationship contributes his or her preferences (values, worldview, customs, etc) and ways of communicating. Questions to think and talk about, which are cited throughout the book, are again listed in the back of the book for copying and giving to the partner to use. A list of possible priorities of choice, also in the back, can be used any of three ways: (1) to help the reader determine whether a long-term partnership with a particular person from another culture would really suit or not, or (2), to test to see how

  • Total Quality Management (TQM)

    This book - "Total Quality Management" - should be of interest to managers of all levels in; public sector, private sector, and voluntary organisations.

  • Ancient Chinese Prophecies: Till the End of the World

    ANCIENT CHINESE PROPHECIES TILL THE END OF THE WORLD, contains prophecies on events in China and the world, spanning over five thousand years, and till the end of the world as we know it. More recent prophecies are about the Red Guards, the Gang of Four in China, and the future of Taiwan. But, how dangerous is the conflict between the U.S. and China over Taiwan? Will China be unified? When? What will happen to the U.S., China, and the world? What effect does the lure of American style democracy and consumerism have on China? In the distant future, will there be an Apocalypse? Armageddon? When will this happen? Thereafter, Utopia and racial harmony, or the end of the world? Again, when will all this happen? The prophecies are translated from the works of Imperial Astrologers from Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), a Prime Minister from the Three Kingdoms period (220-280 AD), and the first Prime Minister from Zhou Dynasty (1122-221 BC). Since the publication of the first edition in 2000, and the second edition in 2002, many prophecies have already become realities. National Missile Defense, NMD, is to contain Russia and China. Even with the war on terrorism after 9-11, U.S., Taiwan and Japan co-operate to guard against China, and Taiwan independence advocates even want to drag the U.S. into fighting for them. Taiwan's staged presidential assassination on March 19, 2004, is predicted in Diagram 41. This third edition includes the original Chinese scripture, and states the year when China and the U.S. will collide over Taiwan. The prophecies in this book can be interpreted more clearly than those of Nostradamus!

  • Biopsychosocial Practice: A Science-Based Framework for Behavioral Health Care

    Throughout the history of mental health practice, conflicting and irreconcilable theories have caused confusion about how disorders form, what they look like, and how they should be assessed and treated. But thanks to dramatic scientific advances in recent years, these patchwork theories can now be replaced by a unified, science-based, biopsychosocial framework for behavioral healthcare.

    This book presents the essential scientific and ethical foundations of the biopsychosocial framework and then applies it across the treatment process, from intake through outcome assessment. In doing so, the book provides a critical basis for the increasingly integrated healthcare systems of the 21st century.

  • El Oráculo de Las Tres Tortugas

    El "Sueno Americano" no es solamente americano, es un sueno universal. La razon por la cual lo llaman "Americano" es quizas porque principalmente en Norteamerica existen los medios materiales e institucionales para realizarlo. De todos los rincones del mundo, y sobre todo de America Latina, confluyen ano tras ano a los Estados Unidos en pos de ese sueno bandadas de hombres y mujeres, al igual que confluyen las golondrinas a San Juan Capistrano. Asi lo hicieron los protagonistas de esta historia. Sin embargo, sus cualidades y sus limitaciones, asi como la problematica del trafico de droga endemico para Colombia, los llevaron, como los vientos llevan a un velero sobre las olas embravecidas del mar, a una serie de situaciones angustiosas, tristes, felices, increibles, letales . . . en donde su valentia, inteligencia, constancia, astucia y amor se pusieron a prueba al rojo vivo! Su odisea es tan real como inverosimil; y las situaciones por las que ellos pasan nos llevaran de la admiracion al suspenso, de la risa a la ternura, de la intriga al asombro. En el horizonte de esta historia despuntan verdades e incognitas trascendentales. Entre las verdades trascendentales (y ejemplares diria yo) estan: el amor conyugal, el amor al trabajo, el valor, la comprension, la fe. Entre las incognitas trascendentales resuenan las siguientes: Puede el hombre en realidad ser "el arquitecto de su propio destino?" Puede ser la supersticion otra forma de la fe? Tienen, nuestros nombres alguna influencia en nuestras vidas? Es la corrupcion una lacra continental inacabable? . . . Las luchas, victorias y fracasos de estos seres excepcionales reflejan nuestras propias luchas, victorias y fracasos, y nos transportan a una dimension magica antes de que nuestros heroes puedan alcanzar ese anhelado sueno . . . y aun despues de alcanzarlo. O se podra decir acaso que ellos si lo alcanzaron? Veamos.

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

    Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a unique empirically based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness processes, and commitment and behavior change processes to produce psychological flexibility. Steven C. Hayes, who helped develop ACT, and co-author Jason Lillis provide an overview of ACT's main influences and its basic principles.

    In this succinct and understandable survey, the authors show how ACT illuminates the ways that language encourages unhelpful skirmishing in clients' psychic lives, and how to use ACT to help clients accept private experiences, become more mindful of thoughts, develop greater clarity about personal values, and commit to needed behavior change.

    Acceptance and Commitment Therapy examines the therapy's history and process, evaluates the therapy's evidence base and effectiveness, and suggests future directions in the therapy's development.

  • The Location Code - The Best Place to Live: Are You Succesful PRESENTLY WHERE YOU ARE?

    HAVE NOTICED THAT SOME LOCATIONS ARE MORE PROSPEROUS THAN OTHERS? DID YOU NOTICE THAT CERTAIN HOMES FEEL DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS? WHY SOME PEOPLE ENJOY VISITING A LOCATION MORE THAN ANOTHER ONE?THIS BOOK ANSWERS THESE QUESTIONS....People who have been on both the Northern and Southern Hemispheresknow that the water runs down a drain in counter-clockwise direction south ofthe equator and clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere. Hurricanes, tornadoes and otherlow-pressure storm centers in the NorthernHemisphereswirl in the counter-clockwise motion, but in the Southern Hemisphere this isreversed. Even smoke spirals upward in the opposite direction on each half ofthe Earth. If seen from "above,"(North) the planets of the solar system appear to rotate counter-clockwisemotion. From the southern side of the solar system ("below"), theywould be seen to rotate in the opposite direction. No civilization of any kind has everoriginated in the Southern Hemisphere; people from the Northern Hemispherefounded every modern nation existing south of the equator today. This dominanceof the north over the south manifests itself even among nations, states, andcities. Wherever a war or conflict has arisen, either civil or international,the northern nation-or northern part of that nation-emerges victorious ordominant. Southern Ireland is one example; both before and after their American CivilWar, the North dominated the South in this country, and it still does. AlthoughWashington, D.C.is the nation's Capital, New York is thefinancial center of this country (New Yorkbeing farther north than Washington).

  • The Nimrods

    The Nimrods is an important new book for two reasons. First, it is an accurate true-life story, told by an A-26 navigator/co-pilot who flew 182 combat missions in the Vietnam War, about a magnificent band of A-26 pilots and navigator/co-pilots who flew--from 1966 to 1969--countless high-intensity nighttime dive-bombing missions in "The Secret War in Laos" (Steel Tiger, Barrel Roll and along the Ho Chi Minh Trail). To illustrate the intensity of the dive-bombing missions in the Vietnam War, the writer describes, in detail, more than twenty separate unforgettable missions-and more importantly-the personalities and psychological reactions of all of the unforgettable characters who were a part of the 609th Special Operations Squadron. Second, the book is highly relevant to the current Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the Global War on Terror, because it addresses the lessons learned in the Vietnam War (and World War II and the Korean War) and advocates that Americans and their allies apply those lessons learned to terrorism and renewed threats of nuclear war from tyrants and terrorists around the world. This is a book whose time has come. The views of our military veterans and their families who have endured the life-threatening and life-changing experiences of combat are made known to the American public and our allies. Recommendations from The Iraq Study Group Report, and President Bush's new Iraq strategy, are reviewed and analyzed. The book articulates a new way forward and a new vision that can be embraced by the entire world, and contrasts the vision of America and its allies with the vision of Osama bin Laden and the radical Islamic terrorists who threaten the security of the entire world.

  • What is Love Intelligence?

    In a world where we are starting to recognise and understand the importance of other types of intelligence other than IQ, this book uses a philosophical and Socratic approach to introduce the concept of Love Intelligence. It uses well established principles of psychiatry, psychology, sociology, physics and learning theory to draw closer attention to the sometimes unrecognised processes of love. It discusses how we can begin to recognise the threads of the process of Love Intelligence running through history and growing in expression and influence. How we can make better sense, and a more peaceful, harmonious and uniting sense of life and our world through increased awareness, improved expression and increased propagation of Love Intelligence. How Love Intelligence can introduce positive energy, progress, hope and optimism into the dynamics of all forms of relationships. It also uses a collective narrative style, humour and poetry to explore complex issues that can also involve Love Intelligence. Love Intelligence is identified as a promising form of intelligence that is also and more so of the future, its further growth anticipated to help improve our individual, social and collective intelligence and relationships.

  • APA Handbook of Human Systems Integration

    The APA Handbook of Human Systems Integration is a practical tool for both students and professionals who need specific knowledge about human considerations in systems design. It is intended to sensitize readers to basic design issues, enhance their understanding of the influence of these issues, and guide them in appropriately combining human performance with a system's numerous interacting components. A central tenet of this book is that it is not sufficient to examine items independently - one must go beyond a focus on individual workers, tools, tasks, or environments. Thus, the handbook is a ""how to"" resource that reflects the state-of-the-art on work in this enterprise. The book's opening chapters define what is meant by human systems integration, provide a historical overview of the field, and describe a set of case studies to which many chapter authors apply their expertise. Succeeding chapters reflect on the physical, physiological, perceptual, cognitive, and organizational considerations that affect human systems performance and discuss how the knowledge base of the field has been applied in various domains. The remaining chapters describe the trade-offs associated with integrating individual considerations and systems performance, discussing how a decision that optimizes performance in one area (e.g., display design) may entail a reduction of performance in another area (e.g., staffing or personnel selection).

  • An Account of Egypt

    Translated by George Campbell Macaulay

  • From Classroom to Courtroom

    From Classroom to Courtroom tells the story of how fifteen American university academics in a Middle Eastern Studies department got embroiled in serious unacademic conflicts with serious consequences. From 1994 onward, these academic colleagues made or faced official complaints and allegations of favoritism, intimidation, abuse, harassment, and racism, and charges of prevarication and dishonesty, and ethnic, religious, and gender discrimination. They initiated three or four faculty grievances. An exodus of graduate students from the department consequently took place. Five or six faculty careers ended in the process, which culminated in a law suit. From Classroom to Courtroom details behavior of the author and six or seven of his departmental colleagues and two university administrators in conflict situations within, between, and among the department's Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, and Turkish sections. The author develops this part of the narrative mostly through a paper trail of official letters, reports, memoranda, e-messages, and court deposition testimony In highlighting cross-cultural dimensions of cited conflicts, From Classroom to Courtroom suggests arguably culture-specific behavior on the part of departmental colleagues, only two of them born in America. Such behavior, the book implies, may derive from cultural conflicts between some academics of Arab, Iranian, and Israeli origin, on the one hand, and American academics of European origin, on the other, between some Muslim and Christian Arabs and some Jewish Israelis, and between some Middle Eastern and American men and some Middle Eastern women. In its chronological narrative leading up to a law suit filed by an Arab Muslim woman academic against her department and college, From Classroom to Courtroom also tells the story of the book's author and first-person narrator, describing the daily life of a Middle East language/literature professor at a large state university, a life of teaching, writing, departmental politics, family, and travel.

  • Born Without A Silver Spoon...

    John was a curious and scared child who, due to circumstances, was forced to grow up at a very young age. He grew up a loner and although was a bright and very intelligent child he did not have the upbringing that we all hope for our children. He was placed in instituations from a very young age and through out his whole life has had to deal with things we wish no-one has too.After hearing his fascinating story I decided, with his agreement, that it should be told to the world. Although it can not change the past, it might make people aware of what is happening in the world to try and stop it happening again.... to other scared vunerable children.This story is a true life story and the events have happened. I have, although, altered names and places for the protection of those involved.I hope you find his story as interesting and fascinating as I have.

  • The Great Potato Bake-off

    The Great Potato Bake-Off" is a hilarious, educational children's story set in a tiny town called Spudsville. These potatoes of different color and sizes proudly anticipate the onset of a contest in which they will be judged for their tasty qualities. This story abounds those who have gone before them, proudly ending us as French fries, Baked or Mashed potatoes. With tension running high, the perplexed judges finally decided, that no potato is better than the other. It is a fictitious potato contest that demonstrates the ways in which the color of an individual's skin does not indicate their value as a person. The story is intended to show us why we must eliminate the ways people tend to divide people. My sister wrote this story as an appeal to young readers by sharing with them a new theme for learning a most valuable lesson.

  • Life's Harder Than Ever

    This is the second book continuing on with the story of my life; I thought that life in general was hard enough before but who knows what can happen. I was totally wrong in thinking that I had it all planned out.Life throws all kinds of challenges at me and I do endeavor to take up these challenges and try to make the best of what I have no matter how hard or painful it becomes. Just when I think that I've had the worst of it yet another problem raises its ugly head. When these problems and hardships arise in my life I always try to face them head on but as I grow older I am finding it much harder to cope with them. I have always said to people that no matter what happens I will always spring back the trouble is, my spring is getting a bit weak now.2004, 2005 were very traumatic years for Natalie and myself more than anyone else, although Marie was a constant source of support and comfort to the pair of us in those dark and dismal times. In 2007 however, everything was to change indeed our whole way of life was to become harder in many ways. There's an old saying there's nowt as queer as folk, by hell that's true and I found out first hand just how people who are supposed to be your friends can turn against you with dramatic consequences. I have found out only through making major mistakes in my life that everyone is a suspect; it's only through sheer determination and courage that I have found the strength to carry on and to look out for my family and indeed for myself to the best of my ability.

  • Democracy by Diplomacy

    For more than twenty-five years, the tiny independent island-states of the English-speaking Caribbean have been dispatching diplomats to the United Nations, the Organization of American States, the Commonwealth of Nations, and to many capitals including Washington and London. This book recalls the heroic instances when the diplomats from these tiny states succeeded in keeping the USA, the world's lone superpower, true to its democratic creed. The USA is inclined to abandon democratic ideals when other interests are at stake. The Caribbean diplomats have helped to improve US world- and regional-leadership by challenging the US when it was willing to stray; and, they have improved the lives of millions of people in Latin America and the Caribbean by their insistence on democratic ideals at every juncture. The diplomats and leaders from the tiny Caribbean states have utilized the multilateral institutions where they sit at table with the USA to make themselves a moral force for good. How could tiny states possibly compel changes in US foreign policy? A former Ambassador to the UN, the USA and the OAS answers this question in Democracy by Diplomacy.

  • The New Testament

    In every edition since 1560, the Holy Bible has been formatted for ease of reference and use in church meetings. As useful as that is, it also tends to obscure the nature of the original record. The Bible is much more than verse after verse of identically formatted text; it includes ancient headings, direct quotations, majestic poetry, and much more. The Readable Scriptures edition uses the standard King James Version of the New Testament but removes the modern overlay of verse numbers, double columns, chapter summaries, and cross-references; then it formats the text based on the content of the record itself--as headings, poetry, block quotations, or whatever is required, including modern paragraphing to organize verses in context. The result is an edition that shows the underlying structure of the ancient documents and is easy to read and understand. Appropriately formatting the text of the Bible does more than increase understanding, however; it also helps reveal the complexity and sophistication of this remarkable collection of sacred records. For all who are serious students of the scriptures, this new edition will pay rich dividends in deeper comprehension and enhanced appreciation.

  • The Art of Dramatic Writing: Its Basis in the Creative Interpretation of Human Motives

    Amid the hundreds of "how-to" books that have appeared in recent years, there have been very few which attempted to analyze the mysteries of play-construction. This book does that - and its principles are so valid that they apply equally well to the short story, novel and screenplay. Lajos Egri examines a play from the inside out, starting with the heart of any drama: its characters. For it is people - their private natures and their inter-relationships - that move a story and give it life. All good dramatic writing depends upon an understanding of human motives. Why do people act as they do? What forces tranform a coward into a hero, a hero into a coward? What is it that Romeo does early in Shakespeare's play that makes his later suicide seem inevitable? Why must Nora leave her husband at the end of A Doll's House? These are a few of the fascinating problems which Egri analyzes. He shows how it is essential for the author to have a basic premise - a thesis, demonstrated in terms of human behavior - and to develop his dramatic conflict on the basis of that behavior. Premise, character, conflict: this is Egri's ABC. His book is a direct, jargon-free approach to the problem of achieving truth in a literary creation.

  • Souls Reunited: A story of rebirth and reunion of souls

    This is a story about a past life as communicated to me by my spirit guide, initially through automatic writing thirteen years ago which came as a complete surprise to all involved and more recently through clairvoyance which again, came as a surprise after a period of nine years during which there was no contact.This story is set in a period of history that is referred to as the Dark Ages and involves a partnership which spans the centuries of time. It begins in the eighth century when little is known about life in England although it appears to be a relatively peaceful period in a history of tumultuous times.It is a story about Wulfgand, a Saxon warrior/farmer who was born in Germany and who eventually settled in a small Cornish village and Griselda whom he met there, fell in love with and married. Griselda's spirit stayed in the land where they lived after she died and was recalled several centuries later by a gentleman practising white witchcraft or pagan rituals on the same land. This gentleman brought forward the spirits of the earth and so he was brought together with the spirit of Griselda.My spirit guide today is Wulfgand and I was his wife, Griselda, in our past life. The gentleman carrying out the pagan practices was Eddie, my husband in this life.My investigations and research into corroboration of given facts from spirit have been rewarding and have led me to retrace my steps to the village in West Cornwall where I once lived.This is a story of rebirth, reunion and an intertwining of souls up to the present day.

  • Sanae Mentis: Drugs - A Son's Addiction, other Teens and the System. A Fathers Devotion

    SANAE MENTIS provides a provocative discourse into the social ills confronting our youth today. With startling disclosures, it addresses the reality of two worlds converging, both expressive of life itself, as only each has experienced it. The author sets out to delve into the hearts of these young people in a quest to understand what has increasingly professed itself as a degenerative nature with uncompromising voice. Sanae Mentis allows us to hear the crying voices of children who are in need of help, as they struggle to survive in a world which has changed so rapidly and promiscuously at their expense.As an educator, parent, and counselor, I find this book to be significantly worthy in its portrayal of youth in crisis. The poignant stories of its characters, serve to remind all of us that 'no man is an island.'The overriding moral responsibility of a civilized society is designed to nurture and provide our children with the opportunity to become productive and creditable citizens. We must prepare them holistically, to face the challenges of today and tomorrow's world.Not withstanding our own coup d'etat, adults must collectively acknowledge their precarious roles in having created these potentially negative and explosive scenarios. Righting the wrong, that we have in our society, can only be done by recapturing the definitive integrity and sound authority of our moral values. Then and only then, can we thwart the decaying values of a generation trapped in regrettable chaos and detrimental conflict. The stage must be set on a proper course toward a positive mode.As a wife and mother, I applaud the efforts of the author in sharing his story with all of us who share the joy and yes, the pain of raising children who will ultimately shape the face of centuries to come.

  • Career Counseling

    In this second edition of Career Counseling, Mark L. Savickas updates his influential approach to reflect recent trends in the modern workplace such as telework, the increased use of temporary employees, and the emerging "gig economy."

    Career and vocational guidance have existed since the early 20th century, and has centered primarily around interest inventories and ways to match individuals to jobs. Savickas discusses and reviews this history as he presents his 21st century theory of career counseling: a therapeutic form completely different from traditional vocational guidance or career education. Rather than assuming that a person's interests and traits exist a priori and are ready to be matched to a particular career, this narrative approach recognizes the power of the individual to construct their own career story. In this book, Savickas explores his practical approach: its theory, history, therapy process, primary change mechanisms, and the empirical basis for its effectiveness. This essential primer, amply illustrated with case examples featuring diverse clients, is perfect for graduate students studying theories of therapy and counseling, as well as for seasoned practitioners interested in understanding this approach and how it might be used in their practice.

  • The Eurhythmics of Jaques-Dalcroze

    "Rhythmische Gymnastik" is the name by which the Dalcroze method is known in Germany, but whether or not the German words are adequate, their literal translation into English certainly gives too narrow an idea of the scope of the system to any one unacquainted with it. Rhythmical "gymnastics," in the natural meaning of the word, is a part of the Dalcroze training, and a not unimportant part, but it is only one application of a much wider principle; and accordingly, where the term occurs in the following pages, it must be understood simply as denoting a particular mode of physical drill. But for the principle itself and the total method embodying it, another name is needed, and the term "Eurhythmics" has been here coined for the purpose. The originality of the Dalcroze method, the fact that it is a discovery, gives it a right to a name of its own: it is because it is in a sense also the rediscovery of an old secret that a name has been chosen of such plain reference and derivation. Plato, in the words quoted above, has said that the whole of a man's life stands in need of a right rhythm: and it is natural to see some kinship between this Platonic attitude and the claim of Dalcroze that his discovery is not a mere refinement of dancing, nor an improved method of music-teaching, but a principle that must have effect upon every part of life.

    This edition includes all of the original illustrations.

Volume 1 has an introduction and three sections focusing on the background and history of addiction, the distal and proximal influences on addiction, and the expressions of addiction; the latter includes chapter discussions about the universal and unique consequences of addiction. Volume 2 also has three major sections. These sections examine the many aspects associated with recovery from addiction, the prevention of addiction, and other essential issues commonly associated with addiction, such as technology, driving under the influence, and homelessness. There is also a Foreword in Volume 1 and an Epilogue in Volume 2 that provide insight and perspective about the addiction syndrome and the place of this handbook within the development of a science of addiction. Editor-in-chief Howard J. Shaffer asked contributors to consider their areas of interest with respect to the addiction syndrome model. In addition, to advance the conceptual framework that guides addiction research and treatment, contributors were asked to provide evidence to support or refute the addiction syndrome model. Dr. Shaffer hopes this approach will stimulate an enthusiastic dialogue that can advance the field by revising and improving the etiological models that provide the guiding wisdom about addiction and its causes and consequences.

  • Astrology: Get to Know Your Partner Better

    Each sign is written as a bio of person's Personality, Love, Money, and Family. I've been studying astrology since I was nine. My astrology has been proven to be 90 percent accurate. Aries are very talkative, they like to be where the action and adventure is. Aries wants to be the center of attention, too often they speak without thinking, whatever pops into their head is usually what they say. A Taurus is very set into their ways, once they have made up their minds about something they rarely change it. Geminis; one of the twin's personality is very dominant, and the other one is very easy going. Cancers are very warm hearted, and have a deep sympathy for others. Leos; when a lion is speaking they want to be the center of attention. Virgos can be very blunt, without hesitation to say what's on their mind. They have a way with their charm that others don't realize. Libras give others the impression, of a warm and charming personality they tend to be easygoing and can adjust to many different kinds of people. Scorpios are very cool and calm, more on the quiet side, it takes a lot to get on their bad side. Sagittarius are very frank and honest, they don't see any need to beat around the bush. Capricorns tend to be kind hearted, and thoughtful though they can sometimes be very fussy over things and want things their way. Aquarius can be talkative at times, they love to have a good conversation once you get them started, they can talk for hours. Pisces is a dual sign; the top fish is generous, sensitive with a deep appreciation for others, on the other hand the bottom fish is a stubborn temperamental fish with the I-know-it-all attitude.

  • Leadership is a Covenant: Leading People and Living Life More Effectively

    In Leadership is a Covenant Len Moisan brings new meaning to the concept of leadership by demonstrating how the principles and power of covenants, properly applied, can increase engagement, improve productivity, create prosperity and transform people and organizations for the better. We used to do business in America on a handshake because we trusted one another. Now we look with more frequency to sue people if they offend us or to control them with regulation and the law. As a result of this rise in legalism, trust in our society has declined. Whether it's in a family, a church or a multinational corporation, leadership in any kind of organization has become much more challenging. The author argues that one key reason for the increased challenges leaders face is the fact that we have lost an understanding of the concept, the language and the principles of covenant. Combining his experience as a consultant to businesses and nonprofit organizations and his research as an academician, Len Moisan makes the case that the essence of leadership is found in the dynamics of the relationships between leaders and followers. The book is divided in two sections that include Defining Leadership as a Covenant and Understanding and Leading by the Principles of Covenant. In the conclusion Dr. Moisan also provides a brief overview of a four step process for initiating and maintaining covenants. He argues that covenants have always been central to the strength of America. In fact, Alexis de Tocqueville observed in the 1830's what he called "covenants" that existed between the American people. Through a combination of dynamic and engaging interviews, the latest research on productivity, trust and profitability, and plenty of illustrations and examples; the author shows how at its core leadership is a covenant and that restoring covenants by applying the covenant principles, is the key to leading effectively in our personal lives, our homes and the organizations we serve. It giv

  • Mindful Sport Performance Enhancement: Mental Training for Athletes and Coaches

    All athletes and coaches know that peak performance requires more than just physical exertion. There is a psychological component as well, which can be expressed in attributes such as awareness, focus, emotion regulation, and motivation.

    For many years, systematic mental training was ignored in athletics. Thankfully, this is starting to change. This comprehensive resource on the history, theory, and practice of mindfulness in sport offers a fresh, exciting approach to performance enhancement for athletes and coaches at all levels, from amateur to professional. Rooted in the traditions of mindfulness-based stress reduction and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, Kaufman, Glass, and Pineau present mindful sport performance enhancement (MSPE), an empirically supported, six-session program that can be adapted for athletes or even performers in other high-pressure domains. Each MSPE session includes educational, experiential, and discussion components, as well as recommendations for home practice. There is special emphasis on incorporating mindfulness into workouts, practices, and competitions, as well as everyday life.

    The book includes handy scripts for mindfulness teachers, athletes, and coaches, and handouts summarizing each session that are also available for download from the APA website.

  • Supervision Essentials for the Practice of Competency-based Supervision

    This concise text describes a trans-theoretical approach that has been the gold standard in supervisory practice for nearly two decades. The authors show readers how to identify, assess, and track the knowledge, specific skills, broad attitudes, and human values that undergird a series of professional competencies spanning the breadth of clinical practice.

  • It Shined: The Saga of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils

    As the turbulent 60's began to fade into the calmer 70's, a coterie of young singers, songwriters, musicians, artists, and poets began to congregate, musically on the stage of The New Bijou Theater - the Springfield, Missouri nightclub that would become the loose-knit group's home. What started as an informal weekly gathering, quickly morphed into a formal band. Dubbed the Family Tree, they became a favorite of the local counter-culture, as well as a continuation of the tradition-rich, Springfield music scene - which, until recently, included the Ozark Jubilee (the nation's first televised country music show). Though unprofitable at the time, they stuck to their guns and their original songs. When a rough tape of an early Bijou gig caught the ear of music mogul, John Hammond, it culminated in a 26-song studio demo, which caught the ear of A&M executive, David Anderle. The group signed with the label, changed their name to its present moniker, and whisked off to London to record their debut album under the tutelage of Glyn Johns. The album contained "If You Want to Get to Heaven." Their subsequent album, recorded in rural Missouri, contained "Jackie Blue." Both songs remain staples on 'classic rock' radio. By the early 80's, the Ozark Mountain Daredevils found themselves right where the Family Tree had stood a decade before - in Springfield with no record deal. They did, though, find themselves with legions of loyal fans around the world. Amidst personnel changes, personal turmoils and a cornucopia of tales from the rock-n-roll highway, the next twenty years were spent 'on the road'. Though continuing to write, they could garner little interest among the rapidly modernizing music industry - a situation many long-haired, long-named hippie bands of the 70's find themselves in. Their music, though, lives in the hearts of their fans.

  • Advent and Christmas Meditations

    Christmas, with its sparkling decorations and gaily wrapped gifts, is the most celebrated holyday in many people's lives. Christmas is even a holiday so brightly prominent is it in our culture. Christmas shines like the Bethlehem Star into the dark shadows of our workaday world. Christmas is the peaceful pause in the noisy hustle and bustle of our daily work and relationships.Yet for many the grueling preoccupation in the preparations for Christmas is with the jingle-belled material things: shopping, decorations, gifts, exotic foods, visits, entertainment, etc.Sometimes many forget the fundamental spiritual meaning of Christmas. These daily meditations are geared to help you to become more exuberantly aware of the primary meaning of Christmas, namely, the love of God so boundless that God gave us his only divine son as a human babe, Jesus, to live among us, teach us with his stories, lay down his life for us and rise again on the third day. These daily meditations were written in the hope that you will be able to probe, with dynamic and contagious faith, the gospel stories to increase and deepen your spiritual development during the Advent and Christmas seasons.

  • Blossom Plays Possum: Because She's Shy

    Ask me my name?
    Want me to play?
    Call on me in class?
    I say nothing and hope no one will see me. I call that playing possum. It's my way of being shy.


    Blossom wants to speak up in class, and she wants to spend time with friends at lunch and at recess. She also loves to jam on her flute, make glitter glam headbands, and recite poetry... but you might not know that, because Blossom is also very shy!

    She wants to participate in school and with friends, but whenever she tries, she freezes up and plays possum instead. And playing possum is not the best way to make friends!

    With some gentle encouragement from her peers and her music teacher, Blossom learns that taking risks usually isn't as bad as she fears, and can have a big payoff. She might still be shy, but she's getting better at putting herself out there and having fun.

    Includes a Note to Parents and Other Caregivers by Julia Martin Burch, PhD, with more information on the cognitive-behavioral strategies Blossom uses to cope with shyness and ways to encourage your own shy child.

  • BEING, The Radiant Force Within: The Autobiography of My Soul

    AWAKENING AWARENESSDuring the course of preparing for publication, many personal interviews were made in a test of the present stage of awareness of an individual's sense of self, of who the "I am" really is. These interviews were generally spontaneous, conducted in a natural setting during a conversation in which I would take advantage of a pause and quietly say:"I am going to ask you three questions which will change your awareness of who you really are. You will simply give me one-word answers, and by doing so you will begin to think of yourself in a new way.First: Are you more than a body?Yes, I am more than a body"Second: Since you are more than a body, what is the "more?"What is the "more" than my body? My Soul.Third: Since your soul is "more" than your body--think now--are you a body with a soul, or are you a soul in a body? Which has domain, your body or your soul?Which is the real you?(Longer pause)Most replied by saying "I am a soul in a body."**********"With" or "in" is determinative, and the one you choose, like a fork in the road, will control your path ahead.If one chooses "with," it is an admission that Darwin is right; we are Homo sapiens, intelligent animals descended from the ape. As Donald Trump said, "Life is what you do when you are waiting to die."If one chooses "in," then one believes we cannot die. We are Human Beings, ascended from within, on the earth but not of it, destined to graduate when our bodies die and we return to the universe from whence we came as Souls in the form of radiant energy.The key to the fork in the road is awareness, for we become as we think. Who we think we are is that which we become. Descended from the ape or ascended from within, there is magic in the awakening of awareness of who is in control during our time of life on earth, and the personal awareness of who "I am" ignites the presence of enthusiasm within us--entheos: God within.***********BEING . . . is Nathan Shippee's autobiography of his Soul following his ou

    It is 1847, and Paris is edging closer to its next revolution, but something is also astir inside Mont Dragon in the Ardeche. This is a place of annual pilgrimage for a band of enigmatic nomads, and also a place of interest to the ambitious Bishop of Viviers. In spite of his distaste for travel, Auguste Dupin makes the long southward journey, in the hope that he might be able to help an old friend, the evolutionist Claude Guerande. Guerande believes that he has made discoveries in the caves of Mont Dragon that might cast new light on the origin of humankind, and of life itself. Over the years, however, not everyone who has gone into the caves has come out again, and not everyone who has come out has been unaltered... 1847 promises to be a critical year, more dangerous than any before it. And when the bizarre flameflower begins to bloom, everything changes! Another great tale in the Auguste Dupin series.

  • Discovery - A Memoir

    Discovery enters one child's homeland of hardship transformed by promise, where the obscure failed to mask a richly inspiring world of accomplishment. The power of that small world shaped this child's aspiration for knowledge beyond any presumed societal limitations. Vernon Smith, born in Wichita before the Great Depression amidst entrepreneurs, saw them defy that Depression, converting Kansas wheat fields into oil and aviation industries. Unemployment would force his family into temporary farm life, where he began public school in a rural one-room school house. The farm would be a crucible of learning that would generalize far beyond its constraining bounds. With nineteenth century blue-collar family roots in the railroad and petroleum industries, Smith swept past an unpromising academic high school record, graduating from Caltech, and then, devoid of any conscious vision of what might be accomplished; he switched from science to the study of economics at the University of Kansas and Harvard. Guided by an inner sense of 'knowing what to do next,' the young Purdue professor withstood the pressure of the economics profession to stick within its artificial boundaries. Unbeknownst or imagined to himself, Smith would become instrumental in launching economics into new space as an experimental science, overcoming the arch-conservative view that economics was inherently a non-experimental social science. His half-century of contributions were recognized in 2002 by the award of a Nobel Prize in economics. That capstone, however, is not the main message in this memoir. In Discovery you will learn about that intellectual journey, but mostly you will penetrate his personal voyage, learning about the inner workings of one mind, whether it's on horse back trips, making chili or probing the depths of human experience. Ultimately, learning "how things work" embraced spiritual as well as scientific values as both arise from unse

    This is a tale of a life few understand today: the human cost of Empire, where families were torn apart - a father seen once every four years - growing up in the Thirties, a time much talked and written about by those who never knew it; a strange Oxford; the war at its most savage against an enemy like no other.

You will discover after reading this book that these years have been worth recalling.

  • Last Guard Out: A Riveting Account by the Last Guard to Leave Alcatraz

    The Last Guard Out is the fascinating true story of one man's life as a guard behind the merciless concrete walls of Alcatraz. I was newly assigned to the infamous island penitentiary of Alcatraz. Reporting to Alcatraz required me to uproot my wife Cathy and young son Kenny from Colorado to California. As we approached San Francisco via of the Oakland Bay Bridge we got our first foreboding glance of Alcatraz Island with a dense circle of fog surrounding it. A strange sense of dread came over me. I looked at our young son asleep in the back seat, then turned to my wife next to me and I whispered "What The Hell Did We Do". After moving on to Alcatraz our thought on Island life quickly changed and we decided not to apply for a transfer out, which consequently left us there until the Island closed in March of 1963. Because of our newly born daughters foot problem they left us there until June of 1963 making me The Last Guard Out.

  • Webster's 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language

    To make Webster's monumental 1828 dictionary available at a more affordable price, this new edition has been carefully prepared in a proprietary compact format: All of the words, definitions, and examples have been preserved, but the explanations of word origins have been omitted to save space, as has Webster's lengthy technical introduction. Scripture references have been standardized in modern format, and many abbreviations have been spelled out for greater understanding. Also, for the first time since the book's original publication, the text has been newly designed and typeset; the clear, sturdy Charter typeface makes the text highly readable in spite of its small size. Noah Webster's 1828 American Dictionary of the English Language is a work of great importance for modern readers who care about traditional values. The founding documents of the United States of America are contemporary with this 1828 dictionary, as are many other important books and documents of that time. The 1828 dictionary defines the language of these materials in the context of their era and thus becomes a valuable reference tool to enhance understanding. In addition, Noah Webster based his work extensively on the King James Version of the Bible, so that not only the words but also the values of the early nineteenth century are reflected in the definitions. As Webster wrote, "In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed. . . . No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people." This new, compact edition is published with the same hope expressed by Webster himself: "I present it to my fellow citizens, not with frigid indifference, but with my ardent wishes for their improvement and their happiness; and for the continued increase of the wealth, the learning, the moral and religious elevation of character, and the glory of my country."

  • 20 Steps to A Freedom Walk

    "It's All about Saying Thanks" The attacks on New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. and a small farm town in rural Pennsylvania shook the American people. Would America survive? Could America survive? The people of Paramus, New Jersey had many relatives and friends who worked in or near the World Trade Center and none of them will ever forget those agonizing hours waiting to hear if their families were safe. Days later, the children of East Brook Middle School responded. They discovered the new American Hero . . . America's First Responders. They organized a community service project called Operation Goody Bag to say thanks to local Fire, Rescue, Ambulance and Police for keeping their families safe. They sent Goody Bags to the United States Armed Forces sacrificing time away from their families to keep us free. In December of 2006, OGB was accepted as a member of America Supports You, a nationwide organization of the Department of Defense comprised of home front groups that support the troops. That's where Joey Rizzolo, a 6th Grader at East Brook Middle School, read about the yearly America Supports You Freedom Walk. Joey wanted to do more to say thanks to those who serve and decided that having a Freedom Walk in Paramus was the way to go. Follow Joey as he turns his dream into a reality. Surely, the 20 Steps to a Freedom Walk will inspire you to organize a Freedom Walk in your town.

  • Presidential Portraits

    PRESIDENTIAL PORTRAITS, as the name suggests, is a book that displays bright and colorful verbal pictures of the forty-two men who have led our country, from George Washington to George W. Bush. Unlike many works about the presidents, this one is neither a large scholarly tome nor a complex study of presidential polices or historical themes arranged by more or less useful analytical categories. Philip Secor, an acclaimed author and historian, has provided here a useful comparative reference for the beginning student and, at the same time, a ?good read? for the history buff. Although there are no footnotes and no extensive bibliography, there are a few books suggested for further reading on each president. Each portrait seeks to answer four general questions: (1) What kind of a person was (is) he, in terms of appearance, temperament, personal habits and idiosyncrasies; (2) What was his childhood and early life like and what did he do before becoming president, in both his personal life and his career? (3) What did he accomplish as president? (4) What did he do after leaving office and what was the manner of his death? Throughout, special emphasis is placed on personal and social relationships.

  • 125 Years of the American Psychological Association

    This volume, first published as part of the American Psychological Association's centennial celebration in 1992 and updated today for the APA's 125th anniversary, demonstrates how the Association has evolved over the years in response to intellectual, cultural, political, economic, and other historical developments. Chapters describe the personalities and events that transformed the APA from a tiny organization of 26 members to one of the largest professional associations in the world. Key topics include the changing role of women in the APA, and the organization's considerable contributions to social change. From its origins in the late nineteenth century, through the two World Wars and a major reorganization, to the social and cultural turbulence of the 1960s and the economic uncertainties of the 1970s and 1980s, the APA's development has mirrored the growth of psychology as a discipline in the United States.

    This special 125th anniversary edition describes the unique challenges and triumphs that have marked the APA's early years in the twenty-first century.
