Truth Matters: Knowledge, Politics, Ethics, Religion

Why should we seek and tell the truth? Does anyone know what truth is? Many are skeptical about the relevance of truth. Truth Matters endeavours to show why truth is important in a world where the very idea of truth is contested. Putting philosophers in conversation with educators, literary scholars, physicists, political theorists, and theologians, Truth Matters ranges across both analytic and continental philosophy and draws on the ideas of thinkers such as Aquinas, Balthasar, Brandom, Davidson, Dooyeweerd, Gadamer, Habermas, Kierkegaard, Plantinga, Ricoeur, and Wolterstorff. Some essays attempt to provide a systematic account of truth, while others wrestle with the question of how truth is told and what it means to live truthfully. Contributors address debates between realists and anti-realists, explore issues surrounding relativism and constructivism in education and the social sciences, examine the politics of truth telling and the ethics of authenticity, and consider various religious perspectives on truth. Most scholars agree that truth is propositional, being expressed in statements that are subject to proof or disproof. This book goes a step farther: yes, propositional truth is important, but truth is more than propositional. To recognize how it is more than propositional is crucial for understanding why truth truly matters. Contributors include Doug Blomberg (ICS), Allyson Carr (ICS), Jeffrey Dudiak (King?s University College), Olaf Ellefson (York University), Gerrit Glas (VU University Amsterdam), Gill K. Goulding (Regis College), Jay Gupta (Mills College), Clarence Joldersma (Calvin College), Matthew J. Klaassen (ICS), John Jung Park (Duke University), Pamela J.

Early Birdy Gets the Worm: A Picturereading Book for Young Children

Waking up early one morning, baby robin Early Birdy watches Mother Birdy catch a worm. Inspired, Early Birdy wants to catch one too. But catching a worm isn't as easy as it looks. Join Early Birdy on an exciting and funny adventure set in a beautiful springtime forest environment created by illustrator Bill Bolton. PictureReading Books: The stories in this series are told in pictures, not children aged 3 to 5 (and older struggling readers) can 'read' the pictures to enjoy and understand the wordless narrative. Parents and teachers don't need to read these stories to their children, but they can create a dialogue by asking questions, spread-by-spread, with the result that your pre-schooler will soon be narrating what he or she sees in the pictures and telling you the story! These books also have wonderful potential in bilingual families, because they can be 'read' in any language.

The Silver Lining: Webster's Timeline History, 1801 - 2007

Webster's bibliographic and event-based timelines are comprehensive in scope, covering virtually all topics, geographic locations and people. They do so from a linguistic point of view, and in the case of this book, the focus is on "The Silver Lining," including when used in literature (e.g. all authors that might have The Silver Lining in their name). As such, this book represents the largest compilation of timeline events associated with The Silver Lining when it is used in proper noun form. Webster's timelines cover bibliographic citations, patented inventions, as well as non-conventional and alternative meanings which capture ambiguities in usage. These furthermore cover all parts of speech (possessive, institutional usage, geographic usage) and contexts, including pop culture, the arts, social sciences (linguistics, history, geography, economics, sociology, political science), business, computer science, literature, law, medicine, psychology, mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology and other physical sciences. This "data dump" results in a comprehensive set of entries for a bibliographic and/or event-based timeline on the proper name The Silver Lining, since editorial decisions to include or exclude events is purely a linguistic process. The resulting entries are used under license or with permission, used under "fair use" conditions, used in agreement with the original authors, or are in the public domain.  

The Nephilim Agenda

Ancient mysteries of the Bible are unfolding with startling clarity. One such mystery is the Genesis Six account of giants on the earth. These giants - the Nephilim - were the vile offspring of earthly women and divine beings bent on the deception and destruction of God's holy people. — History is about to repeat itself. Jesus said, "as is was in the days of Noah, so it will also be in the days of the Son of Man" (Luke 17:26). The Nephilim are coming again, positioning themselves to rule the world in degrees of wickedness such as man has ever known. Are you ready?

Jolene Brackey has a vision. A vision that will soon look beyond the challenges of Alzheimer's disease and focus more of our energy on creating moments of joy. When a person has short-term memory loss, his life is made up of moments. But if you think about it, our memory is made up of moments, too. We are not able to create a perfectly wonderful day with someone who has dementia, but it is absolutely attainable to create a perfectly wonderful moment: a moment that puts a smile on their face, a twinkle in their eye, or triggers a memory. Five minutes later, they won't remember what you did or said, but the feeling you left them with will linger.  

Holy War and Human Bondage: Tales of Christian-Muslim Slavery in the Early-Modern Mediterranean (Praeger Series on the Early Modern World)

Holy War and Human Bondage: Tales of Christian-Muslim Slavery in the Early-Modern Mediterranean tells a story unfamiliar to most modern readers?how this pervasive servitude involved, connected, and divided those on both sides of the Mediterranean. The work explores how men and women, Christians and Muslims, Jews and sub-Saharan Africans experienced their capture and bondage, while comparing what they went through with what black Africans endured in the Americas.Drawing heavily on archival sources not previously available in English, Holy War and Human Bondage teems with personal and highly felt stories of Muslims and Christians who personally fell into captivity, slavery or who struggled to free relatives and co-religionists in bondage.In these pages, readers will discover how much race slavery and faith slavery once resembled one other and how much they overlapped in the Early-Modern mind. Each produced its share of personal suffering and social devastation?yet the whims of history have made the one virtually synonymous with human bondage while confining the other to almost complete oblivion.

Small Board-and-Care Homes: Residential Care in Transition

Small board-and-care homes have existed informally for many years as alternative settings for long-term care. Typical residents have been discharged from another facility with some physical or mental impairment. Most are women over the age of 75 with minimal financial or social resources. While these homes are often viewed negatively--as warehouses for the ill and underprivileged--they are now growing in numbers and receiving increased attention for their ability to provide a loving environment and customized care at a modest cost.Small Board-and-Care Homes is the first book to examine these settings from the perspectives of their operators and residents. Based on ten years of research in Baltimore and Cleveland, it offers a comprehensive look at an increasingly important option for residential care: who lives in them, who operates them, what services are delivered, what are the economics of their operation, and how do residents and operators perceive their situations. The authors also examine issues such as gender and employment, since the operators are usually women who receive little pay and no benefits for providing a vital service in their own homes--outside the formal systems of health care and human services. The final chapter looks at policy implications: should these homes follow the institutional, medical model of nursing homes and strict regulation, or are they more analogous to the less-regulated, personalized child care or home care?  

Give Me Love (Give Me Series) (Volume 1)

Evie Jamieson, a former wild child, is not only a headstrong, smart-mouthed trouble magnet, she is also a lead singer with a plan. That plan involves uprooting her band, including her two best friends guitarist Henry and band manager Mac, to Sydney to kick off their dreams of hitting the big time. Jared Valentine is the older brother of Evie's best friend Mac and also the man determined to make Evie his. They strike up a long distance friendship which suits Evie because she's determined to avoid the distraction of love, not only because it doesn't fit in with her plan, but because twice in the past it has left her for dead. Moving to Sydney, however, has put her directly in Jared's path and he has decided it's the perfect opportunity to make his play. Unfortunately Jared, co-owner in a business that 'consults' in dangerous hostage and kidnapping situations, makes an enemy who's determined to enact revenge. When his enemy puts Evie in his sights, Jared not only has a fight on his hands to make her his own, but also to keep her alive. Is accepting the love he's so desperate to give worth the risk to both her heart, and her life? *Please Note: Kate McCarthy is an Australian author and Australian English spelling and slang have been used in this book.*

Provoking the Gospel: Methods to Embody Biblical Storytelling Through Drama

As explained in the preface, the title Provoking the Gospel has multiple meanings.Swanson and his team “poke and provoke” biblical stories, having learned from experience that the richest biblical stories will poke and provoke right back at us. The ensemble does not just tell a biblical story: they tell and retell it, again and again, first from one perspective and then from another, and then from a half-dozen other perspectives, until the audience member’s head is spinning from the myriad possibilities that the performance has demonstrated to be plausible. Whereas an academician might argue abstractly for the possibility of multiple readings of a text, this ensemble enacts and embodies multiple readings, thereby making them absolutely inescapable.  

San Francisco Street Art

San Francisco's vibrant street art scene exists in areas off the city's well-worn tourist paths. The alleyways and hidden side streets of the Haight, the Tenderloin, and especially the Mission district's Clarion Alley offer unexpected treats to visitors lucky enough to stumble upon them. For more than five years, photographer Steve Rotman has obsessively documented this scene as it evolved on walls, sidewalks, billboards, fences, doors, and other public spaces. Culled from thousands of images, the result is a collection of work that attests to the artists' personal and stylistic diversity, from Mars1's robotic depictions of alternate universes which reflect the local counterculture spirit, to Neck Face's whimsically ghoulish creatures that serve as a testament to entrepreneurial hipsterdom, to Bigfoot's friendly green primates inspired by the area's rich graffiti culture. San Francisco's charm as an international destination also causes foreign artists to contribute to the street dialogue-Brazilian duo Os Gemeos, Londoner D*Face and German painter Dome have all graced the city's walls with their unique points of view. An enterprising photographer, Rotman has forged relationships with many of these often-reclusive artists, allowing him access to some of the lesser-known corners of the street art world.

The Gloops and the Special Plant

"Where the Gloops live, there grows a very special plant. This plant has not always been understood. In fact, once upon a time, the Old Kings wanted the plant gone forever. Inside this little book is a BIG story about Molly, her family, and all of the Gloops who stood up for what they believed in, and won! The world of the Gloops is not so very different from ours... So, maybe by learning about them, we can learn about us too!" The Gloops and the Special Plant is a teaching tool for starting the conversation on what cannabis is, and what the end of it's prohibition means. It tells a parallel story to our own, while teaching about human rights and respect.

Simple Wealth, Inevitable Wealth

The first edition of Simple Wealth, Inevitable Wealth was published around Thanksgiving of 1999. Four months later, the stock market topped out. And the second-longest, second deepest bear market in a hundred years-exceeded only by the cataclysm of 1929-32-began. Simple Wealth, Invitable Wealth has experienced its baptism of fire. Its principles, far from being tarnished by the great bear market of the new millennium, have been validated by it. As I said five years ago on the last page of the first edition. But, using the principles in this book, I could face the bear market as an opportunist rather than as a victim, and keep buying quality managed investments at prices I may never see again.  

A Book of American Prose Humor

No Time To Think: The Menace of Media Speed and the 24-hour News Cycle

This book offers an eviscerating look at the state of journalism in the age of the 24-hour news cycle by a Pulitzer Prize-winning television critic and a veteran news correspondent."No Time To Think" focuses on the insidious and increasing portion of the news media that, due to the dangerously extreme speed at which it is produced, is only half thought out, half true and lazily repeated from anonymous sources interested in selling opinion and wild speculation as news. These news items can easily gain exposure today, assuming a life of their own while making a mockery of journalism and creating casualties of cool deliberation and thoughtful discourse. Much of it is picked up gratuitously and given resonance online or through CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other networks, which must, in this age of the 24-hour news cycle, 'feed the beast.' In dissecting this frantic news blur, "No Time to Think" breaks down a number of speed-driven blunders from the insider perspective of Charles Feldman, who spent 20 years as a CNN correspondent, as well as the outsider perspective of Howard Rosenberg, who covered the coverage for 25 years as TV critic for "The Los Angeles Times".This book demonstrates how today's media blitz scrambles the public's perspective in ways that potentially shape how we think, act and react as a global society. The end result affects not only the media and the public, but also the government leaders we trust to make carefully considered decisions on our behalf.The book features interviews ranging from former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw to internet doyenne Arianna Huffington, PBS stalwart Jim Lehrer, CNN chief Jonathan Klein and a host of former presidential press secretaries and other keen-eyed media watchers.  

The trade union woman (1915)

Excerpt from book: VII THE WOMAN ORGANIZER The problems that face the woman organizer are many and complex. They are the harder to handle, inasmuch as there is very little assistance to be had from any body of tradition on the subject among women workers. The movement for organization among women is still so inchoate. The woman organizer turns to the more experienced men leaders, and finds that often, even with the best will in the world, they cannot help her. The difficulties she meets with are, in detail, so different from theirs that she has to work out her own solutions for herself. It is indeed a blind alley in which she has so often to move. The workers are young and ignorant, therefore, by all odds, they require the protection of both legislation and organization. Again, the workers are young and ignorant, and therefore they have not learnt the necessity for such protection. Their wages are in most cases low, too low for decent self-support. But just because their wages are so inadequate for bare needs it is in many cases all the more difficult to induce them to deduct from such scanty pay the fifty cents a month which is the smallest sum upon which any organization can pay its way and produce tangible benefits for its members. Left to her own devices, the solution of her financial difficulties which the average girl finds is always to lessen her expenses so as to manage on the lesseningwage that is inevitable in all trades if not resisted. To find a cheaper room, to take one more girl into her room, to spend a few cents a day less for food—these are the near-hand economies that first present themselves to the girlish mind. This is on the economizing side. When it comes to trying to earn more, to work longer hours is surely the self-evident way of increasing the contents of the we...

Historical Atlas of Northeast Asia, 1590-2010: Korea, Manchuria, Mongolia, Eastern Siberia

Four hundred years ago, indigenous peoples occupied the vast region that today encompasses Korea, Manchuria, the Mongolian Plateau, and Eastern Siberia. Over time, these populations struggled to maintain autonomy as Russia, China, and Japan sought hegemony over the region. Especially from the turn of the twentieth century onward, indigenous peoples pursued self-determination in a number of ways, and new states, many of them now largely forgotten, rose and fell as great power imperialism, indigenous nationalism, and modern ideologies competed for dominance.This atlas tracks the political configuration of Northeast Asia in ten-year segments from 1590 to 1890, in five-year segments from 1890 to 1960, and in ten-year segments from 1960 to 2010, delineating the distinct history and importance of the region. The text follows the rise and fall of the Qing dynasty in China, founded by the semi-nomadic Manchus: the Russian colonization of Siberia: the growth of Japanese influence: the movements of peoples, armies, and borders: and political, social, and economic developments -- reflecting the turbulence of the land that was once the world's "cradle of conflict." Compiled from detailed research in English, Chinese, Japanese, French, Dutch, German, Mongolian, and Russian sources, the Historical Atlas of Northeast Asia incorporates information made public with the fall of the Soviet Union and includes fifty-five specially drawn maps, as well as twenty historical maps contrasting local and outsider perpectives. Four introductory maps survey the region's diverse topography, climate, vegetation, and ethnicity.

Excerpt from book: CHAPTER III He could not persuade himself that the invitations evoked enthusiasm, indeed two of them were declined at the beginning. Only Nina accepted at once. She wrote: "How on earth did you find Sweetbay again—is it still on the map? Yes, I will come—and with 'no encumbrances' —but I won't promise to be rural so long as all that. If I were you, I would arrange with the Stores for constant supplies. Can you depend on the cook?" Regina was obviously indignant at the exclusion of her husband. She replied that her cousin's remembrance of their childhood was "quite touching." This was underlined. "But though I fully understand that Toto's presence would spoil your romantic plan, I cannot pretend to forget that I am now a wife, Conrad." Conrad was perturbed. He drove to Regent's Park and showed the letter to Nina, and she said that her sister couldn't forget she was a wife, because she had married a remote relation of Lord Pol- pero's. "They have stayed at the 'Abbey,' my dear: at least she tells me they have as often as she condescends to dine with us—Regent's Park is 'so far away' from their poky little place in Mayfair! She can just call it 'Mayfair' without getting a remonstrance from the postal authorities. An 'Abbey' has been too much for her. Of course Polpero is a pauper, and the Abbey's a wreck, but I believe she slept with the family-tree over her bed. It's about the only tree of Polpero's that the woodman .has spared, but 'Gina feels Norman." Conrad was still perturbed. He hastened to appease Regina, and moderating his desires, implored "Toto" to spare her to him just for a week or two. "Toto" said promptly that "a couple of months at Sweetbay was exactly what she needed for her cough." So she was won, and there remained only Ted to conquer. As a young prof...

Once Upon a Dragon: Stranger Safety for Kids (and Dragons)

After a thump-bumping ride on a slide, a little girl and her dragon friend find themselves inside a fairy-tale book. The stories are familiar, and there's lots of silly fun as the Dragon is transformed into fairy-tale characters. But danger lurks in the form of strangers -- including the hungry wolf from Little Red Riding Hood and Snow White's evil stepmother. And it's up to the girl to keep an eye on the dragon, who walks alone through deep dark woods and takes treats from people he doesn't know. Little by little, the girl teaches her irrepressible friend to be careful about strangers. The winning combination of fairy-tale adventure and concrete safety information -- including the Dragon's Stranger Safety Rhyme and the checklist of rules at the end of the book -- provide the perfect starting point for discussions with children about stranger safety.

Fauna Family: An Adventure of the Durrell Family of Corfu

Fauna and Family, also known as The Garden of the Gods, is the third in Durrell's Corfu trilogy that begins with his beloved classic, My Family and Other Animals and continues with Birds, Beasts and Relatives. In his foreword to Fauna and Family, Durrell confessed that in the first two books, "I had left out a number of incidents and characters that I would have liked to have described, and I have attempted to repair this omission in this book . . . I hope that it might give the same pleasure to its readers as apparently its predecessors have done, as for me it portrays a very important part of my life . . . which is a truly happy and sunlit childhood."

Jonah and the Great Big Fish

'God told Jonah to obey, said, 'Go to Nineveh this day.' But, stubborn Jonah fled instead. Didn't do just what God said.' Jonah's disobedience landed him inside a big fish! And there he had time to think and pray. Children will feel the waves and hear the splash as Jonah sinks 'down and down and down' into the belly of the fish. This story serves as an excellent reminder of how important it is to listen to God.

Twice-crossed River: Prehistoric and Palaeoenvironmental Investigations at Barleycroft Farm/Over Cambridgeshire

This is the first volume charting the CAU?s on-going Barleycroft Farm/Over investigations, which now encompasses almost twenty years of fieldwork across both banks of the River Great Ouse at its junction with the Fen. Amongst the project?s main directives is the status of a major river in prehistory ? when a communication corridor and when a divide? Accordingly, a key component throughout has been the documentation of the lower Ouse?s complex palaeoenvironmental history, and a delta-like wet landscape dotted with mid-stream islands has been mapped. This book is specifically concerned with the length of The Over Narrows, whose naming alludes to an extraordinary series of mid-channel ?river race? ridges. With their excavation generating vast artefact sets and unique palaeo-economic data, these ridges saw intense settlement sequences, ranging from Mesolithic camps, Grooved Ware, Beaker and Collared Urn pit clusters (plus field plots) to Middle Bronze fieldsystems and their attendant settlements, a massive Late Bronze Age midden complex and, finally, an Iron Age shrine. The latter involved extensive human bone or body-part deposition and bird sacrifice. Four upstanding turf barrows and two accompanying waterlogged pond barrows feature among the main excavations reported here. With more than 40 cremations (including in situ pyres), the resultant detailing of Early Bronze Age mortuary practices and the insights into the period?s monument construction are ground-breaking. This is an important book, for the scale of The Narrows? excavations and palaeoenvironmental studies, its comprehensive dating programmes and, particularly, the innovative methodologies and analyses undertaken. Indeed, a commitment to experiment has lain at the project?s core.  

Real Corkers: Stories For Children

Reminiscent of Carl Sandburg's beloved children's poetry, these stories were ad-libbed by the author for his children and then written in a notebook for later refinement, which never came to pass: so that they retain the atmosphere of spontaneity and lame humor often encountered in the last half hour before bedtime, as in this example: I would say the highlight of the whole evening came during the Amateur Hour when three of the most common backyard vegetables from our own neighborhood sang a lovely trio of their own devising, which means they wrote the words and music, taught the song to the accompanist birds, and practiced the dance part to perfection. They had made beautiful matching costumes out of each other, as will be evident when you see the lyric to the song they sang: Lettuce, Turnip and Pea... Lettuce, Turnip and Pea...

Birth of a White Nation: The Invention of White People and Its Relevance Today

Birth of a White Nation is a fascinating new book on race in America that begins with an exploration of the moment in time when "white people," as a separate and distinct group of humanity, were invented through legislation and the enactment of laws. The book provides a thorough examination of the underlying reasons as well as the ways in which "white people" were created. It also explains how the creation of this distinction divided laborers and ultimately served the interests of the elite. The book goes on to examine how foundational law and policy in the U.S. were used to institutionalize the practice of "white people" holding positions of power. Finally, the book demonstrates how the social construction and legal enactment of "white people" has ultimately compromised the humanity of those so labeled. Jacqueline Battalora was born in Edinburg, Scotland and lived in Antwerp, Belgium for six years before her family relocated to Victoria, Texas. It was this experience of attending high school and middle school in Victoria that informed her understanding of race in America. While she is currently a lawyer and professor of sociology and criminal justice at Saint Xavier University, she is also a former Chicago Police officer. She holds a Ph.D. from Northwestern University and has been engaged in anti-racist training since the mid 1990s. Publisher's website:  

Knowledge Discovery in Proteomics (Chapman Hall/ Crc Mathematical Biology and Medicine)

Multi-modal representations, the lack of complete and consistent domain theories, rapid evolution of domain knowledge, high dimensionality, and large amounts of missing information - these are challenges inherent in modern proteomics. As our understanding of protein structure and function becomes ever more complicated, we have reached a point where the actual management of data is a major stumbling block to the interpretation of results from proteomic platforms, to knowledge discovery. Knowledge Discovery in Proteomics presents timely, authoritative discussions on some of the key issues in high-throughput proteomics, exploring examples that represent some of the major challenges of knowledge discovery in the field. The authors focus on five specific domains: ·Mass spectrometry-based protein analysis ·Protein-protein interaction network analysis ·Systematic high-throughput protein crystallization ·Systematic, integrated analysis of multiple data repositories ·Systems biology In each area, the authors describe the challenges created by the type of data produced and present potential solutions to the problem of data mining within the domain. They take a systems approach, covering individual data and integrating its computational aspects, from data preprocessing, storage, and access to analysis, visualization, and interpretation. With clear exposition, practical examples, and rich illustrations, this book presents an outstanding overview of this emerging field, and builds the background needed for the fruitful exchange of ideas between computational and biological scientists.

Exchange Rate Crises in Developing Countries: The Political Role of the Banking Sector (The International Political Economy of New Regionalisms)

According to many economists, the increasing mobility of capital across borders has made it more costly to peg exchange rates. This phenomenon has contributed to some of the more famous examples of exchange rate crises in recent times, such as the Mexican peso crisis in 1994 and the Asian financial crisis in 1997. Yet despite the increasing costs of pegging in today's accelerated financial markets, some developing countries try to maintain a peg for as long as they can. This work is the first to theorize the role of bankers as a domestic interest group involved in exchange rate policy. It adds to our understanding of how interest groups affect economic policy in developing countries and explains why some of the largest and fastest growing economies in the developing world were the most prone to crisis. The volume also refines our understanding of the 'hollowing-out thesis', the argument that increasing capital mobility is forcing states to abandon pegging.

A Book of Scientific Curiosities: Facts and Feats

From the length of the human genome to the number of stars in the sky, within these pages lies a fascinating collection of stories of mankind's speculation and discovery. When the great Isaac Newton looked back on his life's work, he felt he had been 'like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, while the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.' Given Newton's prickly personality, we may guess he would have been very upset had anyone else referred to his achievements in such terms. But the image he conjured up has captivated scientists ever since, and Cyril Aydon has cast his eye over the last 2000 years at the pebbles discovered by others. Here is his selection of nearly two hundred famous scientists, and their astonishing discoveries?from how the Babylonians taught us to measure time and the first use of the word dinosaur to Galileo's revelations about the cosmos and Maimen's development of the first laser?retold in entertaining and illuminating anecdotes, together with timeliness and a fascinating medley of facts and figures.

The Internet in Public Life (Institute for Philosophy Public Policy Studies)

The spread of new information and communications technologies during the past two decades has helped reshape civic associations, political communities, and global relations. In the midst of the information revolution, we find that the speed of this technology-driven change has outpaced our understanding of its social and ethical effects. The moral dimensions of this new technology and its effects on social bonds need to be questioned and scrutinized: Should the Internet be understood as a new form of public space and a source of public good? What are we to make of hackers? Does the Internet strengthen or weaken community? In The Internet in Public Life, essayists confront these and other important questions. This timely and necessary volume makes clear the need for a broader conversation about the effects of the Internet, and the questions raised by these seven essays highlight some of the most pressing issues at hand.

The Vehicule Poets—a group of poets who gathered in the mid-70s around the alternative gallery Vehicule Art Inc. and the printing operation Vehicule Press—was initially interested in gaining access to the means of production.

Inspired by the experimental environment of the gallery, the Vehicule Poets worked at the cutting edge of mixed media, poetry and video art. They took poetry out of the closet and put it on the buses, in the parks, on the dance floor and in the subway. The Vehicule Poets were an irreverent, adventurous lot, provoking both praise and vitriol from the public and the critics. Vehicule Days is an important record of literary and cultural history. The collection includes articles, essays and interviews, as well as a sampling from the works of the Vehicule Poets then and now.

The first-ever comprehensive history of the study of such igneous rocks, it traces the development of igneous petrology from ancient descriptions of volcanic eruptions to recent work incorporating insights from physical chemistry, isotope studies, and fluid dynamics.Intellectual developments in the field--from the application of scientific methods to the study of rocks to the discovery of critical data and the development of the field's major theories--are considered within their broader geographical, social, and technological contexts. Mind over Magma examines the spread of igneous petrology from western Europe to North America, South Africa, Japan, Australia, and much of the rest of the world. It considers the professionalization and Anglicization of the field, detailing changes in publication outlets, the role of women, and the influence of government funding. The book also highlights the significant role that technological developments--including the polarizing microscope, high-temperature quenching furnaces, and instrumental analysis--have played in the discovery of new data and development of revolutionary insights into the nature of igneous rocks.Both an engagingly told story and a major reference, Mind over Magma is the only available history of this important field. As such, it will be appreciated by petrologists, geochemists, and other geologists as well as by those interested in the history of science.

Flashman and the Dragon (Flashman Papers, Bk 8)

Celebrated Victorian bounder, cad, and lecher, Sir Harry Flashman, V.C., returns to play his (reluctant) part in the Taiping Rebellion in the eighth volume of the critically acclaimed Flashman Papers. Unfortunately in China in 1860 a lot of people were depending on Flashman: the English vicar's daughter with her cargo of opium: Lord Elgin: the Emperor's ravishing concubine: and Szu-Zhan, the female bandit colossus, as practised in the arts of love as in the art of war. They were not to know that behind his Victoria Cross, Flashman was a base coward and charlatan. They took him at face value, and he took them for all he could, while China seethed through the bloodiest civil war in history, and the British and French armies hacked their way to the heart of the Forbidden City.  

Childhood in the Works of Silvina Ocampo and Alejandra Pizarnik (Monografías A)

This volume explores the theme of childhood in the cuentista and poet Silvina Ocampo (1903-1993) and the poet Alejandra Pizarnik (1936-1972). It draws revealing comparisons between these key Argentine writers through their shared obsession with childhood, arguing that an understanding of their attitudes to childhood is fundamental to an appreciation of their work. Close reading of various Ocampo texts, including some for children, allows an exploration of her vision of childhood through nostalgia, adult-child power relationships, ageing and rejuvenation, and moments of initiation or imitation. Pizarnik is considered in relation to the myth of the child-poet, and her child personae are analysed through Breton's Surrealism, Cocteau and Paz: through her borrowings from Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Breton's Nadja: and through her obsession with madness, death, orphanhood, violation and transgression. In the final analysis, Ocampo's works achieve equilibrium between childhood and age, whereas Pizarnik's poetic crisis of exile from language parallels her deep sense of anxiety at being exiled from the world of childhood.FIONA MACKINTOSH is lecturer in Hispanic Studies at the University of Edinburgh.a href="5060sp.htm" target=_blank>Click here for a Spanish translation/A>

Basic GIS Coordinates, Second Edition

Coordinates are the foundation of GIS, cartography, and surveying, to name just a few fields. Computers have an astounding capacity for repetition and they possess a superior ability to handle the mathematics behind coordinate manipulation?but they are very bad at interpreting coordinates and coordinate systems. Basic GIS Coordinates, Second Edition clearly illustrates the basic principles of coordinate systems, covering ellipsoids, datums, and plane coordinates as they are used in GIS and GPS. Keeping in mind that it is ultimately incumbent on humans to ensure the correct use of coordinate systems, this book explains complex topics in a logical progression, presenting them in a way that is neither too complicated nor oversimplified. This new edition of a bestseller expands the material with updates on what has occurred in the field during the past five years, especially in the World Geodetic System and International Terrestrial Reference Frame. It also addresses the upcoming GNSS constellations and coordinate implications. Details how to build a coordinate system Addresses different methods of leveling, as well as measuring and modeling of height and gravity Explores two-coordinate (state-plane, UTM) systems Discusses initial points and other aspects of the rectangular system Covers the geoid and the concepts of elevation There are thousands of horizontal geodetic datums and Cartesian coordinate systems currently sanctioned by governments around the world to describe our planet electronically and on paper. Even if a computer has done nothing wrong, coordinate errors can often occur and lead to potentially disastrous miscalculations. This book is a valuable tool to help readers develop an understanding of how coordinate systems work?and how they sometimes don?t.  

Neotropical Tree Boa's: The Natural History of the Common Tree Boa

Treeboas (corallus) occur over much of the neotropical mainland and on a number of islands. They are often conspicuous members of neotropical snake fauna, and are known for their irascible temperaments and, in some species, their highly variable color patterns. The Corallus hortulanus complex of treeboas comprises four species: 1)C. cookii on St. Vincent: 2)C. grenadensis on the Grenada Bank: 3)C. hortulanus in Amazonia, the Guianas, and Brazil's Atlantic forest: and 4)C. ruschenbergerii from southern Central America and northern South America. This book summarizes what is currently known about the natural history of each of the four species, with strong emphasis on C. grenadensis. Topics covered include color and pattern: habitat and habitat use: activity: food and foraging: predators and defensive behavior: populations: ecological relationships with other boids: and the connection between treeboas and humans. This hardcover book includes 27 graphs, 24 tables, 9 maps, and 9 black and white photos, plus 32 color photographs.

Going Home Again

After two acclaimed historical novels, one of Canada's most celebrated young writers now goes contemporary with the vibrant story of a man taking stock of the shape his life has taken, and why, and what--as a husband, a father, a brother, and an uncle--his responsibilities truly are. — Charlie Bellerose leads a semi-nomadic existence, traveling widely to manage the language academies he has established in different countries.  After separating, somewhat amicably, from his wife, he moves from Madrid back to his native Canada to set up a new school, and for the first time in his life he forges a meaningful relationship with his brother, who's going through a vicious divorce.  Charlie manages to make a fresh start in Toronto but longs for his twelve-year-old daughter, whom he sees only via Skype and the occasional overseas visit.  After a chance encounter with a college girlfriend, he works through a series of memories--including a particularly painful one they share--as he reflects on how he ended up where he is.  But  two tragic events (one long past, the other very much in the present) finally force him to reevaluate his priorities and his relationships with everyone around him.

Gay: Webster's Timeline History, 1936 - 1989

Webster's bibliographic and event-based timelines are comprehensive in scope, covering virtually all topics, geographic locations and people. They do so from a linguistic point of view, and in the case of this book, the focus is on "Gay," including when used in literature (e.g. all authors that might have Gay in their name). As such, this book represents the largest compilation of timeline events associated with Gay when it is used in proper noun form. Webster's timelines cover bibliographic citations, patented inventions, as well as non-conventional and alternative meanings which capture ambiguities in usage. These furthermore cover all parts of speech (possessive, institutional usage, geographic usage) and contexts, including pop culture, the arts, social sciences (linguistics, history, geography, economics, sociology, political science), business, computer science, literature, law, medicine, psychology, mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology and other physical sciences. This "data dump" results in a comprehensive set of entries for a bibliographic and/or event-based timeline on the proper name Gay, since editorial decisions to include or exclude events is purely a linguistic process. The resulting entries are used under license or with permission, used under "fair use" conditions, used in agreement with the original authors, or are in the public domain.  

Woodrow: Apostle of Freedom

This is the story of a man of integrity, intellect, and faith. James Woodrow, uncle of Woodrow Wilson, was a competent scientist and an ordained Presbyterian minister. He became a professor at a Southern seminary in 1860, two years after Darwin's first public exposition on evolution. Dr. Woodrow's personal philosophy reconciled natural science and the Bible creation account. He understood freedom of inquiry to be wholly compatible with Christian belief. However, a sustained anti-evolution campaign finally drove him from his endowed chair in 1888. The book describes Woodrow's character and his life, from immigrant boy to college president. It also shows sincere people facing deep philosophical conflicts within their community. This is timeless issue, for irreconcilable differences of opinion threaten any free subculture. Contents include many quotations from Woodrow, a bibliography, an index, and reviews by nine contemporary readers.

Fishing with Blood

The poet explains the origin of the poetry books unusual title: "A sure way to catch catfish and other bottom-feeders is to squeeze a ball of partially dried cow's blood around a hook. The blood dissolves slowly, spreading its tendrils of odor into the surrounding water. It's like the tight wad of blood relations out of which I keep flinging myself and my words, both to lure whatever is out there and to assure myself of how tightly I'm hooked to the center."
