This exuberant story follows a Chinese American family as they prepare for the Lunar New Year. Each member of the family lends a hand as they sweep out the dust of the old year, hang decorations, and make dumplings. Then it’s time to put on new clothes and celebrate with family and friends. There will be fireworks and lion dancers, shining lanterns, and a great, long dragon parade to help bring in the Lunar New Year. And the dragon parade in our book is extra long–on a surprise fold-out page at the end of the story. Grace Lin’s artwork is a bright and gloriously patterned celebration in itself! And her story is tailor-made for reading aloud.

Daggers Unsheathed: The Political Assassination of Glen Clark is the story of the Glen Clark era in British Columbia politics. From the 1995 announcement of his NDP leadership aspirations to the day in 2002 when he was acquitted of criminal charges in a BC court, Glen Clark was the dominant personality in West Coast politics. Clark's style and politics as premier of BC ensured that everyone had a reaction to him. Opinions varied widely and emotions ran high, not only among opposition politicos, but also within his own party, the media, the public, and even, some say, the RCMP. Drawing on a wide range of interviews, access to the former premier's family, and an extensive review of media files, Judi Tyabji Wilson describes the forces that contributed to Clark's demise, including his own role in the process. Tyabji Wilson's political and media experience, combined with her first-hand knowledge of many of the players and the games they play, makes her the ideal person to tell this story. Daggers Unsheathed: The Political Assassination of Glen Clark digs deep and gives no quarter as it takes the reader on a journey through the backrooms of politics and behind the curtains of power. Entertaining and honest, it offers a clear and candid perspective on BC politics.

This is a book about my life. There are stories about my childhood all the way up until early 2014. I have stage 4 cancer and also live with Bi Polar disorder. There are some graphic stories about things that have happened to me involving my Bi Polar disorder. I do not talk about all my family members or friends I just use the ones that are directly involved in my tales. (Some content is graphic and this should not be read by children.) All names have been changed as well. It is a short read but should be interesting.

This is one of a thousand stories dealing with the transition from innocence to a maturity stage where unforeseen events forced this change to occur sooner and faster than expected. The death of a father forcing an older brother to become the strong figure in a family, the absence of both parents often causes the same circumstances. In my case it was a sudden change in government brought by a revolution and followed by family separation in exile at an early age. I have often heard so many similar stories from older Jewish friends about the fragmentation of families during the Nazi era. The name changes to save a life, the denials of ethnicity and religion in order to survive. The quest for Gods given freedom does not know ethnic background or frontiers. My story is no different from those who have risked everything to live in a free society. We often associate these stories with Nazi Germany, Communist China or the old Soviet Union. Its hard to conceive, yet a reality that the same circumstances could happen just ninety miles from our shores in a country that was always ( and I believe still is) traditionally and culturally strongly linked to the United States. I write this book with dual purpose. One is to pour my heart out and leave a written legacy on my experience to my children. As much as a father tries to explain verbally, time tends to erase the memories. The second purpose is to serve as an inspiration to all those who today seek freedom. Every human being should have freedom to worship, freedom to speak their minds and express their opinions, freedom to travel, freedom to prosper in abundance and decide who their elected leaders will be through free elections. These freedoms still do no exist in Cuba today. In spite of some recent cosmetic changes and Castros mummified state, his younger brother is still preaching the same lies designed to create an illusion of change. After more than fifty years of totalitarian government, the Castro brothers along with their puppets in Venezuela and Panama still rule like old dinosaurs from a bygone era.

When young Gary Robertson moved from the old tenements to an almost brand new housing scheme in the early 1970s, it was the start of a very big adventure. In the skeems, you could roam from morning to night and get up to all sorts - provided you obeyed the rules of the street (and your parents if they saw you). As a training ground for life it was second to none but there was plenty to learn. There was money to be made on the lemonade bottles and the berries each summer - provided you knew the tricks of the trade. There were games to be played, from Backie Hopping to Scubby Queen, gangs to be avoided and football, music and lassies to get to grips with - or not - at the Clubbie. Irreverent and funny, Skeem Life is set against a backdrop of the tough housing schemes of 1970s Dundee. It was Britain in the time of the three-day week and the OPEC oil crisis but it was a journey full of excitement, adventure and youthful dreams.

Blood and Wine is complied from a collection of fictional writings, free verse and autobiographical material I wrote and published in several books over the years. I selected segments I thought were essential to the general focus of my book to hone prose and target free verse to signify the creative process within which my book strives. I began the book with a poetic challenge-Intruders, do not enter the mind / of the unborn child in the womb of thought-thereby promoting prose against the originality of free verse.

Bringing It To The Table

Only a farmer could delve so deeply into the origins of food, and only a writer of Wendell Berry’s caliber could convey it with such conviction and eloquence. A progenitor of the slow food movement, Wendell Berry reminds us all to take the time to understand the basics of what we ingest. “Eating is an agriculture act,” he writes. Indeed, we are all players in the food economy. For the last five decades, Berry has embodied mindful eating through his land practices and his writing. In recognition of that influence, Michael Pollan here offers an introduction to this wonderful collection that is essential reading for anyone who cares about what they eat. Drawn from over thirty years of work, this collection joins bestsellers The Omnivore's Dilemma, by Pollan, and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, by Barbara Kingsolver, as essential reading for anyone who cares about what they eat. The essays address such concerns as: How does organic measure up against locally grown? What are the differences between small and large farms, and how does that affect what you put on your dinner table? What can you do to support sustainable agriculture?

Angel Customers Demon Customers

One of the oldest myths in business is that every customer is a valuable customer. Even in the age of high-tech data collection, many businesses don't realize that some of their customers are deeply unprofitable, and that simply doing business with them is costing them money. In many places, it's typical that the top 20 percent of customers are generating almost all the profit while the bottom 20 percent are actually destroying value. Managers are missing tremendous opportunities if they are not aware which of their customers are truly profitable and which are not. According to Larry Selden and Geoff Colvin, there is a way to fix this problem: manage your business not as a collection of products and services but as a customer portfolio. Selden and Colvin show readers how to analyze customer data to understand how you can get the most out of your most critical customer segments. The authors reveal how some companies (such as Best Buy and Fidelity Investments) have already moved in this direction, and what customer-centric strategies are likely to become widespread in the coming years. For corporate leaders, middle managers, or small business owners, this book offers a breakthrough plan to delight their best customers and drive shareowner value. From the Hardcover edition.

Dawn strolled over to another wall where a large, framed, penciled drawing presented a grinning skull, a transparent round pipe with smoke curling from it, and a horned skull with hollow eyes that appeared to be laughing at her, like the phantom of her nightmare. Devoid of color, gray and white swirls of smoke depicted illusionary demons-there were demons in the smoke. The artwork, a little on the dark side, seemed almost symbolic. She remembered a time, not so very long ago, when Preston City was the safest place to live. Then drugs became more than a troubling issue. Van Morrison and Bob Kaley invaded their town and death walked stealthily through the halls of their school, out onto their quiet streets. They had arrived in town at about the same time last year, a simple coincidence? Van Morrison, a drug pusher on the south side, Bob Kaley, a respected teacher in her school. It seemed unlikely the two would have any connection. Still, she had her suspicions. Dawn wondered if it was her imagination working overtime linking a social studies teacher to disreputable drug pusher.

The annual harvesting of cereal crops was one of the most important economic tasks in the Roman Empire. Not only was it urgent and critical for the survival of state and society, it mobilized huge numbers of men and women every year from across the whole face of the Mediterranean. In Bringing in the Sheaves, Brent D. Shaw investigates the ways in which human labour interacted with the instruments of harvesting, what part the workers and their tools had in the whole economy, and how the work itself was organized. Both collective and individual aspects of the story are investigated, centred on the life-story of a single reaper whose work in the wheat fields of North Africa is documented in his funerary epitaph. The narrative then proceeds to an analysis of the ways in which this cyclical human behaviour formed and influenced modes of thinking about matters beyond the harvest. The work features an edition of the reaper inscription, and a commentary on it. It is also lavishly illustrated to demonstrate the important iconic and pictorial dimensions of the story.
