Poetry. Native Australian Studies. Women's Studies. "Aboriginal women are the great gatherers of many things--food, of course, but also stories and inner strength. The women who raised me had vast reserves of inner strength, and to pass that on was a powerful act of activism. In particular, they taught me to listen to the past as it speaks in the present. This work is about listening to the past and walking back over it, step after step, to see what you missed the first time. It speaks to what has been left out of official records, recordings and documents--the emotions, the other sides of paper--and what is not said. These poems engage with the ongoing, interventionist nation-state and the crime scene that is Australia in the lives of Aboriginal people. In contrast to state archives, museums, libraries, universities and collection agencies--and their methods of 'recording the lives' of Aboriginal people--my work explores the body where memories are stored as an archive; anchored and etched. Writing is an act of remembering a dismembered past. The title WALK BACK OVER alludes to a bridge across the Murrumbidgee River where I grew up but, more symbolically, mirrors the need to revisit our past. Much was made of the 2000 Reconciliation Walk across Sydney Harbour Bridge--many settler Australians walked across this and other bridges, and I am not cynical about that--but there are many other spans in Australia that must be walked: not just once, walked back over."--Jeanine Leane

Dog Whistles Walk Backs And Washington Handshakes

To the amusement of the pundits and the regret of the electorate, our modern political jargon has become even more brazenly two-faced and obfuscatory than ever. Where once we had Muckrakers, now we have Bed-Wetters. Where Blue Dogs once slept peaceably in the sun, Attack Dogs now roam the land. During election season--a near constant these days--the coded rhetoric of candidates and their spin doctors, and the deliberately meaningless but toxic semiotics of the wing nuts and backbenchers, reach near-Orwellian levels of self-satisfaction, vitriol, and deceit. The average NPR or talk radio listener, MSNBC or Fox News viewer, or blameless New York Times or Wall Street Journal reader is likely to be perplexed, nonplussed, and lulled into a state of apathetic resignation and civic somnolence by the rapid-fire incomprehensibility of political pronouncement and commentary--which is, frankly, putting us exactly where the pundits want us. Dog Whistles, Walk-Backs, and Washington Handshakes is a tonic and a corrective. It is a reference and field guide to the language of politics by two veteran observers that not only defines terms and phrases but also explains their history and etymology, describes who uses them against whom, and why, and reveals the most telling, infamous, amusing, and shocking examples of their recent use. It is a handbook of lexicography for the Wonkette and This Town generation, a sleeker, more modern Safire's Political Dictionary, and a concise, pointed, bipartisan guide to the lies, obfuscations, and helical constructions of modern American political language, as practiced by real-life versions of the characters on House of Cards.

This tenth volume in the series addresses an important topic of research, de sign, and policy in the environment and behavior field. Public places and spaces include a sweeping array of settings, including urban streets, plazas and squares, malls, parks, and other locales, and natural settings such as aquatic environments, national parks and forests, and wilderness areas. The impor tance of public settings is highlighted by difficult questions of access, control, and management; unique needs and problems of different users (including women, the handicapped, and various ethnic groups); and the dramatic re shaping of our public environments that has occurred and will continue to occur in the foreseeable future. The wide-ranging scope of the topic of public places and spaces demands the attention of many disciplines and researchers, designers, managers, and policymakers. As in previous volumes in the series, the authors in the present volume come from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, research and design orientations, and affiliations. They have backgrounds in or are affiliated with such fields as architecture, geography, landscape architecture, natural re sources, psychology, sociology, and urban design. Many more disciplines ob viously contribute to our understanding and design of public places and spaces, so that the contributors to this volume reflect only a sample of the possibilities and present state of knowledge about public settings.

Not yet twenty, Gus and Call enlist as Texas Rangers under the command of Caleb Cobb, a capricious outlaw determined to seize Santa Fe from the Mexicans. The two young men experience their first great adventure in the barren, empty landscape of the great plains, in which arbitrary violence is the only law – whether from nature, or from those whose territory they must cross in order to reach New Mexico. Danger, sacrifice and fear test Gus and Call to the limits of endurance, as they seek the strength and courage to survive against almost insurmountable odds in the West of early nineteenth-century America.

Rita Miller, an experienced banker in the quaint town of Shallotte, North Carolina, is now employed by a "megabank" that acquired the community bank where she had spent her decade-long career. Resentful of corporate assimilation and suspicious of her new co-workers, Rita is thrust into the thankless position of budgeting for the bank office where she unwittingly uncovers an insidious pattern of crime that predates the merger and potentially involves old and new co-workers. As Rita and her best friends slowly piece the crime together, the fear of discovery turns deadly as the criminals desperately try to cover up and destroy evidence of their fraud. At the same time, a chance encounter with Ross Moore, the new bank's president, propels Rita into an intra-bank personal relationship she desires but has convinced herself is forbidden. As her perceptions of right and wrong, good and bad, and transparency and deception are challenged, Rita is forced to decide whether matters of the heart allow for forgiveness when the lines between them are blurred and trust is broken to protect the greater good. The story explores secrecy and confidentiality, honesty and forthrightness, and the resulting shades of gray that shape everyday decisions and interactions with friends, families and fellow employees.

This book is about the Paranormal experiences that myself, two of my cousins, and our best friend had when we were teenagers. I had been exposed to a supernatural encounter when I was 5 years old, I was playing on the back porch at my Grandparents house, at a desk that my Grandmother had set up for her to use. I was sitting at the desk while my Mother helped my Grandmother in the kitchen, the back porch was just off from the kitchen, so they both could see me from the kitchen. I was writing in a notebook and I heard a pen or pencil roll off of the desk, I get out of the chair to see if I could find it, and as soon as I stoop to look under the desk, I clearly hear a mans voice say "Shoot". I was terrified and ran through the kitchen screaming. But that was nothing like what I would encounter as I got older. This book is based on our experiences with paranormal phenomenon. There is one incidence that is in the book that I would like to talk about here. All of the experiences that we had were frightening, but this one stands out in my mind. This particular incident scared me really bad, because I had never seen anything like it in my life. Nicholas was home alone and decided to go to the store to get cigarettes, he locked the door before he left and when he returned, he walked into a frightening scene. He unlocked the front door and walked in the living room to find all of the pictures on the wall turning in circles. There were at least thirty pictures in all, and every single one spinning on the wall. He ran to my cousins house, and told us what he had returned home to find. We decide to walk back over to his house. When we got there, Gwen opened the front door and screamed. We run up behind her to look into the house and what I saw sent chills down my spine. As Nicholas had said, every picture was spinning on the wall. We walk into the living room and Gabriella, Gwens sister, walks over to the pictures and looks behind them and they are spinning in mid air, theyre not hanging on anything. When she tells us, we ran out of the house. Just remembering this gives me chills.

A surprise attack on the nation’s military bases and power stations sends the Armed Forces scrambling. When impoverished, disheartened, poorly educated, but well-armed aboriginal young people find a modern revolutionary leader, they rally with a battle cry of "Take Back the Land!" Theirs is a fight to right the wrongs inflicted on them by "the white settlers." They know they are too small to take on the entire country, but they don’t need to. Over a few tension-filled days as the battles rages over abundant energy resources, the frantic prime minister can only watch as the insurrection paralyzes the country. But when energy-dependent Americans discover the southward flow of Canadian hydroelectricity, oil, and natural gas is halted, they do not remain passive. Although none of the country’s leaders see it coming, the shattering consequences unfold with the same plausible harmony by which quiet aboriginal protests decades ago became the eerie premonitions of today’s stand-offs and "days of action."

A walking guide to the Silverdale and Arnside Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), at the top of Morecambe Bay in Cumbria and Lancashire, overlooking the Lake District. 21 day walks are described between Carnforth, Holme, Milnthorpe and Arnside, climbing wooded hills and limestone escarpments with views of the Lake District fells. Walks are between 2 and 8 miles in length and visit nature reserves including Leighton Moss RSPB reserve, follow the canal and explore the shoreline. Summits include Wharton Crag, Arnside Knott, Farleton Knott and Hutton Roof Crags. The combinations of rocky coastal scenery, woodland and rough limestone hills either side of the M6 in north Lancashire, make this a paradise for walkers. Routes can easily be linked into longer walks and the extensive network of well walked paths enables walks to be shortened or lengthened at will. The area is renowned for its flora and fauna, its historic buildings and interesting geological features.
