Both clubs will be looking to advance against out of area opponents, with Hernando going on the road and Nature Coast hosting.
We take a closer look at both of the matchups on tap for Friday night. This time around, however, the Leopards will take their act on the road and head north to take on the Baker County Wildcats. The Leopards must lean on their defense and controlling the clock with their run game. Firstyear coach Rob Kazmier will need running backs Isreal Fields and David Hale Bronson to come up huge if Hernando has any chance of picking up the road victory.

Eastside, though, primarily likes to stay on the ground. Deion Jenkins leads the Rams with 1, yards rushing and Richardson has over yards himself. Nature Coast counters with one of the top rushing attacks in the state led by running back Michael Weston. Weston has rushed for 2, yards and scored 25 touchdowns so far.

We now take a look at the final Hernando Sun Top 5 Prep Football ranking heading into the postseason. Take the No. Win and the Sharks continue to own homefield advantage.
The consolation prize to that berth, however, is they must take the trip up to Baker County this time around and it will not be an easy task pulling off the upset on the road. Nature Coast made the same trip last year. The Eagles retain their spot in the rankings as the No. Though the Hornets missed out on the playoffs, the building blocks are there for a successful season. Quarterback Vaughn Sykora threw for over 1, yards and 21 touchdowns, setting a Hernando County record.

Instead, we're left to hunt the public Wildlife Management Areas, which while offering some great opportunities, they do see a lot of pressure and offer unique challenges. So, I decided to share here some pointers that can help you battle the crowds and skittish deer, and set you on the path to success. Public land hunters have a tendency to hunt within a few hundred yards of the roads or trails.
Putting in a little legwork can bring you into areas with a more relaxed population of deer. Utilize waders, canoes, or kayaks if you have to; they can get you in to spots that are often as good as some private lands. Scout early and often After you have worked hard to get to spots on public land, you should continue to do your scouting. Pay attention to the sign as you come and go from your stand and if you sit day in and day out watching deer travelling out of range.
Choose Your Days Public land is often best during the week as most hunters typically, for one reason or another, are restricted to hunting the weekends. If you can manage to hunt during the week you stand a much better chance of walking in on another hunter trying to hunt, or having them inadvertently do the same to you. Poor weather days are often a great time to hunt public land as well, not many of us are fond of hunting. By the time the game concluded, both outcomes went in favor of the Sharks. Penalties did mar a bunch of possessions for both sides, as NCT was flagged 12 times for 95 yards, while IMG had 6 for 35 yards.
On Sunday, Nov. There were moments of long vollies, killer spikes and incredible saves, the stadium was filled with cheers of encouragement and inspired reactions, however Lake Sumter took the Championship title. Defensively, I thought we did very well, but we just need to get ready for the playoffs. We just need to clean up the unnecessary penalties before this real test.
However, one false start penalty and two bobbled handoffs later, and the Sharks turned the ball over on downs. The first score came with left in the first quarter, when Weston took a handoff up the left side for an 8-yard touchdown. Not long after, Weston would score again, this time from 13 yards out with just under 11 minutes. The second half would start out quietly, with both teams being forced to punt their first possessions away. The extra point was missed, giving the Ascenders a little hope. And they responded in turn, taking the ensuing kickoff all the way to the Nature Coast One play later, IMG would finally hit paydirt, with Jack Codwell capitalizing on a Sharks blitz which was successfully picked up on.
At this point, Burnett decided he wanted to get in on the scoring, and he did so in a big way to essentially put the game out of reach. With just. The woods are empty and quiet and the noise of the rain and wind masks both your noise and scent, placing the odds just a bit more in your favor.
Pack a lunch Get to your stand well before daylight. As hunters filter in to get themselves situated, they can push deer your way. And late morning and early afternoon, as the other guys head back and forth at lunchtime, again, they can bump deer your direction. Above all, be diligent and smart, and you'll be able to use public land to your advantage. Ask fifteen year old Cody Krantz, who along with his father Donnie, enjoyed a black powder hunt just North of our county line at the Flying Eagle Preserve.

Jingdu was a military recruitment training exercise for naval forces in the s after the imperial Tang dynasty collapsed. This practice was adopted by the new northern-based Song empire. Throughout several centuries, this particular style of boat racing became a competitive sport in which the winners were promoted into the imperial navy.
The boats were decorated like dragons, which symbolized imperial authority; as a result, other decorations such as birds, tigers, and other animals and designs were no longer being used and the competition took on the title of "dragon boat jingdu" or just "dragon boat competitions. According to dragonboathistory. Qu Yuan was exiled by the Emperor after advising against an alliance with the tyrannical power, Qin. The Chu Court was ultimately destroyed by the Qin.
The distraught Qu Yuan took his own life by carrying a large rock into Miluo Lake. As the local boatmen saw this, they took to their boats and set out to find Qu Yuan. They beat drums while they were rowing to scare off any fish, however his body was never found. This is said to have happened in B. The practice of racing to cross the river to find Qu Yuan became a tradition, for many, representing uncompromising principles, love of country. The Nature Coast Dragon Boat Racing of Citrus County club currently has over twenty members, ranging in age from the mid twenties to late seventies, and has been actively participating in races since The club has been going strong for ten years and for the current president and coach of the club, Andrew Davies, new members become inspired by many aspects of this sport.
She joined after her husband passed away two years ago and has been inspired by the camaraderie of the sport. Fay, from Hernando, is currently the Vice President for the club. Either about yourself, your teammate, the way the boat moves When you are training, everything else goes out of your mind. Practices can run up to 2 hours and can be demanding in preparation for upcoming races.
She has been involved with Dragon Boat Racing for ten years. Each row has two paddlers; one left and one right. At the back of the boat there is the steersperson, a highly trained crew member whose main position is to steer the boat and call paddling commands. The steersperson is also responsible for the overall safety of the crew. At the front of the boat is the drummer.
This crewmember. Keeping in rhythm The crew is broken into three sections, the front which is the first six paddlers, the engine room which is the middle eight paddlers and the back which is last six paddlers. Donna Egbert gets members motivated by conducting some energetic exercises before getting out on the boat. The crew is broken up into three groups, in front are pace setters who set the pace with their long paddling strokes.

Currently, in technology there is not a governing body. There is no degree required or exam that must be passed to enter into the profession. This may not always be the case, but it is the current setup. One of the ways they can do this is through certifications. A certification is usually awarded after passing some type of exam. There are many different types of certifications and they denote different skills.
There are certifications that show that you have a basic knowledge of a product s from a company. There are certifications that quantify general knowledge of an area. These product based certifications are usually sought when a company is purchasing a product and they want to bring on board people familiar with that product. These certifications can get you in the door, but generally have a short shelf life. If you have a certification in Bobsoft in a couple years everyone will want a certification in Bobsoft This makes sense, since knowledge of a legacy product may not be very helpful with using the latest version.
The general knowledge technology certification can cover vast areas of knowledge, so the exams can be more difficult to study for. These certifications can usually be kept with some sort of continuing education. Some of these require several documented years in the field before you are allowed to become fully certified. The certification that you should take depends on your plans.
If you pass a product based certification and then attend college, by the time you are finished, few employers may be interested in that certification. If you are about to enter the workforce, look at the certification requirements for the jobs you are interested in.
You should determine if the material looks interesting to you, since you will have to spend time internalizing the information to at least pass the test. You may recall that last Friday afternoon, some bad weather came through our area.

The Sharks, being the 1 seed, have home field advantage throughout regional play, and they will host the Gainesville-Eastside Rams.
The other team to advance from Hernando County, the 5 seed Hernando Leopards, will travel north to face off against the 4 seeded Baker County Wildcats. A win by the Sharks and Leopards would set up a rubber match on November 16th, but both teams need to win first for this outcome to happen.

New to this type of cycling, it soon became a self-challenge opportunity. Over the years this competitive sport became a professional career. Wicked Awesome Racing, a husband and wife business, formed in after Josh decided to stop competing and focus more on coaching and designing courses.
Wicked Awesome Racing held a two day weekend competition. So what exactly is cyclocross racing? Thornton describes it as a combination of mountain biking and road biking mixed into one. Course conditions can vary from one location to another and takes the racer to a new level by including a mixture of ground conditions as well as intense elevations throughout the course.
Augustine, bahiagrass, it grabs you and sucks the life out of you, so that ends up. In the Mens Masters, the course included high elevations, where racers would have to carry their bikes up steep inclines. Wicked Awesome Racing has provided cyclocross racing for the past fours years at the Quarry. Josh Thornton left with Layne Hampton. Hampton, photographer and friend helped set up the course.

Do not protect children by projecting your failures on them Children are amazing in how they can change rapidly and drastically.
An introverted, cautious preschooler can mature into an aggressive, extroverted adult. Human beings have genetic predisposition that can be altered through experience, role models and will power. Parents, other children and significant others such as relatives, teachers and coaches can inspire children to believe and do things they never dreamed they could accomplish. It does not give the child a message of encouragement to overcome the problem but rather it implies that the child does not have to work to try to improve since the parents succeeded without doing anything to overcome their weaknesses.
It probably never occurred to the adult that they might have gone further in their own lives if they better developed their abilities and skills. Just because a significant person did not overcome a challenge, this should not enable the youngster to follow this lazy and self-defeating path. Besides, the child may not have the same difficulty as did the parent. For parents who desire to protect their child from pain and anxiety for not being on par with other children this is a shortsighted approach. All children have to overcome many difficulties.
The reality is, no child is perfect. Some have academic, social or physical difficulties. A student may find reading or math easy but usually not both in the early grades. In later grades a student can persevere and compensate in order to become an excellent student in most areas. Besides it takes initiative and effort to develop solutions and follow through.
As the saying goes: no pain, no gain. The primary issue is the child has to find a personal strategy to develop his own learning style to conquer his learning difficulties. Students have to determine what works best for them. Some may have to read the material several times, take notes, use flashcards, repeat the words and concepts to themselves. When they tackle the issue head-on independently there is greater opportunity for success. They have to find the means to compensate for their weaknesses.
These students learn they are in charge of their own future success and have to make necessary changes to reach their objectives. These are lessons of looking inside of themselves to arrive at answers when beginning to be an independent learner. This discourages a child who is seeking to become an independent learner.

W A3 A Fox Sports personality and former NFL player describes his life, including growing up in Compton, attending Columbia University, and making it to the NFL, and discusses controversial issues within the game of football.
Marcellus Wiley has never had a problem expressing his opinion, whether it was growing up in Compton with a football tucked under his arm, or going to college at Columbia University, where he learned to survive Advanced Calculus and self-important pseudo-intellectuals. Or making it to the NFL against all odds, where he put together a ten-year career of massive paydays, massive painkillers, and massive sacks of everyone from Steve Young to Peyton Manning.
Now, in Never Shut Up, Fox Sports' hottest rising persona doesn't hold back as he goes off on everything that's controversial with the game today, from concussions to political protests to inherent violence that's worse than the hood he grew up in. Not because he hates football, but because he wants to save it.
Marcellus has never held back, even when a lot of people wanted him to. Now, he's letting it all hang out--right there on each page. Way more than just another book about the latest NFL scandals, this warm, moving, and genuinely funny story of awkward transitions, family loyalty, fame, fortune, and failure will make you fall in love with Marcellus--and football--all over again. In Never Shut Up, Marcellus will take you on a truly unique journey from Crenshaw to Broadway to the Buffalo Bills and back again, sometimes making you laugh, sometimes making you cry, but always leaving you entertained.
G75 With more than one in every five people over the age of fourteen addicted, drug abuse has been called the most formidable health problem worldwide. If we are not victims ourselves, we all know someone struggling with the merciless compulsion to alter their experience by changing how their brain functions. Drawing on years of research--as well as personal experience as a recovered addict--researcher and professor Judy Grisel has reached a fundamental conclusion: for the addict, there will never be enough drugs.
The brain's capacity to learn and adapt is seemingly infinite, allowing it to counteract any regular disruption, including that caused by drugs. What begins as a normal state punctuated by periods of being high transforms over time into a state of desperate craving that is only temporarily subdued by a fix, explaining why addicts are unable to live either with or without their drug.
One by one, Grisel shows how different drugs act on the brain, the kind of experiential effects they generate, and the specific reasons why each is so hard to kick. Grisel's insights lead to a better understanding of the brain's critical contributions to addictive behavior, and will help inform a more rational, coherent, and compassionate response to the epidemic in our homes and communities"-- Provided by publisher. The People vs. Ferlinghetti by Ronald K. Collins; David M. Skover Call Number: KF F4 C65 K A smart, snappy, and comprehensive guide for the millions of adults who are thinking about going--or going back--to college and want to know how to do it right.
S6 L35 A neglected and obscured episode of the late Civil Rights movement, The Poor People's Campaign, designed by King in and carried out after his death, brought together impoverished Americans of all races to demand better wages, better jobs, better homes, and better education.
He believed that not only a fight for rights but the radical distribution of wealth had to be demanded through interracial protest. King and the Other America explores this overlooked campaign to not only understand King's commitment to social justice but to understand the long-term trajectory of the Civil Rights Movement. Digging into earlier 20th century arguments about economic inequality across America, which King drew on through his entire political and religious life, Sylvie Laurent argues that the Poor People's Campaign was the logical culmination of King's influences and ideas and the lasting impact he had on young activists and the public.
Fifty years later, growing inequality and grinding poverty in the United States have spurred new efforts to rejuvenate the campaign. This book is essential to understanding today's movement through King's radical, intellectual thought and his struggle for genuine equality for all"--Provided by publisher. Hurst Call Number: F J1 H9 Referred to as Ax Handle Saturday, [this book] chronicles the racial and political climate of Jacksonville, Florida in the late fifties, the events leading up to that infamous day, and the aftermath.
F56 Includes keys to navigating each stage of professional development--from self-assessment and job search to survival in a new position and career advancement"-- Provided by publisher. J66 Complex conversations around race, class, and gender that have been happening behind the closed doors of academia for decades are now becoming part of the wider cultural vernacular--one pithy tweet at a time. These online platforms have given those outside the traditional university setting an opportunity to engage with and advance these conversations--and in doing so have created new energy for intersectional movements around the world.
As Jones reveals, some of the best-loved devices of our shared social media language are a result of Black women's innovations, from well-known movement-building hashtags BlackLivesMatter, SayHerName, and BlackGirlMagic to the now ubiquitous use of threaded tweets as a marketing and storytelling tool. For some, these online dialogues provide an introduction to the work of Black feminist icons like Angela Davis, Barbara Smith, bell hooks, and the women of the Combahee River Collective. For others, this discourse provides a platform for continuing their feminist activism and scholarship in a new interactive way.
Hard-hitting, intelligent, incisive, yet bursting with humor and pop-culture savvy, Reclaiming Our Space is a survey of Black feminism's past, present, and future, and places Black women front and center in a new chapter of resistance and political engagement"-- Provided by publisher. Why Should We Obey the Law? K56 C54 Worried about what a super conservative majority on the Supreme Court means for the future of civil liberties?
From gun control to reproductive health, a conservative court will reshape the lives of all Americans for decades to come. The time to develop and defend a progressive vision of the U. Constitution that protects the rights of all people is now. University of California Berkeley Dean and respected legal scholar Erwin Chemerinsky expertly exposes how conservatives are using the Constitution to advance their own agenda that favors business over consumers and employees, and government power over individual rights.
But exposure is not enough. Progressives have spent too much of the last forty-five years trying to preserve the legacy of the Warren Court's most important rulings and reacting to the Republican-dominated Supreme Courts by criticizing their erosion of rights--but have not yet developed a progressive vision for the Constitution itself.
Yet, if we just look to the promise of the Preamble--liberty and justice for all--and take seriously its vision, a progressive reading of the Constitution can lead us forward as we continue our fight ensuring democratic rule, effective government, justice, liberty, and equality. This book is a broad-ranging survey that explores and celebrates humankind's ongoing fascination with animals.
Since our very first moments on Earth, we have been compelled to make images of the curious beasts around us--whether as sources of food, danger, wonder, power, scientific significance or companionship. This carefully curated selection of images, chosen by an international panel of experts, delves into our shared past to tell the story of animal life. From the first cave paintings, extraordinary medieval bestiaries and exquisite scientific illustration, to iconic paintings, contemporary artworks and the incredible technological advancements that will shape our futures together, the huge range of works reflects the beauty and variety of animals themselves--including butterflies, hummingbirds, bats, frogs, tigers, dogs, jellyfish, spiders and elephants.
Arranged in a curated and thought-provoking sequence, this compilation includes iconic works by some of the great names in zoology, such as Conrad Gesner, Charles Darwin and John James Audubon, as well as celebrated artists and photographers, indigenous cultures and lesser-known figures who have made important contributions to the study and representation of animals throughout history. In Building Reuse: Sustainability, Preservation, and the Value of Design, Kathryn Rogers Merlino makes an impassioned case that truly sustainable design requires reusing and reimagining existing buildings.
The construction and operation of buildings is responsible for 41 percent of all primary energy use and 48 percent of all carbon emissions. The impact of the demolition and removal of an older building can greatly diminish the advantages of adding green technologies to new construction. Reusing existing buildings can be challenging to accomplish, but changing the way we think about environmentally conscious architecture has the potential to significantly reduce carbon emissions. Additionally, Merlino calls for a more expansive view of historic preservation that goes beyond keeping only the most distinctive structures and requiring that they remain fundamentally unchanged to embracing the creative reuse of even unremarkable buildings.
In support of these points, Building Reuse includes a compelling range of case studies-from an eighteen-story office building to a private home-all located in the Pacific Northwest, a region with a long history of sustainable design and urban growth policies that have made reuse projects feasible. Don't Hide the Madness by William S. U75 Z Is America Safe? J67 This second edition provides the knowledge and skills needed to understand terrorist strategies, which, in turn, allow each of us to contribute to disrupting the terrorists' intended goals through education and preparation. A25 G33 From their cold-water lofts, where they worked, drank, fought, and loved, these pioneers burst open the door to the art world for themselves and countless others to come.
Gutsy and indomitable, Lee Krasner was a hell-raising leader among artists long before she became part of the modern art world's first celebrity couple by marrying Jackson Pollock. Elaine de Kooning, whose brilliant mind and peerless charm made her the emotional center of the New York School, used her work and words to build a bridge between the avant-garde and a public that scorned abstract art as a hoax.
Grace Hartigan fearlessly abandoned life as a New Jersey housewife and mother to achieve stardom as one of the boldest painters of her generation. Joan Mitchell, whose notoriously tough exterior shielded a vulnerable artist within, escaped a privileged but emotionally damaging Chicago childhood to translate her fierce vision into magnificent canvases. And Helen Frankenthaler, the beautiful daughter of a prominent New York family, chose the difficult path of the creative life. Her gamble paid off: At twenty-three she created a work so original it launched a new school of painting.
These women changed American art and society, tearing up the prevailing social code and replacing it with a doctrine of liberation. In Ninth Street Women, acclaimed author Mary Gabriel tells a remarkable and inspiring story of the power of art and artists in shaping not just postwar America but the future. D7 M Drone Nation provides historical context for the rise and acceptance of drone warfare by the United States and examines likely impacts of drone use.
This gradual and important change signals a major departure from the traditional embrace of international law, military ethics, and domestic privacy. H2 W He was one of key leaders in the American Revolution, a chief architect of America's constitutional order of self-government, and the key figure in Washington's administration creating the institutions that governed America. Williams expertly weaves together biography with historical events to place Hamilton as one of the most important founding fathers.

There's even advice on how not to get high but still reap all the amazing health benefits. The Assault on Labor by Sandra L. Albrecht Call Number: HE A4 A73 Mina sees memes as the street art of the social web.
She shows readers how they operate to reinforce, amplify, and shape today's politics, and are becoming fundamentally intertwined with how we find and affirm one another, direct attention to human rights and social justice issues, build narratives, and make culture. In parts of the world where public dissent is downright dangerous, memes can belie contentious political opinions that would incur drastic consequences if expressed outright. S76 When world-renowned physicist Paul Steinhardt began his career in the s, scientists thought they had identified all the possible types of matter.
The issue had been settled science for centuries. But when Steinhardt pursued a wild fantasy he first imagined as a curious teenager, it led to a radical new theory, predicting an astonishing form of matter that broke all the established rules. The breakthrough would launch him on a thirty-five-year quest to prove the substance's existence in the natural world.
Steinhardt and his stellar team of researchers encounter international smugglers, corrupt scientists, secret diaries, fraudulent traders, political intrigue, and Russian security agents. Their search culminates in a daring expedition to one of the most inhospitable regions on Earth, pursuing tiny fragments of a meteorite forged at the birth of the solar system. Steinhardt and his team chart a new direction in science. They not only change our ideas about the fundamentals of matter but also reveal new truths about the processes that shaped our solar system.
The underlying science is deceptively simple, unexpectedly beautiful, and nothing short of revolutionary. Steinhardt's firsthand account is a scientific thriller of the first order. B36 Genesis by Edward O. Wilson Call Number: QL In [this book], Edward O. Wilson, examining evolutionary history further back than he has ever done before, delivers a revelatory account of the deep origins of society.
Asserting that religious creeds and philosophical questions can be reduced to purely genetic and evolutionary components, and that the human body and mind have a physical base obedient to the laws of physics and chemistry, Wilson argues that the only way for us to fully understand human behavior is to appreciate the long, complicated evolutionary histories of nonhuman species.
Of these, Wilson demonstrates that at least seventeen--among them the naked African mole rat and sponge-dwelling shrimp--have developed advanced societies based on similar levels of altruism and cooperation found among humans. Just as Darwin, in his Descent of Man, proposed humanity's origins through the study of apes and human behavior, Wilson here synthesizes the most updated research in evolutionary science to offer a pithy yet path-breaking work of evolutionary theory. In Genesis, Wilson eloquently braids twenty-first-century scientific research with the lyrical biological and humanistic observations for which he is known and admired.
Antisemitism by Deborah E. Lipstadt Call Number: DS L When newsreels depicting the depredations of the Holocaust were shown in movie theaters to a horrified American public immediately after World War II, it was believed that the antisemitism that was part of the fabric of American culture in the s and s was finally going to be laid to rest.
In the ensuing decades, Gregory Peck received an Academy Award for playing a journalist who passed as a Jew to blow the lid off genteel Jew hatred, clauses restricting where Jews could live were declared illegal, the KKK was pretty much litigated out of existence, and Joe Lieberman came within five electoral votes of becoming America's first Jewish vice president.
And then the unthinkable began to happen. Over the last decade, there has been a noticeable uptick in antisemitic rhetoric and incidents by left-wing groups targeting Jewish students and Jewish organizations on American college campuses. Jews in countries throughout Europe have been attacked by terrorists.
And the re-emergence of the white nationalist movement in America, complete with Nazi slogans and imagery, has brought to mind the fascist displays of the s. Where is all this hatred coming from? Is there any significant difference between left-wing and right-wing antisemitism? What role has the anti-Zionist movement played? And what can be done to combat this latest manifestation of an ancient hatred?
In a series of letters to an imagined college student and imagined colleague, both of whom are perplexed by this resurgence, Deborah Lipstadt gives us her own superbly reasoned, brilliantly argued, and sure-to-be-controversial responses to these troubling questions"-- Provided by publisher. A76 There are myriad competing theories, from the idea that aging is a simple wear and tear process, like the rusting of a car, to the belief that aging and death are genetically programmed and controlled. In fact, there is no clearly defined limit to life, and no single, predictable program playing itself out: different things are happening within and between tissues, and each system or organ accumulates damage at its own pace, according to the kind of insults imposed on it by daily living.
Sometime before , the number of people over sixty-five worldwide will, for the first time, be greater than the number of year olds; and by there are likely to be 2. Sue Armstrong tells the story of society's quest to understand aging through the eyes of the scientists themselves, as well as through the "ordinary" people who exemplify the mysteries of ageing--from those who suffer from the premature aging condition, Hutchinson-Gilford syndrome, to people still running marathons in their 80s.

Brown, White, Black by Nishta J. Mehra Call Number: HQ M44 Essays describe how the author's experiences as an Indian American, the wife of a white Christian woman, and the mother of an adopted black son have been challenged by rigid cultural family norms. D74 We all write, all the time: books, blogs, emails. Lots and lots of emails. And we all want to write better. Benjamin Dreyer is here to help.
As Random House's copy chief, Dreyer has upheld the standards of the legendary publisher for more than two decades. He is beloved by authors and editors alike--not to mention his followers on social media--for deconstructing the English language with playful erudition. Now he distills everything he has learned from the myriad books he has copyedited and overseen into a useful guide not just for writers but for everyone who wants to put their best prose foot forward.
As authoritative as it is amusing, Dreyer's English offers lessons on punctuation, from the underloved semicolon to the enigmatic en dash; the rules and nonrules of grammar, including why it's OK to begin a sentence with 'And' gr 'But' and to confidently split an infinitive; and why it's best to avoid the doldrums of the Wan Intensifiers and Throat Clearers, including 'very,' 'rather,' 'of course,' and the dreaded 'actually. That Albert Woodfox survived was, in itself, a feat of extraordinary endurance against the violence and deprivation he faced daily. That he was able to emerge from his odyssey within America's prison and judicial systems with his humanity and sense of hope for the future intact is a triumph of the human spirit, and makes his book a clarion call to reform the inhumanity of solitary confinement in the United States and around the world.
Arrested often as a teenager in New Orleans, Albert was behind bars in his early twenties when he was inspired to join the Black Panther Party because of its social commitment and code of living. He was serving a year sentence in Angola prison in Louisiana for armed robbery when on April 17, , a white guard was killed. Albert and another member of the Panthers were immediately accused of the crime and put in solitary confinement by the warden. Without a shred of actual evidence against them, their trial was a sham of justice that gave them life sentences in solitary.
Decades passed before Albert gained a lawyer of consequence; even so, sixteen more years and multiple appeals were needed before he was finally released in February Remarkably self-aware that anger or bitterness would have destroyed him in solitary confinement, sustained by the shared solidarity of two fellow Panthers, Albert turned his anger into activism and resistance. The Angola 3, as they became known, resolved never to be broken by the grinding inhumanity and corruption that effectively held them for decades as political prisoners.
Albert survived to give us Solitary, a chronicle of rare power and humanity that proves the better spirits of our nature can thrive against any odds. F52 C The world of 5G, the next generation of telecommunication technology, will be as different from what came before as the world after the advent of electricity. The massive amounts of data we'll be able to stream through fiber-optic connections will enable a degree of virtual presence that will radically transform health care, education, urban administration and services, agriculture, retail sales, and offices.
Yet all of those transformations will pale in comparison to the innovations that we can't even imagine today. In a fascinating account combining legal expertise with compelling on-the-ground reporting, Susan Crawford reveals how the giant corporations that control cable and internet access in the United States use their tremendous lobbying power to tilt the playing field against competition, holding back the infrastructure improvements necessary for the country to move forward.
And she shows how a few cities and towns are fighting monopoly power to bring the next technological revolution to their communities. I46 And we are also familiar with the idea that the United States is an "empire," exercising power around the world. But what about the actual territories--the islands, atolls, and archipelagos--this country has governed and inhabited? In crackling, fast-paced prose, he reveals forgotten episodes that cast American history in a new light.
We travel to the Guano Islands, where prospectors collected one of the nineteenth century's most valuable commodities, and the Philippines, site of the most destructive event on U. In Puerto Rico, Immerwahr shows how U. Instead, it put innovations in electronics, transportation, and culture to use, devising a new sort of influence that did not require the control of colonies. Rich with absorbing vignettes, full of surprises, and driven by an original conception of what empire and globalization mean today, How to Hide an Empire is a major and compulsively readable work of history.
S8 O33 Odette Sansom decides to follow in her war hero father's footsteps by becoming an SOE agent to aid Britain and her beloved homeland, France. She leaves behind her children, her friends, and her life. After five failed landing attempts--including a plane crash--she finally arrives in occupied France to begin her mission. It is here that she meets her commanding officer, Captain Peter Churchill. As they complete mission after mission, their forged bond of trust gives way to love. All the while, they are hunted by Germany's top spy-catcher, the cunning and relentless Hugo Bleicher.
Bleicher finally succeeds in capturing them and they are sent to Paris's Fresnes Prison, and then to concentration camps. In captivity, Peter and Odette are starved, beaten, and tortured, but never give up the whereabouts of their colleagues, their hope, or their love for each other. In Code Name: Lise, international bestselling author Larry Loftis seamlessly weaves together the touching romance with a harrowing cat-and-mouse chase reminiscent of Catch Me If You Can. Yet [this book] is more than a love story and riveting thriller--it's a portrait of courage, resilience, and patriotism by two of World War II's most fearless, most decorated operatives, and is sure to excite fans of [spy fiction].
R A3 Former editor of The Guardian newspaper discusses the shifts in the news landscape in recent years and what those shifts might mean for the future of democracy. Women Warriors by Pamela D. Toler Call Number: UB T65 From Vikings and African queens to cross-dressing military doctors and WWII Russian fighter pilots, these are the stories of women for whom battle was not a metaphor. But women, it turns out, have always gone to war. In this fascinating and lively world history, Pamela Toler not only introduces us to women who took up arms, she also shows why they did it and what happened when they stepped out of their traditional female roles to take on other identities.
By considering the ways in which their presence has been erased from history, Toler reveals that women have always fought--not in spite of being women but because they are women"-- Provided by publisher. Talk to creative problem-solvers and they will often tell you, the key to their success is asking a different question. Take Debbie Sterling, the social entrepreneur who created GoldieBlox.
The idea came when a friend complained about too few women in engineering and Sterling wondered aloud: "why are all the great building toys made for boys? Often, the moment they are voiced, they have the paradoxical effect of being utterly surprising yet instantly obvious. For innovation and leadership guru Hal Gregersen, the power of questions has always been clear--but it took some years for the follow-on question to hit him: If so much depends on fresh questions, shouldn't we know more about how to arrive at them?
That sent him on a research quest ultimately including over two hundred interviews with creative thinkers. Questions Are the Answer delivers the insights Gregersen gained about the conditions that give rise to catalytic questions--and breakthrough insights--and how anyone can create them"-- Provided by publisher. Have you ever hit the big blue button to activate automatic doors? Have you ever used an ergonomic kitchen tool? Have you ever used curb cuts to roll a stroller across an intersection? If you have, then you've benefited from accessible design - design for people with physical, sensory, and cognitive disabilities.
These ubiquitous touchstones of modern life were once anything but. Disability advocates fought tirelessly to ensure that the needs of people with disabilities became a standard part of public design thinking. That fight took many forms worldwide, but in the United States it became a civil rights issue; activists used design to make an argument about the place of people with disabilities in public life.
In the aftermath of World War II, with injured veterans returning home and the polio epidemic reaching the Oval Office, the needs of people with disabilities came forcibly into the public eye as they never had before. The U. This progression wasn't straightforward or easy. Early legislation and design efforts were often haphazard or poorly implemented, with decidedly mixed results. Political resistance to accommodating the needs of people with disabilities was strong; so, too, was resistance among architectural and industrial designers, for whom accessible design wasn't "real" design.
D66 Looking at the environmental impact of so much garbage, Dondero explores not just how we got here and where we're headed, but ways in which we might be able to curb the tide. From what you do and don't eat; what and how your products are packaged; the rampant production of clothes; the space and waste in which you work and live; what you breathe, eat, and drink; the tools you use to work and play; the energy overproduced and ill-used for a pleasant lifestyle; the waste you generate; and how humans are beginning to clutter the cosmos -- all these and more are profiled in the Throwaway Nation, as well as how to prohibit and mitigate the flow of our garbage and to use it productively"-- Provided by publisher.
Ecosystems require balance to survive, and when that balance is compromised, disaster can befall the whole system. To keep a balance in our global ecosystem, we need to use resources efficiently, equitably, and sustainably. In both nature and economics, we observe that when a healthy distribution of resources is achieved, systems can not only function but flourish.
Recycling brings a balance to our system by managing resources in a loop. When done well, it benefits communities and the environment. Individuals are a key part of connecting this loop because we provide a supply of materials and a demand for new recycled products. But many of us don't know what happens after those items leave our homes. We're confused by inconsistent rules of what we can and can't recycle. Our confusion has huge consequences and is a reason why our recycling is stuck. Throughout Reduce, Reuse, Reimagine, Beth Porter provides answers to clear up that confusion, and shares great resources about recycling, explaining the complexity, guiding individual action, and contextualizing its history.
This book reveals how we arrived at this state of dysfunction, and what steps we need to employ to be an active participant in strengthening our recycling system. Nature knows how to recycle itself, decomposing waste back into the soil to continue the circle of growth. We should follow its lead. B28 Hemp and the Global Economy by Nadra O. Hashim Call Number: HD A2 H37 K45 Plea negotiation is also the fast track to criminal conviction, tough punishment, and mass incarceration. From the perspective of public policy, plea negotiation perpetuates a harm based, retribution focused system of crime and punishment.
Because of the failures of public health, the justice system has become a dumping ground for hundreds of thousands of mentally ill, substance addicted and abusing, and neurocognitively impaired offenders. And because of a tough on crime mentality and lack of information and options, the justice system routinely prosecutes and punishes these offenders. The evidence is quite clear that punishment does nothing to improve these circumstances and often exacerbates them.
The result, as one would predict, is extraordinarily high rates of reoffending, propelling the revolving door of the justice system. Critical to this effort is redefining roles, responsibilities and the culture of criminal justice by prosecutors, judges and defense counsel accepting responsibility for reducing recidivism and embracing problem solving as a primary decision making strategy.
A1 W24 This book examines the history of racial segregation in America and many of the heroic battles that were waged against the system. From the s to the s court challenges were won and laws were enacted that killed Jim Crow. However, despite considerable advances, substantial barriers to racial equality persist"-- Provided by publisher. G46 Science fiction asks questions to propose other ways of living; it asks what if, and that question is the basis for alternative narratives of ourselves and the world we are a part of. What if humans could terraform planets?
What if we could create human-nonhuman hybrids? What if artificial intelligence gains consciousness? What if we could realize kinship with other species through heightened empathy or traumatic experiences? What if we imagine a world without oil? The texts analyzed in this book ask these questions and others, exploring how humans and nonhumans are connected; how nonhuman biologies can offer diverse ways to think about human sex, gender, and sexual orientation; and how interpretive strategies can subvert the messages of older films and written texts.
Commodifying Cannabis by Bradley J. Borougerdi Call Number: HV C3 B67 N4 E75 The story of racial hierarchy in the American film industry The OscarsSoWhite campaign, and the content of the leaked Sony emails which revealed, among many other things, that a powerful Hollywood insider didn't believe that Denzel Washington could "open" a western genre film, provide glaring evidence that the opportunities for people of color in Hollywood are limited.
In The Hollywood Jim Crow, Maryann Erigha tells the story of inequality, looking at the practices and biases that limit the production and circulation of movies directed by racial minorities. She examines over 1, contemporary films, specifically focusing on directors, to show the key elements at work in maintaining "the Hollywood Jim Crow. Erigha exposes the key elements at work in maintaining Hollywood's racial hierarchy, namely the relationship between genre and race, the ghettoization of Black directors to black films, and how Blackness is perceived by the Hollywood producers and studios who decide what gets made and who gets to make it.
Erigha questions the notion that increased representation of African Americans behind the camera is the sole answer to the racial inequality gap. Instead, she suggests focusing on the obstacles to integration for African American film directors. Hollywood movies have an expansive reach and exert tremendous power in the national and global production, distribution, and exhibition of popular culture.
The Hollywood Jim Crow fully dissects the racial inequality embedded in this industry, looking at alternative ways for African Americans to find success in Hollywood and suggesting how they can band together to forge their own career paths. P43 A15 G87 Lawlor Call Number: KF L39 Misinformation about self-defense rights and laws is what has sparked major debate over the misapplication of lethal force in civilian communities. Bruce Lawlor identifies the major issues in self-defense cases, and the legal approaches used to resolve them.
The result is less confusion and greater understanding of what self-defense is, and how to go about determining if a homicide is self-defense or murder. Schechter Contribution by ; R. Vogt Contribution by Call Number: E W55 P65 Wells-Barnett --like so many prominent women in journalism and politics--was a forgotten figure in American culture. This edited volume takes a fresh look at this daring African-American woman who tirelessly advocated for the rights of women, minorities, and members of the working class" -- iPage.
Wells-Barnett worked tirelessly throughout her life as a political advocate for the rights of women, minorities, and members of the working class. Despite her significance, until the s Wells-Barnett's life, career, and legacy were relegated to the footnotes of history. Beginning with the posthumously published autobiography edited and released by her daughter Alfreda in , a handful of biographers and historians--most notably, Patricia Schechter, Paula Giddings, Mia Bay, Gail Bederman, and Jinx Broussard--have begun to place the life of Wells-Barnett within the context of the social, cultural, and political milieu of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
This edited volume seeks to extend the discussions that they have cultivated over the last five decades and to provide insight into the communication strategies that the political advocate turned to throughout the course of her life as a social justice crusader.
C65 D66 K86 H86 Hunt's first tunnel trips inspired a lifelong fascination with exploring underground worlds, from the derelict subway stations and sewers of New York City to the sacred caves, catacombs, and tombs, from bunkers to ancient underground cities in more than twenty countries around the world. In a narrative spanning continents and epochs, Hunt tracks the origins of life with a team of NASA microbiologists a mile beneath the Black Hills, descends with an Aboriginal family into a 35,year-old sacred mine in the Australian outback, and more.
Each adventure is woven with findings in mythology and anthropology, natural history and neuroscience, literature and philosophy. R S43 In , working alone in a remote Swiss asylum, psychiatrist Hermann Rorschach devised an experiment to probe the human mind. For years he had grappled with the theories of Freud and Jung while also absorbing the aesthetic of a new generation of modern artists. He had come to believe that who we are is less a matter of what we say, as Freud thought, than what we see.
Rorschach himself was a visual artist, and his test, a set of ten carefully designed inkblots, quickly made its way to America, where it took on a life of its own. Co-opted by the military after Pearl Harbor, it was a fixture at the Nuremberg trials and in the jungles of Vietnam. It became an advertising staple, a cliche in Hollywood and journalism, and an inspiration to everyone from Andy Warhol to Jay-Z. The test was also given to millions of defendants, job applicants, parents in custody battles, workers applying for jobs, and people suffering from mental illness -- or simply trying to understand themselves better.
And it is still used today.
Damion Searls draws on unpublished letters and diaries, and a cache of interviews with Rorschach's family, friends, and colleagues, to tell the story of the test's creation, its controversial reinvention, and its endurance -- and what it all reveals about the power of perception. American Intolerance by Robert E. Bartholomew; Anja E. Reumschuessel Call Number: JV B27 U6 H96 Every working person in the United States asks the same question, how secure is my job?
For a generation, roughly from to , business and government leaders embraced a vision of an American workforce rooted in stability. But over the last fifty years, job security has cratered as the postwar institutions that insulated us from volatility--big unions, big corporations, powerful regulators--have been swept aside by a fervent belief in "the market. A series of deliberate decisions preceded the digital revolution and upended the longstanding understanding of what a corporation, or a factory, or a shop, was meant to do.
Temp tells the story of the unmaking of American work through the experiences of those on the inside: consultants and executives, temps and office workers, line workers and migrant laborers. It begins in the sixties, with economists, consultants, business and policy leaders who began to shift the corporation from a provider of goods and services to one whose sole purpose was to maximize profit--an ideology that brought with it the risk-taking entrepreneur and the shareholder revolution and changed the very definition of a corporation.
With Temp, Hyman explains one of the nation's most immediate crises. Uber are not the cause of insecurity and inequality in our country, and neither is the rest of the gig economy. The answer goes deeper than apps, further back than downsizing, and contests the most essential assumptions we have about how our businesses should work.
W45 Tolkien, whose Middle Earth is heavily indebted to Germanic and Norse mythology, as well as Hollywood and comic-culture. In Tales of Valhalla, the Whittocks have dramatically retold these rich stories and sets them in context within the wider Viking world. Including both myths--stories, usually religious, which explain origins, why things are as they are, the nature of the spiritual--and legends--stories which attempt to explain historical events and which may involve historical characters but which are told in a non-historical way and which often include supernatural events.
Tales from Valhalla is an accessible and lively volume that brings these hallmarks of world literature to a new generation. She was gone for only a few minutes, and when she came back he was still happily absorbed in a game. What Brooks didn't know was that a stranger had filmed her and would go on to send the video to the police. The fallout from this single moment would consume the next several years of Kim's life and spur her to investigate the broader role America's culture of fear plays in parenthood.
In her searingly honest memoir, Small Animals, Brooks dives into the American psyche of competition and anxiety, all while recounting the two most harrowing years of her life. Brooks asks, Of all the emotions inherent in parenting, is there any more universal or profound than fear? Why have our notions of what it means to be a good parent changed so radically?
In what ways do these changes impact the lives of parents, children, and the structure of society at large? And what, in the end, does the rise of fearful parenting tell us about ourselves? In her signature style, by turns funny, penetrating, and always illuminating O A6 D45 Explains how fugitive slaves escaping from the South to the northern states awakened northerners to the true nature of slavery and how the Compromise of and the Fugitive Slave Act divided the nation and set it on the path to civil war.
Hotez; Arthur L. Hotez's nineteen-month-old daughter, Rachel, was diagnosed with autism. Hotez, a pediatrician-scientist who develops vaccines for neglected tropical diseases affecting the world's poorest people, became troubled by the decades-long rise of the influential anti-vaccine community and their inescapable narrative around childhood vaccines and autism.
The alleged link between the two was first espoused in a fraudulent scientific paper, long since retracted, but the story shows no signs of letting up. As a result, we've seen deadly and disabling outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases around the country, and Texas, where Hotez lives, is at particular risk. In Vaccines Did Not Cause Rachel's Autism, Hotez draws on his experiences as a pediatrician, vaccine scientist, and father of an autistic child.
A uniquely authoritative account, this important book persuasively provides evidence for the genetic basis of autism and illustrates how the neurodevelopmental pathways of autism are under way before birth. Hotez reminds readers of the many victories of vaccines over disease while warning about the growing dangers of the anti-vaccine movement, especially in the United States and Europe.
A former US Science Envoy for the Department of State, he also explains what's at stake if the movement continues to gain ground. Caplan, this book is a must-read for parent groups, child advocates, teachers, health-care providers, government policymakers, health and science policy experts, and anyone caring for a family member or friend with autism"--Provided by publisher.

A53 M M45 Now, author Jeffrey Melnick reveals just how much the Family creepy crawled their way through Los Angeles in the sixties and then on through American social, political, and cultural life for close to fifty years, firmly lodging themselves in our minds.
Even now, it is almost impossible to discuss the sixties, teenage runaways, sexuality, drugs, music, California, and even the concept of family without referencing Manson and his "girls. Ever since they spent two nights killing seven residents of Los Angeles--what we now know as the "Tate-LaBianca murders"--The Manson family has rarely slipped from the American radar for long.
What is it about Charles Manson and his family that captivates us still?

R62 Frederick Douglass by David W. Blight Call Number: E D75 B As a young man Frederick Douglass escaped from slavery in Baltimore, Maryland.
He was fortunate to have been taught to read by his slave owner mistress, and he would go on to become one of the major literary figures of his time. He wrote three versions of his autobiography over the course of his lifetime and published his own newspaper. His very existence gave the lie to slave owners: with dignity and great intelligence he bore witness to the brutality of slavery. Initially mentored by William Lloyd Garrison, Douglass spoke widely, often to large crowds, using his own story to condemn slavery.
He broke with Garrison to become a political abolitionist, a Republican, and eventually a Lincoln supporter. He denounced the premature end of Reconstruction and the emerging Jim Crow era. In his unique and eloquent voice, written and spoken, Douglass was a fierce critic of the United States as well as a radical patriot. He sometimes argued politically with younger African-Americans, but he never forsook either the Republican party or the cause of black civil and political rights.
In this remarkable biography, David Blight has drawn on new information held in a private collection that few other historians have consulted, as well as recently discovered issues of Douglass's newspapers. Blight tells the fascinating story of Douglass's two marriages and his complex extended family. Douglass was not only an astonishing man of words, but a thinker steeped in Biblical story and theology. There has not been a major biography of Douglass in a quarter century. T Looks at the ways that current dramatic shifts in the domestic and global economy have their roots in the economic crisis and its aftermath, exploring novel themes in the way the crisis has played out for the past decade and will influence the future.

Tikkun Olam, the Hebrew injunction to "repair the world," with its profound meaning for a young girl who grew up during the Holocaust and World War II. Her years on the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, deciding cases the way she played golf, as she, left-handed, played with right-handed clubs--aiming left, swinging right, hitting down the middle.

S78 A comprehensive history of electronic music from the earliest experimental instruments to the modern EDM scene. In , Shane Bauer was hired for 9 dollars an hour to work as an entry-level prison guard at a private prison in Winnfield, Louisiana. An award-winning investigative journalist, he used his real name; there was no meaningful background check. Four months later, his employment came to an abrupt end.
But he had seen enough, and in short order he wrote an expose about his experiences that won a National Magazine Award and became the most-read feature in the history of the magazine Mother Jones. Still, there was much more that he needed to say. In American Prison, Bauer weaves a much deeper reckoning with his experiences together with a thoroughly researched history of for-profit prisons in America from their origins in the decades before the Civil War.
