A book for teachers and parents of adolescents. It is colorful, absorbing, illuminating, and—critically—practical. Each chapter draws on the perceptions and writings of teenage boys and girls, and uses these to build a specific knowledge about what it means to be an adolescent at school, what it means to be ‘cool’ and ‘normal’, and the effects of these social constructions on learning and relationships.

How to Bulid a Great Screenplay is a definitive guide on the mechanics of screenwriting--filled with examples--from the author of The Tools of Screenwriting. Acclaimed USC screenwriting teacher David Howard has guided hundreds of students to careers in writing for film and television. Drawing on decades of practical experience and savvy, How to Build a Great Screenplay deconstructs the craft of screenwriting and carefully reveals how to build a good story from the ground up. Howard eschews the "system" offered by other books, emphasizing that a great screenplay requires dozens of unique decisions by the author. He offers in-depth considerations of: * characterization * story arc * plotting and subplotting * dealing with coincidence in story plotting * classical vs. revolutionary screenplay structure * tone, style, and atmosphere * the use of time on screen * the creation of drama and tension * crucial moments in storytelling Throughout the book, Howard clarifies his lessons through examples from some of the most successful Hollywood and international script-oriented films, including Pulp Fiction, American Beauty, Trainspotting, North by Northwest, Chinatown, and others. The end result is what could very well become the classic text in the field---a bible for the burgeoning screenwriter.

Becoming a Compassionate Human Being: Mind, Body and Soul. After 2000 years, Christians are still confused and in question to their great design. With a purpose, we all are to aspirer to make us each the quality and moral individuals we define to being: A Compassionate Human Being. The reason for this book is to help re-define this by step by step insight, bring all Christians back to the basic and to reflect back with the positive scriptures that the Bible has held. I have bridged together God's Laws and virtues with the opposing enemy and the seven sins. Breaking them down by first the mind, body and then the soul, based on the dimensions that sin worms its way into our common daily lives. This Biography is a duel bio really. Both women, Brenda and Karen, sisters who for a great numbers of years, grew up in different homes, never sharing their childhood due to family tragedy that children never get a say in. Both were adopted out, but all the while knowing about each other, and their four siblings, who all were in different locations. Once grown, both women did their best to gain some type of family relationship, all the while dealing with their own growing families. Facing violence in the home, deceit imposed divorces, painful heartaches with children, and some even facing homelessness. ? Between both women, the journey wasn't without gain of self-awareness, uncommon strength to endure, and finally, a passionate love for others even under their darkest times. Their uncommon connection to people is due to remembering the journey they both have and a rich insight to the purpose that God has always had for them. This is an overview of the lifetime of Brenda Walker and Karen Ring.

Normal people are extremely unusual. Think of all the people you know and ask yourself how many are normal. None of them! In fact you're probably the most normal of the lot and, let's face it, even you're not that normal. All normal people believe they are a little bit different, a little bit unique and a little bit special. On the other hand no one wants to be abnormal, so it's a fine line to tread. Happily, this brilliantly funny book shows everyone exactly how to be uniquely normally normal. Is it normal to: ... hold the banister with both hands? ... find the green man at crossings mildly attractive? ... drive a shopping trolley on the right? ... be afraid of aggressive hand dryers? ... wonder what coconut milk is actually for? Find out the answers to these and a million other perfectly normal questions in another beautifully funny, surprisingly wise and consistently heart-warming book from the best-selling Guy Browning.

Dance is part of the art of theatre, a part which connects to movement, to communication, to improvisation, and to performance. It cannot exist on its own in the context of dramatic performance, but works in conjunction with other elements to enable meanings to be created in performance. Dramatic Dance sets a programme for actors to perform dance as part of the drama, offering several approaches which can contribute to developing this understanding, to training this skill, and always ensuring that the whole active and thinking body and mind are fully engaged with the task of making dance an integral and vital part of theatre. To study dance in this way allows students to develop further their understanding of logic and structure in a dramatic text. Many books deal with one aspect of dance or another: some on dance training, some on dance history, some on Rudolf Laban's ideas, some as dance manuals, and some as academic papers. Dramatic Dance is the first book to act as a comprehensive guide for theatre practice, bringing together these different, complementary disciplines.

As we struggle to survive the chaos and confusion of the 21st century, we must each reach our own truth and perspective on life. We must gain knowledge and the wisdom to put it to good use. We want to be accepted, to be loved, to feel free to be what we are, and in so doing we strive to be “normal,” even if it doesn’t fit our personal agenda. But by being kind, respectful, and tolerant, one by one, we can all make a difference. It Is Normal to Be Normal is an unpretentious yet powerful philosophy that strives to make sense out of this tumultuous world!

This book grew out of the lectures that I prepared for my students in epis temology at SUNY College at Brockport beginning in 1974. The conception of the problem of perception and the interpretation of the sense-datum theory and its supporting arguments that are developed in Chapters One through Four originated in these lectures. The rest of the manuscript was first written during the 1975-1976 academic year, while I held an NEH Fellowship in Residence for College Teachers at Brown University, and during the ensuing summer, under a SUNY Faculty Research Fellowship. I wish to express my sincere gratitude to the National Endowment for the Humanities and to the Research Foundation of the State University of New York for their support of my research. I am grateful to many former students, colleagues, and friends for their stimulating, constructive comments and criticisms. Among the former stu dents whose reactions and objections were most helpful are Richard Motroni, Donald Callen, Hilary Porter, and Glenn Shaikun. Among my colleagues at Brockport, I wish to thank Kevin Donaghy and Jack Glickman for their comments and encouragement. I am indebted to Eli Hirsch for reading and commenting most helpfully on the entire manuscript, to Peter M. Brown for a useful correspondence concerning key arguments in Chapters Five and Seven, to Keith Lehrer for a criticism of one of my arguments that led me to make some important revisions, and to Roderick M.

Maturity

One of the greatest spiritual leaders of the twentieth century encourages us to embrace the qualities of life our advancing years grant us in Maturity: The Responsibility of Being Oneself. In a culture infatuated with youth and determined to avoid old age at all costs, this book dares to raise a question that has been all but forgotten in the age of Viagra and cosmetic surgery. What benefits might lie in accepting the aging process as natural, rather than trying to hold on to youth and its pleasures all the way to the grave? Osho takes us back to the roots of what it means to grow up rather than just to grow old. Both in our relationships with others, and in the fulfillment of our own individual destinies, he reminds us of the pleasures that only true maturity can bring. He outlines the ten major growth cycles in human life, from the self-centered universe of the preschooler to the flowering of wisdom and compassion in old age. Osho’s sly sense of humor runs like a red thread through the book, along with a profound compassion and understanding of how easy it is to be distracted from the deeper meaning and purpose of our lives—which is, ultimately, to flower into our own individual uniqueness and maturity with an attitude of celebration and joy. Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people—along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha—who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

If the greatest gains in human health and longevity came not from medical science but from sanitation and hygiene, why might this not also not be the case with our waning mental health and longevity? That is the question this notable scholar of the human condition takes on and then answers in this provocative book. In the last years of the nineteenth century, when human life was in constant jeopardy from pestilence and desperate living conditions in crowded cities, it was changes in human sanitation and improvements in personal and institutional hygiene that created the biggest jump in health and longevity known to human history. Given that human mental health and longevity has been declining for years, it seemed to this widely-known and respected author that the circumstances are similar. Would it be possible to achieve the same remarkable gains in the health and longevity of the human mind by focusing on the same kind of conditions mental sanitation and mental hygiene? Not only does this book answer in the affirmative. It offers substantial evidence that a similar approach can be enormously effective. Where once it was human crowding that contributed to poor physical health, it is now the impact of toxic mental diets and lack of mental immunity that contributes to our increasing personal and social malaise. At a time when freedoms are expanding, we are suffering from the diseases and dysfunctions that arise from consuming so much junk food for the mind that we no longer know or seem to care where we are heading. The lesson from history is that we know more and more about less and less. We have increased our reach many times over with our communication technologies, from smart phones to entertainment diversions of every sort. But we have not increased our grasp one whit. We are drowning in a sea of information that we have little or no need for. We no longer know what our personal or our collective destination is, or ought to be. So we dont know what course to take. Our minds have become less healthy while what we feed it has become more toxic. It is a dire situation for mankind. This is the kind of book that appears at a time when we are most in need of it.

Page: 272

View: 132

Gary L. Francione is a law professor and leading philosopher of animal rights theory. Robert Garner is a political theorist specializing in the philosophy and politics of animal protection. Francione maintains that we have no moral justification for using nonhumans and argues that because animals are property or economic commodities laws or industry practices requiring "humane" treatment will, as a general matter, fail to provide any meaningful level of protection. Garner favors a version of animal rights that focuses on eliminating animal suffering and adopts a protectionist approach, maintaining that although the traditional animal-welfare ethic is philosophically flawed, it can contribute strategically to the achievement of animal-rights ends. As they spar, Francione and Garner deconstruct the animal protection movement in the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe, and elsewhere, discussing the practices of such organizations as PETA, which joins with McDonald's and other animal users to "improve" the slaughter of animals. They also examine American and European laws and campaigns from both the rights and welfare perspectives, identifying weaknesses and strengths that give shape to future legislation and action.
