From performers who bask in the spotlight to those who find inspiration in the midnight glow of a computer monitor, the world has no shortage of creative people. While the day-to-day realities of a ballerina may be quite different from that of a novelist, actor, graphic artist, musician, or software developer, they share many things in common. Chief among these is the desire to make a living with their art. Maybe you’re working to build a sustainable, full-time creative career. Or perhaps you're happy in the corporate world but would like to turn your love for music, dance, painting, or programming into a steady stream of extra income.

Don’t study harder—study smarter! A guide to academic success without unnecessary stress. High school students are experiencing more pressure and stress than ever—and that can actually undermine their accomplishments. How can parents and teachers help them succeed not just in school, but in life? As someone with experience as both a university professor and a mom, Carolyn Zhao knows that the answer isn’t just to stay up later and study harder. It is possible—and important—to have fun and get A’s. Sharing her method that transformed her own son from a struggling high school student into an Ivy League freshman, Zhao explains that a quality education is not just about achieving high marks, but becoming a well-rounded individual—and top universities and employers are actively seeking such students right now. She reveals: Why developing your “Emotional Quotient” (EQ) is just as important as IQ How to combine intellectual learning with hands-on practice for best retention How to study less and achieve more Why playing sports is crucial for mind, body, and character How having fun develops our creative mind and highest potential How to develop a lifelong service mindset, and more

Many families with a child with autism or Asperger Syndrome feel that involvement in the community is not for them. This book sets out to change that, with a rich and varied menu of suggestions for how such families can take full part in community life and support the strengths and interests of their child at the same time. Informal learning experiences can be the key to self-discovery, communication, self-confidence, and even independence for many children on the autism spectrum. Only outside the four walls of school will your child truly discover their own passions, abilities, and social peers. Get Out, Explore, and Have Fun is a guide to what's out there, how to find it, and how to make it work for your family. The book includes hints and tips for involving your family in the right community activities, from sport to science; information on museums, arts organizations and science institutions as venues for an enjoyable and enriching day out for the family; and resources and ideas for helping your child build on their strengths, interests, and preferred learning styles to explore life in the community. Handouts about autism are included, as well as handouts suggesting ways in which organisations and institutions can successfully include young people with autism in their activities. This book will open the door to community inclusion, creative exploration, and social learning.

Clutching an armload of baseball mitts and billiard balls, I ran after my brood trying to pick up items that were blocking the aisles. I added a pair of tennis shoes, several baseball caps, the camping silverware and a handful of sweat bands to my cache. Meanwhile, the wiffle balls bounced off my legs, and I shouted formy "wrecking crew" to stop. Finally, they ran into a display and I pounced on them. Unfortunately, I dropped most of my huge armload but I had them. Suddenly, I became aware of the spectacle we had created. All around, there were people quietly staring at us. Everywhere I looked, I saw devastation created by my children. Had the store sustained a 7.5 earthquake, the damage could not have been worse. I honestly didn't know what to do.
