As F. Scott Fitzgerald portrayed the mad glories of the 1920s on the printed page, Tamara de Lempicka (1898-1980) captured them on canvas. A seductive Garbo-esque beauty with an irresistible force of personality, this refugee of the Russian Revolution successively conquered Paris, Hollywood, and New York with coruscating portraits of the world's rich and famous. Her Art Deco paintings earned for her a life more fabulously excessive than anything Fitzgerald dreamed of. Passion by Design, authored by Tamara de Lempicka's own daughter, is an intimate look at a fascinating personality, and remains the best account of her life and work. This new edition is illustrated with vibrant color reproductions of her finest paintings, as well as exclusive photographs from family albums. A new introduction by Marisa de Lempicka, the artist's great-granddaughter, explores the ever-evolving legacy of Tamara de Lempicka, from the record eight-figure price fetched by her painting Portrait de Marjorie Ferry in February 2020 (smashing her previous record set just a few months previous for La Tunique rose) to the new musical based on her life.

She's designing his home, but he has designs on her. When interior designer Shana Coltrane lands her dream job in Houston's prestigious River Oaks neighborhood, she has no idea the historic Mediterranean mansion belongs to the jerk who crashed into her brand-new BMW. She can handle the challenging deadline to furnish his house for the charity fundraiser, but nothing prepares her for the distraction of her handsome client's relentless pursuit. Smitten with Shana's stunning beauty and creative talent, billionaire Terrance Kensington is blindsided by his last-resort designer. In a short red dress and black stilettos, she rearranges his furniture as easily as his plans to remain a bachelor. Only she has the power to rescue him from his dark past. But first, he must shed his carefully cultivated socialite image and the guilt he's harbored for years...

Students become attentive, curious, and passionate about learning when they can see its relevance to their lives and when they're empowered to use that learning to solve problems that matter. Regardless of the subject or grade level you teach, you can infuse your instruction with the meaning students crave by implementing design thinking. Design thinking prompts students to consider: "I've learned it. Now what am I going to do with it?" In Designed to Learn, cognitive scientist and educator Lindsay Portnoy shares the amazing teaching and learning that take place in design thinking classrooms. To set the stage, she provides easy-to-implement strategies, classroom examples, and clear tools to scaffold the processes of inquiry, discovery, design, and reflection. Because formative assessment is crucial to the process, Portnoy includes sample assessments that measure student learning and ensure that learners take the lead in their own learning. As the author guides you through the five elements of design thinking (understand and empathize, identify and research, communicate to ideate, prototype and test, and iterate and reflect), you'll learn how to support students as they - Use the content you teach to solve a problem in their community or in the world around them. - Isolate a concern for their designed solution to address. - Communicate ideas and provide valid reasoning for potential solutions. - Prototype a solution and test it. - Revise their design for maximum impact and reflect on the process. Equipped with the strategies and supports in Designed to Learn, teachers will be able to ensure that learning in their classrooms is visible, student-centered, and measurable—by design.

Britain’s high street revolution has made retailing one of the most important and dynamic sectorsof the British economy in the last twenty years. It has had an irreversible impact on our towns and cities and, for many people, transformed shopping from an unattractive domestic chore to a pleasurable ‘leisure ‘experience’, offering consumers an everchanging array of ‘disposable dreams’. The resulting ‘retail culture’ is everywhere – it has colonised huge areas of our social life outside the traditional high street, from sporting venues to arts centres, from railway termini to museums. Many see it as the epitome of Thatcher’s Britain, breeding acquisitive individualism and destroying our traditional manufacturing base. Others see it as a potential saviour of an ailing economy. Yet to date there has been no thorough analysis of this all-pervasive phenomenon, from its economic roots to its profound social effects. In Consuming Passion, Carl Gardner and Julie Sheppard have written the first overall study of the ‘retail revolution’ – a controversial and hard-hitting look at where retailing has come from, what it has achieved and where it is going. Key issues such as the role of design, the growth of the supermarket and shopping centre and the poor conditions of retail employment are all minutely examined. The book also discusses the very real pleasures that consumers gain from today’s enhanced shopping experience. The authors take an iconoclastic look at some of the powerful myths that have sprung up around retail: ‘the death of the high street’ scenario; the central role of credit; retailing as a major creator of employment; and the imminent possibility of ‘retail saturation’. A fascinating book for everyone who likes shopping – and even those who hate it. First published 1989.

Dr. Saad al Barrak is no ordinary businessman. His approach to business comes from the souks of his native Kuwait, but is also shaped by an American and British education, occupation and war, and his own warm and human leadership style. In just seven years (2002-2009), al Barrak transformed a moribund, ex-stateowned telecoms operator with a base of 500,000 customers in Kuwait, into the international giant Zain, a company with over 72 million customers across twenty-two countries. Over the same period, revenues leapt from $570 million to a staggering $8 billion. Saad al Barraks respect for the human dimension in business dealings shines through this insightful and entertaining book. His call to be bold, be daring, be different, has revolutionised the business models of companies such as McKinsey.

Follow Your Passion, Find Your Power is a down-to-earth, no-hype, motivational approach to take control of your life and get the things you want.
