    Shadow Realms Demonology Handbook

    $20.00
    More Info
    In this book titled Shadow Realms Demonology Handbook, you will find articles by demonologists Carl L. Johnson and Lana J. Brock. Carl is known for his appearances on Syfy Channel's Ghost Hunters seasons 1 & 2; and Animal Planet's The Haunted in 5 episodes. He also appeared in an episode of A Haunting with his family. Lana appeared on Syfy Channel's Paranormal Witness in an episode called Deliver Us from Evil and a couple of appearances on the Ghosts R N.E.A.R. show PBS Rhode Island. Both have appeared in numerous paranormal radio shows and have shared their experiences as witnesses of the paranormal, the demonic, for which path led them to study and research that field as demonologists. This is their first endeavor branching out beyond, already set standards of what is traditionally known as "demonology"; to "think outside the box" and ponder new theories on negative spirits, demons and the shadow realms for which they dwell. There are differing views between the two authors to demonstrate various perspectives and to display a method of hypothesizing and speculation outside what is known as demonology. Our world is filled with wonderful views of mythology, religious and scientific studies from all cultures. We invite you as we share our thoughts on this topic to consider the possibilities outside of that realm, as we know it.

    Three main challenges faced me as I prepared this fifth edition of "The Bedford Handbook." First, because today's computer-age students want quick access to information, preferably through visuals, I hoped to simplify the book's reference system and enliven it with icons. Second, because technology has changed composing behaviors so dramatically over the past four years, I looked forward to bringing the book into the electronic age. And, finally, because many instructors assign writing based on one or two sources (rather than on personal experience or many sources), I wanted to emphasize text-based writing early in the book, not just in later sections.

    The Oxford Dictionary of Modern Quotations (USED)

    $9.99
    More Info
    Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt, Marcel Proust and Virginia Woolf, Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy, Louis Armstrong and Mae West, Woody Allen and Dorothy Parker--these are but a few of the figures who have given voice to our century's most memorable quotations. Now, in The Oxford Dictionary of Modern Quotations, A.J. Augarde gathers together 6,000 of the best known quotes from our time, drawn from novels, plays, poems, essays, speeches, films, radio and television, songs, and even advertisements.
    Here readers will find the history-making quotes, from Churchill's stirring wartime speeches ("Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few"), to Neville Chamberlain's infamous "Peace for our time," to Spiro T. Agnew's outrageous "If you've seen one city slum you've seen them all." On the lighter side, readers will enjoy such wits as Woody Allen ("It's not that I'm afraid to die. I just don't want to be there when it happens"), Fran Lebowitz ("Food is an important part of a balanced diet"), and Dorothy Parker ("This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force"). There are generous excerpts from literature, from the novels of Hemingway and Joyce, the poetry of Auden, Eliot, and Pound, the plays of Lillian Hellman and Anita Loos, and the lyrics of Irving Berlin and Cole Porter ("In olden days a glimpse of stocking / Was looked on as something shocking / Now, heaven knows, / Anything goes"). Augarde also includes famous book titles (such as Shepherd Mead's "How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying"), song titles (Larry Morey's "Whistle While You Work"), even cartoon captions (Bill Maudlin's wartime "I feel like a fugitive from the law of averages"). And of course, the book brims with wisdom, from Count Ciano's "Victory has a hundred fathers, but defeat is an orphan," to Lord Morley's "You have not converted a man because you have silenced him," to Alfred Adler's "It is always easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them." Designed both for reference and for browsing, the Dictionary arranges quotations in alphabetical order by author, with attributions after each quote so that readers can explore the original quotes in context. In addition, the index helps the reader trace quotations from their most important keywords, so that if you know the quote but not the author, you can still find it easily.
    Whether you want to find out who first used the expression "a walk on the wild side" (it was Nelson Algren) or simply enjoy discovering fine turns of phrase or witty remarks (such as Beatrice Lillie's off-the-cuff comment to a waiter who spilled soup on her dress: "Never darken my Dior again"), The Oxford Dictionary of Modern Quotations offers a unique view of the twentieth century through some of its most memorable lines.

    A parent objects to a curriculum that includes a unit on Greek gods, arguing that it violates the separation of church and state. As a teacher or administrator, how should you respond? This type of issue is one most educators will have to confront eventually, in addition to other hot-button issues such as zero-tolerance policies, drug and alcohol testing, and prayer in schools. The School Law Handbook is designed to enable educators to confront such issues with information, insight, and initiative. The issues are organized into five areas: the school environment, Constitutional issues, students, personnel, and accountability. Within each area are several chapters, each beginning with a realistic scenario followed by legal and practical analyses of the situation. Armed with this knowledge of the parameters governing each scenario, educators can more effectively manage their responses, asking and answering the key questions: - What are the legal boundaries? - What is the district policy related to this issue? - What are the potential strategies for resolution? In this era of unparalleled public scrutiny, The School Law Handbook is essential reading for all school personnel.

    The Teacher Book (USED)

    $5.99
    More Info
    In February 1999, Bobbi Fisher sent an email to a group of teachers nationwide, asking two main questions: "What are some of the specific stresses in your teaching situation and how do you deal with them?" and "When are the times that you feel the most joy in your teaching?" The response was overwhelming. From that mailing, along with subsequent ones to several hundred other teachers, this book grew.

    At the heart of Part I are the teachers' own words - their insights into their personal and professional lives, organized around their joys and pains, obstacles and opportunities, with Bobbi's thoughtful commentary interwoven throughout. The teachers express concerns about the current emphasis on standards, testing, and the problems these initiatives have created for themselves and their students. They explain how they balance time for others with time for themselves - and remain resilient in the process. Many talk about the importance of faith in their lives and how it helps them to achieve their goals.

    In Part II, Bobbi explores some specific strategies for achieving balance that she's shared with teachers throughout the country, in presentations and workshops - finding comfort in friends, tapping our childhood experiences, being open to spirituality (however you define it). She also provides reflection sections with writing activities to help you set priorities and stick to them. Completing the book is a bibliography of resources that teachers have found helpful in their quest for fulfillment.

    The Teacher Book is a book for all teachers and administrators. You will find affirmation, inspiration, and encouragement as you search for balance in your personal and professional life.

How can you boost your iron intake without increasing the amount of red meat in your diet? Which has more vitamin C, an orange or a glass of orange juice? Are all shellfish high in cholesterol?

Throughout the book, you'll find charts and boxes filled with tips, advice, and fascinating facts. And there are literally hundreds of delicious serving suggestions for main dishes, snacks, desserts, and more - all proving that a healthy diet isn't a matter of limiting your choices, but of increasing the variety of foods you eat. Every fact draws on the expertise of the School of Public Health at the University of California at Berkeley - an institution at the forefront ofexamining the link between diet and health, and the authority behind the nation's leading health newsletter, the University of California at Berkeley Wellness Letter.
