"Vollmann begins No Immediate Danger, the first volume of Carbon Ideologies, by examining and quantifying the many causes of climate change, from industrial manufacturing and agricultural practices to fossil fuel extraction, economic demand for electric power, and the justifiable yearning of people all over the world to live in comfort. Turning to nuclear power first, Vollmann then recounts multiple visits that he made at significant personal risk over the course of seven years to the contaminated no-go zones and sad ghost towns of Fukushima, Japan, beginning shortly after the tsunami and reactor meltdowns of 2011. Equipped first only with a dosimeter and then with a scintillation counter, he measured radiation and interviewed tsunami victims, nuclear evacuees, anti-nuclear organizers and pro-nuclear utility workers."--Amazon.com

The blessing of a skinned knee : using Jewish teachings to raise self-reliant children

April 23, 2018
Mogel, Wendy, 1951-
New York : Scribner, 2008.
304 pages ; 22 cm
Parents' discussion guide: p. 289-304.
How I lost one faith and found another -- The blessing of acceptance : discovering your unique and ordinary child -- The blessing of having someone to look up to : honoring mother and father -- The blessing of a skinned knee : why God doesn't want you to overprotect your child -- The blessing of longing : teaching your child an attitude of gratitude -- The blessing of work : finding the holy sparks in ordinary chores -- The blessing of food : bringing moderation, celebration, and santification to your table -- The blessing of self-control : channeling your child's yetzer hara -- The blessing of time : teaching your child the value of the present moment -- The blessings of faith and tradition : losing your fear of the g word and introducing your child to spirituality.
"In the trenches of a typical day, every parent encounters a child afflicted with ingratitude and entitlement. In a world where material abundance abounds, parents want so badly to raise self-disciplined, appreciative, and resourceful children who are not spoiled by the plentitude around them. But how to accomplish this feat? The answer has eluded the best-intentioned mothers and fathers who overprotect, overindulge, and overschedule their children's lives. Dr. Mogel helps parents learn how to turn their children's worst traits into their greatest attributes. Starting with stories of everyday parenting problems and examining them through the lens of the Torah, the Talmud, and important Jewish teachings, The Blessing of a Skinned Knee shows parents how to teach children to honor their parents and to respect others, escape the danger of overvaluing children's need for self-expression so that their kids don't become "little attorneys," accept that their children are both ordinary and unique, and treasure the power and holiness of the present moment. It is Mogel's singular achievement that she makes these teachings relevant for any era and any household of any faith. A unique parenting book, designed for use both in the home and in parenting classes, with an on-line teaching guide to help facilitate its use, The Blessing of a Skinned Knee is both inspiring and effective in the day-to-day challenge of raising self-reliant children."--Amazon.

Minority leader : how to lead from the outside and make real change

April 23, 2018
Abrams, Stacey, author.
New York, New York : Henry Holt and Company, 2018.
xxiv, 226 pages ; 22 cm
Includes index.
Dare to want more -- Fear and otherness -- Hacking and owning opportunity -- The myth of mentors -- Money matters -- Prepare to win and embrace the fail -- Making what you have work -- Work-life Jenga -- Taking power.
"Minority Leader is a guide to harnessing the strengths of being an outsider by Stacey Abrams, slated to become the first black female governor in the U.S. Networking, persistence, and hard work are the crucial ingredients to advancing a career, but for people like Stacey Abrams, and many in the New American Majority, it takes more than that to get ahead. Stacey, who grew up in a working poor family in Gulfport, Mississippi, rose from humble roots to Yale Law School, and through a career in C-suite businesses, to become the first woman to lead either party in the Georgia General Assembly and the first African American to lead in the House of Representatives. In Minority Leader, Stacey combines aspects of memoir with real-world advice for women and people of color, offering hard-won insights for navigating worlds that, until now, were largely the territory of white men alone. Stacey encourages her readers both to leverage otherness to their advantage and to recognize their own underlying feelings of unworthiness and legitimate fears. Sure, networking helps, but so do well-chosen mentors, thoughtful self-advocacy, and, above all, pinpointing one's genuine passions. Stacey applies her lessons to the recent graduate taking her big idea to the startup level, the Latino city councilman eyeing the mayor's office, and the young assistant navigating her way to a higher position. There is precious little such wisdom out there. Stacey is determined to change that."--Provided by publisher.

"Architects play an essential role in contemporary society, helping to shape the environment in which we live and work. This book explores how architects in Japan have responded to the demands of their times and how they continue to engage with new economic realities and the shifting global order. The moving image of Japanese society is reflected in the work of the architects profiled tin this book: from the generation rising from the ashes of postwar Japan, through the postwar economic boom, to the generation that quietly gathered strength during the recession of the 1970s; from the generation that debuted in the bubble economy of the 1980s to the generation that began their work after the Great Hanshin-Awaji earthquake and the collapse of the bubble economy; and finally, after decades of economic stagnation, to the generation that has come to the fore since the early twenty-first century. Contemporary Japanese architects have pioneered developments in sustainability and introduced engineering innovations that have changed not only the look of modern buildings but the ways in which they can be constructed. Japanese design concepts, realized in major public buildings around the world, communicate with a global audience and contribute toward shaping our shared future" -- Unedited summary from book.

"In the summer of 1980, a group of authority-defying comedy geniuses from Saturday Night Live, the Second City improv troupe, and the National Lampoon magazine created the funniest sports movie ever made. Maybe the funniest movie ever made, period. But the movie we all know and love as a benchmark of comedic film didn't start that way.g. The story of Caddyshack began, improbably, at Harvard University, when three editors of The Harvard Lampoon (Doug Kenney, Rob Hoffman, and Henry Beard) decided to unleash their revolutionary humor on the world at large and publish the National Lampoon. The magazine quickly became a cultural juggernaut, expanding from page to stage and attracting the talents of John Belushi, Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner, and Bill Murray. Together, they set American popular culture on fire, and the Lampoon team quickly turned to film. After Animal House became a box office blockbuster, the brilliant and drug-addled minds of the Lampoon turned their focus on a story from Bill and Brian Doyle-Murray's childhood summers spent working at Chicago country clubs. The making of Caddyshack turned out to be even crazier and funnier than the film, as this ragtag group of party animal filmmakers descended on a Florida country club to shoot the movie over three very memorable months."--Dust jacket.

The inside story of a quest to unlock one of cosmology's biggest mysteries, derailed by the lure of the Nobel Prize.

To build on efforts to reveal the cosmos' ultimate secrets--indeed, to advance science itself--the Nobel Prize must be radically reformed. --Provided by publisher.

"For most of our lives, we work hard, reaching for success, until we are faced with retirement. If you retire at age 65, you may think you have about 20 more years to relax and enjoy your life. But what if you had more time? What if you had another 40 or 50 years to live? Would it make a difference in how you lived? Ilchi Lee stresses that you can extend your life way beyond what most of us have accepted as our biological age limit, even up to 120 years. But the real question is, can we have not only a long life, but also a fulfilling one? Lee's answer is a resounding yes, and it starts with the power of choice, a practice of self-reliance, and most importantly, a greater sense of purpose. A visionary and master teacher who globalized ancient Korea's mind-body tradition, Ilchi Lee lays out a clear path to a new paradigm of longevity and mastery of life. Through personal experience, compelling stories, the wisdom of an ancient Korean holistic practice, and current research on longevity and fulfillment, Lee shows readers how to live fully at any age without regrets."--From Amazon.com.

ix, 436 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations ; 24 cm
"What happens when a Predator drone has as much autonomy as a Google car? Although it sounds like science fiction, the technology to create weapons that could hunt and destroy targets on their own already exists. Paul Scharre, a leading expert in emerging weapons technologies, draws on incisive research and firsthand experience to explore how increasingly autonomous weapons are changing warfare. This far-ranging investigation examines the emergence of fully autonomous weapons, the movement to ban them, and the legal and ethical issues surrounding their use. Scharre spotlights the role of artificial intelligence in military technology, spanning decades of innovation from German noise-seeking Wren torpedoes in World War II--antecedents of today's armed drones--to autonomous cyber weapons. At the forefront of a game-changing debate, Army of None engages military history, global policy, and bleeding-edge science to explore what it would mean to give machines authority over the ultimate decision: life or death."--Provided by publisher.

Multicooker perfection : cook it fast or cook it slow-you decide

April 19, 2018

ix, 182 pages ; color illustrations : 22 cm
Includes index.
Welcome to America's Test Kitchen -- Multicooker 101 -- Soups, stews, and chilis -- Easy suppers -- Roasts and ribs -- Simple sides -- Tex unexpected things to make in your multicooker.
Multicookers like the Instant Pot are hugely popular, yet most recipes are unreliable or are designed to work in only one brand of multicooker. And most often, they use only the pressure cooker setting. America's Test Kitchen put their rigorous testing process to work developing recipes that conform to your schedule. You can make a recipe "fast" using the pressure cooker setting, or prepare it "slow" on the slow cook setting-- if you have the right model. And the recipes are flavorful and creative, whether a classic comfort food or a new twist on an old standard. -- adapted from publisher's info.

"Great leaders made the twentieth century safer and more peaceful. In The Peacemakers, a kind of global edition of John F. Kennedy's Profiles in Courage, Bruce Jentleson shows how key figures in the previous century rewrote the zero-sum and transactional scripts they were handed and successfully prevented conflict, advanced human rights, and promoted global sustainability. Covering a broad range of historical examples, from Yitzhak Rabin's efforts for Arab-Israeli peace to Dag Hammarskjöld's effectiveness as secretary-general of the United Nations and Mahatma Gandhi's pioneering use of nonviolence as a political tool, Jentleson argues that individuals can shape policy--because they have. For each leader, Jentleson tells us who they were as an individual, why they made the choices they did, how they pursued their goals, and what they were able to achieve. An ambitious book for ambitious people, The Peacemakers is a useful guide for anybody who wants to achieve meaningful change on the global stage."--Provided by publisher.
