The doctor's awakening -- Source, significance, and validity of symbols -- The power of visualization -- Dreams: the brain's creative workshop -- Drawings: when conscious and unconscious disagree -- Interpreting the drawings -- Animals, psychics, and intuitives -- Laugh out loud -- Fake it till you make it.
"In 1979, Siegel, a successful surgeon, took a class from Elisabeth Kübler-Ross that focused on crayon drawing for healing, especially with patients facing life-threatening disease. Siegel incorporated these techniques - many of which were laughed at by others in the medical community. But his Exceptional Cancer Patients' "carefrontation" protocol facilitated healings, often deemed miraculous, and attracted attention. Dr. Bernie found and shared the fact that while patients might need antibiotics, surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, their bodies also want to heal. This innate propensity could be aided by unconventional practices, including drawing. Why? Drawing produces symbols often representing the subconscious. Siegel shows how to interpret drawings to help with everything from why we are sick to treatment decisions and communications with loved ones. All those facing ill-health, and those caring for them, personally and professionally, will welcome the hands-on, patient-proven practices offered here"-- Provided by publisher.

When she kicks her boyfriend to the curb, he doesn't hold back—in spite of the next-day work assignment that will take him completely off the grid for two long months.

Barring an influx of midi-chlorians, she's at a loss to explain what happened, or when...or with whom. Suddenly Gage is back in her life as if he has a right to be there. While she vividly remembers the crush she had on him, she's no one's charity case. But another thing she'd forgotten was just how stubborn Gage can be—especially when her domineering ex tries to stake a claim... Warning. An unforgettable night that gets forgotten. A crazy redneck ex, and a hero who's ready to take on the world, and his past, for his heroine.

The Burger Court and the rise of the judicial right [electronic resource]

July 29, 2016
Graetz, Michael J., author.
New York : Simon & Schuster, 2016.
1 online resource
The fall and rise of the death penalty -- Taming the trilogy -- Closing the federal courthouse doors -- Still separate, still unequal -- Seeking a higher education -- Privacy at a price -- The rocky road to sex equality -- Expression and repression -- A religious people's court -- Corporations are people too -- Battling workplace inequality -- Power and its abuse -- Richard Nixon in Warren Burger's court.
A fresh and revelatory look at the Warren Burger Supreme Court finds that it was not a “moderate” or transitional court, as often portrayed, but a conservative one that still defines the constitutional landscape we live in today. When Richard Nixon campaigned for the presidency in 1968 he promised to change the Supreme Court. With four appointments to the court, including Warren E. Burger as the chief justice, he did just that. In 1969, the Burger Court succeeded the famously liberal Warren Court, which had significantly expanded civil liberties and was despised by conservatives across the country. The Burger Court is often described as a “transitional” court between the liberal Warren Court and the Rehnquist and Roberts Courts, a court where little of importance happened. But as Michael J. Graetz and Linda Greenhouse show, the Burger Court veered well to the right in such areas as criminal law, race, and corporate power. Even while declaring a right to abortion in Roe v. Wade, it drew the line at government funding for poor women. The authors excavate the roots of the most significant Burger Court decisions and show how their legacy affects us today. The most comprehensive evaluation of the Burger Supreme Court ever written for a general audience, The Burger Court and the Rise of the Judicial Right draws on the personal papers of the justices as well as other archives to reveal how the Court shaped its major decisions. It will surprise even legal scholars and historians with its insights into a period that has received too little attention from either.

Engineering Eden [electronic resource] : the true story of a violent death, a trial, and the fight over controlling nature

Prologue -- Part I. American Eden -- Los Angeles -- American Eden -- Yosemite and Yellowstone -- Appalachian Spring -- Frank -- The Balance of Nature -- Berkeley -- Smitty -- Part II. Natural Regulation -- Trout Creek -- The Big Kill -- Starker -- Prometheus.
"The fascinating story of a trial that opened a window onto the century-long battle to control nature in the national parks. When twenty-five-year-old Harry Walker was killed by a bear in Yellowstone Park in 1972, the civil trial prompted by his death became a proxy for bigger questions about American wilderness management that had been boiling for a century. At immediate issue was whether the Park Service should have done more to keep bears away from humans, but what was revealed as the trial unfolded was just how fruitless our efforts to regulate nature in the parks had always been. The proceedings drew to the witness stand some of the most important figures in twentieth century wilderness management, including the eminent zoologist A. Starker Leopold, who had produced a landmark conservationist document in the 1950s, and all-American twin researchers John and Frank Craighead, who ran groundbreaking bear studies at Yellowstone. Their testimony would help decide whether the government owed the Walker family restitution for Harry's death, but it would also illuminate decades of patchwork efforts to preserve an idea of nature that had never existed in the first place. In this remarkable excavation of American environmental history, nature writer and former park ranger Jordan Fisher Smith uses Harry Walker's story to tell the larger narrative of the futile, sometimes fatal, attempts to remake wilderness in the name of preserving it. Tracing a course from the founding of the national parks through the tangled twentieth-century growth of the conservationist movement, Smith gives the lie to the portrayal of national parks as Edenic wonderlands unspoiled until the arrival of Europeans, and shows how virtually every attempt to manage nature in the parks has only created cascading effects that require even more management. Moving across time and between Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Glacier national parks, Engineering Eden shows how efforts at wilderness management have always been undone by one fundamental problem--that the idea of what is 'wild' dissolves as soon as we begin to examine it, leaving us with little framework to say what wilderness should look like and which human interventions are acceptable in trying to preserve it. In the tradition of John McPhee's The Control of Nature and Alan Burdick's Out of Eden, Jordan Fisher Smith has produced a powerful work of popular science and environmental history, grappling with critical issues that we have even now yet to resolve"-- Provided by publisher.

Finding Our Way Home [electronic resource] : Heartwarming Stories That Ignite Our Spiritual Core

July 29, 2016
Jampolsky, Gerald
Carlsbad : Hay House, Inc., 2008.
1 online resource
In a deeply heartfelt way, Jerry Jampolsky and Diane Cirincione share stories of their spiritual journey, detours they've taken, and people who have impacted them along their life trail. Using the Hawaiian tradition of talking story, Jerry and Diane demonstrate the daily application of spiritual principles and practical spirituality. Individually and together, they weave their journey for us as it continues to evolve from the influences around them. They inspire us to embrace and share our own stories of peaks and valleys that make up our journeys. The authors honest and vulnerable style of communicating continues to reveal their life purposes in the choices they make and the lessons they've learned. Each day still provides challenges and circumstances that call to those parts of us that want to judge others or ourselves, they write. What is different now is that we more quickly recognize when we're lost and the choice we have to return to the path of unconditional love. Once we remember that our purpose is service and helping others, as well as letting go of our judgments and grievances by practicing forgiveness, the path is easier, the direction clearer, and the destination of peace achievable

Flyover nation [electronic resource] : you can't run a country you've never been to

July 29, 2016
Loesch, Dana, author.
New York : Penguin Publishing Group, 2016.
1 online resource
You can't unfriend family -- Against the powers of this dark world -- Profiles in pandering -- Defending American exceptionalism -- A heart problem and a criminal-justice problem -- Professional agitators -- Degrading yourself and calling it equality -- Forgetting who we are -- Conserving what we have -- Our leaders hate us -- Epilogue.
"Blaze TV and top radio host Dana Loesch explains that the biggest political problem today is that the people who run this country have no idea what life is really like for ordinary Americans. In fact, they have contempt for the very people they claim to represent. When the owners of a small pizza parlor in Indiana were asked by the local press whether they would ever cater a gay wedding, they said no, citing their personal religious beliefs. The internet responded with immediate outrage, posting death threats and vicious online reviews, and forcing them to shut down. All for expressing a personal opinion rooted in faith, in response to a completely hypothetical question. A new front in the culture war had been opened. When the owners of the pizza parlor told Dana Loesch on a Blaze TV interview that they might never reopen, Loesch started a fundraising campaign. Hundreds of thousands of dollars quickly poured in to support them. The people donating weren't taking a stand against gay rights; they just believed that a random mom-and-pop shop shouldn't be run out of business because media and political elites on both coasts caricature and vilify rural Americans. Most of the problems with our country today can be traced to a very simple cause - the growing disconnect between the government and media elites and the rest of us, the old-fashioned, hard-working, God-fearing Americans who are proud to live in middle America. As Loesch explains, too many people getting on their high horse about Wal-Mart have never shopped in one. Protesters outraged at small town cops have never been helped by one. Environmentalists who claim to want to protect the spotted owl have never been in the woods with one. Atheists who attack committed Christians have never sat in a pew with one. Loesch doesn't take aims solely at the Democrats; some Republicans in Congress and on the presidential campaign trail have also forgotten what life is like for the people back home. While these so-called leaders may have forgotten the people in coal towns and farming communities, the voters in those communities haven't forgotten Washington's betrayals. And it will show in 2016. As one of the most powerful and recognizable voices on talk radio today, Dana Loesch is leading a revolution of America's new Silent Majority"-- Provided by publisher.

Framed [electronic resource] : Why Michael Skakel Spent Over a Decade in Prison For a Murder He Didn't Commit.

Kennedy, Robert F.

1 online resource
On Halloween 1975, Martha Moxley was found brutally murdered outside her home in swanky Greenwich, Connecticut. Twenty-seven years after her death, the State of Connecticut spent some $25 million to convict her friend and neighbor, Michael Skakel, of the murder. At Michael's criminal trial, the State offered no physical or forensic evidence, no fingerprints or DNA, no eyewitness linking Michael to the killing. The trial ignited a media firestorm that transfixed the nation.Now, Skakel's cousin, acclaimed attorney and award-winning writer Robert F. Kennedy Jr. solves the baffling whodunit and clear his cousin's name.Kennedy, with meticulous research and reporting, proves that Michael Skakel did not and could not have murdered Martha Moxley. He chronicles how Skakel was, nevertheless, railroaded amidst a media frenzy by the devious actions of a crooked cop, a trio of mendacious writers, a treacherous family lawyer nursing a secret grudge, a narcissistic defense attorney obsessed by the spotlight, a craven prosecutor gone rogue, and a parade of perjuring witnesses. These colorful characters leap off the pages like seedy villains in a dime-store crime novel...But it's all true.Kennedy also shows how he tracked down the likely killers, a pair of ghosts who moved in and out of Greenwich and whose presence was detected by neither police nor press during 30 years of costly yet shoddy investigation. Today, those men walk free.This startling expose—an explosive exploration of murder and fame—is the tragic true story of Skakel's conviction that the public has never heard. It is the product of hundreds of interviews with Skakel and those who knew both him and Martha Moxley. Kennedy gives us a real-life thriller with twists and turns, and finally answers the 40-year-old question, “Who killed Martha Moxley?"The book is at once a riveting drama and an impassioned critique of the American media and legal system.
