Getting to yes : negotiating agreement without giving in by Roger Fisher( Recording )

"This recording offers a concise, step-by-step, proven strategy for coming to mutually acceptable agreements in every sort of conflict - whether it involves parents and children, neighbours, bosses and employees, customers or corporations, tenants or diplomats. The recording tells you how to: separate people from the problem; focus on interests, not positions; work together to create options that will satisfy both parties; negotiate successfully with people who are more powerful, refuse to play by the rules, or resort to 'dirty tricks'."--Pulbisher

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the start of the 1920s, Stephen Mather and Horace Albright push for more park visitation in order to convince Congress to provide funding. They use the automobile to further their cause, and by the mid 1920s, park visits are up to 2 million. The stories of two couples, Margaret and Edward Gehrke, and Glen and Bessie Hyde, and their relationships with the national parks, are featured. A national campaign is undertaken by Horace Kephart and George Masa to protect the last stands of virgin forest in the Smoky Mountains. With the help of John D. Rockefeller, Jr. and newly-elected president, Franklin Roosevelt, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is established
The national parks : America's best idea( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early 20th century, America has a dozen national parks, but they are a haphazard patchwork of special places under the supervision of different federal agencies. The conservation movement, after failing to stop the Hetch Hetchy dam, pushes the government to establish one unified agency to oversee all the parks, leading to the establishment of the National Park Service in 1916. Its first director, Stephen Mather, a wealthy businessman and passionate park advocate who fought vigorously to establish the NPS, launches an energetic campaign to expand the national park system and bring more visitors to the parks. Among his efforts is to protect the Grand Canyon from encroaching commercial interests and establish it as a national park, rather than a national monument
The national parks : America's best idea( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1851, word spreads across the country of a beautiful area of California' Yosemite Valley, attracting visitors who wish to exploit the land's scenery for commercial gain and those who wish to keep it pristine. Among the latter is a Scottish-born wanderer named John Muir, for whom protecting the land becomes a spiritual calling. In 1864, Congress passes an act that protects Yosemite from commercial development for "public use, resort and recreation" the first time in world history that any government has put forth this idea and hands control of the land to California. Meanwhile, a "wonderland" in the northwest corner of the Wyoming territory attracts visitors to its bizarre landscape of geysers, mud pots and sulfur pits. In 1872, Congress passes an act to protect this land as well. Since it is located in a territory, rather than a state, it becomes America' first national park: Yellowstone
The national parks : America's best idea( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By the end of the 19th century, widespread industrialization has left many Americans worried about whether the country will have any pristine land left. At the same time, poachers in the parks are rampant, and visitors think nothing of littering or carving their names near iconic sites like Old Faithful. Congress has yet to establish clear judicial authority or appropriations for the protection of the parks. This sparks a conservation movement by organizations such as the Sierra Club, led by John Muir; the Audubon Society, led by George Bird Grinnell; and the Boone and Crockett Club, led by Theodore Roosevelt. The movement fails, however, to stop San Francisco from building the Hetch Hetchy dam at Yosemite, flooding Muir's "mountain temple" and leaving him broken-hearted before he dies

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following World War II, the parks are overwhelmed as visitation reaches 62 million people a year. A new billion-dollar campaign: Mission 66 is created to build facilities and infrastructure that can accommodate the flood of visitors. A biologist named Adolph Murie introduces the revolutionary notion that predatory animals, which are still hunted, deserve the same protection as other wildlife. In Florida, Lancelot Jones, the grandson of a slave, refuses to sell to developers his family's property on a string of unspoiled islands in Biscayne Bay and instead sells it to the federal government to be protected as a national monument. In the late 1970s, President Jimmy Carter creates an uproar in Alaska when he sets aside 56 million acres of land for preservation, the largest expansion of protected land in history. In 1995, wolves are re-established in Yellowstone, making the world's first national park a little more like what it once was
The educated child by William J Bennett( Recording )

3 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Just as William J. Bennett's The Book of Virtues has helped millions of Americans teach young people about character, The Educated Child delivers what you need to take control. With co-authors Chester Finn and John Cribb, former Secretary of Education Bennett provides the indispensable guide. The Educated Child champions a clear "back-to-basics" curriculum that will resonate with parents and teachers tired of fads and jargon. The Educated Child places parents squarely at the center of their young one's academic career and takes a no-nonsense view of their responsibilities. It empowers mothers and fathers, enabling them to reclaim what has been appropriated by "experts" and the education establishment. No longer will you feel powerless before the education "system." Advocates of trendy approaches, touchy-feely esteem-enhancement schemes, and "values-free" education will disagree. Those who believe that today's low education standards are good enough, or that young Americans cannot be expected to learn as much as children in other lands, will take issue. But if you seek high standards and solid, time-tested content for the child you care most about, if you want the unvarnished truth about what parents and schools must do, The Educated Child is the one audiobook you need to ensure that your little girl or boy receives a truly good education
