Upgrade me : [tech gadgets and society]( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The future is digital, but is it beautiful? In this program, technology enthusiast Simon Armitage seeks to understand the world's love affair with all things tech and why consumers have bought into an upgrade culture where the "next big thing" may be more about desire and status than it is about functionality. Raising many thought-provoking questions, Armitage introduces viewers to a generation of digital natives for whom tech tools are the norm; delves into the psychological factors that have turned many people into gadget-junkies; examines the ceaselessly accelerating production cycles for upgrades of all kinds; reveals scientific advances underpinning items in Samsung's ultra-cool consumer product lines; and questions the effects of tech on people's relationship with the world and with each other. He also looks to the future, where "Upgrade me!" may become literal as the line between human and machine grows more and more blurred
Homer's Odyssey by Simon Armitage( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new verse adaptation, originally commissioned for BBC Radio, Simon Armitage has recast Homer's epic as a series of dramatic dialogues: between gods and men; between no-nonsense Captain Odysseus and his unruly, lotus-eating, homesick companions; between subtle Odysseus (wiliest hero of antiquity) and a range of shape-shifting adversaries - Calypso, Circe, the Sirens, the Cyclops - as he and his men are 'pinballed between islands' by adversity." "The Odyssey is a book of changes, and Simon Armitage's retelling of Homer's epic quickens and revitalizes our sense of it as oral poetry: as indeed one of the greatest of tall tales."--Jacket

Abbie wants a child more than anything else on earth.

Foiled by mother nature and frustrated by medical science, Abbie has come to a decision. If she can't have a child of her own, then at least she can try and trace her own natural parents. She might not know how to go about it, but she knows a man who does

This translation narrates in crystalline verse the strange tale of a green knight who rudely interrupts the Round Table festivities one Yuletide, casting a pall of unease over the company and challenging one of their number to a wager. The virtuous Gawain accepts, and decapitates the intruder with his own axe. Gushing blood, the knight reclaims his head, orders Gawain to seek him out a year hence, and departs. Next Yuletide Gawain dutifully sets forth.
