The book of Esther : a novel by Emily Barton( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What if an empire of Jewish warriors that really existed in the Middle Ages had never fallen--and was the only thing standing between Hitler and his conquest of Russia? Eastern Europe, August 1942. The Khazar kaganate, an isolated nation of Turkic warrior Jews, lies between the Pontus Euxinus (the Black Sea) and the Khazar Sea (the Caspian). It also happens to lie between a belligerent nation to the west that the Khazars call Germania--and a city the rest of the world calls Stalingrad. After years of Jewish refugees streaming across the border from Europa, fleeing the war, Germania launches its siege of Khazaria. Only Esther, the daughter of the nation's chief policy adviser, sees the ominous implications of Germania's disregard for Jewish lives. Only she realizes that this isn't just another war but an existential threat. After witnessing the enemy warplanes' first foray into sovereign Khazar territory, Esther knows she must fight for her country. But as the elder daughter in a traditional home, her urgent question is how. Before daybreak one fateful morning, she embarks on a perilous journey across the open steppe. She seeks a fabled village of Kabbalists who may hold the key to her destiny: their rumored ability to change her into a man so that she may convince her entire nation to join in the fight for its very existence against an enemy like none Khazaria has ever faced before. The Book of Esther is a profound saga of war, technology, mysticism, power, and faith. This novel--simultaneously a steampunk Joan of Arc and a genre-bending tale of a counterfactual Jewish state by a writer who invents worlds "out of Calvino or Borges" (The New Yorker)--is a stunning achievement. Reminiscent of Michael Chabon's The Yiddish Policemen's Union and Philip Roth's The Plot Against America, The Book of Esther reaffirms Barton's place as one of her generation's most gifted storytellers"--

The Harley Clarke mansion : an adaptive reuse proposal by Emily Barton( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis is an analysis and proposal for saving and reclaiming the historic Harley Clarke Mansion in Evanston, Illinois. The Clarke Mansion, built in 1927 during the decadent jazz age, has been under city ownership since its acquisition in 1965. Previously the longtime home to the Evanston Art Center, the building was abandoned in May of 2015, declared too expensive, and left to sit on the shores of Lighthouse Beach. It is a beautiful example of the large lakefront mansions that used to dot Evanston's Sheridan Road. Unfortunately, it is one of the last of its kind. Multiple proposals have been introduced since its vacancy; the most notorious being the suggestion of a boutique hotel. The citizens of Evanston strongly rejected this proposition and it has since become clear that the community wants their parkland to remain public, and under city ownership. This leaves the city with a few options: occupy the building themselves, lease long-term to a tenant, or demolish the structure to make way for additional parkland. In this thesis I will examine the history of the remarkable Harley Clarke Mansion and the issues it has faced in the design proposal process. I will also conduct a brief conditions assessment of the site, evaluating the status of the building's exterior. Finally, I'll present two options for the building that I believe fit both the needs of the city, and those of the surrounding community. Due to access restrictions imposed upon the building by the City of Evanston, I was unable to view and properly asses the interior spaces. Interior proposals were based on photos in the public realm and drawings made available online. As of 2016, the future of the Harley Clarke Mansion is unknown. With government funds at a standstill, the city council has decided to put the building's fate on hold until a budget is resolved, and resources are available. It is clear that the majority of parties involved would like to see the historic mansion preserved, however without viable proposals, the building is still very much in danger

A Laboratory Evaluation of Zaleplon for Daytime Sleep( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zaleplon appears to be a prime candidate for assisting individuals in obtaining sleep in situations not conducive to rest. The primary objective of this study was to determine whether zaleplon (10-mg) effectively promoted sleep during the daytime in well rested individuals when compared to placebo. A secondary objective was to see if, while not expected, the use of zaleplon impacted the performance of these well rested indivIduals upon awakening. Twelve participants, 6 males and 6 females, participated in this study. The study was conducted using a repeated measures design with two within-subject factors: dmg (placebo/zaleplon) and trial (hourly testing during waking hours). Each participant experienced both drug conditions, with drug administration being counterbalanced and double-blinded. During a 3.5 hour nap following drug administration, polysomnographic variables were recorded to measure quality of sleep. Performance measures (cognition, memory, balance, and strength) and subjective reports were collected during every waking trial of each session. Total sleep time, and consequently, sleep efficiency, was statistically higher under zaleplon than under placebo (sleep efficiency = 87% and 76%, respectively). The majority of the gain in sleep occurred during sleep stages 3 and 4. Unexpectedly (given that the participants were well rested) a few of the cognitive performance and memory variables showed improvement after awakening under zaleplon when compared to placebo. Zaleplon, when used by rested individuals for daytime sleep, improves sleep quality
An assessment of modafinil for vestibular and aviation-related effects( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of this study was to provide data concerning both the efficacy and the safe-to-fly dosage of a relatively unique compound, modafinil. Previous studies have indicated that modafinil holds promise as an effective wake-promoting agent for military personnel assigned to sustained operations without the common side effects associated with amphetamine-like substances. The present research was conducted to examine whether 200 or 400 mg doses of modafinil have any effect upon human vestibular functioning at night, to verify its cognitive enhancement capabilities during a short-term, sleep-loss setting, and to document the presence/absence of subjective symptoms. Other measures were investigated for possible effects of over-confidence or dehydration

Daytime Sleep Aids and Nighttime Cognitive Performance( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Air and ground crews are often given rest opportunities at atypical times, outside of a normal entrained circadian sleep period. Due to normal human biology, this practice often leads to delayed, thus shortened, sleep as well as restless sleep. In such cases, a sleep promoting or "No-Go" medication may be prescribed to promote a more restorative crew rest. This study compared two doses of the hypnotic zolpidem, two doses of melatonin and placebo for their effects on daytime sleep, on nighttime cognitive performance and on mood in an operationally and militarily relevant paradigm. The participants worked all night. Subsequently, an Early Group slept from 0800-1600 and a Late Group slept from 1400-2200. The participants worked all night again. Measures included polysomnography, simple and complex cognitive task performance, vigilance, subjective reports, salivary melatonin, and vital signs. Neither zolpidem nor melatonin was successful in improving daytime sleep compared to placebo. Participants slept longer under the medicated treatments, but it was not statistically significant. Sleep inertia was deepened by the use of zolpidem and may prolong degraded performance, sleepiness and fatigue. In this study, there were no advantages for morning or afternoon sleepers for nighttime alertness, mood or performance. The Foret & Lantin (1972) findings of 34 hours of sleep during the day do not appear to hold for sleep-deprived people sleeping under ideal conditions. For two consecutive work nights, ideal daytime sleeping conditions appear to provide nearly as much sleep as a sleep aid and without any risk to nighttime performance or side effects
