When parents part : how mothers and fathers can help their children deal with separation and divorce by Penelope Leach( Recording )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using the latest scientific research in child development, Penelope Leach covers the various effects of divorce on children in five stages of life--infants, toddlers/preschoolers, primary school children, teenagers, college students/young adults--many of whom are far more deeply affected than previously thought. She explains recent studies that overturn many common assumptions and that show, for example, how many standard custody arrangements for very young children are harmful to children's attachment to their parents and therefore to their brain development. There is evidence to suggest that the practice of having infants and toddlers spend regular overnights with noncustodial parents may be damaging, and the practice of dividing children's time equally between the parents is seldom best for the children

The Amazons : lives and legends of warrior women across the ancient world by Adrienne Mayor( )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Amazons--fierce warrior women dwelling on the fringes of the known world--were the mythic archenemies of the ancient Greeks. Heracles and Achilles displayed their valor in duels with Amazon queens, and the Athenians reveled in their victory over a powerful Amazon army. In historical times, Cyrus of Persia, Alexander the Great, and the Roman general Pompey tangled with Amazons. But just who were these bold barbarian archers on horseback who gloried in fighting, hunting, and sexual freedom? Were Amazons real? In this deeply researched and wide-ranging audiobook, National Book Award finalist Adrienne Mayor presents the first comprehensive account of warrior women in myth and history across the ancient world, from the Mediterranean Sea to the Great Wall of China. Combining classical myth and art, nomad traditions, and scientific archaeology, she reveals surprising details and original insights about the lives and legends of the women known as Amazons

We stand at the beginning of one of the greatest ecological disasters in the time of Man. The world is warming and seas are rising. We may deny it, but we can't hide when the water comes. Already the streets of Miami flood regularly and Mick Jones looks more and more prescient when he sang that "London is drowning and I, I live by the river!" all those years ago. And yet water is life. It brings change. Where one thing is wiped away, another rises in its place. There has always been romance and adventure in the streets of a drowned London or on gorgeous sailing cities spanning a submerged world, sleek ships exploring as land gets ever rarer. Drowned Worlds looks at the future we might have if the oceans rise, good or bad. Here you'll find stories of action, adventure, romance and, yes, warning and apocalypse. Stories inspired by Ballard's The Drowned World, Sterling's Islands in the Net, and Ryman's The Child Garden. Stories that allow that things may get worse, but remembers that such times also bring out the best in us all. Author bio: Jonathan Strahan is the multi-award winning editor of such anthologies as Engineering Infinity, Fearsome Magics, The Best of Science Fiction & Fantasy, The Year's Best Australian Science Fiction and Fantasy, and many other ground-breaking collections of the very finest genre fiction

Finding a job after fifty by Jeannette A Woodward( Recording )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

MANAGEMENT: LEADERSHIP & MOTIVATION. When you're 50 or 60 years old, the job market is a combat zone, no matter what your skills or experience. Battle-scarred veterans report that they're passed over time and again for jobs they are eminently qualified for. Successful applicants, often with fewer skills and almost always with far less experience, do seem to have one significant thing in common: they are younger, sometimes painfully younger.There was a time, not that long ago, when you automatically retired at 60 or 65, presuming you actually lived that long. Today, many seniors are still going strong at 60, 70, even 80 and don't intend to retire. Or they've tried the beach hut or snow cottage and found them boring. Increasingly, many such seniors are choosing new careers, ones that fit their particular strengths. "Finding a Job After 50" is a "guerilla guide" that gives you the powerful tools you need to substitute real satisfaction for the rat race

Black man, White House : an oral history of the Obama years by D. L Hughley( )

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

From legendary comedian D. L. Hughley comes a bitingly funny send-up of the Obama years, as "told" by the key political players on both sides of the aisle.What do the Clintons, Republicans, fellow Democrats, and Obama's own family really think of President Barack Obama? Finally, the truth is revealed in this raucously funny "oral history" parody.There is no more astute--and hilarious--critic of politics, entertainment, and race in America than D. L. Hughley, famed comedian, radio star, and original member of the "Kings of Comedy." In the vein of Jon Stewart's America: The Book, Black Man, White House is an acerbic and witty take on Obama's two terms, looking at the president's accomplishments and foibles through the imagined eyes of those who saw history unfold.Hughley draws upon satirical interviews with the most notorious public figures of our day: Mitt Romney ("What's 'poverty'? Is that some sort of rap jargon?"); Nancy Pelosi ("I play F**k/Marry/Kill, and there's a lot more kills than fu**ks in Congress, believe me."); Rod Blagojevich ("You can't sell political offices on eBay; I discovered that personally."); Joe Biden ("I like wrestling."); and other politicians, media pundits, and buffoons. It is sure to be the most irreverent--and perhaps the most honest--look at American politics today
