“Outside of her remarkable poems, we know next to nothing about Yu Xuanji,” David Young writes. “She was born in 844 and died in 868, at the age of twenty-four, condemned to death for the murder of her maid…We owe the survival of her forty-nine poems to the ancient Chinese anthologists’ urge to be complete.” The poems gathered in this bilingual (Chinese/English) edition will be read again and again for their beauty. The works preserve Yu Xuanji’s passion, her sharp eye for detail, her often witty variations on familiar Chinese themes, all of which give the poems an immediacy one rarely finds in ancient, translated texts. Poems addressed to Yu Xuanji’s husband and to other men (some famous poets) and women give us some sense of her relationships; the book also includes other traditional Chinese forms such as meditations on landscapes and occasional poems commemorating feast days. As noted in the introduction, the poetry also provokes us to think about the act of writing, about the culture and politics of the T’ang Dynasty, and about gender.

"In Float, art is far more than decoration. It is the power of achievement and change. Out of it, we're encouraged to believe, may come the transformation of our world." — Maine Sunday Telegram"…a stellar model of eco-literature…" — Cape Ann Beacon"…witty, profound, and beautifully observed…" — Margot Livesey"[Float] is all of these things: joyful and troubling, hilarious and somber, evocative and introspective." — Necessary Fiction When everything around you is sinking, sometimes it takes desperate measures to stay afloat… When Duncan Leland looks down at the garbage-strewn beach beneath his office window, he sees the words God Help Us scrawled in the sand. While it seems a fitting message—not only is Duncan’s business underwater, but his marriage is drowning as well—he goes down to the beach to erase it. Once there, he helps a seagull being strangled by a plastic six-pack holder—the only creature in worse shape than he is at the moment. Duncan rescues the seagull, not realizing that he’s being filmed by a group of conceptual artists and that the footage will soon go viral, turning both him and the gull into minor celebrities. And when an unsavory yet very convincing local, Osbert Marpol, talks him into a not-quite-legitimate loan arrangement, Duncan can’t help but agree in a last-ditch attempt to save the jobs of his employees. For a while, it seems as if things are finally looking up for Duncan—yet between his phone-sex-entrepreneur ex-girlfriend’s very public flirtations and the ever-mysterious terms of his new loan, Duncan realizes that there’s no such thing as strings-free salvation—and that it’s only a matter of time before the tide rises ominously around him again. A wry tale of financial desperation, conceptual art, insanity, infertility, seagulls, marital crisis, jellyfish, organized crime, and the plight of a plastic-filled ocean, JoeAnn Hart’s novel takes a smart, satirical look at family, the environment, and life in a hardscrabble seaside town in Maine.

A thorough industry analysis is of utmost importance for a study on the impact of technological changes on industry structure. This book evaluates the consequences of a vaguely chosen level of an industry analysis. Too broad a definition of the industry may disaggregate sub-industries, processing industries and international aspects. This is illustrated by revisiting an industry study upon which the dominant design model was based. Readers will see and understand the consequences of too broadly defined industries together with quantitative research approach can have. The book argues that the nature of the industry should define the level of the analysis. This is done by revisiting the flat glass industry study, on which Anderson and Tushman’s (1990) dominant design model is partly based. In their study Anderson and Tushman defined the flat glass industry based on four-digit SIC codes. It is argued that this definition was too broad and it disaggregated important sub-industries, processing industries and international aspects. This study uses more accurate analysis in five-digit SIC codes. The empirical findings of this study and Anderson and Tushman’s study are different. Their broader industry definition revealed only the flat glass industry not two sub-industries: plate glass and sheet glass. According to this study the nature of the industry should define the level of the analysis and performance parameter should defined be based on effectiveness instead of efficiency of the innovation. As a consequence of these clarifications this study regards contrary to Anderson and Tushman float glass as the dominant design.

Will It Float? is a journey through the story of Noah and the Ark to glean an understanding of how we need to be the ark of the church. Through prism implications and plank applications, the reader is able to discover the spiritual ideas in the biblical flood narrative and then make practical applications in the building of the church. Through the efforts of the one God called and the journey that he was sent on, we see how God can move His people for His glory. The realization then becomes that we live in the full spectrum of God’s righteousness and love.

All profits from this book go to window fall prevention. This is an engaging book for kids under 7 years old and gives valuable information to parents about how to keep their kids safe. The author, Becca Cunningham, wrote this book after having a personal experience with window falls. In 2010, one of her three-year old sons fell from his second-story bedroom window during nap time. He landed on his head on the concrete below and suffered a severe traumatic brain injury. He was temporarily paralyzed on the left side, spent 5 weeks in the hospital and then a year doing out-patient and in-home therapy. Because of this trying and traumatic experience, Becca and her husband, Jason became active members of the Stop at 4 Window Fall Prevention campaign in Portland, Oregon. In hopes of preventing others from what they endured, she has written this book. Every parent of a child under 7-years old should read, If Kids Could Float "
