Book excerpt: Edith Small is on a mission. At the age of seventy-five, she faces the ultimate deadline: to finish her life’s work before her time is up. Only three tasks remain on her “Lifetime List of Things To Do.” She must find her high-school sweetheart, watch a sunrise and sunset on a Greek island, and learn to fly an airplane. When she finishes, she intends to fulfill the vow that she made years earlier to live well – and to die well. Ambitious young journalist Lucy Hunt is assigned to follow Edith and write about her for their hometown newspaper. From Oregon to Vermont, New York City, the Greek Island of Santorini, and finally the shores of California, Edith and Lucy take on one adventure after another. Along the way, Lucy examines her own convictions, fears, and identity, and what it means to be a writer of true stories in a complex, changing world. As Edith races to complete her lifetime list, Lucy watches with disbelief and fear to see how her heroine’s story will end.

Summary Book Review Birdscapes :

Download or read book Birdscapes written by Jeremy Mynott and published by Princeton University Press. This book was released on 2021-10-12 with total page 384 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What draws us to the beauty of a peacock, the flight of an eagle, or the song of a nightingale? Why are birds so significant in our lives and our sense of the world? And what do our ways of thinking about and experiencing birds tell us about ourselves? Birdscapes is a unique meditation on the variety of human responses to birds, from antiquity to today, and from casual observers to the globe-trotting "twitchers" who sometimes risk life, limb, and marriages simply to add new species to their "life lists." Drawing extensively on literature, history, philosophy, and science, Jeremy Mynott puts his own experiences as a birdwatcher in a rich cultural context. His sources range from the familiar--Thoreau, Keats, Darwin, and Audubon--to the unexpected--Benjamin Franklin, Giacomo Puccini, Oscar Wilde, and Monty Python. Just as unusual are the extensive illustrations, which explore our perceptions and representations of birds through images such as national emblems, women's hats, professional sports logos, and a Christmas biscuit tin, as well as classics of bird art. Each chapter takes up a new theme--from rarity, beauty, and sound to conservation, naming, and symbolism--and is set in a new place, as Mynott travels from his "home patch" in Suffolk, England, to his "away patch" in New York City's Central Park, as well as to Russia, Australia, and Greece. Conversational, playful, and witty, Birdscapes gently leads us to reflect on large questions about our relation to birds and the natural world. It encourages birders to see their pursuits in a broader human context--and it shows nonbirders what they may be missing.

Book excerpt: ""If you study the past, you won't repeat its mistakes."" That's a hopeful sentiment, but as a formula for moving forward humanely, it's largely useless. A useful appeal to history would adopt the old saying, ""The farther you back up, the better you jump forward."" But the past to which most historians appeal doesn't go back far enough.The long time coming will be the time of living full lives as individuals while living in harmony with others as communities. Everything we need to do to bring that world about we've already done. We must only add humanity's prehistory to its history. It may come as a surprise that all the elements of a humane future can be found in this expanded timeframe, but it's the case. When we synthesize the life-serving aspects of the deep past with those of the recent past, we'll much shorten the time before the world we deserve comes into being.THE LONG TIME COMING attempts such a synthesis.

Download or read book Playing the Cello, 1780–1930 written by Dr George Kennaway and published by Ashgate Publishing, Ltd.. This book was released on 2014-04-28 with total page 298 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This innovative study of nineteenth-century cellists and cello playing shows how simple concepts of posture, technique and expression changed over time, while acknowledging that many different practices co-existed. By placing an awareness of this diversity at the centre of an historical narrative, George Kennaway has produced a unique cultural history of performance practices. In addition to drawing upon an unusually wide range of source materials - from instructional methods to poetry, novels and film - Kennaway acknowledges the instability and ambiguity of the data that supports historically informed performance. By examining nineteenth-century assumptions about the very nature of the cello itself, he demonstrates new ways of thinking about historical performance today. Kennaway’s treatment of tone quality and projection, and of posture, bow-strokes and fingering, is informed by his practical insights as a professional cellist and teacher. Vibrato and portamento are examined in the context of an increasing divergence between theory and practice, as seen in printed sources and heard in early cello recordings. Kennaway also explores differing nineteenth-century views of the cello’s gendered identity and the relevance of these cultural tropes to contemporary performance. By accepting the diversity and ambiguity of nineteenth-century sources, and by resisting oversimplified solutions, Kennaway has produced a nuanced performing history that will challenge and engage musicologists and performers alike.

Book excerpt: This resource considers the Baroque cello's revival as part of the period instrument movement from the viewpoints of over forty cellists from three generations and four luthiers who have worked on period cellos. What emerges is a nuanced and detailed picture of the cello in the past and present and the varied instruments now played under the label Baroque cello. Period instruments played with appropriate techniques have become a major presence in classical music in recent decades. For the cello, which changed substantially between the end of the sixteenth and early eighteenth centuries, it is challenging to describe specific traits for certain time periods, let alone how it was played in those periods. By chronicling the searches of over forty top cellists in England, Europe, and North America, the author goes far in revealing the great variety of forms that exist. This is the first study in which the revival of a single period instrument has been considered in such qualified detail and will be of great interest to musicologists, luthiers, and anyone interested in string history.

This book was released on 2021-05-14 with total page 300 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Have over a hundred years of brain research revealed all its secrets? This book is motivated by a realization that cortical structure and behavior can be explained by a synergy of seemingly different mathematical notions: global attractors, which define non-invertible neural firing rate dynamics, random graphs, which define connectivity of neural circuit, and prime numbers, which define the dimension and category of cortical operation. Quantum computation is shown to ratify the main conclusion of the book: loosely connected small neural circuits facilitate higher information storage and processing capacities than highly connected large circuits. While these essentially separate mathematical notions have not been commonly involved in the evolution of neuroscience, they are shown in this book to be strongly inter-related in the cortical arena. Furthermore, neurophysiological experiments, as well as observations of natural behavior and evidence found in medical testing of neurologically impaired patients, are shown to support, and to be supported by the mathematical findings.

The marriage of Bette and Boo brings together two of the maddest families in creation in a portrait album of family life s uncertainties and confusion. Bereaved by miscarriages, undermined by their families, separated by alcoholism, assaulted by disease, and mystified by their priest, Bette and Boo, in their bewildered attempts to provide a semblance of hearth and home, are presented with a poignant compassion that enriches and enlarges the play, and places Christopher Durang squarely in the forefront of American dramatists."

Mirror 17-year-old Alia, a street-smart recent Brooklynite, is disdainful of the warnings to stay in after dark in her new suburban neighborhood. What could possibly be lurking in the tidy greenways between the upscale houses? And yet, it's hard to ignore that something odd is going on here. Strangers keep mistaking her for a girl named Mikhaila, a girl who has mysteriously disappeared. The bodies of four other girls have been found, untouched, but undeniably dead. And at twilight, she meets the enigmatic and disconcerting Bartholomew, a boy who has secrets and burdens he cannot share. The animals are acting oddly, the suburbs are crawling with danger, and everything seems to come back to Bartholomew and a group of recent immigrants with unusual customs, including being forbidden to mix romantically with the locals. When Bartholomew asks Alia to stand in for the missing Mikhaila, she's drawn against her will into a hidden and compelling world where her heart --and her very life --are at extreme risk. Echo Forbidden and Irresistible 17-year-old Alia, a street-smart recent Brooklynite, was disdainful of the warnings to stay in after dark in her new suburban neighborhood. What could possibly be lurking in the tidy greenways between the upscale houses? But girls are showing up dead of mysterious causes, and she finds herself being drawn into a hidden and compelling world, with the mysterious Bartholomew at the heart. There is an undeniable, powerful --and forbidden --attraction between Alia and Bartholomew, prompted by music, woven into a kiss. The pair find themselves becoming more and more entwined, and the situation among the Others is growing more unstable. Although she knows she's being drawn too far into the world of the Others, she cannot resist the lure of the GodSong, or Bartholomew, even when she might lose everything, including her life. Blaze The Queen Returns --.. As the Others struggle to find balance among themselves and the people of their new home, Alia struggles to return to the life as she knew it before her masquerade as the mysterious and missing Mikhaila. When Alia's masquerade was uncovered, she and Bartholomew were forced apart, and he endured a brutal punishment. There is one saving grace --Alia's gift for the GodSong might provide a clue for the Others to settle more fully into their new life, and an Elder will continue to teach her the sacred weapon. As school begins, however, Alia discovers that Mikhaila has returned --her lover dead --and she is to be Bound in a horrifying and barbaric way. Alia again provides an answer, this time for the Rogues, who kidnap her with intent to save their Queen. As war breaks out, Alia is forced to take a role she never dreamed of, even as Bartholomew is thrust into even greater responsibility. How can they ever hope to find happiness together?

This book was released on 2010-10-07 with total page 80 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Historically, music composed specifically for the hammered dulcimer has been rare.

In addition to solos, there are six ensemble arrangements, including quartets, which are useful for groups and workshop teachers. While this collection is most appropriate for intermediate and experienced players, advanced beginners will be able to play some of the tunes. the collection includes originals from the Sam Rizzetta CDs Dulcimer Boogie, Saving Trees, Trapezoid, Flowing Waters, Ocean's Edge, Bucks & Does, and Seven Valleys.
