Trouble Don't Last Always is the story of an African American Viet Nam Veteran, now a permanent deacon in the Roman Catholic Church, and how through the grace of God and with the support of his family, friends, and church community, he survived the difficulties and hardships that life gave him and his family. This book tells how he weathered the storms and troubled times that war, poverty, sickness, racism, and the death of his father brought into his life. It is a timely story of hope and inspiration for everyone, but especially targets those who feel that they have nowhere to turn in times of trouble. His journey from Greeneville, Tennessee, to Cleveland, Ohio with a stopover in Vietnam is a story of how troubles and hard times can be diverted or changed when we take responsibility for our actions and let God into our lives. The Reverend Deacon Friend believes that the words of wisdom from his parents as well as his own sense of enlightenment upon his consecration in the Catholic Church are important words for readers to hear. The Reverend Deacon Friend is a Vietnam veteran who is in a master's degree program at Ursuline College, Pepper Pike, OH, and is a deacon at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Cleveland, OH.

Vinyl: A History of the Analogue Record is the first in-depth study of the vinyl record. Richard Osborne traces the evolution of the recording format from its roots in the first sound recording experiments to its survival in the world of digital technologies. This book addresses the record's relationship with music: the analogue record was shaped by, and helped to shape, the music of the twentieth century. It also looks at the cult of vinyl records. Why are users so passionate about this format? Why has it become the subject of artworks and advertisements? Why are vinyl records still being produced? This book explores its subject using a distinctive approach: the author takes the vinyl record apart and historicizes its construction. Each chapter explores a different element: the groove, the disc shape, the label, vinyl itself, the album, the single, the b-side and the 12" single, and the sleeve. By anatomizing vinyl in this manner, the author shines new light on its impact and appeal.

This is a tale of three cousins with a very special magical secret that takes us to strange and awesome adventures in worlds far beyond our reach. Grandfather’s Gold Eddie lives on a ranch in the Arizona desert. The ranch sits under the Superstition Mountain. One day while Eddie’s dad and uncles were in the mountain searching for gold, Eddie found a gold nugget. Too excited to wait for them to return home, Eddie went looking for them. Eddie got lost and fell into a crack. He entered a time warp, discovered a vein of gold a foot and a half thick, and the ghost of his grandfather. Eddie returns from the mountain with not only more gold than his family can use but with a secret so powerful that it sets him and his cousin Jessie on a journey into other worlds and planets far beyond our galaxies. The Planet Htrae Aliens invade Earth. They steal all of Earth’s fresh waters. The evil Captain Rameses from the Planet Zuard in the galaxy of the Five Suns come to earth with a sinister plan to steal Earth’s water and take it back to their home planet. Oceans and rivers disappear. Our world is doomed. Eddie and Jessie must return water back to Earth before our planet becomes a dead star and all life dies. With the help of Grandfather’s spirit placed into a divining water rod and the crew from the Planet Htrae, they take us through the depths of the mountain, caves, volcanoes, fire, gases, spitting lava, and the largest water rapids in the world, all while being chased by aliens. Aliens Among Us A scientist discovers that the Stones of Life and an Ancient Book of Spells are missing from the top of the universe. The stones must be returned. They keep the planets and universe in balance, which creates peace in the cosmos. Time is running out because without the stones, the planets are now unbalanced and are in danger of complete disarray. Jessie and Eddie have won a trip to Egypt, wanting to tell her sister Crystal about the good news, Jessie accidently found out about the universe and cosmos are unbalanced. Crystal and her team are sent back in time to ancient Egypt to retrieve the stones and book. Wanting to help her sister, Jessie devises a way to hitch a ride back in time on Crystal’s vessel, but Jessie’s plan goes awry. Jessie, Eddie and White Cloud, get lost in the tombs of the Valley of the Kings, shot into space, and shot down by space bandits and end up in a time machine trying to find a way home. Bermuda Triangle A starship cruiser crashes into the ocean with nine aliens (ambassadors) from other galaxies. They are on a mission of peace and are pulled into Earth’s magnetic field. Eddie and Jessie discover them and must find a way to fly them back to their home planet. Eddie and Jessie are on a cruise to Bermuda with Eddie’s parents. The ship encounters a weird storm in the Bermuda Triangle. A rogue wave hits the ship, and Jessie and Eddie are washed overboard into the choppy sea, fighting off sharks. They are pulled into the magnetic field forcing them deeper and deeper into the ocean, landing on top of a spaceship. The hatch pops open and they are sucked inside. Sitting on the bridge are two aliens who are ill. They are dying. They find seven more aliens with the same sickness. Jessie and Eddie get in touch with Crystal and her team in hopes they can help her and Eddie find a way to fly the ship out of Earth’s ocean and return them back to the planet of its destination. While in flight, White Cloud finds a alien game called Meet the Master of Your Fate, but he did not read the instructions. On the last level, he is sucked into the game and must find his master before all of the monsters, ghouls, and demons get him.

"Joe Orton's last play, What the Butler Saw, will live to be accepted as a comedy classic of English literature" (Sunday Telegraph) The chase is on in this breakneck comedy of licensed insanity, from the moment when Dr Prentice, a psychoanalyst interviewing a prospective secretary, instructs her to undress. The plot of What the Butler Saw contains enough twists and turns, mishaps and changes of fortune, coincidences and lunatic logic to furnish three or four conventional comedies. But however the six characters in search of a plot lose the thread of the action - their wits or their clothes - their verbal self-possession never deserts them. Hailed as a modern comedy every bit as good as Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, Orton's play is regularly produced, read and studied. What the Butler Saw was Orton's final play."He is the Oscar Wilde of Welfare State gentility" (Observer)

Following on from the widely acclaimed The Actor and the Text - which was addressed directly to the actor - Text in Action is drawn from Cicely's group work experiences, encompassing the viewpoint of the director as well. To begin with, the author explores language from a cultural and personal perspective. In these days of management jargon and internet technology are we losing touch with the ability to communicate fully?' Is the deeper imaginative world being left unexpressed? The main body of the book contains detailed, practical exercises for actors and directors during the rehearsal process. All exercises will be tied to specific scenes, leading to a fuller exploration of the rext. Text In Action analyses the imagery of plays, speech structures, the physicality of language and emphasises the importance of finding a collective voice. Cicely's guidance on the matter of voice will help actors find relationships and situations through the text in a unique way, in order to make it more dynamic and creative.

The High/Scope Institute for IDEAS began in the early 1960s as a summer camp program and is now a dynamic learning program for teens that emphasizes working with them in an environment which supports emotional, social, and intellectual development. The High/Scope model for adolescent programs is based on the following principles: (1) adolescents need a safe psychological environment; (2) adolescents need a chance to make new beginnings; (3) adolescents need program activities designed to relate to their developmental stages; and (4) adolescents need to be given genuine responsibility. This book describes the High/Scope model in the following chapters: (1) "The High/Scope Institute for IDEAS Program--The Beginnings and Evolution," giving the history of the institute along with its philosophy and long- and short-term benefits; (2) "Who Are the Participants and What Do They Need?" focusing on developmental characteristics, tasks and developmental gains, and meeting adolescent needs; (3) "Creating a Supportive Context for Learning," outlining the program schedule and daily routine and also discussing psychological and physical safety, expectations, and adult participation; (4) "The Educational Approach," dealing with the five essential components of choice, active learning, plan-do-review, cooperative learning, and leadership development; (5) "Learning Potential Within the Institute Setting"; and (6) "Lessons Learned: Beyond the High/Scope Institute Model."
