“Another beautiful book by Jack Cheng.” —Erin Entrada Kelly, Newbery Award-winning author of Hello, Universe Creative and brave sixth grader Andy Zhou faces big changes at school and at home in this new novel by the award-winning author of See You in the Cosmos, for fans of When You Trap a Tiger and The Stars Beneath Our Feet Andy Zhou is used to being what people need him to be: the good kid for his parents and now grandparents visiting from Shanghai, or the helpful sidekick to his best friend Cindy’s rebellious plans and schemes. So when Cindy decides they should try out for Movement at school on the first day of sixth grade, how can Andy say no? But between feeling out of place with the dancers, being hassled by his new science partner Jameel, and sensing tension between his dad and grandfather, Andy feels all kinds of weird. Then, over anime, Hi-Chews, and Andy’s lizard-inspired artwork, things shift between him and Jameel, opening up new doors—and also new complications. No matter how much Andy cares about his friends and family, it’s hard not to feel pulled between all the ways he's meant to be, all the different faces he wears, and harder still to figure out if any of these masks is the real him. “A joy and a journey.” —Tae Keller, Newbery Award-winning author of When You Trap a Tiger “Sincere . . . Perceptive . . . Captures the joys and complex anxieties of middle school.” —Kirkus "Beautiful . . . Recommended for fans of Erin Entrada Kelly and Nicole Melleby." —SLJ "Realistic . . . Compelling." —Booklist “There’s an aching poignancy [that] will resonate with kids.” —BCCB "Beautifully written, [with] complexity and nuance." —Book Riot “Andy’s quiet courage and budding artistry have readers cheering him on.” —Paula Yoo, National Book Award longlisted-author of From a Whisper to a Rallying Cry
In Multiple Masks, Maureen A. Carr studies Igor Stravinsky's creative process for Oedipus Rex, Apollo, Persäphone, and Orpheus through his musical sketches and other documents?scenarios, librettos, correspondence, reviews, and philosophical commentaries, as well as previously uncited sources for Stravinsky's book Poetics of Music. A clear explanation of Stravinsky's compositional techniques within a broad cultural context emerges for each of these four significant works. Carr concludes that Stravinsky used Greek myths as filters for certain poetic ideas and musical techniques that he developed in his earlier works. At the same time the mythological story lines provided him with the objective stance that he was seeking in these neoclassical works.
This dedicated overview of optical compressive imaging addresses implementation aspects of the revolutionary theory of compressive sensing (CS) in the field of optical imaging and sensing. It overviews the technological opportunities and challenges involved in optical design and implementation, from basic theory to optical architectures and systems for compressive imaging in various spectral regimes, spectral and hyperspectral imaging, polarimetric sensing, three-dimensional imaging, super-resolution imaging, lens-free, on-chip microscopy, and phase sensing and retrieval. The reader will gain a complete introduction to theory, experiment, and practical use for reducing hardware, shortening image scanning time, and improving image resolution as well as other performance parameters. Optics practitioners and optical system designers, electrical and optical engineers, mathematicians, and signal processing professionals will all find the book a unique trove of information and practical guidance. Delivers the first book on compressed sensing dealing with system development for a wide variety of optical imaging and sensing applications. Covers the fundamentals of CS theory, including noise and algorithms, as well as basic design approaches for data acquisition in optics. Addresses the challenges of implementing compressed sensing theory in the context of different optical imaging designs, from 3D imaging to tomography and microscopy. Provides an essential resource for the design of new and improved devices with improved image quality and shorter acquisition times. Adrian Stern, PhD, is associate professor and head of the Electro-Optical Engineering Unit at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel. He is an elected Fellow of SPIE.
As a writer I mainly focus on relationships. All the perils concerned with becoming involved in and maintaining a relationship with the opposite sex. As women, are emotional creatures they sometimes feel that they must have an emotional relationship before beginning a sexual relationship. While men are usually, more visual and physical by nature. They are turned on by physical contact and visual stimuli, but women need so much more then that. Women need emotional and spiritual nurturing, while men tend to lack understanding in that area of womens needs. When the two come together, this tremendous lack of understanding causes an abundance of pain and heartache. Women are left feeling under-appreciated, neglected and unloved. Men on the other hand, usually dont understand what the problem is in the relationship. We often assume they will not understand; there is also a gap in communication, which furthers the stress we feel. As a writer I attempt to explain this pain and heartache that women so often go through because of these misunderstandings. But in the end, we MUST eventually turn to a real relationship with God in order to reach the fullest potential that life has to offer.

Black Educational Leadership by Rachelle Rogers-Ard,Christopher B. Knaus Pdf
This book explores Black educational leadership and the development of anti-racist, purpose-driven leadership identities. Recognizing that schools within the United States maintain racial disparities, the authors highlight Black leaders who transform school systems. With a focus on 13 leaders, this volume demonstrates how US schools exclude African American students and the impacts such exclusions have on Black school leaders. It clarifies parallel racism along the pathway to becoming teachers and school leaders, framing an educational pipeline designed to silence and mold educators into perpetrators of educational disparities. This book is designed for district administrators as well as faculty and students in Race and Ethnicity in Education, Urban Education, and Educational Leadership.
Sleep and Combat-Related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder by Eric Vermetten,Anne Germain,Thomas C. Neylan Pdf
There are few clinical problems in the sleep medicine field that are more challenging than the sleep difficulties experienced by individuals suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This book offers a unique, complete resource addressing all the basic concepts and clinical applications in sleep medicine in settings where combat-related PTSD is commonplace. Authored by leading international experts in the field of sleep/military medicine, Sleep and Combat-Related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is organized in six sections and provides a broad perspective of the field, from the established theories to the most recent developments in research, including the latest neuroscientific perspectives surrounding sleep and PTSD. The result is a full assessment of sleep in relation to combat-related PTSD and a gold standard volume that is the first of its kind. This comprehensive title will be of great interest to a wide range of clinicians -- from academics and clinicians working within or in partnership with the military health care system to veteran hospital physicians and all health personnel who work with war veterans.
Artifacts from Ancient Rome by James B. Tschen-Emmons Pdf
When Roman objects and artifacts are properly analyzed, they serve as valuable primary sources for learning about ancient history. This book provides the guidance and relevant historical context students need to see relics as evidence of long-past events and society. Artifacts from Ancient Rome is a unique social history that explores major aspects of daily life in a long-ago era via images of physical objects and historical information about these items. This book also affords "hands-on training" on how to approach primary sources. The author—a historian also trained as an archaeologist—begins by explaining the concept of using artifacts to understand and "see" the past and providing a primer for effectively analyzing artifacts. Entries on the artifacts follow, with each containing an introduction, a description of the artifact, an explanation of its significance, and a list of further sources of information. Readers of the book will not only gain a composite impression of daily life in ancient Rome through the study of artifacts from domestic life, religion, war, transportation, entertainment, and more, but will also learn how to best understand and analyze primary sources for learning.
