Jack Clooney is a twenty-something aspiring writer, who is in love with Allison Blake, the beautiful, adventurous woman who has captured his heart. One evening Allison goes out with her friends and doesn't come home until the next morning. Afterward she tells a heartbroken Jack that she needs space. Jack desperately wants Allison back, but he doesn't know how. He must decide whether he wants to be the man he's always yearned to be, or whether he should continue hanging out with his juvenile friends. Jack solicits the help of his happy-go-lucky brother Kevin, and best friend Annie, to try to win Allison's heart again. As all three friends become immersed in self-destructive mischief, Jack soon realizes that his chances redemption are quickly diminishing. Kevin's attention is diverted away from his quest for true love by plans for a Bigfoot-Sighting Party, and he tries to recruit someone crazy enough to dress up in a Bigfoot costume and scare the partygoers. Mad Season will take you on a twisting, turning, arms-in-the-air roller coaster ride through the insane life of Jack Clooney, who must deal with a loveable, very hairy, eight-foot Yeti who may be the only living thing who can help heal his broken heart.

To live a vibrant and successful life, you must embrace two truths: everyone’s life journey is about change, and each phase of life offers opportunities that we often overlook. No matter where you find yourself in life, you have unexplored talent, untapped resources, and the ability to make the most of the station you are occupying at the moment. If you are fully grounded in your religious or spiritual practices, follow all the moral and ethical rules required to build sound character, but your career is not flourishing or rewarding, there may be some personal lifestyle routines, unrealistic expectations, or self-defeating behaviors worth examining. STATIONS is a collection of articles exploring the life lessons many of us encounter as we grow and change in personal and career paths in a world fueled by information and technology. Author Lynda Mubarak shares essays about teaching experiences, personal observations, professional relationships, health, family dynamics, and career transitions. It is a book designed to create hope for those who may be at a crossroads, or need a starting point for discussions about creating a thoughtful, positive path forward while also recognizing the potential that exists wherever you are right now. Inspiring, amusing, compassionate, smart, and caring, STATIONS is an ideal resource for anyone who wants to engage consciously and deeply with life transitions. If you are not where you would like to be, it's time to change STATIONS and only you can do it. Dr. Lynda believes that we all have gifts and many of them are never unwrapped.

Category: Political Science
This book tackles the challenges that women face in the workplace generally and in the public sector particularly. While Women and Public Service spends time identifying and describing the problems that women faced in the past, it pays special attention to identifying possible remedies to these problems, and also surveys progress made in recent decades. The authors present the challenge of accommodating women in public sector organisations as both a fairness issue and also a human resources matter, as a fundamental prerequisite for recruiting the best and brightest talent. Key content coverage: The representation of women in public organisations, including occupational, agency and position level segregation Issues of pay equity--legislation, equal worth measures, and the serious links between the issue of representation and equal pay Special issues facing women in their workplace, including institutional climate, workplace violence, sexual harassment, social costs of career progression, and family-friendly policies.
An Ecological Study of Vegetation Change with Time in the Lower Mile of an Arid and Semiarid Region
Pubpsher: University of Arizona Press
Category: Technology & Engineering
The Changing Mile, originally published in 1965, was a benchmark in ecological studies, demonstrating the prevalence of change in a seemingly changeless place. Photographs made throughout the Sonoran Desert region in the late 1800s and early 1900s were juxtaposed with photographs of the same locations taken many decades later. The nearly one hundred pairs of images revealed that climate has played a strong role in initiating many changes in the region. This new book updates the classic by adding recent photographs to the original pairs, providing another three decades of data and showing even more clearly the extent of change across the landscape. During these same three decades, abundant information about climatic variability, land use, and plant ecology has accumulated, making it possible to determine causes of change with more confidence. Using nearly two hundred additional triplicate sets of unpublished photographs, The Changing Mile Revisited utilizes repeat photographs selected from almost three hundred stations located in southern Arizona, in the Pinacate region of Mexico, and along the coast of the Gulf of California. Coarse photogrammetric analysis of this enlarged photographic set shows the varied response of the region's major plant species to the forces of change. The images show vegetation across the entire region at sites ranging in elevation from sea level to a mile above sea level. Some sites are truly arid, while others are located above the desert in grassland and woodland. Common names are used for most plants and animals (with Latin equivalents in endnotes) to make the book more accessible to non-technical readers. The original Changing Mile was based upon a unique set of data that allowed the authors to evaluate the extent and magnitude of vegetation change in a large geographic region. By extending the original landmark study, The Changing Mile Revisited will remain an indispensable reference for all concerned with the fragile desert environment.
Renowned advocate and legal trailblazer Peter S. Grant has acted for – and against – virtually all of the major players in the Canadian broadcast and telecommunications industry. His résumé features stints as a rapporteur for UNESCO, Special Counsel for the CRTC, Broadcasting Arbitrator for Canada’s political parties, and advocate for the underdog in the David-and-Goliath struggle to expand Canada’s culture industries. In his sweeping memoir, Changing Channels: Confessions of a Canadian Communications Lawyer, Grant affords readers an insider’s glimpse into some of the biggest changes in the history of Canadian communications policy. Interspersed with fond recollections of his hometown of Kapuskasing and anecdotes of his growing family, Grant provides an eye-opening account of the Canadian communications industries. He documents his role in regulating the telecom carriers, increasing competition among service providers, and acting for dozens of broadcast programming services in front of the CRTC. Grant’s reasoned prose highlights his far-reaching expertise in all areas of communications law and cultural policy, and makes his story compelling to anyone who has picked up a phone or turned on a television set.
Founded in 1885, the Prescott Fire Department began with four 25-man volunteer companies, the Dudes, the Toughs, the Mechanics Hook & Ladders, and the O.K.s. These 100 men reflected both the common man and the leaders of the region. Over the years, their numbers would include governors-to-be F.A. Tritle and Thomas Campbell, business leaders H.D. Aitken and A.A. "Tony" Johns, and numerous members of the Goldwater family. The department and its community survived the great fire of July 14, 1900, as well as the loss of 19 of its own Granite Mountain Hotshots on June 30, 2013. The Prescott Fire Department would go from a volunteer department to a fully paid department of 80 firefighters, operating out of five stations and covering an area of 40 square miles.
