英文概要: Yoomi and Daddy are going to Koreatown today! This story celebrates family, resilience, and Korean culture.

Yoomi has planned the perfect Sunday! But the shirt she wants to wear is in the laundry. And she doesn’t have the seaweed she needs for a kimbap breakfast.

So Yoomi wears another shirt and eats a different breakfast, and she and Daddy take a bus to Koreatown, where they read Korean books, eat Korean treats such as patbingsu and tteokbokki, and visit Grandma. Though Yoomi’s perfect day is filled with mishaps and things don’t always go her way, Yoomi learns the advantages of being resilient and open-minded. Yoomi’s imperfect day is better than she ever could have imagined!

A family recipe for kimbap is included.

《成就乔氏商业模式》
by JOE COULOMBE (AUTHOR), PATTY CIVALLERI
亚马逊评级: 亚马逊评级 页数:288    定价:美元   上传日期:2021-6-24
< /td>
英文概要: Build an iconic shopping experience that your customers love—and a work environment that your employees love being a part of—using this blueprint from Trader Joe’s visionary founder, Joe Coulombe.

Infuse your organization with a distinct personality and culture that draws customers in a way that simply competing on price cannot.

Joe Coulombe founded what would become Trader Joe’s in the late 1960s and helped shape it into the beloved, quirky food chain it is today. Realizing early on that he could not compete and win by playing the same game his bigger competitors were playing, he decided to build a store for educated people of somewhat modest means. He brought in unusual products from around the world and promoted them in the Fearless Flyer, providing customers with background on how they were sourced and their nutritional value. He also gave the stores a tiki theme to reinforce the exotic trader ship concept with employees wearing Hawaiian shirts.

In this way, Joe laid down a blueprint for other business owners to follow to build their own unique shopping experience that customers love, and a work environment that employees love being a part of.

In Becoming Trader Joe, Joe shares the lessons he learned by challenging the status quo and rethinking the way a business operates. He shows readers of all types:

  • How moving from a pure analytical approach to a more creative, problem-solving approach can drive innovation.
  • How finding an affluent niche of passionate customers can be a better strategy than competing on price and volume.
  • How questioning all aspects of the way you do business leads to powerful results.
  • How to build a business around your values and identity.
  •

    代理商:大苹果 THE DECLINE AND FALL OF THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE
    《奥斯曼帝国的衰落》
    by ALAN PALMER
    亚马逊评级: 亚马逊评级 页数:332    定价:美元   上传日期:2021-6-23
    < /td>
    英文概要: Like Charles II, the sick man of Europe was ’an unconscionable time dying.’ Time and time again from the seventeenth century observers predicted the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, yet it outlived all its rivals. As late as 1910 it straddled three continents. Unlike the Romanovs, Hohenzollerns or Habsburgs, the House of Osman was still recognised as an imperial dynasty during the peacemaking which followed the First World War. This book offers a fascinating overview of the Ottoman Empire’s decline from the failure to take Vienna in 1683 to the abolition of the Sultanate in 1922 by Mustafa Kemal, after a revolutionary upsurge of Turkish national pride. It deals with constantly recurring problems: competing secular and religious authority; acceptance or rejection of Western ideas; greedy neighbours; population movements; and the strength or weakness of successive Sultans. The book also emphasises the challenges of the early twentieth century, when railways and oilfields gave new importance to Ottoman lands in the Middle East. Recent events have put the problems that faced the later Sultans back upon the world agenda. Names like Basra and Mosul again make the headlines. So, too, do the old empire’s outposts in Albania and Macedonia in the west and the mountainous Caucasus in the east. Alan Palmer’s narrative reminds us of the long, sad continuity of conflict in the Lebanon. We read of the Kurdish struggle for survival, of Armenian aspirations for independence, of the lingering interests of the Ottomans in their Libyan provinces, and of the Muslim character of Sarajevo in the troubled country that was once Yugoslavia. The Ottoman past has great relevance to the changing patterns of eastern Europe and western Asia in the twentieth century. 
     
    中文概要:
    作者介绍: Alan Palmer was head of History at Highgate School, London for nineteen years before retiring early to concentrate on historical writing and research.

He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in 1980.

    Of Alan Palmer, Sir John Keegan has written, ’ Alan Palmer writes the sort of history that dons did before ’’accessible’’ became an academic insult. It is cool, rational, scholarly, literate.’

    by ELANA D. BUCH
    亚马逊评级: 亚马逊评级 页数:288    定价:美元   上传日期:2021-6-5
    < /td>
    英文概要: Winner, 2020 Eileen Basker Memorial Prize, given by the Society for Medical Anthropology

    The troubling dynamic of the American home care industry where increased independence for the elderly conflicts with the well being of caregivers

    Paid home care is one of the fastest growing occupations in the United States, and millions of Americans rely on these workers to help them remain at home as they grow older. However, the industry is rife with contradictions. The United States spends a fortune on medical care, yet devotes comparatively few resources on improving wages, thus placing home care providers in the ranks of the working poor. As a result, the work that enables some older Americans to live independently generates profound social inequalities.

    Inequalities of Aging explores the ways in which these inequalities play out on the ground as workers, who are disproportionately women of color and immigrants, earn poverty-level wages and often struggle to provide for themselves and their families. The ethnographic narrative reveals how two of the nation’s most pressing concerns―rising social inequality and caring for an aging population―intersect to transform the lives of older adults, home care workers, and the world around them.

    The book takes readers inside the homes and offices of people connected to two Chicago area home care agencies serving low-income and affluent older adults, respectively. Through intimate portrayals of daily life, Elana D. Buch illustrates how diverse histories, care practices, and social policies overlap and contribute to social inequality.

    Illuminating the lived experience of both workers and their clients, Inequalities of Aging shows the different ways in which the idea of independence both connects and shapes the lives of the elderly and the working poor.

    代理商:大苹果 AUTOMATION AND THE FUTURE OF WORK
    《自動化和勞動的未來:關於自動化技術及其對勞動場域和勞動力市場影響的思考與批判》
    by AARON BENANAV
    页数:160    定价:美元   上传日期:2021-6-4
    < /td>
    简体版权:已有出版社报价,正在交易中...
    英文概要: A consensus-shattering account of automation technologies and their effect on workplaces and the labor market

    Silicon Valley titans, politicians, techno-futurists and social critics have united in arguing that we are living on the cusp of an era of rapid technological automation, heralding the end of work as we know it. But does the much-discussed “rise of the robots” really explain the jobs crisis that awaits us on the other side of the coronavirus?

    In Automation and the Future of Work, Aaron Benanav uncovers the structural economic trends that will shape our working lives far into the future. What social movements, he asks, are required to propel us into post-scarcity, if technological innovation alone can’t deliver it? In response to calls for a universal basic income that would maintain a growing army of redundant workers, he offers a counter-proposal.  

     
    中文概要: 矽谷巨頭、政治家、科技未來主義者和社會評論家一致認為,我們正生活在一個自動化技術快速崛起的時代,這預示著人力勞動即將迎來終結。但是,這一波廣受討論的「機器人崛起」真的能解釋在後疫情時代等待著我們的就業危機嗎?

    在本書中,Aaron Benanav揭示了將塑造我們未來工作生活的結構性經濟趨勢。他問道,如果僅靠技術創新還不夠,還需要哪些社會運動,才能真正推動我們進入後匱乏(post-scarcity)社會的理想?當全世界都在呼籲維持全民基本收入的重要性,而該措施仍將使冗員勞動者持續增加時,本書作者提出了另一個不同的選項。

    註:後匱乏(post-scarcity)是一種迄今為止還未實現的社會。在這種社會裡,商品、服務、資訊都可以被人們無償占有,貨幣也將不復存在。人們之所以能這麼做,是由於在後匱乏社會裡,物質、能量、資訊都大量的存在,並且存在自動系統,使人們不需要付出任何勞動即可獲取日常用品和其它產品。 (Zoe)

    作者介绍: Aaron Benanav 是柏林洪堡大學的研究員。 他之前曾在芝加哥大學任教,並為《衛報》和《新左派評論》撰稿。

    Aaron Benanav is a Researcher at Humboldt University of Berlin. He previously taught at the University of Chicago and has written for the Guardian and New Left Review.

    英文概要: Yumiko Kadota was every Asian parent’s dream: model student, top of her class in medical school and on track to becoming a surgeon. A self-confessed workaholic, she regularly put ‘knife before life’, knowing it was all going to be worth it because it would lead to her longed-for career.
    But if the punishing hours in surgery weren’t hard enough, she also faced challenges as a young female surgeon navigating a male-dominated specialty. She was regularly left to carry out complex procedures without senior surgeons’ oversight; she was called all sorts of things, from ‘emotional’ to ‘too confident’; and she was expected to work a relentless on-call roster – sometimes seventy hours a week or more – to prove herself.

    英文概要: A compelling history of the turbulent journey to Irish independence, published for the centenary of the Partition

    In the aftermath of the horrors of the Irish Famine, the grim, distrustful relationship between Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom deteriorated into a generations-long argument about ’Home Rule’. The unprecedented nature of the Irish problem - with most Irish people wanting to break away from the world’s largest Empire - made it extraordinarily difficult for either side to come up with a compromise. For many years actual independence seemed inconceivable. And then, as these bitter disputes continued, it became clear that under no circumstances would the Protestants be party to any of it.

    The Partition is a remarkable, clear-sighted and thoughtful account of how two unthinkable events - full Irish independence and the creation of the state of Northern Ireland - came to pass. The Irish nationalist claim to leave ran into a loyalist demand to remain, increasingly centred on the north-eastern Protestant community, threatening large-scale violent resistance.

    Here Charles Townshend lays out what is ultimately a tragic story, as partition became the only answer to an otherwise insoluble problem. The settlement of the Irish question drew in every major politician, conjured up heroes and villains, led to civil war and finally to Ulster’s catastrophic Troubles. The hard border has always been seen as a failure of both British and Irish statecraft, but has endured now for a century. The Partition brilliantly brings to life the contingency and uncertainty that created it.

It includes a new section in which patients ask questions not addressed in previous editions, and the author provides concrete strategies for earning trust and forgiveness.
