英文概要: No more arguing, punishments, or bribes. Help your child get motivated—and watch them soar!

You’re at your wits’ end. Again. Your teen is bright, savvy, and capable—and completely unmotivated. Whether it’s too much screen time, pandemic-induced resignation, or disillusionment at the state of the world, so many kids recently seem to have lost the passion to create, excel, engage, and do. What you need, for them and you, is a teen expert—a fresh voice to ask the right questions, make powerful suggestions, and offer proven techniques for getting your teen back in the game and focused on a future of fulfillment, success, purpose, and enjoyment.

Melanie McNally is that expert, and she’ll help you and your teen conquer whatever’s been keeping them down and holding them back. Presented in simple steps, this book breaks down the three major components of motivation:

- Help your teen ignite their creativity and passion
- Work with your teen to increase their endurance and effort
- Encourage your teen to envision and set worthy and attainable milestones

Small changes can have huge impacts—the kind that inspire confidence, a sense of accomplishment, and the desire to keep going, keep doing, and stay the course. If you’re looking to motivate your teen and set the stage for success and happiness, this book can help you get started today.

英文概要: Every child is born a physical, emotional and spiritual being. As parents and caregivers, it is our role to nurture these qualities and help young people mature into confident embodied adults and responsible custodians of our communities, economies and the Earth. But as the scaffolding of the old world has crumbled, we know that many members of Gen Z are experiencing anxiety, depression, addiction and even suicidality at epidemic levels.

We want our children to grow up in an environment where they feel safe, loved, and can enjoy a deep sense of belonging. The sensitive, the open-hearted and empathetic ones are the most affected and these are the very people we need most in society.

With contributions and timely solutions from leading scientists, doctors, inspirational teachers, visionaries and wisdom holders from varying traditions, the stories of hope in UN:Stuck offer guidance that will help our children mature into confident embodied adults packed with empathy, curiosity and a real sense of playfulness. The chapter titles in this book are rungs on a ladder of hope: Awakened Awareness, Emotional/Ethical intelligence, Interrelatedness (Ukama), Ethical Activism, Meaning & Purpose, Resilience/Courage/Curiosity, Creativity and Inclusion/The Whole Being.

The result is a truly 360° vision of how we can support our young people, based on storytelling and wisdom in a way that reconnects them at a fundamental level with their world and seeds hope for the future.

< /td>
英文概要: This book is a tribute to the free sense of smell in all its beauty and disgust.

It opens with an introduction to the significance of the sense and the adventurous diversity of smells, continuing as a historical journey through the scents of the first ancient cities, medieval plague epidemics, and the industrial revolution up to the present day. In total, it explores twenty different odors, from the smell of blood to the fragrance of a flower meadow, flatulence, money, and garlic.

The sense of smell is associated with the dark, the erotic, the animalistic – the very opposite of modernity and progress. We now live in an almost odorless world where soon, everything will be visual – and only that.

All illustrated with beautiful watercolors by visual artist Anette Rosenberg.

英文概要: Have you ever wondered why you can’t summon the energy to declutter those piles of clothes on the floor? Do you wish you knew what policies your workplace could offer so everyone can think more clearly and feel better at work? Or maybe you’ve felt confused about which ideas even deserve your attention right now? You’re not alone. And if you are ready for a change, this book is for you.

Coming from a public health expert who spent over two decades designing health initiatives around the world, Decluttered is a mindful exploration of how and why clutter manifests in our lives–and what we can do about it. Jenny Albertini invites readers to explore decluttering from personal and empathetic angles while acknowledging how clutter does not only manifest as "stuff" in our homes, but also in our relationships and in our everyday lives.

Blending stories and science with writing prompts and creativity exercises, this book will motivate readers to examine their relationship to their surroundings while reducing clutter for their health, in their homes, in their workplaces, and beyond. Jenny shares her own transformative journey of working in clinics in Africa and training under Marie Kondo, along with inspirational moments with clients from her years as professional organizer.

Decluttered will leave its readers feeling:

• Enlightened about underlying health issues related to clutter;
• Aware of what to prioritize for their decluttering journey; and
• Ready to take tangible steps that improve their work lives, home environments, and relationships.

A refreshing addition to the well-being and home genres, Decluttered helps to reduce shame and supports readers to transform their cluttered lives and spaces into foundations for healthy, balanced and intentional living.

Welcome to your world, decluttered.

by AVI J. SIRLIN
亚马逊评级: 亚马逊评级 页数:350    定价:22.95 美元   上传日期:2024-3-29
< /td>
英文概要: 1858: The Malay Archipelago. In the remote tropics a young British naturalist, Alfred Wallace, toils in obscurity. He collects specimens: beetles, moths, ants and birds that sell for pennies apiece in England.

One night, suffering from fever and hallucination, Wallace solves the greatest mystery of the era: the origin of species. To circulate his discovery, he contacts a distant acquaintance Charles Darwin. Unbeknownst to Wallace, Darwin has been secretly penning a near-identical version of the same evolutionary theory for twenty years. Darwin soon achieves world-renown and Wallace earns, if nothing else, widespread grudging respect. But then Wallace returns to England where his advocacy for ideas ranging from socialism to spiritualism launches him on a collision course with the men at the very heart of the scientific establishment, including Darwin.

The Evolutionist tells of one man’s determination to seek out his own truths in his own unique way and the price he pays. From oppressive jungle to mid-Victorian London, this is a disturbing tale of money, class, faith and discrimination.

中文概要:
作者介绍: Virginia Woolf is a celebrated English writer considered the ’Mother’ of Modernism because of her use of stream of consciousness within her work. She first published ’The Voyage out’ in 1915 and went on to publish several novels, as well as essays and short stories including ’Mrs Dalloway’, ’Orlando’ and ’A Room of One’s Own.’ Charlotte Perkins Gilman was an American humanist, novelist, writer, lecturer, advocate for social reform, and eugenicist. She was a utopian feminist and served as a role model for future generations of feminists because of her unorthodox concepts and lifestyle. She has been inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame. Her best remembered work today is her semi-autobiographical short story "The Yellow Wallpaper", which she wrote after a severe bout of postpartum psychosis. Edith Wharton ( born Edith Newbold Jones; January 24, 1862 – August 11, 1937) was an American novelist, short story writer, and interior designer. Wharton drew upon her insider’s knowledge of the upper-class New York "aristocracy" to realistically portray the lives and morals of the Gilded Age. In 1921, she became the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize in Literature, for her novel The Age of Innocence. She was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame in 1996. Among her other well-known works are The House of Mirth and the novella Ethan Frome.

Zelda Fitzgerald (née Sayre; July 24, 1900 – March 10, 1948) was an American novelist, painter, and socialite.

Born in Montgomery, Alabama, she was noted for her beauty and high spirits, and was dubbed by her husband F. Scott Fitzgerald as "the first American flapper". She and Scott became emblems of the Jazz Age, for which they are still celebrated. The immediate success of Scott’s first novel, This Side of Paradise (1920), brought them into contact with high society, but their marriage was plagued by wild drinking, infidelity and bitter recriminations. Ernest Hemingway, whom Fitzgerald disliked, blamed her for her husband’s declining literary output. Zelda suffered from a mental health crisis and was increasingly confined to specialist clinics. Different accounts suggest that she suffered from schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or alternatively that she was victim of gaslighting by her husband. The couple were living apart when Scott died suddenly in 1940. Zelda Fitzgerald died over seven years later in a fire at the hospital in Asheville, North Carolina, in which she was a patient.

A 1970 biography by Nancy Milford was on the short list of contenders for the Pulitzer Prize. In 1992, Fitzgerald was inducted into the Alabama Women’s Hall of Fame.

by WILHELM SCHMID
页数:141    定价:美元   上传日期:2024-3-28
< /td>
英文概要: Surviving death, how do you do that? This is the immediate challenge for anybody who has to keep on living after having lost someone dear to them. It’s helpful to acquaint yourself with some of the phases you are about to move through. A popular method of surviving death is not to talk about it. In his new book, Wilhelm Schmid tries to do the polar opposite.

Because there is no cure for it: for the time being, death continues to be the end point of life for every human being. The only variations are when and how we die. Usually, death comes too soon and leaves a great deal of suffering in its wake. Can this drama be mitigated by the belief that death is not the end of all life? In his new book, Wilhelm Schmid takes a fresh, in-depth look at questions that have plagued humankind for millennia. Such as: Where does a person go when they leave us? Do they begin a new life? Might there really be life after death? How might we imagine it? And can the mere possibility an afterlife offer us solace?

英文概要: The heartwarming tale of an irrepressible donkey who needed a home―and forever changed a family.
Rachel Anne Ridge was at the end of her rope. The economy had crashed, taking her formerly thriving business along with it. She had been a successful artist, doing work she loved, but now she felt like a failure. How would her family pay their bills? What would the future hold? If only God would somehow let them know that everything was going to be all right . . . and then Flash the donkey showed up.

If there is ever a good time to discover a wounded, frightened, bedraggled donkey standing in your driveway, this wasn’t it. The local sheriff dismissed Flash as “worthless.” But Rachel didn’t believe that, and she couldn’t turn him away. She brought Flash into her struggling family during their darkest hour―and he turned out to be the very thing they needed most. Flash is the true story of their adventures together in learning to love and trust; breaking down whatever fences stood in their way; and finding the strength, confidence, and faith to carry on. Prepare to fall in love with Flash: a quirky, unlikely hero with gigantic ears, a deafening bray, a personality as big as Texas, and a story you’ll never forget.

代理商:大苹果 READY TO DIVE: FIVE DECADES OF ADVENTURE
by CURT NEWPORT
页数:302    定价:29.99 美元   上传日期:2024-3-28
< /td>
英文概要: In Ready to Dive, Curt Newport describes his role in some of the most daring and consequential deep ocean search and recovery operations of our time. Newport was there on the front lines and in the trenches, rigging lift lines, piloting underwater vehicles, and dealing with the carnage following both military and civilian plane crashes. Starting with his life as the son of a US Army aviator during various international postings before covering his conflicts with his father during the turbulent 1960s, the book details how he got into the subsea field. In a career lasting nearly fifty years, probing waters deeper than three miles, Newport describes unwinding passenger clothing from submersible propellers during the Air India salvage, recovering tons of volatile fuel–laden solid rocket motor parts from the Space Shuttle Challenger, thumbing through the wallet of a young girl lost during the crash of TWA Flight 800, and deciphering the navigational mystery of the USS Indianapolis. Ready to Dive is a gritty, blunt, and real firsthand subsea account unlike any other. 
 
中文概要:
作者介绍: Curt Newport retired in 2022 after forty-seven years in the underwater profession. During his work with underwater vehicles, he operated Canadian, US, British, and Norwegian vehicles on an international basis, ranging from the Arctic to the “Roaring Forties,” the Persian Gulf, the North Sea, and both sides of the equator in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Overall, he has participated in over 150 undersea operations in water depths down to 5,500 meters (over 3.4 miles). He has supported numerous undersea operations such as the salvage of Air India Flight 182, the Space Shuttle Challenger, the recovery of Liberty Bell 7, TWA Flight 800, the broadcast of live images from the RMS Titanic, and the USS Indianapolis, as well as many classified missions involving the loss of military aircraft.
