Poetry. "PORTABLE PLANET is a marvelous book. I've been following Shaffer's work for years and he is on a definitive upward spiral"-Jim Harrison. "Graced by the best from the past, the poet wanders. His poems will take you to places you need to visit"-Steve Sanfield. "Eric Paul Shaffer's poems carry us ever inward and out, where particular stones sprout wings, where solid ground is shaken by the nimble fingers of small gods, and the normal everyday ways of life stay blessedly themselves. These poems are portable, they're the exact same size as the hip pocket of your mind"-John Kain.

It's three years later, and the grandkids are growing... but so are the life challenges they face! Some of them are dealing with the additional issues created by attending junior high and high school. They're playing football and basketball; participating in cheerleading competitions; building castles and dioramas for school projects; attending birthday parties and swim parties; making and revising their Christmas Lists; and generally keeping their parents and grandparents busy, with all of their activities and interests. There are more and more things they need to learn how to do, such as multiplication and division; how to ride a skateboard, or a bike; how to bake cookies; how to swim without touching the bottom of the pool; how to play the guitar; how to compute the tip to leave at a restaurant; how to download games and apps to a new mobile device; and much more. The questions they pose for Papa and Nana are getting more complex, too. Beginning with simpler questions like "Do whales eat people?"; "Can vampires come in the house if they're not invited?"; and "Is that a boy fish, or a girl fish?" they progress to more complex inquiries, such as, "Can animals talk?"; "Do other planets have days, like we do?"; "Do you believe in global warming?"; "What's it like to be an adult?"; "What do you think about the Big Bang?"; and "Do you believe in God?" Whether they're going to the Zoo; hosting a video game party; deciding which music video to watch first; visiting Papa at work; trying to cross a muddy path in the Nature Walk; reading a popular series of books; posting pictures on social media websites; dancing a Zumba workout; or making a Father's Day card, the activities and mishaps recounted in this book may help you to better appreciate the joy, wonder, and beauty of young people-and reinforce your belief in the ultimate and indispensable value of FAMILY.

Architectural projects which expose the hidden contradictions of our everyday reality in a lively yet challenging way. Franois Roche (born in 1961 in Paris) and his partner Stephanie Lavaux (born in 1966 on the Reunion Island) are radical advocates of an architecture which is to be perceived as a tool for increasing critical awareness, as a discipline which provokes thought and inspires the imagination. Their buildings and projects, which include the new art museum in Bangkok and the Glacier Museum in Switzerland, both of which would have been unthinkable without the latest IT methods of design, strive towards designs which are unique and unmistakeable in both function and appearance. Franois Roche is guest professor at the London Bartlett School and the Technical University of Vienna, and has made a name for himself internationally as a pioneer of a new architecture through his lecture activities and his participation in many exhibitions. This monograph is the first complete overview of his workand will be published to coincide with the exhibition "No Standard Architecture" which opens in November at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, where R & Sie...architects are one of the 12 invited architectural firms.

It offers a trove of templates for programs that range from crafts, word games, pop culture, pets, holidays, humor, mysteries, technology, and music. It offers tips and suggestions on how to interact with seniors, including those who may have a variety of physical and cognitive needs. There are also guidelines for working with individuals suffering from dementia. A robust list of further resources is provided. The growing population of seniors presents librarians with new challenges and opportunities, and this book is a valuable guide to navigating and embracing them. • Features program templates with step-by-step instructions guaranteed to save you time • Offers ideas for programs that can be conducted at the library or offsite senior facilities • Provides surefire ideas for working with seniors and technology • Covers segments of the senior population not thoroughly addressed in other professional sources, helping librarians fill in or expand into areas • Includes guidance on working with seniors with dementia or Alzheimer's
