The frogs and the crickets must come to an agreementand they do, just in time for Tads legs to ...grow in. He better be careful, though; the local farm boy loves eating frog legs! Tads best friend is Susie, and he likes to pick on her a lot. Together, they eat Fly Pie and drink spider juice. They play with other frogs along the shore of the pond, exploring dead logs and climbing new trees. They even make frog angels in the slimy mud. One day, though, Tad notices something different. The air seems a bit chillier than usual. His pa takes him into the forest and explains that frogs hide in the woods when the weather gets cold. Together, Tad, his family, and his friends prepare their hidden nests and build up cozy places to stay. Susie is always close by, and as winter descends, its exciting to think that one day, Tad wont share his den with Ma and Pa but, instead, alone with his best pal Susie.

              Leah James, an assistant marketing director for a professional basketball team, is in love with Josh Kennedy, one of the team's star players. Unfortunately, she has no idea he has made a pact with the devil-and that she is about to suffer the consequences for it. After Leah's bod...y is found lying among the washed-up trash of the river, detective Joe James wants nothing more than to catch the animals who took his daughter from him. Known as a legend on the Philadelphia police force, Joe sets out on a dangerous journey as he attempts to discover what or who caused her to be unwillingly tattooed, suffer sexual trauma, and subsequently drown. As he slowly begins to uncover a nest of illegal syndicates, game fixing, and deadly coercion in the world of professional basketball, Joe summons the help of a well-respected rookie player, a conflicted tattoo artist, and a quirky Las Vegas bookie to avenge Leah's murder. But what they find in the process will surprise all of them. A Slam Dunk shares the compelling tale of what happens when money, power, and brutality become intimately acquainted in a world where professional athletes want nothing more than to get away with murder.

              A Cushing's Collection: A Humorous Journey Surviving Cushing's Disease, Diabetes Insipidus, and a Bilateral Adrenalectomy (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Diagnosed with a rare disease that only affects between two and ten people per million, Marie Conley used emails to communicate with family, friends, and co-workers to keep them apprised of the diagnosis and prognosis of Cushing's disease and the many complications she experience...d on this journey. Her ironic humor and raw, emotional approach helps bring hope to those touched by this rare and unrelenting disease. In her mid-thirties, Conley, who strived to keep herself healthy while maintaining the delicate balance of raising a young child, keeping a home, and a demanding career, began to experience a variety of unexplained maladies inconsistent with her life style. Because of the elusive nature of Cushing's disease, the treatment is a long and complicated process of trial and error. At this time, there is no cure, largely due to the fact that Cushing's disease is considered an orphan disease. As is her nature, she has decided to adopt this orphan and is doing everything she can to bring awareness to this disease. Conley's tenacious spirit and determination would not allow this insidious disease to triumph over her life. Armed with her laptop as the only weapon available in the sterility of the recovery room, the author attacks the keyboard with a vengeance to let friends and family know that in this battle, there is no surrender.

              A Book of Liberian Parables: Wise Sayings and Their Simple Interpretations presents a beautiful compilation of brief parables and wise sayings gleaned from the oral culture of Liberians. Using simple stories about life in everyday circumstances, each parable illustrates a wise mo...ral for guiding one's life. In a few spots, lists of short aphorisms present expressions that offer insights for walking with one's neighbors and family along peaceful pathways. One maxim, for instance, observes, We can all sing together, but we can't all talk together, meaning, Talk one at a time to understand each other. In gathering, arranging, and sharing these cultural treasures, Lulu V. Marshall has crafted a work that invites readers of all ages to enjoy these cultural treasures either alone or by sharing with others. Because the collection avoids any strong or foul language, the readings are good for young and old alike. If you enjoy learning about other locales by absorbing what people who live in those cultures find most memorable and desire to tell others or if you seek wise guidance for your life, then A Book of Liberian Parables will meet your needs with wit, whimsy, and wisdom.

The questions focus on a wide range of areas, such as religious beliefs, career aspirations, views about money and parenting, and even the small things that aren't really all that small. Some of them are questions people forget to ask, while others are those they never think to ask.Don't gamble with something as important and holy as marriage. Find happiness and glorify God with the right person by your side by asking important questions.

              Essays in Interactionist Sociology
                

              Essays in Interactionist Sociology (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Essays in Interactionist Sociology contains a selection of contributions, spanning five decades, that advance the theory, organization, and research of the interactionist tradition. Harvey A. Farberman, professor emeritus of social welfare policy at Stony Brook University, wrote ...the fourteen essays, twelve of which were published in academic journals or annuals and two that are original to this volume. Each one focuses on some aspect of the theory of symbolic interactionist sociology, the professional and organizational development of the interactionist perspective, or empirical studies inspired by the perspective. The author highlights the emergence of the perspective from the philosophy of American Pragmatism, paying particular attention to the contributions of Charles Sanders Peirce and William James. He also examines what may be called refractions of the perspective. The latter part of the book contains four studies. Personalization in Lower Class Consumer Interactions; A Criminogenic Market Structure: The Automobile Industry; Fantasy in Everyday Life: The Intersection of Social Psychology and Political Economy; and Family Caregiving to Elders in New York State. In many ways, the essays in this volume contribute to and reflect the development of interactionist sociology as it grew from an American innovation to a robust, international social science discipline.
