Is it Weird Out There ... . ? by Mike Deupree Summary

Which part of the supermarket vegetable department should be rated "R"? What do you do if you're sitting in the driveway with a lawn mower on your lap when the neighbor's nasty pit bull appears? Should the death penalty be abolished, except for people who drive too slowly in the passing lane? Why do Iowa farmers hide their hogs and daughters every presidential election year? What do Colfax Mingo, Pablo McHorowitz and Marguarita Con-Tequila have in common? Life can throw a lot of questions, situations and decisions at a person, some more serious than others. Columnist Mike Deupree of The Cedar Rapids Gazette has been making observations on many of them for more than 20 years, often evoking a chuckle and from time to time stimulating a thought or two. Collected here are some of those observations, on topics ranging from the ACLU to zoology.

The Iowa Caucuses by John C. Skipper Summary

Smaller in population than several U.S. cities, the state of Iowa has become an unexpected and unparalleled proving ground for would-be presidential candidates. The Iowa caucuses provide a unique brand of retail politics, on the decline in an age of multi-million dollar advertising blitzes. Potential candidates have gone to extraordinary lengths to impress Iowa’s voters, dying their hair, changing their wardrobes, posing—and giving speech after speech. This book chronicles the most important events of each Iowa caucus since 1972 and reveals how the unassuming Midwestern state came to be an unlikely powerhouse in presidential politics.

A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard Summary

A raw and powerful memoir of Jaycee Lee Dugard's own story of being kidnapped as an 11-year-old and held captive for over 18 years On 10 June 1991, eleven-year-old Jaycee Dugard was abducted from a school bus stop within sight of her home in Tahoe, California. It was the last her family and friends saw of her for over eighteen years. On 26 August 2009, Dugard, her daughters, and Phillip Craig Garrido appeared in the office of her kidnapper's parole officer in California. Their unusual behaviour sparked an investigation that led to the positive identification of Jaycee Lee Dugard, living in a tent behind Garrido's home. During her time in captivity, at the age of fourteen and seventeen, she gave birth to two daughters, both fathered by Garrido. Dugard's memoir is written by the 30-year-old herself and covers the period from the time of her abduction in 1991 up until the present. In her stark, utterly honest and unflinching narrative, Jaycee opens up about what she experienced, including how she feels now, a year after being found. Garrido and his wife Nancy have since pleaded guilty to their crimes.

The Sixteenth of June by Maya Lang Summary

A finely observed debut novel that paints a funny, moving, truthful portrayal of a family at a turning point: “A triumph” (Helen Schulman, New York Times bestselling author of This Beautiful Life). Leopold Portman dreams of settling down in Philadelphia’s bucolic suburbs and starting a family with his fiancée, Nora. A talented singer in mourning for her mother, Nora has abandoned a promising opera career and wonders what her destiny holds. Her best friend, Stephen, Leopold’s brother, dithers in his seventh year of graduate school and privately questions Leo and Nora’s relationship. On June 16, 2004, the three are brought together—first for a funeral, then for the Portmans’ annual Bloomsday party. As the long-simmering tensions between them rise, they must confront their pasts and their hopes for the future. Clever, lyrical, and poignant, The Sixteenth of June delves into the frictions and allegiances of friendships, the murky uncertainty of early adulthood, and the yearning to belong. Offering a nod to James Joyce’s Ulysses, this remarkable novel explores the secrets we keep and the lengths we go to for acceptance and love. It is “a perfect book for fans of Jonathan Tropper, Meg Wolitzer, and, yes, James Joyce” (Star Tribune, Minneapolis).

It's a jungle out there - the strange animals of economic organization in agri-food value chains by Gaetano Martino,Konstantinos Karantininis,Stefano Pascucci,Liesbeth Dries,Jean Marie Codron Summary

This book aims to explore the variety in organizational forms that exists in the European agri-food sector, and to identify an appropriate theoretical framework that includes a set of conceptual instruments to analyse this variety. Moreover, this framework should be helpful in the exploration of the relationship between organizations and the regulatory domain. The book focuses on organizational forms under two perspectives. First, it underlines the variety in organizational forms and their internal complexity. Second, it includes a series of case studies from different theoretical perspectives that highlight diversity within the agri-food sector, spanning from the adoption of standards to producer organizations. The book then proposes a conceptual foundation that can help in the design of applied theoretical frameworks to address the variety and the complexity of the organizational modes in agri-food supply systems.

The Shaman Warrior by Gini Graham Scott Summary

THE SHAMAN WARRIOR is a classic book of magic and psychic exploration, much like the series of books by Carlos Castaneda and by Lynn Andrews. The author, a sociologist/anthropologist, first met Michael Fairwell, the shaman teacher she studied with, at a magical encampment, and much of Shaman Warrior consists of her descriptions of expeditions into the wilderness to work with Michael and other members of the group in contacting and communicating with the forces of nature. But she also highlights Michael's teachings of the principles of the shaman warrior way, provided in a series of ten lessons by Michael. These cover such topics as "seeing" into other realities, directing and stepping into dreams, projecting one's consciousness into other places and the future, getting in touch with one's inner voice, meeting one's ally, and working with trance, channeling, and ritual. Author Gini Graham Scott additionally sparks up the book with some of the interpersonal dynamics going on in the group of students she studied with. "Finally, a book which brings Shamanism to ALL people, women as well as men. Long overdue. A great work."-Susan B. White, Cyber-Shaman "Dr. Scott's book is an excellent text in teaching us that every man and every woman is a Star and that each of us has a right to practice our own Magick."-Christopher S. Hyatt, PhD, Magical Blend "Shaman Warrior is an intriguing breakthrough book in the field of magic and psychic exploration, much like the series of books by Carlos Castaneda and by Lynn Andrews The book is definitely an exciting read, and one can see Scott taking her place soon besides Castaneda, Andrews, and others who have been reporting on their continuing experience with modern shamans."-Frances Ling, Magical Blend

The Royal Nonesuch by Glasgow Phillips Summary

“The hipster cultural economy of the dot-com boom is skewered in this hilarious coming-of-age memoir” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Glasgow Phillips published his debut novel Tuscaloosa at the tender age of twenty-four. The results were disastrous: encouraging reviews, translations, a paperback sale, a film option, and a Stegner Fellowship at Stanford. But over the next two years, as Phillips’s second novel unraveled and freelance journalism assignments ended in humiliation, a horrible, secret thought took hold in him: perhaps, just possibly, whatever talent he had was of the kind that would never be more than promise. Washed up as a “real” writer before he was thirty, Phillips went to Los Angeles and formed a company with his best childhood friend Jason McHugh, independent producer of Cannibal! The Musical and Orgazmo. The Royal Nonesuch is the story of Phillips’s rollercoaster ride through the twisted world of underground Hollywood and the funhouse of the Internet during the boom. Phillips builds a hilarious and poignant memoir, in the tradition of Augusten Burroughs and Sean Wilsey, from tales of promise and failure, family and madness, friendship and redemption, fame and infamy, and good old-fashioned hustling. It is a remarkable book; a brilliant portrait of a generation in all its foolish glory. “The best book I’ve read about being in your twenties and trying to figure out what to do with your life . . . Something this funny shouldn’t also be this profound.” —Matt Stone, cocreator of South Park

Dreaming of Eden by S. Thistlethwaite Summary

In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were tempted to take a bite out of an apple that promised them the "knowledge of good and evil." Today, a shiny apple with a bite out of it is the symbol of Apple Computers. The age of the Internet has speeded up human knowledge, and it also provides even more temptation to know more than may be good for us. Americans have been right at the forefront of the digital revolution, and we have felt its unsettling effects in both our religions and our politics. Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite argues that we long to return to the innocence of the Garden of Eden and not be faced with countless digital choices. But returning to the innocence of Eden is dangerous in this modern age and, instead, we can become wiser about the wired world.

Hang in There... Wherever "There" Is by Nicole Roberge Summary

DescriptionThis compelling and poignant memoir tells about the journey through the disease of Anorexia, the recovery process, and all that comes with it-the hurt, hope and humor. After almost dying from the disease, and being neglected by the doctors, the author sought recovery and spent seven weeks at an inpatient facility. In her powerful story, she digs into the depths of Anorexia and describes how her simple diet and exercise program turned into a horrific eating disorder-one that controlled her life and forced her to go to the gym every day for four hours and reduce her diet to only fruit. After almost suffering from a heart attack and amazed that she was still alive, she knew she had to save herself and get treatment. Today, she is a survivor. By telling her story of the disease and recovery process, she not only educates the reader about eating disorders, but also shares with them a secret world unknown to many, and most importantly, that there is hope and recovery is possible.

The Rhetoric of Cool by Jeff Rice Summary

The Rhetoric of Cool: Composition Studies and New Media offers a historical critique of composition studies’ rebirth narrative, using that critique to propose a new rhetoric for new media work. Author Jeff Rice returns to critical moments during the rebirth of composition studies when the discipline chose not to emphasize technology, cultural studies, and visual writing, which are now fundamental to composition studies. Rice redefines these moments in order to invent a new electronic practice. The Rhetoric of Cool addresses the disciplinary claim that composition studies underwent a rebirth in 1963. At that time, three writers reviewed technology, cultural studies, and visual writing outside composition studies and independently used the word cool to describe each position. Starting from these three positions, Rice focuses on chora, appropriation, commutation, juxtaposition, nonlinearity, and imagery—rhetorical gestures conducive to new media work-- to construct the rhetoric of cool. An innovative work that approaches computers and writing issues from historical, critical, theoretical, and practical perspectives, The Rhetoric of Cool challenges current understandings of writing and new media and proposes a rhetorical rather than an instrumental response for teaching writing in new media contexts.

I do not attend stuff sacred rituals because I am a lazy piece of crap. I will say this, though: this book is made up of grim and intrepid societal bush whack of uncanny proportions. There are a lot of good love stories because after all, there wouldnt be anything for anyone without some good old love. As far as this books limits, like Dirt from Hard Time Radio, 89.3 said, as he said it best: this work was put together like a horror movie and thats all it is man; and there it is. Good luck to all.
