Renowned for decades as the worldÕs foremost railroad artist, Howard FoggÕs career spanned half a century and some twelve hundred paintings. However, while his art has been welcomed for decades, few of his enthusiasts have been aware of his prior career, as a fighter pilot in the U.S. 8th Air Force during World War II. Fortunately Fogg left behind a detailed diary of his experiences, which illuminate this brief but exciting aspect of his life, as he engaged in direct combat with the Luftwaffe at the controls of a P-47 Thunderbolt and P-51 Mustangs. Articulate and insightful, his diary offers a frank and fascinating glimpse into the life of a fighter pilot, both in the sky and in wartime England. Written during 1943 and 1944 it offers a confidential perspective of life as a Òflyboy,Ó during which Howard flew 76 combat missions and was awarded the Air Medal with three clusters and the Distinguished Flying Cross with one cluster. Presented in its entirety, with supplementary material by Richard and Janet Fogg, and supporting illustrations from Fogg himself, including satirical cartoons, military and railroad artwork, Fogg in the Cockpit paints with a broad brush, from the smallest details of a pilotÕs day-to-day existence. to air combat, and the strategic and political decisions that influenced the course of the war.

Inspired by Jules Verne’s classic adventure tale, celebrated editor-in-chief of The Wine Economist Mike Veseth takes his readers Around the World in Eighty Wines. The journey starts in London, Phileas Fogg’s home base, and follows Fogg’s itinerary to France and Italy before veering off in search of compelling wine stories in Syria, Georgia, and Lebanon. Every glass of wine tells a story, and so each of the eighty wines must tell an important tale. We head back across Northern Africa to Algeria, once the world’s leading wine exporter, before hopping across the sea to Spain and Portugal. We follow Portuguese trade routes to Madeira and then South Africa with a short detour to taste Kenya’s most famous Pinot Noir. Kenya? Pinot Noir? Really! The route loops around, visiting Bali, Thailand, and India before heading north to China to visit Shangri-La. Shangri-La? Does that even exist? It does, and there is wine there. Then it is off to Australia, with a detour in Tasmania, which is so cool that it is hot. The stars of the Southern Cross (and the title of a familiar song) guide us to New Zealand, Chile, and Argentina. We ride a wine train in California and rendezvous with Planet Riesling in Seattle before getting into fast cars for a race across North America, collecting more wine as we go. Pause for lunch in Virginia to honor Thomas Jefferson, then it’s time to jet back to London to tally our wines and see what we have learned. Why these particular places? What are the eighty wines and what do they reveal? And what is the surprise plot twist that guarantees a happy ending for every wine lover? Come with us on a journey of discovery that will inspire, inform, and entertain anyone who loves travel, adventure, or wine.

Sisters Kathleen and Josie Colby are alone in the boomtown of Skagway, newly arrived and penniless amid the violence and greed of the gold miners and those who prey upon them. The gold rush of 1899 has transformed Alaska into the favored destination for all the dreamers and desperadoes of the world. Kathleen and Josie did not venture to Alaska to make their fortunes with a sudden gold strike. They have come seeking their father, but they learn that he is already dead. Their mother also dies by violence in Skagway, killed by a stray bullet intended for a different victim. Strong and spirited Kathleen will do anything to protect her helpless sister Josie, a quadriplegic who seems to most people to be completely unable to communicate. Kathleen believes that Josie is perfectly aware of everything that goes on around her, and that she can communicate with anyone who pays attention, though she cannot make herself understood with ordinary words. When it appears that her sister will be placed in an asylum, Kathleen turns to a handsome and plausible man for help. He tells her that he will soon marry her and help her care for her sister, and she believes him. But he is not to be trusted. In a drunken rage, he assaults her and leaves her bleeding on the muddy streets of Skagway. Kathleen will need all her strength and courage to heal and to go on. She is resolved to take her sister home, or to such a home as they have, to their father's family in New York City. Yet to reach New York will be a difficult and dangerous adventure. Their journey will change Kathleen from a naive and impulsive young woman to someone with the knowledge and understanding to take on the Old West amid the growing pangs of a new century. Sam Winslow turns up to help Kathleen and Josie as they travel. He is a quietly spiritual man, someone who holds beliefs that Kathleen can scarcely credit. Yet sometimes she feels that she nearly understands him, that she comes close to sharing the spiritual experiences that give meaning to his life. Sam treats Josie with respect and understanding and shows Kathleen as much tenderness as she will allow. He is a man of many secrets, a man who seems to share his feelings as scantily as Kathleen now shares her own. She tries to leave him behind more than once, but still she senses something between them, something unspoken. He confuses Kathleen, driving her away as he attracts her. She knows that she cannot trust another supposed rescuer, that she alone must rescue herself. She is sure that she must learn to stand on her own legs before she can build a relationship with any man. She is drawn to this strange and passionate man, yet she has her goals and her responsibilities. A man in her life would only be a distraction, she tells herself. Perhaps the brutal assault she endured in Skagway has closed off her heart to the possibility of faith in someone else. Can she someday learn to trust again--and begin to learn to love?

Decades of research have demonstrated that the parent-child dyad and the environment of the familyâ€"which includes all primary caregiversâ€"are at the foundation of children’s well- being and healthy development. From birth, children are learning and rely on parents and the other caregivers in their lives to protect and care for them. The impact of parents may never be greater than during the earliest years of life, when a child’s brain is rapidly developing and when nearly all of her or his experiences are created and shaped by parents and the family environment. Parents help children build and refine their knowledge and skills, charting a trajectory for their health and well-being during childhood and beyond. The experience of parenting also impacts parents themselves. For instance, parenting can enrich and give focus to parents’ lives; generate stress or calm; and create any number of emotions, including feelings of happiness, sadness, fulfillment, and anger. Parenting of young children today takes place in the context of significant ongoing developments. These include: a rapidly growing body of science on early childhood, increases in funding for programs and services for families, changing demographics of the U.S. population, and greater diversity of family structure. Additionally, parenting is increasingly being shaped by technology and increased access to information about parenting. Parenting Matters identifies parenting knowledge, attitudes, and practices associated with positive developmental outcomes in children ages 0-8; universal/preventive and targeted strategies used in a variety of settings that have been effective with parents of young children and that support the identified knowledge, attitudes, and practices; and barriers to and facilitators for parents’ use of practices that lead to healthy child outcomes as well as their participation in effective programs and services. This report makes recommendations directed at an array of stakeholders, for promoting the wide-scale adoption of effective programs and services for parents and on areas that warrant further research to inform policy and practice. It is meant to serve as a roadmap for the future of parenting policy, research, and practice in the United States.
