The aim of this book is to teach new skills on how to construct using imagination as a useful tool to express thoughts directly related to space. It is the idea of making solid shapes that we have not heard of before that can be altered and used to get something else new. In this book you will learn how geometry can be utilized as a process of live action by hand, to resolve any problems that deal with engineering or material construction of things needed on demand. The idea is to save time, money, and space by constructing objects that are in high demand in an efficient manner through models. This book explains a process to explore symmetry in all of its aspects of application.

"More Americans visit art museums annually than attend all major-league sporting events. Yet many come away dissatisfied, because art rarely yields itself to the few seconds most viewers spend on individual works. In a culture of distraction, Slow Art models ways to extend and enrich acts of looking. This study defines a new aesthetic field crossing centuries and mediums, including video, photography, land and installation art, painting, performance, sculpture, and fiction. Also tableaux vivants ("living pictures"), live restagings of artworks. Often dismissed as marginal, the practice is fundamental--poised between motion and stasis, life and art--witness its current flourishing. This history of looking includes Diderot, Emma Hamilton, Oscar Wilde, Jeff Wall, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Andy Warhol, Richard Serra. But rather than a set of objects, slow art names a dynamic relationship that transpires between objects and observers. Slow art enacts tacit contracts between works that have designs on us and beholders who invest in them. Slow art emerged in the 18th century, when cultural acceleration created the need to cushion the pace of social life. Simultaneously, however, secularization closed off traditional means to do so. Slow art offers secular viewers pleasures and consolations that engaging sacred images did in ages of faith. Slow art offers objects their due attention, and offers observers meaningful encounters. Such experiences are available to everybody by practicing the pleasures of lingering. Because such opportunities are not given, Slow Art proposes strategies for artists, artworks, and beholders"--Provided by publisher.

This is Hope compares the outcomes of two human ecologies; one is tragic, the other is full of promise. As Will explains in his Introduction, ‘Our human ecology is the expression of everything we do and is represented by every interaction we have on earth…it consists of the multitude of relationships we have with other people, other species, and our physical environment’. He describes our current human ecology in depth to illustrate how we are living inappropriately, cruelly, and unsustainably. This is obsolete and has been for a long time; it is the cause of our overpopulation, our overconsumption of resources, the poverty of ecosystems and people, and our disregard for the rights of individuals from other species. This is Hope proposes a new human ecology to replace it.

Years ago, while riding in the back of a truck after a school field trip, an eight-year-old boy and three friends talked. On this particularly starry night the center of their discussion focused not on the upcoming soccer game, but on the star filled sky. Who created the stars? God created the stars, they decided. But if God created all, who created God? It was a question that haunted the boy. He gains a sliver of understanding years later. As an adult, while undergoing surgery, he is called by ... a Light. Following the light, he begins to understand more about God, religion, and how the universe is connected to all life. In his fast-paced journey with his guide Gabe, he sees the future and ... the past. He then writes about his near-death experience and invites his friends to review his story and give their opinions. The resulting dialogue is a thought provoking story covering topics as diverse as the “Big Bang” theory, the reality of God, human relationships, string theory and the real meaning of life. In The Secret of God, the Universe, and Life, author Maxwell Wynter melds proven and un-proven current scientific thought with various religious beliefs to create a work of fiction that probes the origins of God. The result is a dialogue and a story of fantasy that questions life, faith, man’s purpose in this world, and whether or not there is something ... after death. Anyone who has ever questioned religion, wondered about life after death, thought about their purpose here, their relationship with others, the existence of God or the relationship between science and religion should find this novel an interesting read.

CEO Alfred Gruenwald is sporting new arm candy—rapper-turned-entrepreneur and Bling! executive editor, the first-name-only Philomena. During the consumer show, Gruenwald’s wife serves Philomena with an alienation of affection lawsuit, but Philomena doesn’t live long enough to make an appearance in court. She’s found dead days later, stuffed in the shipping case that held Anastasia’s decoupage crafts. When Gruenwald makes cash-strapped Anastasia an offer she can’t refuse, she wonders, does he really want to find Philomena’s killer or is he harboring a hidden agenda?
