The No-Salt, Lowest-Sodium Cookbook: Hundreds of Favorite Recipes Created to Combat Congestive Heart Failure and Dangerous Hypertension
Donald A. Gazzaniga
0312291647
July 2002
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Even though it's a cookbook, this work reads like high drama: Gazzaniga suffered from heart failure, a condition that can in some cases necessitate a heart transplant; but because he successfully controlled his salt and sodium intake, he has restored his health. Gazzaniga realized that he'd first have to adapt his tastes and cravings to new flavors and textures. Cream, soy sauce, ketchup and commercial breads were just a few things that had to be eliminated, but as he avers, "All is not lost." Gazzaniga bakes all his own breads with a lowest-sodium baking powder, buys no-salt canned goods from the health-food store and has even found an acceptable no-salt ketchup. It may take some extra planning and shopping, but, he promises, readers will find his wide-ranging recipes (Chicken in Almond Sauce, Scampi in Wine,...


The Mathematics of Plato's Academy
David H. Fowler
0198502583
Jan 1999
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
This is an updated edition of a groundbreaking examination of early Greek mathematics. The author has revised parts of the text, updated the bibliography, and added a new Appendix where he takes a strong position in the continuing debate about the nature and range of classical mathematics. The
first part presents several new interpretations of the idea of ratio in early Greek mathematics and illustrates these in detailed discussions of several texts. Part Two then focuses on the sources themselves and provides a critical look at our knowledge of Plato's Academy during his lifetime, at the
source of our text of Euclid's Elements, and at our understanding of early Greek mathematics. The final part contrasts some of the evidence from early and late antiquity and then gives a historical account, beginning in the...


Remembering Blue

From Publishers Weekly
When starry-eyed Matilda Fiona O'Roarke (Mattie) meets burly, romantic Proteus Nicholas Blue (Nick), she's a clerk at a Tallahassee convenience store and he's working for a logging firm. He tells her he comes from a long line of rugged Greek-American fishermen who believe they're descended from dolphins and, as such, are destined to die at sea. Nick hopes to thwart fate, but when a fellow logger is killed on the job, Nick realizes that land is just as dangerous as water and returns with Mattie to his home on Lethe, the Florida coastal island his forebears settled. Initially, Mattie finds the extroverted Blue clan overwhelming, but her shyness disappears when Nick's widowed mother takes her under her wing. Soon Mattie is a fishmonger like Nick, and she learns more about the Blue family's heritage and their belief...

Strong Arts, Strong Schools: The Promising Potential and Shortsighted Disregard of the Arts in American Schooling
Charles B. Fowler
0195148339
January 2002
Textbook Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Education, like so many other aspects of our society, is defined more and more narrowly in terms of economics. As school budgets are slashed, arts programs are all too often judged expendable, as though creative writing, music, the visual arts, media, dance, and theater are somehow frivolous or, worse, suspect or decadent. Fowler, a music educator and arts activist, explains--explicitly, forcefully, and convincingly--why the arts are, in fact, crucial not only to education but to the health of society as a whole. The arts help us understand our experiences; they teach compassion and empathy and inspire creative and critical thinking. Fowler provides numerous examples that substantiate these claims, then reminds us of all the students that public schools fail. It is often the case that arts classes offer children the only...

Glen Canyon

Aug 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Today, thousands of people visit Lake Powell to boat, water ski, camp, and photograph beautiful coves and canyons. But underneath the Lake lies valuable cultural and geologic records that would have been lost to us without the efforts of a massive salvage operation. In 1956, Congress passed legislation that provided authorization and funds for emergency research to be conducted in Glen Canyon in response to the threat of losses posed by the construction of the Glen Canyon Dam in Northern Arizona. For eight years, scientists worked against the clock to record the archaeology, history, geology, and paleontology of the region before the waters of Lake Powell covered the area. In this interpretive summary, Jesse Jennings preserves the achievements of the salvage team and explains how the finds affected previous...

A Man with No Talents: Memoirs of a Tokyo Day Laborer
Oyama Shiro
080144375X
August 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
In Tokyo's San'ya district, day laborers live in crowded, smelly bunkhouses (doya) and rise early each morning to visit the San'ya Welfare Recruiting Office, where the competition is fierce for backbreaking work that pays paltry wages. Oyama (a pseudonym), a college graduate who dropped out of the corporate world at age 40, lived in San'ya for 12 years, six of them during the 1980s "bubble economy" and six after its collapse. At some point, he began writing down his experiences, and submitted his manuscript to a competition "as a lark." He won, but declined to attend the award ceremony, and continues to live on the streets of Tokyo, albeit in a different neighborhood. He has a self-described "inability to interact with other people," and translator Fowler acknowledges that even among day laborers, Oyama is...

The Commandos at Dieppe: Rehearsal for D-Day
William Fowler
0007111266
October 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
A gripping account of one of the most daring Commando raids of the Second World War.

From the Publisher
History’s overriding view of the 1942 Dieppe raid is that of a catastrophe, with thousands of Canadian and British troops killed or captured. Often overlooked is No. 4 Commando’s successful mission to disable the heavy German guns that threatened the supporting ships at sea. No. 4 Commando’s training and preparation for their part in the raid was an excellent example of operational planning, and its leadership was superb. Quite apart from this first use of Commandos, the raid was also the first instance in which U.S. troops fired shots at their European enemy. Drawing on official records as well as interviews with surviving members of the No. 4 Commando,...

The Algorithmic Beauty of Sea Shells
Hans Meinhardt
3540440100
Jan 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The patterns on the shells of tropical sea snails are not only compellingly beautiful but also tell a tale of biological development. The decorative patterns are records of their own genesis, which follows laws like those of dune formation or the spread of a flu epidemic. Hans Meinhardt has analyzed the dynamical processes that form these patterns and retraced them faithfully in computer simulations. His book is exciting not only for the astonishing scientific knowledge it reveals but also for its fascinating pictures. An accompanying CD-ROM with the corresponding algorithms offers wide scope to those who wish to try their hand at simulating and varying the patterns.
