How to Build a Cathedral Malcolm Hislop 2012 Gothic cathedrals are monuments to God, witnesses to the historic power of the Church, and symbols of the faith of the thousands of believers who contributed to their creation. They are also astonishing feats of construction and engineering, from a period before steel-making, machine tools and computer simulation; breathtaking in their scale and grandeur even hundreds of years after the religious impulse that produced them has largely faded away. How to Build a Cathedral is a visual exploration of the building of these masterpieces, from the initial groundplan to the topping out of the spire. Illustrated throughout with beautiful engravings, it looks at each element of the structure in turn, explaining the process of construction and the methods that were used. At intervals though the book, special gatefold pages offer a detailed snapshot of the evolution of the building as it rises into the heavens. A 16-page colour section allows for appreciation of stained glass and decorative stonework. With text written by a leading architectural historian, How to Build a Cathedral is an illuminating portrait of the genius of the medieval architect.

The Handbook of Ordinary Heroes Jigme Rinpoche 2019-09-03 Buddhism is said to be universal because it transcends all notions of time and culture. A French shepherd from the Middle Ages can apply it just as easily as a Singaporean businessman from the twenty-first century. The Buddha's teachings offer a method for understanding how to be and how to act--in other words, how to live our humanity while taking care of ourselves and others. The heroes referred to in this book are ordinary beings like us who choose to develop as individuals through their understanding and application of kindness and compassion. These heroes are bodhisattvas who wish for all beings to meet with lasting happiness and to experience protection from all causes for unhappiness. This handbook provides accessible explanations of what it means to live like a bodhisattva and offers a series of simple exercises directly related to daily life. It gives us key points for facing the difficulties we encounter in a new way and perceiving our lives according to altruistic values. Born in Tibet in 1949, Lama Jigme Rinpoche grew up and received his education with the principal teachers of the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. The Sixteenth Karmapa named Lama Jigme Rinpoche as his official representative and the spiritual director of Dhagpo Kagyu Ling in France. Ever since, Lama Jigme Rinpoche has filled this role. Strengthened by many years of experience in the West, his unique and modern approach renders the Buddha's millennia-old wisdom accessible and allows students to apply it concretely in daily twenty-first- century life.

The Checkout Girl Susan Zettell 2008 It's 1970, and the optimism of Trudeaumania is starting to give way to fears of wage and price controls. In Varnum, Ontario, where the smell of industry is the smell of money, a lot of that money's heading south, just like Bobby Orr. The Checkout Girl is the story of Kathy Rausch, whose life these days is something that just seems to happen to her. After sneaking out on her boyfriend in Vancouver, Kathy moves back to Varnum and hides out in the basement of her high school buddy, Penny Lehman, in a room she shares with Penny's skittish boa constrictor, Freddie. When Kathy isn't checking out groceries, she practices hockey drills. And when she isn't practicing, she's warding off advances from fellow basement dweller "Little" Barry Bender, ignoring her well-meaning mother Connie, hanging out with her best friend, champion baton twirler Darlyn Smola, and dealing a bit of marijuana for Penny's husband Pete. But when Kathy stumbles upon a brutal murder she is finally driven to put her hockey stick where her heart is: on the ice.

Rules for Reformers Douglas Wilson 2014-12-02 In Rules for Reformers, Douglas Wilson poaches the political craft of radical progressives and applies it to Christian efforts in the current culture war. The result is a spicy blend of combat manual and cultural manifesto. Rules for Reformers is a little bit proclamation of grace, a little bit Art of War, and a little bit analysis of past embarrassments and current cowardice, all mixed together with a bunch of advanced knife-fighting techniques. As motivating as it is provocative, Rules for Reformers is just plain good to read. Thanks to Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals: A Practical Primer for Realistic Radicals--a book well-beloved by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and many others--for much of the shrewd advice, and for none of the worldview.

Organizations and Unusual Routines Ronald E. Rice 2010-10-07 Everyone working in and with organizations will, from time to time, experience frustrations and problems when trying to accomplish tasks that are a required part of their role. This is an unusual routine - a recurrent interaction pattern in which someone encounters a problem when trying to accomplish normal activities by following standard organizational procedures and then becomes enmeshed in wasteful and even harmful subroutines while trying to resolve the initial problem. They are unusual because they are not intended or beneficial, and because they are generally pervasive but individually infrequent. They are routines because they become systematic as well as embedded in ordinary functions. Using a wide range of case studies and interdisciplinary research, this book provides researchers and practitioners with a new vocabulary for identifying, understanding, and dealing with this pervasive organizational phenomenon, in order to improve worker and customer satisfaction as well as organizational performance.
Lost Boston Jane Holtz Kay 2006 At once a fascinating narrative and a visual delight, Lost Boston brings the city's past to life. This updated edition includes a new section illustrating the latest gains and losses in the struggle to preserve Boston 's architectural heritage. With an engaging text and more than 350 seldom-seen photographs and prints, Lost Boston offers a chance to see the city as it once was, revealing architectural gems lost long ago. An eminently readable history of the city's physical development, the book also makes an eloquent appeal for its preservation. Jane Holtz Kay traces the evolution of Boston from the barren, swampy peninsula of colonial times to the booming metropolis of today. In the process, she creates a family album for the city, infusing the text with the flavor and energy that makes Boston distinct. Amid the grand landmarks she finds the telling details of city life: the neon signs, bygone amusement parks, storefronts, and windows plastered with images of campaigning politicians-sights common in their time but even more meaningful in their absence today. Kay also brings to life the people who created Boston-architects like Charles Bulfinch and H. H. Richardson, landscape architect and master park-maker Frederick Law Olmsted, and such colorful political figures as Mayors John Honey Fitz Fitzgerald and James Michael Curley. The new epilogue brings Boston's story to the end of the twentieth century, showing elements of the city's architecture that were lost in recent years as well as those that were saved and others threatened as the city continues to evolve.

Plain Roots Becki Willis 2018-11 Taryn Clark thought she'd outgrown the need to find her birth mother. She thought that a successful career and a comfortable life in the city were enough to be happy. Did she really need to know about the woman who had given her away? Adopted at birth, her first few years were happy. It hadn't mattered that she didn't know her heritage; she had parents who loved her and wanted her. But divorce, and then death, ripped their tiny family apart, and at the tender age of six, she entered the foster care system. Over the next dozen years, she shuffled from home to home. Finding her roots seemed an impossible dream. But dreams are resilient. An unexpected discovery awakens old yearnings of belonging to a family, of being part of something bigger than herself. Finding the brief, ambiguous note from her birth mother is enough to unfurl the ribbons of hope still binding her heart. Her quest takes her to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and the heart of the Plain community. Aided by her unique eye color, a healthy dose of luck, and the private investigator she hires, Taryn finds her birth family easily enough, but finding the truth is another matter. In all her musings, she never imagined a scenario where her mother might be Amish. She never imagined that the fabric of her life might be a patchwork of faith and fear, stitched together with a dark family secret. Taryn is determined to trace her roots, even if it means digging in the mud to do so. Now she's caught in the quicksand of a shocking discovery and the consequences of choices made, almost forty years ago. She'll risk everything to uncover the truth and to claim the family--and the roots--she so desperately craves.
St. Mark's Ettore Vio 2003 This authoritative book is by an expert team of scholars, many of whom have made this field their life's work - Over 250 full-colour photographs, over half of which are full-page images and double-page spreads The Basilica of St. Mark's is the most important church in Venice, and one of the most famous in the world.

It was in support of this power and this authority that the Venetians built and decorated what is perhaps the most magnificent church in Christendom.
New Expressions in Origami Art Meher McArthur 2017-03-07 This origami art book features the work of 25 contemporary master folders who are among the most innovative origami artists working today. They are pushing the boundaries of origami vigorously in new directions in terms of style, scale, materials, subject and scope. This elite group includes: Joel Cooper Erik Demaine and Martin Demaine Paul Jackson Beth Johnson Michael G. LaFosse and Richard L. Alexander Robert J. Lang Linda Mihara Bernie Peyton Richard Sweeney And many more… The stunning photos and brilliant essays in this book demonstrate why origami is now an international art movement—largely through the efforts and artistic genius of a few contemporary masters. The trailblazing efforts of Japanese artist Akira Yoshizawa elevated the paper folding to an art form by showing how subtle shapes and figures could be created from a single sheet of paper though a variety of non-traditional folding techniques. Artists in other parts of the world—including the United States, France, England, China and Scandinavia—took Yoshizawa's cue and pushed these techniques further and further. The result has been the emergence of many new and surprising sculptural forms created through techniques such as wet folding, curved creasing, tessellating and the application of alternative materials besides paper.

Rockefeller Center Samuel Chamberlain 1947
The Book of L G. Rozenberg 2012-12-06 This book is dedicated to Aristid Lindenmayer on the occasion of his 60th birthday on November 17, 1985. Contributions range from mathematics and theoretical computer science to biology. Aristid Lindenmayer introduced language-theoretic models for developmental biology in 1968. Since then the models have been cus tomarily referred to as L systems. Lindenmayer's invention turned out to be one of the most beautiful examples of interdisciplinary science: work in one area (developmental biology) induces most fruitful ideas in other areas (theory of formal languages and automata, and formal power series). As evident from the articles and references in this book, the in terest in L systems is continuously growing. For newcomers the first contact with L systems usually happens via the most basic class of L systems, namely, DOL systems. Here "0" stands for zero context between developing cells. It has been a major typographical problem that printers are unable to distinguish between 0 (zero) and 0 (oh). Thus, DOL was almost always printed with "oh" rather than "zero", and also pronounced that way. However, this misunderstanding turned out to be very fortunate. The wrong spelling "DOL" of "DOL" could be read in the suggestive way: DO L Indeed, hundreds of researchers have followed this suggestion. Some of them appear as contributors to this book. Of the many who could not contribute, we in particular regret the absence of A. Ehrenfeucht, G. Herman and H.A. Maurer whose influence in the theory of L systems has been most significant.
Hello, Crochet Friends! Jonah Larson 2019-07-23 A celebration of the beauty and power of crochet--specifically, the life-changing benefits this fiber art has brought to one extraordinary boy, 11-year-old crocheting prodigy Jonah Larson. As his tens of thousands of crochet friends already know, Jonah can crochet anything, including a cowl that has become his signature piece, bright afghans, intricate doilies, fashionable hats, and stuffed animals. A worldwide audience follows his every stitch. Jonah has won over fifty awards for his work, been featured in leading crochet publications, and is partnering with a major yarn company for the creation of new projects and online tutorials. In short, Jonah has been credited for lighting the crochet community on fire, and he is proud to help spread the word--crochet is anything but a dying art. What Jonah's crochet friends may not already know, and what Jonah would like to share with them and young people everywhere, is that through crochet he is also piecing together a pattern for his life, a pattern that he has now turned into the title of his first book, Hello, Crochet Friends! Making Art, Being Mindful, Giving Back: Do What Makes You Happy. Woven into Jonah's beautifully photographed and detailed autobiography are three important themes: Making Art. Jonah welcomes readers into his process, sharing everything from his preferred crocheting atmosphere--end of sofa, lights dimmed, close to his mom--to his favorite stitches and yarns. How can Jonah crochet so quickly? He writes, "It's like breathing to me." Being Mindful. For many years, school was a place where Jonah, despite excelling academically, kept getting into trouble--sometimes big trouble. Jonah writes, ..".nothing seemed to be working..." to make things better. Nothing, that is, until he discovered crochet. It was an uncommon interest for a kid his age and his gender, but Jonah didn't care. Crocheting calmed his mind and made him happy; and in fifth grade, his teacher invited him to bring his crocheting to school. Now Jonah could pick up a hook and some yarn and "crochet away" any urge to misbehave. Jonah writes, "I quickly noticed something I didn't expect or understand. When I was crocheting, I didn't feel jumpy or jittery. I didn't feel like I needed to do something to get attention. My mind was quiet, calm, and peaceful." Giving Back. Going viral has connected Jonah with new friends around the world, introduced life-changing opportunities, and, importantly to Jonah, created a more significant platform for giving back, including to the community in Ethiopia from which he was adopted. Before Jonah concludes with his bright smile and signature wave, there are fourteen bonus pages celebrating crochet. Jonah offers an introduction to the art, lists his "Favorites," and reveals an exclusive pattern for an identity-inspired dish cloth, one that he hopes that his crochet friends will create (and share!). The sample Jonah provides is crocheted using the colors of the Ethiopian flag--red, yellow, and green. Written with the same confidence, sincerity, and kindness that Jonah's crochet friends will recognize from his online tutorials, Hello, Crochet Friends! offers its readers a celebration of a beautiful and powerful fiber art and another treasure from Jonah's hands.
