Experience the wild roller coaster ride of a double addiction. It did not involve drugs, alcohol, or any of the other usual suspects, but an addiction to the very unusual combination of composting and farming. It started at a very young age and has lasted over forty years without interruption. Because of the addiction, my health, my family, and my well being never got in the way. It will be a great treat to meet all the wonderful mentors and roll models that was my great pleasure to work with and interact with. These people were all movers and shakers, they were all innovators, and they were all on the cutting edge. They could all handle a tense situation very smoothly whenever it arose, and all should have a book written about each of them. You will get a very close look at what it takes to compost and farm in a big time arena. What it takes as far as machinery, manpower, management, money, and the part mother nature plays in all of this. I could not have been born at a better time or in a better place. An exciting autobiography about a wonderful career and a cast of individuals that I would not trade for anything. They all allowed me to be green was green wasn't cool, and most importantly, to be compost when compost wasn't cool.

Even a global political watershed, such as the end of the Cold War, seems to have left a fundamental characteristic of cultural relations between the US and the rest of the world unchanged: American popular culture still stirs up emotion. American popular culture's products, artifacts, and practices entangle their consumers in affective encounters characterized by feelings of fascination, excitement, or even wholesale rejection. What is it that continues to make 'American' popular culture 'cool?' Which role does 'cool' play in the consumers' affective encounters with 'America?' This volume of essays offers new insights on the post-Cold War dissemination of American popular culture, exploring the manifold ways in which 'cool' has emerged as an elusive, yet determining, factor of an American culture gone global.

In April of ‘93 and March of ‘97 the editors of Western Outdoor News took the California Department of Fish and Game to task for under-reporting mountain lion involvement in disappearances. University of Idaho Statistic Professor Kirk Trigsted conducted Permutation Tests on multiple disappearances in nine different areas of Ca. that clearly rejected that they were random events. In each of the nine all had vanished during time-frames and in areas that could have encompassed the life span and the home range of a single cougar. Letter from Marv Hagedorn Idaho District 20’s representative, “Regarding the information you have been putting together on the Mule Deer herds here in ...SW.[Idaho]. I agree we are selling tags for a product that does not exist and have been doing it for a very long time. Following his only conviction, the author and his receptionists passed polygraph tests disputing the three arresting officer’s testimonies that he was at his shop the day in question, and had individually confessed his guilt to each of them. Moreover Warden Stegall in his affidavit claimed that the author signed the evidence receipt. However the document contains only Donna his receptionist’s signature. Despite the conviction, which focused on bighorn sheep, San Bernardino National Forest’s head wildlife biologist Steve N Loe, giving him the combinations to the areas locked gates authorized the author, on July 30th of ‘92, to survey the San Gabriel Mountain’s Nelson Bighorn populations. California Legislator Bill Leonard after the author forced a rollback in D-14’s hunting dates wrote, “It is commendable that citizens such as yourself feel so strongly that you help bring about actions by government agencies.”

Embrace Leadership to Combat All Forms of Prejudice Is there a “nigger” in you? If you have attempted to avoid and/or escape oppression, been made to feel as if you are a problem, been treated as “lesser than” or even like a criminal, all just because you are different in a given context, then what Dr. J. W. Wiley asserts through the title of this book inescapably applies to you. Through any of our multiple identities—stereotyped, marginalized, or ostracized by our socio-economic class, level of education, gender, disability, age, race, sexual orientation, or religion—we are all potential victims as well as perpetrators of denigrating language and discrimination. Dr. Wiley borrows the agency of nigger, arguably the quintessential, most universally known term of disparagement of those negatively considered the Other, to re-frame the word as no longer just a racial term but one that symbolizes many of the ways we disrespect or bully one another, are inconsiderate of one another, prejudge one another, and internalize our demonization. He defines the word in a way that demonstrates its equivalence to other dysfunctional language (retard, bitch, fag, trailer trash, etc.) that suggests that those so targeted are unworthy of consideration in our society. By creating a conversation around such language, Dr. Wiley challenges us to recognize that, when we give in to our prejudices and stereotypes, the “nigger in you” is what we are apt to see when we encounter those different from ourselves. The author, who is Director of the Center for Diversity, Pluralism, and Inclusion for the State University of New York–Plattsburg, a Lecturer in Philosophy and Interdisciplinary Studies, and president of his own consulting business, engages diversity in a uniquely inclusive way and as inseparable from social justice. By dissecting the offensive language we often use, consciously or unconsciously, Dr. Wiley provokes us to recognize that, since every one of us has multiple identities beyond just the color of our skin, it is virtually impossible for most of us not to have felt the sting of oppression, or the power of privilege that some of those same multiple identities may confer on us. Consequently, it is morally incumbent on us to contest and ultimately transcend oppression wherever we encounter it, to respect the humanity of those different from us, and become allies in the war to protect and advance people’s right to be different. Through personal stories, scholarship, poetry, commentary on current affairs, lyrics, and his experiences as a Black man both rooted in African American culture and the culture of the academy who daily has to navigate and negotiate multiple worlds, Dr. Wiley leads us on a journey toward social justice. In doing so, he empowers us—in whatever sphere, private or public, in which we have some agency—to embrace our leadership moments by engaging those who would perpetrate dysfunctional language or behavior, and help create a world in which differences are respected and validated.

In Bed Stuy, New York, a small misunderstanding can escalate into having a price on your head—even if you’re totally clean. This gritty, triumphant debut that Publishers Weekly calls “a funny and rewarding read” captures the heart and the hardship of life for an urban teen. A lot of the stuff that gives my neighborhood a bad name, I don’t really mess with. The guns and drugs and all that, not really my thing. Nah, not his thing. Ali’s got enough going on, between school and boxing and helping out at home. His best friend Noodles, though. Now there’s a dude looking for trouble—and, somehow, it’s always Ali around to pick up the pieces. But, hey, a guy’s gotta look out for his boys, right? Besides, it’s all small potatoes; it’s not like anyone’s getting hurt. And then there’s Needles. Needles is Noodles’s brother. He’s got a syndrome, and gets these ticks and blurts out the wildest, craziest things. It’s cool, though: everyone on their street knows he doesn’t mean anything by it. Yeah, it’s cool…until Ali and Noodles and Needles find themselves somewhere they never expected to be…somewhere they never should've been—where the people aren’t so friendly, and even less forgiving.
