المزالج

by ستيفاني كالمينسون

في صَبيحَةِ يَوْمٍ باكِرٍ، وَفي بَلْدَةٍ صَغيرَةٍ ما زالَ أَهْلُها نِيامًا، لَعْلَعَ صَوْتُ صَناديقَ تُفْرِغُها سِتُّ شاحِناتٍ. بَيْنَما كانَتِ الشّاحِناتُ تُغادِرُ المَكانَ، كانَ «سام سِكيبر» يُنادي بِأَعْلى صَوْتِهِ: «كُلُّ ما أَحْتاجُهُ اليَوْمَ هُوَ صُنْدوقانِ اثْنانِ فَقَطْ».

أنا القائد

هَلْ لَعِبْتَ يَوْمًا مُباراةً، وَقُلْتَ لِلْفَريقِ الآخَرِ«أَبْدَعْتُم!» عَلى الرَّغْمِ مِنْ أَنَّكَ خاسِرٌ؟ هَلْ أَمْسَكْتَ يَوْمًا الْبابَ لأَحَدٍ وَراءَكَ؟

E Is For Ethiopia

by Betelhem Abate Ashenafi Gudeta Ataklti Mulu Dama Boru

Ethiopia is one of the oldest civilizations in the world. It lies in East Africa, set in a landscape of mountains and rivers - and the Blue Nile, which flows into the River Nile, rises here in Lake Tana. Our wildlife includes giraffes, elephants, zebras, crocodiles, hyenas, lions and all kinds of beautiful birds. The country is rich in history. It has an important place in both the Christian and Muslim religions, with all kinds of colourful festivals. Thousands of people visit our ancient churches and mosques every year. Ethiopian people follow many different traditions, make music in a variety of ways and speak several different languages. We love to dance, sing and have fun, especially on public holidays! Our food is spicy and delicious. The coffee bean originated in this country, and we hold a special coffee ceremony in which the aroma of roasted coffee, the incense we burn, and the pleasure of meeting each other all make for a unique experience. E is for Ethiopia is the latest in the wide-ranging photographic World Alphabet series. The text and photographs in this book are by a group of young photographers in Ethiopia whose work is supported by the UK aid agency CAFOD, the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development.

Greater Portland: Urban Life and Landscape in the Pacific Northwest

by Carl Abbott

Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Title for 2001<P><P> It has been called one of the nation's most livable regions, ranked among the best managed cities in America, hailed as a top spot to work, and favored as a great place to do business, enjoy the arts, pursue outdoor recreation, and make one's home. Indeed, years of cooperative urban planning between developers and those interested in ecology and habitability have transformed Portland from a provincial western city into an exemplary American metropolis. Its thriving downtown, its strong neighborhoods, and its pioneering efforts at local management have brought a steady procession of journalists, scholars, and civic leaders to investigate the "Portland style" that values dialogue and consensus, treats politics as a civic duty, and assumes that it is possible to work toward public good.Probing behind the press clippings, acclaimed urban historian Carl Abbott examines the character of contemporary Portland--its people, politics, and public life--and the region's history and geography in order to discover how Portland has achieved its reputation as one of the most progressive and livable cities in the United States and to determine whether typical pressures of urban growth are pushing Portland back toward the national norm.In Greater Portland, Abbott argues that the city cannot be understood without reference to its place. Its rivers, hills, and broader regional setting have shaped the economy and the cityscape. Portlanders are Oregonians, Northwesteners, Cascadians; they value their city as much for where it is as for what it is, and this powerful sense of place nurtures a distinctive civic culture. Tracing the ways in which Portlanders have talked and thought about their city, Abbott reveals the tensions between their diverse visions of the future and plans for development.Most citizens of Portland desire a balance between continuity and change, one that supports urban progress but actively monitors its effects on the region's expansive green space and on the community's culture. This strong civic participation in city planning and politics is what gives greater Portland its unique character, a positive setting for class integration, neighborhood revitalization, and civic values. The result, Abbott confirms, is a region whose unique initiatives remain a model of American urban planning.
