Arthur Nersesian's underground literary treasure is an unforgettable slice of gritty New York City life...and the darkly hilarious odyssey of an anonymous slacker. He's a perennial couch-surfer, an aspiring writer searching for himself in spite of himself, and he's just trying to survive. But life has other things in store for the fuck-up. From being dumped by his girlfriend to getting fired for asking for a raise, from falling into a robbery to posing as a gay man to keep his job at a porno theater, the fuck-up's tragi-comedy is perfectly realized by Arthur Nersesian, who manages to create humor and suspense out of urban desperation. "Read it and howl," says Bruce Benderson (author of User), "and be glad it didn't happen to you."
@$#*%! Our most taboo word and how the law keeps it forbidden. This entertaining read is about the word "fuck", the law, and the taboo. Whether you shout it out in the street or whisper it in the bedroom, deliberately plan a protest, or spontaneously blurt it out, if you say "fuck," someone wants to silence you, either with a dirty look across the room or by making a rule that you cannot say the word. When it's the government trying to cleanse your language, though, you should worry. Words are ideas. If the government controls the words we use, it can control what we think. To protect this liberty, we must first understand why the law's treatment of "fuck" puts that freedom at risk. This book examines the law surrounding the word and reveals both inconsistencies in its treatment and tension with other identifiable legal rights that the law simply doesn't answer. The power of taboo provides the framework to understand these uncertainties. It also explains why attempts to curtail the use of "fuck" through law are doomed to fail. Fundamentally, it persists because it is taboo; not in spite of it.

[From the dust jacket:] "Losing a fellow officer in a shoot-out is enough to rattle Sigrid's cool, controlled demeanor. Discovering that her lover, famous artist Oscar Nauman, has also been killed devastates her. She withdraws from her colleagues, her police career, her life. But it is art she cannot escape: Oscar has left her his paintings worth millions, and galleries are clamoring to sell them. Just as the early Italian masters painted a wash of vermilion over green to produce the warm flesh tones of their Madonnas--only to have time fade the red to leave a deathlike tint behind--Sigrid begins to see through the vibrant surface of New York's art world to the interplay of revenge, greed, and power beneath. These are motives she recognizes from her police work as catalysts for murder. And when a shocking homicide occurs, it hits close to home for Sigrid, implicating Oscar's friends and fellow artists in the crime. Her desire to find the killer now puts Sigrid back on the job and out on the street. More than justice is at stake: whether she can still cut it on the force and whether she will ever again dare to love hangs in the balance. FUGITIVE COLORS goes beyond the whodunit genre to combine a top-notch mystery with a portrait of a woman cop indelibly changed--able to notice the background details, the subtle shades, and the feelings that ultimately damn or save us all." This is the last book in the Sigrid Harald mystery series. #6, Corpus Christmas is in the Bookshare collection, with more Sigrid Harald books to come.

Fulfilling the Promise of the Differentiated Classroom: Strategies and Tools for Responsive Teachingby Carol Ann Tomlinson
Each year, teachers welcome a new group of students to their classroom. And each year, the same thoughts pass through teachers minds: What will this class be like? Am I a good enough teacher to reach every student, or will I fail some of them? Good teaching begins with good relationships and a passion for students and content that students can see, says differentiation pioneer Carol Ann Tomlinson. To truly engage learners, teachers must realize that how they teach is as important as what they teach. In this book, Tomlinson revisits her responsive teaching principles to examine how successful teachers handle the three interdependent elements of the differentiated classroom: The needs of students, The response of teachers, and The role of curriculum and instruction to address learner needs. Using real-life stories, Tomlinson illustrates how teachers manage the interaction of these elements to create meaningful ties to each child. She explores both theory and practice, suggesting helpful strategies and routines and providing a collection of surveys, handouts, and guides that will help teachers organize their efforts and achieve their goals. The promise of the differentiated classroom is the promise that every student will feel affirmed, engaged, and supported by the teacher. Although each student enters the classroom with different needs and experiences, Tomlinson shows that the proper response to such diversity helps students discover the power of knowledge to reveal, amplify, and develop the best that is in them.
