'Etchells writes eloquently ... A heartfelt defence of a demonised pastime' The Times 'Once in an age, a piece of culture comes along that feels like it was specifically created for you, the beats and words and ideas are there because it is your life the creator is describing. Lost In A Good Game is exactly that. It will touch your heart and mind. And even if Bowser, Chun-li or Q-Bert weren't crucial parts of your youth, this is a flawless victory for everyone' Adam Rutherford When Pete Etchells was 14, his father died from motor neurone disease. In order to cope, he immersed himself in a virtual world - first as an escape, but later to try to understand what had happened. Etchells is now a researcher into the psychological effects of video games, and was co-author on a recent paper explaining why WHO plans to classify ‘game addiction’ as a danger to public health are based on bad science and (he thinks) are a bad idea. In this, his first book, he journeys through the history and development of video games - from Turing’s chess machine to mass multiplayer online games like World of Warcraft- via scientific study, to investigate the highs and lows of playing and get to the bottom of our relationship with games - why we do it, and what they really mean to us. At the same time, Lost in a Good Game is a very unusual memoir of a writer coming to terms with his grief via virtual worlds, as he tries to work out what area of popular culture we should classify games (a relatively new technology) under.

What is a sister? What should a sister be? How do you relate to your sister—in childhood, adult hood, and throughout life? What are the characteristics and traits of sisters? What are the personalities of sisters? Are there particular types of sister groups? In My Sister, My Enemy, author Dr. Pamela Renee Applewhite journeys through sisterhood using various sister examples, traits, personalities, interactions, relationships, thoughts, whims, notions, and more. A total reflection of sisterhood, she shares various examples of sisters to demonstrate how we have been, how we have not been, and what we need to do to get it right. Filled with an array of touching and real-life sister stories, My Sister, My Enemy addresses a host of situations sisters face. Applewhite seeks to encourage sisters to find healing or triumphant victories. Geared for sisters old, young, and in between, she not only chronicles her personal story, but that of others who have experienced the joys, pains, happiness, trials, tribulations, sadness, loneliness, death of a sister, and revivals of sisterhood. It’s about getting back to love, to closeness, and to sharing.

We do know that God is love and everything He does is out of His love for you. God’s love is so glorious, magnificent, and splendid that He sent His son to die on the cross for you to free you from sin. God gave His son’s life for yours. Jesus died so you could live. Romans 5:8 says, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” God shows His love for you by not only forgiving you of your sins, but by bringing you into His family. He has qualified you to share in His inheritance of the saints. (Col 1:12) This inheritance includes salvation, strength, hope, peace, comfort, wisdom, fellowship and so much more! God's love justifies your life and fills you with hope for the future. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” Death has no power over those who love and are loved by God. And that is you and that is me. Paul the Apostle says he does not believe that anything can separate us from the love of God. God loves you and your insecurities. He is teaching you how to love yourself and how to love others. He is showing you the true meaning of His agape love and what it means to truly be loved. Love is the greatest gift one could ever give, and it is the greatest gift one can ever receive. The bible says that out of faith, hope and love, love is the greatest of the three. You have that love. Romans 8:35-39 NKJV “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written: “For Your sake we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” God loves you in-spite of your mistakes. You can mess up and God will still love you. Isn’t that great to know that there is someone who loves you unconditionally? Get the book and be blessed!

There may have come a time in your life when you feel like you have lost your zest for life. Because of all the hell and high water that you’ve been through it may seem as if you have lost your joy, your peace, you desire to go on. It’s very easy to fall apart because of all you have been through. But today is a new day. Take encouragement also from the vision of the valley of dry bones. Jerusalem was totally annihilated and there was nothing left but dead bodies all over the city. The city was destroyed and everybody in it was killed. Now there was desolation, hopelessness. Materially it looked impossible to rebuild, everything and everyone was destroyed. But if you know God like I have gotten to know Him then you know God can do anything but fail. God works best in situations where the human hand cannot. . He is with you in every battle I fight. He uses trials and tribulations in situations and circumstances to bring about triumph and victory in the life of the believer. God Gives Us A Spirit Of Strength And Power. Through faith in Christ we are given a spirit of power, love and discipline, and for that reason we have nothing to fear. We can hold onto his promises and be confident that he’ll see us through even the darkest of days. You will be countlessly blessed. You will be prodigious in your wealth. You will be boundless an unlimited in your health and any other areas that are dry in your life. Don't give up on God and He won't give up on you!

This is a book of advice for students considering doctoral programs and doctoral students considering faculty life. It is framed as a glossary of about 150 terms that author Herb Childress, as a first-generation student, wishes that he had known and understood as he applied for and completed his PhD and went into the academic job market. The guide examines the practices of doctoral education and faculty life through entries that illuminate terms such as buyout, edited volume, and FERPA; so many things that most academics learned somewhere along the way and forget that others don't know. The alphabetical reference format enables readers to turn directly to the topic in question and find some borrowed wisdom. Each entry features a little storytelling, then some larger context, and leaves readers able to put on the mask of the capable scholar even though they feel like impostors. Every time they hear a term they feel they ought to know, it is here. The book is often funny as well, attempting to offer both encouragement and reality to students facing unconscionable odds as they search for safe harbor. As more than half of all college instructors are now adjuncts, the questions about an academic career are changing, and there are now fewer reliable answersand answers. Herb Childress s volume promises to be a trusted companion to many a graduate student, aspiring academic, and adjunct professor. "

In 1972, Damian Garcia is a streetwise kid turned PhD student. He grew up hard in the slums of New York City. His draft number is low, meaning he could be called upon to die or kill in Vietnam. As a peace-loving vegetarian, Damian is ready to move to Canada—until he finds a better way: doctoral degree in art history. He learns the importance of image. After all, who would suspect a PhD student of being a global drug smuggler and money launderer? Damian’s business plan focuses a new combination of opium and hashish that his fellow students brand O/H. They work together and trust each other. They don’t sell on the streets, instead targeting other students, doctors, lawyers—people the cops would never expect to be using. They make millions, and no one suspects a thing. They are not gangsters; they use brains instead of brawn, as modeled by their leader, Damian Garcia. They are honest drug smugglers, investing their vast profits in helping the poor and those in need. Only students directly involved ever know about the covert business, but together they form a family, loyal and loving through and beyond graduation day.

"Johnston, Roseby, and Kuehnle take you behind the child's eyes, into their heads...[they] flesh out the familial context, and bring it all back into the larger social world....When you are done reading, you know who these families are, what the children need, and -- as a clinician -- how you can help them." --Marsha Kline Pruett, PhD, MSL Maconda Brown O'Connor Professor Smith College School for Social Work "This book addresses problems that arise for children of conflicted and violent divorceÖ.It provides a good base for beginning to treat children in this situation as well as good information for understanding the legal and community services available." --Doody's The fully updated and revised edition of In the Name of the Child examines both the immediate and long-term effects of high-conflict divorce on children. By combining three decades of research with clinical experience, the authors trace the developmental problems affecting very young children through adolescence and adulthood, paying special attention to the impact of family violence and the dynamics of parental alienation. The authors present clinical interventions that have proven to be most effective in their own clinical work with families. With a new emphasis on the need for prevention and early intervention, this edition examines how defensive strategies and symptoms of distress in children can consolidate into immutable, long-standing psychopathology in their adult lives. This book contains the policies and procedures that can preempt these high-conflict outcomes in divorcing families. Key Features: Contains a new chapter examining the effects of violent divorce on a sample of young adults, tracking their developmental changes from adolescence through adulthood Discusses the developmental threats to both boys and girls of different ages and stages, along with therapeutic interventions and guidelines for parenting plans Proposes principles and criteria for decision-making about custody, visitation, and parenting plans based on individual assessment of the developing child within his or her family Mental health professionals, educators, family lawyers, judges, and court administrators will find this book to be an essential read, with all the knowledge and insight needed to understand the short- and long-term effects of violent divorce on children.
