Описание: The revealing backstory of spaceflight before the establishment of NASA.
Cultural stereotypes to the contrary, approximately half of all video game players are now women. A subculture once dominated by men, video games have become a form of entertainment composed of gender binaries. Supported by games such as Diner Dash, Mystery Case Files, Wii Fit, and Kim Kardashian: Hollywood--which are all specifically marketed toward women--the gamer industry is now a major part of imagining what femininity should look like.
In Ready Player Two, media critic Shira Chess uses the concept of "Player Two"--the industry idealization of the female gamer--to examine the assumptions implicit in video games designed for women and how they have impacted gaming culture and the larger society. With Player Two, the video game industry has designed specifically for the feminine ideal: she is white, middle class, heterosexual, cis-gendered, and abled. Drawing on categories from time management and caregiving to social networking, consumption, and bodies, Chess examines how games have been engineered to shape normative ideas about women and leisure.
Ready Player Two presents important arguments about how gamers and game developers must change their thinking about both women and games to produce better games, better audiences, and better industry practices. Ultimately, this book offers vital prescriptions for how one of our most powerful entertainment industries must evolve its ideas of women.
Описание: If you asked people to post a status update on their relationship with food, most would say "It's Complicated." We aspire to eat healthfully but find ourselves making hasty food choices driven by stress and convenience. Or we treat ourselves to a decadent dessert but feel so guilty we don't even enjoy it. The truth is we can't make good food decisions if we don't deeply examine our relationship with food. In The Food Therapist, Shira Lenchewski offers readers an ongoing one-on-one food therapy session, revealing the root causes of our emotional hang-ups around food and providing the necessary tools to overcome them. This practical and judgment-free guide helps readers hone the skills needed to put their get-healthy intentions into daily action, such as planning ahead wisely, tuning into their fullness cues, and harnessing willpower (even when life gets messy). Lenchewski also offers easy-to-follow, tasty recipes aimed at rebalancing our hormones and conquering our cravings without deprivation. The Food Therapist is a refreshingly modern resource that helps us finally un-complicate our relationship with food and our bodies. We can then focus our efforts on making thoughtful, healthy choices, day in and day out, which serve our ultimate goals, whatever they may be.

Описание: A Heart's Gate Story The truth might ruin his dreams--or make them come true. When Zane moves into an old gothic brownstone, he discovers the house comes equipped with a caretaker--Kit, who lives in the basement. Zane is immediately drawn to the charming and attractive Kit. But Kit is much more than he seems. He is a two-hundred-year-old half-human, half-red-fox spirit who guards a Gate between the mortal and spirit worlds--a fact Zane should recognize, but doesn't. Orphaned at a young age, Zane never learned he comes from a long line of mystical Keepers. Kit needs Zane's help to protect the Gate, but how can he tell Zane of his legacy when that will crush Zane's dreams of traveling the world? If he takes up the mantle, Zane will be bound to the Gate, unable to leave it. But when Zane realizes Kit's true nature, and his own, he'll have to make a choice--fight to protect Kit and the Gate, or deny his destiny and any chance of a future with Kit.

Описание: A diagram of a voice, composed of lyric, visual, and prose poetry with polyrhythms that focus on schisms-within a family, within a society brutalized by racial tensions, and within the space crossed by the transition from fertility to its loss. Formally, it seeks to make a place for the fractured and disparate to cohere. How does one shape this condition? A graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, Dentz has a Ph.D. in Creative Writing and Literature from the University of Utah. She was Drunken Boat's Reviews Editor from 2011-2016, is currently Special Features Editor at Tarpaulin Sky and a professor at RPI.
