Prior to the Civil War, the fastest mail between the West Coast and the East took almost thirty days by stagecoach along a southern route through Texas. Some Californians feared their state would not remain in the Union, separated so far from the free states. Then businessman William Russell invested in a way to deliver mail between San Francisco and the farthest western railroad, in Saint Joseph, Missouri - across two thousand miles of mountains, deserts, and plains - guaranteed in ten days or less. Russell hired eighty of the best and bravest riders, bought four hundred of the fastest and hardiest horses, and built relay stations along a central route - through modern-day Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, and Nevada, to California. Informed by his intimate knowledge of horses and Western geography, Ralph Moody's exciting account of the eighteen critical months that the Pony Express operated between April 1860 and October 1861 pays tribute to the true grit and determination of the riders and horses of the Pony Express. 1.

Managing your anxiety and panic attacks belongs to the past. It's time to recover.Children who experience worry and anxiety should tell you how they feel, but only when they are not frightened of becoming embarrassed, humiliated, or punished. Parents face particular challenges due to the fact children with anxiety tend to be nervous, avoidant, annoying, or exhausting. If you become frustrated and make these children feel bad, they cease being honest and begin telling you they are tired, unwell, or don't care. Without having real improvement, stressed and nervous children will try to keep away from experiencing anything terrible. A lot start to avoid circumstances where there is only a small likelihood they will end up feeling bad. Eventually, they end up making options based mostly on feared situations and not realities. If this remains, quite a few of these children will try to make new friends who could help them feel better. But in most cases, they lead to mastering escaping the problems using isolation, skipping school, becoming a member of "fringe" groups, looking for thrills, rejecting responsibility socially, or using alcohol and other drugs. In time, children and anxiety begin to express rage instead of their concern. Anger feels better than fear, and it is simpler for children to blame others if they can't escape feeling bad.On the other hand, blaming themselves instead of others leads to depression. Children reinforce and offer supremacy to their fears once they act to stay away from or escape unrealistic worries. In this way, the anxiousness grows. The child's self-confidence will fail to blossom at home and in school.What you will learn in this audiobook:Instructions to help your child prepare for collegeChild anxiety - when should I ask for help for my child? Relieve and reduce anxiety and regain control of your time Step-by-step instructions to cope after losing a child-custod 1.

Essay from the year 2018 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2.0, University of Oslo, language: English, abstract: In many ways, literature goes together with the current political events. After and during World War One it had a profound effect on the society and literature. People were first fascinated by the war due to the massive propaganda published by the governments, but shocked and feared of the horror they experienced during war time. Literature had changed dramatically and drastically when it came to war responses. It was mostly because the scale of damage was mostly unforeseen before the Great War. That's why literature was strong and self-conscious after this catastrophe in the early twentieth century. 'The Great War was, in cultural terms, the last nineteenth-century war, in that it provoked an outpouring of literature touching on an ancient set of beliefs about revelation, divine justice, and the nature of catastrophe.' For most of the writers it was hard to express all their feelings and experiences in long texts and novels. That's why famous writers such as Virginia Woolf, T.S. Eliot and James Joyce used the form of poems and poetry to express their feelings about what happened to them and the society in World War One. In the following essay, we're taking a closer look at these three writers and how they reacted to the First World War with literature.

'Mata (DePaul Univ.) ... is precise in describing the methodology of her study, which is one of the strengths of the book.... The work raises many questions, which is in itself valuable. Since much of what she presents is unfamiliar to most practitioners, it may require several readings.The issues, however, are worth consideration. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate and research collections.' -- S. Sugarman, Vermont State Colleges, in CHOICE, January 2015 'Jennifer Mata’s book is an important addition to the literature on spirituality in early childhood education. It strongly blends research literature with her own observations of four young children. These observations help the reader see how children’s spirituality expresses itself in the daily life of the classroom and also how it can be nourished by the teacher.' -- Jack Miller, Professor of Curriculum, Teaching and Learning, the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto 'With her rich descriptions of young children's spiritual experiences, Jennifer Mata takes us into the ordinary of their lives. Her carefully crafted research methodology provides a lens for others wanting to explore a dimension of development often overlooked or feared by those seeking insight into the whole child. The author invites us to open eyes, ears, hearts and minds to the lived experiences of young children wherever we meet them.' --Barbara Kimes Myers, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, DePaul University, Chicago, Illinois 'Mata’s book seems to be a solid contribution to our understanding of how young children grow in, and express, their spirituality.' --John Surr, NAEYC Young Children’s Spirituality Interest Forum, International Journal of Children's Spirituality

Punk; A Directory of Modern Subversive Culture

What is contemporary punk culture and how are those that practice it attempting to define their generation? We are all aware of the clichés of the leather clad and mohawked figure spitting and snarling into the camera. It has been seen a thousand times on TV, in the press and even on London's souvenir postcards. This is the image that, while once feared by conservative societies across the globe, has become a cartoon or pastiche of itself. Rendered harmless by the corporate flogging of its music, style and art, in its previous state it can no longer be classed as a subversive movement. However, punk and its core values have survived. In most ways it has morphed and evolved into something unrecognisable as its former self but the sprit lives on. This book attempts express the very nature of modern punk by looking at those closest to it.
