A new voice in comics is incisive, funny, and fiercely feminist. ´´The mental load. It´s incessant, gnawing, exhausting, and disproportionately falls to women. You know the scene--you´re making dinner, calling the plumber/doctor/mechanic, checking homework and answering work emails--at the same time. All the while, you are being peppered with questions by your nearest and dearest ´where are my shoes?, ´do we have any cheese?...´´´ --Australian Broadcasting Corp on Emma´s comic In her first book of comic strips, Emma reflects on social and feminist issues by means of simple line drawings, dissecting the mental load, ie all that invisible and unpaid organizing, list-making and planning women do to manage their lives, and the lives of their family members. Most of us carry some form of mental load--about our work, household responsibilities, financial obligations and personal life; but what makes up that burden and how it´s distributed within households and understood in offices is not always equal or fair. In her strips Emma deals with themes ranging from maternity leave (it is not a vacation!), domestic violence, the clitoris, the violence of the medical world on women during childbirth, and other feminist issues, and she does so in a straightforward way that is both hilarious and deadly serious.. If you´re not laughing, you´re probably crying in recognition. Emma´s comics also address the everyday outrages and absurdities of immigrant rights, income equality, and police violence. Emma has over 300,000 followers on Facebook, her comics have been. shared 215,000 times, and have elicited comments from 21,000 internet users. An article about her in the French magazine L´Express drew 1.8 million views--a record since the site was created. And her comic has just been picked up by The Guardian. Many women will recognize themselves in THE MENTAL LOAD, which is sure to stir a wide ranging, important debate on what it really means to be a woman today.

Over the last 25 years, cognitive load theory has become one of the world´s leading theories of instructional design. It is heavily researched by many educational and psychological researchers and is familiar to most practicing instructional designers, especially designers using computer and related technologies. The theory can be divided into two aspects that closely inter-relate and influence each other: human cognitive architecture and the instructional designs and prescriptions that flow from that architecture. The cognitive architecture is based on biological evolution. The resulting description of human cognitive architecture is novel and accordingly, the instructional designs that flow from the architecture also are novel. All instructional procedures are routinely tested using randomized, controlled experiments. Roughly 1/3 of the book will be devoted to cognitive architecture and its evolutionary base with 2/3 devoted to the instructional implications that follow, including technology-based instruction. Researchers, teachers and instructional designers need the book because of the explosion of interest in cognitive load theory over the last few years. The theory is represented in countless journal articles but a detailed, modern overview presenting the theory and its implications in one location is not available.

A sticky-fingered brewer finds himself in a messy situation after the theft of a mutated water lily and a botched marriage proposal end with him defecating substantial amounts of solid gold. Thrust into the limelight, the young man draws unwanted attention from the world over as people scramble to understand the enigmatic philosopher´s stone. Add in a heroin-addicted best bud, a psychic drug trafficker, a power-lifting girlfriend, a reclusive botanist specializing in psilocybin, and a well-intentioned cop, and boom: The Philosopher´s Load. If Bukowski or Burroughs had been as influenced by bizarro fiction and Dungeons & Dragons as they were booze and dope, this would be the type of fiction they´d have written. Science fiction? Not quite. Urban fantasy? There´s no vampire/werewolf/teenage love triangle. Contemporary fantasy? You´re getting warmer. Supernatural crime thriller? Bingo. Chock full of drugs, violence, awful antiheroes, and villains who are even worse, The Philosopher´s Load is fast-paced genre fiction for listeners tired of the same old same old. 1.

Bob Odenkirk is a legend in the comedy-writing world, winning Emmys and acclaim for his work on Saturday Night Live, Mr. Show with Bob and David, and many other seminal television shows. This book, his first, is a spleen-bruisingly funny omnibus that ranges from absurdist monologues (´´Martin Luther King Jr.´s Worst Speech Ever´´) to intentionally bad theater (´´Hitler Dinner Party: A Play´´), from avant-garde fiction (´´Obit for the Creator of Mad Libs´´) to free-verse poetry that´s funnier and more powerful than the work of Calvin Trillin, Jewel, and Robert Louis Stevenson combined. Odenkirk´s debut resembles nothing so much as a hilariousnew sketch comedy show that´s exclusively available as a streaming video for your mind. As Odenkirk himself writes in ´´The Second Meeting of Jesus and Lazarus,´´ it is a book ´´to be read aloud to yourself in the voice of Bob Newhart´´. 1. Language: English.

What lists, systems, and self-help books have failed to do for young moms in the trenches, Jesus can accomplish blindfolded. Yes, moms are busy, they need a break, and they´d just like a shower. But they are also strong and brilliant and have the power to move mountains. Best-selling author and speaker Jen Hatmaker takes the words and deeds of Jesus, adds the humor of a mom´s observations on life, and offers messages of grace and encouragement. She shows overburdened moms 40 things Jesus doesn´t expect them to do on their own. Covering areas such as worry, marriage, priorities, money, and the trap of comparison, this lively Bible teacher brings Jesus´s message alive in a format geared to the short moments moms have that can be allotted to reflection. This is a devotional for the woman inside the mom - the Bible student, the learner, the world-changer. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sarah Zimmerman.
