Upon its release in November 1981, KISS' "Music From The Elder" was confusingly received and by the time the calendar had turned to 1982, the album was essentially a commercial failure. Through a series of in-depth interviews, original features and related special content, "Odyssey" shines a spotlight on "The Elder" like never before.

An indigo outline appeared around him, sustaining itself before Mendo's form glided with enough speed that he ducked under his enemy's weapon and used the momentum he'd built up to pivot, spring forward, and slash at the Elder's head!

"The Uesugi Clan has fled into the darkest corners of the Lower-City. We’re to find them, to put them out of their misery. Tavon, Abul, it’s time for the two of you to prove yourselves. Be ruthless..." After he’d survived to reach the age of eighteen, Tavon entered the criminal underworld proper. For most of his life, he’d trained to be a powerhouse as well as an intimidating presence; he therefore used his past experiences to mold himself into a thug capable of holding his own. While relaying his memories to an apprentice, the rest of the Citadel comes under threat from a madman’s schemes. At the same time, both a terrorist organization and a notorious mercenary group close in to wreak havoc upon one of the last human civilizations. This is the account of Tavon’s first challenge, Aaliyah’s discovery of zol, and a record of the events that unfolded prior to a terrible catastrophe...

About the book The guns had barely gone silent after thirty months of a gruesome civil war. The infrastructure in the theater of war had all but been completely battered. A young final-year high school student fresh from the ravages of war had gained admission into one of the only four universities in his forcibly reunited country to study medicine in the western region of the country. A whole world of opportunities had been opened up. An unfolding odyssey of eleven action-packed years in the local West was to transform the emerging lover-boy eaglet through the ranks of William Shakespeares lover sighing like furnace to the soldier full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard. A short stint in party politics followed by leadership in professional politics pitched the young man against the powers that be. These were to culminate into series of dangerously veiled duels that were to ultimately force the man to seek disguised refuge in the shores of the acclaimed West. A new world, a new horizon, new scenes, new challenges, some uncanny solutions; the main actor in the odyssey himself bares it all!

Americans are living longer, and the elder population is growing larger. To meet the ongoing need for quality information on elder health, the Encyclopedia of Aging and Public Health combines multiple perspectives to offer readers a more accurate and complete picture of the aging process. The book takes a biopsychosocial approach to the complexities of its subject. In-depth introductory chapters include coverage on a historical and demographic overview of aging in America, a guide to biological changes accompanying aging, an analysis of the diversity of the U.S. elder population, legal issues commonly affecting older adults, and the ethics of using cognitively impaired elders in research. From there, over 425 entries cover the gamut of topics, trends, diseases, and phenomena: -Specific populations, including ethnic minorities, custodial grandparents, and centenarians -Core medical conditions associated with aging, from cardiac and pulmonary diseases to Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s -Mental and emotional disorders -Drugs/vitamins/alternative medicine -Disorders of the eyes, feet, and skin -Insomnia and sleep disorders; malnutrition and eating disorders -Sexual and gender-related concerns -And a broad array of social and political issues, including access to care, abuse/neglect, veterans’ affairs, and assisted suicide Entries on not-quite-elders’ concerns (e.g., midlife crisis, menopause) are featured as well. And all chapters and entries include references and resource lists. The Encyclopedia has been developed for maximum utility to clinicians, social workers, researchers, and public health professionals working with older adults. Its multidisciplinary coverage and scope of topics make this volume an invaluable reference for academic and public libraries.

'Human wisdom is of little or no value', wrote Plato in his Apology. And yet the ancient Greeks, including Plato himself, more than any other people of antiquity were fascinated by the pursuit of the wisdom they called philosophia. That search for knowledge involved an extensive use of maxims and quotations, as we can see from those expressions of Homer prefaced by the phrase 'as people say'. Homer, the Seven Sages and the Pre-Socratic philosophers are still extensively quoted in all the major western languages. Yet for all their popularity, until now there has been no single resource to which interested readers might turn. This unique reference book offers one of the most comprehensive selections of Greek quotations ever committed to print. With its English text matched by the original Greek, the volume collects 7500 entries, ranging from the archaic period to late antiquity, and across philosophy, drama, poetry, history, science and medicine, each indexed with key words to enable fast sourcing. Together, these selections provide an incomparable insight into the glories of Greek civilization.

Get a wealth of information about the theory and practice of social work with older adults, their families, and their caregivers! Although there is a considerable amount of writing on both group work and social work with the elderly, there is surprisingly little about applying this practice method to this specific age group. Group Work and Aging: Issues in Practice, Research, and Education fills this gap by presenting penetrating articles about a mutual aid approach to working with diverse groups of older adults with varied needs. Respected experts and gifted researchers provide case studies, practice examples, and explanation of theory to illustrate this practice method with aging adults, their families, and their caregivers. Group Work and Aging: Issues in Practice, Research, and Education discusses in-depth information on group work with gay and lesbian elders, caregivers, elders with Alzheimer’s disease, service providers, special populations such as Vietnamese and Latino/a elders, and provides information on the use of expressive therapies like art, drama, and dance. Each well-referenced chapter presents high quality, up-to-date social group work practice strategies to prepare practitioners for the needs of the growing population of elderly in the near future. Group Work and Aging: Issues in Practice, Research, and Education discusses: the adaptation of group work practice approaches when working with older group members the use of a Record of Service as an analytical tool in group work with aging lesbians a chronicle of a student’s field placement at a drop-in center for homeless senior citizens the sociocultural reality of the Asian immigrant elderly residential substance abuse treatment for older adults mutual aid groups for older persons with mental illness the relationship between caregiver support groups and the marker framework of family caregiving telephone caregiver support groups group work interventions with elderly parents of adults with severe mental illness a program for the development and implementation of an intergenerational singing group support groups as an effective therapy at end-of-life the use of a mutual aid group with home attendants and much more!

OVERDUE: Quality Care for Our Elder Citizens examines how we as a culture treat our elder citizens as they continue life’s journey. The author presents the idea that our elder citizens are essentially our future selves, and therefore, each and every one of us should be concerned about the quality of care and quality of life they receive, especially within the long-term care setting. This book provides information on the nursing home industry from an insider’s perspective. It addresses more dignified, respectful, and effective models of care and proposes the need for grassroots advocacy and a national conversation on how we care for our elder citizens.

Of the 15,000 nursing homes in the United States, how many are places you’d want to visit, much less live in? Now that people are living longer and more of the population are elderly, this question is more important than ever, particularly for people with disabilities. We must transform long-term care into an experience we and our loved ones can face without dread. It can be done. The Penelope Project shows how by taking readers on an ambitious journey to create a long-term care community that engages its residents in challenging, meaningful art-making. At Milwaukee’s Luther Manor, a team of artists from the University of Wisconsin’s theatre department and Sojourn Theatre Company, university students, staff, residents, and volunteers traded their bingo cards for copies of The Odyssey. They embarked on a two-year project to examine this ancient story from the perspective of the hero who never left home: Penelope, wife of Odysseus. Together, the team staged a play that engaged everyone and transcended the limits not just of old age and disability but also youth, institutional regulations, and disciplinary boundaries. Inviting readers to see through the eyes of residents, students, artists, staff, family members, and experts in the fields of education, long-term care, and civically engaged arts practice, this book underscores the essential role of the arts and humanities in living richly. Waiting, as Penelope waited, need not be a time of loss and neglect. The Penelope Project boldly dreams of how to make late life a time of growth and learning. If you dream of improving people’s lives through creative endeavors, this book provides practical advice.

The most important surviving encyclopedia from the ancient world, Pliny the Elder's Natural History is unparalleled as a guide to the cultural meanings of everyday things in first-century Rome. As part of a new direction in classical scholarship, Trevor Murphy reads the work not just for the information it contains, but to understand how and why Pliny collects and presents information as he does. Concentrating on the geographic and ethnographic information in Pliny, Murphy demonstrates the work's political importance. The selection and arrangement of the encyclopedia's material show that it is more than an instrument of reference: it is a monument to the power of Roman imperial society.
