Download or read book Trash Mountain written by Bradley Bazzle and published by Red Hen Press. This book was released on 2018-05-01 with total page 221 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A young man goes to war against a landfill in a novel that “revels in the absurd but never strays far from the deeply felt humanity of its characters” (Maceo Montoya, author of The Deportation of Wopper Barraza). Ben Shippers doesn’t have much use for school, friends, or pretty much anyone except his smartass sister, but he does harbor a secret passion: Trash Mountain, the central feature of the noxious landfill next to his house, the fumes from which have made his sister ill. After a botched attempt to destroy Trash Mountain with a homemade firebomb, Ben begins a years-long infiltration operation that leads him to drop out of school to work alongside homeless trash-pickers, and then, eventually, intern at the very place he meant to destroy. Ben’s boss there, a charismatic would-be titan of sanitation, shows Ben the intricate moralities of the trash industry, forcing him to choose between monetary stability and his environmental principles. With dark humor, Trash Mountain reflects on life in small southern cities in decline—and an adolescent’s search for fundamental values without responsible adults to lead the way. “From Mark Twain to George Saunders . . . Trash Mountain joins a long tradition of dark humor, wild inventiveness, and social satire in American letters. By turns hilarious, colorful, and strange.” —Maceo Montoya, author of The Deportation of Wopper Barraza “Chronicles the ways in which Ben’s early idealism erodes under more complex concerns . . . Bazzle’s novel explores the compromises one makes in life even as it blends the gritty and the extravagant along the way.” —Kirkus Reviews

Download or read book D j Vu written by Daniel West Jr. and published by Lulu.com. This book was released on 2018-07-03 with total page 258 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Quantum Physics suggests that all of time and space exists in a single, precise, moment, separated only by thin veils of reality. That there is, has been, and always will be, the one universal now. Eisenstein's theory of relativity suggests that time is related to motion, that time moves at different speeds based on how fast an object is traveling, and in what direction that object is traveling in. If those two theories were merged into a cohesive whole, it would not be a far reach to come to the conclusion that where an object was in space would determine the when of anan object in space. The solar system is travelling outward from the origin of the big bang at a speed of approximately 72,000 kilometers per hour. At that speed, time flows at what we consider the 'normal' rate. Using the Quantum theory of time. The big bang, is 'time zero'. Dinosaurs would still rule the earth at a point in space 650 million years behind our current location on our current trajectory.

Download or read book Garbage in Popular Culture written by Mehita Iqani and published by SUNY Press. This book was released on 2020-11-01 with total page 206 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Explores the cultural politics of garbage in contemporary global society. Garbage in Popular Culture is the first book to explicitly link media discourse, consumer culture and the cultural politics of garbage in contemporary global society. It makes an original contribution to the areas of consumer culture studies, visual culture, media and communications, and cultural theory through a critical analysis of the ways in which waste and garbage are visually communicated in the public realm. Mehita Iqani examines three key themes evident in the global representation of garbage: questions of agency and activism, cultures of hedonism and luxury, and anxieties about devastation and its affect. Each theme is explored through a number of case studies, including zero-waste recycling campaigns communicated on Instagram, to fine art made with waste, popular entertainment festivals, tropical beach tourism, and films about oil spills and plastic waste in oceans. Iqani argues that we need a new vocabulary to think about what it means to be human in this new age of consumption-produced waste, and reflects on what rubbish allows us to learn about our relationship with the natural world. Mehita Iqani is Professor of Media Studies at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, and the author of Consumption, Media, and the Gobal South: Aspiration Contested.

Download or read book Tinker Bell and Mirabel written by Mary Ellen Jackson and published by Balboa Press. This book was released on 2016-08-11 with total page 176 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: About the Book Its about freedom. This uplifting little book with inspirational messages from an earth spirit to her human sister focuses on freedom from our hardwired conditioning of musts and shoulds. It will appeal to anyone questioning the meaning of their lives. The messages are delivered in a funny, quirky manner. The little diva, Tinker Bell, will use any object to get her point across, such as a bristle hair brush or hats. Using the analogy of the hard- versus a soft-bristle brush, she tells us the hair cells groan when brushed by the hard-bristle brush, whereas with the soft brush, the cells settle down into a quiet snooze. Similarly, in our quest for spiritual growth, we tend to push ourselves too hard, whereas she artfully urges us on with compassion and humor and tweaks us when we get too serious. In exploring the many roles humans play throughout the day, Tinker Bell uses hats as an example. She enjoys watching the creativity, pep, and vigor. However, she points out, We never stop to think whether we are suited for some of the roles we take on or about the effects on the body. She tells us the energy reserves are stretched and the nervous system is strained when we blindly jump unprepared into unknown territory.
