Stickers are an essential part of the street art movement. Inexpensive and easy to produce, they act as a kind of informal business card for some graffiti writers, and a quick and effective promotional tool for many artists and illustrators. As more and more stickers are placed around major cities in the world, interest in the subject keeps growing. Stickers have been the subject of many street art publications to date, but most of these are collections of photographs of stickers spotted in urban environments. These books are missing the fundamental fun of stickers – the fun of peeling and sticking, and of owning and collecting cool stickers. This collectable, fully-peelable sticker book featuring illustration, graffiti and graphics, is filled with an amazing collection of more than 250 specially-commissioned stickers by artists, illustrators and graffiti writers from around the world, many of whom have not been featured in a publication before. It will appeal to a young market of designers, street artists and illustrators, plus street art fans and anyone who collects stickers.

This is the first book to celebrate the use of stickers in skateboarding. Showing the full spectrum of skate sticker art, it brings together over 350 of the most memorable stickers ever produced. Stickers became extremely important in the late 1980s and early 90s when many smaller, skater-owned companies emerged—they are an easy way to get brands noticed and virtually every board graphic is also available in sticker form. Nearly every skater has a sticker collection of some sort, either on a bedroom door, on the fridge or in a shoe box. From Wes Humpston and Dogtown's stickers in the 1970s to Birdo at Consolidated's "Don't Do It" campaign, Skateboard Stickers features the very best designs, selected by pro skateboarders past and present. It includes sticker-related stories and articles, such as the story of Death skateboards or Jim Phillips' legendary Screaming Hand sticker logo for Speed Wheels Santa Cruz, and features quotes from skateboarders describing what stickers mean to them.

Belly Fat Effect
Author: Msc Mike Mutzel
You've done all the right things to lose weight and balance your blood sugar. You've counted calories, exercised, and switched to a low-glycemic diet-all with no long-term success.

New research has proved that the 'calories in-calories out' path to weight loss is obsolete.

Belly Fat Effect translates the new science into useable information that will give you a winning edge over your excess pounds and roller-coaster blood sugar levels. Learn now how to burn fat, not store it.

Reveals the precise correspondences between specific emotional and mental tensions and the illnesses and traumas of the body • Explains how physical complaints--energetic disturbances that lead to ailments or chronic conditions--are your soul speaking to you • Shows how the body part affected as well as which side it is on pinpoints what your soul is trying to tell you and what you need to work through emotionally • Explains the Yin-Yang energetic correspondences of the body: the Yang axis of the shoulders, the Yin axis of the hips, and the Yin-Yang maternal/paternal connections Our body speaks. Physical complaints--allergies, fever, sore throat, inflammation, cysts, backache, migraines, sinus problems, sciatica, dizzy spells, and even cancer--are all signs of deep tensions inside of us are seeking expression. This is why, given the same genetic foundation, one individual develops a specific illness while another remains in good health. Drawing on 20 years of experience and several thousand individual consultations with patients, Michel Odoul shows the “proof” of this lies in the clear correspondences between emotional and mental tensions and specific ailments. The author reveals how every illness or trauma is a signal of incredible precision: The part of the body affected pinpoints what your inner being is trying to tell you and what you need to work through emotionally. Providing a reference grid of body-mind connections, he explains, for example, how skin conditions reflect difficulties with aggression from the outside world and knee problems indicate inflexibility or tension in relationships. He shows not only how each side of the body has specific meanings and connections to emotions, relationships, and family but also how the upper and lower halves of the body have specific connections--together forming four quadrants with unique Yin-Yang balances, where Yin represents emotional issues and Yang represents action/inaction. He also explores the role of the meridians of Chinese medicine in distributing emotional and mental energy throughout the body. Offering keys to decipher what the body is trying to tell us, the author shows that we can learn to see physical ailments not as something caused by chance or fate but as a message from our heart and soul. By releasing the energies and patterns they point to, we can return to a state of health and forward movement on our path through life.
As we progress further into the twenty-first century, more and more people are beginning to understand the importance of early learning and, as a result, the subject continues to garner much attention and interest. Object Lessons and Early Learning leverages what is known about cognitive development of young children to examine the power of learning through objects in museum and heritage settings. Exploring the history and modern day practice of object-based learning, Shaffer outlines the rationale for endorsing this approach in both formal and informal learning spaces. She argues that museums, as collecting institutions, are learning spaces uniquely positioned to allow children to make meaning about their world through personal connections to cultural artifacts, natural specimens, and works of art. A range of case study descriptive object lessons, inspired by objects in museums as well as from the everyday world, are presented throughout the text as examples of ways in which children can be encouraged to engage with museum collections. Object Lessons and Early Learning offers insights into strategies for engaging young children as learners in museum settings, and, as such, will be essential reading for museum professionals, classroom educators, and students. It should also be of great interest to academics and researchers engaged in the study of museums and education.
"Ecouter le silence à l'intérieur est un défi de taille pour nous qui vivons distraits par le monde extérieur, agités et stressés, le coeur souvent fermé". Durant plus de trente ans, je me suis efforcé de soulager la souffrance et de favoriser la guérison d'autrui. D'abord en tant que chirurgien, puis psychothérapeute et, finalement, accompagnant psychospirituel, une fonction qui, selon moi, devrait être assumée par tous les professionnels de la santé. Un jour, j'ai fait une expérience extra-ordinaire qui a profondément transformé mon existence. J'ai entendu le silence, tout au fond, au-delà des sensations, des émotions et des pensées. Ce livre est le récit de cette expérience et une invitation à écouter le silence à l'intérieur de vous. Il est une sorte de prescription concrète et facile à suivre au quotidien. Puisse-t-il vous amener à une compréhension profonde de qui vous êtes et vous éveiller à l'essentiel pour en prendre soin". Dans ces pages, vous découvrirez : - le témoignage spirituel, sincère et sans fard d'un médecin qui n'a pas de religion ; - de précieux repères pour vous guider sur le chemin de l'éveil de la conscience ; - des exercices pratiques pour vivre une spiritualité incarnée dans le corps ; - une méditation d'ouverture du coeur et de plongée dans le silence intérieur pour transformer votre existence en profondeur.
