Shifting Baselines: The Past and the Future of Ocean Fisheries
Shifting Baselines explores the real-world implications of a groundbreaking idea: we must understand the oceans of the past to protect the oceans of the future. In 1995, acclaimed marine biologist Daniel Pauly coined the term "shifting baselines" to describe a phenomenon of lowered expectations, in which each generation regards a progressively poorer natural world as normal. This seminal volume expands on Pauly's work, showing how skewed visions of the past have led to disastrous marine policies and why historical perspective is critical to revitalize fisheries and ecosystems.
 
Edited by marine ecologists Jeremy Jackson and Enric Sala, and historian Karen Alexander, the book brings together knowledge from disparate disciplines to paint a more realistic picture of past fisheries. The authors use case studies on the cod fishery and the connection between sardine and anchovy populations, among others, to explain various methods for studying historic trends and the intricate relationships between species. Subsequent chapters offer recommendations about both specific research methods and effective management. This practical information is framed by inspiring essays by Carl Safina and Randy Olson on a personal experience of shifting baselines and the importance of human stories in describing this phenomenon to a broad public.
 
While each contributor brings a different expertise to bear, all agree on the importance of historical perspective for effective fisheries management. Readers, from students to professionals, will benefit enormously from this informed hindsight.

New Latin American Cinema, Volume 2: Studies of National Cinemas

Mapping the historical and cultural contexts of film practices in Latin America, this two-volume collection of programmatic statements, esays and interviews is devoted to the study of a theorized, dynamic and unfinished cinematic movement. Forged by Latin America's post-colonial environment of underdevelopment and dependency, the New Latin American Cinema movement has sought to inscribe itself in Latin America's struggles for cultural and economic autonomy.

This volume comprises essays on the development of the New Latin American Cinema as a comparative national project. Essays are grouped by nation into two regions - Middle and Central America and Caribbean and South America - for comparitive study, particularly between capitalist and post-revolutionary socialist formations. The selected essays examine the relationship between cinema and nationhood and the ambiguous categories of culture, identity and nation within the socio-historical specificities of the movement's development, especially in Cuba, Brazil, Mexico, Chile and Argentina. This collection will serve as an essential reference and research tool for the study of world cinema. The collection, while celebrating the diversity and innovation of the New Latin American Cinema, explicates the historical importance of filmmaking as a cultural form and political practice in Latin America.

Pyomo ― Optimization Modeling in Python (Springer Optimization and Its Applications)

​This book provides a complete and comprehensive guide to Pyomo (Python Optimization Modeling Objects) for beginning and advanced modelers, including students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, academic researchers, and practitioners. Using many examples to illustrate the different techniques useful for formulating models, this text beautifully elucidates the breadth of modeling capabilities that are supported by Pyomo and its handling of complex real-world applications. This second edition provides an expanded presentation of Pyomo’s modeling capabilities, providing a broader description of the software that will enable the user to develop and optimize models. Introductory chapters have been revised to extend tutorials; chapters that discuss advanced features now include the new functionalities added to Pyomo since the first edition including generalized disjunctive programming, mathematical programming with equilibrium constraints, and bilevel programming.

Pyomo is an open source software package for formulating and solving large-scale optimization problems. The software extends the modeling approach supported by modern AML (Algebraic Modeling Language) tools. Pyomo is a flexible, extensible, and portable AML that is embedded in Python, a full-featured scripting language. Python is a powerful and dynamic programming language that has a very clear, readable syntax and intuitive object orientation. Pyomo includes Python classes for defining sparse sets, parameters, and variables, which can be used to formulate algebraic expressions that define objectives and constraints. Moreover, Pyomo can be used from a command-line interface and within Python's interactive command environment, which makes it easy to create Pyomo models, apply a variety of optimizers, and examine solutions.

Spectacular Things Happen Along the Way: Lessons from an Urban Classroom―10th Anniversary Edition (The Teaching for Social Justice Series)

This celebrated narrative shows how a teacher, alongside his 5th-grade students, co-created a curriculum based on the students’ needs, interests, and questions. Follow Brian Schultz and his students from a Chicago housing project as they work together to develop an emergent and authentic curriculum based on what is most important to the 5th-graders―replacing their dilapidated school. The persuasive storytelling that captured the attention of educators and the media depicts the journey of one teacher in an urban school and his students juxtaposed against the powerful and entrenched bureaucracy of Chicago’s public education system. In this second edition, Schultz examines how school reform continues to fail students in urban contexts, reflects on his teaching and writing from a decade ago, and offers compelling updates on students and what became of the school. A lot can be learned from the young people of Room 405, then and now. Not only did these particular 5th-graders push back against the city and school board in their pursuit for a better learning environment for themselves and their community, but they also learned about the power of using their voices in purposeful ways.

Book Features:

  • Depictions of justice-oriented teaching amidst the current climate of high-stakes testing, standardization, and accountability.
  • Details of the trials, tribulations, and missteps alongside the successes and discoveries the teacher and students experienced along the way.
  • Insights to help teachers reflect, change, and transform their own classroom practices.
  • A new Foreword by Pedro Noguera, “A Lesson for Teachers on Making Choices and Making a Difference.”
  • A new Afterword by Sonia Nieto, “On Teaching with Hope and Humility.”

Horror Gems, Volume Twelve (Volume 12)
Armchair Fiction presents extra large paperback collections of the best in classic horror short stories. "Horror Gems, Vol. Twelve" is a terrific anthology of shuddery tales by some of horror’s best writers, featuring the very underrated and unsung Weird Tales veteran, Allison V. Harding. In this collection you’ll find that terror can take many forms. One might wonder what is really down there, deep…deep inside the earth after reading “The Frightened Engineer” and “Black Angels Have No Wings.” “He Played With Dolls” will have us all questioning whether or not strange and terrible gods can abound in sparsely populated places. With “The Man Who Was Pale” and “Periscope Prey” the idea of strictly minding one’s own business is nothing but moldy rubbish. And “Incident at The Galloping Horse” and “The Bridle” will have you holding your breath next time you decide to go for a ride. Join us, as we conjure up an even dozen stories that we hope will make your blood run cold, your hair stand on end, and without a doubt… give you the creeps! The contents are as follows: THE FRIGHTENED ENGINEER by Allison V. Harding SPIDER MANSION by Fritz Leiber PERISCOPE PREY by David Wright O’Brien THE MAN WHO WAS PALE by Jack Sharkey HE PLAYED WITH DOLLS by William P. McGivern INCIDENT AT THE GALLOPING HORSE by Carl Jacobi THE BRIDLE by David H.
