A New Model
One of the most outspoken voices gracing the cover of magazines today encourages women to be their most confident selves, recognize their personal beauty, and reach for their highest dreams in this wise, warm, and inspiring memoir Voluptuous beauty Ashley Graham has been modeling professionally since the age of thirteen. Discovered at a shopping mall in Nebraska, her stunning face and sexy curves have graced the covers of top magazines, including Cosmopolitan and British Vogue, and she was the first size 14 model to appear on the front of the wildly popular Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. The face of brands such as H&M Studio, she is also a judge for the latest season of America’s Next Top Model. And that’s only the beginning for this extraordinary talent. Ashley is leading a new generation of women breaking ground and demolishing stereotypes, transforming our ideals about body image and what is fashionable and beautiful. A woman who proves that when it comes to beauty, size is just a number, she is the voice for the body positivity movement today and a role model for all women—no matter their individual body type, shape, or weight. In this collection of insightful, provocative essays illustrated with a dozen photos, Ashley shares her perspective on how ideas around body image are evolving—and how we still have work to do; the fun—and stress—of a career in the fashion world; her life before modeling; and her path to accepting her size without limiting her dreams—defying rigid industry standards and naysayers who told her it couldn’t be done. As she talks about her successes and setbacks, Ashley offers support for every woman coming to terms with who she is, bolster her self-confidence, and motivates her to be her strongest, healthiest, and most beautiful self.

Troublemaker
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • An eye-opening, no-holds-barred memoir about life in the Church of Scientology, now with a new afterword by the author—the outspoken actress and star of the A&E docuseries Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath Leah Remini has never been the type to hold her tongue. That willingness to speak her mind, stand her ground, and rattle the occasional cage has enabled this tough-talking girl from Brooklyn to forge an enduring and successful career in Hollywood. But being a troublemaker has come at a cost. That was never more evident than in 2013, when Remini loudly and publicly broke with the Church of Scientology. Now, in this frank, funny, poignant memoir, the former King of Queens star opens up about that experience for the first time, revealing the in-depth details of her painful split with the church and its controversial practices. Indoctrinated into the church as a child while living with her mother and sister in New York, Remini eventually moved to Los Angeles, where her dreams of becoming an actress and advancing Scientology’s causes grew increasingly intertwined. As an adult, she found the success she’d worked so hard for, and with it a prominent place in the hierarchy of celebrity Scientologists alongside people such as Tom Cruise, Scientology’s most high-profile adherent. Remini spent time directly with Cruise and was included among the guests at his 2006 wedding to Katie Holmes. But when she began to raise questions about some of the church’s actions, she found herself a target. In the end, she was declared by the church to be a threat to their organization and therefore a “Suppressive Person,” and as a result, all of her fellow parishioners—including members of her own family—were told to disconnect from her. Forever. Bold, brash, and bravely confessional, Troublemaker chronicles Leah Remini’s remarkable journey toward emotional and spiritual freedom, both for herself and for her family. This is a memoir designed to reveal the hard-won truths of a life lived honestly—from an author unafraid of the consequences. Praise for Troublemaker “An aggressively honest memoir . . . Troublemaker is the most raw and revealing Scientology memoir to date.”—Entertainment Weekly “Leah’s story is a juicy, inside-Hollywood read, but it’s more than that. It’s a moving story about the value of questioning authority and how one woman survived a profound crisis of faith.”—People

Framing Water
This study addressed media framing of environmental policy in the United States (US) and the effect that popular frames and biases have on public attitudes toward water-related regulations. In recent years, the Clean Water Rule, a proposed change to the 1972 Clean Water Act, generated deep partisan divide over the historically bipartisan law. While hydrological scientists and environmentalists largely considered the Clean Water Rule a crucial policy for effective protection of US waters, the reaction from industry representatives and conservative politicians was swift and furious. Legislative and judicial battles subsequently played out the news. Scholars have demonstrated that the news can influence public opinion on policy issues – particularly on science-based topics such as water policy. To better understand media coverage and its effect on the audience, I developed a two-pronged approach in this thesis. First, using a media content analysis, I examined news coverage of the Clean Water Rule in the most popular online media sources, including partisan websites such as the conservative Breitbart News and the more liberal Huffington Post. In the second step of the approach, I conducted a framing experiment on US-based students. To test the effect that common frames and biases found in the content analysis have on attitudes toward the Clean Water Rule and Clean Water Act, I compared reactions to two opposing news frames– a “pro-environment” frame and an “anti-regulation” frame. Additionally, I examined the influence of personalisation (i.e. attributing the Clean Water Rule to either President Barack Obama or President Donald Trump) on partisan attitudes towards the Rule. This study found that the news media frequently elevates conflict over substance when covering the Clean Water Rule. Furthermore, conflict-driven, negative frames decreased likely support for the Clean Water Rule and the Clean Water Act as a whole. Associating the Rule with either former-President Barack Obama or President Donald Trump seemingly produced a shift in support for the Clean Water Rule/Act that is split on partisan grounds. Conservatives are more likely to support the Rule when it is attributed to Trump than Obama, and liberals are less likely to support the Rule when it is attributed to Trump than any other association.
