If your pet enters an “off-limits” room, the kids come home from school, or a window is shattered, you'll be immediately notified. False alarms due to slight changes in lighting or minor movements such as a houseplant gently ruffled by an air vent, are now a thing of the past! The SmartCam HD Pro's Advanced Motion & Audio Detection recognizes that things like rolling cloud coverage, falling leaves and swaying branches are not key events. You will only be notified, through instant push notifications to your mobile device, of true motion events such as someone entering the room. And in low light conditions, audio detection has you doubly covered listening for loud incidents you should know about.

WDR: Bright light streaming through windows poses no problem for the SmartCam HD Pro. The WDR technology enhances details in backlit conditions to give you a clear view of the outside, while eliminating murky silhouettes in the foreground.

So begins the title poem of this collection for young adults in which Janet S. Wong looks at driving as a metaphor for life. Through thirty-six poems that range in subject from passing the written driver's test and borrowing a car, to parallel parking and being pulled over by a cop, to car accidents and parents' anxieties, the poet succeeds in touching on all the subjects of concern to young people -- love, death, hopes and dreams.
Contemporary, honest, and direct, these poems offer a fresh approach to a subject of deep interest to today's young people.
The 1987 Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama
From August Wilson, author of The Piano Lesson and the 1984-85 Broadway season's best play, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, is another powerful, stunning dramatic work that has won him numerous critical acclaim including the 1987 Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize.

Troy Maxson has gone through life in an America where to be proud and black is to face pressures that could crush a man, body and soul. But the1950s are yielding to the new spirit of liberation in the 1960s... a spirit that is changing the world Troy Maxson has learned to deal with the only way he can...a spirit that is making him a stranger, angry and afraid, in a world he never knew and to a wife and son he understands less and less...

Tsukiyama's graceful prose weaves the details of "the silk work" and Chinese village life into a story of courage and strength.
