Tula Telfair : invented landscapes by Tula Telfair( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tula Telfair's hyper-realistic landscape paintings are at once awe-inspiring and extremely personal. Although vividly detailed, the scenes she depicts are not found in nature; they are conjured from memory and imagination. Informed by her experiences growing up on four continents, Telfair produces fantastical visions with delicate brush strokes and a breathtaking mastery of color and light. Suggestive of waterfalls in Africa, deserts of the American Southwest, and ice floes in Antarctica, Telfair's art draws attention to the power and fragility of nature. Essays by Henry Adams and Michael S. Roth explore the technical and aesthetic aspects of Telfair's work, her personal history, and the interplay between realism and invention

The Whirlabout takes us back to America during the 1950s, when a quarter bought a movie ticket as well as a bag of popcorn, city neighbours gathered on front porches to listen to a ballgame on the radio while kids played in the street and, for an evening out, entire families climbed into their cars to go to the then-new drive-ins.

Changing the Power Balance by Mike Fay( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The reason teachers want collective bargaining is far simpler than has heretofore been recognized by scholars. In de jure collective bargaining, agreements arrived at in the bargaining process are legal and binding on both parties. In de facto negotiation, agreements could be struck between the teachers and the board of education, but, when subjected to political or budgetary pressures, the board could abrogate the agreement without the teachers having any legal recourse. (Author/IRT)

Langoué : a treasure in Gabon( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"During the Mega-transect expedition, led by Wildlife Conservation Society scientist, J. Michael Fay, the team crossed Central Africa in search of the last remaining pristine blocks of forest. On their journey, members found a remarkable site in the heart of Gabon. It is a forest called Langoué, which harbors a wealth of wildlife and extraordinary waterfalls. Langoué's forest also contains a "bai", a saline in a large natural clearing, unique to Gabon. This "bai" is a gathering site for a number of large mammals, such as elephants, gorillas, sitatungas and buffalos which come feed on the rich minerals of the saline. The beautiful images of Langoué's wildlife convey the importance of this site for conservation in the world. The video also alerts us to the urgent need to ensure long lasting protection of this Central African natural paradise, before it disappears under the pressure of uncontrolled development."--Website
