This book is based on the experiences of a dealer in stolen goods (alias Sam Goodman), whose history serves as a model for understanding the role that fences play in today's society. Steffensmeier provides a detailed analysis of how a fence develops relationships with thieves, customers, and other fences, how prices are set and negotiated, the profits derived, and the skills required for the job, and the meaning and rewards of fencing. Steffensmeier relates the potential consequences: the events surrounding Sam's eventual arrest and conviction for receiving stolen property. Sociologists, criminologists, law enforcement officers, and public policy makers will find this an book enlightening and engaging portrayal of the criminal career.

Over 42 million adults struggle with chronic loneliness, if you are one of them, this book will offer you some instant relief! As of 2017, approximately 42.6 million adults over age 45 struggle with feelings of chronic loneliness. Twenty-five percent of the population lives alone, and over 50% of the population is unmarried. Results from a recent study of 300,000 participants prove that individuals with weak or non-existent social connections actually increase their risk of early death by up to 50%. As a result of these shocking statistics, more social outreach programs have been put in place to help conquer this nearly-imminent worldwide loneliness epidemic. Since life began, we have had a strong sense of belonging. Whether to a small family or a large community group, this fundamental need powerfully affects our mental and physical health. However, even if we interact with co-workers all day, surround ourselves with a large family, and are in a decades-long marriage, we can still feel very alone. With the click of a button or the help of social media, within seconds we are provided with more opportunities than ever before; among these opportunities are thousands of ways to connect to fellow human beings. Logically we know that reaching out for help is key in combatting this deep and pervasive feeling, yet we don't do it. Why? Typically, we dislike admitting to ourselves and others that we feel lonely for fear we may appear unlikeable and vulnerable. Moreover, we have been conditioned as a society to not show our feelings. Instead, we try to ignore our uncomfortable thoughts and emotions, hoping they will go away on their own. They usually don't. Consequently, we feel anxious and rejected as if a fence separates us from the popular crowd, thereby allowing us to secretly obsess over our perceived defects. Despite all of us having an innate need to connect with our fellow humans, the degree of that need varies. For example, you may feel lonely when not around other people. On the other hand, I may feel completely exhausted when I am. Yet, despite our individual differences, our DNA strands are programmed to satisfy our need for belonging, whatever our unique need is. Perhaps you feel that you are not really lonely, just socially selective. Find out via the included questionnaire. Then, to help you combat loneliness, the personal insights from these authors will help provide you with hope and inspiration; the tools they used to guide themselves out of the emotional quicksand and just may be the life jacket you've been searching for. Whether down the street or across the world, you are truly never alone because also inside of this book, are the ways in which you can reach out to each author individually for continued support.

"People turn their heads when I walk past them. They know where I’m going. My feet almost stumble on the uneven pavement of the cobblestoned street when I sense Mark’s gaze on me. This is the only time he takes notice of me, and it’s for a reason I wish didn’t exist. All the other times I want him to see me, his eyes skip right over me. I’m a wolf in sheep’s clothes to these people. A potential threat. I already know what will happen once I get to the Clinic. I’ll have to talk to that clueless psychiatrist so he can measure my possibly violent tendencies. Because that stigma has been on me ever since I turned twelve and the person I loved most in the whole wide world was Purged from this city. My name is Sarah, and my father was a violence offender." Return to the world of the Island series and meet Sarah, resident of Dartmoor City. She's bitter, she feels trapped, and she wants nothing more than to venture beyond the fence that's keeping her in. She just has no idea how to. But when she discovers a secret that President Jacob would rather keep under wraps, Sarah is forced to make a move for freedom - because she meets a guy who is even more of a prisoner than she is, and he desperately needs her help. keywords: dystopian, young adult

Finally take control of your anxiety without medication so your anxiety stops controlling you! Per the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), anxiety affects over 2 billion adults worldwide and over 97 million in the United States alone, of which an estimated 54% of these are women. ​ The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry stated that anxiety treatment costs are over $42 billion per year in the United States. Of this, $23 billion is for repetitive healthcare services due to symptoms which mimic physical illnesses, such as heart attacks. Compared to non-anxious individuals, those with an anxiety disorder are 5X more likely to go to the doctor, and 6X more likely to be hospitalized for psychiatric disorders. Currently, anxiety is the #1 mental health concern in North America. Each year, more than 4 billion prescriptions are filled in the United States alone, of which Paxil and Zoloft are two of the top prescribed medications. Due to lack of medical insurance or funds, many people self-medicate with street drugs and / or alcohol. In fact, 42% of those who struggle with anxiety use recreational drugs. There are many forms of anxiety, of which each affects millions of people:​ Generalized Anxiety Disorder: 6.8 million, in which women are 2X more likely to be afflicted with than men. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder: 2.2 million, which is equally common in both men and women. Panic Disorder: 6 million, in which women are 2X more likely to be afflicted with than men. This often co-exists with depression. Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): 7.7 million, in which women are more afflicted. Social Anxiety Disorder: 15 million, which is equally common in both men and women. If you answer "yes" to most items on the included questionnaire, it's likely you could be clinically-diagnosed with anxiety. ​ The bad news is that symptoms don't disappear when ignored. The good news is that with the right help you can regain control of your life, enjoy more fulfilling relationships, find your authenticity, reconnect with your passions, reach goals, express yourself more freely, experience more stable work environments, increase your academic success, break free from addictions, and even have strong spirituality. And that is why this book exists.

The Fence and the Bridge is about the development of the Canada-US border-security relationship as an outgrowth of the much lengthier Canada-US relationship. It suggests that this relationship has been both highly reflexive and hegemonic over time, and that such realities are embodied in the metaphorical images and texts that describe the Canada-US border over its history. Nicol argues that prominent security motifs, such as themes of free trade, illegal immigration, cross-border crime, terrorism, and territorial sovereignty are not new, nor are they limited to the post-9/11 era. They have developed and evolved at different times and become part of a larger quilt, whose patches are stitched together to create a new fabric and design. Each of the security motifs that now characterize Canada-US border perceptions and relations has a precedent in border-management strategies and border relations in earlier periods. In some cases, these have deep historical roots that date back not just years or decades but centuries. They are part of an evolving North American geopolitical logic that inscribes how borders are perceived, how they function, and what they mean.

A growing number of Americans, many of them retirees, are migrating to Mexico's beach resorts, border towns, and picturesque heartland. While considerable attention has been paid to Mexicans who immigrate to the U.S., the reverse scenario receives little scrutiny. Shifting the traditional lens of North American migration, The Other Side of the Fence takes a fascinating look at a demographic trend that presents significant implications for the United States and Mexico. The first in-depth account of this trend, Sheila Croucher's study describes the cultural, economic, and political lives of these migrants of privilege. Focusing primarily on two towns, San Miguel de Allende in the mountains and Ajijic along the shores of Lake Chapala, Croucher depicts the surprising similarities between immigrant populations on both sides of the border. Few Americans living in Mexico are fluent in the language of their new land, and most continue to practice the culture and celebrate the national holidays of their homeland, maintaining close political, economic, and social ties to the United States while making political demands on Mexico, where they reside. Accessible, timely, and brimming with eye-opening, often ironic, findings, The Other Side of the Fence brings an important perspective to borderlands debates.

God has acted and Jesus has acted ... but what are we doing? Jesus wants us to act. That is one of the insights in this book of devotions that William P. “Buddy” Nelson wrote during the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to stay in touch with his faith and to reimagine the future of the church. While writing, he discovered that when living through a pandemic—or a crisis of any kind—God is there to provide a refreshed understanding of His revelation. In fact, God’s message is exactly what we all need to hear in times of personal or professional crisis. While these devotions highlight numerous topics and challenges, the overarching theme focuses on how everyday events can help us understand God’s Word. In doing so, we can learn how to face and overcome challenges with faith rather than fear. Remember when the world is at its darkest place, God challenges his children to shine the brightest!

This collection of essays reflects the personal experience of a Ukrainian intellectual engaged, since his Soviet-time youth, in a painstaking but fascinating process of the both cultural and political ‘Europeanization’ of his country. The title refers, ironically, to the notorious Chancellor Metternich’s quip that Asia presumably begins at the eastern fence of his garden (or, as another apocryphal version maintains, at the eastern end of the Viennese Landstrasse). This is a story of both exclusion and inclusion, of walls and fences, but also of a longing for freedom and a quest for solidarity. It is a book on different ways of being a ‘European’—at both the collective and individual level,—despite various challenges or, perhaps, thanks to them.

There is a perversion of the American Dream that says greed is good, and that we should live, love, work, and advance inside the fences drawn by politics, religion, and laws. It is wrong. Through senseless inner-city death, the My Lai massacre, the taking of the Pueblo, a drug-addled return from Vietnam, and a trip across the United States with a Frisbee, the authors tell how The American Dream is still reachable, but you have to get out beyond the fences to find it. This book shows how two people did it.

Prepared by the Environmental Technology Evaluation Center (EvTEC), a CERF Innovation Center. This verification report describes a field evaluation of the installation of a silt fence using the Tommy? Silt Fence Static Slicing Method and compares this method to traditional trenching methods. The slicing method has been used extensively over the past few years but has not undergone a true field application test by a third party. State Departments of Transportation and federal, state, and local environmental regulatory agencies have expressed a desire and, in some cases, a need, for baseline environmental data providing a general picture of performance and feasibility of the Tommy Slicing Method for silt fence installation and erosion control.
