An Archeologist's Story of Domestic Abuse

He and Him is an autobiography dealing with both psychology and archaeology in the author's life. He was born during the Great Depression. His parents were an Ohio .farmerette and a man from the Tennessee mountains who had become an alcoholic on moonshine whiskey. It was a dysfunctional family from the start. The mom soon developed very serious emotional problems apparently because she wasn't satisfied with the man whom she had married. When the author was a six-year-old boy she told him that she planned to take him and leave his dad. However, she did the exact opposite and had more kids. Upon adding more offspring to the household; the author, then seven years old, became the victim of terrible physical and emotional abuse, as well as complete neglect. From the age of seven the author had to essentially raise himself. He tried to avoid his parents as much as possible by spending his days in the fields and meadows by himself collecting butterflies, pretty rocks, and looking for prehistoric Indian arrowheads. After finding a few Indian arrowheads on farms in Ohio he started a collection of Indian arrowheads and other artifacts at a very young age. His collection eventually turned into a very renowned private museum as he got a little older. When the author was almost thirteen years old his parents quit farming and started operating their own country store in a different community. Chapter 3 in this book describes life in country stores in Ohio during the 1940s and 1950s. The author lived in such a country store environment until he turned eighteen and went away to college. He was the first of any of his relatives to ever go away to college. His mother furnished him money to attend college, but he did it completely on his own with absolutely no family encouragement or support to get a degree. From "the time that the author started getting educated his mom refused to ever call him by his given name. She only referred to him as either "He or Him." Others in the family soon became full of covetousness towards him because they perceived that he had advantages which they didn't have. Competitive jealousy of others in the household mounted, their believinq that they had to try to outdo the educated member of the family. A long, drawn-out, bitter family war against the author ensued. Disrespect for the author's higher education continued in later years by not only the third generation, but also by in-laws who didn't even know the author when he was in college! After receiving both a BS degree and an MA degree in geology, with a master's thesis dealing with archaeology of Archaic Indian sites near his hometown, the author took a temporary summer job as a national park ranger at Canyon de Chelly National Monument at Chinle, Arizona. Canyon de Chelly is located in the center of the vast Navajo Indian Reservation. Getting to live and work in such a beautiful natural area was like a dream come true. That first summers work at Canyon de Chelly motivated the author to eventually work as a seasonal park ranger in six other national parks and monuments. After working at Canyon de Chelly for one summer , the author ended up going back to Arizona where he lived for ten more years. He married a woman in Kansas who he hardly even knew, then he went to the University of Arizona where he spent two years working towards a PhD degree. After that, he and his wife spent eight more years back on the Navajo Indian Reservation. During those years on the reservation he taught Navajo Indian children on a substitute teaching certificate. It was a full-time job in the winter. Almost all of his students were Navajo Indians. He taught all grade levels from kindergarten through high school. Chapters 6, 7, and 8 of this book are devoted to stories about life in remote areas of the reservation in the 1960s and 1970s. At that time the author's doctor and grocery stores were 145 miles from where he lived. There we

„Am 20. April 1999 betraten Dylan Klebold und Eric Harris ausgerüstet mit Gewehren und Sprengstoff die Columbine Highschool. Dort töteten sie zwölf Schüler und einen Lehrer, verletzten vierundzwanzig weitere Menschen und nahmen sich dann selbst das Leben. Es war der schlimmste Schul-Amoklauf der Geschichte. Dylan Klebold war mein Sohn.“ 16 Jahre nach dem Amoklauf ihres Sohnes Dylan erzählt Sue Klebold von ihrem Ringen mit der Frage, ob sie die Tat hätte verhindern können, wenn sie nur aufmerksamer, liebevoller gewesen wäre. Sue Klebold ist durch die Hölle gegangen, aber an der Tat ihres Sohnes nicht zerbrochen. Sie hat einen Weg gefunden weiterzuleben und hofft, anderen Eltern zu helfen, das zu verhindern, was sie selbst nicht aufhalten konnte. Von einem ist sie fest überzeugt: Elterliche Liebe allein reicht nicht aus, um Kinder und Jugendliche vor den Folgen unerkannter psychischer Erkrankungen zu schützen. Ein starkes Memoir einer Mutter, der das Unvorstellbare passiert ist. Sue Klebold spendet alle Einnahmen an Forschung und Hilfsorganisationen für Opfer und Angehörige psychisch Kranker.

Spiritual Insights from Latter-Day Saints about Same-sex Attraction

Publisher: Century Pub


Category: Homosexuality

Page: 211

View: 7206

Help for Those who Struggle with Unwanted Homosexual Problems This book represents a small collection of personal essays from members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who have personally witnessed the significance of same-sex attraction (SSA) in their own lives or in the life of someone they love. The essays in this book detail the insights and experiences of LDS men and women who desire to follow the gospel when caught in the tug of war between obeying Christ's commandments or pursuing homosexual behavior. These stories speak of real charity--the essence of the gospel of Jesus Christ--and compassion given by the rescuing hands of Christ and his followers. This book was compiled with one heartfelt desire: to grant comfort and insights to the many, many thousands of Latter-day Saints who feel alone and desperate in their struggles with same-sex attraction. You are not alone in your struggle. You hold a very important place in God's kingdom. A secondary motive of this book is to invoke greater compassion from all Church members toward their brothers and sisters with same-sex attraction. The editors attempted to underscore two main themes in this work. First, SSA (or any trial in life) does not have to rob us of life's happiness; we can all find inner happiness, even when we are human and struggling. Second, developing a personal relationship with God and Jesus Christ is critical to our inner happiness; peace comes from God's presence instead of adversity's absence. Twenty-four authors contributed the book's twenty-six essays. Fourteen essays use the author's real name; twelve use pseudonyms. Essay demographics: 15 essays by men with SSA, 2 essays by women with SSA, 4 essays by spouses, 3 essays by parents, and 2 essays by friends about someone with SSA.

A Latina in the Land of Hollywood and Other Essays on Media Culture

From ads for Victoria's Secret to the character roles of Rosie Perez, the mass media have been defining race and femininity. In this diverse set of essays, Angharad N. Valdivia breaks theoretical and methodological boundaries by exploring the relationship of the media to various audiences. Throughout A Latina in the Land of Hollywood we are challenged to think differently about the media messages we often unconsciously consume, such as the popular representations of certain Latina cultural icons. Valdivia shows how reporters focus on Guatemalan activist Rigoberta Menchœ's big smile, Brazilian media magnate Xuxa's blonde hair, and Puerto Rican actress Rosie Perez's high-pitched voice, never quite creating a comprehensive portrayal of these women. In her discussion of lingerie catalogs, Valdivia uncovers a similarly skewed depiction. The lush, high-class bedrooms of Victoria's Secret differ as much from the earthy, spare world of Frederick's of Hollywood as the types, sizes, and uses of the lingerie that the two companies sell. Valdivia takes a look at family films, arguing that single mothers are almost always portrayed as either trampy floozies or sexless, hapless women, whereas single dads fare much better. Whether examining one teenager's likes and dislikes or considering single parenthood in family films, Valdivia investigates how popular culture has become the arena in which we struggle to know ourselves and to make ourselves known. She calls for scholars to move beyond investigating implicit themes in films and media to studying the ways that audiences of different colors, ages, genders, and sexual preferences might understand or misunderstand such cultural messages. A Latina in the Land of Hollywood aims to explode traditional discussions of media and popular culture. It is a must-read for anyone interested in popular culture, television, and film.

Navajo Infancy

An Ethological Study of Child Development

View: 5390

"Navajo Infancy" describes the major sources of change and continuity in Navajo infant development. It does so by combining concepts and methods of classical ethology with those of social-cultural anthropology. The goal is to establish the relationships between human nature and culture. Buy considering the nature of adaptation, and the evolution of human developmental patterns, and through analyses of the determinants of change and continuity in Navajo infant development, "Navajo Infancy" outlines how the process of development itself may bridge nature and culture. With its special focus on the effect of the cradleboard on Navajo mother-infant interaction, Navajo Infancy raises important developmental issues in its analyses of why the eff ects of the cradleboard do not last. Incorporating the Brazelton Neonatal Behavioral Assessment Scale into its ethological-anthropological methods, "Navajo Infancy" demonstrates signifi cant Navajo-Anglo-American differences in newborn temperament. It fi nds a strong correlation between newborn behavior and prenatal environmental factors, arguing that racial and ethnic differences in behavior at birth go well beyond simple gene pool differences. "Navajo Infancy" also describes the individual and group differences in the development of Navajo and Anglo- American children's fear of strangers and patterns of mother-infant interaction. Aspects of attachment theory, transactional theories of development, and anthropological theories of socialization are related to this broad new evolutionary approach to the process of development and nature-culture interaction. "James S. Chisholm" is professor at the school of Anatomy and Human Biology at the University of Western Australia. His research interests include Biological and Biosocial Anthropology. He is the author of "Death, Hope, and Sex and Cultural Persistence: Continuity in Meaning and Moral Responsibility Among the Bear Lake Athapaskans" (with S. Rushforth).
