Blue mind : the surprising science that shows how being near, in, on, or under water can make you happier, healthier, more connected and better at what you do

July 29, 2014
Nichols, Wallace J., author.
xviii, 333 pages ; 25 cm
Why do we love water so much? -- Water and the brain : neuroscience and blue mind -- The water premium -- The senses, the body, and "big blue" -- Blue mind at work and play -- Red mind, gray mind, blue mind : the health benefits of water -- Blue unified : connection and water -- Only connect -- A million blue marbles.
There's something about water that attracts and fascinates us. No wonder: it's the most omnipresent substance on Earth and, along with air, the primary ingredient for supporting life. From afar, our planet looks like a blue marble; we ourselves are three-quarters H₂O. We know instinctively that being near water makes us healthier and happier, reduces stress, and brings us peace. But why? And what might the answer tell us about how we should be living our lives? Now, we can finally answer these questions--and those answers are life-changing. As Wallace Nichols reveals here, we are at the forefront of a wave of neuroscience, evolutionary biology, and medical research that illuminates the physiological and brain processes that underlie our transformative connection to water. Drawing on this breakthrough science, and on compelling personal stories from athletes, scientists, veterans, and artists, Nichols shows how proximity to water can: improve performance in a wide range of fields; increase calm and diminish anxiety much better than medication; amplify creativity--artistic and otherwise; increase generosity and compassion; increase professional success; improve our overall health and well-being; and reinforce our connection to the natural world--and one another.--From publisher description.

"The rediscovered Photochrom and Photostint postcard images from the private collection of Marc Walter were produced by the Detroit Photographic Company between 1888 and 1924. Using a photolithographic process that predated the autochrome by nearly 20 years, they offered people the very first color photographs of The United States. Suddenly, the continent's colors were available for all to see. The rich ochres and browns of the Grand Canyon, the dazzle of Atlantic City, became a visual delight not only for eyewitnesses, but for Americans far and wide." -- Publisher.

They help you navigate what to do when faith meets real world challenges. When you take hold of your faith, it's really God's love that takes hold of you.

Cincinnati Art Deco

July 28, 2014
Rolfes, Steven J., author.
127 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm
The Art Deco years -- Union Terminal -- The Netherland Plaza -- The Times-Star building and other Downtown Deco -- Art Deco in the Cincinnati area -- Cincinnati Postwar Modern.
Art Deco, daring and almost defiant in its optimism, reflected the spirit of a restless time. Bursting forth in the midst of the Roaring Twenties, an age when there seemed to be no limits, this new art form was both elegant and modern. Cincinnati is fortunate to have three stunning examples of this unique style: the sophisticated Hilton Netherland Plaza hotel, the overwhelming Cincinnati Times-Star Building, and the Union Terminal. Beyond these giants, the Greater Cincinnati region is studded with many other breathtaking examples of Art Deco, from a water tower decorated with Christmas lights to stunning neighborhood theaters and apartment buildings to mythological creatures guarding a Masonic temple in northern Kentucky. There is no doubt that Art Deco is alive and well in Cincinnati, so grab a hip flask of bathtub gin, put on some Glenn Miller, and explore the elegance and history of Cincinnati Art Deco.

We went back : photographs from Europe 1933-1956 by Chim

July 25, 2014
Young, Cynthia, 1969-
Munich : DelMonico Books, [2013]
304 pages : illustrations (some color) ; 29 cm
Published on the occasion of the exhibition held January 18 - May 5, 2013 at the International Center of Photography.
Director's foreword -- Lives of Chim / Carole Naggar -- We went back: Photographs from Europe 1933-1956 by Chim / Cynthia Young -- Actual Responsibility / Roger Cohen -- Plates -- Publication history.
"Born Dawid Szymin in Warsaw, Chim began his career in the early 1930s photographing for leftist magazines in Paris. In 1936, one of these magazines, Regards, sent him to the front lines of the civil war in Spain, along with comrades Robert Capa and Gerda Taro. Although war formed the backdrop of much of his reportage, Chim was an astute observer of 20th-century European politics, social life, and culture, from the beginnings of the antifascist struggle to the rebuilding of countries ravaged by World War II. Like millions of other Europeans, Chim had suffered the pain of dislocation and the loss of family in a concentration camp. His profound empathy for his subjects is evident in his postwar work on child refugees. In this volume, Chim emerges as both a talented reporter and a creator of elegant compositions of startling grace and beauty. The book places Chim's work within the broader context of 1930s-1950s photography and European politics"-- Provided by publisher.

This catalogue presents over fifty works in different media - most notably sculpture, painting and ceramics - assembled together for the first time to convey the impressive variety of Japanese art from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. These works, all masterpieces from the collection of the Tokyo National Museum, introduce the museum's astounding holdings of modern Japanese art to a Western audience and help illustrate where modern works fit within the rich history of Japanese visual tradition. Engaging essays by noted scholars explore the diverse sources of influence for Japanese artists around the turn of the 20th century, such as Western oil painting, Buddhist portraiture, European porcelain, traditional Japanese landscape and figure imagery, and Chinese painting. This publication offers a compelling and innovative conception of modern Japanese art, framing artists as creators of traditions for the modern age who maintained a sense of continuity with the past while also integrating wide-ranging cultural inspirations.

But it was also a period racked by controversy in academics, recruiting, and physical brutality that, in combination, threatened football's very existence. A vivid storyteller, Revsine brings it all to life in a captivating narrative. --
