Paper Dragon by Summary

Everybody says I look good on paper. I was adopted into the Winslow dragon clan, with their boatloads of status and wealth. I’m built like a superhero. I have loyal friends and a thriving surveillance business. Only, there’s so much more to my story. My parents are hellbent on mating me to a high society dragon. But the truth is I’m damaged goods. I’m twenty-nine, and my dragon form is stuck in adolescence. I have no wings, I’m afraid to use my magic, and not even my best friend knows I’ve never had a lover. Before I can consider marriage, I need to get back to the Ukrainian orphanage and figure out what the hell happened to me when I was a kid. But nothing’s ever simple. The orphanage sits dead center in the Transcarpathian Mountains--and any Magical who dares approach risks losing their powers to the Dragon King. Can I find the answers that release my wings, or will I become just another sacrifice to the Dragon King’s insatiable appetite? ◆◆◆ Paper Dragon is the first book in the Shifters in the Underlands series, which is set in the same universe as the Sister Witches Urban Fantasy Series and the Calliope Jones novels. The reading order is: ◆ Paper Dragon ◆ Blood Dragon ◆ Moon Dragon

Raggedy Ann and the Paper Dragon - Illustrated by Johnny Gruelle by Johnny Gruelle Summary

'Raggedy Ann and the Paper Dragon' is written and illustrated by Johnny Gruelle. Gruelle (1880 - 1930), was an American artist and political cartoonist, as well as a children's book illustrator and author. The books of 'The Raggedy Ann Series' all feature their central protagonist, with red yarn for hair and a triangle nose - charting her considerable adventures. Gruelle created Raggedy Ann for his daughter, Marcella, when she brought him an old hand-made rag doll. He drew a face on it, and from his bookshelf, pulled a book of poems by James Whitcomb Riley, combining the names of two poems, 'The Raggedy Man' and 'Little Orphant Annie.' From this moment on, the much-loved children's series went from strength to strength. Sought after by collectors, this re-printed edition showcases Gruelle's original text, further enhanced by his wonderful colour drawings, in order that the two may be fully appreciated by young and old alike.

Paper Dragons by Walden Bello Summary

Emerging relatively unscathed from the banking crisis of 2008, China has been viewed as a model of both rampant success and fiscal stability. But beneath the surface lies a network of fissures that look likely to erupt into the next big financial crash. A bloated real-estate sector, roller-coaster stock market, and rapidly growing shadow-banking sector have all coalesced to create a perfect storm: one that is in danger of taking the rest of the world's economy with it. Walden Bello traces our recent history of financial crises – from the bursting of Japan's 'bubble economy' in 1990 to Wall Street in 2008 – taking in their political and human ramifications such as rising inequality and environmental degradation. He not only predicts that China might be the site of the next crash, but that under neoliberalism this will simply keep happening. The only way that we can stop this cycle, Bello argues, is through a fundamental change in the ways that we organise: a shift to cooperative enterprise, respectful of the environment, and which fractures the twin legacies of imperialism and capitalism. Insightful, erudite and passionate, Paper Dragons is a must-read for anyone wishing to prevent the next financial meltdown.

Mathematical Problem Solving and New Information Technologies by Joao P. Ponte,Joao F. Matos,Jose M. Matos,Domingos Fernandes Summary

A strong and fluent competency in mathematics is a necessary condition for scientific, technological and economic progress. However, it is widely recognized that problem solving, reasoning, and thinking processes are critical areas in which students' performance lags far behind what should be expected and desired. Mathematics is indeed an important subject, but is also important to be able to use it in extra-mathematical contexts. Thinking strictly in terms of mathematics or thinking in terms of its relations with the real world involve quite different processes and issues. This book includes the revised papers presented at the NATO ARW "Information Technology and Mathematical Problem Solving Research", held in April 1991, in Viana do Castelo, Portugal, which focused on the implications of computerized learning environments and cognitive psychology research for these mathematical activities. In recent years, several committees, professional associations, and distinguished individuals throughout the world have put forward proposals to renew mathematics curricula, all emphasizing the importance of problem solving. In order to be successful, these reforming intentions require a theory-driven research base. But mathematics problem solving may be considered a "chaotic field" in which progress has been quite slow.

DOLLSPEL by Cozette Stacy Nowak Summary

Uniqueness. You are holding it in your hands. Open DOLLSPEL, this most unusual series of enrichment essays, to find a childhood favorite, the iconic Raggedy Ann (Andy, too), contributing ably to adult sensibilities. The moppet muse "comes alive" for the author in order to share her precepts and induce reflective thoughts on eight topics of substantive interest to grown-ups. This simple-to-sublime literary route allows any-aged adult to see that things often go awry for us because we lose sight of the simplest attributes learned in our youth, especially kindness and goodness. Pronounced correctly, DOLLSPEL sounds like gospel, which is a huge clue as to the content. Raggedy softness, brightness and whimsey once made us feel good. Within these pages, Raggedy wisdom attempts to help us do good, making our world a more welcoming and more beautiful place, where we can all live together harmoniously.

There he finds out he is about to transcend the ages and risk his life to prevent the destruction of mankind.

There, Draconos, a dragon, befriends the boy, training him in the art of warfare. From this day forward, the young boy finds himself in awe at the wonders the world holds for him. Not only has Draig become a man, but he is living like a dragon and learning their mystical powers. “From the time Man first crawled upon this earth…we found him worthy to take his rightful place among the creatures that walk upon the earth. While hiding in the shadows, we have protected him. We have nurtured him all these many ages. But now man grows in great numbers and makes war on everything he sees.” And when the time comes, will Draig be willing to lay down his life for the sake of saving the dragons? And when the dragons are gone, where will he go? He is no longer just a man.

Fall of the Dragons by James A. Owen Summary

For some men, walking the path of their destiny may take two thousand years. But for others, it may only be a journey of a single night. In the third book of the Age of Dragons series, the journey continues through the fantastical world of beloved fantasy, where dragons are real, and dreams—and nightmares—come true. On a September evening in 1931, John and Jack, two of the Caretakers of the Imaginarium Geographica, discover a plea for help on an ancient medieval parchment—which is not only addressed to them, but seems to have been written by their friend, Hugo Dyson. Before they can discover the origin of this strange book, Hugo walks through a door in time and vanishes into the past. And just like that, the world begins to change. The only hope to restore the proper order of things lies in a forgotten island at the edge of the Archipelago, where a time travel device left by Jules Verne must be used to race through history. But even if all of the legendary Caretakers from past and present are able to answer the oldest mystery in the world and save Hugo, there may be darker forces gathering against them with a greater crisis at hand. The last stones are falling from the Keep of Time, and an old enemy in a new form has acquired a terrible weapon: the Spear of Destiny, which can be used to command the shadows of anything it touches—even the Dragons. The Shadow King, combined with forces of a new enemy, may be unstoppable now. The only hope is Rose Dyson, the Grail Child. She may be the only one to assist the companions on their desperate quest and find the only weapon capable of defeating their enemies.

Intellectual Property Protection of Traditional Cultural Expressions by Luo Li Summary

The work reviews issues concerning the protection of folklore through the intellectual property legal system, then explores two main issues in the protection of Chinese folklore. The first issue is the influence of Chinese traditional culture on the Chinese intellectual property legal system and Chinese society. The second concerns the deficiencies of the Chinese intellectual property system with regard to folklore. Both issues are examined through a survey on the weak public recognition of intellectual property law and folklore in Chinese society. The book also reveals the practical issues that have arisen in Southwest China through case studies. After analysing these issues, the work designs a model law specifically for folklore and also provides suggestions for how the current intellectual property legal system could establish a comprehensive legal protection system for folklore. Furthermore, the work shows that its proposed model law is effective in practice by resolving the issues in the case studies presented.

Hostage on the Yangtze by Malcolm Murfett Summary

In 1949, as the Chinese Civil War was about to enter its final, explosive stage, the small British frigate HMS Amethyst was sent on a dangerous mission up the Yangtze River to protect British citizens in Nanking. En route it was attacked by the Chinese Communists and held hostage on the river for several months before the crew managed to make a daring escape. The 'Amethyst' captured news headlines around the world and became an unlikely symbol of the cold war in Asia. This dramatic episode, hailed in the West as a triumph of the human spirit but bitterly condemned by the Chinese Communists, was to prejudice Anglo-Chinese relations for years to come. Using sources not previously available, Malcolm Murfett has written a book that is much more than an account of a single incident. It provides a sweeping survey of British naval power in China, from its faltering and inept beginnings in the late 1630s right up to the establishment of the People's Republic in 1949. In explaining the importance of the Amethyst episode in the history of Anglo-Chinese naval relations, Murfett suggests that it was the final poignant break with the past. Readers will find Hostage on the Yangtze to be a fascinating tale of high adventure, imperialistic oppression, diplomatic shortcomings, and political repercussions - a mixture that culminates in one of the most dramatic and memorable crises of the post-war world.
