Preteen Boys

Sexting – Keeping Children Safe

Section III

(xii) Sexting

“Sexting”, the term that refers to preteens and teens sharing nude photos of themselves via cell phones, emails or on the Web, is illegal and could land the perpetrator in serious trouble with the law. This could include jail time and could carry the stigma of being a child molester well into adulthood. The practice can also have serious mental effects on young people so preteens, teens and adults must think seriously and consider the possible consequences before they push the send button on whatever device they are using. Taking, sending and receiving nude and/or semi nude pictures of a child is against the law. Whether the intension is innocent or not and even if the perpetrator is a minor the law is not grey; it is black. and white so far as current statutes are concerned. Sexting is considered to be child pornography and is one of the most dangerous communication medium on the web today. The admonition to preteens and teens seem to be going on deaf ears, perhaps because of peer pressure or the need to be popular. Parents are particularly challenged in this specific arena since one misstep on the part of their precious child could put him/her in jail with the added stigma of being branded a child molester even though the perpetrator may be a child. Certain terms such as doing jail time and child molester may seem repetitious. This is intentional and is meant to impress on the reader the seriousness of actions pertaining to Sexting.

Look at the following cases and consider if you would like to be caught up in this dilemma:

  • Three teenage girls in a town in Pennsylvania who sent nude photos of themselves via cell phones to three male classmates have all been charged with participating in child pornography. The girls were charged with manufacturing and disseminating child pornography and the boys were charged with possessing it.
  • In Wisconsin, a 17 year old boy was charged with child pornography after posting nude pictures of his 16 year old girlfriend on the internet.

The National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy recently published a study suggesting one in five teens had sent or posted images of themselves in various stages of undress. Another disturbing factor is that 15% of those involved in Sexting have sent nude photos of themselves to people they only met on the Internet. The craze is not relegated to the United States alone. According to Reuters in London, “A growing number of British teenagers are swapping sexually explicit images of themselves on mobile phones leaving them open to bullying and victimization by their peers…”

This phenomenon is so wide spread that teens may be caught up in its web unintentionally. The long range effects on perpetrators and victims, beside the current laws and possible consequences are far reaching and cannot possible be analyzed and evaluated by the immature minds of our preteens and teens. I recently warned my grandson that he must separate himself immediately from anyone involved in Sexting no matter how enticing looking at pictures of a naked girl or boy may be.

Consider the following case and think critically before you push the send button on whatever devise you are using.

  • A teen age girl sent nude pictures of herself to her boyfriend with whom she was very much “in love”. A few months later they broke up. The boyfriend was angry over the break up and to get back at his former girlfriend, sent the nude pictures all over the Internet. He is currently facing a considerable time in prison for distributing child pornography in addition to being branded a child molester until age 43. We can only imagine the embarrassment and long term effects this will have on the hapless teenage girl whose nude pictures can be archived and disseminated “ad infinitum” (indefinitely).

Sexting is always a bad idea and must be discarded as soon as it comes to mind or as soon as someone makes the suggestion.

This article is not intended as a source of legal advice but only as suggestions, tips and ideas on keeping our children safe in this world in which we live:

Sexting is Illegal: Do not take or send nude or sexually suggestive photos of yourself or anyone else. If you do, you could be charged with producing or distributing child pornography. If you keep them on your phone or computer you could be charged with possession. If they go to someone in another state, it’s a federal felony.

Non-legal consequences: Consider the emotional damage that can come from having intimate photos of yourself go to a friend who can become an ex-friend and send it to everyone you know.

Any Medium: Sexting can be done on any media-sharing device or technology – including email and the Web. Teens have been convicted for child porn distribution for emailing sexually explicit photos to each other.

Reasons for Sexting: In some cases, children are responding to pressure in a form of cyber bullying or pressure from a boyfriend or girlfriend (they break up, and sometimes those photos get sent around out of revenge). Sometimes it’s impulsive behavior, flirting, or even blackmail. It’s always a bad idea.

Parents: Talk with your children about Sexting in a relaxed setting. Ask them what they know about it. Express how you feel in a conversational, non-confrontational way. A two-way dialog can go a long way toward helping your children understand how to minimize legal, social and reputation risks.

Tips for Parents:

  • If your children have sent any nude pictures of themselves, make sure they stop immediately. Explain that they’re at risk of being charged with producing and distributing child pornography. If they have received nude photos, ask if they have sent them to anyone else Try to contain the damage and tell them to delete the images from their phones and/or computers. Also tell them to transmit the message to the friends to whom they have sent the images.
  • Continue to engage them in conversation. Stay calm and be supportive. Learn as much as you can and try to determine the origins of the behavior such as if it were impulsive behavior, teen flirting or some form of harassment.
  • Consider talking with other teens and parents involved, based on what you’ve learned.
  • Some experts advise that you report the photo to your local police, but consider that, while intending to protect your child, you could incriminate another – and possibly your own child. It is usually good to talk to children and their parents first. If malice or criminal intent is involved, you may want to consult a lawyer, the police, or other experts on the law in your jurisdiction, but be aware of the possibility that child-pornography charges could be filed against anyone involved.

Teens:

  • If a Sexting photo arrives on your phone, first, do not send it to anyone else (that could be considered distribution of child pornography). Second: Talk to a parent or trusted adult. Tell them the full story so they know how to support you. And do not become alarmed if that adult decides to talk with the parents of others involved – that could be the best way to keep all of you from getting into serious trouble.
  • If the picture is from a friend or someone you know, then someone needs to talk to that friend so he or she knows Sexting is against the law. You’re actually doing the friend a big favor because of the serious trouble that can happen if the police get involved.
  • If the photos keep coming, you and a parent might have to speak with your friend’s parents, school authorities or the police.

These tips and suggestions are not exhaustive and parents should use common sense in dealing with these issues. Seek legal advice if you think your child is culpable and could be charged with being involved in child pornography.

Oneida - Preteen Weaponry


Oneida – Preteen Weaponry


$14.74


After a dalliance with applying economical song structures to their trademark organ pulsations on recent efforts–THE WEDDING and HAPPY NEW YEAR–PRETEEN WEAPONRY marks a return to roots for Brooklyn's Oneida: roots that lie somewhere between certain defined genres–Noise, Kraut, Dub, Psych, Drone, Stoner Metal, and Folk all pop up here–and some other zone entirely. The first of a trilogy entitled THANK YOUR PARENTS, the album contains three epic tracks that–although demarcated with breaks–run continuously into each other. Less a set of songs than a series of movements beautifully framed by Barry London's fluid mix, it has a shifting, organic quality that will keep even the most attention-challenged listener engaged. "Part 1" finds frenetic Kid Millions' avant-jazz drum fills giving way to a growling Hawkwind-like riff that evolves into a meditative folk guitar and wurlitzer tandem before a gaping tape distortion swallows everything whole. "Part 2" features eruptions of dub-noise and a hypnotic bass groove that foreground the album's lone vocal. "Part 3" has an uplifting Kraut drive that eventually dissipates into oscillating Moog leads and the kind of blurping organ lines that Fat Bobby has long made his calling card. Nine albums and over 10 years in, Oneida remain peerless in turning deeply psychedelic experimentalism into accessible, killer rock & roll.

Publishers: Min-Kyong Kim; Hae-Young Lee. Soon after forming in 2007, the nine-member girl pop band Girls' Generation became one of the most popular K-pop groups in Korea, releasing chart-topping singles and a hugely successful debut album. After their 2010 follow-up, Oh!, they expanded their reach to Japan, becoming quite popular there as well. By the time of 2011's The Boys, the group had set its sights on the American market. The album is teeming with singalong hooks, uptempo dance tracks, the occasional empowerment ballad, and strong vocals from all nine members, with a straight pop radio feel and quite a few tracks that would work well in a club setting. Mostly the album is preteen fantasy fodder with songs about dream boys, perfect loves, and super-sweet, super-nice things delivered with a feather-light touch and the occasional moment of inspiration. Balanced with these moments are the times (like on "My J" or "Sunflower") when the backing tracks barely rise about karaoke levels and threaten to sink the album entirely. On the whole, though, the well-crafted, propulsive club tracks like "Telepathy," "Trick," and "Mr. Taxi" carry the day and the album ends up being a bunch of fun. The best track, "The Boys," sounds as good as anything on pop radio in 2012 and shows that when they are firing on all cylinders, Girls' Generation have what it takes to conquer the world of pop. ~ Tim Sendra

On Becoming Preteen Wise: Parenting Your Child from 8-12 Years (Paperback)


On Becoming Preteen Wise: Parenting Your Child from 8-12 Years (Paperback)


$11.02


"The middle years, eight to twelve years of age, are perhaps the most significant attitude-forming period in the life of a child. It is during this time that the roots of moral character are established. From the foundation that is formed, healthy or not-so-healthy family relationships will be built. These are the years when patterns of behavior are firmly established patterns that will impact your parent-child relationship for decades to come. Rightly meeting the small challenges of the middle years significantly reduces the likelihood of big challenges in the teen years. In other words, the groundwork you lay during your childs middle years will forever impact your relationship even long after he or she is grown. Included are discussions related to the eight major transitions of middle years children including how to create a family-dependent and not a peer-dependent child. How to lead by your relational influence and not by coercive authority. What discipline methods work and what methods do not work and how to recognize if your child is in trouble."

They were America's Team—the high-priced, high-glamour, high-flying Dallas Cowboys of the 1990s, who won three Super Bowls and made as many headlines off the field as on it. Led by Emmitt Smith, the charismatic Deion "Prime Time" Sanders, and Hall of Famers Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin, the Cowboys rank among the greatest of all NFL dynasties. In similar fashion to his New York Times bestseller The Bad Guys Won! , about the 1986 New York Mets, in Boys Will Be Boys , award-winning writer Jeff Pearlman chronicles the outrageous antics and dazzling talent of a team fueled by ego, sex, drugs—and unrivaled greatness. Rising from the ashes of a 1–15 season in 1989 to capture three Super Bowl trophies in four years, the Dallas Cowboys were guided by a swashbuckling, skirt-chasing, power-hungry owner, Jerry Jones, and his two eccentric, hard-living coaches, Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer. Together the three built a juggernaut that America loved and loathed. But for a team that was so dominant on Sundays, the Cowboys were often a dysfunctional circus the rest of the week. Irvin, nicknamed "The Playmaker," battled dual addictions to drugs and women. Charles Haley, the defensive colossus, presided over the team's infamous "White House," where the parties lasted late into the night and a steady stream of long-legged groupies came and went. And then there were Smith and Sanders, whose Texas-sized egos were eclipsed only by their record-breaking on-field perfomances. With an unforgettable cast of characters and a narrative as hard-hitting and fast-paced as the team itself, Boys Will Be Boys immortalizes the most beloved—and despised—dynasty in NFL history.

Boys - The Boys


Boys – The Boys


$17


Personnel: Matt Dangerfield (vocals, guitar). Although they were swiftly overtaken by the emergence of a custom-crafted power pop movement, for much of 1977-1978 the Boys reigned supreme in the bright and breezy bubble punk stakes, simply churning out a succession of two-to-three-minute gems that flooded not only their albums and singles, but also the realms of the alter-ego Yobs. Patently influenced by the Ramones but readily avoiding the most obvious traps by virtue of their own understanding of what made a pop song tick, the Boys' first two singles, "I Don't Care" and "The First Time," remain period classics, while their debut album, September 1977's The Boys, went on to nibble the U.K. Top 50 at a time when such glories were still a rare achievement. Tightly scything guitars, sharply embroidered keyboards, and Kid Reid's contagiously imploring vocals dominate the proceedings, a relentlessly crisp buzzsaw whine that is as melodic as it is fast and as irresistibly singalong as it is either. Time, the enemy of so many punk-era artifacts, hasn't dented the album's pleasures; indeed, it might even have heightened them, as a direct line of descent to the modern likes of Green Day is revealed in living neon. Several early CD reissues did little justice to the album; the Captain Oi release, however, is essential, not only for the mastering and packaging, but also for eight bonus tracks that include the first stirrings of the aforementioned Yobs, a pair of non-album B-sides, and two songs ("Lonely Schooldays" and "Take a Heart") that have never previously seen the light of day, but slide straight into the soul of the album regardless. ~ Dave Thompson

This book addresses the issue of preadolescent boys literacy practices and the social construction of their identities as they navigate multiple classroom literacies. Exploring the role of the teacher, the role of multiple literacies and the way they count or do not count in the classroom curriculum through qualitative and quantitative findings, allows educators to rethink and reflect upon current instructional beliefs and practices. As educators align their curriculum with the Common Core Standards it is imperative for them to consider how they will meet each students’ individual learning styles. Demonstrating growth across time through artifact collection, and analysis and teacher research inquiries, will demand that teachers release pre-conceived notions concerning gender and literacy practices. At the end of each chapter there is a self-reflection as transformative practice, teacher research questionnaire that invites the opportunity to take what is shared in each chapter and apply it immediately to instructional practices and classroom environment decisions.

He might have been able to pass it off as beer-haze except in helping Geo get back to his apartment, Mack is taken off guard by Geo’s tackle and a mind-numbing blow job. Now the partnership has to redefine itself while the criminal world continues around them. They could lose their badges, or lose each other.

Jacuzzi Boys – Jacuzzi Boys


$12


Personnel: Gabriel Alcala (vocals, guitar, percussion); Bill Skibbe (guitar, keyboards, synthesizer, percussion); Danny Gonzalez (guitar, synthesizer, percussion); Diego Monasteri (drums, percussion, background vocals). Audio Mixers: Jessica Ruffins; Bill Skibbe. Recording information: Key Club Recording Co., Benton Harbor, MI (10/2012-11/2012). The Jacuzzi Boys' self-titled third album shows the rambunctious Florida trio growing up and cleaning up. Not too much; they still have plenty of the unbridled energy and joy that burst through the speakers like rays of sunshine. Clean enough, though, that the album might appeal to people who don't know Ty Segall from Ty Burrell. Grown up enough that the band doesn't sound like they're cutting class to record. Working with Bill Skibbe and Jessica Ruffins at Key Club Studio, then having the record mastered by the legendary Kramer, shows that the band is taking things more seriously, and that maybe they'll be taken more seriously in return. These concerns are mostly for indie rock fanatics — what really matters is that working with these people has helped give the Boys' sound more power and punch, focusing their ramshackle energy into something laser guided and capable of exploding into bursts of truly exciting rock & roll on tracks like "Rubble" and "Hotline." While those rockers are the songs that might reach out and grab you the first time through, there's more to the album than that. It's a fully rounded record — the more restrained songs like "Double Vision" and "Guillotine" have enough dynamic tension to give off sparks, and the quieter songs like "Dust" and "Heavy Horse" show that the band can play soft with as much force as on the rocked-out tracks. It's a great collaboration between producers and band that results in an album that's a step ahead from their previous work and it keeps everything that was good and builds on it, adding new sounds and generally tightening things up until it sounds ready to pop. There are many (too many?) bands in 2013 playing this kind of raucous garage rock, but thanks to the perfect production, the high-quality hookage in every song, and the nuanced yet powerful performance the Jacuzzi Boys deliver, there are precious few bands doing it better. ~ Tim Sendra

Backstreet Boys were nominated for the 1999 Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Don't be scared, mom and dad; though the Backstreet Boys employ a little rapping and hip-hop beat wizardy in their dance-pop amalgam, there's no R-rated gangsta mythology at work on their self-titled debut smash. And though this quartet of video-friendly fresh-faced boys has garnered many superficial comparisons to former teen idols New Kids On The Block, the Backstreet Boys sound has a bit more going for it. A more streetwise approach, hook-filled arrangements, a distinctive mixture of rapping and vocal harmonies and an endless supply of floor-shaking dance beats are the distinguishing marks of these platinum-plus pop poster boys.

Recording information: Jackpot Studios (2005); Studio 13 (2005). Photographers: Corey Smith ; Jocelyn Dean. On their 2006 debut for Birdman Records, the Nice Boys (featuring former members of the late great Exploding Hearts) offer up an engaging set of 1970s-inspired guitar-driven power-pop. Highlights of the Portland, Oregon-based act's self-titled record include the raucous, bouncy "Johnny Guitar" and the defiant "Ain't Been Beat," which references part of the drum line from the Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows" to more direct, garage-rock effect.

ORDINARY BOYS – ORDINARY BOYS


$10


2015 release from the Britpop band. After a hiatus of nearly 10 years, The Ordinary Boys are back with what is arguably their strongest album to date. Lead single 'Four Letter Word' is a soaring, energy driven statement of intent reminiscent of their 2004 Top 20 debut Over The Counter Culture. A return to their former sound is no surprise, since the reformed line-up consists of the original trio Preston, James Gregory (bass) and Charlie Chuck Stanley (drums) – plus new member Louis Jones from celebrated power-pop band Spectrals on guitar. Preston met Louis stage-diving at a Cribs gig and, knew immediately that I wanted him to be my new best friend/collaborator. Over the last year they have been busy writing and recording their new album and have enlisted Rory Atwell (the Vaccines, Veronica Falls) and MJ (of Hookworms) on production duties and Dan Lancaster (Bring Me The Horizon, Lower Than Atlantis) for mixing.

Sometimes – to survive – you have to FIGHT! Each year, City FC – known as ‘the Hawks’ – take on a group of thirteen-year-olds for the first tier of their special soccer school: training sessions in the evenings and weekends for truly talented players who are aiming to become professional players. It’s a glamorous, exciting future for the few who succeed – with huge rewards. But the failure rate is also high – BAD BOYS, the second in the series, highlights a conflict between two players who want to play in the same position: Ben, who wants to be accepted as ‘one of the lads’, even if it means behaving badly; and Lee, who fights to make his own decisions, only to realize he’s made the wrong choices…

Borneo Boys


Borneo Boys


$9.99


The author, Roger Annett, experienced first-hand the events detailed here. Flying with 215 Squadron, and co-piloting Argosy transport aircraft deep over Malayan jungle terrain from 1963 to 65, he is well placed to provide a colorful account of this dramatic period. Following a reunion of RAF Whirlwind veterans of Borneo, Annett began work on this record of their collective experience, attempting to stir the memories of both war veterans and civilians alike, riveted by the drama as it played out by opposing forces attempting to control the island of Borneo.The book describes the oppositions, antagonisms, victories, and defeats experienced on the island. Borneo itself, with its difficult terrain, jungles, and lack of adequate road networks, proved to be one of the biggest challenges from a military perspective, and it is brought to life here. The story of the 'Borneo Boys' of the title traces a journey from new recruits at boot camp to flying training, and on to Borneo itself. It was here where a fraternal bond was to be forged to last a lifetime and provide an impetus for this book. The process of Theatre familiarization – jungle training, nursing Whirlwind 10s over and around the mountainous Malayan jungle – is recorded here with first-hand authenticity.Setting this journey in context, Annett fills out the history of the wider conflict in which the boys were embroiled. The Far East colonial tensions, which bred antagonism and ultimately led to the conflict, are detailed, as are the cross-border raids and riots, which bred a fever of revolt.Much is written already on the Borneo conflict, a lot of it dealing with the politics of the situation. This book swoops its focus on the young men who were called upon to fly over such confusion, far away from home. It is their daily adventures, camaraderie, and learning trajectory, which we are faced with. All the excitement of the Aviator's adrenalin ride is translated into eloquent prose, strengthened by the kind of confident delivery that only a man involved in such proceedings could achieve.

Victor Boys


Victor Boys


$22.95


The Handley Page Victor was the third of the three V Bombers and the most long lasting, serving in the RAF until 1993, and still doing invaluable service in the first Iraq war. Moreover, in 1982 it was only the Victor tanker fleet based on Ascension Island that made possible the Vulcan Black Buck bombing of Port Stanley airfield and the long-range reconnaissance of Argentina by Nimrods. Victor Boys tells the story of all the great things that were achieved, recounted first hand by the operators themselves, aircrew and ground crew. Starting with accounts by test pilot Johnny Allam, who undertook the major development of the aircraft, through its work as a nuclear bomber during the cold war, testing Blue Steel in Australia, to its superb work during the Falklands war and later as a first class air-to-air refuelling tanker and vital support tool for fighters and other aircraft. Published to coincide with the Victor’s 60th anniversary, the gripping text is superbly illustrated with photographs from the operators themselves, never released before.

Twenty-four aircrew who flew the iconic aircraft with the Fleet Air Arm, the Royal Air Force and the South African Air Force (SAAF) relate their experiences and affection for the Blackburn Buccaneer. Arranged in chronological order, the book traces the history of the aircraft and the tasks it fulfilled. In addition to describing events and activities, it provides an insight into the lifestyle of a Buccaneer squadron and the fun and enjoyment of being a ‘Buccaneer Boy’ in addition to being part of a highly professional and dedicated force. The introduction into service is fully described before further chapters cover the development of the air force’s maritime tactics and the deployment of two squadrons to Germany in the overland strike role. Two chapters deal with the aircraft’s stunning successes at the Red Flag and Maple Flag exercises flown in North America which took the USAF hierarchy by storm. A further chapter is devoted to the intensive but little known Bush War operations by 24 SAAF Squadron on the borders of Angola. Two USAF exchange officers who flew Buccaneers relate their experiences and the aircraft’s deployment for the Lebanon crisis and the reinforcement exercise to the Falkland Islands is examined. The introduction of new air-to-surface anti-ship missiles is covered before the Buccaneer left to go to war in the Gulf where it distinguished itself providing precision laser marking for the Tornado force in addition to carrying out its own precision bombing attacks. This lavishly illustrated book concludes with accounts of the aircraft’s final days in RAF service and some reflections on its impact on maritime and overland air power.

Evacuee Boys


Evacuee Boys


$5.99


Brothers John and Andrew Forbat had been happily living in England as patriotic British boys since 1936. When the Second World War broke out, however, the brothers found themselves evacuated to a disadvantaged part of Melksham in Wiltshire, cut off from home and family, and in straitened circumstances. Added to this, on Pearl Harbor Day 1941, Hungary, along with other countries, joined the Axis and the Forbat family became Enemy Aliens.Their many letters home throughout the war, with details of their schooling, bullying, friendships and constant pursuit of more pocket money, form a humorous and at times tragic testament to the hardships of war. Interspersed with diary entries made by the boys’ father back home in Blitz-ravaged London, and letters from Andrew when he was interned on the Isle of Man, Evacuee Boys is as full a record of war-torn Britain as one family could provide.

Street Boys


Street Boys


$5.99


Naples, Italy, during four fateful days in the fall of 1943. The only people left in the shattered, bombed-out city are the lost, abandoned children whose only goal is to survive another day. None could imagine that they would become fearless fighters and the unlikeliest heroes of World War II. They are the warriors immortalized in Street Boys , Lorenzo Carcaterra’s exhilarating new novel, a book that exceeds even his bestselling Sleepers as a riveting reading experience. It’s late September. The war in Europe is almost won. Italy is leaderless, Mussolini already arrested by anti-Fascists. The German army has evacuated the city of Naples. Adults, even entire families, have been marched off to work camps or simply sent off to their deaths. Now, the German army is moving toward Naples to finish the job. Their chilling instructions are: If the city can’t belong to Hitler, it will belong to no one. No one but children. Children who have been orphaned or hidden by parents in a last, defiant gesture against the Nazis. Children, some as young as ten years old, armed with just a handful of guns, unexploded bombs, and their own ingenuity. Children who are determined to take on the advancing enemy and save the cityor die trying. There is Vincenzo Soldari, a sixteen-year-old history buff who is determined to make history by leading others with courage and self-confidence; Carlo Maldini, a middle-aged drunkard desperate to redeem himself by adding his experience to the raw exuberance of the young fighters; Nunzia Maldini, his nineteen-year-old daughter, who helps her father regain his self-respect and loses her heart to an American G.I.; Corporal Steve Connors, a soldier sent out on reconnaissance, then cut off from his comradeswith no choice but to aid the street boys; Colonel Rudolph Van Klaus, the proud Nazi commander shamed by his own sadistic mission; and, of course, the dozens of young boys who use their few skills and great heart to try to save their city, their country, and themselves. In its compassionate portrait of the rootless young, and its pitiless portrayal of the violence that is at once their world and their way out, Street Boys continues and deepens Lorenzo Carcaterra’s trademark themes. In its awesome scope and pure page-turning excitement, it stands as a stirring tribute to the underdog in us alland as a singular addition to the novels about World War II.

In the late 1580s a new kind of entertainment flowered in London: professional theatre, with its custom built playhouses, professional companies, incredible staging and, last but not least, the new writers, poets, playwrights – the roaring boys. To ambitious young writers, London was a magnet offering the possibility of fame, excitement, wealth and opportunity beyond their wildest dreams. Arriving in London from quite ordinary backgrounds – Marlowe was the son of a shoemaker, Shakespeare’s family were leather workers, Jonson’s stepfather a bricklayer – they suddenly found themselves feted, offered large sums of money, the darlings of audiences – and they created drama off stage as well as on. Like footballer and media celebrities of today, they behaved like the stars they thought themselves to be – drinking with wild abandon, partying, courting publicity – their reputations growing in the telling. Some set out to shock; some drank too much, some, like Christopher Marlowe, became involved in fights, fatally; a few ran headlong into political danger. This lively and engaging book, packed with anecdote, recreates the lives and times of these playwrights and actors, and the world in which they lived from 1578 when Burbage built the first purpose built theatre to 1620 when the great age came to its end.

Everything has a beginning. None was more profoundandquite as unexpectedthan Information Technology. Here for the first time is the untold story of how our new age came to be and the bright boys who made it happen. What began on the bare floor of an old laundry building eventually grew to rival in size the Manhattan Project. The unexpected consequence of that journey was huge—what we now know as Information Technology. For sixty years the bright boys have been totally anonymous while their achievements have become a way of life for all of us. Bright Boys brings them home. By 1950 they’d built the world’s first real-time computer. Three years later they one-upped themselves when they switched on the world’s first digital network. In 1953 their work was met with incredulity and completely overlooked. By 1968 their work was gospel. Today, it’s the way of the world. Special Foreword by Jay W. Forrester Includes notes by chapter, bibliography, index, and portfolio of archival photography. Tom Green talks about his book in a recent video available on YouTube.

Memphis Boys chronicles the story of the rhythm section at Chips Moman’s American Studios from 1964, when the group began working together, until 1972, when Moman shut down the studio and moved the entire operation to Atlanta. Utilizing extensive interviews with Moman and the group, as well as additional comments from the songwriters, sound engineers, and office staff, author Roben Jones creates a collective biography combined with a business history and a critical analysis of important recordings. She reveals how the personalities of the core group meshed, how they regarded newcomers, and how their personal and musical philosophies blended with Moman’s vision to create timeless music based on themes of suffering and sorrow. Recording sessions with Elvis Presley, the Gentrys, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, the Box Tops, Joe Tex, Neil Diamond, B. J. Thomas, Dionne Warwick, and many others come alive in this book. Jones provides the stories behind memorable songs composed by group writers, such as The Letter, Dark End of the Street, Do Right Woman, Breakfast in Bed, and You Were Always on My Mind. Featuring photographs, personal profiles, and a suggested listening section, Memphis Boys details a significant phase of American music and the impact of one studio.

Wolf Boys


Wolf Boys


$12.99


Chicago Public Library’s Best Books of 2016 The story of two American teens recruited as killers for a Mexican cartel, and their pursuit by a Mexican-American detective who realizes the War on Drugs is unwinnable. What’s it like to be an employee of a global drug-trafficking organization? And how does a fifteen-year-old American boy go from star quarterback to trained assassin, surging up the cartel corporate ladder? At first glance, Gabriel Cardona is the poster boy American teenager: great athlete, bright, handsome, and charismatic. But the streets of his border town of Laredo, Texas, are poor and dangerous, and it isn’t long before Gabriel abandons his promising future for the allure of the Zetas, a drug cartel with roots in the Mexican military. His younger friend Bart, as well as others from Gabriel’s childhood, join him in working for the Zetas, boosting cars and smuggling drugs, eventually catching the eye of the cartel’s leadership. Meanwhile, Mexican-born Detective Robert Garcia has worked hard all his life and is now struggling to raise his family in America. As violence spills over the border, Detective Garcia’s pursuit of the boys, and their cartel leaders, puts him face to face with the urgent consequences of a war he sees as unwinnable. In Wolf Boys Dan Slater shares their stories, taking us from the Sierra Madre mountaintops to the dusty, dark alleys of Laredo, Texas, on a harrowing, often brutal journey into the heart of the Mexican drug trade. Gabriel’s evolution from good-natured teenager into a feared assassin is as inevitable as Garcia’s slow realization of the futile nature of his work. A nonfiction thriller, Wolf Boys depicts more than just Gabriel, Bart, and the officers who took them down. It shows, through vivid detail and rich, often moving, narrative, the way in which the border itself is changing, disappearing, and posing new, terrifying, and yet largely unseen threats to American security. Ultimately though, Wolf Boys is the intimate story of the lobos themselves: boys turned into pawns for cartels. Their stories show how poverty, ideas about identity, and government ignorance have warped the definition of the American dream.

With her older sister, Shelby, spending the summer in Boston, Winnie’s left to deal with the situation all by herself. Which is why she’s happy to spend all day away from home at a cushy job — camp counselor at the prestigious Oceanview Inn. And when the Barclays, a wealthy summer family, offer Winnie an additional babysitting job in the evenings after work, she jumps at the opportunity. Little Cassie Barclay is fun to take care of, and hanging out in the gorgeous Barclay summer house overlooking the harbor is far more pleasant than being on the front lines of the battle between her parents. Then Cassie’s older and devastatingly attractive stepbrother Jay arrives on the island after a disastrous first year at college, and he seems to want nothing more than to wreak havoc for his stepmother and the rest of his family. Winnie soon discovers that life in the Barclay summer house isn’t so perfect after all, and what was supposed to be a carefree summer escapade is quickly becoming more complicated than she ever thought possible….

Educating Boys


$12.99


According to the media and some concerned parents, boys are having greater trouble than ever with schooling. this book takes the refreshing counter position that boys are generally fine, and not inherently toxic creatures that need ‘fixing’. What does need fixing, however, are some of the parenting and teaching practices and environments boys are placed in for schooling and social development. In the vein of Celia Lashlie’s Good Man Project, which became the basis for her international bestseller, He’ll Be OK, in-depth research has been undertaken with schoolboys of various ages to canvass their views on current schooling, what worries them and how schools could enhance their education opportunities. the ground-breaking result offers parents and teachers practical advice on the best way to educate boys; combining and analysing their own stories, opinions and ideas. taking a clearheaded look at the education of boys from birth to tertiary education, Michael’s opinions are supported by extensive research into how boys want to, and should be, educated. the book challenges some of the ways boys are being taught and gives practical ideas for programmes to meet boys’ educational and social needs, and how changing current practices and improving environments is the key for many boys who will otherwise fail to reach their full potential.

Eleven-year-old Taylor likes to be outside playing with their dog, Cody, or joking around with the other kids in the neighborhood. But one night everything changes. The boys discover a dangerous secret that Bull is hiding. And the next day, they come home from school to find their mother unconscious in an ambulance. Knowing they are no longer safe and with nowhere else to go, the Wilder Boys head off in search of their father. They only have his old letters and journal to help them, but they have to make it. It’s a long journey from the suburbs of Pittsburgh to the wilderness of Wyoming; can the Wilder Boys find their father before Bull catches up with them?

These hard-hitting, deeply felt stories follow straight arrows and outlaws, have-it-alls and outcasts, as they take stock of their lives and missteps and struggle to rise above their turbulent pasts. A salesman re-examines his tenuous relationship with his sister after she is brutally attacked. A house painter plans a new life for his family as he plots his last bank robbery. A drifter gets a chance at love when he delivers news of a barfly’s death to the man’s estranged daughter. A dissatisfied yuppie is oddly envious of his ex-con brother as they celebrate their first Christmas together. Set in a Los Angeles depicted with aching clarity, Lange’s stories are gritty, and his characters often less than perfect. Beneath their macho bravado, however, they are full of heart and heartbreak.
