The Meatball Shop has quickly grown into a New York City dining destination. Food lovers from around the city and beyond are heading down to Manhattan’s Lower East Side for a taste of this breakout comfort food phenomenon. In this fun and satisfying cookbook, chef Daniel Holzman and general manager Michael “Meatball Mike” Chernow open up their vault of secrets and share nearly 100 recipes—from such tried-and-true favorites as traditional Bolognese Meatballs and Mediterranean Lamb Balls to more adventurous creations like their spicy Mini-Buffalo Chicken Balls and Jambalaya Balls. Accompanying the more than twenty meatball variations are recipes for close to a dozen delectable sauces, offering endless options to mix and match: from Spicy Meat to Parmesan Cream to Mango Raisin Chutney. And what would a meatball meal be without succulent sides and simple salads to round out the menu: Creamy Polenta, Honey Roasted Carrots, and Marinated Grilled Eggplant, just to name a few. You’ll also find helpful tips on everything from choosing the best cuts of meat to creating the perfect breadcrumbs to building the ultimate hero sandwich. There may not be a Meatball Shop near you—yet—but there’s a meatball for everyone (and lots more) in this crowd-pleasing cookbook that will have them lining up outside your kitchen.

This monograph presents the proceedings of the first National Institute on Drug Abuse technical review related to the conduct of controlled studies on prenatal exposure to drugs of abuse. Papers in the monograph are categorized by session. The first session (two papers) focused on the detection and quantification of prenatal drug exposure in infants, including studies of the effects of smoking and of pharmacokinetic correlates of fetal drug exposure. The second session (three papers) explored assessments of pregnancy outcomes, including discussions of the implications of previous research methodologies on future research; definitional problems in cocaine research; and the use of birth defect monitoring programs for assessing the effects of maternal substance abuse. Assessment of the status of the newborn, including studies on neurobehavioral organization, cardiorespiratory functioning, and brain development, was considered in the four papers presented in the third session. The fourth session (three papers) offered a framework for measuring drug-induced physical and behavioral delays and abnormalities, including both clinical and psychophysiologic perspectives. The next two sessions (with two and three papers respectively) focused on specific types of behavioral delays and abnormalities, covering cardiac and respiratory control, endocrine function, monoamine systems, behavioral development, nonhuman primate models, learning and cognition, and social and emotional development. The final session focused on tracking drug effects over the lifespan, and includes three papers on research challenges for following exposed infants into childhood, patterns of growth and development in narcotic-exposed children, and the integrity of psychopathology diagnoses across the lifespan. Each session concluded with a discussion paper highlighting study findings, methodological issues, and research problems and needs. (AC)

Publisher: Psychology Press
This text presents the basic concepts of modern cognitive psychology in a succinct and accessible manner. Empirical results, theoretical developments, and current issues are woven around basic concepts to produce coherent accounts of research areas. Barsalou's primary goal is to equip readers with a conceptual vocabulary that acquaints them with the general approach of cognitive psychology and allows them to follow more technical discussions elsewhere. In meeting this goal, he discusses the traditional work central to modern thinking and reviews current work relevant to cognitive science. Besides focusing on research and theory in cognitive psychology, Barsalou also addresses its fundamental assumptions. Because the cognitive approach to psychology is somewhat subtle, often misunderstood, and sometimes controversial, it is essential for a text on cognitive psychology to address the assumptions that underlie it. Therefore, three of the eleven chapters address the "meta- assumptions" that govern research and theory in cognitive psychology. These meta-chapters provide a deeper understanding of the content areas and a clearer vision of what cognitive psychologists are trying to accomplish. The remaining eight "content" chapters cover the central topics in cognitive psychology. This book will be of value to a variety of audiences. Ideal for researchers in computer science, linguistics, philosophy, anthropology, and neuroscience who wish to acquaint themselves with cognitive psychology, it may also be used as a text for courses in cognitive science and cognitive psychology. Lay readers who wish to learn about the cognitive approach to scientific psychology will also find the volume useful.

There has never been a hard rock band like Metallica. The California quartet has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, won nine Grammy Awards, and had five consecutive albums hit number one on the Billboard charts. But Metallica’s story, epic in scope, is a tale about much more than sales figures and critical acclaim, and their journey from scuzzy Los Angeles garages to the world’s most storied stadiums has been dramatic and painful, their gigantic successes often shot through with tension, tragedy, loss, and controversy. Birth School Metallica Death is the definitive story of the most significant rock band since Led Zeppelin. Volume 1 covers the band’s formation up to their breakthrough eponymous fifth album, aka “The Black Album.” The intense and sometimes fraught relationship between aloof-yet-simmering singer, chief lyricist, and rhythm guitarist James Hetfield and the outspoken and ambitious drummer Lars Ulrich is the saga’s emotional core. Their earliest years saw the release of three unimpeachable classics—Kill ’Em All, Ride the Lightning, and Master of Puppets—genre-defining masterpieces that took hard rock to a new level, both artistically and commercially. During these tumultuous times, the band persevered through line-up changes when guitarist Dave Mustaine was replaced by Kirk Hammet, and their bass player, the beloved Cliff Burton, was tragically killed in a bus crash while on tour in Europe. But it was the breakthrough of …And Justice for All that rent the fabric of the mainstream, hitting the top of the charts without benefit of radio airplay or the then-crucial presence on MTV. And finally in 1991, with the release of their fifth studio album, nicknamed “The Black Album,” Metallica hit the next level—five hit singles including their best-known songs “Enter Sandman” and “Nothing Else Matters”—and their first album atop the Billboard charts. In Birth School Metallica Death, veteran music journalists and Metallica confidants Paul Brannigan and Ian Winwood detail this meteoric rise to international fame in an epic saga of family, community, self-belief, the pursuit of dreams, and music that rocks. Told through first-hand interviews with the band and those closest to them, the story of Metallica’s rise to the mainstream has never been so vividly documented.

Air pollution poses a serious threat to human health and the environment worldwide. It contributes significantly to regional and global atmospheric issues such as global warming, acidification and depletion of the ozone layer. It affects every living thing, including all kinds of vegetation on which we depend for our survival. Although several works have appeared on air pollution, few, are able to provide the broad background that encompasses the whole gamut of plant responses to atmospheric insult. This multi-authored work integrates the varied plant growth responses to the pollution stress; the focus of the attention is plant rather than pollutant. This portrays a clearer picture of plant performance versus air pollution, and helps develop a better insight of the pollution-based disturbances at the different levels of plant life. The book shall interest both students and researchers of environmental botany and forestry as well as all those who love plants and have any interest towards global vegetation and environmental health.
Come Bury Me
Author: Andrej Krementschouk
Following the success of his prize-winning book No Direction Home (Kehrer, 2009), the recipient of the 2010 German Photo Book Award, Krementschouk tells the story of his homeland and the stark realities of homelessness. The setting is a dilapidated cottage in a small Russian town, where a group of people have made a home for themselves on the fringes of society. They invited Krementschouk into their world, where he captured a moving blend of despair and addiction coupled with warmth and affection, creating what is now a lasting document of a community lost.
