There have been rumors for the past several years that the worldwide frog
population is declining, perhaps due to effects of global warming. But this book
shows that the worldwide frog-story population is growing and thriving. This will
be of little comfort to lovers of amphibians, but a cause for pleasure to students of
cognitive linguistics, developmental psychology, and narratology.
After researching literature on addiction and film,
I chose the films for the study and viewed each one many
times, specifically looking for socioeconomic representations
of characters, treatment of different races, sexes, and sexual
preferences, methods of production as they relate to addicted
characters and drug usage, and the depiction of treatment/
self-help groups. I then outlined the narrative of each film
and compared the uses and meanings brought to addicts,
addiction, and substances. I found that these movies construct
a fairly unified image of treatment.
The result of these constructions is that narrative proceeds in a straight trajectory through time. Any
transitions that break linearity (for example, flashbacks) are carefully prepared for and all narrative
threads are sewn together at the end.
The continuity style is a remarkable form because of its persistence, its invisibility, and because we
learn how to read it easily and without any instruction than seeing the films themselves.
This volume is based upon my _Ancient History_ and _Mediæval and Modern History_. In some instances I have changed the perspective and the proportions of the narrative; but in the main, the book is constructed upon the same lines as those drawn for the earlier works. In dealing with so wide a range of facts, and tracing so many historic movements, I cannot hope that I have always avoided falling into error. I have, however, taken the greatest care to verify statements of fact, and to give the latest results of discovery and criticism.

Wheelchair Warrior tells the true story of Melvin Juette,
an African American gang member from Chicago who
was shot and paralyzed and later became a world-class
wheelchair athlete. It is not primarily a story about urban black America,
although it is also about that; rather, it is a story that focuses on
Juette’s resiliency in the face of his disability and how his involvement
in wheelchair basketball helped him move forward with his life.
You learned about the notation used in entity relationship diagrams, important data modeling patterns, guidelines to avoid common modeling errors, and conversion of entity relationship diagrams (ERDs) into relational tables. You applied this knowledge to construct ERDs for small, narrative problems. This chapter extends your database design skills by presenting normalization techniques to remove redundancy in relational tables.
