From Canton Restaurant to Panda Express takes readers on a compelling journey from the California Gold Rush to the present, letting readers witness both the profusion of Chinese restaurants across the United States and the evolution of many distinct American-Chinese iconic dishes from chop suey to General Tso’s chicken. Along the way, historian Haiming Liu explains how the immigrants adapted their traditional food to suit local palates, and gives readers a taste of Chinese cuisine embedded in the bittersweet story of Chinese Americans. Treating food as a social history, Liu explores why Chinese food changed and how it has influenced American culinary culture, and how Chinese restaurants have become places where shared ethnic identity is affirmed—not only for Chinese immigrants but also for American Jews. The book also includes a look at national chains like P. F. Chang’s and a consideration of how Chinese food culture continues to spread around the globe. Drawing from hundreds of historical and contemporary newspaper reports, journal articles, and writings on food in both English and Chinese, From Canton Restaurant to Panda Express represents a groundbreaking piece of scholarly research. It can be enjoyed equally as a fascinating set of stories about Chinese migration, cultural negotiation, race and ethnicity, diverse flavored Chinese cuisine and its share in American food market today.

The alarming symptoms of Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome - sudden tics, OCD, and regressions in both learning ability and behavior - can leave families stunned. Moreover, when educators and mental health professionals attempt to provide those families with desperately needed help, those providers may soon discover that tools useful for addressing those symptoms in the general population are ineffective for the youth who is battling PANS. In this seminal work on PANS-related education, learning specialist, educator, and researcher Dr. Candelaria Greene PhD gives voice to the struggle that those extraordinary young people and families face. She offers a practical road map to assist those students through their unique academic challenges. Sprinkled with humor and poignant tones, Dr. Candelaria Greene provides an in-depth historical overview of PANS, followed by a discussion of how this multifaceted condition thwarts students' abilities both inside and outside of the classroom. She then reviews the processes and challenges of obtaining special education, accommodations, and other essential services, along with a detailed review of the ways in which laws in the United States support those essential interventions for students with PANS-related symptoms. The calling card of PANS is one of jagged dysfunction in multiple areas - along with healing and recovered function over time. Those symptoms require that providers look beyond 'a one-size-fits-all approach' when treating the PANS-affected child or young adult. Accordingly, Dr. Candelaria Greene provides continuums of educational support that are unique to each student's circumstances. Moreover, she provides 'signposts' to help the practitioner and parent identify those educational and special educational practices that will be most effective in the educational care of students with PANS. Finally, the book provides practical tools for providers and families alike through appendices that include a PANS check list, glossary, references, web resources, descriptors of OCD and tic disorders, and sample letters to initiate educational services.

What if you could understand a person by just looking at them? What if you knew what to expect from them in terms of performance, never to experience disappointment again? What if blue eyes, dark skin and thick wavy hair gave you enough information to honor the true nature of such an individual? With the Knowledge of Y.O.U.® and The Ultimate Life Tool® one can connect authentically with their children, clients, co-workers and family. If there is a human in the equation, The Ultimate Life Tool® can offer solutions to real life challenges. If it’s infidelity, fatigue, addiction, an identity crisis, raising a special needs child, creating productive work environments, or just a lack of passion for life, The Ultimate Life Tool® offers Natural Solutions to situations that have become problematic because the PHYSICAL laws of nature have likely been overlooked. We can easily recognize trees and animals without having to question which is likely to make shade, roar, hop or meow. Yet, we are the only species that cannot SEE itself in it’s own Natural Perfection. Instead we form judgments about others based on their dress, their ability to converse, their smell, their car, education, family, story, resume and where they live; all of which tells us nothing about the true nature of an individual. Until we remember how to SEE each other in our states of authenticity we will continue to impose our own will, opinions and beliefs upon one another only to mimic... The Blind leading The Blind. The Knowledge of Y.O.U.® and The Ultimate Life Tool® will open your eyes to a whole new perspective on life. A new understanding and respect for yourself and human nature will manifest and life will simply make sense.

The bestselling author of Grain Brain uncovers the powerful role of gut bacteria in determining your brain's destiny. Debilitating brain disorders are on the rise-from children diagnosed with autism and ADHD to adults developing dementia at younger ages than ever before. But a medical revolution is underway that can solve this problem: Astonishing new research is revealing that the health of your brain is, to an extraordinary degree, dictated by the state of your microbiome - the vast population of organisms that live in your body and outnumber your own cells ten to one. What's taking place in your intestines today is determining your risk for any number of brain-related conditions. In BRAIN MAKER, Dr. Perlmutter explains the potent interplay between intestinal microbes and the brain, describing how the microbiome develops from birth and evolves based on lifestyle choices, how it can become "sick," and how nurturing gut health through a few easy strategies can alter your brain's destiny for the better. With simple dietary recommendations and a highly practical program of six steps to improving gut ecology, BRAIN MAKER opens the door to unprecedented brain health potential.

"This volume broadens animal liberation dialogues by offering the arguments, challenges, inspiration and narratives of grassroots activists. The essays show what animal advocacy looks like from a collective of individuals living in and around Minnesota's Twin Cities; the essayists, however, write of issues, both personal and political, that resound on a global scale"--Provided by publisher.
