The Farm as a Social Arena

´´The Farm as a Social Arena´´ focusses on the social life of farms from prehistory until c. 1700 AD, based mainly, but not exclusively, on archaeological sources. All over Europe people have lived on farms, at least from the Bronze Age onwards. The papers presented here discuss farms from Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Germany. Whether isolated or in hamlets or villages, farms have been important elements of the social structure for thousands of years. Farms were workplace and home for its inhabitants, women, men and children, and perhaps extended families - frequently sharing their space with domestic animals. Sometimes important events such as feasts, religious services and funerals also took place here. The household thus became a multi-faceted arena, which brought together a variety of community members that both shaped - and were shaped by - its social dynamics. At times work and other activities defined by the social arena that was the farm even affected long-term developments of society as such. With contributions from: Birgitta Berglund, Timo Bremer, Timothy Carlisle, Liv Helga Dommasnes, Doris Gutsmiedl-Schümann, Alf Tore Hommedal, Karen Milek, Emma Nordström, Kristin Armstrong Oma, Helge Sørheim and Inger Storli.

Thank you, thank you, thank you all for coming. What a great-looking group of people we have here today. As your president, I feel it’s important to tell you all about this guy. He’s a great guy. A real stand-up guy. A real go-getter. His name is Marc Havak, and let me tell you, this guy is going to be huge. See, when the aliens came down and told us they’d enslave all of the human race if we didn’t send our bigliest warrior to participate in their arena death games, I laughed at them. It was really funny because they obviously didn’t know who they were dealing with. Know what I mean? Then they said they would pick the greatest warrior, and they picked Marc Havak. He seemed like such an average guy, but he was a true-blue American. He even worked as a truck driver! That’s the kind of good guy we want defending us from aliens. I took one look at Marc and realized he was just the right guy to save our planet. I always make the best decisions, and this one was one of the best decisions. Turns out Marc was really good at kicking alien ass. He won all the games, got all the prizes, and slept with all the hot alien women. And let me tell you, these women are some real beauties, and they don’t mind sharing Marc. He is just that great. Of course, he’s still not quite as accomplished as I am, but no one is. There is more to it than that. You should check his story out. It’s a great story. A fantastic story. One of the best, and I know good stories. You’ll love it. 1. Language: English.

Instead of looking at what we think autism is, we are going to jump into a whole new arena! Change the way you view and handle autism forever! We will examine the many common misconceptions of autism. I´ll be discussing some of the techniques that I´ve used on my four-year-old autistic son, Justin. He was three years old, about a month before his fourth birthday. I had searched everything I knew how to search, and I found lots of information on defining autism as well as the symptoms of autism. What I couldn´t find was much on how to handle or treat it, other than, ´´Take him to a professional.´´ I totally agree that autistic children need professional therapy and services. For me, what was missing was a way I could work with him one-on-one. A way I could break through the invisible barrier that surrounded him, and draw him out. I learned exactly how to do that with Justin. Through sharing my struggles, failures, and successes, I hope to offer hope to those who are parents or caregivers who have children with autism. 1.

We may think we know Sarah Palin from all the coverage she has received in the political arena, but one-side depictions but media coverage is limited and, Sarah would even say, biased. Our Sarah is also a bit biased since it´s written by Sarah´s dad and brother with contributions from many friends and colleagues - these are the people who know her - and love her - best. Combining the appeal of Sarah Palin´s best-selling book, Going Rogue, with the flavor of the hugely successful TV show Sarah Palin´s Alaska, here are intimate stories from Sarah´s life along with a celebration of growing up in and sharing all that Alaska means to Sarah and her family. Sarah´s dad and brother share great family stories of life in the last frontier - from hiking, camping, fishing, hunting and gold-mining, to marathon running, teaching and community service - first in small ways and then on a national stage. Structured around themes of family, faith, independence, resilience, character, risk-taking, and adventure - here is a full and loving portrait of where Sarah Palin came from and what made her the person she is today. 1.

Business, nonprofit, and public sector leaders are facing new and daunting challenges - rapid-paced developments in technology, sudden shifts in the marketplace, and crisis and contention in the public arena. If they are to survive in this chaotic environment, leaders must develop the skills they need to lead effectively no matter how fast the world around them is changing. Leading in a Culture of Change offers new and seasoned leaders´ insights into the dynamics of change and presents a unique and imaginative approach for navigating the intricacies of the change process. Michael Fullan - an internationally acclaimed expert in organizational change - shows how leaders in all types of organizations can accomplish their goals and become exceptional leaders. He draws on the most current ideas and theories on the topic of effective leadership, incorporates case examples of large scale transformation, and reveals a remarkable convergence of powerful themes, or as he calls them, the five core competencies. By integrating the five core competencies - attending to a broader moral purpose, keeping on top of the change process, cultivating relationships, sharing knowledge, and setting a vision and context for creating coherence in organizations - leaders will be empowered to deal with complex change. They will be transformed into exceptional leaders who consistently mobilize their compatriots to do important and difficult work under conditions of constant change. 1. Language: English.

From Cradle to Stage: Stories from the Mothers ...

Virginia Grohl, mother of Dave Grohl, had not seen any of it coming. Not the arenas of screaming fans, not Nirvana or the Foo Fighters, not the induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and certainly not her son, Dave, performing with Sir Paul McCartney at the White House. Theirs had always been a life full of music - the Grohl family sang together on long car trips, harmonising to Motown and David Bowie - yet Virginia never expected her son to become a musician. But when Virginia saw Nirvana play for the first time to crazed applause from thousands of screaming fans, she knew nothing would ever be the same. She was the mother of a rock star. And as Virginia watched her son´s star rise, she often wondered about the other mothers who raised sons and daughters who became rock stars. Were they as surprised as she was about their children´s fame? Virginia often wondered about the mystical force that urges some of us to listen, to play, to surround ourselves with music. She wanted to talk about it with the other mothers whose sons and daughters were sharing stages with Dave, and she decided to seek them out wherever they were. So began a two-year odyssey where she had conversations with such women from all over the world, such as Verna Griffin, Dr Dre´s mother; Carolyn Williams, Pharrell Williams´ mother; Janis Winehouse, Amy Winehouse´s mother; Patsy Noah, Adam Levine´s mother; Donna Haim, mother to the Haim sisters; and Hester Diamond, Mike D of the Beastie Boys´ mother, to name just a few. From Cradle to Stage will appeal to mothers everywhere but particularly to those with children who march (or play) to the beat of their own drum; and it´s for those children who have their mothers to thank for everything. For music lovers and rock fans, it´s the ultimate backstage pass - for anyone who has wondered what it´s like to be on the inside, looking out at a packed arena. 1. Language: English.
