Placing individual works by the allegorical artist and sculptor Jasper Johns in their social context as well as in Johns's oeuvre, this book aims to get to terms with - and find terms for - a difficult and elusive body of work by one of the most important artists of the 20th century.

Jasper Knight is a young artist who belongs to that group of individuals sometimes described as 'junk poets'. He gathers his inspiration and builds his art from the throwaway detritus of urban society. In a sense, his art is both a celebration and a critique of consumerism. Most of Knight's iconography can be found in the decaying areas of once thriving industrial docklands. He skilfully depicts the old trucks, the discarded heavy earthmoving equipment and the smashed bodies of expensive motor vehicles. The rusting iron structures that once supported heavy industry, old piers and cargo wharfs, the ferry landings around well-used harbours, the crumbling facades of derelict buildings, lonesome chimneys, cranes and other abandoned machinery are his subjects. Knight has painted the docklands of Melbourne and the piers and ferries of Sydney Harbour. In 2006 he painted fourteen works that were exhibited in London under the title 'An Island in the Sun'. This series was painted in and around the old discarded Renault car factory at Ile Seguin, an island in the River Seine at Boulogne- Billancourt on the western edge of Paris.

Nestled in the rolling hills of Southern Indiana, Jasper and Huntingburg are quintessential American towns where hard work and dedication to cultural and ethnic preservation contribute to the beauty and prosperity of the area. The strong European roots of these Dubois County towns are evident in soaring churches and the nearby Monastery of the Immaculate Conception. German traditions passed down by immigrants from the Black Forest and Bavaria have earned Jasper the title of the "Nation's Woodworking Capital," while Scotch and Irish heritage are also woven into the fabric of the region. These divergent influences have created architecturally and historically significant towns proud of their past and ready to embrace their future.
For as long as Jasper can remember, he has had the ability to change his dreams in any way he wishes. Now Jasper has learned that, that is not all he can do. He has amazed his friends for years with his incredible stories. But even Jasper himself did not expect what happens next--he finds that he can bring others into his Dreamworld! Join Jasper and his best friends, Christopher and Jeanie, as they explore the incredible power of their imaginations. Together they learned to confront their problems, face their bullies, and work together to change the world in Brian K. DiMaggio's Jasper. Is there any limit to what they can do? In this heartwarming tale of friendship, Jasper shows us that anything can be achieved when we put our minds to it.
This title introduces the concept of reflective practice and explains its purpose to the healthcare student or professional in the UK.

H.H. Jasper, A.A. Ward, A. Pope and H.H. Merritt, chair of the Public Health Service Advisory Committee on the Epilepsies, National Institutes of Health, published the first volume on Basic Mechanisms of the Epilepsies (BME) in 1969. Their ultimate goal was to search for a "better understanding of the epilepsies and seek more rational methods of their prevention and treatment." Since then, basic and clinical researchers in epilepsy have gathered together every decade and a half with these goals in mind -- assessing where epilepsy research has been, what it has accomplished, and where it should go. In 1999, the third volume of BME was named in honor of H.H. Jasper. In line with the enormous expansion in the understanding of basic epilepsy mechanisms over the past four decades, this fourth edition of Jasper's BME is the most ambitious yet. In 90 chapters, the book considers the role of interactions between neurons, synapses, and glia in the initiation, spread and arrest of seizures. It examines mechanisms of excitability, synchronization, seizure susceptibility, and ultimately epileptogenesis. It provides a framework for expanding the epilepsy genome and understanding the complex heredity responsible for common epilepsies as it explores disease mechanisms of ion channelopathies and developmental epilepsy genes. It considers the mechanisms of conditions of epilepsy comorbidities. And, for the first time, this 4th edition describes the current efforts to translate the discoveries in epilepsy disease mechanisms into new therapeutic strategies. This book, considered the 'bible' of basic epilepsy research, is essential for the student, the clinician scientist and all research scientists who conduct laboratory-based experimental epilepsy research using cellular, brain slice and animal models, as well as for those interested in related disciplines of neuronal oscillations, network plasticity, and signaling in brain strucutres that include the cortex, hippocampus, and thalamus. In keeping with the 1969 goals, the book is now of practical importance to the clinical neurologist and epileptologist as the progress of research in molecular genetics and modern efforts to design antiepileptic drugs, cures and repairs in the epilepsies converge and impact clinical care.
