The Academy Game On from the Author: Monica Seles. The Academy is the hottest international sports school for teen athletes. There are only two ways in: money – and lots of it – or enough talent to earn a scholarship. Young tennis star Maya's dreams have finally come true! She's got the scholarship. She's got the drive. She's on her way from small town to pro career . . . But when Maya starts boarding at the sports training school, her fantasy of the Academy doesn't quite match the reality – because where there are beautiful, talented teens, there's plenty of drama. Meet the players: Nicole: a tennis star who feels threatened by Maya (although she'd never admit it). Cleo: Maya's rebel / punk room-mate who's reaching the top of the golf world. Renee: a super-rich, super-gorgeous swimmer. Travis: the son of the Academy's owner and perfectly groomed to be the next big star of the National Football League. Jake: Travis's younger brother – and the bad boy of the school.

Art And The Academy In The Nineteenth Century from the Author: Rafael Cardoso Denis. Academies functioned as the main venues for the promotion, display and teaching of art throughout the 19th century. 20th-century opinion has tended to maintain a consipicuous silence on their account, except for the strategic employment of academicism as a term of abuse. The authors uncover the institutional structures and artistic practices of academies from London and Paris to Dusseldorf and Rio de Janeiro. By situating the efforts of individual artists and academies within the context of a network of global proportions, new insights are gained into the ways in which institutions of art helped shape the 19th century's view of itself as an age of equipoise and civilization amidst the turmoil of rapid social and cultural change.

Academy For Losers from the Author: Cat Shaffer. Who knew that being nothing special would make Violet Green so extraordinary? Being kicked out of her old school for a lack of natural magic and being sent to the Hempstead Academy for vocational training was the absolute worst that could ever happen. But once she met the Terribles, discovered her talent for lawnmower engine repair, and met the cutest boy ever, life began to look a little brighter - at least until a nosy guidance counselor, her former high school principal and a decision to enter the district's spelling bee, the greatest magic event of the year, made her rethink every decision.

Unionization In The Academy from the Author: Judith Wagner DeCew. Unionization in the Academy is an authoritative, balanced, and comprehensive account of academic unions their history, purpose, and the conflicts they cause. Judith Wagner DeCew takes on the central issues, including unions for part-time and adjunct faculty, graduate student unions, and collective bargaining. The book also includes a history of the rise of academic unions and its watershed moments, such as the U.S. Supreme Court's 1980 Yeshiva decision. A series of important articles by other observers supplements DeCew's insights and arguments. This combination yields a detailed survey of the arguments for and against academic unions of all kinds. Are unions a threat because they create adversity and conflict with academic values? Or do unions support those values by creating community and collegiality? Unions in Academia is the essential reader for faculty, students, administrators, and anyone else trying to answer those questions."
