No Place To Go: How Public Toilets Fail Our Private Needs Audiobook

No Place To Go: How Public Toilets Fail Our Private Needs

Author: Lezlie Lowe Narrator: Amanda Wood Release Date: May 2021

This book is Number One in addressing the politics of where we're allowed to 'go' in public. Adults don't talk about the business of doing our business. We work on one assumption: the world of public bathrooms is problem- and politics-free. No Place To Go: How Public Toilets Fail our Private Needs reveals the opposite is true. No Place To Go is a toilet tour from London to San Francisco to Toronto and beyond. From pay potties to deserted alleyways, No Place To Go is a marriage of urbanism, social narrative, and pop culture that shows the ways - momentous and mockable - public bathrooms just don't work. Like, for the homeless, who, faced with no place to go sometimes literally take to the streets. (Ever heard of a municipal poop map?) For people with invisible disabilities, such as Crohn's disease, who stay home rather than risk soiling themselves on public transit routes. For girls who quit sports teams because they don't want to run to the edge of the pitch to pee. Celebrities like Lady Gaga and Bruce Springsteen have protested bathroom bills that will stomp on the rights of transpeople. And where was Hillary Clinton after she arrived back to the stage late after the first commercial break of the live-televised Democratic leadership debate in December 2015? Stuck in a queue for the women's bathroom. Peel back the layers on public bathrooms and it's clear many more people want for good access than have it. Public bathroom access is about cities, society, design, movement, and equity. The real question is: Why are public toilets so crappy?

THE REVOLT OF 1857: WAR OF INDEPENDENCE Audiobook

THE REVOLT OF 1857: WAR OF INDEPENDENCE

Author: Aditya Narrator: Aditya Release Date: May 2021

The Indian Rebellion of 1857 was a major, but ultimately unsuccessful, uprising in India in 1857–58 against the rule of the British East India Company, which functioned as a sovereign power on behalf of the British Crown.[4][5] The rebellion began on 10 May 1857 in the form of a mutiny of sepoys of the Company's army in the garrison town of Meerut, 40 mi (64 km) northeast of Delhi (that area is now Old Delhi). It then erupted into other mutinies and civilian rebellions chiefly in the upper Gangetic plain and central India,[a][6][b][7] though incidents of revolt also occurred farther north and east.[ By Aditya Narrated by Aditya Kumar

The Nesting Place: It Doesn't Have to Be Perfect to Be Beautiful Audiobook

The Nesting Place: It Doesn't Have to Be Perfect to Be Beautiful

Author: Myquillyn Smith Narrator: Lisa Wright Release Date: April 2021

Popular blogger and author of Cozy Minimalist Home Myquillyn Smith (The Nester) helps readers find beauty in imperfection and freedom to take risks to create the home--and life--they've always wanted. This beautiful four-color book is full of photos and creative, easy ideas for arranging, decorating, and cultivating a welcoming home. Myquillyn Smith is all about embracing reality--especially when it comes to decorating a home bursting with boys, pets, and all the unpredictable messes of life. In The Nesting Place, Myquillyn shares the secrets of decorating for real people--and it has nothing to do with creating a flawless look to wow your guests. It has everything to do with embracing the natural imperfection and chaos of daily living. Drawing on her years of experience creating beauty in her 13 different homes, Myquillyn will show you how to think differently about the true purpose of your home and simply and creatively tailor it to reflect you and your unique style--without breaking the bank or stressing over comparisons. Full of easy tips, simple steps, and practical advice, The Nesting Place will give you the courage to take risks with your home and transform it into a place that's inviting and warm for family and friends. There is beauty in the lived-in and loved-on and just-about-used-up, Myquillyn says, and welcoming that imperfection wholeheartedly just might be the most freeing thing you'll ever do.

Ciudad feminista: La lucha por el espacio en un mundo diseñado por hombres Audiobook

Ciudad feminista: La lucha por el espacio en un mundo diseñado por hombres

Author: Leslie Kern Narrator: Cecilia Bona Release Date: April 2021

Ciudad feminista de Leslie Kern explica con ejemplos prácticos cómo la planificación de los espacios públicos diseñados desde y hacia una experiencia masculina afecta a las mujeres y otras identidades. El espacio público no es neutral. Los metros cuadrados asignados a los baños públicos y la forma de segmentarlos, las paradas de colectivos, la iluminación de las calles, caminar entre la gente en una avenida principal, o sentarse a leer en un bar tienen distintas implicancias si se piensa en el cruce del género con otras variables como: la etnicidad, la edad, la diversidad funcional, la clase social y la identidad sexual. Es imposible transitar este libro y volver a mirar la ciudad de la misma forma. 'Como mujer, nunca había conocido un anonimato o una invisibilidad totales en la ciudad. La anticipación constante de una situación de acoso significaba que dejarse fluir en la multitud fuera siempre una posibilidad algo esquiva. Con todo, los privilegios de tener piel blanca y un cuerpo sin discapacidades me garantizaban algún grado de invisibilidad.' Leslie Kern

Shikake: The Japanese Art of Shaping Behavior Through Design Audiobook

Shikake: The Japanese Art of Shaping Behavior Through Design

Author: Naohiro Matsumura Narrator: David Shih Release Date: March 2021

We are living in a time when behavioral change is necessary for our health and survival. Yet we find it exceedingly difficult to transform our own habits, let alone those of other people. Enter Naohiro Matsumura, whose powerful new design method is as astonishingly simple in its logic as it is sophisticated in its psychology. It allows any of us to address challenges in our homes, our public spaces, and our social interactions. As Matsumura shows, a shikake-or 'device' in Japanese-is a design that exerts influence on us through subtle nudging, rather than direct command; it encourages a particular behavior without telling its (often unwitting) user the primary purpose of that behavior. For example: footprints in a store guide shoppers and keep them socially distant; a basketball hoop placed over a trash can entices children to tidy up their rooms; a symbol of a shrine in a public square encourages respectfulness; and a staircase painted to look like piano keys prompts exercise through play. Combining traditional Japanese aesthetics with the lessons of behavioral economics, Matsumura reveals how to identify the hidden design cues that already shape our world, and how shikakes can help us confront some of the most pressing challenges of our era, from pandemics to declining civic engagement to climate change and beyond.

Building a Sustainable Home: Practical Green Design Choices for Your Health, Wealth and Soul Audiobook

Building a Sustainable Home: Practical Green Design Choices for Your Health, Wealth and Soul

Author: Melissa Rappaport Schifman Narrator: Randye Kaye Release Date: February 2021

Whether the listener is building a new home or doing a minor remodel, a homeowner needs a framework by which to guide their decisions. These decisions are based on values, and the author posits that there are really only three reasons to go green: ● For Our Health: By building more sustainably, we reduce our exposure to harmful chemicals and toxins. ● For Our Wealth: By building a more durable home and being more efficient with resources like water and electricity, we reduce our monthly utility bills and ongoing maintenance expenses. ● For Our Soul: Collectively doing the right thing for our planet does make a difference-and that is soul-nourishing. The green building movement has produced hundreds of 'how-to' books and websites that are filled with tips about green building and what homeowners should do to go green. While helpful and informative, when it comes to making actual purchasing and installation decisions, these books do not make it any easier for a homeowner to prioritize against a budget. Here, Melisssa Rappaport Schifman shares her knowledge and experience for others to use in their journey toward a greener way of living.

A History of the Church Through It's Buildings Audiobook

A History of the Church Through It's Buildings

Author: Allan Doig Narrator: John Curless Release Date: January 2021

A History of the Church through its Buildings takes the reader to meet people who lived through momentous religious changes in the very spaces where the story of the Church took shape. Buildings are about people, the people who conceived, designed, financed, and used them. Their stories become embedded in the very fabric itself, and as the fabric is changed through time in response to changing use, relationships, and beliefs, the architecture becomes the standing history of passing waves of humanity. This process takes on special significance in churches, where the arrangement of the space places members of the community in relationship with one another for the performance of the church's rites and ceremonies. Moreover, architectural forms and building materials can be used to establish relationships with other buildings in other places and other times. Coordinated systems of signs, symbols, and images proclaim beliefs and doctrine, and in a wider sense carry extended narratives of the people and their faith. Looking at the history of the church through its buildings allows us to establish a tangible connection to the lives of the people involved in some of the key moments and movements that shaped that history, and perhaps even a degree of intimacy with them. Standing in the same place where the worshippers of the past preached and taught, or in a space they built as a memorial, touching the stone they placed, or marking their final resting-place, holding a keepsake they treasured or seeing a relic they venerated, probably comes as close to a shared experience with these people as it is possible to come. Perhaps for a fleeting moment at such times their faces may come more clearly into focusEL
