Crafts for Senior Citizens : A Two Year Long, Ready to Use Program

By: Christine Anderson

This book is designed to provide a two year craft program that can be easily implemented at senior centers. Because a large amount of craft preparation needs to be done before the craft can be taken to a senior citizens home, the book is ideal for large groups. It is composed mainly of paper crafts, as they are relatively inexpensive and easy to make. All of the crafts have been taught successfully at senior citizen homes. Though it was written to be used with seniors, the crafts are great for people of any age....

Working with the Senior Citizens: For those of you who have never before worked with senior citizens, here are some tips to keep in mind. Remember to:  Speak loudly and clearly --many of them are hard of hearing --if they don’t respond to a question, chances are they couldn’t hear you, so ask again  Offer to assist them on each step, if need be, do the entire project for them --many of them have arthritis or limited mobility in their hands  Ask them for their name and about their day --most enjoy talking to young people☺  Compliment them or their project  Let them choose the colors they want to use on their project...

“A person waking up today from a hundred years' sleep would get quite a fright. Many things would have changed, but I think the most shocking impression would be that the world has become much smaller. Not only can we travel around the globe in much less than 80 days, but money and information can do so in seconds.

The Real Value of Communication : Experience our game changing scenario: Mainz — Hometown of Johannes Gutenberg and hometown of the culture of communication

By: Mrs. Şükran Ceren Salalı; Andreas Boris Weber

• A very unique ValueArt+Com project. Composed in Mainz/Germany, the hometown of Johannes Gutenberg and the hometown of the culture of communication. • Dedicated to all of us, to become or to keep smart communicators! • The iBook publishing process for iPad will start soon. Via gutenberg.org you could have a preview (without animations and videos, for sure!). Background „The moment I have prepared the scenario for my research project, I wanted it to be something entertaining but serious to provide an effective scientific learning about the real value of communication via experiencing a beautiful city; Mainz as a cultural center of communication. As a Sociology student from Bogazici University, Istanbul, I have created this iBook with a professional analyst, Andreas Weber, in order to showcase the interviews, blog posts and researches we have created as a content for Value Art+Communication Project as a part of my official work in Value Communication AG, Mainz.“ About the iBook It is all about art and culture as key issues of communication! — The German city Mainz is situated in Rheinland-Pfalz state with a rich c...

“Johannes Gutenberg was our first geek, the original technology entrepreneur, who had to grapple with all the challenges a Silicon Valley startup faces today.” —Jeff Jarvis (Introduction by 
Şükran Ceren Salalı, Value Art+Communication Fellow, Istanbul) I always enjoy meeting new people from various countries and different perspectives as a Sociology student from Turkey. After doing my AFS Exchange Program in Belgium and getting involved in an international peace project in the Netherlands, I said “why not to apply the Erasmus internship program which gives an opportunity to work in different European countries for 3 months”. The city of Mainz was a kind of un-existing place for me a few months ago. I have never heard the name of this beautiful city when I was in Turkey. I think, and also what I have heard so far, when it comes to speaking about Germany, is that most of the people from other countries only know; cities like Berlin, Frankfurt, or Nürnberg, but not Mainz. When I have arrived here to start my Erasmus internship in an international research and publishing company, Value Communication AG in where I get the chan...

Wommack’s The Art of Parenting : Lessons from Parents & Mentors of Extraordinary Americans

By: David Wommack

Let's be honest. No other parenting books even try to show you how to make your son or daughter a great American. We do. Thirty-one (31) great men and women from across many professions, genders, politics, religions, and walks of life--the products of extraordinary parenting and mentoring. This book offers the exact techniques, words, phrases, mantras --to propel your offspring to incredible success -- toward rich, vivid lives. They worked for those parents and mentors. They can and will work for you too. Mantras are the 21st Century way to lock your ideals, standards, ethics, and principles into formative minds. By definition they demand repetition. The phrasing may stay the same or almost the same. The stories, the elaboration, the background, the colors may bob and weave. But the cores of the mantras stay fixed. Stars to remember and guide one through life. MANTRAS. The exact words used to motivate and guide those great future Americans. Distilled from over 500 biographies. These techniques, these words and phrases, WORK! This book uniquely brings you the best parenting and mentoring advice. Straight up. No bull. The EXACT, SPECI...

Introduction An easier childhood? There is a deep-seated river that contrarily runs through most American parenting. The belief that “my children” should have it easier than we, as parents, had it — when we were growing up. That is the worst mantra of parents! Spoiling your kids is the worst curse you can bestow upon your kids and yourself. It will come back to haunt you. Over and over and over. And then it will be too late. An old adage. Well, maybe we’ve grown up a little and are now more accomplished at avoiding corporeal punishment, except in the most egregious situations. But we continue to spoil them in other ways. Excess money. Excess toys. Excess time on their hands with nothing constructive to do. Excess trivia in their lives....
