NYPL 53rd st by Ten Arquitectos

In a neighborhood dense with high-end retail, luxury residences, and blue-chip institutions and offices, this 30,000 square foot branch library will fulfill a much-needed role as a public space and a touchstone for the local community and visiting tourists. Despite the library’s site being predominantly below grade and set at the base of a new 40-story hotel, TEN Arquitectos’ design transforms the dark, subterranean space into an inviting, open and light-filled civic landscape in the heart of Manhattan.

  • Girl, around 11: I have this book I've checked out for the whole summer-vacation but I've finished it, can I return it?
  • Me: Yes, you can.
  • Girl: ... Can I still check out books?
  • Me: Eh .... ?
  • Girl: You know, because it's summer-vacation ...
  • Me: Of course. Of couse you can. You can check out as many as you can carry with you or as many as you can read. Go ahead!

           The Temple Of American Empire (New York Public Library)

The New York Public Library (NYPL) is a public library system in New York City. With nearly 53 million items, the New York Public Library is the second largest public library in the United States (behind the Library of Congress), and fourth largest in the world.[3] It is a private, non-governmental, independently managed, nonprofit corporation operating with both private and public financing.[4] The library has branches in the boroughs of Manhattan, The Bronx, and Staten Island, and affiliations with academic and professional libraries in the metropolitan area of New York State. The City of New York’s other two boroughs, Brooklyn and Queens, are served by the Brooklyn Public Library and the Queens Library, respectively. The branch libraries are open to the general public and consist of circulating libraries. The New York Public Library also has four research libraries which are open to the general public as well.

The library, officially chartered as The New York Public Library, Astor, Lenox and Tilden Foundations, was developed in the 19th century, founded from an amalgamation of grass-roots libraries, and social libraries of bibliophiles and the wealthy, aided by the philanthropy of the wealthiest Americans of their age.he New York Public Library (NYPL) is a public library system in New York City.

Empath/ Witchy Self- Care

This is going to be a list to help with self-care for empaths but it can be used for witches in general, I’ll be listing many tips. Some may work for you, others may not- feel free to alter them to fit you. The biggest strategy for empaths would be to have layers of wards and intentions around them and on them as a means of protecting themselves from energies that are not wanted and amplifying energies that are wanted/ needed.

Safe guarding your environment.

You can use sigils placed above doors, by your bed, and other places to promote health, good sleep, to keep away spirits, to ward against specific energies, etc. Whatever you need.

Smoke cleanse or cleanse with bells. Use a bell with a ring that inspires happiness or positivism in you. Make sure to get corners and dark spaces- they collect pockets of energy like more open spaces don’t.

Keep your spaces clean and organized- this gives less of a chance of ‘energy cobwebs’ and begets an overall peaceful energy.

Set your bed clothes and blankets with specific intentions or wards. Ideas for this include: anti nightmares, deep sleep, overall comfort, or encompassing love.

I had some time and thought I should give it a try. These are my real favorites, I left out WiPs and the ones I haven’t finished reading. (If you want some more ideas, then here is my bookmark page for spn on AO3)   I’m sure there’s gonna be a few everyone has read, but I couldn’t leave them out.

Unlikely Hero by Chancy_Lurking  
When Castiel calls Dean, after almost of decade of radio silence, for help after his daughter is kidnapped, it’s supposed to be a professional favor. But Dean’s life is never that simple and when old feelings get involved and stir up old demons, well… Why wouldn’t there be a little dose of Hell to top it all off?

Two years ago, the Denver library didn’t have a social worker on staff. Before Hardy, she says that the Denver Library was doing the best it could. Now it’s becoming a lot more common position for libraries.

“When I started, this was the third city to get a social worker in the library,” Hardy says. “And now they are dozens around the country.”

Hardy admits she never saw herself working for a library, simply because she knew it as the place “where I could come to get my books.” But she’s here, saying hello to patrons as she walks the seven floors of magazines, newspapers, and (yes) books. The building is huge — 540,000 square-feet. In 1990, Denver voters approved a $91.6 million ballot measure to build the central library and other branch locations.

Today, Hardy says this multi-million dollar building is basically serving as Denver’s largest day shelter.

“I think that, the reason people often come here though, even though there are some other day shelter spaces, is because there are things to do. And there’s resources, you can be another human in the community,” she says.

darkwingatlarge  asked:

How does one get a library job without a graduate degree? Is there any sort of jobs board specifically for library jobs? How does one get into a library sciences PhD program with no prior relevant experience or coursework?

Thank you for asking! I love questions! Here we go.

First, just to put it out there, you don’t need a graduate degree to get a job in a library. I worked as a page and library assistant in public libraries without a degree. Our library system’s cataloger and branch managers didn’t have grad degrees. If you want a “librarian” position (with the official title and everything), you do need a MLIS or MLS. Especially in academic and public libraries. If you’re interested in school libraries, it gets a little confusing. Ultimately, it varies depending on state and school district. Here in Utah, school districts only require that middle and high school librarians (not primary or elementary) have a library media endorsement and teacher certification. Most have a Masters in Education as well. Side note: There’s a bit of hmm… contention in the library world over whether or not an MLIS is truly necessary for a librarian position. I believe it is, but I may be in the minority. Fun discussion topic!

Second, there are many different ways to find library jobs even without a degree! Once again, it really depends on the type of library job you want and your preferred location. When I worked as a public librarian in Georgia, I would check out our state’s library job board and some regional ones. List-servs can also be helpful! State and regional library associations, ALA divisions, smaller library associations, etc. all have list-servs where members share job postings. New Members Round Table’s NMRT-L is a really good one to check out. But sometimes you have to be a member of the association or division to get access. ALA also has a decent job board. The Chronicle of Higher Education’s Chronicle Vitae is good if you’re looking to work in academic libraries. I Need a Library Job is another wonderful resource. LibGig provides an aggregation of library postings. There are definitely resources out there.

Finally, getting into a PhD program without an MLIS/MLS can be done, but it’s more work. In the School of Information at FSU where I got my PhD, they prefer that you have a MLIS, but it isn’t required. Instead, you would need to take additional coursework to bulk up your knowledge (basically get a MLIS while working on a PhD. I had a friend do this.). Obviously, this extends how long it will take you to complete the doctoral program. Other schools may just require you to take additional relevant courses but not complete another degree. Depends!

Disclaimer: I always tell people this if they are considering a PhD. There are maybe two reasons (top!) to get a PhD and so so many more not to. It’s a cruel, time consuming, and sometimes unbearable task to take on. Carefully think about why you want to get a PhD and what your end goals for it are. If you are in school, ask faculty members about the process and lifestyle. If possible, find a doctoral student for insight. You can usually find at least one huddled in a coffee shop at 9pm on a Friday quietly sobbing over a dissertation that will JUST NOT END and is slowly but surely destroying all of her mental functioning (Definitely wasn’t me.)

Anyway, wayyyyy more info than you wanted, but I hope some of it helps! Again, thank you for asking!

I've really been having an architectural love affair lately with my closest big city of Edmonton, AB. I searched your posts but found nothing, so local pride had me reach out to get your thoughts on some of our favorites along the river valley and downtown such as Hotel MacDonald, the Art Gallery of Alberta, Rogers Place, the Shaw Conference Center, Scotia Place or anything else you find interesting. Thanks for this blog, it's inspiring me to travel.

Thanks! Sorry for the oversight of not including any Edmonton on previous posts. Here are some examples of Edmonton’s architecture beyond those listed on your message:

Help!!

So this is less of me complaining and more of me not knowing what the fuck to do… but my sister and I both work a libraries, but in different counties. Mine is a main and hers is a branch library in her county, but there’s this creepy fucking guy we all call Fred.(idk if that’s his real name or not but it suits him) he’s gotten in trouble before for watching porn on the library computers before and he always prints out really REALLY questionable/just barely appropriate pictures of girls of questionable age. Then proceeds to lock himself in one of the only bathrooms that has a baby changing station for at least an hour. He does this at my library and hers, thankfully I don’t deal with him since I work in a different department that doesn’t deal with the public on a regular basis but he’s at her library almost every day. He hasn’t technically done anything that can let us kick him out permanently, but one of the other employees was pretty sure one of the pictures was def almost child porn. I am 100% sure this man is a pedophile and I have absolutely no idea what to do, bc my SIL can’t kick him out without proper cause, and I can’t kick him out until he’s been served 3 behavioral policies.(a 3 strikes type thing) plus I don’t know his last name or if fred is really his name, and I have no other evidence that he’s a pedo except for the creepy pictures he prints out and the fact that he was kicked out for a day bc of possible porn watching. The pics are always of girls that I am almost positive are younger then me, and I just turned 18 like 2 months ago. Im really afraid that if I don’t do anything now then something bad could happen and I would be so upset if it did. I just want him out of my library but if he was arrested for actually being a pedo I would be thrilled but please i just have no idea what else we could do! Help me please!!!

Translation: “Ao no Exorcist” Chapter 91 Translation Summary (SPOILERS!!)

So here is a rough translation summary of Chapter 91.  This chapter…wow, shit really hit the fan.  It’s been a long time coming, but there’s really no going back now, I think.  Anyway, please forgive any typos or mistakes.  And spoilers, of course.




Ao no Exorcist 91

This chapter is entitled “Longevity (or Felicitations) - Late Night to Early Morning” 

Preparations for the wedding are underway.  Sugaro recites a sutra and then helps his father get ready.  His father comments that it’s been a long time since they had a wedding there and that he would hold onto the day ‘tightly’.  He tells Suguro that he has the appearance of an ‘unsheathed sword’ since he became Lightning’s apprentice.  Sugaro is surprised he knew, but Tatsuma says he learned it from Shima’s son (we see a little graphic of the Shimas going crazy over finding out).  Sugaro starts to bring up something about Shirou Fujimoto, but thinks better of it and says “nevermind”…just at that moment, Yukio comes in and says that the landlady is calling for him.  He starts to say that he’s with his father right now, but then Gouzou says he’ll take over for Sugaro.  Tatsuma thanks Gouzou and Gouzou says after the ceremony is over, he would return back to work and mentions the “matter just now”.  Tatsuma asks him if they were able to capture something after that, but he replies no, and that they are investigating the underground library at the Endo branch HQ but that they haven’t found a way to forcibly summon Karura when it possesses a person.  He says that Karura can adapt to a body, and concludes that they may not be able to exorcise Karura when the time comes.  Tatsuma asks him to continue looking into it.

Sugaro joins everyone in the main hall and sits down next to Yukio.  Yukio asks him where everyone else is and he replies that he doesn’t know.  Yukio replies that he was told to sit there, and Sugaro says that’s because he is their teacher.  Suddenly Yukio asks Sugaro what he knows about their father and what Lightning is investigating.

It skips over to Bucharest, Romania, where a man is getting into a car.  He hears “Happy New Year, Dr. Dragresk” just as Lightning punches him in the face.  He knows who Lightning is by his reaction, and Lightning says “I was waiting for you to go to work alone, you’re the type of person who goes to work early on New Year’s…so am I”.  Lightning says he’s connected with the Illuminati.  Dragresk asks him if he’s serious, but Lightning replies “You’re going to keep up that act?”  Dragresk tries to deny it further, asking Lightning how he could be connected to the Illuminati.  Lightning says “if I can figure that mystery out, it’ll be perfect…and anyway, you are very close to the image of the traitor that I had in my mind.”  Lightning continues, “There’s no doubt that a person who keeps killing people for more than ten years would continue such a job.”  Lightning then starts attacking Dragresk, and asks him “Do you know my other popular name?  ‘Head Torturer’…”  Dragresk screams “Stop!!” and then we see that there’s a mark across Dragresk’s neck.  Lightning says “I knew it, it’s just like I thought.”  Then he says “I’m going home, I accomplished my mission”.  Dragresk is stunned that Lightning would do something like that and then stop.  He yells that he will report him to the top brass, and that Lightning is in danger.  Lightning says “Then I’d better hurry, I’ll report you, as well.”

Back at the wedding, Yukio is explaining that an old man named Misumi died immediately after Lightning came to visit the monastery.  He asks Sugaro if there’s any connection, and Sugaro says he can’t talk about it.  Suddenly Yukio looks normal again and says “I’m sorry for trying to get you to talk against your will.  It’s obvious that you can’t talk about the contents of a secretive investigation at a moment’s notice.”  Just then Rin and the others arrive and the ceremony begins.  We see the wedding and then get to the party afterwards.  Suddenly Sugaro gets a call so he takes it outside while Yukio looks at him suspiciously.  It’s from Lightning, and he wants Sugaro to come back the next morning.

Suddenly Yukio comes up from behind Sugaro and points a gun at his chin.  He says “Excuse me, please tell me about the birth of my brother and me.”  Sugaro is shocked, and Yukio asks him what he knows and to ‘please’ tell him (the most unsettling part is how polite he’s being here, honestly).  Sugaro thinks “What kind of face is that?” and asks Yukio “Are you going to shoot me…!?”  Yukio looks shocked, then looks a bit crazy.  He says “What am I doing…” and then says “I’m sorry, I made a mistake…it might be the alcohol.  Please forget it” and walks off.  Sugaro grabs him from behind and starts yelling at him (I mean, who wouldn’t?).  Yukio says “I’m sorry” again, but Sugaro isn’t having any of it.  Then Yukio says (with a creepy smile) “I’m your superior, please let me go.”  Sugaro does, but he still looks shocked.  Yukio keeps walking until Renzou stops him and says “You need to cut this out.”  He then tells Yukio to discuss it.  Yukio asks “Discuss…with whom? Sugaro?  You?  My brother?  PUHA HA!”  “Discussing it won’t lead to a resolution.  Because I’m different from everyone.”

Yukio gets a call from Shura, telling him and the ex-wires to come back immediately, and to turn on the tv.  Renzou asks him what’s going on, and they join everyone watching something on the tv (btw, Rin gives Yukio a very knowing look when he walks in here).  On tv, there’s a cyclops attacking a train station.

That’s it for this month.
