A Different Pond Summary : A 2018 Caldecott Honor Book that Kirkus Reviews calls "a must-read for our times," A Different Pond is an unforgettable story about a simple event - a long-ago fishing trip. Graphic novelist Thi Bui and acclaimed poet Bao Phi deliver a powerful, honest glimpse into a relationship between father and son - and between cultures, old and new. As a young boy, Bao and his father awoke early, hours before his father's long workday began, to fish on the shores of a small pond in Minneapolis. Unlike many other anglers, Bao and his father fished for food, not recreation. A successful catch meant a fed family. Between hope-filled casts, Bao's father told him about a different pond in their homeland of Vietnam. Thi Bui's striking, evocative art paired with Phi's expertly crafted prose has earned this powerful picture books six starred reviews and numerous awards.

Pond Aquaculture Water Quality Management Summary : The efficient and profitable production of fish, crustaceans, and other aquatic organisms in aquaculture depends on a suitable environment in which they can reproduce and grow. Because those organisms live in water, the major environ mental concern within the culture system is water quality. Water supplies for aquaculture systems may naturally be oflow quality or polluted by human activity, but in most instances, the primary reason for water quality impairment is the culture activity itself. Manures, fertilizers, and feeds applied to ponds to enhance production only can be partially converted to animal biomass. Thus, at moderate and high production levels, the inputs of nutrients and organic matter to culture units may exceed the assimilative capacity of the ecosystems. The result is deteriorating water quality which stresses the culture species, and stress leads to poor growth, greater incidence of disease, increased mortality, and low produc tion. Effluents from aquaculture systems can cause pollution of receiving waters, and pollution entering ponds in source water or chemicals added to ponds for management purposes can contaminate aquacultural products. Thus, water quality in aquaculture extends into the arenas of environmental protection and food quality and safety. A considerable body of literature on water quality management in aquaculture has been accumulated over the past 50 years. The first attempt to compile this information was a small book entitled Water Quality in Warmwater Fish Ponds (Boyd I 979a).

The Ghost Clause Summary : National Book Award Finalist Howard Norman delivers another "provocative . . . haunting"* novel, this time set in a Vermont village and featuring a missing child, a newly married private detective, and a highly relatable ghost (*Janet Maslin, New York Times) Simon Inescort is no longer bodily present in his marriage. It's been several months since he keeled over the rail of a Nova Scotia-bound ferry, a massive heart attack to blame. Simon's widow, Lorca Pell, has sold their farmhouse to newlyweds Zachary and Muriel--after revealing that the deed contains a "ghost clause," an actual legal clause, not unheard of in Vermont, allowing for reimbursement if a recently purchased home turns out to be haunted. In fact, Simon finds himself still at home: "Every waking moment, I'm astonished I have any consciousness . . . What am I to call myself now, a revenant?" He spends time replaying his marriage in his own mind, as if in poignant reel-to-reel, while also engaging in occasionally intimate observation of the new homeowners. But soon the crisis of a missing child, a local eleven-year-old, threatens the tenuous domestic equilibrium, as the weight of the case falls to Zachary, a rookie private detective with the Green Mountain Agency. The Ghost Clause is a heartrending, affirming portrait of two marriages--one in its afterlife, one new and erotically charged--and of the Vermont village life that sustains and remakes them.

On the Pond Summary : In this love letter disguised as an anthology, author Ted Rulseh expresses his deep affinity with that singular body of water we call Lake Michigan. In a collection of 107 seasonally grouped essays that first appeared in his regular column in the Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter, his easy prose is at once rich and satisfyingly restrained. While he waxes nearly poetic in some passages, he never allows his writing to wallow in cheap sentimentality. Instead, he lets the life of the Lake, his hometown of Two Rivers, and adjoining lakeshore communities speak for itself, with quietly compelling results. On the Pond evokes a sense of place strong enough to take a rightful position alongside the works of the most celebrated American writers. With the eye of a writer, the soul of an outdoorsman, and the heart of a small-town boy. Ted Rulseh brings home the essence of life next to one of the most fabled of the Great Lakes, in all its many moods. From the sudden and unpredictable storms of autumn and shrieking winter gales to the tentative warmth of spring and summer's full glory, Lake Michigan is revealed as an alternately soothing and tempestuous -- but never dull -- neighbor. A pleasing chronicle of small-town life that manages to hang on amid the relentless march of time and technology, this book is also a keenly observant naturalist's journal. Let it take you away for a while to a place where gulls wheel above steel-gray waves, and dune walkers pull their jackets a little tighter. Book jacket.
