Removing PDF toolbar: When I installed the full Adobe Creative Suite Professional, it placed a file named PDFMakerLib in the Microsoft Office directory. This file puts a PDF toolbar into Office applications that refuses to stay where you want it and always appears on launch whether you've selected it or not. To remove it from Office X, delete (or move) PDFMakerLib from the Microsoft Office directory (I moved mine into a subdirectory in case I want to move it back in order to use it). In the case of Office 2004, delete (or move) the following files from /Applications/Microsoft Office 2004:

Charles Burchfield (1893-1967)

Slice PDF June 09, 2014

charles burchfield


William Charles Burchfield et sa femme Alice Murphy mirent au monde six enfants à Astabula, dans l’Ohio. Le cinquième, Charles Ephraim

Burchfield, est né le 9 avril 1893. Il n’y avait pas d’artistes dans la famille, et le petit Charles, qui était timide, se fondit dans la masse. Son père mourut lorsqu’il avait quatre ans. Alice prépara les enfants et leurs affaires et les emmena vivre dans la maison de sa famille à Salem. Là-bas, ses deux oncles célibataires lui achetèrent une maison de six pièces où elle put vivre sans payer de loyer.

Il passa une enfance typique dans cette petite ville fondée par les

Quakers : il passait les étés pieds nus et était gâté par ses oncles, il traversait les champs et les bois pour rejoindre un endroit où se baigner ou un terrain de baseball. Ce qui caractérisait majoritairement

Charles était son besoin de dessiner et de peindre dès qu’il le pouvait.

Avant même d’entrer au CP, il prit pour habitude d’emporter partout un carnet à dessins. Il prenait pour sujets l’abondance de fleurs, de collines et de bois, d’animaux petits et grands qui peuplaient le paysage de la campagne. La concentration nécessaire au dessin correspondait à sa nature : il était calme, évitait la foule, et restait le plus possible en retrait. C’était le gamin timide du quartier.

CHAPTER THREE: Naming and labelling

Slice ePub May 23, 2014

My first journal publication, which led to other invitations to write, appeared in 1976, in the journal Contact, which addressed the interface between pastoral care and counselling and disciplines such as the social sciences, psychology, and theology. I represented the then Association of Pastoral Care and Counselling on the journal's editorial board. I was working at that time in the Student Health service at the University of Leicester, where I was the sole therapist. My colleagues were doctors who, for the most part, were psychologically minded, and not usually as those described in this article. Nevertheless, the experience of being immersed in the medical world, and engaging in conversations which certainly did include technical terms that were sometimes foreign to me, no doubt forced me to think about the whole diagnostic process in medicine, and how it related to the work I was doing with the clients referred to me by the medical staff. It was, in one sense, not a very original idea, and I was soon to discover that there was plenty of criticism of the psychiatric medical model even within psychiatry itself. However, the concept of naming, which features in the second half of the chapter, was a more original idea, and it is that part of the original paper that I later expanded when asked to talk about the subject. Byatt's writing made a particular impression on me; and that part of the paper also formed a significant section of the second chapter of my book The Presenting Past (2006). Much has changed since the paper was first written— with many more general practices, or primary care as it is now known, including counsellors in the team. This has influenced my revision of the paper for publication here, although I suspect that some of the issues I raise in the first half are as relevant to those counsellors in their relationships with medical staff as they were for me when I started my career in counselling and psychotherapy.

Slice PDF May 18, 2014


Wanted: Ferry Pilots

fter the attack on Pearl Harbor, all airfields within fifty miles of the U.S. coastline were shut down. That included East Boston Airport and, consequently, Inter

City Aviation. Bob Love was ordered to Washington, D.C., as part of General Olds’s Ferrying Command. The Loves prepared to move to the D.C. area to accommodate his new job.

Maj. Robert H. Baker arrived at Logan Field, Dundalk, Maryland, near Baltimore, January 5, 1942. His orders were to set up the Northeast Sector, Domestic Wing of the Ferrying Command. Baker had been a flying officer in World War I and prior to assignment to the Ferrying Command was with the 154th

Observation Squadron of the Arkansas National Guard.1

On March 11, 1942, with General Olds’s recommendation,

Nancy Love went to work for Baker in the Operations Office of the Northeast Sector, located in the Martin Plant (where the

B-26 bomber was built) in Baltimore.2 Her job included mapping ferry flights and routes, learning military procedures, and helping find sources for pilots. Since gas for the family automobile was hard to get, Nancy commuted to work in the Loves’
