This beautifully and colourful illustrated book is very suitable for children and people around them who are confronted with gender dysphoria. When you have a very good idea about who you are, but your surroundings expect different behaviour from you because of your appearance; that can be confusing. Who are you then? Your inside or your outside? This book can help to give insight and meaning to children who are confronted with gender dysphoria. It is clear from the start of this book that Gus is blue and, therefore, displays blue behaviour. The fact that his outside appearance is orange forces people around him to expect orange behaviour of him. This is difficult for Gus. Children, but also adults, can imagine that Gus wants to do blue things because he 'is ' blue. And that he finds it hard to be like orange geese, even though he looks like them. What happens to Gus will be very recognisable. Everybody can easily place themselves in his position and wonder how to deal with it. And in the end, this applies to us all. We don't have keys to our hearts, we have to rely on what others say, they feel and believe about themselves. It is important not to judge children who have to walk this path. Everything is always the same in the beautiful and colourful land of the Key Geese. Blue is always blue. Orange is always orange. Also for Gus, an ordinary little gosling with a blue heart. He is nearly ready to receive his colour, and to become what he is: blue. Suddenly something goes wrong. Gus, with the blue heart, accidentally ends up with the orange goslings. By a twist of fate, Gus ends up with an orange outside that doesn't match his blue heart. This is a story about a brave little gosling that, through trial and error, finds out who he really is. Gender dysphoria or gender identity disorder (GID) is the dysphoria (distress) a person experiences as a result of the sex and gender they were assigned at birth.

Gus S. Wortham was a good businessman. Among other enterprises, he started a highly successful insurance company, American General, and helped to shape the economic institutions of Houston. Gus Wortham was a civic leader, who worked actively in the Chamber of Commerce to influence the city's economic climate and who left the city a legacy of cultural institutions, including the Wortham Theater Center. Gus Wortham was a rancher and land developer. Land: "They aren't making any more if it," he liked to say. So he bought it, developed it, and built a business with it. In short, he became one of the most influential men in the history of Houston. This is the story of his life, his business, his city. Company records and interviews with Wortham's surviving friends and associates combine to make it a thorough account. "Mr. Wortham had an interesting philosophy about several matters in life," writes his longtime friend and business partner Sterling C. Evans in the Foreword. "One was on dollars. With the business dollar, it was immoral not to make money and one had to make sure to receive full value. With the pleasure dollar, if one could afford it, enjoy it and never look back." This old-school Southwestern gentleman lived a life worthy of a movie, and his company, American General, has shaped a city worthy of a television series of its own. Urban and business historians alike will find this book a fascinating study, and those who know, or want to know, Houston will find it an enlightening chronicle.

The gb-glucuronidase (GUS) gene is extremely useful as a reporter of the expression of introduced genes and can be used in organisms where other reporter genes are useless. Thus, the GUS gene is the reporter gene of choice for transgenic plant research. Not only can this assay be used to detect whether a gene is being expressed, but it can be used to determine the location of the gene product within cells. Low cost is another advantage of this assay. GUS Protocols provides instructions and essential background information that will enable researchers to effectively use the GUS gene as a reporter of the expression of introduced genes. First book on the GUS reporter system Up-to-date reference lists following each of the fourteen chapters Comb-bound for convenient bench-top use Written by leading authorities including R.A. Jefferson, inventor of the GUS assay Illustrated with color GUS detection by fluorometric, spectrophotometric, and histochemical methods Fast, automated assays

The heart of Gus Van Sant: Icons is a previously unpublished interview with Van Sant conducted in Portland in June 2015 by Matthieu OrlEans, the exhibition's curator. In a wide-ranging conversation, the two men discuss the whole scope of Van Sant's work and inspirations. Van Sant connects himself to a lineage of other artists, citing William Burroughs, William Eggleston, Harmony Korine and Ed Ruscha as influences. The filmmaker offers firsthand anecdotes and in-depth appraisals of the production processes of each of his movies, from the experimental shorts of the 1970s to his most recent film, Sea of Trees, presented at the Cannes Festival in May 2015.

In October 1999, Abdurrahman Wahid, almost blind and recovering from a nearfatal stroke, was elected as Indonesia's fourth president. Referred to as 'Indonesia's surprising new president' by the Economist, the man who had commanded the highest respect of his fellow countrymen for his lifetime devotion to public service, liberal democracy and tolerant Islam, was impeached in humiliating and controversial circumstances less than two years later. Wise to some, insolent to others, Abdurrahman's mercurial style of leadership constantly confounded critics and ultimately caused him to be widely misunderstood by both domestic and international observers. For the first time, biographer Greg Barton delves beneath the surface and gives us a unique insight into the man and his world drawn from his long relationship with Gus Dur - including being at his side during the final extraordinary months of the presidency. Those interested in the drama of modern Indonesian politics will find this book provides a fascinating and invaluable account of the enigmatic Gus Dur.
