A woman recalls the freedom and power of childhood games; a surprise anniversary party goes awry when the husband is hospitalized and the fault lines and strengths of a family are laid bare; a teacher rediscovers her calling amidst unthinkable tragedy; a lonely woman recognizes her responsibility to her sister's troubled life-in this collection of stories the prose and passion of life are brought together in ways that show both the complexity and the simplicity of living. Told against a Midwest background, they focus mainly on women's experiences, yet nonetheless reflect universal conditions. This is what makes Karen Gettert Shoemaker's style so affecting and her stories so appealing. These stories show the importance of knowing the preciousness of this life, whatever form it takes. These are simple stories, told with a grace and elegance that belies their joyful art and craft. "Crafted with care and grace. This book establishes Shoemaker as a talented chronicler of rural life and domestic gestures, with an eye for what's funny in grief, and what's sad in humor."-Publishers Weekly "Short stories at their finest can be the ultimate in fiction: compressed gems that in a few words can create memorable people and emotions out of thin air. Shoemaker's first collection contains such, and readers will laugh and cry at her spare portrayals of loss and friendship... . This is a powerful and valuable collection."-Library Journal

The WHO Regional Office for Europe set up a working group of experts to provide scientific advice to the Member States for the development of future legislation and policy action in the area of assessment and control of night noise exposure. The working group reviewed available scientific evidence on the health effects of night noise, and derived health-based guideline values. In December 2006, the working group and stakeholders from industry, government and nongovernmental organizations reviewed and reached general agreement on the guideline values and key texts for the final document of the "Night noise guidelines for Europe". Considering the scientific evidence on the thresholds of night noise exposure indicated by "Lnight,outside" [L suffix night,outside] as defined in the Environmental Noise Directive (2002/49/EC), an Lnight, outside of 40 dB should be the target of the night noise guideline (NNG) to protect the public, including the most vulnerable groups such as children, the chronically ill and the elderly. "Lnight,outside" value of 55 dB is recommended as an interim target for the countries where the NNG cannot be achieved in the short term for various reasons, and where policy-makers choose to adopt a stepwise approach. These guidelines are applicable to the Member States of the European Region, and may be considered as an extension to, as well as an update of, the previous WHO "Guidelines for community noise" (1999).

Night Noise

Night is seldom quiet. It is as though noise were invented there. It is the darkness that makes us see the sound. Having very little light in the black racket always puts us on our toes. My nights have a lot of noise.

Under Attack

A while after I first started noticing the night sounds, as time went on, the night time had truly become unpleasant. At least it was for me. The night sounds had gotten quite a bit worse over time. The house did not seem to rest.

A firsthand account of living and surviving in a haunted house. It was during the 1960's, lasting about three long years, beginning when I was 9 years old. My recently widowed mother was a sensitive and because she understood what was happening, was able to keep us safe. There really are things that some would call demons. There are other entities as well, not always hostile. Sometimes seen, sometimes heard. Sometimes doing more than that. They don't interact the same with everyone. I'll show you some of the things they do, how they can affect you as they did me and my family. Why they do what they do, I don't know. It can just be bumps in the night, or they can drive you into depression or insanity. They can make you sick and they can physically hurt you, or worse. Understanding what is going on can be the key to survival. My book doesn't have all the answers, but it may provide insight for the thoughtful reader. It is written in the hope that it will be of some use to someone who needs it.
