Style Test Area 1
What Is This Mess?
You've reached the GPL website's style test area. This page is not designed to convey any useful information. It is merely a tool that the web developer uses to see what proposed style changes will look like before rolling them out. So, this page contains text that is marked up as being a variety of different things (headers, paragraphs, sidebars, links, and so on and so forth), but the actual words are unimportant.
Header (link, em, strong, both, Color)
Sub-header (link, em, strong, both)
[Portrait of Andrew Carnegie]
This portrait of Andrew Carnegie demonstrates what a captioned image looks like.
This is a paragraph, which contains some text. This is a link, within the paragraph. Text can also be emphasized, strongly emphasized, or both. Links may be visited or unvisited and may point to a position in the current document, which will appear in the document as its own name name anchor. Oh, and it's possible to have a plain anchor that is neither a link nor a named position.
Watch this space for more information.
Bits and Pieces
Let's have a look at colors one, two, three, four, and five, eh?
[clip-art of a telephone]
Hmmm... let's see what a loose floating image does. There should be a picture of a phone to the left here. Also, ordinal numbers: 1st, 2nd, 3rd. I suppose I should also test subscripts, so H2O, CO2, C12H22O11. Does any of that mess up the line spacing, or is it alright?
News items and such often have dates on them. Well, how about July 4th, 1976? Also, let's see what an email address looks like.

New Fiction Book:
When You Read This by Mary Adkins
[book cover]
For four years, Iris Massey worked side by side with PR maven Smith Simonyi, helping clients perfect their brands. Now Iris has died, taken by terminal illness at only thirty-three.
Adrift without his friend and colleague, Smith is surprised to discover that in her last six months, Iris created a blog filled with sharp and often funny musings on the end of a life not quite fulfilled. She also made one final request: for Smith to get her posts published as a book.
With the help of his charmingly eager, if overbearingly forthright, new intern Carl, Smith tackles the task of fulfilling Iris' last wish. Before he can do so, though, he must get the approval of Iris' big sister Jade, an haute cuisine chef who's been knocked sideways by her loss. Each carrying their own baggage, Smith and Jade end up on a collision course with their own unresolved pasts and with each other.

Under Occupation by Alan Furst
[book cover]
Occupied Paris, 1942. Just before he dies, a man being chased by the Gestapo hands off a strange-looking document to the unsuspecting novelist Paul Ricard.
It looks like a blueprint of a part for a military weapon, one that might have important information for the Allied forces. Ricard realizes he must try to get the diagram into the hands of members of the resistance network.
As Ricard finds himself drawn deeper and deeper into anti-Nazi efforts and increasingly dangerous espionage assignments, he travels to Germany and along the escape routes of underground resistance safe houses to spy on Nazi maneuvers. When he meets the mysterious and beautiful Leila, a professional spy, they begin to work together to get crucial information out of France and into the hands of the Allied forces in London.

101 Ways to Go Zero Waste by Kathryn Kellogg
[book cover]
We all know how important it is to reduce our environmental footprint, but it can be daunting to know where to begin.
Enter Kathryn Kellogg, who can fit all her trash from the past two years into a 16-ounce mason jar. How? She starts by saying no to straws and grocery bags, and yes to a reusable water bottle and compostable dish scrubbers.
In 101 Ways to Go Zero Waste, Kellogg shares these tips and more, along with DIY recipes for beauty and home; advice for responsible consumption and making better choices for home goods, fashion, and the office; and even secrets for how to go waste free at the airport. It's not about perfection, she says. It's about making better choices.
This is a practical, friendly blueprint of realistic lifestyle changes for anyone who wants to reduce their waste.

New Non-fiction Book:
Stop Missing Your Life: How to be Deeply Present in an Un-Present World by Cory Muscara
[book cover]
Mindfulness teacher Cory Muscara takes us on a journey into the heart of what is required for real change, growth, and happiness.
He exposes how the phrase "be present" has become little more than a platitude, imbued with the misguided message to be present just for the sake of being present, and reveals how to achieve true Presence: a quality of being that is unmistakably attractive about a person, and one that only comes when we've peeled back the layers of guarding that prevent us from being our full, honest, and integrated selves in the world.
Muscara shows how we build internal walls, what he describes as a Pain Box inhibiting us from living a deeply connected and meaningful life. He offers a four-part FACE model (Focus, Allow, Curiosity, and Embodiment) that helps chip away at those walls and builds our capacity to experience the richness of our lives. Stop Missing Your Life ultimately teaches how we can find peace in the chaos and become better people for our families, our communities, and our world.
