Our brains are extraordinary organs. They function best when they're nourished with love, healthy relationships, honesty and security. Children's brains that are exposed to repeated cruelty are instead shaped by shame, confusion, judgment, lies, and fear. This is important because our brains are where our thoughts originate and assemble. Our thoughts influence our emotions, decisions and behavior. God knew me in my Mother's womb. He knew I would have a turbulent childhood and my brain would be affected. He knew that because of it, I would be disillusioned with Him. He knew I would walk backward in the dark before I walked forward in the light. He knew He would eventually help me, save me, give me back my dignity, and bring me to victory. He gave me a penname and together, we've written about my journey. No person can love us like God does. He is love. He is also light. We are His children and we are meant to live in love and walk in light.

What is ear wax for? Do bacteria have sex? How do they put stripes in toothpaste? Does your nose run in space? What are stars made of? This book answers those tantalising or perplexing questions for which you thought you'd never find an answer. A book for the naturally curious, as well as those seekers after scientific truths, it unravels both those things we take for granted, such as when you boil an egg, why does the yolk stay in the middle, or why is the sky blue, as well as questions which probe deeply, such as, what does an atom look like, or what was there before the beginning of time? if you were to write in the dust on the moon, how big would the letters have to be so you could see them from earth without a telescope? Drawing on the expertise of a team of enthusiastic scientists around the world, authoritative, entertaining, and often a touch humorous, it will appeal to anyone who's ever been curious about life on earth.

Despite numerous studies, a lack of consensus still exists over many aspects of patellofemoral pain, instability, and arthritis. This book adopts an evidence-based approach to assess each of these topics in depth. The book reviews general features of clinical examination and global evaluation techniques including the use of different imaging methods, e.g. x-rays, CT, MRI, stress x-rays, and bone scan. Various conservative and surgical treatment approaches for each of the three presentations – pain, instability, and arthritis – are then explained and assessed. Postoperative management and options in the event of failed surgery are also evaluated. Throughout, careful attention is paid to the literature in an attempt to establish the level of evidence for the efficacy of each imaging and treatment method. It is hoped that this book will serve as an informative guide for the practitioner when confronted with disorders of the patellofemoral joint.

When the crack cocaine epidemic hit Detroit in the mid-1980, Moore like many of his peers turned to the church to avoid the onslaught, but when the Holy Ghost failed to protect him from drug related crimes and violence. He searched for an alternative form of spirituality. After overcoming homelessness, poverty and being diagnosed with the debilitating disease lupus, he discovered an ingenious way to connect to the Divine. By drawing upon Ancient Egyptian philosophy and Afro-spiritual practices, that gave him the tools to overcome his illness and greatly improve every aspect of his life. In this easy-to-read, simple yet motivational style memoir of self-discovery, Moore the son of a preacher explains how depression and despair led him to turn his back on God, but how anyone can rekindle this relationship by learning history, recognizing their ancestors, identifying with their archetypes or spiritual guardians, and acquiring knowledge of self.

Down the Up Staircase

Down the Up Staircase tells the story of one Harlem family across three generations, connecting its journey to the historical and social forces that transformed Harlem over the past century. Bruce D. Haynes and Syma Solovitch capture the tides of change that pushed blacks forward through the twentieth century—the Great Migration, the Harlem Renaissance, the early civil rights victories, the Black Power and Black Arts movements—as well as the many forces that ravaged black communities, including Haynes's own. As an authority on race and urban communities, Haynes brings unique sociological insights to the American mobility saga and the tenuous nature of status and success among the black middle class. In many ways, Haynes's family defied the odds. All four great-grandparents on his father's side owned land in the South as early as 1880. His grandfather, George Edmund Haynes, was the founder of the National Urban League and a protégé of eminent black sociologist W. E. B. Du Bois; his grandmother, Elizabeth Ross Haynes, was a noted children's author of the Harlem Renaissance and a prominent social scientist. Yet these early advances and gains provided little anchor to the succeeding generations. This story is told against the backdrop of a crumbling three-story brownstone in Sugar Hill that once hosted Harlem Renaissance elites and later became an embodiment of the family's rise and demise. Down the Up Staircase is a stirring portrait of this family, each generation walking a tightrope, one misstep from free fall.

Today’s kindergarten teachers face enormous challenges to reach district-mandated academic standards. This book presents a model for 21st-century kindergartens that is rooted in child-centered learning and also shaped by the needs and goals of the present day. Classroom teachers working with diverse populations of students and focusing on issues of social justice provide vivid descriptions of classroom life across urban and rural communities. Teacher reflections and commentary from the editors link teacher decisions to principles of good practice. Teaching Kindergarten illustrates how a progressive, learning-centered approach can not only meet the equity and accountability goals of the Common Core State Standards but go well beyond that to educate the whole child. Book Features: Rich examples of learner-centered teaching in diverse public school settings.Depictions of integrated curricula in science, social studies, math, arts, and language arts that address Common Core and other standards.Connections to recent developmental research and pedagogy.Programs promoting social and cultural awareness.Photographs of children’s projects and a list of children’s books. “The teachers you are about to read tell stories no one has heard before, at a time when it is difficult to hear the individual voices in the classroom. No grade level needs this soul-searching examination more than kindergarten. This book maps a remarkable number of journeys toward this goal. I hope teachers will be inspired to add their own voices to the process of renewal.” —Vivian Gussin Paley, internationally renowned educator, author, and classroom teacher “We need this book. It speaks eloquently to what good practice looks like in real schools, as well as what it means to be a good teacher. These are stories of amazing educators whose work addresses what equity is all about—starting with 5 year olds. It’s too bad the next 12 years of school are not more like these kindergarten classrooms.” —Deborah Meier, education activist, senior scholar at New York University’s Steinhardt School of Education

A luminous memoir about how friendship saved one woman's life, for anyone who has loved a friend who was sick, grieving, or lost--and for anyone who has struggled to seek or accept help Eva Hagberg Fisher spent her lonely youth looking everywhere for connection: drugs, alcohol, therapists, boyfriends, girlfriends. Sometimes she found it, but always temporarily. Then, at age thirty, an undiscovered mass in her brain ruptured. So did her life. A brain surgery marked only the beginning of a long journey, and when her illness hit a critical stage, it forced her to finally admit the long‑suppressed truth: she was vulnerable, she needed help, and she longed to grow. She needed true friendship for the first time. How to Be Loved is the story of how an isolated person's life was ripped apart only to be gently stitched back together through friendship, and the recovery--of many stripes--that came along the way. It explores the isolation so many of us feel despite living in an age of constant connectivity; how our ambitions sometimes pull us apart more than bring us together; and how a simple doughnut, delivered by a caring soul, can become the essence of what makes a life valuable. With gorgeous prose shot through with empathy, pain, fear, and the secret truths inside all of us, Eva writes about the friends who taught her to grow up and open her heart--and how the relentlessness of suffering can give rise to the greatest joy.
