We the Children Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

The first in a six-book series, We the Children follows Ben, his tech-savvy friend, Jill, and the class know-it-all, Robert, as they uncover a remarkable history and use it to protect the school. Sixth grader Benjamin Pratt loves history, which makes going to the historic Duncan Oakes School a pretty cool thing. But a wave of commercialization is hitting the area and his beloved school is slated to be torn down to make room for an entertainment park. This would be most kids’ dream—except there’s more to the developers than meets the eye… and more to the school. Because weeks before the wrecking ball is due to strike, Ben finds an old leather pouch that contains a parchment scroll with a note three students wrote in 1791. The students call themselves the Keepers of the School, and it turns out they’re not the only secret group to have existed at Duncan Oakes.

We, the Children of Cats Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

A man and woman find their genders and sexualities brought radically into question when their bodies sprout new parts, seemingly out of thin air…. A man travels from Japan to Latin America in search of revolutionary purpose and finds much more than he bargains for…. A journalist investigates a poisoning at an elementary school and gets lost in an underworld of buried crimes, secret societies, and haunted forests…. Two young killers, exiled from Japan, find a new beginning as resistance fighters in Peru…. These are but a few of the stories told in We, the Children of Cats, a new collection of provocative early works by Tomoyuki Hoshino, winner of the 2011 Kenzaburo Oe Award in Literature and author of the powerhouse novel Lonely Hearts Killer (PM Press, 2009). Drawing on sources as diverse as Borges, Nabokov, Garcia-Marquez, Kenji Nakagami and traditional Japanese folklore, Hoshino creates a challenging, slyly subversive literary world all his own. By turns teasing and terrifying, laconic and luminous, the stories in this anthology demonstrate Hoshino’s view of literature as “an art that wavers, like a heat shimmer, between joy at the prospect of becoming something else and despair at knowing that such a transformation is ultimately impossible…a novel’s words trace the pattern of scars left by the struggle between these two feelings.” Blending an uncompromising ethical vision with exuberant, freewheeling imagery and bracing formal experimentation, the five short stories and three novellas included in We, the Children of Cats show the full range and force of Hoshino’s imagination; the anthology also includes an afterword by translator and editor Brian Bergstrom and a new preface by Hoshino himself.

We, the Children Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

Welcome to the world of little ones and their secret, poetic language. When a five-year-old adopted from China can express her lack of personal value non-verbally in play and name the feeling “the pile of none,” it may be time for adults to tune into children’s play and non-verbal communication on a deeper level. The metaphorical language of very young children accurately reflects the story of their experiences and relationships, but it is too often dismissed by adults as merely child’s play. Parenting plans, weighty court decisions and child investigations that disregard the non-verbal testimony of children can contribute to bending a child’s development in the wrong direction damaging his or her life-long journey. Because of this miscommunication, children are often forced to spend time with the very people who hurt them and endure years of feeling invalidated, invisible, and powerless. It is common knowledge that childhood stories shape adult lives. In transforming old, worn-out stories about one’s identity, the individual may discover how much happiness may be embraced by re-claiming one’s true identity. We the Children invites the reader to begin the process of becoming empowered by first transforming any story in which he or she is a victim into one in which the reader might emerge feeling fully empowered. Personal empowerment opens the imagination by converting negative messages about oneself learned in childhood into affirmations as to what is good about us now – ask yourself – what degree of freedom could be obtained?

They Took the Kids Last Night Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

This account of six families whose children were wrongly seized by child protection services vividly illustrates the constitutional balancing act where medicine, family interests, and child safety can clash. They Took the Kids Last Night shows a rarely exposed side of America's contemporary struggle to address child abuse, telling the stories of loving families who were almost destroyed by false allegations—readily accepted by caseworkers, doctors, the media, and, too often, the courts. Each of the six wrongly accused families profiled in this book faced an epic and life-changing battle when child protection caseworkers came to their homes to take their kids. In each case, a child had an injury whose cause was unknown; it could have been due to an accident, a medical condition, or abuse. Each family ultimately exonerated itself and restored its family life, but still bears scars from the experience that will never disappear. The book tells why and how the child protection system failed these families. It also examines the larger flaws in our country's child protection safety net that is supposed to sort out the innocent from the guilty in order to protect children.

We the Scientists Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

A Pulitzer Prize–winning reporter’s moving narrative of a group of patient advocates who are revolutionizing the way medical research is conducted. For more than half a century, medical advances have been driven by investigators launching experiments inside labs. Science is often conducted in isolation and geared toward the long view. This is the story of a group of people who tried to force the lab doors open: parents whose children had been diagnosed with a rare and fatal genetic condition known as Niemann-Pick disease type C. The disease prevents cells from processing cholesterol, which leads to the progressive loss of the brain’s and the body’s ability to function. Recognizing that there would never be a treatment in time to save their children if things stayed the same, the parents set up a collaboration with researchers and doctors in search of a cure. Reconciling different views of science took work. The parents, doctors, and researchers didn't always agree—among themselves or with each other. But together they endeavored to accelerate the development of new drugs. The parents became citizen scientists, identifying promising new treatments and helping devise experiments. They recorded data about the children and co-authored scientific papers sharing findings. They engaged directly with the FDA at each step of the drug approval process. Along the way, they advanced the radical idea that science must belong to us all. Amy Dockser Marcus shows what happens when a community joins forces with doctors and researchers to try to save children’s lives. Their extraordinary social experiment reveals new pathways for treating disease and conducting research. Science may be forever changed.

We the Men of India Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

Men’s rights and men’s issues have often been ignored by the powers that be in Indian and around the world. On top of this, the number of gender biased laws such as 498a and Domestic Violence or DV have created a difficult legal situation for Indian men. Save Indian Family Foundation is a non-governmental organization working for the rights of men in India who are fighting various legal and matrimonial and child custody related cases. The chapters of this book are written by a number of members and volunteers of SIFF. They deal with a number of issues including biased laws, father’s rights, child separation, domestic violence, MGTOW, mental health, and men’s activism. Taken together, they constitute a unique picture of what it is like to be a man in India in this day and age.

We the Eaters Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

The implausible truth: Over one billion people in the world are hungry and over one billion are overweight. Far from complete opposites, hunger and obesity are in fact different manifestations of the same problem: It's increasingly difficult to find and eat nutritious food. By examining the global industrial food system using the deceptively simple template of a classic American dinner, We the Eaters not only outlines the root causes of this bizarre and troubling dichotomy but also provides a blueprint of actionable solutions—solutions that could start with changing out just a single item on your plate. From your burger to your soda, Gustafson unpacks how even the hyperlocal can cause worldwide ripples. For instance: American agricultural policy promoting corn and soybeans in beef farming means we feed more to cows than to hungry people. This is compounded by the environmental cost of factory livestock farming, rising obesity rates, and the false economics of unhealthfully high meat consumption. The answer? Eat a hamburger—just make it a smaller, sustainably raised, grass-fed one. Gustafson—a young entrepreneur, foreign policy expert, and food policy advocate—delivers a wake-up call that will inspire even the most passive reader to take action. We can love our food and our country while being better stewards of our system and our health. We the Eaters is nothing short of a manifesto: If we change dinner, we really can change the world.

We the Corrupt People Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

Since writing We the Corrupt People over two years ago, many things of a corrupt nature have occurred in this country. To write of these important events would necessitate another book. The author randomly took three days of his local newspaper encompassing one week, and marked out all items dealing with corruption in all its forms. Day one had thirty items, day two contained forty-five items, and day three reported another thirty items. All items ranged from the least corrupt actions such as ticketing of all types of driving infractions, hit and run accidents, drug offenses of all types, murders–especially between teenagers, or family members killing other family members to rapes, child molesting, spies in this country, telephone and internet wire- tapping, bribing of officials, corporate bonuses of corrupt bank officials, and the Bernard Madoff case. There were hundreds of people fired for elder abuse, political officials cheating on their spouses, parents giving kids alcohol, the list goes on and on, ad nauseam every day, week, month—forever— these noted are only a few of the many corrupt actions. The country that once was the envy of the world is now the most corrupt of countries anywhere.

Young Citizens of the World Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

Young Citizens of the World takes a clear stance: Social studies is about citizenship education that is informed, deliberative, and activist—citizenship not only as a noun, something one studies, but as a verb, something one DOES. Its holistic, multicultural approach is based on this clear curricular and pedagogical purpose. Straightforward, engaging, and highly interactive, the book encourages students (and their teachers) to become informed, think it through, and take action. Each chapter is written as a civic engagement which is teacher-ready for use in elementary classrooms. A set of six teaching strategies that are constructive, inquiry-driven, dramatic, and deliberative bring the curricular framework to life through intensive, integrated meaningful studies of special places, important people, and significant times. Readers are invited to rehearse the projects in their social studies education courses and then to reinterpret them for their classrooms. The projects are supported by important resources for teaching, including supportive children’s literature, links to internet sites, and visual sources and by a Companion Website that enhances and extends the text.

The Children of Raquette Lake Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

The Children of Raquette Lake: One Summer That Helped Change the Course of Treatment for Autism is an inspiring account of author Mira Rothenberg's experience with eleven autistic and schizophrenic children during the summer of 1958. In order to avoid the regression that often occurred during the summer months, Rothenberg, a trained psychologist, and her colleagues Zev Spanier and Tev Goldsman, decided to bring their young patients to a camp in Raquette Lake, located in the Adirondack region of Northern New York. As Rothenberg explains, this was a time when severely disturbed children were considered untreatable and often sent to live out their lives in institutions where their needs were neglected and ignored. Many of Rothenberg's patients exhibited signs of abuse and emotional trauma. On the island, Rothenberg, Spanier, and Goldsman discovered that by applying what was then an unconventional treatment of loving care and tolerance, their young patients improved and were able to heal many of the emotional and physical issues associated with their conditions. Written like a narrative journal that follows the children's progress from week to week, The Children of Raquette Lake is interwoven with personal histories and fascinating case stories that demonstrate the healing power of the human heart. The book also provides a valuable list of resources for therapists and parents of autistic children. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Are you concerned about the growing National Debt? Are you unemployed and can't find a job? Do you believe that our government is out of control? Do you feel helpless and don't know what to do to help? If you answered these questions with a YES then you need to look into the principles of this book and get started learning how one person can join up with many others to make changes that will fix these problems. Inside this book are many common sense suggestions about what needs to be looked into in America and what can be done to start making the changes necessary to create more jobs, getting control of the government and reducing the national debt. Learn what others are doing and find out why the Tea Party Movement is the way to get our country back. Gary Barbknecht grew up on a farm in rural Indiana attending school in a small town. His mother was a 4th grade school teacher in the same school in the same building. Parent Teacher Associations (PTA) was the norm in those days so Gary was familiar to both sides of the teaching profession and sat in on meetings pertaining to school materials and issues. After high school, Gary attended college at Purdue University received his bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering in 1965. Gary worked in the electronics industry for 42 years, part of the time as a contractor fabricating military electronics and part of the time as an adviser to the air force in the procurement of aircraft systems. Gary retired in 2007 just as the recession took hold and watched his retirement savings melt to nothing. After 3 years in retirement Gary realized that government needed some supervision and started to get more involved in government activities and started to study civic issues. When not tracking political tomfoolery, Gary enjoys freshwater fishing and grows his own fruits and vegetables as much as possible."
