New York Times bestselling author Chuck Klosterman asks questions that are profound in their simplicity: How certain are we about our understanding of gravity? How certain are we about our understanding of time? What will be the defining memory of rock music, five hundred years from today? How seriously should we view the content of our dreams? How seriously should we view the content of television? Are all sports destined for extinction? Is it possible that the greatest artist of our era is currently unknown (or—weirder still—widely known, but entirely disrespected)? Is it possible that we “overrate” democracy? And perhaps most disturbing, is it possible that we’ve reached the end of knowledge? Klosterman visualizes the contemporary world as it will appear to those who'll perceive it as the distant past. Kinetically slingshotting through a broad spectrum of objective and subjective problems, But What If We’re Wrong? is built on interviews with a variety of creative thinkers—George Saunders, David Byrne, Jonathan Lethem, Kathryn Schulz, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Brian Greene, Junot Díaz, Amanda Petrusich, Ryan Adams, Nick Bostrom, Dan Carlin, and Richard Linklater, among others—interwoven with the type of high-wire humor and nontraditional analysis only Klosterman would dare to attempt. It’s a seemingly impossible achievement: a book about the things we cannot know, explained as if we did. It’s about how we live now, once “now” has become “then.”

www.myspace.com/azif1 "Az If" presents a collection of "a real soul-stirring, eye-opening version of one woman's life in the middle lane" while incorporating an understanding of certain Christian principles along the way. "Az If" explores the relative complexities of human nature and interaction as they might occur in a sometimes uncertain modern society. Most of "Az If" deals with family bonds, starting with "Collection by Ma", "Real Mothers" and "My Sisters Are My Friends". This book focuses on notions of history and culture, "African Queens" portrays a slightly different kind of relationship that might influence a person's sense of self. Several pieces envision a virtual link between the earthly and the divine, through the individual. For example, "Echoes of Women's Work" and "I Love Him Still" post faith as a means whereby a person might achieve a degree of peace or comprehension. Based in part on the idea that "Childhood lessons last throughout adulthood", "Az If" seeks to characterize the "Reality Of A 13-Year Old Manchild in Da' Hood". The end of the text offers a fairly candid look into "That Mirror". The concluding pages of "Az If" furnish some "Final Thoughts" addressing facets of mortality and spirituality. From the peaks and valleys, defining romance, to the strength that may come through prayer, the collection covers a range of themes and scenarios. Altogether this book offers a design to mark phases of thinking as well as enlightening and provoking thought for the reader. "Az If" is fresh and original. Readers from all walks of life will appreciate the truth and experiences in this novel. This book relays to the reader to take note of their acquired knowledge, both as an outlet and even as a blueprint for your life, and ultimately to better understand your God given path. Peace & prosperity, Sandrael www.myspace.com/azif1

If you feel a bit cross at the presumption of some oik daring to suggest everything you know about education might be wrong, please take it with a pinch of salt. What if everything you knew about education was wrong? is just a title. Of course, you probably think a great many things that aren't wrong. The aim of the book is to help you 'murder your darlings'. David Didau will question your most deeply held assumptions about teaching and learning, expose them to the fiery eye of reason and see if they can still walk in a straight line after the experience. It seems reasonable to suggest that only if a theory or approach can withstand the fiercest scrutiny should it be encouraged in classrooms. David makes no apologies for this; why wouldn't you be sceptical of what you're told and what you think you know? As educated professionals, we ought to strive to assemble a more accurate, informed or at least considered understanding of the world around us. Here, David shares with you some tools to help you question your assumptions and assist you in picking through what you believe. He will stew findings from the shiny white laboratories of cognitive psychology, stir in a generous dash of classroom research and serve up a side order of experience and observation. Whether you spit it out or lap it up matters not. If you come out the other end having vigorously and violently disagreed with him, you'll at least have had to think hard about what you believe. The book draws on research from the field of cognitive science to expertly analyse some of the unexamined meta-beliefs in education. In Part 1; 'Why we're wrong', David dismantles what we think we know; examining cognitive traps and biases, assumptions, gut feelings and the problem of evidence. Part 2 delves deeper - 'Through the threshold' - looking at progress, liminality and threshold concepts, the science of learning, and the difference between novices and experts. In Part 3, David asks us the question 'What could we do differently?' and offers some considered insights into spacing and interleaving, the testing effect, the generation effect, reducing feedback and why difficult is desirable. While Part 4 challenges us to consider 'What else might we be getting wrong?'; cogitating formative assessment, lesson observation, grit and growth, differentiation, praise, motivation and creativity.

Between 1907 and 1911, Ferdinand de Saussure gave three series of lectures on the topic of general linguistics. After his death, these lecture notes were gathered together by his students and published as the Course in General Linguistics. And in the past one hundred years, there has been no more influential and divisive reading of Saussure than that of Jacques Derrida.This book is an examination of Derrida's philosophical reconstruction of Saussurean linguistics, of the paradigm shift from structuralism to post-structuralism, and of the consequences that continue to resonate in every field of the humanities today.Despite the importance of Derrida's critique of Saussure for cultural studies, philosophy, linguistics and literary theory, no comprehensive analysis has before been written. The magnitude of the task undertaken here makes this book an invaluable resource for those wishing to interrogate the encounter beyond appearances or received wisdom.In this process of a close reading, the following t

Equal Shares tells a fascinating story--the history of a group of dynamic tapestry workers who changed the economic life of their community. The authors examine a key community-based cooperative in Botswana that was launched in the early 1970s, and is hailed as a model for development and social change. With little formal education, virtually no job experience, still working their own agricultural lands, and many as single mothers, the co-op workers have maintained their business for over twenty-five years. Equal Shares is written in different voices, and tells the story of the defining moments in the lives of the Oodi Weavers. As the workers weave their village stories into the tapestries, the book weaves a story that depicts their evolving collective experience. It's a model of community action. Inspiring reading for all those fighting to take control of their economic lives.

If Something is Wrong is the first in-depth report on the violations committed against farm workers during Zimbabwe's 'land-reform' programme. The report examines the preliminary results of a study conducted by field officers of the General Agriculture and Plantation Workers, Union of Zimbabwe (GAPWUZ). This publication presents statistical evidence alongside first-person testimony to provide a chilling account of the physical and psychological violence perpetrated against Zimbabwe's farm workers. It is not widely known that this huge population of some 1.8 million people has been the greatest victim of Zimbabwe's 'land-reform' programme. It is hoped that this report, and others that will follow it, will help to give voice to this large and vulnerable constituency, and to ensure that the experiences of Zimbabwe's farm-workers will not be forgotten.

WHAT COULD GO WRONG . . . ? Progress! It’s wonderful—though it sometimes has unexpected and undesirable side effects. Read the long warning list of possible side effects on a medicine bottle’s label sometime . . . the part in really tinyprint. But surely the benefits of modern technology outweigh the drawbacks. Until they don’t. Remember how increasingly deadly weapons, from the machine gun to the H-bomb, were supposed to make war too horrific to even be contemplated? Didn’t happen. The cell phone has made it possible to phone from almost anywhere—too bad if you wanted to be out of reach. And civilization is so big and complicated, that a breakdown of any part can have disastrous consequences. Modern transportation makes it possible to get anywhere in a hurry, though traffic jams and overextended airports may slow the hurry part to a crawl. And it also can ensure that a new disease can go all over the planet in a few days. Then, there’s the sheer complexity of society itself, from interminable waits at the DMV to trying to get tech help on the phone (“Your call is important to us . . .”). And that’s just the present day. What new technologies, new ways of organizing (or disorganizing) society, new confused and confusing government bureaucracies, new ways for small disgruntled groups to wreak havoc, and worse, will the future bring? Will privacy keep eroding? Could computers and robots take over? Maybe they wouldn’t want to. And if the pace of modern life is driving you batty, just wait to see what’s on the horizon. Exploring such scary, yet fascinating, possibilities are such masters of science fiction as Robert A. Heinlein, Sarah A. Hoyt, Fritz Leiber, Gordon R. Dickson, Lester del Rey, Christopher Anvil, Fredric Brown, and more, writers who have seen the future—and it may not work . . . At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management). Praise for previous anthologies edited by Hank Davis In Space No One Can Hear You Scream “. . . the 13 tales in this collection blend sf with horror to demonstrate the resiliency of both genres . . . offers strong tales by the genre’s best storytellers.” —Library Journal “. . . first-rate science fiction, demonstrating how short stories can still entertain.” —Galveston County Daily News A Cosmic Christmas 2 You “This creative and sprightly Christmas science fiction anthology spins in some surprising directions . . . A satisfying read for cold winter evenings . . . a great stocking stuffer for SF fans.” —Publishers Weekly As Time Goes By “As Time Goes By . . . does an excellent job of exploring not only romance through time travel—relationships enabled or imperiled by voyaging through time—but the intrinsic romance of time travel itself . . . The range of styles and approaches is as wide as the authors' sensibilities and periods might suggest . . . full of entertaining and poignant stories . . .” —Alvaro Zinos-Amaro, IntergalacticMedicineShow.com

The inevitable death of home fitness equipment. The humor of debt-counseling commercials. Militants who use plastic dividers at supermarket checkouts. Jared and his goofy Subway sandwich diet. The State of the Union Address. Movie studio research screenings. These are just a handful of the many subjects Dennis Camlek tackles in this collection of amusing observations. Drawing upon humorous life and entertainment career experiences, he not only takes aim at pop culture, but celebrates it, and promises to make you laugh at the proceedings, often at his own expense. Call it a commentary on subjects with little to no social relevance; a real "less is more" philosophy.

Have you been feeling like life has become less reliable and stable? Are you looking for more hope, health and calm in your life? You’re not alone. There are external factors causing these feelings. You will be completely unable to remain the same as this book weaves you through the world as we have known it, into a world where anything is possible! No stone is left unturned through this thoroughly researched exploration of mostly unexamined factors inherent to Western society that set us up to feel more uncomfortable at this time in the West, particularly in the U.S., as we undergo a macroshift globally. Written at the tail end of her ten years living and working in Asia to understand why it seems now that we’re less equipped to create vibrantly healthy, happy lives in the West, Alison J. Kay, Phd, documents an eye-opening, sometimes humorous, sometimes raw contrast of modern, globalized, Western culture with Asian. Feel the freedom as she gently guides you to more ease!

“Fans of Donald E. Westlake’s Parker novels (written under his Richard Stark pseudonym) will be on familiar ground. . . . A very good entry in a very good series” (Booklist). Wilson should have just walked away when three men came looking for a way to boost a valuable piece of art. The art came off the wall, the alarm screamed thief, and Wilson walked away clean. But it turned out that job was an interview for an even bigger heist. A dangerous man wants Wilson to get him something more valuable than a painting. Problem is Wilson only has a week. Wilson and his crew cross the Canadian border to Buffalo, New York, to steal a two-hundred-year-old violin. A lot of people are interested in getting their hands on the instrument—and none of them are shy about killing to get it. The job starts like a bad joke—a thief, a con man, a wheel man, and a gangster get in line to cross the border—but the Buffalo job doesn’t end with a punchline. It ends with blood . . .

Timing is everything. Nothing could be truer as it relates to John Calvin and his teaching. If Calvin had lived a century earlier, his teaching would have been swallowed up in the Catholic tradition, and he would likely be a footnote in Christian history rather than a pillar. If he had come a century later, his teaching would have faced the daunting task of shaping a movement that was already in motion. When Calvin developed his doctrine, it was the perfect time. The Western World was ready for a new theological system as it had not been since the time of Constantine. This time, however, the system was able to ride the wings of revolution that bore the historically powerful impetus of freedom from religious tyranny. But, what if Calvin was wrong? In this book, readers will learn the basics of the Calvinistic teaching of Eternal Security and the disparity between this teaching and the clear teaching of the Bible. For example: Ezekiel 18:24 says, "But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die." Eternal Security and Ezekiel clash at this point. What should the responsible Christian do? What about all of the Christians who have fallen into sin and even died in a backslidden state? What about all the parables that conflict with the teaching of Eternal Security? The Bible lists several sins that are capable of destroying a believer's hope in Heaven. Among those are unforgiveness and hatred. Is the answer that Eternal Security provides strong enough to overrule these Scriptural teachings? In addition, "What if Calvin Was Wrong?" exposes several myths that are often propagated by modern Calvinists. Many of these myths are faulty interpretations of Scripture. See how these myths stack up when evaluated in the light of the truth. The most dramatic of these myths is the teaching of modern Calvinists that suicide victims can go to Heaven. Is this true? Is it what the Bible says? What if Calvin was wrong?
