Is today's fast-paced media culture creating a toxic environment for our children's brains? In this landmark, bestselling assessment tracing the roots of America's escalating crisis in education, Jane M. Healy, Ph.D., examines how television, video games, and other components of popular culture compromise our children's ability to concentrate and to absorb and analyze information. Drawing on neuropsychological research and an analysis of current educational practices, Healy presents in clear, understandable language: -- How growing brains are physically shaped by experience -- Why television programs -- even supposedly educational shows like Sesame Street -- develop "habits of mind" that place children at a disadvantage in school -- Why increasing numbers of children are diagnosed with attention deficit disorder -- How parents and teachers can make a critical difference by making children good learners from the day they are born

Planet Earth was a Garden of Eden just a few thousand years ago. Today it is plagued with pollution and starvation happening everywhere. There is more disease yet a failing medical system. The U.S. is divided politically and crumbling from a government more focused on personal enrichment than the needs of the people. What is worth saving? Can the planet and humanity go through a re-boot? Will Earth ever be as advanced as the other inhabited planets? What if there were no hungry people on the planet? What if there was world peace? Reading SAVED is a riveting fiction tale and an adventure of possibilities. Could you handle living on the New Earth? "Researchers have proven, scientifically, that humans are all one people. We are one species each of us much, much more alike than different. We are all of the same stardust. We are all going to live and die on the same planet, a Pale Blue Dot in the vastness of space. We have to work together." Bill Nye

The Future of Leadership considers how the rapid changes of today will affect the leaders of tomorrow. Renowned Leadership scholar Michael A. Genovese argues that one of the key challenges for future leaders will be to effectively and constructively manage the ‘hyper-change’ taking place both within organizations and in the broader social and political spheres. Taking a Futures Studies approach to envision the state of leadership in the coming decades, Genovese also provides case studies of leaders who have already demonstrated the mind- and skill-sets necessary to successfully manage rapid change.
