1,800 Miles: Striving to End Sexual Violence, One Step at a Time

by Joshua Daniel Phillips

“We must be actively against instead of passively for sexual violence.” - 1,800 Miles Sexual violence is a cultural issue that will not go away just because we ignore it. Three college friends understood this and decided to do something. With few resources and little funding, they headed to Miami in the summer of 2008 and were ready to walk all the way to Boston in an effort to raise awareness about sexual violence. Carry their only possessions on their backs and never knowing where they would be sleeping at the end of each day, they slowly made their way up the East Coast. However, they did have their set backs as certain days included being chased by dogs and walking numerous miles through the rain. Despite these adversities, the three walkers continued forward for three long, hot summer months. Along the way, they talked to the media, met survivors, and even spent the night with a Senator. 1,800 Miles recounts those stories both humorous and heartbreaking from the walk and is sure to be a story that inspires other social activists to start moving forward – one step at a time.

The problem is not the women themselves but the bad choices they keep making. In her frank and refreshing new book, Dr. Cornish speaks to unique aspects of the African American female psyche by targeting ten of the most common and foolish choices black women make in their lives regarding men, and how they can correct these problems, including:Sisters Dissin' SistersNo Money, No HoneyExchanging "Sexual Dealings" for Loving FeelingsLoving the "Married Bachelor" Emotional Dependency Plus Unplanned Pregnancy. . . and much more.Relying on case studies, interviews, and letters she has received, Dr. Cornish gets to the heart of the matter by illuminating why black women, no matter how smart, savvy, and successful, continue to lose at the dating game, and how they can face, erase, and replace the problems that have kept them from finding true love.Why are so many black women alone or in bad relationships?Why do sisters unconsciously use weight, fear, finance, status, skin color, and other barriers to keep themselves from getting the love they want?Why do black women think that there are no eligible black men left--that the good ones are married, dead, or not yet born, and the rest are gay, bisexual, or interested only in white women?From the Hardcover edition.

10 Conversations You Need to Have with Your Children

by Shmuley Boteach

Why do I have to repeat everything? Why does every conversation end in an argument? Communicating with our children. Conversing. Connecting. When did it become so difficult? And how do we begin to change it for the better? This book was designed to help parents answer these important questions, and it is based on two fundamental ideas: The first is that there are no bad children, and no deliberately bad parents -- but that sometimes, despite the best of intentions on both sides, there can be bad relationships between parents and children. The second is that, as parents, we must do everything we can to save those relationships, to reach out and really communicate with our children, because it is only through talking to them that we can create an environment for inspiration and change. In this compelling book, Shmuley Boteach, passionate social commentator and outspoken relationship guru, walks you through the critical conversations, including: cherishing childhood; developing intellectual curiosity; knowing who you are and what you want to become; learning to forgive; realizing the importance of family and tradition; being fearless and courageous. As a father of eight, Rabbi Shmuley speaks from a wealth of experience. He has written a book for parents of children of all ages, from toddlers, who are just beginning to become aware of the world around them, to adolescents, who must learn to navigate all sorts of tricky social and academic pressures. 10 Conversations will help you stay connected to your children so that they develop the kind of strong moral character that leads to rich, meaningful lives.

10 Lies Men Believe About Porn: The Lies That Keep Men in Bondage, and the Truth That Sets Them Free

by Stephen Kuhn

Statistics show roughly 50 percent of men struggle with a pornography addiction; boys are being exposed to porn at younger ages each year; and technology now provides an environment of access where you no longer need to search for porn-it comes looking for you. Despite these facts, this epidemic is largely being ignored. When it is addressed, the message is always "Try harder, get an Internet filter, be a better man." At best, this message merely addresses the symptoms of a much deeper issue. At worst, it feeds the lies men believe that have contributed directly to their addiction. 10 Lies Men Believe about Porn uncovers the true cause of pornography addiction, exposes the lies that are trapping men in their bondage, and shows them the biblical path to true and lasting freedom.

10 PRINT CHR$ (Software Studies)

by Nick Montfort John Bell Ian Bogost Patsy Baudoin Jeremy Douglass

A single line of code offers a way to understand the cultural context of computing.This book takes a single line of code—the extremely concise BASIC program for the Commodore 64 inscribed in the title—and uses it as a lens through which to consider the phenomenon of creative computing and the way computer programs exist in culture. The authors of this collaboratively written book treat code not as merely functional but as a text—in the case of 10 PRINT, a text that appeared in many different printed sources—that yields a story about its making, its purpose, its assumptions, and more. They consider randomness and regularity in computing and art, the maze in culture, the popular BASIC programming language, and the highly influential Commodore 64 computer.

100 Amazing Facts About the Negro

by Henry Louis Gates

The first edition of Joel Augustus Rogers’s now legendary 100 Amazing Facts About the Negro with Complete Proof, published in 1957, was billed as “A Negro ‘Believe It or Not.’” Rogers’s little book was priceless because he was delivering enlightenment and pride, steeped in historical research, to a people too long starved on the lie that they were worth nothing. For African Americans of the Jim Crow era, Rogers’s was their first black history teacher. But Rogers was not always shy about embellishing the “facts” and minimizing ambiguity; neither was he above shock journalism now and then. With élan and erudition—and with winning enthusiasm—Henry Louis Gates, Jr. gives us a corrective yet loving homage to Roger’s work. Relying on the latest scholarship, Gates leads us on a romp through African, diasporic, and African-American history in question-and-answer format. Among the one hundred questions: Who were Africa’s first ambassadors to Europe? Who was the first black president in North America? Did Lincoln really free the slaves? Who was history’s wealthiest person? What percentage of white Americans have recent African ancestry? Why did free black people living in the South before the end of the Civil War stay there? Who was the first black head of state in modern Western history? Where was the first Underground Railroad? Who was the first black American woman to be a self-made millionaire? Which black man made many of our favorite household products better? Here is a surprising, inspiring, sometimes boldly mischievous—all the while highly instructive and entertaining—compendium of historical curiosities intended to illuminate the sheer complexity and diversity of being “Negro” in the world.(With full-color illustrations throughout.)
