Silver Lake Bohemia: A History

by Vincent Brook Michael Locke

Since the early 1900s, Silver Lake has been a magnet for iconoclastic writers, architects and political activists. Famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, who designed the Hollyhock House for socialist and oil heiress Aline Barnsdall, drew a wave of visionary modernists to the area. Local civil rights advocate Loren Miller spearheaded the fight against housing discrimination. Silver Lake's Black Cat bar and Harry Hay's Mattachine Society were central to the early gay rights movement. Literary artists Anäis Nin and James Leo Herlihy made the neighborhood their home, as did other notables like first lady of baseball Effa Manley and "Hobo Millionaire" James Eads How. Michael Locke and Vincent Brook chronicle these and other people and places that helped make Silver Lake the bohemian epicenter of Los Angeles.


by Richard Hibbard Graham Thomas

When Lions and Wales rugby star Richard Hibbard crashed into George Smith under a clear night sky in Australia, it felt as though the tremors might have rocked Sydney Harbour Bridge. Smith was the 'Mr Indestructible' of Australian rugby, yet he was helped off the pitch. Hooker Hibbard simply shook his trademark blond locks and carried on helping the Lions earn their 2013 series victory. Soon, pictures of "Hibbz" celebrating in the dressing room with James Bond actor Daniel Craig were being beamed around the world. In Lionheart the Ospreys star reflects on his long and often rocky road to the top of world rugby: from his roots in Port Talbot, to his stint with rugby league club Aberavon Fighting Irish, to fighting back from countless serious injuries.

Finding Myself Lost

by Richard Jamie Oliver

In the summer of 2000 Richard Oliver, better known as Jamie, was making a name for himself as an artist and running his own print business. Then one day he announced, 'Hey, Dad, I've decided to join a band.' Following every young man's dream, he bought himself a set of turntables and a week later played his first show with Lostprophets. His friend, the band's lead singer Ian Watkins, asked him to join them in the studio - and soon he was on tour. Told they would never sell more than 4,000 records, the Pontypridd band released their first album to great success. More than a decade and millions of record sales later, Lostprophets continue to be one of the UK's most successful rock bands. With five best-selling albums and numerous awards to their name, they sell-out tours all over the world. In Finding Myself Lost Richard reveals what really goes on behind the scenes on the road, how he has learnt to deal with fame and success and reflects on his own personal growth along the way.

Treason in the Rockies: Nazi Sympathizer Dale Maple’s POW Escape Plot

by Flint Whitlock Paul N. Herbert

Harvard honor alumnus Dale Maple had a promising future, but his obsession with Nazi Germany led to his downfall. Classmates often accused him of pro-Nazi sentiments, and one campus organization even expelled him. After graduation, he enlisted in the U.S. Army, only to be relegated to a unit of soldiers suspected of harboring German sympathies. He helped two German POWs escape imprisonment at Camp Hale and flee to Mexico. The fugitives ran out of gas seventeen miles from the border and managed to cross it on foot, only to be arrested and returned to American authorities. Convicted and sentenced to death for treason, Maple awaited his fate until President Franklin Roosevelt commuted his sentence to life imprisonment. Ultimately, he was released in 1950. Paul N. Herbert narrates the engrossing details of this riveting story.

Teaching and Learning STEM

by Rebecca Brent Richard M. Felder

Rethink traditional teaching methods to improve student learning and retention in STEM Educational research has repeatedly shown that compared to traditional teacher-centered instruction, certain learner-centered methods lead to improved learning outcomes, greater development of critical high-level skills, and increased retention in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Teaching and Learning STEM presents a trove of practical research-based strategies for designing and teaching courses and assessing students' learning. The book draws on the authors' extensive backgrounds and decades of experience in STEM education and faculty development. Its engaging and well-illustrated descriptions will equip you to implement the strategies in your courses and to deal effectively with problems (including student resistance) that might occur in the implementation. The book will help you: Plan and conduct class sessions in which students are actively engaged, no matter how large the class is Make good use of technology in face-to-face, online, and hybrid courses and flipped classrooms Assess how well students are acquiring the knowledge, skills, and conceptual understanding the course is designed to teach Help students develop expert problem-solving skills and skills in communication, creative thinking, critical thinking, high-performance teamwork, and self-directed learning Meet the learning needs of STEM students with a broad diversity of attributes and backgrounds The strategies presented in Teaching and Learning STEM don't require revolutionary time-intensive changes in your teaching, but rather a gradual integration of traditional and new methods. The result will be continual improvement in your teaching and your students' learning.

The Ragamuffin Gospel: Good News for the Bedraggled, Beat-Up, and Burnt Out

by Brennan Manning

A Furious Love Is Hot on Your Trail! Many believers feel stunted in their Christian growth. We beat ourselves up over our failures and, in the process, pull away from God because we subconsciously believe He tallies our defects and hangs His head in disappointment. In this newly repackaged edition--now with full appendix, and the author's own epilogue, "The Scandal of Grace: Fifteen Years Later," Brennan Manning reminds us that nothing could be further from the truth. The Father beckons us to Himself with a "furious love" that burns brightly and constantly. Only when we truly embrace God's grace can we bask in the joy of a gospel that enfolds the most needy of His flock--the "ragamuffins." Are you bedraggled, beat-up, burnt-out? Most of us believe in God's grace--in theory. But somehow we can't seem to apply it in our daily lives. We continue to see Him as a small-minded bookkeeper, tallying our failures and successes on a score sheet. Yet God gives us His grace, willingly, no matter what we've done. We come to Him as ragamuffins--dirty, bedraggled, and beat-up. And when we sit at His feet, He smiles upon us, the chosen objects of His "furious love." Brennan Manning's now-classic meditation on grace and what it takes to access it--simple honesty--has changed thousands of lives. Now with a Ragamuffin's thirty-day spiritual journey guide, it will change yours, too. Includes a 19-Day Spiritual Journey Guide!"Brennan Manning does a masterful job of blowing the dust off of shop-worn theology and allowing God's grace to do what only God's grace can do--amaze." -Max Lucado, Bestselling author of The Gift for All People "I found deep comfort in realizing that Jesus loves even me, a ragamuffin, just as I am." -Michael Card, Musician, recording artist, and author of A Violent Grace "This is a zestful and accurate portrayal that tells us unmistakably that the gospel is good, dazzlingly good." -Eugene Peterson, Author of The Message Story Behind the BookThe world assigns value to people using measurable standards. Someone is a successful student if she receives As. Someone is a strong athlete if he runs five miles a day. The Lord, however, knows nothing of standards. The Ragamuffin Gospel was inspired by Brennan Manning after he discovered firsthand what it means to live by grace instead of performance. His words bring new life and sweet refreshment to Christians who are tired of never measuring up.

Jonah: A Tale of Mercy

by Jimmy A. Long

The story of Jonah is ancient and often told, but even so, most remember it only as the tale of a prophet eaten by a fish. In Jonah: A Story of Mercy, author Jimmy A. Long presents the biblical story of Jonah with historical details of the time while weaving fictional characters and events that present the prophet as a real man fighting the call of God on his life. Beginning prior to his call to Nineveh, we follow Jonah as he runs from God, reluctantly obeys God, and is amazed and even angered at the mercy of God. In the process, we learn as much about ourselves as we do the prophet.
