9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

On its surface, the question posed by this work - Is Penn State a Real University? - seems ridiculous. Yet, its thoughtful exploration by Dr. Ben Novak, a four-term former trustee, reveals that there is far more to the answer than one might first imagine. Nearly 25 years ago, State College Magazine published the essays that form the core of this audiobook. Assembled for the first time and updated for contemporary listeners, Dr. Novak's explication - equal parts informational and inspirational - rings as true today as at the time of its original publication. Is Penn State a Real University? is an insightful meditation that presents a grounded, evergreen vision for students, alumni, townspeople, and professors everywhere. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ben Novak, Tom Shakely. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/107250/bk_acx0_107250_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Biomedical ethicist Arthur Caplan, Ph. D. on this edition of Fresh Air. Host Terry Gross and Caplan will discuss human embryos that are being grown by researchers doing stem cell research. Previously, the cells were harvested from aborted fetuses. The idea of fetal farming is quite controversial. Proponents cite the enormous potential for finding cures to cancer, Alzheimer's and diabetes. Opponents are aghast at the notion of using and destroying human life for the sole purpose of research. Caplan is the Director of the Center for Bioethics and Trustee Professor of Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania. He is also a Professor of Molecular and Cellular Engineering and Professor of Philosophy. Caplan has written seven books on bioethical topics, including Ethics and Organ Transplants and Am I My Brother's Keeper? The Ethical Frontiers of Biomedicine. He's consulted for numerous government offices and is a frequent commentator in the national media. (Broadcast Date: July 17, 2001) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Terry Gross.

Across God’s Frontiers: Catholic Sisters in the...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Roman Catholic sisters first traveled to the American West as providers of social services, education, and medical assistance. In Across God’s Frontiers, Anne M. Butler traces the ways in which sisters challenged and reconfigured contemporary ideas about women, work, religion, and the West; moreover, she demonstrates how religious life became a vehicle for increasing women’s agency and power. Moving to the West introduced significant changes for these women, including public employment and unconventional monastic lives. As nuns and sisters adjusted to new circumstances and immersed themselves in rugged environments, the West shaped them; and through their labors and charities, they in turn shaped the West. These female religious pioneers built institutions, brokered relationships between indigenous peoples and encroaching settlers, and undertook varied occupations, often without organized funding or direct support from the church hierarchy. A comprehensive history of Roman Catholic nuns and sisters in the American West, Across God’s Frontiers reveals these women as dynamic and creative architects of civic and religious institutions in western communities. About the author: Anne M. Butler is trustee professor emerita at Utah State University and past editor of the Western Historical Quarterly. Author of numerous articles and books, including Daughters of Joy, Sisters of Misery, she has published extensively on matters of race, class, and gender in the history of the American West. 1.

Co-Leaders: The Power of Great Partnerships , H...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Today’s celebrity CEO is either a figurehead or an egomaniac, too public a personality to get the real work done. That work is done instead by teams of leaders: exceptional deputies who forge great partnerships to maximize both organizational and personal success. Written for CEOs, managers, and anyone else interested in modern organizations, this is the first comprehensive study of co-leaders and their often quiet power. In a growing number of non-hierarchical organizations, talent, not title, is the source of power; boss and subordinate seem more like peers, with the spotlight on great partnerships. Co-leaders understand both the executive and subordinate experience, making them better adapted to the needs of the new millennium, where those who can command and follow will prove to be the greatest assets of any organization. David A. Heenan is a trustee of the Estate of James Campbell, one of the nation’s largest landowners, with assets valued at over two billion dollars. A former senior executive with Citicorp and Jardine Matheson, Heenan has served on the faculties of the Wharton School and the Columbia Graduate School of Business. He is the author of The New Corporate Frontier and The Re-United States of America. Warren Bennis is Distinguished Professor of Business Administration at the University of Southern California and a consultant to multinational companies and governments throughout the world. Author of over a dozen books, including the best-sellers Leaders and On Becoming a Leader, Bennis’s insights have fundamentally shaped the way we think about leaders today. 1. Language: English.

Bringing Up Race (eBook, ePUB)
11,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

You can't avoid it, because it's everywhere. In the looks my kids get in certain spaces, the manner in which some people speak to them, the stuff that goes over their heads. Stuff that makes them cry even when they don't know why. How do you bring up your kids to be kind and happy when there is so much out there trying to break them down?Bringing Up Race is an important book, for all families whatever their race or ethnicity. Racism cuts across all sectors of society - even the Queen will have to grapple with these issues, as great grandmother to a child of mixed ethnicity. It's for everyone who wants to instil a sense of open-minded inclusivity in their kids, and those who want to discuss difference instead of shying away from tough questions. Uju draws on often shocking personal stories of prejudice along with opinions of experts, influencers and fellow parents to give prescriptive advice making this an invaluable guide. Bringing Up Race explores:- When children start noticing ethnic differences (hint: much earlier than you think)- What to do if your child says something racist (try not to freak out) - How to have open, honest, age-appropriate conversations about race- How children and parents can handle racial bullying - How to recognise and challenge everyday racism, aka microaggressionsA call to arms for ALL parents, Bringing Up Race starts the conversation which will mean the next generation have zero tolerance to racial prejudice, and grow up understanding what kindness and happiness truly mean.'Uju Asika has written a necessary book for our times. She throws up huge questions (and responds to them intelligently and with heart). This isn't just a book for talking to children - whatever race or colour they are - about racism and all the other intersecting isms that divide us, it is a book for everyone dedicated to creating a better, kinder world. This crucial book should be required reading!' - Chika Unigwe, author of On Black Sisters' Street, winner of the Nigeria Prize for Literature in 2012, the Bonderman professor for Creative Writing at Brown University and judge of the Man Booker International Prize in 2017.'This book could not be more timely. With so many scrabbling around for resources to help navigate our racialized times, Asika draws upon her own experience as a Black Nigerian mother of two boys to offer parents, teachers, carers, educators these stories for survival. As Asika notes, race can no longer be ignored - her own journey is instructive for all - from running the popular 'Babes About Town' (blogging on the immersive cultural education available for her kids in London and beyond) to now deliberately and necessarily making the explicit connections to raising happy Black boys in a prejudiced world. Written with engaging wit, candour, and verve, and containing heart-breaking and heart-warming anecdotes, Bringing Up Race is a needed call to action for all concerned with a future free from racial prejudice.'- Sai Murray, writer/poet/graphic artist, creative director at Liquorice Fish and trustee of The Racial Justice Network
