Morah

release date: Jul 01, 2006
Morah
This book is the sum of forty-odd years of mystical research, spiritual practice, life-long reading, and hard knocks. The author has transformed his experience into simple lessons for anyone seeking the unvarnished truth on a wide range of vital topics. The author has written of his favorite interests from an original perspective. The intent is to provide clarity. He writes about Buddhism, Christianity, personal security, wellness, history, Utopia, ecstasy, Cosmology, the art of dying, and the contentment to be found in silence. He, also, has included a puzzling, murder mystery. If you are seeking depth and want to be convinced in order to agree then you will be delighted with the range of thought, and its reach into new areas. It is at times devout and at other times a celebration of all domestic relaxations. You are certain to find fresh wisdom, and will possibly be reintroduced to some of the old. It is like the companionship of a ripened wit, or, of finding a polished stone of opinion. It will challenge your thinking; but it will reward you with gladness that you chose to read The Abbot''s Guide And Other Wrtings by Mr. Anand.

Using Data to Close the Achievement Gap

release date: Jun 25, 2002
Using Data to Close the Achievement Gap
Provides both the philosophical and practical blueprint for transforming public schools into the learning communities we want and need. Ruth Johnson presents a thoughtful, well-documented treatise on how educators, policymakers, and parents can use data to set achievement goals and to measure progress towards these goals. Unfortunately, statistics show that real disparities do exist in academic achievement, which consistently coincide with income level and race. Book highlights compelling evidence that these inequities can be linked to school practices that inadvertently increase inequities. The solution to this pervasive problem lies in the collection and examination of appropriate data, and this book shows readers how.

Green Revolution

release date: Jan 01, 2002
Green Revolution
"In the mid-1960s, rural India passed through a period of rapid technological and social change known as the Green Revolution. It was the transition from basically subsistence peasant farming at a low technological level to expensive commercial farming with modern technology. Five major sociotechnological innovations were basic to the Green Revolution: the development of high-yielding varieties of food grains, especially wheat and rice; land consolidation; private tubewell irrigation; mechanization; and the use of factory fertilizers and pesticides. New sources of energy, electricity and the internal combustion engine, which replaced bullock power, and the financial infrastructure that enabled farmers to buy the new equipment--tractors, tubewells, and threshers--represented a fundamental change. If the Green Revolution is taken in its broadest sense to include much higher educational levels and new employment opportunities in modern occupations, then the economy of Shanti Nagar, whose principal component is still agriculture, has been transformed. This work is the 11th in a series of monographs, all published in the Anthropological Papers of the American Museum of Natural History, devoted to the description and analysis of life in Shanti Nagar (a pseudonym), a village in the Union Territory of Delhi. Our research is based on holistic fieldwork carried out in the village in 1957-1959 and 1977-1978, dates which make it possible to compare the village just before and after the Green Revolution. The most visible results of the Green Revolution were substantially increased production of the new high-yielding varieties of grain and increased prosperity for farmers, and indeed for almost all villagers. Because of the Green Revolution and associated developments in education and employment, the villagers of Shanti Nagar now lead a modern style of rural life supplemented by urban employment. These changes have also had the effect of enhancing equality, one of India''s greatly desired social goals"--T.p. verso.

Churches take people''s money under false pretenses and spend the money unwisely with little or no accountability. Many churches are breeding grounds for self-centered, egotistical people to further their ambitions and impose their will over others. Most churches preach and teach ''false doctrine'' and put out misinformation concerning the Bible.

High Seas to High Stakes

High Seas to High Stakes
Hail and sleet were so hard it pinned us down to the rigging. The bark plunged madly into a tremulous sea throwing sailors on the deck into water up to their necks. Fury of the wind defied efforts to haul down the sail. Jared Coffin Nash and fifty five other men sailing on a 104 foot bark shared the hold full of lumber, machinery, tools, pigs, chickens and turkeys enough to last the six month journey from Maine to California around treacherous Cape Horn. The call of the gold rush in 1848 sent thousands of Argonauts on an inordinate chase, exciting though disappointing for most. For these journeymen, it was a life-threatening adventure that built or broke these men seeking their fortunes. Jared Nash kept a diary while on this great adventure and sent letters home to his wife Leah. These papers were found a hundred years later and are the basis for this book. The author''s late husband was Jared''s great grandson.

Ghosts

Ghosts
This monograph is the ninth of a series devoted to the description and analysis of life in Shanti Nagar, a village in the Union Territory of Delhi. Our research is based on holistic fieldwork carried out in 1957-59 and 1977-1978. Previous monographs, all published in the Anthropological Papers of the American Museum of Natural History, have dealt with social organization, economics, rites of passage, fertility and sterilization, elections, sickness and health, enculturation and education, and ghosts in the context of a woman''s psychomedical case history. The present monograph places ghost illness, ghost possession, and poltergeist attacks in an historical, psychological, ecological, medical, ideological, and holistic ethnographic context. A descriptive and comparative case-study method is central to the analysis. Among the ghost-related topics that are covered are beliefs; causes; gender, age and caste distribution; sectarian differences (the Arya Samaj vs. Sanatan Dharma); and the recruitment, training, and methods of exorcists and curers.

One Earth, One Future

One Earth, One Future
Written for nonscientists, One Earth, One Future can help individuals understand the basic science behind changes in the global environment and the resulting policy implications that the population of the entire planet must face. The volume describes the earth as a unified system--exploring the interactions between the atmosphere, land, and water and the snowballing impact that human activity is having on the system--and presents perspectives on policies and programs that can both develop and protect our natural resources. One Earth, One Future discusses why such seemingly diverse issues as historical climate change, species diversity, and sea-level rise are part of a single picture--and how human activity is the critical element in that picture. The book concludes with practical examinations of economic, security, and development questions, with a view toward achieving improvements in quality of life without further environmental degradation. One Earth, One Future is must reading for anyone interested in the interrelationship of environmental matters and public policy issues.

Enculturation and Education in Shanti Nagar

Enculturation and Education in Shanti Nagar
We report observations and inquiries regarding enculturation and education in the context of change primarily due to urbanization in the village we call Shanti Nagar during the years 1958 and 1959. Although the processes of enculturation and education are related, they are contrasted as two types of learning, enculturation being the traditional learning found among family, kin, and community; and education, a newer type, having to do with the attainment of literacy in formal schooling. Although the study is largely descriptive, comparisons are drawn between the two major types of learning and their function in preparing the individual and community for the modern world. In addition, in this study we describe the problems of changing from one system of learning to another, and indicate the different rates of change occurring historically and during the period of our fieldwork for caste communities, and for the sexes.
