    John Taylor Gatto: Weapons of Mass Instruction: A Schoolteacher's Journey Through the Dark World of Compulsory Schooling

    Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


    Description

    Editorial Reviews About the Author John Gatto was a teacher in New York City's public schools for over 30 years and is a recipient of the New York State Teacher of the Year award. A much-sought after speaker on education throughout the United States, his other books include A Different Kind of Teacher (Berkeley Hills Books, 2001) and The Underground History of American Education (Oxford Village Press, 2000).

    John Taylor Gatto’s Weapons of Mass Instruction , now available in paperback, focuses on mechanisms of traditional education that cripple imagination, discourage critical thinking, and create a false view of learning as a byproduct of rote-memorization drills. Gatto’s earlier book, Dumbing Us Down , introduced the now-famous expression of the title into the common vernacular. Weapons of Mass Instruction adds another chilling metaphor to the brief against conventional schooling. Gatto demonstrates that the harm school inflicts is rational and deliberate. The real function of pedagogy, he argues, is to render the common population manageable. To that end, young people must be conditioned to rely upon experts, to remain divided from natural alliances, and to accept disconnections from their own lived experiences. They must at all costs be discouraged from developing self-reliance and independence. Escaping this trap requires strategy Gatto calls “open source learning” which imposes no artificial divisions between learning and life. Through this alternative approach, our children can avoid being indoctrinated—only then that can they achieve self-knowledge, judgment, and courage. John Taylor Gatto is an internationally renowned speaker who lectures widely on school reform. He taught for thirty years in public schools before resigning on the op-ed pages of The Wall Street Journal during the year he was named New York’s official “Teacher of the Year.” On April 3, 2008, the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard credited Gatto with adding the expression “dumbing us down” to the school debate worldwide.

    Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


    Description

    Editorial Reviews From the Publisher Expanded in scope and improved in design, this revision of a best-selling guide to MAKE combines an easy-to-follow, step-by-step tutorial approach to using the MAKE utility on DOS, OS/2, and UNIX systems with concise reference material for both universal concepts and specific uses of the tool. Provides a basic, yet comprehensive, explanation of the usefulness and subtleties of the MAKE utility in general, and demonstrates the concepts in action with numerous, tested examples for specific versions of MAKE running under several popular operating systems.

    This manual provides step-by-step instructions for using this utility in UNIX and DOS environments. The MAKE utility was created to help programmers manage files that will be compiled and linked together to form a single executable program. However, due to a paucity of information on MAKE, most programmers implement it by trial and error. This combined tutorial and reference was designed to fill this gap. Focusing on three versions of make - from Microsoft, from Borland, and for UNIX systems - and their guidelines and applications, the handbook explains how MAKE works, suggests reasons for using it, demonstrates its versatility and flexibility through examples of tested MAKE files, and provides a smooth, logical progression for learning the utility from its basic concepts to its most sophisticated implementations.

    Death March (Yourdon Press Computing Series) pdf download

    Edward Yourdon: Death March (Yourdon Press Computing Series)

    Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


    Description

    Editorial Reviews Amazon.com Review Death march projects are becoming increasingly common in the software industry. The symptoms are obvious: The project schedule, budget, and staff are about half of what is necessary for completion. The planned feature set is unrealistic. People are working 14 hours a day, six or seven days a week, and stress is taking its toll. The project has a high risk of failure, yet management is either blind to the situation or has no alternative. Why do these irrational projects happen, and what, other than pure idiocy, leads people to get involved in them? Edward Yourdon has produced a wise and highly readable book on the entire death march phenomenon and the best way to steer through one. He takes a close look at the types of projects that often become death marches and the corporate politics and culture that typically produce them; Yourdon helps you examine your own motivations and those of corporate managers who enable death marches to take shape. Much of Death March is about the human element of highly stressful projects. The author's plain-spoken observations on the dysfunctional organization--the Machiavellian politics, naive optimism, lust for power, fear, and sheer managerial stupidity that guide so many death marches--make for a refreshing change from other project management books. You'll also find much practical advice to help you survive, everything from negotiating with upper management to breathing life into faltering projects. He'll even help you determine if you should look for another job. If you've ever worked in a death march situation or been a client of a company addicted to death march management, this book will help you understand what happened. More importantly, it will help you prepare for future encounters with death marches. Death March is highly recommended for anyone involved in software development. From the Inside Flap PrefaceOur achievements speak for themselves. What we have to keep track of are our failures, discouragements, and doubts. We tend to forget the past difficulties, the many false starts, and the painful groping. We see our past achievements as the end result of a clean forward thrust, and our present difficulties as signs of decline and decay.— Eric Hoffer Reflections on the Human Condition, aph. 157 (1973) I know . . . you're intrigued by the title of this book, and you decided to peek inside to see what it's all about. But, you're busy, busy, busy — and you don't know if you have the time to read yet another book about managing software projects. Especially if it's a book that tells you how things should be done in an ideal world where rational men and women make calm, sensible decisions about the budget, schedule, and resources for your software project. However, you may have noticed that we don't live in an ideal world — and chances are that your project requires you to interact with people who seem anything but rational and whose decisions hardly seem calm or sensible. In other words, you're working on a death march project. The wonderful thing about the title of this book is that I don't even have to explain it. Every time I mention it to friends and colleagues, they just laugh and say, "Oh, yeah, you must be talking about my project!" These days it's likely to be my project, and your project, and everyone else's project too — we're all working on death march projects. It seems to me that the first question you should be asking yourself (though it may not occur to you until the end of your project) is: "Why on earth did I let myself get suckered into such a project?" I'll discuss this in the first chapter, because my experience as a consultant — visiting and observing many such projects from the sidelines — is that the world would be a healthier place if more of us had the guts to stand up and say, "Hell, no! I won't join this death march!" But, assuming there's no escape — e.g., there are no other jobs available or you've got some form of a "golden handcuff" relationship with your employer that strongly discourages you from leaving — the next question is: "How can I survive this project without ruining my health, my sanity, and my dignity?" If you're an optimist, you might even be wondering how you can conquer the obstacles before you to finish the death march project on time and under budget. But, if you've been through a number of these projects before, you probably know that the odds are stacked against you and that survival is the best you can hope for. Having worked in the software industry for over 30 years, I find that our profession has a rather interesting reaction to death march projects. In some parts of the industry, especially in Silicon Valley, such projects are glorified as a test of fortitude, somewhat akin to climbing Mount Everest barefoot. I felt this way during my first few software projects back in the mid-1960s, and the fact that the same attitude prevails a generation later suggests to me that it's likely to be a permanent phenomenon, as long as technology continues to change as rapidly as it has been during my lifetime. Ours is not a mature industry. Every year there's a new Mount Everest to climb and a new crop of hotshot programmers who are convinced that they can run barefoot all the way to the top. Another segment of our industry, however, regards death march projects as embarrassing failures. We've all been bombarded with statistics about the prevalence of schedule delays, budget overruns, buggy software, disgruntled users, and outright project failures. We've been told repeatedly by consultants, gurus, and methodologists that the reason for all these embarrassments is that we've been using the wrong methods (or no methods at all), or the wrong tools, or the wrong project management techniques. In other words, death march projects exist because we're stupid or incompetent. If you talk to battle-scarred veterans in the field — the ones who have gone through a couple of death march projects and have learned that it's really not fun to climb Mount Everest barefoot — you'll often hear them say, "Hey! I'm not stupid! Of course I would like to use the right methods and tools and project management approaches. But, my senior management and my end users won't let me. The reason we have such a ridiculous schedule for this project is that it was imposed upon us on the first day, before we had the faintest idea what the project was all about!" Conclusion: Death march projects occur because senior managers are Machiavellian bastards and/or because our users are naive and unrealistic. No doubt there's some truth to all this. We do make a lot of stupid mistakes managing our projects, our senior managers do indulge in ridiculous political games, and our end users do make unreasonable demands on us. I'm convinced that much of this is due to the rapid pace of change, combined with the usual disrespect that each new generation has for the advice offered by the previous generation. Why on earth should today's generation of Java-oriented hotshots pay any attention to the advice offered by my generation, whose formative programming experience took place 30 years ago in Autocoder and assembly language? And, how should today's generation of business users know what kind of Web-based application is reasonable to ask for, considering that their predecessors were asking for mainframe-based, on-line systems, with character-based, dumb-terminal interfaces? Whatever the explanation for the phenomenon, I've come to a sobering conclusion: Death march projects are the norm, not the exception. I think that today's software developers and project managers are pretty smart and are eager to manage projects in a rational way; I also think that today's business users and senior managers are much more computerliterate than they were a generation ago and much less naive about what software developers can be expected to deliver with finite resources. That doesn't stop both groups of smart individuals from embarking upon yet another death march project — because the competitive business pressures demand it and the new technological opportunities invite it. The business managers may be fully aware that a rational schedule for their new system would require 12 calendar months, but they'll also tell you emphatically that unless it's available in six months, the competition will grab the entire market for their new product or service. And, the technical staff may be fully aware that new technologies like the Internet are still quite risky, but they will tell you that if the new technology does work, it will provide a strategic competitive advantage that makes it well worth the risk. To put it another way, industry surveys from organizations such as the Standish Group, as well as statistical data from metrics gurus such as Capers Jones, Howard Rubin, Paul Strassmann, and Larry Putnam, suggest that the average project is likely to be 6 to 12 months behind schedule and 50 to 100 percent over budget. The situation varies depending on the size of the project and various other factors, but the grim reality is that you should expect that your project will operate under conditions that will almost certainly lead to some degree of death march behavior on the part of the project manager and his or her technical staff. If a project starts off with these high-risk factors, there's going to be a lot of overtime and wasted weekends, and there's likely to be a lot of emotional and physical burnout before the end of the project. Even if the project begins in a reasonably calm, rational fashion, there's a good chance that it will deteriorate into a death march project as time goes on — either because the original schedule and budget will turn out to have been highly unrealistic, or because the user will add more requirements to those upon which the original schedule and estimate was based. So the real questions are: If you can't avoid death march projects, how can you survive them? What should you do to increase your chances of success? When should you be willing to compromise — and when should you be willing to put your job on the line and resign if you can't get your way? That is what this book is about. As you will come to realize, the solution will involve issues of peopleware, processes and methodologies, as well as tools and technologies. If you're going to manage a death march project, should you insist on the freedom to staff the team with people of your own choosing? Should you take a hard-line approach with process methodologies like the SEI-CMM model, or should you let the project team abandon all formal methodologies if they feel it will help them accomplish the job? Should you insist on adequate programming languages, workstations, and CASE tools — or is it more important to fight your political battles over the issues of people and processes? These issues are as relevant to the manager in charge of the project, as they are to the technical staff that actu --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    Editorial Reviews Review "This insightful book, filled with mesmerizing images, presents a glimpse into the changing face of Japanese design and architecture." -- Phoenix Home and Garden --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. About the Author Michiko Rico NosT has written extensively on design and lifestyle-related topics for both Japanese magazines and television.

    Japan has always intrigued the world with its deceptively simple blending of architecture, landscape and design. Zen temples, the famous tea ceremony, formal gardens, the use of wood, paper and other materials in the form of screens and floors all have evolved over the years to create a varied, yet indisputably unique style. Of the 40 homes profiled in this book, each home represents in its own way the changing face of Japanese interior design and architecture.

    Geoff Dyer: The Ongoing Moment

    Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


    Description

    Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly Having already tackled jazz ( But Beautiful ) and D.H. Lawrence ( Out of Sheer Rage ), cultural critic Dyer now turns his intelligent and discriminating eye to photography. Essentially a fast-moving series of highly focused "close readings," his volume zeros in on the way "certain photographs serve as nodes, places where subjects initially considered distinct converge and merge." Thus Paul Strand's "Blind Woman, New York, 1916" leads Dyer not only to other photographs of the blind by Lewis Hine and Gary Winogrand, but also to a survey of different portraits of blind author Jorge Luis Borges and to a consideration of Walker Evans's SX-70 photographs. Like the great English critic John Berger ( Ways of Seeing ), whom Dyer wrote about in Ways of Telling , the author has a lively and dramatic sense of provocation. He declares, for instance, that William Eggleston's photographs look "like they were taken by a Martian who lost the ticket for his flight home and ended up working at a gun shop in a small town near Memphis." He also has a loose-limbed—and mostly surefooted—ability to balance a number of elements into a functioning whole. In an overcrowded field, Dyer's book is distinguished by an idiosyncratic and infectious enthusiasm. 8 pages color illus. not seen by PW . (Oct. 4) Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From The New Yorker A self-styled "scholarly gatecrasher," Dyer has written with equal fervor about D. H. Lawrence, military history, and jazz. Here he turns to photography, with the caveat "I make no claim to being an expert in this or any other field." Indeed, he confesses, "I don't even own a camera." The resulting book is a curious encyclopedia, purposefully eclectic and incomplete. The images are taken mostly from the canon of American twentieth-century photography, but Dyer arranges them in unexpected clusters—blind accordionists here, vacant benches there. He imagines William Eggleston's pictures to be the work of a Martian, stranded in Middle America, who keeps looking for his lost ticket home, "with a haphazard thoroughness that confounds established methods of investigation." The Martian is an apt stand-in for Dyer, a flâneur in the world of photography, who bypasses the famous sights in favor of back alleys and side streets. Copyright © 2006 The New Yorker --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. See all Editorial Reviews

    Great photographs change the way we see the world; The Ongoing Moment changes the way we look at both. Focusing on the ways in which canonical figures like Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, Walker Evans, André Kertész, Edward Weston, Dorothea Lange, Diane Arbus, and William Eggleston have photographed the same things—barber shops, benches, hands, roads, signs–award-winning writer Geoff Dyer seeks to identify their signature styles. In doing so, he constructs a narrative in which these photographers–many of whom never met–constantly encounter one another. The result is a kaleidoscopic work of extraordinary originality and insight.

    Michael Baigent: Holy Blood, Holy Grail

    Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


    Description

    Editorial Reviews Amazon.com Review Michael Baigent, Henry Lincoln, and Richard Leigh, authors of The Messianic Legacy , spent over 10 years on their own kind of quest for the Holy Grail, into the secretive history of early France. What they found, researched with the tenacity and attention to detail that befits any great quest, is a tangled and intricate story of politics and faith that reads like a mystery novel. It is the story of the Knights Templar, and a behind-the-scenes society called the Prieure de Sion, and its involvement in reinstating descendants of the Merovingian bloodline into political power. Why? The authors of Holy Blood, Holy Grail assert that their explorations into early history ultimately reveal that Jesus may not have died on the cross, but lived to marry and father children whose bloodline continues today. The authors' point here is not to compromise or to demean Jesus, but to offer another, more complete perspective of Jesus as God's incarnation in man. The power of this secret, which has been carefully guarded for hundreds of years, has sparked much controversy. For all the sensationalism and hoopla surrounding Holy Blood, Holy Grail and the alternate history that it outlines, the authors are careful to keep their perspective and sense of skepticism alive in its pages, explaining carefully and clearly how they came to draw such combustible conclusions. --Jodie Buller --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Review Fly page has embossed stamp of previous owners name. In good shape --Seller --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. See all Editorial Reviews

    Is the traditional, accepted view of the life of Christ in some way incomplete? • Is it possible Christ did not die on the cross? • Is it possible Jesus was married, a father, and that his bloodline still exists? • Is it possible that parchments found in the South of France a century ago reveal one of the best-kept secrets of Christendom? • Is it possible that these parchments contain the very heart of the mystery of the Holy Grail? According to the authors of this extraordinarily provocative, meticulously researched book, not only are these things possible — they are probably true! so revolutionary, so original, so convincing, that the most faithful Christians will be moved; here is the book that has sparked worldwide controversey. "Enough to seriously challenge many traditional Christian beliefs, if not alter them." — Los Angeles Times Book Review "Like Chariots of the Gods? ...the plot has all the elements of an international thriller." — Newsweek From the Paperback edition.

    Modern Magic [ Free Download]

    Professor Hoffman: Modern Magic

    Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


    Description



    CONSIDERING the great antiquity and the unfading popularity of the magic art, it seems at first sight a matter of wonder that its literature should be so extremely scanty. In England, in particular, is this the case. Until within the last few years it would have been difficult to name a single book worth reading upon this subject, the whole literature of the art consisting of single chapters in books written for the amusement of youth (which were chiefly remarkable for the unanimity with which each copied, without acknowledgment, from its predecessors), and handbooks sold at the entertainments of various public performers, who took care not to reveal therein any trick which they deemed worthy of performance by themselves. Upon a little consideration, however, the scarcity of treatises on "White Magic" is easily accounted for. The more important secrets of the art have been known but to few, and those few have jealously guarded them, knowing that the more closely they concealed the clue to their mysteries, the more would those mysteries be valued. Indeed, the more noted conjurors of fifty years ago strove to keep the secret of their best tricks not only from the outside world, but from their confreres. At the present day the secrets of the art are not so well kept; and there is hardly a trick performed upon the stage which the amateur may not, at a sufficient expenditure of shillings or guineas, procure at the conjuring depots. There being, therefore, no longer the same strict secrecy, the literature of magic has improved a little, though it still leaves much to be desired. The general ambition of compilers seems to be to produce books containing nominally some fabulous number of tricks. In order to do this, they occupy two-thirds of their space with chemical and arithmetical recreations, and, as a necessary result, the portion devoted to conjuring tricks, properly so called, is treated so briefly and scantily as to be practically useless.

All rights reserved. Chapter 1 Christmas Central The key to making your holiday dreams come true In so many ways, the kitchen is the heart of the home. And when the holidays roll around, the kitchen is -- or should be -- Christmas Central. The kitchen is where so many Christmas memories come from, where so many Christmas dreams begin. It's a place of intoxicating aromas, tantalizing tastes -- of bustling activity and endless creativity. It's a place where old meets new, where tradition gets spiced up with fresh ideas, where grown-ups and kids, friends and family, come to together to cook and prepare and enjoy the festive results. You know what I'm talking about. There's the spicy-sweet, familiar fragrance of cinnamon and apples, the tangy taste of cranberries and cider, the sugary goodness of Christmas cookies. There's the childlike fun of playing with flour and sugar, the reward of giving presents you've made with your own hands. There's the camaraderie of swapping stories while chopping onions, the creative satisfaction of setting a beautiful table and gathering friends and acquaintances for a festive party. And of course there's the joy of gathering around a table to celebrate the coming of Love into the world. All these things are what the Christmas Kitchen means to me, to most of us. And I'm not just talking about the kitchen at Grandma's house or in a Norman Rockwell fantasy or on the pages of your gorgeous coffee-table Christmas book. I believe any kitchen can be the place where the fun and heartwarming business of Christmas memory making begins. And I promise you, you don't have to be June Cleaver or Martha Stewart -- or even Tammy Maltby -- to pull it off. Your kitchen, whatever it looks like, is your number one resource for holiday celebration and decoration. It's your comforting place to nurture relationships with people related by blood and those you choose to welcome into your life. It's rich with possibilities for gift giving, for expressing thanks, for reaching out to others and showing love to them. It's also an ideal place to connect with children, passing along the experience of Christmas and recovering a little of the child in you at the same time. Or it can be all those things -- if you don't let the busyness of the season or your own inflated expectations or kitchen insecurities overwhelm you. But that's the problem, isn't it? So many women I know long to have the kind of delicious, fragrant, fun, and festive holiday I've just described. They pore over magazines, delighting in the beautiful images and ideas. But that stuff doesn't happen in their own homes -- not the way they'd hoped. And they cite any number of reasons. "My kitchen (or my house) is too small." "I'm not much of a cook." "The idea of entertaining scares me to death." "The kids are too small -- they're all underfoot." "The kids are all grown -- why bother?" "I don't have kids -- I don't even have a family!" "Money's tight." And then there's the perennial "I'm just too busy!" We're all too busy -- with jobs, with kids, with other obligations. There really are a million excuses -- good ones! A million valid reasons to just pick up a dozen cupcakes at the bakery for a child's party or a loaf of store-bought bread for a potluck and order the turkey-and-dressing package from the supermarket for Christmas dinner. Don't get me wrong. There's absolutely nothing wrong with taking shortcuts. In fact, I think shortcuts can be crucial in making the Christmas Kitchen a real possibility in many people's lives. (You'll fi nd a lot of them in this book!) Not everything needs to be made from scratch. Not everything needs to be done the way Grandma did it -- or even the way you've been told is the "right way." And not everyone is in a position to throw a big party or even stage a traditional Christmas dinner. But if you've picked up this book, I know something about you. I know you don't really want a prefab, carryout, catch-as-catch-can Christmas season. You certainly don't want a hectic, stressful, overworked holiday season where you wear yourself out meeting everyone's unrealistic expectations. Instead, you dream about a Christmas that is beautiful, special, warm, delicious, and as stress-free as possible. In some part of your heart, the Christmas Kitchen lives in all its intoxicating glory. And I'm here to tell you it can be part of your life -- regardless of your circumstances, your kitchen skills, or your time limitations, and with far less stress and work than you ever expected. The Christmas Kitchen, you see, isn't just a collection of appliances, recipes, and techniques. It's really a state of mind and heart, and the best way to get there is to adjust your thinking. How? A good place to start is to let go of perfection. Perfectionism can paralyze you, while an attitude of "good enough" can set you free. Next, I encourage you to embrace the principle of true hospitality -- not performing for others or impressing them or "entertaining" them, but using your life and your home (including your kitchen) to communicate to people how much you value them.* And it's not just something you do for guests but also for your family -- and for yourself! I hope you'll also promise yourself, no matter what, to enjoy the experience of Christmas, to laugh and celebrate and sometimes sit in silent wonder. It would be such a shame to be so caught up in activities, kitchen or otherwise, that you end up missing Christmas in your heart. And finally, when you've wrapped your mind around a different approach to a beautiful Christmas, I urge you to start simply...but simply start. That's so important! Take just one step beyond dreaming and do just one delicious thing to make your Christmas season merry and bright. It really doesn't have to be much. Maybe your one thing will be to just sit quietly, read this book, and dream while sipping a warm mug of holiday cider. But that's the beauty of it -- because once you do that one simple thing, I predict you'll find yourself wanting to do something else. And before you know it, your kitchen really will be Christmas Central, a true gathering place for making memories and serving up holiday joy for family and friends old and new. Are you ready? I am. Let's take our fi rst simple step into the Christmas Kitchen.

    The Heart of the Home Even in today's busy times, the kitchen is the heart of the home.

From the Inside Flap    I received my very first Gooseberry Patch cookbook as a wedding gift 13 years ago. It was Farmhouse Christmas . This started a serious Gooseberry Patch addiction! I now have almost every single comb-bound book and many of the other collections. My favorite thing about the cookbooks is that every time I open one, it reminds me of home. My Mom would always have something yummy baking or cooking, and she taught me at a very young age how to do things in the kitchen. My Mom passed away 5 years ago when I was just 30 years old, and every time I read one of your cookbooks, it takes me back to her and home. I thank you for that!   Brittney J Green Frederick, CO        I always give Gooseberry Patch cookbooks to newlyweds and new mothers! They are the best cookbooks to help those who are just learning to cook and those with limited time. Gooseberry Patch always has the the most delicious recipes. You know that they're all family favorites and have been made numerous times, so they won't fail. Gooseberry Patch cookbooks give new cooks the confidence they need when just starting out!   Amy Johnson Huntington Beach, CA      I look forward to my fall quiet time at home with a cup of hot apple cider and a doughnut or two...when I can sit and relax. I always read one of the fall or holiday Gooseberry Patch books that I pluck from the overflowing bookcase...I have collected over many years! These books are my treasures, and I never tire of reading them over and over again.   Sherry Svoboda Abington, MD      Thank you for publishing down-to-earth, good, easy, family-oriented recipes. I have tons of cookbooks, but they all call for outlandish ingredients...but yours, wow! Finally some recipes I have ingredients for. I am a stay-at-home mother of 5 children, ages 9,7,5,3 and 1 years old, and Gooseberry Patch cookbooks are life-savers. Thank you!   Tammy Barlow Hildale, UT See all Editorial Reviews
