SHOCKING, BEAUTIFUL, PROVOCATIVE and WILD A big, bold manifesto covering most of our world's issues, this message feels good and positive overall because it's stacked with solutions that sandwich all problems.

Recognizing the enormous task of changing beliefs, you feel supported at times through a wild journey and the chapter A Whole World's Dark Night of the Soul offers solid footing in scary territory. This is an impassioned guide to breaking the chains that hold humanity back and an insightful, inciting examination of the juxtaposition between mankind's infinite potential and the limitations imposed by the plutocracy that will leave you vibrating with excitement! SOLUTIONS TO END THE LEFT/RIGHT DEBATE Refreshingly principled non partisan look at politics and the world Our future is our choice. Orwellian squared or freedom. This handbook ignores the rabbit holes and evidences just how moot most of these issues truly are. Taking out the trash from our conversations allows us to focus on the core issues.

Equipped with cultural tools like cell phones, computers and video cameras, youth are called upon to improvise and construct themselves symbolically in a continuously connected world; yet new teachers and students are still expected to learn and deliver standardized, placeless forms of scripted curriculum. This volume argues for improvisation as an approach to curriculum that recognizes the fundamentally creative aspects of learning that are often marginalized in communities of disadvantage. It provides interesting possibilities for schools that are working hard to keep up with technological, economic and cultural change, and argues for an improvised middle ground between structure and creativity. This volume outlines a two-year research project performed in a Canadian middle school, where school staff used student filmmaking as a way to expand teachers’ conceptions of literacy. It analyzes the response of students and parents as well as the student teachers that brought the program to the school. The improvisational techniques used while making the films paved the way for larger benefits of curricular improvisation to be explored.

Tolu Olorunda is a cultural critic whose work has regularly appeared on AlterNet, Black Commentator, CounterPunch, Truthout, and several other publications including ColorLines magazine, The Nation magazine, and Wiretap magazine. His book, The Substance of Truth, takes a frank look into what has become of a society that touts grand and lofty ideals which it often fails to fulfill. With essays addressing issues as broad as the education system, 21st century media culture, Hip-Hop culture, youth culture, neoliberalism, and moral poverty, Olorunda argues the days ahead would darken in promise if rigorous action isn’t soon applied to rectify the way people think, how they respond to their surroundings, and the decisions they take to make the world better than it stands today. This struggle, he insists, could define whether or not a livable future would exist for the most vulnerable of all—children, whose plights are increasingly cast aside and ignored. From the book: “At risk of appearing alarmist, it’s easy to ignore all the warning signs hanging around us that suggest the clock is ticking fast—real fast!—and that time left for due action is short. But if life for the next generation should contain some semblance of sanity—where life itself means more than shopping malls and commodities, where Power stands accountable to the demands of communities—all fear of coming across hyperbolic would have to give way to the realities staring us down. The risk also extends to coming across Pollyannaish, as though all the impurities and iniquities holding hostage society can be cured with essays or lectures. But we cannot afford to let this moment slip by unattended, unengaged. The problems number endless—and so do the possibilities. And at no other moment has a generation been more fortunate, with the ease of technology, to make miracles happen amidst frightening circumstances. At no other moment has the clarion call blared this clearly and loudly.”

Men inherit definitions about manhood, but many of these definitions no longer fit. A society that was once based on power, assumptions, and stereotypes is changing. Few people take time to learn about the history of male oppression, the foundations of male masculinity, and the evolution of the modern man. Join author Rod E. Keays as he examines these important topics and more, including why boys and men accept certain roles; why men bully each other; why its important to deal with emotions; and why its so hard for men to talk about sexuality. Keays explores his own experiences coping with the twists and turns that come with being a man. One thing he learns early on is that most men dont talk about their emotional highs and lows. As someone who likes to talk openly and frankly, he feels isolated, but he continues living life on his terms. Discover what good men have been doing for thousands of years and how mens groups can help men achieve their goals. The world may have its share of problems, but The Naturally Good Man continues to contribute to society.
