Self Help Books

To what extent should self help books be read? To me, it seems like authors are simply trying to make a killing exploiting the miseries of their readers. About 90% of the self help book industry is a load of crap, and the remaining 10% is not exactly helpful either. A good gauge of a self help book's worth is the emphasis it has on action. Unless action is emphasized, it is rather useless.

Lessons in How Not to Teach Math

The course I took in math education methods was worse than useless. Specifically, many education theorists hold that when students discover material for themselves, they learn it more deeply than when it is taught directly. In this vein, the prevailing belief in the education establishment is that although direct instruction is effective in helping students learn and use algorithms and mathematical procedures, it is ineffective in helping students develop mathematical thinking. According to the establishment, students should be “led” to their discovery of the answers. Providing explicit instruction is considered to be “handing it to the student” and prevents them...

The Science of Leonardo – Inside the Mind of the Great Genius of the Renaissance

Leonardo da Vinci's scientific explorations were virtually unknown during his lifetime, despite their extraordinarily wide range. He studied the flight patterns of birds to create some of the first human flying machines; designed military weapons and defenses; studied optics, hydraulics, and the workings of the human circulatory system; and created designs for rebuilding Milan, employing principles still used by city planners today. Perhaps most importantly, Leonardo pioneered an empirical, systematic approach to the observation of nature-what is known today as the scientific method.Drawing on over 6,000 pages of Leonardo's surviving notebooks, acclaimed scientist and bestselling author Fritjof Capra reveals Leonardo's...

Chiune Sugihara (杉原 千畝) Visas for Life

During World War II, he helped several thousand Jews leave the country by issuing transit visas to Jewish refugees so that they could travel to Japan. Most of the Jews who escaped were refugees from German-occupied Poland and residents of Lithuania. Sugihara wrote travel visas that facilitated the escape of more than 6,000 Jewish refugees to Japanese territory, risking his career and his family's lives.

Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant-in the blink of an eye-that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error?...

Mike Murdock – The 7 Laws of Success

I don't usually watch TV evangelist. They turn me off. I accidentally stumbled on to this when I got up @ 4:00 am in the morning when I had indigestion/stomach ache due to swallowing to much blood from a tooth extraction the day before. Too bad I wasn't able to DVR this. There is so much nuggets of truth, faith and inspiration in this 1.5 hours of Tv segment.

Theory and resistance in education: towards a pedagogy for the opposition

By Henry A. Giroux Book overview At the beginning of the new millennium, educators, parents, and others should reevaluate what it means for adults and young people to grow up in a world that has been radically altered by a hyper capitalism that monopolizes the educational force of culture as it ruthlessly eliminates those public spheres not governed by the logic of the market. Giroux provides new theoretical and political tools for addressing how pedagogy, knowledge, resistance, and power can be analyzed within and across a variety of cultural spheres, including but not limited to the schools. A new introduction...

Protected: Empire State College Essay

Sometime I get ask what drives me. I sometime wish I was can just work 9 to 5 and not pursue so many business activities and personal enrichment goals. Maybe my motivation lies in fear of failures or being not able to support myself and my family. At a very early age I witness hunger and personal turmoil. As former refugee from Vietnam my family and I was thrown in jail for trying to leave the country. After our 1st unsuccessful attempt my mother tried again, this time on a much bigger fishing boat. Our boat of 200 plus passengers...

Craftsmen and Wealth Creation – part 1

The last few nights I have been thinking about wealth creation and how one needs to go about doing it. To create wealth does one need talent, skills or a good education? To be honest I don't really know. If you look at the world there are many people who are wealthy, and they did not obtain thought the traditional mean. As I was driving to work today, I heard that Madonna has made over $200 millions dollars in concert sales. Wow!! $200 millions dollars. I remember watching her musical videos in the late 80s, and reading one of her...
