Then, on Thanksgiving Day, her older brother, Tom, brings home a pink, squirmy bundle wrapped in an old football jersey—a piglet he rescued from a nearby farm. Her name is Hamlet.

I Got Schooled

Original Synopsis

"I Got Schooled has a total of 320 pages which are papers from writer 'M. Night Shyamalan'. In this vital new book, the famed filmmaker tells how his passion for education reform led him to learn that there are five tested, indispensable keys to transforming America’s underperforming schools. I Got Schooled offers a look at America’s educational achievement gap that could only have come from an outsider. Famed director M. Night Shyamalan has long had a serious interest in education. The founda­tion he and his wife started once gave college scholarships to promising inner-city students, but Shyamalan realized that these scholarships did nothing to improve education for all the other students in under-performing schools. When he learned that some schools were succeeding with similar student populations, he traveled across the country to find out how they did this and whether these schools had something in common. He eventually learned that there are five keys to closing America’s achievement gap. But just as we must do several things to maintain good health— eat the right foods, exercise regularly, get a good night’s sleep—so too must we use all five keys to turn around our lowest-performing schools. These five keys are used by all the schools that are succeeding, and no schools are succeeding without them. Before he discovered them, Shyamalan investigated some popular reform ideas that proved to be dead ends, such as smaller class size, truculent unions, and merit pay for teachers. He found that the biggest obstacle to school reform is cognitive biases: too many would-be reformers have committed themselves to false solutions. This is a deeply personal book by an unbiased observer determined to find out what works and why so that we as a nation can fulfill our obliga­tion to give every student an opportunity for a good education. 2013-09-10 time of publication of the book, [-Simon and Schuster-]"

An Unlikely Terrorist

Original Synopsis

"An Unlikely Terrorist has a total of 312 pages which are papers from writer 'Tom Garland'. In downtown Dallas, former CIA Agent John Campbell is having a good day until he spots Lisa Capps. The last time he'd seen Lisa was fifteen years ago when they were saying good-bye, ending a two year relationship. Before John can get Lisa's attention, she jumps into a car and speeds away. Moments later a multitude of explosions turn downtown Dallas into complete chaos. With nearly two hundred dead, John can't help but question the suspicious nature of Lisa Capps' sudden departure prior to the explosions. John's premature exodus from the CIA comes to an abrupt end. John elicits the help of a man known inside the CIA as the Wizard. The Wizard can find anyone, anywhere. What he discovers about John's old girlfriend is shocking. Lisa no longer resides in the United States, but lives in Iraq with her husband Doctor Amon Zandipour. Their son Andalee, and his grandfather, were killed on Andalee's third birthday by stray bullets; Zandipour swears were fired by American soldiers. Zandipour, now consumed by hatred for America, is out for revenge. John's search for Zandipour begins in Iraq, where he will find out the disturbing truth about Lisa Capps. Racing against time, John traces Zandipour to his extravagant home on Akdamar Island in Turkey. There John discovers what Zandipour's next target is. It's far more elaborate than Dallas. With time running out, and thousands of lives at stake, can John stop Zandipour before it's too late? 2014-08-23 time of publication of the book, [-Xlibris Corporation-]"

The Man Who Talks to Dogs

Original Synopsis

"The Man Who Talks to Dogs has a total of 256 pages which are papers from writer 'Melinda Roth'. Go to any unpopulated or abandoned area in any given urban setting, and you'll find them. Thousands and thousands of wild dogs-abandoned to disease, starvation, and inevitable death-are leading short and brutal lives in the no-man's-land between domestication and wildness, byproducts of the human destitution around them. A lucky few are saved by dedicated rescuers, and Randy Grim, has emerged as one of the country's leading dog saviors. After years of rescuing dogs on his own, he founded Stray Rescue of St. Louis, an organization dedicated to rescue and rehabilitation. These are dogs that belong to no one, the ones animal-control experts can't catch and humane shelters won't deal with. They are stray or feral, either abandoned or born wild on the streets, which means they won't come near humans and statistically won't live past their second year. And their numbers are growing every day. In The Man Who Talks to Dogs, journalist Melinda Roth narrates Grim's dramatic, inspiring efforts and tells the horrific and heartwarming stories of the dogs he saves, showing how this growing national health problem-controlled by no federal or local regulations-can no longer be ignored. 2004-07-01 time of publication of the book, [-Macmillan-]"

True Confessions from the Ninth Concession

Original Synopsis

"True Confessions from the Ninth Concession has a total of pages which are papers from writer 'Dan Needles'. Author and playwright Dan Needles has long delighted readers and audiences alike with his insightful and laugh-out-loud perspective on small-town life, published in such bestselling books as Wingfield's World (Random House, 2011), Wingfield's Hope (Key Porter, 2005), With Axe and Flask (McFarlane, Walter and Ross, 2002) and Letters From Wingfield Farm (Key Porter, 1988). In 1988, Needles and his wife left the city to start a family in a country community located two hours north of Toronto. Together they stocked their farm with sheep, cattle, chickens, pigs and, eventually, four children. Needles' charming chronicle unfolds in essays dated from 1997 to 2016, offering homespun advice for successful country living--like whether to wave from the elbow or to merely raise one finger from the steering wheel when passing a neighbour in the car. He cautions on rural superstitions, such as when his neighbour hesitated before selling him weaner pigs because every time he does the wife of the farmer who's buying them becomes pregnant--which turned out to be true. Here too is the tale of an unlikely friendship between a "borderline" collie ("he's never bitten anything in his life and the sheep are catching on") and an odd duck named Ferdinand, as well as other hilarious stories involving an assortment of farm animals, including the weapon of choice to properly dispatch a rooster-gone-bad; the risks of giving a name to a potential Sunday dinner entrée; and how to outsmart a free-range pig. With his witty insight, Needles shares the art of neighbouring in the country--a place made for visits, and "where a figure walking across your field is more of a reason to put the kettle on than to call the police." True Confessions from the Ninth Concession is a sesquicentennial crop of antics and aphorisms by Canada's funniest farmer--one that presents a wonderful escape for world-weary city dwellers, and affirmative reading for anyone who is from, or has moved to, rural Canada. 2017-08-26 time of publication of the book, [-Douglas & McIntyre-]"

Pandemics

Original Synopsis

"Pandemics has a total of 272 pages which are papers from writer 'Peter C. Doherty'. Pandemics. The word conjures up images of horrific diseases sweeping the globe and killing everyone in their path. But such highly lethal illnesses almost never create pandemics. The reality is deadly serious but far more subtle. In Pandemics: What Everyone Needs to Know?, Peter Doherty, who won the Nobel Prize for his work on how the immune system recognizes virus-infected cells, offers an essential guide to one of the truly life-or-death issues of our age. In concise, question-and-answer format, he explains the causes of pandemics, how they can be counteracted with vaccines and drugs, and how we can better prepare for them in the future. Doherty notes that the term "pandemic" refers not to a disease's severity but to its ability to spread rapidly over a wide geographical area. Extremely lethal pathogens are usually quickly identified and confined. Nevertheless, the rise of high-speed transportation networks and the globalization of trade and travel have radically accelerated the spread of diseases. A traveler from Africa arrived in New York in 1999 carrying the West Nile virus; one mosquito bite later, it was loose in the ecosystem. Doherty explains how the main threat of a pandemic comes from respiratory viruses, such as influenza and SARS, which disseminate with incredible speed through air travel. The climate disruptions of global warming, rising population density, and growing antibiotic resistance all complicate efforts to control pandemics. But Doherty stresses that pandemics can be fought effectively. Often simple health practices, especially in hospitals, can help enormously. And research into the animal reservoirs of pathogens, from SARS in bats to HIV in chimpanzees, show promise for our prevention efforts. Calm, clear, and authoritative, Peter Doherty's Pandemics is one of the most critically important additions to the What Everyone Needs to Know? series.
