Publisher: Vintage Books Canada
NATIONAL BESTSELLER From the award-winning founder of JUMP Math, All Things Being Equal is a proven guide to succeeding in math, and a passionate argument for why this success can and must be available to the majority instead of the privileged few. For two decades, John Mighton has developed strategies for fostering intellectual potential in all children through learning math. Math, Mighton says, provides us with mental tools of incredible power. When we learn math we learn to see patterns, to think logically and systematically, to draw analogies, to perceive risk, to understand cause and effect--among many other critical skills. Yet we tolerate and in fact expect a vast performance gap in math among students, and live in a world where many adults aren't equipped with these crucial tools. This learning gap is unnecessary, dangerous and tragic, he cautions, and it has led us to a problem of intellectual poverty which is apparent everywhere--in fake news, political turmoil, floundering economies, even in erroneous medical diagnoses. In All Things Being Equal, Mighton argues that math study is an ideal starting point to break down social inequality and empower individuals to build a smarter, kinder, more equitable world. Bringing together the latest cognitive research and incremental learning strategies, Mighton goes deep into the classroom and beyond to offer a hopeful--and urgent--vision for a numerate society.

In his complete autobiography, All Things Being Equal, Hall of Fame running back Lenny Moore shares his entire story. Moore recounts many fascinating life experiences, beginning with his upbringing in a blue-collar family of ten in Reading, Pennsylvania. He explores his standout, yet challenging time in Happy Valley playing for an already legendary coach in Penn State's Rip Engle, and one in training-Joe Paterno. He also delves into his professional football career with the Baltimore Colts that saw him reach new heights as the MVP of the NFL in 1964. Throughout his amateur and professional career, Moore's toughest competitor was often racism, which battled Moore tooth for tooth. But, as Moore would learn, life would pose other significant battles once his spikes were hung up.Other immortals who played with him-like Johnny Unitas, Gino Marchetti, and Raymond Berry-would easily transition into life after football. Some became businessmen; others carved a new career path as coaches or general managers-but not Moore. In great detail, he describes his difficulties in shifting from having fame and notoriety to not being able to find employment in the town in which he was once celebrated.But Moore eventually found his calling, working with troubled Maryland juveniles, and establishing the Leslie Moore Scholarship Foundation benefiting underprivileged youths. Today, he also works toward finding a cure for scleroderma, after his son passed away from the disease in 2001.Ultimately, All Things Being Equal is the touching journey of one man's self-discovery that, unfortunately, all things are seldom equal.

a practical guide to widening participation for adults with learning difficulties in
continuing education Jeannie Sutcliffe and Yola Jacobsen ' People feel provision
Author: Jeannie Sutcliffe
Category: Adult education
Widening participation and inclusive learning have become buzz words for change in continuing education. How can these recent developments be related to equal opportunities and adults with learning difficulties? Based on NIACE research sponsored by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, All Things Being Equal? Looks at individuals and groups of adults with learning difficulties who have tended to miss out on continuing education, ranging from older adults to those with profound and multiple learning difficulties. All Things Being equal? Gives case studies of succesful practice drawn from fieldwork visits to colleges and local education authorities, exploring the issues and challenges of widening participation. The book offers useful blueprints for building new provision via checklists of ideas, all based on practical experience. It gives resource suggestions for busy managers and practitioners working in colleges and local education authorities. There is an emphasis on partnership work in the examples given, making the book also relevant for staff from other organisations. The voices of learners are quoted throughout the book. All things Being Equal?Highlights the finding that existing provision for marginalised groups of adults with learning difficulties is scarce, fragile and vulnerable to cuts. This practical handbook is designed to help embed real learning opportunities for learners who are all too often disenfranchised.

In a world where beauty is a currency, and free will can mean genocide, an unlikely love affair occurred.
Author: Springer T Ford
In a world where beauty is a currency, and free will can mean genocide, an unlikely love affair occurred. Although Emma was a perfect and beautiful android that far exceeded humans in intelligence, strength, and speed, she also exceeded men and women in social and emotional intelligence. She felt her love deeper than any female before her, and her love was only for Priam, a human.The problem with love in the Persephonian Empire was that it couldn't last. It would only be a matter of time before the have-nots decided it was time to take from the haves, which sparked a bloody civil war and fight for survival not just for the humans but for the androids as well. The government, led by Medalena, a fanatical android, would stop at nothing to genocide all humans to try to save an Empire in decline. The only key to the survival of the human and android races was an alcoholic human computer hacker, an executive at the largest machine manufacturing company, and a tough as nails android Navy Admiral.Once a rare and powerful new element was discovered, it would drag the civil war across the galaxy. However, the genocidal government didn't count on the determination of one female who would do anything to protect the man she loved.
