  • How do we know if a hot new technology will succeed or fail? Most of us, even experts, get it wrong all the time.

  • The want of an interesting work on Greek and Roman mythology, suitable for the requirements of both boys and girls, has long been recognized by the principals of our advanced schools. The study of the classics themselves, even where the attainments of the pupil have rendered this feasible, has not been found altogether successful in giving to the student a clear and succinct idea of the religious beliefs of the ancients, and it has been suggested that a work which would so deal with the subject as to render it at once interesting and instructive would be hailed as...

  • Permit me to dedicate to you, this volume of Indian myths and legends, derived from the story-telling circle of the native wigwams. That they indicate the possession, by the Vesperic tribes, of mental resources of a very characteristic kind—furnishing, in fact, a new point from which to judge the race, and to excite intellectual sympathies, you have most felicitously shown in your poem of Hiawatha. Not only so, but you have demonstrated, by this pleasing series of pictures of Indian life, sentiment, and invention, that the theme of the native lore reveals one of the true sources of our...

  • In this volume the myths and legends of ancient Egypt are embraced in a historical narrative which begins with the rise of the great Nilotic civilization and ends with the Græco−Roman Age. The principal deities are dealt with chiefly at the various periods in which they came into prominence, while the legends are so arranged as to throw light on the beliefs and manners and customs of the ancient people. Metrical renderings are given of such of the representative folk songs and poems as can be appreciated at the present day....

  • Each chapter opens with an overview provided by Erdoes and Ortiz. There are occasional editorial explanations at the ends of stories. They should expecially be applauded for including stories with humor. As someone with Indian ancestry, but not a traditional Indian upbringing, I enjoyed the experience of spiritual concordance with the basic philosophies, no matter which tribe or region of the country was being presented. The book is easily readable by most age groups; parents of younger children could read these as entertainment and even bed-tiime stories.

  • These days, there's hardly a mission statement that doesn't herald it, or a CEO who doesn't laud it. And yet despite all of the attention that business creativity has won over the past few years, maddeningly little is known about day-to-day innovation in the workplace. Where do breakthrough ideas come from? What kind of work environment allows them to flourish? What can leaders do to sustain the stimulants to creativity -- and break through the barriers? Teresa Amabile has been grappling with those questions for nearly 30 years.

  • Looking back in my 26 years in education, I can’t think of a time when a book like this was needed more. Increasingly, we struggle to teach more in less time, prepare students for tests we often find not useful or descriptive, and stay on top of the field by reading new professional titles and research—and we do it all alone.

I have also written books for the general public concerning simple steps that we can all take to lower our risk of heart disease.

  • In some countries, the possibility of women migrating may be influenced by religious and other sociocultural constraints. A study of Asian migration demonstrated that while women dominate migration flows from countries such as the Philippines and Sri Lanka, sociocultural factors in countries such as Bangladesh and Pakistan apparently limit female emigration (Battistella 2003, 1-33).

  • had thought to close up the cycle of my stories of life in the Mississippi Valley with "Roxy" which was published in 1878. But when I undertook by request of the editor to write a short story for "The Century Magazine," and to found it on a legendary account of one of President Lincoln's trials, the theme grew on my hands until the present novel was the result. It was written mostly at Nervi, near Genoa, where I could not by any possibility have verified the story I had received about 1867 from one of Lincoln's old neighbors. To have investigated the accuracy of my...

  • Twelve million U.S. teens, or about twothirds of those online, watched online video in May 2009. It’s clear that online video is becoming an important part of the overall teen viewing experience. Year over year, the audience grew 10% and the average number of minutes increased a stunning 79%: to three hours and six minutes per month. Torrid growth, yes, but the average teen still lags behind viewing of adults 18–24, adults 25–32 and adults 35–44.

  • In short, there is little reason to believe that a fiscal adjustment will lead to a substantial improvement in the United States’ trade position any time in the near future. This channel for offsetting the contractionary impact of deficit reduction is not very promising. The investment channel does not appear much more promising. With interest rates already at historic lows, it seems implausible that whatever further decline may occur as a result of adjustment could have very much impact.

  • Federal funding made available by the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) through the DNA Initiative helped state and local governments significantly increase the capacity of their DNA laboratories between 2005 and 2008. At the same time, the demand for DNA testing continues to outstrip the capacity of crime laboratories to process these cases. This report addresses the issue that crime laboratories are processing more cases than ever before, but their expanded capacity has not been able to meet the increased demand. The report examines what a backlog is and how backlogs can be reduced. ...
