Second Lives, Second Chances by Donald R. Laub, M.D. Book Resume:

The engrossing memoir of a plastic and reconstructive surgeon involved in groundbreaking and life-changing procedures Through his work in plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Donald Laub changed the lives of thousands of people who had been shunned by society. Dr. Laub’s influence fostered the development of three key areas in the surgical profession: pioneering and influencing international humanitarian medical missions in the developing world, being at the forefront of gender affirmation surgery for transgender people since 1968, and the education and training of over 50 plastic and reconstructive surgeons. His unstinting efforts to surgically correct cleft palates gave new lives to thousands of children in developing countries. As one of the original surgeons to perform gender affirmation surgery, Laub not only continually improved on his methods, but he also became a tireless advocate for the rights of transgender people. His non-profit foundation (Interplast, now called ReSurge International) has sent thousands of multidisciplinary teams to perform transformative and reconstructive surgery in the developing world. Second Lives, Second Chances is more than just a memoir; it’s a testament to how the determination of one person can bring others together to make a lasting difference in the world.

Taking Chances by John Haigh Book Resume:

What are the odds against winning the Lottery, making money in a casino, or backing the right horse? Every day, people make judgements on these matters and face other decisions that rest on their understanding of probability: buying insurance, following medical advice, carrying an umbrella. Yet many of us have a frightening ignorance of how probability works. Taking Chances presents an entertaining and fascinating exploration of probability, revealing traps and fallacies in the field. It describes and analyses a remarkable variety of situations where chance plays a role, including football pools, the Lottery, TV games, sport, cards, roulette, coins, and dice. The book guides the reader round common pitfalls, demonstrates how to make better informed decisions, and shows where the odds can be unexpectedly in your favour. This new edition has been fully updated, and includes information on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" and "The Weakest Link", plus a new chapter on Probability for Lawyers.

Loving Math by Lewis Forsheit Book Resume:

This book was written for high school students and teachers who love exploring beyond standard math curricula for a deeper understanding of the principles and applications of mathematics. It is also for anyone who loves the pursuit of a problem solution, including both professional and amateur mathematicians. The vehicle that transports us through this exploration is the study and solution of classical and advanced math problems. As a high school math student, an engineer, a businessman and, ultimately, a high school math teacher, I collected and created math problems and solutions that can be used for advanced study. Some of the problems may be very familiar to you; some may not. A few may be quite easy to do; others will take more time. Included are classical proofs and their extensions that are often omitted in today's curricula. Beyond the pure enjoyment of this exploration, we also attempt to find a "deeper understanding" of the math. We address four larger aspects of "understanding," namely: convention, evidence, perspective and connection. A portion of these aspects is addressed in the solutions, themselves. The rest is in comments, which come after the solutions. The comments range widely, including: additional points regarding the math itself, historical factoids, linguistics, suggestions for teachers, some personal experiences regarding the material, etc. Readers who only skim the problems and solutions might still find the applications and comments quite interesting. It is hoped that this book will assist teachers and students alike in exploring the subject of mathematics in a new way, whether using material that is thousands of years old, or recently developed. Each problem can be used as a single assignment, done in a few minutes, or a term project that could require intuition, technique, research and/or fortitude (to plow through it). The material can be adapted for use in the standard classroom, subject to students' ability and the constrictions of uniform curricula. It is, perhaps, more applicable to classrooms with the freedom to experiment with project learning and with longer assignment periods. School math clubs or math teams might find this text a handy reference to hone skills, learn new techniques and satisfy the quest for more exciting material beyond the routine. Although the primary focus here is the application of math principles to math problems, these studies are extended to interdisciplinary examples in the sciences, engineering, finance, social studies, etc. The subject material itself is organized into groups. There are twenty-two geometry/trigonometry problems, many of which are "classic proofs." Though some have been forgotten or ignored at large, they are offered here with some new ideas and approaches. There are ten algebra problems, all of which are extensions of a standard curriculum, and offer fresh insights when studied as a group. Statistics, the newest subject to be added to the high school curriculum, has three problems. And calculus, which is not always studied in high schools, has five problems.

Using R for Introductory Statistics by John Verzani Book Resume:

The second edition of a bestselling textbook, Using R for Introductory Statistics guides students through the basics of R, helping them overcome the sometimes steep learning curve. The author does this by breaking the material down into small, task-oriented steps. The second edition maintains the features that made the first edition so popular, while updating data, examples, and changes to R in line with the current version. See What’s New in the Second Edition: Increased emphasis on more idiomatic R provides a grounding in the functionality of base R. Discussions of the use of RStudio helps new R users avoid as many pitfalls as possible. Use of knitr package makes code easier to read and therefore easier to reason about. Additional information on computer-intensive approaches motivates the traditional approach. Updated examples and data make the information current and topical. The book has an accompanying package, UsingR, available from CRAN, R’s repository of user-contributed packages. The package contains the data sets mentioned in the text (data(package="UsingR")), answers to selected problems (answers()), a few demonstrations (demo()), the errata (errata()), and sample code from the text. The topics of this text line up closely with traditional teaching progression; however, the book also highlights computer-intensive approaches to motivate the more traditional approach. The authors emphasize realistic data and examples and rely on visualization techniques to gather insight. They introduce statistics and R seamlessly, giving students the tools they need to use R and the information they need to navigate the sometimes complex world of statistical computing.

Lost Causes by Chad R. Trulson,Darin R. Haerle,Jonathan W. Caudill,Matt DeLisi Book Resume:

What should be done with minors who kill, maim, defile, and destroy the lives of others? The state of Texas deals with some of its most serious and violent youthful offenders through "determinate sentencing," a unique sentencing structure that blends parts of the juvenile and adult justice systems. Once adjudicated via determinate sentencing, offenders are first incarcerated in the Texas Youth Commission (TYC). As they approach age eighteen, they are either transferred to the Texas prison system to serve the remainder of their original determinate sentence or released from TYC into Texas's communities. The first long-term study of determinate sentencing in Texas, Lost Causes examines the social and delinquent histories, institutionalization experiences, and release and recidivism outcomes of more than 3,000 serious and violent juvenile offenders who received such sentences between 1987 and 2011. The authors seek to understand the process, outcomes, and consequences of determinate sentencing, which gave serious and violent juvenile offenders one more chance to redeem themselves or to solidify their place as the next generation of adult prisoners in Texas. The book's findings—that about 70 percent of offenders are released to the community during their most crime-prone years instead of being transferred to the Texas prison system and that about half of those released continue to reoffend for serious crimes—make Lost Causes crucial reading for all students and practitioners of juvenile and criminal justice.

L'école française, qui est le lieu du partage historique du grand espoir de la trilogie "Liberté, Egalité et Fraternité", pose à travers sa diversité culturelle le problème de la singularité et de l'universalité à la lumière de l'humanisme qu'elle enseigne. Se demander, au XXIe siècle, ce que l'école française en outre-mer fait à la société et à l'individu revient à évaluer l'importance persistante du poids historique des idéologies coloniales.

Shamrocks in the Heather by Clara M. Miller Book Resume:

Warning: this is not a religious book! Shamrocks in the Heather is the fifth book in the Brothers Series and the first in the Shamrocks Saga. It continues the story of the on-going battle between Michael the Archangel and his brother Lucifer by going back in time to trace the history of Theodora and Theodosia Quigley, the mysterious twins mentioned in the previous books. The story begins with the twins grandparents, Rory and Mary Ann Quigley and their beginnings in Ireland. Forced by circumstances to move to Scotland, they set about creating a new life for themselves and their growing family. Their oldest child, Conor, begins the family tradition of seeing and forming a close association with his Guardian Angel. These associations deepens quickly into warm and unique friendships and, time and time again, will prove to be critical. They same friendships also make the family the subject of much curiosity. The birth of the other Quigley children: Erin, Ethna, Angus and Martin, leads deeper and deeper into the story. World War I and the terrible flu pandemic that followed subjected the family to tragedy and heartbreak. Their mettle is tested again and again as time goes on. Perhaps its this testing that helps form the steel backbones of Theodora and Theodosia who will not be born until Martin moves to London and begins his career as a journalist. Ahead many joys, tragedies and surprises await the Quigleys and time alone will tell if theyre up to the challenge.. As with the others in the series, this is not a religious book nor meant to endorse or promote any type of belief. It is intended to provide a verbal roller-coaster ride. Plus, Ive grown to quite like The Old Man. I hope you have too. Enjoy! Other books by Clara M.
