Description : Книга, которую вы открыли, поможет изучить последовательность и логическое развитие взглядов и воззрений американского философа и писателя-романтика Генри Дэвида Торо, «смотрителя ливней и снежных бурь», как окрестил себя он сам, или «бакалавра природы», как называл его глава трансценденталистского кружка философ Ральф Уолдо Эмерсон. Итак, весной 1845 года 27-летний автор, проникнувшись философскими идеями Эмерсона, концепциями свободы личности, взаимоотношения духа и природы, решил поставить эксперимент по изоляции от общества и сосредоточении на самом себе и своих нуждах. Он поселился на окраине Конкорда (штат Массачусетс) в построенной им самим хижине на берегу Уолденского пруда. Все необходимое для жизни он обеспечивал самостоятельно, проводя большую часть времени за огородничеством, рыбалкой, чтением классиков, плаванием и греблей. При этом он не прятался от людей и регулярно общался с жителями Конкорда, включая самого владельца пруда – Эмерсона. Своим экспериментом Торо стремился дать понять современникам с их культом материального преуспевания, что хорошо и счастливо жить можно и вне общества, удовлетворяя все естественные потребности собственным трудом. Промышленной революции и зарождающемуся обществу потребления он противопоставил свободу от материальных забот, независимость, уединение, самодостаточность, созерцательность и близость к природе. Одной из причин «затерянности» Торо в философской традиции, его недостаточной известности русскоязычному читателю, возможно, является сознательный вызов Торо философской традиции в той современной ему (и привычной нам) форме, предусматривающей обязательную включенность собственных произведений в так называемый философский контекст, дискурсивность, «ткань современности» и т. д. Торо – проповедник «практического изоляционизма», сознательного разрыва с обществом как единственной возможности самосохранения и самореализации личности Тем не менее, Торо активно участвовал в общественной жизни. Так, в 1846 году в знак протеста по отношению к войне США против Мексики он демонстративно отказался платить налоги, а также выступал за гражданское неповиновение правительству. Его творчество и общественная деятельность оказали заметное влияние на мировоззрение Льва Толстого, Махатмы Ганди и Мартина Лютера Кинга.
Description : How can classroom teachers effectively differentiate learning and teaching programs to provide for the needs of every student in their class?

Practical tips, classroom snapshots, starter ideas and suggestions for programs show you the links between theory and practice so you can develop arts education experiences that are purposeful, stimulating and engaging for everyone.
Description : Hundreds of Bible based articles on many subjects ranging from timelines to 'come as you are but do not stay as you are.' It includes a non political view of 'A History Of The World.' My prime objective is for the reader to gain insight and understanding, a righteous perspective, of the world we live in, of the word of God, the Bible, and of God Himself. It is not necessarily a book of first steps or of fundamental beliefs but it is the word of God from personal observations guided by personal interests and the spirit of truth. I also added a few tidbits of advice on health that are not strictly Biblical but are based on personal observations and experience. You might also find the odd unattributed comment. May it all lead to greater knowledge and eventual salvation.

Description : We all live in a world where virtually every spiritual struggle is practically beyond our control. While some of us will die instantly without the opportunity to consciously sense death beforehand, others on the other hand will have the opportunity to know well in advance that death is around the corner. Regardless of which group you eventually find yourself, the truth is that every life on earth will one day without notice suddenly come to an end followed by a swift judgment with no excuses whatsoever. Do you know your final destination? When the disciples asked Jesus about the End of the Age, he said to them, “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Matthew 24:36. But in this book and for the first time in human history, Jesus discloses a unique breathtaking code in the Language of Heaven that reveals the only clue to the End of the Age. God’s spiritual principle of life for humanity on earth is, “All about Him” because He wants us to make Him the priority of our lives. But on judgment day, when you appear before Jesus Christ, that will all change because God’s spiritual principle of life for humanity will become, “All about you”. You either have Jesus Christ to enter God’s Paradise in Heaven or you don’t. What makes your life a supernatural success is where you effectively go from this world; not where you came from or what you did on earth at the expense of salvation. No eyes have ever seen, no ears have ever heard, and no human mind can fathom what God is about to unleash on earth through the second coming of His son. This book will give you all the supernatural Biblical spiritual details you need to prepare yourself for what the Bible described as “The Final Hour.” The time is at hand; Jesus loves you. This book is Volume 3 of “Face to Face Meetings with Jesus Christ”. Apart from him, we can do nothing.
Description : Alien Abduction - the very words suggest one of the greatest mysteries of our time. Who are these beings visiting us from the sky? Why are they here? What is their true relationship with us? The Cosmic Bridge addresses these perplexing and vital questions head-on.

I propose tests for such a theory and ultimately invite you to see an entirely new view of this enigma.

Description : Many mathematical statistics texts are heavily oriented toward a rigorous mathematical development of probability and statistics, without much attention paid to how statistics is actually used.. In contrast, Modern Mathematical Statistics with Applications, Second Edition strikes a balance between mathematical foundations and statistical practice. In keeping with the recommendation that every math student should study statistics and probability with an emphasis on data analysis, accomplished authors Jay Devore and Kenneth Berk make statistical concepts and methods clear and relevant through careful explanations and a broad range of applications involving real data. The main focus of the book is on presenting and illustrating methods of inferential statistics that are useful in research. It begins with a chapter on descriptive statistics that immediately exposes the reader to real data. The next six chapters develop the probability material that bridges the gap between descriptive and inferential statistics. Point estimation, inferences based on statistical intervals, and hypothesis testing are then introduced in the next three chapters. The remainder of the book explores the use of this methodology in a variety of more complex settings. This edition includes a plethora of new exercises, a number of which are similar to what would be encountered on the actuarial exams that cover probability and statistics. Representative applications include investigating whether the average tip percentage in a particular restaurant exceeds the standard 15%, considering whether the flavor and aroma of Champagne are affected by bottle temperature or type of pour, modeling the relationship between college graduation rate and average SAT score, and assessing the likelihood of O-ring failure in space shuttle launches as related to launch temperature.
