Tempering the Rose Dionne Lister 2016-05-01 A dark epic fantasy series, where one woman's thirst for revenge and struggle with her inner demons will put the entire world in jeopardy. The only thing twenty-one year old Adrastine wants is revenge against her depraved father-but when she tries to kill him, she is caught and thrown into a holy war for a god she doesn't believe in. But disaster is coming, and all Adrastine's problems will seem minor by comparison. Someone, or something, is draining the planet's lifeblood, killing the land and everything on it at an alarming rate. Jacob is a shelon, a man who can wield magic, and a spy dispatched by Queen Valtice to find The Rose of Nerine - the only one who can stop the rape of the land and save the people. But when Jacob finds Adrastine, he can't convince her that she is The Rose, let alone to leave her home and journey with him across the tempestuous sea to Nerine. Adrastine is drawn to Jacob, despite their differences. But that is a dangerous path, as he is an unwelcome distraction to her quest for revenge. And if she learns his secrets, it will cement her hatred of men forever, weakening powers she is only just learning she has, powers needed to save their world.

A Passion for Education - The Story of a Headteacher Christopher Goodwin BSc (Hons) NPQH 2014-10-25 If you want to know how to run an Outstanding School then read this! This book is a memoir of an outspoken maverick Headteacher who did it his way. He was a Rock 'n' Roll Head who fought for his philosophy and lead his school to three consecutive Outstanding Ofsted inspections. He had a passion and a vision that permeated the fabric of the school and transformed it into one of the best schools in the country. He was a rebel who did not kow-tow to Ofsted or the Local Authority, who spent the early years of his teaching fighting for his beliefs in a traditional, hidebound school that was floundering and found himself taking on the entire hierarchy of the school. He believed in valuing all his students, caring for them and putting that above all else. He believed in equality, freedom, and fairness and refused to allow any system into his school that was contrary to those principles. He believed racism, sexism, bullying, violence and xenophobia were evils that should be opposed before all else. In the course of standing up for his beliefs he led the school on a journey that culminated in three 'Outstanding Ofsted's', Attendance rates that were the best in County, an exam success rate that built year upon year to great heights, and a behaviour record that was unsurpassed. Every single area of his responsibilities over the whole thirty six years of his teaching was deemed by inspection to be outstanding, excellent or exemplary. This is the story of how he created that success.

Targeted Learning Mark J. van der Laan 2011-06-17 The statistics profession is at a unique point in history. The need for valid statistical tools is greater than ever; data sets are massive, often measuring hundreds of thousands of measurements for a single subject. The field is ready to move towards clear objective benchmarks under which tools can be evaluated. Targeted learning allows (1) the full generalization and utilization of cross-validation as an estimator selection tool so that the subjective choices made by humans are now made by the machine, and (2) targeting the fitting of the probability distribution of the data toward the target parameter representing the scientific question of interest. This book is aimed at both statisticians and applied researchers interested in causal inference and general effect estimation for observational and experimental data. Part I is an accessible introduction to super learning and the targeted maximum likelihood estimator, including related concepts necessary to understand and apply these methods. Parts II-IX handle complex data structures and topics applied researchers will immediately recognize from their own research, including time-to-event outcomes, direct and indirect effects, positivity violations, case-control studies, censored data, longitudinal data, and genomic studies.
The Really Useful #edtechbook David Hopkins 2015-01-24 Technology has invaded our working and recreational lives to an extent that few envisaged 20 or 30 years ago. We'd be fools to avoid the developments in personal, mobile, and wearable technology. Even if we tried we'd still have to deal with other developments and distractions in classroom and learning technology like smart boards, blogs, video, games, students-led learning, virtual learning environments, social media, etc. More than this, however, is how the advances in technology, the economic and physical miniaturisation of computing devices, have impacted education: the students, the teachers, the classrooms, the spaces, the connections, the aspirations, etc. 'The Really Useful #EdTechBook' is about experiences, reflections, hopes, passions, expectations, and professionalism of those working with, in, and for the use of technology in education. Not only is it an insight into how, or why, we work with these technologies, it's about how we as learning professionals got to where we are and how we go forward with our own development. In this book respected individuals from different education sectors write about many aspects of learning technology; from Higher Education (Sue Beckingham, Peter Reed, Dr David Walker, Sheila MacNeil, Terese Bird, Wayne Barry, Inge de Waard, and Sharon Flynn), Further Education (Rachel Challen), to Museums (Zak Mensah), workplace learning (Julian Stodd, Julie Wedgwood, and Lesley Price) and primary schools / early years education (Mike McSharry). With a foreword written by Catherine Cronin, from the National University Ireland, Galway, the breadth and depth of the experiences here are second to none. The knowledge these leading learning practitioners, researchers, and professionals, share, under the same cover, is a unique opportunity for you to read about the variety of approaches to learning technology, the different perspectives on the same technology, and how technology is impacting our culture and learning infrastructure, from early-age classrooms to leading research Universities and from museums and workplace learning providers. It is about our passion for our work and our desire to make our work better through our own learning and development. Contributory authors: Catherine Cronin: Foreword David Hopkins: Introduction Wayne Barry: “…and what do you do?”: Can we explain the unexplainable? Zak Mensah: “Why do we do what we do?” Peter Reed: “The structure and roles of Learning Technologists within Higher Education Institutions” Rachel Challen: “Learning Technologists as agents of change? Blending policy and creativity” Julie Wedgwood: “Developing the skills and knowledge of a Learning Technologist” Dr David Walker and Sheila MacNeill: “Learning Technologist as Digital Pedagogue” Lesley Price: “Times they are a changing …or not?” Sue Beckingham: “The Blended Professional: Jack-of-all-Trades and Master of Some?” Julian Stodd: “How gadgets help us learn” Terese Bird: “Students Leading the Way in Mobile Learning Innovation” Inge de Waard: “Tech Dandy, or the Art of Leisure Learning” Sharon Flynn: “Learning Technologists: changing the culture or preaching to the converted?” Mike McSharry: “This is your five-minute warning!”
INDICATIVE MOOD Marianne Yayane Verbuyt 2016-12-22 105 Essential or Fundamental French Verbs is a bilingual French-English manual which presents an innovative learning method for those who wish to master the French indicative mood. By classing the verbs in terms of frequency of use, both oral and written, the teacher or student is able to progress logically and at his own rhythm. In order to help English speakers learn the correct French pronunciation, a simple color coding has been applied to signal complex sounds and to indicate silent letters. To reinforce a cumulative learning experience, each new element is subsequently recapitulated through diagrams and tables that show how it is used in the different tenses, as well as how these are formed. MARIANNE YAYANE VERBUYT is a teacher and educator with a passion for transmitting knowledge. After more than two decades working within some of the most renowned scholoastic institutions in Europe and the United States, as a co-author of the book, "Apprendre malgre le handicap ou la maladie" and as the primary educator highlighted in the acclaimed documentary, "Sur la route couleur de sable," Marianne decided to apply all of her pedagogical experience to understanding the mechanisms of learning. Integrating feedback from her many students, she figured out a coherent and innovative way to communicate the complexities of the French language to a non-Frenchspeaker. The simple and graphic aesthetic of this manual is intended to transform the student into a powerful particiapnt in his or her own learning process."

Right before Memorial Day 2009, I met with my business coach Joe Stumpf. After 20 years as a commissioned loan officer, I had just lived through possibly the worst year ever in the business. My previous company had collapsed in the mortgage meltdown of 2008. During the previous 12 months my assistant had earned more money than I had. About 50% of the people in my industry were either out of work or actively looking for jobs in other areas of business. Things looked bleak, and there was no fun left. Work had become a painful grind with very little financial reward to show for all the time spent.I shared my total burn out in the business of 20 years with my coach. Frustrated by what my life had become, it became clear that something had to give. Either I had to change jobs, or change my attitude. Maybe both! I promised to get up at 5:00 AM every day, meditate and journal, and focus on bringing passion back into every aspect of my life, my work, my family and my personal growth. Instead of going to work every day and having a pity party, I have decided to have a passion party.These writings (a sample of the 475+ entries from the website http://passionparty09.blogspot.com) are the outgrowth of that commitment. I hope they inspire you to find your passion, and that you enjoy reading them as much as I did writing them."-George Kahn“When a person integrates the practical and the artistic, the material and the spiritual, I listen. The world has more than enough disconnection; I am inspired by people who put things together. Real passion flows from these poems, the product of a mind and heart in synch.”-Shmuel Klatzkin, Rabbi

Into the Team Rob Damon 2015-10-27 To honor his father, young footballer Todd Mackerson commits to his goal of playing for a professional team. When, at the age of 20, he is offered a place to train with one of England's biggest clubs, he leaves home convinced his dream is within reach. Being warned by his new team mates of the tough rules and hard training routines, Todd is undeterred. But when he discovers that the player's way of bonding borders on the sexual, and that he must learn to accept the erotic affections that connect the team together, he wonders how far he can go for his dream. But, after experiencing the care and attention men can give to each other, Todd feels awakened. Learning that each player has a special "partner" on the team, who they play and bond with as intimately as lovers, Todd becomes fascinated with the idea. And when he develops feelings for one player in particular, he discovers how a stronger kind of romance - that between two men - can be pure and powerful enough to bring magic and success on the pitch.
Star Wars Origami 2012-08-07 Kids love origami—and what could be cooler than transforming a piece of paper into Boba Fett, Princess Leia, Yoda, or R2-D2? And not just any paper, but custom-designed paper illustrated with art from the movies. Star Wars® Origami marries the fun of paper folding with the obsession of Star Wars. Like The Joy of Origami and Origami on the Go, this book puts an original spin on an ancient art. And like Star Wars® Scanimation® and Star Wars® Fandex®, it’s a fresh take on Star Wars mania. Chris Alexander is a master folder and founder of the popular website StarWarsOrigami.com, and here are 36 models, clearly explained, that range in difficulty from Youngling (easy) to Padawan (medium), Jedi Knight (difficult), and Jedi Master (tricky!). A front section introduces origami definitions and basic folds. Bound in the back is the book’s unique folding paper, two sheets for each figure. Illustrated with original art, it makes each creation—the essential lightsabers, the Death Star, and much more—true to the movies. Star Wars Origami includes a foreword by Tom Angleberger, author of the New York Times bestsellers The Strange Case of Origami Yoda and Darth Paper Strikes Back, and is scheduled to be published at the same time as Angleberger’s upcoming book, The Secret of the Fortune Wookiee.

Her books offer a nice exposition of the mathematical elements, but you're not being hit over the head with math lessons. You learn things without even realizing that you have." –Dr. Robert J. Lang "Meenakshi Mukerji is one of today's masters of modular origami, designs comprised of multiple pieces of paper. She also brings her ingenuity and creativity to designs made from a single piece of paper.
