Foreword by Steve Harvey and afterword by David Foster The Grammy-winning founder of the legendary pop/R&B/soul/funk/disco group tells his story and charts the rise of his legendary band in this sincere memoir that captures the heart and soul of an artist whose groundbreaking sound continues to influence music today. With its dynamic horns, contrasting vocals, and vivid stage shows, Earth, Wind & Fire was one of the most popular acts of the late twentieth century—the band “that changed the sound of black pop” (Rolling Stone)—and its music continues to inspire modern artists including Usher, Jay-Z, Cee-Lo Green, and Outkast. At last, the band’s founder, Maurice White, shares the story of his success. Now in his seventies, White reflects on the great blessings music has brought to his life and the struggles he’s endured: his mother leaving him behind in Memphis when he was four; learning to play the drums with Booker T. Jones; moving to Chicago at eighteen and later Los Angeles after leaving the Ramsey Lewis Trio; forming EWF, only to have the original group fall apart; working with Barbra Streisand and Neil Diamond; his diagnosis of Parkinson’s; and his final public performance with the group at the 2006 Grammy Awards. Through it all, White credits his faith for his amazing success and guidance in overcoming his many challenges. Keep Your Head to the Sky is an intimate, moving, and beautiful memoir from a man whose creativity and determination carried him to great success, and whose faith enabled him to savor every moment.

But while its charismatic founder, Maurice White, and Philip Bailey, one of popular music’s greatest voices, are remarkable musical talents, their relentless work ethic exhausted and emotionally gutted the group.

Today's world demands an integrated attitude and Vision toward al of life; - an approach embraced and enhanced by the contributors to Earth, Wind, and Fire. In this scholarly and passionate work members of the Feminist Hermeneutics Task Force of the Catholic Biblical Association orchestrate an approach to understanding a feminist model of creation that is faithful to biblical tradition and celebrates the rich diversity of al creation. Inviting conversation between Bible and theology, feminist scholars and theologians, the contributing writers explore themes such as the significance of embodiment, the integrity of creation, the interconnectedness of humanity with other creatures, the evolutionary nature of creation, and integral connections between creation and salvation, ecojustice and human liberation. Both detailed and holistic, Earth, Wind, and Fire is a compelling, insightful, and reader-friendly approach to the creative artistry of God.

Rhynchospora knieskernii J. Carey (Cyperaceae) is a federally-threatened sedge that is endemic to the New Jersey Pine Barrens, a fire-dependent and nutrient-poor ecosystem. Although global rare, little is known about its nutrient requirements, dispersal mechanisms, and population dynamics. Autecological studies that elucidate environmental requirements are essential for effective rare plant conservation. Depending on availability, R. knieksernii preferentially allocated nitrogen to either reproduction or storage. When plant N concentration was elevated more N was allocated to storage than to reproduction. Achene mass and volume were less when plant N concentration was higher. Plants in habitat that had been prescribed burned had the greatest N concentrations. In contrast, there was no difference in phosphorus allocation to either reproduction or storage regardless of the level of soil P. Plants in habitat where the canopy was opened following a prescribed burned were taller and produced more achenes. Although there was no difference in the nutrient allocation strategy between R. knieskernii and associate plants, R. knieskernii was the dominant species in habitat that was prescribed burned either the current or previous year. Plant dispersal is often facilitated by specific plant structures. Although the bristles on R. knieskernii achenes suggest adhesive dispersal, I found that achenes were also dispersed by wind and water. Simulated dispersal kernels, using known or estimated dispersal distances, suggested that deer were the vector for the longest -distance dispersal with water being a more effective dispersal vector than wind.Fire suppression and hydrological alteration pose the greatest threat to the stability of R. knieskernii populations. Potential changes to nutrient cycling as a result of climate change may also lead to population declines, particularly if increased precipitation leads to changes in phosphorus availability through increased immobilization. In the absence of wildfire, frequent prescribed burns that mimic natural fire return intervals are recommended for the maintenance of R. knieskernii populations.
