One study after another shows American students ranking behind their international counterparts in the STEM fields—science, technology, engineering, and math. Businesspeople and cultural critics such as Bill Gates warn that this alarming situation puts the United States at a serious disadvantage in the high-tech global marketplace of the twenty-first century, and President Obama places improvement in these areas at the center of his educational reform. What can be done to reverse this poor performance and to unleash America’s wasted talent? David E. Drew has good news—and the tools America needs to keep competitive. Drawing on both academic literature and his own rich experience, Drew identifies proven strategies for reforming America’s schools, colleges, and universities, and his comprehensive review of STEM education in the United States offers a positive blueprint for the future. These research-based strategies include creative and successful methods for building strong programs in science and mathematics education and show how the achievement gap between majority and minority students can be closed. A crucial measure, he argues, is recruiting, educating, supporting, and respecting America’s teachers. Accessible, engaging, and hard hitting, STEM the Tide is a clarion call to policymakers, administrators, educators, and everyone else concerned about students’ participation in the STEM fields and America’s competitive global position.

The European zebra mussel in the Great Lakes, a toxic Japanese dinoflagellate transferred to Australia--such biologically and economically harmful stowaways have made it imperative to achieve better management of ballast water in ocean-going vessels. Stemming the Tide examines the introduction of nonindigenous species through ballast water discharge. Ballast is any solid or liquid that is taken aboard ship to achieve more controlled and safer operation. This expert volume Assesses current national and international approaches to the problem and makes recommendations for U.S. government agencies, the U.S. maritime industry, and the member states of the International Maritime Organization. Appraises technologies for controlling the transfer of organisms--biocides, filtration, heat treatment, and others --with a view toward developing the most promising methods for shipboard demonstration. Evaluates methods for monitoring the effectiveness of ballast water management in removing unwanted organisms. The book addresses the constraints inherent in ballast water management, notably shipboard ballast treatment and monitoring. Also, the committee outlines efforts to set an acceptable level of risk for species introduction using the techniques of risk analysis. Stemming the Tide will be important to all stakeholders in the issue of unwanted species introduction through ballast discharge: policymakers, port authorities, shippers, ship operators, suppliers to the maritime industry, marine biologists, marine engineers, and environmentalists.

"Riding the Tide of Change" is a unique book as it covers both, the metaphysical and physical aspects of preparing for the events often referred to as Earth changes. Unlike many of the metaphysically oriented books on Earth changes, "Riding the Tide of Change" avoids grand theories, sensationalism, or far-out speculations. And unlike most of the disaster preparedness and survival books, it explains clearly that hoarding of food and survival gear is a futile endeavor if you neglect the inner work of opening, healing, and releasing. Based on a view of humans as, above all, spiritual beings the author explains clearly and succinctly the metaphysical laws underlying the process of manifestation and healing. He outlines the role we play as co-creators and why the healing of ourselves and the planet are intricately interwoven. Dr. Luthke explains the stages of the transformation process and gives the reader tools to advance the inner work needed in preparation for a New Millennium. For those who wish to take practical steps towards preparing for the Earth changes, the appendix offers a comprehensive list of preparedness items and where to get them. Accessible, yet profound, "Riding the Tide of Change" offers a message of hope and empowerment!
