Gene McGuire received a life sentence for a murder he did not commit. Serving that life sentence ... he found life. No one would have imagined such an outcome when, as a 17-year-old, he was convicted of Second Degree Murder and heard the judge speak those ominous words, ..".for the rest of your natural life." In Unshackled, McGuire takes readers from the scene of the crime--a lakeside tavern in sleepy little Lake Winola, Pennsylvania through 34 years, nine months, and 15 days of incarceration, all while serving a life sentence... for a murder he didn't commit. Glimpses of light penetrate a world of abject darkness, making Unshackled a most surprising, engaging and liberating read-a powerful and moving story of freedom, forgiveness and moving forward in life.

At only eight years old Janie Burkett was introduced to a lifelong enemy named insecurity that would drag her down many a dark path and constantly stand between her and true happiness. Janie's battles with insecurity started with her weight and fear of abandonment, but escalated into so much more. By fifteen she found herself slipping into a lifestyle that promised only despair, turning her back on God and relying on alcohol and men to fill a growing void. Her life went from bad to worse and Janie soon found herself a full-blown addict with a life-threatening eating disorder by age twenty. Janie continued on in a life of darkness, but had no idea how far she had slipped until finally her deeds caught up with her on December 18, 2008, when she stood before a judge and received news that would alter her life forever.

Christianity Unshackled follows the development of Western thought over the last 2,000 years, showing how Christianity has grown up side-by-side with Western philosophy. Great errors have resulted from that entanglement, primarily because Western philosophy has its roots in the ancient Greek worldview. After untangling that mess, Harold R. Eberle rebuilds a Christian worldview, laying biblical truths on the ancient Hebrew foundation. This yields a worldview which is liberating, answers the questions of today's society and stands up against the most fearsome attacks from Christianity's modern opponents.

Why in the world are we paying for all this "basic" research? The answer to this question becomes clear in this romp through the "seemingly useless" world of pure science, where one thing leads to another in ways that result in major scientific advancements. With a novelistic style, C. Renée James reveals how obscure studies of natural phenomena—including curved space-time, poisonous cone snails, exploding black holes, and the precise chemical makeup of the sun—led unexpectedly to WiFi, GPS, genetic sequencing, pain medications, and cancer treatments. Science Unshackled brings both science and scientists to life and shows how simple curiosity can result in life-changing breakthroughs. Scientists engaged in basic research, funded in large part by governments around the globe and throughout the centuries, never know when exploring small questions will have big impacts. But, by following the scientific method, disciplined inquiry can lead to wondrous and practical discoveries that benefit all of us in the end. The next time someone asks you why "the government" wastes its money on weird research, recall the intriguing stories James has told and tell them the answer.

Fashion denotes artistic dressing, and it is a product of the sewing trade considered important to the public. However, if the general perception of the sewing trade had been viewed with a little more respect, the trade wouldn't be on its deathbed today. The public must understand that manufacturers alone can't meet their thirst for elegance; there must be technicians outside the manufacturing arena to service the clothes before they wear them. No matter what, if you have acquired some social and fashion values, at some point during the life of a garment, you must consult with a garment technician. But people are unwilling to respond to the importance of the trade and compensate those who help them look their best in life. Western dressers will feel the disappearance of bespoke (custom) tailors and dressmakers, who were known for their exceptional talents, and especially now with the increased demand for fashionable clothes. The public must read and learn about fashion and clothes not just look at photos of glamorous people; or read articles usually written by good writers but without substance, but read articles to acquire knowledge about clothes and properly wearing those that depict fashion and artistic dressing. This book provides the knowledge and was written for that purpose. This perception stigmatized the sewing trade as the "trade of the dropouts," and thus caused the younger generation to turn away from learning the trade. With the same breath, they can restore the artistic talent through a concerted effort of the authorities, the fashion schools and the manufacturers, before the art disappears completely. Since both men and women have acquired a desire and taste for fashion dressing, it is a sign that indicates a willingness to respect the trade and to place it in its proper perspective in order to protect the quality of fashion. What would we do without clothes? It's a fact that no one ever leaves home unless he or she is dressed with good taste. But clothes by themselves are no more than just pieces of fabric sewn together, unless a person wears them as a garment properly. It is important that you respect clothes, because they make a statement on your behalf; they give you confidence at work, among your friends, in social settings, in public; and above all, they play the most important part in your life after food. Clothes are the epitome of fashion and are the product of the sewing industry, which must be preserved.

A remarkable, first-ever collection of 35 essays on India's future, by a diverse set of authors - activists, researchers, media practitioners, those who have influenced policies and those working at the grassroots. This book brings together scenarios of an India that is politically and socially egalitarian, radically democratic, economically sustainable and equitable, and socio-culturally diverse and harmonious. Alternative Futures: India Unshackled covers a wide range of issues, organized under four sections. It explores ecological futures including environmental governance, biodiversity conservation, water and energy. Next, it envisions political futures including those of democracy and power, law, ideology, and India's role in the globe. A number of essays then look at economic futures, including agriculture, pastoralism, industry, crafts, villages and cities, localization, markets, transportation and technology. Finally, it explores socio-cultural futures, encompassing languages, learning and education, knowledge, health, sexuality and gender, and marginalized sections like dalits, adivasis, and religious minorities. Introductory and concluding essays tie these diverse visions together. Most essays include both futuristic scenarios and present initiatives that demonstrate the possibility of such futures. At a time when India faces increasing polarization along parochial, physical and mental boundaries, these essays provide a breath of fresh air and hope in the grounded possibilities for an alternative, decentralized, eco-culturally centred future. The essays range from the dreamy-eyed to the hard-headed, from the provocative to the gently persuasive. This book would hold appeal for a wide range of readers - youth, academics, development professionals, policy makers, government officials, activists, people's movements, media persons, business persons - concerned about the current state of India and the world, and willing to engage critically in the collective search for a better future.

Harnessing conceptual inspiration through the work of Harriet Tubman and Queen Nanny the Maroon of Jamaica, this book explores the historical and contemporary role that education has – and can continually play as an instrument of personal and group liberation. The book discusses the early formations of the Transatlantic Slave Trade, the enslavement of native populations, and the subsequent development of the Underground Railroad and Maroon societies in the Caribbean and Americas as systems of liberation. It investigates the development and maintenance of racial, gendered and class stratifi cation, and provides a personal path to freedom as a context for a broader discussion on using education as a mechanism for dismantling the effects of colonization, miseducation, and social-psychological domination in schools and society. As a contemporary issue, it presents an in depth analysis of the Tucson Unifi ed School District in Arizona, and the controversy surrounding its ethnic studies program as an example of one of the contested sites of curriculum development and student liberation. Additionally, it discusses high performing charter schools as an alternative model of education, which may help to provide a systematic way of unshackling institutional barriers and oppression. Ultimately, this book acknowledges that today the road tofreedom is still one we must all travel as: miseducation, school failure, school dropout, unemployment/underemployment, poverty, neighborhood violence, incarceration, and a growing prison industrial complex are all reminders of the work that still must be accomplished. Like those who historically sacrifi ced their lives to gain freedom and an education, today, with the lingering effects of institutionalized systems of domination, education must continue to be an instrument of social mobility and liberation, if indeed, we are to make schools and society more humane and inclusive towards those who are still waiting to be unshackled. The book presents implications regarding the treaties on education for freedom as a school reform and public policy topic.
