The Da Vinci Code: Facts and Fallacies at the 9...

The 92nd Street Y has gathered scholars and authorities to discuss the questions and issues raised in Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. What are the implications for religion and private faith when talk about God moves into pop culture, and popular entertainment becomes a mode of education? Never has this topic been more relevant than when a book like The Da Vinci Code is treated as fact rather than fiction. Panelists also touch on the early Christian church, the role of women in the early church, the objectives of organizations like Opus Dei and how the Christian church has changed through the ages. Dan Burstein is an award-winning journalist, author, and venture capitalist, and is the editor of Secrets of the Code. Bart D. Ehrman chairs the Department of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and wrote The Truth Behind The Da Vinci Code: A Historian Reveals What We Really Know About Jesus, Mary Magdalene, and Constantine. Linda Ruf is a spokeswoman for the Catholic group Opus Dei and has been a member of the group for more than 20 years. Phyllis Tickle is the former religion editor at Publishers Weekly, the author of more than two dozen books and an expert in the field of religion and popular culture. This event took place on February 27, 2005. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Phyllis Tickle. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/sp/nsty/000025/sp_nsty_000025_sample.mp3.

You define life or it defines you. In Shawn Speakman’s case, it was both. Lacking health insurance and diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2011, Shawn quickly accrued a massive medical debt that he did not have the ability to pay. That’s when New York Times best-selling author Terry Brooks offered to donate a short story that Shawn could sell to help alleviate those bills—and suggested he ask the same of his other writer friends. Unfettered is the result: An anthology built in order to relieve that debt, featuring short stories by some of the best fantasy writers in the genre. Twenty-three tales comprise this incredible collection, and as the title suggests, the writers were free to contribute whatever they wished. Here is the table of contents: Foreword by Patrick Rothfuss Introduction: On Becoming Unfettered Imaginary Friends by Terry Brooks How Old Holly Came to Be by Patrick Rothfuss The Old Scale Game by Tad Williams Game of Chance by Carrie Vaughn The Martyr of the Roses by Jacqueline Carey Mudboy by Peter V. Brett The Sound of Broken Absolutes by Peter Orullian The Coach with Big Teeth by R. A. Salvatore Keeper of Memory by Todd Lockwood Heaven in a Wild Flower by Blake Charlton Dogs by Daniel Abraham The Chapel Perilous by Kevin Hearne Select Mode by Mark Lawrence All the Girls Love Michael Stein by David Anthony Durham Strange Rain by Jennifer Bosworth Nocturne by Robert V. S. Redick Unbowed by Eldon Thompson In Favour with Their Stars by Naomi Novik River of Souls by Robert Jordan & Brandon Sanderson The Jester by Michael J. Sullivan The Duel by Lev Grossman Walker and the Shade of Allanon by Terry Brooks The Unfettered Knight by Shawn SpeakmanWith the help of stalwart friends 1. Language: English.

Educational Research - the Ethics and Aesthetic...

Statistics are everywhere. Their power and their undoubted efficacy in many areas have given rise to faith in measurement and metrics. More of them will tell us all that we need to know. Their use carries with it a number of presuppositions: that reality can be satisfactorily represented and that it can be controlled or the risks managed. The papers in this book interpret the ethics and aesthetics of statistics in terms of representation, visualisation and accessibility, focus on the appeal of ‘simplicity’, of technical languages, numbers, diagrams and pictures, and pay attention to their connection with action plans. The book explores what has made educational researchers dependent on statistics, and deals with their use in areas such as the prevalence of maltreatment of children, European citizenship, well-being and happiness, illegal migrants, and university expansion. There is discussion of how the quest for more and better statistics finds its voice in policy initiatives that become slogans, and how public opinion polls are used to rationalise political decision-making. Can a more limited and modest use be made of statistics which does not deflect attention away from education’s core business and which does not destroy the local practical knowledge that on which good education is based?‘Smeyers and Depaepe continue to bring together a significant international group of educational philosophers and historians on topics of importance to researchers. This fifth volume in their series takes up the ‘gold standard’ use of statistics in case studies not contributed elsewhere. I highly recommend this text to counter a current over-emphasis on technique in research methodology. Use of statistics remains but herein under new, insightful conceptualizations.’Lynda Stone, Philosophy of Education, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA‘Once again, Depaepe and Smeyers succeeded in bringing together distinguished international and cross-disciplinary scholars exploring very timely and critical issues in current educational research. This is a groundbreaking book on a theme that can’t be ignored by educational researchers and those interested in a better understanding of the culture of science and science as culture. Moreover, the present book instigates to study history of educationalresearch, a limited but developing field, and invites reflection to those who are sometimes too reliant on number crunching as a mode of interpretation and rather credulous in the acceptance of institutional records.Frank Simon, Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences, Ghent University, Belgium
