Caught between Kali's seductive wiles and the trusting adoration of Dr. O'Keefe's daughter, Poly, Adam finds himself enmeshed in a deadly power struggle between two groups of people, only one of which can have right on its side. As the danger escalates, Adam must make a decision that could affect the entire world—which side is he on?

We need a bold new brand of teacher leadership that will createopportunities for teachers to practice, share, and grow theirknowledge and expertise. This book is about "teacherpreneurs"—highly accomplishedclassroom teachers who blur the lines of distinction between thosewho teach in schools and those who lead them. Theseteacherpreneurs embody the concept that teachers canteach as well as lead the transformation of teaching andlearning. It’s about empowering expert teachers who can buoythe image of teaching and enforce standards among their ranks whileall along making sure that their colleagues as well as educationpolicymakers and the public know what works best for students. The book follows a small group of teacherpreneurs in their firstyear. We join their journey toward becoming teacherleaders whose work is not defined by administrative fiat, but bytheir knowledge of students and drive to influence policies thatallow them and their colleagues to teach more effectively. Theauthors trace the teacherpreneurs' steps—and theirown—in the effort to determine what it means to define andexecute the concept of "teacherpreneurism" in the face of toughdemands and resistant organizational structures.

Among the most fascinating animals in the world’s oceans are the more than 2,000 species of starfish. Called "Asteroids" by scientists who study them (after their taxonomic name, Asteroidea)—or sea stars in some parts of the world—starfish are easily recognized because of their star-like form. Starfish is a comprehensive volume devoted to the integrative and comparative biology and ecology of starfish. Written by the world's leading experts on starfish, the integrative section covers topics such as reproduction, developmental biology and ecology, larval ecology, and the ecological role of starfish as a group. The comparative section considers the biology and ecology of important species such as Acanthaster planci, Heliaster helianthoides, Asterias amurensis, and Pisaster ochraceus. Replete with detailed, scientifically accurate illustrations and the latest research findings, Starfish examines the important role of these invertebrates in the marine environment, a topic of great interest because of their impact on the food web. As major predators that are able to evert their stomach and wrap it around their prey, starfish can have a significant impact on commercial fisheries. Starfish are of interest not only to echinoderm specialists but also to marine biologists and invertebrate zoologists in general and, increasingly, to the medical community. A starfish’s ability to regenerate body parts is almost unequalled in the animal world, making them ideal models for basic science studies on the topic. Contributors: Charles D. Amsler, Bill J.

Robert A. Orr lives a fulfilling life which began with his birth in Argentina, his boyhood and teenage years in Brazil, and his college education and pilot's training in Canada. He served as a trainer and pilot for seventeen years in Brazil and returned to Canada where he and his wife Adriana now live. With a passion, burden and commitment to address and meet the blatant need for authentic leadership and management training, Robert continues to teach and mentor Christian leaders and "leaders-in-the-making" around the world. Three of his objectives are: 1.Provide this resource material in many languages, 2.Make this resource tool widely available to Christian workers, missions, ministries and the Church, 3.Assist in meeting the crying need for a new, strong, youthful, motivated, energetic and visionary authentic managerial leadership characterized by godly principles and learned managerial skills. What a massive amount of research has gone into this very fine guide. I wish I could have had a copy of something like this 30 years ago! I trust that it is getting into the hands of a large number of leaders and managers in our Christian community who can certainly use the guidance and direction you supply. I was most pleased to note the number of times you quoted me and my writings in the manual. I'm complemented! I was pleased to note that it is being translated into other languages for leaders in other cultures. I trust that God will continue to use you and this type of training material to His glory for many years to come. (Dr. Ted W. Engstrom, President Emeritus, World Vision)
