While there have been many claims of the benefits of teas through the years, and while there is nearly universal agreement that drinking tea can benefit health, there is still a concern over whether the lab-generated results are representative of real-life benefit, what the risk of toxicity might be, and what the effective-level thresholds are for various purposes. Clearly there are still questions about the efficacy and use of tea for health benefit. This book presents a comprehensive look at the compounds in black, green, and white teas, their reported benefits (or toxicity risks) and also explores them on a health-condition specific level, providing researchers and academics with a single-volume resource to help in identifying potential treatment uses. No other book on the market considers all the varieties of teas in one volume, or takes the disease-focused approach that will assist in directing further research and studies. Interdisciplinary presentation of material assists in identifying potential cross-over benefits and similarities between tea sources and diseases Assists in identifying therapeutic benefits for new product development Includes coverage and comparison of the most important types of tea - green, black and white

The culmination of nearly three decades of research, Collective Trust offers new insight and practical knowledge on the social construction of trust for school improvement. The authors argue that "collective trust" is not merely an average trust score for a group, but rather an independent concept with distinctive origins and consequences. The book demonstrates that schools are organizations that require environments characterized by high levels of collective trust to be effective. Including an historical overview, an exhaustive review of the empirical research, and implications for school reform policy and leadership, this is the most comprehensive resource to date on the issue of collective trust.

High school journalists share the same objectives as professional reporters--finding the story, writing the story, and packaging the story so that it appeals to an audience. Understanding how to best accomplish these objectives is key to the student on the newspaper, yearbook or Web site staff, but the fundamental art of storytelling and story presentation are not always at the center of high school journalism classes. Student journalists must first understand that storytelling, at its most basic level, is about people, and that understanding the audience is essential in deciding how to present the story. This handbook for high school journalists and teachers offers practical tips for all elements of school journalism. The author covers the essential components that students must understand: information gathering, writing, standard and alternative coverage and packaging. Students will find valuable information about identifying news, interviewing, research, narrative writing style, editing, visual presentation and layout. The book also covers the legal rights of student journalists, objective vs. opinion writing, staff planning and organization and Web-based journalism. Each chapter includes study guides for practical applications of the concepts discussed.

The landmark 1954 Supreme Court ruling, Brown v. Board of Education, brought the promise of integration to Little Rock, Arkansas, but it was hard-won for the nine black teenagers chosen to integrate Central High School in 1957. They ran a gauntlet flanked by a rampaging mob and a heavily armed Arkansas National Guard—opposition so intense that soldiers from the elite 101st Airborne Division were called in to restore order. For Melba Beals and her eight friends those steps marked their transformation into reluctant warriors—on a battlefield that helped shape the civil rights movement. Warriors Don't Cry, drawn from Melba Beals's personal diaries, is a riveting true account of her junior year at Central High—one filled with telephone threats, brigades of attacking mothers, rogue police, fireball and acid-throwing attacks, economic blackmail, and, finally, a price upon Melba's head. With the help of her English-teacher mother; her eight fellow warriors; and her gun-toting, Bible-and-Shakespeare-loving grandmother, Melba survived. And, incredibly, from a year that would hold no sweet-sixteen parties or school plays, Melba Beals emerged with indestructible faith, courage, strength, and hope.

Horace Mann Bond (1904-1972) was a scholar and a college administrator who focused on higher education for African Americans. Negro Education in Alabama is derived from his dissertation, which received the Susan Colver Rosenberger Prize in 1937 and was published in 1939. “Horace Mann Bond,” according to Sourthen Changes, “lived, worked, and wrote in both the South and the North during the reign of Jim Crow, and through the early years of its aftermath….Bond was a bright, gifted, young scholar, on track to become a serious academic,” when his career shifted to educational administration. The promise of his career as a scholar is exemplified in Negro Education in Alabama, which has a remarkably contemporary ring.

“Walk-On U” illustrates the incredible phenomenon of the “College Walk-on.” Depicting the ugly, the bad, and the good, this book is about survival, education, mental toughness, and character building of student athletes who, without athletic scholarships and true to their talents, walk-on the team in search of a dream. The seldom discussed realities of true Walk-On experiences will cover everything from heart, determination, patience, and sheer will of these hope-to-be student athletes as they attempt to conquer massive amounts of adversity and abuse while they willfully pay to practice. This book is about achieving a humbling internal victory, (not seen by the fans), both on and off the field, providing building blocks for future success in life after sports. Interviews across the country from former Walk-Ons, scholarship players, coaches, equipment managers, and trainers will illustrate and substantiate the actual culture of drudgery walk-ons endure. Because of harsh treatment and few rewards, most successful Walk-Ons come away from their experience with more knowledge than their counterpart scholarship athletes and better prepared to face the oncoming world. This book will show that a Walk-On need not ultimately receive a scholarship or play on Saturdays in front of 80,000 people to earn respect or be considered a success story. The never-ending desire to get up after being knocked down and keep coming back over and over again against all odds and reasonable expectations of hope give Walk-Ons the power to conquer their fears and prepare for success in their daily lives, relationships and vocations. This educational and enlightening book is for any of the 8 million high school athletes who are considering walking-on for a college sports team should their dreams of earning an athletic scholarship not come true. After reading these stories, some will conclude that this is not an experience they wish to bear. Others will see an incredible opportunity and challenge, and grasp the chance. Being armed with the information in this book will help these athletes in making sound judgments which can ultimately affect the choice of school, career path, and life direction. The shocking, appalling, and outrageous statements revealed from Walk-Ons of yesterday will provide for a fascinating read that will leave adult sports fans with amazing accounts of heartbreaking testimony and hilarious recounts of unbelievable and mind-blowing stories. Finally, the book will challenge the NCAA members to overturn outdated and unjust rules governing Walk-Ons; from training table to transferring schools. The lowly, disrespected walk-on becomes a leader in the making fueled by passion with purpose. The daily despair becomes the stimulant to conquer their tested will through insurmountable odds forcing them to achieve their greatest potential. It is when their best is brought forth that perceptions change, respect sets in, and opportunities arise. This Walk-On journey becomes a life changing transformation; these under the radar, high-flying overachievers are awarded coveted membership into Walk-On University. No matter the college or university across the country, there is bound to be a satellite campus secretly called, “Walk-On U.” “Walk-On U” is the brand that will feature and focus on the underdog players in college sports, primarily football. Through an ongoing series of books, web site, TV documentaries, annual awards banquet, and screenplay, the Walk-On will be exposed, showcased, publicized and celebrated. Author Tim Lavin was a “Walk-On” at the University of Southern California in 1988 against the advice of most. He literally fought his way into playing time and earned a scholarship. Following graduation, he received two NFL tryouts. His emotional journey has inspired him to create an educational, informational, and entertaining book, and a new brand, “Walk-On U.”
