There’s a sweltering heat wave outside. Nearly a year after Pittsburgh psychologist and trauma expert Daniel Rinaldi helped unravel a baffling murder, he finds himself drawn into another case.
When a daring bank robbery goes horribly wrong, resulting in the deaths of all the hostages except one, Rinaldi is called in to question Treva Williams, the traumatized young woman who survived. However, what seemed a simple robbery soon explodes into a series of events that plunge the investigating officers, Sgt. Harry Polk and Detective Eleanor Lowrey—as well as Rinaldi himself—into a vortex of mistaken identity and kidnapping.
Social entrepreneurs are “changemakers”–people who want to make the world a better place by problem-solving tough issues. They are socially conscious, forward-thinking, and strive for systemic solutions to social issues they champion. Developing Lifelong Changemakers is a colorful “white paper” introducing the Lifelong Changemaker Framework intended for all educators supporting changemakers to champion the world and to lay the groundwork for future conversations. This work is based on a 2009 doctoral study on Ashoka Fellows from the education and workforce sector, entitled 21st-Century Social Change Makers and Next-Generation Social Entrepreneurs.
“It’s an unforgettable sight: innovation expert Maureen Clemmons can lift and ‘fly’ massive stones, some of them weighing 16 tons, with little more than a steady wind and a good kite. But did the ancient Egyptians do the same thing when hoisting immense pyramid stones? Egyptologists say no. Clemmons, backed by a decade of field tests and a Caltech aeronautics team, isn’t so certain—especially when the Egyptologists make it clear they are unwilling to consider evidence from anyone outside their insular field. Buoyed by a tremendous groundswell of grassroots support, Clemmons’ stunning, block-heaving experiments generate national news coverage, a History Channel documentary, and a mention in engineering textbooks. Audiences from NASA, the American Institute of Architects, and a multitude of universities gather to hear her compelling presentations. In the span of just a few short years, she successfully advances a simple ‘Eureka!’ moment in her California backyard to the halls of academia, and eventually to Egypt’s Giza Plateau, site of the actual pyramids. She also proves an important point: that you don’t need a degree, just an inspired idea and some passion, to be a good scientist.” Written by Time science contributor Daniel Cray.
From the publishers of the popular Strength Deployment Inventory, Have a Nice Conflict follows one man’s fight to rescue his sinking career. Sales manager John Doyle would consider his career a success—he’s his company’s top revenue driver, and his take-charge attitude gets the job done. However, when he is passed over for promotion—again—after losing two direct reports, who cite his abrasive style as their reason for leaving, John is forced to reassess how he approaches his relationships. With the help of Mac, an expert in the art of Relationship Awareness Theory, John learns the three stages of conflict, and how he reacts in each.

Clinical training is challenging for supervisees, many of whom are unsure how to navigate the supervisory process and effectively build clinical skills and professional competence. While research and book-length texts on effective supervision have proliferated, these are typically directed towards supervisors and clinical educators. Since it was first published in 2004, Falender and Shafranske’s Clinical Supervision: A Competency-Based Approach has become the standard, go-to resource on supervisory and clinical competence. Now the authors have created an empirically-supported yet practical book for student and interns. Written in an interactive style with “real life” case examples and reflection activities, this book shows students how to establish effective working supervisory relationships and understand and make use of formative and summative evaluations. Empirically-supported yet highly practical, this is an essential text that normalizes the anxieties and conflicts that typically arise during supervision.
Russell Hunter and two of his cousins were left the contents of a 29-room mansion that had been closed up for 20 years. It had belonged to his cousin Margy’s very wealthy family. Hunter had known the estate as a child when the family was still wealthy and was both grieved and appalled to find out what had become of the home he once knew and loved.
