Reading the World’s Stories is volume 5 in the Bridges to Understanding series of annotated international youth literature bibliographies sponsored by the United States Board on Books for Young People. USBBY is the United States chapter of the International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY), a Switzerland-based nonprofit whose mission is bring books and children together. The series promotes sharing international children’s books as a way to facilitate intercultural understanding and meet new literary voices. This volume follows Children’s Books from Other Countries (1998), The World though Children’s Books (2002), Crossing Boundaries with Children’s Books (2006), and Bridges to Understanding: Envisioning the World through Children’s Books (2011) and acts as a companion book to the earlier titles. Centered around the theme of the importance of stories, the guide is a resource for discovering more recent global books that fit many reading tastes and educational needs for readers aged 0-18 years. Essays by storyteller Anne Pellowski, author Beverley Naidoo, and academic Marianne Martens offer a variety of perspectives on international youth literature. This latest installment in the series covers books published from 2010-2014 and includes English-language imports as well as translations of children’s and young adult literature first published outside of the United States. These books are supplemented by a smaller number of culturally appropriate books from the US to help fill in gaps from underrepresented countries. The organization of the guide is geographic by region and country. All of the more than 800 entries are recommended, and many of the books have won awards or achieved other recognition in their home countries. Forty children’s book experts wrote the annotations. The entries are indexed by author, translator, illustrator, title, and subject. Back matter also includes international book awards, important organizations and research collections, and a selected directory of publishers known for publishing books from other countries.

[Contains Episodes 015 - 037] Damian and the others finally make it to the the floating country of Sky Japan so that Damian could keep his end of the bargain to help the Knight Sisters find their mother. Unfortunately, things aren't going to be that simple, especially after Damian and the Knight Sisters become entangled in a brutal power struggle between warring criminal syndicates and anti-government factions. On top of that, Damian is given a job to save hundreds of children from the most powerful and sadistic ringleader of the Sky Japan criminal underworld, and he has three different military groups and his vengeful enemy closing in on him from all sides, and only four hours to deal with them all before everything goes to hell.

Volume 1 of the series Changing the Global Approach to Medicine introduced the concept of RNA Vector Therapy, the innovative utilization of virus-like devices to deliver RNA molecules to protein deficient cells to provide a directed medical therapy. Volume 2 greatly expands this approach to configuring enhanced virus-like transport devices to deliver various forms of therapeutic materials to specific cell types. Medial Vector Therapy includes the delivery of DNA, chemotherapy and other drug molecules, oxygen, and nutrients as well as various forms of RNA to the cells that require such therapeutic interventions. This ingenious new approach to the management of challenging diseases has the distinct advantage of administering a broad spectrum of therapeutic elements directly to the cells in need, but dramatically limits the side effects by not exposing other cells in the body to the potential harmful effects of such therapies. Also introduced in this text are the innovative concepts the Quantum Gene and the Quadsistor.

This book explores the implications of recent insights in modern neuroscience that attribute mental capacities often ascribed to a disembodied soul instead to the functions of the brain and body in collaboration with social experience. It explores how this insight changes the traditional "care of souls," encouraging more attention to fostering spiritual growth through a social and communal focus.

This is the second of a two-volume work on the biology, morphology, ecology, disease relationships, and control of ticks. Volume 2 explores survival strategies of non-nidicolous ticks (those dispersed throughout the open landscape and attacking passing hosts) versus nidicolous ticks (those surviving in caves, burrows, nests, or man-made shelters). It also examines immunological responses to tick parasitism, the role of ticks in disease transmission, and the control of ticks through acaricides and recent innovative approaches using knowledge of tick and host ecology, tick pheromones, hormones, and modelling. An appendix is also included, with details on methods for collecting ticks in the natural environment, preparing ticks for study, and laboratory rearing. This book is a worthy complement to the first volume's outstanding achievement, and will be of interest to entomologists, physicians, veterinarians, and public health officers.
