Generation is the story of the exciting, largely forgotten decade during the seventeenth century when a group of young scientists-Jan Swammerdam, the son of a Protestant apothecary, Nils Stensen (also known as Steno), a Danish anatomist who first discovered the human tear duct, Reinier de Graaf, the attractive and brilliant son of a rich and successful Catholic architect, and Antoni Leeuwenhoek, a self-taught draper-dared to challenge thousands of years of orthodox thinking about where life comes from. By meticulous experimentation, dissection, and observation with the newly invented microscope, they showed that like breeds like, that all animals come from an egg, that there is no such thing as spontaneous generation, and that there are millions of tiny, wriggling "eels" in semen. However, their ultimate inability to fully understand the evidence that was in front of them led to a fatal mistake. As a result, the final leap in describing the process of reproduction-which would ultimately give birth to the science of genetics-took nearly two centuries for humanity to achieve. Including previously untranslated documents, Generation interweaves the personal stories of these scientists against a backdrop of the Dutch "Golden Age." It is a riveting account of the audacious men who swept away old certainties and provided the foundation for much of our current understanding of the living world.

Women's bodies and the study of anatomy in Italy between the late thirteenth and the mid-sixteenth centuries. Toward the end of the Middle Ages, medical writers and philosophers began to devote increasing attention to what they called "women's secrets," by which they meant female sexuality and generation. At the same time, Italian physicians and surgeons began to open human bodies in order to study their functions and the illnesses that afflicted them, culminating in the great illustrated anatomical treatise of Andreas Vesalius in 1543. Katharine Park traces these two closely related developments through a series of case studies of women whose bodies were dissected after their deaths: an abbess, a lactating virgin, several patrician wives and mothers, and an executed criminal. Drawing on a variety of texts and images, she explores the history of women's bodies in Italy between the late thirteenth and the mid-sixteenth centuries in the context of family identity, religious observance, and women's health care. Secrets Of Women explodes the myth that medieval religious prohibitions hindered the practice of human dissection in medieval and Renaissance Italy, arguing that female bodies, real and imagined, played a central role in the history of anatomy during that time. The opened corpses of holy women revealed sacred objects, while the opened corpses of wives and mothers yielded crucial information about where babies came from and about the forces that shaped their vulnerable flesh. In the process, what male writers knew as the "secrets of women" came to symbolize the most difficult challenges posed by human bodies-- challenges that dissection promised to overcome. Park's study of women's bodies and men's attempts to know them--and through these efforts to know their own--demonstrates the centrality of gender to the development of early modern anatomy.

The secret to the creative genius is revealed! Being a genius is the realized possibility of living fully by one's inner resources (from the heart) and bringing these out in a tangible form (through the head). It is the perfect combination between spirituality and science. When both dimensions and qualities come together as one, a genius is produced. It has always been one of our greatest desires to reach the state of genius. It is the greatest dream of mankind, and the intense longing for it has followed us throughout history. The great geniuses we know seem so far above us that they appear almost impossible to reach. We look upon such people as divinely gifted and endowed with what appear to be supernatural powers. How is it possible to reach this state, upon which our greatest achievements have been built? The Secret to the Creative Genius Revealed answers this question as it reveals the true secret to the creative genius. It tells the principle (The Genius Factor) by which all great geniuses have worked. Through this book, we can all tap into our genius potential. The whole process falls into the realm of outer science meeting inner science.In other words, once we live by our true nature and original intent of being whole and complete, integrating material and spiritual life, we are genius. Born in Bavaria, Matthias Schubel has recently returned to Germany after living in Asia for the past seventeen years. He considers himself a New Age writer focusing on bridging Western science with Eastern philosophy.

The perpetual anxiety about America's educational system has created a state in which teachers, administrators, and parents are on a constant search for magical solutions for what ails the American classroom. Theories, reforms, and strategies abound, each purporting to be a panacea the educational establishment has long been waiting for. In TheSecrets ofTimeless Teachers: Instruction that Works in Every Generation, Jeremy S. Adams argues that the methods, habits, and behaviors that constitute powerful teaching do not change over time. In fact, an effective and impactful teacher a hundred years ago used many of the same habits and strategies a powerful teacher uses today. In essence, extraordinary teaching is timeless in nature. Like the speed of light or the sun rising in the East, it is a constant. Modern teachers who want to understand what timeless teaching looks like--and more importantly, how to do it--would be wise to study this text that is both highly descriptive and pragmatically actionable.
