"The Strunk & White of academic writing."—Richard Bullock, Wright State University As employers, politicians, parents, and other citizens lament the decline of writing skills among Americans, this little book comes to the rescue. An instant bestseller when it first appeared as a college textbook, "They Say / I Say" gives writers precisely what they need to know in the all-important domain of persuasive writing. Cutting through the clutter of educational diagnoses and nostrums, it goes right to the heart of what writers most need to do, and that is to listen to what others are saying (they say), summarize it, and then offer their own argument (I say) as a response. Offering user-friendly templates to help writers make these key moves in their own writing, "They Say / I Say" is already being called the Strunk & White of persuasive writing.

I graduated with an Associated Degree, majoring in Civil Engineering. Most of my courses were in Physical science and Mathematics. Books that I have read were about sciences written by renowned authors: Isaac Asimov, Carl Sagan, etc. I enjoyed reading, writing poems, playing chess, intellectual conversations. I have four children and a very supportive spouse. During my college life 0/0 was always undefined. I kept in my mind. Some mathematician friends of mine tell me 0/0 is infinite. This book provides some thought-provoking about 0/0, 1/0 and my own version of the Theory of Everything. The thought of Symmetrical coordinates were in my mind ever since I realized that the Cartesian Coordinates were asymmetrical. Everything has an opposite reaction according to the Bible. This book tells about the moment the Four forces of nature: Electromagnetic, strong nuclear, weak nuclear, and gravity forces exploded in an instance (singularity) This theory that I made is my own version of the Theory of Everything: 8 = 8X? since X? = 1 God exists Therefore 8-8 = 0 in the beginning Every six thousand years civilization disappears -Hyperborian, Lemurian, Atlantian. From Adam and Eve to the present time were presented using both types of coordinates. Lots of amateurs in many field had ideas and proved to be right. I hope mine are another surprised one.

Um Hilfe zu bitten fällt uns oft schwer, weil wir Angst haben, schwach und bedürftig zu scheinen. Eine völlig falsche Sichtweise, meint Amanda Palmer. Die Musikerin ist eine wahre Expertin darin, sich helfen zu lassen, bat sie doch bei unzähligen Gelegenheiten um die Unterstützung ihrer Fans. Dabei hat sie erfahren, dass der ausgetauschte Gefallen stets für beide Seiten ein Gewinn ist. Wer um Hilfe bittet, zeigt sich zwar verletzlich, erhält aber auch die Chance, Vertrauen zu beweisen und Beziehungen aufzubauen. Amanda Palmer hat ein großes Buch über Menschlichkeit geschrieben; über Ängste und Schwächen und über die Kraft der Güte und des Vertrauens.

They Say I Have ADHD, I Say Life Sucks! Thoughts from Nicholas

What is wrong with Nicholas? Nothing is wrong with Nicholas, he just happens to have ADHD. Readers follow Nicholas, and his animated and sometimes comical clock companion, through a typical day. A day in which Nicholas loses a friend or two, talks too much, forgets his homework, gets sent to the principal's office, is teased by his peers, and feels all around inadequate. Readers can vividly view how the symptoms of ADHD accumulate and often follow a domino effect. Readers will also gain insight into the thoughts and feelings behind many of the behaviors exhibited by children who have ADHD. As reviewed by New York Times best-selling author Ellen Tanner Marsh Recently Mark Haddon wrote a book called The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, which made the unusual and imaginative leap of letting a boy with autism tell the story himself. Whether fictional or not, books about characters with one psychological dysfunction or another are typically written from the third-person point of view so that we learn the "truths" from someone other than the sufferer. In They Say I Have ADHD, I Say Life Sucks! Thoughts From Nicholas, Lisa-Anne Ray-Byers brilliantly and adeptly follows the same principle as Haddon, allowing Nicholas-a boy with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder-to tell his own story. Nicholas wonders, Why can't I be normal? In truth, disorganization and messiness go with being a kid, but Nicholas has been convinced of exactly the opposite by a mother and teachers who do not seem to understand childhood, nor how to accommodate Nicholas's actual "disorder." Fortunately, Ray-Byers has done an outstanding job telling this story in the first person, thus bringing much needed insight to the difficulties children with ADHD face from their waking hours until bedtime. To read this book is to learn to sympathize and certainly to gain a better understanding that may possibly lead to better treatment for those afflicted. For this reason alone, the value of this book cannot be overstated! About Lisa-Anne Lisa-Anne Ray-Byers is a native of the beautiful island of Bermuda. She immigrated to the United States after completing her Bachelor of Science degree in Communicative Disorders from Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan.

In addition to her duties as a speech-language pathologist, the author also writes a weekly question and answer column in four local newspapers entitled Ask Lisa-Anne. Her column covers topics in education, education law, special education, and numerous related issues. In 2006, she launched her educational website as a resource for parents, therapists and teachers. She also shares a monthly educational e-newsletter as an extension of her website.

In 2008, President Barack Obama gave a speech in Chicago, Illinois declaring that black men in America have abandoned the responsibility of fatherhood. At that moment I became inspired to write in response to the speech on the behalf of black fathers in this country. The more I researched and wrote I came to the conclusion that this is an American problem not an African-American issue. The details in this book are written in the form of an autobiography and memoir of my life. But in particular chapters I take the opportunity to offer a contributed solution to the baby daddy and baby mamma drama, discrimination, and homosexual relationships. I feel that if Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman had an applicable understanding of the contributed solution which is in the form of an equation in this book. The event at the night of the Trayvon murder would have not taken place and both individuals could have walked away in peace. In addition to the documentation and story in this book I have also included my three rap albums in which I have recorded throughout my life over the course of 10 years. Each album represents different stages of my life. The most current album is "The Resurrection" which is not completed as of August 2013 but will be available for download soon. I want to capture the emotion of my experiences as I am inspired and be able to share the recordings with my fans as soon as I am done. However, this brings a new excitement to the rap industry because I have a book that enables readers to download rap music at any given time. So all in reality my fans and supporters can take this journey of recording with me. So I offer my story, wisdom, and music.
