By providing new understanding and insights into the backgrounds and experiences of women pursuing administrative careers in education, Pushing the Limits fills a critical void in the existing literature. Sakre Edson’s five-year investigation documents the accounts of 142 nonminority and minority women across the United States seeking administrative roles—an area of public school responsibility where women remain underrepresented. Edson’s book is unique in its focus on aspirants—those women currently preparing and competing for principalships and other top administrative positions—rather than on established female administrators or on women who have chosen not to aspire beyond the classroom. The female teachers, graduate students, and entry-level administrators quoted here give voice to the struggles would-be female school executives face, and their experiences and reflections not only question the impact of the women’s movement and equity legislation upon employment practices, but serve to illuminate the problems of women and minorities excluded from managerial ranks in professions outside of education. Throughout the work one theme prevails: As they push the limits of this traditional male bastion, these women are confident in their abilities to succeed and even to excel in managing the nation’s schools.

How do we prepare children for a future we can't even imagine? Across Canada, a debate swirls around what our children will need to know in the face of huge technological, economic, social and political change. The question has become an ideological battleground, and there is a hunger for a deeper understanding of what we should be doing to prepare children now for the challenges of the future. This timely, important book is an answer to that call. In Pushing the Limits, Kelly Gallagher-Mackay and Nancy Steinhauer draw on their experiences as educational leaders to reveal that the schools of the future exist in the here and now. They introduce us to extraordinary Canadian public schools, deeply rooted in their communities, that are fostering innovators, nimble problem-solvers and engaged citizens, boosting math comprehension, cultivating creativity and using technology to broaden the parameters of learning. And they explore why the role of schools is expanding to nurture students' social-emotional skills and growth mindsets, and how vital this broader definition of education is to children's long-term health, happiness and success. This book provides a vision of what schooling can and should look like in our rapidly shifting world and explores how we—parents and teachers—can realize this vision together.

The bestselling autobiography of Casey Stoner, Australia's two-time MotoGP Champion. 'If you never give up, anything can happen' - Casey Stoner Showing anything is possible when determination meets talent, two-time World MotoGP champion Casey Stoner shares his inspirational journey from Queensland toddler, with an extraordinary ability on a motorbike, to his decision to retire at twenty-seven with nothing left to prove. For the first time, he tells of his early family life, the development of his riding skills and why his parents decided to sell everything and travel from Australia to Europe to chase the dream and support his aim to become World Champion when he was only fourteen years old. As fearless with his opinions as he is on the racetrack, Casey includes all the highs and lows of his life so far: the real reason he left for Europe so young, his thoughts on racing as it stands today, the riders' hierarchy, the politics of racing, the importance of family, his battle with illness and why he decided to turn his back on a multimillion-dollar contract when he was still winning. And he will let us in on some of the new goals he has set for himself. Pushing the Limits is a unique and remarkable account of self-sacrifice and determination to succeed against the odds, the inspiring story of a young Australian who took on the world on his terms, his way. . . and won.

Recipient of the Banff Mountain Book Festival's Canadian Rockies Award A book to be read and digested, then sampled, then read and dipped into often a fine achievement for this dedicated author Bruce Fairley,Canadian Alpine Journal HOLY SHIT WAAAAAAAAAT A FABBBBBULOUS TOME. Tami Knight, Illustrator/Mountaineer This important new book tells the story of Canada's 200-year mountaineering history. Through the use of stories and pictures, Chic Scott documents the evolution of climbing in Canada. He introduces us to the early mountain pioneers and the modern day climbing athletes; he takes us to the crags and the gyms, from the west coast to Québec, and from the Yukon to the Rockies. But most importantly, Scott showcases Canadian climbers-the routes that challenged them, the peaks that inspired them, their insatiable desire to climber harder, to push the limits. Begin the trek through Canada's climbing history Learn about Swiss guides hired by CPR hotels who ushered in the glory years of first ascents. Continue through to the turn of the twentieth century when British and American climbers of leisure found themselves hampered by the difficulties of travel through the Canadian wilderness. Learn about the European immigrants of the 1950s who pushed the limits on the rock walls, and the American superstars who led the search for frightening new routes on the big north faces. Be there when British expatriates pioneer an exciting new trend in world mountaineering-waterfall ice climbing. Witness the popular growth of sport climbing, both on the crags and in the gyms. Finally, enjoy the story of home-grown climbers. Initially slow to take up the challenge, both at home and overseas, they are now leaders in the climbing world.

Pushing the Limits of Compiler Verification

Modern computer systems rely on the correctness of at least one compiler for correct operation. Formal verification is a powerful technique for constructing correct systems. While there have been many efforts to develop formally verified compilers, those compilers are still not widely used. In this thesis, I present two major systems developments and one case study which push the limits of compiler verification, towards more and better verified compilers. Œuf: Verifying systems by implementing them in the programming language of a proof assistant (e.g., Gallina for Coq) lets us directly leverage the full power of the proof assistant for verifying the system. But, to execute such an implementation requires extraction, a large complicated process that is in the trusted computing base (TCB). Here I present Œuf, a verified compiler from a subset of Gallina to assembly. Œuf's correctness theorem ensures that compilation preserves the semantics of the source Gallina program. I describe how Œuf's specification can be used as a foreign function interface to reason about the interaction between compiled Gallina programs and surrounding shim code. Additionally, Œuf maintains a small TCB for its front-end by reflecting Gallina programs to Œuf source and automatically ensuring equivalence using computational denotation. This design enabled my collaborators and me to implement some early compiler passes (e.g., lambda lifting) in the untrusted reflection and ensure their correctness via translation validation. To evaluate Œuf, we compile Appel’s SHA256 specification from Gallina to x86 and write a shim for the generated code, yielding a verified sha256sum implementation with a small TCB. Using Œuf: Œufwas developed in order to allow verified systems to be developed and verified in Coq, compiled to executable code using Œuf, with all guarantees proven at the Gallina level preserved through compilation to the assembly level. In order to evaluate this goal, I built the WordFreq verified system in Coq, compiled it with Œuf, and preserve the correctness guarantee through to the generated assembly code. Here I present the WordFreq verified system, its correctness guarantee, and the major parts of its correctness proof. I discuss the development of the system and its proof, as well as the axiomatic primitives necessary to tie it together. Peek: Transformations over assembly code are common in many compilers. These transformations are also some of the most bug-dense compiler components. Such bugs could be eliminated by formally verifying the compiler, but state-of-the-art formally verified compilers like CompCert do not support assembly-level program transformations. Here I present Peek, a framework for expressing, verifying, and running meaning-preserving assembly-level program transformations in CompCert. Peek contributes four new components: a lower level semantics for CompCert x86 syntax, a liveness analysis, a library for expressing and verifying peephole optimizations, and a verified peephole optimization pass built into CompCert. Each of these is accompanied by a correctness proof in Coq against realistic assumptions about the calling convention and the system memory allocator. Verifying peephole optimizations in Peek requires proving only a set of local properties, which my collaborators and I have proved are sufficient to ensure global transformation correctness. We have proven these local properties for 28 peephole transformations from the literature. Here I discuss the development of our new assembly semantics, liveness analysis, representation of program transformations, and execution engine; describe the verification challenges of each component; and detail techniques we applied to mitigate the proof burden.
