This extended collection of papers is the result of putting recent ideas on quantification to work on a wide variety of languages. A central perspective of many of the papers follows the recognition of two broad types of quantificational strategies, one associated with nominal structures and determiners, the other with adverbial and other non-nominal expression (`D-quantifiers' and `A-quantifiers'). The papers demonstrate both the unity and the variety of natural language quantificational forms and meanings. Many of the papers also shed new light on questions of language typology and syntactic and morphological variation. The languages discussed include English, Dutch, Italian, American Sign Language, Hindi, and a number of languages of Australia, Greenland, and the Americas. These comparative studies provide initial data for a typology of quantificational structures in natural languages, with important implications for the study of universal grammar. The book consists of research papers aimed at linguists, philosophers, and psychologists interested in semantics and linguistic form. An introduction presents a sketch of the background of this research and some of the central issues discussed, with pointers toward the included papers.

SEVENTEEN LIFE DECISIONS Unlocking God’s unlimited provision through applying principles in His Word is the subject of this book. There is a part one plays in every miracle. Continuously thinking the same and hoping that things will change for the better creates mere illusions of grandeur. Unfortunately, many people wait for God to do the things they should be doing in order for them to tap into His unlimited favor. The book purposes that God’s favor awaits those whose minds have been renewed through aligning their decisions and actions with principles in His Word. Decisions create opportunity and favor. The principles of God are constant and will work for anyone who is obedient to follow them. Even great motivation speakers and business leaders of our generation have relied heavily on these Biblical principles to ignite innate ability and unknown strength in individuals to act purposively and decisively. You too can change the course of your life through thinking and decisions that align with the Word of God. You are seventeen decisions away from your provision.

Fred Rogers is one of the great icons of American culture and the values and philosophy for which he is famous have stood the test of time. Fables and the Art of Leadership brings those same values and philosophy to the workplace, where they're now needed more than ever. This unique and timely work is for everyone who aspires to become and be a better leader. Mister Rogers didn't expound abstract principles to help children face up to the problems they faced; instead, he created and told countless fables and stories. Ian and Donna Mitroff's book uses those fables to help managers master the most difficult challenges they face: achieving significant change; fostering creativity; curbing rudeness; promoting leadership, managing crises, and many more. It is their new interpretations for the workplace that will make Fables and the Art of Leadership a classic in business studies.

Life-changing traumatic brain injury can be a devastating and frustrating experience for an individual and his or her family. Or, brain injury can be a significant—yet not catastrophic—event that sets the stage for discovering what it means to become “normal” once more. Normal Again: Redefining Life with Brain Injury combines professional neuropsychological information alongside first-person accounts of the brain injury experience and the satisfactions of growing from it. The book provides insights for conquering the cognitive and emotional consequences of brain injury for individuals and families, as well as for educators, therapists, and medical professionals. The experience of brain injury does not have to be permanently dark and lonely. Instead, through an examination of personal values, the affirmation of hope, an on-going appraisal of realistic expectations, and application of specific rehabilitation strategies, life can once again have meaning, joy, and contentment. Normal Again focuses on a compassionate understanding of the personal experience of brain injury, with medical and psychological detail sufficient for gaining a basic understanding of brain injury. This is complemented with practical information about psychological, family, and vocational adjustments—and how to accomplish them—necessary for going beyond the usual scope of brain injury rehabilitation.

It Takes A Village To Name A Child

With vivid illustrations and abrasive insight, Chinazor Onianwah gathers strewn skeletal remains of Africa’s history, fleshes it out and breadths air into it in typical griot style; this is the Africa that comes alive in this narrative, "It Takes A Village to Name a Child, Celebrating the bestowment of Ancestry, Faith, Identity and Legacy of African roots of Biblical Hebrews." In this narrative, which intertwines history, archeological data and mythology, he compels his readers to re-evaluate stereotypes and what it means to be African. Not only would any reader – African or non-African – be amazed at what they never knew that they never knew of Africa; they may find it endearing to be African. After all, it was barely 60,000 years ago that we all came out of Africa. Painstakingly, Chinazor employs his wealth of experience as a news reporter/researcher to connect dots of historical events since the beginning of time through Biblical "Genesis" to the present day to render a befitting portraiture of Africa. And in so doing, answered frequently asked questions: Why a naming ceremony is essential for an African child Why the African is the forbearer of Biblical Hebrews. How the Ashkenazim (European Jews) usurped Hebraism and the Holy Land Are blacks less intelligent than whites? What is in a name like Barack Hussein Obama? Why Africa is so rich yet so poor Excerpt: On October 14, 2007, a few months after Barack Obama announced his candidacy in the US Democratic presidential race, a biographical article appeared in Britain’s Sunday Times Magazine about Dr. James Watson, the American molecular biologist, who is best known as the co-discoverer of the structure of DNA. It said he was "inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa as all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours — whereas all the testing says not really." In what appears to be a response to racists who hold similar views as Dr. James Watson, in a paper titled "Did they or didn’t they invent it? Iron in Sub-Saharan Africa," Stanley B. Alpern wrote, "The idea that sub-Saharan Africans independently invented iron is more than a century old. It goes back at least to a German scholar, Ludwig Beck, who published a five-volume history of iron between 1884 and 1903. In the first volume he wrote, "We see everywhere an original art of producing iron among the numerous native tribes of Africa, which is in its entire essence not imported but original and . . . must be very old." Around the same time some Egyptologists, notably the Frenchman Gaston Maspéro, concluded that ancient Egypt had learned its iron working from black Africans to the south. The German Felix von Luschan, better known among Africanists for his writings on the art of old Benin, also thought sub-Saharan Africans originated iron technology, as did the British metallurgist William Gowland..." The night Barack Obama stood to address the world on his victory as the first African American to win the US Presidency; he was standing against the backdrop of hundreds of years of a racist belief that blacks are inferior to whites. This notion of blacks as inferior to their white counterpart reached its apogee when European governments led by Great Britain embarked on a vigorous campaign to promote the virtues of colonialism by denigrating the natives of the colonies and claiming that the savages needed to be civilized by the ‘white man’. Public displays of indigenous people were held for scientific and leisure purposes. Between 1877 and 1912, approximately thirty “ethnological exhibitions” were presented at the Jardin zoologique d’acclimatation. “Negro villages” were major draws in the Paris’ 1878 and 1879 World’s Fair; the 1900 World’s Fair presented the famous diorama “living” in Madagascar. At the same time, the Colonial Exhibitions in Marseilles (1906 and 1922) and in Paris (1907 and 1931) displayed Africans in cages, often in stark nudity.

Purpose in Prayer

What is prayer with a purpose? "The definite and direct utterance of one who knew that he had the ear of God, and that God had the willingness as well as the power to grant the petition which he asked of Him." There are basics of prayer. When you understand them, your prayers will change you, your family, and the world. Here are a few of the basics: The more praying there is in the world the better the world will be. Prayer is a disinfectant and a preventive. It purifies the air; it destroys the contagion of evil. Prayer is no fitful, short-lived thing. It is no voice crying unheard and unheeded in the silence. God shapes the world by prayer. Author Edward M. Bounds, a prolific writer about prayer, focuses on the purpose in prayer rather than the purpose of prayer-and answers many questions you may have about how to improve your prayer time. Why don't we pray more? "Other duties become pressing and absorbing and crowd out prayer. Choked to death, would be the coroner's verdict in many cases of dead praying, if an inquest could be secured on this dire, spiritual calamity." Will you be the one to pray for the various interests of earth and Heaven?

When I Am Little Again And The Child s Right to Respect

These two works belong to that group of books written by one of this century's fiercest and most devoted child advocates. In the first, Korczak uses fiction to reveal the joys and sorrows of a child, a ten-year-old, juxtaposing them against the feelings of an adult as they both react to two days of adventure spent together. Two prominent themes in his writing are the exploration of the place of children in an adult world and the examination of the treatment and regard children are accorded in that world. In his second book, Korczak spells out his 'Magna Charta Libertatis' in defense of the child's right to respect, right to be him or herself, and, most importantly, right to respect for the strenuous effort expended in the process of 'growing up.'
