Since many centuries the United States of America has been a country of Immigrants. Immigrants have made America a booming economy and the "Shiny City" on the hill. But in today's United States of America, the talk about Immigrants has changed. The rhetoric is more negative, hurtful and discouraging. The immigration policy has not had a facelift since almost three decades and the policy makers, executive branch of the Government and politicians have not given a real thought to this issue nor have made conscious efforts to solve the problem. In today's politically charged negative environment towards the immigrants, the emotional side of the problem they face, the real hardship they face while coming to the USA and trying to settle in an Unknown world is forgotten. Their contributions and importance to the building of the USA has been forgotten. The book portrays the emotional side by giving true stories of two immigrant families. It also gives important data on the population of the immigrants and their contribution to society. Data on Dreamers and the issues they face are highlighted along with their contribution to the US economy.Organization like TheDream.US has taken a big step towards helping Dreamers succeed in getting a degree so that they can increase their earnings and help better the situation of their family, community and the country they call home, the United States of America.The important role played by Donald E. Graham and the other Co-founders and the donors have been highlighted along with roles played by the CEO's of companies like Microsoft and Apple who have hired Dreamers and have committed themselves to the cause of the Dreamers. The authors hope that after reading this book, the readers will make an effort to reach out their representatives and urge to help dreamers and their parents and try to be sympathetic towards the immigrants and acknowledge their contribution to our nation.This book is a joint effort by three immigrants to the United States of America.
My reason for writing this story, I have met women who have married into the merchant navy with all it entails. I have met others who have lived inIranand in other countries. I have known families who have experienced the death of children. I have met others who lived with cystic fibrosis and other genetic incurable illnesses and disabilities. I have seen television programmes of children being treated inGreatOrmandStreetHospital. I know of lots of people who have adopted children for one reason or another. I have, however, never met anyone who experienced every one of these except my husband and I, and all of it in a ten-year span of life.

Challenger veterans, including Gordon Fullerton and Vance Brand, describe their experiences and the differences between Challenger and her sister ships. The development of Challenger herself is explored in detail, including her design, development, construction, and preparation for missions.
By nature, man does not like to venture in unknown territories. He prefers a safe environment. Wants to live around people who are known, friendly, and love him. But there are some who are forced to venture out! Circumstances and certain events force them to come out of their shells and face an unknown world. Once out of their homes, they don't have much choices, but to endure what comes in their way. Their condition is like a piece of wood floating in a gushing stream. Circumstances dictate their course of actions. This book is about them.In today's political environment, the emotional side of the issue of immigration is forgotten by many. People don't realize that they are talking about live, breathing people who are suffering, going through hardships and who are not just numbers. This book will give the reader an opportunity to put his/her foot into the shoes of a dreamer or an undocumented immigrant. What would have the reader done when faced with such similar circumstances? Will he/she had taken a different course of action or would have just done the same?The debate about immigration and the invasion of our country by undocumented or illegals is mostly done in the light of an issue which our country face, mostly highlighted as a political talking point during the elections which inflicts a social and political stigma on the immigrants. Though living right under their noses, many Americans don't know what an undocumented immigrant in today's America goes through? How their day to day life looks like? Why they are forced to come to USA?Mostly seen as someone who takes away their jobs, get free benefits without paying taxes, crosses border illegally, makes babies in the USA and don't follow rules. The emotional side of the story of an immigrant is totally ignored! It gets lost in the rhetoric of today's political environment.The authors have tried to put faces behind this rhetoric to help people see the emotional side of what an undocumented immigrant or dreamer goes through. The stories told in this book are true. Only the names have been changed for privacy reasons. These are stories of live breathing people who are living alongside us and are trying best to create an environment which is fruitful and productive for themselves, their children and their community. The authors urge educators, policy makers, immigration lawyers, representatives of the State and Federal Governments, politicians, media persons, employers, religious entities, philanthropists, advocacy groups and citizens in general to do everything in their power to highlight the issues faced by the undocumented people, the dreamers and the TPS visa holders and help in any way and every way they can.May God bless us and the United States of America!Marz-Tahera-Juan

What would you do if the Lord sent you a dream about a young woman, and then the next day, there she was—standing in front of you in the check-out line at your local gas station?

You will discover examples of how a shy, introverted scientist has been able to share the hope in Jesus in a simple, loving way by sharing His faith story.

In 1998 I left London with vague plans of spending a short time in Spain and taking some photographs. I arrived in Madrid, with barely a word of Spanish, and ended up staying for good. The story follows my first three years in the country, and includes journeys through unknown Spain, wild fiestas, 'intercambio' dates, plus: bewildering confrontations with Spanish culture and family life, the renovation of a decrepit flat in Madrid's old quarter, and an intimate portrait of Lavapies, a traditional inner city neighbourhood.
A Nebula Award winner presents tales that shaped modern science fiction and fantasy—five complete novels by Mark Twain, H. G. Wells, and more. In this handpicked collection, New York Times–bestselling author Greg Bear travels back to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when novelists let their imaginations soar beyond conventional boundaries of time and space and contributed to the emergence of imaginative new literary genres. In 1889, Mark Twain introduced Americans to time travel in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, in which a hard-headed New Englander is sent back through history to the age of chivalry. Six years later, H. G. Wells propelled an intrepid inventor into the far future via The Time Machine; there, our fearless hero discovers a nightmarish evolutionary scenario in which technologically advanced but mutated Morlocks dwell underground, preying on the innocent aboveground Eloi. In 1912, long before Ray Bradbury or Star Wars, Edgar Rice Burroughs imagined the first wildly popular alternative fantasy/alien culture with A Princess of Mars, transporting readers from Arizona to the red planet, where Confederate soldier John Carter is swept up in another kind of civil war and seduced by a gorgeous red-hued princess. In 1920, Scottish novelist David Lindsay presented A Voyage to Arcturus, an interstellar quest for truth as well as an inquiry into the nature of good and evil that inspired generations of fantasy writers to come. And in 1922, E. R. Eddison turned the planet Mercury into a fantasy version of Earth where demons and witches wage war on a Homeric scale in The Worm Ouroboros. With an insightful introduction, Bear celebrates the writers who first swept readers away to other times and worlds—and blew their minds in ways that altered our literary landscape and collective imagination forever.

Winner of the Literacy Research Association's 2015 Edward B. Fry Book Award Immigration is an ongoing, global phenomenon and schools and teachers in host countries must continually find new ways of working with the increasing numbers of immigrant pupils, including refugees and asylum seekers. Language and literacy are crucial for inclusion in a new context but these must be developed in spaces where these children feel safe to explore themes that resonate with their experiences; to express their understanding and to engage in intercultural exchange. Visual Journeys Through Wordless Narratives presents the exploration of response strategies to Shaun Tan's The Arrival. The inquiry was carried out in educational settings, with children from many different parts of the world, in four host countries: the UK, Spain, Italy and the USA. The findings reveal the benefits of using wordless narratives such as picturebooks and graphic novels together with visual strategies to support immigrant children's literary understandings and visual literacy. They also reveal the wealth of experiences the children bring with them which have the potential to transform educational practices.
The work of creating the future is being done now ─ and much of it is unsustainable in terms of natural and cultural resources. How will the next generation of leadership for environmental sustainability be raised up? Can we imagine sustainable futures, and can we enable transformative leadership to help us realize them? How can we best ensure that the several generations share their particular knowledge? What are the ethical frameworks, methodologies, curricula, and tools necessary for advancing and strengthening education for intergenerational sustainability learning and leadership? In this book, 82 authors from 26 countries across 6 continents seek answers in 32 essays to the many questions related to the intergenerational collaboration that holds promise for creating sustainable futures. The authors themselves represent a diversity of geography, gender, and generation ─ and include the institutions comprising the emerging International Intergenerational Net-work of Centers. They speak to key principles, perspectives, and praxes at the intersection of intergenerational learning and transformative leadership in the context of education for sustainability. A visionary tour de force, this book explores the challenges and complexities of future learning models beyond the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development. It provides a timely discourse encompassing intergenerational and cultural dimensions, including ethics. Contributors articulate a deeper understanding of leadership in the post-Enlightenment era. Chapters in the book offer examples cutting across a diverse range of experiences worldwide, making this volume not only refreshing for practitioners, but also invaluable to policy-makers. ─ Dzulkifli Abdul Razak President, International Association of Universities Former Vice-Chancellor, Universiti Sains Malaysia These are critical times for the global community. Big issues are on the table: security, climate change, environmental destabilization, disease, hunger, and others. Actions we take today must embrace lessons from the past, present realities, and the rights and interests of future generations. Indeed, intergenerational learning is vital to education for sustainable development. This book makes a very timely and urgent call, challenging our traditional learning approaches and inviting us to dig deeper, stretch our minds wider, and see farther. ─ Akpezi Ogbuigwe Former Head of Environmental Education and Training, United Nations Environment Programme Executive Chairperson, Anpez Center for Environment and Development, Port Harcourt, Nigeria Achieving sustainable development requires generations, young and old, to engage with and learn from each other, and for leadership to embrace change. That is one of the key messages of this remarkable book. I wish I had this book when I took up the leadership role of my university two decades ago. I wish I could have given this book to my sons as they started their university education. ─ Goolam Mohamedbhai Former Secretary-General, Association of African Universities Honorary President, International Association of Universities
