Rätselhaft und spannend bis zur letzten Zeile In Eds Briefkasten liegt – eine Spielkarte. Ein Karoass. Darauf stehen drei Adressen. Die Neugier treibt ihn hin zu diesen Orten, doch was er dort sieht, bestürzt ihn zutiefst: drei unerträglich schwere Schicksale, Menschen, die sich nicht selbst aus ihrem Elend befreien können. Etwas in Ed schreit: »Du musst handeln! Tu endlich was!« Dreimal fasst er sich ein Herz, dreimal verändert er Leben. Da flattert ihm die nächste Karte ins Haus. Wieder und wieder ergreift Ed die Initiative – doch wer ihn auf diese eigenartige Mission geschickt hat, ist ihm völlig schleierhaft. • Voll Weisheit, Leidenschaft und Güte • Ein Panorama menschlicher Schicksale, mitreißend und herzergreifend erzählt • Ausgezeichnet mit dem Deutschen Jugendliteraturpreis 2007

The public education system in New York is in turmoil. Is this because of leadership in Albany, the No Child Left Behind Act, parents who fail in their effort to raise children properly, or is it just the fault of kids who show little to no respect for authority, peers, or themselves? Or should we accept the most popular place of blame? The teacher is the problem.The former world, where teachers were revered, looked up to by children and parents, and respected because of the crucial role they played, is all but a forgotten memory. Today, parents and school administrators often demonize teachers and are openly critical of the tenure system, which protects their positions seemingly forever.Riverton School District has lots of issues. There is rampant bullying and peer intimidation. Some kids are even afraid to come to school. The disrespect and outrageous behavior runs not only unchecked, but leadership in Albany wants to see even less discipline and consequences for the young perpetrators.Brendan Moss teaches eighth-grade math at Riverton. As a widower and devoted father of three, he does his best to assist young people, but the school superintendent wants to use the veteran math teacher as a test case to overturn the right to lifetime tenure. Don't Blame the Messenger addresses school policies, State Department of Education leadership, bullying, and why a teacher's tenure should be maintained and viewed as something good for kids and the process of learning.The author works in the trenches, where truth and reality collide. Opinions on what is wrong with public education vary. Don't Blame the Messenger is written by a teacher who knows how it really is.

The Political Impact of War Reporting

Page: 318

As the literature on military-media relations grows, it is informed by antagonism either from journalists who report on wars or from ex-soldiers in their memoirs. Academics who attempt more judicious accounts rarely have any professional military or media experience. A working knowledge of the operational constraints of both professions underscores Shooting the Messenger. A veteran war correspondent and think tank director, Paul L. Moorcraft has served in the British Ministry of Defence, while historian-by-training Philip M. Taylor is a professor of international communications who has lectured widely to the U.S. military and at NATO institutions. Some of the topics they examine in this wide-ranging history of military-media relations are: - the interface between soldiers and civilian reporters covering conflicts - the sometimes grey area between reporters' right or need to know and the operational security constraints imposed by the military - the military's manipulation of journalists who accept it as a trade-off for safer battlefield access - the resultant gap between images of war and their reality - the evolving nature of media technology and the difficulties--and opportunities--this poses to the military - journalistic performance in reporting conflict as an observer or a participant Moorcraft and Taylor provide a bridge over which each side can pass and a path to mutual understanding.
