The prize-winning PBS correspondent's provocative antidote to America’s misguided approaches to K-12 school reform During an illustrious four-decade career at NPR and PBS, John Merrow—winner of the George Polk Award, the Peabody Award, and the McGraw Prize—reported from every state in the union, as well as from dozens of countries, on everything from the rise of district-wide cheating scandals and the corporate greed driving an ADD epidemic to teacher-training controversies and America’s obsession with standardized testing. Along the way, he taught in a high school, at a historically black college, and at a federal penitentiary. Now, the revered education correspondent of PBS NewsHour distills his best thinking on education into a twelve-step approach to fixing a K–12 system that Merrow describes as being “addicted to reform” but unwilling to address the real issue: American public schools are ill-equipped to prepare young people for the challenges of the twenty-first century. This insightful book looks at how to turn digital natives into digital citizens and why it should be harder to become a teacher but easier to be one. Merrow offers smart, essential chapters—including “Measure What Matters,” and “Embrace Teachers”—that reflect his countless hours spent covering classrooms as well as corridors of power. His signature candid style of reportage comes to life as he shares lively anecdotes, schoolyard tales, and memories that are at once instructive and endearing. Addicted to Reform is written with the kind of passionate concern that could come only from a lifetime devoted to the people and places that constitute the foundation of our nation. It is a “big book” that forms an astute and urgent blueprint for providing a quality education to every American child.

The techniques and methods that can be applied to materials characterization on the microscale are numerous and well-established. Divided into two parts, Characterization of Nanostructures provides thumbnail sketches of the most widely used techniques and methods that apply to nanostructures, and discusses typical applications to single nanoscale objects, as well as to ensembles of such objects. Section I: Techniques and Methods overviews the physical principles of the main techniques and describes those operational modes that are most relevant to nanoscale characterization. It provides sufficient technical detail so that readers and prospective users can gain an appreciation of the strengths and limitations of particular techniques. The section covers both mainstream and less commonly used techniques. Section II: Applications of Techniques to Structures of Different Dimensionalities and Functionalities deals with the methods for materials characterization of generic types of systems, using carefully chosen illustrations from the literature. Each chapter begins with a brief description of the materials and supplies a context for the methods for characterization. The volume concludes with a series of flow charts and brief descriptions of tactical issues. The authors focus on the needs of the research laboratory but also address those of quality control, industrial troubleshooting, and online analysis. Characterization of Nanostructures describes those techniques and their operational modes that are most relevant to nanoscale characterization. It is especially relevant to systems of different dimensionalities and functionalities. The book builds a bridge between generalists, who play vital roles in the post-disciplinary area of nanotechnology, and specialists, who view themselves as more in the context of the discipline.

A man inherits an elephant with a fondness for alcohol—from the author of the Corfu Trilogy, which inspired the PBS Masterpiece hit, The Durrells in Corfu. When his uncle passes away unexpectedly, young Adrian Rookwhistle’s inheritance turns his humdrum life upside down. Instead of a manor house, Adrian has been bequeathed Rosy, an elephant whose predilection for fine spirits leads to high jinks far beyond the means of a shy English gentleman. Convinced that a circus will take the troublesome tusker off his hands, Adrian leads Rosy on a trek to the coast, setting in motion an uproarious adventure of mammoth proportions. Author Gerald Durrell promises that despite being embellished here and there, “nearly all the adventures in this book really happened.” Ultimately, this tale of a pachyderm with a penchant for pandemonium guarantees pure entertainment. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Gerald Durrell including rare photos from the author’s estate.

Después de Irène y Alex, llega la tercera entrega de la serie del comisario Camille Verhoeben, por el autor ganador de un premio Goncourt, de dos Dagger Awards, del Premio de Novela Negra Europea y del Permio Best Novel Valencia Negra, con más de medio millón de lectores. El dilema del comandante Camille Verhoeben. Jean Garnier es un joven solitario que lo ha perdido todo: su trabajo, tras la muerte misteriosa de su jefe; su novia, en un extraño accidente, y Rosie, su madre y principal apoyo, que ha sido encarcelada. Para dar rienda suelta a su dolor, planea hacer explotar siete obuses, uno por día, en distintos puntos de la geografía francesa. Después del primer estallido se entrega a la policía. Su única condición para evitar la catástrofe es la liberación de su madre. El comisario Verhoeben se encuentra ante un gran dilema: ¿es Jean un lunático con delirios de grandeza o una verdadera amenaza para todo el país? Reseñas: «Maravilloso libro. Obra de gran plasticidad visual, desborda carisma y riqueza de sensaciones, recursos y precisión mecánica, la misma que en el resto de su obra. Leerlo es uno de los grandes placeres privados contemporáneos.» Ramón Ventura, El Periódico de Catalunya «Lemaitre disfruta de lo lindo rompiendo convenciones y jugando con ellas porque las conoce bien y maneja los géneros con la habilidad de un prestidigitador. [...] Un fantástico experimento de literatura recreativa con perturbado al fondo.» Javier Aparicio Maydeu, Babelia «Camille Verhoeven, el policía enano, colérico, brutalmente humano..., un personaje del que me enamoré desde el primer momento, que respira verdad y dolor, al que vuelvo una y otra vez.» Juan Carlos Galindo, blog Elemental de El País «El dinamismo narrativo que imprime Lemaitre [...] resulta absorbente y logra su propósito con creces: que el lector ansíe querer saber lo que trama Jean, y se asombre junto al protagonista ante el imprevisible desenlace.» Toni Montesinos, La Razón «No se pierdan la serie, ya les adelanto que engancha hasta metas insospechadas, pues Lemaitre no se para en barras y sabe llevar las situaciones hasta límites difícilmente tolerables.» Enrique García Fuentes, Hoy Extremadura «Si nunca ha leído a Pierre Lemaitre y quiere saborear un Premio Goncourt en una pequeña dosis, Rosy & John es la lectura perfecta. Cuidado: una vez que empiece no podrá abandonarla.» Michel Bélair, Le Devoir «El comandante Verhoeben es un gran tipo y yo ya lo he subido al altar que ocupan Holmes, Maigret, Wexford o Harry Bosch. La trilogía Verhoeben se lee de un tirón y desprende una melancolía notable por un minipoli adorable y la raza humana en general. No se la pierdan.» Ramón de España, El periódico de Catalunya

In his acclaimed, award-winning novels Alex and Irène, Pierre Lemaitre created an unforgettable character in Police Commandant Camille Verhoeven. Now, in Camille, the final volume in Lemaitre's internationally bestselling trilogy of "meta-meta detective" novels (The New York Times), Verhoeven faces his most harrowing case yet, and the ultimate reckoning for the diminutive yet tenacious protagonist. Anne Forestier finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time when she is trapped in the middle of a bank robbery. Shot three times, she is lucky to survive-and morbidly unlucky to remember the face of her assailant. Followed home from her hospital bed, Anne is in grave danger. But one thing stands in her favor-a dangerously vengeful partner, carrying the scars of devastating loss, who will break all the rules to protect the woman he loves: Commandant Camille Verhoeven. Following the horror of Irène and the thrills of Alex, Camille is the heart-stopping final chapter. Drawn once again into a labyrinthine web with answers ever out of reach, Camille must draw on all his talent to face an enemy who threatens everything he holds dear.
