If you ask Dr. Harold Reitman, labels are a lousy way to describe a unique human being, whether it's Asperger's, high functioning autism, ADHD, dyslexia, Tourette's or even the so-called neurotypical brain itself. One size does not fit all. Everyone's brain is different.
Helping others 'get it' when it comes to dealing with those with so-called learning disabilities is why Reitman has written this book. It's also why he wrote and produced The Square Root of 2, a movie about a college student who encounters—and fights—her school's unjust system. The film was inspired by the real events faced by his daughter and contributing author, Rebecca, when she went to college; her seizure disorder and—at the time—undiagnosed Asperger syndrome posed unique challenges not faced by most students.
After reviewing the scientific community's research, conducted over the last nearly 40 years, Dr. Reitman believes that it's time to not just accept neurodiversity, but to embrace it, and this book will help people do just that. It is the first book to offer simple tools, action plans and resources to help understand and deal with anyone whose brain is a bit different. The astonishing rate of autism births alone (1 in 68) means that society will have to adapt to neurodiversity, just as it has had to adapt to other cultural and racial differences. Our educational system, our workplaces, and society at large will no longer be one size fits all—each individual will have the opportunity to maximize their potential—and we will be the better for it.

Neal’s talents range from film directing (two short films he directed won him the coveted CINE Golden Eagle Awards) to writing music and stage plays – including book and lyrical contributions to “American Twistory,” which is currently played in several major cities. He has even tried his hand at creating Games, having developed three successful “How to Host a Mystery” game for teens, as well as seven “How to Host a Murder” games.

Of Everlost, School Library Journal wrote: “Shusterman has reimagined what happens after death and questions power and the meaning of charity. While all this is going on, he has also managed to write a rip-roaring adventure…”
Of Unwind, Publishers Weekly wrote; “[A] gripping, brilliantly imagined futuristic thriller…could hardly be more engrossing or better aimed to teens.”
Of The Schwa Was Here, School Library Journal wrote: “Shusterman’s characters–reminiscent of those crafted by E. L. Konigsburg and Jerry Spinelli–are infused with the kind of controlled, precocious improbability that magically vivifies the finest children’s classics.
Of Scorpion Shards, Publisher’s Weekly wrote: “Shusterman takes an outlandish comic-book concept, and, through the sheer audacity and breadth of his imagination makes it stunningly believable. A spellbinder.”
And of The Eyes of Kid Midas, The Midwest Book Review wrote “This wins our vote as one of the best young-adult titles of the year” and was called “Inspired and hypnotically readable” by School Library Journal.

“The definitive account of how term limits have reshaped contemporary Florida politics.”—Seth C. McKee, author of Republican Ascendancy in Southern U.S. House Elections “If you want to know why term limits were adopted in Florida and how they have changed the legislature and lawmaking process and the balance of power between institutional actors you absolutely have to read this book.”—Aubrey Jewett, coauthor of Politics in Florida, Third Edition In 1992, Florida voters approved an amendment to the state’s Constitution creating eight-year term limits for legislators—making Florida the second-largest state to implement such a law. Eight years later, sixty-eight term-limited senators and representatives were forced to retire, and the state saw the highest number of freshman legislators since the first legislative session in 1845.
Proponents view term limits as part of a battle against the rising political class and argue that limits will foster a more honest and creative body with ideal “citizen” legislators. However, in this comprehensive twenty-year study, the first of its kind to examine the effects of term limits in Florida, Kathryn DePalo shows nothing could be further from the truth. Instead, these limits created a more powerful governor, legislative staffers, and lobbyists. Because incumbency is now certain, leadership races—especially for Speaker—are sometimes completed before members have even cast a single vote. Furthermore, legislators rarely leave public office; they simply return to local offices where they continue to exert influence. The Failure of Term Limits in Florida is a tour de force examination of the unintended and surprising consequences of the new incumbency advantage in the Sunshine State.

About the Author:
Adrianne Calvo is a Cuban/American chef, author, television personality, and restaurateur born February 7, 1984. Calvo is the owner of Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar in Miami, Florida. Adrianne was born in Chicago, Illinois to a Cuban father, Manuel Calvo, and Cuban mother, Magaly Calvo. Adrianne was the eldest of two daughters. The family left Chicago to escape the harsh winters and moved to Miami where Adrianne attended Braddock Senior High School.
In 2002, Calvo enrolled at the culinary school Johnson & Wales University and entered more than forty national competitions, receiving first place in ten of the competitions and runner-up in all the rest. During this year, Adrianne competed in a National Pastry Competition held by Johnson & Wales University and received a bronze medal without any formal training. In 2003, Calvo won ‘’Taste Down Under’’, an Australian culinary competition and her winning dish was served at a dinner for the United Nations and its ambassadors, making her the youngest person to cook for the United Nations. A year later, she won ‘’Taste Down Under’’ again, and her dish was served to CNN correspondents and representatives from ‘’Gourmet’’, ‘’Food Network’’ and ‘’Bon Appetite”. All these accolades granted her the opportunity to cater the 2003 World Series for the champion Florida Marlins.
Moreover, in 2004, after graduating top of her class from, Calvo became the youngest chef to work at the five-diamond Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Miami; there she had the opportunity to master her craft by working under executive chef Patrick Lassaque, who had been the executive pastry chef of the Ritz Carlton in Paris for twenty years. After working at Mandarin Oriental, Calvo took a trip to Napa Valley, California, where she then sharpened her craft under Chef Thomas Keller and Chef Cindy Pawlcyn. This experience gave her the inspiration for her now restaurant “Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar” in Miami, in addition to her two cookbooks.
Adrianne Calvo has always made it a point to give back to the community. In 2006, after losing her younger sister, Jennifer, to tongue cancer, Calvo started the ‘’Make It Count’’ foundation which benefits children suffering from cancer and their families. She also sponsors events for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, Susan G Komen, and for the American Cancer Society along with her friends and staff. Every year during the holiday season, Calvo and her “Make It Count” foundation visit St. Jude’s Hospital in Memphis to cook for the patients and their families. St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital honored Calvo and her foundation in recognition for her time, efforts and charitable contributions at the fourth annual “It’s All About the Kids” Event. Calvo’s charitable efforts have garnered yearly participation in FLIPANY’s ‘’Chefs up Front’’, The Black’s Annual Gala benefiting at-risk kids, Common Threads and Verizon’s 4G for Charity and March of Dimes.
In April 2007, Calvo opened her restaurant Chef Adrianne’s Vineyard Restaurant and Wine Bar in Miami, Florida. The location of the restaurant has been a key factor because it is not located in a trendy area of Miami, but rather in the suburbs of West Kendall. Calvo is the only chef in Miami that offers “Dark Dining” at the restaurant every month without repetition of the menu. Dark Dining offers a sensual experience using blindfolds on guests to eliminate one sense by enhancing another- taste.
In 2009, Calvo became the spokesperson for Panda Kitchen and Bath, a Miami, Florida-based leader in the multi-million dollar kitchen and bath remodeling market. In addition, Calvo has participated in the Food Network’s South Beach Wine and Food Festival for the past four years as well as many renowned events such as ‘”Dali Miami” and “Miami Beach International Fashion Week”.
In 2013, Chef Adrianne Calvo won the “Master Holiday Chef Challenge”, Calvo being the youngest of the 14 competitors and one of two females. The Master Holiday Chef Challenge is a national chef competition that features 14 prominent chefs from major cities across the U.S. including Chicago, New York City, and San Francisco. The chefs competed against each other to create innovative dishes by using varieties of cheeses such as Alouette Cheese, Chavrie Fresh Goat Cheese, and Île-de-France Cheese.
Since Calvo’s role as the spokesperson for Panda Kitchen and Bath, she has attained increasing television exposure. She now has weekly spots on NBC’s “6 in the Mix” and Univision as well as countless segments with Clear Channel. She also appeared on an episode of the Chopped which aired on October 25, 2011. In 2013, Calvo starred on Foodable TV’s “Food as a Lifestyle” to give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to be a restaurant owner and an award winning chef. Calvo continues to work in new concepts for her restaurant and other interesting projects. With two books already published, “Maximum Flavor” and “Driven by Flavor Fueled by Fire”, Calvo is currently preparing a third book to be published at the end of 2014.
In today’s culture of achievement,
the drive for external success and attention is so fierce there's little time
to cultivate inner depth. We're taught to be assertive, to master skills, to
broadcast our brand, to get likes, to get followers. We’ve become a self-preoccupied
society; and the noise, the fast and shallow communications, makes it hard to
hear the quiet voices that steer us beyond our immediate needs. In this elegant interweaving
of politics, spirituality, psychology, and confessional, New York Times bestselling author David Brooks’ The Road to Character urges us to
confront the meaning of true fulfillment.
Brooks separates two sorts of
virtues, resume virtues and eulogy virtues. Resume virtues are the skills you bring to the marketplace--wealth, fame, status
and a great career. Eulogy virtues are
the things people will say about you at your funeral-- these virtues are driven by a spiritual urge not only to do
good but to be good--to be honest, loving, steadfast, and integrated at the
core. Most of us would
say that eulogy virtues are more important than the resume ones, but not the ones we
think about the most.
did we become a culture of the Big Me? Brooks looks to the post-WWII years when
people wanted to escape from the shackles of self-restraint and subjects like
sin and depravity. They were ready to put scarcity and thrift behind them. Positive Psychology and other movements came
to the fore, and, while these movements weren’t illegitimate, Brooks believes
they went too far and have put us out of balance. He argues that the central fallacy of modern
life is that The Big Me –the Culture of Achievement, our total focus on resume
virtues as opposed to eulogy virtues – can lead to true fulfillment. But it’s only by cultivating eulogy virtues
that we can get there and, unfortunately, we’ve lost the vocabulary and means
to do this.
does not offer a seven-point program on finding inner worth, instead, he makes
the point that we do not learn through moral lecture but through emulation and
inspiration. Citing an array of history’s
greatest thinkers and leaders—from St. Augustine and Dorothy Day to Dwight
Eisenhower and Samuel Johnson—Brooks traces how these men and women were able
to face their weaknesses and transcend their flaws. Each choosing to embrace one simple but
counterintuitive truth: in order to fulfill yourself, you must learn how to
news of this book is that it is okay to be flawed, since everyone is. Sin and
limitation are woven through our lives. Brooks writes, “we are all stumblers,
and the beauty and meaning of life are in the stumbling… Joy comes as a gift
when you least expect it. At those fleeting moments you know why you were put
here and what truth you serve. You may not hear the orchestra’s delirious swell
or see flashes of crimson and gold, but you will feel a satisfaction, a
silence, a peace—a hush. Those moments are the signs and the blessings of a
Eye-opening and deeply personal, The Road to Character proves that it is how we want
to be remembered – and not what we put on our resumes – that truly matters.
This is David Brooks’ most powerful and revolutionary book yet.

Un evento organizado en colaboración con el Centro Cultural Español
El Museo Imparable. Sobre institucionalidad genuina y blanda presenta a un nuevo espécimen cultural, un monstruo liberado (y liberal) que ha ocupado el espacio histórico de los museos para elevarse como instrumento de la política del crecimiento y la economía progresista. Su nacimiento da cuenta de la polarización vigente que están padeciendo los museos como dispositivos para la administración del imaginario en un mundo escindido entre la eficiencia comercial y el derecho al conocimiento. El ensayo ha sido redactado por su autor durante el último año, a caballo entre Europa y Estados Unidos, a consecuencia de la actual negociación que vive la museografía contemporánea en el marco de las inteligencias del consenso global. Reúne un total de cinco breves textos inéditos que se encuentran en un algún lugar crítico entre la antropología cultural y los estudios visuales, describiendo la negociación tensa y constante que está atravesando la política del imaginario corporativo internacional.
