Changing Minds: How Aging Affects Language and How Language Affects Aging Audiobook

Changing Minds: How Aging Affects Language and How Language Affects Aging

Author: Richard Roberts, Roger Kreuz Narrator: Jonathan Yen Release Date: October 2019

We acquire our native language, seemingly without effort, in infancy and early childhood. Language is our constant companion throughout our lifetime, even as we age. Indeed, compared with other aspects of cognition, language seems to be fairly resilient through the process of aging. In Changing Minds, Roger Kreuz and Richard Roberts examine how aging affects language-and how language affects aging. Kreuz and Roberts report that what appear to be changes in an older person's language ability are actually produced by declines in such other cognitive processes as memory and perception. Some language abilities, including vocabulary size and writing ability, may even improve with age. And certain language activities-including reading fiction and engaging in conversation-may even help us live fuller and healthier lives. Kreuz and Roberts explain the cognitive processes underlying our language ability, exploring in particular how changes in these processes lead to changes in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. They consider, among other things, the inability to produce a word that's on the tip of your tongue-and suggest that the increasing incidence of this with age may be the result of a surfeit of world knowledge.

Who Says You're Dead?: Medical & Ethical Dilemmas for the Curious & Concerned Audiobook

Who Says You're Dead?: Medical & Ethical Dilemmas for the Curious & Concerned

Author: Jacob M. Appel, M.D. Narrator: Jonathan Yen Release Date: October 2019

Drawing upon the author's two decades teaching medical ethics, as well as his work as a practicing psychiatrist, this profound and addictive little book offers up challenging ethical dilemmas and asks listeners, What would you do? - A daughter gets tested to see if she's a match to donate a kidney to her father. The test reveals that she is not the man's biological daughter. Should the doctor tell the father? Or the daughter? - A deaf couple prefers a deaf baby. Should they be allowed to use medical technology to ensure they have a child who can't hear? - Who should get custody of an embryo created through IVF when a couple divorces? - Or, when you or a loved one is on life support, Who says you're dead? In short, engaging scenarios, Dr. Appel takes on hot-button issues that many of us will confront: genetic screening, sexuality, privacy, doctor-patient confidentiality. He unpacks each hypothetical with a brief reflection drawing from science, philosophy, and history, explaining how others have approached these controversies in real-world cases. Who Says You're Dead? is designed to defy easy answers and to stimulate thought and even debate among professionals and armchair ethicists alike.

How Charts Lie: Getting Smarter about Visual Information Audiobook

How Charts Lie: Getting Smarter about Visual Information

Author: Alberto Cairo Narrator: Jonathan Yen Release Date: October 2019

We've all heard that a picture is worth a thousand words, but what if we don't understand what we're looking at? Social media has made charts, infographics, and diagrams ubiquitous-and easier to share than ever. We associate charts with science and reason; the flashy visuals are both appealing and persuasive. Pie charts, maps, bar and line graphs, and scatter plots (to name a few) can better inform us, revealing patterns and trends hidden behind the numbers we encounter in our lives. In short, good charts make us smarter-if we know how to read them. However, they can also lead us astray. Charts lie in a variety of ways-displaying incomplete or inaccurate data, suggesting misleading patterns, and concealing uncertainty-or are frequently misunderstood, such as the confusing cone of uncertainty maps shown on TV every hurricane season. To make matters worse, many of us are ill-equipped to interpret the visuals that politicians, journalists, advertisers, and even our employers present each day, enabling bad actors to easily manipulate them to promote their own agendas. In How Charts Lie, data visualization expert Alberto Cairo teaches us to not only spot the lies in deceptive visuals, but also to take advantage of good ones to understand complex stories.

American Scripture: Making the Declaration of Independence Audiobook

American Scripture: Making the Declaration of Independence

Author: Pauline Maier Narrator: Jonathan Yen Release Date: September 2019

Maier describes the transformation of the Second Continental Congress into a national government, unlike anything that preceded or followed it, and with more authority than the colonists would ever have conceded to the British Parliament. In Maier's hands, the Declaration of Independence is brought close to us. She lets us hear the voice of the people as revealed in the other 'declarations' of 1776: the local resolutions-most of which have gone unnoticed over the past two centuries-that explained, advocated, and justified Independence and undergirded Congress's work. Detective-like, she discloses the origins of key ideas and phrases in the Declaration and unravels the complex story of its drafting and of the group-editing job which angered Thomas Jefferson. Maier also reveals what happened to the Declaration after the signing and celebration: how it was largely forgotten and then revived to buttress political arguments of the nineteenth century; and, most important, how Abraham Lincoln ensured its persistence as a living force in American society. Finally, she shows how by the very act of venerating the Declaration as we do-by holding it as sacrosanct, akin to holy writ-we may actually be betraying its purpose and its power.

What Anyone Can Do: How Surrounding Yourself with the Right People Will Drive Change, Opportunity, a Audiobook

What Anyone Can Do: How Surrounding Yourself with the Right People Will Drive Change, Opportunity, a

Author: Leo Bottary Narrator: Jonathan Yen Release Date: August 2019

In his 1976 book The Long Run Solution, Joe Henderson suggested that becoming truly accomplished at running (or at anything) doesn't typically require us to perform superhuman feats. In fact, success is frequently realized by those who simply do the things anyone can do that most of us never will. In What Anyone Can Do, with the help of Leo Bottary's Year of the Peer podcast guests, you'll discover that if you surround yourself with the right people, you'll do the things anyone can do far more often. And when you do that, you and the people around you will realize more of what you want out of business and life. It's that simple. The Power of Peers (2016) made a strong case for how and why formal peer groups are so effective. This book steps outside the formal peer group arena to examine all the important relationships we have in our lives (parents, teachers, spouses, mentors, children, mentees, etc.) and provides a practical approach and specific framework for harnessing their power for your benefit (and theirs). It's what anyone can do. You're anyone, right?

Empire of Borders: How the US is Exporting its Border Around the World Audiobook

Empire of Borders: How the US is Exporting its Border Around the World

Author: Todd Miller Narrator: Jonathan Yen Release Date: July 2019

The United States is outsourcing its border patrol abroad-and essentially expanding its borders in the process The twenty-first century has been an era of hardening borders-increased borderland patrols, surveillance, and militarization are widening the chasm between those who can vacation (or do business) where they please, and others whose movements are restricted by armed guards. But as journalist Todd Miller finds in Empire of Borders, the U.S. border is also becoming increasingly fluid, expanding thousands of miles outside of U.S. territory often to protect Washington's interests. In places like Argentina, Kosovo, Honduras, Jordan, and Afghanistan, U.S. border patrol works alongside local agents to block migrants, terrorists, drug runners, and smugglers from ever approaching the U.S. Empire of Borders traces the rise of this border regime, along with practices of 'extreme vetting' and the vast global industry for border and homeland security. But in visiting the Jordan/Syria border, as well as Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Kenya, Palestine, Mexico, and the Philippines, Miller finds instead a global war against the poor.

E Pluribus Unum: How the Common Law Helped Unify and Liberate Colonial America, 1607-1776 Audiobook

E Pluribus Unum: How the Common Law Helped Unify and Liberate Colonial America, 1607-1776

Author: William E. Nelson Narrator: Jonathan Yen Release Date: July 2019

From their inception, the colonies exercised a range of approaches to the law. While New England based its legal system around the word of God, Maryland followed the common law tradition, and New York adhered to Dutch law. Over time, though, the British crown standardized legal procedure to more uniformly and efficiently exert control over the Empire. But, while the common law emerged as the dominant system across the colonies, its effects were far from what English rulers had envisioned. E Pluribus Unum highlights the political context in which the common law developed and how it influenced the United States Constitution. In practice, the triumph of the common law over competing approaches gave lawyers more authority than governing officials. By the end of the eighteenth century, many colonial legal professionals began to espouse constitutional ideology that would mature into the doctrine of judicial review. In turn, laypeople came to accept constitutional doctrine by the time of independence in 1776. Nelson shows that the colonies' gradual embrace of the common law was instrumental to the establishment of the United States. Not simply a masterful legal history of colonial America, Nelson's magnum opus fundamentally reshapes our understanding of the sources of both the American Revolution and the Founding.
