Safe Infant Sleep: Expert Answers to Your Cosleeping Questions Audiobook

Safe Infant Sleep: Expert Answers to Your Cosleeping Questions

Author: James J. Mckenna, Ph.D. Narrator: Stephen Bowlby Release Date: August 2021

Why do current medical guidelines insist that cosleeping is unsafe? What is the difference between SIDS and SUID, and are they related to cosleeping? What should parents do to make a safe sleep space for their infant? If a family chooses to cosleep, how should they respond to reproach from friends, family, or medical professionals? In Safe Infant Sleep, the world's authority on cosleeping breaks down the complicated political and social aspects of sleep safety, exposes common misconceptions, and compares current recommendations to hard science. With the latest information on the abundant scientific benefits of cosleeping, Dr. James J. Mckenna informs listeners about the dangers of following over-simplified recommendations against the age-old practice, and encourages parents to trust their knowledge and instincts about what is and is not safe for their baby. This book offers a range of options and safety tips for your family's ideal cosleeping arrangement. These include variations of roomsharing and bedsharing, and the book introduces the concept of 'breastsleeping.' This term, coined by Dr. McKenna himself, is based on the inherent biological connection between breastfeeding and infant sleep. An essential resource for both parents and professionals, this book teaches you how to confidently choose a safe sleeping arrangement as unique as your family.

In this book, Hank Greely, a leading authority on law and genetics, tells the fascinating story of this human experiment and its consequences.

1620: A Critical Response to the 1619 Project Audiobook

1620: A Critical Response to the 1619 Project

Author: Peter W. Wood Narrator: Stephen Bowlby Release Date: February 2021

Peter Wood argues against the flawed interpretation of history found in the New York Times' 1619 Project and asserts that the true origins of American self-government were enshrined in the Mayflower compact in 1620. Was America founded on the auction block in Jamestown in 1619 or aboard the Mayflower in 1620? The controversy erupted in August 2019 when the New York Times announced its 1619 Project. The Times set to transform history by asserting that all the laws, material gains, and cultural achievements of Americans are rooted in the exploitation of African-Americans. Historians have pushed back, saying that the 1619 Project conjures a false narrative out of racial grievance.This book sums up what the critics have said and argues that the traditional starting point for the American story-the signing of the Mayflower Compact aboard ship before the Pilgrims set foot in the Massachusetts wilderness-is right. A nation as complex as ours, of course, has many starting points, including the Declaration of Independence in 1776. But if we want to understand where the quintessential ideas of self-government and ordered liberty came from, the deliberate actions of the Mayflower immigrants in 1620 count much more than the near accidental arrival in Virginia fifteen months earlier of a Portuguese slave ship commandeered by English pirates.Schools across the country have already adopted The Times' radical revision of history as part of their curricula. The stakes are high. Should children be taught that our nation is, to its bone, a 400-year-old system of racist oppression? Or should we teach children that what has always made America exceptional is its pursuit of liberty and justice for all?

Why Do We Still Have the Electoral College? Audiobook

Why Do We Still Have the Electoral College?

Author: Alexander Keyssar Narrator: Stephen Bowlby Release Date: January 2021

With every presidential election, Americans puzzle over the peculiar mechanism of the Electoral College. The author of the Pulitzer finalist The Right to Vote explains the enduring problem of this controversial institution. Every four years, millions of Americans wonder why they choose their presidents through the Electoral College, an arcane institution that permits the loser of the popular vote to become president and narrows campaigns to swing states. Most Americans have long preferred a national popular vote, and Congress has attempted on many occasions to alter or scuttle the Electoral College. Several of these efforts-one as recently as 1970-came very close to winning approval. Yet this controversial system remains. Alexander Keyssar explains its persistence. After tracing the Electoral College's tangled origins at the Constitutional Convention, he explores the efforts from 1800 to 2020 to abolish or significantly reform it, showing why each has failed. Reasons include the complexity of the electoral system's design, the tendency of political parties to elevate partisan advantage above democratic values, the difficulty of passing constitutional amendments, and, importantly, the South's prolonged backing of the Electoral College, grounded in its desire to preserve white supremacy in the region. The commonly voiced explanation that small states have blocked reform for fear of losing influence proves to have been true only occasionally. Keyssar examines why reform of the Electoral College has received so little attention from Congress for the last forty years, and considers alternatives to congressional action such as the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact and state efforts to eliminate winner-take-all. In analyzing the reasons for past failures while showing how close the nation has come to abolishing the institution, Why Do We Still Have the Electoral College? offers encouragement to those hoping to produce change in the twenty-first century.

The Myths of Creativity: The Truth About How Innovative Companies and People Generate Great Ideas Audiobook

The Myths of Creativity: The Truth About How Innovative Companies and People Generate Great Ideas

Author: David Burkus Narrator: Stephen Bowlby Release Date: October 2020

There is a mythology around creativity a hazy system of beliefs developed to try to understand what many believe to be incomprehensible. Because of this mythology, many businesspeople view creativity and innovation as vague and inaccessible, assuming that creativity happens through a largely transcendent process of inspiration to which only a select few are granted access. Fortunately for all of us who need to be more creative or lead our organizations through a creativity process, this is simply not the case, and The Myths of Creativity shows how anyone can drop the faulty conventional wisdom of creativity, understand the actual research behind how the creative process works, and ultimately generate impressive creative results. Each chapter of The Myths of Creativity debunks one erroneous assumption about the creative process: Chapter 1: The Sacred Myth: Creativity is not a distant inspiration given to a select few, but comes from within Chapter 2: The Breed Myth: Creativity is not a trait that only certain individuals hold and pass along Chapter 3: The Eureka Myth: Creative insight is not the sudden spark romanticized by stories of Newtons Apple or Archimedes bathtub, but involves a slow hunch Chapter 4: The Originality Myth: Most creative ideas are not unique or original, but are usually new combinations of older ideas. Chapter 5: The Expert Myth: Highly trained experts in a particular domain are sometimes incapable of generating creative insight. Instead, outsiders can provide the fresh perspective needed to creatively solve complex problems. Chapter 6: The Incentive Myth: Traditional incentives like bonuses, awards or other carrots provide little influence on creativity Chapter 7: The Lone Creator Myth: Most innovation is the product of a group of individuals and not any one person. Chapter 8: The Brainstorming Myth: Creativity requires more than merely the rapid generation of ideas. Chapter 9: The Cohesive Myth: Cohesive cultures and feel good environments can hinder innovation. Chapter 10: The Constraints Myth: While the traditional view of creativity is out-of-the-box or no limits, constraints can actually help enhance creativity in individuals and teams. Chapter 11: The Mousetrap Myth: Creative ideas and innovations dont experience immediate celebration like the proverbial better mousetrap. Instead, they often experience backlash as a first reaction. Chapter 12: The Moral Myth: Enhancing creativity is not always good. The chapters are filled with fresh case studies from Burkuss dissertation research. The Myths of Creativity is essential reading for anyone who feels like creativity is a struggle. It demystifies the creative process, debunks myths that may be holding back your creative juices, and ultimately will result in more and better ideas for you and your team.

A Brief Natural History of Civilization: Why a Balance Between Cooperation and Competition Is Vital  Audiobook

A Brief Natural History of Civilization: Why a Balance Between Cooperation and Competition Is Vital

Author: Mark Bertness Narrator: Stephen Bowlby Release Date: July 2020

A compelling evolutionary narrative that reveals how human civilization follows the same ecological rules that shape all life on Earth Offering a bold new understanding of who we are, where we came from, and where we are going, noted ecologist Mark Bertness argues that human beings and their civilization are the products of the same self-organization, evolutionary adaptation, and natural selection processes that have created all other life on Earth. Bertness follows the evolutionary process from the primordial soup of two billion years ago through today, exploring the ways opposing forces of competition and cooperation have led to current assemblages of people, animals, and plants. Bertness’s thoughtful examination of human history from the perspective of natural history provides new insights about why and how civilization developed as it has and explores how humans, as a species, might have to consciously overrule our evolutionary drivers to survive future challenges.
