DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

In “a brilliant antidote to all the…false narratives about pot” (American Thinker), an award-winning author and former New York Times reporter reveals the link between teenage marijuana use and mental illness, and a hidden epidemic of violence caused by the drug—facts the media have ignored as the United States rushes to legalize cannabis. Recreational marijuana is now legal in nine states. Advocates argue cannabis can help everyone from veterans to cancer sufferers. But legalization has been built on myths—that marijuana arrests fill prisons; that most doctors want to use cannabis as medicine; that it can somehow stem the opiate epidemic; that it is beneficial for mental health. In this meticulously reported book, Alex Berenson, a former New York Times reporter, explodes those myths, explaining that almost no one is in prison for marijuana; a tiny fraction of doctors write most authorizations for medical marijuana, mostly for people who have already used; and marijuana use is linked to opiate and cocaine use. Most of all, THC—the chemical in marijuana responsible for the drug’s high—can cause psychotic episodes. “Alex Berenson has a reporter’s tenacity, a novelist’s imagination, and an outsider’s knack for asking intemperate questions” (Malcolm Gladwell, The New Yorker), as he ranges from the London institute that is home to the scientists who helped prove the cannabis-psychosis link to the Colorado prison where a man now serves a thirty-year sentence after eating a THC-laced candy bar and killing his wife. He sticks to the facts, and they are devastating. With the US already gripped by one drug epidemic, Tell Your Children is a “well-written treatise” (Publishers Weekly) that “takes a sledgehammer to the promised benefits of marijuana legalization, and cannabis enthusiasts are not going to like it one bit” (Mother Jones).

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Passover is among the most widely observed holidays for American Jews. During this festival of redemption, Jewish families retell the biblical story of Exodus using a ritual book known as a haggadah, often weaving modern tales of oppression through the biblical narrative. References to the Holocaust are some of the most common additions to contemporary haggadot. However, the parallel between ancient and modern oppression, which seems obvious to some, raises troubling questions for many others. Is it possible to find any redemptive meaning in the Nazi genocide? Are we adding value to this unforgivable moment in history? Liora Gubkin critiques commemorations that violate memory by erasing the value of everyday life that was lost and collapse the diversity of responses both during the Shoah and afterward. She recounts oral testimonies from Holocaust survivors, cites references to the holiday in popular American culture, and analyzes examples of actual haggadot. Ultimately, Gubkin concludes that it is possible and important to make a space for Holocaust commemoration, all the time recognizing that haggadot must be constantly revisited and “performed.”

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

One out of seven children will lose a parent before they are 20. The statistics are sobering, but they are also a call for preparedness. However, pastors and counselors of all types are often at a loss when dealing with a grieving child. Talking to adults about death and grief is difficult; it's all the more challenging to talk to children and teens. The stakes are high: grieving children are high-risk for substance abuse, promiscuity, depression, isolation, and suicide. Yet, despite this, most of these kids grow up to be normal or exceptional adults. But their chance to become healthy adults increases with the support of a loving community. Supporting grieving children requires intentionality, open communication, and patience. Rather than avoid all conversations on death or pretend like it never happened, normalizing grief and offering support requires us to be in-tune with kids through dialogue as they grapple with questions of “how” and “why.” When listening to children in grief, we often have to embrace the mystery, offer love and compassion, and stick with the basics. The author says, "We don’t have to answer the why and how for them, but we can assure our children that God is with us as we suffer. We can do so by doing good for others and pointing out all of those moments when someone has done something good for us. I believe that most of the time that’s as far as we will get, and that is okay."

Drawing on the latest research in brain development and education theory, Beyond Intelligence is a must-read for today’s parents and educators.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

TELL YOUR CHILDREN AND RELATIVES ABOUT Marijuana (Cannabis): Organic name: Cannabis sativa Other normal or road names: Maryjane, weed, pot, spice, bud, dope, grass, ganja, ongoing. There are more than 300 road names for pot. This book (Tell Your Children And Relatives) will in general uncover the peril in commercializing and Sanctioning Marijuana as it is said to cause suspicion (because of high THC) and triggers basic psychosis that much of the time can prompt uncontrolled savagery. The utilization of cannabis is much of the time followed to cultist, hoodlums, solidified lawbreakers, and fear monger and to offer responses to the numerous inquiries (the impacts of secondhand exposure to cannabis smoke, Its impact on driving, its impact during pregnancy and breastfeeding, Its consequences for the lungs, long haul impact on the mind, addictiveness, clinical use among others) being asked particularly as it influences youngsters. Cannabis is a green, earthy, or dark combination of dried, destroyed leaves, and blossoms of the hemp plant Cannabis sativa. Maryjane is utilized as a psychoactive recreational medication, for certain clinical afflictions and for strict and otherworldly purposes. Numerous states in the US have now legitimized weed for clinical as well as recreational use. Notwithstanding, as indicated by government law, the ownership of pot (cannabis) is as yet illicit in the US, besides inside affirmed research settings. The fundamental dynamic synthetic in weed is THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive fixing. The most noteworthy centralizations of THC are found in the dried blossoms, or buds. THC from the cannabis follows up on explicit receptors in the cerebrum, called cannabinoid receptors, beginning a chain of cell responses that at long last lead to happiness or "high". The sensation of a casual state, rapture, and an improved tangible observation may happen. With higher THC levels in the individuals who are not used to the impacts, a few people may feel restless, distrustful, or have a fit of anxiety. Weed's solidarity is associated with the measure of THC it contains and the impacts on the client rely upon the strength or intensity of the THC. Various strains will contain various degrees of THC. By and large, the THC content in marijuana has been expanding since the early 70s, when it contained generally 10% THC.
