    The Interpretation of Diversified Education

    There is a battle going on in the American classroom, while an educational war is going on throughout the United States academic field!

    The question arises: is teaching today oriented towards a student-centered curriculum or emphasizes on an exterior technological approach without no cognitive thinking involved.?

    Second question: is the behavior in the classroom influenced by introverted cognitive thinking or outside environmental forces such as cultural diversity, language culture that come into play and collide with the inside cognitive forces in the classroom creating a hurricane of academic diversity in learning.

    How can a teacher impart knowledge in a multicultural, multi-intelligence classroom, and what are the issues involved that are pertinent to this educational dilemma? Today school academic policies advocate a technological approach to learning, leaving the teacher in most cases as a monitor or proctor of a on line classroom setting. This book addresses such issues in order to understand the complexity of American Education.

    In 2008, when Barack Obama was elected president of the United States, the element of ethnic bias, which had been lying beneath the social surface, suddenly reared its head. A shock was felt throughout the bigoted European American landscape that signaled a dramatic change in the social structure of America. An African American had been elected president of the United States! Since the founding fathers set the system of white supremacy and black inferiority in motion, the notion of an African American becoming president was the last expectation of those who felt a sense of loss from the event. Progress in becoming first-class citizens for African Americans has been like riding a handcranked elevator that stopped on each floor of a thirteen-story building. The primary stumbling block confronting African Americans has been called racism or the system of white supremacy and black inferiority. The one lesson America needs to learn is, racism cannot be defeated. This book examines the history of the system from the founding fathers to the twenty-first century with emphasis on how and why the system will disappear.

  • Robert Buckingham -  Trafficking


    Have you ever wondered how we age and why we get sick? Trafficking, the third book in a trilogy that includes Hazing Aging and Rejuvenation!, exposes the chronic inflammatory underworld and how it does its dirty business to transform end organ interstitial spaces into a sea of diseases. The book clarifies how this transition is evoked, how it disables the signaling apparatus of the protective capillary cells, and then proceeds to dismantle all of the cells within the interstitial space that capillaries are friendly to. In the end, after mission accomplished, the interstitial space footprint now belongs to chronic inflammation and the anti-organ. In this final apocalypse, capillary cells have long since stopped dancing, and their feedback loop signals to the allied partners have been replaced by rogue influences. White blood cells, cytokines, platelets, and immunoglobulins within the darkened corners of end organ interstitial spaces now belong to chronic inflammation. The interstitial spaces becomes barren and lifeless as we no it. A perfect backdrop for disease venues, pain, fatigue and aging. It is not too long afterword, that the end organ takes a slit to the throat.
