The Songs of the Reed by Rumi: A Hermeneutical Perspective

Lulu Press, Inc
Free sample

The present book encompasses all 23 English-translated versions of "The Songs of The Reed", the first 18 couplets of Masnavi Manavi, Book I by Rumi, the greatest Iranian Mystical poet, called Nei Name, from 1772 to 2015 and offers a hermetical model of refreshed innovation to shed some light of those aspects of any given literary text unknown or feebly-explored hitherto. It should not go unsaid that the proposed model provides copious examples to a better and more profound appreciation of these newly examined dimensions. Even though only one form of literary text, poetry, was dealt with through this model, it would be a gross underestimate to relegate its functionality to this only genre. However, as there are and will be infinite answers to any given question, the author firmly stipulates that the proposed model is far from perfect and hopes it would spur the interested readers into making attempt to reconstruct the model and improve its effectiveness.

Linda Darling-Hammond
In her award-winning book, Linda Darling-Hammond-renowned researcher, policy advisor, and educational leader-contends that improving America's performance in the global economy is closely tied to closing the minority-majority achievement gap at home. Today in the United States only 1 in 10 low-income kindergarteners goes on to graduate from college. At a time when education matters more than ever, the U.S. high school graduation rate has dropped from first in the world to the bottom half of rankings for comparable nations. While such sobering facts inform her new book, the author focuses on the successes of effective school systems in the U.S. and abroad in order to develop a clear and coherent set of policies that can be used to create high-quality and equitable schools. Drawing on her broad experience, Darling-Hammond examines the roots of our modern education system and shows how the skills required for our 21st-century global economy cannot be learned in traditional education systems, which have been in place since the early 1900s. She identifies an "opportunity gap" that has evolved as new kinds of learning have become necessary - a gap where low-income students, students of color, and English language learners often do not have the same access as others to qualified teachers, high-quality curriculum, and well-resourced classrooms. After setting the stage on current conditions in the United States, Darling-Hammond offers a coherent approach for effective reform that focuses on creating successful systems, inducting and supporting quality teachers, designing effective schools, establishing strong professional practice, and providing equitable and sufficient resources. The Flat World and Education lays out what the United States needs to do in order to build a system of high-achieving and equitable schools that ensures every child the right to learn.

Darling-Hammond is the Charles E. Ducommun Professor of Education at Stanford University, a chief education advisor to President Obama, Co-Director of the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education, and Founding Director of the School Redesign Network at Stanford.

It didn’t take long for students around the world to realize that anatomy texts just don’t get any better than Gray’s Anatomy for Students. Only in its 2nd edition, this already popular, clinically focused reference has moved far ahead of the competition and is highly recommended by anyone who uses it. A team of authors with a wealth of diverse teaching and clinical experience has updated and revised this new edition to efficiently cover what you’re learning in contemporary anatomy classes. An improved format, updated clinical material, and remarkable artwork by renowned illustrators Richard Tibbitts and Paul Richardson make anatomy easier than ever for you to master. Unique coverage of surface anatomy, correlative diagnostic images, and clinical case studies demonstrate practical applications of anatomical concepts. And, an international advisory board, comprised of more than 100 instructors, ensures that the material is accurate, up to date, and easy to use.Uses more than 1,000 innovative original illustrations— by renowned illustrators Richard Tibbitts and Paul Richardson—to capture anatomical features with unrivalled clarity, and makes body structures easy to locate and remember from one illustration to another through consistent use of color. Includes over 300 clinical photographs, including radiological images depicting surface anatomy and common clinical applications of anatomic knowledge. Presents an organization by body region that parallels the approach used in most of today’s anatomy courses. Features conceptual overviews summarizing each body region's component parts, functions, and relationship to other bodily organs. Uses clinical cases to underscore the real-life relevance of the material.Features a rewritten abdomen section for greater clarity. Provides updates and revisions to clinical material to provide you with the absolute latest knowledge in the field. Includes expanded discussions of cranial nerves for added clinical relevancy.

What animal would provide Sara’s favorite kind of breakfast cereal? What part of a man’s face means he’ll have a long life? What happened to the golf balls that Superman hit at the driving range? I wrote these 500 short stories (only 150 words each!) for English learners, primarily for beginner to intermediate levels. However, advanced learners can also enjoy the subtleties of many of the stories. The stories are for all English learners, regardless of what their first language is (even if it’s English!). Each story stems from news events, my own and others’ personal experiences, and/or my imagination. Many stories contain references to New York City, where my wife and I are lucky enough to live. ...[Teachers: The Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level and Flesch Reading Ease Score follow each story title. These two measures can guide learners who wish to start with the easiest stories and work their way up to the hardest stories. Teachers and parents can use these measures to guide their students and children. Grade Levels range from 0.1 to 6.5 (kindergarten to sixth grade), and Reading Ease Scores range from 100 to 62.8 (easiest to hardest). The two measures correlate inversely, and generally, with each other. Sentences are short, averaging 7.2 words for all stories.]... The stories are slices of everyday life, with fantasy thrown in here and there. Some story titles are: Hairy Ears; When 47 Equals 50; Where Did the Mustard Go?; A Dangerous Light Bulb; Superman at the Driving Range; Feel the Bananas; I Love New York City!; Till Death Do Us Part; I Hate My Name; Pink Doesn’t Mean He’s Gay; The Bi-Coastal Cat; The Cow with Two Tails; A Genie in a Bottle; A Big, Fat NYC Cookie; A Lucky Blind Person; The Dangerous Paper Clip; Smoker Seeks Nonsmoker; That “Old People” Smell; Mom the Matchmaker; and New, Improved EZ English. Just so you’ll have an idea of what the stories are like, here’s the first story: 1. Eat, Sleep, and Think Burgers 2.1, 91.3 Burger Queen flew Billy and his Bronx coworkers to its training center. After returning, Billy told his cousin about his trip. “Boy, was it great! I made tons of money in overtime. We were in training 12 days straight. We worked almost 16 hours a day. We learned how to make ten new menu items. You’ll see them on the menu next month. Everything was free! I had my own private room in the hotel. The food was fantastic. The hotel had six different restaurants. I ate all I could eat three times a day. I can’t wait to go back there again.” Jill asked, “Go back where? Where did you go?” He said, “They said we were in Texas.” She asked, “They ‘said’? Where in Texas? What city?” He said, “I don’t know. I didn’t even see a city. All I saw were the hotel and the training center.” Like many of the other stories, this one is based on fact. “Billy” loves his job. When he told me this story, he hadn’t been outside of NYC since moving here from his native country. He didn’t seem the least bit bothered that he hadn’t seen more of Texas. He thoroughly enjoyed the training, the hotel room, the food, and the money. When I asked the Brooklyn resident if he’d visited the Statue of Liberty yet, he smiled and said he was too busy. We all have our priorities and interests, which often change over the years. I think someday, after Billy owns his own “Burger Queen” or two, he might visit the Statue of Liberty—with his children or grandchildren. These stories first appeared on my website, www.eslyes.com, which contains 1,600 stories and dialogues that I wrote. Accompanying them are Exercises and/or Audio. One reason I wrote these 150-word stories is so teachers could easily print the stories onto one page. Each story is only one paragraph, even if it contains quoted conversation. I have a master’s in Education and taught ESL to adults in Pasadena, CA for 20 years. I hope these stories will become one small part of the education and entertainment of English learners everywhere. —Mike Carlson, April 2014
