Linked

Throwing children of different races together will not automatically foster friendships and deep connections. It takes effort to create multiculturalism awareness. This teen novel helps to initiate discussions on diversity, stereotyping and privilege. Same age, same height, same grade—they could have been identical twins, but they were not. Yet they lived in the same imperfect world with overwhelming family problems. Greg’s father had walked out after striking his mother. Steve’s father refused to leave after repeatedly abusing his mother. Each boy, in his own way, was begging for help. They lived in different homes. They had different personalities.  One was black and the other was white and they had switched!

 

The Intruders

What does a black, a Chinese, an Italian and a Puerto Rican Bronx teen have in common?—A thirst for excitement! They get their adventure and more when they set out to explore a cave in their neighborhood.

 

After falling down a ledge, the teens find that they have time-travelled three centuries into the future–in the middle of a war between tribes. Fortunately, one tribe accepts them.

 

The teenagers soon find that they have a unique and thrilling advantage in the conflict. They know the land, and the tribes, who had lost most modern technology, do not. Unfortunately, within weeks, their adventure became too real as both friends and enemies are getting killed! This is no longer fun. This is war!

Life After High School: Traits that Help & Traits that Hurt

This no-nonsense text offers strategies for dealing with life after high school. The guide explains positive and negative traits that can help or hinder teens in their post high school life and gives readers tips to identify the path to success and avoid the route that often leads to failure.

 

This book is only for those who want to succeed. It’s based on the premise that if you can figure out what personality type you are, then just perhaps you can move on to figuring out how to manage your life. Another focus is the recognition that sometimes it can take years of struggle, both financial and emotional, to realize your dream. However, regardless of the issues, what is important is the decisions that you make, and the path that you take, immediately after leaving high school.

The Dangers of Medical Radiation

RadiationIt is one of the ironies of medicine that radiation, as in x-rays, CT scans, radiation therapy and nuclear medicine can cause cancer yet can be used to detect and treat cancer. Perhaps because of this irony, most of us know very little about radiation dangers. Often we simply trust our doctors and caregivers to do what is right. In the majority of cases, this mutual trust system works well.

What happens when the system fails?

A recent study suggests that 15,000 people are projected to die within the coming years from the radiation they received from x-ray procedures!

How can we protect ourselves?

There have been reports of patients experiencing serious radiation overdose causing reddening of the skin, hair loss, cataract formation, or burns that cannot heal.

A lack of knowledge will not protect you!

Radiation cannot be seen, felt, tasted or heard and organ and tissue damage from radiation, and radiation-induced cancer, may take years or even decades to manifest.

 The dangers are real!

 Last year 3000 patients were treated for serious radiation burns at a wound care facility.

Read how to protect yourself from medical radiation!
