Book Description :

The definitive career guide for grad students, adjuncts, post-docs and anyone else eager to get tenure or turn their Ph.D. into their ideal job Each year tens of thousands of students will, after years of hard work and enormous amounts of money, earn their Ph.D. And each year only a small percentage of them will land a job that justifies and rewards their investment. For every comfortably tenured professor or well-paid former academic, there are countless underpaid and overworked adjuncts, and many more who simply give up in frustration. Those who do make it share an important asset that separates them from the pack: they have a plan. They understand exactly what they need to do to set themselves up for success. They know what really moves the needle in academic job searches, how to avoid the all-too-common mistakes that sink so many of their peers, and how to decide when to point their Ph.D. toward other, non-academic options. Karen Kelsky has made it her mission to help readers join the select few who get the most out of their Ph.D. As a former tenured professor and department head who oversaw numerous academic job searches, she knows from experience exactly what gets an academic applicant a job. And as the creator of the popular and widely respected advice site The Professor is In, she has helped countless Ph.D.’s turn themselves into stronger applicants and land their dream careers. Now, for the first time ever, Karen has poured all her best advice into a single handy guide that addresses the most important issues facing any Ph.D., including: -When, where, and what to publish -Writing a foolproof grant application -Cultivating references and crafting the perfect CV -Acing the job talk and campus interview -Avoiding the adjunct trap -Making the leap to nonacademic work, when the time is right The Professor Is In addresses all of these issues, and many more.

Book Description :

Truths are best remembered when accompanied by good stories. This is a good story, and the truths it teaches are powerful. Using any of them will pay rich rewards. The story is about Peter, a very bright student studying physics. His physics professor is a brilliant teacher, innovative, and downright mysterious! One saving factor is Mrs. McDs famous chocolate chip cookies, and these the Professor shares generously with his students. Peter discovers there is more to the Professor than meets the eye. That something more soon involves Peter in an amazing adventure. Unknown to Peter, and unknown to me when I started to write the story, it also involves a young lady who joins the adventure. Other books by the author that might interest you are: How Can I Believe What Cant Be Believed: Genesis 1-3? and Youve Got to Know the Territory Before You Pray. Both are published by Westbow Press.

Destiny and Deliberation

ISBN : 0191511129
Language : En, Es, Fr & De

GET BOOK

Book Description :

Jonathan Kvanvig presents a compelling new work in philosophical theology on the universe, creation, and the afterlife. Organised thematically by the endpoints of time, the volume begins by addressing eschatological matters—the doctrines of heaven and hell—and ends with an account of divine deliberation and creation. Kvanvig develops a coherent theistic outlook which reconciles a traditional, high conception of deity, with full providential control over all aspects of creation, with a conception of human beings as free and morally responsible. The resulting position and defense is labeled "Philosophical Arminianism," and deserves attention in a broad range of religious traditions.

Book Description :

The Jewish religion is one of the major faiths of the world yet one of the least understood. In a wide-ranging and accessible guide for the general reader Rabbi Naftali Brawer outlines the major themes and history of over 5,000 years of Jewish faith from its Abrahamic origins and the foundations of Jerusalem to the eras of exile, diaspora, and persecution. From ritual and practise to faith and politics, the theology and history of Judaism are bound together. Brawer argues that Judaism is poised between heaven and earth. On the one hand it calls on its adherents to transcend the material world through ritual and prayer: on the other hand Judaism positively celebrates joys of food, family and society. Through this seeming paradox, Brawer explores the nature and characteristics of faith - God and Man, Torah, Mitzvah, the Jewish People and the Land of Israel. He also shows how ritual and practise punctuate Jewish existence, from daily prayers to the rites of passage that chart a lifetime.

THE PROFESSOR WITH MANY FACES Two decaying corpses are found buried on campus. A bizarre chemistry professor, a developing international conspiracy, and suspected sabotage of a war production factory confront Sam and Howie when they enroll as freshmen at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana. The year is 1944 and the United States is at war with the Axis powers. When Sam and Howie discover written communications during their chemistry classes that appear to be coded messages they attempt to decipher the baffling combinations of letters. Ominous and life-threatening events then develop that include Nazi agents, escaped German P.O.W. s, and Spade Digger, the rather odd owner of a nearby mortuary. The county sheriff, his inept deputy, the F.B.I. and the U.S. Office of Strategic Services are all involved in the attempt to solve this complicated and threatening intrigue. Will Sam's romantic interest in Ginny, his long time heartthrob, survive the tensions of war? And will Howie's new-found love continue to blossom? Will Sam and Howie be able to survive the academic challenges at Taylor and at the same time overcome the hair-raising gauntlet of circumstances facing them as they attempt to expose The Professor with Many Faces? You will have to read every chapter to find out.
