The prize : who's in charge of America's schools? by Dale Russakoff( Recording )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Mark Zuckerberg announced in front of a cheering Oprah audience his $100 million pledge to transform the Newark Schools--and to solve the education crisis in every city in America--it looked like a huge win for then-mayor Cory Booker and Governor Chris Christie. But their plans soon ran into a constituency not so easily moved--Newark's key education players, fiercely protective of their billion-dollar-per-annum system. It's a prize that, for generations, has enriched seemingly everyone, except Newark's students
Life on the edge : the coming of age of quantum biology by Johnjoe McFadden( Recording )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jim Al-Khalili and Johnjoe Macfadden offer insights into the biggest puzzle of all: what is life? -- Life is the most extraordinary phenomenon in the known universe; but how did it come to be?

The full catastrophe : travels among the new Greek ruins by James Angelos( Recording )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A transporting, good-humored, and revealing account of Greece's dire troubles. In recent years, small Greece, often associated with ancient philosophers and marble ruins, whitewashed villages and cerulean seas, has been at the center of a debt crisis that has sown economic and social ruin, spurred panic in international markets, and tested Europe₂s decades-old project of forging a closer union. James Angelos makes sense of contrasting images of Greece, a nation both romanticized for its classical past and castigated for its dysfunctional present. It goes beyond the transient coverage in the daily headlines to deliver an enduring and absorbing portrait of modern Greece

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
