The Night Stalkers : [top secret missions of the U.S. Army's Special Operations Aviation Regiment] by Michael J Durant( Recording )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the authors of the bestselling In the Company of Heroes come the thrilling, never-before-heard stories of the Army's elite aviation unit, the most daring and professional helicopter crews in the world. In his first book, Michael Durant told his harrowing tale of being shot down in his Blackhawk over Mogadishu and held captive by a Somali warlord. It was a remarkable account, particularly because Special Operations pilots are notoriously reticent-they don't talk about their missions, at least not to anyone outside their small community. But now, with the publication of The Night Stalkers, Durant and Steven Hartov shed a fascinating light on these mysterious super commandos and take readers into a world they have only imagined. From Iran to Grenada to Iraq, the 160th SOAR (A) has been at the point of the spear and in the thick of combat, delivering and supporting Delta operators, Rangers, and SEAL teams to any target, at any point on the globe, in all weather-night or day. Simply put, they are the best of the best, and here for the first time are their hair-raising true stories of battle, capture, victory, and loss

A comparison of simultaneous versus sequential meal presentation with picky eaters by Colleen M Whelan( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study extends the research on the effects of simultaneous and sequential food presentation methods with children who are picky eaters. An age-appropriate sized portion of non-preferred food (NPF) was presented as an "appetizer" before the participant's preferred food (PF) was presented. Participants were required to consume their NPF before gaining access to their PF (i.e., dinner). This Appetizer Presentation Method is compared to a simultaneous presentation method called, Total Meal Presentation. In the Total Meal Presentation, a whole portion of both foods were presented together on the same plate and the participants were allowed to eat what they choose. Three participants, between ages 3 to 6, participated in this study. The Appetizer Presentation Method, was effective in increasing consumption of NP foods for two of the three participants

College resiliency : how summer bridge programs influence persistence in full-time, first-generation minority college students by Michael J Durant( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this phenomenological study was to explore the lived experiences of first-year, first-generation minority students who participated in a pre-college summer bridge program before the start of their first semester in college. Specifically, the study explored the experiences of the students and how the social and academic preparation in the program affected their persistence from freshman to sophomore year. By means of phenomenology, the sample was purposefully selected to include five to eight collegiate students attending a public, urban, historically Black college or university on the east coast. The university has an enrollment of approximately 4,000 students. The researcher conducted one-on-one semi-structured interviews to gain an understanding of common themes among the participants experiencing this phenomenon. The study identified, documented and highlighted the strengths and perceived areas of weakness of the summer bridge program. Within the study, and outlined in the current literature, are detailed strategies and interventions used in summer bridge programs that directly affect first-generation minority student persistence. Resiliency Theory formed the theoretical framework that guided both the literature review and research question. In order for this phenomenon to be examined, there was a central research question employed: How does a summer bridge program contribute to the resilience of first-generation African American students and to their increased likelihood of persistence in higher education?
