For the next generation : a wake-up call to solving our nation's problems by Debbie Wasserman Schultz( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Congresswoman and Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz challenges the nation to resolve tough issues for future generations. America has witnessed the dangers that come with shortsightedness, she writes. If we want to ensure prosperity for ourselves and an improved way of life for young Americans, we have to change, starting now. We need to create jobs, turn around our economy, formulate a long-term energy solution, reform immigration policies, and enhance and expand health-care coverage. Yet these important issues have been sidelined by gridlock in a Congress that is too concerned about the next election to worry about the future. The group of Americans who have the most to lose from this dysfunction are the ones least represented in government: America's children. This book is one mother's challenge to her congressional colleagues and to the rest of the nation, to adopt a parent's perspective for doing right by our kids.--From publisher description

The spirit of invention : the story of the thinkers, creators, and dreamers who formed our nation by J. M Fenster( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An illustrated appreciation of America's spirit of invention, which introduces unique characters whose insistence on change for the better made America what it is today. This book is a fascinating examination of innovation as a driving characteristic of Americans from all eras and all walks of life. In this book we meet Gertrude Forbes, a sickly widow so poor she had to live in her aunt's attic, who overcame the odds to invent, among other things, an adjustable ironing board cover. We follow Cromwell Dixon, a fifteen-year-old from Columbus, Ohio, whose dreams of finding a way to fly inspired him to invent a bicycle-powered airship. We see John Dove, an African-American inventor, originating concepts integral to the compact disc. We learn about Purdue University, one of the earliest educational institutions to promote invention and engineering ideas. We eavesdrop on Thomas Edison in his laboratory in Menlo Park, New Jersey, and also find out about the beginnings of film colorization, a controversial process that adds tint to film. And we read about Luther Burbank and how he revolutionized plant breeding. The book even reviews the invention of illegal devices such as the "light wand," which induced slot machines to pay out on every spin, and we are introduced to a poker player who invented a "holdout" that allowed him to conceal cards in a shirt sleeve during games
