Summary

Don’t study harder—study smarter! A guide to academic success without unnecessary stress.   High school students are experiencing more pressure and stress than ever—and that can actually undermine their accomplishments. How can parents and teachers help them succeed not just in school, but in life? As someone with experience as both a university professor and a mom, Carolyn Zhao knows that the answer isn’t just to stay up later and study harder. It is possible—and important—to have fun and get A’s.   Sharing her method that transformed her own son from a struggling high school student into an Ivy League freshman, Zhao explains that a quality education is not just about achieving high marks, but becoming a well-rounded individual—and top universities and employers are actively seeking such students right now. She reveals:   Why developing your “Emotional Quotient” (EQ) is just as important as IQ How to combine intellectual learning with hands-on practice for best retention How to study less and achieve more Why playing sports is crucial for mind, body, and character How having fun develops our creative mind and highest potential How to develop a lifelong service mindset, and more

    Hundreds of sage culinary quotations from chefs, TV personalities, food critics, writers, actors, authors, poets, comedians, and more. 
     
    As American chef and food writer James Beard once said, "Food is our common ground, a universal experience." Everyone has a favorite food or meal, a method of cooking or baking they swear by, or a secret ingredient they utilize whenever possible. Food brings friends and family together every day, whether in their dining rooms or at tables in their favorite restaurants. 
     
    The Little Red Book of Kitchen Wisdom presents thoughts on the happenings in kitchens around the world, from the preparation of ingredients to the consumption of meals and everything in between. This book will include quotes from the most respected chefs in the world (such as Heston Blumenthal, Alice Waters, and Grant Achatz), recognizable celebrity chefs and television personalities (Alton Brown, Mario Batali, Cat Cora), food critics and writers (Michael Pollan, Ruth Reichl, Michael Ruhlman), and various actors, actresses, authors, comedians, and poets who like to eat and talk about it. 
     
    The mix of professionals and celebrities featured in this book will draw the attention of cooks at every level—professionals, home cooks, and hobbyists—and people who simply love to eat and drink.

    “I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food.” —W.C. Fields 
     
    “The shared meal elevates eating from a mechanical process of fueling the body to a ritual of family and community, from the mere animal biology to an act of culture.” —Michael Pollan 
     
    “A jazz musician can improvise based on his knowledge of music. He understands how things go together. For a chef, once you have that basis, that's when cuisine is truly exciting.” —Charlie Trotter

    The New York Times bestselling anti-vaccination advocate presents the case that the CDC covered up dangerous side effects of the MMR vaccine. 
     
    In November of 2013, Simpson University biology professor Dr. Brian Hooker got a call from Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) working in vaccine safety. Their conversations would lead to explosive revelations that top officials at the CDC engaged in a systematic cover-up of data showing that earlier administration of the MMR vaccine caused increased rates of autism in children, particularly African American males. 
     
    Science teacher and New York Times bestselling co-author of Plague of Corruption, Kent Heckenlively, was granted access to this trove of documents and uses them, as well as interviews with many of the key players in this debate, to tell the story of how vaccines have become a three-decades long disaster since passage of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act which gave pharmaceutical companies complete immunity for damages caused by their products.  
     
    This updated version contains new statements from Dr. Andrew Zimmerman, the government's main medical witness, that as early as 2007 government attorneys were aware that at least one third of autism cases were connected to vaccinations.
