This book is the work of 14 separate individuals who came together out of a mutual passion: that of teaching journalism. Although all the authors are college or university professors, almost all of them began their journalism journey in a high school classroom - most in a newspaper class, many in a yearbook class. Unfortunately, not all of them see the same enthusiasm for the subject that they remember. What they see in college classrooms are students who think they can jump right into being a sports analyst for a network or a fashion editor for a major publication, all as first jobs out of college. Many who come to higher education without a high school journalism experience come without the necessary critical thinking, creative thinking, collaborative and communication skills. That is the reasoning behind this book: not just to discover the state of high school journalism, but a way to help teachers improve their own skills. This work is for teachers who either are or will be teaching high school journalism and people who are interested in preserving the programs. The first part of this work is a look at the state of high school journalism in America in 2014. This includes a nationwide survey with the results in Section One. For teachers who want to argue for support in terms of newer technology, working with local professionals, additional certification or other issues, this section provides that information. Section Two was developed because it became apparent early on that many high school journalism teachers had no idea about the federal court laws which govern what they teach. The three chapters take teachers from the earliest history and laws through the Hazelwood decision and slightly beyond - cases that have significant impact on governance of scholastic news media. Section Three turns back to the classroom itself and discusses the basics of high school journalism, how outstanding programs have survived, teaching the 4Cs, how teachers can best use available workshops and incorporate more professional assistance in their classroom. The final section gives all the conclusions about what can be done to improve high school journalism, plus an annotated bibliography for anyone who wants to conduct further research in this subject, and brief biographical sketches of the authors and editors of this work. Also added is the original survey sent to 600 high school teachers. It is the sincere hope of the SPJ Education Committee that this work is of assistance to scholastic programs throughout the country

472 Days Captive of the Abu Sayyaf

In December 2011, the Australian world traveller, ex-member of the Australian Regular Army and university teacher Warren Richard Rodwell was kidnapped for ransom in the Mindanao region of the southern Philippines by a group of criminals claiming to be members of the notorious terrorist/insurgent organisation the Abu Sayyaf Group. This particular group had loose ties with other insurgent groups that were indulging in similar criminal activity in the greater Sulu Archipelago area including the Zamboanga peninsular – where Rodwell was abducted. Rodwell was kept prisoner for a total of 472 days making him the longest held Australian captive outside of official Prisoners-of-War (POWs). During his 472 days of captivity he was moved between various jungle hideouts in the Islands of Basilan and Tawi-Tawi, eventually being freed by his captors only a few kilometres from where he was originally kidnapped. His tale of survival is made all the more remarkable considering he endured an untreated gunshot wound and an almost starvation diet – losing over one third of his body weight – and was forced to walk and climb in oppressive heat and under constant threat of being beheaded. When he was finally released in March 2013 he was emaciated, physically and emotionally at the lowest point in his life, and totally bewildered. During his period of obligatory debriefing by both Philippine and Australian authorities, an amazing tale of survival unfolded. Rodwell’s determination to overcome all obstacles in his path to eventual freedom is the quintessence of all that is dear in life – life itself.

American Puritanism and the Defense of Mourning

Religion, Grief, and Ethnology in Mary White Rowlandson's Captivity Narrative

Mary White Rowlandwon, a New England Congregationalist minister's wife, was held captive by the Algonquin Indians during King Philip's War in 1676. Several years after she was ransomed and living among the British again she wrote a narrative of the captivity chronicling her experience in grief, love, resentment, and ethnic trauma. Breitwieser argues that this narrative undercuts the Puritan values Rowlandson attempted to uphold. He reveals where and how Rowlandson breaks with Puritan conventions. He points out that in American Puritan religious practice, real experiences were seen as siogns or emblems of moral abstractions. American Puritanism and the Defense of Mourning will be essential reading for all who study early American literature and culture.

Entrapped...Body, Mind and Soul depicts one of the most advanced cases of spousal abuse in the history of psychosis and hysteria. It is incessantly volatile, full of sadistic treatment and callused abuse, attesting to the total control some demonic abusers can achieve and the victims futile attempt to try to save someone far beyond salvation. The heinous deeds perpetrated by this psychopath result in a straight-from-hell experience not easily forgotten.

God Has a Plan

Through Jesus Christ, His Son - Are You Ready? the Holy Spirit and the Word of God Working Together

I believe this book declares what is happening in the spirit realm to activate the "spiritual antenna" of those in and outside the churches, and how God will gather His people together and pour out His Holy Spirit upon them to do His Will, in His Way. God wants an 'army' of ordinary people to play their part in His Final Battle for Souls. Security in God is vital, as is Faith to keep following Jesus -without being deceived and growing cold towards God. God wants to release His people into a SECOND ACT OF JESUS' RESURRECTION POWER to do His amazing works of Grace and Mercy. He wants us to be aware of the spiritual signs, which will continue to increase prior to Jesus' return, so that we are ready for when He does RETURN for HIS SPOTLESS BRIDE HIS CHURCH! Therefore, God wants us to STOP and LISTEN to Him! Personally, God has spoken to me since 1991 regarding "The Final Battle" and has gradually revealed more and more of His plans, but I firmly believe there is very much more revelation to be received by God's people and that this is only just the very beginning. The purpose of these revelations is to give vision and to give spiritual insight into the days and times in which we now live. It is to inform all people about the urgency of these times by alerting their spiritual reception to what God is planning to do in the coming days. In order for people to understand these times they will need to allow God to "give birth" in their hearts to HOPE, FAITH, LOVE, COMPASSION and VISION with an EXPECTANCY that God will do ALL that He says He will do. My prayer is that these revelations will encourage and give assurance of GOD's LOVE for ALL PEOPLE and, also, give warnings and opportunities to others to receive JESUS, GOD'S ONLY SON, as their SAVIOUR and LORD. Therefore, this book is a LETTER from GOD'S HEART addressed to those who: KNOW JESUS, who have been born of His Holy Spirit and are seeking to put His will first in their lives. HAVE KNOWN JESUS, but have lost contact with Him through disappointments, disillusionments, pain, hurt, rejection etc. HAVE KNOWN JESUS but who have fallen prey to lethargy and comfort, having been deceived that following Jesus means only to follow Him and live in the blessings (the good times), and not following Him in the "crucifixion" times (faith-building times), for during these times character growth and maturity can take place. HAVE KNOWN JESUS, but have fallen asleep and have become "spiritually dead" no longer able to hear the voice of their Shepherd calling them to come to Him. LEGALLY PRAISE HIM with their "head" and not with their "heart", as they are missing the point, missing out on their personal relationship with Jesus and missing out on fulfilling their potential and purpose in Him. HAVE HEARD ABOUT JESUS and believe in Him, and that He is the only Son of God, but do not see the need or urgency or relevance of receiving Him as Lord and Saviour of their lives. HAVE NEVER HEARD ABOUT JESUS, and about the Good News that was given to all mankind when Jesus died for ALL of our sins and arose from the dead on the third day, thereby being in a position of authority to remove ALL sin and opposition from the lives of all who will turn to Him in true repentance and with sincere regret for their wrong doings, however big or small, so that they can receive His Forgiveness and His Healing and Saving Love into their hearts and lives. MAY BE either complacent, financially secure, poor and needy, sick and dying, abused physically, mentally, emotionally, sexually, or those who may be the perpetrators of this abuse, those who are desperate and despairing, longing and groaning for moral and upright attitudes within our Nations, for which problems and difficulties JESUS IS the only answer. MAY BE plotting evil against those who follow Jesus, to turn from their course while there are still opportunities available to them. To su

The Reformation Made Easy

The history of the Reformation is a demonstration of one of the greatest revolutions that has ever been accomplished in human affairs by the sovereignty of God. In many respects the history of the Reformation is distinct from that of Protestantism. In the former everything bears the mark of a regeneration of the human race, of a religious and social change emanating from God himself through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Reformation was not a single moment in time where the stalwart reformer Martin Luther stood against the Roman Catholic Church at the Diet of Worms. Instead, in looking at the history of the Reformation, we find it to be a much more complex organism and the direct result of God's vast work of providence across continents and countries. Many times such a history is complex and difficult to wade through for the student. In this work, the Reformation is made easy.

Example in this ebook "That will do; place the cigars upon the table and then you can go." The speaker was Lord Throgmorten, a man of about thirty-six years of age, rather stout, with reddish hair and whiskers and cold, steel-gray eyes. He had just returned from a yachting cruise, upon which he had started upon his succession to the title about eighteen months before. The scene was his lordship's chambers in the Albany, and the time the night of the 22nd of July, 1893. Besides the speaker and the well-trained servant, who, in obedience to the order just given, occupied himself in fetching the silver cigar box from its accustomed place upon the sideboard, lighting the wax taper which stood by its side and placing them in front of his master, there were present two other persons. The man on his host's right near the fireplace, wearing spectacles and with the careworn look upon his features, was Mr. Percival Phelps, who had been his lordship's guest upon their recent cruise. He was a genial, dapper little man with inordinate vanity, and a slight stammer, when excited; with no income to speak of, save his stipend as a permanent clerk in the —— Office, a position that, his host said, "suited him down to the ground." The man facing him, and looking towards the window, though younger than either of the other two, was already coming into prominent notice and making a fair income as sub-editor of that popular paper "The Telescope." When the servant had left the room, the young man proceeded to address his host in measured tones. "Since I received your letter, I have been on tenter hooks to hear the story of this wonderful discovery. You wrote me only a bare line from Southampton on the 12th to say that you had had a pleasant trip, during which you had chanced on a most extraordinary find; and that you particularly wanted me to dine with you to-night and hear about it. Well, now the man's gone, you can fire off your intelligence. What is it: coins, fossils, bones, or buried treasure?" And the editor, refilling his glass with port, which he knew by experience was particularly good, settled himself in his chair in a less constrained attitude, and prepared to listen to his host's narration. Lord Throgmorten's reply was to rise from the table and with Mr. Phelps' aid, to bring from the further end of the room a box—covered with a cloth—whose weight, judging from the efforts required to lift it, was considerable. "There," said his lordship, reseating himself, "that is the discovery, and that," pointing to Mr. Phelps who, like his host, panting from his exertions, had resumed his seat, "is the discoverer." "The s-s-story first. Tell the story," said that gentleman, stammering in his excitement, while Lord Throgmorten prepared to remove the cover. The latter acceded to the suggestion, and began as follows, addressing his remarks to the editor, while Phelps sat by, giving confirmatory nods by way of emphasis, when occasion seemed to call for it. "You are aware that, last February twelvemonth, Phelps and myself started for Australia in my steam yacht the Osprey, for the purpose of visiting my property out there. With our voyage out my story has nothing to do; it was only when we had turned our nose homewards and on the 17th June that our adventure began. On that night we were sailing—not steaming, mind, because there was a fair wind and we wished to save our coal. To be continue in this ebook

The Journey of Existing Churches into the Emerging Culture In our fast-growing post-Christian, postmodern culture, the church often finds itself marginalized and ineffective in mission. The new emerging church is both hopeful and frightening compared to more traditional forms of Christianity. However, these “two churches” need each other. The Church in Transition presents honest stories of the failures and successes of a variety of transitioning fellowships.
