Why Dance, Why Not – A Book Review on Dancing

Over the years, I've been very impressed with what Sir Ken Robinson has to say about creativity in our schools. He explains the problem with rote memorization, and seems to speak with the aversion that most Americans have with the No Child Left Behind legislation (NCLB). Some of my friends have called the NCLB Legislation; the No Child Allowed to Advance directive. I guess in some regards I do agree with that observation. In one of Sir Ken Robinson's most famous TED Talk, he suggests that we ought to be teaching dance in our schools, yes dance.

Why you ask? Well, it is a creative exercise and it helps your brain develop and think. He's right and now neurologists know why. The nerve endings are attached to nerves which run up the spinal column and right into the brain, it's an extension of that system. In fact, if you'd like to learn more about all this, maybe I can save you some trouble in your personal research as I had recently asked myself some of these questions, trying very hard to confirm what many teachers and educators have speculated for decades. If this topic also intrigues you there are some very good books I'd like to recommend that you read;

1. "The Artful Mind: Cognitive Science and the Riddle of Human Creativity," edited by Mark Turner, Oxford University Press, New York, NY, 2006, 314 pages, ISBN: 978–0-19-530636-1.

This book is a compilation of academically peer reviewed articles and essays on the topic, much of which has taken all the old works of white dead men famous psychologists and merged it with modern day neuroscience. Some of which proves what we inherently already know and have readily observed in case studies, other essays challenge the status quo and knowledge we thought we believed turning everything on its head. A very important set of reads for sure, for anyone researching this topic.

2. "Dance / Movement Therapists in Action: A Working Guide to Research Options," edited by Robyn Flaum Cruz, Cynthia Florence Berrol, Charles Thomas Publishers, Springfield, IL, 233 pages, ISBN: 978-0-39-80750-40 .

Edited in a similar format, but the essays focus on what to do with all this new information and how to best utilize it for therapy. Not only does it do tremendous physical good, but it can be used creatively in therapy and learning to do wonders for cognitive ability, helping the student to overcome challenges and increase their ability to think. It all starts with a little dance. I hope when you get a change, you will choose to dance. Please consider all this and think on it.

"Outcasts United" Book Review

In 1997, Luma notified her parents she was staying in America. She came here at the age of 21. Her father was not happy with her decision. After graduating from college, she was determined to make it on her own.

In 2002, she got a job coaching girls' soccer at the local YMCA in Clarkston, Georgia. She stumbled upon boys playing a street pick-up game of soccer and felt she could make more of an impact with them. She quit her job and committed to starting a team with these boys. They named themselves the "Fugees".

Clarkston was initially resistant to the refugee newcomers. White people left and those who stayed were not welcoming. The police and mayor tried everything in their power to keep them in their place.

Over time, a few people began embracing diversity. A local grocer took advice from a Vietnamese girl who suggested he begin stocking the store with ethnic foods. A church renamed itself and welcomed all the groups. A new police chief righted wrongs. In 2009, the mayor's term ended.

Luma got an assistant named Tracy. The writer, Warren St. John shared their story. They got donations and hired two teachers to work with the team tutoring.

This book took a while to read because it went into the history of situations each of the players had come from. It does remind us of the difficulties refugees face. If we were in the same position, we would hope for kindness from someone.

I was blessed to have made a friend in 1999 with one of the "Lost Boys" of Sudan in Phoenix, Arizona. My daughter-in-law is from Sudan. God knew in 1999 when we met our friend that my son would marry a girl from that same country when he grew up.

In uncertain times, fear keeps us at a distance from the unfamiliar. Sometimes, events are out of out our control but we can miss out on opportunities by not getting to know refugees in our communities.

I love reading stories of people who made a difference in the lives of others. That kindness can have a ripple effect and multiply. Sometimes, it may be years before we find out how. I've witnessed it in my life. I hope to see more.

I thank God for those I've met and those I have yet to meet. Best wishes to everyone in this story.

Born to Win by Zig Ziglar and Tom Ziglar – Book Review

Synopsis of Content:

This is the latest book by the late master salesman and motivational speaker and writer Zig Ziglar and his son Tom Ziglar. Tom is now the CEO of the empire his father built over the past four decades.

Born to Win is divided into three parts: Planning to Win, Preparing to Win, and Expecting to Win.

In Part 1 Planning to Win there is a thorough discussion of developing your vision for where you want to go or what you want to accomplish and then how to set realistic and useful goals and how to implement them. Ziglar focuses on the importance of our Desire to accomplish our goals. He echoes the work of Napoleon Hill and others who have written about the critical importance of having vision and desire. He also discusses the six qualities he finds essential to winning: honesty, character, faith, integrity, love and loyalty.

In Part 2 Preparing to Win is about preparing yourself to win. It is about acquiring the knowledge, skills and experience you need to succeed. Included in this is the development of the disciplines needed to win and the need to associate with the right kinds of people who will help you and inspire you.

In Part 3 Expecting to Win you learn how worry is a fruitless and destructive emotion that we must defeat. Here you see the logical extension of the work done in Parts 1 and 2 to condition your mind with the correct attitudes and expectations. Here you learn the self-defeating thinking that you must banish from your mind.

Like all good success literature you will not find anything magical or “new” in this book. It is a distillation of the best of what has been written about success but presented through the unique lens of both author’s experience and reflection. Through their own life experience and that of others they have worked with they have seen what works and how it works and share that with the reader.

Balance

Ziglar emphasizes throughout the book the importance of achieving balance in our lives. This includes paying sufficient attention to our spiritual, physical and emotional needs. He deeply values family and friends and teaches that success is meaningless without spending time and effort in these areas. As he observes, there is nothing more pitiful than a rich man with no family or friends.

Ziglar gives more emphasis on spiritual development than many success writers do. He is a devout Christian and discusses how his faith changed his life and the vital role it plays in winning. He does not suggest you must be a Christian but rather whatever you believe you must feed that spiritual need to thrive.

Motivation

The book discusses motivation. He observes that motivation is as essential as food. People criticize motivational speakers like Ziglar because they say that motivational works only have a short term effect. Ziglar points out that a meal only as a short term effect. Just as we must eat every day to remain healthy we must seek motivation every day to remain motivated and on the road to winning. I have never seen a better explanation for the importance of continual motivation to feed our spirit.

For Zig and his son Tom success in life must be holistic and a work in progress. No one ever reaches the top really, they just keep getting closer. For the Ziegler’s “winning” is realizing fulfillment and success in this process.

Usefulness:

This book is very useful to anyone who seeks to succeed in life, in business or in any other worthy cause. You will learn from it and be motivated by it. Each time you re-read it you will get a further boost.

Readability/Writing Quality:

It is very well written. It is well organized and written in a style that is easy to follow. They use good illustrations and examples to show the principles they teach.

Notes on Authors:

Zig Ziglar is a master motivator who has spoken to millions of people worldwide, published 29 books and numerous digital products. He has worked with six US Presidents, world leaders and many Fortune 500 corporations.

Tom Ziglar, Zig’s son, is the CEO of Ziglar, Inc. and has worked for many years to carry his father’s message to people. He has worked especially hard to carry this message to third world nations.

Three Great Ideas You Can Use:

1. “You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want”. – Zig Ziglar. This has been Mr. Ziglar’s mission and mantra for decades. He has through his own experience proven it to be true.

2. Remember the formula by Frank Outlaw: Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; for it becomes your destiny.

3. “Being born to win is about planning, preparing and expecting to win. It is also about being the best you can be, no matter your job or profession”.

Book Review – Can You Make a Desert Tortoise Your Pet?

The desert tortoise is an endangered species in California, so you are not supposed to take them as pets, but if they wonder onto your property or dig under the fence to find shade and food, or make a home burrowing under the yard, you aren 't allowed to move them, unless you call in a special wildlife biologist to assist. It's quite a tricky endeavor. However, sometimes you can make them feel more at home and they make nice pets. Still, you might not wish to get too attached, eventually they decide to leave, and often don't return for a while, sometimes never.

There is quite a bit of difference between the males and females, and you can easily tell the difference. Males have an indentation underneath to which matches the shape of the shell of the females for mating, since the male mounts the female in this process. That's the easiest way to tell. If you see a desert tortoise, you might see a small sensor epoxied to the shell, don't worry it's a wildlife tracking device to help biologists learn more and protect the species habitat.

Wildlife field biologists remind us to always check under our car tires and cars if we are in their domain because they often seek shelter from the hot summer sun in the shade underneath. If you see a desert tortoise do not pick it up and move very slowly as not to upset it. If you do scare it or pick it up it might discharge its bladder where it stores water, this is very bad. If that happens it might be better of you lay it in some water to let it soak back into its system. And if you pick one up because it is on the road way, always put it back down facing the same direction, otherwise it becomes disoriented as to its direction of travel.

How would you like to learn more about having a tortoise as a pet? If so, let me recommend a very good book for you, it is available in digital or paper versions, the name of the book is:

"Sulcata and Leopard Tortoises – Complete Herp Care," by EJ Pirog, TFH Publishing, Neptune City, NJ, 2008, 128 pages, (Digital eBook Version) ASIN: B005KKODD4, ISBN: 978-0-7238-2898-2.

In this work you can learn about many of the African Tortoise species and the size of the egg laying "clutches" and how many eggs they lay along with their habit needs, mating season, incubation time for the eggs, and what type of predators try to get those eggs. Knowing what they eat is very important too. Most arid region tortoises are similar in nature, and be sure not to call them turtles, they are different you see. Please consider all this and think on it
