In his upcoming book, ‘Earth, Air, Fire, and Water: Having Fun Learning Science by Debunking Pseudoscience’, author Brian Aull takes the reader on a tour of the world. WILMINGTON, NC, May 19, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Author Brian Aull has been chosen as a winner in the 2017 ’50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading Book Awards’. This is the third win for Aull, the author of ‘The Triad: Three Civic Virtues That Could Save American Democracy.’ In his upcoming book, ‘Earth, Air, Fire, and Water: Having Fun Learning Science by Debunking Pseudoscience,’ he uses a humorous story to the take the non-scientist on a tour of the world. “I want readers to have fun learning the science of everyday things,” Aull says, “such as rainbows, weather, ocean tides, the rumbling of the Earth, and the rhythms of the sun, moon, and stars.” In the story, nineteen adventure tourists on their way to the South Pole are abducted by a group of people dressed in penguin costumes and claiming to be NASA employees.

Mentally Ill In Jails And Prisons Is A Problem That Can Be Solved Says Virginia Sollars, Author Of ‘And Some Will Triumph’

Sollars’ latest book, ‘And Some Will Triumph’, is a heartbreaking and riveting look into correctional mental health, from the perspective of a compassionate nurse, that holds exciting potential for increasing awareness through print and film media WILMINGTON, NC, May 19, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Overcrowding in jails and prisons is a massive problem in the US. One major cause of this ongoing problem is that the system often places the mentally ill in jails, rather than placing them in mental health facilities. In an article on Huffington Post entitled ‘New Efforts Aim To Keep The Mentally Ill Out Of Jail’, a 2009 study showed that “an estimated 2 million adults with serious mental illnesses are jailed in the course of a year. Studies, including one from the Urban Institute, say they tend to stay in jail longer than those without mental illnesses, return to jail more often and cost local jurisdictions more money while incarcerated. More frequently than not, they are jailed for minor offenses, such as trespassing, disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace or illicit drug use.” That is the problem. But what is the solution? Virginia Sollars believes the solution lies in making the public aware of the problem on a deeper level. As a psychiatric nurse working in the correctional system, Virginia journeyed inside the minds of the mentally ill. Her book, ‘And Some Will Triumph, is a...

SAN JOSE, CA, May 19, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — St. Leo the Great School in downtown San Jose partnered with RAFT (Resource Area for Teaching) to design and build a custom Makerspace at the school.

Using impact drivers, tape measures, and squares the students took charge managing to complete the entire build in one school day. As a gift to their younger peers, the 8th grade class transformed an empty room into a fully stocked Makerspace ready for years of STEAM related experimentation and hands-on learning. Eighth grader Kaleigh Phipps picked up an impact driver and spent the day building tables with her team, “Even though it was a small thing like a table, it felt very empowering, and it was much easier than it seemed.
