An eviscerating look at the state of journalism in the age of the 24 hour news cycle by a Pulitzer Prize-winning television critic and a veteran news correspondent. No Time To Think focuses on the insidious and increasing portion of the news media that, due to the dangerously extreme speed at which it is produced, is only half thought out, half true, and lazily repeated from anonymous sources interested in selling opinion and wild speculation as news. These news item can easily gain exposure today, assuming a life of their own while making a mockery of journalism and creating casualties of cool deliberation and thoughtful discourse. Much of it is picked up gratuitously and given resonance online or through CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other networks, which must, in this age of the 24-hour news cycle, "feed the beast." In dissecting this frantic news blur, No Time to Think breaks down a number of speed-driven blunders from the insider perspective of Charles Feldman, who spent 20 years as a CNN correspondent, as well as the outsider perspective of Howard Rosenberg, who covered the coverage for 25 years as TV critic for The Los Angeles Times. No Time to Think demonstrates how today's media blitz scrambles the public's perspective in ways that potentially shape how we think, act and react as a global society. The end result effects not only the media and the public, but also the government leaders we trust to make carefully considered decisions on our behalf. Featuring interviews ranging from former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw to internet doyenne Arianna Huffington to PBS stalwart Jim Lehrer to CNN chief Jonathan Klein to a host of former presidential press secretaries and other keen-eyed media watchers, this incisive work measures lasting fallout from the 24-hour news cycle beginning in 1980 with the arrival of CNN, right up to the present.

Nancy Kline's Time To Think process builds an independent thinking culture in organisations and relationships. Over many years Nancy has refined this highly acclaimed system called the Thinking Environment. It identifies 10 behaviours that dramatically improve the way people listen, think and interact with one another. In this new book Nancy takes her thinking into a more personal sphere. Through a series of letters to her three goddaughters she addresses the fundamental questions of how we can live well, find meaning in our lives, and be happy. Applying the Thinking Environment philosophy, she demonstrates how thinking for ourselves underpins successful in all dimensions of life. From the Amy Question: 'what do you know now, that you are going to find out in a year?, to the power of expressing a complex idea idea in one sentence, to the generative invitation: 'what do you think?', she offers deeply stimulating, inspiring ways to the way we think - and live.

The quality of everything we do depends on the quality of the thinking we do first. The leaders, professionals, parents and teachers who understand this are at the top of their fields and inspire some of the finest independent thinking in their environments. In More Time to Think, Nancy Kline shares ten effective ways to help people think for themselves with rigour, imagination, courage and grace. From learning that the mind works best in the presence of a question (so never be afraid to risk being wrong) and that a key factor in the quality of a person's thinking is how they are treated by the people with them while they are thinking, to the importance of appreciation and of facing what you have been denying, Nancy Kline shows how to create a successful Thinking Environment, whether for two people or a larger group.

Thank you for visiting CREATESPACE, a publishing division of! This particular book was written to help homeowners successfully navigate the somewhat murky waters of hiring contractors for their home improvements. During challenging economic times , there is an even greater risk of unscrupulous tactics to mislead homeowners to sign contracts that over promise and under deliver. This book will give you practical suggestions on how to protect yourself, how to find quality contractors, how to lower the cost of any project, how to manage the process and how to achieve the quality results you want in the first place. Getting high quality work done for reasonable prices is precisely how to add real value to your home and avoid headaches. This book is written by a successful general contractor and will help you approach any sized project like a pro. Today, more than ever, your money needs to go as far as it can. This may seem like a daunting concept, if you're not a veteran construction "insider." We'll explore the "insider's" perspective of successful General Contracting and dispel any mysteries about it in a hurry in practical language that any homeowner can easily understand. We'll cover exactly how to:* Size up a project* Estimate a realistic budget* Understand exactly how to hire only the best subcontractors* How to negotiate the best price with those subcontractors* How to manage them* How to pay them * How to keep everything effectively on trackChapters include: Preface A note from the author1 Should you trust a General Contractor?2 What does a competent GC do and why should I think like one?3 How much do things really cost? 4 I have a project in mind. Where do I start?5 How do I find the right subcontractors in terms of competence and price?6 How should I pay the subcontractors?7 What is the typical chronology of the construction process? 8 How do I estimate the time to do the whole job?9 How do I check the quality of the work? 10 What are some issues to be aware of when making finish selections? 11 What about appliances? 12 What if I just want to hire a General Contractor? How do I pick the right one and not get taken for a ride?13 What are some common mistakes to avoid on the road to achieving excellence?We'll also discuss how to protect your project from going over budget and the critical decisions that need to be made prior to even starting which so many people overlook, to their peril. In the end, you'll be ready to manage your own project, or if you choose, hire the very best General Contractor. You'll have a much more informed perspective of what a good General Contractor does in any successful renovation or new construction project and be able to easily distinguish the competent ones from the rest.

Daniel Nie: Often I hear people say that their life was not going the way they wanted it to. I was not exceptional in this regard either. I remember at one particular point of my life, nothing was going my way at all. I was laid off, my newly started business was failing, my marriage was hanging on a thin string, my newborn daughter was very sick, and I was completely broke. However, I realized I was blessed with an inner power "creativity." With this ability I put myself together, and I started to build a new life, a successful life. We are so accustomed to looking at things (such as problems, stresses, and anxieties) in one way only. When we do this, we only see fragments of the whole picture and base our responses, actions, and decisions from our limited judgments. This faulty way of thinking and reasoning is often a main reason why our lives often do not go the way we plan, and our problems become more and more difficult to solve. But what if we can train our minds to change the way we think?

Possibly the biggest challenge teachers face in the classroom is getting their pupils to think for themselves. When children learn to think independently, they are able to take control of their own learning. What’s more, they become good at dealing with the many problems that life will inevitably throw their way – not only good at solving these problems, but at choosing the kind of thinking strategies that will help solve them. Helping your pupils to think for themselves defines the various types of thinking (critical, creative, reflective) and discusses in detail the most crucial type of thinking for student progress – metacognition, which invoves self-assessment, active decision making and personal goal setting. Focusing on how to choose and use a particular type of thinking or strategy for a particular purpose, this book shows teachers how they can do a audit of their pupils’ thinking skills and identify their pupils’ thinking preferences and dispositions, to foster a thinking culture in their classrooms and ensure that all their pupils become skilled and independent thinkers. This book suggests ways to organise the classroom, provides teaching strategies and pupil activities and gives notes on assessment and record-keeping. It is complemented by several pages of proformas, which can be copied or amended for use in the classroom.
