San Diego, California – WEBWIRE

True or not, many stories are hint-n-a-half lessons for being continually aware of the challenges of life.

The date for the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books 2024 has already been set, prompting many authors and publishers to start signing up for an exhibit. Many are looking forward to a repeat of this years success, where writers from a diverse range of backgrounds were encouraged to share their work. Among these authors is Frederick Jordan, author of Quotes, Jokes and Stories to Live By: Mostly from the Hood.

Jordan grew up in an underprivileged household in North East Washington, D.C. It was a place where exposure to gang wars was common. Despite that, he endured the struggle and got himself both undergraduate and graduate degrees in civil engineering from Howard University and Stanford University, respectively.

Hes widely known for his commitment to improving the lives of many African Americans as well as minority communities. Hes the recipient of over 100 awards and accolades for his work in civil rights, engineering, and philanthropy.

His book Quotes, Jokes and Stories to Live By just offers several glimpses into what he has seen and heard throughout his personal journey. It is a collection of insightful sayings and a few offhand accounts of life in the hood. Many of them are all about doing ones best, pursuing greatness, and defying self-limiting beliefs. Yet at the same time, it is also unapologetically loud in its advocacy for equality and social justice and exposing the prevalent mistreatment of African Americans.

Quotes, Jokes and Stories to Live By: Mostly from the Hood will fit right in the exhibits of the 2024 Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. The outdoor literary festival is slated for April 20-21, 2023, at the University of Southern California campus in Los Angeles, CA. Visitors will find it displayed at the self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnets exhibit.

Frederick Jordans book is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and ReadersMagnet Bookstore. Check out the authors website to learn more about the book.

Author Frederick Sproull’s New Book, “Galileo’s Shadow,” is an Illuminating Work Examining the Attempts to Supplant the Fact-Based Theory of Evolution in US Schools

 Frederick Sproull, PhD, JD, is a biologist and attorney who earned his doctorate in developmental biology from the University of Pittsburgh, did postdoctoral research at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, and currently serves as chair of the Department of Biology at LaRoche University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he teaches evolution, population genetics, and an exploration of the Galapagos Islands and maintains a special interest in educational law, has completed his new book, “Galileo’s Shadow: The Theory Evolution in the United States Courts”: a compelling examination of federal court cases centered on religious versus scientific content in American public schools.

The author writes, “This work deals with the efforts of creationists during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries to eliminate or limit the teaching of evolution in United States public schools and the response that these efforts generated from mainstream law, science, and religion. The confrontations that ensued often resulted in political maneuvering, the enactment of laws, and litigation. Usually, the litigation found its way into the federal courts with United States constitutional implications. No other scientific theory has ever been subject to such legal prohibition or judicial scrutiny in the history of the United States. Astonishingly, evolution cases of this kind found their way to the Supreme Court twice. The interplay among the scientific, legal, and religious issues woven throughout the various court decisions that are examined in this work are of particular interest; as is the nature of science. Also of interest is how proponents of both evolution and creationism cynically altered and bent their arguments in response to prior court decisions in an effort to successfully promulgate their particular position and how courts often tailored their decisions to ideology, rather than judicial principles.

“A story with scientific, political, and ethical implications is told in this work using a cluster of federal court cases that fairly represent the issues that are at stake in this controversy. Perhaps they also provide us with a model for better understanding how the judicial and legal systems operate.”

Published by Page Publishing, Frederick Sproull’s engrossing book is an eye-opening read for anyone interested in the legal machinations of a faction of American society determined to steer the teaching of the origins of the universe from scientific consensus to religious doctrine.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Galileo’s Shadow: The Theory Evolution in the United States Courts” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
