Science is denounced for having brought present chaos and conflict in the world. Spiritual renaissance vis-à-vis contemporary scientific self-annihilation of civilization can avert the burgeoning doom. This book deals with mutation of human psyche with consciousness of man to preserve our very existence; to bring about a new culture and resolve the crisis in human psyche. Consists of three parts-Part I highlights challenge of thought, consciousness, education, violence, relationship and society. The United Nations project launched on 23 September 2003 has been incorporated in Part II. Part III explores subject-object dualism, crisis of perception, science and spirituality. In principle, the total matter is a single dynamic flow of dimensional transformation of the whole psyche including latest discoveries of science.

The Section I of the book entitled The Immanent Disaster : A Vision of Climate Change consists of Ch. I to IX. It discusses that every event/organism is governed by immutable laws of Life, by Cosmic Consciousness, by Life Field. The truth of man or the truth of nature is the Oneness or Wholeness of Life. Only the Intelligence of Love and Compassion can resolve the problems of life. The Section II of the book is entitled Creativity and Innovation and consist of Ch. X to XXI. If the researcher is interested in profit making [materialism], the intuition falls to innovation [symbolic-dualistic frame of reference]. The research will have to repeat the whole process of quantum leap form innovation to intuition. Hideki Yukawa, Nobel prize in physics, wrote, The need for a reform is not without, but within . Mutation is not in future, it can only be now. Prof. R.K. Pachauri, in November 2007 predicted that only a few years are left to avert the worst. The Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh releases an Action Plan on Climate Change on June 30, 2008.We need Understanding, Direct Perception, Freedom, Science of the Wholeness of Life and art of living in Universal Consciousness. If India is to avoid the crisis of turning into disaster, it has to understand Consciousness here and now and to live that understanding.

Natural Science Education, Indigenous Knowledge, and Sustainable Development in Rural and Urban Schools in Kenya

Through a multi-sited qualitative study of three Kenyan secondary schools in rural Taita Hills and urban Nairobi, the volume explores the ways the dichotomy between “Western” and “indigenous” knowledge operates in Kenyan education. In particular, it examines views on natural sciences expressed by the students, teachers, the state’s curricula documents, and schools’ exam-oriented pedagogical approaches. O’Hern and Nozaki question state and local education policies and practices as they relate to natural science subjects such as agriculture, biology, and geography and their dismissal of indigenous knowledge about environment, nature, and sustainable development. They suggest the need to develop critical postcolonial curriculum policies and practices of science education to overcome knowledge-oriented binaries, emphasize sustainable development, and address the problems of inequality, the center and periphery divide, and social, cultural, and environmental injustices in Kenya and, by implication, elsewhere. “In an era of environmental crisis and devastation, education that supports sustainability and survival of our planet is needed. Within a broader sociopolitical context of post-colonialism and globalization, this volume points out possibilities and challenges to achieve such an education. The authors propose a critical, postcolonial approach that acknowledges the contextual and situational production of all knowledge, and that de-dichotomizes indigenous from ‘Western’ scientific knowledge.” Eric (Rico) Gutstein, Professor, Curriculum and Instruction, University of Illinois at Chicago (USA)

The contributed volume "Multidisciplinarity and Interdisciplinarity in Health" is a health-centered volume of the Integrated Science Book series. Lack of confidence, lack of expertise, complexities of healthcare, the confusing nature of healthcare environments, and lack of organization and standardization can become obstacles to successful communication. This volume establishes how extensive is the interface between formal sciences and medical sciences on health-related issues. The book provides an overview of the value of the integration of formal, biological, and medical sciences and related products, i.e., health informatics and biomedical engineering, to frame a holistic approach to health systems, healthcare, medical practice, drug discovery, and medical device design. The book also focuses on innovative solutions to the most critical issues of different health crisis, including obesity, infectious outbreaks, and cancer that can be found by using an integrative approach. It also contains the fascinating crossroads between medical sciences, physics, and mind that is discussed from multiple perspectives on cognition, neuroscience, and psychiatry. These multidisciplinary considerations will expand the concepts of creativity, leadership, aesthetics, empathy and mental health.

With the latest scientific research, this simple guide shows how insulin and inflammation affect your health and what you can to take control. Insulin: It's a scary word for anyone. Levels too high or too low can have grave medical consequences, and the rigorous testing and change in diet it takes to manage it can be daunting. Inflammation: Is this the cause of damage within the body? Worse still, insulin and inflammation have increasingly been found to affect much more than diabetes. Heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer's disease, and strokes have all been found to possibly link back to insulin resistance. The good news? You’ve got armor. While managing your insulin and inflammation levels can seem like impossible work, Dr. Peter Kash, Dr. Linda Friedland, and Dr. Jay Lombard have created an easy to follow guide that not only breaks down how insulin and inflammation affect your health, but also provides the information you need to keep it in check. “Drs. Kash, Friedland and Lombard finally put together the real story of the underlying cause of our epidemic of chronic illness from ADD to Alzheimer's, from depression to heart attacks, from cancer to obesity—it is the insulin flooding through our bodies triggering a deathly cascade. Read this book—it will save your life.”—Mark Hyman, MD, author of the New York Times bestseller, UltraMetabolism

Volume III of this landmark synthesis of research offers a comprehensive, state-of-the-art survey highlighting new and emerging research perspectives in science education. Building on the foundations set in Volumes I and II, Volume III provides a globally minded, up-to-the-minute survey of the science education research community and represents the diversity of the field. Each chapter has been updated with new research and new content, and Volume III has been further developed to include new and expanded coverage on astronomy and space education, epistemic practices related to socioscientific issues,design-based research, interdisciplinary and STEM education, inclusive science education, and the global impact of nature of science and scientific inquiry literacy. As with the previous volumes, Volume III is organized around six themes: theory and methods of science education research; science learning; diversity and equity; science teaching; curriculum and assessment; and science teacher education. Each chapter presents an integrative review of the research on the topic it addresses, pulling together the existing research, working to understand historical trends and patterns in that body of scholarship, describing how the issue is conceptualized within the literature, how methods and theories have shaped the outcomes of the research, and where the strengths, weaknesses, and gaps are in the literature. Providing guidance to science education faculty, scholars, and graduate students, and pointing towards future directions of the field, Handbook of Research on Science Education Research, Volume III offers an essential resource to all members of the science education community.
