You are the sum of your cellular parts—all several hundred trillion cells. And how you feel and function depends on how they feel and function. And how they feel and function has a lot to do with coenzyme Q10, better known as CoQ10, a vitaminlike substance produced throughout your body. Without this substance, your cells—and thus, you—couldn’t survive.

For starters, CoQ10 is a fundamental ingredient in the energy production that keeps those trillions of cells running smoothly. A shortage of CoQ10 translates into an energy crunch, with you and your cells running on weak batteries.

Unfortunately, that situation describes a lot of people, many of whom are outright deficient. Low levels of CoQ10 generate a negative impact on health and, very likely, the aging process itself.

Besides generating energy, CoQ10 is one of the body’s most powerful antioxidants. It protects you against free radicals, the destructive molecular fragments that cause accelerated aging and degenerative diseases. And, according to exciting new research, CoQ10 also activates certain genes in a way that appears to strengthen you against disease and rejuvenate your body.

18: Varietal Generation and Output

Walker, T.S. CABI PDF


Varietal Generation and Output

T.S. Walker,* A. Alene, J. Ndjuenga, R. Labarta, Y. Yigezu,

A. Diagne, R. Andrade, R. Muthoni Andriatsitohaina,

H. De Groote, K. Mausch, C. Yirga, F. Simtowe, E. Katungi,

W. Jogo, M. Jaleta, S. Pandey and D. Kumara Charyulu

The substantive findings in Chapters 6–17 are synthesized and reviewed in this and the following chapter, which draw heavily on Walker et al.,

2014. Findings are synthesized from two perspectives: a cross-sectional analysis across the

20 crops in 2009–2011 and a before-and-after comparison with the 1998 benchmark and the

2009–2011 data. Findings in this chapter are organized from the evaluation framework of inputs and outputs that was described in Chapter 3.

Hypotheses from that chapter are revisited at the end of each thematic section. Where appropriate, results from South Asia reported in Chapters 13 and 14 are cited to provide a spatial benchmark for the outputs of data analysis in sub-Saharan

Africa (SSA).

5. The University of COPS

Mary Beth Rogers University of North Texas Press PDF


The University of COPS

San Antonio, 1986

The doors to the old elementary school on the grounds of the

Immaculate Heart of Mary parish on the West Side of San

Antonio are locked. Only the small red, white, and blue lapel button taped over a doorbell gives me any assurance that I am where I want to be: at the office of the neighborhood organization COPS. A hand-lettered sign lets me know I must ring the bell to gain entrance. The parish and the West Side neighborhood are so poor and devastated by urban renewal that they can no longer support the school. So the 70-year-old building is locked, boarded up, and used only for periodic sessions of an adult literacy class-and for the COPS headquarters, located on the second floor and accessible to the West Side leaders who run the organization. After my first visit, I understood the necessity of the locked doors. There are hazards in the old building and in the neighborhood. One day I lost my footing and fell on a chipped cement stairway that had no railings.

Chapter 4 Establishing What All Students Should Learn

Heather Frizielle Solution Tree Press ePub

Implementing a strategy of common, rigorous standards with differentiated resources and instruction can create excellence and equity for all students.

—Stacey M. Childress, Denis P. Doyle, and David A. Thomas

When general educators and special educators work together to develop a shared understanding of learning expectations, all students benefit from their collective wisdom. Educators learn from and with each other as they consider the road map to focused, consistent teaching and learning, beginning with asking and answering the first critical question for PLC teams, What is it we expect our students to learn? This question can be answered in a variety of ways by teacher teams and individuals in a system. Some may present the state standards and say, “This is the answer to critical question 1; we are good to go.” Unfortunately, without careful consideration of the standards, each teacher may prioritize, interpret, and apply the standards differently. Others may say, “We have our textbook and it defines what students should know and be able to do, so we don’t need to think about this.” We all know the flaws in this thinking. For one, it is nearly impossible to teach an entire textbook cover to cover in one school year, and we can’t be sure there is consistency in teachers’ interpretations of what is prioritized in the textbook. There may even be some who say, “I have taught ancient civilizations for the past twenty years, and the topics I have taught have worked for me and are what I believe students should know and be able to do in my classroom.” Special educators likely have their own set of expectations based on what they believe their students are capable of mastering.
