Government Spending

Government Spending

This title explores whether government spending--on education, health care, and earmark projects--is wasteful, whether government spending should allow deficits and debt, the impact spending policies have on the economy, and ways spending must change to meet future challenges, like the increase in retirees, the evolving clean energy industry, and the changing needs of the nation's defense. The viewpoints are selected from a wide range of highly respected and often hard-to-find sources and publications. Allows the reader to attain the higher-level critical thinking and reading skills that are essential in a culture of diverse and contradictory opinions.

Smart and Spineless: Exploring Invertebrate Intelligence

Smart and Spineless: Exploring Invertebrate Intelligence
Downer, Ann, 1960-

When we think of intelligent creatures, we often think of vertebrates, or animals with spinal columns and relatively large brains. We don't usually think of invertebrates, or animals without a spine. But invertebrates can be astonishingly intelligent. These animals exhibit surprising feats of learning, memory, and problem-solving using their relatively simple, tiny brains some the size of a sesame seed or even smaller. In fact, some intelligent invertebrates have no brain at all! Scientists around the world are putting invertebrate intelligence to use in mind-boggling ways. Engineers are designing swarmbots based on bees to take part in search-and-rescue efforts. And materials scientists are basing a new, tough ceramic on the structure of a mantis shrimp's claw. In Smart and Spineless, readers will be challenged to think in a whole new way about what it means to be smart!
