Intended for anyone who is curious about math and where it is circa 2010.

Poor Richard, AN Almanac for Architects and Planners (2013) offered anew proverbs and witticisms about the architecture, urban design and planning of our cities. It was hailed as a “worthwhile”, “hilariously righteous epitome” for its “genius, extraordinary wit, passion for good design, and mastery of the history of planning” in “following both Benjamin Franklin and Ambrose Bierce” (Review by Harold Henderson, Planning Magazine, February 2014 and Foreword by Julia Starr Sanford to Poor Richard, AN Almanac for Architects and Planners). Poor Richard, ANOTHER Almanac for Architects and Planners brings together more common sense proverbs, astute observations, and general rules of thumb for anyone interested in the future of our cities. In doing so, author MARK DAVID MAJOR again draws from a dizzyingly array of sources for inspiration including the artistic movements of Modernism, obscure African, European and Oriental proverbs, and even the Old and New Testaments. These witticisms are often eloquent, sometimes biting, and always insightful; even occasionally bizarre in the absence of deeper thought. They offer a valuable resource for the entire year, daily reminders for everyone involved in the building of our cities about their better angels and warning against the worse demons of human nature. The clear message of Poor Richard, ANOTHER Almanac for Architects and Planners, with foreword by STEVE MOUZON (author of The Original Green), is we can do better for our cities and we must do better for our cities.

Poor Richard, An Almanac for Architects and Planners (Book 1)

Consent to be governed includes rights and responsibilities of the citizenry to ensure that freedom, justice, and equality prevail over narrowed special interests. It can be challenging for citizens to grasp the consequences of their disengagement without knowledge of fundamental democratic principles, purpose and functions of government, and an understanding of America's history. This book addresses constitutional principles, national security, immigration, domestic and global economic issues, foreign affairs, and the Electoral College. The overarching goal is to motivate the reader to become involved in, and remain engaged in, the civic and political process at all levels of government for the common good of the country. The framework was developed, in part, from The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) using the high school assessments for civics, economics, and U.S. History. NAEP's 2010 Civics report found that less than 30% of 4th, 8th, and 12th-grade students were proficient in civics. The Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI) administered a 60-question civics literacy exam to 28,000 undergraduate students from more than 80 colleges. The average score was 54%. When ISI tested adults of all ages and educational backgrounds, 71% of them failed.
