Descy, Don E. – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2006

Farmer, Tom – Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), 2009
"I wanna be an astronaut when I grow up" was a common refrain from children in the 1970s, 80s and 90s, and it might have given the U.S. space program leaders a false sense of security that an endless line of well-qualified workers would be waiting outside their door for years to come.

Goldsborough, Reid – Black Issues in Higher Education, 2004

But ultimately they're search tools, not research tools. There's a great deal of information not on the Internet, particularly thoroughly researched,…

Echo-Hawk, Roger; Zimmerman, Larry J. – American Indian Quarterly, 2006
The scrutiny of racism as a cultural practice is well established in scholarship and in American public discourse. The underlying problem of race itself is also a common topic in academic writings and is a matter of ever-increasing consensus in anthropology and biology.
