Description : The purpose of this book is an attempt to address and unify the common difference between people of different ethnicities, backgrounds, and faiths from a spiritual and, to some degree, practical perspective, which is reflected in the subtitle “A Little Bit of Me, a Little Bit of You,” implying that the pains, disappointments, joys, frustrations, birthdays, celebrations, and deaths are all relevant in that each are common to every human being regardless of geographical location political affiliation, ethnic background, or educational environment. However, in the opinion and experiences of the author, the willingness and ability to manifest an act of understanding as manifested in the life and teaching of Jesus Christ has proven to be an effective method of helping without hindering the efforts of many whose desire is to better the environment in which we live, especially when attempted in an environment of sincere, unconditional love.

Description : The articles in this book are not thematically sequential but a record of thoughts that came from day to day. They are, however, scattered around the core of religion and rationality. You may find a few spots concerned with humanism and science. Some thoughts are short and some spilling over to more than a page or two. It is more in the format of a diary than a detailed discussion on one theme. They represent a freethinking. Many may disagree with them, but that is what constitutes variety in thought.
Description : This book contributes to the current knowledge and research on conflict and cross-cultural dialogue, emphasizing how respect, tolerance and dialogue may be quite effective tools for bridging the diverse cultures and, consequently, for solving many of the conflicts of today’s world, characterized by a dynamic interchange of populations with very diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. For this purpose, we rely on reputed scholars from ten different countries, and from different cultures and fields of expertise, which allows for diverse contributions from a valuable interdisciplinary perspective. The first section of the book deals with the correlation between cultural differences and conflict, while also showing how such conflicts can be prevented and, should they arise, managed and solved. The second section addresses a different, more specific issue: how cultural expression means and tools for cultural communication may lead to conflict whereas they may help to avoid it as well. Finally, the third section analyzes how legal and justice systems deal with cross-cultural conflicts as well as with situations which may lead to cross-cultural conflicts, thus assessing to which extent such systems contribute to avoid and/or solve such kind of conflicts.
Description : This book is an accumulation of Master Marvin Smalheisers writing in the Tai Chi magazine from its inception in 1977 till 2016. Master Smalheiser was the editor and the owner of Tai Chi magazine, and he published only an article related to tai chi. He was a practitioner as well as a teacher. He lived what he thought was the best way of lifehelpful, humble, and down-to-earth. This book covers many aspects and benefits of tai chi as a martial art that Master Smalheiser felt to write about. Some of the topics are meditation, relaxation, self-defense, the types of tai chi, history, health, personal interviews with masters in the US and abroad, and more. It was Master Smalheisers wish to write books about tai chi, but his untimely death did not allow him to get the books done. I do not know much about tai chi; therefore, I gathered some of his writings and made this book to benefit all the tai chi practitioners as Master Smalheiser wanted. It is my wish that the tai chi enthusiasts will enjoy the book and remember Master Marvin Smalheiser.
