Description : This book presents for the first time the general logic of the development of popular science in Russia in relation to the Western experience, during the periods of the both the Russian Empire and the USSR. From the perspective of scientific achievements, Russia is an integral part of the Western world. Moreover, in the 20th century, Russia managed to achieve an unusually high position of authority regarding science in society, which was then accompanied by the mediatization of science. The level of popular science in the USSR was unusually and uniquely high; science replaced religion for the Soviet people. The signs of the popular science revival in modern Russia should lead to the construction of an environment that does not duplicate Soviet or Western experience, but instead combines them. This book will not only be a valuable resource for specialists in the field of history, mass communications, science and education managers, but also for a wide audience of readers interested in popular history.

Description : How do brand names differ from other names, and what goes into making a good name great and a bad name ghastly? Knowing this can spell the difference between bankruptcy and marketplace triumph. In this indispensable guide, the authors share the secrets of successful brand names--how they've indelibly stamped cultures around the world; who makes them; why they're made; and how they're compiled, bought, sold, and protected. The book outlines what kind of names exist--the initialized, descriptive, allusive, and coined. How namers surf on brainwaves. The do's, don'ts, and nevers of naming, how the structure of names is built from the ground up and how their sounds are engineered. Why names symbolize benefits. Where in the world brands may be found, and what will become of them. Fast-paced, illustration-packed, gazing at the past and probing into the future, this is the definitive book on naming. The Making of A Name is the one book anyone interested in "owned words" must have.

Description : The purpose of this book is voter education. Every thinking person realizes that we face serious problems: increasing disparity between rich and poor, a shrinking middle class, disintegration of the family, teen pregnancy, cultural subversion, crime and drugs, lack of adequate healthcare, environmental damage, repeated engagement in foreign wars, and a national debt approaching $6 trillion. These problems did not develop overnight, and they will not be resolved overnight. To paraphrase Thomas Jefferson, "Democracy requires informed voters." It is the central theme of this book that the source of these problems is the capitalist system of economy that benefits the few wealthy at the expense of the many workers.
