Description : Lost? No one to give you directions? Don't know which way to go? When you stand lost at the crossroads, you look for someone to come along to show you how to get out of your predicament. Sometimes you receive the answer you have been waiting for and sometimes it seems like you donâ€™t. When you look for the correct pathway, you have to look to the person who can supply the answers. Jesus said to his followers, â€œI am the Wayâ€”yes, and the Truth, and the Life. No one can come to the Father except through me.â€ Jesus came to show us the way which meant that he had to equip us with a lesson plan and instructions on how to live in the world and get a handle on our circumstances, yet not be a part of it; he showed us how to have the peace of the Lord and enjoy all the world has to offer without compromising our ideals. Jesus is the captain and the head, steering Eveâ€™s children to follow the correct course back to their first home, the Garden of Eden.
Description : The Book Story-Formed Pathways to Peace calls readers to action around a single vision—making peace a reality. It draws on the unexpected power of stories to transform the world. The stories retold here have resonated through the ages not only with those religious but also with thinkers, artists, musicians, and others who have seen in them universal patterns of behavior. Now retold with commentary as seen through the lens of conflict and peacemaking, they illuminate pathways to peace as relevant today as when first told. Each chapter is fronted with imagined headlines of the ancient story with actual parallel headlines from the present, thus highlighting this connection of past and present. It is then in going back that pathways toward peace are illuminated for the present and future. The wisdom tradition of sacred texts is hereby extended.
Description : Seeking Eden promotes an awareness of, and appreciation for, Georgia’s rich garden heritage. Updated and expanded here are the stories of nearly thirty designed landscapes first identified in the early twentieth-century publication Garden History of Georgia, 1733–1933. Seeking Eden records each garden’s evolution and history as well as each garden’s current early twenty-first-century appearance, as beautifully documented in photographs. Dating from the mid-eighteenth to the early twentieth centuries, these publicly and privately owned gardens include nineteenth-century parterres, Colonial Revival gardens, Country Place–era landscapes, rock gardens, historic town squares, college campuses, and an urban conservation garden. Seeking Eden explores the significant impact of the women who envisioned and nurtured many of these special places; the role of professional designers, including J. Neel Reid, Philip Trammel Shutze, William C. Pauley, Robert B. Cridland, the Olmsted Brothers, Hubert Bond Owens, and Clermont Lee; and the influence of the garden club movement in Georgia in the early twentieth century.

Description : Seeds of a Different Eden is a pathbreaking multidisciplinary study of the influence of Chinese gardening concepts on the English landscaping revolution of the early eighteenth century and the resulting germination of new theories of beauty and art, which took form in the works of Alexander Pope, Joseph Addison, and Lord Shaftesbury and culminated in the aesthetic revolution of Immanuel Kant.
Description : The No.1 SUNDAY TIMES bestseller. A fascinating explanation of how evolution works, from bestselling author of THE GOD DELUSION, Richard Dawkins. The river of Dawkins's title is a river of DNA, flowing through time from the beginning of life on earth to the present - and onwards. Dawkins explains that DNA must be thought of as the most sophisticated information system imaginable: 'Life is just bytes and bytes of information,' he writes. Using this perspective, he describes the mechanisms by which evolution has taken place, gradually but inexorably, over a period of three thousand million years. It is the story of how evolution happens, rather than a narrative of what has actually happened in evolution. He discusses current views on the process of human evolution, including the idea that we all trace back to a comparatively recent African 'Eve', and speculates that the 'information explosion' that was unleashed on Earth when DNA came into being has almost certainly happened in other places in the universe.

Description : This volume contains articles describing research on the basic, pre-clinical and clinical neuroscience of the basal ganglia written by attendees of the 10th Triennial Meeting of the International Basal Ganglia Society (IBAGS) that was held June 20-24th, 2010 at the Ocean Place Resort in Long Branch, New Jersey, USA. For each of the preceding 9 IBAGS meetings, the meeting proceedings were published conventionally as a volume in the Advances in Behavioral Biology series. These volumes were expensive, were published only in very small quantities, had very limited availability to both basal ganglia researchers and the general neuroscience community, were not available on-line and the articles contained in each were not indexed in online searchable databases. Now, for the first time, IBAGS is taking full advantage of modern innovations in scientific publication and publishing IBAGS X as a Research Topics issue of Frontiers in Systems Neuroscience. The issue will be available on-line and is fully indexed by searchable databases including PubMed. Articles will include reports on the latest research on the anatomy and neurophysiology of single neurons and functional circuitry in the striatum, globus pallidus, subthalamic nucleus and substantia nigra as well as the latest data on animal models of basal ganglia dysfunction as well as behavioral and clinical studies in human patients.
