Description : A tribute to Jane C. Goodale, Pulling the Right Threads discusses the vibrant ethnographer and teacher's principles for mentoring, collaborating, and performing fieldwork. Known for her ethnographic research in the Pacific, development of the Association of Social Anthropology in Oceania, and influence in the anthropology department at Bryn Mawr College, Goodale and other contributors renew the debate in anthropology over the authenticity of field data and representations of other cultures. Together, they take aim at those who claim ethnography is outmoded or false.

Description : Transport provides access to public services for the poor, opens up trade opportunities, and maximizes thebenefits of urbanization: the mobility of people and goods drives development. So how can we protect therole of transport in times of scarcer fuels, costly and harmful carbon emissions, and the rising threat ofextreme weather events? This is the central question that this book seeks to answer.Turning the Right Corner: Ensuring Development through a Low-Carbon Transport Sector finds that adoptingnew vehicle technologies and alternative fuels will not be enough to curb greenhouse gas emissions fromtransport: new patterns of mobility will also be needed. In developing countries where past infrastructureinvestments have not yet locked in particular transport modes, there is an opportunity to contain emissionsby harnessing low-emission modes of transport. The book argues that the transition to low-carbon mobilityis not only urgently needed if economies are to avoid becoming locked into high-carbon growth, but is alsoaffordable. It outlines how countries can combine policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions with broadersector reforms that generate new fiscal resources to finance the transition in addition to carbon financingand international assistance.Turning the Right Corner: Ensuring Development through a Low-Carbon Transport Sector will be of interest topolicy makers, academics, and development practitioners with an interest in transport. It will help decisionmakers better understand how to contain the transport sector's contribution to climate change and protecttransport infrastructure and services from severe weather events.

Description : Ideologically divided and disorganized in 1960, the conservative wing of the Republican Party appeared to many to be virtually obsolete. However, over the course of that decade, the Right reinvented itself and gained control of the party. In Turning Right in the Sixties, Mary Brennan describes how conservative Americans from a variety of backgrounds, feeling disfranchised and ignored, joined forces to make their voices heard and by 1968 had gained enough power within the party to play the decisive role in determining the presidential nominee. Building on Barry Goldwater's short-lived bid for the presidential nomination in 1960, Republican conservatives forged new coalitions, began to organize at the grassroots level, and gained enough support to guarantee Goldwater the nomination in 1964. Brennan argues that Goldwater's loss to Lyndon Johnson in the general election has obscured the more significant fact that conservatives had wrested control of the Republican Party from the moderates who had dominated it for years. The lessons conservatives learned in that campaign, she says, aided them in 1968 and laid the groundwork for Ronald Reagan's presidential victory in 1980.

Description : In the age of the Internet, we educate people much as we did during the Industrial Revolution. We educate them for a world that no longer exists, instilling values antithetical to those of a free, 21st century democracy. Worst of all, too many schools extinguish the very creativity and joy they ought to nourish. In Turning Learning Right Side Up, legendary systems scientist Dr. Russell Ackoff and “in-the-trenches” education innovator Daniel Greenberg offer a radically new path forward. In the year’s most provocative conversation, they take on the very deepest questions about education: What should be its true purpose? Do classrooms make sense anymore? What should individuals contribute to their own education? Are yesterday’s distinctions between subjects--and between the arts and sciences--still meaningful? What would the ideal lifelong education look like--at K-12, in universities, in the workplace, and beyond? Ackoff and Greenberg each have experience making radical change work--successfully. Here, they combine deep idealism with a relentless focus on the real world--and arrive at solutions that are profoundly sensible and powerfully compelling. Why today’s educational system fails--and why superficial reforms won’t help The questions politicians won’t ask--and the answers they don’t want to hear How do people learn--and why do they choose to learn? Creating schools that reflect what we know about learning In a 21st century democracy, what values must we nurture? ...and why aren’t we nurturing them? How can tomorrow’s “ideal schools” be operated and funded? A plan that cuts through political gridlock and can actually work Beyond schools: building a society of passionate lifelong learners Learning from childhood to college to workplace through retirement Reinventing Learning for the Next Century: How We Can, and Why We Must An extraordinary conversation about the very deepest questions... Today, what is education for? Where should it take place? How? When? What is the ideal school? The ideal lifelong learning experience? Who should be in charge of education? And who pays for it all? Over the past 150 years, virtually everything has changed...except education. Schools were designed as factories, to train factory workers. The factories are gone, but the schools haven’t changed. It’s time for us to return to first principles...or formulate new first principles...and reimagine education from the ground up. In Turning Learning Right Side Up, two of this generation’s most provocative thinkers--and practical doers--have done just that. They draw on the latest scientific research, the most enduring human wisdom, and their unique lifelong personal experiences transforming institutions that resist change. And, along the way, they offer a powerful blueprint for a thriving society of passionate lifelong learners.

Description : During my senior year at seminary, I was substitute preaching at a small rural church in southwest Ohio on the topic: “Turning the World Upside Down.” Thessalonians were saying that about those first Christians. A lady greeted me after the service with the question, and a hint of desperation in her voice: “Tell me, what can I do?” I had no answer back then. This book would be my answer now. Sometime after seminary, it became my passion to recover the faith and experience of New Testament Christianity. Fifty years later, after encountering Christ, serving in pastoral ministry, studying Scripture, and journaling to remember lessons God was teaching me, this book is a summary of my understanding of New Testament Christianity. It focused on Jesus (Incarnate Lord), His word (truth), and His kingdom (limitless resources). When the church returns to that focus for determining its faith and experience, it will produce disciples, servants, and witnesses that go beyond mere church membership in today’s Christianity. Then, it will learn to tap the limitless kingdom resources necessary to turn the world right side up, claim the earth for Christ, produce Christlike people, and lead the way to peace someday on earth.

Description : An Academy Award–nominated screenwriter and a mystery novelist, Roger L. Simon is the only American writer to pull off the amazing trick of being profiled positively in both Mother Jones and National Review in one lifetime. The stunning story of his political odyssey is told in this memoir, where Simon recounts his migration from financier of the Black Panther Breakfast Program to pioneer blogosphere mogul beloved by the right as a 9/11 Democrat. But Simon is beholden to neither right nor left in this tale of Hollywood chic run amuck, as he talks out of school about his adventures with, among many others, Richard Pryor, Warren Beatty, Timothy Leary, Richard Dreyfuss, Woody Allen, and Julian Semyonov, the Soviet Union’s version of Robert Ludlum and also a KGB colonel who tempted Simon to join the KGB himself. Among the topics covered along the way: Is there a new blacklist in Hollywood, this one targeting conservatives? Simon’s red-carpet tours of the People’s Republic of China, Cuba, and the Soviet Union with Hollywood screenwriters and famous mystery novelists. Why Al Gore’s documentary on global warming didn’t deserve the Oscar on artistic grounds alone; and why the Academy’s voting system is so corrupt. And, as they say, there is much, much more besides.

Description : Nibila’s Testimony! I absolutely know the power of the name Jesus! I began to call on Jesus early on in my youth. Having parents who love you unconditionally was God’s first manifestation to me and what I will cherish the most from him. My journey to a deeper relationship evolved much later in my fifties. The twists and left turns began once I became a woman in my early teens. It was then I began to navigate through life ignoring the GPS (God’s perfect solutions) for my life. It was Jesus who kept me and that still small voice who guided me time and time again out of my detours, roadblocks, potholes, fender benders, and the head-on collisions that I willingly drove right into before giving Jesus full control of me. God’s love, mercy, and amazing grace continue to manifest in my life today. Jesus continues turning me right and keeping me straight and focused on his love, which is for all who believe in Christ Jesus.

Description : In the book of Acts the apostles began to preach after Jesus’ ascension the gospel of the Kingdom. This is the same gospel Jesus preached and great miracles were written with this type of preaching. One could speculate and it is obvious we are not seeing the mighty works of Jesus or the apostles today because we have deviated from preaching the gospel of the Kingdom. Today, there are all types of preaching: the gospel of grace, the gospel of prosperity, the gospel of healing but no obvious power. Acts 17:6 says these men (the apostles) have turned this world upside down. Why, because they preached the gospel of the Kingdom. If we return to preaching and teaching the Kingdom message, we will turn this world right side up. The power will return, the anointing will return, the glory of God will return, and we will see mighty works of God happening in all nations. We will witness in this day the apostles and prophets’ band together, Jews and Gentiles band together, spiritual gifts in operation like never seen before. This is the day that the army of the Lord is seen marching forth shattering the spiritual walls of religion and apostasy. God is saying to those that have ears to hear, take another look into the spirit realm, take another look into the supernatural and great and mysterious things will be revealed.

Description : A contact structure is a maximally non-integrable hyperplane field $\xi$ on an odd-dimensional manifold $M$. In $3$-dimensional contact geometry, there is a fundamental dichotomy, where a contact structure is either tight or overtwisted. Making use of Giroux's correspondence between contact structures and open books for $3$-dimensional manifolds, Honda, Kazez, and Mat\'{i}c proved that verifying whether a mapping class is right-veering or not gives a way of detecting tightness of the compatible contact structure. As a counter-part to right-veering mapping classes, right-veering closed braids have been studied by Baldwin and others. Ito and Kawamuro have shown how various results on open books can be translated to results on closed braids; introducing the notion of quasi right-veering closed braids to provide a sufficient condition which guarantees tightness. We use the related concept of $P$-bigon right-veeringness for closed braids to show that given a $3$-dimensional contact manifold $(M, \xi)$ supported by an open book $(S, \phi)$, if $L \subset (M, \xi)$ is a non-$P$-bigon right-veering transverse link in pure braid position with respect to $(S, \phi)$, performing $0$-surgery along $L$ produces an overtwisted contact manifold $(M', \xi')$. Furthermore, if we suppose $L \subset (M, \xi)$ is a pure and non-quasi right-veering braid with respect to $(S, \phi)$, performing $p$-surgery along $L$, for $p \geq 0$, gives rise to an open book $(S', \phi')$ which supports an overtwisted contact manifold $(M', \xi')$.
