Reality Check Book Excerpt:

For readers of The Celestine Prophecy, this is what you’ve been waiting for. Reality Check was written for everyone else who knows that we’re on the verge of pushing Mother Nature and the economy to the breaking point. Reality Check shows the urgent need to reverse humanity’s downward spiral by undoing the status quo. Half the book is filled with quotes from the likes of Chomsky, Sagan, Carlin, Goodall, Soros, Orwell, Asimov, Hegel, William James, Sting and the Beatles, as well as some of the most popular TV shows and movies. This over-the-top attempt to avert an “evolutionary crash” hopes instead to turn the situation into an “evolutionary bounce” by galvanizing members of the so-called “choir” who already understand that the status quo needs to be revamped. Otherwise, civilization as we know it won’t last much longer. The book addresses everything from parenting to economics, political systems to global warming and general environmental destruction, as well as sociology, history and God. It’s time for a reality check! What are you waiting for?

Say Yes to Time Book Excerpt:

The author hopes this latest collection of poems, "Say Yes To Time", will reveal a positive approach to life, to say "yes" to the evolution of everything. "We have come a long way since the Big Bang and we have so far to go", is her pep talk. We all need to compose on the canvas of existence together, in the very best way our understanding will allow. After publishing her eight books of poetry (Red Daughters in a Foreign Spotlight, Soul Beans, Zoom Lens, Double Decked Nature, Gravel Pit on the Moon, Rocks on the Road, Poems of Gratitude, and Written Rhythms of Space Travel and Earthly Things), the author, Marleen Rita Duckhom, has written yet another moving forward masterpiece, "Say Yes To Time". In this volume of poems, she includes many topics but she resists calling them anecdotes. Although there may be a method to her madness, she may be conveying a message to share her positive approach to looking at our aging solar system and galaxy and arrange that prospect to an evolving perspective of ourselves while we're still here. It is an interesting journey requiring light-hearted attendance in the class called outer space.

The Future Formula is 21 life principles that cross every aspect of every readers' life. They are intended to challenge, provoke, reinforce, and compel the reader to take some action, any action, to first include the principle in their belief system and to then implement that new belief where appropriate. It is not just ideas that leave the reader wondering about how to apply the ideas but it is both idea and recommended application. The Future Formula looks wholly at the individual, the family, and the business knowing that there are Spiritual, Mental, and Physical aspects in each and that without addressing the entire entity, that true significant change is limited. The Future Formula is a reflection of the work Mattox has done with thousands of clients worldwide over the past 15 years and will now reach a much larger audience to create the same level of life changing success.

The Shape of Things to Come Book Excerpt:

From the author of Mystery Train and Lipstick Traces, an exhilarating and provocative investigation of the tangle of American identity "America is a place and a story, made up of exuberance and suspicion, crime and liberation, lynch mobs and escapes; its greatest testaments are made of portents and warnings, biblical allusions that lose all certainty in the American air." It is this story of self-invention and nationhood that Greil Marcus rediscovers, beginning with John Winthrop's invocation of America as a "city on the hill," Lincoln's second inaugural address, and Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech about his American dream. Listening to these prophetic founding statements, Marcus explores America's promise as a New Jerusalem and the nature of its covenant: first with God, and then with its own citizens. In the nineteenth century, this vision of the nation's story was told in public as part of common discourse, to be fought over in plain speech and flights of gorgeous rhetoric. Since then, Marcus argues, it has become cryptic, a story told more in art than in politics. He traces it across the continent and through time, hearing the tale in the disparate voices of writers, filmmakers, performers, and actors: Philip Roth, David Lynch, David Thomas, Allen Ginsberg, Sheryl Lee, and Bill Pullman. In The Shape of Things to Come, the future and the past merge in extraordinary and uncanny ways, and Marcus proves once again that he is our most imaginative and original cultural critic.

Feel Good Every Day Book Excerpt:

After a few hectic - but wonderful - years, I woke up in a hospital close to my hometown in Sweden. What had happened? Only yesterday, I felt like a champion. Maybe it was my eagerness to explore the world around me that had put me here. Or maybe it was my fear of missing out on some potentially rewarding experience. Maybe I had been just a little bit too eager trying to make my dreams come true, or could my brush with death simply be a case of bad luck? There was a severe inflammation in my brain, which at times made it hard for me even to recognize my loved ones. To me, questions like 2 + 2 seemed more fitting for a rocket scientist. The doctors were deeply concerned and told me that my prognosis was very uncertain. Things certainly looked bleak, but surviving this whole ordeal was still in the cards. At the time, it made more sense to me to simply see my situation as a case of bad luck. Nonetheless, six months later and completely recovered, I realized that this was the result of something completely different. My love for life and my desire to experience as much as possible had blocked my inner signals. It was like an inner voice telling me to "Relax. Don't try to do everything at once. Stop and smell the roses." Unfortunately, I ignored this worried voice that was trying to look out for me. As I took my first stumbling steps leaving the hospital, I can still clearly remember how alert my senses truly were. Children's laughter made me feel all warm inside. The simple beauty of the sky shifting color made me stop all of a sudden in awe. Smelling the first spring flowers gave me goose bumps. The taste of fresh air being sucked into my lungs made me feel deeply relaxed and the sensation of once again experiencing life made me somewhat euphoric. I was completely present in the moment and my senses were shaper than ever before. This was the beginning of a new journey for me. I started to examine exactly what is needed to create the best possible conditions for feeling good and how we are to create the best possible lives for ourselves. Eight years later, I have now compiled my research and theories in this book. My research has led me to conclude that it is possible for each and every one of us to feel good, every day, throughout our whole lives.

Lead As You Live Live As You Lead Book Excerpt:

Restoring Honor to an Honorable Vocation is an attempt to denounce those who defile the ministry through their self serving, ungodly and unethical conduct as shepherds of God's sheep. It examines the many ways churches and parishes can keep priests and pastors who abuse their offices from inflicting further injury to the Ministry. It highlights specific actions to neutralize Ecclesial scam artists and discourage them from entering the Priesthood? It is set up as a rallying call to godly priests and pastors, Bishops and Cardinals, Superintendents and General Secretaries of Protestant denominations to usher in a new era of accountability and pastoral service, based upon the principles of spiritual uprightness, integrity and faithfulness unto God.

Three Dimensional Creativity Book Excerpt:

Is creativity something that we are simply born with and cannot hone with effort? Some say that creativity cannot be cultivated. Is it true? In general our thinking sticks to reality unless there is any external stimulation. With our thinking fixed on a certain situation, it becomes difficult to come up with a fresh idea. In this regard, three questions are suggested: (1) Question of Time: When a problem arises, question yourself on a time axis first of all. How would the matter be handled 10 or 20 years from now? (2) Question of Space: Ask yourself some questions on its spatial elements. How would the matter be handled in Saudi Arabia or in China? (3) Question of Field: Apply the given problem in a variety of fields. How would the matter be handled in the field of music or electronic engineering? The three questions suggested here are given on the three axes: time, space, and field, and this book deals with theoretical and practical aspects on the topics. In this way it is a unique book about the systematic method of developing creativity, which will have appeal to researchers and students in multidisciplinary fields from neuroscience to physics, and engineering and computer science, as well as a general public.

Introduction to Machine Learning with Applications in Information Security Book Excerpt:

Introduction to Machine Learning with Applications in Information Security provides a class-tested introduction to a wide variety of machine learning algorithms, reinforced through realistic applications. The book is accessible and doesn’t prove theorems, or otherwise dwell on mathematical theory. The goal is to present topics at an intuitive level, with just enough detail to clarify the underlying concepts. The book covers core machine learning topics in-depth, including Hidden Markov Models, Principal Component Analysis, Support Vector Machines, and Clustering. It also includes coverage of Nearest Neighbors, Neural Networks, Boosting and AdaBoost, Random Forests, Linear Discriminant Analysis, Vector Quantization, Naive Bayes, Regression Analysis, Conditional Random Fields, and Data Analysis. Most of the examples in the book are drawn from the field of information security, with many of the machine learning applications specifically focused on malware. The applications presented are designed to demystify machine learning techniques by providing straightforward scenarios. Many of the exercises in this book require some programming, and basic computing concepts are assumed in a few of the application sections. However, anyone with a modest amount of programming experience should have no trouble with this aspect of the book. Instructor resources, including PowerPoint slides, lecture videos, and other relevant material are provided on an accompanying website: http://www.cs.sjsu.edu/~stamp/ML/. For the reader’s benefit, the figures in the book are also available in electronic form, and in color. About the Author Mark Stamp has been a Professor of Computer Science at San Jose State University since 2002. Prior to that, he worked at the National Security Agency (NSA) for seven years, and a Silicon Valley startup company for two years. He received his Ph.D. from Texas Tech University in 1992. His love affair with machine learning began in the early 1990s, when he was working at the NSA, and continues today at SJSU, where he has supervised vast numbers of master’s student projects, most of which involve a combination of information security and machine learning.

Discover Your Real Wealth Book Excerpt:

A lot of us are caught up in the race of acquiring and multiplying wealth. Often, this comes at the cost of harmony in relationships, health and emotional well-being. We fail to strike the right balance in life and believe that life is meant to be such. Then, there are others who believe that it's impossible to be materially successful and yet have peace and joy-believing that prosperity and peace cannot coexist. Hence, they either resort to the life of a recluse or lose themselves in material indulgence. Busting these myths related to money, Discover Your Real Wealth guides you to your true wealth of consciousness. It explains how your thoughts and emotions affect your consciousness and provides various techniques to retain and raise it. If you safeguard this wealth everything else will fall into place. The book explains the art of functioning in a relaxed state, enabling you to assuredly watch how all your wishes come to fruition, instead of struggling and hankering after them. A calming read during cacophonous times, the teachings of Sirshree will help you enjoy all the riches of the world and lead the path to the ultimate state of peace, success, harmony and abundance.
