Never Despair, God Is Always There by Larry Whitler 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

One of the responsibilities we have to each other is to share stories that provide comfort, encouragement, and hope. To do that we often have to humble ourselves and to even reveal things about ourselves that might be embarrassing. I especially think that young people need to know that their elders were not perfect, were not saints, made numerous mistakes, and often found themselves stranded, abandoned, out-of-control, and destitute. In the course of a lifetime we can choose to either acknowledge God's presence and role in our lives or we can claim that we are "self-made." I reject the whole "self-made" assessment of our own accomplishments and choose to acknowledge God's presence throughout my life.I am, in no way, a biblical scholar. But I am an observer of life. In my very short book, "Never Despair, God Is Always There," I share stories of my own, and stories of others who responded to a blog post I made, that I believe illustrate God's presence, God's mercy, God's love, God's ...

Solving Cold Cases Vol. 7: True Crime Stories that Took Years to Crack (True Crime Cold Cases Solved) by Andrew J. Clark 3.9 Stars (42 Reviews)    Price verified 24 hours ago

Chilling is one of the best words to describe the cases presented in this book, the 7th from the series Solving Cold Cases. These gruesome crimes seemed to hit a dead end... That is until the cases were reopened for investigation and then solved thanks to modern technologies and new investigation techniques. Download FREE with Kindle Unlimited For law enforcement, cold cases are the toughest to crack. They are those frustrating cases that just never seem to have any answers, and the longer the cases stay cold, the more difficult they become. The killer could even be right under their noses, yet there's just not enough evidence to make the connection. The case of Angela Kleinsorge, for example, remained unsolved for decades before it was finally proven that she was killed by the guy that lived right across the street! Sometimes, cold case murders are not even viewed as such. The cold case of Mike Williams fits this bill. Mike was murdered by his best friend during a hunting trip, ...

Step One: Save the World: The Journey of a Water Protector by DJ Rankin 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

??This is a cookbook. This is an adventure novel. This is a love story. This is a tale of survival. This is a spiritual journey. This is a catalog of the oppressions and destructions perpetrated by the machine of mankind. This is a handbook on standing up to the tyranny enacted by a corrupt government through the mechanism of fear. This is a recruitment manual for a global movement of resistance. We are winning. It is time to stand up. Enough is enough. Do what feels right. ??Last winter I was called to Standing Rock to protect the water and my entire world was flipped upside down. I lived in the most amazing, love based, frozen tipi utopia, where I connected with the greatest human beings imaginable, and connected to myself and the universe through the ceremonies of the Lakota people, and through science. I was simultaneously exposed to not only the long list of evils unleashed on our species and planet in the name of money, but witnessed this first hand through a cloud of tear gas ...

Thinking Through the Cold War by David Jardini 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

Thinking Through the Cold War represents the first scholarly history of the RAND Corporation from its inception in the waning years of World War II through the organization's strategic diversification from military into social welfare policy analysis in the 1960s and 1970s. The book is based on extensive research in RAND's internal archives, oral history interviews, as well as numerous other primary document collections. More than an institutional history of RAND, Thinking Through the Cold War uses the RAND Corporation as a window on the complex interaction among national security and social welfare research and policy-making in Cold War America. It argues that the Cold War had deep effects not only on the locus of research and development but also on the process of knowledge production in the United States. The emergence and proliferation of entirely new classes of research institutions during the Cold War altered the structural landscape of American science as well as American ...

Gender and the Genocide in Rwanda: Women as Rescuers and Perpetrators (Routledge Studies in Gender and Security) by Sara E. Brown (Routledge) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

This book examines the mobilization, role, and trajectory of women rescuers and perpetrators during the 1994 genocide in Rwanda. While much has been written about the victimization of women during the 1994 genocide in Rwanda, very little has been said about women who rescued targeted victims or perpetrated crimes against humanity. This book explores and analyzes the role played by women who exercised agency as rescuers and as perpetrators during the genocide in Rwanda. As women, they took actions and decisions within the context of a deeply entrenched patriarchal system that limited their choices. This work examines two diverging paths of women's agency during this period: to rescue from genocide or to perpetrate genocide. It seeks to answer three questions: First, how were certain Rwandan women mobilized to participate in genocide, and by whom? Second, what were the specific actions of women during this period of violence and upheaval? Finally, what were the trajectories of women ...

Housing Market Dynamics in Africa by El-hadj M. Bah (Palgrave Macmillan) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

This open access book utilizes new data to thoroughly analyze the main factors currently shaping the African housing market. Some of these factors include the supply and demand for housing finance, land tenure security issues, construction cost conundrum, infrastructure provision, and low-cost housing alternatives. Through detailed analysis, the authors investigate the political economy surrounding the continent's housing market and the constraints that behind-the-scenes policy makers need to address in their attempts to provide affordable housing for the majority in need. With Africa's urban population growing rapidly, this study highlights how broad demographic shifts and rapid urbanization are placing enormous pressure on the limited infrastructure in many cities and stretching the economic and social fabric of municipalities to their breaking point. But beyond providing a snapshot of the present conditions of the African housing market, the book offers recommendations and ...

Advances in Proof-Theoretic Semantics (Trends in Logic Book 43) by Thomas Piecha (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

This volume is the first ever collection devoted to the field of proof-theoretic semantics. Contributions address topics including the systematics of introduction and elimination rules and proofs of normalization, the categorial characterization of deductions, the relation between Heyting's and Gentzen's approaches to meaning, knowability paradoxes, proof-theoretic foundations of set theory, Dummett's justification of logical laws, Kreisel's theory of constructions, paradoxical reasoning, and the defence of model theory. The field of proof-theoretic semantics has existed for almost 50 years, but the term itself was proposed by Schroeder-Heister in the 1980s. Proof-theoretic semantics explains the meaning of linguistic expressions in general and of logical constants in particular in terms of the notion of proof. This volume emerges from presentations at the Second International Conference on Proof-Theoretic Semantics in Tübingen in 2013, where contributing authors were asked to ...

Socioeconomic Inequality and Educational Outcomes: Evidence from Twenty Years of TIMSS (IEA Research for Education Book 5) by Markus Broer (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

This open access book focuses on trends in educational inequality using twenty years of grade 8 student data collected from 13 education systems by the IEA's Trends in Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) between 1995 and 2015. While the overall positive association between family socioeconomic status (SES) and student achievement is well documented in the literature, the magnitude of this relationship is contingent on social contexts and is expected to vary by education system. Research on how such associations differ across societies and how the strength of these relationships has changed over time is limited. This study, therefore, addresses an important research and policy question by examining changes in the inequality of educational outcomes due to SES over this 20-year period, and also examines the extent to which the performance of students from disadvantaged backgrounds has improved over time in each education system. Education systems generally aim to narrow the ...

This Open Access book analyses the interplay between governing, evaluation and knowledge with an empirical focus on Swedish higher education. It investigates the origins, logics, and mechanisms of evaluation and quality assurance reforms and their dynamic interactions with institutional, national and European policy contexts.

The book also explores the ways in which an emerging professional cadre, labelled qualocrats, enacts and mediates evaluation and quality assurance policy and practice. Taken together, the expanding evaluation machinery in Swedish higher education ...

Forensic Genetics in the Governance of Crime by Helena Machado (Palgrave Pivot) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

This open access book uses a critical sociological perspective to explore contemporary ways of reformulating the governance of crime through genetics. Through the lens of scientific knowledge and genetic technology, Machado and Granja offer a unique perspective on current trends in crime governance. They explore the place and role of genetics in criminal justice systems, and show how classical and contemporary social theory can help address challenges posed by social processes and interactions generated by the uses, meanings, and expectations attributed to genetics in the governance of crime. Cutting-edge methods and research techniques are also integrated to address crucial aspects of this social reality. Finally, the authors examine new challenges emerging from recent paradigm shifts within forensic genetics, moving away from the construction of evidence as presented in court to the production of intelligence guiding criminal investigations.

Analyzing features of Wittgenstein's philosophical work and including in-depth textual analyses, this study investigates the impact of Ludwig Wittgenstein's work on contemporary German and French novelists. Drawing upon aesthetics, architectural history, philosophy of science, and photography, the book seeks to explain why references both to Wittgenstein as a person, as well as to his work are more pervasive than other equally renowned twentieth century philosophers and asks why some authors such as Händler and Roubaud, are less well-known and only partially translated into English.

Open Access in Theory and Practice: The Theory-Practice Relationship and Openness (Routledge Critical Studies on Open Access) by Stephen Pinfield (Routledge) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

Open Access in Theory and Practice investigates the theory-practice relationship in the domain of open access publication and dissemination of research outputs. Drawing on detailed analysis of the literature and current practice in OA, as well as data collected in detailed interviews with practitioners, policymakers, and researchers, the book discusses what constitutes 'theory', and how the role of theory is perceived by both theorists and practitioners. Exploring the ways theory and practice have interacted in the development of OA, the authors discuss what this reveals about the nature of the OA phenomenon itself and the theory-practice relationship. Open Access in Theory and Practice contributes to a better understanding of OA and, as such, should be of great interest to academics, researchers, and students working in the fields of information science, publishing studies, science communication, higher education policy, business, and economics. The book also makes an important ...

Chapters contextualize each issue within specific social ecological frameworks in order to reflect on the multiplicity of influences that affect different outcomes and to discuss how the findings can be applied in different contexts.

Agency and Causal Explanation in Economics (Virtues and Economics Book 5) by Peter Róna (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 5 hours ago

This open access book provides an exploration of the consequences of the ontological differences between natural and social objects (sometimes described as objects of nature and objects of thought) in the workings of causal and agency relationships. One of its important and possibly original conclusions is that causal and agency relationships do not encompass all of the dependent relationships encountered in social life. The idea that social reality is contingent has been known (and largely undisputed) at least since Wittgenstein's "On Certainty", but social science, and most notably economics has continued to operate on the basis of causal and agency theories borrowed or adapted from the natural sciences. This volume contains essays that retain and justify the partial or qualified use of this approach and essays that totally reject any use of causal and agency theory built on determined facts (closed systems).The rejection is based on the possibly original claim that, whereas ...
