Life on 1/10th the fossil fuels turns out to be awesome. We all want to be happy. Yet as we consume ever more in a frantic bid for happiness, global warming worsens. Alarmed by drastic changes now occurring in the Earth's climate systems, the author, a climate scientist and suburban father of two, embarked on a journey to change his life and the world. He began by bicycling, growing food, meditating, and making other simple, fulfilling changes. Ultimately, he slashed his climate impact to under a tenth of the US average and became happier in the process. Being the Change explores the connections between our individual daily actions and our collective predicament. It merges science, spirituality, and practical action to develop a satisfying and appropriate response to global warming. Part one exposes our interconnected predicament: overpopulation, global warming, industrial agriculture, growth-addicted economics, a sold-out political system, and a mindset of separation from nature. It also includes a readable but authoritative overview of climate science. Part two offers a response at once obvious and unprecedented: mindfully opting out of this broken system and aligning our daily lives with the biosphere. The core message is deeply optimistic: living without fossil fuels is not only possible, it can be better. Peter Kalmus is an atmospheric scientist at Caltech / Jet Propulsion Laboratory with a Ph.D. in physics from Columbia University. He lives in suburban Altadena, California with his wife and two children on 1/10th the fossil fuels of the average American.

What happens when a forty-five-year old therapist goes to acting school with a group of young actors? While testing her theory that the arts are the pathway to higher consciousness and a spiritual worldview, the author encounters unexpected drama. Art and life blur as she faces daily conflicts, a brush with death, life-altering neurological changes, and a classmate’s suicide. Through acting, she gains powerful insights about artistic endeavor and heightened consciousness; above all, she realizes that shifting the worldview requires following Gandhi’s wisdom: “Be the change that you want to see in the world.” Throughout her adventures, Dr. Duanita shows the reader how to co-create reality, enhance creativity, and deepen their spiritual connection. So powerful is the intention of her true story that few who read it will fail to experience a transformation of mind, heart, and spirit.

Now Zach is working to end slavery and free the men, women, and children who are being held against their will. He’s even found some friends in the fight, including Jon Foreman of Switchfoot and Leeland Mooring of Leeland. Just look around the world and on the news and you’ll find that there are plenty of things wrong with our planet—homelessness, hunger, global warming, AIDS...the list goes on and on. And we usually look at these problems and decide they’re too big for us to do anything about. But Zach is proving that one person can make a difference. And in his book, he’ll reveal the elements needed to make amazing changes in your world. In the end, he hopes you’ll find the thing you’re passionate about—and start making changes!

Nonprofit organizations continue to reduce staff, programs, and hours of operation; all in the name of survival. Some have not survived. Some organizations try to attract new audiences, at times sacrificing their missions to do so. All compete for a share of diminishing government, corporate and private funding sources. Dr. Frederick A. Lambert, who has taught management and organizational leadership on the undergraduate and graduate levels, relies on the principles of total quality management to help your nonprofit organization excel, rather than merely survive. You can learn how to • build a foundation that promotes success; • craft and pursue a strategic plan; • create and sustain a culture of quality; • put the customer first no matter what; • develop leaders who will create and sustain organizational growth and success. Nonprofit organizations continue to hire consultants, merge with other organizations, and downsize in the name of survival. But most of them wouldn’t need to do any of these things if they focused on executing on the strategies in Being the Best.

Being A Primer rediscovers our appreciation of being. It does this by finding the dynamic of essence and existence that being requires. This dynamic expresses itself in single beings, in multiple beings and in sequential beings. Our acquaintance with being takes place across the whole of being by expressions that are as wide as being—single realities in what are called by transcendental names. Each being manifest this for itself and others beings are similar to some others, showing its likenesses and differences in relation to other singular beings. Beings’ dynamic of their essences and their existences does not just happen, but occurs by each following others, The multiplicity of beings shows itself by how the likenesses and the differences bring beings to be in succession, not only all at once. This structure of being permits some distinctive beings—spiritual, free, and godly—to be glimpsed as called for and from the primer of being as essence and existence.

You never dreamed being the boss would be so hard. You're caught in a web of conflicting expectations from subordinates, your supervisor, peers, and customers. You're not alone. As Linda Hill and Kent Lineback reveal in Being the Boss, becoming an effective manager is a painful, difficult journey. It's trial and error, endless effort, and slowly acquired personal insight. Many managers never complete the journey. At best, they just learn to get by. At worst, they become terrible bosses. This new book explains how to avoid that fate, by mastering three imperatives: · Manage yourself: Learn that management isn't about getting things done yourself. It's about accomplishing things through others. · Manage a network: Understand how power and influence work in your organization and build a network of mutually beneficial relationships to navigate your company's complex political environment. · Manage a team: Forge a high-performing "we" out of all the "I"s who report to you. Packed with compelling stories and practical guidance, Being the Boss is an indispensable guide for not only first-time managers but all managers seeking to master the most daunting challenges of leadership.

Being The Church

If the divine liturgy really is as beautiful as we claim, wouldn’t more people attend? Wouldn’t the church grow? Driven by our desire for growth, we count, we analyze, we make charts, and we strategize, but often with few discernible results. That is probably the result of focusing on secondary aspects of church life. As we know, the very existence of a church is a gift of God’s presence and not the result of any particular actions taken by human beings. For that reason, church is primarily about being something rather than doing or achieving something. So the growth of the church is not reflected in ever-increasing numbers, dollars, and activities, but rather in steadily growing conformity to the divine ideal. So in order to evaluate ecclesial growth, we will first have to ask what the church is supposed to be. One answer to that question is captured in the four marks of the church given in the creed: Oneness, Holiness, Catholicity, and Apostolicity. These four characteristics serve as a matrix or framework within which we can focus on the primary aspects of ecclesial being and help it grow and become what it was intended to be.

This wide spread disease of corruption can only be cured by a total revamp of its political, investigative and prosecuting systems. What we are seeing all around us today is nothing but loot. Loot of very high scale to the extent we can’t count the number of zeros. And as this started to unfold with the Commonwealth Games exposure, it got my goat. I started to be a part of a collective voice which became louder by the day. At times very shrill, not by choice, but by compelling circumstances. But all for one common cause---a well governed India--- a better India which makes us all prosperous and our next generation secure. This is the spirit behind this collection. If the corrupt can unite for their vested interest, why we, the victims, not unite for our own selves? Be the change! Be The Change fighTing CorrupTion Kiran Bedi Kiran Bedi has been a courageous voice on police and prison reforms, women empowerment, serving the underserved communities, leadership issues in management and governance, now more focussed on corruption.
