"I'm Sarah Parker and I am in this special place called "Aberdeen Hospital." People that have problems like cutting, self-harming, depression or anorexia come here and apparently get their problem fix. What they don't get is that every human being has the choice to do whatever they want with their body and what I want to do with it is what a lot of other teen are doing here: cutting without the nurse noticing. Unfortunately, when they do notice, you get in trouble. They put you in a room with only a couch and you are forced to stay there for 24 hours. When that is done, this lady comes and does this speech on why we shouldn't self-harm and how many damage it brings to us."

Allanna, Princess of Santra, has it all: five best friends who support her every belief, the life of a princess. Ignoring her fathers courts grumbling, Allanna has rebelliously grown up riding warhorses, wearing mens pants, and practicing swordcraft. Her friends are right behind her: Tempar, almost her match in swordplay; quiet Ratisha, who follows Tempars every wish; boisterous Megan, who is outspoken in every way; passive Sasha, who knows exactly what she wants and who she is; and silent Amelia, quiet but always there. Allanna has several rules that she is very positive about. She is very, very against all types of bonds. Though her position as a princess bonds her to her country, Santra, she doesnt seem to care. The bonds she is most vehemently against are people treating her likeand calling hera lady, expecting marriage and children. She would almost rather die than have these things tie her down. Allannas five friends have never objected to this belief, and so Allanna never thought of it. But she begins to grow wary when Tempar objects to her keeping some men from courting Sasha and Amelia. But still, she never thinks that Tempar would ever relate it to her. And so when, one day after swords practice, Tempar proposes to her, Allanna panics. She flees, along with Megan, Sasha, and Amelia, heading north, away from Santran civilization. But Tempar will stop at nothing to have Allanna at his side, and she soon learns the hard way that in order to save Santra and the rest of FalTarra from destruction, she must be prepared to take her throne backif she can.

A leading economist contends that the recent financial crisis was caused not by the failure of mainstream economics but by corrupted monetary data constructed without reference to economics. Blame for the recent financial crisis and subsequent recession has commonly been assigned to everyone from Wall Street firms to individual homeowners. It has been widely argued that the crisis and recession were caused by “greed” and the failure of mainstream economics. In Getting It Wrong, leading economist William Barnett argues instead that there was too little use of the relevant economics, especially from the literature on economic measurement. Barnett contends that as financial instruments became more complex, the simple-sum monetary aggregation formulas used by central banks, including the U.S. Federal Reserve, became obsolete. Instead, a major increase in public availability of best-practice data was needed. Households, firms, and governments, lacking the requisite information, incorrectly assessed systemic risk and significantly increased their leverage and risk-taking activities. Better financial data, Barnett argues, could have signaled the misperceptions and prevented the erroneous systemic-risk assessments. When extensive, best-practice information is not available from the central bank, increased regulation can constrain the adverse consequences of ill-informed decisions. Instead, there was deregulation. The result, Barnett argues, was a worst-case toxic mix: increasing complexity of financial instruments, inadequate and poor-quality data, and declining regulation. Following his accessible narrative of the deep causes of the crisis and the long history of private and public errors, Barnett provides technical appendixes, containing the mathematical analysis supporting his arguments.

Payton exposes, challenges and corrects some common misrepresentations of the Reformation.

What The West Is Getting Wrong About The Middle East

The West's actions in the Middle East are based on a fundamental misunderstanding: political Islam is repeatedly assumed to be the main cause of conflict and unrest in the region. The idea that we can decipher Jihadist radicalization or problems in the Middle East simply by reading the Qur'an has now become symptomatic of our age. This dangerous over-simplification and the West's obsession with Islam dominates media and policy analysis, ultimately skewing intervention and preventing long-term solutions and stability in the region. Ömer Taspinar, who has 20 years' research and policymaking experience, explains here what is really going on in the Middle East. The book is based on three of the most pressing cases currently under the spotlight: the role of Erdogan and the unrest in Turkey; the sectarian clashes in Iraq, Syria, Yemen and Lebanon; and the existence of the so-called Islamic State. Islam is often seen as the root cause of the challenge associated with these cases. But by unpacking the real issues, such as entrenched authoritarianism, vast energy resources, excessive defense spending, and the youth bulge, the book demystifies what is happening and cites governance and nationalism as the main drivers of conflict. The book shows the importance of treating the causes – which are economic, social and institutional – rather than the symptom – the continued and growing success of Islamist parties and jihadist movements in assessing the Middle East. In revealing exactly how Islamism is activated and by unpacking the structural challenges of the region, this unique insider's account provides a map to understanding Middle Eastern wars and conflicts and the prospects for the future.

Brendan Wallace, with a background in psychology, demonstrates that the key claims of Evolutionary Psychology (EP), popularised by Steven Pinker and others, are based on the 'brain is a digital computer' argument. He then argues that as we now know this model of the brain will not work, therefore EP won't work either, since it is based on a fallacious view of the mind/brain. The book, which is written in a reader friendly but rigorous style, is a timely assault on one of the most fashionable philosophies of mind currently 'out there'.

In the closing decades of the twelfth century, the Cistercian Order had become an important ecclesiastical and economic power in Europe. Yet it had lost its influential spokesman, Bernard of Clairvaux, and as the century drew to a close, religious sensibilities were changing. The new mendicant orders, the Franciscans and the Dominicans, and the impulses they embodied were to shift the center of gravity in Christian religious life for centuries to come. It was in this transitional period that Conrad of Eberbach gradually—between the 1180s and 1215—compiled the Exordium magnum cisterciense: The Great Beginning of Cîteaux. It is a book of history and lore, often with miraculous stories, meant to continue a great spiritual tradition, and it is also a book meant to justify and repair the Order. The Exordium magnum was in part an effort to provide a historical and formative context for those who were to be Cistercians in the thirteenth century. Conrad's combination of a historical sensibility and the edifying exempla makes the Exordium magnum a remarkably innovative book. Its unique combination of genres—narratio and exempla—is conceivable only within the intellectual world of the twelfth or early thirteenth centuries, before exempla collections came to be complied solely for edification or use in sermons. The Great Beginning of Cîteaux is a revealing book and an excellent place to begin more detailed study of the Cistercian Order between 1174 and the middle of the thirteenth century.
