This "guidebook" or "rule book" contains material needed to choose your style on how to pay at the fare box and where to stand while waiting for the bus. Plus a philosophy on how to maintain dignity and peace when the going gets tough. "The Dao of things cannot be complete without the Dao of driving a bus. I'd ride with Doug all the way to the Himalayas just to listen to the art of his wisdom." - David Biddle, author of Implosions of America-- A Story Collection "Nice read. I like the mix of situational context and life lessons." - Chad Upham, graduate, Art Center College of Design

"Do you have a car?" "Yes, I do, and you're sitting in it! Today's car number is 5481. I get a new car everyday, and I can hold up to fifty people at once! I get to take you where you want to go and get paid to do it. I don't have to worry about parking, because it is free. I don't have to pay for gas because this car uses free city hydroelectric power. I have a camera to send a bill to someone blocking my parking space. If there is any trouble, help can be here in three minutes. I sold my truck when I moved here and I haven't had to pay for tires, batteries, gas, parking, or insurance. My employer is my insurance company. The money is coming in, not going out. I am kind of like the ultimate in ride share, without any carbon emission!"

As today's preeminent doomsday investor Mark Spitznageldescribes his Daoist and roundabout investmentapproach, “one gains by losing and loses by gaining.”This is Austrian Investing, an archetypal, counterintuitive,and proven approach, gleaned from the 150-year-old Austrian Schoolof economics, that is both timeless and exceedingly timely. In The Dao of Capital, hedge fund manager andtail-hedging pioneer Mark Spitznagel—with one of the topreturns on capital of the financial crisis, as well as over acareer—takes us on a gripping, circuitous journey from theChicago trading pits, over the coniferous boreal forests andcanonical strategists from Warring States China to NapoleonicEurope to burgeoning industrial America, to the great economicthinkers of late 19th century Austria. We arrive at his centralinvestment methodology of Austrian Investing, where victorycomes not from waging the immediate decisive battle, but ratherfrom the roundabout approach of seeking the intermediatepositional advantage (what he calls shi), of aiming at theindirect means rather than directly at the ends. The monumentalchallenge is in seeing time differently, in a whole newintertemporal dimension, one that is so contrary to ourwiring. Spitznagel is the first to condense the theories of Ludwig vonMises and his Austrian School of economics into a cohesiveand—as Spitznagel has shown—highly effective investmentmethodology. From identifying the monetary distortions andnon-randomness of stock market routs (Spitznagel's bread andbutter) to scorned highly-productive assets, in Ron Paul's wordsfrom the foreword, Spitznagel “brings Austrian economics fromthe ivory tower to the investment portfolio.” The Dao of Capital provides a rare and accessible lookthrough the lens of one of today's great investors to discover aprofound harmony with the market process—a harmony that is soessential today.

The Oxford Handbook Of Religion And The American News Media

Whether the issue is the rise of religiously inspired terrorism, the importance of faith based NGOs in global relief and development, or campaigning for evangelical voters in the U.S., religion proliferates in our newspapers and magazines, on our radios and televisions, on our computer screens and, increasingly, our mobile devices. Americans who assumed society was becoming more and more secular have been surprised by religions' rising visibility and central role in current events. Yet this is hardly new: the history of American journalism has deep religious roots, and religion has long been part of the news mix. Providing a wide-ranging examination of how religion interacts with the news by applying the insights of history, sociology, and cultural studies to an analysis of media, faith, and the points at which they meet, The Oxford Handbook of Religion and the American News Media is the go-to volume for both secular and religious journalists and journalism educators, scholars in media studies, journalism studies, religious studies, and American studies. Divided into five sections, this handbook explores the historical relationship between religion and journalism in the USA, how religion is covered in different media, how different religions are reported on, the main narratives of religion coverage, and the religious press.

As nightfall descended on Saigon, Vietnam, the Dao family joined the masses huddled on the floor of a military cargo plane for an immediate evacuation. The year was 1975. The Vietnam War was coming to a bitter end, and just about everybody was desperate to get out of the country. Nearly two months and two refugee camps later, the Dao family finally arrived in Coffeyville, Kansas where they put down roots for a new life in the Heartland of America. From that day on, the discoveries were many as were the triumphs and travails. From sampling the breakfast staple of cereal and milk to learning the English language to surviving the rancor of war-induced, family strife, Home Away From Home is a hobbling walk down the memory lane of a life that has languished yet thrived in America.

Twenty-five essays by world class kayaker Doug Ammons discuss what we learn from whitewater when we enter the world of adventure. As stated in the Preface, ¿the adventure sports allow us to take part in the very forces that sculpted the world around us,¿ and they form the modern Dao. The essays discuss risk, where fear comes from and how it can be overcome, beginner¿s mind, openness to experience, the real measure of skill, being alone, martial arts concepts applicable to kayaking, confronting limits and knowing ourselves.Ammons has a PhD in psychology and 35 years as a world class whitewater kayaker. He was named in 2010 by Outside Magazine as "one of the top ten game changers in adventure since 1900" for his extreme descents. The book was named by the Wall Street Journal in 2010 as ¿One of the top six adventure books.¿

Just as a long discussion with Doug Robinson is the shortest way toward conceptualizing innovative approaches in Translation Studies, so reading a new book of his is a mindexpanding experience. This definitely holds true for this book, in which he undertakes an impressive attempt to retheorize semiotranslation. One of its many intellectual merits is that he fundamentally questions our habitualized, sometimes idealized, assumptions. The author himself mentions that he loves the periphery. But some of his ideas are so central to the phenomenon of translation that they make us feel the need for a humble Semiotic Turn in Translation Studies.

The US seems to be heading directly toward a confrontation with North Korea as Koreans in the south, and nations around the world, anxiously witness mounting tension. Carpenter and Bandow take a look at the twin crises now afflicting US policy in East Asia: the reemergence of North Korea's nuclear weapons program and the growing anti-American sentiment in South Korea. They question whether Washington's East Asia security strategy makes sense with the looming prospect of US troops stationed in South Korea becoming nuclear hostages. Carpenter and Bandow put forth the most provocative solution yet to this gnarled and dangerous situation.
