Imagine if you could hope for the best, even after the worst. Imagine if your past could become your superpower. Imagine if you could be happy, regardless. When life is hard, The World is a Nice Place offers a new way of thinking. We all have the power to fall in love with our lives—even when it’s a series of disasters. As an international journalist, Amy Molloy spent over a decade interviewing amazing people who’ve survived incredible challenges—from terrorism attacks, to natural disasters, loss, grief, breakups, breakdowns and the everyday events that can cause our lives to freeze. As a "serial survivor" herself, Amy wanted to discover the secret formula that allows some people to move forward—joyfully—after difficulty, without letting it become their entire identity. In The World is a Nice Place she shares her story. A child with obsessive compulsive tendencies, who became a teenager with an eating disorder and a 23-year-old widow. Throw in a family history of depression, a father paralyzed from cancer, and a tendency to have spiritual premonitions and it’s a recipe for a messed-up adult. Or, is it? This insightful and searingly honest book, the product of ten years’ research, combines personal anecdotes with practical tools to help readers explore their memories, pinpoint their triggers and use their past to empower, inspire and guide them. Don’t let the worst day of your life be your greatest achievement. Imagine if you could hope for the best, even after the worst. Imagine if your past could become your superpower.

The Multiverse Is A Nice Place To Visit But I Wouldn T Want To Live There

In the fifth novel in Ira Nayman’s Multiverse series (aka the Transdimensional Authority series, which is misleading because book four in the series was mostly about the Time Agency – honestly, if you blinked, you would have missed the appearance of the Transdimensional Authority, and if you didn’t blink, well, Elsewhen Press accepts no responsibility for the cost of the surgery to rehydrate your eyes), we once again follow the intricate web of events that unfold in a Transdimensional Authority investigation (oh! – so we could have stayed with the other series name after all – it’s not easy keeping track when these sentences can be the size of a Sherman tank!). Why would someone, apparently chosen at random, have their consciousness swapped with someone else in another reality? How would someone, apparently chosen at random, have their consciousness swapped with someone else in another reality? Why would another three persons, apparently chosen at random, have their consciousness swapped with three other someone elses in another reality? Why would the entire bridge crew of a starship, apparently… well, you get the picture. What will happen to all these very confused people? How does the Alternate Reality News Service get scoops on these events so quickly? Why are their reporters acting so dodgy – do they have something to hide, or just issues? Who are the Pops, and can they help? Does the editor know what’s going on, and if she does would she even tell Noomi (our favourite TA investigator)? What was that noise from her office when Noomi was ‘interviewing’ her? Why am I asking you these questions when you haven’t even read the story yet? Or have you? Why are you reading this blurb if you’ve already read the story? Are you looking for an alternate reality, or just alternative facts? This is fiction you know, we tell it like it is. If you want alternative facts you better try a news service...or a politician. Oh, and if you’re looking for a news service, you could always consider the Alternate Reality News Service.

Gorgeous For God

Author : Lisa Natoli

Gorgeous for God is the story of my own spiritual awakening, based on A Course in Miracles. It is very ordinary story. Things happened slowly for me—there were no bells or whistles. No going into the light. I didn’t have a near-death experience. Instead, one by one, things that were no longer serving me dissolved and fell away—alcoholism, cigarette-smoking, fear, conflict, doubt. I found that as time went on, the ego-identity that I had built up over the years started to crumble, slowly, very slowly (at times painfully-slow!) and I found myself having almost no interest in the things I used be interested in. For me, enlightenment was when I stopped seeking for ways to improve myself. It was when I recognized that my old way of being was not working. I realized the necessity to see myself differently, as loved, loving and lovable, and not try to come up with a new improved identity.

Adaptive Reasoning For Real World Problems

This book describes a method for building real-world problem solving systems such as medical diagnostic procedures and intelligent controllers for autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and other robots. The approach taken is different from other work reported in the artificial intelligence literature in several respects: * It defines schema-based reasoning, in which schemas -- explicitly declared packets of related knowledge -- are used to control not only the reasoner's planning, but also all other facets of its behavior. * It is a kind of reactive reasoning that the author calls adaptive problem solving -- the reasoner maintains commitments to future goals but is able to change its focus of attention as the problem-solving situation requires. * It is a context-sensitive reasoning method. Every decision it makes relies on the use of contextual knowledge to be appropriate for the current problem-solving situation. Furthermore, context is represented explicitly; by always keeping a current representation of the context in mind, the reasoner's behavior is automatically sensitive to the context with very little work needed per decision. * Schema-based reasoning -- a generalization of case-based reasoning -- extends the usual idea of case-based reasoning to encompass all aspects of the reasoner's behavior, and it extends it to make use of generalized "cases" (i.e., schemas) rather than particular cases, thus saving effort needed to transfer knowledge from an old case to a new situation. Though the work originated in the domain of medical diagnostic problem solving, treating diagnosis as a planning task, it is even more appropriate for controlling autonomous systems. The author is currently extending the approach by creating a robust controller for long-range autonomous underwater vehicles that will be used to carry out ocean science missions.
