Going For A Ride: MMM Shapeshifter Biker Romance

by Van Cole

Get Ready For A Steamy Joy Ride

Cole Hill had always thought that he had it together but the only thing that didn’t make him smile was a dismal love life. He knew that he was an acquired taste. He didn’t consider himself to be high maintenance. He was bigger than most guys and when he was growing up he didn’t get much play from the guys.

Times they were changing and that was when he was set up with Dan Gray. At first, he didn’t want anything to do with him. That all went out the proverbial window when he saw the rough and edgy Dan.

It starts off hot and heavy and things go to the extreme when he meets his best friend, Jett. Their meeting is short lived and he plans never to see them again, but something continues to draw him back until he learns the terrible truth that afflicts the both of them. They never thought that they could have it this good and be able to share their secret with someone other than each other. Their biker friends are unaware of this and it’s the way that they want to keep things.

Will he be able to see past that one very particular flaw to the heart of both men?

Eternal Dance of Macrocosm: An Encyclopedia of Matter, Mind and Consciousness: Volume 2, 2011

by Michael Towsey

A brave and fascinating attempt to compare and bring about a constructive synthesis between Western science and psychology and Eastern spirituality and metaphysics. This book belongs in some sense to the tradtition of Fritjof Capra and ‘the Tao of Physics’, but is more modern, braver and comprehensive. Taking of from P. R. Sarkars tantric science of mind, creation and microvita, comparisons are made with Kuhn’s theories of scientific revolution and paradigm shifts, with Sheldrake, Wilber, Maturana, and many other prominent thinkers. A must for anyone one interested in expanding the domains of bothe science and consciousness.

Belly-Rippers, Surgical Innovation and the Ovariotomy Controversy (Medicine and Biomedical Sciences in Modern History)

by Sally Frampton

This open access book looks at the dramatic history of ovariotomy, an operation to remove ovarian tumours first practiced in the early nineteenth century. Bold and daring, surgeons who performed it claimed to be initiating a new era of surgery by opening the abdomen. Ovariotomy soon occupied a complex position within medicine and society, as an operation which symbolised surgical progress, while also remaining at the boundaries of ethical acceptability. This book traces the operation’s innovation, from its roots in eighteenth-century pathology, through the denouncement of those who performed it as â??belly-rippers’, to its rapid uptake in the 1880s, when ovariotomists were accused of over-operating. Throughout the century, the operation was never a hair’s breadth from controversy.

The United States Of The World: How the American government can guarantee economic development and democratic freedoms worldwide.

by Daniel McNeill

Where is “America” and what do we mean when we call America “the nation”?

The United States is a union of states that is located on the continent of North America and on the Hawaiian Islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. A more exact name for “the nation” would be, “The United States of North America and the Pacific Ocean.” Whatever the name, the union has always had difficulty being one nation since it has been adding states since 1787, in all 37 new states. Has the actual history of America since the ratification of the Constitution been the construction of a nation or of a union of states? The Constitution takes some sovereign powers away from states and transfers them to the Federal Government but as a result no government in the union is fully sovereign and each must function by law as a democracy. The Constitution reduces the power that makes an American state a normal state, full sovereignty, and it does not grant even the status of a state to the Federal Government. The government in Washington D.C. is located in a district, not a state, and its sovereign powers are limited by the Constitution just as are the powers of states. In this book, twelve essays on American history explore the struggle for power between the states and the Federal Government and conclude that the central idea of the Constitution is that all governments of the union at any level must be democracies. The men who created the Constitution and the men who ratified it gambled that to have democratic governments in their states full sovereignty was not necessary. Their gamble has paid off to such an extent that our American political system, a union of states with limited sovereignty, is the only political system in the world that can realistically produce a union of democratic states worldwide. The Federal Government should give up trying to be the head of “the nation” and instead become the central supranational government of a world union of states. The Constitution gives Congress the power to admit new states. States worldwide should apply for admission to the American union in order to guarantee for themselves economic development and a democratic government. The United States of America should become The United States of the World in order to secure by a strong central government and a written constitution the right of its peoples to be citizens in any democratic state of their union where they choose to reside.

Donâ??t Say we didnâ??t Know

by Amos Gvirtz

The Israeli – Palestinian conflict – a new approach!

This book is formulated with the understanding that on both sides of the Israeli – Palestinian conflict there are people who want the same thing: peace and protection of human rights. This fact is also what inspires the author to address some very moral questions and raise constructive and productive explanations about:

Why don’t people want to know about their own country’s crimes?
Why do Human Rights and Peace movements’ activities evoke such strong opposition?

This book focuses on the positive aspects of those questions and takes a deeper look into those few movements that were successful, while analyzing what enabled them to turn into massive movements creating major change. The book emphasizes the fact that there can be a way to reach what people on both sides desire – peace and offers a vision of “escalation of nonviolence” to make it happen.

Free Trade vs. Tariffs: A reasoned Analysis

by Alan Sewell

The debate over Free Trade* vs. Tariffs is one of those issues that combines monetary and ideological interests and is therefore prone to inflaming opinions beyond reason. These issues affect people’s bank accounts and their egos. People talk about them in shorthand phrases such as “Adam Smith, Milton Friedman, David Ricardo, Smoot-Hawley” as a way of saying, “I don’t know enough about tariffs to argue the pros and cons intelligently, so I’ll throw some buzzwords and â??appeals to authority’ around and hope they sound convincing.”

My purpose is to bring about a reasoned understanding of the Free Trade vs. Tariffs debate by exploring its historical roots and evolution to the present.

Swiss Public Administration: Making the State Work Successfully (Governance and Public Management)

Swiss citizens approve of their government and the way democracy is practiced; they trust the authorities and are satisfied with the range of services Swiss governments provide. This is quite unusual when compared to other countries. This open access book provides insight into the organization and the functioning of the Swiss state. It claims that, beyond politics, institutions and public administration, there are other factors which make a country successful. The authors argue that Switzerland is an interesting case, from a theoretical, scientific and a more practice-oriented perspective. While confronted with the same challenges as other countries, Switzerland offers different solutions, some of which work astonishingly well.

Qualitative Freedom – Autonomy in Cosmopolitan Responsibility

by Claus Dierksmeier

In the light of growing political and religious fundamentalism, this open access book defends the idea of freedom as paramount for the attempt to find common ethical ground in the age of globality. The book sets out to examine as yet unexhausted ways to boost the resilience of the principle of liberalism. Critically reviewing the last 200 years of the philosophy of freedom, it revises the principle of liberty in order to revive it. It discusses many different aspects that fall under its three main topics: the metaphysics of freedom, quantitative freedom and qualitative freedom.

Open societies worldwide have come under increasing pressure in the last decades. The belief that politics and markets fare best when guided by the principle of liberty presently faces multiple challenges such as terrorism, climate warming, inequality, populism, and financial crises. In the view of its critics, the idea of freedom no longer offers adequate guidance to meet these challenges and should be partially corrected or even entirely replaced by countervailing values. Against the reduction of freedom to the merely quantitative question as to how much liberties individuals call their own, this book draws attention to the qualitative concerns which and whose opportunities society should foster. It argues that, correctly understood, the idea of liberty commits us to defend as well as advance the freedom of each and every world citizen.

Men’s Experiences of Violence in Intimate Relationships (Palgrave Studies in Victims and Victimology)

by Marianne Inéz Lien

This open access book draws on a broad study on violence against men, from both male and female partners in Norway, to contribute to the research on intimate partner violence. It identifies similarities in men’s experiences and backgrounds, including in their perceptions of their own victimisation. Marianne Inez Lien and Jørgen Lorentzen argue that the traditional gender power model should be modified and supplemented, and propose that we consider violence in terms of psychological supremacy, rather than in terms of femininity and masculinity. Men’s Experiences of Violence in Intimate Relationships will appeal to students and scholars across a range of areas including criminology, sociology and family violence, and gender studies.

Science of Societal Safety: Living at Times of Risks and Disasters (Trust Book 2)

This open access book covers comprehensive but fundamental principles and concepts of disaster and accident prevention and mitigation, countermeasures, and recovery from disasters or accidents including treatment and care of the victims. Safety and security problems in our society involve not only engineering but also social, legal, economic, cultural, and psychological issues. The enhancement needed for societal safety includes comprehensive activities of all aspects from precaution to recovery, not only of people but also of governments. In this context, the authors, members of the Faculty of Societal Safety Science, Kansai University, conducted many discussions and concluded that the major strategy is consistent independently of the type and magnitude of disaster or accident, being also the principle of the foundation of our faculty.

The topics treated in this book are rather widely distributed but are well organized sequentially to provide a clear understanding of the principles of societal safety. In the first part the fundamental concepts of safety are discussed. The second part deals with risks in the societal and natural environment. Then follows, in the third part, a description of the quantitative estimation of risk and its assessment and management. The fourth part is devoted to disaster prevention, mitigation, and recovery systems. The final, fifth part presents a future perspective of societal safety science.

Thorough reading of this introductory volume of societal safety science provides a clear image of the issues. This is largely because the Japanese have suffered often from natural disasters and not only have gained much valuable information about disasters but also have accumulated a store of experience. We are still in the process of reconstruction from the Great East Japan earthquake and the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident. This book is especially valuable therefore in studying the safety and security of people and their societies.

Understanding Risks and Uncertainties in Energy and Climate Policy: Multidisciplinary Methods and Tools for a Low Carbon Society

This open access book analyzes and seeks to consolidate the use of robust quantitative tools and qualitative methods for the design and assessment of energy and climate policies. In particular, it examines energy and climate policy performance and associated risks, as well as public acceptance and portfolio analysis in climate policy, and presents methods for evaluating the costs and benefits of flexible policy implementation as well as new framings for business and market actors. In turn, it discusses the development of alternative policy pathways and the identification of optimal switching points, drawing on concrete examples to do so. Lastly, it discusses climate change mitigation policies’ implications for the agricultural, food, building, transportation, service and manufacturing sectors.

Regional and Local Development in Times of Polarisation: Re-thinking Spatial Policies in Europe (New Geographies of Europe)

Despite the emphasis of the European Regional Policy on territorial cohesion, regional disparities have been increasing within Europe in the past years. The metropolitan areas in almost all countries are considerably growing while regions outside of agglomerations are stagnating or even declining. Against this background this book aims to provide an understanding of the underlying processes of polarisation and related regional and local policies.
This open access volume contributes to the debates about polarisation and regional development by focussing on questions of spatial justice, power distribution and policy transfer. Theoretical and empirically grounded contributions show that European policies are indeed reproducing socio-spatial inequalities instead of challenging them. The book shows further the existing potentials and limits of individuals, economic, political and civil society actors to respond to polarisation on the regional and local level.
In this book conceptual thoughts on polarisation, regional policy and regional development are combined with empirical research and resulting implications for policymaking. As such, it is a valuable source for early career students and researchers as well as professionals in the field of regional and economic development, policy consultants, and policy makers.

THE CONNING OF AMERICA: How the Liberal Media Elected Donald Trump and Stole Hillary Clinton’s Destined Place in History

by Anonymous .

If Donald Trump is the consummate con artist, the media is the ultimate shill. This book explores how Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign conned a gullible American voter, exposed a hypocritical press and stole Hillary Clinton’s destined place in history as the first woman President of the United States. And how he did it without breaking a sweat.

What Brexit Means: An American Point of View

by Matt Brian

Brexit is a word made by combining Britain and exit. So, Brexit = Britain + Exit meaning that Brits are leaving the European Union. This idea was unthinkable even a decade ago. However, the results of a bitterly fought referendum that happened in June 2016 confirmed that a majority of the Brits wanted to leave the European Union.
Since the stunning results which were out on June 24, 2016, there have been debates, talks, blame-games, threats and lots more action in the UK and Europe, in particular, and the world over, in general. The effects of the Brexit referendum looks like any bitter divorce with both sides throwing dirt and slander on each other. So, why is Brexit happening and how is the world, particularly the US going to be affected by it?
The answers to the why and what of Brexit can be better understood by learning the whys and what of the European Union.

New Age Bible of Mother Africa (Vol.2): Black Consciousness, Ancient Alien Gods, Metaphysics, Kemetic Spirituality & African Origins of Civilization

by T Lindsey-Billingsley

Vol. 2: “Black Consciousness, Ancient Alien Gods, Metaphysics, Kemetic Spirituality & African Origins of Civilization”

The author, T. Lindsey-Billingsley, has compiled a no-nonsense philosophical study guide exploring racial origins, the African origins of humanity, and prehistoric Kemetic influence throughout the world. The main focus of these studies is on the anthropological and physiological makeup of racial groups, with indepth research into both the ‘Out of Africa’ theories and divine creationism myths.

Billingsley supplies concrete evidence to support her conclusions on the true human experience, in lieu of, popular speculation and theory devoid of logic and sound proof.

In this, and subsequent volumes, the author will establish a new perspective of thinking that will tempt you to challenge the validity of theological creationism and evolution, whilst substantiating a strong position on intelligent design and extraterrestrial intervention.

In these studies, we will examine the tie between primates, humans, extraterrestrial creators, and rare human blood-types. Billingsley touches on numerous relative subjects: from ancient alien ancestors, living hominids, lost ancient cities, and the mysteries of our world’s pyramids.

With solid research, and justified scrutiny, this author holds no punches when exposing the truth of human origins, hidden history, and esoteric ancient knowledge.

Billingsley has broken open the vaults of truth, well-guarded by age-old secret societies; and is eloquently revealing the long-lost, controversial, secrets of the human species. Each chapter is jam-packed with lecture, backed by scientific articles, data, and mind-blowing images to drive home the intended wisdom of each arcane lesson plan.
Each volume is a fulfilling journey into scientific creationism and the cosmic mysteries of the complete human experience.

Facebook Democracy: The Architecture of Disclosure and the Threat to Public Life (Politics & International Relations)

by José Marichal

In July 2010, Facebook had over 500 million subscribers worldwide and the rapid rise of the site prompted Time magazine to name Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg its person of the year for 2010. This novel book advances our understanding of how democratic citizens are transformed by the “Facebook revolution”. Despite increasing interest in politics and popular media, there has been little academic work on the impact of Facebook on politics in general, and on democratic processes in particular. The work that does exist has been limited to Facebook’s impact on politics as a mobilization tool used by social movement activists. In this book, José Marichal argues that understanding Facebook’s impact on political processes requires an understanding of how Facebook’s architecture of disclosure shapes the construction of individuals’ political identities by drawing users further into their pre-selected social networks. Drawing on a number of disciplines and an ethnographic analysis of 250 Facebook political groups, Marichal explores how Facebook’s emphasis on social connection impacts key dimensions of political participation: e.g., mobilization, deliberation, and attitude formation.

New Genetics, New Social Formations (Genetics and Society)

New genetic technologies cut across a range of public regulatory domains and private lifeworlds, often appearing to generate an institutional void in response to the complex challenges they pose. As a result, a number of new social formations are being developed to legitimate public engagement and avoid the perceived democratic deficit that may result. Papers in this volume discuss a variety of these manifestations in a global context, including:

  • genetic data banks

  • committees of inquiry

  • non-governmental organisations (NGOs)

  • national research laboratories.

These institutions, across both health and agriculture, are explored in such diverse locations as Amazonia, China, Finland, Israel, the UK and the USA. This volume exhibits a clear thematic coherence around the impact of the new genetics and their associated technologies on new social formations, and the case studies included have a significant international focus, showing a balance between theoretical and empirical approaches in this rapidly changing field.

This innovative new volume will be of interest to postgraduates and professionals in the fields of sociology, social anthropology, science and technology studies, and environmental studies.

Knowledge and Institutions (Knowledge and Space Book 13)

by Johannes Glückler

This open access book bridges the disciplinary boundaries within the social sciences to explore the role of social institutions in shaping geographical contexts, and in creating new knowledge. It includes theorizations as well as original empirical case studies on the emergence, maintenance and change of institutions as well as on their constraining and enabling effects on innovation, entrepreneurship, art and cultural heritage, often at regional scales across Europe and North America. Rooted in the disciplines of management and organization studies, sociology, geography, political science, and economics the contributors all take comprehensive approaches to carve out the specific contextuality of institutions as well as their impact on societal outcomes. Not only does this book offer detailed insights into current debates in institutional theory, it also provides background for scholars, students, and professionals at the intersection between regional development, policy-making, and regulation.

A Critical Approach to Climate Change Adaptation: Discourses, Policies and Practices (Routledge Advances in Climate Change Research)

This edited volume brings together critical research on climate change adaptation discourses, policies, and practices from a multi-disciplinary perspective. Drawing on examples from countries including Colombia, Mexico, Canada, Germany, Russia, Tanzania, Indonesia, and the Pacific Islands, the chapters describe how adaptation measures are interpreted, transformed, and implemented at grassroots level and how these measures are changing or interfering with power relations, legal pluralismm and local (ecological) knowledge. As a whole, the book challenges established perspectives of climate change adaptation by taking into account issues of cultural diversity, environmental justicem and human rights, as well as feminist or intersectional approaches. This innovative approach allows for analyses of the new configurations of knowledge and power that are evolving in the name of climate change adaptation.

This volume will be of great interest to students and scholars of climate change, environmental law and policy, and environmental sociology, and to policymakers and practitioners working in the field of climate change adaptation.

Thinking Time Geography: Concepts, Methods and Applications (Routledge Studies in Human Geography)

by Kajsa Ellegård

Time-geography is a mode of thinking that helps in the understanding of change in society, the wider context and ecological consequences of human actions. This book presents its assumptions, concepts and methods, and example  applications.

The intellectual path of the Swedish geographer Torsten Hägerstrand is a key foundation for this book. His research contributions are shown in the context of the urbanization of Sweden, involvement in the emerging planning sector and empirical studies on Swedish emigration. Migration and innovation diffusion studies paved the way for prioritizing time and space dimensions and recognizing time and space as unity. From these insights time-geography grew. This book includes the ontological grounds and concepts as well as the specific notation system of time-geography - a visual language for interdisciplinary research and communication. Applications are divided into themes: urban and regional planning; transportation and communication; organization of production and work; everyday life, wellbeing and household division of labor; and ecological sustainability – time-geographic studies on resource use.

This book looks at the outlook for this developing branch of research and the future application of time-geography to societal and academic contexts. Its interdisciplinary nature will be appealing to postgraduates and researchers who are interested in human geography, urban and regional planning and sociology. 

Freshwater Governance for the 21st Century (Global Issues in Water Policy Book 6)
