Excerpt from Our City Civilization When the families of Noah came upon a plain, in the land of Shinar, and began building a city, they thought to build a tower to reach unto heaven and the Lord scattered them abroad by confounding their language, so they could not understand one another's speech. Even since the time man first began building cities and a few of the people became ambitious to acquire wealth "to tower unto heaven" they were suddenly confounded by a muddle in their speech, which we call the labor question, and which gives rise to a dispute concerning the increase in wealth that fails to minister to the happiness of all the people. When nations are composed of builders and are intent on working out their destiny a few of the people soon become the owners of the wealth leaving the multitude of workers destitute at the very time when their contentment should have been insured by the accumulation of wealth.

Our War on Ourselves University Of Toronto Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Our approach to knowing and doing is based on delegating physical phenomena to physicists, biological phenomena to biologists, social phenomena to sociologists, economic phenomena to economists, and so on. This approach to knowledge and practice works very well when one category of phenomena dominates (as in mechanical and technical systems), but does not work when many categories of phenomena make significant contributions (as in the biological and cultural spheres). As a result, our civilization succeeds in its scientific and technical endeavours yet fails in dealing with communities and ecosystems. Following his groundbreaking Labyrinth of Technology and Living in the Labyrinth of Technology, Willem H. Vanderburg's Our War on Ourselves explores the type of war we have unleashed on our lives by emphasizing discipline-based processes. The work also illuminates how we can achieve a more balanced, livable, and sustainable future by combining technical and cultural perspectives in our educational and institutional settings.

Massage Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Massage: Its Principles and Practice This book is not intended to serve as a Text-book for the massage student. For such many books are already on the market, and there is no need to add to their number. Moreover, it will be recognised by the experienced masseur that many of the views herein expressed are unorthodox and are therefore dangerous diet for one whose main object in the immediate future is to satisfy examiners. I have undertaken the heavy task of writing a book in war-time, at the request of my publishers, with two main objects in view. The first is to try to point out, as far as I can, to the practising masseurs and masseuses, what I consider to be the rationale of massage treatment, and to endeavour to introduce into their technique more generally than is at present the case the care and gentleness, which appear to me as the key to the riddle of the exact nature of the massage which will most speedily yield a successful result. The six months' training at present in vogue is totally inadequate for efficiency or thorough teaching. My aim is to supplement both as far as can be done by the study of a book. The second object I had in mind - which, I fear, is less likely to be realised - was that I might be able to place in the hands of my professional brethren a book to which they can refer when issuing instructions to their masseurs. A medical man who fails to issue adequate instructions may often be responsible for the failure for which his masseur is blamed. Another fertile source of disappointment is found in the lack of experience inseparable from a course of training limited to six months. When a medical man orders massage he should not try to hand over his responsibility to the masseur. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

The race for space begins on October 4, 1957 as the Soviet Union stuns the world and launches the first man made satellite - a feat until then only read about in science fiction. America is caught unprepared for 1957 and must answer this embarrassment to the world by proving its superiority; however, each time America tries to launch a satellite - let alone test a new rocket - it fails. . How could America have taken a back seat in the missile race? . How did America take the lead and win the race to the moon in as little as ten years? . How did America gain the necessary technology and ingenuity to not only launch men into outer space, but also land them on the moon and safely return? . Why did man even go to the moon? . How has the space program affected our lives today? Casey spent his life researching the space program and interviewing many people involved in it, from scientists to astronauts, to find answers to these questions. Casey, an accomplished technical writer, astronomy columnist and artist, began to write this book after he was inspired as a young child when he witnessed, along with the rest of the world, Apollo 11 land three men on the moon in 1969. Casey enjoyed educating students about the space program and wrote this book to share an enthusiasm about science, especially for those never thought about looking up at the night sky and wondering about the stars. Casey wanted students to ask questions and to gain a perspective on how incredible science is. But mostly, he wanted to inspire students to pursue a career in science to continue the peaceful exploration of space for generations to come.

Substance of an Argument of Samuel F. Vinton for the Defendants Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Substance of an Argument of Samuel F. Vinton for the Defendants: In the Case of the Commonwealth of Virginia Vs; Peter M. Garner and Others Mr. Vinton said: May it please your Honors: I cannot but regret that my learned friend (the Hon. John M. Patton,) who opened this case for the Commonwealth of Virginia, has somewhat impaired the value of so good an argument, by the introduction into it, both at its commencement and conclusion, of a topic so very foreign to the subject now under consideration. To all else in his argument, I listened with that pleasure and delight, which high intellectual effort never fails to inspire. It will be understood, that I refer to what was said by him on the subject of slavery, and of the correspondence now going on, and not yet brought to a close, between the Executives of the two States, making mutual demands of certain persons as fugitives from justice. These are matters not before the Court, and their connection with the case now before us, is not very apparent. If the argument of my learned friend had been an address to a popular assembly, or even before a Jury of the country, I should have been at no loss to understand the object in bringing these topics into it. But when they are addressed to this grave and dignified tribunal of Judges, sitting here to decide a naked question of law, I am unable to perceive their relevancy, or in what way they can aid the Court in coming to a right decision of the case. Much has been said, and eloquently, by the learned counsel in praise of the institution of Slavery, and in derogation of the abolitionists. I did not come here, may it please your Honors, to engage in those questions that are at issue between the slaveholders and the abolitionists - I am not now called upon to assail the one or defend the other - the case before us has nothing to do with either - and I cannot permit myself to be drawn aside, or seduced into a discussion of this sort by any thing that has been, or can be said, on that subject. I have the same remark to make about the correspondence between the Executive of Virginia and of Ohio. The Governor of Ohio has seen fit to send me here to argue the case now before the Court, and to protect, as well as I may, those rights of sovereignty and of soil that are brought in question in it. But he has not solicited my aid in his correspondence with Virginia. If he be right, he needs no defence from me. If he be wrong, he best knows how to defend himself. And whether he be right or wrong, I have no authority to speak for him here before this tribunal, about a matter which it is not called upon to decide, and over which it has no jurisdiction or control. I shall also pass over in the same way all that was so eloquently said about the comparative power and prowess of the people of Virginia and Ohio.

Use the methodology in this study guide to design, manage, and operate a balanced enterprise cybersecurity program that is pragmatic and realistic in the face of resource constraints and other real-world limitations. This guide is an instructional companion to the book Enterprise Cybersecurity: How to Build a Successful Cyberdefense Program Against Advanced Threats . The study guide will help you understand the book's ideas and put them to work. The guide can be used for self-study or in the classroom. Enterprise cybersecurity is about implementing a cyberdefense program that will succeed in defending against real-world attacks. While we often know what should be done, the resources to do it often are not sufficient. The reality is that the Cybersecurity Conundrum-what the defenders request, what the frameworks specify, and what the budget allows versus what the attackers exploit-gets in the way of what needs to be done. Cyberattacks in the headlines affecting millions of people show that this conundrum fails more often than we would prefer. Cybersecurity professionals want to implement more than what control frameworks specify, and more than what the budget allows. Ironically, another challenge is that even when defenders get everything that they want, clever attackers are extremely effective at finding and exploiting the gaps in those defenses, regardless of their comprehensiveness. Therefore, the cybersecurity challenge is to spend the available budget on the right protections, so that real-world attacks can be thwarted without breaking the bank. People involved in or interested in successful enterprise cybersecurity can use this study guide to gain insight into a comprehensive framework for coordinating an entire enterprise cyberdefense program. What You'll Learn Know the methodology of targeted attacks and why they succeed Master the cybersecurity risk management process Understand why cybersecurity capabilities are the foundation of effective cyberdefenses Organize a cybersecurity program's policy, people, budget, technology, and assessment Assess and score a cybersecurity program Report cybersecurity program status against compliance and regulatory frameworks Use the operational processes and supporting information systems of a successful cybersecurity program Create a data-driven and objectively managed cybersecurity program Discover how cybersecurity is evolving and will continue to evolve over the next decade Who This Book Is For Those involved in or interested in successful enterprise cybersecurity (e.g., business professionals, IT professionals, cybersecurity professionals, and students). This guide can be used in a self-study mode. The book can be used by students to facilitate note-taking in the classroom and by Instructors to develop classroom presentations based on the contents of the original book, Enterprise Cybersecurity: How to Build a Successful Cyberdefense Program Against Advanced Threats .

What is new about how teenagers communicate through services such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram? Do social media affect the quality of teens' lives? In this eye-opening book, youth culture and technology expert Danah Boyd uncovers some of the major myths regarding teens' use of social media. She explores tropes about identity, privacy, safety, danger and bullying. Ultimately, Boyd argues that society fails young people when paternalism and protectionism hinder teenagers' ability to become informed, thoughtful and engaged citizens through their online interactions. Yet despite an environment of rampant fear-mongering, Boyd finds that teens often find ways to engage and to develop a sense of identity. Boyd's conclusions are essential reading not only for parents, teachers and others who work with teens, but also for anyone interested in the impact of emerging technologies on society, culture and commerce in years to come. Offering insights gleaned from more than a decade of original fieldwork interviewing teenagers across the United States, Boyd concludes reassuringly that the kids are all right. At the same time, she acknowledges that coming to terms with life in a networked era is not easy or obvious. In a technologically mediated world, life is bound to be complicated.

Educational Theory of Plutarch (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Educational Theory of Plutarch The popularity of Plutarch as the author of the Parallel Lives has never really waned. It is thus surprising that the other half of his extant work, the essays generally called by the collective title of the Moralia, should for long periods together be almost unread and unremembered. I have found in these essays an interest even greater than I had been led to expect from my love of the Lives. In the Moralia Plutarch, the philosopher, the priest, the citizen, the father, reveals himself with an intimacy rare among the ancient Greeks. Above all, we see him as a teacher, the possessor, as we are, of an inheritance of imperishable thought, pledged to a certain environment which is portrayed vividly in his pages, one who, in his lifelong devotion to his calling, is second to few of the teachers of old time, second perhaps only to his chosen master, Plato. The reflection in the Moralia seems wonderfully alive, and in some ways might almost be a portrait of to-day. Plutarchs teaching never fails to be suggestive, even when in some of its details it seems to clash with modern conditions and requirements. To several distinguished lovers of Plutarch I have to express cordial thanks for the invaluable assistance they gave me in the course of my work.
