    Impossible Citizens by Neha Vora
    pdf | 1.91 MB | English | Isbn:B00DOSTI9Y | Author: Vora, Neha | PAge: 259 | Year: 2013


    Description:

    Indian communities have existed in the Gulf emirate of Dubai for more than a century. Since the 1970s, workers from South Asia have flooded into the emirate, enabling Dubai's huge construction boom. They now compose its largest noncitizen population. Though many migrant families are middle-class and second-, third-, or even fourth-generation residents, Indians cannot become legal citizens of the United Arab Emirates. Instead, they are all classified as temporary guest workers. In Impossible Citizens, Neha Vora draws on her ethnographic research in Dubai's Indian-dominated downtown to explore how Indians live suspended in a state of permanent temporariness. While their legal status defines them as perpetual outsiders, Indians are integral to the Emirati nation-state and its economy. At the same time, Indians-even those who have established thriving diasporic neighborhoods in the emirate-disavow any interest in formally belonging to Dubai and instead consider India their home. Vora shows how these multiple and conflicting logics of citizenship and belonging contribute to new understandings of contemporary citizenship, migration, and national identity, ones that differ from liberal dematic models and that highlight how Indians, rather than Emiratis, are the quintessential-yet impossible-citizens of Dubai.

    Media and Development by Richard Vokes
    pdf | 16.39 MB | English | Isbn:0415745543 | Author: Vokes, Richard; | PAge: 317 | Year: 2017


    Description:

    At the start of the 21st century, the relationship between media and development has never felt more important. Following a series of 'media revolutions' throughout the developing world - beginning with the advent of cheap transistor radio sets in the late-1960s, followed by the rapid expansion of satellite television networks in the 1990s, and the more recent explosion of mobile telephony, social media and the internet - a majority of people living in the Global South now have access to a wide variety of Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs), and live in media saturated environments.  

    Yet how can radio, television and mobile phones be most effectively harnessed towards the goals of purposive economic, social, and political change? Should they be seen as primarily a provider of channels through which 'useful information' can be delivered to target populations - in the hope that such information will alter those populations' existing behaviours? Or should they be seen as a tool for facilitating 'two-way communication' between development providers and their recipients (i.e. as technologies for improving 'participatory development')? Or should new media environments be approached simply as sites in which people living in the developing world can define 'development' on their own terms?

    This timely and original book - which is based on a critical reading of the relevant literatures, and on the author's own extensive primary research - introduces readers to all of these questions, and helps them to reach their own informed positions on each. It also examines the history of, and current debates regarding, media representations of development. Drawing on case studies from all over the world - including: 'hate radio' in Rwanda; theatre for development in India; telenovelas in Latin America; mobile banking and money in Africa, and; GIS and humanitarianism in Haiti - it will be of interest to all undergraduate and postgraduate students of media and development; international development professionals, and; simply to anyone with an interest in how media does, can, or should, change the world.

    Nightmare in Holmes County by Patrick Meechan
    epub | 1.46 MB | English | Isbn:1954528000 | Author: Patrick Meechan | PAge: 244 | Year: 2021


    Description:

    One man's journey through hell on Earth.

    Imagine a nightmare in which your darkest fears are coming true. Your life seems to spiral further towards hell with each passing day, yet you can't wake up. You're constantly dominated by unthinkable circumstances as everything you hold dear is in danger of being torn from your grip, and the lines are blurred between the natural and the paranormal. You're entrenched in a spiritual battle against ancient curses, and the satanism and witchcraft practiced by those around you.

    Nightmare in Holmes County takes you on one man's journey through hell on earth, in the heart of Amish country. Though the story seems impossible, it is true to real life and this Second Edition includes even more evidence to support these claims.

    Injustice at Work by Francois Dubet
    pdf | 3.92 MB | English | Isbn:B018W7SD0Q | Author: Francois Dubet | PAge: 254 | Year: 2015


    Description:

    Though it is difficult to describe what a just world should be, everyone is able to denounce injustice when he/she is a victim or a witness of it. Based on a long-term study of workers, this new book tests and expands upon prevailing theories of justice by Rawls, Nozick, Taylor, Walzer, and other important philosophers. Injustice at Work describes the way workers perceive social injustice. It reveals why they so often feel unequal, scorned, dominated, and alienated at work. The book develops three principles of justice-equality, merit, and autonomy-showing how individuals combine them in singular moral and social experiences that constitute people's relation to society. Dubet also shows, in a liberal and globalized society, why it has become more and more difficult to denounce the social causes of injustice and fight them.

    People Count by Susan Landau
    epub | 263.41 KB | English | Isbn:0262045710 | Author: Susan Landau | PAge: 179 | Year: 2021


    Description:

    An introduction to the technology of contact tracing and its usefulness for public health, considering questions of efficacy, equity, and privacy.
    How do you stop a pandemic before a vaccine arrives? Contact tracing is key, the first step in a process that has proven effective: trace, test, isolate, and treat. Smartphones can collect some of the information required by contact tracers-not just where you've been but also who's been near you. Can we repurpose the tracking technology that we carry with us-devices with GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and social media connectivity-to serve public health in a pandemic? In People Count, cybersecurity expert Susan Landau looks at some of the apps developed for contact tracing during the COVID-19 pandemic, finding that issues of effectiveness and equity intersect.
    Landau explains the effectiveness (or ineffectiveness) of a range of technological interventions, including dongles in Singapore that collect proximity information; India's...

    Cultural Economics by Christiane Hellmanzik
    pdf | 7.29 MB | English | Isbn:B08FBG3YW6 | Author: Christiane Hellmanzik; | PAge: 156 | Year: 2020


    Description:

    The cultural industries and their products and services make a significant contribution to the global economy and are seen as strategic sectors for sustainable economic growth. However, industries such as art, design, film, music, performing arts, publishing, television and radio, present particular challenges for economic analysis. They can be goods or services that are both public and private, protected by copyright and freely available, consumed and created, as well as susceptible to fashion and technological development. In this fascinating introduction to the cultural economy, Christiane Hellmanzik examines the market for creative work and reveals the economic relationships between human creativity, intellectual property and technology. Through the careful use of case studies, the book explores the core economic considerations such as supply and demand, competition and pricing, alongside macro trends such as globalization, digitalization and the internet, which are changing the industry's business models.

    Poke the Box by Seth Godin
    epub | 193.62 KB | English | Isbn:B00NLISBCC | Author: Godin, Seth | PAge: 95 | Year: 2014


    Description:

    f you're stuck at the starting line, you don't need more time or permission. You don't need to wait for a boss's okay or to be told to push the button; you just need to poke.

    Poke the Box is a manifesto by bestselling author Seth Godin that just might make you uncomfortable. It's a call to action about the initiative you're taking--in your job or in your life. Godin knows that one of our scarcest resources is the spark of initiative in most organizations (and most careers)--the person with the guts to say, "I want to start stuff."

    Poke the Box just may be the kick in the pants you need to shake up your life.

    Raising An Emotionally Intelligent Child by John Gottman
    epub | 328.7 KB | English | Isbn:B005HF2VI2 | Author: John Gottman | PAge: 255 | Year: 2011


    Description:

    Intelligence That Comes from the Heart

    Every parent knows the importance of equipping children with the intellectual skills they need to succeed in school and life. But children also need to master their emotions. Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child is a guide to teaching children to understand and regulate their emotional world. And as acclaimed psychologist and researcher John Gottman shows, once they master this important life skill, emotionally intelligent children will enjoy increased self-confidence, greater physical health, better performance in school, and healthier social relationships. Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child will equip parents with a five-step "emotion coaching" process that teaches how to:

    * Be aware of a child's emotions

    * Recognize emotional expression as an opportunity for intimacy and teaching

    * Listen empathetically and validate a child's feelings

    * Label emotions in words a child can understand

    * Help a child come up with an appropriate way to solve a problem or deal with an upsetting issue or situation

    Written for parents of children of all ages, Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child will enrich the bonds between parent and child and contribute immeasurably to the development of a generation of emotionally healthy adults.

    World's Best Mother by Nuria Labari
    epub | 2.2 MB | English | Isbn:B08M63TQ95 | Author: Nuria Labari | PAge: 224 | Year: 2021


    Description:

    A thirty-five-year-old writer decides she wants to have children. Rounds of IVF treatments and several years later, she has two daughters and sits down to write this book. World's Best Mother is a sublime journey-through pregnancy, the mothering of small children, marriage, an affair-which unfolds in a heady mix of anecdote, imagination, and social commentary. Clever and insightful, the narrator examines the myth, but also the scam, of motherhood, openly dialoguing with voices of the past that in one way or another have fueled her condition as a woman: from the legendary hominid Lucy-"the mother of humanity"-to Cinderella, passing through Plato, Mother Teresa, Darwin, Maupassant, and Simone de Beauvoir along the way. Humor, love, and horror converge in this lively auto-fictional battle between the intensity of child rearing and the writer trying to fight her way out.

    Rethinking the Body in Global Politics by Kandida Purnell
    pdf | 4.75 MB | English | Isbn:1138337323 | Author: Kandida Purnell | PAge: 181 | Year: 2021


    Description:

    This book rethinks the body in global politics and the particular roles bodies play in our international system, foregrounding processes and practices involved in the continually contested (re/dis)embodiment of both human bodies and collective bodies politic.

    Purnell provides a new, innovative, and detailed theory of bodily (re)making and un-making that shows how bodies are simultaneously (re)made and moved and (re)make and move other bodies and things. Presented in the form of reflective/reflexive and theoretically innovative essays, the book explores: bodies in general and their precarious, excessive, ontologically insecure, and emotional facets; the fleshing out of contemporary necro(body)politics; and the visual-emotional politics embodied through the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The empirical analyses feed into contemporary IR debates on British and American politics and international relations and the Global War on Terror, while also speaking to broader and interdisciplinary, theoretical literature on bodies/embodiment, visual politics, biopolitics, necropolitics, and affect/emotion, and feelings.

    Transformation in Christ by Dietrich von Hildebrand
    epub | 412.03 KB | English | Isbn:9780898708691 | Author: von Hildebrand, Dietrich | PAge: 391 | Year: 2011


    Description:

    Recognized as a modern spiritual classic and perhaps Dietrich von Hildebrand's greatest work, this sublime and practical study gives a penetrating analysis of the true path to holiness for those who love Christ. The first requisite is the person's desire for change, and with that fundamental attitude in mind, von Hildebrand devotes a chapter to each of the successive spiritual attitudes necessary for those who strive for Christian perfection. The Beatitudes are treated with beauty and depth in an uncompromising challenge to every serious Christian to put into practice these teachings of Christ.

    Taking Frege at his Word by Joan Weiner
    pdf | 3 MB | English | Isbn:978-0198865476 | Author: Weiner, Joan | PAge: 346 | Year: 2021


    Description:

    Frege is widely regarded as having set much of the agenda of contemporary analytic philosophy. As standardly read, he meant to introduce--and make crucial contributions to--the project of giving an account of the workings of (an improved version of) natural language. Yet, despite the great admiration most contemporary philosophers feel for Frege, it is widely believed that he committed a large number of serious, and inexplicable, blunders. For, if Frege really meant to be constructing a theory of the workings of (some version of) natural language, then a significant number of his stated views--including views that he claimed to be central to his philosophical picture--are straightforwardly wrong. But did Frege mean to be giving an account of the workings of language? He himself never actually claimed to be doing this, and, indeed, never even described such a project.

    Taking Frege at his Word offers an interpretation that is based on a different approach to his writings. Rather than using the contributions he is taken to have made to contemporary work in the philosophy of language to infer what his projects were, Joan Weiner gives priority to Frege's own accounts of what he means to be doing. She provides a very different view of Frege's project. One might suspect that, on such a reading, Frege's writings would have purely antiquarian interest, but this would be a mistake. The final two chapters show that Frege offers us new ways of addressing some of the philosophical problems that worry us today.

    The Sociological Imagination by C Wright Mills
    pdf | 8.98 MB | English | Isbn:B000SEOIK6 | Author: C. Wright Mills | PAge: 255 | Year: 2000


    Description:

    C. Wright Mills is best remembered for his highly acclaimed work The Sociological Imagination, in which he set forth his views on how social science should be pursued. Hailed upon publication as a cogent and hard-hitting critique, The Sociological Imagination took issue with the ascendant schools of sociology in the United States, calling for a humanist sociology connecting the social, personal, and historical dimensions of our lives. The sociological imagination Mills calls for is a sociological vision, a way of looking at the world that can see links between the apparently private problems of the individual and important social issues.
