Download or read No Outlaws in the Gender Galaxy PDF, written by Chayanika Shah and published by Zubaan. This book was released on 2015-11-06 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The constructed “naturalness” of a world made up of two sexes, two genders, and heterosexual desire as the only legitimate desire has been continuously questioned and challenged by those marginalised by these norms. This forces us to ask some important questions: How is gender really understood and constructed in the world that we inhabit? How does it operate through the various socio-political-cultural structures around us? And, most crucially, how is it lived? No Outlaws in the Gender Galaxy answers these questions with a research study that attempts to understand gender through the lives of queer persons assigned gender female at birth. The lived realities of the respondents, echoing in the book through their voices, help to interrogate gender as well as provide clues to how it can be envisioned or revisioned to be egalitarian. This book explores how gender plays out in public and private institutions like the family, educational institutions, work and public spaces. Looking at each of these independently, it elaborates the specific ways in which binary gender norms are woven into each arena and it also explores the multiple ways in which interlocking systems of heteronormativity, casteism, class and ableism are enmeshed within patriarchy to create exclusion, marginalisation, pathologisation and violence. This book illustrates the multiplicity of ways in which people live gender and testifies that even if there are gender laws, in a just world there can be no gender outlaws. Published by Zubaan.
Download or read Psychonephrology 1 PDF, written by Norman B. Levy and published by Springer Science & Business Media. This book was released on 2013-06-29 with total page 287 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Major nephrological and psychological organizations have, at best, set aside only small portions of their programs for papers or panels devoted to the psychological aspect of patients with end-stage renal disease. Thus, the increased need for information concerning the psychological aspects of end-stage renal disease has been met by occasional journal articles, professional peer discussions, small portions of national confer ences, and informal conversations and consultations with people with clinical and research experience in these areas. The First International Conference on Psychological Factors in Hemodialysis and Transplantation arose out of a need to have a forum in which the major people involved in treatment and research in this area could share their latest work among themselves and with the registrants. The initial encouragement for organizing such a conference came from the rank and file of nephrology social workers, nephrology nurses, and liaison psychiatrists and psychologists. In early 1977 I had decided that I would make an effort to organize such a meeting and asked the two other individuals most closely identified with major research in this area, Atara Kaplan De-Nour and Harry S. Abram, to join me in planning this confer ence. With their support and suggestions concerning the program, I embarked upon an attempt to raise financial backing for it. I was some what surprised to find that the many equipment and drug companies supporting nephrological conferences were not greatly interested in this one.

This book is for teens and young adults who are looking forward to rise above their fears, depart from mediocrity afoot a complete transformation and efficacy of their lives by first realizing who they are and finding their Gods given purpose in life before they embark on a life journey with a sole purpose of becoming successful in all areas of their lives if they adhere to their purpose and live their passion. Parents: As you embark on a venture to gentrify your teens life, this book will enhance your parenting acumen and help you to undertake your parenting responsibility of inculcating your teens and young adults with the moral responsibilities that they need in order to always make positive decisions not worth regrets in their present and future lives. Since empowerment is a very vital act of mentorship that fosters self-identity and ameliorates an individuals quality of life, ignorance is bliss only when the knowledge of God is not involved. Its through our relationship with God that we come to find our purpose, gain confidence, become courageous and suppress our fears in life as we progress towards our destiny. As we seek to find our God mandated purpose in our lives, its very imperative to know that life comes in phases where victory of your present stage invigorates your progress in the next stage. Nevertheless, our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. Its our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Most of the times we ask ourselves; who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and successful? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your constrained thinking does not serve or impact the world. Your life is not a mistake. Every human being has a purpose which should dictate him or her to live a purpose driven life. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. Its not just in some of us; its in everyone. As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to follow suit. As we are emancipated from our own fear, our presence and perseverance automatically emancipates others.
Download or read Signifying God PDF, written by Sarah Beckwith and published by University of Chicago Press. This book was released on 2003-12 with total page 312 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In Signifying God, Sarah Beckwith explores the most lavish, long-lasting, and complex form of collective theatrical enterprise in English history: the York Corpus Christi plays. First staged as early as 1376, the plays were performed annually until the late 1500s and involved as much as a tenth of the city in multiple performances at a dozen or more locations. Introducing a radical new understanding of these plays as "sacramental theater," Beckwith shows how organizing the plays served as a political mechanism for regulating labor, and how theater and sacrament combined in them to do important theological work. She argues, for instance, that the theology of Corpus Christi in the resurrection plays can only be understood as a theatrical exploration of eucharistic absence and presence. Beckwith frames her study with discussions of twentieth-century manifestations of sacramental theater in Barry Unsworth's novel Morality Play and Denys Arcand's film Jesus of Montreal, and the connections between contemporary revivals of the York Corpus Christi plays and England's heritage culture.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What do you know about the occult? Michael Deville knew very little. He is suffering from the effects of a terminal illness and lives with his wife Helena Rose, his only companion, who is a working nurse. During the long periods of time when he finds himself alone, Michael occupies himself by reading through old papers and documents that he found in the spare room, some of which were decidedly unusual. Michael finds himself experiencing particularly disturbing hallucinations that seem to be connected in some indefinable way to the strange manuscripts he had discovered. Are they dreams; or perhaps visions of times from a distant past? Times that held him trapped in history – his history? What is the connection between The Count and the Convent of the Golden Orb? Who is the Man in Black?

Book excerpt: Warren Commission Report is the result of the investigation regarding the assassination of United States President John F. Kennedy. The U.S. Congress passed Senate Joint Resolution 137 authorizing the Presidential appointed Commission to report on the assassination of President John F.

The Commission's findings have proven controversial and have been both challenged and supported by later studies.

Download or read Global Population PDF, written by Alison Bashford and published by Columbia University Press. This book was released on 2014-01-28 with total page 512 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Concern about the size of the world's population did not begin with the "population bomb" in 1968. It arose in the aftermath of World War I and was understood as an issue with far-reaching ecological, agricultural, economic, and geopolitical consequences. The world population problem concerned the fertility of soil as much as the fertility of women, always involving both "earth" and "life." Global Population traces the idea of a world population problem as it evolved from the 1920s through the 1960s. The growth and distribution of the human population over the planet's surface came deeply to shape the characterization of "civilizations" with different standards of living. It forged the very ideas of development, demographically defined three worlds, and, for some, an aspirational "one world." Drawing on international conference transcripts and personal and organizational archives, this book reconstructs the twentieth-century population problem in terms of migration, colonial expansion, globalization, and world food plans. Population was a problem in which international relations and intimate relations were one. Global Population ultimately shows how a geopolitical problem about sovereignty over land morphed into a biopolitical solution, entailing sovereignty over one's person.

Download or read Embodied Being PDF, written by Jeffrey Maitland and published by North Atlantic Books. This book was released on 2016-02-09 with total page 176 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Embodied Being is unique among books on manual therapy, offering an "infrastructure for intuition," a philosophical approach to what is essentially a practical process of diagnosis and treatment with one's hands. Grounded in the author's decades of practice as a Rolfer and Zen meditator, the book offers a first-of-its-kind three-step method for training practitioners how to see holistically, given the enormously important role perception plays in assessing clients. By exposing many of the unconscious philosophical assumptions that occlude our understanding the depths of manual therapy, Embodied Being promises to illuminate the full scope of body-mind healing, from the point of view of both the practitioner and the person receiving the work. Embodied Being states the principles of intervention and shows practitioners how to use them to answer three fundamental questions common to all forms of therapy: What do I do first? What do I do next? and When am I finished? Perplexed that most practitioners are unable to answer these questions and simply rely on their intuition, Maitland sets out to define what makes a truly life-altering bodywork session, drawing on his understanding of Goethe, Merleau-Ponty, and other great thinkers. Maitland proposes that the holistic approach in bodywork is capable of creating new possibilities for the future by erasing the patterns that bind us to a dysfunctional past. Such sessions can so profoundly reshape the body that there is no longer any room for emotional torment--thus manual therapy can free bodies of physical pain, releasing the innate joy within the core of all human beings. Ultimately, giving and receiving manual therapy teaches both practitioners and clients how to move with grace, open their hearts, and touch the numinous. From the Trade Paperback edition.
Download or read Assignment Yggdrasil PDF, written by Christopher James Dubey and published by Andrews UK Limited. This book was released on 2014-10-06 with total page 177 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Originally published by Chipmunkapublishing, and now thoroughly revised, Assignment Yggdrasil is a groundbreaking novel about how far governments can go in the fight against bioterrorism. Set during the presidency of George W. Bush and the height of the War on Terror, the United States Department of Defense has secretly garnered intelligence confirming that, within a decade, groups intent on mass murder will possess bioweaponry capable of annihilating either the USA…or the entire human species. A special operation, Assignment Yggdrasil, has begun in an attempt to avert the so–called ‘Ragnarok,’ doomsday. Although they appear human, subjects have been genetically converted from human to transhuman, given immunity to all biological pathogens known to infect humans, as well as special abilities from other species. Only the new species, the transhuman, is predicted to survive the bioterrorist Ragnarok. The government has staked its bets on these transhumans, hoping they will rebuild American democracy in the resulting chaos. Yet the government is performing this transhumanism covertly, infecting thousands of citizens with the virus through their food, drink, and medicine. Some test subjects have died unwittingly under experimentation and the government is hiding everything. An equally furtive resistance has formed, led by various radical groups who dispute the bioethics of the operation. In a precarious showdown with the government, the rebels question whether the removal of humanity is really a gift and if the end justifies the means.

Kara and a young Cuban man from the hurricane center found they were the only ones remaining that could repel the assault. Can Kara overcome her phobia of hurricanes and thwart the attack or will she succumb to her deepest fears? Will the enemy take control of Florida?

Diveley illuminates how the seemingly insignificant favors given to government employees were strung together to form a stream of events that made the entire attack possible.
