Argyll is well known for its magnificent scenery, breathtaking coastline and picturesque villages. But hidden among its beautiful hills and glensand on its islands is evidence of an extraordinary industrial past. Minerals have been mined in Argyll for millennia, and from the 1700s lead, copper, zinc, silver, nickel and gold were sought by landowners as a way to exploit their estates, as well as by entrepreneurs and prospectorswanting to make a quick buck or, preferably, a considerable fortune. Mining spurred the development of the county's infrastructure, bringingbursts of prosperity to remote communities and a 'frontier spirit' redolent of the American West.In this book, Marian Pallister tells the story of Argyll's mining past. Her research into official records, letters and other documentary material isset beside the personal experience of those involved at all levels in the industry itself and the local communities whose lives it changed forever.

Everyone agrees that America is polarized, with ever-hardening positions held by people less and less willing to listen to one another. No one agrees on what to do about it. One solution that hasn’t yet been tried, says Adam Hamilton, is for thinking persons of faith to model for the rest of the country a richer, more thoughtful conversation on the political, moral, and religious issues that divide us. Hamilton rejects the easy assumptions and sloppy analysis of black and white thinking, seeking instead the truth that resides on all sides of the issues, and offering a faithful and compassionate way forward. He writes, "I don't expect you to agree with everything I've written. I expect that in the future even I won't agree with everything I've written here. The point is not to get you to agree with me, but to encourage you to think about what you believe. In the end I will be inviting those of you who find this book resonates with what you feel is true, to join the movement to pursue a middle way between the left and the right - to make your voices heard - and to model for our nation and for the church, how we can listen, learn, see truth as multi-sided, and love those with whom we disagree."

Many people believe they can fix all their problems if only they had more money. You probably believe so too. However, the truth is that without the right knowledge and habits, people who have money are bound to create more problems for themselves. Habits are powerful because they shape our very existence and ultimately our future. They influence our health, wellbeing, and even our quality of life. To be frank, so many people know this, yet they have been unable to alter their bad habits because their brains have been wired, through repetition, to adopt a formula and sequence of action, making it difficult to change.Habits control everything we do and may lead us straight to an unhappy ending if we do not act with tact and intelligence.Very few people have spent time trying to understand their relationship with money. They get confused mid-month when they look at their bank accounts and ask themselves where all their money went, sometimes they go on to imagine there is a black hole sucking up the money in their pockets, causing everything to vanish into thin air.Well, I would love to agree with you, but self-denial will never make all our troubles go away. Everybody thinks about making money, but nobody stops to think about what happens after we get this money and how to manage it so that we can leave a legacy for ourselves and our unborn generations.History is rife with great men, many of whom because of their poor relationship with money and habits, went from grace to grass or, worse, had their children squander all they had amassed and wiped their footprints from the sands of time. This book will explain why even celebrated geniuses have failed to succeed at wealth creation while those labelled as misfits, psychologically impaired, dullards, dropouts relegated to the bottom of the class barrel have continued to amass wealth as footballers, baseball players, software engineers, IT gurus instead of lawyers, accountants, bankers, doctors, and economic analysts.'Richer You' will walk you through the mental adjustments necessary to unlocking your wealth potential and dealing with your money blocks while helping you face your fears. It will help you understand and repair your relationship with money, and I will virtually hold your hand while you rewrite your money scripts and introduce you to the one habit that can change everything.

The Making of Black Lives Matter

Started in the wake of George Zimmerman's 2013 acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin, the #BlackLivesMatter movement has become a powerful and uncompromising campaign demanding redress for the brutal and unjustified treatment of black bodies by law enforcement in the United States. The movement is only a few years old, but as Christopher J. Lebron argues in this book, the sentiment behind it is not; the plea and demand that "Black Lives Matter" comes out of a much older and richer tradition arguing for the equal dignity - and not just equal rights - of black people. The Making of Black Lives Matter presents a condensed and accessible intellectual history that traces the genesis of the ideas that have built into the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Drawing on the work of revolutionary black public intellectuals, including Frederick Douglass, Ida B. Wells, Langston Hughes, Zora Neal Hurston, Anna Julia Cooper, Audre Lorde, James Baldwin, and Martin Luther King Jr., Lebron clarifies what it means to assert that "Black Lives Matter" when faced with contemporary instances of anti-black law enforcement. He also illuminates the crucial difference between the problem signaled by the social media hashtag and how we think that we ought to address the problem. As Lebron states, police body cameras, or even the exhortation for civil rights mean nothing in the absence of equality and dignity. To upset dominant practices of abuse, oppression and disregard, we must reach instead for radical sensibility. Radical sensibility requires that we become cognizant of the history of black thought and activism in order to make sense of the emotions, demands, and argument of present-day activists and public thinkers. Only in this way can we truly embrace and pursue the idea of racial progress in America.
