The flap of a butterfly's wing in one part of the world can cause devastating storms on the other side, just as the word "lesbian"—a force full of vitality and world-changing creativity—can destroy families and bring down governments. Evoking the ancient worlds of pre-Vedic and Sapphic lovers, medieval jonglaresas, and nuns "fingering petals and hips," as well as the contemporary world of circuses, global politics, friendship, betrayal, and death, the poems in this collection fold in on themselves, exploding into concentric rings of meaning, rich in symbol and metaphor.

A gripping thriller with a shocking twist!

'Kendrick Lamar understands and employs blues, jazz, and soul in his music, which makes it startling. His work is more than merely brilliant; it is magic' Toni Morrison 'Lamar is a man living on a real and metaphorical peak, with one eye trained on the heavens, the other searching for stories in the valley below' Guardian __________ Kendrick Lamar is at the top of his game. He has been described as the poet Laurette of hip-hop, perceptive, philosophical, unapologetic, fearless, and an innovative storyteller whose body of work has been compared to James Joyce and James Baldwin. He is a visionary who will go down as history as one of the most important artists of all time. But what's so striking about Kendrick Lamar, aside from his impressive accolades, is how he's effectively established himself as a formidable opponent of oppression, a force for change. Through his confessional poetics, his politically charged anthems, and his radical performances, Lamar has become a beacon of light for many people in America. Written by veteran journalist and music critic Marcus J. Moore, this is the first biography of Kendrick Lamar. It's the definitive account of his coming-of-age as an artist, his resurrection of jazz, his profound impact on a racially fraught America, and his emergence as the bona fide King of Rap. The book traces not only Lamar's powerful impact on music but also on our current society, especially under the weight of police brutality, divisive politics, and social injustice. With exclusive interviews with his family, friends, and record producers, this book is the must-read for any fan. The Butterfly Effect is the extraordinary, triumphant story of a modern lyrical prophet and an American icon who has given hope to those buckling under the weight of systemic oppression, reminding everyone that through it all, "we gon' be alright". __________ 'By the end of listening to his first full album, I felt like I knew everything about him. He brings you into his world with his lyrics in a way that really paints a clear picture' Eminem 'I love everything about his music. I can literally listen to his music and become a kid growing up with all the struggles in the inner city, but at the same time [learn] all the lessons it taught that we use as men today.' Lebron James 'For a gentle dude, he throws a righteous punch; I wouldn't get in the way of it. No single artist will ever be the antidote to a generation's malaise, but just identifying some of the problems really helps' Bono 'Kendrick Lamar is a master of storytelling' New Yorker

A fascinating, entertaining dive into the long-standing relationship between humans and insects, revealing the surprising ways we depend on these tiny, six-legged creatures. Insects might make us shudder in disgust, but they are also responsible for many of the things we take for granted in our daily lives. When we bite into a shiny apple, listen to the resonant notes of a violin, get dressed, receive a dental implant, or get a manicure, we are the beneficiaries of a vast army of insects. Try as we might to replicate their raw material (silk, shellac, and cochineal, for instance), our artificial substitutes have proven subpar at best, and at worst toxic, ensuring our interdependence with the insect world for the foreseeable future. Drawing on research in laboratory science, agriculture, fashion, and international cuisine, Edward D. Melillo weaves a vibrant world history that illustrates the inextricable and fascinating bonds between humans and insects. Across time, we have not only coexisted with these creatures but have relied on them for, among other things, the key discoveries of modern medical science and the future of the world's food supply. Without insects, entire sectors of global industry would grind to a halt and essential features of modern life would disappear. Here is a beguiling appreciation of the ways in which these creatures have altered--and continue to shape--the very framework of our existence.

X91;Making change happen’ is an important challenge strategists face today. Not only do many of our organizations need change, whole industries and systems need to transform in order to survive and thrive in a connected society. In this study the complexity-based design approach of imagineering is presented and evaluated for its effectiveness in realizing organizational innovation in a sustainable way.0The method approaches organizational change as an emerging process of self-organization. By redesigning the business concept in the narrative mode a kind of bottom-up revitalizing process is effectuated which ignites the collective creativity of involved stakeholders in a strategically envisioned direction. Instead of focusing on changing behavior as conventional change-methods do, the method focuses on achieving a mind-shift in order to effectuate ‘transformation by inspiration’. The effectiveness of the method is evaluated predominantly through two cases which span a period of approximately ten years: the case of the city of Antwerp, and the case of the oldest Belgian retail-chain, Veritas. Based on insights gained from this study, the author reflects on the implications of the imagineering design method on four fields of study: transformative organizing, strategic thinking, design thinking in management and management education.

One of the most beautiful creations made from God is the colorful, free-spirited butterfly. But it was not always this way; it first had to go through several stages before she became that breath taking creature. Women, are like these butterflies, who must go through stages of transformation, in order to reach that final stage of freedom and tranquility that we have now achieved. In the beginning, women were conditioned to believe they were not equal to men. That is, until recently, when thanks to an organization called "I AM WOMAN", love and harmony between men and women have been rekindled along with co-independence, and an equality on every level and in every way. "The Butterfly Effect" is a program designed mainly for women. It is a program that teaches them how their mind works and that the information that is taken-in-through their five sensory systems is assimilated by their mind, and imprinted as a picture on their subconscious mind. That picture, like a magnet, begins to attract all the necessary pieces to, simultaneously, manifest it in our lives. So, women, be careful what you picture because that's exactly what you're going to get! And also remember, the important thing is not to get what you want but to want what you get! Through this simple awareness, we know the tremendous 'Power of Pictures.' As Aristotole said, "there is nothing in the universe that wasn't first a picture in someone's mind." And what picture is more beautiful than that of the two shimmering butterflies joining wings on their fight across the spectacular "Bridge of Equality," in love and harmony? So ladies and gentlemen, wherever you may be, imprint that gorgeous picture of the amazing butterflies that you truly are on your subconscious mind and gently, "I Am Butterfly, Watch Me Soar!".

What happens if you perturb a small part of a large system, and then you wait a while? If the system is chaotic, one expects the butterfly effect to push the state far from its original trajectory. I will present an analysis of this phenomenon in the setting of a strongly interacting quantum gauge theory, using the tools of gauge-gravity duality. The original state corresponds to a black hole geometry, and the perturbation is represented by a particle falling through the horizon. As time passes, the boost of the particle grows exponentially, creating a shock wave that implements the butterfly effect. Building on this framework, I will relate and explore the dynamics of chaos and the region behind the horizon of a black hole. This thesis is based on two papers written with Stephen Shenker. It should not be cited without also referencing those papers.

In this wise and provocative book, Emily Mathews grounds her intelligent policy philosophy in common sense, which is particularly refreshing as our political system grows increasingly dysfunctional. At a time in our nation's history when the only focus should be the shared goal of productive progress, the author shows why we are in a political standoff that stifles all desire for compromise, represses productive political conversation, and prevents our country from being the very best it can be. Ms. Mathews' innovative thought process collides with her talent for entertaining storytelling. The result is a book that you cannot put down. Born and raised in Jasper, Texas, Emily returned to her childhood home in 2004 and was a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives, a highly anticipated campaign that was ultimately a casualty of the state legislature's bitter redistricting fiasco. During the campaign, she witnessed firsthand the unraveling of our political system, but also became convinced that it is possible to repair shattered hopes, restore honorable motivation, and renew the American spirit. Carefully researched and deeply affecting, The Butterfly Effect responds to America's political impasse with a resounding call for a radically transforming approach. At the heart of the book are recommendations on how to move beyond the status quo and build the foundation for a new political vision - one that looks outside the traditional corridors of power and encourages every American to take a more proactive attitude to their government. She writes, "The reason true change eludes us is that we always attempt it within the constraints of a broken system. That is simply not going to work. We can no longer expect half-measures and incremental ideas to work in systems that have collapsed; rather, we must commit to an unprecedented full and fundamental restructuring. In contrast to our current political environment, we can ignite public imagination, cultivate a tolerance for dissension, and strive for an eagerness to cooperate. Imagine the difference if we reject finger pointing and the blame game and go a step further: look inward, feel a compulsion to act, and introduce potential solutions into the political conversation. The greatest privilege of living in America is the freedom we have to continually assess our government, our leaders, and our political and moral direction. Without that privilege America would be lost. With it, anything is possible.

Sarah Haywood's The Cactus meets Graeme Simsion's The Rosie Project in this heartwarming tale of an introvert, her lack of social conduct and empirical data-driven approach to people and relationships. The monarch. The glasswing. The red admiral. These are the names of some of Greta Oto's closest friends. As an entomologist who specializes in butterflies, Greta far prefers the company of bugs to humans, with the exception of her twin brother, Danny, though they've recently had a falling out. So she lands a research gig in the rainforest and leaves it all behind. But when Greta learns that Danny has suffered an aneurysm and is now hospitalized, she abandons her research and hurries home to the middle of nowhere America to be there for her brother. But there's only so much she can do, and unfortunately just like insects, humans don't stay cooped up in their hives either--they buzz about and... socialize. Coming home means confronting all that she left behind, including her lousy soon-to-be sister-in-law, her estranged mother, and her ex-boyfriend Brandon who has conveniently found a new non-lab-exclusive partner with shiny hair, perfect teeth, and can actually remember the names of the people she meets right away. Being that Brandon runs the only butterfly conservatory in town, and her dissertation is now in jeopardy, taking that job, being back home, it's all creating chaos of Greta's perfectly catalogued and compartmentalized world. The Butterfly Effect is a warm, uplifting story about the behavior of bugs (and people), how they can be altered by high-pressure climates, confused by breakdowns in communication, and most importantly, how they can rehabilitate themselves and each other.

For over 25 years, Rex has taught with one simple theme;you matter to God.Somehow we have missed that. The unconditional mercy and grace that flow from the heart of God draws us to Him. Nothing we will ever do, good or bad, would ever cause the heart of God to love us any more or less than he does right now. When that truth soaks in, you and I will be able to live the life that God has called us to live.The smallest of things we do and say, matter deeply to God and to those around us. Grace, extended to others, has a ripple effect. When we step out of our comfort zone and touch the world around us, something happens.Broken-hearted people start to mend.They begin to connect the dots to God.That is a good thing, a very good thing.It can cause a butterfly effect of grace.

The Butterfly Effect: Flutters of Wisdom and Kindness accentuates the compelling need for random acts of kindness. Each reader of this book can remember someone from his or her past who has made an indelible influence on his or her life. A random act of kindness can resonate with goodness for each person who participates in favor. Unfortunately, other types of acts can have an opposite effect. This work contains hundreds of “flutters” of wisdom and kindness from an eclectic composition of sources from Aristotle to Emile Zola, from Plato to Rudyard Kipling, from Booker T. Washington to Leo Tolstoy, Karl Marx to Janis Joplin. This work attempts to synthesize different thought and observations from people, past and present, from different cultures of east and west that will indicate that we all share an impetus to a common goal . . . if we help each other. Though this may be deemed a work of scholarship, it is presented in non-scholarship terms. Though the subject matters (philosophy, sex, religion, and politics) are matters of gravitas, the answers can be quite simple, if we permit them to be. This is not a “how to” book. Each person has the sovereign right to determine his or her destiny. Nevertheless, interesting and controversial points are covered so that each person may make a more informed choice about how to determine well-being. If the reader pledges to help another, thousands of others will be pledging to help the reader. A Zen Buddhist koan asks, “How does the drop of water know it is part of a wave?” A drop always has a ripple. A flutter of kindness or wisdom can shake the world.

Empowering, inspiring and straight-talking, this is the book that is every teenage girl's best friend. The butterfly is a symbol of transformation. It reminds us that we are all able to change. We can make choices and we are in control. We can choose to replace the messages that shout 'You are not enough' - not hot enough, thin enough, talented enough, popular enough - every time we open a magazine, watch a music video or go into a clothes store. The Girl with the Butterfly Tattoo encourages girls to question the limiting messages advertisers, the media and our culture keep pushing: that a girl's greatest worth is her looks, and beauty comes in only one size and shape. It inspires and empowers girls to find their strength and be true to their own hearts and minds. This book is for you if: * You're tired of having days when everything just seems to make you feel 'less' - less beautiful, less powerful, less happy, less in control. * You've ever been frozen out by a friend and it has wrecked your whole day. * You, or a friend, are trying to deal with something major - binge-drinking, drugs, anorexia or bulimia, self-harm, depression. * You'd prefer to have your own style, not dress head-to-toe in the same labels as everyone else. * You have piles of homework and want to find the best way to study that suits you. * You'd like some tips on creating the future you want after school 'Finally a book for teenage girls that does not patronise or attempt to police them! The Girl with the Butterfly Tattoo empowers teen girls to make their own choices.' -- Nina Funnell, writer, women's rights advocate and recipient of Australian Human Rights Commission Community (Individual) Award, 2010
