Carjacked is an in-depth look at our obsession with cars. While the automobile's contribution to global warming and the effects of volatile gas prices are is widely known, the problems we face every day because of our cars are much more widespread and yet much less known -- from the surprising $14,000 per year that the average family pays each year for the vehicles it owns, to the increase in rates of obesity and asthma to which cars contribute, to the 40,000 deaths and 2.5 million crash injuries each and every year. Carjacked details the complex impact of the automobile on modern society and shows us how to develop a healthier, cheaper, and greener relationship with cars.

Read the words they risked everything for! This landmark volume collects more than a hundred years of the most important public rhetoric on gay and lesbian subjects. In the days when homosexuality was mentioned only in whispers, a few brave souls stood up to speak for the rights of sexual minorities. In Speaking for Our Lives: Historic Speeches and Rhetoric for Gay and Lesbian Rights (1892-2000), their stirring words have finally been gathered together, along with the political manifestoes, broadsheets, and performance pieces of the gay and lesbian liberation movement. Speaking for Our Lives comprises speeches and manifestoes prompted by events ranging from demonstrations to funerals. Scholars and researchers will appreciate the brief commentary introducing each piece, which discusses the author, the occasion, and the political and social contexts in which it first appeared. You’ll find the words of a broad variety of individuals and groups, including: the Victorian humanist and crusader Robert Ingersoll key groups such as the Mattachine Society, Homosexual Law Reform Society, Gay Activists Alliance, and International Gay Association activists and educators Robin Morgan, Joseph Bean, and Dr. Franklin Kameny, artists and journalists of the movement, such as John Eric Larsen, Joan Nestle, Barbara Grier, and Jim Kepner elected officials, including Bella Abzug, Ed Koch, Eleanor Holmes Norton, Gerry Studds, Tammy Baldwin, and Bill Clinton Many of these documents have long been out of print.

Me, my Self, and I FIVE STEPS TO BECOMING YOUR real Self: “ THE UNTOLD STORY “ (Mind & Body) Most of us want to understand more about ourselves and who we are in everyday life. The reality in which we live may resemble somebody else’s life and dreams (our First Program), causing us to repeat patterns of our parents and family members, this happens at the cellular level (behavioural cells) and is recorded in the same way as DNA. Through our senses, we are creating an internal picture (the movie of our life) and like a movie it will follow a script which shapes and influences our beliefs and values in all our choices. This book is a five-step Self-realization kit to create a new script in Light of our new choices and evolution, taking us on the road to becoming our real Self! We can reprogram ourselves with repetition in the same way we learn a new skill or sport. Just as our ancestors knew and practiced, this will involve our Mind & Body in connection with the planet and its living things. What affect others affects us as well – we all live in the same fish thank. The last chapter explains numerology and its meaning in our everyday life, because every fruit has its season! All through the book I use simple explanations about my understandings of the process of life to make it easy for you. I hope you will find your Self in this book. My life has been a continuous investigation into the mystery of the human Mind & Body behaviour. I have been using these same five steps in my life, starting from the bottom and heading towards the top. The process continues. God bless you, Gianluca Boschi Dreams are our unconscious Mind (heart) at its very best!

Unlike traditional forms of Numerology, which add or reduce larger sets of numbers, Zeus Sensor Numerology correlates the 10 singular numbers of 0-9 to the Five Elements of Earth, Metal, Water, Wood, and Fire. Adding a Yin and Yang polarity to each element creates a matching ten-components. Users of our books and mobile apps can identify the innate energy that comprises our Body and Soul, as well as recognizing the natural, cyclical energy in our environment. Using the traditional Eastern theory of Bazi or Body Source Code, Zeus Sensor reveals the distinctive energy in the universe at our birth time and birthplace that comprises our configuration. This innate psychological and physiological energy can be manipulated through the use of numbers and colors to create personal balance and harmony. Using the traditional Eastern theory of timekeeping based on the 10 Heavenly Stems and 12 Earthly Branches, Zeus Sensor applies a singular number and color to each of the 60 components of a clock or calendar. This external energy is not ongoing and irregular; instead it is cyclical and predictable. Zeus Sensor Numerology removes all arithmetic, matching a singular number to the natural components of our birth time and place using Body Source Code. With the use of numbers and colors based on the Five Elements, we can easily manipulate our innate energy, as well as the energy in our environment to match our unique structure.

In this bestselling timeless classic, Peter Gzowski recounts the 1980-81 season he spent travelling around the NHL circuit with the Edmonton Oilers. These were the days when the young Oilers, led by a teenaged Wayne Gretzky, were poised on the edge of greatness, and about to blaze their way into the record books and the consciousness of a nation. While the story of the early Oilers embodies the book, The Game of Our Lives is much more than a retelling of one season in the life of an NHL team. Unlike any book ever written in the annals of hockey, Gzowski beautifully weaves together the anatomy of a modern NHL team with the magnificent history of the game to create one of the best books about hockey in Canada. Here are the great teams and the great players through the ages—Morenz, Richard, Howe, Orr, Hull—the men whose rare and indefinable genius on the ice exemplified the speed, grit and innovation of the game. The Game of Our Lives is the best book on the Canadian passion for hockey; a wondrously perceptive account of the hold the game has on Canadians. —Jack Granatstein, The National Post

Many introductory texts claim to make sociology relevant to student interests. Perhaps no other text has done this so completely - and engagingly - as Connecting Sociology to Our Lives. Tim Delaney not only uses popular and contemporary culture examples, he explains sociology thoroughly within the frame of the contemporary culture of students - a culture shaped by political, economic, and environmental trends just as much as by today's pop stars. This book will help academics to engage their students in sociology through the prism of their own culture. It involves students in critical thinking and classroom discussion through the book's many 'What Do You Think?' inserts, and will inspire them to careers with the book's unique chapter, 'Sociology's Place in Society: Completing the Connection'.

i>From Adam to Noah-The Numbers Game," shows that the genealogy of Adam in Genesis 5 is a puzzle. Genesis 5 reports that people lived for over 900 years.Where are the clues that the genealogy of Genesis 5 is a puzzle?Here's the first: 1x56 years: Lamech's birth to Adam's death2x56 + 1 years: Lamech's birth to Enoch's disappearance 3x56 years: Lamech's birth to Seth's death Here's the second clue: 416 years: Lamech's death to Kenan's death 416 years: Lamech's birth to Mahalalel's death 416 years: Enosh's death to the birth of Noah's sons And the third clue: 1x84 years: Lamech's birth to Enosh's death 2x84 + 416 years: Jared's death to Noah's death 3x84 years: Enoch's birth to Lamech's birth A collection of real human ages would never display a pattern like this. Solving the puzzle reveals a fully functional, 2500+ year old calendar that is as accurate as our modern calendar. The extracted calendar is based on a 364-day year with a 369-day leap year and a 365-day year that occurs once every 33 years. The average length of a year for this 33-year calendar is 365.242424 days which is very near the length of the vernal equinox year of 365.242374 days on which our calendar is based. It is now clear that the Bible contains science. It's ancient science, but it's real science. The Bible writers were ancient scientists and the Bible is a repository of their work. If you're a scientist, engineer or technician and you've found it impossible to take the Bible seriously, now you can. Just as we were unable to recognize this calendar as a calendar, the science of the Bible has not been recognized as science because its' authors spoke in parables and riddles. This was a part of the Biblical culture. The book of Proverbs says that it will teach the reader how to understand the "words of the wise" which consist of proverbs, riddles and figures (puzzles). "Besides being wise, the Preacher also taught the people knowledge, weighing and studying and arranging proverbs with great care." (Ecc 12:9 RSV) "My mouth shall speak wisdom; the meditation of my heart shall be understanding. I will incline my ear to a proverb; I will solve my riddle to the music of the lyre. (Psa 49:3-4 RSV) So when Jesus taught using parables and riddles he was following a tradition that was ancient when Solomon was king. This kind of riddle extends far beyond the genealogy of Genesis 5. Genesis 1 to 11 contains a collection of riddles woven into a single fabric. The riddles continue through the book of Revelation. Once we understand these riddles we discover that the Bible actually contains a consistent, workable philosophy that can actually explain the way the world works. "
