Putin's Russia: How It Rose, How It Is Maintained, and How It Might End

In this groundbreaking collection, nine of Russia's leading scholars and experts describe and analyze some of the Vladimir Putin regime's key structural strengths and weaknesses and look at their implications for both the present and the future.

Chess: Top Beginners Tactics You Must Know !

Dominate Chess Tactics, Chess Strategies, Openings & Closings and Start Playing Like a Pro !

This book will guide you through the basics of chess, from its origins to the rules of the modern game.

By the end of the book, not only will you have an understanding of the rules of chess, but you will also be able to understand the top beginners strategies which if practiced will allow you to challenge some of the best players in the world.

Chess is one of the world's most popular board games, and is played by millions of people from all walks of life in parks, homes, online and tournaments. This two-player game is played on a checkered board with 64 squares arranged in an eight by eight grid called a chessboard. The game begins with each player possessing 16 pieces, 8 pawns, two rooks (sometimes called castles), two bishops, two knights, a queen and a king.

The different player's pieces are colored differently and are usually either black or white, though colors may vary. Regardless of the color variation though, each 'team' is referred to as either black or white. The objective of the game is to 'checkmate' the opponent's king by placing it in such a position that it cannot escape capture.

There are other methods to winning the game, such as when an opponent forfeits or resigns from the match. Forfeitures are normally as a result of the opponent losing too many pieces, or if a checkmate is seen as inevitable. There are also circumstances where the game ends in a draw for various reasons, meaning that neither player wins.

The first official world chess championship was held in 1886 between Wilhelm Steinitz and Johannes Zukerfort. The victor and thus the first official World Champion was Wilhelm Seinitz. Since the creation of the World Chess Federation in Paris in 1924, the best chess players in the world have been awarded the title of Grandmaster, which is the highest accolade a chess player can get apart from world champion.

The latter half of the 20th century saw computers being programmed to play chess, with many home computers now being able to play with such a high level of sophistication that they can outwit some of the best human players. The first computer to ever beat a reigning world champion was the computer Deep Blue, which beat Garry Kasparov in a match in 1997.

Beyond Good and Evil (Golden Deer Classics) [The Classics Collection #04]



Download

in EPUB format, also available for Kindle or in PDF

Beyond Good and Evil (German: Jenseits von Gut und Bose), subtitled "Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future" (Vorspiel einer Philosophie der Zukunft), is a book by the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, first published in 1886.

It takes up and expands on the ideas of his previous work, Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but approached from a more critical, polemical direction.

In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche attacks past philosophers for their alleged lack of critical sense and their blind acceptance of Christian premises in their consideration of morality. The work moves into the realm "beyond good and evil" in the sense of leaving behind the traditional morality which Nietzsche subjects to a destructive critique in favour of what he regards as an affirmative approach that fearlessly confronts the perspectival nature of knowledge and the perilous condition of the modern individual.

President Barack Obama: The Kindle Singles Interview (Kindle Single)

In this Kindle Singles Interview, President Barack Obama decried the "change in culture" that has changed our view of the American Dream. "There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous," the President said. "Kids weren't monitoring everyday what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success." He addressed the jobs issue from a personal perspective, reflecting on how his own life might have been different had he not experienced success in politics. "I could picture myself being a good teacher," the President mused.



In the interview, which took place on July 30, 2013, at an Amazon facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Obama discussed the increasing need for government programs that can actually make a difference. Sticking close to his standard message, he spoke frankly about the increasing polarization of American politics since the Great Recession and Republican Party intransigence over his agenda. On a personal note, he reflected that he and First Lady Michelle Obama are constantly reminding their daughters of the "slightly unreal environment that they're in," as children of privilege in a world constrained by unemployment and recession.



The interview was conducted by David Blum. Blum works for Amazon as the editor of Kindle Singles. He began his career as a staff reporter for The Wall Street Journal, and has been the editor-in-chief of The Village Voice, the New York Press and 02138 Magazine. He was previously a writer and editor at The New York Times Magazine, and a contributing editor at New York and Esquire magazines. He has written two books: "Flash in the Pan: The Life and Death of an American Restaurant" (1992), and "Tick...Tick...Tick...: The Long Life & Turbulent Times of 60 Minutes" (2004). He received his B.A. degree in English literature at the University of Chicago.

Psychology: The Workplace Psychology Guide

The Simple Guide to Workplace Psychology Tips for the Employee

Psychology has always been a lot more than a university course. In fact we use the techniques and theories of psychology in our day to day work. Sometimes we do it subconsciously through habit or conditioning. One of the most important parts of our life is work. We spend close to 8 hours a day on the job. When you consider the time spent on commuting and sleep; work seems to be this thing that envelops virtually everything we do. It is a serious business because that is where we earn an income to buy essentials like food, shelter and clothing. At the same time work is also the place where we meet different types of people. Many have met their future spouses and countless friends on the job. It is therefore very important to be able to adjust well to the workplace and all its challenges.

This book is conceived as a simple guide on how an employee can use the theories of psychology in their day to day life. It is not meant to be a definitive discussion of the theories of psychology. In any case it would take thousands of books to completely cover them. Instead this books gives you the reader simple tips and insights that you can use to get on better with your colleagues. The other benefit is that if you are a good colleague then chances are that you will find it easier to progress in your career. The book is divided into nine chapters which tackle specific theories in psychology and then try to apply them to the day to day situations which various workers find themselves in. This book can work for you at any level and any job. It does not matter whether you are a nurse, engineer, politician, miner or a multitude of other things. The book is equally applicable to the top executives and the lowliest people in the chain of command.

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (Wisehouse Classics - Original 1792 Edition)

A VINDICATION OF THE RIGHTS OF WOMAN: WITH STRICTURES ON POLITICAL AND MORAL SUBJECTS (1792), written by the 18th-century British feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, is one of the earliest works of feminist philosophy. In it, Wollstonecraft responds to those educational and political theorists of the 18th century who did not believe women should have an education. She argues that women ought to have an education commensurate with their position in society, claiming that women are essential to the nation because they educate its children and because they could be "companions" to their husbands, rather than mere wives. Instead of viewing women as ornaments to society or property to be traded in marriage, Wollstonecraft maintains that they are human beings deserving of the same fundamental rights as men.

Wollstonecraft was prompted to write the Rights of Woman after reading Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord's 1791 report to the French National Assembly, which stated that women should only receive a domestic education; she used her commentary on this specific event to launch a broad attack against sexual double standards and to indict men for encouraging women to indulge in excessive emotion. Wollstonecraft wrote the Rights of Woman hurriedly to respond directly to ongoing events; she intended to write a more thoughtful second volume but died before completing it.

While Wollstonecraft does call for equality between the sexes in particular areas of life, such as morality, she does not explicitly state that men and women are equal. Her ambiguous statements regarding the equality of the sexes have since made it difficult to classify Wollstonecraft as a modern feminist, particularly since the word and the concept were unavailable to her. Although it is commonly assumed now that the Rights of Woman was unfavourably received, this is a modern misconception based on the belief that Wollstonecraft was as reviled during her lifetime as she became after the publication of William Godwin's Memoirs of the Author of A VINDICATION OF THE RIGHTS OF WOMAN (1798). The Rights of Woman was actually well received when it was first published in 1792. One biographer has called it "perhaps the most original book of [Wollstonecraft's] century".

Self-Mastery: Actualize Your Potential and Enjoy a Fulfilling Life

In the prior book, Say Goodbye to Low Self-Confidence and Failure, author PN Murray

revealed the hidden dangers of lacking high self-esteem and fortitude.

In this latest book, Self-Mastery: Actualize Your Potential and Enjoy a Fulfilling Life, she

shows you how to command the confidence that one needs to bring about a more rewarding

lifestyle.

Self-Mastery teaches you all of the steps and strategies needed, in order to conquer all types of negative emotions and setbacks, including:

? Defining what self-mastery is, and what it isn't;

? How to attain self-mastery;

? What it takes to build your dream life with self-mastery;

? Revealing the precise core emotions that arise from self-mastery;

...and much more.

Once you've bid adieu to low confidence and consistent failures, you can then welcome

self-mastery into your life, and watch it prosper.

Empathy

Our society functions by separating us from each other: almost as soon as we're born, we are taught to divide people into groups and see some as more deserving (and more human) than others. Everything from massive inequality to war depends on this process of categorisation and dehumanisation.

In this provocative, inspiring piece of writing, Raoul Martinez asks how and why our empathy is controlled, and argues for a very different world - one of deeper understanding and indiscriminate compassion.

Interviews with the Masters: A Companion to Robert Greene's Mastery

A companion to the #1 New York Times Bestseller Mastery

More than 20,000 hours of research and thought went into Robert Greene's stunning book, Mastery. In a departure from his previous works, Robert Greene interviewed nine contemporary masters, including tech guru Paul Graham, animal rights advocate Temple Grandin, and boxing trainer Freddie Roach, to get their perspective on their paths to greatness. Those interviews are now available to readers for the first time. Interviews with the Masters presents more than 700 pages of revealing insight directly from these contemporary Masters; from how they learn and think, to how they put it all together and create.

You'll learn how

-Paul Graham used a hacker's mentality to create a programing language and a billion dollar portfolio.

-Santiago Calatrava combined the disciplines of art, architecture, and engineering to design revolutionary moving structures.

-Daniel Everett solved the 300 year old mystery of the Piraha language, forever changing the linguistics field and challenging Chomsky's Universal Grammar theory.

-Freddie Roach's trademark techniques made him one of the most well-known boxing trainers in the world, guiding talents like world champion Manny Pacquiao and UFC Champion Georges St. Pierre.

-Yoky Matsuoka pioneered a new field called "neurobotics."

-Cesar Rodriguez Jr. went from the bottom of his Air Force class to become the "Last

American Ace."

-Temple Grandin emerged from a chaotic childhood with autism to become a leader in animal sciences.

-Teresita Fernandez used her fascination with alchemy to design beautiful conceptual art.

-VS Ramachandran's obsession with anomalies led to major discoveries that solved bizarre neurological syndromes like phantom limbs and body-identity disorders.

This companion to the #1 New York Times Bestseller Mastery is a playbook to the lives of today's Masters that readers can use to guide them on their own path to Mastery.

British Muslim Soldier

It isn't nice but you're an animal, so you can do it, dressed in green and brown and black waiting to be attacked and smiling because you had bullets for teeth.

Adnan Sarwar, a Pakistani boy from Burnley, joined the British Army - the White Man's Army. Why did he do it? To prove he was as white as his friends? For Queen and Country? Or to work out who he was - British, Muslim or a Soldier? Perhaps he could be all three.

'British Muslim Soldier' is Adnan's journey through the battlegrounds of war, race and identity, facing up to the often brutal realities of these fraught warzones. There is racism, family ties, tedious routine, enemies and torture. But what Adnan's story really comes down to is love - love for his family, for his fellow squaddies - and a deep-rooted sense of identity and belonging.

...when did these clothes fit so well? When did Corporal become an older brother and when did the army become a mother? When did I become a British soldier?

Quantum Gravity: Reasoning with New Physics

The reproducibility of facts is the hallmark of a natural science, the impossibility of counting up to infinity that of a measuring process, and the "law of great numbers" that of statistics. A statement like "Nothing will come from nothing, and nothing gets lost" will yield conservation laws. Bell's own interpretation of his no-go theorems, then, will directly give Quantum Gravity, and its iteration the unification of all types of forces of nature ("New Physics").

The present paper will outline the reasoning of Quantum Gravity and of New Physics rather than their technical details - as far as all that allows for separating those issues from each other.

Thermodynamic principles are imposing 2 alternative channels to us: A closed system will yield the reaction channel conserving probabilty, and an open system the dynamic channel. Causality will mark the open channel, entanglement the reaction channel. Parities are the key to understanding a black hole free of singularities.

Space, time, and mass can be counted from the non-valence parts of a particle as occurrence rates of special double-quant properties; Higgs is dispensable. The spectrum of stable particles derives from the representation of our static multiverse. Its building universes give us the illusion of motion (like by a flip book).

Lagrange's formalism and its canonical quantization prove as classical dead locks of obsolete centuries. The multitude of positive results - like the fine-structure constant calculated correctly, e.g. - speak in favour of New Physics, the total absence of "broken" quantum numbers in favour of a deeper "understanding" of nature.

Women's rights and the family in a changing global world

Womens rights and the family in a changing world

by Hearts and Minds Media

Women's rights are the rights and entitlements claimed for women and girls worldwide, and formed the basis for the women's rights movement in the nineteenth century and feminist movement during the 20th century. In some countries, these rights are institutionalized or supported by law, local custom, and behavior, whereas in others they are ignored and suppressed. They differ from broader notions of human rights through claims of an inherent historical and traditional bias against the exercise of rights by women and girls, in favor of men and boys.

Issues commonly associated with notions of women's rights include, though are not limited to, the right: to bodily integrity and autonomy; to be free from sexual violence; to vote; to hold public office; to enter into legal contracts; to have equal rights in family law; to work; to fair wages or equal pay; to have reproductive rights; to own property; to education

Rethinking Interdisciplinarity across the Social Sciences and Neurosciences (Neuroscience Intersections)

This book offers a provocative account of interdisciplinary research across the neurosciences, social sciences and humanities. Setting itself against standard accounts of interdisciplinary 'integration,' and rooting itself in the authors' own experiences, the book establishes a radical agenda for collaboration across these disciplines. Rethinking Interdisciplinarity does not merely advocate interdisciplinary research, but attends to the hitherto tacit pragmatics, affects, power dynamics, and spatial logics in which that research is enfolded. Understanding the complex relationships between brains, minds, and environments requires a delicate, playful and genuinely experimental interdisciplinarity, and this book shows us how it can be done. This book is open access under a CC-BY license and funded by The Wellcome Trust.

Politics

Walden and Civil Disobedience

Walden by noted transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau, is a reflection upon simple living in natural surroundings. The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and manual for self-reliance. First published in 1854, it details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond, amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. The book compresses the time into a single calendar year and uses passages of four seasons to symbolize human development. By immersing himself in nature, Thoreau hoped to gain a more objective understanding of society through personal introspection. Simple living and self-sufficiency were Thoreau's other goals, and the whole project was inspired by transcendentalist philosophy, a central theme of the American Romantic Period. As Thoreau made clear in his book, his cabin was not in wilderness but at the edge of town, about two miles (3 km) from his family home.

Hope for the Hollow: A Thirty-Day Inside-Out Makeover for Women Recovering from Eating Disorders

Hungry for Hope? Approximately eleven million Americans suffer from anorexia, bulimia, and compulsive overeating. Among those not counted in that statistic are those who fall outside of the diagnostic criteria but struggle daily with a poor body image, a fear of gaining weight, and a sense of being out of control. Not merely worldly vanity, these struggles are very much an issue among women in the church, who love and serve the Creator, while struggling to appreciate and care for their bodies as His creation. Hope for the Hollow is a practical, relevant devotional/ journal guide to gently encourage and inspire daughters of God to dare to believe what their Creator says about them, and to replace the lies of their enemy with the glorious, revealing truth of God's word as it applies to their bodies, the temples of the Holy Spirit. Each of the thirty devotionals includes an applicable passage of Scripture dealing with underlying themes of eating disorders such as guilt, shame, control, fear, and pride. Drawing upon her own experiences as a believer recovering from anorexia, Jena candidly shares her heart and relays the lessons she has learned along the way. Jena plans to promote this devotional through her blog, Facebook pages, twitter and via her speaking engagements at churches, women's groups, treatment centers, and recovery groups. Few devotionals have been published dealing specifically with eating disorders and the issues they present. This is a war that is fought and won with both God's word and loving, heart-penetrating encouragement, both of which speak from the pages of Hope for the Hollow.

Post-Ottoman Coexistence: Sharing Space in the Shadow of Conflict (Space and Place)

In Southeast Europe, the Balkans, and Middle East, scholars often refer to the "peaceful coexistence" of various religious and ethnic groups under the Ottoman Empire before ethnonationalist conflicts dissolved that shared space and created legacies of division. Post-Ottoman Coexistence interrogates ways of living together and asks what practices enabled centuries of cooperation and sharing, as well as how and when such sharing was disrupted. Contributors discuss both historical and contemporary practices of coexistence within the context of ethno-national conflict and its aftermath.

The Communist Manifesto

The Communist Manifesto (originally Manifesto of the Communist Party) is an 1848 political pamphlet by German philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. Commissioned by the Communist League and originally published in London (in the German language as Manifest der kommunistischen Partei) just as the revolutions of 1848 began to erupt, the Manifesto was later recognised as one of the world's most influential political manuscripts. It presents an analytical approach to the class struggle (historical and present) and the problems of capitalism and the capitalist mode of production, rather than a prediction of communism's potential future forms. The Communist Manifesto summarizes Marx and Engels' theories about the nature of society and politics, that in their own words, "The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles." It also briefly features their ideas for how the capitalist society of the time would eventually be replaced by socialism, and then finally communism.

The Prince (Special Student Edition

Welcome Again Jesus Christ

The Awakening (Ad Classic Library Edition)

Edna Pontellier struggles with her role as a housewife, and yearns for social freedom. Her increasingly unorthodox views on femininity and motherhood fuel her desires and passion, despite the prevailing social attitudes of the South. On a quest of self discovery, Edna flees her domestic role in search of love and spiritual freedom in a world that isn't ready for her. The Awakening is one of the earliest novels that focuses on women's issues without condescension. The novel was particularly controversial upon publication because Chopin didn't condemn Edna's desire for an affair. Instead, Chopin focused on human behaviour and the complexities of social structures while exploring the banalities of everyday life and the consequences of social norms.

Pamela, or Virtue Rewarded

Samuel Richardson's epistolary novel Pamela, or Virtue Rewarded, published in 1740, tells the story of a young woman's resistance to the desires of her predatory master. Pamela is determined to protect her virginity and remain a paragon of virtue; however, the heroine's moral principles only strengthen the resolve of Mr. B and Pamela soon finds herself imprisoned against her will. The young woman's affection for her captor gradually grows and she becomes aware of a love that combines eros and agape.



Richardson's classic novel created a sensation upon its publication: the novel's radical departure from the traditional comic plot violated convention and its portrayal of a young female servant daring to assert herself proved to be even more controversial. Clare Corbett and cast read from the original, unrevised text that left an indelible mark on the conscience of an entire nation.

Liberating Power: Asian Feminist Theological Perspectives: Papers from Ecclesia of Women in Asia's 6th Conference

Power permeates every relationship. The emotional, economic, social, political and cultural dimensions of power form the substratum of relations between individuals, nations, ethnicities, cultural groups, and communities. However, power is generally experienced as overt domination or subtle manipulation, which is too often normalized as an inevitable element of daily life. The abusive potential of power comes to play in the hegemonic controls exercised through religious indoctrinations and other socio-cultural ideologies that legitimize the oppression and subordination of marginalized groups. It is palpable in the neo-colonial advances and the shadowy effects of globalization that feeds on the powerlessness of the masses. It is manifested in the use of military, economic and technological might by the superpowers on the less developed nations, and in the all-pervasive violence that has become a part of the individual and collective lives of people. More than ever, it is evident today in the brutal rape of the earth and its resources.

The Church is also not free from the abusive exercise of power as apparent in the unrelenting clericalism and the sex scandals that have tainted its image in the recent years. The marginalization of women and their exclusion from the leadership and policy-making bodies, give expression to the gendered dimensions of power equations in the Church. Religious demands made through dogmatic fundamentalist proclamations run the risk of legitimizing the inequalities built into religious hierarchies and gender discrimination, since they claim the authority of God to justify the existing practices.

All the same, power is also understood and exercised in a constructive manner. It is the ability to act, and to influence or enable the behavior of others with or without their resistance. It is God's gift to humankind, and its ubiquitous quality stands as a constant sign of God's challenge to us, to use it to transform the face of the Earth (Ps 104:30). Everyone has power including the marginalized. When they learn to resist domination and assert their rights, they are appealing to the liberative effects of power.:

Thanks to the growing feminist consciousness, women are also learning to exercise power in a liberative model. There is a greater acknowledgement by women of their subjugated status and their vulnerability to the abuse of power, in society and in the Church. Women are refusing to remain victims of oppressive structures and relationships, and are asserting their economic agency, political space and above all, their voice.

The nine articles in this volume were written for the 6th conference of Ecclesia of Women in Asia held in Bangalore in 2013. . The diverse ways in which power was construed and re-imagined reject the idea that a universal women's experience of power is that of victimization and powerlessness. On the contrary, the articles celebrate the many ways women (and men) harness power despite constraints and tremendous odds. Theologically, questions like, "How would a newer and clearer theology on power enhance people's lives? What deeper theological examination or pastoral action or strategizing can each one personally undertake in relation to power?" were offered, either explicitly or implicitly.

Whether power is harnessed individually or collectively, the goal is genuine emancipation from the forces that undermine women's full potential. Empowered women, in solidarity with other groups, can defeat systemic violence, which is manifested in sexism, fundamentalism, racism, ethnocentrism, and trans-phobia, once and for.all.

Kids and Technology - Nature vs Nurture?

How to keep screen time in check for kids' health and development

Bottom of Form

Edited by Hearts & Minds Media 2017

It seems these days that kids are operating electronic devices such as smartphones practically moments after being born. Just take a look around any local playgroup or playground: You'll be likely to see kids as young as 2 or even younger clutching mom or dad's phone to play games or view videos. When it comes to technology, kids are not only starting to use it at a younger age but are using it in more varied situations, both at home and at school.

Children and the Media

The media machine is changing daily utilising new technologies to stimulate, surprise and saturate not only older but the next generation on new methods of living and experiencing life. It is a force to be reckoned with, with the ability to influence actions and behaviour at least through modelling behaviour leading to desensitisation towards sex, violence with the verbal content of this new medium. The BBFC for example is the UK watchdog towards inappropriate content in film and TV which refrains from following its own standards of content rarely cutting or removing a film from the UK market (10 films only banned in the past 10 years; BBFC, 2017)

From the poem by Edmund Blake, Muggeridge quotes:

This Life's dim windows of the soul

Distorts the Heavens from Pole to Pole,

And leads you to believe a lie,

When you see with, not through, the eye.1

Television is the special target of Muggeridge's criticism. He contends that the tube induces us to "see with the eyes" to secular fantasy and dissuades us from "seeing through the eyes" to spiritual reality.

Thus did Western Man decide to abolish himself, creating his own boredom out of his own affluence, his own vulnerability out of his own strength, his own impotence out of his own erotomania, himself blowing the trumpet that brought the walls of his own city tumbling down, and having convinced himself that he was too numerous, labored with pill and scalpel and syringe to make himself fewer. Until at last, having educated himself into imbecility, and polluted and drugged himself into stupefaction, he keeled over--a weary, battered old brontosaurus--and became extinct."

- Malcolm Muggeridge, Vintage Muggeridge: Religion and Society

"If God is dead, somebody is going to have to take his place. It will be megalomania or erotomania, the drive for power or the drive for pleasure, the clenched fist or the phallus, Hitler or Hugh Hefner."

- Malcolm Muggeridge
