The Theory of Conscious Harmony

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-theory-of-conscious-har...
Collin was a student of P.D. Ouspensky and was with him from 1936 until Ouspensky's death in October of 1947. The biographical note explains that the experiences Collin went through at the time of Ouspensky death "Profoundly affected his whole being." Collin gained a perception of what and where his work was to be. For a period he remained in London and began writing "The Theory of Celestial Influence." In June of 1948 he went to New York, en-route to Mexico-the place where he felt he was to begin his work. By 1949 he had moved to the outskirts of Mexico City and began translating of Mr. Ouspensky's books into Spanish. In the book, Collin challenges the reader to penetrate one's inner world by working to achieve unity and harmony, with the ultimate aim of escaping time. Collin writes, "In all experiments and efforts and disappointments, we must never forget the idea of self-remembering. No matter whether one is scientifically or mystically inclined, or whether one finds oneself mired in one's old life or in the middle of quite new experiences, this provides one's compass. This will show the direction in which to go and prevent one from ever becoming lost." The book was compiled by his wife, Janet Collin, following Collin's sudden death in May, 1956. He had climbed 98 steps up a church tower and suffered a heart attack, hit his head on the tower and fell to his death in the town square in Cuzco, Peru while visiting work groups he had helped establish in South America. Luckily, Collin had kept copies of his letters he had written over the years to people all over the world."Conscious Harmony" is an emotional vignette drawing on key points related to the work in answer to individual's queries and notes to him from 1944 to 1956. Janet Collin compiled these and edited notes to create 35 different selections of major work ideas. Of particular note is the quality of positiveness that marks his writing throughout. "There is so much to do in preparation for the future, so ma

640 Acres and Dirt Poor

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/640-acres-and-dirt-poor...
I, Janet Godwin Meyer, grew up on a dirt road in Georgia in the 1950s. My grandparents lived just across the state line in Alabama. Until I was eight years old, I had no idea that our black neighbors (the Collins family) were constantly reminded that they were second-class citizens. My parents accepted the Collins family as true friends who could be relied on to help and love their neighbors. My daddy was strong-willed and independent in his constant support of all our black friends. Shut Godwin helped many whites and blacks, and his reputation as a force to be reckoned with actually made the Ku Klux Klan back away from any sort of witch hunts. And many times over the years, he redirected the evildoers that he called the KKK cowards dressed up in white ghost costumes. When I was ten years old, my mother drove her children across the country so that we could spend the summer in Magdalena, New Mexico. That was the closest we could get to my daddy's sawmill. For fifty cents an acre paid to the federal government, my dad purchased the right to cut timber from the national forest.

Math on Trial

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/math-on-trial-1...
In the wrong hands, math can be deadly. Even the simplest numbers can become powerful forces when manipulated by journalists, politicians or other public figures, but in the case of the law your liberty-and your life-can depend on the right calculation. Math on Trial tells the story of ten trials in which mathematical arguments were used-and disastrously misused-as evidence. Despite years of math classes, most people (and most jurors) fail to detect even simple mathematical sophistry, resulting in such horrors as a medical expert's faulty calculation of probabilities providing the key evidence for a British mother's conviction for the murder of her two babies. The conviction was later overturned, but three years in prison took its toll-Sally Clark died of acute alcohol intoxication in March of 2007. Mathematicians Leila Schneps and Coralie Colmez use a wide range of examples, from a mid-19th-century dispute over wills that became a signal case in the forensic use of mathematics, to the conviction and subsequent exoneration of Amanda Knox, to show how the improper application of mathematical concepts can mean the difference between walking free and life in prison. The cases discussed include:-The Case of Amanda Knox (How a judge's denial of a second DNA test may have destroyed a chance to reveal the truth about Meredith Kercher's murder)-The Case of Joe Sneed (How a fabricated probability framed a son for his parents' grisly killing)-The Case of Sally Clark (How multiplying non-independent probabilities landed an innocent mother in jail for the murder of her children)-The Case of Janet Collins (How unjustified estimates combined with a miscalculated probability convicted an innocent couple of violent robbery)A colorful narrative of mathematical abuse featuring such characters as Charles Ponzi, Alfred Dreyfus, Hetty Green, and Oliver Wendell Holmes, Math on Trial shows that legal expertise isn't everything when it comes to proving a man innocent.

Reconsidering a Century of Flight

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/reconsidering-a-century-of-...
On December 17, 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright soared into history during a twelve-second flight on a secluded North Carolina beach. Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the first flight, these essays chart the central role that aviation played in twentieth-century history and capture the spirit of innovation and adventure that has characterized the history of flight. The contributors, all leading aerospace historians, consider four broad themes relating to the development of flight technology: innovation and the technology of flight, civil aeronautics and government policy, aerial warfare, and aviation in the American imagination. Through their attention to the political, economic, military, and cultural history of flight, the authors establish that the Wrights' invention-and all that followed in both air and space-was one of the most significant technologies of the twentieth century, fundamentally reshaping our world. Supported by the First Flight Centennial CommissionThe contributors are Janet R. Daly Bednarek, Tami Davis Biddle, Roger E. Bilstein, Hans-Joachim Braun, David T.

Global Perspectives on Gender and Work

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/global-perspectives-on-gend...
Central to all our lives, work affects our status in the state, the family, and the economy. This comprehensive reader examines the myriad ways in which work-whether it is well-paid, unpaid, or underpaid-profoundly influences our roles in both the public and private spheres. Jacqueline Goodman has selected a key set of essays that examine influential arguments on such central themes as (1) the origins of the gendered division of labor; (2) historical trends and economic transformations that affect and are affected by women's position in market and non-market work; (3) the effects of occupational and job segregation by sex on status, pay, and promotion; (4) the ways in which formal and informal organizational culture shape and in turn are shaped by gender in professional and managerial positions; (5) class consciousness among wage-earning men and women; (6) the different forms of gender discrimination that women and men face in the workplace; (7) the problems working parents face and the ways in which different societies, subcultures, and genders cope; and (8) alternative approaches to improving the lives of working women and their families in the global economy. With its rich interdisciplinary perspective, this text is ideal for courses in sociology, political science, anthropology, and women's and gender studies.
