3 Light Emerging - Barbara Ann Brennan
Auteur : Barbara Ann Brennan
Genre : Spirituality
Barbara Ann Brennan continues her ground-breaking exploration of the human energy field, or aura—the source of our experience of health or illness. Drawing on many new developments in her teaching and practice, she shows how we can be empowered as both patients and healers to understand and work with our most fundamental healing power: the light that emerges from the very center of our humanity.

4 What Is the Bible? - Rob Bell
Auteur : Rob Bell
Genre : Bible Studies
Instant New York Times Bestseller

Rob Bell, the beloved author of Love Wins and What We Talk About When We Talk About God, goes deep into the Bible to show how it is more revelatory, revolutionary, and relevant than we ever imagined—and offers a cogent argument for why we need to look at it in a fresh, new way.

In Love Wins, Rob Bell confronted the troubling questions that many people of faith were afraid to ask about heaven, hell, fate, and faith. Using the same inspired, inquisitive approach, he now turns to our most sacred book, the Bible. What Is the Bible? provides insights and answers that make clear why the Bible is so revered and what makes it truly inspiring and essential to our lives.

Rob takes us deep into actual passages to reveal the humanity behind the Scriptures. You cannot get to the holy without going through the human, Rob tells us. Wh

5 The emerging equity gap: Growth and stability in the new investor landscape - McKinsey Global Institute, Charles Roxburgh, Susan Lund, Richard Dobbs, James Manyika & Haihao Wu
Auteur : McKinsey Global Institute, Charles Roxburgh, Susan Lund, Richard Dobbs, James Manyika & Haihao Wu
Genre : Economics
Several forces are converging to reshape global capital markets in the coming decade and to reduce the role of listed equities. The most important of these is the rapid shift of wealth to emerging markets where private investors typically put less than 15 percent of their money into equities (compared to 30–40 percent in many mature economies). At the same time, demand for listed equities in developed economies is likely to fall due to aging, shifting pension regimes, growth of alternative investments, and new financial regulations.The result, according to a new McKinsey Global Institute report, The emerging equity gap: Growth and stability in the new investor landscape, will be a potential $12.3 trillion “equity gap” between the amount of equities that investors will demand and what companies will need to fund growth over the next decade. MGI projects that the share of glob

7 Addressing Emerging Threats and Targeted Attacks with IBM Security Network Protection - IBM Redbooks
Auteur : IBM Redbooks
Genre : Computers
In networks today, organizations are faced with hundreds of new web and non-web applications that are available to their users. Social media applications, peer-to-peer file transfer applications, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), web-based email, cloud data storage, and many others are all readily available. The ease and speed at which these new applications can be installed or simply accessed reduces the effectiveness of a perimeter-based security architecture and provides many new types of risks. These applications can be used by an attacker to obtain initial access into the organization and bypass any perimeter-based security.

This IBM® Redguide™ publication introduces the solution, which is a (IPS) that extends the capabilities of traditional protocol-based IPSes by providing application visibility and control. By using IBM X-Force® Research And Development, this so

8 Why the West Rules--for Now - Ian Morris
Auteur : Ian Morris
Genre : World
A New York Times Notable Book for 2011

Sometime around 1750, English entrepreneurs unleashed the astounding energies of steam and coal, and the world was forever changed. The emergence of factories, railroads, and gunboats propelled the West's rise to power in the nineteenth century, and the development of computers and nuclear weapons in the twentieth century secured its global supremacy. Now, at the beginning of the twenty-first century, many worry that the emerging economic power of China and India spells the end of the West as a superpower. In order to understand this possibility, we need to look back in time. Why has the West dominated the globe for the past two hundred years, and will its power last?

Describing the patterns of human history, the archaeologist and historian Ian Morris offers surprising new answers to both questions. It is not, he reveal

In Flashpoints, Friedman focuses on Europe—the world’s cultural and power nexus for the past five hundred years . . . until now. Analyzing the most unstable, unexpected, and fascinating borderlands of Eur

Auteur : Otto Scharmer & Katrin Kaufer
Genre : Management & Leadership
Our Time Is Now We have entered an age of disruption. Financial collapse, climate change, resource depletion, and a growing gap between rich and poor are but a few of the signs. Otto Scharmer and Katrin Kaufer ask, why do we collectively create results nobody wants? Meeting the challenges of this century requires updating our economic logic and operating system from an obsolete “ego-system” focused entirely on the well-being of oneself to an eco-system awareness that emphasizes the well-being of the whole. Filled with real-world examples, this thought-provoking guide presents proven practices for building a new economy that is more resilient, intentional, inclusive, and aware. “A watershed! An inspiring, practical weaving of the inner and outer dimensions of the systemic changes so many around the world are now working toward.” —Peter Senge, Senior Lecturer, MIT Sloan S

11 The Zimzum of Love - Rob Bell & Kristen Bell
Auteur : Rob Bell & Kristen Bell
Genre : Christianity
As he revolutionized traditional teaching on hell in the phenomenal New York Times bestseller Love Wins, Rob Bell now transforms how we understand and practice marriage in The Zimzum of Love, co-written with his wife, Kristen.

Despite the divorce statistics, people are still committing to each other, instinctively believing and hoping that theirs is a sacred union that will last forever. Yet when these couples encounter problems, they often lack the resources that keep them connected to this greater mystery surrounding marriage.

Rob and Kristen Bell introduce a startling new way of looking at marriage, The Zimzum of Love. Zimzum is a Hebrew term where God, in order to have a relationship with the world, contracts, creating space for the creation to exist. In marriage, zimzum is the dynamic energy field between two partners, in which each person contracts to allow th

Auteur : Marcus J. Borg
Genre : Christianity
World-renowned Jesus scholar Marcus J. Borg shows how we can live passionately as Christians in today's world by practicing the vital elements of Christian faith.

For the millions of people who have turned away from many traditional beliefs about God, Jesus, and the Bible, but still long for a relevant, nourishing faith, Borg shows why the Christian life can remain a transforming relationship with God. Emphasizing the critical role of daily practice in living the Christian life, he explores how prayer, worship, Sabbath, pilgrimage, and more can be experienced as authentically life-giving practices.

Borg reclaims terms and ideas once thought to be the sole province of evangelicals and fundamentalists: he shows that terms such as "born again" have real meaning for all Christians; that the "Kingdom of God" is not a bulwark against secularism but is a means of transf

20 What We Talk About When We Talk About God - Rob Bell
Auteur : Rob Bell
Genre : Christianity
How God is described today strikes many as mean, primitive, backward, illogical, tribal, and at odds with the frontiers of science. At the same time, many intuitively feel a sense of reverence and awe in the world. Can we find a new way to talk about God?

Pastor and New York Times bestselling author Rob Bell does here for God what he did for heaven and hell in Love Wins: he shows how traditional ideas have grown stale and dysfunctional and reveals a new path for how to return vitality and vibrancy to how we understand God. Bell reveals how we got stuck, why culture resists certain ways of talking about God, and how we can reconnect with the God who is with us, for us, and ahead of us, pulling us forward into a better future—and ready to help us live life to the fullest.

30 Winning in Emerging Markets - Tarun Khanna & Krishna G. Palepu
Auteur : Tarun Khanna & Krishna G. Palepu
Genre : Management & Leadership
The best way to select emerging markets to exploit is to evaluate their size or growth potential, right? Not according to Krishna Palepu and Tarun Khanna. In Winning in Emerging Markets, these leading scholars on the subject present a decidedly different framework for making this crucial choice.

The authors argue that the primary exploitable characteristic of emerging markets is the lack of institutions (credit-card systems, intellectual-property adjudication, data research firms) that facilitate efficient business operations. While such "institutional voids" present challenges, they also provide major opportunities-for multinationals and local contenders.

Palepu and Khanna provide a playbook for assessing emerging markets' potential and for crafting strategies for succeeding in those markets. They explain how to:

Government
32 A Government of Wolves - John W. Whitehead
Auteur : John W. Whitehead
Genre : Politics & Current Events
In A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, John W. Whitehead charts America's transition from a society governed by "we the people" to a police state governed by the strong arm of the law. In such an environment, the law becomes yet another tool to oppress the people. As a constitutional attorney of national prominence, and as president of The Rutherford Institute, an international civil liberties organization, Whitehead has been at the forefront of the fight for civil liberties in this country.

The recurring theme at the heart of A Government of Wolves is that the American people are in grave danger of losing their basic freedoms. The simple fact is that the Constitution - and in particular the Bill of Rights - is being undermined on virtually every front. Indeed, everything America was founded upon is in some way being challenged. The openness and freedo

Auteur : Pramod J. Sadalage & Martin Fowler
Genre : Computers
The need to handle increasingly larger data volumes is one factor driving the adoption of a new class of nonrelational “NoSQL” databases. Advocates of NoSQL databases claim they can be used to build systems that are more performant, scale better, and are easier to program.

NoSQL Distilled is a concise but thorough introduction to this rapidly emerging technology. Pramod J.

The authors provide a fast-paced guide to the concepts you need to know in order to evaluate whether NoSQL databases are right for your needs and, if so, which technologies you should explore further.

In this Little Book, Mark Mobius, an internationally-renowned expert on emerging market funds, explains the ins and outs of emerging market investment, providing practical guidance on picking industries and companies likely to win, and explaining why policies and regulations matter as much as balance sheets, how to recognize global contenders, techniques for managing risk, and how to get out at the right time.

The emerging markets are expected to be a key driver of future global economic growth, and with The Little Book

Pursued
35 Pursued - Jud Wilhite
Auteur : Jud Wilhite
Genre : Christianity
Christian faith isn't blind obedience to a set of rules and regulations; it is entering into a relationship with a God who pursues us-not to punish, but to love. As the leader of Central Christian Church in the self-proclaimed "Sin City, U.S.A.," Jud Wilhite has seen it all, and he knows that no matter how far someone has strayed from God, God always remains in passionate pursuit. Using the biblical prophet Hosea's marriage, commanded by God, to an unfaithful prostitute as a metaphor for God's unwavering love, PURSUED compellingly illustrates God's plan for every person-to be freed to become his or her own unique self through intimate togetherness with the living, loving God.

36 New Truth to the Fountain of Youth: The Emerging Reality of Anti-Aging Medicine - Theodore Goldsmith
Auteur : Theodore Goldsmith
Genre : Medical
For most of the past century, it was widely thought that delaying the human aging process was scientifically impossible. More recently, it has become increasingly clear that delaying aging is not only possible but a near-term reality. This book describes how theories of biological aging have evolved to support anti-aging medicine and summarizes the steadily increasing experimental evidence confirming that slowing the aging process is medically feasible. These developments are leading to fundamental changes in the way we think of age-related diseases like cancer and heart disease.

The author goes on to describe possible approaches to finding anti-aging agents and ways modern technology, including the Internet, could be applied to the search. Second edition 5/2014

In recent decades, the lives of people in their late teens and twenties have changed so dramatically that a new stage of life has developed.

42 How the Bible Actually Works - Peter Enns
Auteur : Peter Enns
Genre : Christianity
Controversial evangelical Bible scholar, popular blogger and podcast host of The Bible for Normal People, and author of The Bible Tells Me So and The Sin of Certainty explains that the Bible is not an instruction manual or rule book but a powerful learning tool that nurtures our spiritual growth by refusing to provide us with easy answers but instead forces us to acquire wisdom.

For many Christians, the Bible is a how-to manual filled with literal truths about belief that must be strictly followed. But the Bible is not static, Peter Enns argues. It does not hold easy answers to the perplexing questions and issues that confront us in our daily lives. Rather, the Bible is a dynamic instrument for study that not only offers an abundance of insights but provokes us to find our own answers to spiritual questions, cultivating God’s wisdom within us.

45 The Big Nine - Amy Webb
Auteur : Amy Webb
Genre : Industries & Professions
A call-to-arms about the broken nature of artificial intelligence, and the powerful corporations that are turning the human-machine relationship on its head.

We like to think that we are in control of the future of "artificial" intelligence. The reality, though, is that we -- the everyday people whose data powers AI -- aren't actually in control of anything. When, for example, we speak with Alexa, we contribute that data to a system we can't see and have no input into -- one largely free from regulation or oversight. The big nine corporations -- Amazon, Google, Facebook, Tencent, Baidu, Alibaba, Microsoft, IBM and Apple--are the new gods of AI and are short-changing our futures to reap immediate financial gain.

In this book, Amy Webb reveals the pervasive, invisible ways in which the foundations of AI -- the people working on the system, their motivations,

Auteur : Charlotte B. Beyer
Genre : Business & Personal Finance
Adapted from Charlotte Beyer’s 2017 book, Wealth Management Unwrapped, Revised and Expanded, comes a new term—relationship alpha (α), a competitive advantage for firms serving private clients and more predictive and longer lasting than traditional measures like alpha or beta.
