How To Re Imagine The World from the Author: Anthony Weston. Who says that all possible social and political systems have already been invented? Or that work—or marriage, or environmentalism, or anything else—must be just what they are now? This book is a conceptual toolbox for imagining and initiating radical social change. Chapters offer specific, focused, and shareable techniques: Seeking a Whole Vision: Creating a pull and not just a push toward change Generative Thinking: Looking for “Seeds” and “Sparks”, Stretching and Twisting Ideas, and Going Two Steps Too Far Looking for Unexpected Openings: “Weeds” and “Wild Cards,” Inside Tracks, Leverage Points, and Hidden Possibilities Working at the Roots: Reconstructing the built world, cultural practices, even worldviews Building Momentum: Playing to our Strengths, Reclaiming the Language, “Allying Everywhere,” Doing it Now, Going for Broke Leap-frogging new kinds of cars and better mass transit in turn, why not a world in which “transportation” itself is unneeded? What about remaking New Orleans as a floating city, or putting only extreme surfers in the path of hurricanes? And why not dream of the stars? The question is not whether radical change is coming. It is already well underway. The only question is who will make it. Why not us? Anthony Weston is a professor of philosophy at Elon University in North Carolina, where he teaches ethics, environmental studies, and “Millennial Imagination.” He is the author of ten other books, including Back to Earth, Jobs for Philosophers, and Creativity for Critical Thinkers.

Slingshot from the Author: Gabor George Burt. DIVSlingshot explores the connection between systematic creativity and smart strategy./div "Slingshot is a great exploration of how to be great in the world!" —Jeff Hayzlett, former CMO of Eastman-Kodak, change agent and marketing authority, author of The Mirror Test "I am really drawn to Slingshot." —Sir Ken Robinson, leading global expert on education and creativity, best-selling author "An uplifting and universal blueprint for inventive thinking." —Chip Conley, founder and executive chairman of Joie de Vivre, second largest boutique hotel company in the U.S., acclaimed author "This book helps us unleash the vast potential of regained creativity and apply it in business, art, and other pursuits of our adult life." —Erno Rubik, inventor of the Rubik's Cube (the world's best-selling toy) "Slingshot is like looking at things through the other end of a telescope." —Dave Stewart, legendary musician and fearless innovator "Slingshot opens up possibilities - no preconceptions, no boundaries." —Jonathan Hornby, director of worldwide marketing, SAS (voted America's best company to work for) "Slingshot helps to understand how much you need to find new solutions." —Barbara Kuit, co-architect of the world's tallest tower "This is a rare book.

It's all here at your fingertips. Defy conventional wisdom and give reign to your imagination for success in your business and your life. Continuous innovation is both necessary and exhilarating, and we all possess the inner capacity for it. Our capacity has simply been buried and lays dormant within us. As children, our imagination knew no boundaries. We would grab a slingshot and be instantly transformed into a warrior, a spy, a huntress, or protector of treasure. But as we grew older, our intellectual comfort zone shifted from that of continuous exploration and inquisitiveness to that of conformity with accepted norms of perception. All is not lost, however. We just need the right framework to re-engage our youthful creativity: the Slingshot Framework. Find out why you need to infatuate your target audience and to provide them continuous lifestyle enrichment; how to become market-driving and to shape your offering for broadest relevance; and how to channel your reclaimed creativity into smart strategy. Launch yourself to new business and personal heights and have fun doing it. Re-enforcing the book's message, brilliant illustrations by children accompany the text from beginning to end, while original music and toy slingshots (accessible via ) provide readers with a truly multi-sensory experience.

Sleeping Beauties from the Author: Stephen King. Die Welt sieht sich einem faszinierenden Phänomen gegenüber. Sobald Frauen einschlafen, umhüllt sie am ganzen Körper ein spinnwebartiger Kokon. Wenn man sie weckt oder das unheimliche Gewebe entfernen will, werden sie zu barbarischen Bestien. Sind sie im Schlaf etwa an einem schöneren Ort? Die zurückgebliebenen Männer überlassen sich zunehmend ihren primitiven Instinkten. Eine Frau allerdings, die mysteriöse Evie, scheint gegenüber der Pandemie immun zu sein. Ist sie eine genetische Anomalie, die sich zu Versuchszwecken eignet? Oder ist sie ein Dämon, den man vernichten muss? Schauplatz und Brennpunkt ist ein kleines Städtchen in den Appalachen, wo ein Frauengefängnis den größten Arbeitgeber stellt.

Pedagogies And Curriculums To Re Imagine Public Education from the Author: Encarna Rodríguez. This book discusses current market-based educational discourses and how they have undermined the notion of “the public” in public education by allowing private visions of education to define the public democratic imagination. Against this discouraging background, this text embraces Freire’s understanding of hope as an ontological need and calls for finding new public grounds for our public imagination. It further articulates Freire’s mandate to unveil historically concrete practices to sustain democratic educational visions, no matter how difficult this task may be, by (1) presenting an indepth description of the pedagogies and curriculums of eleven schools across historical and geographical locations that have worked or are still working with disenfranchised communities and that have publicly hoped for a better future for their students, and by (2) reflecting on how the stories of these schools offer us new opportunities to rethink our own pedagogical commitment to public visions of education. To promote this reflection, this book offers the notion of publicly imagined public education as a conceptual tool to help understand the historical and discursive specificity of schools’ hopes and to (re)claim public schools as legitimate sites of public imagination.

The Fullness Of Time In A Flat World from the Author: Scott Waalkes. Best-selling author Thomas Friedman says that globalization has made the world flat and that we cannot stop the process. But while it is right to say that globalization tends to flatten our world, it is wrong to say that there are no alternatives to current patterns of economic, ecological, political, and cultural integration. This book argues that the Christian liturgical calendar provides a constructive alternative to the globalization of economics, ecologies, politics, and cultures. It does so by incorporating the church into the fullness of time in the gospel narrative, thereby helping us escape from the dead end of Friedman's flat world so that we can improvise healthier ways of being globally integrated.
