Are you ready to go to another level? Or are you stuck on last year's failures, and this year's disappointments? When bad things happen do you take charge or wallow in self-pity? What are you doing about the situations that look impossible in your life? Joanne Benefield-McKay uses what she thought was an impossible situation to teach others how to walk in victory. In her book, Unlimited Power, Achieving The Impossible, McKay's "snap out of it, get a grip" style empowers the reader to overcome fear, and to draw strength. McKay, through a twist of fate, turns a soul shattering situation into a victory. Unlimited Power, Achieving The Impossible is more than a book about an impossible situation but how to use the impossible to bring joy, comfort and encouragement to others. A unique practical approach to overcoming the impossibilities of your life. McKay's workbook format invites the reader, instead of just reading the book, to interact, take action to begin the journey.

Welcome to “Evolving from the Cocoon” A Memoir of Learning from my Past. In this book I offer accurate portions of my life that has assisted me in the transformation of becoming the best version of me possible. Growing up I was always that quiet-shy kid. I never truly felt comfortable asking questions because I wanted everyone to like me. To avoid conflict and confrontation, I learned to keep to myself. By doing so, I often found myself depressed because I couldn’t figure out why my life seemed to be so abnormal and unfulfilling. Growing older, that one-word question kept finding a way to repeat itself in my head over and over...WHY??? For years that question burned in my heart especially as I entered adulthood. Then it happened! The answer finally hit me! “Your pain may be someone else’s gain!” I thought to myself, “WOW!” The things that troubled me in the past are to be shared with others. My bad decisions and bloopers were indeed blessings. All the mishaps and not so good experiences in my life were to serve as inspiration and encouragement to people like me. I had to gain my voice so that eventually I could be a voice for others. No longer limited by the cocoon, I discovered I can fly high and gracefully like the butterfly.

Whether they are Americans, Brits, or a stubborn and suicidally moral Dutchman, Norman Rush's whites are not sure why they are in Botswana. Their uncertainty makes them do odd things. Driven half-mad by the barking of his neighbor's dogs, Carl dips timidly into native witchcraft—only to jump back out at the worst possible moment. Ione briskly pursues a career as a "seducer" ("A seductress was merely someone who was seductive and who might or might not be awarded a victory. But a seducer was a professional"), while her dentist husband fends off the generous advances of an African cook. Funny, sad, and deeply knowing, polished throughout to a diamond glitter, Whites is a magnificent collection of stories.

The philosophical problem of identity and the related problem of change go back to the ancient Greek philosophers and fascinated later figures including Leibniz, Locke, and Hume. Heraclitus argued that one could not swim in the same river twice because new waters were ever flowing in. When is a river not the same river? If one removes one plank at a time when is a ship no longer a ship? What is the basic nature of identity and persistence? In this book, André Gallois introduces and assesses the philosophical puzzles posed by things persisting through time. Beginning with essential historical background to the problem he explores the following key topics and debates: mereology and identity, including arguments from 'Leibniz's Law' the constitution view of identity the 'relative identity' argument concerning identity temporary identity four-dimensionalism, counterpart and multiple counterpart theory supervenience the problem of temporary intrinsics the necessity of identity Indeterminate identity presentism criteria of identity conventionalism about identity. Including chapter summaries, annotated further reading and a glossary, this book is essential reading for anyone seeking a clear and informative introduction to and assessment of the metaphysics of identity.

"Crime and gentrification represent hot button issues in racially-diverse neighborhoods. Drawing on three and a half years of ethnographic fieldwork, Us Versus Them provides a detailed analysis of community conflict in Rogers Park and Uptown, two Chicago neighborhoods. The book shows how competing views about neighborhood change divided residents into two political camps, which prioritized either the fight against crime or the fight against gentrification. This division frequently materialized as a type of racial conflict, because anti-gentrification activists and their allies charged that grassroots anti-crime initiatives were, in truth, barely covert racist practices that meant to foster racial displacement and marginalization. Chapter by chapter, the book traces these conflicts in different areas of community life. It examines the strategies of public safety work that residents used to fight crime and how their efforts contributed to gentrification; how anti-gentrification activists resisted criminalization and gentrification; how politicians sought to actively use or downplay community divisions in their electoral campaigns; and how residents of different racial and ethnic backgrounds positioned themselves in these battles"--
