"Foreword by Nido Qubein, Chairman, Great Harvest Bread Company, Founder, National Speakers Association Foundation Do you seek greater success? In some way or another, we all do. You may crave achievement in your career or business, or wish for financial freedom. Perhaps you long for stronger personal and family relationships, or yearn for a deeper sense of spirituality. There may be as many definitions of success as there are people who seek it, but there are certain core human attributes that assist us on our quest for happiness. Personal Brilliance is written to help you maximize your own Awareness, Curiosity, Focus, and Initiative, those powerful traits we all have but too often ignore. If you’re like most people, you rely on the four traits primarily in response to specific situations or challenges. You’re overwhelmed at work, for example, so you Focus and apply extra Initiative to get the job done. Or you’re in an unfamiliar setting, so your Awareness and Curiosity are naturally heightened. But to turn these attributes into powerful success tools, you’ve got to use them all the time -- so that they become “habits of the mind.” How do you do it? Author Jim Canterucci offers easy, practical, and fun exercises to incorporate into daily routines. Some require you to ask questions of yourself, or make simple alterations to gain a new perspective. Others will have you pretending or playing a role, while still others let you develop new interests and knowledge. By constantly challenging your mind to explore new subjects and new perspectives, you intensify and strengthen the four traits every day. Just as physical exercise gives you more energy, solid habits of the mind fortify you mentally and emotionally, leaving you better equipped to achieve whatever you desire. Personal Brilliance gives you dozens of these proven techniques to help you break through the barriers that stop you from being and achieving your personal best in all areas of your life. The book also recounts inspiring stories of people who have dramatically improved their lives and made significant differences in their communities, families, and businesses. You’ve already got much of what it takes to succeed on your terms, whatever those terms may be. Personal Brilliance will help you build on your natural characteristics to become the person and achieve the goals you’ve always envisioned."

Gary Genosko's timely study traces McLuhan's influence on the work of Jean Baudrillard, arguing that McLuhan's ideas have been far more influential than hitherto imagined in the development of postmodern theory.

He argues that it is through Baudrillard's influence that McLuhanism has had its greatest impact on contemporary cultural thought and practice.

Radical Comedy in Early Modern England

Contexts, Cultures, Performances

Author: Professor Rick Bowers

Publisher: Ashgate Publishing, Ltd.

ISBN: 1409475018

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 132

View: 3747

Drawing on the generic and mythic strength of comedy and the theories of Bakhtin, Bergson, and Hobbes, this book identifies the radical nature of early modern English comedy. The satirical comedic actions that shape the "Shepherds' Play," Thomas Dekker's pamphlets, and the comic dramas of Marston, Middleton, and Jonson are all driven, Bowers points out, by an ability to criticize authority, assert plebeian culture, and insist on the complexity and innovation of human discourse. The texts examined (including The Jew of Malta, Metamorphosis of Ajax, Antonio and Mellida, Bartholomew Fair, The Alchemist, and A Chaste Maid in Cheapside) simultaneously create and employ standard comedic elements. Farce, absurdity, excess, over-the-top characters, unremitting irony, black humor, toilet humor, and tricksters of all types - such features and more combine to satirize medical, religious, and political authority and to implement necessary social change. Written with a narrative ease, Radical Comedy in Early Modern England shows how comic interventions both describe and reconfigure prevalent authority in its own time while arguing that, through early modern comedy, one can observe the changes in social behavior and understandings characteristic of the Renaissance.

In The Cultural Logic of Computation, David Golumbia, who worked as a software designer for more than ten years, argues that computers are cultural "all the way down" - that there is no part of the apparent technological transformation that is not shaped by historical and cultural processes, or that escapes existing cultural politics. The Cultural Logic of Computation provides a needed corrective to the uncritical enthusiasm for computers common today in many parts of our culture.

Is it possible for a group of the world’s most respected environmental scientists to truly practice what they preach? Can their expertise in climate change help them in transforming an old house and its nine acres into their new office building and campus—a building that is as energy efficient as possible, uses local materials, and generates all of the energy it consumes? In this candid, charming, and informative book, the director of the renowned Woods Hole Research Center tells a story that will interest anyone who has ever thought about doing a “green” rehab, has tried to build green, or just wonders what’s actually possible. The Woods Hole Research Center is an international leader in identifying the causes and consequences of environmental change. When the WHRC needed a new administration building, its scientists and staff decided that the building should utilize “state-of-the-shelf” green building techniques and materials. However, the new office had to conform with the laws and building codes of the time, and with materials that were then available—no matter how frustrating these requirements were to the resident scientists and contractors. The author, George M. Woodwell, founder of the WHRC, was intimately involved in the design and construction of the Gilman Ordway Campus, which was completed in 2003. He details the challenges they faced, but also puts the building in a larger context, not only within the work of the Center and the tradition of Woods Hole, but in the global need to minimize our carbon emissions and overall environmental impact. Building a world that works requires rethinking how we design, reuse, and live in the built environment while preserving the functional integrity of the landscape.

Phrases such as `corporate culture', `market culture' and the `knowledge economy', have now become familiar clarion calls in the world of work. They are calls that have echoed through organizations and markets. Clearly something is happening to the ways markets and organizations are being represented and intervened in and this signals a need to reassess their very constitution. In particular, the once clean divide that placed the economy, dealt with mainly by economists, on one side, and culture, addressed chiefly by those in anthropology, sociology and the other `cultural sciences', on the other, can no longer hold. This volume presents the work of an international group of academics from a range of disciplines including sociology, media and cultural studies, social anthropology and geography, all of whom are involved not only in thinking `culture' into the economy but thinking culture and economy together.
