A life discussion in an European TV show created worldwide panic - for the first time it was officially announced that the earth has reached the 'Tipping Point', the point of no return in the destruction of the environment. Climate change with a non-reversible perspective. An Australian TV-station has invited nationally reknowned personalities to calm the situation by informing the population about the "facts" and "data" instead of spreading fear and innuendo. It is accomplished TV-Presenter Bettina Roland's job to get the most positive outlook into the future from her discussion. Get an intriguing look behind the scenes of this TV production that has no precedence, the tensions and blunt truth of a panel discussion recorded and not live streamed for a reason ... Is that the future - our future?

Download or read The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell Summary Analysis PDF, written by Elite Summaries and published by Elite Summaries. This book was released on with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Author Malcolm Gladwell explores the idea of ideas and how they catch fire in his novel, The Tipping Point. He contests that thoughts and ideas spread in much the same way illness spreads, usually to much better effect: a little exposure goes a long way. He presents the spread of ideas as a sort of epidemic, and perhaps his novel is proof of that. Since its release in 2002, The Tipping Point has become a national bestseller. This edition includes a new afterword by the author. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 10.0px 0.0px; text-align: justify; font: 11.0px 'Trebuchet MS'; color: #000000; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} How do ideas go from horribly unpopular to the latest trend so quickly? Malcolm Gladwell dives into the subjects of fashion, children's shows and even cigarettes in a search for the answer. It's a book that will stop and make you think about how these ideas apply within the context of daily life, marketing, and a whole host of other subjects. Gladwell leads us on a sociological expedition into the mentality and behavior that drives societal trends. Sociology students and readers just looking for a good book-and basically anyone in between- will find The Tipping Point highly enjoyable. It is peppered with anecdotes that carry along the scientific ideas quite nicely, making for a quick and interesting read. Gladwell's insight in The Tipping Point has been used in marketing and advertising strategies by many companies, but it's written in just such a way that keeps the content from even approaching dryness. If you enjoy science but hate the feeling of chewing through a research paper, The Tipping Point is absolutely the book for you.

Book The Day I Reached My Tipping Point

Download or read The Day I Reached My Tipping Point PDF, written by Daryl B Sutter and published by FriesenPress. This book was released on 2019-07-08 with total page 85 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The target audience is education. The age range spans from new teachers in their twenties to veteran teachers. Teachers are found in every geographical region of the world. What they don’t realize, is that through policies, procedures, technology upgrades, parental and administrative as well as government expectations, their psychological well-being is slowly being depleted. The erosion of their compassion and empathy over time leads to anxiety, stress, depression, and burnout which are the themes of this book This depletion can result in qualified, skilled individuals leaving the profession early; others, to seek different career opportunities, or stay in the system just “going with the flow”; potentially eroding their personal values, belief system and principles. The key outcomes from this book are three-fold: first, an understanding of what compassion fatigue (CF) or Occupational Stress Injury (OSI) is and how it can impact an educator. Second, that the causes are identifiable, and that steps can be taken to ward it off. And, finally, for the reader to understand that there is hope and recovery. The main objective of the book is to make educators aware of CF and OSI. CF and OSI in educators can be a slow gradual process where teachers may not even realize the effects until something uncharacteristic occurs because he/she has “just snapped”. Upon recognizing CF/OSI in their life and/or career, readers are encouraged to contact the author at the supplied email address ([email protected]) to share anonymous events, stories and/or occurrences of how, when and why CF/OSI impacted their professional and personal life. These would then be used to. supplement another book, “Tales from the trenches”. The book is a supplement of my counselling, therapist and educational consulting business; Sutter and Associates.

Book DATA MINING  Predicting Tipping Points

Download or read DATA MINING Predicting Tipping Points PDF, written by Dr. Philip Gordon, PhD and published by Lulu.com. This book was released on 2013-01-31 with total page 204 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Tipping Points as evidenced in global events are, in many ways, influenced by media. DATA MINING for predicting and analyzing world events. This just released, ground-breaking book: DATA MINING: PREDICTING TIPPING POINTS by Dr Philip Gordon, Ph.D, details three case studies which were selected on the basis of common Tipping Point Attributes: Each involved media contagiousness and stickiness during their development and, each arrived at a "dramatic moment in time," which could only be characterized by the phenomenon of Tipping Points. Three recent case studies explore the leading edge technologies of DATA MINING and the theory of TIPPING POINTS: The first case study, the 2008 Presidential Campaign of Barack Obama was chosen to examine a narrower scope and timeframe for the application of the analysis. In contrast to the second case study, the International Financial Crisis of 2007-2010, which involves a broader data study period to identify trends and more complex issues. The third study, Climate Change was included as consideration because the data mining research and analysis revealed critical relationships between Media Impact and Global Events. As the issue of Climate Change is still evolving, Dr Gordon provides a Data Mining and Tipping Point Theory methodology for analyzing and predicting our planets' most pressing Global Tipping Points. Review Comments: "The genius of the formulation of DATA MINING: PREDICTING TIPPING POINTS is that it takes explicit account of the role of social media and the internet at facilitating bifurcations and promoting dynamical instability. In effect, we have trimmed a few feet of tail off the kite. As a reader, I was informed and educated as to the factors which conspire to influence stability / instability in complex social systems. ...the book does a good job of making sense of past bifurcations and dynamical instabilities, namely political instability, our perception of global climate change, and international economic crises...my compliments on a truly insightful Media Tipping Points." -Prof. Dr. (med.)

Geissler, A.B., B.S., M.S., M.Phil., Ph.D. (Yale) M.A., M.Eng., M.S., Ph.D., M.S., M.D., M.Phil.(Cantab) "A truly fascinating book that (teaches) a whole new way of thinking about major events and how the media can influence them. - Being a political junkie I was heavily into the media coverage of the 2008 Obama election and the global financial meltdown both via TV and the blogosphere. I now find myself looking for the tipping points and stickiness factors as other key events unfold. Usually, I have trouble reading theoretical books but this one was an easy read and if you want supporting data then the references are there. This could become a solid reference for those in the media who truly want to understand what they are reporting. Highly recommended and I look forward to Dr. Gordon's ongoing analysis of (future) events." -Dr. Ralph Moorhouse, Ph.D. Political junkie, Expert: natural polymers for industries "The application of Data Mining and Tipping Point Theory to media and global events, particularly the financial crisis and climate change, is a fascinating one." -Dr. Serge Besanger, PhD Expert, International Monetary Fund ..".very interesting application (of the Tipping Point Theory)...potential opportunity for predicting other global events, i.e.: Egyptian crisis and perhaps, even terrorism activities." -Dr. Adam AJLANI, PhD Professor, Sciences Politic and Political Consultant, France TV1

Book excerpt: Jessie Bernard was one of the foremost early feminist sociologists and public intellectuals in women's studies. In The Jessie Bernard Reader, Michael S. Kimmel and Yasemin Besen have compiled her most intriguing and influential work on marriage, the family, sexuality and changing women's roles in the United States. Bernard's pioneering works bridged the gap between academic social science and public advocacy for gender equality. Her books were landmarks in demarcating the effects of the "separation of spheres." Among her most celebrated arguments was that couples experienced two different marriages, "his" and "hers"-and that his was better than hers. This volume will inspire a new generation of scholars, a generation that inherits the gains for which Bernard struggled her entire career.

Download or read Point of View 2 Book Bundle PDF, written by Brent Rathgeber and published by Dundurn. This book was released on 2014-09-25 with total page 408 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This special 2-book bundle contains two cutting edge pieces of political analysis. Irresponsible Government examines the current state of Canadian democracy in contrast to the founding principles of responsible government established by the Fathers of Confederation. The book examines the failure of modern elected representatives to perform their constitutionally mandated duty to hold the prime minister and his cabinet to account. It further examines the modern lack of separation between the executive and legislative branches of government and the disregard with which the executive views Parliament. The book seeks to shine light on the current power imbalances that have developed in Canadian government. There are few greater tragedies than a war waged by a society against itself. As Time Bomb shows, a catastrophic confrontation between Canada’s so-called "settler" and First Nations communities is not only feasible, it is, in theory, inevitable. Grievances, prejudice, and other factors all combine to make the likelihood of a First Nations uprising very real. This book describes how a nationwide insurgency could unfold, how the "usual" police and military reactions to First Nations protests would only worsen such a situation, and how, on the other hand, innovative policies might defuse the smouldering time bomb in our midst. The question all Canadians and First Nations must answer is this: Must we all suffer the disaster of a great national insurgency or will we act together to extinguish the growing danger in our midst? Includes Irresponsible Government Time Bomb

Download or read Geoengineering our Climate PDF, written by Jason J. Blackstock and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-09-04 with total page 290 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: If the detrimental impacts of human-induced climate change continue to mount, technologies for geoengineering our climate – i.e. deliberate modifying of the Earth's climate system at a large scale – are likely to receive ever greater attention from countries and societies worldwide. Geoengineering technologies could have profound ramifications for our societies, and yet agreeing on an international governance framework in which even serious research into these planetary-altering technologies can take place presents an immense international political challenge. In this important book, a diverse collection of internationally respected scientists, philosophers, legal scholars, policymakers, and civil society representatives examine and reflect upon the global geoengineering debate they have helped shape. Opening with essays examining the historic origins of contemporary geoengineering ideas, the book goes on to explore varying perspectives from across the first decade of this global discourse since 2006. These essays methodically cover: the practical and ethical dilemmas geoengineering poses; the evolving geoengineering research agenda; the challenges geoengineering technologies present to current international legal and political frameworks; and differing perceptions of geoengineering from around the world. The book concludes with a series of forward looking essays, some drawing lessons from precedents for governing other global issues, others proposing how geoengineering technologies might be governed if/as they begin to emerge from the lab into the real world. This book is an indispensable resource for scientists, activists, policymakers, and political figures aiming to engage in the emerging debate about geoengineering our climate.

This book was released on 2012-01-06 with total page 369 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Climate change has been identified as one of the greatest threats to humanity of all times. In addition to producing adverse environmental conditions such as rising sea level, drought, crop failure, vector-borne diseases, extreme events, degradation of water/air quality and heat waves, climate change is also considered a threat multiplier that leads to local and international conflicts and armed interventions. Urban areas may bear the brunt of climate change, as they are the centers of human habitation, anthropogenic stressors and environmental degradation, and the ensuing health impacts are of grave societal concern. The papers in this volume span a suite of climate change repercussions, paying particular attention to national security and human health aspects. It is an outcome of a NATO Advanced Research Workshop held during April 28-30, 2011 in Dubrovnik, Croatia, sponsored by the NATO Science for Peace and Security Program. The contributions cut across the elements of modeling, natural, political and social sciences, engineering, politics, military intervention, urban planning, industrial activities, epidemiology and healthcare.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Since the 1950s and the advance of urban renewal, local governments and urban policy have focused heavily on the central business district. However, such development has all but ignored the inner-city neighborhoods that continue to struggle in the shadows of high-rise America. This analysis of urban neighborhoods in the United States from 1960 to 1995 presents fifteen essays by scholars of urban planning and development. Together they show how urban neighborhoods can and must be preserved as economic, cultural, and political centers.
