Book Excerpt :

In her first contemporary novel since Room, bestselling author Emma Donoghue returns with a brilliant tale of love, loss and family. The life of a retired New York professor is thrown into chaos when he takes his great-nephew to the French Riviera in the hopes of uncovering his own mother’s wartime secrets. Noah is only days away from his first trip back to Nice since he was a child when he receives an unexpected request. A social worker is looking for a temporary home for Michael, his eleven-year-old great-nephew. Although he has never met the boy, Noah is convinced to take Michael with him to France. Suffering from jet lag and culture shock, the odd couple argue about everything from steak haché to screen time, and the trip shows every sign of being a disaster. But Michael’s skill with tech and his sharp eye help Noah unearth troubling details about their family’s past. Eventually they both come to understand that people of all eras run risks on behalf of their loved ones. In learning this they discover that they are more akin than they knew. Written with all the tenderness and psychological intensity that made Room a huge bestseller, Akin is a funny, heart-wrenching tale of an old man and a boy who unpick the threads of their painful stories and start to write a new one together.

Book Short Summary:

The book’s setting is a mid-continental city that was suffering a serious affliction with many homes without affection. It was a city with high domestic violence, parental negligence, and rising youth gang involvement. It was a picture that was far from perfect. With gangs, gin, and guns calling the shots, love got lost quickly, and lust and lies took over. Things began to spiral out of control with the hunters, the hunted, and the haunted prowling the city streets at will. Then something unimaginable happened. It is the Finest Wine miracle. Learn how to ignite an affectionate environment wherever you find yourself—at home, work, school, or even a boardroom. It is a revelation of how ordinary people could be used to do extraordinary things. “With this well-written and highly inspired and inspiring drama book that is just about to be shot into a movie, it is believed that many more people will be touched, homes healed, broken relationships restored, and many affected youths saved from their reckless ways of living.” —Evangelist Mike Bamiloye, internationally acclaimed Christian movie director, author, actor, teacher, and leader

Wide Awake is a child’s view on the tiring, yet precious process known in our house as the bedtime dance, inspired by our family’s routine. After five kids, we have finally learned to do most of this ‘dance’ prior to laying them down, and believe whole heartedly, the best we can do for our kids is point them to Jesus one more time before they drift off to sleep. My hope for this little book is that it will find its way into the bedtime routines of families all over the world!

Wealth Inequality, Asset Redistribution and Risk-Sharing Islamic Finance

  • Pdf File: wealth-inequality-asset-redistribution-and-risk-sharing-islamic-finance.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Wealth inequality has been not only rising at unsustainable pace but also dissociated from income inequality because of the fact that wealth is increasing without concomitant increase in savings and productive capital. Compelling evidence indicates that capital gains and other economic rents are mainly responsible for wealth inequality and its divergence from income inequality. The main argument of the book is that interest-based debt contracts are one of the drivers of wealth inequality through creating disproportional economic rents for the asset-rich. The book also introduces the idea of risk-sharing asset-based redistribution, which is a novel and viable policy proposal, as an effective redistribution tool to address the wealth inequality problem. Furthermore, a large-scale stock-flow consistent macroeconomic model, which is step by step constructed in the book, sheds light on the formation of wealth inequality in a debt-based economy and on the prospective benefits of implementing risk-sharing asset-based redistribution policy tools compared to traditional redistribution policy options. The research presented in this book is novel in many respects and first of its kind in the Islamic economics and finance literature.

  • Pdf File: ten-who-changed-the-world.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Ten Who Changed the World is seminary president Daniel Akin’s powerful tribute to the transformational work done by some truly inspiring Christian missionaries. With each profile, he journeys into the heart of that gospel servant’s mission-minded story and makes a compelling connection to a similar account from the Bible. David Brainerd (1718-1747; missionary to Native Americans) reminds Akin of Paul’s missionary life in 2 Timothy. The faithful ministry of George Leile (1750-1820; missionary to Jamaica) is aligned with Galatians 6. William Carey (1761-1834; missionary to India) lives out the Great Commission of Matthew 28. There are parallels between Adoniram Judson (1788-1850; missionary to Burma) and Romans 8. Lottie Moon (1840-1912; missionary to China) displays the power of a consecrated life described in Romans 12. The work of James Fraser (1886-1938; missionary to China) illustrates Revelation 5. Eric Liddell (1902-1945; missionary to China), his life documented in the film Chariots of Fire, illuminates Hebrews 12. Together, John (1907-1934) and Betty Stam (1906-1934; missionaries to China) embodied Psalm 67. William Wallace (1908-1951; missionary to China) was a shining example of Philippians 1. Jim Elliot (1927-1956; missionary to Ecuador) is a bold reminder of Psalm 96.

Book Short Summary:

Edited by David Platt, Daniel L. Akin, and Tony Merida, this new commentary series, projected to be 48 volumes, takes a Christ- centered approach to expositing each book of the Bible. Rather than a verse-by-verse approach, the authors have crafted chapters that explain and apply key passages in their assigned Bible books. Readers will learn to see Christ in all aspects of Scripture, and they will be encouraged by the devotional nature of each exposition. Projected contributors to the series include notable authors such as Russell D. Moore, Al Mohler, Matt Chandler, Francis Chan, Mark Dever, and others.

Book Short Summary:

Are You Going? The lives of many believers rarely escape the tight orbits that circle around their own schedules, their own interests. The familiar gravity of familiar places. But the trajectory of our faith should be one that’s continually cycling outward, fueled by a mission and message that God first brought within reach of us . . . so that we can now join with Him in taking it within reach of others. Authors Daniel L. Akin and Bruce Riley Ashford are calling today’s church members to lives of going—whether going around the world or to people right where they live—going out with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Between the two of them, Akin and Ashford have trained thousands of men and women in both the mandates and methods for going to every nation. Now they have created a resource for individuals and churches to use together in calling even more to go. Readers will: Learn the mission of God Understand the centrality of the church to going on mission with God Be challenged to go to the nations with the gospel of Jesus Christ Be challenged to go to their own neighborhoods with the gospel of Jesus Christ Learn to use their jobs as vehicles for the gospel Be challenged to commit to go anywhere on mission with God

Book Short Summary:

This two-volume work speaks to the entire scope of Professor Odebunmi’s research concerns in general pragmatics, medical and clinical pragmatics, literary discourse, critical discourse analysis, applied linguistics and language sociology. Its 52 chapters across both volumes (24 chapters in this volume and 28 chapters in Volume 2) written by established scholars such as Jacob Mey, Paul Hopper, Joyce Mathangwane, and Ming-Yu Tseng, in addition to the honoree, explore the dynamics of the interplay of spatial, temporal, agential and (non-)institutional factors that drive discourse/textual constructions, negotiations and interpretations and sometimes influence human cognition and actions. The volume will appeal to all academics, researchers and students who are interested in the interface of context and meaning in human communication.

At first it seems like a prank. How could Veronica Landonwood be the voice on the other end of the phone when she died three decades ago? But as Arkansas bookseller and amateur sleuth Claire Malloy is about to find out, her cousin "Ronnie" is very much alive—and in trouble. And could use Claire's help... Today, Ronnie is a renowned scientist living in Chicago. But when she was a teenager, she had a run-in with a famous Hollywood producer in Acapulco, Mexico. He attempted to sexually assault her—and she killed him. Having served time in prison, Ronnie finally put her this episode behind her...until now. Just when she has a real shot at the Nobel Prize, a ruthless blackmailer is threatening to expose the secrets of her past. Can Claire help to preserve Ronnie's reputation and keep her out of harm's way? That will depend on Claire's investigation—and what really happened on the night of the murder so many years ago...

Book Short Summary:

Abstract A - simplicial dynamical system is a simplicial map $g:K^* \rightarrow K$ where $K$ is a finite simplicial complex triangulating a compact polyhedron $X$ and $K^*$ is a proper subdivision of $K$, e.g. the barycentric or any further subdivision. The dynamics of the associated piecewise linear map $g: X X$ can be analyzed by using certain naturally related subshifts of finite type. Any continuous map on $X$ can be $C^0$ approximated by such systems. Other examples yield interesting subshift constructions.

It read, Welcome To Obscurity! Enjoy Your Stay! Ryder Autumns always heard that successes came with a price, but his new celebrity as an author, without his wife to guide him, was way too much for him to handle and he yearned for obscurity. He found it in the most unexpected of places. Or did he? Obscurity embraced Ryder from the moment he passed the sign on the side of the road that welcomed him. The problem with a town only big enough to be on a map is that it embraces just a little too tightly...and a little too quickly...especially to newcomers. He never gave any thought to that, until...

Book Short Summary:

This book is about life and how to attain or approximate our most important aspirations. It is designed to benefit everyone involved in any kind of venture, or relationship. The book is especially important to people who, on a daily basis, have to achieve important (personal or business) objectives by persuading others to see things their way, or at least to meet them half way for a constructive and beneficial outcome. This book is about life in all of its aspects. It attempts to reach and be helpful to each reader in most aspects of life, which the reader may need to improve, or re-evaluate. Part of the objective of this book is to make a person acting in an informed manner, become more comfortable with the choices that may from time to time be made. Understanding why those choices were made, and owning the benefits and being prepared to stoically deal with the attendant consequences that may flow from those choices. To be sure, this book is partly a concession to the sometimes unfathomable world in which we live. It is therefore no more than my own imperfect effort of attempting to make some sense out of how and why things are the way they are. How and why things have tended to work best for most people who have been deemed successful in various aspects of human endeavor, whether as a great parent, effective leader, a good advocate, an inspired creator of abundant wealth, an admired citizen, a trusted partner, or a great friend. Briefly, therefore, this book is divided into three broad chapters. Each chapter is further sub-divided into appropriate sections, for an easy and hopefully logical flow. Chapter one attempts to lay out the general foundation for the kinds of issues and challenges to be addressed. Chapter two addresses these issues in the context of various life circumstances and relationships we each find, or may from time to time, find ourselves. Chapter three, the last chapter, hopefully succeeds in tying it all together. The goal of the book is achieved. By the time one completes reading the book, each reader will be able to identify a personal road map for success. And this road map is applicable to whatever field of endeavor, or aspect of life, that each person may desire greater measure of success. As we each pursue our respective aspirations which could range from a desire to be loved and embraced; a quest to be perceived as worthy; an important recognition, respect, reward, or some other opportunity, it is very important to be very cognizant of the kinds of actions, attitude, or mind set, that are more likely than not, to aid us in attaining the ultimate goal we crave. I call the constructive application of these various life tenets, THE WINNING FORMULA.

Dynamics of Topologically Generic Homeomorphisms

  • Pdf File: dynamics-of-topologically-generic-homeomorphisms.pdf

Book Short Summary:

The goal of this work is to describe the dynamics of generic homeomorphisms of certain compact metric spaces $X$. Here ``generic'' is used in the topological sense -- a property of homeomorphisms on $X$ is generic if the set of homeomorphisms with the property contains a residual subset (in the sense of Baire category) of the space of all homeomorphisms on $X$. The spaces $X$ we consider are those with enough local homogeneity to allow certain localized perturbations of homeomorphisms; for example, any compact manifold is such a space. We show that the dynamics of a generic homeomorphism is quite complicated, with a number of distinct dynamical behaviors coexisting (some resemble subshifts of finite type, others, which we call `generalized adding machines', appear strictly periodic when viewed to any finite precision, but are not actually periodic). Such a homeomorphism has infinitely many, intricately nested attractors and repellors, and uncountably many distinct dynamically-connected components of the chain recurrent set. We single out several types of these ``chain components'', and show that each type occurs densely (in an appropriate sense) in the chain recurrent set. We also identify one type that occurs generically in the chain recurrent set. We also show that, at least for $X$ a manifold, the chain recurrent set of a generic homeomorphism is a Cantor set, so its complement is open and dense. Somewhat surprisingly, there is a residual subset of $X$ consisting of points whose limit sets are chain components of a type other than the type of chain components that are residual in the space of all chain components. In fact, for each generic homeomorphism on $X$ there is a residual subset of points of $X$ satisfying a stability condition stronger than Lyapunov stability.

Book Short Summary:

This report on the broadcast media in Nigeria finds that liberalisation efforts in the broadcasting sector have only been partially achieved. More than a decade after military rule, the nation still has not managed to enact media legislation that is in line with continental standards, particularly the Declaration on Freedom of Expression in Africa. The report, part of an 11-country survey of broadcast media in Africa, strongly recommends the transformation of the two state broadcasters into a genuine public broadcaster as an independent legal entity with editorial independence and strong safeguards against any interference from the federal government, state governments and other interests. The report was written by Mr. Akin Akingbulu Executive Director, Institute for Media and Society, IMS, Nigeria.

Book Short Summary:

As a network administrator, auditor or architect, you know the importance of securing your network and finding security solutions you can implement quickly. This succinct book departs from other security literature by focusing exclusively on ways to secure Cisco routers, rather than the entire network. The rational is simple: If the router protecting a network is exposed to hackers, then so is the network behind it. Hardening Cisco Routers is a reference for protecting the protectors. Included are the following topics: The importance of router security and where routers fit into an overall security plan Different router configurations for various versions of Cisco?s IOS Standard ways to access a Cisco router and the security implications of each Password and privilege levels in Cisco routers Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) control Router warning banner use (as recommended by the FBI) Unnecessary protocols and services commonly run on Cisco routers SNMP security Anti-spoofing Protocol security for RIP, OSPF, EIGRP, NTP, and BGP Logging violations Incident response Physical security Written by Thomas Akin, an experienced Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and Certified Cisco Academic Instructor (CCAI), the book is well organized, emphasizing practicality and a hands-on approach. At the end of each chapter, Akin includes a Checklist that summarizes the hardening techniques discussed in the chapter. The Checklists help you double-check the configurations you have been instructed to make, and serve as quick references for future security procedures.Concise and to the point, Hardening Cisco Routers supplies you with all the tools necessary to turn a potential vulnerability into a strength. In an area that is otherwise poorly documented, this is the one book that will help you make your Cisco routers rock solid.

Book Short Summary:

The Kurdish question is one of the most complicated and protracted conflicts of the Middle East and will never be resolved unless it is finally defined. The majority of the Kurdish people live in Turkey, which gives the country a unique position in the larger Kurdish conundrum. Society in Turkey is deeply divided over the definition and even existence of the Kurdish question, and this uncertainty has long manifested itself in its complete denial, or in accusations of political rivals of ‘separatism’ and even ‘treason’. Turkey’s Kurdish Question explores how these denial and acknowledgement dynamics often reveal pre-existing political ideology and agenda priorities, themselves becoming political actions. While the very term "Kurdish question" is discussed in the academic literature as a given, a new and systemic study is required to deconstruct and analyze the constitutive parts of this discursive construct. This book provides the first comprehensive study and analysis of the discursive constructions and perceptions of what is broadly defined as the "Kurdish question" in Turkish, European and American political cultures. Furthermore, its new methodological approach to the study of discourse and politics of secessionist conflicts can be applied to many similar intra-state conflict cases. Turkey’s Kurdish Question would suit students and scholars of Middle East studies, Conflict studies and Comparative Politics, as well as Turkish or Kurdish studies. H. Akın Ünver is an assistant professor of international relations at Kadir Has University. This book is based on his dissertation ‘Defining Turkey’s Kurdish Question‘, which has won the Middle East Studies Association (MESA) 2010 Malcolm H. Kerr award for the best dissertation in the field of social sciences.

Book Short Summary:

In Fatih Akın's Cinema and the New Sound of Europe, Berna Gueneli explores the transnational works of acclaimed Turkish-German filmmaker and auteur Fatih Akın. The first minority director in Germany to receive numerous national and international awards, Akın makes films that are informed by Europe's past, provide cinematic imaginations about its present and future, and engage with public discourses on minorities and migration in Europe through his treatment and representation of a diverse, multiethnic, and multilingual European citizenry. Through detailed analyses of some of Akın's key works— In July, Head-On, and The Edge of Heaven, among others—Gueneli identifies Akın's unique stylistic use of multivalent sonic and visual components and multinational characters. She argues that the soundscapes of Akın's films—including music and multiple languages, dialects, and accents—create an "aesthetic of heterogeneity" that envisions an expanded and integrated Europe and highlights the political nature of Akın's decisions regarding casting, settings, and audio. At a time when belonging and identity in Europe is complicated by questions of race, ethnicity, religion, and citizenship, Gueneli demonstrates how Akın's aesthetics intersect with politics to reshape notions of Europe, European cinema, and cinematic history.
