The wisdom in this life-changing book has the power to replace fear with joy. Fear, the source of all the negative agreements we've made in life, can alienate us from the joy that is our birthright. When we are able to look at our lives and our worlds without fear or judgment, we realize that this dream we are dreaming - reality - can be whatever we want it to be.
Thinking Sensibly About Security in an Uncertain World

Many of us, especially since 9/11, have become personally concerned about issues of security, and this is no surprise. Security is near the top of government and corporate agendas around the globe. Security-related stories appear on the front page everyday. How well though, do any of us truly understand what achieving real security involves? In Beyond Fear, Bruce Schneier invites us to take a critical look at not just the threats to our security, but the ways in which we're encouraged to think about security by law enforcement agencies, businesses of all shapes and sizes, and our national governments and militaries. Schneier believes we all can and should be better security consumers, and that the trade-offs we make in the name of security - in terms of cash outlays, taxes, inconvenience, and diminished freedoms - should be part of an ongoing negotiation in our personal, professional, and civic lives, and the subject of an open and informed national discussion. With a well-deserved reputation for original and sometimes iconoclastic thought, Schneier has a lot to say that is provocative, counter-intuitive, and just plain good sense. He explains in detail, for example, why we need to design security systems that don't just work well, but fail well, and why secrecy on the part of government often undermines security. He also believes, for instance, that national ID cards are an exceptionally bad idea: technically unsound, and even destructive of security. And, contrary to a lot of current nay-sayers, he thinks online shopping is fundamentally safe, and that many of the new airline security measure (though by no means all) are actually quite effective. A skeptic of much that's promised by highly touted technologies like biometrics, Schneier is also a refreshingly positive, problem-solving force in the often self-dramatizing and fear-mongering world of security pundits. Schneier helps the reader to understand the issues at stake, and how to best come to one's own conclusions, including the vast infrastructure we already have in place, and the vaster systems--some useful, others useless or worse--that we're being asked to submit to and pay for. Bruce Schneier is the author of seven books, including Applied Cryptography (which Wired called "the one book the National Security Agency wanted never to be published") and Secrets and Lies (described in Fortune as "startlingly lively...¦[a] jewel box of little surprises you can actually use."). He is also Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Counterpane Internet Security, Inc., and publishes Crypto-Gram, one of the most widely read newsletters in the field of online security.

Twelve Spiritual Keys to Racial Healing
Author: Aeeshah Ababio Clottey,Kokomon Clottey
Pubpsher: H J Kramer
Addressing racism in a distinctively different way, this seminal work presents a refreshing new vision of the internal peace that is possible for each individual, and ultimately for our society as a whole.
On his three-mile walk to church with his large family every Sunday, fifteen-year-old J.D. Banks has plenty of time to ponder about life at a time when blacks have no civil rights in eastern Mississippi. Church is the center of everything, and J.D. strives to live by the moral rules of the Bible. At times, J.D. finds that following the teachings of his preacher and his God are not an easy task. As J.D. comes of age in this rural community, he faces decisions about drinking and women and his place in life. He sees death, and he sees discrimination. He wonders what it would take to make a good life in this county in Mississippi. He wonders how he will overcome his paralyzing fears in his daily encounters with the Jim Crow system in his hometown. J.D. thoroughly understands the danger of getting white people riled up. Providing a social commentary on the times, Beyond Fear depicts the struggles of the poor, black people in the south as they attempt to survive both poverty and discrimination.
To a certain degree, fear is essential to living. However, it is another story when it begins to control and rule a person’s life. Long-running fear, anxiety, and all manner of phobias may be traced to how healthy fear, as our cave-dwelling ancestors knew, it has become skewed in the context of modern living. So it is in the case of people who face all manner of nightmare when confronted with the idea of flying. In Flying Beyond Fear Workbook, Dr. Yvonne DeMoss dissects the roots of the fear of flying, and presents elaborate measures to counter them. Those who suffer chronically will appreciate the keen insight laid out in the book, to set them free at last to enjoy the sight of a plane’s cabin.
