Since the 1927 release of Fritz Lang’s pioneer film Metropolis, science fiction cinema has largely been regarded a Western genre. In Simultaneous Worlds, Jennifer L. Feeley and Sarah Ann Wells showcase authors who challenge this notion by focusing on cinemas and cultures, from Cuba to North Korea, not traditionally associated with science fiction. This collection introduces films about a metal-eating monster who helps peasants overthrow an exploitative court, an inflatable sex doll who comes to life, a desert planet where matchsticks are more valuable than money, and more. Simultaneous Worlds is the first volume to bring a transnational, interdisciplinary lens to science fiction cinema. Encountering some of the best emerging and established voices in the field, readers will become immersed in discussions of well-known works such as the Ghost in the Shell franchise and Neill Blomkamp’s District 9 alongside lesser-known but equally fascinating works by African, Asian, European, and South American filmmakers. Divided into five parts that cover theoretical concerns such as new media economies, translation, the Global South, cyborgs, and socialist and postsocialist cinema, these essays trace cinema’s role in imagining global communities and power struggles. Considering both individual films and the broader networks of production, distribution, and exhibition, Simultaneous Worlds illustrates how film industries across the globe take part in visualizing the perils of globalization and technological modernity. Ultimately, this book opens new ways of thinking about world cinema and our understanding of the world at large.

The future is inevitably changing, just as it always has. While the world has moved its focus to globalization and technology, humanitys need for fulfillment, enjoyment, and security has been overlooked. The good news is that we can take responsibility for ensuring our lives are joyful. In a thought-provoking guidebook, Dee-anne Hayes splits the great atom of illusion into two worlds and encourages others to reinvent themselves by enlightening their purpose. Hayes teaches how to separate external influences from our mindset and reveal the willpower to pursue a new path; eliminate the self-doubt that keeps us from attaining our dreams and prosper; and expand our view of emerging opportunities by trusting our abilities and confidently making informed decisions. Others will also learn how to trust in the power of the subconscious, understand the mechanics of the mind, and quiet the mind to find awareness and answers to lifes greatest challenges. Simultaneous Minds shares a thought-provoking, in-depth exploration of how to break free of doubts and tap the power of the mind to attain enlightenment and create a joyful existence on Earth.

Publisher: Jessica Kingsley Publishers
Many child-care professionals work therapeutically with both parent and child and are increasingly focusing on the role of parents, yet there is very little information and guidance to help professionals in this work. Saralea E. Chazan's introduction to the simultaneous treatment of parent and child brings together theoretical background and suggestions for practice in an accessible and comprehensive format. Taking the reader through the theory of simultaneous treatment and the psychological processes underlying it she draws on three in-depth case studies of children she has worked with. She shows how effective treatment of parent and child by the same therapist either in combined or separate sessions can bring about significant therapeutic effects in a child's development and sense of self. This useful book will be a welcome resource for social workers, child psychiatrists, family therapists and other professionals working with children.

Society, Representations and Textuality: The Critical Interface brings together papers from various critical perspectives of Humanities and Social Sciences. The work (a) takes stock of the recent developments in critical theory and cultural studies; (b) studies the impact of these developments on the understanding of social reality and the human predicament in India; and (c) brings together scholars from North East India who are engaged in the project of understanding society and communities in their chosen intellectual practice. The book is the first-ever attempt to establish a dialogic encounter between critical practices in Humanities and Social sciences, hitherto considered to be autonomous in their own disciplinary boundaries. Further, the volume addresses issues of identity and autonomy of a multicultural India, particularly with reference to the interface between hegemonic cultures and politically and culturally persistent smaller communities. A significant feature of this book is its attempt to theorize and describe the myriad manifestations of the critical interface between society and literary or cultural productions.

Publisher: John Benjamins Publishing
Until now, Ghelly Chernov’s work on the theory of simultaneous interpretation (SI) was mostly accessible only to a Russian-speaking readership. Finally, Chernov’s major work, originally published in Russia in 1987 under the title Основы Синхронного Перевода (Introduction to Simultaneous Interpretation) and widely considered a classic in interpretation theory, is now available in English as well. Adopting a psycholinguistic approach to professional SI, Chernov defines it as a task performed in a single pass concurrently with the source language speech, under extreme perception and production conditions in which only a limited amount of information can be processed at any given time. Being both a researcher and a practitioner, Chernov drew from a rich interpreting corpus to create the first comprehensive model of simultaneous interpretation. His model draws on semantics, pragmatics, Russian Activity Theory and the SI communicative situation to formulate the principles of objective and subjective redundancy and identify probability prediction as the enabling mechanism of SI. Edited with notes and a critical foreword by two active SI researchers, Robin Setton and Adelina Hild, this book will be useful to practicing interpreters in providing a theoretical basis for appreciating the syntactic and other devices that can be used by both students and experienced interpreters in fine-tuning their performance in the booth.

Pakistani migrant families in Denmark find themselves in a specific ethno-national, post-9/11 environment where Muslim immigrants are subjected to processes of non-recognition, exclusion and securitization. This ethnographic study explores how, why, and at what costs notions of relatedness, identity, and belonging are being renegotiated within local families and transnational kinship networks. Each entry point concerns the destructive–productive constitution of family life, where neglected responsibilities, obligations, and trust lead not only to broken relationships, but also, and inevitably, to the innovative creation of new ones. By connecting the micro-politics of the migrant family with the macro-politics of the nation state and global conjunctures in general, the book argues that securitization and suspicion-launched in the name of "integration"-escalate internal community dynamics and processes of family upheaval in unpredicted ways.

Category: Political Science
This book tackles the question of why the United States is so resistant to radical change towards economic justice and peace. Taking full stock of the despair that launched the popular support for Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, Swanger historicizes the political paralysis of post-1974 United States that deepened already severe economic inequalities, asking how the terrain for social movements in the early twenty-first-century US differs from that of the 1960s. This terrain is marked by the entrenchment of neoliberalism, anti-intellectualism, and difficulties paradoxically posed by the ease of social media. Activists now must contend with a paralyzing “post-factual” moment. Alain Badiou’s thought informs this book on breaking through contemporary political paralysis.

The Second World War stands for the criminal madness of German Nazi government. Less known is their responsibility for the only climatic shift from warm to cold in an otherwise constantly warming world over the last 150 years. Not knowing the reason for the biggest climatic shift since industrialization, which started in winter 1939/40, rectifies to speak about failures of meteorology. Only four months into Second World War Northern Europe experienced the coldest winter in 100 years. The reason: plain physics! Naval war in Northern European seas released the summer heat too quickly. Polar air got free access to Europe. The same applies to the second and third war winter. Europe was back in the Little Ice Age. After Japan attacked Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7th, 1941 naval war became a global affair. In close conformity with naval war in European seas, and subsequently in the Pacific, a pronounced global cooling took place, which lasted until about the mid 1970s. Furthermore, a thorough research of strong warming in the Northern Hemisphere from winter 1918/19 to winter 1939/40 would have revealed a convincing link to naval war in Europe from 1914 to 1918. But climatology does not care! The connection between two naval wars and two climatic changes within 25 years has not yet been investigated and explained. If they had warned governments about the threat of climate change, as their successors currently do with the "greenhouse effect", naval activities in two World Wars may have been prevented, or at least been limited. Claims to understand climate should be regarded as a failure as long as meteorology is unable to explain the two most pronounced climatic shifts during the last century and the role two world wars had in this game. These two events would show that the oceans have a dominate role in the climate system, and man is able to change its direction by intensive activities in the marine environment. It took four months to generate the extreme regional winter 1939/40; and subsequently a few years to contribute to global cooling lasting for three. The book should alter the debate on climate change!

This book is dedicated for engineers and researchers who would like to increase the knowledge in area of mobile mapping systems. Therefore, the flow of the derived information is divided into subproblems corresponding to certain mobile mapping data and related observations’ equations. The proposed methodology is not fulfilling all SLAM aspects evident in the literature, but it is based on the experience within the context of the pragmatic and realistic applications. Thus, it can be supportive information for those who are familiar with SLAM and would like to have broader overview in the subject. The novelty is a complete and interdisciplinary methodology for large-scale mobile mapping applications. The contribution is a set of programming examples available as supportive complementary material for this book. All observation equations are implemented, and for each, the programming example is provided. The programming examples are simple C++ implementations that can be elaborated by students or engineers; therefore, the experience in coding is not mandatory. Moreover, since the implementation does not require many additional external programming libraries, it can be easily integrated with any mobile mapping framework. Finally, the purpose of this book is to collect all necessary observation equations and solvers to build computational system capable providing large-scale maps.
