    Help - The Original Human Dilemma

    In a book the San Francisco Chronicle called "unclassifiably wise" and a "masterpiece," noted Harper's essayist Garret Keizer explores the paradox that we are human only by helping others– and all too human when we try to help. It is the primal cry, the first word in a want ad, the last word on the tool bar of a computer screen. A song by the Beatles, a prayer to the gods, the reason Uncle Sam is pointing at you. What we get by with a little of, what we could use a bit more of, what we were only trying to do when we were so grievously misunderstood. What we'll be perfectly fine without, thank you very much. It makes us human. It can make us suffer. It can make us insufferable. It can make all the difference in the world. It can fall short.  "Help is like the swinging door of human experience: 'I can help!' we exclaim and go toddling into the sunshine; 'I was no help at all,' we mutter and go shuffling to our graves. I'm betting that the story can be happier than that . . . but I have a clearer idea now than I once did of what I'm betting against." In his new book, Help, Garret Keizer raises the questions we ask everyday and in every relationship that matters to us. What does it mean to help? When does our help amount to hindrance? When are we getting less help–or more–than we actually want? When are we kidding ourselves in the name of helping (or of refusing to "enable") someone else? Drawing from history, literature, firsthand interviews, and personal anecdotes, Help invites us to ponder what is at stake whenever one human being tries to assist another. From the biblical Good Samaritan to present day humanitarians, from heroic sacrifices in times of political oppression to nagging dilemmas in times of ordinary stress, Garret Keizer takes us on a journey that is at once far–ranging and never far from where we live. He reminds us that in our perpetual need for help, and in our frequent perplexities over how and when to give it, we are not alone.

  • Taking Privacy Seriously - How to Create the Rights We Need While We Still Have Something to Protect - cover

    Taking Privacy Seriously - How...

    James B. Rule

    A STEP-BY-STEP PROGRAM TO CREATE A MORE PRIVATE AND EGALITARIAN DIGITAL WORLDTaking Privacy Seriously offers both a hard-hitting assessment of the origins of today’s privacy-eroding practices and a robust road map for creating individual authority over our personal data. James B. Rule proposes eleven key reforms in the control and use of personal information—including far-reaching new rights for individuals and meaningful responsibilities for data-keeping organizations—all aimed at redressing the balance of power between ordinary citizens and data hungry corporate and government institutions.What a privacy-deprived America needs most is not less technology, Rule argues, but profound political realignment. His proposed reforms include the creation of websites that publicly document what organizations are holding what forms of personal data; the establishment of a right for citizens to withdraw from personal data systems not required by law; and the institution of a universal property right over commercial exploitation of data on oneself—so that no organization could profit from the use or sale of such data without permission. Succinct and compelling, Taking Privacy Seriously explains how we can refashion information technologies so that they serve human needs, not the other way around.“This book is direct, impatient (in the best way possible), and urgent. It doesn’t waste time summarizing all the things we already know about privacy in theUnited States, but instead asks, What is to be done? We need a book like this.”—David Murakami Wood, Professor, Department of Criminology, University of Ottawa

    World's Greatest Airshows

    Air shows are one of the world's most popular, non - sporting outdoor attractions. Although the story of flight is over 100 years old, aircraft still hold a fascination for young and old, men and women from all backgrounds. Indeed, the first air show was held when aircraft and aviation was still in its infancy in the 1900s. Since then aviation has progressed in the full glare of the public gaze.
    Some air shows are held as a business venture or as a trade event where aircraft, avionics and other services are promoted to potential customers. Many air shows are held in support of local, national or military charities. Military air services often organise air shows at military airfields as a public relations exercise to thank the local community, promote military careers and raise the profile of the military.
    In this book, we cover the different types of air show and more importantly, the displays that make air shows memorable. For some it is the noise and speed of the latest military jets, for others, extraordinary aerobatics that seem to defy the laws of physics. There are also the displays of classic aircraft and warbirds as well as dramatic reconstructions of how aircraft are deployed.
    What is clear is how far aviation has come but questions persist in how much farther it can go?

    It has become clear that reductionist models of health care are unsustainable in both economic and humanistic terms. There is a pressing need, therefore, articulated increasingly by patients themselves, to move away from impersonal, fragmented and decontextualized systems of healthcare towards personalized, integrated and contextualised models of clinical practice within a humanistic framework of care that recognizes the importance of applying science in a manner which respects the patient as a whole person and takes full account of his values, preferences, aspirations stories, cultural context, fears, worries and hopes and which thus recognizes and responds to his emotional, social and spiritual necessities in addition to his physical needs. 
    The Educational Program for Person-centered Care aims to achieve this. It is divided into three discrete but interrelated sections. The first section of four papers includes the conceptualization and measurement in person centered medicine and embraces the relevance of the social determinants of health and people centered public health. The second group of articles moves on to the practical aspects of patient-physician communication and the importance of a comprehensive diagnosis. The third section emphasizes the importance of shared decision making with key examples and inter-professional collaboration. The program is a living document and will be revised with the help of those who study and apply a person-centered approach to their own practice.

They believe in investing in themselves and in supporting their values with their pocketbooks. From home security systems to health care, technology to travel, their spending choices are affecting the products that are available to us all.In the bestselling tradition of Bobos in Paradise and The Millionaire Next Door, The Middle-Class Millionaire is a captivating narrative-part sociology, part aspirational journey into the lives, attitudes, and values of the middle-class millionaires. Based on extensive surveys and research into more than 3,600 middle-class millionaire households around the United States, this book will reshape our understanding of what it takes to be successful-and how all of us can achieve similar success.
