Summary

Socio-political views on housing have been brought to the fore in recent years by global economic crises, a notable rise of international migration and intensified trans-regional movement phenomena. Adopting this viewpoint, From Conflict to Inclusion in Housing maps the current terrain of political thinking, ethical conversations and community activism that complements the current discourse on new opportunities to access housing. Its carefully selected case studies cover many geographical contexts, including the UK, the US, Brazil, Australia, Asia and Europe. 
Importantly, the volume presents the views of stakeholders that are typically left unaccounted for in the process of housing development, and presents them with an interdisciplinary audience of sociologists, planners and architects in mind. Each chapter offers new interpretations of real-world problems, local community initiatives and successful housing projects, and together construct a critique on recent governmental and planning policies globally. Through these studies, the reader will encounter a narrative that encompasses issues of equality for housing, the biopolitics of dwelling and its associated activism, planning initiatives for social sustainability, and the cohabitation of the urban terrain.

    New York Times Bestseller 
    A collection of essays spanning politics, criticism, and feminism from one of the most-watched young cultural observers of her generation, Roxane Gay. 
    “Pink is my favorite color. I used to say my favorite color was black to be cool, but it is pink—all shades of pink. If I have an accessory, it is probably pink. I read Vogue, and I’m not doing it ironically, though it might seem that way. I once live-tweeted the September issue.” 
    In these funny and insightful essays, Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman (Sweet Valley High) of color (The Help) while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years (Girls, Django in Chains) and commenting on the state of feminism today (abortion, Chris Brown). The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly insightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society, but also one of our culture. 
    Bad Feminist is a sharp, funny, and spot-on look at the ways in which the culture we consume becomes who we are, and an inspiring call-to-arms of all the ways we still need to do better.

    Based on their Financial Times Weekend column, philosopher Julian Baggini and his psychotherapist partner Antonia Macaro offer intriguing answers to life's questions. Can infidelity be good for you? What does it mean to stay true to yourself? Must we fulfil our potential? Self-help with a distinctly cerebral edge, the shrink and the sage - aka Julian Baggini and Antonia Macaro - have been dispensing advice through their FT column since October 2010. Combining practical advice on personal dilemmas with meditations on the meaning of concepts like free will, spirituality and independence, this book - their first together - expands on these columns and adds much more. Through questions of existential unease, metaphysical trauma and - for instance - how much we should care about our appearance, intellectual agony uncle and aunt team Baggini and Macaro begin to piece together the answer that we'd all like to hear: what is the good life, and how we can live it?

    According to a study done by the National Alliance for Caregiving and the AARP, Caregiving in the U.S., almost 44 million adults are providing personal assistance for family members with disabilities or other care needs.
    In 2011, Baby Boomers began turning 65, and each day through 2029, 10,000 more will reach that milestone, which means an increased demand for services providing care for the elderly.
    Family caregivers spend an average of 20 hours per week caring for loved ones, and 13 percent are providing 40 hours of care a week or more; the value of uncompensated care provided by family members of friends is estimated at $450 billion annually.

    In 1888 Jack the Ripper made the headlines with a series of horrific murders that remain unsolved to this day. But most killers are not shadowy figures stalking the streets with a lust for blood. Many are ordinary citizens driven to the ultimate crime by circumstance, a fit of anger or a desire for revenge. Their crimes, overshadowed by the few, sensational cases, are ignored, forgotten or written off.
    
       This book examines all the known murders in London in 1888 to build a picture of society. Who were the victims? How did they live, and how did they die? Why did a husband batter his wife to death after she failed to get him a cup of tea? How many died under the wheels of a horse-driven cab? Just how dangerous was London in 1888?

    What is the cause of premature ejaculation? I am going to quickly talk about this before I go on to talk about how to tackle it.  There are different causes of premature ejaculations and I usually list about 6 of them but since this guide is all about getting results, I won’t waste time with that.  Instead, I will summarize all of them into the main cause of premature ejaculation which is “your inability to handle the pleasure you are experiencing during sex”.  That is what causes you to orgasm and ejaculate. And the orgasm comes from the stimulation or arousal that you experience when you are having sex. 
    The main problem that causes most men to experience premature ejaculation is allowing themselves to experience sexual stimulation at a very high intensity level. Talking about intensity levels, it is very important for you to be aware of the various levels of arousal that you go through when you are having sex. I usually use a scale of levels 1 – 10 to explain this where level 1 is the stage where you are not aroused and level 10 is that level when you just cannot control yourself anymore. That is when you ejaculate. In between levels 1-10 are other levels.
          
    The levels you have to know how to control most are levels 7-9 because this is where you function during sex. At these levels, you are enjoying sex at a high intensity but it can still be put under control. Not knowing how to control arousal at these levels is what causes premature ejaculation and how to control it is the main thing I am going to be showing you in this guide.
