Summary

Where are all the homes?
 
The affordable housing crisis today can be solved through innovative residential and urban design. Family models have evolved, society has reframed the role of cities, and ongoing urban realities demand opportunities to create housing for all, from first-time homeowners to retirees.
 
This book navigates the design process of new housing, like additional dwelling units, and explores ideas that can be implemented from the suburbs to cities. Through the history of urban design, zoning regulation, and with an emphasis on the human side of housing, ileana schinder, with her architecture background, highlights the role that the home plays in society today.

    Why do we need research to ensure that artificial intelligence remains safe and beneficial? What are the benefits and risks of artificial intelligence? 
     
    From Siri to self-driving cars, artificial intelligence (AI) is progressing rapidly. While science fiction often portrays AI as robots with humanlike characteristics, AI can encompass anything from Google’s search algorithms to IBM’s Watson to autonomous weapons.
     
    Artificial intelligence today is properly known as narrow AI, in that it is designed to perform a narrow task (e.g. only facial recognition, only Internet searches, or only driving a car). However, the long-term goal of many researchers is to create general AI (AGI or strong AI). While narrow AI may outperform humans at whatever its specific task is, like playing chess or solving equations, AGI would outperform humans at nearly every cognitive task.

    Do you have trouble with your digestion? Do you yearn for a life without stomach cramps and diarrhoea?This hypnosis can help you.Usually an irritable bowel syndrome is connected with psychological or emotional stress. That is not surprising, as there is a deep connection between our brain and our digestive tract and the latter contains about 100 million nerve cells. This is why we call it the "abdominal brain" and it can react to psychological and emotional stress in a very sensitive way.The world as we perceive it is based on the power of inner images that we store in our subconscious mind. When in a state of trance, which is essentially nothing else than focusing one's attention, these images can easily be recognised and effectively being changed into something positive through hypnosis. Hypnosis is a scientific therapy method that is successfully being used in medicine, psychotherapy and also for coaching.The products sold here do not replace a medical or psychological therapy. Please take your time when listening to the audio downloads and stop doing anything else that might distract you, e.g., don't use them while working or driving a car.ENJOY!Yours Dr. Nidal MoughrabiDeHypnotherapy and Meditation

    William Wells Brown was born a slave, near Lexington, Kentucky. His mother, Elizabeth, was a slave; his father was a white man who never acknowledged his paternity. Brown escaped slavery at about the age of 20. For many years he worked as a steam boatman and as a conductor for the Underground Railroad in Buffalo, New York. In 1843, he became a lecturer for the Western New York Anti-Slavery Society, and was a contemporary of Frederick Douglass.Brown went to Europe in 1849 to encourage British support for the anti-slavery movement in the United States. He remained there until 1854 when British abolitionists purchased his freedom. Soon afterward, he returned to the United States to continue his work in the abolitionist movement.Throughout his life he wrote several books, including his autobiography, Three Years In Europe; Or, Places I Have Seen And People I Have Met, Clotel, and The Rising Son; or, The Antecedents and Advancement of the Colored Race, among others. In My Southern Home: Or, The South And Its People, Brown’s final work, he reflects on his life and his experiences as a slave from a post-emancipation perspective. It is a review of his travels through several southern states during the time of slavery, including his observations and commentary on the social and political relationships between whites and African Americans of that period. (Introduction by James K. White)
