In 1967, after a twin baby boy suffered a botched circumcision, his family agreed to a radical treatment that would alter his gender. The case would become one of the most famous in modern medicine—and a total failure. As Nature Made Him tells the extraordinary story of David Reimer, who, when finally informed of his medical history, made the decision to live as a male. A macabre tale of medical arrogance, it is first and foremost a human drama of one man's—and one family's—amazing survival in the face of terrible odds.

    A renowned philosopher of the mind, also known for his groundbreaking work on Buddhism and cognitive science, Evan Thompson combines the latest neuroscience research on sleep, dreaming, and meditation with Indian and Western philosophy of the mind, casting new light on the self and its relation to the brain.   Thompson shows how the self is a changing process, not a static thing. When we are awake we identify with our body, but if we let our mind wander or daydream, we project a mentally imagined self into the remembered past or anticipated future. As we fall asleep, the impression of being a bounded self distinct from the world dissolves, but the self reappears in the dream state. If we have a lucid dream, we no longer identify only with the self within the dream. Our sense of self now includes our dreaming self, the “I” as dreamer. Finally, as we meditate—either in the waking state or in a lucid dream—we can observe whatever images or thoughts arise and how we tend to identify with them as “me.” We can also experience sheer awareness itself, distinct from the changing contents that make up our image of the self.   Contemplative traditions say that we can learn to let go of the self, so that when we die we can witness the dissolution of the self with equanimity. Thompson weaves together neuroscience, philosophy, and personal narrative to depict these transformations, adding uncommon depth to life’s profound questions. Contemplative experience comes to illuminate scientific findings, and scientific evidence enriches the vast knowledge acquired by contemplatives.

    This guide will help you to get a better understanding of what Ethereum is and how Ethereum works. You will find a wealth of information on this very useful and game changing system without having to sift through a bunch of technical jargons.
    What is Ethereum?  A World Computer
    Ethereum is basically a "world computer".  Remember the days of the mainframe? Well Ethereum is basically like a single computer that the entire world can use. It carries only a single processor internationally. It doesn’t require multi-threading or parallel execution.  Ethereum, also has an amazing memory capacity as, it carries as much memory as it requires. Alas!  There will be no need to get IT to bump up your server memory or buy additional memory card with Ethereum.

    This book comprises a series of Chicago Tribune articles on the Lincoln Park Zoo's partnership with the Serengeti Health Initiative to eradicate the spread and infection rate of rabies in Tanzania. Complete with full-color photography of the villagers, their homes, and the surrounding African wildlife and landscapes, Fighting Rabies is a powerful and illustrative investigation into the efforts to eliminate a vicious disease in a ravaged community.Over 70,000 people die every year from rabies infections, many of whom live in remote and impoverished areas of Africa. This epidemic—prevalent in communities close to wildlife but limited in their access to health and veterinary care—is particularly tragic because rabies can be significantly limited and even prevented through modern medicine. In fact, several developed countries are now completely rabies-free, while developing nations still face unnecessarily high rates of mortality from the disease.Fighting Rabies explores the stories of the villagers who have been victimized by rabies, as well as the efforts of researchers from the Lincoln Park Zoo to inoculate dogs against the virus and rebuild the surrounding populations of wild animals. This is a captivating and moving story of bridging cultures for a greater good, and creating better living conditions for both people and the neighboring wildlife.
