Summary

Hillary Rodham Clinton was the first to clearly state that: "the subjugation of women is a direct threat to the security of the United States." This declaration has come to be known as the Hillary Doctrine, and it was formally incorporated into the first Quadrennial Diplomatic and Development Review of U.S. foreign policy in 2010. If the Hillary Doctrine is justified, then how is it that Secretary of State Clinton never addressed issues of extreme gender inequality in Saudi Arabia? And how has Saudi Arabia sought to export that inequality to other states, such as Yemen? This chapter explores the complexities of the Hillary Doctrine in practice, the realities of pursuing gender equality on the national stage, the strategies Clinton and those working under her innovated to introduce gender issues diplomatically into a resistant country, and other key developments from this encounter and its reverberations across international channels.

    'I do not see why it [the machine] should not enter any one of the fields normally covered by the human intellect, and eventually compete on equal terms.'Alan Turing, 1949
     
    Today computers shape every aspect of our lives. In our pockets, we carry mobile phones with computing power that was unimaginable just 50 years ago. Every workplace has its array of desktops, servers, and laptops, and a selection of specially designed software. Many industries are embracing the promises - and the risks - of artificial intelligence. The world is changing faster than ever, and computing is at the heart of technological development.
     
    While computers themselves are modern phenomena, for centuries people have been attempting to solve complex problems, often with the aid of machines. The first computers were not machines at all, but people armed with mathematical tables and infinite patience. They were replaced by heavy, cumbersome machines that sprawled over multiple rooms. Over the course of half a century, they were transformed from an obscure tool for scientists into the quintessential consumer product.
     
    The Story of Computing takes you on an incredible journey through the ideas, the discoveries, and the personalities that shaped the modern technology on which we have come to rely.
     
    Topics include:· the birth of the computer· codebreaking in World War II· innovations in hardware and software· artificial intelligence· the internet· the challenges of cybersecurity.

    Toxic stress can occur in any home, rich or poor, regardless of age, education, or walk of life. 
     
     
    
    Research has shown that adaptive, supportive parents are the best
    at insulating their children from all but the biggest catastrophes.
    Exposure to “toxic stress” in childhood can cause depression,
    alcoholism, obesity, violent behaviour, heart disease, and even
    cancer in adulthood. Parents who are less sensitive or attentive
    or who regularly misinterpret their children’s needs can let too
    much stress trickle through, or even cause it in the first place,
    which can carry on to the next generation. 
     
    
    
    What Kind of Parent Am I? uses specially created surveys
    to identify problem areas for parents. With recommended
    resources and advice throughout, Dr. Letourneau informs and
    empowers parents to deal directly with their unique risks and
    challenges, helping them become the best parents they can be.

    ‘This is The Good Life meets A Year in Provence’. Sue Collins, The Nualas 
    ‘A luminous, funny and profound reading experience.’ Sebastian Barry  
    First, a dream of escaping the city… and then a century-old cottage to match the dream. Moving to a small village in the heart of the countryside was the beginning of a new life for Philip Judge and his Beloved – the beginning of life In Sight of Yellow Mountain.  
    Judge describes the season-by-season charms and frustrations that he, his Beloved, and eventually, his two growing boys experience as they adapt to life in the countryside. 
    There are highs and lows. Wellies and tweeds are bought. Vegetable patches cultivated. Lambs are born, calves die. There is weather: good and bad; health and happiness; illness and sadness. The city slicker fails miserably at Name That Grain! and makes many faux pas along the way, but ultimately, this is the story of one man, and his growing family, experiencing the pleasure that is finding home.
