Summary

Whether it is true or not that not more than twelve persons in all the world are able to understand Einstein's Theory, it is nevertheless a fact that there is a constant demand for information about this much-debated topic of relativity. The books published on the subject are so technical that only a person trained in pure physics and higher mathematics is able to fully understand them. In order to make a popular explanation of this far-reaching theory available, the present book is published.

Professor Lorentz is credited by Einstein with sharing the development of his theory. He is doubtless better able than any other man—except the author himself—to explain this scientific discovery.

    Experience this insightful course on the environment.These 12 thought-provoking lectures will give you a distinctly Catholic understanding of the earth. As you explore ecological theology and environmental ethics, you will focus on the themes of origin, crisis, conversion, and action. Using Sacred Scripture, the insights of the Franciscan tradition, and modern Catholic social teaching, you will discover a holistic approach to God, humanity, and creation.For Catholics, the environment has always been a deeply spiritual and ethical issue. From the Psalms to Franciscan theology, the Catholic tradition emphasizes the importance of caring for all of God's creation. And with Pope Francis' 2015 encyclical on the environment, Laudato si', issues such as climate change and protecting the planet have moved to the forefront.In this powerful course, you will explore the relationship between science and religion, understanding God as the generous Creator who has entrusted us with care for the Earth. Then, you will consider the ways in which humans have forgotten this responsibility and how we can reverse the destruction of the earth. With this in mind, you will look at what the life of Christ, the Franciscan tradition, and modern Catholic social teaching can teach you about living justly and sustainably.Ultimately, you will emerge with a sense of renewed hope in the face of a global crisis. Embark on this essential journey through God's creation today.

    When Marcus Eriksen co-founded the 5 Gyres Institute and set out to study marine pollution, he discovered that a plastic smog of microparticles permeates the world's oceans, defying easy clean-up efforts. What's more, these microplastics have seeped into the food chain, threatening marine animals and humans alike. Far from being a gloomy treatise on an environmental catastrophe, Junk Raft tells the story of Eriksen's fight to raise awareness and solve the problem of plastic pollution. Eriksen writes of his voyage aboard his homemade junk raft, and along the way he recounts his successful efforts to fight corporate influence and demand that plastics producers take responsibility for a problem they've created. Eriksen provides concrete, actionable solutions and an empowering call for all of us to courageously challenge the status quo for the sake of the planet.

    A study of advancements in neural technology, what they can do, and where they could lead us. 
     
    Once the stuff of science fiction, neural prosthetics are now a reality. Research and technology are creating implants that enable the deaf to hear, the blind to see, and the paralyzed to move. 
     
    Shattered Nerves leads us into a new medical frontier, where sophisticated, state-of-the-art medical devices repair and restore failed sensory and motor systems. In a compelling narrative that reveals the intimate relationship between technology and the physicians, scientists, and patients who bring it to life, Victor D. Chase explores groundbreaking developments in neural technology. 
     
    Through personal interviews and extensive research, Chase introduces us to the people and devices that are restoring shattered lives—from implants that enable the paralyzed to stand, walk, feed, and groom themselves, to those that restore bladder and bowel control, and even sexual function. Signals from the brains of paralyzed people are captured and transformed to allow them to operate computers. Brain implants hold the potential to resolve psychiatric illnesses and to restore the ability to form memories in damaged brains. 
     
    Chase also explores troubling boundaries between restoration and enhancement, where implants could conceivably endow the able-bodied with superhuman capabilities. He concludes with a provocative question: Just because we can, does that mean we should? 
     
    “Chase has looked into the future of broken nervous systems and how we might fix them?with all of the corresponding hopes and perils. . . . A fascinating book, both stimulating and exciting, and makes you think about what it means to be human.” —Michael S. Gazzaniga, author of The Ethical Brain
