From the Introduction: Prayer. It's something we all do, even those of us who may not especially think that we believe in God or a Higher Power. Think about it. . . how many times in the course of a week, a day, or even a single hour do you say the words, "Oh God," or "God help me"? You may not think this is praying, but in a very fundamental way, it is prayer in its most basic form--a plea or call to God for help, assistance, or guidance. Like millions of people in this world, I use prayer every day of my life. It centers me, rejuvenates me, and puts me in touch with the universe and its maker. It has opened, and continues to open, my spirit and soul to the infinite power and possibilities of the life energy that connects us all. This is a book about how I came to embrace the power of prayer in a very practical way, thus the title, Practical Praying. Specifically, I will discuss and share with you my personal method of praying, using meditation and the Rosary. They have enhanced my life immeasurably, and it is my sincere hope that they will do the same for you. ... Yes, gentle reader, this is the same author who wrote such books as Developing Your Own Psychic Powers and Unleashing Your Psychic Potential. A touching and inspiring book.
Do you have psychic potential? Do you possess gifts that you fail to recognize? Can you really learn to develop and use these abilities? The answer to all three questions is yes. You were born psychic. You may not have a crystal ball, but you can learn how to recognize your innate ability and apply it practically to your everyday life. Through her work as the only psychic to ever work with FBI, Noreen Renier has helped lead law enforcement authorities, crime victims, and distressed families to answers. That experience, combined with her no-nonsense approach that includes helpful exercises and meditations, will help you understand and develop your unique skills without any hocus-pocus. The Practical Psychic takes the mystery and doubt out of psychic phenomena and puts the pre-cognition into your hands to achieve a richer, wiser, and more purposeful life.
The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a structure for describing and interchanging metadata on the Web--anything from library catalogs and worldwide directories to bioinformatics, Mozilla internal data structures, and knowledge bases for artificial intelligence projects. RDF provides a consistent framework and syntax for describing and querying data, making it possible to share website descriptions more easily. RDF's capabilities, however, have long been shrouded by its reputation for complexity and a difficult family of specifications. Practical RDF breaks through this reputation with immediate and solvable problems to help you understand, master, and implement RDF solutions. Practical RDF explains RDF from the ground up, providing real-world examples and descriptions of how the technology is being used in applications like Mozilla, FOAF, and Chandler, as well as infrastructure you can use to build your own applications. This book cuts to the heart of the W3C's often obscure specifications, giving you tools to apply RDF successfully in your own projects. The first part of the book focuses on the RDF specifications. After an introduction to RDF, the book covers the RDF specification documents themselves, including RDF Semantics and Concepts and Abstract Model specifications, RDF constructs, and the RDF Schema. The second section focuses on programming language support, and the tools and utilities that allow developers to review, edit, parse, store, and manipulate RDF/XML. Subsequent sections focus on RDF's data roots, programming and framework support, and practical implementation and use of RDF and RDF/XML. If you want to know how to apply RDF to information processing, Practical RDF is for you. Whether your interests lie in large-scale information aggregation and analysis or in smaller-scale projects like weblog syndication, this book will provide you with a solid foundation for working with RDF.

This wise, funny, and compassionate book follows Gowins apprenticeship with Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan, spiritual leader of the Sufi Order International. Until now, Pir Vilayat's order has not had a strong, accessible introduction. This book not only provides that service but is more down-to-earth than most books on Sufism. It also has the advantage of being universalistic. "The Sufi Way is not a religion or a component of a religion but the heart of all religions and spiritualities," Gowins says. Because it is non-dogmatic and offers no catechisms or creeds, its teachers are essential. Gowins emerges as a superb teacher, offering a user-friendly guide to the Sufi Way that is at once valuable to any seeker entering any spiritual path. Gowins is quick to emphasize that Sufism is not the only path or even the right path for everyone. His approach is full of engaging stories and specific practices that could be helpful in many circumstances. Readers will benefit from his gentle Sufi teachings of love, tolerance, unity, and consciousness, no matter what their chosen path.
