In Oneness With All Life, Eckhart Tolle has picked the essential phrases and paragraphs-the gems of the book-that he feels are most important and reorganized them so readers can focus on the most powerful ideas. Beautifully packaged with evocative artwork and design, it is the perfect gift for anyone with a well-worn copy of A New Earth who wants deeper insight into this seminal work.

The Freakonomics of the digital economy, offering fascinating insights into the new rules that are reshaping the online worlds of business, education, and leisure.Are you concerned that technology and the web are moving too quickly for you to keep up? Are you worried about the future of your career in the face of an increasingly global and competitive workforce? We all worry about change. And the changes being brought about by unseen forces in the global economy are profound. Do you know someone who has lost their job in the last five years working in IT, media, finance, or retail? These industries and many others are already feeling the pinch of online gravity: the invisible forces of the online world that govern its role in the global economy--and its effect on you. Industry expert Paul X. McCarthy reveals how online businesses are fueled by a starkly different set of economic rules than those existing purely offline. He calls these forces "online gravity," which favor the creation of planet-like super-businesses (such as Amazon and Google) from surprising and unpredictable quarters. As more and more traditional industries such as media, music, travel, photography, and even banking are steadily consumed and transformed by giant online enterprises, more and more of the world is feeling online gravity's increasingly powerful pull. For anyone interested in the future of global technology, economics, or business, Online Gravity is an indispensible book that explains how you can harness these forces to improve your career, your health, your wealth--and even the prospects of the next generation.
Why have local video shops disappeared and been replaced by Netflix? Why are hotels being replaced by AirBnB? Why is Amazon the only company who can sell you the book you want to read? And why is there no Pepsi in cyberspace? They are all under the influence of Online Gravity, the unseen force driving the way business is done online, and changing the face of work and employment now and over the coming decades. Online Gravity has formed huge planet-like companies which dominate the online business world and either eat up or blitz their competition. We all hear about jobs being replaced by technology. McCarthy, industry expert and big data analyst, shows that rather than reducing jobs, Online Gravity has replaced 2.6 jobs for every one lost. And while the phenomenon of Online Gravity is startling, it is entirely transparent and follows its own distinct set of rules and laws. McCarthy identifies the 'secret sauces' that have not only driven success for these companies but can help us - and our children - as workers and future business owners of the 21st century. In this must-have guide to negotiating our future in an increasingly digital world, he shows us what Online Gravity is, how it works and how we can harness it for our own success. Witty, pithy and full of astounding ideas, Online Gravity is not only a highly enjoyable read but an essential handbook for the decades ahead.

This volume examines the development and growing use of online student ratings and the potential impact online rating systems will have on the future of students' evaluations of teaching. The contributors demonstrate how the preference for online evaluation is growing, even amidst challenges and doubt. Sharing their first-hand experience as researchers and administrators of online systems, they explore major concerns regarding online student ratings and suggest possible solutions. D. Lynn Sorenson and Christian M. Reiner review existing online-rating systems that have been developed independently across the globe. Kevin Hoffman presents the results of a national survey that tracks the increased use of the Internet for student ratings of instruction. At Northwestern University, Nedra Hardy demonstrates how ongoing research about online student evaluations is helping to dispel common misperceptions. Application of online rating systems can present institutions with new challenges and obligations. Trav D. Johnson details a case study based on five years of research in the response rates for one university's online evaluation system and suggests strategies to increase student participation. Reviewing online reporting of results of online student ratings, Donna C. Llewellyn explores the emerging issues of security, logistics, and confidentiality. Other chapters explore existing online systems, highlighting their potential benefits for institution and instructor alike. Beatrice Tucker, Sue Jones, Lean Straker, and Joan Cole analyze Course Evaluation on the Web (CEW), a comprehensive online system for instructional feedback and improvement. Cheryl Davis Bullock reviews the Evaluation Online (EON) system and its successful role in facilitating midcourse student feedback. The fate of online rating may rest in the unique advantages it may - or may not - have over traditional ratings systems. Debbie E. McGhee and Nana Lowell compare online and paper-based methods through mean ratings, inter-rater reliabilities and factor structure of items. Comparing systems from another angle, Timothy W. Bothell and Tom Henderson examine the fiscal costs and benefits of implementing an online evaluation system over paper-based systems. Finally, Christina Ballantyne considers the prominent issues and thought-provoking ideas for the future of online student ratings raised in this volume. Together, the contributors bring insight and understanding to the processes involved in researching and initiating innovations in online-rating systems. This is the 96th issues of the quarterly journal New Directions for Teaching and Learning.

From New York Times bestselling author and "grand mistress of storytelling" (Romantic Times) Sabrina Jeffries comes the second seductive story in her School for Heiresses Series. "You can't avoid him forever, Louisa. Just tell him you're not interested, and put an end to it." -- Mrs. Charlotte Harris, headmistress Marry? Never! It would end Louisa North's work with her ladies reform group -- and truth be told, she likes her independence very much, despite her royal father's protests. So when Simon Tremaine, the dashing Duke of Foxmoor whom she once loved -- and had exiled from England -- returns bent on marrying her, she's skeptical. Does he truly care for her, or does he simply want revenge? It's difficult to resist Simon's dangerous charms, because the fire between them still burns as hot as ever. But when his ulterior motive for marriage is exposed, along with the deeply buried secrets of his past, Louisa vows to make him pay . . . and the price will be his heart.
An inspiring book about the power and the passion of science Few have weighed in on the nation's contentious debate over evolution as effectively as Kenneth R. Miller. In Only a Theory, Miller-the highly regarded scientist who offered expert testimony at the 2005 trial over the teaching of evolution in Dover, Pennsylvania-eloquently shows how "Intelligent Design" collapses at the very moment one begins to take it seriously. Miller shows that the attack on evolution is a broader assault on the skepticism and reason that have fueled America's remarkable scientific advances, and offers an encouraging prescription for how we can save the nation's "scientific soul" to which we owe so much. .

Only a Woman deals with the felt need among women for surrender, growth, and service to the Lord. National conference speaker Terri McFaddin brings a motivational message for women to seek a deeper relationship with God by taking "radical action" for Him. While other books are centered around comforting and healing women, McFaddin recounts examples of women who reached beyond the traditional practice of Christianity "into biblical extremes designed to bring power, healing, and deliverance" to their lives -- and the lives of all around them. "Sooner or later you will find yourself searching for answers that can't be found at choir rehearsals and garden parties," says McFaddin, who offers clear answers here.From the Trade Paperback edition.

Leslie Vandekeere thought her big-city career made her life worthwhile, but a move to small-town Montana shows her how big the world really is. Leslie Vandekeere had a good life: a happy family, a great career (even if it did pull her away from home), and all the energy of urban living. But she finds herself miles away from the city she knows and loves when her husband moves her and the kids back to his boyhood home in Montana to help his mother work the struggling family farm. Being a farmer's wife was definitely not in Leslie's plan, and now she finds herself dealing with dirty cows, giant machinery, eccentric neighbors, and an extended family she doesn't quite fit into.
