The autism revolution : whole-body strategies for making life all it can be / by Herbert, Martha R.; Weintraub, Karen.;
Includes bibliographical references and index.From seeing what you believe to believing what you see -- Take a fresh look at autism. Go for the extraordinary ; Know what you can't control-- and what you can -- Protect and nourish the whole body : from vicious circles to resilience. Repair and support cells and cycles ; Get get and immune systems on your side ; Help the body mend the brain ; Calm brain chaos -- Transcend autism : share the strengths and lose the pain. Join your child's world ; From autistic to extraordinary ; Lead the revolution! ; Do it for yourself, your next baby, your family, and your world -- Appendixes. A, Ten tips for helping people with autism ; B, Sample forms for tracking your data ; C. Whole-body systems summary ; D, Ten tips for doctors, therapists, and scientists.After years of treating patients and analyzing scientific data, Harvard researcher and clinician Dr. Martha Herbert offers a revolutionary new view of autism and a transformative strategy for dealing with it. Autism is not a hardwired impairment programmed into a child's genes and destined to remain fixed forever. Instead, it is the result of a cascade of events, many seemingly minor. And while other doctors may dismiss your child's physical symptoms as coincidental or irrelevant, Dr. Herbert sees them as vital clues to what the underlying problems are, and how to help. Here, she teaches you how to approach autism as a collection of problems that can be overcome--and talents that can be developed. Each success you achieve gives your child more room to become healthy and to thrive. Her specific recommendations aim to provide optimal nutrition, reduce toxic exposures, shore up the immune system, reduce stress, and open the door to learning and creativity--all by understanding and truly meeting your child's needs. As thousands of families who have cobbled together these solutions themselves already know, this program can have dramatic benefits--for your child with autism, and for you, your whole family, and your next baby as well.--From publisher description.

The leaderless revolution : how ordinary people will take power and change politics in the twenty-first century / by Ross, Carne.;
Includes bibliographical references (p. [223]-231) and index."The Leaderless Revolution is a call to action for all of us. It is an extraordinarily bold book, which argues that rather than rely on failing political and economic systems to effect change, individual citizens must create change themselves through their own actions and collaboration with others. There is a whiff of revolution in the air, not only in the Middle East. This book proposes a revolution for everyone, everywhere, who feels ignored by government dominated by corporate interests and an economic system tilted toward profit and greed."--Jacket.Introduction : the sheer cliff face -- The wave and the suicide bomber -- The pact -- Anarchy = chaos -- The importance of meeting people -- The man in the white coat -- Why chess is an inappropriate metaphor for international relations, why Jackson Pollock paintings are a better but still inadequate metaphor, and why this has profound political consequences -- The means are the ends -- Kill the king! Nine principles to guide action -- Conclusion : a vision of the human.

The Russian Revolution : a very short introduction / by Smith, S. A.(Stephen Anthony),1952-;
Includes bibliographical references and index.From February toOctober -- Civil war and the foundation of the Bolshevik regime -- War communism -- NEP: politics and the economy -- NEP: society and culture.From the publisher. This concise, accessible introduction provides an analytical narrative of the main events and developments in Soviet Russia between 1917 and 1936. It examines the impact of the revolution on society as a whole{u2014}on different classes, ethnic groups, the army, men and women, youth. Its central concern is to understand how one structure of domination was replaced by another. The book registers the primacy of politics, but situates political developments firmly in the context of massive economic, social, and cultural change. Since the fall of Communism there has been much reflection on the significance of the Russian Revolution. The book rejects the currently influential, liberal interpretation of the revolution in favor of one that sees it as rooted in the contradictions of a backward society which sought modernization and enlightenment and ended in political tyranny.

Hamilton : [electronic resource] : The revolution. by Miranda, Lin-Manuel.; Hargitay, Mariska.;
Narrator: Mariska Hargitay.Lin-Manuel Miranda's groundbreaking musical Hamilton is as revolutionary as its subject, the poor kid from the Caribbean who fought the British, defended the Constitution, and helped to found the United States. Fusing hip-hop, pop, R&B, and the best traditions of theater, this once-in-a-generation show broadens the sound of Broadway, reveals the storytelling power of rap, and claims our country's origins for a diverse new generation.Hamilton: The Revolution gives readers an unprecedented view of both revolutions, from the only two writers able to provide it. Miranda, along with Jeremy McCarter, a cultural critic and theater artist who was involved in the project from its earliest stages — "since before this was even a show," according to Miranda — traces its development from an improbable performance at the White House to its landmark opening night on Broadway six years later. In addition, Miranda has written more than 200 funny, revealing footnotes for his award-winning libretto, the full text of which is published here.Their account features photos by the renowned Frank Ockenfels and veteran Broadway photographer, Joan Marcus; exclusive looks at notebooks and emails; interviews with Questlove, Stephen Sondheim, leading political commentators, and more than 50 people involved with the production; and multiple appearances by President Obama himself. The book does more than tell the surprising story of how a Broadway musical became a national phenomenon: It demonstrates that America has always been renewed by the brash upstarts and brilliant outsiders, the men and women who don't throw away their shot.Requires OverDrive Listen (file size: N/A KB) or OverDrive app (file size: 170247 KB).

Boucot -- An interview with David M. Raup / edited by David Sepkoski and David M. Raup -- Paleontology in the twenty-first century / David Jablonski -- Punctuations and paradigms : has paleobiology been through a paradigm shift? / Michael Ruse.The Paleobiological Revolution chronicles the incredible ascendance of the once-maligned science of paleontology to the vanguard of a field. With the establishment of the modern synthesis in the 1940s and the pioneering work of George Gaylord Simpson, Ernst Mayr, and Theodosius Dobzhansky, as well as the subsequent efforts of Stephen Jay Gould, David Raup, and James Valentine, paleontology became embedded in biology and emerged as paleobiology, a first-rate discipline central to evolutionary studies. Pairing contributions from some of the leading actors of the transformation with overviews from historians and philosophers of science, the essays here capture the excitement of the seismic changes in the discipline. In so doing, David Sepkoski and Michael Ruse harness the energy of the past to call for further study of the conceptual development of modern paleobiology. -- provided by publisher.Electronic reproduction.
