Traditional economics measures the ways in which we spend our income, but doesn´t attribute worth to the crucial human interactions that give our lives meaning. Clair Brown, an economics professor at U.C. Berkeley and a practicing Buddhist, has developed a holistic model, one based on the notion that quality of life should be measured by more than national income. Brown advocates an approach to organizing the economy that embraces rather than skirts questions of values, sustainability, and equity. Complementing the award-winning work of Jeffrey Sachs and Bill McKibben, and the paradigm-breaking spirit of Amartya Sen, Robert Reich, and Thomas Piketty, Brown incorporates the Buddhist emphasis on interdependence, shared prosperity, and happiness into her vision for a sustainable and compassionate world. Buddhist Economics leads us to think mindfully as we go about our daily activities, and offers a way to appreciate how our actions affect the well-being of those around us. By replacing the endless cycle of desire with more positive collective activities, we can make our lives more meaningful as well as happier. Inspired by the popular course Professor Brown teaches at U.C. Berkeley, Buddhist Economics represents an enlightened approach to our modern world infused with ancient wisdom, with benefits both personal and global, for generations to come.

In her critically-acclaimed Leaving Church (´´a beautiful, absorbing memoir,´´ said the Dallas Morning News), Barbara Brown Taylor wrote about leaving full-time ministry to become a professor, a decision that stretched the boundaries of her faith. Now, in her stunning follow-up, An Altar in the World, she shares how she learned to encounter God beyond the walls of any church. From simple practices such as walking, working, and getting lost to deep meditations on topics like prayer and pronouncing blessings, Taylor reveals concrete ways to discover the sacred in the small things we do and see. Something as ordinary as hanging clothes on a clothesline becomes an act of devotion if we pay attention to what we are doing and take time to attend to the sights, smells, and sounds around us. Making eye contact with the cashier at the grocery store becomes a moment of true human connection. Allowing yourself to get lost leads to new discoveries. Under Taylor´s expert guidance, we come to question conventional distinctions between the sacred and the secular, learning that no physical act is too earthbound or too humble to become a path to the divine. As we incorporate these practices into our daily lives, we begin to discover altars everywhere we go, in nearly everything we do. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Barbara Brown Taylor.

´´This is a crucial and timely book on ethics in engineering and science by one of the world´s foremost ethicists of technology and society. Every engineering department should read and use this book for planning their curricula.´´--Stephen R. Barley, University of California, Santa Barbara´´The Ethical Engineer offers a highly original and rich conceptual portrait of the many ethical facets of engineering practice today. Through a sophisticated analysis of issues encountered in a vast array of context-specific domains and engineering fields, this book offers powerful and much-needed tools to equip engineers with an ethical mindset that informs their understanding and guides them in their day-to-day professional conduct.´´--Rafael Pardo, director of the BBVA Foundation´´Engineering and science are among the strongest of social forces, but with their long latency, the good and bad resulting from these fields can be difficult to foresee. Nuclear weapons, combustion engines, chemistry-based agriculture, the internet, and machine intelligence--all are examples of areas posing ethical challenges for society and the educational institutions tasked with the development of citizenship. Timely and welcome, The Ethical Engineer articulates thoughtful, robust approaches to such complex issues.´´--Sandip Tiwari, Cornell University´´McGinn has written a highly accessible and very useful guide for courses on engineering ethics. Students will acquire a sense of the issues they should be concerned with as well as a feel for the challenges they will face as engineers. There is no other book quite like this one, and it will be a boon to engineering education everywhere.´´--Daniel Doneson, Massachusetts Institute of Technology´´This tremendously valuable book does a good job of distilling contemporary issues in engineering ethics and of making the case that ethics must be included in an engineer´s education. The book effectively incorporates theory, examples, and resources and demonstrates that engineering ethics is continuously evolving.´´--Raluca Scarlat, University of Wisconsin?Madison´´In the past, I have struggled to find a book that contains engineering ethics cases with adequate ethical review and analysis. The Ethical Engineer has them and I would recommend it for classroom use.´´--Dianne Quigley, Brown University

The 1969 Mercenary Edition is a new product that derives from a collaboration between two of the audio industry´s most established names, Drawmer (UK) and Mercenary Audio (USA). When Ivor Drawmer rose to the challenge of outspoken US producer/engineer ´Fletcher´ of Mercenary Audio to build a special version of the famed Drawmer 1960 (used by Eric Clapton, Madonna, Sheryl Crow, Stevie Wonder, Bryan Adams and thousands of artists around the world) - both sides joined forces and the 1969 Mercenary Edition was born!Main Features: -> 2 mic/line pre-amps with variable gain, 48V phantom power, filters and phase reverse. -> Instrument tube pre-amp with variable gain, EQ, phase reverse and brightness boost. -> 2 soft-knee tube compressors with variable threshold, attack, release and output gain. -> True stereo link operation with BIG position for retaining bass frequencies. -> Side chain access and side chain listen facility. -> VU metering of gain reduction and output levels. -> Individual +4dB/-10dB inserts / Balanced +4dB XLR input/output connectors.Based on Drawmer´s original 1960 Mic Pre-Amp/Tube Compressor (itself inspired by the classic Fairchild 670), the 1969 offers a host of new features, and more impressively - a completely new sound!Retaining the concept of twin mic pre-amps, the 1969 uses ´Burr-Brown´ op amps for a silkier sound - and a Phase Reverse switch available in Instrument, Mic and Line modes increases versatility. The 1969 employs true Stereo Link operation with channel one´s Threshold, Attack and Release controls becoming master to both channels. Stereo Link also offers a BIG position which retains bass frequencies by rolling off the detection signal at 100Hz minimizing undesirable pumping during compression. Output Gain make-up can be independently controlled on each channel. The 1969 Mercenary Edition incorporates new tube circuits designed to add warmth to mic/line signals, and the instrument (DI) pre-amp has its own tube stage enabling classic overdrive effects when inserting guitar, bass and other instruments - true to the original Drawmer 1960 design.
´´Eric Evans has written a fantastic book on how you can make the design of your software match your mental model of the problem domain you are addressing. ´´His book is very compatible with XP. It is not about drawing pictures of a domain; it is about how you think of it, the language you use to talk about it, and how you organize your software to reflect your improving understanding of it. Eric thinks that learning about your problem domain is as likely to happen at the end of your project as at the beginning, and so refactoring is a big part of his technique. ´´The book is a fun read. Eric has lots of interesting stories, and he has a way with words. I see this book as essential reading for software developers-it is a future classic.´´ - Ralph Johnson , author of Design Patterns ´´If you don´t think you are getting value from your investment in object-oriented programming, this book will tell you what you´ve forgotten to do. ´´Eric Evans convincingly argues for the importance of domain modeling as the central focus of development and provides a solid framework and set of techniques for accomplishing it. This is timeless wisdom, and will hold up long after the methodologies du jour have gone out of fashion.´´ - Dave Collins , author of Designing Object-Oriented User Interfaces ´´Eric weaves real-world experience modeling-and building-business applications into a practical, useful book. Written from the perspective of a trusted practitioner, Eric´s descriptions of ubiquitous language, the benefits of sharing models with users, object life-cycle management, logical and physical application structuring, and the process and results of deep refactoring are major contributions to our field.´´ - Luke Hohmann , author of Beyond Software Architecture This book belongs on the shelf of every thoughtful software developer. --Kent Beck What Eric has managed to capture is a part of the design process that experienced object designers have always used, but that we have been singularly unsuccessful as a group in conveying to the rest of the industry. We´ve given away bits and pieces of this knowledge...but we´ve never organized and systematized the principles of building domain logic. This book is important. --Kyle Brown, author of Enterprise Java(TM) Programming with IBM® WebSphere® The software development community widely acknowledges that domain modeling is central to software design. Through domain models, software developers are able to express rich functionality and translate it into a software implementation that truly serves the needs of its users. But despite its obvious importance, there are few practical resources that explain how to incorporate effective domain modeling into the software development process. Domain-Driven Design fills that need. This is not a book about specific technologies. It offers readers a systematic approach to domain-driven design, presenting an extensive set of design best practices, experience-based techniques, and fundamental principles that facilitate the development of software projects facing complex domains. Intertwining design and development practice, this book incorporates numerous examples based on actual projects to illustrate the application of domain-driven design to real-world software development. Readers learn how to use a domain model to make a complex development effort more focused and dynamic. A core of best practices and standard patterns provides a common language for the development team. A shift in emphasis--refactoring not just the code but the model underlying the code--in combination with the frequent iterations of Agile development leads to deeper insight into domains and enhanced communication between domain expert and programmer.
