Is mankind headed for destruction? How will it all end? When will it happen? What is man's destiny? Will we die by our own hand or by the hand of God? For thousands of years the questions have been the same. Millions of souls have searched for the answers to no avail; nevertheless, some believed they knew. We call them prophets. They saw the end of our world and they believed their visions were true. Are we to believe their God-given insights into the End Of Days? Perhaps God did pull back the curtain that blinds man to his future. Maybe these writers did see the end and how it would come upon us. The prophets of doom revealed a scenario of global cataclysm. They tell the story of rulers bankrupting nations to fund tremendous wars. They tell of weather gone awry; of ice and snow, rain and floods, hurricanes and earthquakes where seldom they occurred. They tell us of what is happening all around us today.

Fragmented Women

Feminist (Sub)versions of Biblical Narratives

Author: J. Cheryl Exum

Publisher: A&C Black

ISBN: 0567198073

Category: Religion

Page: 223

View: 5814

In the biblical narratives, women are usually minor characters in the stories of men. Fragments of women's stories must be gleaned from the more cohesive stories of their fathers, husbands and sons. Fragmented Women begins with the premise that, to recover shards of women's stories from androcentric texts like the Bible, it is necessary to step outside the ideology of the text, subverting the patriarchal perspective that has focused attention on the male characters. In this important new work, the author draws on contemporary feminist literary theory to critique the dominant male voice of the biblical narrative and to construct (sub)versions of women's stories from the submerged strains of their voices in men's stories.

Scientific Methods for Negotiating Medical Uncertainty

Medical professionals, scientists, and patients have long grappled with the dubious nature of medical certainty regarding diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of disease states. Modern Western medicine strives for certainty by monitoring symptoms, modeling risk, and controlling knowledge. In the 1990s, evidence-based medicine became coin of the realm for managing uncertainty. This turn toward evidence-based medicine has proved highly contentious, however. Considerable scholarship has emerged exploring the complex nature of evidence-based medical decision making. Many scholars have sought to account for affect, logic, intuition, persuasion, and experiential knowledge in medicine. But what of the pre-deliberative practices that render the grounds upon which decisions are made? What of the agentic capacity of evidence itself? Inspired by these questions, in Bodies in Flux: Scientific Methods for Negotiating Uncertainty, technical communication scholar Christa Teston explores the discursive and material methods by which medical evidence is designed and the pre-deliberative, rhetorical design work that affords grounds upon which uncertainty is identified and managed when medical decisions are made. She explores specific sites (pathology laboratories and FDA drug hearings) and methodological practices (statistical analysis and genetic sequencing) of medical decision making to reveal the real-time assemblages of people, bodies, practices, and objects that create evidences that are later used to make decisions about treatment. In doing so she reveals the complexity of this work and demonstrates ways in which medical evidence is not definitively objective. Rather than viewing construction of certainty as an exclusively human enterprise, she demonstrates how humans and nonhuman agents co-construct certainty in real-world medical settings where life-and-death decisions must be made.

Are Policy Variables Exogenous?

The Econometric Implications of Learning While Maximizing

This book explores the econometric implications of a policy-maker's learning. In a simple discrete model the policymaker maximizes the discounted sum of tax revenues subject to a constraint which involves an unknown parameter specifying the occurrence of Bayesian learning. An optimal balance needs to be found between maximizing current payoff and generating information which enhances the efficiency of maximization in subsequent periods. Learning is demonstrated to affect the exogeneity status of policy variables in small samples and to have implications analogous to the phenomenon in the focus of the Lucas critique. Active learning is proven to be a distinct cause of time inconsistency of optimal plane. It is argued that learning cannot be dismissed as a merely transitory source of these phenomena. A simulation exercise supplies quantitative evidence. Finally, the data generated are used to perform empirical exogeneity tests. Results show that the effect of Bayesian learning is empirically detectable. Learning is generally accepted as the driving force towards a rational expectations equilibrium with perfect information. In this context, the result on the loss of exogeneity of policy variables is an out-of-equilibrium econometric implication of the rational expectations hypothesis. This book is the first to explore the effect of an informational feedback on exogeneity.

You are called to a higher place in GOD. A hunger for more is growing in the hearts of an increasing number of Christians who sense that what God has promised is much greater than what they've actually experienced. But the answers won't be found in the spiritual hero on the platform despite how good the messages might be. Ultimately, the solution can be found only in a deeper understanding of the Father's heart. In Yes, There's More R. Loren Sandford covers topics such as: The difference between faith and feelings God's interest in who you are becoming rather than what you're receiving How to let your light shine and not hide it away The intimacy and trust that come from being God's friend The importance of alignment with God in prayer Developing a correct understanding of grace

Winner of the 2017 JPBM Communications Award for Expository and Popular Books. "A delightful meta-biography--playful indeed--of a brilliant iconoclast.Â?? --James Gleick, author of The Information John Horton Conway is a singular mathematician with a lovely loopy brain. He is Archimedes, Mick Jagger, Salvador Dali, and Richard Feynman all rolled into one--he boasts a rock star's charisma, a slyly bent sense of humor, a polymath's promiscuous curiosity, and an insatiable compulsion to explain everything about the world to everyone in it. At Cambridge, Conway wrestled with "Monstrous Moonshine," discovered the aptly named surreal numbers, and invented the cult classic Game of Life--more than just a cool fad, Life demonstrates how simplicity generates complexity and provides an analogy for mathematics and the entire universe. As a "mathemagician" at Princeton, he used ropes, dice, pennies, coat hangers, even the occasional Slinky, as props to extend his winning imagination and share his many nerdish delights. He granted Roberts full access to his idiosyncrasies and intellect both, though not without the occasional grumble: "Oh hell," he'd say. "You're not going to put that in the book. Are you?!?"
