Act Or React. Have you ever been moved to act? Have you ever taken a leap of faith, unsure where you would land? Maybe you weren’t completely ready to quit your job and go out on your own. Maybe you didn’t know how your co-workers would respond when you told them you were going to Uganda on a two-week mission trip. We have all stepped out on faith one time or another, in both big and small ways. But have you ever wondered why? What causes us to speak up when there is silence, what makes us finally put the for-sale sign in our front yard? What if we could pinpoint that moment in time, and figure out what moves people to act? Act or React will take us on a journey of discovery to find out how we go from standing on the sidelines to actually getting inthe game of life and playing with purpose. Author Caz McCaslin, founder and president of Upward Sports, shares his own story to help readers examine the ongoing process which moves us from thinking about doing something to actually doing something. Concepts like Awareness, Passion, Vision, Readiness, and Intentionality, will bring to light what we have to do to live others-focused. Do we react? Do we act? Or do we do both?

Social Work And The Environment. This ground-breaking new work provides a detailed and extensive comparison of how the physical environment has been conceptualized in social work and other professions, and offers a new and attractive foundational metaphor for social work. The author acknowledges the need for greater awareness and action regarding environmental impacts and the book promotes more comprehensive notions of responsibility, identity, and stewardship that lead to a dynamic metaphor of people as place as the foundation for relevant social work practice in the early 21st century. Why is that a profession with a declared focus on ""person-in-environment"" has been so silent on the environmental crisis? Mainstream social work theory has narrowed the understanding of environment to include merely the social environment, but this approach is no longer sufficient for participation in multi-disciplinary efforts to tackle urgent environmental issues. Transformative notions of responsibility, identity, and stewardship have been developed on the fringes of our professional community: rural/remote social workers, Aboriginal social workers, and international and spiritual social workers. They must now move to the core of the profession.

Thoughts I. Thoughts I is an unconventional book. Thoughts I consists of poetry, prose and short stories in an unconventional manner. Thoughts are supposed to take place inside the mind, so the purpose behind Thoughts I is to make the reader think. Reading is supposed to be enjoyable as well as entertaining. Yet because Thoughts I is an unconventional book, it may and mostly will frustrate any reader who conforms to a regimented written style of literature. But for those readers who are looking for something different, Thoughts I may be refreshing and appealing to your senses. Hopefully it will inspire you to think, at the very least. Yet, as the author of Thoughts I, I hope to inspire more then just your mind. I hope to touch your heart and your soul. And if I can do that, then I've accomplished what I've set out to do.

Debating Dispositions. Ordinary language and scientific discourse are filled with linguistic expressions for dispositional properties such as "soluble," "elastic," "reliable," and "humorous." We characterize objects in all domains - physical objects as well as human persons - with the help of dispositional expressions. Hence, the concept of a disposition has historically and systematically played a central role in different areas of philosophy ranging from metaphysics to ethics. The contributions of this volume analyze the ancient foundations of the discussion about disposition, examine the problem of disposition within the context of the foundation of modern science, and analyze this dispute up to the 20th century. Furthermore, articles explore the contemporary theories of dispositions.

Total fear, horror, and despair engulfed him, all fueled by an unimaginable hopelessness. Slowly his finger tightened on the trigger.

The Oxford Anthology Of Roman Literature. Though the wonders of ancient Roman culture continue to attract interest across the disciplines, it is difficult to find a lively, accessible collection of the full range of the era's literature in English. The Oxford Anthology of Roman Literature provides a general introduction to the literature of the Roman empire at its zenith, between the second century BC and the second century AD. Two features of this extraordinarily fertile period in literary achievement as evidenced by this anthology are immediately and repeatedly clear: how similar the Romans' view of the world was to our own and, perhaps even more obviously, how different it was. Most of the authors included in the anthology wrote in Latin, but as the anthology moves forward in time, relevant Greek texts that reflect the cultural diversity of Roman literary life are also included, something no other such anthology has done in the past. Roman literature was wonderfully creative and diverse, and the texts in this volume were chosen from a broad range of genres: drama, epic, philosophy, satire, lyric poetry, love poetry. By its very nature an anthology can abbreviate and thus obscure the most attractive features of even a masterpiece, so the two editors have not only selected texts that capture the essence of the respective authors, but also have included accompanying introductions and afterwords that will guide the reader in pursuing further reading. The presentations of the selections are enlivened with illustrations that locate the works within the contexts of the world in which they were written and enjoyed. The student and general reader will come away from this learned yet entertaining anthology with a fuller appreciation of the place occupied by literature in the Roman world.

The Oxbow Revelation. "Religious philosophy for the common man. You can focus on reason, ignoring every religious reference within the book and the self-evident values remain. But don't ignore too much; this is cutting-edge religious scholarship . . . An opening salvo for a new religious realism." ..".The Oxbow Revelation reads like Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance crossed with East of Eden-with shades of American Graffiti as its backdrop." ..". A serious, mysterious and sometimes sexy book about finding morality."
