Designed to help people find their way around the sector, this book includes interviews with philanthropists, advisers and fundraisers, and provides practical insider knowledge to access donors and donor information.

Author: Rebecca Solnit, Thelma Young Lutunatabua
Narrator: Katherine Littrell, Robin Miles, Kyla Garcia, Soneela Nankani, Steven Jay Cohen, Hillary Huber, Vikas Adam, Erin deWard, Ramón de Ocampo, Patryce Williams

An energizing case for hope about the climate comes from Rebecca Solnit, called "the voice of the resistance" by the New York Times, and climate activist Thelma Young Lutunatabua, along with a chorus of voices calling on us to rise to the moment. Not Too Late is the book for anyone who is despondent, defeatist, or unsure about climate change and seeking answers. As the contributors to this volume make clear, the future will be decided by whether we act in the present-and we must act to counter institutional inertia, fossil fuel interests, and political obduracy. Guided by Rebecca Solnit’s typical clear-eyed wisdom, Not Too Late leads listeners from discouragement to possibilities, from climate despair to climate hope.

Author: Paul Angone
Narrator: Mike Chamberlain

What are you supposed to do with your life? What deserves your limited reserve of energy, attention, and time? What’s making you anxious or frustrated right now? What would make you happy and fulfilled? The world is shouting its answers to these questions, but the real answers are quieter-and right in front of you. They are in the details of your day, every day. But we usually look right past them. Or we are simply so distracted we’ve lost the ability to see and hear the life going on right in front of us. If we’re not intentional about changing this trend, this "inattentional blindness" can rob us of years of joyful productivity. But when we learn to observe the details of our days, we discover new lenses through which to see and new practices of paying attention that add meaning to life. Stop drifting. Stop worrying. Stop living distracted. Walk purposefully through life with a firm grasp on what’s important to you and what you’re working toward-all by listening to the details of your day.


The Changing Face of Alterity Communication, Technology, and Other Subjects

Free Download David J. Gunkel, "The Changing Face of Alterity: Communication, Technology, and Other Subjects "
English | ISBN: 1783488697 | 2016 | 238 pages | PDF | 9 MB
The figure of the ‘other’ is fundamental to the concept of communication. Online or offline, communication, which is commonly defined as the act of sending or imparting information to others, is only possible in the face of others. In fact, the reason we communicate is to interact with others-to talk to another, to share our thoughts and insights with them, or to respond to their needs and requests. No matter how it is structured or conceptualized, communication is involved with addressing the other and dealing with the ontological, epistemological, and ethical questions of otherness or alterity. But who or what can be other? Who or what can be the subject of communication? Is the other always and only another human? Or can the other in these communicative interactions be otherwise?
