The Eight Paradoxes of Great Leadership unpacks the fresh strategies and new mindset required today from a next generation leader. Author Dr. Tim Elmore helps leaders of all kinds navigate increasingly complex, rapidly changing environments, as well as manage teams who bring a range of new demands and expectations to the workplace that haven’t been seen even one generation prior.

Having trained hundreds of thousands of young professionals to develop into leaders—Dr. Elmore shares the secrets of next generation leaders who have practiced the unique paradoxes outlined in this book and inspired their team members in a way that a paycheck never could. In The Eight Paradoxes of Great Leadership, readers will: Learn how today’s team members require a combination of different qualities from their leaders than they did in even the recent past; Grasp the importance of eight key paradoxes that are critical for next generation leaders to put into practice right now; Be inspired by historic and modern-day leaders who lived the eight paradoxes; and Understand how they too can lead with the eight paradoxes, guiding them to emotional and social intelligence that resonates with their teams and leads to outstanding collaborative results.

A wide-ranging Black feminist interrogation, reaching from the #MeToo movement to the legacy of gender-based violence against Black women From Michelle Obama to Condoleezza Rice, Black women are uniquely scrutinized in the public eye. In Re-Imagining Black Women, Nikol G. Alexander-Floyd explores how Black women—and Blackness more broadly—are understood in our political imagination and often become the subjects of public controversy. Drawing on politics, popular culture, psychoanalysis, and more, Alexander-Floyd examines our conflicting ideas, opinions, and narratives about Black women, showing how they are equally revered and reviled as an embodiment of good and evil, cast either as victims or villains, citizens or outsiders. Ultimately, Alexander-Floyd showcases the complex experiences of Black women as political subjects. At a time of extreme racial tension, Re-Imagining Black Women provides insight into the parts that Black women play, and are expected to play, in politics and popular culture.

ANTHONY L. HALL takes aim at the global events of 2020 with a unique and refreshing perspective. Some of the topics in this volume include: Governments ordering lockdowns to combat Covid-19 “Telling people to lockdown to combat Covid makes about as much sense as it would’ve been to tell people to stop having sex to fight HIV. ... Mandating wearing masks, like wearing seatbelts (or promoting the use of masks, like the use of condoms), would have been a lot cheaper and more effective.” Trump failing to defend America against Russian cyber attacks “America is now a certifiably dysfunctional, dystopian, and defenseless mess. Superpower?! Hell, even the Roman Empire was never this, er, messed up before the fall. Evidently that ‘shining city on a hill’ was just the flickering embers of a supernova.” Kim declaring nuclear deal with Trump a bust “Kim Jong-un is feeling like a woman scorned. Never mind that he behaved throughout his affair with Donald Trump like a shrew—too uptight to screw.” Harry and Meghan announcing split from royal family “Most Britons will feel about Meghan breaking up the royals the way they felt about Yoko breaking up the Beatles.” ‘The Last Dance’ revealing how Bulls paid Jordan like a king, Pippen like a pauper “Michael is clearly the NBA’s GOAT. Unfortunately, Pippen is arguably its greatest goat of all time.” Chinese leaders quarantining millions to contain Covid-19 “Practice from quarantining millions of Uyghur Muslims for years in religious-cleansing camps means that they are doing so in this case with Nazi-like efficiency.” Democrats trying to impeach Trump “Even if lead House manager Rep. Adam Schiff were Christ incarnate, he would still be unable to break the cult-like loyalty Republicans show their two-legged golden calf.” Republicans bending over to be cuckolded by Trump “The more he humiliates white Republican men the more they like him. Hell, some like Senator Ted Cruz of Texas even like him when he humiliates their wives, which puts a fetishistic twist on cuckoldry that is just too perverse for words.” White cops patrolling Black communities “It’s a curious thing that Black men seem so willing to cede that role (of protecting their own) to white men, who seem all too eager to patrol Black communities like invading soldiers.” Mary Trump’s tell-all selling like hotcakes “Given the egregious way Donald exaggerates his wealth, the irony cannot be lost on Mary that this book could make her the richest Trump of them all. It might not be revenge, but it would be sweet.”

While communication theory has not recognized the implications of the social intuitionist model, psychologists have gathered an impressive body of evidence to support the theory. In social cognition research, there was the idea that human inferential processes are conscious, rational, logical, and accurate, and this belief continues somewhat in the behavioral sciences although there is evidence that it is incorrect. A fresh examination is needed on just how these inferences by the receiver and the implications by the sender, carried out at high speed, impact our understanding of the communication process. Simply put, until now the default case in communication theory is the belief that we consciously reason and then we act. However, that may not be entirely true. Rationalist Bias in Communication Theory applies social intuition theory to human communication. This book explores how research has missed accounting for a critical fact about human communication in the theories of communication, namely that we as humans can respond to one another and to all kinds of stimuli faster than we can deliberate. By applying intuitive cognition to communication, a new light can be shed on the communication process, which is what the chapters prove and discuss. This book is valuable for social scientists, practitioners, researchers, academicians, and students interested in new theories in communication theory.

'It's a little book of wonder, it's fantastic' Chris Evans 'A fabulously sparky, wide-ranging and horizon-broadening little study ... joyously unboring' Sunday Times Friends do it, strangers do it and so do chimpanzees - and it's not just deeply embedded in our history and culture, it may even be written in our DNA. The humble handshake, it turns out, has a rich and surprising history. So let's join palaeoanthropologist Ella Al-Shamahi as she embarks on a funny and fascinating voyage of discovery - from the handshake's origins (at least seven million years ago) all the way to its sudden disappearance in March 2020. Drawing on new research, anthropological insights and first-hand experience, she'll reveal how this most friendly of gestures has played a role in everything from meetings with uncontacted tribes to political assassinations - and what it tells us about the enduring power of human contact. Because the story of the handshake ... is far from over.

At a time when institutional philosophy is imperiled, the programs in this volume point towards new directions being forged to bring the benefits of doing philosophy to more people. This volume will be of particular interest to those interested in pre-college philosophy, and it is intended for philosophy professors, graduate students in philosophy or education, and philosophy teachers in pre-college settings. 'Intentional Disruption: Expanding Access to Philosophy' will also be helpful to school administrators, parents and philosophy camps instructors.

The specter of early twentieth-century eugenics—with its goal of preventing the “unfit” from reproducing through forced sterilization—still haunts us in this era of genetic engineering. Conrad B. Quintyn, an associate professor of biological anthropology at Bloomsburg University, Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, calls this the new eugenics era because geneticists have begun to explore ways to prevent and repair defective genes in all humans. In this book, he considers whether genetic engineering will exacerbate social injustices and/or lead to a public safety issue. For instance, in 2012, virologists in the U.S. and the Netherlands genetically engineered avian (bird) flu to be more transmissible between mammals. These scientists argued that virus transmission between mammals enables us to make vaccines to prevent pandemics. They never considered what would happen if the virus accidentally escaped the laboratory. Meanwhile, some scientists are experimenting with “designer babies,” altering genes to remove diseases and even programming certain traits. Join the author as he considers whether scientists are playing God as well as the risks we face by altering genetics in The New Eugenics.

Over the past forty years, it has produced medical advances at an electrifying rate. As the COVID-19 pandemic emerged, hundreds of companies quickly pivoted to combating the virus. The contributors to this book offer inside views of this seminal industry, with historical and personal perspectives, lessons learned, and looks into the future. Diverse as these leaders are, they are united by their conviction that science and medicine will light humanity’s way to greater health and longevity.

"Despite enormous advances in medical science and public health education over the last century, access to health care remains a dominant issue in American life. U.S. health care is often hailed as the best in the world, yet the public health emergencies of today very often echo the public health emergencies of yesterday: the Great Influenza Pandemic of 1918-19 and COVID-19; the displacement of the Dust Bowl and the havoc of Hurricane Maria; the Reagan administration's antipathy toward the AIDS epidemic and the lack of accountability during the water crisis in Flint, Michigan"--

“I CAN’T BREATHE!” These were the last words of more than a half-million people in America who contracted the deadly Coronavirus. Ironically, they were also among the last words of Mr. George Floyd, an African-American man murdered by Derek Chauvin, a white police officer who knelt on Mr. Floyd’s neck for eight minutes and forty-six seconds. Was it merely a coincidence that these same words were uttered in both instances? Was there a connection on some deeper, abstract level that should have served as a wake-up call for the United States of America? In 2020, two deadly viruses swept the nation: a new virus known as “COVID-19” and one centuries-old virus called “Racism.” The Fight of My Life: The Coronavirus: A Dance with the Devil is an inspirational tale of one man’s fight and path to victory over two invisible and deadly enemies.
