These divisions are currently being addressed solely by revivalist ideologies and populist megafigures--we're in the age of Brexit, President Donald Trump, and the return of the far right in Germany. And unless we do something now, the gap between the promises of prosperity for all that capitalism once offered and the crisis of contempt we find ourselves in will only grow wider, faster.
Paul Collier's workable solution is in the center: we have no time for moral or intellectual superiority on either side of the political spectrum, he argues, and no shiny new economic theory is going to save us this time. Drawing on the wisdom of some of the world's most distinguished social scientists, Collier charts an agenda of empowerment to show us how to save capitalism from itself--eschewing the ideological baggage of the twentieth century and instead crafting practical policy grounded in communitarian ethics to address the rapid rise in inequality that will either end us or propel us into an entirely new economic age.
Future-Proofing the News by Kathleen A. H26 News coverage is often described as the first draft of history. From the publication in of the first American newspaper, Publick Occurrences, to the latest tweet, news has been disseminated to inform its audience about what is going on in the world. But the preservation of news content has had it technological, legal, and organizational challenges. Over the centuries, as new means of finding, producing, and distributing news were developed, the methods used to ensure future generations' access changed, and new challenges for news content preservation arose.

This book covers the history of news preservation or lack thereof , the decisions that helped ensure or doom its preservation, and the unique preservation issues created by each new form of media. All but one copy of Publick Occurrences were destroyed by decree. The wood pulp-based newsprint used for later newspapers crumbles to dust. Early microfilm disintegrates to acid, and decades of microfilmed newspapers have already dissolved in their storage drawers.
Early radio and television newscasts were rarely captured, and when they were, the technological formats for accessing the tapes have lone been superseded. Sounds and images stored on audio- and videotapes fade and become unreadable. The early years of web publication by news organizations were lost by changes in publishing platforms and a false security that everything on the Internet lives forever.
In fifty or a hundred years, what will we be able to retrieve from today's news output? How will we tell the story of this time and place?

Will we have better access to news produced in than news produced in ? These are some of the questions Future-Proofing the News aims to answer. We've even delegated life-and-death decisions to algorithms--decisions once made by doctors, pilots, and judges. In [his new book], Kartik Hosanagar surveys the brave new world of algorithmic decision-making and reveals the potentially dangerous biases they can give rise to as they increasingly run our lives. He makes the compelling case that we need to arm ourselves with a better, deeper, more nuanced understanding of the phenomenon of algorithmic thinking.
And he gives us a route in, pointing out that algorithms often think a lot like their creators--that is, like you and me. Hosanagar draws on his own experiences designing algorithms professionally, as well as on examples from history, computer science, and psychology, to explore how algorithms work and why they occasionally go rogue, what drives our trust in them, and the many ramifications of algorithmic decision making.
He examines episodes like the fatal accidents of self-driving cars; Microsoft's chat-bot Tay, which was designed to converse on social media like a teenage girl, but instead turned sexist and racist; and even our own common, and often frustrating, experiences on services like Netflix and Amazon.

A Human's Guide to Machine Intelligence is an entertaining and provocative look at one of the most important developments of our time and is a practical user's guide to this first wave of practical artificial intelligence. P56 L88 Documents the story of the infamous nineteenth-century Supreme Court ruling in favor of segregation, tracing the half-century of history that shaped the ruling and the reverberations that are still being felt today.
R The author posits that successful democracies require balance between competitive markets, honest governments and local communities. Currently, as markets scale up, states scale up too; Rajan offers an alternative: strengthening local communities. H34 A manifesto for a truly secular faith that speaks eloquently to both believers and agnostics alike. The philosopher and critic Martin Hagglund believes that we need a new way of thinking about faith.
In contrast to the traditional religious faith in eternity, he proposes a secular faith in the value of living in time. He argues that the concept of an eternal heaven actually renders our mortal life meaningless since it assumes that our ultimate aims should be to escape it.
Simplicity: Ideals of Practice in Mathematics and the Arts
Engaging writers and thinkers as diverse as C. Lewis, Kierkegaard, St. Augustine, Nietzsche, Martin Luther, and even Karl Ove Knausgaard, Hagglund provides not only a critique of religious ideals, but also a positive, alternative understanding of the beliefs and values that can motivate us to live lives of meaning in the here and now"-- Provided by publisher. W55 U Z93 They were collaborators, literary gadflies, and champions of the common people.
They were the leading lights of the Harlem Renaissance. They traveled together in Hurston's dilapidated car through the rural South collecting folklore, worked on the play Mule Bone, and wrote scores of loving letters. They even had the same patron: Charlotte Osgood Mason, a wealthy white woman who insisted on being called 'Godmother. Was the split inevitable when Hughes decided to be financially independent of his patron? Was Hurston jealous of the young woman employed as their typist?
Or was the rupture over the authorship of Mule Bone? Yuval Taylor answers these questions while illuminating Hurston's and Hughes's lives, work, competitiveness, and ambition, uncovering little-known details. C68 The science journalist draws on ancient food traditions and the latest research on healthy gut maintenance to explain the role of the microbiome and how to adapt a diet to promote optimal microbiome balance.
Meet the trillion microorganisms that keep us healthy--and the traditional foods that nourish them.
Probiotic yogurt and other "gut-friendly" foods line supermarket shelves. But what's the best way to feed our all-important microbiome--and what exactly is a microbiome, anyway? Science journalist Katherine Harmon Courage investigates these questions, presenting a deep dive into the ancient and artisanal foods that feed a healthy gut, as well as the cutting-edge science that's catching up to these time-honored traditions. Civility Lost by George A.
G62 E85 B By the turn of the seventeenth century, the temperature had plummeted so drastically that Mediterranean harbors were covered with ice, birds were dropping frozen out of the sky, and enterprising Londoners erected semipermanent frost fairs on a frozen Thames--with bustling kiosks, taverns, and even brothels. Chronicling the dramatic turmoil and the long-lasting consequences of this 'Little Ice Age,' best-selling historian Philipp Blom reveals how a new, radically altered Europe emerged out of environmental cataclysm. Showing how the drastic weather patterns decimated entire harvests across the European continent, [this book] describes how populations fled the starvation and civil unrest in the countryside to bourgeoning urban centers, where the emergence of early capitalistic markets sparked the transformation of European cities.
The political and cultural ramifications were no less drastic. Moving from political to intellectual events and to the arts, Blom evokes the era's most exquisite paintings, like Hendrick Avercamp's surreal depiction of an idyllic community on the ice in Winter Landscape, as well as the revolutionary ideas of Enlightenment figures, who, like Montaigne in his Essais, imagined novel worldviews to cope with what seemed like nature's vicious scourge against humankind.
Now, as we face a climate crisis of our own, Blom offers exigent ways of understanding this history of the 'Little Ice Age' in light of our own society's fraught relationship with the environment. Ultimately, [this book] offers an essential parable of how societies struggle to survive when violent environmental changes threaten the very fabric of their civilization. More Than a Game by David K.
Wiggins Call Number: GV W It discusses the varied experiences of African Americans in sport and how their participation has both reflected and changed views of race" -- Provided by publisher. J64 While no one wants to experience loss, there is tremendous learning to be had from grieving-whether from the loss of a job, loved one, a home, or one's own hopes and dreams. This book views loss and change during midlife as "fertilizer" for new dreams. Many stories of loss show how grieving can evolve into a period of new beginnings.
I48 An intelligent and authoritative history of opium--a drug that has both healed and harmed since the beginning of civilization. Poppy tears, opium, heroin, fentanyl: humankind has been in thrall to the "Milk of Paradise" for millennia. The latex of papaver somniferum is a bringer of sleep, of pleasurable lethargy, of relief from pain--and hugely addictive. A commodity without rival, it is renewable, easy to extract, transport, and refine, and subject to an insatiable global demand. No other substance in the world is as simple to produce or as profitable.
It is the basis of a gargantuan industry built upon a shady underworld, but ultimately it is an agricultural product that lives many lives before it reaches the branded blister packet, the intravenous drip, or the scorched and filthy spoon. Many of us will end our lives dependent on it. In Milk of Paradise, acclaimed cultural historian Lucy Inglis takes readers on an epic journey from ancient Mesopotamia to modern America and Afghanistan, from Sanskrit to pop, from poppy tears to smack, from morphine to today's synthetic opiates.
It is a tale of addiction, trade, crime, sex, war, literature, medicine, and, above all, money. And, as this ambitious, wide-ranging, and compelling account vividly shows, the history of opium is our history and it speaks to us of who we are.
S4 R63 H3 C87 There are zombies among us! From the rotting hordes of TV's 'The Walking Dead' to the blockbuster nightmare of '28 days later', our popular culture is overrun with the ravenous undead. But where do these strange creatures come from? In this book, artist and writer John Cussans tracks the zombie from Hollywood back to its origins in the voodoo folklore of Haiti. Fidel Castro is dead. Donald Trump is in the White House. And to most outsiders, the fate of Cuba has never been more uncertain.
But those who look close enough realize the blueprints for the island's next revolution may be etched in plain view.
This is Cuba begins in the summer of when CNN offers David Ariosto, a wide-eyed, inexperienced journalist, the chance of a lifetime--a two-year assignment in Havana. Ariosto moves to Cuba with visions of covering the island in the fashion of such literary legends as Graham Greene and Ernest Hemingway.
