The Triumph of Doubt

release date: Jan 02, 2020
The Triumph of Doubt
Well-heeled American corporations have long had a financial stake in undermining scientific consensus and manufacturing uncertainty. In The Triumph of Doubt, former Obama and Clinton official David Michaels details how corrupt science becomes public policy -- and where it's happening today. Opioids. Concussions. Obesity. Climate Change. America is a country of everyday crises -- big, long-spanning problems that persist despite their toll on the country's health. And for every case of government inaction on one of these issues, there is a set of familiar, doubtful refrains: The science is unclear. The data are inconclusive. Regulation is unjustified. It's a slippery slope. Is it? The Triumph of Doubt traces the ascendance of science-for-hire in American life and government, from its origins in the tobacco industry in the 1950s to its current manifestations across government, public policy, and even professional sports. Amid fraught conversations of "alternative facts" and "truth decay," The Triumph of Doubt wields its unprecedented access to shine a light on the machinations and scope of manipulated science in American society. It is an urgent, revelatory work, one that promises to reorient conversations around science and the public good for the foreseeable future.

Life Is Very Simple, But We Insist on Making It Complicated

release date: Sep 23, 2014
Life Is Very Simple, But We Insist on Making It Complicated
The meaning of life is a philosophical question concerning the significance of life or existence in general. It can also be expressed in different forms, such as "Why are we here?", "What is life all about?", and "What is the purpose of existence?" It has been the subject of much philosophical, scientific, and theological speculation throughout history. There have been a large number of proposed answers to these questions from many different cultural and ideological backgrounds. The meaning of life is in the philosophical and religious conceptions of existence, social ties, consciousness, and happiness, and borders on many other issues, such as symbolic meaning, ontology, value, purpose, ethics, good and evil, free will, and the existence of one or multiple gods, conceptions of God, the soul, and the afterlife. Scientific contributions focus primarily on describing related empirical facts about the universe, exploring the context and parameters concerning the 'how' of life. Science also studies and can provide recommendations for the pursuit of well-being and a related conception of morality. Most of us are searching for happiness or "the meaning of life." This is a book of quotations that get some perspective on life and what our purpose here is. Hear from some famous artists, businessmen, rappers, singers, politicians, athletes, authors, philosophers, and many more. These are some one or two liners that might give you the guidance you need to make it through those tough times. These gives you some philosophical and psychological incite on what our purpose in this life may be.

The Dream Antilles

release date: Jun 01, 2005
The Dream Antilles
David Seth Michaels's magical, utopian novel The Dream Antilles explores desde Desdemona, a secret Caribbean island that submerges at each high tide. For decades, the locals have lived on the island in tree houses. With humor, wit, compassion, and spirit, they ward off repeated threats to their privacy from the outside world, even as they integrate two newcomers into their community who themselves could easily betray the island's secrets. The island's secrets are many. Its existence, location, and massive disinformation campaign, combined with its long and mysterious connections with a pod of dolphins and the Great Mother turtle, make desde Desdemona vulnerable to destruction if discovered. The island also has an unusual relationship with time. But it is the community of traditional plant healers and the magical teachings of Swamiji, its trickster spiritual teacher, that truly must be safeguarded. The Dream Antilles stands in delightful and hopeful contrast to the blandness and predictability of the everyday world. You will return to the island of desde Desdemona for refreshment over and over again.

NASA
Since NASA first sent men to the moon in the summer of 1969 there have been debates on what to do next. Stuck with a tight budget, a limited horizon and a skeptical public, NASA is hemmed in by problems that have been decades in the making. The National Research Council said recently that the space agency had experienced "considerable programmatic turbulence" in the past decade or so, "with frequent and dramatic changes in program goals and mission plans in response to changes in national policies." Resolving those problems will take a great deal of imagination and a lot more cash. Join CQ Roll Call, a trusted choice of political analysis and reporting since 1945, in a look at what the agency faces and Congress' part in its future.
