Tipping Point the Coming Weather Crisis is a forecast of a coming climate change that puts us in the beginning of a new ice age in just a few years. A change that affects millions. I go on to discuss how changes in climate have affected man in the past such as: glaciers, ice ages, floods, and volcanic eruptions. I describe why these things happened and the mechanics behind them in words and graphics that are easy to understand. Further discuss how man has been modifying the climate of the world for 10,000 years, since we started using fire. I talk of global warming and blame clean burning fuels and environmentalists for the current rise in temperature. I cover how sea level changes created the Garden of Eden, how this would of flooded and affected Noah, and how volcanic eruptions are really the source of legends about fire breathing dragons. I go on to discuss how climate change gave us the Garden of Eden and in the end took it away. It was indeed a safe and bountiful land that was a paradise and cradle for a fledgling mankind for more than 70,000 years. But in the end it was a deathtrap.In the past abrupt weather changes have occurred when conditions existed almost exactly like they are today. Data glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica show us the transition into an Ice Age come at the end of warm periods. I do hope that I am wrong, but don't think so.

BREAKING NEWS: Banks Fined $1.9 Billion by Regulators for Rigging Lending Rates (and 30 more being investigated.)UBS: Switzerland's biggest bank, and Barclays Bank were found guilty and ordered to pay $1.9 billion to U.S., U.K. and Swiss regulators for trying to rig global interest rates. –Bloomberg News, December 21, 2012. Unethical behavior by the world's leading banking institutions contributed to the $10 trillion global financial meltdown. But there is so much more to this historic story… The International Financial Crisis: 2007–2010: TIPPING POINTS A ground-breaking book by Dr Philip Gordon, Ph.D detailing the origins, impacts and complexity of the International Financial Crisis. Dr Gordon provides a unique perspective on the dynamics of this worldwide “economic epidemic” and an innovative Tipping Point Theory methodology for analyzing (and predicting) global events, that are in many ways, influenced by media. Dr Philip Gordon, Ph.D was awarded his doctorate (with honors) from the Centre d'Etudes Diplomatiques et Strategigues (CEDS) - Paris, France and MS while on a full-fellowship from Johns Hopkins University - Baltimore, Maryland. Dr. Gordon has published many books and articles on International Theory and Relations (Blue Matrix Publications) and currently lives in Burgundy, France with his wife and two sons. Review Comments:"The genius of the formulation of Tipping Point Theory is that it takes explicit account of the role of social media and the internet at facilitating bifurcations and promoting dynamical instability. In effect, we have trimmed a few feet of tail off the kite. As a reader, I was informed and educated as to the factors which conspire to influence stability / instability in complex social systems. …the book does a good job of making sense of past bifurcations and dynamical instabilities, namely political instability, our perception of global climate change, and international economic crises…My compliments on a truly insightful Media Tipping Points." -Prof. Dr.(med.) Peter S. Geissler, A.B., B.S., M.S., M.Phil., Ph.D. (Yale)M.A., M.Eng., M.S., Ph.D., M.S., M.D., M.Phil.(Cantab) "The application of the tipping point theory qualitative ratio analysis to media and global events, particularly the financial crisis, is a fascinating one." -Dr. Serge Besanger, PhD Expert, International Monetary Fund“…very interesting application (of the Tipping Point Theory)…potential opportunity for predicting other global events, i.e.: Egyptian crisis and perhaps, even terrorism activities.”-Dr. Adam AJLANI, PhDProfessor, Sciences Politic and Political Consultant, France TV1“…a mass undertaking (very motivated) of how (we) as a society can become aware of future global events. Excellent!”-Dr. Derek EL ZEIN, PhDProfessor, Avocat, Expert: Communications“…very innovative approach to modeling three very complex studies for comparison. Well-suited for similar types of analysis.”-Dr. Emmanuel CAULIER, PhDProfessor and Expert: International Political Relations, Avocat“A truly fascinating book that (teaches) a whole new way of thinking about major events and how the media can influence them. - Being a political junkie I was heavily into the media coverage of the global financial melt-down both via TV and the blogosphere…I now find myself looking for the tipping points and stickiness factors as other key events unfold. Usually, I have trouble reading, theoretical books but this one was an easy read and if you want supporting data then the references are there. This could become a solid reference for those in the media who truly want to understand what they are reporting. Highly recommended and I look forward to Dr. Gordon's ongoing analysis of (future) events.”-Dr. Ralph Moorhouse, Ph.D. Political junkie, Expert: natural polymers for industries

Stefano Guzzini's study offers an understanding of the evolution of the realist tradition within International Relations and International Political Economy. It sees the realist tradition not as a school of thought with a static set of fixed principles, but as a repeatedly failed attempt to turn the rules of European diplomacy into the laws of a US social science. Realism in International Relations and International Political Economy concentrates on the evolution of a leading school of thought, its critiques and its institutional environment. As such it will provide an invaluable basis to anyone studying international relations theory.

The financial crisis of 2007–10 has presented a number of key policy challenges for those concerned with the long-term stability of the euro area. It has shown that price stability as provided by the European Central Bank is not enough to guarantee financial stability, and exposed fault lines in governance and deficiencies in the architecture of the financial supervisory and regulatory framework. This book addresses these and other issues, including why the crisis affected some countries more than others, whether the euro is still attractive for new EU states, and what policy changes and structural reforms, both macro and micro, should be undertaken to ensure its future viability. Written by a team of leading academic and central bank economists, the book also includes chapters on the cross-country incidence of the crisis, the Irish crisis and ECB monetary policy during the crisis, and studies on Spain, the Baltics, Slovakia and Slovenia.

Phenomenology and existentialism transformed understanding and experience of the Twentieth Century to their core. They had strikingly different inspirations and yet the two waves of thought became merged as both movements flourished. The present collection of research devoted to these movements and their unfolding interaction is now especially revealing. The studies in this first volume to be followed by two succeeding ones, range from the predecessors of existentialism – Kierkegaard/Jean Wahl, Nietzsche, to the work of its adherents – Shestov, Berdyaev, Unamuno, Blondel, Blumenberg, Heidegger and Mamardashvili, Dufrenne and Merleau-Ponty to existentialism’s congruence with Christianity or with atheism. Among the leading Husserlian insights are treated essence and experience, the place of questioning, ethics and intentionality, temporality and passivity and the life world. The following book will uncover the perennial concerns guiding the wondrous interplay of these two inspirational sources.
