We are at our human best when we give and forgive.But we live in a world in which it makes little sense to do either one. In our increasingly graceless culture, where can we find the motivation to give? And how do we learn to forgive when forgiving seems counterintuitive or even futile? A deeply personal yet profoundly thoughtful book, Free of Charge explores these questions¬ – and the further questions to which they give rise – in light of God’s generosity and Christ’s sacrifice for us. Miroslav Volf draws from popular culture as well as from a wealth of literary and theological sources, weaving his rich reflections around the sturdy frame of Paul’s vision of God’s grace and Martin Luther’s interpretation of that vision. Blending the best of theology and spirituality, he encourages us to echo in our own lives God’s generous giving and forgiving. A fresh examination of two practices at the heart of the Christian faith¬ – giving and forgiving¬ – the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lenten study book for 2006 is at the same time an introduction to Christianity. Even more, it is a compelling invitation to Christian faith as a way of life.“Miroslav Volf, one of the most celebrated theologians of our day, offers us a unique interweaving of intense reflection, vivid and painfully personal stories and sheer celebration of the giving God ... I cannot remember having read a better account of what it means to say that Jesus suffered for us in our place.”– Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury

Synopsis According to Yogi Berra "You can sometimes see a lot just by looking". Even a casual observation of everyday life and current events may well reveal that the state of our nation and indeed the world is increasingly fraught with stress, rapidly deteriorating and costly health, angst, agony and even depression. "Be In Charge (of Yourself and Your Health), It’s Free of Charge" addresses with the utmost if not unprecedented simplicity what concerns and alarms most everybody on the planet ( maybe even more so in the US, Canada and the EU.) which is Human Health & Stress. It provides universal appeal, accessibility, and self empowerment for the general reader while also uniquely providing total independence of all external and/or intangible references and/or directives. Health and stress are practically everybody's prime and urgent concern. This is probably an understated understatement Martial the first century AD Roman poet was right on when he quite unequivocally stated "Life Is Not Living, But Living In Health" (non est vivere sed vaslere vita est). Myriad published recommendations to combat ill health and stress, fall mainly in the following categories: Medical Scientific Religious Abstract Esoteric Spiritual Fads (diets, fitness, meditation etc.) Some recommendations may be dogmatic and/or intimidating, but all operate under the illusion of one size fits all, or as culturally and commonly expressed "Everybody does it" or "It happens to everybody" This illusion is also hammered in holistically by relentless advertising. Most existing HEALTH and STRESS related PUBLICATIONS are BASED ON DOGMA and/or intimidation "pushed" strictly by AUTHOR CREDENTIALS, and/or FAME and NOTORIETY. They also embrace the one size fits all myth or rather oxymoron and promote fads often contradictory. As anyone may observe the state of our physical and mental health leaves a lot to be desired, to say the least, in spite of occasional short term and at times Pyrrhic victories. "Be In Charge (of Yourself and Your Health), It’s Free of Charge" offers a uniquely different and tangible paradigm. It contains no dogma be it religious, ideological, spiritual or other. Nor is it abstract, moralising or judgmental. It merely reminds readers of their uniqueness, their inherent and self evident free will/power of choice, which combined with their innate common sense can uniquely deal with their health and stress concerns. This reminder is tangible, self evident, accessible by most all, and anybody can identify with it individually. The reader is in the driver's seat, not some guru with myriad lists of to do's, none of which is individualised. The reader alone gets to choose. Simply put, you do not have to do anything, only what you choose to, since choice has always been yours, is always yours, will always be yours, and never, never anybody else's. Furthermore it does not prescribe/dictate, recommend or promote products, diets exercises, systems, procedures, and treatments, nor any literature dealing in "what to do, when and how". It establishes with Aristotelian sequential logic and common sense that by Being In Charge Of One's Self, stress and the resulting self contradictions and internal conflicts may be neutralised. Once In Charge Of One's Self, the next logical step is the option to take Charge Of One's Health and validate the ancient Greek principle of "Healthy Mind in a Healthy Body". This ancient principle is being constantly reconfirmed by medical science. . "Be In Charge (of Yourself and Your Health), It’s Free of Charge”, first establishes tangibly the absolute uniqueness of each human being while debunking the one size fits all myth. It next reminds all of the self evident, that all the "children" of the Big Bang, A.K.A. human beings, are inherently equipped with the gift of discrimination, and the absolute power of choice/free will. Once individual uniqueness and the absolute power of choice and its natural consequences are acknowledged and embraced, if so chosen, the result is inevitably taking charge of one's self. Consequently one can take charge of one's health as well, while realising that one is the sole chief architect in charge of one's health. After all Health Is Not Wealth, It Is Everything. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this book is the tangible presentation with which most all readers can identify with. It is based on widely available common knowledge/information be it historical and/or scientific, observations available to most if not all, as well as basic down to earth common sense and logic with which most everyone can identify with. All presented in another way from a fresh paradigm. IT fully IDENTIFIES, addresses, and blends WITH the most significant CONTEMPORARY AND CURRENT EVENTS and concerns, both national and international WITH A TOUCH OF HUMOUR HERE AND THERE... Another quite exceptional if not unique angle of this book, is that it is entirely fad proof and that it will inherently remain current while it keeps on being re enforced almost daily by events, findings, and trends constantly recorded by all media, and for the foreseeable longer range future. "Be In Charge, It’s Free of Charge" is a natural topic for talk radio and television interviews, and talk shows. It is also ideal for seminars and speeches to associations, clubs, etc. It can address any audience, from business, family, teenagers, to senior citizens. to AARP etc. The author can personally contribute in spreading the message of the book, having extensive experience in public speeches, presentations, interviews (with print, radio and TV media) multi-culturally and internationally, and is able to personally illustrate the validity of the message of the book.

Development of silicon based electronics have revolutionized our every day life during the last five decades. Nowadays silicon based devices operate close to their theoretical limits that is becoming a bottleneck for further progress. In particular, for the growing field of high frequency and high power electronics, silicon cannot offer the required properties. Development of materials capable of providing high current densities, carrier mobilities and high breakdown fields is crucial for further progress in state of the art electronics. Epitaxial graphene grown on semi-insulating silicon carbide substrates has a high potential to be integrated in current planar device technologies. High electron mobilities and sheet carrier densities make graphene extremely attractive for high frequency analog applications. One of the remaining challenges is the interaction of epitaxial graphene with the substrate. Typically, much lower free charge carrier mobilities, compared to free standing graphene, and doping, due to charge transfer from the substrate, is reported. Thus, a good understanding of the intrinsic free charge carriers properties and the factors affecting them is very important for further development of epitaxial graphene. Group III-nitrides have been extensively studied and already have proven their high efficiency as light emitting diodes for short wavelengths. High carrier mobilities and breakdown electric fields were demonstrated for group III-nitrides, making them attractive for high frequency and high power applications. Currently, In-rich InGaN alloys and AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility structures are of high interest for the research community due to open fundamental questions such as free charge carrier properties at high temperatures and wavefunction hybridization in AlGaN/GaN heterostructures. Electrical characterization techniques, commonly used for the determination of free charge carrier properties, require good ohmic and Schottky contacts, which in certain cases can be difficult to achieve. Access to electrical properties of buried conductive channels in multilayered structures requires modification of samples and good knowledge of the electrical properties of all electrical junctions within the structure. Moreover, the use of contacts to electrically characterize two-dimensional electronic materials, such as graphene, can alter their intrinsic properties. Furthermore, the determination of effective mass parameters commonly employs cyclotron resonance and Shubnikov-de Haas oscillations measurements, which require long scattering times of free charge carriers, high magnetic fields and low temperatures. The optical Hall effect is an external magnetic-field induced birefringence of conductive layers due to the free charge carriers interaction with long-wavelength electromagnetic waves under the influence of the Lorentz force. The optical Hall effect can be measured by generalized ellipsometry and provides a powerful method for the determination of free charge carrier properties in a non-destructive and contactless manner. The optical Hall effect measurements can provide quantitative information about free charge carrier type, concentration, mobility and effective mass parameters at temperatures ranging from few kelvins to room temperature and above. It further allows to differentiate the free charge carrier properties of individual layers in multilayer samples. The employment of a backside cavity for transparent samples can enhance the optical Hall effect and allows to access free charge carrier properties at relatively low magnetic fields using permanent magnet. The optical Hall effect measurements at mid-infrared spectral range can be used to probe quantum mechanical phenomena such as Landau levels in graphene. The magnetic field dependence of the inter-Landau level transition energies and optical polarization selection rules provide information about coupling properties between graphene layers and the electronic band structure. Measurement of the optical Hall effect by generalized ellipsometry is an indirect technique requiring subsequent data analysis. Parameterized optical models are fitted to match experimentally measured ellipsometric spectra by varying physically significant model parameters. Analysis of the generalized ellipsometry data at long wavelengths for samples containing free charge carriers by optical models based on the classical Drude formulation, augmented with an external magnetic field contribution, allows to extract carrier concentration, mobility and effective mass parameters. The development of the integrated FIR and THz frequency-domain ellipsometer at the Terahertz Materials Analysis Center in Linköping University was part of the graduate studies presented in this dissertation. The THz ellipsometer capabilities are demonstrated by determination of Si and sapphire optical constants, and free charge carrier properties of two-dimensional electron gas in GaN-based high electron mobility transistor structures. The THz ellipsometry is further shown to be capable of determining free charge carrier properties and following their changes upon variation of ambient conditions in atomically thin layers with an example of epitaxial graphene. A potential of the THz OHE with the cavity enhancement (THz-CE-OHE) for determination of the free charge carrier properties in atomically thin layers were demonstrated by the measurements of the carrier properties in monolayer and multilayer epitaxial graphene on Si-face 4H-SiC. The data analysis revealed p-type doping for monolayer graphene with a carrier density in the low 1012 cm-2 range and a carrier mobility of 1550 cm2V-1s-1. For the multilayer graphene, n-type doping with a carrier density in the low 1013 cm-2 range, a mobility of 470 cm2V-1s-1 and an effective mass of (0.14 ± 0.03)m0 were extracted. Different type of doping among monolayer and multilayer graphene is explained as a result of different hydrophobicity among samples. Further, we have employed THz-CE-OHE to determine for the first time anisotropic mobility parameter in quasi-free-standing bilayer epitaxial graphene induced by step-like surface morphology of 4H-SiC. Correlation of atomic force microscopy, Raman scattering spectroscopy, scanning probe Kelvin probe microscopy, low energy electron microscopy and diffraction analysis allows us to investigate the possible scattering mechanisms and suggests that anisotropic mobility is induced by varying local mobility parameter due to interaction between graphene and underlaying substrate. The origin of the layers decoupling in multilayer graphene on C-face 4H-SiC was studied by MIR-OHE, transmission electron microscopy and electron energy loss spectroscopy. The results revealed the decoupling of the layers induced by the increased interlayer spacing which is attributed to the Si atoms trapped between graphene layers. MIR ellipsometry and MIR-OHE measurements were employed to determine the electron effective mass in a wurtzite In0.33Ga0.67N epitaxial layer. The data analysis revealed the effective mass parameters parallel and perpendicular to the c-axis which can be considered as equal within sensitivity of our measurements. The determined effective mass is consistent with linear dependence on the In content. Analysis of the free charge carrier properties in AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility structures with modified interfaces showed that AlGaN/GaN interface structure has a significant effect on the mobility parameter. A sample with a sharp interface layers exhibits a record mobility of 2332 ± 73 cm2V-1s-1. The determined effective mass parameters showed an increase compared to the bulk GaN value, which is attributed to the penetration of the electron wavefunction into the AlGaN barrier layer. Temperature dependence of free charge carrier properties in GaN-based high electron mobility transistor structures with AlGaN and InAlN barrier layers were measured by terahertz optical Hall effect technique in a temperature range from 7.2 K to 398 K. The results revealed strong changes in the effective mass and mobility parameters. At temperatures below 57 K very high carrier mobility parameters above 20000 cm2V-1s-1 for AlGaN-barrier sample and much lower mobilities of ~ 5000 cm2V-1s-1 for InAlN-barrier sample were obtained. At low temperatures the effective mass parameters for both samples are very similar to bulk GaN value, while at temperatures above 131 K effective mass shows a strong increase with temperature. The effective masses of 0.344 m0 (@370 K) and 0.439 m0 (@398 K) were obtained for AlGaN- and InAlN-barrier samples, respectively. We discussed the possible origins of effective mass enhancement in high electron mobility transistor structures.

In community after community, pro bono and student-run health clinics have sprung up over the past 30 years, providing critically needed care to medically underserved populations. Free Clinics is a mosaic formed by accounts of such clinics around the United States. These wide-ranging narratives—from urban to rural, from primary care to behavioral health care—provide examples that will assist other communities seeking to find the model that best fits their needs. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act has improved access to health care for many Americans, but millions remain and will remain uninsured or underinsured. Free clinics provide non-emergency care to those in need. Nationwide, professionals can be found offering volunteer services at these clinics. Contributors to this volume—typically people with personal familiarity (as clinicians or area residents) with the clinics they write about—cover a variety of topics, including a review of the literature, data-driven accounts of clinic usage, and ethical guidelines for student-run clinics. They describe the motivations of clinic staff, the day-to-day work of a family nurse practitioner working in clinics and teaching at a university, the challenges and rewards of providing health care for homeless people, and more. Student-run clinics are the topic of the second section: in addition to providing care to a small subset of those in need, student-run clinics are an important venue for training future clinicians and helping the seeds of altruism with which many enter their professions to germinate. Free Clinics will be useful to policymakers, students and faculty in public health and health policy programs, and clinicians and students who are embarking on launching new clinics.

This work reveals what has been hidden for 3000 years that has already been given us by King Solomon when the Archetype Queen of Sheba went to GET this Name of the God of Israel for which she paid about R5,93 Billion in Gold @ $700/oz in 2006. It is the Ancient PRIMORDIAL religion that is ONE and was before where Judaism and Christianity and Islam was ONE body and One religion worshipping the One and Only God and it unlocks the SECRET, Hidden and LOST WORD of all Secret societies who knows not that they know not. In this work I hand you the KEY to unlock the SEPHER YETSIRA, the CABBALA, the TREE of LIFE and the Etz Chayyim in essence and the Knowledge between GOOD and EVIL, Life and Death, Right and Wrong. Here you get the 296, the 345 of Pythagoras, the 358 and other mystic numbers that cannot have any meaning to the Flatline PhDs where the worthies have now received it already in the Ancient Science of the Gematria, (Haroof-e-Abjad) and the ELS of professor Eliyahu Rips to assist us in fi nding ever greater TRUTHS hidden within scripture for which discovery Dr Rashad Khalifa was KILLED on a Fatwa in 1990 when translating the Quran into English. In this work is given the essence of Gnosticism in math and science within the Universal Absolute with PROOF of this NAME of God that is OVER IT ALL so that the Curse of God on all Priests in Malachi 2 may be lifted to GLORIFY His Name and Bow down to it as in Phil 2:9. I am the WAY, the LIFE, the VINE and the DOOR as the Alpha and the Omega as the ONE and the NINE in 19 as WAHD that is Over it all in sura 74:30. The One and the Only NAME that can ever set us FREE to fl y into the Light without the mythical burning of Icharus wings in the TRUTH of God that we too can BECOME what we are as ONE with HIM in John 17:22

The prevailing orthodoxy in brain science is that since physical laws govern our physical brains, physical laws therefore govern our behaviour and even our conscious selves. Free will is meaningless, goes the mantra; we live in a 'determined' world. Not so, argues the renowned neuroscientist Michael S. Gazzaniga as he explains how the mind, 'constrains' the brain just as cars are constrained by the traffic they create. Writing with what Steven Pinker has called 'his trademark wit and lack of pretension,' Gazzaniga ranges across neuroscience, psychology and ethics to show how incorrect it is to blame our brains for our behaviour. Even given the latest insights into the physical mechanisms of the mind, he explains, we are responsible agents who should be held accountable for our actions, because responsibility is found in how people interact, not in brains. An extraordinary book, combining a light touch with profound implications, Who's in Charge? is a lasting contribution from one of the leading thinkers of our time.
