A Harvard-trained obstetrician-gynecologist, prominent blogger, and author of the classic How Your Baby Is Born delivers a timely, important, and sure to be headline-making expose that shines a light on the natural parenting movement and the multimillion-dollar industry behind it. The natural parenting movement praises the virtues of birth without medical interference, staunchly advocates breastfeeding for all mothers, and hails attachment parenting. Once the exclusive province of the alternative lifestyle, natural parenting has gone mainstream, becoming a lucrative big business today. But those who do not subscribe to this method are often made to feel as if they are doing their children harm. Dr. Amy Tuteur understands their apprehensions. “Parenting quickly feels synonymous with guilt. And of late, there is no bigger arena for this pervasive guilt than childbirth.” As a medical professional with a long career in obstetrics and gynecology and as the mother of four children, Tuteur is no stranger to the insurmountable pressures and subsequent feelings of blame and self-condemnation that mothers experience during their children’s early years. The natural parenting movement, she contends, is not helping them raise their children better. Instead, it capitalizes on their uncertainty, manipulating parents when they are most vulnerable. In Push Back, she chronicles the movement’s history from its roots to its modern practices, incorporating her own experiences as a mother and successful OB-GYN with original research on the latest in childbirth science. She also reveals the dangerous and overtly misogynistic motives of some of its proponents—conservative men who sought to limit women’s control and autonomy. As she debunks, one by one, the guilt-inducing myths of natural birth and parenting, Dr. Tuteur empowers women to embrace the method of childbirth that is right for them, while reassuring all parents that the most important thing they can do is love and care for their children.

In 2009, after decades of conflict, the Sri Lankan government proclaimed the decisive defeat of the Liberation Tamil Tigers of Elam. Subsequently, the state proved resistant to attempts by the UN and other international bodies to promote post-war reconciliation or reform. In this incisive new work, Judith Large investigates the ways in which the Rajapaksa government was able to subvert international diplomatic efforts, as well as exploring the wider context of rising Sinhalese nationalism, the attendant growth of discrimination against minorities, and efforts by both the diaspora and citizens within Sri Lanka to work towards a positive peace. Push Back is vital reading not only for those interested in Sri Lanka, but also for those concerned about the wider implications of the conflict for human rights, peace-making, and geopolitics.

The executive chairman and former CEO of Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin Robbins reflects on the unique, results-oriented discipline he's developed over decades of leadership, which provides a blueprint for any organization to achieve prosperity. We live in an era in which successful organizations can fail in a flash. But they can cope with change and thrive by creating a culture that supports positive pushback: questioning everything without disrespecting anyone. Nigel Travis has forty years of experience as a leader in large and successful organizations, as well as those facing existential crisis-such as Blockbuster as it dawdled in the face of the Netflix challenge. In his ten years as CEO and chairman of Dunkin' Brands, Travis fine-tuned his ideas about the challenge culture and perfected the practices required to build it. He argues that the best way for organizations to succeed in today's environment is to embrace challenge and encourage pushback. Everyone-from the new recruit to the senior leader-must be given the freedom to speak up and question the status quo, must learn how to talk in a civil way about difficult issues, and should be encouraged to debate strategies and tactics-although always in the spirit of shared purpose. How else will new ideas emerge? How else can organizations steadily improve? Through colorful storytelling, with many examples from his own career-including his leadership in turning around the fear-ridden culture of the London-based Leyton Orient Football Club, of which he is part owner-Travis shows how to establish a culture that welcomes challenge, achieves exceptional results, and ensures a prosperous future.

Adults in your church, small group, or other Christian organization are silently suffering the tragic consequences of having been sexually abused as children or youth. Why aren't they coming forward for help? Their reluctance may be related to wounds given by the faithful--religious people they trusted, who said things like "well, it wasn't rape" or "it's been thirty years--why is this such a big deal?" Such responses from people with religious authority deepen victims' need to shrink into anxiety, depression, and self-degradation. This book offers you the tools needed to undertake caring ministry to adults suffering in the aftermath of childhood sexual abuse. Once you understand the scientific research on such topics as trauma memory, consequences of abuse, and forgiveness, you will appreciate how caring collaboration can create hope and healing. In these pages every reader will find helpful content that will take you from feeling out of your depth to knowing you are empowered to be an effective companion in God's transforming work in the lives of survivors of abuse.

Were Americans placed on this earth to be dependents controlled by a ruling class? "No," says Rabbi Aryeh Spero, author of Push Back. "We are here to become robust individuals productive, creative, and confident." No one is more qualified to speak about these issues than Rabbi Spero. As a writer, dynamic speaker, radio commentator, and traveler throughout America, he has, for a generation, been "battling to preserve the soul of America." His profound ideas honor America and those who love it. He proclaims, "It's your country fight for it. Now, is the time. Let's Roll!" Spero equates historic Americanism with our Judeo-Christian outlook, asserting that true morality lies not in the welfare state but in free enterprise and individualism. Writing powerfully about America's historic identity and the Founders, he inspires us to fight liberal economic and social policies designed to radically transform our lives. "Americanism," he argues, "has always been about being self-sufficient...

Well, I guess he does have a good side.”... “You know, it’s probably my own fault.” ... “I need to cut him some slack, because he’s had a rough life.” It’s easy to get stuck in painful, even destructive relationships – caving in to a spouse’s addictions and consequent abuses, ignoring a live-at-home son’s inconsiderate behavior, or putting up with a supervisor’s manipulation or even harassment. We excuse them again and again, and then kick ourselves for not setting respectful boundaries. Break Through has a self-test to help readers get back in control and is filled with useful tools to help them make big changes in their life. This important book will show readers when to give in, but also when to push back for a happier, more stable life.

"The Administrator requested I give you a presentation of the information we have in reference to JL 1628 and the reported UFO encounter over Alaska within the Alaska Air Traffic Control area. Would you gentlemen introduce yourself?" One man stood up and turned toward the six remaining men. "These are members of the Presidential scientific staff, along with members of the CIA and FBI. I am the team leader." He flashed his identification badge and sat down offering no names of the participants. The software team leader rose and slipped a video in a recorder, a picture of a radarscope filled the television screen which covered an entire wall of the large office. All eyes were transfixed on the JL 1628's aircraft symbol moving across the pale green background. Clearly depicted adjacent to the JL 1628 symbol was an intermitting unidentified target traveling in the vicinity of the B747. The unknown target moved beside, in front of and around JL 1628 for 32 minutes as the group listened to the voice of the pilot, the FAA air traffic controller, and the military controller as the attempted to determine who, what and where the strange target came from and the intention of the invader. The seven men requested to watch the tape two more times before starting their questioning. The oldest of the seven stood up and begin the questioning. He stated that he was from the President's scientific staff and needed a few details. "What was the speed of the antenna?" The lead software engineer responded, "9 seconds." "What was the frequency of the radar?" "126.35 he responded. "What was the beam width?" "3.5 degrees." "What was the algorithm of the height finding radar?" One of the other software engineers responded with the algorithm as if he answered the same question everyday. The leader of the seven stood up, pointing to the many boxes filled with printouts and tapes from the incident. "We are confiscating all this data." He turned in the direction of the large screen, "this event never happened, we were never here. Your are not to utter one word of this entire event to anyone. You are sworn to secrecy. If fact, you will forget any involvement with JL 1628 including us, this room, and every scrap of paper and person connected. Understand?"
