Everyone has heard of Habitat for Humanity, the faith-based housing initiative that has built homes for more than a million of the world´s poor. Many are familiar with its founders, Millard and Linda Fuller. But few know the amazing love story behind the movement a story that began accidentally and will conclude in a world forever changed by its impact. By age 29, Millard Fuller was a self-made millionaire. But that success came at a cost. He never took a family vacation, had kids he barely knew, and a lonely wife who was about to leave him. Ultimately, realizing that he was about to lose what really mattered, Fuller reconciled with his wife and rearranged his priorities. In 1965, the Fullers gave away their personal fortune and dedicated their lives to serving others, eventually founding Habitat for Humanity in 1976. In this capacity, the Fullers traveled the globe, receiving the praise of prime ministers and presidents, sharing meals with prisoners, and appealing for funds and volunteers. More important than any accolade or award were the homes they built and the hope they gave. The Fullers have done more for the cause of housing the poor than any other couple in history. Eventually, a struggle for the reins of the most beloved nonprofit of our times would result in the firing of Millard and Linda by Habitat International s board of directors. This didn´t mean the end to their vision the Fullers would rebound, continuing to support local Habitat affiliates and beginning The Fuller Center for Housing, determined to pursue their dream of building for people everywhere simple, decent places to live. 1.

Almost 60 percent of those in American evangelical churches believe that many religions can lead to eternal life. But if Jesus is to be trusted when he says that no one comes to the Father except through him, the church is failing in its mission. And it´s not hard to guess why. An exclusive Jesus just isn´t popular in our inclusive world. Dr. Robert Jeffress calls on Christians to recover the exclusive claims of the one they claim as Lord and Savior, not as a way to keep people out of heaven but as the only way to invite them in. He tackles questions like: Can people be saved who have never heard of Christ? What about those who worship God by another name? Do children automatically go to heaven when they die? True compassion for non-Christians doesn´t lie in letting them go their way while we go ours but in sharing the only true way with them. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Maurice England.

Sharing Power:Colombia´S Dramatic Surge of Women Leaders (1957-1998) Barbara Frechette
Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject Economics - International Economic Relations, grade: 2,0, University of Göttingen (Professur für Empirische Außenwirtschaft), course: International Financial Markets, language: English, abstract: In this paper, potential of international risk sharing for emerging markets will be investigated, particularly in terms of financial integration and liberalization. The incentives of financial integration will be surveyed in terms of international risk sharing, indicate benefits for emerging market economies. In addition, it will be investigated if huge foreign capital inflows show positive effects of risk sharing for them. Several government leaders all over the world recognize the potential of financial globalization for their country. A strong incentive for deeper financial linking can be observed. Three of the development countries in Africa already grew up to the so called emerging markets: Egypt, Morocco and South Africa. To keep up with the fast growing population and facilitating the economic growth, they want to stimulate employments for agriculture and infrastructure by investment partnerships with the G20, whereas Donald Trump, the President of the USA, would like to cut funding World Bank programs like credit guarantees or small business access to finance for these countries. Indeed, these development countries, also including emerging markets, need to implement more structural changes like liberalizing financial markets and financial transparency for these intentions. Is international risk sharing able to smooth uncertainties in the emerging markets? Will they catch up the distance to industrial countries? In light of ongoing financial integration and economic development, the influence of international risk sharing in terms of financial globalization for emerging markets will be investigated. Just little evidence of risk sharing can be seen throughout the last decades, but still some persuasive inquiries are to be considered. Improvements in international risk sharing potentially lead to stabilizing effects, scarcer sudden stops and smaller risk premiums. Structural policy changes and better financial integration could surmount the threshold effect.

This book examines the theoretical and practical relevance and challenges of the consociationalist model of democracy. Since the publication of the Politics of Accommodation (1968) and Democracy in Plural Societies (1977) Professor Lijpharts theories and practical implementations have played a key role in establishing enduring peace settlements. In this edited volume, scholars and Professor Lijphart himself critically examine the history of consocationalism and its application in areas including Northern Ireland, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Colombia. The book will be essential reading for undergraduate and graduate students of political science, comparative politics, transitional justice and peace studies. It will also be of use to practitioners ranging from diplomats to NGOs who are interested in the practical application of tested models of political accommodation.
