Challenging old and outdated perceptions that feminine traits are weaknesses, The Feminine Revolution revisits those characteristics to show how they are powerful assets that should be embraced rather than maligned. It argues that feminine traits have been mischaracterized as weak, fragile, diminutive, and embittered for too long, and offers a call to arms to redeem them as the personal power tools they are meant to be. The authors, Amy Stanton and Catherine Connors, begin with a brief history of when-and-why these traits were defined as weaknesses, sharing opinions from iconic feminists like Samantha Bee, Sheryl Sandberg, and Misty Copeland. Then they offer a set of feminine principles that challenge an unfair perceptions of feminine traits, and provide women new mindsets to reclaim those traits with confidence. The principles include counterintuitive messages, like: Take things hard. Women feel things deeply, especially the hard stuff. Enjoy glamour. Peacocks´ garish coloring is part of their survival strategy. Chit-chat. Women have been derogated for ´´gossip´´ for centuries. What others call gossip, we call social connection. Emote. Express yourself with signs of enthusiasm, affection, and warmth. Embrace your domestic side. Don´t be ashamed to be cultivate the beauty of your home. With an upbeat blend of self-help and fresh analysis, The Feminine Revolution reboots femininity for the modern woman and give her the tools to accept and embrace her own authentic nature.
´´We are undergoing a historical transformation in the way we create and disseminate energy. Together, Internet technology and the reality of renewable energy are creating a new type of electrical grid, one in which energy is stored and distributed on an individual basis. Soon, hundreds of millions of human beings will be generating their own green energy in their homes, offices and factories, and sharing it, just as they now create their own information and share it on the Internet. In just a few years, millions of buildings and even cities will become energy self-sufficient, signaling the end of our reliance on fossil fuels. This transformation is already underway in Europe, where author Jeremy Rifkin serves as EU advisor on a project that will revolutionize the continent´s energy supply, with Asia to follow. We even see shades of it in Texas, Colorado, and California, where electrical companies will be laying down parts of the Smart Grid over the next several years. But it´s not just about the promise of clean energy. Rather, this ´´Energy Internet´´ will fundamentally change every aspect of the way we work and live. It will foster continental markets and the creation of continental political unions to oversee new expansive commercial opportunities. It will signify the end of needless wars fought over energy sources, and the dawning of an era of true international cooperation. Finally, it offers the hope that we can get to a post-carbon era by mid century and avert catastrophic climate change. Here, Rifkin explains how the United States can embrace this ambitious vision of the future, end its decades-old crisis over foreign oil, and ensure its continued status as world power. He also paints an accessible, anecdotal picture of what our lives will look like in this new global order-if we can summon the political will to join it´´--

Myra Strober became a feminist on the Bay Bridge, heading toward San Francisco. It is 1970. She has just been told by the chairman of Berkeley´s economics department that she can never get tenure. Driving home afterward, wondering if she got something out of the freezer for her family´s dinner, she realizes the truth: she is being denied a regular faculty position because she is a mother. Flooded with anger, she also finds her life´s work: to study and fight sexism, in the workplace, in academia, and at home. Strober´s generous memoir captures the spirit of a revolution lived fully, from her Brooklyn childhood (and her shock at age twelve when she´s banished to the women´s balcony at shul) to her groundbreaking Stanford seminar on women and work. In the 1970s, the term "sexual harassment" had not yet been coined. Occupational segregation, quantifying the value of work in the home, and the cost of discrimination were new ideas. Strober was a pioneer, helping to create a new academic field and founding institutions to establish it. But she wasn´t alone: she benefited from the women´s movement, institutional change, and new federal regulations that banned sex discrimination. She continues the work today and invites us to join her. The book is published by MIT Press."Both women and men will find a friend in these pages." (Gloria Steinem)"Strober´s compelling story is a page-turner, a home run! It should be required reading in business, law, and all of the social sciences." (Irma Herrera, former Executive Director, Equal Rights Advocates)"In this beautifully written book, Myra Strober deftly combines her personal story with the changes in women´s lives during the last part of the twentieth century… A wonderful read." (Lotte Bailyn, MIT Sloan; author of Breaking the Mold: Redesigning Work for Productive and Satisfying Lives) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Laura Jennings.

The unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Our Revolution by Bernie Sanders, read by Bernie Sanders and Mark Ruffalo. Bernie Sanders stormed international headlines after running an extraordinary campaign for the Democratic primaries that saw over 13 million people turn out to vote for him and changed the global discussion surrounding US politics. But how did a complete unknown and a democratic socialist make such waves? In Our Revolution, Sanders provides a unique insight into the campaign that galvanized a movement, sharing experiences from the campaign trail and the ideas and strategies that shaped it. Sanders´ message resonated with millions. His supporters are young and old, dissatisfied with expanding social inequality, struggling with economic instability and fighting against a political elite that has long ignored them. This global phenomenon is driving movements from Syriza in Greece to Podemos in Spain and the support for Jeremy Corbyn in the UK. Drawing on decades of experience as an activist and public servant, Sanders outlines his ideas for continuing this revolution. He shows how we can fight for a progressive economic, environmental, racial and social justice agenda that creates jobs, raises wages and protects the planet. Searing in its assessment of the current political and economic situation but hopeful and inspiring in its vision of the future, this book is essential for anyone tired of ´same as usual´ politics and looking for a way to change the game. 1.
