Описание: Find out what happens when fed-up citizens turn an engineer loose on the political swamp. The beginning of this century marked the "Lost Decade" for Michigan. More than a half million people fled the state, decreasing her Electoral College votes from eighteen to sixteen. Career politicians in both parties are clenching their gator-like jaws tighter and tighter on hard-working Michiganders. Instead of serving the common interests of the people who elected them, the politics-as-usual crowd is beholden to special interests that generously support their pursuit of power. That's what drove a successful aerospace engineer and small-business owner to get out of his comfort zone, run for office, and restore the voice of the people. Echoing President Trump's battle cry, Colbeck's strategy is to drain the swamp and rid Michigan of her entrenched "alligators." Michigan is on the verge of making a dramatic comeback. Colbeck's strategy for returning power to "We the People" is well on its way In Wrestling Alligators, you will learn -How government really works. -How good people are seduced by the political swamp. -What happens when one attempts to drain the swamp. -How we can restore our faith in government.
Описание: Our systems are failing. Old models--for education, healthcare and government, food production, energy supply--are creaking under the weight of modern challenges. As the world's population heads towards 10 billion, it's clear we need new approaches. In We Do Things Differently, historian and futurologist Mark Stevenson sets out to find them, across four continents. From Brazilian favelas to high tech Boston, from rural India to a shed inventor in England's home counties, Mark Stevenson travels the world to find the advance guard re-imagining our future. At each stop, he meets innovators who have already succeeded in challenging the status quo, pioneering new ways to make our world more sustainable, equitable and humane. Populated by extraordinary characters--including Detroit citizens who created new jobs and promoted healthy eating by building greenhouses, an Austrian mayor who built a new biomass plant using the by-product of a local flooring company, and an Indian doctor who crowdsourced his research and published his findings online--We Do Things Differently paints a riveting picture of what can be done to address the world's most pressing dilemmas, offering a much needed dose of down-to-earth optimism. It is a window on (and a roadmap to) a different and better future.
The Bible is laced with stories in which strangers behave better than believers. What do these encounters with "others"--people from different cultures, religions, genders, economic and social classes--teach us about our own spiritual values, about the faith and God behind them? In Sacred Strangers, Nancy Haught leads readers through these stories, line by line, offering insight to open hearts to sacred strangers at a time when personal encounters can make us or break us--as people, Americans, and citizens of the world.
