Magic, mystery, and science : the occult in Western civilization by Dan Burton ( Book )
9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Magic, Mystery, and Science presents the occult as a "third stream" of belief, as important to the shaping of Western civilization as Greek rationalism or Judeo-Christianity. The occult seeks explanations in a world that is living and intelligent--quite unlike the one supposed by science. By taking these beliefs seriously, while keeping an eye on science, this book aims to capture some of the power of the occult. Readers will discover that the occult has a long history that reaches back to Babylonia and ancient Egypt. It proceeds alongside, and frequently mingles with, religion and science. From the Egyptian Book of the Dead to New Age beliefs, from Plato to Adolf Hitler, occult ways of knowing have been used to explain a world that still tempts us with the knowledge of its dark secrets. --From publisher's description

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Some of the options suggested to enhance mail security and operations included (1) conducting risk-based assessments of potential threats; (2) redesigning and reducing the number of collection boxes to enhance employee and public safety; (3) encouraging the mailing industry to take steps to enhance mail security, such as controlling access to their facilities and participating in a security certification process for bulk mailers; (4) reducing the anonymity of mailers through such measures as requiring identification from mailers and using video-enabled kiosks; (5) creating separate mail streams corresponding to the level of risk associated with the source of the mail; (6) accelerating the Service's implementation of an "information platform" to, among other things, track and trace mail using enhanced bar codes and trackable postage; (7) changing postage rate structures to establish incentives for mailers to promote security, such as discounts and surcharges; (8) communicating a clear and consistent message to employees and the public on security-related matters; and (9) reexamining the postal infrastructure and delivery standards to improve efficiency and security. Operational issues raised included the following questions: (1) What risks need to be addressed, such as biological, chemical, radiological, and/or explosive threats? (2) What role should the Service, the mailing industry, and others play in protecting the mall? (3) What impact will efforts to reduce the anonymity of mail have on mailers' convenience and privacy, mail volume, and mail cost? (4) what is the availability of effective detection equipment? (5) What changes can be made to the postal infrastructure to promote both efficiency and security? (6) What security measures need to be taken immediately? and (7) what tradeoffs between mail security and safety, service, convenience, and cost are the public and the mailing industry willing to accept for the nation's mail system?
