The goddess pose : the audacious life of Indra Devi, the woman who helped bring yoga to the West by Michelle Goldberg( Book )

18 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and Dutch and held by 942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The incredible story of the woman--actress, dancer, yogi, globetrotter--who brought yoga to America and to much of the rest of the western world. Born Eugenia Peterson in early 20th century Russia, Indra Devi was a rebel from earliest childhood. In the 1930s she fled to Berlin, and then--driven by her passion for yoga and a fascination with yogic philosophy (and Theosophy)--she journeyed to India, at a time when unaccompanied young European women were unheard of. In India she performed perhaps her greatest feat--convincing even the most recalcitrant yogis, from Krishnamurti to Krishnamacharya, to reveal to her the secrets of their art. She would go on to share what she learned with men and women around the world--teaching Gloria Swanson and Greta Garbo in Hollywood, then moving to Mexico and later to Buenos Aires--helping to usher in the craze for yoga that continues unabated in the U.S. and throughout the world today. Written with vivid clarity, and describing the extraordinary spread and popularization of a philosophical movement, The Goddess Posebrings Indra Devi's little known but wholly remarkable story to life"--
The means of reproduction : sex, power, and the future of the world by Michelle Goldberg( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Investigative journalist Michelle Goldberg exposes the global war on women's reproductive rights and its disastrous and unreported consequences for the future of global development. Women's rights are often treated as mere appendages to great questions of war, peace, poverty, and economic development. But as networks of religious fundamentalists, feminists, and bureaucrats struggle to remake sexual and childbearing norms worldwide, the battle to control women's bodies has become a high-stakes enterprise, with the United States often supporting the most reactionary forces. Goldberg shows how the emancipation of women has become the key human rights struggle of the 21st century. Empowering women is the key to retarding the progress of AIDS, curbing overpopulation, and helping the third world climb out of poverty, but attempts to improve women's status elicit fierce opposition from conservatives who see women's submission as key to their own national or religious identity.--From publisher description
The Goddess pose : the audacious life of Indra Devi, the woman who helped bring yoga to the West by Michelle Goldberg( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When the woman who would become Indra Devi was born in Russia in 1899, yoga was virtually unknown outside of India. By the time of her death, in 2002, it was being practiced everywhere, from Brooklyn to Berlin to Ulaanbaatar. Born into the minor aristocracy (as Eugenia Peterson), Devi grew up in the midst of one of the most turbulent times in human history. Forced to flee the Russian Revolution as a teenager, she joined a famous Berlin cabaret troupe, dove into the vibrant prewar spiritualist movement, and, at a time when it was nearly unthinkable for a young European woman to travel alone, followed the charismatic Theosophical leader Jiddu Krishnamurti to India. Once on the subcontinent, she performed in Indian silent cinema and hobnobbed with the leaders of the independence movement. But her greatest coup was convincing a recalcitrant master yogi to train her in the secrets of his art

Political correctness gone mad? by Stephen Fry( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Without free speech there is no true thought.' - Jordan Peterson. 'You're telling me I'm being sensitive, and students looking for safe spaces that they're being hypersensitive. If you're white, this country is one giant safe space.' - Michael Eric Dyson. Is political correctness an enemy of free speech, open debate and the free exchange of ideas? Or is it a progressive force, eroding the dominant power relationships and social norms that exclude marginalised groups from society?"--Publisher description
Silhouette city( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A feature-length cinematic essay that explores an emerging apocalyptic mass movement seeking "dominion" over all aspects of contemporary society. Investigating the ideological echoes between The Covenant, the Sword and the Arm of the Lord, an obscure Christian survivalist group active in the 1970's-80's (whose compound included a mock town, dubbed "Silhouette City," used for urban warfare training) and the mainstream Christian Right of today (including D. James Kennedy and his Coral Ridge Ministries, Rod Parsley, Ron Luce and his Teen Mania, Inc.), the film reveals a growing political force in the United States that seeks to usher in a fundamentalist Christian "city on a hill" by any means necessary, including efforts to proselytize within the military by taking advantage of command structure and by blurring the concepts of American military power with Christian moral authority. In a period marked with religious violence, the film examines the motivations for adopting an apocalyptic, militaristic worldview and opens a window into the foundational ideas, organizational structure and psychological dynamics of this powerful special interest group
Political correctness : the Munk debates by Michael Eric Dyson( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is political correctness an enemy of free speech, open debate, and the free exchange of ideas? Or, by confronting head-on the dominant power relationships and social norms that exclude marginalized groups are we creating a more equitable and just society? For some the argument is clear. Political correctness is stifling the free and open debate that fuels our democracy. It is also needlessly dividing one group from another and promoting social conflict. Others insist that creating public spaces and norms that give voice to previously marginalized groups broadens the scope of free speech. The drive towards inclusion over exclusion is essential to creating healthy, diverse societies in an era of rapid social change. The twenty-second semi-annual Munk Debate, held on May 18, 2018, pits acclaimed journalist, professor, and ordained minister Michael Eric Dyson and New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg against renowned actor and writer Stephen Fry and University of Toronto professor and author Jordan Peterson to debate the implications of political correctness and freedom of speech."--

Minority Languages Learned Informally The Social Construction of Language Skills through the Discourse of Ontario Employers. NALL Working Paper by Michelle Goldberg( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many immigrants, refugees, and aboriginal Canadians learn their own languages in the normal, informal way. These minority languages learned informally are not valued as a skill that yields returns in the labor market in the same way the official languages or formally learned languages do. What counts as a skill in a society, in a given point in time, is the product of complex phenomenological, social, economic, ideological, and political processes. Discourse is key to this process of social and cultural reproduction. The discourse of Ontario employers socially constructs the definition of what counts as a skill in Ontario workplaces and thus what warrants value in the labor market. The notion of skill is a construction that is socially created and hence changeable. If we want to change the unjust situation that affects the speakers of minority languages, we need to change the discourse surrounding minority languages to one that truly values minority languages as skills worth conserving, maintaining, and putting to use.

Assessing the Financial Value of Patient Engagement( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Background: While patient groups, regulators, and sponsors are increasingly considering engaging with patients in the design and conduct of clinical development programs, sponsors are often reluctant to go beyond pilot programs because of uncertainty in the return on investment. We developed an approach to estimate the financial value of patient engagement. Methods: Expected net present value (ENPV) is a common technique that integrates the key business drivers of cost, time, revenue, and risk into a summary metric for project strategy and portfolio decisions. We assessed the impact of patient engagement on ENPV for a typical oncology development program entering phase 2 or phase 3. Results: For a pre–phase 2 project, the cumulative impact of a patient engagement activity that avoids one protocol amendment and improves enrollment, adherence, and retention is an increase in net present value (NPV) of $62MM ($65MM for pre–phase 3) and an increase in ENPV of $35MM ($75MM for pre–phase 3). Compared with an investment of $100,000 in patient engagement, the NPV and ENPV increases can exceed 500-fold the investment. This ENPV increase is the equivalent of accelerating a pre–phase 2 product launch by 2½ years (1½ years for pre–phase 3). Conclusions: Risk-adjusted financial models can assess the impact of patient engagement. A combination of empirical data and subjective parameter estimates shows that engagement activities with the potential to avoid protocol amendments and/or improve enrollment, adherence, and retention may add considerable financial value. This approach can help sponsors assess patient engagement investment decisions
