"More compelling than a novel because it is true, this dramatic story records a watershed event in a way never told before - through the experience of some of the lay people who lived it, particularly Patty Crowley, one of the most revered women in the Catholic Church today." "Historians agree that the Vatican decision to go against the majority report of the Papal Birth Control Commission is one of the most important events in Catholic history in this century. To many, the encyclical Humanae Vitae represents both a turning point and a lost moment. Award-winning journalist Robert McClory brings to life the incredible events surrounding that decision, and reveals its meaning in a way that will stick in memory, stir new debate, and impact the future."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Faced with man-made climate change and the need to provide housing for a growing world population, society needs to rethink the way future buildings are made. Wood is a truly renewable building material that is unlimited in supply if its growth and harvest are sustainably managed. Recent technological advancements in engineering allow the use of timber for the construction of multi-story structures, turning our buildings into carbon sinks rather than becoming sources for CO2-emissions. The book presents convincing arguments for the increased use of wood as an alternative to more fossil fuel intensive building materials, with the goal of demonstrating that an integrated approach can have the potential for positive impact on the environment, local economies, and the building culture at large.
Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk shares a vision for America’s future embracing first principles, free markets, and small government. Kirk provides a roadmap on how to return to a free America, with an emphasis on reaching our youth and engaging them in the process.

There has been an abandonment of the principles of free markets and limited government upon which America was founded. We didn't get to this point over just the last eight years and it’s going to take more than one or two election cycles to reverse it. In Time for a Turning Point Charlie Kirk shows exactly what needs to be done and how it needs to be done to restore America's freedom. This is a book of hope, not despair—book of action, not condolences.

They say college is where you learn a lot about yourself. Well… in college I learned I wasn’t as straight as I thought I was… …And that I could fall in love with a woman. It was Angela who taught me that. We were just roommates. Two out-of-our-minds-horny roommates. At first I thought what I was feeling was a strange kind of displaced lust. I mean… I was innocent. I didn’t have a boyfriend. But the way my body would react when I saw her… The way I would focus on her lips… imagine them on mine. The way heat surged into my center. I couldn’t explain it. Then I started to notice something else. When I was with her… the world seemed brighter. When she laughed, my heart leapt. When she met my eyes… I felt like I was falling into her gaze. But we’re just two straight girls who happen to be roommates. This can’t possibly be happening… can it? Turning Point is a steamy lesbian romance-with-a-happy-ending that tells the story of two roommates finding their true selves, and stumbling upon unexpected true love.

We solve our problems based upon the way we think of ourselves and the world. From peak energy and peak debt to failing economies and the realities of climate change, everyday life is showing us where we’ve outgrown the thinking of the past. It’s also showing us where big changes in the world mean big changes in our lives. Through dramatic shifts in our jobs, our relationship to money, our health, and even our homes, it’s clear that our lives are changing in ways we’ve never seen, to a degree that we’re not prepared for, and at speeds that we’ve never experienced. It’s also clear that the thinking of the past is no longer enough to meet our needs today. A new, healthy, and sustainable world is emerging, and our ability to accept what it offers begins with our willingness to: • Honestly acknowledge the facts of what we’re up against. • Embrace the new discoveries that reveal the role of cooperation in nature and human communities. • Create resilience in our lives, families, and communities based upon five proven and sustainable principles. • Through easy-to-understand science and the wisdom traditions of the past, The Turning Point identifies the extremes in the world that are reshaping our lives, the keys to thrive in the midst of the transformation, and the strategies to get us there.
