The Gendered Self Further commentary on the transsexual phenomenon By Anne M Vitale
eBook (PDF): $5.99
(3 Ratings)
Based on the author's experience in treating over 500 gender dysphoric individuals over the last 26 years,The Gendered Self is the story of what it’s like to be born into and to live out one's... More > life as a transsexual in a cissexual world. The author starts by showing how the developing brain is genderized in-utero and how that process can go awry leaving affected individuals sex/gender incongruent. Although hormonal and surgical means is the current treatment of choice, we have come to learn that with Genital Reassignment Surgery life takes a turn wherein the individual is permanently consigned to a parallel universe: not male, not female but a bio-sociological combination of both. Transsexualism is a life long existential dilemma challenging the very nature of psychological survival. Nietzsche famously said "What does not kill you makes you stronger". As the author shows, developing a healthy transsexual identity and going on to live a meaningful life is certainly a testament to all who persist.< Less

More > be a giant hologram, quite literally a kind of image or construct created, at least in part, by the human mind. University of London physicist David Bohm, a protégé of Einstein and one of the world's most respected quantum physicists, and Stanford neurophysiologist Karl Pribram, an architect of our modern understanding of the brain, have developed a remarkable new way of looking at the universe. Their theory explains not only many of the unsolved puzzles of physics but also such mysterious occurrences as telepathy, out-of-body and near-death experiences, "lucid" dreams, and even religious and mystical experiences such as feelings of cosmic unity and miraculous healings.< Less

Hotwiring the Transient Universe By Sarah Emery Bunn, Roy Williams, Rob Seaman

Orbiting satellites & giant astronomical surveys are monitoring much of the sky regularly, detecting vast numbers of variable astronomical objects, some with exciting and energetic astrophysics... More > such as blazar eruptions, cataclysmic variables & supernovae; some much closer, perhaps discovery of a potentially Earth-impacting asteroid. A VOEvent is a message about an astronomical event: a change in brightness or position in the sky. The message can be sent to other observers for follow-up observations, or it can be added to other data about the event to aid understanding. Many existing & future surveys are using VOEvent for rapid event noti¬fications, including CRTS, GCN (Fermi and SWIFT), LIGO, LOFAR, LSST, MOA, OGLE, PTF & SVOM. This book explores transient surveys & classification, what VOEvents mean & how to build them, the rich structure of the VOEvent 2.0 standard, working with the Virtual Observatory infrastructure, & ideas on an interoperable transport network. http://hotwireduniverse.org< Less

Statistics and research methodology: A gentle conversation is a textbook meant for undergraduate and graduate student taking a statistics and research methodology class. The intent of this textbook... More > is to present statistics in a way that is, we hope, easy to understand. Yes, there are new terms to learn, but in the end, not really that many. Yes, there is a little math, but not anything other than addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. No, statistics is not that complicated. This book is a “teaching” textbook, in that it provides students with the background and processes used in statistics, but the instructor plays an important role in the learning process. He or she can focus on the questions that they feel best address the types of problems that you will be exposed to in your respective fields of study. While this textbook uses mostly psychology-based examples, statistics is statistics and can be used in any field, so the problems can be tailored to your field of study by your instructor.< Less
