While the world is still coming to grips with the implications of globalization, Tectonic Shift investigates what the globe’s economic and geopolitical future looks like and discovers the unfolding of an unprecedented realignment of forces. Based on extensive study and analysis, the authors of this compelling book argue that regionalization will replace the much celebrated globalization, characterized by extensive North-South integration between developed and developing nations. They describe how the world is evolving into three huge economic and political unions, which will take shape by 2020, and predict that: - The EU will expand both eastward as well as to the south, right up to Southern Africa. - The Asian block, initially led by Japan and then by China, will encompass a united Korea, ASEAN, Australia and New Zealand and create a vast free trade area by approximately 2015. - The US and Latin American nations will revive the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA), and will be joined by the UK. - South Asia will have its own free trade area, which will eventually ally with the FTAA. Sheth and Sisodia argue that these evolving, strategic partnerships will involve free trade, monetary union, cross-border infrastructure investments, regional development agencies, and conflict resolution mechanisms. They also discuss the key steps that each region will have to take to be successful, and how it can overcome obstacles to change. Handled properly, the authors further argue, this evolution will result in faster and broader economic development coupled with diminished conflict among nations.

Clay's Tectonic Shift focuses on artists John Mason (b. 1927), Kenneth Price (1935-2012), and Peter Voulkos (1924–2002) and their radical early work in postwar Los Angeles where they formed the vanguard of a new California ceramics movement. The three artists broke from the craft tradition that emphasized the function of a piece. Experimenting with scale, surface, color, and volume, their work was instrumental in elevating ceramics from a craft to a fine art. Earlier exhibitions and publications stated that key innovations in this new ceramics movement were made at the Otis Art institute and that its direction was defined by a group of students surrounding the charismatic leader Voulkos. The truth is that the new trend in ceramics was driven by the works that Price, Mason, and Voulkos made in a subsequent, independent phase when they were working as professional artists in Los Angeles, and the goal of Clay's Tectonic Shift is to correct that misperception. These three artists followed individual paths as they willfully propelled a new use of the medium into the mainstream professional arena, where it was widely recognized and documented. An exhibition of the same name will be on view at the Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery at Scripps College from January 21 through April 8, 2012, as part of Pacific Standard Time, a collaboration of more than sixty cultural institutions across Southern California to tell the story of the birth of the Los Angeles art scene.

In this wide-ranging book, Wall Street legend Henry Kaufman recounts the events surrounding the catastrophic collapse of Lehman Brothers from his then vantage point on the board. He explains how, ironically, the Federal Reserve’s shortcomings contributed to its growing power. And he argues that Dodd-Frank – by sanctioning rather than truly addressing the too‐big‐to‐fail dilemma – squandered a rare opportunity for essential reform. Whether sparring in print with Citicorp’s mercurial Walter Wriston, consulting with British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, spurning a deal with junk bond king Michael Milken, or reflecting on his long-time friend Paul Volcker, Kaufman brings readers inside post-war Wall Street. Looking ahead, he dissects major national and global trends and the likely future of credit markets, financial institutions, and leading economies. As we search for bearings in the wake of the 2008 financial debacle, Henry Kaufman offers sage and penetrating analysis of today’s superheated and – he argues – still‐fragile financial world.

Semantics aims to describe the significance (or meaning) of linguistic expressions in a systematic way. Metasemantics, or foundational semantics, asks how expressions gain their significance in the first place - what makes it the case that expressions mean what they do. Metasemantics has recently been discussed extensively by philosophers of language, philosophers of mind, and philosophically minded linguists and psychologists. A large concern is semantic indeterminacy, the worry that there is no fact of the matter as to the semantic significance of our words. Ori Simchen offers a distinctly metasemantic strategy to counter this threat. Semantics, Metasemantics, Aboutness is the first book-length treatment of metasemantics and its relation to the thriving research program of truth-conditional semantics.

What does it mean to understand something? What is the essence of understanding, when compared across multiple domains? Varieties of Understanding offers new and original work on the nature of understanding, raising questions about what understanding looks like from different perspectives and exploring how ordinary people use the notion of understanding. According to a long historical tradition, understanding comes in different varieties. In particular, it is said that understanding people has a different epistemic profile than understanding the natural world-that it calls on different cognitive resources and brings to bear distinctive normative considerations. Thus, in order to understand people we might need to appreciate, or in some way sympathetically reconstruct, the reasons that led a person to act in a certain way. By comparison, when it comes to understanding natural events, like earthquakes or eclipses, no appreciation of reasons or acts of sympathetic reconstruction is arguably needed-mainly because there are no reasons on the scene to even be appreciated, and no perspectives to be sympathetically pieced together. This volume brings together some of the world's leading philosophers, psychologists, and theologians in order to shed light on the various ways in which we understand the world, pushing debates on this issue to new levels of sophistication and insight.

The 7.0 magnitude earthquake that hit Haiti’s capital on January 12, 2010 will be remembered as one of the world’s deadliest disasters. The earthquake was a tragedy that gripped the nation—and the world. But as a disaster it also magnified the social ills that have beset this island nation that sits squarely in the United States’ diplomatic and geopolitical shadow. The quake exposed centuries of underdevelopment, misguided economic policies, and foreign aid interventions that have contributed to rampant inequality and social exclusion in Haiti. Tectonic Shifts offers a diverse on-the-ground set of perspectives about Haiti’s cataclysmic earthquake and the aftermath that left more than 1.5 million individuals homeless. Following a critical analysis of Haiti’s heightened vulnerability as a result of centuries of foreign policy and most recently neoliberal economic policies, this book addresses a range of contemporary realities, foreign impositions, and political changes that occurred during the relief and reconstruction periods. Analysis of these realities offers tools for engaged, principled reflection and action. Essays by scholars, journalists, activists, and Haitians still on the island and those in the Diaspora highlight the many struggles that the Haitian people face today, providing lessons not only for those impacted and involved in relief, but for people engaged in struggles for justice and transformation in other parts of the world.

Tectonic Dyssynchrony, as Karim describes, is a loss of synchronous motion of the earth’s tectonic plates. Professor Karim, a doctorate in geophysics from a very prestigious American university, has a special interest in earth’s seismic activity. He believes the tectonic dyssynchrony is responsible for an erratic gliding motion of the tectonic plates, thereby causing disastrous earthquakes, tsunamis, sinkholes, and a rare entity labeled as “spontaneous human combustion” or SHC for short. The book describes an increase in frequency and intensity of earthquakes and tsunamis and also formation of sinkholes in our recent times; the sinkhole in Yamal Peninsula of Siberia was 262 feet wide! Many theories are advanced for the increase in earth’s seismic activities, which are felt on the earth’s surface, manifesting as massive tsunamis, just as the one seen in Japan recently and a more recent massive extrusion of lava on the island of Hawaii. Professor Karim believes that the erratic behavior of the tectonic plates is due to an excessive removal of very highly viscous crude oil from the earth’s crust and its replacement with wash water. He postulates that the crude oil trapped within the inner crust of the earth serves as greasing material that facilitates smooth gliding of the tectonic plates and conversely removal of the lubricant, he believes, is the cause for jerky tectonic gliding. He believes that an incessant removal of the crude oil over the years has now reached a point where the minimum level of lubricant optimally required for a smooth gliding action is exhausted, thereby causing dyssynchrony in the plate motion or simply putting an erratic and jerky motion of the tectonic plates. Karim’s research put him on crossroads with the Big Oil. Big Oil was fighting on many fronts; the state governments and also the federal government had fi led lawsuits against the Big Oil. Oklahoma town meetings and street protests were everyday frontline news, and some universities researching the effects of greenhouse gases had contradicted many of the Big Oil–sponsored researches. Even some private foundations had sued the Big Oil. Big Oil was afraid of a greater governmental oversight, which may even prompt an injunction supporting a moratorium on future drilling all because of the irrefutable findings presented by Professor Karim’s research. In an attempt to thwart Professor Karim’s research, Big Oil offered Karim a very lucrative contract to join the research team of the Big Oil, a contract that Karim decided to forego as the contract deprived him the intellectual property right to his own research. The Big Oil attempted several illegal means to stop Karim, but he persisted, by luck or sheer perseverance. They even staged a car accident that demolished his Mini to smithereens, but Karim suffered only a few bruises. Karim was forced to leave the world-renowned and prestigious Massachusetts College of Technology in Boston and go into hiding in a third-world country where he continued his research incognito and used an alias as his life was under a constant threat. The story is a science-based fiction that will take the reader on a journey along with Karim on his travel from Africa to California to Boston and onward to Madagascar, sharing his research, observations, experiences, and love for trivia. The story will take the searching mind to a futuristic world of artificial intelligence–assisted holographic presentation and a science of induced (man-made) seismicity, the discovery and use of the measure of gravitational waves, and onward to a mystical world of beliefs and predictions. The book will incite the reader to think out of the box and be more like Karim in their outlook—a world citizen.
