What makes a pizza perfect? There might have been many instances in your life where you ate a slice of pizza and couldn’t help but say it was the best you ever had. So, what was it that made it so good that you simply had to compliment it? Was it the clever use of ingredients? Was it baked differently than it usually is? Was it the seasoning and toppings that were used? The fact remains that a perfect pizza is the sum of all these factors. If you use the right ingredients but don’t cook the pizza well, it wouldn’t taste awesome. Same goes for not using the best topping for a particular pizza. So, it has to be an effort in totality. We have tried to compile a list of pizza recipes that are perfect in every sense of the word. If you haven’t baked a perfect pizza yet, this Book will help you get there.

Never has Enlightenment been made so accessible. The book that is guaranteed to show you what you haven't seen before, revealing the Missing Keys to Self-Realization. This book exposes the ultimate practical guide to Enlightenment & uncovers the unseen blockages made by the ego-mind. It is a practical book especially for those who: - are sincere practitioners, meditators or seekers of the Truth; - wish to put an end to the misery-creator known as ego in this lifetime; - have struggled with their meditation and spiritual endeavors for a long time but have yet to put an end to all dissatisfaction, suffering or incompleteness. Supreme Bliss, Peace and eternal completeness are truly possible! Your true Self can unquestionably be realized in this lifetime, if you follow what is shared in here. 25 Non-dual practices will be given that point directly toward your true nature, helping you to experientially recognize and abide as deathless Consciousness that you are, effortlessly. The Parvastha of Kriya Yoga, the Presence of Being, the Background of Awareness, the "I Am." It's not a mere philosophy-it's the bridge toward true and perpetual Freedom. This guide will make it accessible, direct, and practical. You have been searching for something beyond yourself, beyond the mundane life, beyond the plastic flowers of human existence. Yet, every time you seem to be closing in on the Truth, something has gotten in the way. Despite many meditations, spiritual practices, pilgrimages, mystical experiences, and so on, you see yourself sidetracking from your spiritual journey, over and over again. It is as if it were stronger than you. It's not your fault though... it's the false self, posing as the real Self that prevents you from reaching the highest potential of human existence. Its name: Ego. By showing you how the ego works behind the scenes, and leads you to live a life of discontentment and incompleteness, you will finally wake up to your true purpose of attaining Freedom, going beyond Kundalini, Kriya Yoga & all Spirituality into awakening Non-Duality. For a long time you've been invested in your current way of living, afraid of climbing the ultimate step into the unknown, bound by the ego's illusions. As long as you keep investing in your current way of living, you will not climb the ultimate step into the unknown. Recognizing the "I-ego," dissolving it and living without it, is truly being enlightened. Are you ready to dive into this unknown? *This book can be read as a standalone, or in conjunction with the previous three books

Perverse Psychology

The pathologization of sexual violence and transgenderism

Psychology defines people who take pleasure in the suffering of others as having a form of mental illness, while media representations frame such behaviour as ‘evil’. This is hotly contested territory, not least where sexual violence is concerned – violence which feminist voices argue is related to power rather than sex. Perverse Psychology examines psychiatric constructions of sexual violence and transgender people from the 19th century until the latest DSM-5 diagnoses. It uses discourse analysis to interrogate the discursive boundaries between 'normal' and 'abnormal' rape, as well as the pathologization of gender and sexual diversity. The book illuminates for the first time the parallels between psychiatry’s construction of gender diversity and sexual violence, and leads us to question whether it is violence that the profession finds so intriguing, or the gender nonconformity it represents. Perverse Psychology is ideal reading for postgraduate students and researchers in the fields of critical psychology, discourse analysis, feminism, transgender people, LGBT psychology, and the history of psychiatry.

Conflict of Laws, Private International Law, Cases and Materials

The authors of the fifteenth edition are proud of the book''s heritage, which dates to 1936. At the same time, they are mindful of the needs of students and professors addressing the Conflict of Laws eight decades later. We have added the subtitle "Private International Law" to acknowledge the more common title of the subject outside the U.S., as well as to alert students that they will face a blend of domestic and international issues once they become lawyers. As an intellectual matter, the conflicts course presents rich and nuanced doctrine. As a professional matter, every litigator will face issues raised in this course. As a practical matter, an increasing number of students are drawn to the course because it is tested on the bar exam in every state that has adopted the universal bar exam or the multistate essay exam. The authors recognize the need, therefore, to provide appropriate review of civil procedure to allow the student to transition to the study of conflicts. A modern conflicts casebook must be flexible. Some professors will choose to cover a great deal of international and comparative law. Others, however, will prefer to address conflicts only in the domestic sphere. This edition fully supports either (or some middle) approach. The professor may comfortably choose how much international and comparative material to cover without losing transition or context. Some highlights of the fifteenth edition: Chapter 2 has been shortened and honed to drive home the significance of domicile and the complementary concept of habitual residence, including a new note on domicile and devolution of real property. Chapter 3, concerning personal jurisdiction, has been sharpened by trimming notes in light of current developments. There is a new note on "Effects" Jurisdiction, which addresses Calder and Keeton as a prelude the Supreme Court''s most 2014 decision in Walden v. Fiore. In the section on general jurisdiction, Daimler replaces Goodyear as a principal case, and students are invited to consider how the constriction of general jurisdiction may impose increasing demands for expansion of specific jurisdiction. Chapter 4 pulls together everything that bears on limiting a court''s exercise of jurisdiction that it otherwise has. This includes forum selection agreements in interstate and international transactions, antisuit injunctions, dismissals (or denials of motions to dismiss) in cases of parallel litigation (lis pendens) or on the ground of forum non conveniens, and federal transfer. Chapter 5 treats a number of questions often not addressed in depth in the first-year procedure course. For instance: what is a "judgment" for purposes of recognition - administrative decrees, equity decrees, modifiable support orders? How conclusive is a judgment on a second court - comparing Treinies with the 2010 SPEECH Act requiring review of foreign country awards for libel? Does public policy play a different role in the case of foreign than in interstate judgments? Can non-parties benefit or be bound: what about "virtual representation" or non-mutual collateral estoppel? What are the mechanisms for the recognition and enforcement of domestic and of foreign-country judgments in the United States? Chapter 6, concerning the impact of the Constitution, has been streamlined to enhance "teachability." The 2016 opinion in franchise tax Board versus Hyatt is now included as a principal case. Chapters 7 and 8 present the central themes of choice of law. Both have been updated substantially. Chapter 8 has been considerably revised to show the progression from the traditional system, to the height of the conflicts revolution, to a developing consensus to consolidate modern analysis in a manner that provides more predictability and certainty. This revision is designed to give students -- most of whom have little or no familiarity with choice of law doctrine -- a b

Correlation Is Not Causation

Learn How to Avoid the 5 Traps That Even Pros Fall Into

Correlation Is Not Causation. You know it and I know it, and yet we are constantly having to be reminded of it because we can’t seem to help but get it wrong. How many times have you heard someone really smart say something like ‘wow, this correlation has a p-value of 0.000001 so A must be causing B…’? It’s not our fault though – we’re only human. We seek explanation for patterns and events that happen around us, and if something defies logic, we try to find a reason why it might make sense. If something doesn’t add up, we make it up. OK, so if correlation does not necessarily imply causation, there must be a reason for that, and there must be something that is causing what we observe. That is what this book is all about. If we discover a correlation between a pair of variables there are five alternatives to one being the direct cause of the other, and we’ll unmask all five in this book. Then, once we understand each of these alternatives, we’ll formulate a plan to discover whether we have a direct causal link or whether there is some other explanation. Correlation Is Not Causation explains how to systematically test for the five most common correlation-causation pitfalls that even the pros fall into (occasionally). We’ll learn to create strategies to analyse the data and interpret the results in a way that is easy to understand. Best of all, there is no technical or statistical jargon – it is written in plain English. It is packed with visually intuitive examples and makes no assumptions about your previous experience with correlations – in short, it is perfect for beginners!

FREAK BABYLON is a sometimes startling, sometimes disturbing documentary of the history of one of mankind's most fascinating sciences - teratology - and its dubious cultural correlative, the Freakshow, from ancient times to the present day. The book features over 200 rare and intriguing photos of human anomalies and covers the areas of scientific research, sideshows, cinema and body modification. By tracing the history of teratology - the classification of human anomalies - and looking at some famous case histories such as the Elephant Man and Johnny Eck, FREAK BABYLON shows how medical research and exploitation are often interlinked - and poses the question whether new sciences of cloning and genetic engineering are taking us back to the "dark days" of man-made freaks. Bonus features include: "The Elephant Man" by Sir Frederick Treves. Long out-of-print, this is the true account which inspired David Lynch's film of the same name. "Dissection of a Symelian Monster" by R C Benington. A classic illustrated account of an autopsy on a real-life human anomaly, from 1891 medical journals. An in-depth illustrated review of the controversial 1932 horror film Freaks, directed by Tod Browning. Tod Robbins' classic short story "Spurs," which inspired Browning's Freaks.
