Contrary to popular belief, innovation is not some mystical art that's forbidden to mere mortals. The The 4 Lenses of Innovation thoroughly debunks this pervasive myth by delivering what we've long been hoping for: the news that innovation is systematic, it's methodical, and we can all achieve it.

    Meet the challenges of modern living and integrate the teachings of Christ with your everyday life! Being an effective Christian is tough in a world that is increasingly at odds with what you believe. But living at odds with the world is not what Jesus would do.

And how do you communicate the truth about Jesus in a way that everybody can understand? When Jesus walked the earth, He didn't always wait for people to come....

    Everyone has to think in order to function in the world, but what is the best way to reason effectively in your pursuit of reliable beliefs and useful knowledge? What is the best way to prove a case, create a rule, solve a problem, justify an idea, invent a hypothesis, or evaluate an argument? In short, what is the best way to think? Professor Hall helps you cut through deception and faulty reasoning in these 24 humorous, clear, and interesting lectures, offering a friendly but intellectually rigorous approach to the problem of thinking. Among the topics you'll learn about are:. Deduction: This form of reasoning reaches a conclusion based on a set of premises; if the premises are true, then the conclusion necessarily follows.. Induction: Less ironclad than deduction, this approach surveys the evidence and then generalizes an explanation to account for it; the conclusion may be probable, but it is not certain.. Syllogism: This simple but powerful deductive argument offers two premises and a conclusion. An example: "All Greeks are mortals. All Athenians are Greeks. Therefore, all Athenians are mortals.". Dialectic: A question-and-answer dialogue, called dialectic, is valuable for uncovering first principles.. Venn diagrams: This technique uses overlapping circles to represent different classes of objects or ideas in order to clarify a syllogism.Some of the greatest philosophers who ever lived have used these tools to separate ideas that make sense from those that don't. Now you, too, can think more clearly, making better lives for ourselves and for those to come.

    Much like gravity, the law of attraction is a natural law of the universe, and one that governs every interaction you ever have. You can only attract into your experience those things that resonate with you on an emotional and or vibrational level. It is no coincidence that women who marry alcoholics had alcoholic fathers, grandfathers or uncles. What a child experiences in childhood determines that beings emotional set point; their point of attraction.
