New York Times bestselling author of The Songs of Jesus Timothy Keller shows how God calls on each of us to express meaning and purpose through our work and careers. Tim Keller, pastor of New York’s Redeemer Presbyterian Church and the New York Times bestselling author of The Reason for God, has taught and counseled students, young professionals, and senior leaders on the subject of work and calling for more than twenty years. Now he pulls his insights into a thoughtful and practical book for readers everywhere. With deep conviction and often surprising advice, Keller shows readers that biblical wisdom is immensely relevant to our questions about work today. In fact, the Christian view of work—that we work to serve others, not ourselves—can provide the foundation of a thriving professional and balanced personal life. Keller shows how excellence, integrity, discipline, creativity, and passion in the workplace can help others and even be considered acts of worship—not just of self-interest.

Functional brain mapping has by now gained a high impact on research and clinical practice: huge funds are unveiled all over the world in order to boost the research and clinical applications of this field of neuroscience. The most successful approach to unlock the mysteries of the brain, to tell it with Jay Ingram, is to bring together an interdisciplinary network of scientists and clinicians and encourage an interchange of ideas. It is this crossfire we try to promote with this book.

Hydrographic data collected during R/V Endeavor cruise 143 is presented as a preliminary study of subduction in the northeast Atlantic south of the Azores Front. The front is clearly defined at the northern end of CTD section #1 which also shows a layer of 16-18°C water subducted to the south. Section #2, 280 km to the east, is dominated by a large cyclonic ring with characteristics similar to 'eastern' rings reported earlier . An anomalously salty parcel of Mediterranean water in this section is typical of highly saline lenses seen in the Canary Basin.

Leadership as Service

Farnsworth argues that an imbalance of power exists in higher education that favors internal self-interests over student development and public service, an imbalance that has eroded the rigor and efficacy of the undergraduate curriculum. If higher education is to serve all who must benefit from its programs and services, presidents and senior administrators must restore this balance, and must effectively represent the interests of students and society as a whole. This book offers critical information for faculty and administrators alike, Leadership as Service reframes an agenda for higher education, challenging presidents to give voice to those who are now underserved, and restore the primacy of teaching and learning within the academy. This provocative and readable discussion of leadership in higher education argues that leadership is essentially an act of service; that the more responsible the leadership position, the greater the responsibility to serve. Weaving together the Servant Leadership philosophy of Robert Greenleaf with the management principles of Mary Parker Follett, Kent Farnsworth, presents a model for 21st- century educational leadership that calls upon college administrators to see themselves as servants first. He argues that the voices and interests of many of education's key stakeholders--students, employers, and society as a whole--have been marginalized by a consolidation of power in the faculty, requiring a bold new approach to leadership that refocuses service to these important, but underrepresented constituents. Farnsworth argues that college and universities have yielded too much power to special interests within the academy. The result has been a shift in resources to elaborate facilities and overblown graduate and research agendas, eroding the rigor and integrity of the undergraduate curriculum. Leadership as Service outlines a new, service-driven agenda of higher education and describes the characteristics of those who will successfully lead in the new century.

Ideal as a stand alone supplement in any science course, The Scientific Endeavor creates a framework for students' future coursework in the sciences by discussing what science is and how it is done. Presenting all of the major topics and basic underpinnings of science in a clear, simplified manner, the book provides a generic view that isn't tied to any specific discipline. Students develop "scientific literacy" that will help them better understand and appreciate their mainstream science courses.

Following on the Government's decision to permit, in principle, the commercial cultivation of genetically modified (GM) crops in the UK, this report examines the areas in which consultation on the planting regime to be used should concentrate. These are primarily, the level at which the threshold for contamination of GM crops in non-GM or organic crops should be set, and how liability for contamination should be approached. Findings include that, as there is no immediate prospect of commercial cultivation of GM maize, and as there is a lack of demand from consumers for GM products, the Government is no longer under tight time constraints for rapid resolution of these issues. However, now that the Europe-wide moratorium on new GM food, feed and crops has been lifted, it is important to establish co-existence and liability regimes. Earlier reports by the Committee on the use of genetically modified crops in the UK were published in June 2002 (HCP 767, session 2001-02, ISBN 0215003764) and November 2003 (HCP 1220, session 2002-03, ISBN 0215013891).
