              The Power of Cute
               

              The Power of Cute (EPUB ebook)

              By May, Simon

              An exploration of cuteness and its immense hold on us, from emojis and fluffy puppies to its more uncanny, subversive expressionsCuteness has taken the planet by storm. Global sensations Hello Kitty and Pokemon, the works of artists Takashi Murakami and Jeff Koons, Heidi the cros...s-eyed opossum and E.T.-all reflect its gathering power. But what does "cute" mean, as a sensibility and style? Why is it so pervasive? Is it all infantile fluff, or is there something more uncanny and even menacing going on-in a lighthearted way? In The Power of Cute, Simon May provides nuanced and surprising answers.We usually see the cute as merely diminutive, harmless, and helpless. May challenges this prevailing perspective, investigating everything from Mickey Mouse to Kim Jong-il to argue that cuteness is not restricted to such sweet qualities but also beguiles us by transforming or distorting them into something of playfully indeterminate power, gender, age, morality, and even species. May grapples with cuteness's dark and unpindownable side-unnerving, artful, knowing, apprehensive-elements that have fascinated since ancient times through mythical figures, especially hybrids like the hermaphrodite and the sphinx. He argues that cuteness is an addictive antidote to today's pressured expectations of knowing our purpose, being in charge, and appearing predictable, transparent, and sincere. Instead, it frivolously expresses the uncertainty that these norms deny: the ineliminable uncertainty of who we are; of how much we can control and know; of who, in our relations with others, really has power; indeed, of the very value and purpose of power.The Power of Cute delves into a phenomenon that speaks with strange force to our age.

              Philosophy of Physics: Quantum Theory
               

              Philosophy of Physics: Quantum Theory (EPUB ebook)

              By Maudlin, Tim

              A sophisticated and original introduction to the philosophy of quantum mechanics from one of the world's leading philosophers of physicsIn this book, Tim Maudlin, one of the world's leading philosophers of physics, offers a sophisticated, original introduction to the philosophy o...f quantum mechanics. The briefest, clearest, and most refined account of his influential approach to the subject, the book will be invaluable to all students of philosophy and physics.Quantum mechanics holds a unique place in the history of physics. It has produced the most accurate predictions of any scientific theory, but, more astonishing, there has never been any agreement about what the theory implies about physical reality. Maudlin argues that the very term "quantum theory" is a misnomer. A proper physical theory should clearly describe what is there and what it does-yet standard textbooks present quantum mechanics as a predictive recipe in search of a physical theory.In contrast, Maudlin explores three proper theories that recover the quantum predictions: the indeterministic wavefunction collapse theory of Ghirardi, Rimini, and Weber; the deterministic particle theory of deBroglie and Bohm; and the conceptually challenging Many Worlds theory of Everett. Each offers a radically different proposal for the nature of physical reality, but Maudlin shows that none of them are what they are generally taken to be.

              A trip to Vegas...A gorgeous man...A beautiful woman...What could go wrong?When a struggling actress takes a role as the glamorous temporary wife of a wealthy playboy, she finds love doesn't always come on cue.Struggling actress Kate Carluccio showed up for her wedding but her gr...oom bowed out without warning. He absconded not only with her heart, but also her parents' life savings. Her confidence shaken, Kate's determined to find a way to restore her parents' money. Then she's offered the role of a lifetime: step out of her colorful high-top sneakers and into the glammed-up role of socialite wife to a shallow, annoying playboy. If only Kate wasn't also secretly attracted to him, the one-and-a-half million dollars he offers with his proposal of a marriage-of-convenience might be easier to accept.Breathtakingly handsome, super rich, and sophisticated with a bad boy vibe, Zach Lyon is a tabloid favorite. He may be a vice-president at his father's company, but up until now he's just played a supporting role. But when he discovers two executives are conspiring to force his dad out and take over the company, Zach decides it's time to step into the spotlight. What better way than to take a glamorous new wife to Las Vegas to spend the Christmas holiday at the home of one of the conspiring executives?As the curtain rises on the eclectic house party, Kate and Zach play their roles against the backdrop of schemers and snobs, while hiding deep secrets of their own. Can Kate pretend to love Zach without revealing the true depth of her attraction? Can Zach prove to his father he has the stability to go from understudy to leading man? They may have wedded on a dare, but with the stage set for romance, their marriage-of-convenience might just turn into a marriage-to-last-a-lifetime.

              Distractions are insidious time thieves to some. They are liberating wealth builders for others. Like money, a distraction is a medium. It brings results of its task depending on the users motive. Some are harmless. Some are destructive life patterns that lead to poverty and want.... Some bring unmeasurable power and wealth. In this literature I want to challenge my readers to identify and evaluate their distractions. Are you distracting or being distracted?When a person is honest with themselves about their time and efforts, they can truly unlock their best life . Like most things in life, this is a choice. I want to caution the masses to reset their distracted patterns before it is too late. Too many are going to their graves with debt and defeat. I attribute this to falling victim to distraction and it's deceit.
