The 1 000 Genome

Since the conclusion of the Human Genome Project in 2003, scientists have been racing towards a grand goal: offering individuals a decoding of their complete genetic makeup for just $1,000. As Kevin Davies reveals in this exquisitely reported account, the $1,000 genome will be a reality by 2011 and it will usher in a whole new era of personalized, genomic medicine. Capable of presenting much more advanced information than the current crop of cheek-swab services, the $1,000 complete genome raises some extraordinary possibilities. We will be able to learn if we have genes that predispose us to a host of diseases, and to take a wide range of preventative measures. Drug companies may be able to create versions of drugs tailored specifically to our individual DNA. But we may also face the psychological burden of learning that we have the gene for an incurable disease, such as Parkinson’s. Acclaimed author Kevin Davies introduces the pioneers of this medical revolution and probes deeply into both the medical benefits and ethical issues of personal genetic testing, also exploring the psychological complexities of learning one’s DNA results, based on both his own experience of being tested and that of a number of others. The $1,000 Genome is an indispensable guide to the new era of personalized medicine.

There's a significant movement going on throughout the world: young people serving in solidarity with the poorest of the poor. This movement shares values and goals with ancient monastic and missional orders known as friars. But pouring yourself out in humble service looks different in every era. Scott Bessenecker looks at the new friars in the context of the old, inspiring us to look at the world differently: every person, regardless of station, is our brother or sister, and our love for God must translate into love for them. Market/Audience Mission and evangelism organizations Missionaries Urbana 06 attendees Young adults Endorsements "Scott Bessenecker has taken the risk (or fallen to the temptation!) of putting words to a stirring of the Spirit that is both fresh and ancient. His brilliant work is a celebration of the new things God is doing, while locating these movements humbly throughout church history, as the simple renewals that the Spirit seems to bring over and over on the margins of empires and markets that threaten to infect and colonize the Christian identity. But be careful neither to hail these ragamuffin disciples as celebrities or to dismiss them as saints. Rather, allow their lives to challenge us to rethink what it means to be Christian. After all, the very fact that they seem radical or odd may only be an indictment on the sort of Christianity we have become accustomed to." Shane Claiborne, founding member of The Simple Way, and author of The Irresistible Revolution Features and Benefits Surveys significant social justice movements throughout the world that share values and goals with ancient monastic and missional orders. Shares stories of remarkable missionary efforts.

WHY YOU SHOULD READ THIS BOOK Everybody wants to know Mark Zuckerberg. Young people adore very inch of this intelligent fellow. Girls would die for an hour with him (Sorry, Pricilla). Everyone -- just everyone wants a piece of him. Well, after all, the world is swarmed by1.5 billion Digital Natives and Immigrants who make use of Facebook, the company he founded inside his cramped dorm-size room.Then here comes Elon Reeve Musk climbing up the ladder of the most influential and successful people to date. His name is already permanently imprinted on Forbes Magazine. Not only does he juggle leading and running today's biggest companies (note: plural form), but this guy is literally going for the moon--err, Mars, actually. Mr. Musk does not aim to conquer the world with his brilliance, ingenuity, and enormous confidence in human capabilities, but he is aiming to conquer the universe. To say that this man dares to push the envelope of the human knowledge is an understatement. Fédération Aéronautique Internationale, the sole governing body for the ultimate aerospace records, has awarded Musk with FAI Gold Space Medal. This is the same awarded that Astronaut Neil Armstrong. To know the reason behind this award, you simply have to flip one chapter after the other. This book illustrates how Elon Musk is thriving to satisfy everyone's futuristic fancies. This is not to hail him as the best man who ever worked on the face of the earth, but to prove his authenticity as a genius and as a man of vision.

For all the Christians facing conflict between JesusÆ words and their own lives, for all the non-Christians who feel they rarely see JesusÆ commands reflected in the choices of his followers, Red Letter Revolution is a blueprint for a new kind of Christianity, one consciously centered on the words of Jesus, the BibleÆs ôred letters.ö Framed as a captivating dialogue between Shane Claiborne, a progressive young evangelical, and Tony Campolo, a seasoned pastor and professor of sociology, Red Letter Revolution is a life-altering manifesto for skeptics and Christians alike. It is a call to a lifestyle that considers first and foremost JesusÆ explicit, liberating message of sacrificial love. Shane and Tony candidly bring the words of Jesus to bear on contemporary issues of violence, community, Islam, hell, sexuality, civil disobedience, and twenty other critical topics for people of faith and conscience today. The resulting conversations reveal the striking truth that Christians guided unequivocally by the words of Jesus will frequently reach conclusions utterly contrary to those of mainstream evangelical Christianity. If the Jesus who speaks to you through the Gospels is at odds with the Christian culture you know, if you have ever wanted to stand up and say, ôI love Jesus, but thatÆs not me,ö Red Letter Revolution will prove that you are not aloneùyou may have been a Red Letter Christian all along. Endorsements: ôThis book, by a young and an elderly Christian, will help you decide how we Christians could change the world if we took the æred letterÆ words of Jesus literally and seriously.ö ùPresident Jimmy Carter ôIn Red Letter Revolution the uncompromised truth of Jesus' teachings are given voice by two modern-day Christian leaders who do more than preach this Good News. They walk the talk and lead the way.ö ùArchbishop Desmond Tutu ôI started reading this book and couldn't stop. . . . Thank you, Tony and Shane. Thank you for this book. May the movement spread around the world.ö ùAbuna Elias Chacour,?Melkite Catholic Archbishop of Galilee ôRed Letter Revolution is an adrenaline-producing conversation with prophetic bite.ö ùEugene H. Peterson, author of The Message Bible ôI cannot over-emphasize or exaggerate the richness of this book.ö ùPhyllis Tickle, author of Emergence Christianity ôIn this courageous and well crafted book, we have a return to the core message of the Gospel from two Christians who first tried to live it themselvesùand only then spoke." ùFr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation ôShane Claiborne and Tony Campolo are two of the most significant prophetic voices in the Christian world.ö ùRabbi Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun Magazine (tikkun.org) ôThis is a must-read book for anyone who is seeking to take JesusÆ call on their lives seriously.ö ùJim Wallis, founder and editor of Sojourners magazine ôIf you ever wished you could eavesdrop on a conversation with two of the world's most interesting and inspiring Christians, just turn to page one.ö ùBrian D.

An urgent and accessible handbook for peaceful protesters, activists, and community organizers—anyone trying to defend their rights, hold their government accountable, or change the world Blueprint for Revolution will teach you how to • make oppression backfire by playing your opponents’ strongest card against them • identify the “almighty pillars of power” in order to shift the balance of control • dream big, but start small: learn how to pick battles you can win • listen to what people actually care about in order to incorporate their needs into your revolutionary vision • master the art of compromise to bring together even the most disparate groups • recognize your allies and view your enemies as potential partners • use humor to make yourself heard, defuse potentially violent situations, and “laugh your way to victory” Praise for Blueprint for Revolution “The title is no exaggeration. Otpor’s methods . . . have been adopted by democracy movements around the world. The Egyptian opposition used them to topple Hosni Mubarak. In Lebanon, the Serbs helped the Cedar Revolution extricate the country from Syrian control. In Maldives, their methods were the key to overthrowing a dictator who had held power for thirty years. In many other countries, people have used what Canvas teaches to accomplish other political goals, such as fighting corruption or protecting the environment.”—The New York Times “A clear, well-constructed, and easily applicable set of principles for any David facing any Goliath (sans slingshot, of course) . . . By the end of Blueprint, the idea that a punch is no match for a punch line feels like anything but a joke.”—The Boston Globe “An entertaining primer on the theory and practice of peaceful protest.”—The Guardian “With this wonderful book, Srdja Popovic is inspiring ordinary people facing injustice and oppression to use this tool kit to challenge their oppressors and create something much better. When I was growing up, we dreamed that young people could bring down those who misused their power and create a more just and democratic society. For Srdja Popovic, living in Belgrade in 1998, this same dream was potentially a much more dangerous idea. But with an extraordinarily courageous group of students that formed Otpor!, Srdja used imagination, invention, cunning, and lots of humor to create a movement that not only succeeded in toppling the brutal dictator Slobodan Milošević but has become a blueprint for nonviolent revolution around the world. Srdja rules!”—Peter Gabriel “Blueprint for Revolution is not only a spirited guide to changing the world but a breakthrough in the annals of advice for those who seek justice and democracy. It asks (and not heavy-handedly): As long as you want to change the world, why not do it joyfully? It’s not just funny. It’s seriously funny. No joke.”—Todd Gitlin, author of The Sixties and Occupy Nation
