In today's world, we hear much talk about legacy. There seems to be immeasurable concern about what others will remember about us when our lives are complete. How can we be certain that we will be remembered in positive ways? Should we leave money for a building to be named after us? Is it necessary to be extremely wealthy or famous? Maybe. Our true bequest will be in the lives that we touch and change. The simplest of actions, a smile or personal interest in someone, can be life changing for that person. This book takes a look at such a life. Not a perfect life. A life lived increasingly to the glory of God. And when it was over, the legacy was one of joy and respect. Now that is something to strive for!
This book takes a simple look at what it means to live in a city. It examines what you can find in a city, why people choose to live there, and the risks people might have because of living in a city, such as pollution. The book also looks at how people adapt to living in cities and the different things people can do in their daily lives, from working in a skyscraper to visiting the zoo!
This book tells the story behind President Franklin D. Roosevelt's use of the phrase "living wage" in a variety of speeches, letters, and statements, and examines the degree to which programs of the New Deal reflected the ideas of a living wage movement that existed in the US for almost three decades before Roosevelt was elected president. Far from being a side issue, the previously unexplored living wage debate sheds light on the New Deal philosophy of social justice by identifying the value judgments behind its policies. Moving chronologically through history, this book's highlights include the revelation of a living wage agenda under the War Industry Board (WIB)'s National War Labor Board (NWLB) during World War I, the unearthing of long-forgotten literature from the 1920s and 30s that formed the foundation of Roosevelt's statements on a living wage, and the examination of contemporary studies that used a simple living wage formula combining collective bargaining, social insurance, and minimum wage as a standard for social justice used to measure the impact of New Deal polices.
I am from Taiwan. I got my PhD in Physics at University of Colorado at Boulder in 1984. I have been trying to decode the Diamond Sutra since 1988. I did not have luck until October, 2013. This book is my first edition in English. I belong to the same branch of Zen, Hui-neng, Buddhism as late D.T. Suzuki, late Steve Jobs, Phil Jackson, and one of the Asia richest man, Sir Ka-shing Li. This branch of Zen Buddhism believes that everyone's Buddha nature can be displayed through daily life. The fundamental belief of my Zen Buddhism is that everyone's Buddha nature, self nature, is embedded with the universal law of cause and effect. The strong part of my Zen Buddhism is that our Buddha nature, self nature, has unlimited capabilities. Every record that can be written, spoken, and seen will be broken by somebody else through his or her Buddha nature. Another belief which separates my branch of Zen Buddhism from other religions is non-attachment. Non-attachment is to avoid conflict of interest to begin with. It is fair for all beings. My branch Zen Buddhism believes that Everyone's Buddha nature can be displayed by thinking and actions. If you do voluntary work without attachment of benefiting yourself, then your Buddha nature, self nature, will be displayed. If you do voluntary work with attachment of benefiting yourself, then your Buddha nature, self nature, will not be displayed. Jeryuan Luo Sunnyvale, California, June, 2016
