Past, present, and future is what this book documents and reveals about higher education in South Africa. Because place and space have contextual effects, the story of university education is told through the experiences of two schools - the University of Fort Hare and the University of the North; they are both similar and different.
An awful tragedy disrupted the otherwise peaceful life of Jim Morris, a repairman at a roofing and siding company in Missouri. His young daughter, Ruth, died after being hit by a car when she ran into the street to chase after a ball she had thrown to the family dog. Jim tries to cope with his grief, but the grief, along with the regret about what he had been doing just before Ruth had been hit, haunts him. Odd changes, however, begin to occur at Jim's company. A young man named Mike, fresh from high school, gets a job there. Young Mike is more than he seems. He is a reversal engineer who specializes in changing the past. Mike's scientific expertise allows him to change past circumstances so that Ruth does not die, but reversal engineering is a new scientific discipline and Mike has yet to work out all of the glitches. Changing one circumstance often leads to a breakdown in others. Can reversal engineering be refined so that Jim's wish to have his daughter back comes true without consequences? Or, will this new technology actually make matters worse?

This study explores the family unit as a crucial aspect of Latina/o college-going - an aspect far more important than previously asserted through research - as well as the emotions, expectations, negotiations made as the realm of possibility changes. Through the narratives told of each family, we see the negotiation of various events, and weaved through all are the complex emotions and perceptions caused by the context and process themselves. This study adds to the growing number of studies focusing on Latina/o college-going that use familial capital and other forms of knowing by discussing this process as one in which the family expectations and perceptions are incorporated. Given the need for a re-conceptualization of Latina/o college- going and the methodological gap in research design, this phenomenological study contributes to the field by asking direct questions regarding the experience of the family unit through the college-going process. As scholars, thinkers, and individuals charged with the responsibility to develop a full understanding of phenomenon, we owe it to our communities to thoroughly investigate the CGP and create pathways through which to increase college-going.
Paul Tillich, theologian, and Charles Hartshorne, philosopher, both exemplify in their respective ways new types of theism "alternative" to models of the relation of theology and philosophy, faith and reason, influenced by Immanuel Kant and scientific positivism. This study shows how their views of the way God is known, of what is meant by -God, - and of God's relation to the world, can support a vital religious faith today. This is so, this study suggests, without abandoning the -modern- commitment to critical inquiry when this is chastened by a constructive sense of -postmodern- irony."

"In Uncharted, internationally acclaimed intuitive counselor and "spiritual cartographer" Colette Baron Reid, whose best-selling books include The Map and Messages from Spirit, shows us that in the new normal of uncertainty, we can overcome the challenge of feeling disoriented, scared, and helpless and chart a path to new possibilities. It's in the places unfamiliar to us--the uncharted places--where magic lies. Here we can claim our innate power to give birth to an extraordinary life and become who we are called to become. Colette explains, "When we're lost, we all want a map--but maps can only tell us where we've been." All of us, personally and collectively, are headed somewhere new, to a future that has not yet been imagined, and we're creating it as we go. With her trademark compassionate candor and reassuring humor, as well as input from a wise, loving consciousness who call themselves "Fred," Colette guides us on a journey of co-creation through five interconnected realms--the Realms of Spirit, Mind, Light, and Energy, Form. Whatever we wish to experience and manifest, if we start in the realm of Form, trying to fix our lives and think our way out of our problems, we end up living inauthentically and feeling disappointed. But if we orient ourselves in the Realm of Spirit first, a magical process of transformation begins within, from which we can manifest a new reality far better than we might ever have imagined. Following this path, we get to experience what we came to create in the Realm of Form, and watch as our fear gives way to a deep sense of purpose and enthusiasm for participating in the co-creative process. Throughout Uncharted are fresh and exciting exercises drawn from Colette's trademarked energy psychology process, IN-Vizion
