delicate attitude are not so much advocating qualities native to women but for attitudes still repressed by society. That in turn suggests society itself needs exploring rather than sex differences per se, which is indeed a view more recognized in contemporary feminist studies. Second Wave Feminism, also called The Feminist Movement, or the Women's Liberation Movement, is a period of feminist activity in the United States which began during the early 1960s and lasted through the late 1990s. Whereas first-wave feminism focused mainly on overturning legal obstacles to gender equality (i.e. voting rights, property rights), second-wave feminism broadened the debate to a wide range of issues: sexuality, family, the workplace, reproductive rights, de facto inequalities, and official legal inequalities. Second Wave Feminism radically changed the face of western culture, leading to

and he offered to sell me his truck cheap." "What year is it?" I could see from his change of expression that this was the question he was hoping I wouldn't ask. "Well, Billy's done a lot of work on the engine -- it's only a few years old, really." I hoped he didn't think so little of me as to believe I would give up that easily. "When did he buy it?" "He bought it in 1984, I think." "Did he buy it new?" "Well, no. I think it was new in the early sixties -- or late fifties at the earliest," he admitted sheepishly. "Ch -- Dad, I don't really know anything about cars. I wouldn't be able to fix it if anything went wrong, and I couldn't afford a mechanic..." "Really, Bella, the thing runs great. They don't build them like that anymore." The thing, I thought to myself... it had possibilities -- as a nickname, at the very least. "How cheap is cheap?"

winning a battle or making possible a diplomatic coup or whatever happened if, as was usual, other factors played a role. Narratives which make it appear as if every event in history turned upon the subject under discussion are not history but journalism. They are especially prevalent in spy stories, and cryptology is not immune. The only other book-length attempt to survey the history of cryptology, the late Fletcher Pratt's Secret and Urgent, published in 1939, suffers from a severe case of this special pleading. Pratt writes thrillingly—perhaps for that very reason—but his failure to consider the other factors, together with his errors and omissions, his false generalizations based on no evidence, and his unfortunate predilection for inventing facts vitiate his work as any kind of a history. (Finding this out was disillusioning, for it was this
More praise for Influence: Science and Practice! "We've known for years that people buy based on emotions and justify their buying decision based on logic.

The darker tricks of the trade in supplements and sports nutrition--clouding results of "clinical trials" and creative labeling as just two examples--are nearly the same as in biotech "clinical trials" and creative labeling as just two examples--are nearly the same as in biotech and Big Pharma. I will teach you to spot bad science, and therefore bad advice and bad products.4 Late one evening in the fall of 2009, I sat eating cassoulet and duck legs with Dr. Lee Wolfer in the clouds of fog known as San Francisco. The wine was owing, and I told her of my fantasies to return to a Berkeley or Stanford and pursue a doctorate in the biological sciences. I was brie y a neuroscience major at Princeton University and dreamed of a PhD at the end of my name. Lee is regularly published in peer-reviewed journals and has been trained at some of
criticise him who talks a lot. They even criticise him who speaks in moderation. There is not a man in the world who is not criticised. (Dhammapada, Adage 227). A spiritual level and erudition in the arts, the ability to recognise and evaluate existing high artistic qualities is essential. The more the listener searches for the sublime spiritual germ in music and is able discover and evaluate it all, the more competent and objective they will become. I must thank the late Professor Leo Normet, PhD, of the Estonian Academy of Music for his advice and assistance in my use of English musicological expressions. Professor Roman Toi, PhD, of the Royal Conservatory of Toronto; Doctor Ea Jansen of The Institute of History at Tallinn University for their valuable opinions; Professors Margus Pärtlas and Eino Tamberg of the Estonian Academy of Music and Maris Männik-Kirme of Tallinn University for their useful remarks.
