Ethnic Community Builders: Mexican Americans in Search of Justice and Power is an oral history of Mexican American activism in San Jose, California, over the past half century. The authors present interviews of fourteen people of various stripes - teachers, politicians, radio personalities - who have been influential in the development of a major urban center with a significant ethnic population. These activists tell the stories of their lives and work with openness and honesty, allowing readers to witness their achievements and failures. This vivid ethnography of a Mexican American community serves as a model for activism wherever ethnic groups seek change and justice.
Atop a 400 million year old monadknock outside of Atlanta Georgia called Arabia Mountain, wandering Bishops, occultists, mystics, and adepts of a multitude of traditions, link arms in mutual aid and support of each other while administering the mysterious points-chauds empowerments and performing various workings of the clergy of the Gnostic Church. Operating under the inclusive banner of Free Illuminism, these individuals from all walks of life work a progressive form of initiation by linking the points empowerments with the Antient & Primitive Rite of Memphis+Misriam, as expressed by the 1921-22 Ecclesiastical Revision of the Rite. Each individual empowered from the Arabia Mountain workings is free to develop and research the mysteries of the points and their alignments to this progressive arm of Freemasonry. This book is the result of such exploration. +PALAMAS, working with his companion in the mysteries and wife, SALOME+, has merged together the two worlds of the Voudon Gnostic inspired points-chauds empowerments with the degrees of the Rites of Memphis & Misraim in an innovative and unique system that is fully workable and expresses the living tradition that stems from Arabia Mountain. The approach is spiritist and the manner of Masonry propounded is mystical. The sincere individual that explores this powerful path will have access to the supersensual realms and encounter entities and energies that are consciousness expanding and life altering. In a single tome +PALAMAS has provided an introduction to the movement and practice of Free Illuminism, created an inspired three degree system that unfolds the Sacred Doctrine of Memphis+Misraim, and revealed an operative and spiritist ritual monitor and guide for working all 97 degrees.

Quantum Networks is focused on density matrix theory cast into a product operator representation, particularly adapted to describing networks of finite state subsystems. This approach is important for understanding non-classical aspects such as single subsystem and multi-subsystem entanglement. An intuitive picture evolves of how these features are generated and destroyed by interactions with the environment. This second edition has been revised and enlarged. For better clarity the text has been partly reorganized and figures and formulae are presented in a more attractive way.
