Dream-On is a mandate, God breathed word to young and old, male and female – to dream, to be visionary, but most importantly to connect.Imagine a world in sync with the prophetic flowing, the dreamers dreaming and the visionaries casting to light the impossible. God solutions for life and future and purpose. That world is here in the now, challenging our generations of dreamers and visionaries to be dynamic, to manifest the spirit of excellence and to be the best that God wants us to be. Dream On is a vision, a revelation that explores God’s end time call to dreamers and visionaries; you and I, to start dreaming the God dreams and nurturing the next generation to be effective in their roles as visionaries. This book explores the life of Joseph who dared to dream and relentlessly pursued his dream that took him from the pits of slavery, to the house of Potiphar then to the prison dungeons and eventually to the house of Pharaoh and the most important throne in the land; besides Pharaoh’s at least. Despite the betrayal at the hands of his own brothers, Joseph reminded them that God had planned his life for the good for the saving of many lives. Your dreams or visions are meant to influence people around you. In fact, as dreamers and visionaries connect and work their dreams and vision, they will usher in a revival. The winds of revival are blowing across the world and dreamers and visionaries are taking their place in the end-time church, to be vessels that the Lord will use for His greater purposes. This revival will be unlike any other. It will come through visionaries and dreamers connecting with the Holy Spirit and with each other and equipped and used by God to manifest His presence to the world. This end-time revival will not just be in the church, but also in the workplaces, the streets, the communities and even in the most unlikely of places. This Holy Spirit move will bring about new-found boldness amongst believers as they declare the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

What are the conditions that foster true novelty and allow visionaries to set their eyes on unknown horizons? What have been the challenges that have spawned new innovations, and how have they shaped modern biology? In Dreamers, Visionaries, and Revolutionaries in the Life Sciences, editors Oren Harman and Michael R. Dietrich explore these questions through the lives of eighteen exemplary biologists who had grand and often radical ideas that went far beyond the run-of-the-mill science of their peers. From the Frenchman Jean-Baptiste Lamarck, who coined the word “biology” in the early nineteenth century, to the American James Lovelock, for whom the Earth is a living, breathing organism, these dreamers innovated in ways that forced their contemporaries to reexamine comfortable truths. With this collection readers will follow Jane Goodall into the hidden world of apes in African jungles and Francis Crick as he attacks the problem of consciousness. Join Mary Lasker on her campaign to conquer cancer and follow geneticist George Church as he dreams of bringing back woolly mammoths and Neanderthals. In these lives and the many others featured in these pages, we discover visions that were sometimes fantastical, quixotic, and even threatening and destabilizing, but always a challenge to the status quo.

The overall aim of this volume is to present the research studies carried out in the Middle East and Asia in the fields of culture and gender and their influence on leadership in particular.

The chapter authors use detailed descriptions, case studies and vignettes to speak to the cultural relativism and gender in leadership in these countries and provide a unique and comparative perspective drawn from their own cultures. This volume also contributes to the development of theory and empirical research found in these regions and through the collective efforts presented in this book, attempts to strengthen the body of knowledge and practice in the fields of culture and gender in leadership. As Asia is becoming the engine of economic growth for the world and Arab Spring is opening up new vistas in the Middle East, this book is a must read.

There are many things that make up a great leader. The ability to motivate, to see the big picture, to delegate. But perhaps just as important, if not more so, is the leader's emotional intelligence (EQ). How we feel impacts how we lead, and how those we lead feel about themselves when they're around us affects how well they follow our leadership. It follows then that if we want to be the most effective leaders, we must be emotionally mature. In this practical book, church leadership expert Aubrey Malphurs shows church and ministry leaders how to assess, understand, and improve both their own EQ and that of their followers, so that they can inspire the very best in their churches and organizations.

In Janelle Monáe's full-length debut, the science fiction concept album The ArchAndroid, the android Cindi Mayweather is on the run from the authorities for the crime of loving a human. Living in 28th century Metropolis, Cindi fights for survival, soon realizing that she is in fact the prophesied ArchAndroid, a robot messiah meant to liberate the masses and lead them toward a wonderland where all can be free. Taking into account the literary merit of Monáe's astounding multimedia body of work, the political relevance of the science fictional themes and aesthetics she explores, and her role as an Atlanta-based pop cultural juggernaut, this book explores the lavish world building of Cindi's story, and the many literary, cinematic, and musical influences brought together to create it. Throughout, a history of Monáe's move to Atlanta, her signing with Bad Boy Records, and the trials of developing a full-length concept album in an industry devoted to the production of marketable singles can be found, charting the artist's own rise to power. The stories of Monáe and of Cindi are inextricably entwined, each making the other more compelling, fantastical, and deeply felt.
