Marriage can make possible an interaction of two personalities at greater depth and intimacy than is possible in any other relationship except in early childhood. For this reason it has great potential for psychological and biological growth and for creative achievement, and for the opposite. It offers an opportunity for self-realization through relationship with another that can come from no other kind of personal involvement except, perhaps, from vocation in its fullest sense.
Within the family, of which the marital relationship is the core, the past is recapitulated.
Mr Baker’s marriage
Mr Baker’s marriage had been unhappy almost from the start, and he had sought help, over the years, from almost every agency and clinic in his area. At the time of the referral he had been married for nine and a half years and had two children, the first conceived before marriage. He complained of his wife’s behaviour with other men and of his own headaches and insomnia. His wife complained of her husband’s jealousy and suspicion, and of his violence towards her. She had been refusing intercourse for some months and was daily threatening to leave.See All Chapters

Kên is one of the eight hexagrams formed by doubling a primary trigram, in this case Kên, Keeping Still, Mountain. When trigrams are doubled, we recognize a two-fold emphasis, the lower trigram representing a more physical or materialistic focus and the upper trigram representing a more thoughtful or spiritual focus. Of course, these are simply two expressions of a single idea, but it can help at times to have the idea illustrated in different modes. Keeping still physically means quietening the body, slowing down, perhaps actually stopping, becoming like a mountain, broad-based, rooted, solid. Keeping still mentally or spiritually means quietening the mind, slowing the endless streams of thought that assail us continuously with fears about the past or the future, imaginings that prevent us from experiencing the stillness at the heart of the present moment.See All Chapters

Beginning at the beginning is not always what a reader needs. Here are some areas that you might want to check out first.
Note: Numbers Tutorial also shows how Numbers features work together, something I can’t do in the main chapters, because each necessarily explores only one topic.See All Chapters

An Extremely Brief Introduction to Security Concepts
An Overview of OpenPGPand S/MIME
Combining Security and MIME
The OpenPGP Format
The S/MIME Format
As the Internet grows to reach a mass audience, it is put to new uses. Electronic mail has emerged as a fundamental enabling technology for personal messaging. Important among these new uses are personal data interchange (PDI) and electronic commerce. Email may be used to communicate and authenticate one's desires (ecommerce) or rapidly exchange formatted directory information (PDI). This chapter looks at options for securing email so that it may better support electronic commerce. The next chapter will discuss the first of these endeavors likely to become standard: the vCard PDI format.
Several of these emerging standards are being addressed and assisted by the Internet Mail Consortium (IMC), an industry body that promotes email-related standards and the broader uses of email for new activities. IMC members include the usual messaging crew: IBM, Microsoft, Netscape, Sun, Nokia, Qualcomm, and many others.See All Chapters

Implementing Knockout involves three distinct things: a view that contains HTML and CSS elements that get data-bound to it, a ViewModel that contains the data to bind to the view, and telling Knockout to perform the data binding to the view with the ViewModel.
The examples in this chapter demonstrate how to create an HTML page with a basic ViewModel. After we review the basic data binding syntax, we will explore the various types of ViewModels that work with the view.See All Chapters
