Cinzia Padovani takes an in-depth look at Italian public service broadcasting, covering its history, its role in Italian society, its relationship to the political party system, and its influence on cultural and linguistic unification in Italy. Tracing the history and development of Italian public television broadcaster Radiotelevisione Italiana (RAI) to the present, Padovani challenges traditional views by asserting that parties' 'interference' in RAI has, at times, strengthened the role of public service broadcasting and that partisan journalism has even enhanced democratic potential.

Metal detecting is easy -- you only need to put the search head in the right place to make great treasure findsThe less easy part is deciding where to put the search head! Research will help the decision but even then you will probably be detecting a very large area of land with a pitifully small search head. Conventional wisdom says that you would have to cover every square inch of a site with a metal detector to be sure of finding all treasure within detection range. This takes a lot of time. Now and again sites are available long enough to be able to complete a thorough search but in most cases they are not. The plough comes along, turns the ground over and you are back to square one! Or the tide comes in, turns the beach over and you are back to square one!But how do you put the search head in the right place?Savvy treasure hunters know that there are natural attractive forces anyone can tap into that will drive you and your metal detector to where treasure lies buried. The basically free technology you can use to exploit these attractive forces is given several names but most commonly it is called dowsing. Once you add dowsing to your treasure hunting arsenal you'll wonder how you ever managed without it. As you quickly learn to apply the technology discussed in this manual, your finds rate will rapidly increase beyond recognition...Faithful Attraction: How to Drive Your Metal Detector to Find TreasureWith over 40 years experience in metal detecting and treasure hunting, the author, David Villanueva, recognized the problem many years ago. Most of the time there is only a small window of opportunity in which to recover treasure. To be consistently successful you need to get in there fast, dig the treasure up and move on to the next site. Rinse and repeat! More than 20 years ago, David discovered part of the answer, when he met British dowser and treasure hunter Jim Longton. Since then practice in the field and exchanges with other successful treasure hunters have resulted in refined technology to the point that David is regularly finding treasure. This book shows you clearly and concisely how, for almost no cost, you too can easily develop your own faithful attraction to treasure.Contents include:1. Introduction2. How Does Dowsing Work3.

Understanding, Healing, and Preventing Affairs in Christian Marriages
Author: Henry Virkler
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
ADULTERY Recognizing the Signs Stopping It Before It Starts Recovering from the Damage One-half of the young and middle-aged couples in this country will at some time struggle with the painful and destructive results of an affair. Can these marriages be saved? Can the number of shaken marriages be reduced? Psychologist and counselor Henry Virkler has some answers. In this vital book he describes the devastating effects of adultery, how couples can take preventive steps to reduce the likelihood of it happening in their own marriages, and what to do if it does happen. He writes for professional counselors, for pastors, and for those laypersons who find themselves wanting to understand the situation better. While the author is a committed Christian psychologist and counselor, he warns that faith doesn't automatically safeguard couples from sexual temptation. He shows - how to avoid "innocent" situations that can easily lead to an affair; - what you can do to strengthen your marriage and reduce the possibility that you or your partner will be tempted in an affair; - how to tell if your mate is having an affair, and what to do if your worst fears prove true; - how adultery does not need to lead to divorce if approached in the right way.

The groundbreaking, provocative book that uses evolutionary psychology to explain human mating and the mysteries of love. If we all want love, why is there so much conflict in our most cherished relationships? To answer this question we must look into our evolutionary past, argues prominent psychologist David M. Buss. Based one of the largest studies of human mating ever undertaken, encompassing more than 10,000 people of all ages from thirty-seven cultures worldwide, The Evolution of Desire is the first work to present a unified theory of human mating behavior. Drawing on a wide range of examples of mating behavior -- from lovebugs to elephant seals, from the Yanomamö tribe of Venezuela to online dating apps -- Buss reveals what women want, what men want, and why their desires radically differ. Love has a central place in human sexual psychology, but conflict, competition, and manipulation also pervade human mating -- something we must confront in order to control our own mating destiny. Updated to reflect the very latest scientific research on human mating, this definitive edition of this classic work of evolutionary psychology explains the powerful forces that shape our most intimate desires.
Why do men and women cheat on each other? How do men really feel when their partners have sex with other men? What worries women more -- men who turn to other women for love or men who simply want sexual variety in their lives? Can the jealousy husbands and wives experience over real or imagined infidelities be cured? Should it be? In this surprising and engaging exploration of men's and women's darker passions, David Buss, acclaimed author of The Evolution of Desire, reveals that both men and women are actually designed for jealousy. Drawing on experiments, surveys, and interviews conducted in thirty-seven countries on six continents, as well as insights from recent discoveries in biology, anthropology, and psychology, Buss discovers that the evolutionary origins of our sexual desires still shape our passions today. According to Buss, more men than women want to have sex with multiple partners. Furthermore, women who cheat on their husbands do so when they are most likely to conceive, but have sex with their spouses when they are least likely to conceive. These findings show that evolutionary tendencies to acquire better genes through different partners still lurk beneath modern sexual behavior. To counteract these desires to stray -- and to strengthen the bonds between partners -- jealousy evolved as an early detection system of infidelity in the ancient and mysterious ritual of mating. Buss takes us on a fascinating journey through many cultures, from pre-historic to the present, to show the profound evolutionary effect jealousy has had on all of us. Only with a healthy balance of jealousy and trust can we be certain of a mate's commitment, devotion, and true love.
