Tonight Dad wants to show Ulf something very special: the universe. Of course, they can’t possibly embark on such a daring adventure unprepared, so they wrap up warm, gather provisions, and then off they go. It’s a long walk, but eventually they get there. Along the way, they learn that sometimes the journey is more important than the destination, and sometimes the biggest lessons happen when you least expect them.

Πριν από δέκα χρόνια ο Όλεθρος ήρθε στον κόσμο. Εμφανίστηκε σαν μια εκτυφλωτική λάμψη στον ουρανό και χάρισε υπεράνθρωπες δυνάμεις σε μια πλειάδα καθημερινών ανθρώπων. Πλημμυρισμένος από φόβο και δέος, ο υπόλοιπος κόσμος άρχισε να αποκαλεί τους ανθρώπους αυτούς Επικούς. Οι Επικοί, όμως, δεν είναι φιλικά διακείμενοι προς την ανθρωπότητα. Μαζί με τις απίστευτες ικανότητές τους απέκτησαν και το πάθος της εξουσίας και η απόλυτη εξουσία προϋποθέτει τη συντριβή του ελεύθερου ανθρώπινου πνεύματος. Στις μέρες μας, στο σημείο όπου κάποτε βρισκόταν η πόλη του Σικάγο, ο πανίσχυρος Επικός που είναι γνωστός ως Ατσαλόκαρδος κυβερνά ως τύραννος, προικισμένος με απίστευτη φυσική δύναμη και την ικανότητα να ελέγχει τα στοιχεία της φύσης. Οι φήμες λένε πως οι σφαίρες δεν μπορούν να τον βλάψουν, πως καμιά λεπίδα δεν μπορεί να τον πληγώσει, πως η φωτιά δεν τον αγγίζει... Είναι άτρωτος, ανίκητος. Κανείς δεν τολμά να του αντισταθεί. Κανείς… εκτός από τους Τιμωρούς. Οι Τιμωροί είναι μια μυστηριώδης ομάδα απλών ανθρώπων που έχουν αφιερώσει τη ζωή τους στη μελέτη των Επικών. Σκοπός τους είναι να ανακαλύψουν τα αδύνατα σημεία τους και να καταφέρουν κάποτε να τους αφανίσουν. Ο νεαρός Ντέιβιντ θέλει όσο τίποτα στον κόσμο να γίνει μέλος των Τιμωρών. Λίγο μετά την άφιξή του στο Σικάγο, ο Ατσαλόκαρδος δολοφόνησε τον πατέρα του Ντέιβιντ. Όπως ακριβώς και οι Τιμωροί, ο Ντέιβιντ μελετά εδώ και χρόνια τους Επικούς, καταστρώνοντας σχέδια για την εξάλειψή τους. Το μεγάλο του όπλο στην προσπάθεια αυτή, όμως, δεν είναι κάποιο αντικείμενο αλλά μια ανάμνηση, που οι Τιμωροί έχουν ανάγκη για να εκπληρώσουν την αποστολή τους. Έχει δει τον Ατσαλόκαρδο να ματώνει. Κι η καρδιά του διψά για εκδίκηση.

Η πτώση του Ατσαλόκαρδου θα έπρεπε να κάνει τα πράγματα πιο εύκολα, αντί γι’ αυτό, όμως, έφερε τον Ντέιβιντ αντιμέτωπο με νέα, βασανιστικά ερωτήματα που κανείς στο Νιουκάγο δεν είναι σε θέση να απαντήσει. Ο αγώνας της ανθρωπότητας εναντίον των Επικών έχει μεταφερθεί τώρα στην Αποκατεστημένη Βαβυλώνα, την πόλη που κάποτε ήταν γνωστή ως Μανχάταν. Μισοβυθισμένη στη θάλασσα κι έχοντας χάσει την αλλοτινή της αίγλη, είναι ένας τόπος όπου η ανθρώπινη ζωή έχει ελάχιστη αξία και βρίσκεται υπό την εξουσία της μυστηριώδους Επικής Ρεγκάλια. Στην προσπάθειά του να βρει τις απαντήσεις που αναζητά, ο Ντέιβιντ θα κληθεί να αναλάβει μια αποστολή γεμάτη απίστευτους κινδύνους, ακόμα πιο τρομακτική και θανάσιμη απ’ τη σύγκρουσή του με τον πανίσχυρο Ατσαλόκαρδο.

The bubbles were swirling all around me, massaging my body. As I luxuriated in this fantastic bath, I gasped realizing that those bubbles carried with them miniature galaxies bringing the entire Cosmos into my bathtub... Alfie is back. And so are George and other characters from the author’s previous book Einstein’s Enigma or Black Holes in My Bubble Bath. While the present book, Universe Unveiled - The Cosmos in My Bubble Bath, is completely independent, its storyline can be considered a sequel to the previous one. The scientific content spanning ancient world models to the most recent mysteries of cosmology is presented in an entirely nontechnical and descriptive style through the discussions between Alfie, the enlightened learner, and George, professor of astrophysics. Fantasies, based on these discussions that cover the scientific facts, are created by the magical bubble baths taken by Alfie. Universe Unveiled blends accurate science with philosophy, drama, humour, and fantasy to create an exciting cosmic journey that reads like a novel and educates as it entertains. “Spurred by a series of mind-bending discoveries, Man’s millennial love affair with the stars has now reached fever pitch. No one writing today is better positioned to evoke the romance and beauty of these cosmic discoveries than Vishveshwara. A leading expert in Einstein’s relativity theory, he brings a lyrical voice and a poetic sensibility to this joyful task. Universe Unveiled, a unique literary creation, transports readers into believing they can actually hear the music of the spheres.” Professor Robert Fuller, Former President, Oberlin College (USA) Author of Somebodies and Nobodies: Overcoming the Abuse of Rank

The story of a woman's triumphant rise from fear and loss, "Lady Lazarus" is at once both heartrending and inspirational. Author Cheryll Crane introduces us to the unforgettable Mattie Moon, whose life takes a number of twists and turns that have the potential to break her spirit. Mattie is a happy nine-year-old when her beloved father tells her that he is leaving home. He asks her to take care of her deeply religious mother, Claudette. Reeling from the loss, Mattie and her mother close up their house and move to Eloise, Illinois. During her senior year of high school, Mattie begins seeing Lamarr, a smooth-talking college student and former schoolmate, with whom she has been obsessed since she was a freshman. When Mattie becomes pregnant, her young lover abandons her, leaving Mattie to take care of her beautiful baby and eccentric mother. She finds love again and gives birth to a second child. But soon her fear of abandonment and her lack of faith threaten the safety of both her and her children. At Eloise Lake, shattered and on the verge of committing a desperate act, Mattie encounters a mysterious woman she calls Stranger. As Mattie's fears and insecurities threaten to overwhelm her, Stranger and the people of Eloise may have the power to help her rise beyond the despair.

Newton s Gravity

“Newton’s Gravity” conveys the power of simple mathematics to tell the fundamental truth about nature. Many people, for example, know the tides are caused by the pull of the Moon and to a lesser extent the Sun. But very few can explain exactly how and why that happens. Fewer still can calculate the actual pulls of the Moon and Sun on the oceans. This book shows in clear detail how to do this with simple tools. It uniquely crosses disciplines – history, astronomy, physics and mathematics – and takes pains to explain things frequently passed over or taken for granted in other books. Using a problem-based approach, “Newton’s Gravity” explores the surprisingly basic mathematics behind gravity, the most fundamental force that governs the movements of satellites, planets, and the stars. Author Douglas W. MacDougal uses actual problems from the history of astronomy, as well as original examples, to deepen understanding of how discoveries were made and what they mean. “Newton’s Gravity” concentrates strongly on the development of the science of orbital motion, beginning with Galileo, Kepler, and Newton, each of whom is prominently represented. Quotes and problems from Galileo’s Dialogs Concerning Two New Sciences and particularly Newton’s Principia help the reader get inside the mind of those thinkers and see the problems as they saw them, and experience their concise and typically eloquent writing. This book enables students and curious minds to explore the mysteries of celestial motion without having to know advanced mathematics. It will whet the reader’s curiosity to explore further and provide him or her the tools (mathematical or physical) to do so.

I come to you in this way; no body, no voice, just the spirit that comes across these pages. I come with a story that not only reveals my intense love for a man that I would never have, but also the depth of my devotion to my most wonderful husband and two beautiful children. I watched my marriage fall apart around me as I reached out to someone who was not there. I tried hopelessly to pick up the pieces of my broken marriage. The pieces did not seem to fit together, while still others were missing. Due to these conflicts, I experienced feelings of deep despair and then terror, as I sank into a dark depression and developed panic disorder. I knew I had to rise above all this or fall prey to this most unhealthy set of circumstances. Through psychological counseling, spiritual guidance, prayer and the support of others, I was able to journey back to my childhood finding clues and information making it possible for me to put the bits and pieces of my life back together, making sense of this once and for all. I not only rise out of depression and panic disorder but also I rise above the burdens of childhood abuse. I ultimately reach a wonderful place, a spiritual loving place, making of myself a strong Spirit-filled vessel for my husband and my children to connect with. There are certainly lessons to be learned here from this story which I share with you. Come away with me grow from what I have learned and how I have loved. Understand the importance of truth and the freedom that comes with it!
