The Daybook of Alexander Kennard, 1785 and 1786, Chester Town, Maryland

In 1785-1786, the Customs House dry goods store functioned as a bank, post office, credit union, commodity exchange, freight and cargo shipper and handler, and community center. The daybook of Alexander Kennard contains the bookkeeper's original entries of debits and credits for the store recorded in date order. A wealth of genealogical data and socio-economic history of Maryland following the Revolutionary War are preserved on these pages. All the leading citizens and prominent families of Chestertown and Kent County transacted their business at the Customs House dry goods store. Wives and children are often mentioned: slaves and servants are designated to pick up goods. The Tanners have faithfully transcribed the handwritten pages exactly as they appear in the original, now fragile, daybook where Alexander Kennard recorded transactions in rich detail.

A Summary of the Writings of Lactantius

Purchase of this book includes free trial access to www.million-books.com where you can read more than a million books for free. This is an OCR edition with typos. Excerpt from book: CHAPTER III. SACRED INSTITUTES, BOOK III. Having devoted two books to the refutation of false Religion, Lactantius undertakes, in the third book of the Institutes, to examine and confute the false philosophy of the heathen, which he divides into the three departments of physical, logical, and moral. In speaking on the first of these branches he betrays that remarkable ignorance of natural philosophy which characterizes his writings throughout: and in the second department he displays too much of the captious and quibbling temper for which the false school of logicians is conspicuous: but he certainly succeeds, in every point, in showing the utter insufficiency of mere human science as our guide in the conduct of life. Pursuing his argument, after some trifling respecting the word " Philosophy," which, he alleges, cannot be Wisdom, since, in its etymology, it professes onlyto be the pursuit of wisdom, he contends that, no sect of philosophers having attained to any thing like determinate knowledge, and mere opinion being of no value1, philosophy may be pronounced to have entirely failed in the investigation of truth. He confutes the doctrine of Arcesilas that " nothing can be certainly known," and exposes the shallow pretensions of that writer at the expense of much needless repetition: and he concludes that the ancient and modern schools of philosophy are equally erroneous, the one in pretending to a knowledge which it does not possess, and the other in destroying the foundations of all knowledge. He observes that physical and logical science have no proper reference to the right conduct of life: and that which is termed ethical can be no sure nor safe guide, since its masters are found to differ respecting its first principles, and even respecting the nature of the su...

Visiting Frost: Poems Inspired by the Life and Work of Robert Frost

Like Emily Dickinson and Walt Whitman, Robert Frost looms large in the American literary landscape, straddling the 19th and 20th centuries like a poetic colossus: whosoever desires passage must, at some point, contend with the monolithic presence of Robert Frost. As they did in Visiting Emily and Visiting Walt, in Visiting Frost, Sheila Coghill and Thom Tammaro once again capture the conversations between contemporary poets and a legend whose voice endures. In his introduction to the collection, Frost biographer Jay Parini likens the poet to a ?great power station, one who stands off by himself in the big woods, continuously generating electricity that future poets can tap into for the price of a volume of his poems.? A four-time Pulitzer Prize winner whose work is principally associated with the landscape and life in New England, Frost (1874-1963) was a traditional, psychologically complex, often dark and intense poet. In Visiting Frost, one hundred homage-paying poets--some who knew Frost, most only acquainted through his work--celebrate and reflect that intensity, in effect tapping into his electrical current. By reacting to specific Frost poems, by reinventing others, and by remembering aspects of Frost or by quarreling with him, the contributors speak on behalf of us whose lives have been brightened by the memorization and recitation of such poems as ?The Road Not Taken? or ?Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.? As the poets pay tribute to Frost's place in American poetry and history, they suggest--more than forty years after his death--just how alive and vital he remains in our collective memory.

Nobody Knows, Nobody Sees

Bob Sloan's work accurately portrays Appalachian culture while showing the conflict between traditional values and modern society. You won't find any stereotypes in Sloan's work. His characters are multi-faceted, with hopes and dreams that provide motivation for their actions. For example, Jesse Surratt, sheriff of Hawkes County, Kentucky, isn't sure he wants to to run for re-election. The state of his marriage is more important to him than politics and the law, but he's determined to find out why his chief deputy chose to go to prison for a murder he almost certainly didn't commit. The key to the murder investigation is the mysterious Lorena, if only Jesse can locate her. Then there's the matter of an unidentified sniper shooting at Jesse's car . . .

Organized crime meets the underworld of the living dead At a glance, Anton Pagano looks and sounds just like any other twenty-something. He lives in a mansion in northern New Jersey with his mom and dad, and he's never had to worry about anything other than his wardrobe, his latest new car, and the secret love affair he's been having for years. However, Anton has more than just the love affair to hide: he belongs to a Sicilian vampire mobster clan that migrated to New Jersey in the late 1800s. When Anton's dad, the head of their clan, decides it's time for Anton and his vampire cousin Digger to get into the ?family business,? Anton's not all that excited about it. Until he meets a sweet, young human named Leo on his first night at work. They wind up spending the rest of the night together, but things get even more complicated when they bring Anton's secret vampire lover into the picture a few weeks later. After a bloody battle with werewolves, and the beginning of what Anton predicts will be an all-out war between two vampire mob clans in New Jersey, Anton and his secret vampire lover decide it's time to consider turning Leo into a vampire so all three of them can be together for eternity. But thanks to fate, nothing is as simple as it looks, and they wind up doing the one thing they ever wanted to do to Leo as a last resort.

The Legend of Nietzsche's Syphilis: (Contributions in Medical Studies)

In this unique exploration of Nietzsche's life and behavior, Dr. Richard Schain challenges the widely held view that this important philosopher's actions and erratic writings were due to general paresis, or syphilis of the brain. The author offers a detailed biography of Nietzsche's life, at each major turning point offering his own thoughts regarding why the diagnosis of syphilis is unsatisfactory to explain Nietszche's behavioral and thought patterns. With an accessible writing style and close attention to detail, Schain offers important reasons for one to reevaluate the claims made regarding Nietzsche's mental illness. Schain also explores another common diagnosis, namely, that of schizophrenia. While this diagnosis, seems more plausible than that of general paresis, it is still inadequate to fully explain the aberrant behavior and eventual mental deterioration of one of the leading Western philosophers of our time. By examining Nietzsche's life and challenging the medical opinions of the time, Schain lays the foundation for rigorous reexamination of the diagnoses of both general paresis and schizophrenia as causes for Nietzsche's actions, thoughts, and philosophies.

Patent Empowerment for Small Corporations

Small corporations are the leading forces in the development of new technologies, and patents are their most important assets. The role of patents in joint ventures, funding, marketing, and the strategic alliances that help small corporations grow and prosper is inestimable. Heines' book offers executives in small, rising corporations an in-depth, practical, useful comprehension of the patent system--the knowledge they need to understand, and work with, professional patent attorneys. With detailed examples and scenarios to illustrate legal principles, and with forms and advice to help develop a corporate patent strategy, the book provides critical information accessibly in a comprehensible manner and without dangerous, naive oversimplification. It will quickly prove useful to corporate decision makers and to academics teaching small business methods and management. Among the book's special features is its focus on the perspective, interests, and special needs of small corporations, and its abundance of various hypothetical technology scenarios, illustrating the legal principles that Heines dissects and analyzes. Another special feature is the balance it strikes between thouroughness and clarity: it gives a lot of information but in a way that non-attorneys can easily understand. Heines explains and illustrates the principles of patent law and describes how to organize and implement an internal patent policy. He goes on to show how to accommodate patenting with ongoing research, how to maintain patent rights while working with outside vendors, how to distinguish between patenting and freedom-to-operate, and how to react and respond to the patents of competitors. Also addressed are the small corporation's need to control costs and ways to make patenting decisions in a manner that will provide maximum flexibility in deciding when and where to patent without relinquishing organizational control.  

Morgan Library Ghost Stories

The patron saint - or, perhaps, guiding spirit - behind these witty and literate ghost stories is M.R. James (1862-1936). He is generally acclaimed as the author of some of the most economical, clearly focused, concise, and elegant ghost stories ever written. His work on medieval manuscripts was the focal point of an exhibition held in 1987 at the Pierpont Morgan Library. That exhibition gave birth to a strange offspring - a contest of ghost stories connected in some way with the Morgan Library and written in a Jamesian style. This elegantly illustrated volume contains the seven winning stories.  

Political Elements or the Progress on Modern Legislation

Publisher: London, J. W. Parker and son Publication date: 1852 Subjects: Law / General Law / Administrative Law

Public Libraries and Social Justice

The need for public libraries to tackle social exclusion and engage in social justice becomes ever more urgent as the gap between rich and poor continues to widen, and the very survival of public libraries in the heart of the community is open to debate. If public libraries are to develop and grow in the future and become relevant to the majority of their local communities, then they need to abandon outmoded concepts of 'excellence' and fully grasp the 'equity' agenda. This book examines the historical background to social exclusion and the strategic context in terms of government and professional policy. The authors propose a compelling manifesto for change and outline practical ways in which public libraries can be transformed into needs-based services.  

Mechanical Activation of Minerals by Grinding: Pulverizing and Morphology of Particles (Ellis Horwood series in mining mineral resources engineering)

This study examines the structural and chemical transformations brought about by mechanical effects during the grinding and pulverizing processes. These transformations are important aspects of mechanochemistry and the authors deal with them from both a theoretical and practical viewpoint. They emphasize the physicochemical changes which affect the intrinsic properties of materials, changes which cannot be adequately explained in mechanistic terms as due to the reduction of particle size only. Silicates and nonsilicate materials are described, along with the characteristics of disperse systems (grinds). A new morphologic classification of disperse systems is presented together with methods for their examination. There is also a comprehensive survey of the activating and the griding equipment available, which include ball, vibrator, radial, planet vessel mills and disintegrators. Comparisons are made between the effects of the various processes.  

From Creation to Babel: Studies in Genesis 1-11 (Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies)

The stories of Genesis 1-11 constitute one of the better known parts of the Old Testament, but their precise meaning and background still provide many debated questions for the modern interpreter. In this stimulating, learned and readable collection of essays, which paves the way for his forthcoming ICC commentary on these chapters, John Day attempts to provide definitive solutions to some ofthese questions. Amongst the topics included are the background and interpretation of the seven-day Priestly Creation narrative, problems in the interpretation of the Garden of Eden story, the relation of Cain and the Kenites, the strange stories of the sons of God and daughters of men and of Noah's drunkenness and the curse of Canaan, the precise ancient Near Eastern background of the Flood story and the preceding genealogies, and the meaning and background of the story of the tower and city of Babel. Throughout this volume John Day constantly seeks to determine the original meaning of these stories in the light of their ancient Near Eastern background, and to determine how far this original meaning has been obscured by later interpretations.

God's Scholars

Excerpt from book: CHAPTER IV "pvEAELY as Deborah loved the child Nelly --' she spoke but the truth when she said she wished she had never been born. It seemed to her that in some way she had failed in her duty to the dead mother who had committed the little step-sister to her charge, with a recommendation to bring her up an honest woman. Since Euth was eight years old Deborah had stood to her rather in the relation of mother than of elder sister, for Mrs. Varley had not long survived her husband, who had gone down with his smack off the Dogger Bank. The girl had returned from service just in time to bid the dying woman farewell and to promise to make a home for her brother and sister. The struggle at first was a hard one. Though considered a man of property, Debbage had only left a row of small cottages which, when all were let—a rare occurrence—produced a rental of but twenty-five pounds a year. Varley, happy-go-lucky and improvident, had leftnothing. At first Deborah eked out the small income by taking in plain needlework, and thus, with the wages earned by the fifteen-year-old Matthew, managed to provide necessities, if not luxuries, for the home. As each year passed Matthew's position on the fishing-boat improved, and with his increased wages he was able to contribute more largely to household expenses. Buth had grown from a pretty child into a pretty girl, with fair hair and laughing eyes, fonder of amusement than work, preferring to enjoy herself in the company of girls of her own age to helping her sister at home. Deborah decided to send her to service as soon as she was old enough, she would be made to work, and would have the discipline her high spirit needed. When she was between seventeen and eighteen a situation was heard of at King's Lynn, and after careful inquiry Deborah det...

Sparrowhawk Book 1: Jack Frake (Cline, Edward. Sparrowhawk Series, Bk. 1.)

Bringing a radically new perspective to the events leading up to The American Revolution, Sparrowhawk, a new series of historical novels, establishes that The Revolution occurred in two stages: the war for independence and also a more subtle revolution that happened in men's minds that occurred many years before the Declaration of Independence. Book 1 in this new series introduces the reader to life in 18th Century England, where, despite being one of the freest countries in the world there were rumblings of discontent amongst the citizens and Jake Frake is no exception to this endemic restlessness. From an early age he has developed an independent mind and spirit, a trait that is not openly welcomed for someone of his lowly class. Fate and circumstance leads him to join a band of smugglers and he furthers their cause. Jack himself is sentenced to eight years of servitude in the Colonies and he embarks on a sea voyage aboard the Sparrowhawk, destined for Virginia.

Stefan George und les deux musiques: Toenende und vertonte Dichtung im Einklang und Widerstreit (German Edition)

Die meist vage umschriebene Musikalitat von Lyrik wird anhand von Georges Gedichten und Ubertragungen sowie durch klassisch-romantische Beispiele konkretisiert. Zur Veranschaulichung und Abgrenzung sind verwandte Phanomene der Musik (Gregorianik bis 20. Jahrhundert) herangezogen. Urteile Georges uber Kompositionen seiner Texte, in denen er musikalisch argumentiert, bilden den Ausgangspunkt. Das an dem Problem George-Hofmannsthal-Strauss (Elektra) beleuchtete Verhaltnis Poesie-Musik erweist sich am Schluss als enge Verwandtschaft und zugleich unvereinbare Dualitat: adeux musiqueso, wie der junge George unter dem Eindruck Mallarmes formulierte. "aein Vorbild zuverlassiger wissenschaftlicher Forschungsarbeita Dank der vom vergleichenden Charakter des Themas her bedingten, vom Verfasser uberlegen gehandhabten und kenntnisreich unterbauten komparatistischen Methode ist hier ein ausserordentlich komplexes wissenschaftliches Werk entstanden[a ]Nicht nur fur den George-Spezialisten, sondern fur Lernende, Lehrende und Forschende in den Bereichen der deutschen und romanischen Literatur und der Musik bildet der Band eine unerschopfliche Quelle wichtiger Fakten und Erkenntnisse, die an keiner anderen Stelle so leicht greifbar angeboten werden." Monatshefte "This is clearly the definitive book on Stefan George and music, written by a scholar who has had access to all the material relative to such a study." Music and Letters .

Cooking with Rice Cookers for Today's College Students: With Clear and Precise Step-by-Step Instructions

Today, a considerable majority of university dorms do not allow the use of any cooking devises, such as electric woks and crock pots etc., with the exception of a simple rice cooker and possibly a toaster. As a result, students are forced to buy their meals at college cafeterias or local restaurants, which charge an arm and a leg. But now there?s a way around the restriction imposed by the dorms?with the use of a rice cooker. This book is to share the recipes that I found to be quick and easy to make using the rice cooker with other college students in the hope that they too can save a bundle, eating delicious dishes at the same time. Also, this book is a great book for beginning cooks, since it teaches simple recipes by using a few common ingredients that can also be performed on a stove or electric wok. Furthermore, nearly all of the dishes featured in this book can stand alone as a party or special occasion dish. In preparing this cookbook, I was able to cook enough dishes to host a holiday party all from the recipes shown in this book. I hope that you will enjoy cooking with the recipes in this book, which not only save you a bundle while in college but also continue to serve you throughout your life.

When you buy the General Books edition of this book you get free trial access to Million-Books.com where you can select from more than a million books for free. Excerpt: CHAPTER V The arrival of Mr. Jim Ramsay in Spring Valley had occasioned little more than a passing notice: but when he emerged from the bank and proceeded up the street and turned into Judge Peabody's office, the sitters over at Bradley's store sat up and took notice. It was well known that the Judge and Ramsay "didn't jibe," though it was equally well known that the fault -- if it could be called a fault -- was entirely the Judge's. He disapproved of Ramsay, and made no secret of it: in fact, there had been several occasions when the Judge had expressed himself unequivocally to Ramsay himself. It was incomprehensible to Abner Judd and a quorum of Bradley's "parliament," that the Judge refused to enter into business relations with a man of Ramsay's undoubted influence and power: and the conclusion of this body politic was, "that dern fool Peabody don't know which side his bread's buttered on." So when Ramsay stepped into the outer room of the Judge's "suite," Alan Bailey looked up from his book in surprise. "Hello, Alan," said Ramsay, in a friendly tone, shifting his cigar over to the port side of his mouth -- "the Judge in?" "I think so," said Alan, a trifle coldly, as he rose from his chair and went to the private office, Ramsay following close at his heels. "He was here, a moment ago," said Alan, looking about the empty room: "he probably went out the back way. Shall I try to find him for you?" "No," said Ramsay, smiling tolerantly, "don't bother. I'll wait a few moments for him. I suppose he's out with some of the kids. I wouldn't be a bit surpris...

Determinants of Defense Budget Process in Post-Communist Poland: From the Warsaw Pact to the 21st Century

This is a NAVAL POSTGRADUATE SCHOOL MONTEREY CA report procured by the Pentagon and made available for public release. It has been reproduced in the best form available to the Pentagon. It is not spiral-bound, but rather assembled with Velobinding in a soft, white linen cover. The Storming Media report number is A839424. The abstract provided by the Pentagon follows: This thesis identifies and explains the critical changes that have occurred in the complex system of interrelated rules which have governed the defense budget process in Poland since 1989. This research explains the legal and institutional evolution of the defense budget process in post-communist Poland, focusing on the role of legislative authority i.e., the Sejm and the Senat of the Republic of Poland within the defense budget process since the collapse of the Warsaw Pact. It also analyzes the distribution of power among the different actors in the budget cycle. This is followed by a thorough description of rules imposed by the Law on Restructuring, Technical Modernization and Financing of the Polish Armed Forces in the Years 2001-2006, and the Act of Equipping the Armed Forces of the Republic of Poland with Multi- Role Aircraft. These two documents were instrumental in shaping defense spending in Poland in the years 2001-2003 and will have a great impact on future decisions concerning defense budgets in the years to come. An overview of defense spending by European members of NATO is also provided to allow a comparison of Poland s willingness to commit resources to the common defense of other NATO members.

Book of The Three Dragons

Originally published in 1930, Kenneth Morris's superb Book of the Three Dragons is an imaginative reworking of elements from the Mabinogion and other Welsh Celtic stories, telling the story of Manawyddan, who is given the choice between immortality with the gods or preventing a new evil from destroying the Island of the Mighty. Manawyddan chooses the latter, and the novel tells of his adventures. Swiftly moving and dramatic, this is a book that lovers of modern fantasy and old hero tales alike cannot afford to miss. Perhaps most importantly for modern readers, for the first time Morris's unpublished ending - amounting to one-third of the book's length - is included in this new edition, telling what became of the hero, his wife, and their son. NOTE ON NEW SERIES: This is the first in our new line of fantasy fiction, which will feature both masterpieces no longer in print in the US as well as new works. The series will be edited by noted Tolkien scholar Douglas A. Anderson, whose previous books include The Annotated Hobbit (HM) and Tales Before Tolkien (Ballantine). Mr. Anderson will also write introductions to each book, providing context and background to enrich the reader's experience. The cover look and interior design will appeal to all demographics (especially younger fans under 30 who play computer fantasy games and love writers like Tolkien, Pratchett, and Pullman) with top artists creating a dazzling fantasy look. Quotes:"It is a singularly fine example of the recreation of a work magnificent in its own right (the 'Mabinogion') -- a literary event rather rare except in fantasy" - Ursula Le Guin "Kenneth Morris was an important, innovative fantasist, worthy to rank with MacDonald, Eddison, and Tolkien." - Ursula Le Guin "Morris writes with all Lord Dunsany's richness, though his cadences are Celtic rather than biblical. This one should be read aloud." - review in the Feb. 2004 issue of Fantasy Science Fiction magazine "Book of the Three Dragons is perhaps the single best fantasy adaptation from a real-world mythology (in this case, the Welsh Mabinogion), and the best of his tales¨" - John Rateliff, review in the Sept. 2003 issue of Wizards of the Coast website (www.wizards.com), the 1 adventure gaming company in the world.

F4U Corsair in Action - Aircraft No. 220

Bringing to mind the exploits of Pappy Boyington and his Blacksheep Squadron and Tommy Blackburn with the Jolly Rogers, the Corsair is among the most formidable U.S. fighters of World War II. The F4U maintained a kill ratio of 11:1 according to the United States Navy and went on to serve American forces in Korea, holding its own in the early years of the jet age. The Corsair was first conceived as a high-speed, high-altitude fighter for the Navy in 1938 when Chance Vought?s design team drew up plans for a fighter with a 1,800 h.p. engine and a huge 13-foot propeller. The Corsair?s famous inverted gull wing design was introduced to allow prop clearance. Handling problems delayed the aircraft?s deployment aboard carriers, but Marine Corps pilots quickly took to the powerful, rugged fighter and VMF-124, the first Marine squadron to fly the Corsair in combat, also produced the first Corsair air ace, Kenneth A. Walsh, by the summer of 1943. A total of 12,571 Corsairs were built between 1940 and 1952, most of them by Vought, but hundreds by Goodyear and Brewster as those companies? assembly lines had to be pressed into service to meet soaring demand for the remarkable aircraft. Jim Sullivan?s exhaustive volume surveys the history of the Corsair from its first prototype to the restored warbirds that have continued to delight air show audiences down to the present day. Illustrated with 169 photographs, 53 of which are in color, plus color profiles and detailed line drawings. 64 pages  

Sin Revisited

In Sin Revisited, Solange Hertz tackles the topic of sin with a unique perspective for modern times, delving into the intellectual approaches of the Desert Fathers as well as St. John of the Cross. In Hertz?s own words: ?Don?t expect to find the seven deadly sources so familiar in song and story. You?ll find eight, and even these won?t be in the same sequence most of us are used to. This approach is newer than Vatican II, because it?s so much older, if you know what I mean, very much older certainly than the old Baltimore Catechism.? Upon reading this book, a person may subtly undergo an examination of conscience pertaining to each sin that is being discussed. This book is designed to be a guide for spiritual perfection.  

A Few Drops Short of a Pint (Volume 2 of 2) (EasyRead Super Large 24pt Edition)

With 700 pubs in Dublin alone, the Irish have no shortage of places to enjoy a pint of the black stuff. Guinness is very big business. Distinctive black delivery trucks scurried around the city carrying large kegs to the pubs. Advertisements were played regularly on TV. There were large posters on bridges, buses and billboards everywhere. In Dublin, the Guinness harp symbol is far more pervading than the Golden M of McDonalds. Chris Dowding lived a quiet, solitary life as an engineer in Brisbane that only began to change when he met his future wife Kerryn who, after their wedding, persuaded Chris to move to Irelandto a new beginning. A Few Drops Short of a Pint is the hilarious account of Chris and Kerryns Irish experience. Capturing Chriss fascinations, frustrations and fears (did you know 58 percent of all motor accidents in Dublin occur during the day, in high visibility conditions with dry weather, on a straight road?) in his new surroundings, the story covers Irish lifestyle issues ranging from water heating to violent political factionalism. While exploring Ireland, A Few Drops Short of a Pint is also a powerful story of self-exploration and discovery, showing that sometimes a change of circumstances is all the therapy we need. Jubilant and demoralized in equal measures, this is a story oozing with razor sharp (and often self-deprecating) wit that beautifully captures the experience of transplanting yourself into a foreign culture.  

Calculating a Value for Dominant Battlespace Awareness

This is a AIR FORCE INST OF TECH WRIGHT-PATTERSONAFB OH report procured by the Pentagon and made available for public release. It has been reproduced in the best form available to the Pentagon. It is not spiral-bound, but rather assembled with Velobinding in a soft, white linen cover. The Storming Media report number is A931243. The abstract provided by the Pentagon follows: In times of ever-tightening military budgets, methodologies are required that can compare the contributions of various systems involved in the warfighting process. While many tools are in use that directly measure the effects of greater numbers of enhanced hardware, and even improved processes, no validated methodology exists to measure elements that contribute to Command, Control, Communications, and Computers (C4): Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR): or to analytically compare these elements with more traditional hardware. This thesis develops a methodology for mathematically quantifying awareness in a military command and control (C2) environment. This methodology begins with the Observe-Orient-Decide-Act Loop to show the connections between levels of command and control, and to show influences. Entropy, in an information theory context, is modified to reflect not only how much is known at any level, but to show how well that information is known, producing a mathematically quantified measure of awareness. The awareness capability for various systems is calculated, and the rate of awareness loss is shown over time. Finally, an awareness curve is developed that shows the awareness of the C2 system throughout the process of attacking a ground target from the air.

The Home Bible

Cop on the Beat: Officer Steven Mayfield in New York City

Given unlimited access to the life and work of a New York City cop, Arlene Schulman takes us along on Steven Mayfield’s beat in what School Library Journal calls an "uplifting and accurate description of one man’s dedication to his career."

"Modernizing" Afghanistan: How 80 Years of Interventions Impoverished a Frugal Society

From Marco Polo's discovery of lapis lazuli gemstones in 1260 through emeralds that financed Masood's war against the Taliban in the 1990s, the wealth of the country has always been used to finance war both by foreigners and their proxies.Modernist interventions-whether politico-military, economic or cultural-into Afghanistan since 1919 have failed in every way. On their own terms, they have not reconstructed Afghanistan in the image of the West. Afghanistan remains overwhelmingly a rural, tribal -peasant-nomadic, deeply Muslim society. More importantly, these interventions, writes Herold in a stirring book, have created modern poverty in urban areas, famines in rural ones, and profoundly upset the delicate balance between people and nature/environment constructed over millenia.

The NRAEF is introducing a new program as part of its strategic focus on recruitment and retention.  This new management training certification program is based on a set of competencies defined by the restaurant, foodservice and hospitality industry as those needed for success.  NRAEF ManageFirst Program leads to a new credential, ManageFirst Professional (MFP), which is part of our industry career ladder.  This competency-based program includes 12 topics, each with a competency guide, exam, instructor resources and certificate.  Students earn a certificate for each exam passed.  The topics and exams are aligned to typical on-campus courses. For example, the Controlling Foodservice Costs Competency Guide is designed to align with a Cost Control or Operations Management course.  Competency Guides and Textbooks: Most guides are 150-200 pages in length and are designed to be used with traditional textbooks for each course area.  Each guide contains the essential content for that topic, learning activities, assessments, case studies, suggested field trips research projects, professional profiles and testimonials.  Instructor resources are available electronically and include competency guide content, notes indicating points to be emphasized, recommended activities and discussion questions, and answers to all activities and case studies.  Exams: Exams accompany each topic covered in the competency guides.  Pencil and paper and online exam formats are offered.  They typically are proctored on campus at the end of a course by faculty. Certificates: The NRAEF provides a certificate to students upon successfully passing each exam.  The certificates are endorsed by the NRAEF and feature the student?s name and the exam passed.  The certificates are a lasting recognition of a student?s accomplishment and a signal to the industry that the student has mastered the competencies covered within a particular topic. Credential: Upon successful completion of five NRAEF ManageFirst Program exams (including three predefined core topics, one foundation topic, and ServSafe Food Safety) a student is awarded the NRAEF ManageFirst Professional (MFP) credential.  There is no additional charge for the credential.  The program is targeted at the academic community.  The program is flexible for use at two-year or four-year restaurant, foodservice and hospitality programs, proprietary schools and technical/vocational career education schools.  

Moon Child

The stars at Hanna's birth predict greatness, but she experiences precious little of it as the only girl growing up at an all male Monastery. Everyone there learns the same skills: how to perform basic magic spells and how to access the Memories, a pictorial historical system embedded into the brains of humans by the Ancients, a now defunct race. Even as she studies the Memories, Hanna wonders what could be so great about accessing them. Yet this ability is more exceptional than Hanna believes: most humans have lost the ability to access the Memories. Hanna earns exile for her father and herself when she inadvertently reveals that she knows the secret language of the Priests--a crime normally punishable by death. As Hanna and her father embark on their journey over frighteningly unfamiliar land and sea, searching for a safe place to make their new life, she ruefully longs for the security of the Monastery. Facing seasickness and walking distances greater than she has ever imagined, Hanna's doubts grow that she is bound for anything but despair and banishment. But the stars did speak the Truth. Greatness does await Hanna--if only she can survive being kidnapped, betrayed time and again, and can outrun a flood such as her world has never experienced before.

Patient Safety (Hc, Sixth Report of Session 2008-09, Report, Together With Formal Minutes)

Reviews of patients' case notes indicate that in the NHS and in other healthcare systems as many as 10 per cent of patients admitted to hospital suffer form of harm, much of which is avoidable. Tens of thousands of patients suffer unnecessary harm each year and there is a huge cost to the NHS in consequence. This report, 'Patient Safety (HC 151-I)', examines the implementation of safety policy since 2000. That policy has focused on the creation of a unified national mechanism for reporting and analysing incidents, underpinned by a new culture of openness in the NHS. Systems for reporting and learning from incidents were established, centred on the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS) and the National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA). The Committee finds areas where policy has failed, barriers to change and other reasons for slow progress. It recommends several changes that need to be made in order for there to be further progress in tackling unsafe care. The recommendations are in the areas of: measurement and evaluation: harmed patients and their families or carers: creating a more open, reporting and learning NHS: more patient safety at the front line in the NHS: greater use of technologies to improve care: improvements in the education and training curricula: commissioning by Primary Care Trusts, performance management and regulation: the role of managers and boards: and, the role of the Department of Health and Government.

Channels: Webster's Timeline History, 7000 BC - 1965

Webster's bibliographic and event-based timelines are comprehensive in scope, covering virtually all topics, geographic locations and people. They do so from a linguistic point of view, and in the case of this book, the focus is on "Channels," including when used in literature (e.g. all authors that might have Channels in their name). As such, this book represents the largest compilation of timeline events associated with Channels when it is used in proper noun form. Webster's timelines cover bibliographic citations, patented inventions, as well as non-conventional and alternative meanings which capture ambiguities in usage. These furthermore cover all parts of speech (possessive, institutional usage, geographic usage) and contexts, including pop culture, the arts, social sciences (linguistics, history, geography, economics, sociology, political science), business, computer science, literature, law, medicine, psychology, mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology and other physical sciences. This "data dump" results in a comprehensive set of entries for a bibliographic and/or event-based timeline on the proper name Channels, since editorial decisions to include or exclude events is purely a linguistic process. The resulting entries are used under license or with permission, used under "fair use" conditions, used in agreement with the original authors, or are in the public domain.  

Carry Me Home: My Autobiography

Ben Cohen?s dad didn?t know anything about the sport his young son had taken up, but he was happy to drive him to practice, and was soon helping out at the club. When his business went bankrupt money was tight, but Ben?s hard working parents inspired their son to put his all into rugby. Then, when Ben was 20, his father intervened in a fight in the nightclub where he worked. He was viciously beaten and one month later he died in hospital. Ben was doing an England press conference at the time, and it was down to coach Clive Woodward to deliver the devastating news. But the ordeal was far from over. The inquest lasted five months before the funeral could be held, and it was a year before the family were in court, facing Peter?s assailants. Ben put all of the anger and pain from his father?s death into his rugby. Fast and powerful on the wing, he was soon the best in the world in his position and a cornerstone of the England team, culminating in the legendary World Cup win in Sydney in 2003. And yet he always felt like an outsider. Most people didn?t know that Ben is clinically deaf. His sixth sense for the game got him through on the pitch, but off it his poor hearing was often taken for arrogance. This is an inspirational story of passion and pain: of the highs of achieving your goals, and the grief of losing something you can never get back.

The colonies under the house of Hanover

Excerpt from book: In the true spirit of mediaeval economy, no person might ' engross' goods in the market with a view to retailing them. The proposal for a market was considered in a town meeting of over eight hundred, and only carried by twenty-five votes. We may reasonably suppose this opposition was due not to indifference to a scheme so evidently convenient in itself, but to dislike of the restraint on private dealing. The market was to be held in three separate places. This was probably intended to suit the convenience of different parts of the town, and also necessitated by the difficulty of finding any site at once central and spacious enough. The peninsular position of the town had not as yet brought with it any inconvenient compression. In some parts, indeed, houses were crowded together, as they can scarcely fail to be in a seaport town with a stirring business, where certain situations have obvious advantages. But the town was well furnished with lungs. The open common, where in the days of Winthrop and Dudley the town cattle had grazed, was now a lounge for a leisurely class with tastes and habits undreamt of a century earlier.1 Gardens and orchards adjoining the town, and breaking the line of its outer buildings, give an air of space and freedom which Boston retained till late into the nineteenth century2 through years of increasing prosperity. That men, not walls, make a city is specially true of the life of a young community, strenuous, fast-growing 8ocii uie and self-conscious. Of the life of those who oc- of Boton. CUpied the houses of Boston it is not difficult to form a distinct and fairly complete picture.

A Sky of Spells (Sorcerer's Ring)

"?THE SORCERER?S RING has all the ingredients for an instant success: plots, counterplots, mystery, valiant knights, and blossoming relationships replete with broken hearts, deception and betrayal. It will keep you entertained for hours, and will satisfy all ages. Recommended for the permanent library of all fantasy readers.? --Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos A SKY OF SPELLS is book 9 in the bestselling series THE SORCERER'S RING--which begins with A QUEST OF HEROES (Book 1 )--a FREE download on Amazon, with over 400 five star reviews! In A SKY OF SPELLS (BOOK 9 IN THE SORCERER?S RING), Thorgrin finally returns to himself and must confront his father once and for all. An epic battle occurs, as two titans face each other, and as Rafi uses his power to summon an army of undead. With the Destiny Sword destroyed, and the fate of the Ring in the balance, Argon and Alistair will need to summon their magical powers to help Gwendolyn?s brave warriors. Yet even with their help, all could be lost if it were not for the return of Mycoples, and her new companion, Ralibar. Luanda struggles to prevail against her captor, Romulus, as the fate of the Shield hangs in the balance. Reece, meanwhile, struggles to lead his men back up the Canyon walls, with Selese?s help. Their love deepens: but with the arrival of Reece?s old love, his cousin, a tragic love triangle and misunderstandings develop. When the Empire is finally ousted from the Ring, and Gwendolyn has her chance for personal vengeance against McCloud, there is great cause to celebrate. As the new Queen of the Ring, Gwen uses her powers to unite both MacGils and McClouds for the first time in history, and to begin the epic rebuilding of the land, of her army, and of the Legion. King?s Court slowly comes back to life once again, as they all begin to pick up the pieces. It is destined to become a more glorious city than even her father ever dreamed of, and in the process, justice finally finds Gareth. Tirus must be brought to justice, too, and Gwen will have to decide what sort of leader she will be. There is a great conflict amongst Tirus? sons, not all of whom see things the same way, and a struggle for power erupts once again, as Gwen decides if she will accept an invitation to the Upper Isles, thus making the MacGil clan whole once again. Erec is summoned to return to his people in the Southern Isles and see his dying father, and Alistair joins him, as they prepare for their wedding. Thorgrin and Gwendolyn may have wedding preparations in their future, too. Thor becomes closer to his sister, and as all settles down inside the Ring, he finds himself summoned to embark on his greatest quest of all: to seek out his mysterious mother in a faraway land and to find out who he really is. With multiple wedding preparations in the air, with Spring returning, King?s Court rebuilding, festivals afoot, peace seems to settle back onto the Ring. But danger lurks in the most unforeseen corners, and all of these characters greatest tribulations might be yet to come. With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A SKY OF SPELLS is an epic tale of friends and lovers, of rivals and suitors, of knights and dragons, of intrigues and political machinations, of coming of age, of broken hearts, of deception, ambition and betrayal. It is a tale of honor and courage, of fate and destiny, of sorcery. It is a fantasy that brings us into a world we will never forget, and which will appeal to all ages and genders. "  

The Vietnam War Files: Uncovering the Secret History of Nixon Era Strategy (Modern War Studies)

How Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger pursued their public vow to end the Vietnam War and win the peace has long been entangled in bitter controversy and obscured by political spin. Recent declassifications of archival documents, on both sides of the former Iron and Bamboo Curtains, have at last made it possible to uncover the truth behind Nixon's and Kissinger's management of the war and to better understand the policies and strategies of the Vietnamese, Soviets, and Chinese. Drawing from this treasure trove of formerly secret files, Jeffrey Kimball has excerpted more than 140 print documents and taped White House conversations bearing on Nixon-era strategy. Most of these have never before been published and many provide smoking-gun evidence on such long-standing controversies as the "madman theory" and the "decent-interval" option. They reveal that by 1970 Nixon's and Kissinger's madman and détente strategies had fallen far short of frightening the North Vietnamese into making concessions. By 1971, as Kissinger notes in one key document, the administration had decided to withdraw the remaining U.S. combat troops while creating "a healthy interval for South Vietnam's fate to unfold." The new evidence uncovers a number of behind-the-scenes ploys--such as Nixon's secret nuclear alert of October 1969--and sheds more light on Nixon's goals in Vietnam and his and Kissinger's strategies of Vietnamization, the "China card," and "triangular diplomacy." The excerpted documents also reveal significant new information about the purposes of the LINEBACKER bombings, Nixon's manipulation of the POW issue, and the conduct of the secret negotiations in Paris--as well as other key topics, events, and issues. All of these are effectively framed by Kimball, whose introductions to each document provide insightful historical context. Building on the ground-breaking arguments of his earlier prize-winning book, Nixon's Vietnam War, Kimball also offers readers a concise narrative of the evolution of Nixon-era strategy and a critical assessment of historical myths about the war. The story that emerges from both the documents and Kimball's contextual narratives directly contradicts the Nixon-Kissinger version of events. In fact, they did not pursue a consistent strategy from beginning to end and did not win a peace with honor. This book is part of the Modern War Studies series.
