Book Summary:

General Richard B. Myers, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the critical four years following September 11, 2001, looks back over his career and provides a candid, revealing insider's view of the war on terror and proposing a bold new plan that will prepare America for the diverse national security challenges of the twenty-first century. Growing up in Kansas as the son of hardworking, nononsense parents, General Richard Myers, a distinguished Air Force officer for more than forty years, learned early the value of steadfast integrity and selfless service. As Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 2001 to 2005, he bore witness to the critical events that shaped America's defense policy in the wake of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. In the days, weeks, and months that followed, he worked around the clock, helping to devise innovative, unprecedented strategies for the Bush administration's war on terror in Afghanistan and Iraq and advising the president on tough, historic national security decisions. In this captivating memoir, General Myers talks candidly about his career in the military, the unforgettable events of September 11, and the global war on terror. With an insider's perspective, he outlines the mistakes made by the White House, Pentagon leadership, and the intelligence community. Myers believes that America has misidentified its adversary, focusing too narrowly on tactical battles, instead of on a long-range strategy that will overcome a global insurgency fueled by a struggle for control within Islam. The United States must rely not just on the military, but also on intelligence and other instruments of national power and work through extant governments to reverse the depiction of an American-led crusade against Muslims. Rather than identify what Islam should become, we must work with an international community that includes responsible non-Western states to protect against the behaviors we consider universally unacceptable -- especially those that promote violence against the U.S. and its allies or any other country or society affected by the struggle within Islam. Finally, Myers maintains we must integrate our own government agencies so that we can focus a sustained approach to this strategy. Told with unfailing honesty, Eyes on the Horizon is an unforgettable memoir of one of our nation's highestranking officers and a courageous call for change that will strengthen American national security and defend a democratic way of life.

Book Summary:

Charlie Carroll’s obsession began with his chance discovery of Seven Years in Tibet in the “Adult Reading” section of his grade school library. The battered hardcover with faded gold lettering sparked a twenty-year obsession with Tibet, and after combing through every book, article, and documentary on the mysterious and controversial nation, Charlie finally decided it was time to stop reading other people’s records and thoughts. A high school English teacher by then, he took a sabbatical and set out to experience the shrouded land for himself. Contending with Chinese bureaucracy, unforgiving terrain, and sickness-inducing altitude, Charlie sought entrance to twenty-first-century Tibet in all its heart-stopping beauty. The same year Charlie was browsing library shelves, Tibetan-born Lobsang was crossing the Himalayas on foot, enduring to flee the volatile region with his family at the young age of five. An exile in Nepal with an ear for languages, then a university student in India, he followed the love of his life back to their home country, only to be separated by China’s harsh political backlash. In a teahouse at the border between China and Tibet, Lobsang met Charlie and recounted his extraordinary life story, exemplifying the hardship, resilience, and hope of modern Tibetan life.

Book Summary:

"This book is about me and the adversity that he has beset me in this community due to my diagnosed mental illness and my advocacy for the mentally ill. Many of the poems come from life experiences in the past and absorb the reality of death. There were days when no one encouraged me, many ignored me, and others talked about me. This weaved in and out of the poetry when I felt this pain and wrote it out in my poetry. There are also poems relating to nature that revive my mind and inspires me to continue on. America is in some of my poems and how I feel that a nation has come so far but up at a standstill now. I listen to the news everyday because when I graduated in 1963, that was what we were told to do- keep up with the news because the world would get smaller and my poetry reflects what is going on in the world today. This book is a combination of adversity, nature, death, and world conflict. And I think all can relate to my book in diverse ways.

Book Summary:

On the Horizon of World Literature compares literary texts from asynchronous periods of incipient literary modernity in different parts of the world: Romantic England and Republican China. These moments were oriented alike by “world literature” as a discursive framework of classifications that connected and re-organized local articulations of literary histories and literary modernities. World literature thus provided—and continues to provide—a condition of possibility for conversation between cultures as well as for their mutual provincialization. The book offers readings of a selection of literary forms that serve also as textual sites for the enactment of new socio-political forms of life. The literary manifesto, the tale collection, the familiar essay, and the domestic novel function as testing grounds for questions of both literary-aesthetic and socio-political importance: What does it mean to attain a voice? What is a common reader? How does one dwell in the ordinary? What is a woman? In different languages and activating heterogeneous literary and philosophical traditions, works by Percy Bysshe Shelley, Lu Xun, Charles and Mary Lamb, Lin Shu, Zhou Zuoren, Jane Austen, and Eileen Chang explore the far-from-settled problem of what it means to be modern in different lifeworlds. Sun’s book brings to light the disciplinary-historical impact world literature has had in shaping literary traditions and practices around the world. The book renews the practice of close reading by offering the model of a deprovincialized close reading loosened from confinement within monocultural hermeneutic circles. By means of its own focus on England and China, the book provides methods useful for comparatists working between other Western and non-Western languages. It establishes the critical significance of Romanticism for the discipline of literary studies and opens up new paths of research in global Romanticism and global nineteenth-century studies. And it offers a new approach to analyzing the cosmopolitan character of the literary and cultural transformations of early twentieth-century China.

1914-1918 ... This is the third book in the Blackwood saga. For three generations, members of the Blackwood family served the Royal Marines with distinction. With the outbreak of World War I, at last comes Jonathan Blackwood's turn to carry the family name into battle. But as the young marines embark for the Dardanelles, and a new kind of warfare, it dawns on them that the days of scarlet coats and an unchanging tradition of honour and glory have gone forever. First in Gallipoli, and two years later at Flanders, comes their horrifying initiation into a wholesale slaughter for which no training could ever have prepared them. Caught up in the savagery of a conflict beyond any officer's control, Blackwood's future rests on the 'horizon' - the dark lip of the trench which was the last fateful sight for so many.

Book Summary:

Research on gene drive systems is rapidly advancing. Many proposed applications of gene drive research aim to solve environmental and public health challenges, including the reduction of poverty and the burden of vector-borne diseases, such as malaria and dengue, which disproportionately impact low and middle income countries. However, due to their intrinsic qualities of rapid spread and irreversibility, gene drive systems raise many questions with respect to their safety relative to public and environmental health. Because gene drive systems are designed to alter the environments we share in ways that will be hard to anticipate and impossible to completely roll back, questions about the ethics surrounding use of this research are complex and will require very careful exploration. Gene Drives on the Horizon outlines the state of knowledge relative to the science, ethics, public engagement, and risk assessment as they pertain to research directions of gene drive systems and governance of the research process. This report offers principles for responsible practices of gene drive research and related applications for use by investigators, their institutions, the research funders, and regulators.

Book Summary:

Throughout mankind's existence, there has always been a political element. Yet modern politics has evolved to a point of fanatical unrealistic expectations and ideals. Technology, entertainment, and social media have created a delusional yet extravagant world where many are hoodwinked into believing that the solutions to mankind's problems can be controlled by simply maneuvering a joystick, tweeting a perspective, or just singing kumbaya. The notion that one switch can be turned off and another on surpasses all human reason yet seems to be the popular ideology in modern times. A subtle underlying power has replaced realism with an overwhelming inner force for change, with differing views and deep-seated emotions having triggered widespread conflicts and a social erosion never before seen in human history. You will soon discover the force that makes it impossible for humans to find success in governance, undermines their endeavor to bring peace and security to humanity and how this powerful agent actually finds pleasure in anarchy and conflict. Prepare to be astounded as to what will be revealed concerning the rise and fall of human governments and what is in store for these political institutions. I want to thank you for choosing On the Horizon. I am confident you will find it thoroughly mind-boggling, entertaining, and undoubtedly revealing. Because we have a struggle, not against blood and flesh, but against the governments, against the authorities, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the wicked spirit forces in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12)

Book Summary:

"e;If you choose not to fight, consider yourself beaten"e;It is the 1850's. Britannia rules the waves and the Great Exhibition seems to flaunt the Empire's superiority to the World. Until news reaches Britain of a new invention: an American yacht rumoured to be faster than anything built in the Old World.Two men, divided by an ocean, yet united by their desire for glory, are determined to see a race between the American vessel and a British rival. But will the British sailing gentry oblige - or will they refuse to race the upstart newcomer?This is a story about transatlantic rivalry, Victorian snobbery and great sportsmanship. It is the story of the world's oldest international sporting trophy: the America's Cup.Recent endorsements:Tucker Thompson, Public Host 35th America's Cup"e;I loved the book and really enjoyed reading it. It is very well written and I am grateful to have a copy particularly as a relative of George Lee Schuyler one of the owners of AMERICA."e;Steve Mair, Commodore Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron (current holders of the America's Cup)"e;What a great story! Fantastic read and a great backdrop to the event in Bermuda. The richness and depth of the tale is one that sets the tone for the following 34 America's Cup challenges. The attitude in 1851 from the Americans shows significant similarities to New Zealand's involvement over the last 30 years - to prove that a fledgling nation can foot it, and beat, the might of the defenders. A must read for anyone even remotely interested in the America's Cup"e;.Rupert Paget, descendent first Marquess of Anglesey who donated the AAGBP100 Cup in 1851 to the Royal Yacht Squadron (that subsequently became the America's Cup)"e;A very clever combination of fact and fiction. The fact being the AAGBP100 Cup (later the 'America's Cup') of 1851, the fiction being the tale of 2 men who become involved, one from New York and one from London Life in squalid Victorian London and less squalid rural England depicted brilliantly and convincingly. This is a character led story with a good plot, often difficult to find. Would love to say more but don't want to spoil it. Highly recommended. Looking forward to the next volume."e;

Book Summary:

Another of my mystical poetry books in the series: The Language of the Wind. In this book, we look at things from the horizon. But the horizon is just another way of saying the edge. Sometimes when looking at things from the edge, it's the edge of getting happy or the edge of going crazy. Sometimes you're pulled back from the brink just in time. In this book there are White Water Journeys, the Outer Wondrousness, the Perihelion of Bliss, Dreamscapes and Funnels, Wisdom, Cunning, and Loneliness, Rhythms on the Brink, the Inner Marvel, and Heart Tonic. Then we get really close with Approaching the Edge, perhaps a little too closely. Instilling the Edge, You can't get closer than this. Of course that's only true until you do. Then you're on the Far Edge of the Horizon. I've also included a couple of mystical short stories - Miguelito: The smallest sueno (dream). That Hole Inside You, featuring your favorite striped mammal - Skunk. Mystics try to describe the indescribable with words. They bring you in touch with the spiritual world. Some mystical writing is hard to understand. I'd like to think that mine is easy. And some of it is very humorous. Of course, what could be more spiritual than chocolate? I've included two poems on that. Rating G. Reading Level: Very Easy 4th Grade. Longest Word: Tremendousness

Book Summary:

This book is a treasure among the works of Robert Hunter. He spent years crafting this saga but sadly was unable to get it published before his death in 2005. The story is a three generational saga — The focus of the story is that of the life of the oldest girl in a large French-Canadian prairie family, Bernadette. Bernadette is always looking for an escape from the stilted life she experiences. We venture with her and feel what it is like to be a child of the prairies in the early part of the 20th century. Her journey is at times heartfelt, at other times painful, and at the end of a long road, we find that it has always been, human.

The book is a hybrid of fiction and projection, comprehensively including predictions on the future world. Fictional parts of the novel used to vividly portray fictitious figures carrying out national policy to impact on the world order. The prevalent land grab in the Third World now will develop into putting a whole nation on sale if a fortune will be offered to the citizens of target country.

And rivalry in Asia will ignite spread of nuclear arsenals to satisfy their national pride but deep economic integration within the continent will set aside Cold War mentality for mutual prosperity. The gloomy prospect of food & energy will exacerbate the anxiety of contemporaries until awakened leading countries devoting to reverse the nightmare. After the mid-21st century, the haunting effects of climate change and peak oil will capitulate to the ingenuity and will of people, thereby next generation will access closely to a utopian world.

Book Summary:

This volume is the first book-length analysis of the problematic concept of the ‘horizon’ in Edmund Husserl’s phenomenology, as well as in phenomenology generally. A recent arrival on the conceptual scene, the horizon still eludes robust definition. The author shows in this authoritative exploration of the topic that Husserl, the originator of phenomenology, placed the notion of the horizon at the centre of philosophical enquiry. He also demonstrates the rightful centrality of the concept of the horizon, all too often viewed as an imprecise metaphor of tangential significance. His systematic analysis deploys both early and late work by Husserl, as well as hitherto unpublished manuscripts. Opening out the question to include that of the origins of the horizon, the book explores the horizon as philosophical theme or notion, as a figure of intentionality, and as a signification of one’s consciousness of the world—our ‘world-horizon’. It argues that the central philosophical significance of the problematic of the horizon makes itself apparent in realizing how this problematic enriches our philosophical understanding of subjectivity. Systematic, thorough, and revealing, this study of the significance of a core concept in phenomenology will be relevant not only to the phenomenological community, but also to anyone interested in the intersections of phenomenology and other philosophical traditions, such as hermeneutics and pragmatism.​

Book Summary:

This book addresses the spiritual shipwreck of faith that is taking place and is accelerating in these last days before Christ returns. In the last days, perilous times will come because men will love themselves more than God. Christians must understand that in these last days many are heading for spiritual shipwreck through a compromise of Scripture. Knowledge is the wherewithal that will enable us to recognize the deceitfulness of sin, to encourage us to earnestly contend for the faith, and show us how to avoid spiritual shipwreck. If we are not aware of the warning signs of sin, we will be seduced by the temptations of this world to abandon our faith walk. It doesn't happen overnight; it is like a drip of water that keeps dripping until it becomes a puddle, then a pool, then a lake, and then an ocean. Leaven starts off microscopic until it has leavened or corrupted the whole. If we allow a little lethargy, compromise, or seduction in our life, we will not contend for the faith. As we are aware, watchful, and clothed in God's full armor, we will not be shipwrecked no matter how deceitful sin may be.

Book Summary:

Excessive costs, cumbersome processes, disincentives and what's more: all manner of isolated, self-serving sector solutions. A financial system with methods and processes from yesteryear shapes our banking. Indeed, our entire life and society—especially the state and administrative bodies—are based on such archaic processes. In addition, billions of people worldwide are excluded from the financial system as they are not even in possession of a bank account. Banks, currencies, payment methods and administrative transactions are, on the whole, not sustainable. They are responding neither to the needs of many customers/citizens, nor to the challenges of the times. Politically and socially, we are drifting about aimlessly, lacking control and efficiency. Financial expert and entrepreneur Yasin Sebastian Qureshi—at age 29 the youngest person ever licensed to run a European bank—describes groundbreaking solutions that have long been in existence: digitalisation and its offspring the Internet, mobile phones and blockchain which are actively determining progressive developments, and whose most radical embodiment so far has been the rise of Bitcoin an other cryptocurrencies. The revolutionary thing about blockchain, however, is not the mere payment process, but the underlying technology, the more efficient processes and, in particular, its decentralised character and interconnectedness. Together with Benjamin Bilski (Forbes "30 under 30"), Qureshi outlines the future of finance and all the relevant administrative processes in business and state, even entire states, on the basis of such blockchains. The authors also dissect the history, meaning and nature of money; it has always been in a state of transformation—but now is in one of complete upheaval. The two also shed light on the social, economic and political consequences of these mutations. But what will happen if everything is organised into blockchains? The answer is certainly not one that should be feared. The new foundations of our daily and working existence are unleashing forces that have so far been pointlessly and inefficiently tied up in technocratic working environments. Following on from, and leaving behind, the Industrial Revolution, a new revolution is now on the rise. Starting in the financial system, it will turn everything there on its head and qucikly expand to other areas. Blockchain is restoring time and its potential to all us—which we can use for other, better and more creative things. Cash, however, is likely to disappear in the medium term—as well as banks, at least as we know them today..

Book Summary:

Whether onstage or off, Oli Sykes is not one to bite his tongue. As the frontman of Bring Me the Horizon, one of the most polarising bands to emerge from the UK rock scene, he is the commander-in-chief of a band as uncompromising as it is unpredictable, and has led his comrades in a daring assault on the mainstream. But the band has been the source of much controversy to match its acclaim. In just over a decade they have endured drug addiction, brushes with the law, press hostility and even onstage assaults. But nothing has slowed their ascent from underground notoriety to the upper reaches of superstardom. Behind the noise, there is a restless creative energy which has seen Bring Me the Horizon take huge strides from album to album. This book tells their story for the first time, including their first steps into the hardcore scene of Sheffield, emerging from and then outgrowing the so-called 'deathcore' movement and the creation of their defining records. This is how Bring Me the Horizon took on the world and came out on top. Throw me to the Wolves

Book Summary:

This book is part of a large and growing body of work on the observation of analogue gravity effects, such as Hawking radiation, in laboratory systems. The book is highly didactic, skillfully navigating between concepts ranging from quantum field theory on curved space-times, nonlinear fibre optics and the theoretical and experimental foundations in the physics of optical analogues to the Event Horizon. It presents a comprehensive field-theoretical framework for these systems, including the kinematics governing the fields. This allows an analytical calculation of the all-important conversion of vacuum fluctuations into Hawking radiation. Based on this, emission spectra are computed, providing unique insights into the emissions from a highly dispersive system. In an experimental part, the book develops a clear and systematic way to experimentally approach the problem and demonstrates the construction of an experimental setup and measurements of unprecedented sensitivity in the search for stimulation of the Hawking effect.

Book Summary:

In frontier America, a man lives with a pregnant woman who is not his wife. When a stranger appears and advises him to register the baby as his own at a fabled military outpost, the man sets out on a lonely journey across an arid and hostile terrain. Soon after he departs, the stranger kills the woman before setting off in pursuit of the man. As their parallel journeys unfold, we learn of the man’s childhood working with his father on a ship rife with cannibalism and their subsequent life in a port town; we watch the stranger as he assumes many guises to shape-shift his way through history in pursuit of the man, a pawn in his brutal game of rewriting the founding myths of the American West. Menacing, visceral and lyrical, Beyond the Horizon is an audacious debut: an astonishing sojourn into the darkest parts of Western lore that showcases a bold and enormous new talent in contemporary fiction.

Book Summary:

Author John Edmonds was given something very few were given: insight on the day he died. For the twenty-five minutes when his physical body was without a heartbeat, his spiritual self soared to a great and profound epiphany. On this impossible journey, he was given a glimpse into a greater truth as he learned of his thirty-three previous incarnations on this earth. Among his past lives, he was an Inuit kinsman, a father, a doctor, a seafarer, an ancient pagan chieftain, and a monk. He was allowed to revisit a former life in which he and Jesus Christ, his dearest soul brother, lived in a town called Bethany. There, they shared in His love and wisdom. At night, as the blazing winter fires burned, they partook of the Divine. John and his sisters clothed Him, bathed Him, and anointed His feet. In return, He saved them in every possible way. Their hearts were torn to learn of His great suffering. He was the One, the Messiah. He was Christ Jesus, and He was John’s dearest friend. These are John’s tales of a past life spent in the blessed company of Christ Jesus, his brother, his flesh, and his blood—his very personal recollection of an extraordinary friendship and love. It chronicles an epic journey from ancient times to the present day, a journey far beyond the realm of the living. This is the story of his fascinating and compelling nonphysical experience and the instruction he received during his time on the other side. His is an astonishing tale of survival, courage, revelation, and inconceivable willpower.

Book Summary:

A Kirkus Reviews Best Middle Grade Book of 2019 A Japanese-American family, reeling from their ill treatment in the Japanese internment camps, gives up their American citizenship to move back to Hiroshima, unaware of the devastation wreaked by the atomic bomb in this piercing look at the aftermath of World War II by Newbery Medalist Cynthia Kadohata. World War II has ended, but while America has won the war, twelve-year-old Hanako feels lost. To her, the world, and her world, seems irrevocably broken. America, the only home she’s ever known, imprisoned then rejected her and her family—and thousands of other innocent Americans—because of their Japanese heritage, because Japan had bombed Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Japan, the country they’ve been forced to move to, the country they hope will be the family’s saving grace, where they were supposed to start new and better lives, is in shambles because America dropped bombs of their own—one on Hiroshima unlike any other in history. And Hanako’s grandparents live in a small village just outside the ravaged city. The country is starving, the black markets run rampant, and countless orphans beg for food on the streets, but how can Hanako help them when there is not even enough food for her own brother? Hanako feels she could crack under the pressure, but just because something is broken doesn’t mean it can’t be fixed. Cracks can make room for gold, her grandfather explains when he tells her about the tradition of kintsukuroi—fixing broken objects with gold lacquer, making them stronger and more beautiful than ever. As she struggles to adjust to find her place in a new world, Hanako will find that the gold can come in many forms, and family may be hers.
