A Smell of Africa - Safe in His Arms

By Kuruvilla, Bill

This book is a narration of my own life experiences while I was working in Africa namely, in Zambia, and in Mozambique as an Electrical Engineer in 1970s. Many life-threatening incidents were happening to me in sequence during the period. With a happy and god-fearing mind I faced them all, believing in God's wonderful guidance and care-taking. As neighboring countries, South Africa, and Rhodesia were not independent at that time, guerilla warfare was at its peak. Several such instances have been brought to light in this book. More over, the ever-enjoyable panorama of African nature and its wildlife is also described to an extent, especially, my visit to a national park called Gorongosa which is a "Living Aden" near Beira, in Mozambique. Thus the book is made more enjoyable to a reader of any age. The book contains over 100 pages Click Here to Purchase.

Facing a World Without Love

By Roland Huber

From the time he began his life as a "throwaway child", clearly, some crucial pieces of Ron Huber's life had been missing: Parents. Love. Self-esteem. A helping hand. Cruelly abandoned at an early age by his alcoholic parents, Ron and his brother, Vic, were left to rot in a poisoned, rat-infested slum with no food, heat, or electricity. For the next long decade, Ron and Vic suffered unbearably as they were shipped from one brutal foster care home to another. Not soon enough it was time for Ron to break loose from the chains of the mental and physical restraints of the welfare and foster care system and strike out on his own with newfound and well-deserved hope to halt the runaway turbulence of his young life. From a throwaway child to a top federal government executive, this is Ron Huber's remarkable true story of bravery, gallantry and recovery from a system which today poses a national crisis. Foster care provides for half a million "nowhere to go" children and, of that half a million, a shocking 80 percent of the children end up in prisons. This account of Ron's life sends a powerful message to those unfortunate victims of a foster home care existence today of unswerving hope and optimism that one day you will find a world WITH unquestionable love to wipe away all the tears of your saddened, inhumane, hurt, your torturous loneliness, your savage abuse, and the tears from your humiliating defeats. It will come. Click Here to Purchase.

When she discovers that her Father is dead and she questions why he will not talk to her and he is cold to her touch. She is told he is dead and we have to take him out and let the bugs eat him. She is enraged. Two months later this red headed child is thrown out of school for fighting. Any wonder why? All of this happened to this one little girl within the space of eight months. One might, at first believe no, this is not a true story. This must be a fictional fantasy. Oh no! Not so, this is a real true story. The village this story is set in does not agree one iota that this is a child with a big problem, that perhaps needs help. At the age of thirteen the village throws her out of the Church. The one saving grace for this little red headed girl was her big brother who decided to create his own idea of a lil Iodine of his little sister. He taught her to put up her dukes and fight it out with him. Then the war began with this town and this little girl . She went to war with them and she took no prisoners. She won her wars. She would say thanks to her idol, her big brother. She credits her big brother for helping her to be able to withstand the wars she was compelled to deal with in this rural and rough valley in West Virginia. Go into the bowels of Ground Hog Holler on the millstream there you will find this little girls real secrets. Her ship rock. She called it her rock of Ages. She carried all her hopes and dreams to her ship Rock. She read her Bible there. She would sit on her rock and tell herself,some day I am going to steer you right out of here into the out there. The out there being Florida where she ended up for the rest of her life. Retiring from At&T Telephone Company after thirty three years. It was on her ship rock that she plotted her departure from this awful environment. You would think this will always be a child of disaster. Not so, this child created her own successes and continues growing and accomplishing at the age of seventy five. She took the marker with her on down the road and created her own success. She would say of the town she grew up in to be a success there all you had to do was paint your house white. Not a joke. She gives the credit for her success to her dear Mother, whose wisdom it was that kept her in school when she is certain she would have quit and therefore would have become a failure. There is something to be derived from surviving this type of shattered life we are sometimes compelled to live. You cannot run away from the ashes of a broken life. You must build from the ashes. This book is written in strong colloquial flavor. It tells reader about the harsh, and heart-wrenching, traumatic events that could happen to any of us.Show more Click Here to Purchase.

Behold, the Salesperson

By Cox Jr., Robert M.

With a joltingly informative notebook style, "Behold the Salesperson" seems tailor made for reading in snippets. Topic by topic Bob Cox reveals what it takes to be a GOOD salesperson from dedication to clients to organization. Much maligned, (the most recent term I heard was "Shovel-Nosed Rat Snake") salespeople actually create commerce and wealth. Think about it - true professionals provide jobs for everybody involved in the design, manufacture, transportation and distribution of the products they sell. Buyers would be well advised to read "Behold the Salesperson" for a little perspective - professional salespeople always welcome refresher courses and support (after all - how would YOU feel if you got turned down 90% of the time?).

EPA and Superfund, a Small Business Story

By Cox Jr., Robert M.

Robert Cox tells the story of how his successful family business endured good and bad times, but it couldn't survive an ambush from the Environmental Protection Agency. According to EPA, Cox's business, the Gilbert Spruance Company, committed the 'crime' of sending its waste products to legal disposal facilities. Cox does a good job detailing the real crime: EPA implementation of the federal Superfund law. Superfund was supposed to clean up contaminated property, but has become a small business nightmare, condemning parties unjustly and destroying businesses of honest, hard working Americans. Knowing that he is one among thousands of Americans who suffered under Superfund, Cox offers his story as a desperate plea to lawmakers to finally reform this unjust law. Click Here to Purchase.

A Collection of the Life and Work of Meta Vaux Warrick Fuller 1877-1968

By Shonnette Koontz

My first knowledge of the brilliant sculptor, Meta Vaux Warrick Fuller was early in my employment at West Virginia State University (WVSU) when some of her sculptures were exhibited in 1986, in the Drain-Jordan Library by her grandson, Dr. John L. Fuller, Sr., Director of Registration and Records. At the time of the exhibit I worked in the Reference Department, and I soon became aware that by searching the catalog of books that the collection contains many titles with an article, a biography, or a critical review on this courageous, remarkable and talented woman who was also an illustrator and a writer. She studied at the Pennsylvania School of Industrial Arts. In 1903, she exhibited two of her works, The Impenitent Thief and The Wretched, in the Paris Salon. Meta Fuller’s interest in sculpture led her to study with Charles Grafly and at the Academie Colarossi in Paris with the renowned sculptor Auguste Rodin, who had much praise for her work. She was the first African-American woman to become a professional artist. One of her sculptures The Ravages of War was donated by her family to WVSU, and is on display in the Drain-Jordan Library. Her sculptures are on display at several museums across the country including the Danforth Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum, The Boston Museum of Afro-American Art, The Harmon Foundation Collection at The National Archives in Washington, D.C., Howard University in Washington, D.C., Maryhill Museum of Art, Washington Museum of Afro-American History in Boston, The San Francisco Museum of Fine Arts, and the Schomburg Collection–New York Public Library.

Beyond the 4-D Perspective: The Pegasus Method

By Bailey, Virginia H.

The continuing influx and blending of cultures in the United States has created an alarming trend in our educational system – the exclusion and ignoring of the special needs of children for whom English is a second language. Education’s inability to recognize and incorporate solutions to these needs lay the foundation for problems that begin in the classroom and continue throughout the child’s life, effecting self-esteem and future interest in learning. In her book, "Beyond the 4-D Perspective: The Pegasus Method," Virginia Hurt Bailey explores how deficit, disability, delay and dysfunction constitute the "4-D Perspective," or the key elements to recognize while teaching those children whose secondary language (and culture) is English. Intended for use by any educator, Bailey’s manual advocates fixing the methods by which these children are taught; changing the teacher’s perspective of the student and presentation can effectively help students overcome their difficulties in learning. Bailey explains specific methods by which educators can learn to overcome the obstacles of teaching culturally diverse students, as she explores how teachers have contributed to the problem of isolating those who are not a part of the mainstream American education system. Included in the manual are diagrams, sample lesson plans, worksheets and more than eighty-two charts and diagrams. An impressive examination of a growing need within America to approach each child individually and recognize their specific learning needs, "Beyond the 4-D Perspective: The Pegasus Method" is a teacher’s tool that was born of experience teaching multicultural children, but whose lessons apply to everyone.

London's Necropolis: A Guide to Brookwood Cemetery

By John M. Clarke

The History Press Ltd (29 April 2004) In the mid-nineteenth century the volume of London's dead was causing considerable public concern. So in 1850 the idea of a great metropolitan cemetery, situated in the suburbs and large enough to contain all of London's dead for an indefinite period, was promoted. The outcome was Brookwood Cemetery, the largest burial ground in the world when it was opened in 1854 by the London Necropolis & Mausoleum Company. The cemetery, which now contains almost 240,000 burials, is still privately owned and adminstered - and a draft report by the Home Office suggests that it has the potential to become a World Heritage Site. London's Necropolis is a guide to the art and architecture of Brookwood, and also includes brief biographies of over 800 individuals of interest who have been buried here - reflecting all levels of society. Each chapter is supported by maps, and there are about 100 black and white photographs to illustrate some of the most interesting memorials and cemetery buildings. Click Here to Purchase.

The Brookwood Necropolis Railway (Locomotion Papers)

By John M. Clarke

Oakwood Press; 4th rev. and enlarged ed edition (2006) The return of an Oakwood Press favourite which has been much enlarged for this Fourth Edition. The fascination continues in what must surely have been one of the most unusual train services to operate on a British railway - the service operated from London Waterloo to Brookwood Necropolis, near Woking. The book tells how the railway conveyed the deceased and their accompanying mourners to their final resting place, the Brookwood Necropolis, which at one time was the largest cemetery in the world. The Necropolis was originally promoted as concerns about public health in the nation’s capital and elsewhere had increased, London having suffered its first cholera epidemic in the mid-19th century. The service finally ceased shortly after World War II. The railway has been the inspiration for two novels, read the full true story of this remarkable railway which author John Clarke has been studying for more than 25 years. The Brookwood Necropolis Railway had many unusual features, in the cemetery there were two stations one for the Anglican section and another for the Non-Conformists and even after death class distinctions were made with first, second or third class coffin tickets available. Somewhat surprisingly there were licensed premises at the stations. Visitors to the station bars have said that there were notices displayed stating ‘Spirits served here’! This much enlarged new edition, which includes expanded text and a number of new photographs, is to A5 format, with 192 pages of art paper. Amongst its 115 illustrations are photographs, maps, building plans, track layouts and plans of special rolling stock used on the line as well as tickets and other ephemera connected to the railway and the Necropolis company. This new edition also has a large pull-out map of Brookwood Necropolis. The book is perfect-bound with a laminated card cover and square-backed spine. Click Here to Purchase.

Obsession

By Gwynne Forster

Failure to secure a coveted partnership was the driving force behind Selena Sutton's move to Texas. Wanting a low stress, small town life with people who would accept her for herself, Selena packed her bags and headed to Waverly, Texas. She took a job as a psychological counselor and began a new chapter in her life. Her new home gives her the change she needed, until one man's greed and desire leave Selena in the hospital. Then she finds herself being protected by a very unlikely person- her attacker's brother. But who will protect her from losing her heart to Magnus Cooper? Magnus fell for Selena the moment she arrived in Waverly. She wasn't his type, of course- too much like his cold-as-ice mother. But that doesn't stop Magnus from wanting Selena, or wanting to protect her when his brother Prince assaults her. Magnus's problems with his brother go way back, but he is determined that Prince will never get his hands on Selena. Not if he has anything to say about it. Gwynne Forster's Obsession is a fast-paced, suspenseful tale of two brothers at war and a woman caught in the middle. The heat between Selena and Magnus is as hot as Texas chili from page one, and the love scenes sizzle.

Profiles in Betrayal: The Enemy Within

By Adams, Christopher S.

Profiles In Betrayal: The Enemy Within is a sequel to his first novel, Red Eagle, and carries the theme of Soviet secret police operations, spying and espionage to a new level. Following the assassination of President Kennedy and the discovery that the accused assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, had lived in the Soviet Union for three years prior to the murder, historical Soviet paranoia erupted. The main character of the story, “Sasha” Katsanov, is a highly trained and skilled Soviet GRU agent-spy who is once again sent back into the United States undercover to attempt to determine if Oswald, the accused assassin, was in fact under the influence of the KGB, other Soviet interests, or did he act alone. The historical rivalry between the two principal Soviet intelligence agencies, the GRU and the KGB, is rekindled with numerous violent attempts on the part of the latter to thwart Sasha’s mission. Kidnapping, torture and murder, a normal part of the KGB’s modus operandi, to influence and exert power and control were put to full use in attempts to sabotage Sasha’s investigation. Within the U.S., the Intelligence Community was also in turmoil over its respective failure to monitor the activities of the accused assassin, Oswald, both while he lived in the Soviet Union and after he returned. Profiles In Betrayal will not only keep the reader gripped by the exceptional realism of the story as well as the clever plot development. Click Here to Purchase.

Vincent's Vengeance

By Sheila DeLong

A young nurse, Sara Dautry--whose autistic brother, Vince, has been arrested for the murder of their Catholic priest--decides to conduct her own investigation. Refusing to believe that he committed the crime, even though he was found at the murder scene with the alleged weapon, she convinces her former nursing-school study group to help her prove his innocence by using hypnosis to travel back to the moment of the crime. When the FBI finds out her plan, they try to stop her by using weather manipulation. They fear that if she does find out the truth about the priest's murder, she will want to go public with the information-especially since it could incriminate them. And when the Vatican learns that the crime scene was damaged by wind to possibly hide evidence, they think the U.S. government may have been involved. Then for fear of hostility between the Vatican and the U.S., the CIA launches their own investigation. Along the way, Sara learns that Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh and the Shroud of Turin have some hidden secrets that could change the way believers think about the Roman Catholic Church. She also learns that it's not always a good idea to experiment with science. Thus by unraveling a massive conspiracy involving powerful political players, Sara's life--as well as the lives of her friends and family--is put in danger. Click Here to Purchase.

Whatever It Takes

By Gwynne Forster

The twins, Lacette and Kellie, grew up in the Christian home of Reverend Marshall and Mrs. Cynthia Graham. At 33, the girls are as identical in looks as their personalities are opposite. Lacette learned at an early age to give into Kellie's manipulation. Kellie's covetous and competitive nature seeks out Lacette's things, as well as her boyfriends. Cynthia has contributed to Kellie's behavior by never holding her accountable for her behavior. Marshall does not set Kellie straight either, but he does protect Lacette from Kellie's outbursts. With no explanation, Cynthia and Marshall separate, and he moves out of the parsonage. After the maternal grandmother's will is read, Kellie decides that she wants the broach that was left to Lacette. With Marshall staying at a hotel, the Graham women begin to live distant and separate lives--Cynthia is floating through a midlife crisis, Lacette has purchased her own house and started a business, and Kellie is on the warpath to get that broach. Everyone learns--at a price--that doing whatever it takes has consequences. Click Here to Purchase.

Hazing Aging

By Robert L. Buckingham, MD, FACP

When you get older, your joints don’t have to hurt, your heart doesn’t have to fail, and your brain doesn’t have to rot. But all those things will likely happen—and you’ll be a shell of your former self—if you don’t manage your health properly. Dr. Robert Buckingham, a practicing physician for thirty-six years, has seen and experienced the consequences of aging firsthand, and he provides insights and advice so you can get older joyfully and gracefully. He focuses on the vascular endothelium, which is a group of cells that line the body’s blood vessels. These cells have evolved in both structure and function to facilitate efficient and specific exchanges between blood and organs. In the process, they communicate with other endothelial cells, immune cells, proteins, and other end organs. From regulating immune surveillance, clotting or blood flow, these cells are constantly assessing, adapting, and signaling to help the body carry out critical functions. By focusing on the health of these cells, you’ll improve end-organ function, reverse adverse effects of aging, and live a happier life. Start taking care of yourself, and make healthy living a reality by Hazing Aging. Click Here to Purchase.

Herbs of Southern Ecuador: A Field Guide to the Medicinal Plants of Vilcabamba

By Bejar, Ezra

Secrets of Youth in Southern Ecuador? Vilcabamba, (in the Quechua language “holly valley”) located in Southern Ecuador, is known to gerontologists as one of three places in the world with the largest population of elderly people. This valley is known as an "island of immunity and a pool of longevity." The favorable climate, water quality, proper nutrition and use of herbs allow inhabitants to survive to a high age in a remarkable state of fitness. Until now the " herbal wisdom of the age" has not been documented. An international team of scientists (including medical anthropology, ethnobotany and ethnopharmacology) contacted the only elderly curandero living in San Pedro de Vilcabamba, Don Cruz Roa. After establishing a solid relationship with him, the team meticulously organized local herbal wisdom in a coherent and succinct manner for transmission to future generations. For the first time the secrets of herbal wisdom of Vilcabamba are available to the public. Herbs of Southern Ecuador provides exciting information about the expedition to Ecuador, the field methodology, and complete ethnobotanical information on more than 140 herbs. It includes vernacular and scientific names, families and synonyms, illustrations, botanical descriptions, origins, geographic coordinates, as well as ecology, traditional classification, uses, preparation, parts used, and administration. The information is in Spanish and English, for easy cross-reference, containing excellent indices by scientific and vernacular names and a comprehensive bibliography Click Here to Purchase.

Our Health, Our Lives-A Revolutionary Approach to Total Health Care for Women

By Eileen Hoffman

This comprehensive, highly accessible guide to women's physical and mental health seeks to empower women to take charge of their health, much as did its inspirational source, 1973's Our Bodies, Ourselves. Hoffman, a New York City internist and co-founder of the Women's Health Project, however, encourages readers to work within the medical system rather than explore alternative therapies. Citing chilling facts about the inadequacies of health care for women, she maintains that a woman's physiology can affect disease progression and argues for an interdisciplinary primary care specialty in women's health. More than just an enlightening discussion on primary care for women, this guide provides practical medical advice in many areas. In direct, almost conversational prose, Hoffman devotes chapters to such diseases as cancer, osteoporosis and heart disease, leading readers through the practice of identifying conditions, reducing risks and screening for early detection. A section on choosing a doctor offers a thoughtful analysis of the differences between how men and women practice medicine. The author quotes an editorial in the Journal of the American Medical Association, describing women's health care as, "a patchwork quilt with gaps." With this passionate and personal guide, Hoffman does much to make the quilt whole. Click Here to Purchase.

Ideologies in Conflict : A Cold War Docu-Story

By Adams, Christopher S.

The author characterizes this book as a "docu-story". As such, it is an exceptionally well-researched and skillfully written chronology of the history of Russia, the Soviet Union and the cold War. The work is unusual and unique. It is unusual because unlike most books of an historical nature, it is free-flowing and not tightly structured. It is unique because it is written with considerable input from the author's personal experiences interwoven with perceptions and anecdotal observations. The work is Assertive: "I have no doubt that there was Cold War. I fought in it." (The Author); Candid: "Stalin is an unconscionable dictator, but I liked the little son-of-a-bitch." (Truman); Provocative: "Truman is worthless." (Stalin); and Challenging: "Why not set a goal, just between the two of us; let's find a practical way to solve our critical issues." (Reagan) and "we can set a specific agenda for how to straighten-out Soviet-American relations." (Gorbachev). Finally, it is Cautionary: "The world has become in many respects a safer place, unfortunately, it is also still a dangerous place, fraught with uncertainty." (Commander-in-Chief, US Strategic Command) and: "The missile force is in the same state of readiness as ten years ago. My men and my missiles are always ready."

The book focuses on five key concepts of the modern geopolitical imagination: visualizing the world as a whole; the definition of geographical areas as 'advanced' or 'primitive'; the notion of the state being the highest form of political organization; the pursuit of primacy by competing states; and the necessity for hierarchy.

The Fraternity: Lawyers And Judges In Collusion

By Molloy, John F.

As lawyer and judge for half a century, John Fitzgerald Molloy has both profited from our legal system and seen how it has been altered in favor of lawyers, to the detriment of society. The book starts with the evolution of the Fraternity, with the author using vivid descriptions of particular cases in which he was involved. He shows that the legal profession has continuously re-shaped the law, in subtle but significant ways, to make legal services ever more necessary—and more lucrative for the Fraternity. The power the Fraternity now exercises, including the power to decide President Bush over Gore, has been accomplished by creating a new religion, that of worshiping the Constitution in ways the founders did not intend—with lawyers and judges the priests of that religion. Lawyers may not appreciate the revelations in this book, but they should be very interested, for this author knows the profession well, and his analysis will resonate with their own experience. For those who have been appalled by the large fees charged for lawyers’ services, this book will be an enlightenment. For those who appreciate vignettes coming from some of the most interesting cases hitting our courts, this book will be captivating. Molloy documents terrible deficiencies in our legal system and presents practical solutions, such as separating the bench and the bar as is done in other countries in the world. Other publications that decry the ascendancy of lawyers offer no suggestion as to how their power can be curbed. This book does. Click Here to Purchase.

Religion

Awake America

By Barlane Ronald "IKE" Eichbaum

The United States entered the third century of its existence facing many social, political, and religious issues. Socialism, Communism, and terrorism are such threats. Christianity is not practiced as in the past. Many US citizens neglect the Word of God, and moral decay has risen rapidly. May our people seek God's direction, as per II Chronicles 7:14, so God will bless America and its future. American patriots like Billy Graham, J. Edgar Hoover, and William Buckley expressed facts, thoughts, and quotations in the field of politics, religion, law, defense, energy, environment, and economics. Presently our military power is being reduced. Author Barlane Eichbaum relates biblical prophecy and writings on the Greek, Roman, and British empires to American maladies. These same signs of decay have led other once-great powers to their downfall. This historical and biblical perspective that Eichbaum possesses is a strong plus for Awake America.
