Book Excerpt :

A heartfelt, funny memoir about how a kitten rescue project changed one cynic’s life… Journalist Heather Green was finally putting down roots: in shiny, buzzing Manhattan. She loved her work and threw herself into sixty-hour weeks—once walking into a subway pole, getting a concussion, and still going to the office. Her new boyfriend Matt lived across the river in a New Jersey town that had none of the glamour of New York. She liked Matt—a lot—yet she wasn’t sure what to make of weekends in gritty, dilapidated Union City. But things changed the summer morning Heather discovered a beautiful stray cat and her three black-and-white kittens in Matt’s neighbor’s backyard. When she made eye contact with one of the kittens, she felt something she’d never felt before. She and Matt had to save the little animals. Because if they didn’t, who would? The crazy world of cat rescue soon drew Heather in. As she and Matt worked together to figure out how to trap, tame, and find homes for their foundlings, she began to question the life she had back in Manhattan. This is the story of how three furry beings taught one woman about love, community, and what truly matters in life.

Book Short Summary:

EVERYONE HAS A PLIMSOLL MARK The white line you see on cargo ships and many ocean liners is called the Plimsoll Mark and tells when the ship is being overloaded. If a load is too heavy, it causes the ship to sink past its white line, and that ship is in a dangerous state. People have Plimsoll Marks beyond which nerves crack and pep, vitality, vim, and vigor are drowned. A person who has sunk over his own Plimsoll Mark also is in danger. The favorite expression of Modern Man is “I’m bushed.” Of Modern Woman, it is “I’m worn to a frazzle.” Had each been aware of his own Plimsoll Mark, neither would have had use for such common expressions. The purpose of this book is to help people find their Plimsoll Marks in life, and in so doing forestall premature old age, needless worry, fatigue, lack of pep, vitality and vigor to carry on. By following a few common sense rules, plus some new scientific discoveries, anyone can learn how to remain above his personal Plimsoll Mark and prolong his life’s span...and add happiness and success. As you will see, it is a simple matter to calculate and determine your own Plimsoll Mark—the point beyond which you should never sink.—Elmer Wheeler

“Edgar winner Kaminsky offers plenty of nostalgic fun” as Hollywood PI Toby Peters teams up with Cary Grant in this World War II–era spy romp (Publishers Weekly). Since the start of World War II, Cary Grant has been working undercover in Hollywood as a spy for the British crown. When a ring of Nazi sympathizers gets wise, they start blackmailing the debonair leading man. Now Grant has hired Toby Peters to handle the payoff. But when the blackmailer is killed, the rumpled detective and the suave movie star are thrust into a complex plot of murder, money, and Nazi spies, leading to a literal cliffhanger . . . “For anyone with a taste for old Hollywood B-movie mysteries, Edgar winner Kaminsky offers plenty of nostalgic fun in his 22nd book to feature good-natured, unprepossessing sleuth Toby Peters . . . Toby and the acrobatic Grant at his lithe best make an appealing team. The tone is light, the pace brisk, the tongue firmly in cheek.” —Publishers Weekly

Book Short Summary:

Birth from her mother womb as the mouth piece for God, evolved the anointed infallible, woman of God, Prophetess Antoinette M. White. As God molded her in His hands, He purposed her for His works and for His people. From the cradle to the pulpit this Prophetess was destined to bring forth the word of God with the anointing and power. Hearing the call in her tender years, Antoinette began her ministry with a Yes Lord, her am I, and sojourns her call in the path of ministerial greatness. With an ear to hear His voice, and her affections toward heavenly matters, this Prophetess is unmovable and unstoppable on her mission. In her childhood years it was evident Antoinette was a gifted child; peculiar, anointed and called to ministry. As the gift of prophecy manifested through her voice, and prophetic dreams became perceptible through full materialization, the mantel as Gods Prophetess was apparent. Prophetess White is the wife of the powerful Apostle Michael S. White Jr. and mother of six children. These two anointed vessels established Remnant Apostolic Prophetic Outreach (wwwrapoutreach.org).

  • Pdf File: topics-in-kwa-syntax.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This book grew out of a concern we have had that very many theoretical and descriptive work on the Kwa languages were not accessible to the general linguistic community. As a result, these languages were only referred to in the context of very specific discussions such as serial verb constructions. But as the reader of this book will notice, syntactic topics discussed in the context of Kwa range from bare nouns, relative clauses, negation, discourse markers and the interaction with the clausal periphery, to argument structure. Many issues remain that need to be brought to the fore of the community and we hope that this book will trigger the curiosity of the reader to get to know more about these languages. Much of the work presented here could not have been possible without the help of many colleagues and the contri- tors whom we thank warmly for joining this enterprise. We are also grateful to the editors of the series, Marcel den Dikken, Joan Maling, Liliane Haegeman to have offered us this platform to initiate the debate about Kwa. We will also like to thank Helen van der Stelt and Jolanda Voogd from Springer for their kind collaboration and patience. We are also very grateful to Joscelyn Essegbey and Leston Buell for helping with editing the manuscript. Enoch, O.

When he was young, he said, "I grant you a lifetime of glory." She refused. "I am of noble birth, and I have no lack of gold or silver." He said, "Then I grant you the only love in the world." She smiled sweetly. "Alright. You said it, you can't go back on your word. " He hugged her. "Never go back on your word." When he returned to the capital, he would face the battles of the palace, the struggles of the houses, his loved ones, his power, his desires ... Her intelligence had become the capital of planning, but it was all for the protection of the people closest to her. Imperial authority, power, he had plotted step by step just to be able to protect her in the open. When things got out of her control step by step, what would she and he choose? What would the grudges of the previous generation bring to them? Could they not forget their original intentions and stay together until they become old? Thinking back to the past, she looked at him, smiling sadly. "Let go, I'm tired from love." "Don't even think about it." Xuanyuan Yi Chen ignored her struggles and forcefully imprisoned her within his embrace, "Since you've provoked me, you shouldn't even think about escaping for the rest of your life." He bit her lips.

Book Short Summary:

Love your cat, but hate its bad behavior? According to The Humane Society of the United States, body language, behavior, and vocalizations are keys to understanding the feline mind. If your cat seems to be constantly aloof or is exhibiting bad behavior, you may often wish you could speak directly to it about what it is thinking. Fortunately, you can communicate and understand your pet by studying its behavior and using the techniques found throughout this book. By observing a cat’s body language and actions, we can guess at how it might be feeling. Want to know why your cat constantly hisses at strangers, frequently sulks, or attacks your feet while you are sleeping? How to Listen to Your Cat covers major aspects of feline behavior, including social behavior, protection of territory, hunting tactics, reproduction, and interaction with people and other pets. This book explores an array of behaviors often found in cats and what these behaviors should signal to their owners. Learning to communicate with your kitty can help you know when it’s hungry, ready to play, content, or lonely. You will learn the importance of positive reinforcement, details on how a cat learns, how to develop a bond with your cat, and the basics of cat training. This book explores how to teach your feline friend to use the litter box, come when you call its name, and tolerate touch and grooming. Teach your cat useful behaviors, such as walking on a leash, sitting, staying, and standing, along with fun behaviors, such as shaking hands, begging, and fetching. Comfort, fright, and hunger are the main feelings displayed among cats. The feelings result in a variety of behaviors. This book provides a breakdown of how these feelings are shown through changes in a cat’s eyes, ears, mouth, tail, and posture. The tone of a cat’s cry, the perk of its ears, and the sway of its tail can provide clues as to its intentions. This book also analyzes the different sounds cats make, including purring, hissing, spitting, and growling, and how these sounds tell owners what their cat is feeling. A variety of emotions displayed in cats will be analyzed, such as behaviors that suggest comfort, satisfaction with food, a welcomed greeting, sleepiness, safety, and much more. This book also offers photos so you can spot similar behavior in your own pet. Cats are known to have a variety of personalities. These personalities and how they relate to different breeds are explored. Tips on training your cat and preventing or stopping bad behavior are given to promote peacefully cohabitation with your feline friend. Advice is provided for addressing typical problem behaviors among cats, including destructive scratching, spraying, aggression, eating plants, and litter box issues. We have spent hundreds of hours interviewing veterinarians, animal trainers/behaviorists, and cat owners like yourself to compile useful information that will create a more harmonious relationship between you and your cat. As pet owners, we have a responsibility to ensure our pets are happy and safe; this book will serve as a tool for measuring these factors. Now, with the help of this book, you can love your cat and understand its behavior.

WHEN IS A WHITE ALLIGATOR A RED HERRING? Okay, granted, an albino alligator on the loose in San Francisco is pretty darn exciting. But my two cats, Rupert and Isabella, and I have better things to do than tail a reptile from Nob Hill to Fisherman’s Wharf. We’re investigating the mysterious Steinhart brothers, the 1900s-era benefactors who provided the original funding for Clive the alligator’s aquarium. Follow the money, as my uncle Oscar used to say… In the media circus surrounding Clive, one clown gets a little too close to the renegade gator—our very own aspiring mayor, Montgomery Carmichael. We’d hate to see Monty meet an undignified end, but we’re on a hunt of our own—for Uncle Oscar’s latest treasure. Of course, that’s assuming the whole thing isn’t a crock…

Book Short Summary:

This book is an accumulation of Master Marvin Smalheisers writing in the Tai Chi magazine from its inception in 1977 till 2016. Master Smalheiser was the editor and the owner of Tai Chi magazine, and he published only an article related to tai chi. He was a practitioner as well as a teacher. He lived what he thought was the best way of lifehelpful, humble, and down-to-earth. This book covers many aspects and benefits of tai chi as a martial art that Master Smalheiser felt to write about. Some of the topics are meditation, relaxation, self-defense, the types of tai chi, history, health, personal interviews with masters in the US and abroad, and more. It was Master Smalheisers wish to write books about tai chi, but his untimely death did not allow him to get the books done. I do not know much about tai chi; therefore, I gathered some of his writings and made this book to benefit all the tai chi practitioners as Master Smalheiser wanted. It is my wish that the tai chi enthusiasts will enjoy the book and remember Master Marvin Smalheiser.

Book Short Summary:

We are a weird species. Like other species, we have a culture. But by comparison with other species, we are strangely unstable: human cultures self-transform, diverge, and multiply with bewildering speed. They vary, radically and rapidly, from time to time and place to place. And the way we live — our manners, morals, habits, experiences, relationships, technology, values — seems to be changing at an ever accelerating pace. The effects can be dislocating, baffling, sometimes terrifying. Why is this? In A Foot in the River, best-selling historian Felipe Fernández-Armesto sifts through the evidence and offers some radical answers to these very big questions about the human species and its history — and speculates on what these answers might mean for our future. Combining insights from a huge range of disciplines, including history, biology, anthropology, archaeology, philosophy, sociology, ethology, zoology, primatology, psychology, linguistics, the cognitive sciences, and even business studies, he argues that culture is exempt from evolution. Ultimately, no environmental conditions, no genetic legacy, no predictable patterns, no scientific laws determine our behaviour. We can consequently make and remake our world in the freedom of unconstrained imaginations. A revolutionary book which challenges scientistic assumptions about culture and how and why cultural change happens, A Foot in the River comes to conclusions which readers may well find by turns both daunting and also potentially hugely liberating.

Book Short Summary:

A reserved debutante and a former soldier make an unlikely but fated match as they hasten for the Isle of Skye. Orphaned heiress Olivia de Vere should have the world--or at least the men of the ton--at her feet. But when she's thrown out of a young ladies' academy, Olivia doubts she'll ever find someone who will love her, rather than her bank account. To make matters worse, her dissolute cousin Felix is determined to marry her against her wishes. A virtual prisoner in her guardians' London townhouse, Olivia can’t help but develop a tendre for her neighbor, a handsome Scottish marquess. Battle-scarred in more ways than one, Hamish MacQueen, Lord Sleat, has braved many dangers in life. But nothing has quite prepared him for the shock of having a young child dumped on his doorstep, with a note claiming she’s his daughter. Just in the nick of time his pretty neighbor appears, offering to act as a nursemaid for the young girl on their journey to his estate in Scotland. He suspects she has her own reasons for wanting to flee the country… The close traveling quarters leads to a fierce attraction between Olivia and Hamish that seems impossible to resist. But when ghosts from the past and monsters from the present threaten to tear them apart, will their unlikely love survive?

Book Short Summary:

This national bestseller exploring the complex emotional lives of animals was hailed as "a masterpiece" by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas and as "marvelous" by Jane Goodall. The popularity of When Elephants Weep has swept the nation, as author Jeffrey Masson appeared on Dateline NBC, Good Morning America, and was profiled in People for his ground-breaking and fascinating study. Not since Darwin's The Expression of Emotions in Man and Animals has a book so thoroughly and effectively explored the full range of emotions that exist throughout the animal kingdom. From dancing squirrels to bashful gorillas to spiteful killer whales, Masson and coauthor Susan McCarthy bring forth fascinating anecdotes and illuminating insights that offer powerful proof of the existence of animal emotion. Chapters on love, joy, anger, fear, shame, compassion, and loneliness are framed by a provocative re-evaluation of how we treat animals, from hunting and eating them to scientific experimentation. Forming a complete and compelling picture of the inner lives of animals, When Elephants Weep assures that we will never look at animals in the same way again.

Book Short Summary:

Humankind’s progress has always been driven by two momentums: the pursuit of truth and the creation of value. But our understanding of value, and our ability to reflect on its complexity, has long lagged behind our constant search for truth. This has, in turn limited our grasp of the essence of truth. This book takes philosophical contemplations on value to a new level, while also explicating some contemporary Chinese styles of philosophical thought. Over the past 25 years, this book has been having an increasing impact on Chinese readers and researchers, and it also provides a good platform for international dialogue on several key issues of philosophical studies.

Book Short Summary:

In this evocative and heart-wrenching memoir, a hard-working Welsh molecatcher reveals his double life as a poet and a dreamer • “A wonderful memoir … hands down the most charming book I read last year.”—Margaret Renkl, The New York Times “How to Catch a Mole is a small book of many things. In quiet, crystalline prose, it blends memoir, keen observations of nature, and ruminations about life, aging and death.”—Wall Street Journal Kneeling in a muddy field in the Welsh countryside, clutching a creature that is soft and blue-black, Marc Hamer vows he will stop trapping moles—forever. In this earnest, understated, and sublime work of literary memoir, the molecatcher shares what led him to this strange career and what caused him to stop: from sleeping among hedges as a homeless teen, to toiling on the railway, to weeding windswept gardens in Wales and witnessing the beauty of every living thing. Hamer infuses his wanderings with radiant poetry and stark, simple observations on nature’s oft-ignored details. He also reveals how to catch a mole—a craft long kept secret by its masters—and burrows into the unusual lives of his muses. Moles, we learn, are colorblind. Their blood holds unusual amounts of carbon dioxide. Their vast tunnel networks are intricate and deceptive. And, like Hamer, they work alone. Beautifully written, life-affirming, and highly original, How to Catch a Mole offers a gorgeous portrait of one man's deep, unbreakable bond with his natural surroundings, and offers hope and inspiration for anyone looking to improve their relationship with the natural world.

Book Short Summary:

A pioneer in the strange art and ambiguous science of zo phagy-that is, of studying animals by eating them-British natural historian FRANCIS TREVELYAN BUCKLAND (1826-1880) was a wildly popular speaker and writer of the Victorian era. In his classic four-volume Curiosities of Natural History, published between 1857 and 1872, he shared his love of creatures exotic and mysterious with readers who devoured his charming and erudite essays much in the same way he devoured his animal subjects. "If there is one person that I would have expected to have captured a sea serpent in the 19th century for the sole purpose of eating it, it would be Frank Buckland," writes cryptozoologist Loren Coleman in his new introduction to Buckland's series. One of the founding grandfathers of cryptozoology, the discipline that investigates animal mysteries, Buckland was not "a wild-eyed 'true believer' in anything strange," insists Coleman, but brought, instead, "a skeptical, open-minded approach" to his work. Indeed, here, in the "second series" of Curiosities of Natural History, Buckland's erudition is clear in his animated discussions of, among many other things, a dish of fossil fish, a gamekeeper's museum, the gypsy mode of cooking hedgehogs, and practical uses for whale bones. This new edition, a replica of the original 1871 seventh edition, is part of Cosimo's Loren Coleman Presents series. LOREN COLEMAN is author of numerous books of cryptozoology, including Bigfoot!: The True Story of Apes in America and Mothman and Other Curious Encounters.
