The Triumphant Orffyrean Perpetual Motion Finally Explained! by Book Resume:

In June of 1712, a previously obscure German-Polish inventor named Johann Ernst Elias Bessler first came to prominence in the town of Gera, Saxony, by publicly exhibiting a remarkable invention. It was a self-moving perpetual motion wheel whose secret mechanics had taken him a decade of sacrifice, toil, and the construction of about a hundred handmade models to finally obtain. In the years following, he continued to improve his successful invention and eventually constructed and demonstrated a twelve-foot-diameter wheel at a count’s castle in the town of Kassel, Saxony. By then, his marvelous wheels were the talk of European high society and had been witnessed by thousands of people. His dream was to sell one of his amazing machines and then use the money to found a religious university dedicated to teaching the many technical crafts he had learned during his life and travels. Bessler, however, fearing an unscrupulous buyer might try to learn the secret of his wheels before complete payment was made, demanded a single upfront sum that at the time was equal to the value of a ton of gold! It was an amount of money that only the richest could afford to pay, yet none seemed willing to do so unless he could know the secret of Bessler’s wheels before the sale was made in order to satisfy himself that he was not paying a king’s ransom for a worthless fake. As a consequence of this stalemate, the invention was never sold, and in November of 1745, Bessler, then sixty-five years of age, was killed in a tragic construction accident. He took the secret of his wheels to his grave, and it has remained there for the last three centuries despite the efforts of thousands of perpetual motion seekers to rediscover it. Now, however, with the publication of The Triumphant Orffyrean Perpetual Motion Finally Explained! this situation has changed. After discovering an unsuspected source of hidden instructions Bessler left to guide future reverse engineers of his wheels and then using them to construct and test over two thousand computer models, author and researcher Kenneth W. Behrendt can finally reveal the long-sought secret of Bessler’s wheels and do so with enough detail to allow them to be duplicated today! This groundbreaking treatment of the subject should be of great interest to anybody wondering about the possibility of self-motive machinery in general or seeking to explore the topic of Bessler’s wheels at a far deeper level than was previously possible.

Diaglogue Against Nature: Quantum Gravity Game Theory by Omar Sedraoui Book Resume:

The aim of this book is to teach new skills on how to construct using imagination as a useful tool to express thoughts directly related to space. It is the idea of making solid shapes that we have not heard of before that can be altered and used to get something else new. In this book you will learn how geometry can be utilized as a process of live action by hand, to resolve any problems that deal with engineering or material construction of things needed on demand. The idea is to save time, money, and space by constructing objects that are in high demand in an efficient manner through models. This book explains a process to explore symmetry in all of its aspects of application.

The Other Side of Psalm 23 by Alan Schmitt Book Resume:

Psalm 23 is by far the most recognized bereavement passage of scripture in the Bible to both believers and nonbelievers alike. I will be the first to acknowledge its time-tested ability to soften the sting of death and provide comforting words of hope and assurance. I have witnessed firsthand how it can soothe the pain of loss and loneliness when someone we love has been taken away from us. The bereavement side of Psalm 23 is important and necessary as long as we realize that there is another side of Psalm 23. The Other Side of Psalm 23 was first presented in a series of sermons. In 2018, my doctoral dissertation was based on those sermons. Today they are presented in this book for your review and consideration.

The Other Side of Suffering by Katie E. Cherry Book Resume:

In this work, the author addresses a perennial question: how does someone recover from a catastrophic disaster or other personal tragedy? The answer, she suggests, may come from coastal residents who survived the 2005 Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. These survivors endured a long and painful journey after losing homes and communities in these deadly storms, and their experiences provide an authentic and relatable example for other people who must overcome a life changing tragedy. The Other Side of Suffering is based on behavioral research conducted by the author in the years after the hurricanes. In her research, Katie Cherry logged thousands of miles crisscrossing the Louisiana coastline and spoke with over 190 current and former coastal residents with catastrophic losses after Katrina. The author begins with an overview of the human impact of these disasters, and then focuses on the community impact on two coastal parishes in southern Louisiana. The incorporation of the personal journal entries of a Katrina survivor provides an intimate glimpse into the long days and months that over a million displaced Gulf Coast residences experienced. From this research, the author identifies six evidence-based principles of healing: faith and humor, respect and gratitude, and acceptance and silver linings. Colorful illustrations and direct quotes from the respondents bring these principles to life. Along with a path to healing, the book also discusses grief and the new normal after a disaster, as well as obstacles that may thwart the healing process. Ultimately, the work emphasizes the importance of recovering daily routines and observances as life goes on after disaster.

Flashbacks: From the Other Side of the Tracks by Gino Carlotti Book Resume:

This book is a collection of personal accounts of growing up in an Italian-American home in an inter-city neighborhood of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. Accompanying the text are 52 pictures of an historical era many Americans hold close to their hearts and consider the most precious of their lives. The book fondly enlivens themes of America's melting pot. The author, a gifted storyteller, writes about topics that range from his parents' roots in Italy to life in Catholic schools' from how teanagers dressed when he was a boy to how U.S. military personnel are honored in American cemeteries throughout the world. The love of family, regard for old friends and classmates, and the importance of "toots" are threads that are woven throughout the book.

What Is Relativity? by Jeffrey Bennett Book Resume:

A renowned astrophysicist’s approachable introduction to Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity and its application in our daily lives. It is commonly assumed that if the Sun suddenly turned into a black hole, it would suck Earth and the rest of the planets into oblivion. Yet, as prominent author and astrophysicist Jeffrey Bennett points out, black holes don't suck. With that simple idea in mind, Bennett begins an entertaining introduction to Einstein's theories of relativity, describing the amazing phenomena readers would actually experience if they took a trip to a black hole. The theory of relativity reveals the speed of light as the cosmic speed limit, the mind-bending ideas of time dilation and curvature of spacetime, and what may be the most famous equation in history: E = mc2. Indeed, the theory of relativity shapes much of our modern understanding of the universe. It is not “just a theory”―every major prediction of relativity has been tested to exquisite precision, and its practical applications include the Global Positioning System (GPS). Amply illustrated and written in clear, accessible prose, Bennett's book proves anyone can grasp the basics of Einstein's ideas. His intuitive, nonmathematical approach gives a wide audience its first real taste of how relativity works and why it is so important to science and the way we view ourselves as human beings. “Well-written and uniquely readable . . . Bennett carefully avoids bombastic statements and “spectacularization” of the subject.” —Alberto Nicolis, Columbia University “I have read lots of introductions to relativity, but none is as clear and compelling as this one.” —Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer, SETI Institute

The Other Side of Nothing by Brad Warner Book Resume:

A reader-friendly guide to Zen Buddhist ethics for modern times In the West, Zen Buddhism has a reputation for paradoxes that defy logic. In particular, the Buddhist concept of nonduality — the realization that everything in the universe forms a single, integrated whole — is especially difficult to grasp. In The Other Side of Nothing, Zen teacher Brad Warner untangles the mystery and explains nonduality in plain English. To Warner, this is not just a philosophical problem: nonduality forms the bedrock of Zen ethics, and once we comprehend it, many of the perplexing aspects of Zen suddenly make sense. Drawing on decades of Zen practice, he traces the interlocking relationship between Zen metaphysics and ethics, showing how a true understanding of reality — and the ultimate unity of all things — instills in us a sense of responsibility for the welfare of all beings. When we realize that our feeling of separateness from others is illusory, we have no desire to harm any creature. Warner ultimately presents an expansive overview of the Zen ethos that will give beginners and experts alike a deeper understanding of one of the world’s enduring spiritual traditions.

War is uncomfortable for Christians, and worldwide war is unfamiliar for today’s generations. Jim Downing reflects on his illustrious military career, including his experience during the bombing of Pearl Harbor, to show how we can be people of faith during troubled times. The natural human impulse is to run from attack. Jim Downing—along with countless other soldiers and sailors at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941—ran toward it, fighting to rescue his fellow navy men, to protect loved ones and civilians on the island, and to find the redemptive path forward from a devastating war. We are protected from war these days, but there was a time when war was very present in our lives, and in The Other Side of Infamy we learn from a veteran of Pearl Harbor and World War II what it means to follow Jesus into and through every danger, toil, and snare.

For fans of Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst In a world inspired by 16th century Italy, magic is a common occurrence. Everyone in the realms of Epidalio and Zafiria is gifted with it at birth, but with every spell cast, their power wanes. Gaiane Asares is the result of an accurate selection by her mother, the queen of Zafiria. She’s infinitely powerful; a weapon of mass destruction kept segregated in a tower and used against her will to conquer Epidalio. Meanwhile, in Epidalio, Leo was born with no magic at all, a rarity. She lost her home and family when Zafiria attacked, and her resentment toward the invaders still burns. Gaiane manages to escape her gilded cage, and the two girls cross paths. But when war threatens the land again, their loyalty will be put to the test. Will they manage to overcome their differences in the name of freedom?

The Other Side of Israel by Susan Nathan Book Resume:

In 2003, Susan Nathan moved from her comfortable home in Tel Aviv to Tamra, an Arab town in the northern part of Israel. Nathan had arrived in Israel four years earlier and had taught English and worked with various progressive social organizations. Her desire to help build a just and humane society in Israel took an unexpected turn, however, when she became aware of Israel’s neglected and often oppressed indigenous Arab population. Despite warnings from friends about the dangers she would encounter, Nathan settled in an apartment in Tamra, the only Jew among 25,000 Muslims. There she discovered a division between Israeli Jews and Israeli Arabs as tangible as the concrete wall and razor-wire fences that surround the Palestinian towns of the West Bank and Gaza. From her unique vantage point, Nathan examines the history and the present-day political and cultural currents that have created a situation little recognized in the ongoing debates about the future of Israel and the Middle East. With warmth, humor, and compassion, she portrays the daily life of her neighbors, the challenges they encounter, and the hopes they harbor. She introduces Arab leaders fighting against entrenched segregation and discrimination; uncovers the hidden biases that undermine even the most well-intentioned Arab-Jewish peace organizations; and describes the efforts of dedicated individuals who insist that Israeli Arabs must be granted the same rights and privileges as Jewish citizens. Through her own courageous example, Nathan proves that it is possible for Jews and Arabs to live and work peacefully together. The Other Side of Israel is more than the story of one woman’s journey; it is a road map for crossing a divide created by prejudices and misunderstandings.

Strategies For Health by Steven Horne, RH (AHG) Book Resume:

If you're looking to solve your own health problems, help someone you love, or you're searching for answers to assist customers or clients, this practical guide to natural remedies will help you succeed. This book is the result of the healing journey I started fifty years ago when I failed to find answers to my own chronic respiratory problems. After years of getting worse with allopathic treatments, I discovered a different approach. I started studying and applying the use of herbs, diet, and other natural modalities. I went from being a sickly teenager, to a healthy young adult. For the past forty years I have been consulting, writing, and teaching, sharing what I have learned to help other people experience the same health transformation. I wrote Strategies for Health to share this knowledge so that anyone who is struggling with poor health can move beyond symptomatic relief and start learning how to achieve lasting health. To get better results this book teaches you to find and adopt strategies to correct the underlying root causes of disease, such as nutritional deficiencies, exposure to toxins, unresolved stress, and poor lifestyle habits. Because when you look beyond treating disease symptoms and correct these root causes the body returns to its natural state--health. This is the approach that I have taken to successfully care for myself and my family. It has also helped me transform the lives of my clients and teach hundreds of successful natural health consultants to do the same. And I hope the information in this book will help bring the same health and wellbeing to you and many others. -Steven Horne, RH(AHG), DHS, DHM

The human mind today is undergoing the most exciting and intensive probing in the history of mankind. In this unusual and provocative book, W. Clement Stone, a hard-headed businessman, and Norma Lee Browning, a top reporter, combine forces to explore The Other Side of the Mind – the fascinating, often controversial world of mind phenomena. “Enough is known today about the capabilities of the brain to provide science with its greatest challenge,” writes Norma Lee Browning. “It is now evident that we are only scratching the surface of human potentialities. When the curtain of mystery is lifted from the last unexplored corner of the mind, there will be no limits to what the future may hold for shaping the destiny of mankind.” Keep an open mind as you read about: - • The strange psychic life of the Australian Aborigines. • The mystery of the fire-walkers of the Fiji Islands. • The yogis of India, who may hold the key which scientists everywhere are looking for to unlock the hidden reservoirs of human efficiency and energy. • The startling and significant research into mental telepathy that is being done by Soviet scientists of the highest caliber. • Extra-sensory perception and what the future holds for para-psychology. • The researches into hypnosis, cybernetics and ESB – electrical stimulation of the brain. • Lourdes, for whose cures medical science has no explanation. • The sensitives of mediums who claim to have special psychic powers and the honest appearing charlatans who prey upon the gullible. • How you can relate the facts in this book to your own life to develop and maintain your physical, mental, and moral well-being.

Space curves around you, time slows down, particles are waves, a cat is both alive and dead. What's going on? It all starts to make sense when we untangle the universe with this clear and enlightening book. Day-dreamers and deep-thinkers, these are the concepts that will send your mind wandering to new places with a deeper understanding of the natural world. Physics has always been a tricky subject for the general public. Millions are fascinated by the laws of the physical world, but there has been a lack of books written specifically for general readers. The Universe Untangled is for those who are curious; yet do not have an extensive mathematical background. It uses images, analogies and comprehensible language to cover popular topics of interest including the evolution of the universe, fundamental forces and particle interactions, the nature of space and time according to Special and General Relativity, the ideas of Quantum Mechanics and the quest for knowing the unknown. The Universe Untangled is a unique book because it is written by an author whose career has been built on making science accessible to all. She has contributed to the design and content production of educational games, professional development courses, and science workbooks. In essence, this is not a book written by a physicist for other physicists. It is written by an educator who cares only about sharing her passion for science with others.

The Other Side of Forever by Josette King,Elizabeth Cappelletti Lmft Book Resume:

Every French woman knows about 'le coup de foudre', the thunderbolt of love at first sight that changes your life forever. But romance is the last thing on the mind of Jacqueline Marechal when the young Parisian woman arrives in Cologne in 1963, during the days leading to Carnival. All she wants is relief from her rigid family environment, and to bide her time while she devises a plan to escape even farther, all the way to America. Until she meets Rainer Heinrich. A self-professed cynic, German student Rainer Heinrich doesn't believe in love. He is content to observe its ravages from afar and relish his own carefree life. Until he meets Jacqueline Marechal. With the fearless innocence of young love, they trust that the intensity of their feelings will overcome national borders and centuries-old prejudices. Yet the forever happiness they promise each other is not meant to be. The opposition of her parents soon forces them apart. But they never forget. When their paths cross again two decades later, they finally confront the youthful fantasies that shaped their lives. From historic Boston suburbs to glamorous European cities, they must face The Other Side of Forever.

The Ascent of Gravity by Marcus Chown Book Resume:

The Sunday Times Science Book of the Year 2017 'Does Einstein proud . . . Eminently readable' Guardian 'No one has covered the topic with such a light touch and joie de vivre . . . a delight' Brian Clegg Gravity was the first force to be recognised and described yet it is still the least understood. If we can unlock its secrets, the force that keeps our feet on the ground holds the key to understanding the biggest questions in science: what is space? What is time? What is the universe? And where did it all come from? Award-winning writer Marcus Chown takes us on an unforgettable journey from the recognition of the 'force' of gravity in 1666 to the discovery of gravitational waves in the twenty-first century. And, as we stand on the brink of a seismic revolution in our worldview, he brings us up to speed on the greatest challenge ever to confront physics.

100 Years of Gravity and Accelerated Frames by Jong-Ping Hsu,Dana Fine Book Resume:

This collection of papers presents ideas and problems arising over the past 100 years regarding classical and quantum gravity, gauge theories of gravity, and spacetime transformations of accelerated frames. Both Einstein's theory of gravity and the Yang-Mills theory are gauge invariant. The invariance principles in physics have transcended both kinetic and dynamic properties and are at the very heart of our understanding of the physical world. In this spirit, this book attempts to survey the development of various formulations for gravitational and Yang-Mills fields and spacetime transformations of accelerated frames, and to reveal their associated problems and limitations. The aim is to present some of the leading ideas and problems discussed by physicists and mathematicians. We highlight three aspects: formulations of gravity as a Yang-Mills field, first discussed by Utiyama; problems of gravitational theory, discussed by Feynman, Dyson and others; spacetime properties and the physics of fields and particles in accelerated frames of reference. These unfulfilled aspects of Einstein and Yang–Mills' profound thoughts present a great challenge to physicists and mathematicians in the 21st century.

The Origins of Statics by Pierre Duhem Book Resume:

If ever a major study of the history of science should have acted like a sudden revolution it is this book, published in two volumes in 1905 and 1906 under the title, Les origines de la statique. Paris, the place of publication, and the Librairie scientifique A. Hermann that brought it be enough of a guarantee to prevent a very different out, could seem to outcome. Without prompting anyone, for some years yet, to follow up the revolutionary vistas which it opened up, Les origines de la statique certainly revolutionized Duhem's remaining ten or so years. He became the single-handed discoverer of a vast new land of Western intellectual history. Half a century later it could still be stated about the suddenly proliferating studies in medieval science that they were so many commentariesonDuhem's countlessfindings and observations. Of course, in 1906, Paris and the intellectual world in general were mesmerized by Bergson's Evolution creatrice, freshly off the press. It was meant to bring about a revolution. Bergson challenged head-on the leading dogma of the times, the idea of mechanistic evolution. He did so by noting, among other things, that to speak of vitalism was at least a roundabout recognition of scientific ignorance about a large number of facts concerning life-processes. He held high the idea of a "vital impetus passing through matter," and indeed through all matter or the universe, an impetus thatcould be detected only through intuitiveknowledge.

Correspondence of John Wallis (1616-1703) by Philip Beeley,Christoph J. Scriba Book Resume:

Containing many previously unpublished letters, this third volume of a six volume collection of the complete correspondence of John Wallis (1616-1703), documents an important period in the history of the Royal Society and the University of Oxford. By providing access to these letters, this painstakingly crafted edition will enable readers to gain a deeper and richer awareness of the intellectual culture on which the growth of scientific knowledge in early modern Europe was based. Wallis was Savilian Professor of Geometry of Oxford from 1649 until his death, and was a founding member of the Royal Society and a central figure in the scientific and intellectual history of England. In the period covered Wallis is engaged in scientific debates on techniques for determining areas contained by curves (quadratures) and figures (cubatures), as well as on the theory of motion and the nature of the tides. He also continues to attack the mathematical undertakings of Thomas Hobbes and to respond to attacks which the philosopher in turn levels against him. We also find evidence for the consolidation of mathematics as an academic discipline in the University of Oxford just fifty years after the establishment of the first mathematical lecturerships. Wallis is called upon more than once to deliver ceremonial lectures on mathematical topics to foreign dignitaries visiting the University. At the same time the volume allows us to witness the beginnings of a remarkable development in mathematical publishing. Many of Wallis's letters to Henry Oldenburg, secretary of the Royal Society, on a variety of topics in the mathematical and physical sciences, are transformed into articles and published in Oldenburg's journal, the Philosophical Transactions. Part of the reason for this development also becomes clear in the letters: the long and costly process of publishing mathematical books such as Wallis's three part Mechanica: sive de motu. This volume not only signals the modernization of mathematics in the second half of the seventeenth century but we also see two new figures emerge for the first time, whose careers are in different ways closely associated with Wallis: Isaac Newton and Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz.

The Lost Star's Sea by C. Litka Book Resume:

Shipwrecked in the floating islands. Captain Wil Litang, of the space ship, Lost Star, finds himself shipwrecked on a tiny floating island in the vast atmospheric sea of the Archipelago of the Tenth Star. Making matters worse, he’s not alone. He shares the island with an assassin who has taken a vow to kill him, and a feathered dragon, with a whole lot of teeth. The Lost Star’s Sea is the sequel to The Bright Black Sea. The novel is set in the Archipelago of the Tenth Star, a vast hollow world filled with islands floating in a sea of air. Cut off from the Lost Star, Captain Wil Litang must not only survive the fierce beasts and dragons of the island, but their savage people as well – pirates, bandits, and the strange servants of the Dragon Kings. Not to mention the assassin, Naylea Cin, who has pursued him across the Nine Star Nebula to kill him. The story of Wil Litang and the Lost Star concludes in this classic planetary adventure novel written in the tradition of Edgar Rice Burroughs. C. Litka writes old-fashioned novels with modern sensibilities, humor, and romance. His lighthearted novels of adventure, mystery, and travel are set in richly imagined worlds and feature a colorful cast of well drawn characters. If you seek to escape, for a few hours, your everyday life, you will not find better company, nor more wonderful worlds to travel and explore, than in the novels of C. Litka.
