The Source of the Coulomb Force
Author: John Ross
Mr. Ross has identified for the first time the single particle and its anti-particle that everything in our Universe is made of. It is a point particle with no mass and no volume, but it has a charge of plus e or minus e which means these particles carry the Coulomb force. Mr. Ross has named these particles "TRONNIES." Tronnies are self-propelled by their own Coulomb forces at speeds of (pi)/2 times the speed of light and they always travel in perfect circles in threesomes and twosomes. The threesomes are electrons and positrons and the twosomes are entrons (also first identified by Mr. Ross). Mr. Ross shows for the first time the internal structure of electrons and positrons, and their sizes to be about 2 X 10-18 m. The sizes of entrons range from about 1 X 10-18 m to about 10 cm (about 100 million-billion times larger). One entron provides the energy and mass for each photon. The same entron that provides the gravity of galaxies provides almost all of the mass of each proton. Three entrons combine to make an electron and a positron. So electrons, positrons and entrons are made from tronnies. Everything else is made from entrons or entrons, electrons and positrons. By "everything" we mean everything: photons, protons, atoms, molecules, plants, animals, people, moons, planets, stars, galaxies, electricity, magnetism, gravity and anti-gravity. Mr. Ross reveals to the general public for the first time how to build universes from these points of charge and how universes are created and recycled.

A college student’s disappearance threatens to upend the race for governor Tisquanto is a quiet college town, and its chief of police wants to keep it that way. For years, the only trouble the students gave the locals was the occasional fraternity party that got out of hand. But now there are kids on campus calling for revolution. When the governor’s right-hand man, Mike McCall, comes to Tisquanto, the chief of police promises he’ll keep the students in-line, no matter how many bones he has to break. But McCall isn’t here about student unrest. He’s come to save a life. The daughter of the governor’s greatest political rival has disappeared from the school, and if McCall can’t find her, the whole future of the state is in doubt. But to track her down, he’ll have to wade into a campus that’s about to turn into a war zone.

An author having a conversation with his fictional character, or losing control of his character, mind numbing points leading one twists and turns spinning the mind of the reader with hallucinogenic colors, concepts, and eurekas. The short stories begin simplified, and walks together with the author as he takes a personal journey deep within the universe of his own consciousness, dwelling, prodding, dissecting, and creating... This book is a play on different writing styles uniquely conjured by the writer from random inspiration and experimentation with poetry as prior experience. This is a chronological anthology spanning the imagination and sanity of the writer. This book is a collection of humour, satire, and philosophy, with the most unique writing style and twists. This book evolves as one reads, from basic and simple stories of humor, to deeper and more profound satire best savored twice.

The study of international relations now goes well beyond state-to-state politics and even regional politics. Technological forces are working their effects on the world as a whole, bringing state and non-state actors into contact with one another. Globalization, Institutions and Governance provides students with a sophisticated and engaging exploration of the often differing impacts of these technological forces and the wider implications of globalization for theories of global governance and the role of international institutions. This title is part of the SAGE Series on the Foundations of International Relations. This series fills the gap between narrowly-focused research monographs and broad introductory texts, providing graduate students with state-of-the-art, critical overviews of the key sub-fields within International Relations: International Political Economy, International Security, Foreign Policy Analysis, International Organization, Normative IR Theory, International Environmental Politics, Globalization, and IR Theory. Explicitly designed to further the transatlantic dialogue fostered by publications such as the SAGE Handbook of International Relations, the series is written by renowned scholars drawn from North America, continental Europe and the UK. The books are intended as core texts on advanced courses in IR, taking students beyond the basics and into the heart of the debates within each field, encouraging an independent, critical approach and signposting further avenues of research.

Challenges and Opportunities

This book offers an assessment of the performance, impact, and welfare implications of the world’s largest employment guarantee programme, the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA). Launched by the Indian government, the programme covers entire rural area of the country. The book presents various micro-level analyses of the programme and its heterogeneous impacts at different scales, almost a decade after its implementation. While there are some doubts over the future of the scheme as well as its magnitude, nature and content, the central government appears committed to it, as a ‘convergence scheme’ of various other welfare and rural development programmes being implemented at both national and state level. The book discusses the outcomes of the programme and offers critical insights into the lessons learnt, not only in the context of India, but also for similar schemes in countries in South and South-East Asia as well as in Africa, and Latin America. Adopting inter-disciplinary perspectives in analysing these issues, this unique book uses a judicious mix of methods---integrating quantitative and qualitative tools---and will be an invaluable resource for analysts, NGOs, policymakers and academics alike.

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
From the Preface: "My name is Flora Jessop. I've been called apostate, vigilante, and crazy bitch, and maybe I am. But some people call me a hero, and I'd like to think they're right too. If I am a hero, maybe it's because every time I can play a part in saving a child or a woman from a life of servitude and degradation, I'm saving a little piece of me, too. I was one of twenty-eight children born to my dad and his three wives. Indoctrinated to believe that the outside world was evil, and that I resided among the righteous, I was destined to marry a man chosen for me by the Prophet. I would then live in harmony with my sister-wives, bear many children, and obey and serve my future husband in this life and throughout eternity. But my innocence didn't last long. While still a child, I understood that the church of the righteous was nothing but a church of lies. When I was eight years old my father sexually molested me for the first time, raping me when I was twelve. I tried to kill myself. Beaten, molested, taunted, and abused by family members alleging they only wanted to save my soul became a daily routine, I ran from this abuse more than once in my early teens--even attempting to cross the desert on foot. My family hunted me down. I thought government agencies would provide me safety if I reported my father. Instead, police and social services colluded with the FLDS to return me to my family and I ended up back inside polygamy, right where I started." Flora goes on from there to tell the dramatic true story of how she ultimately escaped and has been fighting against frustrating obstacles with hard fought successes in rescuing women and children from the FLDS. It's a story you can't put down.

This work explores and explicates learner motivation in online learning environments. More specifically, it uses a case-study approach to examine undergraduate students’ motivation within two formal and separate online learning contexts. In doing so, it recognizes the mutually constitutive relationship of the learner and the learning environment in relation to motivation. This is distinctive from other approaches that tend to focus on designing and creating motivating environments or, alternatively, concentrate on motivation as a stable learner characteristic. In particular, this book identifies a range of factors that can support or undermine learner motivation and discusses each in detail. By unraveling the complexity of learner motivation in such environments, it provides useful guidelines for teachers, instructional designers and academic advisors tasked with building and teaching within online educational contexts.

Cultural Politics in Italy, 1943-46 : Benedetto Croce and the Liberals, Carlo Levi and the "actionists"
Author: David Ward
Publisher: Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press
"This book is an in-depth analysis of three of the most crucial years in twentieth-century Italian history, the years 1943-46. After more than two decades of a Fascist regime and a disastrous war experience during which Italy changed sides, these years saw the laying of the political and cultural foundations for what has since become known as Italy's First Republic. Drawing on texts from the literature, film, journalism, and political debate of the period, Antifascisms offers a thorough survey of the personalities and positions that informed the decisions taken in this crucial phase of modern Italian history."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
