About the Book Amusing, entertaining, thought provoking, and often touching stories of one family's rather unusual life that pushes the belief that there really are miracles that form our lives, and that things do happen for a reason. Miracles and how they form our lives. That is what is questioned, and what is ultimately presented to you to answer for yourself. The evidence for this argument is the foundation for this family of 15. From the roots of being "childhood sweethearts", to a family tree that includes three biological and ten adopted children (all of various ethnic backgrounds), you follow the unmistakable trails of what can only be described as miracles. Life is not always easy, as struggles and disappointments are often faced, but they are done so with a gathered knowledge that miracles happen everyday, and are more often than not, done so without fanfare or announcement. The author really tells many stories within a story, making you wonder if we are really are alone. The book is written in a comfortable "bluejeans" point of view, and can be read from many different perspectives. All the stories are ultimately threaded together with the belief that everything happens for a reason.

When the 2012 Summer Olympics opened in London, security was at a fever pitch. They said it was going to be the safest Olympic Games yet. They were wrong. Heightened security did not stop a terrorist attack on the final group stage match of the Olympic soccer tournament between the United States and the host Great Britain, played at the fabled Wembley Stadium, the home of British football. And when an agent of al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack, it sent both the United States and the United Kingdom into a heightened state of alert. There is only one problem for the terrorist: Outbound Eurostar service to Paris and flights out of Heathrow have been shut down – but flights into London continue to come in. At the request of the President of the United States, the CIA calls upon the one agent – Jaclyn Johnson, a.k.a. Snapshot – he can trust to seek out the killers of many American citizens and bring them to justice. But what occurs in London during Snapshot’s mission leads to political maneuvering – and Jaclyn going against everything she knows.
In the past 15 years a host of critical thinking books have appeared that teach students to find flaws in the arguments of others by learning to detect a number of informal fallacies. This book is not in that tradition. The authors of this book believe that while students learn to become vicious critics, they still continue to make the very mistakes they criticize in others. Thus, this book has adopted the approach of teaching the construction of good arguments first and then introducing criticism as a secondary skill. Moreover, the emphasis of the book is not on learning to name fallacies, but on being able to identify weaknesses in an argument so as to be able to construct an effective critique of that argument. The book is accompanied by a workbook featuring a wealth of examples to help students acquire the material.
Four mind-bending novels from science fiction's most transformative decade in a deluxe collector's edition hardcover, including two long out-of-print classics In this second volume of a two-volume set gathering the best American science fiction from the tumultuous 1960s, R. A. Lafferty's quirky and utterly original Past Master, an unjustly neglected classic, imagines Sir Thomas More transported to the colony Astrobe in the year 2535, where he is made president of a future Utopia. In Picnic on Paradise, Joanna Russ presents her indelible heroine, Alyx, who is hired to protect a group of tourists in a hostile alien world. Samuel R. Delany's proto-cyberpunk space opera Nova, reprinted here for the first time in a text corrected by the author, combines the pacing of a revenge story with the arc of a grail-quest legend. Jack Vance's dystopian thriller Emphyrio is the coming-of-age story of Ghyl, who has been raised in a world barring the use of automation but has a strong sense of subversive individualism. The novel has been restored to the author's original text, without later editorial interventions.
