Summary

Little six year old Billy Smith had become depressed and sad when he had to move from his old neighborhood to another side of town. To make him happy his mother had offered to buy him a Halloween costume at Boyagian's pet and toyshop.
But Billy didn't want a Halloween costume. Instead, he bought a little, green turtle for a pet and called him Ned October. They soon became best of friends until Ned was accidently flushed down the toilet to the sewers below.
Once Ned October was discovered missing, Billy began his quest to find his lost little friend, while Ned began a long journey trying to find his way back home. However, both Billy and Ned were unaware that two Russian spies were also looking for Billy's pet turtle.
Just before Billy had purchased his turtle, and just before the two Russian spies had been arrested in Mr. Boyagian's pet and toy shop, the two spies had injected a turtle with a computer micro chip that contained the United States nuclear, biological and chemical technology for their missile and weapon programs.
Because of a lack of evidence the government agents had to free the two Russian spies and allow them to flee without any interference from the U.S. federal government. Now the two spies were able to search for their precious cargo, which started them on their journey and the hunt for Ned October.
While Ned confronted and overcame many obstacles during his long journey to find his home and best friend, Billy Smith, Billy also went through many trials and tribulations in his hunt for his pet turtle, Ned October. All the while the two Russian spies were following Billy hoping that he would lead them to the turtle that carried their precious micro chip inside its body.
But does Ned make it home before winter takes its toll on him-and does Billy find Ned before it's too late-or does the two Russian spies get to Ned before Billy? You will have to read on to find out what happens in: The Hunt for Ned October.

    Policing Methamphetamine -...

    In its steady march across the United States, methamphetamine has become, to quote former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, “the most dangerous drug in America.” As a result, there has been a concerted effort at the local level to root out the methamphetamine problem by identifying the people at its source—those known or suspected to be involved with methamphetamine. Government-sponsored anti-methamphetamine legislation has enhanced these local efforts, formally and informally encouraging rural residents to identify meth offenders in their communities. Policing Methamphetamine shows what happens in everyday life—and to everyday life—when methamphetamine becomes an object of collective concern. Drawing on interviews with users, police officers, judges, and parents and friends of addicts in one West Virginia town, William Garriott finds that this overriding effort to confront the problem changed the character of the community as well as the role of law in creating and maintaining social order. Ultimately, this work addresses the impact of methamphetamine and, more generally, the war on drugs, on everyday life in the United States.

    "Persuasively argues that our fixation with writing by hand is driven more by emotion than evidence, as it is perceived to be inextricably linked to our history, core values and individual identities."--Los Angeles Times 
     
    The future of handwriting is anything but certain. Its history, however, shows how much it has affected culture and civilization for millennia. 
     
    In the digital age of instant communication, handwriting is less necessary than ever before, and indeed fewer and fewer schoolchildren are being taught how to write in cursive. Signatures--far from John Hancock's elegant model--have become scrawls. In her recent and widely discussed and debated essays, Anne Trubek argues that the decline and even elimination of handwriting from daily life does not signal a decline in civilization, but rather the next stage in the evolution of communication. 
     
    Now, in The History and Uncertain Future of Handwriting, Trubek uncovers the long and significant impact handwriting has had on culture and humanity--from the first recorded handwriting on the clay tablets of the Sumerians some four thousand years ago and the invention of the alphabet as we know it, to the rising value of handwritten manuscripts today. Each innovation over the millennia has threatened existing standards and entrenched interests: Indeed, in ancient Athens, Socrates and his followers decried the very use of handwriting, claiming memory would be destroyed; while Gutenberg's printing press ultimately overturned the livelihood of the monks who created books in the pre-printing era. And yet new methods of writing and communication have always appeared. Establishing a novel link between our deep past and emerging future, Anne Trubek offers a colorful lens through which to view our shared social experience.

    Spetsnaz - Russia’s Special Forces

    When the shadowy, notorious Spetsnaz were first formed, they drew on a long Soviet tradition of elite, behind-the-lines commando forces from World War II and even earlier. Throughout the 1960s–70s they were instrumental both in projecting Soviet power in the Third World and in suppressing resistance within the Warsaw pact. As a powerful, but mysterious tool of a world superpower, the Spetsnaz have inevitably become the focus of many 'tall tales' in the West. In this book, a peerless authority on Russia's military Special Forces debunks several of these myths, uncovering truths that are often even more remarkable. Now, since the chaotic dissolution of the USSR and the two Chechen Wars, Russian forces have seen increasing modernization, involving them ever more in power-projection, counter-insurgency and anti-terrorism and the Spetsnaz have been deployed as a spearhead in virtually all of these operations. This book offers a unique, absorbing guide to the secrets of the Spetsnaz, their most noteworthy missions and personalities, but is also packed with details such as orders-of-battle, equipment and operational doctrine.

    The Book of Lies is a complex work of occultism. Deciphering its many layers of hidden meaning requires a little patience and more than a beginner's knowledge of Thelema. For those interested in passing beyond the initiate stage, the reward offered by a deeper understanding of this challenging text is well worth the effort.
