Summary

This Madison & Adams edition presents the true story of the infamous trial and all those included, together with the actual transcript of the testimonies, closing arguments and the verdict. 
The trial of political activists accused of inciting riots during the Democratic National Convention of 1968 attracted national attention and exposed the depths of political and cultural divisions at a crucial moment in the nation's history. The trial of the "Chicago Seven" became a defining event in public debates about the Vietnam War, the student protest movement, and the fairness of the federal judicial process.
The defendants and their lawyers used the courtroom as a platform for a broad critique of American society and an almost anarchic challenge to the legitimacy of governmental authority. The judge in the case displayed open contempt for the defendants, and his own unorthodox behavior threatened public confidence in the judiciary. The nearly five-month long trial illustrated the contentious and often theatrical nature of public affairs during the late 1960s and early 1970s.

    Fight COVID-19 with Melatonin

    The first reaction to covid-19 was to stay at home to avoid rapid spread. Now people are venturing out and are looking for ways to reduce the risk. Wearing masks, social distancing, washing hands, all help. 
    This book offers another way: Maximizing natural melatonin and taking melatonin by mouth. We examine the evidence that melatonin may increase immunity to the virus as it does in young children who make large amounts of natural melatonin. It may also reduce the severity of the infection. 
    Exposing the eyes to light in the hours before bedtime stops the body from making melatonin. Wearing orange glasses allows production of melatonin. Go to our for glasses. Wearing the glasses for 3 - 4 hours before a 7 to 8 hour sleep in darkness will maximize natural melatonin. 
    Taking a 2 - 5mg melatonin tablet when you put on the glasses will avoid disturbing your circadian rhythm. Natural melatonin is injected directly into the brain where it can protect the brain from the virus. Melatonin has been shown to be very safe, even in very larger doses. 
    Dr. Hansler, the author, did research for GE Lighting for 43 years before retiring to John Carroll University where he studied the effect of light on sleep and health. He has written 9 other books about this.

    Discover the origins, lore and meanings of botanical names with this lexicon of “pithy explanations of words that confront every plant tag reader” (The New York Times Book Review). 
     
    For more than a decade, gardeners have been turning to Bill Neal’s beautiful little book Gardener's Latin. Neal understood that as Latin terms began appearing with increasing frequency on nursery tags and gardening catalogs, gardeners would need help. So he weeded through the Latin words that describe and distinguish among plants and flowers and compiled a volume of select, brief, clear definitions. 
     
    Learning to navigate the jungles of botanical Latin will not only make you an expert in identification, but also teach you a great deal about the plants themselves. Gardener's Latin leads you down the path from abbreviatus to zonatus, turning aside here and there to point out little-known horticultural facts and fables and the wisdom of gardeners from Virgil to Vita Sackville-West.
