To save its life, she must reunite mother and calf in the vastness of the Pacific Ocean.Miracles happen now and then.

    Part Three: The Wilderness Campaign; Surrender at Appomattox Grant's assessments of Lincoln, Sherman, Sheridan and other military leaders are brilliant and engrossing. His style, like the man himself, was inimitable and couldn't be copied. In everyday life, Grant was a very funny man, who liked to listen to jokes and tell them himself. His sense of the absurd was acute. It's no accident that he loved Mark Twain and the two hitched together very well. Twain and Grant shared a similar sense of humor, and Grant's witicisms in the Memoirs are frequent, unexpected and welcome. There are portions where you will literally laugh out loud. Though Grant's Memoirs were written 119 years ago, they remain fresh, vibrant and an intensely good read. I have read them many times in my life and I never weary of the style and language that Grant employed. He was a military genius to be sure, but he was also a writer of supreme gifts, and these gifts shine through on every page of this testament to his greatness. All Americans should read this book and realize what we owe to Grant: he preserved the union with his decisive brilliance. In his honor, we should be eternally grateful.

    Two leading scientists from the Vatican Observatory explore profound questions of faith and science through the lives of contributions of great Catholic scientists.Tracing back across 1,000 years of history, you’ll reflect on the role of faith in science with Dr. Guy Consolmagno, SJ, nicknamed the “Pope’s Astronomer,” and his friend and colleague Dr. Michelle Francl-Donnay, an award-winning professor of chemistry at Bryn Mawr College.Beginning with a brief overview of the history of science, Consolmagno and Francl-Donnay highlight Catholic contributions to medicine, mathematics, computer science, astronomy, and chemistry before arriving at the question of our place in the cosmos.While some of the figures they discuss, like Gregor Mendel, are famous for their discoveries, Consolmagno and Francl-Donnay introduce you to a host of fascinating Christians whose work you may be less familiar with: St. Hildegard of Bingen, a beloved mystic and visionary who is also considered a pioneer in natural history; Albert the Great, a Doctor of the Church and patron saint of scientists; a pair of popes who trained as scientists before their election as Bishop of Rome; and Mary Poonen Lukose, the first woman Surgeon General of India in 1938.The conversational format of Great Catholic Scientists offers you a wealth of insight without the stuffiness of a traditional lecture. Muse on the interplay of faith and discovery with this pair of accomplished scientists and teachers.This course is part of the Learn25 Collection.

    This is the remarkable story of a local lad who grew up in the shadow of Upton Park and became ‘Mr West Ham’: a one-club man who lived the dream. 
    A modern footballing legend, Mark Noble is the embodiment of what it means to be a Hammer, pouring his heart and soul into the club he supported as a boy. Born and raised in Canning Town, Mark joined the West Ham youth squad in 2000 and made his senior-team debut aged just 17. 
    Now, after over 20 years, with a wealth of memories and more than 500 appearances for his boyhood club under his belt, Mark finally looks back at his remarkable career, reflecting on his journey from boot boy to club captain, bossing the midfield, scoring pressure penalties and becoming an inspirational figurehead on and off the pitch. 
    This is the story of a brilliant footballer, a genuine ambassador and a local legend. This is the unforgettable autobiography of Mark Noble. 
    Mark Noble's personal memoir, a Sunday Times bestseller, is a captivating recreation of his journey from a local lad to a soccer legend. His latest story is not just about his sports career, but also about his coaching experiences and his last years in the sport.

    Frederick Moore spent his 1950s Minneapolis childhood obsessively teaching himself guitar and writing songs. In the 1960s his bands Skogie and the Flaming Pachucos reached local stardom. After, they put everything they had into their cars and caravanned to Los Angeles. From a garage in suburban Arleta, they evolved Skogie into a new band called The Kats. In the 1980s, The Kats sold out every major club in Los Angeles.The Kats were offered dozens of record contracts while headlining alongside The Police, The Knack, Flash Cadillac and the Continental Kids, and The Motels. They turned down every single one. The 1990s and early 2000s led Moore to the computer-programming world. Coding and music seemed to go hand in hand for him, and he found himself rising through the programming ranks quickly until developing early-onset Alzheimer's.It's Not a Rumour is an unorthodox, hysterical story of survival, and of making it big in music and life without ever making a dime. It's also about getting diagnosed with one of the most frightening diseases known to man, treating memory loss through writing, music, diet, exercise, and natural supplements, and Moore's wife, Renee, who, through her tireless love and research, helped him hold on to these memories as long as he could to share them with the world.
