Summary

A philosophical approach to the enigma of nature and the universe approached through observation, meditation, and logical analysis of material phenomena.   Written in accessible language for the general reader, The Origin of the Universe expounds on a theory that Jan Aleksander Piasecki developed from a synthesis of data he accumulated over the years. He discusses world forces and how they combine and operate to create the universe and matter, and all living things in it. A special section discusses the soul, its design and destiny.   Attributing everything in the universe to the impact and expansion of the heat entity and the resistance and pressure of the cold entity, Piasecki moves through time and space to explain the creation of the sun, the solar system, atmosphere, water, and living forms. He draws a connection from outside forces to that which animates every “self-moving form” from within: the soul, imbued with the knowledge of its own being.   From molecules to the moon, The Origin of the Universe takes readers on a journey through the mysteries of life, those with a finite existence and those that may endure forever . . .

  • The Scientific Attitude - Defending Science from Denial Fraud and Pseudoscience - cover

    The Scientific Attitude -...

    Attacks on science have become commonplace. Claims that climate change isn't settled science, that evolution is “only a theory,” and that scientists are conspiring to keep the truth about vaccines from the public are staples of some politicians' rhetorical repertoire. Defenders of science often point to its discoveries (penicillin! relativity!) without explaining exactly why scientific claims are superior. In this book, Lee McIntyre argues that what distinguishes science from its rivals is what he calls "the scientific attitude"—caring about evidence and being willing to change theories on the basis of new evidence. The history of science is littered with theories that were scientific but turned out to be wrong; the scientific attitude reveals why even a failed theory can help us to understand what is special about science. 
    McIntyre offers examples that illustrate both scientific success and failure. He describes the transformation of medicine from a practice based largely on hunches into a science based on evidence; considers scientific fraud; examines the positions of ideology-driven denialists, pseudoscientists, and "skeptics" who reject scientific findings; and argues that social science, no less than natural science, should embrace the scientific attitude.

    The Bitcoin mania continues to sweep the world like never seen before. The soaring value of cryptocurrencies provides a massive incentive for individuals, dummies and businesses to join the party. Those who cashed in during the meteoric rise of digital currencies, like bitcoin, know just how much difference the right investment decisions can make.  
    However, it is never too late for anyone to make a killing with cryptocurrency, bitcoin inclusive. 
    There are many reasons why people are adopting digital currencies in droves besides the profit potential.  
    First, cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, are incredibly secure. Technology aficionados and enthusiasts worldwide would agree that the blockchain, the ledger which underpins cryptocurrencies is hugely secure, especially for digital currencies like bitcoin. The blockchain has been carefully built to make it hard for robbers to change or tamper with data.  
    Second, your transactions cannot be traced back to you unless you publicize your wallet address.  
    Third, there is no paperwork involved, unlike what is obtainable with traditional bank accounts. You can start trading cryptocurrencies without providing proof of address, ID card, or passport. However, the opposite may hold if you intend to trade large sums. But if you are trading small amounts, all you will be needing is your wallet and address.  
    Fourth, as cryptocurrencies are highly anonymous, you do not have to worry about identity theft when dealing in them. Besides, cryptocurrency transactions are completed within few minutes, unlike traditional debt settlement systems which always take time. 
    Now that you have an idea on how cryptocurrencies can benefit you, this eBook aims to provide even more information to help you grow digital currency literacy and critical thinking further.

Together, the cybercops lured numerous unsuspecting hackers into their clutches. Yet at every turn, their main quarry displayed an uncanny ability to sniff out their snitches and see through their plots.The culprit they sought was the most unlikely of criminals: a brilliant programmer with a hippie ethic and a supervillain's double identity.

    A portrait of midcentury London and its trams, trains, trolleybuses, ferries, and more, filled with color photos from 1948-1969.   The rich variety of transport in the London area is reflected in this color album from Martin Jenkins and Charles Roberts. Using mainly previously unpublished color views from the period 1948-1969, they have assembled a remarkable array of views covering all modes of transport. The reader is taken on a fascinating journey of discovery, not knowing what will be around the next corner—encountering buses, trams, and trolleybuses; main line steam, diesel and electric; London Transport electric and steam as well as little-known industrial railways; activities on the Thames, in docks, and on canals; liners, ferries, and pleasure steamers; plus aviation and even a coal merchant’s horse-drawn cart.   Captioned images in stunning color have been selected wherever possible to show changing streetscapes, buildings, and fashions, bringing the period to life. This book is a tribute to those photographers who had the foresight to record these scenes before they were swept away in the name of progress.

    "There's a guy. He was hit by a truck." 
    On a rainy November day, Mia Hayes's husband left for work on his Vespa. Normally, she would have driven him, but Mia was waiting on a phone call with an editor and didn't have time. 
    She never saw that caring, loving version of her husband again. 
    The fallout from his accident--Mia's guilt and her husband's PTSD, memory loss, and depression--consumed their lives over the next five years as her laid-back husband changed into an angry man with few memories of their past. Desperate to hold her fragile family together, Mia ignored her own unraveling and plunged into bipolar depression. 
    As she searched for answers to unanswerable questions, Mia moved her family from San Francisco to Paris, France before landing in a leafy Washington, D.C. suburb where she tried to find a fresh start only to become embroiled in a scandal of her own making. 
    Through ups and downs, mental illness and bad decisions, Mia struggled with what it means to be a good wife and mother, whether saving her marriage was worth the pain, and understanding that healing is a personal journey. 
    Always Yours, Bee is a heartbreaking yet triumphant and brave look at a woman, a marriage, and a family falling apart and coming out stronger. Told with clarity and introspection, it captures the terror of losing the person closest to you—yourself.
