    The real nature of time is still a mystery after thousands of years of philosophers and scientists analyzing it and generating theories about time. Prophecy has existed for most of humanity’s time on Earth and there is a lot of reason to think that seeing the future does see some of what happens. I also wrote two books on this subject including the history of prophecy and my own experiences. The titles include “Prophecy: A History and How to Guide” and “Use Intuition and Prophecy to Improve Your Life-By an Adept” In the twentieth century Albert Einstein gave the world his Theories of Special Relativity and General Relativity. He gave us a new way to view time in the world. The result of his analysis of time, space, and gravity has affected our scientific understanding about the world and Universe we live in. This interests me because I studied Physics before switching to Engineering in my Junior Year at University. Then there are people who claim to have had time travel experiences. I found enough of these stories for my book titled “Real Time Travel Stories from a Psychic Engineer”. With all that I’ve learned from my studies of Physics, my prophecy experiences, and research on real time travel stories this is my effort to try to integrate all of this information together. I hope you will find this book interesting and it will provoke your thinking.

For some women, the decision to have a hysterectomy is an easy one; for others, it is a difficult choice associated with concerns about risks, discomfort, and female identity. Yet many disorders of the uterus—fibroid tumors, uterine and cervical cancer, pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, adenomyosis, and uterine prolapse—may require surgical treatment. In this thoroughly updated edition of Hysterectomy: Exploring Your Options, gynecologists Edward E. Wallach, Esther Eisenberg, Isabel Green, and Stacey A. Scheib describe and explain every aspect of the procedure, including: Symptoms of gynecological disorders that may require uterine fibroid removal or hysterectomyThe full range of diagnostic and therapeutic imaging techniques, including MRI-focused ultrasoundThorough explanations of specific alternative measures that may be used to avoid the need for hysterectomyThe various techniques for hysterectomy, including single-incision surgery and robotic hysterectomyHow to prepare for surgery and what to expect while in the hospitalDetails on the surgery and postoperative recovery, including information about pain medications, when to resume daily activities, how sexual function may be affected, future reproductive possibilities, and the benefits and risks of hormone replacement therapyIncluded in this compassionate, comprehensive guide to treatment and recovery for women having—or deciding whether to have—a hysterectomy are stories of women whose own experiences with hysterectomy offer useful advice for anyone considering the procedure.  “A valuable reference.” —The New York Times

    What is this tiny audio-book? Who is this Koons Crooks? 
    With its privately-printed, anonymously-produced 140-copy first printing, Iterating Grace became the talk of summer 2015 in the tech world. From Buzzfeed to Tumblr to Fusion, people were puzzled and enthralled by the story of Koons Crooks, a young man who took the Twittered musings of the Silicon Valley elite to heart—and ended up on a profoundly unexpected path, leaving behind only the lovingly hand-calligraphed tweets that had meant so much to him. His story struck an immediate chord. 
    There were competing efforts to identify the author of Iterating Grace; blog posts and lengthy comment threads pointed finger at writers all over the country, from Robin Sloan to Susan Orlean to Dave Eggers. Other early theories supposed it was the tip of an elaborate marketing scheme, and soon all would be revealed. But gradually it became clear that it was simply this: a small piece of literary art, perfectly pitched and driven by a Twain-like bemused outrage, by a creator who did not want to be identified, and would not explain anything beyond what the satirical fable said for itself. 
    Disruptive innovators whose tweets are illustrated in Iterating Grace include: Austen Allred, cofounder of Grasswire; Sam Altman, president of Y Combinator; Marc Andreessen, coauthor of Mosaic, cofounder of Netscape and Andreessen Horowitz; Jeff Bussgang, VC at Flybrige Capital; Tony Conrad, cofounder and CEO of about.me; Benedict Evans, VC at Andreessen Horowitz; Brad Feld, VC at Foundry Group—and many more.A Macmillan Audio production.

    Every sixty-nine seconds, someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Of the top ten killers, it is the only disease for which there is no cure or treatment. For most people, there is nothing that they can do to fight back. But one family is doing all they can.The DeMoe family has the most devastating form of the disease that there is: early onset Alzheimer's, an inherited genetic mutation that causes the disease in 100 percent of cases, and has a 50 percent chance of being passed onto the next generation. Of the six DeMoe children whose father had it, five have inherited the gene; the sixth, Karla, has inherited responsibility for all of them. But rather than give up in the face of such news, the DeMoes have agreed to spend their abbreviated years as part of a worldwide study that could utterly change the landscape of Alzheimer's research and offers the brightest hope for future treatments-and possibly a cure.Drawing from several years of in-depth research with this charming and upbeat family, journalist Niki Kapsambelis tells the story of Alzheimer's through the humanizing lens of these ordinary people made extraordinary by both their terrible circumstances and their bravery.
