    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.

    1914: History in an Hour

    Love history? Know your stuff with History in an Hour. 
    In 1914 the world changed. Europe’s great powers were dragged, one by one, into a war by Serbian conflict which affected very few of them directly. At least it would resemble the short sharp battles of the previous century, many thought – fought with military bands, horsemen, and swift victories. But 1914 proved to be different, a watershed, as old notions of war were trampled in the mud. 
    ‘1914: History in an Hour’ is the indispensable overview of the year that marked the end of the Belle Époque and the shocking birth of modern mechanised warfare. It became a war of unimaginable horror, fought with terrifying new weapons that produced death on an industrial scale, a war that involved so many nations and reached into the fabric of their societies. 1914 shaped the First World War, and the years beyond. 
    Rupert Colley's 1914 is a top pick for history enthusiasts, offering an in-depth look into the year that forever changed the course of world events. The book is a bestseller, reflecting its high quality and the author's ability to engage readers with the shocking birth of modern mechanised warfare. 
    For fans of Anthony Holmes (Managing Through Turbulent Times), David B. Mccoy (The Kent State Shootings and What Came Before), Martyn Whittock (American Vikings), and Neil Smith (The Vietnam War).

    The Second Book of John is a book of the New Testament attributed to John the Evangelist, traditionally thought to be the author of the other two epistles of John, and the Gospel of John (though this is disputed). Most modern scholars believe this is not John the Apostle, but in general there is no consensus as to the identity of this person or group.

    Chronicles the entanglement of traditional and experimental music in northeast Brazil Between Nostalgia and Apocalypse is a close-to-the-ground account of musicians and dancers from Arcoverde, Pernambuco—a small city in the northeastern Brazilian backlands. The book's focus on samba de coco families, marked as bearers of tradition, and the band Cordel do Fogo Encantado, marketed as pop iconoclasts, offers a revealing portrait of performers engaged in new forms of cultural preservation during a post-dictatorship period of democratization and neoliberal reform. Daniel B. Sharp explores how festivals, museums, television, and tourism steep musicians' performances in national-cultural nostalgia, which both provides musicians and dancers with opportunities for cultural entrepreneurship and hinders their efforts to be recognized as part of the Brazilian here-and-now. The book charts how Afro-Brazilian samba de coco became an unlikely emblem in an interior where European and indigenous mixture predominates. It also chronicles how Cordel do Fogo Encantado—drawing upon the sounds of samba de coco, ecstatic Afro-Brazilian religious music, and heavy metal—sought to make folklore dangerous by embodying an apocalyptic register often associated with northeastern Brazil. Publication of this book was supported by AMS 75 PAYS Endowment of the American Musicological Society, funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
