Harvard's top astronomer explains why he believes our solar system was recently visited by sophisticated extraterrestrial technology from a faraway star.
Scientists at a Hawaiian observatory saw an object, ‘Oumuamua, flying through our inner solar system in late 2017, and it was travelling so fast that it could only have originated from another star. It wasn't an asteroid, according to Harvard's top astronomer Avi Loeb, since it was travelling too rapidly along a peculiar orbit and leaving no trail of gas or debris in its wake. The item could only be a piece of sophisticated technology manufactured by a distant extraterrestrial civilisation, according to one theory.
Loeb takes readers inside the amazing tale of Oumuamua, the first interstellar visitor to be discovered in our solar system, in Extraterrestrial. He lays out his controversial thesis and its far-reaching ramifications for science, religion, and the destiny of our species and planet. Extraterrestrial is a mind-bending trip across the furthest limits of science, space-time, and the human imagination, challenging readers to strive for the stars—and to think critically about what's out there, no matter how bizarre it may seem.

Rockefeller the richest figure in America's history. Originally serialized in 19 parts in McClure's magazine, the book was a seminal example of muckraking, and inspired many other journalists to write about trusts, large businesses that (in the absence of strong antitrust law in the 19th century) attempted to gain monopolies in various industries. The History of the Standard Oil Company was credited with hastening the breakup of Standard Oil, which came about in 1911.

    This volume deals with one of the most understudied aspects of everyday life in Russian society. Its main heroes are the providers of goods and services to whom people turn for healthcare instead of official medical institutions. A wide range of agents is described—from network marketing companies to 'folk' journals on health as well as healers, complementary medicine specialists, and religious organizations. 
    
    Krasheninnikova’s book is based on rich empirical observations and avoids both positive and critical assessment of the analyzed phenomena. Her investigation pays particular attention to the legal, social, and economic status of informal healthcare providers. She demonstrates that these agents tend to flourish in bigger towns rather than in small settlements, where public healthcare is lacking. The study reveals the important role of institutions that are generally not related to alternative medicine, such as pharmacies, libraries, and church shops.  
    
    The result is a vivid and thorough introduction to the world of self-medication and alternative healing in contemporary Russia. A special emphasis was made on the flexibility of boundaries between formal and informal healthcare due to the evolution of rules and regulations.
