Nostradamus in an Age of Mass Construction by Clois Roberts Summary
A prayerful declaration from Michele De Nostredame: "When the time arrives- for the removal of ignorance, the accuracy of my earlier predictions will be sufficiently established, so that those of good intelligence will recognize that my work is a correspondence with truth; and at that time will be, the greater benefit of all my work." Excerpt from a letter to King Henri II of France, concerning his books of prophecy. (Salon, France 1558) Those who share a continuing interest in the spiritual side of human ability and look from an angle that promises a better world will find pieces of hope in the predictability and insight offered in the selected poetry of Nostradamus. Observations of scheduled elements belonging to an ancient sequence of events, resurfacing as if in accordance with a previously resolved tradition, generated a flood of queries from friends, particularly after the events in New York on 9-11. Years of research concerned with the history of human abilities, prophecy, and personal experience with the best of contributors to our civilization provided the author with an understanding of the journey along the road to truth. A decidedly reliable guide, Nostradamus in an Age of Mass Construction refers directly to the ancient datum, "Yes, those who want to know, shall."

Fish culture in hatcheries and other aquacultural facilities is becoming much more intensive all over the world. The success of all kinds of fish rearing depends on the quality of management and this depends, in turn, on understanding the biology of fishes and the aquatic environment in which they live. This book directly addresses the relationship between the aquatic environment and the fishes. An understanding of this by the reader will result in a reduction of disease outbreaks through improved management.
The Economics of Salmon Aquaculture by Frank Asche,Trond Bjorndal Summary
First published in 1990, The Economics of Salmon Aquaculture was the first book to systematically analyse the salmon aquaculture industry, from both a market and production perspective. Since publication of the first edition of this book, the salmon aquaculture industry has grown at a phenomenal rate, with salmon now being consumed in more than 100 countries worldwide. This second edition of a very popular and successful book brings the reader right up to date with all the major current issues pertaining to salmon aquaculture. Commencing with an overview of the production process in aquaculture, the following chapters provide in-depth coverage of the sources of the world’s supply of salmon, the growth in productivity, technological changes, environmental issues, markets, market structure and competitiveness, lessons that can be learnt from the culture of other species, optimal harvesting techniques, production planning, and investment in salmon farms. Written by Frank Ashe and Trond Bjørndal, two of the world's leading experts in the economics of aquaculture, this second edition of The Economics of Salmon Aquaculture provides the salmon aquaculture industry with an essential reference work, including a wealth of commercially important information. This book is also a valuable resource for upper level students and professionals in aquaculture and economics, and libraries in all universities and research establishments where these subjects are studied and taught should have copies of this important book on their shelves.
The Facilitator Era by Tom Steffen Summary
Some time ago, Ralph Winter brilliantly identified three eras of modern missions: Era 1: William Carey focused on the coastlands; Era 2: Hudson Taylor focused on the inlands; Era 3: Donald McGavran and Cameron Townsend focused on unreached peoples. With all the fast and furious changes swirling around us today in twenty-first century missions, have we entered a Fourth Era? If so, who are the people primarily involved? How are they selected? How are they trained? How long do they serve? Has the Third Era ministry focus--reaching the unreached--changed? If so, to what? Are there any successful case studies out there? Have McGavran and Townsend passed the baton to a new leader(s)? If so, to whom? This book seeks to answer these and related questions. Contributors include: Dr. Ben Beckner Dr. Monroe Brewer Dr. Don Finley Mike Griffis Dr. Gary Hipp, MD Jerry Hogshead Kaikou Maisu Judy Manna Kenn Oke Dr. A. Sue Russell Dr. Robert Strauss Peter Swann Bryan Thomas Diane Thomas Dr. Mike Wilson Dr. Sherwood G. Lingenfelter
Death, Taxes, and Leaky Waders by John Gierach Summary
Brilliant, witty, perceptive essays about fly-fishing, the natural world, and life in general by the acknowledged master of fishing writers. Death, Taxes, and Leaky Waders collects forty of John Gierach’s finest essays on fishing from six of his books. Like all his writing, these essays are seasoned by a keen sense of observation and a deep knowledge and love of fishing lore, leavened by a wonderfully wry sense of humor. Gierach often begins with an observation that soon leads to something below the surface, which he finds and successfully lands. As Gierach says, writing is a lot like fishing. This is the first anthology of John Gierach’s work, a collection that is sure to delight both die-hard fans and new readers alike. To enter Gierach’s world is to experience the daily wonder, challenge, and occasional absurdity of the fishing life—from such rituals as the preparation of camp coffee (for best results, serve in a tin cup) to the random, revelatory surprises, such as the flashing beauty of a grayling leaping out of the water. Whether he’s catching fish or musing on the ones that got away, Gierach is always entertaining and enlightening, writing with his own inimitable blend of grace and style, passion and wit.
Death in the Night by J.M. Schubert Summary
Taylor Thorn, formally Taylor Simon, finally has all she has ever dreamed of and is living the life of a wife and mother. Although she has wealth beyond anyones imagination, being a wife and mother is all she ever wanted. A friend calls asking for help. The friend is the president of the United States, and he has trouble in the mountains of Colorado. She is the only person who may stop a panic and save the people there. She was able to stop them in Texas. Some people have taken the drug that alters the DNA of a person and causes a metamorphosis into an extremely dangerous killing machine that is hard to stop and harder to kill. How can Taylor, who has everything to lose, take the chance and risk it all to help a friend and save lives at the same time put her own life at risk, stopping these very dangerous creatures? In her quest to stop these monsters, she must face something in her past she doesnt remember because it is too painful. Then she must deal with the betrayal and of her whole life being a lie then and the danger of someone who loves her too much, and that twisted love can ruin her. Taylor must enlist the help of the only people that can possibly save them all, and these people are part monsters themselves.
Philosophical Papers and Letters by G.W. Leibniz Summary
The selections contained in these volumes from the papers and letters of Leibniz are intended to serve the student in two ways: first, by providing a more adequate and balanced conception of the full range and penetration of Leibniz's creative intellectual powers; second, by inviting a fresher approach to his intellectual growth and a clearer perception of the internal strains in his thinking, through a chronological arrangement. Much confusion has arisen in the past through a neglect of the develop ment of Leibniz's ideas, and Couturat's impressive plea, in his edition of the Opuscu/es et fragments (p. xii), for such an arrangement is valid even for incomplete editions. The beginning student will do well, however, to read the maturer writings of Parts II, III, and IV first, leaving Part I, from a period too largely neglected by Leibniz criticism, for a later study of the still obscure sources and motives of his thought. The Introduction aims primarily to provide cultural orientation and an exposition of the structure and the underlying assumptions of the philosophical system rather than a critical evaluation. I hope that together with the notes and the Index, it will provide those aids to the understanding which the originality of Leibniz's scientific, ethical, and metaphysical efforts deserve.
