Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs Book Excerpt:

The most thrilling, genre-busting, unlikely science book you’ll ever read, from the world-renowned, multi-award-winning, superstar physicist Lisa Randal. 66 million years ago, a ten-mile-wide object from outer space hurtled into the Earth at incredible speed. The impact annihilated the dinosaurs, along with three-quarters of the other species on the planet. But what if this catastrophe was the sign of something greater: an opening vista onto the interconnectedness of the universe itself? This is the story of the astounding forces that underpin our existence; a horizon-expanding tour of the cosmos that unifies what we know about the universe with new thinking. From the far-flung reaches of space, the makeup of the universe and our solar system's place within it, to the mysterious and elusive stuff of dark matter and how it affects life here on Earth. ‘A fascinating, and surprisingly simple, theory...and a tantalising premise’ The Times ‘Extremely engaging’ BBC Focus

Homeostasis The Journey of a Manic Depressive Book Excerpt:

Donald Rodriguez takes readers on a roller-coaster ride as he shares what it means to live with Bipolar 1 Disorder. When manic episodes began to creep into his life, he put his family through hell and risked his own life in the process. Meanwhile, he loaded up on the toughest classes he could take as a premed student at Boston University, joined a fraternity, played for the club hockey team, and took on more than he could handle. His family physician prescribed him Adderall to focus and Trazodone to sleep. Rodriguez also started taking Prozac because his doctor thought he had situational depression because his grandma had died, his longtime girlfriend had dumped him, and his college coursework was stressing him out. Injuries had also forced him to stop playing hockey. In short order, he was abusing prescription drugs and scaring the people that loved him most. When he was finally diagnosed with Bipolar 1, he had to ease his life into a place of balance.

Science Religion and Deep Time Book Excerpt:

This book examines the meaning of religion within the scientific, evidence-based history of our known past since the big bang. While our current major religions are only centuries or millennia old, our volume discusses the origins and development of human religious practice and belief over our species’ existence of 300,000 years. The volume also connects the scientific approach to natural and social history with ancient truths of our religious ancestors using new lines of inquiry, new technologies, new modes of expression, and new concepts. It brings together insights of natural scientists, social scientists, philosophers, writers, and theologians to discuss narratives of the universe. The essays discuss that to apprehend religion scientifically, or to interpret and explain science theologically, the subject must be examined through a variety of disciplinary lenses simultaneously and raise several theoretical, philosophical, and moral problems. With a singular investigation into the meaning of religion in the context of the 13.8 billion-year history of our universe, this book will be indispensable for scholars and students of religious studies, big history, sociology and social anthropology, philosophy, and science and technology studies.

The Limitations of Theological Truth Book Excerpt:

Theology is based on God's true and unchanging Word, but does the Bible supply an unwavering foundation for spiritual certainties? Perhaps surprisingly, Brush contends that it does not, because, like science, it is a human discipline and subject to our limitations of knowledge, interpretation, and objectivity. In part one, Brush unpacks this contention, showing how Christians both past and present have arrived at conclusions that actually run counter to biblical teaching, and how these interpretive viewpoints have changed over time. In part two, he makes the case that flawed theological positions have resulted in views that needlessly conflict with science, and that these clashes can be resolved with more accurate formulations. Brush evenly evaluates questions including the age of the earth, the origin of life, and the end of time. Christians who wish to better understand the relationship between their faith and science will be encouraged by the great harmony that Brush sees between scientific findings and biblical teaching. As he guides readers into an awareness of the inherent limitations of our knowledge, believers can cultivate greater humility regarding these contested issues.

A User s Guide The Sequel Book Excerpt:

“There is science and there is religion and never the twain shall meet.” Is that to be the fate of these two disciplines? Having one foot in the religious world and the other in the scientific can be as precarious as attempting to remain astride two logs in a river. In this sequel to A User’s Guide to Our Present World: What Everyone Should Know about Religion and Science, complexions of what religion and science look like today are investigated. It discuses topics from Jesus and family values, evangelists who arrive at your door, discrimination and racism, and the dark side for religion, to delicate balances impacting us and the world, climate change, the pandemic, and how ancient structures like Stonehenge and the pyramids could have been built for science. The study then turns to theological implications of scientific theories, including relativity and quantum. Sure to ruffle the feathers of some from both sides, the examination focuses on how scientific paradigms fail to cohere with traditional theological doctrines and presents the potentially uncomfortable view that scientific revolutions might warrant a corresponding revolution for theology itself.

Squid Cinema From Hell Book Excerpt:

Here be Kraken! The Squid Cinema From Hell draws upon writers like Vilem Flusser, Donna J. Haraway, Graham Harman and Eugene Thacker to offer up a critical analysis of cephalopods and other tentacular creatures in contemporary media, while also speculating that digital media might themselves constitute a weird, intelligent alien. If this were not enough to shiver ye timbers, the book engages with contemporary discourses of posthumanism, speculative realism, object-oriented ontology and animal studies to suggest that humans are the products of media rather than media being the products of humans. Including case studies of films by Denis Villeneuve, Park Chan-wook and Celine Sciamma, The Squid Cinema From Hell also provides a daring engagement with various media beyond cinema, including literature, music videos, 4DX, advertising, websites, YouTube, Artificial Intelligence and more. Zounds! This unique and Lovecraftian book will change the way you think about, and with, our contemporary, media-saturated world. For as we contemplate the abyss, the abyss looks back at us - and chthulumedia, or media at the end of human times, begin to emerge.

Kong Godzilla and the Living Earth Book Excerpt:

During the 2010s, science fiction's immortal adversaries King Kong and Godzilla, representing our conflicts per Carl Sagan's "dream dragons" analogy, made comebacks in American cinema. The blockbuster Kaiju resurged onto the screen, depicting these protectors of an Earth plagued by mankind's hubris and folly. With Earth's future hanging in the balance, their climactic 2021 staging settled a score between the two giant monsters, resolving Toho's classic 1963 film King Kong vs. Godzilla. As formidable creatures emerging from Time's Tomb on Mother Earth, metaphorical Kong and Godzilla are considered here in light of new millennial environmentalism's stark reality. This book, nostalgic in tone, explores the meaning of Kong and Godzilla as planetary saviors--titanic protectors of a theoretical "living Earth" Gaia--defending the globe from a prehistoric plague of adversaries.

His business prospers. They have two boys. On a sailing holiday they are attacked by pirates. James is killed. Tina escapes with her boys and carries on the business.

After reestablishing the company headquarters in England, Tina takes her two boys on a fishing trip into the Scottish highlands. They meet a recluse Scottish earl. The boys initiate a romance between the earl and their mother. Marrying the earl, Tina takes him for a honeymoon sail on the C.M.Paradine. They and others have a myriad of experiences in the Caribbean chasing a thief who intended to sell to terrorists the company's irreplaceable supply of a lethal material he had stolen.
