Description : WADE DALTON WAS HAVING A VERY BAD DAY His five-year-old had accidentally set the kitchen on fire. His daughter was surly, as usual. The baby hadn't been fed yet. And his mother—aka "The Childminder"—had eloped…with a scam artist. Could it get any worse? Turned out it could. Because the annoyingly beautiful daughter of said scam artist was now at the door, batting her doe eyes at him and proposing that she be his temporary nanny while awaiting the newlyweds' return. Could he trust her to be under his roof? Could he trust himself with her under his roof?
Description : Can a young man racing through the infinite dimensions of time save the cosmos from the evil Zarai? Will his faithful companions betray him in the final decisive battle? War has engulfed the land of Vasilion. Haldor de Morting, the son of a manor lord, is racing through the countryside to unearth the enemy's plan of attack with a group of faithful companions. To make their way home, they will have to fight through the deadly ranks of a fearsome army. Some of the heroes will not survive. At the most desperate moment in the battle to save his homeland, Haldor is whisked away to another dimension, where he encounters strange beings, unearthly vistas, and wise counselors, who band together on a cosmic mission to overcome the two rays of evil, and discover the second foundation stone. He will meet XW3, the serpentine creature who lives in tenfold time; the beautiful warrior, Elephyre, princess of the Tiri, as well as Zetlakytyl, the giant Fire-Lord of Wundu-Galat who fought in the Second Battle at the beginning of creation. But can any of their vast powers save Haldor from the terrible emissaries of the Zarai, who seek to destroy him? Can they save him from the vision of his own self in the depths of time?
Description : When Katie Belle finds hundreds of starfish that have washed ashore and is unable to return them to the sea, her dog points out the vast number of stars in the sky and explains about life and death.
Description : In the two decades since the development of the first eclipsing-binary modeling code, new analytic techniques and the availability of powerful, sometimes dedicated computing facilities have made possible vastly improved determinations of fundamental and even transient stellar parameters. The scale of these developments, of course, raises questions about modeling tools, techniques, and philosophies, such as: Who will maintain and upgrade the codes? Will the codes be open to improvement by outsiders, and if so, how? And, indeed, what should be the goals of a modeling program? Such questions had not been aired for a long time and, for this reason alone, deserved to be discussed in as general a forum as the community provides. This volume contains material presented by Commission 42 (Close Binary Stars) during the International Astronomical Union's XXI General Assembly in Argentina, July 1991, and during IAU Colloquium 151, Cordoba, Argentina, August 1991. The techniques discussed include simulations of stellar bright and dark spots, streams, partial and complete stellar disks, prominences, and other features characterizing active stars; modeling of polarization parameters; models that use radial velocities as well as line profile simulations to model velocity field variation across stellar disks; the weighted effects of brightness asymmetries; and models for translucent eclipsing agents such as stellar winds.
Description : Threading Stars Of Light is a grouping of prose poems with a theme of expression of emotions. With a craft of making The Stars Of Fate Starflakes to express emotion, and letters of Hope and Light to try to get people that have had issues with or trouble expressing a need to ask for help or receive helpful words of inspirations from friends and family.
Description : The most complete and up-to-date reference volume available on variable stars, their classification and properties.
Description : Within the wealth of information available this book presents electromagnetic wavelengths, their interaction and travel paths. Included are wavelength processes between and on stars, sun, moon and earth with natural color drawings their shapes indicating direction. How working with quantum the strong nuclear force, larger sight observed areas and their interactions in travel paths with earth functions. Written in continuous instruction method this presentation is easier to understand, including information that can be seen by everyone. Origins of storms and other global activity are charted with information given. The appreciation for traveling wavelengths can be an adventure or a discovery. Wavelengths at times flash sparkling, pulsing outward into every color and other wavelengths having sound waves or P waves. Wavelengths are always maintaining what they are. A means of discovery are sensors advancing technologies in wavelengths with examples given. Information is drawn from history and presented in this book. This books main focus is toward an understanding of wavelengths and interactions....
Description : There has been very considerable progress in research into low-mass stars, brown dwarfs and extrasolar planets during the past few years, particularly since the fist edtion of this book was published in 2000. In this new edtion the authors present a comprehensive review of both the astrophysical nature of individual red dwarf and brown dwarf stars and their collective statistical properties as an important Galactic stellar population. Chapters dealing with the observational properies of low-mass dwarfs, the stellar mass function and extrasolar planets have been completely revised. Other chapters have been significantly revised and updated as appropriate, including important new material on observational techniques, stellar acivity, the Galactic halo and field star surveys. The authors detail the many discoveries of new brown dwarfs and extrasolar planets made since publication of the first edition of the book and provide a state-of-the-art review of our current knowledge of very low-mass stars, brown dwarfs and extrasolar planets, including both the latest observational results and theoretical work.
Description : In close parallel with the fifth volume of stars lights theme and content, Stem and Leaf Volume, is an attempt to put the entire six volumes of stars light poetry in perspective. Perhaps a comet would be a better metaphor to capture the spirit of this volume of work in terms of its connectivity potential to the continuous & long tail blazing of light from the point of its origin to that of destination. That is, a clear demarcation of territory travelled through stars light journey. In simple words, another way of looking at the milky way in heaven, is to see it as a large star comet itself in standstill with all trail light path way travelled made visible in close up. And for further elucidation of this volume may I then suggest that the stem of a leaf is itself the trunk of tree par excellence, making sure the leaf never leaves the tree despite all the falling, break away, and separation in each year and in each and every other season.
Description : A classic Western story that inspired no fewer than three different filmed versions, The Light of Western Stars tells the tale of Madeline Hammond, a wealthy young woman from the high society of the East Coast who seeks a change of pace in the rowdy Wild West. She finds out a lot about herself -- and finds true love in the process. The book's gorgeous descriptions of the Western landscape and life on the ranch have enthralled generations of Zane Grey fans.
