Growing up in Southern California during the Depression within a dysfunctional family controlled by a domineering stepfather was difficult. Here are a few topics: 1. George often bragged: “I got my first piece of ass when I was ten.” 2. Mom thought that it was good for me to see my dead friend lying in a casket. Wrong! 3. I would search the house for mom’s bottles of wine. When I found one, I poured her precious fluid down the drain. 4. As Jennie drove the station wagon, George ran his right hand all the way up her dress. This was very humiliating to me. 5. Three of my childhood friends lost their lives. My dad and one uncle committed suicide. 6. George put the 1938 Oldsmobile in low gear and rammed the big, chrome plated bumper into the right side of the parked car to cave it in. 7. Mom said that she saw George having sex with one of the burros. 8. I just hoped that my arms held out so that I would not drop the whirling "buzz" saw and cause it to shatter. 9. When my car hit the moving train, I was ejected and as I rolled through the weeds I said to myself “you’re dead, Buz.” 10. I lined the wall of the thirty-two foot deep cesspool with loose bricks while never using any safety equipment. 11. As I turned the steering wheel of the Model A to the left, the car landed on its right side. One guy’s head went partially through the cloth roof. 12. We were thirty miles away from the first hydrogen bomb blast. The heat and shock waves were intense. 13. George shot himself in the heart. No one attended his funeral. Click Here to Purchase.

The Founders often engaged in treason. To make sure nobody would ever be charge and convicted, limitations were placed in the Constitution to prevent enforcement. Since all officials have never been under a "constitutional" oath that commands obedience, nor a provision that would cover a broad and general meaning of the word treason, our Founders and those who followed have had unlimited opportunities to escape charges and punishment for many treasonous acts against the American people.

A soccer match is an ever-changing environment. With every movement of teammates, opponents or the ball a new playing "problem" is created, demanding each player on and off the ball to formulate and carry out appropriate playing "solutions". Because most players rely almost exclusively on their dominant foot, their repertoire of solutions is obviously limited. Unfortunately, in many cases players are presented with training sessions that cater to their dominant side and their coaches rarely, if ever, train or even encourage the use of the weaker foot. In this book, Martin Bidzinski presents a training method that focuses on developing physically balanced players who are comfortable playing the ball with either foot to any direction of play, thus giving them the full 360 degree range of playing options.

30¢ and a Prayer provides a true account of the violent abuse - physically, verbally and emotional - Lavonia Harlow endured during her marriage of 2.5 years to her high school sweetheart and first love, Geno. Lavonia eventually developed the strength and courage to walk away from this turbulent marriage. She had only 30¢ in her purse - and a prayer in her heart - when she decided to leave, but she packed up and moved to Philadelphia to live with her Aunt and Uncle. Lavonia has never looked back! She has remained in Philadelphia for 36 years and during this time Lavonia has dedicated her entire life to God - and she has been immensely rewarded for her faithfulness! Lavonia was ordained as President of the Missionary Ministry in 1979. She was ordained as an Elder in 1994 of Ford Memorial Temple. On February 2, 2003, Lavonia was ordained as one of the Associate Pastors of Ford Memorial Temple. At the Next Generation Fellowship Ministries Conference in 2004, she was ordained as an Overseer. Her blessings do not stop there. Realizing her love for all of God's people, Lavonia returned to college and graduated with a B.A. in Sociology in 1995 from the University of Pennsylvania. She also holds a B.S. in Business Education from North Georgia Vocational Technical College. Lavonia is also excited about becoming a first-time homeowner in 2007. What Lavonia is most proud of, however, is the number of souls she has been able to lead to God. Lavonia's consistency and strength through the power of prayer in her life has caused the land that surrounds her on a daily basis to be healed. Lavonia has worked the altar for many years so that others may be healed, delivered, set free, and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, thus destroying the attacks of the enemy. Lavonia's testimony serves as a reminder that no matter what we are faced with in life and regardless of how bleak our situation appears... God can and He will deliver you! Click Here to Purchase.

Joesph Campbell forged an approach to the study of myth and legend that made ancient traditions and beliefs immediate, relevant and universal. His work as a teacher and author, and his immensely popular interviews with Bill Moyers, made him an icon to those who look to the ancient understanding embodied in myth for guidance in their encounter with the great mysteries of existence: birth, growth, the development of the soul, and death. His lifelong interest in the subject began with a boyhood fascination for American Indian mythology and continued through his undergraduage career at Columbia, his exposure to the 1920s avant-garde movements in Germany and Paris, and his 38 years of teaching at Sarah Lawrence. The interaction of influence between Campbell and the leading intellectual, artistic and spiritual leaders of the 20th century included figures such as Jiddu Krishnamurti, Adelle Davis, John Steinbeck, Heinrich Zimmer, Maya Deren, Carl Jung, Robert Bly, and George Lucas, to name only a few.

The Properties of Water and their Role in Colloidal and Biological Systems, Volume 16 (Interface Science and Technology)
This book treats the different current as well as unusual and hitherto often unstudied physico-chemical and surface-thermodynamic properties of water that govern all polar interactions occurring in it. These properties include the hyper-hydrophobicity of the water-air interface, the cluster formation of water molecules in the liquid state and the concomitant variability of the ratio of the electron-accepticity to electron-donicity of liquid water as a function of temperature, T. The increase of that ratio with T is the cause of the increase in hydration repulsion ("hydration pressure") between polar surfaces upon heating, when they are immersed in water. The book also treats the surface properties of apolar and polar molecules, polymers, particles and cells, as well as their mutual interaction energies, when immersed in water, under the influence of the three prevailing non-covalent forces, i.e., Lewis acid-base (AB), Lifshitz-van der Waals (LW) and electrical double layer (EL) interactions. The polar AB interactions, be they attractive or repulsive, typically represent up to 90% of the total interaction energies occurring in water. Thus the addition of AB energies to the LW + EL energies of the classical DLVO theory of energy vs. distance analysis makes this powerful tool (the Extended DLVO theory) applicable to the quantitative study of the stability of particle suspensions in water. The influence of AB forces on the interfacial tension between water and other condensed-phase materials is stressed and serves, inter alia, to explain, measure and calculate the driving force of the hydrophobic attraction between such materials (the "hydrophobic effect"), when immersed in water. These phenomena, which are typical for liquid water, influence all polar interactions that take place in it. All of these are treated from the viewpoint of the properties of liquid water itself, including the properties of advancing freezing fronts and the surface properties of ice at 0o C.
