Magnus: #1 (Luna Lodge: Hunters of Atlas)

by Madison Stevens

Reporter Lara is finding the limits of small-town journalism grating. After all, life in Eagle Ridge is fairly low-key and personal, not exactly the stuff of Pulitzer Prizes.

It doesn’t help that her jerk boss seems determined to make her life a living hell, and he refuses to let her check into strange deliveries being made to a local Atlantean-worshipping cult, the Azilians.

Super-soldier hybrid Magnus and his people are tasting true freedom for the first time. Still on the run from the ruthless Horatius Group, they’ve settled in the Pacific Northwest, hoping for a fresh start, including using the cover of the nearby Azilians.

When Lara’s investigation brings her face-to-face with the stunning Magnus, they find themselves drawn to each other, b...

Punjabi (Short Story)

by David Joseph

In this groundbreaking historical short story, David Joseph brings to light one of the most shameful incidents in American history—“The Bellingham Riots” that, as the papers read, “wiped the Punjabi off the map.” The story reveals the plight of Sikh and Japanese in the U.S. who fought discrimination and established a proud legacy in the history of a country that is truly a “melting pot.” The story opens up with a fifteen-year-old boy and a young Japanese couple that flee Bellingham to escape the violence. “Punjabi” is a signature David Joseph story that begins with tragedy and ends with the reader in tears of joy. Using notes from a conversation with an elderly Punjabi man, David Joseph met in a café in West Virginia, and notes from interviewing elderly Japanese, Dav...

Tunguska: An Apocalyptic Event Beyond Belief

by Conrad Bauer

What happened to the Tunguska forest? Scientists have been searching for answers since it happened over 100 years ago! Could the answers lay in the paranormal?
There was a massive explosion on the 30th June 1908. Flattening 2,000 square kilometres of Siberian forest, the exact cause of the incredible blast is still unknown. Some have suggested that the event resulted from a meteor slamming into the Earth’s surface. But no impact crater has ever been found. Other people have suggested that the meteor imploded in the sky above the forest. To this day, it is still the largest recorded impact event to strike the Earth. To this day, the explosion is still something of a mystery.
Thousands of scientific papers have attempted to get to the bottom of exactly what happened that day. W...

Common Core Standards and World War II: A Literary Veteran's Day Observance

by Pat Scales

President Dwight D. Eisenhower, a five-star general and commander of the Allied Forces in Europe during World War II, established a committee in 1954 to plan a Veterans Day observance. This day honors all veterans of the United States and is held each year on November 11 with a somber ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery.

The Jews of Iberia: A Short History

by Bejarano Gutierrez, Juan Marcos

The history of Jews in Spain and Portugal spans more than thousand years. By most measures, it is even longer than the large-scale settlement of Jews in the land of Israel which was interrupted several times in Jewish history. Legends ascribe the arrival of the earliest settlers to the days of the biblical prophet Obadiah, but archeologically speaking, the first record of Jews is much later. This book includes an overview of Jewish life in the Iberian Peninsula from its early days through the Expulsion. It includes a special focus on the rise of the Conversos, Jews who were forcibly converted to Christianity....

It is the road to madness—beginning that day in August of 1934 when he took over absolute power and ...

A History of Male Psychological Disorders in Britain, 1945-1980 (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Alison Haggett

This book is open access under a CC BY license.Statistically, women appear to suffer more frequently from depressive and anxiety disorders, featuring more regularly in primary care figures for consultations, diagnoses and prescriptions for psychotropic medication. This has been consistently so throughout the post-war period with current figures suggesting that women are approximately twice more likely to suffer from affective disorders than men. However, this book suggests that the statistical landscape reveals only part of the story. Currently, 75 per cent of suicides are among men, and this trend can also be traced back historically to data that suggests this has been the case since the beginning of the twentieth-century. This book suggests that male psychological illness was in fact no ...

A History of Self-Harm in Britain: A Genealogy of Cutting and Overdosing (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Chris Millard

This book is open access under a CC BY license and is the first account of self-harming behaviour in its proper historical and political context. The rise of self-cutting and overdosing in the 20th century is linked to the sweeping changes in mental and physical health, and wider political context. The welfare state, social work, Second World War, closure of the asylums, even the legalization of suicide, are all implicated in the prominence of self harm in Britain. The rise of 'overdosing as a cry for help' is linked to the integration of mental and physical healthcare, the NHS, and the change in the law on suicide and attempted suicide. The shift from overdosing to self-cutting as the most prominent 'self-damaging' behaviour is also explained, linked to changes in hospital organization an...

This book is open access under a CC BY license. The grand narrative of twentieth-century medicine is the conquering of acute infectious diseases and the rise in chronic, degenerative diseases. The history of fungal infections does not fit this picture; indeed, it runs against it - this book charts the path of fungal infections from the mid nineteenth century to the dawn of the twenty-first century, both in Britain and the United States. It examines how fungal infections became more prevalent and serious over the century, a rise that was linked to the increased incidence of chronic diseases and to social, technological and medical 'progress'. In 1900, conditions such as ringworm, athlete's foot and thrush were minor, external and mostly chronic conditions  irritating, but mostly self-limit...

Dissecting the Criminal Corpse: Staging Post-Execution Punishment in Early Modern England (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Elizabeth T. Hurren

Those convicted of homicide were hanged on the public gallows before being dissected under the Murder Act in Georgian England. Yet, from 1752, whether criminals actually died on the hanging tree or in the dissection room remained a medical mystery in early modern society. Dissecting the Criminal Corpse takes issue with the historical cliché of corpses dangling from the hangman’s rope in crime studies. Some convicted murderers did survive execution in early modern England. Establishing medical death in the heart-lungs-brain was a physical enigma. Criminals had large bull-necks, strong willpowers, and hearty survival instincts. Extreme hypothermia often disguised coma in a prisoner hanged in the winter cold. The youngest and fittest were capable of reviving on the dissection table. Many d...

Eiderdown

Over the centuries eiderdown has been coveted by the Vikings, Russian tsars and medieval tax collectors who accepted it as revenue. The plumage of a fat sea duck, eiderdown – treasured for its extraordinary lightness and insulation – now joins cocaine as an instrument of globalisation and commodity of the super-rich.In this revelatory essay, Edward Posnett travels to the Westfjords region of Iceland to explore the fragile relationship between Icelanders and the duck. Eiderdown harvesting began with the arrival of Norse settlers in the 9th century, and it is now stuffed into pillows, duvets and clothing which sell for thousands of pounds in Japan, China, Germany and Russia. What might at first appear an idyllic pastime becomes a story of compromise and exploitation. Posnett’s finely ...

Moving away from home, leaving the nest, could be the beginning of a voyage that ends in a faraway country we would not have even considered when we set out—until we got there and discovered its secrets, its culture, its undiscovered paradises. Half a lifetime ago, the author ended his voyage of discovery in the Philippines, a country with one foot in the world of fairies and spirits, and where every event has an unusual twist, whether wedding or funeral, kidnapping or vasectomy, getting a driver’s license or getting a haircut. There are fascinating destinations far from the beaten track and a vibrant music scene that is everywhere present, even in the operating theater. Typhoons and earthquakes add a different kind of excitement. These events and experiences, sometimes comic or tragic...

He's gorgeous, completely unavailable, and unobtainable.
