I am Mouse: thoughts from outside the box

by Mike Bhangu

Well, here I am… I did a little star gazing in an attempt to separate the mortal and the immortal me, and I did a little star gazing so to understand the world I was thrust into. And after years of staring at the night canvas, I’ve come to realize that I was born into a world, like you were, already in motion, and to set beliefs, agendas, power struggles, and as a member of the ruled class.

Society can be divided into two dominant groups, the rulers and the ruled, and the philosophical expressions within this manuscript attempt to present the deficiencies in the rule of shepherds, and the feelings of those they herd.

GAP

by Joseph Dulmage

Is the earth only 6,000 years old, or could it be much older? The Gap deals with a controversial Bible doctrine referred to as the gap theory. The idea God created heaven and earth in verse 1, and then destroyed it all in verse 2- is a subject of much debate. If the gap theory is correct, it essentially means an indeterminate span of time (or gap) exist in-between Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2. And then God recreated the universe in six days as recorded in the remaining verses of the chapter. There is an opposing point of view to the gap. Many Christians believe God did not cancel his original creation, and no elapse of time between Ge.1:1 and Ge.1:2 transpired. This Bible study’s purpose is to present scriptural evidence supporting the gap did indeed happen. Although this is an extremely ...

The pre-Egyptian gods from the Sahara (The Forgotten Civilisations of Africa Book 8)

by Taklit Mebarek Slaouti and Bob Idjennaden

Set, Neith, Amun (or Ammon), Ptah, Thoth... all these gods (and many others) are known to belong to the Ancient Egyptians' beliefs, but how many of us know that these gods were first worshipped by their western neighbours : the North Africans?Indeed, many deities were “born” and worshipped in North Africa by their inhabitants (called then “Libyans” by ancient Greek texts, called “Berbers” today) before being adopted much later by the Egyptians.Based on the researches lead by prominent Egyptologists, this book describes what gods originate from North Africa and who these first inhabitants of North Africa were and their connections with Egyptians.It is a great read if you want to learn something new about the origins of the beliefs of Ancient Egyptians....

Captain Cook

by W.H.G. Kingston

Among all those Englishmen who, from a humble origin, have risen to an honourable position, Captain James Cook is especially worthy of record. His parents were of the peasant class—his father having commenced life as a farm-labourer, and his mother being a cottager’s daughter. Probably, however, they were both superior to others of the same station, as the husband, in process of time, became farm-bailiff to his employer—a Mr Thomas Skottowe. This was about the year 1730, and the farm of which he had the management was called Airy-Holme, near Ayton, in Yorkshire. Not far from this place, at the village of Marton, near Stockton-upon-Tees; his son James was born, on October 27, 1728. James was one of nine children, all of whom he survived, with the exception of a sister who married a fi...

The Empty Hand: A Poor Life

by Mia Thomas

This book certainly isn't a love story, it is simply a compilation of events which focus primarily on those from the labouring class, who assisted greatly in forming the backbone of the British Empire. Bonded by the same common cause, prosperity and a better life for kith and kin, many existed in the most unimaginable circumstances, yet were living cheek by jowl almost with the rich and wealthy in the same localities. This is where the two worlds would truly collide, the prosperity of the wealthiest cities in the world coming face to face with some of the most appalling slums in Europe. Within a minutes walk the Victorian pedestrian could encounter feelings of hope rapidly give way to emotions of overpowering despair. Today we generally associate the Victorians with a Christian work ethic,...

GUN CONTROL: What's the answer?

by Kenneth Edward Barnes

Why is there such controversy about gun control? One side says, “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” The other side believes that if no one had guns the world would be a much safer place. Who is right? In this little book of about 22,500-words, I look at the argument and see if either side is right and if not what the answer really is. Why am I qualified to write this book? I grew up in the fifties and sixties when the world was much different. Murder was almost not known in the towns and cities where I lived. Now anytime you turn on the local news, there has been a murder, an attempted murder or a robbery. I have also been an author and outdoor writer for many years. I have also owned and used many different types of firearms and have written about them. What I w...

The Donner Party (Excerpt from Shit Doesn't Just Happen)

by Bob Mayer

"“I wish I could cry, but I cannot. If I could forget the tragedy, perhaps I would know how to cry again.” Mary Graves. Survivor, the ‘Donner Party’

Every man-made disaster and catastrophe has at least six Cascade Events leading up to the final event, the catastrophe according to the Rule of Seven.

This is a quick read of the Cascade Events that led up to Cannibalism while the ‘Donner Party’ emigrated west to California

Bob examines the Rule of Seven, and how human error plays a role in many catastrophes. Nothing happens in isolation or as a result of a single event. Thus, by learning from history, we can gain insight into preventing a similar catastrophe in the future. The key to the Donner Party were the numerous tipping points where the...

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. A wreath is placed on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and followed by a parade of colors. In 2015, the United States and the world will mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. Victory in Europe occurred on May 8, 1945, but the official end of the war came when Japan surrendered to the United States on August 15, 1945. Some students may have family members who remember World War II, but most only know the hardships both at home and in foreign war zones thr...

The Ninth Amendment: Key to Understanding the Bill of Rights

by Duane L. Ostler

The Ninth Amendment is the key to a proper understanding of rights in the United States. The founders created the Ninth Amendment to protect unlisted natural law rights as they were understood in their day. This amendment was never intended to allow future generations to create new rights. Rather, it was to safeguard the morality and natural rights of the founding generation. Unfortunately this understanding has been lost, and modern judges and scholars usually ignore this amendment, or misinterpret it. Indeed, the Supreme Court has rather strangely created new rights under the 14th Amendment's "due process" clause. This book calls for courts to return to the founders' intent regarding the Ninth Amendment. If they do so, confusion over such issues as abortion and gay marriage will simply d...

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...

Fungal Disease in Britain and the United States 1850-2000: Mycoses and Modernity (Science, Technology and Medicine in Modern History)

by A. Homei and M. Worboys

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...

Eiderdown

by Edward Posnett

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 ...

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.
