All the Presidents' Memories: How they Reconstruct the Past, Manage the Present and Shape the Future; Volume I

by Henry Roth

The memories described in this book reflect not only how eleven American Presidents remembered what happened to them in their youth, but also a kind of psychological shorthand of their beliefs, attitudes, cognitive biases and foibles. A negative memory may have provided guidance in situations the President viewed as dangerous, whereas a positive memory may have provided guidance in situations viewed as promising. By examining the early memories of the Presidents, it is possible to discover how, for example: Abraham Lincoln's amusing memory of a boyhood caper provided an unusual perspective on his character and his lasting appeal as a great storyteller;Ulysses S. Grant’s memory of a business transaction revealed a hidden vulnerability; Teddy Roosevelt's memory of a fantastic childhood adv...

by Osmanagich Ph.D., Sam

The surface of the Earth over the last two million years provides evidence of the occurrence of eighteen ice ages each lasting about a hundred thousand years.

We are rapidly approaching another ice age. Climate changes will intensify, cold regions will become even colder, warm regions even warmer. Another cycle will come to an end. The dominant civilization will come to an end and it will take many generations before another cycle starts over ...

1915: A Tale of Two Nations: Canada, U.S. and World War I Part 2

by Melina Druga

“My colleagues and I are deeply lament the long list of casualties,” Prime Minister Sir Robert Borden said, “and send our profound sympathy to every home which is plunged into sadness and sorrow by the tidings that reach us from hour to hour.”Spring 1915 is consumed with two traumatic events. Canada endures a trial by fire at the Second Battle of Ypres. While the Canadians are ultimately successful – to the pride of their countrymen – the battle marks the first widespread use of chlorine gas. The gas moved across the ground like a yellow-green fog, damaged the mucus membranes and caused asphyxiation.Meanwhile, Americans are rocked by the torpedoing of the Lusitania, an ocean liner that – like the Titanic – was thought to be unsinkable. The sinking cost the lives of nea...

(This is how the book begins.)Barack Obama was responsible for three acts which together make him by far the most incompetent and malfeasant president ever. It is a tossup which label goes first. Wall Street bankers engineered perhaps the greatest larceny in history nearly causing a collapse of the world economy. Obama prosecuted no one. Instead he invited many of the perpetrators to the White House. Iran had aggravated two wars in which in the end the numbers of dead may reach a million. Obama gave Iran $150 billion to make more wars -- after Syria and Yemen, Israel is number three on their list -- despite the fact that a third of this money had been marked by judges for American victims of multiple Iranian terrorist attacks over a long period including 9/11. Then there is the Uranium One...

Happily, many of their original drawings still exist.This series of the work of the Civil War combat artists will show you scenes, places and fighting men that you have never seen before -- largely because many of the works in these volumes have remained unpublished even after more than 150 years.In this volume, you will meet Alfred Waud and Edwin Forbes, the...
