Season Of Sorrows: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder And The Combat Veteran

by Sere Wilde

Ever wonder what you loved one really thinks and feels about his combat related experiences ?Especially those events in a war zone that he will not open up and talk about … to you or anybody else?From the Preface of Season of Sorrows: Post Traumatic Disorder In The Combat Veteran reads in part “Season of Sorrows makes me smile, laugh, hurt and cry. You are painting a picture of war that few people have or will ever experience. It is important that you do this. I hope that these writings find their way to a larger audience than those of us privileged few who are experiencing them. War, to this generation, is a fictional activity, confined to movies and video games. Many of my students, when I was teaching high school, were intrigued by Vietnam and could only see what they thought w...

Ellington and Armstrong: The Lives and Careers of America’s Most Famous Jazz Performers

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures*Includes online resources and a bibliography for further reading*Includes a table of contentsLouis Armstrong once claimed that “Every time I close my eyes blowing that trumpet of mine—I look right in the heart of good old New Orleans…It has given me something to live for.” This statement conjures an image which most anyone familiar with jazz music can recall: Armstrong clutching his trumpet forcefully, his eyes closed in a manner that distances him from his physical surroundings in favor of a perfect harmony between the man and his instrument. As Armstrong alludes to in this remark, this connection also speaks to the enduring influence of his New Orleans background, which informed his musical style and indeed continued to live on through his music. To be sure, wh...

Trade War: Future War Looming Between The US And China And The Effects On The Modern World (Trade War,Future War,United States, China,Russia,Donald Trump,Modern ... World, Politics,Vladimir Putin,Xi J

by Aryeh Ksah

Dawn Of The World War III?!!!Throughout history, trade wars have been common, but with most instances being between China and US. Up to date, the US has launched the famous “Section 301 investigations” since 1991 against China, specifically probing into the areas of unfair trade barriers, intellectual property rights and clean energy. During these investigations (in the past), both countries have naturally turned to tariffs as their means of retaliation. Nonetheless, these conflicts ended up being resolved through diplomatic means (such as using WTO’s dispute settlement mechanism to settle a compromise).Before the most recent round of investigation that triggered the current wave of eruptions, the last investigation was done in September 2010. The Obama administration began an invest...

There Were No Cats in America: "An American Tail" Enters Trump’s America

by Adam M. DeSimone

Using the 1986 animated film “An American Tail” as a framing device, this work explores the immigrant experience of émigrés who lived in the United States during the Gilded Age. While the film itself celebrates the arrival of the furry, lovable, Mousekewitz family to the U.S., this essay comments on the evolution of U.S. immigration policy from the late 19th to early 21st centuries, with special attention paid to the National Origins Act, the Chinese Exclusion Act, and to President Trump’s 2017 “Muslim bans.” Major push and pull factors associated with immigration are examined as well; a comparison between the socioeconomic conditions of the Gilded Age and modern era follow. In this essay, the author argues that the Trump administration’s views on immigration are similar to t...

In Colder Blood: True Story of the Walker Family Murder as depicted in Truman Capote’s, In Cold Blood (True Crime Murder & Mayhem)

by JT Hunter

WARNING: CRIME SCENE PHOTOS ARE GRAPHICTwo families, mysteriously murdered under similar circumstances, just a month apart. One was memorialized in Truman Capote’s classic novel, In Cold Blood. The other was all but forgotten. Dick Hickock and Perry Smith confessed to the first: the November 15, 1959 murder of a family of four in Holcomb, Kansas. Despite remarkable coincidences between the two crimes, they denied committing the second: the December 19 murder of a family of four in Osprey, Florida. Over half a century later, a determined Florida detective undertakes exceptional efforts to try to bring closure to the long-cold case. ...

The Falklands My Experience

by J Massey

The idea of this book is to show The Falkland Island Battle Sites in SUNLIGHT.
THE 5000-plus British Troops would only have seen snow, rain, gale force winds very little daylight and extreme cold.
The Island is bleak in the winter but being lucky to return in a Spring and again in an Autumn I saw the island in a different light.
I hope that those who fought in the war there in 82 and have not been lucky enough to return in peace time can enjoy my pictures.
The Falklands has changed and will never be the same as before 1982.
The population has more than doubled and the way of life changed with it.
The one thing that the Island will always have, is the memory that in 1982 the whole life of the Island was defended by so many worthy men and women and remains...

Conspiracy Theories: Missing Gold Reserves? The Fort Knox Vault

by Cheryl Leonard

Fort Knox is the site of the US Bullion Depository, located in Northern Kentucky, between Louisville and Elizabethtown.

Over the years, speculation and debate, as well as myths and legends, have sparked controversy on the amount of gold housed at Fort Knox, or if there is any gold at all. This book is an overview into the origins of Fort Knox, its security perimeters, gold conspiracy theories, and the Federal Reserve’s connection to the available Fort Knox audits.

The Catcher in the Rye Enigma: J.D. Salinger's Mind Control Triggering Device or a Coincidental Literary Obsession of Criminals? (The Underground Knowledge Series Book 4)

by James Morcan

The idea that assassination codes are buried deep in Salinger’s book is one of the oldest conspiracy theories around and has often been explored over the decades. In fact, many readers familiar with Catcher conspiracies may think all the theories have already been proven to be false and there’s no need to drag them up yet again.

However, given what the authors have unearthed in their research for this book – especially the unique revelations on the history of mind control, the effectiveness of subliminal messages, the latest scientific studies on the brain, the Americanized Nazis in Project Paperclip and the recently declassified documents on real-life Manchurian Candidates – they believe some of the theories swirling about Salinger’s classic deserve another look....

Yet decades later, when Paine returned to the American shores that he helped liberate, he was met with a bitter homecoming. Paine had arrived right on the heels of his association with bloody upheavals in revolutionary France and the publication of his unapologetically anti-Christian tracts, which did go over well in an America swept by the Second Great Awakening. Both of these aspects of his intellectual life made him an insufferabl...
