A Survivor Remembers the Holocaust: The Amazing True Story of Leon Sperling

by Marc Garrett

Disclaimer. This is not a book, but rather a 10 page narrative, told to me by a very special man, of perhaps the most riveting, emotional, and courageous account of escaping certain death from the hands of a highly civilized and advanced race of people inexhaustibly determined to exterminate him, 14 year old boy, and his entire race. It is placed here at the Amazon minimum which I wish was zero, simply to tell his story, and remind future generations of the humanity and inhumanity we as a people are capable of, and the hope that each day, we choose the former. Please download and read, and if it doesn't leave you a better person, a changed person, with a need to share it with a loved one, please simply hit refund....

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...

Malamud and Spanier at Oregon State

by Barry Roberts Greer

Academic literary study has been severed for a long time now from literature, which consequently separated literature from reality, reduced literature to an object of examination that taught nothing about life. Malamud and Spanier at Oregon State reconnects literature and life and does so with layer upon layer of irony, but not deliberate irony. The irony just happens to be present at Oregon State, a college when Bernard Malamud, literary giant and comp dog, fled back east just before A New Life saw print and embarrassed the cow college that changed its name to university as if doing so would diminish the absurdity of having writers generate the stuff the literary (alleged) scholars made a living reading. So the OSU Department of English was the Department of Reading where writers were s...

A House Divided: This is why Donald Trump won the election

by Kenneth Edward Barnes

People not only in America, but also all over the world were stunned when Donald Trump won the presidential election. Newscasters scratched their heads, others cried, and many more were in total shock. How could this have happened? Why did it happen? I have the answer, but many will not want to hear it. Abraham Lincoln had the answer for his generation, but many in his day did not want to hear him either. The reason Donald Trump won the presidential election is because America is divided. Some believe it has not been this divided since the Civil War. There are so many issues that polarize us and put people at odds with one another. There is also animosity on both sides of nearly every issue. This is why Donald Trump won. I know because I had not voted for over forty years. I did n...

Queens of the Viking Age: The Oseberg Ship and the Oseberg Grave - Archeology (Omega Viking Series Book 3)

by Omega Viking Series

The Oseberg ship burial is a Viking Age burial mound containing a double female inhumation, which is located in the Oslofjord area in Norway. Through dendrochronological analysis it has been possible to determine the year in which the timbers of the grave chamber were felled, and the burial has consequently been dated to AD834. A popular study of Oseberg has been that of focusing on the women buried in the mound in order to give them an identity. At first Snorri Sturluson’s Ynglingasaga was used and it was proposed that the burial was that of Queen Åsa or of Queen Alvhild, who are the only two queens mentioned in the saga.There are many questions and mysteries about Oseberg that have not yet been answered. We still do not know for sure who was buried in the mound, what position this per...

Democracy's Children: Intellectuals and the Rise of Cultural Politics

How do American intellectuals try to achieve their political and social goals? By what means do they articulate their hopes for change? John McGowan seeks to identify the goals and strategies of contemporary humanistic intellectuals who strive to shape the politics and culture of their time.
