For those of us old enough to remember that peace is to be guarded and cherished, we need to tell children of the lessons of the past. We need to teach them that tolerance of diversity and individuality are seeds to be sown that will grow into harmony between nations. It is also urgent that we teach them to treasure the Earth's resources and to manage them wisely in order to avoid an environmental crisis for themselves and for generations to come. This bedtime story hopes to explain that the natural beauty of creation lies in the incredible diversity of life forms; that this diversity is to be appreciated in the environment and ourselves as a gift. The author tries to impart that we need to strive to preserve and not destroy what has been given to us. The story also helps shine a glimmer of hope to show children that their creativity can be used to find solutions to the most daunting of problems, as long as they have the patience to work towards solutions instead of reacting thoughtlessly to the symptoms of these problems. They also need to remember that problems are more easily resolved with the unity of the people involved. They need to be taught that to make friends of foes is the road to peace and better days ahead. Please read this book to a child you love and encourage them to avoid violence, so that they can have the childhood they deserve.

When you reach the twilight of your existence, look back on your life and realize you have accomplished all your desires; you have to share your fulfillment with the world, your children, your family, your dearest friends, and everyone who contributed to your well-being. If the saying Practice makes perfect goes, I hope it applies to me. This is my second attempt at writing a book, a sequel to my first one. I do not consider myself a literary writer, far from it. As a matter of fact, in my school years, not only couldnt I put two and two together, but composition was my second weakest subject. As English is not my mother language, its a double challenge. I have many times used dictionaries to prove my point. At an early age, playing with my dolls, I would tell them all kinds of stories, so you can say that I am more of a storyteller. This is my fairy tale as close to the truth as can be told however, to protect the anonymity of the characters, their names have been changed. Enjoy!

La biografía más completa jamás escrita sobre uno de los cineastas más admirados e influyentes de los últimos cincuenta años: Georges Lucas. El 25 de mayo de 1977 se estrenó en apenas cuarenta salas estadounidenses un film con todos los números para fracasar. Sin embargo, pronto mereció grandiosos titulares hasta convertirse en un fenómeno de taquilla que cambió de un plumazo la manera de producir, anunciar y rentabilizar películas. La cinta se titulaba Star Wars y su creador era un tal George Lucas. El cineasta aún volvería a dar el golpe con la saga de Indiana Jones y, no contento con ello, llegó a forjar pequeños imperios: Lucasfilm, THX, Industrial Light & Magic, Pixar. En esta biografía, tanto colegas como competidores de Lucas ofrecen una mirada exhaustiva sobre la vida y los métodos de trabajo de un hombre que transformó la manera de hacer cine y de verlo. Reseñas: «Todo en la trayectoria de Lucas en el cine, desde sus inicios hasta su actual estatus de leyenda, todo está aquí. Los retratos que ofrecen colegas, rivales, mentores y amigos son brutalmente honestos. Una biografía indispensable.» Rolling Stone «Un libro adictivo. Jones retrata a la perfección la presión asfixiante del creador, los encontronazos con los estudios y el baile constante con el fracaso que precedieron a obras maestras como American Graffiti o Star Wars.» BBC «Una biografía clara y veraz, donde hasta el más mínimo detalle sorprende.» The New York Times «Como si de un aguerrido arqueólogo se tratara, Jones sale victorioso del reto, llevando bajo el brazo un relato formidablemente completo de la vida y obra de George Lucas.» Washington Post «Con su prosa hipnótica y sus investigaciones en profundidad, este libro gustará hasta a los seguidores más exigentes de Lucas.» Boston Globe «Incluso los años de formación del director están retratados con maestría. También las reflexiones e interioridades de cómo funciona la industria del cine (y cómo la cambió Lucas) se nos aparecen como una aventura trepidante.» Chicago Tribune

First Snow White encounters one of the Little People, then one of the Even Smaller People, and finally one of the Truly Infinitesimal People. And no matter how diligently she searches, the only dwarves she can find are collapsed stars! Clearly, she's not at home in her well-known Brothers Grimm fairy tale, but instead in a strange new landscape that features quantum behavior, the wavelike properties of particles, and the Uncertainty Principle. She (and we) must have entered, in short, one of the worlds created by Robert Gilmore, physicist and fabulist.

Three brilliant scientists harness the power to fold time and visit the past and future like a common tourist. One scientist formulates a tour of Biblical events because he believes in God, but the tour is reluctantly and accidentally traveled by a scientist who does not. What will unbelieving eyes see, and how will they interpret the most significant supernatural events of all time? The tour embraces world history from the beginning of creation and into the future, where Biblical prophecy tells us that dangerous people will control the whole world, countless millions of people will evaporate, and society will plunge into darkness. What if a time traveler visited just two years into the future after the Biblical Prophetic clock has already started ticking? And then catapulted into the past, where Earth is like another planet entirely? What kind of world, and what kind of tribulation would he find? And as an unbeliever, how would he respond to it? Light deals with the issues of Biblical prophecy, recent young-earth creation, a literal and startling twist on how things were, and how things will be. Set aside the notions of being left behind, and embrace the idea of being brought along, in the circuits of Earth’s end-to-end timeline. Enter a future we’d rather forget, and a history that nobody remembers.

This book examines the nexus between exploring and tourism and argues that exploration travel – based heavily on explorer narratives and the promises of personal challenges and change – is a major trend in future tourism. In particular, it analyses how romanticised myths of explorers form a foundation for how modern day tourists view travel and themselves. Its scope ranges from the 'Golden Age' of imperial explorers in the 19th and early 20th centuries, through the growth of adventure and extreme tourism, to possible future trends including space travel. The volume should appeal to researchers and students across a variety of disciplines, including tourism studies, sociology, geography and history.

Aboard the science ship Intrepid II, Captain Spock, commanding some of his old crewmates, must face the loss of his closest friend. But while still in mourning for one friend, he must come to the aid of another. Decades ago, Spock had teamed up with David Rabin, the young son of a Starfleet Captain, to fight an attempted coup on Vulcan that would have turned the planet's people away from the path of logic. Now a Starfleet officer, Captain David Rabin has been assigned to a harsh desert world much like Vulcan, where the Federation is determined to protect the lives of the inhabitants. But Rabin's efforts are being sabotaged and he has asked for Spock's help against the unknown forces that may well destroy the society he had come to save. While reflecting on his youthful adventure with David Rabin, Spock joins with Rabin to face and enemy out of their past and confront deadly Romulan treachery. In the process Spock will decide if the path of his life now leads back toward the family traditions he had once sought to escape.
