Albert Einstein wasn't afraid to think for himself. And as a young man, he had little choice--after barely passing his final exams in college, he couldn't find a job in physics and had to take a job reviewing inventors' patent applications at an office in Bern, Switzerland. But in his free time he wrote papers with fantastical theories. That light is both a wave and a particle. That matter can become energy, and energy can become matter. That space can "bend" and time is relative. Other scientists ignored him at first, but in time would realize he was absolutely correct about nearly everything, and it turned the world of physics upside down. Einstein and the Time Machine is a fast-paced, entertaining biography of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth century. In addition to its lively story, it includes 190 illustrations, a glossary, and sidebars covering related topics, from time travel to the Nobel Prize to the origin of the universe--the Big Bang.

Dutch Island is an 81-acre island situated at the southern end of the West Passage to Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island.

This volume is the first pictorial history illustrating the military development and facilities of Fort Greble on Dutch Island, spanning the period from the Civil War to World War II. Readers will step back in time and wander through the early earthworks and different incarnations of Fort Greble, stroll along the pristine parade ground before it was covered in briar and bramble, gaze upon the huge coastal artillery guns pointing toward the sea, and watch uniformed soldiers performing their duties on this fortified island.
Davisville and the Seabees
Author: Walter K. Schroder, Gloria A. Emma
Publisher: Arcadia Publishing
The U.S. Naval Construction Battalion Center at Davisville, Rhode Island, is first remembered as the original "Home of the Atlantic Seabees." During World War II, 100 battalions as well as dozens of other U.S. Navy "Builder-Fighter" units were formed, outfitted, trained, and prepared for overseas deployment. Here, in the first photographic history of the base, is the story of the men and women who came to Davisville and their legacy of superb accomplishments in the service of their country. Established on February 27, 1942, the base was designated to manufacture and ship overseas materials and equipment and to outfit and embark construction battalions and other naval units. Between 1942 and 1994, when the base was closed, the Seabees participated in every war involving the United States. The Quonset Hut and the Davisville Pontoons were both developed at the Davisville Seabee Center. The base has schooled and trained thousands of officers and tens of thousands of Seabees.
