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.

The Fatima Secret
Author: Michael Hesemann
The truth about the vatican's most impenetrable secret, hidden for over eighty years! *On May 13, 1917, three young shepherds witness a vision of the Virgin Mary and hear the Holy Mother reveal three prophecies... *Elements of the first two prophecies have already come true: the end of World War I, the rise of Russia as a superpower, and the beginning of World War II... *The third secret was revealed in the year 2000, its details still shrouded in secrecy and controversy. What is the Vatican trying to hide? The Lady of Fátima left a final prophecy so powerful that no pope in over eighty years had dared reveal it. Why? The third secret is contained on a page of parchment written by the last surviving witness to the miracle...and hand delivered to the Pope. Even now, after the Vatican has released their version of the contents of the third secret, intense debate rages as to whether the Church has revealed the truth. Here, for the first time, is a complete inquiry into the mystery of Fátima: what the three shepherds really witnessed, the astonishing turn of their lives, the unfolding of the prophecies, and how the Fátima Secret has dominated Pope John Paul's reign and changed world history. Was the Fátima prophecy a warning to the Pope...or a vision so dire it must be suppressed at any cost? From the Paperback edition.
A systematic critique of the notion that natural science is the sovereign domain of truth, Critique of Scientific Reason uses an extensive and detailed investigation of physics—and in particular of Einstein's theory of relativity—to argue that the positivistic notion of rationality is not only wrongheaded but false. Kurt Hübner contends that positivism ignores both the historical dimension of science and the basic structures common to scientific theory, myth, and so-called subjective symbolic systems. Moreover, Hübner argues, positivism has led in our time to a widespread disillusionment with science and technology.
Taken from The Common Reader, these essays take the form of a series of reflections on diverse literary topics, brought to life by Woolf’s extensive knowledge, lively wit, and piercing insight. "For it is vain and foolish to talk of knowing Greek, since in our ignorance we should be at the bottom of any class of schoolboys, since we do not know how the words sounded, or where precisely we ought to laugh, or how the actors acted, and between this foreign people and ourselves there is not only difference of race and tongue but a tremendous breach of tradition."

The 5 Biological Laws
Author: Andrea Taddei
The 5 Biological Laws discovered by Dr. Hamer, they represent a new key of reading and understanding of all the defined processes called pathological. This book, in particular, deals in a very in-depth way the conflicts regarding the inherent conflicts of devaluation of the bones, the muscles and the articulations. A somatic map of reference, with which it is possible to go back in a precise and verifiable way to the bony and muscular pains, is illustrated. Furthermore, they are explained from the point of view of the 5 Biological Laws, most common and diffuse pathologies regarding the osteo-muscular system like: the arthritis, the arthrosis, the osteoporosis, the scoliosis, the herniated disc, the fibromyalgia, the rheumatoid arthritis and the valgus big toe. The book is composed by 2 sections: a first one, from the first to the tenth chapter, illustrates and explains the 5 biological laws, their meaning and what they involve; while from the eleventh to fifteenth chapter the conflicts, concerning the tissues resulted from the mesoderm, bones, muscles and articulations, are dealt. The book does not want to supply only a “prescription pad” of the map of the muscular, bony and articular pains, but it wants to make the reader understand the reason why, how, when and for how long the pains of the muscle-skeletal apparatus last in relation to the personal background. www.5biologicallaws.com

Now with the zombie apocalypse upon them even those innocuous, daily irritations quickly become dramatic struggles for personal identity, family security, and straight up survival. Welcome to normal life in Z-Burbia!
