Not the End of the World

'Don't worry,' St John had told him, in the back of his white stretch Caddy. 'I've no
intention of putting you or your colleagues in an uncomfortable situation.' Mitch
said St John spoke to you like he was reading from a prepared statement.

Death threats rock a Hollywood film festival: “Imagine Day of the Locust updated and rewritten by Carl Hiaasen” (Kirkus Reviews). After a family tragedy, LAPD cop Larry Freeman gets back to work with what he thinks is a simple assignment: Keep a rabid group of right-wing evangelical protestors as far away as possible from a celluloid celebration of ex—and very X—adult film actors. But when an oceanic research vessel off the West Coast is discovered with its crew vanished, Freeman has no idea how dirty this twisty game in the City of Angels is going to get. The players include the voluptuous daughter of a conservative US senator, a Glaswegian photographer with a mysterious agenda, a yacht-load of Hollywood producers, a throng of faded stars feeling more exposed than ever, and a band of self-righteous extremists bent on a glittering apocalypse. Set on the near side of the millennium, at a point when the world is about to spin out of control, this witty thriller delivers “a crazy off-the-wall roller coaster of a book that throws in not only the kitchen sink but the dresser, the best china, and the cook herself” (The Irish Times). “A wild, no-punches-pulled ride.” —The Philadelphia Weekly

Hyperkinetic and relentlessly inventive, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World is Haruki Murakami’s deep dive into the very nature of consciousness. Across two parallel narratives, Murakami draws readers into a mind-bending universe in which Lauren Bacall, Bob Dylan, a split-brained data processor, a deranged scientist, his shockingly undemure granddaughter, and various thugs, librarians, and subterranean monsters collide to dazzling effect. What emerges is a novel that is at once hilariously funny and a deeply serious meditation on the nature and uses of the mind.

This is the true story of the History of the Demolition of the 2 Cooper River bridges . The Grace was complete in August,1929 and the Pearman was completed in 1966. They allowed traffic to flow between Charleston, South Carolina and Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. The Grace was built in 18 months, was a toll bridge and shortly after it was completed the country went into a deep depression. The Silas N. Pearman bridge was built to ease the high traffic demands that came with the growth of the area. It was a 3 lane bridge, where the Grace was 2 very narrow lanes. They were being replaced by a new higher span bridge named The Arthur Ravenel Bridge. A cable stay suspension bridge that is much higher for ships to travel underneath it better.

What is the subject of theology? These fourteen essays argue against the view that "religion" is the name of one particular territory that we may consider or ignore if we feel so inclined. That "religion" is a subject quite different from others, such as politics, art, science, law and economics, is peculiar to modern Western culture. But Professor Lash states that the "modern" world is ending, and in the consequent confusion is the possibility of discovering new forms of ancient wisdom that the "modern" world obscured from view. Part I explores the dialogue between Christianity and Hinduism. Those essays in Part II (six were published between 1988 and 1994, and five are unpublished) consider relations between theology and science, the secularity of Western culture and questions of Christian hope or eschatology.

This book tells the novel true stories concerning highly talented civilian scientists in some unusual places and situations during World War II. The purpose of this book is to present an almost forgotten history of secret war research in universities. The focus is on the narrow subject of chemical warfare research and on a small number of individuals, but with in-depth study of these individuals and what they did. Mostly graduate students and young instructors, they were working under the direction of professors at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and the University of California (Berkeley). Action took place in California, Florida and the jungles of Panama. This history touches on the work of four senior Nobel Prize winners and eight junior, future Nobel Prize winners at Caltech and Berkeley.

Tsvetaeva's Orphic Journeys in the Worlds of the Word explores the rich theme of the myth of Orpheus as master narrative for poetic inspiration and creative survival in the life and work of Marina Tsvetaeva. Olga Peters Hasty establishes the basic themes of the Orphic Complex--the poet's longing to mediate between the embodied physical world and an "elsewhere," the poet's inability to do so, the primacy of the voice over the visual world, the insistence on concrete imagery, the costs of the poet's gift--and orders her arguments in the tragic shape of the Orpheus myth as it worked itself out organically in Tsvetaeva's own life. Hasty's delineates the connections between the Orpheus myth and other key mythological and literary figures in the poet's life--including Alexander Blok, Anna Akhmatova, Alexander Pushkin, and Rainer Maria Rilke--to make an important and original critical contribution.
