Broyze By Malcolm Campbell

Took me a year to type the first draft (Christmas of 02' - Christmas of 03'). And then revised and edited (finished that in June of 04'). Anyway, plot synopsis: It is 2170. The world is engulfed is... More > a war that has lasted since 2130. At the front of the war are giant mechanized robots with humans pilots called 'broyzie' (broyze for singular).

Brain Function and Dysfunction By Anand Madhu
Paperback: $7.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Alzheimer's Disease is rapidly increasing in prevalence. This pandemic of the post-industrial age wreaks havoc on the elderly people (some as young as 40), particularly in the richer and more... More > powerful nations. With only a few weak hypotheses, its cause is not understood; all proposed medicines have either failed clinical trials or proven ineffective. In this book, I lay out a new, relatively stronger and more broad-based theory of dementia causation, exploring beyond Matsuyama's 1989 theory that held pervasive Microtubule collapse to be a key characteristic of dementia. In brief: Psychological functions are carried out by neurocircuits containing myriads of Dopaminergic and Norepic systems; due to excessive electrical signalling in "dopamine-heavy" types of brains -- the signal conducting micro-tubules break down, causing the neuronal collapse which characterizes dementia. More the signalling volume, more the stress (either mechanical and/or thermal and/or chemical stress), which proves fatal in the end.< Less
Welcome to the State of Kuwait By Francesca Spencer
eBook (ePub): $3.88
(5 Ratings)
Based on real-life stories from an international school in Kuwait, which chart the survival of teachers from the thrown-in-at-the-deep-end start to the I-can’t-believe-we-made-it finish.... More > Outlandish comedy abounds as the teachers laugh and lose it, through a mine field of barriers to logic, and challenges to plain common sense.The book illuminates the startling excesses of the oil-money rich as they balance a past of poverty with an extreme pot of gold from the end of the rainbow. It shows Kuwait as a microcosm reflecting the more global issues surrounding waste, ecology, using more than we need, and consumerism gone mad. The stories reveal the pros and cons of teaching on the international circuit and how the teachers adapt to an alien land of dust, sexual and racial inequality and an oppressive political regime, both inside and outside school. Resilience, fortitude and a hefty dose of humour gets the teachers through to the end with a cheer and a wave.< Less
Longevity: Myths and Facts By Kaup Shetty
Paperback: $7.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
What affects longevity? What is a good diet? Should we take aspirin? Weight control with a balanced diet, regular exercise, and social interaction in old age extends life span. No medication is... More > shown to extend longevity, but statins in cardiovascular disease (CVD) and metformin in metabolic syndrome may prolong life. Vitamins and antioxidants in pill form seem to increase CVD and cancer as excess may stimulate cells. Our diet has adequate vitamin D and experts advise against over treatment. Fish oil and vitamin D supplements do not prevent CVD and cancer. Indiscriminate cancer screening leads to over diagnosis. Gene-editing and immunotherapy against cancer is a major advancement. Hormonal replacement in elderly shows minimal benefit, but has significant side effects. All proceeds go directly to the American Red Cross. The author, Dr. Kaup Shetty, has written this book based on forty years as a Geriatrician, Internist and Endocrinologist, in addition to teaching and medical research.< Less

Reforming U.S. Export Controls Reforms: Advancing U.S. Army Interests By Richard Weitz et al.
Paperback: $17.50
Prints in 3-5 business days
The U.S. defense export system is in need of significant reform to reduce the impact of its core inefficiencies and weaknesses. The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) create serious... More > problems for the U.S. defense industry and thereby weaken U.S. national security in several important ways. While the ITAR is mostly successful in preventing U.S. arms from being used against the United States and its allies, the manner in which the ITAR regulations are enforced presents excessive barriers to U.S. firms that impede their ability to compete in the global defense market. These firms are important contractors to the U.S. military, and their success enables the United States to maintain a technological and industrial advantage. Additionally, when U.S. allies choose to purchase defense products from ITAR-free firms based outside of the United States, U.S. Army interoperability with foreign forces decreases.< Less

Through the years I noticed as curriculum requirements increased student’s knowledge base decreased. I couldn’t help but wonder how this could be, so I started inquiring. I did not... More > explore the margins of my inquisitiveness though those implementing the rigor, rather, I probed those on the receiving end; the students. That is to say the output and rationale behind it was more important to me than input. The implication of poor educational curriculum has yielded profound disconnects which negatively impact young adults and adults alike. Student’s all over the country are suffering unnecessarily and do not need to. Student Capital addresses emotional intelligence, teacher abuse, excessive testing in schools, lack of career guidance, need for skilled trades, role technology plays, role parents play, increase in low self-esteem, why so many teens are abusing substances, abilities lacking post high school, and finally draws a connection to student struggles in higher education and society.< Less
