Late Victorian London, 1899. Seigfried Wallace, a lowly clerk at insurance company Radcliffe House, is invited by Mr. James Spall, a friend of his from upper management, to The Gaiety, a private gentlemen’s club in Knightsbridge for an evening’s social engagement. With reluctance, Seigfried accepts. Soon after, James disappears and Seigfried sets about trying to correlate the possibility of his friend’s absence, with the club. A second, and somewhat mysterious invite to a Christmas Eve gathering at the club draws Seigfried closer to the reasons for James’ disappearance, as well as engaging him in the club’s most secret purposes-those made privy to only its highest, distinguished members.

A collection of gnomic wisdom from medieval Italy, published for the first time. Rare glimpses of an alternative worldview, the fragments collected in this anthology are based on the notations of the "segretari dell’impiccato", executors of a semi-pagan Italian tradition: When criminals were executed, specially-appointed scribes wrote down the hanged men's last words. In the belief that the dying, on the threshold between this world and the next, were privy to special wisdom, these words were collected in special tomes ("antologie dei morti") and mostly destroyed by edict of pope Leo X.
 
The "antologie" are presented in this bilingual edition (English/Italian) to a world in dire need of a different point of view.

When Helga Haswell becomes pregnant by a married SS officer who abandons her, she finds herself alone and desperate. She is afraid to tell her parents that she is pregnant out of wedlock, so her doctor suggests that Helga check into Heinrich Himmler's home for the Lebensborn. This is a program, he explains, that has been instituted by the Nazi's to create perfect Aryan babies. Since Helga is of pure German blood and the child's father is an SS officer, she will be accepted, the doctor explains. Her child will have a good life because adoption is available only to the finest of Hitler's Elite. Not only this, the doctor says but during her pregnancy, Helga will have the finest food and medical care available. And, instead of a life of shame, she will be honored for her efforts in producing a perfect Aryan child for the new world that Hitler is in the process of creating. Then once the baby is born, the Lebensborn will take the child and assume all future responsibilities releasing Helga to live her life without the burden of a fatherless offspring. In her desperation, all of this sounds perfect to Helga, that is of course before she feels life stir within her womb. However, by the time this occurs it was already too late. She is already living in Steinhoring, home for the Lebensorn, and there is no possibility of turning back. The papers have been signed. She can not escape. Hitler will own her unborn child.

He ruminates about these questions and comes up with entirely different concept of creation of Universe. To explain his concept, he first simplifies the prevalent theories of physics related to Atomic Structure, Gravitation, Behaviour of Light, Theory of Relativity and Creation of the Universe, thereafter, he elucidates on his unique concept of Creation of the Universe from empty space with illustrations and logic, where all matter in the Universe is created from space itself and the fundamental forces subsist due to stress in the 'Lines of Space'

A must-read for anyone interested in the future of the automobile industry, our cities, and the way we live. This book coins the term 'Mobility Revolution' and is a summary of the 'three zeroes' that are defining the future for the automobile industry: Zero Emissions, Zero Accidents and Zero Ownership.
 
Electric, autonomous and shared vehicles are beginning to transform the way we live, work, and move about in our increasingly urban environment. The impact goes well beyond the automotive industry and its suppliers. Public transport, utilities, construction, logistics, financial services companies and even your local café will need to think and operate differently. The magnitude of the change is as significant as Gottlieb Daimler and Henry Ford’s transformation of our cities 130 years ago, when cars replaced horses. Lukas Neckermann describes a revolution that is coming much sooner than we think.
 
Based on countless interviews, 'The Mobility Revolution' is highly current and thoroughly researched, whilst also fun to read. It is an eye-opener to a new world that awaits us.

When the sun belched and the power grid failed, it was only nine meals until the end of the world. Billy “Shep” Shepard always thought the apocalypse would come from an asteroid with a funny name, or a super bug, or a nuclear war, or even Yellowstone blowing its top. It came from none of those things. Instead it came from an angry sun in the form of the biggest Coronal Mass Ejection mankind had ever seen – and it slapped the human race back a century.
 
In these grim times, people kill for food, water and weapons. They scratch out a feeble existence after “The Ejection.” But not Shep. His biggest question each day in his underground bunker is “Cheese Ravioli, Beefaroni or SpaghettiOs?”
 
Shep soon discovers that nothing in this new world is guaranteed. He and Antigone, a girl he rescues, are forced to take a perilous journey across an unyielding landscape toward the one place rumored to be unsullied by the disaster. Along the way they must overcome hunger, disease, desperation and death while running from a man who wants nothing more than vengeance.

My heart is on the right side instead of the left. I was also born with 6 other random congenital heart defects, which have demanded that I undergo dangerous open-heart surgeries since my birth 16 years ago. After my last operation 3 years ago, at barely 14, I was sent away to live so that I would not kill myself. I spent 2 years learning to accept my heart conditions and learning to appreciate my beating heart. The blurry ambulance rides, countless surgeries, metal machines and two years in a Montana therapy school have all contributed to the unique teenager I am today.
