Technology And Scary Technology

picalttag

'Lab 257' by Michael C. Carroll. This eBook presents a compelling circumstantial case that we must be ever mindful of the research being conducted around us. The photographs, government documents, news, and personal accounts of the operations of Plum Island reveal our hubris after WWII in believing we could control Mother Nature and the drastic consequences that hubris can cause. While I am not sure that one can prove the origin of Lyme disease, there are compelling arguments laid out for lab failures, poor maintenance, and potential contamination of the surrounding environment as a result. Pretty Deep Stuff, I know but I recommend this eBook.

'I Liked Your Profile' by Scott Davies. This book was an unexpected surprise! It was so refreshing to find a gay writing that was not all about sex or the usual topics, and actually had a story to go with it. After the end of his long term relationship, which shockingly lasted more than a decade, I Liked Your Profile - Experiences in Gay Online Dating tells the story of a thirty-something man's attempt to find a new relationship using online dating services. For being penned by a non-professional author, I found the book to be generally well written. Get the Coupon Code below to receive a Discount on either of these two eBook Titles.

Lab 257 eBook edition by Carroll, Michael C.
Strictly off limits to the public, Plum Island is home to virginal beaches, cliffs, forests, ponds -- and the deadliest germs that have ever roamed the planet. Lab 257 blows the lid off the stunning true nature and checkered history of Plum Island. It shows that the seemingly bucolic island in the shadow of New York City is a ticking biological time bomb that none of us can safely ignore.

I LIKED YOUR PROFILE (Adobe Reader) eBook edition by Davies, Scott W.

Not only does I Liked Your Profile reveal many of the dysfunctions in the world of gay online dating, but also takes an unapologetic look at the gay community as a whole.

Study Where To Study.... uh?

'Students' Guide to Colleges:'by Jordan Goldman, Colleen Buyers. I think it's really indicative of what makes this book great. There's just tons of new ideas in it, things you won't find in any other guide, and you can really tell the makers put a lot of time and thought into figure out how to make this whole college search process easier. It is just as (if not more) informative as the other guides - but then it's also fun to read, and tells you what the other guides don't, like "What would a prospective student not see on a campus tour", and "what wouldn't an admissions officer tell a prospective college student." I can't recommend this book enough!! I have a ton of friends and relatives who I have recommended this book to and they thank me all the time! That's my kind of eBook.

'MCAT Physics' by Garrett Biehle. The MCAT Physics Book is a wonderful tool in helping prospective medical students achieve high scores on the Physical Sciences section of the MCAT. The thoroughness of the topics covered and the quality of the questions make this book very valuable. Buy this book early and give yourself time to work through it -- you will end up feeling very comfortable in the physical sciences test. I wish the author would write a similar book for every other MCAT subject, but I guess we can't get everything that we want!

Students' Guide to Colleges: The Definitive Guide to America's Top 100 Schools Written by the Real Experts--The Students Who Attend Them (Microsoft Re by Goldman, Jordan,, Buyers, Colleen,
College guides are a must for any teenager trying to choose the right school. Unfortunately, most guidebooks are vague, boring tomes written by administrators and journalists, instead of the real experts—the college students that actually go there. Students' Guide to Colleges is different. Entirely student-written and edited, this invaluable resource cuts through the cant with comprehensive listings of the vital statistics and requirements for America's top 100 schools accompanied by three totally honest, fresh, fun-to-read descriptions penned by attending undergrads from different walks of life. Want to know how big classes really are? How rigorous the academics get?

Math You Can REALLY Use

picalttag

'Everyday Math Demystified' I haven't studied math in many years, and I wanted to freshen up my skills. I was never a math wiz, but I am certainly competent at the basics. When you get beyond the basics, my brain starts hurting a bit. This eBook made my brain hurt. The Title is deceiving. "This is everyday math?!" The information in this book is presented so badly that you pretty much need to be a mathematician to read it (in which case you probably do not need this book). I rarely write negative things in my blogs but this has to be said! With that said I am going to recommend 'Math You Can Really Use - Every Day.' By David Alan Herzog. This is a handy little book on the basics of rounding, rational, irrational, prime numbers and equivalent fractions. Some important geometry is explained for the layperson. The book is an excellent purchase for the layperson or student of business math or elementary algebra. Be sure to check below for the coupon code for a discount on these two eBooks.

Math You Can Really Use--Every Day (Adobe Reader) by Herzog, David Alan

With a comfortable, easygoing approach, it: Covers math you'll need for balancing your checkbook, choosing or managing credit cards, comparing options for mortgages, insurance, and investments, and more Includes the basics on fractions, decimals, percentages, measurements, and geometric math Clues you in on simple shortcuts Includes examples plus pop quizzes with answers to help you solidify your understanding Features tear-out guides you can take with you for tipping and converting measurements Want to know how much 20% off is in dollars and cents?

Can You Hear Me Now?

picalttag

Who knew that cell phones could be spiritual? I will admit that I have an emotional relationship with my iphone but spiritual?

The iPhone Book is both beautiful and expertly written -- the language is clear, concise, and entertaining. I personally find the iPhone to be the easiest cell phone I have ever used however; even so, I picked up several good tips and tricks from this book, and recommend it to all iPhone owners who want to get the most out of their new toy.

In Cell Phone Spirituality, the experience of transcendence within technology is put into the practical terms of daily life. This eBook is a cleverly woven reference to cell phone communication that makes Father Goodrich's book so relevant to the challenges of living the Christian Life in the 21st Century. I liked being able to relate some of my situations to things in this book. A must read for people who are busy, overwhelmed and always on the run.

The Iphone Book: How to Do the Things You Want to Do with Your Iphone (Adobe Reader) eBook edition by Kelby, Scott, White, Terry
This is the eBook version of the printed book.There are basically two types of iPhone books out there: (1) The "Tell-me-all-about-it" kind, which includes in-depth discussions on everything from wireless network protocols to advanced compression codes. (2) Then there's this book, which instead is a "show-me-how-to-do-it" book, that skips all the confusing techno-jargon and just tells you, in plain simple English, exactly how to use the iPhone features you want to use most. The iPhone Book is from Scott Kelby, the award-winning author of the smash bestseller, The iPod Book, who takes that same highly-acclaimed, casual, straight-to-the-point concept and layout and brings it to learning Apple's amazing iPhone. Scott teams up once again with gadget guru, and leading iPhone authority, Terry White to put together a book that is an awful lot like the iPhone itself-simple to use and fun to learn. The book's layout is brilliant, with each page covering just one single topic, so finding the information you need is quick and easy, with a large full-color photo on each page so you can see exactly how it works.

God, Math & Crime

picalttag

Are Science and God mutually exclusive? Here's a way to find out. Or you can wrap you're mind around how advanced Mathematics is used to solve crime. In either case both of these books are sure to give you something to think about.

Spiritual Brain, The eBook edition by Beauregard, Mario
Do religious experiences come from God, or are they merely the random firing of neurons in the brain? Drawing on his own research with Carmelite nuns, neuroscientist Mario Beauregard shows that genuine, life-changing spiritual events can be documented. He offers compelling evidence that religious experiences have a nonmaterial origin, making a convincing case for what many in scientific fields are loath to consider—that it is God who creates our spiritual experiences, not the brain.

FEMALE BRAIN eBook edition
by Brizendine, Louann Md
CHAPTER ONE
The Birth of the Female Brain

Leila was a busy little bee, flitting around the playground, connecting with the other children whether or not she knew them. On the verge of speaking in two- and three-word phrases, she mostly used her contagious smile and emphatic nods of her head to communicate, and communicate she did. So did the other little girls. "Dolly," said one. "Shopping," said another. There was a pint-size community forming, abuzz with chatter, games, and imaginary families.

Leila was always happy to see her cousin Joseph when he joined her on the playground, but her joy never lasted long. Joseph grabbed the blocks she and her friends were using to make a house. He wanted to build a rocket, and build it by himself. His pals would wreck anything that Leila and her friends had created. The boys pushed the girls around, refused to take turns, and would ignore a girl's request to stop or give the toy back. By the end of the morning, Leila had retreated to the other end of the play area with the girls. They wanted to play house quietly together.

Common sense tells us that boys and girls behave differently. We see it every day at home, on the playground, and in classrooms. But what the culture hasn't told us is that the brain dictates these divergent behaviors. The impulses of children are so innate that they kick in even if we adults try to nudge them in another direction. One of my patients gave her three-and-a-half-year-old daughter many unisex toys, including a bright red fire truck instead of a doll. She walked into her daughter's room one afternoon to find her cuddling the truck in a baby blanket, rocking it back and forth saying, "Don't worry, little truckie, everything will be all right."

This isn't socialization. This little girl didn't cuddle her "truckie" because her environment molded her unisex brain. There is no unisex brain. She was born with a female brain, which came complete with its own impulses. Girls arrive already wired as girls, and boys arrive already wired as boys. Their brains are different by the time they're born, and their brains are what drive their impulses, values, and their very reality.

The brain shapes the way we see, hear, smell, and taste. Nerves run from our sense organs directly to the brain, and the brain does all the interpreting. A good conk on the head in the right place can mean that you won't be able to smell or taste. But the brain does more than that. It profoundly affects how we conceptualize the world--whether we think a person is good or bad, if we like the weather today or it makes us unhappy, or whether we're inclined to take care of the day's business. You don't have to be a neuroscientist to know this. If you're feeling a little down and have a nice glass of wine or a lovely piece of chocolate, your attitude can shift. A gray, cloudy day can turn bright, or irritation with a loved one can evaporate because of the way the chemicals in those substances affect the brain. Your immediate reality can change in an instant.

If chemicals acting on the brain can create different realities, what happens when two brains have different structures? There's no question that their realities will be different. Brain damage, strokes, prefrontal lobotomies, and head injuries can change what's important to a person. They can even change one's personality from aggressive to meek or from kind
