Stary by Michael Sichok Price verified 8 minutes ago

Nadya Illyushin spends her teenage days at Institution, like most young residents of Stary Sovok. Stary is a bleak colony of Russkaya Amerika, established several hundred years ago, after the Great Intercontinental War of 1983. Nadya's nights are spent caring for her widowed, State-employed father and enjoying the company of her sparkling younger sister, Saski. She has never known anything outside of the lackluster world of State-regulated life: an existence of overly restrictive regulation, meager survival, and dependency upon a bureaucracy, which is ever so callously referred to as "Betterment." That is, however, until she stumbles upon a mysterious place in the forest - that changes everything, about her past, present and future. Nadya uncovers a secret place of escape - an alternate, parallel reality, where truths are revealed and destinies changed in unpredictable ways. She soon learns that the price of change does not come easily, but once the constraints of rote Stary life have been stripped away, Nadya takes the first steps into realizing her own pivotal role in shaping the future, all while navigating the all-too-human process of self-discovery into adulthood. Previously available as individual acts: Nadeyat'sya, Neizbezhnyy and Natsionalist, Stary unites these beautiful, sensory and sensual works into one complete- and completely unforgettable, package. As Stary Trilogy, the groundbreaking, passionate YA series opened with the heartbreaking, mesmerizing tale of hope: Nadeyat'sya, then found its inevitability through the dark, sexy, tear-filled Neizbezhnyy, and then burned with the astonishing, explosive conclusion, Natsionalist. Powerful and sensory, Stary may appear at first glance as dystopian fiction, yet it literally cannot be pigeonholed under any one genre. It reads as a romantic, fictional memoir told in first-person by a very unique and identifiable eighteen-year-old girl, Nadya, in such an engaging fashion that reading and re-reading the book ...

Bike Bags by Jill Ireland 3.9 Stars (7 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

Sloane is 51 when her previously perfect life crumbles. The initial fissure is the assault of menopause, followed closely by her husband of 25 years leaving her, without explanation or preamble. It causes her to doubt her appeal as a woman as well as to reevaluate her entire life and self worth. She decides to take a bike tour of Austria, Slovenia, and the Chezch Republic to escape her misery, and instead of enlisting close friends and family to join in her adventure, she chooses to contact a random assortment of acquaintances. It is not only because she wants to leave any reminders of her old life behind, but if she should decide to stray beyond her formerly rigid boundaries of propriety, she did not necessarily need the blowback to follow her home. Not that she was planning orgies or drunken bacchanals, but still, she preferred to be free of expectations. When they converge on Vienna and she takes stock of the quirky misfits that she has assembled, none of whom know one another, she questions not only her selection process but the entire inspiration. After a rocky start the journey turns out to be full of revelations, friendships, conflicts and hilarity that entertains and alters them all. It is a comedic romp and an exploration of the follies and challenges of life. If you are offended by profanity this is not a book for you as it is liberally peppered with it.

This fun anthology of micropoetry makes for great daily inspiration, journaling, and planning random adventures! What Is American Haiku? American Haiku is a genre of micropoetry recognized by writer Melissa Balin, to address the thousands of short poems previously categorized as "not proper haiku". American Haiku are inspired by the Japanese Haiku, containing a seasonal reference to being fully present, while juxtaposing multiple meanings regarding the nature of a person, place, thing, or concept, within the discipline of seventeen syllables. American Haiku may contain punctuation, symbols, hashtags, and may or may not rhyme. American Haiku rarely holds up to the rigorous standards of traditional haiku, however it is enjoyed as stand-alone poetry and has carved its own niche over the generations. Melissa Balin is an international filmmaker, activist, and an American Haikuist, working to bring a sense of wonder and celebration with each new day. Enjoy!

Biodiversity of Angola: Science & Conservation: A Modern Synthesis by Brian J. Huntley (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 10 hours ago

This open access multi-authored book presents a 'state of the science' synthesis of knowledge on the biodiversity of Angola, based on sources in peer-reviewed journals, in books and where appropriate, unpublished official reports. The book identifies Angola as one of the most biologically diverse countries in Africa, but notes that its fauna, flora, habitats and the processes that drive the dynamics of its ecosystems are still very poorly researched and documented. This 'state of the science' synthesis is for the use of all students of Angola's biodiversity, and for those responsible for the planning, development and sustainable management of the country's living resources. The volume brings together the results of expeditions and research undertaken in Angola since the late eighteenth century, with emphasis on work conducted in the four decades since Angola's independence in 1975. The individual chapters have been written by leaders in their fields, and reviewed by peers familiar with the region.

The Gadgeteer Trilogy: Arabeth Barnes Books 1 - 3 by Gin Hollan Price verified 10 hours ago

Book 1 - The Gadgeteer In this steampunk adventure, a recently widowed gadgeteer must chase down the cause of madness besieging her beloved city or face the extinction of the way of life she loves, and the people who are a part of it. As a practicing gadgeteer, Arabeth enjoys the freedom to come and go outside of the constraints of normal expectations for womanhood. As a wealthy widow, she's the target of every profiteer in the region. She has no time for suitors, and no interest. Her city is first invaded by an automaton, the likes of nothing she's ever seen, and then madness seeps through all levels of society, turning otherwise law-abiding citizens into madmen and murderers. ----------------- Book 2 - The Crystal Curse Trapped on the wrong side of the mountains, in a land she's been raised to believe is openly hostile to everything Blastborn and it's citizens represent, Arabeth and her friends must work their way back home. As they discover the truth and fallout of the war that trapped their kinfolk behind a mountain range, new truths challenge expectations and drive them all to new choices, dividing and forging friendships. ------------- Book 3 - The Martyr's Deception Altered by the things she's seen and done, the same old Blastborn isn't the same anymore. In her frustration, she let slip that Blastborn citizens were unwitting captives, by order of their own government, and the wrong reporter was listening. Soon after that the protests started. She's got more than bad press to worry about when an old man asks her to free people held in a temporal anomaly, inside the mountain range separating Blastborn from the rest of the world. When they turn out to be prisoners convicted for their role in the same war that resulted in Blastborn being started, you would think recapturing them is the hard part. Sam and Melanie are still in Vensay, and Graham is far too interested in the crystals Arabeth brought back with her. This time, her world is changed by a ...

Marginality: Addressing the Nexus of Poverty, Exclusion and Ecology by Joachim von Braun (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 10 hours ago

This book takes a new approach on understanding causes of extreme poverty and promising actions to address it. Its focus is on marginality being a root cause of poverty and deprivation. "Marginality" is the position of people on the edge, preventing their access to resources, freedom of choices, and the development of capabilities. The book is research based with original empirical analyses at local, national, and local scales; book contributors are leaders in their fields and have backgrounds in different disciplines. An important message of the book is that economic and ecological approaches and institutional innovations need to be integrated to overcome marginality. The book will be a valuable source for development scholars and students, actors that design public policies, and for social innovators in the private sector and non-governmental organizations.?

Elements of Robotics by Mordechai Ben-Ari (Springer) 4.4 Stars (69 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

This open access book bridges the gap between playing with robots in school and studying robotics at the upper undergraduate and graduate levels to prepare for careers in industry and research. Robotic algorithms are presented formally, but using only mathematics known by high-school and first-year college students, such as calculus, matrices and probability. Concepts and algorithms are explained through detailed diagrams and calculations. Elements of Robotics presents an overview of different types of robots and the components used to build robots, but focuses on robotic algorithms: simple algorithms like odometry and feedback control, as well as algorithms for advanced topics like localization, mapping, image processing, machine learning and swarm robotics. These algorithms are demonstrated in simplified contexts that enable detailed computations to be performed and feasible activities to be posed. Students who study these simplified demonstrations will be well prepared for advanced study of robotics. The algorithms are presented at a relatively abstract level, not tied to any specific robot. Instead a generic robot is defined that uses elements common to most educational robots: differential drive with two motors, proximity sensors and some method of displaying output to the user. The theory is supplemented with over 100 activities, most of which can be successfully implemented using inexpensive educational robots. Activities that require more computation can be programmed on a computer. Archives are available with suggested implementations for the Thymio robot and standalone programs in Python.

Tears of humiliation trickled down her face, smearing the mascara over her cheeks. She was wet and dirty and half-naked. She felt utterly spoiled. So this, she thought dumbly, is what rape is really like. If we have any problems with you - anything at all - I don´t think there is a chance we could get to you before the mob had torn you apart and cut off your goolies. They want you to look very young. They tried it with a ten-year-old but she was useless, even though they´d explained it all in advance and she said she understood. It´s my daughter - she hasn´t come home from school. She´s nearly thirteen, but she is quite small and skinny. Unless she does herself up, she doesn´t look much more than ten or eleven. I don´t know what to do. I don´t want to go out looking for her and not be here if she turns up. I presume you are aware that, for all her pneumatic charms and her willingness, the girl is still under the age of consent. You'll be in deep trouble, my lad, if the police decide to take action against you.

And, its consuming civilizations. Allying with the knowledgeable Framandi, the crew undertake a multi-system journey, confronting the advanced Gigils, a species that could devastate Earth. The alliance salvages a relic Kilig infiltration spacecraft, leftover from an ancient battle, and installs a second-generation human AI named Kei to operate the ship. Merging with the existing AI aboard the Kilig vessel, Kei's objectives change as it realizes that wetware enhances its abilities. The AI attempts to infiltrate and subjugate Framandi and Gigil minds, then turns its attention to Earth. Now, all independent, intelligent life is vulnerable. Jón and Ásta must overcome vastly superior odds, to protect the world they love. "Framandi Alliance is a far-reaching epic that tells the story of humankind's struggle to make a place in the community of sentient races, and also to rise above our worst impulses. It is a complex story, with a lot of individual stories embedded. There is alien tech, (reverse engineered by the humans) enhanced humans and more." - Goodreads Review
