Ready for a killer road trip?
Evian Wavily will do just about anything to escape her predictable life and domineering grandmother -- even sign up for a cross-country scavenger hunt.

But all's forgiven -- if not forgotten -- they race across Kenya.
The plan is simple. Too bad nothing else is. Evian and Rita are plagued with luck that redefines bad. Flat tires and a faulty GPS are only the beginning in a race that includes pirates, poachers, explosive secrets, and a ticking clock. What could possibly go wrong?
Pretty much everything.

Welcome to The Hotel Wavily where the guests are wicked, the owners are witches, and the service is to kill for.

Alpha Khaos wants few things in life - a powerful pack and a beautiful woman in his bed. Murdering his parents was just a bonus.
Until he meets Violet, his stunning, virginal mate. All he has to do is convince her to stay with him, to love him, to see past his acts of brutality. He easily dominates her in the bedroom, but will her heart cave as easily?
Khaos knows he can't change. As much as his mate pleads with him, he has to take his vengeance. Those that should suffer will do so, and he will be the one to serve justice.

He knows he's torturing her but she belongs to him, and he won't let her go.
Being with her is thrilling.
Because Khaos isn't the only one with an axe to grind, and he has unwittingly started a chain of events that will leave them on their knees - broken and fighting to the death.

Explore the Secret Realities of a Compelling Ancient Legend.
The creation stories and wisdom traditions of civilizations worldwide relate that their progenitors came from the stars, the sky, or the heavens. Native Americans recount that their antecedents were the "Sky People" and "Star Beings." The builders of Teotihuacan describe their gods as having descended from the heavens. Egyptian texts speak of their "bringers of knowledge" coming from Sahu and Sopdit (Orion and Sirius) in a "cosmic egg radiating colored light." The pre-Tibetan Zhang Zhung, the Maya, the pre-Incans, the Sumerians, and so many others, all express essentially the same account in diverse symbolic languages -- their ancestors came from the stars, bringing advanced knowledge and the gift of civilization. These cultures were greatly separated both geographically and chronologically, yet their creation stories are strikingly similar. What could explain this?

In these introductory lectures on karma, as Steiner begins by explaining that, although it is not present in exoteric Christianity, in the inner circles of esoteric Christianity, karma was continuously taught. It was important that each of us go through at least one incarnation without awareness of reincarnation and karma, but as this is accomplished, the time will come when reincarnation and karma must be widely taught again.
The second lecture is devoted mostly to the karma of the temperaments. Good habits in one incarnation yield good health in the next, and vice versa. Materialism will have dire effects including universal, congenital nervousness if it is allowed to continue. This is one of the main reasons why the wise guides of humanity decided to begin revealing spiritual wisdom through theosophy.
The third lecture makes it clear that we can speak of karma only since the Luciferic intervention. Isn't the law of karma terrible in its inevitability? No, like a businessman, we can ...

Emma is sometimes a burglar for ex-spouses who got a raw deal in the divorce. She's also a psychology student -- at least partly because she doesn't understand herself. She's sort of a nerdy secret warrior fighting injustice. This is a comforting thought when she looks in the mirror or spends another night alone. Then through one of the burglaries, she gets a laptop with incriminating info on it, which brings her into the world of political corruption and dangerous thugs. It also brings her into the condo of a sexy lawyer who seems to see the secret warrior in her. Or is he only using her for his own political gain?

'It is a magical symbol, a square divided by lines from corner to corner, which connect five spots like the five faces on a die. It is the means whereby a mage controls his colours and uses them to perform magic.'
On the raash planet Vard, a baby girl is born - half raash on the outside, half human on the inside.
The baby shows early signs of having colours, the controls of magic present in mages throughout the dimensions.
However, this is dangerous, because the girl, Mordant, is a slave. And slaves aren't supposed to have magic. Mordant quickly learns to hide her colours and hide herself, blending in with the other slaves so as not to draw attention to herself.
But as she grows, so do her powers, and she is rescued by those who still live in Free Vard, away from the corrupt raash overlords. There she is trained in magic, combat, and spy craft.
After her training is complete, she will be sent to Earth, with a message: The raash are coming for the Tools of Power. Beware.

After eight years finally a new poetry book from award-winning artist Chris Wanten, teacher for Creative Writing, member of the International Writers and Artists Association (IAW) and founder of "poets online", one of the first global poetry networks on the internet. The new poems are artistic descriptions of significant little moments, insignificant bigger emotions, fears and feelings. The poetry is uniquely hidden in floating words that -lined up like pearls on a string- allow you to gain an insight into a world of love, passion and affection from the beginning of a relationship to its end. To read it means to catch the moment only to feel it slip trough your fingers like desert sand.

It was the partners on the pearl lugger Lucinda who found the lone aircraft shot down by the Zeros, and the diamonds.

This is the second book published by Dwayne A. Gray, who is also the author of, "Mirror of Poems: Reflections". This book is what he calls a (Callaloo) of poetry as is said in the Caribbean, or (Mixture) of poetry that expresses many different emotions and experiences. However, unlike the first book, the poems in this book are less organized or assigned to certain areas, hence the term (Callaloo), which mean, mixed up. Instead, they are spread sporadically throughout. Find yourself in this kaleidoscope of colorful poems that almost anyone can relate to, where the only colors of interest are the ones of the heart; the emotional colors that everyone possess regardless of Cast or Creed. We share different outer shades but inside our colors are the same, surfacing at different moments. Find your colors daily as they surface in "Poeticolors" and enjoy.

You'll read detailed accounts of working fires, rescues, arson, car fires, and more. "These narratives, then, are both chronicle and an historical document, because the equipment we used is now in museums, and I don't exaggerate. When I joined Engine 6 in New London, they responded on a 1954 Seagrave (the one you see on the cover); the only place you'll see one now is in a fire museum. But that's fine by me, because that means I rode one of the finest pumpers ever built. It means I fought fires during the last of the leather lung days -- one of the reasons I ended up with cancer.

New Zealand (M?ori: Aotearoa ) is an island nation in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The country geographically comprises two main landmasses -- the North Island (or Te Ika-a-M?ui), and the South Island (or Te Waipounamu) -- and around 600 smaller islands. New Zealand is situated some 1,500 kilometres (900 mi) east of Australia across the Tasman Sea and roughly 1,000 kilometres (600 mi) south of the Pacific island areas of New Caledonia, Fiji, and Tonga. Because of its remoteness, it was one of the last lands to be settled by humans. During its long period of isolation, New Zealand developed a distinct biodiversity of animal, fungal and plant life. The country's varied topography and its sharp mountain peaks, such as the Southern Alps, owe much to the tectonic uplift of land and volcanic eruptions. New Zealand's capital city is Wellington, while its most populous city is ...

Help Your Students Develop Critical Skills
Through Field Studies
Field studies are considered by many to be the most powerful tool to teach the Critical Skills. A field study is a project conducted by a team of students to address a problem or issue in the "real world" under faculty supervision. They provide rigorous and learning rich experiences where students can practice and master their skills while working productively with an educational partner.
Given the opportunity, virtually any student can participate and contribute as a field study team member. Field studies offer an educational experience quite different from the traditional classroom - they are, in a sense, the Socratic Method in action. It is the process that is important - not the content. Experiencing the process of a field study is the ultimate goal for students at all levels of secondary and higher education. While field studies benefit all participating students, they provide an unparalleled experience for the ...
