She is a wizard. He is a normal human. She knows that these sweet moments will soon be just a dream.
Iman has respected and obeyed her grandfather Charles and his teachings all through her young life. For this reason, Charles trusts her to always be responsible and keep the wizard code of conduct close to her heart, especially the ruling whereby a wizard can never fall in love with an ordinary human.

Hannah's having a bad day. Her friends have ditched her, and she's stuck going on a tour of Hearst Castle. And she ends up seated next to a muscle-bound, dangerous-looking man dressed all in black, with pearly-white skin and silver eyes.
Heriot is an assassin known for his one hundred percent kill rate... and his grim disposition. He's all work and no fun, according to his brother and partner, Jadzion. And he's all business as he tracks down his latest target on some filthy backwater planet called Earth. He's got two diurnal cycles to take out his target, so there's not a lot of time for shenanigans.
He didn't expect to find his true mate during the middle of this hit. He didn't expect her to be a stunning human female who could gentle his stern demands. And he didn't expect to be reduced to a raging, rutting beast on this mission. Can he convince his innocent mate to return with him to his home planet before his time is up, or will he be forced to steal her?
Have you ever wondered how evil began? Or why God gave angels the free will to reject Him? This prequel to the Angelic Wars series, Into the Mind of Lucifer, is a small window into Rick E. Norris's creation of interactive musical novels where characters sing when the reader activates a link. Into the Mind of Lucifer is the background story of why Lucifer rebelled against God. This prequel is the start of the epic story of the internal struggles and external battles among the angels for the control of Heaven. This introduction, like the series, is unlike any other action-adventure fantasy because its setting is mostly in Heaven and guided by footnoted Biblical passages.
Lucifer, the most revered of all angels in Heaven, is sent on the first mission to earth -- to serve God's pinnacle of creation, humankind. He is the first angel to travel into the material world and the first to realize that God has been "holding back" against his angels -- the power of a free will. While on earth, ...

Faust is Goethe's magnum opus and considered by many to be one of the greatest works of German literature. The story takes place in multiple settings, the first of which is heaven.

Recently angels have made a remarkable comeback in the popular imagination; their real heyday, however, was the Middle Ages. From the great shrines dedicated to Michael the Archangel at Mont-St-Michel and Monte Garano to the elaborate metaphysical speculations of the great thirteenth-century scholastics, angels dominated the physical, temporal, and intellectual landscape of the medieval West.
This book offers a full-scale study of angels and angelology in the Middle Ages. Seeking to discover how and why angels became so important in medieval society, David Keck considers a wide range of fascinating questions such as: Why do angels appear on baptismal fonts? How and why did angels become normative for certain members of the church? How did they become a required course of study? Did popular beliefs about angels diverge from the angelologies of the theologians? Why did some heretics claim to derive their authority from heavenly spirits?

The story of the United States Army is always growing and changing. Historians constantly seek to reinterpret the past while accumulating new facts as America's Army continues to be challenged on new foreign battlefields. Nor does the Army, as an institution, ever stand still. It necessarily changes its organization, materiel, doctrine, and composition to cope with an ever-changing world of current conflict and potential danger. American Military History provides a comprehensive but brief account of Army's past. The history of an active organization tends to expand rapidly as the organization grows larger and more complex. The first volume covers the Army's history from its birth in 1775 to the eve of World War I. The second volume of this edition takes up that story and extends it into the twenty-first century and the early years of the war on terrorism.

The three learned so much from those unbelievable yet unforgettable experiences - read this to see if it could change you as well.

New York. Hello everyone, my name is Jack and I'm a three and a half year old Jack Russell terrier. I'm a small dog, less than a foot tall at the withers. I'm in great shape in my 11 lb and my coat is smooth as well as waterproof. I'm mostly white with brown biscuit spots on the muzzle, on the left side of the neck, on the belly, on the butt and on the tail. My owners called me Jack, not because I come from the Jack Russell breed, but to pay homage to a crazy protagonist of one of their favorite cult films: "Big trouble in Little China".
It must be said that they didn't have much choice, since I didn't respond at all to the name given me at birth.
You must know that the owner of the breeder I came from, on the suburbs of New York, is a nice eccentric man with a manic fixation with the Arthurian cycles. At each litter was born an Arthur, a Merlin, my poor brother is called Excalibur, while my name was Camelot.
Maybe it would not have been such a horrible name under ...
As the engines started, accompanied by the fasten seat belt sign, Deb felt her skin crawl with immobilizing fear. She was in a life or death situation: either get off the plane or die in her brand-new Gucci stilettos. Deb couldn't get on a plane for love that day, but she could do it twenty years later for money. Money was worth dying for.
Fast forward twenty years with sisters Deb and Becky, waiting to board a Boeing 737 to Louisiana at Reagan International airport with Deb in a pair of four-inch diamante Gucci stilettos and a Dunkin Donuts coffee, click-clacking her way through the aluminum floor, chatting enthusiastically with every passenger in sight and making her sister Becky her personal caddie.

The Doctrine and Covenants of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is a part of the open scriptural canon of several denominations of the Latter Day Saint movement. The book contains revelations on numerous topics, most of which were dictated by the movement's founder Joseph Smith. The Doctrine and Covenants was first published as a later version of the Book of Commandments. This earlier book contained 65 early revelations to church leaders, including Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery, and before it was released it was destroyed by a mob in Missouri. The committee of Presiding Elders, led by Smith, began to review and revise numerous revelations for inclusion in the new work which contained a total of 103 revelations. These 103 revelations contain items or principles for the regulation of the church, as taken from the revelations which have been given since its organization, as well as from former ones.

The Articles of Faith: A Series of Lectures on the Principal Doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is book by James E. Talmage about doctrines of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). The name of the book is taken from the LDS Church's "Articles of Faith", an 1842 creed written by Joseph Smith. Talmage decided to use Smith's Articles of Faith as an outline of his work. He first delivered the material that he would organize into a book in a series of lectures delivered in 1893 at Latter-day Saints' University in Salt Lake City, Utah, which Talmage was the president of at the time. Articles of Faith is a Mormon classic and, for many years, it was among the few non-scriptural works that full-time LDS Church missionaries were asked to study.

"EVERYTHING IS ENERGY": THE MYSTERIOUS REASONS WHY ONLY 0.0001% OF HUMANS REALLY UNDERSTAND THIS PRINCIPLE, AND HOW APPLYING IT EVERY DAY IN YOUR LIFE WILL LET YOU GET EVERYTHING YOU DESIRE...
In today's society, it is increasingly on the agenda to reason by stereotypes. The continuous distractions and surplus of information are leading us to an increasingly elusive and superficial perception of the world. Only a few discerning people are engaged in a careful and in-depth analysis of reality.
"Things are not always as they seem", says the famous Gibran, and quantum physics unquestionably sanctions the truth of this famous thought.
Einstein, Planck, Heisenberg and Bohr (just to mention the most famous) were courageous visionaries, careful observers who did not stop at appearances and what the world of conventions proposed to them as absolute realities. This value was reciprocated with a revolutionary conception of life, which in some cases, for the weakest of hearts, led to ...

Don't let your emotions get the best of you -- allow logic to guide you in finding happiness and becoming successful.
Do you see the world around you? Rather than being stressed and anxiety-ridden, you can take a deep breath and let life be.
Do you say the words, "like water off a duck's back," when things seem as though they are spinning out of control?
It can be hard when the decisions we make can sometimes seem like the wrong response. How wrong is wrong, and how right is right? Is there a right way to live when so often there is an inner monologue that contradicts what we feel?
Sometimes, the decisions we are forced to make may feel as though they should be crystal clear. Yet, the reality is no choice is ever without debate. Even after we make a decision, we question whether or not it was the right one to make.

This open access book approaches the anxieties inherent in food consumption and production in Vietnam. The country's rapid and recent economic integration into global agro-food systems and consumer markets spurred a new quality of food safety concerns, health issues and distrust in food distribution networks that have become increasingly obscured. This edited volume further puts the eating body centre stage by following how gendered body norms, food taboos, power structures and social differentiation shape people's ambivalent relations with food. It uncovers Vietnam's trajectories of agricultural modernisation against which consumers and producers manoeuvre amongst food self-sufficiency, security and abundance.
Food Anxiety in Globalising Vietnam is explicitly about 'dangerous' food - regarding its materiality and meaning. It provides social science perspectives on anxieties related to food and surrounding discourses that travel between the local and the global, the individual and ...

The Ancient Near East is considered the cradle of civilization. Mesopotamia is a historical region of Western Asia situated within the Tigris-Euphrates river system. Babylonia was an Amorite state in lower Mesopotamia where an empire was created out of the territories of the former kingdoms of Sumer and Akkad. Assyria was a region on the Upper Tigris whose kings controlled a large kingdom at three different times in history, covering most of the Middle East. Ancient Egypt was a civilization of ancient North Africa, concentrated along the lower reaches of the Nile River. Around the 8th century BC the torch of civilization was taken from the Near East to ancient Greece and Rome. Both Greek and Roman societies flourished and wielded great influence throughout much of Europe, Northern Africa, and Western Asia. The rise of civilization corresponded with the institutional sponsorship of belief in gods, supernatural forces and the afterlife. Many civilizations adopted their own form of ...

What's more, with a large number of white Americans have decided in favor of this black president, so is white individuals being detestable...

In 1855, Walt Whitman published -- at his own expense -- the first edition of Leaves of Grass, a visionary volume of twelve poems. Showing the influence of a uniquely American form of mysticism known as Transcendentalism, which eschewed the general society and culture of the time, the writing is distinguished by an explosively innovative free verse style and previously unmentionable subject matter. Exalting nature, celebrating the human body, and praising the senses and sexual love, the monumental work was condemned as "immoral." Whitman continued evolving Leaves of Grass despite the controversy, growing his influential work decades after its first appearance by adding new poems with each new printing.
This edition presents the original twelve poems from Whitman's premier 1855 publication of Leaves of Grass. Included are some of the greatest poems of modern times: "Song of Myself," "I Sing the Body Electric," and "There Was a Child Went Forth," works that continue to upset ...

The Lectures on Faith is a set of seven lectures on the doctrine and theology of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, first published as the doctrine portion of the 1835 edition of the canonical Doctrine and Covenants. The lectures were originally presented by Joseph Smith to a group of elders in a course known as the "School of the Prophets."
Lecture 1: Faith gives rise to all human endeavors in both worldly and spiritual matters, and is a source of power, both in man and in God.
The human family's knowledge of God began with God's interaction with Adam before The Fall, which knowledge was retained after The Fall, and which knowledge has been transmitted via human testimony among Adam's descendants.
Lecture 3: In addition to a belief in God, a correct knowledge of God's character and attributes as revealed in scripture is necessary for the exercise of faith leading to life and salvation.
Lecture 4: From scripture, one can learn that God possesses the ...
DIARY OF A FIRE: The Station Fire, the largest fire in the history of Los Angeles County, threatened historic Mount Wilson Observatory from 26 August until 25 September 2009. Initial predictions were that the fire would sweep the Observatory grounds, obliterating the site where Edwin Hubble revealed a vast and expanding Universe in the 1920s.
From 29 August 2009 and into February 2010, Mount Wilson Observatory Director Hal McAlister kept an on-line blog describing the effort to save the observatory by hundreds of firefighters and a core group of Mount Wilson staff. His blog documented a roller coaster ride of alternating despair and optimism during the fire crisis followed by a long aftermath of mud slides and road closures that affected Mount Wilson's operations for more than a year after the fire was started by an as yet unknown arsonist.
The blog, which received more than 320,000 hits during the fire, is being published in this book as a diary with entries arranged in ...
The emergence of Zika virus in 2015 challenged conventional ideas of mosquito-borne diseases, tested the resilience of health systems and embedded itself within local sociocultural worlds, with major implications for environmental, sexual, reproductive and paediatric health. This book explores this complex viral epidemic and situates it within its broader social, epidemiological and historical context in Latin America and the Caribbean. The chapters include a diverse set of case studies from scholars and health practitioners working across the region, from Brazil, Venezuela, Ecuador, Mexico, Colombia, the United States and Haiti. The book explores how mosquito-borne disease epidemics (not only Zika but also chikungunya, dengue and malaria) intersect with social change and health governance. By doing so, the authors reflect on the ways in which situated knowledge and social science approaches can contribute to more effective health policy and practice for mosquito-borne disease threats ...

Our Daily Moments is about moments and experiences that occur in our everyday lives and how they affect us. A short but poignant experience can happen very quickly. These experiences can change us in an instant. We humans are emotional beings. Even the most stable and disciplined among us can be knocked off-balance. Our emotions and attitudes can be altered in just seconds. We are all susceptible to the many life experiences that enter our day. We are affected, consciously or subconsciously. Every moment of time is part of our life. All that we call good or bad can be used by God to teach us and to know him more. God wastes nothing.
