Have you ever asked yourself questions such as these: Is human existence ultimately an endless race? Do we exist in perpetual competition with everyone else in the global economy? Is this the highest vision of humanity that we can attain? If you are one person in seven billion, can you make any difference at all, or are you so insignificant that your contribution won't count? Is it fundamental human nature to consume natural resources endlessly? Is our species destined to use up this planet eventually? Will the world in 100 years be better or worse than the world today? Most people are aware of the world's dwindling supplies of fossil fuels, fresh water, arable land, and other natural resources. Many people believe that climate change will radically alter our world for the worse. We all understand that we will need to change the way we live, sooner or later, if we are to inhabit this planet indefinitely. The only question is, when? Will our generation change our behavior, or will our children or grandchildren have to deal with the mess we leave them? Will it be too late by then? Okay, all right, I know what you're thinking - blah blah blah, this guy's trying to give me a giant guilt trip, and I just don't have time for that crap. Who cares about a hundred years from now? I'll probably be dead by then. And anyways, I'm only one person. How much difference can I possibly make? Well, my friend, you're absolutely right. No one can make you care about something. No one can force you to read a book. But before you go, let me ask you a simple question: When was the last time someone told you that you were capable of great things? Yes, you, a human being, you singular, improbable spark of life, the only force powerful enough to change the world. What do you want to do with the priceless gift of being born human? This book is a hint of all that is possible when you redeem this priceless gift. It explains a set of ideas through a series of conversations between two characters. David Turner is an advertising copywriter with a sensitive only child named Claire. When Claire begins to learn about all the predicted impacts of climate change, she withdraws into a hopeless depression. Desperate to find a way to draw her out of her shell, David finds a mysterious woman on the Internet named Cora, and the two of them begin a series of discussions about how the world has come to be the way it is, and what one can do about it. Cora begins by explaining how we modern human beings now measure our lives and our worth in primarily economic terms. The problem is that these metrics fail to provide the deep fulfillment that we all need as spiritual beings. Furthermore, this worldview also untethers us from the life-sustaining matrix of the natural world, putting us on a path to depleting many nature resources. The rest of the book discusses what a single individual can do in the face of this unsustainable mainstream worldview, by introducing ways for people to reconnect with nature and with each other. While you might not find action or adventure in this book, you might just possibly find inspiration and hope. Robert F. Kennedy once said: "Some men see things as they are and say, why; I dream things that never were and say, why not." This book is a dream of things that never were.

Time Never Was Where the Human Race Were Not By: Heyward C. Sanders This book will help you focus more on life and the things that matter. This will help you see what society you are functioning in – fiction or nonfiction. Each community has both, but some are higher than the other. That’s because some have a higher profit rate than other communities because they’re being more brainwashed by the entertainment world. You will read things about history, religion, criminal law, business law, lifestyles, politics, and how all of it works together in trying to take control of our minds. See, our minds are easily exploited based on who is exploiting us. Some might say they have control over their minds, but how could that be when you live in a society that controls your every move? One might say they have an understanding of what is being done around them and they try to move with the flow that would be more beneficial for them. But that is still called control: which is a good thing because if everybody saw the things in front of them, it could be easier to change in a positive way. Heyward C. Sanders believes this book will help you have a better understanding of what we need to stay focus. Thanks, Peace and Blessing.

Μια τετραμελής ομάδα –μια ψυχολόγος, μια βιολόγος, μια ανθρωπολόγος και μια χωρομέτρης– στέλνεται να εξερευνήσει την αποκλεισμένη, μυστηριώδη Περιοχή Χ (είναι η δωδέκατη αποστολή που αναλαμβάνει τούτη την εξερεύνηση). Εκεί, μες στην παρθένα ερημιά, όπου δεν απομένουν παρά μόνο τα χαλάσματα ενός εγκαταλειμμένου χωριού, τα τέσσερα μέλη βρίσκουν έναν μυστηριώδη πύργο βυθισμένο στη γη, που στους τοίχους του ξετυλίγεται μια παράξενη γραφή φτιαγμένη από μύκητες, και στην άλλη άκρη της Περιοχής Χ ένα φάρο με ίχνη, μέσα, ενός τρομερού μακελειού. Πατώντας στέρεα στη λογοτεχνία του Χ. Φ. Λάβκραφτ και του Τζ. Γκ. Μπάλαρντ, μα και στο Σολάρις, ίσως, του Στάνισλαβ Λεμ, και στην αίσθηση που δίνει μια ταινία όπως το Στάλκερ του Αντρέι Ταρκόφσκι, ο Τζεφ Βάντερμιερ στον Αφανισμό (βραβευμένο με το Βραβείο Nebula το 2014), το πρώτο μυθιστόρημα της Τριλογίας της Νότιας Ζώνης, πλάθει μια εφιαλτική και συνάμα μαγευτική μα εντελώς μοναδική ιστορία επιστημονικής φαντασίας, ένα από εκείνα τα σπάνια βιβλία που εντέλει, και παρά τις όποιες ομοιότητες και αναφορές, στέκουν μόνα τους, δίχως στην πραγματικότητα να έχουν όμοιό τους.

The Summer That Never Was is the thirteenth novel in Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks series, following on from Aftermath. A skeleton has been unearthed. Soon the body is identified, and the horrific discovery hits the headlines. Fourteen-year-old Graham Marshall went missing during his paper round in 1965. The police found no trace of him. His disappearance left his family shattered, and his best friend, Alan Banks, full of guilt. That friend has now become Chief Inspector Alan Banks, and he is determined to bring justice for Graham. But he soon realises that in this case, the boundary between victim and perpetrator, between law-guardian and law-breaker, is becoming more and more blurred.
