Cozen Protocol Lemon Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Mitchell Nevin is a master at developing characters, readers will empathize with, even the bad guys. Nothing is as it seems-flip the pages to find out, who's good, who's bad, who's dead, and who survives. The Cozen Protocol is an intricately woven story, perfect for any crime lover. Take a ride in the front seat with Milwaukee's finest and view the world as you have never seen it before; by walking-a-mile in the shoes of everyday street cops as they carefully balance the ebb-and-flow of justice and politics. Faced with inept leadership, outlaw bikers, gangs, and crooked cops, each day is another unique challenge. Down, but not out, the fine men and women of law enforcement combine their talents and work together to "foil" the bad guys and live to fight crime for another day. Editorial Reviews: I've been telling friends and family about this book. My mother is a fan of murder and detective stories. I recommended she go through the glossary of terms because Nevin relies heavily on MPD lingo. --Eric Donaldson, 20-year Milwaukee Police Department veteran I thought it [The Cozen Protocol] was a great read, a little W.E.B. Griffin (although in the Badge of Honor series all the cops are good guys; in Milwaukee apparently, not so much), a little Wambaugh. -- Steve Prestegard, Editor of the Platteville Journal For those interested in knowing what it is like to wear a big-city police department's badge, The Cozen Protocol is a must read. The dialog between characters illustrates that Mitchell Nevin has significant knowledge of organized crime, interrogation techniques, and criminal investigative analysis. -- Steve Spingola, Author and Lieutenant of Detectives (Retired) The Cozen Protocol is a great read and brought back some fond memories of stuff that was going on throughout my years on the job, as the author spun a great mystery with similarities to real incidents. Kudos to Mitchell Nevin for a job well done. --Detective Larry Powalisz, Milwaukee Police Department (Retired) Mitchell Nevin did an absolutely fantastic job of research in preparation for writing this book. --Captain Glenn Frankovis, Milwaukee Police Department (Retired)

Dark Wing Fantastic Books

Mankind faces extinction at alien hands. The only thing standing in their way? THE DARK WING The birdlike zor are just one of the alien races that humanity encounters when it travels to the stars, and from the very first meeting it has been all-out war. For many years the conflicts have been sporadic, usually ending with an Earth concession and a treaty. But the zor do not respect mankind and have no intention of honoring the agreements. When the zor decide to mount a surprise attack against human colonies, the normally self-absorbed government of Earth realizes that something must be done before it is too late. A controversial scholar by the name of Ivan Hector Charles Marais, a former admiral, is brought in to take command of the Space Navy and defeat the enemy. Marais has spent his entire life studying the zor and claims to have a plan to deal with them once and for all. With so few options remaining, Marais is put in charge of the battlefleet. Earth just wants the threat neutralized and would be happy with a stalemate, but Marais has other ideas. He presents himself as the Dark Wing of zor mythology, destined to exterminate the zor, and unwilling to accept a return to the status quo. EDITORIAL REVIEWS: "Walter H. Hunt is the new master of military SF. A rollicking, compelling, wonderful debut

Examination of Joseph Galloway, Esq. Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Examination of Joseph Galloway, Esq.: By a Committee of the House of Commons The Council of the Seventy-six Society thought it advisable to present this reprint of this well-known though almost inaccessible pamphlet. The character and talents of Mr. Galloway, the opportunities which he possessed of obtaining information, the facts stated by him and the weight attached to them by writers in his own and later days, have made this examination a document of some historical importance. A few notes, designated by brackets, have been added by me. I had intended to append others, but I refrained when I reflected that many if not all of the members of the Society were quite as well or better acquainted than myself with this period of our history. Those which are given are chiefly on MS. authority; and I here return my thanks to those gentlemen, who have favored me by access to their papers, particularly Mr. Thompson Westcott. The book cited as Pennsylvania Letters is No. 2396 D, Loganian Library. It is greatly to be regretted that we have no full and truthful history of the loyalists, of their numbers, of the measures which they devised, promoted or prevented, of the motives which actuated them, and consequent upon this the classes into which they were divided, of the influence which they exercised and its effects. Numerous isolated facts or notices arc to be found in works relating to the Revolution, and Mr. Sabine's Loyalists and Curwen's Journal (edited by Mr. Ward), are valuable so far as they go. But a work embracing the entire subject is yet to be written, as part of the materials for which this reprint of Mr, Galloway's examination may not be without value.

Becoming a Teaching Assistant Paul Chapman Publishing Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

'"Becoming a Teaching Assistant" recognizes the rapidly changing world of TAs. It highlights the importance of their role in teaching and learning whilst emphasising the need to nurture them as they embark upon more considered and structured professional development. It sets out to support all TAs, not just those who wish to use higher academic qualifications as a route into teaching' - "Journal In-Service Education". 'A book founded in considerable experience! tackling the higher education experience itself: how to keep organized! advice is always valuable for people returning to learning at whatever level' - Gerald Haigh, "Times Educational Supplement". 'I thought the book was a valuable tool for Teaching Assistants attending any training either at FE or HE. I am doing an on-line degree myself. I started to read the book after my first assignment went in but once I started to read the book I really wished that I had read it a lot sooner. The way it gently builds the learner up to thinking about professional development, then applying for courses is exactly what is needed. I also like the key areas the book homes in on when going through HE or FE, looking at time management not only form a work perspective but from the home environment too.' 'The guidance on building confidence, developing study skills are essential to any learner who is new to this sort of environment. The progression the book takes you through developing your own reading and writing this is something every learner needs support with. For any TA or learner looking at Professional Development as a Teaching Assistant this is a book that I would use and find very valuable' - Carole Tonner, Middlesbrough Teacher Learning Centre. 'This book is aimed at all TAs who are undertaking undergraduate-level programmes such as CPPLS, CAPPLS, CEP or a Foundation Degree. A TA on the CEP course states: it's probably the best book on the subject I've read ! it's full of useful tips' - East Riding of Yorkshire's TA Newsletter. This book is a course text for teaching assistants. It aims to help students make the transition into undergraduate level study. It is also a teaching and learning resource for students and tutors on undergraduate programmes. The authors introduce students to the requirements that their degree programmes will make and explore issues such as behaviour management and national curriculum strategies. This will help readers to engage with the material in a way that is appropriate to Higher Education study. The book draws on the experiences of teaching assistants and is grounded in the day-to-day practices of professionals working with young people in schools. Theoretical concepts are explored as being crucial to developing learning support and teaching skills. The authors' aim is to help students understand essential theory, and to provide a practical support throughout their studies. This book is for teaching assistants working toward High Level Teaching Assistant status in teaching and learning (HLTA), and/or Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). It is a teaching resource for Higher Education tutors and school line managers of teaching assistants. It is also suitable for tutors and mentors as it gives guidance on content and presentation of professional development materials for teaching assistants. 'The text is made extremely accessible by the inclusion of plenty of case study material and there's a nice combination of practical advice and illustrative text.' 'A feature of the book is the tasks or activities that are suggested to the reader. It's likely that these are most likely to be used by training providers than individuals, but that would be a shame as there are many activities that would help to provide a structure for personal reflection and development' - TA Help Website. 'This book is aimed at all TAs who are undertaking undergraduate-level programmes such as CPPLS, CAPPLS, CEP or a Foundation Degree. A TA on the CEP course states: it's probably the best book on the subject I've read! it's full of useful tips' - East Riding of Yorkshire's TA Newsletter. 'A book founded in considerable experience! tackling the higher education experience itself: how to keep organized! advice is always valuable for people returning to learning at whatever level' - Gerald Haigh, "Times Educational Supplement". 'The book is littered with real-life examples, it will be hard to think of a scenario that has not been described and expanded upon. There are numerous activities to help you recognise and challenge your existing way of working' - Fiona Jukes, Spare Chair.

Excerpt: Ghostbusters is a supernatural comedy multi-media franchise created in 1984. Its inception was for the movie Ghostbusters, released on June 8, 1984 by Columbia Pictures. It centered around a group of eccentric New York City parapsychologists who investigate and capture ghosts for a living. For the movie this franchise licensed action figures, novelizations, and other original materials to be produced around the movies theme. After this initial success they released original stories in other fields such as a comic book, a video game, a television series, and a theme park attraction. With the 2009 release of Ghostbusters: The Video Game the characters within the Ghostbusters set up their own fictional version of a Ghostbusters franchise to open Ghostbusters locations in other cities, which in real life was earlier seen in two independent films not officially approved by Columbia Pictures. The concept of the first film was inspired by Dan Aykroyd's own fascination with the paranormal, and it was conceived by Aykroyd as a vehicle for himself and friend and fellow Saturday Night Live alum John Belushi. Aykroyd came up with Ghostbusters after reading an article about quantum physics and parapsychology in the American Society of Psychical Research Journal and then watching movies like Ghostchasers. Aykroyd thought, "Let's redo one of those old ghost comedies, but let's use the research that's being done today. Even at that time, there was plausible research that could point to a device that could capture ectoplasm or materialization; at least visually." The original story as written by Aykroyd was much more ambitious-and unfocused-than what would be eventually filmed; in Aykroyd's original vision, a group of Ghostbusters would travel through time, space and other dimensions taking on huge ghosts (of which the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man was just one of many). Also, the Ghostbusters wore S.W.A.T.-like outfits and used wands instead of Proton Packs to fight the ghosts; Ghostbu

Benjamin Parzybok - Couch Big Mouth House

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"Couch hits on an improbable, even fantastic premise, and then rigorously hews to the logic that it generates, keeping it afloat (at times literally) to the end." -Los Angeles Times "Delightfully lighthearted writing...Occasionally laugh-out-loud funny, the enthusiastic prose carries readers through sporadic dark moments ...Parzybok's quirky humor recalls the flaws and successes of early Douglas Adams."-Publishers Weekly "The book succeeds as a conceptual art piece, a literary travelogue, and a fantastical quest." -Willamette Week "Hundreds of writers have slavishly imitated-or outright ripped off-Tolkien in ways that connoisseurs of other genres would consider shameless. What Parzybok has done here in adapting the same old song to a world more familiar to the reader is to revive the genre and make it relevant again" -The Stranger A Spring Summer Indie Next Reading List Pick: Top 10 Reading Group Suggestions "Couch follows the quirky journey of Thom, Erik, and Tree as they venture into the unknown at the behest of a magical, orange couch, which has its own plan for their previously boring lives. Parzybok's colorful characters, striking humor, and eccentric magical realism offer up an adventuresome read." -Christian Crider, Inkwood Books, Tampa, FL A January 2009 Indie Next List Pick "This funny novel of furniture moving gone awry is a magical realism quest for modern times. Parzybok's touching story explores the aimlessness of our culture, a society of jobs instead of callings, replete with opportunities and choices but without the philosophies and vocations we need to make meaningful decisions." -Josh Cook, Porter Square Books, Cambridge, MA "A lot of people are looking for magic in the world today, but only Benjamin Parzybok thought to check the sofa, which is, I think, the place it's most likely to be found. Couch is a slacker epic: a gentle, funny book that ambles merrily from Coupland to Tolkien, and gives couch-surfing (among other things) a whole new meaning." -Paul La Farge "One of the strangest road novels you'll ever read. It's a funny and fun book, and it's also a very smart book. Fans of Tom Robbins or Christopher Moore should enjoy this." -Handee Books "It is an upholstered Odyssey unlike any other you are likely to read. It is funny, confusing in places, wild and anarchic. It is part Quixote, part Murakami, part Tom Robbins, part DFS showroom. It has cult hit written all over it." -Scott, Me and My Big Mouth Benjamin Parzybok on tour: http://booktour.com/author/benjamin_parzybok In this exuberant and hilarious debut reminiscent of The Life of Pi and Then We Came to the End, an episode of furniture moving gone awry becomes an impromptu quest of self-discovery, secret histories, and unexpected revelations. Thom is a computer geek whose hacking of a certain Washington-based software giant has won him a little fame but few job prospects. Erik is a smalltime con man, a fast-talker who is never quite quick enough on his feet. Their roommate, Tree, is a confused clairvoyant whose dreams and prophecies may not be completely off base. After a freak accident fl oods their apartment, the three are evicted-but they have to take their couch with them. The real problem? The couch-huge and orange-won't let them put it down. Soon the three roommates are on a cross-country trek along back roads, byways, and rail lines, heading far out of Portland and deep into one very weird corner of the American dream. Benjamin Parzybok is the creator of Gumball Poetry, a journal published through gumball machines, and the Black Magic Insurance Agency, a city-wide mystery/treasure hunt. He has worked as a congressional page, a ghostwriter for the governor of Washington, a web developer, a Taiwanese factory technical writer, an asbestos removal janitor, and a potato sorter. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with the writer Laura Moulton and their two children.

"Ambitious.... The truth is that Fromkin's outline is persuasively thought out and presented."--"The Washington Post Book World As the human race approaches the 21st century, questions of our past trouble us as much as those that concern our future. How did we get here? Where--and how--did Homo sapiens originate? How did we, precariously bipedal, come to dominate the animal kingdom, direct the flow of the Euphrates, fly a rocket to the moon? David Fromkin, author of A Peace to End All Peace and finalist for both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critic Circle Award, provides an arrestingly cogent answer in The Way of the World. With insight and sound scholarship, he reveals how human culture has evolved according to the principles of self-determination--from the footsteps of the first hominids 3.5 million years ago to the efforts of contemporary democracies' to establish a global, lasting peace. Here is a world history wherein early forms of Christianity give way to rationalism, the tyranny of kings crumbles to the merits of representative government, and modern science presents us with the master key to the future. Refreshingly positive, David Fromkin reminds us of the astounding record of human achievement, and the potential in each of us to improve the way of our world. "Mr. Fromkin recounts 'the greatest story ever told' exceedingly well, aided by a deep knowledge and an elegant prose style."--"The Wall Street Journal "The Way of the World is worldly, civilized, genial."--"The Boston Globe
