    DESCRIPTION:

    Why do we age? The answer to this question is critical to our ability to prevent and treat highly age-related diseases such as cancer and heart disease that now cause the deaths of most people in the developed world.

    This short book provides an overview of biological aging theories including history, current status, major scientific controversies, and implications for the future of medicine. Major topics include: human mortality as a function of age, aging mechanisms and processes, the programmed vs. non-programmed aging controversy, empirical evidence on aging, and the feasibility of anti-aging and regenerative medicine.

    Evolution theory is essential to aging theories. Theorists have been struggling for 150 years to explain how aging, deterioration, and consequent death fit with Darwin’s survival of the fittest concept. This book explains how continuing genetics discoveries have produced changes in the way we think about evolution that in turn lead to new thinking about the nature of aging.

    DESCRIPTION:

    In this eloquent account of her current struggle with physical pain, Joni Eareckson Tada offers her perspective on divine healing, God’s purposes, and what it means to live with joy.

    Over four decades ago, a diving accident left Joni a quadriplegic. Today, she faces a new battle: unrelenting pain. The ongoing urgency of this season in her life has caused Joni to return to foundational questions about suffering and God’s will.

    A Place of Healing is not an ivory-tower treatise on suffering. It’s an intimate look into the life of a mature woman of God. Whether readers are enduring physical pain, financial loss, or relational grief, Joni invites them to process their suffering with her. Together, they will navigate the distance between God’s magnificent yes and heartbreaking no—and find new hope for thriving in-between.

    DESCRIPTION:

    When you’re a twin, loneliness is somewhat unfamiliar because you’ve always had each other. So when a twin passes, the other is left unprepared. Our loyalty was steadfast and our devotion to one another, solid. Our love was unconditional no matter what the circumstances. I’m so grateful every day for the memories of the joy and laughter that we shared together. I know the bond that Kelli and I shared is impossible for anyone to replace.

    This memoir has become something so much more than initially intended. It’s become a documented journey barely scratching the surface of the love between two sisters. And surprisingly, it’s also become an outlet for me to speak candidly and honestly about my struggles with the cause of Kelli’s death. This is a love story turned tragedy. An exposure of one of the greatest healthcare failures killing Veterans and civilians, and a cry for help to remedy the fiasco.

    I’ve stressed about who I would mention in this book, nervous that I would hurt someone’s feelings by not mentioning their names. But I’ve realized that it’s impossible to do. Kelli had so many great friends, some I’ve never even met.

    I need each person to know who has taken the time to reach out to me in whatever capacity that if it weren’t for your heartfelt show of support and love, I don’t know that I would be able to muster the energy to even get up each day. Kelli, we did it.

    DESCRIPTION:

    When Ella’s dad announces they are moving to Seattle, of all places, seventeen-year-old Ella is far from happy, and even before she gets there, she already hates the worst summer of her life. In the rain! It only gets worse when the family finally arrives–with the wrong U-Haul truck. All of Ella’s precious belongings–gone! No Post-it Notes. No photos. No shoes. No clothes!

    Now Ella really hates the worst summer of her life… but then she finds a box of thirty-year-old love letters between Martha and Frederick; she becomes best friends with her new tiny neighbor, Miss T, who loves old movie quotes; she falls in love with Hans, a very symmetric German exchange student; and the sun actually shines!

    But summer ends abruptly when Ella is forced to make a decision that will change her life. Forever.

    Miss Apple Pants–set in 2012 and the eighties in the sweet Seattle rain–is a celebration of life, love, friendship, motherhood, and that special bond of girls, daughters, women, and mothers across generations.

    “Charlotte Roth caught my attention with the snappy chapter titles. She kept it with snappy dialogue, which I adore, unique characters, which I fell in love with, and a story filled with heartbreaking, humorous, and heartwarming moments.

    It hasn’t been easy for Eleanor, living with her tree hugging, ‘hippie-like’ parents. She’s not happy when they move her from the east coast all the way to Washington state. After an exhausting cross-country drive with her parents in a U-Haul truck, they finally reach their destination, only to find the truck is filled with another family’s belongings. After five days of being stranded with nothing of their own and limited funds, they finally decide to get some use out of the unclaimed contents of the truck. When they find an iron mailbox full of letters from 30 years ago, the two women in the family decide to read them. The tales of a young couple’s struggles three decades earlier weave a complex and interesting pattern into this already interesting web of entertaining story line.

    This first story of Ms. Roth reads like it’s her tenth, with crisp, clean writing. I’m looking forward to reading more from her.

    I give it 5 stars and high recommendations!”

    From Bestselling Paranormal Romance Author Lisa Olsen
    Someone is picking off a coven of witches one by one. Can Sgt. Nick Gibson and his team of detectives catch the killer before he loses the pretty witch who’s got him under her spell?

    Nick must cast aside his disbelief and delve into the world of the supernatural to solve the case. On hand to help is Annaliese, a member of the coven who claims to have had a prophetic dream at the exact time of each victim’s death, offering clues to the identity of the killer. Can he accept the ‘proof’ offered by unconventional means or is she deliberately leading him astray to hide her own secrets? To cloud the issue, a local evangelist is telling anyone who asks that the victims had it coming. Is religious mania the motive for murder, or is it something more personal?
    Editorial Review
    Pretty Witches All in a Row delivers a compelling crime procedural that kept me guessing the whole way through. Throw in a supernatural twist with magic and a coven of witches, and we’re in for quite a ride. Author Lisa Olsen balances the thrills and chills of paranormal mystery with a generous helping of humor, quick banter and well developed characters. Sergeant Nick Gibson is our sympathetic hero; his playful wit and down to earth relationship with his teenage daughter made me root for him from the first chapter. Annaliese, the pretty witch helping with the investigation, is an enigma; you want to trust her, but there are enough questions that you resist letting your guard down, and you end up hoping Nick isn’t a fool for placing his faith in her. I hope we’ll see this cast of characters again; it’d be a crime not to see where they go next.

    DESCRIPTION:

    Glenys is a now a story teller but she started out life as a story listener. Glenys used to work as a social worker in mental health and it is this work that has inspired the book ‘No Wonder We’re All Mad.’ The support of mental health services can be a lifeline to many but Glenys became frustrated with seeing people’s stories being pathologised and medicalised in order to be able to receive that support. Glenys saw her work as being alongside people while they tried to make sense of their stories and to help them rewrite the script of their lives or of a particular event.

    It is a human impulse to create order and meaning through imposing a story or narrative structure to our experiences in life. By sharing our stories we can know that we are not alone and that was certainly part of the reason why people would seek help through mental health services. The stories that people would bring were stories of life, unavoidable events that could happen to each and every one of us in this crazy world. Why, then, can it not be accepted that certain events are guaranteed to drive us…

This provocative novel asks: Is there ever a time when doing the wrong thing might be exactly right?

    Warning: Offers adult themes, bad language, violence, and a blistering feminist critique of how men always leave that crap…

    Calling all future scientists!

    Welcome to Toca Lab! Explore the colorful and electrifying world of science and meet all 118 of the elements from the periodic table.

    Discover elements by experimenting with the lab tools!

    * Take your element for a spin in the centrifuge.
    * Warm them up in the Bunsen burner.
    * Put the element on ice with the cooling agent!
    * Add a drop or two of mysterious liquids from the test tubes.
    * Change their voltage and make them magnetic with the oscilloscope.

    Each element has it’s own personality. In Toca Lab, what does Neon sound like? Is Gold heavy or light? Is Nitrogen squishy or hard? Explore, inspect, and study each one and let us know! Can you find all 118?

    The time has come, future scientists, to head into the lab to explore and discover. Put on your lab coat and protective eye gear because things are about to get experimental!
