"Now there is a great story about what I am just telling you about in the great books called The Lord of the Rings. And if you ever really want to read about the Observer versus humanity, you should read them because they are really about truth. It is a whole book about truth. Now when the master teacher stands upon a very thin bridge and says to a monstrous necromancer, ominous and dreadful that would cause shudder to you, and the master stands and says 'you cannot pass, ' that captures more brilliantly in myth than any other piece that was ever written about that which is termed the Observer and that which is called the voices of the necromancer. You see, here is the deeper message of that. The necromancer could surely tear to pieces the master on the bridge because it is a thousand times larger than the master, but the master has something the necromancer doesn't: will." - Ramtha
For the fiftieth anniversary of the completion of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, a beautifully produced, heavily illustrated edition of Gay Talese's classic history of the iconic structure, now with a new introduction by the author. The Verrazano Narrows Bridge, linking the New York City boroughs of Brooklyn and Staten Island, is an engineering marvel. At 13,700 feet, it is the longest suspension bridge in the United States and the sixth longest in the world. But the sheer size of the bridge is only one part of its complicated, fascinating history. Renowned journalist Gay Talese chronicled the human drama the bridge's completion: from the construction workers high on the beams to the backroom dealing that displaced whole neighborhoods to make way for the bridge, through to the opening of this marvel of human ingenuity and engineering. Now in a new, beautifully packaged edition featuring dozens of breathtaking photos and architectural drawings, The Bridge remains both a riveting narrative of politics and courage and a demonstration of Talese's consummate reporting and storytelling that will captivate new generations of readers.

The skin on the outsides of the sensory organs on the head have special somatotopic qualities. The ears may be the best known of these systems, but the bridge of the nose can be used as well for treatments. These reflexology points can be treated with acupuncture needles for functional disorders and painful conditions of the associated organs. In addition to these reflexology zones have also a meaning in cosmetics because they show that an organ is momentarily subjected to high stress. Pimples, blemished skin or recurring skin disorders may be regarded as signs for such an overload. One of the authors, who rendered outstanding researches to this largely unknown somatotope is undoubtedly the German physician and dentist Dr . Jochen Gleditsch.

The untold story of how one sensational trial propelled a self-taught lawyer and a future president into the national spotlight. In May of 1856, the steamboat Effie Afton barreled into a pillar of the Rock Island Bridge, unalterably changing the course of American transportation history. Within a year, long-simmering tensions between powerful steamboat interests and burgeoning railroads exploded, and the nation’s attention, absorbed by the Dred Scott case, was riveted by a new civil trial. Dramatically reenacting the Effie Afton case—from its unlikely inception, complete with a young Abraham Lincoln’s soaring oratory, to the controversial finale—this “masterful” (Christian Science Monitor) account gives us the previously untold story of how one sensational trial propelled a self-taught lawyer and a future president into the national spotlight.
This is the continuing story of two men, alike in many ways, who travel far from their native land but are both drawn back to Durham, the spectacular mediaeval city that dominates the northeastern counties of England. But there is a difference. Six hundred years separates the lives of the two men. Oswald, who has seen action in France and England, is loyal to his King, Edward III, who is also called Plantagenet. When Oswald sees that the lives of Edward and his son, John of Lancaster (called John of Gaunt by many modern historians), are in jeopardy, he calls to his descendent, James Simpson, for help. James Simpson is a scientist of world renown who turns his talents to writing historical fiction. After returning to his native Durham, he settles into a quiet village hoping to continue his writing. But when Oswald contacts him, he realizes that they are closer in relationship and behavior that he had believed. Simpson is surprised to find that Oswald is reaching out to him from the past. He is also surprised that Oswald has a mission for him that requires being transported back into the fourteenth century. Simpson cannot resist being personally drawn into the mystery. With the exception of the main fictional characters in the story, the book is a historically accurate account of life in the fourteenth century and the politics that surrounded the throne of England.

Be inspired by the magnetic young principal who “stands on the front line of the fight to educate America's children." (Brandon Stanton, author of Humans of New York ) and the book that Essence calls "Essential reading." In 2010, Nadia Lopez started her middle-grade public school, Mott Hall Bridges Academy, in one of America’s poorest communities, in a record heat wave—and crime wave. Everything was an uphill battle—to get the school approved, to recruit faculty and students, to solve a million new problems every day, from violent crime to vanishing supplies—but Lopez was determined to break the downward spiral that had trapped too many inner-city children. The lessons came fast: unengaged teachers, wayward students, and the educational system itself, rarely in tune with the already disadvantaged and underprepared. Things were at a low ebb for everyone when one of her students told a photographer that his principal, “Ms. Lopez,” was the person who most influenced his life. The posting on Brandon Stanton’s Humans of New York site was the pebble that started a lucky landslide for Lopez and her team. Lopez found herself in the national spotlight and headed for a meeting with President Obama, as well as the beneficiary of a million-dollar campaign for the school, to fund her next dream: a field trip for her students to visit another school—Harvard. The Bridge to Brilliance is a book filled with common sense and caring that will carry her message to communities and classrooms far from Brooklyn. As she says, modestly, “There are hundreds of Ms. Lopezes around this country doing good work for kids. This honors all of them.” From the Hardcover edition.
They say that: "The veil between the worlds is becoming thinner by the day." I had been noticing energy structures in nature and in rooms for many years. Recently I started to feel nature spirits, devas and landscape angels within those energy formations. Then I began to tune into the community angels of villages, towns, nations and groups of people. They explained what we need to do to assist them in bringing down their divine energy of inspiration and healing - and how little use we are sometimes making of it. This third volume of 'The Science of Spiritual Healing' describes my journey into connecting with light beings, angels and these energy fields of wisdom. A chapter is dedicated to the little known background of some of the major illnesses of our time such as Ebola, cancer, depression, autism; another chapter introduces the diagnosis of chakras with the understanding of chakra segments. A long commentary is given about the angels of sacred places and what real transformation requires. This book describes how to bring about co-operation with the divine dimension so badly needed nowadays. It is a book of hope and inspiration, written in collaboration with a Collegium of Spirits.
