Summary Book and excerpt Omaha Blues :
Download or Read book Omaha Blues written by Joseph Lelyveld and published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux. This book was released on 2006-03-21 with total page 240 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: The profoundly moving family history of one of America's greatest newspapermen. As his father lies dying, Joseph Lelyveld finds himself in the basement of the Cleveland synagogue where Arthur Lelyveld was the celebrated rabbi. Nicknamed "the memory boy" by his parents, the fifty-nine-year-old son begins to revisit the portion of his father's life recorded in letters, newspaper clippings, and mementos stored in a dusty camp trunk. In an excursion into an unsettled and shakily recalled period of his boyhood, Lelyveld uses these artifacts, and the journalistic reporting techniques of his career as an author and editor, to investigate memories that have haunted him in adult life.. With equal measures of candor and tenderness, Lelyveld unravels the tangled story of his father and his mother, a Shakespeare scholar whose passion for independence led her to recoil from her roles as a clergyman's wife and, for a time, as a mother. This reacquired history of his sometimes troubled family becomes the framework for the author's story; in particular, his discovery in early adolescence of the way personal emotions cue political choices, when he is forced to choose sides between his father and his own closest adult friend, a colleague of his father's who is suddenly dismissed for concealing Communist ties. Lelyveld's effort to recapture his family history takes him on an unforeseen journey past disparate landmarks of the last century, including the Scottsboro trials, the Zionist movement, the Hollywood blacklist, McCarthyism, and Mississippi's "freedom summer" of 1964. His excursion becomes both a meditation on the selectivity and unreliability of memory and a testimony to the possibilities, even late in life, for understanding and healing. In Omaha Blues, as Lelyveld seeks out the truth of his life story, he evokes a remarkable moment in our national story with unforgettable poignancy.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: There is world of adventure just a dream away. There is more to your home than what you’ve seen. There is a place you have never stepped foot in. Your home has an outside, an inside, and a side you didn’t know existed: Dreamside. If you have a very healthy dose of curiosity and courage, you might be able to find it. In fact, on an afternoon not too many days ago, a young boy named Keaghan discovered the way in. This is the story of Keaghan and his adventures in Dreamside, a strange world of twisting hallways, a labyrinth just beyond the walls (and through and between) of every home. Keaghan must journey to the Heart of Dream, over the Sea of Teeth, through the dark and deadly Blether House, into the House of No, through Overside and Underside, and more wonderful and frightening places in a race to to stop the invading Cra-gin and their horde of ravaging Tomsi. Can Keaghan save his home, his Dreamside, and all of reality? Can Keaghan unlock the mystery that is the Boy at the End and prevent the destruction of the Tree of Dream? And can Keaghan do all this when every one of his friends have fallen in the Dream War and left him alone? Collecting Books I through V of the Tales of Dreamside Series "This is a phenomenally imaginative series, with a strong, relatable child protagonist, collected in this handsome, beautifully illustrated edition. It can also be appealingly dark, with eerie fairy-tale motifs . . . overall, an original, entertaining YA fantasy." —Kirkus Reviews "A marvelous epic fantasy that is contemporary and timeless all at once. Keaghan's travels . . . take him into some pretty perilous places, and he gets to know some stalwart companions and encounter some downright scary villains. Batt's creative genius is paired with a gift for writing fast-paced, exciting prose that is accessible both to kids and adults who enjoy fantasy. I found myself enjoying every minute spent following Keaghan as he maneuvers through his alternative world. This is epic fantasy that entertains and fully involves the reader. It's highly recommended." —ReadersFavorite.com

Summary Book and excerpt The Man Who Saw Tomorrow :
Download or Read book The Man Who Saw Tomorrow written by Lillian Hoddeson and published by MIT Press. This book was released on 2018-04-20 with total page 400 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: The first full-length biography of a brilliant, self-taught inventor whose innovations in information and energy technology continue to shape our world. The Economist called Stanford R. Ovshinsky (1922–2012) “the Edison of our age,” but this apt comparison doesn't capture the full range of his achievements. As an independent, self-educated inventor, Ovshinsky not only created many important devices but also made fundamental discoveries in materials science. This book offers the first full-length biography of a visionary whose energy and information innovations continue to fuel our post-industrial economy. In The Man Who Saw Tomorrow, Lillian Hoddeson and Peter Garrett tell the story of an unconventional genius with no formal education beyond high school who invented, among other things, the rechargeable nickel metal hydride batteries that have powered everything from portable electronics to hybrid cars, a system for mass-producing affordable thin-film solar panels, and rewritable CDs and DVDs. His most important discovery, the Ovshinsky effect, led to a paradigm shift in condensed matter physics and yielded phase-change memory, which is now enabling new advances in microelectronics. A son of the working class who began as a machinist and toolmaker, Ovshinsky focused his work on finding solutions to urgent social problems, and to pursue those goals, he founded Energy Conversion Devices, a unique research and development lab. At the end of his life, battered by personal and professional losses, Ovshinsky nevertheless kept working to combat global warming by making solar energy “cheaper than coal”—another of his many visions of a better tomorrow.

The invitation to join the secretive Guadel should have been the fulfillment of dreams Va'del didn't even realize he had. When his sponsors are killed in an ambush a short time later, he instead finds his probationary status revoked, and becomes a pawn between various factions inside the Guadel ruling body. Jain's never known any life but that of a Guadel in training. She'd thought herself reconciled to the idea of a loveless marriage for the good of her people, but meeting Va'del changes everything.
