    Amber "AJ" Johnson is a freelance writer who has one chance of winning her dream-job as a full-time staffer: capture an interview with the very private goalie of Baltimore's hockey team, Alec Kolchak.   One year ago during the Storymoja Festival, I launched my book, A Killing in the Sun, a collection of short speculative stories, featuring African science fiction, fantasy and reception of the book has been, surprisingly, warm, at times awed, and at times an outright ‘oh wow!

    In her life, her work, and her words, Dr. Rankin demonstrates a new way to combine the brilliance of modern science with the wisdom of the heart. Anyone who will ever need a doctor, and certainly anyone who will ever be a doctor, will be enriched and enlightened by her ideas.

In praise of science by Sander Bais Download PDF EPUB FB2

It’s a great book. Funny, cheerful, and the one-star reviewer is talking nonsense. There is some fairly basic, well-explained, science to explain how we evolved and why this is important.

Most of the rest of the book is a humorous, practical and intelligent analysis of the physical and mental health benefits of this simple yet neglected activity/5(6).

A virtuoso introduction to the field of science, the most democratic of human endeavors. In this engaging, lyrical book, physicist Sander Bais shows how science can liberate us from our cultural straitjacket of prejudice and intolerance. We're living in a time in which technology is taken for granted, yet belief in such standard scientific facts as evolution is actually decreasing.

O’Mara, 53, is in his element striding through urban landscapes – from epic hikes across London’s sprawl to more sedate ambles in Oxford, where he received his DPhil – and waxing lyrical. An important book with a simple and powerful message - walk.
