How Cats Clawed Their Way Into Our Hearts - There are an estimated 600 million house cats on the planet today. To some people, they are beautiful, almost mystical creatures. To others, they are feline psychopaths responsible for the murder of billions of songbirds each year. In The Lion in the Living Room: How House Cats Tamed Us and Took Over the World, Abigail Tucker traces our long love affair with—and sometimes hatred of—cats. (Feral cats should be removed from the wild “by any means necessary,” according to some.)

Police Disturbances - Police behavior is under the microscope these days, notably in light of all the videos showing abusive officers. In the earlier part of the 20th century police were not held to the same behavioral standards as today. Policing meant wielding a billy club as an instrument of enforcement, though not always in the name of the law. By the 1940s police departments started to come under harsher civilian scrutiny and white papers were written advocating more humane procedures. In 1960 The National Association for Mental Health produced the first edition of How to Recognize and Handle Abnormal People, a manual for police on how to identify and behave with every type of “abnormal person” from the mentally ill to civil protesters (see the table of contents).

Survive the Bomb: The Radioactive Citizen's Guide to Nuclear Survival - Google Books - The launch of Russias Sputnik satellite in 1957 began an era where American citizens were haunted by fears of annihilation. Baby Boomers will remember Bert the Turtle, who instructed them how to duck and cover. Survive the Bomb documents other U.S. government efforts to calm the collective psyche with nuclear survival handouts. These cheerful and nave representations unintentionally inspired countless schoolchildren to question authority at an early age. This strange era reached its peak in 1962 with the Cuban Missile Crisis, lasting at least until the fall of the Berlin Wall. The nightmare still lingers today with the terrorist threat of dirty bombs and efforts by countries like Iran and North Korea to build their own nuclear arsenals. In addition to Civil Defense brochures and pamphlets from the period, Survive the Bomb includes: Aftermath descriptions and casualty estimates at various distances from a nuclear blast Civil Defense reports and

The three port cities of Chennai, Kolkata, and Mumbai were given shape by the British in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, whereas Delhi, which lies deep in the interior, has been a center of political and economic power for close to a thousand years. And perhaps even longer: some of the action of the epic Mahabharata is said to have taken place close to what is now Delhi.

Unscientific America - Climate change, the energy crisis, global pandemics, nuclear proliferation—many of the most urgent problems of the twenty-first century require science-based solutions. Yet Americans are paying less and less attention to scientists. For every five hours of cable news, less than a minute is devoted to science; the number of newspapers with weekly science sections has shrunken by two-thirds over the past several decades. Just 18 percent of Americans personally know a scientist to begin with, and exceedingly few can name a living scientist role model. No wonder rejection of science is rampant: 46 percent of Americans deny evolution and think the Earth is less than 10,000 years old; large numbers of Republicans continue to attack the science of climate change; and the public—including its wealthiest and best educated sectors—is in dangerous retreat from childhood vaccinations.

The Museum of Printing in North Andover, Massachusetts - This is The Museum of Printing in North Andover, Massachusetts, about an hour's drive North of Boston. It is home to one of the largest and most eclectic printing and typesetting collections in the country. First established in 1978, it now sits in a former textile museum on the North Andover Common, and is managed by an entirely volunteer organization. I was off to visit the Museum while on a nearby family visit in early July, and had the good fortune to meet up there with my new friend Sara from Western Mass. Meeting at the Museum seemed like a fitting idea, since we both were keen on printing technology and could find refuge from the heat inside. Sara first introduced herself to me earlier this year after discovering Letterology, and we have kept up a lively correspondence over many months discussing our mutual interests.Photo source: North Andover Patch

The Half-life of Facts: Why Everything We Know Has an Expiration Date: Samuel Arbesman: Amazon.com: Kindle Store - Facts change all the time. The age at which women should get a mammogram has increased. Smoking has gone from doctor recommended to deadly while the healthiness of carbs and fat seems to be in constant flux. We used to think the Earth was the center of the universe, that Pluto was a planet, and that the brontosaurus was a real dinosaur. What we know about the world is constantly changing. Samuel Arbesman is an expert in scientometrics, literally the science of science—how we know what we know. It turns out that knowledge in most fields evolves in systematic and predictable ways, and understanding that evolution can be enormously powerful. For instance, knowing how different branches of medicine overturn their bodies of knowledge can improve the way we train (and retrain) physicians.

(The market for Burberry Baby and other forms of kiddie “couture” has reportedly been growing by ten per cent a year.) They’ve also been granted unprecedented authority. “Parents want their kids’ approval, a reversal of the past ideal of children striving for their parents’ approval,” Jean Twenge and W.

Return of a Fugitive Slave, 1854 - Anthony Burns was a slave in his early twenties who had been hired out by his master to a man in Richmond. His duties often took him to the city docks where the freighters busily filling their holds with cargo for delivery to distant ports provided a chance of escape. In early February 1854 Anthony, aided by a friendly sailor, stowed away on one of these ships. The next day the slave, hidden in a small space in the bowels of the vessel, sailed down river on a journey to a new life. Four weeks later the ship docked in Boston and Anthony stepped ashore a free man. Or so he thought.

The History of Vibrators, Part 1: Orgasms as Medical Therapy for Hysteria - Vibrators Replaced Power Douches and Finger Stimulation as Treatment for Female HysteriaFor millennia, women were brought to “hysterical paroxysm” by a physician’s pelvic massage or by water jets. The vibrator made such treatment much more efficient — so efficient that women can cheaply buy their own vibrators to get orgasmic release.

Irrational choice theory - The Browser - - People tend to make an artificial separation between what they do in economic life and what they do in the rest of their lives. Economic sociology breaks down the distinction between those two things. For example, if you think about what’s important in your every day it’s the people you know – your family, your friends, your colleagues. Market and economic processes rely on those things as well. So the same kind of things that matter to you every day matter in the way that markets operate.

1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus (9781400040063): Charles C. Mann: Books - X Isle recently read this book. Highly recommended. Despite the title, the book is not about a single year. 1491 is used as a cutting point for defining the "precontact" Americas (pre-Columbian/European contact). Charles C. Mann is not an archaeologist; he is a scientific journalist who has previously written about medical science and physics. Here he synthesizes known information about the prehistory of North and South America and the changes that ensued after Europeans arrived. Mann's point in 1491 is that this was not even remotely a "pristine" environment unmodified by humans. Instead, what the awe-struck Europeans found was a world that had been managed for millennia by Native Americas. The role of Native Americans was unappreciated because their numbers had been decimated (literally) by epidemic diseases such as smallpox and typhus. Your library likely has the book, mine did, get it, read it, get a new view of the 'new world'. X

DOJ Reportedly Close To Deal That Would Lower E-Book Prices - The Consumerist - Ever since Apple got into the e-book business, publishers have been determining their own prices for titles, meaning that e-books, in spite of having minimal overhead costs, are often sold for higher prices than their print counterparts. But it looks like the Justice Dept. antitrust investigation into this so-called "agency pricing" model is nearing an end — and may result in more affordable e-books for everyone.

(A counter claim is made for an earlier visit of New York fans to meet Philadelphia fans at the home of one of their number, but this is hard to take seriously - see THE FIRST EVER CONVENTION, link below.) At a time when travelling any distance was much more difficult than it is today, several of those attending travelled hundreds of miles to be there. Held in Leeds' Theosophical Hall, at 14 Queen Square, the main order of business was setting up the Science Fiction Association, the UK's first national SF organisation.

The Vimanika shastra - Mr. G. R. Josyer, Director of the International Academy of Sanskrit Research in Mysore, in the course of an interview recently, showed some very ancient manuscripts which the Academy had collected. He claimed that the manuscripts were several thousands of years old, compiled by ancient rishis, Bharadwaja, Narada and others, dealing, not with the mysticism of ancient Hindu philosophy of Atman or Brahman, but with more mundane things vital for the existence of man and progress of nations both in times of peace and war. One manuscript dealt with Aeronautics, construction of various types of aircraft for civil aviation and for warfare. He showed me plans prepared according to directions contained in the manuscript on Aeronautics of three types of aircraft or Vimanas, namely, Rukma, Sundara and Shakuna Vimanas. Five hundred slokas or stanzas dealing with these go into such intricate details about choice and preparation of metals that would be suitable for various parts of vimanas of different types, constructional details, dimensions, designs and weight they could carry, and purposes they could be used for.

On the one hand, you become a fierce defender of the ways in which your little one is perfectly ordinary — all the things he or she can do that are just like what everybody else does. And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be “just like everybody else” has been.

FBI Thriller, Published in 1999, References 9/11 - Suz notes that the events of 9/11 were mentioned in a thriller published two years earlier. An FBI thriller, The Edge, by Catherine Coulter, was published in 1999. The book is part of Coulter's ongoing 'FBI Thriller Series.' The Edge reached number six on The New York Times Best-Seller List for fiction on the 5th of September 1999.Given the contents of the book, one wonders whether or not the FBI deserves credit for collaborating on the plot. A scan of Coulter's thriller includes the following sentence on page 19: “Maybe I had a chance not to be, in the Counter-Terrorism section; particularly after 9/11 when the world had changed” (19, emphasis added).The Edge was copyrighted by Catherine Coulter in 1999. The paperback version was released in 2000. The events of 9/11 hadn't happened yet.The vaticinations of Catherine Coulter’s book beg several questions. How did this writer predict that a major terrorism event would occur on 9/11? Who is this author? What if any connections does she have to the government?

Read The Tea Party Children's Book About How Obama Stole Christmas. - The Liberal Clause: Socialism on a Sleigh is written by David Hedrick, a Tea Party candidate who lost his bid this year to be the Republican candidate for Washington's third district. You may remember him from this recent story where he is accused of physically assaulting his wife. I think I was the only person to buy a copy of The Liberal Clause last night because Hedrick came over personally to shake my hand, talking excitedly about what he'd created (the book costs $20 so I'm not surprised a lot of people passed). The story, he told me, came naturally one night as he was making up a bedtime story for his children (the book is dedicated to them with the warning "Never forget that free goodies from liberal elves often come at a price"). The satire where Obama steals Christmas that Hedrick came up with on that fateful night was too good not to be illustrated and published for all children to enjoy.

The Historical Jesus in Context. - The Historical Jesus in Context is a landmark collection that places the gospel narratives in their full literary, social, and archaeological context. More than twenty-five internationally recognized experts offer new translations and descriptions of a broad range of texts that shed new light on the Jesus of history, including pagan prayers and private inscriptions, miracle tales and martyrdoms, parables and fables, divorce decrees and imperial propaganda.The translated materials--from Christian, Coptic, and Jewish as well as Greek, Roman, and Egyptian texts--extend beyond single phrases to encompass the full context, thus allowing readers to locate Jesus in a broader cultural setting than is usually made available. This book demonstrates that only by knowing the world in which Jesus lived and taught can we fully understand him, his message, and the spread of the Gospel.Gathering in one place material that was previously available only in disparate sources, this formidable book provides innovative insight into matters no less grand than first-century Jewish and Gentile life, the composition of the Gospels, and Jesus himself.

Partly, it probably reflects her deep reading and obvious appreciation of great literature, something that surfaces here again and again, though always unselfconsciously.

The I Hate Republicans Reader: Why the GOP is Totally Wrong About Everything - Few have the time or constitution to be able to remember the details of every horror story about how the Republican Party has repeatedly attempted to hijack the American dream for its own selfish reasons. For those who want to be sure they’re not left sputtering in an argument they know they should win hands-down, The I Hate Republicans Reader—via a wide range of lively and entertaining essays, articles, speeches, and rants—will be the place to go for the many compelling reasons to detest the GOP. From era-defining scandals such as Watergate, Iran-Contra, and Enron to coldhearted policies on health care, welfare, and race, to their outrageous theft of the 2000 election and tearing down of the liberal democratic ideals for which the Founding Fathers fought, to the isolationist arrogance of George W. Bush, this book has it all. Divided into such easy-reference sections as Greed, Corruption, Malicious Stupidity, and Big Lies, this collection includes appropriate excerpts from the likes of Eric Schlosser, Michael Moore, Joan Didion, Molly Ivins and Lou Dubose, and David Brock, as well as Ralph Nader, Paul Krugman, Hunter S.

Russia Requires All Students to Read The Gulag Archipelago - "GULag" is an acronym for the Russian term "Gulág", Glavnoye Upravleniye ispravitelno-trudovyh Lagerey, Russian for "Chief Administration of Corrective Labour Camps" (Главное Управление Исправительно-трудовых Лагерей), the bureaucratic name of the Soviet concentration camp main governing board, and by metonymy, the camp system itself. The original Russian title of the book is "Arkhipelag GULag", the rhyme supporting the underlying metaphor deployed throughout the work. The word archipelago compares the system of labor camps spread across the Soviet Union with a vast "chain of islands", known only to those who were fated to visit them.Since the Soviet Union's collapse and the formation of the Russian Federation, "The Gulag Archipelago" is included in the high school program in Russia as mandatory reading.1]

Lies My Teacher Told Me: Everything Your American History Textbook Got Wrong - As a conservative white male who views revisionist history quite skeptically, I did not expect much from this book. As a student of American history, I understood what a woeful job our textbooks and (unfortunately) our teachers do in teaching the actual history of this country, but I never expected both the depth and the level of scholarship Mr. Loewen presents in this book. It is well researched, well written and much needed. Having grown up near an Indian reservation, my own personal studies in original sources confirm how accurate Mr. Loewen really is. The book is hardly "political correctness" run amuck as suggested by one review. And his point is not to paint America as evil or bash Christian Europeans as two other reviews would lead us to believe. This type of simple minded attack does not tell us anything about the book, but rather betrays the reviewers' own entrenched viewpoints - viewpoints that certainly will not be changed by exposure to the truth.

A delicious tale of monstrous egos - T he delicious thing about this book - its guilty pleasure - is that it transports you to a parallel universe in which everything in the National Enquirer is true. In Race of a Lifetime , the reader travels with two highly diligent and workaholic reporters - John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, who are both clearly addicted to the human drama of US presidential elections.With the 2007/8 cycle the authors were blessed with America's most gripping electoral pageant in a generation. On the basis of hundreds of off-the-record interviews, the book adds a mischievously gossipy dimension to that drama. Yet what the authors reveal - the delusions, character assassinations and low plottings of some of the most monstrous egos on the planet - elevates our understanding of what happened. It may be personal. But it is not trivial.

Big Lies: The Right-Wing Propaganda Machine and How It Distorts the Truth - Conservative talk show hosts and newspaper columnists have made an industry out of incessantly deriding the American left, citing liberals for everything from moral decay to bad economic policy to a soft approach on terrorism. Often these accusations are bound in book form and sell quite well. Only one problem, according to Salon.com and New York Observer writer Joe Conason: the charges they're leveling just aren't true. In Big Lies, Conason dissects 10 of the most persistent, and--according to him--glaringly incorrect, arguments made by conservatives. Each chapter begins with a quotation ("Liberals control the media and misuse their influence to promote left-wing politics," "Conservatives are the only true champions of free enterprise"), which is then picked apart using statistical evidence and detailed historical research and rejected. The modern right wing, in the opinion of Conason, is not the bastion of virtue and defender of the common man it claims to be. Rather, it is a calculating and shrewdly efficient group of propagandists fueled by revenues generated by a system that rewards cronyism. Granted, it doesn't take much to deflate the bombast of shrill political talk show hosts whose very living depends on making shocking accusations about public figures, a couple of raw facts usually does the trick, but Conason offers more than simple refutation, going deeper to challenge the presumptions that generate such platitudes. And he navigates a highly readable and informative writing style that feels more substantive than Molly Ivins and Al Franken but still a lot wittier than Noam Chomsky. Many of Conason's arguments, like those of his foes, naturally come down to matters of opinion, and published material can readily be found to back up nearly any perspective. Nonetheless, he presents clear and logical points, and his thinking is well supported by both the historical record and empirical data. Accusing Joe Conason of lies (of any size) would certainly be a difficult task. --John Moe

36 Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction - Dinner party hostesses used to be warned to steer the conversation away from politics and religion. I used to wonder why, but I don’t anymore. There are some differences that reveal rifts so deep that dialogue breaks down. Among these are the current debates that have been raging between God-believers and the so-called new atheists. It often seems that people on one side can’t begin to grasp what the world is like, what it feels like, for those on the other side. When the person with whom one is conversing appears utterly opaque, then mistrust and contempt are easily aroused: How can he be saying that when the opposite seems so obvious to me? Is he stupid, dishonest, maybe just a touch evil? These are not the sort of suspicions that the gracious hostess wants intruding at her candle-lit dinner table.But for me, as a novelist, it’s differences like these, indicating entirely different orientations toward the world, which are the most tantalizing to explore. Arguments alone can’t capture all that is at stake for people when they argue about issues of reason and faith. In the end, I place my faith in fiction, in its power to make vividly present how different the world feels to each of us and how these differences are sometimes what is really being expressed in the great debates of our day on the existence of God.The title of the book is 36 Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction. I meant the subtitle to be understood as a sort of joke, but as a serious one, too. --Rebecca Goldstein

Sarah Palins Book Going Rogue Pulled From Shelves - Sarah Palin’s book Going Rogue has been pulled from the shelves due to a large misprint error. The intended, more appropriate title was supposed to be Going With Rouge. Word was sent out by the publishing house to those already possessing copies to just use lipstick to cross out the wrong title and write in the accurate one. This announcement was met with derisive remarks by some reporters making snide comments about ‘lipstick on a pig.’As an interesting side note, the publisher made the book out of bleached seal guts and bound it in whale hide to give it a ‘true Alaskan flavor.’ Black market copies with the original nude photos in them can be found on the internet and are making a bundle.

Books by donkey - LA GLORIA, Colombia — Primary school teacher Luis Soriano had a problem. His students in the northern Colombian village of La Gloria were slacking off and showing little interest in learning. Part of the problem was their reading material: They didn't have any. The sons and daughters of impoverished farmers, few had access to expensive books in their homes, while teachers like Soriano had just a handful of textbooks to pass around their classrooms.So, Soriano launched a book-mobile to distribute childrens' stories, poems, atlases — even "The Guinness Book of World Records" — to kids living in remote hamlets. He faced two hurdles. Many communities were so far off the grid that they couldn't be reached by vehicles. Another fine point was that Soriano, who earns about $300 a month, didn't own a car. Not to be stopped, he built a couple of book shelves to fit onto the back of his trusty donkey, Beto. Now, Soriano and his steed ply the dusty trails of northern Magdalena state, bringing "Robin Hood" and "Don Quixote" to a new generation of Colombian readers.

Parents battle over free Bibles for students in Frisco public schools | News for Dallas, Texas | Dallas Morning News | Latest News - There is a book battle of sorts taking place in Frisco schools. This isn't about a textbook - it's about the "Good Book." The district permits free Bibles to be put out for students; but there's a fine line between nonschool literature that's "put out" and "given out." Debbie Lutz has two children in Frisco schools. "How is that allowed?" she asked. "It makes me very mad." Gideon volunteers have visited both her children's campuses with Bibles in tow. It's part of the Frisco ISD's rotating schedule that permits the religious group in some schools for one day. "That is unbelievable," Lutz said. "No one has ever sent a letter home from the school district telling me that." District policy says nonschool literature is allowed as long as it doesn't "attack ethnic, religious, or racial groups." It also can't "interfere with school activities or the rights of others." A little history: The Gideons once handed out their Bibles along a public sidewalk in Frisco, but after too many parent complaints to the police department and the school, the district decided to move things inside. School officials said it's the only way to control the situation.

I left out some where the topic was particularly narrow and I left out others where the poster give no impression of knowing anything about the field other than having read the single book they recommend.And, of course, this is quite an arbitrary list of subjects and books — ask the same question of a different group of people and most of the list will no doubt be different (although the books that are the same… those will be the interesting ones).

How Science Shows That God Does Not Exist - This is an outstanding book. Victor Stenger, a Professor of both Physics and Astronomy, convincingly argues against the existence of God (by which he means the Judea-Christian-Islamic version) by examining a wide variety of scientific evidence. In my view Stenger succeeds in disproving God beyond a level of reasonable doubt. Certain high profile atheists (Richard Dawkins and Same Harris, to name but two) have already written bestsellers on this subject, and I would evaluate Stenger's work as one that fully deserves the same level of success and recognition.
