Book Summary: In 1987–1988 was die stowwerige Angolese dorpie Cuito Cuanavale die toneel van die laaste gevegte van die Grensoorlog. Sedertdien is dit die fokuspunt van ’n openbare debat oor wie eintlik hierdie oorlog gewen het. Die leierskorps van die Suid-Afrikaanse Weermag (SAW) hou vol hulle is nooit verslaan nie, terwyl die alliansie van die Angolese MPLA-regering, Kuba en Swapo beweer hulle het die SAW uit Angola en Suidwes-Afrika verdryf. Hulle glo voorts die SAW wou Cuito Cuanavale beset en as afspringplek gebruik om Luanda in te neem. Maar was Cuito Cuanavale ooit regtig ’n doelwit vir die Suid-Afrikaners? Dit is die vraag wat Leopold Scholtz vra wanneer hy onlangs gedeklassi-fiseerde dokumente in die weermagargief bestudeer en die taktiese en strategiese besluite ondersoek wat ’n bepalende rol in die ses groot veldslae van dié veldtog gespeel het. Sy kritiese ontleding wys hoe maklik propaganda en politiek in die pad van feite kan staan.

Book Summary: Op 3 Oktober 1987 het Charlie-eskadron - die ystervuis van 61 Gemeganiseerde Bataljongroep - op die Lombarivier in die suide van Angola teen 'n veel groter Angolese mag met beter wapentuig as hulle te staan gekom. Tenks is veronderstel teen tenks aangewend moes word. Tog moes die jong dienspligtiges die Angolese tenks van 47 Brigade in Ratels met minder kragtige kanonne en dun pantser aanvat. Boonop was die terrein so dig bebos dat hulle net enkele meter ver kon sien en moeilik kon beweeg. Leopold Scholtz se beskrywing van hierdie Dawid teen Goliat-geveg tydens Operasie Moduler neem die leser na die hart van die aksie. Danksy onderhoude met veterane en dagboekinskrywings dra hierdie intense hervertelling die volle drama van die geveg en ander ervarings aan die front oor. Dit is 'n diep menslike verhaal oor hoe individue reageer in die aangesig van die dood en ook hoe die oorlog hulle nooit uit sy kloue gelaat het nie...

Book Summary: WHAT cruel twist of tectonic irony caused the deepest scar on the earths surface across the face of that continent that would also suffer the most appalling of human tragedies? So begins a narrative set against the backdrop of the timeless mountain called in Zulu uKhahlamba, the Barrier of Spears. Yet the story is not uniquely South African; it is not about apartheid, or about Blacks, or Whites. Rather, it is about the countless gray people, ordinary individuals who become trapped in the consummation of historical inevitabilities that are neither of their doing, nor of their choosing. In a tragic series of events two friends will discover what sacrifices are exacted from those who would dwell in the no mans land of the summit, where fog often obscures the vision and deprivation dulls the senses until it becomes all too easy to drift into hostile territory or stumble into the jaws of the precipice. But they will also learn that barriers are not always what they seem. In that hauntingly beautiful land it is never merely about survival, but about the things that make it truly worthwhile, such as friendship, loyalty, and honor, regardless of the price.

Book Summary: In vergeelde foto’s van drie dekades gelede staan oop gesigseuns vol bravade voor hul Ratel-gevegsvoertuie. Hierdie dienspligtiges van 61 Gemeganiseerde Bataljon Groep staan aan die begin van hul reis diep in Angola in om vir volk en vaderland te gaan veg. In ’n bloedige geveg op Valentynsdag 1988 en in die doods akker by Tumpo sou hul jeugdige onskuld egter sneuwel. In die hitte van die gevegte kom die besef: Nou gaan dit nie oor ideologie nie, maar om oorlewing. Ná die oorlog gaan die lewe voort, maar die vrae en geestelike letsels wyk nie. In 2018 keer ’n groep van dié ouddienspligtiges terug na Cuito Cuanavale op soek na afsluiting – en om die wrak te vind van die Ratel waarin ’n makker op die laaste dag van die oorlog gesterf het. Die Brug vertel van hul reis van jong man na veteraan en gee ook ’n stem aan die vroue in hul lewe. Dit is ’n verhaal van ontnugtering, maar ook van trotse kameraderie en genesing.

Book Summary: Never before has wildlife narration been this bold and this hilarious. More than 40 million people have viewed Randall’s honey badger video, “The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger.” “It has no regard for anyone or anything—it just takes what it wants! What a little badass!” When viewing wildlife footage, who hasn’t thought at times, “Ewww! What the hell is that?!” Randall thinks it — and says so! In Honey Badger Don’t Care, Randall examines and humorously informs on a dozen crazy, nasty animals of the wild kingdom employing his unique style of telling it like it is! His wildlife writing is refreshingly honest. If an animal scares Randall, he’s not afraid to share. Unlike most nature writers, Randall doesn’t deliver the sugarcoated or drab description. He “goes there” and shares his true feelings with his audience. Because of this, his readers feel that they can relate. Randall loves animals—even the ones that terrify him. He may not agree with how these animals conduct themselves in the world, but Randall wants everyone to know who they are. Just as he introduced the world to the honey badger, the Jesus lizard, and others, so will Randall shed light on twelve bizarre and interesting animals. Designed with callouts, sidebars, and more than fifty photos, Honey Badger Don’t Care presents a wildlife book for adults—hilarious, irreverent, profane, yet charming, chatty, and informative. Don’t be stupid—buy this book!

Book Summary: Physical inactivity is a key determinant of health across the lifespan. A lack of activity increases the risk of heart disease, colon and breast cancer, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, osteoporosis, anxiety and depression and others diseases. Emerging literature has suggested that in terms of mortality, the global population health burden of physical inactivity approaches that of cigarette smoking. The prevalence and substantial disease risk associated with physical inactivity has been described as a pandemic. The prevalence, health impact, and evidence of changeability all have resulted in calls for action to increase physical activity across the lifespan. In response to the need to find ways to make physical activity a health priority for youth, the Institute of Medicine's Committee on Physical Activity and Physical Education in the School Environment was formed. Its purpose was to review the current status of physical activity and physical education in the school environment, including before, during, and after school, and examine the influences of physical activity and physical education on the short and long term physical, cognitive and brain, and psychosocial health and development of children and adolescents. Educating the Student Body makes recommendations about approaches for strengthening and improving programs and policies for physical activity and physical education in the school environment. This report lays out a set of guiding principles to guide its work on these tasks. These included: recognizing the benefits of instilling life-long physical activity habits in children; the value of using systems thinking in improving physical activity and physical education in the school environment; the recognition of current disparities in opportunities and the need to achieve equity in physical activity and physical education; the importance of considering all types of school environments; the need to take into consideration the diversity of students as recommendations are developed. This report will be of interest to local and national policymakers, school officials, teachers, and the education community, researchers, professional organizations, and parents interested in physical activity, physical education, and health for school-aged children and adolescents.

Our solar system consists of eight planets, as well as numerous moons, comets, asteroids, and meteoroids. For thousands of years, humans believed that Earth was at the center of the Universe, but all of that changed in the 17th century. Astronomers like Nicolaus Copernicus, Galileo Galilei, Johannes Kepler, and Isaac Newton proposed the unthinkable theory that Earth and the other planets actually revolved around the Sun. This engaging book chronicles the beginning of the modern age of astronomy, then follows later discoveries, including NASA's current missions in space.

Book Summary: As political, economic, and environmental issues increasingly spread across the globe, the science of geography is being rediscovered by scientists, policymakers, and educators alike. Geography has been made a core subject in U.S. schools, and scientists from a variety of disciplines are using analytical tools originally developed by geographers. Rediscovering Geography presents a broad overview of geography's renewed importance in a changing world. Through discussions and highlighted case studies, this book illustrates geography's impact on international trade, environmental change, population growth, information infrastructure, the condition of cities, the spread of AIDS, and much more. The committee examines some of the more significant tools for data collection, storage, analysis, and display, with examples of major contributions made by geographers. Rediscovering Geography provides a blueprint for the future of the discipline, recommending how to strengthen its intellectual and institutional foundation and meet the demand for geographic expertise among professionals and the public.

Book Summary: Parkinson's disease is a neurological disorder with cardinal motor signs of resting tremor, bradykinesia and lead-pipe rigidity. In addition, many patients display non-motor symptoms, including a diminished sensation of smell, gastrointestinal problems, various disorders of sleep and some cognitive impairment. These clinical features - particularly the motor signs - manifest after a progressive death of many dopaminergic neurones in the brain. Although currently available, conventional therapies can reduce the signs of the disease, the progression of this neuronal death has proved difficult to slow or stop, and the condition is relentlessly progressive. Hence, there is a real need to develop a treatment that is neuroprotective, one that slows the pathology of the disease effectively. At present, there are several neuroprotective therapies in the experimental pipeline, but these are for the patients of tomorrow. This book focuses on two therapies that are readily available for the patients of today. They involve the use of exercise and light (i.e. photobiomodulation, the use of red to infrared light therapy (λ=600-1070nm) on body tissues). The two therapies are tied together in several ways. First, in animal models of Parkinson's disease, they each have been shown to offer the key feature of neuroprotection, stimulating a series of built-in protective mechanisms within the neurones, that helps their survival, to self-protect and/or self-repair. There are also some promising indications of neuroprotection and many beneficial outcomes in parkinsonian patients. Further, both exercise and light therapies are similar in that they are non-invasive and safe to use, with no known adverse side-effects, making their combination with the conventional therapies, such as dopamine replacement drug therapy and deep brain stimulation, all the more feasible. Given the heterogeneity of Parkinson's disease in humans, tackling the condition from a range of different angles - with a number of different therapies - would only serve to enhance the positive outcomes. This book considers the use of exercise and light therapies, proposing that they have the potential to make a powerful "dynamic duo", offering a most effective neuroprotective treatment option to patients.

Book Summary: Laura Lam's adult sci-fi debut False Hearts: Two formerly conjoined sisters are ensnared in a murderous plot involving psychoactive drugs, shared dreaming, organized crime, and a sinister cult. Raised in the closed cult of Mana's Hearth and denied access to modern technology, conjoined sisters Taema and Tila dream of a life beyond the walls of the compound. When the heart they share begins to fail, the twins escape to San Francisco, where they are surgically separated and given new artificial hearts. From then on they pursue lives beyond anything they could have previously imagined. Ten years later, Tila returns one night to the twins' home in the city, terrified and covered in blood, just before the police arrive and arrest her for murder--the first homicide by a civilian in decades. Tila is suspected of involvement with the Ratel, a powerful crime syndicate that deals in the flow of Verve, a drug that allows violent minds to enact their darkest desires in a terrifying dreamscape. Taema is given a proposition: go undercover as her sister and perhaps save her twin's life. But during her investigation Taema discovers disturbing links between the twins' past and their present. Once unable to keep anything from each other, the sisters now discover the true cost of secrets.

Book Summary: A Handbook for Spiritual Growth In 1970 Charles Hapgood asked Elwood Babbitt, a full trance medium, to contact the Hindu deity, Vishnu. At that time he believed that Vishnu was one of the Hindu Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Siva, which corresponded in ancient philosophy to the earth's seasons of Spring, Summer and Fall. When this request was made of Elwood Babbitt's chief assistant in spirit, Dr. Frederick Fischer, Fischer said Hapgood was asking for the All-In-All. Hapgood found, on investigation, that the highest thought of India was indeed monotheistic, that Vishnu was accepted as the One, the Universal Spirit, of which Brahma and Siva were aspects. Fischer said that bringing in the total Force of the universe to express through the body of a medium had never been done before, but he thought it could be done, and he accomplished it, but not without mortal danger to the medium. Exposed to too great an energy Babbitt became very ill and for several weeks it seemed he was unlikely to survive. Fischer, however, managed to moderate the vibrational force so that the transmissions could continue. Hapgood interrogated Vishnu, attempting to cover as wide an area as possible to answer questions in the minds of people. Tape recordings were made and these will be available to the public in due course. After the recordings were transcribed Hapgood edited the texts to clarify any expressions that were confused owing to minor distortions of language because of distortions of the vibrations coming through Babbitt's brain. The result is a comprehensive and clear work, avoiding technicalities of philosophy or dogma, and concentrating on the problem of assisting all those who wish to devote themselves to the path of spiritual growth.
