Dr. Stephen William Hawking, British mathematician, theoretical physicist, and cosmologist, is the face of twenty-first century physics, and yet cannot speak directly to his audience. He is no longer able to move his limbs due to the incapacitating effects of ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. The affliction is better known in the United States as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," named after the great American baseball player. Since 2009, in fact, Hawking can no longer operate his wheelchair. His desperate struggle to stay connected comes at a time in which the amassing of Hawking's theories, developed over the past half-century, seems poised to discover and affirm new solutions to the mysteries of the universe. Occupying a unique place in the history of physics, Hawking, more than Newton or Einstein, lives in the perfect era from which to stand at the threshold of new possibilities for balancing and synchronizing the theories of General Relativity, put forth by his great predecessors, and the newer field of the quantum world, hinted at in the mid-twentieth century but only more recently brought forward by leading proponents. He has devoted the lion's share of his adult life to "probing the space-time described by general relativity and the singularities where it breaks down," and is, in advancing years, more driven than ever by the urge to uncover all he can about the nature of the larger universe. Stephen Hawking: The Life of the World's Most Famous Scientist examines the life and career of the English physicist. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicholas Olivo.

The media tells us that every election is like no other in history but 2016 actually deserves that title. America has a unique field of candidates: Donald Trump, a reality TV star with no experience in government and who lacks the support of much of his political party. Hillary Clinton, a former First Lady who is being investigated by the FBI. Bernie Sanders, a Jewish man who wears the label of "socialist" proudly. Ted Cruz, a Canadian-born Hispanic who is reviled by much of his own party. And John Kasich, a conservative, white governor. That last one wouldn't be so groundbreaking but he is still in there. This brawl for the nomination absorbs an incredible amount of media attention, but so much of what is produced is marred by partisanship that it is no wonder that so few Americans fully understand the nomination process. Because of these misunderstandings the Quick and Dirty Guide Team is proud to present our guide to America's messy primary elections! This book will walk you through the "whys" and the "hows" of our candidate selection process. This includes answers to questions like "Why does Iowa get to go first?" "How does a caucus work?" and "What's so super about superdelegates and why do just Democrats have them?" 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Hawking.

Our intuition about how things should behave is usually right in the everyday world. We see the baseball soar in the air, arc, drop, and lie stationary on the ground. Through data gathered by our senses and basic knowledge of the laws of classical mechanics, the motion of a ball makes perfect sense.But enter the world of the tiniest particles on earth—the motion of electrons, the shapes of molecules—and everything we think we know about the world radically changes. To understand what’s really happening in the world around us, to comprehend the mysterious, counterintuitive science of the small, we must take a quantum theory view of nature. Like no other book before it, Absolutely Small makes the inherently challenging field of quantum theory understandable to nonscientists, without oversimplifying and without bogging down in complicated math. Written by an award-winning professor at Stanford University, the book uses clear explanations and real-world examples instead of dense equations to help you understand: Why strawberries are red and blueberries are blue How particles can change from “mixed states” to “pure states” based solely on observation How a single photon can be in two places at the same time Why quantum matter sometimes acts like particles, and other times like waves Why a piece of metal will glow red when it is hot, and turn blue when it’s even hotter What makes salt dissolve in water, while oil does not, and much more In the tradition of Stephen Hawking and Lewis Thomas, but without the rigorous mathematical requirements, Absolutely Small demystifies the fascinating realm of quantum physics and chemistry, complete with compelling accounts of the scientists and experiments that helped form our current understanding of quantum matter. 1.

Book two explains the process of obtaining these "interviews from people on the Flipside". Jennifer Shaffer is a renowned medium/intuitive who works with law enforcement in the US to help find missing persons. Richard Martini is a best-selling author who either knew the people they seek to interview, or their class moderator Luana Anders (on the flipside) helps moderate the discussions. Each chapter is an exploration of what is said, research is done to verify details that are heard, and observations of the process are made. The following are just a sampling of some of the people "accessed" via this process.“Ed Taylor, Robert & the Oscar nominated dog”. Interview with Oscar-winning screenwriter Robert Towne (alive) and two friends on the flipside.“It’s fun over here”. Interview with Oscar-winning director Sydney Pollack on the flipside.“Love is a higher frequency”. Producer Jonathan Krane and Marlon Brando are accessed on the flipside. “Black holes & the Infinite”. Interviews with Stephen Hawking, Garry Shandling, and Christopher Hitchens.Jennifer and Luana: “Blueprints”. Actress/teacher Luana Anders goes over how to assemble a class on the flipside. "Brothers from another planet". Various class members weigh in on reports from the flipside. Consciousness: “Unearthly Answers”. More general discussions, including Bill Paxton, Tom Petty, and others. John, George, Jimi: “Blue Suede Shoes”. Jimi Hendrix, George Harrison, and John Lennon comment from the flipside. “Buddha and Jesus walk into a bar”. Interviews with two people who claim to be avatars.“Field trips”. An interview with Amelia Earhart and a journey to an akashic library.“Ghost stories”. Ghost hunting with Garry Shandling, Gilda Radner, and John Belushi.“Wednesday people”. With Anthony Bourdain, Kate Spade, and Robin Williams. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Martini. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/123644/bk_acx0_123644_sample.mp3.
