Five years to the day, almost to the second, after he disappeared form the Manhattan Psychiatric Institute, leaving his host body in a catatonic state, the being known as prot (rhymes with goat) has returned. Now, in sixteen more sessions with psychiatrist Gene Brewer, prot reveals that he has come back to escort a chosen few to his home planet, K-PAX. K-PAX is an idyllic planet free of the pain and suffering of earth. Prot has incredible insights into how to cure that suffering, and his radical ideas have made him a celebrity. Now, legions of people are longing to follow him home. But Dr. Brewer has heard it before. Five years ago, he discovered another person buried deep in prot's personality: Robert Porter of Montana. The mystery of Robert's illness and of prot's true origins lie deep within Robert's shattered psyche. Now Dr. Brewer must race against the clock to unlock the secrets of Robert's traumatic past and not only save his patient but maybe humanity.

"It's perfect for bedtime reading, and one I'm sure kids will ask to have repeated often - and maybe even get inspired by." - iPadinsight Albert Einstein famously put emphasis on the power of imagination and so does Riding on a Beam of Light. When Einstein won the Nobel Prize, he credited his own boyhood idea of riding on a beam of light with the spark that led him to his theory of special relativity. In this intricately illustrated storybook, lights-out turns into learning as we see the world from young Albert Einstein's point of view, with a sense of fascination and adventure reminicent of Harold from Harold and the Purple Crayon and Max from Where the Wild Things Are. At it's heart is a story about imagination and dreaming, with gorgeous illustrations that capture our grown-up hearts and our children's curiosity. Can young minds change the world? Einstein proved it and now Riding on a Beam of Light brings that message to kids in terms they can celebrate on their scooter. So, turn the light on and off, discuss the speed of light, and have your child imagining what young Albert Einstein imagined as a child. This is a book parents can begin enjoying before the kids understand language (or physics). "If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales." - Albert Einstein

Did she just die? Sasha was not sure floating in space above everyone. They didn't seem to see her but her body appeared in a glass enclosure in the great hallway for everyone to view including Sasha. Her body didn't appear to be breathing lying there like she was asleep. Feeling herself being drawn upward, she saw she was in what appeared to be a flying sailboat with a green creature that at first glance looked like a devil. We`nuk explained that he provided the ship for her to sail around the stars and visit different planets along with different galaxies for eternity. Sasha soon learns that when they passed a planet with some kind of life form, she could become one of them that had just died and bring the creature back to life. After each visit down to the planet, We`nuk would inquire as to what she learned. As time passed, Sasha became a spider, a vampire, a horse like creature, a medieval knight type person and a witch. Come join her

Understanding The Light Microscope

Author : D. J. Goldstein
ISBN : 0122886607
Genre : Computers
File Size : 48.37 MB

Understanding the Light Microscope consists of four original computer programs with an explanatory book. Author Dan Goldstein says using the programs can teach aspects of microscopy and diffraction often missed from formal courses, adding, "... what one non-mathematician has created should not be beyond the understanding of others!" The book aims to provide understanding at a level deeper than customary in existing texts and in a form accessible to microscope users, particularly biologists. It covers simple ray optics, the aberrations of "real" (thick) lenses, polarized light, and the influence of diffraction on imaging. The book can be read alone, but appreciation of its contents is greatly enhanced when used in conjunction with the programs. D J Goldstein was a Nuffield Dominion Travelling Fellow at Oxford University and a visiting Professor in Pittsburgh. He taught at the Universities of the Witwatersrand (Johannesburg, South Africa) and Sheffield (UK) while publishing research in embryology, histology, immunology, histochemistry and microscopy. Since retiring in 1989 as Reader in Anatomy at Sheffield University, he has been an independent research worker in biomedical science. Key Features * Aids insight into microscope operation and imitations * The approach is non-mathematical, yet in-depth * Enables lecture time to be replaced by learning assignments * Includes a help function for all four programs * The programs have been tried and tested by 2nd and 3rd year biomedical undergraduates
