Searching for a Mechanism traces the history of cell bioenergetics from the early notions of science in the Enlightenment through to the end of the twentieth century. Author John N. Prebble´s treatment of this history falls into five periods, from the 1600´s to the present day. The ´´bioenergetics revolution´´ has long been overlooked because it occurred simultaneously as the other major biological revolution of the twentieth century: the development of molecular biology. This book aims to provide the first thorough history of bioenergetics. The story of cell bioenergetics is primarily concerned with the synthesis of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), sometimes referred to as the energy currency of the cell. In fact the term ´bioenergetics´ was probably not introduced into the field until Albert Szent-Gyorgyi published a small book under that title in 1957. Despite the twentieth century focus of the subject matter, the history of this field commences with the work of those in the seventeenth century who sought to understand the process of breathing and passes through metabolic biochemistry concluding with the elucidation of the molecular mechanisms of key enzymes in bioenergetics. Although the story of metabolic biochemistry (which is often taken to include bioenergetics) essentially belongs to the twentieth century, progress in this area cannot be understood without recourse to previous centuries. Thus from the seventeenth century onwards it is possible to trace a path of early thinking which eventually laid the ground work for the dramatic success of twentieth century studies.
Just in time for the kickoff of the 2012 presidential campaign, Joe McGinniss, the author of the classic account of the packaging of a presidential candidate, The Selling of the President; of the acclaimed search for the essence of Alaska, Going to Extremes; and of the best-selling study of the dark family secrets of an American patriarch, Fatal Vision; presents his already controversial investigative chronicle of Sarah Palin as an individual, politician, and cultural phenomenon. Based on McGinniss´ on-the-ground reporting that began in late 2008 (which yielded an April 2009 Conde Nast Portfolio cover story) and continued with his return to Alaska in 2010, this book is a startling and penetrating examination of the illusion and reality of Palin - and a probing look at the Alaska and the America that have produced her, and the country she feels she is destined to lead. The Rogue delves deeply into Alaska´s political and business affairs and Palin´s political, personal, and family life to chronicle how and to what extent Palin and her beliefs, attitudes, and outlook will influence and even change life in America and the perception of America abroad. 1.

Some people say they have had experiences like this. Are they telling the truth? To find out, Kelly Milner Halls investigated stories of eyewitnesses from around the world. She explored UFO sightings, landings, crashes, aliens, and even a few hoaxes. She also interviewed several of the world´s UFO experts.

A bigger surprise is seeing proprietor Joe Regan a few minutes later, badly injured. It seems a potential killer thinks Jolie has something Joe was hiding. The normal routine of appraising houses and volunteering at the Harvest for All food pantry is interrupted by an SUV that nearly smashes Jolie, a break-in at the home Jolie and Scoobie share, and a terrifying kidnapping. Jolie needs to figure out who´s telling the truth and how far the thugs will go to find what they want. Only solving the puzzle will keep Jolie safe, protect a vulnerable Iraqi vet, and make sure everyone stays alive. But if Jolie keeps searching, her budding romance with Scoobie may grind to a halt. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan Gallagher.
