All the predictions have come true except one: she´s about to meet the man of her dreams. Oh, and his name is Steven. Suddenly, Stevens are everywhere. Could it be the window cleaner, the rep, the manager of the coffee shop, or any of the men she´s met online?

As the 50th anniversary of the murder of John F. Kennedy approaches, it seems as if opinions or who committed the crime are as divided as ever. Instead of a much hoped for consensus as to who might have been responsible for America´s greatest unsolved mystery, no clear and near unanimous verdict has come forth. Although the general public continues to support a conspiracy in the shooting, solid group of researchers and notable members of the main broadcast media in America pounce on every opportunity to quell any attempt to find Lee Harvey Oswald not guilty. Those who believe that the case against Oswald was weak have steadfastly held to the feeling that no new evidence has come forth to seal his fate once and for all. In fact, if anything the case against Oswald has continued to crumble bit by bit over time. Although the case against him is mostly circumstantial, television networks like National Geographic, Discovery, and History Channel have produced documentaries which allow little room for questioning Oswald´s guilt.So what is fact? What is fiction? Searching the Shadows - Steve Airheart´s presentation about the assassination of John F. Kennedy - is a straightforward, factual, insightful, objective and exciting compendium of the myriad facts and red herrings in the case. Mr. Airheart discusses major theories about JFK´s death and all the while gives the reader little-known facts, thought-provoking comments, and other curios which lead into the labyrinth of gangsters and government. Searching the Shadows is a factual and logical investigation that is easily understood. Originally published in print in 1993 and 2000, this eBook debut contains a brand new chapter from the author that details the most recent developments in the JFK murder case. 1. Language: English.

Practical Computing for Biologists shows you how to use many freely available computing tools to work more powerfully and effectively. The book was born out of the authors´ own experience in developing tools for their research and helping other biologists with their computational problems. Many of the techniques are relevant to molecular bioinformatics but the scope of the book is much broader, covering topics and techniques that are applicable to a range of scientific endeavours. Twenty-two chapters organized into six parts address the following topics (and more; see Contents): - Searching with regular expressions - The Unix command line - Python programming and debugging - Creating and editing graphics - Databases - Performing analyses on remote servers - Working with electronics While the main narrative focuses on Mac OS X, most of the concepts and examples apply to any operating system. Where there are differences for Windows and Linux users, parallel instructions are provided in the margin and in an appendix. The book is designed to be used as a self-guided resource for researchers, a companion book in a course, or as a primary textbook. Practical Computing for Biologists will free you from the most frustrating and time-consuming aspects of data processing so you can focus on the pleasures of scientific inquiry.
The music of Rush, one of the most successful bands in music history, is filled with fantastic stories, evocative images, thought-provoking futures and pasts. In this anthology, notable, best-selling, and award-winning writers each chose a Rush song as the spark for a new story, drawing inspiration from the visionary trio Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart. Enduring stark dystopian struggles or testing the limits of the human spirit, the characters populating 2113 find strength while searching for hope in a world that is repressive, dangerous, or just debilitatingly bland. Most of these tales are science fiction, but some are fantasies, thrillers, even edgy mainstream. Many of Rush´s big hits are represented, as well as deeper cuts...with wonderful results. This anthology also includes the seminal stories that inspired the Rush classics ´´Red Barchetta´´ and ´´Roll the Bones´´, as well as Kevin J. Anderson´s novella sequel to the groundbreaking Rush album 2112. 2113 contains stories by New York Times best-selling authors Kevin J. Anderson, Michael Z. Williamson, David Alan Mack, David Farland, Dayton Ward, and Mercedes Lackey; award winners Fritz Leiber, John McFetridge, Steven Savile, Brad R. Torgersen, Ron Collins, David Niall Wilson, and Brian Hodge, as well as many other authors with their imaginations on fire. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Boehmer.
