"We can forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light." --- Plato Even after Dr. Martin Luther King was shot, his dreams are still alive and have been passed to the next generation to pursue freedom, democracy, equality, justice, peace, and prosperity. Thanks to his wake-up call and pains-taking efforts, modern society is much more open-minded and tolerant towards differences. A good leader should be a good reader; A good reader can become a good leader. Reading minds can be as challenging as reading books. This book documents the author Yuehai's book reading experience and his reflections upon politics, higher education, society, and pop culture etc. as well as his mind reading experience.

Set in 1916, three young women from the Scottish Women's Hospital are sent to the Russian front to support the war effort. Ailsa is working class and determined to make an impression on her superiors, Millicent is a self-confessed hedonist and Lily is searching for her lost husband. Unprepared for what they witness, each must find a way of coping as they fight to survive an experience that will change them forever. Poetic, visionary and startlingly written, Abigail Docherty's historical play is based on actual diaries of young Scottish nurses who experienced the Great War. Often darkly funny and raw in its emotions, Sea and Land and Sky is a gripping and sensual tale of youth, war, memory - and the power of love. Sea and Land and Sky is boldly inventive, blackly comic, and starkly savage.

Nick Tullius grew up in the 1940s and 1950s in the Banat region of Romania. He witnessed dis-enfranchisement, expropriation, and deportation of his compatriots, events that have been largely ignored by historiography. After his US-born mother dies doing forced labour in the USSR, and his father remains in the West, he finds his way with the support of a grandmother, completing high school and University in Temeswar/Timisoara. In the second part of My Journey from the Banat to Canada, author Nick Tullius describes his emigration to Canada, and his adaptation to a new social order, languages and customs. He finds a rewarding engineering career with the research and development subsidiary of a large telecommunications company, while growing with his family of four. He becomes involved in the introduction of semiconductor devices and software into telecommunication, and the development of Canadian, American and international standards in his field. He writes technical papers, and presents them at international conferences. After his retirement in 2000, Nick Tullius concentrates on family research and making the history and culture of their ancestors accessible to English-speaking descendants of the Danube Swabians. Several of his translations and writings are published at www.dvhh.org and www.dvhh.org/alexanderhausen .

Lucy Hellenberg is not your typical Pacific Cedar High student. Because in between hanging out with her friends, hating her hair and her math teacher, and trying to decide whether she should dump her on-again, off-again boyfriend, she has to deal with a father who refuses to go outside and a house that bears way too much resemblance to the set of The Munsters. And that’s not all. Lucy has just discovered that she’s a descendent of the lovely Lucy in Bram Stoker’s Dracula—and that vampires really do exist (right here at Pacific Cedar High!). Now she has to accessorize her homecoming dress with a necklace of garlic and learn how to drive while driving away vampires—without becoming their next victim.

This philosophical travelogue is a record of the joys (and frustrations) of disconnecting from our complicated, modern existence and living, at a time of climate upheaval, a simple life as close to nature as possible. Eager to know what life might be like if we choose another path, Leonard lived for a year in a cabin in the most remote Arctic settlement he could find and discovered how the paraphernalia of modern living conspires to eliminate our dreams. In the manner of a flat-earther, he went to the High Arctic not just in search of the ice edge, but also to examine the boundaries of our human psyche. No longer ruled by time and blessed by transcendences that flashed him the totality of life, he found harmony with the external world led to an inner dialogue that challenged everything he had known before. Whilst sitting aloof at the top of the world watching humanity having gone astray with our actions threatening to literally change the color of the map, he put the small and great into perspective with the aid of a poetry volume.
