Twelve-year-old Jasper and his friends are the first group of cadets, called Bounders, to be trained as astronauts who use new spaceships to teleport, but soon are forced to go up against an alien society seeking revenge for stealing this brain-sync technology.
Jasper and his friends must find a way to make peace between Earth and the Youli aliens before the Youli destroy the human race in this finale of the Bounders series, which Shannon Messenger calls “richly detailed, highly imaginative.” Jasper doesn’t know how his life got so messed up. Was it when Mira decided to leave him for the Youli aliens? Was it discovering his former pod now divided in a war between Earth Force and the Resistance? Or was it when the Youli gave Earth an ultimatum: Join the Intragalactic Council or be destroyed? Now the Youli have invited Jasper’s pod to visit their world. For Jasper, this means a chance to get his friends back on the same team. It also means seeing Mira again, and hopefully convincing her to come home. But once on the Youli planet, Jasper realizes there’s something off about Mira. She’s hiding a secret, and the more he pushes her, the more she avoids him. Meanwhile, the Intragalactic Summit approaches, a meeting that will decide the fate of Earth. But Jasper has a nagging feeling that Earth Force will sabotage the Summit—and then suffer the Youli’s wrath. And how can Jasper convince Earth to unite if he can’t even unite his friends? With humanity’s future on the brink of destruction, Jasper and his friends must learn that they’re stronger together if they have any shot at saving Earth.

"It is very important that we come to a clear understanding of what kundalini is and what it is not. This becomes especially important in the light of the greatly increased interest in the West in the practice of various kinds of yogas. Much harm can come in the attempts to 'arouse kundalini' if there is not the corresponding practice of progressive freedom from egocentrism. Mary Scott has done an admirable job in clarifying the subject by delving into the context in which the notions of kundalini and chakras were developed. In addition to the sympathetic reading of Aurobindo and Woodroffe, who seems to have been one of the few Westerners who tried to understand the Tantras in their Indian expositions as expounded by the Tantrik masters themselves rather than impose extraneous theories of one's own, the author brings a great deal of common sense and her own personal experience of being a searcher as well as a psychotherapist. If taken seriously, this book should provide a great challenge to the general methodology of contemporary sciences. Highly recommended for scholars and lay persons alike." --Prof. Ravi Ravindra

Forty years ago, Buzz Aldrin became the second human - minutes after Neil Armstrong - to set foot on a celestial body other than the Earth. The event remains one of mankind's greatest achievements and was witnessed by the largest worldwide television audience in history. In the years since, millions more have had their earth-centric perspective changed forever by gazing at the iconic photograph of Aldrin standing on the surface of the Moon with the blackness of space behind him. He described what he saw as 'magnificent desolation'. The flight of Apollo 11 made Aldrin one of the most famous people on the planet, yet few people know the rest of the story. In Magnificent Desolation, Aldrin not only gives us a harrowing first-person account of the lunar landing that came within seconds of failure, as well as the ultimate insider's view of life as one of the superstars of America's space program, he also opens up with remarkable candor about his more personal trials - and eventual triumphs - back on Earth. From the glory of being part of the mission that fulfilled President Kennedy's challenge to reach the Moon before the decade was out, Aldrin returned home to an Air Force career stripped of purpose or direction, other than as a public relations tool that NASA put to relentless use in a seemingly nonstop world tour. The twin demons of depression and alcoholism emerged - the first of which Aldrin confronted early and publicly and the second of which he met with denial until it nearly killed him. As an adventure story, a searing memoir of self-destruction and self-renewal, and as a visionary rallying cry to once again set our course for Mars and beyond, Magnificent Desolation is the thoroughly human story of a genuine hero.

“Offers a strong incentive for us to get back to the natural world, stay quiet, reflect, and write to connect with a spirit that is larger than ourselves.”—Sheila Bender, author of Keeping a Journal You Love A heartfelt combination of spiritual discovery, environmental observations, and journal writing, The Wise Earth Speaks to Your Spirit offers readers a 52-week cycle of themed essays and related questions about the natural world. Entries on night and sky and parakeets, wind and mud and rain, snakes and tea and thistle, among others. In addition to folklore, myths, stories, and symbols connected to each theme, Janell Moon includes inspirational quotes from well-known writers—among them E. B. White, Ursula K. Le Guin, Gertrude Stein, and Mother Theresa—and shares her original poetry and personal experiences with the natural world. As she writes in the introduction, “It is my wish that through the telling of these stories, and the deepening of your own connections through your writing, that you will better enjoy a rainbow or a tree with angel’s wings in a storm.”
They say that a child is a product of his/her environment. So what are the odds of a boy--raised in a single-mom home, exposure to illegal drugs, juvenile delinquent sibling, fighter of grown men, and lack parental discipline and guidanceturning out to be a responsible, moral, law abiding citizen and asset to society? Statistics show that such child will end-up in prison, use and traffic drugs, resort to violence, and ultimately face a tragic death. Well, all of the above pretty much describes the world that I was exposed to and that I created for myself. But, by the grace of God, I survived the odds and statistics of the death prediction; and through this book, I look back with an out-stretched hand to help others overcome the powerful quick-sand suction of promiscuity and drug addiction. After realizing that the painful consequences of your actions have pushed you to the edge of the cliff, you come to this point in your life that you must make a change or make that final bad choice and fall to your demise. One of the reasons I turned to God is because I knew that I couldnt change on my own. Not only did I conclude that I had a great need for God in my life, but I was hungry for His will, His way, and His Word. And my new life in Christ is evidence that I serve a great, powerful, merciful, and mighty God. This is my testimony: Make no mistake about it, I am a different man. I do promise you, Uncle Steve that I will lay aside every weight and the sin that does so easily beset me, and I will run this race with patience. Hebrews 12:1 Preaching and teaching the Word of God to hungry and thirsty people motivates me. What stimulates me is knowing that something I said or done helped someone to conquer their fears, failures, and obstacles of life.
