From a VICE magazine columnist, “a deeply entertaining—if occasionally horrifying” (Joshua Piven, coauthor of The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook) look at how humanity is likely to weather such happenings as nuclear war, a global internet collapse, antibiotics shortages, and even immortality. If you live on planet Earth you’re probably scared of the future. How could you not be? Some of the world’s most stable democracies are looking pretty shaky. Technology is invading personal relationships and taking over jobs. Relations among the three superpowers—the US, China, and Russia—are growing more complicated and dangerous. A person watching the news has to wonder: is it safe to go out there or not? Taking inspiration from his virally popular VICE column “How Scared Should I Be?,” Mike Pearl games out many of the “could it really happen?” scenarios we’ve all speculated about, assigning a probability rating, and taking us through how it would unfold. He explores what would likely occur in dozens of possible scenarios—among them the final failure of antibiotics, the loss of the world’s marine life, a complete ban on guns in the US, and even contact with extraterrestrial life—and reports back from the future, providing a clear picture of how the world would look, feel, and even smell in each of these instances. For fans of such bestsellers as What If? and The Worst Case Scenario Survival Handbook, The Day It Finally Happens is about taking future events that we don’t really understand and getting to know them in close detail. Pearl’s “well-researched speculations induce daydreams and nightmares and mark [him] as one of his generation’s most interesting writers” (Alec Ross, New York Times bestselling author).

The Christian gospel, says Brueggemann, is too easily preached and heard. Too often technical reason and excessive religious certitude reduce the gospel to coercive, debilitating pietisms that mask the text's meaning and freeze the hearers heart. With skill and imagination, Brueggemann demonstrates how the preacher can engage in daring speech?differently voiced and therefore differently heard. This speech, as suggested by the Bible itself, is "poetic" speech, enabling the preacher to forge communion in the midst of alienation, bring healing out of guilt, and empower the hearer for "missional imagination." As an alternative to theological/homiletical discourse that is moralistic, pietistic or scholastic, Brueggemann proposes preaching that is artistic, poetic, and dramatic. The basis for the 1989 Lyman Beecher Lectures at Yale Divinity School, Finally Comes the Poet is a unique and transforming guide for powerful preaching.

I Finally Understand! is a personal weight loss story and guide to help others realistically lose weight. I'm a 47 year old middle class working wife and mother of two. My battle with weight didn't begin until I was 20 years old and started dieting to lose 10 pounds. Six years later those 10 pounds had soared to 40!! I share my story and experiences with traditional diets, exercise, etc., but mainly focus on the realistic, common sense approach that finally worked for me as well as the tips, tricks and philosophies I learned along the way. I also discuss the importance of developing a healthy mind and spirit and its vital role in achieving success. My system advocates a realistic, "socially forgiving" approach that promotes a positive, personalized mind/body/soul methodology. I lost 35 pounds in 5 months and have been able to keep it off for 20 years! About a year after writing this book, I was introduced to the Law of Attraction via Oprah's show on "The Secret". I'd never heard of the Law of Attraction before but was immediately captivated. I couldn't believe what I was hearing! I know this stuff!! This is the same type of thing I wrote about in my book!! I quickly realized I had, unknowingly, used many principals of the Law of Attraction before, during and after I lost weight and was even inspired to write a book about it! That's when I knew I had to publish this book! You'll find my story and its relationship to the Law of Attraction featured in the book, Living the Law of Attraction, Real stories of People Manifesting Health, Wealth and Happiness by Rich German and Robin Hoch.

Eager to save money, the team accepts the free trip. When they arrive on the island, the divers find themselves up to their necks in dirty deeds. To settle his mounting debts, Ray's boss has made a deal with a drug kingpin; and the Sea Dogs unknowingly become involved in the arrangement. The DEA soon shows up, and the Sea Dogs are stalked, used as pawns, and almost get their ship blown up. But their happy-go-lucky attitude and positive perspective see them through, and they manage to thwart the drug kingpin. Just when they thought the bad times were behind them, they stumble onto the lost treasure of Black Beard the pirate. Kidnappings, Black Beard's ghost, and hilarious mishaps plague the Sea Dogs at every turn. Will the Sea Dogs ever find peace and quiet in their lives again, or will their trip be the vacation to end all vacations?

Paul Marconi has always thought that Bellwood was a strange town, but also a boring one. Not much for an eleven-year-old to do. Fires are burning nearby, Paul's parents are obsessed with winning a bratwurst contest, and his best friend, one of the founding members of their only-child detective club, the One and Onlys, is about to acquire a younger sister, sort of undoing their whole reason for existing. But then! Hundreds of rubber duckies have appeared on the lawn of poor Mr. Babbage without any explanation. Finally! There is something that Paul and his friends can actually investigate. In the face of all these bizarre occurrences, Paul is convinced that uncovering who deposited the duckies will finally bring some sense to what has become an upside-down world. Soon the three friends have a long list of suspects, all with their own motives, but no clear culprit.
