Origins by , Summary

"Haunting and memorable, the poems in this collection exhibit a sensuous command of language. They are written in the new formalism, a refreshing change from the spate of free verse that has lately dominated the poetry scene. In each poem, Whipple plays with assonance, rhythm, and intermittent rhyme to intensify his meaning."

Origin by Dan Brown Summary

The #1 New York Times Bestseller (October 2017) from the author of The Da Vinci Code. Robert Langdon, Harvard professor of symbology, arrives at the ultramodern Guggenheim Museum Bilbao to attend the unveiling of a discovery that “will change the face of science forever.” The evening’s host is Edmond Kirsch, a forty-year-old billionaire and futurist, and one of Langdon’s first students. But the meticulously orchestrated evening suddenly erupts into chaos, and Kirsch’s precious discovery teeters on the brink of being lost forever. Facing an imminent threat, Langdon is forced to flee. With him is Ambra Vidal, the elegant museum director who worked with Kirsch. They travel to Barcelona on a perilous quest to locate a cryptic password that will unlock Kirsch’s secret. Navigating the dark corridors of hidden history and extreme re­ligion, Langdon and Vidal must evade an enemy whose all-knowing power seems to emanate from Spain’s Royal Palace. They uncover clues that ultimately bring them face-to-face with Kirsch’s shocking discovery…and the breathtaking truth that has long eluded us.

Origins by Jim Baggott Summary

What is life? Where do we come from and how did we evolve? What is the universe and how was it formed? What is the nature of the material world? How does it work? How and why do we think? What does it mean to be human? How do we know? There are many different versions of our creation story. This book tells the version according to modern science. It is a unique account, starting at the Big Bang and travelling right up to the emergence of humans as conscious intelligent beings, 13.8 billion years later. Chapter by chapter, it sets out the current state of scientific knowledge: the origins of space and time; energy, mass, and light; galaxies, stars, and our sun; the habitable earth, and complex life itself. Drawing together the physical and biological sciences, Baggott recounts what we currently know of our history, highlighting the questions science has yet to answer.

Origins by Gerald Koenig Summary

By the late 1980s Steve Kantor felt he had spent the last trimester of his life tethered to the academic community of the University of Texas, at Austin. Following his undergraduate education he spent six years working toward advanced degrees while complementing his time with various teaching positions, mainly in the fields of computer science and information services. He married his wife Carol in 1984 shortly before earning a Ph.D. in computer science. In 1988 he transferred to the computer research department at the university. He continued to teach, but only one basic course to undergraduates. He valued student interaction and felt it added perspective to his research. Carol Kantor gave birth to two boys during the first three years of their marriage. Aside from helping raise the family and his work at the university, Steve Kantors only other passions were weekend golf and small private airplanes. He one day hoped to own an aircraft, large and comfortable enough to travel extensively with his family. Once the boys were in school, Carol was able to return to her career as a medical researcher, specializing in oncology. The Kantors lived in a moderate size, post war home not far from the university in downtown Austin until 2002. Steve Kantors research career started with only a modicum of success, but vaulted to unexpected heights within only a few years. Although such lofty measures were generally understood and respected by industry peers only, Steve had a unique ability to draw on his lifetime experiences, including academic, social and personal interests, to create what would be considered new and important applications for the rapidly developing tools of his industry. His percipience led to a torrent of discoveries. Rivals would merely call them software developments; but they were genuinely much more than that. Kantor envisioned and devised ways to program high speed, mega-memory computers to anticipate future needs, much in the same way a right fielded would use innate knowledge of the calculus to predict the path of a fly ball within a micro-second of an opposing batters swing. In the context humans playing baseball, this feat may seem relatively mundane; but it still lies well outside the contemporary abilities of man made, bipedal robots. Kantors accomplishments, though limited in scope to the field of communication, were in a class by themselves, not unlike those of a very talented right fielder.

Modern Macroeconomics by Brian Snowdon,Howard R. Vane Summary

Snowdon and Vane s book is extremely welcome. Indeed the authors examine, compare, and evaluate the evolution of the major rival stories comprising contemporary macroeconomic thought, but they also trace the development and interaction of key events and ideas as they occurred in the last century. Interviews with leading economists, one or two at the end of each chapter, also greatly help to shed light on this complexity. . . In sum, this is book which is very difficult to put down. Alessio Moneta, Journal of the History of Economic Thought It is not difficult to understand why this volume commands high praise from macroeconomic theorists, practitioners and teachers. It contains many interesting features that make it an excellent companion for both students and teachers of tertiary level macroeconomics. . . The authors present the material in a way that conveys to readers that macroeconomics is a living science , continually developing and still open to debate, controversy and competing policy prescriptions. In this respect it is a book that ought to be required reading for all teachers of the subject. It is also a valuable source of background reading for professional economists involved with economic policy making. Economic Outlook and Business Review . . . a wonderful history of macroeconomic thought from Keynes to the present, with an outstanding bibliography. It should be useful to undergraduates and graduate students as well as professional economists. Highly recommended. Steven Pressman, Choice Brian Snowdon and Howard Vane are well-known for their astute understanding of the main macroeconomic schools of thought and their skilled use of interviews with major figures. Here, they deploy a depth of scholarship in explaining the different schools and their key points of departure from one another. This book will be particularly useful to students looking for a clear, non-technical explanation of the main approaches to macroeconomics. Patrick Minford, Cardiff University, UK There are two steps to learning macroeconomics. First, to see it as it is today. Second, to understand how it got there: to understand the right and the wrong turns, the hypotheses that proved false, the insights that proved true, and the interaction of events and ideas. Only then, does one truly understand macroeconomics. This book is about step two. It does a marvellous job of it. The presentation is transparent, the interviews fascinating. You will enjoy, and you will learn. Olivier Blanchard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, US In 40 years of teaching macroeconomics, there has been just one textbook that I have assigned year after year after year, namely, A Modern Guide to Macroeconomics by Snowdon, Vane and Wynarczyk. That altogether admirable book made clear to students what were, and are, the main intellectual issues in macroeconomics and did so with just enough formal modeling to avoid distortion by over-simplification. That book is now ten years old and the debate in macro has moved on. So there is good reason to welcome Snowdon and Vane back with this superb updated version. Axel Leijonhufvud, University of Trento, Italy This outstanding book avoids the narrow scope of most textbooks and provides an excellent guide to an unusually broad range of ideas. Thomas Mayer, University of California, Davis, US More than a decade after the publication of the critically acclaimed A Modern Guide to Macroeconomics, Brian Snowdon and Howard Vane have produced a worthy successor in the form of Modern Macroeconomics. Thoroughly extended, revised and updated, it will become the indispensable text for students and teachers of macroeconomics in the new millennium. The authors skilfully trace the origins, development and current state of modern macroeconomics from an historical perspective. They do so by thoroughly appraising the central tenets underlying the main competing schools of macroeconomic thought as well as their diverse policy imp

Origins by Paul Copan,Douglas Jacoby Summary

Origins turns much of what Christians learned in Sunday School on its head in a revealing comparison of the Genesis narrative to the competing pagan narrative of the day. Relatively few Bible readers are familiar with the world of the ancient Near East, centered in Mesopotamia and its most prominent city, Babylon. The culture, literature, religions, geography, etc. of the early biblical period dramatically influenced what was written and why and without an understanding of these elements, the purposes, meanings, and structure of the text are easily misread by modern readers and reduces the primeval narrative to a collection of Sunday School stories. Origins, while acknowledging the agendas of modern readers, remains on track in expounding on the ancient agenda. Paul Copan and Douglas Jacoby address the doubts of those who find stumbling blocks in early Genesis, facing the tough questions head on and providing biblical solution to many of the “problem passages.” Origins surprises and amazes all seekers, new believers, and veterans of Scripture alike as it devastates the polytheistic, pagan assumptions and proclaims the true God.

Romantic Ecocriticism by Dewey W. Hall Summary

Romantic Ecocriticism: Origins and Legacies is unique due to its rare assemblage of essays, which has not appeared within an edited collection before. Romantic Ecocriticism is distinct because the essays in the collection develop transnational and transhistorical approaches to the proto-ecological early environmental aspects in British and American Romanticism. First, the edition’s transnational approach is evident through transatlantic connections such as, but are not limited to, comparisons among the following writers: William Wordsworth, William Howitt, and Henry D. Thoreau; John Clare and Aldo Leopold; Charles Darwin and Ralph W. Emerson. Second, the transhistorical approach of RomanticEcocriticism is evident in connections among the following writers: William Wordsworth and Emily Bronte; Thomas Malthus and George Gordon Byron; James Hutton and Percy Shelley; Erasmus Darwin and Charlotte Smith; Gilbert White and Dorothy Wordsworth among others. Thus, Romantic Ecocriticism offers a dynamic collection of essays dedicated to links between scientists and literary figures interested in natural history.

Origins by Lindsay Buroker Summary

Are you still human if your father was a dragon? Even though Captain Trip always knew he was a little odd, he’s still shocked by the revelation that the elder gold dragon, Agarrenon Shivar, sired him. It’s time, however, to accept reality and learn to use his power, even if it alienates him from his magic-fearing friends—and the woman he’s come to care about. With enemy dragons threatening to kill or enslave everyone in his homeland, he has no choice. But even if he becomes a great sorcerer, it won’t be enough to fight off all the dragons threatening Iskandia, so Trip suggests a mission to General Zirkander. He wants to lead a team, with the scholarly Lieutenant Ravenwood’s help, to locate his sire. Agarrenon Shivar, once respected and feared by his own kind, may be the perfect ally for Iskandia—if Trip can talk him into siding with humanity. Just one problem: the ancient dragon hasn’t been seen for thousands of years, and Trip has no idea how his long-dead mother found him.

Origins by Lynn Robin Summary

"Our world is changing. It is already turning into a darker place. And darker still." The first step of the ritual has been completed. Only two remain. And time is slipping. It’s only been a day since Kay sacrificed his blood in order to save the world; only a day since Jodi rose to fight her greatest enemy once more; only a day since Aiden’s betrayal; only a day since Annabelle and Damian achieved their first step in the ritual of the Infinite Night. Realizing they need to take risks to keep the Infinite Night from falling, no matter the cost, Jodi, Kay and their friends have rallied the army of Insomnia to destroy the remaining two Stone Circles and plan to travel to the Circle in Miller themselves—but the entire world believes the Sleepwalkers are the enemy and refuse their help. While everything is already working against them, Damian ups the stakes when he invites two of his companions to assist him with the remaining steps needed to complete the ritual, awaiting Annabelle’s recovery from Jodi’s unprecedented attack. Jodi, however, has opened a connection between her and the Nightprowler. And she can sense Annabelle already growing in strength. Upon black shadows, the Night arrives, claiming the streets of Somnus and Reid, and possibilities start to look bleak until an unexpected invitation from an Insomnia soldier finds Jodi and Kay: they are not alone—an entire army is waiting to fight along with them in this war. As Kay struggles with his brother’s betrayal, Jodi with her growing connection to Annabelle, and both of them with their unspoken feelings for one another, they let the mysterious invitation lead them to the tropical city of Maina, where darkness lurks in the rainforest… and perhaps even in broad daylight. Jodi and Kay soon realize they are more than mere soldiers in this war against the Night—they are leaders; they are the voices that need to be heard. But is either of them strong enough to keep the promises they have made to the world—and each other?
