David Joseph
About the Author:

David Joseph is a veteran Air Force Flyer. While in the Air Force, he flew on the HH-53, HH-3, HC-130, C-141, and KC-10 aircraft, and traveled to every continent in the world. His travels and experiences provide unlimited material for writing.
He is the author of Korea x 2 and Silent Six, a military thriller Trilogy, set on the Korean peninsula, The Bully & Other Stories, and the two best seller novelettes, The Great Hijacking and Putin’s Shoot-down!  Both novelettes based on the Malaysian MH370/MH17 Flights. He is currently writing Korea Unified, the third book in the military Trilogy, and Inspirational/Thriller short stories. "I have twenty short stories and three novels in my head!"

Description:

In this groundbreaking historical short story, David Joseph brings to light one of the most shameful incidents in American history—“The Bellingham Riots” that, as the papers read, “wiped the Punjabi off the map.” The story reveals the plight of Sikh and Japanese in the U.S. who fought discrimination and established a proud legacy in the history of a country that is truly a “melting pot.” The story opens up with a fifteen-year-old boy and a young Japanese couple that flee Bellingham to escape the violence. “Punjabi” is a signature David Joseph story that begins with tragedy and ends with the reader in tears of joy. Using notes from a conversation with an elderly Punjabi man, David Joseph met in a café in West Virginia, and notes from interviewing elderly Japanese, David Joseph considers it an obligation to the Sikh and Japanese to write this story.

About the Author:

Travel for me was a passion from the day I discovered there was more world to see. I was never content to merely daydream. Nor would I be satisfied with the vicarious travel offered by movies and books. So I set about making travel feasible before I could afford it. Taking to heart an old saw my mother was found of reciting, I made "where there's a will there's a way" my personal mantra. 

Through reading and conversations with travelers, especially budget travelers, much was learned. And every trip I took expanded my knowledge base. Then I discovered the home-based travel agent opportunity. Being on the business side of travel opened the door to some spectacular discounts, including the occasional free flight or free hotel stay.

But stellar discounts were not always available. Sometimes the travel agent discount was no better than discounts available to anyone. So my quest continued. Gems were unearthed and, in time, I decided to share my knowledge in a seminar/class I created and named The Art of Discount Travel, a class that has been taught in Community and Continuing Education departments of dozens of colleges across the USA.

Description:

No matter your travel style, the purpose of this book is to help you substantially lower the cost of flights and lodging. The Art of Discount Travel: Your Guide to Cheaper Flights & Cheaper Nights provides a wealth of cost-cutting strategies and resources. Personal in style, the book is sprinkled with the author's instructive travel anecdotes and sense of humor. In addition to the many discounting strategies, a handful of workable strategies for securing the ultimate discount: free flights and free lodging is included.

Description:

This is the first comparative study on political parties in Southeast Asia covering eight out of the ten ASEAN countries. Feudal Brunei Darussalam has no parties and for Laos we could not find a scholar willing or allowed to join our group.
The book is dedicated to anyone interested or active in party politics in the region.

Southeast Asia is an economic power house of sorts with fledgling and often volatile political systems. Political parties and their leaders make decisions on behalf of more than 600 million people with a far reaching impact also on other parts of the world. This is why understanding the driving forces in and behind Southeast Asia’s political parties is important.

This book provides a fresh look into organization and internal mechanisms of the main political parties, how they function on the ground, how they hold together, and how their leadership systems work. Internal competition and candidate selection, campaign strategies and party finances, money politics and career opportunities are a special focus in the eight country chapters.

While showing the difference between classical party models and the reality on the ground in Southeast Asia, the book provides broad information on party politics in the region, adding a practical view to the vast and often rather theory-loaded scholarly literature. It intends to reach out to party members and activists, journalists and other political observers, and to anybody interested in Southeast Asian politics.

About the Author:

I grew up east of the 100th meridian, which meant that I had no inkling of what it would be like to experience a major wildland fire like the ones that take place in the American West. Quite a few years ago, an arsonist lit a fire near the small city I moved to in far northern California, one which burned 64,000 acres, demolished the rural health clinic my husband helped found, and destroyed 600 structures. The hair-raising stories from our friends who had to flee the fire made a huge impression on me—so much so that I decided research the phenomenon and write this.

Then the Lightning Siege of 2008 struck. Six thousand lightning strikes sparked two thousand fires, 150 of them in the area where I live, three of them right behind the ridge my home occupies. One night, after weeks of smoke and jangled nerves, the wind came howling down off the Oregon desert and every fire around us exploded. That night, my husband and I awoke in the middle of the night to find our bedroom flooded with orange light. When we stepped to the window, we saw that flames were dancing along the top of the entire ridgeline that formed our western horizon. We were evacuated for eight nail-biting days.

Living through a wildland fire was as awe-inspiring, terrifying, and daunting as I had imagined. Anyone who has lived through one of these elemental experiences knows this. I hope that this book can give those who have never had such an experience a vivid picture of what it would be like, as well as give voice to those who have.

I’ve written my entire life, starting in second grade; I studied Creative Writing at Wellesley College, where I graduated with a double major in English Literature and Biology. My children’s book, The Legend of the Flying Hotdog, a fable about the power of kindness, was published by Green Tiger Press and optioned for film. I served as editor-in-chief for the literary magazine, The Hot Air Quarterly, for several years. My first novel, The Last Good Fairy, first published as a limited collector’s edition won a New England Book Show Award for excellence in book design; it is currently available on Kindle. 

Description:

A burned-out physician whose stale world is crumbling around him, a homeless man bedeviled by a phantom loss, an alienated young girl living off the grid with her controlling father, a volunteer firefighter driven by a devastating mistake … Fifteen compelling voices tell the story of a raging, out-of-control wildfire.

By turns heartbreaking, triumphant, mysterious, and familiar, Altar of Fire illustrates how seeds of redemption, release, and hope can germinate beneath the ashes of loss. And it reminds us of the potential that lies within not only each challenge, but also each individual, no matter how broken or lost.

Born in NYC and having travelled and lived around the world I have been influenced by the works of James Redfields' Insights about syncronies and how  the people we meet and the events in our lives can show us a new way of living.  I like others of our time realize that our thoughts are very powerful and fear dominates our reactions in most things on earth. By changing from Fear to Love we can achieve anything. I tried to use local events from newspapers and historical events to illustrate these ideas.  The writings of Pople John Paul 11 have not only inspired me but give us great hope in the future of mankind and for me confirm the belief that we are on the brink of a universal spiritual revival. 

Description:

 What are your intentions? Are your  thoughts based on Fear and leading you to a destructive life or a life of love and purpose? Take a journey through different ages from the Russian revolution to life with the Carthars,to present day life in the UK.  While  Marchell and Johnny search for "Their Place" they encounter and try to influence the lives of those on earth and help them to understand our destiny -is to create heaven on earth. Along the way throughout all time they show us where there is love there is always hope and that Fear which destroys lives can be overcome .Or thoughts are very powerful, change is just a thought away.

“Ray intertwines key dynamics of the global environment and American society to explore how individuals and families will be forced to respond to intersecting global crises. This is a heck of a story with a large cast of compelling characters.”

—  Charles Hugh Smith, author/blogger, Of Two Minds

“Earth’s climate is unstable, and we are pushing it hard towards a sudden shift to a new state by pumping huge quantities of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. A radical shift in the climate between the years 2018-2028 as envisioned by Welch is entirely plausible.”

—  Dr. Jeff Masters, Director of Meteorology, Weather Underground

“We are already seeing (as predicted) outsized warming of the Arctic compared to other parts of the globe. There is growing evidence that we are already seeing weather patterns being influenced by loss of Arctic sea ice.” 

—  Dr. Mark Serreze, Director, National Snow and Ice Data Center, U. of Colorado at Boulder

“Ray has worked in the energy business for years and knows it inside out.” 

—  Chris Rafael, Editor, California Energy Markets

A Change in the Weather is a well-written and disturbing page-turner.  Ray has composed an edgy mix of fact and fiction that kept each of us up late each night until we were done. We looked forward to every chapter as he was writing them.”

Description:

A Change in the Weather follows the Russell family during the tenth anniversary of the disappearance of the polar ice cap, from March 2028 through May 2029. The Arctic has inverted from heat reflector to heat sink, and the jet stream has broken from its age-old trajectory to whip the globe like an unattended fire hose. Rainfall patterns shift the world over. Agriculture fails. The international economy collapses. Terrorism surges.

In the ensuing panic, the United States embraces President Roland Strauch, a Biblical literalist who heads the American Homeland Party and its armed militia, the Order of the Eagle and Cross.

Each member of the Russell family does what he or she thinks is right in an America where democracy and Christianity struggle to survive.  What each thinks is right couldn't be more in conflict.

Patrick launched Red Kite Prayer in 2009 as an alternative to the other cycling media sites. No less an authority on all things active than Outside Magazine named RKP the best blog in cycling.

His work has also appeared in Peloton, Bicycling, Road Bike Action, Paved and more.

Description:

“Why We Ride” is a different sort of cycling book, one that takes the cycling jones and spit-shines it so that it reflects why so many of us stick with the bike even as other elements of our lives may change. It’s a book that asks why we’re willing to get up early, to ride in the cold, the rain, even the cold rain, and somehow count that as a good time.

Within the pages are a series of essays, meditations and prose poems on what makes cycling an indispensable part of our lives, and why it is that even the briefest ride has the power to make the gloomiest day better. 

Cycling isn’t just one pursuit. A love of cycling can serve as the foundation for half a dozen different hobbies. Sure, there’s the riding—let’s never forget the childlike joy that can come from a good ride. There’s the camaraderie that comes from the shared challenge of a ride. There’s also the fascination for the machine itself, a device that can be as artful as it is elegant in its simplicity. What of the myriad ways a ride can keep our heads straight? From the stress-relief of a hard ride to the contemplative quality of an easy solo ride, cycling feeds more than just cardiovascular fitness. If it was just exercise, most of us would have been gone years ago. 

Most of what’s been published about cycling in book form either tells you what someone else did—biographies and surveys of the great races, or what you could do—fix-it manuals and guide books. Like a book of poetry, “Why We Ride” is a volume you won’t read just once. It’s a volume you’ll return to again and again, the sort of book you might read just before bed, one that will put the bug in your ear; as you turn out your bedside lamp you’ll be thinking, “I’m riding tomorrow; no ifs, ands or buts.” 

How many books will do you that favor? 

The book draws from work composed over the last six years, a period in which I produced my very best work. Much of the work has appeared previously in different publications, but if we hit our stretch goals (see below), I’ll be including some previously unpublished pieces.  

I’ve wanted to bring these pieces together in book form to reflect the permanence of our love for the sport. Equipment may change, but the reasons we ride are no different today than they were when we were kids. Cycling deserves at least one volume that will stand the test of time.

Mis versos son verdades incompletas, nacidas en los instantes de una mirada entre párpados intimidados; un acercamiento fugaz a la forma en que unos brazos yacen apoyados, al color brillante de un suspiro, a la exigencia de alegría o tristeza que guardan los pequeños gestos que apenas se perciben, a la lágrimas de la emoción estética...; afloran como un saber dormido en una idea que despierta.

Carol O'Connor
About the Author:

Pain is something Carol puts her hands on every day.  With training and experience, it is sometimes obvious that the pain that troubles a person has roots deeper than the pain that presents.

Sometimes, it is quite simply a postural fault, especially as we all crunch ourselves in front of computers for hours on end, whether we are working or playing. 

Carol has been doing hands on work with clients for over 20 years and became a licensed massage therapist in 2006 with well over 2000 hours of training and thousands more in experience and learning.  Her desire to help with her clients' healing probably stems from a family history of migraines, her mother's background in nursing and her father's in spiritual care.

Description:

This is a straight forward look at the most common, "every day" injuries and pains that tend to present in the offices of doctors, physios and other manual therapists.

Carol writes in a light hearted, clear style.  Medical terminology is explained simply and some of the most obvious reasons for pain are illuminated.  Headaches, knee pain, and back pain are common to many people.  This book helps you to pinpoint what's hurting and why.
