The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink by Maria Shriver and the Center for American Progress - released today by Rosetta Books and available as an eBook at NYPL - examines three major cultural and economic changes over the past 50 years:
Women work more outside the home, but still earn less than men.
Women lead more families on their own.
Women today need higher education to enter the middle class.
Featuring the insight of a power packed roster of big thinkers and talented contributors, including Hillary Clinton, Anne-Marie Slaughter and Lebron James, the book examines practical solutions surrounding the issues that face women and the economy.
In this new ebook, two scientists with more than half a century of experience between them explore the realities and myths of global warming.
With December’s U.N. Paris Climate Conference in the headlines, it has become increasingly difficult to differentiate climate science from rhetoric. In Lukewarming: The New Climate Science that Changes Everything, Pat Michaels and Chip Knappenberger explain the real science and spin behind the headlines and come to a provocative conclusion: global warming is not hot—it’s lukewarm. While that may not sound massive, it does, as the book’s subtitle notes, change everything. Climate change is real, it is partially man-made, but it is clearer than ever that its impact has been exaggerated—with many of the headline-grabbing predictions now being rendered implausible or impossible. This fresh analysis is engaging and enlightening to readers of all backgrounds, and provides an invaluable foundation of information to those interested in being genuinely informed about global warming and the solid base of facts behind it.
So there’s this book I wrote about an asexual girl (who is not aromantic) and her search for romance/love. Readers so far seem to think it’s pretty funny so I’d classify it as a romantic comedy :) If you’re interested in reading it, it’s available for free on SwoonReads. Please consider rating and leaving a comment (or even reblogging this post!) At the end of the selection period, books are chosen for publication. I can’t tell you what it would mean to me to see positive Ace representation in the romance genre.
(Trigger Warning/Spoiler: This book is New Adult and there is one sex scene. If you’re sex-averse or sex-repulsed or flat out not interested in reading sex scenes, please skip the end of Chapter 23)
Il legno sembra fermo, ma è sottoposto a pressioni interne che lentamente lo spaccano.
La ceramica si rompe, fa subito mostra dei suoi cocci rotti.
Il legno no, finché può nasconde, si lascia torturare ma non confessa.
Io sono di legno.

“Science is only the threshold to the paranormal.”
Victor Bellator is a young mathematician who has always made sense of the world by running numbers in his head. But his logic is challenged when he awakens in a rundown shack in the middle of the woods, with no memory of the past 72 hours—and endowed with the power of telekinesis.
