All magnetized planets in our solar system (Mercury, Earth,Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune) interact strongly with thesolar wind and possess well developed magnetotails. It is not onlythe strongly magnetized planets that have magnetotails. Mars andVenus have no global intrinsic magnetic field, yet they possessinduced magnetotails. Comets have magnetotails that are formed bythe draping of the interplanetary magnetic field. In the case ofplanetary satellites (moons), the magnetotail refers to thewake region behind the satellite in the flow of either the solarwind or the magnetosphere of its parent planet. The largestmagnetotail of all in our solar system is the heliotail, the “magnetotail” of the heliosphere. The variety of solar wind conditions,planetary rotation rates, ionospheric conductivity, and physicaldimensions provide an outstanding opportunity to extend ourunderstanding of the influence of these factors on magnetotailprocesses and structures. Volume highlights include: Discussion on why a magnetotail is a fundamental problemof magnetospheric physics Unique collection of tutorials on a large range of magnetotailsin our solar system In-depth reviews comparing magnetotail processes at Earth withother magnetotail structures found throughout the heliosphere Collectively, Magnetotails in the Solar System bringstogether for the first time in one book a collection of tutorialsand current developments addressing different types ofmagnetotails. As a result, this book should appeal to a broadcommunity of space scientists, and it should also be of interest toastronomers who are looking at tail-like structures beyond oursolar system.

John Berger writes: 'The pocket in question is a small pocket of resistance. A pocket is formed when two or more people come together in agreement. The resistance is against the inhumanity of the new world economic order. The people coming together are the reader, me and those the essays are about - Rembrandt, Palaeolithic cave painters, a Romanian peasant, ancient Egyptians, an expert in the loneliness of certain hotel bedrooms, dogs at dusk, a man in a radio station. And unexpectedly, our exchanges strengthen each of us in our conviction that what is happening to the world today is wrong, and that what is often said about it is a lie. I've never written a book with a greater sense of urgency.'

There is nothing more dangerous than a woman scorned, especially when she can turn you to stone... The first story of Haven features the origin story of one of Haven's first characters. If she's a villian or a hero is for you to decide when you read it. Welcome to Haven A story in the Haven Fiction Series, where authors tell the tale of the mythical city of Haven. While the stories are not serial, you can pick up any in the series, this is officially Story #5 Haven is a city in peril. Crime has increasingly become a fact of life as different factions vie for control of the city's vast power and wealth. The authorities are pressed at every turn, often too weak to respond to emergencies, almost equally as often influenced by forces with ill intent. The city is home to millions and attracts more, some seeking opportunity, some seeking escape, still others seeking something else. In desperation, some of its citizens have taken to wearing costumes and creating alternate identities to fight crime. In turn, the criminals have donned masks to hide their own identities, create alternate personae, or both. Haven, started in 1994 as part of a literary nonprofit called Anthology, through their magazine of the same name, is a unique and exciting storytelling opportunity for writers and readers alike. In 2009, Anthology asked Brick Cave Media to develop and promote the Haven series as a separate entity.

The Cold of May Day Monday offers an indvidual view of the history of Irish literature from its very earliest phases up to the present day, more or less, with discussions of major writers such as Friel, Heaney, Derek Mahon, McGahern, and John Banville. Robert Welch traces the roots of Irish literature in myth and legend and explores ancient and pre-Celtic deposits and remembrances; saga literature, as well as devotional writing; the bardic heritage and the cycles of tales of early Ireland; the importance and survival of folklore; and the later phases of Irish literature, from the seventeenth century onwards. Welch frames his study around themes and clusters rather than chronology, seeking to retain coherence by means of a sustained attention to the thematic strains. Substantial attention is paid to the figure of the Hag in Irish literary culture. The often deeply troubled relations between Ireland and England inevitably call for treatment as well, most notably in chapters examining the Great Famine and its consequences for literature and cultural expression. Yeats is one of the key figures, as are O'Casey and Synge, but the focus is on their literary output, not their political experiences (though these are not overlooked).Robert Welch offers a readable account of a fascinating literary history, providing insights into the connections between Irish legend and literature, and accounts of the some of the best Irish writers of the twentieth century.

"There was this fierce knock at the door, my son came running into the house. All I could hear him saying was...they're all dead!!!" He murdered my daughters, my grandsons, my granddaughter, and left one grand son as the lone survivor of this horrible tragedy; then he killed himself. About the Book Finally, the passion t hat pushes to the next level is here. William Moten must write, to not do so is to steal from the world a very needed message. The message is that we are only passing through, we're not here to stay. The trials that we face should never force us to the point of quitting. If we forget that we are on the journey that God has mapped out, we will not understand how we can make it through. This book contains poetry and a story of how a little country boy made it through a very tough life. In his adulthood, just when he thought that he was on the winning side, something terrible happened, there was a mass murder. He states in his book, "Fate dealt me an unclear blow. I was confused and hurt, wanting to do something to bring my loved ones back. I wanted to wake up the next day and find that it was all a dream. Finally I came to grips with reality. My refuge is in knowing that I'm just passing through, going somewhere that must be better than here. Everyday I tell myself to hold on to the steering wheel while on this journey and when the road gets rough and bumpy don't try to exit off, just keep repeating to yourself I'm just passing through." 1 Peter 5:10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered awhile, make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle you.
