2am Thoughts: 'a Journey Of Nostalgia' Courtney Peppernell, Author Of Pillow Thoughts

by Makenzie Campbell

I met you at dusk. We loved till midnight. Then, you left me. 2am found me at my lowest. When the sun came up, I dried my tears, found my strength, and went on with my day. The poetry of 2am Thoughts condenses an entire relationship with its untamed emotions and experiences to a single day. As the long hours of the night drag on, so does the love, heartache, and loss. When the dawn breaks, the morning sun brings acceptance, healing, and recovery.

3 de julio de 1898. El fin del imperio español

by Tomás Pérez Vejo

Una colección única que cuenta nuestro largo siglo xx en siete libros para siete fechas clave. No todos los días son iguales. Solemos abordar la historia a partir de arcos de tiempo dilatados. Pero ¿qué sucede si, por una vez, centramos la atención en los instantes concretos que más han marcado nuestro pasado colectivo? Los protagonistas, sus acciones, sus emociones, sus deseos, sus dudas y sus errores pasan al centro del relato, irrumpen con la fuerza de la imprevisibilidad, y los revivimos como si fuera la primera vez. En esta novedosa colección, algunos de los mejores historiadores nos muestran que nada puede darse por sentado, y cómo ciertos acontecimientos pueden dejar un rastro profundo en un país. El 3 de julio de 1898, la breve y desastrosa batalla de Santiago (343 muertos, 151 heridos, 1.889 prisioneros y 6 barcos embarrancados o hundidos del lado español; un muerto, dosheridos y ningún barco hundido del estadounidense) certificó la derrota española en la guerra de Cuba, marcó el fin del Imperio español y hundió al país en una crisis que definiría el siglo XX. El Desastre del 98, como demuestra el profesor Pérez Vejo en este iluminador libro, es más una idea que una fecha, y permite tantas lecturas que no es exagerado afirmar que en él se encierran casi todas las claves de la historia contemporánea de España. La crítica ha dicho sobre la colección:«Una serie para tener muy en cuenta.» Manuel Rodríguez Rivero, Babelia, El País «Una historia en la que los protagonistas son las personas, los individuos y no tanto la abrumadora y fría erudición de los hechos y los datos.»Fernando Prieto Arellano, La Vanguardia

3D Printing in Medicine and Its Role in the COVID-19 Pandemic: Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other Novel Medical and Non-Medical Devices

by Frank J. Rybicki

This book describes how “makers” with no medical experience became and remain clinically important because they utilized 3D printing to produce supplies for healthcare, including medical and non-medical devices, and to improve the quality of life for patients with COVID-19 and those who care for them. It shows how 3D printing became vital during the pandemic due to its broad availability and the inherently digital nature of the work that enables thriving digital exchanges and work in isolation. Subsequent chapters highlight some of the “maker” communities' efforts that made a difference in their part of North America. Each contribution describes the unique experiences, challenges, and successes.While this book is written and edited mostly from a medical perspective, additional input from medical engineers, administrators, attorneys, and public safety officials enables a broad perspective to highlight some of the ingenuity from the North American 3D printing community who responded to the initial case volumes of COVID-19.
