Αποφασισμένη να ζήσει ανεξάρτητη, η Βικτόρια Βάις φεύγει από το ασφαλές καταφύγιο του Νέου Βερολίνου στον πλανήτη Άρη, έχοντας αποδεχτεί να κάνει πρακτική άσκηση στον πιο απομακρυσμένο διαστημικό σταθμό του ηλιακού συστήματος. Το να είσαι κόρη του πρεσβευτή της Μεγάλης Γερμανίας δεν είναι εύκολη υπόθεση και η Τόρι χρειάζεται να κάνει μια νέα αρχή μακριά από τους υπερπροστατευτικούς γονείς της. Όμως, δεν είναι εύκολο να ξεφύγεις από το παρελθόν σου, όταν αποκρύπτεις τα πιο σκοτεινά σημεία. Η Τόρι έπαψε να εμπιστεύεται τους άντρες από τότε που είχε μια σεξουαλική γνωριμία που άφησε σημάδια στην ψυχή της, και έτσι όταν ο Υπεύθυνος Ασφαλείας του σταθμού δείχνει να ενδιαφέρεται γι' αυτήν, νιώθει διχασμένη και δεν ξέρει αν πρέπει να ξεφύγει από αυτόν ή να αφεθεί σε νέες εμπειρίες.

Do you want a deeper, more fulfilling way of Bible study? Do you want to know God through Scripture--not just to know the teachings, but to have a relationship with the Teacher? Perhaps you want to begin daily Bible reading, but need guidance. Or you need a guide for family Bible study. Or your small group Bible study needs revitalizing. This meditative commentary is for you.There are many commentaries on the books of the Bible and workbooks for Bible study, but this series is different. It employs the classic Christian method of "holy reading" to help you hear the voice of God.Holy reading involves slowly engaging a short passage of Scripture, listening closely, reading repeatedly, praying the words, and perhaps sharing with fellow believers. God will bless us, our families, and our churches if we take the time to be still, listen, and do his word.Paul's Corinthian correspondence is a valuable resource for helping resolve issues facing believers today. Living in the dynamic power of the cross of Christ continues to produce a life of righteousness, peace, and generosity--individually and in communities of faith.

The focus of this paper will be on the 1 August 1943 bombing raid on the Ploesti oil field and refineries by an American task force composed of bombardment groups of the Eighth and Ninth Air Forces. The Ploesti raid stood apart from the rest of the war in the air. The idea for it, and the unusual tactics employed, came from the top; it generated from General Arnold's headquarters and was approved by President Roosevelt. Winston Churchill called Ploesti "the taproot of German might." It was not a part of any particular campaign, but was considered vital in itself. It was painstakingly planned and executed relatively quickly by the best-prepared and most experienced force available at the time. It was also fought with unparalleled bravery, the sole action of the war for which five Congressional Medals of Honor were awarded. The purpose in examining Ploesti is to first gain a complete understanding of the events leading to the planning for the raid, the raid itself, and finally the impact on the Germans in its aftermath. With this established, the intent is to assess the raid while keeping one fascinating question in mind - after building a doctrine for twenty years based on high altitude, daylight, precision bombing, why, in its first major bombing effort, did the United States "depart from doctrine" and conduct a low level bombing mission on Ploesti, the only low-level bombing mission conducted in the war?

The 100/442D Regimental Combat Team's Rescue of the Lost Battalion: A Study in the Employment of Battle Commandby Major Nathan K. Watanabe
This thesis examines the application of battle command during the 100/442d Regimental Combat Team's rescue of the First Battalion, 141st Infantry Regiment, 36th Infantry Division, the "Lost Battalion." As background, this study presents a brief history of the Japanese in Hawaii and the United States, of the formation and record of the 100/442d RCT, and of the battle to rescue the Lost Battalion. The contemporary concept of battle command is defined as per Army Field Manual 3-0, Operations (June 2001) and Field Manual 22-100, Leadership; Be, Know, Do (August 1999) and shown to encompass the World War II-era concepts of command and leadership.This study examines how the tenets of battle command-visualize, describe, direct-were applied by the 36th Division and the 100/442d RCT during the operation. Specific examples from the battle will illustrate both the use and neglect of the precepts of battle command and illustrate the importance of sound command and leadership techniques as well as the value of unit cohesion in present-day operations.

Get well soon isn't going to cut it in this quirky and poignant debut novel about a girl, her depression, an aggressive amount of baked goods, and the struggle to simply stay afloat in an unpredictable, bittersweet life.Every other senior at Cove High School might be mapping out every facet of their future, but Molly Bryne just wants to spend the rest of the summer (maybe the rest of her life) watching Golden Girls reruns and hanging out with her cute coworker at FishTopia. Some days, they are the only things that get her out of bed. You see, for the past year, Molly's been struggling with depression, above and beyond industry-standard teen angst. Crushing on her therapist isn't helping, and neither is her mom, who is convinced that baking the perfect cake will cure her--as if icing alone can magically make her rejoin the swim team or care about the SATs. Ummm, no, not going to happen. But when Molly finds out FishTopia is turning into a lame country diner, her already crummy life starts to fall even more out of her control, and soon she has to figure out what-- if anything--is worth fighting for. 100 Days of Cake is a quirky and poignant story of a girl, her depression, an aggressive amount of baked goods, and the struggle to simply stay afloat in an unpredictable, bittersweet world.
Gustav Glück, director of Vienna's Kunsthistorisches Museum, wrote as early as 1922 of Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) that his drawings were perhaps his ultimate artistic achievement. This founder of Secessionsstil and leader of the revolt against the Viennese academies was able to achieve greater freedom in his drawings than in his more laboriously executed paintings. While there are only about two hundred completed oils, the drawings number in the thousands, and are reported to have at times quite littered his studio. He himself considered them finished works, and often exhibited them alongside his paintings.Klimt's subject matter is almost exclusively the female body, naked or half clothed. For this he earned the reputation of erotic artist, and while he did not suffer the outright persecutions of his successors Schiele and Kokoschka, he was nevertheless subjected to the trials that a frankly erotic artist had to undergo in Vienna, where the everyday subject of conversation was the current love affairs of celebrities but where audiences were shocked by the sight of a dancer's naked legs. An issue of Ver Sacrum which reproduced one of his drawings was confiscated by the authorities. The drawings reveal above all that concern of great draughtsmen from Michelangelo through Blake the marriage of subtle grace and expressive dynamism that is the human body. Like that of these two past masters, Klimt's method is essentially linear. He knew, as they did, that line, rather than shading, the creation of volume or the use of color, is the natural medium for expressing the freedom of the living human form. As he matured as an artist there was an increasing awareness of this and a greater and greater spontaneity that approached, finally, "the lightness of a net of gauze."
