In her sixth hair-curling adventure, she lands stylist Marla Shore in the midst of a murder with the darkest of roots. . . There's no love lost between Marla and Carolyn Sutton since Marla left Carolyn's Hairstyle Heaven to open her own place. Still, it's a nasty shock when Marla enters the meter room behind the shopping center that houses both salons and stumbles over her rival's murdered body. Curiosity would have been enough to send Marla snooping, but then Detective Dalton Vail actually asks for her help. Marla's quest becomes even more personal when Wilda Cleaver, Carolyn's trusted psychic and new owner of her salon, insists that Carolyn's spirit is begging Marla to solve her murder.

There's her snubbed sister, who only inherited an unspecified, valuable collection, the chiropractor whose shady dealings Carolyn had uncovered, and the immigration lawyer who had suspicious ties to Hairstyle Heaven. With no shortage of suspects and a few more surprising twists, Marla's well-coiffed head is soon spinning.

It was a wedding no one would forget... Luke Skywalker was juggling martini glasses. Albert Einstein was dirty-dancing with Monica Lewinsky. And Zorro was arguing with Death himself.

Now Carnegie has more than a cutting-edge wedding to save. All around her, secret liaisons are unraveling, dangerous decisions are coming to light, and at least one criminal is lurking. With families to please, dresses to hem, and headlines to grab, Carnegie is discovering the dark side of love and marriage amid high and low Seattle society--and that while some passions may be forever, some are a motive for murder. . . .

Since 1997, the Institute of Medicine has issued a series of nutrient reference values that are collectively termed Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs). The DRIs offer quantitative estimates of nutrient intakes to be used for planning and assessing diets. Using the information from these reports, this newest volume in the DRI series focuses on how the DRIs, and the science for each nutrient in the DRI reports, can be used to develop current and appropriate reference values for nutrition labeling and food fortification. Focusing its analysis on the existing DRIs, the book examines the purpose of nutrition labeling, current labeling practices in the United States and Canada, food fortification practices and policies, and offers recommendations as a series of guiding principles to assist the regulatory agencies that oversee food labeling and fortification in the United States and Canada. The overarching goal of the information in this book is to provide updated nutrition labeling that consumers can use to compare products and make informed food choices. Diet-related chronic diseases are a leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States and Canada and helping customers make healthy food choices has never been more important.

1855: The Industrial Revolution is in full and inexorable swing, powered by steam-driven cybernetic Engines. Charles Babbage perfects his Analytical Engine and the computer age arrives a century ahead of its time. And three extraordinary characters race toward a rendezvous with history--and the future: Sybil Gerard--a fallen woman, politician's tart, daughter of a Luddite agitator Edward "Leviathan" Mallory--explorer and paleontologist Laurence Oliphant--diplomat, mystic, and spy.

Part detective story, part historical thriller, The Difference Engine is the collaborative masterpiece by two of the most acclaimed science fiction authors writing today. Provocative, compelling, intensely imagined, it is a startling extension of Gibson's and Sterling's unique visions--and the beginning of movement we know today as "steampunk!"From the Paperback edition.
"Scott Page has brought to our attention a practically important proposition: diversity of viewpoints is of the greatest importance in solving the problems that face us individually and collectively. Diversity among a group of problem solvers is more important than individual excellence. Page's exposition remarkably combines lightness and breadth of knowledge with rigor and evidence. "--Kenneth J. Arrow, Nobel Prize-winning economist"Scott Page knows more about diversity than anyone anywhere. In "The Difference," he shows why diversity matters, how it leads to better outcomes, and most importantly why achieving the significant benefits of diversity requires thinking well beyond traditional categories such as race, gender, or ethnicity. Knowledge of this book should be a litmus test for educators and diversity trainers--if you haven't read it, you are just talking metaphor. Stop playing defense and start playing offense by buying this book. "--Bill Miller, Chairman and Chief Investment Officer, Legg Mason Capital Management"Does diversity trump ability when it comes to problem solving? Scott Page shows that the answer is, at least sometimes, yes. You'd do better to add more diversity of perspectives to your problem-solving team than to increase the average ability of individual team members. Diversity in both experience and identity can spark a group's creativity. Page pursues the logic of diversity and shows why and when hiring people who differ can lead to a better bottom line. "--Ian Ayres, coauthor of "Why Not? How to Use Everyday Ingenuity to Solve Problems Big and Small""The book is brilliant. Page has a dazzling eclecticism. "--Max Bazerman, Harvard Business School
