The "Time Scope", is a Sci-Fi TV Set that can be tuned to any space and time coordinate and observe events, without sound, as they took place in the past. It has control buttons and dials for 'Power', 'Time', 'Space', 'Zoom', 'Speed', 'Scan' and 'Track'. It is used, among other things, by an American Senator to find out if his party's presidential nominee, a retired general is, in fact, a power-mad maniac with dictatorial ambitions. He wants to save his country from a rogue president who could cause immense harm to both the USA and to the rest of the world. This is the smallest of their problems, The bigger one spans the entire galaxy.Based on a novella by the same author: "Time Scope" it was rated highly by one Amazon reader: "What an intriguing concept! A time scope capable of looking into the past is a new twist on the time travel idea, and one that has plenty of possibilities. Once I started reading this, only duty could stop me. Like everyone, I have a few of those to slow me down, but the story stayed with me even when I wasn't reading. The only thing that held me back from a 5 star rating was that I feel like there's more story to tell, more stories within the story, and I'd love to read an extended version. Every character in the story had elements that could be further explored." - So I did what she has asked for. The result is this novel.
In the summer of 1969, a federal district court in Denver, Colorado, heard arguments in one of the nation’s first explicitly environmental cases, in which the Defenders of Florissant, Inc. opposed real estate interests intent on developing lands containing an extraordinary set of ancient fossils. This book, the first account of the fight to preserve the Florissant fossil beds, tells a story of environmental activism that remains little known more than forty years after the coalition’s victory. The principal author, Estella Leopold, was a major participant in the process.

Do you ever wonder if people know the meaning of the words they speak? When you hear someone say they saw a “bad ride,” do they mean they saw a broken-down vehicle? Maybe the roller coaster at the amusement park wasn’t operational. If you say your alarm is “going off,” is it making some audible alert to wake you, or is it having a temper tantrum? How do I really know what you mean? Many factors go into determining the meaning of words and phrases communicated to the listener. Knowing this, when I hear someone say they “got saved,” if I don’t know their understanding of the term, I have to wonder what they mean. Here I try to explore what people mean when they use this common phrase heard in the Baptist churches of the American South. It is a serious question with eternal consequences: “What do you mean you got saved?”

For more than 50 years, low-cost antimalarial drugs silently saved millions of lives and cured billions of debilitating infections. Today, however, these drugs no longer work against the deadliest form of malaria that exists throughout the world. Malaria deaths in sub-Saharan Africaâ€"currently just over one million per yearâ€"are rising because of increased resistance to the old, inexpensive drugs. Although effective new drugs called â€œartemisininsâ€ are available, they are unaffordable for the majority of the affected population, even at a cost of one dollar per course. Saving Lives, Buying Time: Economics of Malaria Drugs in an Age of Resistance examines the history of malaria treatments, provides an overview of the current drug crisis, and offers recommendations on maximizing access to and effectiveness of antimalarial drugs. The book finds that most people in endemic countries will not have access to currently effective combination treatments, which should include an artemisinin, without financing from the global community. Without funding for effective treatment, malaria mortality could double over the next 10 to 20 years and transmission will intensify.
