America’s beloved and distinguished historian presents, in a book of breathtaking excitement, drama, and narrative force, the stirring story of the year of our nation’s birth, 1776, interweaving, on both sides of the Atlantic, the actions and decisions that led Great Britain to undertake a war against her rebellious colonial subjects and that placed America’s survival in the hands of George Washington.<BR><BR>In this masterful book, David McCullough tells the intensely human story of those who marched with General George Washington in the year of the Declaration of Independence—when the whole American cause was riding on their success, without which all hope for independence would have been dashed and the noble ideals of the Declaration would have amounted to little more than words on paper.<BR> <BR> Based on extensive research in both American and British archives, <i>1776</i> is a powerful drama written with extraordinary narrative vitality. It is the story of Americans in the ranks, men of every shape, size, and color, farmers, schoolteachers, shoemakers, no-accounts, and mere boys turned soldiers. And it is the story of the King’s men, the British commander, William Howe, and his highly disciplined redcoats who looked on their rebel foes with contempt and fought with a valor too little known.<BR> <BR> Written as a companion work to his celebrated biography of John Adams, David McCullough’s <i>1776</i> is another landmark in the literature of American history.

<DIV><P>Far off the coast of California looms a harsh rock known as the island of San Nicholas. Dolphins flash in the blue waters around it, sea otter play in the vast kep beds, and sea elephants loll on the stony beaches.</P><P>Here, in the early 1800s, according to history, an Indian girl spent eighteen years alone, and this beautifully written novel is her story. It is a romantic adventure filled with drama and heartache, for not only was mere subsistence on so desolate a spot a near miracle, but Karana had to contend with the ferocious pack of wild dogs that had killed her younger brother, constantly guard against the Aleutian sea otter hunters, and maintain a precarious food supply.</P><P>More than this, it is an adventure of the spirit that will haunt the reader long after the book has been put down. Karana's quiet courage, her Indian self-reliance and acceptance of fate, transform what to many would have been a devastating ordeal into an uplifting experience. From loneliness and terror come strength and serenity in this Newbery Medal-winning classic.</P><P>In celebration of the book's 50th anniversary, this edition has an introduction by Lois Lowry, Newbery Medal-winning author of <I>The Giver </I>and <I>Number the Stars.</I></P></DIV>

Incidents of mass violence are not new and are unfortunately not rare, yet our avoidance of these realities is quite common. If we don’t acknowledge this truth about the violence present in society today, how can we be prepared to face it? This book takes a true look at what your options are for dealing with an active shooter event. Across the United States, businesses, schools, and communities may provide a video to watch or brief presentation to attend on dealing with active killers, often with the message of “run, hide, fight,” but the training generally stops there. What happens when we need to utilize the principles presented?<br /> <br />These conversations don’t bring us closer to surviving active shooter events, and ignoring the reality of violence doesn't keep us safe. This book endeavors to instruct you on all aspects of responding to an active shooter situation. You’ll learn about planning, evading, and finding a secure place to barricade or cover, along with unarmed fighting, considerations for using a defensive weapon, how to give life-saving medical care, how to interact with law enforcement, how to cope with the aftermath, and where to begin your training. It’s a guide to preparing yourself and those you care about for these events, but it’s only the first step. What you do with the information is up to you. Your safety is your responsibility!<br /><br />Aaron Jannetti is the owner of Endeavor Defense and Fitness in Columbus, OH. His team teaches unarmed and armed self-defense, as well as strength and conditioning. He holds black belts, instructor diplomas, and numerous certifications and has traveled the US teaching active shooter response at universities, businesses, and communities in more than 30 different states. He brings the knowledge gained from this hands-on work with students from all walks of life back to his team to challenge the ways they teach and bring the best possible instruction to their community.

ظهر منذ عدة سنوات تجمع اقتصادي دولي يسمى ((تكتل دول البريكس)) أو مجموعة "بريك" BRIC (التي تضم البرازيل، وروسيا، والهند، والصين) التي تحولت إلي "بريكس" بعد انضمام دولة جنوب إفريقيا. و أصبحت آلية مهمة لبناء نظام عالمي جديد وان مواقف الدول المشاركة فيها متطابقة حيال معظم القضايا الدولية التي من أهمها رفض النظام العالمي الحالي ذو القطب الواحد والعمل على الاستعداد لدخول العالم الى نظام عالمي متعدد الأقطاب .<br />و من المتوقع أن يكون لها دور قيادي للاقتصاد العالمي في مرحلة التعددية القطبية التي تلوح في الأفق و ستكون أحد نتائج التراجع الأمريكي على الساحة الدولية و كسر الأحادية القطبية. حيث ستكون الوجه الاقتصادي للمشروع الاستراتيجي العالمي للدول الصاعدة و يُمكن لها التحكم بمجالاتها الحيوية سواء القارية أو الدولية.<br />حيث أن دول منظمة بريكس تريد أن تأخذ على عاتقها مسألة تغيير هيكل الاقتصاد العالمي، لأن تأثيرها سوف ينمو. كما انها تنتهج سياسة التكامل الاقتصادي، بدلا من السير على نهج سياسة الاجماع التي تنتهجها واشنطن. <br />
