HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) refers to a large antenna array system designed and built in the 1990s and originally intended as a military defense project against Russian missile attacks. Some of the secondary features of the HAARP system however, proved to be more interesting than simply radar and communications disruption. By focusing resonant frequencies into the ionosphere, HAARP can create signals of extreme low frequency that can actually affect the human brain. The discovery of this technology has lead the military and the private sector to explore technologies that use resonant frequencies to effect how people think and feel. The human body is largely electro-chemical, and by interfering with certain frequencies scientists can alter how the human body will react. This interference can be used for positive aspects, such as meditation and relaxation, but they can also be exploited for more nefarious purposes, such as creating stress, confusion, and the sensation of psychosis or schizophrenia in a targeted individual. Featuring an exclusive interview with writer and researcher Dr. Nick Begich, HAARP and The Future of Technology looks at how research into electro-chemical reactions and frequency response has changed the ability of military operators to turn our computer guided world against us. 1.

While dogs get more credit, cats have perennially proven themselves to be every bit the equal of their canine brethren as humankind´s best friend. Angel Cats, inspired by a contest authors Allen and Linda Anderson ran to find the ´´Best Angel Cat´´ story, shows the often extraordinary ways in which these fascinating creatures have responded to human need. Stories in this collection of mini-memoirs feature Paprika, the kitten that may have saved a little Hungarian girl from invading Russian soldiers; the cat who helped a woman make friends in a hostile workplace; the cats who acted as ´´pacemakers´´ for a sleeping woman with undiagnosed heart problems; and many more. Interwoven with the stories are brief meditations as well as fun facts about cats, such as that cats purr at the same frequency that increases bone density and strengthens and heals fractures. An ´´Ask Cuddles´´ section answers frequently asked questions about the fabulous feline. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Gilmore.

A Russian author, playwright, and physician, Anton Chekhov is widely considered one of the best short-story writers of all time. Having influenced such writers as Ernest Hemingway, Raymond Carver, and James Joyce, Chekhov’s stories are often noted for their stream-of-consciousness style and their vast number. Raymond Carver once said, ´´It is not only the immense number of stories he wrote - for few, if any, writers have ever done more - it is the awesome frequency with which he produced masterpieces, stories that shrive us as well as delight and move us, that lay bare our emotions in ways only true art can accomplish.” In The Complete Stories of Anton Chekhov, Volume 2: 1886, Blackstone has compiled fifty-five of Anton Chekhov’s short stories: Art, A Blunder, Children, Misery, An Upheaval, An Actor’s End, The Requiem, Anyuta, Ivan Matveyitch, The Witch, A Story without an End, A Joke, Agafya, A Nightmare, Grisha, Love, Easter Eve, Ladies, Strong Impressions, A Gentleman Friend, A Happy Man, The Privy Councillor, A Day in the Country, At a Summer Villa, Panic Fears, The Chemist’s Wife, Not Wanted, The Chorus Girl, The Schoolmaster, A Troublesome Visitor, The Husband, A Misfortune, A Pink Stocking, Martyrs, The First-Class Passenger, Talent, The Dependents, The Jeune Premier, In the Dark, A Trivial Incident, A Tripping Tongue, A Trifle from Life, Difficult People, In the Court, A Peculiar Man, Mire, Dreams, Hush!, Excellent People, An Incident, The Orator, A Work of Art, Who Was to Blame?, Vanka, and On the Road. Anton Chekov (1860–1904) was the author of hundreds of short stories and several plays and is regarded by many as both the greatest Russian storyteller and the father of modern drama. 1.
