RRP $14.99

These fun, illustrated chapter books for 7 to 9 year old readers feature the adventures and misadventures of the Pine City Porcupines, a hapless team, including Chad their erstwhile bat boy who's got a huge baseball card collection and sat-happy Dylan, Chad's best friend. While the team, its league and the games are fictional, the baseball cards the bat boy uses to help solve the player's problems are based on real Topps cards. Book One: Just when they seem poised to get hot as a ball team, the Porcupines have a tough series against the league-leading Heron Lake Humdingers and the entire Porcupine staff seem more prone to mistakes on and off the field. This is especially true for Chad, who feels even clumsier and more awkward than usual compared to the Humdingers' League star who's been sent down for an offensive slump and shaky defense. Mike seems to mishandle or boot every ball that bounces his way. Superstitious even for a baseball player, Mike sticks religiously to his routine and can't figure out what he's been doing differently since the jinx began. Chad finds a major league rookie card and figures out the jinx, helping Stammer settle his nerves on the field and seems to settle his own nerves on the sidelines.

Excerpt from Washington and His Colleague: A Chronicle of the Rise and Fail of Federalism Washington was glad to remain at Mount Vernon as long as possible after he had consented to serve as President, enjoying the life of a country gentleman, which was now much more suited to his taste than official employment. He was weary of public duties and the heavy demands upon his time which had left him with little leisure for his private life at home. His correspondence during this period gives ample evidence of his extreme reluctance to reassume public responsibilities.

RRP $256.00

The founding, structure, and operations of the League of Arab States since its organization in 1945 are analyzed. In the first half of the book the author discusses the League's decision-making processes, considers regional dynamics, the polarization of power between Egypt and Iraq, and the impact of such major issues as Palestine on the League. He considers the League's techniques of cooperation with the United Nations and its specialized agencies, neutralism and nonalignment, and the boycott of Israel. In the latter half of the study, three major operational questions typical of regional organizations are examined: functional integration in cultural, social, economic, and scientific affairs; problems of regional security and peaceful settlement of disputes; and interaction between the Arab League and the United Nations.

The Majorana Sea

"A compelling reconstruction of an Italian mystery, with a skilful balance between reality and fiction that renders the text enjoyable and captivating." Teatro Helios Award, Passione Drammaturgia 2012, Pieve di Teco (Imperia, Italy). Ettore Majorana was an incredibly talented physicist and a deep, solitary man who mysteriously disappeared in 1938, at the age of thirty-two. Enrico Fermi considered him the greatest mind he never met and compared him to Galileo and Newton. On his disappearance the most different and fantastical interpretations have been written: he closed himself in a nunnery wanting to have no part to the atomic bomb; he become a Nazi collaborator; he was kidnapped by Russian 007; he committed suicide for love or others unknown reasons... This play is a literary reconstruction of Majorana's last years, accessible to both the scientist and the general reader. The play is in fact based on historical testimonials but is also full of human and philosophical issues. The key point of this new analysis is the unexpected discovery of the positron, a breakthrough which made obsolete Majorana's infinite-component equation and broke in two parts his scientific and personal life. For four years Majorana no longer frequented the physics department and preferred to live an isolated existence. In 1937, he returned to physics with a theory on the neutrino, his most long-lasting contribution to science; but one year later he took his 'inevitable' decision. The unknown final of his existence is depicted with a sort of 'path integral' on the possible ways he ended his life.

Now, because Chad opened his mouth, the entire Pines dugout is upset, and the team may lose to the second-to-last-place West Valley Varmints. Chad has to consult his baseball card collection to figure out how to help his beloved Pines pull off the perfect game.
