This series celebrates some of the most popular sports played by girls, including basketball, soccer, and volleyball. Also discussed is the sports history, with a focus on the impact of Title IX, a section of the United States Education Amendments of 1972 that forbids gender discrimination in any educational program receiving federal funding. Girls now make up almost 42 percent of all high school athletes, compared to only 7 percent in the year before Title IX. In addition, readers will find information about training, equipment, and rules, plus profiles of notable athletes. High-interest content will engage even reluctant readers. Places a much-needed spotlight on often neglected female athletics and athletes. Will inspire girls and young women to get active, get involved, get competitive, strive for achievement, and seek gender equality.
A bitter young man that is totally disenchanted with America's government ekes out a living alone on a small homestead. Completely by chance he meets a young woman who also has no love for the government who made her a widow. They come together and realize the government has nothing to do with the feelings that each have for the other and soon they are wed. By happenstance they barely start their lives together when twin asteroids strike the Earth causing an incredible disaster.
Amazon Best Mystery of 2015
Navajo Tribal cops Jim Chee and Bernadette Manuelito, and their mentor, the legendary Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, investigate two perplexing cases in this exciting Southwestern mystery from the New York Times bestselling author of Spider Woman's Daughter.
Doing a good deed for a relative offers the perfect opportunity for Sergeant Jim Chee and his wife, Officer Bernie Manuelito, to get away from the daily grind of police work. But two cases will call them back from their short vacation and separate them-one near Shiprock, and the other at iconic Monument Valley.
Chee follows a series of seemingly random and cryptic clues that lead to a missing woman, a coldblooded thug, and a mysterious mound of dirt and rocks that could be a gravesite. Bernie has her hands full managing the fallout from a drug bust gone wrong, uncovering the origins of a fire in the middle of nowhere, and looking into an ambitious solar energy development with long-ranging consequences for Navajo land.
Under the guidance of their mentor, retired Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, Bernie and Chee will navigate unexpected obstacles and confront the greatest challenge yet to their skills, commitment, and courage.
See also 'Big Bang Blasted.' Tired Light theories have been around for nearly 100 years and provide an alternative to the Big Bang and an expanding Universe. In Tired Light, redshifts are explained in terms of photons of light interacting with the electrons in the plasma of space. The photons lose energy, their frequency decreases, their wavelength increases and they have been redshifted. The energy transferred to the recoiling electron is re-radiated as a secondary photon and these form the CMBR. Tired Light theories have previously been rejected since certain tests were said to discredit it but now these objections have been overcome and Tired Light is now at the forefront of cosmological theories. Furthermore, discoveries in 2015 confirm predictions that New Tired Light made nearly 20 years ago! New Tired Light was published in a peer reviewed scientific journal in August 2016 and the book follows this development. In 2015 a fast radio burst was observed and for the first time we had the redshift of the host galaxy. This enabled the mean electron number density to be determined as 0.5 m DEGREES-3 exactly as predicted by New Tired Light nearly twenty years ago. New Tired Light provides a mechanism by which redshifts can happen and using standard Physics we can now pick any galaxy and calculate its redshift from first principles and get it right! The book chooses two galaxies used by Hubble in his earlier 1930's paper said to show the Universe is expanding and calculates the redshift in terms of a photon - electron recoil interaction. We see that there is no need for expansion as it is simple optics. The book goes on to look at the various tests such as the Tolman surface brightness test which now supports Tired Light and supernovae curve broadening which now is in doubt. It finishes with a review of Zwicky's original paper on Tired Li
Butterflies and moths belong to the second largest order of insects with approximately 170,000 species worldwide.
