Numbercaste
Numbercaste
Numbercaste, Yudhanjaya Wijeratne’s debut novel, heralds the birth of a compelling new voice in Sri Lankan fiction. The book is also important for another reason – it is the first sci-fi novel by a Sri Lankan author that can hold its own amongst others published around the world. Google sci-fi and Sri Lanka and the name of a prominent British author, who made Sri Lanka his second home, dominates search results. Wijeratne is the first serious voice to enter this genre in English from the island, and this alone recommends a reading of the novel. Good intentions alone though, a good read do not make. Wijeratne’s short-story titled ‘The Slow Sad Suicide of Rohan Wijeratne’, published earlier this year, climbed the best-selling charts on Amazon. I hadn’t read it when I received my copy of Numbercaste, before, as it turned out, the author himself had received his own copies. I am glad for this fact, because the only writing of the author I was familiar with were musings on his blog, and in particular, work around two key elections in Sri Lanka in 2015 where his use of data analytics highlighted key developments in how leading candidates and political groupings gained or lost traction amongst a younger voting bloc in the country. Wijeratne’s ability to adroitly splice through the complexity of real, contemporary world affairs and politics is reflected in his fiction.

Numbercaste is set around sixty years in the future. This to me is key to its appeal. Things like inter-stellar travel will not be a fact of life in the next century. And yet, around six decades gives the author a fertile playground around how our current fascination with technology will play out. It’s a good, grounded approach. The author plays to his strengths, and the resulting writing is eminently readable. The novel navigates, with an impressive fluidity and authority, key developments around, inter alia, fin-tech, artificial intelligence, machine learning and what is even today a clear bent of polity and society to sacrifice privacy for convenience, democracy for security and accountability for efficient, effective service delivery. As with the best sci-fi, the future is a tart commentary on the present, and presents a mirror to reflect on things we do and countenance in real life today, that seed key fictional developments and leitmotifs in the book. Wijeratne’s novel traverses a short arc of a few decades, and in that sense, is less ambitious than most writing in the genre, which in scale and scope are more expansive, with the narrative spanning a longer linear timescale. But again, the discipline to contain and control the (science) fiction is what defines this book, with just enough infusion of the imagination to elevate into the novel’s finely drawn out domain persons, products, places and processes from the political, tech, cultural and social world today that many readers who pick this book up will already be users of, familiar with and indeed, want to buy more of or participate more fully in. The author’s writing is logical and lucid, indicating a clear train of thought around where he wants each character, plot line, development and page to go. This is a level of intellectual rigour and discipline in writing one doesn’t encounter in older more seasoned authors, published more often.
The chief protagonist of Numbercaste is Patrick Audomir Udo, who by the end of the novel, hasn’t yet hit forty. The character’s progression through the book is also a coming of age tale, set in a world where power and privilege are being reconfigured, in the guise of egalitarianism, into what is a post-Orwellian world, where the Panopticon isn’t visible, physical architecture or artefact, but in effect algorithmic surveillance, from birth to death, that one cannot escape – and worse, many have simply no desire to. Udo is finely drawn, from the start to finish, along with other key companions on his journey, most notably Julius Common, born Joshua Julius Gunesekara. A Canadian, to Sri Lankan parents. How the name changed, and the circumstances of Common’s birth, life and rise to unbridled power, form the substance of Numbercaste, told through the perspective of Udo. It is done well. Udo is an empathetic narrator. Common is anything but what his surname would suggest. He enters into the narrative in an ominous fashion. As we learn more, a sense of foreboding arises – but what Udo does is also to frame Common’s beliefs, values, interests and growing power in a framework where through will, violence and a technocratic zeal underpinned by algorithmic efficiency, citizens around the world, over time, willingly cede control of their lives to an idea controlled by a single individual. How this comes about is strictly in the domain of sci-fi, but the politics in the novel is surprisingly well-fleshed out, embracing key qualities of individuals and institutions already around, be they loved or reviled. On the day I read the novel cover to cover, Twitter threw up a news story around how armies of ‘cyber troops’ are being used ‘manipulate Facebook, Twitter and other social media outlets to steer public opinion, spread misinformation and undermine critics, according to a new report from the University of Oxford’. Without giving away plot details, this same thrust in a more evolved, sophisticated form can be found in Numbercaste, including other key, often ethically or morally disturbing technological developments that have made the headlines in the past two years alone. Entwined with characters that are finely drawn, and rooted very much to very human failings even as they strive for a greatness that outlives time and place, the book’s great appeal is in how all of the central characters resemble those we already know – either personally, or through the media.
A note on the production of the book is in order, since many who read it would not be friends with the author on Facebook. In a process that took many months, updates on Facebook meticulously documented the process of writing and editing from various locations, and in various stages of completion or frustration. What beyond the strength of writing makes this a remarkable book is Wijeratne’s dogged pursuit of how best to publish it. I was told that several publishers in Sri Lanka had turned down the manuscript because of its genre, and fears perhaps of poor sales. Scouring various online fora, trying out and adapting numerous publication platforms and technologies, or looking at the details of production around cost and delivery are not tasks that one would normally expect an author to engage with, much less master. But the dogged determination of Wijeratne to bring his writing to print is truly commendable, including a compelling cover design by the author himself that rivals anything a professional designer would have created. The quality of the final product, from colour reproduction to the quality of print, paper and binding, is quite amazing, for those of us used to low-budget, self-published books typeset and printed in the country.
However, going for it alone brings with it issues a professional editor and publisher would have ironed out. Some spelling mistakes, a few narrative loose ends and the repetition of the same phrases are sprinkled throughout the book, each rendered more visible perhaps because it is otherwise a remarkably well produced novel. More seriously perhaps, the author quite liberally and problematically includes in the book names of well-known personalities, technologies and companies based out of Silicon Valley, as well as fictional companies taken out of the pages of Dave Eggers’ best-selling book, ‘The Circle’. While this serves on the one hand to ground the fiction, it is also very jarring, pointlessly blurring the real and contemporary with the fictive and futuristic. Whether it is Elon Musk or Google, the Circle or Mark Zuckerberg, Wijeratne’s name-dropping suggests he was, for whatever reason, unsure of whether his own characters would be strong enough to stand by themselves, without very obvious reference to who they resembled, or combined features of. It is, stylistically, Numbercaste’s greatest and most glaring fault.
In what it captures and how it frames, Numbercaste owes a clear debt to Dave Eggers, Cline Ernest, and also, outside of fiction, to Eli Pariser’s work and more recently, the warnings of Tristan Harris. In TV terms, Numbercaste is more Black Mirror than it is Stranger Things – capturing a story about a dystopian future that is anchored to things we are doing, or are being done to us, today. It is an easy, engaging read and offers a critique of power, influence and control that is deeply resonant, relevant and indeed, very real. Wijeratne’s singular achievement, to my mind, is not just in writing a debut novel that is remarkably well-rounded and written, but in setting the bar for others to follow – showing by example that it is possible to write well, and enter a competitive, thriving global market of science fiction, with little to no support.
I unhesitatingly encourage you to buy Numbercaste and read it.
Steve Jobs. La biografía
Steve Jobs. La biografía
Steve Jobs por Walter Isaacson.

Si alguna vez has utilizado un producto Apple, estoy seguro que has quedado encantado por su fácil uso, diseño simple y materiales de primera. Steve Jobs era un perfeccionista empedernido, pudiendo comenzar un proyecto desde cero sólo porque algun mínimo detalle no resultara como deseaba. Sentía la necesidad de tener un control absoluto de sus productos, desde el diseño hasta su fabricación, ésto para así garantizar que el usuario tenga la mejor experiencia a la hora de utilizarlos.

Walter Isaacson hizo un tremendo trabajo, pero siento que en algunos aspectos se pudo haber hecho mejor. Por ejemplo, se abundó muy poco sobre su enfermedad y la vida de su esposa. Pero en general es una buena lectura, la recomiendo hasta a personas que no sientan atracción por sus productos, ya que en cierta forma también trata sobre superación personal, porque Jobs después de ser despedido de su propia empresa, no se dió por vencido, y continuó su deseo de dejar una marca en el mundo, así construyendo Next para continuar lanzando nuevos productos, y mas luego trabajando con Pixar, llevando la industria del cine animado a niveles jamas antes alcanzados.

En general, no le doy 5 estrellas por la versión en español, ésta traducción es pésima. Principalmente porque está escrito en castellano, como dirigido para un público Español, con muchas palabras que resultan dificil entenderlas hasta después de consultar el diccionario. Siempre he dicho que los productos deben consumirse en su idioma original, y en éste caso me arrepiento por no haber comprado la versión en inglés.

En resumen, si que recomiendo el libro y auque en ocasiones puede resultar agobiante por su gran volumen (unas 700 páginas en la versión en español), no deja de ser un "must read" para todo el que sienta interés por la vida de Steve Jobs y los productos Apple.

=====================================================================================================

English:

If you ever used an Apple product, I’m sure you've been charmed with its easy use, simple design and premium materials. Steve Jobs was an inveterate perfectionist, he was capable of starting a project from scratch, just because some detail wasn't as he intended to. He felt the need to have absolute control of his products, from design to manufacturing, this to make sure the user gets the best experience when using them.

Walter Isaacson made a great job, but i think in some aspects he could of have done better. Just to mention some of them, he barely talked about his wife's life and about the decease. But in general it's a great reading, I recommend it, even if you're not interested in Apple products, because in some way it's about personal growth. After being fired from the company he created, he didn't give up, he continued trying to leave a mark on this world, creating a new company (Next) and making new products, and then working with Pixar, taking the animation industry to another level.

In general, I don't rate it with 5 stars because of the Spanish version, this translation is horrible. First, because it was translated to the Spanish talked in Spain, like it was specifically translated for them, using words hard to understand, even after consulting with the dictionary. I have always said products should be consumed in the original language, in this case I regret for not buying the English version.

In short, I do recommend the book and even though you might feel overwhelmed for its volume (700 pages in the Spanish version), this is a must-read for everyone who feels attraction for Apple products and Steve Jobs.

Virgin Rebel: Richard Branson In His Own Words (In Their Own Words)
Richard Branson is a visionary! He is articulate (albeit dyslexic), caring, compassionate and what I would call a "class human being." He makes sure that his employees are part of the team and encourages playfulness on the job site.
No isn't in his vocabulary and how fabulous it is to know that someone like Richard Branson lives amongst us. What a light!
Spreadable Media: Creating Value and Meaning in a Networked Culture (Postmillennial Pop Book 15)
Spreadable Media: Creating Value and Meaning in a Networked Culture (Postmillennial Pop Book 15)
It's a little bizarre that a popular (at least according to Amazon sales figures) book about passing along media or commentary has gone over a month without having a review posted. I think it's because this is an ingenious, yet jam-packed book that looks at online participation and the sharing of information from a unique perspective that just plain forces you to think. This is not a quick read.

While there are plenty of social media books out that look at the "new phenomenon" of sharing as an organizational strategy or as platforms of tools as compelling new ways to share, the authors of "Spreadable Media" look more at the material itself that is or isn't being shared. What characteristics of materials make people want to spread them? What's in it for the sharer? When people read, hear or watch something that makes them want to circulate it, what triggers that decision? The authors point out there's nothing really new about this motivation. The passing down of keepsakes, family heirlooms, newspaper articles, scrapbooks, family trees, etc. has gone on for generations. First the photocopier and now social media platforms have just made it easier and almost instantaneous.

The main focus of the book is on the broadcast, mass-media business model of "stickiness" of content vs. the parallel concept of "spreadability." It's becoming increasingly apparent that if media doesn't spread today, it's dead--like a film/song/book/work of art/best practice no one sees/hears/reads/studies/tries. So while there's a loss of control in allowing your audience to manipulate and pass along one's creative effort, there's also an expanded opportunity that it will uncover new audiences and be more widely acclaimed than if you protect it and threaten users for "stealing it." Corporations, institutions, universities and other power structures are starting to recognize that.

Perhaps one reason "Spreadable Media" may be slow to generate reviews is in the sheer breadth of their analysis. My personal reason for reading "Spreadable Media" was to create company communities where members will pass along content to co-workers and customers to expand product knowledge and benefits and ultimately to increase sales. Some of the most insightful information I've read about this topic is indeed covered in this book. The authors portray "lurkers" (the bane of online communities where the vast majority of members who only consume others' information without contributing any of their own) as only learning and biding their time until they too understand the rules and start to participate. In Chapter 5 they even describe what makes materials sharable. This will help me to completely rethink the development of content rather than just to focus on why community members are either engaged or not.

The density issue comes into play, however, as they go through a variety of entertainment, mass-media examples about how and why we are all moving toward spreadability. These examples are interesting to consider but can be difficult to digest. There are probably few readers who have all these perspectives who can follow these various threads. So if the authors have done anything "wrong" in the book it is just the amount of commentary on how much our culture is changing to address ways that we learn across all aspects of our lifestyles. In summary then, "Spreadable Media" is a great book but prepare yourself for some pretty deep but original thinking as Jenkins, Ford and Green argue for the increasingly networked world we're all living in.

Introduction to Algorithms, 3rd Edition (The MIT Press)
Introduction to Algorithms, 3rd Edition (The MIT Press)
I think this is a pretty good book that is easy to read if you have a strong background in proof-based math.

Highlights:
- The introduction (Chapters 1-4) is really good and does a good job setting up all the fundamental concepts of algorithms. I think a lot of people tend to skip over introductions because they think they know all of it already, but this is an introduction that I recommend reading the whole way through.
- The book is a pretty light read (none of the math is too difficult) and each chapter is a good length.
- I think the material on dynamic programming and greedy algorithms was particularly enlightening, and if you read it the whole way through you actually learn how to prove that greedy algorithms work, instead of just being like "let's use a greedy algorithm because it seems right"
- I was able to copy a lot of CLRS code almost verbatim in my programming interviews and pass them.
- The figures are really well done and informative.

Drawbacks:
- The pseudocode has a lot of one-letter variable names, and while this follows the tradition of pure math, it also makes understanding the algorithms more difficult than it should be.
- Sometimes the pseudocode is not the "easiest" possible pseudocode (for example, merge sort), and I think it would be better if the authors presented a simpler version of the pseudocode first and then extended it to the optimal version. But then I guess CLRS would be even longer than it already is.
- The arrays are 1-indexed, which makes it trickier to convert to code. Also there are some sections of the textbook (the counting sort section) where some of the arrays are 0-indexed and other arrays are 1-indexed, which is just weird.
- I think the material on graphs, particularly the derivations, could be done in a more engaging and intuitive way. The derivations in Chapters 22-24 were a long series of small uninteresting lemmas, instead of a small number of harder, more insightful theorems. I found derivations elsewhere on the internet that were a lot more interesting and built more intuition about why the procedures worked. I feel like the rest of the book is pretty good though, so maybe all the graph stuff was written by a separate person who is not very good at explaining things.

soyond 1 Red 150W Car Power Inverter DC 12V to 110V AC Converter 3.1A Dual USB Charger
I ordered this because I'm too cheap to buy the mobile charger for my digital camera and wanted a way to charge the battery after a day of shooting while traveling to my next site.
To start with I did not use this in its stock configuration. The first thing I did was disassemble the case and remove the plug. I found a spot I liked in my car and cut a hole the size of the plug and installed the plug into it. I then extended the wires to install the inverter box to a remote location. I also removed the main power supply adapter and ran it directly to my fuse block.
I knocked the overall rating down for 2 reasons. The first is this is a power inverter and consumes a lot of power from the car. Its got good heavy gauge wires for the accessory port plug, unfortunately modern cars do not have the same heavy wiring to the port. Most run 22-24 gauge wires which could easily be over heated by using a device like this and I found no warnings of this issue. The second issue I had was the wire going to the 110 volt outlet was 24 gauge stranded wire. I'm okay with one or the other but the combination of both could once again lead to over heating issues.
I find that people see an outlet and don't give much thought to the power consumption of the device they are plugging into it, an outlet is an outlet right?! The case does list its limitations but none of the paperwork gives examples and unless electricity is something you work with on a regular basis you aren't going to know what those numbers mean or how to convert them to useable information.
Dark Shadows: The Haunting of Collinwood
Dark Shadows: The Haunting of Collinwood
Inspired by Henry James's classic "The Turn of the Screw," the "Ghost of Quentin Collins" plot has always been my all-time favorite "Dark Shadows" storyline. And this DVD, "The Haunting of Collinwood," is a very good distillation of that plot -- which originally ran for about ten weeks (about 50 episodes) on the original series -- to a single disc. It's not perfect, mind you. I regret that they didn't start with David and Amy first hearing Quentin's voice (which the viewer doesn't hear at the time, making it especially creepy) on the old disconnected telephone, which got the whole ball of possession rolling. And I miss the sequence where the writing appears on the mirror. But the DVD makes up for it with what it does have. The sequence with the psychic Janet Finley is especially good, as are the segments where Elizabeth Stoddard finally realizes the children are indeed possessed. and when Prof. Stokes discovers -- nearly at the cost of his life -- that his attempted exorcism of the house has failed. The bonus episode, revealing how Quentin died and why he's haunting the house (which, as it turns out, was negated when Barnabas Collins went back in time and managed to change history), is the perfect complement.

Overall, this DVD is well worth owning if you don't already have the original episodes themselves and either want to "relive" the story or experience it for the first time. The "companion disc" -- "The Vampire Curse," revealing the story of how Barnabas became a creature of the night -- is excellent, too. But if I had to choose between them, this one, "The Haunting of Collinwood," is the one I'd get.

I purchased these for a Family 5K night run. They all worked well. No broken parts or dead batteries. The glasses have a turn on/off button. We used them for a total of 6 hours and they all still had power. I placed the small paper marker back in between the batteries to preserve the battery life in case they were accidentally turned back on. We will use them again for another night run in another month. I only needed 12 but ordered the 20 pack because you never know if there are going to be duds that don't work or broken items. The packaging was great. Shipping was very fast. This is a great buy. Thank you for helping my family stay stylish during our fun run. Comfortable wear also.
Captain America by Ta-Nehisi Coates Vol. 1: Winter in America (Captain America by Ta-Nehisi Coates (1))
Captain America by Ta-Nehisi Coates Vol. 1: Winter in America (Captain America by Ta-Nehisi Coates (1))
Having completed his run with Black Panther, Ta-Nehisi Coates, takes his crack at a less obvious choice for his talents, Captain America. If I found this volume a little too heavy on narrative and a little low on action, I enjoyed it a lot overall. The art is serviceable, but not amazing. Where Coates shines as a writer is (a) his development and consideration of personal relations, which is first rate and (b) his focus on Captain America's place within comicbook history and the increasing self-doubt of American society. Coates elides many of the social issues he focuses on in his "adult" work, but nonetheless, allows us to consider, with Cap, the ways the hope and self-confidence of "the Greatest Generation" has been sapped. He highlights the growth of populism along with that self doubt, even while thinking seriously about the cultural and economic dislocation that lies behind it.

This is not to say that the book is sociology; it is a comic book and has its fair share of both goofy premises and butt kicking. But Coates is clearly aiming to give heft to this work. So far, he's succeeded in finding the balance. Here's hoping that he'll keep it going through the run.

Brad Thor entertwines real life scenarios with his plots. Amazingly insightful, his takes must be considered imminently plausible. Scot Harvath is a super hero who holds these stories lines together. At once entertaining also scarily predictive. I have waited to comment on the series to date. I have more to go and will read them all. I no longer need reviews, any more than Lee Child's Jack Reached series. Brad Thor is on the mark. Every American should read these and refer to, Bridgette Gabriel's page for corroboration. I could not recommend this series more. Read past the character of Scot Harvath and read into this the real crisis facing us. If you are a thinking American, you cannot afford to not read Brad Thor!
Journey to the Imaginal Realm: A Reader's Guide to J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings (2) (Nuralogicals)
Journey to the Imaginal Realm: A Reader's Guide to J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings (2) (Nuralogicals)
I just stayed up too late, because having reached the final third of this book, I couldn't find a stopping point. This is a gem. I greatly envy anyone who picks this up as a guide to their first reading of Lord of the Rings (LotR).

The author recently completed a doctorate with a thesis on the parallels between LotR and Jung's Red Book, and the experiences of Tolkien and Jung. The present volume does not bring in that level of depth psychology, but it references it at certain important points. Indeed, there is nothing here to cause any concern in the average reader. I hope to see a deep and meaty book based on Dr. Tarnas's thesis, but this is not it.

There are six illustrations by Arik Roper that are understated beauties. Using ink drawing in a cool style, they invite the viewer to contemplate and imagine their own details, rather than impressing their own interpretations on them. They are welcome additions to what is otherwise necessarily a left-hemisphere workout.

I love the structure of this book. After the introductory matter, it begins to track LotR book by book, lightly summarizing and deeply appreciating the action. In between these sections are interludes, giving more vital background on topics like Tolkien's languages, the writing (more like discovery) process, and so on. The balance is perfect. There were no chapters where I felt bogged down (like, say, I often do when slogging through the Dead Marshes with Frodo, Sam, and Gollum — but she even provides a justification for the pacing of the "Inner Quest" of Mount Doom); I felt like the interludes provided just enough sustenance that I was ready to resume the main Quest. The epilogue becomes personal and very moving. I definitely recognized my own experience in the account of hers.

I tore through this book, using all of my spare time on it for several days, but it is really intended to be read in pieces alongside a read-through of LotR. I could profit from gobbling it down because I have read LotR 27 times, but this book will be by me for number 28.
One Piece, Vol. 16: Carrying On His Will
One Piece, Vol. 16: Carrying On His Will
One piece is my favourite series for it's creative character designs , weird style, outlandish humor and simple yet deep/ enchanting story telling approach. Both visually and , this series has inspired in a unique way which almost no other comic/animated titles from japan have done before.

This volume brings us a new addition to the main cast of characters and a heartful tale !
Tony Tony Chopper may just look like another one of those annoyingly cute and adorable mascot characters that seem to be a traditional staple in these kinds of series , but he's so much more than that!
Just like the rest of the central cast he has a strong back story which explains his personality and the way he acts , his background story is even better than a lot of the characters around so far and is definitely one of my favourites.
Just see him as a human child, full of innocence and naivety ,what he is on the inside !
He is slowly going to mature as the story goes on, as he explores the world with his new friends !

This volume deals with the middle part of the Drum Kingdom sub-arc, which is one of the more enjoyable sub-arcs in my opinion. The highlight of the volume is definitely the background story of Chopper , as it's full of loneliness , friendship , heart , hope and tears. Very inspiring and touching , as are most of the tales behind the characters from this series.

One of the most enjoyable books that have been released so far in english , especially since there aren't any tedious fighting scenes that drag on too long in this volume.

My only gripe , is that the translated english version by Viz, seem to have a lot dialogue similar to the 4kids TV version. And 4kids can come up some pretty rubbish dialogue that doesn't fit.
The english version , because a lot of dialogue in this Viz translation seems to miss/ step around the point of a lot of the japanese dialogue in a lot of scenes.
But other than that, most of the english manga version is good enough, although the impact of some of the lines / jokes / scenes have been reduced due to dialogue changes.I think translators should be so creative sometimes.
Existential Journey: Viktor Frankl & Leo Tolstoy on Suffering, Death, and the Search for Meaning
Existential Journey: Viktor Frankl & Leo Tolstoy on Suffering, Death, and the Search for Meaning
Professor Micah Sadigh, psychologist and philosopher, poet and composer, challenges us to examine our own “Existential Journey” as we engage in living our daily lives. To that end, he introduces us to the theories of others, notably Viktor Frankl and Leo Tolstoy, who endured Suffering, faced Death, and pursued their Search for Meaning in the midst of severe blows of fate. Their basic premises urge us to live authentically, consistent with inner ideations, in order to discover the essence of who we are and our purpose for being. Dr. Sadigh gives dramatic testimony to the capacity of the human spirit to transcend traumatic experiences and to illumine the path of others in their search for meaning. I highly recommend this book to all who are wondering, “Who am I?” on their own existential journey.

Deeply Odd: Odd Thomas, Book 6
Deeply Odd: Odd Thomas, Book 6
** spoiler alert ** "In life, little happens by chance, and most bad hands we're dealt are the consequence of our actions, which are shaped by our wisdom and our ignorance."

To be honest, after "Odd Apocalypse", which is a much better book, "Deeply Odd" is somewhat of a disappointment, but thinking about it a while it actually makes some sense, because after the original "Odd Thomas" book, its direct sequel "Forever Odd" was also rather disappointing to me. Luckily that one was followed by the amazing "Brother Odd", so I'm guessing "Deeply Odd" is the same kind of transitional book as "Forever Odd" and we will get an epic conclusion of the series with "Saint Odd".

"Tom, you must be planning a trip straight to Hell City."
"I'm hoping it's just a suburb, sir."

"Deeply Odd" is more urban fantasy than fitting in with the previous Oddities, and feels a lot like an episode of "Supernatural". The Elsewhere showing up all the time was very Silent Hillish. It has less humor, and the atmosphere is not exactly darker but more solemn, which just might be me projecting my thoughts about the series slowly coming to an end. The final chapters are the best part of the book. Meanwhile we meet so many extra characters and witness so many unexplained things, we yearn for the original "Odd Thomas" about one ordinary guy in a small town, nothing more and nothing less. What we learn in "Deeply Odd" about the world, together with Odd himself, seems to throw all the rules we were told in the first novels out the window (dead Alfred Hitchcock suddenly talking even when "the dead don't talk") and it seems like anything is possible. It's no longer just a guy who sees dead people and solves crimes, but that hasn't really been the case anymore for a long time. Yet the contrast here is much bigger.

Then again, Hitchcock explained it himself somewhat: he never lingered, not when he was alive nor when he's dead, so he passed on immediately and now has been sent back from "service" to help Odd.

"I'm sure that your life is full of women who are drawn to you. Because they know or sense that you take a vow seriously, that you're faithful forever, that you recognize and cherish in good women what qualities you loved in the one you lost, that you respect them, that you care deeply about their dignity perhaps even when they don't, that you will never walk away from one in need."

What certainly took some getting used to, was Odd's new sidekick. Sometimes I had the feeling that Betty White must have blackmailed Dean Koontz to create a sassy character for her to play if the franchise ever takes off, the first movie adaptation finally comes into theaters and is such a success all the other books will be turned into movies as well. Edie Fischer makes sure Odd gets where he needs to go. It's like Odd is no longer in control of his own life and body, he's merely a vessel and performs tasks and even gets words put into his mouth as some kind of puppet controlled by a higher force, and Edie takes on the role of assistent to bring that puppet to the place of its next performance. Odd himself is left to reminisce about old times and to complain about the modern world.

There might be some insights into the identity of Odd's previous sidekick, Annamaria. She doesn't want him to diminish her after he says that sister comment, probably meaning she doesn't want to be viewed as merely human. Hitchcock asks why he wouldn't sound like Annamaria, hinting they have something in common. And judging by some abilities of her own, there's a good chance she hails from the same world Hitchcock has returned from, with the big difference that other people can interact with her too.

"Always questioning your motivations is a healthy thing, but fearing your capacity for doing the wrong thing, so that you retreat from many aspects of life, is a terrible error in itself."

Throughout this novel I was seeing things, little details, which I think are just a subconscious desire to link this story to others and which probably aren't really there, and I'm actually scaring myself a little with my own ideas of what might or might not happen. The lightning bolts in the sewer gratings made me think of the goblins' sigul in "Twilight Eyes", and what do I see a few pages further on but Odd himself mentioning this very fact, even naming the book by its title and claiming he's read it! Of course immediately I started to wonder whether Dean Koontz would write himself into this story in the same way Stephen King wrote himself in "The Dark Tower". (And I find it kind of insulting how he fails to mention Stephen King's "Christine" when he lists movies about demonic cars ...) We already had connections to the Christopher Snow stories with Moonlight Bay. And with this in the back of my mind, I started making other connections: the waitress in the diner reminded me of Deliverance Payne of "Tick Tock", the family living in armored seclusion reminded me of Penny Boom's family in "Relentless", the nine children, five adults and three dogs at the end of the story made me think of the ending of "One Door Away From Heaven" and probably some other Koontz book endings as well, like "The Darkest Evening of the Year" and "From the Corner of His Eye".

So, we have even more and more questions, no resolutions, and only one book to go. No matter what, I'm definitely excited about it and I can't wait for the chance to read this entire series back to back as a whole!

Nora Roberts Donovan Legacy: 4 books (Captivated / Entranced / Charmed / Enchanted)
This is such a great book, that I look forward to going back and reading these stories again like some that I already have, and I am impatient to read the rest of Nora Roberts' stories right now. Hot, Hot, Hot, love scenes, a well written, creative and intriguing story about family plus inventive, vivid characters, all on top of seriously wonderful love and romance. Each story is about one key person, usual in a family, or close group of friends, they are linked through intricate, messy links and it's almost like a movie you get the privilege of witnessing about these people's powerful, emotional, and often times painful journey towards falling in love. Roberts is one of my most favorite author's, and she doesn't disappoint in this series. Her unique style and classy, yet moving love scenes, paint a beautiful picture that leaves a person longing for something similar for themselves. All of that is combined into this fantastic series and make this book a "must-have"!!!! I didn't want to set it down....seriously!! Lol I was nodding off over my book on several different occasions. Worth the price and more to have a Nora Roberts book in your library collection!!!!!!

The Case Of The Baited Hook Erle Stanley Garnder - Pocket Books No 160654973 (1946_
The Case Of The Baited Hook Erle Stanley Garnder - Pocket Books No 160654973 (1946_
On a cold, rainy night in 1940, Perry Mason is awakened out of a sound sleep by a man who offers to give Mason $1,000.00 if he'll come into his office immediately. They guy gives Perry a name that the lawyer immediately recognizes is phony and after Mason agrees to come in, he calls the Drake Detective Agency and gets them on the job. Drake's people are so efficient that by the time Perry gets to his office, he knows that the mysterious caller is actually an architect named Robert Peltham.

Peltham is accompanied by a mysterious young woman who is wearing a mask and who refuses to speak, making it impossible for Mason to identify her. Peltham wants the woman to be protected against any legal danger. He removes a $10,000.00 bill from his wallet, cuts a piece off of it and gives it to Mason as a retainer. He gives the other piece to the woman and says that if she ever needs Mason's services, she will give him the rest of the bill.

Adjusted for inflation, the $10,000.00 bill would be worth just under $175,000.00 in 2018. (Actually, $174,847.14, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, but who's going to quibble over a hundred and fifty bucks or so?) Still, Mason initially refuses the case, pointing out all the problems involved in attempting to represent the interests of a client he can't even recognize. But in the end he agrees to the proposition.

Over the next several days, Mason sits around the office waiting for the other shoe to drop. In the meantime, he takes on a couple of other clients and before long, bodies are dropping, people are suing, and Mason still doesn't know what, if anything he should be doing.

The setup alone makes this among the most entertaining novels in this series. It's a lot of fun watching Perry trying to figure out what in the world is going on here and what he should be doing. In addition to a murder or two, there's also a scheming would-be heiress and a complicated stock sale that gives Perry an opportunity to trot out the Law of Agency, something that always spices up any mystery novel.

This is one of the few novels in the series that does not wind up in a courtroom. Things move so dramatically and so quickly, that Perry never even gets a chance to cross-examine anyone and expose them as lying fools on the stand. Still, it's a lot of fun and will appeal to anyone who enjoys this series.
Celebrity pick

It is only February, too early to say whether or not this will be the book of the year, but it does not require any prophetic powers to believe that it will be in that conversation. This is an absolute stunner, an unputdownable piece of social history, film history, cultural history and biography.

The premise is straightforward. This great film project brought together four individuals, the producer (Robert Evans), the writer (Robert Towne), the director (Roman Polanski) and the lead actor (Jack Nicholson). Each was at the top of his game and the film cemented their positions in the Hollywood firmament.

It was not easy. Towne's script was diffuse, convoluted and had a semi-happy ending. Polanski reworked it entirely (though he didn't take any credit for it). The score was a disaster and Jerry Goldsmith was brought in in the final moments to correct it. Faye Dunaway was difficult on the set and the principals were succumbing to various demons, some of them pharmaceutical.

The author argues that this is a marker on the Hollywood timeline—an art film in a world about to be taken over by blockbusters (event pictures rather than relationship pictures). On the horizon: executives more comfortable with television schlock than silver screen art and ultimately focused on the bottom line (Diller, Eisner, et al.).

Both the city and the industry were on the brink of a precipice. Eden (including its Babylonian elements) was about to be shredded. Directorial control would be sacrificed to the gods of the box office. A single personality, largely detached from the 'mountain'—Paramount Inc.—would no longer make decisions from his bedroom and strike deals with friends. Art was not yet replaced by CAA and ICM dealmaking, where the purpose of the exercise was the employment of clients rather than the creation of films, the latter operation becoming secondary or even tertiary.

The book is filled with gossip—personal, marital, pharmaceutical, medical—but it is primarily concerned with the creation of one of history's great films, the assembling of talent, the stages of the script, the stages of the screenings, the awards received, even down to the discussion of Nicholson and his agent in the limo after the academy awards, going over the details of what 12.5% of the gross actually would mean after the studio did its own math.

This is what I call a 'carry around' book. You read it until some commitment or obligation forces you to stop. Then you carry it with you on the off chance that you might be able to capture a minute here or a minute there to keep on reading.

One of my college teachers asked us if we had read THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV. Anyone who said 'no' was directed to leave class and read it immediately, lest they die suddenly without having read it. I would not be quite that insistent with regard to THE BIG GOODBYE, but I would say that if you like great film and you are interested in cultural and art history, stop what you are doing and read this book.

Despite one or two lapses (singled out by a NY Times reviewer) the book is exquisitely written. Don't trust that reviewer; trust me. This is beautiful stuff.

I'm not a huge fan of these bears but my class are and voted for this story over others. It inspired them to see what they can do for people at our local homeless shelter and to understand why it is important to clear out your stuff and "get rid of it". I could see on some children's faces the realization of what the bell ringing and the Salvation Army collecting money outside stores is all about too.
Our favorite part: they did not just donate the board games to the senior home but stayed and played them too. Awesome idea for a future outreach, we think.

RICHARD SCARRY'S STORYBOOK DICTIONARY A GIANT GOLDEN BOOK
RICHARD SCARRY'S STORYBOOK DICTIONARY A GIANT GOLDEN BOOK
We love this book at our house, my kids want me to just start anywhere and read through it. Words are listed like a dictionary, and each entry has the word, the word in different forms (if applicable), and then uses the word in a few sentences. The idea is that kids will learn by hearing the word in context. If the word has alternate meanings, it's used in each different way. Each entry has an illustration using Richard Scarry's Busytown animals, and they are often humorous. This book is a delight for parents and children...neither will be bored reading through the dictionary entries. As a bonus, the front few pages are a "cast list" of Richard Scarry's Busytown animals. It's too bad it's out of print!
The Trash Haulers: "One of the best adventure writers around" - Clive Cussler
The Trash Haulers: "One of the best adventure writers around" - Clive Cussler
There is an abundance of aviation-related literature - both fiction and non-fiction - availible on the market, a fair share of which deals with the Vietnam Conflict era, but perhaps understandably most of this fiction tends to deal with the traditionally more exciting roles of fighter pilots dodging SAM's over Hanoi, Cobra pilots strafing ground targets with their chain guns, or daring Huey pilots inserting or extracting special forces teams into hot LZ's.

With this in mind then, a book about a group of people airlifting personnel and supplies across the skies of Vietnam, piloting and unarmed and unattractive workhorse like the C-130 Hercules - a job so generally unglamourous and unappreciated that it lead to those who did it to be nicknamed 'Trash Haulers' (hence the title of the book) - is not a theme that immediately got mke excited, and honestly, this book spent a good few months sat on the shelf before I finally stumped up the willpower to crack it open and actually start reading - but when I did, boy was I glad that I had!

Primarily the story concentrates on Capt Mark Warren and his crew involved in tactical airlift on board their C-130, but also tells the tales of Wilson Tanner, a Medivac pilot on board a UH-1 'Huey' helecopter, as well as capible and determined NVA Colonel Tran Sang Quan - all of whom find themselves drawn into the events of 1968's crucial Tet Offensive and playing roles, that whilst completely independent to each other, slowly twist and wind closer together until they collide over the tactically vital US special forces camp at Se Pang.

The story includes many of the themes that have become popular in Vietnam-era literature, such as the often incredible bravery of seemingly very ordinary men and women as well as the stomach-churning cowardice of others, the frustration of having to deal with leaders who have no concept of the realities of life on the front line ('REMF's'), racism and predjudice, the temptation to exercise frontier justice not just on your enemies who you had often dehumanised, but also any ally you considered a liability ('fragging'), dangerous ambition that saw some risk the lives of others in the pursuit of personal glory, politics, physical injury and loss of life, and the importance of honour and duty - not to any grand cause - but just to the person next to you.

Its never dull, never drags, the featured characters are compelling and interesting, and manage to avoid falling into any of the usual tropes of Vietnam fiction across the various mediums; it expertly blends the mundanity that everyday life in Vietnam is well documented to have consisted of for the personnel who served there, with the brief, intense - often terrifying - periods of excitement and danger that punctuated it, is written with an empathy and style that can only be achieved by someone who truely knows and appreciates that which he writes of (author Herman was a navigator on a C-130, as well as a weapons systems operator on an F4 Phantom), and completely exceeds any and all expectations you might have - especially considering what at first glance appears to be its somewhat mundane source material.

A completely unexpected and excellent read!

Aux Portes de l'éternité (French Edition)
Je n'ai pas accroché, mais pas du tout. J'avais déjà essayé, il y a un an, de lire le troisième opus de cette saga, sans avoir été réellement convaincu par les deux premiers (pas mal, mais sans plus...). Et j'avais abandonné aux environs de la page 200. Là, je me suis dit que je devais faire un effort, que les critiques sur le web étaient vraiment excellentes, etc... J'ai fait l'effort en question, mais j'ai tenu jusqu'à la page 450 environ. Et là, je n'en peux plus, j'arrête une fois de plus. Les héros du livre, petits secrétaires de familles modestes sont tous au plus près du pouvoir, tout près des décisions qui vont faire vaciller le monde. Georges par exemple, est secrétaire de Bob Kennedy; Il est copain comme cochon avec le président des Etats Unis, à tel point qu'il lui laisse sa copine qui devient la maîtresse du patron de la maison blanche. Et qu'elle est enceinte et doit avorter.
Quant à Dima, à Moscou, il est le secrétaire particulier du président Khrouchtchev. SI si, je vous assure. Et même que le président soviétique lui téléphone pendant qu'il est en train de fêter un anniversaire chez sa maman.
Georges et Dima vont sauver le monde et réussir à faire retirer les missiles soviétiques de Cuba où se trouve d'ailleurs la soeur de Dima.
A la suite de cet exploit, Georges est envoyé par le président pour rencontrer Martin Luther King.  Je ne suis pas allé jusque là, mais je pense que c'est lui qui lui a soufflé "I had a dream". Sacré Georges !
Quant à notre petit allemand, il compte partir de Berlin le jour même où on construit le mur. Devant ses yeux. Pas de pot. Il réussit quand même à passer à l'Ouest en forçant les barrières de la frontière. Mais pas de chance, il a oublié sa copine... alors, il retourne à Berlin Est pour la chercher (vous en connaissez beaucoup vous, des mecs qu ont fui l'est et qui y sont retournés pour rechercher quelqu'un ?). Et elle ne veut pas venir, parce qu'elle est enceinte et veut rester près de ses parents pour accoucher. Ah oui, et la copine de Dima est enceinte aussi...

Bref, rien n'est crédible, tout est gros, on n'y croit pas une seule seconde. Et le charme qui a pu opérer dans le premier tome, voire dans le deuxième à un moindre degré, s'est complètement évaporé. Je ne ferai pas de troisième essai.

Bought this book for a 5 year old. Had heard Ulrika Johnson rave about it and it was reviewed on a radio book programme. The Mother of the little girl said that when she read it to her the child listened intently. Like it as Pippi the heroine is brave, independent and individualistic so a great role model. She is also a lot of fun!

I am nine percent of the way through this book and can't seem to reach the end of the backstory. My God. It's the dullest book I've begun in forty years. On o. Asio n, Peter James thrillers had. me reading into the wee hours. Of late he s become a pedantic nuisance, throwing up great globs of research and minutia which make for hideous and tedious reading. To have gotten so far along and still not know what the canned thing is about show remarkable if stupid patience on my part, especially that I now feel I've been trapped, listening to the.let boring tale a retired major general could consult with at an endless dinner party

Difficile d'évaluer des livres qui font partie d'une grande collection aussi connue.
Certaines histoires sont drôles, d'autres un peu moins, mais à 7 ans ma fille les adore alors les commentaires ne vont pas vraiment être très utiles... Ce qui motive l'achat c'est surtout d'essayer de les avoir tous :).
C'est donc un nouveau livre à ajouter à sa collection.
On aime ou on n'aime pas, seuls les enfants peuvent en juger vraiment (les histoires restent très simples et c'est un choix judicieux pour l'histoire du soir, ça dépanne bien lorsque le temps ne permet pas de lire une histoire plus longue).

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass (Word Cloud Classics)
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass (Word Cloud Classics)
As a child, I would often fall asleep listening to various adaptations of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I came to love the story and its characters, but have never, since entering adulthood, considered this book from a literary perspective. Perhaps, in my mind, it will always be a children’s book; after all, its protagonist is a child, and it considers such imaginative creatures and scenarios that it would seem out of place alongside the Victorian realism of its time. I was therefore surprised when I noticed this book, along with Carroll’s Through the Looking-Glass, on my reading list for this university term, but having now appreciated Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland as an adult, I realise my mistake: whilst it was once written for children, it has long since been considered an adult read, dealing with issues and themes that are considered in many other Victorian novels, such as Brontë’s Villette, and Dickens’ Great Expectations.

I’m going to be honest: I read this book in a day, and look forward to getting stuck into Through the Looking-Glass as soon as I can, because, when it really comes down to it, Lewis Carroll knows how to tell a good story. There’s nothing quite like these books when it comes to imagination, not even Terry Pratchett’s or J. R. R. Tolkien’s works. They’re fantastical, unbelievable, and somehow mesmerising, if only because they are just so different to what we are used to reading. So, whether you’re already familiar with Alice’s adventures or not, I thoroughly recommend you give this book a read, and see whether you think it is only meant for children. It’s very short, and each chapter is only a couple of pages long, which makes it easily accessible and a good read for when you only have a few short breaks in a day. Read it to analyse it, or read it for the sake of a good story; either way, read it!
The Fairy Tales of Hermann Hesse
The Fairy Tales of Hermann Hesse
As my first taste of Hesse, this collection more than hit the spot. I've been doing a lot of research and reading about the archetypal nature of fairy tales and this was why I bought the book. You can also see his progression both as a writer and as a human being. There are a few odd translations that made me question what was being said but nothing serious.
Over My Dead Body
Over My Dead Body
The earliest mysteries in the Nero Wolfe series are the best in my opinion, even though they tend to be the most politically incorrect. Women are 'baby dolls' to Archie. Inspector Cramer expostulates: "I don’t care if the background is ...Yankee or squarehead or dutch colonial, so long as it’s American. Give me an American murder with an American motive and an American weapon, and I’ll deal with it."

Unfortunately for Inspector Cramer, this murder investigation involves a whole rainbow of Europeans, including two Yugoslavian women who teach fencing to rich Americans. One of them claims to be Wolfe's adopted daughter.

My favorite character is the fashion designer, Madame Zorka, who manages to outwit both Nero and Archie.

This 7th mystery in the series is filled with scenes of sly humor: Archie falling off a fence in search of his "wife's cat;" Wolfe manfully turning down a ten grand bribe, even though it's giving him heartburn; Archie stumbling into a suspect's love nest in search of the elusive Madame Zorka; or Wolfe retreating into the safety of the kitchen when confronted by an irate Balkan babe.

The Christmas Thief: A Novel
The Christmas Thief: A Novel
The Christmas Thief, Mary & Carol Higgins Clark's annual Christmas fluff, is, as usual, as fast and easy read. It is, however, quite forgettable once you've done reading. Alvirah Meehan, the former cleaning lady whose life was changed when she won the lottery, and her husband Willy are heading to Stowe, Vermont, for a long weekend with their friends Nora Reagan Reilly, the detective novelist, her funeral director husband, their detective daughter Reagan Reilly, and her fiancee Jack (no relation) Reilly. Alvirah invites her friend Opal, a lottery winner who gave her money to a con man and lost it all. Besides skiing, they are looking forward to watching the cutting down of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. Packy, the con man who has been in jail for the last twelve years, and his two henchmen Benny and JoJo are also heading there to retrieve a flask of diamonds, his ill-gotten gains from his scam, from the giant blue spruce where he hid it before he was apprehended and sent to prison. Naturally their paths cross and, of course, Alvirah, Reagan, and their families save the day.

This is a short book, which isn't bad for an evening if there are no good programs on television or a brief car trip. I was not happy that we didn't see much of the Meehans or the Reillys.

Opal is a sympathetic character, as is Milo, the "poet" who helped Packy and his gang but didn't know he was doing anything illegal. Packy is rather nasty, so it's good to see him get his comeuppance. And the tree's owners are too obsessive about the tree and its fate. That just doesn't ring true.

I'm not sorry I bought the book, and the Amazon price was right, but it's nothing that will stick with me over the long run.

Review of Tales From Alternate Earths 2 ***

Uneven Anthology of Alternate History

Andy and Tina by Gideon Marcus. Andy and Tina are two Soviet cosmonauts caught in a continuing deception by their government. Lots of feelings on the part of Tina, the viewpoint character, but precious little action or decision.

The Matthew by Christopher Edwards. The Matthew is a ship which (in this version of history) took Christopher Columbus' brother to the New World under the auspices of Henry VII of England. Most of the narrative is taken up with the complicated political manuevering between the nations of Europe. Lots of tell, not much show.

The Emperor of the North by Rob Edwards is a tale of an alternate ice age coming upon us, and Finland's attempts to cling to habitability. The characters are as interesting as short story characters get, but the plot twist isn't much of one.

The Accused by Casia Courtier is a story of a girl accused of witchcraft in some future puritannical society. I found it to be unconvincing virtue signalling, and the ending deus-ex-machina

The Fairy Courts by Jeff Provine tells of a Victorian age in which fairies of various sorts are real and have been captured into a menagerie. Moderately interesting viewpoint character, but the plot demonstrates a flaw in the concept - were it that easy to set them loose to such damage, what would the world in which they live be like?

The Dust In The King's Library by Cindy Tomamichael was a ray of sunshine. A tale starting from a supposition that George III of England was cured of his ailments and sponsored scientific research, and the effects upon the future.

Pillars Of The Past by Brent A Harris is basically a melodrama that convinced me of nothing so much as that the author doesn't understand what causes political revolution or why tactics are tailored to fit a situation.

1969: A Space Oddity by Jessica Holmes is a tired moon-landing conspiracy trope.

Lueger's Wager by Bonnie Milani is a different take upon the notion of what if you could prevent Hitler from doing what he did.

Under Pressure by Leo McBride is a pleasant little whodunnit revolving around an underwater colony

The Goose's Wing by Daniel Bensen tells the tale of a 'Connections' type television personality trying to tell the tale of how gliders altered the path of the world he lives in starting in Andalusian Spain. I thought it interesting enough.
Ayesha Curry Home Collection Stainless Steel Nonstick Frying Pan / Fry Pan / Skillet - 12.5 Inch, Silver
Ayesha Curry Home Collection Stainless Steel Nonstick Frying Pan / Fry Pan / Skillet - 12.5 Inch, Silver
I searched all over for a set of pans and went back and forth over a good set of non-stick versus stainless steel pans. I ultimately went with this non-stick set because of the price ($40/set versus $100+ for a good set of stainless) and the good reviews found here.

The finish of the product is good and the surface coating seems to be pretty durable but I only use silicon, wood or plastic utensils as to not scratch it. I noticed that the pan heats up quickly and retains heat a lot longer than my previous pans. While it is a great thing, the ONLY downside of this pan is that heat then transfers to the handle. After ~15mins of cooking, the handle is uncomfortably hot.

If I can make a recommendation to the manufacturer, these pans could great benefit from having an additional two inches added to the handle. This would allow more material to absorb heat before it is difficult to handle the pan. I think with that added, this would be a 5 star product!

Skip Hop Baby Crib Mobile, Moonlight & Melodies with Projection, Safari
Skip Hop Baby Crib Mobile, Moonlight & Melodies with Projection, Safari
The good:
This mobile is very, very good-looking as far as electronic mobiles go. It is sleek and modern without being boring to a baby. The sounds are nice, the animals are cute, the hardware mounts well on the headboard of a crib.

The bad:
Right out of the box, this was squeaky as all heck. The crib is in the room with us, and the squeaking of the mobile rotating is enough to keep me awake all on its own. But! Not to be outdone by the squeaky mechanism, the glowing leaves reflect off of the mirror and the walls in such a way that there is a constant flickering to the green light. Also incredibly annoying as an adult trying to sleep. Finally, 20 minutes is not long enough for the songs and lights. 30 minutes would be much better. My baby has woken up because all the sounds stopped. Not quite what we were hoping for...

So, we're going to return it and go for a way less beautiful but hopefully more usable Tiny Love mobile.
Playkidz Super Durable Pound A Ball Great Fun for Toddlers - STEM Developmental Educational Toys - Great Birthday Gift
Playkidz Super Durable Pound A Ball Great Fun for Toddlers - STEM Developmental Educational Toys - Great Birthday Gift
First off, this has been one of our little one's favorite toys since it arrived.

The little "air holes" in the tubes are great, because they facilitate the removal of all sorts of various objects that "somehow" get violently jammed inside of the toy.

This thing has been used as a toy, a ladder, a shot-put, and as a mallet (not just the mallet, but the entire toy) to beat other toys, and shows no signs of wear so far (and it's been the better part of a year now). The top still securely holds all of the balls and still functions as new.

My only ideas to improve this would be to make the base tilted just a little, so that gravity pulls the balls all of the way out. Our play room is carpeted, and the uneven-ness of the floor means that the balls don't usually end up in the removable tray without adult intervention. It's a really small complaint, though.

Power Rangers Mighty Morphin Black Ranger 12-Inch Action Figure Toy Inspired by Classic TV Show, with Power Axe Accessory
These figures are great for my 2 year old! They are 11.5 inches tall (same height as Avengers Titan Hero series) and each one comes with a weapon accessory. The hands are a flexible plastic so it's easier to put their weapons in their hands. If you have the pink ranger, you can take her power bow and click the other 3 figures' weapons to the bow to make the power blaster - minus the yellow ranger's power daggers. That's really my only complaint; I want them to make a yellow, green, and white ranger version of these figures!

Power Rangers Mighty Morphin Legacy Edition Morpher
So the entire thing is die cast metal and excellent quality, it looks exactly like the plastic toy they sold when the show was still hot in the US, I remember pretty distinctly as I owned that back in the day.

So, it's not perfect for a few reasons though, so complaints:

- FOR THE COLLECTORS OUT THERE: THIS CAME WITH BATTERIES INSTALLED. I don't mind this at all, I planned on opening it. But if you intend to keep this NIB, you run a serious risk of having leaking batteries destroy the electronics inside it over time. Something to consider if you plan on collecting.

- It's identical to the plastic toy, which means the plastic version's bad placement of a screw, visible in the red part with the toy open. They could have re-engineered this one part to use glue or something not so visible.

- The sound is low. It works, but I wish I could crank it up a little.

The plastic belt attachment piece is kinda useless to me, but I still appreciate that they included it anyway, and it might be how I put it on display anyway, rather than build a base for it. It feels very sturdy with all the metal in it, although the stickers might be easy to chip or scratch.

I'm probably going to modify mine since I don't care about resale value in the future, and I'll probably cover the stickers in a clear protect layer and find a way to remove the one screw on the face. But I can't really complain about that, as they were trying to recreate the toy perfectly, and that it does.

Still highly recommend this for nostalgia and if you have a nerd collection like mine and don't mind admitting you loved this show.

First off, the laptop screen is a vertical, portrait mode screen, which by default makes it look like it's turned 90 degrees. Second, instead of entering a Windows setup on first boot like you are supposed to when booting a new device for the first time, it simply just said for the Administrator to login, meaning someone already setup Windows before shipping it to me!! I have no idea what that person may have put onto this Windows installation before shipping it to me, very creepy.....
I ended up just deleting that Windows installation entirely and installed a Linux OS on the laptop, and aside from the Portrait mode screen, which I was able to rotate back normally quite easily, the laptop has been working just fine so far. Still though, that Windows installation was very, very sketchy...

I was extremely frustrated to receive the wrong size, but after talking with Amazon they quickly resolved the issue, and resent the correct size at no charge. The craftsmanship of the tank is impeccable. The fabric is incredibly soft, and not one loose thread! In fact, there is actually extra fabric sent with the shirt in case of a snag. I absolutely love this brand.
Hanes EcoSmart Pantalón de forro polar abierto con bolsillos para hombre
Hanes EcoSmart Pantalón de forro polar abierto con bolsillos para hombre
Por años he buscado pantaloneras con bolsillos para reemplazar mis viejas pantaloneras que he tenido por muchos años, pero la mayoría de las tiendas sólo vende pantaloneras completamente lisas, sin bolsillos. Esta pantalonera es ligera, cómoda, tiene elástico y cordón en la cintura, y tiene bolsillos, por lo que cumple mis expectativas.

Mido 1.65 m y peso 70 kg. De pantalón uso talla 31 a 33, y la pantalonera la pedí en talla chica, que se supone que es para tallas 28 a 30. Me queda ligeramente apretada, pero como tiene elástico en la cintura, se extiende y no es problema. Con las pantaloneras me parece que es ideal que estén un poco holgadas alrededor de la cintura para que no sobresalga la entrepierna. En mi caso la pantalonera queda justa sin necesidad de apretar el cordón. Siento que ahorita está bien pero no debo subir de peso, porque entonces sí me va a quedar muy justa.

La pedí en talla chica porque este tipo de ropa tiende a hacerse holgada con el uso. Tengo otras pantaloneras viejas en talla chica cuyo elástico está muy distendido y ahora parecen talla mediana y se me caen. Sin embargo, la pantalonera de esta reseña tiene un alto contenido (50%) de poliéster por lo que probablemente mantendrá la forma por más tiempo, ya que esta fibra es sintética y no se deforma. Mis pantaloneras antiguas eran 100% de algodón y creo que por eso se hicieron holgadas. Si esta pantalonera no se deforma después de un año, creo que debería ordenar la talla mediana, y ajustar la cintura con el cordón.

En cuanto a la textura, las pantaloneras 100% de algodón son bastante gruesas, por lo que se siente que aguantan el uso rudo o cuando hay necesidad de cargar algo en los bolsillos. En la pantalonera de esta reseña, por el contenido 50% de poliéster, la tela es más delgada y ligera. Esto no es malo en sí mismo, pero me preocupa un poco que los bolsillos se rompan al cargar llaves o algo pesado.
Botas altas a la pantorrilla, de moda para mujer de Koolaburra by UGG
Botas altas a la pantorrilla, de moda para mujer de Koolaburra by UGG
If you don’t want to read my long review: I contacted Ugg and Koolaburra and these are REAL. They are extremely cute, comfy and comparable to original Uggs. I own both. The shaft is slightly tighter on these than Uggs.

First off I own several pairs of Ugg’s purchased from Nordstrom. I saw these and thought they were adorable so I decided to go with a size 8. All my other uggs are in size 7. These are a little big but the shaft is smaller in these Koolaburra at the top than normal uggs so I needed the size 8. I called Ugg and they confirmed these are genuine Koolaburra Uggs! I wish people would stop scaring others and saying they are fake when no research has been done! They changed the boot slightly and some people may have the older model. This is ridiculous that someone would claim they are fake without even contacting the company and asking! The ones I purchased were through the seller Zappos and they do NOT sell fake shoes! Come on y’all! Don’t say they are fake if they look slightly different or you just THINK they are. Contact the company and ask questions before you write a review scaring people and confusing people! Anyways like I said I have other Uggs (this is my first Koolaburra) and the quality on these Koolaburra is wonderful! The only difference to me is there is faux fur on the inside and uggs have the genuine shearling. The little bit of fur that sticks out on the outside of the Koolaburra is apparently genuine sheep. The suede on both Ugg’s and Koolaburra feels the same to me. The comfort is the same to me. As mentioned unfortunately the shaft is a little tighter on the top of the Koolaburra than normal Uggs so I went a size up. I have a slightly larger calf. The foot and ankle area is a tad big but it’s fine. If you have skinny/normal legs you should probably stick with your normal Ugg size. If you have bigger calves like me you may want to go up one from your normal Ugg size. For reference I can wear anywhere between a size 7-8 and I got these in an 8. Normal uggs in a 7. Bottom line they are absolutely precious and just as comfy as regular Uggs in my opinion! I sprayed them with water proofing spray. If you are looking to buy these because the normal Uggs are too expensive, yes BUY THEM! As someone who has both I will be sticking with Koolaburra from now on!

I like films that expand my perspective and move me in some way. Netflix kind of feels a little too basic for my taste, but OVID has classics like "Dark Days" about people living in NYC's underground tunnels.. independent films from China... and works by Chantal Akerman. I think Ovid is also more approachable and less pretentious than the Criterion Collection.

GIO-FLEX PU Heat Transfer Vinyl 10" x 12" - 33 Sheets HTV Assorted Colors Bundle/Variety Pack, Adhesive Vinyl, Iron-On Transfer, Heat Press, DIY Design for T-Shirts, Easy to Weed
I read a bunch of reviews and there is kind of a split and I think I found some common threads with the low star reviews. First off this is NOT vinyl it's PolyUrethane. So it's closer to easyweed super stretch (or whatever they are calling it). It needs more heat to set and has to be cold peeled. A bunch of the folks who have peeling problems are using irons and that may have a hard time getting everything hot enough. Others don't seem to have read the heat settings (printed on the envelope) and are using their "tried and true" HTV settings. That won't work. PU wants 320F, it's not going to bond at 305 or 310.
The second big "complaint" is by folks cutting on the backing and not the film. This is semi understandable since HTV generally is full color film on a clear backing and this stuff is a sandwich of color and a white adhesive layer on a clear backing. You have to put the color side down. I screwed that up my self and was frustrated till I did a knife test and realized I had it backward.
The PU film is thinner than normal HTV so if anything a lighter touch is needed. If you can't seem to cut through ... you are cutting on the wrong side.

I haven't used this long enough to have long term wear results but some reviews have and seem to be holding up.

I suspect that most of the experienced users who posted negative reviews were using HTV heat settings and hadn't noticed that this was PU. I know a lot of the newbee negative reviews were cutting on the wrong side.
And if you are using a home iron this product may not be for you. Folks who are using heat presses seem to be having better results than folks with home irons. I suspect it's because home irons are not putting out enough even heat and they are only getting partial bonding.

Providing this hold up to a bunch of washings I think it's a winner. It cuts like a dream (when I got the film side up!) and weeds very easily. With my hand heat press I did a second press because I though some of it was lifting, but that was probably over cautious. The backing clings more than other HTV and I think it was just stretching the t shirt a bit while I was peeling.
As a side plus PU is a lot less toxic than vinyl, it's baby safe (vinyl isn't) and extremely inert. So as long as it's bonder it should last a long time.

Amazing gluten free red liquorice. Pre-coeliac diagnosis I loved the occasional red liquorice stick so I missed having it. I get the original flavour gluten free liquorice for my Dad in Australia but I kept this one for myself. A must for any coeliac missing liquorice.

I have liked these for over 40 yrs!. They are mild & I find them soothing. They don't numb your throat. There are sprays & prescriptions that will do that. These coat your throat and makes my throat feel better. They are also great for dry mouth. When I was going through cancer treatment they really helped. So glad about the new flavors. I've tried the green apple. They work & taste just as good as the cherry. I just placed an order for all the new flavors to check out which ones I like the best. Just in case I get sick this year. I've tried other brands, some are just to strong & others i don't care for the flavors. These work for me, I highly recommend!
