I was guided to write this book to let the world know about the incredible messages, protection, and guidance that the Archangel Michael provides to each and every one of us through the help of God and the many other archangels. Call upon him when you need protection for you or your family, help removing the fear that you have and removing the ego from your decisions, and to feel free of spirit and have total love for yourself, the world, and everyone around you. I hope that you will call upon him in your everyday life and you will truly feel loved and at peace. He will be your protector. The next time you hear the name Michael or Michelle or encounter someone with that name, try to remember what happened that day, and for one reason or another there is a message there for you to hear. And remember to always thank your angels for their help and know that you are truly loved and protected.

'The Firmament of the Sky Dome' explores how a supernova explosion of a large star eventually resulted in the formation of planet Earth and the rest of the Solar System as we know it today. Knowing how the Earth was created is the key that unlocks the mysteries of many global events that have occurred on our planet in the past and will take place in the near future. These include the dramatic events of the first three 'days' of the Genesis 1 account of creation: the floodlighting of the entire planet, the formation of the solid dome in the sky called 'the firmament' and the emergence of a supercontinent of dry land. Other events include Noah's flood which wiped out nearly all land-living life; the dramatic parting of the Red Sea; the breakup of the supercontinent into the present say continents; Joshua's long day when the Earth appeared to stop rotating; Ahab's sundial which indicated that the Sun had moved backwards in its normal path across the sky; the destruction of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah; the extraterrestrial events that are predicted during the Great Tribulation to come; the devastation of the Earth by a Great Fire and its subsequent transformation into a paradise with the city of New Jerusalem. The book intertwines the verses from the Bible with scientific truths, and gives an entirely new insight for the interpretation of the geology of the Earth. The future of the Earth is also predicted: the Earth will be devastated by a global 'natural' nuclear explosion that will set it on fire; but this will not be the end because it will be subsequently transformed into a wonderful paradise for a new phase of existence for mankind.

What would biology look like if it took the problem of natural evil seriously? This book argues that biological descriptions of evolution are inherently moral, just as the biblical story of creation has biological implications. A complete account of evolution will therefore require theological input. The Dome of Eden does not try to harmonize evolution and creation. Harmonizers typically begin with Darwinism and then try to add just enough religion to make evolution more palatable, or they begin with Genesis and pry open the creation account just wide enough to let in a little bit of evolution. By contrast, Stephen Webb provides a theory of how evolution and theology fit together, and he argues that this kind of theory is required by the internal demands of both theology and biology. The Dome of Eden also develops a theological account of evolution that is distinct from the intelligent design movement. Webb shows how intelligent design properly discerns the inescapable dimension of purpose in nature but, like Darwinism itself, fails to make sense of the problem of natural evil. Finally, this book draws on the work of Karl Barth to advance a new reading of the Genesis narrative and the theology of Duns Scotus to provide the necessary metaphysical foundation for evolutionary thought.

The first competition (1999-2001) to find a future use for the Millennium Dome, failed to find a buyer able to complete the deal on acceptable terms. (This initial competition was for the Dome itself, without additional land.) The second sale process (2001-2004) led to a deal with Meridian Delta Ltd and the Anschutz Entertainment Group for the development over 20 years of the whole northern Greenwich Peninsula (over 100 acres), including reuse of the Dome. It preserves the Dome in place until 2018, housing a large indoor arena and leisure complex, and provides for a major office development and some 10,000 new homes on the adjacent land. The Committee criticizes English Partnerships for not making a clear, open offer of all the land that was available at the outset of the second competition. It is suggested that the value for money aspects of the deal have not been fully analysed, and that the public sector should consider taking a royalty, or a percentage of gross takings, instead of profit sharing. English Partnerships should ensure it takes a proactive part in this joint venture.

Discover the wonderful secret the Earth holds for us-that the stars of the galaxy live on our planet. Holograms of high-magnitude stars over holy mountains. Physical travel to other planets through stargates on the Earth's surface. Near instantaneous transportation across the planet through quick-way portals. Outrageous science fiction or sober geomantic fact? Earth Mysteries researcher Richard Leviton takes you on a wild tour of three geomantic features of our planet and reveals that what science fiction has dreamed the Earth in fact offers us. Stars on the Earth combines scholarship, clairvoyance, and field experience with the latest discoveries of geology and astrophysics and the timeless insights of the world's myths to open the planetary door to the stars. It's all part of the Earth's unsuspected but staggeringly rich endowment as a designer planet. Our planet was precisely designed and implemented for us, and it's equipped with a visionary geography that mirrors features of the galaxy and Heavens. Why are so many of the Earth's mountains said to be holy, producing visions and encounters with the "gods?" They all have canopies of light called domes, each transmitting the presence of a galactic star. What is the geomantic origin of the Bermuda Triangle? Two dysfunctional stargates. If working properly, they and the Earth's other two million stargates could transport us rapidly to other planets. Is there a way to travel quickly across the planet without using cars, airplanes, boats, or trains? Yes, and it's called a traversable wormhole, and the Earth has thousands of them awaiting our discovery and use. Come join the tour of a planet you've never seen before: our own star-infused Earth.

By the last decades of the nineteenth century, more people were making more speeches to greater numbers in a wider variety of venues than at any previous time. This book argues that a recognizably modern public life was created in Victorian Britain largely through the instrumentality of public speech. Shedding new light on the careers of many of the most important figures of the Victorian era and beyond, including Gladstone, Disraeli, Sir Robert Peel, John Bright, Joseph Chamberlain, Winston Churchill, Lloyd George, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, and Canon Liddon, the book traces the ways in which oratory came to occupy a central position in the conception and practice of Victorian public life. Not a study of rhetoric or a celebration of great oratory, the book stresses the social developments that led to the production and consumption of these speeches.

Union Pacific is America's most popular railroad. The first to create a transcontinental railroad link in 1869 in conjunction with the Central Pacific, UP was also the first U.S. railroad to create a modern streamlined passenger train. Sleek, quiet, powerful, and fast, the lightweight streamliner set a new standard for luxury on the rails. This authoritative, illustrated history follows up streamliners from 1934 with the launch of the City of Salina right up to Union Pacific's ceding of passenger service to Amtrak in 1971. Award-winning rail author Joe Welsh examines the fleet of “City” trains that followed the Salina, all connecting Chicago to their namesakes with revolutionary equipment and diesel motive power on breakneck schedules. In addition to detailed looks at the trains, readers are treated to their various forms of motive power and rolling stock, and their unparalleled services. Dozens of black-and-white images and period color photos depict the City of Portland, City of Denver, City of Los Angeles, City of San Francisco, and City of St. Louis along, with period ads and route maps to complete the picture. Images also detail the opulent furnishings and impeccable service that distinguished America's premier passenger line--from uniforms and dinnerware to the most exotic lounge cars ever built.

Pity represents a combination of fear, helplessness and overwhelming agitation. It is a term which suffuses our everyday lives; it is also a dangerous term hovering between approval of sympathy and disapproval of emotional wallowing (as in 'self-pity'). This book traces an entire history of pity, as an emotion and as an element in the arts, engaging as it does so with a wealth of theoretical ideas including Freud, Derrida, Levinas and others. It begins with an 'Introduction: Distinguishing Pity', followed by chapters on the Aristotelian framework; Buddhism and pity; the pieta in the Middle Ages and Renaissance; Shakespeare on pity; Milton's pitiless Christianity; pity and charity in the early novel; Blake's views on pity; the Victorian debate, from Austen to Dickens and George Eliot; Brecht and Chekhov on pity and self-pity; 'war, and the pity of war'; Jean Rhys and Stevie Smith; pity, immigration and the colony; and finally three contemporary texts by Michel Faber, Kazuo Ishiguro and Cormac McCarthy.Features* Original treatment of the concept of pity providing detailed textual criticism and speculative argument* Wide-ranging: running from ancient Greek theory to the present day* Covers a wide variety of texts, including fiction, poetry and drama* Engages with the most recent theoretical debates about literature and the emotions

“Karen Armstrong is a genius.”—A. N. Wilson As the foundation stone of the Jewish and Christian scriptures, The Book of Genesis unfolds some of the most arresting stories of world literature—the Creation; Adam and Eve; Cain and Abel; the sacrifice of Isaac. Yet the meaning of Genesis remains enigmatic. In this fascinating volume, Karen Armstrong, author of the highly acclaimed bestseller A History of God, brilliantly illuminates the mysteries and profundities of this mystifying work. BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Karen Armstrong's Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life. “A lyrical chronicle of one woman's wrestling with Genesis that can serve as a guide to others . . . As notable for its scholarship as it is for its honesty and vulnerability.”—Publishers Weekly “Armstrong can simplify complex ideas, but she is never simplistic.”—The New York Times Book Review
