Download and read online First Life in PDF and EPUB This pathbreaking book explores how life can begin, taking us from cosmic clouds of stardust, to volcanoes on Earth, to the modern chemistry laboratory. Seeking to understand life’s connection to the stars, David Deamer introduces astrobiology, a new scientific discipline that studies the origin and evolution of life on Earth and relates it to the birth and death of stars, planet formation, interfaces between minerals, water, and atmosphere, and the physics and chemistry of carbon compounds. Deamer argues that life began as systems of molecules that assembled into membrane-bound packages. These in turn provided an essential compartment in which more complex molecules assumed new functions required for the origin of life and the beginning of evolution. Deamer takes us from the vivid and unpromising chaos of the Earth four billion years ago up to the present and his own laboratory, where he contemplates the prospects for generating synthetic life. Engaging and accessible, First Life describes the scientific story of astrobiology while presenting a fascinating hypothesis to explain the origin of life.

Download and read online The First Life of Adamastor in PDF and EPUB The First Life of Adamastor has it origins in an act of rescue: what, wondered André Brink, lay behind fragments of myth that have been handed down about the mountains of the Cape? Adamastor, the Titan whose body, legend has it, formed the rocks of the Peninsula, first appears in European literature in the sixteenth century - much about the time of the first known contact between seagoing European explorers and the natives of Southern Africa. How, Brink asks, would that meeting have looked from the landward side? What role would the visitors take in the mythology of an utterly different culture, with its own deities, its own accumulated story? Brink, in this extraordinary, moving and potentially explosive creation has unearthed from the sun-carved land itself the missing meanings of a myth that has waited five centuries to be invented.

Download and read online My First Life in PDF and EPUB Hugo Chávez’s extraordinary story—in his own words Hugo Chávez, military officer turned left-wing revolutionary, was one of the most important Latin American leaders of the twenty-first century. This book tells the story of his life up to his election as president in 1998. Throughout this riveting and historically important account of his early years, Chávez’s energy and charisma shine through. As a young man, he awakens gradually to the reality of his country—where huge inequalities persist and the majority of citizens live in indescribable poverty—and decides to act. He gives a fascinating description of growing up in Barinas, his years in the Military Academy, his long-planned military conspiracy—the most significant in the history of Venezuela and perhaps of Latin America—which led to his unsuccessful coup attempt of 1992, and eventually to his popular electoral victory in 1998. His collaborator on this book is Ignacio Ramonet, the famous French journalist (and editor for many years of Le Monde diplomatique), who undertook a similar task with Fidel Castro (Fidel Castro: My Life). From the Hardcover edition.

Download and read online My First Life in PDF and EPUB The incredible story of a boy who believed in the Church and wholeheartedly embraced its rigorous discipline in order to become a priest. After reaching his dream, during the stormy years of the post-Vatican II, he was crushed by the system, which did not allow any original thinking outside of the official parameters. Reader's comment "Wow! I must say that I truly enjoyed the read. You should be proud of what you have achieved here; it is a masterpiece The story is fascinating and your writing style is impeccable. I found myself sympathizing completely with Benedict. I could feel his innate sadness at not having a companion, joy when he found Hercules again, and sadness when he heard of his tragic death. Elation when he met Little Grace, as she was a true confidante to him. Then again his sadness when he lost her too. It seemed there was an undercurrent of sadness throughout the book, almost a dark cloud hanging over him his whole life. He was never close to his parents or brother, and didn't seem to have anyone to share things or be himself with, apart from brief respites when he had Hercules and Little Grace in his life. His life was such a roller coaster of ups and downs! What shocked me most was the utter beaurocracy within the walls of the Catholic Church; how they maneuvered him out against his will! It is incredible the egos that existed among some of those Provincials and Directors, who would stop at nothing to get what they wanted (as you say in the book no matter how much blood had to be spilt). I have read over 60 books in my capacity as editor/proofreader, and your definitely ranks in the top 3!" Jessica Keet
