The Atomic Chef: And Other True Tales of Design, Technology, and Human Error
Steven Casey - 2006
The 20 stand-alone chapters of this new work describe how technological failures result from the incompatibilities between the way things are designed and the way people actually perceive, think, and act. New technologies will succeed or fail based on our ability to minimize these incompatibilities between the characteristics of people and the characteristics of the things we create and use.This book is the quintessential 'must read' for all those who deal with technology in any fashion. From the frustration of an awkward ATM machine to the threat of accidental, nuclear Armageddon, Casey shows how the same crucial factors come into play told through the very eyes of those people who saw and experienced these things. No student of design, psychology, behavioral science, or technology should be without this book, and neither should any intelligent member of society who wants to know what goes on with the successes and failures of modern technology.Sit ringside to the action where compelling events unfold. The stories in this book will take you to airports and airline cabins, an amusement park, a fertility clinic, a pharmaceutical plant, an emergency dispatch center, the Olympic games, and a bank; to hospitals, spacecraft, ships, and cars. From the coasts of Peru and Monterey, in orbit aboard the International Space Station, the freeways of Southern California and the back roads of France, the battlefields of Afghanistan, and a nuclear fuel plant in Japan this is The Atomic Chef.

Champion of Aphrodite (Demigods and Monsters, #1)
D.R. Rosier - 2021
His night would start out much like any other, as he stops off for a beer or two after work, and to meet up with friends if they’re there that night.But his life is turned upside down, as the most beautiful woman he’d ever laid eyes on walks into the bar scantily clad and right up to him, and he learns he isn’t quite as human as he’d always thought. In fact, he was a demigod, and the woman that’s doing his father a favor… well, she’s a goddess. The goddess of love, pleasure, beauty, and fertility in fact, and she needs a champion. It all seems pretty insane to him even as he accepts, especially the part about his godly stepmother wanting him dead. It only gets crazier from there and the insane ride never stops. He hopes it’ll slow down soon, even though a lot of it is insanely enjoyable and beyond surreal, if not his mind can always catch up when he’s dead…Author Warning: This is an Urban Fantasy adventure featuring a mixed monster girl and demigoddess harem and polyamory theme, with some MF to MFF scenes of an explicit nature. If that’s not your cup of tea, don’t read this book. You have been warned. This is also loosely based on Greek mythology. I’m sure I got some things wrong, and I know I made some changes to the myths fit my story.
Nephilim; The Truth About Genesis 6 Giants,Fallen Angels, Ancient Evil And The Days Of Noah (The Watchers,Mystery Babylon, Trans Humanism, The Illuminati And The Occult Agenda)
Alan Fawcett - 2015
The Nephilim. Does the bible really talk about Giants? Did they really exist?The Truth and The Lie series. There are so many interesting things in the Bible that much of our modern world doesn’t even realize are there. We are going to explore many of these areas in this series. We will search for the truth and the reality of what the word of God really says, as well as addressing the misconceptions that are held about it in our modern days. The word of God contains the reality of the scientific creation that is extravagantly miraculous and still completely understandable. We will be Exploring The truth about biblical giants. The reality of fallen angels. Who is Lucifer really? Is there really good and evil? What did Jesus (Yeshua) tell us to be watching for? Can we actually know what is “truth?” If The Word Of God Is True… That Changes Everything!What if the Bible isn’t just a seemingly quaint collection of myths and self-righteous moral codes? What if it isn’t an antiquated tribal religious document like any other primitive myth? And what if it isn’t a simplistic story of primitive people trying to understand their world, a people who we judgingly suppose were without the benefit of our modern science and unable to have our modern insight? And what if this modern insight is not what it is supposed to be? We Need To Know! Where did everything come from? Who is really in charge? How old is the earth? Is there more in the bible than I’ve been told? What about the other ancient cultures?” Modern atheistic science freely admits that there is so much about the universe we don’t know, and yet can’t even conceive that there is something beyond us that is responsible for all this. Our modern science is beginning to take a peek into the unseen like never before. Quantum and dimensional physics shows us that there is indeed a supernatural realm - other dimensions of existence! The further science explores, the more it becomes apparent that the universe is more like a grand thought than a grand thing. All we see is made from what we cannot see - exactly as the Bible has maintained from the beginning. The reality of every new discovery points more and more towards a highly complex interwoven dimensional reality that is closer to a digital hologram than is comfortable to admit. We know that time is part of the space time matter realm we occupy and that it has a beginning and an end, that there is more beyond time. YHVH, Elohim God, exists outside of time. Yet science isn’t likely to offer any forthcoming admission to this possibility anytime soon.Yes, if it is true, if there is one creator God, the God of the Bible, then that changes everything! We will explore the fascinating reality that the word of God is true. It explains everything and brings our world - back - into a perspective that makes sense. It is scientifically accurate, it is realistically possible, and it is an amazing reality! You Will Learn The Truth. The truth about world history! What we have been taught isn’t all there is. The truth about ancient culture, Their legends and myths. The truth about how everything really got here The reality about the players behind world events The true existence of a supernatural world, proven by science.

But set against the savagery of the Atlantic even that might not be enough... BOOK 2: KING'S SHILLING As a powerful insurgent army closes on Liberia’s capital, London is forced to act, and HMS Beaufort is despatched to West Africa to pull British nationals from the teeth of encroaching danger.

And with time running out Beaufort’s Captain makes the decision to take his ship up river... BOOK 3: LONG REACH When Belize is invaded by a powerful neighbour it’s Britain that must spring to the defence of this old outpost of empire. But intervening in distant Central America will test the limits of the former colonial power. And in the end the outcome will turn on the skill, boldness and heart-bursting bravery of handful of British forces already in country... BOOK 4: CONGO BLUE When a group of missionaries get caught up in bloody African civil war London is forced to act. For the men of 40 Commando, Royal Marines, it should be a quick in and out.

Thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing.’ ‘I have just finished reading Congo Blue after reading Let Not The Deep, King's Shilling and Long Reach all in sequence and almost without a break. I just could not stop. I see completely why Rowland White praised these books. I recommend anyone to read them all.’ ‘These four books are probably the best series I've read.’ ‘The quality of his writing and the depth of his characters are brilliant.’ ‘I was lost from the world while reading this and books like that don't come along too often.’ Mike Lunnon-Wood’s books are perfect for fans of Red Storm Rising, Sniper One or Bravo Two Zero or movies like Red Dawn, Dunkirk or The Siege of Jadotville.
