Karen Kalliopi Papagapitos was just four years old in 1951 when she was visited by otherworldly beings who told her, "We are family; we are related." In her astonishing true story, Karen finally breaks her silence and details the first twenty-five years of visitations by those she calls her Bright Friends. Karen reveals the many lessons her Bright Friends taught her without ever exchanging a spoken word. As Karen details sporadic visits by two types of beings who lived in a world without war, hunger, or poverty, she discloses how her Bright Friends took samples of her DNA, ova, and breast tissue, all while leading her down a path where she eventually learned who they were, where they came from, why they needed humans, and how they were able to share unconditional, perfect love and trust in each other. Through a lifetime of open exchanges, Karen reveals how the otherworldly beings conveyed beneficial wisdom that inspired her to believe in and ultimately share with the world the power of their goodness as well as their mission to care for and preserve our planet. Bright Friends provides a glimpse into twenty-five years of visitations by beings who influenced one woman's life journey with their valuable lessons.

We often think of celebrations as centering around special occasions, like Birthdays, Christmas, or other holidays. But there is no need to wait for those times. Everyday is a cause for celebration. The very fact that you are alive, the wondrous world around you, and the special people in your life are all reasons to rejoice. That's what this book is all about. Over 500 suggestions for living life to the fullest. A compendium of "glass half full" common sense, these witty and wise words from both the rich and famous, as well as the not-so-rich and the not-so-famous, will, I hope, inspire you to make every day a special day. Pianist Artur Rubinstein once said, "To be alive, it's all a miracle." Yes indeed, it is all a miracle, and all a cause for celebration.

It was a year packed with unsettling events. The Panic of 1857 closed every bank in New York City, ruined thousands of businesses, and caused widespread unemployment among industrial workers. The Mormons in Utah Territory threatened rebellion when federal troops approached with a non-Mormon governor to replace Brigham Young. The Supreme Court outraged northern Republicans and abolitionists with the Dred Scott decision ("a breathtaking example of judicial activism"). And when a proslavery minority in Kansas Territory tried to foist a proslavery constitution on a large antislavery majority, President Buchanan reneged on a crucial commitment and supported the minority, a disastrous miscalculation which ultimately split the Democratic party in two. In America in 1857, eminent American historian Kenneth Stampp offers a sweeping narrative of this eventful year, covering all the major crises while providing readers with a vivid portrait of America at mid-century. Stampp gives us a fascinating account of the attempt by William Walker and his band of filibusters to conquer Nicaragua and make it a slave state, of crime and corruption, and of street riots by urban gangs such as New York's Dead Rabbits and Bowery Boys and Baltimore's Plug Uglies and Blood Tubs. But the focus continually returns to Kansas. He examines the outrageous political frauds perpetrated by proslavery Kansans, Buchanan's calamitous response and Stephen Douglas's break with the President (a rare event in American politics, a major party leader repudiating the president he helped elect), and the whirl of congressional votes and dramatic debates that led to a settlement humiliating to Buchanan--and devastating to the Democrats. 1857 marked a turning point, at which sectional conflict spun out of control and the country moved rapidly toward the final violent resolution in the Civil War. Stampp's intensely focused look at this pivotal year illuminates the forces at work and the mood of the nation as it plummeted toward disaster.

The aspirations of democracy and the requirements of diplomacy have always coexisted uneasily. The politicians discussed in this book, in particular the appreciation of the careers of John Bright and James Bryce, reflect obliquely or directly on the problems of politicians who seek the 'high moral ground' either in domestic or international politics. There is also a discussion of the relationship between politicians and the press, as well as of the difficult link between cultural and political assumptions on the one hand and the facts of economic performance on the other.

In the mid-1800s, a quaint fishing village, called Nauvoo at the time, was the largest fishery on the New Jersey seacoast. By the end of the 19th century, this fishing village had grown into the flourishing seaside resort of Sea Bright. Luxurious hotels like the Normandie-by-the-Sea, Sea Bright Inn, and the Octagon House were built, transforming the town into a haven for the wealthy, who built elegant cottages along its coast. The famous Pannaci Hotel and Restaurant became known as the “Delmonico of Sea Bright.” Today Sea Bright continues to draw vacationers and residents alike with its glistening water and beautiful sandy beaches.
