evocative and wholly magnificent'- Roger Hutchison, The Scotsman On 31 December 1918, hours from the first New Year of peace, hundreds of Royal Naval Reservists from the Isle of Lewis poured off successive trains onto the quayside at Kyle of Lochalsh. A chaotic Admiralty had made no adequate arrangements for their safe journey home. Corners were cut, an elderly and recently requisitioned steam-yacht was sent from Stornoway, and that evening HMY Iolaire sailed from Kyle of Lochalsh, grossly overloaded and with life-belts for less than a third of all on board. The Iolaire never made it. At two in the morning, in pitch-black and stormy conditions, she piled onto rocks only yards from the harbour entrance and just half a mile from Stornoway pier, where thronged friends and relatives eagerly awaited the return of their heroes. 205 men drowned, 188 of them natives of Lewis and Harris - men who had come through all the alarms and dangers of the First World War only to die on their own doorstep, at the mouth of a harbour many could themselves have navigated with ease, on a day precious to Highlanders for family, celebration and togetherness. The loss of the Iolaire remains the worst peacetime British disaster at sea since the sinking of the Titanic. Yet, beyond the Western Isles, few have ever heard of what is not only one of the cruellest events in our history but an extraordinary maritime mystery - a tale not only of bureaucrats in a hurry, unfathomable Naval incompetence and abiding, official contempt for the lives of Highlanders, but of individual heroism, astonishing escapes, heart-rending anecdote and the resilience and faith of a remarkable people. In the first English account and on the ninetieth anniversary of the 'dark ship', John MacLeod tells the story of the Iolaire, the astonishing commitment of the people of Lewis to the war against the Kaiser, its sickening end, and the way of life the disaster effectively destroyed - a tipping-point, he argues, in the overthrow of an old human economy and which deprived the Isle of Lewis of an entire generation.

Thich Nhat Hanh's central teaching is that, through mindfulness, we can learn to live in the present moment instead of in the past and in the future. It’s only way to truly develop peace, both in one's self and in the world. Now, for the first time, all of Thich Nhat Hanh’s key practices are collected in one accessible and easy-to-use volume. Happiness is structured to introduce those new to Buddhist teachings as well as for more experienced practitioners, Happiness is the quintessential resource of mindfulness practices. Integrating these practices into daily life allows the reader to begin to cultivate peace and joy within him/herself, leading to solidity and freedom from fear, misunderstanding, and suffering. With the practices offered in Happiness Thich Nhat Hanh encourages the reader to learn to do all the things they do in daily life with mindfulness; to walk, sit, work, eat, and drive, with full awareness of what they are doing. It can bring about a shift towards one of the principles of engaged Buddhism, a shift towards practicing mindfulness in every moment of the day and not just while ‘formally’ meditating. Thich Nhat Hanh encourages his readers to "try to be intelligent and skillful in their practice, approaching every aspect of the practice with curiosity and a sense of search. It’s important to practice with understanding and not just for the form and appearance. Enjoy your practice with a relaxed and gentle attitude, with an open mind and receptive heart."

This the first book on the physics of sound for the nonspecialist to empower readers with a hands-on, ears-open approach that includes production, analysis, and perception of sound. The book makes possible a deep intuitive understanding of many aspects of sound, as opposed to the usual approach of mere description. This goal is aided by hundreds of original illustrations and examples, many of which the reader can reproduce and adjust using the same tools used by the author. Readers are positioned to build intuition by participating in discovery. This introduction to sound engages and informs amateur and professional musicians, performers, teachers, sound engineers, students of many stripes, and indeed anyone interested in the auditory world. The book does not hesitate to follow entertaining and sometimes controversial side trips into the history and world of acoustics, reinforcing key concepts. You will discover how musical instruments really work, how pitch is perceived, and how sound can be amplified with no external power source.

In, Every Woman's Fear, a real life fiction/non-fiction drama set in California and the icy shores of Maine. This story forces you to think and feel about what rape really means. What rape can do to you inside and out? It makes you think about fear; makes you smell fear, and makes you hate fear. My character is violently raped, and tortured in the mind as well as body. This story will take you as the reader into her pain and suffering and indecision. Alessa is raped while on vacation in Palm Springs, the crime is eventually reported but the investigation is dropped. She goes through a recovery period with no therapy. The rape destroys her marriage and leaves her single with two children. She meets a British man and he awakens feelings inside of her that she thought were long gone. She explores this in her mind and is afraid of what she is feeling and therefore chooses not to deal with it. She leans on a small support group of best friends for advice and communication. It is a very cohesive group. She appears to be very strong, and confident, successful, but it is only a façade. She is terrified and thinks about Bill and is ashamed. Why? She wants to know why? Bill is rich and obsessed, and a borderline racist. He tolerates people of other races; he is torn with having these unexplained, uncontrollable feelings for a woman of another race and hates himself for it. He doesn't know what he is feeling and is very angry inside about it. He hasn't felt this way before and wants to punish her for it. He rapes her because he can. He finds her again because like the light at the end of the tunnel he is drawn to what he cannot ignore. He punishes her because she denies him, and because he is better than she is. He takes what he wants in life and does whatever he feels because he can. He is controlling and a little bit on the psychotic side. He tracks her down through police records. Blackmails her, threatens her children and family members. She makes a decision to go back with him to Newport Beach, CA. She is kept as his maid, his housekeeper, his slave, is mistress. She suffers, she is terrified at all times and not thinking clearly. The police show up, and she protects him, her children and herself. She stays and says nothing. She stays and he forces her to get married. She stays and may very well end up being pregnant. She stays knowing that there is nothing more worse then Bill hating black people, but to actually produce a black offspring, he will probably try and kill her. Then to let her reproduce.
