COVID-19 AFRICA, HAITI, AND THE U. S. VIRGIN ISLANDS

The Covid-19 pandemic took the world by surprise. Nations were caught unaware and people scrambled to find ways to slow down the spread and stop the rapid loss of lives. There was a lot of misinformation, technical information mixed in with the truth. Scientists were busy studying and passing on information as quickly as they could to a world of people trying to grasp what was going on.

Dr. Hugues Fidel Batsielilit watched with the rest of us as the world crumbled from what seemed like a common flu. The only difference is that he watched with an expertise’s eye. He saw how the world reacted and the different measures countries took to protect their citizens. Dr. Batsielilt focused his interest on Africa, Haiti and the US Virgin Islands. His aim with this book is to analyze the response of both people and governments as well as the lull after the height. He also aims to make some projections, provide the reader with some idea of what the future might look like from an expert’s point of view.

The one thing you will note about this book is the detail with which this book is written. The author is direct and provides all the information to his readers. He makes sure that readers have the full story and the data to fully grasp what he is discussing. This combined with in-depth research leads to the revelation of interesting discoveries. Not all the discoveries he found were beneficial, he uncovered a lot of conspiracy theories and discusses those as well in order to debunk the myth for readers.

How Did It All Start?

As human beings, it is only natural to wonder where we came from and how we came about. It is only natural to wonder about the Earth and its history. Biku Ghosh has contributed to the conversation with an enlightening book that provides an exploration of the origin of the earth that the average person can understand. The author Biku Ghosh has done extensive research and provides a lot of great ideas to ponder.

This book reads like a campfire story session. It contains different origin stories from around the world, from Africa to Europe and Asia, and I found them all to be fascinating. It provides interesting insight into the beliefs of different communities. Although, a common element is a deity as the originator of the world. The Slavic creation story is especially funny in that it suggests that mountains came about as the devil coughed and fell over while trying to scamper away.

The author seems committed to presenting a well-rounded book. He begins the book with the scientific basis of the history of the planets. It also provides a historical account of the evolution of human beings. He ends the book with a catalog of interesting facts about Antarctica like the Blood Falls and diamonds floating in the air, for example. All of this is intellectually invigorating and provides plenty of food for thought.

Like all human beings, the author admits that no one really knows much about where everything came from and what was there before the Big Bang. His is a simplified account of what is known about the origin of planets and evolution. He strikes a delicate balance between scientific lingo and symbolism making the book more palatable.

How Did It All Start is not a menu of conspiracy theories, it is a museum of beliefs and scientific findings. It is a literary presentation of conversations we have all had in our heads. It is an excellent source for interesting tidbits to share with friends over wine under the stars.

It’s Really About Time

It's Really About Time: The Science of Time Travel by [John Oliver Ryan]

You will appreciate science a lot more once you read John Oliver Ryan’s, It’s Really About Time: The Science of Time Travel. The author does an excellent job of explaining complex terms and theories relating to time travel. This book will provide detailed but easy to understand explanations that will teach readers about science, time travel, how the past, present, and future link. Author John Oliver Ryan is thorough in his work and everything in the book is based on facts and proven theories. This book will open your eyes and help readers appreciate what the universe has offered.

This enlightening scientific resource is divided into various sections where the author discusses a dozen topics in depth. I enjoyed the introduction part of the book as the author provided a little background and history of things. The first section is about relative motion, principles of relativity and related topics. This section was eye opening and refreshing to read. You get to learn why science is important and how scientists solve issues or unravel mysteries of the world.

The author uses a plethora of resources to compile the information in the book. I feel that I learned a lot and even became more curious about subjects like waves, time traveling, scientists that made huge impacts in history and various theories and formulas. Anyone that reads this book will be able to discuss the science of time travel like they have been studying it.

This is an amazing book for readers, like me, that love science fiction and jump at every opportunity to learn how those sci-fi fantasies can become a reality. The book is also interesting thanks to the short stories that the author squeezes in while expounding on the various subjects.

It’s Really About Time is a fun and enlightening book that showcases John Oliver Ryan amazing ability as an engaging science communicator.

Out Of Time

Out of Time: Predicting the Science of Future Centuries and Millenia educates readers on the universe and how it is infinite and eternal, but scientifically created. It is written by Australian author Rodney Bartlett, who describes himself as a ‘citizen scientist’. It is clear that the author is very passionate and knowledgeable about this subject.

Out of Time has a simple to follow structure; it is structured into chapters, sections and subsections. These are all detailed in the Table of Contents at the beginning of the text, enabling the reader to select specific chapters or subsections to read.  Some of the chapters are long, whilst others are quite short, dependent on the subject. Overall the text is well structured, and tighter editing of the sentences would enhance its readability.

In this illuminating book the author switches from using scientific and mathematical phrases and jargon to more conversational language, which keeps things moving but consistently informative. The choice of more informal language allows the book to be more accessible to a wider audience.

I appreciated the numerous references provided throughout the book, which indicates that the authors has researched this topic thoroughly, and it allowed me to follow the subject in other text which greatly expanded my understanding of the ideas discussed. I think that consistent formatting in the reference lists would allow readers to find the article or book easier if they want to do further research.

There are multiple references to well-known scientists throughout the book such as; Isaac Newton, Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, Galileo, and Kepler. This is helpful in linking older scientific research with newer scientific theories and theories and I liked how this placed the work in historical context and gave the impression that this idea transcends time.

Out of Time: Predicting the Science of Future Centuries and Millenia is a well-researched and highly enlightening book. The author makes a very complex subject accessible to everyday readers. It is always a pleasure to read a book written by such a passionate author.

Twinkle’s Starlight

Twinkle's Starlight by [Rachael Higgins, Carole Higgins]

Twinkle, once a brightly shining star high in the night sky, is now alone on a journey to find himself again. He is like no one else now but refuses to give up his mission to rejoin the other stars and illuminate all around him. As Twinkle searches for the light he has been promised exists for him, he encounters one planet after another. Each of the planets explains in no uncertain terms that they cannot give him what he seeks, but each directs him toward Sol, the sun. Twinkle’s journey is long, and he is persistent; the lesson he learns is an important one.

Twinkle’s Starlight, written by Rachael Higgins and illustrated by Carole Higgins, is a beautifully illustrated children’s science fiction book that perfectly balances fact and fantasy. The sweet story of Twinkle’s journey to find his light leaves readers with the distinct feeling of hope, motivating them to persist in all things. Though an unlikely character and one who is different from any other in a children’s science fiction story, Twinkle fits in nicely with this genre and provides young readers with an oddly lovable character to champion.

As an elementary teacher, I was pleasantly surprised at the mixture of fiction and nonfiction in Higgins’s work. From cover to cover, teachers will be able to use Twinkle’s Starlight to easily illustrate elements of both fiction works and nonfiction text. I can see Higgins’s book being used as part of a science curriculum or as an integral part of an interdisciplinary text set for ages 6-10. Twinkle’s Starlight makes for a fantastic classroom read aloud.

Carole Higgins has done a wonderful job of illustrating Twinkle’s adventure. The paintings are quite striking and add to the nonfiction feel of the tale. While colorful and appealing to the eye, they are true to the images students will most likely have seen in their science texts. The illustrator’s style and choice of color schemes make the illustrations especially eye-catching. Every other page has a beautiful canvas painting of stars, planets and space that are all one-of-a-kind.

The stunning illustrations and touching story will have young readers asking for more from Twinkle. The message throughout Twinkle’s Starlight is a strong one and definitely one that will resonate with elementary students.

Secret Knowledge of Creation

Robert J. Flower
Robert J. Flower PhD Author Interview

Decoding the Holy Grail introduces the “Potential Molecule” and presents a unified “Theory of Everything” that highlights the connections between science, philosophy, civilization and religion. How did this idea begin and change as you developed it?

My search for the truth started it all—the real truth, not mine. After several mystical events occurred in my life, I directed myself to ancient sites and sacred scriptures…there was a math, geometry that was evident to me. Eventually a geneticist contacted me and told me the science I was uncovering was related to his work in biological cellular development. We determined the scriptures, including factors such as the Holy Grail, held this unknown secret knowledge of creation…over the years I came to see that this process was directly connected to thinking and behavioral patterns, and that the geometry of this process defined a cell itself: one that was not yet visible to science but has all the potential of reality within it—hence, the Potential Molecule.

I felt like there is a great deal to be gained by reading your book. What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your book?

My hope is that people will understand that the power of Potential exists in their daily reality, and that they adapt the Philosophy of Potential as a central focus of their daily lives.

Why was this an important book for you to write?

The importance of the book was first to uncover the hidden meaning behind the Holy Grail and other mysteries. Additionally, I wanted to prove and display that the human psyche has so much greater power and control than people ordinarily believe, that there is a much deeper meaning to life.

Do you plan to write more books on this same subject? Or do you have other topics you would like to write about?

I have follow up plans for the book…actual examples and scientific studies of the Potential Molecule at work in people’s lives. I am also developing a computer model which dictates where, when and how space portals function.
