The passion between Mel and Ty is undeniable. But do they have the love to go the distance? Melissa Cruz has been in love with Tyler Gelson, her best friend's Sex God of an older brother, since ... well, since forever. She's let Tyler slip away in the past, her fears getting the best of her. But this time, this time she is determined to get what she wants and what she wants is a second chance at love. There is only one problem. Tyler lives miles away. Is love worth packing everything up and leaving her family and best friend behind? Tyler Gelson has admired his little sister's spitfire of a friend, Melissa Cruz, since the day she brought her home. Over the years he watched her turn from gangly kid into one hell of a hot woman and he has definitely taken notice. He has fallen and he has fallen hard. But with love comes decisions and he may have to make the biggest one of all. Is love worth leaving his dream job and moving back home? When unexpected news comes their way, will a long distance relationship be too much to handle? Or will these soul-mates prove that the love they share is more than just what happens Between The Sheets? (Although, that's pretty damn good too.)

Social network analysis is used widely in the social sciences to study interactions among people, groups, and organizations, yet until now there has been no book that shows behavioral biologists how to apply it to their work on animal populations. Exploring Animal Social Networks provides a practical guide for researchers, undergraduates, and graduate students in ecology, evolutionary biology, animal behavior, and zoology. Existing methods for studying animal social structure focus either on one animal and its interactions or on the average properties of a whole population. This book enables researchers to probe animal social structure at all levels, from the individual to the population. No prior knowledge of network theory is assumed. The authors give a step-by-step introduction to the different procedures and offer ideas for designing studies, collecting data, and interpreting results. They examine some of today's most sophisticated statistical tools for social network analysis and show how they can be used to study social interactions in animals, including cetaceans, ungulates, primates, insects, and fish. Drawing from an array of techniques, the authors explore how network structures influence individual behavior and how this in turn influences, and is influenced by, behavior at the population level. Throughout, the authors use two software packages--UCINET and NETDRAW--to illustrate how these powerful analytical tools can be applied to different animal social organizations.

The battle for the souls of men is fierce and the battle line is drawn. Global Union Pentecostal Ministries (a.k.a Solution Arena) is the Church of the Moment. The church is marching on, but Capone Diabolos, the gate keeper of hell, is not folding his hands. The church hierarchy, led by Bishop Charles Richmond, has been infiltrated and many are deceived. The quest for power, position, and prosperity, as well as the focus on miracles, signs, and wonders, has left the church bereft of true disciples. But who will defend the church from the enemy within? The tares and wheat must come to harvest and every man will be rewarded accordingly, for God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.

You can use this book to design a house for yourself with your family; you can use it to work with your neighbors to improve your town and neighborhood; you can use it to design an office, or a workshop, or a public building. And you can use it to guide you in the actual process of construction. After a ten-year silence, Christopher Alexander and his colleagues at the Center for Environmental Structure are now publishing a major statement in the form of three books which will, in their words, "lay the basis for an entirely new approach to architecture, building and planning, which will we hope replace existing ideas and practices entirely." The three books are The Timeless Way of Building, The Oregon Experiment, and this book, A Pattern Language. At the core of these books is the idea that people should design for themselves their own houses, streets, and communities. This idea may be radical (it implies a radical transformation of the architectural profession) but it comes simply from the observation that most of the wonderful places of the world were not made by architects but by the people. At the core of the books, too, is the point that in designing their environments people always rely on certain "languages," which, like the languages we speak, allow them to articulate and communicate an infinite variety of designs within a forma system which gives them coherence. This book provides a language of this kind. It will enable a person to make a design for almost any kind of building, or any part of the built environment. "Patterns," the units of this language, are answers to design problems (How high should a window sill be? How many stories should a building have? How much space in a neighborhood should be devoted to grass and trees?). More than 250 of the patterns in this pattern language are given: each consists of a problem statement, a discussion of the problem with an illustration, and a solution. As the authors say in their introduction, many of the patterns are archetypal, so deeply rooted in the nature of things that it seemly likely that they will be a part of human nature, and human action, as much in five hundred years as they are today.
