Written in the mindset of a kid growing up in the '60s and '70s, "When We Were Kids" takes the reader along on a bike ride to a simpler and more innocent time. Share the excitements, the disappointments, the youthful wonder and the never-ending enthusiasm of a young mind that was always focused on the next "plan of action". From tree houses to B-B guns, box turtles to rocketships, discovery and a passion for adventure were always the order for the day. Not all was happiness. Though there may not have been a Frankenstein in the basement or weird green hair from outer space, there was a very real monster to overcome and all too close to home. No monster can keep a good kid down, though. Take a simple idea, add a touch of imagination, then toss in Marty, the kid from across the street and you've got the perfect recipe for adventure. It's "Damn the torpedoes and full-speed ahead!"

When We Were Kids is a book of original essays by celebrated third culture thinkers - scientists who, through their work and writing, are taking the place of the traditional intellectual in rendering visible the deeper meanings of our lives, redefining who and what we are. The authors, all of whom are world-class scientists, are also well-known as authors of books for the general public. The subject and starting point for these 27 essays is the subtitle of the book, but while the narratives focus on early influences and experiences, the essays are informed by the same kind of intelligent scientific thinking and writing for which the contributors are renowned. They include Paul Davies (The Cosmic Blueprint), Richard Dawkins (A Devil's Chaplain), Daniel C. Dennett, (Freedom Evolves), Freeman Dyson (Disturbing the Universe), Murray Gell-Mann (The Quark and the Jaguar), Marc D. Hauser (Wild Minds), Nicholas Humphrey (Conscious Regained), Lynn Margulis (Acquiring Genomes), Marvin Minsky (The Society of Mind), Steven Pinker (The Blank State), V. S.

When I first decided to compile a Chronicle of Pittsburgh's Children personalities of the fifties and sixties, I looked forward to a fun time of assembling and putting in order all materials supplied from those who are included in the publication my search soon turned into frustration and disappointment. I discovered that TV stations decided that space was more important than TV History-- I learned that thousands of photographs were trashed and tossed into dumpsters because stations needed space. I have often been asked why the stations didn't replay some of the old shows on the air."" Adventure time with Paul Shannon, ""Funsville"or Popeye "and Knish, or "Happy's Party."How about episodes of Ricki& Copper"" or Junior High Quiz." Fat Chance !Because, the stations dumped the tapes and films of those programs, They got discarded -destroyed- thrown away, trashed! Stations dumped TV history because they said they said they needed the space. Some shows were on two inch Ampex tape, that took a lot of shelf space . and the machines to play those tapes were also discarded because they became obsolete. Today, You can get hours of information on a CD that you could stuff in your back pocket ..Those pinheads running TV didn't have the sense to save and store history, . How simple it would be to edit and broadcast again. Those shows made Thousands of dollars in sales for the stations, And could do it again . Simple editing of old shows would be a delight and so simple;"TV Land " re-runs such shows as "Redd Fox, All in the family," and other popular shows.""Rifleman," ""Bonanza"" "Little house on the prairie."Wonder how those shows are stored..?. Many of the included photos of Children's TV personalities of were supplied by the people themselves from their own personal files and scrapbooks. Personal gratitude goes to Jean Connelly, Don Riggs, Ricki Wertz, and David Newell of Family Communications at WQED-TV, also Delores Ellenberg of the Carnegie Museum of Pittsburgh. their sear
The religion of Islam is now an American phenomenon. Once thought to be primarily a way of life of the Arabs and a faith alien to the Judeo-Christian heritage of this country, it has grown to a sufficient size and must be counted as one of the prominent and rapidly-growing religious movements in America. This ethnography of immigrant Muslims considers five Northeastern communities in detail. The investigation, including numerous interviews with members of these communities, provides a highly personalized look at what it means to be a believing, practicing Muslim in America at a time when Islam is under the critical scrutiny of international news. The authors describe the institutions and leadership of American Islam, Muslim law and its applications in the American context, examining the kinds of problems that beset Muslims trying to observe the elements of their faith in a potentially difficult environment. The intimations of family life and the roles and relationships of men and women are thoroughly detailed as well.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Karen Kingsbury comes a classic story about second chances, featuring the beloved Baxter family and a young father who finds his whole world turned upside down on the eve of his divorce. What if you could see into the future and know what will happen tomorrow, if you really walk out that door today. Pay attention. Life is not a dress rehearsal. From their first meeting, to their stunning engagement and lavish wedding, to their happily-ever-after, Noah and Emily Carter seemed meant to be. They have a special kind of love—and they want the world to know. More than a million adoring fans have followed their lives on Instagram since the day Noah publicly proposed to Emily. But behind the carefully staged photos and encouraging posts, their life is anything but a fairytale, and Noah’s obsession with social media has ruined everything. Distraught, Emily reaches out to her friend Kari Baxter Taylor and tells her the truth: Noah and Emily have decided to call it quits. He is leaving in the morning. But when Noah wakes the next day, everything is different. Emily is gone and the kids are years older. Like Scrooge in A Christmas Carol, bizarre and strange events continue throughout the night so that Noah is certain he’s twenty years older, and he is desperate for a second chance. Now it would take a miracle to return to yesterday. When We Were Young is a rare and beautiful love story that takes place in a single day. It’s about knowing what tomorrow will bring if you really walk out that door today—and the gift of being able to choose differently.
