Book excerpt: FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED NOVEL, SCARED TO DEATH, COMES HIS LATEST PAGE-TURNER Luke Beckett is anything but your average Hollywood vice squad detective. A cop who refuses to play the game, he is like some Avenging Angel always quick to judge, and to punish with his rock-hard fists those who don’t see his way. Forced to resign after a prostitute bust goes awry, he accepts a police lieutenant position in that God-forsaken place, Palm Springs, where there is hardly enough action to keep his blood circulating. That all changes when his ex-wife Marcia, since re-married to an aging American tycoon and one of Palm Springs’ wealthiest, most influential residents, is found murdered at a swank party under suspicious circumstances with hardly a clue. Assigned to investigate her murder, this short-tempered, superbly trained former big city cop finds more than he expects—a secret romance with a lesbian lover and possible mob connections to her untimely death and assassination attempt on his own life—in this engaging, thought-provoking original hard-boiled mystery.

The tall, blonde, blue-eyed journalist, hired to boost her station's ratings, gets her chance when legendary actor Rex Hampton turns up dead at the first gathering of six Hollywood movie legends during the screening of his favorite movie. Hampton becomes the first in a series of macabre murders. Three more movie giants from the group drop dead, under mysterious circumstances, at successive film screenings. Something on the screen, something in those movies, made their hearts stop. An unexplained phenomenon? A ghost? What? Believing all four deaths are related, Matrix proves it, as she unmasks the perpetrator behind the evil in this original Hollywood whodunit.<br><br><b>REVIEWS</b><br><br>"SCARED TO DEATH is a delightful Hollywood cozy mystery written from the inside. Although Lenburg's characters are fictional, his extensive knowledge of the lifestyle of the rich and famous comes into play. His characters are recognizable without being real, and the mystery itself is a plot that weaves in and out of the Hollywood mystique. -- <i>Midwest Book Review</i><br><br>"Fans of Old Hollywood know Jeff Lenburg as a first-class chronicler of long-ago Tinseltown and its larger-than-life denizens. SCARED TO DEATH shows that he's just as adept in a fictional setting, evoking both a sense of wonder and a delicious sense of dread. Anyone who loves classic movies will love this novel!" -John Wooley, author, AWASH IN BLOOD</p>

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book offers a comprehensive introduction to Nature of Science (NOS), one of the most important aspects of science teaching and learning, and includes tested strategies for teaching aspects of the NOS in a variety of instructional settings. In line with the recommendations in the field to include NOS in all plans for science instruction, the book provides an accessible resource of background information on NOS, rationales for teaching these targeted NOS aspects, and – most importantly – how to teach about the nature of science in specific instructional contexts. The first section examines the why and what of NOS, its nature, and what research says about how to teach NOS in science settings. The second section focuses on extending knowledge about NOS to question of scientific method, theory-laden observation, the role of experiments and observations and distinctions between science, engineering and technology. The dominant theme of the remainder of the book is a focus on teaching aspects of NOS applicable to a wide variety of instructional environments.

Download or read book A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, Eighth Edition written by Kate L. Turabian and published by University of Chicago Press. This book was released on 2013-04-09 with total page 464 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A little more than seventy-five years ago, Kate L. Turabian drafted a set of guidelines to help students understand how to write, cite, and formally submit research writing. Seven editions and more than nine million copies later, the name Turabian has become synonymous with best practices in research writing and style. Her Manual for Writers continues to be the gold standard for generations of college and graduate students in virtually all academic disciplines. Now in its eighth edition, A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations has been fully revised to meet the needs of today’s writers and researchers. The Manual retains its familiar three-part structure, beginning with an overview of the steps in the research and writing process, including formulating questions, reading critically, building arguments, and revising drafts. Part II provides an overview of citation practices with detailed information on the two main scholarly citation styles (notes-bibliography and author-date), an array of source types with contemporary examples, and detailed guidance on citing online resources. The final section treats all matters of editorial style, with advice on punctuation, capitalization, spelling, abbreviations, table formatting, and the use of quotations. Style and citation recommendations have been revised throughout to reflect the sixteenth edition of The Chicago Manual of Style. With an appendix on paper format and submission that has been vetted by dissertation officials from across the country and a bibliography with the most up-to-date listing of critical resources available, A Manual for Writers remains the essential resource for students and their teachers.
