Bobby just sits there waiting and watching as Drake continues to tease the two girls, making them struggle more and more as their anger peaks and their faces are so red they look like a couple of over inflated balloons about to pop. They are so infuriated that they don't even notice that John and Rob have stepped the two of them into a small wading pool in front of Drake. It is then when the two girls are ready to explode with anger, that with one lightning fast movement, Drake jumps to his feet and severs both of their heads cleanly off with a machete he had next to his couch. Their smooth bodies just hang their motionless in space for an instant, like headless mannequins on a rack waiting to be dressed and placed in a display window

<I>Religion, Law, and the Present Water Crisis documents current and impending global water shortages and opposes policies of commodification and privatization of water ownership by multinational water corporations. On the basis of the religions of the world, Richard A. Hughes appeals to pure, running water as a symbol of the sacred. Furthermore, he argues that all bodies of freshwater are commons and that they should be protected by the public trust doctrine. In addition, he contends that there is a right to water and that this right is independent, free-standing, and the prerequisite of other human rights, applying to all states and occupied territories. The increasing acidification of the oceans makes it mandatory to protect them under the reserved water right doctrine and to designate them as -national parks- of the seas.<BR> More generally, this book presents a synthesis of water studies and encompasses the religions of the world, theologies of baptism, American water law doctrines, public trust doctrine with special attention to Islamic water law, and international water law treaties. Clean water is a necessity of life. Therefore, it is compelling to recognize the urgency of water scarcity and the need to guarantee the purity of and accessibility to water for all people."

The existentialists presented a philosophical approach which raised questions and illustrated ideas that addressed the grounds and essence of human existence. Among the questions were those that related to the essences of truth, being, human existence, freedom, and of love. The major purpose of this book, is the attempt to counter the expansive reign of the 'passion for the mediocre'. The authors hold that the widespread acceptance of mediocrity effaces all excellence, degrades everyday human existence, and ruins spiritual life. The manner here of countering mediocrity is to present and carefully think about the thought-provoking questions and enlightening ideas which existentialists brought up and studied. The first section of this book looks at the relevance of three existentialist ideas for life in society. These being beauty, the revolt of the masses, and friendship. In the second section the book brings forth ideas that should enrich educational thought and enhance teaching. The last part addresses learning as a personally enhancing process. Rivca Gordon is an independent scholar who has co-authored six books with Haim Gordon. She has also published articles on existentialist philosophy and existentialist thinking in professional journals.

The role of oxidative stress in human disease has become an area of intense interest. Free radicals, a normal product of metabolism, exist in all aerobic cells in balance with biochemical antioxidants. Environmental stress increases the levels of free radicals drastically, thereby disturbing the equilibrium between free radical production and the antioxidant capability causing oxidative stress. Over the years, ROS has been implicated in the pathologies of various diseases like cancer, neurological disorder, cardiovascular diseases rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes etc. This book provides an in depth critical state-of-art reviews from established investigators on free radicals, ROS associated pathogenesis of human diseases, biomarkers of oxidative damage, antioxidants, phytonutrients and other related health concerns of modern society. The present book is aimed at graduate students, researchers in academia, industry and clinicians with the interest in redox biology. Special attention has been devoted to the topic of ROS signalling, oxidative stress induced human pathologies & antioxidative therapies. The book consists of four parts in specified topics based on the current literatures for the better understanding of the readers with respect to their subject-wise interests. The first section of the book provides an overview about the ROS production and their measuring tools and techniques followed by the mechanisms involved in the oxidative stress in the second section. The third section describes the involvement of oxidative stress in different human diseases and the last section focuses on the different strategies to ameliorate oxidative stress induced stress.
