At the turn of the twentieth century W.E.B. DuBois predicted that the central problem facing the United States in the new century would be that of the "color line." Now, at the beginning of a new century, we find many people straddling the color line. These people come from the growing number of multiracial families in America, families who search for places of comfort and familiarity in a racially polarized society whose educational system, places of worship, and neighborhoods continue to suffer a de facto segregation. This group has provoked an ever-widening debate and an upheaval in traditional racial thinking in the United States. Through in-depth interviews with individuals from black-white multiracial families, and insightful sociological analysis, Heather M. Dalmage examines the challenges faced by people living in such families and explores how their experiences demonstrate the need for rethinking race in America. She examines the lived reality of race in the ways multiracial family members construct and describe their own identities and sense of community and politics. She shows how people whose own very lives complicate the idea of the color line must continually negotiate and contest it in order not to reproduce it. Their lack of language to describe their multiracial existence, along with their experience of coping with racial ambiguity and with institutional demands to conform to a racially divided, racist system is the central theme of Tripping on the Color Line. By connecting the stories to specific issues, such as census categories, transracial adoption, intermarriage, as well as the many social responses to violations of the color line, Dalmage raises the debate to a broad discussion on racial essentialism and social justice. Exploring the dynamic of race as it pervades the lives of those close to the color line, Dalmage argues that the struggle for racial justice must include an understanding that race is a complex construct that is constantly shifting, and is something we do rather than something we simply are.

On the Internet, seekers investigate anonymous manifestos that focus on the findings of brilliant scientists said to have discovered pathways into alternate realities. Gathering on web forums, researchers not only share their observations, but also report having anomalous experiences, which they believe come from their online involvement with these veiled documents. Seeming logic combines with wild twists of lost Moorish science and pseudo-string theory. Enthusiasts insist any obstacle to revelation is a sure sign of great and wide-reaching efforts by consensus powers wishing to suppress all the liberating truths in the Incunabula Papers (included here in complete form). In Legend-Tripping Online, Michael Kinsella explores these and other extraordinary pursuits. This is the first book dedicated to legend-tripping, ritual quests in which people strive to explore and find manifest the very events described by supernatural legends. Through collective performances, legend-trippers harness the interpretive frameworks these stories provide and often claim incredible, out-of-this-world experiences that in turn perpetuate supernatural legends. Legends and legend-tripping are assuming tremendous prominence in a world confronting new speeds of diversification, connection, and increasing cognitive load. As guardians of tradition as well as agents of change, legends and the ordeals they inspire contextualize ancient and emergent ideas, behaviors, and technologies that challenge familiar realities. This book analyzes supernatural legends and the ways in which the sharing spirit of the Internet collectivizes, codifies, and makes folklore of fantastic speculation.

With a new foreword by Dr. Dominic D'Agostino, PhD and epilogue by the author A masterful synchronization of history and cutting-edge science shines new light on humanity's darkest diagnosis. In the wake of the Cancer Genome Atlas project's failure to provide a legible roadmap to a cure for cancer, science writer Travis Christofferson illuminates a promising blend of old and new perspectives on the disease. Tripping over the Truth follows the story of cancer’s proposed metabolic origin from the vaunted halls of the German scientific golden age to modern laboratories around the world. The reader is taken on a journey through time and science that results in an unlikely connecting of the dots with profound therapeutic implications. Transporting us on a rich narrative of humanity’s struggle to understand the cellular events that conspire to form malignancy, Tripping over the Truth reads like a detective novel, full of twists and cover-ups, blind-alleys and striking moments of discovery by men and women with uncommon vision, grit, and fortitude. Ultimately, Christofferson arrives at a conclusion that challenges everything we thought we knew about the disease, suggesting the reason for the failed war against cancer stems from a flawed paradigm that categorizes cancer as an exclusively genetic disease. For anyone affected by this terrifying disease and the physicians who struggle to treat it, this book provides a fresh and hopeful perspective. It explores the new and exciting non-toxic therapies born from the emerging metabolic theory of cancer. These therapies may one day prove to be a turning point in the struggle against our ancient enemy. We are shown how the metabolic theory redraws the battle map, directing researchers to approach cancer treatment from a different angle, framing it more like a gentle rehabilitation rather than all-out combat. In a sharp departure from the current “targeted” revolution occurring in cancer pharmaceuticals, the metabolic therapies highlighted have one striking feature that sets them apart—the potential to treat all types of cancer because they exploit the one weakness that is common to every cancer cell: dysfunctional metabolism. With contributions from Thomas Seyfried, PhD, author of Cancer as a Metabolic Disease; Miriam Kalamian, EdM, MS, CNS, author of Keto for Cancer; and Beth Zupec Kania, consultant nutritionist of The Charlie Foundation.

Diagnosed with a rare eye disorder in the third grade, Charlie's self-esteem began to unravel by the thread. He wouldn't have a future as a detective like his hero, Magnum P.I. He would never soar in a jet fighter like he dreamed. He would never drive a race car and see the checkered flag wave. College was out of the question, because he just wasn't smart enough. At least that's what the teachers told him. Only a God who was unusually cruel would shatter the dreams of a little boy by creating him defective. It was the only explanation that made any sense, and it was a crushing blow. If God didn't care about him, why should he care about himself? And so began Charlie's freefall into a world of negative self-talk and ultimately addiction. A self-destructive plummet that would see him cheat death twice as he marched to the precipice of suicide. Raw and brutally honest, Tripping into the Light is a tale of soaring triumphs and heartbreaking defeat. It illustrates the power of true love and the undying spirit of hope. It is about one man's willingness to try just one more time, when it seemed all was lost. Through Charlie's eyes, we see that all things are possible if we are willing to roll up our sleeves and do the work. www.TrippingIntoTheLight.com

Leningrad, July 1980. As the USSR gets bogged down in its invasion of Afghanistan, the KGB sees an opportunity to crack down on its opponents. Quiet, industrious scientist Mels Katz seems perfectly suited for the job--perfectly expendable, that is. But when Katz refuses to present a bogus technical paper at a conference just prior to the Moscow Olympics, the KGB´s vengeance will send him on a riverboat journey into the heart of darkness of the Soviet Union. Unwittingly involved in a plot to "Trip the Ballerina," lead by a mysterious KGB general, Katz tracks the author of the technical paper to the Caucasus. With no allies except an Armenian crime boss and the Uzbeki dancer who loves him, Mels must rescue his daughter from KGB headquarters. Rebuffed by the U.S. Consulate, whom he finds to be involved in the scheme, his only chance of escape is if he can swap identities with a young conscript en route to Kandahar.

This book is about racism and abuse in the criminal justice penal system in Connecticut. The story line is about abusive and racist treatment against one African American man who was incarcerated for crimes that he committed in society. This man suffered from a medical condition that caused him to suffer with blackouts and it was during these incidents that this man was assaulted and abused. In spite of starting a letter-writing campaign to seek assistance, this man was unable to obtain any type of legal assistance for the crimes being committed against him by prison guards who are now called police. These crimes were committed over a ten-year period (1992-2010). This inmate suffered from grand mal seizures which contributed to him having blackouts. (Grand mal seizures are caused by abnormal electrical activity throughout the brain. Most of the time grand mal seizures are caused by epilepsy). This man was assaulted by state correctional staff during these episodes and then would be given trumped up charges (i.e. assault on a correctional officer) to justify the abuses he suffered by staff. He was once informed by another inmate that, in his opinion, they were really trying to kill him. This happened in one of the most racist prisons in Connecticut, which is Cheshire Correctional Institution. This man would wake up with black eyes, busted lips, and missing teeth. One time he woke up in the medical unit with the whole right side of his face swollen and his eye swollen shut. He thought it was from the seizures or blackouts only to find out that he was being assaulted by the correction officers. In another incident, he was incarcerated in Bridgeport Community Correctional Institute. While being processed, he informed the medical staff that he needed to ensure that they understood the importance of giving him his seizure medication. This man informed the nurse that if he did not have this medication he would have a seizure. Well, even though he stressed the importance of having his medications, the medications were stopped and he suffered a grand mal seizure and woke up with eighteen stitches in his head. The goal of this book is to bring to the forefront the neglect and abuses that inmates suffer while supposedly being rehabilitated in the correctional system.
