This is Raymond Queneaus Exercises in Style reimagined as 99 variants of the same visual narrative. Its the kind of project that (I suspect) will leave most people scratching their head and asking WTF, but that will prove irresistible to a certain very specialized subset of readers. You know who you are. Im not saying its a given that you attend Comicon, have an unsettling mastery of Star Wars arcana, or work in Information Technology. On the other hand, the reader most likely to enjoy Maddens book is someone who was already a fan of Queneau and has at least some familiarity with the conventions of the comic/graphic novel genre.You gotta admire Matt Madden for being crazy enough to dream this up and actually bring it to fruition. That said, not all of his 99 variations are successful. A few are just baffling, some are likely to resonate only with true comic book aficionados, others are dull, but there are compensating moments of sheer inspiration.I particularly enjoyed the Public Service Announcement and Paranoid Religious Tract variations, though the unquestioned winner has to be the Newly discovered fragment of the Bayeux tapestry. On the other hand, variations titled manga and digital are as predictably dull as you might imagine.Two stars for amusement value, with an extra star granted for sheer chutzpah.
Kleine Zysten der Kieferknochen heilen meist komplikationslos aus; bei einem Durchmesser von uber 1,5cm treten mitunter Probleme auf. Die Langzeitergebnisse sollten mit den Angaben der Literatur verglichen werden. Es wurden 61 Patienten mit 67 Zysten nach mindestens 6 Monaten klinisch und radiologisch nachuntersucht. Eine Auffullung des knochernen Hohlraumes erfolgte nicht. Als permanentes Defizit galten bleibende Sensibilitatsstorungen oder unvollstandige Ossifikation. Permanente Sensibilitatsstorungen traten bei 4 Patienten nach Zystektomie, nicht jedoch nach Zystostomie auf. Unvollstandige Ossifikationen wurden bei jeweils 2 Patienten nach Zystektomie bzw. Zystostomie festgestellt. Bei 2cm Durchmesser und mehr soll eine Zytostomie in Erwagung gezogen werden, um die Sensibilitat zu erhalten. Eine Auffullung des knochernen Defektes ist nicht erforderlich. Ein gelegentliches Knochendefizit kann spater durch autologen Knochen ersetzt bzw. durch Implantate ausgeglichen werden.

First published in 1973, The Psychology of Conservatism explores attitudes, their measurement, their structure and dynamics, and the personality traits apparently underlying attitude patterns. It examines the link between differing attitudes and discusses characteristic patterns and syndromes. The book focuses on the origins and dynamics of a major factor called liberalism - conservatism which is found to account for much of the variance in attitudes amongst different people. Contributors review previous studies relating to personality and attitude before engaging in new studies and proposing their own theories to explain the conservative attitude. The book introduces provocative theoretical ideas and provides a valuable examination of an important psychological and social attitude syndrome. This book will be of interest to researchers in personality and social psychology, sociology and political science and education.

Tells the story of the Air Forces involvement in the region from the end of the second World War until the major infusion of American troops into Vietnam in 1965. During these years, and most noticeably after 1961, the Air Forces principal role in Southeast Asia was to advise the Vietnamese Air Force in its struggle against insurgents seeking the collapse of the Saigon government. This story includes some issues of universal applicability to the Air Force: the role of air power in an insurgency, the most effective way to advise a foreign ally, and how to coordinate with other American agencies (both military and civilian) which are doing the same thing. It also deals with issues unique to the Vietnamese conflict: how to coordinate a centralized, technological modern air force with a feudal, decentralized, indigenous one without overwhelming it, and how best to adapt fighter, reconnaissance, airlift, and liaison planes to a jungle environment.

Allinizio del 1993, quattro ricercatori nel campo della fisica diedero il via a una serie di esperimenti nella cittadina inglese di Scole. Gli eventi che in seguito ebbero luogo furono talmente sbalorditivi che membri autorevoli della Society for Psychical Research, fra i quali figuravano ingegneri, psicologi e astrofisici, chiesero di poterli osservare, testare e registrare. Le persone che ebbero modo di assistere agli esperimenti si convinsero che forme incorporee di intelligenza inviavano loro messaggi dallaldil� . Questo libro straordinario, avvincente come un romanzo benché tutti i fenomeni di cui tratta non siano frutto di fantasia ma eventi realmente verificatisi, rivela i risultati di cinque anni di studi sulla vita dopo la morte e sui fenomeni paranormali e raccoglie la documentazione relativa allesperimento Scole con un rigore e una seriet� che rendono unica e profondamente attendibile questa testimonianza sulla vita che continua dopo la morte.

Attracted by the scent of her musk, it forces her to give it what it wants, but when she realizes that it only wants to pleasure her, she matches its sexual appetite with her own. Little does she know that it has more in mind for her than a simple night of pleasure—it wants to defile her in every way it can, and it won’t stop until she’s bred. Can she resist its overwhelming power, or will she carry the alien’s love child?This alien short story is for adults only. It contains scenes with masturbation, multiple tentacle penetration and impregnation.
