"13 Hours" zeichnet die Attacke islamistischer Milizen auf das US-Konsulat sowie den CIA-Stützpunkt in Bengasi, Libyen, in der Nacht vom 11. auf den 12. September 2012 nach - auf den Tag genau elf Jahre nach 9/11. 13 Stunden dauerte der Angriff. Sechs von der CIA angeheuerte Sicherheitsleute - Ex-Marines, -SEALs und -Army-Ranger - versuchen eine Tragödie abzuwenden. Doch der amerikanische Botschafter J. Christopher Stevens und drei weitere Männer sterben bei dem Angriff. Umgehend wird heftige Kritik an US-Präsident Barack Obama und der damaligen Außenministerin Hillary Clinton laut - das Thema wird im Präsidentschaftswahlkampf 2016 eine Rolle spielen. Das Buch entstand unter Mitarbeit der Männer des Security Teams. Es wurde von "Transformers"-Regisseur Michael Bay verfilmt. Der Film kommt am 4. Februar 2016 in die deutschen Kinos.

Summary, Analysis & Review of Mitchell Zuckoff’s 13 Hours by Instaread Preview: 13 Hours by Mitchell Zuckoff and the surviving members of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) annex in Benghazi is a narrative recounting of the events surrounding the militant attacks on the Benghazi diplomatic compound and the nearby CIA annex on September 11 and 12, 2012. These attacks resulted in the deaths of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, State Department communications expert Sean Smith, and two CIA Global Response Staff (GRS) members, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. A similar attack had occurred on June 5, 1967, but British soldiers were able to rescue all Americans at the Benghazi consulate. Modern Libya is divided between a disparate east and west, still experiencing the consequences of colonial rule, uneven distribution of oil wealth, and a military coup that put Muammar al-Gaddafi in power. In 2011, Libyans joined the Arab Spring revolutions. They forced Gaddafi into hiding, found him, and killed him. Following the revolution, Benghazans were generally positive toward Americans… PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary, analysis & review of the book and NOT the original book.

As science advances at breakneck speed, it becomes harder to make new discoveries and chart uncharted territory. Yet The Deep Pull: A Major Advance in the Science of Ocean Tides does just that. This book offers the world a new model of tide formation that can actually find a pattern in previously unintelligible tide data and be applied to both oceanic and atmospheric tides. At the heart of this new model is a new theory on where lunisolar gravitational forces act. With this simple key, the author opens a new way of understanding a centuries-old science. Written for anyone with an interest in the mechanics behind natural phenomena, Walter Hayduk takes the readers through his thought process behind his new discovery. His accessible and engaging, step-by-step manner of uncovering a new paradigm through the exploration of data, analogies, and natural phenomena – from the Bay of Fundy’s incredible tides to tornadoes – provides the reader with the excitement of his or her own eureka moment of understanding the secret of the tides.

In 1986, Cam Tribolet was on his way home from a night of drinking when, at a Ft. Wayne, Indiana, stoplight, three men tried to carjack him. During the assault, Cam was shot three times in the stomach. One bullet ripped through his aorta, another lodged near his back, and the third tore through his bowels, spewing infection throughout his body. Cam’s family was informed that he probably wouldn’t survive the night. But he did. In the days and weeks that followed, both of Cam’s legs would be amputated above the knee. He would endure thirty-six operations and require resuscitation thirteen times. His fiancée would break up with him in the hospital. He would become addicted to drugs to deal with the pain. And he would face the loss of his career. He would even contemplate suicide. But God was not done with Cam Tribolet. During his remarkable recovery, Cam befriended and eventually married his physical therapist, Sue, who was instrumental in helping him to find God and begin living again. Since then, his disability has not slowed him down. Cam became an engineer. He and Sue had one child and adopted another from Russia. Cam became an engineer, a father, a downhill skier, and more. Born out of tragedy, Cam’s life is fuller and more rewarding than he ever imagined it could be. His story of redemption, perseverance, and hope is for anyone who needs to discover that our God is a God of amazing second chances.

Since the publication of the first edition in 2002, there has been an explosion of new findings and applications in the field of photobiology. This brand new edition is fully updated, includes new references, and offers five new chapters for a comprehensive look at photobiology. The chapters cover all areas of photobiology, photochemistry, and the relationship between light and biology. The book starts with the physics and chemistry of light and then deals with the evolution of photosynthesis. Four chapters deal with how organisms use light for their orientation in space and time. There are also several medically oriented chapters and two chapters specifically aimed at the photobiology educator.
