Special Agent Greg Cole, a man of lethal skill, pathological appetites, and a Machiavellian intellect, who engineered the theft of the satellite. For him, retrieving its secrets would be a career-making coup and nothing; no one was going to stand in his way—friend, foe, or innocent bystander.

In this cold, unforgiving wasteland, man and machine will come face to face with a malevolent, unrelenting entity who will hunt them across ice, across oceans to the very doorstep of their homes.

The Whistling Hunters

Original Synopsis

"The Whistling Hunters has a total of 150 pages which are papers from writer 'Michael W. Fox'. The whistling dog, or dhole, of India is a little-known, distant cousin of our domestic dog. Highly intelligent, wary of man, and elusive as a jungle predator, this rare and beautiful creature is one of the most difficult animals to study. Its very nature defies the patience and skill of the most dedicated naturalist. Yet knowledge about its habits and a more widespread understanding and appreciation of this species are essential for its protection and continued survival. For, like so much of the world s wildlife today, the dhole is a species threatened with extinction. The first in-depth field study of the whistling dog, The Whistling Hunters examines the dhole in the animal s environment. The book is based on the author s field studies and the observations of other naturalists. It presents all the facts currently known about the species, as it makes a passionate plea for conservation and the reevaluation of our land-use patterns. The book is also an attempt to understand the essence of wilderness since it, too, like the whistling dog, is an endangered species." 1984 time of publication of the book, [-SUNY Press-]"

Predation

Original Synopsis

"Predation has a total of 112 pages which are papers from writer 'Source Wikipedia'. Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 52. Chapters: Ambush predator, Apex predator, Aquatic predation, Battle at Kruger, Camouflage, Chemical defense, Crypsis, Domestic sheep predation, EcoSim, Exploding animal, Functional response, Fungivore, Grazing, Lanchester's laws, List of apex predators, Lotka-Volterra equation, Mesopredator release hypothesis, Nicholson-Bailey model, Nocturnality, Pack hunter, Paradox of enrichment, Predator trap, Prey detection, Prey drive, Stomorhina, Surplus killing, Throat clamp, Trophic function, Underwater camouflage and mimicry. Excerpt: Camouflage is the use of any combination of materials, coloration or illumination for concealment, either by making animals or objects hard to see (crypsis), or by disguising them as something else (mimesis). Examples include the leopard's spotted coat, the battledress of a modern soldier, and the leaf-mimic katydid's wings. A third approach, motion dazzle, confuses the observer with a conspicuous pattern, making the object visible but momentarily harder to locate. The majority of camouflage methods aim for crypsis, often through a general resemblance to the background, high contrast disruptive coloration, eliminating shadow, and countershading. In the open ocean, where there is no background, the principal methods of camouflage are transparency, silvering, and countershading, while the ability to produce light is among other things used for counter-illumination on the undersides of cephalopods such as squid. Some animals, such as chameleons and octopuses, are capable of actively changing their skin pattern and colours; they often use this ability both for camouflage and for signalling. Military camouflage was spurred by the increasing range and accuracy of firearms in the 19th century. In particular the replacement of the inaccurate musket with the rifle made personal concealment in battle a... 2013-09 time of publication of the book, [-University-Press.org-]"

Boundaries

Original Synopsis

"Boundaries has a total of 328 pages which are papers from writer 'Christine E. Gudorf, James E. Huchingson'. In this expanded and revised edition of a fresh and original case-study textbook on environmental ethics, Christine Gudorf and James Huchingson continue to explore the line that separates the current state of the environment from what it should be in the future. Boundaries begins with a lucid overview of the field, highlighting the key developments and theories in the environmental movement. Specific cases offer a rich and diverse range of situations from around the globe, from saving the forests of Java and the use of pesticides in developing countries to restoring degraded ecosystems in Nebraska. With an emphasis on the concrete circumstances of particular localities, the studies continue to focus on the dilemmas and struggles of individuals and communities who face daunting decisions with serious consequences. This second edition features extensive updates and revisions, along with four new cases: one on water privatization, one on governmental efforts to mitigate global climate change, and two on the obstacles that teachers of environmental ethics encounter in the classroom. Boundaries also includes an appendix for teachers that describes how to use the cases in the classroom. 2010-04-15 time of publication of the book, [-Georgetown University Press-]"

Apex

Original Synopsis

"Apex has a total of 128 pages which are papers from writer 'Sherry Monahan'. This quaint, picturesque community has an interesting history. For years it was a rural hamlet with a nearby pond, simply called Log Pond. It later became Apex, and the pond was eventually drained in the name of progress. Apex appeared on the map because of the coalfields in Chatham/Lee County. The coal companies needed to get their coal to Raleigh, and around 1870, the Chatham Railroad was chugging along, right by Log Pond. It officially became Apex with the establishment of a post office. Apex put the railroad to use immediately and shipped lumber, tar, turpentine, and pitch. Early on, Apex passed a few ordinances that some might find in the Wild West, including those dealing with whiskey, gambling, and prostitution. The town suffered two fires in the early 1900s, but its residents persevered, and Apex’s small-town charm is still enjoyed today. 2009-11-16 time of publication of the book, [-Arcadia Publishing-]"

In their latest clash with Othersiders, the army of monsters nearly wiped them out. Apex City is safe for now. But within the city barriers, Joy must wage a different kind of war. The corrupt and powerful PsiCorps is determined to usurp the Hunters as chief defenders of Apex City and Joy is now squarely in their crosshairs. Unused to playing political games, she has very few people she can truly trust-not even Josh, her first friend in Apex City, who broke up with her when it became too dangerous for a Psimon to be dating a Hunter. Then Josh comes to Joy for help. He fears that Abigail Drift, the head of PsiCorps, will soon use him in her twisted experiments designed to empower PsiCorps and render Hunters superfluous--a scheme that's already killed off dozens of Psimons. Joy manages to smuggle Josh to safety, but he cannot evade Drift forever As Joy faces ever more powerful Othersiders, she is helped by the most surprising ally imaginable---the same Folk Mage she once met in battle on the train to Apex City.

Megalodon - The Mega Shark!

Original Synopsis

"Megalodon - The Mega Shark! has a total of 54 pages which are papers from writer 'Enrique Fiesta, John Davidson'. Table of Contents Introduction Chapter 1: Appearance Chapter 2: Behavior Chapter 3: Environment Conclusion Author Bio Bonus Dinosaur Content Introduction to Dinosaurs Facts about Dinosaurs Dinosaur Extinction Dinosaur Fossils Dinosaur Eggs Dinosaur Names Dinosaur Diet Feathered Dinosaurs Plant Eating Dinosaurs The Weirdest Dinosaurs The Deadliest Dinosaurs Flying Dinosaurs Kinds of Dinosaurs The Biggest Dinosaurs The Smallest Dinosaurs Author Bio Publisher Introduction Greetings young reader! Today we are going to take a step back in time and enter a long-gone age. 1.5 million years ago there lived thousands of animals that are now extinct. “Extinct” means that they no longer exist. These extinct animals are some of the most intriguing and awe-inspiring animals that have existed on our planet. Their colossal size, strange characteristics, and mysterious disappearance make them inherently worthy of study and interest. Even more than these reasons, the study of these ancient animals itself is an incredible adventure which requires intense thought and a vivid imagination. The study of ancient animals helps you to appreciate just how mysterious and amazing our planet really is. Our planet supports not only us and the animals that live today, but it even supported creatures as gigantic and strange as the dinosaurs- just think how cool that is! I hope that you bring a spirit of openness and wonder to your study of ancient animals, and that you come to appreciate the mystery and value of the natural world. The animal we are going to talk about is a species of giant shark called Megalodon that lived during a period which coincided with the Age of the Mammals. We are going to discuss all this and more in the chapters that follow. The Megalodon was the largest predator to ever exist on the planet earth. It is a popular animal because of its immense size, power, and because it is a shark! We know what we know about ancient animals from a variety of sources including fossils, biology, and other scientific disciplines. Fossils are the ancient remains of the dinosaurs, the most familiar being their bones. Biological science is the study of life in general, but many scientists compare the ancient animals to modern day animals to support their theories. The fossils of the Megalodon are mostly relegated to its teeth. We have very few other Megalodon fossils and we will talk about this later. Before a talk about extinct animals can take place it is important that we discuss the theory of evolution. Evolutionary theory supposes that all the animals we know and see today are the direct descendants of animals that existed millions of years ago. The dinosaurs and other creatures that existed millions of years ago either died out or gradually changed into different animals. For instance, birds are considered to be surviving dinosaurs because their dinosaur ancestors survived the dinosaur extinction event (we will discuss this later). The sharks we know today are descended from the Megalodon and other related mega-sharks. 2015-02-01 time of publication of the book, [-Mendon Cottage Books-]"

Edward Hunter Snow

Original Synopsis

"Edward Hunter Snow has a total of 392 pages which are papers from writer 'Thomas G. Alexander'. The life of Edward Hunter Snow (1865–1932), a leader in second-generation Mormon Utah, closely paralleled the early-twentieth-century development of the West. Born in St. George, Utah, to Julia Spencer and Mormon apostle Erastus Snow, Edward Hunter Snow was instrumental both in the development of southern Utah and in the growth of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints during a period of rapid change. In Edward Hunter Snow, the first biography of the man, noted western and Mormon historian Thomas G. Alexander presents Snow as a servant of family, church, state, and nation. Offering insights into the LDS Church around the turn of the twentieth century, Alexander narrates the events of Snow’s missions to the American South, including encounters with the Ku Klux Klan in the 1880s, and to New York. As president of the St. George Stake and church leader, Snow sought to reshape the LDS Church’s place in Utah—confining its influence to religious and cultural practices and avoiding politics. Although he was involved in numerous causes throughout his life, Snow was especially dedicated to education. A graduate of what is now Brigham Young University, he worked to ensure that the state’s children would have access to quality education. Snow founded what is now Dixie State College and, as a state senator, introduced legislation to establish what is now Southern Utah University. As the nineteenth century gave way to the twentieth, Snow helped St. George grow from an isolated cotton colony to an important stop on the main automobile route from Salt Lake City to Los Angeles. Alexander shows that rugged, southwestern Utah’s flowering into cultural and commercial maturity was due to the foresight and dedication of second-generation pioneers like Edward Hunter Snow. 2012-10-29 time of publication of the book, [-University of Oklahoma Press-]"

Monsters. Long ago, the barriers between our world and the Otherworld were ripped open, and it's taken centuries to bring back civilization in the wake of the catastrophe.

More and more monsters are getting through the barriers,and the close calls are becoming too frequent to ignore. Yet the Cits have no sense of how much danger they're in-to them, Joy and her corp of fellow Hunters are just action stars they watch on TV.

Contracts for Engineers

Original Synopsis

"Contracts for Engineers has a total of 368 pages which are papers from writer 'Robert D. Hunter'. Engineers encounter different types of contracts at nearly every turn in their careers. Contracts for Engineers: Intellectual Property, Standards, and Ethics is a tool to enhance their ability to communicate contractual issues to lawyers—and then better understand the legal advice they receive. Building on its exploration of contracts, this book expands discussion to: Patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, and other intellectual property issues Development of standards and the bodies that govern them, as well as conformity assessment and accreditation Ethics at both the micro and macro levels—a concept under major scrutiny after several major disasters, including the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the collapse of Boston’s Big Dig, and a coal-mining accident that resulted in many deaths With a brief introduction to common law contracts and their underlying principles, including basic examples, the book presents a sample of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) regarding the sale of goods. It evaluates elements of the different contracts that engineers commonly encounter, such as employee and associated consulting agreements and contracts involved in construction and government. Approaching intellectual property from a contract perspective, this reference focuses on the many different types of patents and their role in commerce.

Joy knows she'll be facing more dangerous Othersiders than ever before as a new member of the Elite Hunter unit, but if anyone is up to the challenge it's her. She's been Hunting these monsters since she was a child, and has a pack of eleven fiercely protective magical Hounds. Then the rules change.
