Jammu And Kashmir The Tide Turns by Col Jaibans Singh


Original Title: Jammu And Kashmir The Tide Turns

The state of Jammu and Kashmir has gone through some testing times. When terrorism was at its peak, it was confronted with a strong will and iron resolve by the people of the state who refused to get cowed down. In their endeavour to challenge the forces of evil, people found vigorous support from fellow citizens of the Indian Union and the security forces. An unfortunate facet was the politics of opportunism played out by some elements, who continue to remain out of sync with the actual aspirations of the people. This book revisits some of the main events of this millennium that have been instrumental in charting a new course for this trouble torn region. It speaks of the spirit of the people, who defied all odds for their right to live a life of freedom and dignity as an integral part of a vibrant democracy. As the book goes through various events, it provides invaluable inputs for energetic debate on the future course of action.

And The Tide Turns by Timothy Dalton


Original Title: And The Tide Turns

A mission meant to inspire hope ... and nothing is quite as it seems. When a seemingly unstoppable evil descends upon the city, Ethan Tannor must race against time to save a desperate world that may fall to ruin. April 1986. The Cold War is nearly over. Or is it? Wealthy business mogul Tobias Keane is dead in an apparent suicide. But Ethan Tannor, a detective on the scene and nephew of Keane, suspects something else. In his effort to prove murder, Ethan discovers hidden items in his uncle's safe that reveal there was more to Tobias's past than he initially thought: a strange watch that doesn't tell time, a cryptic journal, confusing newspaper clippings from years past, a cipher that points to something ominous, a worn copy of the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám, and the mysterious words "Tamám Shud". The more Ethan uncovers, the more he realizes his own life is in danger. And when he stumbles upon a shadow group that tips him off to an impending hostile takeover of the United States, Ethan finds himself in the center of something he can't explain. Political agendas headed by an enigmatic leader, and an evil force tipping the balance of power will bring him face to face with things beyond the realm of belief and possibility. As the lines of reality and fiction become blurred, Ethan embarks on the near impossible task of reshaping the world. If he fails, the battleground will be America, with new territory lines carved across the map as the victor stakes their claim. But Ethan is determined to end it where it all began: April 1986. *Language and violence AND THE TIDE TURNS is Timothy Dalton's debut novel - an action-packed thriller filled with colorful characters that will leave readers guessing as they journey with Ethan Tannor in his quest to uncover the secret behind his uncle's death ... a quest that brings him to places he never imagined, and the discovery of his uncle's strange connection to the unsolved mystery of The Somerton Man. Edited by Cyneva Dalton-Vazquez. Artwork by Matthew Dalton. Cover by Tara Dalton.

Living in the run down racing track, she was desperate to get herself and her foster sister, Squirt, out of the tyrannical Razor's control and in a better situation. Going to the club to pitch Squirt's engine to some of the top drivers had seemed like a good idea. It might have been if someone hadn't decided to kidnap her. Aquos was dying. The balance Sally had brought to their world hadn't helped him. His body was giving out and he knew it. When Turbo brought a bruised female to Sanctuary, he was surprised to find his spirit was as strong as ever. Which left him with one question ... why would a woman as beautiful, smart and strong as M.J. ever want a dying Clan Lord?

A mysterious female haunts their leader's dreams and the architect continues to develop his plan to end the Clan Lords for eternity.

A Road Out Of Naknek Part One by


Original Title: A Road Out Of Naknek Part One

"I make an annual summertime return to Naknek, a town on Bristol Bay where the salmon have made their own annual summertime return for thousands of years. My thesis is a series of nonfiction essays about my background there, both as a commercial fisherman and my upbringing. It is something I consider the "Part One" of a book still under the process of writing. It is a series of essays, alternating these two motifs of the salmon and of my experiences growing up somewhere like Naknek. I constructed this thesis to read like the tide. Bristol Bay salmon go out into the ocean and follow various patterns before returning to spawn. This thesis will be an exploration of these patterns, their interconnectivity, and what they mean. I plan to continue alternating stories of fishing with stories of my life outside of fishing in which the "ebb" represents the time away from Bristol Bay. The "flood" is when I return. In my adult life, I have found myself living in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Wisconsin, Kansas, Peru, Guatemala, the Upper Peninsula again, Montana, Oregon, and the Upper Peninsula a third time. Although I have had different jobs and pursuits in various locations, like the salmon I return to Bristol Bay every summer. My thesis is what leads up to this part of the narrative I want to tell."--Abstract.
