Emilio Sandoz is a remarkable man, a living saint and Jesuit priest who undergoes an experience so harrowing and profound that it makes him question the existence of God. This experience―the first contact between human beings and intelligent extraterrestrial life―begins with a small mistake and ends in a horrible catastrophe.
Sandoz is a part of the crew sent to explore a new planet. What they find is a civilization so alien and incomprehensible that they feel compelled to wonder what it means to be human.
The priest is the only surviving member of the crew and upon his return he is confronted by public inquisition and accusations of the most heinous crimes imaginable. His faith utterly destroyed, crippled and defenseless, his only hope is to tell his tale. Father John Candotti has been charged with discovering the truth, but the truth may be more than Earth is willing to accept.
This companion volume to the previous, widely acclaimed Guide to the Identification and Natural History of the Sparrows of the United States and Canada takes sparrow identification one step further. The authors have gathered a stunning selection of over 350 photographs as a basis for the identification of all 64 taxa of emberizine sparrows found in the region. Never before has such a comprehensive collection of sparrow photos been presented together in a single guide.
The supporting text gives detailed information on the identification of species, sexes, ages, races, and forms of all the sparrows, towhees, juncos, buntings and longspurs, grassquits and seedeaters, as well as information on their distribution, habits, habitats, molt, and voice. Particular attention is paid to the geographic variation found in many species and to comparisons with similar and confusing species. The conservation status of those that are threatened is also given due attention.
The photographs include contributions from many of America's finest bird photographers, and many were taken especially for this book. All fine portraits in themselves, they have been chosen specifically to illustrate the identification pointers described in the text. Each is captioned with full details of the photographer and the place and time at which the photo was taken. Also included are line drawings of identification details such as wing and tail feathers and beaks, as well as distribution maps.
It’s a heavy premise that sets up “iZombie’s” seventh episode, when a pregnant teenager crawls out of the woods, collapses and dies just after whispering, “Help us. ”. Even weightier. Many other girls like her have been plucked off the streets, held hostage and possibly killed by a heavily armed wingnut couple looking for sister wives. Not that the CW’s dram-rom-zom-com forgets to bring the funny, even as it’s dealing with major crimes and the brain-consuming research that goes into their investigation. For instance, our undead hero, Liv Moore (Rose McIver), eats the young victim’s brain and finds her maternal side – the mother lobe, if you will – and starts fussing over, lecturing and nagging everyone around her. Best parts: Liv smoothing down Dr. Ravi’s cowlick and spot-cleaning Det. And her young zombie suitor, Lowell Tracey (Bradley James), so hot for her just a short time ago, can’t stomach a kiss because he inadvertently ate a gay man's brain. Good news: he’s searching high and low for some red-blooded hetero gray matter, so this will all get straightened out soon. Someone finally states the obvious -- “Hey, look at you two, ebony and ivory” – about the ghastly pale goth-girl Liv next to African American Clive Babineaux. And some jerk wonders why “Beetlejuice” (Liv) has appeared if he didn’t say her name three times. The case of the week takes up the bulk of “Maternity Liv,” giving us a sad peek into Liv’s potentially childless future, but the side stories matter, too. Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli) may have cannibalistic lab rats on his hands after feeding them the designer drug Utopian mixed with the energy drink Max Rager. Will this lead to a zombie cure. It may be a real slog getting there and, apparently, cuddly rats will die. And a certain Seattle cop, Babineaux’s boss, shows more of his shady side when he guns down the kidnapping suspects instead of taking at least one of them into custody. On to the particulars, which prove that Blaine DeBeers (David Anders) looms large even when he doesn't appear in an episode. But come on, showrunners, more Blaine DeBeers please. A child of the upper middle class, tomboy Emily Sparrow has always been a good girl until she gets to high school and meets Dylan. That bad boy leads her astray, into truancy, partying, drugs and unprotected sex. But they’re not responsible for kidnapping her and holding her hostage for months until. Source: www.latimes.com
Episode 3 of Game of Thrones' fifth season had its share of memorable moments. We had Arya dropping the C-word with a flare that would make the Hound proud, flayed people, Sansa's return to Winterfell, Jon beheading Janos, and Tyrion getting abducted
