That's My Girl  

Overview

Dad, you shape your daughter's future.

You impact every aspect of your daughter's life. You show her how women should be treated, how men should act, and how a man shows healthy love and affection toward a woman. And, perhaps most importantly, you set the standard for how your daughter feels she deserves to be treated by men.

This is a big responsibility, and it's not always easy to carry out.

But parenting expert Rick Johnson is here to help. In That's My Girl, Rick shows you how to develop the close relationship with your daughter that you both crave. His plainspoken common sense, humor, and advice will give you the confidence and the encouragement you need to take up the active, positive role that can change your daughter's life--starting now.

Before the Scarlet Dawn  

Overview

In 1775, Hayward Morgan, a young gentleman destined to inherit his father's estate in Derbyshire, England, captures the heart of the local vicar's daughter, Eliza Bloome. Her dark beauty and spirited ways are not enough to win him, due to her station in life.

Circumstances throw Eliza in Hayward's path, and they flee to America to escape the family conflicts. But as war looms, it's a temporary reprieve. Hayward joins the revolutionary forces and what follows is a struggle for survival, a test of faith, and the quest to find lasting love in an unforgiving wilderness.

Seeing Things  

by Patti Hill

 

  • ISBN-13: 9781433668586
  • Publisher: B&H Publishing Group
  • Publication date: 9/1/2009

Birdie Wainwright, 72, isn't concerned about seeing things that others can't. For a woman who still climbs mountains with her dog (Miss Bee Haven) and likes to tango, the impractical visions brought on by macular degeneration are just another gift from God, adding more adventure to life. But when a tumble down the stairs breaks her ankle and leads back to her son's home in Denver where she must convalesce, Birdie's imagination really takes flight. Following a conversation with her grandson about The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, she begins to see and speak with the unkempt literary character himself on a regular basis. As the line between reality and whimsy turns brittle, faith is tested among friends and loved ones, and hope is reborn.

Seeing Things is a story about family, reconciliation, and hearing from God in unexpected ways.

Agnes’s life is mundane; her work at the animal shelter routine—until she is arrested for a string of unimaginably heinous murders.

Just when Powers is breaking through Ella's dementia to put together the puzzle behind the carnage, Ella is murdered.

The Frenzy Way 

 by Gregory Lamberson

 

Publisher: Medallion Press, Incorporated

Pages: 340

Series:The Frenzy Cycle Series #1

ISBN-13: 9781605421933

 

Overview

When raped and dismembered corpses start to appear throughout New York City, the investigation draws police captain Mace into a plot that plays like a horror movie. Taking the lead role in this chilling story may be the challenge of his career, testing his skills and his stamina, but even a superhero would find the series of terrifying crimes daunting. Unlike anything Mace has experienced, every blood-spattered scene is filled with body parts and partially eaten human remains and in the wake of each attack is the haunting premonition of another murdering onslaught. As Mace follows this crimson trail of madness, he must accept the inevitable conclusion: whomever or whatever is responsible for this terror does not intend to stop, and it’s up to him to put an end to the chaotic reign of a perpetrator whom, until now, he’s met only in the annals of mythology. Unfortunately, the mere mention of the word—werewolf—would send New Yorkers into a panic.

Protecting Your Mobile App IP  

by Richard Stim

(O'Reilly)

Computers & Technology

 

Learn four cost-effective ways to protect the applications you develop for mobile devices. The methods described in this Mini Missing Manual won't stop people from misappropriating your secrets, stealing your name, and copying your code. But if any of those things do happen, you'll have the legal ammunition you need to recover your losses and, in some cases, get money to pay attorney fees. Taking these steps will also reinforce your legal rights in the event that another company wants to acquire your apps.


The four methods include:

  • Trade secret protection. Want to show your app to others -- investors, beta testers, or contractors -- before it's available to the public? Learn what trade secrets are and how you can protect them.
  • Copyright protection. Protect your whole app as well as its individual parts, such as the underlying code, appearance, and the collection of data within it.
  • Trademark protection. Protect your app's name, slogan, or logo. And learn how to file an application for trademark registration.
  • Permissions. Learn how and when to get permission to reuse material from other sources, like photos, data, video, or audio clips.
