The weather has always been a favorite topic of conversation. Undoubtedly, someone must have said to Noah, "I thought they said it was supposed to let up on Tuesday." Over a century ago, American essayist Charles Dudley Warner wrote in the HartfordCourant, "Everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it." And now with the advent of the 24-hour Weather Channel and high-tech radar and satellite imagery, we have more information about the weather at our disposal than ever before. But what about weather in the past? Is the climate changing? Are the summers hotter now than ever before? Were winters colder when our grandparents were children? In The Pennsylvania Weather Book, meteorologist Ben Gelber provides the first comprehensive survey of 250 years of recorded weather in this state. He reports on noteworthy weather happenings by category (snowstorms, rainstorms, cold and heat waves, thunderstorms, and tropical storms) and places them in historical context. Throughout the book, Gelber clearly defines meteorological terms and explains what creates weather events. The book features appendices and tables containing useful references for average temperatures, precipitation, snowfall, and climate data. It also provides a brief history of the weather watchers who contributed to the state's meteorological records since the late eighteenth century. This volume will serve as a valuable resource for weather professionals, amateurs, and local enthusiasts alike.

To the world, he was a startlingly successful international tycoon, head of a vast financial empire. To his beautiful secretary-mistress, he was a god-like hero to be served with her mind, soul and body. To his aristocratic young wife, he was an elemental force of nature to be tamed. To his millionaire father-in-law, he was a giant whose single error could be used to destroy him. What kind of man was Bjorn Faulkner? Only you, the reader, can decide. On one level, Night of January 16th is a totally gripping drama about the rise and destruction of a brilliant and ruthless man. On a deeper level, it is a superb dramatic objectification of Ayn Rand's vision of human strength and weakness. Since its original Broadway success, it has achieved vast worldwide popularity and acclaim.

ANTI-HOROSCOPE: HUMAN “SOFTWARE” (Series of 12 books) Did you know that, for example, all people born on January 4th of common years are ardent apologists of everything standard and common; border-guards, who protect boundaries of everything that is established? Or that they can torture others with “kindness” and wise advice? Or that those born on January 28th of common years imperceptibly "reform" you so much that you will not recognize yourself? For example, did you know that all those people, who were born on January 8th of common years are seemingly sincere with "open souls," meanwhile they have the ability to completely transform? That is, you never know whether a person before you is who he or she is trying to appear as. And so on... Hence the question: are you sure that you know people, whom you think you know as your own self? Yes, of course, you know them, if we take word-play into account. You really do know them, like you know yourself—that is: just as bad! You know your own and other people's masks and roles, but that is all. You do not believe this? Then, open this book and see for yourself! This book is for those people, who are fed up with "horoscopism," who are tired of listening to nonsense about themselves and other people from psychologists or their "all-knowing" relatives, friends and acquaintances. It will help you save not just some time in your life, but your whole life because otherwise you will spend your entire life on something that is a priori impossible. And, it is impossible not because you are idiots, but because Homo sapiens cannot fully know themselves and other people without an external (and, most importantly, objective) source. Perhaps that is the reason why humanity was left "factory instructions" to each one of us—the Catalog of Human Population. Yes, that is right! There exists the Catalog of Human Population, which you can open and find out everything about any person you are interested in (including yourself)! Information about people presented in this book (and in other eleven books in the series titled Anti-Horoscope: Human "Software") is from there, and not from your favorite horoscope.
