That a Jew living in Nazi Berlin survived the Holocaust at all is surprising. That he was a homosexual and a teenage leader in the resistance and yet survived is amazing. But that he endured the ongoing horror with an open heart, with love and without vitriol, and has written about it so beautifully is truly miraculous. This is Gad Beck's story.

Before the rise of the Nazi party, Germany, especially Berlin, was one of the most tolerant places for homosexuals in the world. Activists, including Thomas Mann and Albert Einstein, campaigned openly for the rights of gay men and women, and tried to repeal the old existing law against homosexuality. But all that would change when the Nazis came to power and existence for gay people turned into one of fear. Raids, arrests, prison sentences and expulsions became the daily reality. When the concentration camps were built, homosexuals were imprisoned along with Jews and any other groups the Nazis wanted to suppress. The pink triangle, sewn onto prison uniforms, became the symbol of the persecution of homosexuals, a persecution that would continue for many years after the war. A mix of historical research, first person accounts, and individual stories bring this time to life for readers. Stories of bravery in the face of inhuman cruelty, friendship found in the depths of despair in the camps, and the perseverance of the human spirit will both educate and inspire.

Many mammals like to dig in the dirt, but few call it home. Those that do, such as mole-rats, zokors, and tuco-tucos, have developed novel adaptations to their subterranean life, including bones and muscles modified for efficient digging and ways to "see" underground without using their eyes. These unusual traits, adopted independently by unrelated groups around the world, also make subterranean rodents fascinating subjects for biologists. Life Underground provides the first comprehensive review of the biology of subterranean rodents. Arranged by topic rather than by taxon to facilitate cross-species comparisons, chapters cover such subjects as morphology, physiology, social behavior, genetic variation, and evolutionary diversification. Two main questions run throughout the book. First, to what extent has subterranean life shaped the biology of these animals, leading to similar adaptations among otherwise dissimilar species? Second, how have the distinct evolutionary histories of these groups led to different solutions to the challenges posed by life underground?

A story of America is moving "forward." And, NOW that word "forward" happens to be the slogan of the very man; that, Republican Willard Mitt Romney is trying to unseat. America the Party of "NO" has a man who will insist to see your ID, Birth Certificate, but won't release his Tax Returns, at the least 5-6 of them, so the voting electorate will know how to trust him. There are many perfectly legal ways for all "weasels" to get out of paying taxes. Especially, if you can afford armies of "creative" accountants to find them all. In our own Country's Congressional Leaders there is: Nothing but, shameless lies and dishonor! That explains what's going on here. If election in November is to be decided on the several issues, "Robme" (the Romney) and (Ryan, the Lying) along with the remaining hostile Republicans should stay away from foreign policy this next four years. Even drifting into that realm risks reminding voters of Obama's clear advantage in leadership. America, "Bush has been out of office for almost 4 years, are YOU really going to continue to blame him ?" This is what the Republicans are saying! Honestly, if that's were the blame lies, absolutely! It wouldn't matter; even if, it's been 100, 200, or 300 years since George W. "the Idiot" Bush has been out of office, there will STILL remain too many unanswered questions! America: This book is a ...Timeline of George W. Bush's "UNMITIGATED DISASTER" that has become President OBAMA'S inherited MESS! Let him fix ..it for all of America! Louis D. Cruz
