Author Phil Freedman offers a humorous collection of 'wit and wisdom" from his local newspaper column, "WHATEVER." Freedman published "WHATEVER" in a local paper in Aspen, Colorado, until his editor fired him for anti-semantic (please read the preceding word carefully) reasons. He subsequently published "WHATEVER" for three years on a weekly Web site. "Izzy, Do We Have Any Trojans?" is a compendium of the best of those columns. Freedman is no James Thurber, but neither is Dave Barry. In fact, his readers have favorably compared Freedman with Barry, but his style is more thought provoking and reflects his academic background. He uses sarcasm, irony (both steam and dry), wit (and without), cynicism, mysticism, insane-icism, mixed metaphor, oxymorons, regular morons, pun, parody, parable, alliteration, and even misquotes. When the situation invites, he enjoys playing with phonynyms. "Phonynym," as you may have guessed, is a term for made-up words that don't exist. But don't look it up. "Phonynym" is a phonynym. His readers have referred to him as a 'word crafter." Others, as a 'word crap-per."

Antiviral drug development has led to significant advances in the control of globally prevalent viral infections by the hepatitis C (HCV) and the human immunodeficiency viruses. Nonetheless, there are current gaps in the armamentarium against global viral infections due to some herpes viruses, the hepatitis B virus, and the deadly filovirus Ebola and arenavirus Tacaribe responsible of outbreaks of hemorrhagic fever in emerging countries. Arbidol (ARB) is a cost-effective antiviral with broad-spectrum activity, administered for decades in Russia and China against flu. We showed that ARB inhibits HCV infection, and has potent antiviral activity against the Ebola, Tacaribe, hepatitis B and human herpes-8 viruses. Since these viruses have divergent life cycles, we posit that ARB may exhibit varied modes of action against different viruses. Careful dissection of molecular mechanisms of action of ARB against HCV and the Ebola virus revealed that ARB blocked viral entry. ARB might, therefore, constitute a pharmacological approach against globally prevalent viruses, and an affordable molecule for emerging countries in urgent need for effective antiviral therapies.

Alex, Lassiter and Brukk all looked up at the same time when they heard the roar of the two low flying Fighters that buzzed their positions. It was immediately followed by an attack Jetcopter that hovered above. Military vehicles and soldiers began to drop down from airborne supply and troop carriers on all the hillsides. The first thought that came into the two adversaries minds was that the other had brought in air and ground support and they were about to be overrun. That thought stopped when a loudspeaker from the 'copter' began its announcement. "ATTENTION COMBATANTS. YOU ARE ILLEGALLY WAGING ARMED CONFLICT. LAY DOWN YOUR WEAPONS. PLACE HANDS ON TOP OF HEAD AND COME INTO THE OPEN. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN AIR AND GROUND STRIKES ON ALL, I REPEAT, ON ALL YOUR POSITIONS. WE HAVE SEVERAL HUNDRED HELLPOINT TROOPS ON EACH OF YOUR FLANKS. IF EITHER GROUP FIRES ON THE OTHER OR ON OUR TROOPS WE WILL TAKE OUT YOUR ENTIRE POSITION. ACKNOWLEDGE BY THE LEADERS OF THE TWO GROUPS COMING INTO THE OPEN AND NO ONE WILL BE HARMED. YOU HAVE TWO MINUTES TO COMPLY OR FIRING WILL COMMENCE."

Izzy’s trying to cope with life, love, and loneliness, but her fast life in Houston is rapidly spinning out of control. ​So when the twenty-three-year-old American takes a job at an international resort in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, she hopes her old life is behind her at last—and with it, all the self-doubts and insecurities that have plagued her since childhood. She’s wondering if she’ll be able to survive in a new job in a strange country, but for now, the city’s breathtaking ocean views by day and sexy club scenes by night look like paradise. Happy and energized by the unfamiliar sights and sounds of her surroundings, Izzy sets out to prove herself in the Spanish-speaking office. Soon she’s making strides at work, partying with new acquaintances, and all the while gaining confidence as she successfully navigates the local culture (and the men in it). But soon the lines start to blur in paradise. Izzy misses her family and her boyfriend back home; she senses her new friends may be ignoring her; and when she travels for work, she feels insecure and out of place. Her self-esteem takes a hit. Confusion and disorientation set in. Returning to old habits—drinking, partying hard, and looking for love with strangers—Izzy is feeling more alone than ever. When an office gaffe threatens to ruin her much-anticipated trip home for Christmas, Izzy is forced to take stock: Was the whole move to Mexico a mistake? Can she find a way to get her career—and her life—back on track? In this poignant, funny, and edgy coming-of-age story, debut author Danielle Ledezma shows us that there’s strength in being vulnerable, it’s all right not to be perfect, and most of all, we have to learn to love ourselves before we can truly love anyone else. Danielle Ledezma was raised in San Antonio, Texas, and attended the University of Texas at Austin. She currently lives in Texas with her husband, Pedro, and their two fur babies, Cali and Cole.

In this second book of the Izzy’s Pop Star Plan series, the final voting tallies on International Pop Star Challenge are finally revealed, and a media firestorm begins to rage. Though a heavy audience favorite, Izzy Baxter loses by a mere 112 votes. Rumors have it that the sixteen-year-old was robbed of the title because of her faith. Everyone seems to be offering the teen legal advice, and many begin pressuring Izzy to demand a recount. After trying hard to hear God’s voice in all the noise, she decides to leave the loss behind and focus on her fledgling music career. Izzy is flooded with contract offers, but after agonizing over the myriad of choices, she finally decides to sign with Pop Star judge Giuseppe Rossi’s Megatone Records. The talented teen is then whisked away to London to begin recording her first album. But even songs produced by a genius British producer feel empty for Izzy without incorporating her faith. Needing to clear her head, Izzy takes a break from recording and heads to Uganda for a two-week mission trip with her youth group. While working at the Kisugu orphanage, Izzy’s heart is broken and forever changed. On top of a lonely African hill, the young songwriter begins working on a new set of songs, and a new Pop Star Plan is born.
