Strange Case Of The Mad Professor

by Peter Kobel, Strange Case Of The Mad Professor Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download Strange Case Of The Mad Professor books, It was one of the biggest scandals in New York University history. Professor John Buettner-Janusch, chair of the Anthropology Department, was convicted of manufacturing LSD and Quaaludes in his campus laboratory. He claimed the drugs were for an animal behavior experiment, but the jury found otherwise. B-J, as he was known, served two years in prison before being paroled, emerging to find his life and career in shambles. Four years later, he sought revenge by trying to kill the sentencing judge and others with poisoned Valentine’s Day chocolates. After pleading guilty to attempted murder, he was sentenced to twenty years in prison, where he died in mysterious circumstances. But before he was infamous at NYU, B-J, a scientific luminary, had also taught at Yale and Duke. One of the world’s foremost authorities on lemurs, our distant primate relatives on the remote island of Madagascar, he brought international attention to these endearing and endangered creatures. He cofounded the Duke Lemur Center in North Carolina and inspired a whole generation of scientists to study them and conservationists to save them and their habitat. His trials captured national headlines, but the mad scientist’s full story has never been told—until now.

Mad Professor

by Mark Frauenfelder, Mad Professor Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download Mad Professor books, Within these tantalizing pages lie the keys to the mysteries of science. For here, in strange and delectable detail, are dozens of hitherto secret experiments for concocting slimes and putties, inventing miniature robots and transport devices, growing crystal gardens, and many other useful creations-all crafted from widely available household products. Where did these wondrous projects originate? Apparently in a shadowy toy research laboratory that once operated out of a tiny island in the South Pacific. The Zoober Laboratory has since vanished, but we recovered its crown jewel-a secret notebook: a source of astounding information, fabulously illustrated. Lets just be thankful the pages are wipe-clean.

The Mummy Of Ret Seh

by A. Hyatt Verrill, The Mummy Of Ret Seh Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download The Mummy Of Ret Seh books, What weird science lay in the mummy case of Ret-Seh? What uncanny power created this lovely, terrifying vision?excerptThe mummy case was the finest thing of its sort that Hargraves ever had seen; a magnificent thing marvelous with paint and gold. It was a slender elaborate affair showing the figure of a woman, a woman who must have been a ravishing beauty in life if the carved and painted face was even a passable likeness of the original whose body was-supposedly-within the case.Moreover, it was a strikingly lifelike face; a face of perfect oval, with a delicate cleft chin, with beautifully rounded cheeks, with broad low forehead crowned with masses of black hair, with a thin straight nose that would have been imperious had it not been for the uptilted tip; with arching brows over lustrous eyes that seemed-even in painted form-to gaze up at Hargraves with a questing, ardent expression; and with carmine lips parted in an alluring, most provocative smile."Actually looks as if she wanted to be kissed," mused Hargraves as he stood off and admired the carved and painted figure. "Must have been a pretty thing if she looked like that. Regular heart-breaker, back in days of the Pharaohs, I expect. And what a figure! Might represent Pharaoh's daughter at the time she found little Moses."

The Strange Case Of Dr Mabuse

by David Kalat, The Strange Case Of Dr Mabuse Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download The Strange Case Of Dr Mabuse books, The Mabuse phenomenon is recognized as an icon of horror in Germany as Frankenstein and Dracula are in the United States. This work is a study of the 12 motion pictures and five books (and some secondary films) that make up the eight decades of adventures of master criminal Mabuse, created by author Norbert Jacques in the best-selling 1922 German novel and brought to the screen by master filmmaker Fritz Lang in the same year. Both on screen and off, the story of Dr. Mabuse is a story of love triangles and revenge, of murder, suicides, and suspicious deaths, of betrayals and paranoia, of fascism and tyranny, deceptions and conspiracies, mistaken identities, and transformation. This work, featuring much information never before published in English, provides an understanding of a modern mythology whose influence has pervaded popular culture even while the name Mabuse remains relatively unknown in the United States.

C S Lewis The Work Of Christ Revealed

by P. H. Brazier, C S Lewis The Work Of Christ Revealed Books available in PDF, EPUB, Kindle, Docs and Mobi Format. Download C S Lewis The Work Of Christ Revealed books, C. S. Lewis--The Work of Christ Revealed focuses on three doctrines or aspects of Lewis's theology and philosophy: his doctrine of Scripture, his famous mad, bad, or God argument, and his doctrine of christological prefigurement. In each area we see Lewis innovating within the tradition. He accorded a high revelatory status to Scripture, but acknowledged its inconsistencies and shrank away from a theology of inerrancy. He took a two-thousand-year-old theological tradition of aut Deus aut malus homo (either God or a bad man) and developed it in his own way. Most innovative of all was his doctrine of christological prefigurement--intimations of the Christ-event in pagan mythology and ritual. This book forms the second in a series of three studies on the theology of C. S Lewis titled C. S. Lewis, Revelation, and the Christ (www.cslewisandthechrist.net). The books are written for academics and students, but also, crucially, for those people, ordinary Christians, without a theology degree who enjoy and gain sustenance from reading Lewis's work.
