The dunce of obedience class with poor eyesight and a clumsy gait, Boo was the least likely of heroes. Yet with his unflappable spirit and boundless love, Boo has changed countless lives through his work as a therapy dog: helping a mute six-year-old boy to speak, coaxing movement from a paralyzed girl and stirring life in a ninety-four-year-old nun with Alzheimer's.

Great cities and neighborhoods rise and fall, yet Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia has seized the imagination and envy of social climbers, urban planners, and novelists alike for two centuries. In "The Perfect Square", Nancy Heinzen - a resident of Rittenhouse Square for over 40 years and an activist committed to its preservation - provides the first full-length social history of this public urban space. One of the five squares William Penn established when he founded the city, the southwest-situated Rittenhouse Square has transformed from a marshy plot surrounded by brickyards and workers' shanties into the epicenter of Philadelphia high society it is today.

The Planet Mars: A History of Observation and Discovery by William Sheehan
Publisher: University of Arizona Press | 1996 | ISBN: 0816516413 | 270 pages | PDF (scan) | 81,5 MB

Twenty years after the Viking missions of the ’70s, we are finally going back to Mars. No fewer than ten missions are planned for the period between 1996 and 2003, and it is likely that human explorers will follow soon after–perhaps by the middle of the twenty-first century. When they do, they will owe much to the Mars of romance, to the early pioneers whose discoveries and disappointments are brought to life in The Planet Mars: A History of Observation and Discovery. In this timely and vividly written account, William Sheehan traces human fascination with Mars back to the naked-eye observers of the planet. He recalls the early telescopic observers who first made out enigmatic markings and polar caps on its surface.

In the jungles of Sulawesi, Indonesia, lives the crested black macaque, a monkey that values friendship over force.

The situation looks volatile as one troop of macaques meets another, but the rival troop is turned away with nothing more than a stinging glare. Crested black macaques look after one another, and even share childcare duties, and when problems arrive they work together to succeed. This program reveals the amazing lifestyles of these expressive macaques.
