It is 2025 and the planet is rapidly approaching environmental death. Dr. Gupta Singh, a Hindu guru with a Jim Jones-like following, has proposed the suicide, by lottery, of one-third of the world's population. His followers have elected a Depopulationist majority in Congress. Led by journalist John Sinclair, a small group hopes to prove that Singh is a fraud. Singh is a formidable enemy: he cancels the medical-cosmetological treatment that the 72-year-old Sinclair (who looks 46 due to the treatment) receives, causing Sinclair to age rapidly. Singh sets the feared tax police after Sinclair, alters his records, and wipes out his wealth. Tension mounts as Sinclair stalks Singh and gains access to his "conviction", an electronic document into Singh's true identity and character

Two ambitious men. One historic mission.With a blinding flash in the New Mexico desert in the summer of 1945, the world was changed forever. The bomb that ushered in the atomic age was the product of one of history's most improbable partnerships. The General and the Genius reveals how two extraordinary men pulled off the greatest scientific feat of the twentieth century.Leslie Richard Groves of the Army Corps of Engineers, who had made his name by building the Pentagon in record time and under budget, was made overlord of the impossibly vast scientific enterprise known as the Manhattan Project. His mission: to beat the Nazis to the atomic bomb. So he turned to the nation's preeminent theoretical physicist, J. Robert Oppenheimer-the chain-smoking, martini-quaffing son of wealthy Jewish immigrants, whose background was riddled with communist associations-Groves's opposite in nearly every respect. In their three-year collaboration, the iron-willed general and the visionary scientist led a brilliant team in a secret mountaintop lab and built the fearsome weapons that ended the war but introduced the human race to unimaginable new terrors. And at the heart of this most momentous work of World War II is the story of two extraordinary men-the general and the genius

Mexican American Perceptions of Isolation in Desegregated School Settings by Patrick E Mcburnette( Book )

4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study measured Mexican American secondary students' perceptions of racial/ethnic isolation in their educational environment. Utilizing the input from a committee of five adult Mexican Americans and five adult Anglo Americans, a 25-item questionnaire was constructed. Each item consisted of a statement describing a condition that may or may not exist in the students' perceived educational environment. For each statement, students were to respond to two questions: "To what degree does this condition now exist in your school?" And "To what extent should this condition occur in your school?" Items measured three areas of alientation--social, academic, and extracurricular. Ninety-nine questionnaires were completed by Chicano and Anglo students in secondary schools in Houston, Lockhart, McAllen, San Antonio, and Waxahachie (Texas). Analyses included a ranking of items by computing the discrepancy between the should and now responses. Among the findings were: of the ten top-ranking items, all but one were social or academic in nature; items dealing with positive social interactions between Mexican American, Anglo, and Black students and teachers were top ranked; verbal harassment between Mexican Americans and Anglos was identified as the number one area of isolation; and the need for schools to offer formal courses in human relations skills was identified.
