And what were their lives like from beginning to end?

These are just some of the questions this book aims to answer so you can come to your own conclusion about the question; who was the better inventor, Nikola Tesla, or Thomas Edison?

Obsessive, brilliant, and tortured, Nikola Tesla was lauded for his invention of the alternating current (AC), and other significant contributions to science. His claim that “harnessing the forces of nature was the only worthwhile scientific endeavor” both impressed and enraged the scientific community. Eventually, his peers could no longer dismiss his eccentricities and began to view him as a crackpot รข?? a potentially dangerous one.

Thomas Edison was born into a hard-working but attentive family. He struggled in school and became deaf at an early age. Born on February 11, 1847, Edison would become, arguably, the best-known American inventor of all time. His invention of the light bulb was one of more than 1,000 patents he held during his lifetime.

Strange Laws: A look at some Old Testament Laws

by Daniel Bryant

Some of the laws in the Old Testament seem a bit strange to us. Let’s look at a few and see what they mean for us now. First I look at what they meant then, and how they apply to us now.

Mummy’s Lump

by Gillian Forrest

Mummy’s Lump is the UK’s first-ever book to help young children whose mums have been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Author Gillian Forrest, Consultant Child Psychiatrist and Senior Research Fellow at Oxford University, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1990 when her children were five and seven, said:

“Even though I am an experienced child psychiatrist, I was very unsure how to talk to my children about my diagnosis. Nobody asked if I had any problems with explaining what was happening to my children, everything was focused on my condition.”

To help other parents facing the problem Gillian decided to write a book aimed at the under-sixes, which would explain what their mum was going through.
Mummy’s Lump follows Elly and Jack as they learn of their mother’s diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer. It has the look and feel of a classic children’s story book, with illustrations by Sarah Garson.
