Most critics would say that this earliest Genesis collection does not sound at all like their albums that would follow. The songs seem as if they were written by creative teen-aged school boys, not arty professionals. It has been written that the band's early intentions was to sell songs, not sell themselves–that is reflected in the contempory pop style of this early 1970's collection. The mostly three minute songs are very good. The music quality is very good and typical for this time period…

Downtown America: A History of the Place and the People Who Made It (Historical Studies of Urban America) by Alison Isenberg
English | July 15, 2004 | ISBN: 0226385078 | 461 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

Downtown America was once the vibrant urban center romanticized in the Petula Clark song–a place where the lights were brighter, where people went to spend their money and forget their worries. But in the second half of the twentieth century, "downtown" became a shadow of its former self, succumbing to economic competition and commercial decline.

After being released from prison and winning South Africa's first free election, Nelson Mandela presided over a country still deeply divided by fifty years of apartheid. His plan was ambitious if not far-fetched: use the national rugby team, the Springboks, long an embodiment of white-supremacist rule, to embody and engage a new South Africa as they prepared to host the 1995 World Cup. The string of wins that followed not only defied the odds, but capped Mandela's miraculous effort to bring South Africans together again in a hard-won, enduring bond.

Genre: Documentary

The western movie, the cowboy novel, the rodeo and the wild west show are all means by which the West has become mythologised, distorted, caricatured and made larger than life. The West no longer lives in reality, only in the world of the imagination, but the key figure in the historical process whereby the factual, historical West was transformed into the 'Western myth' was William Frederick 'Buffalo Bill' Cody. It was within his persona that the raw material of experience was transformed into showbusiness.

Based on brand new research, this National Geographic documentary sheds light on catastrophic and gradual geological events that shaped the American Wests most iconic landscapes, and reveals new theories about the forgotten knowledge of its first inhabitants and how the future of the West might be predicted by the landscape of Mars. How the West Was Made investigates catastrophic events: a mega-flood that gouged out the Washington Scablands with a thundering 500 cubic miles of water 2000 feet deep, scouring out the features we see today; the biggest known volcanic eruption this planet has ever witnessed spewing out a vast 1200 cubic miles of volcanic ash around the San Juan range of the Rocky Mountains and ejecting ash into the atmosphere that circled the world several times
The Dream Machine: J.C.R. Licklider and the Revolution That Made Computing Personal

Licklider was a brilliant scientist whose essential contributions to cognitive psychology and cybernetics included critical early developments in the field of man-machine interaction. However, his original work is often overshadowed by his accomplishments as a teacher, administrator and project leader and this ably written and well-researched biography isn't likely to propel him into the limelight. Waldrop (Man-Made Minds) devotes about 20% of the book to Licklider himself; the rest covers his teachers, colleagues and students at MIT and the Pentagon including computing pioneers Douglas Engelbart, Wes Clark and Larry Roberts and Licklider's indirect influence on the development of personal computers and the Internet (via "the world's first large-scale experiment in personal computing" at MIT).
