It's 1969, and, having just celebrated his forty-fifth birthday, James Bond-British special agent 007-is summoned to headquarters to receive an unusual assignment. Zanzarim, a troubled West African nation, is being ravaged by a bitter civil war, and M directs Bond to quash the rebels threatening the established regime. Bond's arrival in Africa marks the start of a feverish mission to discover the forces behind this brutal war-and he soon realizes the situation is far from straightforward. Piece by piece, Bond uncovers the real cause of the violence in Zanzarim, revealing a twisting conspiracy that extends further than he ever imagined.
Moving from rebel battlefields in West Africa to the closed doors of intelligence offices in London and Washington, this novel is at once a gripping thriller, a tensely plotted story full of memorable characters and breathtaking twists, and a masterful study of power and how it is wielded-a brilliant addition to the James Bond canon.

Frans Lanting's vibrant tribute to Old Africa revisited on its 20th anniversary. For a year, between 1988 and 1989, Frans Lanting roamed the wetlands and deserts of northern Botswana, living by the rhythms of the water and the movements of the animals as he captured them on film. The "National Geographic" had sent him there on assignment, but what he would take away was much more than a magazine story; it was a seminal and unparalleled collection of photographs depicting a world of flora and fauna that many had assumed no longer existed on this earth. Living out of vehicles and canvas tents, gliding through swamps, following lions by night - Lanting, armed with his Nikon FE2, got up close and personal with some of the planet's most formidable creatures. The book he published a few years later, Okavango, was a testament not only to the wondrous wildlife of the region, but also to Lanting's extraordinary courage, skill, and photographic eye. After many publications of Lanting's work, including "Jungles", "Eye to Eye", and "Penguin", "Taschen" now revisits his original classic with this updated and expanded edition of "Okavango: Africa's Last Eden", further enhanced with all new reproductions and dozens of previously unpublished photos, as well a new preface by Lanting.

LOVE LIKE THEIRS (The Romance Chronicles—Book #4) is book #4 in a new, sweet romance series by #1 bestselling author Sophie Love. The series begins with LOVE LIKE THIS (Book #1), a free download!
Keira Swanson, 28, has sworn off of love. With her heart still hurting from her breakups with Cristiano and Shane, she will not allow her magazine to use her for another love experiment.
Which is fine by them, because they want to send her off on a different kind of trip: to prove that someone suffering from a breakup can avoid a knee-jerk rebound affair and manage NOT to fall in love. To emphasize the point, they will NOT assign her a new tour guide. Instead, Keira will take a cruise to the Scandinavian countries and have to navigate herself.
Keira is thrilled to accept the assignment. There is nothing she wants more than to be alone, and go to the Northern climes, where she can cool her head, and where surely she will not find love.
But Keira does not anticipate the beauty of Copenhagen and of Stockholm (“the Paris of the North”) or the stunning hospitality of the Scandinavians.
With Christmas on the way, resisting a new love may be harder than she thinks…
A wholesome romantic comedy that is as profound as it is funny, LOVE LIKE THEIRS is book #4 in a dazzling new romance series that will make you laugh, cry, and will keep you turning pages late into the night—and will make you fall in love with romance all over again.
Book #5 will be published soon!
“Sophie Love's ability to impart magic to her readers is exquisitely wrought in powerfully evocative phrases and descriptions….[This is] the perfect romance or beach read, with a difference: its enthusiasm and beautiful descriptions offer an unexpected attention to the complexity of not just evolving love, but evolving psyches. It's a delightful recommendation for romance readers looking for a touch more complexity from their romance reads.”

Praise for Nonprofit Strategic Planning Leveraging Sarbanes-Oxley Best Practices «A robust nonprofit sector is a vital part of a civil society. Keeping the sector strong through effective strategic planning and implementation is a critical assignment. As a thought leader in the nonprofit sector, Dr. Jackson's book on the relationship of Sarbanes-Oxley best practices with strategic planning is an invaluable resource for nonprofit governing boards and employees. Her step-by-step, practical approach is easy to read and, more important, provides a specific road map to effective planning.» -Larry Brewster, Dean, College of Professional Studies University of San Francisco «Dr. Jackson's practical and straightforward approach to creating a strategic plan is quite refreshing. I believe that more and more nonprofits understand that they need to be run just as any business needs to be run-with focus, clarity, and purpose. The ideas and methodology stress the importance of sound risk management and the rewards of having such a plan in place. I can assure you that the executive director of every nonprofit I represent will receive a copy of this book.» -Joseph L. DeLucchi, Vice President CAL Insurance & Associates, Inc.

Hobby Eagle A3 Super 2.0 II 3-Axis Gyro Flight Controller Stabilizer The Eagle A3 Super II offers 6 flight modes, including Normal Stabilization Mode, 3D Attitude Locking Mode, Auto/Self-balance Mode, Auto-Hover Mode, User Defined Mode, and Gyro Deactivated Mode. By using a 3-way switch on your transmitter you can switch between any 3 different modes during flight. The A3 Super II also provides two stick control modes: Manual Mode and Auto Mode. Decription: SpecificationsBrand: Hobbyeagle Item:A3 Super 2.0 II Flight Control Stabilizer Main Controller: 32-bit MCU Sensor: 3-axis gyroscope and 3-axis accelerometer Gyroscope Scale Range: 2000 dps Accelerometer Scale Range: 4g Input Signal: Standard PPM with center point 1520uS, or S.Bus serial data Output Signal: PWM max frequency 333Hz, 1520500uS Input Voltage: 4.8V - 7.4V Operating Temp: -10 to 50 Size: 432714mm Weight: 10g (excluding wires) Features Works with all major receiver brands including Spektrum, Futaba, Hitec, JR, Tactic, and more. Integrated design of 6-axis (3 gyro+3 accelerometers ) 32-bit MEMS sensor for self-stability and self-balance. Advanced brown-out fast recovery ability provides better security and reliability. 6 flight modes: Normal Stabilization, 3D Attitude Locking, Auto-balance, Auto-Hover, User Defined, and Gyro Deactivated Modes. 2 stick control modes: Manual Mode(MM) and Auto Mode(RR/AR). Various wing types: 1AIL+1ELE, 2AIL+1ELE, 1AIL+2ELE, 2AIL+2ELE, delta-wing and V-tail. Independent gyro gain adjustment and gyro ratio selection for each flight mode. Separate adjustments for servo travel limits. Up to 333Hz servo operating frequency, compatible with all analog and digital servos. 5-level response rate setting allows you to use it on gas-powered planes. Compatible with HV (7.4V) receivers and servos. Flat or upright mounting orientations. Newly designed config GUI makes gyro setup simple and intuitive. Wiring Example (Aux Mode -3) The new A3 Super II has 7 separate input channels and 5 output channels. This gyro is compatible with standard receivers and single-line/bus type receivers such as Futaba's S.Bus/S.Bus 2. Connect all the required channels between the controller and the receiver using the included 3-way male to male receiver cables. The flight stabilizer requires at least 3 receiver channels, up to 7 channels. The channels of AIL, ELE and RUD must be connected at all times otherwise the controller will not work. The A3 Super II has an integrated high precision 6-axis (3 gyro + 3 accelerometers) MEMS sensor with advanced attitude and PID control algorithm. The gyro can accurately detect the angular velocity and attitude of the aircraft and issue commands to all servos, which enables perfect balance and stability throughout the flight. The A3 Super II has built-in capabilities for delta-wing (flying-wing) v-tail, remote master gain adjustment, and separate dual aileron and elevator control. Finally, two of the most exciting new features on this gyro are the One-Click Rescue which allows you to return your plane to level flight at the flip of a switch (similar to Horizon's SAFE technology) and the One-Click Hover which allows you to put your plane into a perfect hover at the flip of a switch.
