The Flawed Origins of Nanotechnology

You all know all there is to know about nanotechnology. You have seen it in action, as a green mist that dissolved Paris, as tiny cubes that form freaky spider things that do battle with humans and big-headed aliens alike, as a devouring force sent to cleanse us by Keanu Reeves.

You have read about it, too. Michael Crichton’s Prey shows nanotechnology doing what the dinosaurs did in Jurassic Park – running amok, killing people and showing far greater intelligence than might be accurate.

I have served this both as a main course and as an appetizer. Either way, people LOVE it. It is really great to make your own rub for this. It’s really easy and will make a big difference in the dish. Everybody will be WOW’ed. Making your own rub gives you the personality of the dish, instead of using a prepackaged rub that usually contains more salt than real flavour.

Book Review--Wolfsbane and Mistletoe

TITLE: Wolfsbane and Mistletoe
AUTHOR: Charlaine Harris, Patricia Briggs, Keri Arthur, Carrie Vaughn, and others
GENRE: Werewolf anthology
COST: $24.95

A collection of fifteen Christmas stories, all with a werewolf theme…

From the people that brought out Many Bloody Returns comes a combination rarely seen in holiday fiction – werewolves and Christmas. Fifteen different authors provide stories ranging greatly in length and style in this anthology, but don’t expect much in the way of “hair-raising” as the tagline on the cover suggests. Most of these have some sort of a feel-good factor while introducing the reader to a wide variety of authors. It is, after all, a Christmas anthology.

New Moon, psychological horror

New Moon, the sequel to Twilight, is an entertaining, if bizarre, movie.

Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) is turning eighteen and is deeply disturbed by the fact that her vampire boyfriend Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) will remain seventeen for eternity. While most people can push fears about their mortality off into the distant future, she has a constant reminder of her own aging. After Bella gets a paper cut and sends one of the Cullen clan into a frenzy, Edward fears the danger she's in and finds the first excuse he can to skip town and avoid contact with her. While he's gone, Bella starts to grow closer to her friend Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner). A vengeful vampire is also lurking about, apparently wanting to kill Bella while her protectors the Cullens are gone.

World's Biggest Romance Publisher Turns into World's Biggest Scam Artist

Harlequin Enterprises is the biggest publisher in Romance and one of the biggest publishers in the world. They are the gold standard when it comes to romance, and romance is the biggest selling genre right now. Over 500 romance novels are published every month, and while the rest of the publishing world is hitting hard economic times, romance publishers continue to turn a profit every quarter. Harlequin included. But Harlequin is a corporation, and the one thing that corporations are always looking after is the bottom line. So who can really blame Harlequin for expanding into new forums and new publishing models? They recently opened an epublisher that will take advantage of the current trend of digital publishing. They also announced a brand new program called Harelquin Horizons.
