Explanation of the Book:

In 2009, Rolling Stone named Joe Romm to its list of "100 People Who Are Changing America." Romm is a climate expert, physicist, energy consultant, and former official in the Department of Energy. But it’s his influential blog, one of the "Top Fifteen Green Websites" according to Time magazine, that’s caught national attention. Climate change is far more urgent than people understand, Romm says, and traditional media, scientists, and politicians are missing the story. Straight Up draws on Romm’s most important posts to explain the dangers of and solutions to climate change that you won’t find in newspapers, in journals, or on T.V. Compared to coverage of Jay-Z or the latest philandering politician, climate change makes up a pathetically small share of news reports. And when journalists do try to tackle this complex issue, they often lack the background to tell the full story. Despite the dearth of reporting, polls show that two in five Americans think the press is actually exaggerating the threat of climate change. That gives Big Oil, and others with a vested interest in the status quo, a huge opportunity to mislead the public. Romm cuts through the misinformation and presents the truth about humanity’s most dire threat. His analysis is based on sophisticated knowledge of renewable technologies, climate impacts, and government policy, written in a style everyone can understand. Romm shows how a 20 percent reduction in global emissions over the next quarter century could improve the economy; how we can replace most coal and with what technologies; why Sarah Palin wears a polar bear pin; and why controversial, emerging technologies like biochar have to be part of the solution. The ultimate solution, Romm argues, is bigger than any individual technology: it’s citizen action. Without public pressure, Washington and industry don’t budge. With it, our grandkids might just have a habitable place to live. “The Web’s most influential climate-change blogger” and “Hero of the Environment 2009” —Time Magazine “I trust Joe Romm on climate.” —Paul Krugman, New York Times “America’s fiercest climate-change activist-blogger” and one of “The 100 People Who Are Changing America” — Rolling Stone “One of the most influential energy and environmental policy makers in the Obama era” — U.S. News & World Report “The indispensable blog” —Thomas Friedman, New York Times “One of the most influential energy and environmental policy makers in the Obama era” — U.S. News & World Report “The indispensable blog” —Thomas Friedman, New York Times

Explanation of the Book:

Book four in The Speakeasy series Love, served straight up. Malcolm Elliott has been keeping secrets. Helping his mom through a financial crisis has nearly emptied his bank account and his kitchen cupboards, despite his thriving career with Corporate Equality Campaign. Malcolm is also bothered by his inability to tell the most important people in his life that he identifies as gray ace. Stuart Morgan has a secret of his own. Though years have passed since the tattooed chef fled the Mormon church in Utah for New York, he's never truly come to terms with the fetish that ruined that rigid but outwardly perfect life. Experience has also taught Stuart that keeping his love of lacy things under wraps is safer than telling the truth. After Malcom's boss, Carter, hires Stuart's restaurant to cater a gala fundraising event, the strait-laced Malcolm is thrown together with badass biker Stuart. Despite their differences and a couple of false starts, the men discover they work well together and a friendship quickly forms.

Explanation of the Book:

Verity Drummond is a florist by trade and a fantasist by nature. When her husband, Kim, leaves her, she deals with the pain by writing Straight Up, a novel in which a man on a mountaineering expedition (bearing a striking resemblance to her former husband) dies all alone in a hole in the ice, starving, wretched and with his broken bones poking through his skin. Verity goes to LA to meet Jasmine and Patrice who want to adapt Straight Up for the screen and somehow, between the dead man up the mountain and Verity's inability to admit that she's just another divorcee like the rest of California, she becomes The Widow and the buzz around the script, now based on a true story (natch), begins to grow. Enter Phil, an old friend of Kim's, who Verity meets by chance in California. Phil inadvertently sets off the biggest rolling snowball of lies in Verity's life. It starts ordinarily enough: Verity must stop Phil from letting slip that her dearly departed husband is very much alive and kicking. She tells Phil not to mention Kim because the others are reeling from their divorces. And she tells the others not to mention Kim to Phil because Phil was supposedly with Kim when he died. So far, so harmless, but soon Phil, Patrice and Jasmine are bound together in an ever-tighter tangle, with Verity holding on for dear life to the ends of all the threads. STRAIGHT UP is a book about honesty and all the other options: stories, spin, delusions, blinkers, evasions and lies. It's a hilarious, fast-paced and brilliantly executed comedy that moves from LA to NYC to Bodmin - and while the voice is as sharp as it is dark, there's a top-note of poignancy - and a hundred laughs along the way.

Dating meant nightclubs, heels, and black. It meant, 'No, thank you. Really, I'm full.' It meant matching bras and underwear. Clothes with the micro used to describe them. Because until you date again, people will hiccup lines about getting back on horses. So you invest in an Agent Provocateur whip and a subscription to an online dating service. . . ." --from Straight Up and Dirty She had every girl's dream: the perfect marriage to the perfect guy in the perfect apartment on the Upper East Side.

Straight Up and Dirty demonstrates that the true measure of success isn't what's crossed off life's to-do list. It's having the grace and fortitude to move through change, curls intact and smiling

Explanation of the Book:

Abstract Rachel A. Frias an adult fiction writer, offers an eclectic entertaining collection of 24 short stories in Short Bedtime Stories volume 1, titled Straight Up. Volume 2 of this Short Bedtime Stories collection is called Spice Up and offers and assorted amusing selection through 21 short stories. Controversial topics are presented inviting the readers possible curtailed stimulation to be uplifted, and provoke thoughts otherwise committed to the discretion of others. I have summarized the topics in each book below and addressed questions 1-5 from the press release questionnaire. Straight Up In Straight Up the variety of themes and issues, including character decisions are listed here: A mechanics cold world, the run down state of some school buildings, how financial investments rise, the fiction of replaying living organisms, uneasiness and terror due to skepticism, the value of frivolous antiques and candy, identity theft, fitting new furniture in old buildings, in addition some other themes in Straight Up by Rachel Frias are the dangers of trespassing, neighborhood quality, military giving away their lives, reaching for more than one can achieve, unexpected accidents and also family intrusion. Straight Up uses themes that can be summarized into: Feelings, socioeconomic status, science fiction, value of antiques and candy, id theft, obesity, casual love at first sight, military betrayal, passionate accidents, family and queers. Providing proof: By including a bit of reality and dressing these naked themes with fictional garments, the author of Straight Up, Rachel A. Frias, brings fiction to life in narrative conversation. Each of the 24 stories in Straight Up is original and contains at least one element of surprise as one reads the daring writers composition take for instance Wisk Away where and overweight and lesbian Josephina pulls out a cell phone and surrenders John as a drunken driver because of her vengeful personality. Being original: To illustrate the originality of these 24 short stories in Straight Up by Rachel A. Frias check that such a modern topic as stem cells is approached by Helena and she- as a character, takes advantage of this procedure to have a vertebral disk regenerated. Counter Objections: Straight Up is a work of fiction not meant for children because some topics are censored to minors. These short stories address situations that can occur in a community, and are a mild recall in awareness that what could happen, can be prevented and avoided: As what could happen in The Generals Apple which is another short story where generals betray each other.
