All four episodes of the Canadian mini-series based on the true story of the first Canadians to make it to the top of the world's tallest peak. Eric Johnson stars as Laurie Skreslet, whose determination to reach the summit overcomes a series of seemingly insurmountable adversities including avalanches, multiple fatalities, animosity from the world's media and desertion by his sponsors.
Mark Wahlberg and Kevin Bacon star in this drama based on the events surrounding the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. With the streets of central Boston lined with people supporting the runners as they complete the final stages of the race, brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (Themo Melikidze and Alex Wolff) set off two powerful home-made bombs next to the finishing line. In the immediate aftermath of the attack, Police Sergeant Tommy Saunders (Wahlberg) joins a number of courageous first responders as they attempt to contain the situation and tend to the wounded. Meanwhile, with the city in lockdown, FBI agent Richard DesLauriers (Bacon) and Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis (John Goodman) must put differences aside as they lead a city-wide search for the bombers before they can strike again. The cast also includes Michelle Monaghan, Melissa Benoist and J.K. Simmons.

A man and his equation: the anxiety-plagued nineteenth-century physicist who contributed significantly to our understanding of the second law of thermodynamics. Ludwig Boltzmann's grave in Vienna's Central Cemetery bears a cryptic epitaph: S = k log W. This equation was Boltzmann's great discovery, and it contributed significantly to our understanding of the second law of thermodynamics. In Anxiety and the Equation, Eric Johnson tells the story of a man and his equation: the anxiety-plagued nineteenth-century physicist who did his most important work as he struggled with mental illness. Johnson explains that "S" in Boltzmann's equation refers to entropy, and that entropy is the central quantity in the second law of thermodynamics. The second law is always on, running in the background of our lives, providing a way to differentiate between past and future. We know that the future will be a state of higher entropy than the past, and we have Boltzmann to thank for discovering the equation that underlies that fundamental trend. Johnson, accessibly and engagingly, reassembles Boltzmann's equation from its various components and presents episodes from Boltzmann's life-beginning at the end, with "Boltzmann Kills Himself" and "Boltzmann Is Buried (Not Once, But Twice)." Johnson explains the second law in simple terms, introduces key concepts through thought experiments, and explores Boltzmann's work. He argues that Boltzmann, diagnosed by his contemporaries as neurasthenic, suffered from an anxiety disorder. He was, says Johnson, a man of reason who suffered from irrational concerns about his work, worrying especially about opposition from the scientific establishment of the day. Johnson's clear and concise explanations will acquaint the nonspecialist reader with such seemingly esoteric concepts as microstates, macrostates, fluctuations, the distribution of energy, log functions, and equilibrium. He describes Boltzmann's relationships with other scientists, including Max Planck and Henri Poincare, and, finally, imagines "an alternative ending," in which Boltzmann lived on and died of natural causes.
The third instalment of the gritty American drama series that follows the trials encountered by the emerging Mormon church as it struggles to find its place. As Joshua Steed (Eric Johnson) returns to Missouri with his new wife, he soon encounters problems when he's placed at the head of an army, raised by Governer Boggs, that plans to deal with 'the Mormon problem'. It's not long before rising tensions cause deep divisions within the family, testing family loyalties and trust.
Period religious/romantic drama about the pressures encountered by an incoming family into a religious township in New York state in the 1800s. As the Steed family tries to integrate into their new community of Palmyra, relations with townsfolk become strained when a hired help (Jonathan Scarfe) finds himself at the centre of a religious storm. Matters are worsened when two of the family's sons (Eric Johnson and Alexander Carroll) fall for the same daughter (Tiffany Dupont) of a local merchant (Jim Grimshaw), and wind up on either side of the religious divide. Trying to avoid the mounting tension, the family soon finds itself bound even closer to the town and having to question their own family loyalties.
'Venus Isle' by Eric Johnson is a matching guitar folio featuring note-for-note transcriptions from that recording. This folio is from the Recorded Versions for Guitar series from Hal Leonard and is the latest by Eric Johnson.
The second volume of the American drama series that follows the trials encountered by the emerging Mormon church as it struggles to find its place. With members of the church now being openly targeted, a young man with a vision leads his people into the west, seeking a sanctuary.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints currently boasts millions of members, thousands of missionaries, and congregations on every continent as well as in the vast majority of the world's countries. It's clear that their influence is still growing in our communities, places of business, and in the political arena. It's also clear that Christians need to be prepared to answer questions from Mormon friends, neighbors, co-workers, and from fellow believers as well.
In this updated and expanded edition of McKeever's popular and practical book, authors Bill McKeever and Eric Johnson provide ready responses to the common questions Mormons ask. With more than six decades of combined experience, the authors tackle such tough questions as: Why don't you accept Mormons as Christians? Do you believe Mormonism is a cult? If the LDS church is not true, which church is? How can you explain the many contradictions found throughout the Bible?
After offering analysis and responses to these and other questions, McKeever and Johnson provide helpful appendices that summarize Mormon beliefs, provide 101 Bible references to use in conversation, and expose common logical fallacies. Originally published in the 1980s, this volume has been--and will continue to be--a classic resource to help Christians become more successful in sharing their faith with Mormons.
"Why You Hear What You Hear" is the first book on the physics of sound for the nonspecialist to empower readers with a hands-on, ears-open approach that includes production, analysis, and perception of sound. The book makes possible a deep intuitive understanding of many aspects of sound, as opposed to the usual approach of mere description. This goal is aided by hundreds of original illustrations and examples, many of which the reader can reproduce and adjust using the same tools used by the author (e.g., very accessible applets for PC and Mac, and interactive web-based examples, simulations, and analysis tools will be found on the book's website: whyyouhearwhatyouhear.com.) Readers are positioned to build intuition by participating in discovery.
This truly progressive introduction to sound engages and informs amateur and professional musicians, performers, teachers, sound engineers, students of many stripes, and indeed anyone interested in the auditory world. The book does not hesitate to follow entertaining and sometimes controversial side trips into the history and world of acoustics, reinforcing key concepts. You will discover how musical instruments really work, how pitch is perceived, and how sound can be amplified with no external power source.
Sound is key to our lives, and is the most accessible portal to the vibratory universe. This book takes you there.

Financial identity theft is well understood with clear underlying motives. Medical identity theft is new and presents a growing problem. The solutions to both problems however, are less clear.
The Economics of Financial and Medical Identity Theft discusses how the digital networked environment is critically different from the world of paper, eyeballs and pens. Many of the effective identity protections are embedded behind the eyeballs, where the presumably passive observer is actually a fairly keen student of human behavior. The emergence of medical identity theft and the implications of medical data privacy are described in the second section of this book.
The Economics of Financial and Medical Identity Theft also presents an overview of the current technology for identity management. The book closes with a series of vignettes in the last chapter, looking at the risks we may see in the future and how these risks can be mitigated or avoided.
