A Native of Nowhere: The Life of Nat Nakasa tells the story of how a quiet, serious African boy growing up in the sleepy coastal city of Durban in the 1940s became part of the generation of outspoken black South African journalists in the 1950s and 1960s who challenged state-sponsored segregation in that way that only writers can, simply by keeping a detailed record of its existence. In doing so, this story provides an alternative way of thinking about early resistance to apartheid, loosing it from the bonds of the organised opposition movement. For a man like Nat, freedom was not the end point of a long struggle arching toward justice. Rather it was something you took for yourself, day in and day out - one conversation, one interview, one multiracial party at a time. Born Nathaniel Ndazana Nakasa on May 12, 1937 like many South Africans of his generation, leaving his homeland was not simply a matter of deciding to go. It was also a matter of deciding never to come back. Not yet 30 years old, Nat had to look into his future and decide that being legally barred from his homeland was a price worth paying to see the world beyond its borders. This book tells the story of that short life. In doing so, it seeks in part to answer the troubling question of how Nat found himself in that New York City window in July 1965, desperate to the point of no return. But life, like history, cannot be read backwards, and so any biography of Nat Nakasa must begin with the acknowledgement that he was no simple martyr, no fallen hero of the anti-apartheid cause, but rather an ambitious, talented and flawed man whose life had the cold fortune of colliding with one of the most racially repressive regimes in the modern world. Attempts to bring Nakasa’s body home bore no fruit, and he was buried at the Ferncliff cemetery in upstate New York. A headstone placed by the Nieman Foundation 30 years later simply reads: Nathaniel Nakasa May 12 1937 - July 14 1965. Journalist, Nieman Fellow, South African. 1038 (the tombstone number). Many await the repatriation of Nat Nakasa’s body to South African.

Algebraic Geometry has been at the center of much of mathematics for hundreds of years. It is not an easy field to break into, despite its humble beginnings in the study of circles, ellipses, hyperbolas, and parabolas. This text consists of a series of exercises, plus some background information and explanations, starting with conics and ending with sheaves and cohomology. The first chapter on conics is appropriate for first-year college students (and many high school students). Chapter 2 leads the reader to an understanding of the basics of cubic curves, while Chapter 3 introduces higher degree curves. Both chapters are appropriate for people who have taken multivariable calculus and linear algebra. Chapters 4 and 5 introduce geometric objects of higher dimension than curves. Abstract algebra now plays a critical role, making a first course in abstract algebra necessary from this point on. The last chapter is on sheaves and cohomology, providing a hint of current work in algebraic geometry. This book is published in cooperation with IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute.

The two most powerful gods in the nine realm are gone, this has thrown Asgard into a short chaos. The royal blood line seems to disappear slowly everyday. As the remaining descendants of the bloodline scatter for an heir, a servant and friend of Thor, Derek Long has other plans. Orion, the first mortal son of Thor walks on Midgard. Other children of the gods also reside on Middle Earth. Under the leadership of Derek Long they will prepare for Ragnarok, the end of the world. The forces they face are far more powerful and ancient than they could possibly realize. Behind the leadership of Orion, the son of Thor, they will with possibly no help at all from the gods prepare for the end of the world. Surely they are doomed... Or are they?
Sam Bonham--bad husband, deadbeat dad, and possible criminal on the
run from the law--wanders out of modern-day East Texas into an
ersatz Wild West boomtown created for a movie that never happened.
And when Sam strikes a blow against the gangsters who've been
terrorizing the town, the locals look to him to save them. He's no
hero, but he's stumbled upon someone who is: John Wayne. But the
John Wayne of this story is not the stalwart lawman of Hollywood
films--he's a seventy-two-year-old man who had himself
cryogenically frozen. He's weak, bald, frail...and unrecognizable
to everyone but Sam.
