August and Marie Krogh: Lives in Science
By Schmidt-Nielsen, Bodil
August Krogh, the son of a brewer, studied zoology in Copenhagen and earned his doctoral degree under the physiologist Christian Bohr, the father of the world-renowned nuclear physicist Niels Bohr. Krogh's unusual ability to construct instruments and complex apparatuses and his intuitive understanding of physical principles made it possible for him to improve on Bohr's methods. His findings led him to challenge Christian Bohr's ideas about oxygen secretion, and when Bohr refused to accept his findings, Krogh unwillingly came into a painful conflict with his own mentor. Krogh's continued studies of how oxygen is supplied to the tissues led to his realization that the blood flow in the finest blood vessels, the capillaries, has to be regulated through a mechanism that opens and closes the capillaries according to the tissue's need for oxygen. This idea and his scientific proof were at the time so new and revolutionary that he was promptly (in 1920) awarded the Nobel Prize. His fame in Denmark and all over the world continued to grow until his death in 1949. His scientific discoveries extended from respiration, exercise physiology and capillary physiology into comparative osmoregulation, isotope studies, active transport of ions in plants and animals, and finally insect flight. Another dramatic story of Krogh's life began when he introduced insulin production in Denmark in 1922. This move saved his own wife's life as well as numerous other lives and helped make Denmark's Novo-Nordisk the largest producer of insulin in the world today. Krogh's wife, Marie, became a physician and a renowned scientist in her own right. Throughout their harmonious marriage and partnership, Marie played an important role in her husband's life both scientifically and personally. Written by the proud daughter of August and Marie Krogh, this biography is based on numerous letters, scientific papers, interviews, symposia, and other sources as well as the author's own knowledge of her parents. The intertwining of the scientific work and personal lives of these two remarkable people is beautifully illustrated in a well-rounded picture of their struggles and triumphs. It is a unique book, full of human warmth and scientific understanding

Models of Reality for Static, Nuclei and Atoms
By Erickson, J. Alden
Albert Einstein once predicted that a time would come when nuclear physics and chemistry would be made understandable beyond the initial efforts of classical and wave mechanics. In his new book, J. Alden Erikson reveals enlightening discoveries that could change the way scholars view the atomic realm. "Inside this little book you can learn how physical, nuclear and atomic models were fuond that relate to the physics and chemistry of atoms based on their shape and intrinsic structures," Erikson explains. "Models of Reality" for Static, Nuclei and Atoms begins with the vital component to compounds, the icosahedral carbon atom. He emphasizes its importance in determining bond angles and hybridization and explains how it can be used to "build up and down to develop key elements related to Bohr's ground state..., and ultimately, [to] the chemistry and physics of particle-formed nuclei and atoms." The book is straightforward and concise, and numerous figures enhance the text. Erikson briefly delves into intriguing background on the dilemma of incomprehensible quantum mechanics before offering his models, based on carbon icosahedron, as a solution to understanding the nuclei-atomic relationship.

Awake America
By Barlane Ronald Eichbaum
The United States entered the third century of its existence facing many social, political, and religious issues. Socialism, Communism, and terrorism are such threats. Christianity is not practiced as in the past. Many US citizens neglect the Word of God, and moral decay has risen rapidly. May our people seek God's direction, as per II Chronicles 7:14, so God will bless America and its future. American patriots like Billy Graham, J. Edgar Hoover, and William Buckley expressed facts, thoughts, and quotations in the field of politics, religion, law, defense, energy, environment, and economics. Presently our military power is being reduced. Author Barlane Eichbaum relates biblical prophecy and writings on the Greek, Roman, and British empires to American maladies. These same signs of decay have led other once-great powers to their downfall. This historical and biblical perspective that Eichbaum possesses is a strong plus for Awake America.
