Jennifer has to prove that Dr. Fielding funded his biotech firm by dealing in illegally obtained human organs - including her husband's -- for transplant into the bodies of people who could pay almost any price to extend their lives. But that's not the worst of Sherwood Fielding's trangressions against nature, as Jennifer soon finds out. Working on the cutting edge of a lucrative field like genetics is risky - and Jennifer finds herself in a maelstrom of murder, industrial espionage, deceit and personal betrayal. Embroiled in a plot of unimaginable medical perversion, Jennifer must fight for the truth about the science being done at the firm. Especially as it leads her to the truth of how and why her husband died. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Doctor Robert Appleton is a promising young research psychiatrist who has patented a new drug to curb violence in humans. He recruits young women to consent to his sordid research design by injecting them with a street-drug “cocktail” of PCP, Ritalin, and cocaine. The U.S. Government is interested in Appleton’s work to quell a Muslim uprising in Indonesia in retaliation for the U.S. victory in the Gulf War. However, the U.S. intelligence community is compromised when Appleton’s secret obsession of sexually molesting young women is uncovered. Hounded by the Houston police, Appleton goes undercover with the CIA’s help. However, Appleton’s predilections propel him to kill again and again, safe within the government’s witness protection program. The reader is quickly immersed in the worlds of psychiatric research, espionage, and detective work as the CIA vows to protect Appleton’s identity at the expense of young girls dying to his sexual fantasies.

The Protocol of the Gods

A Study of the Kasuga Cult in Japanese History

Author: Allan G. Grapard

Publisher: Univ of California Press

ISBN: 9780520910362

Category: Religion

Page: 312

The Protocol of the Gods is a pioneering study of the history of relations between Japanese native institutions (Shinto shrines) and imported Buddhist institutions (Buddhist temples). Using the Kasuga Shinto shrine and the Kofukuji Buddhist temple, one of the oldest and largest of the shrine-temple complexes, Allan Grapard characterizes what he calls the combinatory character of pre-modern Japanese religiosity. He argues that Shintoism and Buddhism should not be studied in isolation, as hitherto supposed. Rather, a study of the individual and shared characteristics of their respective origins, evolutions, structures, and practices can serve as a model for understanding the pre-modern Japanese religious experience. Spanning the years from a period before historical records to the forcible separation of the Kasuga-Kofukuji complex by the Meiji government in 1868, Grapard presents a wealth of little-known material. He includes translations of rare texts and provides new, accessible translations of familiar documents.

How I took down Putin’s doping empire

Can one man take down an empire? The Protocol is a breathtaking real-life political thriller. As a leading chemical scientist and Director of the Moscow Anti-Doping Laboratory, Dr Grigory Rodchenkov was at the forefront of global efforts to detect drugs cheats in sport. Yet he was simultaneously running the most elaborate doping scheme in history, helping thousands of athletes and elite players evade detection. Then the cracks started to show, and Vladimir Putin sent him a chilling message . . . Icarus, the Oscar-winning Netflix film, followed Grigory Rodchenkov as he turned whistleblower, fled Russia and entered the US Witness Protection Programme. In this explosive memoir he reveals how everything he has exposed so far — leading to Russia’s double Olympic bans – is merely the tip of the iceberg. Drawn from diaries, official e-mails and memos smuggled out of Russia, The Protocol is the full story by the one man the Kremlin hoped would never talk about its quest to win at all costs. ‘I am a patriot, yet I am a traitor. I am one of the reasons my country has won so many Olympic medals over the last decade, yet I am also the reason they are banned from the Olympics. I am a devoted husband and father, yet I have seen neither my wife or my children in two years. If you read the news, you will see that my name is everywhere, yet I myself am nowhere. I am known throughout Russia, yet I am a ghost. Living anonymously in an anonymous town, under the protection of the US government, in fear from my life, somewhere in America – the one country I tried my hardest to help my country beat, year after year, decade after decade’

The Protocol Relating to the Mechanism for Conflict Prevention, Management, Resolution, Peace-Keeping and Security

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Peace and Conflict Studies, Security, grade: 2,0, University of Duisburg-Essen, course: Seminar "International Relations and Conflict Management in Sub-Saharan Africa," language: English, abstract: Almost ten years ago, on 10 December 1999, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) adopted the Protocol Relating to the Mechanism for Conflict Prevention, Management, Resolution, Peace-Keeping and Security and hence passed "probably (...) the most ambitious instrument on the regulation of collective security ever attempted to date" (Abass 2000: 212). After three military interventions in the 1990ies ECOWAS, a purely economically intended community at the beginning, was in need of better legal foundations for its missions. The interventions in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea-Bissau were largely characterized by political disputes mostly between anglophone and francophone members of ECOWAS, by weak legal foundations and massive shortcomings in financing, training and equipping the military missions. None of the three interventions can be seen as a pure success. There is even a controversy debate whether the ECOWAS interventions might have prolonged instead of shortened the civil wars in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea-Bissau (see Howe 1996). The Protocol Relating to the Mechanism for Conflict Prevention, Management, Resolution, Peace-Keeping and Security was therefore the attempt to put future ECOWAS interventions on better ground. The outcome was promising, but still bears many deficiancies. Some relate to the provisions made in the Protocol, some relate to the nature of ECOWAS. The sucess or failure of ECOWAS military engagement in securing peace in the region is vital for the all-african efforts to build up regional peace-keeping powers within the framework of the African Union and furthermore for the decentralization of the peacekeeping efforts of the United Nati"

The Protocol: the Best Supplements for Building Muscle Mass, How to Use Them and W

Best selling Amazon author, 16-year professional Personal Trainer & Men's Health Coach Arnold Sturtz on the Protocol: "If you ever wanted a single text that cut out all the fluff and hype about how to build muscle with natural supplementation; wanted to get a lean, rock hard physique naturally; or wanted to know the most effective supplement regimen to add to your weight training or bodybuilding routine so as to put on the most muscle mass as quickly as possible without gaining body fat, then this book is exactly what you've been looking for: The Protocol: The Best Supplements for Building Muscle Mass, How to Use Them & Why They Work " What the Protocol Does: The Protocol leverages macronutrients, micronutrients and natural substances to achieve our goal of increased muscle mass: we are manipulating our hormones and bodily systems - and therefore our musculature - into massively accelerated growth with food and strategically timed supplementation. Everyone that follows the Protocol diligently can expect to put on whatever amount of muscle mass they would put on during a 6 week cycle of anabolic steroids/pro hormones. For some, that will be 5 lbs. for others it will be 25. You read that correctly: unless you are already a long time user of anabolic steroids or prohormones or have already gotten as muscular as you can possibly be naturally or otherwise, the Protocol is as effective as any 6 week cycle of those substances with none of the risks and all of the benefits (and then some ), so long as you are in good health at the outset. You can further expect a colossal increase in libido, feelings of well being as well as an increased sense of your 'alpha' self. The Principle of Nutrient/Supplement Timing: The time at which the supplements discussed in this book are consumed is critical. Forgetting something here and there will not throw the whole Protocol out of whack or set you back very far, if at all. That being said, what we are aiming towards here is consistency of application: the more consistent you are, the better your results will be. Your body is most receptive to certain nutrients and supplements and their utilization at certain times. Said differently, there are 'windows of opportunity.' Some of these windows stay open longer than others and we take advantage of that to maximize your muscle building results. Your Diet: Muscle building orthodoxy dictates that there are two ways to gain muscle mass. The first is referred to as "Bulking." A bulking program involves eating significantly more calories than the amount it takes to maintain ones current body weight. By doing this, ones body has an excess of nutrients available to it. Coupled with the muscle stimulation of lifting heavy things, we gain more muscle. The 'problem' with bulking is that in addition to new muscle growth, one gains more fat very readily given the excess calories ingested. This is why people on a bulking program follow that program with a "cutting" phase: the shedding of the fat gained while bulking. The second way to gain muscle mass is through what is referred to as "Recomping" and that's basically what we do in the Protocol. Instead of ingesting calories in significant excess of what it takes to maintain our bodyweight so as to gain more muscle, we are going to eat inline with our goals; and, we are going to eat specific amounts of macronutrients (Proteins, Carbohydrates and Fats) and enhance them with specific supplements at specific times. By doing this, we forgo gaining excess body fat; actually replace much of the excess body fat deposits we already have with muscle; strategically manipulate our hormone levels for the better; and, gain brand new muscle mass as a result. In short, we are "recompositioning" (i.e. Recomping) our bodies. The Protocol: Have YOU Done It?
