    Story
    (10)

    In 2000, Martin Bojowald, then a 27-year-old postdoc at Pennsylvania State University, used a relatively new theory called loop quantum gravity - a combination of Einstein’s theory of gravity and quantum mechanics - to create a simple model of the universe. Loop quantum cosmology, or LQC, was born, and with it, a theory that managed to do something even Einstein’s theory of relativity had failed to do - illuminate the birth of the universe.

    Randall says: "Decent Subject, But Narrator Ruins It All"
    "Difficult Listen"
    Overall

    I had to force myself to continue through this dry, disconnected, footnote riddled and meandering discourse. Very difficult to stay focused on what the author was explaining as the discourse bounced from technical ,to philosophical, to who got a nobel prize, to who published, what Greek's thought to what is thought of today. I lost the thread some place in this author's maze. If you know what existed before the big bang it all be very clear - otherwise listen to something else.

    (3489)

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    This work offers a firsthand account of the Battle of Tora Bora and an insider's look at the extraordinary nature of America's supersecret counterterrorist unit---an elite and mysterious group known as Delta Force.

    Overall

    Slow at start and cirquitutious at times but a very infomative report of the Tora Bora situation and difficulties faced when trying to kill Usama Bin Laden by precision bombs.
