Hourglass Socioeconomics: Principles & Fundamentals by Blaine Stewart Summary

Hourglass Socioeconomics:Principles and Fundamentals, lays the framework of a “What If” scenario of what would need to take place in a social economic distribution system to gain and maintain autonomy from external influence. If a distribution system is constantly pulled toward the central goal of optimal balance, value of wealth in equity and equality will be manageably controllable. The underlying purpose is the search for equilibrium. A mathematical approach is applied to understand economic systems in place today and the faults in their structural design and integrity. Models are used as visual illustrations to show how value in wealth and control move throughout the distribution within the hierarchical class structures as input is transformed to output. Analogies in other sciences and systems act to explain some of these concepts in simpler terms

Measuring Time - By an Hourglass by Kitty Crockett Robertson Summary

Ipswich Chronicle Photo Kitty Robertson's "Measuring Time" is an exquisite collection of essays, reflections on a 20th century life in small town New England, that first were published in the Ipswich Chronicle. Kitty is the author of "The Orchard: A Memoir." That remembering of hard times and kind people received glowing reviews: Boston Globe: "In graceful prose, 'The Orchard' makes the old seem new; it unsettles us from the uncertainties of our own modern truths." New York Times: "The book is nothing short of a hymn." San Jose Mercury: "This book is a gem." Washington Post: "Adele Crockett Robertson turns out to have been a very good writer, and "The Orchard" is a lovely book." "Kitty's writing has a rhythm like the tides. Like music. Like the best bluegrass music, which from me is the ultimate compliment." North Shore Sunday editor Taylor Armerding continues: "Mostly she taught those of us who had the good fortune to know her, that you can see the world without having to see the whole world. That when you choose a tiny corner of it, get to know its land and its people, train your eyes and your mind to look for beauty in the great, small and tiniest things, that you have seen a world and lived a life as exquisite as any." "Measuring Time" is like that, petals, perhaps, of the apple blossoms of "The Orchard." "Look through my eyes for a little while," Kitty invites, "and may what you see bring you the joy it brings to me."

Bearing an Hourglass by Piers Anthony Summary

Like On a Pale Horse, this second, complete-in-itself novel of the Incarnations of Immortality is a richly imagined and always fascinating story. And again, Piers Anthony adds to his gripping plot a serious, though-provoking study of good and evil. When life seemed pointless to Norton, he accepted the position as the Incarnation of Time, even though it meant living backward from present to past. The other seemily all-powerful Incarnates of Immortality—Death, Fate, War, and Nature—made him welcome. Even Satan greeted him with gifts. But he soon discovered that the gifts were cunning traps. While he had been distracted, he had become enmeshed in a complex scheme of the Evil One to destroy all that was good. In the end, armed with only the Hourglass, Norton was forced to confront the immense power of Satan directly. And though Satan banished him to Hell, he was resolved to fight on.

The Hourglass by Liz Heron Summary

Spring 2000. Paul Geddes visits Venice to research the fin-de-siècle opera singer, Esme Maguire, seeking out a cache of papers held by Eva Forrest, the widow of a collector. What he reads begins in the 1680s, moving through the city’s later history of Enlightenment and Revolution, describing a life stretched beyond human possibilities. She travels across Europe to sing in Regency London and Edinburgh, then Belle Epoque Paris, always returning to Venice, its shadows and its luminosity, its changes and its permanence. What would it be like to live for nearly 300 years, as an exceptional being who must renew herself time after time, as those she has loved age and die? Could this story be grounded in reality or be merely the product of an ageing woman’s delusion, as Paul suspects. Warily, Eva and Paul fall in love, their tentative emotions bringing them closer until, on a trip to the Dolomites, Eva’s past catches up with her.

Hourglass by Dani Shapiro Summary

The best-selling novelist and memoirist delivers her most intimate and powerful work: a piercing, life-affirming memoir about marriage and memory, about the frailty and elasticity of our most essential bonds, and about the accretion, over time, of both sorrow and love. Hourglass is an inquiry into how marriage is transformed by time--abraded, strengthened, shaped in miraculous and sometimes terrifying ways by accident and experience. With courage and relentless honesty, Dani Shapiro opens the door to her house, her marriage, and her heart, and invites us to witness her own marital reckoning--a reckoning in which she confronts both the life she dreamed of and the life she made, and struggles to reconcile the girl she was with the woman she has become. What are the forces that shape our most elemental bonds? How do we make lifelong commitments in the face of identities that are continuously shifting, and commit ourselves for all time when the self is so often in flux? What happens to love in the face of the unexpected, in the face of disappointment and compromise--how do we wrest beauty from imperfection, find grace in the ordinary, desire what we have rather than what we lack? Drawing on literature, poetry, philosophy, and theology, Shapiro writes gloriously of the joys and challenges of matrimonial life, in a luminous narrative that unfurls with urgent immediacy and sharp intelligence. Artful, intensely emotional work from one of our finest writers.

To keep his mother alive, Max will embark on another perilous adventure into new worlds with hidden dangers.

Secrets of the Golden Hourglass by William H. Christ Jr. Summary

Legend has it that Aztec Indians used gold from their El Dorado claim to build their seven cities of gold. When the Spanish conquistadores came to the Western hemisphere in the 1520s, the Indians flooded their mine. Its location remained a secret until the days of the California Gold Rush, when the Dutchman Mining Company may have rediscovered it. After a short time, a powerful earthquake caused the mine to become lost again. Suddenly, on March 6, 1989, a new entrance to that mine was revealed once more when two construction workers who were excavating a foundation fell into a pit and were killed. The accident occurred on the grounds of the naval training base of Fort Warren, outside of San Diego, along the beautiful Pacific coast. Secret mining operations resumed with government money stolen from the construction project. Shortly thereafter, the discovery of an antique golden hourglass unlocks an adventure tale of cover-ups, greed, kidnapping, and murder. Both naval and civilian personnel face unusual challenges and must make an ultimate sacrifice to appease an ancient Aztec curse.
