    The 9/11 rescue dogs: Portraits of the last surviving animals who scoured Ground Zero one decade on During the chaos of the 9/11 attacks, where almost 3,000 people died, nearly 100 loyal search and rescue dogs and their brave owners scoured Ground Zero for survivors. Now, ten years on, just 12 of these heroic canines survive, and they have been commemorated in a touching series of portraits entitled 'Retrieved'. The dogs worked tirelessly to search for anyone trapped alive in the rubble, along with countless emergency service workers and members of the public. Travelling across nine states in the U.S....

    YNet reports that we were a lot closer to war last weekend than most Israelis realize. The war book is ready. When Defense Minister Ehud Barak arrived at the Defense Ministry Headquartersí meeting room last Saturday, a thick war book titled ďOperation SouthĒ was already awaiting his approval on his desk. In those hours, Israel was on the verge of embarking on war in the Gaza Strip. The book did not pertain to a limited operation. The selected targets would have certainly prompted a major flare-up, including difficult regional implications. Just like in Operation Cast Lead, the political leadership granted...

The 46th vice president discusses those topics and more in his candid, unapologetic interview with Gangel, and heíll likely have more to say when he appears live on TODAY with Matt Lauer on Aug. 30, the day his book hits stores.

    Reagan Son Claims Dad Had Alzheimer's as President 2011 is a big year for Ronald Reagan fans, being the centennial of his February 6 birth in Tampico, Ill. But youngest son Ron Reagan is spoiling the good cheer with a new book that suggests the Gipper suffered from Alzheimer's disease while in the White House, a claim dismissed by Reagan's doctors and outside experts. "Had the diagnosis been made in, say, 1987, would he have stepped down?" Ron asks, regarding the disease confirmed in 1994. "I believe he would have," he writes in My Father At 100: A Memoir, due...

    A trio of gun rights advocates in Michigan have tried to address the knotty problem of what their kids might go through trying to figure why Mom and Dad go out armed when others don't. The authors of "My Parents Open Carry" say they couldn't find any pro-gun children's books, and so put theirs together with goal of providing "a wholesome family book that reflects the views of the majority of the American people, i.e., that self-defense is a basic natural right and that firearms provide the most efficient means for that defense." Writers Brian Jeffs and Nate Nephew are...

    It is, at minimum, an intriguing coincidence that White House press secretary Robert Gibbs announced his resignation a mere three weeks before Simon & Schuster is publishing its much-buzzed-about January 25th release, O: A Presidential Novel by the celebrated author ďAnonymous.Ē The book, described in news accounts as a 368-page roman ŗ clef inspired by President Obama and his inner circle, has yet to leak, nor has Campbell Scottís audio version been heard. The rumors suggest that the mysterious unnamed author has ďvast personal experienceĒ of the president and is privy to Obamaís 2012 reelection strategy.

    From time to time, a book can change history. Dr. Jamie Glazovís Showdown With Evil is such a book, for it restores faith in American exceptionalism. Although its author was not privileged to be born in this country ó or maybe for that very reason ó he has dedicated his life to promoting Americaís excellence. His new book tells us why millions of people from all over the world are willing to pay any price, even death sentences, to join this unique land of freedom ó as he and I both did. It also proves that the Democratic Partyís portrayal...

    Buckey Firearms Association ^ | 21 December, 2010 | Chris Knox
    During a typical state-mandated defensive firearms class there comes an hour Ė usually during that sleepy time after lunch Ė where the instructor gives some obligatory advice on what to do should you ever be forced to use the skills you're learning. Generally the advice comes down to two points: * Call 911. * Don't say anything. The reason you call 911 is to demonstrate your human concern and compassion for the dirtbag whose chest you just ventilated as he threatened you or your family with death or grievous injury, and so that you can get police officers on-site to...

    George W. Bush's book is atop the bestseller list, which could help explain the presence of hundreds of people who waited in line Monday at the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, N.C., to have a book signed by the former president and former first lady Laura Bush. The event sold out in a matter of hours Saturday. Library officials would not say how many people obtained the wristbands necessary for admission. According to USA Today, in the week ending Dec. 12, Bush's book, "Decision Points," which was released a week after the midterm election reached No. 1 on the nonfiction...

    WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (AP) ó Florida sheriff's deputies have arrested a Colorado man who wrote a guide for pedophiles on obscenity charges. Polk County deputies arrested Phillip Ray Greaves II at his home in Pueblo, Colo., early Monday on a warrant out of Florida. Polk Sheriff Grady Judd says his office was able to arrest Greaves on Florida obscenity charges because Greaves sold and mailed his book, The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-lover's Code of Conduct, to Polk deputies. Judd says Greaves even signed the book. The self-published book offered advice to pedophiles on how to make...

    The Salt Lake Tribune ^ | Dec 17, 2010 | PEGGY FLETCHER STACK
    The LDS Church has made subtle ó but significant ó changes to chapter headings in its online version of the faithís signature scripture, The Book of Mormon, toning down some earlier racial allusions. The words ďskin of blacknessĒ were removed from the introductory italicized summary in 2 Nephi, Chapter 5, in describing the ďcurseĒ God put on disbelieving Lamanites. Deeper into the volume, in Mormon, Chapter 5, the heading changes from calling Lamanites ďa dark, filthy, and loathsome peopleĒ to ďbecause of their unbelief, the Lamanites will be scattered, and the Spirit will cease to strive with them.Ē

    Former President George W. Bush has pledged not to publicly criticize his successor, Barack Obama, but he did offer some praise Monday during a live broadcast on Facebook to promote his new book. Bush participated in an hour-long discussion on Facebook Live with the site's founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg and was asked what he thought the current administration was handling well. The former president responded that he liked Obama's policy on Afghanistan. "I think the idea of putting more troops in was something that I can applaud," Bush said. "I also appreciate some of the education position. As...
