The Puzzles of Mars is a puzzle book intended for bright or gifted young people in grades 8 through 12. The book is a fictional tale about a mathematician from Earth who travels to the planet Mars to share and exchange puzzles with Martians at the Martian Academy of Sciences. Most of the puzzles appear to be difficult, yet they have simple, ingenious solutions. Some of the puzzles require a little mathematical skill, though not much beyond what is usually taught in American grade schools. The main focus is on puzzles that are based on important mathematical ideas and concepts. Each puzzle is a special instance of deep, important mathematical ideas like symmetry, invariance, parity, and relative motion. A Notes for Teachers section is included with ideas and questions to stimulate classroom discussion of mathematical ideas and concepts.

Pantelo Pandeli was inspired to write this book as an act of goodwill that could bring positive results and help create a better and more peaceful society. The Paradise Located As God Identified in the Universe resulted from the revelation that Saint John the Divine is in the Bible. The author provides scientific proof that he has located paradise in heaven. I investigated planet Mars and claim there was life there, and destruction fell upon them to finally identify similar figures on heavens, and using theology and paleontology again, claim that it is God's head image. Broaden your knowledge and your consciousness with this eye-opening book that soars through the universe. Paradise awaits.

Many a sciences have attempted to predict the life span of a human being, but have conceded that an accurate assessment of life span is not only a difficult proposition, but also arguably, is impossible. This has been a dark area in the field of astrology as well. Is human life subject to the whims of Shiva, or is there a measurable method to His will? Everyday, we come across cases that are baffling, like the case of twins where the basic birth chart does not change much except by a few degrees of ascendant, but one twin only lives for a short period, while the second lives on to a ripe old age. How can one foresee this? The book provides a simple astrological method to assess the life span of human life and predict the longevity block of a subject in terms of – short, medium or a full life. This is equally applicable to the charts of twins. The timing of demise is then calculated by using the Nirayana Shoola Dasha.

This groundbreaking volume investigates the most fundamental question of all: Why is there something rather than nothing? The question is explored from diverse and radical perspectives: religious, naturalistic, platonistic and skeptical. Does science answer the question? Or does theology? Does everything need an explanation? Or can there be brute, inexplicable facts? Could there have been nothing whatsoever? Or is there any being that could not have failed to exist? Is the question meaningful after all? The volume advances cutting-edge debates in metaphysics, philosophy of cosmology and philosophy of religion, and will intrigue and challenge readers interested in any of these subjects.
