Who is the creature hiding in Central Park in New York City? Hudge Stone, a reporter with the New York Herald, attempts to find out and his search leads him to a government scientific study known as Project Dawning, which began in the jungles of the African Congo years ago. Doctor Luther Steele now heads the study and he holds the answer to what the being hiding in Central Park really is. Is he a primitive tribesman or the missing link himself? With the help of Doctor Dekko Quant, who once headed the project, Stone learns of the strange circumstances deep in the African jungles that produced the creature. His only hope is to write a story that will reveal the secret of the creature. That secret includes the medical discoveries of the last two centuries and beyond. It is a story connected to the findings of the past and the numerous possibilities of the future. A story that combines science with legend, fiction with current scientific fact.
Is it important for parents to take an active role in supporting their children’s learning processes? How can you be more empowered in your child’s education? Is your child at a potential advantage or disadvantage due to your family’s income? In her latest work, author Mattie Lee Solomon, PhD, documents various parental perspectives on these and many other questions concerning involvement in the learning processes of children. Missing Link presents a collection of data gathered from interviews with parents from all walks of life to discover more about what parents think of the education of their children. Furthermore, Solomon offers valuable information about getting involved in your child’s education and linking up with other parents for ideas on how to enhance your child’s learning experience. Also included are some of the important questions used during these interviews. Designed to encourage reflection, these questions can help parents determine if, in their child’s education, they are in fact the missing link.
This book discusses the controversy surrounding evolutionary theory and religious thought. Debates have mostly centered on the origin of species, but this book focuses on the origins of consciousness, thought, and the self while also considering the relationship between God and science.
There appears to be a distinct lack of God's power and presence in the lives of most Christians and their churches. Many are not experiencing the joy and peace that God offers to His children. The normal Christian life is meant to be one that expresses daily the reality of the life of Jesus Christ in and through followers of Christ - lives exhibiting His power and presence in all circumstances. This book examines a Missing Link in the lives of many Christians that will explain the lack of power and victory. The reader will be challenged to search Scripture and his or her own life and relationship with God to understand the important teachings of this book. Henry Hall Powell, Jr. is an ordained Christian minister and has served as an expository preacher and teacher since 1974. The Missing Link is Mr. Powell's first book and reflects his ongoing commitment to provide insight into the practical application of biblical truths for those who seek true spirituality. Mr. Powell received an A.B. Degree in Philosophy and Religion from Guilford College, attended Columbia Graduate School of Bible and Theology, and earned a M.B.A. degree from Winthrop University. He lives with his wife Melinda in Kure Beach, North Carolina and they have three married daughters and eight grandchildren.
Marshall Klarfeld's groundbreaking new book, "ADAM, the Missing Link" blows the lid off a closely-held package of historical and scientific facts proving that the human species was created by genetic engineering technology nearly a quarter of a million years ago.
We look for missing links in the sciences and humanities, but the essential missing link - metaphor - is always in front of us. In Missing Link, Jeffery Donaldson unites literary criticism and evolutionary and cognitive science to show how metaphor has been with us since the beginning of time as a seed in the nature of things. With examples from centuries of poets, critics, philosophers, and scientists, he details how metaphor is a chemistry, an exchange of energies forming and dissolving, and an openness in the spaces between things. He considers the ways in which DNA learns how to liken things that have been, how mutation makes errors and then tries them on, and how evolution is hypothesis - nature's way of "thinking more." The mind is a matrix of relations: neural synapses cascade into ever-changing pathways and patterns. Metaphor is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. It is the unbroken thread between matter and spirit. Whether offering analysis of a turn of phrase or chemical reaction, Missing Link presents a vision of literature that is also a vision of the cosmos, and vice versa. It enters the debate between evolution and religion, and challenges scientists, literary theorists, and religious advocates to rethink the relations between their disciplines.

Caliban (Fictitious character) by Sir Daniel Wilson
Exploring one of the main antagonists of Shakespeare's The Tempest, this 1873 volume studies Caliban, a seemingly deranged wild man who inhabits the island before Prospero and Miranda are sent there in exile. Scholars believe Caliban to be an anagram for an early English spelling of cannibal (canibal). Others believe the name may have been inspired by an Arabic word meaning "wild dog." This volume refers to Caliban as a "monster" and studies the character in relation to the supernatural, the island, evolution and other characters of the play.
Born eighteen months after the first Neanderthal skeleton was found and a year before Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species, Eugene Dubois vowed to discover a powerful truth in Darwin's deceptively simple ideas. There is a link, he declared, a link as yet unknown, between apes and Man. It takes a brilliant writer to elucidate a brilliant mind, and Pat Shipman shines as never before. The Man Who Found the Missing Link is an irresistible tale of adventure, scientific daring, and a strange and enduring love--and it is true.
