This issue of Scientific American asks the question, ´´Are We Almost Tapped Out?´´ It offers a series of stories about the state of the world´s water supplies. In ´´Making Every Drop Count,´´ freshwater expert Peter Gleick explains why clean water is a rare commodity for billions. Even when there is water for drinking, what about having enough for irrigation? Sandra Postrel tackles that issue in ´´Growing More Food with Less Water.´´ Is the era of Edison´s light coming to an end? Three pioneers in the field of light emitting diodes (LEDs) say yes. M. George Cranford, Nick Holonyak, Jr., and Frederick Kish, Jr. illuminate the near future in an article called ´´In Pursuit of the Ultimate Lamp.´´ Also, do you ever feel like a sap because you fell for a sales pitch? ´´The Science of Persuasion´´ should make you feel better. Columnists Philip and Phylis Morrison ask whether we´ve characterized the beginning of the universe correctly, in ´´The Big Bang: Wit or Wisdom?´´ And James Burke´s Connections column ties together body-snatching, mastodons, war, and raincoats. 1.

The arrival of the French and Belgians to the Congo, at the beginning of the 20th Century, brought along the myth of Parisian elegance among the Congolese youth working for the colonialists. In 1922, G.A. Matsoua was the first?ever Congolese to return from Paris fully clad as an authentic French gentleman, which caused great uproar and much admiration amongst his fellow countrymen. He was the first Grand Sapeur. ? The Sapeurs today belong to ?Le SAPE? (Société des Ambianceurs et des Personnes Élégantes) - one of the world?s most exclusive clubs. Members have their own code of honour, codes of professional conduct and strict notions of morality. It is a world within a world within a city. ? Respected and admired in their communities, today?s sapeurs see themselves as artists. Each one has his own repertoire of gestures that distinguishes him from the others. They are also after their own great dream: to travel to Paris and to return to Bacongo as lords of elegance. ? Designer brands of suits and accessories are of the utmost importance to Sapeurs - Pierre Cardin, Roberto Cavalli, Dior, Fendi, Gaultier, Gucci, Issey Miyake, Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Versace, Yohji Yamamoto ? are their patron saints. Unlike some US hip-hop gangs who are dressed in similar fine threads, there is no bloodshed here ? here your clothes do all the fighting for you, otherwise you are not fit to be called a Sapeur.
Judith Graber has always been the obedient daughter. When her older brother Josh struggled with his love life, she offered wise counsel. When her younger brother Caleb flirted with the idea of leaving their order, she firmly told him he was wrong. Over the years, she’s watched her younger siblings, helped around the house, and worked in her family’s store during her spare time. Judith feels overworked, overlooked, and underappreciated this holiday season. But everything changes when her father hires Ben Knox. Ben Knox is the ´´bad boy” of Sugarcreek. Though he’s never considered jumping the fence, he’s certainly never tried to be anything close to dutiful. Two years ago he left Sugarcreek under a cloud of shame. Rumors circulated that his rumspringa had been filled with more than the usual harmless explorations. Now he’s back and working side by side with Judith. As the chaos of the holiday season threatens to sap all joy, sparks fly between Ben and Judith. But Judith steels herself to ignore her infatuation. The last thing she wants to be is just one more girl who falls under Ben’s spell. Ben, on the other hand, wants Judith to realize there’s more to him than his bad reputation. When he fled Sugarcreek, he was running from a disruptive home life. Now that he’s back, he wants a fresh beginning. Could this Christmas season bring love and a new life for the unlikeliest pair in Sugarcreek? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robynn Rodriguez.

Read with your ears and listen with your heart. Travel through history with a streamZcast.com compendium of history and its myriad voices.... streamZcast is a smart media publisher (no dead trees) creating alternative creative learning tools for a new media age. The studio team adds sfx (sound effects to you and I), music, song, and innovations to add drama, emphasis and, yes, fun - new alternative learning tools for adults, students and children alike. This streamZcast compendium discusses five remarkable American writers - ´´Writers of Passage´´, writing of ordinary folks in a new frontier. Europeans and others inherit their cultures; young Americans had to build theirs almost literally from scratch. All that means that the streamZcast compendium begins with John Filson. Though born in Pennsylvania, he wrote of the iconic Daniel Boone in the new territory of Kentucky (spelt Kentucke at that time). Then, rapidly on his heels, came the great romantic, James Fenimore Cooper - and American literary style was beginning. The world was to learn about their young but complicated nation. Then a long glimpse into the harrowing horrors of slavery through the eyes, experiences, words and oratory of Frederick Douglass, a man who bought his own freedom. Next, piloting up and down the mighty Mississippi, the mighty Mark Twain with his imaginary childhood friends, Huck, Tom, and Puddin´ Head: America gains a significant sense of humour, the world smiles. Rounding out this Part 1 is Upton Sinclair. His work changed America in ways that affect his countrymen to this day. Each of the streamZcast compendiums has in-studio conversations describing how the stories of history were researched and recorded; comprehensive bibliographies; and a list of companion eBookZ available from the streamZcast.com. Read with your ears, listen with your heart, listen to the future of history, with streamZcast. Sapere Aude (Latin for ´´Dare to Know´´). 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bill Goodwin, Mark Woods.
