Through the detailed explications of his own poems and stories based upon events from his own life, he immerses his reader deep into the intricate "mechanisms" of poems and stories, explaining the complex elements and terms of artistic craft so clearly in his examples that they hardly seem "complex" at all. - Larry D. Thomas, Member, Texas Institute of Letters, 2008 Texas Poet Laureate Colliding with Orion proves ingenious in its structure, tone, and content. It is not an easy guide to follow or a comfortable dialogue to have. The questions Wise poses are difficult (What does morality feel like? How does one shoulder the burden of remorse?) and the techniques he recommends are increasingly exacting. The bottom line, to his credit, is the belief that "every reader lives a life worth writing." And writing elevates those lives. - Janis Haswell, Professor Emerita of English, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Colliding with Orion Writing from Life is not your typical sanitized writing text with dusty examples from the "masters." This work is fierce--Wise tells it like it is, warts and all. Writing from Life means exactly that, real life, written by real people with real flaws and problems. So in the spirit of shared risk, he offers authentic writing examples with anecdotes which share their autobiographical connections in a section he calls THE WRITER. Wise then gives a close reading of the piece (or group of pieces) to teach techniques which are mechanically in action within the work in a section called THE CRAFT. Each discussion closes with THE INVITATION where he hopes to have triggered recollections of moments and situations from a reader's own life, so that he/she may address the blank page because, as Wise says, from one writer to another, everyone lives a life worth writing about. Colliding with Orion addresses various ways to enter poetry (both form and free verse) as well as short stories with frequent notes in sections called CONSIDER THIS which offer tips on such topics as performance, revision, characterization, and much more!

The suggested amendments of the Rule of the Road at Sea, with regard to the Collision clauses, is only a better adaptation of the Rules already in force, and is perfectly simple. They could be put in force immediately; could be acted upon by one vessel as a beginning, with advantage to that vessel and to all that came near her; also there is no need to wait for the assent of other nations. If our shipowners were compelled by Order in Council to act upon my suggestions to-morrow, they would not only benefit themselves, but all whose vessels approached them; without raising a doubt or creating confusion in the minds of any. I have read, on page 23 of "Observations on the Rule of the Road at Sea," a book recently published (in his unofficial capacity) by the author of the "Rules in Rhyme," too late to notice in its proper place, under the head of Collisions at Sea, that the writer expects to see the day when large steamers will not be compelled by law to give way to smacks, luggers, and barges. Now, inasmuch as these vessels, which represent an immense and important home-trade, are dependent upon wind for their motive power, it happens mostly that they could not get out of the way of a steamer even if they had an indication beforehand on which side the steamer desired to pass; so that steamers must, as at present, either be put to the inconvenience of losing a minute by stopping, or they must deliberately drown the crews of these small vessels. The general impression has hitherto prevailed that everyone had equal rights on the Queen's highway, and that the lives of smacksmen were more valued by the nation than the saving of a few minutes of time to...

The Star Trek: Signature Edition series continues with this thrilling adventure featuring Commander Spock, Captain Kirk, and the U.S.S. Enterprise. Of all the experiences shared by Captain Kirk and the crew of the Starship Enterprise™ during their first five-year mission, two were among the most perilous: a journey to the nonphysical realm of Transition where the massive computer known as Memory Prime was situated, and the nightmarish mission to Talin IV, a world poised on the brink of destruction that Kirk was forbidden to save. In the twenty-third century, a hundred years before a sentient artificial life-form would be allowed to earn a Starfleet commission, the Federation considers the use of self-aware artificial intelligences to be little more than slavery, except for the immense computer system of Memory Prime—the key hub in the Federation's vast network of interstellar library planets. There, the A.I.s known as Pathfinders inhabit Transition—a virtual world so different from our universe that the A.I.s themselves debate whether or not the physical universe is real. But when an ancient enemy reaches out from the shadows of Vulcan's darkest history and threatens to destroy the Federation, Spock must risk his career, and his life, to enter the Pathfinders' realm. Technologically and politically, Talin IV is little different from late-twentieth century Earth. But as a series of mysterious events pushes that world closer to self-annihilation, the Prime Directive prevents Captain Kirk and his crew from doing anything to prevent it. When the worst appears to happen and Kirk takes desperate action to give the Talin a chance to step back from the nuclear abyss, Talin IV is consumed by radioactive fire. Now, with a world destroyed and the Enterprise dead in space, the careers of Kirk and his crew are over. Disgraced and despised, Kirk has only one chance to redeem himself and his crew: Somehow, he must make his way back to Talin IV and discover what really happened, even if it means proving that a world died because he broke Starfleet's most sacred law.

THE RUNDOWN:Readers will taste the labyrinth of Chris's journey in the tongue tricks of poetry. The implied narrative of this full-length collection is a surrealistic and mystical quest that recognizes people own only two things: death and their time before it. In the tradition of "the blind seer," Chris Wise juxtaposes somnolence and consciousness, sanity and madness, being sighted and blind; these establish the special and known worlds where Wise weaves poetry filled with symbolism, mythology, religion, and imagery.THE NARRATIVE:Heartbroken and full of regret, Chris abuses sleeping pills and many other things until his consciousness divided from his body and entered the desert. In this magical place, insects and animals speak, forgotten gods roam, and the anti-Christ waits in gestation. This is a world of similes and symbols, rhymes, and DMT-like entities. Madness awaits in bills and heartbreak. Purpose and wisdom prove harder to discover.BUT WHAT OF OUR HERO? The insects and elves have transformed; the larvae soon will too. They have offered him advice and warnings. Will he listen and transform into someone wiser? He already carries two coins for Charon. Life is short, but what will Chris strive for before his toll is paid?

Derelict satellites, equipment and other debris orbiting Earth (aka space junk) have been accumulating for many decades and could damage or even possibly destroy satellites and human spacecraft if they collide. During the past 50 years, various National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) communities have contributed significantly to maturing meteoroid and orbital debris (MMOD) programs to their current state. Satellites have been redesigned to protect critical components from MMOD damage by moving critical components from exterior surfaces to deep inside a satellite's structure. Orbits are monitored and altered to minimize the risk of collision with tracked orbital debris. MMOD shielding added to the International Space Station (ISS) protects critical components and astronauts from potentially catastrophic damage that might result from smaller, untracked debris and meteoroid impacts. Limiting Future Collision Risk to Spacecraft: An Assessment of NASA's Meteoroid and Orbital Debris Program examines NASA's efforts to understand the meteoroid and orbital debris environment, identifies what NASA is and is not doing to mitigate the risks posed by this threat, and makes recommendations as to how they can improve their programs. While the report identified many positive aspects of NASA's MMOD programs and efforts including responsible use of resources, it recommends that the agency develop a formal strategic plan that provides the basis for prioritizing the allocation of funds and effort over various MMOD program needs. Other necessary steps include improvements in long-term modeling, better measurements, more regular updates of the debris environmental models, and other actions to better characterize the long-term evolution of the debris environment.

The crew of the XV-ftl was looking forward to shore leave, vacation, and a chance to see their families after a month in space. But once they brought back the news that they had discovered aliens, they were doomed to another, and longer, journey. Accompanying them on the return were several technical experts, who seemed to be more interested in squabbling with each other than meeting the first alien race in the history of humankind. But face to face with the blue humanoid Norglans, everyone began to realise just how important these first meetings could be - for they could make the difference between peaceful coexistence in space and interstellar war!

The alien ruins that dotted Earth's landscape were an enigma. Archaeologist Rond Heshke dismissed as a ridiculous hoax the photographic evidence which suggested that the ruins disobeyed the laws of time. The Titanium Legions believed that the ruins had been left behind by an invading force from space, which had been repelled in a past age and whose imminent return was feared. It was not until the Titanium scientists perfected their time machines that the truth began to emerge piece by piece: that the builders of the ruins belonged not to the stars but to Earth's own future, and that the dreaded confrontation was indeed shortly due - not with aliens, but in a form more horrifying, more calamitous, than anything imaginable... For Earth was to be the victim of an extraordinary cosmic accident. Time itself was about to collide! Mankind's leaders became even more fanatical, pressing on with new plans, determined at all costs to survive...
