The arrival of the WWII B-17 bomber at the National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force in January of 2009 ini-tiated a great adventure for a group of warbird lovers from the nearby commu-nities as they united to restore that B-17. The dream of the volunteers was to honor the WWII veterans of the Eighth Air Force - some of whom were literally their fathers - by restoring the B-17 to its original pristine condition. The group was challenged by the fact that the airplane had been in storage for more than two decades following a long working life, and was far from the gleaming symbol of power that it had been in 1945. This book is the story of the six year effort by a team of volunteers to over-come the challenges they faced and to fulfill their dream to create a lasting sym-bol to honor their fathers and grandfa-thers and all of the veterans who served in the Mighty Eighth during WWII.

Shultz, Jim Hoagland, and James Timbie present views from some of the country's top experts in the sciences, humanities, and military that scrutinize the rise of post-millennium technologies in today's global society. They contemplate both the benefits and peril carried by the unprecedented speed of these innovationsfrom genetic editing, which enables us new ways to control infectious diseases, to social media, whose ubiquitous global connections threaten the function of democracies across the world. Some techniques, like the advent of machine learning, have enabled engineers to create systems that will make us more productive. For example, self-driving vehicles promise to make trucking safer, faster, and cheaper. However, using big data and artificial intelligence to automate complex tasks also ends up threatening to disrupt both routine professions like taxi driving and cognitive work by accountants, radiologists, lawyers, and even computer programmers themselves.

Updated 12/3/14 - Come by Becca Jameson has been awarded the CTRR award by the reviewers at Coffee Time Romance. The writing of Ms. Jameson is simply fabulous and that is not even saying enough. I fell in love with all the characters and I have already scoped out the rest of the books in the series. I love all the big, bad, dom, MMA fighters who permeate the pages of Come. I want to warn all readers do not let the slow build up to the actual sexual acts deter you because when Kay and Rafe truly come together the first time, the collision is as satisfying for the reader as it was for the characters.
