    Anxiety Disorders
    By: Cherry Pedrick, R.N., Bruce M. Hyman, Ph. D.
    Millions of Americans—more than 16 percent of teens and adults—live with some type of anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a group of disorders that include panic disorder, agoraphobia, general anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder, among others. Once viewed as "worrywarts," people with anxiety disorders are now taken seriously. According to recent studies quoted in USA TODAY, The Nation's No.1 Newspaper, anxiety disorders can lead to "higher blood pressure and heart rates, less effective immune systems, surges of stress hormones that strain the heart, more depression, and perhaps even shorter life spans."

    In this book, you will read case studies of people living with anxiety disorders and how they handle their conditions. You'll learn about the causes, symptoms, and diagnosis of anxiety disorders and will discover coping strategies and treatments. These facts will give you the information you need to recognize and understand anxiety disorders and to reach out for help. Identifying anxiety disorders in yourself, a friend, or a family member is the first step toward effectively managing your condition.

    Pompeii
    By: Liz Sonneborn
    An ancient city unearthed… In the 1730s, Charles of Bourbon, king of the area around present-day Naples, Italy, learned that local peasants were finding marble and other ancient objects when they dug their wells. He sent army colonel Rocque Joachin Alcubierre and later Karl Jacob Weber to explore the area. Working in darkness with only torches to light their way, Alcubierre’s and Weber’s crews of workers tunneled through hardened mud. The crews found a marble statue on the very first day. Soon they discovered an ancient Roman theater filled with marble and bronze statues. Later, the crew moved south, where digging was above ground, and they began to uncover the ancient city of Pompeii. This once-vibrant Roman city had been completely buried in lava and ash when the volcano Mount Vesuvius erupted in A.D. 79. By unearthing this ancient city, Weber spurred interested not only in artifacts, but in how the ancient people lived. By the early nineteenth century, Pompeii was a busy tourist attraction and the once-buried city lived again.

    Seven Billion and Counting
    The Crisis in Global Population Growth
    By: Michael M. Andregg
    October 31, 2011, marked an uneasy milestone for Planet Earth. On this day, the global population surpassed seven billion. What does that mean for a world that, until the nineteenth century, was home to less than one billion people? Experts say it means the planet is in trouble. Some wonder if Earth will even be able to sustain human life at its current rate of growth.

    Will there be enough food for everyone? Will conflicts over land increase? How will the environment be affected? Can humanity survive the predicted disasters?

    More than a simple case of running out of space, the population crisis is interwoven with a host of other issues—from climate change and resource management to war, disease, and poverty. Discover how all these factors converge to place an entire planet in crisis mode—and explore what sort of responses that crisis may require.

    3D Printing
    The Revolution in Personalized Manufacturing
    By: Melissa Koch
    3D printing was once only known through science fiction, such as Star Trek, the popular 1960s TV series. But inventors and engineers on Earth began experimenting in real life with 3D printing to find faster ways to develop and build prototypes, using computers, ultraviolet lasers, and printable materials. Now, there are many innovative uses for 3D printing. Yet 3D printing has drawbacks. Chemicals used in 3D printing can be toxic, and legal experts are not sure how to protect 3D printing inventions so that others do not steal ideas. Learn how 3D printing works and how we can keep up with the safety, health, and legal challenges that lie ahead.

    Artificial Intelligence
    Building Smarter Machines
    By: Stephanie Sammartino McPherson
    In 2011 a computer named Watson outscored two human competitors on the TV quiz show Jeopardy! and snagged the million-dollar prize. Watson isn't the only machine keeping up with humans. The field of artificial intelligence (AI) is booming, with drones, robots, and computers handling tasks that once only humans could perform.

    Such advances raise challenging questions. Do Watson and other computers really think? Can machines acquire self-awareness? Is AI a promising or a dangerous technology? No machine, not even Watson, yet comes close to matching human intelligence, but many scientists believe it is only a matter of time before we reach this milestone. What will such a future look like?

    Black Holes
    The Weird Science of the Most Mysterious Objects in the Universe
    By: Sara Latta
    In 2015 two powerful telescopes detected something physicists had been seeking for more than one hundred years—gravitational waves from the collision of two black holes. This announcement thrilled the scientific community. Since the eighteenth century, astronomers have predicted the existence of massive, invisible stars whose gravity would not let anything—even light—escape. In the twenty-first century, sophisticated technologies are bringing us closer to seeing black holes in action. Meet the scientists who first thought of black holes hundreds of years ago, and learn about contemporary astrophysicists whose work is radically shaping how we understand black holes, our universe, and how it originated.

    Geoengineering Earth's Climate
    Resetting the Thermostat
    By: Jennifer Swanson
    Most scientists agree that Earth is warming rapidly. Glaciers are melting and rising seawaters are submerging islands and coastal cities. In the coming decades, millions will likely have to escape extreme weather caused by climate change.

    Some scientists say we need to act faster and with radical new technologies—now—to save our planet. They propose geoengineering, or "engineering Earth," to reset our global thermostat. Ideas include thickening clouds with chemicals to reduce the amount of sunlight and pulling carbon dioxide from the air with machines. However, critics say that geoengineering could backfire and create even worse weather. Is geoengineering too risky? Or is it our best hope of survival?

    Presidential Races (Revised Edition)
    Campaigning for the White House
    By: Arlene Morris-Lipsman
    American presidents have come from all walks of life. Some have had a lot of experience campaigning for office, while others have had almost none. In fact, the nation's first president—George Washington—didn't even run for office. He was chosen by a group of electors in 1789. More than 200 years later, campaigning for the United States' highest office takes years to plan, years to carry out, and a lot of money. Candidates must be prepared to rally supporters at live events across the nation, give hundreds of interviews and speeches, and create sophisticated communication strategies. No longer can candidates simply let their records speak for themselves. They must engage their competition—and the American voter—in vigorous debate 24/7, using robust advertising, strategic appearances, and social media messaging.

    Follow the changes in presidential campaign strategies from the nation's early leaders to twenty-first century contenders. Meet the personalities that have defined the office, from George Washington to Barack Obama, the nation's first African American president. Learn how strategies to pick candidates, raise money, run campaigns, sway voters, and elect leaders have evolved. And see if you can predict what lies ahead for Americans in upcoming presidential elections.

    Queen Latifah
    From Jersey Girl to Superstar
    By: Amy Ruth Allen
    People who knew Queen Latifah as a kid in Newark, New Jersey, would never have guessed at the fame in her future. But Latifah always dreamed big. Her dreams—and hard work—paid off. While still a teenager, Latifah became the first female solo rapper to sign with a major label and earn widespread popularity. She crafted a unique style full of positive messages, completely changing the rap landscape.

    That was just the beginning. Since 1989 Queen Latifah has made eight albums and thirty movies, starred in a top TV sitcom, hosted a talk show, launched business and charitable ventures, and won several prestigious awards.

    As USA TODAY, the Nation's No. 1 Newspaper, reports, it's ordinary people who inspire Queen Latifah: "[A stranger once] told me how much I meant to her and to women of color, and women in general. When I hear that, I know that I'm doing the right thing." What's next for Latifah? The world will be watching, eager to find out.
