As the authority that the biggest names in the business, including John Paulson, David Tepper, and Bill Ackman, go to before breaking major news, Ahuja has access to the innermost workings of the hedge fund industry.

ABDUCTED BY ALIENS, FORCED INTO BONDAGE... Only a few years earlier, Rose Rico of Earth had no idea that her planet's government was secretly selling human beings to the alien Alphas in exchange for advanced alien technology. Then Rose found herself, along with hundreds of other human captives, bound for the far reaches of space, and compelled to cater to the depraved desires of her new alien masters. Rose broke her chains, freed some of her fellow captives and stole a spaceship of her own. Now they are wanted fugitives, and the galaxy is heating up for Rose and for her renegade band of former pleasure slaves. As her companions flee from the Alphas, Rose plots a one-woman strike against her former masters. Recaptured, tortured, and once again forced to serve as a pleasure slave, Rose escapes to rejoin her crew and battle the Alphas -- to free Earth from their domination!

When you are talking about powerful men who have the ability to command attention and respect out of everyone in any room he walks in to, you are talking about the powers of an alpha male. This man is in the top of the social hierarchy, which entitles them to more power, higher earning potential, and a wider selection of possible mates. There are some men who resort to tactics that are used by wild animals to get what they want. These men will use their physical prowess to intimidate their opponent in order to get them to back down.

The Alpha Parchments is a new translation of the first five books of the Holy Bible, also referred to as The Torah. This work represents over 30 years of studying and comparing Bible translations but uses a new approach to making the Bible both very readable and accurate to the original Hebrew at the same time. The King James Version and Young’s Literal Translation have been employed as the "base text". For many this version will retain much of the literary style of those time honored works but all archaic language has been replaced with modern English. More importantly however, this version endeavors to be extremely accurate to the Hebrew definitions that comprise the original text. As a result new discoveries and a greater detail to the Biblical story has now been obtained. [author bio]Dallas James was born in 1950 in Sacramento, California and has lived most of his life in Seattle, Washington. He is a Christian who has spent over thirty years studying and comparing Bible translations.
