How do you end an alien occupation? Any way you can. An untested nano-weapon has rid the world of its alien oppressors, but humanity's jubilation is short lived. Now, facing a one-two punch of alien retaliation from orbit and an out-of-control and rapidly evolving nano-weapon that sees all life on Earth as food, humanity's last hope for survival resides with the terminally-ill and possibly insane CEO of the world's largest mega-corporation, a small group of surviving aliens who want only to get off the planet before they're eaten, and a pair of cybernetically-enhanced human collaborators more interested in looting than saving the world. Any way you look at it, humanity is doomed.

Spill is a mystery about a town in Maryland. It was a nice place to live until the Churchills moved there. George and Helen Churchill adopted a little boy named Bobby. Bobby was different from the other children. Bobby´s parents were shot to death, and he went to a group home until the Churchills adopted him. He was quiet and very slim in size. The glasses didn´t help his appearance at all. The kids at school would talk about him and also made jokes about him. Sometimes Bobby would laugh right along with them so that the hurt wouldn´t show on his face. But at eighteen, Bobby grew up to a handsome young man. He used contacts instead of glasses and put on weight. But he was still weird to most. If you like a good mystery, this is the book for you. It will have you in suspense the whole time. There were four killings in the town, and nobody knew who the killer was. Can you guess the killer before you get to the last page? Read and guess who did it, and enjoy!
On April 22-23, 1988, approximately 432,000 gallons of San Joaquin Valley crude oil spilled from an aboveground storage tank at a Shell Oil Company refinery into the surrounding environment, including the northern reaches of San Francisco Bay (the Martinez spill). Pursuant to the settlement of the resulting litigation (United States/California v. Shell Oil Co., No. C89-4220, (N.D. Cal1990)), Shell Oil Company provided funding for, among other things, studies to improve future response strategies to oil spills and ensure better restoration of resources and services affected by such spills. The California Oil Spill Contingent Valuation Study was one of the studies funded by the settlement. The purpose of the California Oil Spill (COS) Contingent Valuation (CV) Study was ´´to execute and document a contingent valuation study of natural resource damages associated with offshore, coastal, or estuarine oil spills in California´´ (State of California, Department of Justice, Contract Number 89-2126). The COS CV study developed an estimate of per household ex ante economic value for a program to prevent a specified set of natural resource injuries to those species of birds and intertidal life that are consistently affected by oil spills along California´s Central Coast. The principal investigators on the COS study team were Richard T. Carson of the University of California, San Diego, and W. Michael Hanemann of the University of California, Berkeley. The study´s project manager was Kerry M.
