Between the blue sky above us and the infinite blackness of space lies a frontier that scientists have only just begun to investigate. In At the Edge of Space, NOVA takes viewers on a spectacular exploration of the earth-space boundary zone that's home to some of nature's most puzzling and alluring phenomena: the shimmering aurora, streaking meteors, and fleeting flashes that shoot upwards from thunderclouds, known as sprites. Only discovered in 1989, sprites have eluded capture because they flicker into existence for a mere split-second–forty times faster than an eye blink. NOVA rides with scientists in a high-flying weather observation plane as they hunt for sprites and finally succeed in snaring them in 3D video, gaining vital clues to unraveling their mystery. Combining advanced video technology with stunning sequences shot from the International Space Station, At the Edge of Space probes the enigmas of the boundary zone and brings viewers an intriguing new viewpoint on their planet.

This 13th volume of Advances in Neurosurgery presents thos.e papers held at the 35th Annual Meeting of the German Society of Neurosurgery in Hannover, June 13-16, 1984. Of 150 papers submitted, the program committee of the Society chose 69 for presentation. I would like to thank Professors Bock, Brock, Jensen, Wenker, and Wlillenweber for their assistance in the selection.
It was the intention of the President of the Congress at this meeting to lay special scientific emphasis on discussion. For this reason the number of papers had to be limited even more than usual in order to give all participants the opportunity for questions and the presentation of their own experience.

From the national bestselling author of ''Racing Weight'', Matt Fitzgerald exposes the irrationality, halftruths, and downright impossibility of a ''single right way'' to eat and reveals how to develop rational, healthy eating habits. From ''the FourHour Body'' to ''Atkins,'' there are diet cults to match seemingly any mood and personality type. Everywhere we turn, someone is preaching the ''one true way'' to eat for maximum health. 'Paleo Diet' advocates tell us that all foods less than twelve thousand years old are the enemy. Lowcarb gurus demonize carbs, and then there are the lowfat prophets. But they agree on one thing: there is only one true way to eat for maximum health.
