B. Timothy Pennington Sheds Light on UFO Sightings in New Book

coverPennington

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Science, Skeptics and UFOS: A Reluctant Scientist Explores the World of UFOs” by B. Timothy Pennington

A retired scientist with nearly 40 years of experience as a chemist shares his perspective on UFO activity – including some he witnessed in the 1970s in central Mississippi – in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

A farm in central Mississippi might seem like an unlikely place for UFO activity, but that’s just what the author and his family saw in the 1970s. Decades later, author B. Timothy Pennington began to research what he and his family experienced now that he was retired and not afraid of what speculation might do to his career as a scientist. In this new book he shares his observations and conclusions about UFOs, including some history about the field of UFO study. He draws on personal recollections and interviews with family members to supplement his own research into the phenomenon.

“Science, Skeptics and UFOS: A Reluctant Scientist Explores the World of UFOs” adds a unique voice to those who have reported seeing an unidentified flying object. The author writes that he found six widely reported Mississippi UFO cases, most of which he had been unaware of previously. Of the four well known Mississippi cases that occurred in the 1970s, each shared some aspects of what his family experienced. And his family had plenty of experiences. Pennington writes that the ongoing sightings – almost 40 of them – took place over more than a decade, and most were within six miles of the family farm in Smith County, Mississippi. The sightings began in the mid-1930s when his paternal grandmother and her children saw a shaft of light 30 to 40 feet in diameter coming from the sky while on an evening walk. There was no conceivable source for the light as the area didn’t have electricity until after World War II and helicopters with spotlights were decades away. Since a sighting in the early1980s, there had been a lapse of over 25 years before the sightings resumed in 2011. The sightings ranged over a period of nearly 80 years and four generations after a spectacular set of sightings occurred in the summer of 2013.

In the 1970s, the author himself saw a silent white light in the sky repeatedly flying back and forth between two hovering lights. Other relatives were startled by a large object with bright lights noiselessly hovering over them as it blocked out the nighttime sky.  Family members saw numerous instances of a light at low altitude slowly crossing and lighting up a field, a flying saucer and series of lights at a community dump, a light that seemed to follow someone’s car, and there was even an account of an abduction. Pennington examines the scientific and skeptical points of view and freely explores alternative explanations for the sightings ranging from high-tech military aircraft to the tectonic strain theory as well as ball lightning, skyhook balloons, the auto-kinetic effect, and psychological causes. Charts, illustrations, and statistical analysis add up to one conclusion for Pennington:  Millions of people on our planet have witnessed UFO phenomena, which are real and unexplained, – and the phenomena continue unabated while most of the scientific establishment looks the other way when someone dares to say U-F-O.

Author B. Timothy Pennington, a member of the American Chemical Society for more than 35 years, has 21 U.S. patents as an inventor and co-inventor. He spent 30 years working in the chemical industry near Lake Charles, La., after teaching and writing scripts for chemistry videotapes as part of a National Science Foundation grant. Pennington has seven publications in scientific journals and two trade industry publications. He earned his Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Southern Mississippi and spent two years of postdoctoral research at the USDA Eastern Regional Research Center near Philadelphia and was a Robert A. Welsh postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Texas at Arlington before teaching at Navarro College. He and his wife, Esther, have three adult daughters and live in Sulphur, La.

New Cookbook Touts Benefits of Eating to Stay Healthy; Sharmila Patil Bhagirath Releases New Book

coverJogdand

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Tridoshik Recipes” by Shamila Patil Bhagirath.

Author Sharmila Patil Bhagirath bestows the fruits of her many years of research in Ayurvedic cooking upon readers interested in using food as a route to wellness of body and mind in this new book released by Dog Ear Publishing. Ayurveda, the ancient Indian science of longevity, uses the natural aspects of food as a way to heal.

Ayurveda is a venerable Indian tradition focusing on maintaining health and longevity using food as a medicine. Unlike many of today’s theories about health, this method of nutrition focuses not only on the nutrients contained within the food but the food’s digestibility and its post-digestion effect. In her new book, author Sharmila Patil Bhagirath explains the teachings of Ayurveda and the approach to food in addition to sharing many healthful, delicious recipes that will allow readers to maintain optimum health.

According to Ayurveda, All matter is made up of five elements (space, air, fire, water and earth). These elements are represented in the body as Vata (air & space), Pitta (fire & water) and Kapha (earth & water) which are called Tridoshas. Food also contains these five elements. Building on this connection, Ayurveda utilizes energies of the food to heal and balance the body. So if you have more water element in the body creating imbalance and disease, Ayurveda recommends using food that contains more fire element to restore this imbalance. This is the basic principle behind Ayurvedic cooking. Tridoshik recipes are the ones which balance all three doshas. Ayurveda identifies certain food, spices and cooking methods that are tridosha balancing. The tridoshik recipes contained in this book help restore and maintain this balance in the body, irrespective of one’s doshas.

Sharmila explains the different qualities of the doshas and shares the issues an imbalance can cause. After a thorough explanation of these different aspects, she dives into a huge variety of dishes that will tempt the palate of any reader.

Tridosik Recipes: The Food Alchemy provides a thoughtful approach to food that will allow readers to maintain perennial good health as they eat delicious meals. Providing recipes that are easy to follow and practical, the author makes healthful cooking reachable to even novice cooks.

Author Sharmila Patil Bhagirath, a freelance writer, hails from India, where she’s pursuing her second master’s degree from National Law School of India University in Bangalore, India. She has spent more than 15 years exploring the world of Ayurveda and shares the knowledge in this accessible collection of recipes.
