Science s Most Wanted Summary : Science and technology have had more than their share of the good, the bad, and the bogus. Alfred William Lawson, the designer of the first airliner, believed that two types of creatures lived within the brain Menorgs, A which were the mental organizers responsible for all good things, and Disorgs, A which infect all cells with disorganization. Chonosuke Okamura collected and catalogued what he thought were tiny men and animals, all 1/100-inch long, which most geologists think are actually mineral grains.

Physician John Brinkley believed that consuming goat glands would restore youth and virility.

The FBI s Most Wanted Summary : The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is a national agency dedicated to investigating federal crimes. Founded as a small team of special agents on July 26, 1908, the Bureau was first charged with enforcing the growing body of federal laws covering the United States as a whole. Almost from the beginning of its 100-year history, the Bureau has been the subject of legend and controversy. It has also evolved into a vast and sophisticated national law-enforcement agency. Whether as a federal crime-fighting force or a source of investigative support to local and state police forces, the modern FBI strives to embody its ideals of fidelity, bravery, and integrity. In 1952, a young man told the police where he thought they could find the notorious bank robber Willie Sutton. Sutton was on the FBI's Ten Most wanted Fugitives list, and the young man had recognized him from an FBI bulletin. This book tells the story of some of the FBI's most dramatic cases-and how ordinary citizens have often helped agents pursue and catch their quarry. From Wanted posters to TV's America's Most Wanted, the FBI has used publicity to make it harder for criminals to hide and easier for authorities to find them.

Celebrities Most Wanted Summary : Team Aniston or Team Jolie? Whether you have admittedly chosen a side, chances are you know the feud these slogans reference and perhaps even remember where you were when news of the Aniston-Pitt split broke. Over the past three decades, buzz over the rich and famous has exploded, thanks in part to refined technology, well-oiled media outlets, and a dedicated few who have greased up their own laptops to challenge the tabloid giants (think Perez Hilton). Much to their chagrin, or so they say, celebrities have become all the rage, lending to their adoring, or simply inquisitive, public not only a glamorous escapism but also the reality that even megastars suffer fault. Marjorie Hallenbeck-Huber fills you in on the juiciest bits to hit the celebrity gossip circuit over the past three decades. Read about the most bizarre hookups (Lance Armstrong and an Olsen twin, anyone?); marriages that lasted a Hollywood second, or fifty-five hours in the case of Britney Spears; celebrity baby names, like Heavenly Hiranni Tiger Lily, that even the creative teams at Crayola could not dream up; diet tricks and training regimens that guarantee a camera-ready body; “it” travel destinations where celebs go to laze under the sun—or to do good; and infamous crack-ups that surely sent publicists into a damage-control frenzy. Did we forget to mention sex tapes? Celebrities’ Most Wanted™ grants you access to the fascinating world of the rich and famous, where Red Carpet is a season, Fiji is more than a bottle of water, and saving the world is not such a far-off possibility.
