Nadel was born in Bronx, NY, the son of a Hungarian immigrant father who
was a master tool & die maker who helped give birth to the modern
automobile. Bob followed his father into the tool-and-die trade.
He educated himself by taking night courses as CCNY, NYU, Brown
University, and Rappahannak College in Virginia. Among his many
professional accomplishments, he made the first prototype zoom lens,
worked on early radar plumbing for the US Air Force, and
manufactured umbilical cord junction boxes for the National Aerodynamics
and Space Administration. He also patented a variety of high speed
metal component production and assembly methods.
Recently, he went into research and development.
His latest invention, intended to assist doctors during cataract surgery,
is an automatic lens furler and injector. It injects a sterile lens
into the eye through an incision so tiny that not one stitch is required
to close it. Bob comes by his inventiveness naturally. He had
the honor of exchanging letters with Albert Einstein shortly before his
death. The subject of the correspondence was an alternative to a
rocket propulsion system that uses gyroscopic precession. It would
be, in effect, a working flying saucer, and was sufficiently complicated
that Bob has yet to build a prototype. However, he is thinking
about it ...

Eray Oge is a retired physician who now has the luxury of directing
his attention to his lifelong ambition ‘writing’. He has endless time
on his hands and a wealth of resources to pull from. After all, he has
spent his lifetime understanding ‘Man’ in body and soul. He chooses his
subjects from medical undertakings that have fallen through the cracks.
The average person is not aware of their importance in our lives. He
tries to bring them to the limelight, wrapped in an entertaining story
line. Most of his works are based on medical research and hypotheses.
Some are controversial, even politically incorrect.

"This Shining Sea" is his first published
science fiction novel. "This Shining Sea" asks 'what is
the price of power?' What does power avail you if you don't know where you
are, don't know who is friend or foe, don't know who are your real
opponents? 'Stand Up for Liberty!' is a book on political
*strategy*. It's not about *philosophy* --- 'what we should do if we
win elections'. It's not a book on *tactics* --- 'how to press the
flesh and win your election'. It's about *strategy* -- 'how to
change the Libertarian Party into a party that wins election after
election, year after year after year'.

University in the Ukraine where he double-majored in Applied Physics and
Environmental and Materials Testing. After graduation, Abram
worked in various scientific organizations. During his tenure, he
conducted his own original research, and as a result, made over
100 inventions and solved problems in a diverse range of fields: from
measuring the density of soils on the Moon and on the bottom of the
ocean using nuclear methods, formulating technology to lay pipeline
without the presence of people in the trench, to modeling nuclear
processes using soap bubbles, and even … designing combs for eyelashes.
The findings of his research were published in more than 80 articles in
international and national journals and reported at international and
national conferences throughout the USA and Europe. Following this
extensive research and inventing experience, Abram Teplitskiy earned a
Ph.D. in Applied Physics.
