Olympia Author Ellen King Rice Launches New Thriller, EvoAngel

first_imgSubmitted by Ellen King RiceEllen King Rice’s new book, EvoAngel, is a thriller set in the Pacific Northwest.The foggy days of autumn are perfect for creepy thoughts about what might lurk in our wild woods. Olympia resident, Ellen King Rice, has been at work creating a “mushroom thriller” that explores potential changes in our DNA. Ellen’s book, The EvoAngel, is set in the Pacific Northwest and features two special fields of science: epigenetics and evolutionary development. Ellen says, “Both of these sciences will provide frequent news stories in the next decade as they reveal the power, adaptability and symbiosis of life on earth. My thriller connects climate changes to activation of existing segments in our DNA. The catalyst for activation may come from the fungi.”“I turned to modern technology to address the expense of launching a book. I created a Kickstarter campaign. It was fully funded in one week! I’d like others to know how useful Kickstarter can be to support publications and other creative works. My campaign runs until October 31 and can be seen here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/197523455/the-evoangel-an-environmental-thrillerPeople can still participate in this campaign if they would like to have an advance copy of The EvoAngel.“The Kickstarter campaign will give me the funds to have a professional book cover and professional book formatting. It will also pay for the printing of advance copies so I can begin promoting the book.There’s more information on the book and the sciences behind the story at Ellen’s website:  www.ellenkingrice.com Facebook19Tweet0Pin0last_img read more

Mutamba strike downs Equatorial Guinea

first_img0Shares0000Harambee Stars striker Piston Mutamba celebrates his goal against Equatorial Guinea during a friendly match in Machakos on May 28, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluMACHAKOS, Kenya, May 28- Frenchman Sebastien Migne earned his maiden win as Harambee Stars head coach as the team picked up a 1-0 win over Equatorial Guinea in their second friendly match in three days at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on Monday afternoon.Piston Mutamba scored the lone goal of the match in the 73rd minute as Stars made a response to their below par performance last Friday against Swaziland where they lost by a similar margin. Migne made four changes from the team that lost to the Swazis.Patrick Matasi started in goal ahead of Boniface Oluoch while Musa Mohammed took Mike Kibwage’s position at the heart of defense, playing alongside Joash Onyango.Also, Philemon Otieno moved into midfield with Albania based Kenneth Muguna playing behind Mutamba in attack who started ahead of Ovella Ochieng.The chances were few and far in between, but it was the visitors who threatened first in the 10th minute. Valeriano Nchama found some space inside the six yard box to race to a Nicolas Kata Senga corner, but keeper Matasi made a brilliant point blank save.Six minutes later on the other end, Kenya also had a chance from a set-piece when Joackins Atudo powered home a header off Francis Kahata’s corner after the keeper missed in an attempt to collect, but defender Frederico Ondo was at the right place to clear it off the line.Another setpiece provided Kenya’s second real chance of the game when Atudo headed the ball across the face of goal from a Duncan Otieno delivery, but Equatorial Guinea cleared. However, the ball went only as far as Kahata whose shot from the edge of the area went wide.Harambee Stars pair of Kenneth Muguna and Philemon Otieno attempt to fight for the ball with Equatorial Guinea’s Salvador Edu during a friendly match at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on May 28, 20`8. PHOTO/Raymond MakhayaBoth sides continued to size each other up as the game progressed but none provided as much threat in front of goal.Basilo Ndong and Salvador Edu were constant threats for the visitors with their pace on either wing, but they could not manufacture enough danger when it mattered most.In the second half, Migne started off by pulling out Muguna for Ovella Ochieng and the Kariobangi Sharks man went into duty immediately with his pace and trickery on the ball.He picked the ball up on the left, drifted away from his markers to the edge of the box but he took one heavy touch allowing the defense to clear.The Kariobangi Sharks’ man introduction sparked some life into Stars’ attack as he added in more pace, something that was lacking in the first half.His influence brought in the needed impact in the 73rd minute when he took on a daunting run on the right before delivering a low cross into the box that was tapped home by Mutamba.He came close again minutes later this time from a freekick on the right which went inches wide. Stars had to make a second change with Mohammed coming off injured and his place taken by Kibwage.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img
