Movie star Alan Ladd played Dan Holiday, a former newspaperman turned mystery novelist and adventurer. To gain ideas for his books, Holiday placed an ad in the Star-Times newspaper: "Adventure wanted - will go anywhere, do anything - write Box 13, Star-Times." It wasn't long before his post office box became jammed with adventure offers galore. The stories follow his escapades when he responds to the letters. Holiday always had more adventure than he had originally sought, because those who responded to his ad never revealed all of their glorious, unusual, and sometimes sinister details until they met in person and the adventure had already begun. Holiday's scatterbrained secretary, Suzy, played by Sylvia Picker, added touches of humor to this mystery-adventure and its nail-biting story lines. Box 13 was produced by Mayfair Productions, a company run by Alan Ladd and Richard Sandville. In addition to producing Box 13, Ladd also wrote some of the scripts. Included are these 12 exciting episodes: "Hot Box" (26 Dec. 1948), "The Better Man" (2 Jan. 1949), "The Professor and the Puzzle" (9 Jan. 1949), "The Dowager and Dan Holiday" (16 Jan. 1949), "Three to Die" (23 Jan. 1949), "The Philanthropist" (30 Jan. 1949), "Last Will and Nursery Rhyme" (6 Feb. 1949), "Delinquent Dilemma" (13 Feb. 1949), "One One Three Point Five" (20 Mar. 1949), "Dan and the Wonderful Lamp" (27 Mar. 1949), "Tempest in a Casserole" (3 Apr. 1949), and "Mexican Maze" (10 Apr. 1949). 1.

Thomson's Lamp

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Thomson's lamp is a puzzle that is a variation on Zeno's paradoxes. It was devised by philosopher James F. Thomson, who also coined the term supertask. Consider a lamp with a toggle switch. Flicking the switch once turns the lamp on. Another flick will turn the lamp off. Now suppose a being able to perform the following task: starting a timer, he turns the lamp on. At the end of one minute, he turns it off. At the end of another half minute, he turns it on again. At the end of another quarter of a minute, he turns it off. At the next eighth of a minute, he turns it on again, and he continues thus, flicking the switch each time after waiting exactly one-half the time he waited before flicking it previously. The sum of all these progressively smaller times is exactly two minutes.

When a young nurse dies on her watch, Florence Nightingale must uncover the deep-hidden secrets someone will kill to keep buried. It is 1853. Lady of the Lamp Florence Nightingale has just accepted the position of Superintendent of the Establishment for Gentlewomen During Temporary Illness in London. She has hardly had time to learn the names of the nurses in her charge when she suddenly finds one of them hanging in the Establishment's library. Her name was Nurse Bellamy. Florence's mettle is tested by the dual goals of preserving what little reputation her hospital has and bringing Nurse Bellamy's killer to justice. Her efforts are met with upturned noses and wayward glances except for her close friend and advocate inside the House of Commons, Sidney Herbert. As Florence digs deeper, however, her attention turns to one of the hospital investors and suddenly, Sidney becomes reluctant to help. With no one but herself to count on, Florence must now puzzle out what the death of an unknown, nondescript young nurse has to do with conspiracies lurking about at the highest levels of government before she's silenced too. For fans of Anne Perry and Laurie R. King comes No Cure for the Dead, the rich and enthralling series debut from Christine Trent.
