LEVI McPHERSON, a graduate student of analytical chemistry at the University of North Central Florida, is approached by agents of the Homeland Security’s Counter-terrorism Unit. The agency is recruiting Lee to study and expose the loopholes of screening instruments in airports. Struggling financially, he accepted the offer, making him a paid, benevolent hacker of the nation’s gateway. Yet Levi is horrified when an Airbus from Los Angeles disintegrated in mid-air.

At 40, when everybody’s career trajectory is going up, Levi’s still a poor graduate student, struggling financially. His research projects however, are worth million dollars. Researching the highly classified and heavily guarded secrets of detecting traces of explosives, what Lee know was a goldmine. The agency's offer is his financial break . So Levi tackles the problem like a scientist, detailing the loopholes of the aviation security and turning what he knew into a big time money machine.

JIM and JONATHAN of the counter-terrorism unit, where nowhere to be found after Charlotte International Airport, a hub of Delta Airlines closed abruptly because of instrument malfunctions in their security lines. And in a post-Osama Bin Laden’s era, the biggest blow to the United Stated after the 9/11 disaster comes unexpectedly when a passenger plane blew up in the skies of Washington D.C., in the heart of the nation.

Levi knew it was only the start of more troubles, so he recruits his fellow graduate students to counter the future attacks. They have to think like criminals—and scientists too. With the help of FBI counter-terrorism experts, Homeland Security and Transportation Security Agency, the team races to close and plug the loopholes Lee identified.

Manny Pacquiao

My foot hurt last week and went to the infirmary. As I was waiting for the Physician, I read a "forwarded email" type description of our school's mighty quarterback Tim Tebow. I adapted it for Manny.

What color is Manny Pacquiao's blood? It is a trick question, the Pacman doesn't bleed.

Pacquiao's tears can cure cancer ---but he's never cried

The primary ingredient of Red Bull is Manny Pacquiao's sweat

Omega pain killer too weak for Pacman, he goes underneath the magma of the earth

Life doesn't give Manny Pacquiao lemons, life ask what fruit Pacman wants

Manny Pacquiao doesn't bowl strike. He just hit one pin and the others faint

When Manny Pacquiao does a push up, he's actually pushing the earth down and not pushing himself up.

Some people wears superman pajama, superman wears Pacquiao's pajama

There are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, Manny leaves in the Philippines
