QED is a play by American playwright Peter Parnell which chronicles (part of) a day in the life of Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman. It presents scenes from a day in Feynman's life, less than two years before his death, interweaving many strands from Feynman's biography, from the Manhattan project to the Challenger inquiry to more personal topics such as the death of Feynman's wife, and his own fight with cancer. The play, which grew out of a collaboration between Parnell, actor Alan Alda and director Gordon Davidson, premiered in 2001. The original production was performed first at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles and, from late 2001 to mid-2002, on Broadway, directed by Davidson and starring Alda as Feynman.

The QED certification is considered the 'Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval' for eBooks and enhanced eBooks. Digital Book World, the publishing industry authority on eBooks, developed the 13 point inspection that each eBook must pass to receive this seal. This seal signifies that the Fun eReader platform and eBook design is of a high quality and perfect for any type of device. The individual eBook 'Kali's Story: An Orphaned Polar Bear Rescue,' by Jennifer Keats Curtis and photography provided by John Gomes, was recognized with a bronze award for non-fiction in a new digital book awards program, Children's eBook Awards. This awards program recognizes excellence in eBooks for both content and design in many categories. This is the first year for the Children's eBook Awards which was started to celebrate the greatest accomplishments in the growing field of digital books. 'Kali's Story' is one of the 107 titles offered by Arbordale Publishing on the Fun eReader platform. The innovative design is built for children to read or listen to any book in either English or Spanish. Like the print versions, each eBook includes the Arbordale signature For Creative Minds section of fun facts and activities for children, parents and educators to dive deeper into the book's subject. The platform allows for easy access to the additional resources provided by Arbordale and with the Fun eReader app available on iTunes or Google play children can access their library from any device. For schools, the Fun eReader is available by subscription, and classroom teachers have ready-made teaching activities, quizzes and usage tracking within the platform.

The books have a 'cuddle factor' so that parents can comfortably read the books to children on their lap or at bedtime. Each book includes 3-6 pages of 'For Creative Minds' in the back of each book with easy-to-understand activities specifically designed so that parents and adults can become the 'teachers' even when they don't remember the underlying subject. The parents are given the tools they need to answer the 'why' questions. The activities are also designed to engage children and are so much more than a list of 'fun facts.' Activities may include matching, sequencing, and true/false questions to develop critical thinking skills. These activities make each book so much more than a picture book...the books become tools to get readers (the children and the adults in their lives) excited about the underlying subjects and to become a 'launch pad' for more discussions and learning.
