Galaxies are not uniformly distributed in space. On large scales the Universe displays coherent structure, with galaxies residing in groups and clusters, which lie at the intersections of long filaments of galaxies. Vast regions of relatively empty space, known as voids, contain very few galaxies and span the volume in between these structures.

We review sources of cosmic rays, their composition and spectra as well as their propagation in the galactic and extragalactic magnetic fields, both regular and fluctuating. A special attention is paid to the recent results of the observations.

The cosmological gamma-ray burst phenomenon is reviewed. The broad observational facts and empirical relations of the GRB prompt emission and afterglow are outlined. A well-tested fireball shock model is introduced in a pedagogical manner.

The main purpose of this volume is to reproduce and make available for study, the larger and more interesting nebulae and clusters, sixty-eight in number. James Edward Keeler was the director of the Lick observatory 1898 - 1900.

The light distribution in the disks of many galaxies is non-axisymmetric or 'lopsided' with a spatial extent larger along one half of a galaxy than the other. In this review, the observations to measure the lopsided distribution will be discussed.
