Alan Turing: A Life From Beginning to End (World War 2 Biographies Book 7) by Hourly History 4.4 Stars (83 Reviews)    Price verified 11 hours ago

Discover the remarkable life of Alan Turing... Free BONUS Inside! Alan Turing had a radical and ingenious mind. He is considered one of the fathers of artificial intelligence, and his theories on this matter range from purely mechanical to almost spiritual. During World War II, his decryption of the Nazis' Enigma codes proved vital for the Allied victory over the Axis powers. Turing's fingerprints are everywhere, and yet his own country for quite some time failed to acknowledge it. It wasn't until 2009 that the then prime minister of the United Kingdom, Gordon Brown, issued an official, posthumous apology to Alan Turing for "the appalling way he was treated." To many, this was an admission that was far too long in coming. As the chronicling of this book demonstrates, Alan Turing's life was by no means easy; there were hardships, trials, and tribulations that would shake him to his core. But despite the tragic way his life ended by way of a poison apple, the spark ignited by Alan ...

Safety Sucks!: The Bull $H!# in the Safety Profession They Don’t Tell You About. by Samuel Goodman 4.7 Stars (18 Reviews)    Price verified 11 hours ago

"A thorough and needed rebuke of the modern safety profession." - Anonymous Change is hard, I get it. But, we move beyond bad ideas by introducing better ideas. I truly believe that by continuing to have these "hard" conversations in an upfront, honest and fun way, we cultivate betterment. The safety profession has been stagnant for far too long. Safety folks are abused and misused, they're often underpaid and overworked, they are undervalued and not appreciated, they find themselves being blamed and shamed when accidents occur, they are torn between the frontline and management, they have been forced to knowingly promote flawed, ineffective and disproven safety management systems - to preach from a bible in which they do not believe, and its time for all of that to change.

Numerical Calculus: Differentiation and Integration by D. James Benton 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 11 hours ago

Before the advent of sophisticated programs capable of performing calculus symbolically, numerical differentiation and integration provided a means of solving seemingly intractable equations. Numerical methods can still be an efficient means of solving many such problems, but the real advantage of Numerical Calculus will always be in solving those problems that have no closed-form solution -- and these are legion. This book is filled with practical examples, code, and spreadsheets. I trust you will find it useful. I assume that you already have a command of analytical calculus and so I will jump right in to the numerical.

QUANTUM PHYSICS FOR BEGINNERS: A Simple Guide for Discovering the Hidden Side of Reality. Master the Theory of Relativity and the Mechanics of ... by James Fradkov 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 15 hours ago

"EVERYTHING IS ENERGY": THE MYSTERIOUS REASONS WHY ONLY 0.0001% OF HUMANS REALLY UNDERSTAND THIS PRINCIPLE, AND HOW APPLYING IT EVERY DAY IN YOUR LIFE WILL LET YOU GET EVERYTHING YOU DESIRE... In today's society, it is increasingly on the agenda to reason by stereotypes. The continuous distractions and surplus of information are leading us to an increasingly elusive and superficial perception of the world. Only a few discerning people are engaged in a careful and in-depth analysis of reality. "Things are not always as they seem", says the famous Gibran, and quantum physics unquestionably sanctions the truth of this famous thought. Einstein, Planck, Heisenberg and Bohr (just to mention the most famous) were courageous visionaries, careful observers who did not stop at appearances and what the world of conventions proposed to them as absolute realities. This value was reciprocated with a revolutionary conception of life, which in some cases, for the weakest of hearts, led to ...

Diary of a Fire: The Station Fire Threat to Mount Wilson Observatory by Harold A. McAlister 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 11 hours ago

DIARY OF A FIRE: The Station Fire, the largest fire in the history of Los Angeles County, threatened historic Mount Wilson Observatory from 26 August until 25 September 2009. Initial predictions were that the fire would sweep the Observatory grounds, obliterating the site where Edwin Hubble revealed a vast and expanding Universe in the 1920s. From 29 August 2009 and into February 2010, Mount Wilson Observatory Director Hal McAlister kept an on-line blog describing the effort to save the observatory by hundreds of firefighters and a core group of Mount Wilson staff. His blog documented a roller coaster ride of alternating despair and optimism during the fire crisis followed by a long aftermath of mud slides and road closures that affected Mount Wilson's operations for more than a year after the fire was started by an as yet unknown arsonist. The blog, which received more than 320,000 hits during the fire, is being published in this book as a diary with entries arranged in ...

Science and Spirituality have been opposing forces for some time now. It has not always been this way. Both important fields in their own right, which influence our lives, are starting to realign again. In this book we look at what we scientifically know about our solar system and the planets within it. This book is part scientific and part psychically channelled.

ZERO to ONE: Making Our Way Toward a Conscious Civilization by Bruce 'Zen' Benefiel 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 11 hours ago

You might think this is going to be about computer code, the binary system of ones and zeros, and how technology is going to help manage our planetary civilization. In a sense you'd be right, but not in the way you might think. In another sense, and perhaps quite literally, the internet is an interface into such a system that is driven by both emotion and logic, with the capability to engage people, places and things for various purposes. There is another binary connection that, through the choice of 'yes' or 'no,' molds our reality on a moment to moment basis. It, too, is an emotion and logic driven system. The two are nearly inseparable and often in conflict. We ask questions and ponder paths, imagining possibilities for creating a sustainable world. Current quantum theory indicates we have more capacity for becoming self-aware and managing our reality better; individually influencing a collective consciousness. On the theme of destiny or fate, or even just making better ...

The structure that supports the Universe is the Unicum: a unique phenomenon that reveals itself only once and in different forms, codified in the four Fundamental Laws of Nature, among which electromagnetism is the most meaningful expression for the living and the most qualifying one for our species. The Universe, which we are part of, is ruled by the uniqueness of its phenomena, for no event can repeat itself into other events, but only in its own uniqueness. Everyone is unique and different from other types of uniqueness. Different uniquenesses (cells) create an individual, who is, therefore, the product of various and different cellular uniquenesses that are mutually connected. Different individuals who have a unique protein structure give birth to a species that, as the product of protein uniquenesses, is unique itself. For this reason, its original uniqueness does not allow it to evolve into a different species. Reality is integrated in a conventional Time-Space dimension, which ...

Environmental crisis is for real and it's coming around faster than you think. It's not a brainchild of some conspiracy theorist but a tangible, perceivable fact, proven by the catastrophic events all over the world. But for most of us, caught up in the daily grind, it's hardly a subject worth pondering over.

But the scientific fraternity and many political leaders don't think so. They are waking up to the horrors of global warming and climatic change. Hectic efforts are on to contain the damage but with very little success. This book provides a simple solution to this grave crisis which has the potential to wipe out life altogether.

A History of Force Feeding: Hunger Strikes, Prisons and Medical Ethics, 1909–1974 by Ian Miller (Palgrave Macmillan) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 15 hours ago

This book is Open Access under a CC BY license. It is the first monograph-length study of the force-feeding of hunger strikers in English, Irish and Northern Irish prisons. It examines ethical debates that arose throughout the twentieth century when governments authorised the force-feeding of imprisoned suffragettes, Irish republicans and convict prisoners. It also explores the fraught role of prison doctors called upon to perform the procedure. Since the Home Office first authorised force-feeding in 1909, a number of questions have been raised about the procedure. Is force-feeding safe? Can it kill? Are doctors who feed prisoners against their will abandoning the medical ethical norms of their profession? And do state bodies use prison doctors to help tackle political dissidence at times of political crisis?

Differential Undercounts in the U.S. Census: Who is Missed? (SpringerBriefs in Population Studies) by William P. O’Hare (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 11 hours ago

This open access book describes the differences in US census coverage, also referred to as "differential undercount", by showing which groups have the highest net undercounts and which groups have the greatest undercount differentials, and discusses why such undercounts occur. In addition to focusing on measuring census coverage for several demographic characteristics, including age, gender, race, Hispanic origin status, and tenure, it also considers several of the main hard-to-count populations, such as immigrants, the homeless, the LBGT community, children in foster care, and the disabled. However, given the dearth of accurate undercount data for these groups, they are covered less comprehensively than those demographic groups for which there is reliable undercount data from the Census Bureau. This book is of interest to demographers, statisticians, survey methodologists, and all those interested in census coverage.

Biofuels and Sustainability: Holistic Perspectives for Policy-making (Science for Sustainable Societies) by Kazuhiko Takeuchi (Springer) 3.5 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 15 hours ago

This open access book presents a comprehensive analysis of biofuel use strategies from an interdisciplinary perspective using sustainability science. This interdisciplinary perspective (social science-natural science) means that the strategies and policy options proposed will have significant impacts on the economy and society alike. Biofuels are expected to contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, revitalizing economies in agricultural communities and alleviating poverty. However, despite these anticipated benefits, international organizations such as the FAO, OECD and UN have published reports expressing concerns that biofuel promotion may lead to deforestation, water pollution and water shortages. The impacts of biofuel use are extensive, cross-sectoral and complex, and as such, comprehensive analyses are required in order to assess the extent to which biofuels can contribute to sustainable societies. Applying interdisciplinary sustainability science concepts and ...

Charles Peirce's Theory of Scientific Method (American Philosophy Book 7) by Francis E. Reilly (Fordham University Press) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 11 hours ago

This book is an attempt to understand a significant part of the complex thought of Charles Sanders Peirce, especially in those areas which interested him most: scientific method and related philosophical questions. It is organized primarily from Peirce's own writings, taking chronological settings into account where appropriate, and pointing out the close connections of several major themes in Peirce's work which show the rich diversity of his thought and its systematic unity. Following an introductory sketch of Peirce the thinking and writer is a study of the spirit and phases of scientific inquiry, and a consideration of its relevance to certain outstanding philosophical views which Peirce held. This double approach is necessary because his views on scientific method are interlaces with a profound and elaborate philosophy of the cosmos. Peirce's thought is unusually close-knit, and his difficulty as a writer lies in his inability to achieve a partial focus without bringing into view ...

Fields of Gold: Financing the Global Land Rush (Cornell Series on Land: New Perspectives on Territory, Development, and Environment) by Madeleine Fairbairn (Cornell University Press) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 11 hours ago

Fields of Gold critically examines the history, ideas, and political struggles surrounding the financialization of farmland. In particular, Madeleine Fairbairn focuses on developments in two of the most popular investment locations, the US and Brazil, looking at the implications of financiers' acquisition of land and control over resources for rural livelihoods and economic justice. At the heart of Fields of Gold is a tension between efforts to transform farmland into a new financial asset class, and land's physical and social properties, which frequently obstruct that transformation. But what makes the book unique among the growing body of work on the global land grab is Fairbairn's interest in those acquiring land, rather than those affected by land acquisitions. Fairbairn's work sheds ethnographic light on the actors and relationships -- from Iowa to Manhattan to São Paulo -- that have helped to turn land into an attractive financial asset class.

Those convicted of homicide were hanged on the public gallows before being dissected under the Murder Act in Georgian England. Yet, from 1752, whether criminals actually died on the hanging tree or in the dissection room remained a medical mystery in early modern society. Dissecting the Criminal Corpse takes issue with the historical cliché of corpses dangling from the hangman's rope in crime studies. Some convicted murderers did survive execution in early modern England. Establishing medical death in the heart-lungs-brain was a physical enigma. Criminals had large bull-necks, strong willpowers, and hearty survival instincts. Extreme hypothermia often disguised coma in a prisoner hanged in the winter cold. The youngest and fittest were capable of reviving on the dissection table. Many died under the lancet. Capital legislation disguised a complex medical choreography that surgeons staged. They broke the Hippocratic Oath by executing the Dangerous Dead across England from 1752 until ...

Rivers are among the most threatened ecosystems of the world. They increasingly suffer from pollution, water abstraction, river channelisation and damming. Fundamental knowledge of ecosystem structure and function is necessary to understand how human acitivities interfere with natural processes and which interventions are feasible to rectify this. Modern water legislation strives for sustainable water resource management and protection of important habitats and species. However, decision makers would benefit from more profound understanding of ecosystem degradation processes and of innovative methodologies and tools for efficient mitigation and ...

Shaping Natural History and Settler Society: Mary Elizabeth Barber and the Nineteenth-Century Cape (Cambridge Imperial and Post-Colonial Studies ... by Tanja Hammel (Palgrave Macmillan) 5.0 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 15 hours ago

This book explores the life and work of Mary Elizabeth Barber, a British-born settler scientist who lived in the Cape during the nineteenth century. It provides a lens into a range of subjects within the history of knowledge and science, gender and social history, postcolonial, critical heritage and archival studies. The book examines the international importance of the life and works of a marginalized scientist, the instrumentalisation of science to settlers' political concerns and reveals the pivotal but largely silenced contribution of indigenous African experts. Including a variety of material, visual and textual sources, this study explores how these artefacts are archived and displayed in museums and critically analyses their content and silences. The book traces Barber's legacy across three continents in collections and archives, offering insights into the politics of memory and history-making. At the same time, it forges a nuanced argument, incorporating study of the North and ...

Biodiversity Conservation and Phylogenetic Systematics: Preserving our evolutionary heritage in an extinction crisis (Topics in Biodiversity and ... by Roseli Pellens (Springer) 3.7 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 15 hours ago

This book is about phylogenetic diversity as an approach to reduce biodiversity losses in this period of mass extinction. Chapters in the first section deal with questions such as the way we value phylogenetic diversity among other criteria for biodiversity conservation; the choice of measures; the loss of phylogenetic diversity with extinction; the importance of organisms that are deeply branched in the tree of life, and the role of relict species. The second section is composed by contributions exploring methodological aspects, such as how to deal with abundance, sampling effort, or conflicting trees in analysis of phylogenetic diversity. The last section is devoted to applications, showing how phylogenetic diversity can be integrated in systematic conservation planning, in EDGE and HEDGE evaluations. This wide coverage makes the book a reference for academics, policy makers and stakeholders dealing with biodiversity conservation.

Framing in Sustainability Science: Theoretical and Practical Approaches (Science for Sustainable Societies) by Shogo Kudo (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 11 hours ago

This open access book offers both conceptual and empirical descriptions of how to "frame" sustainability challenges. It defines "framing" in the context of sustainability science as the process of identifying subjects, setting boundaries, and defining problems. The chapters are grouped into two sections: a conceptual section and a case section. The conceptual section introduces readers to theories and concepts that can be used to achieve multiple understandings of sustainability; in turn, the case section highlights different ways of comprehending sustainability for researchers, practitioners, and other stakeholders. The book offers diverse illustrations of what sustainability concepts entail, both conceptually and empirically, and will help readers become aware of the implicit framings in sustainability-related discourses. In the extant literature, sustainability challenges such as climate change, sustainable development, and rapid urbanization have largely been treated as ...
