Alan Turing: A Life From Beginning to End (World War 2 Biographies Book 7) by Hourly History 4.4 Stars (83 Reviews)    Price verified 10 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 10 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 10 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.

A sight study with living examples about addictions. Addictions cover much more than what most people think. So far, the only studies about addictions were done by those in the scientific medical and psychological fields and were slanted so much that most people who have read those studies still came out with very limited knowledge of addictions. Allow me to tell you the part that medical science does not tell you; they might not even know.

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 14 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 10 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. In it we are also introduced to the 'Solar council', who are a group of entities/representatives from each of the planets within the solar system that make up the council.

They introduce us to life upon each planet and some of the moons at varying dimensional levels. This introductory book, that will lead to further books from the 'Solar council', sheds light on the premise that our whole solar system is a school of learning, something that has been known of by previous ...

ZERO to ONE: Making Our Way Toward a Conscious Civilization by Bruce 'Zen' Benefiel 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 10 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 ...

Studies On Darwinism & Genetics by Giovanni Lo Presti (Gruppo Albatros Il Filo) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 21 hours ago

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. Common man in the streets of London, New York or Delhi has very little time to worry about some ozone layer up there or some damn iceberg in the North Pole. At best, it is a snow bear's problem. 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. This is a calamity of unprecedented proportions coming our way and a point of no return for the industrial civilization. One of the arguments sceptics throw back ...

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 14 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?
