Breaking Through the Barrier of Time: Tales of Those Who Have Entertained Visions, Visionaries, and Visitors from the Future (Paranormal and ... by Conrad Bauer (Maplewood Publishing) 2.7 Stars (2 Reviews)    Price verified 18 hours ago

Time travel is an idea as old as humanity. Wouldn't it be great to go back in time or visit the future at will? Some claim they can but is this true or just fiction? Time. The innocuous ticking of the clock is a constant reminder of how quickly it passes, and most of us can't seem to find enough of it. We try our best to squeeze more hours out of a 24-hour day, but we remain forever fixed within those finite parameters. But what if there was a way to free ourselves from the bounds of time? What if there was a way to move beyond the strict confines of the clock and experience past and future realities at will? The concept of time travel is always going to be a controversial one. Critics insist that it is fraught with paradoxes and inconsistencies. And perhaps they're right. But even if time travel is impossible, what about seeing into the future? There have been prophets, seers, and visionaries all over the world who have claimed such clairvoyance for centuries. Were they all elaborate frauds? In this book, we will examine the veracity of such claims as we tell the tales of those who have supposedly entertained visions, visionaries, even visitors from the future. So, whether you are a true believer or a skeptic at heart, withhold your judgment for a moment as we escape the incessant ticking of the clock to look back at those who say they've looked far, far forward.

The Amazing Journey of Reason: from DNA to Artificial Intelligence (SpringerBriefs in Computer Science) by Mario Alemi (Springer) 3.0 Stars (3 Reviews)    Price verified 20 hours ago

Organisms, or organized, living, systems. What's their origin? Why and how did they evolve? The Amazing Journey of Reason analyses the evolution of complex structures in the universe -from the subatomic particles after the Big Bang onwards- in order to understand the emergence of today's interconnected society. Artificial Intelligence, it concludes, is just the final step of a journey which started with DNA, itself the first Information and Communication Technology devised by nature on planet earth. What we are living today is the formation of the distributed nervous system of a metaorganism, in which human beings are the cells. A reassuring environment for us, but one where each individual will count increasingly less. A hugely complex, world-wide organism which makes Homo, while more communicans, also increasingly less sapiens.

Elohim: Ancient Science Fiction or Biblical God? (The Elohim Trilogy Book 1) by Kerry Barger 3.9 Stars (35 Reviews)    Price verified one hour ago

Have you ever wondered who first penned the bible and where its familiar stories originated? Some say much of it was written by Moses a thousand years before that. Others believe it to be a collection of tales told generation after generation around the campfires of nomads. Recently, scholars have uncovered another explanation---one that defies belief! The first intelligent life on earth may have arrived here from another world, according to the translators of some recently discovered 5,000 year-old texts. This fantastic notion was first documented by an individual claiming to be one of those original explorers who traveled to earth, genetically crafted the first humans, and guided the development of civilization. According to his own words, the author of a very ancient story was (in a very practical sense) our 'heavenly' father. His influence can be found in every major religion on earth today. An editorial review by Peter M. Fitzpatrick, The US Review of Books: "I have sought to find additional truths underlying biblical texts by researching historical and archeological data." Sumerian literature, lately rediscovered through archeological relics over 5,000 years old, is composed of cuneiform letters that are difficult to translate. As a result, widely varying interpretations of its meaning have fueled controversial theories, the most famous perhaps being those of Zechariah Sitchin. His ideas about ancient astronauts from a planet beyond Neptune that mine gold on Earth by genetically engineering Homo erectus with their own DNA to produce Homo Sapiens, are echoed here. Kerry frames his narrative in the recollections of the Biblical Nehemiah as he is returning to Israel after the Babylonian Captivity. His memory of the Sumerian shards he was made to translate lead to a "flashback" style of recasting the Book of Genesis retold as if "Elohim" was in fact an ancient astronaut. The planet of origin is updated to the recently mapped Eris, 27 times more massive than ...

Secondary Analysis of Electronic Health Records by MIT Critical Data (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 14 hours ago

This book trains the next generation of scientists representing different disciplines to leverage the data generated during routine patient care. It formulates a more complete lexicon of evidence-based recommendations and support shared, ethical decision making by doctors with their patients. Diagnostic and therapeutic technologies continue to evolve rapidly, and both individual practitioners and clinical teams face increasingly complex ethical decisions. Unfortunately, the current state of medical knowledge does not provide the guidance to make the majority of clinical decisions on the basis of evidence. The present research infrastructure is inefficient and frequently produces unreliable results that cannot be replicated. Even randomized controlled trials (RCTs), the traditional gold standards of the research reliability hierarchy, are not without limitations. They can be costly, labor intensive, and slow, and can return results that are seldom generalizable to every patient population. Furthermore, many pertinent but unresolved clinical and medical systems issues do not seem to have attracted the interest of the research enterprise, which has come to focus instead on cellular and molecular investigations and single-agent (e.g., a drug or device) effects. For clinicians, the end result is a bit of a "data desert" when it comes to making decisions. The new research infrastructure proposed in this book will help the medical profession to make ethically sound and well informed decisions for their patients.

Low-Dose Radiation Effects on Animals and Ecosystems: Long-Term Study on the Fukushima Nuclear Accident by Manabu Fukumoto (Springer) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 19 hours ago

This open access book summarizes the latest scientific findings regarding the biological effects of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant (FNPP) accident in 2011. Various cases of changes in animals and organisms have been reported since the FNPP accident. However, it is often unknown whether they are actually due to radiation, since the dose or dose-rate are not necessarily associated with the changes observed. This book brings together the works of radiation biologists and ecologists to provide reliable radioecology data and gives insight into future radioprotection. The book examines the environmental pollution and radiation exposure, and contains valuable data from abandoned livestock in the ex-evacuation zone and from wild animals including invertebrates and vertebrates, aqueous and terrestrial animals, and plants that are subjected to long-term exposure in the area still affected by radiation. It also analyzes dose evaluation, and offers new perspectives gained from the accident, as well as an overview for future studies to promote radioprotection of humans and the ecosystem. Since the biological impact of radiation is influenced by various factors, it is difficult to scientifically define the effects of low-dose/low-dose-rate radiation. However, the detailed research data presented can be combined with the latest scientific and technological advances, such as artificial intelligence, to provide new insights in the future. This book is a unique and valuable resource for researchers, professionals and anyone interested in the impact of exposure to radiation or contamination with radioactive materials.

Vaquita: Science, Politics, and Crime in the Sea of Cortez by Brooke Bessesen (Island Press) 5.0 Stars (26 Reviews)    Price verified 14 hours ago

"Intrepid conservation detective story." -- Nature "A lucid, informed, and gripping account... a must-read." -- Science "Passionate... a heartfelt and alarming tale." -- Publishers Weekly "Gripping... a well-told and moving tale of environmentalism and conservation." -- Kirkus "Compelling." -- Library Journal In 2006, vaquita, a diminutive porpoise making its home in the Upper Gulf of California, inherited the dubious title of world's most endangered marine mammal. Nicknamed "panda of the sea" for their small size and beguiling facial markings, vaquitas have been in decline for decades, dying by the hundreds in gillnets intended for commercially valuable fish, as well as for an endangered fish called totoaba. When international crime cartels discovered a lucrative trade in the swim bladders of totoaba, illegal gillnetting went rampant, and now the lives of the few remaining vaquitas hang in the balance. Author Brooke Bessesen takes us on a journey to Mexico's Upper Gulf region to uncover the story. She interviewed townspeople, fishermen, scientists, and activists, teasing apart a complex story filled with villains and heroes, a story whose outcome is unclear. When diplomatic and political efforts to save the little porpoise failed, Bessesen followed a team of veterinary experts in a binational effort to capture the last remaining vaquitas and breed them in captivity -- the best hope for their survival. In this fast-paced, soul-searing tale, she learned that there are no easy answers when extinction is profitable. Whether the rescue attempt succeeds or fails, the world must ask itself hard questions. When vaquita and the totoaba are gone, the black market will turn to the next vulnerable species. What will we do then?
