In The Ends of the World, Peter Brannen dives into deep time, exploring Earths past dead ends, and in the process, offers us a glimpse of our possible future. Many scientists now believe that the climate shifts of the twenty-first century have analogs in these five extinctions. Using the visible clues these devastations have left behind in the fossil record, The Ends of the World takes us inside "scenes of the crime," from South Africa to the New York Palisades, to tell the story of each extinction. Brannen examines the fossil record which is rife with creatures like dragonflies the size of sea gulls and guillotine-mouthed fish and introduces us to the researchers on the front lines who, using the forensic tools of modern science, are piecing together what really happened at the crime scenes of the Earths biggest whodunits. Part road trip, part history, and part cautionary tale, The Ends of the World takes us on a tour of the ways that our planet has clawed itself back from the grave, and casts our future in a completely new light...

    Silencing Sapphire A Sapphire Dubois Mystery (Sapphire Dubois Mysteries Book 2) [Thompson, Mia] (Tapa Blanda)

    -Autor: Thompson, Mia-Editorial: Diversion Books-Formato: Tapa Blanda-Idioma: Ingles-ISBN-13: 9781626812130-Páginas: 224-Dimensiones: 20.30cm. x 12.70cm. x 1.30cm.-Peso (kg.): 0.26-Descripcion: In his landmark provocative style, Stephen Jenkinson makes the case that we must birth a new generation of elders, one poised and willing to be true stewards of the planet and its species. Come of Age does not offer tips on how to be a better senior citizen or how to be kinder to our elders. Rather, with lyrical prose and incisive insight, Stephen Jenkinson explores the great paradox of elderhood in North America: how we are awash in the aged and yet somehow lacking in wisdom; how we relegate senior citizens to the corner of the house while simultaneously heralding them as sage elders simply by virtue of their age. Our own unreconciled relationship with what it means to be an elder has yielded a culture nearly bereft of them. Meanwhile, the planet boils, and the younger generation boils with anger over being left an environment and sociopolitical landscape deeply scarred and broken. Taking on the sacred cow of the family, Jenkinson argues that elderhood is a function rather than an identity--it is not a position earned simply by the number of years on the planet or the title "parent" or "grandparent." As with his seminal book Die Wise, Jenkinson interweaves rich personal stories with iconoclastic observations that will leave readers radically rethinking their concept of what it takes to be an elder and the risks of doing otherwise. Part critique, part call to action, Come of Age is a love song inviting us--imploring us--to elderhood in this time of trouble. That time is now. We're an hour before dawn, and first light will show the carnage, or the courage, we bequeath to the generations to come...

    Baryonic Processes in the Large-Scale Structuring of the Universe (Springer Theses) [Durrive, Jean-Baptiste] (Tapa Dura)

    -Autor: Durrive, Jean-Baptiste-Editorial: Springer-Formato: Tapa Dura-Idioma: Ingles-ISBN-13: 9783319618807-Páginas: 187-Dimensiones: 23.50cm. x 15.49cm. x 1.27cm.-Peso (kg.): 0.60-Descripcion: This thesis addresses two very different but equally important topics in the very broad fields of astrophysics and cosmology: (I) the generation of cosmological magnetic fields and (II) gravitational fragmentation of the Cosmic Web. All mathematical developments are completed by illuminating physical interpretations, and the thesis, which is guided by existing observations, is purely theoretical. In part I, the author further develops a magnetogenesis model proposed in the literature, providing an unprecedented level of physical understanding. He demonstrates that the physics of photoionisation is very likely to have premagnetised, at a relevant level, the entire Universe at the early epoch of the formation of the first luminous sources. In part II, the author adapts the tools of plasma spectral theory to the context of gravitational instability of the baryonic gas within the stratified structures of the Cosmic Web. He skillfully derives the wave equation governing the growth of perturbations and explores various equilibrium configurations, in planar and cylindrical geometries characteristic of cosmic walls and filaments, for isothermal and polytropic conditions, with or without an external gravitational background. Clearly structured and written in pedagogical style, this outstanding thesis puts the results into perspective and highlights the merits and limitations of the various approaches explored...

Jack Shanley is a well-known New York artist, charming and vain, who doesnt mean to plunge his family into crisis. His wife, Deb, gladly left behind a difficult career as a dancer to raise the two children she adores. In the ensuing years, she has mostly avoided coming face-to-face with the weaknesses of the man she married. But then an anonymously sent package arrives in the mail: a cardboard box containing sheaves of printed emails chronicling Jacks secret life. The package is addressed to Deb, but its delivered into the wrong hands: her childrens. With this vertiginous opening begins a debut that is by turns funny, wise, and indescribably moving. As the Shanleys spin apart into separate orbits, leaving New York in an attempt to regain their bearings, fifteen-year-old Simon feels the allure of adult freedoms for the first time, while eleven-year-old Kay wanders precariously into a grown-up world she cant possibly understand. Writing with extraordinary precision, humor, and beauty, Julia Pierpont has crafted a timeless, hugely enjoyable novel about the bonds of family lifeatheir brittleness, and their resilience.

    The Future of Whiteness [Linda Martin Alcoff] (Tapa Blanda)

    - Autor: Linda Martin Alcoff- Idioma: Ingles- Formato: Papel -Tapa Blanda- Editorial: Polity- ISBN-13: 9780745685458- Páginas: 200- Dimensiones: 21.34cm. x 13.72cm. x 1.52cm.- Peso: 0.39 kg.- Descripción:White identity is in ferment. White, European Americans living in the United States will soon share an unprecedented experience of slipping below 50% of the population. The impending demographic shifts are already felt in most urban centers and the effect is a national backlash of hyper-mobilized political, and sometimes violent, activism with a stated aim that is simultaneously vague and deadly clear: 'to take our country back.' Meanwhile the spectre of 'minority status' draws closer, and the material advantages of being born white are eroding. A This is the political and cultural reality tackled by Linda Martin Alcoff in The Future of Whiteness. She argues that whiteness is here to stay, at least for a while, but that half of whites have given up on ideas of white supremacy, and the shared public, material culture is more integrated than ever. More and more, whites are becoming aware of how they appear to non-whites, both at home and abroad, and this is having profound effects on white identity in North America. The young generation of whites today, as well as all those who follow, will have never known a country in which they could take white identity as the unchallenged default that dominates the political, economic and cultural leadership. Change is on the horizon, and the most important battleground is among white people themselves.A The Future of Whiteness makes no predictions but astutely analyzes the present reaction and evaluates the current signs of turmoil. Beautifully written and cogently argued, the book looks set to spark debate in the field and to illuminate an important area of racial politics...

    -Autor: Boron, Barbara-Editorial: GRIN Publishing-Formato: Tapa Blanda-Idioma: Ingles-ISBN-13: 9783668076839-Páginas: 96-Dimensiones: 21.00cm. x 14.80cm. x 0.58cm.-Peso (kg.): 0.15-Descripcion: Akademische Arbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Touristik / Tourismus, Note: 1,3, Hochschule fur angewandte Wissenschaften Kempten, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Ziel dieser Arbeit soll es sein, die psychographische Segmentierung im Bereich der Kreuzfahrt darzustellen. Dabei soll auf die Segmentierung nach Kreuzfahrtmotiven, also Bequemlichkeit, Land und Leute kennenlernen, Spass, Unterhaltung, Freizeit, Sport etc. eingegangen werden. Anschliessend soll die Segmentierung auf Basis des Nutzenwertes einer Kreuzfahrt erlautert werden. Dabei wird in Life-Style-Segmentierung und einer Segmentierung nach speziellen Interessen unterschieden. Bereits seit uber 100 Jahren kreuzen Schiffe zu touristischen Vergnugungen uber die Meere dieser Welt. Doch waren diese Reisen stets nur einem sehr kleinen Personenkreis vorbehalten. Die Produkte wurden einfach am Markt platziert, ohne Rucksicht auf die Bedurfnisse potentieller Kunden zu nehmen. Seit einiger Zeit allerdings ist ein ganz anderes Bild zu beobachten: Millionen von Menschen mit verschiedensten sozialen Merkmalen, Anspruchen und Interessen tummeln sich auf den Kreuzfahrtschiffen. Ein regelrechter Boom ist entstanden, allein in Deutschland stiegen die Passagierzahlen innerhalb eines Jahrzehntes um 130 Prozent. Wie lasst sich das erklaren?...
