With the encroachment of the Internet into nearly all aspects of work and life, it seems as though information is everywhere. However, there is information and then there is correct, appropriate, and timely information. While we might love being able to turn to Wikipedia® for encyclopedia-like information or search Google® for the thousands of links on a topic, engineers need the best information, information that is evaluated, up-to-date, and complete. Accurate, vetted information is necessary when building new skyscrapers or developing new prosthetics for returning military veterans While the award-winning first edition of Using the Engineering Literature used a roadmap analogy, we now need a three-dimensional analysis reflecting the complex and dynamic nature of research in the information age. Using the Engineering Literature, Second Edition provides a guide to the wide range of resources available in all fields of engineering. This second edition has been thoroughly revised and features new sections on nanotechnology as well as green engineering. The information age has greatly impacted the way engineers find information. Engineers have an effect, directly and indirectly, on almost all aspects of our lives, and it is vital that they find the right information at the right time to create better products and processes. Comprehensive and up to date, with expert chapter authors, this book fills a gap in the literature, providing critical information in a user-friendly format.

Kennen Sie neben süß, sauer, bitter und salzig die fünfte Geschmacksrichtung? Möchten Sie verstehen, warum Ihnen Soufflées immer wieder zusammenfallen oder lernen, wie Sie einen ganzen Truthahn optimal braten? Gehören Sie zu den 40% Männern oder 25% Frauen, die Trüffel nicht riechen können? Diese und viele andere Fragen aus der Welt der Kochkunst beantwortet Peter Barham, in dem er das Kochen als experimentelle Wissenschaft betrachtet. Beim Zubereiten von Lebensmitteln und beim Kochen laufen viele Prozesse ab, die sich naturwissenschaftlich gut beschreiben lassen. Das Verständnis der Chemie und Physik des Kochens wird unausweichlich dazu führen, dass sich auch Ihre eigenen Kochkünste wesentlich verbessern. Für jedermann leicht verständlich und unterhaltsam, aber ohne wichtige Details auszulassen, erklärt Ihnen der Autor, warum bestimmte Rezepte gut funktionieren und – viel wichtiger – warum andere ständig misslingen. Auf diese Weise werden Schritt für Schritt die Geheimnisse der guten Kochkunst entschleiert und Sie lernen interessante Rezepte und die dahinter liegenden physikalischen und chemischen Prozesse kennen. Zusätzlich beschreibt der Autor interessante Küchenexperimente für die ganze Familie.

Miller's SUSTAINING THE EARTH, 6th Edition is a science-based book designed for introductory courses in environmental science. The reason Tyler Miller has been the most successful author in environmental science, academic writing is his attention to currency, trend setting presentation of content, ability to predict student and instructor supplement needs, and unique ability to retain the hallmark characteristics.

Updated quarterly with articles from InfoTrac College Edition service, CNNA(R) Today Video Clips, and animations, instructors will be able to seamlessly incorporate the most current news articles and up-to-the minute research findings to support classroom instruction and text presentations The content in the 6th edition of SUSTAINING THE EARTH is everything you have come to expect and more. Two new chapters on basic ecology (Chapters 3 and 4) have been added to this edition to enhance this science-based book This text differs from Miller's comprehensive text, LIVING IN THE ENVIRONMENT, 13th Edition, because there is much less detail and more integration of topics, with a different chapter order. For example, the following topics have been integrated into single chapters: human population dynamics and urban problems are in Chapter 5, nonrenewable and renewable energy resources are in Chapter 6, terrestrial and aquatic biodiversity are in Chapter 7, soils, food production, and pesticides are in Chapter, climate change, ozone depletion, and air pollution are in Chapter 11, water resources and water pollution are in Chapter 12, solid and hazardous waste are in Chapter 13, andenvironmental economics, politics, and worldviews are in Chapter 14.

Singt, ihr Lebenden und ihr Toten, singt

Jojo und seine kleine Schwester Kayla leben bei ihren Großeltern Mam and Pop an der Golfküste von Mississippi. Leonie, ihre Mutter, kümmert sich kaum um sie. Sie nimmt Drogen und arbeitet in einer Bar. Wenn sie high ist, wird Leonie von Visionen ihres toten Bruders heimgesucht, die sie quälen, aber auch trösten. Mam ist unheilbar an Krebs erkrankt, und der stille und verlässliche Pop versucht, den Haushalt aufrecht zu erhalten und Jojo beizubringen, wie man erwachsen wird. Als der weiße Vater von Leonies Kindern aus dem Gefängnis entlassen wird, packt sie ihre Kinder und eine Freundin ins Auto und fährt zur »Parchment Farm«, dem staatlichen Zuchthaus, um ihn abzuholen. Eine Reise voller Gefahr und Hoffnung. Jesmyn Ward erzählt so berührend wie unsentimental von einer schwarzen Familie in einer von Armut und tief verwurzeltem Rassismus geprägten Gesellschaft. Was bedeuten familiäre Bindungen, wo sind ihre Grenzen? Wie bewahrt man Würde, Liebe und Achtung, wenn man sie nicht erfährt? Singt, ihr Lebenden und ihr Toten, singt ist ein großer Roman, getragen von Wards so besonderer melodischer Sprache, ein zärtliches Familienporträt, eine Geschichte von Hoffnungen und Kämpfen, voller Anspielungen auf das Alte Testament und die Odyssee.
