The Descent of Man

The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex is a book on evolutionary theory by English naturalist Charles Darwin, first published in 1871. It was Darwin's second book on evolutionary theory, following his 1859 work, On the Origin of Species, in which he explored the concept of natural selection. In The Descent of Man, Darwin applies evolutionary theory to human evolution, and details his theory of sexual selection, a form of biological adaptation distinct from, yet interconnected with, natural selection. The book discusses many related issues, including evolutionary psychology, evolutionary ethics, differences between human races, differences between sexes, the dominant role of women in choosing mating partners, and the relevance of the evolutionary theory to society.

Rethinking Interdisciplinarity across the Social Sciences and Neurosciences (Neuroscience Intersections)

This book offers a provocative account of interdisciplinary research across the neurosciences, social sciences and humanities. Setting itself against standard accounts of interdisciplinary 'integration,' and rooting itself in the authors' own experiences, the book establishes a radical agenda for collaboration across these disciplines. Rethinking Interdisciplinarity does not merely advocate interdisciplinary research, but attends to the hitherto tacit pragmatics, affects, power dynamics, and spatial logics in which that research is enfolded. Understanding the complex relationships between brains, minds, and environments requires a delicate, playful and genuinely experimental interdisciplinarity, and this book shows us how it can be done. This book is open access under a CC-BY license and funded by The Wellcome Trust.

Handbook of Climate Change And Agroecosystems: The Agricultural Model Intercomparison And Improvement Project (AGMIP) Integrated Crop And Economic ... Change Impacts, Adaptation, and Mitigation)

"Top agricultural scientists from around the world have taken up the challenge of sustainable agriculture, with the specific focus on integrating agronomic, climatological, biophysical and socio-economic perspectives and processes. Every chapter (of the Handbook) contributes to addressing the growing food-security challenges facing the world."Foreword by Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia UniversityClimate effects on agriculture are of increasing concern in both the scientific and policy communities because of the growing population and the greater uncertainty in the weather during growing seasons. Changes in production are directly linked to variations in temperature and precipitation during the growing season and often to the offseason changes in weather because of soil water storage to replenish the soil profile. This is not an isolated problem but one of worldwide interest because each country has concerns about their food security.The Agricultural Model Intercomparison and Improvement Project (AgMIP) was developed to evaluate agricultural models and intercompare their ability to predict climate impacts. In sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia, South America and East Asia, AgMIP regional research teams (RRTs) are conducting integrated assessments to improve understanding of agricultural impacts of climate change (including biophysical and economic impacts) at national and regional scales. Other AgMIP initiatives include global gridded modeling, data and information technology (IT) tool development, simulation of crop pests and diseases, site-based crop-climate sensitivity studies, and aggregation and scaling.

Biochemistry: The University Student Survival Guide to Ace Biochemistry

With the help of this guide you will easily pass your post-secondary course on biochemistry. Mr. Donelly has 17 years experience as a university professor.

It is possible to break science into different specialties like biochemistry, chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, anatomy, and physiology. Biochemistry brings biology and chemistry together by allowing chemical knowledge and techniques to help explain biological issues. Biochemistry is best described by stating that biochemists assess processes on a molecule level. They examine cells, such as proteins, organelles, and proteins looking for the way cells communicate, grow, or stop illness. If you think about it there is very little that separates one organism from another; it is just how the units stack up that determines the nature of it.

The difference between cellulose and starch is all that determines the difference between a tree and a potato.

In biochemistry, you will study the chemistry of "living organisms" on a molecular level. Organic chemistry is often required in colleges and universities before biochemistry because living organisms are based on carbon. Organic chemistry studies the relationship of carbon to living organisms, as well as other molecules required to live.

Biochemists study processes of digestion at a cellular level or they may study an individual electron transport within a particular cell.

This study aid will help you explore biochemistry in more straightforward terms to help you succeed in your course. You may not need every chapter in this text depending on when you pick it up. However, it is encouraged that you use it for a review as your final edges closer to help you re-examine concepts that may have been tough in the beginning weeks of class.

Each chapter will overview relevant terms, explain the concept in easy-to-understand words, and have questions for you to answer.

Making Medicines in Africa: The Political Economy of Industrializing for Local Health (International Political Economy Series)

This book is open access under a CC-BY license. The importance of the pharmaceutical industry in Sub-Saharan Africa, its claim to policy priority, is rooted in the vast unmet health needs of the sub-continent. Making Medicines in Africa is a collective endeavour, by a group of contributors with a strong African and more broadly Southern presence, to find ways to link technological development, investment and industrial growth in pharmaceuticals to improve access to essential good quality medicines, as part of moving towards universal access to competent health care in Africa. The authors aim to shift the emphasis in international debate and initiatives towards sustained Africa-based and African-led initiatives to tackle this huge challenge. Without the technological, industrial, intellectual, organisational and research-related capabilities associated with competent pharmaceutical production, and without policies that pull the industrial sectors towards serving local health needs, the African sub-continent cannot generate the resources to tackle its populations' needs and demands. Research for this book has been selected as one of the 20 best examples of the impact of UK research on development. See http://www.ukcds.org.uk/the-global-impact-of-uk-research for further details.

Chemistry: Atoms First

Chemistry: Atoms First is a peer-reviewed, openly licensed introductory textbook produced through a collaborative publishing partnership between OpenStax and the University of Connecticut and UConn Undergraduate Student Government Association. This title is an adaptation of the OpenStax Chemistry text and covers scope and sequence requirements of the two-semester general chemistry course. Reordered to fit an atoms first approach, this title introduces atomic and molecular structure much earlier than the traditional approach, delaying the introduction of more abstract material so students have time to acclimate to the study of chemistry. Chemistry: Atoms First also provides a basis for understanding the application of quantitative principles to the chemistry that underlies the entire course.

Developing Your Intuition: 5 Simple Steps To Help You Live a More Intuitive Life

***For a limited time, you can get this author's latest book, The Yin & Yang Lifestyle Guide, for free - click here to find out more > michaelhetherington.com.au/freebook (just copy and paste into your browser)***

The little book will help you connect more readily and easily with your intuition. We all have the capacity for intuitive insight; in fact, intuition is already within us - whether we are aware of it or not.

Having intuition doesn't involve having psychic powers or having to visualize white lights coming out of our heads. These common "new age" style techniques are not at all necessary to develop our intuition. In some cases, these techniques further impair our capacity to be intuitive simply because it can add more clutter into our minds. Developing your intuition is not about adding more or wanting more, it's about throwing things out and wanting less - when we have cultivated a healthy space within, we can hear, see and feel our intuition more clearly.

This book will help you to understand what intuition is and why it is an important part of our lives. It will outline some very simple and progressive steps to take in order to de-clutter the mind so that you can become more aware and sensitive to your intuitive abilities.

Nature Calls: a yearly nature spotting guide (preschool nature wild animals picture book)

Do you know what is in your garden? who slinks around your park? which animals leave footprints in the snow? and what noises they make? Nature Calls gives you a sneaky peak into the lives of wild animals and birds that live in Britain all year round and some, that are just visiting. A nonfiction nature and science book for everyone aged over 3.

Q&As with the author:

Q. What makes Nature Calls special?

A. I spent many hours listening to bird audio and animal noises and interpreted them into words (phonics), so when you are looking at this nature spotter with your children, you can learn to recognise what each one sounds like. You can often hear birds or animals without actually seeing them, so this is a great way to identify who is in the bushes or high up in the trees.

If you'd like a copy of this free nature book as a children's ebook, all you have to do is download it. If you'd like a signed paperback copy, just have a look at my website store. Nature Calls is perfect for preschool children from age 3 years and over.

Q. Why should I give your books a try?

A. I have been an illustrator for nearly a zillion years (or so it feels!) and I LOVE drawing wildlife. I always 'see' a book before I write it, and you will know what I mean when you have a look at my books. I am also intensely interested in education - so I always slip a sneaky way to learn things into my stories. My customers and reviews tell me how much they love my books, how 'each page is a smorgasbord, a real treat for little readers' and 'I could not wait to turn the pages and see the antics, marvellous illustrations. This is a must read for all small people, and their grandparents.'

Q. Do you have other books?

A. Yes - loads, and all but The Golden Stone can be purchased as paperback books too.

Why We Should Go Vegan

We should go vegan! That is the unambiguous conclusion of this short book. This conclusion is reached through a broad examination of the consequences of our not being vegan - both in relation to human health, environmental pollution, the risk of the spread of diseases, and in relation to the animals we farm and kill. On all these levels the conclusion is clear: We have no good reason to not go vegan, while we have many good reasons to stop our practice of raising, killing and eating animals and things from them. The bottom line: We have a strong ethical obligation to go vegan, and that is true even if we only care about ourselves and our fellow human beings. "Magnus Vinding makes a compelling case for ending the abuse of other sentient beings. What will we tell our grandchildren? ("But I liked the taste?")" - David Pearce, founder of BLTC Research and co-founder of Humanity+, author of 'The Hedonistic Imperative'. "An excellent concise statement of the arguments for going vegan." - Peter Singer, Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, author of 'The Life You Can Save: Acting Now to End World Poverty' and 'Animal Liberation'.

The giant short-faced bear existed up until 11,000 years ago. It is believed to be the largest carnivorous mammal to have ever lived.

A bear's sense of smell is seven times better than a bloodhound's!

In spite of being classified as carnivores, about 75% to 85% of a bear's diet is made up of plants.

Bears do eat honey, although they do not like it as much as Winnie the Pooh does. In fact, they prefer to eat the baby bees when they do stumble upon a beehive.

Contrary to popular belief, bears are not nocturnal. In fact, most of them are active during the day.

Bears tend to walk in their own tracks. This means that an area frequented by bears may have only one set of tracks, but the paw prints will appear sunken as if they have been beaten into the soil.

Constructions of Cancer in Early Modern England: Ravenous Natures (Palgrave Studies in Literature, Science and Medicine)

This book is open access under a CC-BY licence. Cancer is perhaps the modern world's most feared disease. Yet, we know relatively little about this malady's history before the nineteenth century. This book provides the first in-depth examination of perceptions of cancerous disease in early modern England. Looking to drama, poetry and polemic as well as medical texts and personal accounts, it contends that early modern people possessed an understanding of cancer which remains recognizable to us today. Many of the ways in which medical practitioners and lay people imagined cancer - as a 'woman's disease' or a 'beast' inside the body - remain strikingly familiar, and they helped to make this disease a byword for treachery and cruelty in discussions of religion, culture and politics. Equally, cancer treatments were among the era's most radical medical and surgical procedures. From buttered frog ointments to agonizing and dangerous surgeries, they raised abiding questions about the nature of disease and the proper role of the medical practitioner.

The Thomson Ecology Handbook: A practical guide to wildlife legislation for project managers

The world's biodiversity is highly valued but is also highly threatened by various types of human activity. As a consequence, statutory measures are in place to protect habitats and wildlife. These measures range from global to local, and give protection to whole ecosystems or single species. Because there are now legal obligations in place for proposed developments to enhance the biodiversity of the site, and many species are protected by law, it is essential that project managers understand the importance of considering ecology early on in a project. Failure to address these issues can lead to expensive and lengthy project delays. The Thomson Ecology Handbook provides a general overview of current wildlife legislation, guidance and practical techniques, and is aimed at helping project managers understand and plan for ecology. The book describes in simple terms, essential advice about the law on ecology in relation to construction and development. The book also offers practical advice on protected species, helping the project manager to understand more about what ecological surveys and mitigation may be needed. The book can be referred to on site or in meetings and makes sense of what could be seen as a complicated and unknown area for many project managers and people working in construction and development. The book describes wildlife law (planning law, animal welfare law, and case law), planning policy and guidance, protected sites, species and habitats, surveys for each species, mitigation and biodiversity enhancement, and practical techniques for each species, including bats, badgers and great crested newts. You don't need to read it cover to cover, just go straight to the section which you need help with - when you need to.

Handbook of Visualization: Utilize Your Daydream and Turn It into Reality

There are a lot of self-development books that suggest or advice to do visualization, but they never cover how to do visualization. There are a lot of books advice you to imagine yourself in abundance, imagine you are riding your dream car, imagine yourself in ideal body, imagine whatever you want to be, do, and have, but let me ask you this, "What the different of those with daydreaming?"

Visualization is a method to manifest your dream in very simple way, you just have to imagine or visualize your dream in your mind. Not all people know that visualization is a suggestive idea, so actually we use visualization to persuade our subconscious mind in order to achieve what our desires.

And how to use visualization is same like affirmation, by repeating a certain script, we could program our subconscious mind. After all the repetition is the best way to program subconscious mind. Most books or even seminars never taught how to create a visualization script.

Handbook of Visualization: Utilize Your Daydream and Turn It into Reality provides:

1. How visualization works

2. How to create a visualization script

3. How to start your visualization session

4. How to overcome a negative emotion

5. What is the real creative visualization

6. What is the real purpose of visualization

7. What actually happens in subconscious mind after you visualize

The Self-Love Solution: A Simplified Guide for Overcoming Depression and Fulfilling Your Deepest Desires

Self-love is the solution to ALL your problems. I'm not saying that is easy to love yourself fully and unconditionally. No, it is certainly not easy when we have lived most of our lives doing the exact opposite, but through some simple practices, we can begin to turn our lives around into a purely positive direction. We can, by taking baby steps in the direction of self-love, make self-love a habitual way of being. When self-love eventually becomes an automatic habit of ours, we will know what it's like to live an effortless life.

Separation Anxiety In Dogs: Steps by Step How to Stop and Treat Puppy Separation Anxiety

Separation Anxiety In Dogs - Steps by Step How to Stop and Treat Puppy Separation Anxiety

Preview:

Separation anxiety in dogs is the biggest cause of dog behavior problems. What can happen, is that your puppy can develop a case of separation anxiety, where they simply aren't comfortable unless they're around you.

Why Separation Anxiety in Dogs is So Important

I must emphasize over and over the need for proper steps to make sure that your puppy both trusts you and looks to you as their pack leader, but also to make sure that your puppy is confident.

As much as you might want to have your puppy in your lap all the time, and constantly looking to you for fun and attention, you have to keep in mind something extremely serious:

o Behavioral problems are the biggest reason why puppies are sent to animal shelters.

o Separation anxiety is the number one cause for behavioral problems.

So, you don't want to smother your puppy to the point where it's likely that they'll experience separation anxiety when you're not around.

Dual Diagnosis (Mental Illness and Substance Abuse)

The term dual diagnosis denotes a condition where substance dependence, or other excessive substance use, co-occurs with at least one mental health disorder that is not a direct effect of the substance use (intoxication and withdrawal symptoms).Substance abuse (alcohol, legal and illegal drugs and solvents) may affect a patient's mental illness in different ways. It may precipitate mental illness worsen mental illness alleviate mental illness have no effect on mental illness. The relationship between the patient's different mental health disorders and substance abuse is not necessarily always the same. In dual diagnosis, mental illness will persist even when substance use has ceased for a prolonged length of time.

Lactose Intolerance

Lactose intolerance should be identified as the cause of flatulence, abdominal pains and intermittent diarrhoea before performing more extensive investigations. Genetic testing for adult-type hypolactasia (primary hypolactasia, genotype C/C1390) reliably confirms or excludes the predisposition to ordinary lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance is rare in children below 5 years of age.A lactose ingestion test frequently yields false results. Lactose as an ingredient of pharmaceutical tablets very rarely causes symptoms.Coeliac disease is the most important cause of secondary hypolactasia and should be borne in mind when suspecting lactose intolerance.

The First Periodic Table for Elementary Particles

This is a significant breakthrough in elementary particle physics. This short ebook presents the complete table of 1024 elementary particles based on the QAM model as the first Periodic Table for Elementary Particles. A 1024-QAM table is presented that graphically displays how all elementary particles are related, similar to the Standard Periodic Table in chemistry. Interestingly, the math that describes QAM is simple and elegant. If we line up all of the particle masses in order, we find there are a number of "gaps." These are called the mass gaps, and they line up perfectly with 1024-QAM. QAM is very simple - it is the math used for wifi signals, and it perfectly fits the sequence of elementary particle masses. Numerous other particles are predicted using 1024-QAM. This paper provides compelling evidence that our universe is blinking at a high frequency (1.1 THz).

Worms and Parasites: How to Keep Your Dog Free of Both

Worms and Parasites - How to Keep Your Dog Free of Both

PREVIEW:

When we are considering the health of our dog(s), we often overlook some of the essential areas because of the uninteresting details they have to offer. No one does this on purpose but playing, training and feeding often distract you from considering worming and parasites etc. This article is straight to the point and will leave you with new valuable knowledge on worms and parasites.

There are many different ways that dogs and puppies can get worms. Since most worms are species specific they will only be transferred from dogs to dogs, and cannot be passed to other pets or family members. Some parasites can be transferred between different species of animals and even humans, but these are very rare, especially if the pet owner routinely worms the dog to prevent any possible infections.

The biggest source of contamination or infection of worms or other parasites for dogs is other dogs. This can occur if your dog is playing with other dogs that have worms, sharing the same toys or eating from the same dish. Dogs can also get worms from eating or playing with fecal material from infected dogs. This is a very common source of infection especially if the dog is allowed to run outside the yard or plays in a puppy park or other area where there are many dogs.

There are four types of worms that can infect your dog or puppy. They are roundworms, whipworms, tapeworms and hookworms. Roundworms and tapeworms can often be seen in the fecal material or around the dogs anus in the hair. Whipworms and hookworms are usually too small to be seen by the eye, but are evident to the veterinarian when a stool sample is examined. Tapeworms are rarely seen as entire worms but rather small segments of the worm may be noted. They are while in color and are somewhat flattened in shape and appearance. Roundworms are long, relatively slender and look more like very small earthworms. If they have been out of the dogs body for even a short period of time they may have a yellow color rather than being white.

Eloquence of Effort: Beware the Path of Least Resistnce

The Eloquence of Effort echoes the merits of conscientious toil. It provides an insightful look into the benefits of sustained socio-economic effort. To convincingly argue that dreams are only achievable through mind-numbing toil, the writer draws heavily from biographical, philosophical, economic, religious, historical and scientific data.

Work is the mission; the multiple rewards are the byproducts, he argues. Moreover, the pleasure resides in the effort, not the results. Against the dark backdrop of malignancies inflicted on society by unrepentant leeches, the benefit of conscientious work is sharply focused.

The reader is imperceptibly nudged into a higher plane of reality: namely, purposeful effort, regardless of its nature, is supremely rewarding. The writer forces the realization that regardless of the outcome, effort is never wasted. Conversely, indolence is the bane of progress and the root cause of economic crimes. Indeed, corruption in all its diabolical forms is nothing but laziness masquerading as diligence and embraced by vacuous minds craving the most for the least.

Analysis of biographical data sustains the thesis that industry prolongs life; inaction truncates it - a finding supported by the second Law of Thermodynamics.

The persuasiveness of the arguments is supported by a wealth of references. Together they form the final authority; they have given resonance to the arguments contained herein.

The Legend of the Golden Raven: A Novella of The Wicker King

The Legend of the Golden Raven novella, part fairy tale and part gritty reality, follows a boy as he descends into madness.

August and Jack weren't meant to be friends. One is a misfit with a pyro streak and the other a golden boy on the rugby team. But as their relationship intensifies, Jack slowly begins to lose his mind--taking readers on an intimate journey into the fantasy kingdom creeping into the edges of his world.

As the novella moves back and forth between a medieval legend and our own, contemporary world, nothing is as it seems. The boys alienate everyone around them as they struggle with their sanity and as Jack's quest to fulfill a dark prophecy begins to consume them both . . .

Devour this companion novella to The Wicker King.

Locavore U.S.A.: How a local-food economy is changing one community, a chapter from the book Change Comes to Dinner

In 1950, at least 70 percent of Montana's food was grown in Montana. Many states used to have robust local-food economies, but that has changed drastically around the country in recent decades. National-scale food businesses beat out community-oriented small and medium-sized operations, laying waste to the infrastructure that once supported thriving local-food economies.

There is rising interest in again making food a local affair. But jump-starting a locavore economy is a tricky business. To cut down the massive distances that the vast majority of food eaten in the United States travels before it reaches dinner plates, communities must work to nurture "a cascading effect" by which each piece of a local-food economy enables and then reinforces the others to create a robust, cost-effective network.

Locavore U.S.A. introduces readers to some brave, hard-working souls in western Montana who are building their own such network piece by piece. In the process they are uncovering a key way to transform our industrially dominated food system.

The following ebook is taken from the book Change Comes to Dinner.

Teaching Mindfulness to Veterans: A Resource

The professional manual provides reflections, observations and suggestions about how to teach mindfulness to groups of military veterans. The book also summarizes the science behind teaching mindfulness for individuals with chronic pain, PTSD and depression. The goal of this book is to provide mindfulness teachers with an additional resource for teaching groups with these conditions.

Using qualitative research methodology, we sought to understand the experience of veterans who participated in, declined, or dropped out of mindfulness programs for chronic pain, PTSD and depression. The comments, reflections and occasional recommendations in the book were influenced and informed by the key voices in this endeavor - the voices of veterans themselves. Of note, although we sometimes refer to Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), which is the 8-week program used to teach mindfulness in our setting, our intention is to provide observations and suggestions that more generally apply to teaching mindfulness to veterans in a group format. It is our hope that the quotes, reflections, observations, suggestions will prove helpful to others as they teach mindfulness to those whose burden of suffering is often quite large - our nation's veterans.

As part of the process of developing this resource, we interviewed many veterans who had completed MBSR, as well as veterans who were referred to MBSR but either dropped out or declined to participate. We used qualitative research methodology to understand their experience and identify themes that emerged that we hope will be beneficial for other mindfulness teachers who currently work with veterans or who plan to do so in the future. We also include the reflections of teachers who have extensive experience teaching mindfulness to veterans, so that they could share examples of their approach to teaching mindfulness when working with this population. Hence, this guide reflects the combined perspectives of veterans and mindfulness teachers who have a great deal of experience working with veterans. These reflections and examples range from practical logistical considerations to suggested approaches to group dynamics to observations about teaching specific mindfulness practices. Lastly, we have included supplemental education materials on conditions commonly borne by veterans - chronic pain, PTSD, and depression, to help educate teachers about ways these clinical conditions may be positively impacted by mindfulness. It is our hope that this resource will foster a better understanding by mindfulness teachers of issues often faced by veterans, which will in turn help them to skillfully respond to their needs.

Dog Eye Problems: Preventing and Solving Dog Eye Problems

Dog Eye Problems - Preventing and Solving Dog Eye Problems

Preview:

Information about dog eye problems

No matter the breed of dog, eye problems can become serious very quickly. No matter how clean or well-suited the environment, every dog needs regular eye cleanings. Preventing dog eye problems is a lot easier than solving them once they come up.

Preventing Dog Eye Problems

Dogs have tear ducts that work just like ours do - they flush out debris and lubricate the eye. Also just like our eyes, the result is a wad of gunk in the corners that must be cleaned out.

You should use a warm, damp cloth or cotton swab every day, and roll it away from the eye to gently remove this buildup. Do this softly and carefully, avoiding the eyeball itself as well as the delicate tissue inside the eyelid. If the buildup is dry and crusty, you should close your dog's eye before applying the pressure necessary to remove it.

Some dog breeds have very hairy faces, and sometimes that hair will grow too close to the eye. This can cause dog eye problems, because the hair might prevent the eyes from doing their normal, automatic cleaning and flushing. Trim the bangs and other hairs that linger close to the eyes, but trim it carefully.

Never point scissors toward the dog's eyes. Someone should hold your dog's head still while you do this.

1024 Elementary Particles

This is a significant breakthrough in elementary particle physics. This short ebook presents the complete table of 1024 elementary particles based on the QAM model as the first Periodic Table for Elementary Particles. A 1024-QAM table is presented that graphically displays how all elementary particles are related, similar to the Standard Periodic Table in chemistry. Interestingly, the math that describes QAM is simple and elegant. If we line up all of the particle masses in order, we find there are a number of "gaps." These are called the mass gaps, and they line up perfectly with 1024-QAM. QAM is very simple - it is the math used for wifi signals, and it perfectly fits the sequence of elementary particle masses. Numerous other particles are predicted using 1024-QAM. This paper provides compelling evidence that our universe is blinking at a high frequency.

Living Math: Seeing mathematics in every day life (and appreciating it more too).

A friend once told me that he couldn't remember the last time he had used calculus. How sad. I can't remember the last time I didn't use calculus. Mathematics isn't just esoteric busywork. It's the language of cause and effect-a description of why things work the way they do. Mathematics connects the dots in the picture that is the world around us. Understanding the mathematical relationships between objects and events will give you a whole different perspective, like seeing color in a world where others see only black and white. Join me on this adventure, in which I will take you on a tour of Living Math.

Coral and Coral Reefs

THE subject upon which I wish to address you to-night is the structure and origin of Coral and Coral Reefs. Under the head of "coral" there are included two very different things; one of them is that substance which I imagine a great number of us have champed when we were very much younger than we are now, -the common red coral, which is used so much, as you know, for the edification and the delectation of children of tender years, and is also employed for the purposes of ornament for those who are much older, and as some think might know better.

Mathematical Solution Unifying the Four Fundamental Forces in Nature

This technical note describes a simple mathematical-geometrical solution for unifying the four fundamental forces in nature. The fundamental forces of gravitation, electromagnetism, strong force, and the weak force are actually different aspects of the same force. In general, the relationship between the four forces can be described using a form of the equation for Analog Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (Analog-QAM). This equation form is developed utilizing the concept of a "blinking" or discrete physical universe. The approach to develop the solution is described by minimizing the number of available dimensions (zero), which is in contrast to numerous efforts (String theory, Mtheory, Quantum gravity) that attempt to maximize the number of dimensions under consideration. An Electrical Universe (EU) model is presented that provides sufficient conditions for a solution. This mathematical solution should be tested against experimental data to confirm its validity, however it is noted that, "discrete-time" forces will be measured differently than "time-averaged" forces in a laboratory environment. Confirmation of the theory is suggested through small, discrete-time interval measurements of the gravitational acceleration force and the electromagnetic force, where they will be seen to vary continuously, and yet also retain a "time-averaged" value. Each reader must comprehend that our universe literally blinks off and on, more than 1 trillion times every second.

For those unconvinced that our universe is blinking, please read "1024 Elementary Particles," which provides compelling mathematical evidence.

Shopping for Water: How the Market Can Mitigate Water Shortages in the American West

The American West has a long tradition of conflict over water. But after fifteen years of drought across the region, it is no longer simply conflict: it is crisis. In the face of unprecedented declines in reservoir storage and groundwater reserves throughout the West, Shopping for Water focuses on a set of policies that could contribute to a lasting solution: using market forces to facilitate the movement of water resources and to mitigate the risk of water shortages.

Shopping for Water begins by reviewing key dimensions of this problem: the challenges of population and economic growth, the environmental stresses from overuse of common water resources, the risk of increasing water-supply volatility, and the historical disjunction that has developed between and among rural and urban water users regarding the amount we consume and the price we pay for water. The authors then turn to five proposals to encourage the broader establishment and use of market institutions to encourage reallocation of water resources and to provide new tools for risk mitigation. Each of the five proposals offers a means of building resilience into our water management systems.

Synthetic Food Production: Solving Global Hunger

This short technical paper presents a concept with the potential to solve the global hunger problem. A Synthetic Food Production facility is described which can provide daily food supplies for thousands of people at extremely low cost. Using the representative example, and 5 to 10 people operating the facility, it is possible to provide up to 10,000 ears (about 200 bushels) of sweet corn per day. Basically, the process converts electricity into instant food. The facility is minimally self-sustaining, and could be utilized for a wide variety of vegetables and fruits. The process can also be adapted for use on Mars, or any planet with sunlight and a source of water.

Tipping the Balance: Policies to shape agriculture investments and markets in favour of small-scale farmers

A recent wave of large-scale land acquisitions and other commercial investment in agriculture has raised concerns that small-scale producers are being marginalized. This report takes a new look at the role of public policy and market governance in ensuring inclusive sustainable development. It identifies key policy levers and how these tip commercial investments in favour of either small- or large-scale farming, and how policy levers influence market governance to constrain or support the fair sharing of risk and reward between small-scale producers and the rest of the market. A considerable proportion of the report is dedicated to identifying policy elements that can specifically contribute to gender-equitable results. The focus of the analysis is on national policy, with international policy discussed insofar as it affects national policy and investment processes.The work was supported by four country case studies, conducted in Guatemala, Nigeria, Tanzania and the Philippines.

Forests at Risk: Climate Change and the Future of the American West

Climate change poses a huge threat to the West. The current mountain pine beetle epidemic with over 50 million acres of dying trees in western North America has created a powerful "teachable moment" across the region.

A primary goal of the Forests At Risk symposium was to reframe the nation's climate change dialogue by making the issue both personal and real to many who may not appreciate its connection to the immediate world around them. While some may have difficulty relating to rising sea levels, falling water tables, imperiled polar bears and melting glaciers in far-off places, they are still shocked by the sight of vast dying forests around their homes. The Forests At Risk symposium explored the statement by Andy Jacobson, a carbon cycle scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Boulder, that "this is the kind of feedback we're all very worried about in the carbon cycle ... a warming planet leading to, in this case, an insect outbreak that increases carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, which can increase warming."

The overwhelming scientific consensus holds that climate change is one of the most serious threats facing humankind today. We have a soberingly short time in which to reduce atmospheric greenhouse gases if we are to preserve our quality of life and environment. In addition to the global urgency, the American West is deeply dependent on the health of its forests, mountains and streams for both its quality of life and its economy. Put simply, if global warming shortens our winters, diminishes our recreation, and unleashes wildfires, diseases and insect epidemics that devastate our forests, the regional damage would be incalculable.

NOW is the perfect time to learn more in this ebook. The Forests At Risk symposium represented the first substantial public forum focused directly on the connection between climate change and forest health in the American West. In the wake of millions of acres of pine beetle devastation across our continent, this is the ideal moment to highlight the climate change connection and focus on the question of what happens when our forests transform from carbon sinks into carbon sources.

Climatic and Environmental Challenges: Learning from the Horn of Africa (Corne de l'Afrique contemporaine)

In the prospect of the COP21 held in Paris in December 2015, the French Centre for Ethiopian Studies (CFEE) organised a scientific conference on environmental and climatic changes in the horn of Africa, with a decisive financial support of the Institut francais (Fonds d'Alembert), Paris. The conference was part of a larger event, called "the Road to Paris" and organised by the French Embassy to Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa Regional Environment Centre and Network (HoA-REC&N), Addis Ababa University, in HoA-REC&N headquarters at Gullele Botanic Gardens, Addis Ababa, from 7 to 9 April 2015. In this event, our first purpose was to set aside from the pressure of short-term and policy-oriented concerns raised by the international bureaucracies and bilateral donors, as to try to explore diverse, cross-disciplinary dimensions related to environmental change in the region in a wider way, wider in time and also wider in the elements observed. In a way, the Road to Paris event has also showed, with the various stakeholders and speakers it has gathered, that the issue of climate change has "solidified" automatic discourses, supporting wishful intentions and thinking, and clearly embedded in the building of professional opportunities and international careers. These discourses, indeed, are everything but close to the reality observed on the ground. In this new, competitive, social field, priority may not be easily given to scientific exploration that is not directly policy-oriented and that requires a longer time to produce strong data than what the political and bureaucratic agendas allow. One could not state, though, that interest for science is totally absent in these arenas on climate change. But, invariably, public expectations appear to be much too high in scope and in time, compared to what intellectual curiosity and scientific processes and protocols can produce on a day-to-day basis. Improving awareness on environmental changes should start here: to give a better understanding on the complexity and multiplicity of factors involved in the relation between human evolution, societal choices and developments, and natural environments. The French Centre for Ethiopian Studies (CFEE) in Addis Ababa was quite well equipped to initiate, with its partners, such a cross-disciplinary exploration.

Anomalous Magnetic Moment: Source and Explanation

The Carbon Control Knob (National Climate Seminar Book 4)

On November 2, 2011, Richard Alley participated in The National Climate Seminar, a series of webinars sponsored by Bard College's Center for Environmental Policy. The online seminars provide a forum for leading scientists, writers, and other experts to talk about critical issues regarding climate change. The series also opens a public conversation, inviting participants to ask questions and contribute their own thoughts.

Dr. Alley conducts research on the paleoclimatic record at The Pennsylvania State University in order to understand the history, and perhaps the future, of climate change. In his lecture, Alley gave a concise overview of why we know what we know about climate change, and what that evidence can tell us about today's warming planet. Alley not only provides an accessible science lesson, but reveals his own greatest concerns about climate change and offers advice to those who want to stop debating the subtleties of climate science and act now.

This E-ssential is an edited version of Alley's talk and the subsequent question and answer session. While some material has been cut and some language modified for clarity, the intention was to retain the substance of the original discussion.

Elementary Particles: Solving the Antimatter Problem

This paper presents mathematical evidence that the "positron" found in numerous laboratory experiments - is actually a probable version of the muon neutrino, which is ordinary matter, not antimatter. This new evidence is based on the 1024-QAM model as the first Periodic Table for Elementary Particles. There are 16 probable versions of the muon neutrino with one third of the mass of an electron. 4 of these have the same charge-to-mass ratio as a common electron. Another 4 have twice the charge-to-mass as a common electron, but with the opposite charge (+2/3), causing them to move in the opposite direction in a magnetic field. To complicate matters further, note that there are 16 probable versions of an electron, with 4 different charges (0, -1, -1/3, +2/3). A 1024-QAM table was previously presented that graphically displays how all elementary particles are related, similar to the Standard Periodic Table in Chemistry. This paper concludes there is no antimatter available in our universe. All such events can be explained as ordinary matter. A graphical table is provided to show how these "antimatter" particles are related.
