Supply Chain Management: The Dawn Of New Technologies. Supply Chain Collaborations, Cloud Applications, Blockchain Technology

In today's fast-moving business environment, most companies are striving to operate a more dynamic supply chain to respond to rising volatility in customer demands and market conditions. Because supply chains are increasingly powered by information technology, flexible IT-based solutions are an increasingly important part of a supply chain design. Against this background, it is no surprise that the topic of cloud computing is generating intense interest.

History has taught supply chain management organizations one common factor: failure to adjust to societal changes will contribute to business-downfall. In the modern, digital world, the impact of the cloud can be felt in every facet of existence, not just commerce. Cloud computing technology has allowed supply chain management providers to take advantage of a new era of processes, specifically those relating to the ethereal space.

Supply chain activities cover everything from product development, sourcing, production, and logistics, as well as the information systems needed to coordinate these activities.

Traditionally, supply chain management has relied on physical, in-person processes. Throughout the history of supply chains there have been innovations such as the shift to haul freight via trucks rather than rail or the emergence of personal computers in the 1980s that led to dramatic shifts in supply chain management and blockchain technology is an innovation to take supply management to a whole new level.

This Book " Supply Chain Management" will be of a great help to you. Enjoy!

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.

Hubble 25: A Quarter-Century of Discovery with the Hubble Space Telescope

Now 25 years into its trailblazing mission, Hubble's greatest accomplishments to date include helping to uncover black holes in the centers of galaxies, observing changes on planets in our solar system, investigating the atmospheres of planets around stars other than the Sun, seeing disks that are possibly forming new solar systems, and hunting down nascent galaxies in the very early universe. Astronomers have also used Hubble to follow up on the work done almost a century ago by the telescope's namesake, the astronomer Edwin Hubble, whose observations of galaxies revealed that the universe was expanding. Observing with the Hubble telescope, astronomers have refined their calculation for the universe's expansion rate and discovered the existence of a force called dark energy, which is causing the universe to expand faster and faster as time goes on.

The Hubble Space Telescope is an instrument of science -- one of the most productive in history. Thousands of astronomers from around the world have used Hubble to explore nearly every facet of the universe, publishing more than 11,000 scientific papers in the process. Still, the magnificent images Hubble takes have proven time and again their power to capture the hearts and minds of scientists and non-scientists alike. The majestic scenes fire the imagination and inspire awe for the astonishing vastness of the cosmos and all the wonders it contains.

To celebrate Hubble's 25th anniversary, this book presents 25 of the most remarkable images Hubble has acquired so far. They are ordered according to distance from Earth, highlighting Hubble's great range, from observing planets in our own solar system to the stars and galaxies born when the universe was still young.

Each chapter in this book introduces one of Hubble's images and points out some of the features that Hubble's exceptional vision reveals. It also describes a sample of the related scientific research or discoveries achieved with Hubble.

99 pages. Over one hundred spectacular color photos, diagrams and charts.

Procrastination: A Self-Help Cure to Get Things Done, Build Motivation and Break Lazy Habits for Life

***Claim your FREE Bonus Book Inside!***

Procrastination is a thief. It steals your time, it steals quality from your work and it steals money from you. Putting off doing things until they are unsalvageable harms you in more ways than one. It damages your reputation, your health by triggering stress and anxiety, your financial well being and it damages your relationships.

Procrastination is a bad habit, which kind of grows on you and tends to completely destroy you professionally and personally. What starts as a "harmless self-indulgence" can, rather quickly, snowball into a major character flaw that would affect all the important facets of your life. Once it gets you in its grip, you will find that instead of making you happy and relaxed, you feel the exact opposite, i.e. stressed and anxious. This is because you realize that you are supposed to complete certain tasks but cannot bring yourself to do it, for reasons you cannot explain even to yourself. Procrastination starts with giving you pleasure for "stealing time". It allows you to postpone important matters, assuring you that it's "just a harmless pleasure", which you deserve. Gradually, this becomes a monster that causes:

guilt for not doing what is right, when it needs to be done

fear of the consequences because you realize you are risking a lot

stress because you know you cannot catch up or repair the damage easily

anxiety at thinking about the possible damages

helplessness because you feel at some point of time that all is lost

Do you really want to wait this one out? You CAN STOP procrastination. Start today. Start NOW.

Grab this eBook NOW and get the support you need to beat this habit before it destroys you.

In this book you will find advice that will help you to:

recognize understand the reasons why procrastination has become a habit with you

identify the triggers that allow the habit get a grip on you

watch out for the pitfalls that feed the habit

use hacks that will get you rid of the habit

draw a blueprint for an action plan to overcome procrastination

give you workable strategies that ensure the habit never comes back

and much, much more!

Don't allow procrastination to steal the essence from your life. Read this eBook to find ways that will help you win over this dreadful habit.

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.

The Dead Media Notebook: 20th Anniversary Edition

Review

"Mutant media par excellence -- part steampunk abstraction, part Dada art project, part random-access database, and part historico-technical archive. Long live dead media." Sean Matharoo, Science Fiction Studies Issue 128, March 2016

"An excellent resource for scholars and artists working across a wide spectrum of disciplines.... any one of these remarkable notes could be further developed or augmented, and the contributors have done a commendable job peppering their entries with secondary sources for future research. There is absolutely no reason not to download this timely compendium" Sean Matharoo, Science Fiction Studies Issue 128, March 2016

About this book

From Pigeon Post to Magic Lanterns to the Talking View-Master, this book is a compendium of dead and forgotten media formats.

In 1995, Bruce Sterling issued a challenge; "I'll personally offer a CRISP FIFTY-DOLLAR BILL for the first guy, gal, or combination thereof to write and publish THE DEAD MEDIA HANDBOOK."

The handbook would be "a book about media that have died on the barbed wire of technological advance, media that didn't make it, martyred media, dead media... a rich, witty, insightful, profusely illustrated, perfect bound, acid-free-paper coffee-table book... by some really with-it, cutting-edge early-21st century publisher. The kind of book that will appear in seventeen different sections of your local chain store: Political Affairs, Postmodern Theory, Computer Science, Popular Mechanics, Design Studies, the coffee table art book section, the remainder table."

Bruce appealed for help collecting stories and notes about dead media, and over the next five years, notes and suggestions accumulated at deadmedia.org.

But the book never happened. The website has survived, gradually succumbing to link-rot as the Internet evolved and grew around it.

Twenty years later, Bruce's idea is more relevant than ever. As Benedict Evans said "For the first time ever, the tech industry is selling not just to big corporations or middle-class families but to four fifths of all the adults on earth - it is selling to people who don't have mains electricity or running water and substitute spending on cigarettes for mobile."

This collection is not The Dead Media Handbook. It is a lightly edited collection of those nearly 500 notes and contributions. Inside, you'll find lists of early mainframe computers, speculations about the multi-dimensional mental images created by Peruvian knotted-string books, details of Timothy Leary's experiential typewriter and a lengthy analysis of the Viewmaster and it's competitors.

Happiness. The art of living in armony and unity with the self but also with nature: A journey of self-awareness through understanding animal nature

?Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better?

Albert Einstein

Every animal experiences life in a unique way; a way that is so different and yet so similar. It seems that the senses, emotions, intuition and intelligence are not privileges of humans alone. We may use our thinking in a way that is unique compared to the other animals, but in nature there is no single way of knowledge and intelligence. We possess the human way to acquire knowledge and use our intelligence, something that makes us special in a lot of ways. But as every human is special in his or her own way, so is every species. Every species is an independent entity of knowledge, intellect and intelligence on its own. Every species and every being is connected with thousands of other forms of knowledge, which all converge into the tree of knowledge, or nature, or life's Garden of Eden.

Animals speak. They speak a language that we, too, used to speak once but now have forgotten. The myths we narrate, the stories we tell of ourselves, are our new language. But for centuries our myths have been about us; myths that bring us to the state of being the center of the universe, the ultimate purpose of creation.

In the beginning, we saw God in natural phenomena and the heavens. Now is the time to find Him around and inside us; to live as whole beings. Nature and the animals are here to help in this so we can all together be part of the new myth that will bring us closer to Paradise.

Galileo, Darwin, Freud and Jung paved the way and modern science has mapped the human brain with extraordinary precision; we know now exactly how our mind and senses and emotions work. The analogies between us and animals are astonishing. We are not above nature; we are not supernatural. We are a tiny, infinitesimal part of nature in the vastness of the universe; a vastness we are trying to conceive, which is getting even greater and more complex as the human mind evolves. As biologist Lyall Watson writes in his book entitled "Supernature": "We are all of one flesh, drawn from the same crucible... This is the secret of life. It means that there is a continuous communication not only between living things and their environment, but among all things living in that environment. An intricate web of interaction connects all life into one vast, self-maintaining system. Each part is related to every other part and we are all part of the whole."

It really seems that coming into contact with Nature's wisdom opens up new horizons and brings about the emergence of new perspectives in life, and this is not accidental; it is the sense of unity that we have been missing. It is this sense that enables us to live a meaningful life.

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).

The Discovery of Parallel Universes

This short paper presents information into technology that has been used to move between two parallel universes. Described here are the possible technology characteristics of glowing orbs or balls of light, which have been photographed and filmed, all over the world and often near crop circles. By utilizing the blinking frequency of our universe, it is possible to move between universes. These orbs have been reported as glowing and/or pulsing and some appear to be 12 to 14 inches in diameter. The precise value for the blinking frequency of our universe, the Lighthouse Frequency, is estimated at 1.1 THz. Each reader must comprehend that our universe is literally blinking 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.

Supermassive Ancient Galaxies (Trillion Theory Book 7)

Trillion Theory (the new theory by founder/theorist/author Ed Lukowich) is summarized in this book. This new Trillion Theory depicts its estimated ancient trillion year age and origin for our cosmos. Delving deep into humongous galaxies, TT examines the work done by the galaxy builders, which TT purports to be black holes. At the hub of each and every galaxy is a Supermassive black hole which controls all of the millions of solar systems within the galaxy, along with the millions of black holes doing their dutiful tasks of recycling the solar systems for each new 15 billion-year generation. TT says, 'That is why it is near impossible to spot a sun older than 13-14 billion years.; and why astronomers have been mistaken in estimating the age of our cosmos at only 13.7 billion years when viewing the current generation crop of suns and solar systems.' TT states that an ancient Supermassive black hole at the hub of galaxy may have started building its galaxy as far back as 800 billion years in the trillion-year cosmos. While the Supermassive black hole is ancient, its occupant solar systems die and spawn new solar systems once their star reaches the 10-14 billion year age and goes supernova. Our cosmos is akin to a forest which recycles old trees and spawns the next generation of trees. Quadrillions of black holes, varying in a multitude of sizes, are both the builders and the controllers of the solar systems and the galaxies of our immense cosmos. TT says, 'We indeed have plenty to discover and prove about our universe. Trillion Theory is pointing out the direction to be taken.'

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.



Warp Factor 10: Travel Faster than Light

This short technical paper presents the first practical technology solution for traveling faster than the speed of light. Most of the hardware & technology necessary for the first tests have already been developed, although faster computer processors may be required for synchronization. Light-years of distance can be traversed by performing millions of "hops;" yet the entire distance traveled requires only a fraction of a second. Each reader must comprehend that our universe is blinking 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.

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.

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.

Anomalous Magnetic Moment: Source and Explanation

This short technical paper explains the anomalous magnetic moment for all elementary particles and composite particles (such as the proton). The special case regarding the Muon anomaly is addressed. It also presents a summary of the issues in accurately measuring the magnetic dipole moment for elementary particles. The explanation provided involves simple math and probabilities. It is not complex, such as Yang-Mills and related theories. This analysis utilizes the 1024-QAM model, with 4 charges x 4 spins for 16 probabilities for each elementary particle. In summary, there is no anomaly. The measurement of the magnetic moment is a time-averaged value for 16 different particle probabilities. Areas for further research are suggested.

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.

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'.

Foundations of Quantum Theory: From Classical Concepts to Operator Algebras (Fundamental Theories of Physics)

This book studies the foundations of quantum theory through its relationship to classical physics. This idea goes back to the Copenhagen Interpretation (in the original version due to Bohr and Heisenberg), which the author relates to the mathematical formalism of operator algebras originally created by von Neumann. The book therefore includes comprehensive appendices on functional analysis and C*-algebras, as well as a briefer one on logic, category theory, and topos theory., Matters of foundational as well as mathematical interest that are covered in detail include symmetry (and its "spontaneous" breaking), the measurement problem, the Kochen-Specker, Free Will, and Bell Theorems, the Kadison-Singer conjecture, quantization, indistinguishable particles, the quantum theory of large systems, and quantum logic, the latter in connection with the topos approach to quantum theory.This book is Open Access under a CC BY licence.

Melting Hadrons, Boiling Quarks - From Hagedorn Temperature to Ultra-Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions at CERN: With a Tribute to Rolf Hagedorn

This book shows how the study of multi-hadron production phenomena in the years after the founding of CERN culminated in Hagedorn's pioneering idea of limiting temperature, leading on to the discovery of the quark-gluon plasma -- announced, in February 2000 at CERN. Following the foreword by Herwig Schopper -- the Director General (1981-1988) of CERN at the key historical juncture -- the first part is a tribute to Rolf Hagedorn (1919-2003) and includes contributions by contemporary friends and colleagues, and those who were most touched by Hagedorn: Tamas Biro, Igor Dremin, Torleif Ericson, Marek Gazdzicki, Mark Gorenstein, Hans Gutbrod, Maurice Jacob, Istvan Montvay, Berndt Muller, Grazyna Odyniec, Emanuele Quercigh, Krzysztof Redlich, Helmut Satz, Luigi Sertorio, Ludwik Turko, and Gabriele Veneziano. The second and third parts retrace 20 years of developments that after discovery of the Hagedorn temperature in 1964 led to its recognition as the melting point of hadrons into boiling quarks, and to the rise of the experimental relativistic heavy ion collision program. These parts contain previously unpublished material authored by Hagedorn and Rafelski: conference retrospectives, research notes, workshop reports, in some instances abbreviated to avoid duplication of material, and rounded off with the editor's explanatory notes. About the editor: Johann Rafelski is a theoretical physicist working at The University of Arizona in Tucson, USA. Bor n in 1950 in Krakow, Poland, he received his Ph.D. with Walter Greiner in Frankfurt, Germany in 1973. Rafelski arrived at CERN in 1977, where in a joint effort with Hagedorn he contributed greatly to the establishment of the relativistic heavy ion collision, and quark-gluon plasma research fields. Moving on, with stops in Frankfurt and Cape Town, to Arizona, he invented and developed the strangeness quark flavor as the signature of quark-gluon plasma.

Rewilding European Landscapes

Some European lands have been progressively alleviated of human pressures, particularly traditional agriculture in remote areas. This book proposes that this land abandonment can be seen as an opportunity to restore natural ecosystems via rewilding. We define rewilding as the passive management of ecological successions having in mind the long-term goal of restoring natural ecosystem processes. The book aims at introducing the concept of rewilding to scientists, students and practitioners. The first part presents the theory of rewilding in the European context. The second part of the book directly addresses the link between rewilding, biodiversity, and habitats. The third and last part is dedicated to practical aspects of the implementation of rewilding as a land management option. We believe that this book will both set the basis for future research on rewilding and help practitioners think about how rewilding can take place in areas under their management.

Marine Anthropogenic Litter

This book describes how man-made litter, primarily plastic, has spread into the remotest parts of the oceans and covers all aspects of this pollution problem from the impacts on wildlife and human health to socio-economic and political issues. Marine litter is a prime threat to marine wildlife, habitats and food webs worldwide. The book illustrates how advanced technologies from deep-sea research, microbiology and mathematic modelling as well as classic beach litter counts by volunteers contributed to the broad awareness of marine litter as a problem of global significance. The authors summarise more than five decades of marine litter research, which receives growing attention after the recent discovery of great oceanic garbage patches and the ubiquity of microscopic plastic particles in marine organisms and habitats. In 16 chapters, authors from all over the world have created a universal view on the diverse field of marine litter pollution, the biological impacts, dedicated research activities, and the various national and international legislative efforts to combat this environmental problem. They recommend future research directions necessary for a comprehensive understanding of this environmental issue and the development of efficient management strategies. This book addresses scientists, and it provides a solid knowledge base for policy makers, NGOs, and the broader public.

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.

How to Build a Digital Microscope: - Construct a Reliable, Inexpensive Microscope. Black & White Edition.

The microscope is the most important tool in the microbiologists toolbox. Nowadays, several companies sell very well made microscopes, but such a luxury was unknown to the earliest microbiologists. They had to build their own microscopes, and many advancements to the science of microbiology were made by people who managed to improve on their own private microscopes. While basic models have become increasingly affordable in recent years, purchasing a digital microscope can still be a substantial investment - and one that many interested individuals, families, and schools are unwilling or unable to make. Fortunately, it has also become increasingly easy to get the parts for building your very own microscope at a price that is more approachable than that of commercial microscopes! In 'How to build a digital microscope' you will learn how: - the core parts of a microscope works - you can find inexpensive parts for your very own microscope (the core optical and digital components of the cheapest digital microscope presented here can be had for less than $5 at eBay) - you can build your own version of the classical bright field microscope or even a polarizing light microscope which can be used to study minerals and crystals and produce colorful and incredibly beautiful images of crystals at home! The microscope designs presented here offer x100 and x250 magnification and can be made using a webcamera which connects to a computer using USB, or you can opt for using a smartphone to view and record the images. A cheap homebuilt microscope can be extremely good value for money, it will let you explore microscopy at a budget, and building it can be an entertaining and educational project for a family or a young aspiring scientist who gets help from an adult.

At the beginning of the book, a technical review written by a leading researcher of nuclear reactor technology explains what happened at the power plant. The review is followed by a commentary from a former member of the International Commission on Radiological Protection, providing the reader with easily understandable information about the concept of radiation dosage. In the main part of the book, a series of scientific reports presents valuable data on the radiation surveys of the environment, environmental radioactivity, transfer models and parameters of radioactive nuclides and dose assessment among residents. These reports present a wide range of findings from the research carried out in a variety of activities by large governmental organizations as well as by small private groups and individuals. The reader thus will find a large collection of valuable and interesting data related to the environmental contamination by radioactive nuclides after the Fukushima accident. Although earlier reports on this issue have been made public, this book is the only publication to fully depict the actual situation by providing comprehensive data obtained by diverse organizations and individuals.

Demystifying Climate Models: A Users Guide to Earth System Models (Earth Systems Data and Models)

This book demystifies the models we use to simulate present and future climates, allowing readers to better understand how to use climate model results. In order to predict the future trajectory of the Earth's climate, climate-system simulation models are necessary. When and how do we trust climate model predictions? The book offers a framework for answering this question. It provides readers with a basic primer on climate and climate change, and offers non-technical explanations for how climate models are constructed, why they are uncertain, and what level of confidence we should place in them. It presents current results and the key uncertainties concerning them. Uncertainty is not a weakness but understanding uncertainty is a strength and a key part of using any model, including climate models. Case studies of how climate model output has been used and how it might be used in the future are provided. The ultimate goal of this book is to promote a better understanding of the structure and uncertainties of climate models among users, including scientists, engineers and policymakers.

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.

Science and Technology Governance and Ethics: A Global Perspective from Europe, India and China

This book analyzes the possibilities for effective global governance of science in Europe, India and China. Authors from the three regions join forces to explore how ethical concerns over new technologies can be incorporated into global science and technology policies. The first chapter introduces the topic, offering a global perspective on embedding ethics in science and technology policy. Chapter Two compares the institutionalization of ethical debates in science, technology and innovation policy in three important regions: Europe, India and China. The third chapter explores public perceptions of science and technology in these same three regions. Chapter Four discusses public engagement in the governance of science and technology, and Chapter Five reviews science and technology governance and European values. The sixth chapter describes and analyzes values demonstrated in the constitution of the People's Republic of China. Chapter Seven describes emerging evidence from India on the uses of science and technology for socio-economic development, and the quest for inclusive growth. In Chapter Eight, the authors propose a comparative framework for studying global ethics in science and technology. The following three chapters offer case studies and analysis of three emerging industries in India, China and Europe: new food technologies, nanotechnology and synthetic biology. Chapter 12 gathers all these threads for a comprehensive discussion on incorporating ethics into science and technology policy. The analysis is undertaken against the backdrop of different value systems and varying levels of public perception of risks and benefits. The book introduces a common analytical framework for the comparative discussion of ethics at the international level. The authors offer policy recommendations for effective collaboration among the three regions, to promote responsible governance in science and technology and a common analytical perspective in ethics.

Understanding Society and Natural Resources: Forging New Strands of Integration Across the Social Sciences

In this edited volume leading scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds wrestle with social science integration opportunities and challenges. This book explores the growing concern of how best to achieve effective integration of the social science disciplines as a means for furthering natural resource social science and environmental problem solving. The chapters provide an overview of the history, vision, advances, examples and methods that could lead to integration. The quest for integration among the social sciences is not new. Some argue that the social sciences have lagged in their advancements and contributions to society due to their inability to address integration related issues. Integration merits debate for a number of reasons. First, natural resource issues are complex and are affected by multiple proximate driving social factors. Single disciplinary studies focused at one level are unlikely to provide explanations that represent this complexity and are limited in their ability to inform policy recommendations. Complex problems are best explored across disciplines that examine social-ecological phenomenon from different scales.Second, multi-disciplinary initiatives such as those with physical and biological scientists are necessary to understand the scope of the social sciences. Too frequently there is a belief that one social scientist on a multi-disciplinary team provides adequate social science representation. Third, more complete models of human behavior will be achieved through a synthesis of diverse social science perspectives.

Reflections on the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Accident

This book focuses on nuclear engineering education in the post-Fukushima era. It was edited by the organizers of the summer school held in August 2011 in University of California, Berkeley, as part of a collaborative program between the University of Tokyo and UC Berkeley. Motivated by the particular relevance and importance of social-scientific approaches to various crucial aspects of nuclear technology, special emphasis was placed on integrating nuclear science and engineering with social science. The book consists of the lectures given in 2011 summer school and additional chapters that cover developments in the past three years since the accident. It provides an arena for discussions to find and create a renewed platform for engineering practices, and thus nuclear engineering education, which are essential in the post-Fukushima era for nurturing nuclear engineers who need to be both technically competent and trusted in society.

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.

Beyond the Limits to Growth: New Ideas for Sustainability from Japan (Science for Sustainable Societies)

At a time when contemporary challenges seem to many to be insurmountable, this book offers an optimistic view of the future and provides a road map for societies to get there. Drawing upon extensive research and many years as a thought leader in environmental and sustainability issues in Japan and internationally, Hiroshi Komiyama analyzes the most pressing challenges to the attainment of sustainability of economically advanced nations and argues forcefully for Japan to lead them out of the present dilemma through active promotion of creative consumer and societal demand. He shows how an active industry-government-academic partnership can provide the environment needed to promote such new creative demand and illustrates its potential through presentation of a Platinum Society Network that was launched on a regional basis in Japan in 2010 to facilitate the solution of common issues through the exchange of information and ideas. What is perhaps most surprising about the text is its unwavering optimism supported by hard evidence, history, and insightful observation.Problems arising from new paradigms of the 21st century (what the author refers to as "exploding knowledge, limited Earth resources, and aging societies") thwart sustainable development in advanced and developing countries alike. All countries will struggle with issues that evolve from these paradigms including diminishing resources, expanding budget deficits, and growing global environmental problems. This window on potential practical pathways and solutions should be of interest to all those engaged in seeking ways to meet these contemporary challenges.
