Lessons learned in the last several years have given clear indications that the prediction and efficient monitoring of disasters is one of the critical factors in decision-making process. In this respect space-based technologies have the great potential of supplying information in near real time. Earth observation satellites have already demonstrated their flexibility in providing data to a wide range of applications: weather forecasting, person and vehicle tracking, alerting to disaster, forest fire and flood monitoring, oil spills, spread of desertification, monitoring of crop and forestry damages.§This book focuses on a wider utilisation of remote sensing in disaster management. The discussed aspects comprise data access/delivery to the users, information extraction and analysis, management of data and its integration with other data sources (airborne and terrestrial imagery, GIS data, etc.), data standardization, organisational and legal aspects of sharing remote sensing information.
Spagyrics Inner Traditions Bear & Comp
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
The practice of spagyrics is the application of ancient alchemical working methods in the preparation of tinctures, essences and other products from medicinal plants. While ordinary tinctures and infusions use only a part of the great curative potential of plants, spagyric methods "open" medicinal plants completely to reveal their more powerful healing properties. Drawing on the rich imagery and symbolism of ancient source materials, Manfred M. Junius describes these methods in great detail, showing readers how to prepare plant remedies alchemically for their own use as well as imparting a knowledge of the ideological world in which alchemistic and hermetic thought flowered. "Spagyrics" includes the Plant Magistery of Paracelsus and the Life Elixir recipe of Andreas Libavius among its historic techniques as well as a wealth of scientific information that demonstrates the greater efficacy of alchemical methods of plant essence extraction. This classic source text preserves the nearly forgotten but highly valuable methods of this true hermetic art for preparing natural remedies. It shows spagyric methods "open" medicinal plants completely to release powerful healing properties. It provides a history and philosophy of spagyrics that reveal why Western medicine fails to recognise the full benefit to health offered by plants. It connects spagyrics to classical alchemical, hermetic and ayurvedic traditions. This is a new edition of "The Practical Handbook of Plant Alchemy".

Medycyna > English Division
If you are wondering how the pathophysiology principles you are studying will apply to real life patients, "Blueprints Notes & Cases-Pathophysiology: Cardiovascular, Endocrine, and Reproduction" has just what you need-basic science concepts tied to clinical cases! This book offers high-yield, concise basic science content presented in a logical template. Each topic features a case presentation followed by thought questions and a basic science review. Thumbnails and key points provide a quick review of the essential information. Multiple-choice questions at the end of each case allow you to test your knowledge. Use during your coursework to aid in understanding application of principles, then review again as you prep for exams. Perfect for medical students - physician assistants, nurse practitioners and related health professionals will also find Blueprints Notes & Cases valuable. The various pedagogical features in the book (thumbnails, science reviews, Q As) are excellent learning points in this book. A learning model for the Step 1 should include opportunities for students to think on their own and problem solve, with clear, concise explanations provided for a quick, easy way to review their knowledge base. -- 3rd year medical student, Brown Medical School People often get question books, review books, and case/vignette books all separately. this book is great because it has them all in one. ...I would rate this books as one of the best I have used . -- 3rd year medical student, University of California, Irvine This book would provide a great reference because of its detailed explanations and science review. Furthermore, it also incorporates clinical cases thus illustrating the disease more clearly. This is the only book I am aware of that provides both these aspects. The thumbnails at the end of each case are extremely beneficial. They provide a quick resource that students can look at immediately prior to taking the boards. -- 3rd year student, Western University of the Health Sciences I think that this review book is better than the majority of books that are available on the market. I feel that the length and detail in the cases are appropriate for teaching and also mimic some of the case-based learning experiences that occur during the first to years of medical school. -- 3rd year student, State University of New York at Stony Brook School of Medicine I really like the questions at the end. They are thought provoking and force the student to think beyond the scope of what was reviewed in the text. -- 3rd year medical student, Medical College of Virginia The text is very readable and friendly, making it an easy read at the end of the day and ... easier to remember material. -- 3rd year medical student, McGill University
Handbook to Life in Ancient Egypt Oxford University Press Inc
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
The Nile Valley civilization, which spanned a period from c. 5000 B.C. to the early centuries A.D., was one of the earliest created by humankind. This handy reference provides a comprehensive overview of more than five millennia of Egyptian history and archaeology, from predynastic times to the Old and New Kingdoms to the Ptolemaic and Roman periods. Accessible, authoritative, and clearly organized, the Handbook to Life in Ancient Egypt offers an engaging look at a culture whose art and architecture, religion, and medicine would come to form the basis of Western Civilization. The thematically arranged chapters allow readers easy access to particular topics, including historical background, geography, government, religion, funerary customs, architecture, literature, the military, the economy, and everyday life. Drawing on written sources dating from c. 3100 B.C. and historical evidence including monuments, artifacts, inscriptions, and preserved human remains, Rosalie David covers everything from the Sun Cult and the pyramids to the arrival and spread of Christianity. The Handbook contains 112 maps, photographs, and original line drawings, a chronological table, an appendix listing museums with Egyptian collections, and extensive bibliographies included with each chapter. Combining both archaeological and historical sources, the Handbook to Life in Ancient Egypt provides all the essential information required by anyone interested in Egyptian history, archaeology, religions, or culture. In this new edition, the author discusses the latest findings in areas that are currently at the forefront of Egyptological research. A new chapter on Egyptology describes the history of the field, the results of the latest excavations, and the techniques involved in new scientific studies, such as DNA analysis and the tracing of disease patterns. This newly revised edition takes into account the discoveries of the last few years that have led Egyptologists to change their perspective on some aspects of life in ancient Egypt, including a reevaluation of the purpose and functions of the Egyptian temples, the role of the Great Royal Wife, and the possible date and nature of the Biblical Exodus.
