Principles of Brownfield Regeneration
S$ 39.00
Kobo
The US. EPA defines brownfields as "idle real property, the development or improvement of which is impaired by real or perceived contamination." The authors of Principles of Brownfield Regeneration argue that, compared to "greenfields"-farmland, forest, or pasturelands that have never been developed-brownfields offer a more sustainable land development choice. They believe that brownfields are central to a sustainable planning strategy of thwarting sprawl, preserving or regenerating open space, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and reinvesting in urbanized areas. This is the first book to provide an accessible introduction to the design, policy, and technical issues related to brownfield redevelopment. After defining brownfields and advocating for their redevelopment, the book describes the steps for cleaning up a site and creating viable land for development or open space. Land use and design considerations are addressed in a separate chapter and again in each of five case studies that make up the heart of the volume: The Steel Yard, Providence, RI; Assunpink Greenway, Trenton, NJ; June Key Community Center Demonstration Project, Portland, OR; Eastern Manufacturing Facility, Brewer, ME; and The Watershed at Hillsdale, Portland, OR. Throughout, the authors draw on interviews with people involved in brownfield projects as well as on their own considerable expertise.

A mystic and prolific poet and writer, ?A?ishah composed more works in Arabic than any other woman before the 20th century.

S$ 119.30 S$ 132.50
Kobo
This book explains the legal principles and rules, concepts and developments that underpin the practice of financial law in common law countries, and by extension across the world. One of the aims of the book is to explain clearly the basis of the concepts applied by the common law to financial transactions. As part of this aim the second edition analyses in more detail the interface between common-law and civil law approaches in areas such as the distinction between property and personal rights. Additionally, the chapter on Contractual Interpretation has been broadened in scope so that it deals with common law judicial methodology in a wider sense, and treats the question of interpretation as part of that wider approach. Since the last edition was written there have been a number of major changes, not least relating to the ongoing challenges following the financial crisis. In Chapter 2 the material on the Euro has been expanded to explain the Eurozone crisis, and its consequences. Additionally, there is a new section on virtual currencies. This is an essential work for both experienced lawyers and those who are relatively new to international financial law. It provides the more experienced lawyer with an aide memoire on the existing law and a reference source for new ideas when tackling innovative structures or products. For those new to practice or postgraduate students this book delivers a firm foundation upon which to build knowledge of the law and practice of financial law.

Celebrated diarist, famous womaniser, Tory MP and controversial minister - a castle-owning toff and lecherous cad to some, to others a colourful and life-enhancing figure - Alan Clark was politically incorrect before the term was invented.

Ion Trewin has had unrestricted access to extensive family papers (including twenty years of unpublished diaries).

Principles of Food Processing
S$ 138.20 S$ 153.60
Kobo
The approach to teaching the concepts of food processing to the undergrad- uate food science major has evolved over the past 40 years. In most under- graduate food science curricula, food processing has been taught on a commodity basis. In many programs, several courses dealt with processing with emphasis on a different commodity, such as fruits and vegetables, dairy products, meat products, and eggs. In most situations, the emphasis was on the unique characteristics of the commodity and very little empha- sis on the common elements associated with processing of the different commodities. Quite often the undergraduate student was allowed to select one or two courses from those offered in order to satisfy the minimum standards suggested by the Institute of Food Technologists. The current 1FT minimum standards suggest that the undergradu- ate food science major be required to complete at least one food processing course. The description of this course is as follows: One course with lecture and laboratory which covers general characteristics of raw food materials, principles offood preserva- tion, processing factors that influence quality, packaging, water and waste management, and sanitation. Prerequisites: general chemistry, physics, and general microbiology.

Principles of seismic velocities and time-to-depth conversion
S$ 194.60 S$ 229.00
Kobo
Despite its fundamental importance for acquiring an accurate picture of the subsurface, the topic of time-to-depth conversion on the basis of true propagation velocities has never been addressed in the form of a comprehensive, dedicated book. The present book has long been overdue for bridging this obvious gap in geoscience. Geophysicists proficient in data processing fully appreciate that depth imaging, despite the excellence achieved in data quality and lateral positioning, does not amount to true or accurate depth conversion. This is because modelling "velocities" in processing (described in the book as "pro-velocities") can often be quite different from the actual propagation velocities. The many forms of velocities, their interrelationships, their derivation, their assessment and the various factors that could affect their stability and accuracy, are all thoroughly covered. Common misconceptions are brought to notice. The main thrust is for the use of these velocities for time-todepth conversion. Extensive details of depth conversion procedures are established, together with velocity models, each to suit the various depth conversion situations arising in practice. Factors affecting depth conversion results and estimation of the associated uncertainty are extensively covered. Clarity and simplicity of presentation and practical applicability are a prime consideration. Demystifying some topics that are vague to a majority of geoscientists (e.g. anisotropy) also receives ample attention. The book is written for the interpretation geophysicist working in exploration and development, for the seismic processor seeking a wider perspective on the quality of output and on the provision of the data to help the "frontline" geoscientist, for the geologist using geophysical methods as a tool at various levels of detail in the evaluation of the subsurface, and for the geoscientist at large.

Born and raised in Liverpool, as a teenager Lennon became involved in the skiffle craze; his first band, the Quarrymen, evolved into the Beatles in 1960. When the group disbanded in 1970, Lennon embarked on a solo career that produced the critically acclaimed albums John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band and Imagine, and iconic songs such as "Give Peace a Chance" and "Working Class Hero". Lennon revealed a rebellious nature and acerbic wit in his music, writing, drawings, on film and in interviews. Controversial through his political and peace activism, he moved to Manhattan in 1971, where his criticism of the Vietnam War resulted in a lengthy attempt by Richard Nixon's administration to deport him, while some of his songs were adopted as anthems by the anti-war movement and the larger counterculture. Rolling Stone ranked him the fifth-greatest singer of all time. He was posthumously inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1987 and into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.

The Social Life of Tibetan Biography
S$ 128.60 S$ 142.80
Kobo
The Social Life of Tibetan Biography explores the creation of Tibetan religious authority in Tibetan cultural areas throughout East, Inner, and South Asia through engaging with the relationship between textual biography and social community in the case of the Eastern Tibetan yogi Tokden Shakya Shri (1853-1919). It explores the different mechanisms used by Shakya Shri's community in the creation of his biographical portrait to develop his lineage, including the use of biographical tropes, details of interpersonal connections, educational and patronage networks, and representations of sacred site creation and maintenance. In doing so, this study decenters Tibetan and Himalayan religious history through recognizing that peripheries could act as alternative centers of authority for diverse Tibetan Buddhist communities.

Camilla, a Biography of Camilla Eyring Kimball
S$ 17.00 S$ 21.20
Kobo
Camilla Eyring was born in 1894 in the Mormon colonies of northern Mexico. At seventeen she fled with her family from the dangers of revolution and was sent alone to Utah to finish high school and earn her own way in the world. As a young schoolteacher, she met and married Spencer Kimball whilst he waited to be called into military service in World War I. After twenty-five years of rearing a family and supporting her husband in his business, civic, and Church responsibilities, she found herself in 1943 as the wife of an apostle and, in 1973, the wife of the prophet and president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Camilla tells her story, often in her own words, recounting her heritage, her high-spirited youth, and her struggles and triumphs as wife, mother, citizen, and individual. The authors have drawn on autobiographical writings, journals, interviews, and personal acquaintance to tell in fascinating detail of her childhood in Mexico, her maturing years in Utah, her marriage and family experiences in Arizona, and her travels with her husband in the interest of the Mormon Church throughout the world. The book is packed with human interest: her childhood fear that she was going insane; her father's plural marriage; flight from Mexican revolutionaries; the insecurities of a poor but proud teenage girl; a whirlwind courtship and marriage; the terror of having a child stricken with polio; the frightening responsibility of wife of a General Authority; the exhilaration of travel; the anguish of watching her husband suffer through numerous physical infirmities. The woman who emerges is shy but warm, highly intelligent, refreshingly candid, deeply faithful, independent to a fault, unswervingly loyal, and reassuringly human.

Thalassaemia: The Biography
S$ 33.70 S$ 37.40
Kobo
Thalassaemia is the most common type of genetic disorder in the human population, and one of the first whose genetic basis was established. Written by Sir David Weatherall, an expert in molecular medicine and the founder of the Institute of Molecular Medicine in Oxford, this tells the story of early reports of the disease, historical accounts, the identification of the disease as having an inherited basis, early work on thalassaemia as a disorder of the synthesis of haemoglobin, and from the 1960s with the rise of molecular biology, the study of the condition at the DNA level. The commonality of the disease raised an important evolutionary question: if thalassaemia is a genetic disorder then why hasn't it been selected out? Why does it persist, especially in Mediterranean populations? The great geneticist JBS Haldane suggested a reason - that carriers might be more resistant to malaria. Now that we have much more detailed understanding of the molecular basis of this set of diseases, has Haldane proved to be right? Weatherall shows that Haldane turns out to have been partially right. The book ends with recent improvements in treatment that have transformed patients' lives and a general assessment of how molecular approaches are impacting on medicine. Thalassaemia: the biography is part of the Oxford series, Biographies of Disease, edited by William and Helen Bynum. In each individual volume an expert historian of medicine tells the story of a particular disease or condition throughout history - not only in terms of growing medical understanding of its nature and cure, but also shifting social and cultural attitudes, and changes in the meaning of the name of the disease itself.

Velocities, time-imaging and depth-imaging; principles and methods
S$ 136.70 S$ 160.70
Kobo
There are numerous textbooks and publications on seismic processing, and in particular migration. However, we do not know of any work giving an overview of the many types of 'velocities' used in Seismics and how they relate to the different methods involved in the creation of the seismic image. This text reviews the imaging methods used in the oil and gas industry today, with a unique emphasis on this relationship between imaging and velocity. It addresses imaging in both time and depth domains, spanning the range of complexity from NMO correction to sophisticated pre-stack migrations. Recent tools, such as inversion and demigration, and new directions, e.g. accounting for anisotropy have also been tackled. The work is comprehensively illustrated with a total of more than 200 figures. The book should therefore be of interest to students looking for a complete introduction to seismic imaging techniques and their respective theoretical and practical merits and limitations. It is equally written to serve as a reference book for industry professionals, both generalists and specialists, who wish to revise standard techniques or take a look at some of the newer developments. In particular, interpreters, who participate in more and more tasks involving seismic velocities, will find answers to many of the questions which arise when, for example, tying seismic images to wells, creating post- and pre-stack time migration velocity fields, building a velocity model for depth migration or simply converting maps from time to depth.

Based on reader feedback (including yours!), we may expand this book in the future. If we do so, we'll send a free copy to all previous buyers. About THE BOOKJodi Picoults career began with the DC Comics Wonder Woman series, and she has since become one of the world's best known authors. Her first novel, Nineteen Minutes, shot to the number one position on the New York Times Bestsellers List when it was published in 2007, paving the way for the impressive body of work that has followed. Picoult was born in Nesconset, Long Island, to two non-practising Jewish parents. Even at a very young age, Picoult demonstrated her love for writing and wrote a story titled "The Lobster Which Misunderstood." Aged thirteen years old, she moves from Nesconset to New Hampshire and continued to demonstrate her love for writing throughout her high school years. Excerpt From THE BOOKPicoult requested that straps be added to Wonder Womans bustier, but her suggestion was politely turned down. Picoult then took a different angle to strengthening the character; she chose to endow her with a little more intelligence, and created stories that allowed Wonder Woman to rescue the guys, rather than being helped by them. When she left DC Comics, Picoult felt as though Wonder Woman was ". headed in the right direction. Picoult's literary successes in novels appeared to dwindle for around a decade after she gave birth, but this was only due to her change in approach to the characters she wanted to represent. Picoult described herself as taking a more maternalistic and empathetic approach to those she wanted to write about, and it was from this point that she began researching her books intricately. Picoult's first heartbreaking novel, Nineteen Minutes, tells the story of a child who goes on a nineteen minute rampage with a hand gun, killing his cl

Dear Hanna-A biography of pacifist Martin J. Zimmer based on letters from the Eastern Front during WW II by Rudolf Alois Zimmer, is a rare eyewitness account of the plight of both civilians and soldiers affected by the military operations in the mud and freezing temperatures of the Eastern Front during WW II. Hanna's husband, Martin J. Zimmer, is a pacifist who, through his observations, reveals a profound understanding of what it should mean to be human. His world is not a world of war, but simply one to be shared with his beloved wife and their three children. Martin is conscripted into the German army and sent off as an army engineer to fight on the Russian Front. A quirk of fate or luck allows him to be reassigned to the Bakery Company of the 10th Motorized Infantry Division. Surrounded by members of the Nazi Party, he is forced to send letters in secret to his wife, Hanna; his private musings would be considered seditious and dangerous. His letters record events on an almost daily basis from 1941 to 1945, starting with the German offensive on Moscow, the Kursk offensive, the battles of Orel and Kirovograd, the retreat through the Ukraine, Rumania, and Poland to the last defence in Czechoslovakia. It culminates with the narrator's imprisonment in a POW camp in Auschwitz. After years of courage, uncertainty, and unbelievable luck, Martin eventually returns safely to his soulmate, Hanna, and his three children. His letters and journal speak with the voice of one man who quietly resisted the lucrative offerings of a brutal regime and remained true to his beliefs, both as a Christian and a pacifist.

Biography of Bobby Collins Sr.
S$ 15.60
Kobo
The goal and motivation for publishing this book is to promote pride, faith, importance of goals, education, and achievement. I was blessed to have a great extended family and wonderful children: Bobby Jr. and Alicia and the greatest wife a man could be blessed to have. Most of my work as related to community service was motivated out of concerns for my children and all children of this world and my late wife's concern for the safety and welfare of her children. My other motivation was to prove a false negative wrong, that being if you are not a person of privilege one will never attain your dreams and goals, and to do the best job possible so that individuals coming behind me would find open doors free of stumbling blocks. The other part of that message was that if one does find stumbling blocks, to respond by using them as stepping stones because life produces negative situations, but never let anything or anybody break your desire to achieve your goals. A message to all youth that may read this book is that life owes you nothing other than an equal opportunity. Also, I subscribe to the adage that you may not get all you pay for, but you must pay for all you get. I may not sell many books, but if my book motivates and saves one life, mission accomplished! Get a good education and be prepared when opportunity comes knocking, as my uncle Robert "Bob" Collins (my hero) told me: "Set goals and have a plan on how to achieve them." One of the most defining events was the day I received my associate's degree in Business Administration from the greatest community college (Lewis and Clark Community College) in the country. That degree opened many doors for me and my family.

He was most recognized for his conduct and constant position on the "moral high ground" in his fight, as a "shepherd" of his people, against the opium trade in Guangzhou. Although the non-medicinal consumption of opium was banned by the Yongzheng Emperor in 1729. By the 1830s, China's economy and society were being seriously affected by huge imports of opium from British and other foreign traders based in the city. Lin's forceful opposition to the trade on moral and social grounds was considered to be the primary catalyst for the First Opium War of 1839C42. Because of this firm stance, he had subsequently been considered as a role model for moral governance, revered by Chinese people.

Building the Fit Organization: Six Core Principles for Making Your Company Stronger, Faster, and More Competitive

Winner of The Shingo Research and Professional Publication Award! Everyone knows that in order to reach optimum levels of health, you have to exercise-and that you have to keep at it, day after day after day. No big secret here. It's the same with process improvement, and, specifically, lean processes. Everything there is to know about Lean has been revealed. Countless books, articles, and seminars provide business leaders all the information they need to understand how lean works and how effective it can be when fully implemented. Again, not a secret. Why, then, do companies invariably fail in their pursuit of operational excellence? The same reason people fail to trim fat through exercise. They don't do it. They try to squeeze it into their schedule; they don't make it part of their schedule. And, inevitably, it becomes less of a priority. In the same vein, too many business leaders see process improvement as a project, something separate from the more "pressing" goals of profits and growth. That's where they go wrong. And that's where Building the Fit Organization comes in. In this practical, hands-on guide Markovitz walks you step by step through the process of making lean as intrinsic to your company as the pursuit of profits. You will learn how to make an unshakeable commitment to increasing the value provided by doing the right work in the right way with continuous monitoring of processes and structured coaching for everyone. You don't need another book about lean. What you need to learn is how to make process improvement your company's purpose. Like a serious athlete, you're warmed up. You know what lean is and how it can help your organization. Now it's time to perform. Building the Fit Organization is the next step to creating a company that can compete on the toughest of playing fields.

Ushering in the 'scientific revolution' of Galileo and Newton, Descartes' ideas have also set the agenda for debate ever since.

AO ASIF Principles in Spine Surgery

This book has become necessary as a consequence of the rapid expansion of the surgical procedures and implants available for spinal surgery within the "AO Group". We have not attempted to write an in-depth book on spinal surgery, but one which will help the surgeon in the use of AO concepts and implants. We con- sider the practical courses held all over the world essential for the teaching of sound techniques so that technical complications and poor results can be avoid- ed for both the surgeon and, in particular the patient. This book is a practical manual and an outline of what is taught in the courses. It is intended to help the young spinal surgeon to understand the correct use of AO implants. The indi- tions given will aid the correct use of each procedure. . It must be strongly emphasized that surgery of the spine is technically de- manding. The techniques described in this book should only be undertaken by surgeons who are trained and experienced in spinal surgery. Certain techniques, in particular pedicle screw fIxation and cages, have not yet been fully approved by the FDA in the United States. However, throughout the rest of the world, the use of pedicle screws has become a standard technique for the spine surgeon, since it has been shown to improve fIxation techniques and allow segmental correction of the spine. The use of cages has become more and more popular, specifIcally as a tool of minimally invasive spinal surgery.

The Eight Principles of Doing Business with Collaboration in the Earth
S$ 6.80 S$ 7.60
Kobo
This book should be read by sole proprietors, LLCs. Private corporations, public corporations, SMEs, NGOs, church leaders, and leaders of nations. This book is timely for our world that is going through perilous times. The title of the book is The Eight Principles of Doing Business with Collaboration in the Earth. Collaboration is normally considered when national disasters prevail. Our world has been going through financial disasters, social disasters, and health disasters. As a result, the nations of the world, whatever size or status, must embrace collaboration as proposed in this book. Gen. 4:6-9 (Nkjv) records how we may behave. 6) So the Lord said to Cain, "Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? 7) "If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it." 8) Now Cain talked with Abel his brother; and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him. 9) Then the Lord said to Cain, "Where is Abel your brother?" He said, "I do not know. Am I my brother's keeper?" This book offers through the Word of God that we are our brother's keeper. When we do business in the earth, we must choose collaboration to replenish the earth with the eight principles: benefit, uniqueness, strategy, innovation, necessity, execution, success, and sustainability.

Biography of Jim Morrison
S$ 4.20
Kobo
About THE Book Rock star, poet, filmmaker, and self-proclaimed shaman - Jim Morrison is the archetype of the modern rock star. As lead singer of the celebrated 1960s rock band The Doors, Morrison electrified audiences with his wild front man persona. Defiantly strutting the stage in his trademark leather pants, Morrison scowled, smiled, whispered and screamed his way to rock star immortality, a spellbinding entertainer at the pinnacle of his art. Morrisons primal scream was an invitation to the other side - the Jungian collective unconscious of dreams and nightmares. He advocated an all-out pursuit of personal freedom. As a symbol, Morrison is the blueprint for the modern rock star, a sultry rebel oozing sex and danger. Morrison is one of the most influential singer-songwriters in music history. As the poet punk of his time - The Doors were arguably historys first punk rock band, if not in sound then certainly in style and philosophy - Morrison influenced a long line of talented poet-musicians. Just as Elvis Presley influenced a generation of musicians, the anarchic spirit of Jim Morrison lives on. Personifying an aggressive punk rock ethos, Morrison changed rock music forever. Meet THE Author Published poetry and short stories while working as a newspaper journalist. After selling gas masks and chopping wood in an industrial lumberyard, quit job to finish college.

Musical Biography
S$ 77.20 S$ 85.70
Kobo
Musical biography has rarely been an object of theoretical and methodological reflection. Our present-day perception of the lives of prominent composers and performers of the past has been largely formed by cultural and political assumptions of nineteenth-century biographers and their twentieth-century followers. While older biographies are being scrutinized for veracity and 'updated' with new evidence, their historiographical premisses and narrative techniques remain largely unchallenged. The epistemological upheavals in the humanities since the 1960s have generated a body of theoretical thought that has undermined many of the assumptions of traditional biography. Consequently, many of these assumptions have lost their hold as viable underpinnings for present-day scholarly biography. For example, the accumulation of facts is no longer believed to bring us closer to an understanding of the subject; nor are the traditional views of the unified self and the self as a foundational idea taken for granted. This volume brings together musicologists and historians who explore, through individual case studies, the rich potential of these new theories for writing musical lives. The authors of this volume examine how the insights provided by these theories illuminate our critical reassessment of older biographies - and the interpretations of musical works these biographies were used to construe - and help forge new approaches to musical biography. The authors also explore the functions musical biographies served in different historical contexts, the relevance of biography for musical criticism, the reliability of archival evidence, the ethics of biography, the demands placed on biography by feminist and gender history, and the new possibilities offered by cinema. The contributors to this volume challenge the view that biography has little importance for music history, analysis, and criticism. Collectively, they reassert biography's centrality and relevance, and dem

Theoretical Principles of Distance Education

According to Unesco statistics, 10 million of the world's 600 million students study at a distance. Theoretical Principles of Distance Education seeks to lay solid foundations for the education of these students and for the structures within which they study. As a more industrialised form of education provision, distance education is well adapted to the use of new communication technologies, and brings to education many of the strengths and dangers of post-industrialism. The central focus of the study of distance education is the placing of the student at home or at work and the justification of the abandonment in this form of education of interpersonal, face-to-face communication, previously considered to be a cultural imperative for education in both east and west. This book explores the problems that distance education poses to the theorist, bringing together an international team of distance educators to address these issues for the first time in a systematic way. The team comprises theoreticians, administrators, experts in educational technology and adult education, experts in learning from video machines, from computers and other forms of technology. Contributions from Italy, and Scandinavia contrast with viewpoints provided by scholars from the US, Canada, Australia, and the UK.

Must-Read Biographies Everyone Should Include into their Personal Collection

Biographies provide a glimpse into the past or capture the life and experiences of an icon, allowing readers to walk in someone else’s shoes. A meaningful biography can serve as a great teacher, offering valuable life lessons and teaching readers to be like the subject or sometimes, not to be like the subject.

Noteworthy biography recommendations that everyone should own, or at least read about, are mentioned below.
