The Last Men in the Last Battles of World War Ii

release date: Mar 12, 2020
The Last Men in the Last Battles of World War Ii
Welcome to a meeting with The Last Men in the Last Battles of World War II. Travel with them as they scale enemy escarpments, attack heavily armed caves and fly in cockpits against Kamikazes, visit them on Pearl Harbor, Guadalcanal, Peliliu, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa, and learn why Admiral Nimitz said, “Among these men uncommon valor was a common virtue.” This book presents selected stories about thousands of Army Infantry, Sailors, Pilots and Marines who fought a brutal enemy. Hear Chaplain Sydney Wood-Cahusac say of those who did not return “Immortality is not our gift to give, but we can recall them as individuals, as human beings, as friends and not just as number.” The Keys, through personal interviews with eleven of these men, their sons, or best friends, have captured stories that present them as real persons with feelings about the war, the enemy and their buddies wounded and dying nearby. Read stories of how Sergeant Major Hank Clark led others to save New Zealand and how Mustang pilot Bill Stringer downed three enemy planes, though badly wounded while sleeping in his cockpit. Some Cam Home captures stories about the men’s families, jobs, joys, and problems after returning home.

The Life of David Lack

release date: Jun 01, 2013
The Life of David Lack
Most people who have taken a biology course in the past 50 years are familiar with the work of David Lack, but few remember his name. Almost all general biology texts produced during that period have a figure showing the beak size differences among the finches of the Galapagos Islands from Lack''s 1947 classic, Darwin''s Finches. Lack''s pioneering conclusions in Darwin''s Finches mark the beginning of a new scientific discipline, evolutionary ecology. Tim Birkhead, in his acclaimed book, The Wisdom of Birds, calls Lack the ''hero of modern ornithology.'' Who was this influential, yet relatively unknown man? The Life of David Lack, Father of Evolutionary Ecology provides an answer to that question based on Ted Anderson''s personal interviews with colleagues, family members and former students as well as material in the extensive Lack Archive at Oxford University.

Rheumatology

release date: Mar 15, 2013

Biology of the Ubiquitous House Sparrow

release date: Aug 10, 2006
Biology of the Ubiquitous House Sparrow
After the chicken, the House Sparrow is the most widely distributed bird species in the world, occurring on all continents except Antarctica and on most human-inhabited islands. Although its Latin name is Passer domesticus, it is certainly not domesticated. In fact, it is widely regarded as a pest species and is consequently not protected in most of its extensive range. This combination of ubiquity and minimal legal protection has contributed to its wide use in studies by avian biologists throughout the world. The purpose of this book is to review and summarize the results of these global studies on House Sparrows, and to provide a springboard for future studies on the species. House Sparrows have been used to study natural selection in introduced species, circadian rhythms, and the neuroendocrine control of the avian annual cycle. One current question of considerable interest concerns the catastrophic House Sparrow population declines in several urban centers in Europe. Is the House Sparrow a contemporary canary in the mine? Other topics of broad interest include the reproductive and flock-foraging strategies of sparrows, and sexual selection and the function of the male badge in the species. Anderson also explores the role of the House Sparrow in disease transmission to humans and their domesticated animals.

Incidence and Economic Burden of Injuries in the United States

release date: Apr 20, 2006
Incidence and Economic Burden of Injuries in the United States
Injuries are one of the most serious public health problems facing the United States today. Through premature death, disability, medical cost and lost productivity, injuries impact the health and welfare of all Americans. Deaths only begin to tell the story. Although many injuries are minor, a large proportion result in fractures, amputations, burns, or other significant injuries that have far-reaching consequences. Now, for the first time in over 15 years, we have comprehensive estimates of the impact of these injuries in economic terms. This book updates a landmark Report to Congress from 1989. Since the report, no undertaking has addressed the incidence and economic burden of injuries with more timely data, despite major changes in the fields of prevention, reporting, and surveillance. Since the mid-eighties, new safety technologies have been developed to prevent injuries or to decrease the severity of injuries, and new policies and laws have been enacted to promote injury prevention. Chapter topics include incidence by detailed categorizations, lifetime medical costs and productivity losses as a result of injuries, and a discussion of recent trends. Lavishly illustrated with tables and graphs, this volume is a valuable reference for public health practitioners, researchers, and students alike.

Wind Power

release date: Jan 01, 2012
Wind Power
Over the past 30 years, wind energy has evolved from a small industry active in a few countries to a large international industry involving major players in the manufacturing, development, and utility sectors. Coinciding with the industry growth, significant innovation in the technology has resulted in larger sized turbines with lower associated costs of energy and more complex designs in all subsystems, from the rotor to the drivetrain to the electronics and control systems. However, as deployment of the technology grows and its role within the electricity sector has become more prominent, so have the expectations of the technology in terms of performance, reliability, and cost. This book surveys the landscape of systems engineering methods and catalogues the various existing modelling tools that relate to the design of wind energy systems from components to entire plants.

The third section examines populations with special needs, including homeless people whose numbers have risen in recent years - due in part to their expulsion from institutional care. Finally, the volume discusses the future of mental health policy and practice, which will be influenced by technology and shifts in funding to manage

Flannery O'Connor

release date: Jan 01, 1997
Flannery O'Connor
This volume draws on the author''s six-year correspondence with Flannery O''Connor in this evaluation of the Southern writer as an intellectual and as a student of the Western tradition in literature and religion. He emphasizes her deep connection with writers such as Joyce and Bernanos in the context of the Modernist tradition, and discusses how her study of these religious writers influenced her visions of world apocalypse and religious community. The author studies the revealed tensions and interrelationships of O''Connor''s "secular intellect" versus her "religious intellect."

Ants

release date: Jan 01, 2000
Ants
Numbering more than nine thousand described species, ants rank among the most abundant and widespread groups. The collective weight of ants in tropical forests and grasslands may constitute as much as 10 to 15 percent of the animal biomass. Ground-dwelling ants are major invertebrate predators in some areas, and they also have profound effects on flora because of their prodigious ability to consume plants, disperse seeds, and enrich the soil. Interacting with other organisms at every level, ants are ubiquitous, diverse, easy to collect, and sensitive to environmental change -- all attributes that make them well suited to biodiversity studies. Written by thirty leading ant biologists, this comprehensive book describes procedures for surveying the diversity of ground-dwelling ants. It introduces a standardized protocol for collecting ant samples in any part of the world and for conducting repeated sampling over time, which enables researchers to analyze global and longterm patterns. Chapters compare ant diversity to the diversity of other organisms and explain the value of ant studies in monitoring ecosystem change in diverse regions, including Madagascar, Malaysia, India, and Brazil. Covering aspects of ant ecology and taxonomy, species identification, specimen preparation, and sources of sampling equipment, this book provides the necessary foundation for readers from a wide range of backgrounds. It is indispensable not only to ant researchers but also to entomologists, conservationists, students, land managers, and others who assess biodiversity or environmental impacts.
