Zero-Carbon Energy Kyoto 2011: Special Edition of Jointed by Seiji Ikkatai, Haruki Tsuchiya (auth.), Takeshi Yao (eds.)

By Seiji Ikkatai, Haruki Tsuchiya (auth.), Takeshi Yao (eds.)

Since 2008, the worldwide heart of Excellence (COE) at Kyoto college, Japan, has been engaged in a application known as “Energy technology within the Age of world Warming—Toward a CO2 Zero-Emission strength System.” Its target is to set up a world schooling and study platform to foster educators, researchers, and coverage makers who can boost applied sciences and suggest rules for setting up a CO2 zero-emission society now not depending on fossil fuels. it really is renowned that the power challenge can't easily be classified a technological one, because it can also be deeply concerned with social and financial matters. The institution of a “low-carbon power technology” as an interdisciplinary box integrating social sciences with usual sciences is critical. the worldwide COE is starting off a zero-emission know-how roadmap and is selling socioeconomic reviews of power, stories of recent applied sciences for renewable energies, and study for complicated nuclear power. It has additionally confirmed the worldwide COE Unit for power technological know-how schooling to help younger researchers as they practice their abilities and information and a vast foreign standpoint to reply to problems with power and the surroundings in our societies. Comprising the court cases of the 3rd foreign Symposium of the worldwide COE software, this publication follows at the previous volumes Zero-Carbon strength Kyoto 2009 and 2010, released in March 2010 and February 2011, respectively.

during this full of life examine a undying notion, Ball presents the 1st complete background of our fascination with the unseen. This sweeping narrative strikes from medieval spell books to the most recent nanotechnology, from fairy stories to telecommunications, from camouflage to ghosts to the sunrise of nuclear physics and the invention of darkish power.  Along the way in which, Invisible tells little-known tales approximately medieval monks who blamed their misdeeds on spirits; the Cock Lane ghost, which intrigued either Samuel Johnson and Charles Dickens; the makes an attempt through Victorian scientist William Crookes to notice forces utilizing tiny windmills; novelist Edward Bulwer-Lytton’s trust that he was once unseen whilst in his dressing dress; and army efforts to enlist magicians to conceal tanks and ships in the course of WWII.  Bringing in such voices as Plato and Shakespeare, Ball offers not just a systematic background yet a cultural one—showing how our simultaneous wish for and suspicion of the invisible has fueled invention and the mind's eye for centuries.

during this strange and smart booklet, Ball indicates that our fantasies approximately being unseen—and seeing the unseen—reveal striking truths approximately who we're.

High-Pressure Science and Technology: Volume 1: Physical by H. G. Drickamer (auth.), K. D. Timmerhaus, M. S. Barber

By H. G. Drickamer (auth.), K. D. Timmerhaus, M. S. Barber (eds.)

High strain has develop into a easy variable in lots of components of technology and engineering. It extends from disciplines of geophysics and astrophysics via chemistry and physics to these of recent biology, electric and chemical engineering. This breadth has been well-known for a while, however it used to be now not till the early 1960's that a global staff of scientists and engineers validated the organization Internationale for study and development of excessive strain technology and know-how (AIRAPT) for bringing those numerous facets of excessive strain jointly at a world convention. the 1st AIRAPT overseas excessive strain convention used to be held in 1965 in France and has been convened at nearly to 3­ 12 months durations considering that point. The previous 4 AIRAPT foreign excessive strain meetings were held in Germany, Scotland, Japan and the U.S.S.R. because the first assembly of this type, our realizing of excessive strain habit of actual structures has elevated greatly.

History: Fiction or Science?, Volume 4 by Anatoly T. Fomenko, Gleb V. Nosovskiy

By Anatoly T. Fomenko, Gleb V. Nosovskiy

Why, oh why the mainstream historians don't gratify favorite mathematician health care provider Fomenko with laurels, yet name the insurrection police? for instance, the English historians rage on the advice that the heritage of historical England used to be de facto a Byzantine import transplanted to the English soil by means of the fugitive Byzantine the Aristocracy. As te signal of popularity of the particular position of the English historians who give some thought to themselves the real scribes of worldwide background, the canopy of the current e-book portrays Tintoretto's Jesus Christ crucified at the great Ben. The Russian historians model all of it as pseudoscience: simply because Dr Fomenko asserts that there has been no such factor because the Tartar and Mongol invasion through over centuries of slavery, delivering an impressive physique of documental facts to turn out his statement. The so-called 'Tartars and Mongols' have been the particular ancestors of the fashionable Russians, dwelling in a trilingual nation with Arabic and Turkic spoken as freely as Russian. the traditional Russian nation was once ruled by way of a double constitution of civil and army experts and the hordes have been really specialist armies with a practice of lifelong conscription (the recruitment being the so-called 'blood tax'). Their 'invasions' have been punitive operations opposed to the areas that tried tax evasion. Dr Fomenko proves that legitimate Russian historical past is a blatant forgery concocted through a bunch of German students dropped at Russia by means of the usurper dynasty of the Romanovs. Their ascension to the throne used to be the results of conspiracy, so that they charged those German imports historians with the noble challenge of constructing Romanovs reign glance valid. Dr Fomenko proves Ivan the bad to be a collation of 4 rulers, no much less. those rulers represented the 2 rival dynasties - the valid Godounovs and the formidable Romanov upstarts. the eu historians fume simply because Fomenko blows consensual Russian historical past to smithereens, effectively elimination a vital cornerstone from beneath the differently impeccable edifice of global background. in line with Dr Fomenko all medieval ecu Kings and Princes have been yet breakaway vice-regents and vassals of the worldwide Empire who badly wanted excellent and intensely old earlier in an effort to legitimize their independence from the Empire. Dr Fomenko provides insult to harm, wiping out one after the other: the traditional Rome: the basis of Rome in Italy is dated to the 14th century A. D., the traditional Greece and its quite a few poleis, which he identifies because the mediaeval crusader settlements at the territory of Greece, the traditional Egypt: the pyramids of Giza develop into dated to the eleventh to 14th century A. D. and pointed out because the royal cemetery of the worldwide Empire, no much less. The civilization of the traditional Egypt is irrefutably dated to the eleventh to fifteenth century A. D. following the step forward in interpreting of the traditional Egyptian horoscopes minimize in stone. Arabic historians may well locate a few comfort within the the most important historic function of the Ottoman Empire within the sixteenth - seventeenth century. the difficulty is this empire was once at the start a proto-Christian country, with Hagia Sophia identifiable as Temple of Solomon, yet inbuilt 1550-1557 A.D. by way of Sultan Suleiman in accordance with Fomenko! The Divinity excommunicates Dr Fomenko as the background of religions in response to Fomenko appears to be like as follows: the pre-Christian interval (before the eleventh century and Jesus Christ ), Bacchic Christianity (11th to twelfth century, sooner than and after Jesus Christ), Jesus Christ Christianity (12th to 14th century) and its next mutations (15th to seventeenth cy) into Orthodox Christianity, the Catholicism, Protestantism, Islam, Buddhism, and so on..and The outdated testomony written after the hot testomony in xiv-xvi cy A.D.! Saint Augustine was once rather prescient whilst he acknowledged: 'be cautious of mathematicians, rather after they communicate the truth.'
