Nanosystems

Nanosystems

"Devices enormously smaller than before will remodel engineering, chemistry, medicine, and computer technology. How can we understand machines that are so small? Nanosystems covers it all: power and strength, friction and wear, thermal noise and quantum uncertainty. This is the book for starting the next century of engineering." - Marvin Minsky MIT Science magazine calls Eric Drexler "Mr. Nanotechnology." For years, Drexler has stirred controversy by declaring that molecular nanotechnology will bring a sweeping technological revolution - delivering tremendous advances in miniaturization, materials, computers, and manufacturing of all kinds. Now, he's written a detailed, top-to-bottom analysis of molecular machinery - how to design it, how to analyze it, and how to build it. Nanosystems is the first scientifically detailed description of developments that will revolutionize most of the industrial processes and products currently in use. This groundbreaking work draws on physics and chemistry to establish basic concepts and analytical tools.The book then describes nanomechanical components, devices, and systems, including parallel computers able to execute 1020 instructions per second and desktop molecular manufacturing systems able to make such products. Via chemical and biochemical techniques, proximal probe instruments, and software for computer-aided molecular design, the book charts a path from present laboratory capabilities to advanced molecular manufacturing. Bringing together physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering, and computer science, Nanosystems provides an indispensable introduction to the emerging field of molecular nanotechnology.

The Boy with Two Hearts

The Boy with Two Hearts

** BBC RADIO 4 BOOK OF THE WEEK 29 JUNE - 3 JULY 2020 READ BY SANJEEV BHASKAR (GOODNESS GRACIOUS ME, THE KUMARS AT NO. 42 AND MORE) ** 'Enthralling' Daily Mail 'An inspiring read' Nihal Arthanayake, BBC Radio 5 Live 'The Boy With Two Hearts truly epitomises the strength of the human spirit.' Asifa Lahore - Britain's First Out Muslim Drag Queen and LGBT+ activist A powerful tale of a family in crisis, and a moving love letter to the NHS Herat, Afghanistan, 2000. A mother speaks out against the fundamentalist leaders of her country. Meanwhile, her family's watchful eyes never leave their beloved son and brother, whose rare heart condition means that he will never lead a normal life. When the Taliban gave an order for the execution of Hamed Amiri's mother, the family knew they had to escape, starting what would be a long and dangerous journey, across Russia and through Europe, with the UK as their ultimate destination. Travelling as refugees for a year and a half, they suffered attacks from mafia and police; terrifying journeys in strangers' cars; treks across demanding terrain; days spent hidden in lorries without food or drink; and being robbed at gunpoint of every penny they owned. The family's need to reach the UK was intensified by their eldest son's deteriorating condition, and the prospect of life-saving treatment it offered. The Boy with Two Hearts is not only a tale of a family in crisis, but a love letter to the NHS, which provided hope and reassurance as they sought asylum in the UK and fought to save their loved ones.

Runner's World Essential Guides: Barefoot Running and Minimalism

Runner's World Essential Guides: Barefoot Running and Minimalism

The basic rationale for running barefoot or in minimalist models goes something like this: Humans evolved to cover long distances by foot. By introducing a thick layer of cushioning and an elevated heel between the foot and the ground, modern running shoes alter natural running form. But modern running shoes alter form in ways that lead to injury. Therefore, getting back to a more natural running gait by running in little-to-no shoe will lead to improved form, which should lower injury rates.A key reason to run barefoot or in minimalist shoes is to allow your feet to work more naturally, free from the confines and controls of overly engineered running shoes. Unfortunately, too many runners, eager to run more naturally, have gone too far, too fast, from one extreme to the other. The realities of modern life have weakened our feet, ankles, and lower legs, and our bodies have adapted to the shoes we have worn for most of our lives; if we suddenly start running in little-to-no shoe, our bodies are not prepared for the new stresses.Runner's World Essential Guides: Barefoot Running and Minimalismprovides historical context, thoughts, advice, and tips on making a healthy transition. The foremost authorities on running on the planet show you how to ease into a transition from conventional running shoes to barefoot running or minimalist shoes, starting with some simple at-home tests to see if your feet already have the strength they need to handle little-to-no shoe. You'll learn a step-by-step process for safely moving away from doing all your running in big, bulky shoes, including guidelines on how to introduce barefoot running into your regimen.Whether you want to learn more about the barefoot craze that's swept the nation or you want to introduce barefoot running into your training plan, this indispensable guide contains everything you need to get started!

all the Year Garden

all the Year Garden

The garden to strive for is one that has no off-moments but is interesting and attractive whatever the time of year. So says Margery Fish in her introduction to the original edition of this book. In the 21st century this may seem like stating the obvious but in 1958 it was a more surprising notion. The strength of this book is that it proves the point. Starting as a gardening journalist then gaining a reputation as a lecturer, Margery caught the attention of more gardeners, and made a more lasting impact, with her first book, We Made a Garden. Having completed the tribute to her late husband, in this, her second book, she set out in detail how to achieve her aim of a garden that looks good all the year round. This is a confident Margery Fish, making her own garden in her own way and writing about it with natural enthusiasm to help gardeners break away from the traditional idea of empty and desolate gardens in winter. In particular she focuses on the plants themselves, highlighting those that can be relied upon to flower in winter, on evergreen foliage plants that fill the garden with long-term interest, and on plants with unusually long seasons of colour. Recognising that the period from autumn through to the bulbs of spring is the most difficult time for most gardeners planning an all-the-year garden, Margery highlights hellebores and hardy cyclamen, plants which in the 1950s were not considered particularly significant. Through her persuasive prose, based as ever on her own experiences at East Lambrook Manor, she raises them to the first rank. She also stirred interest in heathers as winter flowers, in peat gardening, and her infectious delight in collecting plants, like hellebores and the old hose- in-hose primroses, still delights us. And all the while, her own appreciation of the way her plants grew and her understanding of how to encourage them to give their best adds fundamental horticultural wisdom to her natural enthusiasm for the plants themselves.

Turning the Tables by Teresa Giudice

Turning the Tables by Teresa Giudice

Turning the Tables : Paperback : Gallery Books : 9781501135118 : 1501135112 : 05 Jul 2016 : "Teresa Giudice, star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, has seen it all, but nothing--not even Real Housewives scandals--could compare to the media firestorm that ensued after she was convicted on federal fraud charges. The infamous, fun-loving Jersey mom of four was sentenced to fifteen months in the same prison where Piper Kerman--the real-life inspiration behind Orange Is the New Black--did her time. Her tiny prison cubicle in Connecticut felt so far removed from the glamorous world portrayed on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. What was a skinny Italian to do? Keep a diary, of course... In her very first tell-all memoir, Teresa comes clean on all things Giudice: growing up as an Italian-American, meeting the love of her life and starting a family, dealing with chaos and catfights on national television, and eventually, coming to terms with the reality of life in prison. Featuring never-before-seen scans of her prison diary, Turning the Tables captures some of the most memorable moments of her prison stay, including the cringe-inducing fistfights she witnessed, the awkward conundrum of being trapped when a fellow inmate had a...guest...over, and the strength she found while confined between four concrete walls. Even at her lowest of lows, Teresa was able to live la bella vita by staying positive and realizing her purpose. Friends, foes, and fans have speculated about Teresa's prison experience, but nothing will prepare you for the revelations she makes in this entertaining and heartwarming memoir. "The world will see a new Teresa. A different Teresa. Well, actually, the Teresa I always was.""--

Darkest Hour - John Alite

Darkest Hour - John Alite

DARKEST HOUR A TRUE STORY / TRUE CRIME Author writes of Mafia hitman's true life's story. John Alite was the notorious hitman for the Gotti and Gambino crime family in New York City in the 80's & 90's, killing and maiming over a hundred other gangsters throughout his carrier as a hitman. An inspirational, heartfelt journey down a path of seemingly no return... Through a life of heartache, betrayal, and loss, comes a story of grace, healing and redemption. S.C. Pike brings John Alite's story to life in such a way it will make the reader feel they are living in his shoes. Starting from a young age and moving into adulthood, the reader will come to have an appreciation for all the influences that swayed Mr. Alite to succumb to living a life of crime. Former Mafia Enforcer for John Gotti and the Gambino Crime Family, John Alite, shares his life story in a unique way, in hopes to dispel the mystique of the mob and sway anyone from living a life of crime. * * * He's had too many darkest hours to count, but he's pushed through them all with a spirited perseverance, tenacity of mind, and a strength of purpose. Just like everything else in his life, he's met adversity head on with fierce determination and a resoluteness to come out on top. * * * A college baseball scholarship was his way out of the inner city, but his dreams of going pro were crushed by an arm injury. John Alite was forced to return home to the only life he knew, where having to live on the streets of New York meant one thing--learning how to survive. He was driven. He was extreme. He was feared. But most of all, he was loyal. From a young age, he found himself influenced by the wrong crowd. Enticed by the wealth, power, and prestige of the mafia, he immersed himself in a world that was foreign to most. A society where policies were enforced by instilling fear. Those at the top were about obtaining and harnessing absolute power, while covertly using their own warped codes of ethics. Honor and loyalty were...

The Regeneration

The Regeneration

If you were to choose one superpower, what would you have? Super-speed? Super-strength? Flight? You know what I say to that? Basic. Blah! You know what I would have? Electrical manipulation, control over air and wind, fire manipulation, earth manipulation, sorcery (to name a few). All of those are on display in this book. Some powers may be more common than others. Just like the other heroes that possess these powers, our main character Arevin (Are-e-vin) was sent to Earth from a planet called Hocus, home to the powerful Ariveinian Kingdom. The year is 2172, and Arevin was sent to Earth to make contact with the people after the construction of the first Martian colony, making the Earth a “class three civilization”. Arevin soon develops his basic powers and learns how to control them by protecting citizens and stopping crimes. That is, until Arevin encounters Joseph Green, aka Dark Nature, another super-powered person with the same skills and abilities… Isaac Verjan is a teenager who got a cool idea when he still in elementary school, he put a short story idea into google docs starting the early stages of this book. Isaac liked to draw these characters himself, slowly developing them more and more, getting better at writing and drawing as he grew up. Writing the story in full, just not the way he would later want it to be. He eventually redeveloped the story and even changed the main characters entirely. Isaac had originally gotten the idea of this story from wondering what would happen if the Sci-fi and Fantasy genres combined together as he had never seen it done very well. He lives a decent middle class life in America, still in highschool. Being in school meant that the first book became difficult for Isaac to write taking him around three years to actually get it the way he wanted it. He eventually found the right publishing company and went through with the process to get to where this book is now. “I’m glad God sent me on this path and not where I thought I...

A Cure for Heartache

A Cure for Heartache

'A tale of loss and hope, of strength drawn from truly inhabiting the moment.' - Raynor Winn, bestselling author of The Salt PathHeartwarming non fiction up lit about starting over and embracing life, one simple moment at a time.Shattered when her 25-year marriage comes to an abrupt and painful end, writer Mary Jane Grant runs away to London to immerse herself in any reality but her own. Reeling from the shock and loss of her marriage and the life she's known, she begins to discover that if she can just focus on the moment, take notice of the people, the sights and smells around her, that her pain and grief start to recede. From the bustling cafes of Camden and the pastel-coloured streets of Primrose Hill, to the sun soaked vineyards of the south of France, her journey leads her to rich new experiences that she could never have imagined in her old life. Real connections are made, she lets go of the things she no longer needs, and takes pleasure in the good, generous and beautiful parts of life that she encounters every day. Beautifully and succinctly told, this is a story about what happens when you embrace life, whatever it may bring, with surprising - and joyful - results. While the tea steeped, I split open the muffin and slathered butter across the warm, crumbly surface. I watched the butter melt. I took a bite. Memories of my grandmother's kitchen came back. I cradled the smooth white cup in my hand, ran my fingers over the uneven top of the time-worn wooden table. I looked around the place and watched people. Time passed. I realised that it was an hour since I first saw the sign telling me to smell the tea. And, all this time I had been possessed of neither sad memories nor anxious worries. I was completely and simply here, with the tea, the place, the people, myself. I was present. And it felt wonderful.
