Vitamin B12 Advances and Insights

Vitamin B12: Advances and Insights by Rima Obeid
2017 | ISBN: 1498706991 | English | 376 pages | PDF | 5 MB

Cobalamin (vitamin B12) was discovered in the first half of the 20th century. Vast amount of information on the role of the vitamins in human health and disease became available. Cobalamin science was, however, based on theoretical concepts that have been accepted without further proof of facts and hypotheses. Recently, the breath-taking pace of development in research technologies has changed our understanding for the role of nutrients and the complex interaction between diet, environment and diseases. Conditions like aging, diet and drugs increase the risk of developing cobalamin deficiency, probably because of diminished ability to liberate, absorb or distribute the food-derived vitamin. From a basic science point of view, understanding of the transport and function of the vitamin, may pave the road for using this system for drug delivery.
This book represents up-to-date literature on the discoveries and developments in the field of cobalamin. It includes multifaceted aspects of the vitamin in health and disease conditions. The book has been written by leading scientists who have significant contributions in this field and represents therefore, a timely unique encyclopaedia on cobalamin.

Viewing the Constellations with Binoculars 250+ Wonderful Sky Objects to See and Explore

Viewing the Constellations with Binoculars: 250+ Wonderful Sky Objects to See and Explore (The Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy Series) by Bojan Kambic
English | 27 Apr. 2010 | ISBN: 0387853545 | 536 Pages | PDF | 35.41 MB
Viewing the Constellations with Binoculars is a complete guide to practical astronomy, written for beginners, intermediate-level astronomers, and even people who have not yet turned their gaze to the night sky.

Viewing the Constellations with Binoculars is a complete guide to practical astronomy, written for beginners, intermediate-level astronomers, and even people who have not yet turned their gaze to the night sky. The required observing equipment to get the full value from this book is no more than a pair of regular 10 x 50 binoculars, but even more can be seen with a small astronomical telescope.
This comprehensive introduction to astronomy and practical observing is far more than a guide to what can be seen in the night sky through binoculars. It introduces the reader to some basic (and some not-so-basic) astronomical concepts, and discusses the stars and their evolution, the planets, nebulae, and distant galaxies. There is a guide to selecting and using binoculars for astronomy, as well, as a ‘getting ready to observe’ section containing invaluable practical hints and tips.
The second part of the book is an extraordinarily complete atlas and guide to the night sky down to 30? N (covering all the USA and Europe). It is illustrated with superb and sometimes beautiful amateur astronomical photographs, detailed maps (down to 5th magnitude), descriptions, and data on all astronomical objects of interest.

Vice Capades Sex, Drugs, and Bowling from the Pilgrims to the Present [Audiobook]


Mark Stein, David Drummond (Narrator), "Vice Capades: Sex, Drugs, and Bowling from the Pilgrims to the Present"
ASIN: B074BD5Z5Q | 2017 | MP3@64 kbps | ~08:31:00 | 242 MB

From the illegality of bowling in colonial America to violent video games and synthetic drugs, Vice Capades by best-selling author Mark Stein examines the nation’s relationship with the actions, attitudes, and antics that have defined morality. This comprehensive yet humorous history reveals that our views of vice are not formed merely by morals but by power. By viewing a variety of vices across the span of American history, Vice Capades brings into focus the nation’s inconsistent moral compass and helps us understand shifts in laws to combat vice by revealing who and what wields power (often invisibly) in the United States.
While laws against such things as nude dancing have become less restrictive, restrictive laws have been enacted against sexual harassment. While marijuana is no longer illegal in numerous jurisdictions, restrictive laws have been enacted against cigarettes. Stein examines how this nation’s inconsistent moral compass has consistently pointed to every era’s powers-that-be and enables us to view shifts in the power structure taking place before the public became aware of particular laws against vice and who determines what is or is not deemed vice.

Value and Profit An Introduction to Measurement in Financial Reporting

Geoffrey Whittington, "Value and Profit: An Introduction to Measurement in Financial Reporting"
English | ISBN: 0521190975, 0521155886 | 2017 | EPUBI | 448 pages | 18 MB

The measurement methods used in financial accounting affect our perception of the value and performance of businesses by determining the amount of reported profit or loss and the resources of the business. Thus, measurement affects shareholders and other stakeholders in the business. It has even been suggested that the world financial crisis of 2007-2010 was partly due to the mis-measurement of financial instruments. In this book, Geoffrey Whittington provides a unique survey of the theory and practice of measurement in financial accounts. It seeks to define and illustrate alternative methods, using simple numerical examples, and to analyse their theoretical properties. Also, it summarises extensive empirical evidence and the historical development of ideas and practice. It is essential reading for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students studying financial accounting, as well as practitioners and policy-makers concerned with accounting standards.

Using R at the Bench Step-by-Step Data Analytics for Biologists

Using R at the Bench: Step-by-Step Data Analytics for Biologists by Martina Bremer, Rebecca W. Doerge
2015 | ISBN: 1621821129 | English | 200 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Using R at the Bench: Step-by-Step Data Analytics for Biologists is a convenient bench-side handbook for biologists, designed as a handy reference guide for elementary and intermediate statistical analyses using the free/public software package known as "R." The expectations for biologists to have a more complete understanding of statistics are growing rapidly. New technologies and new areas of science, such as microarrays, next-generation sequencing, and proteomics, have dramatically increased the need for quantitative reasoning among biologists when designing experiments and interpreting results. Even the most routine informatics tools rely on statistical assumptions and methods that need to be appreciated if the scientific results are to be correct, understood, and exploited fully.
Although the original Statistics at the Bench is still available for sale and has all examples in Excel, this new book uses the same text and examples in R. A new chapter introduces the basics of R: where to download, how to get started, and some basic commands and resources. There is also a new chapter that explains how to analyze next-generation sequencing data using R (specifically, RNA-Seq). R is powerful statistical software with many specialized packages for biological applications and Using R at the Bench: Step-by-Step Data Analytics for Biologists is an excellent resource for those biologists who want to learn R. This handbook for working scientists provides a simple refresher for those who have forgotten what they once knew and an overview for those wishing to use more quantitative reasoning in their research. Statistical methods, as well as guidelines for the interpretation of results, are explained using simple examples. Throughout the book, examples are accompanied by detailed R commands for easy reference.

Uplink-Downlink A History of the Deep Space Network, 1957-1997

Uplink-Downlink: A History of the Deep Space Network, 1957-1997 by Douglas J. Mudgway
English | December 19, 2013 | ISBN: 1494740613 | EPUB | 722 pages | 0.5 MB

This official NASA history document – converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction – provides a comprehensive, readable history of NASA’s Deep Space Network (DSN), the network of antennas communicating with interplanetary probes including the eras of the Mariner, Viking, Voyager, Galileo, Cassini spacecraft. Contents: Genesis: 1957-1961; The Mariner Era: 1961-1974; The Viking Era: 1974-1978; The Voyager Era: 1977-1986; The Galileo Era: 1986-1996; The Cassini Era: 1996-1997; The Advance of Technology in the Deep Space Network; The Deep Space Network as a Scientific Instrument; The Deep Space Network as an Organization in Change.
From the Foreword: "Without the remarkable improvement in performance of the DSN, scientific missions to the distant planets would have been impossible. In 1964, when Mariner IV flew past Mars and took a few photographs, the limitation of the communication link meant that it took eight hours to return to Earth a single photograph from the Red Planet. By 1989, when Voyager observed Neptune, the DSN capability had increased so much that almost real-time video could be received from the much more distant planet, Neptune. It is timely that, some 40 years after its inception, the Deep Space Network should be recognized for its remarkable litany of progress in radio communications over vast distances, thereby allowing planetary scientists to collect data from sites throughout the solar system. This book succeeds in bringing the history of the DSN forward for the attention of curious, generally informed, or technical specialist readers.
In planning this book, New Zealand-born author Douglas Mudgway was faced with the formidable problem of making an extremely complex technology comprehensible to the curious or generally informed reader, while at the same time presenting for the specialist reader a historically accurate account of the advance of the technology that made possible more sophisticated planetary missions. The task was further complicated by the fact that the DSN was in a constant state of change, changes that were in consonance with the requirements of the space missions it was supporting. For the former type of reader, Mudgway describes what the DSN actually did, within the framework of several overarching eras, each corresponding to a period of time during which a major NASA deep space mission dominated the public scene. The Mariner, Viking, Voyager, and Galileo Eras are examples. He provides an inside view of what it took to design, build, and operate those tenuous radio communication links between the controllers, engineers, and scientists at computer terminals at JPL and billion dollar spacecraft about to land on Mars, orbit around Jupiter, or fly through the rings of Saturn. For the latter reader, the author provides an excellent review of the growth of the specialized technology that underlaid the remarkable expansion of Network capability that enabled the design of increasingly ambitious planetary missions."
