Handbook of Climate Change Communication: Vol. 2 Practice of Climate Change Communication By Walter Leal Filho
English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 422 Pages | ISBN : 3319700650 | 10.72 MB

This book is an ensemble of six major chapters, an introduction, and a closure on modeling transport phenomena in porous media with applications. Two of the six chapters explain the underlying theories, whereas the rest focus on new applications. Porous media transport is essentially a multi-scale process. Accordingly, the related theory described in the second and third chapters covers both continuum‐ and meso‐scale phenomena.

Statistical Mechanics for Athermal Fluctuation: Non-Gaussian Noise in Physics

Statistical Mechanics for Athermal Fluctuation: Non-Gaussian Noise in Physics By Kiyoshi Kanazawa
English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 | 231 Pages | ISBN : 9811063303 | 10.96 MB

The author investigates athermal fluctuation from the viewpoints of statistical mechanics in this thesis. Stochastic methods are theoretically very powerful in describing fluctuation of thermodynamic quantities in small systems on the level of a single trajectory and have been recently developed on the basis of stochastic thermodynamics. This thesis proposes, for the first time, a systematic framework to describe athermal fluctuation, developing stochastic thermodynamics for non-Gaussian processes, while thermal fluctuations are mainly addressed from the viewpoint of Gaussian stochastic processes in most of the conventional studies.

Handbook of Life Course Health Development By Neal Halfon
English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 666 Pages | ISBN : 3319471414 | 15.83 MB

This handbook synthesizes and analyzes the growing knowledge base on life course health development (LCHD) from the prenatal period through emerging adulthood, with implications for clinical practice and public health. It presents LCHD as an innovative field with a sound theoretical framework for understanding wellness and disease from a lifespan perspective, replacing previous medical, biopsychosocial, and early genomic models of health.

Essentials of Hypertension: The 120/80 paradigm

Essentials of Hypertension: The 120/80 paradigm By Flávio Danni Fuchs
English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 160 Pages | ISBN : 331963271X | 5.97 MB

The main purpose of this book is to select and present the most essential information about hypertension. It aims to select all the more relevant data to guide the attitudes to prevent, diagnose, and treat hypertension. Hypertension accounts for more than 50% of deaths from stroke and ischemic heart disease worldwide. New blood pressure (BP) diagnostic thresholds for hypertension are coming out, and they will likely be set at 120-130/80 mmHg. As a consequence, nearly two thirds of adults in the world will be at greater risk of a CV event.

The Futurist movement was founded and promoted by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, beginning in 1909 with the First Futurist Manifesto, in which he inveighed against the complacency of "cultural necrophiliacs" and sought to annihilate the values of the past, writing that "there is no longer any beauty except the struggle. Any work of art that lacks a sense of aggression can never be a masterpiece."
