BRIDGE AT ANDAU, THE

The Bridge at Andau is James A. Michener at his most gripping, the classic nonfiction account of a doomed uprising as searing and unforgettable as any of his bestselling novels. For five brief, glorious days in the autumn of 1956, the Hungarian revolution gave its people a glimpse at a different kind of future--until, at four o'clock in the morning on a Sunday in November, the citizens of Budapest woke to the shattering sound of Russian tanks ravaging their streets. The revolution was over. But freedom beckoned in the form of a small footbridge at Andau, on the Austrian border. By an accident of history it became, for a few harrowing weeks, one of the most important crossings in the world as the soul of a nation fled across its unsteady planks.

Lions and Shadows

WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY JAMES FENTON. Subtitled 'An education in the twenties', this work blends autobiography and fiction to describe the inner life of a writer evolving from precocious public school boy to Cambridge drop-out at large in London’s Bohemia. It contains thinly veiled portraits of Isherwood’s contemporaries Auden, Upward, and Spender, whose intimate friendships and cult of rebellion shaped the literary identity of England in the 1930s. Witty and outrageous, Isherwood pokes fun at the stars of his generation, above all himself, even as he testifies to their unique early gifts.

School drop-out and retention rates, Kenya

Students are important in any education system. They are the basic component for any school to be registered by the Ministry of Education. However the retention of these students within the education system is a great challenge. Male students face a lot of challenges within the school and outside the school such as lack of school fees, examination pass marks and discrimination at home and in school, which lead to drop out from school. The study therefore sought to establish the factors leading to drop out among male students in Mihang’o division, Njiru District. The objectives of the study were to estimate the independent and dependent factors leading to students drop out of school. Stratified random sampling was used to select the 6 schools where the boys sample came from. The reasons for being absent from school was as follows; school fees 40%, sickness 20%, helping at home 20%, caring for sick relatives 10% and engaging in casual work 5%. The study recommends enhancing of guidance and counseling in schools, provision of bursaries to boys and community sensitization on the importance of boy child education

Language raising development and empowerment

This book aims at finding out the challenges and implications of the promotion of Shona language in using it as a language of instruction at university level. Taking the Great Zimbabwe University (GZU) as a case study, this book explores some of the strategies the linguists at GZU have adopted in dealing with the critical issue of language prioritization for development within the context of a difficult linguistic background. This research has been helpful in shading light to the pitfalls and possibilities in the use of the mother tongue in learning at university level. The issue of change in the medium of instruction needs a gradual approach rather than a radical one. The findings from this study confirm that, given time, will and adequate resources, mother tongue instruction can be used at university level in learning Shona.

Effect of nitrogen and PGR's on growth and productivity of black gram Effect of nitrogen and PGR's on growth and productivity of black gram Новинка

Effect of nitrogen and PGR's on growth and productivity of black gram

Pulses are the most important crops in India because of its low cost and high quality protein. They play a major role in providing a balanced protein component in the diet of the people. Besides, the crops enrich the soil fertility and health in terms of addition of nitrogen and organic matter.Black gram is indeterminate in its flowering and fruiting habits and there is a competition for available assimilates between vegetative and reproductive sinks. There is limitation of source (leaves) particularly at flowering and fruiting stage. Hence, there is a need to improve LAI and LAD. Being a C3 plant, CGR and RGR are relatively less than cereals and the major yield components are pods per plant, seeds per plant and test weight of seeds.Apart from this genetic make up, the major physiological constraints limiting its production is flower drop and fruit drop. This performance of the crops can be overcome by foliar application of growth regulating chemicals at the crucial stages of the crop, which is one of the latest trends in agriculture. The growth regulating chemicals bioregulators can improve the physiological efficiency including the photosynthetic ability of crop.

Tropical rain Drop Size Distribution and Integral rain parameters

This book deals with tropical rain Drop Size Distribution (DSD), rain rate (R) and radar reflectivity factor (Z). An extensive understanding of rain DSD and integral rain parameters finds applications in fields like satellite meteorology, cloud microphysics, soil erosion, micro wave communication and global climate. DSD and derived rain parameters data from 4 tropical stations for 10 years, which were measured using a Joss-Waldvogel Disdrometer and those at different heights, which were collected using a Micro Rain Radar are used. The Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) and other satellite rain rate (3B42-V6) for the same period has also been used. The major results pertain to the development and testing of a model for the variation of DSD with rain rate in the tropics. The theoretical concepts regarding the altitudinal and temporal evolution of rain DSD could be proved. The evaluation of the vertical profiles of DSD and Z-R relations for tropical region is another result. This study has also brought out the need to have a closer look at the satellite retrieval. The behaviour of the rain rate at tropics and the possible effect of orography on DSD has also been brought out.

The Pro-drop Parameter in L2 Acquisition The Pro-drop Parameter in L2 Acquisition Новинка

The Pro-drop Parameter in L2 Acquisition

This book addresses the L2 acquisition of the pro-drop parameter as one of the oft-cited parameters in Chomsky’s Principles and Parameters (P&P) Theory. Studies in the literature claim that triggering one of the properties of the pro-drop parameter leads to the acquisition of the other properties which in turn results in resetting the parameter. The book explores whether focusing on one of the properties of the pro-drop parameter through inputting different types of positive/negative evidence could trigger the L2 acquisition of (the other properties of) the parameter. It offers a useful review of issues such as L2 learners’ access to UG in resetting the pro-drop parameter, markedness and the pro-drop parameter, the type of evidence needed to reset the pro-drop parameter, resetting the pro-drop parameter, and the clustered properties of the pro-drop parameter. Employing an empirical approach, the book challenges the resettability of the pro-drop parameter and reports on the theoretical, empirical, and pedagogical implications of the findings. The intended readership of the book is postgraduate students, instructors, and researchers involved in second language acquisition research.

Why do nation states choose to develop national space programs? How can they justify national efforts to acquire capabilities by arguing for membership of the space club? This book provides a unique perspective of the past, current and future of space exploration and technological development in world politics. A country that sees itself as a power deserving of a seat at the table of world governance is expected to race for space. Based on a rich and detailed analysis of a range of space programs of states which are not usually at the focus of world politics and its research, the author shows that joining the space club is a legitimate and rational decision. The book provides a different way of looking at international relations, through a relatively under-studied area of policy - the space club.

Midnight Tides

After decades of warfare, the tribes of the Tiste Edur have at last united under the rule of the Warlock King. But peace has been exacted at a terrible price - a pact made with a hidden power whose motives are at best suspect, at worst deadly. To the south, the expansionist kingdom of Lether has devoured all of its less-civilised neighbours with rapacious hunger. All save one - the Tiste Edur. But Lether is approaching a long-prophesied renaissance - from kingdom and lost colony to Empire reborn - and has fixed its gaze on the rich lands of the Tiste Edur. It seems inevitable that the tribes will surrender, either to the suffocating weight of gold, or to slaughter at the edge of a sword. Or so Destiny has decreed. A pivotal treaty between the two sides nears - but unknown ancient forces are awakening. For the impending struggle between these two peoples is but a pale reflection of an altogether more profound, primal battle - a confrontation with the still-raw wound of betrayal and the craving for vengeance at its heart. War and confrontation, magic and myth collide in this, the stunning fifth chapter in Steven Erikson's magnificent 'Malazan Book of the Fallen' sequence, hailed as an epic of the imagination and a fantasy classic in the making.

At the Horizons of Modernity

At the Horizons of Modernity, by Canadian scholar Jarett Myskiw, argues that a theory of religion can be constructed upon a close reading of Jurgen Habermas' masterwork The Theory of Communicative Action (1984, 1987). While influential in many diverse fields of scholarly research, Habermas' thought has been relatively neglected in the academic study of religion, especially around the time of the above publication. At the Horizons of Modernity addresses this gap in research by considering Habermas' main arguments in terms of rationality, society, and communication, tying these to his engagements with the work of Max Weber and Emile Durkheim, then formulating a Habermasian theory of religion, before finally offering both a critique and suggestions for future research. A provocative and insightful critical treatment of Habermas' mature thought, At the Horizons of Modernity is certain to provoke sustained academic discussion and debate.

The Sunne in Splendour: A Novel of Richard III

To celebrate thirty years since its first publication, Pan Macmillan are proud to publish this special, re-edited edition, with a new author's note from Sharon Penman. Richard, last-born son of the Duke of York, was seven months short of his nineteenth birthday when he bloodied himself at the battles of Barnet and Tewkesbury, earning his legendary reputation as a battle commander and ending the Lancastrian line of succession. But Richard was far more than a warrior schooled in combat. He was also a devoted brother, an ardent suitor, a patron of the arts, an indulgent father, a generous friend. Above all, he was a man of fierce loyalties, great courage and firm principles, who was ill at ease among the intrigues of Edward's court. The very codes Richard lived by ultimately betrayed him. But he was betrayed by history too. Leaving no heir, his reputation was at the mercy of his successor, and Henry Tudor had too much at stake to risk mercy. Thus was born the myth of the man who would stop at nothing to gain the throne. Filled with the sights and sounds of battle, the customs and love of daily life, the rigours and dangers of Court politics and the touching concerns of very real men and women, "The Sunne in Splendour" is a richly coloured tapestry of medieval England.

Daniel Lednicer Steroid Chemistry at a Glance

The term steroid has become virtually synonymous with drug abuse in sport to the majority of the public. However these steroids – androgens – actually comprise only a single relatively small class of biologically active steroids, and are overshadowed by a large collection of compounds, a sizeable number of which are commercial drugs that share the same structural carbon skeleton. The development of these drugs has led to a large body of organic chemistry often denoted as «Steroid Chemistry». Steroid Chemistry At A Glance provides a concise overview of the main principles and reactions of steroid chemistry. Topics covered include: history, isolation and structure determination of steroids steroid nomenclature and stereochemistry natural sources of steroids synthesis and reactions of aromatic a-ring steroids, androstanes, and pregnanes steroids with a spirolactone at position 17 steroids with hetrocyclic ring A compounds derived from cholesterol Based on the highly successful and student friendly «at a glance» approach, the information is presented in integrated, self contained double page spreads of text and illustrative material. Students of chemistry and pharmacy using Steroid Chemistry at a Glance will find they have a resource with which they can quickly, concisely and confidently acquire, regularly review and revise the basic facts that underpin the properties, synthesis and reactions of this important class of natural products. It will also serve as a handy bench reference for postgraduates and professional chemists.

Riemann-Hilbert Problem and Quantum Field Theory

In this monograph, firstly, we introduce integrable renormalization formalism as a method of studying quantum integrable systems underlying the Hopf algebra of Feynman diagrams. Besides we consider an alternative approach to these systems which is connected with the Lie group of diffeographisms of a physical theory. Secondly, we consider the process which allows us to develop the Connes-Marcolli approach to the study of nonperturbative QFT. For this purpose, at the first step, we work on a new Hall tree type framework of the universal Hopf algebra of renormalization which can be lifted onto the level of universal counterterms. At the second step, we associate a categorical construction to each equation DSE which can encode this class of equations with respect to a special family of connections. At the third step, we consider the universality of the category of the equisingular flat vector bundles at the level of DSEs. At the fourth step, applying the mentioned categorical investigation, we determine a new family of Picard-Fuchs type equations related to each DSE. Further, we relate a category of Feynman motivic sheaves as a subcategory of the Arapura category to each DSE.

The Cat's Table

In the early 1950s, an eleven-year-old boy boards a huge liner bound for England - a 'castle that was to cross the sea'. At mealtimes, he is placed at the lowly 'Cat's Table' with an eccentric group of grown-ups and two other boys, Cassius and Ramadhin. As the ship makes its way across the Indian Ocean, through the Suez Canal, into the Mediterranean, the boys become involved in the worlds and stories of the adults around them, tumbling from one adventure and delicious discovery to another, 'bursting all over the place like freed mercury'. And at night, the boys spy on a shackled prisoner - his crime and fate a galvanizing mystery that will haunt them forever. As the narrative moves from the decks and holds of the ship and the boy's adult years, it tells a spellbinding story about the difference between the magical openness of childhood and the burdens of earned understanding - about a life-long journey that began unexpectedly with a spectacular sea voyage, when all on board were 'free of the realities of the earth'. With the ocean liner a brilliant microcosm for the floating dream of childhood, The Cat's Table is a vivid, poignant and thrilling book, full of Ondaatje's trademark set-pieces and breathtaking images: a story told with a child's sense of wonder by a novelist at the very height of his powers.

Drop the Ball

For women, a glass ceiling at work is not the only barrier to success - it's also the increasingly heavy obligations at home that weigh them down. Women have become accustomed to delegating, advocating and negotiating for themselves at the office, but when it comes to managing households, they still bear the brunt on their own shoulders. A simple solution is staring them in the face: negotiate with the men in their personal lives.In Drop The Ball, Tiffany Dufu explains how women can create all-in domestic partnerships that protect them against professional burn-out.

Structure of Sets with Small Sumset and Applications

The famous (3k ? 4)-Theorem of Freiman states that if the doubling A+A of a set A of coprime integers satis?es A + A ? 3|A| ? 4, then A is an interval with at most |A| ? 3 holes. It occurs, that sets with the same number of holes do not necessarily have doublings of the same size. It depends on the position of the holes. It was the main objective of this master thesis to determine the position of the holes for sets with small doubling. The answer to this question was given recently by Freiman and in here it is generalized to the case with di?erent summands. In the main result, it is proved that if A and B are sets with same diameter and small sumset, then A + B contains an interval of length at least half the total length of A + B. If x is a hole of A + B in the left of the interval, then x is a hole of both A an B, and if it is a hole at the right side of the interval, then x ? l is a hole of A and B. Applications of this results are also presented, concerning difference sets, sum-free sets and the Frobenius problem.

Nonlinear Response of Ga at Nanoscale Nonlinear Response of Ga at Nanoscale Новинка

Nonlinear Response of Ga at Nanoscale

This book is focused on structural phase transformation mechanism at the interface of Gallium and Silica. The nonlinear response of the film has been studied by solving a NLSE at the interface by the method of phase plane analysis. Also, the Maxwell-Garnett Effective Medium Theory has been used for calculating dielectric constants for various phases of gallium. Moreover, the results obtained have been implemented for investigating the nonlinear response of carbon nanotubes. The light induced conversion of ?-gallium to a new, more metallic, more reflective phase give rise to a big nonlinearity which can be applied to perform passive Q-switching of fiber-lasers. The, film of SWNT deposited on a dielectric substrate give rise to the nonlinear response at the interface which can be applied to fast switching devices that demand for large optical nonlinearity.

To calculate your metric (European) hat size a measurement of the head circumference should be taken in centimeters. This is best achieved by passing a cloth tape measure around the head. Alternatively a piece of string may be used and measured against a ruler or tape measure. It is important that this measurement is taken where a hat would normally rest. To take a measurement position the tape measure or string so that it rests just above the brow at the front of the head, touching the top of the ears at the side. Pull the tape so that is taut but not too tight and take a measurement.
