Description : NASA's Genesis mission, launched on August 8, 2001 is the fifth mission in the Discovery series. Genesis addresses questions about the materials and processes involved in the origin of the solar system by providing precise knowledge of solar isotopic and elemental compositions for comparison with the compositions of meteoritic and planetary materials. This book describes the Genesis mission, the solar wind collector materials, the solar wind concentrator and simulations of its performance, the plasma ion and electron instruments, and the way these two instruments are used to determine the solar wind flow regime on board the spacecraft. The book is of interest to all potential users of the data returned by the Genesis mission, to those studying the isotopic and chemical composition of the early solar system whose work will be influenced by the measurements made by Genesis and by all those interested in the design and implementation of space instruments to study space plasmas.
Description : The book is organized to assist readers in finding the topics that interest them the most. What do we really know about the contributing causes of terrorism? Are all forms of terrorism created equal, or are there important differences in terrorisms that one must know about to customize effective counter-strategies? Does poverty cause terrorism? Are terrorists typically crazy, vengeful, misled, or simply making an entirely sensible choice? Why would people blow themselves (and others) up? Is the “war on terrorism” even a useful idea? Is it being fought wisely, or are much better ideas staring policy makers in the face? Do leaders of targeted nations wilfully neglect the best solutions? Most of the lessons in this book concern the basic human ingredients that combust to produce violent extremism. Thus – regardless of the mutations that occur in substate terrorism – the timeless scholarship here will hopefully be somewhat helpful even to our grandchildren.

Description : Soil Genesis That Studies The Evolution Of Soils And The Changes Taking Place In Soil Bodies Has Received Increasing Interest And Attention In The Twentieth Century, And This Yet Continues. Despite The Fact That The Indian Soil Scientists Have Made Much Investigation Into The Subject Of Soil Genesis, Classification, Survey And Evaluation, There Are Very Few Books That Provide Ample Instructional Material Relevant To Situation In India. The Present Book Is Primarily Focused On The Study Of Geological Conditions Of India. Briefly Outlining The Fundamental Concepts Of Soil Genesis And Acquainting The Readers With Rich Minerals Present Under The Soil, The Book Provides A Detailed Study Of The Factors And Processes Of Soil Formation, Including Description And Interpretation Of The Soil Profile And Patterns Of Soils Occurring On The Surface Of The Earth. Furthermore, It Lays Down The Purpose And The Historical As Well As Modern Basis Of Classification Of Soils In Different Countries Across The World. It Particularly Provides An In-Depth Study Of Soils Prevalent In The Varied States Of India In Addition To The Assessment Of Productivity Of Bench Mark Soils Of The Country. The Book Also Covers Significant Areas Like Remote Sensing, Soil Survey, Land Use, Land Capability Classification, Land Irrigability Classification, Land Evaluation, Land Use Planning And Cartography. Considerable Authentic Information Has Been Drawn From The Works Of Indian Soil Scientists In These Disciplines Which Has Necessarily Added To The Value Of The Book.Designed As A Textbook, Its Approach To The Subject Is Reader-Friendly. Its Simple Language And Lucid Style Make It Accessible Even To Average Students. It Is Hoped That The Book Will Prove Immensely Useful And Informative To Students And Teachers Of Geology As Well As Soil Surveyors.

Description : All the races of men, along with their gods, descend from Japhet, son of Noah. The Hebrew and Hindu holy books say that all our deities and religions came from a race of spacemen from Outer Space, to keep mankind from devolving to animal level. "It was then, and later too, that the Nephilim appeared on earth-when the divine beings cohabited with the daughters of men " (Genesis 6:4). The ancient Hindus and Turks called them Navalin (Star Ship People) and Anunaka/Anunaki (One who is from the Sky; From the Place of No Pain). The Sumerians, Mesopotamians, and Akkadians called them Anunaki (Sky Gods; People of Heaven and Earth). The divine strangers appointed the tribe of Japhet or the Sanskrit Jyapeti to rule the earth. This divine right of kingship extended also to their close relatives, the Yadu, Yadava, and Yahuda (Jews). The divine religions they inherited were Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism-all of which originated in Siberia. But things went wrong. Mankind kept getting worse. Men started to deny that Christaya, Kurus, and Aryans, as they were called, originated from Mt. Meru in Southern Siberia. The ancient Jews insisted that mankind had spread from the Tower of Babylon, which was just a symbol of Meru. The Hindus likewise insisted that their Gods were home grown and not from Outer Space. Yet, the story might be true. It extended over the entire Eastern Hemisphere.

Description : This book examines the multiple ways in which rural regions in Europe are being restructured through globalization and the regional development responses that they have adopted. It provides an understanding of the key challenges and opportunities for rural regions arising from the major economic, social, political and cultural changes associated with globalization, including trade liberalization and economic deregulation, increased international migration, and the rise of global consciousness about environmental issues. Drawing on examples and findings from a major European research project, DERREG, the book presents detailed case studies of ten regions in different parts of Europe, exploring the factors that lead to different experiences of globalization in each of the regions, and highlighting examples of good practice in regional development responses. The book concludes by proposing a typology of regional responses to globalization and considering the policy implications of the research findings. As such, ’Globalization and Europe’s Rural Regions’ is important reading for geographers, sociologists, planners and economists interested in understanding the impact of globalization in rural regions, and for rural development professionals seeking to mobilize effective responses.
