Who Needs Books?: Reading in the Digital Age by Lynn Coady

Who Needs Books?: Reading in the Digital Age by Lynn Coady
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.0 MB
Overview: "We look around and feel as if book culture as we know it is crumbling to dust, but there’s one important thing to keep in mind: as we know it."What happens if we separate the idea of "the book" from the experience it has traditionally provided?

Lynn Coady challenges booklovers addicted to the physical book to confront their darkest fears about the digital world and the future of reading. Is the all-pervasive internet turning readers into web-surfing automatons and books themselves into museum pieces? The bogeyman of technological change has haunted humans ever since Plato warned about the dangers of the written word, and every generation is convinced its youth will bring about the end of civilization.

In Who Needs Books?, Coady suggests that, even though digital advances have long been associated with the erosion of literacy, recent technologies have not debased our culture as much as they have simply changed the way we read.

Requirements: .PDF reader, 1.3 MB
Overview: This book addresses women’s civil strategies for negotiation and leadership through careful analysis of social science research and management theory as well as interviews with women legislators, documenting how women in Washington are affecting the development of the world at all levels.
• Addresses how women in Washington have redefined leadership and power in terms of how they listen, work collaboratively, negotiate, facilitate change, communicate effectively, and empower and mentor others
• Identifies differences in the evidenced personal ethics between the genders in Congress that are reflective of their characters and professionalism―or lack thereof
• Provides examples of the unusual bipartisanship and civility can be seen in the informal "sisterhood" that women senators and representatives have established that allows for more mature and cooperative relationships

Quantum Physics: Everyone Needs to Know by Michael G. Raymer (.M4B)

Quantum Physics: What Everyone Needs to Know by Michael G. Raymer
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 253 MB
Overview: Around 1900, physicists started to discover particles like electrons, protons, and neutrons, and with these discoveries believed they could predict the internal behavior of the atom. However, once their predictions were compared to the results of experiments in the real world, it became clear that the principles of classical physics and mechanics were far from capable of explaining phenomena on the atomic scale. With this realization came the advent of quantum physics, one of the most important intellectual movements in human history. Today, quantum physics is everywhere: it explains how our computers work, how lasers transmit information across the Internet, and allows scientists to predict accurately the behavior of nearly every particle in nature. Its application continues to be fundamental in the investigation of the most expansive questions related to our world and the universe.
However, while the field and principles of quantum physics are known to have nearly limitless applications, the fundamental reasons why this is the case are far less understood. In Quantum Physics: What Everyone Needs to Know, quantum physicist Michael G. Raymer distills the basic principles of such an abstract field, and addresses the many ways quantum physics is a key factor in today’s science and beyond. The book tackles questions as broad as the meaning of quantum entanglement and as specific and timely as why governments worldwide are spending billions of dollars developing quantum technology research. Raymer’s list of topics is diverse, and showcases the sheer range of questions and ideas in which quantum physics is involved. From applications like data encryption and quantum computing to principles and concepts like "quantum nonlocality" and Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, Quantum Physics: What Everyone Needs to Know is a wide-reaching introduction to a nearly ubiquitous scientific topic.

Quantum Physics: What Everybody Must Know by means of Michael G. Raymer
Necessities: .M4A/.M4B reader, 253 MB
Evaluation: Round 1900, physicists began to find debris like electrons, protons, and neutrons, and with those discoveries believed they may are expecting the interior conduct of the atom. Then again, as soon as their predictions have been in comparison to the result of experiments in the actual global, it turned into transparent that the foundations of classical physics and mechanics have been a ways from able to explaining phenomena at the atomic scale. With this realization got here the arrival of quantum physics, one of the vital essential highbrow actions in human historical past. These days, quantum physics is in every single place: it explains how our computer systems paintings, how lasers transmit data around the Web, and permits scientists to are expecting appropriately the conduct of just about each and every particle in nature. Its utility is still elementary within the investigation of essentially the most expansive questions associated with our global and the universe.
Then again, whilst the sphere and rules of quantum physics are identified to have just about countless programs, the basic the explanation why that is the case are a ways much less understood. In Quantum Physics: What Everybody Must Know, quantum physicist Michael G. Raymer distills the elemental rules of such an summary box, and addresses the various tactics quantum physics is a key consider nowadays’s science and past. The ebook tackles questions as wide because the that means of quantum entanglement and as particular and well timed as why governments international are spending billions of bucks creating quantum era analysis. Raymer’s checklist of subjects is numerous, and showcases the sheer vary of questions and concepts by which quantum physics is concerned. From programs like information encryption and quantum computing to rules and ideas like "quantum nonlocality" and Heisenberg’s uncertainty idea, Quantum Physics: What Everybody Must Know is a wide-reaching advent to a just about ubiquitous clinical subject.

Pandemics: What Everyone Needs to Know by Peter C. Doherty (.M4B)

Pandemics: What Everybody Must Know by Peter C. Doherty
Necessities: .M4A/.M4B reader, 226 MB

The phrase conjures up photos of horrific ailments sweeping the globe and killing everybody of their path. However such extremely deadly sicknesses nearly by no means create pandemics. The truth is lethal severe however way more delicate.
In Pandemics, Peter Doherty, who received the Nobel Prize for his work on how the immune system acknowledges virus-infected cells, provides an important information to one of many really life-or-death problems with our age. In concise, question-and-answer format, he explains the causes of pandemics, how they are often counteracted with vaccines and medicines, and the way we will higher put together for them sooner or later. Doherty notes that the time period "pandemic" refers to not a illness’s severity however to its capability to unfold quickly over a large geographical space. Extraordinarily deadly pathogens are normally rapidly recognized and confined.
However, the rise of high-speed transportation networks and the globalization of commerce and journey have radically accelerated the unfold of ailments. A traveler from Africa arrived in New York in 1999 carrying the West Nile virus; one mosquito chew later, it was free within the ecosystem. Doherty explains how the primary menace of a pandemic comes from respiratory viruses, akin to influenza and SARS, which disseminate with unimaginable velocity by way of air journey.
The local weather disruptions of worldwide warming, rising inhabitants density, and rising antibiotic resistance all complicate efforts to regulate pandemics. However Doherty stresses that pandemics will be fought successfully. Typically easy well being practices, particularly in hospitals, may also help enormously. And analysis into the animal reservoirs of pathogens, from SARS in bats to HIV in chimpanzees, present promise for our prevention efforts. Calm, clear, and authoritative, Peter Doherty’s Pandemics is likely one of the most critically essential additions to the What Everybody Must Know sequence.
