It’s just one more body in one more destroyed house. In New Orleans, after Katrina, there are thousands of destroyed houses and hundreds of body yet to be found. Can one more matter? It does to Micky Knight as she takes on the search to find out who the woman was and why she might have died there. But is Micky searching for justice or just doing anything to avoid confronting the ways Katrina destroyed everything that had tied her to New Orleans? Micky’s investigation leads to a tangle of greed and deceit that stretches back generations. Someone is using the destruction wrought by the flooding to finish what was started a hundred years ago. To stop them Micky will have to risk not just her life, but any chance to reconnect with Cordelia and rebuild the life she had before Katrina. But if she doesn’t stop them, a young teen whose only crime was wanting to help the destroyed city, will be the next body left in an abandoned house. The sixth book in the Micky Knight mystery series.

Although tobacco is a legal substance, many governments around the world have introduced legislation to restrict smoking and access to tobacco products. Smokefree critically examines these changes, from the increasing numbers of places being designated as ‘smokefree’ to changes in cigarette packaging and the portrayal of smoking in popular culture. Unlike existing texts, this book neither advances a public health agenda nor condemns the erosion of individual rights. Instead, Simone Dennis takes a classical anthropological approach to present the first agenda-free, full-length study of smoking. Observing and analysing smoking practices and environments, she investigates how the social, moral, political and legal atmosphere of ‘smokefree’ came into being and examines the ideas about smoke, air, the senses, space, and time which underlie it. Looking at the impact on public space and individuals, she reveals broader findings about the relationship between the state, agents, and what is seen to constitute ‘the public’. Enriched with ethnographic vignettes from the author’s ten years of fieldwork in Australia, Smokefree is a challenging, important book which demands to be read and discussed by anyone with an interest in anthropology, sociology, political science, human geography, and public health.

"I WAS passing through the waiting-room of the Morning Journal on a certain evening last year when my attention was drawn to a man seated in a corner. He was dressed in black and his appearance was that of the deepest dejection. In fact upon his face I read the most melancholy despair. He was not weeping, his eyes were dry and almost expressionless and received the impression of exterior objects like motionless ice. He had placed upon his knees a small oaken chest, ornamented with ironwork. His hands were crossed over this object and hung down, accentuating his dejected appearance." -Exerpted from "The Double Life"

This book is the second volume in the series "Contact Angle, Wettability and Adhesion." The premier volume was published in 2013. Even a cursory glance at the literature show that in recent years the interest in understanding and controlling wetting behavior has grown exponentially. Currently, there is tremendous research activity in rendering surfaces superhydrophobic, superhydrophilic, superoleophobic, superoleophilic, omniphobic and omniphilic because of their applications in many technologically important fields. Also the durability or robustness of materials with such super" characteristics is extremely significant, as well as the utilization of "green" (biobased) materials to obtain such surfaces. This book containing 19 articles reflects more recent developments in certain areas covered in its predecessor volume as well as it includes some topics which were not covered before. Concomitantly, this book provides a medium to keep abreast of the latest research activity and developments in the arena of contact angle, wettability and adhesion. The topics discussed include: Understanding of wetting hysteresis; fabrication of superhydrophobic materials; plasma treatment to achieve superhydrophilic surfaces; highly liquid repellent textiles; modification of paper surfaces to control liquid wetting and adhesion; Cheerios effect and its control; engineering materials with superwettability; laser ablation to create micro/nano-patterned surfaces; liquid repellent amorphous carbon nanoparticle networks; mechanical durability of liquid repellent surfaces; wetting of solid walls and spontaneous capillary flow; relationship between roughness and oleophilicity; superhydrophobic and superoleophobic green materials; computational analysis of wetting on hydrophobic surfaces: application to self-cleaning mechanisms; bubble adhesion to superhydrophilic surfaces; surface free energy of superhydrophobic materials; and role of surface free energy in pharmaceutical tablet tensile strength.

This concise book is an introduction to the role of international law in international relations. Written for lawyers and non-lawyers alike, the book first appeared in 1928 and attracted a wide readership. This new edition builds on Brierly's scholarship and his idea that law must serve a social purpose. Previous editions of The Law of Nations have been the standard introduction to international law for decades, and are widely popular in many different countries due to the simplicity and brevity of the prose style. Providing a comprehensive overview of international law, this new version of the classic book retains the original qualities and is again essential reading for all those interested in learning what role the law plays in international affairs. The reader will find chapters on traditional and contemporary topics such as: the basis of international obligation, the role of the UN and the International Criminal Court, the emergence of new states, the acquisition of territory, the principles covering national jurisdiction and immunities, the law of treaties, the different ways of settling international disputes, and the rules on resort to force and the prohibition of aggression.

The book encompasses a wide range of topics on practical geography taught to the B.A./B.Sc. students of Indian universities. Numerous examples and diagrams have been included in the text with the sole aim of enabling the students to have a comprehensive grasp of the subject. Attempt has also been made to present a well-balanced treatment of each topic. Topics like measurement of ground areas from maps, determination of class-interval for choropleth maps, representation of agricultural, industrial and transport data, choice of map projections, interpretation of topo-sheets, etc., have been included in this book and discussed in detail. Books treating various aspects of practical geography need regular up-dates. Therefore, the latest available material has been used to update this edition. Guidance of learned college and university teachers has enabled the author to present the subject-matter clearly and accurately. It is hoped that in addition to developing a keen interest for practical geography, it will form the basis for a more advanced study of the subject among the students.

ZERO HOUR Deep below the surface of the South Pacific, the U.S. Navy cargo ship Panjanq floated, delicately suspended above the ocean bottom. The ultra-expert diving team of Cas Bonner and Steve Chaffee and the beautiful, brilliant undersea geologist Napah Gilchrist knew it was there. They also knew that aboard was a weapon triggered to explode the world's hope for peace. They even knew the time that the instrument of global destruction was computer-programmed to be launched on its mega-murderous mission. But one thing they did not know. How to stop it. And they had just twelve minutes to find out...

Example in this ebook "Our Planet is surrounded by two great oceans," says Dr. Maury, the eminent American savant: "the one visible, the other invisible; one is under foot, the other over head. One entirely envelopes it, the other covers about two-thirds of its surface." It is proposed in "The Ocean World" to give a brief record of the Natural History of one of those great oceans and its living inhabitants, with as little of the nomenclature of Science, and as few of the repulsive details of Anatomy, as is consistent with clearness of expression; to describe the ocean in its majestic calm and angry agitation; to delineate its inhabitants in their many metamorphoses; the cunning with which they attack or evade their enemies; their instructive industry; their quarrels, their combats, and their loves. The learned Schleiden eloquently paints the living wonders of the deep: "If we dive into the liquid crystal of the Indian Ocean, the most wondrous enchantments are opened to us, reminding us of the fairy tales of childhood's dreams. The strangely-branching thickets bear living flowers. Dense masses of Meandrineas and Astreas contrast with the leafy, cup-shaped expansions of the Explanarias, and the variously-branching Madrepores, now spread out like fingers, now rising in trunk-like branches, and now displaying an elegant array of interlacing tracery. The colouring surpasses everything; vivid greens alternate with brown and yellow; rich tints, ranging from purple and deepest blue to a pale reddish-brown. Brilliant rose, yellow, or peach-coloured Nullipores overgrow the decaying masses: they themselves being interwoven with the pearl-coloured plates of the Retipores, rivalling the most delicate ivory carvings. Close by wave the yellow and lilac Sea-fans (Gorgonia), perforated like delicate trellis-work. The bright sand of the bottom is covered with a thousand strange forms of sea-urchins and star-fishes. The leaf-like Flustræ and Escharæ adhere like mosses and lichens to the branches of coral—the yellow, green, and purple-striped limpets clinging to their trunks. The sea-anemones expand their crowns of tentacula upon the rugged rocks or on flat sands, looking like beds of variegated ranunculuses, or sparkling like gigantic cactus blossoms, shining with brightest colours. "Around the branches of the coral shrubs play the humming-birds of the ocean: little fishes sparkling with red or blue metallic glitter, or gleaming in golden green or brightest silvery lustre; like spirits of the deep, the delicate milk-white jelly-fishes float softly through the charmed world. Here gleam the violet and gold-green Isabelle, and the flaming yellow, black, and vermilion-striped Coquette, as they chase their prey; there the band-fish shoots snake-like through the thicket, resembling a silvery ribbon glittering with rose and azure hue. Then come the fabulous cuttle-fishes, in all the diaphanous colours of the rainbow, but with no definite outline. "When day declines, with the shades of night this fantastic garden is lighted up with renewed splendour. Millions of microscopic medusæ and crustaceans, like so many glowing sparks, dance through the gloom. The Sea-pen waves in a greenish phosphorescent light. Whatever is beautiful or wondrous among fishes, Echinoderms, jelly-fishes and polypi and molluscs, is crowded into the warm and crystal waters of the Tropical ocean." To be continue in this ebook

I thought, too, of the first and most significant realization which the reading of astronomy imposes: that of the exceeding delicacy of the world's position; how, indeed, we are dependent for life, and all that now is, upon the small matter of the tilt of the poles; and that we, as men, are products, as it were, not only of earth's precarious position, but of her more precarious tilt.

This carefully crafted ebook: "R. AUSTIN FREEMAN Ultimate Collection: 27 Novels & 60+ Short Stories, including Dr. Thorndyke Series, Romney Pringle Adventures and Many More British Mysteries (Illustrated)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Richard Austin Freeman (1862-1943) was a British writer of detective stories, mostly featuring the forensic investigator Dr. Thorndyke. He introduced the inverted detective story; a crime fiction in which the commission of the crime is described at the beginning, usually including the identity of the perpetrator, with the story then describing the detective's attempt to solve the mystery. Many of the Dr. Thorndyke stories involve genuine, but often quite arcane, points of scientific knowledge, from areas such as tropical medicine and toxicology.
