How old are you? Where are you now? To answer these question is undoubtedly not difficult. But which answers would we get addressing the same questions to the entire Humanity? At what stage do we... More > find humanity? How long will we be able to live on our planet? Can we measure the speed by which our progress goes on? Centuries and millennium to proceed from the simple wheel to the car and few decades to arrive to robots and mobile phones! How so? Why? An “apprentice philosopher” tries to answer with the aid of Mathematics - History - Philosophy - Science-fiction. A theory which can be resumed, challenged, updated, computed again by everyone of you.< Less

The course of history is a pendulum, swinging from one extreme to another… 'Weasel' is the story of an unfortunate misfit, a member of a Humanity that has spiralled further and further out... More > into the stars, held together by the draconian government of the Correctorate, universally dubbed ‘The Big Regime’. Weasel is a "gutter-surfer" – a soldier in the criminal Underworld, formed from the uneducated social scum that the Correctorate has left to fester neglected for centuries. In the Underworld’s ongoing war of spite against the Regime, Weasel finds himself a casualty of misfortune, and with exile or death as his only options, he flees from his homeworld. A new planet means a new start for Weasel. With his Underworld past behind him, it’s the perfect chance to try and get out of the gutter forever. But as Weasel’s efforts to make a fresh start become more complicated, he comes to learn about Humanity before the Correctorate. And how the pendulum of history is ready to swing back again.< Less
A Method for Human Identification Using Static, Activity-Specific Parameters By Amos Johnson
Paperback: $36.42
Ships in 3-5 business days
In this dissertation, a method for human identification using static, activity-specific parameters is presented. This method recovers static body and stride parameters during the gait cycles of... More > humans. Our technique is classified as a gait biometric; however, it does not directly analyze dynamic gait patterns, but uses the action of walking to extract relative body and stride parameters. This approach is an example of an activity-specific biometric: a method of extracting identifying properties of an individual or of an individual's behavior that is applicable only when a person is performing that specific action.< Less
Modern Science of Biomechanics & Weight Gain and Weight Loss By Luke Tunyich
Paperback: $39.60
Ships in 3-5 business days
Third Edition - Modern Science of Biomechanics & Weight Gain and Weight Loss - (Paperback - Black & White interior) In this book, there is a ground breaking discovery of the biological basis... More > of fat formation on the body and the mechanism underlying body fat distribution. Discoveries revealed in this book will enable us to efficiently and effectively solve the problem of obesity. Also, this book will explain why humans are the only ones who are able to gain over 500% or more body weight above their normal body weight, and why all other species do not. In the second part of this book, POSTURAL AND MOTOR SKILL EXERCISES are described for the first time ever, which will enable everyone in a short time to cure obesity and obesity related health conditions.< Less
The Spinal Engine By Serge Gracovetsky
Paperback: $115.00
Ships in 3-5 business days
This book deals with the human spine with particular emphasis on the lumbar spine. Human gait is traditionally believed to be the exclusive function of the legs. The book presents arguments and... More > data that challenge that belief. It proposes that the spine is the primary engine that makes us move. This engine, inherited from our fish ancestors, was never transferred to any extremities during our long evolutionary journey. From the theoretical and clinical analysis of the normal function of the spine, one can describe the changes that degrade its function. This forces us to define normality in terms of functionality, rather than anatomical perfection. A procedure for the objective measure of spinal function is proposed, and its clinical use discussed. A 35 minutes movie on the function of the spine in both MOV and WMV formats is included.< Less
COMPUTER SECURITY: FROM PASSWORDS TO BEHAVIORAL BIOMETRICS By Roman Yampolskiy

This book is a review of published research in computer security, user authentication, intrusion detection, game security and behavioral biometrics. We analyze previous studies and point out trends... More > and propose taxonomies which make understanding and improvement on previous work easier. In particular the majority of contributions in this book is to the field of behavioral biometrics. Research in biometric technologies offers one of the most promising approaches to providing user friendly and reliable control methodology for access to computer systems, networks and workplaces. Majority of such research is aimed at studying well established physical biometrics such as fingerprint or iris recognition. Behavioral biometrics are usually only briefly mentioned and only those which are in large part based on muscle control such as keystrokes, gait or signature are well investigated. This book was written to fill the coverage gap with respect to this promising technology.< Less

Humans have used body characteristics such as face, voice, gait, etc. from the day that mankind existed to recognize each other. Some characteristics don’t change over time and some do. And...
