The Universal Peace Federation's forums and conferences focus on volatile areas... More > of tension and conflict including in the Middle East, East Asia, South Asia, the Caucasus, the Americas, and Europe, and examine topics such as security, trade, human rights, global economics, energy resources, military build-ups, climate change. One of the missions of UPF is to work with scholars and policymakers to educate and alert public opinion, especially in the U.S. and industrialized democracies, of the dangers posed by conflict and other destabilizing forces to the international democratic system. The conclusions and deliberations of these forums have been compiled into this publication in the belief that an informed public opinion is the foundation of a democratic and free society in which stable and sustainable security can be established and lasting peace eventually achieved.

Why not SWITCH to natural, non-polluting, inexpensive fuels, such as solar, wind, water, etc? TWENTY-FIRST CENURY'S FUEL SUFFICIENCY ROADMAP carries this message of hope. You can make RENEWABLE ENERGIES' consumption to replace fossil fuels' consuption, possible.< Less
THE GALACTIC CENTRE 2012 and the Great Waves Coming in December By Susan Seymour Hedke
eBook (PDF): $9.49
(5 Ratings)
Climate is changing, natural disasters like earthquakes are increasing. What is the reason? The Mayan Prophecy warns of a disastrous end to this age, most likely involving earthquakes as the Fifth... More > Sun comes to an end on 21st December 2012. What did the ancient Maya base their prediction upon? After the Tsunami occurred on 26 December 2004, the author made the discovery of a connection with the Mayan End Date. The book looks at the nature of the Galactic Centre and the role it plays in disasters of the past, and may play in coming years, most likely in the month of December. Much of this is done through including the Galactic Centre in the astrological chart. Moreover, there is evidence of an earlier galactic cosmology shared by all deeply rooted socieies in which the Milky Way was seen as a mother goddess, and this understanding is also shared in the Bible.< Less

Fluid dynamics and heat transfer By Brian Storey
Paperback: $10.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book provides a foundation for the study of the transport of mass, heat, and momentum by a fluid. The applications are many. It is fair to say fluids are integral to life as we know it. Whether... More > we are discussing the transport of oxygen and nutrients throughout the body or transport at the molecular and cellular level, fluids are part of the game. The oceans and atmospheres are fluids and whether we are interested in predicting tomorrow’s weather or trying to understand global climate change, the equations developed in this book provide the basic foundation of those computer models. The conversion of energy as we know it today from the combustion of fossil fuel is dependent on flow, heat and mass transfer. Developing possible renewable sources of energy from wind, tidal, wave, or solar require a solid understanding of transport phenomena. We are so accustomed to living in fluids, that it is easy to forget or underestimate their importance.< Less

Notable for their history,... More > which stretches back thousands of years, it was with this in mind that Synge conducted his travels of the islands. He attempts to catalog the unique culture of the isolated islands, noting how the peoples adapted to the rugged and adverse climate. Although Synge - a cultured, literate Irishman - thought the people simple, he had the greatest respect for their adept use of boats. Already the winds of change beckon the younger members of the Aran community; Michael, realizing that there is no future on the bleak and grey isles, departs to seek his fortune elsewhere. Synge couples these accounts with observations of the primitive culture; there were no wheeled vehicles on the Aran Isles at the time, and many of the residents only spoke traditional Irish, rather than the dominant English.< Less

More > century Russia - old-style liberals, widely represented in the elder generation would clash with the bold nihilists, many of whom were young. Characters from the former group are represented with marked humbleness and nostalgia, while those of the latter group are inclined to pointed declarations espousing the avant-garde philosophy of the time. Old institutions such as the Russian Orthodox church are openly challenged by characters in the text, while the young nihilists Bazarov and Arkady grapple with their affections for Madame Odintsova, an elegant, cultured and financially independent woman.< Less
