Wie die Spanische Grippe die Gesellschaft veränderte
Author: Laura Spinney
Publisher: Carl Hanser Verlag GmbH Co KG
Der Erste Weltkrieg geht zu Ende, und eine weitere Katastrophe fordert viele Millionen Tote: die Spanische Grippe. Binnen weniger Wochen erkrankt ein Drittel der Weltbevölkerung. Trotzdem sind die Auswirkungen auf Gesellschaft, Politik und Kultur weitgehend unbekannt. Ob in Europa, Asien oder Afrika, an vielen Orten brachte die Grippe die Machtverhältnisse ins Wanken, womöglich beeinflusste sie die Verhandlung des Versailler Vertrags und verursachte Modernisierungsbewegungen. Anhand von Schicksalen auf der ganzen Welt öffnet Laura Spinney das Panorama dieser Epoche. Sie füllt eine klaffende Lücke in der Geschichtsschreibung und erlaubt einen völlig neuen Blick auf das Schicksalsjahr 1918.

A Case for Meaning in a Material World
Author: Bob Edwards
Psychiatrist and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl said, "Man's search for meaning is the primary motivation in his life." Yet some contemporary voices claim that increased knowledge of the material world must diminish our sense of meaning. Physicist Steven Weinberg said, "The more the universe seems comprehensible, the more it also seems pointless." Many people hold the material and meaningful perspectives separate in their minds, in a state of uneasy truce. The Heart of the Matter: A Case for Meaning in a Material World tells us that this split vision is not necessary, and shows us how the two views can be harmonized to give depth to our picture of the world. It looks at current scientific observations from astronomy, biology and physics, as well as insights from mathematics, philosophy, psychology and religion. We are left with a sense of wonder at both the mechanics and the values of the world, the "how" and the "why" of events. This book will appeal to everyone fascinated by how our world works, and especially to those who wonder how such marvelous mechanisms can leave room for the values and purpose that give meaning to our lives, and to our world.

A Journey to the Heart of Matter
Author: Frank Close,Michael Marten,Christine Sutton
Publisher: OUP Oxford
During the 20th century, scientists discovered what the Universe is made of; as the 21st century begins, they are preparing experiments to find out how it came to be like this. This great adventure, which will involve a metaphorical journey back in time to within a billionth of a second of the Big Bang, is the latest stage in the quest to understand the nature of the matter that makes our Universe and the forces that govern it. The Particle Odyssey takes the reader on a spectacularly illustrated journey to the heart of matter. In clear, non-technical language the authors describe the key experiments and fundamental discoveries which have led to our current understanding of the origins and nature of the material universe. In this fascinating book, you will find individual 'portraits' of all the major subatomic particles, from the electron to the top quark. The authors describe the history of experimental particle physics: its origins in the discovery of X-rays in 1895; the dissection of the atom by Rutherford and others; the unexpected revelations of the cosmic rays; the explosion of new particles in the 1950s and 60s; the discovery of quarks and the rise of the 'standard model' in the last part of the 20th century. And they also look at the great challenges that face physicists today—where did antimatter go? what is dark matter? can there be a theory of everything?—and the experiments they are devising to explore them. The Particle Odyssey brings together and presents with style over 100 of the best images of particle 'events': mysterious, abstract, beautiful pictures of the tracks of subatomic particles as they speed, curve, dance, or explode through cloud and bubble chambers, stacks of photographic emulsion, and the giant multi-element detectors of modern experiments. Here are spiralling electrons, the tell-tale 'vees' of strange particles, matter and antimatter born from raw energy, energetic jets of particles spraying out from the decay points of quarks and gluons. A further 250 pictures, many taken specially for this book, illustrate the laboratories, experiments, and personalities of over a century of particle physics. This superb book is a testament to the work of 'big' science and one of the great detective stories of our age.

"Mit der Erzählung »Herz der Finsternis« gelangte Joseph Conrad zu Weltruhm. Der ungewöhnlich symbolreiche Text wird seit Erscheinen immer wieder aufs Neue interpretiert. Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts, der Flussdampferkapitän Marlow reist im Auftrag einer belgischen Handelskompanie tief in den Kongo. Auf seiner Reise erlebt er unverständliche Wirrnisse, Sinnlosigkeit und eine unvorstellbare Ausbeutung der Einheimischen. Die Reise auf dem Fluss entwickelt sich immer mehr zur Reise in sein eigenes Unterbewusstsein, in ein finsteres Labyrinth von Lüge und Schuld. Marlow trifft auf den berüchtigten Elfenbeinhändler Kurtz. Dieser hat aus seinem Handelsposten ein Zentrum des Bösen gemacht und sich so eine machtvolle Position erschaffen, von der aus er scheinbar frei schalten und walten darf. »Herz der Finsternis« hat von Anfang an Leser und Interpreten fasziniert und hat bis heute nichts von seiner Aktualität eingebüßt. Der Stoff diente als Vorlage mehrerer Verfilmungen. Am bekanntesten: »Apocalypse Now« von Francis Ford Coppola mit Marlon Brando in der Rolle des charismatischen und geheimnisvollen Ausbeuters (diesmal) asiatischer Einheimischer während des Vietnamkrieges und »Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes« von Herzog mit Klaus Kinski als wahnsinnigen Eroberer und Vollstrecker eines ausbeuterischen, europäischen Kolonialismus in Süd-Amerika. 1.

“M’lord, where have ye been since the ball last night? The whole servant staff has been looking for ye,” said a very worried servant of the young prince. “Robert, I was out with a maiden,” the prince said in a matter a fact-ly tone. He had come in very late in the afternoon the next day after the royal ball. He had a certain glow about him with his clothes wrinkled from lying on the floor for a good majority of the day while he was bedding a willing young woman.

In the early years of my adult life I found myself face to face with Matters of the Heart. Various life changing situations revealed feelings of extreme loneliness, conditional love, and indescribable rejection. These situations had me going as far as questioning my own self-worth and as a result I felt the need to pen my every emotion, feeling, and state of being it was during this time I felt the urging need not to fall victim to rejection's trance. As I began to heal and metamorphosis out of a state of pain, hurt, and depression and into true unadulterated happiness, unconditional love, and a heart and mind that is in alignment with the true lover of my soul... I began to believe in love once again. Assembled before you is a collection of poetic thought-provoking poems that will surely pierce the deepest crevices of the heart. It is my hope that you will find yourself once again believing in love."No words can express how talented you truly are. You make the words come to life. Sends chills down my spine"Benita M.

It allows you to explore your feelings and gives others the opportunity to take that journey with you"Dana C. "Awesome man!!!"George T
