A Sea in Flames: The Deepwater Horizon Oil Blowout By Carl Safina
Publisher: Cro.,.wn 2011 | 368 Pages | ISBN: 0307887359 | EPUB | 7 MB

A Sea in Flames: The Deepwater Horizon Oil Blowout
MacArthur "Genius" Award-winning oceanographer and conservationist Safina offers an impassioned, on the ground chronicle of the 2010 Gulf oil blowout that surpassed Exxon-Valdez to rank as the worst in history. He breaks down the political and corporate causes and the environmental effects of the spill: the bedding together of government and Big Oil that produced the perfect storm of deregulation and drilling incentives; the intricate chain of misjudgments by BP, Transocean, and Halliburton; the mind-boggling amount of oil-4.9 billion barrels-that gushed into the Gulf of Mexico; the numbers of dolphins, birds, and sea turtles that perished; the rig workers, fishermen, bait shop owners, and restaurateurs who lost their lives or businesses to the spill. Safina's witticisms at times fall flat-he can only refer to Coast Guard Adm.

Andre Wink "Indo-Islamic Society, 14th- 15th Centuries (Al-Hind: The Making of the Indo-Islamic World, Volume III)"
Brill Academic Publishers | 2004-01 | ISBN: 9004135618 | 282 pages | PDF | 2 MB

Indo-Islamic Society, 14th- 15th Centuries (Al-Hind: The Making of the Indo-Islamic World, Volume III)
This third volume of Andre Wink's acclaimed and pioneering Al-Hind:The Making of the Indo-Islamic World takes the reader from the late Mongol invasions to the end of the medieval period and the beginnings of early modern times in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth century. It breaks new ground by focusing attention on the role of geography, and more specifically on the interplay of nomadic, settled and maritime societies. In doing so, it presents a picture of the world of India and the Indian Ocean on the eve of the Portuguese discovery of the searoute: a world without stable parameters, of pervasive geophysical change, inchoate and instable urbanism, highly volatile and itinerant elites of nomadic origin, far-flung merchant diasporas, and a famine- and disease-prone peasantry whose life was a gamble on the monsoon.

The Guitar and Its Music from the Renaissance to the Classical Era by James Tyler

The Guitar and Its Music from the Renaissance to the Classical Era by James Tyler
English | Jan 25, 2007 | ISBN: 0199214778 | 349 Pages | PDF | 20,1 MB

The Guitar and Its Music from the Renaissance to the Classical Era by James Tyler (Repost)
Following on from James Tyler's The Early Guitar: A History and Handbook(O.U.P. 1980) this collaboration with Paul Sparks (their previous book for O.U.P., The Early Mandolin, appeared in 1989), presents new ideas and research on the history and development of the guitar and its music from the Renaissance to the dawn of the Classical era. Tyler's systematic study of the two main guitar types found between about 1550 and 1750 focuses principally on what the sources of the music (published and manuscript) and the writings of contemporary theorists reveal about the nature of the instruments and their roles in the music making of the period. The annotated lists of primary sources, previously published in The Early Guitar but now revised and expanded, constitute the most comprehensive bibliography of Baroque guitar music to date. His appendices of performance practice information should also prove indispensable to performers and scholars alike. Paul Sparks also breaks new ground, offering an extensive study of a period in the guitar's history-notably c.1759-c.1800-which the standard histories usually dismiss in a few short paragraphs. Far from being a dormant instrument at this time, the guitar is shown to have been central to music-making in France, Italy, the Iberian Peninsula, and South America. Sparks provides a wealth of information about players, composers, instruments, and surviving compositions from this neglected but important period, and he examines how the five-course guitar gradually gave way to the six-string instrument, a process that occurred in very different ways (and at different times) in France, Italy, Spain, Germany, and Britain.

The Profitable Supply Chain: A Practitioner's Guide by Ramnath Ganesan
2014 | ISBN: 1484205278 | English | 296 pages | PDF | 7 MB

The Profitable Supply Chain: A Practitioner’s Guide
provides a first-principles approach to understanding the drivers of today’s successful supply chains, covering everything from inventory and demand management to network planning to technology-driven improvements in efficient supply chain management.

Apart from introducing the latest concepts and methods, supply chain expert and consultant Ramnath Ganesan provides numerous real-world examples and cases to clarify how his process-oriented approach can be applied to specific situations, together with spreadsheet functions when appropriate. Practitioners will be especially interested, for example, in the sections on assessing external factors for demand, modifying network routings in response to rising fuel prices, designing a framework for identifying issues and tracking actions, and instituting financial measures to track performance.

The book addresses situations found in such industries as consumer electronics, healthcare, telecommunications, consumer goods, industrial equipment, building materials, and many others. No matter the industry, all firms trading products face operational challenges in producing and/or moving goods in a geographically dispersed global network while fulfilling customer demand in a timely and cost-efficient manner. Such demands can only be supported by a rigorous approach that aligns supply with demand, an approach this book outlines clearly and simply.

The Profitable Supply Chain will prove a valuable reference for production schedulers, plant managers, material managers, demand planners, and supply chain executives. Among other things, it covers the following topics in great depth:

How to design and implement an efficient, scalable supply chain management process from the ground up—or improve the one you have.
How to maintain adequate inventory levels while reducing the cost of supplying products.
How to implement specific metrics that help improve supply chain performance and forecast accuracy.
How to gain competitive advantages through the latest advances in IT architecture and software.
This book will also be of immense value to information technology professionals. That includes enterprise application developers charged with designing and implementing a supply chain IT architecture, as well as those administering and maintaining an enterprise resource planning or advance planning system.

There are few areas in business more ripe for cost reductions than in the supply chain. The Profitable Supply Chain is therefore your go-to resource for making supply chain operations leaner, more efficient, and ultimately far more profitable than they are now.

What youll learn

How to maintain and move inventory optimally in the supply chain.
How to create an inventory strategy for your company.
How to increase the accuracy of your demand forecast.
How to create a sales and operations plan and then improve it on a daily basis.
How to analyze and deal with information distortion when dealing with channel partners.
How to involve company executives in the supply chain management process.
How to manage the evolution of supply chain practices, especially as technology improves and imperatives to "go green" gather force.

John Perkins, "Attack Proof, 2nd Edition"
English | ISBN: 0736078762 | 2009 | 280 pages | PDF | 22 MB

Attack Proof, 2nd Edition
Real violence is not like anything you see in the movies or the ring. Ask any police officer, real violence is total chaos and cannot be defended against with either patterned technique training or sport fighting. This new edition presents a proven personal protection system, called guided chaos, for anticipating and fending off even the most brutal assaults. It's based on the real-world experiences and forensic homicide research of a former New York police officer and instructor for members of the FBI, U.S. Marines, air marshals and security personnel for dignitaries. This book will train readers to become martial realists by preparing them for the unexpected. Rather than robotic techniques or rules-based sport fighting, "Attack Proof" teaches how to adapt, improvise and survive, creating varied defenses spontaneously as needed. With protection strategies for larger assailants, car and airline hijackings, workplace violence, multiple attackers, fighting on the ground and in stairwells, also attacks and defenses using guns, knives, sticks and canes. "Attack Proof" is the next best thing to having your own personal bodyguard. Featuring the same tactics used by select police, military and security professionals to defend themselves, "Attack Proof" is the trusted guide to personal protection when real violence occurs.

American Tanks and AFVs of World War II

American Tanks and AFVs of World War II (General Military) by Mike Green
English | 2014 | ISBN: 1782009310 | ISBN-13: 9781782009313 | 384 pages | EPUB | 109,6 MB
Stuart, Sherman, Lee, and Grant tanks dominated the US Army and Marine Corps armored warfare effort versus Nazi Germany and Tojo's Japan. This book details the full range of these vehicles, giving technical specifications and development features as well as describing how they were manned and fought in battle.

American Tanks and AFVs of World War II
The equipping of the United States military with the weapons it needed to prevail during World War II was an unparalleled example of America's industrial might at the time. Among the many weapons produced by America's workers, tanks rate as an important example with 88,140 built between 1939 and 1945. This was almost twice what Germany and Great Britain built combined during the same period. These tanks not only equipped America's ground forces but saw service with many allied armies.

In addition to the 18,620 tank-based variants, such as armored engineering vehicles, self-propelled artillery, armored recovery vehicles, and tank destroyers, American factories went on to design and build thousands of wheeled armored cars for reconnaissance purposes and armored half-tracks to transport the infantry into battle behind the tanks. Like the tanks, American armored half-tracks were modified to serve a wide variety of jobs including self-propelled artillery, tank destroyers and antiaircraft vehicles. So useful were these vehicles that they would remain in service with foreign armies for decades after World War II.

To complement its inventory of tanks and armored fighting vehicles the American military industrial complex also designed and built over 18,000 amphibian tractors. Appearing in both unarmored and armored variants they went into combat with a wide variety of armaments. Referred to as the Landing Vehicle Tracked (LVT) they would serve not only with the U.S. Marine Corps who often called them "Amtracs" but the US Army who referred to them as the "Water Buffalo." They would allow the American military to take the fight to the far flung Japanese Empire wherever it had established itself in the vast reaches of the Pacific Area of Operations. These same vehicles would also see service in the ETO with the US Army and allied forces when it came time to cross various water obstacles used by the German military as defensive barriers.
