Jennifer M. Groh, "Making Space: How the Brain Knows Where Things Are"
English | ISBN: 0674863216 | 2014 | 218 pages | PDF | 5 MB

Making Space: How the Brain Knows Where Things Are
Knowing where things are seems effortless. Yet our brains devote tremendous computational power to figuring out the simplest details about spatial relationships. Going to the grocery store or finding our cell phone requires sleuthing and coordination across different sensory and motor domains. Making Space" traces this mental detective work to explain how the brain creates our sense of location. But it goes further, to make the case that spatial processing permeates all our cognitive abilities, and that the brain s systems for thinking about space may be the systems of thought itself. Our senses measure energy in the form of light, sound, and pressure on the skin, and our brains evaluate these measurements to make inferences about objects and boundaries. Jennifer Groh describes how eyes detect electromagnetic radiation, how the brain can locate sounds by measuring differences of less than one one-thousandth of a second in how long they take to reach each ear, and how the ear s balance organs help us monitor body posture and movement. The brain synthesizes all this neural information so that we can navigate three-dimensional space. But the brain s work doesn t end there. Spatial representations do double duty in aiding memory and reasoning. This is why it is harder to remember how to get somewhere if someone else is driving, and why, if we set out to do something and forget what it was, returning to the place we started can jog our memory. In making space the brain uses powers we did not know we have."

Flashforward is a science fiction novel by Canadian author Robert J. Sawyer first published in 1999. The novel is set in 2009. At CERN, the Large Hadron Collider accelerator is performing a run to search for the Higgs boson. The experiment has a unique side effect; the entire human race loses their consciousness for about two minutes. During that time, nearly everyone sees themselves roughly twenty-one years and six months in the future. Each individual experiences the future through the senses of his or her future self. This "flashforward" results in countless deaths and accidents involving vehicles, aircraft, and any other device needing human control at the time of the experiment. The novel inspired the 2009 television series FlashForward.

Environmental Diversity in Architecture

FREEDownload : Environmental Diversity in Architecture

Environmental Diversity in Architecture by Mary Ann Steane
English | 2004 | ISBN: 041531478X | 256 Pages | PDF | 17 MB
This book takes the position that the dynamic of the architectural environment is a key aspect of good design, yet one which is not well anticipated or understood.

Environmental Diversity in Architecture
Environmental variety is a design characteristic closely related to our experience of architecture – an architecture of the senses. Each chapter demonstrates how an understanding of a particular context or environmental characteristic in dynamic terms informs design. The book is an antidote to the misconceptions of 'optimum' environmental performance or fixed criteria, instead embracing the richness of environmental variety.

Ideokinesis: A Creative Approach to Human Movement and Body Alignment by Andre Bernard
Mabel Elsworth Todd pioneered ideokinesis in the 1920s. Her book, The Thinking Body, described new ways to use all the senses as well as inner feeling and imagination to retrain the body to move with ease and balance. The system became an invaluable tool for generations of dancers, actors, and performance artists, thanks largely to one of its most important teachers, André Bernard (1924-2003). This book presents an introduction to the practice as well as a lengthy interview with Bernard and two meticulously detailed workshop protocols illustrated with 52 photographs and line drawings.

Book Name : A guide to dissection of the human body [Team Furious]

Book Author : F. Peter Lisowski
Book Release : 2004
Book Pages : 435
Book Format : PDF
Book Info : In this second edition of A Guide to Dissection of the Human Body, certain dissecting instructions have been revised to increase clarity. Methodical and comprehensive, the guide complements various anatomy courses. The terminology has been checked and brought up to date, in accordance with the latest version of Terminologia Anatomica (1998). The major aim of this guide remains – to provide a well-rounded dissecting manual that reinforces, but does not replace, a textbook of human anatomy. The details of human anatomy covered here are of interest and importance primarily in a medical context. To this end the guide has been designed for medical, dental, osteopathy and physiotherapy students, and for students of alternative medicine where dissection of the human body is required. It has also been planned for postgraduate students proceeding to specialise in the various clinical (surgical, radiological, emergency medical, and gynaecological) sciences and thus need to revise their anatomical knowledge through dissection. It has to be stressed, learning anatomy is most efficient and retention is highest when didactic study is combined with the experience of dissection. In using this method one observes, palpates and moves parts of the body. It is a three-dimensional and visuo-tactile approach to the examination of the human body. Undoubtedly dissection reinforces and expands the knowledge gained from the textbook and from atlases and computerized-anatomy programs. The Guide is flexible enough for use in long as well as short courses, and is thus structured in such a way that the dissection of the body can be completed in 100 to 160 hours. It provides a link to real, living and variable anatomy.

Thai Family Cookbook: Healthy, Nutritious, Easy Recipes by Ananada Nantaharn
English | Dec 28, 2014 | ASIN: B00RKNR6SO | 38 Pages | EPUB/MOBI/AZW3/PDF (Converted) | 2 MB
Have you ever taken a whirlwind tour of Thailand? Never mind if you have not. You can do that with your taste buds from the comforts of your home. Once you savor Thai food, there is no looking back.

Thai Family Cookbook: Healthy, Nutritious, Easy Recipes
Thai food is simple, a great combination of sweet, salty, sour, and bitter and a variety of chilies although Thai cuisine is known for being spicy with lots of fresh herbs. The vast variety of food comes from 4 regions of Thailand namely Northern, Northeastern, Southern and Central. The main concept is to balance these flavors to activate your senses. The most commonly used herbs are lemon grass, cilantro, basil, mint, etc.
Green, yellow, or red curries are some of the most popularly known Thai dishes. The authentic Thai curry pastes are made with a mortar and pestle, which is a must in every Thai kitchen. If you don't own one, then you can roll the herbs with a rolling pin to release the flavors. Thai curries are generally eaten with rice. Rice is a staple in Thai cooking that you find it in soups and salads too. Sticky rice is a delicacy.
Thai people eat anything at any meal. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, a typical Thai meal consists of a soup, a curry dish, a dip with vegetables and fish, salad and rice or noodles. The meal is served at once instead of serving in courses.
We have provided a wide range of recipes like breakfast, lunch and dinner. The dishes can be varied to suit all palates. In this eBook, we have described ways to make various authentic, lip smacking and healthy Thai recipes in an easy way.
The ingredients you need can be easily found in the super markets. The nutritional values given per serving are an estimate and should be used for approximation only.
Happy Thai cooking!
