Bob Dylan – Chronicles: Volume One by Bob Dylan
This is the first spellbinding volume of the memoir of one of the greatest musical legends of all time. In CHRONICLES Volume One, Bob Dylan takes us back to the early 1960s when he arrived in New York to launch his phenomenal career. Dylan's New York is a magical city of possibilities — smoky, nightlong parties; literary awakenings; transient loves and unbreakable friendships. Elegiac observations are punctuated by jabs of memories, penetrating and tough. By turns revealing, poetical, passionate and witty, CHRONICLES: Volume One is a mesmerizing window on Bob Dylan's thoughts and influences. Utilizing his unparalleled gifts of storytelling and the exquisite expressiveness that are the hallmarks of his music, Bob Dylan turns CHRONICLES: Volume One into a poignant reflection on life, and the people and places that helped shape the man and the art. 'Dylan's writing never loses its richness, its sense of crystalline observation. He's unexpectedly frank about his own shortcomings – but not too frank. Throughout, a careful balance has been struck between elusiveness and revelation. Readers hoping to gain admittance to Dylan's inner sanctum may be surprised by how far in they are allowed to venture' – John Preston, SUNDAY TELEGRAPH 'An extremely good book indeed, actually a great one. If you are not weeping with gratitude by the end, then frankly, the age has passed you by . . . I cannot remember a book that has made me happier than this one' – Bryan Appleyard, SUNDAY TIMES 'Witty and beautifully written . . . Anyone who grew up with his music is bound to find it fascinating' – GUARDIAN

London: A Social History
Roy Porter, a historian of formidable range, turns to urban history in this marvellously lucid, informative and passionate book… Porter's facts are always at the service of the narrative, which has a finely maintained momentum, balancing statistics with the words of historians, diarists and novelists, poets and churchmen: Pepys, Boswell, Fielding, Walpole, Blake, Mayhew, Wells, Woolf, Spark,… a timely and brilliant book.' CLAIRE TOMALIN, EVENING STANDARD 'A vivid celebration of the city, but also an elegy for its decline, bubbling with statistics and anecdote, from Boadicea to Betjeman.' RICHARD HOLMES, DAILY TELEGRAPH BOOKS OF THE YEAR

Ashes 2011: England's Record-Breaking Series Victory by Gideon Haigh
English | 2011 | ISBN: 1845136136 | 256 pages | EPUB | 1,5 MB

Ashes 2011: England’s Record-Breaking Series Victory
Most people gave England a modest chance of success. Some, like Glenn McGrath, insisted that history would repeat itself and Australia would administer another 5-0 whitewash. What no one anticipated was that the 2010-11 Ashes Tests would see one of the most complete performances ever by an England touring side, the first Ashes victory on Australian soil for 24 years, with, uniquely, three innings victories. It was a series, indeed a tour, full of remarkable records, from the bats of Alastair Cook and Jonathan Trott, and the ball of James Anderson and Graham Swann. Every member of the side made crucial contributions-even those like Chris Tremlett and Tim Bresnan who had not originally been first choices for the Tests. Now, Gideon Haigh, "one of the best living writers on cricket" (Daily Telegraph), tells the full story of this amazing sporting achievement. Beginning with the build-up to the series-Australia going into it on the back of an uncharacteristic losing run, England after a year of quietly solid consolidation-he covers each Test, day by day, in pithy match reports and elegant analyses. Ashes 2011 is the perfect way to re-live a memorable sporting triumph.

Plant Electrophysiology: Signaling and Responses by Alexander Volkov
English | 2012-05-04 | ISBN: 3642291090 | PDF | 450 pages | 7,4 MB

Plant Electrophysiology: Signaling and Responses
This book, written by the leading experts in the field of plant electrophysiology, provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the current state of knowledge on electrical signaling and responses in plant physiology. It covers a significant interdisciplinary area for a broad range of researchers, emphasizing the physical, chemical, biological, and technological aspects of plant electrophysiology, while also demonstrating the role of electrochemical processes and ion channels in plant life cycles.

Separate chapters describe the electrophysiology of the Venus flytrap, the Telegraph plant, Mimosa pudica, and other interesting plant species. Subsequent sections focus on mechanisms of plant movement, the role of ion channels, morphing structures, and the effects of electrical signal transduction on photosynthesis and respiration. Further topics include the electrophysiology of plant-insect interactions, how plants sense different environmental stresses and stimuli, and how phytoactuators respond to them. All chapters analyze the generation and transmission of electrical signals in plants.

A Century of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT, 1882-1982 by Nilo A Lindgren
English | May 20, 1985 | ISBN: 0262231190 | 480 Pages | PDF | 68 MB
Electrical engineering is a protean profession. Today the field embraces many disciplines that seem far removed from its roots in the telegraph, telephone, electric lamps, motors, and generators. To a remarkable extent, this chronicle of change and growth at a single institution is a capsule history of the discipline and profession of electrical engineering as it developed worldwide.

A Century of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT, 1882-1982
Even when MIT was not leading the way, the department was usually quick to adapt to changing needs, goals, curricula, and research programs. What has remained constant throughout is the dynamic interaction of teaching and research, flexibility of administration, the interconnections with industrial progress and national priorities.The book's text and many photographs introduce readers to the renowned teachers and researchers who are still well known in engineering circles, among them: Vannevar Bush, Harold Hazen, Edward Bowles, Gordon Brown, Harold Edgerton, Ernst Guillemin, Arthur von Hippel, and Jay Forrester.The book covers the department's major areas of activity – electrical power systems, servomechanisms, circuit theory, communications theory, radar and microwaves (developed first at the famed Radiation Laboratory during World War II), insulation and dielectrics, electronics, acoustics, and computation. This rich history of accomplishments shows moreover that years before "Computer Science" was added to the department's name such pioneering results in computation and control as Vannevar Bush's Differential Analyzer, early cybernetic devices and numerically controlled servomechanisms, the Whirlwind computer, and the evolution of time-sharing computation had already been achieved.Karl Wildes has been associated with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science since the 1920s, and is now Professor Emeritus. Nilo Lindgren, an electrical engineering graduate of MIT and professional scientific and technical journalist for many years, is at present affiliated with the Electric Power Resèarch Institute in Palo Alto, California.

Amphibious Thing: The Life of Lord Hervey

Amphibious Thing: The Life of Lord Hervey by Lucy Moore
English | Dec 22, 2014 | ISBN: 067087986X, 0140273646 | ASIN: B00RD0FUAU | 351 Pages | EPUB/MOBI/AZW3/PDF (Converted) | 4 MB
Lord Hervey — strikingly handsome courtier, confidant of Queen Caroline and right-hand man to Prime Minister Walpole — was the darling of the glittering court of George II.

Amphibious Thing: The Life of Lord Hervey
Painted by Hogarth and satirized by Fielding and Pope, he counted among his friends and enemies some of the most brilliant men and women of the eighteenth century.

In private, however, he led a rakish life that was — even by the mores of the age’s debauched aristocracy — scandalous.

In ‘Amphibious Thing’, Lucy Moore brings to life the intrigues, the illicit liaisons and the petty rivalries that surrounded Lord Hervey and that finally led to his fall from grace.

‘An entertaining portrait of eighteenth century aristocratic society, filled with juicy anecdotes, flamboyant characters and wild eccentricity.’ – Mail on Sunday

‘A highly intelligent, supremely enjoyable biographical study of the life and times of a celebrated rake and a brilliant picture of eighteenth-century aristocratic life in all its brittle artifice.’ – Robert McCrum, Observer

‘In Moore’s deft hands Lord Hervey becomes the peg on which to hang a far larger picture, and this excellent book has much of importance to say about the society, politics and attitudes of his day…Moore is an exciting historian with a keen eye for the eccentric and offbeat…an exemplary work.’ – New Statesman

‘A vivid survey of courtly life, with its elaborate feasts and intimate parlour games, polite formal rituals and spiteful personal squabbles.’ – The Times Literary Supplement

‘The court life, wit, clothes and sheer flamboyance of the era comes brilliantly alive.’ – Daily Telegraph

Lucy Moore was born in 1970 and educated in Britain and the United States before reading history at Edinburgh University. She is the editor of ‘Con Men and Cutpurses: Scenes from the Hogarthian Underworld’, and the author of the critically acclaimed ‘The Thieves’ Opera: The Remarkable Lives and Deaths of Jonathan Wild, Thief-Taker, and Jack Sheppard, House-Breaker’.

Lewis Basicity and Affinity Scales: Data and Measurement

by Christian Laurence, Jean-Francois Gal
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0470749571 | 476 pages | PDF | 5.24 MB

The Lewis concept of acids and bases is discussed in every general, organic and inorganic chemistry textbook. This is usually just a descriptive treatment, as it is not possible to devise a single numerical scale suitable for all occasions. However quantitative Lewis acid-base chemistry can be developed by compiling reaction-specific basicity scales which can be used in specific branches of chemistry and biochemistry.

The Men Who United the States [Audiobook]

Simon Winchester (Author, Narrator), "The Men Who United the States: America's Explorers, Inventors, Eccentrics and Mavericks, and the Creation of One Nation, Indivisible"
ISBN: 0062282816, ASIN: B00EIQ3018 | 2013 | MP3@64 kbps | ~13:33:00 | 377 MB
Simon Winchester, the acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of Atlantic and The Professor and the Madman, delivers his first book about America: a fascinating popular history that illuminates the men who toiled fearlessly to discover, connect, and bond the citizenry and geography of the U.S.A. from its beginnings.

How did America become “one nation, indivisible”? What unified a growing number of disparate states into the modern country we recognize today? To answer these questions, Winchester follows in the footsteps of America’s most essential explorers, thinkers, and innovators, such as Lewis and Clark and the leaders of the Great Surveys; the builders of the first transcontinental telegraph and the powerful civil engineer behind the Interstate Highway System. He treks vast swaths of territory, from Pittsburgh to Portland, Rochester to San Francisco, Seattle to Anchorage, introducing the fascinating people who played a pivotal role in creating today’s United States.

Throughout, he ponders whether the historic work of uniting the States has succeeded, and to what degree. Featuring 32 illustrations throughout the text, The Men Who United the States is a fresh look at the way in which the most powerful nation on earth came together.
