Discipline Of Architecture by Andrzej Piotrowski
English | 2000 | ISBN: 0816636648 | 344 Pages | PDF | 3 MB
Architecture A polemical look at how architectural knowledge is produced, disseminated, and received.

Discipline Of Architecture
In the vast literature on architectural theory and practice, the ways in which architectural knowledge is actually taught, debated, and understood are too often ignored. The essays collected in this groundbreaking volume address the current state of architecture as an academic and professional discipline. The issues considered range from the form and content of architectural education to the architect's social and environmental obligations and the emergence of a new generation of architects. Often critical of the current paradigm, these essays offer a provocative challenge to accepted assumptions about the production, dissemination, and reception of architectural knowledge.

White Plague (A Joe Rush Novel, Book 1) by James Abel
2015 | Duration: 11 hours and 17 mins | ISBN: 1611764068 | MP3 128 kbps, 2 channels | 620 MB
by James Abel (Author), Ray Porter (Narrator)

White Plague (A Joe Rush Novel, Book 1)
In the frozen waters of the Arctic, Marine bioterror expert Joe Rush races to save a submarine crew from a lethal threat
"The pleas for help stopped coming just after five in the morning, Washington time. The Pentagon staffers cleared for handling sensitive messages sat in horror for a moment and then tried other ways to reach the victims. Nothing worked so they called the Director, who phoned me."
In the remote, frozen waters of the Arctic Ocean, the high-powered and technically advanced submarine U.S.S. Montana is in peril. Adrift and in flames, the boat-and the entire crew-could be lost. The only team close enough to get to them in time is led by Marine doctor and bio-terror expert Joe Rush.
With only thirty-six hours before the surviving crew perish, Joe and his team must race to rescue the Montana and ensure that the boat doesn't fall into enemy hands. Because a fast-approaching foreign submarine is already en route, and tensions may explode.
But that's the least of their troubles. For the surviving sailors are not alone on the sub. Something is trapped with them. Something deadly lethal. Something that plagued mankind long ago, when it devastated the entire world. And the crew of the Montana has unknowingly set it free. Now, Joe and his team must not only find a way to save the Montana and her crew, but stop a lethal horror of apocalyptic consequence from being unleashed on all humanity.

Crony Capitalism in America: 2008-2012

Crony Capitalism in America: 2008-2012
Language: English | PDF | ISBN-10: 0988726726 | 2013 | 399 pages | 2 MB
When private interests need a political favor, they know whom to call. When politicians need money, they also know whom to call. The people involved try to keep most of it concealed behind closed doors.

Crony Capitalism in America: 2008-2012
We see it everywhere:
* shady zoning regulations in a small town;
* taxpayer money diverted into political campaigns;
* deals that enrich the few at the expense of the many;
* billion-dollar bailouts;
* trillions of newly printed dollars flowing from government to Wall Street at giveaway interest rates;
* brand-name economists hired to defend the indefensible with a smokescreen of economic theory.

When private interests need a political favor, they know whom to call. When politicians need money, they also know whom to call. The people involved try to keep most of it concealed behind closed doors.

This is the system that prevails in Russia after the fall of Communism. But increasingly it is America's system as well.

Many people regard Wall Street as the epicenter of American capitalism. In reality it is the epicenter of American crony capitalism. Where Wall Street stops and Washington begins is impossible to say. This situation was not caused, as many suppose, by the Crash of 2008. Rather the Crash was caused by the longstanding Wall Street-Washington partnership. But the problem extends far beyond Wall Street to every corner of America.

If we are going to do anything about our present economic problems, and also give the poor a chance at a better life, we will need to eliminate crony capitalism.

Although full of hair-raising stories, this book is also about solutions. It tells us in clear and simple terms what is wrong and what needs to be done about it.

Tutorials In Introductory Physics and Homework Package

FREEDownload : Tutorials In Introductory Physics and Homework Package

Lillian C. McDermott, Peter S. Shaffer, "Tutorials In Introductory Physics and Homework Package"
2001 | ISBN-10: 0130970697, 0130653640, 0130662453 (hb) | 445 pages | PDF | 7 MB

Tutorials In Introductory Physics and Homework Package
Tutorials in Introductory Physics is based on extensive teaching experience and more than twenty years of research in which the Physics Education Group has sought to identify and address common difficulties that students encounter in studying physics. Development of the tutorials was motivated by the conviction that in order to develop a functional understanding of the material students need more assistance than they can obtain through listening to lectures, reading the textbook, and solving standard quantitative problems. Tutorials in Introductory Physics is intended to supplement these traditional forms of instruction by providing a structure that promotes the active mental engagement of students in the process of learning physics. The materials are equally appropriate for algebra-based and calculus-based courses. Working together in small collaborative groups, students help one another go through the steps in reasoning necessary for the construction and application of important concepts and principles. The tutorials have been rigorously class-tested at the University of Washington, at other research universities, and at two-year and four-year colleges.

This First Edition of Tutorials in Introductory Physics builds upon the Preliminary Edition. In addition to new and revised tutorials on mechanics, electricity and magnetism, and waves and optics, the First Edition also includes tutorials on selected topics from hydrostatics, thermodynamics, and modern physics. In all cases,, a complete tutorial sequence consists of a pretest, worksheet, homework assignment, and examination questions that serve as cost-tests. The student texts consist of the tutorial worksheets and homework assignments. Pretests are included in the Instructors Guides: For these instructional materials to be most effective, it is important that course examinations include qualitative questions that emphasize the concepts and reasoning skills developed in the tutorials.

Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest: Timber Press Field Guide by Joe Ammirati
The Pacific Northwest is one of the best places to find mushrooms – they are both abundant and spectacularly diverse. Yet until now, there has been no mushroom guide that focuses on the region. This compact, beautifully illustrated guide presents descriptions and photographs of 460 of the region's most conspicuous, distinctive, and ecologically important mushrooms.

The geographic range covered by the book includes Oregon, Washington, southern British Columbia, Idaho, and westernmost Montana, with an emphasis on the heart of mushroom country: the low- to mid-elevation forest habitats of western Oregon and Washington. In addition to profiles on individual species, Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest also includes a general discussion and definition of fungi; information on where to find mushrooms and guidelines on collecting them; an overview of fungus ecology; and a discussion on mushroom poisoning and how to avoid it.

Streetcars of America by Brian Solomon, John Gruber
2014 | ISBN: 0747813256 | English | 64 pages | EPUB | 22 MB

Streetcars of America
The handsome multi-colored streetcar is a nostalgic icon of the some of the most romantic and heritage-rich locales in America, including San Francisco, New Orleans and Chicago, immortalized on stage and screen in classics including Meet Me In St. Louis and A Streetcar Named Desire. Streetcars of America chronicles these vehicles from the earliest animal-drawn carriages to the height of their popularity in the 1920s, when there were more than 1,200 street railways, to the turning of the tide in the mid-twentieth century when congestion and attacks from the automobile industry eventually removed streetcars from most urban landscapes. It also looks at the recent efforts to revive vintage streetcars as hip and environmentally-friendly daily commuter service, as well as tourist attractions, in more than thirty cities including Memphis and Washington, D.C.
