            A 'Triple Bottom Line' Approach to Advanced Project Evaluation (PDF ebook – 1st edition)

            By Ding, Grace; Runeson, Goran

            The concept of 'the triple bottom line' has recently emerged to describe a new framework for development aimed at achieving economic and social balance while maintaining the long-term integrity of ecological systems. This requires measuring not only the economic viability of proj...ects, but also their impact on the environment and their contribution to society. We live in a world where most people are aware of the importance of our environment. The way in which this realisation came about has...

            Fundamentals of the Theory of Planning the Search for Space Objects (PDF ebook – 1st edition)

            By Veniaminov, Stanislav S.

            This book develops an original theory of the search for space objects, on which only crude orbital information is known. It uses a special principle to construct a plan for searching for such objects through optical or radar sensors. This principle maximally eliminates the loss o...f the sought-for object and provides an economical use of the resources used in the search. This book will be of great interest for astronomers-observers, space control services, space researchers, and students at tec...

            At age 27, with a degree in Liberal Arts from Georgetown University, and without any scientific background, Bob Iversen decided to become a marine biologist by studying fisheries at the University of Hawaii. The U.S Navy had positioned him to do this by sending him to Hawaii afte...r recalling him to active duty as a Petty Officer Third Class when the Korean War started in 1950. While at the University of Hawaii he was a good student but when offered a job as a biological technician with the U. S. Bureau of Commercial Fisheries he said yes and started going to sea on the Bureau's small oceanographic research vessels. He studied the tuna species the laboratory was studying, especially the hearing ability of Yellowfin Tuna. He trained one to swim through a maze to get a reward after hearing sounds. After several decades as a marine biologist, Bob was seconded to the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo as Fisheries Attache for three years. Bob's various jobs, at sea and on shore introduced him to many unusual events that have become the 28 episodes in this book, including several shark stories. He hopes that his career will be a spur to young men and women not to wait if they wish to become a marine biologist.

They were truly remarkable finds, a...nd extremely rare examples of a near-extinct WWI aircraft.

            A Man on the Moon: The Voyages of the Apollo Astronauts (EPUB ebook)

            By Chaikin, Andrew

            'IMPRESSIVE AND ILLUMINATING' TOM HANKS This is the definitive account of the heroic Apollo programme. When astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took their 'giant leap for mankind' across a ghostly lunar landscape, they were watched by some 600 million people on Earth 240,00...0 miles away.Drawing on hundreds of hours of in-depth interviews with the astronauts and mission personnel, this is the story of the twentieth century's greatest human achievement, minute-by-minute, through the eyes of those who were there.From the tragedy of the fire in Apollo 1 during a simulated launch, Apollo 8's bold pioneering flight around the moon, through to the euphoria of the first moonwalk, and to the discoveries made by the first scientist on the moon aboard Apollo 17, this book covers it all. 'An extraordinary book . . . Space, with its limitless boundaries, has the power to inspire, to change lives, to make the impossible happen. Chaikin's superb book demonstrates how' Sunday Times 'A superb account . . . Apollo may be the only achievement by which our age is remembered a thousand years from now' Arthur C. Clarke 'The authoritative masterpiece' Los Angeles Times
