            This interdisciplinary book brings into dialogue research on how different fluids and bodies of water are mobilised as liquid ecologies in the arts in Latin America and the Caribbean. Examining the visual arts, including multimedia installations, performance, photography, and fil...m, the chapters place diverse fluids and systems of flow in art historical, ecocritical, and cultural analytical contexts. The book will be of interest to scholars of art history, cultural studies, environmental humanities, ecological humanities, blue humanities, ecocriticism, Latin American and Caribbean studies, and island studies.

            The extensively updated Groundwater Lowering in Construction: A Practical Guide to Dewatering, 3rd Edition offers practical advice on all phases of groundwater control systems, from planning and design, through installation and maintenance, and ultimately decommissioning. The exp...ertise provided in this book can help you improve working conditions, increase project viability, save time and reduce excavation costs. Designers and managers of construction and engineering projects are given the tools necessary to effectively control groundwater. The content is divided into three sections - Principles, Design and Construction. The Principles section explains the fundamentals of groundwater flow as it relates to civil engineering excavations. The Design section explores in extensive detail site investigation, permeability assessment methods and groundwater control strategies. Chapters in the Construction section describe dewatering and exclusion techniques, and examines the complete life cycle of a groundwater control scheme, including monitoring, maintenance and decommissioning. This section incorporates eleven case histories from the authors' casebook. The 3rd edition has been greatly revised and updated, and contains more than 200 new illustrations. The new content covers: Permeability of soils and rocks Groundwater problems for excavations in rock Groundwater control for tunnelling projects, such as shafts and cross passages Methods for assessing permeability Decommissioning of dewatering systems Optimisation of groundwater control schemes.

            While science and technology research, sources of funding, performances, incentives and motivations for technology innovation activities are reasonably well understood by academics and policy makers, the complex process by which scientific results are exploited and transformed in... new technologies through an innovation process is poorly documented and little studied. This book is dedicated to the complex activity of technology innovation with the aim to describe the process of generation of innovative ideas and their transformation into new technologies. It is based on the idea that technology evolves continuously with time, is changed by innovations, and is characterized by a dynamics constituted by technological processes occurring in organizational structures, but also during the use of technologies. Discusses technological processes for innovation Describes innovation within organizational structures Offers information on interface of science and economic factors with technology Suggests new statistical studies for innovation and new approaches for innovation policies Examines the contribution of technology dynamics for statistical studies and promotion of technology innovation This book is aimed at managers developing strategies for technology innovation, researchers interested in exploiting scientific results for innovative ideas and new technologies, and students studying economics of innovation. The book is of interest to private or public financiers of innovation and policy makers involved in economic growth strategy.

            Don't Let Technology Crack Your Nest Egg: Rethinking Personal Finance for the Digital Age (EPUB ebook)

            By Kamen, Ken; Burg, Dale

            When Ken Kamen launched his financial services career, technology had just begun to transform how we earn, spend, save, and invest money-along with every other aspect of our lives. Today, nearly four decades later, we have access to boundless possibilities with only a few keystro...kes. Technology empowers us by making countless tasks easier and speedier to accomplish, but it also compounds our human tendencies to act impulsively and emotionally, both of which are enemies of long-term financial security. Computers and search engines have lulled us into complacency, making it easy to find just-in-time answers to all our questions. The unexpected consequence has been a decline in the desire, and even the skills, to plan ahead. In Don't Let Technology Crack Your Nest Egg, Kamen presents startling facts that reveal how our reliance on technology poses growing economic dangers. For example, our addiction to our screens leads us to squander our most precious resource: time. Aspirational consumption has become such a budget-breaker that 60% of millennials say their #1 money-saving plan is to stop following social media. The incremental growth of cashless transactions makes us increasingly lax about tracking our spending. And although computers provide us access to a cornucopia of information, many people carelessly put their trust in "knowledge" from unreliable sources. In the real world, we guard our wallets and lock our doors to protect ourselves from unknown threats. But in the virtual world, we are cavalier about allowing motivated parties to invade our privacy and track our behavior, manipulate our buying decisions, and sway our opinions. We trust that simplistic, computer-generated solutions are comprehensive enough to provide carefully considered recommendations for our own particular needs. We allow our cyberself to wander the internet, compromising our identity and acting as an unsupervised agent on our behalf in our interactions and transactions with strangers. Kame

            By Sykes, Trevor

            In The Money Miners, Trevor Sykes writes of how and why mining shares rose and fell so dramatically at the end of 1969, and traces the scandals and collapse of many companies in the wildest stock market boom Australia has ever seen. Ultimately, this is a story of greed, a story o...f those who were more interested in mining money rather than minerals.

            Dark Sky Dreamings: an Inland Skywriters Anthology
             

            Dark Sky Dreamings: an Inland Skywriters Anthology (EPUB ebook)

            By Findlay, Merrill

            When you look up at a midnight sky, what do you see-mottled stars and a full Moon trying hard to compete with the street lamps for your attention? You might be situated in a city, or its sprawling suburbs, where the ever-present urban glow tends to keep your gaze horizontal, miss...ing out on the beckoning mysteries of the Universe. This Skywriters anthology will change all that. Through the eyes and creativity of people who write about south-eastern inland Australia, we'll redirect your vision upwards to a brighter Moon, the subtle presence of nearby planets, the cosmic spectacular of our Milky Way galaxy and those celestial bodies even further away. You'll find inspiring stories, poems and essays by a great diversity of Australians responding to what some have called the 'Inland Astro-Trail', which connects rural and remote communities with world-class astronomical observatories such as those at Parkes, Siding Springs and Narrabri. Some skystories are "literary", others intensely personal, but all are guaranteed to widen your horizons-upwards!
