Transcendence: The Disinformation Encyclopedia of by R. U. Sirius, Jay Cornell

By R. U. Sirius, Jay Cornell

Transhumanism is a world flow that advocates using technology and know-how to beat the "natural" boundaries skilled via humanity, via such advancements as:

the Singularity—the production of computer intelligences that exceed the capacities of our organic brains
the skill to copy person minds and placed them into solid-state our bodies or digital environments
individual keep watch over over psychological and emotional states for reinforcing functionalities and/or ecstasies
Some of this is often taking place now. a few it's nonetheless within the minds of dreamers.

In approximately 90 A-Z entries, Transcendence presents a multilayered examine the accelerating advances in man made intelligence, cognitive technological know-how, genomics, details expertise, nanotechnology, neuroscience, house exploration, artificial biology, robotics, and digital worlds which are making transhumanism a fact. Entries diversity from Cloning and Cyborg Feminism to dressmaker infants and Memory-Editing medicinal drugs. moreover, the booklet notes old predecessors and personalities, either in mythology and history—ranging from Timothy Leary to Michael Jackson to Ray Kurzweil. It additionally introduces the tradition round Transhumanism, protecting the entire geeky obsessions of the Transhumanist circulate.

Principles and Practice of Palliative Care and Supportive by Ann M. Berger, John L. Shuster, Jamie H. Von Roenn

By Ann M. Berger, John L. Shuster, Jamie H. Von Roenn

The first really interdisciplinary e-book on supportive oncology and palliative care returns with a brand new version that serves as a realistic consultant to the administration of the myriad signs and quality-of-life concerns that happen in sufferers with cancer—including newly clinically determined sufferers, sufferers present process therapy, melanoma survivors, and sufferers whose disorder is not any longer curable. The interdisciplinary workforce of members contains top specialists in hospice care and palliative drugs, oncology, nursing, neurology, psychiatry, anesthesiology, and pharmacology.

This thoroughly revised variation good points new chapters on caregiver rigidity, hepatic failure, pulmonary failure, study matters in palliative care, and starting a palliative care software. content material has been aligned with the wishes of today's palliative care fellowship courses and contains extra tables, algorithms, and circulate charts.

Dipole Moments, Quadrupole Coupling Constants, Hindered by W. Hüttner (eds.)

By W. Hüttner (eds.)

Volume II/24 offers the spectroscopic information on diamagnetic and paramagnetic molecules in addition to on molecular ions and radicals brand new contemplating the courses as much as and in part together with 1997. The spectroscopic details amassed during this quantity has been received mostly from gasoline section microwave measurements. additionally, gasoline section information were incorporated derived from equipment regarding microwave spectroscopy via using a coherent radiation resource. those are molecular beam suggestions, radio frequency spectroscopy, electron resonance spectroscopy, laser spectroscopy, double resonance and saturation recommendations. another equipment are thought of if the accuracy of the derived molecular parameters is similar to that of microwave spectroscopy because of a very good records within the research of information, and no microwave info can be found. Examples will be Fourier infrared spectroscopy or laser precipitated fluorescence.

Optimizing Liner Shipping Fleet Repositioning Plans by Kevin Tierney

By Kevin Tierney

This monograph addresses numerous serious difficulties to the operations of transport traces and ports, and offers algorithms and mathematical types to be used via delivery strains and port experts for determination help. this kind of difficulties is the repositioning of box ships in a liner delivery community so that it will regulate the community to seasonal shifts well-known or alterations on the earth economic system. we offer the 1st challenge description and mathematical version of repositioning and outline the lining delivery fleet repositioning challenge (LSFRP). The LSFRP is characterised via chains of interacting actions with a multi-commodity move over paths outlined by means of the actions selected. We first version the matter with no shipment flows with a number of famous optimization innovations, in addition to utilizing a singular technique referred to as linear temporal optimization making plans that mixes linear programming with partial-order making plans in a branch-and-bound framework. We then version the LSFRP with shipment flows, utilizing numerous diversified mathematical types in addition to heuristic methods. We overview our innovations on a real-world dataset that features a situation from our commercial collaborator. We exhibit that our ways scale to the scale of difficulties confronted via undefined, and also are capable of increase the revenue at the reference state of affairs via over US$14 million.

The Atmospheric Effects of Stratospheric Aircraft Project: by National Research Council, Division on Earth and Life

By National Research Council, Division on Earth and Life Studies, Environment and Resources Commission on Geosciences, Panel on Atmospheric Effects of Aviation

Panel on Atmospheric results of Aviation, atmosphere and assets fee on Geosciences, department in the world and lifestyles stories, nationwide study Council

Scientists and policy-makers alike are involved that operation of a fleet of high-speed civil shipping (HSCT) airplane may possibly considerably have an effect on the worldwide surroundings. HSCT emissions could have an instantaneous impact at the chemistry of the ambience, resulting in alterations within the distribution of ozone; they could even have oblique results on ozone and on worldwide weather via coupling with radiative and dynamical techniques within the surroundings. An overview of the atmospheric impression of a fleet of HSCTs therefore calls for not just an knowing of the chemistry of the average stratosphere and its attainable perturbations through HSCT emissions, but additionally an realizing of the pathways for delivery of HSCT emissions in the surroundings, and the ensuing temporal and spatial distribution of HSCT emissions.

The result of NASA's Atmospheric results of Stratospheric plane (AESA) undertaking have been summarized in a 1995 NASA overview. the current file seems at that precis and at newer paintings to judge the nation of the technological know-how. AESA has made strong development some time past few years. satellite tv for pc and plane observations have elucidated vital points of large-scale shipping approaches. box campaigns have supplied a far better photograph of the relative value, less than 20 km altitude, of the most important catalytic cycles for ozone destruction. cautious intercomparisons of evaluation versions have ended in aid of a few of the variations one of the types. besides the fact that, a few uncertainties and inconsistencies nonetheless stay.
