Sette brevi lezioni di fisica by Carlo Rovelli

By Carlo Rovelli

Ci sono frontiere della conoscenza dove brucia il nostro desiderio di sapere: sono nelle profondità più minute del tessuto dello spazio, nelle origini del cosmo, nella natura del pace, nella destinazione dei buchi neri. Qui, a contatto con l’oceano di quanto non sappiamo, bellezza e mistero ci lasciano senza fiato. Queste ‘lezioni’ delineano una rapida panoramica della rivoluzione avvenuta nella fisica del XX secolo e della ricerca in corso, discorrendo, con ammirevole trasparenza, della teoria della relatività generale di Einstein, della meccanica quantistica, dell’architettura del cosmo, delle particelle elementari, della gravità quantistica, della probabilità e del calore dei buchi neri, della natura del pace e di altro ancora.

Zen-Brain Reflections

This sequel to the generally learn Zen and the mind keeps James Austin’s explorations into the main interrelationships among Zen Buddhism and mind learn. In Zen-Brain Reflections, Austin, a scientific neurologist, researcher, and Zen practitioner, examines the evolving mental procedures and mind adjustments linked to the trail of long-range meditative education.

In Search of Schrödinger's Cat: Quantum Physics and Reality

Quantum thought is so stunning that Einstein couldn't deliver himself to just accept it. it's so vital that it presents the basic underpinning of all glossy sciences. with out it, we'd don't have any nuclear energy or nuclear guns, no television, no pcs, no technological know-how of molecular biology, no knowing of DNA, no genetic engineering.

Science 292:686–693 Chapter 2 Changing Views of the Galapagos Diego Quiroga Introduction Social constructs emerge in specific economic and sociopolitical contexts and are associated with particular groups with concrete interests and histories and under particular regimes (Proctor 1998). As Escobar (1994) has indicated, many of the constructs and categories used to understand the world have been produced in developed countries and are being used and exported to the rest of the world.

Habitat degradation and loss is probably the second most important threat for terrestrial biodiversity in the Galapagos and the most likely direct cause of recent extinctions among some native endemic invertebrates and vertebrates (especially land birds). The humid zones of the four major islands (which also happen to be the islands inhabited by humans) are probably the most important habitats for most exclusive terrestrial Galapagos organisms, both vertebrates and invertebrates. The vegetation zone that remained largely unaltered up to the 1970s has now almost been completely replaced by introduced pastures and other invasive exotic plant species, especially on Santa Cruz and San Cristobal and to a lesser extent on Isabela and Floreana where large areas have been invaded also.

It brought over 260 preserved specimens of giant tortoises as well as numerous specimens of reptiles, birds, mammals, insects, plants, land snails, and fossils (James 2010). These efforts to collect reflect the idea, common at the time, that collecting was the only way of safely preserving and studying the 28 D. Quiroga specimens (James 2010). Huge collections, such as those of the CAS, are in part responsible for the fame of the islands as Darwin’s living outdoor laboratory of evolution (James 2010).
