Summary Book Review Velociraptor :

Download or read book Velociraptor written by KidCaps and published by BookCaps Study Guides. This book was released on 2012 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: There were plenty of giant animals around during the Age of Dinosaurs. This epoch ended 65 million years ago when a huge meteor hit the Earth and ushered in our current Age of Mammals. The Age of Dinosaurs saw herds of Triceratops move through what would become the western United States, eating ferns, cycads, and other exotic Cretaceous plants. Tyrannosaurus rex, one of the most powerful, huge meat-eaters ever to live on Earth lived in the same place at the same time. The smaller dinosaurs could be just as strange and interesting, though. One of these is velociraptor, a small dinosaur that lived in Mongolia, at the eastern end of the Old World just across the Bering Strait from what's now Alaska. Velociraptor is famous because of the “Jurassic Park” books and movies, but the real velociraptor, even though it was a meat-eater, wasn't as big or dangerous as the ones that appear in the movies. In this book, you'll learn all about what made this massive giant great--from what they looked like and ate to where they lived and what they did all day.

Summary Book Review Stay Cool :

Download or read book Stay Cool written by Holger Koch-Nielsen and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2013-06-17 with total page 311 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In hot dry or warm humid climates, more than half of the urban peak load of energy consumption is used to satisfy air-conditioning demands alone. Since the urbanization rate in developing countries is extreme, the pressure placed on energy resources to satisfy the future requirements of the built environment will be great, unless new, more cost-effective measures can be introduced. Stay Cool is an essential guide for planning and design using active design principles and passive means to satisfy human comfort requirements specifically in these climate zones, based on examples of traditional and modern constructions. The book demonstrates how a design strategy for urban environments and individual buildings, incorporating naturally occurring resources and specific energy-efficient technologies, can create a location, form and structure that promote significant energy-savings. Such strategies can be applied to low cost housing, or indeed to any other buildings, in order to improve comfort with passive means and low energy budgets. Following an outline of climatic issues, characteristics and thermal comfort requirements, the book details the available techniques and technologies that can be used to shape both built and external environments, the building envelope, material selections and natural ventilation and cooling methods to satisfy both human requirements and the need for energy efficiency. It also includes an active design checklist and summary of available design checking tools, a rehabilitation guide for existing urban, building and external environments, and solar charts. Planners, architects, engineers, technicians and building designers will find Stay Cool an inspirational guide and an essential reference when working with planning and design of the built environment in hot dry and warm humid climate zones. It will also be of benefit to students, academics and researchers with an interest in sustainable and energy-efficient architecture techniques and practice.

This book was released on 2001 with total page 345 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: After a devastating dust storm that swept across Northern China in 2000, there was much interest in examining and analyzing experiences with dust storm mitigation, prevention, forecasting and control. What has emerged from the writings collected in this publication is that sand and dust storms are both a symptom and cause of desertification. They are often an early warning that things are going wrong. Combating these storms demands political, social, biological, economic, educational and engineering approaches as well as the physical effort that has dominated efforts in the past. This publication provides an analysis of the factors contributing to dust and sandstorms and also provides examples of how the menace can be brought under control through a series of measures, ranging from mechanical interventions and bio-remediation to policy change and legislative back up.

Book excerpt: Princess Elisa is a disappointment to her people. Although she bears the Godstone in her navel, a sign that she has been chosen for an act of heroism, they see her as lazy and useless and fat. On her sixteenth birthday, she is bartered off in royal marriage and shipped away to a kingdom in turmoil, where her much-older-and extremely beautiful-husband refuses to acknowledge her as his wife. Devastated, Elisa decides to take charge of her fate and learn what it means to bear the Godstone. As an invading army threatens to destroy her new home, and everyone at court manoeuvres to take advantage of the young princess, Elisa becomes convinced that, not only is her own life in danger, the whole world needs saving. But how can a young girl who has never ridden horseback, never played the game of politics, and never attained the love of a man save the world? Elisa can't be sure, but she must try to uncover the Godstone's secret history before the enemy steals the destiny nestled in her core.

This book was released on 2018-08-06 with total page 144 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Journey to the East is the story of a western traveler with a very limited Chinese vocabulary traveling in China. The author took small trips to large and mid-sized cities trying to learn enough about communications and culture to be able to travel freely in China. After tiring of organized tours, he adapted to trains, buses, taxis, and black cars which allowed him to see culture and sights beyond the reach of most western tourists. He found that adding hitchhiking to the mix of transportation modes allowed broader access to remote sites. The author tested his cultural and hitchhiking lessons learned in small trips by traveling cross country. He followed the same route that former NPR correspondent Rob Gifford traveled in ?China Road?, but from west to east, from Kazakhstan to China's east coast at Shanghai. The book reports on the travels and how the lessons learned succeeded or failed.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The conflict in Western Sahara has endured for nearly half a century, yet remains little known on the world stage. Drawing on multiple sources, this book presents an expansive history of both the conflict and the region, encompassing the history of the early Moroccan empires, the successive migrations of Arab nomads across the Sahara, the age of European exploration and colonialism, and the postcolonial period, when the conflict erupted out of a complex set of forces that include longstanding regional tensions, North Africa’s colonial legacy, the instability of post-independence Morocco, and diplomatic intrigues on the part of Western powers during the Cold War period. While it does not address the history of the conflict following the UN-mandated ceasefire of 1991, the book provides an overview for readers interested in both the conflict itself and the history of African nationalism in the post-war period.

Summary Book Review Wind Erosion in Niger :

Download or read book Wind Erosion in Niger written by Andreas A.C. Buerkert and published by Springer. This book was released on 1996-09-30 with total page 298 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Since 1985, the University of Hohenheim, Germany, in collaboration with the ICRISAT Sahelian Center, Niger, has pursued the development of improved agricultural systems for smallholder farmers in the fragile agricultural ecosystem of the West African Sahel. Wind erosion is one of the constraints that limits crop production in the region and was therefore a major focus of research. In this book, scientists from different disciplines work together to present a holistic view of this crucial problem and offer possible solutions to farmers in the region. This book is intended for researchers and institutions focusing on sustainable agriculture in the West African Sahel, as well as in other parts of the world where wind erosion affects agricultural production. A deliberate effort has been made to ensure that the book will be comprehensible to a broad readership, including applied researchers, extension specialists, development workers and students working in the field of soil degradation and desertification, as well as national and international policymakers. Those involved in the planning and execution of natural resource protection programs, especially in West Africa, will also gain insights from this book. The book is written in English; the abstracts and the summary chapter are also given in French.
