Category: Asperger's syndrome
"This book is full of tips, techniques and stories that will give you an inside look at what it means to have Asperger's. You will come away inspired and with a new understanding of how to communicate more effectively with those you love! In this book you'll learn the truth about Asperger's Syndrome and why it's one of the least understood disorders today. The average person has never even heard of this syndrome. So it probably comes as no surprise that people with Asperger's are often alienated, as they tend to communicate in a way that others can't easily relate to. Some with Asperger's will usually find it difficult to understand normal social cues. They can feel very alone, yet have no clue as to how to express the feelings inside them. They can feel constantly rejected and harassed by those around them and even the ones who love them. You must truly understand this syndrome in order to have a good relationship with a person that has this disorder ... If you know someone with Asperger's your goal should be to learn as much as you can about this disorder. You need to understand why people with this syndrome think and live the way they do. I created this book so you can communicate and learn coping techniques that will create better lives for you and your loved one."--Back cover.

Fighter Pilots and Air Combat, from the Red Baron to the F-16
Author: Dan Hampton
Publisher: Harper Collins
NATIONAL BESTSELLER • The definitive history of combat aviation and fighter aircraft, from World War I to present INCLUDES 32 PAGES OF PHOTOGRAPHS AND 12 MAPS Lords of the Sky is the “dramatic, fast-paced, and definitive" (Michael Korda) history of fighter pilots and aircraft and their extraordinary influence on modern warfare, masterfully written by "one of the most decorated pilots in Air Force history” (New York Post). A twenty-year USAF veteran who flew more than 150 combat missions and received multiple Distinguished Flying Crosses, Lt. Colonel Dan Hampton draws on his singular firsthand knowledge, as well as groundbreaking research in aviation archives and rare personal interviews with little-known heroes, including veterans of World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. Hampton (the New York Times bestselling author of Viper Pilot) reveals the stories behind history's most iconic aircraft and the aviators who piloted them: from the Sopwith Camel and Fokker Triplane to the Mitsubishi Zero, Supermarine Spitfire, German Bf 109, P-51 Mustang, Grumman Hellcat, F-4 Phantom, F-105 Thunderchief, F-16 Falcon, F/A-18 Super Hornet, and beyond. In a seamless, sweeping narrative, Lords of the Sky is an extraordinary account of the most famous fighter planes and the brave and daring heroes who made them legend.
Greenhouse Simulations from the Model Evaluation Consortium for Climate Assessment
Author: A. Henderson-Sellers,Ann-Maree Hansen
Publisher: Springer Verlag
Concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere have been increasing since the Industrial Revolution, prompting concern that these increases could result in global and regional climate change. The impacts of this enhanced greenhouse effect are not yet fully understood and may depend on both the degree and the speed of climate change. Impact and policy assessments are demanding more information from climate modellers and specific case studies use the most up-to-date, completely validated model results available. But one model `snapshot' will not represent the whole scene, nor the full complexity and uncertainty of future climate prediction. The Climate Change Atlas puts such individual model scenarios into context. The Climate Change Atlas is a means of visually representing, comparing and communicating climate variables as derived from global climate models: temperature, precipitation, snow and ice. The displays are readily comprehensible to a broad community, motivated by the need to provide and utilise climate change assessments and to understand their reliability in the development of policy initiatives. A guide to both scientist and policy maker to the quantification, consensus and (un)certainty derivable from these models.

Maupertuis and the Sciences in the Enlightenment
Author: Mary Terrall
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
Self-styled adventurer, literary wit, philosopher, and statesman of science, Pierre-Louis Moreau de Maupertuis (1698-1759) stood at the center of Enlightenment science and culture. Offering an elegant and accessible portrait of this remarkable man, Mary Terrall uses the story of Maupertuis's life, self-fashioning, and scientific works to explore what it meant to do science and to be a man of science in eighteenth-century Europe. Beginning his scientific career as a mathematician in Paris, Maupertuis entered the public eye with a much-discussed expedition to Lapland, which confirmed Newton's calculation that the earth was flattened at the poles. He also made significant, and often intentionally controversial, contributions to physics, life science, navigation, astronomy, and metaphysics. Called to Berlin by Frederick the Great, Maupertuis moved to Prussia to preside over the Academy of Sciences there. Equally at home in salons, cafés, scientific academies, and royal courts, Maupertuis used his social connections and his printed works to enhance a carefully constructed reputation as both a man of letters and a man of science. His social and institutional affiliations, in turn, affected how Maupertuis formulated his ideas, how he presented them to his contemporaries, and the reactions they provoked. Terrall not only illuminates the life and work of a colorful and important Enlightenment figure, but also uses his story to delve into many wider issues, including the development of scientific institutions, the impact of print culture on science, and the interactions of science and government. Smart and highly readable, Maupertuis will appeal to anyone interested in eighteenth-century science and culture. “Terrall’s work is scholarship in the best sense. Her explanations of arcane 18th-century French physics, mathematics, astronomy, and biology are among the most lucid available in any language.”—Virginia Dawson, American Historical Review Winner of the 2003 Pfizer Award from the History of Science Society

Skydiving, Parachute Fall, Flying Fragments
Author: George Klimi
Publisher: Xlibris Corporation
Exterior Ballistics with Applications – Skydiving, Parachute Fall, Flying Fragments presents a modern approach to introduce the basics of exterior ballistics and its methods from the simple ideal model of projectile motion to the automatic solution of the differential equations of projectile flight using PC programs. The book uses different approaches to solve the differential equations of projectile motion — among them the Siacci method and the numerical methods. The results obtained through the integration of differential equations of projectile flight are mostly analytical formulas that describe the projectile trajectory and make the exterior ballistics a comprehensible science. The Differential Equations of Projectile Flight are also integrated numerically using some original PC programs that can be easily modified to be used in similar scenarios or other new ones and give the reader the possibility to solve a great variety of Exterior Ballistics problem. Exterior Ballistics with Applications can be considered as an interdisciplinary applied mathematics and physics manuscript for the vast mathematics and physics models and techniques employed. It is a great source for applications in physics, calculus, differential equations, numerical methods, and PC programming as well. The book is illustrated with about 140 solved examples related to different artillery and infantry firearms that demonstrate the use of formulas and the solution methods of ballistics to find the elements of projectile trajectories. Exterior Ballistics with Applications includes as well two interesting topics that can be considered as applications of exterior ballistics: 1. Skydiving and parachute falling related with the trajectory of a parachutist launched from a horizontally flying airplane with un-deployed parachute, in different meteorological conditions, and in presence of air resistance and wind. 2. The ballistics of projectile fragments that is an important element of Terminal Ballistics necessary to study the effectiveness of fragmentation ammunitions on the personnel and objects, and other problems related with the construction of fragmentation ammunitions, or with Forensic Sciences. Exterior Ballistics with Applications is comprehensive and serves as reference material to provide answers to problems encountered in the practice of motion of unguided projectiles, skydiving and flying fragments of antipersonnel ammunitions.
How Famous People Make Money

Publisher: Open Road Media
Category: Business & Economics
From $10,000 tweets to making money in the afterlife, a recovering gossip columnist explores the business lessons that power the Hollywood Industrial Complex Why do celebrities get paid so much more than regular people to do a job that seems to afford them the same amount of leisure time as most retirees? What do Bush-era economics have to do with the rise of Kim Kardashian? How do the laws of supply and demand explain why the stars of Teen Mom are on the cover of Us Weekly? And how was the sale of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s baby pictures a little like a street drug deal? After a decade spent toiling as an entertainment journalist and gossip columnist, Jo Piazza asks the hard questions about the business behind celebrity. Make no mistake: Celebrity is an industry. Never in the course of human history has the market for celebrities been as saturated as it is today. Nearly every day most Americans will consume something a celebrity is selling—a fragrance, a sneaker, a song, a movie, a show, a tweet, or a photo in a magazine. With the benefits of Piazza’s unique access to the celebrity market, Celebrity, Inc. explains in detail what generates cash for the industry and what drains value faster than a starlet downs champagne—in twelve fascinating case studies that tackle celebrities the way industry analysts would dissect any consumer brand.
