biology, study of living things and their vital processes. The field deals with all the physicochemical aspects of life. As a result of the modern tendency to unify scientific knowledge and investigation, however, there has been an overlapping of the field of biology with other scientific disciplines. Modern principles of other sciences—chemistry and physics, for example—are integrated with those of biology in such areas as biochemistry and biophysics.

What really happened on 9/11 What can the evidence tell us Who is covering up the evidence, and why are they covering it up This book attempts to give some answers to these questions and has been written by someone who has become deeply involved in research into what happened on 9/11. A study of the available evidence will challenge you and much of what you assumed to be true. "Now we are discovering that there is a highly-sophisticated black-ops weaponization of free energy technology and it was responsible for the bizarre, low-temperature pulverization of the Twin Towers. Dr. Judy Wood has pieced together the physical evidence and Andrew Johnson has highlighted who is working to silence or smear whom, as the powers that be rush to impede or at least contain the dissemination of these startling findings." - Conrado Salas Cano, M.S. in Physics

Publisher: Lulu.com
Seller: Lulu Enterprises, Inc.

There is no human work in existence that contains statements as far beyond the level of knowledge of its time as the Qur’an. Scientific opinions comparable to those in the Qur’an are the result of modern knowledge. In the commentaries to translations of the Qur’an that have appeared in European languages, I have only been able to find scattered and vague references to them. Nor do commentators writing in Arabic provide a complete study of the aspects of the Qur’an that deal with scientific matters. This is why the idea of a comprehensive study of the problem appealed to me. In addition to this, a comparative study of similar data contained in the Bible (Old Testament and Gospels) seemed desirable. Thus, a research project was developed from the comparison of certain passages in the Holy Scriptures of each monotheistic religion with modern scientific knowledge. The project resulted in the publication of a book entitled, The Bible, the Qur'an and Science. The first French edition appeared in May 1976.

As the global population grows and incomes in poor countries rise, so too, will the demand for food, placing additional pressure on sustainable food production. Climate change adds a further challenge, as changes in temperature and precipitation threaten agricultural productivity and the capacity to feed the world’s population. This study assesses how serious the danger to food security might be and suggests some steps policymakers can take to remedy the situation. Using various modeling techniques, the authors project 15 different future scenarios for food security through 2050. Each scenario involves an alternative combination of potential population and income growth and climate change. The authors also examine the specific test case of a hypothetical extended drought in South Asia, to demonstrate the possible effects of increased climate variability on a particular world region. They conclude that the negative effects of climate change on food security can be counteracted by broad-based economic growth—particularly improved agricultural productivity—and robust international trade in agricultural products to offset regional shortages. In pursuit of these goals, policymakers should increase public investment in land, water, and nutrient use and maintain relatively free international trade. This inquiry into the future of food security should be of use to policymakers and others concerned with the impact of climate change on international development.

This eBook includes video and interactive graphic materials. (CNN) -- Deep down on the bottom of the Baltic Sea, Swedish treasure hunters think they have made the find of a lifetime. The problem is, they're not exactly sure what it is they've uncovered. Out searching for shipwrecks at a secret location between Sweden and Finland, the deep-sea salvage company Ocean Explorer captured an incredible image more than 80 meters below the water's surface. At first glance, team leader and commercial diver Peter Lindberg joked that his crew had just discovered an unidentified flying object, or UFO.

Should we go vegan? The unambiguous conclusion of this short book is "yes". This conclusion is reached through a broad examination of the consequences of our not being vegan – both in relation to human health, environmental pollution, the risk of the spread of diseases, and in relation to the beings we exploit and kill. On all these levels the conclusion is clear: We have no good reason to not go vegan, while we have many good reasons to stop our practice of raising, killing and eating non-human animals and things from them. The bottom line: We have a strong ethical obligation to go vegan. "Magnus Vinding makes a compelling case for ending the abuse of other sentient beings. What will we tell our grandchildren? ("But I liked the taste?")" — David Pearce, founder of BLTC Research and co-founder of Humanity+, author of The Hedonistic Imperative .  "An excellent concise statement of the arguments for going vegan." — Peter Singer, Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, author of The Life You Can Save: Acting Now to End World Poverty  and Animal Liberation .

Discover the fundamental nature of matter; everything is made of atoms. The atomic theory is brought to life in "Atoms in Motion" -- this book is a guide to fully interactive atomistic simulation that uses sophisticated Molecular Dynamics (MD) algorithms to perform computational chemistry calculations right on your iPad. Such computations reveal the motions of atoms as they attract, repel, and collide with one another. Fun for all ages -- in this simulation you control the atoms! With the tap of the finger you can add, delete, or highlight atoms within the simulation. With a gentle touch you can move, place, or throw atoms. With the swipe of a finger you can control the temperature and explore the states-of-matter (solids, liquids, and gases). Discover the physics behind the ideal gas laws, and perform your own experiments by changing the volume, the number of atoms in the simulation, or the temperature. This Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulation includes realistic interatomic potentials of four noble gas elements: Helium, Neon, Argon, and Krypton (the van der Waals forces are computed using a Lennard-Jones 6-12 potential). The MD simulation continuously computes the pressure, and dynamically plots the pressure versus temperature, volume, or the number of atoms. Users can vary the temperature from near absolute zero to over 500K, and add up to 1,000 atoms to the simulation. Enjoy the Atoms!

FREEDOM has its own very informative website: visit www.humancondition.com The fastest growing realization everywhere is that humanity can't go on the way it is going. Indeed, the great fear is we're entering endgame where we appear to have lost the race between self-destruction and self-discovery―the race to find the psychologically relieving understanding of our 'good and evil'-afflicted human condition. Well, astonishing as it is, this book by biologist Jeremy Griffith presents the 11th hour breakthrough biological explanation of the human condition necessary for the psychological rehabilitation and transformation of our species! The culmination of 40 years of studying and writing about our species' psychosis, FREEDOM delivers nothing less than the holy grail of insight we have needed to free ourselves from the human condition. It is, in short, as Professor Harry Prosen, a former president of the Canadian Psychiatric Association, asserts in his Introduction, 'The book that saves the world' . Griffith has been able to venture right to the bottom of the dark depths of what it is to be human and return with the fully accountable, true explanation of our seemingly imperfect lives. At long last we have the redeeming and thus transforming understanding of human behaviour! And with that explanation found all the other great outstanding scientific mysteries about our existence are now also able to be truthfully explained―of the meaning of our existence, of the origin of our unconditionally selfless moral instincts, and of why we humans became conscious when other animals haven't. Yes, the full story of life on Earth can finally be told―and all of these incredible breakthroughs and insights are presented here in this 'greatest of all books'.

A few years ago the world was suddenly astounded by hearing of an experiment of a most novel and daring nature, altogether unprecedented in the annals of science. In accordance with the Cambridge men's note, the cannon intended to discharge the projectile was to be planted in some country not further than 28° north or south from the equator, so that it might be aimed vertically at the Moon in the zenith. The bullet was to be animated with an initial velocity of 12,000 yards to the second. It was to be fired off on the night of December 1st, at thirteen minutes and twenty seconds before eleven o'clock, precisely. Four days afterwards it was to hit the Moon, at the very moment that she reached her perigee, that is to say, her nearest point to the Earth, about 228,000 miles distant. The leading members of the Club, namely President Barbican, Secretary Marston, Major Elphinstone and General Morgan, forming the executive committee, held several meetings to discuss the shape and material of the bullet, the nature and position of the cannon, and the quantity and quality of the powder. These questions settled, Barbican, aided by Murphy, the Chief Engineer of the Cold Spring Iron Works, selected a spot in Florida, near the 27th degree north latitude, called Stony Hill, where after the performance of many wonderful feats in mining engineering, the Columbiad was successfully cast. Things had reached this state when an incident occurred which excited the general interest a hundred fold.

For the study of the laws of life of human societies, there exists but one indubitable method, the positive, experimental, critical method. Only sociology, founded on biology, founded on all the positive sciences, can give us the laws of humanity. Humanity, or human communities, are the organisms already prepared, or still in process of formation, and which are subservient to all the laws of the evolution of organisms.

Seller: Smashwords, Inc.

The theory of evolution has been around for some 150 years, and has deeply influenced people's views of the world. The theory maintains that life came about by chance, by itself, and through natural conditions. However, evolution is not supported by any scientific evidence. It is a dogma that materialist scientists and philosophers are trying to impose on society under a scientific mask. The main foundations of this dogma, which has been disproved by modern science in many fields, are propaganda techniques consisting of cheating, forgery, contradiction, and sleight of hand. This book is a guide for the layman. It considers the scientific invalidity of the theory of evolution in 20 commonly asked questions. The answers to these questions are based on the most recent scientific discoveries, and clearly reveal that the theory of evolution is nothing but a superstition.

This is the Second Edition of Transform Your Life And Save The World following significant additions in June 2019. This book is supported by a very informative website at www.humancondition.com The world is in crisis!  What is the solution? Ultimately, we have to find the redeeming, and thus transforming, understanding of our psychologically troubled human condition. And it is precisely that dreamed-of insight, and its now desperately needed transformation of our lives, that Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith presents in this book.  Titled Transform Your Life And Save The World - Through The Dreamed Of Arrival Of The Rehabilitating Biological Explanation Of The Human Condition , this book is a very short but powerful condensation of Griffith’s definitive treatise of the human condition that is presented in his book FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition . The genesis of Transform Your Life And Save The World lay in Griffith’s address at the June 2016 launch of FREEDOM at the Royal Geographical Society in London. Commencing with very brief extracts from Tim Macartney-Snape’s Introduction at the launch, and Sir Bob Geldof’s keynote address, it goes on to summarise FREEDOM’s content in 3 powerful chapters: ‘The Dishonest Biology’, ‘The Truthful Biology’, and ‘The Resulting Transformation Of The Human Race’. In fact, in just 82 pages of sensational world-shaking but at the same time spectacular world-saving TRUTH about human behaviour, Griffith delivers a presentation that is so profoundly liberating, relieving and transforming of your life that this little book may be all you need to read! As Professor Harry Prosen, a former President of the Canadian Psychiatric Association, has said, “I have no doubt this biological explanation of the human condition is the holy grail of insight we have sought for the psychological rehabilitation of the human race.”

Of the thousands of major operations every day, almost all of them require you to be reliably made unconscious for a period of time, and then to be awoken at the end. So, this book is an attempt to elucidate what we know about general anaesthetics and what we don’t.  Our protagonist is Harry, a fit young adult who has just been diagnosed with appendicitis.

In compiling the Introductions, the additional notes, and footnotes, I have endeavoured to supply the reader with a compendious manual of reference. With the subject-matter of large portions of the three distinct poems which make up the five hundred stanzas of Childe Harold's Pilgrimage every one is more or less [vii]familiar, but details and particulars are out of the immediate reach of even the most cultivated readers. The poem may be dealt with in two ways. It may be regarded as a repertory or treasury of brilliant passages for selection and quotation; or it may be read continuously, and with some attention to the style and message of the author. It is in the belief that Childe Harold should be read continuously, and that it gains by the closest study, reassuming its original freshness and splendour, that the text as well as Byron's own notes have been somewhat minutely annotated.

The Structure and Distribution of Coral Reefs, Being the first part of the geology of the voyage of the Beagle, under the command of Capt. Fitzroy, R. N. during the years 1832 to 1836, was published in 1842 as Charles Darwin's first monograph, and set out histheory of the formation of coral reefs and atolls. He conceived of the idea during the voyage of the Beagle while still in South America, before he had seen a coral island, and wrote it out as HMS Beagle crossed the Pacific Ocean, completing his draft by November 1835. At the time there was great scientific interest in the way that coral reefs formed, and Captain Robert FitzRoy's orders from the Admiraltyincluded the investigation of an atoll as an important scientific aim of the voyage. FitzRoy chose to survey the Keeling Islands in the Indian Ocean. The results supported Darwin's theory that the various types of coral reefs and atolls could be explained by uplift andsubsidence of vast areas of the Earth's crust under the oceans.

Genre: Life Sciences

Seller: Smashwords, Inc.

The Programming Model of Reality How God Can Speak the Worlds into Being Excerpt from the book: "Most ideas that propose how God created the universe begin with the basic entities, such as light, energy, and matter, already created. The creation of the basic entities themselves (“out of nothing” as the Hebrew word “bara” in Genesis 1:1 indicates) is left as a matter of faith: that God can do it, even if we have no idea how. This remains a good, solid foundation and will always be true: that God is able to do more than we know; that His limitless resources and abilities are accepted by us through our trust of His Word, through faith which He gives us (Ephesians 2:8-10). However, the last half-century has offered us a new window into the realm of “creating things out of nothing” (Ex Nihilo), by using thoughts expressed as command words. So this model runs to the opposite extreme. Rather than avoiding the questions of “how matter and energy were created”, this model embraces them. It starts its proposals for “how God created” at the earliest point: from the existence of God alone. It then proposes how God could have created all things, even the basic entities, simply by using words. Topics covered include: How we view our own reality. A presentation of the model. How energy and matter can be generated. How the Scientific Method works for our reality. The Age of the Earth. The Fraud of Evolution. The Person of Jesus. Uses a readable, entertaining and thought-provoking style. Suitable for high-school age and up.

Many scientists and students are asking for advice in statistical analyses during preparation of their publications or theses. This book aims to address these needs by representing a “recipe book” for statistical analysis in biological sciences. More importantly, limited knowledge in statistical thinking affects both the quality of the experimental design and the outcome of research projects. The content of this book will enable everyone to perform high-quality statistical analyses and to produce publication-quality graphics with no additional costs using R. R is at least as good (and often better) as many expensive statistical software solutions for statistical computing. It runs on all important platforms and provides a wide array of specialized modules and utilities for diverse needs. To use this book the reader does not need to be an expert in statistics. Just copy and paste the syntax of commands and apply them on your own specific data set. The secret in understanding statistics is to perform multiple analyses on diverse data sets to get a better knowledge of the different models. What’s inside? You will find a book introducing into scientific researching with practical step by step examples in data analysis and in visualizing data using R.

Alfredo Marson
Genre: Nature
Publish Date: 10 April 2013
Publisher: Alfredo Marson
Seller: Alfredo Marson

“Bees: knowing them to defend them, knowing them to improve our lives” is a book which aims at guiding the reader into the glamorous world of bees through the simple language of images. It doesn’t intend to go into the scientific knowledge of these fascinating insects thoroughly; it only has educational purposes. As a matter of fact, the concept of “knowing them to defend them” cannot be disregarded if we want to protect the eco-systems and the little, but fundamental forms of life. “Knowing them to improve our lives” is another concept which is developed among the pages in order to point out the extraordinary virtues of bees on the one hand, and the faults of the human species on the other, bringing up a sore point, as they say. The image on the cover shows us a bee coming out from a dandelion flower: it will guide us to the discovery of its world. The final picture, that is the flying bee, is an invitation to follow it inside the extraordinary world of that part of nature which most of the time escapes our notice. This book was intended for schools above all, but I hope it will be appreciated even by a larger reading public, by beekeepers, by naturalists and by people with common interests. Alfredo Marson

While most people are aware that mosquitoes are involved in the transmission of diseases among people or animals, very few have an appreciation for the relevant aspects of the mosquito’s life cycle, how they obtain the blood meals they need to survive, and how these processes are involved in the transmission of disease-causing microorganisms. This book addresses those points via engaging, interactive activities that inform people about two very relevant diseases, namely Zika infection in people and heartworm disease in companion animals.

Genre: Science & Nature
Publish Date: 01 December 2015
Publisher: Shell Interntional BV
Seller: Shell International BV

In The Colours of Energy – Essays on the Future of Energy in Society, leading energy thinkers explore the future of energy in society. In 36 provoking and inspiring essays, they question established truths and chart possible paths towards a more sustainable future. They share their insights on how to provide energy to an increasingly affluent and growing world population within the boundaries of our planet.  The 55 authors are thought leaders in industry, government and academia. Their thinking covers the full range of the issues related to energy transitions. Subjects are as varied as geopolitics, mobility, biomass, geologic climate records, nuclear energy and the ethics of oil recovery.   Jorgen Randers (Club of Rome) draws lessons from his seminal The Limits to Growth. Amory Lovins (Rocky Mountain Institute) paints energy efficiency as a disruptive technology. Jeremy Bentham (Shell’s scenario group) analyses how global carbon emissions may be reduced to a net zero. The book also contains a previously unpublished essay by James Lovelock (‘Gaia hypothesis’), written in 1966 about the year 2000. Some essays focus on specific countries, which show how challenges and approaches differ from place to place. They analyse, for example, how Germany may cope with its excess of renewable power and how China could become the next world leader of green energy.  Energy transitions offer a great deal of opportunities, but immense challenges at the same time, with few easy answers. These challenges merit an informed debate. This is the reason why Shell initiated this book and is publishing it for free. The book was edited by Gert Jan Kramer (Shell, Leiden University) and Bram Vermeer (science writer). It has a foreword by Ben van Beurden (CEO of Shell) and a preface by Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker (Co-President of the Club of Rome).  Written in accessible non-technical language, The colours of energy is an essential read for anyone interested in the world of energy and energy transitions. ‘It is a true venture to debate the future on the basis of what the best energy experts in the world have come up with’ (Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker). Disclaimer: The views expressed in The colours of energy – Essays on the future of energy in society are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of Royal Dutch Shell plc nor any of its subsidiaries (Shell).

Biology is the fastest growing science, and life sciences are being funded and researched more and more. As a result, genetic testing and analysis has emerged in today’s society as a new way to predict one’s health. Scientists use genetic testing and analysis to map individuals’ genes to determine health risks for diseases and conditions or to determine ancestry. Although genetic testing is controversial to some, the benefits of genetic testing, such as early identification of possible diseases and proper dosages of medications, greatly outweigh the possible concerns.

On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life
Charles Darwin
Genre: Science & Nature
Publish Date: 31 July 2015
Publisher: JMJ
Seller: Jinyoung Jang

On the Origin of Species , published on 24 November 1859, is a work of scientific literature by Charles Darwin which is considered to be the foundation of evolutionary biology. Its full title was On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life . In the 1872 sixth edition "On" was omitted, so the full title is The origin of species by means of natural selection, or the preservation of favoured races in the struggle for life. This edition is usually known as The Origin of Species . Darwin's book introduced the scientific theory that populations evolve over the course of generations through a process of natural selection. It presented a body of evidence that the diversity of life arose by common descent through a branching pattern of evolution. Darwin included evidence that he had gathered on the Beagle expedition in the 1830s and his subsequent findings from research, correspondence, and experimentation. Various evolutionary ideas had already been proposed to explain new findings in biology. There was growing support for such ideas among dissident anatomists and the general public, but during the first half of the 19th century the English scientific establishment was closely tied to the Church of England, while science was part of natural theology. Ideas about the transmutation of species were controversial as they conflicted with the beliefs that species were unchanging parts of a designed hierarchy and that humans were unique, unrelated to other animals. The political and theological implications were intensely debated, but transmutation was not accepted by the scientific mainstream. The book was written for non-specialist readers and attracted widespread interest upon its publication. As Darwin was an eminent scientist, his findings were taken seriously and the evidence he presented generated scientific, philosophical, and religious discussion. The debate over the book contributed to the campaign by T. H. Huxley and his fellow members of the X Club to secularise science by promoting scientific naturalism. Within two decades there was widespread scientific agreement that evolution, with a branching pattern of common descent, had occurred, but scientists were slow to give natural selection the significance that Darwin thought appropriate. During "the eclipse of Darwinism" from the 1880s to the 1930s, various other mechanisms of evolution were given more credit. With the development of the modern evolutionary synthesis in the 1930s and 1940s, Darwin's concept of evolutionary adaptation through natural selection became central to modern evolutionary theory, and it has now become the unifying concept of the life sciences.
