From Feasting To Fasting, The Evolution of a Sin: Attutudes to Food in Late Antiquity
Publisher: Routledge | ISBN: 0415135958 | edition 1996 | PDF | 304 pages | 10,8 mb

In this highly original study, Veronika Grimm discusses early Christian texts dealing with food, eating and fasting. Modern day eating disorders often equate food with sin and see fasting as an attempt to regain purity, an attitude which can also be observed in early Christian beliefs in the mortification of the flesh. Describing first the historical and social context of Judaism and the Greco-Roman world, the author then proceeds to analyse Christian attitudes towards food. Descriptions of foods found in the Pauline Epistles, the Acts of the Apostles, Tertullian or Augustine are compared to contemporary Jewish or Greco-Roman pagan texts. Thus, a particular Christian mode of fasting is elaborated which influences us to the present day: ascetic fasting for the suppression of the sexual urges of the body.

Introduction to Orbital Mechanics
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Educational Publishers | ISBN: 020102358X | edition 1971 | PDF | 341 pages | 12,6 mb

This chapter provides an introduction to the Newtonian particle dynamics of n bodies with gravitational fields. Ater establishing the equations of motion and their well-known integrals we specialize the problem to that of two bodies. This can be solved analytically and, since it so frequently approximates the real state of affairs in orbital mechanics, it is the conceptual basis for most mathematical formulations of interest. We examine several approaches to this problem and derive the relations between constants of the motion and the initial position and velocity of one body with respect to the other.

Publisher: Sams | ISBN: 0672320797 | edition 2001 | CHM | 304 pages | 10,6 mb

This book will have case studies directed to intermediate, advanced and professional Flash developers. It is assumed that all readers are familiar with Flash and how to use its tool sets. The advanced case study will mention additional web technologies such as ASP, JavaScript and SQL Server but these technologies will not necessarily need to be fully understood by the reader. The other technologies that are used in the book will not be explained in tutorial manner, instead they are mentioned in order to show how they were used to supplement and extend the capabilities of Flash. The goal of the case studies is not to provide copy and paste code or timelines but to reveal the process to the reader so they can elevate their projects to the same.

World War I
Publisher: 21st Century | ISBN: 080502848X | edition 1997 | CHM | 64 pages | 14,4 mb

The serviceably written texts are interwoven with excerpts from letters, diaries, and newspaper accounts. As history curricula increasingly require primary-source materials, these titles should be useful in that regard. Each one begins with maps of the respective areas of conflict that include timelines of major events. Tables of contents, source notes, lists of further reading, and indexes make the books suitable for research. Pertinent black-and-white photographs appear throughout. Although the treatments are extremely superficial, these titles may be just right for students wanting general historical outlines.

Secrets of Chess Transformations
Publisher: Gambit Publications | ISBN: 190460014X | edition 2004 | PDF | 208 pages | 15,2 mb

One of the most important skills in chess is the ability to transform one type of advantage into another. The great champions effortlessly convert an initiative into an attack, an attack into a material gain, and move into an endgame where this advantage can be exploited smoothly. Readers know from their own games that this is not as simple as it looks. It is all too easy to miss the right moment to make the transformation, and suddenly encounter unnecessary difficulties. In this wide-ranging text, experienced trainer Drazen Marovic discusses all aspects of chess transformations, enabling readers to sense when they are necessary, and to decide how to bring them about. This understanding will also help them to frustrate their opponents' plans, and put up a resilient defence in difficult positions. Topics include: pseudo-sacrifices, sacrificial risks, real sacrifices, counter-sacrifices, development advantage, overextension, and simplification.

The Key to Newton's Dynamics: The Kepler Problem and the Principia
Publisher: University of California Press | ISBN: 0520202171 | edition 1996 | PDF | 330 pages | 11,5 mb

While much has been written on the ramifications of Newton's dynamics, until now the details of Newton's solution were available only to the physics expert. The Key to Newton's Dynamics clearly explains the surprisingly simple analytical structure that underlies the determination of the force necessary to maintain ideal planetary motion. J. Bruce Brackenridge sets the problem in historical and conceptual perspective, showing the physicist's debt to the works of both Descartes and Galileo. He tracks Newton's work on the Kepler problem from its early stages at Cambridge before 1669, through the revival of his interest ten years later, to its fruition in the first three sections of the first edition of the Principia.

Michael Sorkin is widely hailed as one of the best architecture critics writing today. Iconoclastic and often controversial, he is a witty, entertaining, yet ultimately serious writer. In this new collection, Sorkin reviews the state of contemporary architecture and surveys the dramatic changes in the urban environment of the past decade. From New York to New Delhi, from Shanghai to Cairo, Sorkin offers a sweeping assessment of the impact of globalization, environmental degradation, electronic media, rapid growth, and the legacies of modernist planning. Whether laying out, manifesto-like, eleven necessary tasks for urban design, providing a fresh take on the Disneyfication of Times Square, grappling with sprawl, or blasting the nostalgic prescriptions of "new urbanist" communities (which he dubs "Reaganville"), Sorkin makes a compelling argument for an architecture and urbanism firmly grounded in both artistic expression and social purpose.

Guide to the Architecture of Minnesota
Publisher: University of Minnesota Press | ISBN: 0816607753 | edition 1978 | PDF | 320 pages | 37,8 mb

This book was conceived from its inception to supplement and augment the Bicentennial exhibition, The Art and Architecture of Minnesota, organized and presented by the University Gallery in conjunction with the Minnesota Society of Architects. The exhibition was more than three years in the planning stages, and at every step our desire was to publish something other than an exhibition catalogue — something at once less ephemeral and more comprehensive yet not boring that ubiquitous person, the "interested layman," with heavily erudite prose. In the end we decided to publish A Guide to the Architecture of Minnesota. Long a priority of the Minnesota Society of Architects, such a guide seemed to us to be the sort of publication which would most nearly meet our needs.
