Evaluating Resource Potential of Gas hydrate Us...
68,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book contains development of a method to evaluate resource potential of gas hydrate, which is an important alternative energy resource. Gas hydrate is deposited in sediment where pressure is very high and temperature is low in various forms like pore-filling, fracture-filling etc. Effective medium theory (EMT), a rock physics model based on the first principal of physics, is applied here for quantitative estimation of gas hydrate to meet different geological conditions as well as different gas hydrate morphologies. The effectiveness of the EMT is established through case studies of KG basin, India, Cascadia margin, Canada, Blake Ridge, USA, and Makran Accretionary prism, Pakistan.

The Environmental Impact of Geothermal Power
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Geothermal power utilises the heat energy naturally produced within the Earth. Its wide abundance and renewable nature make it an attractive alternative energy source to fossil fuels. The environmental impact of geothermal power plants is negligible in comparison to conventional combustion plants, and the book assesses the environmental impact of the Nesjavellir geothermal plant in Iceland as a case study to highlight this. The research presents a methodology for assessing the water quality and air emissions from geothermal plants and discusses the potential of geothermal power as a clean and renewable alternative to fossil fuels. Geothermal technology is increasingly being utilised by countries all over the world, especially in developing countries such as the Philippines, Mexico and Costa Rica. The different ways in which geothermal energy can be harnessed: wet steam, dry steam and Hot Dry Rock methods, and the availability of at least low-enthalpy resources of 125ºC in all countries suggests that this resource has the potential to have a wide spatial distribution. However, it is unlikely to be developed in all countries due to the differing costs of utilising it.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Paul Collins (born 1954, New York City) is an American writer, author, music producer, and multi-instrumentalist. He is best known for his work in the power pop groups The Nerves and The Beat. Paul Collins has released several solo projects with his alternative country group The Paul Collins Band, who play Americana music inspired by country rock and folk rock. Collins also continues to tour with his The Beat, his longtime rock group which combines power pop with Alternative rock and punk rock. Paul Collins began his career as the drummer (and sometime singer & songwriter) in an influential Los Angeles power pop trio The Nerves, alongside Jack Lee and future Plimsouls frontman Peter Case. The band are best remembered for "Hanging on the Telephone", a song later made famous by Blondie. After The Nerves' demise, Paul Collins formed his own group as singer, rhythm guitarist, and songwriter for The Beat, sometimes called The Paul Collins Beat to avoid confusion with the British ska group also called The Beat (or The English Beat in the US).

SR-71 is an American alternative rock band that was formed in Baltimore, Maryland. They are best known for their 2000 single "Right Now", their 2002 single "Tomorrow", and as the authors of Bowling for Soup''s 2004 hit "1985" (which was released first on their album Here We Go Again). The name of the band came from SR-71 Blackbird, a supersonic surveillance aircraft of the United States Air Force. The band was originally known as Honor Among Thieves, and as would be the case with SR-71, singer/songwriter/guitarist Mitch Allan was the only constant member.

Popular Representations of Development
71,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Popular representations of development and poverty have always been all around us, and scholars need to understand these alternative conceptualizations of reality to enrich their own discipline-based analysis and policy recommendations. This excellent volume suggests some ways in which this can happen, setting out the gains and the pitfalls of engagement. It is a thought provoking contribution to an important issue in development studies. –Ravi Kanbur, Cornell University, USA. This book is for a worthy cause, that of going beyond the currently popular quantitative and experimental approach to economic development, to look into wider, often more insightful, humanistic forms of representation of the development process. It shows how representations in literature, films, television, and internet may capture the complexity and nuances of the social processes involved in development in ways not considered in the standard approach. –Pranab Bardhan, University of California, Berkeley, USA. This wonderfully engaging and thought-provoking collection provides many lessons about representation and power for researchers and students alike. It will prove to be an invaluable teaching resource and will become a benchmark for much future research. –Cathy McIlwaine, University of London, UK. An important milestone in development studies which shows how literature, film and other discourses need to be part of the mix when we try to understand how other people live. –Giles Foden, author of The Last King of Scotland and Turbulence. An essential analysis of the world of international development… and essential reading for rock stars everywhere. –Richard Bean, author of The God Botherers and One Man, Two Guvnors. …this book provides a timely and significant parameter in the study of development through the exploration of its popular representations in representative Western democracies. Through the illustration and analysis of diverse case studies with respect to the power of the image in shaping and sharing meaning about the concept of development, it illuminates the prevalence of popular culture and calls for a more grounded understanding of public perceptions of progress. It is certain to be a great read for scholars of development studies, media and communications, sociology, anthropology and geography at all levels. –Eleftheria Lekakis, Lecturer in Media and Communications, University of Sussex

Turn Up The Music
36,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Turn Up the Music is a call to action for parents. For decades, parents have asked youth to turn down the music, but instead should be asking them to turn it up. Parents need to hear what music is saying to their children so they can talk to them about the messages. Based on Jeff's 20-plus years of experience in working with youth and teens as a counselor and prevention specialist, Turn Up The Music offers help for parents on a broad variety of topics. Included are discussions, examples, case studies, ideas, and strategies for everything from bullying and teasing to gangs and violence. There is also a chapter encouraging parents and educators to work together and support one another so that no child is left behind. Parents will learn about different genres of popular music--including rap, rock, pop, metal, rave, techno, mainstream and alternative--who's listening to what, the messages music conveys to youth, and what impact different types of music may have on them.
