Zwölf Tage

by Isabelle Rowan Feliz Faber

Fortsetzung zu Eine RandbemerkungWeihnachten ist für viele die Zeit der Liebe und Freude, doch für drei Männer in einem Buchladen namens Margins wird die heiße australische Weihnacht auch zu einer Zeit des Nachdenkens über das, was einst war und das, was noch kommen wird und zeigt ihnen auf, wie wichtig Heimat und Familie sind. Ihre Lebenswege führen im Buchladen zusammen, doch dabei hat jeder seine eigenen Hürden zu meistern: David fällt es schwer, mit seinem Sohn wieder eine Verbindung aufzubauen; John erfährt etwas über den Vater, der ihn verlassen hat, und Jamie macht sich darauf gefasst, Weihnachten zum ersten Mal allein verbringen zu müssen.

Zwischen Faszination und Verteufelung: Chemie in der Gesellschaft

by Thomas Geelhaar Joachim Schummer Marc-Denis Weitze

Chemie! Als Schulfach wird sie von wenigen geliebt und von vielen gef#65533;rchtet. Im Alltag ist sie allgegenw#65533;rtig, unverzichtbar und doch h#65533;ufig Gegenstand gesellschaftlicher Kontroversen. Wie sich die Kluft zwischen Ansehen und Bedeutung der Chemie #65533;berbr#65533;cken l#65533;sst, ist die Leitfrage dieses Bandes. Autoren aus Wirtschaft, Naturwissenschaft sowie Geschichte, Philosophie und Sozialwissenschaften reflektieren Fragen der #65533;ffentlichen Wahrnehmung, Ethik und Perspektiven f#65533;r die Chemie-Kommunikation. _____ Das Verh#65533;ltnis zwischen Chemie und Gesellschaft ist wie bei keiner anderen Naturwissenschaft seit Jahrhunderten gespalten. Alles Chemische ruft bei vielen Menschen Unbehagen hervor, gilt oft pauschal als unnat#65533;rlich, giftig und gef#65533;hrlich. Der Band unternimmt erstmals den Versuch, das Spannungsverh#65533;ltnis zwischen Chemie und Gesellschaft genauer zu beleuchten und L#65533;sungswege aufzuzeigen. Die Beitr#65533;ge untersuchen zun#65533;chst mit soziologischen und demoskopischen Methoden das #65533;ffentliche Bild der Chemie, liefern kulturhistorische Erkl#65533;rungen f#65533;r seine Entstehung und zeigen M#65533;glichkeiten auf, wie Chemie und Gesellschaft wieder zusammenkommen k#65533;nnen durch neue Wege der Chemiedidaktik und Chemieausbildung, Wissenschaftskommunikation, Ethik und des gesellschaftlichen Dialogs. Der Band vereinigt Beitr#65533;ge aus den Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften mit Beitr#65533;gen von der universit#65533;ren und industriellen Chemie sowie von hochrangigen Vertretern der Wissenschaftspolitik. Er begr#65533;ndet zukunftsweisend eine nationale Forschungs- und Lehrinitiative zur Rolle der Chemie in der Gesellschaft. Der Band erf#65533;llt in vielerlei Hinsicht ein Desiderat, das heute umso dringlicher erscheint. Je wichtiger die Chemie bei der L#65533;sung gesellschaftlicher Probleme wird (insbesondere der Umwelt, Energie, Gesundheit, Rohstoffe und Ern#65533;hrung), desto notwendiger ist eine Kl#65533;rung und Harmonisierung ihres Verh#65533;ltnisses zur allgemeinen Gesellschaft. Die verbreiteten Klagen von Chemikern #65533;ber ihr schlechtes #65533;ffentliches Bild ersetzt dieser Band durch fundierte Erkenntnisse #65533;ber seine Beschaffenheit, Ursachen und Verbesserung und liefert so eine solide Handlungsgrundlage. Dar#65533;ber hinaus fordern inzwischen nationale und internationale Fachorganisationen (u. a. die Akkreditierungsagentur ASIIN und das European Chemistry Thematic Network (ECTN) f#65533;r den ,,Chemistry Eurobachelor") die Integration der Thematik ,,Chemie und Gesellschaft" in die universit#65533;re Chemieausbildung, was in Deutschland bisher noch nicht umgesetzt ist. Die Studienkommission der GDCh hat diese Anforderung in ihrer j#65533;ngsten Empfehlung vom M#65533;rz 2015 explizit aufgenommen. Der Band wird daher zum richtigen Zeitpunkt erscheinen, um als Lehrmaterial f#65533;r die entsprechenden neuen Lehrveranstaltungen dienen zu k#65533;nnen.

Zona

by Mathias Énard

Merecedora de los premios Décembre y Livre Inter y considerada una de las mejores novelas del autor galardonado con el Premio Goncourt en 2015, Zona plantea, según el propio Enard, «qué es esta Europa y por qué se cree tan perfecta; reflejar su lado oscuro me parecía obligatorio». En una noche decisiva, Francis Servain Mirkovíc toma el tren de Milán a Roma para vender un maletín lleno de secretos a un representante del Vaticano y, si todo sale según lo planeado, cambiar de vida. Hasta ahora ha sido agente secreto de la Zona, que empezó en Argelia y acabó extendiéndose progresivamente por los países de Oriente Próximo. Quince años lidiando con criminales de guerra, agitadores, terroristas y traficantes de armas, con intermediarios y sobre todo consigo mismo, inmerso en el embriagador ciclo de la violencia. El tren arranca, y con él empieza una larga frase que avanza sin apenas detenerse, un flujo de conciencia que explora el espacio y el tiempo para desenterrar los vestigios de las guerras mediterráneas. Al ritmo del traqueteo del tren, el autor esboza la memoria de este espía en cuya mente se entremezclan los verdugos con las víctimas, el heroísmo con el anonimato, pero también los pintores y los literatos con las amistades y los amores fracasados. Críticas:«La oración de 150.000 palabras que conforma la erudita y ambiciosa novela de Enard es un empeño por crear una enciclopedia flaubertiana de nuestros días al final de un siglo violento.»The New York Times «Una magnífica obra que recorría una barbarie vagabunda e ininterrumpida, desde los Balcanes, Libia o Birkenau hasta Troya.»ABC «Megalómana, casi monstruosa, Zona es una verdadera experiencia de lectura y en ocasiones una prueba.»Le Magazine Littéraire «Los lectores verán con qué facilidad se encabalga uno sobre el monólogo desquiciado del espía, con qué fascinación se deja uno llevar por su respiración... Lo más importante es el aliento. Y Zona lo tiene a raudales.»El espectador «Arriesgado pero inmenso, de una calidad incuestionable, un texto sin concesiones, contundente en su profundidad y deslumbrante en su estilo, intenso como la propia guerra... En definitiva, algo más que entretenimiento incruento.»Revista de Letras «Una obra maestra de principios de siglo XXI que pone de manifiesto lo que mueve a la Europa criminal.»Le Croix «Sus novelas rezuman pasión por el arte y la literatura.»Letras Libres

Zodiacal Symbology and Its Planetary Power

by Isidore Kozminsky

After some years of careful study in the endeavour to fix the special planetary influence attached to each degree of the Zodiac, author Isidore Kozminsky is at length enabled to present the result of his researches in this direction for the consideration of the many sincere students who find in astrology a safe and sure foundation upon which to build the temple of world enlightenment, which the approaching true civilization will demand.From a close examination of thousands of nativities during the past, Kozminsky believes that the planets which will be found associated with the zodiacal degrees in this book are correct and important in every particular. He further believes this is the first attempt in this direction, and is certain that the reader will find it helpful in dealing with the many problems with which he or she has to grapple.

Zeppelin: A Biography

by Margaret L. Goldsmith

IN his fiery, adventurous youth he joined the Union Army in our Civil War, and became vitally interested in aeronauticsAS a man he was known as the most fearless and audacious officer the Württemberg ArmyAT fifty-two he retired and began the great adventure of his life—the conquest of the airTHEN, with magnificent courage, he rode over obstacle and failure to an achievement immortal in the history of flyingOriginally published in 1931, this is a biography of Count von Zeppelin, the German general turned aircraft manufacturer who founded the Zeppelin airship company.Ferdinand Adolf Heinrich August Graf von Zeppelin (8 July 1838 - 8 March 1917), the scion of a noble family, was born in Konstanz, Grand Duchy of Baden (now part of Baden-Württemberg) in Germany. His father was Württemberg Minister and Hofmarschall Friedrich Jerôme Wilhelm Karl Graf von Zeppelin (1807-1886).Count Zeppelin’s military career spanned more than three decades, beginning as an army officer in the army of Württemberg in 1855, seeing active service in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871, and rising through the ranks to commander of the 19th Uhlans in Ulm and envoy of Württemberg in Berlin from 1882-1885. He retired from the army with the rank of Generalleutnant in 1891 at age 52. He was awarded the Ritterkreuz (Knight’s Cross) of the Order of Distinguished Service of Württemberg.His service as an official observer with the Union Army during the American Peninsular War led him to travel to St. Paul, Minnesota, where the German-born former Army balloonist John Steiner offered tethered flights; it was his first ascent in a balloon during this visit that is said to have been the inspiration of Count Zeppelin’s later interest in aeronautics.He passed away in 1917 at the age of 78, before the end of World War I. The unfinished World War II German aircraft carrier Graf Zeppelin and two rigid airships were named after him.

Zen Buddhism: Selected Writings of D. T. Suzuki

by D. T. Suzuki William Barrett

No other figure in history has played a bigger part in opening the West to Buddhism than the eminent Zen author, D. T. Suzuki, and in this reissue of his best work readers are given the very heart of Zen teaching. Zen Buddhism, which sold more than 125,000 as an Anchor paperback after its publication in 1956, includes a basic historical background as well as a thorough overview of the techniques for Zen practice. Concepts and terminology such as satori, zazen, and koans, as well as the various elements of this philosophy are all given clear explanations. But while Suzuki takes nothing for granted in the reader's understanding of the fundamentals, he does not give a merely rudimentary overview. Each of the essays included here, particularly those on the unconscious mind and the relation of Zen to Western philosophy, go far beyond other sources for their penetrating insights and timeless wisdom. What is most important about D. T. Suzuki's work, however--and what comes across so powerfully in these selections--is his unparalleled ability to communicate the experiential aspect of Zen. The intensity here with which Zen philosophy comes to life is without parallel in the canon of Buddhist literature. Suzuki stands apart from all teachers before or since because of his exceptional ability to eloquently capture in words the seemingly inexpressible essence of Zen.

Zapped: From Infrared to X-rays, the Curious History of Invisible Light

by Bob Berman

How much do you know about the radiation all around you?Your electronic devices swarm with it; the sun bathes you in it. It's zooming at you from cell towers, microwave ovens, CT scans, mammogram machines, nuclear power plants, deep space, even the walls of your basement. You cannot see, hear, smell or feel it, but there is never a single second when it is not flying through your body. Too much of it will kill you, but without it you wouldn't live a year.From beloved popular science writer Bob Berman, ZAPPED tells the story of all the light we cannot see, tracing infrared, microwaves, ultraviolet, X-rays, gamma rays, radio waves and other forms of radiation from their historic, world-altering discoveries in the 19th century to their central role in our modern way of life, setting the record straight on health costs (and benefits) and exploring the consequences of our newest technologies. Lively, informative, and packed with fun facts and "eureka moments," ZAPPED will delight anyone interested in gaining a deeper understanding of our world.

The Z Murders

by J. Jefferson Farjeon

Richard Temperley arrives at Euston station early on a fogbound London morning. He takes refuge in a nearby hotel, along with a disagreeable fellow passenger, who had snored his way through the train journey. But within minutes the other man has snored for the last time – he has been shot dead while sleeping in an armchair. Temperley has a brief encounter with a beautiful young woman, but she flees the scene. When the police arrive, Detective Inspector James discovers a token at the crime scene: “a small piece of enamelled metal. Its colour was crimson, and it was in the shape of the letter Z.” Temperley sets off in pursuit of the mysterious woman from the hotel, and finds himself embroiled in a cross-country chase – by train and taxi – on the tail of a sinister serial killer. This classic novel by the author of the best-selling Mystery in White is a gripping thriller by a neglected master of the genre.

Youth Activism and Contentious Politics in Egypt

by Nadine Sika

During the Arab uprisings of late 2010 and early 2011, nine regimes throughout North Africa and the Middle East were confronted by major demonstrations and contentious events. When the uprisings began in Egypt, it became evident that youth movements were going to play a large part in the uprisings themselves, as well as the ensuing political and social changes. In this book, Nadine Sika demonstrates how youth movements initiated contestation, and how the regime in Egypt reacted through a display of authoritarian resilience, creating opportunities, threats to and constraints on the ability of youth movements to mobilize and to network. On the other hand, she explores how youth movement's repertoires can cause a regime to adapt, upgrade, or downgrade its authoritarian tools in an attempt to control, co-opt, or disempower the movement, highlighting how a regime's perception of a threat can propel it towards either defensive or offensive strategies.

You're Teaching My Child What?

by Miriam Grossman

If you think sex education is still about the birds and the bees, you're wrong. And it's not about science either. If you're a parent with children in the public school system, you need to know what's really going on.In You're Teaching My Child What? Dr. Miriam Grossman rips back the curtain on sex education today, exposing a sordid truth. Instead of teaching our children the facts of life, sex educators are lying to them, ignoring medical fact in favor of politicized, and dangerous, propaganda that could ruin your child's life forever.In You're Teaching My Child What? you'll learn what sex educators don't want you to know:* Why the discredited founder of "sexology"--dead for half a century--has more influence on sex education than today's most eminent neurobiologists* How information your child gets about common infections like herpes, warts, and Chlamydia is whitewashed* When "safe sex" isn't safe: why condoms won't protect your teens from some of the most serious sexually transmitted diseases* How sex educators try to normalize fringe behaviors--ignoring the health risks to your childrenThe sex education establishment would like to lull you into thinking that they know best--but the epidemic of sexually transmitted infections in young people today is testimony to a system that's gone mad.Parents need to arm themselves and their children with the facts--the real facts of life. In You're Teaching My Child What? Dr. Miriam Grossman does just that, in an essential book to inform yourself and protect your children.
