It provides a complete rich set of GUI controls, has an excellent API for AJAX and REST, and helps users to organize their code with Model View ViewModel (MVVM) or the MVC architecture, and supports two-way data binding, responsive layouts, responsive design, and more. It is an extensive, one-stop-shop to build an JavaScript RIA application. This book starts with a clear step-by-step installation guide for Ext JS 6 and the additional tools required for development on both Mac and Windows operating systems. It then covers the core concepts and fundamentals of Ext JS 6. We move on to focus on multiple basic GUI controls such as buttons, message boxes, and menus, and a sample project that covers the fundamental and basic GUI controls. You'll also learn how to design a form with form fields such as a text field, number field, date picker, label, and radio button, and learn about form validation. We proceed to show you how to organize your code using the MVVM application architecture, and you'll then jump into advanced controls such as Grids, Trees, Data Views, and Charts. You'll also learn about the API required for AJAX and REST communication, and learn all need to know about Ext JS Data Packages. A working RESTful API sample project is included to help you explore the Data Packages. Finally, we end with a discussion on responsive design, theming your application, and the available plugins. Style and approach This is an example-based guide to help you develop rich Internet applications using Ext JS 6.

The External World and Our Knowledge of It

by Fred Wilson

David Hume is often considered to have been a sceptic, particularly in his conception of the individual's knowledge of the external world. However, a closer examination of his works gives a much different impression of this aspect of Hume's philosophy, one that is due for a thorough scholarly analysis. This study argues that Hume was, in fact, a critical realist in the early twentieth-century sense, a period in which the term was used to describe the epistemological and ontological theories of such philosophers as Roy Wood Sellars and Bertrand Russell.Carefully situating Hume in his historical context, that is, relative to Aristotelian and rationalist traditions, Fred Wilson makes important and unique insights into Humean philosophy. Analyzing key sections of the Treatise, the Enquiry, and the Dialogues concerning Natural Religion, Wilson offers a deeper understanding of Hume by taking into account the philosopher's theories of the external world. Such a reading, the author explains, is not only more faithful to the texts, but also reinforces the view of Hume as a critical realist in light of twentieth-century discussions between externalism and internalism, and between coherentists and foundationalists.Complete with original observations and ideas, this study is sure to generate debates about Humean philosophy, critical realism, and the limits of perceptual knowledge.

Extinct Animals: An Encyclopedia of Species That Have Disappeared During Human History

by Ross Piper

A British scholar of natural history, Piper profiles extinct animals within in chronological sections, first during the past century, then two, then five. He pushes the boundary of what can strictly be called history with the next section, to 10,000 years ago, then progresses ever further back to more than 50,000 years ago. The pivotal section focuses on the relatively short period 10,000 to 12,500 years ago, when many believe a mass extinction period began that will eventually be larger than any in the archaeological record. He downplays the Great Human Hunter model of extinction, mentioning climate change, habitat destruction, and other factors as well as predation from humans and others. Photographs are provided of live or preserved individuals for some recent species, but most are illustrated with drawings by Renata Cunha and Phil Miller, along with a few photographs of displayed skeletons.

Extinct Madagascar: Picturing the Island's Past

by Steven M. Goodman William L. Jungers Plates by Velizar Simeonovski

The landscapes of Madagascar have long delighted zoologists, who have discovered, in and among the island s baobab trees and thickets, a dizzying array of animals, including something approaching one hundred species of lemur. Madagascar s mammal fauna, for example, is far more diverse, and more endemic, than early explorers and naturalists ever dreamed of. But in the past 2,500 or so years a period associated with natural climatic shifts and ecological change, as well as partially coinciding with the arrival of the island s first human settlers a considerable proportion of Madagascar s forests have disappeared; and in the wake of this loss, a number of species unique to Madagascar have vanished forever into extinction. In "Extinct Madagascar," noted scientists Steven M. Goodman and William L. Jungers explore the recent past of these land animal extinctions. Beginning with an introduction to the geologic and ecological history of Madagascar that provides context for the evolution, diversification, and, in some cases, rapid decline of the Malagasy fauna, Goodman and Jungers then seek to recapture these extinct mammals in their environs. Aided in their quest by artist Velizar Simeonovski s beautiful and haunting digital paintings images of both individual species and ecosystem assemblages reproduced here in full color Goodman and Jungers reconstruct the lives of these lost animals and trace their relationships to those still living. Published in conjunction with an exhibition of Simeonovski s artwork set to open at the Field Museum, Chicago, in the fall of 2014, Goodman and Jungers s awe-inspiring book will serve not only as a sobering reminder of the very real threat of extinction, but also as a stunning tribute to Madagascar s biodiversity and a catalyst for further research and conservation.

Extracted

by Jorgen Randers Ugo Bardi

As we dig, drill, and excavate to unearth the planet's mineral bounty, the resources we exploit from ores, veins, seams, and wells are gradually becoming exhausted. Mineral treasures that took millions, or even billions, of years to form are now being squandered in just centuries-or sometimes just decades. Will there come a time when we actually run out of minerals? Debates already soar over how we are going to obtain energy without oil, coal, and gas. But what about the other mineral losses we face? Without metals, and semiconductors, how are we going to keep our industrial system running? Without mineral fertilizers and fuels, how are we going to produce the food we need?Ugo Bardi delivers a sweeping history of the mining industry, starting with its humble beginning when our early ancestors started digging underground to find the stones they needed for their tools. He traces the links between mineral riches and empires, wars, and civilizations, and shows how mining in its various forms came to be one of the largest global industries. He also illustrates how the gigantic mining machine is now starting to show signs of difficulties. The easy mineral resources, the least expensive to extract and process, have been mostly exploited and depleted. There are plenty of minerals left to extract, but at higher costs and with increasing difficulties.The effects of depletion take different forms and one may be the economic crisis that is gripping the world system. And depletion is not the only problem. Mining has a dark side-pollution-that takes many forms and delivers many consequences, including climate change. The world we have been accustomed to, so far, was based on cheap mineral resources and on the ability of the ecosystem to absorb pollution without generating damage to human beings. Both conditions are rapidly disappearing. Having thoroughly plundered planet Earth, we are entering a new world. Bardi draws upon the world's leading minerals experts to offer a compelling glimpse into that new world ahead.
