Among all the periods in ancient Egyptian history, the Ptolemaic Kingdom and its most famous ruler, Cleopatra, may be the most well-known today. By the 4th century BCE, it appeared as though ancient Egypt was in its final death throes. It had long ceased to be an influential kingdom in the Near East and Mediterranean regions, and it had been ruled over by a succession of foreign peoples including Libyans, Nubians, Assyrians, and Persians. But just when Egypt seemed was doomed to pass forever into obscurity, it was reinvigorated by outsiders, most notably Alexander the Great. While in the process of campaigning to destroy the Achaemenid Persian Empire and conquer the world in 331 BC, he made a pit stop in Egypt that forever changed the course of Egyptian history. Although his understanding of ancient Egyptian chronology and religion was minimal, Alexander was intrigued by ancient pharaonic culture, knowing, as the fifth century BC Greek historian Herodotus once wrote, “Egypt is the gift of the Nile.” As a result, Alexander endeavored to incorporate the land of the pharaohs into Hellenic Civilization. In the latter first century BC, men like Julius Caesar, Mark Antony, and Octavian participated in two civil wars that would spell the end of the Roman Republic and determine who would become the Roman emperor. In the middle of it all was history’s most famous woman, Cleopatra, who famously seduced both Caesar and Antony and thereby positioned herself as one of the most influential people in a world of powerful men. Cleopatra was a legendary figure even to contemporary Romans and the ancient world, and she was a controversial figure who was equally reviled and praised through the years, depicted both as a benevolent ruler and an evil seductress (occasionally at the same time). As for Roman Egypt, the period from 30 BC until the Roman Empire was split into two halves in the fourth century CE. It is scarcely mentioned, yet, it was a time when Egypt, if no l 1. Language: English. Narrator: Colin Fluxman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/134117/bk_acx0_134117_sample.mp3.

Hades & Hocus Pocus , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 394min

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Two classic noir novellas about young men who find treacherous jobs during the Great Depression. In "Hades", Alexander Titus, a former Olympic decathlon star, comes to Hollywood looking for work. He and his friend Haw Gooch are down to their last dollar when they find jobs as bodyguards for erratic film producer Roger Quinlan. Quinlan seems quite paranoid, claiming that he’s being stalked by a demon and that he found Hades in a cavern in New Mexico. The story sounds crazy, but when Titus is framed for murder, he realizes Quinlan’s alleged hell might be the one place where he can also find the truth. In "Hocus Pocus", two penniless traveling magicians respond to an ad for a mind reader. A psychology professor hires them to infiltrate a group of evangelists who incorporate mind reading into their preaching. Cal “Marvelous” Merton and his assistant, Imagination Daly, will study the evangelists’ methods and report back on whether their mind reading is genuine. But as Merton and Daly join the New Apostles, the air of danger is palpable, and questions arise about their employer and what exactly they’re investigating. 1. Language: English.

Exploitative Play in Live Poker: How to Manipul...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Many poker players can make good decisions at the table with a reasonable frequency. Nevertheless, there are numerous situations where even very experienced players behave in predictable ways. These deeply-ingrained habits lead them to make mistakes. The problem is that these situations won't often arise at the table by chance - you have to make them happen. Exploitative Play in Live Poker is a ground-breaking work that teaches you how to create the circumstances where your opponents will be likely to blunder and how to exploit them when they do. To achieve this you will need to put to one side starting-hand charts, balance, and GTO (Game Theory Optimal) play. Instead you will incorporate new concepts that may well place you outside your comfort zone. However, your style will now be forcing the other players at the table outside of their comfort zone and, unlike you, they won't know how to adapt. Learn how to:Counter the auto-continuation-bettorDevelop a powerful donk-betting strategyUse the overbet, the check-raise, and the three-barrel effectivelyAs well as being a highly successful player, Alex Fitzgerald runs a poker consultancy that serves more than 1,000 professional poker players in 60 countries. As part of this work, he has very likely trawled through more hand history databases than anyone else. This gives him a unique insight into how players really play, especially when placed under pressure and forced into unfamiliar situations.  1. Language: English. Narrator: Alexander Fitzgerald.

Navigation and Robotics in Spine Surgery
115,98 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A unique how-to guide for spine surgeons on state-of-the-art computer-assisted navigation and robotic surgery techniquesThe past decade has seen major advances in image-guided spine surgery techniques, with robotically assisted approaches emerging in the last five years. While early adopters of this technology paved the way for more widespread use of navigated and robotic systems, barriers still exist. Navigation and Robotics in Spine Surgery by master spine surgeon Alexander Vaccaro and esteemed co-editors Jaykar Panchmatia, David Kaye, and Srinivas Prasad addresses existing issues such as the perception of increased upfront costs, intrusion on current workflow, and a lack of understanding about the potential ways these technologies can enhance the surgical experience and improve patient outcomes.Organized into six sections, the book starts with evidence-based fundamentals of navigated spine surgery and robotics including discussion of instrumentation and mechanics. Sections 2-5 serve as a surgical handbook for spine surgeons who wish to introduce these technologies into practice or augment their current repertoire with more complex techniques. Topics range from more routine procedures such as navigated and robotic minimally invasive TLIF to complex approaches like intraoperative ultrasound guided intradural spinal tumor resection. The final section looks at future directions and potential new applications for these technologies.Key HighlightsAn impressive group of international spine surgeons who pioneered navigation and robotic surgery techniques share invaluable tricks of the tradeDiscussion of fluoroscopy- and intraoperative CT-based platforms, applications for intraoperative sonography, and radiation exposure and minimization strategiesSpecial topics include OR set-up and workflow, surmounting the learning curve, artificial intelligence, and lessons learned from other industriesProcedural videos demonstrate the benefits of computer-assisted navigation and robotic techniquesThis book is essential reading for orthopaedic surgery and neurosurgery residents and spine fellows who wish to learn about and incorporate these technologies into practice. Seasoned spine surgeons seeking to expand the scope of their navigated/robotic practice will benefit from chapters detailing advanced approaches.This book includes complimentary access to a digital copy on https://medone.thieme.com.

ELEMENTS OF OPTICAL MINERALOGY AN INTRODUCTION TO MICROSCOPIC PETROGRAPHY BY ALEXANDER N. WINCHELL, Doct. Univ. Paris Professor of Mineralogy and Petrology , University of Wisconsin SECOND EDITION, SECOND PRINTING PART III. DETERMINATIVE TABLES WITH A COLORED CHART AND Two DIAGRAMS NEW YORK JOHN WILEY SONS, INC. LONDON CHAPMAN HALL, LIMITED 939 COPYRIGHT, 1929, 1939 BY ALEXANDER N. WINCHELL All Rights Reserved This book or any part thereof must not be reproduced in any form without the written permission of the publisher. PRINTED IN U. 8. A. PRESS OF BRAUNWORTH A CO., INC. BUILDERS OF BOOKS BRIDGEPORT. CONN. PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION SECOND PRINTING DURING the ten years since the publication of the second edition of these tables many new minerals have been described. About fifty of these are included in the third edition of Part II, which was published in 1933, while nearly seventy are of more recent date. The author has attempted to include in supplementary tables in this printing all the new minerals which seem to be well established and adequately described as to their optical properties. Unfortunately it has not been feasible to incorporate them in the main tables, but this is probably not a very serious difficulty since the minerals in question are all very rare. It is hoped that the use of colored paper for the table III classify ing minerals on the basis of their color and pleochroism in thin section will make it easy to find the various tables quickly and con veniently. In the preparation of this printing the author has benefited by the assistance and encouragement of his wife, Florence S. Winchell. ALEXANDER N. WINCHELL MADISON, WISCONSIN March, 1939 PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION Or course tables prepared for the determination of minerals by optical methods should be based on the chief optical properties of the minerals. However, it is not at all obvious just which optical prop erty should be used first in classifying the minerals. After several attempts to combine the most important properties in one table so that more than one of them could be used first, it seemed wiser to simplify the arrangement by making separate tables for each important property. In addition to the tables which are given, tables might be prepared based primarily upon the optic angle, optic sign, or extinction angles. However, the practical groups based upon optic angle or optic sign are too few in number to be satisfactory, while extinction angles are almost useless in distinguishing between tetragonal, hexagonal and orthorhombic minerals. Thus it comes about that the chief tables which are given are based upon refringence, or birefringence, or color and pleochroism. As the dispersion methods of determining minerals come into wider use the table based upon dispersion will become more complete and more useful. It is a pleasure to acknowledge that these tables have been improved as a result of thoughtful constructive criticism of the first draft by Professor F. F. Grout of the University of Minnesota the writer has also had the advantage of an opportunity to examine copies of determinative mineral tables prepared by Professor Grout and others prepared by Professor D. J. Fisher of the University of Chicago. He has also benefited notably by frequent consultations with Professor R. C. Emmons of the University of Wisconsin. Plate II, based on refringence and birefringence, has been prepared along lines suggested by Professor C. O. Swanson of the Michigan College of Mines and Professor R. H. B. Jones of the State College of Washington. ALEXANDER N. WINCHELL. MADISON, WISCONSIN, January, 1929 vu CONTENTS PAGE INTRODUCTION i TABLE I. OPAQUE MINERALS 7 TABLE II.

Ernesto Neto
49,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto (born 1964) draws on a variety of sources for inspiration, ranging from the natural world to department stores, modernists like Alexander Calder and Constantin Brancusi to Brazilian predecessors like Lygia Clark and Helio Oiticica. Neto's multi-sensory environments exist, in the artist's words, 'as a place of sensations, a place of exchange and continuity between people.' This important survey is published to accompany an exhibition at London's Hayward Gallery, in which Neto reimagines the gallery's concrete spaces and brutalist architecture with a new site-specific commission and a number of new sculptural works. The artist's works incorporate the Hayward's outdoor sculpture terraces, creating an interrelated series of spaces in which the relationships between inside and outside are provocatively reconfigured. Spanning Neto's career to date, this publication contains texts by key international scholars.

Polymer Composites
353,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The use of polymer composites in various engineering applications has become state of the art. This multi-author volume provides a useful summary of updated knowledge on polymer composites in general, practically integrating experimental studies, theoretical analyses and computational modeling at different scales, i. e. , from nano- to macroscale. Detailed consideration is given to four major areas: structure and properties of polymer nanocomposites, characterization and modeling, processing and application of macrocomposites, and mechanical performance of macrocomposites. The idea to organize this volume arose from a very impressive workshop - The First International Workshop on Polymers and Composites at IVW Kaiserslautern: Invited Humboldt-Fellows and Distinguished Scientists, which was held on May 22-24,2003 at the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany. The contributing authors were invited to incorporate updated knowledge and developments into their individual chapters within a year after the workshop, which finally led to these excellent contributions. The success of this workshop was mainly sponsored by the German Alexander von Humboldt Foundation through a Sofia Kovalevskaja Award Program, financed by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research within the 'Investment in the Future Program' of the German Government. In 2001, the Humboldt Foundation launched this new award program in order to offer outstanding young researchers throughout the world an opportunity to establish their own work-groups and to develop innovative research concepts virtually in Germany.
