Fundamentals of Microbial Biotechnology:Incorporates fundamental principles applications of biotechnology in relation to microbiology in ten important topics Uttamkumar S. Bagde
This practical and design-oriented book focuses on ground characterization and structural calculation, as part of the active structural design methodology. With a focus on rock tunnelling it offers a comprehensive rather than a topic-based perspective, deriving sound tunnel design criteria and methods from basic principles. Ground characterization includes excavations, site investigation, and in situ stress determination, culminating in geotechnical classifications. The book then deals with various construction methods and their appropriate calculations, which range from constitutive models for the stress-strain behaviour of an excavation and tunnel support elements to a full stress-strain analysis methodology. The heavily practical approach of the book draws on the authors´ twenty years of tunnelling experience in Spain and South America. It will help any young or established professional who wants to develop a career in the underground field across both civil engineering and geology. As it incorporates the very fundamentals of tunneling design, it can be used as a support for tunneling courses or as a textbook for master´s and PhD courses. Benjamín Celada was Chief Tunnel Engineer at Hunosa and Potasas de Navarra S.A. before founding Geocontrol S.A. He has also worked for twenty years as Professor of Underground Works at the Polytechnic Mining University in Madrid, Spain. Z. T. Bieniawski directed the Rock Mechanics Department of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research in Pretoria, then taught at the Pennsylvania State University for twenty years.
There´s an amazing inner world occurring beyond what you can actually see with your eyes. This world incorporates all the fundamental elements of life such as resources, power, wealth, and the real definition of your life. It is a part of you that makes it possible for you to live your life fully, live large, do and be just about anything you want. Having said that, the majority of people are trying to thrive in this world with the use of the five basic senses that you originally used while growing up and developing. Your external senses - touch, hearing, smell, taste, and sight - are extremely essential assets but these should not be used exclusively to direct your life. Contrary to the common belief, these five senses aren´t the most extraordinary and effective asset we possess. In fact trying to succeed in life just using the most obvious tools in the box is why 80% of people will spend their entire life never having enough. Many people believe the erroneous programming that has been passed down from generation to generation. The fallacy that only through blood, sweat and tears is money earned. They explain away the wealthy as being corrupt, dishonest or unjustly lucky. Firstly, you should recognize that cultivating wealth in life is an opportunity open to all. Wealth is a skill set, which you can and should master. To succeed in this is your duty as a human being. You did not come here to live in scarcity. In this book I will show you how your current programming and western upbringing, have weakened your connection to the divine core of your being. I will reveal how you reactivate this link and attract abundance. You will make it a dance of your life, and by this you are opening the floodgates to riches, wealth, and prosperity in your daily life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Craig Beck.

Expand Raspberry Pi capabilities with fundamental engineering principles Exploring Raspberry Pi is the innovators guide to bringing Raspberry Pi to life. This book favors engineering principles over a ´recipe´ approach to give you the skills you need to design and build your own projects. You´ll understand the fundamental principles in a way that transfers to any type of electronics, electronic modules, or external peripherals, using a ´´learning by doing´´ approach that caters to both beginners and experts. The book begins with basic Linux and programming skills, and helps you stock your inventory with common parts and supplies. Next, you´ll learn how to make parts work together to achieve the goals of your project, no matter what type of components you use. The companion website provides a full repository that structures all of the code and scripts, along with links to video tutorials and supplementary content that takes you deeper into your project. The Raspberry Pi´s most famous feature is its adaptability. It can be used for thousands of electronic applications, and using the Linux OS expands the functionality even more. This book helps you get the most from your Raspberry Pi, but it also gives you the fundamental engineering skills you need to incorporate any electronics into any project. Develop the Linux and programming skills you need to build basic applications Build your inventory of parts so you can always ´´make it work´´ Understand interfacing, controlling, and communicating with almost any component Explore advanced applications with video, audio, real-world interactions, and more Be free to adapt and create with Exploring Raspberry Pi.
A unique fitness program from a highly respected spiritual leader that blends physical and spiritual practice for everyone - regardless of age, spiritual background, or ability - to great benefits for both body and soul. As a Tibetan lama and leader of Shambhala (an international community of 165 meditation centers), Sakyong Mipham has found physical activity to be essential for spiritual well-being. He´s been trained in horsemanship and martial arts but has a special love for running. Here he incorporates his spiritual practice with running, presenting basic meditation instruction and fundamental principles he has developed. Even though both activities can be complicated, the lessons here are simple and designed to show how the melding of internal practice with physical movement can be used by anyone - regardless of age, spiritual background, or ability - to benefit body and soul.
