Description :


From the author of the #1 bestselling The Atlantis Gene comes a new novel in which the world’s past and future rests in the hands of five unwitting strangers in this definitive edition of A. G. Riddle's time-traveling, mind-bending speculative thriller. En route to London from New York, Flight 305 suddenly loses power and crash-lands in the English countryside, plunging a group of strangers into a mysterious adventure that will have repercussions for all of humankind. Struggling to stay alive, the survivors soon realize that the world they’ve crashed in is very different from the one they left. But where are they? Why are they here? And how will they get back home? Five passengers seem to hold clues about what’s really going on: writer Harper Lane, venture capitalist Nick Stone, German genetic researcher Sabrina Schröder, computer scientist Yul Tan, and Grayson Shaw, the son of a billionaire philanthropist. As more facts about the crash emerge, it becomes clear that some in this group know more than they’re letting on—answers that will lead Harper and Nick to uncover a far-reaching conspiracy involving their own lives. As they begin to piece together the truth, they discover they have the power to change the future and the past—to save our world . . . or end it. A wildly inventive and propulsive adventure full of hairpin twists, Departure is a thrilling tale that weaves together power, ambition, fate, memory, and love, from a bold and visionary talent.

Point of Departure offers a practical metacognitive and transformational learning strategy for human surviving and thriving. Using five foundational and interactive Indigenous worldview beliefs that contrast sharply with our dominant worldview ones, everyone can reclaim the original instructions for living on Earth. Without the resulting change in consciousness that can emerge from this learning approach, no modern technologies can save us. The five foundational Indigenous precepts relate to a radically different understanding about: (1) Trance based learning (2) Courage and Fearlessness (3) Community Oriented Self Authorship (4) Sacred Communications (5)Nature as Ultimate Teacher "

Description :


Joseph Brodsky, the Russian Nobel laureate, once remarked that memory and art have in common the 'ability to select, a taste for detail.' In the work of Nathanael O'Reilly, memory and art come together to bring us poems that remember what cannot-what must not-be forgotten, in rich and telling detail and with a taste for quiet but incisive irony.--Paul Kane ***Nathanael O'Reilly's poems sound the major themes of Australian poetry: landscape, displacement, yearning, and above all a critique of cultural narrowness. O'Reilly's plain-spoken diction is often laced with understated wit, but is given ballast by its principled grounding in lived experience.--Nicholas Birns ***The poems in this transnational, cosmopolitan collection traverse fourteen countries, from Australia, the poet's homeland, to the United States, his place of residence, making stops in ancestral homelands Ireland and England, and passing through continental Europe and the Middle East. O'Reilly's poetry continually crosses both visible and invisible borders, excavating landscapes and the local, belonging and unbelonging, cross-cultural exchanges, expatriation, globalisation, exile, identity, youth, loss, relationships, aging, and death. The speakers in the poems are often in motion or making preparations for departure, unwilling and unable to remain static, always eager to explore. (Series: UWAP Poetry) [Subject: Poetry]

But what if Jamal could have a second chance? A new technology allows Q to be reanimated for a few weeks before he dies . . . permanently. And Q’s mom is not about to let anyone ruin this miracle by telling Q about his impending death. So how can Jamal fix everything if he can’t tell Q the truth?

Description :


In this second collection of his writing based on his own dreams serialized in a Cairo magazine before his death in 2006 at the age of 94, Egyptian Nobel laureate Naguib Mahfouz again displays his matchless ability to tell epic stories in uncannily terse form. As in the first volume (The Dreams, AUC Press, 2004), we meet more of the real (and unreal) figures that filled the author's life with glory and worry, ecstasy and ennui, in tales dreamed by a mind too fertile to ever truly rest. In them, a man sent by a victorious invader to open a storehouse holding the statue of Egypt's reawakening finds his access denied by a menacing reptile. An obscure writer dies, and a despairing inscription on his coffin turns his funeral into a massive demonstration, assuring the deceased of a deathless reputation. A man opens a stubborn gate at the end of a lengthy chore, staring at a lake over which loom the illuminated faces of those he has loved, but who are no more--in search of the soul who made him long to live forever. The ever more condensed and poetic episodes in Dreams of Departure movingly carry on Mahfouz's only major work after a knife attack in 1994 ironically inspired him to dream in print for his readers.

Description :


A measure of the degree of departure of a landscape from its range of historical conditions can provide a means for prioritizing and planning areas for restoration treatments. There are few statistics or indices that provide a quantitative context for measuring departure across landscapes. This study evaluated a set of five similarity indices commonly used in vegetation community ecology (Sorenson's Index, Chord Distance, Morisita's Index, Euclidean Distance, and Similarity Ratio) for application in estimating landscape departure (where departure = 1 - similarity). This involved comparing composition (vegetation type by area) of a set of reference landscapes to the compositions of 1,000 simulated historical landscapes. Stochastic simulation modeling was used to create a diverse set of synthetic reference and historical landscapes for departure index evaluation. Five reference landscapes were created to represent various degrees of expected departure from historical conditions. Both reference and historical landscapes were created to contain four important factors that could potentially influence departure calculation: (1) number of classes defining landscape composition, (2) dominance of the classes, (3) variability of area with the classes, and (4) temporal autocorrelation. We found that most evaluated indices are useful but not optimal for calculating departure. The Sorenson's Index appeared to perform the best with consistent and precise behavior across the ranges of the four treatments. The number of classes used to describe vegetation had the strongest influence on index performance; landscape composition defined by few classes had the least accurate, most imprecise, and most highly variable departure estimates. While results from this study show the utility of similarity indices in evaluating departure, it is also evident that a new set of statistics are needed to provide a more comprehensive analysis of departure for future applications.

Description :


Visible in the night sky the Argus Station, its twin smelting plants like glowing eyes, looks down on nightmare Earth. From Argus the Committee keep an oppressive control: citizens are watched by cams systems and political officers, it's a world inhabited by shepherds, reader guns, razor birds and the brutal Inspectorate with its white tiled cells and pain inducers. Soon the Committee will have the power to edit human minds, but not yet, twelve billion human beings need to die before Earth can be stabilized, but by turning large portions of Earth into concentration camps this is achievable, especially when the Argus satellite laser network comes fully online... This is the world Alan Saul wakes to in his crate on the conveyor to the Calais incinerator. How he got there he does not know, but he does remember the pain and the face of his interrogator. Informed by Janus, through the hardware implanted in his skull, about the world as it is now Saul is determined to destroy it, just as soon as he has found out who he was, and killed his interrogator...

Description :


The effect of various departure procedures of commercial jet transport aircraft on the noise produced on the ground under the departure path are presented. Noise data at four measurement stations under the flight path of Runway 13R at John F. Kennedy International Airport, New York, were obtained from 300 aircraft departures. Four different classes of departure procedures, including those specified by current airline operating practices, are compared with the noise produced by a random set of aircraft operations where the departure procedure was unspecified. Detailed radar observations of the aircraft flights, operational information reported by pilots flying specified procedures, and the measured noise data on all flights observed were used in evaluating the various departure procedures. The study shows that implementation of a proposed departure procedure could reduce the noise levels on the ground under jet transport takeoffs by as much as 8 PNdB as compared to the noise produced by existing procedures.
