Beyond the Sacred Forest
Reflecting new thinking about conservation in Southeast Asia, <i>Beyond the Sacred Forest</i> is the product of a unique, decade-long, interdisciplinary collaboration involving research in Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines. Scholars from these countries and the United States rethink the translation of environmental concepts between East and West, particularly ideas of <i>nature</i> and <i>culture</i>; the meaning of <i>conservation</i>; and the ways that conservation policy is applied and transformed in the everyday landscapes of Southeast Asia. The contributors focus more on folk, community, and vernacular conservation discourses than on those of formal institutio...

Beyond the World of Relativity to the World of Invariance
James Clerk Maxwell turned the scientific world upside down in the late nineteenth century with his theory of electromagnetism, which predicted that an electromagnetic wave would propagate in vacuum with a constant speed. <br /><br />His prediction was at odds with classical mechanics, and some scientists devised new ideas to reconcile the discrepancy. One of them was Albert Einstein, who proposed the theory of relativity in the early twentieth century, which became a pillar of science.<br /><br />The equation E = mc2 sparked a revolution of perspective—resulting in the perspective of absolute time and space that had prevailed in Newtonian mechanics being displaced by the...

Beyond Words
Carl Safina advocates that animals think and feel much like people do – because, after all, people are animals. Animals have inner lives but how does that call into question what really makes us human, how can it change our relationship with the natural world? Beyond Words is a landmark book that challenges the boundary between humans and nonhumans. Weaving together up-to-date scientific discoveries into consciousness with intimate observation of free-living animals, from herds of elephant in Kenya to a wolf pack in Yellowstone National Park and schools of killer whales in the Pacific, Carl Safina takes the reader into their lives and minds. In understanding that animals...

Bhrigu Sutras
The original book BHRIGU SUTRAS, which I am translating has no introduction whatsoever and hence, I am unable to say anything about the author thereof. It gives valuable hints and aids, in delineating the character & fortunes of a native , in various walks of life. What is popularly known as Bhava Phala (effects of the 12 houses) in standard texts, is dealt with a direct touch, and with particular reference, to the planets stationed in various houses, the aspects they receive and the fact, that a planet is in exaltation, own or enemy house. Even a cursory perusal of the book, would convince even a professional astrologer, that this book can enable astrologers, to predict ...

Biciosos
<b>Una mirada a cómo las bicicletas están cambiando las ciudades y a sus habitantes.</b><br /><br />Este libro trata de por qué vamos en bici todos los que lo hacemos, que somos muchos. Y también de por qué debería ir aún más gente. Porque no solo no pasa nada grave por ir sobre el sillín de un sitio a otro, sino que pasan bastantes cosas agradables. Aunque nos cueste admitirlo desde lo alto de nuestro progreso.<br /><br />Las sociedades occidentales están en un proceso de cambio con consecuencias de todo tipo. Algunas de ellas hasta positivas, aunque parezca difícil de creer echando un vistazo a la actualidad. Los cambios en materia de movilidad, por ejemplo, no so...

Big bang eller varde ljus?
En kreationist anser sig ha vetenskapliga bevis på att Bibelns skapelseberättelse är ordagrant sann. Att jorden skapades för ungefär 6&#xa0;000 år sedan och att allt liv på jorden är skapat av Gud. Här granskar Maria Gunther Axelsson vad medlemmarna av denna globalt växande rörelse egentligen tror och vad de har för agenda, både politiskt och religiöst. Kritiskt prövar hon alla de så kallade vetenskapliga bevis som kreationister världen över använder sig av när de hävdar att deras teori är lika hållbar som evolutionsteorin.<br />Dessutom presenteras det som naturvetenskapen hittills har kommit fram till om universums uppkomst och utveckling: Hur kan forskarna veta att uni...

Big Bang Theory: A Beginner’s Guide
The Opponents of the Big Bang Theory (Christians) believe that it takes more faith to believe in the idea of a Big Bang than it does to believe in the existence of a Supreme Being who created the universe Ex nihilo (out of nothing).&#xa0; In other words, the Big Bang Theory is really covering for the one who he alone can create a Big Bang, God the Supreme Being. &#xa0;<br><br> Christians believe that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth according to the book of Genesis.&#xa0; This same God, called the firmaments and all that is into being.&#xa0; By His spoken words, he said let there be and there was.&#xa0; Furthermore, apart from this Omnipotent Being, ...

Big Data
Is the Brexit vote successful big data politics or the end of democracy? Why do airlines overbook, and why do banks get it wrong so often? How does big data enable Netflix to forecast a hit, CERN to find the Higgs boson and medics to discover if red wine really is good for you? And how are companies using big data to benefit from smart meters, use advertising that spies on you and develop the gig economy, where workers are managed by the whim of an algorithm?<br /> The volumes of data we now access can give unparalleled abilities to make predictions, respond to customer demand and solve problems. But Big Brother’s shadow hovers over it. Though big data can set us free and...
