F**k It. Послать все на… или Парадоксальный путь к успеху и процветанию
Только начните говорить «а&#xa0;пошло все на…», и&#xa0;эти слова, как&#xa0;современная магическая мантра, изменят всю вашу жизнь. Посылать все на… очень приятно. А&#xa0;перестать мучиться и&#xa0;наконец начать делать то, что&#xa0;хочется, наплевать на&#xa0;все, что&#xa0;говорят окружающие, и&#xa0;пойти своим собственным путем,&#xa0;– просто волшебное переживание.<br /><br />В&#xa0;этой провокационной, вдохновенной и&#xa0;полной юмора книге Джон Паркин ненавязчиво доказывает, что&#xa0;слова «а&#xa0;пошло все на…»&#xa0;– идеальное западное выражение восточных идей духовного освобождения, релаксации и&#xa0;обретения истинной свободы через понимание, что&#xa0;все сущее не&#xa...

Fabriquer le vivant ?
L’époque que nous vivons depuis la fin du XXe siècle est celle d’une profonde crise des fondements de la pensée. En sciences comme en politique, quelque chose s’est dérobé sous nos pieds. La fin de la représentation du « progrès », garant du bonheur à venir, a accouché en Occident de la domination sans partage de l’individualisme, qui mine désormais profon-dément le lien social. Et pourtant, les formidables avancées des sciences et des techniques entretiennent aussi paradoxalement la vieille croyance fondant l’idéologie du progrès : « Tout est possible ! »<br /> Comment faire face à cette sensation de chaos qui contribue à paralyser notre capacitéà agir, individuellement ...

Fabulous Science
The great biologist Louis Pasteur suppressed data that didn&#39;t support the case he was making. Albert Einstein&#39;s theory of general relativity was only &#39;confirmed&#39; in 1919 because an eminent British scientist massaged his figures. Joseph Lister&#39;s famously spotless hospital wards were actually notoriously dirty. Gregor Mendel, supposed father of the science of heredity, never grasped the fundamental principles of &#39;Mendelian&#39; genetics. Often startling, always<br/> enthralling, Fabulous Science reveals the truth behind these and many other myths in the history of science.

Facing Climate Change
<i>Facing Climate Change</i> explains why people refuse to accept evidence of a warming planet and shows how to move past partisanship to reach a consensus for action. A climate scientist and licensed psychotherapist, Jeffrey T. Kiehl examines the psychological phenomena that twist our relationship to the natural world and their role in shaping the cultural beliefs that distance us further from nature. He also accounts for the emotions triggered by the lived experience of climate change and the feelings of fear and loss they inspire, encouraging us to retreat into fantasy.<br><br>But all is not lost. By evaluating our way of being, Kiehl unleashes a potential human emotio...

Fact or Fiction 2
The editors of Scientific American’s best-selling eBook, &#34;Fact or Fiction: Science Tackles 58 Popular Myths,&#34; return with &#34;Fact or Fiction 2: 50 (More) Popular Myths Explained.&#34; In it, we cast an analytical eye on another collection of urban lore and cultural myths that persist so long in our collective consciousness they acquire a ring of truth. Who hasn’t heard the “5-second rule,” which insists that food dropped on the floor is safe to eat if it’s picked up within 5 seconds? How many of us have been told by well-meaning relatives or friends to “feed a cold, starve a fever?” Each article explores whether science can back up these and 48 other lon...

Factor X
As currently projected, global population growth will place increasing pressures on the environment and on Earth’s resources.&#xa0; Growth will be concentrated in developing countries, leading to leaps in demand for goods and services, and a paradox: although there are initiatives &#xa0;to decouple resource use and economic growth in mature economies, their effects could be more than offset by rapid economic growth in developing countries like China and India. Others will follow, claiming their equal right to material well- being. This will even more increase the challenge facing the industrialized countries to reduce their resource use.<br /><br />The editors of <i>Facto...

Factors Affecting the Removal of Ammonia from Air on Carbonaceous Materials
Air pollution related to the release of industrial toxic gases represents one of the main concerns of&#xa0;the modern world&#xa0;due to its detrimental effect on the environment. To tackle this growing issue, efficient ways to reduce/control the release of pollutants are required. Adsorption of gases on porous materials appears as&#xa0;one potential solution. However, the physisorption of small molecules of gases such as ammonia is limited at ambient conditions. For their removal, adsorbents providing strong adsorption forces must be developed.&#xa0;<br /><br />In this study, new carbon-based materials are prepared and tested for ammonia adsorption at ambient conditions. ...

Failure
The general public has a glorified view of the pursuit of scientific research. However, the idealized perception of science as a rule-based, methodical system for accumulating facts could not be further from the truth. Modern science involves the idiosyncratic, often bumbling search for understanding in uncharted territories, full of wrong turns, false findings, and the occasional remarkable success. In his sequel to Ignorance (Oxford University Press, 2012), Stuart Firestein shows us that the scientific enterprise is riddled with mistakes and errors - and that this is a good thing! Failure: Why Science Is So Successful delves into the origins of scientific research as a...

Faint Echoes, Distant Stars
Our neighboring planets may have the answer to this question. Scientists have already identified ice caps on Mars and what appear to be enormous oceans underneath the ice of Jupiter's moons. The atmosphere on Venus appeared harsh and insupportable of life, composed of a toxic atmosphere and oceans of acid -- until scientists concluded that Earth's atmosphere was eerily similar billions of years ago.<br /><br />An extraterrestrial colony, in some form, may already exist, just awaiting discovery.<br /><br />But the greatest impediment to such an important scientific discovery may not be technological, but political. No scientific endeavor can be launched without a budget, a...
