T. Rex and the Crater of Doom
Sixty-five million years ago, a comet or asteroid larger than Mt. Everest slammed into the Earth, causing an explosion equivalent to the detonation of a hundred million hydrogen bombs. Vaporized impactor and debris from the impact site were blasted out through the atmosphere, falling back to Earth all around the globe. Terrible environmental disasters ensued, including a giant tsunami, continent-scale wildfires, darkness, and cold, followed by sweltering greenhouse heat. When conditions returned to normal, half the genera of plants and animals on Earth had perished.This horrific story is now widely accepted as the solution to a great scientific murder mystery what caused ...

T.rex superstar
S'il ne doit en rester qu'un, ce sera sans doute lui. A la question quel dinosaure connaissez-vous, 90% des gens répondent : le tyrannosaure ! De quoi déprimer les paléontologues qui ont décrit les quelque mille autres espèces de dinosaures... Mais pas Jean Le Loeuff qui, d'une plume érudite et irrésistiblement drôle, dresse le portrait de cet archétype du grand prédateur qu'est Tyrannosaurus, à la lumière des découvertes scientifiques les plus récentes. Vous saurez enfin si le « roi des lézards tyrans » avait des plumes, à quoi pouvaient bien lui servir ses bras minuscules et à quelle vitesse il vous aurait fallu courir voici 68 millions d'années pour lui échapper.

Tackling Fossil Fuel Subsidies and Climate Change
This report presents research on fossil fuel subsidy reform across 20 countries and reveals an average reduction in national GHG emissions of 11% by 2020 from potential reform, and savings of USD 93 per tonne of CO2. With modest recycling of resources to renewables and energy efficiency, reductions can be improved. Countries are including reforms in contributions towards a climate agreement. Authored by the Global Subsidies Initiative as part of the Nordic Prime Ministers' green growth initiative www.norden.org/greengrowth

Tactical Management of Urban Warfare Casualties In Special Operations
In the wake of the Battle of the Black Sea (Mogadishu, Somalia, 1993) the United States Military Special Operations community was reeling with several hard-learned lessons. One of which was the gaping holes in Special Operations medical protocol - holes which had, quite possibly, lead to the deaths of US servicemen in Mogadishu. Everyone agreed that the model needed to be updated, and a protocol of care unique to the tactical environment be developed. This book details a 1998 panel discussion between leading minds in Battlefield and Tactical Medicine, discussing scenarios, failures of past protocol and doctrine and suggesting new guidelines and protocols unique to the en...

Tadeusz Rydzyk. Kapłan czy biznesmen
Bez dwóch zdań należy zauważyć, że Tadeusz Rydzyk idzie z&#xa0;postępem czasu, jest człowiekiem XXI&#xa0;wieku – politykiem i&#xa0;ekonomistą, mistrzem w&#xa0;kierowaniu ludźmi i… ich portfelami. Postać redemptorysty ojca Tadeusza Rydzyka jest wielce kontrowersyjną, ale zarazem ciekawą pod względem badawczym. Człowiek ten jawi się jako wielki reformator, który wymknął się władzy samego Kościoła, i stanowi ewenement na skalę polską, a&#xa0;nawet&#xa0;światową. Niniejsza książka opisuje genezę i&#xa0;rozwój imperium medialnego, a&#xa0;także inicjatywy polityczne Ojca Dyrektora oraz&#xa0;wszelkie oficjalnie znane metody oddziaływania redemptorysty na pol...

Tajemnice Haremów
Harem był w każdym muzułmańskim domu, lecz jeden z nich — harem padyszacha w pałacu Topkapy — wywoływał najwięcej emocji. Pełna przepychu, wręcz baśniowego bogactwa, a zarazem okrutnie wyrafinowana rzeczywistość przez wieki podniecała wyobraźnię nie tylko Europejczyków. Najpiękniejsze dziewczęta, ich okaleczeni strażnicy-eunuchowie i jeden zdrowy mężczyzna — pan ich życia i śmierci, a zarazem władca potężnego imperium, żyli, podporządkowani okrutnym nieraz regułom namiętności i zbrodni. Zapraszamy do fascynującej podróży po świecie haremów, a przede wszystkim po owianym legendami słynnym haremie władców Imperium Osmańskiego, w którym nie brakowało...

Take Me to the Source
Colourless, tasteless, odourless, ageless: water is both the simplest thing on earth and the most complex. We cannot live without it yet it kills six thousand children a day. It is the ultimate renewable resource but we pollute it without thinking twice. Why, if water is so valuable does nobody want to pay for it unless it comes in a designer bottle? Is it really the oil of the twenty-first century? Will we all soon be fighting over it, or can it lead countries into co-operation rather than conflict? <br /><br />In this enthralling voyage of discovery, Rupert Wright sets out to discover exactly what water is and why it plays such an important role in history, culture, art...

Taking Sustainable Cities Seriously
Today at least twenty-five major U.S. cities have pursued some form of sustainability initiative. Although many case studies and "how-to" manuals have been published, there has been little systematic comparison of these cities' programs and initiatives. In this book Kent Portney lays the theoretical groundwork for research on what works and what does not, and why. Distinguishing cities on the basis of population characteristics and region for his analysis, Portney shows how cities use the broad rubric of sustainability to achieve particular political ends. Cities that take sustainability seriously, such as Portland, San Francisco, and Seattle, use broad definitions that g...

Taking the Quantum Leap
This book entertainingly traces the history of physics from the observations of the earlyGreeks through the discoveries of Galileo and Newton to the dazzling theories of such scientists as Planck, Einstein, Bohr, and Bohm. This humanized view of science opens up the mind-stretching visions of how quantum mechanics, God, human thought, and will are related, and provides profound implications for our understanding of the nature of reality and our relationship to the cosmos.

TAL OG ALGEBRA med historisk tilgang
<br/> Der har efterhånden udviklet sig en tradition for, at lærebøger i matematik indfletter lidt spredte bemærkninger af matematikhistorisk karakter, specielt om fremtrædende matematikere. Andre matematikbøger er rent historiske. I relation hertil udgør de tre bøger i serien TAL OG ALGEBRA med historisk tilgang en nyskabelse: Tallenes og algebraens historiske udvikling behandles sammenhængende, ikke for denne udviklings egen skyld, men med henblik på at give læseren indsigt i specielt algebraens idégrundlag på en helt anden måde, end det er muligt ved en »tidløs fremstilling«.<br/> <br/> Forfatteren har ved udarbejdelsen af serien først og fremmest haft uddannelsen af fo...

Tales from a Small World
&#34;Tales From A Small World&#34; is a collection of articles originally published on the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics Protein Spotlight site, enriched with poems by the delightfully unconventional Dublin poet, Pat Ingoldsby. Each article tells the story of a given protein - of which there are hundreds of thousands - from what it does in our body, how it does it, who discovered it, to how such information can help save lives. Here, barely a hundred proteins are described. But they give you a fair idea of the scope of activities performed by such tiny entities. You will find out why little girls are girls, and little boys are boys. Why a lobster changes colour ...

Tales From The Underground
There are over one billion organisms in a pinch of soil, and many of them perform functions essential to all life on the planet. Yet we know much more about deep space than about the universe below. In Tales from the Underground, Cornell ecologist David W. Wolfe lifts the veil on this hidden world, revealing for the first time what makes subterranean life so unique and so precious. Home to miniscule water bears and microscopic bacteria, mole rats and burrowing owls, the underground reigns supreme as it produces important pharmaceuticals, recycles life's essential elements, and helps plants gather nutrients. An original, awe-inspiring journey through a strange realm, Tales...

Tales Of Time's Eternal Memory
While watching our surroundings slowly rust and decay, we often get the impression that our world is here for only a day, a temporary atomic "carbon copy" of a magician's dream. However, we also notice the continuous recycling of these same atomic particles as they are redeposited upon a mysterious invisible 3D film, as if a magnet assembling iron filings or as freezing water, morphing into an icy doily upon a window. What is it that underlies this game of life? Where hides the hidden structure that magically yields an often predictable, yet different tomorrow, and what and where is the programming language? Whatever it is, we are certainly immersed within it, for where e...
