Instead of the boring, real reason she is wearing an eye patch and glasses, Becca gives her friends at school an imaginative, wild explanation for her new fashion accessory.
"In its heyday, the oilsands represented an industrial triumph and the culmination of a century of innovation, experiment, engineering, policy, and finance. Fort McMurray was a boomtown, the centre of a new gold rush, and the oilsands were reshaping the global energy, political, and financial landscapes. The future seemed limitless for the city and those who drew their wealth from the bitumen-rich wilderness. But in 2008, a new narrative for the oilsands emerged. As financial markets collapsed and the scientific reality of the Patch's effect on the environment became clear, the region turned into a boogeyman and a lightning rod for the global movement combatting climate change. Suddenly, the streets of Fort McMurray were the front line of a high-stakes collision between two conflicting worldviews--one of industrial triumph and another of environmental stewardship--each backed by major players on the world stage. The Patch is the seminal account of this ongoing conflict, showing just how far the oilsands reaches into all of our lives. From Fort Mac to the Bakken shale country of North Dakota, from Houston to London, from Saudi Arabia to the shores of Brazil, the whole world is connected in this enterprise. And it requires us to ask the question: In order to both fuel the world and to save it, what do we do about the Patch?"--
Designed to project population of territorial terrestrial vertebrate species through time. Useful for investigations involving wildlife species that are mobile habitat specialists, pays careful attention to habitat pattern and quality. PATCH can accommodate a broad range of analyses, and is useful for both theoretical and applied investigations.
At first upset about having to wear glasses and an eye patch to correct her lazy eye, five-year-old Becca soon discovers that her new accessories allow her to take on such roles as a ballerina-pirate and a private eye.
A comprehensive security patch management process is one of the fundamental security requirements for any IT-dependent organization. Fully defining this process ensures that patches are deployed in an organized, staged manner, resulting in little or no slowdowns or downtime to network infrastructure. Until now, there were no technical books for com
Growing your own fruit and vegetables is surprisingly easy whatever the size of your garden or allotment. You don't need to be entirely self-sufficient but there's nothing more satisfying than being able to harvest your own tomatoes snip a few leaves from a salad bed or make strawberry jam from home-grown strawberries. And by planting some easy-to-grow flowering plants it's perfectly possible to have freshly picked cut flowers to decorate your table. Accompanying the BBC2 series Grow Make Eat celebrates our burgeoning interest in knowing where our food comes from and is a practical guide to making your garden a haven of productivity. With essential know-how on everything from soil and compost to pruning and pests the book is aimed at novice gardens. There's an A-Z section on easy-to-grow vegetables fruit herbs and cut flowers; foolproof recipes for transforming your produce into delicious jams jellies chutneys and cordials; and stunningly simple flower arrangements.
An introspective post-apocalyptic novel where the survivors, some of whom have gained strange new abilities, struggle to find a sense of purpose in the sterile wasteland.
The patch test (epicutaneous test) and photo patch test are used to clarify the etiology and diagnosis of allergic as well as light-potentiated contact der matitis. The patch test must be correlated with historic data and physical ex amination. Contact dermatitis constitutes a significant proportion (5%-15%) of the dis eases at dermatologic clinics. If the results are to be reliable, patch tests should be performed properly and the technique should not be varied in an arbitrary manner. The examiner should adhere strictly to the standard procedure so as to understand its possibilities and its limitations. Interpretation of the actual patch test reactions places high demands on the experience and skill of the examiner and on his knowledge of chemistry and pharmacology. This monograph is concerned only with the patch test method used to demonstrate the existence of contact allergy and light-potentiated contact allergy. It does not describe the "prophetic patch test" ("predictive patch test"), which is used to demonstrate the sensitizing capacity of a substance. The terminology in the text is that recommended by the International Con tact Dermatitis Research Group. (In this book dermatitis = eczema.) 1.2 Historic Development Joseph Jadassohn devised the epicutaneous test. In 1895 he tested a syphilitic patient who developed a cutaneous eruption after treatment with mercury ointment.
Patch-Clamp Analysis: Advanced Techniques describes in reproducible detail all applications that involve patch pipet. Beginning with updated basic patch-clamp techniques, the book presents the newest developments, ranging from fast external solution switching and the switching of the pipet solution during recording, to the loose patch, the perforated patch, and the patch cram detection technique. The advanced techniques covered combine molecular biology and imaging to produce the patch pipet with RT-PCR and fluorometric techniques.
Although the patch management process is neither exceedingly technical nor extremely complicated, it is still perceived as a complex issue that's often left to the last minute or resolved with products that automate the task. Effective patch management is not about technology; it's about having a formal process in place that can deploy patches to v
This useful tool provides the reader with a current overview of where microstrip patch antenna technology is at, and useful information on how to design this form of radiator for their given application and scenario. Practical design cases are provided for each goal.
Natalie and Chris are a young and happy couple who thought that life of joy is upon them. Sudden outbreak of the Great Depression ruins their plans... In the time of despair Natalie's faith and Chris' dedication will push them trough and prove that with pure love all adversity can be overcome. Grace Livingston Hill was an early 20th-century novelist and wrote both under her real name and the pseudonym Marcia Macdonald. She wrote over 100 novels and numerous short stories and her characters are most often young female Christian women or those who become so within the confines of the story. Hill's messages are simple in nature: good versus evil. As Hill believed that the Bible was very clear about what was good and evil in life and had firm faith God's ability to restore everything, the same belief was also reflected in her own works. Even today Hill's novels are widely read and appreciated for their romance and their inspiring life lessons.
Microstrip patch antennas have become the favorite of antenna designers because of its versatility and advantages of planar profile, ease of fabrication, compatibility with integrated circuit technology, and conformability with a shaped surface. As there is currently an urgent need for graduate students and practicing engineers to gain an in-depth understanding of this subject, this book was written with this purpose in mind. The authors are IEEE Fellows who have made significant contributions to their fields of expertise. Professor K F Lee was the recipient of the 2009 John Kraus Antenna Award of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society.
Explains the significance of the mission patches worn on the spacesuits of astronauts, discusses how they are designed, and describes the patches for individual space missions.
