This textbook covers the theoretical, fundamental aspects of naval architecture for students preparing for the Class 2 and Class 1 Marine Engineer Officer exams. It introduces the basic foundation themes within naval architecture, (hydrostatics, stability, resistance and powering), using worked examples to show how solutions should be presented for an exam. The topics are ordered in a manner of a typical taught module, to aid the use of the book by lecturers as a compliment to a course. Importantly, this updated edition contains updated text and figures in line with modern practice, including an update of many of the figures to three-dimensional diagrams, and a new section on computer software for naval architecture. The book also includes sample examination questions with worked examples answers to aid students in their learning.

The Best of BB
Author: B B
"The best of BB brings together in one volume some of the best writing and illustration by Denys Watkins-Pitchford - better known as BB. This edition has a larger typeface and improved layout from the original which was published to celebrate BB's eightieth birthday in 1985. This beautiful anthology contains extracts from all his books for adults, and few short extracts from this timeless children's books as well. From stories of wild-fowling in the far north of Scotland to night fishing for carp in dark Midland pools, from his famous books about the white goose, Manka the Sky Gipsy, to the Little Grey Men (winner of the Carnegie Medal) there is something here for everyone who loves the British countryside and its wildlife."

Synthetic Analgesics, Part I: Diphenylpropylamines deals with the methods of synthesis, the physical and chemical properties, and the ""analgesic"" activity of diphenylpropylamines. Topics covered include the ""analgesic"" activity of methadone, morphine, pethidine, and codeine in animals; diamines and derivatives; R875 and related basic tertiary amides; esters derived from amino acids and secondary and tertiary alcohols; and ketimines, acyl ketimines, and ketones. This book is comprised of 21 chapters and begins with a brief background on the first chemical and pharmacological experiments on diphenylpropylamines, followed by a discussion on ""analgesic"" activity in humans and animals. The ""analgesic"" activity of methadone, morphine, pethidine, and codeine in animals is considered. The following chapters explore a variety of compounds such as 3:3-diphenylpropylamines, tertiary alcohols, secondary alcohols, primary alcohols, nitriles, diamines and derivatives, primary and secondary amides, acids and acid chlorides, and aldehydes. Sulfones, dissociation constants, and configurational studies are also described. This monograph will be a useful resource for researchers and practitioners in the fields of organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, and pharmacology.

It's the boldest conquest of our time—the colonization of Mars. Of the thousands who clamored for a one-way ticket to the Red Planet, only a fraction remain in the running. Now they're converging on Hawaii’s Big Island for a nail-biting competition to be the first to launch. Mila Todorov has prepared for this moment throughout her young life. With her revolutionary propulsion design already built into the Mars vessel, she likes her chances—especially if she can team with her all-time idol, Major Jancey Beaumont, a former NASA astronaut whose last space mission made her a worldwide hero. Jancey is desperate for a return to space, but the margin for error is razor-thin. Can she afford to gamble her destiny on a woman so distracting as Mila? Lambda Literary Award Winner – KG MacGregor
Speaking the Earth’s Languages brings together for the first time critical discussions of postcolonial poetics from Australia and Chile. The book crosses multiple Languages, landscapes, and disciplines, and draws on a wide range of both oral and written poetries, in order to make strong claims about the importance of ‘a nomad poetics’ – not only for understanding Aboriginal or Mapuche writing practices but, more widely, for the problems confronting contemporary literature and politics in colonized landscapes. The book begins by critiquing canonical examples of non-indigenous postcolonial poetics. Incisive re-readings of two icons of Australian and Chilean poetry, Judith Wright (1915–2000) and Pablo Neruda (1904–1973), provide rich insights into non-indigenous responses to colonization in the wake of modernity. The second half of the book establishes compositional links between Aboriginal and Mapuche poetics, and between such oral and written poetics more generally. The book’s final part develops an ‘emerging synthesis’ of contemporary Aboriginal and Mapuche poetics, with reference to the work of two of the most important avant-garde Aboriginal and Mapuche poets of recent times, Lionel Fogarty (1958–) and Paulo Huirimilla (1973–). Speaking the Earth’s Languages uses these fascinating links between Aboriginal and Mapuche poetics as the basis of a deliberately nomadic, open-ended theory for an Australian–Chilean postcolonial poetics. “The central argument of this book,” the author writes, “is that a nomadic poetics is essential for a genuinely postcolonial form of habitation, or a habitation of colonized landscapes that doesn’t continue to replicate colonialist ideologies involving indigenous dispossession and environmental exploitation.”
