Chapter 8: Thunderstorms, Mid-Latitude Cyclones and Hurricanes of the eBook Understanding Physical Geography. This eBook was written for students taking introductory Physical Geography taught at a college or university. For the chapters currently available on Google Play presentation slides (Powerpoint and Keynote format) and multiple choice test banks are available for Professors using my eBook in the classroom. Please contact me via email at [email protected] if you would like to have access to these resources. The various chapters of the Google Play version of Understanding Physical Geography are FREE for individual use in a non-classroom environment. This has been done to support life long learning. However, the content of Understanding Physical Geography is NOT FREE for use in college and university courses in countries that have a per capita GDP over $25,000 (US dollars) per year where more than three chapters are being used in the teaching of a course. More specifically, for university and college instructors using this work in such wealthier countries, in a credit-based course where a tuition fee is accessed, students should be instructed to purchase the paid version of this content on Google Play which is organized as one of six Parts (organized chapters). One exception to this request is a situation where a student is experiencing financial hardship. In this case, the student should use the individual chapters which are available from Google Play for free. The cost of these Parts works out to only $0.99 per chapter in USA dollars, a very small fee for my work. When the entire textbook (30 chapters) is finished its cost will be only $29.70 in USA dollars. This is far less expensive than similar textbooks from major academic publishing companies whose eBook are around $50.00 to $90.00. Further, revenue generated from the sale of this academic textbook will provide “the carrot” to entice me to continue working hard creating new and updated content. Thanks in advance to instructors and students who abide by these conditions.

Book Summary:

Severe thunderstorms and tornadoes affect communities across the U.S. every year, causing fatalities, destroying property and crops, and disrupting businesses. Tornadoes are the most destructive products of severe thunderstorms. Damages from violent tornadoes seem to be increasing, similar to the trend for other natural hazards in part due to changing population, demographics, and more weather-sensitive infrastructure and some analysts indicate that losses of $1 billion or more from single tornado events are becoming more frequent. Insurance industry analysts state that tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, and related weather events have caused nearly 57%, on average, of all insured catastrophe losses in the U.S. in any given year since 1953.

Book Summary:

Dies ist ein Tatsachenbuch über den Warschauer Aufstand, erstmals 1954 beim Verlag Das Neue Berlin erschienen. Es schildert Dinge, wie sie waren; es verschweigt nichts. Wolfgang Schreyer schrieb nach gründlichem Materialstudium diesen packenden Bericht eines von den Engländern geplanten militärischen Großunternehmens, über das jahrelang fast nichts bekannt geworden ist. Wir erleben das Schicksal einer deutschen Flakbatterie, verfolgen den Weg einer kleinen Gruppe britisch-amerikanischer Fallschirmspringer und das Ringen polnischer Untergrundkämpfer. Der Autor enthüllt die Methoden internationaler Spionagedienste, zeigt Generale, Konzerndirektoren und Diplomaten bei der Arbeit, schildert Verhandlungen in Moskau ebenso wie Operationen der Roten Armee. Durch das ganze Buch weht der heiße Atem einer pausenlosen dramatischen Handlung. In der prallen Fülle ihrer Gestalten und Schicksale ersteht noch einmal eine Welt des Aufstiegs und des Untergangs.

Book Summary:

These Proceedings are published to give a full account of the Fifth International Conference on Atmospheric Electricity held in September 1974 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen in the Bavarian Alps in Germany. Traditionally, the Proceedings of these Conferences have served as reference books updating the textbooks and monographs on Atmospheric Electricity. As treated by these Conferences, Atmos pheric Electricity covers all aspects of this science, including the processes and problems which reach out into the Earth's environment as well as analogous processes on other planets and on the Moon. A history of these Conferences, an account of their purpose, and an outline of the scope and the preparation is to be found at the end of these Proceedings. There, also the Business Meetings of the involved organizations are mentioned. The Proceedings closely follow the original program and are accordingly organized into "Sessions". The papers printed in each "Session" in this book are the ones which were accepted for the sessions of the Conference with the same numbers and titles. Only the two "Special Sessions" have been given different numbers in the Proceedings, i.e. 2a and 10. In principle, all papers which were accepted by the Executive Panel either for full oral presentation or for printing in the Proceedings only, have in fact been included in these Proceedings, whether they were presented or not. In the latter case, a special note is made to explain the absence of a discussion.

Book Summary:

Narcoleptic Southie PI Mark Genevich returns in this sequel to The Little Sleep from the Bram Stoker Award–winning author of Survivor Song and The Cabin at the End of the World. Like most private eyes, Mark Genevich is something of a lone wolf. So group therapy isn’t a great fit. But his landlord/mother is convinced it will help his narcolepsy—ignoring the fact that his disorder is a physical condition. Truth is, he has the time. It’s been a year and a half since his last big case, or any case. It’s never a wise choice to go on a two-day bender with someone you meet in group therapy, but there’s something about Gus that intrigues Genevich. And when his new drinking buddy asks him to protect a female friend who’s being stalked, the PI finally has a case. Unfortunately, he’s about to sleepwalk right into a very real nightmare. Before long he’s a suspect in an arson investigation and running afoul of everyone from the cops to a litigious lawyer and a bouncer with anger management issues. Genevich must keep his wits about him—always a challenge for a detective prone to unexpected blackouts and hallucinations—to solve the crime and live to show up at his next therapy session. In Paul Tremblay’s follow-up to The Little Sleep, unreliable narrator Mark Genevich once again leads readers on a surreal and suspenseful wild ride through the mean streets of South Boston and his own dreamlike reality.

  • File Pdf: schumann-resonance-for-tyros.pdf

Book Summary:

Schumann resonance has been studied for more than half a century. The field became popular among researchers of the terrestrial environment using natural sources of electromagnetic radiation—lightning strokes, primarily—and now many Schumann observatories have been established around the world. A huge number of publications can be found in the literature, the most recent collection of which was presented in a special Schumann resonance section of the journal Radio Science in 2007. The massive publications, however, impede finding information about how to organize measurements and start observations of global electromagnetic resonance. Relevant information is scattered throughout many publications, which are not always available. The goal of this book is to collect all necessary data in a single edition in order to describe the demands of the necessary equipment and the field-site as well as the impact of industrial and natural interference, and to demonstrate typical results and obstacles often met in measurements. The authors not only provide representative results but also describe unusual radio signals in the extremely low-frequency (ELF) band and discuss signals in the adjacent frequency ranges.

Book Summary:

Three storybooks in one: Meet the lovable turtle who inspired the beloved Franklin and Friends TV show! Franklin in the Dark In the Franklin Classic Storybook that started it all, poor little Franklin has one of the most common childhood afflictions—he is afraid of the dark. This is particularly difficult for Franklin as he happens to be a turtle, and the darkness he fears is, of course, inside his own shell. Bravely, with shell in tow, he sets forth to seek help and in the course of his travels discovers a bird who is afraid of heights, a polar bear who is afraid of the cold, and even a hydrophobic duck. In the end, Franklin discovers that everybody, even his own mother, is afraid of something, and his response to what he has learned is guaranteed to draw a smile. Franklin Says I Love You In this Franklin Classic Storybook, our hero is a very lucky turtle. He has the best friends, the best little sister, the best goldfish, and, of course, the best mother. But when he discovers that his mother’s birthday is coming up, he can’t find the best present. After giving it some serious thought, Franklin decides to do everything for his mom. On the morning of her birthday he takes her breakfast in bed, makes a brooch, draws a picture, and cuts fresh flowers from the garden! And then Franklin gives his mom a great big hug and says, “I love you”—which is, of course, the best gift of all. Franklin and the Thunderstorm In this Franklin Classic Storybook, Franklin is afraid of thunderstorms. When a storm approaches while he is playing at Fox’s house, a flash of lightning sends Franklin into his shell. He refuses to come out—even for snacks—until his friends make him laugh with their tall tales about what causes storms. And when Beaver explains what really causes thunder and lightning, Franklin begins to feel much safer.

Mr. Gillie is the cat that my son adopted from a shelter. He had been stray cat that was picked up in the streets, and they put him up for adoption. Christopher didn’t want a kitten but an older cat, and Mr. Gillie chose him by climbing onto his lap at the shelter. He settled down and had a dreamy look as if he was seeing butterflies. When Mr. Gillie came to Gramma’s house, he would run out the back door to the backyard where there were butterfly bushes and lots of butterflies. He always fell asleep under the bushes, where there was lots of shade. The butterflies were never scared of him, even landing on him. All his friends are the little animals that visit the backyard. Mr. Gillie was a character and played and loved everybody to the fullest. He had since gone to butterfly heaven, but his memories and stories will live on. Thanks again to my son, Christopher, for adopting such a wonderful cat.

Book Summary:

Why would highly skilled, well-trained pilots make errors that lead to accidents when they had safely completed many thousands of previous flights? The majority of all aviation accidents are attributed primarily to human error, but this is often misinterpreted as evidence of lack of skill, vigilance, or conscientiousness of the pilots. The Limits of Expertise is a fresh look at the causes of pilot error and aviation accidents, arguing that accidents can be understood only in the context of how the overall aviation system operates. The authors analyzed in great depth the 19 major U.S. airline accidents from 1991-2000 in which the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) found crew error to be a causal factor. Each accident is reviewed in a separate chapter that examines events and crew actions and explores the cognitive processes in play at each step. The approach is guided by extensive evidence from cognitive psychology that human skill and error are opposite sides of the same coin. The book examines the ways in which competing task demands, ambiguity and organizational pressures interact with cognitive processes to make all experts vulnerable to characteristic forms of error. The final chapter identifies themes cutting across the accidents, discusses the role of chance, criticizes simplistic concepts of causality of accidents, and suggests ways to reduce vulnerability to these catastrophes. The authors' complementary experience allowed a unique approach to the study: accident investigation with the NTSB, cognitive psychology research both in the lab and in the field, enormous first-hand experience of piloting, and application of aviation psychology in both civil and military operations. This combination allowed the authors to examine and explain the domain-specific aspects of aviation operations and to extend advances in basic research in cognition to complex issues of human performance in the real world. Although The Limits of Expertise is directed to aviation operations, the implications are clear for understanding the decision processes, skilled performance and errors of professionals in many domains, including medicine.

Book Summary:

Thunderstorms are erupting inside Rosalies brain. When she is six years old, Rosalie has her first seizure and learns she has epilepsy. As she grows older, she tries to navigate a world made more difficult by her disability. Though sometimes its scary, she never gives up. With the help of her family and her seizure response dog, Rolex, Rosalie learns that she can help others and achieve her dreams. The topic of disability is underrepresented in childrens literature, epilepsy even more so. With colorful, evocative illustrations, this book is perfect for those who want to teach children about epilepsy, disability, service dogs, or empathy. At times happy, at times sad, but always triumphant, Rosalies true story is a tribute to how the power of love can help us all overcome the obstacles of life.

Book Summary:

We all ride the white line, whether on a bicycle or in daily life. To our left is the smooth pavement where traffic is heavy, speed is up, and people are in a hurry. To our right is the shoulder which, while safer and slower, is often littered with gravel, broken glass, and the occasional pothole. Most of us choose to ride a white line existence: in the flow of traffic but within easy reach of the cluttered shoulder. Along the way, we are affected by and also impact the pedestrians of life that we meet and interact with. With several long distance fund raising bicycle trips as a backdrop, Mick speaks to some of the positive values in life. Through the "pedestrians" he meets and the values they live out, Mick explores some of these values. Pedaling along the white line of life, while dangerous, is also rewarding. Certainly the pedestrians one meets are worth every revolution.
