This illuminating new volume will tell the stories of the people living in different coffee-producing communities around the world, through McCurry's beautifully arresting, colour photography. From the foothills of the Andes to the slopes of Kilimanjaro, vibrant full-colour images document the realities of life for the people working at the source of this familiar commodity. Far-ranging photographs from Colombia, Honduras, Peru, Brazil, Ethiopia, Tanzania, India and Vietnam include portraits of children, workers and everyday community life, alongside stunning natural landscapes.
Based on the award winning Wiley Encyclopedia of Chemical Biology, this book provides a general overview of the unique features of the small molecules referred to as «natural products», explores how this traditionally organic chemistry-based field was transformed by insights from genetics and biochemistry, and highlights some promising future directions. The book begins by introducing natural products from different origins, moves on to presenting and discussing biosynthesis of various classes of natural products, and then looks at natural products as models and the possibilities of using them in medicine.

Planetary science of the Solar System to date retains a number of the obscurities and puzzles on the properties and the origins of its some objects. Author's findings on this point are the essence of this brief book. It constitutes collected recent manuscripts of author as well as some appropriate fragments of his previous book "Numerical harmony in the Solar System" published at Russia in 2009. In Part I both known from arXiv.org and fully new his works collected. Part II contains some brief sections of his foregoing book. Appendixes 1 and 2 include the previously unknown harmonic relation of the Sun to other stars and author's planetary classification of the Solar System in terms of the defunct planets. From highly specialized astronomy books that differs in the width of coverage of involved problems. In context of a harmonic associations author look at various issues relevant to the past and present of planetary objects of the Solar System such as terrestrial and giant planets, their satellites, some the main belt asteroids, the largest trans-neptunian objects (dwarf planets) as well as Chelyabinsk meteor. In so doing contrary to similar books there is discussed such more clear to general astronomical public and students the physical properties of the families of the objects of the Solar System as their sizes, mass and density, than, for example, the details of the surface, atmosphere or photometry data of any one of them. As opposed to usual illustrated present popular astronomy books in this one in first much new simple mathematical relationships and numerical data relevant to such physical properties of the present and past objects of the Solar System in connection to their orbital characteristics are included. The book basically is intended for the students, educators, and specialists m astronomy and especially in planetary science but as well is accessible to any who interested in the Solar System and is aware of elementary algebra and who would like to obtain a new information and some ideas on the past and the present of the celestial objects of the Solar System that differ in significant ways from commonly accepted views on these points.
The graphic novel cycle of Life and Death comes to a conclusion, intersecting with the previous Fire and Stone story cycle to create a massive tale of humanity's confrontation with the galaxy's three greatest terrors! Three women face three extraterrestrial terrors! -Captain Paget must forge an alliance with the bloodthirsty Predators to aid her Colonial Marines against a gathering horde of Aliens. But what if the enemy of her enemy is also her enemy? -Chris has an embryonic Alien Queen growing inside her. She knows this day must end in her death, but is there a way her demise can save her friends? -Angela leads a party trapped aboard a spacecraft controlled by one of the enigmatic, god-like Engineers. The ship is headed for Earth--for home--but arriving there may doom humanity.
The book focuses on geological history as the critical factor in determining the present biodiversity and landscapes of Amazonia. The different driving mechanisms for landscape evolution are explored by reviewing the history of the Amazonian Craton, the associated sedimentary basins, and the role of mountain uplift and climate change. This book provdes an insight into the Meso- and Cenozoic record of Amazonia that was characterized by fluvial and long-lived lake systems and a highly diverse flora and fauna. This fauna includes giants such as the ca. 12 m long caiman Purussaurus, but also a varied fish fauna and fragile molluscs, whilst fossil pollen and spores form relics of ancestral swamps and rainforests. Finally, a review the molecular datasets of the modern Amazonian rainforest and aquatic ecosystem, discussing the possible relations between the origin of Amazonian species diversity and the palaeogeographic, palaeoclimatic and palaeoenvironmental evolution of northern South America. The multidisciplinary approach in evaluating the history of Amazonia has resulted in a comprehensive volume that provides novel insights into the evolution of this region.
This article raises the problem of equity in the health system in Switzerland. Three dimensions of the concept of equity are taken into consideration: the inequality in the financing of the health system, the inequality in the distribution of the state of good health, and, finally, the iniquity in the access to health care. Some methodological developments are presented as well as the results. In conclusion we observe that the state of good health does not depend strongly on income but that it exists some iniquity in the access to health services from specialists and that the income inequality is increasing due to the financing of the health system.
Thomas Love Peacock (1785-1866) was an English novelist, poet, and official of the East India Company. In "Crotchet Castle" he did no less for the political economists, pitting his gifts of exaggeration and ridicule against scientific progress and March of Mind.

The present study analyzes the stability of the demand for money function in India over the period 1991:M4–2014:M9 using co-integration and Vector Error Correction Mechanism (VECM ) framework. From analysis, it has been observed that there exists a stable demand for money function in India during the post-reforms period, i. e. a long-run relationship does exist between demand for real balances, national output (Yt ), rate of interest (Rt) and exchange rate (ERt). Two variables Yt and ERt have been observed to be affecting demand for real balances positively, while the observed effect of M2 is negative. Thus, the signs and magnitudes of all three regressors have been observed according to a-priori information without any paradoxical situation.
