This authored book presents basic immunological tenets and mechanisms at the cellular and molecular level while employing the toxicology focus on hazard identification, appropriate assays, dose response, and risk assesment by mathematical models and safety factors. It will be a useful reference to toxicologists because it will incorporate new guidelines that the EPA is bringing out later this year for all chemicals regulated under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act and the Toxic Substances Control Act. Regulatory sections in each chapter focus on data from both the US Food and Drug Administration, as well as data applicable to western European Nations.
Princess-in-exile, Aja Bokinan, is the Thousand Year Empress. While her family has remained in forced isolation for nearly thirty years, women throughout the empire have been banned from public life. Females have no legal standing and they have become little better than property. The restoration of the monarchy is their only hope. Revolution threatens the male dominated Coalition. Resistance forces expect the Princess to be the salvation of the empire. The ruling generals fear she will be its destruction.Kyr Aram, is a smuggler and secret Resistance sympathizer. He must find a way to protect the Princess from both the general who plans her assassination and a traitor on his own ship who wishes to see her dead. Kyr believes she is no more than valuable cargo. With the Thousand Year Empress, he gets more than he bargained for.The Lady Ennat, has been sent by her mother to Resistance Commander, Karna Aram for protection. She is a Blood decoy. Her role is to protect her sister Aja, the Thousand Year Empress. She must draw the bulk of the Coalition forces away from the Resistance fighters. From the beginning she’s known she may not live to see tomorrow, yet despite her misgivings she finds herself drawn to Commander Aram.Karna Aram wanted the woman from the moment she set foot on his supply depot, but nobody touches a Princess of the Blood. He resists his bone deep desire until Ennat challenges him to pick up a sword and spar with her. All bets are off. Karna has a different kind of sword play in mind.When the Ennat and her sister, Aja, are reunited, they know the Coalition is coming after them. They must risk all to save their devoted fighters and the men they love.A thousand years have passed since the Empress Aja Bokinan and her consort Kyr Aram settled on Calen. As the legend foretold, a great evil has arisen. Black Frocks scour the planets, searching out women, children and even men with a trace of the Royal Blood, sacrificing them to their dark god.When they see her mahogany hair and gray eyes, Issa Bokinan’s family flees the village for the safety of the mountains, but even that is not far enough. It is up to The Red Demon, Tem, to hide the young Empress away in the past, teaching her to use her powers, grooming her for the day when she will face the Black Frocks and her own death.But the Red Demon has a plan within a plan. She’s meddled in the gene pool, producing a man with powers Women of the Blood only dream of. She wants Kane Tirol for her own, but Kane, a Calen man, wants nothing to do with the Red Demon. He is bonded to Issa Bokinan, and not even time can keep them apart.There is a reason Tem is called the Red Demon. She does what she wants when she wants. No one controls her. Time and space do not hinder her. Worshipped on ancient Earth as a goddess among many people in many different lands, nobody opposes her, except her creations, Issa Bokinan and Kane Tirol.Having left her own daughters behind on Earth as seed stock for future generations, Tem had hoped to make a life with Kane. That is not to be. Rejected, alone and broken, she seeks comfort in the past with the Empress Ya, on Persephone, promising to behave and keep her identity a secret. Tem is hard pressed to control her worst impulses when she’s caught riding the Empress’ prize stallion.Horse Master, Aytan Kirrae, cannot believe his eyes. A small Red Woman has just ridden off on the stallion named for him, a horse bred for the Empress Ya. He waits for her return, flipping her over his knee, meting out what he thinks will be a kinder punishment than she would receive from the Magistrate. He has no idea the small Red Woman can kill him with a single drop of her blood.Pulled along to the future against his will, Aytan thinks he’s dreaming, until he must share the Blood Bond with Tem to save her life. Once he does, his own life will never be the same.
The black dog is not scratching. He goes back to his sniffing and huffing and then he starts cracking his bone. Stick and I are huddled tight. . . . It is dark and no Daddy or Mommy and after a while I watch the lids of my eyes close down like jaws.Told from the point of view of a six-year-old child, The Bear is the story of Anna and her little brother, Stick--two young children forced to fend for themselves in Algonquin Park after a black bear attacks their parents. A gripping and mesmerizing exploration of the child psyche, this is a survival story unlike any other, one that asks what it takes to survive in the wilderness and what happens when predation comes from within.
Ece Ayhan (Datça/Muğla, 1931-İzmir, 12 Temmuz 2002). Şiirimizin en önemli “modern ustalarından biri” olarak adlandırılır. Ankara Üniversitesi Siyasal Bilgiler Fakültesi’ni bitirdi. İlk şiiri 1954’te Türk Dili’nde yayımlandı. Bu dönemde, sonradan ilk kitabı Kınar Hanımın Denizleri’ne (1959) aldığı, kendine özgü çağrışımlar ve göndermelerle örülü şiirleriyle hem Türk şiirinde hem de İkinci Yeni’nin içinde kendine farklı bir kanal açtı. 1965’te yayımladığı Bakışsız Bir Kedi Kara ve 1968’de yayımlanan Ortodoksluklar’la neredeyse bütünüyle “özel bir dil” halini alan bu şiir, Ayhan’ın, 1973’te yayımladığı ve daha geniş bir okur kitlesince alımlanan Devlet ve Tabiat’ıyla birlikte bu kez de “sokağın diliyle” okurunu (ve izleyicilerini) oluşturdu. 1977’de yayımlanan ve kitapla aynı adı taşıyan ünlü şiirini ve ilk dört kitabını içeren Yort Savul ise Ece Ayhan şiirinin kendisinden sonraki kuşaklar üzerindeki gücünün belki de topluca belgelenişi idi. 1981’de Zambaklı Padişah, 1982’de de “tarihin düzünden okunduğu” Çok Eski Adıyladır’ı yayımlayan Ece Ayhan’ın şiiri üzerinde Enis Batur, Tahta Troya’da (1981) bir kitap boyutunda konaklamış; Ender Erenel Ece Ayhan Sözlüğü’nü, Kemal Yalgın - Orhan Alkaya ikilisi ise Çok Eski Adıyladır Sözlüğü’nü yayımlamışlardı. Ayhan’ın ‘82 sonrası şiirlerinin bir bölümünü, kimi yazı ve konuşmalarıyla birlikte içeren Çanakkaleli Melâhat... 1991’de “düzşiirler” alt başlığıyla yayımlanmıştı.
Heimat als Aventiure unter Verwendung des mittelhochdeutschen Aventiurekonzepts wird der Heimatbegriff zwischen 1989 und 2001 an seinen Randern ausserhalb der traditionellen Heimatliteratur untersucht. Heimat wird vom Territorium abgelost, was eine Individualisierung des Begriffs zur Folge hat und gleichzeitig dessen Offnung durch die Auffassung von Geschichte als Erzahlung ermoglicht. Uber eine Postmoderne-Konzeption nach Welsch und dem erwahnten erzahltheoretischen Zugang uber Aventiure, einer strukturalistischen Vorgangsweise und der moglichen-Welten-Theorie wird Heimat beweglich und schliesslich selbst zu einer Erzahlung. Heimat erscheint als Moglichkeitsraum einer Aventiure, die durch das Erzahlen performativ realisiert wird. Histoire und discours fallen dabei in eins, wodurch Heimat entsteht.
This is a definitive study of the phenomenon known as Silver Mania. The conclusions can all be stated in a few pages but the underlying facts are carefully presented to provide a basic under standing and to substantiate the conclusions. Most of those afflicted with silver mania are undaunted by facts; they dont want to be persuaded of the reality of things. Speculators do not learn from history, so this study is not for them. It is for the masses who have been innocent victims of silver mania, and who are able in a democratic society to correct injustices. Silver and gold and copper have a chemical as well as historical relationship. Both silver and gold were scarce until the discovery of silver in the Americas in the 1500s, and the scarcity ratio from pre-1500 is cited by silver bulls as a natural price relationship. During the period that silver was becoming overly abundant it also came into wide usage as a monetary standard and this led to inflation. This was solved by demonetizing silver and the world was thus oversupplied with an attractive metal that was useful only for jewelry and tableware. Silver mines in the United States were the major source of newly-mined silver in the world and the mine operators were able to lobby successfully for legislation to support the price of their product until industrial use started increasing during the 1950s.
It reads like a theological assignment as a thesis or other such paper. For popular consumption it could be tightened up a lot and more explanation of the historical background could be inserted. The actual questions themselves are intriguing, but despite all the introductory padding before and reference information afterward, there is room for improvement from an editorial standpoint.
