Are you your own greatest critic? Do you have low self-esteem? Have you ever thought that if people knew the real you, that they would think less of you? Does life feel an uphill struggle because nobody - not even you - is truly on your side? If any of this sounds familiar, it is time to take a fresh look at the most important relationship of all:your relationship with yourself.In this thought-provoking book, marital therapist Andrew G Marshall looks at how to love yourself enough to make better relationships and how to stop zig-zagging between boosting yourself up (often to unsustainable heights) and becoming overly critical. He explains:- Why modern life is making it harder to have a balanced opinion of ourselves.- The types of thinking that sabotage and make life harder.- Why old pains can still cast a shadow today and how to make peace with your past.- How to develop a positive mind-set.- Increasing your self-confidence.(Some of the exercises in this book have appeared in The Single Trap by Andrew G. Marshall, published by Bloomsbury)

The history of life is a nearly four billion year old story of transformative change. This change ranges from dramatic macroscopic innovations such as the evolution of wings or eyes, to a myriad of molecular changes that form the basis of macroscopic innovations. We are familiar with many examples of innovations (qualitatively new phenotypes that provide a critical benefit) but have no systematic understanding of the principles that allow organisms to innovate. This book proposes
several such principles as the basis of a theory of innovation, integrating recent knowledge about complex molecular phenotypes with more traditional Darwinian thinking. Central to the book are genotype networks: vast sets of connected genotypes that exist in metabolism and regulatory circuitry, as
well as in protein and RNA molecules. The theory can successfully unify innovations that occur at different levels of organization. It captures known features of biological innovation, including the fact that many innovations occur multiple times independently, and that they combine existing parts of a system to new purposes. It also argues that environmental change is important to create biological systems that are both complex and robust, and shows how such robustness can facilitate
innovation. Beyond that, the theory can reconcile neutralism and selectionism, as well as explain the role of phenotypic plasticity, gene duplication, recombination, and cryptic variation in innovation. Finally, its principles can be applied to technological innovation, and thus open to human engineering
endeavours the powerful principles that have allowed life's spectacular success.
The dream that a bathtub of water and 100 g lithium could supply a family for 50 years with electricity stimulated scientists since the 1940s all over the world to make every effort to construct a working fusion reactor that uses the most fundamental of all energy sources: the nuclear fusion that fuels sun.In the late 1940's scientists began to investigate if it was possible to use the nuclear fusion, that had been discovered to be the sun's fuel, as an energy source on earth. The source of fusion energy is the binding energy of the atoms.The details of the physics behind fusion as well as the challenges facing the engineers to build a working reactor are outlined here. Both feasible possibilities of confinement, the Tokamak and the Stellarator are explained and discussed.
From one of Britain's best loved authors and pioneering naturalists
Mauritius, the green and mountainous island in the Indian Ocean, was once the home of the ill-fated dodo, and by the 1970s it still had many unique but seriously endangered species. To rescue some of these creatures from extinction, Gerald Durrell spent uncomfortable nights in the jungle looking for bats and pink pigeons, and climbed near-vertical rock faces to find Telfair’s skinks and Gunther’s geckos, spending his spare time exploring the enchanted worlds of the coral reefs with their varied multicoloured marine life. By the end of his trip, he had an extraordinary collection of animals to take to his Jersey sanctuary from where the progeny could, in time, be restored to Mauritius.

Over the last few years, mobile equipment to remotely connect to the corporate network (smartphones, ultra-light laptops, etc.) has rapidly grown. Future development perspectives and new tendencies such as BYOD (Bring your own device) expose more than ever business information system to various compromising threats. The safety control of remote accesses has become a strategic stake for all companies. This book reviews all the threats weighing on these remote accesses, as well as the existing standard and specific countermeasures to protect companies, from both the technical and organizational aspects.
A comprehensive introduction to M2M Standards and systems architecture, from concept to implementation
Focusing on the latest technological developments, M2M Communications: A Systems Approach is an advanced introduction to this important and rapidly evolving topic. It provides a systems perspective on machine-to-machine services and the major telecommunications relevant technologies. It provides a focus on the latest standards currently in progress by ETSI and 3GPP, the leading standards entities in telecommunication networks and solutions. The structure of the book is inspired by ongoing standards developments and uses a systems-based approach for describing the problems which may be encountered when considering M2M, as well as offering proposed solutions from the latest developments in industry and standardization.
The authors provide comprehensive technical information on M2M architecture, protocols and applications, especially examining M2M service architecture, access and core network optimizations, and M2M area networks technologies. It also considers dominant M2M application domains such as Smart Metering, Smart Grid, and eHealth. Aimed as an advanced introduction to this complex technical field, the book will provide an essential end-to-end overview of M2M for professionals working in the industry and advanced students.
