This book presents the relevant consequences of recently discovered and interdisciplinary phenomena, triggered by local mechanical instabilities. In particular, it looks at emissions from nano-scale mechanical instabilities such as fracture, turbulence, buckling and cavitation, focussing on vibrations at the TeraHertz frequency and Piezonuclear reactions. Future applications for this work could include earthquake precursors, climate change, energy production and cellular biology. A series of fracture experiments on natural rocks demonstrates that the TeraHertz vibrations are able to induce fission reactions on medium weight elements accompanied by neutron emissions. The same phenomenon appears to have occurred in several different situations, particularly in the chemical evolution of the Earth and Solar System, through seismicity (rocky planets) and storms (gaseous planets). As the authors explore, these phenomena can also explain puzzles related to the history of our planet, like the ocean formation or the primordial carbon pollution, as well as scientific mysteries, like the so-called cold nuclear fusion or the correct radio-carbon dating of organic materials, such as the Turin Shroud. In biology, Piezonuclear reactions could explain the mechanism that governs the so-called sodium-potassium pump and more in general, the metabolic processes. Scientists engaged in seismology, geophysics, geochemistry, climatology, planetology, condensed matter physics and b iology, as well as those involved in theoretical and applied mechanics, will all appreciate the innovative work presented here in a holistic way.
Psychology and Neuro-Linguistic programming (NLP) are two of the most powerful forces available to mankind. For too long, these disciplines have been kept secret from the masses. Some of the most devastating insights into the human mind have been hidden away in the pages of psychology journals - dark secrets which offer the promise of power and influence, over ourselves and over others. It has been made almost impossible for outsiders to access the power of personal influence - until now. In his book entitled Dark NLP, author Michael Pace combines insights from psychology´s darkest studies and NLP´s most effective techniques. You will be shown exactly what NLP is, before being offered insight into the immense levels of controversy it has generated over the years. NLP techniques will then be combined with those drawn from the most controversial areas of psychology to show you how to take control of yourself, and your own life, before you are able to extend your influence over others. In this revealing book, you will also learn how to use advanced verbal and physical techniques to create a deep sense of connection, comfort, and rapport with almost anyone instantly. Proven methods to uncovering your deepest desires, and staying on the path of their pursuit, will be broken down for you in an easy-to-understand way. Some of the most powerful masters of Dark NLP ever to walk the Earth will be provided to you as inspirational role models to learn from. You will also be shown how Dark NLP gives you a nuclear level advantage in the world of dating and romance. This is your best chance to take control of your life once and for all.

Doug Parker is a widower at age 29, and in his quiet suburban town, that makes him something of a celebrity - the object of sympathy, curiosity, and, in some cases, unbridled desire. But Doug has other things on his mind. First there´s his 16-year-old stepson, Russ: a once-sweet kid who now is getting into increasingly serious trouble on a daily basis. Then there are Doug´s sisters: his bossy twin, Clair, who´s just left her husband and moved in with Doug, determined to rouse him from his grieving stupor, and Debbie, who´s engaged to Doug´s ex-best friend and manically determined to pull off the perfect wedding at any cost.Soon Doug´s entire nuclear family is in his face. And when he starts dipping his toes into the shark-infested waters of the second-time-around dating scene, it isn´t long before his new life is spinning hopelessly out of control, cutting a harrowing and often hilarious swath of sexual missteps and escalating chaos across the suburban landscape. 1.

Book 2 in the ntionally best-selling Presidential Series by West Point graduate, former Green Beret and New York Times best-selling Author Bob Mayer.What is the Sword of Damocles that President Kennedy and Premier Khrushchev developed in secret during the dark days of the Cuban Missile Crisis? For 13 days in October 1963 the world came the closest to nuclear armageddon. On 22 November 1963, President Kennedy was assassinated. On the 25th of November, as Kennedy’s body lay in state at the Rotunda in Washington, Anastas Mikyoan, Khrushchev’s top adviser, presented the Premier’s condolences to Jacqueline Kennedy. She took Mikoyan’s hand in both hers and told him: ´´I am sure that Chairman Khrushchev and my husband could have been successful in the search for peace, and they were really striving for that. Now the Chairman must continue the agreed upon endeavor and bring it to completion.´´ On 12 October 1964, a Washington socialite named Mary Meyer was shot in the back of the head and through the heart at point-blank range. She had been married to a high-ranking CIA agent. More importantly, she had been carrying on an affair with President John F. Kennedy and was one of his most trusted friends, at his side through the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis. Mary Meyer kept a secret diary. On 13 October 1964, the day after Mary Meyer’s murder, the Soviet Politburo forced Nikita Khrushchev to resign from power and put him under house arrest. What was in Mary Meyer’s diary that caused her murder and Khrushchev’s resignation? Why is it even more important today to find and decrypt it? Today, in the foothills of Mount Ararat an operative makes a chilling discovery: six Jupiter Missiles dating back to the Cuban Missile Crisis. But only three of the nuclear warheads are present. Where are the other three? Paul Ducharme and Evie Tolliver unveil a fail-safe type scenario brokered by President Ken... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeffrey Kafer.

A hydraulic machine for astonishing wild pigs was one of the many technological highlights the author encountered in the course of his career as a research scientist and science writer. Writing a book about them, never taking more (or less) than two printed pages for each of 146 subjects was a very special challenge. The book covers fundamentally important achievements of technology that directly impacted mankind or even profoundly changed it. Many of those highlights are quite new, at least one of them (power generation by nuclear fusion) is not available yet. But particularly ingenious things dating way back were also included, as they are the base of our technical civilization Good examples are ceramics as well as copper, bronze and iron; whole periods of history have been named for the latter three. The analog computer of Antikythera used for stellar navigation was made some 2100 years ago, gunpowder was used in China as early as 1044 A.D., the astronomical clock in the Strasburg cathedral was built in the 19th century. On the other hand, Theodor W. Hänsch and John L. Hall were granted a Nobel Prize in 2005 for a discovery that brought us extremely accurate optical clocks. And the Smartphone was a 2007 breakthrough; hundreds of millions of them have been sold since then. The basic concept of describing and explaining major technological highlights to non-scientists with just 800 words was inspired by the column Inventions - fifty years later in the Swiss daily Neue Zürcher Zeitung (NZZ), to which the author contributed on a regular base since 2007. The column was later renamed Achievements of Technology - no more time limits. Many of the book-chapters were taken from those sources, updated, edited and translated into English. Other sources were articles the author wrote for various newspapers and magazines. However, many highlights of technology were researched and written specifically for this book. Reading it is both fun and highly instructive. n/a

LAnnunziata earned his undergraduate B.Sc. degree in Chemistry in 1965 from St. Edwards University and M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in 1967 and 1970 at the University of Arizona. His graduate thesis research in the 1960s was carried out under a research contract with the then U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (U.S. AEC). The research work dealt with the analysis of radionuclides and chemical remediation of the environment in the event of possible nuclear war and fission product fallout. His main research interests have been focused on the development of chemical and instrumental methods for the detection and measurement of radioactive nuclides and the utilization of radionuclides as tracers in biological research. LAnnunziata was formerly Head of Fellowships and Training at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna, Austria; and he has served as a representative for the IAEA in fact-finding, planning, and implementation assignments on peaceful applications of nuclear energy for development in over 50 countries of the world from 1976 to 2007. He is the author and editor of several books including Radionuclide Tracers, Their Detection and Measurement published in 1987 and the Handbook of Radioactivity Analysis now in its third edition published in 2012. His more lengthy biography has been included in the annual editions of Whos Who in the World from 1987 to 2016.
The first novel from iconic X-Files star Gillian Anderson and New York Times best-selling author Jeff Rovin: a science fiction thriller of epic proportions. Renowned child psychologist Caitlin O´Hara is a single mom trying to juggle her job, her son, and a lackluster dating life. Her world is suddenly upturned when Maanik, the daughter of India´s ambassador to the United Nations, starts speaking in tongues and having violent visions. Caitlin is sure that her fits have something to do with the recent assassination attempt on her father - a shooting that has escalated nuclear tensions between India and Pakistan to dangerous levels - but when teenagers around the world start having similar outbursts, Caitlin begins to think that there’s a more sinister force at work. In Haiti, a student claws at her throat, drowning on dry land. In Iran, a boy suddenly and inexplicably sets himself on fire. Animals, too, are acting irrationally, from rats in New York City to birds in South America to ordinary house pets. With Asia on the cusp of nuclear war, Caitlin must race across the globe to uncover the mystical links among these seemingly unrelated incidents in order to save her patient - and perhaps the world. 1.
