But commanding the ballistic missile submarine USS Nevada, keeping her crew trained and alert during ninety-day submerged patrols, and being prepared to launch weapons on valid presidential orders, carries a burden of command like few other jobs in the military. Mark Bishop is a man who accepts that responsibility, and handles it well. And at a time when tensions are escalating around the Pacific Rim, the Navy is glad to have him. Mark wants someone to come home to after sea patrols. The woman he has in mind is young, with a lovely smile, and very smart. She's a civilian, yet she understands the U.S. Navy culture. And he has a strong sense that life with her would never be boring. But she may be too deep in her work to see the potential in a relationship with him. Gina Gray would love to be married. She has always envisioned her life that way. A breakup she didn't see coming, though, has her focusing all her attention on what she does best--ocean science research. She's on the cusp of a major breakthrough, and she needs Mark Bishop's perspective and help. Because what she told the Navy she's figured out is only the beginning. If she's right, submarine warfare is about to enter a new and dangerous chapter.

Download and read online Probability that the propagation of an undetected fatigue crack will not cause a structural failure in PDF and EPUB The undetected propagation of a fatigue crack constitutes a significant cause of aircraft and other structural failures. To raise the structural failure load to a relatively high level, the manufacturer can divide the structure into many small elements, which significantly increases the ability of a structure to tolerate an element failure. This report presents a procedure for calculating the probability that the element has not failed, as a function of the crack propagation time and hence the crack's length. The procedure's form is so simple that computations with a desk calculator can yield reasonably accurate results. To illustrate this, the report uses data that an aircraft manufacturer developed for the structural components/elements that currently limit the service life of an existing transport aircraft.

Download and read online Hidden in the Words in PDF and EPUB This book describes two subjective methods of evaluating what your subconscious actually feels about the words you use in everyday communications, and in spiritual or intellectual activities. The first method demonstrated measures the spacing of your palms in a 'slow clapping' motion, which follows in response to a question. This technique has been used in the pranic healing school of the Philippines to test the state of energy body components, but can equally well be used to gain a response to mental questions in a form of divination. The second method uses an unusual and ancient form of dowsing, once employed for a variety of purposes in Sardinia. Dowsing seems to date back millenia, to when ancient monuments were sited almost inevitably, above underground water sources. This method counts the number of rotations of a Y-shaped plastic tube (in substitution for the traditional forked hazel twig) you are able to make, in response to questions of the type: 'What is the energy of this (place, word, phrase, name)?' - your subconscious prevents further rotations occuring beyond the number which corresponds to its energy relative to other words. The book contains an assessment of a large number of commonly used words, phrases, names, and emotions, and evaluates also the energy scores for numbers in common use. Many of these evaluations were carried out by the author, and hence inevitably, are subjective, though the method has been used successfully by others. For example, trials with Swedish subjects are mentioned, that show persons with a modicum of interest and competence in 'energy fields' are capable of duplicating these results if they are able to extend their auras. What is the connection with the aura? The author's hypothesis is that both methods are measuring the extension of the aura in response to a question held in mind. The significance of the book then, is that it allows people to assess their reaction to the english language, to persons in the media, and to review excerpts from text files to assess the likely impact they will have on the reader.

Download and read online The Biology of Tumors in PDF and EPUB The Ninth Annual Pezcoller Symposium entitled "The Biology of Tumors" was held in Rovereto, Italy, June 4-7, 1997. It focused on the genetic mechanisms underlying het erogeneity of tumor cell populations and tumor cell differentiation, on interactions be tween tumor cells and cells of host defenses, and the mechanisms of angiogenesis. With presentations at the cutting edge of progress and stimulating discussions, this symposium addressed issues related to phenomena concerned with cell regulation and cell interactions as determined by activated genes through the appropriate and timely media tion of gene products. Important methodologies that would allow scientists to measure dif ferentially genes and gene products and thus validate many of the mechanisms of control currently proposed were considered, as were the molecular basis of tumor recognition by the immune system, interactions between cells and molecular mechanisms of cell regula tion as they are affected by or implemented through these interactions. The molecular and cellular mechanisms of tumor vascularization were also discussed. It was recognized that angiogenesis provides a potential site of therapeutic intervention and this makes it even more important to understand the mechanisms underlying it. We wish to thank the participants in the symposium for their substantial contribu tions and their participation in the spirited discussions that followed. We would also like to thank Drs.

Download and read online SIL and Functional Safety in a Nutshell in PDF and EPUB This ebook explains what SIL and functional safety means in a nutshell. The book is intended for everybody who is new to functional safety and SIL and wants to have a full overview without being lost in the details. It is excellent for managers that need to understand quickly what functional safety is all about and how it will influence the work of their employees and their products and/or services. It is excellent for engineers and professionals that want to get started with functional safety and understand the big picture before going into detail. Many standards, guidelines and other publications exist that talk about functional safety. All of them with their own level of detail. This book does not to go into the details of what has to be done according to what standard and what not. It explains main functional safety concepts so that you know everything you need to know to get started. Functional safety is not rocket science and once you understand it and applied it a few times in practice you will notice it is just good engineering practice. This book tries to explain that good engineering practice. Functional safety standards can be confusing and contradicting at times and sometimes they require things that make no sense. You do not need to understand the standards in order to apply and be good at functional safety. If you understand the concepts explained in this book you can apply functional safety into your organisation and to your products, with or without following the exact requirements of standards. Actually once you understand how functional safety works you most likely will go beyond what standards say and create your own functional safety organisation of excellence. And if you do that, well then you are well on your way in becoming a longtime winner as suppose to a short term fuse.

Download and read online Multiple Stable States in Natural Ecosystems in PDF and EPUB One of the most interesting and vexing problems in ecology is how distinctly different communities of plants and animals can occur in the same ecosystem. The theory of these systems, known as multiple stable states, is well understood, but whether multiple stable states actually exist in nature has remained a hotly debated subject. Multiple Stable States in Natural Ecosystems provides a broad and synthetic critique of recent advances in theory and new experimental evidence. Modern models of systems with multiple stable states are placed in historical context. Current theories are covered in a rigorous fashion with the specific goal of identifying testable predictions about multiple stable states. The book provides a more synthetic, more critical, and broader analysis of multiple stable states in natural ecosystems than any previous review. By making the theory more transparent and the analysis of the evidence more comparative, the book broadens the discussion about multiple stable states, leading to a more general consideration of the interplay between theory and experiment in community ecology and environmental management. This accessible research monograph will be suitable for graduate students taking courses in community ecology, theoretical ecology, and restoration ecology. It will also be a valuable reference for professional ecologists and environmental managers requiring a concise overview of the topic.
