The Penguin Atlas of Ancient History

The ancient atlases by way of Colin McEvedy are all nice. The Atlas of historic background is not any exception.
If you're in any respect drawn to old civilization, you would like this e-book on your assortment. simply turn via it and you may realize how little you recognize concerning the countries that molded ecu and near-eastern culture.
This booklet does a superb activity of summarizing the background of the eu, North African, and center jap international and places it into one great package deal. i've got learn many books on Greek and Roman historical past, yet this e-book gave me a superb evaluate of what was once occurring within the remainder of the area additionally. It used to be attention-grabbing to determine the ebb and movement of peoples all through time within the a variety of areas. My simply lawsuits have been the tasteless and infrequently complicated maps: black and white line drawings with an excessive amount of cross-hatching and shading to tell apart dozens of map parts at a unmarried time.
McEvedy is an invaluable consultant into the plausibilities of pre-history, restraining himself from speculative enthusiasms, but delivering clean and fascinating perspectives. because the trivialities of historical past start to collect, he maps advancements with the boldness that comes of encyclopedic wisdom, but with a lofty eye to the most and significant traits. background too frequently is taught as names and dates, and not using a experience of context. McEvedy's atlas sequence presents pretty much as good a sense for the Human tale of the final 9,000 years as might be squeezed into so few pages. humans educated via this sequence can plunge into disjoint experiences of, say, the Etruscans or the Kassites, with a superb tough suggestion of the place they healthy into the nice scheme of items.

The Cognitive Style of PowerPoint (2nd Edition)

This can be the second one version. The PDF is a top quality computing device publishing export, acquired as an e-book from Tufte’s website.

In company and executive bureaucracies, the traditional technique for creating a presentation is to discuss an inventory of issues equipped onto slides projected up at the wall. for a few years, overhead projectors lit up transparencies, and slide projectors confirmed high-resolution 35-mm slides. Now “slideware” desktop courses for shows are approximately in every single place. Early within the twenty first century, numerous hundred million copies of Microsoft PowerPoint have been turning out trillions of slides every one year.

Alas, slideware usually reduces the analytical caliber of shows. specifically, the preferred PowerPoint templates (ready-made designs) often weaken verbal and spatial reasoning, and normally corrupt statistical research. what's the challenge with PowerPoint? and the way will we increase our shows?

Step 2. Place the aggregate in covered containers to maintain this condition until ready for use. This simplifies calculations and eliminates error caused by variations in aggregate moisture content. When the concrete quality is specified in terms of the W/C ratio, the trial-batch procedure consists of combining paste with the proper amounts of FA and CA to produce the required slump and workability. Step 3. Calculate the larger quantities per sack and/or per cubic yard. EXAMPLE USING THE TRIAL-BATCH METHOD 3-13.

Step 10. Determine the uniform load on a wale (ULW) by multiplying the MCP by the MWS and dividing by 12 inches per foot. Where-MCP = maximum concrete pressure, in pounds per square foot MWS = maximum wale spacing, in inches, divided by 12 inches per foot ULW = uniform load on wale, in pounds per linear foot Step 11. Determine the tie spacing based on the ULW using Table 4-3 or Table 4-4 (depending on type of wale, either single or double). Refer to the column headed Uniform Load and find the value for the ULW.

Severe exposure means service where the concrete is exposed to deicing chemicals or other aggressive agents or where the concrete continually contacts moisture or free-standing water before freezing. Examples are pavements, bridge decks, curbs, gutters, sidewalks, canal linings, or exterior water tanks or slumps. SLUMP 3-11. The slump test (see Appendix B) measures the consistency of concrete in cubic yards. Do not use it to compare mixes having different proportions or mixes containing different sizes of aggregate.
