Summary

Compost is a type of organic matter that is rich in humus and plant nutrients such as nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K). NPK content of compost varies from 1.5-0.5-1.0 to 3.5-1.0-2.0 depending upon the organic waste materials and manures used for making compost. The process of making compost is called composting.

    Einstein's Shadow follows a team of elite scientists on their historic mission to take the first picture of a black hole, putting Einstein's theory of relativity to its ultimate test and helping to answer our deepest questions about space, time, the origins of the universe, and the nature of reality. 
    Photographing a black hole sounds impossible, a contradiction in terms. But Shep Doeleman and a global coalition of scientists are on the cusp of doing just that. 
    With exclusive access to the team, journalist Seth Fletcher spent five years following Shep and an extraordinary cast of characters as they assembled the Event Horizon Telescope, a virtual radio observatory the size of the Earth. He witnessed their struggles, setbacks, and breakthroughs, and along the way, he explored the latest thinking on the most profound questions about black holes. Do they represent a limit to our ability to understand reality? Or will they reveal the clues that lead to the long-sought Theory of Everything? 
    Fletcher transforms astrophysics into something exciting, accessible, and immediate, taking us on an incredible adventure to better understand the complexity of our galaxy, the boundaries of human perception and knowledge, and how the messy human endeavor of science really works. 
    Weaving a compelling narrative account of human ingenuity with excursions into cutting-edge science, Einstein's Shadow is a tale of great minds on a mission to change the way we understand our universe—and our place in it.

    An exploration of the history of the sixty-mile, Scottish Highland canal and its significance to the region’s transportation and tourism. Thomas Telford’s plan, to connect Loch Ness, Loch Oich, and Loch Lochy with each other and the sea, was a huge undertaking that brought civil engineering to the Highlands on a heroic scale. Deep in the Highlands, far from the canal network of England, engineers forged their way through the Great Glen to construct the biggest canal of its day: twenty-two miles of artificial cutting and no fewer than twenty-eight locks. A.D. (Sandy) Cameron’s book has long been recognized as the authoritative work on the canal as well as a reliable and useful guide to the surrounding area. There are intriguing old plans, not discovered until 1992, and a survey of the dramatic rise in pleasure-craft traffic during the last two decades. But the highlight of the recent past was undoubtedly the Tall Ships passing through the canal in stately procession in 1991. Impossible, then, not to feel the fascination of this beautiful waterway: a working piece of industrial history and a remarkable engineering achievement. This book is a fitting celebration of this remarkable feat of engineering.

    In his new book The Emperor of all Maladies: A Biography of Cancer, oncologist Siddhartha Mukherjee delves into the history and future of the disease. 
    Rather than being a rare exception in our otherwise healthy lives, “quite possibly, cancer is our normalcy,” Mukherjee writes. “We are inherently destined to slouch towards a malignant end,” because the gene mutations that lead to cancer are an inevitable part of our genetic heritage. 
    Overcoming that genetic heritage, Mukherjee says, would be “a technological victory unlike any other we’ve ever accomplished as a species.” 
    Tuesday on the NewsHour, health correspondent Betty Ann Bowser talks to Mukherjee about his book and the patients whose questions inspired him to write it.

    Former Google advertising executive, now Oxford-trained philosopher James Williams launches a plea to society and to the tech industry to help ensure that the technology we all carry with us every day does not distract us from pursuing our true goals in life. As information becomes ever more plentiful, the resource that is becoming more scarce is our attention. In this ‘attention economy’, we need to recognise the fundamental impacts of our new information environment on our lives in order to take back control. Drawing on insights ranging from Diogenes to contemporary tech leaders, Williams’s thoughtful and impassioned analysis is sure to provoke discussion and debate. Williams is the inaugural winner of the Nine Dots Prize, a new Prize for creative thinking that tackles contemporary social issues.
