Summary

Einstein's contributions to our ideas of time and space and to our knowledge of the universe in general, are of so momentous a nature, that they easily take their place among the two or three greatest achievements of the twentieth century. This book attempts to give, in popular form, an account of this work. As, however, Einstein's work is so largely dependent upon the work of Newton and Newton's successors, the first two chapters are devoted to the latter.
Available since: 01/02/2020.

    In developing this third revision of version 4.0 of the Field Operations Guide for Disaster Assessment and Response, the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) of the United States Agency of International Development (USAID) has drawn on the expertise of numerous state, national, and international agencies and organizations. Selected sources of information include the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees’ Handbook for Emergencies, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs’ United Nations Disaster Assessment and Coordination Field Handbook, and the U.S. Public Health Service’s Handbook of Environmental Health, among others.   The Field Operations Guide for Disaster Assessment and Response has been created as a reference tool for individuals sent to disaster sites to undertake initial assessments or to participate as members of a Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART). It contains information on general responsibilities for disaster responders, formats and reference material for assessing and reporting on populations at risk, DART position descriptions and duty checklists, descriptions of OFDA stockpile commodities, information for working with military in the field, and much more.   Its myriad resources, extensive information, and handy compact format make this field guide a necessary companion for those participating in a variety of disaster assessment and response field operations.

    Understanding Everything

    What is the cosmos made of at its most fundamental level? Where does consciousness exist in the physical world? How does it fit into our understanding of evolution? What can you and I do to ensure the evolution of our species continues beyond the next generation? Ervin Laszlo has a mind as big as the cosmos, it seems, as his studies and writings address these questions and every aspect of the world as we know it. He was a child prodigy who gave more than sixty piano concerts a year, and in his late teens turned his genius to the study of physics, the cosmos, and consciousness. In this dialogue he talks about politics, economics, culture, consciousness, ecology, sustainability, and spirituality, all with the deftness of one who understands the unfolding of universes as well as the nature of particulate matter.  
    Ultimately, though, "all complexity is generated from simplicity," says, Laszlo. At the cutting edge of science we find evidence that "we are all connected. We are rediscovering at a deeper level our connections to each other, and these connections are based on energy and information. All of this has real roots now emerging from physics, the new cosmology, the new biology, and the new research on consciousness. That is the key, to discover that our sense of connection is not purely imaginary. It's not something to be dismissed. It is there. It is real. It is to be cultivated." (hosted by Michael Toms)
