Summary

The role of fossil planktonic foraminifera as markers for biostratigraphical zonation and correlation underpins most drilling of marine sedimentary sequences and is key to hydrocarbon exploration. The first - and only - book to synthesize the whole biostratigraphic and geological usefulness of planktonic foraminifera, Biostratigraphic and Geological Significance of Planktonic Foraminifera unifies existing biostratigraphic schemes and provides an improved correlation reflecting regional biogeographies.  
Renowned micropaleontologist Marcelle K. Boudagher-Fadel presents a comprehensive analysis of existing data on fossil planktonic foraminifera genera and their phylogenetic evolution in time and space. This important text, now in its Second Edition, is in considerable demand and is now being republished by UCL Press.

    From the acclaimed author of Spring Wildflowers of the Northeast, a beautifully illustrated follow-up introduction to the summer-blooming wildflowers of the northeastern United States and Canada 
    This exquisitely illustrated volume provides an accessible, in-depth introduction to summer-blooming wildflowers of the northeastern United States and Canada. Featuring more than 700 detailed color photos and a large, beautifully designed format, the book delves into the life histories of more than thirty-five wildflowers and their relatives, from common roadside favorites, such as asters and milkweeds, to interesting, lesser-known species, including Indian pipe and ginseng. Drawing on a wealth of personal experience and the latest scientific research, and presenting it all in terms anyone can understand, acclaimed naturalist and photographer Carol Gracie invites readers to enhance their appreciation of the beauty of these wildflowers by learning not just their names or how many petals they have, but what pollinates them, how their seeds are dispersed, how they interact with other plants and animals, how Native Americans and other people have used them, and other interesting facts. 
    Each species is illustrated with a range of detailed color photos that not only capture its beauty but illustrate the features discussed in the text and show the plant in its environment alongside the pollinators, herbivores, or seed dispersers with which, in many cases, the wildflower has evolved. Other topics covered include the naming of wildflowers; pathogens and pests; related species in other parts of the world; and wildflowers in history, literature, and art.

    Despite his much-hyped culpability, Steven Paul Jobs was not devoid of creative vision. It was his sheer aptitude to foresee the future in the perspective of things that contemporaries even did not guess, that had transformed Apple from the darkest corner of a garage to the pinnacle of commercial glory.It is also quite paradoxical that when the maiden iPhone was launched to the inquisitive sight of the larger audience, Steve Jobs was even himself skeptical about the supreme success of the gadget he had brought about.The spur of technological evolution in itself is not intuitively decent or dreadful. The cause of concern is the basic human adaptability with fast-paced technological growth. Saving an exceptional calamitous incident in the offing, the super-fast journey of technological furtherance will proceed to the infinity.In the realm of this reality, the modern rationalist human outlook is gradually disappearing from the philosophical scene of technological affinity, that was originally addressed to serve mankind.This is what the relevant author and computer science faculty at Georgetown University, California viz., Calvin C. Newport speaks about in his much talked about book, Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World.
