Summary

The Problem: How to ensure that isolated populations receive NECESSARY medical assistance, with an adequate supply of dietary supplements that improve nutritional outcomes of these populations
My current focus will be on Nicaragua for several reasons. Firstly, I live here and while I am not an expert on all aspects of their health care system, I do have an acquaintance with and an appreciation for it.
Secondly, Nicaragua is the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. I do not present my ideas to “show them what is good for them” but rather as an attempt to have this country become a role-model for others, to be an inspiration.
Thirdly, Spanish is the third most frequent first-language in the world, behind English and Mandarin Chinese. Many of my ideas would not need to be translated to have their most profound effects although my goal is to make this model accessible to all USAW’s.

    Quantum mechanics was developed during the first few decades of the twentieth century via a series of inspired guesses made by various physicists, including Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Schroedinger, Heisenberg, Pauli, and Dirac. All these scientists were trying to construct a self-consistent theory of microscopic dynamics that was compatible with experimental observations. 
    The purpose of this book is to present quantum mechanics in a clear, concise, and systematic fashion, starting from the fundamental postulates, and developing the theory in as logical a manner as possible. Topics covered in the book include the fundamental postulates of quantum mechanics, angular momentum, time-independent and time-dependent perturbation theory, scattering theory, identical particles, and relativistic electron theory.

    Fellow aspiring programmer,  
     
    This is an easy-to-follow guide on how to learn Python for absolute beginners!  
     
    My name is Arthur and I have more than 10 years of experience programming in Python. I worked as a Senior Developer for Google and I now run my own Network Security Consulting Business in the heart of London.  
     
    Programming is my passion. My mission with this book is to make programming your passion too!  
     
    Why Python? I'll be quick and precise just like how Python is itself!  
     
    1. Python is an easy language to learn for first time programmers. Simple syntax. Easy to grasp.  
    2. It's the most marketable language at the moment. Want a high salary? Learn Python (Average salary for Python programmers - $110K/year).  
    3. Wanna work for startups? Python is the way! The reason is that it shortens the way from idea to implementation. Startups need to be fast and implement new ideas super fast.  
    4. Wanna get into web application development? Python again is the way.  
    5. Python is the ideal language for those who want to master computer security.  
    6. What's hot in Computer Science at the moment? Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning! Correct! Check the job offers in the AI field and you'll see that Python is the dominant language! 
     
    Python is really popular. More importantly, it's getting more popular every year. Over the last year its popularity increased more than any other language's!  
     
    Get your hands on a straightforward guide that will walk you through step-by-step on how to master Python. 
     
    In this book you'll get all that you need. For example: 
     
    - Step-by-step Installation Guide 
    - Simple operations 
    - Python lingo - important terms 
    - Syntax tips 
    - Control Statements  
    - Loops 
    - Comparison statements 
    - GUI  
     
    I'll even show you how to build a GUI application! Not just command line statements but a proper GUI real application.  
     
    I'm happy that my mentor about 10 years ago shifted my attention to Python. Now it's my turn to shift your attention to the right path.  
     
    Happy Python folks!  
     
    Arthur

    The New York Times bestselling author of The Rational Optimist and Genome returns with a fascinating argument for evolution that definitively dispels a dangerous, widespread myth: that we can command and control our world. 
    Human society evolves. Change in technology, language, morality, and society is incremental, inexorable, gradual, and spontaneous. It follows a narrative, going from one stage to the next; it creeps rather than jumps; it has its own spontaneous momentum rather than being driven from outside; it has no goal or end in mind; and it largely happens by trial and error—a version of natural selection. Much of the human world is the result of human action but not of human design: it emerges from the interactions of millions, not from the plans of a few. 
    Drawing on fascinating evidence from science, economics, history, politics, and philosophy, Matt Ridley demolishes conventional assumptions that the great events and trends of our day are dictated by those on high, whether in government, business, academia, or organized religion. On the contrary, our most important achievements develop from the bottom up. Just as skeins of geese form Vs in the sky without meaning to and ter-mites build mud cathedrals without architects, so brains take shape without brain-makers, learning happens without teaching, and morality changes for no reason other than the prevailing fashion. Although we neglect, defy, and ignore them, bottom-up trends shape the world. The Industrial Revolution, cell phones, the rise of Asia, and the Internet were never planned; they happened. Languages emerged and evolved by a form of natural selection, as did common law. Torture, racism, slavery, and pedophilia—all once widely regarded as acceptable—are now seen as immoral despite the decline of religion in recent decades. In this wide-ranging and erudite book, Ridley brilliantly makes the case for evolution, rather than design, as the force that has shaped much of our culture, our technology, our minds, and that even now is shaping our future. 
    As compelling as it is controversial, as authoritative as it is ambitious, Ridley’s deeply thought-provoking book will change the way we think about the world and how it works.
