Summary

Doing research is like going for mushrooms.If you go where everyone goes, it is unlikely that you will still find something, but the places that are not frequented are of no interest to anyone, and therefore you are likely to be alone with your own research. Just like the sun?

    When Lawrence Anthony learned that the northern white rhino, living in the war-ravaged Congo, was on the very brink of extinction, he knew he had to act. If the world lost the sub-species, it would be the largest land mammal since the woolly mammoth to go extinct. In The Last Rhinos, Anthony recounts his attempts to save these remarkable animals.The demand for rhino horns in the Far East has turned poaching into a dangerous black market that threatens the lives of not just these rare beasts, but also the rangers who protect them.The northern white rhino's last refuge was in an area controlled by the infamous Lord's Resistance Army, one of the most vicious rebel groups in the world. In the face of unmoving government bureaucracy, Anthony made a perilous journey deep into the jungle to try to find and convince them to help save the rhino.An inspiring story of conservation in the face of brutal war and bureaucratic quagmires, The Last Rhinos will move animal lovers everywhere.

    Physics is a Greek work and in a wider sense it means science of nature. All physical phenomena has to be reproducible is one of the vital elements in physics. It is important that all the theories be established by experiments or observations as it is the initial step towards the progress of any physical theory. The next step would comprise of structuring a model or theory in order to explain the experiment or the observations. Besides producing results of the said theory a model also has to make predictions. Predictions are important to clearly grasp the model of the physical process. To conclude the theory needs to be corroborated by the experimentations offered by the model. The model will be accepted and validated only if the forecasts are correct. It is important that more experiments be directed with more precision to test the theory over and over again. In physics it is said that an experiment might be enough to quash a model and there are no fixed numbers of experiments which can verify that a theory is absolutely correct. 
    There is dissimilarity among models overall and fundamental concepts. Models are basic descriptions of nature whereas fundamental theories are sources on some maxims from which in principle all physical occurrences can be explained. Like, a complicated system is abridged by justified suppositions. These models play a vital role in nuclear physics where the collaboration is very complex to permit a usage by first principles. 
    For all situations it is important that a theorist be imaginative and intuitive as having a good imagination is more significant than being knowledgeable. It denotes the cognizance of mechanics of how the universe functions.

    Napoleon's Buttons is the fascinating account of seventeen groups of molecules that have greatly influenced the course of history. These molecules provided the impetus for early exploration, and made possible the voyages of discovery that ensued. The molecules resulted in grand feats of engineering and spurred advances in medicine and law; they determined what we now eat, drink, and wear. A change as small as the position of an atom can lead to enormous alterations in the properties of a substance-which, in turn, can result in great historical shifts.With lively prose and an eye for colorful and unusual details, Penny Le Couteur and Jay Burreson offer a novel way to understand the shaping of civilization and the workings of our contemporary world.

    This is volume 5, chapter 25 of a series of books written by the Baron Macaulay (1800-1859) and published after his death.To quote from the preface - 'I HAVE thought it right to publish that portion of the continuation of the "History of England" which was fairly transcribed and revised by Lord Macaulay. It is given to the world precisely as it was left: no connecting link has been added; no reference verified; no authority sought for or examined. It would indeed have been possible, with the help I might have obtained from his friends, to have supplied much that is wanting; but I preferred, and I believe the public will prefer, that the last thoughts of the great mind passed away from among us should be preserved sacred from any touch but his own. Besides the revised manuscript, a few pages containing the first rough sketch of the last two months of William's reign are all that is left. From this I have with some difficulty deciphered the account of the death of William. No attempt has been made to join it on to the preceding part, or to supply the corrections which would have been given by the improving hand of the author. But, imperfect as it must be, I believe it will be received with pleasure and interest as a fit conclusion to the life of his great hero.'
