Summary

Many fishermen will acknowledge that the brown trout (Salmo trutta) and the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) are the world’s most intriguing, beautiful and noble fish. Having evolved nearly fifty million years ago in the Eocene epoch, these two species are close genetic cousins and descendants that can be found in oceans, rivers, lakes, and streams across the entire world. The Brown Trout-Atlantic Salmon Nexus is a complete historical, scientific, artistic, culinary, and practical guide to understanding and appreciating these remarkable fish. Veteran author, guide, and adventurist Matthew Supinski first highlights the evolution and history of the brown trout, from its origins in Europe and the Eastern Hemisphere, to its first North American transplanting in 1883, to its spread across the globe. He then dives into the scientific and angling brilliance of the brown trout/Atlantic salmon lineage praising the two species’ remarkable adaptability and resilience. And finally, chapters on fly-fishing tactics, fly patterns, artistic appreciation, and culinary/foraging opportunities where they are found throughout the world, will give readers all the information they need to catch, admire and appreciate this magnificent piscatorial legacy. With more than 150 stunning photos, The Brown Trout-Atlantic Salmon Salmo Nexus is a must-have for every passionate fisherman, admirer, artist and culinary naturalist connoisseur to enjoy.

    Claude Shannon was a tinkerer, a playful wunderkind, a groundbreaking polymath, and a digital pioneer whose insights made the Information Age possible. He constructed fire-breathing trumpets and customized unicycles, outfoxed Vegas casinos, and built juggling robots, but he also wrote the seminal text of the digital revolution. That work allowed scientists to measure and manipulate information as objectively as any physical object. His work gave mathematicians and engineers the tools to bring that world to pass.Now, Jimmy Soni and Rob Goodman bring Claude Shannon's story to life. It's the story of a small-town boy from Michigan whose career stretched from the age of room-sized computers powered by gears and string to the age of the Apple desktop. It's the story of the origins of information in the tunnels of MIT and the "idea factory" of Bell Labs, in the "scientists' war" with Nazi Germany, and in the work of Shannon's collaborators and rivals. It's the story of Shannon's life as an often reclusive, always playful genius. With access to Shannon's family and friends, A Mind At Play explores the life and times of this singular innovator and creative genius.

    Por primera vez se reúnen, en una publicación, los principales exponentes de la geografía contemporánea, como Brian J. L. Berry, Neil Wrigley, Richard Shearmur, Luc Anselin y Jim Simmons con el objetivo de analizar el pasado, presente y futuro de la geografía aplicada a las actividades comerciales y de servicios. Participan también destacados estudiosos mexicanos como Carlos Garrocho, José Antonio Álvarez Lobato, Tania Chávez y Zochitl Flores quienes abordan el  contexto de las estructuras urbanas, vinculados a los avances en el análisis espacial, orientados a las actividades terciarias en el espacio intra-urbano, particularmente en ciudades mexicanas.
    
    Los autores analizan casos de estudio con el objetivo de explorar el futuro de la geografía comercial dentro de las ciudades, centrando su atención en las actividades terciarias. Además, el trabajo muestra que en realidad no parece haber un consenso hacia el significado de la geografía comercial. Los autores señalan que los usos del término clúster se refieren a empresas aglomeradas terciarias y destacan que un clúster es la colocación de las entidades económicas independientes relacionadas de alguna manera, pero no están obligados por un solo propietario o administración específica, junto con la proximidad a los mercados de trabajo, el acceso a los clientes y los proveedores, reducir los costos de búsqueda de los consumidores, el seguimiento de los competidores, la disponibilidad de infraestructura y tierras a utilizar, la planificación, etcétera.

    For many of the 40 million Americans who undergo anesthesia each year, it is a source of great fear and fascination. In Counting Backwards, Dr. Henry Jay Przybylo—an anesthesiologist with more than thirty years of experience—has written an unforgettable account of the routine procedure's daily dramas and fundamental mysteries. Przybylo has administered anesthesia more than 30,000 times in his career—erasing consciousness, denying memory, and immobilizing the body before reversing all of these effects—on newborn babies, screaming toddlers and sullen teenagers, his own son, and even a gorilla. With compassion and candor, he weaves his experiences into intimate stories that explore the nature of consciousness, the politics of pain relief, and the wonder of modern medicine. 
    Through its intense and humane tales of mistakes, near-disasters, life-saving successes, and moments of grace, Counting Backwards shines a light on one of the most fascinating but unexplored corners of the medical world.
