Collagenases  By  Warren Hoeffler
Collagenases By Warren Hoeffler
1999 | 269 Pages | ISBN: 1570595623 | PDF | 4 MB
Collagenases are an important subfamily of matrix metalloproteinases utilizing native collagens as a substrate. This book reviews a current knowledge of the structures and functions of collagenases and the roles they play in development, tumor metastasis, and tissue remodeling during wound healing. This review comes at a time when new collagenases are being discovered, such as collagenases, rather than all matrix metalloproteinases so that a more thorough examination of the function of this crucial set of enzymes in a variety of systems can be achieved. Because of the great deal of work that has gone into understanding this group of enzymes, the findings in this area may also serve as useful paradigms for work in related areas.

Chinese Herbal Medicine Modern Applications of Traditional Formulas
Chinese Herbal Medicine: Modern Applications of Traditional Formulas By Chongyun Liu, Angela Tseng, Sue Yang
2004 | 805 Pages | ISBN: 0849315689 | PDF | 11 MB
The charts and figures in the ebook are unviewable. For instance, look at the first table in Chapter 34 through iPhone kindle edition. Can't read the print. When you zoom in, it becomes a blur. Almost all the tables in this book are like that. Also the Pinyin-English appendix reference does not hyper-link to any herb reference like most other kindle reference books. This one is just black and white text. It looks like someone just scanned this book in real fast and sold it as a kindle book. Low usability, low readability. The text formatting in the rest of the book is pretty poor. Every kindle book I've bought so far has better quality than this, even a $3.19 kindle book. I gave it 2 stars because the book looks like it has good material, if one can read it. :)

Biology and Chemistry of Jerusalem Artichoke Helianthus tuberosus L
Biology and Chemistry of Jerusalem Artichoke: Helianthus tuberosus L. By Stanley J. Kays, Stephen F. Nottingham
2007 | 498 Pages | ISBN: 1420044958 | PDF | 9 MB
A unique plant on many levels, the distinctive properties of the Jerusalem artichoke, or Helianthus tuberosus L., present novel answers to some of today's most pressing problems. The potential of Jerusalem artichoke as a source for inulin, a fructose polymer that may provide dietary health benefits for obesity, diabetes, and several other health issues and the possible use of the crop for biofuels are drawing tremendous recent interest. With its ready cultivation and minimal pest and disease problems, Jerusalem artichoke is an underutilized resource that possesses the potential to meet major health and energy challenges. A comprehensive, up-to-date reference, Biology and Chemistry of Jerusalem Artichoke presents the unique biological and chemical properties that distinguish it from other crops. Citing a diverse cross-section of references, it reviews the history, classification, morphology, and anatomy of the plant. It details inulin chemistry addressing properties and structure, extraction, and modification using microbes, enzymes, and a wide range of chemical processes. The book examines the use of Jerusalem artichokes as a biofuel and the role of inulin derived from the crop in combating obesity and diabetes, as well as promoting bone, blood, bowel, and immune health. A comprehensive chapter addresses genetic resources, breeding, breeding methods, hybridization, and the heritability of important traits. The book details developmental biology in terms of maximizing yield and determining resource allocation as well as controlling pests and disease. It concludes with practical information on agronomic methods, storage, the economics of crop production, and future prospects for utilization. Gathering a wealth of information into a single volume and drawing on the authors' 25 years of research, Biology and Chemistry of Jerusalem Artichoke provides the most comprehensive resource to date on this extremely useful crop.

Barron's How to Prepare for the TOEFL11th Edition
Barron's How to Prepare for the TOEFL11th Edition By Pamela Sharpe Ph.D.
2004 | 735 Pages | ISBN: 0764175785 | PDF | 58 MB
I use this book in my advanced college ESL class. My students didn't have to take the TOEFL, so I thought I would use the exercises for class. However, they are a little scattered and the answer key for each lesson in the back isn't necessarily easy to locate. I am able to gleen some extra exercises for class once in awhile, but I really wanted to use it as sort of a workbook for them to practice, but given that it isn't user friendly, I had to abandon that idea.

Analysis of Derivatives for the CFA Program
Analysis of Derivatives for the CFA Program By Don M. Chance
2002 | 672 Pages | ISBN: 0935015930 | PDF | 33 MB
The book is intended to provide the derivatives analysis portion of the CFA curriculum, and is intended to communicate a practical risk management approach to derivatives for the investment generalist.Derivatives are financial instruments that offer a return based on the return of some other asset. Exchange-traded contracts have standard terms and features and are traded usually at a futures or options exchange. OTC contracts are created by two parties anywhere else. In a futures contract, the futures exchange guarantees to each party that if the other fails to pay, the exchange will. The forward contract is an agreement between two parties to transfer (sell/buy) an asset at a future date at a price established at the start. It is largely a private and unregulated market.A swap typically is like an agreement to buy at a future date, paying a fixed amount and receiving something of unknown future value. The most common use of a swap is a situation in which a corporation, currently borrowing at a floating rate, enters into a swap that commits it to making a series of interest payments to the swap counter party at a fixed rate, while receiving payments from the swap counter party at a rate related to the floating rate at which it is making loan payments. The floating components cancel, creating a conversion of the original floating-rate loan to a fixed-rate loan.And on it goes, with lots of detail on valuing and use of derivatives.

Aging Nation The Economics and Politics of Growing Older in America
James H. Schulz, Robert H. Binstock, "Aging Nation: The Economics and Politics of Growing Older in America"
English | 2006 | ISBN: 027598415X, 0801888646 | 296 pages | True PDF | 2.8 MB
With the impending retirement of some 76 million baby boomers in a period of huge government deficits, public anxiety about the social and economic health of an aging nation is widespread. The policy debates are contentious―from deciding who should receive limited subsidized housing and medical services to the ongoing battle over "saving" Social Security and other entitlement programs. Some policy makers and pundits forecast disaster: elderly people will be put out to pasture with inadequate health care and financial resources, and a crumbling social welfare infrastructure will implode under the strain of intergenerational conflict.
