Rethinking Aging Growing Old and Living Well in an Overtreated Society
Nortin M. Hadler, "Rethinking Aging: Growing Old and Living Well in an Overtreated Society"
English | 2011 | ISBN: 0807835064, 1469652102 | 272 pages | PDF | 10.3 MB
For those fortunate enough to reside in the developed world, death before reaching a ripe old age is a tragedy, not a fact of life. Although aging and dying are not diseases, older Americans are subject to the most egregious marketing in the name of "successful aging" and "long life," as if both are commodities. In Rethinking Aging, Nortin M. Hadler examines health-care choices offered to aging Americans and argues that too often the choices serve to profit the provider rather than benefit the recipient, leading to the medicalization of everyday ailments and blatant overtreatment. Rethinking Aging forewarns and arms readers with evidence-based insights that facilitate health-promoting decision making.

Reliability Analysis and Prediction with Warranty Data Issues, Strategies, and Methods
Reliability Analysis and Prediction with Warranty data: Issues, Strategies, and Methods By Bharatendra K. Rai, Nanua Singh
2009 | 24 Pages | ISBN: 1439803250 | PDF | 1 MB
Through simple, practical approaches, Reliability Analysis and Prediction with Warranty data: Issues, Strategies, and Methods helps Six Sigma black belts and engineers successfully interpret warranty data to make accurate predictions. It discusses how to use this data to define and analyze field problems, provides guidelines for discovering the root causes for warranty cost reduction, and explores issues associated with warranty data and the approaches to overcome them. The first part of the book presents an introduction to reliability analysis and prediction using warranty data and highlights the issues involved. The second section offers strategies and methods for obtaining component-level nonparametric hazard rate estimates that provide important clues toward probable root causes and that help reduce warranty costs. Focusing on the prediction of warranty performance, the final part deals with methodologies that assess the impact of changes in warranty limits and forecast warranty performance. This user-friendly book shows how warranty data can support various levels of decision making to achieve reliable outcomes. Easily understood even for those with minimal statistical background, it includes objectives and summaries in each chapter to enable quick review of the topics.

Protection of Materials and Structures from the Space Environment ICPMSE-7
Jacob I. Kleiman, "Protection of Materials and Structures from the Space Environment: ICPMSE-7"
English | 2006 | ISBN: 1402042817, 1580625665 | 476 pages | PDF | 10.1 MB
The effects of various space environment factors like atomic oxygen, vacuum ultraviolet radiation, charging, micrometeoroids, meteoroid showers, etc. on materials and structures in various orbits are discussed. In addition the ways to prevent these effects or reduce them through protection by coatings or modification of affected surfaces are considered in the book. The discussions on development of predictive models of material erosion that will allow the materials engineers and designers of future spacecraft to evaluate materials' behaviour is continued from the past meetings.

Proof and Knowledge in Mathematics
Michael Detlefsen, "Proof and Knowledge in Mathematics"
English | ISBN: 0415068053 | | 256 pages | PDF | 16 MB
These questions arise from any attempt to discover an epistemology for mathematics. This collection of essays considers various questions concerning the nature of justification in mathematics and possible sources of that justification. Among these are the question of whether mathematical justification is a priori or a posteriori in character, whether logical and mathematical differ, and if formalization plays a significant role in mathematical justification,

Producing Liquid Fuels from Coal Prospects and Policy Issues
Producing Liquid Fuels from Coal: Prospects and Policy Issues By James T. Bartis
2008 | 198 Pages | ISBN: 0833045113 | PDF | 2 MB
Sometime during 2008 this book was written, in response to the recent rapid runup in oil prices. The perspective is that of the US government, more specifically the US Air Force. It reflects the reality that the US armed forces need a huge amount of fuel every day to conduct their missions. And within the armed forces, the greatest need is by the air force, unsurprisingly.The book focuses on coal to liquid technology. Based in no small part on the large amounts of coal throughout the world; estimated at 3 times the equivalent of global oil. Plus, and this is crucial, the US possesses considerable reserves of coal, unlike oil. The armed forces need a secure supply.The history of CTL is summarised. A lot of work was done by the South African oil company Sasol, during apartheid, when South Africa faced an oil boycott. Other CTL efforts are described. Notably the shale oil venture in Colorado during the 80s.We see that all current CTL methods are expensive. It is estimated that for a CTL project to be viable inside the US, oil prices need to be at least $50-60 per barrel. Presciently, the book remarks that price volatility also hampers the projects. Today, January 2009, oil is around$40, and has swung wildly from a high of $147 in 2008. None of this is encouraging for CTL.Another aspect about CTL is that a lot of CO2 is produced, per barrel equivalent of output. A serious problem that contributes to global warming, unless the CO2 is sequestered or neutralised.The book does not require a degree in petroleum engineering. It is aimed at a general audience, and is unclassified.

Older Adults' Views on Death
Victor G. Cicirelli, "Older Adults' Views on Death"
English | 2002 | ISBN: 0826170129, 0826170137 | 400 pages | PDF | 20.5 MB
During previous work on end-of-life decision preferences among older adults, Cicirelli (developmental and aging psychology, Purdue U.) was struck by the great diversity of their views regarding the issues involved. He looks at the views of people aged 70 and older, investigating whether their views contribute to their adjustment or maladjustment in the latter portion of their life, or might act as a constructive force to help them prepare for their eventual dying and death.
