  • Beatrice

    Henry Rider Haggard

    Natuur De herfst middag was vervagen in de avond. Het was bewolkt weer, maar de wolken had verzacht en gebroken omhoog. Nu waren zij verloren in langzaam donker blauw. De zee was perfect en volkomen nog. Het leek om te slapen, maar in haar slaap gewaxt het nog steeds met de stijgende tij. Het oog kon niet markeren de langzame stijging, maar Beatrice, permanent op het verste punt van de hond rotsen, werkeloos merkte op dat het lang bruin onkruid die klampte zich over hun zijden vast begon op te heffen als het water nam hun gewicht, tot eindelijk de delicate patroon dreef uit en als een vrouw haar de groene diepte van de zee leggen. Ondertussen groeide een mist dichte en zacht op de rustige wateren. Het werd niet opgeblazen uit het westen, het gewoon groeide als de schemering, maken de stilte nog meer Stille en bevlekken weg de contouren van het land. Beatrice kreeg studeren het zeewier en keek naar het verzamelen van deze wollige hosts.

  • Walden

    Henry David Thoreau

    Natuur An American masterwork in praise of nature, self-reliance, and the simple life "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." In 1845, the transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau moved from his home in the town of Concord, Massachusetts, to a small cabin he built by hand on the shores of Walden Pond. He spent the next two years alone in the woods, learning to live self-sufficiently and to take his creative and moral inspiration from nature. Part memoir, part philosophical treatise, part environmental manifesto, Walden is Thoreau’s inspirational account of those extraordinary years and one of the most influential books ever written.
  • Birds of Western Australia & the Northern Territory

    Pam Osborn

    Natuur A Few Feathers From The West “She’s only a woman.” Pam was wading through the shallows of Perth’s Swan River photographing birds when a couple of passing lycra-clad cyclists opined on the foolishness of hand holding such a long lens without a tripod. “She’s only a woman” was their gratuitous observation. Despite the pedallers’ doubts on the capability of female photographers, many of the images in this book were hand held with that long lens. Conversely, many also were taken with a gimbal mount on a tripod. This book is a celebration of the wondrous birdlife we have in Western Australia. Images range from Perth’s Swan River, Rottnest Island, the Houtman Abrolhos, Shark Bay, Cape Range, the Ningaloo Coast, Broome and the Kakadu wetlands. If you find any errors in species identification, have some mercy. We are mere shutter jockeys not ornithologists. All errors are entirely are our own and feedback is most welcome as we will update and correct this book from time to t

  • On the Origin of Species

    Charles Darwin

    Geschiedenis van de wetenschap Can we doubt that individuals having any advantage, however slight, over others, would have the best chance of surviving and of procreating their kind?' In the Origin of Species (1859) Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. His insistence on the immense length of the past and on the abundance of life-forms, present and extinct, dislodged man from his central position in creation and called into question the role of the Creator. He showed that new species are achieved by natural selection, and that absence of plan is an inherent part of the evolutionary process. Darwin's prodigious reading, experimentation, and observations on his travels fed into his great work, which draws on material from the Galapagos Islands to rural Staffordshire, from English back gardens to colonial encounters.

  • UFO

    Louis Byun

    Wetenschap en natuur Believe or Not??!! While technically a UFO refers to any unidentified flying object, in modern popular culture the term UFO has generally become synonymous with alien spacecraft; however, the term ETV (ExtraTerrestrial Vehicle) is sometimes used to separate this explanation of UFOs from totally earthbound explanations. This eBook includes video and interactive graphic materials. (CNN) -- Deep down on the bottom of the Baltic Sea, Swedish treasure hunters think they have made the find of a lifetime. The problem is, they're not exactly sure what it is they've uncovered. Out searching for shipwrecks at a secret location between Sweden and Finland, the deep-sea salvage company Ocean Explorer captured an incredible image more than 80 meters below the water's surface. At first glance, team leader and commercial diver Peter Lindberg joked that his crew had just discovered an unidentified flying object, or UFO.

  • De uitdaging van het denken

    Baptist Vermeulen

    Wetenschap en natuur De uitdaging van het denken biedt een zeer toegankelijke inleiding in de Westerse filosofie aan de hand van een thematische behandeling van de klassieke onderwerpen: kennistheorie, metafysica, ontologie, logica, wetenschapsfilosofie, ethiek, sociale en politieke filosofie en esthetica. Van elk onderwerp wordt helder uitgelegd wat het kernvraagstuk is, wat de historische context is en welke filosoof de belangrijkste bijdrage eraan heeft geleverd. Vervolgens wordt van elk thema de actuele context aangetoond, veelal aan de hand van een onderwerp uit de huidige maatschappelijke discussie (met als eindpunt de huidige 'internetdemocratie'). De uitdaging van het denken probeert de lezer ertoe aan te zetten zelf de praktijk van het filosoferen op zich te nemen en aan de hand daarvan doordachte opinies te formuleren over de zaken die hem of haar werkelijk raken. Door middel van kennis, maar vooral van toepassing ('Wat kan ik hier zélf mee?') en met als doel bewustwording en inzicht.

  • Food Security, Farming, and Climate Change to 2050

    Gerald C. Nelson, Mark W. Rosegrant, Amanda Palazzo, Ian Gray, Christina Ingersoll, Richard Robertson, Simla Tokgoz, Tingju Zhu, Timothy B. Sulser, Claudia Ringler, Siwa Msangi & Liangzhi You

    Aardwetenschappen As the global population grows and incomes in poor countries rise, so too, will the demand for food, placing additional pressure on sustainable food production. Climate change adds a further challenge, as changes in temperature and precipitation threaten agricultural productivity and the capacity to feed the world’s population. This study assesses how serious the danger to food security might be and suggests some steps policymakers can take to remedy the situation. Using various modeling techniques, the authors project 15 different future scenarios for food security through 2050. Each scenario involves an alternative combination of potential population and income growth and climate change. The authors also examine the specific test case of a hypothetical extended drought in South Asia, to demonstrate the possible effects of increased climate variability on a particular world region. They conclude that the negative effects of climate change on food security can be counteracted by bro

  • The Qur'an & Modern Science

    Dr. Maurice Bucaille

    Wetenschap en natuur There is no human work in existence that contains statements as far beyond the level of knowledge of its time as the Qur’an. Scientific opinions comparable to those in the Qur’an are the result of modern knowledge. In the commentaries to translations of the Qur’an that have appeared in European languages, I have only been able to find scattered and vague references to them. Nor do commentators writing in Arabic provide a complete study of the aspects of the Qur’an that deal with scientific matters. This is why the idea of a comprehensive study of the problem appealed to me. In addition to this, a comparative study of similar data contained in the Bible (Old Testament and Gospels) seemed desirable. Thus, a research project was developed from the comparison of certain passages in the Holy Scriptures of each monotheistic religion with modern scientific knowledge. The project resulted in the publication of a book entitled, The Bible, the Qur'an and Science. The first French ed

A study of the available evidence will challenge you and much of what you assumed to be true. "Now we are discovering that there is a highly-sophisticated black-ops weaponization of free energy technology and it was responsible for the bizarre, low-temperature pulverization of the Twin Towers. Dr. Judy Wood has pieced together the physical evidence and Andrew Johnson has highlighted who is working to silence or smear whom, as the powers that be rush to impede or at least contain the dissemination of these startling findings." - Conrado Salas Cano, M.S. in Physics
  • The Notebooks of Leonardo Da Vinci

    Leonardo da Vinci

    Wetenschap en natuur Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (Italian pronunciation: [leoˈnardo da vˈvintʃi] About this sound pronunciation (help·info); April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519, Old Style) was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer. His genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance Man, a man of "unquenchable curiosity" and "feverishly inventive imagination". He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived. According to art historian Helen Gardner, the scope and depth of his interests were without precedent and "his mind and personality seem to us superhuman, the man himself mysterious and remote". Marco Rosci states that while there is much speculation about Leonardo, his vi

He conceived of the idea during the voyage of the Beagle while still in South America, before he had seen a coral island, and wrote it out as HMS Beagle crossed the Pacific Ocean, completing his draft by November 1835. At the time there was great scientific interest in the way that coral reefs formed, and Captain Robert FitzRoy's orders from the Admiraltyincluded the investigation of an atoll as an important scientific aim of the voyage.

  • Alternative to Darwinism and Creationism Based on Free Will

    Shaun Johnston

    Levenswetenschappen Do we have free will? Answering this question using logic drives us into paradox. Instead, the author takes us to a world where people know they really do have free will. As a result their science takes a different direction, leading them to an evolutionary theory totally different from ours. In this theory, is there intelligent design? Yes. Is it the work of a supernatural agent? No. Instead, through an audacious surmise, the author arrives at a theory of evolution close to common sense, that supports traditional thinking about the self. Who should care? Anyone whose work affects the opinions others have of themselves. And the humanities generally, under threat from encroachment on their turf by the sciences, all of whose specialties depend on traditional notions of free will. This ingenious story can serve as a model for how the balance between the arts and sciences can be reset.

    Wetenschap en natuur During the Federal war in the United States a new and very influential club was established in the city of Baltimore, Maryland. It is well known with what energy the military instinct was developed amongst that nation of shipowners, shopkeepers, and mechanics. Mere tradesmen jumped their counters to become extempore captains, colonels, and generals without having passed the Military School at West Point; they soon rivalled their colleagues of the old continent, and, like them, gained victories by dint of lavishing bullets, millions, and men. But where Americans singularly surpassed Europeans was in the science of ballistics, or of throwing massive weapons by the use of an engine; not that their arms attained a higher degree of perfection, but they were of unusual dimensions, and consequently of hitherto unknown ranges. The English, French, and Prussians have nothing to learn about flank, running, enfilading, or point blank firing; but their cannon, howitzers, and mortars are mere pock

  • The Programming Model Of Creation

    James Haines

    Levenswetenschappen The Programming Model of Reality How God Can Speak the Worlds into Being Excerpt from the book: "Most ideas that propose how God created the universe begin with the basic entities, such as light, energy, and matter, already created. The creation of the basic entities themselves (“out of nothing” as the Hebrew word “bara” in Genesis 1:1 indicates) is left as a matter of faith: that God can do it, even if we have no idea how. This remains a good, solid foundation and will always be true: that God is able to do more than we know; that His limitless resources and abilities are accepted by us through our trust of His Word, through faith which He gives us (Ephesians 2:8-10). However, the last half-century has offered us a new window into the realm of “creating things out of nothing” (Ex Nihilo), by using thoughts expressed as command words. So this model runs to the opposite extreme. Rather than avoiding the questions of “how matter and energy were created”, this model embra

  • The Special Theory of Relativity

    Natuurkunde The present book is intended, as far as possible, to give an exact insight into the theory of Relativity to those readers who, from a general scientific and philosophical point of view, are interested in the theory, but who are not conversant with the mathematical apparatus of theoretical physics. The work presumes a standard of education corresponding to that of a university matriculation examination, and, despite the shortness of the book, a fair amount of patience and force of will on the part of the reader. The author has spared himself no pains in his endeavor to present the main ideas in the simplest and most intelligible form, and on the whole, in the sequence and connection in which they actually originated. In the interest of clearness, it appeared to me inevitable that I should repeat myself frequently, without paying the slightest attention to the elegance of the presentation.

  • All Around the Moon

    Jules Verne

    Wetenschap en natuur A few years ago the world was suddenly astounded by hearing of an experiment of a most novel and daring nature, altogether unprecedented in the annals of science. In accordance with the Cambridge men's note, the cannon intended to discharge the projectile was to be planted in some country not further than 28° north or south from the equator, so that it might be aimed vertically at the Moon in the zenith. The bullet was to be animated with an initial velocity of 12,000 yards to the second. It was to be fired off on the night of December 1st, at thirteen minutes and twenty seconds before eleven o'clock, precisely. Four days afterwards it was to hit the Moon, at the very moment that she reached her perigee, that is to say, her nearest point to the Earth, about 228,000 miles distant. The leading members of the Club, namely President Barbican, Secretary Marston, Major Elphinstone and General Morgan, forming the executive committee, held several meetings to discuss the shape and material o

    Roald Amundsen

    Aardwetenschappen It is a geographical book. We have thus taken observations as near to the Pole as was humanly possible with the instruments at our disposal. We had a sextant and artificial horizon calculated for a radius of 8 kilometres. On December 17 we were ready to go. We raised on the spot a little circular tent, and planted above it the Norwegian flag and the Fram’s pennant. The Norwegian camp at the South Pole was given the name of 'Polheim'. The distance from our winter quarters to the Pole was about 870 English miles, so that we had covered on an average 15 1/2 miles a day. We began the return journey on December 17. The weather was unusually favourable, and this made our return considerably easier than the march to the Pole. We arrived at 'Framheim', our winter quarters, in January, 1912, with two sledges and eleven dogs, all well. On the homeward journey we covered an average of 22 1/2 miles a day. The principal result —­ besides the attainment of the Pole —­ is the determination o
