This research addresses communication security in wireless sensor networks by developing the Hierarchical Key Establishment Scheme (HIKES) which provides these networks with the basic security requirements and evaluating its effectiveness by implementing on an a routing platform. HIKES allows the central authority to empower sensors to issue secrets keys to local sensors for their communications. HIKES uses a novel key escrow scheme that enables any sensor node to represent the central authority to generate all the secret keys and authenticate other sensors. HIKES localizes secret key issuance, thereby reducing the communication overhead. The key escrow scheme provides HIKES with a large a addressing mechanism. HIKES also provides source and data authentication, and is robust against most known attacks. A hierarchical routing mechanism called Secure Hierarchical Energy-Efficient Routing protocol (SHEER) that implements HIKES is proposed. Simulations have shown that HIKES provides an energy-efficient and scalable solution to the key management problem. HIKES also has low storage, and high address flexibility. Simulations show that SHEER is energy-efficient and is scalable.

Hope Justman Guide to Hiking China's Old Road to Shu

3102 руб.
This is the first guidebook specifically written for people who speak no Chinese but would like to go hiking on their own in China off the beaten track. The hikes are through the beautiful Qinling and Daba Mountains in Sichuan and Shaanxi Province along the few remaining stretches of one of China's old imperial roads known as the Road to Shu. There are nineteen hikes, most in the six-hour range, but some two-and three-day hikes as well. There are maps, hotel and restaurant listings, specific information on bus and train travel, and Chinese phrases to help you secure lodgings on your own. There are five handy pages of local menu selections in Chinese, as well.Also included is some unusual information you won't find in any other guidebook: Is it safe to drink Bad Weather Beer or eat in a restaurant that advertises "Englishmen delicious"? When staying in a Chinese farmhouse should you wash your face and feet in the same basin? The most important question though is: How cheaply can you do this trip? The answer is for as little as $25 a day in cheap lodgings or for $80 a day in costlier ones.

The Allegheny Pilot, first published in 1855, is an early travel guide to western Pennsylvania's rivers and navigable waterways, complete with detailed maps, notes, and charts. Originally written for lumber raftsmen and even considered to be the "Lumberman's Bible," it remains an important document on the original path of the Allegheny and its tributaries, which have since been changed by the construction of the Kinzua Dam and other man-made alterations to the landscape. The book benefits not only from Babbitt's own knowledge, experience, and research on the Allegheny, but also from his having "spent much time in conversing with many of the oldest settlers along the river, collecting from them, orally, many historical facts besides those pertaining to the navigation of the river." The Allegheny Pilot is a fascinating look at a transient historical landscape in a time when the beginnings of modern industrialization began to push westward across the state's frontiers, irrevocably changing them.

Plants are all around us, and while we often reflect on the majesty of a great forest or the beauty of our gardens, how often do we notice the understated and varied wildflowers in the meadows, in the swamps, in the woods, and even along roadsides? What about all the woody plants and shrubs that so often appear as the backgrounds in our daily walks and hikes? Did you know that all of these plants and wildflowers have histories, some even playing a vital role in our lives and in our legacies?In Plant Folklore, author, photographer, and naturalist Connie L. Taylor shares over one hundred short stories and histories of the flora that surround our daily lives, exploring their folklore and explaining how our ancestors used them. Not only an entertaining history of the myths and truths about some of the herbaceous plants that grow across the country and especially in the hills of Appalachia, this collection of concise introductions also offers outdoor enthusiasts and budding naturalists tips and advice they can use to identify blooms and collect wildflower seeds or plants with respect and care.Plants are living histories, and each one has a story to tell. From hidden wildflowers to humble shrubs, the plants in our lives and along our hikes have at times been as essential to our survival as they are beautiful and fascinating. Plant Folklore will help you appreciate these important legacies as you learn about their histories, uses, and cultivation.

3102 руб.
Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2010 in the subject Geography / Earth Science - Meteorology, Aeronomy, Climatology, grade: Sehr Gut, University of Hamburg (Institute of Oceanography), language: English, abstract: The erosion of Saharan soil is the World's largest annual source of mineral dust aerosols, resulting in a deposition of more than 40% of the global atmospheric dust into the North Atlantic (NA). By changing the atmospheric opacity, mineral dust can alter the shortwave radiative forcing at the surface of the ocean, altering the ocean mixed layer heat budget and therefore affecting the sea surface temperature (SST). Moreover, changes of the total amount of energy received at the ocean surface have an impact on the ocean circulation. In this thesis we combine several satellite observations, in-situ radiation measurements, a 1D mixed layer model of the ocean, and various versions of a 3D general ocean circulation model, to study the impact of Saharan dust on the circulation of the NA. A buoyancy source generated by realistic dust-induced shortwave flux anomalies is imposed in the eastern NA and the differences between this simulation and an unperturbed one are investigated in terms of the ocean dynamical adjustment and changes in the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC). A joint analysis of aerosol optical depth retrievals from the MODIS sensor and SST from the TMI sensor for the period 2000-2006 shows a decrease in SST of 0.2° to 0.4°C sim...

Donald Wright R. African Americans in the Colonial Era. From African Origins through the American Revolution

2088.84 руб.
What are the origins of slavery and race-based prejudice in the mainland American colonies? How did the Atlantic slave trade operate to supply African labor to colonial America? How did African-American culture form and evolve? How did the American Revolution affect men and women of African descent? Previous editions of this work depicted African-Americans in the American mainland colonies as their contemporaries saw them: as persons from one of the four continents who interacted economically, socially, and politically in a vast, complex Atlantic world. It showed how the society that resulted in colonial America reflected the mix of Atlantic cultures and that a group of these people eventually used European ideas to support creation of a favorable situation for those largely of European descent, omitting Africans, who constituted their primary labor force. In this fourth edition of African Americans in the Colonial Era: From African Origins through the American Revolution, acclaimed scholar Donald R. Wright offers new interpretations to provide a clear understanding of the Atlantic slave trade and the nature of the early African-American experience. This revised edition incorporates the latest data, a fresh Atlantic perspective, and an updated bibliographical essay to thoroughly explore African-Americans’ African origins, their experience crossing the Atlantic, and their existence in colonial America in a broadened, more nuanced way.

The philosophies of HENRY DAVID THOREAU (1817-1862)-hero to environmentalists and ecologists, profound thinker on humanity's happiness-have greatly influenced the American character, and his writings on human nature, materialism, and the natural world continue to be of profound import today. In this essay, first published in the Atlantic Monthly in 1862 and vital to any appreciation of the great man's work, Thoreau explores:. the joys and necessities of long afternoon walks. how spending time in untrammeled fields and woods soothes the spirit. how Nature guides us on our walks. the lure of the wild for writers and artists. why "all good things are wild and free". and more.ALSO FROM COSIMO: Thoreau's Walden and Civil Disobedience

This long out-of-print book is reprinted here because in Chapter 30 entitled “Trumping Up the Boardwalk”, starting on page 379, it reveals the compromises President-Elect Donald Trump made and had to make with the Mafia that was in control of Atlantic City to get his foot in the door. It reveals how Trump was able to use his connections to get in control of Atlantic City casinos without putting in a dime of his own money. These reports have been recently confirmed by The New York Times. It also reveals why Trump had to keep his strange alliance with the obviously corrupt Governor of the State of New Jersey.“I've said it before and I will repeat it again to organized crime. Keep your filthy hands off of Atlantic City! Keep the Hell out of our state.”New Jersey Governor, June 2, 1977 (the date he signed the Casino Control Act)This warning was in vain. Powerful crime families were already muscling their way into Atlantic City. Their methods were extortion, bribery and when necessary murder.

11001.32 руб.
Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 188. Diversity of Hydrothermal Systems on Slow Spreading Ocean Ridges presents a multidisciplinary overview of the remarkable emerging diversity of hydrothermal systems on slow spreading ocean ridges in the Atlantic, Indian, and Arctic oceans. When hydrothermal systems were first found on the East Pacific Rise and other Pacific Ocean ridges beginning in the late 1970s, the community consensus held that the magma delivery rate of intermediate to fast spreading was necessary to support black smoker-type high-temperature systems and associated chemosynthetic ecosystems and polymetallic sulfide deposits. Contrary to that consensus, hydrothermal systems not only occur on slow spreading ocean ridges but, as reported in this volume, are generally larger, exhibit different chemosynthetic ecosystems, produce larger mineral deposits, and occur in a much greater diversity of geologic settings than those systems in the Pacific. The full diversity of hydrothermal systems on slow spreading ocean ridges, reflected in the contributions to this volume, is only now emerging and opens an exciting new frontier for ocean ridge exploration, including Processes of heat and chemical transfer from the Earth's mantle and crust via slow spreading ocean ridges to the oceans The major role of detachment faulting linking crust and mantle in hydrothermal circulation Chemical reaction products of mantle involvement including serpentinization, natural hydrogen, abiotic methane, and hydrocarbon synthesis Generation of large polymetallic sulfide deposits hosted in ocean crust and mantle Chemosynthetic vent communities hosted in the diverse settings The readership for this volume will include schools, universities, government laboratories, and scientific societies in developed and developing nations, including over 150 nations that have ratified the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2015 in the subject Women Studies / Gender Studies, grade: 1, , course: Gender, Law, and Public Policy, language: English, abstract: In 2005, the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) Heinz College of Public Policy published a study entitled "Recommendations for Implementing an Inclusive City and County Board Appointment Policy." That study, based on previous research by the Pittsburgh Coro Center for Civic Leadership, had two objectives: to determine the demographics of boards, authorities, and commissions (BACs) in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County, and to issue recommendations on how to make appointments to BACs in the area more transparent and inclusive. As a result of the CMU study, the City of Pittsburgh passed Ordinance 35, a fair representation law that followed the study's recommendations. Allegheny County operates under a similar law.It has been ten years since the study and subsequent passage of Ordinance 35. It is the intention of the current research to examine the results of the CMU study, to determine the current demographics of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County BACs, to discover if the passage of Ordinance 35 has indeed improved the representation of women and minorities on BACs, and if not, to provide new recommendations for the City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County to achieve representation in BACs that adequately represents the population of the region.

Abducted from Africa, sold in America.“A deeply affecting record of an extraordinary life”– Daily TelegraphA major literary event: a newly published work from the author of the American classic Their Eyes Were Watching God, with a foreword from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker.This account illuminates the horror and injustices of slavery as it tells the true story of one of the last-known survivors of the Atlantic slave trade.In 1927, Zora Neale Hurston went to Plateau, Alabama, just outside Mobile, to interview eighty-six-year-old Cudjo Lewis, who was abducted from Africa on the last «Black Cargo» ship to arrive in the United States. Of the millions of men, women, and children transported from Africa to America as slaves, Cudjo was then the only person alive to tell the story of this integral part of the nation’s history. Hurston was there to record Cudjo’s firsthand account of the raid that led to his capture and bondage fifty years after the Atlantic slave trade was outlawed in the United States.In 1931, Hurston returned to Plateau, the African-centric community three miles from Mobile founded by Cudjo and other former slaves from his ship. Spending more than three months there, she talked in depth with Cudjo about the details of his life. During those weeks, the young writer and the elderly formerly enslaved man ate peaches and watermelon that grew in the backyard and talked about Cudjo’s past—memories from his childhood in Africa, the horrors of being captured and held in a barracoon for selection by American slavers, the harrowing experience of the Middle Passage packed with more than 100 other souls aboard the Clotilda, and the years he spent in slavery until the end of the Civil War.Based on those interviews, featuring Cudjo’s unique vernacular, and written from Hurston’s perspective with the compassion and singular style that have made her one of the preeminent American authors of the twentieth-century, Barracoon masterfully illustrates the tragedy of slavery and of one life forever defined by it. Offering insight into the pernicious legacy that continues to haunt us all, black and white, this poignant and powerful work is an invaluable contribution to our shared history and culture.

Earth now is dominated by both biogeophysical and anthropogenic processes, as represented in these two images from a simulation of aerosols. Dust (red) from the Sahara sweeps west across the Atlantic Ocean. Sea salt (blue) rises into the atmosphere from winds over the North Atlantic and from a tropical cyclone in the Indian Ocean. Organic and black carbon (green) from biomass burning is notable over the Amazon and Southeast Asia. Plumes of sulfate (white) from fossil fuel burning are particularly prominent over northeastern North America and East Asia. If present trends of dust emissions and fossil fuel burning continues in what we call the Anthropocene epoch, then we could experience high atmospheric CO2 levels leading to unusual warming rarely experienced in Earth’s history. This book focuses on human influences on land, ocean, and the atmosphere, to determine if human activities are operating within or beyond the safe zones of our planet’s biological, chemical, and physical systems. Volume highlights include: • Assessment of civic understanding of Earth and its future • Understanding the role of undergraduate geoscience research and community-driven research on the Anthropocene • Effective communication of science to a broader audience that would include the public, the K-12 science community, or populations underrepresented in the sciences • Public outreach on climate education, geoscience alliance, and scientific reasoning Future Earth is a valuable practical guide for scientists from all disciplines including geoscientists, museum curators, science educators, and public policy makers. This volume was made possible with the support of the National Science Foundation through the National Center for Earth-surface Dynamics (EAR-0120914) and the Future Earth Initiative (DRL-0741760).

This is particularly true of his recent volume, The Yosemite. It is a treasure-house of wonderful pictures of all the changing phases of the Yosemite year -- of flood-time, with "rejoicing flood waterfalls chanting together in jubilee dress;" of Indian summer, and the "brooding, changeful days" that come between it and winter, "when the leaf colors have grown dim and the clouds come and go among the cliffs like living creatures looking for work;" of "the sunbeams streaming through the snowy High Sierra ...

The Mongol-Okhotsk Belt extends from the present Sea of Okhotsk in the northeast to Central Mongolia in the southwest and represents a part of the widespread Central Asian Orogenic Belt. The Mongol-Okhotsk suture zone was generated during the Late Paleozoic to Mid Mesozoic by the subduction of the Mongol-Okhotsk Ocean. The remnant permits to study the enigmatic tectonic evolution of the paleo-ocean. A suitable place for analyzing the geodynamic development of the Mongol-Okhotsk Ocean is given by the Hangai-Hentei basin in Mongolia that is regarded as an accretionary wedge terrane located northwest of the suture zone. This research yielded new data from lithostratigaphic and sedimentological investigations as well as provenance analyses on the Silurian to Carboniferous northern active continental margin of the Mongol-Okhotsk Ocean. The work is focused on the Carboniferous trench basin turbidite series of the Gorkhi Formation within the Hangai-Hentei basin. Field work and sample collection in the Hangai-Hentei basin provided new data for defining the type and timing of ocean formation, the subduction and the opposing margins.

Abdul Sheriff, Vijayalakshmi Teelock, Saada Omar Wahab Transition from Slavery in Zanzibar and Mauritius

3927 руб.
This book presents a comparative history of slavery and the transition from slavery to free labour in Zanzibar and Mauritius, within the context of a wider comparative study of the subject in the Atlantic and Indian Ocean worlds. Both countries are islands, with roughly the same size of area and populations, a common colonial history, and both are multicultural societies. However, despite inhabiting and using the same oceanic space, there are differences in experiences and structures which deserve to be explored. In the nineteenth century, two types of slave systems developed on the islands – while Zanzibar represented a variant of an Indian Ocean slave system, Mauritius represented a variant of the Atlantic system – yet both flourished when the world was already under the hegemony of the global capitalist mode of production. This comparison, therefore, has to be seen in the context of their specific historical conjunctures and the types of slave systems in the overall theoretical conception of modes of production within which they manifested themselves, a concept that has become unfashionable but which is still essential. The starting point of many such efforts to compare slave systems has naturally been the much-studied slavery in the Atlantic region which has been used to provide a paradigm with which to study any type of slavery anywhere in the world. However, while Mauritian slavery was 100 per cent colonial slavery, slavery in Zanzibar has been described as ‘Islamic sla...

The Blue Economy Handbook of the Indian Ocean Region

8677 руб.
As humanity enters the Anthropocene epoch the oceans are more at risk than ever before as a result of the increased exploitation of its resources. The Indian Ocean is the third largest ocean in the world comprising 20% of the water on the Earth's surface. The sea lanes in the Indian Ocean are among the busiest in the world with more than 80 percent of global seaborne trade in oil transiting through the Indian Ocean and its vital chokepoints and an estimated 40% of the world's offshore oil production comes from the Indian Ocean. The importance of this region cannot be underestimated and there is no doubt that there are many opportunities for economic growth and job creation presented by the waters washing the shores of the Indian Ocean Rim. In order to ensure a desirable future for humanity it is necessary to make use of the ocean’s resources in a sustainable and responsible manner. Climate change is affecting the Indian Ocean negatively, placing a strain on the ability to ensure food security and damaging the economies of small island states that depend on fisheries and aquaculture for their livelihoods. Increasing ocean temperatures and ocean acidification are taking a toll on ecosystems.This book is the first of its kind, providing fresh insights into the various aspects and impacts of the Blue Economy in the Indian Ocean Region: from shifting paradigms, to an accounting framework, gender dynamics, the law of the sea and renewable energy, this handbook aims at incre...

Robert Montgomery Smith Jackson The Mountain

5989 руб.
The Mountain is R. M. S. Jackson's intriguing work on the benefits of a life attuned to nature. In the second half of the nineteenth century, Jackson, a doctor and health enthusiast from Cambria County, Pennsylvania, established a sanitarium called the Allegheny Mountain Health Institute. In this book, he urges his readers to abandon the mobs of the cities and frivolities of leisure for the health and happiness that he attributes to the powers of the Allegheny Mountains. The Mountain is an exemplary study of the Alleghenies, combining an examination of the natural environment with Jackson's own philosophy on the rewards of discovering a "rejuvenescence in Nature."

Beryl Markham West with the Night

964 руб.
2010 Reprint of 1942 First Edition. Markham is often described as "the first person" to fly the Atlantic east to west in a solo non-stop flight, though most now dispute this claim. When Markham decided to take on the Atlantic crossing, no pilot had yet flown non-stop from Europe to New York, and no woman had made the westward flight solo, though several had died trying. Markham hoped to claim both records. On September 4, 1936, she took off from Abingdon, England. After a 20-hour flight she crash-landed at Baleine Cove on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. In spite of falling short of her goal, Markham had become the first woman to cross the Atlantic east-to-west solo, and the first person to make it from England to North America non-stop. She was celebrated as an aviation pioneer. Markham chronicled her many adventures in her memoir, West with the Night, published in 1942. Despite strong reviews in the press, the book sold modestly, and then quickly went out of print. After living for many years in the United States, Markham moved back to Kenya in 1952, becoming for a time the most successful horse trainer in the country.

Most people in their late 80's settle for an easy life. Not so Edith Amy Pierce! Something of a rapscallion in her youth, she lived through the horrors of the Second World War in Liverpool. She had to wave goodbye to her husband Harold, only four days after their marriage, and had to wait nearly four years before seeing him again. Read the fascinating story in her autobiography, From Everton Vale to Rivington Pike. After Harold's death in 1981, she moved nearer to one of her three daughters, in Horwich near Bolton, just a short walk from Rivington Pike. She immersed herself in voluntary work in order to overcome her grief, and has continued to find many ways over the years ever since to make other people's lives more comfortable. Later she married again, and enjoyed 10 years of life with John, experiencing a host of adventures and scrapes on their long hikes through the Lancashire countryside. Now, approaching her 90th birthday, she is celebrating life with this highly readable autobiography.

While Germans, the largest immigration group in the United States, contributed to the shaping of American society and left their mark on many areas from religion and education to food, farming, political and intellectual life, Americans have been instrumental in shaping German democracy after World War II. Both sides can claim to be part of each other's history, and yet the question arises whether this claim indicates more than a historical interlude in the forming of the Atlantic civilization.In this volume some of the leading historians, social scientists and literary scholars from both sides of the Atlantic have come together to investigate, for the first time in a broad interdisciplinary collaboration, the nexus of these interactions in view of current and future challenges to German-American relations.

Have you ever struggled in the ocean? Things can quickly get scary in the surf, even under ideal conditions. Rip currents can emerge without warning and sweep unsuspecting bathers into deeper water. Lifeguard Ken Tells All brings simple, effective strategies to readers from the witty perspective of a seasoned ocean lifeguard.Lifeguard Ken Tells All looks at three components of safer bathing: first, understanding how the ocean works; second, effectively responding to danger; and third, coping with a reflex as dangerous as the ocean—our own panic.For twenty-six summers author Ken Cassie worked as a lifeguard on Atlantic Coast beaches, taking part in one thousand rescues. In recent years, danger in the surf has increased. Larger numbers of people now bathe before and after lifeguard hours, as well as before and after the traditional beach season. Such changes have increased the chances of drowning. The need to understand surf dynamics is greater than ever.Using anecdotes and drawing upon personal experiences, Ken takes you through the tumbling surf with wry humor. But you’ll need your wits to survive “The Great Deceiver” when the calm, inviting water becomes a churning washtub—and you are the laundry.

The year is 1942. World War II is in full swing in the Atlantic. The Caribbean islands form an arc of lookout posts arrayed against an unseen enemy. From here, Great Britain and the United States spy the waves for German U-boats attempting stealthy approaches to the Panama Canal, the Gulf of Mexico and the strategic ports of South and Central America. Far from the deadly fray out in the mid Atlantic, life could have gone on as usual in the British colony of Trinidad. But this cosmopolitan island has become a crucial outpost, now manned by thousands of American servicemen. And as the days grow hotter and the nights grow longer lying in wait for those Nazi ships, restlessness turns to mischief, and mischief turns to murder.

Abducted from Africa, sold in America.“A deeply affecting record of an extraordinary life”– Daily TelegraphA major literary event: a newly published work from the author of the American classic Their Eyes Were Watching God, with a foreword from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker.This account illuminates the horror and injustices of slavery as it tells the true story of one of the last-known survivors of the Atlantic slave trade.In 1927, Zora Neale Hurston went to Plateau, Alabama, just outside Mobile, to interview eighty-six-year-old Cudjo Lewis, who was abducted from Africa on the last «Black Cargo» ship to arrive in the United States. Of the millions of men, women, and children transported from Africa to America as slaves, Cudjo was then the only person alive to tell the story of this integral part of the nation’s history. Hurston was there to record Cudjo’s firsthand account of the raid that led to his capture and bondage fifty years after the Atlantic slave trade was outlawed in the United States.In 1931, Hurston returned to Plateau, the African-centric community three miles from Mobile founded by Cudjo and other former slaves from his ship. Spending more than three months there, she talked in depth with Cudjo about the details of his life. During those weeks, the young writer and the elderly formerly enslaved man ate peaches and watermelon that grew in the backyard and talked about Cudjo’s past—memories from his childhood in Africa, the horrors of being captured and held in a barracoon for selection by American slavers, the harrowing experience of the Middle Passage packed with more than 100 other souls aboard the Clotilda, and the years he spent in slavery until the end of the Civil War.Based on those interviews, featuring Cudjo’s unique vernacular, and written from Hurston’s perspective with the compassion and singular style that have made her one of the preeminent American authors of the twentieth-century, Barracoon masterfully illustrates the tragedy of slavery and of one life forever defined by it. Offering insight into the pernicious legacy that continues to haunt us all, black and white, this poignant and powerful work is an invaluable contribution to our shared history and culture.
