A Sand County Almanac - With other Essays on Conservation from `Round River' (Paperback, Enlarged Edition): Aldo Leopold A Sand County Almanac - With other Essays on Conservation from `Round River' (Paperback, Enlarged Edition)
Aldo Leopold; Illustrated by Charles W. Schwartz
R189 R156 Discovery Miles 1 560 Save R33 (17%) Within 7 - 12 working days

First published in 1949 and praised in The New York Times Book Review as "a trenchant book, full of vigor and bite," A Sand County Almanac combines some of the finest nature writing since Thoreau with an outspoken and highly ethical regard for America's relationship to the land.
Written with an unparalleled understanding of the ways of nature, the book includes a section on the monthly changes of the Wisconsin countryside; another part that gathers informal pieces written by Leopold over a forty-year period as he traveled through the woodlands of Wisconsin, Iowa, Arizona, Sonora, Oregon, Manitoba, and elsewhere; and a final section in which Leopold addresses the philosophical issues involved in wildlife conservation. As the forerunner of such important books as Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Edward Abbey's Desert Solitaire, and Robert Finch's The PrimalPlace, this classic work remains as relevant today as it was forty years ago.

Other specific topics include recycling, physical and chemical processing, the biological treatment of waste solids, incineration, pyrolysis, and energy recover, hazardous wastes, and landfill management.The role of government and other institutions in waste management and resource recovery matters is also detailed. Discussion questions, worked examples, and end-of-chapter problems reinforce important concepts.
Waste Management and Resource Recovery is particularly suitable as a text in waste management courses in environmental science or engineering programs. It also works well as a reference for practitioners in the waste management field.

Literature teacher Laurence (Melvil Poupaud) and his partner Fred (Suzanne Clément) have shared a long and stable marriage, but Laurence has been harbouring a secret. One day he announces to Fred that he feels he has been living a lie for years, and that he can no longer go on living as a man when he knows that he is meant to be a woman. Initially shocked and saddened, Fred eventually pledges to support Laurence throughout his transition and aim for a shared future. However, the pressure on their relationship proves greater than either could have anticipated. Can their partnership survive such a monumental change?

Collection of three films from French-Canadian director Xavier Dolan. In 'Heartbeats' (2010), after meeting confident, free-spirited traveller Nicolas (Niels Schneider) at a party, Marie (Monia Chokri) and her best friend Frankie (Dolan) quickly become infatuated with him. Before long, the three end up in bed together, but Nicolas, whose primary desire is securing a place to stay, provides neither Marie nor Frankie with the deep connection they were hankering after. In 'I Killed My Mother' (2009), 16-year-old Hubert (Dolan) appears on the surface to despise everything about his mother Chantale (Anne Dorval), from the way she dresses to her table manners, but Chantale has reasons to be displeased with her son as well - having found out that he is gay from a friend who mentions his boyfriend, Antonin (François Arnaud), she feels betrayed that Hubert has not told her about his sexuality. Partly as an act of vengeance, she separates the two boys by sending Hubert to boarding school. Will the relationship between mother and son ease with distance, or will the disaffection merely increase? In 'Laurence Anyways' (2012), literature teacher Laurence (Melvil Poupaud) and his partner Fred (Suzanne Clément) have shared a long and stable marriage, but Laurence has been harbouring a secret. One day he announces to Fred that he feels he has been living a lie for years, and that he can no longer go on living as a man when he knows that he is meant to be a woman. Initially shocked and saddened, Fred eventually pledges to support Laurence throughout his transition and they aim for a shared future.

The Atlas of X-Linked Intellectual Disability Syndromes is a comprehensive and up-to-date summary of the clinically distinctive disorders caused by genes on the X chromosome. Clinical and laboratory data on 150 syndromes are presented in a concise and consistent manner. Each syndrome is defined and information is provided on somatic features, growth and development, neurological signs, cognitive performance, imaging and other laboratory findings, and when possible, the nature and localization of the responsible gene. Craniofacial and other somatic findings are extensively illustrated. A differential matrix accompanies each syndrome description to assist the reader in identifying other X-linked syndromes with overlapping features. Individual syndrome entries are supplemented with nineteen appendices that identify syndromes with common features and provide the location or mapping limits and function of the responsible genes. The authors have extensive experience in the clinical and laboratory delineation of X-linked intellectual disability. They have described new syndromes, regionally mapped disease loci on the X chromosome, and identified the genes responsible for X-linked syndromes.

Cities are constantly evolving: Growing, shrinking, diversifying, sprawling, and densifying. Each phase of evolution brings a unique set of challenges to urban areas for how to remain vital and healthy for long-term sustainability. One of the most important questions facing urban centers today is how to keep people attracted to live in, invest in, and participate in the city. Recycling Spaces focuses on these questions broadly through conversations with experts in the fields of landscape, economics, and urbanism, and specifically through the work of world-renowned landscape architectural office, Martha Schwartz Partners. Martha Schwartz Partners breathes life into cities and neighborhoods by creating spaces that that make people feel emotionally connected, engaged, and invested in the long-term viability of the place.

In 1933 Irving Berlin wrote to composer-lyricist Cole Porter, "I am mad about "Night and Day,"" Millions of others throughout the world have been "mad about" that Porter gem, as well as dozens of others, including, to name just a few, "Begin the Beguine, From This Moment On, It's De-Lovely, Just One of Those Things, Love for Sale," and "My Heart Belongs to Daddy," Cole Porter (1891-1964) set new standards for popular song-writing, and his lyrics and melodies are as bright and sophisticated today as when they first dazzled audiences decades ago. Porter's own life matched that of his songs for urbanity, wit, and elegance, and in New York, Hollywood, and on the Continent he was an arbiter of taste and fashion and part of the glamorous international set of the Twenties and Thirties. He numbered among his friends Cary Grant, Noel Coward, Fred Astaire, Ethel Merman, Elsa Maxwell, Fanny Brice, and Monty Woolley, as well as many other stars of stage, screen, or society. "Cole Porter: A Biography" is a delightfully written and meticulously researched book that takes us from the composer's Indiana childhood to his celebrity days, discussing with exceptional honesty his family and friends, his wife and his many lovers, and above all, his music. Charles Schwartz's account of Cole Porter is the most revealing, comprehensive, and objective biography to date of an extraordinarily talented and fascinating man.

In 2002, the Policy Center on the First Year of College (supported by The Pew Charitable Trusts, The Atlantic Philanthropies, and Lumina Foundation for Education) sponsored a project to recognize colleges and universities as "Institutions of Excellence" in their design and execution of the first year. Thirteen colleges and universities--representing a broad spectrum of campus types--were selected as exceptional institutions that place a high priority on the first-year experience. "Achieving and Sustaining Excellence in the First Year of College" includes case studies of each of the thirteen exemplary institutions. These studies illustrate and analyze the colleges' best practices in teaching, assessing, and retaining first-year college students. The individual case studies offer lessons learned and have broad potential application beyond the particular type of institution represented.
