A savory account of how the pursuit of delicious foods shaped human evolution Nature, it has been said, invites us to eat by appetite and rewards by flavor. But what exactly are flavors? Why are some so pleasing while others are not? Delicious is a supremely entertaining foray into the heart of such questions. With generous helpings of warmth and wit, Rob Dunn and Monica Sanchez offer bold new perspectives on why food is enjoyable and how the pursuit of delicious flavors has guided the course of human history. They consider the role that flavor may have played in the invention of the first tools, the extinction of giant mammals, the evolution of the world's most delicious and fatty fruits, the creation of beer, and our own sociality. Along the way, you will learn about the taste receptors you didn't even know you had, the best way to ferment a mastodon, the relationship between Paleolithic art and cheese, and much more. Blending irresistible storytelling with the latest science, Delicious is a deep history of flavor that will transform the way you think about human evolution and the gustatory pleasures of the foods we eat.
Mathematical skills and concepts lie at the heart of chemistry, yet they are the aspect of the subject that many students fear the most. Maths for Chemistry recognizes the challenges faced by many students in equipping themselves with the maths skills necessary to gain a full understanding of chemistry. Working from foundational principles, the book builds the student's confidence by leading them through the subject in a steady, progressive way from basic algebra to quantum mathematics. Opening with the core mathematics of algebra, logarithms and trigonometry, the book goes on to cover calculus, matrices, vectors, complex numbers, and laboratory mathematics to cover everything that a chemistry student needs. With its modular structure, the book presents material in short, manageable sections to keep the content as accessible and readily digestible as possible. Maths for Chemistry is the perfect introduction to the essential mathematical concepts which all chemistry students should master.
Making the transition to university chemistry is the perfect companion as students take the significant step from school to university, setting them up to be confident and successful in their chemistry studies. Each topic opens with expanded bullet points that remind the reader of familiar ideas from their pre-university studies that they will be expected to understand at the start of their undergraduate course. Taking the next step sections expand on these familiar ideas by way of more detailed explanations, which allow the reader to make links to work that will be important at university. Finally, A Deeper Look sections explore more challenging concepts (either because the mathematical level is higher or the explanation is more complicated). Some of the concepts presented in these sections are among the most exciting in the subject: they give a flavour of the new insights the study of chemistry at university can offer. Its focus on those topics that may not have previously been studied by all students, and those topics that are regularly misunderstood by incoming undergraduates, provides guidance tailored to the particular needs of this student cohort, laying the foundation they need to succeed throughout their university studies. Digital formats and resources Making the transition to university chemistry is available for students and institutions to purchase in a variety of formats. The e-book offers a mobile experience and convenient access along with functionality tools, navigation features, and links that offer extra learning support: www.oxfordtextbooks.co.uk/ebooks

Everything in the universe is made up of the elements - including us. Forged in the Big Bang, the elements and their resulting compounds created the solar system, planet Earth, the air we breathe, the water we rely on and the proteins that would become life. In fact, everything in the known Universe is made up of one of the 118 elements of the periodic table - so we really should know something about them! This little book is the perfect guide, listing all the elements' vital stats, and exploring their astonishing histories and usages in an accessible and easy-to-understand way.

Welfare states face profound challenges. Widening economic and social inequalities have been intensified by austerity politics, sharpened by the rise in ethno-nationalism and exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, recent decades have seen a resurgence of social justice activism at both the local and the transnational level. Yet the transformative power of feminist, anti-racist and postcolonial/decolonial thinking has become relatively marginal to core social policy theory, while other critical approaches - around disability, sexuality, migration, age and the environment - have found recognition only selectively. This book provides a much needed new analysis of this complex landscape, drawing together critical approaches in social policy with intersectionality and political economy. Fiona Williams contextualizes contemporary social policies not only in the global crisis of finance capitalism but also in the interconnected global crises of care, ecology and racialized borders. These shape and are shaped at national scale by the intersecting dynamics of family, nation, work and nature. Through critical assessment of these realities, the book probes the ethical, prefigurative and transformative possibilities for a future welfare commons. This significant intervention will animate social policy thinking, teaching and research. It will be essential reading for anyone wanting to understand the complexities of social policy for the years ahead.
The operation of ozone contactors needs to be optimized to provide adequate disinfection while minimizing the formation of disinfection by-products. However, measuring the actual disinfection efficiency is impractical in a full-scale system. The objective of this project was to demonstrate of the use of polystyrene microspheres to assess and optimize the performance of full-scale ozone disinfection systems. Specifically, the researchers developed and optimized microspheres with laboratory-scale experiments, demonstrated the use of microsphere method with a full-scale ozone contactor, and applied a mathematical model for the prediction of disinfection efficiency and bromate formation in the full-scale ozone contactor. This study has shown that microspheres can be used as a surrogate for assessing the inactivation efficiency of C. parvum oocysts in ozone contactors. It is therefore recommended that water utilities using ozone as disinfectant consider performing such tests. This study has also shown that a mathematical model could be used to predict the performance of the contactor. Mathematical simulation revealed that reducing dispersion would result in more disinfection with minimal effect on bromate formation. Originally published by AwwaRF for its subscribers in 2004.
