Philosophy is to question everything. More than a lifestyle, larger than any single idea, broader than a conviction, philosophy is the love of exploration, of knowledge, of uncertainty, and of that cornerstone of free thinking: doubt. Kevin Perry’s “Philosophy” takes the reader on a grand tour of life’s biggest questions, examining all that the world’s greatest philosophers have said about life and death, love and loss, language, art and God, to name a few. Philosophy is a great companion and a roadmap to navigate life’s major milestones, including: How to make sense of deathWhat loving someone or something meansThe effect of art on our livesWhat role language plays in understanding the worldHow do our ideas affect our actions

In return for Kevin's help, Sneeks writes a story of Kevin's life detailing the pitfalls and tragedies in Kevin's life from feeling guilty over the death of his brother, to alcohol and drug abuse.

The application of negative impedance converter circuits for use in extremely broadband antenna systems is proposed. The theory of short antennaes, and means of achieving a conjugate impedance match to them, is discussed. Synthesis methods that yield the required converters, uncompensated or compensated, are presented. Lastly, the performance of several of the constructed antenna systems are compared with that of a 12 foot whip. (Author).

Environmental Sedimentology provides a comprehensive introduction to this rapidly expanding field which addresses the functioning and dynamics of contemporary sediment systems and how these systems respond to a range of both natural and anthropogenically-induced disturbance events. considers a range of sedimentary environments; mountain and upland, fluvial, lacustrine, arid, urban, deltaic and estuarine, temperate coastal, tropical coastal, and continental shelf aspects of sediment management and remediation are also considered as are the potential impacts of on-going and future climatic and environmental change Readership: advanced level undergraduates in earth science, environmental science and physical geography, and graduate students in the earth and environmental sciences with an interest in contemporary sediment systems
