The Thousand Islands 2009 The Thousand Islands are more than 1,800 islands located in 35 miles of the upper St. Lawrence River between Upstate New York and southeastern Ontario. During the latter half of the 19th century, the region evolved as a vacation destination, initially for Canadian and American urbanites drawn by the restorative powers of spectacular scenery and relaxed summer life. Tourism expanded rapidly, and by the early 1900s, the Thousand Islands boasted dozens of grand hotels, daily railroad connections to New York and Philadelphia, steamship service to Montreal and Toronto, innumerable sightseeing and guided fishing excursions, and the best that North Americas premier vacation spot could offer.

Cervical, Breast and Prostate Cancer (Black and White) iConcept Press 2014-07-16 Cervical cancer and breast cancer are two of the most common cancers found in women. Cervical cancer is when cancer arises from the cervix. Early on there are typically no symptoms. Later symptoms may include abnormal vaginal bleeding, pelvic pain or pain during sex. Breast cancer is when cancer develops from breast tissue. Signs of breast cancer may include a lump in the breast, a change in breast shape, dimpling of the skin, fluid coming from the nipple, or a red scaly patch of skin. Prostate cancer is when cancer develops in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. It may initially cause no symptoms. In later stages it can cause difficulty urinating, blood in the urine, or pain in the pelvis, back or when urinating. This book provides some latest research and findings on breast cancer, cervical cancer and prostate cancer. The aim of this book is to serve as an important reference book for individuals working in biomedical laboratories, and for clinical professionals. There are totally 13 chapters in this book. Chapter 1 proposes an outlook on different endoscopic surgical procedures to treat cervical cancer, using traditional laparoscopy and robotics. Chapter 2 reviews the clinical results of carbon ion radiotherapy (C-ion RT) for uterine cervical cancer. Carbon-ion RT has been established as a safe short-term treatment for locally advanced uterine cervical cancer. Chapter 3 summarises chrysin inhibits proliferation, induces apoptosis and reduce angiogenesis in most tested cancer cells, including cervical cancer cells. Chapter 4 shows that involving physicians in the promotion of public health programs and initiatives is a viable option. Chapter 5 summarizes the published findings about the controversial role of METCAM, a cell adhesion molecule, in the progression of human breast cancer. Chapter 6 focuses on the biology of "neu" in breast cancer - the potential mechanisms that may contribute to tumor resistance and the numerous uncertainties that persist despite the bona-fide progress made in treating this particular subtype of breast cancer. Chapter 7 describes the mechanisms by which estrogen can exert its role in estrogenresponsive cells, focusing on specific aspects of estrogen receptor signaling. Moreover, this chapter shows how some of the proteins involved in estrogen receptor signaling can be used as predictive markers in breast cancer and describes a proposed clinical study related to the combined use of two drugs (bortezomib and tamoxifen) as therapeutic agents for estrogen receptor negative breast cancers. Chapter 8 summarizes the recent studies indicating that AngII facilitates breast cancer metastasis by contributing to the cross-talk between cancer cells and the host stroma. Chapter 9 focuses on a rationale pharmaceutical development along with a detailed understanding of biological effects so as to accelerate the incorporation of nanocarriers in breast cancer therapy. Chapter 10 summarizes the mTOR pathway and the clinical results in breast cancer treatment, relating them to results obtained using cultured MCF-7 breast cancer tamoxifen resistant sublines. Chapter 11 discusses how to develop a standard extraction method, yielding tomato products which are suitable for cell cultures, and enable product comparison of different tomato varieties. Chapter 12 describes principles and processes that are involved in investigating biological or clinical problems with nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) based metabolomics - an approach that involves the global analysis of metabolites. The authors use prostate cancer as a case study to outline the processes, applications and potential of metabolomics for inform scientists and clinicians. Chapter 13 discusses the epidemiology, screening, diagnosis and treatment options of prostate cancer and its association with osteoporosis.

Achtung-Panzer! Heinz Guderian 1995 This is one of the most significant military books of the twentieth century. By an outstanding soldier of independent mind, it pushed forward the evolution of land warfare and was directly responsible for German armoured supremacy in the early years of the Second World War. Published in 1937, the result of 15 years of careful study since his days on the German General Staff in the First World War, Guderian's book argued, quite clearly, how vital the proper use of tanks and supporting armoured vehicles would be in the conduct of a future war. When that war came, just two years later, he proved it, leading his Panzers with distinction in the Polish, French and Russian campaigns. Panzer warfare had come of age, exactly as he had forecast. This first English translation of Heinz Guderian's classic book - used as a textbook by Panzer officers in the war - has an introduction and extensive background notes by the modern English historian Paul Harris.

Botanical Prints Henry Evans 2011-01-11 Henry Evans (1918–1990) began making botanical prints in 1958, depicting some 1,400 subjects in 31 years. In that time, he was accorded more than 250 one–man shows in many countries around the world and in almost every state in the union. Admired by art lovers and naturalists alike, Henry's work reveals a style intriguingly personal and botanically faithful, unerring in its feeling for rhythm and design. Self–taught as a printer, botanist, and artist, he developed a unique style and technique. He drew directly from living subjects, and all subjects were portrayed life–size. He used linoleum as a printing surface and an 1852 Washington Hand Press to make the prints. All of the work was done by hand. All of the materials that were used were of the best quality, and all of the editions were limited. Each linoleum–block print was numbered, dated, and signed by the artist. After printing, the blocks were destroyed. Botanical Prints presents a vast array of Evans's work and goes one step further by providing excerpts from the artist's notebook, which illuminate not only the physical processes he used but also the brilliant mind that created both the prints and the prose.

Pen & Ink James Hobbs 2019-06-01 Pen & Ink is packed with page after page of bite-sized creative sketching tips and accessible advice, and offers aspiring artists the freedom to dip in and out for practical information or flick through for fresh inspiration and ideas. Exploring around 200 pieces of artwork by young contemporary artists, Pen & Ink highlights and examines the different techniques, qualities, and effects relating to each piece. Organized into chapters according to the technique exemplified (e.g.water soluble, mixed media) artwork is featured large and luscious, accompanied by extended captions, insightful tips, and practical advice. A detailed index at the front of the book also groups the paintings according to three main categories: Principles (e.g. composition), Media, Type of sketch (e.g. abstract), and Subject (e.g. nature). Listing each page where similar examples may be found, this category index enables the reader to easily identify and cross reference subjects that have been painted in similar styles. Throughout the book, useful information and practical tips are provided on a wide range of topics such as tone, perspective, color, and much more besides. Readers are encouraged to discover the various ways in which similar subjects and styles are executed by different artists, while also being inspired to use the tips in the book as a way of building on their existing skills. Offering a bold, refreshing change from other run-of-the-mill art books, Pen & Ink adopts the unique approach of accessing practical information via the images, focusing on the way subjects can be treated using a whole range of different drawing techniques, rather than looking at how to master one single style. This gives the reader a much wider skill set—allowing them to capture or create the essence of any image in a variety of different ways.

Little Women Gift Pack - Lined Notebook and Novel Louisa May Alcott 2021-02-23 This gift pack contains both the hardcover classic novel and a matching ruled hardcover notebook in a one quarter slipcase. Bringing one of the world's most beautiful editions of the classic novel, Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, and a lined writing journal with a matching cover, in one beautifully presented gift package. Little Women was, and remains, Alcott's best-known and most widely read work. It was her first novel and was so popular that her audience demanded sequels, a request that Alcott fulfilled, although most readers believe that Little Women is the most compelling of Alcott's novels about the March family. Little Women is a well-told story that features suspense, humour, and engaging characters, as well as lessons about the importance of honesty, hard work, true love, and family unity. Brilliant in its portrayal of nineteenth-century American family life, the novel depicts a secure, placid world in which the home serves as the centre for children's religious and moral education. The novel opens, with the four girls--the oldest, Meg (sixteen), tomboyish Jo (fifteen), sweet Beth (thirteen), and the youngest, Amy (twelve)--are sitting around the hearth contemplating a Christmas without presents, for their father is away serving as chaplain for a unit of men fighting in the Civil War, and the family has very limited funds. From this opening dialogue, a reader gets insights into the basic personality types of the various characters. Meg feels most strongly the family's limited resources. It is she who struggles hardest with envy of the wealthier girls in town. Jo is the most spirited of the lot, physically the most active and psychologically the most independent; she nevertheless is most comfortable when she is safely ensconced within the family circle of Marmee (the girls' nickname for their mother) and the four girls. Beth is the sweetest and most generous of the girls, the one who complains least and tries hardest to ease the difficulties of the others. She is the character whom some readers think is really too good to be true. As might be expected, she dies an early death, as if she is too good for this world. The youngest, Amy, has rather grand visions of herself but these are tempered as she tests her artistic skills abroad and eventually marries the boy next door. In Alcott's novel, the family--as the most important of social units--gives its members strength to overcome life's obstacles and teaches them the value of selflessness. Mrs. March, in particular, exemplifies the courage and perseverance necessary to hold the family together through war and death. Although the novel ends happily, it in many ways marks a departure from simplistic, romantic nineteenth century fiction for young adults. Alcott's characters change in response to serious life-events; their positive but realistic attitudes inspire readers to identify their own strengths in the face of pain and adversity. Chiltern creates the most beautiful editions of the World's finest literature. Your favourite classic titles in a way you have never seen them before: the tactile layers, fine details and beautiful colors of these remarkable covers make these books feel extra special and look striking on any shelf.
Maria Merian's Butterflies Kate Heard 2016 "In 1699, the German artist and entomologist Maria Sibylla Merian set sail for Suriname, in South America. There she would spend two years studying the animals and plants which she encountered, aiming to explore the life-cycle of insects (then only partially understood). Those studies led to the publication of the Metamorphosis Insectorum Surinamensium (the Metamorphosis of the Insects of Suriname), a luxury volume which brought the wonders of Suriname to Europe."--

His painting Net of Being--inspired by a blazing vision of an infinite grid of Godheads during an ayahuasca journey--has reached millions as the cover and interior of the band TOOL’s Grammy award–winning triple-platinum album, 10,000 Days. Net of Being is one of many images Grey has created that have resulted in a chain reaction of uses--from apparel and jewelry to tattoos and music videos--embedding these iconic works into our culture’s living Net of Being. The book explores how the mystical experience expressed in Alex Grey’s work opens a new understanding of our shared consciousness and unveils the deep influence art can have on cultural evolution. The narrative progresses through a successive expansion of identity--from the self, to self and beloved, to self and community, world spirit, and cosmic consciousness, where bodies are transparent to galactic energies. Presenting over 200 images, including many never-before-reproduced paintings as well as masterworks such as St. Albert and the LSD Revelation Revolution and Godself, the book also documents performance art, live-painting on stage throughout the world, and the “social sculpture” called CoSM, Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, that Grey cofounded with his wife and creative collaborator, artist Allyson Grey.

A Widening Sphere (Routledge Revivals) Martha Vicinus 2013-10-08 First published in 1977, this book is a companion volume to Suffer and Be Still. It looks at the widening sphere of women’s activities in the Victorian age and testifies to the dual nature of the legal and social constraints of the period: on the one hand, the ideal of the perfect lady and the restrictive laws governing marriage and property posed limits to women’s independence; on the other hand, some Victorian women chose to live lives of great variety and complexity. By uncovering new data and reinterpreting old, the contributors in this volume debunk some of the myths surrounding the Victorian woman and alter stereotypes on which many of today’s social customs are based.
