Climate Change Adaptation Strategies – An Upstream-downstream Perspective Nadine Salzmann 2016-10-11 Climate change and the related adverse impacts are among the greatest challenges facing humankind during the coming decades. Even with a significant reduction of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, it will be inevitable for societies to adapt to new climatic conditions and associated impacts and risks. This book offers insights to first experiences of developing and implementing adaptation measures, with a particular focus on mountain environments and the adjacent downstream areas. It provides a comprehensive ‘state-of-the-art’ of climate change adaptation in these areas through the collection and evaluation of knowledge from several local and regional case studies and by offering new expertise and insights at the global level. As such, the book is an important source for scientists, practitioners and decision makers alike, who are working in the field of climate change adaptation and towards sustainable development in the sense of the Paris Agreement and the Agenda 2030.

Sakura's Cherry Blossoms Robert Paul Weston 2018-02-20 A warm, gorgeous exploration of a little girl's experience immigrating to a new country and missing her home and her grandmother, who still lives far away. Sakura's dad gets a new job in America, so she and her parents make the move from their home in Japan. When she arrives in the States, most of all she misses her grandmother and the cherry blossom trees, under which she and her grandmother used to play and picnic. She wonders how she'll ever feel at home in this new place, with its unfamiliar language and landscape. One day, she meets her neighbor, a boy named Luke, and begins to feel a little more settled. When her grandmother becomes ill, though, her family takes a trip back to Japan. Sakura is sad when she returns to the States and once again reflects on all she misses. Luke does his best to cheer her up -- and tells her about a surprise he knows she'll love, but she'll have to wait till spring. In the meantime, Sakura and Luke's friendship blooms and finally, when spring comes, Luke takes her to see the cherry blossom trees flowering right there in her new neighborhood. Sakura's Cherry Blossoms captures the beauty of the healing power of friendship through Weston's Japanese poetry-inspired text and Saburi's breathtaking illustrations.
Scornflakes Attila (the Stockbroker) 1992 Attila the Stockbroker has travelled the world for ten years, taking his highly individual, fiery cocktail of energetic performance poetry, hardcore minimalist folk-rock anthems (accompanied by his trusty mandola, Nelson) and surreal political satire from Shoreham Harbour to Sydney Harbour, from Harlow to Helsinki, via Leipzig, Vancouver, Auckland, Amsterdam and Tirana - not to mention Slough! Scornflakes is Attila's second book of poems, the follow-up to 1985's Cautionary Tales for Dead Commuters... Inspiration by Hilaire Belloc. Clothes sense by The Levellers. Holder of a poetic licence for a minstrel cycle, Attila's other interests include lugworms, cultivating coriander plants and 'attempting to control the growth of other vegetables, especially Tory C2s'.In Britain, Attila has done substantial work for The Guardian and Radio Four, written for the music press (ha!) and even stranger publications, and made considerable numbers of sporadic and often unlikely radio and TV appearances from John Peel to Pebble Mill. He's a regular at events such as the Edinburgh Fringe and Glastonbury Festival, and performs at every conceivable type of venue - arts centres, rock gigs, poetry festivals, comedy clubs...He has released five LPs in the UK - most recently Scornflakes and Donkeys' Years - and has also had albums issued in Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Germany. His most recent release is an Antipodean CD called 668 - Neighbour of the Beast.Scornflakes is illustrated with cartoons by Womble.

As Prom Queen and Captain of the cheer squad, she'd ruled her school mercilessly, looking down her nose at everyone she deemed unworthy. The most unworthy of them all? The "freak," Manson Reed: her favorite victim. But a lot changes after high school.A freak like him never should have ended up at the same Halloween party as her.

Yvain Chretien de Troyes 1987-09-10 The twelfth-century French poet Chrétien de Troyes is a major figure in European literature. His courtly romances fathered the Arthurian tradition and influenced countless other poets in England as well as on the continent. Yet because of the difficulty of capturing his swift-moving style in translation, English-speaking audiences are largely unfamiliar with the pleasures of reading his poems. Now, for the first time, an experienced translator of medieval verse who is himself a poet provides a translation of Chrétien’s major poem, Yvain, in verse that fully and satisfyingly captures the movement, the sense, and the spirit of the Old French original. Yvain is a courtly romance with a moral tenor; it is ironic and sometimes bawdy; the poetry is crisp and vivid. In addition, the psychological and the socio-historical perceptions of the poem are of profound literary and historical importance, for it evokes the emotions and the values of a flourishing, vibrant medieval past.

Tanks Richard Ogorkiewicz 2015-02-20 From an internationally acclaimed expert in the field comes a detailed, analytical and comprehensive account of the worldwide evolution of tanks, from their inception a century ago to the present day. With new ideas stemming from the latest academic research, this study presents a reappraisal of the development of tanks and their evolution during World War I and how the surge in technological development during World War II and the subsequent Cold War drove developments in armour in Europe and America, transforming tanks into fast, resilient and powerful fighting machines. From the primitive, bizarre-looking Mark V to the Matilda and from the menacing King Tiger to the superlative M1 Abrams, Professor Ogorkiewicz shows how tanks gradually acquired the enhanced capabilities that enabled them to become what they are today – the core of combined-arms, mechanized warfare.
Project Based Teaching Suzie Boss 2018-09-20 It's no secret that in today's complex world, students face unparalleled demands as they prepare for college, careers, and active citizenship. However, those demands won't be met without a fundamental shift from traditional, teacher-centered instruction toward innovative, student-centered teaching and learning. For schools ready to make such a shift, project-based learning (PBL) offers a proven framework to help students be better equipped to tackle future challenges. Project Based Teachers encourage active questioning, curiosity, and peer learning; create learning environments in which every student has a voice; and have a mastery of content but are also comfortable responding to students' questions by saying, "I don’t know. Let's find out together." In this book, Suzie Boss and John Larmer build on the framework for Gold Standard PBL originally presented in Setting the Standard for Project Based Learning and explore the seven practices integral to Project Based Teaching: Build the Culture Design and Plan Align to Standards Manage Activities Assess Student Learning Scaffold Student Learning Engage and Coach For each practice, the authors present a wide range of practical strategies and include teachers' reflections about and suggestions from their classroom experiences. This book and a related series of free videos provide a detailed look at what's happening in PBL classrooms from the perspective of the Project Based Teacher. Let's find out together.

Warbaby William Spear 2016-10-01 The complete and fully detailed history of the conception, promotion, financing, design, fabrication, delivery, testing, procurement and production of the first jeeps by the American Bantam Car company for the United States Army. The 400 page book contains hundreds of photos which cover the prewar period when this most significant of American automobiles was created and produced. As much an exciting story of compelling characters as it is the first complete history, a reader will recognize many names in both the public and private which went on to fame in WWII. The book can also be seen as a near text book concerning the practical difficulties in industrial design and procurement, involving as it does the difficulty of innovators satisfying a customer with a design. A careful reader will see the dramatic transition from the ?old America? of the post Civil War era into what we like to call the ?modern times? of the post war era, just now ending. One will see the beginning of Eisenhower's ?Military-Industrial Complex'. Primarily however the book is an inspirational story of a small band of men in a tiny company, struggling for survival which accepts a gigantic challenge and succeeds brilliantly, only to be overwhelmed by the giant government and corporate interests of the time and since forgotten.
A Grammar of Basque José Ignacio Hualde 2003-01-01 As the only surviving pre-Indo-European language of western Europe, Basque has often attracted the interest of linguists. Whereas, traditionally, descriptive work on Basque has primarily focused on morphological features, including its complex system of verb-argument agreement and its strict ergative pattern of inflection, during the last two decades a new generation of Basque linguists has produced very sophisticated, theoretically-informed work on many aspects of the syntax, morphology and phonology of the language, revealing, for instance, a process of focalization with many interesting properties and the existence in some dialects of an accentual system strikingly similar to that of standard Japanese. The book, bringing together this accumulated knowledge on the structure of Basque, is considerably more complete than any other existing grammar of the language. Another interesting feature of this grammar is that the description is illustrated with fully-glossed examples extracted from a great number of written sources. Although the focus is the modern standard language, dialectal features are considered in detail and examples are taken from all dialects and periods.
