Although it is one of the oldest sectors of electronics and now somewhat taken for granted, radio frequency transmission literally changed our world. Today, it is still the backbone of myriad applications, from broadcasting to electronic counter-measures. The wide variety of hardware in use means that those working in the field must be familiar with a multitude of principles and applications, but finding an up-to-date, comprehensive source for this background material has been difficult, if not impossible. The RF Transmission Systems Handbook addresses the underlying concepts, operation, and maintenance of high-power RF devices, transmission lines, and antennas for broadcast, scientific, and industrial use. Focusing on devices and systems that produce more than one kilowatt of output power, the handbook explores the following major topics: Applications: The common uses of radio frequency energy Fundamental principles: The basic technologies, concepts, and techniques used in RF transmission Power vacuum devices: The principles and applications of gridded vacuum tubes and microwave power devices Solid-state power devices: The operating parameters of semiconductor-based power devices RF components and transmission lines: The operation of hardware used to combine and conduct RF power Antenna systems: The different types of antennas and their basic operating parameters Troubleshooting: Basic troubleshooting techniques and the operation of important test instruments Contrary to the perceptions of many, RF technology remains a dynamic field that continues to advance to higher power levels and higher frequencies. Those who specify, install, and maintain RF equipment will welcome this reference that uniquely serves their needs.

Plant Design and Operations, Second Edition, explores design and operational considerations for oil and gas facilities, covering all stages of the plant cycle, with an emphasis on safety and risk. The oil and gas industry is constantly looking for cost optimization strategies, requiring plant-based personnel to expand their knowledge base outside their discipline or subject. Relevant reference materials are scattered throughout various official standards, while staff lack the immediate hands-on knowledge to safely facilitate the full operational life cycle of the plant. This second edition is a complete source of solutions for major process projects including offshore facilities, chemical plants, oil refineries, and pipelines. This single reference provides insight for safer operations and maintenance best practices. It has been updated with more focus on safety in design and operations, standards, and compliance, and more detailed information on equipment and system/component design. Explores design and operational considerations for oil and gas facilities, covering all stages of the plant cycle, with an emphasis on safety and risk Includes updated new chapters covering principles of design, security regulations, and human factors Includes more relevant equipment information covering storage tanks, valves, and control systems Remains the only source to provide hands-on solutions for process plants in the refining and chemical industries

Die Visualisierung von Gehirnprozessen hat in der Geschichte der Hirnforschung regelmäßig große Erwartungen geweckt. Cornelius Borck stellt mit der Registrierung elektrischer Hirnströme eine Aufzeichnungstechnik ins Zentrum seiner Untersuchung, mit der sich seinerzeit die Hoffnung verknüpfte, das Gehirn in seiner eigenen Sprache schreiben zu lassen und so seine Funktionsweise lesbar zu machen. Er verfolgt die vielfach widersprüchlichen Deutungen zur Elektroenzephalographie von den Versuchen des deutschen Psychiaters Hans Berger und seiner Veröffentlichung eines menschlichen EEG im Jahr 1929 bis zu ihrer internationalen Ausbreitung und Konsolidierung als klinische Diagnosemethode in der Mitte des 20sten Jahrhunderts. Borcks These lautet, daß die Schrift des Gehirns in lokalen Forschungskulturen je spezifische Konturen annahm, aus deren Widerstreit ein neues wissenschaftliches Objekt, das elektrische Gehirn hervortrat. Wenn sich in Borcks Analyse Differenzen und Divergenzen in der Hirnforschung als Effekte lokaler Interaktionen verschiedener Akteure erschließen, liefert er damit zugleich einen Beleg für die kulturelle Formbarkeit des Gehirns. Das elektrische Gehirn ist in einem historisch präzisierbaren Sinne erst das Produkt seiner elektrotechnischen Erforschung. Das Wissen vom Gehirn und Theorien über dessen Funktionieren sind von den Maschinen geprägt, denen sich dieses Wissen verdankt. Es stellt sich deshalb vielmehr die Frage, was sich eigentlich darin manifestiert, daß sich die erhobenen EEG-Befunde immer wieder den vorgelegten Theorien und Deutungen entzogen.

Warum bleiben die Reichen reich und die Armen arm? Weil die Reichen ihren Kindern beibringen, wie sie mit Geld umgehen müssen, und die anderen nicht! Die meisten Angestellten verbringen im Laufe ihrer Ausbildung lieber Jahr um Jahr in Schule und Universität, wo sie nichts über Geld lernen, statt selbst erfolgreich zu werden. Robert T. Kiyosaki hatte in seiner Jugend einen "Rich Dad" und einen "Poor Dad". Nachdem er die Ratschläge des Ersteren beherzigt hatte, konnte er sich mit 47 Jahren zur Ruhe setzen. Er hatte gelernt, Geld für sich arbeiten zu lassen, statt andersherum. In Rich Dad Poor Dad teilt er sein Wissen und zeigt, wie jeder erfolgreich sein kann.

Kann EIN Mädchen ZWEI Welten retten? Die untereinander um die Macht ringenden Parteien der Menschen und der Drachen stehen unmittelbar vor einem gewaltsamen Ausbrechen des Konflikts, der schon seit vielen Jahren zwischen ihnen schwelt. Die junge Serafina steht in dieser Situation erneut zwischen den beiden Welten, aus denen sie stammt, trägt sie doch auch Drachenblut in sich. Aber sie ist nicht die Einzige ihrer Art – und von diesen anderen Drachenmenschen erhofft sie sich Hilfe für ihre Heimat. So bricht sie auf, diese Verbündeten zu suchen, während sich alle daheim, auch ihre große Liebe Prinz Lucian, für die Schlacht um das Königreich Gorred und die Freiheit der Menschen rüsten.
