A lighthearted coming-of-age debut echoing novels like Karen Russell’s Swamplandia! and Carol Rifka Brunt’s Tell the Wolves I’m Home. A.Z. McKinney is on the shores of greatness. Now all she needs is a boat. When the Sea of Santiago appears overnight in a cow pasture in Arkansas, it seems, to some, a religious miracle. But to high school sophomore A.Z. McKinney, it marks her chance to make history—as its first oceanographer. All she needs is to get out on the water. And when a cute, conceptual artist named Kristoff moves to town, A.Z. realizes she may have found a first mate. Together, they make a plan to build a boat and study the Sea in secret. But from fighting with her best friend to searching for a tourist-terrorizing alligator (that may or may not be a crocodile), distractions are everywhere . . . With her self-determined oceanic destiny on the line, A.Z. finds herself at odds with everything she thought she knew about life, love, and the sea. To get what she wants, she’ll have to decide whether to sink or float . . . But which one comes first? “Beautifully written, equal parts hilarious and poignant, this insightful, and stunningly imaginative, novel is a miracle in itself.” —Skip Horack, author of The Other Joseph, The Eden Hunter, and The Southern Cross “Teague’s debut novel masterfully chronicles the friction, contradictions, and emotional tsunamis of being an intelligent 14-year-old girl.” —Booklist, starred review

This research collection presents a critical review of the materials used for learning English around the world. The first section includes a discussion of materials for specific learners and purposes, such as young learners, self-study, academic writing and general proficiency. The second section presents a detailed study of the materials used in Europe, Asia, North America, South America, Africa and Australia, and critically evaluates their effectiveness in the teaching of English to speakers of other languages. Taking both the teacher's and the learner's needs into consideration, the book makes a positive contribution to the future of research in materials development, and has practical applications. This comprehensive, critical analysis of materials in use around the world will be useful for academics researching materials development and applied linguistics and for students on post-graduate applied linguistics and ELT courses.

This new edition has been extensively revised and updated since the 3rd edition published in 1994. It contains an even greater depth of industrial information, focussing on how copper metal is extracted from ore and scrap, and how this extraction could be made more efficient. Modern high intensity smelting processes are presented in detail, specifically flash, Contop, Isasmelt, Noranda, Teniente and direct-to-blister smelting. Considerable attention is paid to the control of SO2 emissions and manufacture of H2SO4. Recent developments in electrorefining, particularly stainless steel cathode technology are examined. Leaching, solvent extraction and electrowinning are evaluated together with their impact upon optimizing mineral resource utilization. The book demonstrates how recycling of copper and copper alloy scrap is an important source of copper and copper alloys. Copper quality control is also discussed and the book incorporates an important section on extraction economics. Each chapter is followed by a summary of concepts previously described and offers suggested further reading and references.

The definitive work on Dissolved Air Flotation Systems (DAF) for clarification of drinking water Dissolved Air Flotation for Water Clarification is a complete design and application source for the water industry divided into three parts: The first develops a fundamental basis for understanding how the process works, and might be adapted to work better. The second provides a reference for design engineers, water operators, and water managers regarding applications where DAF might be incorporated in an overall treatment scheme. The third develops the necessary DAF design concepts and to illustrate them by description of practical applications. Using DAF to remove particles is not only an important process for conventional drinking water plants, but may also be used as a pre-treatment process in membrane plants including reverse osmosis for water desalinization, and in water reuse applications. Dissolved Air Flotation for Water Clarification offers: Information on new applications of DAF in advanced water treatment, desalinization, water reuse, and industrial treatment in food, waste, and pulp and paper Detailed examples, including the world’s largest new DAF plant ever built – Croton, NY water treatment plant A single volume entirely devoted to DAF for drinking water clarification Coverage of conventional and pre-treatment processes SI and conventional units throughout
