Landscape architecture is comprised of a wide and multifaceted range of very diverse outdoor space designs – stern or playful, shrill or romantic, straightforward or low key. As their main building materials are trees and shrubs, flowers and grass, landscape architecture projects are in a constant state of flux. As opposed to architectural buildings, projects in this sector are therefore never quite 'finished' or completely developed. This compendium is a reference book and source of inspiration in one, presenting around 350 current projects from around the world. They range from expansive natural and cultivated landscapes, via picturesque front yards and courtyards, spectacular greened facades and roofs, up to innovative outdoor designs that nearly or completely make do without any vegetation. They all share the fact that they constitute and provide ecologically and socially intact living spaces for human beings.
Written to be read straight through as well as to be used as a technical reference, each chapter of this book focuses on an individual aspect of application performance and how it relates to the overall development and tune-up process. The reader will be introduced to the fundamentals of iOS performance bottlenecks and how poor application performance can and does affect a user's experience, adoption, and ultimately success This book is for iOS application developers who are interested in resolving application performance bottlenecks in both new and existing Xcode projects. Readers should be familiar with the basic concepts and principles of iOS development, Objective-C syntax, and use of Apple's Xcode development environment.

Life on earth depends on the photosynthetic use of solar energy by plants, and efforts to develop alternative sources of energy include a major thrust toward the use of photosynthesis to yield fuels. The study of photosynthesis is an especially convincing way of bringing together the disciplines of physics, chemistry, and biology and can be a valuable element in the teaching of biophysics and biochemistry. This book provides the only detailed modern treatment of the subject in a concise form. Part I outlines the historical development of the subject, emphasizing the chemical nature of photosynthesis and the roles of chlorophylls and other pigments. Part II reviews our present knowledge of the structure and components of photosynthetic tissues in relation to their function. Part III deals with the photo-chemistry of photosynthesis and with the patterns of chemical events, principally electron and proton transfer, that follow the photo-chemistry. Part IV treats the relationships of electron and proton transport to ATP formation, and the metabolic patterns of carbon assimilation. An epilogue exposes major areas of confusion and ignorance and indicates potentially fruitful directions of research, including the development of photosynthetic systems for solar energy conversion. Throughout the book, there are frequent digressions into those aspects of optics and molecular physics relevant to the subject matter. Suitable for upper undergraduate and graduate course use, this book is also sufficiently detailed to give professional scientists a perspective of the subject at the level of contemporary research.

Author: Sigmund Freud
Publisher: Penguin UK
Freud's religious unbeliefs are too easily dismissed as the standard scientific rationalism of the twentieth-century intellectual, yet he scorned the high-minded humanism of his contemporaries. In Mass Psychology and Analysis of the 'I' he explores the notion of 'mass-psychology' - his findings would prove all too prophetic in the years that followed. Writings such as A Religious Experience and The Future of an Illusion continue earlier work on the essential savagery of the civilized mind, and Moses the Man and Monotheistic Religion excavates the roots of religion and racism, which he concludes are inextricably intertwined. This remarkable collection reveals Freud not only at his most radically pessimistic, but also at his most personally courageous - engaging with his own adherences, his own antecedents, his own identity.

Cultivated in East Kentucky and North Carolina for over 100 years, the two finger picking style has almost been forgotten. Few "old timer" players have mastered this style but fortunately some committed players like Art Rosenbaum and Mike Seeger have preserved this heritage and kept the style present.And now in three installments, Sebastian Schroeder will introduce you to this interesting style. The first book "2-Finger-Picking Index Lead Style" focuses on the index finger being the lead. The index finger is used to pluck the essential melody notes with the fifth string drone is played by the thumb. This technique can be easily used for all songs and you can almost play all Clawhammer tablatures using this style. This book includes 43 pages for banjo beginners and advanced players, 42 downloadable audio examples and tablature for all exercises and songs.
