Der Journalist und Moderator Marcus Thomas ist ein echtes Muskelpaket mit durchtrainiertem Body, so wie viele Männer ihn sich wünschen – doch das war nicht immer so. Jahrelang hat er erfolglos trainiert, ohne Muskelmasse aufzubauen. Als sogenannter Hardgainer legte er auch bei Aufnahme großer Nahrungsmengen nur sehr schwer an Muskelmasse zu, da sein Stoffwechsel Kohlenhydrate schlecht verwerten kann. Kein Trainingskonzept hat funktioniert und die üblichen Fitnessratgeber haben ihm auch nicht geholfen. Entweder waren sie zu theoretisch und fachspezifisch oder von Bodybuildern für Bodybuilder geschrieben. Doch eines Tages packte den Journalisten der Ehrgeiz und er begann zu recherchieren, wie Muskelaufbau wirklich funktioniert und wie man auch als Hardgainer Masse aufbauen kann. In seinem Buch lüftet er das Geheimnis, wie er selbst seinen Körper verändert hat, wie er trainiert, was man als Hardgainer über Ernährung wissen muss und wie man motiviert bleibt. Dabei bezieht er immer die neuesten wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse mit ein. Marcus vermittelt kein Halbwissen und keine Mythen, sondern bringt auf den Punkt, was im Gym wirklich rockt. Er hat das Buch geschrieben, das er sich in all den Jahren des erfolglosen Trainings immer gewünscht hat. Sein Wissen möchte er all jenen zugänglich machen, denen es genau so geht wie ihm. Denn jeder kann es schaffen!

Created by two of the world leaders in the subject of strength training and power lifting, Andy Bolton and Pavel Tsatsouline, Deadlift Dynamite is based on a lot of experience, knowledge and techniques. People gain access to proven strength techniques to perform enormous deadlifts along with speed and power building to ensure that they dominate any kind of hard core sport.
High school phenomenon Allyson Felix used this strength training system to run the fastest 200 meters in the world in 2003. Based upon physiology and physics, it incorporates the most recent studies in running mechanics. This training program will dramatically increase running speed, jumping height and muscle power for all athletes.
This book is published open access under a CC BY 4.0 license. It covers aspects of unsupervised machine learning used for knowledge discovery in data science and introduces a data-driven approach to cluster analysis, the Databionic swarm (DBS). DBS consists of the 3D landscape visualization and clustering of data. The 3D landscape enables 3D printing of high-dimensional data structures. The clustering and number of clusters or an absence of cluster structure are verified by the 3D landscape at a glance. DBS is the first swarm-based technique that shows emergent properties while exploiting concepts of swarm intelligence, self-organization and the Nash equilibrium concept from game theory. It results in the elimination of a global objective function and the setting of parameters. By downloading the R package DBS can be applied to data drawn from diverse research fields and used even by non-professionals in the field of data mining.
Cataloging standards practiced within the traditional library, archive and museum environments are not interoperable for the retrieval of objects within the shared online environment. Within today’s information environments, library, archive and museum professionals are becoming aware that all information objects can be linked together. In this way, information professionals have the opportunity to collaborate and share data together with the shard online cataloging environment, the end result being improved retrieval effectiveness. But the adaptation has been slow: Libraries, archives and museums are still operating within their own community-specific cataloging practices. This book provides a historical perspective of the evolution of linking devices within the library, archive, and museums environments, and captures current cataloging practices in these fields. It offers suggestions for moving beyond community-specific cataloging principles and thus has the potential of becoming a springboard for further conversation and the sharing of ideas.
Repositories for Print
Author: Pentti Vattulainen, Steve O'Connor
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG
Repositories for low use books have long existed for the larger cultural institutions across the globe. Libraries have long been strong developers of off-site storage. This need has evolved for libraries because of their continuous collection of print materials as a record of the intellectual and cultural output of different cultures. Libraries have had this role described neatly and executed as a clear professional role. This new book will primarily examine two aspects of this role: Firstly, the organisational and technological responses to this evolving role will be explored and secondly, the wide breadth of strategic responses to challenges of ‘digital’ will be detailed. In this authors to this edited volume will describe their work for libraries but increasingly for Galleries, Archives and Museums. The papers are drawn from Europe, United Kingdom, the United States and Australasia. The organisational models discussed in the book provide clear illustration of imaginative responses to the plight of the individual institutional library. New organisational models are shaping the way in which business can be done in times of change. The pressures today on all cultural institutions are similar and so there is a new convergence of similar need and similar solutions. This book is an acknowledgment that there are a wide variety of strategic, organisational and technological responses to the retention of cultural objects whether they be books, art, records or other cultural objects. It is illustrative of the power of good lateral thinking and planning by professionals, of the power of international networks and of convergence in response to need. The book will be an edited with a future perspective by Pentti Vattulainen and Steve O’Connor who have had significant experience in this area internationally.
In this comprehensive assessment of Kant's metaethics, Frederick Rauscher shows that Kant is a moral idealist rather than a moral realist and argues that Kant's ethics does not require metaphysical commitments that go beyond nature. Rauscher frames the argument in the context of Kant's non-naturalistic philosophical method and the character of practical reason as action-oriented. Reason operates entirely within nature, and apparently non-natural claims - God, free choice, and value - are shown to be heuristic and to reflect reason's ordering of nature. The book shows how Kant hesitates between a transcendental moral idealism with an empirical moral realism and a complete moral idealism. Examining every aspect of Kant's ethics, from the categorical imperative to freedom and value, this volume argues that Kant's focus on human moral agency explains morality as a part of nature. It will appeal to academic researchers and advanced students of Kant, German idealism and intellectual history.
Heidegger, History and the Holocaust is an important contribution to the longstanding debate concerning Martin Heidegger's association with National Socialism. Although a difficult topic, this ambitious new work moves the entire debate on the Heidegger controversy forward. Following Being and Time Heidegger expands on his notion of authenticity and related notions such as historicity and discusses the possibility of an authentic Dasein of a people along structurally consistent lines to his account of authenticity in Being and Time. O'Brien argues that the same difficulties which appear to hamstring the early account of authenticity further affect the notion of an authentic Dasein of a people; Heidegger's political myopia in the thirties can thus be attributed to an underlying failure to come to terms with some of the difficulties discussed in this study. O'Brien concedes that Heidegger's philosophy is influenced by its historical period and context but argues that, however inflammatory, Heidegger's rhetoric cannot be simply reduced to crude Nazi jingoism. This book is a genuinely philosophical approach to the Heidegger controversy and a much-needed re-examination of his ideas and influences.
