Wave breaking represents one of the most interesting and challenging problems for fluid mechanics and physical oceanography. Over the last 15 years our understanding has undergone a dramatic leap forward, and wave breaking has emerged as a process whose physics is clarified and quantified. Ocean wave breaking plays the primary role in the air-sea exchange of momentum, mass and heat, and it is of significant importance for ocean remote sensing, coastal and ocean engineering, navigation and other practical applications. This book outlines the state of the art in our understanding of wave breaking and presents the main outstanding problems. It is a valuable resource for anyone interested in this topic: researchers, modellers, forecasters, engineers and graduate students in physical oceanography, meteorology and ocean engineering.

The Poison In The Gift

Author : Gloria Goodwin Raheja
ISBN : 0226707296
Genre : Social Science

The Poison in the Gift is a detailed ethnography of gift-giving in a North Indian village that powerfully demonstrates a new theoretical interpretation of caste. Introducing the concept of ritual centrality, Raheja shows that the position of the dominant landholding caste in the village is grounded in a central-peripheral configuration of castes rather than a hierarchical ordering. She advances a view of caste as semiotically constituted of contextually shifting sets of meanings, rather than one overarching ideological feature. This new understanding undermines the controversial interpretation advanced by Louis Dumont in his 1966 book, Homo Hierarchicus, in which he proposed a disjunction between the ideology of hierarchy based on the "purity" of the Brahman priest and the "temporal power" of the dominant caste or the king.

After terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 and caused fire WTC-1 and WTC-2 buildings collapsed graving by collapse additional 2,200 more victims that at this time were in these buildings. The investigation that I started in 2003 had shown the presence of ten inexcusable, prohibitive and fatal mistakes in design of these buildings. WTC-1 and WTC-2 buildings having these mistakes were doomed to collapse in the future without any terrorist attack and any unexpected fire. It terrorist attack did not happen on September 11, 2001, one of WTC-1 or WTC-2 building collapsed by day in nearest years graving nearly 40,000 victims.
