Adam Brown's acclaimed diaTribe column, Adam's Corner, has brought life-transforming diabetes tips to over 1 million people since 2013. In this highly actionable guide, he shares the food, mindset, exercise, and sleep strategies that have had the biggest positive impact on his diabetes - and hopefully yours too! Bright Spots & Landmines is filled with hundreds of effective diabetes tips, questions, and shortcuts, including what to eat to minimize blood sugar swings; helpful strategies to feel less stressed, guilty, and burned out; and simple ways to improve exercise and sleep. Along the way, Adam argues that the usual focus on problems and mistakes in diabetes (Landmines) misses the bigger opportunity: Bright Spots. By identifying what's working and finding ways to do those things more often, we can all live healthier, happier, and more hopeful lives. Whether you are newly diagnosed or have had type 1 or type 2 diabetes for over 50 years, this book delivers on its promise: practical diabetes advice that works immediately.

Unexploded Ordnance Detection And Mitigation

The chapters in this volume were presented at the July–August 2008 NATO Advanced Study Institute on Unexploded Ordnance Detection and Mitigation. The conference was held at the beautiful Il Ciocco resort near Lucca, in the glorious Tuscany region of northern Italy. For the ninth time we gathered at this idyllic spot to explore and extend the reciprocity between mathematics and engineering. The dynamic interaction between world-renowned scientists from the usually disparate communities of pure mathematicians and applied scientists which occurred at our eight previous ASI’s continued at this meeting. The detection and neutralization of unexploded ordnance (UXO) has been of major concern for very many decades; at least since the First World war. UXO continues to be the subject of intensive research in many ?elds of science, incl- ing mathematics, signal processing (mainly radar and sonar) and chemistry. While today’s headlines emphasize the mayhem resulting from the placement of imp- vised explosive devices (IEDs), humanitarian landmine clearing continues to draw signi?cant global attention as well. In many countries of the world, landmines threaten the population and hinder reconstruction and fast, ef?cient utilization of large areas of the mined land in the aftermath of military con?icts.

Written by leaders in the field of remote sensing information processing, this book covers the frontiers of remote sensors, especially with effective algorithms for signal/image processing and pattern recognition with remote sensing data. Sensor and data fusion issues, SAR images, hyperspectral images, and related special topics are also examined. Techniques making use of neural networks, wavelet transforms, and knowledge-based systems are emphasized. A special set of three chapters is devoted to seismic analysis and discrimination. In summary, the book provides an authoritative treatment of major topics in remote sensing information processing and defines new frontiers for these areas. Contents:Data MiningSAR Image ProcessingWavelet Analysis and ApplicationsMilitary Applications of Remote SensingMicrowave Remote SensingStatistical Pattern RecognitionAutomatic Target SegmentationNeural NetworksChange DetectionSeismic Signal ProcessingTime Series PredictionImage CompressionEmerging Topics Readership: Engineers and scientists dealing with remote sensing data in particular, and signals and images in general; computer scientists involved in software development on geophysical data analysis.

‘In this book, written with first-hand knowledge and a deep care for the Khmer people, (the author and photographer) show that Cambodia exemplifies a worldwide plague of suffering; and they propose what can be done to end the suffering. I cannot recommend their work too highly’ John Pilger ‘The high photographic content will place the book in an althogether different genre of reporting than the landmine issue has so far received. It incorporates virtually all the esisting research done of the mine problem in Cambodia to date, as well as including original information’ Ed Miles, Vietnam Veterans of America Foundation ‘War of the Mines is a passionately detailed study of mines in a single country ... the most thorough account yet published of their effect on a civilian population ... a significant contribution to the growing awareness in the West of the peculiar perniciousness of these weapons’ John Ryle, Times Literary Supplement War of the Mines is the first illustrated study of the impact of landmine warfare on communities in Cambodia. After several visits to the country, Davies and Dunlop have meticulously documented the history of landmine warfare in a country where, it is estimated, there are more landmines than there are people. This book focuses on one particular district, Rattanak Mondul in Battambang province - the region which has had one of the highest concentrations of landmines. Through hard-hitting, yet unsensational, photographs and the personal accounts of landmine victims and military personnel, War of the Mines offers a powerful description of the horrors of landmine warfare.

An “Unnecessary” War is a researched readable account of the Korean Conflict, told an Air Force Officer who served with the 3rd Bomb Wing (Light). (Not until 1986 did the US Congress declare the Korean War to be a real war) The cost in human and material loss in the three war years was huge. Any gain is still difficult to assess. Communism was halted, but a grim totalitarian regime was left in place that is now a nuclear thorn in the side of the planet. The book discusses in some detail, the political and financial (yes-financial) decisions made by UN and US political leaders leading to Chairman Mao’s and Joe Stalin’s approval of Kim Il Sung’s ill-considered crusade to invade the South. (Kim Il Sung was the grandfather of our present pesky North Korean Kim, who seems to blame his self-inflicted ills on America) Most recounts of the Korean War are either biased or too detailed for the non-military reader. This book was written for the rest of us, and contains hopefully unbiased judgmental information not available elsewhere in a single writing. The book contents are set in chronological order with descriptions of major battles, discussions of conflicts, weaknesses, and interplay of US commanders, particularly the actions, sometimes inexplicable, of Douglas MacArthur. It also contains a summary of casualties and losses, orders of battle of both the US Army and USAF, and descriptions of Communist forces committed at critical times. Discussions of the efforts of other UN members, particularly the British Commonwealth and Turkish forces give an insight to the contribution and sacrifices of our comrades-in-arms. With access to USAF “frag” orders at the time, the air war descriptions here are likely more accurate than in USAF published histories tending to glorify USAF contributions. Post Korean War discussions with National Guard comrades with the 2d Division during the disastrous Chongchon rout, add an eyes-on contribution to the discussion of this engagement.
