Fans of Marian Keyes will love "The Space Between Us", a heart-breaking story of friendship from award-nominated author, Anna McPartlin. From babyhood Eve and Lily were best friends. But one huge fight and 17 years later Eve wakes up from a horrific accident to find her old friend nursing her. At first, their reunion is tentative but during Eve's many months in hospital they confront both the lies of the past and their present failures. And each clearly sees how the other needs to change her life: Lily must get out of an impossible marriage and Eve has to face up to the pain she has caused others. The crisis that brought Eve and Lily together again seems like a blessing that has given them a second chance to be there for each other when they most need someone to lean on. Little do they suspect that their friendship is under a threat that will change the future forever..."Anna McPartlin can make you feel despair and sadness but she can also make you see the light at the end of the tunnel.

From 1987 until our days, the shoreline north of the lake is almost urbanized. The importance of this space comes from the fact that it offers the urban aspects very researched by the different urban activities. Can we then say it is a space which has been able to escape the law of the land market matching activities of strong investment value on the places the more attractive. However, by visiting the Lake there is a belief that it is located in front of a space or coalesce the tertiary activities rather than another polyfonctionnel with a planned allocation as balanced between the various urban functions. It simply prints the real to release the gaps between the planned and the achieved. Which attracted our attention during our whole investigation, has been the relatively large number of closed premises in the area of the lake. These premises have they not yet dedicated to an urban activity? Or are they open until a recent date and their closures being dictated by the problems specific to the activity? These questions will allow us to see if the space of the lake is well utilized and the closure was for economic reasons specific to establishments or the contrary.
The book considers the integration projects within the post-Soviet space, one of the most interesting and topical issues of today. The author investigates the premises and principal trends in integration, analyzes the political, economic, and social interaction between Russia and the countries of the post-Soviet space; determines and evaluates factors leading to disintegration. Special attention is paid to such issues as cooperation in education, learning, and culture, the prospects of forming a common informational space.
The cricothyroid (CT) space is the interval between the anterior inferior border of the thyroid cartilage and the anterior superior border of the cricoid cartilage. It is well documented that the CT space opens and closes with changes in pitch, narrowing with rising pitch and widening with falling pitch. Previous studies have suggested that the CT space is the most important anatomical dimension of the larynx in determining vocal range. Further, in excised larynges from cadavers it was shown that a nearly linear relationship exists between vocal pitch and CT distance. This study investigates the relationship between the anterior height of the resting CT space measured using ultrasound and performance vocal range in female singers. Potential associations with and between voice categories (soprano and mezzo-soprano), age, ethnicity, anthropometric indices (weight, height, BMI), neck dimensions (circumference and length), laryngeal dimensions (anterior thyroid and cricoid cartilages heights) and speaking fundamental frequency are also explored.
Emotions bring color and meaning to our lives, but they can also put us on an exhausting rollercoaster ride that takes us to blissful peak states, the depths of delusion and despair, and everything in between. It is only by learning to relate to our emotions skillfully that we benefit from their richness and glean wisdom, rather than letting them control us. Emotions get their power from a simple but deep-seated source: our lack of self-knowledge. When we bring awareness to our experience of emotions, something truly amazing happens: they lose their power to make us miserable.In this book, Rinpoche leads us through the three steps of his Emotional Rescue Plan. Mindful Gap is the practice of creating a safe distance between you and your emotions, which gives you the psychological space to work with their energy. Clear Seeing involves recognizing the bigger picture. Last, Letting Go is the practice of releasing stressful physical and emotional energy through exercise, relaxation, and awareness. With each step, we become increasingly familiar with the inner workings of our emotions, seeing straight to the heart of anger, fear, passion, jealousy, and pride. With time and practice, instead of leading us astray, our emotions become our guide towards living a more compassionate, creative, and fulfilling life.
This book studies the role of the Persian Gulf oil as a geoeconomic factor in the US military intervention in the Persian Gulf region. This role is related to the US attempts to preserve its world leadership position and reconstruct a new geopolitical world order. This study focuses on analyzing the US geopolitical code during the first term of the George W. Bush presidency between 2001 and 2004. Data analysis reveals that there has always been a close connection between geopolitical codes of the United States and its world leadership position. Since the Second World War, the importance of the Persian Gulf region remained as prominent geopolitical assumption in defining the US geopolitical codes and based on US geopolitical codes, all threats to this vital area must be countered by force. That justified a pre-emptive war against Iraq to preserve US interests. It would mean reinforcing the US presence in the region as well as controlling the richest oil area in the world. It would help to impose the US global geopolitical code on other states in the reconstruction of the new geopolitical world order in order that the US world leadership would continue.
Public spaces reflect the social life and interaction of people When this social interaction is missed in a public space it means the public space is lost. Lost space is a production of urban space left by people if it continues, we will lose the place. In the lost space we just have an unusable land in the urban environment whereas, when we lost a place not only people’s memories and imagined being forgotten from a space but also the identity to be lost and the characteristic of the city and citizenship will decline sharply. The perceptions of the environment due to differences in humans and some special factors in their way of life are not the same so the meaning of lost space between residents and passersby is different. The variables of space, which associate the meaning of lost space for people, were not identified;so there is a big gap in designing lost spaces to bringing back to the people and life cycle. This study has concentrated on the lost space to identify the variables of it which convey the meaning of lost space to people, also comparing the perception of residents and passersby of a lost space in the urban environment to extract the perceptual factors of lost space.
The book discusses about the comparision between Cumulative Semivariogram technique and widely used Semivariogram modelling technique. In this book both the techniques are tested on Bouguer anomaly data. The value of bouguer anomaly is predicted using Ordinary Kriging method. This book is referred for the academicians who wishes to carry out geostatistical projects to predict the behaviour of not only bouguer anomaly but for any regionalized variable in space. The book also discusses about the software developed by us to carry out geostatistical modelling.
For years, space enthusiasts have imagined people in spaceships colonizing the cosmos, and for more than four decades, US presidents have been predicting a real-life journey to Mars. Little progress, however, has been made since the halcyon days of the Mercury and Apollo programs--until now. Chris Davenport tells the story of the "Space Barons"--notably Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos, but also Richard Branson and Paul Allen--and their unbelievably big ambitions to revive the US manned space program and reignite ancient dreams.These tycoons, with deep imaginations and deeper wallets, have ambitions to go far into space, well beyond the lower Earth orbit of the International Space Station. They are the founders of some of the biggest brands in the world--Amazon, Tesla, PayPal, Microsoft, Virgin--and have poured hundreds of millions of their own money into their new companies, betting that space tourism, asteroid mining, CubeSats (satellites the size of shoe boxes), and other new ventures will prove to be the next great technological revolution. For them, this is about more than monetizing space and space travel; it's exploration for exploration's sake: striking out with one destination in mind, but finding something else entirely. "Do we want," Elon Musk asks, "a future where we are forever confined to one planet until some eventual extinction event--however far in the future that might occur? Or do we want to become a multi-planet species, ultimately out there among the stars?"With an inside track on the businesses, rivalries, and rocketry that are fueling the new space race, The Space Barons is the story of how these billionaires plan to open the space frontier, extending humanity's reach and fulfilling the dreams of a generation.
Endorsed by authors, teachers, and scientists alike, Mike Mongo's ASTRONAUT INSTRUCTION MANUAL excites a new generation of space explorers. This audiobook, designed for children between the ages of 6 and 13, encourages listeners to articulate and illustrate their own vision of next-generation space travel. THE ASTRONAUT INSTRUCTION MANUAL captures a new era of enthusiasm for space exploration, driven in part by new space celebrities (Commander Chris Hadfield, Elon Musk), and in part by a shift in popular interest in space (SpaceX rockets, The Mars Colonial Transporter, Kerbal).
