A good knowledge of the Language of Heaven will prepare you to better understand the Holy Bible, the teachings of Jesus Christ, his parables, and the miracles he performed. This book will introduce you to the Language of Heaven, answer your questions about heaven, prepare you for the struggles of this world, and ultimately help to prepare you for Jesus Christ.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

"Blackout is an important and timely book. In the form of this compact volume, one of the best and most productive peak oil authors working today has turned his customary scholarhsip, wisdom, wit and writing prowess to some of the most ciritical issues now unfolding on our planet. "- Frank Kaminski, Energy Bulletin Coal fuels about 50% of US electricity production and provides a quarter of the country’s total energy. China and India’s ferocious economic growth is based on coal-generated electricity. Coal currently looks like a solution to many of our fast-growing energy problems. However, while coal advocates are urging full steam ahead, increasing reliance on the dirtiest of all fossil fuels has crucial implications for climate science, energy policy, the world economy, and geopolitics. Drawbacks to a coal-based energy strategy include: Scarcity—new studies prove that the peak of usable coal production may actually be less than two decades away. Cost—the quality of produced coal is declining, while the expense of transport is rising, leading to spiralling costs and potential shortages. Climate impacts—our ability to deal with the historic challenge of climate change may hinge on reducing our coal consumption in future years. Blackout goes to the heart of the tough energy questions that will dominate every sphere of public policy throughout the first half of this century, and it is a must-read for planners, educators, and anyone concerned about energy consumption, peak oil, and climate change. Richard Heinberg is a journalist, editor, lecturer, and senior fellow of the Post Carbon Institute. He is one of the world’s foremost peak oil educators and the award-winning author of seven previous books, including Peak Everything and The Party’s Over.

World Health Report 2012  No Health Without Research
Author: iMedPub
Publisher: iMedPub
Release Date: 2013-10-09
Pages: 152
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

It seems astonishing that in the 21st century decisions on health care can still be made without a solid grounding in research evidence. This is true even in clinical research, whether for simple or complex interventions, where systematic reviews time and time again conclude that the evidence base is inadequate. It is even more true in the areas of health policy and health systems, where quality research is hampered further by a lack of shared definitions, a lack of consensus on guiding principles, poor capacity (especially in low-resource regions), and methodological challenges. The WHR 2012 aims to provide impetus for a change to the problematic state of affairs of health research. Given the stated goals of the report, of particular importance is the documentation and sharing of real experiences from the countries where the research has been done. The actual evidence on whether patents impede innovation or inventiveness in biomedicine is in a word, ambiguous. Yet firms clearly tend to avoid research projects for which there are many existing patents. Both the process of determining which potentially relevant patents are important to our search project and the negotiations for access to them candely, but less often kills, innovation. In industry and universities, researchers adopt strategies of licensing, inventing around patents, going offshore, the development tand use of public data base and research tools, court challenges and using the technology without a license (i.e. infringement) to achieve their particular goals. This raises the question, what are the sevarious design around actions manifestations of, if not actual patent blockages or threats of the same? We act as if the anticommons block to innovation is real. Perception is reality. Patents, or perhaps only the fear of their enforcement, inhibit biomedical innovation. If we knew how strong the inhibition really was, we would be having a different debate. The system must be reformed so that public goods such as genuine innovation and access to HCTs are not sacrifice on the altar of a private gain. This reform must prioritize the public good, use innovative policy tools to harness the private sector where it is possible to do so, and create public R&D capacity where market forces and actors are likely to continue to fail."
