We cannot explain why people kill themselves. There are no necessary or sufficient causes for suicide, so rather than explaining suicide (looking for causes), perhaps we can understand suicide, at least in one individual, a phenomenological approach. This book begins by examining the diaries from eight individuals who killed themselves. Using qualitative analyses, supplemented in some cases by quantitative analyses, Lester seeks to uncover the unique thoughts and feelings that led these individuals to take their own lives. Lester has also studied suicide notes, the poems of those who died by suicide (both famous poets and unpublished poets), the letters written by suicides, blogs and twitter feeds, and one tape recording of a young man who killed himself just an hour or so after he recorded the tape. This book will give you insights into the “I” of the storm, the suicidal mind.

Anknüpfend an die Tradition der Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gesellschaft ist die Max-Planck-Gesellschaft heute eine einzigartige Institution der Grundlagenforschung, die weltweit Attraktivität und Vorbildwirkung besitzt. Auf welchen Erfahrungen und Prinzipien beruht diese Wirkung? Wie fanden die Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gesellschaft und dann die Max-Planck-Gesellschaft ihre Themen, wo wurden Durchbrüche erreicht und welche strukturellen Voraussetzungen haben erreichte Erfolge? Wie verhält sich die Dynamik der Wissenschaftsentwicklung zur gesellschaftlichen Dynamik? Wie hat sich ihr Selbstverständnis im Laufe der über hundert Jahre ihres Bestehens gewandelt? Wie finanziert sie sich? Schließen das „Harnack-Prinzip“ als institutionelles Markenzeichen und ein „Großbetrieb der Wissenschaft“ einander aus? Wie haben Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gesellschaft und Max-Planck-Gesellschaft die großen politischen Umbrüche des 20. Jahrhunderts erlebt und überlebt? Mit einer Politik der Entpolitisie-rung? Das sind Überlegungen und Fragen, denen die zwölf Autorinnen und Autoren dieses Sammelbands in ihren Beiträgen nachgehen. Sie sind hervorgegangen aus einem Kolloquium, das 2010/11 anlässlich des 100-jährigen Jubiläums der Gesellschaft im Max-Planck-Institut für Wissenschaftsgeschichte in Berlin stattfand.

The ISES Solar World Congress, held in Denver, Colorado in August 1991 attracted over 1000 participants from nearly 70 countries, making it the largest solar energy event of its kind in the world. As a lasting record of that congress, 630 papers are published here in 4 volumes of proceedings. Volume 1 is dedicated to solar energy, biofuels and renewable resources. Volume 2 contains papers on active solar and solar heat. Passive solar, socio-economic and educational aspects are considered in Volume 3, and finally the plenary sessions, and the Farrington Daniels lecture are published in Volume 4. 1991 Solar World Congress presents the very latest advances in the utilization of alternative energy resources and technology.

According to the World Health Organization, more than 40 million people in the world are affected with dementia. To date, 60-70% of the cases of dementia are attributed to the Alzheimer's disease (AD). This neurodegenerative disorder gradually takes place over a period of at least 20 years before the onset of symptoms, which are impaired memory, apathy and depression. The characteristics of AD consist in neurofibrillary tangles (intraneuronal aggregates of hyperphosphorylated tau proteins) and senile plaques (dense extraneuronal deposits composed of amyloid ß (Aß)). The other features linked to these two core pathological hallmarks of AD are inflammation, oxidative stress, progressive synaptic and neuronal loss. In past years, some of the emerging therapeutic strategies against AD were employed to deal with the pathological hallmarks of the disease. Science teams all over the world try to restore the tau phosphorylation equilibrium. Their purpose is to interfere with the aggregation of tau and decrease its amount of proteins per se as well. Furthermore, they are trying either to stimulate the elimination processes of the aggregated tau proteins or to stop the formation of Aß peptides. This could be reached by the stimulation of the classic techniques of protein degradation such as the autophagic pathway, or by the targeted immunotherapy. In this Research Topic, we wish to summarize and review the etiology of AD and the related therapeutic opportunities for the next decades. To fully understand the precise mechanisms underlying AD, research findings, reviews, new insights and new approaches include AD and related tauopathies, tau phosphorylation balance, pharmacological compounds against AD, neuroprotection strategies and new therapeutic ways but also risk factors for AD and AD genetic information are included in this issue.

The exponential explosion of images and videos concerns everybody's common life, since this media is now present everywhere and in all human activities. Scientists, artists and engineers, in any field, need to be aware of the basic mechanisms that allow them to understand how images are essentially information carriers. Images bear a strong evocative power because their perception quickly brings into mind a number of related pictorial contents of past experiences and even of abstract concepts like pleasure, attraction or aversion.

This book analyzes the visual hints, thanks to which images are generally interpreted, processed and exploited both by humans and computer programs.

  • Comprehensive introductory text
  • Introduces the reader to the large world of imagery on which many human activities are based, from politics to entertainment, from technical reports to artistic creations
  • Provides a unified framework where both biological and artificial vision are discussed through visual cues, through the role of contexts and the available multi-channels to deliver information

      The ABCs of Human Survival examines the effect of militant nationalism and the lawlessness of powerful states on the well-being of individuals and local communities―and the essential role of global citizenship within that dynamic. Based on the analysis of world events, Dr. Arthur Clark presents militant nationalism as a pathological pattern of thinking that threatens our security, while emphasizing effective democracy and international law as indispensable frameworks for human protection. Within the contexts of history, sociology, philosophy, and spirituality, The ABCs of Human Survival calls into question the assumptions of consumer culture and offers, as an alternative, strategies to improve overall well-being through the important choices we make as individuals.

      Abiotic stresses are the major cause that limits productivity of crop plants worldwide. Plants have developed intricate machinery to respond and adapt over these adverse environmental conditions both at physiological and molecular levels. Due to increasing problems of abiotic stresses, plant biotechnologists and breeders need to employ new approaches to improve abiotic stress tolerance in crop plants. Although current research has divulged several key genes, gene regulatory networks and quantitative trait loci that mediate plant responses to various abiotic stresses, the comprehensive understanding of this complex trait is still not available. This e-book is focused on molecular genetics and genomics approaches to understand the plant response/adaptation to various abiotic stresses. It includes different types of articles (original research, method, opinion and review) that provide current insights into different aspects of plant responses and adaptation to abiotic stresses.
