From the 1940s through the 1960s, young pregnant women entered the front door of a clinic in a small North Georgia town. Sometimes their babies exited out the back, sold to northern couples who were desperate to hold a newborn in their arms. But these weren't adoptions-they were transactions. And one unethical doctor was exploiting other people's tragedies.

Surface Mining Technology (Topics in Mining, Metallurgy and Materials Engineering)
English | 2022 | ISBN: 9811635676 | 360 Pages | PDF | 12 MB
This book gives a brief history and a general overview of the state of surface mining technology with topics ranging from the principles to surface mining methods, systems, and pit planning design. It starts with the definition of surface mine and ends with land reclamation and mine closure. The following chapters address the basics of mineral economics, calculation of stripping ratio; exploitation of difficult parts of ore deposits, slope stability, controlling falls and slides in the surface mines, sorts of freight traffic, scrapers, bulldozers, and loaders. The book serves as a reference text for mining students, engineers, and geologists.

Space, Place and Capitalism: The Literary Geographies of The Unknown Industrial Prisoner
English | 2021 | ISBN: 9811642613 | 210 Pages | PDF EPUB | 4 MB
This book is an original contribution to literary geography and commentaries on the work of David Ireland. It Descriptions the relationship between the spaces and places of 1970s Australian capitalism as it evolves through Ireland's 1971 Miles Franklin prize-winning novel The Unknown Industrial Prisoner. In particular, the book theorises the relationship between space and place in literature through two highly innovative arguments: a focus on the spatial unconscious as a means to assess and track the spatiality of capitalism in the novel form; and the articulation of a regime of space through the perceived, conceived and lived constitution of space. Drawing together concepts from radical geography and structural Marxist literary theory, it explores the dominance of the regime of abstract space in the Australian context. The text also examines the nature and possibilities of place-based strategies of resistance, and concludes by suggesting opportunities for future research and Descriptionting the ways in which The Unknown Industrial Prisoner continues to speak to contemporary Australia.

Robotics in Education
English | 2022 | ISBN: 3030825434 | 318 Pages | PDF | 46 MB
This book comprises the latest achievements in research and development in educational robotics presented at the 12th International Conference on Robotics in Education (RiE), which was carried out as a purely virtual conference from April 28 to 30, 2021. Researchers and educators find valuable methodologies and tools for robotics in education that encourage learning in the fields of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) through the design, creation, and programming of tangible artifacts for creating personally meaningful objects and addressing real-world societal needs. This also involves the introduction of technologies ranging from robotics platforms to programming environments and languages. Evaluation results prove the impact of robotics on the students' interests and competence development. The presented approaches cover the whole educative range from kindergarten, primary and secondary school, to the university level and beyond.

Residual Life Prediction and Optimal Maintenance Decision for a Piece of Equipment
English | 2022 | ISBN: 9811622663 | 278 Pages | PDF | 7 MB
This book addresses remaining life prediction and predictive maintenance of equipment. It systematically summarizes the key research findings made by the author and his team and focuses on how to create equipment performance degradation and residual life prediction models based on the performance monitoring data produced by currently used and historical equipment. Some of the theoretical results covered here have been used to make remaining life predictions and maintenance-related decisions for aerospace products such as gyros and platforms. Given its scope, the book offers a valuable reference guide for those pursuing theoretical or applied research in the areas of fault diagnosis and fault-tolerant control, remaining life prediction, and maintenance decision-making.
