This book is intended as a guide for the working engineer dealing with the management of radioactive waste from nuclear power reactors. Others who would benefit from reading it are plant operators, members of regulatory commissions, researchers, architects, and others needing practical information. Nuclear Power Waste Technology is broken down into eleven chapters, with multiple authorship.
All potentially viable technologies for treating corrosive-containing wastes are identified and discussed in this book. However, emphasis is placed on proven technologies. Each is described in terms of actual performance in removing constiuents of concern, associated process residuals and emissions, and those restrictive waste characteristics affecting the treatment of wastes. Cost and capacity data are also provided, to help assess applicability of the technologies to specific waste streams.

As John Mauldin and Jonathan Tepper deftly illustrate, the 2008 financial crisis was more than a half century in the making. That, however, was merely Act I. In their view, Act II has now begun. The massive household deleveraging and the historic shift of private debt onto government balance sheets represents the end of a sixty-year global debt supercycle. The authors argue that we have now entered the Endgame, a time when bankruptcies and defaults (disguised as "restructuring") will not be of households and companies but of governments. Now, the stakes are higher. The coming crises will offer policymakers few good choices. The times will require extraordinary courage from leaders, courage that so far has been largely absent. Nonetheless, despite this dark forecast, the message in this book is not all doom and gloom. The authors point out positive steps that governments can take. They also offer investors an abundance of useful analysis and expert advice, especially to protect assets and ulimately prosper.
Beautifully illustrated, this book traces the origins of life and its development. In 220 pages, this oversize volume is absorbing and fascinating. The first two pages have some folds; otherwise, the book is in excellent condition. As Charles Darwin put it, in his Origin of Species, "There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one. And that from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been and are being evolved."
With full-color illustrations throughout, this atlas is a delight to read. Here are the chapter headings: Evolution of Man. Framework of the Body. Energy for the Machine. Control Systems. The Senses. The Brain. The Intellect. Defenses of the Body. Reproduction.
