Название: Living on Flood Plains and Wetlands: A Homeowner's Handbook
Автор: Maureen Gilmer
Издательство: Lyons Press
Год: 2019
Формат: EPUB
Размер: 12 Мб
Язык: английский / English

If you live on a flood plain or wetland, you know the potential dangers—to you, your family, and your home. A major flood could strike at any time and you need to be prepared. But of even more immediate concern is the tiresome battle to keep your property free of minor floods and water seepage, which can be just as destructive—and costly—as a major flood. This all-purpose book guides you through the range of options you have to protect your property. And if a problem already exists, it shows you how to tackle the trouble and put your house back in order. This updated edition includes new information about flood plain laws and insurance as well as changes in government agency titles or roles in flood management.

Название: Slowdown: The End of the Great Acceleration—and Why It's Good for the Planet, the Economy, and Our Lives
Автор: Danny Dorling
Издательство: Yale University Press
Год: 2020
Формат: EPUB
Размер: 39 Мб
Язык: английский / English

The end of our high-growth world was underway well before COVID-19 arrived. In this powerful and timely argument, Danny Dorling demonstrates the benefits of a larger, ongoing societal slowdown. Drawing from an incredibly rich trove of global data, this groundbreaking book reveals that human progress has been slowing down since the early 1970s. Danny Dorling uses compelling visualizations to illustrate how fertility rates, growth in GDP per person, increases in life expectancy, and even the frequency of new social movements have all steadily declined over the last few generations. Perhaps most surprising of all is the fact that even as new technologies frequently reshape our everyday lives and are widely believed to be propelling our civilization into new and uncharted waters, the rate of technological progress is also rapidly dropping. Rather than lament this turn of events, Dorling embraces it as a moment of promise and a move toward stability, and he notes that many of the older great strides in progress that have defined recent history also brought with them widespread warfare, divided societies, and massive inequality.

Формат: EPUB
Размер: 31 Мб

The Cuevas de los Tayos is a cavern complex in the Amazon rain forest of Ecuador. Named for the tayos, the oil birds that reside within them, these caves have countless enigmas connected with them, from the discovery of inexplicable architectural details, to claims of curses and treasures, to dangerous encounters with the indigenous people, the Shuar, for whom the caves are sacred. Sharing his more than 30 years of research into the Tayos Caves as well as his own explorations, Alex Chionetti examines the legends and mysteries associated with this site and the explorers who have ventured within. He details the discovery of the Tayos Cave complex by Hungarian explorer Janos Juan Moricz in the 1960s, including Moricz's claims of finding a metal library with books of gold.

Название: Higher than Everest: Tendi Sherpa: A Lifetime of Climbing the World
Автор: Flore Dussey
Издательство: White Owl
Год: 2022
Формат: EPUB
Размер: 23 Мб
Язык: английский / English

Higher than Everest paints an uncompromising portrait of Tendi Sherpa, who has successfully climbed twenty-one mountains over 8,000m, including fourteen ascents of Everest. This young father, part of the elite group of Nepalese guides, embodies the new generation of Sherpas who are taking their destiny into their own hands. In the numerous conferences he holds throughout the world, he never hesitates to denounce the amateurism and obsession of certain people determined to climb Everest, as well as the over-crowding of the sacred Himalayan mountains. As a child, the man who would go on to save many lives on the Roof of the World once dreamed of becoming a monk, and from his years at the monastery, he still retains a deep attachment to Buddhism and its many rituals. Resolutely looking towards the future, but also concerned about respecting the environment and traditions, Tendi regularly returns to the secluded valley of Khembalung, the land of his ancestors, never forgetting where it is he has come from.

Название: Откровенный империализм — «бремя белого человека»
Автор: Фостер Д.Б.
Издательство: Поколение
Год: 2007
Формат: pdf
Страниц: 322
Размер: 16 mb
Язык: Русский

Вооруженный конфликт во Вьетнаме долгое время считался последней империалистической войной - войной, в результате которой США надеялись укрепить свое политическое и экономическое влияние в Азии. В 1970-е идеологической ширмой, за которой американский капитализм прятал свои хищнические цели, было желание остановить распространение коммунизма. После распада СССР казалось, будто вооруженная борьба с коммунизмом на территории других стран ушла в прошлое.

Год: 2020
Формат: EPUB
Размер: 30 Мб

An unsurpassable, visual tour of the greatest pilgrimage sites of Europe, from North to South; East to West. Pilgrimage in Europe is currently thriving on a scale that simply could not have been envisaged just a few decades ago. Not only are greater numbers of people now emulating the medieval pilgrims who made their way on foot across Europe to the shrines of martyred apostles in Rome (SS Peter and Paul), Santiago de Compostela (St James) and Trondheim (St Olav), but international religious tourism is also thriving and millions each year are now travelling by air, rail and road to Europe’s major pilgrimage churches and famous sites of Marian Apparition such as Lourdes (France) and Fatima (Portugal).
