Primates in Medical Research – Bushmitz Moshe & Undertanding Animal Research

Gepost op 30 november 2013 – 14:29 in: Geen categorie

Primates in Medical Research  Moshe Bushmitz and Understanding Animal Research have developed a new educational ebook.   Electronic books are an exciting new platform. They allow images, sound and video to create an interactive display that complements the text. The user experience is more immediately engaging and personal than either a website or text book, providing an immersive educational tool which brings the subject to life. The book has been used here to provide a new type of text on primates. The book has several advantages over traditional textbooks: a large amount of information can be made available in an easily portable format, they can be updated and revised easily and they can be distributed freely.  The book has been developed to help explain the vital role played by non-human primates in medical research programs to students, facility employees, stakeholders and others. We hope that it will help reshape our communications, adapting them to reach a new generation of readers.

The Chase (Wolves Among Us Series) – A. M. Reed

Gepost op 30 november 2013 – 12:52 in: Geen categorie

Tess is from an extremely traditional pack. Returning to her pack after four years away at college, as an unmated female, she must participate in an old pack ritual: the Chase. Unmated wolves from her pack pursue her and the one who catches her gets the ultimate prize: her as a mate. However, Tess knows how males treat their mates and wants no part of it, determined to evade capture during the chase… but can she outrun and outsmart such strong males? Or will she be forced into mating with a male as bad, or perhaps worse, than her abusive father? ~*~ “The Chase” is a standalone werewolf romance short story (just under 10,000 words). It is part of a series, but no other books need to be read in order to understand the events in “The Chase.” Other books in the “Wolves Among Us” series include “Broken,” a novelette, and more are coming soon.

Dans le décor somptueux et aride du Parc national des calanques, près de Marseille, les péripéties d’une femme engagée dans la défense de la nature pour trouver l’amour et découvrir la vérité sur la disparition de son père. Laura Abrigore mène avec ses deux enfants une existence tranquille à Cap Amiral, une petite calanque à une encablure de Cassis. Divorcée, elle vit dans la maison de son père Gilbert, disparu en mer il y a quelques années dans des circonstances inexpliquées. Elle est illustratrice, mais s’occupe aussi activement du PNC, le Parc national des calanques, en lutte contre la construction d’un complexe touristique. Un jour, elle hérite à sa grande surprise d’une parcelle de terrain de son plus proche voisin, Marcel Soubeyran,. Mais, lors d’une étude géologique du site, il s’avère que la falaise de Cap Amiral dont elle a hérité s’effondre. Le cadeau est empoisonné… Laura en fait don au PNC, qui prend alors à sa charge la consolidation. Mais pourquoi Soubeyran lui a-t-il légué cela ? S’agit-il d’une vengeance ? Pour quelle raison ? Alors qu’elle vient de rencontrer Raphaël Ortéga, un restaurateur pour le moins sensible à son charme, et qu’elle semble prête à se donner une nouvelle chance d’aimer, elle découvre, lors d’une plongée avec lui à la pointe du Cap Amiral, l’épave du Lauramor , le bateau sur lequel son père Gilbert a trouvé la mort… Dès lors, le doute n’est plus permis : Laura va devoir se lancer dans une enquête qui risque bien de révéler les pires secrets de famille et les plus infâmes trahisons. Pour le pire, mais aussi pour le meilleur…

Gepost op 30 november 2013 – 11:48 in: Betaalde iPad boeken

A master class in fresh, delicious, French-inspired cooking Since 1995, students have waited months and sometimes years for the privilege of learning to cook with Patricia Wells at Chanteduc, her eighteenth-century Provençal farmhouse, and at her Parisian cooking studio. Now, the culinary legend invites home cooks into her life in France, making the recipes from her popular classes available to fans who dream of embarking on their own gastronomic adventure in the world’s culinary capital. Beautifully designed and lavishly illustrated with stunning color photographs, The French Kitchen Cookbook offers simple yet profound pleasures to Patricia’s students: the satisfaction of preparing a perfect fruit tart; the gratification of extracting a warm, fragrant, golden brioche from the oven; the giddiness of sharing a meal with a group of former strangers who quickly become lifelong friends. Patricia’s meticulously written recipes explain the basics—rules that will help anyone become a better cook—while providing the deep satisfaction that comes from creating exquisite food that extracts the best of fresh ingredients. Here are some of her best recipes for appetizers, desserts, and everything in between, dishes inspired by the vibrant Provençal countryside and the bustle of Parisian life, including Miniature Onion and Goat Cheese Tatins , Zucchini and Basil Velouté, Fricassée of Chicken with Fennel, Capers, Tomatoes and Sausage, and Apricot and Lavender Honey Sorbet. " The French Kitchen Cookbook is about a way of life and a lifestyle of food and entertaining," Patricia writes. "It is all about the joys of combining good food, good wine, and friends altogether around the table—an experience we can enjoy day in and day out, any time."

Noces de charbon – Sophie Chauveau

Gepost op 30 november 2013 – 11:48 in: Betaalde iPad boeken

'Les mensonges de mes parents ont fortifié mon désir de mettre au jour l'histoire de ma famille, tissée de secrets, de mésalliances, d'adultères, histoire qui découle de la grande saga du charbon.'

Dandy, cocotte, grand patron et mineur de fond, orpheline, riche héritière, quelques salauds, une ingénue, une intrigante… autant de personnages romanesques dont la disparition accompagnera celle de l''or noir'. En remontant le filon de ses origines, Sophie Chauveau a reconstitué la traversée d'un siècle, depuis le nord de la France à la fin du XIXe siècle jusqu'à Paris en 1968.
