About this Item: Instructingcom, LLC, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. I m a vampire and I m your manager. I d rather drink your blood than coffee. Your job sucks because you work for me. For years I ve owned you, controlled you, and made your life miserable, but not anymore. I m retiring and I m sharing some secrets that just might get me killed. I don t care - I m dead already. Vampires rule over corporate fiefdoms and control workers by the minute. You know you re working for a vampire when your manager doesn t care about your goals, your family life, and the misery you endure just to do your job. If you hate your job because of your manager, your coworkers, or because you can t afford to quit, you re probably working for a vampire. You might dream of breaking free from the corporate graveyard to pursue your life s passion. People warn you not to get your hopes up. To hell with them. Get your hopes up. Try hard and harder. Create goals. If you want to achieve you have to get your hopes up or there s nothing for you to look forward to. If you aren t willing to take a chance, come by my office, bare your neck, and I ll put you out of our misery. Vampire Management: Why Your Job Sucks is a biting look at today s corporate environment and its control of the workforce. Management consultant and author Joseph Phillips explores the dynamics of office life from the viewpoint of a bitter and aging vampire. It s an honest look at why so many workers are unhappy in their careers, feel stuck in a job they hate, and how people can escape from vampire managers. This is a read you can sink your teeth into.

About this Item: Scientific Publishers, 2008. Hardcover. Condition: New. Biological diversity encompasses all species of animals, plants, micro-organisms, ecosystem and ecological processes of which they are part. Biodiversity provides the basis for life on earth. The more we know about Earth`s biological diversity, the better will be our capability to conserve both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Expanding human population, overexploitation of natural resources, habitat loss and pollution are contributing to a great extent to the rapid degradation of environmental quality, with its irreversible loss or depletion of species diversity. The current perception is therefore to frame strategies to conserve biodiversity otherwise the future generation will blame us for robbing them for their life support systems. This book includes original research articles on various aspects of Biodiversity and its Conservation presented by eminent Scientists working within the country and abroad.

Biological diversity encompasses all species of animals, plants, micro-organisms, ecosystem and ecological processes of which they are part. Biodiversity provides the basis for life on earth. The more we know about Earth`s biological diversity, the better will be our capability to conserve both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.

Countries rich in biodiversity need to save it from destruction. In India many institutions involved in conservation and utilization of biodiversity come under the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of Science and Technology. They are concerned with conservation of biosphere reserve National Park wildlife sanctuaries and field gene banks etc. India being a basically agricultural country the policymakers must realize the top priority of conservation and sustainable utilization of biodiversity among developmental planning. Biodiversity is humankind's biological life insurance. Implementation now is essential for the well being of future generations and ourselves. Biodiversity and Sustainable Livelihood contains selected papers by eminent professors academicians researchers and scientists of different parts of India and abroad pertaining to a variety of issues and dimensions of Biodiversity and sustainable livelihood. It is expected that this book will profusely assist the policymakers researchers conservation and management personnel and general readers for policy implications. 216 pp. Seller Inventory # 76167

About this Item: Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM, 2013. Wraps. Condition: Very good. Kelly L. Parker (illustrator). Presumed First Edition/First Printing. ii, 20, and both sides of rear cover. Illustrations (most in color). Plutonium is a transuranic radioactive chemical element with symbol Pu and atomic number 94. It is an actinide metal of silvery-gray appearance that tarnishes when exposed to air, and forms a dull coating when oxidized. The element normally exhibits six allotropes and four oxidation states. It reacts with carbon, halogens, nitrogen, silicon and hydrogen. When exposed to moist air, it forms oxides and hydrides that can expand the sample up to 70% in volume, which in turn flake off as a powder that is pyrophoric. It is radioactive and can accumulate in bones, which makes the handling of plutonium dangerous. Plutonium was first produced and isolated on December 14, 1940 by Dr. Glenn T. Seaborg, Joseph W. Kennedy, Edwin M. McMillan, and Arthur C. Wahl by deuteron bombardment of uranium-238 in the 60-inch cyclotron at the University of California, Berkeley. They first synthesized neptunium-238 (half-life 2.1 days) which subsequently beta-decayed to form a new heavier element with atomic number 94 and atomic weight 238 (half-life 87.7 years). Uranium had been named after the planet Uranus and neptunium after the planet Neptune, and so element 94 was named after Pluto, which at the time was considered to be a planet as well. Wartime secrecy prevented them from announcing the discovery until 1948. Plutonium is the heaviest element to occur in nature as trace quantities arising similarly from the neutron capture of natural uranium-238. Plutonium is much more common on Earth since 1945 as a product of neutron capture and beta decay, where some of the neutrons released by the fission process convert uranium-238 nuclei into plutonium-239. Both plutonium-239 and plutonium-241 are fissile, meaning that they can sustain a nuclear chain reaction, leading to applications in nuclear weapons and nuclear reactors. Plutonium-240 exhibits a high rate of spontaneous fission, raising the neutron flux of any sample containing it. The presence of plutonium-240 limits a plutonium sample's usability for weapons or its quality as reactor fuel, and the percentage of plutonium-240 determines its grade (weapons-grade, fuel-grade, or reactor-grade). Plutonium-238 has a half-life of 88 years and emits alpha particles. It is a heat source in radioisotope thermoelectric generators, which are used to power some spacecraft. Plutonium isotopes are expensive and inconvenient to separate, so particular isotopes are usually manufactured in specialized reactors. Producing plutonium in useful quantities for the first time was a major part of the Manhattan Project during World War II that developed the first atomic bombs. The Fat Man bombs used in the Trinity nuclear test in July 1945, and in the bombing of Nagasaki in August 1945, had plutonium cores. Human radiation experiments studying plutonium were conducted without informed consent, and several criticality accidents, some lethal, occurred after the war. Disposal of plutonium waste from nuclear power plants and dismantled nuclear weapons built during the Cold War is a nuclear-proliferation and environmental concern. Other sources of plutonium in the environment are fallout from numerous above-ground nuclear tests, now banned. Seller Inventory # 72871
