Low health literacy is a curse to be avoided. This effort should be supported by all healthcare providers, stakeholders, and even government and community leaders.
For industrial, automotive, and aeronautical applications, hydraulic actuators and hydraulic valves have an essential role to deliver and regulate forces and moments. The evolution of hydraulic systems to cover the demands of Industry 4.0 through the digitation of hydraulic valves makes the automatic control of hydraulic actuators crucial for production lines and processes. This book focus on automatic control algorithms for hydraulic actuators (robust tracking controllers, flatness-based control approach, optimized fuzzy sliding mode controllers, neural network and nonlinear disturbance observers)
Our book entitled “A Closer Look at Chemical Kinetics” is announced on the NOVA website: A Closer Look at Chemical Kinetics This book proposes a closer look at chemical kinetics, which in this specific case, should be understood as a more detailed study of the connections of this discipline with other branches of chemistry and, […]
The title of this short write-up, if I am to call it so, is a forthcoming edited book with contributors largely coming from the Global South, and Ghana, specifically. There are three other contributors from England and India respectively. This is a detailed work on lifelong learning from the Global South and a must-read book. […]
The main and important focus of the book is to address issues related to the deterioration of Kashmir lakes. This book will raise awareness about the plight of the important Kashmir lakes and the measures for their protection and restoration. Until now, there is no book or book chapter, or review available in the literature that reports the issues that we are addressing in this book. Besides, the research that has been carried out on Kashmir lakes has not been reviewed, and thus we have reviewed the available literature on Kashmir lakes for the benefit of mankind and the scientific community. The description of the water quality, biodiversity and deterioration of Kashmir lakes in Chapters 2-6 will be greatly helpful to readers. Besides, Chapter 7, wherein the scientific vision for the protection and restoration of Kashmir lakes has been discussed shall direct the researchers and government agencies for the development of protocols for the protection of these important Kashmir lakes.

Narratives guide our lives in so many ways. They tell us to leap into our most dangerous roles, guide us in our most difficult tasks, but also keep us focused on our routine duties. Last week was full of those mundane meetings that it is fashionable to disparage as unnecessary, even annoying. During the pandemic […]
The worst present decision is to close down future possibilities because of lingering past traumas.
Last three decades have witnessed serious deterioration of major Kashmir lakes (Wular, Dal, Nigeen, Anchar and Manasbal) due to pollution of their water and large-scale encroachment in their surroundings. Quite a good amount of research work has been carried out on the growing state of deterioration of the above named five indispensable lakes of Kashmir valley. This book gives a glimpse of the overview of these lakes along with a discussion of their water quality, diversity of flora and fauna, deterioration, state of encroachment, and the vision for their protection and restoration. This book will raise awareness about the plight of the important Kashmir lakes and the measures for their protection and restoration. Interestingly, this book compiles the most recent information on the water quality, biodiversity and the state of deterioration of the five major indispensable lakes of Kashmir valley. The discussion of the scientific vision for the protection and restoration of Kashmir lakes will greatly help our book to become a standout choice for the readers.
About the book: “This is a worth-reading book about the recent developments in Linear Algebra and it includes contributions of fourteen authors from all over the world. The themes analyzed by the researchers in the ten chapters include quadratic optimization, matrix pencils, generalized inverses, matrix equations, maximal and minimal ranks and inertias, triangular matrices (tables) […]
Look for some new responsibilities, because it is responsibilities (those roles in which we interact with others) that give meaning and purpose to our lives.
In recent years, tens of thousands of homes, commercial and institutional buildings have sustained severe structural damage due to the aggregates used in construction not being inert. An excess of naturally occurring reactive iron sulfides in the rock, is all that it takes to cause devastation within a few years of construction. These largescale problems have occurred in the United States, Canada and Ireland, despite these countries having well established building codes and standards. A new book explores how excess sulfides, mainly pyrite and pyrrhotite, in aggregates can be defined and identified in advance and it describes how the risk of future damage can be quantified. In keeping with the theme of Pyrite & Pyrrhotite, the book will also feature some innovative research into sustainable uses of pyrite.
This monograph comprises 12 chapters starting from Introduction to microhabitats, taxonomy and biostratigraphy. The main focus is on Classification and Taxonomic descriptions of deep water benthic foraminifera from the Indian Ocean, with brrief introduction on microhabitats and water mass associations.
This book addresses a topic of great relevance today, considering that in developed countries, most of the time is spent indoors; therefore, indoor residential environments have a direct influence on human health. Furthermore, in developing countries, significant levels of indoor pollution make housing unsafe, which has an impact on the health of its inhabitants; thus, housing is a key factor in the health of people around the world. In this book we look at a range of innovative research and evidence-based policy ideas that demonstrate the importance of housing research and policy for health and well-being.

Violence is defined by the WHO as a conscious effort to injure yourself or someone else. Stick the word ‘gun’ in front of the word ‘violence’ and we have the idea that gun violence is the conscious attempt to injure yourself or someone else by using a gun. What does that mean?
