Otl Aichers Texte sind Erkundungen einer "Welt als Entwurf". Sie geh?ren substantiell zu seiner Arbeit. In der Bewegung durch die Geschichte von Denken und Gestalten, Bauen und Konstruieren versichert er sich der M?glichkeiten, die Existenz menschlich einzurichten. Nach wie vor geht es um die Frage, unter welchen Voraussetzungen Zivilisationskultur herstellbar ist. Diese Voraussetzungen m?ssen erstritten werden gegen scheinbare Sachzw?nge und geistige Ersatzangebote. Otl Aicher streitet gern. So enth?lt dieser Band neben Berichten aus der Praxis und historischen Exkursen zu Design und Architektur auch polemische Einlassungen zu kulturpolitischen Themen. Mit produktivem Eigen-Sinn streitet Aicher vor allem f?r die Erneuerung der Moderne, die sich weitgehend in ?sthetischen Visionen ersch?pft habe. Noch immer sei der "Kultursonntag" wichtiger als der Arbeitsalltag. Wolfgang Jean Stock

Environmental chemistry is a fast developing science aimed at deciphering fundamental mechanisms ruling the behaviour of pollutants in ecosystems. Applying this knowledge to current environmental issues leads to the remediation of environmental media, and to new, low energy, low emission, sustainable processes. Chapters review analysis and remediation of pollutants such as greenhouse gases, chiral pharmaceuticals, dyes, chlorinated organics, arsenic, toxic metals and pathogen in air, water, plant and soil. Several highlights include the overlooked impact of air pollutants from buildings for health risk, innovative remediation techniques such as bioreactors for gas treatment, electrochemical cleaning of pharmaceuticals, sequestration on Fe-Mn nodules, phytoremediation and photocatalytical inactivation of microbial pathogens. This book will be a valuable source of information for engineers and students developing novel applied techniques to monitor and clean pollutants in air, wastewater, soils and sediments.
Werden winzige Computer bald an jedem Zentimeter unseres Körpers haften und schließlich ganz mit ihm verschmelzen? Entwickeln wir uns zu Menschmaschinen, indem die Grenzen zwischen biologischen und elektronischen Systemen verschwinden? Das ist keine Sciencefiction-Vision mehr, meinen Claudia Borchard-Tuch und Michael Groß. Wie sehr die Zukunftstechnologie "Biotronik" dem Menschen helfen kann, verdeutlichen Stichworte wie tragbares Gedächtnis und Nanoroboter im Körper. Und noch viele Anwendungen kann man sich vorstellen - wir stehen erst am Beginn einer revolutionären Entwicklung. Mit viel Sachverstand und journalistischem Gespür stellen die beiden Autoren dieses spannende Thema dar. Ein Buch, das man gelesen haben muss!

Introduction In 2010, Jim established the "Genesis II Church of Health and Healing", a non-religious Church with the goal being, "A world without disease". The Genesis II Church is working to protect people's rights to take control of their own Health by taking personal responsibility for it and not allowing others to do it for them. Genesis II members have the God-given unalienable right to choose products for their health, including but not limited to; foods, plants, vitamins, minerals, herbs and all remedies in any quantities they consider useful or necessary for his or her personal health or the health of his or her family. The only prerequisites for membership being: Do good deeds, heal the sick, always to what is right, enlightening those who sleep and working for the freedom of all mankind. As of 7-24-2011, the Genesis II Church has trained 231 Health ministers in 57 countries to help reach the goal, "A world without disease". ??? What this book is about If you are new to MMS, I hope you do not think that this book tells about just another interesting supplement that can help some people after they take it for several months. Not so. This Master Mineral Supplement (MMS) works in a few hours. The #1 killer of mankind in the world today is malaria, a disease that is typically overcome by this supplement in only four hours. This has been proven through clinical trials in Malawi, a country in eastern Africa. In killing the malaria parasite in the body, there was not a single failure and at this writing, more than 800 HIV/AIDS cases have been successfully treated in Malawi, with all the before-and- after tests and records in place. More than 5 million people have used MMS worldwide. After taking the Master Mineral Supplement, people are often disease-free in 5 days and other diseases and conditions simply disappear. If patients in the nearest hospital were treated with this Master Mineral, over 50% of them would be back home within a week and 90% would be home before two months were out. For more than 100 years, clinics and hospitals have used the active ingredient in this supplement to sterilize hospital floors, tables, equipment, and other items. Now this same powerful germ killer can be harnessed by the immune system to safely kill pathogens in the human body. Amazing as it might seem, when MMS is taken correctly, the immune system can use it to kill only those germs, bacteria and viruses that are harmful to the body. MMS does not affect the friendly bacteria in the body nor any of the healthy cells. It is one of the same chemicals that the body’s immune system manufactures to kill pathogens and other harmful microorganisms in the body. MMS is the greatest solution to mankind’s diseases and ills now known. It is not a drug. I have provided complete details on how to make this supplement in your kitchen, buying most of the ingredients off the shelf. It is entirely possible that you will save someone’s life or your own. Because MMS functions as a supercharger to the immune system, it is not meant for treatment of any particular disease; rather, it has been found to improve the immune system to the point of overcoming most diseases, frequently in less than 24 hours. My purpose in writing this book is to spread the information more widely. This information is far too important to allow any one person, one group or even several groups to have control of it. It is information that the world should have. After 5 years of seeing practically nothing done by a group that could have done a great deal, I finally realized that the information had to be distributed to as many people as possible or someone would always be out of the loop and not receiving this life-saving data. It regularly occurs that a great deal of important medical information is withheld from the public that could have saved lives. It is my intention to prevent that from happening with this information. Jim V. Humble
