In the latter part of the last century there lived a man of science, an eminent proficient in every branch of natural philosophy, who not long before our story opens had made experience of a spiritual affinity more attractive than any chemical one. He had left his laboratory to the care of an assistant, cleared his fine countenance from the furnace smoke, washed the stain of acids from his fingers, and persuaded a beautiful woman to become his wife. In those days when the comparatively recent discovery of electricity and other kindred mysteries of Nature seemed to open paths into the region of miracle, it was not unusual for the love of science to rival the love of woman in its depth and absorbing energy. The higher intellect, the imagination, the spirit, and even the heart might all find their congenial aliment in pursuits which, as some of their ardent votaries believed, would ascend from one step of powerful intelligence to another, until the philosopher should lay his hand on the secret of creative force and perhaps make new worlds for himself.
In The Lives of Michel Foucault, David Macey quotes the iconic French philosopher as speaking ?nostalgically?of ´an unforgettable evening on LSD, in carefully prepared doses, in the desert night, with delicious music, [and] nice people´?. This came to pass in 1975, when Foucault spent Memorial Day weekend in Southern California at the invitation of Simeon Wade-ostensibly to guest-lecture at the Claremont Graduate School where Wade was an assistant professor, but in truth to explore what he called the Valley of Death. Led by Wade and Wade´s partner Michael Stoneman, Foucault experimented with psychotropic drugs for the first time; by morning he was crying and proclaiming that he knew Truth. Foucault in California is Wade´s firsthand account of that long weekend. Felicitous and often humorous prose vaults readers headlong into the erudite and subversive circles of the Claremont intelligentsia: parties in Wade´s bungalow, intensive dialogues between Foucault and his disciples at a Taoist utopia in the Angeles Forest (whose denizens call Foucault ?Country Joe?); and, of course, the fabled synesthetic acid trip in Death Valley, set to the strains of Bach and Stockhausen. Part search for higher consciousness, part bacchanal, this book chronicles a young man´s burgeoning friendship with one of the twentieth century´s greatest thinkers.
From the #1 New York Times bestseller Black Hawk Down to the critically acclaimed Killing Pablo, Mark Bowden has been praised for his unique, novelistic ability to put his reader in the heat of the story. His acclaimed works of investigative journalism have been published around the world to tremendous success and have sold over 3 million copies. Road Work collects Bowden?s award-winning non-fiction, from his breakout stories for the Philadelphia Inquirer to his most recent high-profile pieces in Rolling Stone, the New Yorker, and The Atlantic.Road Work takes us everywhere from a small town in Rhode Island where one of the largest cocaine rings in history is uncovered, to the Luangwa Valley in Zambia where a bold team of anti-poachers fights to save the fate of the black rhinoceros. The Kabul-Ki Dance´´ invites us into the high-adrenaline world of the 391st Fighter Squadron of Idaho as it wages the air war over Afghanistan, and shows us what happens when raw emotion comes up against the clinical precision of modern war. Bowden?s high-profile look at Saddam Hussein, nominated for a National Magazine Award, shed such new and dramatic light on one of the world?s most notorious figures that it has been optioned for film. And his shocking expose on the dark art of interrogation, also nominated for a National Magazine Award, offers an insider´s eye into the unique and controversial ways in which we are fighting the war on terrorism.Road Work offers fascinating glimpses into the closely guarded lives of public figures such as Al Sharpton, Norman Mailer, and Mike Schmidt, and also features the uniquely humanistic brand of sports reporting that won acclaim for Bringing the Heat.

He sleeps only four or five hours a night, keeps his desk immaculate, and tests all his food for poison.Bowden reveals that Hussein was a novelist of romantic potboilers.The Art of Interrogation - Bowden discusses effective ways of interrogation in order to gather intelligence and thwart terrorism. Among these, are the torture lite method, acid tests method, monkey orgasms, and alligator clips. Torture lite includes sleep deprivation, exposure to heat or cold, the use of drugs to cause confusion, rough treatment, and forcing a prisoner to stand for days at a time or to sit in uncomfortable positions... Bowden also explores facts and rumors-- and the complicated legal issues-- surrounding the controversial terrorist holding facility in Guantanamo BayKabulki Dance - A look inside the cockpit with the pilots and weapons-systems officers of the 391st Fighter Squadron. These men are the top guns of the US air war in Afghanistan. Bowden explores the emotional human´s place in an impersonal, technologized war environment.Al Sharpton profile - a fascinating portrait of this controversial figure published in the AtlanticSalon Republican National Convention 2000 -- ´´Republicans have zeroed in on the one thing the Democrats cannot defend: Clinton´s slick willy.´´ Bowden reportes from the highly orchestrated Republican convention, in which the Republicans aim to down-play their ´´devisive social priorities´´ and portray George W. Bush as the kinder, gentler candidate.The Game of a Lifetime - A portrait of the ´´Turkey Game´´-- the nearly century-old Thanksgiving-day high school football rivalry between the Kirkwood Pioneers and the Webster Groves Statesman of the St. Louis suburbs.

Genetically modified crops are the crops whose genetic makeup is changed. The technology enables you to transfer the genome of one organism and allow it to be inserted to another organism. The genetic makeup of an organism specifies its characteristic features. The genetic material of all plants and animals are made of DNA which stands for Deoxyribonucleic Acid. DNA of the organism carries the set of instruction to produce enzymes which carry out the chemical reactions which take place in an organism as a whole. These chemical reactions are numerous and are often interlinked like a complex web. Enzymes are proteins which are important in the biochemical functioning of an organism. DNA also has instructions to produce other proteins which make up the structural features of an organism. For example, the DNA of a plant determines its height, size and shape of leaves, type of flowers, colour of the flower etc. These are visible characters which are cumulatively called as the phenotype.
Un recueil de poésie où se côtoienthaïkus, méditations poétiques et écriture hors des chemins classiques.Ce second recueil de poésie d?Alain Fontaine vous entraîne dans un tourbillon décousu de petites sucreries parfois acides (Mort d?une catin), souvent tendres (Avant de m?en aller) ou amusantes (Juste un mot ? tard le soir). Tantôt profonds ou légers, ces tableaux nous incitent à nous arrêter, sourire, profiter, méditer. « Revivent ces instants où le c?ur vagabond a arrêté le temps, l´espace d´un frisson ! »Entre deux interrogations sur la quête qui anime le poète, « pausez-vous » le temps d?une respiration sur ses « coucous façon Haïku ». Lecteurs, écrivains et écrivaillons, poètes et rimailleurs, chansonniers et rêveurs qui cherchez les mots justes pour densifier les mystères du c?ur et qui vous heurtez implacablement aux voies de l?indicible, peut-être trouverez-vous ici, en dehors des chemins de la prosodie classique, quelques éléments pour nourrir vos émotions et vos aspirations.L?auteur vous invite à nouveau pour ce deuxième Bazar Poétique : venez flâner avec lui, en jouant sur les formes, l?émotion, et en partageant ses interrogations à la recherche de l?âme du poète : qui est-il ?Dans le second volume de ces Bazars Poétiques, prenez le temps de partager les réflexions et plaisirs du poète.EXTRAIT De Mort d´une catinLes couleurs de la mort t?invitent à leur sabbat.Le jour te semble gore et tu sombres déjà.Si ton âme vicieuse offrait ton corps aux chiens,Dans tes nuits vaporeuses, tu fus belle putain. Tu t?échoues, pourriture dans ta fange insipide.Sans fard ni fioriture tu rejoins le grand vide.Qui gardera de toi le moindre souvenirA part ces vieux soldats que tu as fait jouir ?À PROPOS DE L´AUTEURAlain Fontaine : passionné, la Vie lui a attribué son tripe A : Apprendre, Aider, Aimer. Il aime jouer avec les mots tantôt avec provocation, souvent avec auto dérision, toujours avec tendresse. Il s?inspire de ses rencontres pour nourrir son esprit vagabond, imaginant sans relâche ce que peut vivre ou ressentir « l?autre » : le poète en manque d?inspiration, le condamné à mort?

Biofortification, which can be defined as the process of increasing the content/density of essential nutrients and/or its bioavailability of food with valuable compounds, is a promising means of increasing nutrient intakes. Traditional fortification practices in which exogenous nutrients are added to food can increase the content of nutrients but the use of biofortified foods with nutrients also may deliver the compounds in a more available form, as well as boost the overall relative effectiveness of these foods in raising nutrients status. Food Biofortification Technologies presents the state of the art in the field of novel methods of fortification and agricultural treatments as a way to improve the quality of obtained food products or compounds enriched with valuable nutrients. The book deals with fortification methods and agricultural treatments, which can improve the quality of food products or other agricultural compounds, providing them with a higher density of valuable nutrients. The utilization of novel products, such as feed additives and fertilizers, can avert nutrients depletion in food products. The book describes new and conventional methods of introducing valuable compounds into food components and presents the application of biosorption, bioaccumulation, and utilization of fertilizers in obtaining designer food. Attention is paid to the use of biomass as the carrier of nutrients such as microelements into the food components. The chapters are dedicated to specific food products and their nutrient components. The first chapter discusses the agronomic biofortification with micronutrients where the fertilization strategies are pointed out as a key to plant/cereals fortification. Other chapters present the fortification of animal foodstuffs such as meat, fish, milk, and eggs as well as the fortification of plant foodstuffs such as vegetables, fruits, and cereals. The book also explores advances in food fortification with vitamins and co-vitamins, essential minerals, essential fatty and amino acids, phytonutrients, and enzymes.
