Report sulla potente tecnica della concatenazione a cascata. Attraverso questa incredibile tecnica di memoria, creata da alcuni tra i pi� grandi mnemonisti della storia, � possibile memorizzare qualunque tipo di informazione. Le sue applicazioni sono infinite e sono particolarmente utili in tutti quei casi in cui sia necessaria una memorizzazione rapida ed efficace. Il testo � inteso come report perch� � un'anticipazione su un lavoro pi� ampio di prossima pubblicazione e tratta specificamente una sola tecnica di memoria, una delle pi� potenti. Questo ne giustifica il prezzo estremamente contenuto, ma le informazioni in esso contenuto sono utilissime in tutti quei casi in cui sia necessario memorizzare in maniera rapida ed efficace: Liste, vocaboli, testi, ecc. La tecnica pu� essere appresa in un tempo brevissimo e, grazie all'analisi delle sue applicazioni (ad esempio il suo utilizzo nella memorizzazione delle parole chiave di un testo), si rivela indispensabile quando il tempo per memorizzare � estremamente ridotto.
Oxide Based Materials

Publisher: Elsevier Science Limited
The International Workshop "New sources, novel phases, new applications", the third of the series on "Oxide based materials", was held September 13 to 16, 2004 at Societá del Casino Sociale in Como, Italy. The workshop brought together experimental and theoretical scientists of different origins and expertise to exchange information on common scientific research fields, especially on all those materials whose features and properties depend on the interaction between surface and ionic and/or molecular species. Knowledge of familiar materials was compared and experiences shared on a varied range of different materials, often new materials, including metal oxides, zeolites and other microporous compounds, mesoporous silicates and silica, hybrid inorganic-organic compounds, soil aggregates, layered materials, and bioactive glasses. * Brings together experimental and theoretical information * Provides information on new oxide-based materials with applications in catalysis, pollution control and nanoengineering * Contributions from experts in the field
Alphonse, a young Walloon officer, is travelling to join his regiment in Madrid in 1739. But he soon finds himself mysteriously detained at a highway inn in the strange and varied company of thieves, brigands, cabbalists, noblemen, coquettes and gypsies, whose stories he records over sixty-six days. The resulting manuscript is discovered some forty years later in a sealed casket, from which tales of characters transformed through disguise, magic and illusion, of honour and cowardice, of hauntings and seductions, leap forth to create a vibrant polyphony of human voices. Jan Potocki (1761-1812) used a range of literary styles - gothic, picaresque, adventure, pastoral, erotica - in his novel of stories-within-stories, which, like the Decameron and Tales from the Thousand and One Nights, provides entertainment on an epic scale.

Metaphors of Memory
Author: D. Draaisma
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
What is memory? It is at the same time ephemeral, unreliable and essential to everything we do. Without memory we lose our sense of identity, reasoning, even our ability to perform simple physical tasks. Yet it is also elusive and difficult to define, and throughout the ages philosophers and psychologists have used metaphors as a way of understanding it. First published in 2000, this fascinating book takes the reader on a guided tour of these metaphors of memory from ancient times to the present day. Crossing continents and disciplines, it provides a compelling history of ideas about the mind by exploring the way these metaphors have been used - metaphors often derived from the techniques and instruments developed over the years to store information, ranging from wax tablets and books to photography, computers and even the hologram. Accessible and thought-provoking, this book should be read by anyone who is interested in memory and the mind.

The Biology of Lakes and Ponds
Author: Christer Brönmark, Lars-Anders Hansson
Publisher: Oxford University Press
A concise but comprehensive introduction to the biology of standing waters (lakes and ponds). As with other books in the Biology of Habitats Series, the emphasis in this book is on the organisms that dominate freshwater environments. Management and conservation aspects are also considered. The first edition of the book published in 1998 with a second, revised edition in 2005. There has been significant development in the field since the last revision appeared, particularly in the ecology of lakes and ponds in subtropical and tropical areas, and a new revision of this now classic text is timely.
