Dust To Dust from the Author: Keith McNair. Detective David Chandler grew up as a tough-minded streetwise kid who in later years found that life although cruel and cold was also a blessing in disguise if properly travelled. Rarely setting his heart adrift, Chandler lived on an island surrounded by an impenetrable field generated by his mind’s eye. However, Chandler’s life and the things that gave it a sense of purpose would cause him to question his sense of right and wrong. Denton Thorn was a young man who realized early on in life that he was born for a unique purpose. Neither pride nor the false riches the world had to offer would cause him to lose focus. Denton took his task to heart believing that the injustices of the world must be addressed and wherever possible rectified. This was his calling, this was his fate. Finding the balance between good and evil will never go unchallenged, as one will always seek to dominate the other. For it is written that the embodiment of evil versus the physical nature of good will remain forever at war. Two men thrust in the path of the other’s belief. Yet, only one can remain standing to claim the spoils of victory.

Aeolian Dust And Dust Deposits from the Author: Kenneth Pye. Aeolian Dust and Dust Deposits explores the entrainment, dispersion, and deposition of aeolian dust and dust deposits, with emphasis on transport and deposition of dust derived by deflation of surface sediments and soils. Topics covered range from the mechanisms of fine-particle formation to dust sources, sinks, and rates of deposition. Dust-transporting wind systems are also discussed, along with the grain size, mineralogy, and chemical composition of aeolian dust. Comprised of nine chapters, this book begins with an overview of the general nature and significance of windborne dust as well as the importance of aeolian dust and loess. The next chapter deals with the mechanisms underlying the formation of fine particles, including glacial grinding, frost and salt weathering, and fluvial comminution. The reader is then introduced to dust entrainment, transport, and deposition, together with dust sources, sinks, and rates of deposition. Subsequent chapters focus on the implications of dust deflation, transport, and deposition; dust deposition in the oceans; and loess distribution and the thickness and morphology of loess deposits. This monograph is written primarily for research workers and advanced students in sedimentology, geomorphology, and Quaternary studies, but is also likely to be of value to soil scientists, meteorologists, planetary geologists, engineers, and others concerned with environmental management.

From Dust To Stars from the Author: Norbert S. Schulz. Studies of stellar formation in galaxies have a profound impact on our understanding of the present and the early universe. The book describes complex physical processes involved in the creation of stars and during their young lives. It illustrates how these processes reveal themselves from radio wavelengths to high energy X-rays and gamma -rays, with special reference towards high energy signatures. Several sections devoted to key analysis techniques demonstrate how modern research in this field is pursued.

Beloved Dust from the Author: Robert Davis Hughes, III. There has been an explosion of interest in classical Christian spirituality over the past 50 years. While a great deal of work has been done on the history of Christian spirituality, there has been no full-scale theological and pastoral treatment of Christian spiritual life since before the Second Vatican Council. Beloved Dust takes a realistic, contemporary view of human being as entirely physical (dust) and shows it immersed in three great tides of the Holy Spirit, the traditional threefold rhythm of conversion, transfiguration, and glory. What is unique about Robert Hughes's approach is the effort to root spiritual theology in the doctrine of the Spirit, an outgrowth of the renewed interest in the Trinity among both Catholics (Karl Rahner) and Protestants (Robert Jenson). Also striking is Hughes's emphasis on "ordinary life". Here as a married Episcopal priest/theologian who brings a distinctly "Protestant" perspective to a traditionally "Catholic" enterprise for so long the preserve of celibate priests. What he achieves is a new presentation of the traditional teaching in the light of contemporary knowledge and practice.

Dust In The Universe from the Author: M. E. Bailey. Proceedings of a conference at the Department of Astronomy, U. of Manchester, Dec. 1987. More than ten years after the last comprehensive review of this subject, Bailey and Williams present this overview, at the professional level, of many aspects of cosmic dust. Dust is an important component of the material between the stars, and it can be observed visually, in the ultraviolet, and the infrared parts of the spectrum. Dust plays an important part in star formation and is a major source of obscuration in galaxies. Fifty-five papers summarize the present understanding of the nature of cosmic dust. Observational data are reported and interpreted. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
