With expert descriptions and hundreds of never before seen images, the all encompassing Panoramic Ophthalmoscopy: Optomap® Images and Interpretation is the perfect resource for optometrists, ophthalmologists, ophthalmic technicians, residents, and students who would like to learn more about and would like to benefit from this revolutionary technology.



We are well into a second age of digital information. Our information is moving from the desktop to the laptop to the "palmtop" and up into an amorphous cloud on the Web. How can one manage both the challenges and opportunities of this new world of digital information? What does the future hold? This book provides an important update on the rapidly expanding field of personal information management (PIM). Part I (Always and Forever) introduces the essentials of PIM. Information is personal for many reasons. It's the information on our hard drives we couldn't bear to lose. It's the information about us that we don't want to share. It's the distracting information demanding our attention even as we try to do something else. It's the information we don't know about but need to. Through PIM, we control personal information. We integrate information into our lives in useful ways. We make it "ours." With basics established, Part I proceeds to explore a critical interplay between personal information "always" at hand through mobile devices and "forever" on the Web. How does information stay "ours" in such a world? Part II (Building Places of Our Own for Digital Information) will be available in the Summer of 2012, and will consist of the following chapters: Chapter 5. Technologies to eliminate PIM?: We have seen astonishing advances in the technologies of information management -- in particular, to aid in the storing, structuring and searching of information. These technologies will certainly change the way we do PIM; will they eliminate the need for PIM altogether? Chapter 6. GIM and the social fabric of PIM: We don't (and shouldn't) manage our information in isolation. Group information management (GIM) -- especially the kind practiced more informally in households and smaller project teams -- goes hand in glove with good PIM. Chapter 7. PIM by design: Methodologies, principles, questions and considerations as we seek to understand PIM better and to build PIM into our tools, techniques and training. Chapter 8. To each of us, our own.: Just as we must each be a student of our own practice of PIM, we must also be a designer of this practice. This concluding chapter looks at tips, traps and tradeoffs as we work to build a practice of PIM and "places" of our own for personal information.

 Over the course of American history, the United States of America, and its sister republics in Ibero-America, have had their sovereignties and development constantly threatened and often undermined by imperial machinations: assassinations, drug running, cultural warfare, rigged scandals, senseless military engagements, coups, currency runs, etc. Every thinking patriot of whatever nation has long sought the overthrow of the British Empire in order to secure a sovereign, peaceful and prosperous future for his or her nation.

Lyndon LaRouche has long identified the combination of the United States, Russia, China and India as the minimum array of power necessary to finally shut down the Anglo-Dutch Imperial System.

Today, in 2018, the British Empire has been forced out into the open. It is no longer a secret known only to historians, diplomats, and intelligence agencies, that the hand of the British Empire has been directly intervening into, and often decisively, America’s (as well as nearly every other nation’s) political affairs for decades if not centuries. The possibility of the Four Powers finally coming together to overthrow the Empire, establish Mr. LaRouche’s New Bretton Woods fixed exchange rate credit system, and create what Mrs. Helga Zepp-LaRouche and the Schiller Institute call The New Paradigm of relations among nations based upon cooperative development of science, technology and infrastructure—from Earth into the galaxy—has thrown the Empire into self-exposure and self-destructive, fearful, aggressive fits.

This book, by bringing the power of Truth to bear upon the Empire, and making easily accessible Mr. LaRouche’s clarity about the actions required of the Four Powers, will accelerate the final demise of the Empire and its replacement by a beautiful future for all (including the currently hysterical tentacles of Empire).

In addition to Mr. LaRouche’s outlines of the actions required of the Four Powers, a series of appendices are include to facilitate better mutual understanding among the people and leaders of the Four Powers. The better the peoples of the Four Powers understand each other, the better they will be able to work together to take the measures immediately necessary, and in the long run jointly work on the great project of developing civilization as a whole.

Modern plasma physics, encompassing wave-particle interactions and collec tive phenomena characteristic of the collision-free nature of hot plasmas, was founded in 1946 when 1. D. Landau published his analysis of linear (small amplitude) waves in such plasmas. It was not until some ten to twenty years later, however, with impetus from the then rapidly developing controlled fusion field, that sufficient attention was devoted, in both theoretical and experimental research, to elucidate the importance and ramifications of Landau's original work. Since then, with advances in laboratory, fusion, space, and astrophysical plasma research, we have witnessed important devel opments toward the understanding of a variety of linear as well as nonlinear plasma phenomena, including plasma turbulence. Today, plasma physics stands as a well-developed discipline containing a unified body of powerful theoretical and experimental techniques and including a wide range of appli cations. As such, it is now frequently introduced in university physics and engineering curricula at the senior and first-year-graduate levels. A necessary prerequisite for all of modern plasma studies is the under standing oflinear waves in a temporally and spatially dispersive medium such as a plasma, including the kinetic (Landau) theory description of such waves. Teaching experience has usually shown that students (seniors and first-year graduates), when first exposed to the kinetic theory of plasma waves, have difficulties in dealing with the required sophistication in multidimensional complex variable (singular) integrals and transforms.
With its theme, "Our Information, Always and Forever," Part I of this book covers the basics of personal information management (PIM) including six essential activities of PIM and six (different) ways in which information can be personal to us. Part I then goes on to explore key issues that arise in the "great migration" of our information onto the Web and into a myriad of mobile devices. Part 2 provides a more focused look at technologies for managing information that promise to profoundly alter our practices of PIM and, through these practices, the way we lead our lives. Part 2 is in five chapters: - Chapter 5. Technologies of Input and Output. Technologies in support of gesture, touch, voice, and even eye movements combine to support a more natural user interface (NUI). Technologies of output include glasses and "watch" watches. Output will also increasingly be animated with options to "zoom". - Chapter 6. Technologies to Save Our Information. We can opt for "life logs" to record our experiences with increasing fidelity. What will we use these logs for? And what isn’t recorded that should be? - Chapter 7. Technologies to Search Our Information. The potential for personalized search is enormous and mostly yet to be realized. Persistent searches, situated in our information landscape, will allow us to maintain a diversity of projects and areas of interest without a need to continually switch from one to another to handle incoming information. - Chapter 8. Technologies to Structure Our Information. Structure is key if we are to keep, find, and make effective use of our information. But how best to structure? And how best to share structured information between the applications we use, with other people, and also with ourselves over time? What lessons can we draw from the failures and successes in web-based efforts to share structure? - Chapter 9. PIM Transformed and Transforming: Stories from the Past, Present and Future. Part 2 concludes with a comparison between Licklider’s world of information in 1957 and our own world of information today. And then we consider what the world of information is likely to look like in 2057. Licklider estimated that he spent 85% of his "thinking time" in activities that were clerical and mechanical and might (someday) be delegated to the computer. What percentage of our own time is spent with the clerical and mechanical? What about in 2057?
